I AM AN ABSOLUTE MESS OH GOD THIS IS SO CHEESY BUT I’M NOT EVEN SORRY BECAUSE MY HEART IS FILLED WITH SUCH JOY

DEH Future Headcanons

i was thinking about what all of the DEH characters would pursue as careers after the show, and i’ve compiled a list.

EVAN: ya boy is gonna be a writer. not just any writer, though. a writer of informative children’s books about nature. because 1. children are much easier to interact with and be around than adults, 2. he fricking loves trees and such, so he’d get to research them for his book, 3. the show constantly mentions him being a good writer and loving writing but not necessarily being comfortable expressing that, and nonfiction writing is much less personal and can therefore be less intimidating. boom. perfect.

ZOE: for a while i thought about her being a science professor of some sort (psychology, chemistry, biology), because i think she wants to see the world progress and to help people. but i changed my mind. she’s in the STEM field and fluctuates between wanting to work in engineering or medicine. if she isn’t a therapist, a pediatrician, or an OBGYN, she’s a chemical engineer, who works in medication production or in finding new sustainable energy sources. Dr. Zoe Murphy you betcha

ALANA: this girl! ! she seems like a wonderful debater, like someone who would go into politics/political science. she can argue and is very logical, but she can also connect with people and help them get involved. her, in college, studying and studying for the bar and then slayinggggg. she is a lawyer all the way, and often ponders about the possibility of starting a political campaign.

JARED: idek man, but i feel like he’d go into tech. something STEM related, like Zoe, with a minor in marketing. then he’d turn to something that’s still tech-based but has an edge of creativity. i.e. software developer. he’d create some bizarre app (i.e. angry birds) that just goes Viral

also heidi becomes a paralegal and then a lawyer and maybe mentors alana? i love it. and heidi sends everyone a copy of evan’s book, of course.

State of Ohio: to be an attorney, we need to do a background check with ten years worth of jobs and addresses

Me: okay, cool

Ohio: we also need seven people to fill out a form essentially saying you’re not a serial killer

Me: okay, here are seven people who have all known me for nearly ten years

Ohio: we also need your fingerprints to make sure you’re not secretly a criminal or terrorist

Me: fine, whatever, can I be a lawyer yet?

Ohio: we also need $300 to process all of this information

Me: here are the money orders, NOW can I be an attorney?

Ohio: no, you also need to have a random half hour meeting with a random admitted attorney so they can make sure you have good character

Me: bullshit.

Ohio: you could be a serial killer!

Me: you contacted my previous bosses! That includes multiple attorneys!

Ohio: your meeting is at 1:30

Me:
