warnings: Car crash, death, brain problems, hospitals, coma
Zoom taking Barry’s powers had been hard on him. Barry seemed out of it, as if without his speed, he was nothing, and it was driving him mad.
He knew that meta’s would attack even though the Flash couldn’t do anything, and he knew that robberies would continue, and fires, and everything that he tried to stop, would continue, and he couldn’t do anything about it.
Barry had promised you a while ago that the two of you would see a movie together, and he knew he had to keep that promise or he would have to deal with a slightly upset best friend.
“Oh come on Bar, you have to admit that movie was great!” You laughed walking out of the theatre.
“Okay, okay, I guess it was better than the sequel.”
“Sequels always suck. Well, most of them anyway.”
“Cheer up Barry! You’re being a Debbie Downer! Let’s get you some ice cream and make your day better.”
Barry smiled at your bubbliness and pulled you into a hug. That’s one of the reasons he loves having you as a close friend. You always bring out the best in people and you make other people happier, before making yourself happy.
You started walking in the direction of Central City Creamery laughing and talking with Barry, not really watching where you were going when you had to cross the intersection.
You turned and laughed at something Barry had said, and then heard a car horn blaring, then nothing. Not even Barry shouting your name.
Barry had made you laugh and you turned to smile at his joke when he heard the car blare its horn. Before he could pull you out of the way the car hit you.
Your body tumbled over the roof of the car and hit the ground behind it. When Barry got to you, you were already unconscious.
“Oh dear! I’m so sorry,” the man who hit you said running to where Barry was.
“Call an ambulance! Someone call an ambulance!” People were shouting around him.
”No. Not you. Anyone but you.” Barry was trying to get you to wake up.
Someone must have because paramedics pulled Barry away from you and loaded you into the car. They allowed Barry to ride in the back with you, but once at the hospital they told him to wait outside in the lobby.
Cisco and Caitlin arrived moments later, but Barry didn’t recall telling them about the accident.
“I was just going to call you, how did you know about the accident?” Barry asked after explaining what happened.
“Last time she got kidnapped I asked her if I could put a safety tracker in her. It tells me her vitals and her location because she gets injured so much. I saw her vitals drop and then saw her moving here so Caitlin and I got here as fast as we could.” Cisco explained.
“How is she doing?” Caitlin asked.
“I don’t know. She got knocked unconscious before I could get to her. I was so out of it I didn’t even see she was injured. I could have pulled her out of the way but I don’t have my speed and I got distracted because she was laughing.”
“It’s okay Bar. Come here.” Caitlin pulled Barry into a hug as a nurse came and found him.
“Did you arrive with (Y/N) (Y/L/N)?”
“Yes. Is everything okay?”
“So far, yes. There is just some information we are missing and you are one of the people on her contact papers.” The nurse handed Barry a clip board to fill out.
“How is she?”
“The worst of her injuries were on her head. She’s gone through some severe brain damage. We aren’t going to be able to measure it till she wakes up though.”
“But she is going to wake up right?”
“She’s going to need to fight. I’ve never seen someone with this much brain damage survive this long. I’ll tell you when she’s been moved to a room.”
A few hours later the nruse walked the group up to your room.
“I don’t know how to explain this but, she should be up right now. The doctors believe that when she hit her head that she damaged some on the nerve endings and went into a coma. I’m sorry to say that we don’t know when or if she will wake up.”
“Is there anything we can do?”
“Stay with her. Who knows she might be able to hear.”
Over the next few weeks people from Team Flash came and went. Barry regained his speed and Zoom was defeated. But you were still in a coma.
The team was in the cortex after Barry caught a thief, half expecting for Barry to have to run out again to save the day. That’s when they got the call.
“Hello? Yes this is Dr. Snow. What? She’s- what? Okay, thank you.”
“What was that?” Iris asked.
“(Y/N) is awake.”
The team never moved so fast. Barry actually waited for everyone else before getting to the hospital.
They all walked in and saw a nurse rewrapping your arm.
“Thank you,” you whispered to the nurse before she left you alone with your friends.
“(Y/N/N),” Cisco whispered crossing the distance to your bedside. He grabbed your hand and lightly hugged you, careful not to hurt you.
Everyone came to you and gave you hugs, but Barry was lost in his own world.
“Bar? You okay?” You ask drawing him out of his thoughts.
“Yeah. Just thinking. How are you feeling?” he answered shortly.
“I think I’m okay.”
But you weren’t okay. It would take four months for the brain damage to kill you.
No one expected it. The doctors all said you were fine.
Everyone was at Iris and Barry’s new apartment when you began getting dizzy.
“I think I’m gonna call it a night guys. I’m not feeling to well,” you bid your goodbye and hugged Barry telling him you’ll see him the next day at Jitters for your weekly coffee date.
You made it home, and in the door, but one step up the stairs and you fainted.
