@usetobeapinetree asked… Will and Nico please. Either separate headcanons for each, friendship before they get together, or them together.
Thirteen answered… AND I SHALL. 💜
Nico di Angelo
Nico knows tons of languages from traveling so many places but also having so much time in the Lotus Casino to learn and listen to so many people speaking different languages. His expertise includes but is not limited to Italian, French, German, Spanish, Samoan, and even a bit of Russian.
After being introduced by Percy, Voltron easily became Nico’s favourite TV show. He decided that he liked it because they showed the old version in the Lotus Casino when he would go to bed with Bianca. He would watch the 1980′s version because it made sure he had ‘fun’.
Nico’s eyes are dark brown, almost the same colour of wet soil. If you look closely, you see several specks and pieces that look like jewels and precious metals, such as golden and silver specks along with purple, green, and orange specks.
Nico’s all for the Christmas spirit. He loves the over-sized sweaters, the peppermint hot chocolate, the mittens, everything. He loves putting the star on the Christmas tree and his favourite Christmas song is O Come O Come, Emanuel
Nico is so allergic to chocolate, it’s sad. He can’t eat any Halloween candy, Christmas candy, or have normal hot chocolate. He’s also extremely lactose intolerant. Sally makes special cookies for him and always serves him a glass of almond milk with it.
He actually loves wearing maroon, grey, dark purple, navy blue, and white. The colours are the things he appreciates in his life, even if they’re dark.
Nico is a sucker for international black and white movies. He doesn’t normally read the captions because he can just understand what they’re all speaking. He finds black and white romances to be the best movie genre.
Although mostly terrible at music, Will can play the piano. It doesn’t come naturally with his dad’s powers but with lessons that his mother gave him, he learned how to play the piano beautifully.
Will is convinced that Bigfoot is real and even has a very blurry polaroid of it. He keeps it beside his bed because he’s so determined that he could eventually capture the hairy thing one day.
Will has a matching camp shirt with Piper that they wear more than they should. It’s bright pink and has the words, DREW’S HO on his along with WILL’S HO on the one that belongs to Drew.
Will’s favourite band is MUSE ever since his mom played his first song when he was 7. Ever since then, he’s listened to the band in any time or hurt or trial or something that he hated.
Will used to play soccer as a kid on a team and everything. He was really good at it and played all the way up through high school before he became a full-time camper.
His cologne is called, ‘Yvonne’s Man’and it smells like axe mixed with Italian leather, which is a lot more disgusting than you’d think.
Will is reclusive, not usually interacting with others unless he knows them well. He doesn’t like interacting with new people and hates talking to strangers because it causes him terrible anxiety. He’s more introverted than anything and is always keeping to himself or with a close group of friends.
Send me a character and I’ll give you 7(seven) different headcanons I have about them.
Hello lovely! I had to ask, does Peyroux have a sort of Witches Guild or Collective where aspiring and skilled witches alike can sit for a spell and discuss their magical and mundane lives? (I've been working on a new spell and to get a second opinion from the esteemed witches of Peyroux in a place of power would be most excellent!). Thank you for your time, Atticus!
There are so many witches practicing so many variants within magic that, for the purposes of a generalized need, requests, and learning, folk usually just ask a neighbor. If said neighbor cannot handle the spell or has other business to tend, the idea gets passed around until someone is available and willing.
If you’re just looking to talk shop, many folk hang out at Donut Be Afraid, the coffee shop, and ask about in a similar fashion to the above. Or if you need something discovered, Second Story Used Books will find your best bet. And if it is plant based, Ground Floor Plants & More (look for the gargoyle).
Hey! I've been struggling with so many things - mainly mental health, self love, body image, and keeping Christ in my life. What are some good Scripture passages for these topics?
Philippians 4:6-7 is great to remember in times of worry. For mental health, I like to look to the Psalms. I didn’t realize it at first, but many of the psalms are from the perspective of a depressed person looking to God. Praying a psalm a day doesn’t take a long time and it’s comforting.
For self love I thing Proverbs 31 is a great place to look for a good role model of a woman who finds her worth from living a wise life. It’s a very different lifestyle from the one the one our culture promotes.
