“Excuse me, that man in the corner, who is he?” “He’s one of them rangers. Dangerous folk they are — wandering the wilds. What his right name is I’ve never heard, but around here, he’s known as Strider.”
Take the courses. Brace the main and mizzen aback. Haul in the guns. Close all the gun ports. You’re letting up? With the damage done to the rig, I can’t maneuver our broadside around fast enough to be of any effect. The sloops are too nimble. But hauling in the guns? They’ll board us easily.
Summary: Y/N teams up with Steve and Dustin accidentally
Pairing: Eventual Steve x Reader, Dustin x Steve bromance
A/N: Season two left me in tears and gave me a whole flood of emotions, gosh. Steve is definitely one of my top three fave characters, and I LOVE the friendship between him and Dustin (who I’m so happy had a bigger part in S2!) I just had to write for him/them. Probably gonna be a series. I’m so bad at titles I’m sorry
Steve whirled around to the sound of his name. “Y/N? What are you doing here?”
“Um, I borrowed these from Nancy for Tina’s party. I was just going to give them back.” Y/N held up black heels.
“Oh, she’s not home.”
“Dude!” The car door opened, revealing a boy with curly hair and a red, white and blue hat. “What is taking you so-” He cut off when he spotted Y/N.
“Why don’t you come with us?” Steve blurted out.
“Come with you guys?” She asked, confusedly.
“Come with us?” The boy in the car repeated.
“Yeah.” Steve shrugged. “The more the merrier right?”
“Just, stay in here alright? Dustin’s got a big, um,” Steve tapped his hand against the door of the car.
“Raccoon problem.” The boy, Dustin, cut in with a smile.
“Right. Raccoons. Whole bunch of them.”
Y/N nodded. “Okay.” She eyed the bat Steve held with nails protruding from the top.
“Why did you invite her here?” Dustin asked as soon as the door shut and they were descending down the storm cellar steps.
“I panicked alright? She was talking to me and what if she was gonna start asking questions, or follow us, or tell someone?”
“You’re an idiot.” Dustin deadpanned. “She wouldn’t have done any of those things if you hadn’t invited her! And what if we can’t control Dart? What if something happens to her?”
“Don’t say that. Nothing is going to-” They stopped, staring at the sight in front of them. A slimy piece of molted skin lay on the ground and a hole was in the wall where Dart had made his escape.
“So, raccoons huh?”
“Hey guys? I think I should be getting home…” Y/N called down the dark steps of the cellar. “Guys?”
Swallowing nervously, she began to go down the stairs. When she reached the bottom, she heard them, and slowly, crept towards them.
“-This is bad. Very bad.”
“I couldn’t tell when I first saw this, thank you for your insights.”
Creeping closer, she gaped at the scene in front of her.
Why Does it Have to be You? - Damian Wayne x Reader
Requested by Anon -
a Damian x reader where Klarion has started causing chaos around Gotham and the only person he’s willing to listen to is the reader, because he has a crush on them.
The night was a quiet one. So quiet, in fact, Damian sent you home earlier when he caught you yawning one too many times. He knew you hadn’t been getting much rest lately.
Damian was currently crouched by a stone gargoyle, debating whether he should turn in himself. The thought about crawling into bed next to you seemed very appealing. He frowned, glancing at the clock tower behind him to find it still an unnaturally early hour. Taking out his grapple gun, Damian decided to make one more round of the city before returning home to you.
Damian was just going passed the Gotham Train Station when a explosion sent him tumbling to the ground. He rolled back to his feet before scrambling to see what happened. Much to his displeasure, he spotted a swam of magical energy surrounding the building.
Swinging down to slip into the building through one of the windows, Damian growled as he saw Klarion floating in the center of the room.
“What are you doing here, Witch Boy?” Damian demanded, dropping down to the floor. Klarion sneered at him, lifting a finger to zap a civilian unlucky enough to cross his path. The person turned into a mouse, scurrying away.
“Go away, Birdy. My kitty might eat you,” Klarion threatened, glancing around. He frowned when he realized Damian was the only vigilante in the room. “Where is (Y/N)?”
Damian sighed, sensing what this was about. “(Y/N) is not here, Witch Boy. I’m afraid you only have me tonight.” He watched silently as Klarion’s face slowly grew redder and more grotesque. Damian’s eyes widened when he felt something brush against his leg. He glanced down to find Teekl. Before he could move, Teekl turned into a giant beast. Damian fought the monstrous Teekl while Klarion threw magic blasts at him.
