Prompt list (now accepting Sam Holland requests)

A silent tear rolled down your cheek and dropped onto the already damp shirt of Tom Holland, lying in your lap gasping for air. The bullet hole in the red and blue suit he was wearing, became more and more red than blue as his blood seeped through the material.
“No Peter, You can’t die. Please don’t die. I need you.” Tom continued to wretch and gasp for air as he keeled over and blood ran from the corner of his mouth. He turned back to you and locked eyes, his brown ones danced with fear as they searched your face for the truth.
“You need me?” He questioned a look of longing appeared on his face. “I don’t think I’m going to make it.”
“No.” you said firmly, “you’re going to,” and you looked up into the blazing spotlight mimicking the suns rays on set.
“And CUT!” The director yelled from his chair. “That’s a wrap on the Infinity War! Thank you all so much for being part of this production!” An eruption of cheers made its way throughout the studio as you and Tom got out of your scene positions.
“That was a great scene Tom, I can’t believe we are done.”
“I know,” said Tom nonchalantly, “you’ll get used to this eventually.” You nodded as four makeup stylists came to remove the special effects from your bodies and to wipe away the fake blood. Tom turned to you and you couldn’t help but giggle at the fact that his face was being pulled every which way by makeup wipes.
“What do you say we go out to dinner tonight?” Tom asked suddenly.
“To celebrate?”
“Uh- yeah to celebrate.” Tom replied with wariness. “I’ll text you the details, right now I have to get this sticky suit off of me.” You nodded in reply as you were continually poked and prodded by the stylists. You watched Tom walk off to his trailer. Damn. You hated to see him leave but loved to watch him go.

Once you were back in your trailer, you turned on your speaker and hopped in the shower, letting the steam melt away the stress of the day. Your muscles released their tension as you let the hot water cleanse the places you wouldn’t allow the makeup wipes to reach. Rhianna’s Umbrella came on your speaker and you couldn’t help but laugh, Tom coming to mind. You really wish you could pull off that wig as well as he did. You mentally made a note to tease him at dinner about it. The hot water ran cold as you started thinking about dinner. There were other members of the cast. It wasn’t just you and Tom. Surely he would have invited them too. If it was just you two, was it a date? Or was it just two friends out at dinner. You stepped out of the shower and wrapped a towel around your middle and went on a hunt for something to wear. Was it formal? Was it casual? Was it burgers and fries or some $70 crab leg? You saw Tom’s name pop up on your phone thrown on your couch.
“Dinner tonight at 7:30. I’ll pick you up at 7. Dress fancy. Location is a surprise ;)”
What a fucker.
You riffled through your closet hoping to find something appropriate for you to wear. But not too appropriate, if you know what I mean.
“Damn it y/n! This is your first time on a movie set. You don’t need to hook up with your co-star! You shouldn’t be that girl!” You openly said to yourself.
A light knock on your door startled you and you were suddenly very aware of your stark nakedness.
“Hang on one second!” you frantically yelled. What if it was Tom?
“It’s just me!” Zendaya called back.
“Oh okay, I’m naked don’t come in.” You were glad that you had reached that level of comfort with her. As soon as you met on set the first day of production, you two clicked as if you had been friends since grade school. A minute or two later Zendaya popped her head in the door.
“All clear? I’m not in the mood to be flashed today.”
“Mhm” You mumbled back pulling your shirt over your head. She strolled into your kitchenette and started opening the cupboards; clearly in search of food.
“Time to go grocery shopping?” you questioned in a laughing tone.
“I swear, everyone comes into my trailer and eats my food. Is it really that hard to go to the store? There’s one about 5 minutes down the road from HERE.” She heightened her voice when she found a box of crackers and popped one in her mouth.
“I would love to accompany you to the store tonight, but I have plans.” You replied in a sly tone, as you worked a comb through your hair in the bathroom. You heard fast paced foot steps towards the you. She swung her head around the frame of the bathroom door.

