I know you don't do pregnancy but could you possibly write something involving actual dad Shiro?
haha i had a hard time with this one???
Shiro would be quite a responsible father. He’s
the type to remember where his child’s need would be—like milk, candies, and
toys. He’s pretty organized about them and would put them all neatly in a
single container, just so it would be easier for him to find.
He would always, always find the time to play
with his child. It doesn’t matter whether it’s late at night or that he still
has something important to do tomorrow. If his child asks him to play with
them, he would always make time to do so.
He would try to be strict with them, though he
would fail to do so. The moment he sees them making puppy eyes at him, he would
sigh in resignation before nodding his head—a bit reluctantly for dramatic effect.
He could never bring himself to get mad at his
child. Never. Once, they hid his shoes in the bottom of the trash can before he’s
due for work, and he spent an hour and a half trying to find them. That lead to
him being late, of course, and the moment he finds out that it’s his child’s
doing, he could only laugh and ruffle their hair, telling them that they did a
great job hiding his things.
Most of the time, he couldn’t find it in him to
wave away his child’s request. Oh, they want him to accompany them for a walk
at 8 in the evening? Sure thing. Oh, they want him to sing them a lullaby
because they couldn’t sleep? Definitely.
TLDR: Shiro loves his child very much,
and he would absolutely do anything just so he could make them happy.
IN the last catdad drabble, what if they take the baby back and it turns out that Gabe or Jack is the father?
In some ways, this would change very little, and in others it’d have some significant impacts.
The way it doesn’t change things much is in how they feel about her. To be honest, they’ve both already fallen in love with this tiny girl by the time they get home with her. But there’s really no way they can keep her.
Admittedly, there could be some good reasons for them to try. Perhaps most importantly, the whole cat-person thing is more than cosmetic. At some point I want to get into how it affects them psychologically, and the little girl is going to have that to deal with just the same as they have.
But they’re far too busy to be able to do justice to raising a special needs child. Also, their own natures render them less than stable in some certain specific ways. Then there’s the fact that they’d be putting her at risk. They’re already targeted by Overwatch’s enemies, and after finding that lab, they have reason to believe that some things from their past might be coming back to haunt them at some point.
What they’ll end up doing is settling the little one with a family they trust. I need to think this through: who it is, how connected they are to Overwatch, how much Jack and Gabe visit her. They really want to, and I adore the idea of them basically becoming her adoptive catdad uncles, but it’s also possible they feel it’s safer to let her and her new family cut ties and lose themselves. After all, she could become a target too, independent of them.
The way in which it would make a huge difference is because if she were their kid specifically, they’d need to be asking themselves some very uncomfortable questions about just how much of a coincidence that is, or if these scientists are deliberately calling them out somehow.
Posting a picture of your child does not make you a bad mom. People are a fucking trip. My little girl is in my profile picture. You share pictures of your loved ones to show affection. Your son is handsome and anyone getting off on a photo of a mother posts of her child needs to seek professional help. You seem like an amazing mother to me. Fuck everyone! 💚
i was fairly lucky in that my mother had a talent with children (unless she was angry, but)… i see parents on airplanes just stick a phone in front of their kids and ignore the child. you don’t need to always be paying attention, that’s unreasonable, but just… talk with them! face to face! play with them, play with physical things, teach them things! be interested in your child!
Damn, how gay is Louis that he can't really be single and that they have to go back in 2014 and redo it? I'm insulted on everyone's behalf, but mildly curious about how Louis, and by extension Eleanor, is going to actually pull this off.🤷🏾♀️
Don’t you know, my child needed two beards and a baby to hide the rainbows coming out of his ass…but he still wanted to flaunt his triangle tattoo!
Because I love this child and he needs more love, especially his relationship with Yuuri ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
While Phichit is an incredibly friendly lovable cinnamon roll, he won’t stand for anything threatening his best friend Yuuri, even if the threat happens to be someone Yuuri loves. Yuuri clearly adores the Victor he knows now (just as much as he idolized the distant figure in the past), but Phichit won’t forget how much Victor hurt Yuuri in the past, unintentional or not.
I headcanon that on top of being a skilled figure skater, Phichit is an academic genius who skipped grades and entered college in Detroit super early where he met Yuuri, which explains their long acquaintance despite the age difference. He is very, VERY protective of Yuuri. I’ll put up a more detailed headcanon post later (and if there’s interest, possibly prequel comic of pre-YOI anime Detroit college days).
One thing that really gets me about today’s society is how emotional/psychological child abuse is normalized and even celebrated.
I’ve noticed a phenomenon of parents getting together and talking about how they’re such a Mean Mom or Mean Dad and how they’re raising their children to be respectful. They talk about destroying their children’s possessions, isolating them, humiliating them, and/or publicly shaming them.
And when these people hear about, say, a parent smashing a kid’s phone for not cleaning their room or burning their possessions or filming a punishment or embarrassing moment and putting it up on social media, they commend the parents for “teaching the kids a lesson”.
Why the fuck do we, as a society, think this is okay?
It doesn’t teach kids valuable life lessons, it teaches them to be scared of repercussions. It’s bullying and child abuse and for some reason, people think that’s commendable.
Whenever I hear people saying “haha I bet that 14 year old learned a lesson”, it instantly makes me suspicious of them. I will instantly think of you as either a potential child abuser or a child abuse enabler.
As a survivor of psychological abuse, people dismissing this behavior as “harmless life lessons” makes me wonder if it really was abuse. If I deserved it. If I really deserved to have my pet’s life threatened because I was a liar.
It’s not cute. It’s not “good parenting”. It’s intimidating, shaming, and traumatizing your child into compliance.
“The odd thing is, Harry,“ he said softly, "that it may not have meant you at all. Sibyll’s prophecy could have applied to two wizard boys, both born at the end of July that year, both of whom had parents in the Order of the Phoenix, both sets of parents having narrowly escaped Voldemort three times. One, of course, was you. The other was Neville Longbottom.”
