Swing sets and headbands

Lance is seven and he loves the park.

That’s something that is loud and clear as he struggles under his cousin’s hold, ignoring Allura’s exasperated sighs as she tells him to slow down but he can’t because he can see the swing set free and the red one is going to be his this time.

It doesn’t take long, though, for him to succeed, shouting in delight when Allura finally lets him go and he runs straight to the swing set, eyes looking around for a familiar black dot while his small satchel around his chest bounces against him at each step.

With no ‘enemy’ in sight, Lance whoops in victory as he basically launches himself forward and sits on the red swing set. Not two second later, there’s a small whiney voice behind him.

“Aw, man! So not fair, Lance!”

Lance grins, throwing his head back and meeting a pair of dark blue eyes staring down at him upside down with a pout.

“I won Red, Keith!” Lance cheers, eyes following his friend’s figure as Keith walks around the swing set and sits on the black one next to Lance, “I finally got it!”

“That’s not fair! Shiro took forever because he wouldn’t stop talking to himself in the mirror,” Keith rolls his eyes, flopping himself on the black swing set and pushing a little back so he could swing without effort, “I dunno why he was calling himself Allura, though? Your cousin wasn’t even there?”

Lance shrugs, mind vaguely reminding him of the time he caught Allura winking and finger gunning at the mirror earlier in the morning.

“They are weird,” Lance declares nonchalantly, “Who cares? I got Red, Keith! I told you I would get here first!”

Keith sticks out his tongue at the teasing but still grins. “Whatever! I can still win on the race!”

“Oh yeah¡?”

“Yeah!”

“You’re on!”

Suddenly, Lance’s jump off the swing set and starts running, laughter loud and free as Keith shouts out in surprise and quickly follows his lead.

They pass the monkey bars for the third time before Lance hears a different kind of shout. It makes him pause his own shouts, because he can no longer hear Keith’s complains or laughter behind him. He slows down, eyebrows furrowed together in confusion as he looks back and he gasps when he sees his friend laying on the floor face down on the ground.

He runs back, shouting Keith’s name in concern before he kneels down next to the fallen boy.

“What happened? Are you okay? Are you crying? It’s okay, Keith! Imma get Allura! And – And Shiro! Okay? It’s okay! Just don’t go into the light, Keith!”

Keith grunts, pushing himself back slowly before he sits on his butt and rubs his nose, eyes tearful and wide as his lips turn into a pout.

“’m okay,” he grumbles quietly, still rubbing his nose before wiping his tongue at the dirt it got into his mouth“I, uh, my hair got in my eyes and I didn’t see the hole.”

“Are you sure you are okay?” Lance asks concerned, lower lip caught between his lips as he hugs his small satchel closer to him.

Keith nods. “Yeah, I’m okay, it just hurts a little.”

Lance purses his lips before he gasps and then leans down. He drops a quick kiss on top of Keith’s nose, making a loud sloppy sound while it and grins victoriously when finished.

“Magic kiss! My family do that with me when I get hurt, did it work?” Lance asks, smiling hopefully when Keith hums and pokes his nose as if testing it.

Keith gasps, mouth turning into a small ‘o’. “It doesn’t hurt anymore!”

“Yey! Success!” Lance cheers, throwing his hands in the air. They laugh, shoving at each other’s shoulder playfully.

Lance stares a little then, watching as Keith’s bangs fall to his face as he shakes with giggles and cover his eyes. He purses his lips in deep thought; that won’t do.

Lance tilts his head to the side, eyes squinting as he taps his chin. “Okay but you can’t really see now, though.”

He holds up a finger before he looks down and opens his small satchel. He mumbles under his breath as he run his hands inside of it before he lets out a small ‘ah-HA’ and takes out a small purple headband.

“Here! It’s a diadema! Well, uh, not really? Kinda? It means it’s a headband just…not uh…whatever! Just, here, come here.”

Lance waves his hand, telling Keith to come closer. The boy furrows his eyebrows in confusion but he still shrugs and crawls forward, not caring as his knees gets dirtier, and he eyes the headband in Lance’s hands curiously.

