James Buchanan Barnes has a very odd way of asking for help, in Tony’s humble opinion. Spiking his drink and kidnapping him from his birthday party? Had the guy never heard of phones before?
But when Tony hears that Steve and Sam have vanished without a trace, he can’t simply ignore it - as angry as he still is at his former teammate.
Will Tony and Bucky manage to put their differences aside and find their friends in time? Of course they will, let’s be real. The important question really is, why is this man that still haunts Tony’s dreams so damn enticing?

Across the globe, every night one random person vanishes without a trace. When this phenomenon is discovered the world panics. The world bands together to learn more. What they discover is far more sinister than anyone imagined.


First Look at Duncan Jones’ Sci-Fi Noir ‘Mute’ 

“Set in the near-future, Leo (Alexander Skarsgård) is a bartender living in the pulsing city of Berlin.  Because of a childhood accident, Leo lost the ability to speak and the only good thing in his life is his beautiful girlfriend Naadirah (Seyneb Saleh). When she vanishes without a trace, Leo’s search for her takes him deep into the city’s seedy underbelly.  A pair of wise-cracking American surgeons (Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux) are the only recurring clue and Leo is forced to take on this teeming underworld in order to find his love.”

In August of 2002, 7-year-old Garnell Moore simply vanished without a trace. The young boy had been living with his aunt, Belinda Cash, in Baltimore, Maryland. Garnell had a particularly bleak childhood with his mother in jail and his father led a transient lifestyle; he was moved from pillar to post throughout his life and seemed nobodies concern, even after his disappearance. During the first few years of his life, Garnell was passed around family members before being sent to live with Belinda Cash, who never enrolled him in school, when he was 6-years-old. It wasn’t until 2005, three years after his disappearance, that the rest of his family, mother and father included, realised that he was missing. Belinda claimed that she didn’t want to care for him anymore and left him at the door of a social services building in West Baltimore. It begs the question: “How can we live in a society where a child can disappear without anybody noticing he is gone for three years?” Due the human negligence, a young boy slipped through the cracks, never to be heard from or seen again.

Really just wanna run away

The first look at Duncan JonesMute.

My daughter habitually wakes me in the middle of the night to tell me there is a monster in her closet.

It’s the 11th time she’s done this in 2016, and every time she does it I can hear her as clearly as my own breathing- but she’s never there. Not since she disappeared, since I told her not to worry about the monster and go back to bed, since she vanished from our home without a trace. On the nights I hear her, I sometimes go back to her old bedroom and stand in front the closet. Some nights, like tonight, a cold draft blows out from under the door.

Someone once said, go too far from home and you will lose your roots kill too many people and you will forget yourself. If you die in battle your life will sink into the ground like rain and vanish without a trace. If at that time, you fall in love with someone hope will blossom again from the earth and embrace life with passion. Thank you, Wentai.

(Right in the feels!!!! I thought you loved us Anon?! I just hope I did you justice because this was more hurtful but I promise that it will end with so much fluff, you will taste marshmallows for a week! Thanks for this Anon!!! ^_^ Mod Firefly)

He was faced with a ghost but to him, he knew that ghost could not hold his attention as strongly as this one. It had been almost 6 months since they had vanished almost without a trace when he was called away to a mission and because of this, he thought that they had left him because of his appearance but when they discovered that they were taken while doing the laundry, he was even more heartbroken, rage and sorrow blending and forming into an unstoppable storm inside of him soul.

Mercy tried to convince him that he needed to rest, that the team would find him yet, being of the Shimada bloodline, he refused to do anything but look for them and meditate, hoping to find them. It was until he received word that they had located you that he became the most energetic but the next words were what broke him. “Genji…They have been without any physical human contact for the entire time…they would not even let Mercy touch them.”

He walked in and when he saw their eyes, he felt his own heart shatter but it was what was said that made him feel the first bit of joy he has longed for in almost 6 months. “G-Genji?” was all that was spoken as they tried to rush but fell as he caught them, holding them close as they cried, saying that they knew that Talon was lying about him being hurt but wanted to see him themselves. This was what he needed and he realized it now, the 6 months they were missing they had one set goal; returning to the home in his arms.

This man knows what distance can do to a heart. He also knows that his music has not been the same since the muse for his music was taken by a Talon agent. He hadn’t slept much in the 3 months that they had been missing but he was not expecting to come in contact with the eyes he fell for the first time they looked in his. They were still the same beautiful color yet they had lost the beautiful luster in those 3 months without him.

