up at the book store

I went to this book store and their books were wrapped up in paper with small descriptions so no one would “judge a book by its cover”

DEFENDERS!  A humble pitch!

Readers and retailers!  We will be doing some serious press in a couple of weeks but as you will start placing your orders soon and I wanted to give you the hard sell on DEFENDERS. 

This is a book we are very excited about. For those you don’t know we are  launching an all new DEFENDERS in June. It is all new material written by myself and drawn by my iron Man and Civil War collaborators @davidmarquez and the amazing @jpocolors

 my history with these characters is, let’s say, pronounced. First of all, some of you know that I’m one of the creators of Jessica Jones. Doesn’t get more intimate than that.

The second season of the show is filming now. Since her TV debut she has become a worldwide media sensation. It still stuns me to this day. 

For those who have not been reading the new Jessica Jones series, things are very different for her and Luke. Their relationship will be the cornerstone of Defenders just as it was sometimes back in New Avengers.

In fact, let’s talk about NEW AVENGERS. where i staked my reputation and put Luke Cage right front and center

 if there was a major marvel event, I tried to make sure Mr. Cage, for the first time in his long history, had something to say about it

CIVIL WAR 1

SECRET INVASION

Plus, I was writing Alias, Daredevil and two Avengers books simultaneously and it created a situation where I could develop the relationship between Jessica Jones and Luke Cage into something very real…

And I love Daredevil so much. I have missed writing him. 

And returning to the character under this decidedly different scenario has been very fulfilling creatively.

When I was writing all these characters previously, I initially steered clear of Iron Fist because he was being written by two really good friends of mine Matt Fraction and Ed Brubaker in the seminal run with David Aja.

 but once he became available…

 we even found a cool way to connect the iron fist saga to the Phoenix saga

we introduced the white costume which is the best costume! 

when I was done with avengers I was already preparing this book.  I was.  I pitched it publicly in on my last page…

and then something happened…

They all became big ass tv stars!

And all those who spent the aughts MOCKING me for a Luke cage ‘crush’… were silenced!! as I was proven right!! again! :-)

And now finally the stars align for us to make this very special new book. Our goal is to create a brand-new, very dangerous, very exciting tapestry for the  street-level comics. All of which will be centered around these four amazing characters but almost every single character you can think of that would fit in the mean streets of marvel will feature in this book. 

They will be threatened by new players, new threats, old scores, and new rules.

 issue three? The punisher

 here is an exclusive look at some of issue number one, two, and the ALL NEW free comic book day story that sets everything up in the Guardians FCBD issue available at all participating comic book stores all over the country on free comic book day May 5

 these are not in any sequential order, but check this out…

That’s my pitch! People always ask me what they can do to support their favorite comics… go to your local store and preorder. 

That means the store will set one aside for you and that means we will set one aside for the store.

 See you for free comic book day they where many of you are going to be shocked by what you find in that story… and then just a couple weeks later defenders number one and the all-new chapter for these characters that you and I love so much

bonus item, the Neal Adams. Cover for number one

remember that time comics legend Neal Adams drew Jessica Jones? :)

  • Me, who has never read Ava's Demon: why do these people have storage rooms in their torsos
BTS when they are accidentally turned on by you

Seokjin

Everyone has that one spot that instantly puts you in the mood. It is a normal thing and causes a normal reaction. Right? Right. But the timing of said normal reaction… well that is not so good. When you two were at the dorm with the rest of the guys and you were all laughing having a great time. You two are sitting on the couch with his arm around your waist, you scoot a little close so you can lay your head on his shoulder wrapping an arm around his waist too. The problem is that when you rested your hand on Seokjin’s hip he could feel it through the thin material of his pants and the dip of his hip bone was that spot. He instantly became turned on and he had to quickly dismiss himself from the others and hid in the kitchen while he attempted to get a hold of himself.

