creepy cousins

Instead of gross asylum AUs, have you considered disabled!AUs like

A special ed program AU?  If it’s set in a high school, you get to also work with school AUs and not to mention, not all disabled students are in programs that baby them.  There’s even some school districts with programs explicitly for students with a wide variety of disabilities!  (I should know, I attended one from age 11 to age 17.)   Adaptive technology is awesome and really fun to geek out on.

Support group AU?  Addiction is a disability as well, and having support networks allows both for how you can introduce characters to each other and for how to help people communicate.  Or cause drama.  You’ve seen groups act.

A veterans AU?  People discharged from service, allowing for well, angst and comfort fic as they deal with PTSD and readapting to a world that is far different than what they were used to.  THIS IS CANON FOR MARVEL AND ANY SUPERHERO UNIVERSE.

Special Olympics/Paralympics AU?  Or wheelchair sports.  (They are really neat!)  Come on, sports.  Showers.  Getting to bitch about equipment.  Travel to the events.  And know that with athletes in Special Olympics, ADHD and being autistic do count.  (They are developmental disabilities!) For the love of everything bright and shining, do not go for inspiration porn, it’s disgusting and creepy too. 

Activist AU?  Politics and rallies and standing up for yourself and others, and who knows?  Maybe you’ll get to learn what you can do to help!  Why let the Les Mis fandom have all of the fun?

ALL OF THEM?  Any AU can easily slide disability into the mix, by a simple acknowledgement of a character having anxiety or PTSD or being autistic or deaf or needing a brace or a cane.  If you really can’t decide on a disability, you can provide more than one.  Most of them aren’t mutually exclusive.  Comorbidities are a thing and research is your friiiiiend.

Canon? Disability exists in reality and we’re not all locked up in some institution.  And we’d appreciate it if you remembered that and didn’t try to use us as a vehicle for that sort of creepy thing.  And that goes for the ‘it’s all in their head’ AU too!  YOU HAVE THESE BIG SHINY UNIVERSES, WHY WOULD YOU TRY TO USE MENTAL ILLNESS TO ERASE THEM?!

AND YOU’RE NOT EVEN USING THE DAMN ILLNESSES RIGHT.

What's everybody getting up to for Valentine's Day in the galaxy far, far away? Kylux? Finnrey? Techienician? I want to hear about these great celebrations.

ANON, I’m so glad you sent this, thank you! Yesterday I started this little modern AU Valentine’s Day ficlet and wasn’t sure I’d finish it, and your ask inspired me to finish & post it :33

It’s not the galaxy far, far away version, but it does feature all three of those couples! Happy Valentine’s Dayyyy~~!

I call this: ALWAYS SOMEHOW REHEATING FISH, as it was inspired by the new Girls episode and me laughing at that quote re: meaty near-naked Kylo and his naked partner being awful to their roommate.

Finn smirks as he passes the long line at the flower stand in his building’s lobby. They ran out of red roses around lunchtime and are now selling the dregs to desperate people who didn’t plan as well as he has. He got an email confirmation that the custom bouquet he ordered for Rey arrived at her apartment two hours ago, and her creepy cousin actually responded to his text about placing it in her room. Whether or not Ben actually did so is still uncertain, as it’s hard to predict what he’ll do, regardless of what he says, but Finn has tried to come up with some reason why Ben might want to sabotage Rey’s Valentine’s Day flowers, and he hasn’t landed on anything yet. As obnoxious as Ben can be, he does seem to genuinely care about Rey. Finn would love it if this affection for Rey would translate into Ben maybe attempting to find his own place and letting Rey live her life without her codependent cousin haunting her steps, but he’s not going to hold his breath waiting for that to happen. Not yet, anyway: eventually he’s going to ask Rey to marry him. Maybe next year. At that point, Ben will hopefully take his cue to move out.  

If Rey says yes, that is.

It’s a gray and rainy Tuesday, just a little after six o’clock in the evening. Finn thinks about texting Rey, though she likely won’t have time to look at her phone until her shift ends in five hours. She’s a waitress at Jakku, one of the trendiest restaurants in town, and today will be hell at work for her: the restaurant is fully booked, packed with couples who will expect her to cater to them and their special day while she juggles ten other tables who all demand the same level of doting attention in exchange for Jakku’s insane prices. Rey has been dreading Valentine’s Day all week for this reason, just like she dreaded it last year, when she and Finn were still only friends. Last year all he did was send her supportive messages when she griped about the work day she faced and then about how gruelling it was. He’d offered to bring her some ice cream at midnight, when she finally got home, but she’d said she just wanted to sleep.

This year they’re not just dating but getting pretty serious after seven giddy months. Rey has given him a key to her apartment, where he sleeps more often than not, though he has his own place and it’s pretty nice, definitely quieter. But Ben is not there, and if Ben wasn’t inventing nonstop excuses to need Rey’s “energy” nearby in order to stay sane, he wouldn’t be Ben.

