Who Will Protect You? || Peter Parker x Reader

{summary: After Peter Parker witnesses a young superhero who goes by the alias Midnight quickly diffuse a hostage situation at the bank, he begins to admire her while searching for her true self.

His search for Midnight’s identity leads him to Hagstrom Academy [1], where he briefly sees a young woman who reminds him of his favorite superhero. Convinced that she is Midnight, he takes a photograph of her and keeps her picture at his desk to always inspire him to do what’s right, no matter how difficult the situation may be.

However, things start to get a little awkward for Peter when his aunt May sees Midnight’s picture on his desk, and she is completely convinced that Midnight is Peter’s girlfriend! Unable to explain the true reasoning behind why he keeps a photograph of her, Peter must find a way to introduce her to his Aunt May…

Could things get any worse for him?}

warnings: none, just a half naked Peter near the end. But it’s nothing too explicit or sexual, really, I promise.

Have you ever talked about how weretiger!arin and the other were-creatures in your au were initially infected? Cuz they wouldn't have been born a were-creature, right? It seems like it would be a big moment in their lives

I had actually thought about this exact thing shortly after this au took off! Whether they were cursed to transform against their will or maybe they had this affliction transferred to them early in their lives I wasnt sure. But the idea of them having to face society and readjust to their previous way of life with this added burden of being so unnatural and different piqued my interest!

(This is actually longer than I expected it to be so im gonna put a readmore okay?)

I just watched Empire of Corses a few hours ago, and OH MY GOD! that movie is awesome, the art is so gorgeous that must be illegal. And I lost my mind every 10 minutes there, I can’t believe how fast I ended with a OTP in that movie.

The plot was amazing, since my english is very limited I am unable to explain how amazing and perfect that movie was.

I was eating a blueberry muffin being perfectly cute and calm and then my rapist sauntered into the room and walked right up behind me and i had to grab my things and run. About everyday he’s violating the title ix orders to stay away from me and i can’t prove it and he must know all this since he’s the patron saint of abuse and torture of all kinds. and he smiles to everyone. and i was the one whose body he stripped and raped repeatedly and brutalized and then threw outside and told not to touch him again. how does it feel to sense that same person approach just a couple feet away? it is a nightmare…and u can’t do anything about it..and in five minutes u wear ur dead eyes to the next class and Carry Out the rest the day unable to explain to anyone how it feels..

Making a mess of the square places we live.

                         This room is not as permanent as it once was.

I lean my head 

   against the plaster walls and the building sways to the left.

                                       Chunks of the ceiling fall when

you tell me you want me closer. I can see the sky now.

Paint peels off

        the walls when I cannot look away from you.

Door frames fall in a heap and we leave them there.

When you have to go,

I keep the door unlocked

             in case you want 

to prove the impermanence of things that close on hinges. 

Look at this mess we make.

What is the purported collateral damage of allowing a Moana-themed birthday party? I read the posts but it I can't find where that part is discussed, though it may have been implicit. It seems rather apparent that this is a rather important matter in the discussion. For instance, if the damage originated from commoditizing Moana, and Moana had lost all of its non-Polynesian viewers, it would have been a decisive flop at the box office, and therefore never created in the first place.

Well the rhetoric of those people is that it supposedly damages Polynesian culture but they are unable and unwilling to explain how. The main sticking point theyre obsessed with is that the persons white niece is not celebrating something thats “white culture” soo idk you tell me their motives lol

F U C K M E. I got so excited for the new update to ALiL that I actually shouted and concerned my friends, and then I ended up curled up in a ball crying, completely unable to explain why. Amazing job with the update, but also it ripped my heart out.

A Lesson in Love (The Confrontation)


So I found this comic that someone else drew awhile back, and was curious how close this is to when Abe first helped you setup your blog?

Well… I wouldn’t say it happened exactly like that, but it’s probably more accurate than I’d care to admit. Abe’s currently laughing so hysterically at this, that I fear he may hurt himself. Incidentally, a follower did explain to me what “URL” stands for, but they were unable to explain to me what “universal resource locator” actually means.

