Dong Wook. It was so nice working with you.I hope we can work in another drama again. I miss you.
- Mr Goblin, Gong Yoo hyung. We had beautiful days. I wasn’t lonely, thanks to you. If we could work together again. I think we can have more fun.
What I’ve discovered is that in art, as in music, there’s a lot of truth - and then there’s a lie. The artist is essentially creating his work to make this lie a truth, but he slides it in amongst all the others. The tiny little lie is the moment I live for; my moment. It’s the moment that the audience falls in love.
Summary:Modern AU. An artist in every sense of the word, Bucky sees color in everything, vibrant as they fill his world with magic. What happens when the colors fade? - @mellifluous-melodramas
Note:Really Bella? Another series? Yes. Another series. I am irresponsible and have zero impulse control.
Five words. That’s all it took it break Bucky’s heart.
Five small words that held so much weight that they crushed him entirely on what should have been the best night of his life. He could hear them echoing around in his head, drowning out any other thought he could possibly have. Her voice was all he could hear, even though the words hadn’t been spoken. That part almost made it worse, that he had to guess at what she was feeling. Was she sad? Relieved? Angry? He played the words with different inflections, different tones, even though he should’ve known that she would’ve sounded just as indifferent as her text message felt.
I can’t do this anymore.
That’s all she had said. “I can’t do this anymore.” She didn’t care. She was just done.
Summary: Next to the restaurant that well-known Mob Boss, Armitage Hux, frequents and owns, is your bakery shop. After a rather unfortunate occurence, Hux begins to frequent to your bakery more often.
A/N: FINALLY adding my contribution to the Mob Party. And yes. ANOTHER series. LEAVE ME ALONE. I NEEDED TO GET THIS OUT OF MY HEAD, OKAY?!
Hux inhaled the cigarette smoke then exhaled. The smoke clouding his vision then floating up into the air, “So, Thanisson, you’re telling me that this little Resistance gang held you and the rest of my men at gunpoint as they took my money to then climb to the top of the buildings and throw it into the air for measly civilians to get a hold of it?”
The young man gulped, “Yes, sir. There were too many of them. We were surrounded. We couldn’t fight them off.”
“Couldn’t? Or wouldn’t?” Thanisson gulped again, but gave no answer. Hux sighed and set his cigarette onto the ash tray on the table, “Thanisson, you’re a young boy. I see myself in you. You’re very determined to rise up in the ranks.” Hux stood up and buttoned his suit jacket and leaned over the table, “But you have no spine.” Mitaka came up behind Hux and slipped on his black greatcoat. He then handed him black leather gloves, which Hux slipped on. “However, because I see myself in you, I’ll give you another chance.” Thanisson exhaled a breath of relief, “But fail me again, I will not hesitate to have you killed. Understand?”
Thanisson nodded, “Y-Yes, sir.”
“Good.” Hux nodded and then left the restaurant leaving the young boy shaking in his knock-off Louis Vuitton shoes.
Hux’s right hand and body guard, Kylo Ren, followed Hux out the door and towards the waiting car, “I think you’re going soft. You usually would kill right off the bat.”
Hux rolled his eyes as he buttoned his coat, “Don’t give me that, Ren. I’m sure you’ve noticed that the number of men I have is diminishing. I have to be careful or else this Resistance will overrule me.” Before Hux stepped into the black SUV, he caught a whiff of something sweet. It reminded him of the muffins his childhood nanny used to make him. His eyes glanced to the bakery next door. He felt a pull. Hux glanced at Kylo and said, “Wait, here. I’ll be back.”
“A bakery? Really, Hux?”
“It’ll only be a moment.” Hux sneered. He made his way to the warm yellow building. A sign in cursive read: Made with Love Bakery. Hux opened the door and stepped in. He was greeted to warmth and the smell of sugar.
“I’ll be out in a second!” He heard a young woman’s voice come from, what he assumed, the kitchen. Seconds later, you came out wearing a sky blue apron holding a tray of fresh blueberry muffins wearing matching sky blue oven mittens. You set the tray on the counter and gave an exhausted sigh, “Sorry for the wait! I’m Y/N! How may I help you?”
