this little boy man is the best character

In the second film, Yondu’s role is vastly expanded. We discover that the real reason he didn’t bring Quill to his father, Ego, wasn’t actually because Quill was a child and therefore small enough to gain access to places grown men couldn’t reach.

The reasons weren’t selfish at all.

Instead, Yondu was protecting Peter from a capricious deity with a murderous intent. “He may have been your father, Quill,” Yondu says of Ego as he rescues Star-Lord, “but he wasn’t your daddy.”

Yondu was.

We crash headlong into the revelation: This dangerous man with his crazy whistle-arrow-of-death and crew of thieves and ne’erdowells is in fact one of the bravest people we’ve ever encountered in the MCU films, going up against a diabolical Celestial to save a little boy’s life.

Then Yondu dies, saving his boy. It’s just another in a litany of heroics that Yondu never boasts about, never lays claim to. It’s beautiful and sad and by far the best death the MCU has given us. The death and the scene after are among the most riveting in any of these films.


Yondu isn’t Captain America or Iron Man in terms of his importance to the franchise, but he’s not a minor character either. As Paul Tassi points out, he’s the real star of the second Guardians film (or Michael Rooker is, in any case.) He stole the show, sure, but I’d go one further and say that he’s become one of the most significant figures in the MCU period.

- Erik Kain for Forbes: Why ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy 2’ Is The Most Important Marvel Movie In Years

Actually I really appreciate all the mp100 antagonists. They’re so varied in scale and character, the only common denominator is that most of them try very hard to better themselves after coming into contact with Mob. That’s so Nice compared to the vast majority of super hero fiction where the villains are just beaten into submission and that’s that.

I can’t think of any other story in the same kind of genre where a couple of former terrorists ending up as super market clerks and another going back to school after having been isolated from normal society for half his life is unironically celebrated as a great and admirable thing? And it’s never in a way where tragic backstories or difficult circumstances excuse their actions, but more of a general philosophy that it’s never too late to realize that you can be a better person. Maybe not a great person, but a better one.

That aside the antagonist lineup in this series sounds like an insane mess. I mean, look at this:

  • Dimple: An evil spirit wants to become a god and decides the best place to start is to form a cult and brainwash people into joining it. After Mob nearly exorcises him he tags onto the kid with an ulterior motive of manipulating or possessing him, but instead ends up becoming his friend (whoops)

  • Teruki: An egomaniacal 14 year old gang leader is so enraged when Mob dares suggest that he’s not as much of a special snowflake as he thinks he is that he nearly strangles him to death. After being obliterated by Mob’s autopilot death mode and general strength of character, he is so astonished by the boy that he IMMEDIATELY reforms himself like he found Jesus and the meaning of life.

  • Claw’s 7th branch: A branch of an esper terrorist group, led by a screechy little man who throws a temper tantrum when someone dares point out that he is a ridiculous, screechy little man. After a serious verbal smackdown from Reigen, most of the other espers come to terms with the fact that beating up children and terrorizing people weaker than themselves is pretty pathetic and cruel, and so they do their best to reintegrate into society.

  • Mogami and Minori: A relentless school bully is possessed by the world’s most bitter man and together they are the duo from hell. Well. There really is nothing funny or nice about this one. The world’s most bitter man learns nothing and Minori probably cries a lot.

  • Touichirou and the rest of Claw: The terrorists are back with their big boss who wants to take over the world in true super villain fashion. Everyone realizes he’s a huge jerk and band together to take him down. More ex-terrorists resolve to reintegrate into society as more wholesome people. One of them is a severely anxious mess who doesn’t have anywhere to go, so Mob and Reigen just kind of take him in. Just like that.

  • Broccoli/Psycho Helmet: Dimple reverts to his shady ways and manages to establish a pseudo-religion with the help of a giant, sentient broccoli (yep). The entire city ends up brainwashed and the broccoli goes rogue to protect itself from anyone trying to harm it. Dimple realizes he cares more about Mob than becoming a god and fucking dies saving the kid from death by large vegetable. Not cool.

