But like, imagine Dream Daddy omegaverse AU. Where like, all of the dads are Alphas (maybe Damien’s a Beta) and are all just kind of chilling. But then your Dadsona shows up, the first Omega in like forever at the cul-de-sac and all of a sudden the Dads are trying to impress you.
-Brian would be fairly competitive with the other dads in order to win your affection, often one upping them in things and showing off parenting skills.
-Craig and you have known each other long enough that you two would just chill out and talk, with a little minor flirting from Craig.(maybe even showing off muscles)
-Mat would attempt to serenade you, but would be super shy about it, maybe a concert date so that he could be near you and ‘protect’ you from other Alphas.
-Hugo would try to win you over with his knowledge and ways of parenting, even offering to lend you a hand or two with things if you helped him out.
-Joseph would ask you to help out with some events to lure you in, even try to seduce you if it comes down to it. In the end he would just stay with Mary and leave you be for the others.
-Damien would try to win you over with poetry and lovely bouquets of flowers, wanting you to feel like a Prince or someone of high class when around him.
-Robert would pretend not to care when you first meet, though would try and out the moves on you at the bar. Going on dates with him would show that he actually cares about the omega class and wants you safe.
-Mary is the Alpha female of the cul-de-sac and constantly watches the shenanigans that go down with the alphas trying to win your affection.
-Amanda is a Beta female and enjoys poking fun at you for now being the 'Desired Omega’.
Alex Hirsch's words at the "Animation Game Changers" panel, CTN Expo 2016
<b>Hirsch:</b> [...] I mean, it's so amazing to be at this panel right now, cause it's like: "Oh, let's interview the giants [Butch Hartman, Craig McCracken, Lauren Faust], and now let's interview the ants standing on their shoulders [himself and Rebecca Sugar]". Like, the reason I knew at school that making a show was something you could do was because when I was in high school I was watching shows like Powerpuff Girls, Dexter's Lab, Fairly Odd Parents, Invader Zim, whatever-- name it... and all of these were people who, you know, not that long ago had also been students, who then pitched something and who made it. So they had cut with a machette, you know, the path through the jungle, and it was there.<p/><b></b> And the weird thing to me when I was at college was that nobody-- most of the people I was friends with, they didn't care. I was like "guys, there's a path, through this dark jungle, to running your own show!" and they were like [funny voice] "yeah, but I wanna design a prop for Pixar."<p/><b></b> [laughter]<p/><b></b> And like, they didn't think of it as something cool, as if...<p/><b>Tony Bancroft:</b> 'cuz it was easier, is that why?<p/><b>Hirsch:</b> I mean, it still-- there's a bit of that persp-- I think people think that Feature[ film]s are prestigious and that TV is, I mean, you know. Just look at... Moana's got the main room and it's, like-- you guys could be there, listening to some guy say like: "Uhh yeah, here's an anecdote about the Rock. I met him. He's nice." WHO CARES?! [motions towards Butch Hartman, Craig McCracken and Lauren Faust] These people shaped Animation History!<p/></p>

“You must be J’s Uncle.” you greeted, standing up from your desk to shake Craig’s hand as he walked in for your meeting. He shook it, eyes quickly taking in your pencil skirt and blouse before you both sat down.
“Call me Craig.” He smiled, smoothing back his hair. You smiled softly, shuffling the papers around in front of you a little bit.
“Craig. I’m sorry, I thought J’s grandmother was going to come in for this meeting.” Craig gave you a dazzling smile before shrugging.
“She was a little busy so she sent me instead. You complaining about me coming instead?” He teased. You felt your cheeks go red as you quickly shook your head.
“No- I mean that’s… I didn’t mean that.” You stuttered, laughing awkwardly as Craig started to laugh. “Sorry.”
“Don’t worry about it. But if you really feel sorry how about you take me out to dinner to make up for it?” He grinned, causing you to get flustered all over again.
Post Craig’s Good Ending. Smashley accepts an invite to a cul-de-sac get together, eager to finally meet the person who’s taken her vacated spot in Craig’s heart. Craig x Dadsona ft. Hugo x Damien. ~2k.
yard was already bustling by the time Ashley pulled up at the end of
the drive. As soon as she climbed out of the car Briar and Hazel came
bounding up to her; each was gabbling over the other as they jumped
into her arms and she tried not to drop them.
woah, girls! Come on, you know I’m not your father, I can’t bench
press you both.”
let go, and she knelt down to pull them into a bear hug. It had
barely been two weeks since she’d seen them last, but they were still
in that stage where they were growing almost before her eyes.
girls, mom’s had a long drive and needs to take advantage of Mr.
Christansen’s excellent grillmanship, but after that you gotta
catch me up on all the gossip, yeah?”
dad and Lucien’s dad have been going on dates!” Hazel burst out.