“Okay think of something else Seokjin. Something else other than those warm hands on you… Moving…. Caressing… Crap. Okay that is not helping…” *continues to mutter to himself*

Yoongi

As a musician it is expected for him to have sensitive hearing. He needs to be able to pick out certain notes, rhythms, or even sometimes both to be able to do his job properly. What is not expected is for him to have sensitive ears. But he does and that is something he has managed to keep from you most of the time you two were dating because if you knew this you would use this knowledge for evil. You would most certainly try to turn him on in the worst places possible. But fate seems to enjoy making Yoongi uncomfortable 99% of the time because you two were at the music store when leaned up to whisper in his ear that you needed to slip way to the bathroom. The second your mouth touched the shell of his ear a shudder went through him and holy shit he went from 0 to 100 really damn quick. He barely manged to nod at you trying to move his hips away from you because he did NOT want you to know what you just did to him. He watched you leave for the bathroom and quickly moved to purchases the first thing he saw and used the bag to hide his… problem when you came back.

Hoseok

Hobi is so extra when he is with the boys but normally he is more calm and low key when he is with you. He says it is because he is the “mood maker” of the group so he tries to always keep the mood up so it is a relief when he is with you. Not saying that he can’t relax with the boys but it is a different type of relaxing when he is with you. He feels he can be calmer more sedate in his reactions. This being said, because he uses being extra so much as a response to something with the group that he tends to do the same thing in other situations. Especially when he is embarrassed. Which is exactly happened one day when you two were grocery shopping and you bent down in front of him to get something from the bottom shelf. This wouldn’t of normally caused the… reaction that it did right then but he had a busy schedule the past month and it hadn’t left much time for you to be together. So when your ass rubbed against his groin when you bent down the reaction was pretty instantaneous. He was so embarrassed by himself because he knew you didn’t mean to do it that he started doing an impromptu dance in the middle of the isle ending with an adorable ayego.

Namjoon

You normally did not often do to much to bring attention to yourself especially in public. Namjoon loved that about you because that makes you you and it also means he can keep you to himself. This is why it is obvious when you two were on the subway you did not mean to press yourself almost completely against him when the train jerked to a stop for more passengers. You were so pushed against him that you were practically one person. This was not good because Namjoon generally didn’t get to feel you this close unless you two were having sex. Which is exactly what came to his mind and he instantly became turned on. Because the crowded subway car became even more crowded unfortunately you were not able to step back. In fact it was so crowed that you both were pressed backwards until Namjoon’s back was against the closed doors and you were STILL pressed against him. It was impossible for you not to feel him and this proved to be correct because your eyes widened and a blush flooded your face. He blushed too but in all honestly he was mostly angry at himself for not having better control over himself.

Jimin

You and Jimin were on your first date in 3 months because of his recent comeback and tour. It had been so long since you two had even seen each other let alone spent any time together. So to say he could easily be worked up was an understatement. Here you two are at your favorite little restaurant that was almost hidden from the rest of the world because the entrance was found in an alley. They had the best food and the atmosphere was perfectly romantic. To celebrate seeing each other after so long you two splurged and got a slice of chocolate cake to share. The cake was decedent three layers with whipped cream frosting. You were loving the cake especially the whipped cream. Under normal circumstances the sight of you eating this would not get him riled up. But come on three months is a long time and it didn’t help that at very moment you decided to wipe up a bit of the cream with your finger and lick it off. Jimin quickly excused himself and nearly ran to the bathroom and locked himself in one of the stalls trying to calm himself down.

Taehyung

Taehyung was normally the one to initiate PDA. It is most of the time in the form of an arm around the waist or a hand on the small of your back which is fine because you enjoy the comfort of his presence. You two were walking hand in hand through the mall when you spot he book store and your eyes light up. He gives a loud fake groan when he sees the look on your face and allows you to drag him to the store. He honestly didn’t mind it though because the kids section often has puzzles and toys to amuse himself with while you go drool over books. He had found a particularly interesting puzzle that he was trying to figure out when a pair of arms came around his waist and your front pressed to his back. He jumped nearly a foot into the air when he felt your arms and relaxed as soon as he realized it was you. The relaxing went away though because when he had jumped it caused his shirt to ride up meaning your hands rested directly on his stomach which is very sensitive. His body began responding to the sensations that was flooding his system. He tried to call out things to distract you and hopefully cause you to pull away, (he loved back hugs and he didn’t want to risk you not giving him another one if he pulls away to quickly) Unfortunately what he was calling out were things that were distracting to HIM not you.

