Rhodey: Okay fine, but we’re turning it into a Hummer. Corvette’s are completely show-off-y, uselss, mid-life crisis cars. Tony: I’m just going to pretend I didn’t hear that, Honey Bear.
Thank you guys for the prompts and so sorry for the wait! This definitely got a little more intense than my original plan… :P But no regrets! Here is the Sciencelings’ attempt at an (ill-advised) birthday present. They tried
alright buckle up motherfuckers, i’m about to school y’all about this wonderful show called Leverage.
let’s start with the premise: they’re a bunch of criminals who come together to work as a team and to “pick up where the law leaves off.” aka: they do illegal shit to legally take out the bad guys, i.e. framing/ruining the reputation of/revealing actual law-breaking by embezzling rich politicians, dirty cops, corporations doing secret shit on the down-low, etc.
each episode is a different bad guy they need to take down for doing something terrible, and each episode they come up with a different scheme to take them out. the team consists of: the hacker, the hitter, the grifter, the thief, and the mastermind behind all their plots. they’re all thieves at one point or another, they all grift, and they all contribute to the plan, but these are their Roles. i’ll go more in-depth on the characters in a sec.
now, i know what you’re thinking already: “wow bruh this show must be edgy af, being about actual criminals doing super illegal shit???” bUT NO. THIS SHOW COULD HAVE BEEN SO DARK BASED ON THE CONCEPT, BUT IT’S LITERALLY THE NICEST, MOST ENJOYABLE SHOW EVER.
it’s also SERIOUSLY unproblematic????? like to unrealistic levels. like Nate’s alcoholism is treated with respect and not just something he “gets over,” but despite his issues, he’s held accountable for when he’s a dick, Parker is pretty clearly neurodivergent and she’s never!! forced to be anything else!!!! anyway i could go on and on.
so let’s meet the gang.
this is Nate Ford:
he’s the mastermind, he’s brilliant and the genius behind each of their convoluted plans. he’s a jerk sometimes, and grouchy, but he’s got good reason, and he NEVER crosses over into “angsty white man justifies his assholery because of his Issues.” he used to work for an insurance company tracking down criminals and thieves before A Thing happened and he became the Dad of a group of them. he makes bad life choices, so i relate. also his son died and he has a rad ex-wife and he struggles with alcoholism. we love him.
this is Sophie Devereaux:
she’s the grifter. she’s a great actress but only when she’s breaking the law it’s a running gag. she’s terrible on an actual stage l m a o. she’s the Mom of the group, and she and Nate are lowkey flirting the entire show. she tells it like it is, but is v compassionate. sassy af. british af. would probably console you about your husband leaving you before stealing your rare artifacts. high-class which shows in the fact that she was primarily an art thief before joining the team. i wouldn’t trust her with my jewelry, but i’d tell her all my secrets, and tbh that’s the best summary of her character that you’ll get.
this is Eliot Spencer:
hooooooooooo boy. where do i begin to describe Eliot Spencer? wel, for starters, he’s the “hitter” of the group aka he beats people up when they can’t sneak their way in or out of a place. or when things go wrong. he’s super fucking badass oh my god??? like i’m pretty sure there’s maybe only one or two times in the ENTIRE. SHOW. that he can’t win a fight?? he also has a Super Secret Dark Past bc he used to be a hitman for hire, which he regrets deeply and is happy to have changed bUT AGAIN!! IT’S NOT A WHITE MALE ANGST THING. he isn’t obsessed with attoning for his actions and his scenes aren’t eaten up with Angst and Melodrama. he also has anger issues, but again, it’s not the same stereotype that you’re used to. he controls it, and he never takes it on on anybody who doesn’t deserve it (aka the bad guys). he gets around with women but he’s not sexist?? he cares about his partners.
also he’s a hardcore chef and will Fite You about food. anyway Eliot is basically the Broody White Man With Dark Past trope turned on it’s head. he’s lovable and sarcastic and could kill a man but would prefer to make you an Omelette Du Fromage or some shit.