“Okay, so, Angie taught me how to do this, we just uh..okay, hold on!”

“Who’s Angie?” Keith asks quietly, wincing when Lance tugs at his bangs a little too much, “Ow.”

“Sorry,” Lance apologies, smothering down the wounded part gently before continuing, “She’s my big sister! She lets me play with her hair a lot, which is super cool because she has really long hair and it’s really pretty. Allura is teaching me how to make braids, too! I can make you a braid later, if you want?”

Keith nods, a small blush covering his cheeks at the thought even though he’s not sure what a braid is. He watches quietly as Lance sticks out his tongue in concentration as he works, small fingers running through his thick black hair and smothering it down carefully.

It takes less than two minutes before Lance leans back and smiles big and bright at his creation.

“All done!”

Keith arches an eyebrow, eyes going up to his forehead as if he could see what’s on his head and the confusion on his face makes Lance to laugh.

“Now you can see!” Lance nods proudly, grabbing Keith by the cheeks and shaking him a little.

Keith smiles, but it’s smushed by Lance’s pushing his cheeks together, making him looks like a fish. “Thanks, Lance!”

“No worries! Now, come on! Let’s finish the race!”

“Imma win because I’m Naruto now!” Keith declares, puffing his chest proudly.

Lance whines, stomping his foot. “Nooo, not fair! I’m Naruto!”

“You don’t have a headband, Lance!”

“Then gimme back the headband!”

“No!”

“Keith!”

The race turns into a chasing, monkey bars being passed by another four times, but it’s okay, because it’s not long before laughter and squeals are back coming from both of them as they tackle each other and wrestle on the grass.

It takes Shiro two weeks straight for him to convince Keith to take off the headband because it needed to be washed.

anonymous asked:

Hi~ did you get my question about Jaime and Cersei? I suppose it was just me sharing my feelings rather than asking a question =w= As much as I love seeing all the Jaime/Brienne stuff it makes me sad as well to imagine Cersei when Jaime leaves her =( She'll have lost everyone who means anything to her and she never got to meet someone good for her like Jaime met Brianna. Seems like Jaime was given the chance of redemption but she wasn't, you know? What do you think?

Hi, sorry, I’m a bit overwhelmed with questions so PSA, if you sent me meta asks, it will probably take me a long, loong, LOOOOONG time to answer, sigh. Sorry for that, but real life’s a bitch. Anyway, I think this was your question:

I’ve been thinking, as great as it is that Jaime has someone like Brienne to help him on his path of Redemption and such, isn’t it sad that Cersei has no one like that? In the end we know she’s likely to loose everything including her life and if Jaime survives that he may get to move on with his life and be happy while it feels like Cersei never got that chance =( Wouldn’t it be nice to see her be able to bond with someone too?

wouldn’t it be nice?

I guess it would. But this is a precise choice GRRM made with the twins. If he wanted Cersei to bond with some *good* character who brings out her better qualities and offers her the chance to do something nice for once, he would have given her such a character. Actually, he HAD such a character in Sansa, and yet chose to have Cersei treat Sansa horribly, despite the latter reminding Cersei of her younger self in many ways (like Brienne does to Jaime).

ok consider this au: sirius is a wizard and he sees a rly cute boy working at a bookshop or whatever other cliche place and he’s like !!! so he comes up with the brilliant plan to turn into padfoot, walk around outside of the shop for a few days, and then go inside with a picture asking about his lost dog bc the cute boy would Have To talk to him

remus is like “yeah ive seen him but can i take a closer look at the picture” and sirius is goin along with anything at this point because cute! boy! is! talking! to! him! and remus just looks at the photo and then back up at sirius and is like “come in the back with me for a sec ill take my break” and obv this screams either axe murderer or steamy hookup and sirius has magic so he’s sure he can get away if it’s the former and if it’s the latter….. i mean he’s not saying no

so they go into the back room and remus locks the door and sirius is like…. well… it could still go either way at this point and remus turns around to him and just says “why the fuck have you been wandering around outside of my store as a fucking dog”