  • Mob/???%: Mob’s autopilot death mode goes haywire after he is run down by a car. Everyone’s crying, nothing is fun. Why do you have to be like this, ONE :(

anonymous asked:

riles I'm gonna be honest with you I've never seen ok ko and I'm very confused who the FUCK is that Phineas Presley guy who loves the boo berry mascot

this ask confused me so much i googled who the people you said and agshdskfjgkfh ANYWAYS

this is RAYMOND. he’s one of the villain’s hench-robots/sons who likes to be dramatic and cause trouble for the main characters. he’s also really into sports. he’s only appeared in two episodes but in both of them he’s blushed at “the boo berry mascot’s” body and/or actions, and his actions have seemed a little flirtatious. also i think he’s part chicken/his design was inspired by a chicken but idk. 

NOW THIS IS MY BOY RAD RIGHT HERE. he’s a blue alien from planet X and he’s training to be a hero under the great hero gar (aka he works as a stockboy in gar’s store). he tries so hard to be a macho man, but he’s a big softie underneath. he’s one of the main characters and is best friends with k.o. and enid. he and raymond seem to be more irked by each other than the rest of them, and he likes going head-to-head with raymond. they even had a very feelsy dance off in the most recent episode. 

do i ship them? well….

…actually i do feel as though all of lord boxman’s (the main villain) robots/kids will rebel against him and turn to the good side at some point, especially considering how he treats them and how all of them could be foils for the main trio, so i very honestly can see the two of them becoming the good ol’ trope of enemies to awkward friends to boyfriends

We all learned that POV is important in Skam. Thats why a character seems so different every season. We se them through the eyes of the main. And that doesnt let us see all of them. Only the stuff our main is focusing on. Like Eva being a partygirl and kind of hurt by her ex when the main was Noora who chose to stay collected and was afraid of hurting Vilde or getting hurt herself.

Well I got to thinking. What does the characters look like through the eyes of the rest of the school? All the gossip and hate accounts made me think. What does some of the characters look like when you only know them through school yard gossip or soscial media?

Eva: stole the man of her best friend. The only girl taking care of her when she transfered from a different city. And then proceeded to cheat on him only a little over a year later. And now shes always drunk and hooking up with the same boy or strangers.

Noora: defends feministic views but ends up going for the fuckbuy the whole school knows her best friend has a crush on. As far as some people knows she even got drunk and spent the night naked in bed with his brother. Then she leaves this boyfriend in another country. And now shes hooking up with the friend of her best friends brother at parties.

Isak: snitches out his friend on a public gossip account on Instagram. Arranges street fights. Hookes up with girls at parties but never gets serious. Forgets one of his best friends birthday. Is suddenly gay. Brakes up a four year long relationship. Fights his other good friend, most likely because his homophobic. Gets into a fight with four arab dudes. Hes propably rascist. Made a hate account to get revenge after a brakeup to a girl even though his gay.

Sana: snaps and throws water in other girls faces at parties. Has Sharmuta written on her locker because shes so opressed. Is rude to everybody even though they just made one little comment. Just takes over the russebuss without anyone getting to wote for her or anything. And then she just leaves because shes to good for the whole russefeiring. And did you know she took a choke hold on someone at her last school?

Even: hes totally psycho. He wrote all this crazy shit on the facebook wall of his last school. He cant be trusted. He left his girlfriend because he cheated on her and aperantly he did it once before. Also hes away from school for long periods of a time and doesnt get in troubble because of the 10 percent. Hes cheating or theres something wrong with him

Elias: calls her sister slave and sends messages asking for nudes and fights people just because theyre gay

Vilde: shes a total slut. She threw herself at William. And shes always working out and watching her food, like what does she think she is. And shes always gossiping. And shes so stupid thinking brun og blid is a good sponsor. And did you notice her clothes still have the tags on. Does she return them to hide how poor she is, or does she steal them? And did you know her mom is propably alcoholic or homeless or something? And she sents messages with this guy about nudes and is probably cheating on Magnus. Because everybody knows hes more into her than shes into him.

Conclusion: pov changes how you see things (shocking revalation nr 1) and gossip is really dangerous (shocking revalation nr 2).

