So I saw a post about how James Potter would never grow old and had an overwhelming feeling of “FIGHT ME”, and then I realized that the fandom never talks about what it would be like if he grew old, they just say they’re sad he didn’t…so here are elderly James Potter headcanons.

  • He’s super, super vivacious. It’s like he never ages except he clearly does because hair is gray and he has a cane and has some back problems. But he never loses his zest for life.
  • He goes to equality protests with the rest of the Marauders (which DOES include Lily) all the time, and tells the leaders that “he’ll hit anyone with a cane”.
  • Which he would, because he has
  • He fantasized about getting a sword installed in the cane. He once spent twenty minutes looking up places to do that, only to have Lily confront him later with a “please get me a sword, too”
  • So he did, and sometimes they do battles in the front yard until something happens to someone’s back.
  • James is that old guy that goes to quidditch matches all the time. The Chudley Cannons are in town? Whup, let’s go. He has this thing where he screams at the teams and waves his cane and the players never mind because it’s just like “it’s that Potter fellow again”
  • Whenever he sees teams, he’ll make them sign two things: his apparel for them and a shirt that he will intentionally buy the week before and keep the receipt so he can prove he saw them recently. 
  • He and Sirius have a thing where they’re in contest for “coolest grandparents”, and he wants to prove that he really is the coolest by having a shirt he bought “last week, my clone, see?
  • He always calls James his clone because the two of them find it hilarious, and then he asks James about the Marauders and James will tell him stories
  • He has inside jokes with all his grandkids.
  • Him and Lily Luna have a contest to see who can unintentionally wreck the Potters’ front yard the most because they both kill every growing thing (but they try!), so whenever he greets her, he says, “wreck any yards recently?”
  • Albus Severus is almost done memorizing the key sections of Hogwarts: A History so James and Albus have battles with memorized sections of Hogwarts: A History against Quidditch Through the Ages. They always have some joking talk about it when Albus arrives so they can both get their game up.
  • They like to do weird accents as they do them, as well.
  • Harry records all of these and sends them to Hermione and Ron because “hey look, Hermione, someone’s actually reading Hogwarts: A History
  • James’ messy hair never balds, it only goes gray. 
  • Although he HAS suggested to Lily that he follow in his father’s footsteps an make a magical hair dye: one for Lily and him to share, because she’s graying too. It’s very visible since she almost never puts her hair up.
  • She laughs and says she’d rather him share with Sirius.
  • The people at the Muggle grocery store love him, because he sits there and tells all his wizarding stories for hours and no one can tell if he’s serious or not, but he’s such a good storyteller that it doesn’t matter.
  • Whenever Harry and his kids come over he tries to help Lily bake something. It always turns out to be a disaster, but it always means he has a new story to tell them.
  • He gives the grandkids gifts every time they visit. The real question is who will get a prank gift and who gets a real gift. 
  • He does a similar thing with candy dishes by filling all of them with Bertie Botts. 
  • He still rides out on his broom whenever he can.
  • He has an old leather recliner. Because yes, of course he does.
  • The Marauders meet up every week. They talk and they do projects and basically are an entourage at this point.
  • Remus decided to grow a beard, which ends up looking like a few silly little wisps on his chin that bother all of them. Peter one day comments about how easy it would be to get rid of it in his sleep and so Sirius and James create a plan to hack it off
  • (a plan that never works, because Lily tells him the next day and Remus decides to cut it off before Sirius and James can)
  • James and Lily talk every single night and spend time together every single day. They never, ever run out of things to talk about.
  • They have a chore rotation.
  • Every night, before they go to sleep, he makes tea for Lily and himself (she likes chamomile with honey, his favorite changes every week). It’s the one thing he can cook besides Indian food, they food he grew up with, without entirely messing it up.
  • He goes to sleep at nine thirty so he can get sleep and have a great day tomorrow, too, because he learned that you CAN be too tired to enjoy life, and he doesn’t want to waste a minute of it.
  • He focuses a lot on experiences and friendships and relationships now, and he feels so lucky to be surrounded by so many amazing people that he loves, especially after the war.
  • He went to treatment for PTSD after it was over. Harry had to, too, but there are nights when Harry wakes up screaming and James and Lily are there to comfort him and calm him down because they know what it’s like and they love him more than anything else in the world.
  • James Potter lives a beautiful life as an older man and no one can tell me otherwise.

ALRIGHT PEOPLE

SO

I rewatched Winter Soldier last night (because literally what else am I supposed to do the night before I see Civil War)

And it was still great. Obviously. But you know what the best scene is?

None of the awesome action scenes. None of the Stucky fanfic fuel. None of the scenes with Falcon (somehow? Falcon’s so freaking awesome, I can’t believe I just said that he’s not the best part of a thing he’s in).

No.

The best scene is this one:

Remember this? Basically, Cap just told everyone over the intercom about Hydra infiltrating Shield, and how, if you’re not Hydra, trust no one, and fight back if you can. 

In the speech, Cap acknowledges that “If I stand alone” (that is, if no one wants to step up, because, fun fact, guns are really scary), then so be it.

And then Hydra’s resident Mr. McMuscle Man Brock Rumlow up there walks up to this lowly Launch Technician (Cameron Klein is his name, played by Aaron Himelstein) and orders him to launch Project Insight (aka Hydra’s evil plans).

Five minutes ago, Cameron had one job, and it was to press a few keys and launch this thing. Sure, he’d heard about Cap becoming a fugitive, and that was weird (and sounded kinda sketchy), but hey, he works for the good guys, right?

But now the game has changed. Launching this thing is a bad idea. 

Cameron pauses as Rumlow demands him to start it up. And Cameron refuses.

Rumlow pulls out a gun and points it straight at Cameron’s head. And Cameron panics; heck, he’s practically holding back tears already. But he still says no. “Captain’s orders,” he explains.

You know why this is the best scene in the movie? Because Cameron reminds me of someone. Someone that people watching the movie are already pretty familiar with.

Cameron is the guy who may not have the muscle or the skills to be a soldier or a spy, but he wanted to help make the world a better place, so he did what he could. He got a job at Shield, he followed the orders of people he thought he could trust, and when he realized the truth, he stood his ground and did the right thing. He hasn’t gone through any training, he has no powers or skills or suits of armor. He didn’t even know Sharon Carter was armed and would be able to get him out of harm’s way. He thought he was about to die. But he wasn’t going to stand by and let evil triumph.