“(Y/N)…babe…Is that you?” He asked as he rushes over and starts to remove the chains that kept them away from him. As he goes to touch them, he is shocked that they flinch away from him and when he looked at them, he saw the fear and sorrow in their eyes as he kneeled down, holding his hand to them. “It’s ok, nightgale. I am here…It’s me, Lucio, I am here to take you back home now.” He whispers as they hesitate on taking his hand and it was in that moment, he knew that they were without any sort of human touch for the past 3 months.

“Shh…its ok, I am here…I am not letting you go again.” He whispers as he holds them and doesn’t let them go, even when Mercy asked to look over their wounds. He wasn’t going to let you go again…not now, not anytime soon. He is going to show you that he is here and isn’t leaving them alone again. He would give up everything to keep them safe but having them in his arms and finally sleeping peacefully for the first time in 3 months, that was the music he was searching for.

A month…a full 4 weeks…almost 31 days…730 hours since Lena had a chance to hold her dearest in her arms and now, there they were. They were dirty, looked to have been through torture but all she wanted to do was hold them, to tell them that nothing was going to happen now because she was going to be there now. “Oh Love!” She shouts as she goes to grab them in a hug but was heartbroken when they flinched away from her, whimpering and shaking like a wounded animal.

“(Y/N)…Darling…it’s me, Lena.” They would still be afraid but looking at her now with tears falling from their eyes, instantly breaking her heart yet unleashing something she has never felt before; something like rage and guilt. She fell to her knees and just started to cry because she knew that this was not what she wanted to feel…she never wanted to hate anyone yet seeing what they did to her beloved anchor of her heart, she could not help it.

“L-L-Lena?” was softly heard from the corner but she barely heard it as she was crying and wishing she did not feel this anger in herself because from the anger came the pain. Before she could register what was happening, she was in the arms of someone who was trying to calm her down from her own fears. “It’s ok Lena…I am sorry…I…I was scared.” They shyly admitted as her first instinct was to grab them and hold them tightly, not letting go for anything. She loved them too much and it was because of them; she was back to her normal self. She will lift them up but she needed them to anchor her back to her emotions.

Do you like having feelings? Do you like crying about fictional characters? Do you enjoy suffering? Then you should definitely start reading STAR WARS fic, because it’s so much suffering and you’ll thank me for inflicting it on you. Especially if you start reading about Obi-Wan and Anakin, they are the Sufferingiest characters I’ve come across in a long time. JOIN US IN SUFFERING. (Fic recs every Wednesday.)

Seed by bell (bellaboo), obi-wan/anakin & anakin/padme & cast, NSFW, 34.5k wip
   When Anakin falls prey to a lethal poison, Obi-Wan has no choice but use all his resources to heal him– no matter how reluctant he is in administering the antidote.
Negotiation by Glare, obi-wan/anakin & ahsoka, nsfw, modern au, serial killer au, 24.8k wip
   Over a year ago, Coruscant Police Detective Anakin Skywalker vanished without a trace while hunting the prolific serial killer known within the media as “The Negotiator”. Now, Skywalker has been found and rescued from captivity in a cabin deep within the Naboo wilderness, the only known survivor of an encounter with The Negotiator. The only question on anyone’s mind is: What happened during his time away?
Lay Your Weary Head Down (On Me) by Ripki, obi-wan & anakin (pre-slash?), 2.k
   Sleep can be as violent as a gruesome fight; as restful as a beloved’s embrace. (The setting of the stage.)
shelter by tangeton, obi-wan/anakin & cast, 4.5k wip
   A Jedi and a slave walk into a bar. This could be a setup to a terrible joke, and it is, because Obi-Wan really hadn’t meant to free all the slaves on this blasted planet. Tatooine AU.
Stubbornness and Strategy by lesbiananakin, obi-wan/anakin, NSFW, 2.1k
   Anakin’s bored, and Obi Wan knows to be worried when that happens. Two equally stubborn Jedi, a room full of people who they can’t let know they’re thinking inappropriate thoughts at each other, and a whole lot of sexual and non-sexual frustration.
untitled by ramesees, obi-wan/anakin (pre-slash?) & ahsoka & yoda, 1.4k
   “Difficult it will be for us to hide from Darth Sidious’ reach.”
One Day by ruth baulding, obi-wan & qui-gon & mace & shmi & bail/breha & palpatine, 9.9k
   A single moment in time, on five different planets. A birth, an election, a discovery, a marriage, and a mission. Because all things are mysteriously united in the Force.
In Pursuit by zinjadu, obi-wan & anakin & ahsoka & rex & padme & cast, 40k
   AU - The Jedi Who Knew Too Much. Rex decides to stay “in pursuit” of his Commander; he jumps. Now, with backup, Ahsoka navigates the lower levels and deals with Ventress. Meanwhile, Anakin takes the Order to task, finds a little more support, and things turn out a little differently for everyone. And this is just the beginning.
A Familiar Face by ruth baulding, obi-wan & clone, 15.4k
   Just another day of exile. Featuring one and a half glasses of ale , a million-credit bounty, and a despicable hive of scum and villainy.
the dream of flight persists by victoria_p (musesfool), obi-wan & anakin/kaylee & river & firefly cast & star wars cast, 16.7k
   Anakin’s never found much serenity himself, despite all the meditation he’s been subjected to over the years; maybe working on this ship will do it.

