Concept: an RPG about keeping a great evil sealed away, except the great evil in question is basically a cross between Cthulhu and Dilbert’s pointy-haired boss, so the containment procedure is less about maintaining magical seals and more about falsifying paperwork to convince him that he already rules the world and his bidding is being done, when in reality he just rules the one castle and his minions spend most of their time slacking off and playing table tennis.
(Your party members could be the great evil’s Dark Generals, who are really just a bunch of local villagers in dungeonpunk cosplay. One of the subplots involves the fact that the current Master of Destruction is a single mom and is having scheduling conflicts with her daughter’s extracurriculars, culminating in a very unconventional Take Your Daughter To Work Day.)
“The latest WikiLeaks release has sent a shockwave through the intelligence community, especially in the upper echelons of SHIELD, whose tools for hacking into smart devices were among the information obtained by the group. Joining us today to discuss the impact of this leak on the intelligence community is the former Director of SHIELD herself, Peggy Carter. Ms. Carter, thank you for coming on the show today.”
Peggy smiled slightly into the webcam and adjusted the lapel of her blazer, praying her home office looked tidier on camera than it actually was. “Thank you for your invitation.”
“What are your thoughts regarding the Vault 7 leaks?”
Peggy shrugged. “It’s nothing truly earth-shattering. A lot of the operating systems referenced in the files are obsolete and have since been updated, and the Weeping Angel hack has been presented at security conferences previously. Much of this information is just a confirmation of what was widely assumed–that is, intelligence agencies have the capability to hack into a person’s smart devices. It’s certainly not good for SHIELD to be compromised this way, but the comparison to Snowden’s NSA leaks are certainly inaccurate.”
“And what do you make of Assange’s statement that he will provide assistance to tech companies to patch the bugs mentioned in the Vault 7 files?” The newscaster let out a stifled chuckle. “Ma’am, I believe one of your children just walked in.”
As if on cue, Peggy felt a tug on her sleeve. She placed a hand on her elder daughter’s head and tried to regain her train of thought. “You’re certainly seeing caution from Silicon Valley. They are understandably suspicious of Assange’s motives, given–”
There was a more insistent tug on Peggy’s sleeve, and she looked down to see her daughter Sarah grinning at her, holding a toy in each hand with her glasses slightly askew.
“Not now, darling. Mummy’s working.” Sarah opened her mouth, no doubt to deliver a the most devastating retort a three-year-old could conjure. “No, Sarah. Go find your father.”
Peggy turned back to the camera. “I’m terribly sorry. As I was saying, given that Wikileaks has a history of releasing individuals’ personal information and Assange’s apparent ties with Russia–”
There was a loud crash behind Peggy, and she turned her head to see Eleanor in her walker, bumping into her bookshelves and precariously stacked piles of paper. Steve slid into the room right after her, banging his shoulder on the office door. She looked heavenward as Steve hustled their girls out of the room, one hand clutching the back of Sarah’s jumper, the other practically lifting Eleanor’s walker off the floor.
“My apologies,” Peggy said with an embarrassed grin as Sarah jabbered at Steve in the background about how she got to play in Mum’s office all the time and he was being so unfair and she left her Bucky Bear behind.
“Anyway, with Wikileaks’ reputation–” She was once again interrupted, this time by a loud shriek from Eleanor. Peggy managed to tamp down her wince, but out of the corner of her eye, she saw Steve kneeling in the doorway. He reached for the door handle and missed, almost toppling to the floor. His second try was successful, and he closed the door just as Sarah started yelling to be heard over Eleanor’s babbling.
Peggy sighed and shook her head. “I’m so sorry. As I was saying–can you repeat your question please?”
Later that night, Peggy found herself scrolling through her Twitter mentions. She probably shouldn’t have been surprised that the video went viral, but it was still supremely unnerving to have more internet presence in a given day than her famous, superhero husband.
She reached a tweet that made her stop short. “Steve,” she gasped, “how did they guess that I was wearing pajama bottoms during the interview? I made sure not to move my chair at all!”
single dad aus make me soooo soft but listen ,,,,, can u plz do a single dad au for wonho-- I am in love with him. Love, Your Biggest Stan <3 P.S. ily <3
i finally thought of a cute plot for this so here u go hehe other versions: hyungwon
wonho has a daughter who he absolUTELY adores
she’s already starting the first grade and wonho literally threw a party for her and invited everyone and their grandmothers and cried when he realized at the end of it that his lil sunflower was going to SCHOOL and he wouldn’t be able to see her for half the day
and kihyun had to hold like three boxes of napkins on his lap while wonho mumbled about how she’s his life,,,,his angel,,,,his sTARS AND UNiVERSE
and hyungwon was like bro it’s school she’s going to have fun and make friends
and wonho is like but sHES MINE,,,,she’s my babY,,,, and everyone was like oh no here he goes again
minhyuk somewhere: can you imagine how bad he’s going to be when she goes off to college????