And that’s despite the fact that Cap had EXPLICITLY given him permission to do so. That’s what he meant by “If I stand alone.” Cap was saying that if there’s a gun pointed to your head, it’s not cowardly to give up. That’s okay. It doesn’t make you a bad person. If a grenade gets tossed your way, you’re allowed to run away.

But Cameron chose to jump on top of the grenade instead.

I’ve heard people say “Steve Rogers is a hero with or without the serum,” and other people say that’s kind of a cheesy thing to say, but if you want proof of that statement, Cameron is it. In a 90-second or so scene, this movie perfectly emulated what it means to be a hero even if you have a desk job. Even if you don’t look like you take steroids. Even if nothing eventful has ever happened to you until one moment when everything in your life changes, YOU CAN STILL BE A HERO.

I don’t care if that sounds cheesy or hokey. This scene is incredible. Cameron Klein is incredible - so incredible, in fact, that he got a cameo in Age of Ultron on Fury’s Helicarrier.

Yeah, someone (I’m guessing Sharon) was so freaking impressed at his bravery that they recommended him to serve on Fury’s staff (and, after Winter Soldier, the amount of people Fury trusted could probably be counted on one hand). And he’s in charge of the evacuation - which was LITERALLY THE REASON Fury shows up at all. Not military backup, not surveillance. Evacuation of civilians. And Fury gave Cameron that responsibility.

Because that  guy up there may be the face of a nerd, or a gofer, or a desk clerk.

But it’s also the face of a person who won’t back down. Even when his world is being turned upside down, even when his life is on the line, this is the face of a man who will always do the right thing.

This is the face of a hero.

Now, Marvel’s Damage Control is an upcoming TV show about the normal folks. The ones without powers who always seem to be in the background but may have a lot more depth than they let on.

And I’m gonna try not to be too upset if I don’t see this guy’s name in the cast list, but man I’m hoping I do, because Cameron Klein is a hero.

mediumsoft  asked:

Do you know why Sangwoo pats Jieun on the head in chapter 16? Maybe to calm her down or something but that seems like a weird way to calm someone down. Also are there any other things that are in ks that would go over a non-koreans head? Thanks!

I think Sangwoo mainly knows how to flirt/be friendly with people through low-key bullying or condescension. I don’t think he likes being around other people, except for Bum, and every kind thing he says is forced through the gritted teeth of disdain. So a lot of the things he does to “joke” are really passive agressive swipes. 

How to be charming, by Oh Sangwoo. 

As for things relating specifically to Korean culture…hmm…I already mentioned that “hiking dates” like the one Sangwoo says they’re going on are extremely common, right? And the hotel they’re staying at and the owner are quite normal. I feel like some of this stuff might seem weird or surreal to Westerners, but it’s all quite mundane. Except for the buried bodies. 

I went to tons of these places. You walk up the mountain, and then go back down the mountain, and then go back to the hotel, and then everybody gets blotto until they pass out. And they play awful, awful drinking games. I hated these more than almost every other aspect of Korean culture. No, I will not play your stupid game where you guess who in the room has worn handcuffs before, or gone out without underwear, or whatever, and everyone who guesses wrong has to take a drink. If I want to drink, I will pick up a drink, put it near my face, and then drink it. 

Um, OK, I guess I went off on a tangent there. 

I guess there’s this thing with the apple on Jieun’s grave.

I mentioned before that offerings of food, especially fruit, are common at funerals, death anniversaries, and certain holidays. 

Of course, you never, never take a bite out of an offering. That would be extremely disrespectful. So I think this is Sangwoo’s way of paying his “last respects” to Jieun, while at the same time giving her one final “fuck you.” 

We Need To Talk About Kieran

(with major spoilers from Lord of Shadows, read with caution)

Well, first of all this is a masterpost, so I don’t know if anyone will read it till the end, but anyway. Second, English isn’t my first language so I apologize in advantage for any errors.

This isn’t about Kierark (though it is mentioned), but mostly about Kieran himself, since there’s so much hate toward him recently. (Mostly because people ship Marktina I guess and hating on him is the easiest way if that makes any sense.)

Anyway, let’s go: To start, Kieran is a faerie. He obviously ain’t human. This way, judging him as a human simply ain’t fair. Things are different with faeries so keep that on mind.

Kieran grew up in the Unseelie court, being son of the Unseelie king, who is – as everyone must know – a huge douchebag. He’s also one of the most rejected sons of the King, according to the Flower Book. In Lord of Shadows Erec, one of his brothers, says that he used to be a really gentle and caring kid, and that because of that he ain’t “court material”, reason why he was tortured by his older brothers almost his entirely life. As a result, he has a bunch of scars, and real trust issues. He was never loved, therefore never learn how to love.

He also having grown up on the court, obviously never got to know Shadowhunters, only having his father’s opinion as a reference. So he probably learned since always that Shadowhunters are awful, untrustworthy, and cruel. He has absolutely no reason to doubt these statements. He obviously believed them.

Then later he was betrayed by his own family (big surprise!) and sent to the Wild Hunt for “political reasons”. A place where he was mocked for being a prince, among other things. He basically was physically and psychologically tortured pretty much everywhere he goes. And then he got to know Mark, and even though he was part Shadowhunter, they became close, and Kieran fell in love with him.

Now, the other Hunters are trying to make Mark lose his mind, forget his house and his past life. They broke his stele, they try to make him say he wasn’t a Shadowhunter. They try to break him. Probably the only reason why they didn’t succeed was Kieran. He protected Mark using his prince status, and not only this but he accepted Mark as he was. He let him say he was a Shadowhunter when he most need to. He help him remember that, he help him keep this part of himself alive. He was the only one on the Hunt who didn’t mind that and didn’t try to make Mark forget that.

Now, on Mark’s pov we get to see him saying that kisses and love promises where a good way to forget the pain. So he obviously did a lot of love promises to Kieran, where he later also says that this kind of promise was the most important one to the faeries. They really value and believed them, to the point that break one is considered a huge crime. He promised his heart to Kieran, and although for him it may have been only an “easy way to forget the pain”, to Kieran was obviously more than that. He truly believed them, he truly believed that Mark was his, because Mark himself said so. And, again, he ain’t a human. He is a faerie, and faeries love in a different way. They have these things in a different way.

So when Mark was back home, and was falling in love with a girl he has known for barely a week (while he was with Kier for at least five years now, or maybe even more since the time in Faerie is different) of course this hurt him. Of course this makes him insecure. Again, he was betrayed by his own family, he never has any love before. Mark was the first thing he loved, and the first thing that actually loved him back. Mark was his everything, the only good thing in a life full of only pain, and he was suddenly very aware that he was losing it.

