Even the smallest bit of positivity can make the biggest difference.

My own "5 character that seriously needs a hug" list: Avitus, Jaal (So many existential crises in such little time, GOOD LORD!), DRACK, Sloane (I also think Reyes has a need for a hug too, but if I'm honest, he'd be my number 6 pick for me), Aaaaand I would also agree on Addison (Especially after reading Nexus Uprising, she desperately needs some love dghsjkagd)

Yeah so:

-Avitus: Should have been in my list!!!!!!!

-Jaal: I definitely tried to put it in my list but figured he would be sixth? I also thought he could get hugs a bit more easily than others? 

-Drack: Oh yeah. Definitely should have been in my list 

-Sloane: I don’t think she needs a hug. I think she’s gone past that. Though to be honest, it depends on her perspective. I don’t think, from her pov, that she needs a hug. But from my pov, she sure does. 

-Addison: She strikes me as someone who has received no hugs or love in months and would melt in the person’s arms. 

Books can be possessive, can’t they? You’re walking around in a bookstore and a certain one will jump out at you, like it had moved there on its own, just to get your attention. Sometimes what’s inside will change your life, but sometimes you don’t even have to read it. Sometimes it’s a comfort just to have a book around. Many of these books haven’t even had their spines cracked. ‘Why do you buy books you don’t even read?’ our daughter asks us. That’s like asking someone who lives alone why they bought a cat. For company, of course.

I should be sleeping but my brain is just saying “You promised you’d paint some Reyes, you have painted zero Reyes today, you are a traitor, Reyes, Reyes, Reyes”

So, there are people who prefer bro!Ryder/Reyes, and some who prefer femRyder/Reyes… but I ship Reyes full stop. Like, he’s bi, I’m a fan, if it’s got Reyes in it, I’m on that ship.

And I thought, that can’t be true. There have to be limits, who wouldn’t I ship Reyes with?

Sloane Kelly? No, if someone writes that I will totally read it.

Director Addison? Again, I’d read that.

Avitus Rix? I’m cool with that.

William Spender? eeeeehh… still could do it.

Drack? I honestly don’t know. I would go down with the Drack/Lexi ship. It gets weirder thinking about Reyes with squadmates. For whatever reason.

Someone save me. This is what my brain is doing at 2:30 in the morning. I think I might have a freaking flotilla by now. If it’s flying a Reyes flag, it’s there.

So my chorus teacher finally read a book

He’s been reading the Percy Jackson series for about a month now and he just finished, he walked up to me this morning and said, “So, Addison, what should I read next?” And I told him about the Heroes of Olympus series, and he asked if it had Annabeth in it. I said yes, and he said, “Good. I was really glad when Percy and Annabeth got together. If they didn’t, I probably would have burned down the library.” I think I turned my teacher into a hardcore Percabeth shipper.