I feel like there are two entities in my head - in opposite tangents with each other. Opposite opinions, juxtaposed arguments, oxymorons. ‘You don’t need it. It’s something that does not benefit you in the slightest, so to hell with it,’ one states; ‘but you do,’ another argues. ‘You crave it. It’s something so special that you should at least try and see if things could possibly work out - for the better.’ Pffft, as if.

So there you go: the logical, calculative side of me that makes sure everything I need to do is done, and the other detestable side of me that feels more than it should. And I like to think the me typing this is a combination of both, the middle man, the one that prevents any insane acts. The (accursed) emotional part of me rarely comes out of her little corner at the back of my mind, but when she does she is so incredibly  overwhelming, so powerful, that I can’t help but despair at the futility of the argument she sets, the truth it holds.

I crave human interaction. Friendliness. Skinship. Is that odd? A desire for the people you care for to acknowledge your existence, to accept you, to want to keep you around. And yet, at the same time, a part of me feels that as long as I have the people I hold dearest with me, I could do without it. I could put up with the fact that I’m not necessary, not needed. You’re (admittedly) not that important in my life, despite the fact that I do care for you. So why is this so difficult? Why? Why do I desire something that is obviously a hindrance, a weakness? Why is it that I obviously care more than you do?

I suppose the insecurity I’ve always had with all the friendships I’ve had is encapsulated by the silent plea of ‘don’t leave me; don’t replace me’, as cliched as it sounds. Perhaps… this is karma. After all, I’ve always been the one to sever friendships when I don’t see any future for it, to leave things in the past and end things at the peak, where we had the most fun together; so that when we take a trip down memory lane we would only remember all good times we’ve shared - an echo of ‘it was good while it lasted’. Well, they’ve always said that karma’s a bitch.

A wish that I’ve always had, a hope I’ve always clung onto, is the thought of having a soulmate of some sort; a person whom with you could just look at and they’d understand instantly what you’re thinking of, and vice versa. A shared glance, a mirrored grin; like a message sent and received in a time span of a millisecond. You get people who meet - and just, click. They click so well it’s like a lock and a key that is specially made for each other and no other keys can fit that hole, just like no other holes can fit the key. The someone who would be a constant in your life, someone that will always come back to you.

But since that person is so elusive, I just want everything to vanish. For feelings to leave me alone, for loneliness to go away. Because if they don’t, I will.


Someone once said, go too far from home and you will lose your roots. Kill too many people and you will forget yourself. If you die in battle, your life will sink into the ground like rain and vanish without a trace. If at that time, you fall in love with someone, hope will blossom again from the earth and embrace life with passion. Wentai, thank you.

anonymous asked:

Can we get Dazai’s reaction seeing his bride walk down the aisle on their wedding day?