Now, if you read Lord of Shadows, you may know that Kieran said to Mark that Iarlath was making him believe that Mark was in danger. That the Shadowhunters are planning to kill him. First of all, Kieran is a faerie, so he can’t lie. He simply can’t even if he wanted to. Second, as it was already said, he never got to know Shadowhunters before, and he also never have a love and caring family, so he hasn’t absolutely any reason to doubt the truth in Iarlath statements. Now he was not only scared of losing Mark to Cristina, but also to the fucking death. So when Mark told Cristina secrets from the Hunt (and, shook, he actually did it! A bunch of people act like Kieran have lied to Gwyn about that and he can’t even fucking lie! Mark in fact told Cristina secrets he wasn’t supposed to), and Kieran told Gwyn about it, he did it out of despair, and thinking this would only bring Mark back to the Hunt, where he would be safe. (As Mark himself said so by the end of Lord of Shadows, and I quote: “You thought you were saving my life”.)

Then everything went to hell. Mark was going to be whipped instead, something that Kieran didn’t anticipate, and as Cassie said on tumblr, he was going to die. And Kieran knew that he was going to die. So he was obviously desperate by the possibility of seeing the love of his life dying in front of him, and he even begged to be whipped instead. He humiliated himself (even Iarlath said so) even though fairies are an extremely proud people, even though he was a fucking Faerie prince. He begged to Iarlath – a nobody – on his knees. But they didn’t allow him, and Julian offered himself to Mark’s place.

Now, again, Kieran knows nothing (like a true Jon Snow) about family. His family would, as he said later, happily watch him die. They had tortured him already. He couldn’t have a true notion of how much Mark’s family truly meant for him. And again, Mark was going to die, and he was desperate. So when Julian offered himself to take the whipping, Kieran said to Iarlath to agree. Because it seems to be the only way to save Mark from dying in front of him. Because he barely knew Julian. Because he is a faerie. Because he didn’t know what family really means. Because Mark was his only family.

Then, when he saw how mad Mark became, when he fully understood the dimension of what he – not on purpose – have done, and what Mark’s family did meant to him, he tried to repair things. He followed Iarlath, and even killed him, even though he probably knew already he would be condemned by said action. He was desperate to get the Blackthorns to go save Tavvy, and again he begged. He knew they would probably kill him in the second he appeared again on the institute but he did it anyway. The only reason why they were able to actually save Tavvy was because Kieran helped, as Julian and Mark recognized later. Without him, Tavvy would be dead.

And then, having now understood what Mark’s family really meant to him, even though Kieran could have used the breach in the agreement – cause they were supposed to give the killer to the faeries, and they didn’t – to have Mark back in the Hunt with him, he didn’t. He even said he would fight for Mark right to stay. And then he goes back to the Hunt alone, accepting that he hold probably never saw Mark again.

Now, about Lord of Shadows: A lot of people are saying that Kieran was out of character in said book, but honestly how the hell could anyone know what is or it isn’t out of character for him? He literally barely appeared in Lady Midnight, and in all the scenes he was under extreme pressure. He was all the time scared of losing Mark, and doing pretty desperate things. How could anyone know what he would do under more “normal” circumstances? Erec said he was a pretty sweet kid, and same Erec, Adaon and even the King himself said in different moments that all the Unseelie court pretty much liked him. So no, no one can say that what he did in LOS was “out of character” because you can’t know, based only on LM, what his character truly is.

Now, I don’t wanna enter in the entire memory loss thing. I’ll only talk about some key points, which are:

First: The dream. I saw a lot of people saying that Kier “gave Mark a weird sex dream” and things like that: No, he didn’t. And Cassie Clare said herself that he didn’t. I asked her, and she said, and I quote: “He did not sent Mark a “sex dream” – he sent him a conversation dream, and both their choices/desires in the dream took it in a physical (if totally imaginary) direction.” This was in my personal inbox and I can gladly provide screenshots to anyone who may want them. She confirmed Kieran could only control the dream scenario, and that Mark’s choices on the dream were his own, in these exact words.

Also Kieran said – and again, he can’t lie – that he would not want Mark’s love if it wasn’t a freely given love. Even though Mark was breaking his love promises to him, and even though this was a serious crime to the faeries, Kieran recognized that Cristina could be good for Mark, and that Mark need her kindness. He said he wasn’t jealous of her, and by the end of the book he was even willing to get out of the picture, saying he and Mark would be done with each other.

He learns, by the end of the book, that he was being used by the entire Blackthorn family. He learns that they were lying to him all the time, and that everybody knew but him. His father, the Unseelie King, said if he helped the Blackthorns there’s no place on earth or in Faerie were he would be safe from him. That he would do unimaginably tortures on him, that he would put him under unimaginably pain, till he finally killed him. And Kieran agreed to help anyway, even after all these things. He still wanted to testify, to bring Helen back to her family, and not because of Mark but to pay his debt with Emma, Julian, and the others. Cassie said later on tumblr that this was an agreement that only prejudices and put in danger Kieran himself, and anyway he wanted to do it. For them.

Also, during the course of the book he saved Cristina’s life where he could easily have just killed her and came back to the Unseelie court, being a recognized prince again. He saved Livvy, Kit and Ty’s lives by telling Mark about the Riders coming for them in time. He was actually concerned about them, and even begged Mark to let him go find them, and promised on his life to do so. He saved Emma’s life when the Rider was about to kill her. He helped bringing Helen and Aline back. He said to Diego he would protect Kit and Magnus when hell was happening in the accords hall.

So, yes, he made mistakes. Yes, he did bad things. But characters aren’t supposed to be always good. To never do anything wrong. They are allowed to fail, and to regret that, to try to make things better. And Kieran did all these things.

No, he isn’t a selfish character who only thinks on himself. No, he isn’t abusive and don’t play mental games with Mark.

He is a character who was tortured and suffered almost the entirely of his life, and them loose the only good thing he ever had. The only love he ever had.

And even if Kierark or Kierarktina isn’t endgame, I still hope he can find happiness and peace. He deserves it just like every other “good guy” in this book.

And you can hate him all you want, nobody is saying that you can’t. But your hate won’t make any of these things less true.

I’m done.

So, I love how everyone is getting all into the eldritch horror visibly fae knowingly magical encounters. The descriptions are SO COOL. 

