“Daddy I want my hair like that.” Beth pointed at the picture in one of Maggie’s fashion magazines. The little girl couldn’t read the words just yet, but she loved to look at the pictures.
“Um, maybe you should ask Mom to do that,” Glenn said, raising an eyebrow at the picture. “She can do your hair better than I can.”
“No. I want you,” Beth pouted. “Make my hair like that.”
Glenn sighed. He knew there was no way out of this one. If Beth wanted her hair in super impossible braids, she was going to get it.
“Okay, okay,” Glenn said, studying the picture. The French braids the model sported looked perfect, and he knew the end result of Beth’s would be far from it. “Okay, we need, uh, bows. Right?” He looked to Beth, who was already holding two medium-sized bows for him to work with.
“This can’t be too hard,” he mumbled to himself, splitting Beth’s hair into two sections.
He was wrong.
After playing around with Beth’s hair, seeing what things he could do with it, Glenn quickly came to the realization that just looking at the picture was not going to cut it. He had to watch an in-depth tutorial on this. With a heavy sigh, he took his phone out and typed ‘French Braid Hair Tutorial’ on YouTube, watching as thousands of videos popped up.
Glenn clicked on the first video and frowned as the girl on screen effortlessly French braided her long hair. How could it be that easy?!
“Daddy, if it’s too hard you don’t have to do it,” Beth said, climbing into Glenn’s lap.
“No. I already committed to this. This is going to happen. I will give you French braids.”
Beth giggled. “Mom can do it in two minutes.”
“Well Mom does it wrong. I’m going to do it the right way. Now sit down in front of me and hand me a bow.”
Later that day, Maggie came home to her husband and daughter laying on the couch with one of Beth’s shows playing in the background on TV. Well, Glenn was laying on the couch. Beth was sitting straight up with her head completely still.
“What’s going on?” Maggie asked, a curious smirk on her face.
“Mommy look at my hair!” Beth ran to Maggie and hugged her legs.
“No, Beth, don’t move! You’ll mess it up!” Glenn called from the couch.
Maggie laughed. “Mess what up?”
“My hair.” Beth untangled herself from Maggie’s legs and turned around. “Daddy braided my hair.”
Maggie gasped. “Wow. You…actually did.”
“It took two hours,” the five-year-old said, sticking her tongue out at Glenn.
“You weren’t supposed to tell her!” Glenn ran over to Beth and picked her up, hoisting her over his shoulders.
Maggie raised her eyebrow. “Two hours, huh?”
“Don’t mock me, babe, at least I was able to do it.”
She playfully rolled her eyes. “Uh huh.”
“I think I should open a hair salon. Maybe this is my calling,” Glenn said, putting Beth down before reaching for his camera to take a few pictures of his first client.
“I don’t know, Glenn, I think people might be annoyed at the time it takes for you to do everything. I mean, if it takes you two hours to do a simple hairstyle, I can’t imagine how long it would take you to cut someone’s hair.”
Glenn shook his head. “You have no faith in me. It’ll happen. Just watch.”
“I think you should just stick to photography,” Maggie laughed, pressing a kiss to his cheek. “But whenever Beth has two hours to spare, I’ll let you do her hair.”
“Yeah yeah,” Glenn said, snapping one last picture of his two favorite girls.
if you use glenn fans/stans anger to validate your hate towards glenn, read this because I’m trying to explain stuff for you so you can understand what’s up.
glenn fans have every right to be angry after the way the show treated this wonderful, stereotype breaking character. and I’m not talking about glenn fans who bully innocent people, I’m talking about those who rant on their own blog, or those who only reply to racist nobodies.
and still everyone puts them in one box, the ‘crazy, aggressive glenn fan’ one, just because there are a few who were mean and the others who handled the situation right get belittled, their metas get devalued, people don’t take them seriously. why can’t people see the difference between a glenn fan who is rightfully angry but doesn’t attack others unnecessarily and the other type who does the opposite? it’s not that hard. it’s not that freaking hard to see that most of the glenn fans belong into the former.
so all in all, take a step back, don’t let your feelings get the worst out of you, and try to read what is the problems glenn fans had been talking about for ages and you will understand their anger. don’t get hurt over the first insult towards your fave, don’t get mad over the first angry word you read. stay objective and try to understand the situation.
because you’re the one whose fave probably won’t die now (expect for Abe fans obviously). because you’re the one who will certainly see their fave after the first episode. because despite all the drama in the fandom you’re the one who can choose to ignore it and go on because your fave is alive and no one rubs their possible death under your nose.
