Flower arrangements - Young Avengers, Teddy + Kate
"This is how it’s supposed to go, right?" Kate frowned and tugged at yet another leaf only to pull it off the branch. She frowned, looked sideways, and tucked it back in the pot out of sight. Did flower arrangements get that much more difficult since her sister’s wedding... or was she just never really as good at it as she thought?
The first. Let’s go with the first, she nodded and took a step back to appreciate her handiwork.
...yeah back to the drawing board.
"That looks great!"
The exclamation made her jump lightly but Kate quickly regained her composure and turned to face the newcomer with a bright smile as she flipped her hair over her shoulder.
"Well, what did you expect?!"
Having known Kate for years, Teddy wasn't quite as fooled by the show of confidence as he could've been.
"You've no idea what you're doing, do you?"
"In the least." Kate admitted and turned back to the arrangement. She tugged at and rearranged leaves and flowers. Teddy stood next to her, sile
Strong Points - Young AvengersDavid gets a book of spells and takes the time to reflect on his relationship with magic and a certain Chaos Magic user
Though puzzled by the request, Dr. Strange had few objections to lending the young former-mutant, one David Alleyne, a book of spells. If recent events taught David anything it was that he should deepen his familiarity with the field, and while he knew everything already, decided it was best to get personally acquainted with at least the basics.
As soon as he opened the book, however, he was faced with two aggravating notions. The first was that he knew everything the book had to offer. Of course he did, he berated himself mentally and fought off the urge to roll his eyes. He knew everything Dr. Strange knew about magic - that is, on a theoretical level, at least. That led to the second source of frustration, being that no matter how knowledgeable he was, he lacked any semblance of magical powers, that connection to everything around him that let him twist it t

Billy pays Wanda a visit when she's not home. He leaves behind a memento.
"My apologies, Master William", Jarvis said, voice remorseful and low. "But it would appear your mother has not yet returned from her mission."
"That's alright, Jarvis." Billy smiled back and took his backpack off his shoulder. "I'll wait." Having said that he pulled a pile of colorful pages out of his bag and settled down with it by the nearest table.
By the time Wanda was back Billy was gone, but waiting for her were several paper cranes scattered in her room, one of which was magically flying.
Billy & Teddy, Cookies
It was the middle of the night and yet Teddy could find no rest even in his own bed. It mattered little what position he took, how much he turned and rolled around - there was no escape. His exposed limbs were attacked. Whenever his tossing about tugged his shirt and exposed his stomach he was ruthlessly irritated, the tiny morsels showing no mercy. Finally he sat up