Ok but what if Marinette and Félix were like really good friends because like they both have fashion sense and whatnot. People wouldn’t think that they’re good friends because they fight during class but then Félix and Marinette would hang out after school like
“Marinette, I don’t even want to know where you got these pictures and my brother’s schedule. Just ask him out and stop being creepy.”
“Only when you ask out my cousin.”
“Your cousin is creepy.”
“Then we have nothing to discuss.”

(They would wingman each other, but Marinette appreciates Félix’s help more than he appreciates hers…)

In my mind, the most amazing and bittersweet ending of game of thornes is seeing Winterfell with starks children like it was at the beginning of the story. You know who shares that same dream as me? Jon snow and Sansa Stark: 

“ I might someday hold a son of my own blood in my arms. A son was something Jon Snow had never dared dream of, since he decided to live his life on the Wall. I could name him Robb…” - jon snow 

  If I give him sons, he may come to love me. She would name them Eddard and Brandon and Rickon and Robb, and raise them all to be as valiant as Ser Loras.And to hate Lannisters, too. In Sansa’s dreams, her children looked just like the brothers she had lost. Sometimes there was even a girl who looked like Arya.” - Sansa stark 

Now not only is amazing how they have the same dream of re-do Winterfell like it was before everything fell apart. But who is missing from that fantasy?  yes its eachothers,but why? Because they never had seen oneanother as family! People think if  jon  is doing  “incesty” love   it will be with Arya because in the books he thinks about her always but i think thats the reason why they could never work. They both see eachother as siblings the transiction to lovers would be a stab in the back for the readers: a CERSEI AND JAMIE but as stark! The shame, all the familiar love that makes the starks so amazing would be tainted. As Arya NEVER called Jon half-brother, never makes that distinction, but Sansa did. Sansa never saw jon as her real family. Its like Ned never calling Jon son (R+L=J). Its in the words GRRM use that the story is being told. 

Jon and sansa never thought about one another in a sibling way, never saw another as family. The reader wuold be bitter about them for sure ( who is happy about incest?) but it would not ruin a relationship that never was written in the first place.

Now dont get me wrong jon and sansa would NOT get married for love. It will be for duty, and really who in the books have more of a sense of duty then jon and sansa? Jon was willing to never have children and a wife for the night watch. Sansa talks about her duty as a wife since the first book ( I was meant to have his babies….or what if i dont give him a son?) 

Arya (but Daenerys too) never have this type of thoughts. They are passionate, in the long run ( or even at  first) they would get resentful and bitter about a political union with someone they dont love ( in the show you can see how dany is afraid of this). 


Sansa grew up with her mother sense of duty and family ( everyone and some can see the similiarity between sansa and her mother). She has learned that passion and love can take time, so a political marriage for her would not be that hard. But lets talk about the real issue people have with jon/sansa: 

 Jon would never marry is cousin,because incest is not is way:

 what if he finds the truth about his mother before meeting Daenerys. Then they meet and he is attracted to her? jon fighting is attraction for his aunt. And lets be real GRRM would not lose the opportunity of jon being conflicted about his love for his hot aunt . So Jon falls for Dany and they have the most romantic love, but both are heroes, they have to fight the others, so they cant both survive .i know people think Jon will be king, Dany is queen and Tyron will be the hand, but come on! this is Game of thrones and GRRM promised a bittersweet ending not the dinsey type of ending. If dany and jon happens the reader would had to swallow Jon and Sansa  ( because GRRM could always say: why jon with is aunt is romantic but jon with his cousin is creepy?, and he will be right. The incest thing wouldnt mean anything after jon and dany. The icky factor would be less shocking ( jon fell in love with his aunt, why cant he marry for duty is cousin?).  This just to say:this is all speculation but if by the end of season 7 sansa stays alive then this could very well happen.  The last book is called “ A promise of Spring” , the hope of happiness and if it not jon and sansa as cat and ned 2.0 married for duty but falling in love in time, i dont know what is.

I repeat: 

This is all speculation, wishfull thinking really. But How amazing and poetic would it be if the last scene of game of thrones is Sansa and Jon looking down at their children playing, and Jon saying to Sansa: “ a raven came this morning, a white raven, Spring is here” and they smile to oneanother.

avatarsymbolismsblogs  asked:

5 headcanons each for Aang switching places with Korra and Korra switching places with Aang (with a focus on Korra and Zuko's relationship maybe?)?

I see what you did there.

1. Korra had such a hard time as an Air Nomad.  Everybody, including her knew from the time she was a little girl that she was the Avatar, because the only element she couldn’t bend was air.  The other kids never wanted to play with her, because all of the games they wanted to play, she couldn’t play without airbending, and all of the games she could play, they were convinced she had an unfair advantage in because she was the Avatar.  She spent a lot of time with her teacher feeling lonely and frustrated, and like she would rather be anything except the Avatar.

