birthday present for jess

A Seasick Crocodile

Summary: After one too many bad setups, Emma thinks the best way to get out of another blind date is to tell her sister-in-law she already has a boyfriend. But when her brother makes the assumption she’s dating Killian Jones, Emma just might need a Christmas miracle to pull it off.

A little birdie told me it’s @nightships birthday today. Hope you like your present, Jess! Thank you for making me pretty things <3

 “So I know you really didn’t like August all that much, but I was thinking–”

“No.” Emma glares across the table at her sister-in-law, trying – and failing – to keep from brandishing her fork like a club. “No more Christmas party blind dates.”

“I know the last few–”

“Seriously? Mary Margaret, he was gay. You set me up with a guy who doesn’t even like women. The one before him turned out to be a skip. The one before him was Ruby’s ex.” Emma ticks them off one at a time on her fingers, her irritation only growing as she relives each horrible date. “So this year, I’m saying no. Absolutely not.”

“What have you got to lose?” Mary Margaret asks, completely undeterred by Emma’s protest.

“I already have a boyfriend!” Emma blurts out, reaching for her glass of wine and taking a large gulp to hide the lie. It’s the only thing she can think of to shut Mary Margaret up, since her brother is sitting uselessly next to his wife with an amused look on his face – amusement she is pleased to note disappears the moment she makes her announcement.

Jesse/Winnie/Hugo headcanons

(All created with @no-upper-limit-to-stupidity)

  • Hugo finds Jesse and Winnie at the fair and they become Squad
  • Both Hugo and Jesse are bi af. 
  • Jesse tells Hugo and Winnie that when they both turn 17, they should drink from the water; and they do. 
  • Say hello to the cutest poly relationship ever (which of course develops over time and isn’t instant)
  • Hugo gets dragged around on adventures with his boyfriend and girlfriend and he totally packs sunscreen (though Jesse reminds them that they don’t need it).
  • Miles and Hugo being really good friends???
  • One time, Hugo gets lost in the Amazon for three days.
  • Hugo is like the embodiment of Murphy’s Law. Like anything that could happen to him will happen to him. During his three days he somehow ended up being revered as a god. He still doesn’t know why and doesn’t know if he wants to find out.
  • When Jesse and Winnie find Hugo, he’s covered in tribal piercings and tattoos (all of which fade, except one).
  • So after they fade, Winnie and Jesse doodle all over Hugo to try and see what stays without actually getting a tattoo with a needle and all. 
  • (Those doodle sessions always end with cuddles and kisses)
  • Hugo turns lowkey punk (like the way Michael Wartella actually looks)
  • However, whenever Hugo opens his mouth, he turns into his total nerd self.
  • Winnie: “This is Hugo. He’s kind of a badass.” Hugo: “Uhm… Did you know that, uh… That Ursa Major is a bear?” And then he totally points out the spot on his arm where he asked Winnie to draw the constellation. He then points to the big dipper and says “that it’s basically the same.” 
  • Hugo also has a huge collection of detective stories that he keeps at Mae and Angus’ house. He only takes three with him when they go on adventures. If he finishes those three, he gets sad and Winnie and Jesse will buy him a new one. 
  • Sherlock Holmes is his favorite, and he has multiple language copies of it. As a birthday present, Winnie and Jesse wrote him his own detective novel.
  • It’s called “Hugo’s Big Case” in which he and his deputy Jesse help find Winnie when she was kidnapped by the man in the yellow suit.
  • When the three of them come out to the others, Miles and Angus hand over five bucks each to Mae. 
  • Angus thought it was just Winnie/Jesse, with a thirdwheeling Hugo. While Miles was like “No, it’s Jesse and Hugo. Trust me.”
  • They’re so sickening sweet that Miles has literally stabbed himself as a joke. 

What kills me in this scene when Jesse gives Walt the watch as a birthday present is that he really only does it because he’s sweet and he deeply loves him. He doesn’t even wait for any “thank you” or any acknowledgement. He leaves right away.

He just wanted to give it and did not expect anything in return.

And that’s so foreign to Walt, who constantly has ulterior motives. And he’s so shocked he doesn’t manage to say anything. So deeply moved and touched, but it’s bittersweet, because at that point Walt knows all the terrible things he’s done to Jesse, all the manipulation he’s inflicted upon him…and that only makes Jesse even sweeter.

You’d think Walt would consider this, would feel remorseful, and I think he does, somewhere in his heart. But his main reaction is using this present, this proof of Jesse’s love and gentleness, as a trophy that shows his domination upon him.

God that’s so awful.


“No matter where I go, they always end up hating me. By people and by them…”

“Not everyone hates you. I know, because I watched you.”

A birthday present for Jess! Thank you for always ruining me with your tags on natsume posts~ Happy Birthday!! ♥

Archery Lesson

This is a birthday present for my friend Jess @willowaus who is a wonderful writer that lets me beta her wonderful stories, and listens to ramblings about my own writing.  

Set some time after 4x18 though the events of 4x16 and definitely not 4x20 did not happen.  Based off a favored scene for another one of Jess and I’s favorite OTPs.  

Caroline looked around the room, taking in the contents of the various displays before looking back over her shoulder at her host.  “I have to say, this is not what I was expecting.”

“You said you were interested in seeing more of my collection love.”

“I meant more like the clothes and jewelry, less the weapons.”  She explained to the hybrid  as she moved farther into the room despite her initial disappointment.  There were so many of them, and all different types; knives, swords, guns, even maces.  “Why do you have all of these anyways?  I would think that the most ‘powerful’ creature in the world wouldn’t have a need for weapons.”

Also consider Jesse helping Genji build confidence to go out in public again. Helping him find nice clothes that he can wear over his new body to give him some privacy from prying eyes. McCree being super supportive of whatever wants to wear; jeans and a tank? Yeah! A sweatshirt even on hot days? Whatever he's comfy with. That cute dress that Genji was eyeing for a while? Well Jesse just found the perfect birthday present for Genji! Not to mention Genji always looks great in kimonos.


Genji in dresses? Hell yeah!!