and sirius sputters because obviously?? that’s impossible?? and he tells remus as much and remus just raises his eyebrows like he’s waiting for an explanation and sirius doesn’t know what to do

he’s kind of forcing himself to laugh a little because yeah he likes a little rebellion here and there but being responsible for exposing wizardry to the muggle world is not something he wants so he says “and how exactly would i turn into a dog???” like its the most ridiculous thing in the world and is praying to merlin that he’s able to get himself out of this one

remus just shrugs and says “animagus” as if it’s the simplest thing in the world and then continues to say “probably illegally though seeing as you’re walking around as a dog on a street full of muggles” and sirius leans back and is just like “huh” bc he’s been Caught

after a moment he’s like “but what if i wasn’t and you just exposed magic to a poor muggle man who was searching for his beloved pet?”

remus shrugs again and says “then i’d’ve wiped your memory” and sirius is Gone for this man

but then they hear someone come in and remus has to get back to the register and sirius has to leave anyways because he was meeting james for lunch and didn’t expect his visit to the store to take this long. as he walks out remus calls after him “don’t be an idiot next time” and sirius is just like be still my beating heart

the next day he walks up to the door of the store, tail wagging. remus rolls his eyes but lets him in. and so it starts.

I know you haven't written this in a whike, but maybe a hospital!AU drabble? It's my favorite universe :)

you’re trying to remember how many mac n cheese sliders you had at dinner because you feel like you’re going to throw up and you know it’s not because of your excess of appetizers but that’s easier to process than, well.

yousef—your very cute, very smart date, who had taken you on the train from providence to new york city to see a live reading by david sedaris and hang out with a few of your friends at columbia—is entirely oblivious, and you’re not holding hands but if you were he would probably feel yours shaking. they’re a little numb, though, and you probably stop moving and breathing for a moment before he looks over at you, probably to share a really cool fact, and you like him, you really do, but then he stops.

‘hey,’ he says, and you meet his eyes and muster up what is apparently a terrible effort of a smile, because he frowns a little. ‘are you okay?’

‘yeah,’ you try to get out, and your voice catches a little, and you want to rub your eyes because this feels entirely surreal: there’s a girl, probably ten feet away from you, and it has to be lexa. you recognize the set of her shoulders and the way she holds her head—chin lifted, just slightly, to combat her pretty features and her soft voice, because she’s brilliant and wants to never be dismissed. her hair is different than your lexa, and the thought makes your heart drop a little: it’s shorter, falling just above her shoulders, wild and soft and you still want to run your hands through it.

help i can’t stop coming up with headcanons about the major shield agents’ reactions when may left field work

  • whenever they’re consulted about who would be the best agent for a certain mission there’s always one of them that says “melinda may” and hill eyerolls but she knows it’s true

Goodnight Kiss (post-finale Captain Swan fanfiction)

Fluffy little plot bunny that wouldn’t stop hopping around my head.

Almost everyone had left, leaving Granny’s diner almost empty but for the single booth in the corner where Emma and Killian sat. Overall, the party/naming celebration/whatever Snow and David wanted to call this had ended pretty early, with the new parents running home before nine. Regina had been one of the first to leave, and she had taken Henry home, throwing a look in Emma’s direction as she left that made her insides constrict like there was a fist squeezing them. It wasn’t the anger, she could deal with that. God knows she’d been on the receiving end of more than enough Evil Queen death stares to become immune. It was the hurt in her eyes that was preying on Emma’s mind, the look that Emma hadn’t been able to avoid since Marian had introduced herself. Marian and Robin had also been among the early departures.

Emma felt a gentle squeeze on her arm and looked up to see Killian, eyebrows knit together in concern.

‘You alright, love?’

'I’m fine.’ She smiled unconvincingly. He raised his eyebrows.

'Just… thinking about Regina. I really messed up there.’

We really messed up there.’ Now it was her turn to raise her eyebrows. 'Alright fine, that was you.’ The same unconvincing smile.

She checked her phone. 'Only half past ten and everyone’s gone home. Now I remember why I wanted to move to New York.’

