B99 + Adoption AU: in which Raymond and Kevin adopt Jake as a baby.

Raising Jacob isn’t easy. 

When they finally bring him home (once all the paperwork is approved, several months after Raymond found him abandoned at a crime scene), Jacob crawls over to Cheddar’s bowl and chokes on a dog biscuit. Kevin is frantically trying to explain the situation to a 911 dispatcher when his husband calmly announces he’s successfully performed the Heimlich maneuver. The moment of panic over, Jacob babbles loudly, grins, and places a slobbery hand on Raymond’s face. 

When he enters 4th grade (at the private school Kevin had chosen for its exemplary curriculum, prime student-to-faculty ratio, and exquisite lunch program; and Raymond had chosen for its safe and secure environment), Jacob is sent to the principal’s office for punching Keith Pembroke in the face. Initially, his fathers are confused because he had always been excellent at responding to bullies – they had made sure to brief him on what he might hear, being the adopted son of two gay men. When they find out he had reacted to a slur Keith had used against another student, and when the administrators still insist on punishing Jacob for his actions, Raymond and Kevin gladly move their child to a nearby public school.

When he first gets his heart broken (on the day of his bar mitzvah, which Raymond and Kevin had dedicated a year planning for), Jacob locks himself in a closet and cries for over an hour. Raymond is offended their hard work went unappreciated, but Kevin ignores his complaints and instead knocks on the door and gently coaxes Jacob to let him in. After another 15 minutes of sobbing against his father’s shoulder, he croaks out a semi-coherent explanation involving Jenny Gildenhorn, Eddie Fung, and stupid love songs. Kevin cheers him up by making his favorite breakfast for dinner and recounting the greatest love stories in Greek mythology. 

When he arrests a perp for the first time (after spending every summer at CSI camp, joining the junior police program, and finally completing his academy training), Jacob pays his fathers a visit in his newly acquired secondhand Mustang. Kevin is appalled he made such an impulsive purchase, especially after everything they had taught him about saving money. Raymond tries to hold back tears of pride as Jacob points out the dent that formed when he had thrown the guy against the car.

When he falls in love for realz (with his partner, Amy Santiago – and honestly, Raymond had seen this coming since eight-year-old Jacob started pulling her pigtails at CSI Camp), Jacob’s fear of commitment almost screws up their relationship. Kevin had always been the one to help him navigate his girl and boy issues, but this time, Raymond sits him down and tells him about how they first got Gertie. It’s a story Jacob has heard once or twice before, but it still pushes him to sell the crappy Mustang they had been fighting about and purchase a brand new, fuel-efficient, crash-tested (and interestingly) family-friendly car. 

Raising Jacob isn’t easy, but hot damn, it sure is worth it.

I’m Here For You - Jughead x Reader

Request — Anonymous asked: Could you do something where the reader is always relatively outgoing and tries her best to keep everyone happy and always jokes but Jughead finds out that the reader’s parents are verbally abusive and the reader is very depressed and insecure?

A/N — GUYS I am so incredibly sorry for not updating like I promised, school has been extremely stressful and I’m currently in the middle of changing schools as I am not happy at the one I’m already enrolled in. But anyway, I do apologise for not updating for so long, but here it something that hopefully makes your day!

Words: 1153

Warnings: Fighting, Verbal abuse, signs of depression and insecurities

(Y/N) , (Y/L/N) , (E/C) — Your name, your last name, eye colour

It was just another one of those days at Riverdale High. Reggie was teasing Dilton Doiley in the hallway, Kevin was gossiping, as always, to Veronica and Betty about the infamous Cheryl Blossom, the local sweetheart Archie Andrews was practising his music with Ms Grundy, and last but not least, Jughead Jones, Riverdale’s lone wolf, was casually sitting by himself in the student lounge, coffee on the table in front of him with a laptop perched on his lap. Along in the student lounge sat (Y/N) (Y/L/N), keeping to herself as she always did every morning. She was always seen as such a bubbly and confident personally, but something was off about her. The first person to notice was Jughead himself. Of course, he didn’t want to interfere, as he was battling his own issues in his life, but she was stuck in his mind that whole day.

You sat there in that crowded room. Kept to yourself, nice and quiet. People greeted you that morning and all you could do was reply with a smile. Veronica, Betty and Kevin walked in, laughing as usual to something funny they were just discussing. You knew they would come up and speak to you like they always did most mornings. And you also knew that you couldn’t deny the fact if you told them you were ‘okay’, because you really weren’t and know Veronica, she always found a way to see right through someone, and that was a risk.