So what can we take from this in regards to season 4? Sana needs to talk to people! And she needs to hear the stories from the people in the stories. Not from third parties! And she cant always trust her pov. Sometimes there is more to it than what you saw or felt or thought in a situation.
Once Upon a Time Bosses Tease Rumple's Menacing New Identity, Regina/Henry's Reunion and More
The Rumple will not have fallen too far from the tree when Once Upon a Time’s Season 7 reset arrives this fall.
By Matt Webb Mitovich

The Rumple will not have fallen too far from the tree when Once Upon a Time‘s Season 7 reset arrives this fall.

After holding court at the Television Critics Association summer press tour on Sunday, Once co-creator Adam Horowitz told TVLine that just as the Evil Queen and Captain Hook have new personas in the Seattle neighborhood of Hyperion Heights, Robert Carlyle’s Rumpelstiltskin will be a bit (though not entirely) different, too.

“He looks menacing, doesn’t he?” the EP said of the Comic-Con trailer’s glimpse of Robert Carlyle, seen above. “There’s always that element of menace and mystery, and [Carlyle’s character] is involved in many of the goings-on in this neighborhood in Seattle. It’s a lot of fun and its another layer and color for Bobby to play.”

During the Once panel Q&A, Lana Parrilla shared that the Evil Queen’s Seattle persona isn’t even named Regina (“and thats’ cool”), that she is a bar owner who instead of pantsuits wears jeans and rock t-shirts. “It’s fun to be a part of something that’s constantly evolving,” said the series vet.

Colin O’Donoghue meanwhile said that Seattle policeman “Rogers” feels “a sense of loss, and he doesn’t know what it is, what’s missing” — other than the left hand the lawman is managing without. (Episode 2 of the new season will shed light on what became of Emma, to be played one more time in that episode by Jennifer Morrison.) “We know the characters inside and out, but [it’s like] we’re playing them for the first time,” said O’Donoghue, who hailed the first four scripts as among the best he has seen.

Parrilla also revealed that Regina and Henry “reunite after many years in a flashback [and] she’s taken aback” to see his grown self for the first time. “He is no longer this little boy. How does she deal with him as a man?”

When they cross paths in Hyperion Heights, however, mom and son will be strangers. “It’s cool and exciting [to play] an entirely different relationship,” said new series regular Andrew J. West.

thomas5252  asked:

Who's your favorite Gravity Falls character?

Why, only the man who took a boy under his wing and did his best to help raise him when his father left him.

The man who spent thirty years of his life toiling away in some basement with very little knowledge of what he was doing or how- to save his brother, whom he hasn’t seen for many years prior.

The man who took two MORE children under his wing, despite having many secrets and the ever-present possibility that Dipper and Mabel may somehow find Stan Pines Dead.

Especially as he was forced to keep his own newstory and IDs in his office to make sure he had a backup plan, right under said children’s nosy noses.

The man that was forced to live alone in a car for ten years out of his father’s spite.

Whose whole world could be kept in three photographs.

Who killed himself in his own mind.

And then killed his mind. All for those three pictures.

Stanley freaking Pines, everybody.

1. Twin Lilies by Saiyan_Lion   |   Rated T, 11k (WIP)

Summary: Ever wonder what price someone is willing to pay for a second chance at life? For Agape and Eros, a notorious mercenary team, they are willing to pay high for that chance.

If only a certain silver-haired agent from Russia would get off their tail.

  • Comment: A fic off to a good beginning, the relationship between Yuuri and Yurio is a strong point. The dynamic between Yuuri and Victor is amusing, and I’m quite curious to learn more about their backstories and how this fic continues to play out.

2. I Want It All by venoms   |   Rated T, 5k (WIP)

Summary: When Katsuki Yuuri misses the podium by half a point and finds himself in fourth place during the 2015 Grand Prix Final, he is ready to give up, but Yakov Feltsman sees something in him and offers to coach him the following season in Russia alongside his idol, Viktor Nikiforov and Yuri Plisetsky, whose next season is his senior debut.

