  • When Percy did that weird hand sign (that was never explained) and the door slammed on Gabe so hard he flew up the steps
  • The fact that when Grover finally tracked Percy down he wasn’t wearing any pants. Like, there was literally no reason for him to not have the fake feet and the jeans on.

Pairing: Bucky Barnes x Reader

Word Count: 7,501 (ok kinda sorry)

Warnings: angst!, a tiny bit of violence, swear words, alcohol

Summary: Being Bucky’s best friend (after Steve of course) gets a lot of perks - but being in love with him WHILE being his best friend means that your adoration must be kept a secret. That also means you have to silently endure every single encounter with women he has whether he tells you or you see it for yourself.

A/N: So this one shot is based on the Amy Shark song “Adore You” (she speaks to me on so many levels!) and I just really wanted a Bucky fic for it because he’d be absolutely clueless to someone adoring him like this…I also kind of skipped over the “oh look at him I’m in love with him” fluffy stuff and I just focused on the couple of days leading up to the point reader can’t take it anymore. I like the angst - it fuels me *evil laugh*

Y/F/I = Your First Initial


I’m just gonna stand with my bag hanging off my left arm

I’m just gonna walk home kicking stones at parked cars

But I had a great night ‘cause you kept rubbing against my arm

I’m just gonna stand with my bag hanging off my left arm


You hugged Wanda and Nat, giving small waves to the boys, before turning to Bucky. 

“Hey B, I’m going to head back to the tower. The mission took a bigger toll on me than I thought.” You made a show of rubbing your neck, hoping the sadness in your eyes would be mistaken for exhaustion.

Bucky turned away from the young, curvy brunette tucked under his arm, his smile fading as his eyes scanned over you with concern. He didn’t move away from her, nor did you move any closer, instead you gripped the strap of your bag hard, until your knuckles were white, in an effort to ignore the pain radiating through your chest.

“Are you sure? Did you want me to come with you?”

You gave serious thought to saying yes, knowing he’d probably give the woman a kiss and get her phone number before following you out of the bar, talking your ear off about how she was this and that. All the while, you would be fighting the anger and nausea bubbling up your throat, fighting back the urge to scream at him to shut up about her and every other woman, just fighting to keep your face neutral as you listened to the love of your life pine after any and every other woman but you.

“You unlock this door with the key of imagination, beyond it is another dimension. A dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You’re moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You have just crossed over into … The Twilight Zone." 

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is located at the Disney Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. At the end of Sunset Boulevard looms the imposing Hollywood Tower Hotel. It’s 13 stories high (naturally) and is home to the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror a high speed thrill ride, that sends you falling down 13 stories.

THE MODERN LOSERS CLUB AT DISNEY WORLD BC THEY DESERVE TO BE HAPPY

  • Ok so it’s Ben’s idea because he’s the only one that’s ever been
  • And Stan and Mike are the ones that plan the trip with Ben and get hotel rooms and everything
  • You KNOW Richie is a fucking CHILD and spends the majority of their time in the parks running around doing ALL of the rides and eating ALL of the sugar
  • And poor Eddie is running around making sure he doesn’t throw up or hurt himself (he does throw up after the Tower of Terror and Eddie is there with plastic gloves)
  • Speaking of Eddie, he has everything in his fannypack. Sunscreen, gel, antibacterial wipes, umbrellas, ponchos, you name it he has it.
  • He tries to get everyone to wear a fanny pack to make everything easier but that idea is shot down real quick
  • Richie drags Eddie on all of the thrill rides and Eddie loses his voice by the end of the first day from screaming so much
  • But Eddie doesn’t stop going on the roller coasters bc he secretly loves them
  • Beverly also goes on all the thrill rides
  • She’s the one that makes the others stop and smell the roses
  • She’s the pin collecter of the group and will trade with anyone and everyone
  • This one little girl thinks she’s a princess so Bev just goes along with it and gives her her favorite pin (a Princess Leia one) and it makes the little girl’s (and Bev’s) whole trip
  • She lives for the parades and the show and just so desperately wants to take everything in
  • Ben wants to get a picture with all of the characters and collect their autographs
  • The Losers don’t make fun of him for wanting to get pictures but he’s a little self conscious and Bev sees this so she gets pictures with everyone as well
  • Ben’s favorite picture is of him Bev and Ariel and makes it the background on his phone
  • (((Richie will never admit it but he’s terrified of the giant head characters)))
  • Bill is the one with the maps that valiantly tries to lead everyone everywhere but of course…it’s chaos
  • ALSO ALIVE GEORGIE??
  • Because Bill follows him everywhere and Georgie is this wide eyed little boy experiencing Disney for the first time and Bill is living through him
  • Georgie also follows Richie and Bev on all the thrill rides and they give him so much candy until Bill finds Georgie shaking from a sugar rush and Richie and Bev look super guilty
  • Also Bill and Richie have this INTENSE rivalry when it comes to Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin and Toy Story Mania
  • Like they’re all competitive but they know to stay clear of those two by the end of the trip
  • They spend almost the whole trip either trashtalking each other or trying to mess the other up
  • Turns out Bill and Richie are all talk and no game because Mike gets the highest scores out of all of them
  • Mike is the photographer and the one that’s documenting the whole trip
  • He fucking LOVES Epcot and World Showcase
  • So does Ben and Stan so they spend a lot of the time eating around the world and looking up cool stuff in Future World
  • Speaking of Stan, he’s the one that wants to just go back to the hotel and nap
  • Stan is TERRIFIED of heights and roller coasters and refuses to go on any thrill rides
  • The Losers somehow convince him to go on Soarin and he does but with Bev and Mike both holding his hands
  • By the end he’s crying and all the Losers start apologizing for making him go on
  • Until
  • “That was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen”
  • Soarin is his new favorite ride
  • Eddie loves old movies so he loves Hollywood Studios and all the old movie memorabilia
  • The Losers’ favorite ride is Star Tours
  • They go on that as often as they can
  • And one time Stan is the Rebel Spy
  • And he looks fucking MISERABLE
  • The Losers can’t stop laughing and they take pictures of him as the Spy and it becomes a huge meme within the group
  • Richie never lets Stan live it down
  • Richie tries to do the Jedi Training Academy with Georgie and he actually bugs the cast member running it enough that they let him
  • So the Losers are dying because it’s all these little kids and Richie and when he fights Darth Vader he’s so into it
  • Mike grabs a video
  • He doesn’t stop talking about it for the rest of the trip
  • Eddie fucking HATES Animal Kingdom because it smells like piss and shit
  • He’s horrified when Richie and company goes to the place where you pet the animals and he makes them all go back to the hotel immediately and disinfect
  • Mike loves Animal Kingdom and loves learning about all the different animals
  • By the fireworks, Bill is carrying an asleep Georgie and he gently wakes him up so he can see the fireworks and he’s so soft and quiet but filled with awe and Bill is such a good big brother
  • Eddie is plugging his ears (because those fireworks are loud!) and watching the fireworks and Richie looks over and sees the fireworks reflected in those big eyes and he’s overwhelmed with love and leans over and pecks him on the cheek and Eddie blushes and snuggles closer
  • ANYWAY I LOVE THESE LOSERS FEEL FREE TO ADD YOUR OWN
  • and credit also goes to @cosmipup for talking to me about this and adding their own headcanons

