Excuse-My-French

Check, Please! Headcanon

So, Bitty says “Excuse my French,” after he swears and he’s with Jack, but Jack’s confused cause he speaks French and he says, “But that’s not French???” and then Bitty explains how it’s an American phrase and stuff and theN LATER JACK SWEARS IN FRENCH AND HE TURNS TO BITTY AND SAYS, “Excuse my French.”

when I was 13, I was in a math class with two boys that insisted on making fun of how small my boobs were. They didn’t like my 13 year old body, so that made it ok for them to make the crudest jokes at my expense. and I sat there and let them. I was embarrassed and hurt and insecure, but I laughed it off, tried not to let it bother me. I thought they were “just being boys.”

when I was a freshman in high school, I was dating a guy, a senior. He was the golden boy, football player, got along with everyone, had the best smile, everything. I thought I was the luckiest girl in the world that he wanted to date me. And then he started constantly pressuring me to have sex with him and do all sorts of things I wasn’t comfortable with at age 15. He dumped me for being a tease and for leading him on and for not sleeping with him.

when I was 16, I worked at a pizza place and the guys that worked in the back were very shamelessly forward with the hostesses and waitresses. They made sexual remarks and jokes about what they like to do to us if they had the chance. I remember one of the guys always tried to grab my butt, and other girls’ too, and I thought it was normal, that I had to just let him. That it was just a joke.

and now, I am 26. I get whistled at and honked at and stared at by men that make me very uncomfortable. I am reminded, jokingly of course, that my place is in the kitchen, and then in the same breath, get looked down on for being “just a mom”. I don’t run alone at night, and get nervous when I hike alone with my son during the day. And to think that I used to think that all of this was normal. The feeling uncomfortable, the being nervous, the forced laughter to get through a tricky situation. I have spent years of my life thinking that this is normal behavior, for a woman to constantly feel like she’s not enough and yet, at the same time, make herself smaller in order to live with the bullshit of sexism.

this is just the very tip of the iceberg; I know many women with far worse stories than me. It is not right.

but now, I am raising a boy. he is the sweetest boy, full of life and joy and adventure! he is going to grow up, of course, as babies often do, and I am going to teach him many many things. one of them is that we treat everyone with respect, every single human, regardless of gender or race or sexual orientation or anything else we classify people as. I will teach him that women are just as important as men, and that it’s not right to put someone else down for the sake of a joke. I will teach him that the world is not revolving around him, or any other one person out there. I will teach him that we celebrate and honor the wide variety of differences in our society. I will teach him that there is beauty in struggle, and that he can be both strong and kind. I will teach him that stereotypes suck and hinder our society far more than they help, and that he can do literally anything he wants, no matter if it is masculine or girly or anything in between. I will teach him that humans are so fragile, and that everyone needs love, and craves acceptance and closeness. I will teach him to protect and help and stand up for those that need it.

our society sucks, a lot. you can complain about it or you can make small changes to it. this is one way to change it. teach your babies to love better than the generation before them, the world will be a better place.

Hiii! Comment ça va!? I'm out of fic to read. I want something nice, without too much angst (that's weird for me!), and funny. So, could you possibly, Ô Great Queen of Fic Recs, Leader of the FTFT (French Team From Tumblr), read my mind and Rec me something I haven't read yet and that somehow fit perfectly my mood? (I usually only read Larry but I would probably read another pairing... Desperate time call for desperate measure.) xxx

(aaaaahhhhhhhhh I was done with a long fic rec for you and I hit publish AND *NOTHING* and now I have to start all over again)(anyway)

Heyyy ! So okay, I’m blushing. And I feel a very big pressure right now so THANKS FOR THAT. (but really, thank you, tu es trop gentille avec moi :* )

So here’s some funny fics with not too much angst, from my “for sad days bookmarks^^)

- Bloodline: Louis doesn’t know how to feel when his best friend, Liam, finds out about a brother that he never knew, who was placed for adoption before he was born and is bursting into his life at twenty-four years old. Louis is very wary of the man who might replace him. He has always thought of Liam as his own brother. What if Liam doesn’t need him anymore? What if there’s no room for Louis? After all, blood runs thicker than water. Louis doesn’t like Liam’s new brother and he doesn’t even know him. That’s irrelevant, though. He doesn’t like him. He doesn’t trust him. He doesn’t want him hanging around. He doesn’t want anything to do with him.That is, until he meets him. (177k)

- Silence and Sound (We Figured It Out)  : Harry and Louis reconnect. In a bed.(2k)