this is Alec Hardison, aka My Son:
this is my baby. he’s a nerd and a geek and I Would Die For Him. he’s basically everything that’s good and pure in the world. the epitome of a cinnamon roll. he’s sweet and gentle and wouldn’t hurt a fly–unless that fly is a corrupt ceo personally doing dirty business, in which case that motherfucker is going down with the help of his epic hacking skills. btw did i mention he’s the hacker? yeah. he’s super fucking smart and his sense of humor could rival the sahara desert in dryness. he always makes star trek references and he has a gr8 fashion style and he irritates Eliot to no end, lmao. #platoniclifepartners, tbh. did i mention he’s the sweetest person ever? no? he is.
this is Parker:
she’s the thief, and predictably, she loves money and expensive things. tbh she’d probably stab you faster than anybody else on the team would (and has) but also she is smol and needs to be protected. she’s a killer rabbit. she’s an oddball and in the beginning, most of the others don’t know what to make of her, but they grow used to her. she’s nd af, probably autistic, and Does Not Understand Socialization. same, Parker, same. guess what? she’s never forced into acting like somebody she’s not!! when she has to be the grifter for the con job and interact with people, she’s patiently coached by Sophie, who never belittles or mocks her, and explains it in ways she can understand. she’s weird and i love her.
did i mention how unproblematic this show is? i did? well too fucking bad because i’m gonna say it again: this show is so unproblematic. like what i already said with Nate’s addiction and Parker’s neurodivergence, but wAIT! THERE’S MORE.
Eliot hates guns–detests them–and won’t use them, he’s like constantly grabbing the mooks’ guns and unloading them and tossing them somewhere and it’s basically a huge trigger for him. and it’s always respected. also there’s scenes where like in the middle of a job Parker has to change into a costume and neither of men who are attracted to her–Eliot and Hardison–sneak a peak at her. they both look away during that shit and there is like, never any gross sexist jokes about it. or other things. i love it. also any romantic relationship that develops takes season of growth and shit. there’s nothing particularly Gay, but while heterosexual, it’s not Het.
the recurring antagonist is played by Mark Sheppard, a character called Sterling, who is basically a lawful good Crowley.
also one time they stole an entire country.
Leverage is fucking rad, and the concept is amazing and it coulda been so edgy and shit, but it’s literally so pure and sweet and friggin hilarious and about a bunch of people becoming a family and you need to watch it, my friend. now.
like immediately go google a page to watch it i’m not fucking kidding do it.
I know some of y'all sleep on Burn and think of it as a stereotypical Hamilton song, but you have to really LISTEN to it !!!! Like get some fuckin earbuds or headphones, put that shit in your ears and TURN IT UP. Pippa’s voice is even more magical (as if it could ever be more magnificent) when it’s DEEP IN YOUR EARS! Listen to the instrumental, god, that instrumental. When you hear the music like that you’ll notice little things in the song you’ve NEVER heard before oh my GOD. THE DRUMS SOUND SO BADASS I love Burn this has been a psa
In His Lap (Mick x Plus Size! Reader) Imagines - Request
To my darling anon,
I hope you don’t mind; but I actually combined your idea with another reader’s request, since it was very similar to yours. In addition to, I apologize for the late post. Due to technical difficulties - and just the fact that life sorta got in the way - I am turning this piece into a New Year’s prompt. I’m sorry for the inconvenience, dear anon, but, if you find that you aren’t happy with the piece, please let me know and I’ll write you a seperate Christmas one…!
With love, reversephysics
*~*~*~*~* Imagine: Kendra tries to get you to talk to Mick at the New Year’s Eve Party. At first, you said no; but, after taking a shot, you gained the courage you needed…
“Talk to him!”
“No, I can’t!”
“Yes , ________, you can!” Crossing her arms, Kendra gave you a gently scolding look. “Please do yourself a favor and just walk over there.”
Upon hearing her suggestion, you flushed bright red.
While you have had a crush on Mick for the past few weeks now, you still had yet to start a conversation with the pyromaniac; much less, confess your feelings to him.
Chances were he probably never noticed you.
I mean, who would? Your harsh inner voice scoffed. You’re not pretty, you have no sex appeal and - worst of all - you’re fat. What kind of guy would want THAT?
A small part of you hoped it would be Mick.
Though many assumed there wasn’t much to the guy - what, with his brutish behavior and vulgar language - a part of you liked to think there was more to him.
That he would somehow accept you the way you were.
Peering over at the poker table across the room, you watched your darling hulk of a man play against Leonard and Jax. His brows furrowed, he focused all his attention towards the hand he was dealt with.