“I know that tone. Oh. My. God. Are you going out with who I think you’re going out with?”
“Okay okay relax, I know it sounds crazy; this whole thing is undefined. I have no idea whether we are going out as friends or something more then that. I guess I’ll find out tonight!” Zendaya grabbed your hands and you guys jumped up and down together as if you were in second grade.
“What are you going to wear?” She asked pressingly. “Is it casual or fancy?”
“He told me it was fancy, can you see if you can find anything in my closet that might be close to acceptable? I don’t think I have time to run back to the hotel.”
“You know who does? This girl. I did have a date with Netflix tonight, but I think he’ll understand.” Zendaya snickered.

A life time later - or so it seemed - Zendaya came knocking on your trailer door again. You had lightly curled you hair and it fell in beachy waves over your shoulders. A soft dusting of makeup was thought to have completed the look until she showed you the dress she found.
“Now that completes the look.” You said almost breathless as you stood marvelling at yourself in the mirror.
“I couldn’t find one in your closet that was right for the occasion, you know, uncertain-of-where-this-relationship-stands-but-I-really-like-this-boy-dinner, but I sure as hell found one in mine. Damn even I would date you,” She said sitting from the couch behind you. The dress fell to about mid calf and it was tapered at the bottom so it gave a slimming and sculpting effect. The red of the dress set a fire in your eyes. You turned around and your heart started the hammer. What if he liked me?

When 7pm rolled around you have convinced yourself that this was just a fancy dinner with your friend, so if anything a little extra happened you would be surprised.
“You look great,” Z exclaimed, “Just pretend I’m not he-.” A knock at the door stopped her mid sentence. You took a deep breath and opened the door to a fresh pressed white shirt; sleeves rolled to the elbows and trousers accompanied by smiling eyes.
“You look gorgeous,” Tom breathed, his eyes spilling over the fitted red dress.
“And you just look - wow,” you could barely form a sentence. You were going out with this man? Score. The car ride was pleasant. There were some silences but they weren’t awkward, they were comfortable. It gave you a change to appreciate his presence. You noticed how the car was filled with the faint smell of cologne. The woody masculine smell, was just the right amount to make you melt; almost completely, looking into his eyes would surely take care of the rest.

The restaurant welcomed you by taking your coat and your name for the check. They did the same with Tom and you were taken to your seats. A table right by the window, overlooking the skyline of the city. You must have been distracted by Tom in the car to have realized you were driving up so high.
“So,” Tom said, snapping you out of your thoughts, “I think that we both deserve to know each other better. We both worked so hard on set, we hardly got any time to know each other. And I think you’re one to get to know.” The last few words make your heart nearly break out of your ribcage and insist itself upon Tom.
“Well I was born in Winnipeg. It’s a smaller city in Canada. I’ve always wanted to be involved in acting. You were actually on of my role models when we were younger,” you glanced up from your glass. You hadn’t realized that you were playing with the condensation collecting on the outside of it. Tom’s eyes were locked on yours and a warm blush arose to his cheeks. You continued. “My family is very important to me. But I had to see that fall apart when my parents got divorced. It really showed me that I had to be there for myself, and to love myself.” You let out a sigh, the worlds weight lifting off your shoulders. Tom smiled that award winning smile and he reached across the table and grabbed your hand. His thumb ran in circles over the back of your hand as he told you about how he grew up in Kingston and how it’s been hard for him to be away from his family this much. How he’s glad he has people like Harrison in his life and how he’s happy he now has you. Your heart threatened to leap out again when he showed you a picture of his dog Tessa on his phone.
I’m not jealous,” you said crossing your arms and turning up your nose in sarcasm. He chuckled and let go of your hand as the waiter brought the food that you had ordered. The comfortable silence fell over you two once more as you began to eat.

The plates were cleared and you sat back in your chair; stomach full. A sigh escaped your lips; your heart was content. Tom’s hand came crawling back to yours at the soonest opportunity. His touch grew flowers in your lungs, they were beautiful but they made it hard to breathe. The connection thought your finger tips whizzed with electricity you were sure could be heard by the people sitting behind you. When you looked into his eyes you felt him reading your emotions, trying to understand you; trying to listen.

