It was the night of Bucky’s annual office party, and though the surroundings were all the usual, you were no longer present against your will. Being Bucky’s girlfriend, you attended as his date and one of his exclusive guests.

CEO!Ash - This is pure fucking filth alright

Words: 6.1k

“Miss y/n, what’s your input on this?”

You heard your colleague’s voice in the background. But you didn’t react to it. You were focused on something else. Rather someone else. Your boss, that was sitting on the other end of the table, twisting and twirling a pen between his long, slender fingers. He was completely staring at you, head cocked to one side in a rather smug attitude. He was young, not much older than you. Only by a year or two. It always amazed you how successful he was for his age, but with that charm - although he most of the time radiated arrogance… and that smile, his success did not surprise you.

You’d lie if you said you weren’t attracted to him. Hell, that man could have his way with you without you even questioning it, you wouldn’t mind at all. In fact, you wanted it. You wanted him to fuck you, and by judging the look he was giving you, you understood he knew that, too. What made your chest rise and your heartbeat increase, was the fact that he tugged on the collar of his shirt. Then, he gazed up at you again, and the look he was shooting you this time made you weak. He wanted it, too.

“Miss?” your colleague repeated.

hey guys! talking from personal experience, this time of year can be super scary for anybody looking to move into the job world. whether you’re graduating soon and need to look for full time work, looking for summer internships or placements, or just looking to get a part time job to make some money over the summer, a solid cv is crucial. so i’m gonna share some of my tips below, i work in advertising, i’ve worked most of my career in sales, and even though i’m still fresh to the working world i hope i can give you guys some employment tips! 

basic bits

  • ok, so you need to put your contact details at the top of the page, name, phone number, email address, post code and sometimes nationality are all important to get out of the way first 
  • if you have your degree grade, or expected grade, put education at the top. list your grade and the dates you studied at uni, and the grades, dates and subjects that you studied to a high level when you left school. this is less important for part time jobs so i would probably put it below the next section in those circumstances
  • past experience is next. list everywhere you’ve ever worked, whether it was a proper paid job, helping out at local events, tutoring, anything that can give insight into your skills and your character. put a couple bullet points for each job, explaining the tasks you did and what you learnt from them. the most important thing is to emphasise what skills you have and how you’ve proven them in the past. 
  • i put other experience next, generally just volunteering, if you held a responsibility role in your school you can put that here too
  • skills & interests should be another section, talking about your non work related skills (but still relating these back to working). so for me, i talk about my creative hobbies like writing and music, which are important when applying for creative industries like advertising. i also talk about teaching myself arabic and adobe creative suite because languages are useful, design skills are useful, and most crucially taking initiative and embracing opportunities to learn are essential in any job that wants to see you grow

sales tips 

  • other people applying for the same jobs as you will not be handing in a 100% truthful cv. you don’t have to lie, and you shouldn’t ever ever lie on your cv because it’s not worth getting caught out. however, you’d be smart to jazz it up a bit. 
  • every task you’ve undertaken in your life has taught you something, no matter how small. think about every job related thing you’ve ever done and think of a way to make it sound special. 
  • for instance, i manually alphabetically organised a directors business cards during an internship. it was beyond boring. yet, now i talk about being a crucial support for the team, how i took initiative in collating their contacts into a brand new filing system to increase productivity speed. any dumb task can be chatted up. 
  • sales is all about confidence, confidence, confidence. you have to believe you are a great candidate, it’ll come across in your writing 
  • keep it to one page, max 2 if you’ve had a lot of previous roles. nobody wants to read that much. if it’s looking a bit long try reformatting to keep it all looking neat and succinct. 
  • send it as a pdf, not as a word document. keeps it looking professional. 