  • Comment: A “vicchan lives” fic with only the first chapter out, but off to a good start. I look forward to how it continues — the writing is really interesting at times (a visual pun at one point, which brought me amusement) and all in all a fic to watch, I think.

3. That April (you were knowable) by llythl    |    Rated T, 10k (WIP)

Summary: “He said there were dead bodies buried beneath the tree,” Victor explains, eyes wide.

Yuuri remembers his sister telling him in passing that Victor could not be more typical as a tourist - possessing a charming naivete that was really only charming when it was not doing any harm.

Hasetsu shenanigans: Set just after Victor and Yuri (Plisetsky) arrive in Hasetsu. On Yuuri learning - and re-learning.

  • Comment: A touching fic, sort of in-between episodes fic based off of official art. The author captures a tentative feeling of the early stages of Yuuri and Victor’s relationship in Hasetsu, like a fragile thing you can cup in your hands. I don’t know how to describe it precisely, but this fic captures that early phase of a relationship so well. Intensely recommend. 

4. Wishin’ and Hopin’ by darlingholocene   |   Rated T, 7k (WIP)

Summary: “I know as well as you do that you’re a big romantic at heart, or you wouldn’t be the most requested wedding planner in New York City. Maybe it’s time you give the City a chance”.

Or, the one where Victor organizes weddings for a living but has never been in love, Katsuki Yuuri is a very stressed best man of honor, Chris wants Victor to pull a Jennifer Lopez and Yurio would very much like to be excluded from this narrative.

  • Comment: YES. Yuuri is fumbling and hilarious, and Victor’s office is full of concerned employees that love him enough to jokingly mock him in an office group chat. The dynamic amusing so far, and Victor’s character makes me ache, a little. I hope to see him growing happier soon. (Also god bless Mila and Chris)

5. the basics of flight by seunggilonice, tremelo (glissendo)    |  Rated T, 8k (WIP)

Summary: The story of a boy with wings and a boy without.

"Aren’t you mad at me? I kind of lost you all your friends,” Seunggil says. It’s like a dam broke on his emotions. His words are angry. Frustrated.

The puzzle pieces click into place. “No. Those guys were being assholes; someone had to shut them up,” Phichit says. “You don’t owe me anything, you know?”

Seunggil exhales. “You’re not wingless. You wouldn’t know anything about owing.”

Phichit searches for a good answer to that, his wings blue and bright and accusing on his back, cutting off any decent argument. “Can I at least eat lunch with you tomorrow?”

Seunggil sends him a pained glance. “You want to eat lunch with me?”

“It’s a good bathroom.”

Seunggil looks like he’s wondering after Phichit’s sanity. “Yeah. Why not.”

  • Comment: I’m starting to associate glissendo with really well-written Seung-gil POV. The setting has my attention, and the relationship that’s developed between Phichit and Seung-gil and Guang-Hong and Leo makes me very happy. I hope things go well, and I early await future developments. The worldbuilding is really well-done, too, and I’m invested in the mechanics of this world. The plot definitely has my attention too!

ships are ships and it doesn’t really matter how they are in canon, and objectively jota//kak is an appealing, age-appropriate ship - it’s the ship in part 3 most people can hone on to immediately, because it’s just that likable! - but just like jotaro, people like to… well, waste its potential and bend it to suit their tastes.

kakyoin is constantly stripped of his personality in order to make him an accessory to jotaro. it either goes that his “feminine” traits are accentuated to the point of him being nothing more than an occasionally snarky waifu companion for jotaro, or he’s turned into some sort of sex-obsessed dominatrix because people think his stand is kinky (keep in mind, he’s canonically underage no matter what part you put him in).

people almost always end up supporting some sort of ooc variation of jotaro and kakyoin (again ridding jotaro of his flaws and ridding kakyoin of, well, everything) because in reality - as araki himself admitted at the end of jojonium 12 - they have very little chemistry. but really, his word doesn’t mean much since it’s the fandom that brings pairings life; yet, even if they were best friends in canon, i still feel like the destruction of kakyoin’s character would have happened anyways because of the dom/sub (or seme/uke) ideals many fans tend to apply when celebrating m/m pairings, and kakyoin and jotaro’s general designs almost encourage it (hypermasculine man/reserved, “feminine” man) which is really just unfortunate.

tldr: jota//kak is not my personal cup of tea because people tend to break both boys’ characters (particularly kakyoin) in order to fit a model of dom/sub, which is an unfortunate issue in m/m shipping, and oversexualize 17-year-old kakyoin for it.