He draped your shawl over your shoulders as you stepped outside into the night air. The hand of his on your lower back provided protection and a sense of warmth. You sat on the hood of his car with him next to you, the skyline of your future reflected in your eyes. You hadn’t realized you’d driven so high. High enough that the air was thinner. But also high enough that you realized he would provide you with all the oxygen you would ever need. He was your air to breathe.
“It’s beauty reminds me of you.” Tom interlaced his fingers in yours as you leaned your head on his shoulder. And suddenly, all at once this relationship was no longer undefined.

anonymous asked:

i was talking with a friend about the end of defenders and for her it's the end of matt and elektra. but clearly i think it's the beginning. and i start to believe that they could give them a chance. if matt and karen go back together in dd S3 i would be extremely disappointed. Not bc i ship mattelektra but just bc it wouldn't make sense at all.

Both of these asks tread pretty similar ground so I think it makes sense to tackle them together.

I want to answer this carefully because I know that there’s been a lot of shit flying around the fandom for a while, and the outcome of Defenders has only amplified some of that shit. Like, I made the mistake of scrolling a little further down the mattelektra tag literally just now, which *SIGH* was a bad idea. But if you’ve been following my blog for a decent amount of time or have talked to me about this show / ship at all, then you already know where I stand on Mattelektra and while I may have my private gripes and rants (I’m human after all :)), I try my best to keep blatant negativity off of my blog so I’m going to try to approach this as objectively as possible.

Given the events of Defenders and the rather unprecedented amount of Mattelektra on that show, of course I would love to see more of my OTP in the future seasons of the show. But realistically, I don’t think this is the direction DDS3 will be going, for a few different reasons. This relates to the perspective of your friend, Anon #1, and your question at the end Anon #2, but I think it makes sense to bring a sense of closure to the more heightened aspects of DD’s world – the mythic antagonists (the Hand) and the epic romance storylines (Elektra) – before shifting gears to a Born Again adaptation which will probably bring DDS3 back around to the more grounded, gritty tone of DDS1. 

And quite honestly, if this is ultimately all we were meant to be given as far as Mattelektra goes within the Netflix Marvel universe, it would be tragic, but my god, they will never take the absolute epic-ness of the DDS2 –> TDS1 Mattelektra saga away from us.

But what about Matt and Karen in DDS3? This is an interesting pickle. The realist in me has always assumed the show probably had some kind of Matt/Karen endgame in mind. And on the surface, adapting Born Again, which is a very Karen centric / redemptive storyline, seems like it would continue to push things in that direction. But the following gives me pause: seeing how far removed MCU Karen is from Comics Karen’s origins, I can’t see how MCU Karen could possibly play any of those same character beats from the comics without feeling seriously concerned that they’re going to retcon any of her non-Matt character development to suddenly fulfill this very specific role in this very specific story. I mean, putting a Matt/Karen romance subplot (which has historically, on this show, not been very heavy in substance) into what is likely to be a very dark and traumatic storyline for Matt feels like such a tonal mismatch for the direction. And I’m really not saying this as a Mattelektra shipper, but as a fan of Daredevil. 

Instead, I think a more realistic approach is to focus on the Matt/Karen relationship in a way that eschews the romantic angle but digs deeper into rebuilding the relationship into a true friendship, becoming true family. I’ll admit this line of thinking is 100% inspired by @significantowl​‘s collection of post-Defenders / DDS3-relevant thoughts, particularly her last point about family being a potential theme of S3:

If Father Lantom gave us the theme of Matt’s arc in the first episode (you’re not abandoning Elektra/you don’t have it in you), I think Foggy gave us the theme of s3: family. Found (avocado) family and biological family… I feel sure that’s where it’s at.

