and its when they bring their kids into work

Here it is - the final, official post on my fic ‘Little White Lies’! 


Summary: 

“I lied when I got my job.

I told them I had a kid so I could leave early ‘to pick him up from day care’, to take him to doctors appointments and occasionally miss a day 'when he’s sick’. Long story short – I’m in too deep. I didn’t think this through.

Looking to rent a kid for bring your child to work day. Must be a boy aged 4 to 6 with curly hair who plays soccer, essentially he has to look like the stock photo in the frame on my desk. Also must be artistic as the macaroni noodle drawings I made seem a little advanced for someone his age. He also needs to respond to 'my Little Picasso’ as that’s what my spouse and I call him. Also I will pay extra for someone willing to play the role of my spouse when dropping him off. His name is James, he’s named after his grandpa and he’s a defense attorney who often brings his work home.

You know what, just message me for the details, serious inquiries only. H.”

Or, the AU based off of that one Craigslist post - how a little white lie takes on an enormous snowball effect, that might accidentally include a Tomlinson too.

Does Bendy allow a "bring your child to work" day, or does everyone that works there not have a child/it's not allowed? I think I would find it funny for the studio to have a BYCTW day and the children just go fangirling over the fact that Bendy is real.

He’d probably love it when staff members bring their kids in cuz he’s just good with kids and like
Years later they come back to the studio as adults and Bendy’s just like
“Oh Whoa, wait I remember you! Yer Wally’s kid! I haven’t seen ya in years when’d ya get so tall???”

I feel like this is a well known headcanon but Caitlin Farmer is majoring in marine biology and is the coolest fucker anyone on SMH team has ever met. Also a bit of chowder because you know they’re soulmates.

  • She went on one of those sleepovers that aquariums do for little kids when she was like seven and fell in love with the ocean.
  • she put her sleeping bag under the shark tunnel and didn’t sleep all night because she just wanted to be friends with them whenver they swam past.
  • she’s been to an aquarium in every city she’s been to.
  • some people’s first port of call in new cities are nice restaurants or art galleries. cait’s are aquairums
  • she only goes to ones that respect their animals and care for them, with programs to rehabilitate sea animals and release them

(i got real excited so this got long the rest is under the cut!)

So at least on my dash, nobody ever drags the xxTPs, so I'mma do it really fast bc y'all really piss me off from time to time.

Like would it kill you to NOT critique rules from time to time trying to find all the damn loopholes? Like pls can u not. LIKE SURPRISINGLY JUST BC SOMETHING DOESN’T MAKE SENSE TO YOU DOESN’T MEAN IT’S NOT SENSIBLE IN THE LONG RUN?? Like is it so hard to realize that if you take into account EVERY SINGLE tiny ass thing you guys pick out, nothing would ever get done???

Rules, laws, procedures, etc, they’re there to make things easier. And like?? Honestly fuck you, ExTPs? Stop blatantly doing the loophole thing that the rules don’t cover just because you can. Y'all are so damn full of acting like a dick while not coming up with PROPER SOLUTIONS. And you, IxTPs? Just stop. You may not outwardly defy the untold laws, but you still don’t come up with solutions like the shut in you are.

Keep to your own crap and leave laws alone.

*huggles u* can I has some Hamliza cuddles ;v;

Yes, hello and welcome back to beans and the encyclopedia of cuddles, today we have Hamliza to observe, shall we?


  • Alexander its your turn to get the baby cuddle: They have just put all the kids down to sleep. The parents are now in the tightest embrace possible, Hamilton is literally clinging to Eliza full force, she’s got her face in his shoulder when the baby monitor goes off. She peels her face away and shoves him away. “Your turn” Alexander tries to hug her from behind but she keeps butt bumping him until he gets the baby.
  • I’ll be there in just a minute save my plate: Alexander is working through dinner, Eliza brings him his food and he’s still not eating, she curls up on his lap with his plate and literally starts feeding him while he works. They look so dumb but he eats and once he’s done he holds on to Eliza and continues until the food is down. She loves him, he works too hard. 
  • Helpless Cuddles: Eliza springboard jumps from the bed into Alex’s arms when h comes home from work. He drops all his stuff to catch her in a panic then falls back. She cuddles, they roll around like two kids, laughing the entire time. He leans on his side and brushes some hair out of her face and beams, he’s in love.

bittersamgirlclub TOP 5 PROMPT #11: TOP 5 SAM-PRAISE MOMENTS 

Making this made me feel all warm and squishy inside, there are many other little moments I could have chosen and that makes me very happy. Sometimes it feels like Sam is so underappreciated, both in fandom and in universe, so to focus on all those moments where characters talk or feel about Sam the same way we do is just wonderful.

These are not necessarily in any order, although those first two are pretty much interchangeably in first place.

