Happy Mother’s Day to all the lovely mothers and mothering people out there who take care of us. Mother’s and Father’s day have already been happening elsewhere around the world, so here’s Father’s day too since I like seeing them together. I had loads of fun with this, even though the holidays have a bit of potential to be controversial. My intention was to take a very lighthearted and universal approach in hopes of just reminding everyone to celebrate the sometimes unsung heroes who care about us. You can see some of my process work [here!]


This was supposed to be posted on father’s day (sorry I’m late ;A;) but I was too busy and tired OTL so here it is anyway *n* Is based on a short comic I saw on facebook and the Shadis’ grip xD.

Biological father or not, kaney raised that little bastard (:

*“A Father’s way” plays in the distance xD*

Father's Day is coming up...please be considerate to bloggers and followers who live/lived with abusive father figures and to those who have lost fathers. Please tag Father's Day posts and posts about father figures.

For many of us this holiday is painful enough and every opportunity to avoid the reminder helps. This has been a PSA from someone whose father is deceased. Thank you

Father Daughter Dance

“Are these even politically correct anymore?” Cora asked holding a hot pink flyer in her hand as she and Stiles walked to class. “It’s like yay you have a dad but haha sucks if you don’t.”

Stiles eyed the paper out the corner of his eye. “Would you want to go?” He asked.

Cora snickered and crumpled the paper in her hand. “Would I want to put on a dress and dance with my dad in the school gym like I’m in some eighties movie?” She stopped at the door of her class and raised an eye brow at him.

He heard something in her voice but didn’t say anything about it, he just leaned over and kissed her cheek. “Wanna go out Saturday? We can have a date night.”

“Okay.” She shrugged. “But only because you’re cute." 


After school Stiles rushed to the loft before Cora could get there. "I need a favor.” He said running through the door and almost running right into Derek.

“What do you want Stiles?”

He took a deep breath and got his thoughts together. “There’s a dance on Saturday and…”

Derek shook his head and walked towards the table. “I’m not helping you ask Cora to a dance.”

“I don’t need your help asking her to a dance I need you to take her to the dance.” He spit out before Derek started ignoring him completely.

“What?” He stopped and turned around, giving Stiles the signature Hale look.

“It’s a father-daughter dance. We were talking about it at school today and she acted like she didn’t care but I’ve got pretty good at telling when she’s doesn’t mean what she says.”

Derek looked like he was trying to stop himself from laughing and shook his head. “You want me to take Cora to a school dance that she said she didn’t want to go to?”

Stiles knew it sounded crazy, it was Cora he was talking about and she hates surprises most of the time.“She said she didn’t want to go but I know she does. Look you two don’t talk about the fire and that’s fine. I don’t talk about my mom either but it doesn’t change the fact that I don’t miss her.” He waited for Derek to tell him to get out or punch him in the face but he just nodded and waited for Stiles to continue. “I told Cora we were having a date night on Saturday so she wouldn’t plan anything. Are you going to take her or not?”


Cora paced back and forth in front of the door as she got his voicemail again. “Stiles this is the fourth time I’ve called you and I swear if you stand me up after I’ve put on this ridiculous dress I’m going to….”

Stiles walked through the door dressed in a suit he had in the back of his closet. “Sorry I got hung up…” This was the first time he’d seen her dressed up in something other than jeans and a t-shirt. “You look amazing Cora.” She had on a short simple black dress and her hair pinned away from her face and just enough makeup.

Cora rolled her eyes and tried to hide her smile. “Stop complementing me and lets go.” She grabbed his hand and headed down stairs but stopped when she didn’t see the Jeep. “You rented a town car?”

“Nothing is to good for my lady.” He said opening the door for her. 

She slid in and froze when she saw someone was already inside.“Derek?” Stiles closed the door and walked around to get in the drivers seat. “What the hell is going on? Is my brother going on a date with us?” He was dressed in a suit too and looked just as uncomfortable in it as Cora looked in her heels.

“I am your date Cor.”

She looked back and forth between Derek and Stiles as he pulled away from the loft and then it clicked. “The dance.”

“Look I know I’m not dad but…” Before he could finish Cora leaned over and kissed him on the cheek and laid her head on his shoulder. 

Stiles looked back at her through the rearview mirror and smiled, happy that she wasn’t angry at him. She caught him looking at her and smiled back at him. “I can’t believe you did this.”

“I told you, nothing is to good for my lady. Not even the technicality of a high school dance.” He pulled into the school parking lot by the gym. “Here we are.”

Derek got out first and held the door open as Cora got out. “Give me a sec?” She asked Derek. He nodded and headed towards the gym and she waited for him to get out of ear shot before bending over kiss Stiles. “Thank you for not listening to me.”