“Do you…” the man trails off, frowning. “Do you dislike Prince Otabek?” he asks quietly.

Yuri arches his eyebrows. “I’ve never met Prince Otabek,” he says truthfully. “But if he has to go to all this trouble to find someone to marry him, then logically, there must be something wrong with him.”

Altin - Otayuri  by strangerphans - 7901 (WIP)


Yuri Nikiforov-Plisetsky is a brat. His adoptive father, Victor Nikiforov, is King of Russia, the whole world loves him and he can get anything he wants with a click of his fingers.

Since he’s spoiled boy who sets his expectations too high, Yuri fires his personal servant after she makes one wrong move and sets out to find a new one. It takes time but he eventually finds the one.

Otabek Altin is perfect in every way possible. He’s stunning, his voice is soft and his rare smiles are bright. He couldn’t wish for a better job- looking after Prince Yuri is great. The two act more like best friends rather than master and servant.

But then Yuri starts feeling things. Things he shouldn’t be feeling towards another man. Before he can confess to Otabek, the Kazakhstani man is being dragged down to the dungeons.

Amazing so far but I feel an angsty storm coming!

Heir To The Throne. by  fangirl6202 - 1862 (WIP)


Though no one knows why, Kings Nikiforov and Katsuki have decided to step down from their throne of Yutopia, leaving the 23 year old Heir to the throne, Yuri Plisetsky, nephew of King Victor, scrambling to ascend into the Royal Line.One thing all his advisers keep reminding him is the tiny fact that Yuri hasn’t betrothed. Centuries of traditions state that an heir must be at least promised to a beloved to ascend to King. He decides to throw together a ball to celebrate the two Kings’ anniversary and invite diplomats and royalty from surrounding kingdoms, in hopes of finding a partner. He expects to be forced into a loveless marriage, but instead meets the brooding Otabek Altin. Yuri thinks that’s worse, since Otabek is a conceited, smug, pretentious bastard. Not to mention the Crown Prince of the country on the verge of declaring war on Yutopia.

Of course, Yuri falls hard for him.

It only just started but it’s very interesting so far.

everytime I’ve watched a show and everytime I’ve seen viewers pick apart every single thing a character does later, i’m always kinda like ?? really ?? it can’t be thought out thAT well right? i’m sure actors don’t try to make it so that there’s something meaningful behind every single thing they do or every conversation they have or every glance they share with someone else

but honestly after reading that interview matt did a little while ago my perspective on that completely changed because this boy really thinks everything through, doesn’t he? he tries his absolute hardest to stay true to alec lightwood, right down to the smallest details; every single thing he does, every conversation he has and every glance he shares with someone else

 and honestly man I respect matt as an actor, and a person in general, so much ?? because he truly cares for his character and wants to portray him the best he can, more than I’ve seen any actor do and to see how much thought he’s put into playing alec is so wonderful and really, you can so obviously see to what extent that goes, because alec is such a good character.

so basically what i’m trying to say is that i think matthew daddario is a marvelous actor who puts in so much time and effort into his character and this show and I love him so much for that, god bless him

Who is your favorite character in Saiyuki and why?

Goku has always been my favorite character in Saiyuki for so many reasons. Saiyuki really has been a coming of age story for him and he’s changed so much.

Long post ahead. Who’s surprised? I talk a lot.

When we are first introduced to him we see a young man who appears to be a perpetually hungry goofball, immature and quick to get into trouble. What starts to unravel is a character with a little bit more of a complex background. The events of Gaiden bring tragic back story to the young man. Despite having his memories sealed away and being imprisoned for 500 years, Goku is incredibly upbeat.

