Hi! I'm searching a fic where H and D have a daughter, but D doesn't know. He found out that H has a daughter when he starts working in Andomeda's children day care.. do you know something like this?

Based on an anon ask. HC of Jumin and MC who are both confused by acronyms/slangs/new words. The acronyms are based on what has confused me in the past, don't judge-
[Jumin Han entered the chatroom.]
Ah, MC, you're here.
Hello, Jumin ^^
I was going through some of personal clients' emails and found weird words.
They weren't supposed to use abbreviations, but what's done is done. I don't have time to have Assistant Kang tell them to re-do it again. Things need to get sorted out by tonight.
I thought maybe you could help me with it.
Eh, I'm not that good with slangs either ;; Though I hope I could help.
Do you know what PSA is?
...That's what I thought too.
But I don't think they meant that.
What did they say?
"PSA to email receivers. The meeting tomorrow will be led by Chief Jeon instead of Chief Yoon."
Ah, I think the context there is Public Service Announcement? Urbondictionary said they are rarely used as an acronym though.
Why didn't they just type it normally?
Anyways, moving on. Please bear with me.
This one is talking about marketing considering gender identities. It contains the word "cis".
Commonwealth of Independent States?
I highly doubt they were talking about that organization.
Have you searched it on Foogle?
I tried. But I don't think I found it.
Hmm, let's think about that one later.
What about the other ones?
There's only one more left.
This one is actually not business related though it was forwarded by one of our largest clients, so I have to reply it.
It's actually an article about me. It was titled "Jumin Han, Possibly Ace?". What does ace mean...?
Doesn't it mean that you're very good at your job that you are titled as an 'ace'?
That may be the case, I guess.
Oh! Jumin, I just found the alternate meanings for both 'ace' and 'cis' in slanguyde. Apparently, 'ace' can mean asexual, and 'cis' can mean cisgender.
....Well, at least this article is different from the ones who have called me gay. I'm getting quite tired of these rumors. Why don't people use the energy to do something more productive, like work?
It must be tough being a director ^^; Hang in there.
Don't forget to eat lunch, and remember that Elizabeth the third is waiting at home!
Thank you for your help and encouragement.
You should get a proper meal as well. Then, I have to get back to work first. Good bye.
I would like to establish that while, yes I do ship Captain Canary (Leonard x Sara) on Legends of Tomorrow. I am quite aware that Sara is bisexual and just because I ship her with Leo does not mean I have ignored the fact she is into women.
I loved her and Nyssa, they were adorable and worked well together, however that pairing looks to be over now and I’m okay with that. I also found her small, one episode romantic involvement with the nurse Lindsay very sweet, even though it was brief.
The fact that I ship Leo and Sara does not mean I am ignoring Sara’s sexuality! In fact,it serves to prove the point that it shouldn’t matter what gender she’s paired with. I love the fact she’s representing Bisexuality
Imagine Bucky finding electroswing bands like Caravan Palace and Parov Stelar and absolutely loving it because "STEVE I FOUND MODERN SWING MUSIC IT STILL EXISTS." He doesn't always feel like the electronic parts fit in right with the swing parts but overall it works pretty well. It feels enough like home to be comforting but also new enough that he still feels like he's moving forward and adapting.
bucky amasses an impressive collection of the genre on the ipod that sam gave him (he steadfastly refuses to use tony’s starkphone, just to annoy him), and instead of movie night, one night they have a swing night instead. steve and bucky already know the basics, and so does nat, and clint can keep up, so between the four of them they teach the rest of the team. thor has the most fun with it, tony steps on pepper’s feet a few too many times, and eventually the whole thing turns into the team looking up intense dance videos on youtube and challenging bucky and nat to try the more difficult and acrobatic moves.
I’ve been dabbling in painted alterations off and on for about three years now. There’s been laughter, there’s been tears, there’s been a rekindled hatred of my nemesis, the Sun.
I am far from an expert on painting on cards. Or painting in general. Or really anything at all, if I’m honest. On most things I fall somewhere in between “well-meaning oaf” to “wanton charlatan.” Despite this, I present a bit of a summary of my meandering path with tiny, tiny paintings.
It all started after I went to my first few Magic events, and was bombarded with requests to alter cards. Having never really done it before, or even really thought about it, those first alters were clumsy abombinations of silver and black sharpie that I’d just as soon forget ever happened. I did them for free, and even at that, I felt I was cheating them. Though, for many folks who’ve stuck with their fanship, they’re the treasured proof of nobody’s-perfect that clearly illustrates “we all start somewhere.”
In the panic that can only come from ruining hundreds of expensive cards, I started experimenting with all kinds of methods and media for alterations. Different kinds of markers, paints, paint-pens. My online research yielded that the preferred, common method was acrylic paint.
They worked, but they dried so very, very quickly in the moistureless air of Utah. As soon as a color hit the card, it was dry. No blending, no mixing, and glazing just seemed to be an impossibility. I experimented with drying slowers, and eventually started using Golden Open series acrylics, which had a much better working time. But, they didn’t cover well if they were thinned at all, and if they weren’t thinned, they were goopy. However, they did the job, and for a long time they’re what I used exclusively for painted alters.
Enter Drew Baker. Fantastic artist, friend, expert painter, and one of the best human beings around. I was yowling about some of the above frustrations, and he simply asked “well, is there a reason you aren’t just using oil paint?”
I stumbled through a few reasons, realizing that they were not actually reasons. "They dry too slow!“ Well, not really. There are driers. "They… damage the card?” No, not that either. Except that now the card has oil paint on it.
Drew helped me find paints and medium that would work well on the tiny format of a card. I tested things out on basic lands, to make sure the oil didn’t soak in, or the thinners didn’t eat the ink. Worked just peachy. In fact, it worked exactly like I wanted it to.
I’m still learning a lot about oil painting. Altered cards have been and introduction to the medium of the old masters, and great practice. Thanks Drew, for always being such a great help to me, and always challenging me to learn and grow.
For folks wishing to try on their own, here’s what I’m using these days. Pretty basic, really:
M. Graham walnut oil colors
walnut alkyd medium
Golden polymer gloss varnish
Tiny little brushes. 000 through 1, rounds and filberts for the most part.
I don’t use much of the Gamsol, except for glazing. Mostly I just use a tiny bit of the alkyd to thin the paint and help it flow. I’ve found that it will mostly dry in a day or two, or if you’re impatient, an hour at 170 degrees Fahrenheit will dry them. (Done a lot of experiments, and so far as I can tell, this doesn’t hurt the card or the paint.) The varnish isn’t something I’ve done that much experimenting with. Tried maybe four different types so far. The polymer is a nice combination of being easy to apply, very thin, and pulling out a “wet color” look. But I’m still playing with others.
Night had fallen in the Underground. You could only tell it was night because the crystals that usual shown so brightly were dimmed to a soft glow, casting the snowy forest in deep shadows. It was a time no one was to leave their beds save for the royal guard, only someone was out. Glass tilted his head back against the tree he was sitting against, spotting a few pinpricks of light shining faintly through the tree branches overhead.
He should go home. He wasn’t doing much of anything besides waiting for the cursed wing M!a to finally end. Glass hated being anywhere near Snowdin with them though. The big, blue and white appendages would be hard to explain if anyone happened to spot him with them. Call him paranoid because he was. Fat chance people were going to go peeking through the window of his room; it was on the second floor for crying out loud. He was probably just looking for an excuse to stay out at night.
Glass closed his eyes with a soft sigh. If he was caught in out past curfew again, he knew Undyne was going to have a fit. Well, she will when she stopped being a lazy fish ass. Heh, the great and noble captain was turning out to be quite the hypocrite these last few days.
A sudden noise nearby had Glass jolting upright, shoulders stiff and eyes flying wide open. Who was there? Glass swore he had teleported deep enough into the woods to avoid being found by a guard patrol.
If you don't mind me asking, do you have any recs for "political" Harry-centric Harry Potter fics? It doesn't have to be government politics specifically - I'm interested in anything that deals with wizarding society in general, and Harry as one of the central figures that brings some sort of change to it. (I'd love Harry-as-Hogwarts-Headmaster fics!) I prefer gen, but I'm open to pairings.

