whatcha know bout this

“…and I handed [Roddenberry] my resignation that I’d written out. And he took it, and he just, and I finally laid it on the desk and he looked at it and he said ‘Take the weekend, Nichelle’, 'cause that’s how I know it was either Thursday or Friday, and he says 'and think about it. And if you feel the same way the beginning of next week, if you still feel that way, think about this. It’s more than you think it is. Just think about it, and if you still want to go on by Monday morning, then… go with my blessings.’ And he took the resignation, and he stuck it in his desk drawer. And I said 'Thanks Gene.’ and I skipped out of there, that went better than I thought. And as fate would have it, I’ve always used this word because I believe in fate, I believe it was fated, I was to be a celebrity guest at some fundraising thing in Beverly Hills…And so I went to do this on that Saturday night, and I had just been taken to the deus and been sat down when the organizer came over and said, 'Miss Nichols, …listen, there’s someone here who said he is your biggest fan, …and he’s desperate to meet you… really want’s to meet you.’ And I said, 'Oh, thank you’… And I stand up and I turn and I’m thinking, 'It’s a Star Trek fan. He said a Star Trek fan. I’m looking for a young man who’s a Star Trek fan.’ I turn, and instead of a fan, there’s this face the world knows with this beautiful smile on it. And I remember thinking, 'Whoever that fan is, is gonna have to wait because Dr. King, Dr. Martin Luther King, my leader, is walking toward me, at not ten feet away, with a beautiful smile on his face.’ And then, this man says, 'Yes, Miss Nichols, I am that fan, I am your best fan, your greatest fan. And my family are your greatest fans. As a matter of fact, this is the only show on television that my wife Coretta and I will allow our little children to watch, to stay up and watch because it’s on past their bedtime.’ And I said, {mouths words}, and that was all I was able to say, my mouth just opened and closed. He said, 'We admire you greatly, you know.’ And he said some more things and 'the manner in which you’ve created this role has dignity’ and so forth… I said, 'Dr. King, thank you so much.’ And then I got the courage to say, 'and I really am going to miss my co-stars.’ And he said, 'What do you mean?’ Dead serious. 'What are you talking about?’ I said, 'Well, I’ve had an off-’ …going to say 'have an offer to star in’. I never got that far… He said, 'You cannot. You cannot.’ And I felt like that little boy Willis, 'Whatcha talkin’ 'bout, Willis?’, but you know I didn’t say that, but I was taken aback. And I didn’t say anything, I just looked at him. He said, 'Don’t you understand what this man has achieved?’ …and I thought deja vu all over again. I just looked at him. He said, 'For the first time on television we will be seen as we should be seen, every day. As intelligent, quality, beautiful, people who can sing, dance, …but who can go into space, who can be lawyers, who can be teachers, who can be prof- who are in this day, and yet you don’t see it on television? Until now.’ And he went on, so many of the things, perhaps some of the things he said, but I could say nothing, I just stood there, realizing every word that he was saying was the truth. And he said, 'If you leave, Nichelle, Gene Roddenberry has opened a door for the world to see us, if you leave, that door can be closed because you see, your role is not a black role, and it’s not a female role. He can fill it with anything including an alien.’ And at that moment, the world tilted for me, and I knew then I didn’t want to know it, 'cause I was going to go through some more turmoil for the rest of the week, but I knew that I was something else, that the world was not the same. And that’s all I could think of as Dr. King, everything that he had said, 'the world sees us for the first time as we should be seen.’ And I remember being angry come Sunday or whatever, 'Why me? Why should I have to-?’ Whatever happened, Monday morning I went to Gene, and I’m not sure to this day if I knew what I was going to say. He’s sitting behind that same danged desk, and he had whoever he was talking to had to leave 'cause I wasn’t there first, and I said, 'Gene, …if you still want me to stay, I’ll stay. I have to.’ And he opened his drawer, and he looked up at me and said, 'God bless Dr. Martin Luther King, somebody knows where I’m coming from.’ And he took out my resignation, which was torn into a hundred pieces, and handed me the pile, and we just stood there looking at each other, and I finally said, 'Thank you, Gene.’ And he said, 'Thank you, Nichelle.’ and my life’s never been the same since, and I’ve never looked back, I’ve never regretted it because I understood the universe had somehow, that universal mind had somehow put me there. And we have choices, are we going to walk down this road, or are we going to walk down the other? And it was the right road for me.”

