(I am sad and write of sad things. Everyone will be all right in the end, I’m sure, but, Harris, you can’t run from your past forever.)
“Let’s eat peanut butter cups for dinner.”
Harris shifted the bag of groceries in his arms. “Was that your plan all along?”
Darcy nodded. “Yes.”
“Then why did we go grocery shopping?”
“I was luring you into a false sense of security, nutritionally speaking.” She did a little spin, enjoying the way her skirt flared around her knees. The bags in her hands bumped against her legs as she stopped, facing him. “It was my devious plan.”
He grinned at her, his cheeks pink from the spring breeze. “With chicken breasts and frozen vegetables?”
“You didn’t suspect a thing,” Darcy pointed out. She threw her hands in the air. Harris ducked under her bags without missing a step. “My plan was a success!”
“We’re not eating peanut butter cups for dinner,” Harris said. But he was smiling when he said it.
“Maybe you’re not, but you’re not the boss of me, soooooooo…” She tipped her head in his direction. “Make me a better offer.”
“I don’t know,” he mused. “I mean, we could try eating real food and not spending the rest of the night curled up in the fetal position, praying for death as the sugar rush wears off.”
He had a pronounced cowlick right now. It was adorable. Darcy shifted both of her bags to one hand and reached out with the other. “You make it sound like a bad plan.”
Look guys it’s been a month since I updated Off The Rails you’d
think I’d have come up with a better joke than “akaashi’s inner monologue upon
meeting Bokuto’s new college friends involves self-inserting into the ouran
high school host club opening sequence” but here we are
I firmly believe though that akaashi’s inner monologue is a)
loud and b) hyperbolic, because how else do they stay so calm on the outside
STAR WARS is really good for time travel fic, the urge to give the characters a chance to fix things, now that they have an idea of what went wrong or what to look out for, while still having to relive so many painful things, that balance of suffering and yet it’s worth it for the hope it offers, it’s exactly what the best fic is made of. I LOVE TIME TRAVEL FIC SO MUCH, so I’ve collected together a bunch of my favorites!

A Farewell to Bobby Moynihan - Favorite Weekend Update Characters
Thank you Bobby, for gracing our television screens with hilarious characters and impressions on Update since you joined the SNL cast in Season 34. Your imaginative creations like Anthony Crispino, Riblet, and Drunk Uncle along with over-the-top impressions of Snooki and Guy Fieri will be sorely missed.
AN: Here we go again! This Easter I am bringing some updates to all your favorite stories! And some new starts, starting with part one of Damian’s soul-mark series. I hope you enjoy it!
Prompt that inspired this: Older!Damian imagine!(Like 18-20) Reader is a princess from a made up country and her dad is close w Bruce so WE hosts a huge celebration for her bday.But the party gets attacked or something and she’s forced to go into hiding w the Waynes and her parents are sent somewhere else. During her stay she & Dami really connect.W fluff and a beautiful bday gown the whole 9 yards! Im sorry this is so long but I’ve been thinking about it for a while(Maybe even a series or even the parents as ex-heroes?
“Enjoying the party, princess?”
Your eyes slide to the man next to you. He’s taller than you, and a carbon copy of his father. He’s all dark hair, blue eyes, and olive skin. Three women had already swooned in his presence, but not you. You know better, you know exactly how dangerous it is to fall for the man in front of you. To do so would cost you everything; your kingdom, your people, and your family.
As you stare at him, you can’t help but wonder how different things would have been, had you been normal. If you’d had a say over your own life. You do your best to not entertain the thought.
“Want to dance?”
You eyes narrow, “Not with you Damian Wayne. Not now, not ever.”
The smirk never leaves his face, even as he watches you walk away. You slip away from the party and into the bathroom. You struggle for breath, as you lock the door and pull at the strings on the back of the dress. You want it off!
When you can’t get it after several minutes, you slide to the floor, and try to catch your breath. Your life had been so different three months ago, you’d been set in your determination. You had known exactly what you were doing with your life, and exactly what was needed.
You had been in the states for a royal tour, and you’d been in Gotham for a Wayne Enterprises Gala. Things had been going swimmingly, right up until it had been attacked, and you had been kidnapped.
You were the heir to the Kaznia throne, your mother was Queen Audrey. You were an only child, and if someone were to remove you, then the throne would be open to the next in line, Count Vertigo.
The man was a snake, of that you were sure. He was slimy and manipulative, and he was determined to get his hands on the throne, and your people. Your mother was still young and healthy, but a series of accidents over the last several months had put you on alert.
There was little you could do to remove him from court, at the moment, but you were working on a more permanent solution. Then you had been kidnapped. It had happened in a storm of men dressed in black, with guns. You’d been whisked out of the theatre, before anyone could do anything.
You’d been held in a dark, dank cell for several days. You’d refused any food offered, and only drank a necessary amount of water. On the fourth day, things had taken a turn, for the better or worse you still weren’t sure, but your life had changed forever that day.
He’d appeared dressed in red and black, like a demon out of hell. He’d taken down the men guarding your cell, and picked the lock before you could understand what was happening. And then he’d said the twelve words you knew by heart, the words tattooed across your right hip, “If you’d follow me your highness, I’ll get you out of here.”
You’d spent hours staring at those words, from the moment they’d first appeared on your skin. You’d fantasized about the man who would say them, and more than once you’d gotten caught up in the daydream.
You’d dreamed about a young handsome man who’d whisk you away from a party. You’d stroll through a garden, he’d smile, and you’d blush. It would be like a story from a fairy tale. Instead, you’d gone four days without a shower, were dressed in a ripped ball gown, and you were being held against your will.
So, you say the only thing you can think of, “Why does it have to be a Robin?”
I’ve recently reached 50k followers and to me, that’s pretty crazy. I never expected it, so in light of that, I’ve decided it’s time to update my favorite blogs! Twenty people will be chosen and featured in the favorites section of my blog. maybe even more!
This week’s Johtodex update features everyone’s favorite singing balloon fairies, the Jigglypuff line! I’ve always had a fondness for Wigglytuff’s adorable design and Jigglypuff has always been my dad’s favorite Pokemon, so these guys mean a good deal to me!
With the style I’ve made for this project, I try to keep to the tiny eyes I’ve been giving them, but it’s hard not to make an exception when the eyes are the most defining physical feature!
