to tulsa and back

can I get some good vibes, pls?

I sent in my application (about a week ago) to a job at one of the libraries in Tulsa. it’s full-time, includes benefits, and pays a salary that would let me afford a NICE apartment. not just like, nice-for-our-broken-millenial-dreams

like

this bitch has a pool, a yoga studio, a fitness room with exercise equipment, a tv lounge / mini library / open kitchen space

every apartment has a 17 x 9 balcony I could put planters in for flowers

all stainless steel appliances AND pets are allowed

I would only be 1 mile (~5 min by car) away from the library, right next to the riverside with jogging paths, and tulsa is a very liberal city in a very red state!

so yeah, this could be life-changing and a huge improvement for me and I’d really appreciate prayer, well-wishes, just any sort of positive thought you could send out for me

~Dean gives you a very happy birthday…~

Dean x Reader

1,054 Words

Warnings: NSFWish… Smluff.

A/N: This is my birthday gift to my darling Stephie, @torn-and-frayed. I don’t do mushy, but here goes: you are awesome, and as I’ve told you… you’re the reason I started tumbrling and writing and I’m so glad we started talking. Hope you have a great birthday, dude. 

“What the hell is all this?”

As soon as you stepped through the Bunker door you knew something was up. Well, in truth you’d known all day. Dean had sent you out of town with a weird list of supplies and had been dodging your calls all day. You knew he was up to something, you just didn’t know what. Until now.

Your fingers gripped the metal rail as you leaned over the balcony, looking down into the War Room. It was definitely a sight to behold. The air was filled with bright blue balloons, some tied to chairs in bunches, others flying free against the high ceiling. The glowing table was filled with groups of various items, and Dean Winchester stood by the bottom of the stairs looking up at you with a rather nervous grin.

“Y/N,” he greeted as you descended the steps quickly, “Happy birthday, baby.”

“What did you do?” you laughed as Dean grabbed your hips and lifted you down the last two steps to stand beside him.

He kissed your cheek and motioned towards the table, holding your hand as he led you over to it. “Well, I know you were kind of freaking out about turning thirty, so I thought I would show you that thirty can be good.”

“That’s insane,” you laughed, “but really sweet.”

The problem is that Jeremy has no furniture.

Well, that’s not quite true. He ordered a mattress and bed frame to be delivered the day they get back from Tulsa, and he ends up setting it up while Jean watches in vague puzzlement from the doorway.

“I just love that I get to give you all these new experiences,” Jeremy says around the screwdriver in his mouth.

“I didn’t realise IKEA furniture was considered an experience,” Jean replies. “But actually, I see your point.”

“I don’t know how you couldn’t consider this an experience,” Jeremy says, taking the screwdriver from his mouth to gesture around himself at the confusing array of parts he has yet to put together. “It’s like, a universal part of moving into an apartment. Or so I’ve heard.”

“Well, thank you then,” Jean replies. “I think that’s back to front, by the way.”

So Damn Lucky

Pairing: Dean x plus size!Reader 

Characters: Dean Winchester, Reader, Sam Winchester

Word Count: 524

Warnings: Self hate, fluff

Summary: Just check out the request.

Notes: ‘Twas a request. This was the request.

Request: Hi hi. I loved your dean x plus size reader. I myself as a plus size lady never get the guy in rom coms so it was a good read. My request is could you write another plus size reader with Dean but it’s her time of the month and gets really snappy and super hardcore on the self hate. You don’t have to if you don’t want to or are uncomfortable. Thank you!

P.S. @anechoofbella has gotten pretty busy so part two of Misplaced Anger won’t be out for a while…

Master List

You laid in face down on the mattress, groaning while the heating pad rested on your lower back. It was that time of the month but for some reason this period was worse than past ones. Everything was upped, the cramps, the food cravings, the bloating, the mood swings, and the self-hate.

Ever since you started dating Dean your self esteem was boosted, it was a bit rocky at first but the older Winchester showered you with constant love. But every now and the little voices come back and decided they wanted to play. Usually you can ignore it but this time was different, mostly because Dean wasn’t here to help you.

The Winchesters had left to do a quick salt and burn a couple days ago, promising they’ll be back sometime today. You decided to stay behind because of the pain you were in.

