my best attempt at a masterlist of every chengsey moment in trk
ch. 6: henry calling gansey “richard-man” adj;fdkd
the slightly disturbing fact that henry told gansey his tailgate was open because he didn’t want to draw attention to the fact that there was a little girl curled up in the cargo space of the camaro….. like buddy what if gans was kidnapping her. now youre an accomplice.
ch. 12: “henry cheng stood before him, all hair and smile, his eyes intense.”
basically the mere fact that henry notices that gansey is having a panic attack/ptsd flashback and goes to help him in the middle of a crowd
“once, you got me coffee,” henry said. “when i was losing my mind. consider the favor returned.”
one of the things that helps gansey come out of his attack is making eye contact with henry
henry saying “there he is” when gansey calms down
ch 17: “both henry and gansey were kings in their respective territories”
gansey thinking about litchfield house: “to dine in fairyland was to be forced to stay there forever or to pine for it once you left” literally what the fuck gansey
“yo, yo, dick gansey” im so embarrassed for henry
“[litchfield house] did not look remotely like a place that might host a party. it looked like a place old ladies might go to die and remain undiscovered until the neighbors noticed a strange smell. it was utterly at odds with what gansey knew of henry.” ok i lied, that’s barely chengsey but i love it anyway.
gansey reflecting that he understands henry (more than blue does)
gansey reminding blue that henry’s car is electric bc he wants her to like his boyfriend
henry is fine with blue being at the toga party even though no other casual acquaintances are invited, just bc gansey vouches for her
ch. 29: ok honestly………. the whole chapter
BUT for the sake of thoroughness… henry calling gansey “junior”
henry: “i tucked in the children [after you left] and read them stories but they kept asking after you” and gansey LAUGHS
gansey is cagey about explaining why they left and henry lets it pass
flirting via knowledge of what happened in 1751
GANSEY 👏 KNEW 👏 THAT 👏 HENRY 👏 WAS 👏 RIGHT 👏 BY 👏 THE 👏 ZING 👏 OF 👏 FEELING 👏 IN 👏 HIS 👏 HEART 👏
and yes this is bc henry knows he’s looking for a “test of mettle”
“that feeling of being known. not in a superficial way, but in something deeper and truer.”
gansey: “what is my prize if i pass?” 👀
“the prize is your honor, mr. gansey.” doubly known. triply known.
gansey doesn’t know how to feel about being “so accurately pegged” 👀
“am i being kidnapped now?” oh, gansey. you shameless flirt (with bad timing)
“this is ganseylike too, yes?” which part? “secrets.”
gansey is “prepared to deploy” any combination of his fake, polite responses to heavy moments, but he understands that henry doesn’t need or want this from him, so he can just respond as his real, genuine self
both deeply traumatized at the age of 10?? is that kind of symmetry romantic?? (no but im including it)
“do you trust me?” [gansey’s dramatic ass thinks about how he intuitively knows who to trust] “yes.”
THEY HOLD HANDS!!!!!!! for a second when henry scares him with robobee but still!!!!
ch. 30: “richardman” again
henry telling gansey to breathe while literally cupping gansey’s hands between his
“be afraid and happy” the quote that defined a generation
henry saying “there he is” when gansey starts breathing again 💖
more touching, then “easy, mr. gansey”
“robobee, find great hair”
henry matching gansey’s dramatic ass like “i think we have to decide if we trust each other or not… i think this is the moment in our young friendship”
“are you saying your secrets are to my secrets as an automobile is to a carbonated beverage?” henry !!!!!!
“magical artifacts, bro”
henry: “are you collapsing? are you fine? i thought we were conversing”
gansey reflecting that henry is the closest thing to a soul-twin he’s ever found
“Get. Your. Number.” HENRY ASDJFKD;F
gansey noticing “henry’s wickedly cut eyebrows”
this part made me lose my shit….. gansey thinks that, even after all of the actual magic he’s seen, henry cheng is just as magical as everything else he’s found on this journey god help me
“because i’m overfull on secrets and underfed on friends” henry :’(
again, gansey bein gay…… thinking “henry’s eyes were lively and ferocious”
ch. 37: “[henry] had no real way to explain how he felt about trying to befriend richard gansey…” his love for richard is too big for words guyz
“LONGING TO BECOME FRIENDS”
when henry’s being kidnapped by mr. gray (also fuck you sir, how dare you hurt my son’s shoulder), he begs robobee to “tell someone who can make this stop,” and robobee alerts gansey, who calls mr. gray immediately !!!!
ch. 38: when he meets henry and mr. gray, gansey’s like, “this wasn’t the next step i wanted to take in our friendship”… ok gans tell us about the ‘next step’ you had been imagining then
when gansey confirms that they’re officially friends now: “now something else lit henry’s smile. it was genuine and pleased but also something more, and there were not quite words for it.” im gonna take a wild guess and say one word you might use would be ‘lust.’
ch. 49: gansey thinking of henry’s “be afraid and happy” advice when he needs strength to go after glendower…. im crying youre crying we’re all crying
ch. 51: robobee is basically a lovebee that tells henry when gansey needs him
henry using second person “thee” to refer to gansey 👀
henry lets gansey drive his car!!!
