this was made when everything was announced and stuff

I don't want to reblog that long ass BoL vs Coco post

But the amount of misinformation on it is astounding. When Gutierrez opted his movie at Pixar, he was turned down because Pixar was already optioning Coco, they noted similar themes, and while in the past they’ve completely cancelled movies to allow similar sounding projects from other studios a chance to flourish (the whole Newt/Rio thing), I’m guessing they didn’t cancel Coco here because at this point neither project had been totally green lit. Part of the reason BoL eventually DID get greenlit was because Fox saw the whole trademark debacle go down, prior to Coco being formally announced (remember the first rumblings of the project started spreading when Toy Story 3 hit theaters) and Fox saw it as an opportunity to get a movie made that could beat Coco to the box office and establish mindshare specifically so that when Coco did finally get announced this exact dumb comparison stuff would happen. You guys are doing exactly what Fox hoped would happen. And speaking of the trademark debacle…

Disney/Pixar did not try to trademark Dia De Los Muertos as a way to own the holiday and merchandising and distribution rights etc. It was to register the then working title of Coco, and start the ball rolling on all the work and contracts necessary to get everything from trailers to posters to yes merchandise made. The backlash to the whole misunderstanding delayed the project and made them have to wait until it’s final title was nailed down to officially announce anything. Keep in mind that other holidays and yes even Dia De Los Muertos have already/since been trademarked for the purposes of film and short projects, just as Disney was attempting to do 5 years ago. It doesn’t mean any of the distributors of those films can sue someone for celebrating or that they can commodify the holiday in any way.

Also, in what way is Coco existing a bad thing? The Book of Life is great, I like it, but it’s not a transcendental film that means there’s no room for similar concepts to be explored ever again. It was forced to include a marketable but relatively inauthentic cast, referenced to contemporary music and humor that could make for a sellable trailer. It’s frame narrative is heavy handed and clunky. Visually it’s absolutely ace though, and frankly, I think Coco looks beautiful too from what little we’ve been given. The casting for Coco is promising, the crew is promising, the intent and the amount of research has been promising. Disney/Pixar also has the capital and the reach to make this a film that will be seen by a far wider audience than The Book of Life was able to, and that’s important! We should be encouraging this! Assuming the movie doesn’t turn out to be a terrible and offensive garbage heap, which even given Pixar’s worst output, seems highly unlikely, how is it a bad thing for this movie to be made? Oh, I guess because in 120 seconds of broad strokes the teaser seemed too similar to The Book of Life? Why not give this movie a chance to come out, see it, and THEN make your comparisons? I know a lot of people feel that whatever came first cannot be topped and should remain unchallenged, but as a Mexican, I whole heartedly welcome attempts to introduce audiences to stories and themes I grew up with. A movie like this taking off opens the door for more, and more stories about my family’s culture, about different aspects of that culture, beyond DotD. DotD is mainly the go to because the core of the celebration is universal and we encourage EVERYONE to participate. It’s an aspect of our culture that we openly share already, but here’s another chance for it to be presented with a voice that can reach further. I’m stoked, to be completely honest.

Plus, while a lot of people on here are trying to be scorned on behalf of Gutierrez, and pit these two films against each other instead of letting them complement each other, Gutierrez was tweeting how excited he is to see Coco.

Christmas Special with Hayes Grier (Part 1)

So the Christmas special’s first part is finally here! Part 2 is coming tomorrow, don’t worry.
I wish all of you a very merry Christmas, spend time with your loved ones and I hope you all get a lot of presents! Happy holidays!

MASTERLIST

I have always wondered if things happen for a reason in life, or it’s just a series of random happenings making no sense. For a long time I didn’t believe in such things as fate, but it was until one person came into my life. And his name was Hayes Grier.

When it came to Hayes, I had to admit that it couldn’t be just coincidences. There must had been a reason that he was a huge part of my life since I was thirteen even though it wasn’t always easy with him. I had to believe that there was a reason why only the two of us ended up on an only adults Christmas party at our dads’ workplace so we spent the whole evening together sitting on a desk and talking about random stuff and there must had been a reason for him becoming my first ever boyfriend.