To walk with Jesus, the very best thing to do is read a from the gospels every day. I like to read one section a day ( not the entire chapter) and reflect on that one episode of Jesus’ life.
Sometimes I have to deliberately make sure that that I am filling myself with good things. If I take the time to read the Bible and to read good books and maybe listen to a little classical type music for awhile instead of popular music, it means I’m filling myself with life giving messages and a little more able to deal with the damaging messages that pop up in social media and music lyrics. My mental health is super susceptible to music lyrics.
As an older fan it cracks me up how this fandom has placed this playboy image onto Jungkook. Slight rash on his neck? Obviously a hickey from one of his many sidechicks (lol). Honestly though I've been around my fair share of "fuckboys" and Jungkook is no where near that. If I'm being real with myself I think his shyness makes him even more attractive lol
I want a scientific explanation as to why so many people think he’s some suave player bc I don’t?????? My baby spends his free time playing overwatch n looking at memes??? Where’s the time for ladies?????
Hey, I saw you were asking for twilight headcanons. I've been wondering something about vampires and how they learn languages. Because of how languages change over time, do they track these changes so they appear normal and how do they do it? What do they consider their native language? Which one do the Volturi prefer to speak? I wonder if they use slang... Did Demetri and Heidi speak English as she led the victims just to scare Bella? So many questions 😅
I imagine a good percentage of the Volturi are very proficient in speaking multiple languages.
They would have to be, right? They’re constantly travelling to places all over the world, and even with one language it’s always going to be changing over time. Not to mention they’ve all each been around for incredibly long amounts time.
Heidi and Demetri would have to be very multilingual. Heidi is always out away from home. Europe as a continent already has so many languages to begin with, and though its not specified, I’m sure her job takes her outside of Europe all the time to remain as inconspicuous and indiscriminate as possible. She lures people to her will with her physicality, and I would be very surprised if a big part of her persuasiveness and charm didn’t come from her social ability – hence the requirement to know so many languages.
Demetri on the other hand, while not having a talent that necessarily needs language as a skill directly, as a person whose job is tracking people literally all over the world, I doubt it could hurt to know the spoken languages of the countries you’re travelling to.
Aro I imagine picks up language pretty well with his power? In fact, honestly Aro could easily just understand the implications and meaning from a persons mind without speaking their language, whether through imagery or having the understanding connection that comes with his telepathy. In a way I could count his telepathy as a language in itself, albeit its a one way translation, but its a means of communication nevertheless.
The inner coven speak a mixture of languages. Their native tongue is Latin, but more recently they also commonly speak in Greek and Italian. Etruscan is another one, but less commonly spoken. Its used between the leaders in public conversations where they wish to speak to amongst one another privately.
As for specifics of native languages to guard members, I imagine something like this:
Renata spoke Maltese (which at the time was apparently essentially Arabic)
Jane and Alec are both English speakers. Their language skills were very poor coming into being vampires, only ever getting the bare minimum of education as humans.
Felix spoke in Latin, being assumed (non-canonical) of origins from early Rome.
Chelsea and Afton are also both originally Latin speakers.
Heidi spoke in an earlier form of German.
Demetri had Greek (Byzantine) as his native language, but switched to a scattered mix of both Coptic and Old/Middle Egyptian after joining the Egyptian Coven.
Corin spoke in Gallic/Gaulish.
Santiago spoke Portuguese.
A lot of the time, applicant to both the inner coven and the guard, their language of choice fluctuates during the middle of a sentence, just because there’s so many, and most members there will understand them regardless.
Malfoy Flavor is so good omggggg!!! Whatare some of your other favorite fics? I've read so many of the #classics I want to find some new ones to read! Love your blog btw :)
THANK YOU SO MUCHHHHH ANON
I made a list of my all-time favorite Drarry fics over here, but I’m guessing (hoping?) most of those are already familiar. So here are some more favorite fics of mine that I thiiiink haven’t already been recced all over the place!
