I have a lot of father-daughter feelings with these two

Sometimes I can’t stop thinking about how Zuko accidentally spoke against his father and begged for forgiveness, on his knees with tears in his eyes, and got half his face burned off and banished from his home

Then Zuko betrayed his uncle and everything Iroh had ever taught him, begged for forgiveness on his knees with tears in his eyes, and got a hug and complete forgiveness and unconditional love

Hello Followers,
thank you for your patience once again. Here is another one and this time I took 41-year (well, he is 43/44 in this one) old Mr. Frye to the test. I mean, he needs love, too. And he is such a handsome man and had to go through a lot.

I hope you will enjoy this piece of Fiction. I do not have any knowledge about the bathing back in Victorian England. I googled but didn’t find enough or maybe I did not dig deep enough. (I actually just googled again to not look like a complete idiot in front of you and added a few things, heh)

A happy Fryeday to all of you. I hope my english followers are all okay + their families and friends after what had happened.

Since they’ve rebooted Duck Tales, I would love to see a Darkwing Duck reboot. Can you imagine? Better animation? Better writing?

Don’t get me wrong, I love the original a lot. But I think it could be improved on.

What I would like to see:

-Have Gosalyn as Darkwing’s sidekick instead of Launchpad. Launchpad was…okay. He certainly could have been worse. But I don’t feel like he really added much to the show. My favorite part of the show was the relationship between Darkwing and Gosalyn. Having her as his sidekick would create a more interesting dynamic between them as father and daughter as well as partners.

-More Taurus Bulba. When I watched the first two episodes (my favorite episodes in the series by the way), I loved Taurus Bulba as a villain. I was devasted to learn that he would only appear in one more episode. He should be Darkwing’s arch enemy.

-Make the series less episodic. Modern cartoons like Steven Universe, Adventure Time, Gravity Falls, etc. have story arcs that span the entire series. I would love to see a version of Darkwing Duck written like this as well. I would love to see Darkwing and Gosalyn have character arcs as they learn from their mistakes and grow as people…um, ducks.

Youtuber!Yoongi as a Father

And now it is time for the first Daegu prince, my highkey spirit animal, a total teddy bear with the softest smile okay his smile is so cute it’s gummy and it lights his face up so much and his smile is that one smile that makes everyone in the room :D even if they don’t know why he’s smiling, Min Yoongi aka Suga aka Agust D

