Who accidentally pushes a door instead of pulling/vice versa John. (“They didn’t really emphasise literacy at the CIA, Finch,” he says with a shrug when Harold looks pointedly at the sign.)
Who doodles little hearts all over the desk with their initials inside them John. (“Please do refrain from defacing my desk, Mr Reese.” “I’m not, this is an improvement. Very artistic.” “Art belongs in the MoMA. We could go there if you insist on being aesthetic.” “Ooh, is that a date invitation?” “No, John. It’s a suggestion that we go to the museum, rather than having you draw juvenile things on my desk.”)
Who starts the tickle fights Mostly John, but Harold starts them sometimes too. (“I didn’t know you could be this underhanded, Harold.” “I prefer to call it ungentlemanly warfare. And you started it first.”)
Who starts the pillow fights John, although he has to be careful with Harold’s injuries.
Who falls asleep last, watching the other with a small affectionate smile John, though Harold catches him at it every now and then. (“Please stop looking at me, Mr Reese, it’s rather unsettling.” “Payback for all those cameras you installed in my apartment, Mr Finch.” “…go to sleep, John.”)
Who mistakes salt for sugar Harold, especially when he’s working on his computer.
Who lets the microwave play the loud beeping sound at 1am in the morning John, until Harold (“some of us actually need sleep, John”) reprograms it to play the sound of birds cheeping, at which point John starts doing it at 6am instead.
Who comes up with cheesy pick up lines John starts it, but it becomes a competition. (Shaw would really, really like them to stop doing it over the comms, though.)
Who rearranges the bookshelf in alphabetical order Harold, except not alphabetically. (“But it’s a perfectly nice and simple system, Finch.” “And it also puts The Art of War next to The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Mr Reese, so no.”)
Who licks the spoon when they’re baking brownies John (“This is quite good, Finch, I didn’t know they taught baking at MIT”). Harold wrinkles his nose in distaste (“If I’d wanted a child around I could have asked Leila over.” “You mean steal her?” “Don’t make me hold the brownies hostage, Mr Reese.”) and pulls a clean spoon out of the drawer. Shaw appears and steals a tray after they’re done, to Finch’s dismay. (“How did you even get in here?” “Wrong question, Finch, you should be asking how I knew you were making brownies. These are really quite good, by the way.” *nom nom*)
Who buys candles for dinners even though there’s no special occasion Both of them, though John more than Harold, because (let’s face it) they’re both hopeless romantics.
Who draws little tattoos on the other with a pen …huh. John starts it first, probably? (“That is an anatomically incorrect drawing of a heart, Mr Reese.”) Harold would definitely write nice quotes and stuff though.
Who comes home with a new souvenir magnet every time they go on vacation Harold. He claims it’s just to keep up their various covers. John lets him believe that.
Who convinces the other to fill out those couple surveys in the back of magazines John. (“Humour me, Harold, you know how boring stakeouts are.” “…fine, but just this once.” “That’s what you said last time, Finch.” “Your opinion on this is unnecessary, Ms Shaw.”)
update: okay guys sorry i haven’t been online much in these last few days but tinder guy was here!!! he left this morning and i think i can safely say that this has been one of the best weeks of my whole life ;;u;;
he’s honestly the funniest, cutest and sweetest guy ever and we visited cities and watched movies and had sex and now i miss him so much i can’t even explain that!!! i have never felt like this before and it’s all very confusing ;;u;;
I want friends who actually check up on how I’m doing, are genuinely interested in what I’m doing with my life rather than just messaging me asking if I’m going to the next party so they’re not alone. My boyfriend says I should make more of an effort with these kinds of people but do they even deserve my time when they obviously don’t care much about my life…
I started opening the tabs on Easter break, third week of April. Almost 4 months, an exam period and half the summer holidays later, the paper is done. 22 individual sources, 6000 words over the mininum requirement. And I could write more, I could do it better, I just don’t need to, because it’s an extra credit assignment and I already have a 9/10. So I was well within my rights to finally close the tabs today. And I savoured it. Closed them off on by one. Removed the research papers from my desktop. It was immensely satisfying. But I’ve had them open for so long, have been researching and adding to this paper for so long, that I still feel like I could need them for something. I just couldn’t let go.
