Jack, Boston Terrier mix (13 y/o), Perry & Greenwich Ave., New York, NY • “He can’t see, but he can sense. He humps Great Danes and Pit Bulls.”

tango is actually super french

like legit, from-metropolitan-france french not québécois

bear with me this headcanon is all just so completely arbitrary he just… Seems French to Me

  • he was born in the paris suburbs and he moved around the paris area a lot throughout childhood
    • seriously he basically lived in every flat in île-de-france at some point
    • saint-denis, boulogne-billancourt, neuilly-sur-seine, issy-les-moulineaux, and like 3 different arrondissements of the actual city u name it tango lived there growing up
    • when he was in like the first year of lycée (american 10th grade) he moved to the south of france like probably aix or montpellier and lived there for a year
    • finally he moved to the US for senior year of high school - brooklyn
      • transferring his school credits was a MEss but somehow it worked out
      • he liked it a lot so he applied to US colleges but he also discovers hockey and falls in love with it so he puts off college to play junior league hockey and thats how he ends up in québec (i’m gonna say gatineau) for 2 years in the Q
      • finally he goes to samwell and from there we know whats up
  • he speaks both french and english natively cause his mom is french and his dad is american and they taught him both from the start
    • his dad is from boston and has a THICK boston accent but everyone else he knew in paris growing up who spoke english was british so his accent in english is actually a weird mix of boston and british
    • he can tune it to be closer to one accent or the other especially if people around him are speaking with one, so like when he’s at samwell his english naturally becomes more bostonian and when he’s around british speakers it becomes naturally more british
    • his french is basically flawless standard metropolitan french which means he spent most of his time in québec just constantly frustrated at their accents and weird slang
    • he doesn’t know a lot of american english slang or american culture at first and that’s part of why he asks so many questions because he grew up speaking relatively british-influenced english in france and not being exposed to the colloquialisms and stuff americans use
    • it doesn’t take him too long to acclimate tho cause he naturally talks a lot and asks lots of questions so he gets his bearings quickly
    • he prefers cursing in french because it just feels like it packs more of a punch, plus curses in english don’t follow grammatical rules very closely so it’s harder for him to use them right
  • he has multiple hard-of-hearing and deaf cousins in france so he knows LSF (french sign language) but he doesn’t ever get to use it once he comes to the US so he’s losing it fast. he’s really passionate about being able to sign though so he’s taking ASL for his language requirement at samwell
    • there’s definitely at least one other member of SMH who knows ASL (*cough* william j poindexter *cough*) and tango eventually knows enough to sign pretty fluently with dex. this obviously devolves quickly into the chirping of teammates without their knowledge
    • the same goes for his french - when bitty finally tells the tadpoles about jack and introduces them to jack, he and jack click instantly because they both speak fluent french
    • tango lowkey doesn’t rlly like jack’s québécois accent of french but jack doesn’t like tango’s weird boston-british english so it’s whatever they just get past it
  • his french customs are alive and well in his heart and sometimes he goes out of his way to make room for them in his life cause they remind him of home
    • he LOVES cooking and he becomes bitty and dex’s kitchen buddy and it helps to diversify the haus’s cuisine by a ton
    • like once a month the whole smh sits down and they have a full formal french meal with all the courses
      • they usually forgo the apéritif because tango doesn’t drink much - he may be french but he also left france before he hit 18, plus he’s kinda timid and doesn’t really party so he only really goes for red wine and only at formal meals
      • he does a really really masterful entrée every time and honestly bitty is probably thinking of opening a restaurant with him in the future
      • the salad course and cheese course are the most different from american meals and so they remind tango the most of home
    • he’s not great at baking but he gives bitty a ton of recipes for french pastries because there are SO MANY and he misses them all
    • he absolutely refuses to go to mcdonalds in the US because the french macdos are SO MUCH BETTER? like US mickey d’s aint got SHIT on the french ones
    • by the time he comes to samwell he’s lived in the US long enough to get used to not doing la bise (the greeting where you kiss each other briefly on both cheeks) but when he first gets there his gay ass sees all those gorgeous guys and he just,,, forgets that it’s not a thing?? and he goes to greet holster and accidentally goes for la bise and holster who being the chill bi bro he is just. goes with it and the rest of the team is like … ????????? but it’s great
    • sometimes this boy is like a giant walking stereotype i swear…,, he just buys a lot of baguettes at murder stop n shop and will just walk around eating them between classes n shit. anyone can spot tango from a mile away cause hes got the baguette. one day he wore a beret just to be Extra and everyone wouldnt stop joking about hon hon hon baguette eiffel tower and homeboy just about snapped
    • this boy is a fashion ICON and he definitely makes 50 Most all 4 years