cover letters

  • now, cover letters can be a real pain. i would suggest writing different ones for each application, even though making a generic one and editing it is easier. it’s worth it to show that you give a shit. 
  • actually, all that really matters is giving a shit. talk about how great you are, and about how much you have to offer that they need in their company. you can phrase it in a non arrogant fashion, but at the end of the day a job application isn’t the place for humility. 
  • talk about the company, talk about why you like it and why you want to be there. if you’re applying to a small company definitely chat about how great you think the business is, because chances are the people who run the company will actually see it. people who have their own company LOVE to hear people talk about loving their company and their idea. 

all that really matters

  • be genuine, be passionate, be enthusiastic about the role, about the company and about yourself.
  • stay calm and focused on your goals, and believe in yourself and your abilities. don’t be afraid of being great, and don’t be afraid of letting people know it. 

i really hope these could be of use to anybody, if there’s any tips you guys need for job huting let me know, i’ve done a lot of it!

‘Spider-Man’ Spinoff: Silver Sable, Black Cat Movie Finds Director

Gina Prince-Bythewood, who wrote and directed The Secret Life of Bees, will direct Silver and Black, Sony’s Spider-Man offshoot that centers on characters Silver Sable and the Black Cat.

Silver Sable, created by Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz in 1985, is a mercenary who runs a company that hunts war criminals. The character has been both antagonist and ally to Spider-Man.

Black Cat, an acrobatic cat burglar whose real name is Felicia Hardy, has a long and tangled romantic history with Spider-Man in the comics. The character was cut from scripts for the Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy, and a “Felicia Hardy” (played by Felicity Jones) briefly appeared in Amazing Spider-Man 2, though no Black Cat connection was ever made explicit.

Note:  This deal will make Prince-Bythewood the first black woman to direct a superhero movie, the second woman of colour (following Lexi Alexander) and the 4th woman overall to direct a live-action superhero feature film following Lexi Alexander, Patty Jenkins and Anna Boden (co-directing with Ryan Fleck).

Okay but imagine a punk Aphrodite, all tight, black leather jeans, white jack Daniels shirt and leather jacket with pastel pink hair flowing down her back. 

Activist Artemis running a shelter for abused women, contacting her sister Athena for support with legal battles. 

 Hera running a boarding school for young girls, teaching them everything from economics to ancient literature. 

Demeter running a success agriculture company with a daughter who ran away to be with a tattooed, young Hades

I work in a pet store with a free membership program. You sign up using your phone number, as we no longer provide membership cards. Signing up takes less than a minute, and allows you to get any in-store discounts, extra coupons on your receipt and in your email, and makes it so we can look up your receipts. Most people have it, or sign up for it readily.

But then there are the people who have to make everything difficult. These are their stories.

1. Asked one woman for her number, and she gave me a long lecture about how you never know who is listening in for your private information, or who ACTUALLY runs a company, and thus she NEVER gives anyone her first name, last name, or phone number. She then proceeded to hand me one of the grandfathered in membership cards; I scanned it, and… what do you know? It’s registered with her first name, last name, and phone number.

Few days later, a man chewed out my elderly (late 70s) co-worker for asking for his number, saying he “gets enough harrassment from the government as it is, thank you very much” and that he “didn’t need us calling him, too”. We don’t call or text any of these numbers. It’s literally just to look someone up.

2. Asked a man for his number, and he refused to give it to me. I wrong up his order without it; he complained about the price, so I told him without the pet perks number, he wouldn’t get any sale prices. Suddenly he was willing to give me his number, all while complaining it wasn’t “fair”.

3. Couple came in and had over $200 worth of dog supplies in their cart. I asked if they had a number, and they told me no. I told them it was fast and free to sign up; they didn’t want it. I told them they’d get no sale prices, and with that much stuff, they would certainly be losing money not having a number. Still didn’t want it.

They were amazed at how expensive their total was, compared to what they “thought” it would be; offered again to sign them up. Still didn’t want it. They probably overpaid by $50+ because they didn’t want to sign up for this.

4. Some coupons at my store can only be used once, and only by the number they were given to. Had one man come in with a coupon that didn’t match his number. I told him it wouldn’t work. He requested a new number; still didn’t work. I explained again, and he still didn’t get it, so a manager explained it to him. He left to call the relative who had given him the coupon, and came back to try more numbers. While we were trying the second one, he told me, “Well, if it doesn’t work, the lady behind me said I could try her number, too.”

YOU FOOL. IT WILL ONLY WORK FOR THE ONE NUMBER. NOT HERS. NOT A NEW NUMBER.

5. Elderly woman came in holding the membership card IN HER HAND. I could SEE my store’s name on the card. I asked if she had a number, and she told me no. I asked again, “Are you SURE you don’t have a membership card?”; she again, angrily, told me no. I offered to try her phone number, to which she explained “I NEVER give ANYONE my number.” Rang her up without it. She complained she didn’t get the sale prices. Informed her those were “for members only”. While still holding the card, she informed me again she “never signs up for things like that” and stormed out.

You whine as you pulled the hem of your body con dress downwards to make it seem longer than it was. Your roommate convinced you to wear this dress that one was size down your usual so that it would “hug your curves in all the right places”, and though you didn’t think of it much before you left your apartment, about two hours later into Natasha’s office party, you were beginning to regret your decision.

When Jared Kleinman had suggested that you, Connor and Evan go to the waterpark to relax and make the best out of the final days of Summer, you had immediately thought it was a great idea. Spending a day with your boyfriends, just escaping all the stress and other shit that was cluttering your mind was exactly what you needed, and while it took a bit of… convincing to get Connor on board with the idea, he was prompted to say yes when you and the two other boys promised him to make it worth-while for him. It didn’t hurt your case when you reminded him of the prospect of seeing you running around in a bikini.

Hey!! Could you do a Tommy/ reader imagine were the reader own her own business and Tommy and the brothers wants to do business with her and she’s super feisty and doesn’t take sh*t from anyone and he’s mesmerised by her? Thank you!

Running a business wasn’t easy. Being a woman and running your own business was even harder - especially in a man’s world.It was rare when men who did the same took you seriously. It was why you were so feisty and stand-off-ish. It was rare when you actually made businesses deals but you would hold a meeting out of courtesy. Today you were meeting with the brothers who ran Shelby Limited, a company that was known for being run by the Peaky Blinders and illegal. You weren’t sure who the brothers were as you were pretty new to Small Heath.

You were from France and had came to Birmingham looking for a new start and ended up starting your own business. Your business was one for transporting alcohol to America where they were dealing with prohibition. It was a guaranteed way to make money. You’re secretary walked into your office asking if he could let in the Shelby brothers. You put away your books and locked them in the drawer before nodding.

Within the next minute, you had three men in peaky caps and suits sitting in front of you. You extended your hand over your desk and the man in the middle took it, giving it a shake.

“Boys, it’s nice to meet you,” You said as you offered your hand to the other two.

It took a few seconds for Natasha’s words to sink in.

Her boss. Her fucking boss. You knew Natasha was the CEO’s executive assistant, so this means that this James Barnes–kind, charming, unrealistically cute stranger to you just a few seconds ago–was the CEO.

You just couldn’t believe it. You didn’t know whether to laugh or to run away out of humiliation because you basically just told the person paying for everything that his party sucked!

You silently begged for the walls to close in on you or for the ground to swallow you whole right then and there.

Gina Prince-Bythewood Set To Direct Spider-Man-Spun ‘Silver & Black’

EXCLUSIVE: Sony Pictures is setting Gina Prince-Bythewood to direct Silver & Black, the film that is based on Silver Sable & Black Cat (aka Felicia Hardy) characters from Sony’s Marvel Universe revolving around its signature hero Spider-Man.  Prince-Bythewood just directed the pilot for Marvel’s upcoming Cloak & Dagger series on Freeform and completed the first season of Shots Fired, the drama she created with husband Reggie Rock Bythewood. That season-ender aired Wednesday on Fox. She will rewrite the Silver & Black script originated by Thor: The Dark World scribe Christopher Yost.  Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal are producing, and Columbia Pictures execs Palak Patel and Eric Fineman are overseeing.

