Happy (early) holidays! Since American Thanksgiving is coming up, I figured I would go ahead and ask if anyone is interested in doing hummelholidays again!
For those of you who don’t know, we simply release prompts for every day of December and you can write fic, make art, edit photos, etc. based on the theme. The only catch is that it is for either noncanon Kurt relationships (popular ones have included Kadam and Kurtbastian) or Kurt-centric/family based works. There is no sign up or obligations or anything; you just fill the prompts you want to and enjoy some new holiday-themed works!
We could easily do the same prompts we’ve had in the past years. Let me know if there’s any interest and please reblog to help spread the word! And apologies in advance for using the ship tags.
as promised….italian-american pidge hcs by your certified italian-american dude since pidge was confirmed to be italian
here we go:
-she calls marinara sauce gravy/red gravy. this confuses the fuck outta everyone, especially hunk. she’ll try cooking with him and be like “throw some more oregano in the gravy” and he’ll be like “?????”
-pizza is life. i hc now that she grew up in new jersey/new york (home of most italian-americans), so she’s used to BIG thin slices of pizza covered in olive oil. one time she went down south and almost DIED at how small and shitty the slices of pizza were.
-when people piss her off, she gives them the italian salute, but they don’t know what it means
-she can’t speak italian but she’ll curse/make exclamations in it (“madonna!”)
-she once brought lance and hunk to her cousin’s wedding as her platonic “dates” and the whole time the three of them just watched as all the little old ladies took tubbaware out of their purses and started stealing food out of the buffet line
-also, she took lance and hunk to her grandma’s house and the whole time she insisted on feeding them. idk, i think this is pretty universal across all grandma’s, but italian grandma’s will either passive aggressively force you to eat or they will curse you out/make you feel bad until you eat.
-matt tried to be an italian stallion (think the white tank top, greased back black hair, gold chain with a cross on the end, mama’s boy type of dude) because they had a cousin that fit the stereotype but he wasn’t stocky enough and didn’t have the attitude. pidge thought it was hilarious.
-now that she’s in space she would kill for those jelly sandwich cookies
-and also penne vodka
-and also a good cannoli
-she once fought a guy over the importance of cannolis (this is something i have done)
-christmas is the biggest holiday (feast of the seven fishes, baby)
um hi I really like the oil paintings Carl Barks did so I thought hey!!! lets??? spend too much time on this monstrosity???? (also that’s Fortuna on the left and Lady Luck on the right ‘cause eyyyy myths)
My Pathfinder and her new Angaran family.
I’m seriously so in love with Jaal and his family (and the Angara in general…) ‘cause like… You were all alone in this new galaxy. Your mom and dad are both dead, and your sibling was in a coma and… Jaal and his family are just like “You’re part of our family now. :)” and it’s just so warm and loving. Gives me warm fuzzies.
View in High Res, pls! I put some little details into the male Angaran’s faces you might not be able to see too well otherwise.
so i’ve been thinking a lot about lance and his siblings
lance would drive his lil sister to and from school when their mama had to work. he’d wait outside the gates for her and they’d hold hands or he’d give her a piggy back to the car as he asked about her day
sometimes she even made drawings for him to look at as they walked
the two (lance and his younger sis) go to the beach together A LOT
lance was actually the one who taught her to surf
they spend time building sandcastles, surfing and looking for shells they can take home
lance and his older sister are actually the ones who bicker the most, all of it playful teasing until lance gets too big for his boots and things get… interesting.
it normally ends with his sister getting him in a headlock and him tapping out though
lance is the only one his lil sister likes to comb her hair. she’s got real big curls and lance is the only one soft enough to be able to battle them. he’ll braid back her hair before they go swimming and it’s a job trying to get her to sit still
lance always has to guide her back down and he’s laughing as he’s all “woah, hey, you’re gonna mess up all my hard work!”
to which she giggles and settles for at least a minute
their whole family has movie nights where they just all pile in the living room and watch a couple movies. lance’s older siblings are all spread across the couch with his parents, while he and his younger sister are piled on the floor with pillows and blankets
it’s not too long before his older siblings get into an argument about the movie choice, to which lance and his lil sister just both respond “SHUT UPPPPPP” because they’re both so invested in the movie
lance gets a pillow thrown at the back of his head for that
lance is always trying to prove himself to his older siblings and that often leads to him getting himself into very sticky situations
he once got his head stuck in a metal fence because his brother dared him
one time he needed to go to the emergency room because he bet his siblings he could chug a bottle of hot sauce (he could not)
he tried backflipping off the trampoline once and ended up fracturing his ankles
he once got way too cocky while trying to get rid of a spider in the house and just straight up grabbed it in his hand. as you can imagine, his face was instant regret and he fainted
he and his older brother wrestle a lot too
they both commentate the fight as it’s happening
“and firstborn mcclain lands a fatal blow!! baby mcclain is down!! i don’t think he’s gonna get back up!!”