Teddy in the library with a kitchen knife
"Yeah, I think we’ll have to pass on that idea." Teddy muttered begrudgingly under his breath and stared at what could only have been a butter knife that appeared in his hand in the place of his pen. Alone in the mansion’s library so they could get some quiet study time, it was only a matter of time before either Billy or Teddy came up with an idea of how to take advantage of the situation in favor of some nonacademic endeavors. Yet no sooner did Billy’s foot start going up Teddy’s leg did the magical switch occur, making both stare at the dining utensil with growing dread and gnawing frustration.
"You have to hand it to him," Teddy added after a moment in response to Billy’s palming his face. "Tommy’s getting really original in how he lets us know he’s there without actually showing himself.”
It was when Billy palmed his face with both hands that Teddy frowned thoughtfull
Character sheets - Young Avengers
Billy gritted his teeth to the point he could swear he tasted blood. Every word that came out of Teddy's mouth was wrong- wrong! - and made Billy further wonder where had he gone wrong with that one. Even though Teddy had the core-book open on his lap, the blond still made all the wrong possible choices he could when constructing a new character for the roleplay campaign they were invited to join. The amount of second hand embarrassment alone was almost enough to make Billy snap.
"What do you think?" Teddy asked, his voice a honey-dripping purr that made him sound far too happy with himself. Billy took a long, stabilizing breath before smiling up at him.
"I think it's great to get you through the first couple of sessions... you know, before your inevitable, premature demise."
"You don't know that, I might be taken captive and forced to join the enemy forces."
"Pfft, with those stats?"
"Yep... why? Think you could do better?"
That was the goal fr
Sweet Child of Mine - Young Avengers
Summary: No one ever really forgets anything. It’s always there, on the edge of your consciousness, waiting to break out when you least expect it, for instance, in a dream.
Time-frame: Post V2
A Kaplan family fic
It was that dream again, the one it seemed Rebecca could never wake up from. She was always filled with so much anger in that dream, so much disappointment it was unbearable. She lashed out, not stopping even when the boy - her boy, her own firstborn son - cried out in pain. He tried his best to get away from her, his face twisting into a mask of panic and horror, and yet he failed. No matter how many times he tried, no matter how many times she had that dream, he was doomed to fail. Of course he'd fail, the foolish boy, she thought and tightened her grip. There was never any escape; she would never let him go. And he really should stop struggling. After all, she knew better, infinitely so - as they say, mother knew best and all.
It was always with t
Damn Ice Bucket Challenge - Actor! Levi x Reader
“Hello my name is Eren Yeager”
The said boy waves to the camera.
“And I was nominated to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge by Jean Kirstein… that idiot” Eren cleared his throat, “I am doing this challenge to help promote the cause in stopping ALS and will be donating $1000”
The boy straightened to his fullest height and looked dead to the camera, “Therefore an ice bucket full of freezing slosh will be thrown on me but before I get wet I want to nom- ACK!”
A bucket of ice water was thrown on the unsuspecting boy and his round face became tomato red in both of anger and frustration.
The girl stepped into the view of the camera while a shrug of her shoulders, “What Eren?”
“You were supposed to wet me AFTER I nominate my candidates” Eren wiped some the of the ice slosh from his thick eyebrows.
“Oh…sorry” Mikasa gazed down seemingly unaffected by the boy’s tantrum.
Lost Hugs [Levi x Reader] [Fairytale!AU]
“Hanji, what the actual hell did you just do?”
The brunette witch fumbled with her sleeves and gulped. “I-! Well, I was primarily trying to create an antidote for His Short-I mean, His Highness’s sickness, but I-uh-”
You glanced down at the even smaller Prince Levi as he curled up on your bed, calmly sucking his thumb. His messy, black hair hung over his eyes, and he clung to the covers that wrapped him, warm and snug. Your hand viciously slapped your forehead.
The witch Hanji worked in your palace for yours, even before Levi ever came into the picture. Much to the dismay of your parents, you actually became the closest of friends. But, you were royalty, and she was a witch. Being the rebel you were, you kept your friendship in secret. You ventured out into the streets together. She showed you her favorite spells and potions. She even helped your marriage with the street rat Levi, after you two met on another one of these jail breaks from the palace. She w
Love Me [Levi x Reader x Neko!Levi] [AU]
“Cat, get the fucking hell off the table.”
Pale eyes darted over at Levi as the ebony feline rebelliously sunk himself into the glass.
“Cat, get off there! I just washed that!”
Lifting his rear in the air, Rivaille’s little body trembled, retaining every bit of energy he possessed for the attack. His master took a step back.
“Don’t you fucking dare,” he growled.
But, when did he ever heed his master’s word?
Silently and faster than lightning, the cat lunged at him. His teeth dug into his thigh, and his claws pierces through his clothes into the tender skin. With a how, Levi’s hands quickly latched onto the wound. Despite his own strength, the kitten proved to be quite the muscular one himself as he refused to be pried away from his target.
You always longed for a cat, but you never seemed to have enough money to purchase one. Every time you strolled by a pet store, Levi always noticed the sad, longing in your eyes as you watch
For The Win (AvengersxReader) One-ShotA/N: This is an AU for reasons you will see soon. Also read description after reading this.
“I just don’t get it,” Tony shook his head as he watched the World Cup with the others. “Why is everyone obsessed with this? It’s just a bunch of guys running around kicking a ball.”
“Isn’t that what you do when Iron Man isn’t needed?” you snickered from position on the couch.
He shot you a look and Natasha high fived you.
“Guys we all know that the World Cup isn’t America’s thing. It’s the Super Bowl that is,” Clint shrugged.
“Yeah but the World Cup is more important than that. Half of the country mostly watches it for the commercials,” you scoffed.
“That M&M’s commercial last year was funny though,” Bruce grinned.
“I don’t understand. What is this World Cup?” Thor asked.
The Thunder God had arrived yesterday from Asgard so the team hadn’t f
Perfectly Normal. (Sebastian Michaelis x Reader)
"It was a relatively peaceful afternoon. Nothing had been destroyed in the Phantomhive Manor, courtesy of Finny, Bard and Mey-Rin...yet. Not that the Phantomhive Earl would hear about it since the Phantomhive Butler would attend to it and see it set right immediately. Mey-Rin was doing the laundry, Bard was tending to the repairs in the house(caused by him earlier that day), Finny was trimming the hedges while Mr. Tanaka was busy writing in his journal...eh? Oh wait, never mind. He's just sipping on his tea. I must have been confused by that steam surrounding his shrinking form. Anyway, all was calm in the Queen's Guard Dog's home. All because of the Phantomhive butler. Ah, and speak of the devil, there he was down the corridor. The magnificently efficient, wonderfully charming, sinfully good looking-"
"Hmm? (Name)-san? Not that I dispute, but who are you talking to?"
Your eyes rose up the tall, slender length to the closed-eye smile of the butler in question.
"Ah! Sebastian! Wh
Leuitas [High School!AU] | Jean x Reader
You’ve been best friends ever since you were little kids-- and honestly, nothing about your relationship has changed. It basically consists of bantering and pranks, with a rare kind moment thrown in.
He’s an ass.
Still, he never fails to make you smile.
Except for this morning-- when that idiot managed to get in your house and woke you up for school.
And how did he do it?
By dumping cold water all over you.
Needless to say, it wasn’t a pleasant morning.
You’re still pissed off about earlier-- your mind is set entirely on revenge, rather than school. Tuning out the brunette teacher’s excited rambling about science, you glance at the male that sits across the room, zoning out as usual. He’s struggling to remain conscious, only snapping out of his daze before his eyes meet yours.
Instantly, eyes narrow into a glare much to his amusement, a grin breaking out on his features before he looks away.
However, another voice dist