  1. Marie - Fan Fiction - I just love how with three words Marie manages to sum up so much of what we all adore about Sam, those core facets of his being that make Sam so beautiful. But what I love even more is “there’s nothing he can’t do”. There’s something so powerful about that, and it’s so true on so many levels. The way in which Sam has defied destiny and other’s expectations for him, time and again. Working his way to a full ride to Stanford. Building himself a new life, not once, but twice from the ground up. Overcoming the devil. How could anyone not believe that Sam is capable of anything after reading about that! The other thing I love about Marie is that, although she exists in universe, she gives us an out of universe perspective on Sam, in that sense I find her, and her praise of Sam to be very relatable, it feels as if I am being voiced directly through the show. Of course the fact that Sam did not hear this praise saddens me, but I think it is incredibly important that Dean did hear it, to be reminded of all those things that deep down he knows, and loves about his brother.
  2. Jess - Pilot - I think its no secret how much I adore Sam/Jess and their relationship. Of course we only get tiny slivers of their life together, these fleeting moments, but ones like this especially I think illuminate their relationship perfectly. In this scene, Jess makes absolutely sure that Sam knows how proud of him she is, bringing up his LSAT score, praising how amazing it is, making sure he knows she’s serious when she says she’s proud, that she wasn’t just kidding around, that she really means its and that she believes in him. I think Jess was painfully aware of how little, if ever, Sam had been exposed to the concept of someone being proud of him and that intentionally worked to rectify that at every available opportunity (I might have written a little ficlet about this *cough*shamelessplug*cough*). We hear in ‘Phantom Traveller’ that apparently John expressed his pride in Sam to others, but clearly withheld it from Sam himself, the fact that Jess goes out of her way to ensure that Sam knows how she feels is just SO important.
  3. Mr Wyatt - After School Special - This episode in general is just EVERYTHING to me, but this moment in particular is incredibly special and I think actually instrumental in shaping Sam. I think its quite likely given Sam’s reaction to thinking the Mr Wyatt was going to fail him, that prior to this scene Sam was actually rather apathetic about school, moving from place to place, never being able to make real connections, he probably loved learning and studying but was unable to find reasons to really care about doing well when in a few days he’d be off to the next school anyway, when he saw nothing in his future but more of what his entire life had been, death and danger and loneliness. Mr Wyatt not only praised Sam’s academic abilities, but more importantly he allowed Sam to believe that there could be something beyond his current life, that he was capable of escaping that, of building something of his own.
  4. Dean - Scarecrow - I love, love, love this moment! Firstly, I’m pretty certain that this is the first time Sam has heard the words “I’m proud of you” from anyone other than Jess, look at his reaction, he’s completely at a loss for what to do or say and just taken aback entirely. What’s also important here is what Dean is praising Sam for. Dean is saying that he’s proud of Sam for the very things that go Sam disowned and dissociated from his family, for things that Dean in the past (and sadly will again in the future) had criticised Sam for. Standing up to John and forging his own way were actions that Sam had been led to believe time after time were deep and terrible betrayals and things that he should feel ashamed of, that Dean in this moment acknowledges that they are in fact great strengths and worthy of admiration is just so incredibly important.
  5. Sarah - Clip Show - I actually think this one is a little odd, because I think what Sarah is picking up on here is Sam’s determination to finish the trails and to 'right’ all the perceived wrongs he was done, to make up for all the ways he believes he’s let Dean down, and I can’t really feel that that is a positive thing. On the other hand, Sarah a) doesn’t know the context of what she’s seeing, she’s genuinely trying to and say something good about Sam b) at this point in the season people who bolster Sam in anyway, especially to his face, are so few and far between that anything along those lines is like manna in the desert….

sunflowerchester — I finally finished it! hahah…

Professor Jones

This is an alternate universe fic. Emma is a college graduate student and Killian is her professor. Smuttiness ensues. This is rated M for mature. Please enjoy the naughty goodness. This and my other stories are also on FanFiction.net.

chapter 2 / chapter 3/ Chapter 4/ Chapter 5/ Chapter 6/ Chapter 7/ Chapter 8

Emma wiped her hands on her jeans and braced herself. Walking into Professor Jones class took herculean effort. She would deny it until her last breath, but she swore the air seemed to sizzle when they were together. If the Maritime History class hadn’t been one of the required courses for her graduate course she would have bailed. She tried to switch professors but was denied as the other professor’s class was full. She took a deep breath, opened the door of the lecture hall and quickly blew it out in relief. The hall was empty. Confused and a little irritated that she hadn’t been given notice, she assumed class was canceled. She turned on her heels and headed back out the door when she heard the smooth voice.
“Going somewhere Swan?”
She hated when he called her that. She had asked him to please call her Emma for the better part of three weeks with no results. She hadn’t seen him sitting in the chair adjacent to the lecture podium. With his signature, all black attire, he blended seamlessly into the dark. It annoyed her that a professor would wear tight black jeans and black shirts. What the hell kind of teacher dresses like that anyway she thought. The black shouldn’t surprise her since he practically radiated darkness. Sexy, gorgeous, darkness. She watched as he stood up in the chair and begin to make his way toward her. Her breath hitched and she licked her lips nervously.
“I guess I didn’t get the memo that class was canceled” she said with a bite.
“Well that’s shame. I thought I emailed everyone in class but you must have been left off the list. Actually, this works out splendidly since I needed to speak with you anyway.”
The last thing Emma wanted to do was stand in a dark, empty lecture hall with him. He was too close. He was always too close. She could smell him and the scent of leather and something woodsy filled her until she wanted to curl up in his arms and breath him in. It was always like this. The first time she saw him on campus she felt like she’d been punched. The way his dark hair fell over his eyes, the long, confident stride, and the accent had every girl that saw him dropping at his feet. She wouldn’t give him the satisfaction of knowing she was practically salivating every time he was nearby.  
“And what would that be about professor?” she crossed her arms as she spoke, as much to send a DO NOT CROSS signal as it was to keep her hands from betraying her by running them down his body.
“I’ve dropped you from this class” he said turning to gather up his papers. Emma’s jaw fell open.
“You what? Why would you do that? I need this class Mr. Jones” she began to plead.
“Swan, relax. I got you into Hopper’s class. I was assured by your advisor it fit into your schedule and that you had been trying to get in but were denied. I thought you’d be pleased” he said with a lift of his brow and a slight smirk.
“Oh. Uh, thank you. But why?”
As he slung his bag over his shoulder he turned and grinned at her. Emma was sure her heart stopped and restarted as he practically glided over to stand in front of her. His smile made her think of a crocodile ready to devour its prey.
“Because you can’t have a relationship with a student you are teaching. It’s frowned upon apparently”.
“We aren’t in a relationship” she said with more cockiness than the blush creeping up her neck allowed for.
“Not yet love” he whispered and walked out of the room.

