At the bar, James ordered them hot buttered rum, on his parents’ tab.

“I can pay,” Sirius objected.

“But you don’t have to,” said James. “Mom and Dad said the trip’s on them. That includes everything. Anyway, it’s not like we’re going on a bender; it’s just one drink.”

They found a table by the bank of large windows that overlooked the mountain slope and the picturesque town of Leavenworth below.

“So,” said James, “are you ever going to tell me what happened?”

This chapter gave me a lot of trouble, y’all. For some reason I had a very hard time bringing it to life. I hope it works now.

Series: Part 1 of Click for Extras

The Dark Lord wanted a consort and had decided to host a competition that involved nearly everyone in Britain. If they thought they were good enough, they could enter to compete in a certain amount of tasks set by the Lord of the lands himself. Only the victor would have the skills necessary to become Voldemort’s consort.

Harry unfortunately nabs the Dark Lord’s attention. Voldemort does as he pleases.

Hermione enters to win, Bellatrix takes interest in certain people, and of course there’s the villain causing trouble.

A/N: SLASH/Harrymort/AU. I’m still waiting for someone to tell me exactly how this sounds like Harry is a slave. Please do so. Nothing at all would suggest it. How about we don’t assume that because the word “consort” is involved, it must *obviously* be about slavery. Does anyone actually know what a consort is?

Summary: Qui-Gon Jinn was a man haunted by his past, and he kept those secrets guarded close, never speaking of his past to his Padawan Anakin Skywalker. Never, that is, until his emotions are too great and his curious Padawan asks again at just the right moment. Little did he know that the real truth was hidden in the shadows of a forgotten Sith Temple.

Pidge: Ok, so don’t get too excited, but I’ve worked out a way to connect the laptop to the internet…
Lance: Pidge how the quiznak did you think I was not going to get excited about this?!?!?!
Hunk: Anything I can help with?
Pidge: Ok, so the thing is that from our end it’s pretty simple right, I mean it’s just a case of sending and receiving correctly coded signals, and my laptop has the inbuilt hardware for all that. The real problem is that we’re light years away, and even with the ship’s range, it’d take years for our signal to reach Earth, and we can’t use the speed-enhanced Altean frequencies because it has to fit in with the existing architecture, and then coming back there isn’t enough range anyway and-
Keith: Pidge, breathe
Pidge: …Anyway, if we had a way to transport the signals instantly we could simply relay them back and forth through, say, a wormhole specifically designed to transport waves rather than matter?
Hunk: But the only way to do that is if….
Pidge: … yeah

Shiro: I can’t believe you’re seriously debating asking the princess to use her Altean energy so the castle can get a wifi signal
Shiro: *leaves*
Other paladins: *ashamed shuffling*
Five minutes later
Shiro, running back into the room: SHE SAID YES!!

Well someone once reminds me that Saeyoung wanted a real family..

Saeyoung sleeping with the babies because ha-neul doesn’t want to let go of him. Ha-yun just copying him.

Oh and look finally the mcs appeared in this au. In case you guys don’t know the left one is saeran’s, the right is saeyoung’s. Yeah my au is kinda complicated. I will try to explain later-  😂

The picture of saeyoung and babies is based on a video. Another quickie art of MM before I start cramping myself with commissions.


theatre au for your otp
  • they work as actors in a theatre and the theatre is putting on phantom of the opera
  • they get cast as raoul and the phantom
  • they are really good actors (and singers) so they think the other likes the girl playing christine
  • so there starts to be a thing that starts with them flirting with the girl to make the other jealous
  • but then because they’re both doing it they start to sort of fight over the girl
  • and they’re really just trying to impress the other
  • and the girl figures it out and she’s gay and has a girlfriend
  • so on the opening night she tells them both she hopes it goes well because her girlfriend is in the audience
  • and they sort of look at each other and look at her and leave blushing furiously
  • and ten minutes later they reappear and the guy playing raoul almost gets killed by hair and makeup because it’s ten minutes till the curtain goes up and his hair is a wreck and several of his shirt buttons are undone and he’s “meant to be a handsome stately count and he looks like he fell in a ditch”
  • and the guy playing the phantom gets off with a warning because he’s not on for a while but “this better not happen again or you’ll be playing joseph buquet and we won’t use a prop”
  • so they don’t make out just before performances again for fear of their lives
  • but the people on the front row can see raoul in the corner watching very intently in point of no return
  • and the phantom is surprisingly gentle with raoul when he is meant to be strangling him
  • and should christine be smirking to the side???? shouldn’t she be horrified that the phantom is trying to kill her fiancé???
  • and the producers are terrified that it’s going to flop because it was glaringly obvious that raoul and the phantom are gay for each other
  • it doesn’t but it is mentioned in every single review that there was a “certain extra tension” between them
  • and all three of them get chewed out for it so after opening night they get back into their heterosexual roles
  • and the girlfriend of the girl playing christine finds it all absolutely hilarious

