except not really


Also, I was trying to get back into writing with dialogue practice last night. All I got is Artorius doing his dumb bird metaphor with Sorey and Mikleo, and…

Why do you think birds fly?

Sorey: Well, that’s because all animals have to adapt to their environment to survive, right? And many birds are just built for flight – they have wings, streamlined bodies, feathers, and even hollow bones! These are all designs that naturally allow birds to soar high above in the skies.

Artorius: Uh–

Mikleo: Right. And it isn’t just for survival either; some birds are predators and flying helps them hunt prey more efficiently.

Artorius: No, that’s not what I mean–

Sorey: Yeah! It’s also sort of a misconception to say all birds can fly. They might look like they’re built for it, but some birds – like pengyons – can’t fly at all, but are good at catching prey in the water.

Mikleo: Indeed. So, I think the question we should be asking is: why do birds even have wings? What first made them evolve and develop these wings so that they could take flight or swim better in water?

Sorey: Birds are amazing, aren’t they Mikleo? I’d rather be a bat though. Bats can fly and use sonar to find their way in the dark – that’s like, double cool!

Mikleo: Of course you would. You’re the weird one here, after all.

Sorey: Hey, birds of a feather flock together….

Artorius: Can you two nerds stop ruining my metaphor already?

There are few things I want on a visceral level more than Dean being allowed to use the grenade launcher by season's end.

And kiss a boy. On screen. Text. Not subtext. And by boy I clearly mean Cas.

Hamilton on Tumblr
  • Alexander: Runs a huge social justice blog. Focuses a lot on the economy. People are convinced that either he has a queue or there are multiple people running the blog, because so much gets posted there at such a wide range of times. But no, that really is just Alexander up at 5:30 am posting massive rants about communication barriers. Sometimes he posts selfies or long posts about how great his friends are.
  • Angelica: another social justice blogger. She focuses mainly on feminism and her blog is super accessible and neat. She and Alexander started talking when she tore one of his posts apart. Both of them expected to hate each other, but pretty soon they were constantly emailing each other and helping edit each other's posts.
  • Eliza: Runs a super cute mostly aesthetic blog. Sometimes does guest posts for Angelica's blog. Angelica introduced her to Alexander and the two started talking over Skype. When they met up after realizing they live in the same city, Eliza posted ALL the pictures.
  • Peggy: really big Marvel fandom blog. Everyone thinks she's lying about Peggy being her real name. Also writes guest posts for Angelica's blog.
  • Lafayette: so many selfies. once uploaded a video of himself ranting about the government while he was hella drunk and it got a bazillion notes because zomg hot guy with a French accent <3333. He's pretty okay with that. Now he uploads a lot of videos about social injustice in hopes that people will watch for the sexy and learn something while they're at it.
  • Laurens: Runs a TL;DR version of Alexander's blog. Alex was so excited about it when he found out and immediately added a link to the blog in his sidebar. Also has a personal blog where he kinda posts/reblogs whatever strikes his fancy (mostly social justice with a strong focus on racial equality). Whenever he's drunk and having crush feelings about Hamilton he inevitably accidentally posts them to the TL;DR blog, where Alex pretends not to have seen them but secretly screencaps them and saves them to a special folder so he can reread them whenever he wants.
  • Hercules Mulligan: runs a fashion blog. Offers a lot of advice on dressing well on a budget and finding clothes that flatter you. Is also somehow friends with half tumblr's programming team and warns people about updates.
  • Phillip Hamilton and Theodosia Burr: Alexander and Aaron get into a passive aggressive war over who can post the cutest picture of their child so finally Eliza's like "Fine, we'll get a separate blog for this" so from the age of like six months there's a blog where their parents post pictures and stories about them. It has so many followers and both of them are so embarrassed about it when they grow up.
  • Aaron Burr: runs a blog where he talks about current events and politics. Has developed something of a reputation for being unbiased and accurate. He and Alexander do genuinely respect each other but their rivalry is legendary. A decent amount of their followers are only there for the sass.
  • King George: anti-sj blog obvs
  • Washington: head of some sort of small non-profit organization, doesn't post much about himself but makes sure to keep the blog active. Everyone thinks his organization is super fantastic and Hamilton is so excited when Washington approaches him about helping run the organization's social media accounts.
  • Jefferson: Almost as many selfies as Lafayette. Also writes music and posts samples on his blog. He and Hamilton get into what can only be described as flame wars.
