Pairing: Felix x Reader


Reader Gender: neutral


Prompt: “This is an apology pizza. Please take it or I will start crying right here.”


***


Arsehole.

Dickhead.

Imbecile.

Narcissist.

With every vile thought, you threw something at your wall. Trying to let out your rage. You were about to grab another lamp but soon realised that that wasn’t a good idea, you didn’t exactly want to buy a new one and so far you had smashed $250 worth of things. You put the lamp back down and kicked the wall before sitting down on your lounge.

You were just so mad, ever since that Shark Boy came around he had been ignoring you, giving your jobs to him, treating you as though you can’t do anything for shit, making you stay behind and hang around with the Blues. He was treating you as though you were lesser than him, Locus and Fish Sticks.

Felix used to be so great around you, yes. He was an arsehole, granted. But, he was your arsehole, very cliché yes, but he was more jokey around you and seemed to be closer to what his truer self was. You even knew that he used to be a complete theatre nerd, which didn’t surprise you because he was a complete drama queen. But evened since Fish with Legs came he seemed distant and would urge you to not do anything to do with mission and let him go with the others without you. And tonight, he finally crossed the line when he wouldn’t even let you can around with him in public, so, you left,without a word. You didn’t tell him why you were leaving when he asked you, and you you didn’t look back when he called your name. As far as you knew, you were done.

You heard a knock on your door and rolled your eyes, “Whoever it is you get bugger off, not in the mood.” You called out.

They knocked again.

“I said: go away!”

Knock knock knock

You stormed to the door, “For Gods sake do you not know the meaning of piss off!?” You swung the door open to see Felix standing there with a square box with a single rose on top.

“Oh, it’s you,” you said unimpressed leaning on your door frame, your screen door was still shut so it created a barrier between the two of you, “What’d you want.”

He took a breath before speaking and holding out the box, “This is an apology pizza. Please take it or I will start crying right here.”

You raised an eyebrow looking at him in a are-you-kidding-me way.

“Please,” he added, a tiny hint of desperation then added jokingly, “C'mon, you know I’m a theatre kid, I will start crying.”

You smiled slightly before you unlocked the screen door and letting him in and he walked in. As soon as you had closed both doors and locking them (hey come on, you were a mercenary but you weren’t going to kill any random who broke into your house). When you turned around to speak to him you were immediately embraced by his arms. He hugged you tightly, resting his head in the crook of your neck, “I’m didn’t mean it.”

You pushed yourself out of his arms, “Oh yeah, that’s why you’ve been treating me like shit.”

“It’s not like that,” he said.

“Then what is it, Felix?” You said crossing your arms waiting for his answer.

He sighed, running a hand through his hair, “I don’t like this Shark guy, it’s bad enough we have to put up with the councillor guy, and you know my policy.”

“Never trust anyone,” you nodded.

“And I just think that he’s going to pull that stupid cliché crap, and …”

“Yes?” You urged.

“I’ve noticed the way he’s been looking at you and when I see it it makes me… I don’t know, I don’t like it.”

“You’re jealous?” You raised an eyebrow.

“… maybe,” he quickly changed the subject, “So, you wanna eat pizza?”

You smiled and nodded leading him to the lounge and sat him down, he looked around the destructed room and looked at you questionably, “What happened here?”

“Anger management.” You said simply taking a slice of pizza.

“Aww honey, you did that because of me?” He teased.

“Shut your face,” you smiled, nudging him.

“You love me,” he smirked, leaning in to kiss your cheek and you turned your head to kiss his lips.

“Told you so,” he smirked, “Maybe I should keep you around, just so fish boy knows your mine.”

You leaned against him resting your head on his chest as he wrapped his arm around your shoulders.

You smiled slightly to yourself knowing that Felix was scared of losing you and havering you be used against him. Maybe he did care, just in his own, Felix kind of way.

Quick Note & Policy Change

Afternoon, everybody! 

I already talked about this on Twitter, so for those who saw it there, apologies for the repeat info and bear with me, please.

Everyone knows my mantra: Ship Without Shame. I believe that everybody has the right to like what they like (and dislike whatever they want).  I also believe that – when it comes to media sites / news – sites set and determine the tone and message that decides the company you keep.