  • For the original youtuber!Yoongi post, click here, for his proposal, click here and for father!Yoongi, all of the father related posts are here
  • For everyone that hasn’t read the original father!yoon post, he has one daughter and in another version, he also has a younger son, to keep this post from getting too long and repetitive, I’ll just be writing it with his daughter but the exact same would go for his son as well
  • Just a quick summary of original youtuber!Yoongi post, he has a music channel, he posts covers, original songs, album reviews, etc.
  • I have zero idea why but I feel like his channel would have a similar vibe to Ollie MN ??? that’s all I can think about with his channel rn so I’m just gonna throw it out there 
  • He’s pretty private on his channel so no one knows you guys are even thinking about kids until he writes an entire song about his feelings about becoming a father
  • He’s nervous, d efi ni tely, but he’s also so excited and in love already
  • He makes a lot of references to the bby being a girl so everyone just connects two and two and realizes Min Suga is having a lil daughter
  • He announces the birth with a log type of video where he’s just sat in his normal office set up but this time he has her in his arms and he’s introducing her with a big smile on his face 
  • “She sleeps a lot, she makes weird noises a lot, she’s just discovered she has fingers so she’s fascinated by that and I’m pretty sure I’m wrapped around those fingers”
  • She’s somehow always in his videos and it becomes like one giant game of Where’s Waldo like in what way is she gonna be featured in his next video
  • He’s got a lil cot set up in his office area bc she’s his bby and he doesn’t wanna be away from her just bc he’s working on music so she’s always in her lil cot while he films but the cot will change locations with each video
  • Sometimes midway through a song, she’ll make a lil bby coo noise (that I love so fucking much bby coos are so cute) and he’ll just get this really wide smile on his face and continue whatever he’s doing
  • Absolutely has a framed photo of her on his desk
  • They get to see her grow up a bit bc the cot gets replaced as time goes on, it turns into one of the lil bouncer things then it turns into her just crawling around then it turns into her walking around
  • He’s doing a video of him playing piano right so the camera is focused on his hands and he’s playing and his eyes are closed but then you just hear this really high pitched key get pressed by her and he stops for a minute and starts laughing
  • A few videos later, he makes a video called “The Min Toddler Song” where he pretty much gives her complete access to all of his instruments and lets her play whatever she wants and press all the buttons and he arranges it all together and adds his own rap to it and he just finds it so funny bc he edits it the way he would an actual song of his
  • Bc bless her heart she had fun doing it but just imagine giving a toddler access to instruments and sound boards and musical equipment in general, it’s a bit chaotic, messy and all over the place but he loves it so much and it just may be his favorite thing he’s ever done
  • He films her doing all of it and it’s so cute to see how happy she is to finally be able to press all the buttons and play with the piano and all the different things he has in his office bc normally he’ll let her play with his instruments if he’s holding them but that’ll be it 
  • Her hair’s in this lil ponytail and she’s in her pajamas bc it was just a day at home for them and she’s got this huge smile on her face and her smile is so identical to his that everyone just has to clutch at their chests for a minute bc o w
  • Her hair seems to be forever messy, no matter how much the two of you try to smooth it down into place but her favorite hair style is to have two braids and her fringe down bc she doesn’t mind if it gets into her eyes at times
  • She’s either in head to toe black or she’s in a princess dress no in between
  • Makes Yoongi dress up as a princess with her tbh
  • There aren’t a whole lot of pictures/clips of her actual face once she’s actually up and running around but there are a few and she looks so much like him
  • It always warms everyone’s hearts to see her bc she’s like a mini Yoongi and he’s always giggling around her bc he laughs at literally every single thing she does 
  • Gives her a Kumamon doll at some point let’s just be real so she’s always seen holding it or playing with it
  • His favorite video he’s ever filmed with her is this one video that makes everyone’s heart just o u c h, it’s a photo of him in bed, clearly having just woken up judging by the fact that his eyes are barely open and there’s a teeny hand squishing his cheek bc bby girl had pressed her hand to his cheek in her sleep
  • “How do I move her hand without waking her up I can’t edit like this my laptop is on the other side of the room”
  • But there are a few reasons he loves it so much, it’s not just bc it’s a cute video
  • He loves it bc whenever he watches it, he remembers how twenty minutes after he’d filmed it, she woke up and gave him her lil sleepy smile and her hair’s sticking up in every direction and she was so oblivious to the fact that she’d woken him up at 7 in the morning and hadn’t let him fall back asleep bc every time he tried she’d shift around and end up sprawled across him or has her foot pushing against his side or her hair in his face
  • That video just reminds him how much he loves her, how much he loves the small moments like that where she’s his cuddle buddy and regardless of how uncomfortable it can get sometimes, he wouldn’t change it for the world and treasures every moment he spends with her
  • “Good morning angel”

The Life and Times of Scanlan Shorthalt and his daughter Kaylie (PT. I)

Like a lot of critters, Episode 83 wrecked me on the Scanlan feels. And since I’m sure Episode 84 is going to wreck me no matter what the outcome, I decided to rewatch previous episodes that feature the amazing Kaylie Shorthalt and her disaster of a father.

Throughout the rewatch I’ve gone and collected some things that I think lend themselves beautifully to Kaylie and Scanlan’s joint narrative (intentional on Matt and Sam’s part or not). Whether it be father/daughter parallels, foreshadowing or just snippets of conversation that have gotten overlooked as the episodes have gone on. Stay tuned for part two in which I cover the later episodes.