Jungkook

Jungkook loved spending time with you and in his opinion there were not enough hours in the day for him to spend. Because of that he tries to convince you to go with anywhere he goes which works out for most of the places because it is something you like to go to as well. However that did not extend to the gym because you absolutely did not enjoy the gym. But Jungkook is nothing if not convincing so one day he finally manages to break through and you agree to go. You both start out lightly (especially you since you don’t normally work out) and eventually move on to more physically demanding things. It wasn’t until halfway through your workout that Jungkook realized his mistake in having you join him in the gym. Because what normally happens in the gym? People are there in clothing that allows them to not over heat which is most of the time skin tight pants and either shirtless or very little clothing over the torso. This combined with the sweat you were working up soon resulted in your clothes sticking to your body outlining the delicious sight that he normally doesn’t see unless you two were in bed. He felt himself starting to get turned on by the sight of you quickly decided that he was done for the day because he could very well do something like drag you into a supply closet. He tells you that he is ready to leave and asks you if you could go ahead and finish what you are doing then go hit the showers and change so you both can go home. it wouldn’t do to leave you there because that means other people could see you still Without waiting for a response from you he quickly leaves for the locker rooms and takes the coldest shower he could possibly manage.

FEBRUARY 7: The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2012)

On this day in 2012, The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth first hit shelves. Although this was only five years ago and may not seem like some hidden gem of lesbian history, almost every college-aged gay girl I’ve talked to about Cameron Post has not only known who she is, but has reacted with some kind of anguished face or hand over their heart at the mere mention of her name. For this reason, I knew it had to be included in 365 Days of Lesbians.

What makes The Miseducation of Cameron Post so iconic? I’ve seen it described in article headlines as everything from a “Cowgirl Coming Out Story!” to a harrowing tale on the experiences of gay conversion therapy. The truth of the matter is that it is all of these things and more; the book tells the story of a girl growing up in the rural, Christ and pasture-driven town of Miles City, Montana. After her parents die unexpectedly in a car accident, Cameron becomes the ward of her conservative grandmother and Aunt Ruth. Throughout the course of the novel, Cameron develops a crush on her best friend and must deal with the unaccepting reactions of both her family and her small town after she is outed. Yes, there are elements of the ~cowgirl aesthetic~ and the book does take you through Cameron’s heart-wrenching experience of a gay conversion camp, but The Miseducation of Cameron Post is neither a dime store novel of lesbian cowgirl romance nor a soul-crushing tragedy. It’s a coming-of-age novel filled with just as much wonder and grief as anyone’s teenage years.

When I first read this book, I was on the eve of my sixteenth birthday and in the middle of a long summer spent bored and sunburned at my grandparents’ house. There were moments in the book of Cameron experiencing internalized homophobia and compulsory heterosexuality and all those other academic words that were scarily relatable to me, as I assume is the case for all the other girls who hold this book near and dear to their heart; however, there are two particular scenes that live distinctly in my memory – one, a passage where Danforth describes Cameron riding her bike on a hot summer day to her local movie rental store (hello 1990s), and the other, a moment where Cameron is riding in a car with the window down and making waves in the wind with her hand. This is the most iconic thing about Cameron Post. I had heard about internalized homophobia and conversion therapy from news outlets and the internet, but never before had these concepts been living and breathing and walking around inside a girl so similar to myself. This wasn’t Girl Discovers She’s Gay: The Novel, which, although those stories have their place, I would have been too scared to pick up in the book store anyways; Cameron rides her bike on summer days, hangs her head outside of car windows on the highway, and gets crushes on girls – these are all just facets of who she is as a person. There is nothing flat or contrived about Cameron’s experience or character; she is a full person who you root for, grieve for, and love throughout the entirety of the novel, and the more years that pass by, the more I’m able to understand just how much these depictions are needed and why The Miseducation of Cameron Post is just one of those books that has come to define a whole generation of lgbtq youth.

Wanted (Cat Hybrid AU Woozi)

Type: Fluff

Request: Hybrid! Cat woozi?