The cause of death was said to be blood clots in the brain that passed by undetected. Barry was mad that the doctors didn’t see it. Barry was mad that he didn’t see the symptoms. Barry was mad that it wasn’t him who got hit that day.
Most of all Barry was sad. Sad because he lost his closest friend to something he could have prevented. And he blamed himself.
Okay, (spoilers for wonder woman alert)
This movie was great. But one thing that stood out to me was David Thewlis, our very own Remus Lupin, played Ares, bad guy extraordinare. And he was amazing. But, I couldn’t stop thinking of Sirius and James seeing this somehow.
Sirius being all: Moony! Love of my life, my moon, stop trying to turn Wonder Woman evil! Come on, this isn’t you! Your smarter than this! Also, stop flirting with her! It’s creepy, and making me jealous.
James: Remus Werewolf Lupin! Really? Do not use your magic on poor Wonder Woman! This is so not you! Really? Oh, and she beat your arse, mate.
So lately my son has been obsessed with Rise of The Guardians…which is okay on my end. Its a great movie…but right now my current obsession is Voltron….so my brain keeps supplying me with a cross over/AU….where Lance is Jack frost. But he’s only called Jack Frost because no one knows his name and some old take had given it to him. Santa would be a gender swap and be Allura so something along the lines that the tales were wrong a out her too. Tooth- Pidge. Sandman- Hunk. And the Easter Bunny would be Shiro. With the bantering between bunny and Jack I know it would be a better fit for Keith…but…stay with me here.
Jamie…the little boy who first believes in Jack…that would be Keith. And there would be some angst because ask Keith grows older he goes through losing his family and stops having hopes and dreams eventually playing Lance off as his imagination when he was a kid. So Lance spends years trying to reach back out to Keith. To let him know he’s not alone. When the toll of losing Keith gets to Lance the other guardians decide to step in and help.
After seeing Spider-Man Homecoming with the family upon the late night premiere, I honestly just have two things to say in regards to the newest film…
One being that Homecoming is genuinely an incredibly entertaining and well written little movie. It knows when to be funny, it knows when to be emotional, and most importantly it knows when to be tense.
You all know what scene I mean.
Secondly, and probably the most important thing…I just want to thank not only God, but also Jesus, for allowing the MCU to pull their heads out of their asses and have Tony Stark actually be happy in a movie for once.
To clearly care – as well as worry – about someone that he obviously sees as a son, and to have them care for him in return as a rather needed father figure, and to finally, finally, finally, begin healing and moving on with better people at his side after the constant barrage of absolute bullshit that took place in Ultron and Civil War.
So, thank you Spider-Man: Homecoming for not only being an enjoyable little romp of laidback comic book fun, as well as being the Spider-Man film that we’ve totally been longing for quite a while, but also for finally cutting Tony Stark an actual damn break and letting him love someone and having them love him in return without the fear of betrayal or bias.
You didn’t do him dirty, Marvel, and I am so proud of you for that.
You’re pregnant and you’re scared, just like anyone is when they first find out that they’re pregnant. Once you find out, all you have to do is figure out a way to tell your boyfriend Kai about the pregnancy and that scares you too because you have no idea how he’s going to react.

Using the prompt: 21) “I’m pregnant.” (from my Prompt List)
so I watched Annabelle for the first time yesterday and I went in all excited cause it was hyped up to be great and I love the Conjuring movies but holy shit: • Okay so right off the bat, they open and close the movie with scenes about the Actual Annabelle Case, but then create a fictional plot around the doll??? What??? Why??? • “Their daughter ran away two years ago so we aren’t allowed to talk about my pregnancy” • As someone who used to have an impressive collection of porcelain dolls…the are usually not that creepy holy shit. I’ve only seen one creepy porcelain doll in my life, and it’s in my kitchen as we speak. Still not as overly-dramatic as they made the Annabelle doll. In the actual, real life case, the doll was a Raggedy Anne, and frankly? That would have been creepier to use? Something so iconically innocent? This was just trying too hard. • Satanists breaking into the house, that’s a very common and relatable problem • The dramatic drop of blood from the girl’s neck onto the doll’s face, the Satanic symbol smeared in blood… 5 Edgy 9 Me • Okay you wanna know what the God damn scariest part of this movie was???? When the doctor firmly puts her on bed rest, and then she just continues to walk around and work and do her job normally???? Are you lost on the concept of bed rest???? She’s out here hearing noises and shit and I’m just screaming at my tv “WHY WONT YOU TAKE CARE OF YOUR BABY???” bitch literally got stabbed in the stomach and thinks she can walk around like nothing’s wrong BYE • I was ranting about that literally all night • She tells her husband she wants to get rid of the doll, which is understandable, but then he just??? Throws it in the garbage???? Like 1) We know they’re having money troubles and 2) We know the doll was really expensive. Pawn it, you dumbass. You don’t have to tell the buyers