He doesn’t take his freedom for granted and has a pretty positive outlook on life. Goku is friendly to everyone he meets, even enemies, making him a very charismatic character. He is determined, loyal, and fiercely protective of his companions.

I loved Goku in Gaiden. In a way this little boy was the bravest of the group and on several occasions offered to turn himself in to save his best friends. To lose them all one at a time was traumatic to such a young child, especially one who was technically a lot younger than he seemed.

And then we have the enigma that surrounds Goku, his other form Seiten Taisei. I know this side of him is going to have some importance in the future considering how almost every important villain or deity knows about him.

Hell even Ukoku was trying to get him out of the picture but probably had no idea how powerful the sage really is with having the ability to heal.

Seiten’s not just a rampaging monster, but a lot more complex than meets the eye. It’s clear that he has something to do with Goku’s memories and it feels like any time he’s released the visions become clearer. Let’s also not forget that Seiten is not heartless, crying at the deaths of his friends and trying to starve himself to death out of grief. Being nearly immortal must have been truly painful for him at that point.

I’m also a firm believer that (at least current) Goku would be quite attractive to almost any character thanks to his charisma and good hearted nature. A lot of folks think he’s too young to be in any relationship, but I don’t see it that way. In the beginning of Saiyuki he was mentally immature, but technically old enough to be in a relationship.

Now? Goku’s grown up quite a lot. He may have a baby face, but he’s definitely a man.

The Big Day

Title: The Big Day
Rating: PG (Mild Language)
Characters/Pairings: Roman Reigns/OC, Dean Ambrose/Renee Young
Disclaimer: I own nothing but this small piece of fiction. All recognizable names belong to their respective owners.
Summary: The best man always gives the groom a little speech before he says I Do. It turns out to be a big day for the both of them.

-The Big Day-

“Alright boys, disperse! This shindig goes down in a half hour and the best man needs to have a little chit-chat with the man of the hour…” Dean’s face lit up, watching the other groomsmen look over at him as he came through the door. Matt Anoa'i, Jimmy and Jey Uso as well as Seth Rollins all gave the groom a final hug and a handshake before filing out past Ambrose to help user in guests as they arrived to the resort.

“Should I sit down for this?” Roman laughed, watching Dean walk toward him. Both men were dressed in crisp suits and ties, not a hair out of place. Dean motioned for two chairs next to huge bay windows, dark blue Atlantic Ocean as far as the eye could see in either aerial direction.

“Yeah, you probably should. I’m about to go all emotional best friend–best man on you.” They share a hearty laugh as they both take a seat. Looking down from the window you could see the wedding grounds on the back lawn of the Oceanside resort. White chairs lined in rows on either side of the isle covered in fuchsia colored rose petals. The warm, early morning south Florida sun beamed brightly.

Roman leaned over with his elbows on his knees as he waited for the first of Dean’s many speeches for his big day. Ambrose may not have very many serious bones in his body and was usually the one making everyone laugh but when it came down to it, he could move mountains with his words when they truly came from his heart.

“Dude, when I woke up this morning and realized today was the day, I still couldn’t wrap my head around it. I can’t believe after all that skirt we chased you’re finally settling down with one woman..” Roman smiled, watching the guests start to file out to their seats as the movement caught his light gray eyes.

“So your big opening statement is reminding me how much of manwhore I was? All of a sudden I’m not so sure I want you to make that speech at the reception later…” Dean thumped him in the arm with his fist in response.

“Shut up man, I’d never say shit like that in front of your family. You’ve got half the damn Isle of Samoa down there… But seriously man, I just never saw you as the guy that would take the plunge is all. Hell, I never thought I’d have a girlfriend either but I wouldn’t trade Renee for the world. And I know you wouldn’t trade [Y/N] either. I’ve watched you grow into an even better man than I thought you were these last two and a half years because of her. She brings out the best in you.”

Roman looked Dean square in the eye, seeing the emotion there. It was rare for him to get on this level but today was a special occasion and he wanted to make sure his best friend knew exactly how he felt and that he had his blessing before saying I Do.

