Prompt: There’s this comedian called Michael Mcintyre
who has a chat show and sometimes plays this game called “send to
all” where he takes the guests phone and sends a mass text out then reads
the replies out. It’s on you tube and hilarious but anyway i was wondering if
you could do something where the reader is an actress on the show and agrees to
play and he sends out a flirty text or something like that and she gets a few
funny replies from Evans, Fassbender, Macavoy, Cumberbatch and TOM HIDDLESTON Note: Okay so I went a bit mad with this one and did make a few adjustments, however 99% of it is what was asked for. This one is for the lovely @dohegotthesuperbooty - I’m sorry it took so long (I’m really behind!!) - for anyone who is interested, the video behind this idea can be found here.
You were stood at the side of the stage awaiting your cue;
it was your turn to appear on several British chat shows to promote your new
film. You were staring in a new rom-com opposite Tom Hiddleston; the two of you
had become very close over the last course of shooting the film, a fact that
had purposely been left out of the media.
The show you were appearing on was that of comedian Michael
McIntyre. All you could think about was his infamous game of ‘Send to All’. The
producers had prepared you for the game; however it was up to the host as to
whether or not you would be playing.
From centre stage, you heard Michael call your name. You
began to walk over, the crowd went wild. Walking over to your seat, you waved
to the audience. Once you reached the spot where Michael was stood, he gave you
a friendly hug and welcomed you to the show. The two of you took your seats.
Once the crowd had quietened down, he welcomed you to the show once again.
“So, welcome to the show!” He smiled.
“Thank you!” You said with a smile, “Thanks for having me, I’m a big fan of the
show but I never thought I’d be sat here!” You exclaimed.
The interview was going extremely well, you were laughing
and joking with both the audience and the host. Then he said those words you
really didn’t want to hear.
“So we have a bit of a tradition on this show.” Michael began to laugh;
everyone knew what he was going to say. “I like to play a lovely little game called ‘Send to All’ with my guests, are you up
for a go?”
You started to think, what options did you have? If you were to say no… well,
you’d only be forced to play to prove you had nothing to hide.
“Sure!” You said, a little too enthusiastically.
“Excellent!” Michael matched your tone. “The rules are simple, I’m going to
come up with a message to send to all of the contacts in your phone and we’re
going to leave it over the course of the show and then see who replies!”
“Great, can you just not send it to my mum” you laughed, as did everyone else
in the studio.
“Okay, I think I’ve come up with the perfect message”
“Oh no” you joked as you handed over your phone.
“Here goes…” Michael typed each word as he said it. “Hey, it… feels… like
we haven’t seen… each other… in such a long time…” Michael stopped typing
and looked over to you, he was giggling at the message he was typing. You on
the other hand were using your laughter to disguise how red your face had
become. “Why don’t we…” he continued to type “meet up… for a drink… or two?”
Michael turned to you once again, “Do you use emoticons?” he asked.
“Probably too much” you responded.
“Excellent, how about little kisses?” he asked.
“Yeah, I guess, just one though. And always lowercase!” you added.
“In that case, I’ll add a little winking face and a kiss!” He looked up and
addressed the audience. “Ladies and gentlemen, we have our text message!” The
audience cheered. “Okay, here’s the message…” he paused and cleared his throat,
“Hey, it feels like we haven’t seen each other in such a long time. Why don’t
we meet up for a drink or two [question mark] [winking face] [kiss]” he
laughed, as did the audience. You began to laugh but at the same time you were
slowly bringing your hands up to your face to once again, cover up how red it
was. “What do you think, shall we send to all?!” He asked the audience. They
went wild. “It’s gone, sent!” Michael turned back around and walked to his seat
to continue your interview.
You spent the rest of the interview trying not to think
about the messages currently coming through to your phone. You had just about
removed the thought from your mind when Michael said “Right, well there’s just
one last piece of business we need to discuss before I let you go.” He paused
while the audience reacted. “Let’s read out some of the replies to the text we
sent from your phone shall we? Okay so the message we sent read ‘Hey, it feels
like we haven’t seen each other in such a long time. Why don’t we meet up for a
drink or two [question mark] [winking face] [kiss]’. Wow, okay so you’ve got a
fair few replies here!” The audience cheered.
“Better than getting none I suppose” you joked.
“Right, first up we have Chris Evans ladies and gentlemen! Wait, is this Captain
America Chris Evans or BBC Radio DJ Chris Evans?” he asked you.
“I don’t think I should answer that until you’ve read the reply,” you laughed
“no it’s Captain America Chris Evans” you smiled.
“Well Chris replied with ‘Dude, we aren’t even in the same country right now!