Hux couldn’t help but softly smile. Your smile was contatious, “I couldn’t help, but catch a whiff of something that I believe are blueberry muffins.”
“Well, you have a mighty nose there, Mister Hux. Just took them out of the oven.”
Hux’s smile faltered, “You know who I am?”
You chuckled, “How could I not? You’re Armitage Hux, Mob Boss as well as owner of the First Order restaurant next door.”
“And you’re not scared of me?”
You shook your head, “You haven’t done anything to me that could make me scare of you…yet.” The last part you said with a chuckle, “But anyway, did you want some muffins? While they’re still fresh?”
Hux nodded, “If you’d be so kind.”
You nodded. You picked up two muffins and set them in a small warm yellow box that matched the outside of your building. You also poured some fresh hot chocolate into a to go cup. You slid them over the desk, “Here you go, sir.”
“How much do I owe you?”
You shook your head, “Free of charge, sir.”
“No, I can’t. Surely I could-”
“I always give newcomers their order free. I also provided the hot chocolate since it looks pretty cold out. Figured you’d want to keep warm.”
“Thank you, Y/N. I appreciate it.” Hux opened the box and took a small piece from a muffin and popped it into his mouth. He hummed at the warmth and the familiar taste, “I feel like a child again.”
You laughed, “Oh really? And why is that?”
“My childhood nanny, that I was incredibly fond of, would always make blueberry muffins. They were heavenly. Yours taste just like them.”
“Well thank you for your high praises, sir.”
“Please, no need for formalities. Just call me Hux.”
You nodded, “Thank you, Hux.”
Hux closed the box, “I’ll leave you to continue your work. Enjoy the rest of your day, Y/N.”
“You as well, Hux!”
Hux walked back to the waiting SUV with hot chocolate and muffins in hand. When he slipped into the car, Kylo gave him a questionable look. Hux glared at him, “Don’t question me, Ren.”
“She was attractive, the shop girl. Will you see her again?”
Hux wanted to say yes, but he didn’t want to give Kylo the satisfaction of knowing he’s gone soft. Therefore, he simply muttered, “We’ll see.”
Relationships: Peter Parker x fem!Stark!reader,Tony Stark x Reader (father-daughter relationship)
Warnings: Light cussing, tons of fluff :)
Summary: Over the Summer Tony decides to have Peter come to the Avengers facility for a little “Summer camp” to help train him to be a hero. Peter comes ready to become an Avenger, but he didn’t expect to fall in love with with his mentor’s adopted daughter along the way…
A/N: Yes I know another Peter series! Don’t worry I’m still working on Partner’s in (Fighting) Crime, but I’m having a little bit of writers block for it at the moment, and I had this idea rattling around in my head and thought it might be nice to write so I thought I’d give it a shot! Please read and let me know what you think!
“This is so amazing this is going to be the best Summer ever!” Peter exclaims as he runs out of the car and Happy gets his bags out of the trunk of the car.
“Yeah it sure will be.” Happy grunts and Peter rushes over and helps Happy out with the bags. “A whole Summer spent with you. Good times…” He groans and walks up the steps of the Avengers facility with Peter.
Peter was practically exploding with excitement and happiness once he was inside. Sure he had been here before and even turned down Tony’s offer to be an Avenger but this was different. He wasn’t being pressured into anything this Summer. He was just going to be training with the team to hone in on his skills a bit more before school started again. He walked by the training facility and looked inside and smiled.
“Wow…” He says and watches Iron Man and War Machine train in the big room through the window. “This is gonna be so awesome!” He squeals and hops a little bit. Happy sighs and rolls his eyes.
“What is awesome?” Vision asks and goes through the wall, making Peter scream and jump onto Happy, in turn making Happy scream.
Can I please request fluffy headcanons with the reader + Cygate?