hey mom, I'm not in a very good place rn. I'd describe myself as soft butch, and I actually like the way I look rn, no make-up, short hair and all, but everytime I go out I get anxiety because I feel like people are judging me. It stresses me and makes me hate my sexuality sometimes, I know you're busy and your prompts are full but could I please have a small sanvers fic with maybe a teen soft butch in it? I feel like I really need good rep rn... if u dont want just delete this, its okay

She’s in the field and she’s got her game face on – shoulders set, stance relaxed but ready, eyes sharp – and when J Cole’s Hold It Down blasts out of her back pocket, her work partner cocks a grin at you.

“Your kid?”

She grins at the term and answers quickly.

“Adrian, I’m on the job, what up?”

“Can I bring a kid to our dinner tonight? Remember that girl Val I was telling you about? She’s trippin cause she had a rough time in school today – “

“Yeah, course you can, kid.”

“You gotta go.”

Maggie grins at his sensitivity, his perceptiveness. “You could be a detective yourself, Ade. See you both tonight.”

She chews the inside of her cheek – a habit she’s been picking up from her girlfriend – and shoots a quick text off to Alex, telling her to expect one more tonight before pocketing her phone and sighing, squatting to analyze the tire marks leftover by the latest Cadmus lackey getaway car.

She pushes tonight’s dinner – a biweekly thing, dinner with her girlfriend and her college boy (she never tires of reminding him how proud she is that he’s in college) – to the back of her mind until she walks through the door of her apartment several hours later to find in her kitchen Alex, Adrian, and a short kid – must the the Val girl Adrian was talking about – with a dapper, short haircut, make-up free face, collared shirt and khakis, skin darker than hers but lighter than Adrian’s, smile just as bright.

Alex has the look of panicked glee of a pale five year old being caught with her hand in the cookie jar; Adrian’s holding the handle of a smoking frying pan with one hand and pointing at Alex with the other; and the new kid is frozen mid-laugh, eyes wide and nervous at finally meeting the detective she’s heard so much about from Adrian.

Maggie appraises the situation with a single glance and grins.

“Alex tried to cook.”

“I – “

“All good, Danvers, we’ll order in, but I gotta say, I’m still surprised your skills in the lab don’t transfer to the kitchen – “

“Hehe, your skills – “

“That’s enough out of you, young man.”

“Yes, Agent Danvers.”

Maggie laughs and shakes her head at their banter as she drops her gun and jacket on a chair and strides over with her hand out to greet the new kid.

“Maggie Sawyer,” she says, leaving the usual NCPD part out because the girl is looking more nervous by the second.

“Valerie.”

“But you prefer Val?” Maggie asks, and Adrian nods behind Val’s back in case she isn’t brave enough to say yes. She is, and she nods, and Maggie smiles warmly at her.

“Okay, Val, so. What’re you hungry for, aside from whatever my woman charred on the stove?”

“Hey – “

“Is it not true, Danvers?”

Alex scowls playfully and Maggie leans in for a kiss. Adrian squeals and leans into Val. “Told you they were the cutest couple ever. My real life OTP!”

Val smiles, but there’s sadness behind it.

“Bad day, kid?” Alex asks, and gestures her to the couch.

“She likes this girl,” Adrian knocks his shoulder into Val gently, and she shoves him with an embarrassed laugh on her face. Alex ooohs and Maggie squeals, and Val almost cries, because she’s never met grown-ups who were this excited to hear about her crushes on girls before.

“She’s really pretty,” Val confesses in a single breath, collapsing onto the couch with her knees spread wide and heat spreading across her shyly smiling face.

“Okay, tell. Everything. But first, tell me what you want for food.”

“Whatever’s fine. Pizza, maybe.”

Maggie chuckles as she takes out her phone to order. “Always with the pizza in this family.”

Alex kisses her and Adrian squeezes her knee when they catch her family comment, and Val flushes to be so easily included in such a term.

“Nothing, I just… she’s really good at math – “

“A definite turn on – “

“Oh, is that why you like coming to my lowly easy-bake oven lab, Danvers?”

“Ladies! There are children present!”

“I’m not a children, I’m sixteen!”

Children,” Adrian, Alex, and Maggie all chorus, and Val rolls her eyes and continues.

“There’s the math thing, and she’s just really sweet, she always sticks up for the kids who get picked on, and she’s got these gorgeous curls and she’s – “

“Super duper femmey, and totally into soft little butches like yourself,” Adrian says and pokes her in the belly gently. She swats at his hand and shrugs defeatedly.

“I dunno. I mean, I’m not just into femmes… but she is super femmey… but maybe she wants someone harder than me? Or like, femmier than me? Like, less gay, maybe, or more gay, or – ”

“So, basically, you’re creating a girl who’s anything but you in your mind, right?” Maggie grins with a tilted head, and Val sighs.

