That’s right! All the themes for the week have been planned out! A month in advance, but hey, gives you all plenty of time to prepare!
Day One (October 22nd):The Moment Where David Became Dadvid. Today’s Content will be based on the moment where David adopts Max or David makes the decision to become his official guardian. Or maybe he’s kind of forced into the choice as a result of Max’s parents not coming to pick him up at the end of summer, or they do show up and are awful and now David has a kid. It’s an idea that’s been around since the very beginnings of the Dadvid AU, but it’s still a fun one to explore!
Day Two (October 23rd): Lights, Camera, Family! You like the Coraline AU? The Holes AU? The Goofy Movie AU (look, the movie’s actually really good and sweet and full of nice father/son moments, don’t judge!)? That one ‘thanks dad’ scene from B99 with Holt and Jake but instead it has David and Max? Any other AUs based off movies or TV shows? Today’s the day to draw some Dadvid stuff for that! Any movies or tv shows AUs are welcomed today!
Day Three (October 24th): Don’t Forget MomGwen! A day all about MomGwen AND Dadvid together, because Gwen needs love for being a nice parental figure to Max too, especially after the s2 finale! It doesn’t have to be shippy (platonic parental figures are great!), and you can include anyone else as a parental figure if you’d like (Yes, even the shitstain Kool-Aid man himself) but keep the main focus on Gwen and David. Also tag any ships accordingly!
Day Four (October 25th): Teenage Dadvid. Hell, since this little AU has gotten so popular lately, why not make a theme day centered around it? Today will be a day to give attention to a teenaged, suddenly-a-parent, probably-has-little-to-no-idea-what-he’s-doing-but-will-still-try-his-damnedest-to-give-his-kid-a-good-life David. Can be cute or angsty, whatever you prefer! Also David can be any age, just so long as he’s a teen and Max is a sweet baby boy. Just to remind everyone and help figure out differences in ages for this day, David is 24 and Max is 10.
Day Five (October 26th): Parenting Isn’t Always Easy OR Family Holidays. That’s right! Two themes today! The first one is dedicated to angst. Family life isn’t always perfect, and an adopted family is no different. Whether it’s Max saying that David isn’t his real dad, David feeling like he’s a complete failure as a parent, David having to give Max up or give him back to his birth parents for some reason, or even Max having nightmares about David not caring about him and being terrified of ending up back where he started with no one caring about him, have some fun with that today! Let’s make this really hurt! You twisted people (says pot to kettle).
If angst isn’t your cup of tea and you’d still like to participate for the day, then there’s the option to make content centered around Max and David celebrating holidays together as a family. You can pick any holiday you want! Christmas, Easter, Hanukkah, Father’s Day (it counts!). You can even choose some non-American-centered holidays since according to canon, Max’s family tree originates from outside the country (India, to be specific) and he still might celebrate the holidays his birth parents celebrated despite living with David (so long as you do proper research on the topic and be respectful).
And if you want to do something for BOTH themes, then go right ahead!
Day Six (October 27th): The More the Merrier! Today’s a day for Dadvid but Dadvid with not just Max! Make some content that involves David being a dad to one of the other campers along with Max. Any camper you want! Think Harrison should have a parent who isn’t afraid of him? Now he does! Want Dolph to have a parent who won’t condone his uncomfortable behavior and teach him right from wrong? Congrats, kid, you have a new dad. Because others deserve to have a dad as cool as David, too! Also now Max has siblings! Fun fun!
Day Seven (October 28th): Whatever You Want Day! Let’s wrap up the week with free day to draw or create any content you want for Dadvid Week, no themes attached! Just have some fun and make some nice content! Was there an AU that didn’t get a theme day? Make some content for that! Go wild!
Once again, if you plan on participating in this week, please read/follow the rules listed on this blog’s page. Your art/content will not be reblogged to this blog if you don’t follow them. Any questions about the week should be sent to my main blog @directium.
Hello, sorry to bother, but my memory is failing me, and I swore you wrote an obscenely beautiful chapbook on angels, demons, and possibly the twelve disciples as rebels/lovers? Am I misremembering? I know it's a tag, but is it a book? Regardless, thank you for sharing all you have in writing and advice. I'll be sending good vibes as you face the obstacles to come.
A compilation of my religious poetry and short fiction, IT BEGINS IN A GARDEN runs the gamut from Old Testament to New, the angelic to the eschatological. Full of both reverence and irreverence, humor, tenderness, and always (always) humanity, this anthology is my contribution to our conversation with the divine.
Since it’s Jonerys appreciation week in the fandom, I decided to write small happy stories of Jonerys everyday of the week despite all my work (and studying to do).
Jonerys Appreciation week Day 1.
1st part of 7-day storyline.
This is taking place after the battle for the dawn, and I know I am skipping time in regards to my previous writings, but I want to write happy events this week, as Jon and Dany deserve to be happy, and I want to give them happiness in my writings..
This story is taking place in Winterfell, right after the battle has ended with the Night King and his army.
Dany opened her chamber’s windows that morning at Winterfell. She felt the heat of the sun on her cheeks as she directly looked at the clear, blue skies after a long winter. The snow was melting on the mountains and in the horizon, the trees had started to give their first green stems signaling to new hopes, and new beginnings. She had scars, tired from the battle as she had lost her children. All of her three dragons had sacrificed themselves in good of humanity. She knew they had died in noble act, even though her heart was burning from grief. She looked down to the courtyard, people of the North were recovering from their pain, and losses. The peasants were working, Sansa, and Arya were tending to their people. Jon. she thought. As she would call him Jon still despite knowing he was Aegon. He was wounded and Samwell Tarly had been tending to him in his chambers for weeks now. She had spent most of her night sitting next to him in his bedside.
