You spot Newt’s lanky frame curled up in the grassy spot near the lake, knees against his chest and hands around his knees as he stares out over the water, His shaggy hair blows like the waves in the breeze. You can’t fight your smile as you watch him absentmindedly brush his hair from his eyes. You reach into your pocket, forgetting that your gift is back in your room, hidden between the pages of your transfiguration textbook. You remind yourself that it’s only one more day before you can give it to him. One more day.

He doesn’t hear you approaching, jumping at your voice when you call out to him.

“There you are.” The words are a routine, a joke from nearly a year ago when Newt had approached you with shaking hands.

Newt starts to stand, but stops when you shake your head and toss your books onto the ground, plopping down next to him. “Here I am.” He says, scooting over as you take his hand.

“Studied any amazing creatures lately? It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve seen you.”

Newt’s smile is small. “It’s only been a week and a half.”

You raise your eyebrows and lean back. “Sure feels like forever.”

Newt stares at your joined hands. “Maybe.”

The breeze slows, leaving only the warm sunshine to brush your face. “It’s beautiful out. I hope it stays this way for tomorrow.”

“About tomorrow…”

You don’t notice the change in Newt’s tone as you chatter on. “Wow, can you believe it’s been a year? Isn’t a picnic the perfect way to celebrate a year together?”

YES!!!! Y E S ! and Tony barely even notices when people start listening to him at first, because let’s be honest he’s kinda drunk and all he can hear is the music under his fingers- it’s only when he hears someone sniffle behind him and holy shit what the fuck is Steve doing there.

And they just stare at each other for a long time and Tony thinks of maybe calling for the suit bc Howard always got angry when he was caught playing because apparently ‘it was for pansies’, so maybe Steve wouldn’t be too happy about it either.

Except Steve doesn’t look angry. Just…sad. and a little awestruck. He wipes the stray tear from his eyes and looks at Tony with such wonder and sadness and asks,

“how do you… do that?”


“Make it- make it come alive.”

Tony just shrugs, and turns away. He’s always been embarassed of his talent. He doesn’t want anyone seeing it- they always end up laughing.
Or taking it away.

From then on, other people start coming along while he’s playing. Bruce one time, Thor another. Clint and Natasha come down as a pair, standing silently by the threshold as Tony makes his music.
A particularly bad mission goes down, and suddenly Tony is playing to an audience of five, as the sit on the floor, leaning up against the piano while Tony pours out his heart on to the keys.

They’re superheroes. And they’re not happy. But they find comfort in Tony and the music he can make, and that’s good enough.

Sakamaki: in love. Headcannons. Requested By Anon.

- it might take him a little while before he realizes what you mean to him. Until he does he will most likely hang around you more. And might pick on you a little bit, wondering what about you makes him feel alive again.
- Once he has confessed and comes to terms with his affect for you. Right away him places his mark on you, warning his others brothers that if they but you or upset you in any way they have to deal with them.
- He will make more efforts to be a little bit more active and will plan to take you out places. And will allow you to come and go as you please.
- He will most likely shower you with adoration, gifts and praise.
- He sleeps more often in your room then his own.
- He trails you like a shadow. And will likely listen to your simple requests.
- The way he confesses to you will be really romantic, and sweet, but simple. Like a rose with a nose attached to it.

- he notices right away, but he will question why he loves you a lot. So you will often catch him staring at you with confusion.
- He be strangely more playful with you, once he comes to terms with it.
- He makes a rule that his brothers must obey you.
- He barely punishes you at all, but will threaten to try and keep you in line.
- The few times he does punish you is followed by very sweet aftercare.
- He will have you with him as much as he can, and will seek your praise and your praise alone.
- He will most likely confess in a very grand way. As in taking you out to a fancy restaurant, taking you dancing, on a boat ride which will most likely end in fireworks. Only then will he get down on one knee and confess to you.

- the great one might be a bit blind to his feelings. But will certainly be freakishly possessive of you.
- Will start picking on you less, and you’ll most likely see the softer side of him. The side that blushes at what you say to him and your smile.
- More often then not he will sneak into your room so he can hold you close.
- He will start taking you places, he will also be more gentle when he bites into you.
- All of these will happened before he notices his feelings for you. One of his brothers will most likely have to point it out.
- But right away he will straight up confess to you. Asking you right wit with blushing cheeks for you to go out with him.

- he will notice once he likes you.
- He won’t be as erratic and all over the places. In fact he will be fairly normal, since you calm him down.
- He will stop visiting his dolls as much, in fact he will get rid of them if you wanted him too.
- Will shower you in at least three gifts a day.
- He will make you several outfits, some even from the request. Basically you’ll be some his living doll. Which he will adore and baby to with every part of him.
- He likes to sleep barely clothed with you. As in your only in your underwear and he is only in his. So he can feel you pressed up against him.
- When he finally confesses he is a blushing mess. And it’s when your in a room that he has hand set up with all your favorite things.

- he can barely figure it out till his brothers finally sit him down and explain even after that it still takes him a while to accept it.
- Once he does he will not give a damn about other females. Even ignoring them, insulting them, and pushing them aside.
- he treats you like a princess. And will address you as such.
- He started having more respect for you, he will still tease you but is nicer about it and won’t force you into anything you done want.
- He will confess to you with a speech he as prepared. Stating how he couldn’t believe how he fell in love with someone. And will go on to state ever small things about you that makes him love you more and more each day.

- oh he picks up the second it happens and is blushing as red as his eyes. All walls beware.
- At first he will try and stay away and then will find out he can’t. Because he needs you like you need air.
- He will always be at your side. And will often in fact caring your books and you from class to class. Not caring as the teachers tell him to put you down. He will make some excuse and will carry you.
- He is your personal bodyguard, all brothers beware of the wrath of Subaru if they draw even think to bite you.
- It will take most likely a year before he confesses to you and it’s because he can bare it anymore.
- The confession will most likely come when he as a breakdown.
- Right away afterwards he is more affectionate though he blushed a lot more. He doesn’t care because he has you.

Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

Whenever she saw him her eyes; they sparkled like glitters. She was ordinary but with him she was a masterpiece. And that is what love does to you, Love enlightens you, it makes you come alive, more active. Love makes you feel confident about yourself. It makes you love yourself when you hate every single detail of yours. And with her he was becoming a true gentleman. He loved the way she hugged her, he loved when her lips moved to wave out his name.

I’ve seen a lot of talk about anon hate directed towards SKAM artists and authors here on tumblr and on AO3. It just seems ridiculous to me that someone would take the time to hate on something that a fellow fan created. Everyone has the right to express themselves through whatever art form they love. I know I can’t stop the haters but I would encourage everyone to send messages to the authors and artists you love. Let them know how much their art has inspired you. Every little message means so much when you’re creating. 

And to all the artists and writers out there:

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
- Howard Thurman

Big squishy cheek kisses to you all ❤️

My Lisbon Story     - 36 -

We are one step away from the end of My Lisbon Story. Let’s delay the moment of departure by listening to Paixão (Passion), an absolutely fantastic song and gorgeous video by Mariza: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AiVd67KHKqQ

When I listen to this song, I think about my return to film photography and those words by Howard Thurman come to mind: Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it.
