I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions, but laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors.
—  Basically, Thomas Jefferson telling the Supreme Court to shut up about original intent. He thought it was ridiculous — like asking a grown man to always wear kids’ clothes.

Law and Kidd OR Law and Doflamingo.

Woe is me.  I will write them both.  I apologize for how long this post is going to be.  First is Kid/Law 

  • who wears the ugly christmas sweaters - Kid doesn’t look like it but he’s a Christmas enthusiast.  The man loves holidays more than Law would like.  Kid drags Law to what looks like a dingy thrift store in the center of town.  Law has to admit that’s some of the most fun that he’s had in a while.  The two of them walk out with their sweaters and the lady at the counter threw in an extra fur coat because “you two look like you have fun the bedroom”.  
  • who picks out the holiday movies and who makes the hot cocoa - They normally just turn on the tv and see what’s on.  Kid makes the best cup of hot chocolate that Law has ever tasted.  
  • who starts the snowball fight - Law does mostly because he loves to rile Kid up.
  • who drags the other under the mistletoe - Kid likes to nuzzle kisses up against Law’s neck before he leaves for work every morning because he works at home.  That’s why Law taped the mistletoe right above their door.  
  • who decorates the house - It’s very convenient with the combination of both of their abilities.  Kid likes to make intricate shapes each year and string lights on to place in the front yard.
  • who hangs up the ornaments on the tree - Law lets Kid have full reign of the tree.
  • who cooks christmas dinner - The rule of the house is that Kid cooks on the weekdays and Law on the weekends.  They come together for dinner and they have to admit that they make a fairly good team.
  • who invites the other to sing a christmas duet - Kid always manages to drag Law into at least 3 songs completely against the latter’s wishes.
  • if they have any holiday traditions - Christmas sex.  From dusk until dawn.  No one can drag them out of the home during this time.  And anyone who has ever tried has been horribly embarrassed.
  • who would start a food fight during baking - Law enjoys messing with Kid mostly because of the wide range of reactions he gets out of the man.
  • who would get drunk off of eggnog - Kid drinks more than he should.  Eggnog is his guilty pleasure during the Christmas season.  That and expensive liqour Law brings home.

This is bothering me because I used to do this ship “romantically” but now I feel like I can’t.  Especially not after the backstory that we got.  I’m going to do this as 20 year old Law with his “uncle/dad” Doflamingo.

  • who wears the ugly christmas sweaters - Doflamingo makes Law wear them.  Law contemplates throwing the sweater into the trashcan when the other man is not looking.  It ends up as their Christmas card and is immortalized on the internet.
  • who picks out the holiday movies and who makes the hot cocoa - Doflamingo takes Law out to the movies every year for “bonding” time.  Or as Law would like to put it as “torture”.  They watch movies at a drive-through because Law hates being inside of dark places.  The place has cheap hot cocoa that really warms them up.
  • who starts the snowball fight - Law glares at Doflamingo every time the man chucks a snowball at the back of his head.
  • who drags the other under the mistletoe - It was cute when he was 8.  He punches Doflamingo in the face now that he’s 20.
  • who decorates the house - Doflamingo gets people to do it even though Law insists that they don’t need people.  
  • who hangs up the ornaments on the tree - Law decorates the tree because it’s a nice stress reliever.  He blushes cherry when Doflamingo makes him get on his shoulder to put the star onto the top of the tree.
  • who cooks christmas dinner - Doflamingo surprisingly knows how to cook.  They have a ham, potatoes, no stuffing because Law hates bread, and the typical dinner foods.  Law goes out to get the dessert from the local bakery though.  The blond guy there always looks him up and down.
  • who invites the other to sing a christmas duet - Is this even a question?
  • if they have any holiday traditions - They get each other coats every winter.  Or in Law’s case back then he would point out which one he thought Doflamingo would like.
  • who would start a food fight during baking - Law can never avoid frosting to the face.
  • who would get drunk off of eggnog - Doflamingo doesn’t remember the last time he got drunk.  He remembers the first time Law tried eggnog and then knocked out in Doflamingo’s lap.
