dad's basement

Someone said to me that it would be hard for Strickler to be a part of Jim’s family since Jim already has a kind of father figure in Blinky. 

To which I say that Jim should be to dads what Steven Universe is to moms. Just keep collecting more and more as the show progresses. He already has a sizable collection including but not limited to:

Spider bookworm dad

Big mossy pacifist dad

Avocado knife dad

Ghost dad

Goat dad

Angry lives-in-your-basement dad


“Thank you for stopping me from shooting him.”

“You did that on your own.”

Favorite Childhood Memories
  • Slytherin: Catching fireflies with the neighborhood kids, crunching on leaves as they walk home from school, eating s'mores in the summer, swinging as high as possible on the swings, singing along to the radio in the car, playing in the sprinkler, watching/helping mom and dad repaint the basement, looking for billboards in the car, sitting with dad while he watched sports
  • Gryffindor: Making drawings on the windows with their breath, watching mom fix dinner while they sat on the counter, making snowflakes in the winter out of coffee filters, finding bugs in the garden, pretending the floor was lava, playing tag at recess, climbing trees (even the small ones), watergun fights, coloring outside the lines, blwing really big bubbles with bubblegum
  • Ravenclaw: Sitting on granparents' laps while being read to, blowing bubbles out their bedroom window, their dad teaching them how to rollerblade, waking up early on weekends to sneak snacks and watch cartoons, staying up at night under the covers playing with their toys, exploring neighbors' yards, building snowforts with friends, planting a garden with mom
  • Hufflepuff: Sitting on the back porch eating a popcisle as the juice dripped down their hand because they were watching the sunset, building snow people with siblings, riding bikes around the neighborhood with the other kids, looking for rocks in the creek, playing with pets, sneaking extra Halloween candy, going apple/pumpkin picking, school carnivals, temporary tattoos