But on the other hand there were horrible reasons why all good had to come to an end. There were this stupid app called Vine that took my boyfriend away from me and I had to say goodbye to my happiness. Don’t ask what went wrong, because I don’t even know. It happened too fast and almost made me go crazy that I lost one of the most important people in my life. No amount of tears and chocolate could make it better. All I had was time and the hope that one day I would be able to stop myself from thrilling when I hear his name. Almost one year was enough to reach this stage but just when I thought I could close this chapter in my life, we ended up stuck in a hotel room, in the middle of nowhere, at Christmas night, with a huge storm outside that didn’t let us go our separate ways. We were forced to be in the same room and you can tell that it wasn’t quite of a dream. But let’s just start at the part that do not contain Hayes yet, and is about me wanting to prove my parents that at the age of sixteen I’m mature enough to travel through Canada on my own.

This stupid argument had been going on for days and I was getting tired of being treated like a child. For God’s sake, sixteen is not like eight! I couldn’t believe they had that little trust in me!

“But mom!” I whined following her into the kitchen.

“No! Y/N, I don’t want to hear about it!” she shot back stubbornly. I rolled my eyes at her ignorance. Why did she have to be this wayward?

“Mom, you can’t be serious, this is like the biggest deal of the year, the dance team can’t do the routine without me!” I protested. This competition was the most important one in the history of our school’s dance team. We worked so hard to get there and it was held in Canada, but I was the only one who didn’t get their parent’s approval and I only had two more days to convince them.

“And your family wants you to be with them at Christmas!” my mom said for like the fifteenth time. She didn’t want to let me god, because the competition was on the 23rd of December, but my family always spent the holidays in New York at my aunt’s huge place. We wouldn’t had had enough time for mom and dad to go to Canada, pick me up and then go back to New York. The only solution was for me catching the next flight after the competition and follow the rest of my family to New York so I could be there in time. But my mom didn’t even want to hear about me flying alone through the continent.

“I already told you, that we can make it work! You just have to say yes to my plan, I already found the best flight for me, I can do this, I swear.” I wanted to convince her so badly.

“Do you think I’m crazy? I won’t let my child travel across the world alone!”

“Mom, that’s just Canada, the country next to the States,” I growled. She could be so dramatic, I swear sometimes I felt like she was from a Latin-American soap opera.

I stared at her in disbelief, I needed to find a way to make her change her mind. And I only had one more card I was ready to play.

I took a deep breath and threw myself to one of the stools in the most dramatic way I could possibly hit.

“I can’t believe, that I have to let my team mates down. We worked so hard for years, and now it’s all nothing,” I sadly commented like she wasn’t even there, like I was just thinking about my miserable life. “All those competitions, those late night practices, those times when I came home crying because I couldn’t do the new moves, but you told me that with time I would nail it…”

I know, I’m such a bad person to try to make her mind change with some emotional memories. But I could hear her painfully sigh behind me, so I just kept doing what I was doing.

“I hope they won’t hate me because it affects the whole team…”

“Y/N, enough, go to your room. Your dad is going to be home in any minute,” she told me, and as angry as it sounded, it was a sign of my success. She sent me to my room so she could talk to my dad alone. Give me an Oscar or something, because I’m a fucking genius.

I glued my ears to the door of my room so I could hear their conversation, but I only could catch some words, they were too discreet.

I threw myself to my bed waiting for their decision. It seemed like forever until I could hear their footsteps on the stairs. I quickly shot up and waited for them to enter my room. As their opened the door and stood in the doorway, I could feel that I won.

“So your mother and I discussed this whole thing,” my dad started with a sigh. “Are you really that essential for the team?” he asked with a painful look on his face.

“Yes!” I said immediately. “They need me for the lifting and they would have to rearrange the formations and…”

“Okay,” my mom cut me off rolling her eyes. “You can go, but we have some conditions!”

I knew I could make them change their minds! I finally got what I wanted, but I also had to hear them out about every danger, they told me the conditions, one of them were to call them every hour, before my plane gets off and after I land, but who cared? I was allowed to go!

I was so overwhelmed by the news that it didn’t occurred to me that something could go wrong in no time.

The next two days went by with the planning of my trips. My parents was all about how I would get to New York, but I was all about the competition of the year. Then finally the day had come.