“I guess.”

Maggie squints at her and exhales sharply and wets her lips and speaks.

“You know before I met Danvers over here, it was… I dated. A lot.”

“Don’t worry Alex. You won,” Adrian whispers, and Alex slaps him five softly without taking her eyes off Maggie.

“I dated, but it was… it was women who didn’t get me, you know? They saw leather jackets and a cop badge and a bike and darker skin than theirs – god, too many white girls, sorry babe, but that’s a story for another day – so they expected me to be a certain type of way, expected me to be… well, more butch, you know? Like, all the time. They were interested in the role I could play – and I can play it, I can be it, and I like it, I love doting on women – “

Val smiles and nods and Alex blushes and Adrian snickers.

“But that’s not all I am, you know?” She shrugs. “Sometimes I like a little lace under the leather. And we’ve got different styles, you and me.” She gestures to Val’s hair cut, her looser clothes, with a grin. “And I love it. Your style. It’s absolutely fantastic. And you look really at home in it. And that’s the thing. You? How you feel, how you are? That’s the only thing that matters. So if she likes you, she’s gotta like your soft butchliness. And who wouldn’t, I mean look at you, you’re perfect.”

Val scoffs and Alex beams at Maggie and Adrian squeezes Val’s knee.

The doorbell rings and Adrian squeals. “Pizza!”

Maggie glances at Alex, and Alex nods with a grin before getting up to get the door.

“Your girl like pizza?” Maggie asks, and Val nods.

“I saved her the last slice last week at the school paper’s party when she was late from class. She was really happy.”

Maggie slaps her own thigh in excitement. “Damn girl, see, you got game! Wanna invite her over? We can watch crappy Netflix movies, and the three of us will check out if she checks you out and it’ll be awesome.”

Val smiles at the thought and pulls her phone out of her back pocket.

“Do you guys do this for all of us? Open up your home like this?”

Alex beams over the small stack of pizza boxes when Maggie looks up at her, and Adrian grins widely, proudly, gratefully, at them both as he cracks open a box and digs in immediately.

“Only to the cool kids,” Maggie teases, and Val nods, and types out a text to her crush, because she’s nervous but she’s perfect just like she is, and what’s there not to like, right, Maggie said so, and also, pizza.

Pizza with new family.

Even if her crush declines to come over, she’s pretty sure it’s going to be a good night.

Connor kenway relationship headcanons? I love your blog❤️

Ahhhhh, thank you!!

Alright so I have a lot of feelings about this man
—He will literally just engulf you in his arms if you ever fall asleep with/near him. You can not escape.
—The heat he emits is unreal. Like, in winter you don’t need a blanket no matter how cold it is, it is incredible. Summer is less enjoyable though.
—If anyone ever-ever-makes you noticeably upset or uncomfortable, all it takes is a look and you’ll probably never see them again.
—He’ll call you so many pet names in his native language, but probably keeps most of the meanings to himself (especially if you’re tiny)
—This man is so weak for your puppy eyes. Like, even if they’re not very convincing, he caves so easily.
—If you ever get sick, he will coddle you to the point that it’s almost infuriating.
—Do not doubt the power of his own puppy eyes, because if you do it’s already too late, you are doomed.
—Its nearly impossible to argue with him, because he’s practically the perfect boyfriend (totally husband material). The only thing that would probably cause an argument would be worrying for each others’ safety.
—DO. NOT. CRY. He is so confused, but he tries to be so helpful. Most of the time it works, but he gets so upset when he sees you cry.
—He’s so good with kids and animals and it’s the most heartwarming thing.
—I totally headcanon he brings stray animals home all the time.
—Your family loves him almost instantly and you’re really surprised, because how?
—Like, you walk into your family’s home expecting glares from your father/mother/siblings/whoever, but they practically immediately warm up to him.
—He’s so sweet and he loves you so much, he would do anything for you.

Shy Sid->Mom Sid to the rookies because they know Capt Geno will fucking murder them if they forgot basic shit and Sid's really good at smuggling stuff to them. Rookies figure out he gives amazing romantic advice(be nice. Listen. It's basic but they need it). When Geno finds out they've been bugging Sid he growls that they better show Sid they're thankful so they start taking Sid for lunch/finding books he likes/promising time at the Rec center with the kids. Their friendship sneaks up on Sid

Sidney’s romantic advice is literally lowkey what he and Geno does

Geno made him cheesecake when Sidney felt too down to drag him out of his work = “Maybe you should bring her something she likes? Like her favorite dessert. She sounds like she has a lot on her plate right now.”

Geno leaves Sidney with a blanket and hot tea when Sidney needs his alone time to cool down = “Maybe she needs some space. Like send a message to make sure she’s okay. I know that’s what I’d like.”

and so on. but the rookies only get these advice when they sit with sidney for a minimum of 30 minutes; they have also discovered how quiet Thoughtful Sidney can be

Daddy Day [a E2!Barry Allen imagine]

Request: Could you please do a e2 Barry Daddy where he brings the 3 boys to work with him and luca pretends not to be interested but he ends up thinking its awesome and when he sees Barry struggling between work and watching those three (mainly Nico cause a tiny human) he holds Nico and yeah :)

a/n: #barryandhisboys #godbless #pleasetalktome i had such a bad day and i just wanna cry


My kids list is here, look, request, yeah :)


“Sweetie, I’ve got everything under control. Jace is-” Barry spins on the heel of his brown dress shoe, sighing. The fifteen year old gawks at the large CCPD plaque, blue striped hoodie hanging off both shoulders, exposing his gray shirt. “Right here. Right in front of me.” he breathes into the phone, repositioning Nico on his hip.