A Musician’s Nostalgia (EP 37)

2:18:21 - First words to each other! First words!
Kaylie: “Scanlan Shorthalt… You know, I’ve heard quite a bit about you.”
Scanlan: “My legend has spread far and wide, I’m sure.”
Oh, buddy. If only you knew…

2:43:15 - Scanlan is introducing himself and Kaylie to the patrons of the tavern before their flute off. He introduces himself by his full name, ‘Scanlan Shorthalt’ and hesitates while introducing Kaylie, as he does not yet know her last name. Kaylie insists that just ‘Kaylies fine’ and declines to offer her real last name because as we later find out in Echoes of The Past (EP 38) that she is a Shorthalt, as well [1:22:12]

3:00:04 - After challenging Kaylie to a ‘flute off’ and betting his entire purse of coin, Scanlan throws the competition and hands over the entire purse. Kaylie declares to the entire tavern that “Scanlan Shorthalt is a man of his word.” Compare this to several episodes later in Hope (EP 56) where Scanlan makes a promise to Kaylie to come back alive from his ‘save the world mission’ so they can talk things over [3:23:15]. A promise he later breaks both in Raishan (EP 80) and The Deceiver’s Sanctum (EP 83) by dying [2:37:40] & [ TBA ]

Echoes of The Past (EP 38)

1:11:33 - According to Dr. Dranzel, Kaylie and Kent had previously attempted to break into (and rob) a house in the Cloud Top District of Emon but failed, resulting in their near arrest. He is enlisting the help of Vox Machina in the hopes of better results. In The Story of Vox Machina we learn that Vox Machina had previously broken into the same house, as it was formerly General Krieg’s, who was also known as the dragon Brimscythe, a member of the Chroma Conclave [13:50]. 

1:20:09 - Kaylie tells Scanlan that she attended the College of the White Duke. It’s important to note that in A Name is Earned (EP 49), Kamaljiori says that it was the White Duke (who the college is named for) that gave him Mythcarver as he passes it onto Scanlan [4:44:16].

1:21:41 - Promises (and often times broken ones) seem to be a theme amongst the Shorthalts. When Kaylie is revealing her parentage to Scanlan, she tells him that he ‘took [Sybil’s] innocence with a promise and then vanished just as suddenly’. As mentioned above, Scanlan later makes a promise to Kaylie in Hope (EP 56).

1:22:49 - Kaylie declares that she’s ‘come to take [Scanlan’s] dignity’. This echoes (can it be called an echo if it happened before?) a statement made by Raishan in The Deceiver’s Sanctum (EP 83) where she asks Vox Machina during a fight ‘why won’t you all just stay down and die with dignity?’ [ TBA ]. A fight which leads to the eventual (and highly undignified) death of Scanlan and so one might suppose that Kaylie succeeded in her initial goal.

1:26:21 - Scanlan: “Among my many faults, ego is certainly one of them. And knowing you’re apart of me makes me love you even more.”

1:28:18 - This the moment we see Scanlan’s character take a turn in a different direction. From this point on, Scanlan is on a different path than the one he started out on and let it be known that it was Kaylie Shorthalt who set him on it. 

1:29:35 - Kaylie: “You’re still a scoundrel. It’s whats kept you alive this long. In some ways it’s whats kept me alive this long.”
When one considers the eventual lengths Scanlan is willing to go to in order to keep his promise to Kaylie from Hope (EP 56), some of which include the consideration of abandoning his friends in a losing fight to save his own skin, the altering Jarret’s memory in order to obtain more suude to ‘keep the edge off’, etc. One could say that even after this encounter, Scanlan’s scoundrel-like tendencies is still what keeps him afloat.

Omens (EP 39)

2:31:27 - After Scanlan reveals to the group that Kaylie is his daughter, it is Vex’ahlia who is the first to take on a more serious note with Scanlan. She asks him almost defensively ‘Then you didn’t know? Theres no part of you that knew you had any children?’. Vex’ahlia being a bastard daughter herself may feel a vague sense of responsibility for Kaylie and her relationship with Scanlan.
Further on in the conversation she continues to insist that Scanlan ‘makes sure [Kaylie] knows that [Scanlan] loves her’ and says that breaking Kaylie out of prison would ‘make a good show of it’. Later on in The Deceiver’s Sanctum (EP 83) Vex’ahlia once again plays the bridge between Scanlan and Kaylie. Only this time the roles are reversed, instead of insisting on Scanlan to go to Kaylie, Vex’ahlia goes to Kaylie and pleads with her to help in the resurrection ritual for her fallen father [ TBA ]