So lets talk about Lion 4 real quick. It was leaked and people are already saying it was a wasted episode. They’re hoping for more plot development in regards to the Diamonds, Homeworld, the war, and corruption. I understand where they are coming from. However, the show is following the same platform its established for itself in seasons passed and Lion 4 was about Steven’s character development.

Steven isn’t a kid anymore, he’s shouldered a lot of responsibility and experienced a lot of horrible things. We’ve seen him struggle with insecurity about being Rose Quartz and Rose’s kid. He believes the Crystal Gems expect him to be as capable as Rose and his enemies confuse him with Rose Quartz. He’s both admitted he’s not rose quartz (Steven vs. Amethyst) and expressed a desire to be more like rose quartz (Storm in the room, pink hair). He grew up with his mom on a pedestal and has to come to learn the great and terrible things she’s done in her lifetime. Rose didn’t do things without a purpose or a plan and with Steven knowing that, coupled with all his own trauma, would naturally start to believe he was made for a purpose.

Lion 4 is Steven dealing with that concept. “She made me for something”, “I have a destiny”, “there has to be a plan” - all ideas Steven presented again and again. This isn’t a kid with a magical destiny he has to fulfill. This is a traumatized kid reaching for any rational explanation about the things he’s been through. Then he’s confronted with a fact: Rose didn’t have a plan for him. There’s no ultimate goal for him. The things he’s been through are not preplanned events leading him to greater purpose. He is, in fact, the byproduct of a loving relationship that wanted their child to be whoever they chose to be. Nothing more.

This was a character development episode and its also important for the viewers to understand that this isn’t a destiny fulfillment show. This is a show about a kid growing up, learning extraordinary things, and dealing with terrible situations that no one has control over. The show may not lead to a war with Homeworld and a confrontation with the Diamond authority, we should be prepared for that. Steven may never liberate all gem-kind, he may never cure corruption, and he may never be more than Steven Universe. He could just be a kid like you trying to make the best of the life he has.

AU idea that was inspired by a Whisper confession:

Person A, B, C, D, etc. are all friends (or some of them are lovers, your pick). A and B are roommates who live close by/down the hall from Person C and D. Think of the Friends dynamic. One day, B comes home early and finds A’s “mother” (agent) in their apartment talking to A. B notices how the conversation immediately shifts into something else, but can’t figure out why. They all talk for a few minutes, before A’s mother excuses herself to leave.

“Something’s wrong,” B says immediately. “What’s going on?”

A won’t tell them, but a week later, A, B, C, D, etc. are all over at A and B’s place for an early dinner. A really fancy early dinner. B has a sinking feeling in their gut, especially since they had to leave later that night to catch a super, super (like 4am) flight for their work.

“Guys, I have something important to tell you,” A says. They’re nervous and look like they’re trying not to cry. “Despite trying not to, I’ve grown really close to you guys. You are my best friends. And what I’m about to say is going to suck.” They take a deep breath.

“My name isn’t actually [A]. I can’t tell you my real name. For the past seven years, I’ve been in witness protection. Tomorrow, I have to leave for my own safety. I will never see any of you again.”

Your choice on what happens next.

I’m thinking either A and B (or C or D…or all) confess their love for each other and make the most of their last night.

Or one of them was actually a fake and works for/is part of (or the entire) reason A has to be in protection for the first place.

Or you can make it super angsty and sad.

Or kill A in front of everyone.

Take this idea and run with it guys.
