2015-2017

My, my! Look how we’ve grown. As cosplayers and as friends. *wipes a single tear from my eye* It was a magical day in the early spring of 2015.. I had gone to comic con because I didn’t get asked to Senior Prom. Allie ( @the-mischief-managed ) was excited because the ever so famous Lettherebedoodles was going to the con. I had no idea who that was. So as we were waiting by the Evermore booth, my dad was talking to TT’s parents, and they were like “TT should be along any minute”. In a whirl wind of movement a group of Attack on Titan cosplayers descended upon us. Allie was most excited to see the Hanji cosplayer, so I assumed that was Lettherebedoodles. Then I was like…. that’s TT??? They’re their kid??? So I “know” them??? But that means…. they’re EVILTT ON DEVIANTART?! And for the brief moment they were there, they were like HI FAN, BYE FAN, and ran away. 

Since then our friendship really started as both of us trying to weasel our way into each other’s lives. From me working at Evermore, to being in art class together. 

TT is such a loving, accepting force in my life. They have helped me see things from a perspective I’ve never seen before. TT is passionate in all that they do, whether it’s analyzing an argument or developing a whole world of make-believe. They are always kind: helping siblings write papers, driving when it’s not their favorite thing to do, laughing and smiling at everything, and especially making people feel comfortable and valid. Their empathy and compassion is out of this world. They feel everything, and they feel for everyone. If you are sad or mad or happy, they are there with you 100%. And they will 100% share their feelings with you as well. TT is outgoing, confident, and strong. So, so, so strong. Like they could punch me in the face and I would love it. I love seeing them in makeup, whether it’s Sirius or Ariel or gosh dang Mad Eye Moody. I love seeing them with no makeup. They are so truly beautiful to me. And I loooove that when I get that stupid anxious voice in my head that says “Oh gosh I did that tiny awful thing, they totally hate me” I can immediately say, “That’s so untrue that your nose should be a mile long right now”. It is such a blessing and comfort to have them in my life. And they need to recognize how amazing they are, imperfections (I know, hard to believe from a Deity on Earth) and all. I love you!

I had this sudden idea , i dont really headcanon it but it seemed interesting to me , what if lance is adopted, its not really likely but maybe thats why he cherishes his family, i mean its not likely but it seems interesting,

[fandom exists to enjoy things - seriously, it doesn’t matter how likely an idea is to be canon, you are here to explore things and play with the characters you’ve come to know and love. so never hesitate to send us an ask, no matter how (un)likely it seems to be, we’re open for everything^^]

MOVING ON TO THE ACTUAL ASK,,,, THIS BREAKS MY HEART??? WOW. W O W.

Imagine tiny, 3 years old Lance in an orphanage with next to no memories of his real parents. And he’s getting along fine with the other kids, he isn’t the most popular but not the most unpopular either, but he doesn’t have real friends. Sure, there is always someone to hang out and have fun with, but no one he can come to when he’s crying over the hurt bird he found in the backyard. Crying is looked down upon - everyone has a hard life, so what business does he have crying about anything? Learn to grow up.

So young Lance learns. He learns to smile and tease and be happy and outgoing. He learns to be confident and radiate positive energy because that’s what makes people want to stick around. When he is 7 years old, he knows how to be a “cool kid”.

A year later he gets put into a foster family. A foster family with lots of other children, all older than him. They are happy and outgoing and touchy and love to hang out with him. 

[Once, just once he tested how far this love would go: he pretended to have a stomachache. His foster parents were so worried for him that they forbade him to go to school, his siblings brought him crackers and kept him company in his room while he ‘rested to get better’. His grandma went out and bought new medicine, ‘just in case it might get worse’. For Lance, it was heaven - he thought that these people might really become “family”. People that maybe, one day, he could share secrets with and depend on.]

The first time he cries is when he gets adopted into the family. He is 10 years old then; he is 10 years old and loved and knows that these people want him. 

When his family sees him crying, their reaction is not the friendly teasing he anticipates. It’s shocked faces and hugs and reassurances and, finally, laughter when he admits that he is just so happy that he couldn’t help himself. He gets his hair ruffled and arms arounds his shoulders - and when they take their picture with a “612 days in foster care: now we are one family” shield held up by him and his siblings, he later discovers that he wasn’t the only one that had tears in his eyes.

They move to the US. The first months are harsh; he has learned some English in school but it wasn’t nearly enough to keep up with the kids over here. And the first time he cries because of insults getting hurled his way, his mother comes and envelops him in a hug.

A hug.