You bit your lip. He just looks so…badass.
“Oh my god, ________,” Kendra turned her eyes up to the heavens, before shaking her head. It was her typical ‘don’t-make-me-do-this’ gesture. “You’re a great girl! You could so go over there and say ‘hi’! He’s not that complex of a man to talk to, anyway…”
You probably won't get to this today (for the ides of march) but what about a tsukishima scenario where him and his history nerd gf go on a date to a museum and she's super exited over the Julius Caesar exhibit and he's super excited over the dinosaurs? Overall just really cute??? Thank BB
《I absolutely had to do this for the Ides of March ‘cause I actually am treating it like a holiday. Also, it wasn’t until now did I realize that I referred to him as Kei throughout the entire thing, because in my mind I guess I’m on first name basis with him now, lol. It’s been a while since I’ve written happy Kei and? I liked it? I also learned a bunch of cool new dinosaur facts so props to that》
Tsukishima Kei didn’t quite get why his girlfriend loved the Roman emperors so much. They were all old, narcissistic sadists who, even if they did lead one of the most inarguably powerful empires in history, all seemed to have the temperamental issues of a toddler. The only emperor Kei didn’t have a problem with was Marcus Aurelius, but he was completely disregarded by her. She actually liked the sadists, the numbskulls, the men who made their race horses part of the Roman consul. She adored Caligula, Elagabalus, and this morning, when she rushed over to his house and told him that they absolutely had to go on a date to see the one day Julius Caesar exhibit at the history museum downtown, Kei couldn’t have dreaded his life more. Truth be told, he would’ve slammed the door on her face if it wasn’t for the promise that she’d take him to the dinosaur exhibit and buy him coffee later on.
Although, now that he was at the museum itself, he was glad he accepted the offer.
He had never seen her more excited in her life. The moment Kei admitted that he knew jackshit about the emperors, she practically squealed. He didn’t know why, but she flushed up almost instantaneously, bursting out into a little rant about Quintillus, or whomever. Kei didn’t quite understand why she got so happy, or how, but he did know that he absolutely loved the way she sat on the edge of the driver’s seat, clutching onto the steering wheel just a bit tighter as she got deeper into the one sided conversation, and the neverending smile that grazed upon her lips. He loved it, and if she was already this excited on the car ride there, the museum was going to be one hell of an experience.
“I honestly don’t get why you’re so in love with some old, dead guy, __.” He found himself asking her once she parked in front of the museum. She gave him a soft look, the one that made his heart almost stop in his chest, her cheeks still a bit pink from her spiel, and she clicked her tongue.
“I don’t get why you’re so in love with some old, dead… lizards.”
“Well, I guess I’m not gonna be the only one learning something new today, hm?” He smiled, hurriedly pressing a soft, chase kiss on the corner of her mouth before leaving the car, watching her giggle from the inside. She got out and immediately grabbed his hand, brushing her fingertips against his before she intertwined their fingers.
“We’re gonna see Julius first, right?” She pondered.
“Oh, so you’re on first name basis with Mr. Caesar now, are you?”
“Well, what else am I supposed to call him? It doesn’t matter what I call him, you said it yourself, he’s just an old, dead guy.”
“Oh, so you’re agreeing with me now?”
She paused for a moment, her mouth agape, trying to articulate words to fire back at him. Kei stood on the steps with a victorious smirk, kneeling over to meet her at eye level.
“Did I win this one?”
Kei smiled, staring back at her silently for a moment before pulling her up the steps with him. Kei had always loved this museum, a large, spacey enclosure with a replica of a Mastodon greeting its visitors at the door. A giant Newton’s Cradle display was set off to the corner, giddy children circling around it and throwing around the balls like it was a toy. There was a giant ‘marble sculpture’ of Julius Caesar by the steps, its authentic facade given away by the small code number right underneath his kneecap.
“If the entire exhibit is like that, I’m going to stab myself.” She had joked, sparing it one last glance as she trailed in front of him on the stairs.
“Oh please, you set yourself up for that one.”
She paused for a moment, reaching the top of the steps, then spun around.
“You’re right, I did.” She giggled, grabbing his hands in hers. “I wanted to see if you’d say it or not.”