( Melly’s Mod Notes: Coming right up! Feel free to send requests involving a ship and the reader since these are a delight to write for me. )
✦ It’s Tailgate who falls for the human first. At first he notices them because smaller than him and that makes them super cute in his optics already. What has him coming back for more than just cuddles is their easy laughter, their warm eyes, and their funny sense of humour. (Even if they need to explain half the jokes to him. They don’t mind at all and their patience helps him fall for them a little bit more.)
✦ Cyclonus, at first, only tolerates the human’s presence when they begin to hang out with Tailgate and him from time to time. They’re nice enough, he supposes, and at least Tailgate wasn’t exaggerating about how their face lights up when they smile and how soft and gentle their movements are when being careful and… and… oh no. When the human begins to spend time with him, and only him, this when he gets flustered and realises he’s in love with them.
✦ The human falls for the two later on and now they all have feelings for each other but are rather shy to admit it in fear of hurting the others’ feelings one way or another. The rest of Lost Light is frustrated by the awkward dance of expectations and silences because no no no no. They don’t want to go through this again. Tailgate and Cyclonus pining after each other was bad enough as is. In the end it’s Rung who pulls the human aside, suggesting perhaps they take the plunge after he gently points out the glaringly obvious signs of love and affection the pair hold for them and vice versa. Rung is a saint.
✦ The human sits the the pair down and admits their feelings to the couple, stumbling over their words now and then but their sincerity, their love for them is plain as day at the end. After a moment has passed, Cyclonus will gather up his courage and reach out to hold both the human’s hand and Tailgate’s. He may not be great with words but actions? That he can do. Tailgate is just so excited and happy over these turn of events that he’s. He’s only able to make little beep! noises for the rest of the night cycle and it absolutely melts the human’s and Cyclonus’ hearts. They must protect this marshmallow at all costs.
✦ Speaking of protection: The human is the most protected organic ever whenever shore leave happens. Between Tailgate’s raw strength and Cyclonus’ refined skills, nothing and no one will lay a hand on the human and the two ‘bots will make sure of that.
✦ Cyclonus approached their human with the proposition that they, perhaps, move in with them. The human agrees and now one whole wall in the habsuite is dedicated to photos of the trio’s adventures together. Some photos mysteriously disappear now and then. Both the human and Tailgate pretend to not notice that and the fact Cyclonus seems to be hiding some things under his pillow. Hmmmm.
✦ The pair take turns on who gets to cuddle their human for the night so they’re nice and warm during the cycle, it’s one of the favourite past times for the three of them. Also Cyclonus will deny being a cuddler but Tailgate and the human know the truth. He gives the second best cuddles out of everyone on the Lost Light.
✦ Sometimes, the last thing the human sees before drifting off to sleep is Cyclonus and Tailgate reaching out to hold the other’s servo. It always puts a smile on their face.
Summary: (College!AU) Y/N and Bucky, one of her close friends (whom she might like a teeny tiny bit), realise they might be able to help each other out with each their own assignments, much to the amusement of the rest of the group.
“Just ask her already!” Steve mutters, elbowing Bucky’s side. You turn around from the hob just in time to see Bucky glare daggers at Steve.
“Ask who, what?” you ask, picking up a nearby towel and drying your hands.
“Well, I need, uh, I need help with an art project,” Bucky says. He explains his request in greater detail. Each word he says causes the hair on your arms to stand up and your cheeks to warm up.
“Uh…” you stutter, trying to think of a response. “Surely there are plenty of other girls who would be more…. suited to the task,” you say, giving him a small, tight-lipped smile, before making your way out of the room.
“Wait! Maybe we can help each other out,” he calls. You stop in your tracks, turning around.
The sheer ring of a bell wakes you from
your haze of concentration, and you look down at what you’ve drawn. Wrinkling
your nose in disgust, you quickly place the sheet of paper in your folder and
close it. You pick up your supplies and put them in your bag, before zipping it
up and slipping the bag on. You give the instructor a brief nod and a
tight-lipped smile as you walk past her. Glancing at your watch, you see it’s
half past eleven.
out through the door of the building and breath in the sharp, cool, night air.