“You sure you have everything?” my mom asked and I could see how terrified she was about this whole thing. We were at the parking lot of my school, everyone was saying goodbye to their parents, but I was the only one whose way back wasn’t with the rest of the team. My parents talked to our coach to make sure everything will be okay.

“Yes mother, I’m good,” I granted.

“Girls! Five minutes!” Coach shouted warning all of us.

“See you guys in New York,” I smiled at mom and dad and then we hugged. I waved at them as I got on the bus and five minutes later I was gone.

I would rather not bore you with the details of the competition, enough is said with the statement that we won. What can I say? We were pros.

“Y/N! The car is here for you!” Coach shouted as we were getting ready to leave. My mom arranged a car for me that brought me to the airport. I said goodbye to my team mates, got in the car and headed to the airport. I checked everything before going to the terminal I took care of my bag and then headed to check in. In the meanwhile I called my mom to tell her everything was fine.

“Okay mom, see you soon!” I said as I was next in line and threw my phone to the tray along with all of my stuff.

When I was checked I made my way towards the coffee shop to get some caffeine. My bad that the girls and I stayed up late night. I had almost an hour until boarding, so I set my laptop up and occupied myself right until… that nice female voice made an announcement that my flight was going to be late due to some technical problem.

“What?” I snapped shutting my laptop down. I quickly gathered my stuff and made my way towards the information booth. A bunch of people were already there, probably they were all on my flight, everyone was complaining and asking when would the plane leave, but the poor woman there could not say anything.

“Wonderful,” I growled leaving the unsatisfied crowd behind. I took a spot next to the windows and for a while I was just staring at the planes outside. But soon enough my sleepiness took over me and I fell asleep.

I woke up to that female voice again saying that all passengers of the New York flight must go to the information booth. That was when I realized that it was snowing outside. And by snowing I mean it was a damn storm! How long had I been sleeping? When I fell asleep there were no signs of any storms.

I quickly made my way to the booth and waited for what was about to happen. The information woman stood up to her chair so everyone could see her and man, I could already see it on her face that something was deeply wrong.

“I’m really sad and sorry to say that, but the New York flight was fully cancelled due to the weather circumstances. The next flight is tomorrow at six pm if the storm calms down by that time. Until then we are sorry to say, but no flights are going to New York.

The crowd erupted at the same time in discontent along with me. I made a promise to be at home by Christmas, but that flight was too late, I would totally miss the traditional dinner and my mom would totally flip that it was a mistake to let me go to the competition. I had to find a way to get home in time. I know I should have called my parents right away, but I wanted to solve this on my own. So I did my best and dig into the internet to find the best solution.

I made a schedule, I had to catch the next train, it said that it would take me to New York in about 15 hours. It was nine in the morning, I still had time.

I quickly got my bag and left the airport as fast as I could. I paid almost a fortune to the taxi driver to take me to the station, but I didn’t care. On the ride I bought my ticket online and when the taxi parked at the station, I only had five more minutes. I was afraid I wouldn’t get there in time, but I did. I caught the train just in time. My seat was next to an old man who was talking nonstop about his grandchildren, but honestly, I didn’t care. Because I was on my way to New York and I believed that I would get there in time. But that was officially my unluckiest day of my life.

About nine hours and many-many grandchildren stories later the train stopped somewhere. I looked out the window, but it was definitely not New York yet.

“What’s going on?” I asked in the middle of a panic attack.

“Calm down, young lady, it must nothing serious,” Winston, the old man told me and I believed him… for like, five minutes.

Because that was when the ticket inspector announced that something was wrong with the train and we were stuck. I was ready to scream until I pass out. By that time my mom already called me four times and I did not answer her, I just sent her a text that I’m on my way. There was no mention of cancelled flight or broke down train. I couldn’t believe that this was happening to me.

An hour later we were still at the same exact spot and it was more than sure that we would be there for a long time, so the travelling company that owned the train made up a plan. We were really close to Scranton, so they reserved every possible free rooms in every kind of motels and hotels so the passengers could spend the night there. Surely, we could stay on the train, but since it was broke down, the temperature wasn’t optimal. Bunches of taxies got there and drove everyone to an accommodation. It was still snowing and I’m sure that the situation was the same at the airport, so at least I didn’t regret leaving.