Kei rolled his eyes, then willingly followed her into the exhibit nearby. She almost immediately started running her mouth, not only capturing his attention, but a group of kids nearby. He had almost laughed, she had known so much they must’ve thought she worked here, or something. She was oblivious to her little crowd, and every so often she’d look up at him, her eyes crinkled in the corners as she smiled, then continued spewing out more information than the info cards on each poster. There were moments where he had accidently zoned out, lost in the expression of her, subconsciously waving her arms around and clapping at whatever the hell it was that she found so exciting. Kei thought it was adorable, painfully so, that there were moments he had to look away or else he was sure he’d find himself in a heap on the floor. There was a moment that she had stopped, just to admire the armor they had put on display. It wasn’t Julius’, but it was someone’s, an old artifact locked up behind a glass chamber and red ropes. She looked up at it fondly, her fingers tapping mindlessly against the ropes.
“You’re so adorable.” Kei caught her off guard as he whispered into her ear, amused by the small gasp she made from being startled. “I think you’re the only person in the world who could talk about a dead narcissist and still sound sexy.”
She guffawed, covering her mouth and nearly doubling over. Her cheeks flushed red, suddenly, and her grip on his hand became bone crushing.
“Never say that to me again, oh my god.” She managed to strangle out in between giggles. “I think we’re done here, I don’t think I ever wanna look at Julius Caesar again.”
“Dinosaur time?” Kei found himself asking, even though he knew the obvious answer was ‘yes’. She nodded, and it was her turn to follow him around now, and the thought of it made him flush up a bit. He knew he was going to run his mouth, the event was inevitable, and part of him really wished the dinosaur exhibit was closed so he didn’t have to. He wasn’t as comfortable with speaking as she was, the thought of dragging in a small crowd of children like she did set off an anxiety alarm in his head and oh god, his skin was crawling. Although, by the time he reached the exhibit, and there was a small velociraptor to greet him, the anxiety alarm was dismantled, and the useless trivia trigger was set off.
“You know real velociraptors were about the size of a turkey, so this whole model is completely inaccurate?” He began. He felt a bit insecure about all of this, for some odd reason, and when he looked back at her to see her nodding at him with a small smile of reassurance, he felt safe. He sighed and continued, pointing out his favorite dinosaurs and spewing the weirdest facts about each to the point where he actually surprised himself a bit.
“Hey, Kei, are those the Brachiosaurus’?”
“The one on the left is, good girl.” He found himself saying, not even bothering to correct himself with the ‘good girl’ comment, and continuing. “The other one is an Apatosaurus, you can tell the difference, ‘cause Brachiosaurus has longer front legs, see? They belong to the order sauropoda, which were the largest land animals to ever roam earth, so obviously these models aren’t to scale…” He found himself rambling on again, interrupted by her sudden giggling. “What?” He asked, suddenly growing self conscious. This is what he feared, coming off as too annoying, talking too much, but then she leaned up on her tiptoes and gave him a deep kiss on the lips, the anxiety of that melted away, and a whole new fear creeped up on him. Although the dinosaur exhibit was clear, most of the museums visitors flocked in the main attraction for the day, he still could help but flush at the fear of being caught.
“You think I’m cute when I talk?” She muttered through the kiss, “God, you’re the cutest thing ever. I could listen to you talk about dead lizards all day if you let me.”
“Why’d you cut me off, then?”
“‘Cause I wanted to tell you that you looked like the Brachiosaurus up there.”
Kei snorted, eyeing the model quickly before looking back at her.
“Really now? Is that what this is all about?”
She nodded, then pointed at the small, prehistoric bird that was propped beside its leg.
“And that’s me, clinging to you like the small, desperate animal I am.”
“Oh, that’s a Merriam’s Teratorn. Its pretty much the prehistoric equivalent to your modern day vulture. They were pretty badass, so relating to one isn’t that big of a tragedy.”
“Oh my god, is there anything you don’t know, you nerd?” She said fondly, still propped up on her tiptoes as she ran her hands through his hair. He only smirked in reply, looking around the room for people before quickly pecking her lips.
“You should give me twenty two more of those.” She hummed.
“For the Ides of March.”
“Please.” He rolled his eyes, letting her slip down from his arms suddenly. “You’re treating this like it’s an actual holiday.”