“Good morning, sleepyhead!” Kevin singed to you, making you jump a little from the sudden action.

“Wow Kevin, you should totally audition for American Idol or something.” Veronica said sarcastically, making Kevin scoff dramatically. “What’s up, buttercup?” She asked, sitting on the armrest beside you.

“Uh, nothing much!” You tried covering up, with your usual happy voice and bright smile. “Just so tired, was up all night studying for that test on Tuesday.”

Lies. Well, not entirely true. The up all night part was right, but studying? Not so much. The reason (Y/N) was up all night was because of what was going on in her house.

Her parents were fighting, almost getting the extreme cases were she would have 911 on speed dial on her phone. It wasn’t physically, but it was loud. Too loud in fact. She was worried the whole neighbourhood would hear them. But as he always tried making situations better, she interfered, but it made it worse. By this time, she was up in her room, sitting on her bed, trying to not cry as she didn’t want to make them more angry. She never fell asleep that night.

Unlucky for Jughead, he was walking home from Archie’s one night when he heard the screams. He instantly knew it was (Y/N)’s house. He knew if he knocked on the door, it could escalate. He ran behind a bush, listening in knowing that if it did get worse, he would call the police. And as soon as he crouched down, it all went quiet. Peeking up to look at the house, the lights were all off, signalling that they all went to sleep. He stood up, up at her window. Light completely off. He took out his phone which sat in the pocket of his jacket, going through his contacts and selected her number. He hesitated before doing so. They only talked a handful of times, he did like her, but he knew something was up and he didn’t want to interfere. He shook his doubts, typing away before clicking send and shoving his phone back in his pocket. One last glance, he walked back to the Drive In to where he lived.

The end of science class was the relief to your day. Keen to get out of the classroom, you gathered your things and stuffed them in your bag, taking your time as you wanted to be as far away from everybody. The only other person competing with you still in the class was Jughead. You looked up every now and then as you continued putting your things away. Just as you remembered, you hadn’t checked your phone since that yesterday afternoon before the fight. You turned on your phone, sitting back down in your seat, waiting for your phone to startup. The room was quiet, although you could hear Jughead’s steady breathing. As soon as your phone buzzed, signalling it was turned on, another vibration went through your hand. The long awaited messaged was finally received.

‘Jughead: I’m here for you’

All she did was just read that message over and over again. She noticed everyday after school, Jughead, Archie and her would get the bus home every afternoon, the two of them going in the same direction as she just went home. Everyone knew Jughead lived at the Drive In, yet the rumour was that it was going to be demolished by Archie’s dad’s company with a little help from Hiram Lodge, Veronica’s dad. She quickly put her phone back in her pocket, zipping up her backpack as she slung it over her shoulder. She got up from sitting at her desk before slowly making her way to Jughead’s.

“Why did you send the message?” (Y/N) asked, standing directly opposite him.

“Look, I mean, I didn’t want to interfere or anything but..”

“You heard, didn’t you.” She cut him off, looking down at the floor in guilt. All he could do was nod.

“(Y/N), I’ve seen you a lot lately looking down and believe me, I have my own problems I should be working on and trying to fix, but I just.. I don’t know.” Jughead sighed, shrugging his shoulders.

“Jughead.. I..I,” You paused, looking back up into his eyes. “Thank you. It’s just, well, right now I’m shocked. I mean, no offence but you don’t seem like the type of person to ask if anyone would be okay.” She sarcastically said, making him chuckle along with herself.

“Well yeah but, with you, I can make an exception.” Those words? Our of Jughead Jones’ mouth? That couldn’t have just happened.

Wait, wait… why me?” She said, almost in a whisper. There was a pause, not too long but not too short.

“Maybe because I like you?” He went serious at this point. “Maybe because I’ve been a chicken to confess that I liked you since you came to school?”

“Jughead, thank you. Not for telling me you like me, but for just caring enough to ask if I’m okay.”  She smiled at him, closing her eyes as she placed a soft kiss against his cheek. She opened her eyes once again before fixing the bag that was clung onto her shoulder. She smiled at him before walking off into the busy hallways once again. Jughead stood there, a goofy smile playing on his lips before snapping back into reality.

A/N —Thank you guys so much for waiting so long! I feel like this wasn’t exactly how I hoped the request thought it would be, but my mind is literally a mess at the moment so I apologise in advance. I hope you enjoy it because I tried my hardest as I haven’t written in so long, but yeaaahh

Save Justice League Action!