- One day to believe in you : A mysterious force compels Louis to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Even when it’s really inconvenient.  Harry blinks and has the nerve to look surprised. “You think about me when you get off?”  “Yes,” Louis says. He wonders how hard he’d need to punch himself in the face to knock himself out.  “Often?”  “Yes, Christ, Harry,” Louis groans. “Probably eight times a week for going on six years now. On average, you know. More when we were touring, less when I’ve been visiting family. Anything else you’d like to know?”  (7k)

- Are You Missing Underwear? :  Are You Missing Underwear?   Just to keep things brief, my cat has stolen a large amount of socks and underwear from a neighbor.   I am very sorry.   I live on Cherry Street.     If these are your clothes, please call 112-358-1321   I promise I will give them back, I wasn’t the one who wanted them, it was my asshole cat. Or, Harry’s cat frequently steals Louis’ underwear.  (4k)

- Tell Me What You Want: Harry is looking for a new roommate after Liam moves in with his girlfriend. After a few bad dates he’s done with men for the moment and wants to concentrate on school. That’s why he’s looking for a female or a straight male roomie. When Niall tells Louis about the free room he leaves that little detail out. Louis, desperately looking for a room, pretends to be straight, thinking it would be easy, until he discovers that Harry likes to be naked at home. His best female friend posing as his girlfriend doesn’t work very well either.“ (10k)

- If You Asked Me If I Love Him (I’d Lie) : So Harry and Louis might have fucked up.The day of their wedding was the single most perfect moment of Louis’ life and every single day since where he’s been able to call Harry his husband has been nothing short of bliss. There’s just one teeny, tiny problem…Their families don’t know they’re married.*Or the one where Harry and Louis eloped but neglected to mention it to anyone. Meanwhile Lottie is getting married and the only way for them to not steal her thunder is by pretending they’re just friends for the weekend. Featuring Harry and Louis as terrible liars who don’t know the meaning of the word platonic and some Tomlinsons and Styles’s who definitely don’t believe them. (26k)

- if i had the chance, the things i would do to you : Niall sighs. He leans forward, pushing his mug of tea carefully to the side, before bracing his elbows on the table, chin in his hands. It makes him look like some sort of bottle-blonde cherub. “You have quite the fanbase, Harry. I’m not denying that. And you’ve done a good job of popping out every once in a while in the past two years, just to make sure you’re still talked about. But that’s all you’ve done, and I’m not satisfied. I want more.” He blinks at Harry. “Don’t you want more?”(Or: AU where Harry and Louis compete in the Lip Sync Battle) (14k)

- Learning to Eat: Celebrity chef Louis Tomlinson has a problem. He’s opening his first restaurant in 9 weeks, and he has yet to hire a pastry chef- apparently people think he’s ‘standoffish’ and ‘rude’ and ‘quick to temper’. Whatever. He ends up saddled with an annoying, happy-go lucky rookie who also happens to be obnoxiously good looking. His tv presenter and pop star best friends only add to the drama, and for fucks sake would everyone please stop quoting Julia Child?!Kitchen AU where Harry helps Louis re-learn how to eat.  (METAPHORICALLY) (28k)

- War Games : If Nick had wanted a normal relationship, he probably shouldn’t have given his entire heart to professional competitive asshole Louis Tomlinson. (Tomlinshaw, 10k)

- Fake Tears and Garlic Bread :  “His date is a twat,” Harry announced, interrupting Niall and Nick, “if I had someone that pretty wanting to have dinner with me, I’d probably arrive an hour early and take him somewhere much nicer.”   “Aww Hazza, what a sappy romantic you are,” Nick cooed, “Maybe you should go and tell him that, might cheer him up.”  
 “You think?” Harry perked up, “Maybe I should offer to be his date instead?” Or, Louis is fed up of having to pay for his food and decides to pretend he has been stood up by his “date” in order to blag himself a free meal, Harry is the clueless romantic dragged into the equation, Zayn and Liam think Louis is an idiot, and Niall just really loves garlic bread.(7.5k)

- Between Me and You : Louis wants to see more of him on Harry’s Instagram account. He comes up with a plan. (1.5k)

- Always Expanding : Gemma brings Louis home for Thanksgiving, and Hot Harry is the last thing he expected. (35k)

- We may fall (but we get up again) : a 27 Dresses AU where Liam is everyone’s favorite best man and he just might be madly in love with his boss … and maybe with an arrogant writer who hates weddings as much as Liam loves them, too.  (Ziam, 58k)

- leave before the lights come on : Louis’ never had a one night stand in his entire twenty-one years of existence. Not once. That is…until now. And OF COURSE this is how it happened.  (15k)


I don’t know at all what you have already read so tell me if you want more?