“You treated the announcement of “Jurassic World Two” like a holiday, so let me live.” She shrugged. Kei shrugged, muttering a quick, ‘fair point’, before grabbing her hand and pulling her along again.
“You know I love you, right?” He said suddenly, in the middle of admiring a Dilophosaurus pelvis, the most unromantic setting for him to say such a thing.
“Really, I didn’t know that.” She said with sarcasm.
“Oh, quit it. I’m trying to be cute here.”
“While looking at the reproductive tract of a dead lizard?” Kei huffed, looking down at her from the corner of his eye.
“I’ll take it. I’d rather it be that than Julius’ stab wounds.”
Adrien made a face and poked Chloe in the cheek. “We’ve been standing here for ten minutes, are you going to start drooling all over your dress over an advertisement, or are we going to actually make our brunch reservation on time?”
“But look at her, Adri-kins,” Chloe smiled, “she’s got her line coming out, and she just looks so confident and badass and sexy and oh my God I’m dating that, can you believe it?”
Adrien pulled her away from the third Dupain-Cheng poster they passed that afternoon and turned the corner towards the restaurant they were headed towards. “You’ve also been living with that for close to two years and I’m sure she’d love to have you admire and ravish her later this evening after our brunch date that you promised me.”
This is something that I have been wondering about for a while, and since it is related to writing I decided to ask one of my favorite writing blogs...Is it wrong for guys to want to write romance? Not the steamy, rated R stuff, but rather the process of falling in love bit. I love action, adventure, and science fiction, but I always have romance intertwined in it. It is something my friends find hilarious and I can't help but wonder if it is really all that strange....
Okay, well here’s a representation of what happened when I read this:
*Runs down stairs in a rage, trips on bottom step and almost breaks ankle*
“Mum! You’ll never believe what someone said to my Anon!”
*Gripping phone tightly, mum stepping away a little due to my ‘minor’ freak out*
*Reads the message and has to stop mid-way through because I’m too pissed*
And now, I’ve sat here and reread this ask about 8 times. Darling, Write whatever the f**k you want to write. Don’t feel bad because of your ask, that is not what I’m getting mad at. I’m mad because someone (or group of someone’s) was teasing and putting my anon down for writing romance. Write The Romance! No one has any right to tell you what to write, so don’t take it to heart. If they irritate you once more for writing romance, you let me know and I will be there asap to punch a few faces. Then we get coffee and write romance novels like total badasses, okay? I’m sorry for my anger, oh god, I hope I haven’t scared you all off… I just feel that things like this shouldn’t be stereotyped to one gender and no one should be hurt by someones words for doing something that they’re probably rather good at. And if you want to write smut, you damn-well write it.
I love you all very much and if someone hurts any of you because of what you write or the way you write, I swear I will fly out to your hometown and start some shit. No kidding… Good luck with the romance writing and message me if you want someone to tell you good things about you and your writing. Lots and lots of love from Yasmine xox
I ship ignis and aranea. I dont know how to explain how this ship seems so simple and beautiful. And i can really see them together, i love both of them. Headcanon for them confessing their feelings for each other?