Clearly she’d been waiting a long time to break that news to someone
hit her sister on the arm, “Shhh, we’re not supposed to know
they’re so obvious about it!” Hazel said indignantly. Ashley
scanned the crowd and spotted Hugo and Damien by the food table. They
were, indeed, cosied up rather more intimately than she was used to
seeing from them.
grinned and ruffled Hazel’s hair, “If they tell me I’ll act
surprised. Maybe you should too, huh? Now where’s your dad and your
sister? I should say hi before I dive into the snacks.”
pointed over the opposite side of the yard where Craig was deep in
conversation with another man. They were laughing about something,
but even from a distance Ashley could see something in Craig’s smile
that went deeper than some funny joke.
pulled her girls in close, “So is that him? Your dad’s new
Dads reacting to Dadsona's parents misgendering him and calling him by his deadname?
((okay I’m ASSUMING this is for someone
who has come out to their parents))
Hugo -he…wants to kill…your parents…
-As someone that works in the education system, he has to deal with a lot of
shitty parents. And he HATES it
-so he gets really, irrationally mad? So mad that he has to excuse himself and
go outside to pace for a minute
-he holds it together in front of them and acts polite but he genuinely wants
to just get you the fuck out of that house
Damien -he chokes on his drink
-and looks incredibly shocked, just…staring at them
-and they’re like “Are you alright, dear??” and he straight up refuses to let
them touch him
-he over-uses your preferred name and pronouns just to really hammer it into
-just…he’s so polite they can’t be mad at him, but he’s all smiles and
Robert -“What the fuck did you just say?”
-he’s gonna make it a big deal
-even if you ask him not to. Sorry, he’s gonna make it a big deal
-just straight up calls your parents shitty to their faces
Joseph -this likeable man? Getting tense and angry?? You bet
-he’s smiling big
-and they’re like “[Dead name], please pass the salt to Joseph”
-and Joseph’s ALREADY SALTY ass says, “I’m sorry, miss/mister, who are you
talking to? There’s no one here by that name”
-and they like laugh and try to brush it off
-and he’s like “I’m genuinely confused, who are you talking to? It’s just me
and [Your name] here”
-keeps going with this until they say the proper name lol
Craig -your parents love Craig. Always have
-and when they deadname you and disrespect you like that
-he just straight up says “Hey, that’s not cool. I know that you guys know
-and if they get offended by that he’s like “?? Sorry, do you guys need a
reminder or whatever?? I’ll send you daily emails if I have to”
-and he’s not kidding
-he corrects them every time. Without
Mat -gets REAL uncomfortable, real fast
-but he plays it off with a laugh and a quick correction like “Oh, you mean
-if they do it on accident, he politely corrects them
-if they do it on purpose he just fucking calls them out
-“Now, I know you’re hearing me when I correct you.”
-will remove you from the situation
-straight up insists you two leave
-he has no idea what to do but he knows it’s not okay
-so after the first few times he interrupts and corrects them
-and his big, intimidating form comes in handy when he’s towering over a
sitting, rude parent
-just…one angry look from Brian and no one can be courageous
Tweek: Ugh my paReNts don’t know how to give gooD adVIce at aLL!

From toilet training through adolescence, [toxic parents] tend to see rebellion or even individual differences as a personal attack. They defend themselves by reinforcing their child’s dependence and helplessness. Instead of promoting healthy development, they unconsciously undermine it, often with the belief that they are acting in their child’s best interest.
Where do you think Craig's reserved personality comes from? I've read many headcanons and metsa, but I'd like to know yours.
Hmm… where it comes from? I think a big part of it is his upbringing. His parent’s marriage issues aside… they love and care about him, but they aren’t really affectionate with him. I mean, there’s a huge difference between knowing that you’re cared about, and feeling like you’re cared about. And while Craig knows that his parents do love him… they don’t really go out of their way to show him. It’s just expected that he knows. I think this is apart of the reason why he’s so affectionate with his guinea pig(s). He wants Stripe to know how much he cares, and he expresses his feelings in a way that he wishes his parents did (is he aware of this? probably not, but that’s okay).
I think another aspect would come from all of his guinea pigs dying. He does love them deeply, really… but it’s apparent that he’s not taking care of them properly. But even if he was… they’re still dying. Whether or not he’s aware of how he’s killing them (which he is, he’s their soul caretaker, thus responsible for their deaths), he continues to get more. Is that because he’s trying to fill the gap in his heart? Is he trying to make up for the last one? There’s so many different reasons why…. but one thing’s for sure. Pet deaths can be traumatic. I had a couple of pet’s die during my childhood and it was my first time handling with death- especially of something close to me that I loved. So the fact that we’re assuming Craig has had to go through the death of three guinea pigs? That’s some real loss right there. That, combined on top of his upbringing that lacks overall affection… being reserved just makes sense.
Why be emotional about people? Why express that emotion? Why get close to anyone? Because in the end, don’t they all go away anyways?
