Dad daughter moments

…There was no way Dad would ever have been in a tree.“

Qrow chuckled. "He’s always been scared to death of heights. Raven would use his fear to beat him in the arena. She was ruthless on the battlefield. Bit of our background, I think.

"So what else?”

“I saw one of you and mom. And…” Taking a deep breath and she looked down at her empty hands in her lap. They looked awkward and out of place. Everything did at that moment.

“And… I saw the video. The one you were going to send, or did send to mom. A sunset.”

She glanced up at the man she always viewed as her uncle. As he sat with his head down, he was studying his hands as his elbows rested on his folded legs. With the oversized clothes, hanging loosely off his wiry frame, he looked like an awkward teenager being called out for sneaking out of school. In that moment, she could see Qrow at her age, uncomfortable and out of place at Beacon. Willing to be integrated into the people around him, but so different he just never quite did. Kind of like her.

“Okay.” With the one word, he steeled himself, and the unsteady teenager was gone. Her Uncle Qrow met Ruby’s eyes steadily.

“How do you want to do this? Big reveal immediately? Or do you want to know how things ended up the way they are first?”

Excerpt from @rideboldlyride‘s fanfiction, “Petal”.

I have been wanting to draw some of her scene’s for a while, so here is the first one that really peaked my interest. Ruby see’s Qrow at her age, vulnerable and awkward, and for some reason that just makes me feel so warm inside. 

It’s always a special moment when you realize your parent, an adult you’ve known, or an idol you’ve looked up to is no different than you, except they’re so many years ahead of you.

None of this is my head canon (though we do share similarities here and there)! It is not my story! This is fan art for one of my favorite Fan fiction works and a good friend!

Love At First Sight

Just a short drabble based on a real conversation I had with my Dad. Hope you enjoy. x

“.. she was totally playing the guilt card. I wasn’t even angry with her but she went and overreacted like always, started shit talking herself and leaving me to reassure she wasn’t a fuck up.”

Niall nodded along silently, vaguely aware of the swear words he should’ve told her off for but honestly responding to her with words would only encourage her to talk more. Don’t get him wrong, Niall loves his daughter but she rambles on about everything and anything sometimes and Niall’s learnt that most of the time she doesn’t appreciate his feedback.

“Just remember she’s younger than you, she hasn’t matured the way you have.”

Those were the words he told her once when she was complaining about her co-worker, and she wasn’t happy with his response as she suddenly dropped the subject and put her earphones in, trying to ignore his existence for the next hour.

He knew exactly then that what she really wanted was friends, although she loved the close relationship the two of them had she was still a teenage girl and craved a best friend her own age that would have agreed with her on the matter, someone that would have told her the girl was a bitch rather than someone reminding her she was the older one in the situation. She had always struggled with making friends, and as she got older her and Niall grew closer than ever, he was her best friend.

“I don’t understand this show. What are the experts hoping for? That the couples fall in love at sight?” She asked nonchalantly.

Niall looked up to the TV to see what she was referring to. Marriage at first sight was on and despite not understanding it he noticed she hadn’t changed the channel over.

“I don’t believe in love at first sight.”

That caught his attention greatly, he always tried to raise her to be a believer in things like love at first sight, miracles, etc. After her Mother told her Santa and the Easter bunny weren’t real he spent weeks trying to convince her they were. He wanted her to stay young in a way, wanted to keep the magic in her life alive. Obviously that hadn’t worked.

“Why not?” He asked.

“Well for smart people that actually love people for their personalities’ and not their bodies, love at first sight isn’t real. I think you can be attracted to someone at first sight, and you can see someone and just feel like you’re going to know them better in the future, but I don’t think you can love them at first sight.”

Niall nodding at her reasoning, thinking of a time he believed the same thing.

“Do you agree? You can’t really love someone at just the sight of them.”

“No, it’s real. I’ve experienced it before, twice actually.”

This caused her to frown and think for a moment. Niall guessed she was trying to go back through the women he dated in the past and work out which one he was in love with once and could have loved at first sight.

“Do you mean when you met Mum?” She finally asked.

He just shook his head.

“Well when then, and with who?”

She was getting frustrated now, he knew she never liked hearing about his past relationships. Never liked hearing that he was in love before he met his wife, but she had this all wrong, and if there was anything Niall truly wanted to teach her in life, it was to always keep an open mind and think outside of the box.

He smiled and looked at her.

“Once when your brother was born, and again when you were born.”

Tony had noticed your change in personality recently. You would sleep in, and you complained about being exhausted all the time. You didn’t make any jokes, and you lost a lot of motivation. You didn’t dress up and preferred to stay inside. You just seemed…sad all the time.

Heavy Thoughts

A/N: Here it is, a little thing I wrote about/continuing the conversation Astrid and Stoick had in Astrid’s Team! So, be warned–RTTE S2 E1 spoilers ahead!

Forgive me if this has been done before, but this was such a powerful scene–I hardly do the beautiful animation and voice acting any justice, but here we go anyway! :) Implied Hiccstrid.

Astrid’s heavy gaze drifted towards the other riders and their dragons. In one swift motion, she peeled her blanket off of her legs, pushed herself to her feet, and swept her axe from the cold stone flooring.

If she couldn’t sleep… she could at least make herself useful.

The Hofferson strode towards the exit with silent footsteps. Upon reaching the arch, she turned very briefly glanced over her shoulder, taking in the sight of her friends. Supporting her. It wasn’t verbal support, but Astrid didn’t need words. The act of merely keeping her company… That was enough. They were there for her day and night, and always seemed to be around when trouble came along. She supposed that trouble had a strange way of finding them, but still. It was like a strange metaphor, like the ones that Tuff would conjure out of thin air.

Astrid needed to protect the people she cared about. She had to constantly be there. …Didn’t she?