But I’ve been thinking about how our understandings of the Fair Folk originated not with people who had these super obvious encounters with this visible magic figure. Instead, they come from people attuned to the ways in which this world as it is, is magical and frightening and overwhelming, and decided that eldritch monsters were the most logical and comforting explanation. So, I’ve been thinking a lot about how so many interactions with the fair folx could happen without the student knowing it….how many of these interactions and deals may have happened already. A few true stories: My roommate joined ROTC her freshman year. Four years of university for free, for five years of military service. Don’t tell me that there is just flesh and bone under the glamour of a military uniform, under the medals worn by those who watched her sign her contract. The Fair Folk have always loved games, and to gamble your life in the future of uncertain war is certainly worth $60,000 tuition per year for four years, plus a monthly stipend.  I have a friend whose financial aid is paid by a grant from some folks from New York City. In exchange, once a year she dresses up, takes out her piercings, and goes to dinner with them.

Sit with us, tell us the stories of your studies, sing for us. Oh, you don’t sing anymore? But you sing so lovely. Sing.

At these dinners, she does not let her smile drop.  I worked with a senior who would be Successful. They did everything, could not say no, every opportunity bigger than the last and they could Do It All. Directing a musical with a full orchestra in the biggest theater, performing across town themself in a different show each weekend for months on end, five classes and a thesis. One night, drunk and at 2am, a time were the glamour drops and world blurs into honesty, they said “I am so fucking lonely.” That is a powerful trade: love as fair as can be, a beating heart, community. But they wanted to be able To Do It All and they did.  A few years ago, the school was raising money for the endowment (the school is always raising money for the endowment). They were holding a fundraising dinner, with Big Important People who must be Inspired by Students Like You in order to donate. They gathered together the most talented performers of the whole university. Dancers whose bodies defied physics, pianists who seemed to play with extra hands, singer whose voices rang inhuman. Maybe there is a reason we already had those skills, it’s hard to know. We’ve all made so many sacrifices already to end up at a school where we can get not a single credit for our talents. Maybe something is already taking its due. Still. They gathered us, and planted us through the field to mime silent excitement as the Big Important People entered the tent in a procession. They had us perform for them – but never in the way we do best. Bottle up your talent, make it look like this. Dressed us all head to toe in white. Gave clear instructions.

Hand them this book. Collect these cards. They will write a wish. If they speak to you, just smile. Do not speak back.

They had us wait behind the kitchen.

Whatever you do, do not eat the food.

The university knows how to make a deal. They know what a little Talent and a little Dignity is worth. And we already owe them so much…why not this too?  In the morning I went back to where the tent had been, only to find an empty football field.  —— I feel like I have to add that the last story is literally 100% true. The others I have taken small creative liberties with (mostly the ‘lonely’ one cause I don’t want that person to be identifiable). But this one is hundo percent reality. Nothing I could add about it would make it sound less weird. They set up this crazy huge tent for it and thousands of dollars of lights and projection equipment, and the next morning had taken down the entire thing. They had this whole projection thing that took up a side of the stadium with a video about how great the university is, except I’d never even HEARD OF most of the professors or programs they interviewed or discussed in it (like its a big uni but still). Went to go look them up the next day, but couldn’t remember the names. They had us count a specific number of steps from one section to another. They had us do a weird running pattern on the stadium stairs that was supposed to look cool but I think just opened a portal in to my own personal hell. I still have the white sneakers and sweatshirt they gave us but I legit have not worn them since that night; I’m slightly scared to wear them but somehow can’t throw them out. When the donors walked in to the tent, we literally just stood around the field jumping up and down with excitement (silently) and waving flags (silently) and for the first time I understood Artaudian horror. They had cards at their table that they were supposed to write these messages on, and then we would collect them in these books, and honestly the whole night is pretty hazy but it was weird. The whole thing was directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (I swear to you this is true). Guys I’m low key pretty sure I’ve been to a revel and let me tell you, you are not a participant. You are there, but at best you are quaint entertainment, to be hidden in the corner when you’re not amusing them. You will do what they ask you (tell you). And there will be a part of you sitting on your shoulder saying, are you really doing that? And the answer will be yes, and it won’t be until after you leave that the wave will crash over you, nearly drowning you in the question, as you sputter awake asking, WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK JUST HAPPENED?

My thoughts on SPN episode 12x19:

  • Oh snap. This is some trigger warning shit up in here. 
  • YAAASSSSSSS to Cas being honest about where he was and what he was doing. YASSSSSS TO HONESTY. 
  • Ok ok ok I know I have shipper goggles on. I’ll own that. But this Dean being mad at Cas scene… this is like every fanfic I’ve ever read. And it is giving me life. 
  • OMG. THE FIGHT FOLLOWED UP BY A MIXTAPE SCENE. WHAT IS LIFE.
  • Dean admitted he was worried about Cas. Legit said that it was not okay for Cas to just go missing because he wAS WORRIED. IT HAS BEEN TEN MINUTES. THE EPISODE COULD JUST END HERE AND I’D BE COOL WITH THAT. 
  • “You, me, and Sam. We’re just better together… so let’s go Team Free Will.” YASSSSSS DEAN. THIS IS ALL I’VE EVER WANTED.
  • Are you frickin’ KIDDING ME!? Cas left??? And stole the colt??? And is going rogue??? After that heartfelt talk???? UUUUGHHHHHHH why writers why??? THIS IS WHY WE CAN’T HAVE NICE THINGS.
  • I’m mad as hell. Answer your damn phone Cas.
  • Ok, Cas, you have the girl. You’re having second thoughts about murdering her. WHY haven’t you called Dean or Sam yet??
  • Welp. Guess I was wrong about the whole honesty and trust thing between the Winchesters and Cas thing. 
  • LOLLLLLL Dean saying, “It’s like herding cats” when referring to Cas is the best. 
  • WHHHYYYYYYY would Dean just give up his keys? Like. Come on man. 
  • Is Cas being… manipulated by an unborn baby? Yeeeeeah no thanks. 
  • Aw I miss Joshua’s other vessel :( 
  • Nooooo not the colt *cries tears of endless sadness* 
  • I love Cas being badass. I love Cas healing Dean. 
  • I do NOT love Cas being weird as hell and just abandoning the Winchesters. NOT A FAN. NOT. A. FAN. 

In conclusion: The mixtape scene was everything. EVERYTHING. 

Sangwoo’s Room

Originally a part of this post, I didn’t want this point to get lost since I only talked about it as a loose tie to another theory. 


This is the first time we see Sangwoo’s room, it’s a panel from Chapter 1 and the way his room looks does not change during the series.

Look at his room, what do you see?