Denial [a Mick Rory imagine]

Request: Can you do mick rory x reader …Like a romantic one where he trys to deny his feelings for you

a/n: i tried therefore you can’t judge

Everybody on the Waverider knows Mick is head over heels for you. The problem is…he doesn’t want to admit it to anyone. Or himself. He would rather eat away his feelings than approach them head on.

So when Len slipped you a hint about Mick’s feelings, you needed him to confess. Entering the kitchen, you see his green jacket and hear munching sounds. You cross your arms over your chest, scrunching your pale yellow top, “I knew I’d find you in here.” you quip, peachy flats shuffling over to the counter.

He stops chewing his sandwich; meat still dangling from his pout. “Whatdya want? ’M busy.” he mutters, black gloved fingers moving around the bread. His eyes shift toward you, quickly going back to his food. Didn’t you know not to bother Mick while he’s eating?

Breathing through your nose, you lean your elbows on the smooth gray surface. You rest your chin on the back of your hand, “So…a little birdie told me something…about your feelings…regarding me?” You raise an eyebrow, smirking. You tap your fingers on the counter, making the man stare.

“Don’t know whatcha talkin’ ‘bout.” he grunts, ignoring your pointed glare.

You huff a sigh, standing up, “Mick, I know you like me.” you coo; he places his sandwich down, brushing his hands together.

His steel toe boots clomp on the ground when he gets out of his chair. He squints his eyes, staring down at you. “Maybe I do. Maybe I don’t.” He mutters under his breath. Damn feelings, making him…feel. Mick loathes feelings.

Biting your lip, you stand on your tip toes, pecking his stubble coated cheek. “Well…um. That’s how I feel, so…” you blush looking down and putting your hands in your light pale pink pockets. You don’t know what came over you. Hopefully you didn’t mess everything up.

Mick eyes widen, rubbing his gloves on his jeans. “Ya missed, doll.” He snorts, crossing his arms over his wide chest. The arsonist forces himself not to blush.

Your eyebrows furrow and you glance up, “Wha-”

His dry lips are on yours to your surprise. They don’t move until he pulls back, frowning. “Have better aim next time.”

Just Friends 1/?

I know I said fluff but the hoe jumped out of me at the end. XD By the way this is an AU. Enjoy my trash. :) 

Kendra Stewart’s morning started off early as usual but strangely enough her two-and-a-half year old hadn’t woken her up this time around. Instead, she found her playing in her room quietly. She glanced around out of confusion before scooping the little girl up. “Harpy, why didn’t you wake mama up?”

Serial Killer Calum Part 7

AN So I apologize for being an absolute fucking walnut but my computer died and they said I could either pay for a new computer or use the same amount of money and fix my old one. I’m already getting a new computer as a gift when I graduate, so it’d be pointless, so I had to find something that could suffice for now. I’m using my sister’s old shitty computer, but at least it works. That’s all I really need. Anyway! So I’ll write Demon Luke tonight, just thought I’d post this for you guys since I’ve been gone for so long. I’ll post demon luke when I get off work tonight. And I’ll try to get my mikey fanfic started, I’ve got some good ideas :) Thanks for keeping up guys, I love ya [Also I’ll answer your asks when I get home I gotta head to work] Enjoy xx

Calum’s POV

After I got Y/N’s lingerie from the place, things weren’t as awkward as before. But my thoughts would travel to the wrong places. I couldn’t help but think how fucking sexy she looked in those cheekies, how damn wonderful her boobs were held up by the matching bra. I wanted her to wear that and only that for as long as possible. But my shirt was covering her up as well as the dime store sweatpants and I wanted to rip them off. I wanted to-

“Calum,” her voice broke through my thoughts.

“What?” I blinked several times to get the image I had in my head to go away. It didn’t.