“When I went to check on Renee a few minutes ago I saw her…” He paused, putting his hand on Roman’s shoulder giving it a squeeze. “Dude never in a million years could you imagine how stunning she looks today. You’re going to lose your mind when she comes down that isle, I promise you that.” Roman’s smile turned into a giddy grin as he tried to picture seeing his beautiful bride for the first time as she walked down the isle to become his wife.

“I have no doubt she looks gorgeous man, she always does. Not to mention she’s been worrying over everything for the last six months…” Roman licked his lips and shifted in his seat. The anticipation was starting to build as he felt the tightening in his chest increase. He couldn’t believe the day was finally here either. Dean shook his head, knowing Roman didn’t fully understand what he was referring to.

“It isn’t that. It isn’t the dress, the hair, the shoes or the make-up. She’s a knockout man, anyone with eyes could see that from miles away. But today is different. Today is her wedding day. She hasn’t just been planning this for only six months, she’s been dreaming about this day since she was a little kid. Marrying you today will become the greatest day of her life. Every bit of emotion and love that she feels for you, you can see it on her face–in her eyes. That’s what stunned me. I could visible see it all.”

“I hope you can see that in me too..” Roman started, letting Dean’s words sink in. “I know we wrote our own vows and I know how good you and Seth thought they were when I read them last night but I still don’t think I’ve done justice. How are you supposed to put into words what your feel inside for the love of your life? Your soul mate?”

“Rome, don’t worry. Those vows are going to have every female in the joint reaching for the Kleenex. I’ve never seen you as happy as you are today. And I know as you start your lives together that will only continue. You and [Y/N] deserve all the happiness in the world…” Dean paused, running a shaky hand through his dirty blond hair. “As for knowing how to tell the love of your life what you feel inside, I’ll let you know.”

Roman eyed him, his eyebrows coming together at the tone he switched to. “What? You’ve got something up your sleeve Ambrose.. I can sense it.” Dean laughed.

“I’m going to ask Renee to marry me.” At first Roman thought he was kidding, honestly. Since he was getting married today, Ambrose was going to try to…

Roman saw that tell-tell gleam in Dean’s eye and the way he nervously began to shift in his seat now that he’d dropped this bombshell.

He wasn’t kidding.

“You’re serious?” Roman asked as he tightened the slick bun that his hair was tied up in.

“Oh I am, Uce…” Dean paused, smiling so big his dimples hurt. Roman looked at him, eyeing him again as his mouth fell open in shock. He never thought Dean would ever find the one even though Roman told him all the time how Renee was perfect for him.

“Seriously dude? You’re going to ask her? You bought a ring?” Roman questioned, still unable to wrap his mind around the fact that Dean definitely wasn’t kidding and actually planned to settle down just like Roman was doing today.

“Yeah, bro. I bought it last weekend during that sting of shows we did in New York. The more I thought about your wedding and the happier I saw [Y/N] get the closer we came to today I just.. I don’t know. I just feel like Renee is the one. Sometimes I feel like I’ve lost my mind but then I see her and I just know…”

“When are you going to ask her?” Roman asked, thankful that the spotlight was off him if only for a moment. It was helping to calm his own nerves seeing as he was about to give someone else his last name in a matter of minutes.

“Well…” Dean rubbed a hand across the stubble on his chin. “I was thinking about asking her at the end of my Best Man speech during your reception.. If you think that would be okay with [Y/N]. I don’t want her to think I’m trying to steal her thunder or anything…”

“No,” Roman chuckled, grinning at his best friend. “That’s her best friend. I think she’ll be just as excited and happy as Renee is going to be when you get down on one knee…” Roman paused, shaking his head. “Holy shit man, I never thought I’d see this day. We’re hanging up our bachelor boots and will be off the market for good!”

“I know man, can’t believe this old tag-team has finally met their match. Speaking of your match, the main event of your life is about to start,” Dean told him, standing up with Roman. They stared at each other a moment longer before hugging tightly like the brothers that they felt they truly were. Pulling back Dean adjusted Roman’s tie and dusted off the shoulders of his suit. “Let’s go give this little lady a last name she can’t pronounce.” Roman laughed, shaking his head as she followed Dean out the door and down to his wedding ceremony.