“Are you sure he’s the one you want?” the lady asks as you tell her the name of the hybrid you picked. This day in age everyone wanted a hybrid whether it was a puppy, a cat, a bird, fish, etc. They were kept locked away like regular pets which you found very wrong but you couldn’t change it. Today you wanted to take home one that no one ever seems to want at work. The grumpy hybrid named Jihoon. He wasn’t rude or anything, he just didn’t like socializing or trying to fake to be adopted. So people instantly labeled him as an unwanted hybrid. “He’s not that bad” you insist as you signed the papers. “No one wanted him. I don’t know why. He’s so sweet. It’s not fair to not be picked for being too old or not cute enough. I think they’re great and deserve a shot” you say as you handed her the paper. She quickly stamped it and handed it back to you. You gave her a smile heading into the back.

You opened one of the doors to a room where a few of them were and smiled. “Jihoon” you say as he looked up “you’re kidding someone wants him?” the one beside him whined making Jihoon look down. “Yeah. Someone does” you respond rudely as you stuck your hand out for Jihoon and he nervously took it. “Who wants me?” he asks shyly. “I do” you told him as he looked at you in shock. “I like you Jihoon. Even if others think badly of you. I think you’re worth it” you tell him as he looks down with a blush.

~

“I know it’s not much” you state as you two look around your very decent apartment. You made good money working there so you could have a decent life for the most part. Jihoon nervously stepped in “this isn’t a joke right?” he asks as you shake your head no. He smiled before he wrapped his arms around you. You instantly hugged him back stroking his soft hair “this is your home now as well” you him as he pulls back. “Thank you” he says as you guide him in more.

~

You woke up the next morning you awoke to see Jihoon sleeping peacefully on your bed. He liked the bed much more than his old to the point he quickly fell asleep. You smiled as you reached over touching his soft cat ears and began rubbing it. He let out a soft moan as he never felt the sensation before. As soon as his eyes opened he seemed to melt into your hand more. His head turned as he let your fingers dig more “I’m glad you like it” you coo as he smiles. “What do you want to eat?” you ask him as he looked confused. “There’s more than just the hard food we give” you promise as he sits up. “Like what?” he asked as you got up. “So I planned a good day to take you exploring” you say as you open one of the doors in your room. You put pants, a long baggy tshirt, boxers, and socks out for him. “These are actually hybrid wear” you tell him as he looked at it amazed “this stuff doesn’t look cheap” he says as you shrug"I’m not the only being I have to worry about now” you tell him as you got to your closet and pull a jacket out. “Get ready” you tell him before pointing to the door connected to your room. “The bathroom is right there. Shower, there’s shampoo and everything there for you to use” you say as he nods.

~

You were amazed that he didn’t come out smelling like the mens products you bought. He smelled like cherry blossoms as he told you it smelled much better to him. You shrugged it off and allowed him to do as he wanted to be happy. As of now you were very much enjoying the look of curiosity your new friend had. His hand clutched yours tightly as you pulled him along. “This is what I think you would like” you say buying an order of cooked fish from a stall. He took it from you and took a deep breath before he took a bite. You watched he smiled eating another and another. He ate it so fast you worried he’d get the hiccups but you simply grabbed a napkin and wiped his mouth off. Then his fingers. “We’ll buy some fish from the market then” you say relinking your fingers with his.

~

He looked at a magazine cover in shock as he saw the hybrid on it “it’s Jeonghan” he comments as you look at it. “His owners thought he was just so pretty they made him model for companies” you tell him as he makes a sound. “I don’t have to do that right?” he asks as you shook your head no. “Good” he says as you handed him a bag that contained fish and other things. “Your old friend lives here” you say as you knock on the window of the book store and a head peaks up from behind the desk as Jihoon smiles rushing in without second thought. The two males smiled at each other before they hugged. Wonwoo happened to be the other stone faced male that no one would adopt until you showed a picture to your friend who instantly wanted him. “Hey Y/N” you hear as Mingyu came out from the back.