Aquarius Sun and Gemini Moon Confession, submitted by a follower

My mind feels like a battle ground. There’s a large part that desires to be more emotionally open. I want to shout from the rooftops how much I love someone; I want to let my ambitions soar and follow my heart. No matter how strong these desires are, though, I am held back by the analytical part of me. The part that says emotions are dangerous, they are weaknesses. Everyday is an internal war. No matter how hard I try, I can’t seem to find a comprise. I am so extremely nervous to do anything but so confident to do everything. I am so outgoing yet so closed off from people. I’m scatterbrained, unable to explain things or tell stories logically. [info on sun and moon signs]

I thought last nights episodes was amazing. It is not often that I find myself unable to explain how I am feeling and that is how I felt after the episode! It is important for Jack to perform his duties and the emotion between Jack and Elizabeth was absolutely spot on. I also love how Rosemary's character is showing this season how kind and compassionate she is - her character growth in this series has been amazing.

Rosemary was the only one of Elizabeth’s “friends” to actually confront Mr. Stoneman and sort of make a fuss about the issue.  Florence and Dottie brought cookies.  Super helpful… not.  There were a lot of people being supportive but Rosemary at least put in some effort to let her voice be heard even if it didn’t do any good. 

Others stepped up eventually too but I really liked how active Rosemary was with baking the pie and everything else.  She gets a lot of hate about her personality sometimes but Rosemary really is a wonderful person who cares about people.

official-sebastianstan replied to your post “narratives about fathers being their daughter’s lover/husband aren’t…”

Like seriously that “fathers are a little girl’s prince” crap has always made me uncomfortable and I’ve always chalked it up to my shitty childhood and been unable to explain exactly why it’s so fucking creepy

Yeah that shit is just creepy. It’s something that our society has normalized SO MUCH that inspecting it seems ‘crazy’ but once you think about it there’s just no way to rationalize it. It’s super gross. Like at best the ‘daddy’s little princess’ thing is just possessive, but at least assumes in part that the daddy in that case would be the king. It’s still gross for reasons but when you start saying ‘daddy is my prince charming’ it completely puts the father in the place of the person the girl is ‘supposed’ to consummately fall in love with and like…

that’s pedophilia and incest. 

I think, too, that there’s some suspect grooming in place because I feel like there’s a reason it’s very rarely focused on that prince+princess ends up = king+queen as a married couple. By divorcing the very adult result of these unions girls are groomed to see the roles as un-adult fantasies with no resulting consequences or outcomes (i.e. marriage, childbearing, adulthood) and can be trained to respond positively to such ‘play’ notions and mold themselves to suit them. It creates a mind that simply is not ever told that ‘princes and princesses who fall in love become husband and wife’ or simply creates a situation that capitalizes on the childhood innocence that leads kids to say things like they want to marry their mom/dad/sibling because no one will tell them the adult (and I mean adult, not expressly sexual but specifically not appropriate for children) nature of marriage.

Why would they avoid that, and who does it suit?

A good question to ask.


You’re left feeling it…
That slow, cold and lonely;
that fog of unknowing.
In joy, pain, love and loathing
Unable to contain or explain
this galloping beast of emotion.
It spreads covering in a
thick solvent.
“Don’t inhale, open window…circulation”
Is what you would read on the label
Could you bottle and contain
This thing; vague and unnamed.



Sleepless Nights

Dedicated to: @staycute1234 for helping me get on the Taegi train. Merry Christmas!


When he shot open his eyes, the room was still dark and the sound Hoseok’s heavy breathing mixed with his own was the only thing that echoed through the air. For a moment, he clutched the sheets, unsure whether or not it was all over. But seconds turned to minutes and it was obvious, the dream was over. 

Taehyung has been having nightmares for months. They’d started off small, only happening every other week or so and only bad enough to give him a light jolt out of sleep. But now, they happened every day and almost consistently tore him out of sleep multiple times a night. He hadn’t mentioned it to the other members, because he knew he’d be unable to explain the entire thing. By the time he woke up, he didn’t quite remember what had scared him, only that it had been perpetually terrifying. 