This is such an adorable ask omg (੭ ˃̣̣̥ ω˂̣̣̥)੭ु⁾⁾

Osamu Dazai

  • Dazai unsurprisingly experiences pre-wedding jitters like any other typical groom would before the big day, but he finds those nerves vanishing without a trace the second you come around the corner and your eyes meet for the first time all day, and he could feel a smile instantly blossoming on his face at the sight of his blushing bride. He could’ve sworn that he felt his heart stood still when he saw just how absolutely stunning you looked in your gorgeous bridal gown, with your hair all done up beautifully, and that lovely face of yours enchanted with a timeless beauty.. Dazai nearly lost his breath at the sight of you, and it felt like the whole world had went away and it was just you and him.
  • Dazai could feel his eyes tearing up slightly as he watches you walk down the pathway adorned in pretty flower petals with the most amazing stride, and he has so many thoughts racing through his mind while he eagerly waits for you at the altar. Some of which might be, “Aw, there goes the woman that I love, and she looks so happy to be marrying me.” “I bet she’s wearing something really sexy under that dress.” “She’s so beautiful.. how did I wind up getting so lucky?” “Oh god, don’t cry, don’t cry. Keep yourself together just for a little while longer.” “Okay, don’t laugh if she trips..”
  • When you finally reach the altar and stand before Dazai with your hands joined together, he playfully squeezes your hand with a stupidly happy grin on his face. You think that he’s just really excited as you are and you joyfully squeeze his hand back with a smile of your own, but he’s actually just making sure that this is all real and not just a wonderful dream that he’s having right now, because it’s so surreal to him that he’s going to be marrying the woman that he loves and adores.. (and that he actually managed to find his other half in the enormously vast world that he lives in, and that they accepted him for who he is as a person and all of the sides to him that makes him.. well, him.)
  • After Dazai’s relatively short daze, he’s brought back to reality when the minister clears his throat loud enough to gain his attention, so that the ceremony can now move on to the groom and bride saying their respective vows. Dazai suddenly realizes that everything leading up to this perfect moment wasn’t a beautiful hallucination that he’s experiencing and that it’s all really, truly happening. He starts to feel extremely giddy thinking that from this day onward he gets to spend the rest of his days with you, make adorable, cute little babies with you when you’re both ready to start a family (one of which he’d love to name after Odasaku), and brag about the magical and boundless love that you two have and share to others. Dazai can definitely say that he’s found his happy ending, and what a magnificent happy ending you are to him. 

Little Battleborn Things #934

When you and some friends have two matches where you turn a match around towards the end B^)

We had a capture match in which the final score was 1000-995

We had an Incursion match where the other team had more kills and we were both a sentry down, but in the last minute I pushed ahead as Alani and did damage to their final sentry.

Beauty and the Beast

Pairing: Winter Soldier x Reader

Summary: A Winter Soldier remake of the beloved Beauty and the Beast classic

A/N: Helloooo! I can’t believe it’s the end of Sebtember, so to end it with a bang, here’s a different take on Beauty and the Beast with our favorite soldier! Also happy 25th anniversary to Beauty and the Beast! Thank you so much for participating and I hope you guys enjoy!

“Don’t worry, Tony, I don’t need backup,” you had said.

“I got this,” you had said.

Now look at the web you were caught in. More than half your team was injured and the other half was nowhere to be found. The mission was supposed to be a simple infiltration – get the info and get the hell out. What you hadn’t accounted for was the Asset to show up. He quickly took out majority of your team and then he vanished without a trace. Comms were dead and you had been so distracted by the Winter Soldier, you had lost track of your mission so here you were, trying to locate the control room. Just then, you heard a muffled yelp. You immediately stopped and held your breath, your gun gripped tight. You shuffled your way against a wall and leaned back, taking a deep breath before peeking in. Your eyes immediately widened at the sight of your teammate tied to a chair. You searched the area before declaring it clear and rushing forward to free your partner.

Before you could reach her, you heard heavy footsteps, then the quiet click of a gun. You didn’t need to look to know who it was, so you stayed put, eyeing your team member.

In the weeks leading up to the June, 2003 disappearance of five year old LeeAnna ‘Beaner’ Warner, her parents noticed the child exhibiting odd behaviour. One day, she came home with a box of Barbies and doll clothes, but refused to say who gave them to her beyond ‘a little old lady’; she later packed a suitcase and said she was going to live with her ‘new family’. And two weeks before going missing, LeeAnna was found hiding in her closet, saying there were ‘monsters’ outside. But none of this could have prepared the girl’s parents for what was to come: on June 14, LeeAnna walked off to her friend’s house to see if the girl was home. Neighbours saw LeeAnna leave the house upon realising nobody was there, and then she mysteriously vanished without a trace. After draining a nearby lake LeeAnna spent time by, and ruling out a sex offender in the area and a local man arrested on child pornography charges, as well as LeeAnna’s family, investigators concluded the child was probably abducted by a stranger. She remains missing. The photo on the right shows how she may appear today.