I noticed that the Cartoon Network show Justice League Action hasn’t been renewed and may face cancellation! We have to save this show! There have been 52 episodes made with 24 aired in the UK and about 14 episodes here in the USA. Thanks to the ever present Teen Titans Go, this show has not been given the proper credit it deserves with a 7:30 AM on a Saturday timeslot. This show actually is really funny with both non-reference humor and reference humor regarding the source material! This show has fricking Kevin Conroy as Batman in it!And Mark Hamill playing both Joker and Swamp Thing! What more could you ask for?! I don’t want a good show like this to be tossed in the dump with even being given a chance!

Let’s save Justice League Action!

Remember, watch JLA as it airs at 7:30 AM on Saturdays!

It’ll be tough getting up that early but,… fingers crossed….



Y’all. Have been waiting. For this. For a while. AND I’M SORRY IT TOOK SO LONG. 

I’M NOT GONNA TELL YOU GUYS WHO THIS IS GONNA BE ABOUT IN THE BEGINNING. You’ll figure it out pretty quickly. But like. Meh. I like pretending I’m sneaky.  Ya, he’s kinda asshole… ish. In this. But meh. I dunno.

Anywho, this is a feels trip. I have been working on this FOR WEEKS. Like. Usually doesn’t happen. But ya know. Word. I’ve been in a weird funk. Hopefully this helps me get outta it.

I knooooow people are gonna say something about this not being a realistic amount of time to be angry but. Yes it is. Bc for me, when I get into a fight, I kick and scream for an hour then ya know. Like people are human (HA) and you can usually tell if they genuinely feel bad. Plus, it’s been a month, come on people.

I really really wanted to write this and for some reason, no matter what I do, it just isn’t coming out the way I want it to. Sorry if it is trash :’)

(Veronica x Reader): It’s a Quintessential Rite of Passage

Summary: The Drive In is closing and everyone is going, it’s a rite of passage to go with a date after all. Reader has a crush on Veronica and is trying to figure out how to make it a date and admit her feelings.

Word Count: 2716

Warnings: (Kissing I guess)

Author’s Note: This gets a little bit rambly in the readers thoughts but I figured that’s pretty on brand for the character but it is a little hard to read (apologies for any spelling/grammar mistakes)

You were sitting in your booth at Pop’s with the rest of the gang, minus Archie, you were squeezed in on one side of the booth by Jughead and Betty, Kevin and Veronica were across the table from you. You’d been picking at your fries as Jughead angrily ate most of them while complaining about how the drive-in was closing. Everyone else was listening quietly, no one really cared as much as Jughead, but all of you were trying to be supportive.

‘Split’ isn’t degrading to mental illnesses (SPOILERS)

Ever since the first appearance of the trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s new movie, Split, people have been freaking out.  The movie, starring James McAvoy, depicts a man dealing with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID).  His personalities turn violent, and he ends up kidnapping 3 girls and being violent towards them.  Most people’s reactions to the premise of the movie were afraid that it was portraying DID in a harsh light, and that it wasn’t a fair representation of those actually dealing with DID.  The problem with this is that most people criticising the movie haven’t actually watched it, and, if they had, I’m sure they would have different opinions.

The first half of the film does a fairly good job at depicting someone with DID.  It follows the DSM-5 criteria to a tee.  Bolded are the exact DSM-5 diagnostic criteria, and below, how the movie does a good job representing this.

A.  Disruption of identity characterised by two or more distinct personality states, which may be described in some cultures as an experience of possession.  The disruption in identity involves marked discontinuity in sense of self and sense of agency, accompanied by related alterations in affect, behaviour, consciousness, memory, perception, cognition, and/or sensory-motor functioning.  These signs and symptoms may be observed by others or reported by the individual.

While the DSM states that two or more distinct personality states must be present, the main character (who uses many different names, though his true name is Kevin, which I will be using throughout this piece) has an observed 23.  Each state has a very distinct personality throughout the movie, with a different persona, way of dressing, list of interests, etc.  These range from a violent, obsessive compulsive Dennis (the most prominent, who kidnaps the girls) to the state of a 9-year-old boy named Hedwig who loves Kanye West and dancing.  While the criteria is two or more states, there is no limit, so it is entirely reasonable for Kevin to have this many.

B. Recurrent gaps in the recall of everyday events, important personal information, and/or traumatic events that are inconsistent with ordinary forgetting.

