Another scenario where Francoise and Hilda could meet would be that AU idea that gets brought up every now and then (think Axl brought it up last) where Hilda was the one to survive and the Black Ghost agents grabbed HER to be their 004 subject. Albert's story is sad as is, but this would be pretty sad in its own ways too :c. Hilda would be free of East Berlin (if it were in the Cold War setting), but would be on the run, her fiance would have died, and her body's now a war machine.
YES I was thinking about this AU too. it’d be really interesting to see how hilda would react to all that stuff. would she be snarky and self-destructive like albert? it’s too bad we don’t see her personality in canon.
if hilda was 004, I imagine fran would stick to her a lot more, since it would be more comforting to have another woman around for support. and then their romance can bud :3c
With how babies are so easily amused and can just spend time laughing back and forth at each other, sometimes I wonder how that'd look with some Ivans. Even if they're super-intelligent, they're also babies. Maybe they'd do it when they think nobody is watching.
Of course! it is my headcanon that no matter how smart Ivan is. Intelligence =/= Knowledge OR Behavior, so even if he’s even smarter than Gilmore, he cant still dodge the fact that he’s a little spawn of satan little child
Why I like them - He’s the only one who seems to take being a cyborg as a positive influence in his life. Chang and Geronimo just sort of keep going and are pragmatic about it, but GB embraces it entirely from the get and I love that about him.
Why I don’t - Sometimes he’s way too much the comic relief and his contributions to the team are overlooked. Also kid!GB is terrible.
Favorite episode (scene if movie) - The paint scene at the beginning of Search for the Professor. What a dork.
Favorite season/movie - 2001, def.
Favorite line - “If I’m not back in three days have a nice life.”
Favorite outfit - His brown suit in the 70’s, actually. It’s very English.
OTP - 67
Brotp - Albert and GB European buddies! Especially the 70’s versions.
Head Canon - The loss of GB’s former life of fame and prestige still haunts him and he overacts on purpose around the group to earn eye rolls and such because if he acted for real, he’s afraid they’ll react the same and he’ll find he’s lost his talent.
Unpopular opinion - Does disliking kid!GB count?
A wish - Actually showing GB struggling with his continued alcoholism. It doesn’t just go away.
An oh-god-please-don’t-ever-happen - No live action ever /broken record
5 words to best describe them - Buster Keaton meets James Bond
Dad thinks a small funeral and cremation, having his ashes here with us. Seems fitting, uncle Robert wasn’t big on many people and was pretty close to dad considering.
Luckily dad wasn’t the one to find him, he called the fire department to check the place out, turns out my uncle may have been dead a few weeks before he was found, so I’m glad avoided that, even if he’s feeling guilty that he didn’t check up on him sooner.
It’s now that I realise my relationship with my own younger brother is a bit like this, though I think Tim will have a better time of it as he wants to do better and he’s not gotten into too heavy stuff and it’s not at the stage of years and years of shit weighing down. He actually has work now if facebook is to be believed.
It’s gotta be really hard on dad, he was the one Robert depended on, basically the only family that really spoke to him. My uncle had a bit of a drug problem back in the day and had a hard time shaking it among a whole host of other things that made it difficult for people to, well, deal with him too often.