Silver Sable is a mercenary who runs a company that hunts war criminals while Black Cat is an acrobatic cat burglar (real name Felicia Hardy), who had a tangled romantic relationship with the webslinger in the Spider-Man comics. Both were antagonists and allies to Spider-Man. This film will cast up and is meant to follow Venom, the Spider-Man universe expansion film that will star Tom Hardy with Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer directing. Spider-Man: Homecoming, the Jon Watts-directed film that stars Tom Holland as high school student Peter Parker and his superhero alter ego, bows July 7.

On the feature front, Prince-Bythewood has directed and written Beyond The Lights, Love & Basketball and The Secret Life of Bees,  and she becomes the latest female filmmaker to be set to direct a superhero film, a trend that started with Patty Jenkins helming Wonder Woman, which Warner Bros/DC opens June 2. Sony separately this week dated two other films directed by women, the  Michelle MacLaren-directed The Nightingale and the Elizabeth Banks-directed Charlie’s Angels, right after the studio set Catherine Hardwicke for the Gina Rodriguez-starrer Miss Bala. Barbie will also be directed by a woman, and the studio has Lucia Aniello directing Rough Night, its first R-rated comedy in two decades directed by a female. CAA reps Prince-Bythewood.

Sneak peek: Michael Keaton a flying fiend as everyman ‘Spider-Man’ villain

He might have a cool name but Michael Keaton’s bad guy in Spider-Man: Homecoming (in theaters July 7) differs from the likes of Avengers villains Loki and Thanos in one important sense: He’s an everyman.

“My whole approach for this movie is that we’ve seen the penthouse level of the (Marvel) universe,” says director Jon Watts (Cop Car). “We’ve seen what it’s like to be a billionaire inventor and to be a Norse god. We’ve seen the very top of this world. But we’ve never seen what it’s like to be just a regular joe.”

Fourteen previous Marvel films have seen a number of huge superhero battles leave a ton of destruction in their wake, and Adrian Toomes (Keaton) is a blue-collar sort who runs a New York salvaging company that cleans up after these messes. However, he becomes irked when after one altercation, a new government organization, founded by A-list businessman Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), steps in to take over.

Toomes “has a bone to pick” with Iron Man’s high-profile alter ego, says co-producer Eric Hauserman Carroll, and “sort of becomes the dark Tony Stark”: He and his crew — including the Shocker (Bokeem Woodbine) and the Tinkerer (Michael Chernus) — use scavenged alien artifacts and stolen advanced tech to put together amazing weaponry to sell to other criminals. “He thinks once he has this money and power, he’ll have more control of his life,” Carroll adds. However, it doesn’t take too long before they get on the radar of their friendly neighborhood Spider-Man (Tom Holland).

“Some people see themselves as victims — he sees himself a little bit like that,” Keaton says of Toomes. “He probably would have a strong argument that he never got a fair shot — a lot of ‘Why not me? Where’s mine?’ ”

“I like the idea that in these huge movies, you pick out one extra and you’re like, ‘What does he think of all this?’ ” Watts says. “Sometimes these movies are so casual about just destroying whole cities and incredible things happen and everyone’s like, ‘Eh, whatever.’ If that really happened, it would be amazing and change everything.”Plus, with his new baddie Watts gets to use “this neat junk from all the other movies,” he says. “It’s a really great starting point for the villains to have the Vulture picking over the stuff and finding the valuable exotic elements and having the Tinkerer assemble into something that could be used.”The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a place “where you can be a villain and a real person, too,” Watts says. “Being a supervillain isn’t necessarily your full-time job.”
