but idk i'm too tired to be creative

3

Got too many Dad-headcanons and not enough Mom-ones so I’m gonna blatantly make some stuff up about random background characters (that could get proven wrong soon in the new movie :’3)

I could use some Help with NAMES tho, names tend to be a big creative block for me idk why

Young Mom Club of Pallet - aka Delia has friends and a social life that isn’t just turning down unwanted suitors lol

Nice Hair Orange Dress:

  • a couple years younger than Delia
  • she and Delia are Good Buds that help each other with their small businesses - -Delia doesn’t run a whole sit down restaurant establishment like in the novels but her cooking is good enough she has pretty good thing selling bento-boxes outta her home and occasionally doing some catering around town. OrngeDress helps out as another pair of hands in the kitchen when Delia needs it (usually for when she’s cooking for events) -OrngeDress owns and runs a textile shop/small-town-boutique/tailoring service, We know Delia makes Ash’s (and her own?) clothes and this is where she gets the fabric, and they swap pattern ideas sometimes, and Delia can sew well enough to help out whenever OrngeDress is the one that’s swamped with orders
  • Mom to lil pigtail-flowershirt-tambourine girl! -OS!Ash can have trouble getting along w/ kids his own age and also be kinda mean to girls, but he also tries to be a bit nicer/patient w/ kids that are younger than him. He also kinda lives for attention and lil kids are easy to impress, so while growing up I can see him getting a kick outta telling her somewhat …embellished stories of stuff he’s done recently and she actually buys it and thinks he’s just the coolest person ever, instead of calling BS like most everyone else around him would whenever he starts talking big, so of course he keeps doing that whenever he’s supposed to be ‘in charge’ whenever their mom’s are busy w/ something together, so he probably doesn’t realize the extent but by the time he’s leaving town she’s like his OG FAN and probably still gets unreasonably excited whenever he happens to get himself on tv

Brown Hair Purple V-Neck:

  • Older than Delia by a handful of years (6?) but still fun enough to be friends w/ Delia and OrngeDress
  • Mom to: Gary! (check that front fringe her hair has?) and mysterious-masked-man from this other HC post
  • Mysterious Masked Man (and Gary’s older sister? maybe she exists in this universe but) is from a previous marriage and also are old enough to not be home much. -This also means that technically the older sibs are not Oaks, and despite being the youngest of his siblings Gary is still the First-Born-son/heir of that line and all the pressures that come w/ that
  • Really helped Delia w/ new-mom-things since she also had a kid very close in age but also the experience w/ doing this stuff before
  • Shorter than Delia even in heels - cementing my HC that as adults Gary ends up shorter than Ash hahaha
  • slight hippie new-agey vibes tbh
  • going w/ her family history of psychics, she makes a lil extra income telling fortunes and selling home-made jewelry that supposedly doubles as various sort of charms (Gary doesn’t believe they do anything At All, but he’s almost always wearing a pendant hmmmm) her “business” is pretty low-key word of mouth sort of thing she just has a rep in town as the person to go to for advice on things, or talk about recent dreams/nightmares they had or w/e, some people treat her almost like a life coach?
  • She wasn’t seen prominently in the crowd giving Gary his send off, because before the day he made it known that he’s an ~adult~ now and didn’t want mom hugs in front of the whole town - she ended up giving him a hard time about that, teasing him a bit by fussing making sure his send off from the house itself was ~regal~ enough for him then, …and that’s why he ended up being the second-to-last person to actually get out to the lab to pick a starter :’3
  • While Gary had a short phase of being a bit of a snot, his relationship w/ his mom really isn’t bad. She’s pretty chill and understands his hang-ups and reasons for wanting to distance himself a bit from her side of the family (at least publicly) and he still cares for her and tries to visit home when he can, it’s alright

Luke mumbling, ‘When do I get a mothers day?!’ with his chin in his hand as he lays on his stomach beside you, other hand resting against your magically growing bump and you stare blankly at him, his eyes just watching the spot where mini hemmo is growing. after you haven’t answered in too long he looks up at you, your brow furrowed as if you’re still trying to decide whether it was a serious question and finally you speak slowly, 'fathers day?’ and he stares back at you for a second, unblinking before he cracks a sheepish grin and says, 'oh. right.’ and it takes everything in you to stifle your laughter as he pouts up at you and mumbles, 'i must have sympathy pregnancy brain.’