I don’t expect any media site to like everything I like. I don’t care if they do or don’t.  Differences make the world go round. What I do take issue with is when a site (or podcast or round-table etc) decides to include “judgement” on viewers by commenting on the *viewer* not the fictional story/characters.  There’s been a lot of that going around in the media circles lately and it’s left me debating adjusting the policies of my social media accounts.

Shippers are fans.  Period.  We like what we like and, just like fans of action or humor or comic books, our likes & preferences are as valid as anyone elses. We do not have to apologize for it or be “quiet” about it. Or “wait our turn.”  We get to be as loud, passionate, visible, happy or unhappy as any other fan. 

If there’s a hill I die on in battle, it will be in the defense of Romance and those who enjoy it. This is why I encourage shippers to never apologize for or explain their passions.  Why I encourage you to be vocal and passionate about your hobbies and interests.  You are as worthwhile, important, and “matter” as much as any other viewer, and don’t ever forget it. You need no one’s permission.

Hand in hand with that is an expectation that – as a fan/viewer – I feel like I am treated respectfully by the media sites I choose to visit. So, after sitting back and watching this hiatus, I’m adjusting my policy on my social media accounts.

Basically what it comes down to is this: I will no longer be sharing links to sites, round-tables, podcasts, etc., that I feel disrespect me (or you) as a shipper and fan of Romance.

IIn media, words are their business.  It’s their job. Words and tone are purposeful choices. If a site chooses to use their platform to “shipper shame” (or click-bait, troll, or only try to appeal to me/Olicity/shippers when they need traffic or promotion) I am refusing to give them any of my business or promotion.  I have enough respect for myself, my interests, and – by extension – the people who visit my Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, etc., to NOT support those sites.

I know that this will undoubtedly impact what it shared here when it comes to articles, interviews, promos, etc., and I apologize for that, but I have always felt a weird responsibility to my followers to ensure that what is shared/linked here adheres to the tone I want to create on my accounts, which is a fun, safe, positive (even if that does involve criticism that I do hope is always constructive) environment for Olicity shippers.

I feel a responsibility to meet the standard of “trust” you put in me when you followed me. I hope you understand my decision and my goal to only support media that truly reflects my interests and respects me (and you) as viewers and shippers.

Thank you.

I have started a strict no workplace dating policy. It’s all too… You know? They see you, all of you. Then they come to work and they see you here, too, and you try to keep it professional and get things done, but suddenly you’re thinking, I was naked on you before or I wish you were naked now. Hey, remember when you were there at my very rock bottom and I went down the rabbit hole and dragged you in with me and bared the darkest parts of my soul to you in the midnight hours? So, now let’s have a budget meeting. It’s a solid policy. Trust me.

Amelia Shepherd → 11x24 You’re my home

anonymous asked:

Hillary would bring thousands of radical Muslims to America. Think we have a rape culture now and homosexuals have it rough? Try taking a look at the middle east where gays are thrown off roof tops. And women are beaten, stoned, raped and tortured.

Okay, well then. Normally I wouldn’t respond to this sort of thing, but you know what? I’m tired, I’m stressed, I’m pissed, and your arguments are so faulty you’d be kicked out of my debate club in a heartbeat. So here, you provoked someone into answering. Congrats.

First point: “Hillary would bring thousands of radical Muslims to America [who come from a culture that treats minorities and women worse than the US currently does.]”

A), as someone with a great many Muslim immigrants as acquaintances, you’re stereotyping them greatly, and you’re being racist. Those who come here and are so inclined as far as that mindset goes, are so happy to be somewhere they have no need to fear being bombed at night they keep their opinions to themselves, in my experience.

B) Even if your statement were true, how is the potential of citizens with that belief set somehow worse than the FUCKING PRESIDENT endorsing those views? You’ve lost me. Were Clinton to bring in, “thousands of radical Muslims,” they would be CITIZENS, and most likely treated with suspicion and given little to no power in terms of political beliefs, because of Islamophobia. Trump would be THE HEAD OF ONE THIRD OF THE NATIONAL GOVERNMENT OF A WORLD SUPERPOWER. Tell me how Trump is better, again, would you?