• and Hope to Die by olimakiella (24k)
Strategically placed pieces of Wizarding artwork are going missing in the United Kingdom. Only, when the dots are connected to a darker plot, Harry Potter learns that there are classified places in the Ministry that only few people get to see. And just what the hell is the Centre of Magical Intelligence anyway?
• The Guise of Forgiveness by SunseticMonster (23k)
George’s new potion has caught the interest of the entire Auror Department, thanks to an article by the elusive Draco Malfoy. So, when Harry sees Malfoy in the middle of a panic attack, he attempts to make amends as a ploy to find out what’s really been going on.
• Exiled by gryffindorJ (16k)
Draco is declared persona non grata by the Ministry after the War. Harry has been tasked with keeping an eye on him, ensuring he stays out of England.
• there’s a trick with a dragon I’m learning to do by curiouslyfic (20k)
Harry’s live-in’s a workaholic being courted — harassed — by an array of weeping minions and an assortment of overprivileged pricks. Harry’s bloody portraits are being harassed — courted — by, well, an assortment of things Harry doesn’t even want to think about. Harry’s had a long week already and so far, his weekend’s not looking much better. At least he can say with certainty there’s no place like home…
• Life Is The Flower (For Which Love Is The Honey) by bafflinghaze (15k)
The Malfoy Manor lands are lush and verdant. Bees hover over carpets of flowers, and ducks paddle in the pond. It is a place far removed from bustling London and pesky reporters; it is a place where Harry finds what—and who—he didn’t know he was missing.
• Settle in my slow-burning heart by Teatrolley (10k) Five years after the war Draco is working a tech developer job in the Auror Office, and it’s all great except this one thing: Harry Potter works there, too. Things only become stranger when Harry starts bringing Draco ugly souvenirs back from his work travels. When Harry then shows up injured in Draco’s flat, Draco considers the possibility that he’s going insane.
• Harry Potter and the Future He Doesn’t Really Want, Thanks. by Seefin (70k) Harry had dreamt of a car crash on the street outside the good sushi place then watched it play out two days later in front of his eyes. That had been a bad weekend. Neville and Luna alternated between tiptoeing around the place where he was curled up on the sofa and sitting with him, as he watched TV and ate chocolate digestives. Luna with her head on his shoulder and Neville holding his hand while they pretended to watch Star Wars but really just muted it and listened to Harry talk about how fucking unfair things were, and how fucking guilty he felt to think that when he was alive, and whole, and here talking to them and pretending to watch Star Wars.
When Harry dreams about his future with Draco Malfoy it isn’t like a car crash. Or maybe it is, he hasn’t decided yet. There is potential where a car crash has none. They are similar because he is scared of them both equally.
• Eternally Consistent by kitsunealyc (44k)
Draco Malfoy and Harry Potter assumed they would never be anything but civil enemies, until Potter lands on Malfoy’s doorstep, bleeding, covered in curses, and acting very strangely indeed.
• When Hearts Are Freed by oldenuf2nb (23k) When a priceless magical artifact is stolen from Draco Malfoy’s art galleria, it’s going to take all of brilliant Chief Auror Harry Potter’s experience, and a touch of ‘spiritual intervention’, for the case to be solved.
• Serpentes by xErised (29k) It’s a shame that Draco Malfoy looks so good stripping in a club with stolen snakes, because Auror Harry’s got a job to do.
• Expecto Patronum by Writcraft (35k) Harry Potter is the most sought after celebrity in wizarding Britain. His every movement is scrutinised, his relationships questioned and his photographs plastered over every paper. Harry’s used to everyone thinking he’s a hero and has had plenty of time to learn how to keep his biggest secrets hidden from the press. As Draco Malfoy negotiates his feelings for the wizarding world’s brightest star, he becomes increasingly attached to Harry and unravels the secrets he keeps hidden from the rest of the world.
• Just One of Those Things by Kedavranox (14k) Harry and Draco have sex! Featuring a Muggle curious Draco, a deliciously amused Harry and a strangely perverted Luna. Love’s a pretty scary thing when you find it. Especially when your parents just don’t get it.