The taxi got me to a nice little motel and it seemed like I was the only one who was brought there. I thanked to the chauffeur and walked inside before I could freeze into my boots. The whole motel was more like a big cabin in the woods, I really liked the vibes and thought it wouldn’t be that bad at least. I wasn’t that far from New York, there was still chance for me to get to my aunt’s place in time.

“Hello, I’m from the broke down train, they told me you have a free room here,” I said getting to the lobby where a nice old woman was standing behind the desk.

“Oh, yes! Come on honey, I’ll show you your room.” She nodded to me to follow her up the stairs. I felt like I was deep in the woods and spending my winter holiday with skiing and snowboarding. I wish I was though.

She ushered me to the room at the end of the hallway, opened the door for me and let me in telling me that if I need anything she would be there downstairs. I thanked her for her kindness and took over the room.

With a huge sigh I threw my bags to the floor and I didn’t want anything else than just take a warm bath and sleep so I can figure out what to do the next day. But as I walked further into the room my eyes stopped at a pair of boots on the floor and a hoodie was thrown to the bed.

“Hello?” I asked turning around looking for anyone that could be the owner of the booths and the hoodie. Right at that moment I heard the toilet flushing and when I turned towards the bathroom the mysterious person came out and he wasn’t that mysterious at all. It was Hayes, my ex-boyfriend.

The Vacation (Bucky x Reader)

Word Count: 3,582

Fluff/slight smut. I played with point of view a little bit here for the first time so any feed back would be appreciated! The idea was woven entirely around prompt 22 from the fluff/angst category of  this list (I’ll take more requests off of it if you want, there’s also a request for #15 from the sensual/flirty list that I may connect this with. Enjoy & feel free to request!! 

Bucky?”

When she says my name it makes me feel alive, as if I’m really me. She’s beautiful, intelligent and so funny. I don’t think she knows how I feel about her; I’d like to keep it that way to be honest. What would an angel like her want with a screwed up guy like me?

           “Bucky?! You’re coming right? Wheels up in 20!” She tugs my good arm, smiling brightly, coaxing me to get a move on. Tony’s got us all set up to go on this island vacation. If I’m honest I can say I’m not really excited, but the way her face lit up when Tony made the announcement made me crave ocean views and sand; if only to see her happy like that for 2 weeks straight.

           “Alright (y/n), I’m coming! Do you have everything you need?” I ask as I hop off the couch. I grab all of her bags even though I know she’s strong enough to carry them. She’s cute when she scoffs at me.

               “Seriously? You know you don’t have to grab all my stuff! At least let me grab my duffle bag!” she scolds as she grabs the duffle bag, rolling her eyes as she shimmies away in her sundress. She once told me that she liked dresses so much because they were comfy and she didn’t need to wear pants, which are her least favorite clothing item. I laughed, thinking she’s gorgeous no matter what she wears.

           “Hall ass! It’s time for VACATION!!!!!!” she squeals, entering the private plane. I follow after, stowing away all of hers and my luggage.

           Bucky’s always looking at me like I’ve said the funniest thing, sometimes I’m not sure if he’s laughing at me or with me. I like to assume it’s with me if only to protect my ego. He keeps his distance from most people who aren’t blonde and star spangled but I’ve gone out of my way to pull him outta his shell. I like to make him laugh, I don’t know why. I guess it’s because he’s got so much to frown about that when he does crack a smile it makes my heart do flips. But we’re just friends, he probably thinks I’m a huge dork in reality. I’m really excited for this trip, we all need the break and I’m sure as hell happy to be relaxing for the next two weeks.

           The entire team loads onto the jet, all settled in for the 6 hour flight to their island destination. Bucky sits next to (y/n) who falls asleep almost as soon as the plane takes off. He studies her delicate features, the way her eyelashes curl as she rests her head on his shoulder. His heart melts, wishing he could just scoop her into his arms. Her hair is up in a messy bun, it smells like fresh fruit and flowers and makes Bucky feel like home, a place he hasn’t been in a century but somehow with her on his shoulder he’s transported to the feeling of security and peace. He too begins to nod off, resting his head on hers. They spend the whole flight like that, much to Steve’s amusement. He’s been trying to play match maker for the pair for awhile, he sees what the two of them can’t which is that they’re both desperately in love.

The plane lands with little turbulence; Bucky stirs first, carding his hand through his dark hair as she lazily lifts her head.