Second point, which is implied: Were Hillary Clinton to become president, it would somehow become socially acceptable to have, “ gays are thrown off roof tops. And women are beaten, stoned, raped and tortured.”

A) thankfully, the opinions of a subset of the population do not influence societal norms (such as not throwing people off roof tops) to such a significant degree. Luckily so, or else the KKK (which whole-heartedly endorses Trump, if you were curious) would have changed society to the point where we still have slavery. So, no.

B) Fuck you. This makes literally no sense.

OTHER POINTS YOU WOULD PROBABLY BRING UP:

‘Hillary Clinton used a private email server!’

So did the Bush administration (The most recent Republican president), and countless other admins did too.

‘She’s a liar!’

She’s a politician. None of them will ever tell the complete truth if they have to; it’d damage their goals. However, I trust her to follow through on what she will do, and hey, at least she doesn’t lie about absolutely ridiculous things any fifth grader with a smart phone can prove wrong. (i.e “China invented global warming!” “I never said that!”)

Oh, and what’s Trump, again? Have you seen the meme “’Trump: I didn’t say that!’ Internet: ‘yes you did!’“

According to this site, a well respected political newspaper, “Trump averaged one falsehood every 3 minutes and 15 seconds.“ That same site says Hillary lies most about herself, but never about her stances, and she follows through.

‘The Clinton foundation is fishy, and needs to be investigated!”

The Trump Foundation used donations to buy a six foot portrait of Donald Trump. The Clinton Foundation has a long history of actually helping people. Oh, and it actually releases its tax returns. Next?

‘There’s fraud in her life!”

Two words: Trump University.

‘She’s no good!’

Look at this post, since it’s beautiful and correct.

‘I don’t trust her foreign policy!’

Again, look at this post, read it, and then think of Trump’s supposed foreign policies. Think of his reaction when the Muslim female president of Bangladesh, Sheikh Hasina Wajed, says no to anything. Think about his casual distaste to anyone who’s not white. Think of his ignorance. (”Puerto Ricans are my least favorite kind of Mexicans!”) Think of him having the nuclear codes, and of him being in charge of the world’s biggest economy and the diplomatic relationships of a superpower.

Finally:

Look at this post; it refutes almost all possible complaints about Clinton, with sources.

In the words on the inimitable Krusty the Clown, “You, sir, are an idiot.” and I hope you come to your senses.

the title of civil war is particularly interesting because of this

Steve is probably named for Union General and President Ulysses S. Grant, WHO WON THE CIVIL WAR

However, Grant did have his fault. Ever the idealist (like Steve), he removed any traces of slavery and the Confederacy and tirelessly worked for African-American rights. However, he would often place his friends in high political office, which for that reason, he was tried twice for corruption.

But, the parallels between Grant and Rogers show that they both fought control over their idealized actions, even in the face of a hostile government. Grant and Rogers placed their friends (Bucky) over the “good of the country.”

Tony is supposed to be the government in this scenario, which like Gilded Age politics, is murky and doesn’t have a clear “right and wrong.” This isn’t the Civil War of the Americas that we fully recognize, where history has decided a right and wrong, but the politics of a modern era that are more along the lines of the Republican and Democratic parties, which began to be shaped during Grant’s terms. 

Republicans (Tony) favor big business (Stark Industries), but he also is favoring a government registration act of “dangerous individuals” a la Trump, in his “Muslim registration” act. Tony however is not Trumpian. The Superhero Registration Act (Sokovia Accords) is Republican in nature as several GOP candidates are calling for something like it for Muslims. Stark’s support for the bill is not something to be condemned or something inherently oppressive or Trumpian. The bill is Republican in its nature and it’s a way to insure internal security, while it’s not the best. 

Democrats (Steve) historically favor individual rights and more “honorable” causes. They have been labelled as vigilantes for justice during the Civil Rights movement and again during the Vietnam protests. Steve merely represents, again, another side that has it’s merits and drawbacks, favoring a policy of trust and lack of oversight.

I think that Civil War is going to be a parallel to American foreign policy, not an ode to a clear cut American war.