This left the bunker dead silent besides the faint whirring of the some machines. It was unsettling
but there wasn’t much you could do about so there you lay on the bed.

Until the boys came home.

“Hey Y/N,” Dean greeted, walking into your shared bedroom.

“Hi,” you replied stiffly. You felt Dean sit down on the end of the bed and heard a pair of shoes hit the floor.

The older Winchester walked over to the left side of the bed and knelt down on the wooden floor to look at you. He put his elbows on the bed and spoke softly, “You okay?”

You rolled your eyes and responded, “Just peachy.” Dean stayed sitting for a bit, trying to think of ways to help you and then he remembered the chocolates he bought on the way back from Tulsa. Your boyfriend got up and told you he was gonna be right back and jogged to get the chocolate that was still in Baby.

Dean strolled into the bedroom for a second time with chocolates in hand. You looked up and saw what Dean was holding and sighed, “Oh great, you brought me stuff that’ll make me fatter than I already am.”  The older Winchester was shocked, he hadn’t heard you talk about yourself in this way for a couple years.

“Who gives a crap Y/N/N? I certainly don’t, you are so fucking beautiful that I keep wondering how I got so damn lucky.”

“You’re just saying that because you pity me, I know you prefer skinny chicks.”

“If that were true, I wouldn’t be with you Y/N,” You went silent, he was right.  Dean gently rubbed your lower back while he thought of other things to say. “I love you Y/N/N, a lot. I want you to know that…. And what’s up with the self hate, you’re never like this.”

Your shoulders shrugged and flipped over on your back, sitting up against the wall. “I love you,” you croaked with tears falling down your acne ridden face. Dean took off his jacket and moved further into the bed to hug you. “I’m sorry for snapping at you.”

“It’s okay,” Dean responded.

“… Can I have that chocolate?” Your boyfriend snorted.

“Sure sweetheart.”

Flower Rain

Warning: Mention and small description of death, SUUUUPER tiny mention of pregnancy

Sentence summary: Dallas, after years of being everywhere but Tulsa, Oklahoma, returns to say hellos and final goodbyes.

It had been years since I’d been here. Years. But everything was as I remember it to be.

Leaving was one of the best and worst decisions of my life. I started new, but I miss the old me. The guy everyone thought I was. At the time, I left in a hurry because I didn’t want to do something too irrational.

Welcome to Tulsa, Oklahoma is written in a gentle curly script. I almost smiled. But today is supposed to be a happy day. I was getting back into my past with the same old boys that I’ve missed.

Of course, I stop by Buck’s place. It’s early in the morning—about 5—so he’ll be going off to sleep. I knock on the door loud, to make sure if he’s drunk, he can still hear me. He answers the door almost immediately. An audible gasp escapes his lips. “If it ain’t Dally Winston,” I smile. I haven’t been called anything but Dallas or Mr. Winston for a long time. “What you doing back in ol’ Tulsa?”

“Back to visit you and the boys…”

“Wanna come inside? I still have tons of your stuff upstairs.”

“You kept my stuff? Where is it?”

“Same room you were always in. Never wanted to move the shit in case you came back.” That makes me a bit sad. “But you never did… Glad to see you again, buddy. Stay as long as you’d like.”

“I’m actually gonna grab a few things and head out,” I quickly grab a few things I know I want and tell Buck I’ll be back either later today or tomorrow. Next stop, the Curtis house.

I had missed these boys more fiercely than I’d missed anyone else. They had kept me grounded and cool. In time, I learned to keep myself calm. Opening this gate is one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. I want to see them, but do they want to see me? After Johnny— I ran faster than the wind could take me. I wanted out of this life, but I knew he wouldn’t want that.

This old door used to always be unlocked, maybe it still is…

The door pops open and I see the gang on the couch and floor. Sodapop shirtless per usual. Pony…he’s got stubble. How long has it been?

“It’s been two years, Dally.” Darry’s stern, but sweet voice sounds. I must have spoken out loud.

“Two years. Has it really been that long since Johnny—?”

“Died,” Steve chimes in.

“Yes.” That was the one word I could never bring myself to say, or even think. It just made his absence that much more real. “Aye, where’s Two-bit?”