Count me in for next time though, we’ll all go out’ how nice is that! But what
does he mean by ‘all’?
“Yeah, he’s a good egg!” you smiled, “I’m guessing he just means getting the
old gang back together”
“Okay next up is… it looks like you’ve got the number of everyone who’s ever
been in a Marvel film here!” the two of you laughed as he continued to look for
the next reply. “I think we will go for this one next, James McAvoy.”
“Oh no!” you exclaimed as you brought your hands to your face, “This is going
to be a bad one isn’t it!”
“That depends what it means! It says ‘Are ye sure pal? You know what happened
last time!’ then there’s one of those laughing and crying faces. What happened
last time?” He questioned you.
You tried to contain the laughter, “nothing, nothing happened last time – at
least nothing that you’re all probably thinking anyway! All that happened was a
few of us had gone out and had far too much to drink, we all got a taxi and
when it was my stop James helped me out of the taxi and then after insisting I
was fine… I fell up the steps.” The audience and Michael laughed at your story,
you chuckled, after all it had been quite funny.
“Wonderful, we have time for just a few more! Who’s next?
‘Benny C’ is that who I think it is?” you nodded in response. “We have to read
this one! It says ‘Sorry not tonight, I’ve got my hands full. However you can
both count me in next time!’ At least he’s up for the next time, but what does
he mean by both?” he questioned you.
“Well a fair few people know I’m here
tonight, he probably just knows it was you” you smiled.
“Hmm,” Michael looked as you quizzically.
“He is Sherlock Holmes after all,” you added “all that detective knowledge has
to have rubbed off”
Michael agreed with you and moved on, “Okay, this is the last one now, let’s go
for the man himself, your co-star Mr Tom Hiddleston ladies and gentlemen!” The
audience cheered, some more excited than others as you heard several women let
out high pitched screams.
Your face turned the brightest shade of red possible; you could only hope that
he hadn’t said anything that would give the two of you away.
“Let’s see what he has to say shall we,” Michael cleared his throat, “’Darling,
we spent six months together making a film and I’ve seen you every night since
we got home. Shall I come and pick you up? x T’” Michael took a moment for
everyone to process the message he had just read. “Well, well, well! It looks
like you were hiding something after all. Anything you want to say?” He asked.
“No, not really” you responded, you could feel yourself getting warmer. You
were debating whether or not to address it, although Tom had practically
already made that decision for you and left you without a choice. In the end,
you decided it was best to talk. “When you shoot a romantic film you spend a
lot of time with your co-star and about sixty percent of that time you’re in
quite an intimate position.” The redness was starting to disappear from your
face, replaced only by a smile that suggested you were happily in love.
“Well ladies and gentlemen, it looks like the show is ending
on a lovely note! Thank you to all of tonight’s guests and I’ll see you next
hello this is a cute little highschool!AU for otayuri it’s my second fic ever don’t judge me
anyways this was supposed to be a funny little crack fic based on some starter but here we are with 3486 words and a whole lot of regret
The last thing Yuri Plisetsky expected to be doing with his day was searching for a certain handwriting, collecting samples to compare with a scribbled graffiti on a bathroom stall.
But hey, c'est la vie.
request: could you write a oneshot where Harry and y/n have 3 sons and y/n has to go away for work and Harry’s looking after them and when she comes back she’s all 😍😍😍 for her boys please? And can you include the type of banter you had in last Christmas? I loved that!!! Thanks for sharing! X
this got kind of long lol but i really liked writing it, i hope you guys love it too! no warnings, absolute fluff once again.
I was awoken by a five year old climbing into bed between myself and Harry.
“Jayden?” I heard Harry’s sleepy voice croak.
“Hi daddy.” I smiled at the sound of my son’s voice.
“Hi buddy, what’s going on?”
I felt Jayden cuddle up next to me, “Mummy’s leaving today, I wanted to say goodbye.”
I laughed, fully awake now, “Bubby, I’m not leaving for a long time, probably not until the twins go down for their afternoon nap.” I said, glancing at the clock that said 3:17 AM.
He looked at me with the widest green eyes. My three sons were all replicas of their father. Which was nice, because, obviously, they were beautiful, but I was a little jealous and hoped at least one of them would begin to show a feature of mine as they grew. “Please don’t make me go back in my room.”
The universe has all it’s eggs in a row. What does this mean? What is it planning? What does it want? Why are we here? What have we done to deserve this fate? There are more questions then there will ever be answers.
I was breeding in Pokémon Sun, so I was picking up eggs from the woman in front of the nursery and running around in circles, probably freaking her out a little. Though eventually I did notice her change.