a cult member held it in their arms after she slit her throat! That’s not information that needs to come up! This couple is just flat out exasperating. • All the zoom-in shots of her fingers at the sewing machine were 100% more nerve racking than anything else that happened in this damn film • How the fuck did she not smell that fire • h o w • So this chick gets stabbed in her uterus and then falls on her stomach while inhaling smoke and you want me to believe this baby came out 100% fine?? K. • Why was their apartment literally bigger than their house had been • You know when I met John Zaffis and he was complaining that when every true ghost case his name is remotely attached to gets turned into a movie they never make a fictionalized version of him in the film but instead add in a priest that just looks like him, I thought it had to be an exaggeration…but they…they really did just create a priest and cast a guy that looks like him…why is this a curse he must bear…I don’t understand…Just put the man in your movies… • Literally what the hell was up with the kids on the steps did we ever get a full explanation for that???? • Bookshop lady sees random woman outside, decides to run out and give her a free book for literally no God damn reason. more at six. • Okay so the doll somehow followed them to the apartment and that wasn’t a paranormal giveaway??? John, Mia, come on. • And okay I can respect her wanting to keep it and all but why would she put it in her fucking baby’s room are you kidding me. What sense does that make. • John was a Good Husband and I respect him but that boy was an idiot; Mia was a complete dumbass most of the film. So it was very hard for me to feel sympathetic towards them for most of the events??? idk • The ghost apparently couldn’t decide whether or not it wanted to be seen as 7-year old Annabelle, Adult Annabelle, or an Actual Demon…calm down? I get spirits like being dramatic but we need some consistency I’m sorry • Literally what the fuck was going on in that basement scene. Like…what • “You won’t mind if I just keep this one for myself then…” Um no Mia he should mind??? That’s a Literal Crime Scene Photo??? It’s evidence for the case??? You can’t just take it jfc • And the thing is??? She took that picture because she wanted to research the Satanic Symbol, but like??? We never actually did find out what that symbol stood for???? • Local Woman Is Shown To Be Suicidal In The Past So We Won’t Feel As Bad When She Sacrifices Herself Later. More at six. • This doll just kept…deteriorating throughout the entire movie??? Like she collects porcelain dolls you’d think she be able to do something about that • Local Woman Figures Out Doll Is Possessed, Still Keeps It Right Over Her Baby’s Crib For A Bit. more at six. • When the John Zaffis Priest™ offered to take the doll I was just like…My dude. My dude. No. • Like FIRST OFF if anything fucking bless the doll and the apartment before you leave??? Come on??? You know this is a serious enough situation that you wanna call the Warren’s in but you’re not gonna actively do anything about it until morning? Bye. • “MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOUL” calm down, Satan. • John Zaffis Priest™ : *literally sees the ghost/demon of a girl who used to belong to his church standing a few feet behind him* • John Zaffis Priest™ : *decides that’s not his damn business and tries to enter the church and ignore it* • I was so pleasantly surprised he survived that honestly • Remember kids: If demons need your consent to steal your souls, than you need consent to have sex. Don’t be worse than demons. • That whole scene where the baby was screaming but you can’t find her??? We get it, you’ve seen Poltergeist. • Ooooh girl when she was bashing Annabelle’s head into the crib and then threw her on the ground- I was waiting for a shot where we find out that had actually been her baby. They fucking let me down there. That would off been a great scene (fucked up, but it is a horror movie after all) • Dramatic Scenes Of The Husband Running Home. Will He Get There In Time? More at six. • Why do they have to hold the doll as they kill themselves • I like how both women were immediately ready to die for the baby but the man was just like “why don’t we all take a breather and discuss this further over coffee” while a demon is wrecking havoc in the room around him • Local Woman Believes Her Greater Purpose In Life Is To Kill Herself So A Baby Will Live, more at RIGHT NOW BECAUSE IM PISSED ABOUT THAT FUCKING SCENE • Like if you wanna ignore everything but the base of it- Evelyn was only suicidal in the first place because she wanted to see her daughter again. Something tells me if your soul is sacrificed to Satan you WONT BE SEEING YOUR FUCKING DAUGHTER AGAIN • THE DEMONS JUST HAVE HER FOREVER NOW. WHAT THE FUCK • W H Y • WHO THOUGHT THAT WAS A GOOD ENDING • HOW MANY PEOPLE SAW THIS MOVIE AND HAD NO PROBLEM WITH THAT BEFORE IT WAS RELEASED • U G H • And then the doll just ~mysteriously moves away from the crime scene alone~ and ends up in a fucking antique shop okay • Why did it take like a full year for John Zaffis Priest™ to get that picture of Mia and the baby developed for them • About 20 minutes after suffering through this film I found myself in a parking lot of a TGI Friday’s and got jump-scared by an old man in a car staring at me and I experienced more true terror in that one moment than I did during the entirety of this shit film • Overall: Waste of time and I feel lied to 3/10 do not recommend unless you’re really easy to scare