Exactly. Nothing. You see nothing. There is nothing in his room. I’m not Korean, I don’t know how they decorate their house, I don’t know if they are this minimalistic but there is no little trinkets, posters, pictures, trophies, books, clothes, anything that may belong to Sangwoo. Not just the room, but it’s the whole downstairs. It’s an eerie blank canvas, there is nothing in the house that makes it look like someone is living in it.

Comparison to Yoon Bum’s room:

Yes, Yoon Bum obviously lives in a much smaller place than Sangwoo but he has his keys, his phone, his ID the nail polish he stole. He has things around, that belong to him.

Sangwoo on the other hand, has nothing around, anywhere. His house is clean and bare like it was just bought and furnished. 

It’s actually quite suspicious how Sangwoo manages to keep a two floored house this clean and presentable all by himself, and we know he is, because Seungbae checks upstairs and he says nothing, so there is nothing incriminating or weird upstairs either.

But, this is the house Sangwoo grew up in, and Sangwoo was a kid once, he must have some stuff that belong to him around. And, as a kid, they couldn’t have put him in this room with the closet leading to the basement, right? No, he would have definitely been too afraid to sleep there, kids are famously afraid of basements, right?

So…This is not Sangwoo’s actual room. This is not the room he grew up sleeping in.

His actual room is upstairs.

Prompt: Isak gets shy every time Even calls him babyboy

Hi anon! This has been in my inbox forever and a day. I’m sorry about that- but i hope you don’t mind that I’m stepping into it now? :P

And I’m hoping this comes close to what you wanted?

————————–

It starts out, as most things do, simply.

“Baby, will you pass me the straw?” Even’s voice is unassuming, almost distracted as he picks at his fries- attention half on Mahdi as he’s telling some crazy story about his weekend at the lunch table.

And Isak just… freezes. And flushes. 

And it’s weird- because it’s not even the first time Even has called him baby. When they’re home together, Even uses the pet name more than his actual one. So it’s not like it’s unusual. 

And yet.

Clearly Even can Isak stiffening up beside him, legs pressed together as close as they were, but he just furrows his eyebrows, “Isak? Soda? You said we could share.”

“Right,” Isak responds quickly, face almost completely red and shoves the soda to him. “Here.”

Isak risks a glance upwards from the table he had been studiously studying since the minor slip up.

And fucking Magnus is grinning. 

“Fuck you,” Isak groans, almost as an instinct to anything that Magnus says.

“I didn’t say anything!” But he’s still grinning, dopey and wide and Isak knows that this means his seconds of humiliation are far from over. “But if I did say anything, baby, it would be how cute you two are.”

“No.” Isak points at Magnus’s stupid fucking face, “Nope. That is not happening.”

“What isn’t, baby?”

“I’ll kill you.” 

And then Even’s jumping in, eyebrow cocked and the grin playing on the corners of his mouth, “Sorry, did we miss anything?”

The bastard didn’t miss a damn thing.

Isak shrugs, trying to play it off, “Not at all. I think Magnus was choking.”

Magnus puts his hands up in defeat, but switches topics easily enough.

——–

Eskild and Noora are home.

Which Isak is panicking about because Eskild and Noora specifically said they were not going to be home today. And Linn is visiting with her parents, so Isak and Even were supposed to be alone.

“Hey there, Isak.” Eskild greets, throwing down his keys on the kitchen table.

“Hi,” Isak says, (and fuck is his eye twitching?), “You’re home? I thought you and Noora were going to a gallery or a club or something and you weren’t going to home?”

Noora gives him a weird look, opening the fridge and pulling out a container of strawberries, “It was cancelled because of the rain. What’s your problem? And where is your shirt?”

(Where is his shirt? Noora is fucking lucky that’s the only thing missing-)

Before Isak can respond; before he can even think of a way to quickly usher them back the fuck outside-

“Baby, where’d you go? I thought I owed you a blow-”

Even stops at the foot of the kitchen and thank fucking God he had decided to at least put on underwear when only minutes before he had had none.

The four of them stare at each other in silence.

And Isak. Wants. To. Die.

“Baby?” Eskild finally says, stupidly, before turning to Isak, “That’s so sweet.”

Eskild’s gaze travels back to Even and sweeps down-

Fuck no. 

“Eskild,” Isak says loudly, “sorry you guys, I was promised a day alone and a day alone with Even I will have. Out out out!”

Noora snorts into loudly her palm and turns around, little sounds of mirth escaping. But Eskild is the worst, not moving until Isak has to physically shove him back to the front door. When they are both half out the door, Eskild throws a hand out and in his loudest, most obnoxious voice, “Have fun! Be safe. You two are the fruits of my loins. Love you!”

And that’s just-

Isak fucking slams the door behind them and melts.

How would the boys react to little Phase 1 Noodle giving them a make-over? (even better if they had to give an important interview afterwards)

Murdoc Niccals:

  • Disgusting (although he does feel like a pretty lady uwu).
  • If Noodle’s going to make up his entire face, she better do a good job.
  • Might as well do his hair, too. If you’re going all out, go all out.
  • Mudz is definitely upset when she messes up on his eyeliner and smudges his lipstick.
  • He’s even MORE upset when he finds out that he has an interview to record afterwords with MTV and whatnot.
  • When he hops into the car with Russ and 2D, Russ starts to laugh and bang on the steering wheel, while 2D sits in the back, extremely uncomfortable with the situation he was inserted into.
  • Midst interview, Murdoc interrupts one of the reporters, asking if they liked his makeup, because he did it himself friggin liar.

2D:

  • When Noodle asks to lather 2D up in some makeup, he doesn’t disagree.
  • He loves making Noodle happy, and if this makes her happy, so be it.
  • Even though the makeup comes out pretty ratchet, he still “ooh”’s and “aah”’s at the ideas she had in mind.
  • When Noodle asks to do Stu’s hair, he obliges.
  • After making some pigtails and putting a crown on his head, Russ pops his head into the room.
  • “We have to leave for that interview– Common’.” Forgetting that he had somewhere important to attend to, 2D waved Noodle goodbye, not wanting to fix his hair or wipe of the makeup– he didn’t want to hurt her feelings.
  • The first thing Stu says when he sees the reporters (and the camera) is that Noodle did his makeup, and that he is very proud of her pristine work.