Meanwhile, you watch your two girls play with their friends. Crossing your legs, you fix your black blazer, smiling when the cake appears. “Okay, sexy. Give Nico kisses from mommy. I love you.” you whisper, waiting for your husband to say it back before hanging up.

His cream sweater wrinkles as he slips his phone in his back pocket. Readjusting Nico on his hip, he kisses his forehead before peering back. “Jace! Luke! Let’s go- Hey, you little monkey, those aren’t for you!” Barry laughs, prying his thin glasses out of the babbling toddler’s grip.

Jace follows his dad, walking backwards, running his fingers through his chestnut hair. “Woah, dad, this place is huge! How come I had to wait fifteen years for you to bring me but Nico’s barely even two and you’re all… ‘I’m bringing him to work, blah, blah, blah’.” he frowns, bumping into Barry by accident. He cringes, spinning around; gray Vans squeaking on the waxed floor.

“It’s because Nico’s his favorite.” Luca grumbles next to Jace, stomping up the staircase, fixing his gold letterman jacket.

When the dad comes to the door to his lab, he swirls around, thick brown eyebrows furrowed under his glasses. “That is not true, Luca Allen. I love you all equally.” Barry argues, ignoring the toddler undoing his yellow bow tie. “Please just…do me a favor? Get in the room so I can get some work done?” he pleads, pointing into the lab. His green eyes watch the two older boys enter, following suit.

A stack of papers sit on the metal desk and Barry sighs, stalking towards it. As the tall brunette shifts through different files, Nico whines, hazel eyes shining with watery tears. Jace wonders around the lab, picking up random things and inspecting them, like a true detective. “Daddeeee!” Nico cries, lower lip quivering at the lack of attention.

Huffing, Barry repositions him on his hip; one palm on the papers. “Baby, I know, I know. Give daddy just a second to rea-” There’s a loud crash and he whips his head around, seeing Jace standing over a pool of red liquid, looking guilty. Sighing, he squeezes his eyes shut, bouncing the toddler. “Jace… just go sit down. Please. I’ll take care of it.” he mutters.

Nico cries again, pulling on his daddy’s sweater. “Daaaddddeee!”

Blinking wildly, Barry rubs his eyes before picking up the papers, puckering his lips to make noises. Bringing his pointer finger to the file, he reads it over, body bending due to the weight of Nico. “Dad, I’ll take him.” Luca says softly, outstretching his arms. Barry smiles, cheeks wrinkling.  

“You’re gonna go with Lukey while daddy works. Okay? Okay?” he mumbles, handing Nico to his eldest son. Luca scowls at the nickname and Jace laughs from his seat. “And you,” he points to fifteen year old, “Aren’t going to touch anything else, understood?” Barry raises an eyebrow.

Jace slumps in his seat, nodding his head. The dad rolls his mossy green eyes, pressing his palms to the desk. Adjusting his little brother on his hip, Luca runs a hand through his blond locks, strutting towards Jace. “Nico’s totally his favorite. He just won’t admit it.” he whispers, smirking.

The lion-switching theory from a marketing POV?

I caught up with an old college friend who’s been working on media marketing for a couple of years last weekend, and while we were talking the topic of VLD and the lion/paladin-swap theory that’s been going around came up and I explained to him the idea that fans are theorizing about Keith taking over Black, Lance Red, and Allura Blue. (He was aware of the old Voltron series, even the 2011 one, but he was new to VLD.) And he brought up something interesting that I thought I could share. (I thought it was quite a different view from how the lion-swap theory’s been viewed, since it goes down a more “practical” vein.) (also a disclaimer: I have little to no marketing background so there may be things I’m overlooking or misinterpreting; feel free to add, contest, or point out.)

The thing is, VLD’s marketing (product marketing, specially) is heavy (if not centered) on its being a kids show, meaning toys. And we’ve seen this in the Playmates line and now the Burger King partnership. And he told me that one important thing about marketing something like this, especially to a market of children, is “consistent association”—making sure certain aspects of a franchise are easily identifiable for kids who could want specific toys because they favor a specific character. One example he gave is the logos and color schemes for the Justice League cartoon (or even the Justice League in general), which you can use as minimally as possible on merch (the Batman logo on a black bg for example) but will be easily and readily identifiable enough by children. (Other examples could be the color schemes and gem appearances in SU or character color schemes in Adventure Time—the more consistent a series’ character designs are, the easier it is to make distinctive merchandise.)