'I’m still here, aren’t I?’

'Yeah. You are.’ This time a genuine smile broke out across her face. 'We should probably, uh, clear out though. Granny will be wanting to close up soon.’

'Indeed. My place or yours?’

'Well, how about I go to my place and you go to- wait, you have a place?’

'Well, it would be a compliment to call it a 'place’, but yes, I do live somewhere. It’s not the Jolly Roger but it’s somewhere to sleep.’

'And I’m the only thirty one year old I know who still lives with my parents. Looks like we’re going home alone tonight.’

'Can I at least walk you home?’ he asked as he slid out of the booth and held out his hand to help her up. She went to stand without him, but reconsidered and took his hand.

They had walked halfway down the street before they realised they hadn’t let go of each other’s hands yet. Emma noticed first.

'Oh, sorry.’ She went to remove it but he resisted. 'I’m not really a hand holder.’

'Of course. Neither am I.’ he pulled his hand away. She immediately felt colder and reached out again, taking his hand.

'I guess there’s no harm in trying.’ They both tried to conceal the grins that lit up their faces, before sneaking a glance at the other and laughing. 'It feels strange.’

'What does?’

'Being safe. Happy. Having nothing to do, no one to save.’

'I could definitely get used to it.’

'Yeah. Me too.’ The companiable silence persisted for a moment longer before Emma coughed. 'This is my stop.’

'Damn your parents and their convenient, walking-distance-from-town home.’

'They sure do know how to pick real estate.’ She said, looking at the picturesque cottage, the epitome of romantic suburbanism. She could see her father in the window, walking backwards and forwards with a bottle of formula milk in one hand and her newborn brother in the other. She wondered if she would ever have a house like that. A home like that, of her own. She looked at the man standing next to her, at his guyliner and leathers, and imagined him instead in a button-down and jeans, holding a raven-haired baby in his arms. She shook her head. It was too bizarre. Too… wonderful. Just the thought made her smile and want to run in equal measure. There was plenty of time for that in the future.

'Well, goodnight Swan.’ He was looking at her in a way no one had before. Neal had loved her, sure, but she never felt the way she did right now, with those blue eyes looking into hers. She had never been understood like this before. It was terrifying and intoxicating.

'Goodnight, Hook.’ she replied. Neither of them moved. He playfully touched his lips with the tips of his fingers, reminding her so much of their first kiss that she almost laughed out loud.

'I’ve not been in this world long, but I hear it’s customary, at the end of a night, for something along the lines of a goodnight kiss to occur.’

'You really haven’t been in this world long. Goodnight kisses happen at the end of dates. This wasn’t a date.’

'I suppose you’re right. Remind me to take you out on one of those. Maybe then I can get a goodnight kiss.’ He stepped closer. She glanced towards the window to see if David was still up. She could see the flickering light from the television on his face, but his eyes were fixed on baby Neal in his arms, a dreamy smile on his face.

'Maybe.’ She smiled.

And then they were kissing. She wasn’t sure how it had happened, or who had initiated it. But her fingers were tangled in his hair and his hand was creating a handprint of warmth on the small of her back and all she could hear was his heartbeat through his chest. He smelled of the sea and leather and something else, something she couldn’t quite place, that she thought she had smelled once at a bonfire. And then the warmth and the heartbeat and the elusive scent were gone. He walked away from her backwards, smiling crookedly, keeping eye contact until he faded into the darkness.

'Goodnight, Emma.’

She exhaled through her nose, touching her lips with the tips of her fingers as she started down the garden path towards the lit windows where her family slept.

@enterprising-ensign

She studies him silently, but not for too long. She didn’t want to seem rude, but she was quite curious, and she knew how worried everyone else had been. Everyone in the med-bay would be fussing over him for weeks, still, and she wasn’t sure what he would end up doing once he was completely recovered—or as good as he was going to get. Surely one wouldn’t be able to be a blind navigator? Perhaps she would take his place on the bridge.

Ah… best not to mention that, probably.