Russel Hobbs:

  • When Noodle starts doing his makeup, there is no turning back.
  • She goes full out contour/bronzer/highlighter/eyeshadow/eyeliner/mascara/lipstick… Where does she even get this stuff? She’s only 10, geez-
  • When Mudz starts whipping the keys on his lanyard around, saying that they need to bolt for the interview, Russel just gets up and hops into the car.
  • Nobody questions why he has makeup on on the car ride there, Murdoc and 2D already have a pretty good idea regarding to who did it.
  • When the gang gets to the interview, everybody shoots Russel weird, condescending looks… But he never says a thing.
  • He goes through with the entire interview without explaining a thing.

anonymous asked:

Why was Dean acting like an ass to Cas in season 6?

Don’t worry about it, though. We’ve all been there, and especially me. 

So, I won’t get into this a lot because season 6 has been discussed so much - some meta bloggers, like @elizabethrobertajones, even have weirdly specific tags for it (hers is ‘we don’t talk about season six’, which I always assumed was a veiled threat and, as it turns out, she thinks it was a very romantic season and we don’t discuss it nearly enough). 

There are various theories about how this season was built, and one of them is that it was supposed to turn Cas for good - to make him into an enemy and then eliminate him from the show, if I remember correctly, so the general consensus seems to be, Why wasn’t Dean more of an ass to Cas in season 6? This was a narrative centered on misunderstanding and miscommunication, and from Dean’s point of view, Cas was acting like a demented Callahan type for no reason, which, given angels were (they still are, but back then it was particularly noticeable) the most powerful creatures Dean’d ever encountered, was incredibly dangerous, not to mention unpredictable. Dean should have wanted to take Cas out just to be on the safe side, and if it had been anyone else, he would have done it. But, of course, deep bond and stuff. Even after Cas’ done the unforgivable and hurt Sam, possibly for good (protect Sam: remember that’s Dean’s genetic imprinting, and he steamrolls over both friends and enemies to get that done), Dean still has enough empathy and affection for Cas to come clean about his own feelings, and to try and help Cas, or even save him, if he can. That, I think, is unprecedented?

Something that doesn’t come up a lot as a reason why Dean was so awful to Cas during this season (and therefore, what I’ll focus on here) is how Dean constantly refuses to see Cas for what he is - not a human being, but an unknowable, alien, otherwordly creature

Now, from Dean’s perspective (at the beginning of season 4), angels are not monsters, or things he hunts, or things that exist in the real world; they are, instead much more close and personal than that. They are a cherished memory of his mother, and they are, therefore, an emotional concept which symbolizes peace and being safe and thinking that things could, one day, be alright. This is thrown into particular sharp contrast if we compare Dean’s religious beliefs to Sam’s - we know that Dean doesn’t believe in God, and therefore angels, and that he doesn’t pray. So, for him, angels really are this intimate, childish thing he’s allowed himself to cling to all these years: his mother’s voice, full of love, biding him goodnight. And when Cas shows up, it’s painfully clear that Dean takes his very existence personally, and he’s not at all happy with any part of it. Cas is important in the narrative because he sort of ‘pushes’ Dean out of his comfort zone; he challenges him, and makes him feel out of control in a life where Dean’s fought so hard to be in control at all times (because someone had to be). In a way, I wouldn’t be surprised if Cas’ overt sexual aggressiveness was planned for exactly this reason - because Dean’s been written as bi from the start, and yet this is a part of himself he keep a tight rein over, and Cas’ behaviour very nearly shatters all that. We’ve seen Dean’s uncomfortable with being flirted at, and he’s uncomfortable with anyone being too close to him (in every sense) and Cas, in this sense, is a nuclear reaction. All those secrets Dean’s fought so hard to protect from his brother and Bobby and everyone else - now there’s someone who knows them. All of them, including what he really thinks about himself and the shameful things he did in Hell and how they made him feel. And the fact Cas was always in Dean’s personal space was partly meant, I think, to symbolize this intrusion into Dean’s mind and soul. 

(It must have been terrifying, really.)

And the thing is, out of all the possible responses Dean could have to this gobsmacking, life-changing revelation (that God exists and angels exist and one of them saved him from Hell and is now following him around), what Dean chooses to do is extremely revealing: he starts treating Cas like a human

Jeon Jungkook // Cold Turkey

Author’s Note: Lowkey inspired by my prom date. If you’re curious, hmu about it or send me an ask!

Summary: Your best friend, Jungkook, cuts you off–cold turkey.

Originally posted by sugutie

The thing about Jungkook is that he knows that he’s beautiful, and he knows that he is perfect. He knows that he is good at a lot of things. He knows that he’s rather smart. He knows that countless girls marvel at his existence. That is why he picked you to be his friend–you never spared him the time of day. He liked that you didn’t bat an eye at him. That’s his favorite thing about you, actually. You don’t bother him like everyone else does. That’s why you’re both so close.

To ignite that friendship, he sat next to you during a lecture one day. You had your notebook prepared with a series of pen colors to categorize every note. You’d just gotten new glasses so your vision of the board was exceptional. Then, Jungkook put a small box on your notebook. After staring at the box of powdered doughnut holes for more than enough time, you looked over at the brown-haired boy; a confused mask consuming your face. He was wearing a vibrant red sweatshirt and black joggers.

A smile spread over his smooth face as he said, “Doughnut hole?”

And the rest is history.

Handcuffed

REQUEST: Hey!! Can I have a fluff imagine where Dan and the reader are friends, and they like each other, so Phil tries to “get them together” and as a joke he handcuffs them and ended up losing the key 😂😂

You know that feeling when you’re coming out of an intense nap and as you’re waking up it feels like you’re rising out of deep water? Well, that’s the feeling you have right now. The last thing you remember is watching a movie with one of your best mates, Dan, who you may or may not have a bit of a crush on. You both must’ve fallen asleep though, because you’re now waking up with your head rested against his shoulder. You reach up to try to rub the sleep out of your eyes and you feel something metal on your left wrist. “What the crap?” you mumble, lifting your hand up to see a pair of handcuffs linking your wrist to Dan’s.

Your voice wakes Dan, who yawns and looks at you, sleepy eyed, “What was that?”

You hold up your arm, gesturing to the handcuffs. “Did you do this?” you ask.

He lifts up his own hand to examine them. “What the fuck? No. These are Phil’s prop handcuffs for videos. PHIIIL!” He calls loudly, to which he gets no response.

“What the hell?” you ask. “Why would he handcuff us together?”

Dan rolls his eyes,fishing his phone out of his pocket with his free hand. “Who knows- probably thought it’d be funny or something. I’m going to call and find out where he is and how to get out of this.”

You wait while Dan calls, and sigh when you hear Phil’s voice mail through his phone. “What are we supposed to do?” you ask out loud, more to yourself even than to Dan.