(more of the stuff under the cut so I don’t clog people’s stuff)

tail:thicker then others and is a soft grey ending in light blue. a good mix of flowy and sleek his hip fins are more flowy then his tail tip fin. wears a lot of jewelry like rings on his tail and other body parts.
ears: he has small ear fins with piercings in the webbing
when it comes to humans: he doesn’t get all the hype. he doesn’t intentionally come in contact with them but doesn’t mind them when he does.
his voice: has the to have others see the future, usually tends to be something bad they need to fix or change to not get that outcome.
fault/weakness: inspects every ‘human’ object that comes his way before letting others from his ‘school’ mess with it, for safety reasons, he has some ‘battle’ wounds from doing this.
other: loves making others happy so much so he wont say no to those in his ‘school’ when asked to do something. loves praise and being with others. visits the others dispite things that could effect him negatively. hobi’s plants make his scales get all yucky with algae for some reason he thinks he is allergic and yoongi’s cave is to darn cold but he goes anyway.

tail: blue no purple no both? it depends on the light!
his tail would be sleek not to much extra though he would have to hip fins
his main tail fin would be quite large.
ears: he has larger ear fins with neck gills
when it comes to humans: oh they know he exists he is the perfect ‘tipical mermaid’ shape and his curiosity gets him in trouble he loves children as jin can’t use his voice to erase their memories of him. he is a legend to adults but a fact to kids. its unknown to the towns people why when one grows up they forget about him.
his voice: he has the textbook siren voice, makes others come to him and fall in love or become infatuated, those that hear his voice can do him no wrong.
faut/weakness: his voice does not work on those already in love. loves human children a little to much and loves when they come see him at the waters edge and bring him gifts. jin once caught him swimming with children. once saved a child from a ship wreck by giving them the gift of underwater breathing (a merfolk can give the gift of under water breathing by breathing into a being through the mouth) it saved the little girls life and to this day she is the only grown up who still knows he exists as jin lets her.
other: likes to decorate his tail and other areas with things he ‘borrows’ from his ‘school’ companions. loves making things for others. always asking questions and thinks of ways to surprise everyone and get them together. treasure seeker, first at a sunken ship, doesn’t mind saving humans. doesn’t understand how human things work and uses them for other purposes.

kookie-

tail: deep red with black and gold scales throughout. his tail is strong and he can swim for days at top speed. sleek for speed without extra fins though he has one on his back. his tail tip fin is quite short at first but ends up being white large when he becomes of age. had no gold in his tail until he became of age.
ears: he has small pointed human ears and neck gills that go all the way down each side of his neck, again before he became of age he didn’t have big gills like he does now. 
when it comes to humans: admires them for the things he doesn’t have but doesn’t go out of his way to see them. will NOT talk to humans and usually ends up leaving (swimming away) if spotted.
his voice: has the ability to make others follow his orders, was believed to not have a special ability until he became of age. unlike other mer-folk his ability works on other mer-folk and other mythical creatures.
fault/weakness: he sometimes can’t control his ability when he is emotional, though he isn’t emotional others can make him that way. he is sensitive to others emotions.
other: for some reason he likes wearing human clothes (the right way) and wears shirts and collects human clothes. always hungry but can’t cook. gets away with a lot of stuff others wouldn’t be able to. works them innocent eyes to get out of stuff. always watches his hyungs, admires them and helps them while learning himself.

things that SX blinds tend to do to piss SX users off: 

  • Being genuinely skeptical of intimate one-on-one connections. And having trouble maintaining one. they tend to emphasize that family is the only one you can trust and mistaken emotional intimacy with others as whoever you literally physically occupy a space with on a daily basis – hence the doubt on how online friendships could possibly last for a long time. people who find long distance relationships difficult to maintain tend to be sp/so. 

  • Telling you what to do socially. they often feel the need to school you and remind not to hurt people’s feelings at every turn and sometimes visibly clam up when the group discussion turns into anything mildly controversial (politics, enjoying a good debate, beliefs), though this is mostly for non-8 FE types. being sx blind, they should not be telling you how to behave because being socially graceful has little to do with having a social variant.

  • Panicking. got a cut? panic. left something at home? panic and talk about it. feel uncomfortable? say it outloud. enneagram type 6? even more panicking; this offsets SX/SPs who tend to be self contained and would relate to the very essence of being “self controlled” – working against the external atmosphere. being injured, approached by strangers, or even being attacked on the spot does not phase me personally. other SXs do not easily experience being unsettled on the spot either. 

  • Immediately focusing on social benefits. when you mention having a hobby or a new venture, you will often hear something like “you’ll be so popular! You’ll have so much money, this is great, you’ll be famous, I’m happy for you!” which basically comes across as shallow and distills people’s interests as something that should be impressive to others. but if you’re truly interested in the subject, the appropriate question is to ask “oh you have this hobby! how do you make X? what is the process you go to achieve Y?” in other words, ask about the process rather than consider its social implications. SXs know that good work get attention but hold their concept of power in the mastery of the activity itself. otherwise the discussion you get from the SX person will be short.

  • Not establishing personal boundaries. for example, they tend to be particular about maintaining properness, are uncomfortable with dirty jokes and sex discussions but won’t hold back if they have a hilarious story about you. they have a tendency to not recognize what’s personal and not to share and end up bringing shit up as a form of “social bonding”. 

    Example: “Remember when OP jerked off as a little kid?! Hahaha hilarious!“ or “oh my god! Let’s talk about all what OP does at home? like all their shitty bathroom habits?” to strangers. While I wouldn’t be easily embarrassed saying all that shit to strangers as a form of entertainment is crude and makes me lose respect for your ability to read the individual. (A group visibly laughing out of politeness because it’s expected doesn’t mean they want to hear more) SX blinds tend to get offended when the rest of the group talks about their personal secrets however. One way to counter this habit: what are the things you wouldn’t normally say of yourself in public? Do others need to know this information? – is a good way of establishing boundary

AKA brief list of reasons why SX blinds are incompatible with SXs, particularly SX/SP, unless both are highly aware of their own enneatypes and blindspots and know how to relate to each other.

anonymous asked:

YOI kinda lines up sports anime tropes to shoot em down, especially in the first few episodes. Yuuko's introduction was one: it's set up so that we expect her to be Yuuri's childhood crush, but then we learn later on that she's married with three kids and not only is he not sad/jealous about her marriage, he doesn't even bring her up when he's asked about his romantic past--they were really just friends all along. 1/2

2/2 Another is that sports protags are almost always talented amateurs who start at the bottom and work their way up to the top over the course of the story. Yuuri starts off as a professional, who’s been in competition for years, who was good enough to make it to the biggest competitions. Regular sports protagonists gain confidence as they learn more about the sport, while Yuuri just has a huge case of impostor syndrome to work through.

