and then there's castle

So instead of doing anything else, I got obsessed with the Howls Moving Castle AU.

“A lot of people ask me when and how I knew I was in love with Detective Kate Beckett. I knew I was a goner when I woke up one morning with an irresistible urge to make her my signature pancakes. […] The only times I’ve ever wanted to make pancakes have been when I wanted to cheer up someone I love. Simple as that, pancakes equal love. So does a good cup of coffee, but pancakes, those are serious.”

Happy International Pancake Day!

by far the best part of Howl’s Moving Castle [in the book] is when Howl leaves the house and Sophie is in a Mood so she’s like “fuck it” and grabs his suit and starts cutting it up and Michael is like “NO he’s gonna kill you” and Sophie is like “snip snip bitch”

and when Howl gets back he’s like “why in God’s name did you do that” and she’s like “uh I don’t know! why do you do anything! you fucker! maybe this’ll take your ego down a notch huh!!!” and then she ends up sewing it back together and putting magic into it by accident

  • People: What's your favourite Beauty and the Beast song? *smiles* Probably "Beauty and the Beast"? Or maybe "Bonjour"? No, I know, it has to be "Be Our Guest"!
  • What I say: Oh, I can't possibly choose, I love them all!
  • Meanwhile, inside my head: SO IT'S TIME TO TAKE SOME ACTION, BOYS, IT'S TIME TO FOLLOW MEEEEEEEEE! THROUGH THE MIST, THROUGH THE WOOD, THROUGH THE DARKNESS AND THE SHADOWS, IT'S A NIGHTMARE BUT IT'S ONE EXCITING RIIIIDE! SAY A PRAYER, THEN WE'RE THERE, AT THE DRAWBRIDGE OF A CASTLE AND THERE'S SOMETHING TRULY TERRIBLE INSIDE!

I’m on a roll with headcanons so have some more:

Shiro definitely makes a first impression on the team as Intimidatingly Cool and a major icebreaker between him and Hunk is them bonding over puns. Hunk makes a pun without thinking, and before Lance can even groan about it Shiro fires right back with a related pun and Hunk looks like he’s witnessed a miracle.

Hunk and Lance bond because they were already best friends. Hunk and Keith bond because Keith is like a sad kitten left out in the rain and there’s no way Hunk doesn’t hone in on that like a heat seeking missile. Hunk and Pidge bond over science. Hunk and Shiro? bond over puns.

Coran totally gets in there too but he’s put-out that cultural barriers mean some of his jokes require way too much explanation to be funny. He’s personally deeply vindicated the first time he makes a joke involving klanmuirl migratory patterns and Lance groans right away.

Pidge groans about puns. Her dad and her brother are both awful with puns so she’s just done with them. Lance didn’t mind puns until he started hanging out with Hunk, who takes these things to an entirely new level.

Keith is indifferent to puns but tends to get them like five to ten seconds later than everyone else unless someone explains it to him. (On that note there is no way to make Keith angry faster than “nobody explain the joke.”)

Allura will groan at other people’s puns (especially Coran’s, early on she’s the main indication the paladins have that Coran is making a pun) but once in a blue moon she likes to make them herself. When they’re her puns, she finds them absolutely hilarious. 

  • Lauren: Hey, did you ever see that movie, the one where there's the cowboy and he's, like, the 'king of the castle' and then this astronaut shows up and he tries to take over and so the cowboy attempts to murder him, but instead the astronaut is taken hostage by, like, this evil psychopath and the cowboy has to rescue him and then they end up becoming really good friends?
  • Ally: Toy Story?
  • Lauren: Oh, my God! Toy Story! That's it, that's it. I love that movie.

Serizawa was a castle.

He was built up of stone walls, weathered and crumbling, grown over with moss. His skin was dense walls, frail but strong, hidingempty corridors as veins and lifeless, dusty rooms. His heart was the center of the fortress, surrounded by weakening defenses and blocked away. His eyes were glass mosaic windows, dense with muted colours, the light just barely seeping through. Vines and plants grew up around his feet, trailing and slithering against his skin, digging into the cracks and gouges and blackened marred marks left behind by countless weapons. He was rooted into place, stuck where he was, left to wither away.

And then this astronaut shows up and tries to take over, so the cowboy attempts to murder him. But instead, the astronaut is taken hostage by this evil psychopath. And the cowboy has to rescue him. And then they end up becoming really good friends.

My college feels a little like Elsewhere U: it's in a town out in the middle of nowhere, the downtown area looks like it hasn't changed since the 50's but we have big box stores and chain restaurants, and my dorm is new but is right across from an old empty dorm that needs to be torn down because asbestos but can't because budget. Another dorm was actually torn down and the big empty field where it used to be feels like a liminal space. Also there's a castle. The math dept is in there.

‘the math dept is in there’ oh my god this makes it sound like you’ve lost them. like you stare out the hellscape of 50s empty townbuildings towards the looming castle and shake your heard. ‘it’s been three weeks. we haven’t heard anything. we’re losing hope’