Ponyboy looks at me, his eyes watery. “Same as Johnny.” My eyes go wide.

“How?”

“Gettin’ almost black-out drunk in a bar full of Socs is not a good mix. No blades. Guns. We were runnin’ out into the night and the man tripped over his own drunk feet and they got him. I-I couldn’t call the cops. They’d have blamed it on me,” Steve says. His eyes look glazed over as though he’s reliving the memory.

Soda takes a deep breath and it makes me look away from Steve. “Whatcha doin’ here, Dal?”

“It’s been two years too long. I needed to see my boys. I wanted to see where he was….buried too.”

“Nice little cemetery. We all pulled together the money for it because those parents of his wouldn’t,” Pony says.

I blink and close my eyes. Trying to stop the tears threatening to leak through. My voice a little hoarse, I say, “Will ya take me there? I brought flowers.”

“But Dallas, it’s storming and the wind’s blowing pretty hard. Might make those flowers go everywhere,” Darry tells me.

“I don’t care.” I stand and Pony follows me out. Just like old times.

On the way, we speak no words. I’m soaked to the bone and so is he. When we arrive, I notice the only grave in this cemetery is under a flowering tree on a hill. “Why on the hill?” I ask.

“So he can look at the sun and stars.”

I cough and bend down touching the tombstone. “Jonathan Andrew Cade. A buddy, a generous soul, a dreamer.”

“Uh Pony, can I have a word with him?” He gives me a look, then walks away.

“So I see they put you here, huh?” I chuckle because I’m nervous. “Not where I would’ve put you, but it’s nice. I bet you’re happy. You know, man, I’ve been living everywhere but here because I didn’t want to not see your face. You were the only thing that kept me sane. I got me a girl. She’s real nice. You’d love her. Got a reral pretty name too. (Y/N). She’s pregnant. We’re gonna name him after you. If it’s a boy. A girl, she said Cade’s fine as a middle name. You would have been the baby’s godfather. And I would’ve stayed in Tulsa….” My tears choke me up and I can’t breath.

I take deep breaths and look around. The wind is causing the flowering tree beside me to blow pink flowers all over me and Johnny’s grave. “I remember this old tree. It’d flower in the summer and we’d come down here on windy days. Flower rain. That’s what you called it. Such a sweet and innocent kid.”

I stand and brush the dirt off my backside and legs. Pony comes back, tears in his eyes. He hugs me and instead of pushing him away or calling him a wuss. I embrace him too.

youdigokay  asked:

What headcanons do you have about Soda dying in Vietnam?

• when sodapop gets drafted steve absolutely loses it and ends up enlisting himself too

• during the months he’s gone (and still alive) darry or ponyboy will still accidentally set out a plate for him for breakfast / dinner before Remembering

• same with jelly. whenever eggs are made they still put it on the table out of habit

• sodapop gets sent to vietnam four months after being drafted. his letters would become more and more rare as he spends the next year there

• finally, 16 months after being sent away, he writes darry and ponyboy telling them he’s coming home

• one month before sodapop was supposed to get sent home, he’s killed in battle by a piece of shrapnel from a bomb

• darry & ponyboy, who’ve been literally bouncing off the walls waiting to get their brother back, get the letter two weeks later. (two weeks before he was supposed to be home)

• steve doesn’t find out until he gets back to tulsa, because no one could find it in themselves to tell him that his best friend is dead by writing it on a piece of paper

• sodapop gets buried right next to mr & mrs curtis

• two bit somehow becomes even more of an alcoholic, and even though he tries to hide it, he’s not a cheery as he used to be by a long shot

• ponyboy can’t find it in himself to clean his room because he knows he’ll find sodapop’s things & can’t handle it

• steve quits the DX because it reminds him too much of his best friend and finds work at another garage

• steve drifts away from the curtis gang for a minute, because ponyboy reminds him too much of sodapop and the house is overwhelming for him. so for a while, all pony and darry have left is two-bit

• when asked about his name, ponyboy will still say “i got a brother named sodapop.” nobody bothers correcting him.