           “Morning sleeping beauty. We’re here!” Bucky smiles.

           “I can’t wait to be on the beach with a mimosa!!!!! Get outta the way Weiner Soldier!”

She laughs as she stretches. Bucky rolls his eyes with a smile before gathering their bags. She’s the only person he lets joke about the winter soldier. She protests once again, insisting on grabbing a couple bags before they make their way to the huge beach side property that Tony owns. Upon entering the grand palace that is Casa Stark the team begins discussing the rooming situation. Steve and Bucky room together in one upstairs bedroom, Tony and Pepper get the master suite, Bruce and Thor agree to room together in the other upstairs room, Sam and Clint take the down stairs bedroom, Pietro and Wanda always stay together (Pietro insisting on taking the room closest to the kitchen) leaving (y/n) and Natasha to share the guest bedroom located right off the pool area.

The two girls walk to their room, Bucky in toe with all of (Y/n)’s stuff.

           “Thanks Buck! Now scoot your boot so I can get into my bikini!” she smiled, bumping him with her hip as he set the bags down on the bed. Tony shouts something from a distance, Bucky hears and nods.

“Tony wants to know if you guys want hotdogs or hamburgers, he’s firing up the grill.” Bucky says, tucking his hair behind his ear.

(Y/n) and Natasha contemplate for a moment before deciding both would be good. Everyone settles in, showers and changes into their beach attire. (Y/n) stands in front of her bed looking at all of her bikini tops and bottoms, trying to decide which one she should wear with the sheer white kimono she packed.

“I’d go with the red one if you’re trying to impress him.” Natasha commented as she slipped on a pair of sandals. She was wearing a black one piece with cut outs along the sides with a cute beach hat and cat eye sunnies.

“And who am I supposed to be impressing?” she scrunched her face up in confusion as she picked up the red bikini top.

“Your ‘weiner soldier’.” She chuckled.

“Shut up! There’s nothing going on there, he probably thinks I’m a huge dork. Also don’t call him that, I don’t think he’d be ok with it.” She replied swiftly, cheeks going a bit red at the notion. But still she decided on the red bikini top paired with black bottoms and the white tasseled kimono. She let her hair fall naturally, not bothering with the extra time it’d take to blowdry.  Upon entering the back yard Bucky nearly choked on his drink at the site of her.

“What’s the matter Bucky? Cat got your tongue?” Steve quipped. Bucky swallowed hard, shaking his head a she and Natasha made their way to the table.

“Did Tony make iron-punch?! Poor me up a cup!!” she exclaimed as she and Natasha joined them at the bar.

“I don’t know if that’s such a good idea (y/n).” Tony said as he took the ladle out of the punch bowl, filling his own cup.

“Remember what happened last time?” Bucky cautioned. She immediately flashed back to a memory of being in nothing but her underwear shouting ‘I’M QUEEN OF THE WORLD!’ from the roof top of Stark tower.

“We don’t talk about that! Besides everyone’s been crazy drunk in this group before!” she blushed furiously as she filled her cup, that night Bucky had been nice enough to throw his shirt on her and get her to bed, although she protested, that’s when she gave him the nick name “the wiener soldier”.

“Alright ‘queen of the world’!” Bucky joked as he sipped his beer.

As the four of them continued with their talk Clint and Sam organized the beer pong table with the idea of a friendly tournament.

“Ok! After dinner we all split off into teams and play a little beer pong. Losers have to clean up after the winners for a month when we get back home.” Sam smiled as he absent mindedly through the ping pong ball into a cup.

Natasha and (y/n) immediately decided to team up.

“We totally got this! Ex-assassin’s about to kill the beer pong championship!” Natasha declared as she and (y/n) did their special handshake.

“Pretty sure Bucky and I got this one covered.” Steve chided.

“Oh really? How bout you put your money where your mouth is!” Natasha quirked her lips into a devilish grin as she sipped her margarita.

“What’s your wager??” Steve sipped his beer coolly, turning his baseball cap backwards.

“If we beat you, you guys have to run around the pool naked 3 times then go for a swim.” She threw down the gauntlet, looking smug as Steve and Bucky shifted uneasily in their seats.

“Ok, and if we win?” Steve breathed.