are you studying to be a bird scientist? U always talk about birds
okay warlocksmith smith i’m finally off mobile and on my laptop so i can answer properly. but yeah I absolutely adore birds they are my favorite animals and i decided to pick up a last minute minor in wildlife conservation to gain some knowledge and experience that can help me find a career where i can work with birds in any capacity.
I wouldn’t say I’m studying to be a “bird scientist” though, because I honestly don’t think i’m smart enough to pursue any hard science pathway. Like I straight up cannot handle the college level chemistry stuff and I chose a policy major specifically to avoid it lol. So I’ll have to do a lot of research the next few months on possible careers in wildlife conservation that wouldn’t require an indepth understanding of that stuff.
I do love what little field work I’ve done so far, and spending time outside hiking around to check bird nests is a blast and I’d deff do it for the next few years of my life if i could. I guess that’s the short-term goal. I haven’t started any of my wildlife/avian science courses yet but I’m doing most of them in the coming fall. Also, in just 40 minutes I have my very first avian science class: Raptor Biology! I’m basically just taking it for fun. I’m really hoping I can get to know some of the professors and make an impression and hopefully get some work by the time winter comes around.
EDIT: also for the time being my long term goals would be to study how climate change in impacting birds. My main two ideas are to study how it changes migration patterns particularly the flyway up and down the pacific coast. Would love to live in Alaska for a few years and study the birds there. Also the dream would be to study impacts on parrots in Australia. It would be amazing to study cockatiels and cockatoos in the wild, but that seems like a privelege i may not ever work up to. idk.
So I know, like -0 things about Dragon Age, but chandra-nalaar really wanted people to draw her… Qunari, Arisul. I really didn’t want to take any huge chances and just stuck with sketching a bust… Although I didn’t know I’d shade it to the extent that they wound up being. Aaaanyway…. Here they are! Ta-dah????????
loots from destielcon!! I am a very happy (and very broke) person right now. I got the mug for being a panelist which is awesome *stares at my ever-growing pile of mugs*
I won the necklace from a round of cards against humanity!! Was pleasantly surprised since I never win CAH :P

I’ll probably get roasted alive for this, but I’ve been considering making my diet “unlabeled.” I’ve been an ethical vegan for almost 3 years, but I originally went vegan at a time when I was also assigning other arbitrary restrictions to my diet/fitness regime. every time since then that I’ve tried to loosen the reigns, open up every food to myself, and learn to “eat intuitively,” I’ve been tripped up because I’m still constantly checking labels and turning down foods to make sure I’m staying 100% vegan. and lately it’s just felt like I’m following a set of rules.
I’m not saying I’m going to start eating cheeseburgers, because meat, dairy, and eggs in their whole forms have disgusted me for a long time. but I think if I approach what I’m eating a little differently I’ll rediscover how to just eat: say, whenever I go into a store or restaurant I’ll say to myself, “you can have anything here.” I know I probably still wouldn’t choose, for example, the turkey and cheese sandwich, because I’d be thinking about the turkey and cows that died/suffered to make it, about how the dairy would hurt my stomach, etc. but it would be less stressful because I wouldn’t have to constantly be checking labels for little things, or saying no to a food just because it doesn’t fit the vegan bill…instead I’d come up with my own internal reasons not to eat something (eg. an animal died for this, it’s bad for the environment). I know that’s the whole point of veganism, but I’ve just sort of lost track of it.
does that make sense? I’m not abandoning being vegan, I’m just changing the way I look at it for a bit. for my own sanity, so I don’t feel like I’m restricting myself at all.