(what’s the ship name anyways? i’ve seen ignea and highspecs ? does the fandom have an agreement or is it as split as lunoct/noctuna/noctluna? lol)
And oh gosh yes, they are really really growing on me. Like at first it was casual, and now I’m like “Wow. …Wow. Just wow. Look at them. They are perfect.” Like, Ignis just treats her so differently? He very clearly has a thing for her? And she gets so shy whenever he’s gentlemanly towards her? Like she tries to brush it off “I’m so badass yup hahah I know” but she’s actually like “OH MY GOD HE SAID A NICE THING ABOUT ME SHIT SHIT SHIT HOW DO YOU SHOW YOU LIKE A BOY DO YOU PUNCH HIM I THINK YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO PUNCH HIM WAIT NO BAD” like oh my god she’s such a romantic but doesn’t want to show it, I love them holy shit yup just typing this out cemented it oops I have another ship now dammit XD
Ignis Confessing -He tries to be a bit subtle and poetic about it. Takes her out on a date, pays her lots of compliments anytime an opportunity presents itself (like, not just out of nowhere “Wow you’re beautiful” but she might say something about work and he’d compliment her on how she handles it, her strength, her leadership, that sorta thing)
-She’s so shy about his compliments though that it makes her clam up a little lol oops awkward well at least he figures that out and stops laying it on so thick. Ahahahah oh gosh, glasses fogged up, taking them off and cleaning them with a slightly embarrassed expression as he mumbles that he’s been trying to show his appreciation and affection for her, not to embarrass her
-She’s probably inwardly a flustered blubbering mess and outwardly she’s like “Eh? Huh? Oh, uh, y-yeah, uh, that’s cool, uhm, me too?” lol
-Like these two Cool Calm and Collected adults just cannot keep that up around each other when they’re first really addressing this thing (they get themselves together quick enough afterwards though, promise, it’s just when they first actually address these romantic feelings that they cannot keep from being flustered)
Aranea Confessing -Probably she tries to be all cool about it and actually get him to do the confessing, like asking him why he’s invited her (and only her) over for dinner 3 times already this week lol
-By the time she wants to confess, she’s probably over the blubbering part and like “Yup ok I’m not being silly I actually love that guy let’s do this” because she’d probably be critical of herself for getting so blushy over him so she can play it cool
-She probably adores the kind of trope seen often in fanfic (ahem i’m guilty of it myself lol), the kind of… Sparring together and getting turned on, and she tries to arrange a way to confess to him using that. And by “confess” I mean “make out with” (and then confess. in bed. after sex. like ‘yeah i want this as a permanent arrangement what do you think?’ “I wouldn’t be here if I felt otherwise.”)
I was the PTSD ask, and it's okay! I completely understand. :) Thank you anyway! Well let me ask something else then. Hm... how would the RFA + saeran & v react to MC being a vigilante? (Like batman! Or the girls from the show sweet/vicious!)
Yay! I was hoping you’d send another request! Ah~ thank goodness. You’re so sweet, anon. Hopefully this makes up for not writing your last request!
Yoosung: -You’re like a hero from his comic books -So when he finds out, his mind is just -!!!!!! -Will ask for your autograph -Yoosung seriously looks up to you -Full on fanboying sometimes over how cool you look fighting crime -He’ll want you to tell him stories about your encounters -Heart eyes throughout your whole story -That doesn’t mean he doesn’t worry -But he doesn’t want to get too much in the way, so he just checks up on you often
Zen: -Oh my god that’s so badass -wait -OH MY GOD THAT’S SO DANGEROUS -Worried every time you’re out doing your job -And when you’re late returning back home -*Worry intensifies* -You can obviously handle yourself and you’ve proven that, but this boy will still feel like it’s his job to protect you -Zen being Zen, he is very protective over things he loves -So you can bet that you’ll catch him following you around a couple times when you’re on duty -Will keep his phone with him at all times during rehearsals in case of emergency but he’s been doing that since you’ve started dating anyway
Jaehee: -Spits her coffee -She’ll fangirl over how amazingly talented you are -Jaehee is a black belt in judo but you’re a superhero like she is so impressed -She wonders what kind of previous training you’ve done and would love to hear about it -Maybe you can teach her a few techniques? Or she could teach you some, perhaps? -Jaehee will swoon everytime she sees how cool you look when you’re all serious and focused on justice and all that -She’s your number one fan
Jumin: -Jumin unlock the fucking door I have crime to fight let me out of your penthouse -He’s first concerned about your safety, but then he sees that you’re more qualified than even his best bodyguards, so he backs off a bit -Jumin gets worried over whether or not what you’re doing is legal, but you calm him down from that as well -Eventually, with lots of convincing, he agrees to not interfere -It’s going to take a while to convince him to not have bodyguards following you around whenever you’re off duty however. He wants to make sure criminal groups don’t target you
