The ballroom was extravagant to say the least. The room had a high ceiling, chandeliers made out of crystals that even one was probably worth more than your entire apartment complex. And then there was the floor length dress you were wearing. The dress’s open back and plunging neckline added with it’s shade of black that contradicted with the bright colors other women were in were sure to draw your target’s eyes. Which is exactly what you needed.

Damian as TT Animated Robin

Robin’s family was a bit of a mystery. The Teen Titans knew and respected that as best they could. It was just hard sometimes.

Or: five times the Teen Titans wondered about Dick Grayson without knowing they were wondering about Dick Grayson.

TT AU with Damian as 16 y/o TT!Robin, mostly grown up and much more comfortable than his eleven year old canon self.


Starfire and Raven were the two newest to the world—growing up in another dimension or another planet entirely was definitely a pretty good way to avoid TV news and pop culture.

While Raven put effort into getting to know her new world, it was a rather localized affair. She made a point of knowing what nightclubs and cafes had open poetry mics, an overview of the governmental systems currently in place, how to obtain a library card, and other such things that directly affected her day-to-day existence. Starfire seemed to enjoy the thrill of discovery and the inevitable subsequent sharing of culture that would occur whenever her teammates discovered something she had not previously encountered, and likewise enjoyed telling her teammates of similar practices on Tamaran, or the lack of them, as the case may have been.

Usually, their lack of connection with Earth culture (and very specifically, urban, Pacific Coast, United States culture) meant very little in the grand scheme of things. If they were caught off balance, most civilians gave them a pass because slightly strange faux pas were hardly the worst or strangest thing costumed heroes had done, and the Titans at least were sanctioned. Someone would explain things, get it all cleared up within a few minutes, and any destruction of property was written off and paid for in the cash pool specifically set aside for the inevitable accidents a group of superheroes would cause. So long as their mistakes didn’t cost anyone their lives there was compensation, and the lack of Earth knowledge was an eternal work-in-progress.

All things considered, it should have been expected that neither Raven nor Starfire knew about Nightwing.

Webtoons?

ok so I’ve been going on a webtoon rampage lately so I’m wondering is there anyone else in this lonely world who reads:

  • One Last God Kubera
  • Tower of God
  • Divine/Godly Bells
  • The Flow
    Black Haze
  • God of High School***
  • unTouchable***
  • Automata***
  • The Gamer***
  • City of the Dead Sorcerer***
  • Abide in the Wind***
  • Gepetto***
  • Oh, My God!***
  • Dal-Sez***

Recs are also welcome!

(Huh, they really like “god” in their names….)

edit: I’m adding *** to the webtoons I don’t follow anymore.

BotW wtf...

So… first I somehow wound up in Zora’s Domain instead of Kakariko, evidently bypassing it completely.

I got lost in ZD about twice somehow trying to find the shrine cause I couldn’t remember where it was in ZD. 

I journey on, got a horse and was riding to a stable, somehow got turned around and wound up back where I caught my horse. 

I go with my horse Quasi set on Kakariko, I wind up in Hateno Village instead eVEN WITH A MAP. 

So, I’m learning that no one should ever ask me for directions cause evidently I have no sense of direction and probably shouldn’t travel alone. Ever. 

Watch on the-earth-story.com

I grew up in the Chicago area, so this clip of fog blowing through my city viewed from the Hancock Building observation deck remains one of my favorite Vines.

Hello friends! Guess who’s back? Spoiler - it’s me. So I have a confession - I love soulmate AUs. I’ve not written Pietro in a while so I eased myself into this by focusing predominantly on another character. It needs a second part to finish it off which I’ll upload soon. Hopefully the plot is twisty and interesting enough for you guys. Thanks to @sxnali for the request; I loved it. Enjoy, my darlings!

Prompt[s]: (if you don’t mind) can you do a soulmate au where the first words they say to each other are tattooed somewhere on the other’s body? with pietro please? (im sorry if this sent twice i think i hit send in the middle of typing this but im not sure oops)

‘Almost a Mistake’ (Part 1)

There was a reason that New York was considered the city that never sleeps. Regardless of the hour, life was buzzing, left, right, and centre. Cars clamoured the roads in lines of traffic, and birds flew overhead, seeking and taking every opportunity amongst the crowds of hungry people that swarmed the streets.

The smell of hot dogs was prominent – especially on a Saturday when everyone and his mate was out on the streets. You wished that you could say you too had come out for fun but work had called you in for overtime, and the coming winter’s energy bills convinced you to take it.

With your headphones safely nestled on your head, you navigated the bustling tourists with your eyes on your iPod, trying to pick the best tune for the next leg of your journey. You’d splashed out on new headphones and for good reason – there were noise cancelling. As far as you were concerned, that made them worth the cost, tuning out the soundtrack of the city as you walked.

Each time you skipped a song, there was a moment of quiet where the world bled in. You heard horns beeping, steps smacking against the pavement, and even someone shouting in the distance. Probably a food vendor trying to sell to a passer-by. You skipped another song and got another flash of reality. Cooing pigeons, roaring engines, and still a person shouting. It was definitely male, and getting closer.

Words masked as poetry
Sent into the winds
Between the towers
Reaching for the skies

Filled with hope
Armed with courage
Enveloped with promises
Surrounded by apologies

The winds never cease
They wait – for a moment
And sometimes more
But, they never cease

Words masked as poetry
Sent into the winds
Between the towers
Reaching for the skies

I offer you this
For your silences
Are all that I hold
Closer than ever

  • Connie: Steven, remember last year when I built that model wind tower for you and you wrote those poems for me?
  • Steven: And you said you'd never switch homework assignments with me again.
  • Connie: For good reason. My teacher had a hard time believing I wrote "Tra-la the joy of tulips blooming, Ha-ha the thrill of bumblebees zooming. I'm alive and I dance, I'm alive though death is always looming." When I finally convinced her that I had, she asked me if I needed to talk to the school counselor.

A/N:
I’m not sure if this will be a series, please tell me if you want a second part


Summary:
During the saddest part of your life,  you made the biggest decision ever.


It all started with three simple, but meaningful words. Something that you hoped to hear, but now when you look back, you wish you never did. It was amazing while it lasted and as fast it started, it ended as well.


Taking a deep breath you moved your hand higher. You were climbing on the Avengers tower. The wind almost knocked you away a couple of times.

˝Next time, you are doing this Wade. ˝ You said into your earpiece. Hearing his laugh, you rolled your eyes. You were already on the thirtieth floor, almost on the roof. After a while you finally climbed on the solid ground. You sat down catching your breath and looking down over the edge.