~

You guys sat across from the the two hybrids at a small restaurant you and Mingyu frequented when you were bored as they caught up with everything. They talked about what they have gotten to experience from the real world so far. Jihoon mainly about fish and your soft bed and Wonwoo went on about the smell of old books and sleeping by the window as the sun shined down on him. “So the grumpest of cats got homes?” Mingyu asked as you smiled “they aren’t bad hybrids. Most people just don’t want to look past the actual appearance” you tell him as food was brought out. “This for you guys” Mingyu says as the two males were about to dig in “but eat slow and share” he finished as they nodded picking up pieces of fish and other meats.

“What’s that?” Jihoon asked as he watched you pick up a piece of meat from your noodles “chicken” you say as you saw the light in his eyes. You smiled as you leaned over the table offering it to him. He quickly took it and groaned as you giggled. “Here” you say passing him the bowl. He looked shocked “what will you eat?” he asked “I’ll order something don’t worry” you promised leaning on your hands as he smiled picking up his fork and dug in. “You’re going to baby him” Mingyu hummed as you shrugged. “He needs love and I’ll give it to him” you respond as Jihoon took a sip from his water before continuing to eat. He would have a smile here and there as he enjoyed being able to experience things he was told by others he would never have. Now those teasers were still waiting to be adopted while he got to live in the real world.

9 Practical Tips for New Witches

1.  Write down a list of your current passions, interests, goals, and beliefs.  Knowing this information can help you to develop your witchcraft and to make it more personal.  It’s important to feel a deep connection to your own style of craft, so it is incredibly helpful to incorporate the things that you love in life. While it’s a good idea to think of and list serious things, it’s 100% okay if your list mostly contains entries like ‘shiny things, stuff that smells good, My Chemical Romance’; you should definitely add entries like that, because that right there still tells you that you’ll probably enjoy using reflective objects, aromatherapy, and music in your witchcraft.  The entries on your list can help you to creatively think of ways to make your magick yours, while still helping you to identify any pre-existing styles and paths of witchcraft that incorporate elements of your list.

2.  Keep a regular journal, along with any magick journals that you might have.  Keep track of your health, your dreams, your moods, your habits, your life in general. When you are first starting out, it can be difficult to automatically see how magick affects you.  By keeping a mundane, regular journal, you’re better able to reference past events against your magick journals, to see if any changes or unusual entries (negative or positive) occurred at the same time as something witchcraft-related.

3.  Sign up for as many guided nature walks and talks as you can.  It’s always a good idea to know the nature around you, especially if you’re a witch. Guided walks and talks can give you first-hand experience when it comes to identifying plants, animals, and other things that you can find in your area. If it is allowed, remember to bring along a camera and / or a notebook so that you can record and reference your new knowledge afterwards.

4.  Take an interest in cooking.  This is an especially good tip for any witches that are looking to hide their witchcraft.  Learning to cook is a life skill, and doesn’t tend to draw unwanted attention.  The food, herbs, and spices that you use all have their own magickal correspondences and associations, so it really comes down to figuring out some ingredients that match your magick’s intent, and then finding an actual recipe that calls for those ingredients.  

5.  Start your own garden, no matter how small. Seeds can be affordable purchased at most stores with gardening centers, and you can grow some herbs in a leftover tin can.  Really, you don’t need a lot of space or cash to be able to start some sort of garden, whether indoors or outdoors.  Just make sure that wherever you are planting, you have permission to plant there!

6.  Develop your DIY skills.  Crafting, sewing, upcycling – spend some time learning about the ‘Do It Yourself’ culture.  Aside from being an excellent way to learn how to create your own tools and witchy stuff, a lot of the skills that you will learn can be incorporated into your spells.  So can any supplies that you have on hand for regular arts and crafts, for that matter. And when you get right down to it, nobody has to know that your handmade lavender lip-balm is actually an enchanted item and a dual healing / beauty spell.  Making anything by hand helps to give it power, and can be another great way to practice witchcraft under-the-radar; unless you literally announce that your felt-and-an-old-sock plushie is actually a poppet, how can anybody know?