wonho: dONT EVEN SAY THAT WORD AROUND ME
but yes,,,wonho has never in his life been upset with her,,,,he coddles and loves her more than anything in the world
and it’s amazing you see him out grocery shopping making faces and singing to her while she sits in the cart and like every single parent in town is super heart eyes at wonho because like,,,,,,,look at him
but wonho only cares about his kid,,,,,,,,,,like that’s it,,,,,,,,she’s the only one that matters
and you,,,,,,,think it’s pretty cute because you work with wonho and his enTIRE desk is covered in photos of his daughter
but,,,you don’t have a kid of your own and when the office decides to honor ‘bring your kid to work day’ you’re kind of,,,,,,,,,stuck
and you can’t believe it but as the office bustles with the noise of children and worried parents
you walk in,,,,,,,,,,,,,,holding your cat
and your co-workers laugh because aH your cat is your kid??? and you’re like “kinda??? i mean she’s cute,,,,but she’s not as fun????”
and your cat is lazily resting on your desk,,,,completely oblivious to the fact that you’re sTRESSED your boss might be mad about you brining a pet and not a person
but then you notice,,,,a small hand
and that hand is rubbing your kitty’s belly and you’re like,,,,wait
pushing your chair out a bit you see a small girl on her tippy-toes,,,reaching out to play with the fur of your cat
and usually,,,your cat is ok with all things BUT belly rubs
yet this small hand doesn’t bother her at all
and you’re like “hi!! whats your name?” the girl mumbles it,,,obviously more interested in your cat than you
and you’re looking around to see if any co-workers that her parents are nearby but everyone looks preoccupied with their children
and you’re like “whose your mommy or daddy?”
sniffling she makes a motion to the desk opposite yours,,,,you blink and look at her again and realize she’s wonhos,,,,,,,,,,,,,all those pictures of her on his desk should have given that away pretty easily
and you’re like “do you wanna pet the kitty’s head too - she likes that the most?”
eagerly nodding you pat your lap and the girl climbs up and sits comfortably,,hands going out to play with your snoozing cats ears
a couple of minutes later,,,as you’re using one hand to type and the other to keep the girl safe in your lap wonho comes back holding a plate with cookies and other kids snacks
smiling he finds you with his daughter and he’s like “there she is- should have known she’d go for the cat.”
you laugh and go “if i were her, i would also go for the cat.”
wonho pulls up a chair and tries to get his daughter to take a bite of the cookie,,,but she’s still lost in petting your cat
and wonho pouts and goes “she’s given up her father for your pet,,,” you grin and shake your head
for a while you two sit like that,,,, wonho’s daughter looks like she’s yours with how happy she looks in your lap
at some point even leaning back against your arms and watching you finish something on the computer
wonho,,,,cautiously watches but at the same time,,,,,feels perfectly at ease with his daughter in your hands
and every now and then you chat about this or that
and suddenly wonho asks,,,,,,,would you ever want kids?
you hesitate but nod,,,,you make a joke about how the cat is great and all but kids are cuter,,,,,in your opinion
not seeing the small smile on wonho’s face you go back to your work as his daughter slowly falls asleep
by the time the work day is over,,,she’s been napping for a good hour and your arm is numb from where you’re holding her but you’re content as ever
and wonho wakes her up gently only to hoist her into his arms so she can sleep again
you,,,,well you take your cat in your arms and as you and wonho are leaving the building
he stops and asks if you’d ever like to come over sometime and play with his daughter again
you grin and motion to the cat in your arms and you’re like “im assuming she’d want me to show up with this one as well?”
wonho laughs and you feel your heart skip a beat,,,,because it’s a laugh that’s so,,,,,,,,,,,,sweet
he agrees but before fishing his phone out of his pocket for your number he adds
“im not just asking you for the cat, my daughter would love to see her again but i,,,,,,,,,,id like to spend more time with you too.”
the words make your knees melt and you’re worried you might be blushing like some middleschooler that you hide your head by looking down
but when you exchange numbers, wonho waving as he turns to leave with his daughter
you can’t help but lift your cat up,,,,her lazily opening her eyes to watch you and you go “i,,,,,,,,think you got me a date!”
all you get is a meow in reply,,,,,,,but,,,,,,you’re too happy to care hehe
Being a single dad and having a job as demanding as Spencer’s was not easy, but when he saw the little smile on his daughter’s face or felt the way her fist would wrap around his finger, it was all worth it.
In which Spencer gets called into work on what is supposed to be his day off, and it’s so last minute that he has to bring his four month old daughter, Harper, with him.
a/n: based off of this request, i’m making this a series of one shots about spencer and harper so this is the first installment. gif credit to toyboxboy.
Spencer’s hand came down to rest upon his baby girl’s head, he cradled Harper in his arms and as always was overwhelmed with joy and love. She had finally fallen asleep after hours of crying and she now looked peaceful– seemed as though a bottle had done the trick.
Spencer felt as though he was way in over his head since he was a single dad but he was already great at it and had at least some faith in himself. He was off for a few days and could handle it at the moment to get himself together.
Spencer’s phone rang, the shrill sound taking Harper from her peaceful sleep and immediately causing her to burst into tears. He closed his eyes and took a deep breath as he silently cursed whoever was calling for waking up his baby girl, he was just as tired as she was after a night of not much sleep.