It’s dark. You can just about see the streetlights on the main street from
where you are, but you’re still a fair bit away. You pull out your phone.
the contact on your phone and hold it close to your ear as you hear the familiar
buzz, telling you the phone is ringing.
“Hey, what’s up?”
coming from your phone startles you.
Steve,” you reply, practically seeing the grin on his face. You can’t help but
smile. “What are you guys up to?”
hear Bucky and Sam doing stuff in the background, and knowing it’s Friday, God
only knows what they have planned.
Okay the more I think about it the more pissed I get over the fact that sjm decided to make Kaltain and Celaena enemies rather than friends. I’m literally fuming at the lost potential and sheer disregard for either character. I mean think about it.
They both would’ve succeeded in more ways than one if they had decided to befriend each other. Kaltain would’ve avoided falling into Perringtons clutches in com if she had celaena (and consequently Dorian and chaol) supporting her. Celaena wouldve learned the ins and outs of court politics and diplomacy, something she has zero knowledge of even now.
Celaena could’ve taught Kaltain how to defend herself so that she could escape from the palace when chaol did. Kaltain could’ve discretely offered Celaena the protection of house Rompier when she came back from Wendlyn. If they’d become friends Celaena would have more than one ally in Adarlan, something she desperately needs if she wants to take back the throne of Terrasen. I mean their friendship would’ve come with some serious political advantages as well as giving each woman a meaningful relationship.
I mean jfc Celaena can have more than one female friend at a time and like imagine how different this series would be if they had dropped the whole fighting-over-Dorian bullshit and sought out each other for companionship.
First of all Dorian wouldn’t have been left completely alone at the end of qos and Kaltain would probably talk some sense into him when he was gonna do something impulsive or stupid. Not only that but when Celaena would go back to Terrasen she’d have support from a powerful Adarlanian family (who would influence other houses to pledge their support as well) and legitimize her claim to the throne (in adarlan anyways).
Celaena could’ve also taught Kaltain how to use her magic for gods sake. The both have abilities that stem from fire; Celaena could’ve taught her how to use her flames. Kaltain would’ve called out rowan on his bullshit (and maybe set him on fire) and would’ve actually talked to Celaena about all the shit she went through in Wendlyn and remind her that she doesn’t have to become someone else in order to be a great leader.
The low-key misogyny happening in this series ended up hurting the female characters more than anything else. I mean goddamn I’m literally flabbergasted by this WHY WERENT THEY FRIENDS
There’s a prophecy in the book series (yes, another prophecy - I like prophecies, blame Buffy). In Dany’s vision in the House of the Undying, she actually sees her brother Rhaegar and he says,
“The dragon has three heads."
Many have taken this to mean, three dragons and three riders. I briefly touched on this in my post introducing Dany’s dragons - one of the theories was that, Tyrion is a Targaryen and he’d be riding Viserion.
But minus that storyline being absolutely huge (plus already done with Jon/Aegon) and probably too much for the final series.
Viserion is now an Ice Dragon. It wouldn’t make sense for Tyrion to ride him now. He has zero ties with Ice.
But I can think of two people who do have ties with Ice. Jon/Aegon (I don’t know what to call him now) and Bran Stark.
One of which, we know can warg into other people and animals. What’s to say when the previous Three-Eyed Raven said this:
“You’ll never walk again, but you will fly.”
That he didn’t mean Bran would be the third rider? He didn’t say anything about him physically riding anything, just that he’d fly.
Makes sense, right? It’d be a nice link up between Ice and Fire:
Jongdae is part of Sigma-Mu, one of the most notorious fraternities on the university. Being part of it basically involves lots of partying, lots of getting drunk, and lots of girls. Lots of it. He’s in his 4th year now, starting his master degree in psychology, and when he decides to move out of the dorm house he doesn’t get what he expected. You didn’t expect to get roomed up with a boy either, but he’s cute, and he’s nice. And you couldn’t care less as long as he behaves. However, his fraternity is notorious for it’s escapades and you didn’t need that at all. Especially since you just joined Xi-Chi-Phi, your mother’s old sorority, Sigma-Mu’s sister. However Jongdae might not be what you thought he was.