2:58:50 - Kaylie: “Don’t come looking for me… When I’m ready, I’ll come find you.”
This is a request Scanlan actively ignores. He literally wades through medieval sewers to look for Kaylie Test of Pride (EP 51) and does so again in Hope (EP 56) but on far nicer terrain. And thats not to say he doesn’t give her space. Definitely note that the only time Scanlan seeks Kaylie out is when he believes she’s in some sort of danger.

(so I said I wasn’t gonna do this now, but I lied) I realised there are two bits in particular that make me go 😯😕🙁😢inside so here they are. (both are when James and Thomas are talking about Peter Ashe)

1.
“My father threatened him, his family, his daughter. I have had an entire lifetime to learn to stand up to my father. Other men are not so,” he searched for the word, and his mouth twisted ironically, “lucky.”

(I have a LOT of feelings about Thomas and how fucking strong he had to be to grow up as Alfred Hamilton’s son and still become the person that he is, and I just felt like I captured a little part of it here really rather well)

2.
“He didn’t deserve your forgiveness,” James said, his voice tight.

“Then who does?” said Thomas, so simply that it knocked the breath out of James.

He looked up at Thomas, a mere shell of himself, a feared pirate captain and former naval officer brought down and scooped out by a mere few words from this man. “None of us,” said James, hoarsely. “None of us do.”

(I just feel like this piece of dialogue captures both of them so well, who they are and how they view the world. Also it makes me want to curl up in a ball and die. I love my sad boys)

President Obama's Feminist Essay (via Glamour)

There are a lot of tough aspects to being President. But there are some perks too. Meeting extraordinary people across the country. Holding an office where you get to make a difference in the life of our nation. Air Force One.

But perhaps the greatest unexpected gift of this job has been living above the store. For many years my life was consumed by long commutes­—from my home in Chicago to Springfield, Illinois, as a state senator, and then to Washington, D.C., as a United States senator. It’s often meant I had to work even harder to be the kind of husband and father I want to be.

But for the past seven and a half years, that commute has been reduced to 45 seconds—the time it takes to walk from my living room to the Oval Office. As a result, I’ve been able to spend a lot more time watching my daughters grow up into smart, funny, kind, wonderful young women.

That isn’t always easy, either—watching them prepare to leave the nest. But one thing that makes me optimistic for them is that this is an extraordinary time to be a woman. The progress we’ve made in the past 100 years, 50 years, and, yes, even the past eight years has made life significantly better for my daughters than it was for my grandmothers. And I say that not just as President but also as a feminist.

In my lifetime we’ve gone from a job market that basically confined women to a handful of often poorly paid positions to a moment when women not only make up roughly half the workforce but are leading in every sector, from sports to space, from Hollywood to the Supreme Court. I’ve witnessed how women have won the freedom to make your own choices about how you’ll live your lives—about your bodies, your educations, your careers, your finances. Gone are the days when you needed a husband to get a credit card. In fact, more women than ever, married or single, are financially independent.

So we shouldn’t downplay how far we’ve come. That would do a disservice to all those who spent their lives fighting for justice. At the same time, there’s still a lot of work we need to do to improve the prospects of women and girls here and around the world. And while I’ll keep working on good policies—from equal pay for equal work to protecting reproductive rights—there are some changes that have nothing to do with passing new laws.

In fact, the most important change may be the toughest of all—and that’s changing ourselves.

This is something I spoke about at length in June at the first-ever White House Summit on the United State of Women. As far as we’ve come, all too often we are still boxed in by stereotypes about how men and women should behave. One of my heroines is Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm, who was the first African American to run for a major party’s presidential nomination. She once said, “The emotional, sexual, and psychological stereotyping of females begins when the doctor says, ‘It’s a girl.’ ” We know that these stereotypes affect how girls see themselves starting at a very young age, making them feel that if they don’t look or act a certain way, they are somehow less worthy. In fact, gender stereotypes affect all of us, regardless of our gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation.