Everyone was pretty worried! Still are, actually. Uh… Evelina trails off, her words failing her briefly. “—My shift just ended, so if you need anything, I wouldn’t mind helping you out!

It was pouring rain and Ashly was supposed to be dead. But she wasn't, she was running towards Duncan's appartment and trying to stay alive. When she got there, she knew he wasn't home so she grabbed her key and let herself in. Immeadately after she shut the door, she showered and put on some sweatpants and the sweatshirt she was always taking from the other. Then, she curled up on the couch and went to sleep, waiting for the other to get home.

He unlocked the doors to his apartment after a long day, setting down his bags and putting his keys on the rack. It’s been 2 years since the death of the rebel leader Ashly, causing the group to dismember. Many went into hiding and unfortunately found. They were captured and murdered. As he turned on his lights and took his wet coat off, he went into the living room, sitting down on the couch. And jumped up when he saw a body laying on his couch. “Who are you?”

I bet it's going to take some time to get out of the underworld once they find killian.. probably have to set up camp a few times... maybe killian & emma will be so excited to see each other that they just can't wait to *ahem* celebrate? The prompt is for underworld sex I was just trying to jazz it up

The echoes of dripping, liquid fire bounce around them, up to the cavernous ceilings of the underworld. Somewhere above them the sun is rising in the world of the living, yellow and orange light saturating the land beneath the rays, staining meadows and forests gold until fully overhead and the blue sky takes over, vast and endless and living and colorful oh god.

 Emma remembers colors. Bright splashes of purples across mountains in the distance, the vibrant green of the trees on the horizon, the brilliant grays and blues of the tumultuous ocean lapping at the shore of the town. Killian standing, with his black, black hair and electric eyes staring out at the waves, a smile tugging at the corners of his mouth. Pink lips. White scars across his tan skin.

Ereri Week Day 5 - Mythology

I accidentally wrote 8,000 words for this prompt? I don’t know how that happened. I feel like this was such a mistake though, everyone is posting such amazing entries for mythology omg. I’m sorry about this.
Also, I don’t know if vampires fall under mythology, but let’s just pretend for now!

Warnings for blood and violence
Read it on AO3

Fight rings were illegal, and had been for some time now. However, human beings were a surprisingly bloodthirsty bunch. Bloodthirsty enough to bend the law and run the fights underground. Vampires, werewolves, trolls, witches and every creature the hunters were able to catch were sold off to the illegal rings, where they were forced to fight each other in front of paying audiences.

Levi, however, was not there to fight. Levi was food. The men that had captured him had assured him of that. He was human, so they couldn’t put him in the ring to fight - he would be torn apart in seconds, and that didn’t make for good entertainment. He was little more than a snack, something to be thrown to a beast to reward it for its bloodshed. It made him feel sick to his stomach.

The brothers are just metaphors in Elena's story. Stefan is idealism/innocence/youth. Damon is reality/pragmatism/adulthood. Human Elena tried desperately to hang onto her idealistic youth and the innocence that the death of her parents and the supernatural events around her kept trying to rip away. As a vampire she was forced to let go and embrace the reality of her sitution, be more pragmatic and move into adulthood. It's not about ruining the female protagonist it's character exploration.

I disagree. Human Elena actually did come to terms with these things in season  three. ‘I do feel stuck Matt. I feel like I’ve been holding onto the girl that was supposed to die here with her parents, the girl who had a normal life and wasn’t supposed to fall in love with vampires.’  3x11

Not long ago I actually read an interpretation about this scene along with the one when Stefan tries to run her off Wickery Bridge—same episode. And it very nearly took the wind out of me because I feel like I’m always learning something. Although, it’s just someone’s interpretation it feels so accurate, so on point that it’s hard to take it any other way. I don’t think I can do it justice by merely summing it up so, I’m going to paste it here and you can read it for yourself. By Signalfire15—-