“(Y/n) and I will run around the whole house naked.” Natasha finished.

“What?!” (y/n) squeaked, eyes wide and cheeks red.

“Deal.”

“Deal.”

They had already shook on it before she could protest further. (y/n) walked away from the table, drink in hand as the reality of the situation washed over her.

Leave it to Nat to get me in a side bet in which I could end up having to run around the house naked. Although I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t excited about the possibility of winning and seeing Bucky and Steve run around the pool naked.

She decided to lay on the huge hammock Tony had installed in the corner of the backyard it was big enough to comfortably seat two so she sprawled out, feeling like a baby in a rocking cradle. She was daydreaming about naked night swimming with Bucky when she heard the shuffle of sandals on the grass.

“Hey…” Bucky began as he walked toward her.

“What’s up?” she smiled, swaying gently with the breeze.

“If you don’t wanna do the whole bet thing I’ll tell Steve it’s a dumb idea and we won’t do it. I don’t want you to feel forced into doing something you don’t wanna do.” He shrugged. For a moment she thought it was a sweet gesture, until a second thought crossed her mind.

“Wait, are you assuming that Nat and I would lose?!” she scowled as she tipped her head back, finishing her drink.

“No, not exactly… I’m just sayi-“ Bucky was cut off as she stood  up from the hammock, getting face to chest with him.

“Uh huh, later on tonight you’ll just be taking a naked swim with Steve, don’t forget to stretch before you run those laps!” she poked his muscly chest, leaving Bucky to watch helplessly as she sauntered away, he’d never seen her look so determined and sexy.

After dinner everyone paired off into five teams of two. First, Thor and
Bruce went up against Tony and Pepper. Everyone was shocked to find out that Pepper was crazy good at beer pong, almost winning the match single handedly until Thor’s ale started kicking in leaving Tony almost completely incapacitated.

“Ah-lob you Pep, pep pep! Pepperrrrrrrrrrrrrony! That’ Pepper and Tony, perfect like pizza.” He babbled as she steered him to the house.

Next the twins faced Sam and Clint who won on the account of Pietro attempting to cheat by moving the cups before he thought anyone would notice.

Finally it came to (y/n) and Nat versus Bucky and Steve. The cups were aligned and filled with beer. The girls each took a shot of whisky, claiming it would help them play better.

“Ladies first.” Steve smirked, presenting the girls with 2 glow in the dark pink ping pong balls.

“Don’t over shoot it, doll.” Bucky chastised as (y/n) lined up her shot, the ball swirled around the rim before falling straight in. She grinned cockily looking Bucky in the eye as Nat high fived her. Natasha sank her shot right after.

“Drink up, sweetheart.” (y/n) winked, feeling bold and hot from the whisky on her tongue. Bucky drank the beer up in long drawls before setting the cup aside, biting at the corner of his lip as he gazed at her.

“Beginner’s luck.” Steve scoffed as he tossed the balls back to Natasha. (Y/n) lined up her second shot but was distracted when Bucky lifted his tank top to seemingly wipe the sweat from his forehead.

“Told ya!” he smiled.

“Shut up! I got distracted.” She shrugged, nodding to Nat to take her shot. The ball careened off of one cup and thankfully into another, Steve chugged the beer and quickly took the next shot, perfectly landing it into the cup at the apex of the pyramid. Natasha chugged the beer, burping loudly as she wiped the foam from her mouth.

“You’re up Barnes. Don’t use your arm to cheat!” she exclaimed. Bucky rolled his eyes, using his natural arm to aim and shoot the ball, purposely using (y/n)’s chest as a backboard, which ended up failing.

“Really Buck?! The cups are down here not up here! You must really be lookin to go for a swim tonight.” (y/n) smiled, placing her hand on her hip. The game continued neck and neck until each team had but one cup remaining.

“Both team members have to sink the ball into the cup in order to win. Good luck guys!” Clint reminded them of the rules before letting the game commence. (Y/n) managed to sink her ball in first (with one eye closed.) followed by a close attempt by Natasha who’s ball ran around the rim before falling to the side.

“Now will you be running around the inside of the house as well as the outside?” Steve smirked after his ball sank right into the cup with a splash. Natasha said something sarcastic back, (y/n) wasn’t paying attention to the game anymore. Throughout the entire match her and Bucky were making eyes at eachother, the drunker they got the more distracted they became.