“i’ll watch for cops. go, go, go.” they’re like thelma and louise
henry lets gans drive his car along the steep side of a mountain with no guard rail! he must have been so scared but he let him do it!!!
gansey: “however do you drive?” henry: “i don’t. you do.”
“HE HAD TO TRUST HENRY”
henry reacting to gansey’s driving… “yay. also, woo.”
ch. 53: henry making a b&e joke but definitely also a sex joke that gansey will probably be up thinking about at 3 am for every night the rest of his life: “let us enter, dick, as i’ve already broken”
JEONG!!!!!! “we are friends at once, we would instantly do what friends would do for each other. not just pals. friends. blood brothers. you just feel it. we instead of you and me. that’s jeong.”
henry suggests splitting up and doesn’t question gans turning off his flashlight, because he’s PERFECT for gansey (me? dramatic? its more likely than you think)
ch. 54: gansey doesn’t ask henry to come with him once they find the tunnel bc he remembers that henry’s biggest fear is a hole in the ground (am i crying?? yes.)
henry literally giving gansey the shirt off his back!!!! (the shirt he’ll die in ok…. is it weird that i find it romantic that gansey will die wearing henry’s sweater)
ch. 55: GANSEY THINKING OF HTE ONCOMING SWARM AS “SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL” BECAUSE OF HENRY’S ADVICE
henry literally trying to reenact the princess bride with gansey like what the fuck?? “we have such few old treasures left; it would be so careless to let them get destroyed.”
gansey: “please. please help me.” henry: “i thought you’d never ask.” wtf why do they do this to me
ch. 58: henry tells gansey to pull over after they’re leaving glendower, and says, “stop driving. i know you need to. you’ve needed to since we left. get. out.” so gansey can get out of the car and cry 💖
ch. 59: henry casually calling gansey “president” as they’re binding adam’s hands???
ch. 64: while gansey’s official last words before dying are “it’ll be okay. i’m ready. blue, kiss me,” his SECOND-TO-LAST words are “thanks for everything, henry. you’re a prince among men.” like hwat hte hell dude….. are you even aware that youre in love..
ch. 66: henry is the one who demands they find a way to bring gansey back!!!

baku squad has movie nights every thursday when they live in the dorms. this happens in the common room and the people involved are bakugou, kirishima, sero, kaminari, and ashido (sometimes jirou but only when she decides that a movie is worth watching)
they take turns picking out a movie each week
bakugou always picks out an all might movie (he demands they watch them in chronological order because that’s how things are done)
kirishima switches between action and animated movies because both of them are great and he still knows all the words to mulan so
kaminari only chooses trendy movies he thinks will impress jirou (he doesn’t ask her what movies she likes because he’s a stupid??)
ashido loves romantic comedies or cheesy horror flicks (she’s seen nightmare on elm street 7 times)
sero is a troll and picks meme movies like sharknado and sausage party and everyone regrets inviting him to movie night (if he suggests a movie too cringy then the default is mean girls)
bonus: the one time jirou picked out a movie it was of the horror genre and this is what happened- kirishima might have cried, bakugou squeezed kiri’s arm so hard his quirk activated, sero actually passed out, kaminari definitely peed his pants more than once, ashido’s shrieks echoed through the dorms, and jirou laughed her ass off
iida (bless his soul) barged in at once point after one of ashido’s particularly loud screams to see if they were okay, but he happened to appear the same instant that the movie had a jump scare and bakugou was so scared he reflexively blew up kirishima (kiri praised the lord that his quirk was already activated)
directly after the jirou incident, baku squad had to sleep in the common room because they were too scared to go back to their rooms (and jirou had her movie picking privileges revoked)
my dash is kinda dead rn and i dont blame you all considering the season finale (i mean i changed my url bc of it and became a literal walking pillar of salt), but it’s still a bit suprising since it’s jibcon… also i need to follow more blogs in general (though I might go on semi-hiatus in summer), so maybe reblog if you post: loads of cas, jenmish, castiel, misha, cas, cockles, deancas, my son cas, destiel, castiel, oh and i almost forgot about cas… so i can check out your blog… please? clean theme and tagging system is a big plus :) maybe if mutuals could spread the word, that would be super nice ♥
HADES: my love, there is no shortage of things i have given you. i have procured all of the best things from the land above for you. i have offered you gifts, shrines – all these and more. and yet still, still, the sadness dwells within you. what can i do? what can i give?
PERSEPHONE: nothing that you have, shall i ever want. everything you offer, i can only turn away.
HADES: i would give you anything – anything at all.
PERSEPHONE: anything i so desire?
HADES: i would cause realms to shake at your will. i would overturn the highest of kingdoms, bring ruin and destruction to the greatest of men.
PERSEPHONE: i do not want that.
HADES, on his knees: i would beg, plead; i would prostrate myself – right here, in front of you! i would cut out my heart, pull the darkness from the abyss – all for you.
HADES: i would relinquish my power, worship you at your feet.
PERSEPHONE: would you?
HADES: i would.
PERSEPHONE, staring down at him: would you give me this power? this never ending power? would you call me as i am: the Queen at your side? would you? would you?
HADES: i would, i would, i would.
PERSEPHONE: this is how a goddess rules. what you would have me be is a plaything for you to enjoy. who am i to you?