• they eventually get sodapop’s possessions back, which include the following: an unsent letter to Sandy, explaining that he’s in vietnam and he hopes her and the baby are okay, and that hopefully, if he ever makes it home, he’ll get to meet them one day / a family picture of him, his brothers, and their parents / a picture of the gang (taken when dallas and johnny were still alive) / his mother’s good luck charm / another unsent letter addressed to no one, saying that he keeps having dreams that he won’t ever make it back home, but he hopes it’s all just in his head. there’s a date in the top right corner, and it marks two days before he was killed in battle

• ponyboy, who eventually becomes a published author, creates a character inspired by sodapop, and puts a little memorial page for his brother in the back of the book

• darry eventually gets married, and names his first son Patrick

Perfect- A Dally Imagine

“You’re perfect for me.” -requested by anonymous

Warnings:none

It was a hot summer day. It wasn’t the nice kind of hot that encouraged swimming at the pool and going out for ice cream. No, this was a different kind of hot. It was as if the Devil himself decided to make home in Tulsa. Sweat dripped down necks, causing clothes to stick to backs.

You were with Dally at your house. Your parents were gone for the weekend, so it was just the two of you. You sat on the couch watching tv. Dally had fallen asleep on your lap.

This was a rare instance, just the two of you, calm and quiet without anything to worry about except for the heat. You smiled as you watched him sleep. He looked so peaceful in contrast to his usual façade of tough and angry.

You and Dally weren’t perfect. You guys fought often and neither of you were very forgiving. He drank and smoked a bit too much. He worried you a lot.

Despite your differences, you two were made for each other. You were like two puzzle pieces that weren’t met to be together, but still fit. He was there for you. When you parents fought, he was there. When your cousin died, he was there. Anytime you were in a tough spot, he was right by your side. He wasn’t the best at comforting you, but you knew he meant well.

You looked back down at him as he shifted in your lap. He was still asleep. Dally was a heavy sleeper.

“Dallas Winston, you are perfect for me.” You whispered, twirling a piece of his hair around your finger.

You thought he was asleep, but little did you know, he had heard you. He let a small smile slip and wrapped his hands around your waist.

Boy, was he perfect.

  • 🎈- A memory about a time they were safe and relaxed

When he was 12, shortly after he moved back to Tulsa, he was hanging out with the gang outside when it starting to rain really hard. Mrs. Curtis called them all in and all of them crowded into the living and instead of wresting around and fighting with each other, they all sat around and listened to Mr. Curtis tells stories about when he was younger and WW2 and Mrs. Curtis got them all cups of hot chocolate. 


It was the first time in years he could remember looking around and feeling like he was surrounding my family. 

Johnny was leaned next to him, wide-eyed with every detail of Mr. Curtis’ story, Soda and Steve were listening with intent rather than horsing around with each other like usually, Two-bit was actually keeping quiet, and Ponyboy was asleep on the couch with his head in his mothers lap. 


This memory stuck with him for years, and whenever he’d get locked up or stuck in a bad situation, he would think hard back on this moment and try to picture it all over again. 

Falling in love with Dally’s Sister

Request: What if you were Dally’s sister/best friend from New York and you moved to Tulsa, then started loving Johnny and he liked you back? I don’t know if that’s a headcannon or imagine, but yeah!

a/n- heads up these are pretty awful. (vv sorry)

- after years of being apart you decided to reconnect with your absolute best friend Dallas and made a huge move from New York to Tulsa. 

- Dallas was surprisingly extremely excited when he caught wind that you were in town.

- He introduced you to all his close friends immediately.

- Everyone, especially Johnny was stunned that you and Dal were best buds bc you were polar opposites.

- You may or may not have started to develop a huge  small crush on Johnny bc of how kind & gentle he was in comparison to most people you knew. (Plus he took good care of Dallas)

- Slowly but surely hanging out with Dallas led to becoming close with Johnny and Pony.

- Pony really easily caught on to your crush on his best friend.

- Pony told Dallas that you were pining over Johnnycake, but Dal didn’t believe him. 

- “Get this y/n/n, Ponyboy seems to think that you have a crush on Johnny! The kid’s fucking delusional!” “Oh well, about tha-” “You do!?”

- Dallas and Pony grill Johnny trying to find out if he had feeling for you as well.

- After hours of pestering him, they got Johnny to confess and soon they were creating a master plan to get the two of you together.