Thanks for that addition! I didn’t watch sports anime before yoi so it wasn’t until I joined fandom when I understood how revolutionary it is but even then I was impressed with the way Yuuko was introduced. In western media, you too have that trope of a childhood crush/friend that turns out to be a beauty and ends up as a plot device rather than a real character while Yuuko is never objectified or sexualized. It applies to all the woman in yoi and it’s definitely worth noticing.

And you’re right with that, of course, I believe that Yuuri is in whole a very original main character. I think that while Yurio is taken from a specific tradition of protagonists (again, I’m not a specialist in anime but Kubo-sensei told in an interview that he was the first character she had in mind because she knew the specific type of character she wanted to use), Yuuri seems to be a wonderful character because he’s something new. Like, his age, his place in the sport, his experience, his anxiety, his sexuality, all of this makes his characters so much interesting and relatable and it also means the classic scheme won’t work for him. But again, this is just one of so many things yoi does good and differently. I could talk for hours about why characters are so well-written here but I think you said the most important thing. Thanks for your message!

whatdoyewant  asked:

Tell me everything about your witch au immediately please

Okay Well first thing first type of Magic

Geoff - Time and Fire witch. which Ill  explain more in a moment 

Jack- White witch. She can’t use her magic to harm people but she is able to use it to help the crew which is fine with her its not like weapons don’t exist

Ryan - Empath witch. He can put an immense amount of fear into a person without doing anything

Michael - Storm witch

Gavin - Blood Magic. Which he hates and makes him gag when he uses it

Jeremy - Necromancer. Though he can only bring some back for a short amount of time and its extremely draining

Trevor - SPACE WITCH

Lindsay - Eclectic witch

Steffie - Divination witch

“Okay Time witch stuff - Okay but a time witch is rare, because they try not to reproduce due to the fear of the kid turning out bad and going back in time to mess with history. Not much is known on time magic or how it works, some believe that time witches are decedents of a god and those people are correct. Time witches are demigods. Yes they can die like everybody else, but they also all have a way to regenerate 

God I dont remember what the rest of that explanation was. Whatever my point is time witches have some god magic which allows them a way to be able to regenerate Because Geoff is also part fire witch it is why if burned he regenerates It is also why a phoenix is his familiar   

Well, it seems like time witches would have a secondary magic, but it would be a higher power concentration. So a water + time witch could be thrown in a body of water and regenerate, a garden + time witch could be buried in a forest and regenerate, etcetera etcetera Which would require time witches to have elemental magic, and having a, say, time alchemist or time necromancer would be unheard of, especially since time witches are so rare”

—————————–

Familiars 

Geoff - Phoenix named fireball after the whiskey 

Jack -non

Ryan - 

Michael - non. Though my boyfriend and I have joked about it being a sentient McRib

Jeremy - Scooter 

Gavin - Smee

Lindsay - black cat

Trevor - Dog with galaxy colored fur OR garden snake named Karma

Steffie - unsure


I had an idea for a fic veeeeeeeery loosely based off The Magicians

“Right okay so part of the show The Magicians is that they’ve tried to kill this monster about 34 times, each time they fail this woman set back time and changes one thing in hopes it would allow them to win but she gets killed so this is their last shot. So imagine something like that with Witch au FAHC. They keep trying to take down this crew that wants them all dead and every time they fail Geoff sets time back enough and changes one thing in hopes that it will change the outcome, and nobody but Geoff, and Jack because he gives her a potion that lets her remember, knows that time was set back, but this time Geoff dies so this is the crew’s last shot. Most likely reason they dont bring geoff back is no one outside the crew knows he’s a time witch and thinks he’s just a fire witch and by bringing him back will put Jeremy in danger because there are rumors he’s a necromancer and something like that will only make people certain those rumors are true”

8.18: Dean pushes Sam to talk about how he’s feeling physically due to the trials, but Sam turns it right around on him and makes it about Dean’s feelings…

SAM: Yeah. Um, Cas dinged you up pretty good.
DEAN: And?
SAM: And I just wanted to make sure you’re okay.
DEAN: What like my feelings?
SAM: If that’s what you want to talk about, sure.
DEAN: Okay. I’ll tell you what. Why don’t I go get some, uh, herbal tea.
SAM: Okay.
DEAN: And you can find some cowboy junkies on the dial.

Like Dean recognized the description of Claire in 12.16 when Sam didn’t, Dean recognized Krissy Chambers on the surveillance footage when Sam didn’t…

KRISSY: You’re never too young to kill monsters, especially the ones that kill your family.

Thing is, the “monster” that killed her father is actually the human hunter who took her and her friends in to train them to be the next generation of hunters in the style of his choosing. Victor partnered with a vampire who turned innocent people, then set them out as easy “training targets” for the kids who were now dependent on him. LIED to them, telling the kids that these were the vampires who killed their families so they could get their “revenge” and their Hunter Origin Story. The experience bonds the three young hunters together, but it was all based on a lie until Sam and Dean remind her that hunting’s not all about killing and revenge.