Now, the most important people in my life have always been women. I was raised by a single mom, who spent much of her career working to empower women in developing countries. I watched as my grandmother, who helped raise me, worked her way up at a bank only to hit a glass ceiling. I’ve seen how Michelle has balanced the demands of a busy career and raising a family. Like many working mothers, she worried about the expectations and judgments of how she should handle the trade-offs, knowing that few people would question my choices. And the reality was that when our girls were young, I was often away from home serving in the state legislature, while also juggling my teaching responsibilities as a law professor. I can look back now and see that, while I helped out, it was usually on my schedule and on my terms. The burden disproportionately and unfairly fell on Michelle.
So I’d like to think that I’ve been pretty aware of the unique challenges women face—it’s what has shaped my own feminism. But I also have to admit that when you’re the father of two daughters, you become even more aware of how gender stereotypes pervade our society. You see the subtle and not-so-subtle social cues transmitted through culture. You feel the enormous pressure girls are under to look and behave and even think a certain way.

And those same stereotypes affected my own consciousness as a young man. Growing up without a dad, I spent a lot of time trying to figure out who I was, how the world perceived me, and what kind of man I wanted to be. It’s easy to absorb all kinds of messages from society about masculinity and come to believe that there’s a right way and a wrong way to be a man. But as I got older, I realized that my ideas about being a tough guy or cool guy just weren’t me. They were a manifestation of my youth and insecurity. Life became a lot easier when I simply started being myself.
So we need to break through these limitations. We need to keep changing the attitude that raises our girls to be demure and our boys to be assertive, that criticizes our daughters for speaking out and our sons for shedding a tear. We need to keep changing the attitude that punishes women for their sexuality and rewards men for theirs.

We need to keep changing the attitude that permits the routine harassment of women, whether they’re walking down the street or daring to go online. We need to keep changing the attitude that teaches men to feel threatened by the presence and success of women.

We need to keep changing the attitude that congratulates men for changing a diaper, stigmatizes full-time dads, and penalizes working mothers. We need to keep changing the attitude that values being confident, competitive, and ambitious in the workplace—unless you’re a woman. Then you’re being too bossy, and suddenly the very qualities you thought were necessary for success end up holding you back.

We need to keep changing a culture that shines a particularly unforgiving light on women and girls of color. Michelle has often spoken about this. Even after achieving success in her own right, she still held doubts; she had to worry about whether she looked the right way or was acting the right way—whether she was being too assertive or too “angry.”

As a parent, helping your kids to rise above these constraints is a constant learning process. Michelle and I have raised our daughters to speak up when they see a double standard or feel unfairly judged based on their gender or race—or when they notice that happening to someone else. It’s important for them to see role models out in the world who climb to the highest levels of whatever field they choose. And yes, it’s important that their dad is a feminist, because now that’s what they expect of all men.

It is absolutely men’s responsibility to fight sexism too. And as spouses and partners and boyfriends, we need to work hard and be deliberate about creating truly equal relationships.

The good news is that everywhere I go across the country, and around the world, I see people pushing back against dated assumptions about gender roles. From the young men who’ve joined our It’s On Us campaign to end campus sexual assault, to the young women who became the first female Army Rangers in our nation’s history, your generation refuses to be bound by old ways of thinking. And you’re helping all of us understand that forcing people to adhere to outmoded, rigid notions of identity isn’t good for anybody—men, women, gay, straight, transgender, or otherwise. These stereotypes limit our ability to simply be ourselves.

This fall we enter a historic election. Two hundred and forty years after our nation’s founding, and almost a century after women finally won the right to vote, for the first time ever, a woman is a major political party’s presidential nominee. No matter your political views, this is a historic moment for America. And it’s just one more example of how far women have come on the long journey toward equality.