7.  Find places to source your witchy ingredients and supplies. Look up and scout out any local:

o   Book stores

o   Box stores (like Walmart, Target)

o   Craft stores

o   Dollar stores

o   Farm stands

o   Farmer’s markets

o   Flea markets

o   Garden stores / Nurseries

o   Libraries

o   Hiking trails

o   Metaphysical / New Age stores

o   Rockhounding locations

o   Tea / herb stores

o   Thrift stores

o   Rock / crystal / mineral shops

8.  Build a non-fiction library.  Cookbooks, how-to books, field guides, books that teach you skills. History books, scientific magazines and journals, textbooks on any topic.  Read about first-hand accounts, theories and practices, facts and trivia. Read educational books meant for kids, and encyclopedias meant for months of study.  Don’t be afraid to check your material against a different source, either.  Finding multiple sources citing a piece of knowledge is a good habit to develop, especially if your knowledge deals with the safety or danger of anything.  Whether it was posted online or published in a book, make sure that the author’s information is accurate!

9.  Collect and upcycle bottles, jars, tins, and other storage.  It’s a running joke here on Tumbler: ‘witches love jars’. But wow is it an accurate joke.  There have been a couple of times that I’ve come home with new loose supplies like shells or acorns, only to stand there and realize that literally all of my other storage is taken and that unless I want to stick them in a plastic bag, I have to temporarily store them by taking the last few Piroutte cookies out of the tin and giving it a quick cleaning (and now you know the exact moment that I thought of posting about this tip! lol).  Practicing witchcraft can be a really quick way to turn into a self-powered miniature recycling plant; it’s a lot cheaper to clean that jelly jar than it is to go buy an actual Mason jar, and it’s usually better for the environment as well ^_^

__________

You don’t go to Hogwarts- or at least you didn’t. Your parents were transferring you over the summer, because the success rates after graduating were higher there, or something like that. All you knew was that you were being forced to leave the school you’d grown up in for a majority of your life for a different one, where you knew all of no one, which was very intimidating.

Not that that was what you wanted to think of while you were book shopping for this new school. You were in the middle of picking up one of the books you needed, when your name is called across the store. You nearly drop the book in surprise, glancing in the direction of the voice, taking in Molly Weasley coming towards you. 

“Oh, hi Mrs. Weasley.” you greet when she’s in earshot. She’s friends with your mom, so you’d seen her around a bit.

“Y/N, hi! Your mom said you’re transferring to Hogwarts?”

“I am, yeah.”

“That’s great! All of my children go there, so you won’t have to worry about making friends- speaking of which, have you met my son George?”

“I have not met your son George,” you laugh, meeting eyes with a somewhat embarrassed looking guy your age. 

“Well, I’ll just leave you two to it then.” she responds, shooting a not so subtle wink at George, which doesn’t make him look any less embarrassed. She walks over to a different redheaded boy, which you assume is one of her other sons, and pretends not to watch the interaction. 

There’s a pause of silence, and after a minute the tall boy fills it. “I’d be her son George.” he chuckles, a little flushed.

“I assumed,” you arch an eyebrow, smiling to show that you were teasing. 

“What a rude thing to do.” he pretends to look offended. “I could’ve been any of her sons- she has six of them, you know.”

“Can’t say that I knew that, actually. But I’ll be more careful next time.” You can’t help but giggle at him. 

“As you should be,” he grins, the tension between you successfully melted. “Now have you found the fourth book on the list? Because I haven’t, and I’d ask one of my brothers, but I’m the smartest you see, so if I can’t find it then there’s no hope for any of us.”

“I’m sure that’s true,” you play along. “But that book is on the first table you see when you come in.”

“Pfft, of course it is. I was just testing your knowledge.” he informs you. “You passed.”

You end up doing the rest of your shopping with the Weasleys, mainly George as he splits the two of you away from the group for a majority of the shopping. “What’s your biggest pet peeve?”

“My biggest pet peeve?” his brow wrinkles in confusion. 

“Yeah.” you laugh at his expression. “Like, what really annoys you?”

“Oh, I dunno. I don’t like it when people call each other by their last names.”

“That’s weird.” you inform him, which he only rolls his eyes in response of. 

“Okay, then what’s yours?”

