So I swear to fucking god, I LOVE Avatar: the Last Airbender but… Agh! They did the most cliche thing in serpents pass! So they’re trying to get the pregnant lady, her husband and her apparently mute sister/aunt/friend/whatever make it across serpents pass Abe to Ba Sing Se. And they make it across serpents pass and the pregnant lady goes into labor. Katara delivers the baby like a fucking badass and the parents are trying to decide on a name for the little girl.
They’re fucking going on about: “I want our daughter’s name to be unique, I want it to mean something”
Oh my fucking god, please don’t name your daughter Hope! That’s literally the highlight of post apocalyptic cliches. Little girl is born right after the apocalypse! Let’s name her Hope to remind us to be hopeful for the next 20 years as we raise our daughter in a fucking wasteland! Do you know how many little girls will be named Hope in the first year of the apocalypse?!?!
And I’m thinking “no, they’re not going to do that! That’s not how they name their characters. They don’t use western names for their characters”
But then Aang goes on this stupid fucking speech about how he’s going through a hard time since Appa went missing and how their newborn daughter gave him hope. So what do they fucking do?! They name her Hope!!
I get it! There are no western names in this show, so within this universe Hope would be new and unusual but as far as a writing-story-line perspective goes, no matter how unusual your characters’ names are, it’s still going to be cliche if you name a baby Hope during a time of serious conflict and turmoil. Agh!
Tl,dr: Avatar: the Last Airbender did a cliche thing and I’m pissed about it. Don’t name your characters Hope if you’re trying to be meaningful somehow. It doesn’t work
What would being Draco's older sister and dating Fred Weasley involve?
At the start of the relationship, you think about keeping it secret, worried about your family’s reaction
It’s a lot of sneaking around to meet up in empty classrooms and ignoring each other when other people are around
By the time your relationship is ‘serious’, you realise that fear of your how your family will react shouldn’t get in the way of something that makes you so happy. You also don’t want Fred thinking you’re ashamed of him when that’s the furthest thing from true
You kiss Fred in the middle of the Great Hall during breakfast. You know you’ve done the right thing when he beams at you before kissing you again
Your parents aren’t particularly thrilled (understatement of the year) about your choice of boyfriend when they find out
Mrs Weasley knows how your parents will be acting, and goes out of her way to include you and make you feel like part of the family. You nearly cry when she sends you your very own Weasley jumper, even if you do still prefer wearing Fred’s
Draco acts like a brat. He’s either ignoring you or making snide comments
You try and keep the peace between your brother and the Weasleys, but it doesn’t always go to plan.
Fred does his best to avoid Draco for your benefit
But sometimes Draco is straight up asking to be cursed; going out of his way to be a dick, calling people Mudbloods and insulting Fred’s family
Ron’s the slowest of Fred’s sibling to accept you, mainly because of how well-acquainted he is with your brother
You move out of Malfoy Manor as soon as you realise your dad is working for Voldemort again. There’s never any question of where to go: you pick up your stuff and head straight to Fred’s. He welcomes you with open arms
Fred survives the war. Why? I don’t know, he just does
Your mother is the first to approach you after the war is over and everyone has had time to start recovering. The woman lied to Voldemort for her son, she’s not going to let anything stand between her and her children anymore
Draco actually apologises to you for everything. It’s a good start to rebuilding your sibling relationship