I want all of our daughters and sons to see that this, too, is their inheritance. I want them to know that it’s never been just about the Benjamins; it’s about the Tubmans too. And I want them to help do their part to ensure that America is a place where every single child can make of her life what she will.

That’s what twenty-first century feminism is about: the idea that when everybody is equal, we are all more free.

Part 1 Part 2Part 4

AO3


Ladybug groaned as she pulled herself off the ground, spitting out the bits of fir leaves in her mouth.

This akuma was seriously getting on her last nerves.

First off, it pulled her from her busy schedule.

Her plate was piled with wrapping gifts, class president reports, and on top of that she’d been secretly trying to make things perfect for Alya’s confession later today. She’d barely gotten any sleep before a panicked Tikki flew at her, rocking her awake.

That was another reason she was ticked off, who the heck got evilized at 4 a.m.? And why, for the love of macarons, was she so powerful?

Ladybug and Chat Noir were having an awful time trying defeat Holly Jolly. They’d been bound by Christmas lights and wrapping paper. They’d been hunted down by a of evil personified Christmas trees. Not to mention the exploding ornaments the akuma kept hurling.

Ladybug had barely been able to slice their way out of the garland maze they’d been caught in.

Chat Noir rushed to her side after pulling off the rest of his garland chains. “I’m kinda done with rocking around these Christmas trees. Come up with a plan yet, my Lady?”

“Follow me!” she called out, moving without looking back, knowing he was right behind her.

As they did synchronized flips off the walls, narrowly dodging another attack, Ladybug caught a glimpse of something hanging from the akuma’s neck. Upon closer inspection it appeared to be a silver bell, a miniature replica of the kind they hung in towers. Normally she would have simply assumed it was where the evilied butterfly was hiding, but she’d know that necklace anywhere.

Henri had given it to Aveline on last Christmas!

She felt concern for Aveline. The vlogger was supposed to be setting up for the confession events later today! If she was akumized, wouldn’t she fall behind?

Ladybug didn’t have any time to dwell on that fact as Jolly Holly had cornered them against a building.

“You two could really use a bit more Christmas Spirit!” The akuma laughed as they failed to dodge one of the ornaments she’d thrown at them.

Chat Noir growled, readying himself to pounce, but his feet remained planted to the ground. His pupils dilated when he turned to speak to Ladybug. “Uh…My Lady…I can’t seem to be able to move.”

“Me neither,” she answered through gritted teeth, trying to move as well.

They struggled against the invisible restraints, desperately searching for what was confining them.

Ladybug had been testing for a crack in their bindings until Chat Noir’s gasp stole her attention.

“Look up, my Lady.” Chat spoke in a low breath.

Confused creases formed on her forehead as her eyes moved their way up to where he was looking.

No way… It couldn’t be…

But it was as clear as day, those red berries and green leaves meant only one thing.

Mistletoe. They’d been stopped by mistletoe.

Preference #12: Children and Parental Problems

niallsprincess67 asked: Your daughter feels like he doesn’t care about the family?

A/N: [Y/D/N]= Your daughter’s name. [Y/S/N]= Your son’s name, (I obviously changed it so there some boys in the mix) and the ages are of course the kids ages.  
I feel bad cause I know this was requested maybe last week, but I only got to it now. I really liked this idea and I hope I did good with it. (And if a lot of people tell me too I’ll post a part two. But you have to TELL me)

—————————————————————-

Harry: (age 6) “Why is daddy never home?” your daughter asked as you tucked her into bed.
“What- what do you mean baby?”
“Like how come daddy has to miss my school play. Doesn’t he like to see me dance and sing? It’s like what he does at work.”
You looked at her feeling her burden. She was so young, she didn’t understand yet, but she still shouldn’t have to have these thoughts about her father.
“Oh sweetie, daddy wants to be there so much. He’s so sad that he can’t come. But he’s so proud of you. You heard him when he called last.”
She just continued to look at you with those big sad eyes and turned over on her side so she was away from you.
“It’s not the same.” You heard her whisper sadly to herself.

