request: “Could you write a Cisco imagine where the reader is a banshee (it’s irish mythology, one of the characters in Teen Wolf is a banshee I believe?) but was a singer before the particle accelerator exploded. She can’t sing with knocking people out so she goes to S.T.A.R. Labs for help. Cisco is an insanely huge fan of the reader and is completely star struck when he sees her. Thanks so much! Sorry that request was so long, you can probably tell how much I’ve thought about this lmao.” — by anon
a/n: i am very familiar with the banshee bc i used to watch teen wolf ((but stopped at like s3 bc i started watching another tv series lol)) so i think i got this right ahaha. also, i don’t mind if requests are so long bc it actually helps me write since you’re giving out full details, so thank you and i hope you like this! p.s. i know this took so long i’m so sorry omg.
You lay there alone in your room, listening to the radio with your eyes closed. The radio host was discussing different topics about music that involved various artists, and you couldn’t help but suddenly open your eyes when you heard your name being mentioned.
“Well, folks, we all know that the amazing Y/N Y/L/N is no longer in the music industry since she was hit by the dark matter from the particle accelerator explosion in Central City.”
“What a shame. I’m a huge fan of her music!”
“Who isn’t? Honestly, I think she should continue doing her thing despite what happened.”
“James, are you stupid? Your ears will literally bleed if she does that, and not because of her singing.” the other radio host laughed.
In annoyance, you abruptly shut the radio down and continued to lay there motionless, just thinking about what your life had been before it became messed up because of what happened to you nine months ago.
You used to be one of the most successful singers out there, but especially in Central City. It was the place where your talent first bloomed and was recognized, and so as thanks, you never decided to leave it no matter how many concerts or tours you had around the world. But when the particle accelerator explosion happened, you suddenly wished that you have never resided in Central City in the first place.
Because of what you heard on the radio, you abruptly grabbed the calling card inside your pocket that you always kept in case you finally got the guts to do it. The name of Caitlin Snow glowed in the dark room, making you purse your lips at the thought of suddenly changing your mind again. With a shake of your head, you grabbed your phone from the bedside table and called.
Dr. Caitlin Snow was more than delighted when she heard your recognizable voice from the other line, even stuttering because of how much she idolized you that the thought of even talking to you still wasn’t processing clearly inside her head, not more than helping you with your condition.
As of the moment, you just got out of the elevator, leading to the cortex of S.T.A.R. Labs. A very cute boy greeted you with an enthusiastic grin, causing you to awkwardly wave.
“Uh, hi, you must be Cisco Ramon.” you extended a hand.
Cisco now had his mouth hanging open. He quickly composed himself when you looked down at your still outstretched hand.
“I’m sorry, it’s just that — you know me?” he chuckled. “The Y/N Y/L/N knows me. Just ordinary me. Your ordinary science nerd. You know me.” he repeated.
You snorted. “Yeah, well you’re one of the science nerds that are going to help me so don’t think too low about yourself.” you felt his warm hand against yours.
The sound of heels clicking caused the both of you to look sideways to see who it was, seeing Caitlin Snow approach the two of you.
“Ms. Y/N Y/L/N, it is an honor to see you up close. I’m a huge fan and honestly, I think I’ve actually listened to all of your albums nonstop.”
“Actually,” Cisco cut in, “I’m the one who introduced you to Caitlin so …”
You laughed lightly at his adorableness. “Either way, thank you to the both of you, and for also considering to take me in.”
They started walking, you following close beside them.
“Oh, it’s no problem. It’s always a good thing to help someone.”
“Especially if it’s you.” Cisco smiled.
“Thanks, Cisco. That’s very nice of you.” you returned the gesture.
Cisco widened his eyes and nudged Caitlin, “She just thanked and complimented me. This is the best day of my life.” he whispered, not knowing that you heard it all.
Caitlin rolled her eyes, “So, Ms. Y/L/N —”
“Please, just call me Y/N.” you insisted.
“Y/N,” Caitlin grinned. “We’re just gonna run a few tests on you, but before we can do that, we would like to know if the rumors were true.”
“Not that if they were, we would kick you out.” Cisco clarified.
You nodded. “Sure, why don’t we go outside?”
The two scientists led you somewhere outside again, and while the three of you were inside the elevator, you can’t help but notice Cisco stealing a lot of glances towards yours way. If he wasn’t so cute, you would have thought it was weird and a tad bit disturbing. But nonetheless, you were used with the gawking.
Caitlin seem to notice the staring as well, causing her to hardly nudge Cisco on the ribs.
“If you don’t stop, she’ll run away.” she quietly murmured to her friend but was heard by you.
You rose your eyebrows, “Oh, I don’t mind.” you suddenly spoke which caused them to turn around and look at you.
Cisco smirked, “See, she doesn’t mind.” he told Caitlin before turning back to you, wearing his famous boyish grin.

For all of his healthy optimism, I can’t help but always see Sam as the troubled baby boy. Somehow this put him into a world of 90′s grunge, classic rock and the occasional side note of odd.