[Thursday, June 15th, 2017. 10:52 p.m.]

i rebelled with little lies,
like kissing the water fountain
when i asked to use the restroom,
or when i denied that it was i
who gifted jasmine with the heartshaped
box of chocolates. justin said
it was he who bestowed them on her instead.
i hated him, his epilepsy, his bleeding eyes,
his refusal to give me a present
despite being my secret santa.
ten years old and already hateful. how laughable.
how pitiful. soon i will be hot in santa ana,
but back then i was willing to sit in the shade
of garbage cans with prison bars,
in front of mary statues, sit there quietly
and rot.
it was a fleeting love, but it was love all the same,
and i never learned the lesson not to love the insane.
more glibly, never stick my dick in crazy.
i haven’t done it lately - this lady was okay,
just odd and there, no underwear, no fear.
i didn’t get her name.
i will read the gadfly soon while sandra
burns her robe. i promised myself
that if i were being honest, i would allow myself
one sliver of hope. but i have not been honest.
i am not concerned with a body count,
the notches, tally marks, the gloat;
i look at marc and juliet, romance on the river,
brown happiness on a boat;
i see proposals and engagements,
reluctant grins and candid snaps.
i see opportunities in front of me,
nude and beckoning, perpetually out of my grasp.
so this is a new life. a thrill ride, a rollercoaster,
me barely strapped in while i’m effortlessly
tossed around. so this is what i embraced.
so this is what i chased.
and alone, as usual, i succumb to the result:
yet another bond that i must break
if i am to breathe. if i am to wake.

i am not a prince, sasuke states matter-of-factly, or a lord. i hold no position or land - i can give you nothing of which you deserve. even my family name -

he stops abruptly and sakura’s heart breaks for him, because who in the kingdom has not heard tell of the house of uchiha and its fall from grace - of the family’s collective treason, its execution, how one young boy survived only because he had lived his six years blissfully unaware - ?

i am but a palace guard, sasuke continues.

you are guard to the prince himself, sakura corrects. and, i don’t care. not a bit. you may not be noble by birth or by name, but your character surpasses that of any title you could hold. 

she smiles brightly at him, fierce and stubborn to a fault. i choose us, okay? so, there.

she turns and pulls him along the path, and sasuke wonders, again, how this girl could give him such hope when there is so very little of it left in his eyes. he thinks:

(if you are the sun in my world, then i am no more than the pale moonlight reflected by you)


i spent so much time on this i’m mostly glad to just be done with it orz
(i’ve also recently watched the entirety of downton abbey it was a thrilling ride)

This week, we try the world’s tallest slingshot (so conveniently located in Orlando). It goes over 300 feet high (with possibility to go about 400 feet as well for the more intense version) and it was something that Ray was absolutely terrified to do. Hilarity ensues. 

It’s a stupid fluffy parody I drew in RUN era(hence the hairstyle) and after a long struggle I just gave up the translation hahahaha. It was 1000 days anniversary and now It’s 3rd year anniversary!
I can’t write so it’s not a fanfic but just notes of random ideas.
Very special thanks to dear @art-blisters for helping me translate all text!!TOT You’re my angel FOR REAL.