“I don’t know- this is so weird,” Dan replies. “I guess we’ll just have to wait until he surfaces. I’ll try to call him again soon. I mean, I guess we can try to look for the key in his room or something, but you know Phil.-”

You giggle. “Unorganized,” you say, finishing his sentence for him. He nods in response, agreeing. “Do you want to just like, find something on tv to watch? I mean, it’s probably going to be the easiest thing to do while we’re cuffed together.”
“Sure,” Dan answers. You get up to grab the remote, but trip over Dan’s feet as you do, causing you to stumble and fall back onto the sofa and into his arms, landing with your face about an inch from his.

“You alright?” Dan asks, his eyes scanning your face worriedly.

“Yeah, sorry,” you say, a little breathlessly. Your proximity to him is leaving you a little frenzied, and your heart is beating a mile a minute.

“Hey,” he whispers, reaching up his free hand and lightly touching your cheek.

“Hi,” you reply, leaning towards him slowly, feeling as if there’s a magnet pulling you in.

He closes the gap, pressing his lips to yours a bit hesitantly, as if he’s nervous.

“It worked!!” Phil’s voice startles you both, and you jerk apart, flushed and embarrassed, to find that Phil has walked into the lounge and found you two kissing.

“What?” Dan asks in response.

“I handcuffed you together, kind of as a joke, but also because it’s so obvious you guys like each other and you just needed a little push together!”

“So you handcuffed us together…?” you reply. “That was your answer to that?”

He shrugs, “It worked!”

“Way to go Phil. Congratulations.” Dan says sarcastically. “Now where’s the key?”

It’s Phil’s turn to be sheepish. “I may have lost it…”

“PHIIIIL!” you and Dan say in unison.

Humans are Weird - Part 3

~Yo my last two parts gained me 41 followers…holy shit. I guess you guys really like this…Anyways, here’s part three. Hope you enjoy it!~


Xylion sighed as he walked towards the Captain’s quarters. Zellnor had requested he go to his office so he could talk to him. Xylion knew it would be about the humans, and he was already making a list of all the things he would say about them.

He sighed as he stood in front of the door. The keypad beeped as he touched each individual key. The sound of multiple pings sounded once the door began to open. He trudged in, his whole body heavy. Xylion was dreading this already.

Captain Zellnor looked up at him. “Ah, Xylion! You’re here! Have a seat.”

Xylion did what his Captain told him too. He sat in the chair in front of his desk, and heard the door close shut behind him. Xylion stared at his boss, waiting for him to speak.

“So, how are the humans doing?” Zellnor asked, his sharp teeth glinting in the light around them.

Xylion sighed. “Captain, if I may be honest, they are…eccentric, to say the least.”

Zellnor frowned. “What do you mean, Xylion?”

“Well, for one, they have strange…activities.”

“Like what?”

Xylion sighed as he thought of one specific event.


Xylion walked down the hall, when he heard muffled voices. He frowned as he looked towards one of the doors. Xylion moved towards it and was about to open the door when he heard loud cries in the room. He immediately thought that perhaps one of the humans was in trouble! Why else would they be screaming?

He frantically typed the code into the keypad, his tentacles slipping every so often. Curse his species! Why should they, when scared or nervous, start secreting mucus? It was disgusting and not useful whatsoever!

The door beeped open and he pushed into it, his breathing erratic and quick. Sitting on the floor was the humans, with Human Isaac standing up, a bunch of colorful cards lying all around him and his face red with rage.

“How dare you play that card, Fredrick!” Human Isaac screamed, looking down at his fellow human.

Human Fredrick, however, simply grinned. “Hey, it’s not my fault that everyone else had draw two cards, and I had a draw four one.” Human Fredrick moved his shoulders up slightly at the end of his sentence. Why Xylion had no idea.

Human jenny sighed as she looked at them. “Honestly, Isaac, it’s just a stupid game.”

Human Isaac seemed to break when Human Jenny said this. HIs head slowly turned to look at her, and his right eye was twitching. Xylion felt his spines stand on end when he saw the expression of anger, disbelief, and other odd emotions. Even Human Jenny seemed shocked at the look. “Just…a stupid…game?” Human Isaac said, his voice an octave higher than normal.

Human Jenny glanced worryingly at Human Mason, who was merely staring at Human Isaac. “It is not a stupid game, Jenny! This game…this game is the only thing that keeps me going at night! How can I live knowing that I shall not be the sole winner of Uno?” He cried out, throwing his hands into the air. Human Isaac then proceeded to laugh, though something about this laugh made Xylion think it was not a funny laugh. No, it sounded more…crazed.

Human Mason sighed as he stood up. “Isaac, you need to calm down.” He said, his dark eyes looking at Human Isaac with what Xylion could only see as annoyance.

“’Calm down’? Calm down! How dare you tell me to calm down, you oversized-!”

Human Isaac stopped talking once Human Mason punched him in the cheek. Xylion’s jaw dropped as he watched the action. Why would he punch his friend? Human Fredrick sighed. “How did he even get this job?” He asked, leaning his face on his fist.

Human jenny shrugged. “I don’t know, but he sure has some issues.”

Xylion had no words for this event.


Zellnor blinked at him. “That’s…”

“Odd?”

“that’s certainly one way of describing it.”

“Oh trust me, you haven’t even heard the worst yet.” Xylion said, staring his boss dead in the eyes.

“What could be worse than that?” Zellnor cried, his red eyes widening and his scales turning a dark shade of brown mixed with some spots of black. He was shocked, yet also fearful. A good combination for what he learned next about humans.

“Oh trust me, this next story is far worse…”


Hope you enjoyed this part. On the shorter side, I think, but I hope you enjoyed it all the same. The next part is coming out tomorrow, so keep a look out if you want to see it.

So, now I want to make an Effect, but oh my god RPG Maker 2003′s Event Systems are so intimidating, how do I start? A Yume Nikki fangame reference

WELL, you’ve come to the wrong right A place.

Now this tutorial’s gonna require a liiittle bit of familiarity with RPG Maker’s mechanics, but you can brute force your way through it and learn along the way (that’s what I did~) I’m going to be using the Not-Steam version of RPG Maker, because it’s a lot more condensed (and because I don’t want to port Yume Nikki to the Steam version)

Now, of course, the best way to learn how to make a fangame in general, is to see how Yume Nikki itself works. Feel free to explore the game, both inside AND… deeper… inside. Yeah. Go through the maps, see how things are made, and ohhh man if only they weren’t all Japanese-oh wait, that’s what I’m for.