• Crystal Clear by ICMezzo (6.7k) Harry customizes a snow globe. Draco listens to centaur weather reports. Ron investigates the height of Pansy’s boots. And Hermione knows even more than everything, as usual. (No one signs up for the class for lactating witches.)
• Adrift by dysonrules (13k) Auror Harry takes a vacation in the Caribbean and ends up falling from the sky, straight into the lap of Draco Malfoy, modern pirate.
Time to get off the computer and go to bed methinks. I’ve been sitting here going ‘hurrrrrr’ since getting home from voting and food shopping many many hours ago, and now I’m getting worked up about the election results so it’s time to Stop. Hopefully the world will be a better place when I wake up!
I’m just really fucking numb about what happened last night. Concerts are places of safety and happiness for so many people. I’ve been in that arena so many fucking times, seen my favourite people live there, experienced the moments of pure happiness when the lights go out and an entire arena of strangers suddenly unites in their shared love, happiness. I just don’t get it. I’m heartbroken.
So ever since I got this question a few months ago, I’ve been trying to think of a way to explain the Sun sign placements as meals. I’ve finally come up with this way that I think works pretty well.
Each sign has its own unique ingredients and the house represents what type of restaurant you would eat it in or the type of way it would be prepared. The aspects represent additions to the meal. You can really be flexible and have fun with it.
This is intended to be read leading with the Sun Sign. This does not go into the traits of the other planets or the signs they’re in, only how they relate to the Sun sign.
As far as aspects go I think it works best to focus on the conjunctions and planets in the same sign as your sun sign if you’re trying to understand its unique flavor. But you can also include the other aspects to get an extended understanding of your specific Sun sign. Either way have fun with it. Maybe you can come up with some new recipes!
Here are some examples (I just went through my itunes for people with complete charts on astrotheme):
Me - Sun in Scorpio in the 3rd House loose conjunction with Uranus (trine moon) A sweet garlic and goat stew with a little tofu added (and a feta cheese salad) served from a food truck. :-)
Lana del Rey - Sun in Gemini in the 2nd House loose conjunction with Mars in the 3rd, (opposite Neptune, and trine Pluto) Rice Cake that she made herself with a little taco truck carne asada on top, (a glass of wine and a garlic salad).
Fiona Apple - Sun conjunct moon and loosely conjunct Mercury in the 11th house A savory risotto snack bowl with added quinoa served in a sky bar
Azealia Banks - Sun in Gemini in the first house Raw granola bar from a raw foods restaurant.
Brandy - Sun in Aquarius conjunct Mercury and Mars in the 5th House Fried tofu with white rice and grilled beef from PF Chang’s
Chet Baker - Sun in Capricorn conjunct Saturn and loosely conjunct Mars and Venus in the 3rd and Mercury in the 4th A savory skewer brussel sprouts with extra brussel sprouts and veal rubbed in rice and pomegranate from a food truck.
If you can’t see the pictures or you would like to get further information on how I chose each thing keep reading.
I'm not single by choice, I just am. I think this is why.. I've done so much in my life already. I've met so many people, experienced so many things, and been so many places. I feel like the more people I meet and things I do my expectations get higher and higher. I do pretty crazy things and spontaneously go any and everywhere and I want to be with someone who's down with that and doing crazy things. so the more stuff I do and experience I keep wanting to take it to the next level and the next, trying to top the last. every time I do that I think I make it harder and harder for me to find someone that can keep up with that. idk I was just thinking and that's probably why I'm single..
This isn't a question about your sexuality I swear. I was reading through some of the older asks and I'm really glad I did. All I know about my sexuality is that I'm Not Straight™ and that's about it, so it was really helpful to see you kinda having the same things after I've been surrounded by people who are so sure about themselves.
Questioning yourself/your sexuality is an incredibly frustrating place to be in but it’s a totally healthy place to be in, I think! And the fact that so many people demand that you slap a label on yourself, try to force you to figure yourself out just to make them comfortable, is complete bullshit.
Don’t for a second think you have to figure yourself out as soon as possible. Sure, having a determined sexuality would be easier, but give yourself some time to think it over. It’s okay to do that. You have your entire life to figure yourself out. There’s no due date. Okay?