^ While I think you have a point, I don’t think you are seeing the bigger picture of what this scene meant. Do you remember what happens at the end of the episode? You know, the part where Elena GOES BACK to the bridge with Matt and realizes that she had been holding onto the girl who was supposed to die there all along and she had a funeral for her old self. This episode, more than anything, was about REBIRTH. It was about Elena emerging into her own self. Finally letting go of what had been holding her back all this time. STEFAN SAVED HER. Not just from the car crash, but Stefan SAVED HER in every way. He brought her back to life. After the tragedy that had happened where she was supposed to have died, it was Stefan who saved her physically and Stefan who saved her emotionally. Stefan BRINGING HER BACK to the bridge in the way that he did was COMING FULL CIRCLE for Elena, for Stefan, and for the show. It was Elena being reborn, going back to where she started. Stefan HAD to do this. It was necessary. As a VIEWER, I truly understand the writers decision to have STEFAN be the one to take Elena back over the bridge in the WAY that he did. Don’t you see? It is all symbolic. He saved her the first time in every way. Now he took her back and ultimately saved her again. But this time, instead of saving her by being with her, he’s saving her by not being with her, by removing himself. Elena is finally ready to walk on her own now. No Stefan to hold her together. She doesn’t need to rely on him to bring her to life anymore. She can FINALLY MOVE ON. She was STUCK before and this was Elena LETTING GO. It HAD to be Stefan. Stefan had to be the one to do this. Because it was Stefan who brought her out the first time and saved her and it was Stefan who had to bring her back the second time so she could save herself. I can’t believe people are missing the importance of this scene and not connecting it. Elena would not have gone back to that bridge and had a funeral for herself and accepted her new life had it not been for this moment. And if this scene was coming full circle for Elena, it only means that it was the same for Stefan. Stefan took her back to this bridge in the way that he did because it was he who had saved her that day. And if he hadn’t, if he had just let it be, if he had just saved her and let her go, Elena could have had the life she always wanted. DON’T YOU SEE? Stefan feels like this is all his fault. He needed to know her and he couldn’t help but to fall in love with her and he believes that he ruined her life because of it. So this wasn’t just about Elena going back to where it all started. This was about STEFAN taking Elena back so that HE could let go as well. So that he could GIVE HER BACK the life that he thinks he STOLE from her. So he brought her back to the place where it first began so that he could have done what he should have done all along, but never had the strength to… to let her go. People were talking about how rude it was that Stefan just brought her there and left her there to fend for herself. But don’t you get it? That’s exactly what Stefan was supposed to do all along. He was supposed to walk away the first time he saved her. So he took her back to the start and did it right this time. He brought her to the bridge and walked away like he was supposed to. And that was coming full circle for Stefan. This moment did more for Elena and Stefan’s individual journey’s on this show than anything else. And THAT, my friend, is the bigger picture and the importance of this scene.

This is so great. It was actually development for their relationship and who they were as people and the way they saw it before. It was moving out of it, and into a different reality. But as you can see, she still loved Stefan and he still loved her. She still chose Stefan after this. She chose him because she knew she loved him. She didn’t know she could love Damon, and she didn’t want to be selfish with them which is why, for Elena, the choice was final. In her mind, I don’t think she could choose to act on feelings she didn’t know could be love and leave behind the thing she knew was love. Her choice was just as much about her love for Stefan was it was about who she was as a person. I can agree about seeing what happened next as character exploration—sure. But the writers had a choice in how to execute this. Human Elena felt conflicted about her feelings for Damon. She didn’t like what it said about who she was, and there were moral beliefs in mind here. I don’t believe her conscience allowed her to act on these feelings as a human which is why they didn’t do this until she turned into someone darker, someone more willing and accepting of her feelings and Damon’s. And I believe this is more or less what JP said. She felt strongly that Elena would not and could not separate from Stefan and fall in love with Damon until she was a vampire. And that’s because it would be in direct conflict with Elena’s character to have done so as a human. To say that Elena moved into ‘adulthood’ with Damon by losing a great deal of her compassion, empathy, and moral conscience is not exactly what I would call accurate. Are they exploring her character in this ‘journey?’ Yes. But again, look at how they chose to do so. They had to change their character in a much less flattering light to accomplish it. They kept the human Elena character in tact—for a reason.