I totally love this idea btw, because I feel like so much of the issues that have been festering and eating away at Matt’s relationships over the first two seasons of DD have deep roots in the trauma and unresolved angst of his past. I see a lot of potential here to use the framework of the Born Again storyline, which will for sure knock Matt even lower into the depths of his own personal hell than he thought possible, to be a redemptive storyline for ALL of his close relationships. BUT who the hell knows really. We have zero information on what’s going to happen with Karen on the Punisher storyline. Between the ending of Defenders and what I imagine will be a really meaty arc on Punisher, Karen Page might be a very different person by the time we see her in DDS3. So really…anything goes. 

As a sidenote, my dream scenario would be to replace Nuke’s role with Bullseye – killing two birds with one stone since Kingpin hiring Bullseye to come after Daredevil is even MORE iconic – and then have my girl Elektra show up to help save Matt Murdock’s ass because the trio of DD, Bullseye, and Elektra would be so freaking epic. I don’t even need any ship stuff (though I wouldn’t say no to it) I mean, just having her around would make me happy :). 

So in summary:

  • I don’t think we’ll see Mattelektra addressed in DDS3 unless it’s also addressing the fallout of Defenders, which I don’t think they’ll do if they want to move directly into new stories.
  • I DO think that Mattelektra will continue to have a presence, even if it’s just a backgrounded one, because DDS2 and TDS1 have firmly established that this is an Important Relationship, even if it doesn’t end up being THE relationship. I only hope that the overall story will give Elektra a natural place to pop back in, and on her own terms. 
  • I think a more prominent Matt/Karen storyline will be inevitable, but I don’t think it’s a foregone conclusion that it will be romantic. Granted, that may be my own wishful thinking, but not terribly crazy if you think about the possibilities of the Born Again adaptation. Whether I’d trust the writers not to be obnoxiously heavy handed about the whole thing is another matter. 

Thanks for the asks, Anons! And now that this slightly more serious DD meta-ing is over, I’ll be back to my regularly scheduled mix of Mattelektra trash / Elodie Yung very soon haha, jk, not really. ;)

anonymous asked:

Do I have any right to feel upset that my fb is sleeping with other people when I'm being exclusive to them? I feel hurt but I feel as if I can't say anything.

You have EVERY right to feel the way you do. Your feelings are completely valid and never apologize for them. fb situations can be really tricky, and it’s TOTALLY natural and common for feelings to develop. I’m so sorry that you’re hurting babe but the only way to really know where you stand with them is to talk to them. I know it’s probably the last thing you want to do, but that’s the only way they can know exactly how you feel and even if they say they don’t feel the same, it’ll stop the hurt a lot quicker than if you continue. 

How I Got Straight A’s 3 Terms in a Row

Some people just seem to breeze through school, never study and get all A’s all the time; I am NOT that student. I work just as hard as I need to to get the grades that I want. But the trick to getting the grades you want isn’t just about studying your brains out, it’s about studying and planning strategically.

  1. Prepare the summer before the school year starts. This doesn’t necessarily mean studying. Go online and search for the curriculum for each class you will be taking. In Canada, you will find this information on your province’s Ministry of Education website. The curriculum will tell you EXACTLY what you will be learning. Now you can use this information however you like. You can review last year’s material where you can see it will be helpful. You can make one online document per unit and find links/videos/diagrams online that will help you when you eventually learn that unit, this will give you a preview and now you have a online study guide to help you when you learn it in class. You can teach yourself the material and make in depth notes for yourself. 
  2. Always know your grade +/- 2%. You should always, always, always, know where you stand in all your classes. Some students are able to check their grades live online, I would recommend checking your grade after every assignment that gets handed back. If you do not have that option, I would suggest having a notebook (or a bullet journal!) with a page (or two) for each class. Record the name of the assignment, the date you submitted it and the grade you received back (as a percentage and a fraction). This is a great way to see how you are doing and where you are falling short. It is also helpful when you have finals, you can visually see where you struggled throughout the year. If report cards are coming out soon and you know you’re a couple points off, make the assignments for that class a priority.
  3. Prioritize. If you’re spending hours doing one minor assignment when you have a big test the next day, you need to reevaluate. Yes I know, smaller assignments are more fun because they’re super satisfying when you finish them, but you must prioritize your assignments. I rank my assignments according to how much it is worth, how well I know the subject, time it will take to complete and how close the deadline is.
  4. Study sessions and homework time. It has been scientifically proven that doing homework in this order is the best to prevent procrastination. Small assignment –> Larger assignment –> Break. Give yourself a time limit on the smaller assignment and your break time. Do not limit yourself on the larger assignment. Make sure your environment is well lit and you’ve chosen wisely whether or not to work in a quiet or loud place. Have water and snacks, try and save your snacks for during your break as an incentive.
  5. Do homework in the library at lunch. This might seem pretty lame to some people but if you can get some friends to join you, even if they’re not doing work, it can honestly be really fun. I find that when I get home from school, I’m usually exhausted and don’t even want to think about homework. If you do your homework while you’re already at school and in that mindset, trust me it makes its SO much easier to work.
  6. Grades aren’t what you want? Talk about it. Seriously talk to your teacher if your grades aren’t what you want them to be at. Some teachers will omit quiz marks or give you extra assignments. Sometimes if you really beg they’ll let you retest. Do not underestimate what your teachers will do. You don’t know unless you try! Plus teachers will see that you really do care about their class, which means they might mark you a little easier if they know your goal grade.

