fluffy-ish prompt: Brian and Dan adopting a kid?

Brian/Dan: Adoption 

Brian knows Dan is a good guy, a wonderful man, amazing husband, the best friend you could ever ask for. He’s endlessly talented, an eager and caring lover, funny as all hell. Brian knows all these things about Dan, but he also knows Dan isn’t really a kid loving kind of guy. Dan likes kids, likes his nephews, but as far as being naturally inclined towards children…well, Brian knows Dan really isn’t.

It makes him nervous when the topic of kids comes up in their marriage. They’ve been married three years now and Brian is ready. Dan…he isn’t sure. He’s scared because their options are limited. He’s scared, as silly and awful as it sounds, he’s scared somehow that if they adopt a child that Dan won’t bond with their child, won’t consider it his in a way.

It’s that fear that put off their conversation for another year. Brian never forgot, the urge never faded. He wants a child and finally he broaches it with Dan. To his surprise Dan agrees, smiles, says, “I think I’m ready to be a dad. I know I can do it with you by my side.”

They settle for adoption, at least as their first choice. They both had agreed that there are so many kids out there that need homes and help and they can provide both. Brian can see a list of cons, gay couple, older men, their history of sexual related videos scattered across the internet. He can see a million reasons why someone wouldn’t give them a kid and he’s scared.

The process isn’t easy, it’s damn hard, but by some luck they are chosen. They are set to adopt a three-year-old girl. She has tanned skin and dark hair and big bright eyes that crinkle when she smiles. Brian loves her the second they show him a picture. He loves her and feels his heart shift, feels it swallow her up. He feels the word daughter tie in knots around his body. He looks at Dan and he wonders if he feels the same. Does Dan feel that connection? Does he consider her theirs already? God, he hopes so.

“She’s beautiful,” Dan says and his voice sounds awed.

Her name is Maria and Brian and Dan decide not to change it. It’s a part of who she’s been for three years and they don’t want to erase it. They go and fill out the correct paperwork, they name her Maria Ruth Avidan-Wecht.

The first time they meet her Brian nearly cries. He doesn’t want to scare her so he holds it back, but she’s small and gorgeous and she blinks at them with big and nervous eyes, her hand holding loosely on to the caretaker with her.

“Hi,” Brian says softly, his knees aching as he squats on her level, “Hi, Maria. I’m Brian.”

“Hi,” Maria says back quiet, her voice a tiny pearl in the room.

“I’m Dan,” Dan adds from next to Brian, his eyes happy and a smile on his face. He definitely doesn’t look like he’s going to throw up.

“Hi, Dan,” Maria says and her hold on her caretaker’s fingers loosens.

They visit her on and off for a few weeks, spending more and more time with her. Brian thinks about her all the time, at home, at the office, whenever he isn’t with her he thinks of her, of his daughter, and craves the day they can be a family.

At home her room is set up, designed in pinks and purples and soft blues and greens. She has toys and clothes and books, all the things the Grumps and Dan and Brian had gotten for her. The only thing missing is Maria.

Finally, the day comes, after weeks of playing with her in the foster home’s playroom, of making her laugh and reading her books, and nearly crying when they have to go home without her. Finally, she is theirs.

“Papa!” Maria says when she sees Dan and Brian enter the room. She had taken to calling Dan papa, calling Brian Dad or Daddy. Maria runs to Dan and Dan is quick to scoop her up in his arms. To hug her and spin her and make her laugh. Brian’s heart is about to burst, “Papa! Angela said that I get to go home with you and Daddy.” Maria touches Dan’s cheeks, focusing him to make sure he hears her.

Dan nods and then he passes Maria off to Brian so she can hug him too.

“It’s true,” Brian says, “You get to come home today.”

They leave with her, their daughter buckled safely in the backseat of the car. Brian driving and Dan talking excitedly with her, and all of Brian’s fears seem so far away, so distant and silly compared to now. Dan loves her, adores her. Everything is perfect.

The thing I love most about Jesse and Genji confirmed to be in Blackwatch together is that they’ve lived such diametrically opposite lives the likelihood of shenanigans just bursts through the roof so fast that it’s gonna give Gabriel a migraine practically 24/7.

Genji was a spoilt ninja rich kid so he tells McCree the benefits of exfoliating, how to kill a man with those huge thighs, to properly wear a suit and ball dance while undercover, make every cocktail known to man, and that there’s the way the military uses knives and the ways ninjas use knives.

Jesse McCree was a gang member in his teens and then lived in the military so he shows Genji how to actually use a kitchen, to fix vehicle engines while under fire, the many virtues of dishonorable fighting, make field rations edible, and dealing with the inevitable guilt and loss that comes with fighting in an army.

I just like the idea of these two guys making deep impressions on each other that blend into their personal styles of fighting and what type of people they eventually grow up into being.

2018: Rise of the TMNT

Looks like we’re getting a new cartoon earlier than I thought. Nickelodeon is gonna launch “Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” (working title) in autumn 2018. 2D animation, mystical elements, probably will blend the humor of the 2003 series and the 2012 series.

So this means all new fanfiction and all new headcanon. We get to start over.

So, I started in the fandom when I was nine years old in 1988. I’ll most likely stay in the fandom when I’m postmenopausal. I’ll read forum posts by teenagers and adolescents who will still complain about other fans complaining, and I will totally resist the urge to giggle and say shit like “When I was your age we only had mailing lists and there was no social media! But we still yelled at each other over shipping.”

Like, will they even know what Mirage is? Will they remember the great Capritello fan fights? The Shiniangelo Saga according to Greg Cipes and Gwendoline Yeo? The Battle Nexus championship? The battles over why Leonardo always kills the Shredder? The debate over the cartoons being “for kids” even as the original comics were for adults? Which version of Michelangelo was the least stupid? Whether or not Donatello had a personalized stress relief outlet nobody ever saw? Whether or not there will always be a Klunk?

I’ll still be here.

I love how all the Anthro SuperHeroes have Favorite Foods they MUST HAVE 😂

Strahovski, who has had runs on Dexter and 24: Live Another Day, next co-stars in Hulu’s buzzy Margaret Atwood adaptation of The Handmaid’s Tale with Elizabeth Moss and Joseph Fiennes.