“I don’t know. I don’t like wet socks.”

“What?”

“Y’know, like when you step in a wet patch while you’re in socks- that’s like one of the worst feelings ever.”

He just scoffs. “And that’s not weird?”

“No- who likes wearing wet socks? Literally no one. It’s weird if that’s not one of your pet peeves.”

“I think you’re a little biased.”

“I am not.”

“Whatever you say.” he hums, opening the door to the tea shop that you’d agreed to meet the rest of his family at. 

You about to wit something back when Mrs. Weasley spots you, and ushers you over to the table she was sitting at. “I’m not sure where the others are,” she informs the two of you. “I think they said something about Borgin and Burkes- George, would you go get us some waters?”

“Sure.” he gestures for you to take the seat across from his mother, smiling at you before heading towards the front. 

“Good looking boy, isn’t he?” she tuts, smiling expectantly at you. 

“Huh?” is all you can let out, a flush taking over your face as you process her words. 

“Georgie! He’s quite the looker.”

“Oh, um, yeah. I guess.” you stutter out, hoping your blush isn’t as visible as you know it is. 

“Girls always have liked him- can’t say he’s always liked them though. But he’s seemed quite interested in you today. Don’t reckon he’ll ever hear the end of it from Fred.” 

“Oh,” you let out, wondering what could possibly be taking George this long. 

“You do seem quite interested in him as well- and you’d just make the most beautiful children-”

“Mind if I join you?” George cuts in, seemingly unaware of the conversation he’d just interrupted as he sets your water in front of you, placing the others on the table. 

“Sure, Georgie, you can take my spot.” Mrs. Weasley gets up, her wink directed at you now as she takes her water from the table. “Y/N and I were just talking about how handsome you are.” she informs him, you nearly choking on the sip of water you’d just taken. Mrs. Weasley looks highly amused as she wanders towards the exit, clearly quite proud of herself. 

“Really?” George slides into the spot next to you, turning to you and bouncing his eyebrows. 

“I’m not sure I used those exact words.” you glance over at him, taking in the smirk on his face. “Stop it.”

“Stop what?” he teases, the smirk still resting on his face. 

You scoff at him, tempted to stick your tongue out. “Smirking at me like that, Weasley.”

“Like what, Y/N?” he challenges, ignoring your attempt at annoying him. 

You hold eye contact for a moment,daring each other to speak first. “…Stop it!” you burst finally, nearly pushing him off the bench with a shove that was meant to be playful. You burst out laughing at the expression on his face, which makes him laugh, and then you’re causing a lot more noise than you probably should be saying as you were in a shop. 

He looks at you then, with a tenderness that makes your cheeks flush. “What?”

“Nothing,” he tucks a piece of hair behind your ear, cautiously. “I mean, I was going to ask you, but then I realized how stupid that’d be.”

“That wouldn’t be stupid!” you clear your throat at the eagerness in your voice. “Um, I mean why would that be stupid?”

He tries to keep a straight face, but laughs at your response, shaking his head. “I don’t know. Maybe it wouldn’t be. I just didn’t think you were interested is all.”

You stare at him expectantly, rolling your eyes when he doesn’t continue. “Is there something you’d like to ask me?” you hint, making him grin again. 

“Would you like to go out with me, Y/N?”

“No.” you watch his mouth drop open and giggle. “I’m just kidding, George. Of course I would- but that’ll show you for being over confident you wang.”

He rolls his eyes at you. “What’s a wang?”

“You. You’re a wang.”

“Really? So if I look up wang in the dictionary there will be a picture of me?”

“Exactly.”

“No I don’t think so- in fact I happen to have bought a new dictionary today- thanks for that, by the way- so I think I’ll just test that theory, if that’s okay with you.”

“You’re just full of tests aren’t you?”

“Says the one who thought rejecting me was just the funniest thing in the world.”

“It was! You should’ve seen your face.”

“No, I don’t think I should have- mostly because that’s impossible. Which I know because I’m the smartest Weasley.”

“Yes, I think I’ve heard that before.”

(just like endless banter until it’s time for you to go, and George kisses you goodbye, which leaves you very excited to see him again when school starts)