Do you see the change. She puts one hand in front on her chin, and the other one on the elbow, like she’s contemplating someone. Well guess what, when she does that means that she has an egg for you. This is such a nice update for the franchise. I didn’t know how many other people knew that so I thought I should tell all of you.
I'm going to be mean and send you a hard RGU ask, since it's something I don't really understand myself. The Utena and Anthy portions of "Nanami's Egg," especially the ending. I feel like it's really important (the egg is somehow connected to ChuChu? What does this mean for all of the things that he symbolizes about Anthy?), but I just /can't/ figure out what the hell is going on with that scene. Is it connected to the conversation about reincarnation? If so, what is going on there? Im perplexed
Hmm. There is a lot that is puzzling about that episode - apart from the more obvious themes of puberty, sexuality and maternity (tumbled together into one glorious mess) and the character elements of social alienation and Nanami being an adorable space alien human being there also appears to be a lot of other stuff going on that isn’t necessarily clearly or fully stated.
I think the scene at the end of the episode links to the practicalities of it rather than the themes:
[Chu-chu turns up in the lift]
The combination of Chu-chu being away for a while, Anthy’s face and this scene occurring directly after Nanami wakes up to discover her egg smashed very heavily suggests that Anthy sent Chu-chu to smash Nanami’s egg and, presumably, to plant it in the first place. (Honestly, the only other reason I can think of would be that Chu-chu was in the egg, which I suppose would give the conversation about reincarnation a slightly different meaning.) I guess the question then becomes why Anthy would do such a thing. It’s pretty well-known that Anthy is angry at Nanami specifically after Nanami bullies her in the first few episodes (for example, when you think about it Anthy must have orchestrated the cowbell incident, or at least had it in her power to stop it.) So perhaps this is an extension of that, supported by the fact that Anthy does leap on the chance to mock Nanami by comparing her to a chicken in the earlier scene:
Like in the cowbell episode, we have a case of misplaced identity: through the power of the shared name and an associated token (in this case, the egg), Nanami takes on some of the aspects of the chicken, becoming broody. Actually, now that I think of it that comments nicely on the malleability of identity for young people - they don’t have who they are quite sorted yet, so it’s easy for them to be influenced by outside ideas and, notably in this case, what others might think about them. I wonder, given that, if Anthy wasn’t attempting to hurt Nanami so much as teach her something, and her sly smile is evidence that she succeeded? Compare the Nanami of this episode to that of the earlier ones. Once Nanami drowned a kitten because they got between her and her brother; in this episode she goes back for the egg even after Touga rejects both her and it. In the cowbell episode, Nanami is confident in her fashion choices despite everyone talking behind her back; in this episode, she is paralysed by fear that people will reject her as a space alien; but by the end, she attacks Saionji for the egg no matter what he might think (and she runs away just as he starts to tell her what he thinks). The egg somehow brings out a protective, nurturing side in an otherwise incredibly spoilt and narcissistic girl - I love Nanami, but you can’t deny that it’s true. And at the end of the episode, the egg breaks and Nanami learns about loss and grief. Whether it was Anthy’s intention or not, I think that a lot of the character stuff in this episode leads directly towards the personal strength that Nanami exhibits at the end of her arc, when she gives up her exalted status and breaks herself off from her brother.
I’m still not entirely sure about the reincarnation conversation, but this strikes me as relevant:
The ideas of maternity and reincarnation (the one inherent to this episode, the other apparently only appearing in this conversation) are here merged: being a parent and passing on parts of your life to your children is almost like reincarnation, as something of yourself lives on in them after you die. I don’t think the implication is that Nanami is going to teach her space-alien child to be as amazing as she is - in the context of this discussion, I think it must be implying that Anthy is trying to pass something on to Nanami. And now that I look at it, the egg drama engages Nanami in the aspects where she is most like Anthy herself. Anthy is a slave to public opinion, so Nanami is taught that some things are more important, that it can be ignored. Anthy can’t break herself free from her brother, so Nanami is taught that her own brother is far from perfect. Anthy still mourns the loss of a previous life, so Nanami is taught that good things can end and you have to move on. She’s pretty cruel about it because, well, this is Anthy, but I think that the overall intention was to help Nanami rather than hurt her. And that’s why the topic of reincarnation came up in the midnight conversation, because Anthy is trying to leave a better version of herself behind.
This is one of those posts in which I had absolutely no idea where it was going when I started writing it. This explanation seems really satisfactory but I kind of can’t tell whether it’s a stretch or not. Thanks for the interesting question (and giving me the excuse to watch Nanami’s Egg again)!