[Levi x Reader] Modern AU
"Levi~!" you sang as you opened the front door and stepped inside, pulling off your red and black striped scarf. "I'm home!"
"Welcome back, brat," the short man looked up from his book and placed it onto the small table beside his chair. As you made your way over to him, he motioned for you to sit on his lap, which you happily obliged. "You seem to be in a good mood tonight. What's up? Get a lot of tips at the café?"
You laughed, wrapping an arm around the back of his shoulders and the other placed on your thigh. "No, silly. It's Christmas Eve! Don't tell me you forgot!"
Levi paused, raising an eyebrow. "They made you work on Christmas Eve?"
"Yeah. But it wasn't too busy, so I got to slack off for a while," you responded with a light sigh. "But that's not the point. The point is, Christmas is tomorrow and I don't have to work until Monday~! That's 4 days off just to spend with my favorite guy." You leaned down to kiss his cheek with a radian
Tease: Kissing Booboos [Sugawara Koushi]The gym was uncharacteristically silent, all eyes of the people present focused on a certain silver haired setter. Sugawara was biting the inside of his cheek, trying hard not to cuss or cry as he ignored the stares directed at him. Instead, he focused on his leg and the dull ache that was starting to sear his senses more and more as the seconds passed by. He had been practicing with his teammates on the court when Tanaka—who was on the opposite side of the net—decided to try for a spike. Something had gone awry and the volleyball flew in the wrong direction, hitting Sugawara with full force just above his knee. A few inches higher and Sugawara would've been keeled over in excruciating pain.
"Suga-san!" Tanaka was in a panic, apologizing frantically. "I'm so sorry!"
Brushing off the apology with a weak smile, Sugawara reassured his teammate that he was fine before limping his way towards the side bleachers. His leg hurt too much for him to continue practicing. Collapsing on

"Messy twister? OMG, that's the best idea ever! I'll go get what we need!" Tony said as he darted out of the room to gather the supplies.
"Can you explain the rules?" Steve asked (y/n) politely.
"It's easy! All of you know how to play twister right?" Everyone nodded yes, "well it's exactly like playing normal twister except there are lumps of paint on the spots!" (y/n) explained happily. Everyone had quizzical looks.
"Wait a second. So not only do we have to play this game in bikinis and speedos, we also have to get covered in paint and no doubt slip everywhere?" Natasha said.
"Huh. When you put it like that...yes!!! How fun is this gonna be." (y/n) exclaimed.
"Not fun." Loki pouted. Moments later Tony walked into the room with four bottles of paint and the twister set. (y/n) helped him lay the mat out on the ground and put a lump of paint on each dot. Everyone looked at there masterpiece.
"So who's spinning." (y/n) asked as she clapped her ha

Word Count: 310
"It's stills weird that you have growth spurts like the rest of us." Billy hummed lightly.
He was, as often was the case, with Teddy, and the two were trying to make their way through the mall one day after school.
"It's not weird. Especially because you already knew about it." Teddy retorted after he managed to avoid stepping on a small child. The mall really wasn't one of his favorite places, but he had been growing taller lately, and needed to update his wardrobe. They both did.
"Yeah, I do." Billy snickered softly and safely sidestepped a girl who wasn't looking, and was holding far too many shopping bags.
"But it still gets me whenever I think about it-"
"You mean over-think it." Teddy corrected and turned to look fondly at Billy.
"Same thing for me, really." Billy shrugged and pointed at a nearby store.