“Just lose so I can see you naked!!!” (y/n) drunkley blurted with a giggle. Bucky laughed with a blush, taking his shot and missing the cup completely.

“C’mon Buck, don’t do this to me!” Steve bickered.

“Alright (y/n) you got this girl!” Natasha encouraged. She lined up the shot, took a deep breath and sunk it straight into the cup.

The backyard erupted with cheers, (Y/n) throwing her arms around Nat as they spun in celebration. Soon they began chanting at Steve and Bucky to strip, dejected and embarrassed the boys took off their shirts and flip flops.

“Do we have to do this? It’s kind of immature don’t ya think?” Steve tried to reason as he slowly began to pull down his swim trunks.

“There’s no backing out now shit talker!” Natasha rebuttled.

“Hey Buck, don’t forget to stretch.” (y/n) winked, trailing her fingers down his arm. He wasn’t sure if it was all the alcohol or the fact that she’d been eyeing him all night but Suddenly Bucky got all the courage in the world.

“Fuck it.” He said simply before pulling off his swim trunks and taking off around the pool, Steve following right behind him. They ran three fast laps before jumping into the pool naked as the day they were born, cat calls and laughter echoing throughout the beachside property. Once the boys were fully clothed again and things settled down a bit they realized there were still three teams in the running for the tournament. They decided to end the game with a three way game of flip cup. The First team to chug and flip both of their cups would be declared champions, the two remaining teams would have to fight to avoid cleaning up after the champs. Clint and Sam were the first to flip both cups; declaring themselves ‘Champion Bird Bro’s’. Thor and Bruce lost by a hair to Natasha and (y/n), Nat flipping her cup right before Bruce.

After the tournament most of the team headed inside, drunk and tired. Bucky caught (y/n) nursing one last beer as she laid on the hammock once more.

“How was that naked swim with Steve?” She smiled up at him.

“Not bad, besides being naked with Steve.” He chuckled.

“Who else would you’ve wanted?” she asked as she sipped.

“…you…” Bucky replied, licking his lips.

“Yeah..?” she sat up, tilting his chin down, his hair flopping forward as her lips ghosted past his cheek to whisper in his ear.

“Lets go for a dip.” She got up and ran past him, bikini top flying in the air as she made her way to the pool, hopping in with a loud splash.

“Seriously (y/n)?” he said nervously as he approached the pool.

“Seriously.” She confirmed, taking off her bottoms and throwing them at him.

A new wave of uncertainty washed over Bucky as he started to pull off his swim trunks, earlier it was a joke and he felt more buzzed but now it was almost too intimate. (Y/n)  was splashing around the pool, eagerly awaiting Bucky’s arrival.

“C’mon, I already saw it earlier there’s nothing to be ashamed of. Plus I’m already naked!” She reasoned as she floated to the edge of the pool.

“Since you’re twisting my arm…” he rolled his eyes, quickly dropping his trunks and jumping in.

“This is awesome right? Look at the stars, isn’t it beautiful?” She gazed up in wonderment at the clear starry night sky.  Bucky sighed as he pushed his wet hair out his face, she was beautiful, more beautiful than any sunset or night sky he’d ever seen.

“Yeah it is. Can I ask you somethin’?” he began, his heart thumping in his chest, suddenly he felt he had to know if she felt the way he did. She’d chosen to befriend him when everyone else thought he was still a threat, they’d grown to be so close and he just had to know.

“Go on…” she replied, raising an eyebrow as she gently kicked her feet under the water.

“What do you think of me?” he stated.

“What do you mean? Like as a person?” she let the question hang in the air before replying.

“I think you’re great, quiet, brave, humble, handsome, sweet…” she rattled off praises as she swam closer to him.

“What do you think of me?” she smiled, standing up leaving the security of the water to be fully bare to him from the chest up.

“I think you’ve got a good heart and a strong mind, you’re beautiful and any guy would be lucky.” He concluded, tilting her chin up to look into her eyes.