“No, No, No!!!” Klarion was screaming as Damian did his best to avoid the magic blasts and Teekl. Eventually, one of Teekl’s paws slammed into Damian throwing him out of the building and into the street. Damian could feel one of his ribs crack, but rolled out of the way of another magic blast from Klarion.
You paced around your apartment waiting for Yoongi to show up. You heard your apartment doorbell buzz. Not even bothering to check who it was you pressed the button, unlocking the door.
There was a knock at your door and you reluctantly pulled it open.
Giving you a weak smile, Yoongi greeted, “Hey, Y/N.”
“No, you don’t get to do that. Stop being so cute all the damn time. I’m supposed to be sad–mad but all I see is the hair I dared you to dye blue. Let’s try this again,” You blurted turning around so you weren’t facing hime. “Start again,” You whispered.
“Y/N,” Yoongi whined. “I know what you saw looked probably very wrong but as cliche as it sounds, it wasn’t what it looked like.”
“Then explain please.”
“She was one of my classmates from high school. She had a massive crush on me but I never returned her feelings for me. Long story short, she pined after me year after year until we graduated and I never saw her again. Until today. At the pier, where I was supposed to meet you, suddenly I heard someone shout my name and I turned and there she was.”
He paused just in case you had any sort of reaction. You turned back around and nodded stiffly, motioning him to continue.
“I thought just maybe she’d grown out of her silly crush and get an actual boyfriend but no, after all these years she confessed she still liked me. That was when I mentioned you. Oh, by the way, irrelevant but if you ever meet her just let her know we’re dating because I kind of told her that. Anyway, she tried to pull moves on me but like before, I wasn’t falling for them. She tried to convince me that you weren’t the one for me.”
You scoffed at this. She didn’t even know you. How was it possible to get so jealous of a person she didn’t even know personally?
“That was when she started getting real close and grabbed my hand. I’m assuming that’s what you saw. But as soon as she leaned in a millimeter I pulled away from her. She was so desperate, but I still apologized for me not feeling the same way and then she stomped off. Then I continued to wait for you. After waiting a while, I might’ve grew impatient and wanted to call you…until i saw your texts,” Yoongi rubbed the back of his neck, awkwardly.
“And here we are,” You lifted your arms to drop them again at your sides.
“Here we are,” He repeated. “Do you believe me?”
You stared at Yoongi’s face to catch any sign of bluffing. When finding none, you sighed. “Yes, I believe you.”
“Oh, thank god!” He embraced you and didn’t let go.
“What did you have for me? Before all this happened you told me you had something for me?” You asked, your voice muffled into his sweater.
Pulling away, he smiled, somewhat nervously, before digging into the pocket of his jeans.
“I know it’s not diamonds but here,” He handed you a long, velvet box. Peering at him curiously, you opened it and revealed a thin, gold, bracelet chain with a single charm at the center. Turning the charm over, it was a small circle with the initials M.Y. embedded into it.
“Yoongi, it’s beautiful,” You stared in awe.
“It would’ve been much more romantic before,” he grumbled, swaying his hands.
“I would’ve loved it just as much. What’s it for?”
“Y/N, we’ve known each other for months now and I’d really really like it if you’d maybe want to see how our relationship would go if we took it to the next level?”
“Wait, so by that you mean, do exactly what we’ve been doing except have a title now?” You smirked.
“Yeah…And I’d get to kiss you now.”
“Now? Dude, I’ve been waiting for you to kiss me for months.”
“Why did I have to be the one to kiss you?”
“I had to know your feelings were there!”
“Fine, fair enough. So it’s a yes?”
“Of course it’s a yes!” You went back into the embrace and felt your cheeks heat up. “You know, I was the one who made Hoseok give you my number because I saw you on his snapchat story.”
“Oh, yeah. I was there with him, and he was showing me the texts,” He chuckled and your face got ever redder.
“That sly little––I’m going to kill him.”
Yoongi only laughed again and pulled you both down on the couch. His head laid on your lap as you played with his blue locks. Giggling to yourself, you smirked.
“Does this mean I can call you pet names?”
Furrowing his brows, he asked, “Like what?”
So here it is! It’s over….I think! If anything I’ll post a bonus chapter if y’all want to see their cute relationship!! Glad you enjoyed it!!