The one good thing about being the Avatar is, the temple elders decided to give her a sky bison early, in the hopes that taking care of one of the original airbenders will teach her to airbend.  It didn’t, but having Appa was great anyway.  Still, the temple elders kept her close to the temple instead of letting her train in the other elements, and she ran off to the Southern Water Tribe to finally learn waterbending.  This was when she got lost in the storm and frozen.

2. Korra wakes up to the beautiful face of a Water Tribe girl, and falls head over heels in love with her, though she doesn’t recognize those feelings for what they are until much later.  Anyway, since she isn’t running from being the Avatar, and in fact went south to finally train, she doesn’t try to keep the whole Avatar thing secret.  In fact, to prove she’s the Avatar, she waterbends and firebends right there for Katara.  First Sokka tries to attack her for firebending, then Katara drops the news that there are no waterbenders at the South Pole except her.

3. Instead of surrendering peacefully to Zuko to protect the village, Korra tries to fight him.  He hauls her in all of her twelve-year-old, kicking, biting, fire-and-waterbending glory onto his ship in something like horror at what he got himself into.  He won’t admit it, but he’s almost relieved when she escapes.

He does not destroy the village.  There is no need.  He has what he came for, right?

4. Pakku is just about willing to make an exception in the gender role nonsense to train the Avatar, but he’s not training her friend too.  That’s it, no girls allowed.  Okay Pakku.  Katara fights him, while Korra sits back and wonders why she didn’t think of that, and falls deeper in love.

5. Korra’s love life, which is probably important I guess: Her crush on Katara is utterly unreciprocated, leading to terrible heartbreak.  Then, she falls in love with a newly redeemed Zuko, as they dance together under rainbow dragon fire.  He, uh, really doesn’t see her that way, and also he has a girlfriend, and… (Uncle, help).  Then, Zuko and Mai break up, and Korra thinks here’s her shot, right?  No, Zuko turns her down flat.  Eventually, Zuko starts dating Katara, and Korra, well Korra starts spending time with Mai, and one thing leads to another, and when Korra’s a little older, they start dating.

6. Aang the waterbender doesn’t find out he’s the avatar until he’s almost sixteen, and trying to explain this one firebending move that he saw a performer do at the last festival to his creepy cousins, when poof, he makes fire.  Of course his uncle tries to take over, and his parents call in the order of the White Lotus, and it’s off to the Earth Kingdom to learn earthbending, until his uncle kidnaps him to unlock the spirit portals.

7. He is not a fully trained Avatar.  He has waterbending and earthbending, and he almost dies, and loses his connection to all of his past lives, and he barely defeats Vaatu, and he is such a failure, and there’s some guy running around Republic City taking away people’s bending, and wow, why is he the Avatar?

8. The next element in the cycle is supposed to be fire, but suddenly the world is full of airbenders, none of whom have any better idea how to do this airbending thing than he does.  Since Avatar Korra never had any children, these are the first airbenders since her death almost seventeen years ago.  Aang goes to help find them all and train with them, and then rescue them from the Earth Queen, and then he gets mixed up with the Red Lotus and Amon and Tarlok, and everybody tried to kill him or take away his bending, or make him go into the Avatar state and then kill him, and he almost died again, and he went into the Avatar state and almost killed three people (all of whom are awful, but still) and two of them escaped and no one can find them, and now he can’t walk on his own and he hurts and feels sick all the time.

9. He runs.  He runs and he runs and he runs until he just can’t run anymore, and no matter how far he runs, he is left empty, afraid, and alone.

10. When he faces Kuvira, he does it with nothing but the knowledge that he has done this before.  He has faced death, and at this point, he figures he will have to keep facing death.  When he is able to talk her down, he is so relieved, and so happy, and this, this is how we wishes every conflict could go.

anonymous asked:

I think I'll tell my creepy story too. My cousin used to live in this very old house where someone was allegedly electrocuted for a crime they didn't do, I think it was treason or telling confidential government secrets, something like that (God knows why she still bought it after finding out)and apparently when they were electrocuted it took so much power all the power in the house died out and every year on that same day the power would die out and nothing electric would work that whole day.

O_O I agree, I would never buy a house after knowing all that history. But that’s a pretty crazy story! It’s creepy to think stuff like that actually happens! 

Best to leave it alone, I say~

Night Swimming - iDubbbz Imagine

You and Ian escaped to the roof of this hotel about half an hour ago, stolen goods (a pack of fancy crackers and a bottle of questionable wine) in hand, hellbent on escaping the wedding the two of you have been suffering through for the better part of the evening. It’s some friend of a friend that’s getting married, and you honestly aren’t sure how either of you got an invite to this thing. But it’s open bar, and they promised to feed you, so you and Ian thought you should come for the hell of it.