yes. lance is baby mcclain.
his siblings all tease lance for being a mamas boy, but it’s funny because they all love their mama so damn much.
lance welcomes this title honestly
he stands there with a wide smile as he replies all “yeah. and what?”
mama is smiling in the background while his siblings smirk and mumble something along the lines of “kissass”
i really did everything i could to avoid doing this but
i’m a lesbian who was kicked out as a teenager and pretty much completely disowned – i’m 25 now and i’ve been poor as dirt (last year was the first year my income was above the poverty line) the last 7+ years. i worked two jobs, went to school and worked full time, and moved across the country twice with little to no help from my family. even now i make minimum wage with tips. i’m not well off – just as responsible as i can be.
now that i’m 25 i can finally go to school since i don’t have to report my “family” income. based on my own income, pell grants will cover almost all of my school expenses, and working part time + student loans should cover most of my living expenses.
however, i’m going to lose my health insurance in 2 months. i’m nearly out of dental already. i don’t know what i can do yet, because my financial aid for school has been put through the verification process for months and months and lots of paperwork and i don’t know what my period grant is exactly or what kind of student loans i’m applicable for. on top of that, i have to pay $1,130.00 to my University out of pocket because financial aid didn’t come through in time.
i’ve never worked less than full time – in the decade i’ve spent much of it working 2 jobs – but now i’m going less than part time and my job i’ve worked for years won’t even give me so much as health insurance. i’m very scared and i feel like i’m jumping off of a cliff.
i do have credit cards, but with no health insurance and only a part time job i need them for emergencies only. $1k+ is enough to stress my credit out horribly, and i have absolutely no fallback plan. i’m an adult survivor of an abusive homophobic family taking a huge risk by finally going to college like i’ve always wanted to.
i know this is the best thing for me, and i know that my life will improve so much with a degree – and eventually my JD – and i know that i have the potential to do this. i think i might be able to survive on my student loans. but right now… i have absolutely no information. right now im going in blind. and i know this is the best choice for me, but i don’t want to end up struggling or to have everything fall through because of my low income. i make minimum wage (+ tips) and even full time i don’t even know if i can afford books. my father doesn’t speak to me and my mom has nothing she can give me.
my paypal is email@example.com and my squarecash is $wishbyspirit
i’m a lesbian survivor who has lived through hell
and is finally trying to do what i know is best for me, but it’s terrifying. everything helps. this is the biggest risk i’ve ever taken in my life, and i’ve sworn to myself that i’ll never be homeless or struggling to eat again, because those struggles have been a reality for years of my life.
thank you all for everything in advance. i appreciate all of the help i can get.
So I have this head cannon based on my own family that the bat kids have a habit of saying “my brother”/”my sister” like everyone knows who they’re talking about. People who know about the whole batclan can usually guess which bro/sis based on the context, but everyone else just assumes there’s only one brother and one sister.
Imagine Tim starting YJ and being super secretive about his identity, so no one knows he’s Tim Drake with 7.5 billion Wayne siblings. Which leads to the hilarious assumption that Tim just has one brother, and who does. So. Much
Grew up in a circus, and by circus he means the streets, and by streets he means a palace in Dubai. Born in Gotham but also in the middle east but he’s Cuban and black? Can’t drive a car, but can drive a motorcycle? Is married, but also ‘partners’ with some guy named roy and is also like twelve? Died?? But apparently he got better??
And his sister is a mute computer genius who’s both super dramatic, and pretty stoic, faked her own death once?? and is an Asian ginger, and might be the child of Catwoman and Batman??
People would think he’s making it up, except he says these things so casually and with such a straight face that there’s no way it’s a joke.
Until one day some brave soul is like “Hey Robin, how many siblings do you have again?”
“Well, legally I have three brothers and two sisters. But Duke’s adoption papers are pending, and Babs might as well be my sister. Stephanie pretty much lives with us too, so I suppose that brings the total up to four brothers and four sisters.”
Which solves one problem, but still doesn’t answer the whole dying? and getting better???
Hello everyone! How are you!? Yesterday i mashup two cute hairs!! Shaved bun from Get to Work and a Bang from Base game!!! I love this hair a lot! This is my second mashup, im happy i learn how to do this x)! And its Base game compatible!!!
Two people who don’t know each other find out that they have inherited the same child: the child’s recently-diseased parents had separate Wills, and they each specified a different person as the child’s legal guardian in the event of their death. The court decides that the two legal guardians (Mom’s Choice and Dad’s Choice) must share custody until further notice. The court also demands that, for the sake of the grieving, recently-orphaned child, they must all live in the same house.
Bonus: whoever get’s married first will be granted full custody of the child.