Saeyoung: -He found out during his initial background check before you joined the RFA -Holy shit that’s so cool -Calls you Batman, and various other superhero names -He’ll brag about it, unless you keep your identity secret -If that’s the case, he’ll just mention vaguely how much he appreciates people like you -“Wow~ did you hear about that robbery the other day? It’s so incredible that that mysterious hero saved the day~” -He’ll even tease you about it -You’ve seen Maid Seven but NOW get ready for SUPERHERO SPANDEX SEVEN -SaeyouNG PLS
V: -V thinks it’s really admirable -You do important work, and you protect lots of lives -He’s 100% respectful and supportive -He asks if he can tag along to take photos of you, but he’ll understand if you keep your identity secret, plus it wouldn’t be safe etc. -Being the mom he is, he’d make sure you’re prepared before you head out -“Take a jacket. It’s chilly.” -“Where are you going? What’s the street address?” -“Make sure to call me if anything happens.” -Calm down V they’re a professional
Saeran: -What? -He thought you were kidding at first, but the more he thinks about it, the more it makes sense -He knows how advanced your fighting skills are, and has seen it himself, but he never thought you’d tell him you’re like a literal superhero -Gets sad and anxious if you are out really late though -He doesn’t like the fact that it’s so dangerous, but it makes him admire you even more -You’re so brave and strong he can’t help but feel his heart flutter -But he’d never let you know that
I’mma expand on star trek au bc im watching it and i love it and- oh look there are strange alien ppl
So okay, Alexander is the fresh, bright new captain of the U.S.S. Yorktown, inheriting it from Admiral Washington. Aaron Burr is made his first officer, a young half human vulcan who’s mother was a human ambassador on vulcan (and a genius) and whose father is well respected and apart of the vulcan high command. John Laurens is the chief medical officer, a southern doctor who arn away from his rich family to join starfleet after medical school.
Burr, as a vulcan, has learned to control his emotions, using logic and reason as he tries to help guide the headstrong captain. Laurens is very human, aggressive and passionate, immediately not trusting Burr bc of his lack of any emotion. He feeds into Alexander’s passion and strong emotions. Alexander literally thinks they’re both the bees knees, and is adorably oblivious to their arguing and annoyance at each other.
But in the end, when it comes to their Captain, they always work together bc they both literally love Alex so much. And if they start feeling something a bit towards each other? Well,
And then we have the Schuyler sisters. Angelica entered starfleet first as a communications officer and is awesome and will take literally 0% shit from anyone (THAT GRACEFUL BITCHSLAP THO). Then there’s Eliza who becomes a doctor and works beside Laurens in sick bay (maaaybe she might have a small crush on Mr. Burr? Maaaybe) And lil’ Peggy who works the console and is so excited to be there!
Can you imagine tho? The Schuyler sisters all slaying in they’re cadet uniforms at the academy!? Eliza ripping apart every prissy ass medical student w/ her amazing intelligence!? Not taking any shit from the men on board the Yorktown? Peggy having the con and having no chill when up against enemies vessels? Angelica being asked to translate and insulting the enemy ship and no one else can understand and they wonder why they open fired.
Then there’s Hercules Mulligan, engineer who is literally married to the ship and has a knowledge of literally every alcohol in the known universe ((and keeps a store of it)) And Peggy shadows him for a year, learning abt being an engineer ((that’s super cute)) Like literal genius Hercules Mulligan!
And Lafayette, senior helmsman, with a love of plants and swordfighting, as well as being bros w/ Peggy. He also has 0 chill when made temporary captain and Peggy goads him on off screen. ((Honestly frickin’ Lafayette crazily running through the halls, attacking ppl with a sword like from that one episode))
ALSO imagine Maria Reynolds as chief security officer!! Oh my god, that’d be so frickin’ badass, she has a small lil’ group of elite security ppl and she doesn’t take any shit from anyone! She’s the one that trains all new officers and it’s brutal and awesome!
@simply-a-storyteller and I were also thinking, Thomas Jefferson as a Romulan captain, and James Madison as his first officer! (bc Romulans are closely related to vulcans and the whole salt squad thing!!!) Also Theodosia as T’pring!
And KG3 as the superhuman evil asshole they find on a thousand year old ship who thinks he’s better than everyone else and has a small group of also superhuman assholes (the british) and Sam Seabury as the naive ship’s historian who falls in love w/ him and goes with him to the planet.
OH MY FUCKING GOD WHEN WILL GIRLS REALIZE THAT THEY DO NOT NEED PERMISSION FROM BOYS TO HOLD THE TITLE OF ATTRACTIVE LIKE FUCK MAN YOU ARE A FIERCE QUEEN AND THE OPINIONS OF LITTLE FUCKBOYS ARE IRRELEVANT TO YOUR FUCKING BADASSNESS