You remember the stars in Boston. As you sat in your father’s lap and he pointed at those great distant lights poking holes against the void. “That’s the Big Dipper. There’s Orion’s belt.” It seemed only like a blob and a line to you and you remember your dad’s laugh as you told him this. You ask if you could touch them and are disappointed when you’re told they’re really far away. You exclaim that one day you’ll see them up close. You don’t understand the fond shake of his head your father gives you.

You remember little else of Boston. Stars and laughs mixed with solemn looks and loud people and quiet, heavy moments full of things you didn’t quite understand. It’s a blur of memories meshed together in a quilt with colors bleeding into each other and no edges. But that’s childhood to an adult you guess.

Please tell me the story of getting lost and crying in Paul Revere's lap

This has been in my inbox for months. 

So basically when I was little, like second grade little, my family went to Boston. On said trip to Boston we went to this little village that was either on the edge of Boston or just outside of Boston where there were 1700s style houses and everyone dressed in 1700s clothing, like Colonial Williamsburg but in Boston. So in the mix of it all, I somehow got separated from my family. 

Something you should now is that I’ve always been an anxious piece of shit, so being as anxious as I am but even smaller than today, you can imagine that even being separated from my mom for 2.5 seconds was enough to cause a meltdown. On top of that, there were chickens running around this village unsupervised. Don’t ask me why but young me was terrified of chicken, turkeys, and any bird that was the same size as me. The fear was fucking real for young me. But my parents taught me well and they taught me that if I ever got lost I should find the nearest staff member of the place and ask them for help. And Paul Revere happened to be 5 feet away from me.

Another thing is that you should know about me is I am terrified of people in costume. So as soon as he asked me what was wrong, I pretty much malfunctioned, my little brain couldn’t decide what was more terrifying: Being abandoned by my parents and having my eyes pecked out by chickens or talking to a man in a costume. 

So I just started screaming. 

Luckily this apparently wasn’t the first time I’d responded to a stressful situation by just screaming with all the sound my tiny body could produce and my parents had already noticed I was missing and were looking for me and, upon hearing the screaming, they immediately recognized the sound and began to follow it. They found me sitting on the ground in front of a terrified 20 year old guy dressed as Paul Revere who probably never expect this when he got the job. They were able to calm me down and apologize to the poor man. 

I just hope they gave him a really good tip and I gave him a good story. 

Happy 7th Birthday Bree!

It’s my little bean’s birthday today! She was born on May 26, 2010 in an accident litter my uncle’s dog had. Her father was a Boston Terrier named Dobby, and her mother was a  little lapdog mix (Shih Tzu mix maybe) named Ruby.

Some puppy pictures:

Small but fierce:

She managed to get our grumpy old Shih Tzu to tolerate her:

And she grew and grew:

She likes to carry her toys like this:

Eventually a little shit called Haley came along to annoy her:

Truly a dynamic duo:

I call her my little Bumble Bree:

She’s very fashionable:

And a pretty great agility dog who should start trialing this year!:

So a happy birthday to my little dog. Figured it would be nice to share some memories. She’s pretty much the best dog we’ve ever had. A very chill little bean mostly, but will get excited for agility and training. And hey maybe she loathes other dogs with a fiery passion that makes her want to charge them … but she’s still a good egg.