Zayn: (age 17) You’d past your son multiple time throughout the day at the kitchen table, working on a painting with headphones in his ears, he is definitely Zayn’s son, you thought laughing to yourself.
Finally when you were done with everything you sat and watched him, which quickly became an annoyance to him.
“Do you really need to watch me?”
“I’m sorry. But it just looks amazing [Y/S/N].”
“Really?” his face suddenly lit up.
“Of course! I think it’s one of your best works!”
He smiled looking proudly at his artwork, but then his smile quickly faded.
“Do you think dad will like it?”
“Why wouldn’t he?”
“Because.”
“Because?”
“He never says anything if it’s good or not. He always expects us to like and praise whatever he does, but when I ask for the same thing he just shrugs it off like it’s nothing, or criticizes it to the point where it basically sounds like its crap.”
You stared at him surprised at what he had to say but even more surprised that he actually said it. He’d always been so quiet till then.
“[Y/S/N]-”
“I think it’s time I took a break.” He said sliding away from the table and storming off.

Louis: (age 14) “Ugh. I hate dad.” You heard your daughter utter out as she slammed the door behind her.
“[Y/D/N]! Don’t say that! Why do you hate him?” you asked full attention on her.
“He’s so critical about everything! That was the worst trip to the store ever!”
“Oh come on. Just calm down”
“You’ve noticed it too! I hear you both talking at night. He doesn’t care about us. He’s always away. When he’s with us he’s always grumpy or mad or teases-”
You suddenly couldn’t hear any more of it.
“Go to your room now!” you said and with a huff she turned and left with the sound of her slamming the door filling the house soon followed by the front door opening.

Niall: (age 9) You’d walked past your son’s room and saw a little mound on the bed under the covers, sitting quietly. So you tiptoed in and sat at the edge of the bed.
“Go away dad.” You heard from under the sheet.
“It’s not dad.” And with that you pulled the sheet off your son. He had a permanent angry look on his face. “What happened with dad?”
“He won’t let me play games anymore. He said it occupies too much of my time and keeps me away from quality time with you guys.”
“Well he’s right. I barely see you anymore [Y/S/N]”
He looked a little sorry, but that anger quickly came back.
“But then I told him that he’s away from us just as much as I am!”
“What do you mean by that?”
“He’s never here! He wasn’t here for my football game. He’s never here for anything! He’s doesn’t care about me. He doesn’t care about you!” He finished breathing heavily with anger.

Liam: (age 5) You hung up the phone and slowly put it back where it belonged, feeling both heartbroken and upset. Liam’s flight was cancelled because of a passing storm, and he couldn’t get out till the next day.
It was in your thoughts, that you were interrupted from the little pitter patter of feet.
“Yay! Today’s my birthday! I’m going to be 5 years old! And we’re gonna pick up daddy at the airport!” she said excitedly, already in the dress she’d been waiting to wear just for her special day.
“What time are we gonna pick up daddy at the airport?”
You looked at her and your heart just broke. She could tell something was wrong from the look on your face and the smile she had had faded away.
“Daddy can’t make it home in time sweetheart.”
She froze, but then turned around running towards her bedroom.
“[Y/D/N]! Come back baby!”
“No! Daddy’s not here! He’s never here! He doesn’t love me! He’s not even gonna be here on my birthday!” she said followed by the slam of a door.

Here There Be Pirates

(AN: I got as far as “kidnaps Laura for ransom” before I started writing so it’s a little different, sorry. (Sidenote: I bloody love pirate AU’s. If I have time I’m definitely writing more of this.))

“Admiral Hollis!”

A young soldier came barging into the study, his powdered wig askew and a letter in his trembling hands. The Admiral placed his cup of tea delicately onto its saucer with a weak clink, and steepled his hands under his chin.

“I trust this is urgent, Kirsch. You know I like to take my morning tea alone.”

“I - it’s urgent, sir.”

He held out the letter, the stiff parchment rattling in his shaking grasp. The Admiral took it, cracking the seal.

The young soldier watched as he read, surreptitiously backing away as the Admiral’s face grew pale and his lips tightened to a white line. Finally, he folded the letter neatly, meeting Kirsch’s eyes with a look that made him feel like if the plush carpet swallowed him up it wouldn’t be such a bad thing.