Careful not to make too much noise and wake Hoseok, Tae gathered himself and headed towards the kitchen for yet another bottle of water. The clock on the wall read 3:00am and everyone had only gone to sleep only three hours prior. He’d been up about three times so far that night; three nightmares in three hours. He was certain that this time he would just stay awake until the other members rose in the morning. Then he’d have the noonas apply extra makeup under his eyes to make him seem awake before anyone could notice. Once he had decided on his next moves, he reached into the fridge for the bottle of water, leaned against the counter, and huffed quietly. 

“Yah, Taehyung. What are you doing up again?” Taehyung turned quickly, catching sight of the mint-haired male rubbing his eyes tiredly.

“Oh,” he forced his signature box smile. “I just couldn’t sleep, that’s all. You can go back to bed, hyung, I’m fine.”

Yoongi lifted his eyes, tilting his head to the side slightly. “Why ya lying to me, Tae?" 

"I’m not lying hyung.” The last thing Taehyung wanted to do was worry the other members. But the concern in Yoongi’s voice made him feel a bit better. It was nice knowing he cared. 

Yoongi took a few steps forward, getting as close as he could to Tae without making their height difference too significant. His eyes were still low, heavy from sleep, and his cheeks were stained pink. He looks really cute when he first wakes up, Taehyung caught himself thinking. It was involuntary but he was really fascinated with this new view of Yoongi. It was different than the one he was used to seeing.

“Well then why have you been up, sometimes five times a night, everyday for the last week?”

For the first time, Taehyung felt himself struggling to keep his composure. He didn’t know that he’d been loud enough to wake Yoongi up all those nights, and he began to worry if he’d waken the other members as well. Worry swam around his mind as he took a swig of the water bottle, trying to keep from making eye contact with his hyung. 

“Just nervous for the comeback that’s all. I’ve been catching on sleep in the middle of the day though, no worries. I’ll be heading back to bed now.” He turned and began to quickly walk away, water bottle in hand, when a small hand wrapped around his wrist.

“Why didn’t you tell someone you were having nightmares?” Yoongi’s words were low and laced with concern. When Taehyung turned around, he was shocked by the sad look in the older male’s eyes. 



Yoongi was now the one walking, his hand still wrapped around Taehyung’s wrist. They arrived at the door to Yoongi’s room and, before he could resist, the younger boy was being pulled into the bedroom and onto a mattress. Yoongi grabbed the bottle of water and placed it on the floor beside them before wrapping his arms around the younger boy and pulling the covers around them. Taehyung felt his cheeks heat up as he involuntarily snuggled back into his hyung, feeling safer than he had in months.

“You can come over here whenever you have a nightmare.” Yoongi’s words were soft and deep as he spoke into the back of Taehyung’s neck. “You don’t have to worry about waking me. Just slide in." 

Taehyung was so surprised he could barely speak. Yoongi had always watched out for him and cared for him, but he’d never heard his voice so sweet and comforting. It was in stiff contrast with his usual demeanor, but Tae was beginning to like it. All he could manage to say was a short, "Okay, hyung.”

Then, though brief and barely noticeable, Tae felt a soft kiss on the back of his neck right before Yoongi’s body became heavy behind him. Warmth spread through his body as he fell into his own soft slumber.
He didn’t have anymore nightmares that night.

Hey, thanks for all the love you've been showing my blog! I want to get a good look at your blog, but am unable to. Would you please explain to me why your blog (and many other blogs) only open in a right panel of the main window? Unlike my blog, a person can't go directly to your blog and view your archive page, for instance. This is how I love to quickly get a sense of what content on a blog I enjoy.

hey, thanks for the message. i’ve noticed that about my blog and others, too…only opening in a right panel.  i wish i knew what to do to fix that. It wasn’t always that way. i also like to be able to see the archive. :( anyone know how i can change that?