“Too bad I’m not looking for just any guy…” she replied, stepping closer until they were millimeters apart. Bucky didn’t let her get away this time, he brought their lips together in a soft, sweet kiss. His metal hand resting in the small of her back as the other brushed her cheek. Her arms draped around his neck, the kiss becoming more heated and desperate. She bit his lower lip, begging to deepen the kiss and he obliged, threading his fingers through her hair. She’d never been kissed so passionately in her life, it was as if he knew all of the ways to satisfy her. He kissed and nibbled at her collarbone causing her breath to hitch as she backed up against the edge of the pool. He kissed down her collar bone and across her chest, hoping it’d convey just how much he loved her. She tilted his head up to kiss him again, his lips were like fire and she needed to consume that spark once more. Wrapping her legs around him he hoisted her up so she was sitting on the edge of the pool.

           “Bucky” She moaned his name, slowing down the pace to a stop. He held her close, foreheads pressed together.

           “Are you uncomfortable? I’m sorry.”

           “It’s ok, I just don’t want this to have happened because we were drunk. I want it to be real.” She sighed, planting a gentle kiss on his shoulder.

           “Of course, tomorrow we’ll do something just me and you ok?” he smiled down at her. The pair dried off and headed inside, the house was quiet as they walked to their separate rooms. (y/n) felt her heart sinking, like she was missing him already. It was silly but she just wanted to be close to him.

           “Uh, Bucky?” she questioned, voice quivering with concern. She’d just denied him and now she wanted to see if he would cuddle with her.

“Yeah Doll?” He turned at the bottom of the stairs, towel wrapped around his waist.

“Do you think it’d be ok if I…I, nevermind…” she began to turn,

“What? Do you want to sleep upstairs with me?” he swallowed.

“…Yeah.” She blushed.

“C’mon, you can even wear one of my shirts.” He chuckled, arm outstretched as she made her way to him. They quietly made their way up the grand staircase and to Bucky’s room. Steve was sprawled out on his bed, snoring loudly with a bottle of beer in his hand.

“I wish I had my phone.” (y/n) whispered with an airy chuckle. Bucky took his phone off the counter and snapped a picture of Steve looking like a baby passed out with a bottle.

“I’ll send it to you.” He chuckled. They finished drying off, Bucky throwing on a pair of boxers and a t-shirt before handing (y/n) on of his shirts and a pair of his boxers.

“Guess I got to get into your pants anyway.” She winked, crawling into bed.

“You look damn good in em’ to doll.” He smirked, crawling in after her.

Just hold me, I can’t wait to sleep through this hangover.” She groaned, scooting into little spoon position. Bucky’s arm draped around her, enveloping her in his scent and warmth. She quickly settled in, kissing up his arm before she drifted off to sleep.

What is this SNK Crimson Bow and Arrow complete film? Hearing a lot of things going around like, the second season is coming out this date, or the live action is coming out this date, has made everything confusing. Could you please explain this to me? I also saw something about something airing in Japan. When all this stuff eventually comes out, how will it spread to other places besides Japan? Thanks~

Shingeki no Kyojin Live Action Film

The Shingeki no Kyojin Live Action Film is very much what it says on the tin. The movie is a live action version of the series with some new characters and changes to the script. This film, like the Shingeki no Kyojin Compilation Films, will span over two movies. The first movie was released  August 1st, 2015 in Japan. The second movie was released September 19th, 2015.



Shingeki no Kyojin Anime Season Two

At the end for the first Crimson Bow and Arrow theater showing, there was an announcement for the second season of the Shingeki no Kyojin anime. The season season of the anime will be out in 2016.

(Note on this ad that the June 27th date refers to the second compilation film Wings of Freedom, and not the second season of the anime. Again the second season of the anime will be out in 2016.)


As to whether or not these films are produced outside Japan depends on the interest of the fans and the profitability of these films in Japan. 

1. easier to tell who said what 

2. no more squished one-word-by-one-word strings when there are too many reblogs

3. I mean, basically everything that was listed in the original announcement post before people started messing with it; it made sense to me, anyway.

You said that you're used to the other bands you like working to keep you engaged - how so? Can you give examples? I'm trying to understand this point of view because this is the first band I've ever followed that gave me something nearly every single day - be it promo, award shows, merchandise releases, pap walks, club appearances, meeting fans, releasing little video snippets, tweets, etc. I just wonder how the other bands you like do more. Not attacking, genuinely curious! All the love!

I really don’t want to become that girl who keeps complaining but here I go.