That interview where Odette and Katie look at each other and laugh when the interviewer implies everyone would be checking out Chris Wood really makes it seem like they had already talked about how fucking ugly he is. Come on, to instantly look at each other and joke like that with someone you need to know where they stand on the subject right? Plus, both of them raising their hands at the same time? 100% sure those two have dragged Chris Wood.

My dad told me a story recently about how he was in Boy Scouts or something and they went on a hike and were each given a rifle and one single bullet to practice shooting with (idk, it was the 70s or whatever). One of his friends, whom I’ll refer to as Steel Balls for reasons that will soon become clear, beckons my dad to a part of the woods and points to a giant hornets nest up in a tree. SB announces that he’s going to shoot it, waits for my dad to take cover (as one should in this situation), and fires off his only round into the nest. Sure enough, a swarm of pissed off hornets descend upon SB, who stands stoically and perfectly still at the base of the tree. Dad maintains that, despite their buzzing right around him, none of the hornets stung his friend, and they soon calmed down and returned to their newly renovated nest. SB turns back to face my dad and imparts this chunk of wisdom: “That’s the secret to dealing with hornets, Jim. They don’t know humans make rifle shots; they don’t know where the noise came from. You gotta stand still and don’t move, and they won’t chase you. If you run, they know you’re guilty.” Apparently dad was so awed he gave up his single bullet so SB could shoot the nest a second time, with the same results.

Long story short: hornets can sense guilt and there are people in the world who have tested this theory.

We are receiving quite a lot of asks concerning the situation that is basically saying the same things, so we decided to answer all in once. So we wanted to do one last post addressing this. We want to repeat that in no way his actions, drunk or not should be defended, he is an adult after all and should  suffer the consequences of his actions. The victim had every right to speak up about this matter, she understandably didn’t feel comfortable, accident or not it is not okay. The dispatch article put some light in the situation explaining  step by step and it was understood to have been a one big misuderstanding, but as the article said should not brushed aside in any way (here is the translated article).  It is important to not continue spreading misinformations, please do not spread the initial reports since it was released without real proof and explanation from the victim, victim’s friend and witnesses that we got later on. We would also recommend you to not support allkpop or soompie, they are not  reliable websites to take real news from. It is okay to feel angry, disappointed or even sad about the situation, everyone reacts in different ways and it’s important to let people go through these news how they want/feel to. We would invite you to still show support to this woman who obviously went through a lot last night. And again, thank you for showing love and sharing your opinions with us the admins.

Johnny Depp may have been through a lot of things and may have problems but he’s still there, going to events, meeting with fans and being nice to children. He has difficulties speaking in front of an audience and he still does interviews. And after being through so much this past year, he looks healthier than a year ago. He has more than 10 projects in the next 2-3 years.

And all of this gives me so much strength to deal with my problems (personal and speaking in front of an audience), you have no idea how important this is to so many people.