Sam and Dean see the combination of hunting and normal family life that Victor is providing the kids. Dean objects at first, arguing that kids should be protected from hunting… But Victor wants the next generation of hunters to be “better than them.” He uses Martin and Garth as examples of hunters he’s trying to improve upon.

VICTOR: Better than us. Oh, come on, guys. I know your friends. I mean, Martin was insane. And somebody obviously dropped Garth on his head when he was a baby. And I know you two loved that Bobby guy, but he was a barely functional alcoholic.
DEAN: Watch it.
VICTOR: No disrespect meant, but Josephine is an all-state athlete and National Merit scholar. Aiden is so fast he could pick your pocket before you could even blink. And Krissy, oh she’s just a natural-born leader and hunter.
DEAN: So what?
VICTOR: So these kids are the cream of the crop. They are the Beatles. They are the dream team. And once they get their revenge……they’ll be better hunters than any of us ever dreamed of.

On the surface, it sounds like a far less horrifying version of Kendricks…

Victor believes a “balanced approach” is the way to get there.

DEAN: Kids aren’t supposed to hunt, Sam.
SAM: We did.
DEAN: Yeah, and look what that did for us.
SAM: Well, maybe they’re doing it right. Maybe they can hunt and have a real life.

But Dean still doesn’t believe it can work for anybody. And he’s still suspicious of the inconsistencies he saw in the vampire hunt where they’d found Krissy, so he starts investigating while Sam stays with Victor and the kids.

VICTOR: But you know what I realized, Sam, is that these kids, they don’t have to live it the way we have. You know, crappy hotel rooms, always moving, no family, no life. It’s not the only way.

(taking a moment to talk about Jimmy, the war hero that everyone in town knew, who was reduced to a crying mess repeating I’M SORRY to the vampire victim, who thought he just seemed scared)

Sam didn’t want to believe that Victor was lying about having found the vamp that killed Krissy’s father, and just assumed he was mistaken, so Sam brings Victor along to investigate the mysterious blue van, and that’s when Victor and the vampire he’s been working with all along turn on Sam. MISPLACED TRUST, SAMMY.

Meanwhile Dean finds where the vampire’s been stashing its bait victims after they’ve been turned, and realizes that the girl is freshly turned and has never fed before, and therefore couldn’t possibly have been the vampire who killed Krissy’s father.

Dean earns Krissy’s trust, and proves to all three kids that they don’t know everything.

KRISSY: So, let’s say this isn’t the vamp who killed my dad. She’s still a monster and deserves to die.
DEAN: Not if we can save her.
AIDEN: What?
DEAN: She hasn’t fed yet. We can reverse this if we find her maker and get his blood.
AIDEN: And why should we care about her?
DEAN: Like I said, hunting isn’t always about killing.
ADIEN: Oh, please. Preach to some other choir. We’re not buying it.
DEAN: You want to kill an innocent girl?!
KRISSY: I want the blood sucker who killed my dad to pay.
DEAN: And we’re gonna find out who that is. But let’s not be so bloodthirsty that just anyone will do.
JOSEPHINE: But Victor says it’s her.
DEAN: And I say it ain’t! So we’re gonna pack her to go, and we’re gonna ask Victor ourselves. Okay?

Sometimes the REAL monster is just a human…

VICTOR: We are at war –a war that we are losing. That Leviathan fiasco was a wake-up call. We have to do what we can to survive. But I wouldn’t expect you to understand. You’re not a father. You don’t know what it’s like to hear the cries of your children dying.But now I have a second chance to make it all right, to create the next generation of hunters – stronger, faster, smarter.

Sounds EXACTLY like the BMoL in s12, no?

VICTOR: You have to understand. I saw a way to make the future better. But to get there, I had to do something hard.

Sorta like what Mary believes she’s doing working with the MoL?

KRISSY: If we want revenge for our families’ deaths, he gives it to us!
DEAN: We don’t kill people. You don’t kill people.
KRISSY: He’s not a person. He’s a monster.

She points the gun at Victor and fires, but the bullets are in her pocket. And she delivers his sentence:

AIDEN: So, we’re just gonna let him live?
KRISSY: Yeah. All alone, with himself. No family. No friends. Ask me, that’s not much of anything.

Meanwhile they get to save the life of an innocent girl, and Krissy proves she’s a better hunter than Victor ever was. At least, far more “balanced.”

KRISSY: Look, I hate how we were put together, but…I can’t deny that it feels right. And why should I let Victor ruin that, too?
DEAN: So, what you’re saying is that you like that boy over there and you want to stay?
KRISSY: What? Aiden? No. I mean… He’s like my brother. It’s nothing like that.
DEAN: Well, you’re all still minors.
KRISSY: Not for long. Josephine will be 18 in a few months. And we all have a life and each other here.
DEAN: And hunting?
KRISSY: We won’t go looking for it. But if any monsters show up around here, they better look out. 
DEAN: Okay. Good.
KRISSY: Really? I thought I was gonna have to fight you way more on that.
DEAN: Well, you’re right. You’re not a kid anymore. You can make your own decisions.

(reverberations of Mary’s talks with Dean in s12… but with Mary in Dean’s role, and Dean in Krissy’s here… But Mary’s got her own issues that she’s also dealing with, and it’s taken a lot longer for her to reach “acceptance.”)
