some (random) kleinsen hcs:
➢ jared is a sucker for buffy the vampire slayer. he knows basically every episode by heart, and he loves that awful praying mantis one. rewatching with evan, jared’ll sometimes say, like “hey, maybe we should skip this episode bc of [xy]” (bc, e.g., hush would probs make evan quite anxious), and he fills evan in plot-wise, if they do decide against watching it. obviously, xander is his favourite member of the scooby gang; evan really likes willow and, later, tara
➢ at one point, before they reconciled, jared listens to the only hope for me is you by mcr on repeat for like three hours. it’s a bit (very) dramatic, he knows - but you cannot stop him.
➢ evan has this Giant world atlas with like maps that unfold and stuff; he got it for his ninth birthday from heidi. sometimes the two just leaf through it for hours, dreaming up trips they’ll take and things they’ll do: cross the alps or ride an ostrich in south africa or bathe in hot springs in iceland or do a canopy walk in the amazon rainforest or see the hachiko statue in tokyo
➢ since evan forgets to eat, they’ve kind of made it their thing to cook dinner together. jared’s mum always buys those cooking magazines and when she’s done with them, he nicks them, and him and evan will try out as many new recipes as possible
➢ evan loves ikea and all the neat, fake rooms; he always has to walk through it all, (“… why can’t we just go directly to the lamps, evan, we don’t need anything else” - “this is more than just buying stuff, this is an experience, jared”). anyways, you know how you somehow always end up with a Bunch of knick-knacks? yeah, jared is the one putting all kinds of crap in their cart, so evan has to be the voice of reason (“we have to put at least two-thirds of that back”), but of course, it’d be rude to just drop the things anywhere, so they have to go all the way back to put everything, where it belongs
also, tagging @richardgoranski bc he loves kleinsen even more than I do lol ✨