“I want my ship fully provisioned and ready to leave the harbour before noon. Rouse the garrison, I want as many trained men as possible on board.”

“Yes sir.”

“And Kirsch?”

“Yes sir?”

“Fetch me my sword.”

“Change” was not perfect. As much as I loved Asami and Korra’s friendship, I’m still not sure what it is that binds them together—largely due to the conspicuous, if well-coiffed void that is Asami’s personality. She’s nice, and friendly, and pretty, and rich, and that’s about it.

This speaks to my larger problem with Korra, and the thing I miss most about the original series: the lack of filler. Back in the days, fans spent a lot of time complaining about Avatar episodes like “Bitter Work” and “Nightmares and Daydreams,” wherein the show indulged in plot-adjacent stories like “Zuko tries lightningbending” and “Aang can’t sleep.” And yeah, some of them were ridiculous. But their presence—enabled by longer seasons and a series-spanning story arc Korra does not have—let the characters settle into themselves more and make connections that, while not strictly plot-important, gave the story an emotional fullness that Korra sometimes lacks.

In Avatar, Sokka had time to confide in Toph that he could no longer remember what his mother looked like. The show could devote 22 minutes to the villainous Fire Nation kids’ spring break antics. Sometimes we had to endure eye-rollers like “The Great Divide,” sure, but sometimes we got “The Tales of Ba Sing Se.”

Korra is able to maintain a certain tension and energy that Avatar could not—but sometimes, I think the cost was too high. Korra’s cast is multifaceted, but the show can never play around with character pairings or structure. It will never have an equivalent to “Little Soldier Boy,” or even the finale’s duel between Zuko and Azula, which, though largely wordless, brought two seasons’ worth of development to a resonant end. This season was sharp and twisty and I yelled at the screen a lot, but really? I want to know more about how Mako feels when he confronts homeless kids and sees himself in their faces. I want to see Asami visit her father in jail. I want to meet Zuko’s daughter. I want to love these characters, but the show makes it difficult.

I hope Korra is able to slow down next season for these reasons. I doubt it will, but I hope, because I think that taking some time to mess around with its already vibrant cast would take it from great to classic.

Confession

Alright, I know this post is going to get a lot of hate but here it goes..

I grew up in a two-parent household where my mother was more dominant and stronger than my father and got her word in the majority of time, of course daughters usually taking after their mothers I too developed this dominant strong-willed personality.

Most of the time I feel greatly ashamed of my more passionate strong-willed personality because it conflicts with my inner nature. I have become a lot more cynical and contemptuous of others as a result of my severe bullying because of my seemingly more docile and reserved nature (in public!!) so it only hardened my preconditioned behavior from what I seen in my household.

Sometimes I wish I can become that vulnerable, docile, genteel, sensitive girl again I was closer to when I was a little younger - even though people did see it as a sign of weakness where I lived and I felt like I couldn’t defend myself I still miss it.

I hope maybe when I leave this place I can finally attune to my true “feminine” self and be appreciated for it, and I know what certain types of people like that and accept it.

I’m getting tired of being the argumentative, stoic, witty, arrogant, quiet girl who is almost everyone’s enemy.

Maybe that’s better than being the weird, reserved, but quiet/shy girl who is nearly everyone’s object of ridicule.

I have a lot of feels about Emma being engaged to Killian at the end of the season and how it is going to touch her father.

In Charming’s nightmare, we saw him loosing his daughter and she had a ring on her finger, I can’t help but think how, in the big lines, a wedding is a father giving his daughter away to anothjer man. And How Charming hadn’t stopped reacting to Emma’s boyfriends, if you count it, he reacted to Neal (and wanted to protect her from him in season two) he reacted to Hook in Neverland and he reacted to Walsh being Emma’s fiancé.

Charming feels like he’s loosing his daughter, because of the new child coming, because she was getting married without him, and I can’t help but think that the conclusion of this season could be him giving away his daughter to a man he knows will make sure she’s safe