(I’ll also be releasing an English version of Yume Nikki’s coding eventually, I was going to release it with this but decided to wait and see how much I can clean it up)

I am always very impressed with how confident you are with your endgame theories. After all the of the countless instances of romantic tropes and subtext, and bisexual coding being subverted with last minute "no-homos", throw-away female love interests, and flat out denials from writers, CW execs, and actors [Jensen], how are you able to be so positive and sure that Bi!Dean and Destiel will come to fruition canonically and on screen?

Because I don’t like to live in misery and worry. Why waste energy on being negative when it is such a lovely and positive story in it’s entirety. I don’t see why they wouldn’t and Destiel is just a part of the story.

@margarittet and I today were discussing how the show is literally like therapy.

It addresses (among other things):

- mental health
- romantic relationship problems
- familial relationship problems
- toxic dependency
- self worth
- sexuality 
- sublimation
- faith
- familial rejection due to being different, with a heavy undertone of faith and sexuality
- found family
- mental abuse
- physical abuse
- sexual abuse
- child abuse
- mental and physical disabilities
- alcoholism
- fear
- and through it all HOPE

The characters have dragged themselves literally out of the pit of despair on so many occasions and grown to learn how to be happy. If the show does end in death or not fulfilling their endgames then this is missing out on the absolutely key point, that they have taken themselves from darkness towards light, that they have overcome these things and are an amazing role model for anyone with any of these kinds of issues, that there is HOPE at the end of the tunnel.

I just don’t see why they would do that or why I therefore would personally worry about them not doing it. IF for some weird reason they didn’t, say it got randomly cancelled (I don’t think this is likely) or if TPTB veto a part of it then I think there would have to be a bloody good reason as the set up is exactly that all this will be subverted, that the characters are going to get a happy ending, because they deserve it and as a mirror to people in real life it would be a real kick to the bollocks if they didn’t, given the heavily relatable and long drawn out focus on the above issues. Yes it is absolutely true that there may be a reason why they don’t, I don’t write the show, I just talk about what I perceive to be the endgame and what makes sense to me and this is it. Don’t take it as verbatim that it is DEFINITELY going to happen, I mean, I’m not a prophet, it just doesn’t make sense to me otherwise due to the key points of the whole show, not just Destiel.

I mean, just the fact that season 13 is set up as a reverse-mirror to season 1 is precisely to show us how far they have come since then, leading into their endgame.

Bi!Dean and Destiel are for me completely written into the script and have been for a LONG time. Performing!Dean since the pilot (and boy have we got textual confirmation of this now), Bi!Dean since soon after and Destiel since… well honestly since at least 2x13 if not since 1x12, that Dean would find acceptance in himself by endgame and also find love with an Angel. The exposition of the lack of faith is a clear and standard trope. It’s nearly as good as “I just don’t like X, that X is precisely what the character is going to love by the end of the movie”.

Bi!Dean and Destiel are clearly for me in their build up to becoming canon while Performing!Dean was the part that needed to be addressed first, and it WAS.

I wrote a post a while ago pointing out all the other things that the meta writers have been right about, that were confirmed this season, just to kind of prove the point as to why would we/they be right about so much and not about this, when these are two of the things we write about the most.

CAN I ALSO POINT OUT THAT ENDGAME MEANS… ENDGAME. That worrying that it didn’t happen in, say, season 8 or whenever, is totally pointless when the point is that it is going to happen IF it is going to happen, by ENDGAME. We literally CANNOT know until then.

Anyway… I like the story, it makes total sense to me I’m not going to spend my time worrying about it potentially not happening when it doesn’t make sense to me that it wouldn’t.

We really needed to know more about the cognitive world in conjunction with Akechi, and Akechi himself.

There are too many things to cover, but namely:

  • How did Akechi learn to navigate the Metaverse, on his own, at the age of fifteen? 
  • What was his first Palace? What did he learn from that first Palace?
  • When and how did he awaken to his respective Personas? Do they have conflict with one another?
  • What did he learn about his power when it awoke?
  • Did he exclusively use Palaces, or did he find out what Mementos was? If so, how?
  • What did he do about his situation- with the Metaverse that is- before approaching Shido?
  • How did he seal the deal with Shido? What were Shido’s terms?
  • Exactly what happened from then, up until Wakaba’s mental shutdown?
  • When and how did the first ‘running wild/berserk’ incident happen?
  • Did Wakaba have a Palace? What did Akechi learn from her Shadow (and Palace)?
  • How did Wakaba’s mental shutdown happen exactly? Was it a direct order, or a mistake by Akechi that Shido capitalised on?
  • What was Akechi’s reaction to Wakaba’s death?
  • What brought about the ‘Black Mask’? It’s heavily implied to be connected with Loki, but how?
  • When and how did Akechi become a detective in the first place, never mind ‘charismatic ace detective’?
  • What did Akechi learn about cognition over two and a half years?
  • Besides offering praise, it was obvious Shido threatened Akechi. Exactly how did he keep his distance, and control him as his puppet? How did he abuse him- psychologically? Emotionally?
  • What effect did this abuse have on Akechi’s cognition and developing Personas? Does it also affect the ‘Black Mask’?
  • When a bond was secured with Akira, how did Akechi respond?
  • What was his objective with Yald!Igor? Did he ever see his face, or the Velvet Room?
  • What does Yald!Igor, Robin Hood and Loki say to Akechi throughout his journey, at key points?
  • How in the hell does he hide his overall power from Futaba’s Persona?

This list is by no means exhaustive, but I needed it.. clear on paper, so to speak. God, there’s still so much we don’t know.

well I was going to ask for (20) for Zarry but if it doesn't work out any pairing of your choice would be great!

things you said I wasn’t meant to hear

“Haz, I can’t find my keys.” Zayn checks his pockets, his bag, under a few sofa cushions.

Harry pops in from around the corner. He jingles the keys in his hands with a big grin on his face. “I found them.”

“Thanks, babes.” He takes the keys and presses a kiss to his cheek. “You’re so good at finding my shit, dunno why I bother looking.”

Harry shrugs. “A simple Accio always gets the job done.”

Zayn quirks an eyebrow at him. “I don’t… understand what that means.”

“Family joke,” Harry says with a wave of his hand.

He says that a lot, he’s got quite the weird family. Makes sense, Harry’s quite the weird lad. He keeps a toaster in their bedroom and gets a little bewildered by escalators and says things like Accio. And any time he catches Zayn lifting an eyebrow at him, he chuckles and calls it a family thing.