No one laughs about his tears anymore. No one puts their image above anyone’s feelings and for the first time Lance really understands what it means to have a family. He vows to protect them all and help them in any way he can. He cooks with his mom; he talks about planes with his dad; he knits with his grandma; he does face masks with his sister; he learns how to play soccer with his brother. Once a week, they all go swimming together - they all miss the ocean. They all miss their home in Cuba.

When a few years later the topic of adoption comes up again, Lance is the first one to say “yes”. His parents look at him in surprise and for the first time ever he really tells everyone how much becoming part of their family means to him. It’s an emotional event and more than one of them ends up crying. But it’s okay: it’s okay because crying is not a bad thing here, they are family, they are each other’s support, they have hugs and shoulder pats and cuddle piles. It’s okay.

A few months later, they adopt two new children. Lance is happy and proud and makes sure to be the best big brother anyone could ever ask for. He teaches them how to tie their shoes, how to sneak out of the house, how to whistle and how to properly throw a ball. 

Not even a month later, he goes on a school trip to a planetarium. It’s when he realizes that he wants to become a pilot - he wants to reach for the stars. He wants to fly and reach for the stars and be free of judgement. He wants to fly and have a home to come back to.

When he excitedly tells his family about it, they cheer for him and support him. They help him look for programs to get into flight schools, his father lends him all the plane magazines he has, they buy glow-in-the-dark paint and paint his bedroom ceiling. They help him with his grades to get him into the Garrison flight program and when he gets accepted, they have a huge celebration party in his honor.

He never forgets the picture they made at the airport, all together, waving him goodbye.

[He misses their hugs.]

[He misses their hugs just like he misses the ocean.]

[He misses their hugs, he misses the ocean, he misses home - but over time he comes to realize that he has found a new family. A smaller one than before but one that’s just as lively, just as fun. He still misses them, of course; but this new family makes the distance between them much more bearable.]

What do you think hanji would wear to a formal event, besides her uniform? I personally couldn't imagine her wearing a dress or heels, but I wonder what you think because idk lol

As much as I love the idea of Hanji absolutely killing it in a gorgeous dress, I have a hard time imagining her wearing a dress in canon. To me, at least, wearing a formal-style dress doesn’t really fit with her character. I feel like she would want something a little more comfortable, something with more flexibility of movement. When I was deciding on her outfit for the formal event in License to Science (And Kill), I opted for a sort of elegant jumper. Something like this:

It’s sleek, elegant, and it (at least) appears to be comfortable. It worked perfectly for a modern spy AU. However, I can’t imagine anyone in the canonical snk universe wearing a jumper like this. 

When the characters aren’t in uniform, both men and women seem to wear some form of button-up shirt. For the male characters it is paired with pants, while female characters seem to primarily wear long skirts. From what I can tell, the style of clothing seems to be a blend of early 1900′s-1940′s ish fashion (though i’m certainly no expert). Using this (admittedly large) time period as a basis, I’d reason that female formal fashion in the snk universe would consist of a stylized dress, and male formal fashion would consist of some manner of suit. 

But I, like you, have a hard time imagining Hanji happily wearing a dress or heels. 

Instead, I think she’d wear something like this:

or maybe: 

Both are examples of early 20th century formal fashion that incorporates pants in the place of dresses or skirts. I could see Hanji wearing either of the above outfits in a formal setting.

Or heck, maybe she’d take after Marlene Dietrich and rock a straight up suit.

Happy Monday! I had a question. I was looping into making RP gifs for fun and because HP is such a huge part of my life and personality. I have red hair and was hoping to do some Lily or Ginny to start off with, but I'm worried/nervous because I'm plus size. Do you think that I should stick to characters like maybe Molly or other characters known to be a little more curvy?

((OOC: Absolutely not. I think you should play whichever character you love the most, or whichever you feel most comfortable playing. Both lily and Ginny are beautiful, sexy, sassy, brilliant characters and all of those traits apply ALL women including plus sized beauties. Start where you are comfortable and go from there.
RP whoever you want and don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t… and If they try I will personally fight them ❤ good luck, love.))

When you look back at a story you wrote nearly 2 years ago because you wanna rewrite it and realize that you basically based the OC character off of yourself…

That’s 42k+ words of pure self insert lmao what was I doing????

The AmeIce tag is so weird, like other ships have fanfiction, fanart, short animations, ask blogs and vine edits, and we just have… a bunch of mood boards and a handful of headcanons

It’s like the shipping equivalent of reaching into your pocket to pay for something and pulling out a crumpled one dollar bill, 3 paper clips and a gum rapper.