This is so evident and heartbreaking in the movie when, near the end, Kevin reverts back to his true self.  Upon seeing a dead body on the floor, he asks another character (Casey) who had hurt her.  When he realises that it was him that had done it, he is devastated.  He had no memory of it and asks if it is still a certain date in 2014, as that is the last that Kevin remembers being conscious on. The guilt even causes him to ask Casey to murder him with his own gun.

C. The symptoms cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other import areas of functioning.

In identifying abnormal behaviour, distress is one of the things necessary to do so.  This distress isn’t always clear to the individual acting out this abnormal behaviour but instead is sometimes very clear to others.  Kevin’s many personalities treat these kidnapped girls in distressing ways and causes him to, at times, act socially impaired, but he does not realise it because of his disorder.  Anyone else stumbling on this situation, including his therapist, Dr. Fletcher, certainly finds it abnormal.

D. The disturbance is not a normal part of a broadly accepted cultural or religious practice. 

I think this is very clear, even with limited knowledge of the film.  The setting is in America, and kidnapping and violence is not accepted there.

E. The symptoms are not attributable to the physiological effects of a substance or another medical condition.

The only substance or other medical condition involved in this film is insulin, which one of Kevin’s personalities must take.

So, there we have it.  Kevin has every single diagnostic criterion for DID.  Even outside of the specific criteria, he displays many other commonly found features in those with DID.  For example, 90% have had some sort of abuse early on in life.  Kevin’s father left him (it is not clear why, and some have speculated that he didn’t leave, but actually died, though it is not confirmed) and his mother was abusive.  This onset of abuse is typically when a first personality emerges, as is true with Kevin, as the personality of Dennis emerged to prevent his mother’s abuse.  The personality is usually a way of protection against the self, and Dennis’ OCD and constant cleaning protected Kevin from many of the reasons for his mother’s abuse.

One of the movie’s biggest complaints is that it promotes the idea that those with mental illness are violent.  It has been proven that those with a mental illness (aside from Antisocial Personality Disorder) are no more violent than those without mental illness, so this is not an unreasonable opinion.  There is a 1.5% prevalence of DID among males, and among those with DID, more males are likely to become display criminal or violent behaviours (both of these statements are directly from the DSM-5).  Because of this, it is completely believable that someone with DID could become violent to the point of Kevin’s personalities in the film.  While it may not be a fair representation of anyone with a mental illness, it is still possible, and movies are constantly being made about unlikely events.

The second half of the movie does get a little silly.  As soon as the character display’s a 24th personality, and has somewhat superhuman abilities, the typical characteristic’s of an M.Night Shyamalan movie come out.  I will not argue that this is where the movie goes downhill.  It turns out that the entire movie was a spin-off of one of M. Night’s earlier films, ‘Unbreakable’.  Had this not have been the case, ‘Split would have been such a better film, at least in my opinion.  This ending does not ruin the movie in any way, though; it just forces you to question the limits to what are possible.

My only reservations about the treatment of mental health in this film are some of the therapist’s actions. Being worried about Kevin and his future actions, she takes a cab to his residence.  She goes into his home, unarmed, and without notifying anyone, even though she has reason to believe that he is about to become violent.  This is very unprofessional for a therapist and is the reason that her character dies.

While I understand that it can be difficult to watch a movie depicting mental illness, especially if you suffer from one yourself, I strongly believe that ‘Split’ does not deserve the hate it has been getting.  Before criticising it, please watch it before forming such a strong opinion.  It is important to realise that every mental disorder is different, and every person dealing with a mental disorder experiences it in a different way.

eene-fangirl  asked:

Does Nazz repress anger?

I think Nazz is very repressed.  I wouldn’t suggest she has the sort of untapped rage inside her that Eddy or Kevin seem to have bottled up for any opportunity, but she’s definitely a very internalized character.  She lets out most of her rage in those moments where she thoughtlessly joins the kids’ mobs.   However, when she’s behaving as a unique character, it seems like the point is that she doesn’t know what she wants to express about herself, stifling most of her strong emotions to the point that “I’ve had cocoa before” seems like an urgent statement in her mind.

The times when Nazz seems to be repressing anger the most is toward Kevin, as I keep bringing up how each season gradually packs in more little moments of Nazz disagreeing with Kevin’s actions even as the rest of the kids support him.  At times I feel like Nazz is a victim of Kevin’s attention-hogging showboating in a way that parallels Eddy’s more direct and physical rivalry, because Kevin frequently distracts the kids from following Nazz’s common sense and living in peace.