Harry goes back to Hogwarts after a busy summer, ready for year two. He has a new Slytherin following him around and struggles to come to terms with his position as a Slytherin confidant. Malfoy is back with a new outlook on life and Severus has fallen in love. Voldemort is keeping quiet and the wizarding World is going through Changes. not slash!
He was lying in the mud dying, the world was already dead. Voldemort must be in his grave laughing, he had been right all along and now it was to late to do anything about it. Death didn’t quite agree with that and now Death’s son was going to make the muggles pay for everything they had done.
Dumbledore was sure he had made the right choice. Ten years later Harry shows him just how wrong he was. With little regard for most, Harry makes a name for himself at Hogwarts, and shows everyone that he is far more than just the BWL. In doing that he attracts the attention of the Dark Lord, making Voldemort believe that the Boy-Who-Lived could be far more than an enemy.
Tied to a tombstone, being tortured by Voldemort. Harry wanted it to end. His mind, his soul cried for someone, anyone to help him. He hadn’t expected for someone to actually answer. Now he will learn the truth about the Potter bloodline and prepare himself for the war that is at their doorstep. However, unlike what he had thought, he won’t be facing what is coming on his own.

I have one question about the shared vision theory: I think it is pretty strong but, why doesn't Kylo recognize Rey? In her vision Kylo is very much, well, Kylo. If he saw her in his vision he should know who she is right away or when he enters her mind. Although, I suppose he could have had his vision years ago and maybe doesn't remember her face clearly. I want to agree - I am just trying to work out the initial lack of recognition on Kylo's part.
(This question relates to the vision theory that can be found here.)
I think it would be a mix of Kylo having experienced the vision a long time ago (as a child/teen) and his sight of Rey being obscured and veiled to begin with. We’re talking about heightened visions rather than accurate representations of reality, which is why vision!Kylo looked like this (mask on, blade raised):
And real!Kylo looked like this (mask off, blade lowered):
And even if he had a vague memory of seeing a young girl with brown hair in his vision, that won’t have been enough for him to associate her with Rey with any certainty. However, while there are many pretty young girls with brown hair, there is only going to be one such girl who faces him in a snowy forest with his grandfather’s lightsaber in her hands:
