Imagine: After Peter finally, finally builds the courage to tell him, Erik needs time to get over the world shaking truth that he still has blood family, that he has a son. Peter, having prepared for the worst but not daring to hope for the best, completely gets it and totally gives Erik his space. Of course he does, he had years to come to terms with this, and to Peter that felt like loooonggerr years, so yes, he totally gets that Erik needs his space and time to wrap his tragic mind around Peter being his awesome offspring. To distract himself from impatience and terrible not-awesome thoughts, Peter spends a lot of his time with others. 

Erik notices and observes (he wouldn’t say stalking because that would be weird and he doesn’t need to stalk his own son(!)). Erik notices how Peter interacts with other people in the Mansion/School and how he behaves on his own.

Me and a good friend of mine were talking about it recently and we ended up wondering about FFXV if it had Mermaids. You wouldn’t get a whole lot of mean or harmful ones in it just due to the fact you can’t work your way into the ocean. (Not to say there wouldn’t be at all but it’d be harder since the boys are touching the sea much)
So what about Altissia having mermaids?

The ones who live there already know about them. But the chocobros really don’t.
They ride the Gondola and the people running it just know they are tourists, they haven’t seen these boys before and face it the clothes kind of show they are, and are like “keep hands and arms and everything inside the boat at all times. If you have a wallet with a chain do not let your chain hang out” and so on and they all think it’s just standard safety procedures. But then the people who run it are like “Don’t even sit on the edge just in case of a rare occurrence of a mermaid” and they get that warning for if you’re anywhere near the water don’t even look over and they all just kind of laugh it off because that must be one of those weird legends they tell to the non-locals just to pull their leg.
until it finally happens…

Maybe it was Gladio who was sitting on the side edge, and one suddenly peeks up and grabs him by the hips and pulls him in.
Or maybe Noctis had a good-luck charm that was partly dangling down and he later finds out that it’s gone, but he doesn’t know who(what) snatched it and now he’s on a wild goose chase for it.
Perhaps Ignis was cleaning his glasses and he held it out over the water, he was trying to get the sun to reflect on it to see if he missed a spot and there’s just a sudden SPLASH- it’s gone and now he’s soaked.
Or Prompto got bored and was leaning over, and he just happened to be leaning down and getting too close to the water… And suddenly there are hands at his face and something looking him directly in the eye. (maybe if the mermaid was a bold and wily one, they could pull him in for a smooch before throwing him back)
But could you imagine though? In a grand place like that, that’s already full of wonderful scenic shots just waiting to be taken, if every now and then one of them snuck their way into a picture? Or every now and then surfacing to interact with people just to sate their own curiosity. Wily mermaids who nab something off of you whenever you aren’t looking- heck some of the vendors who are set on boats are paranoid and watch over their goods like a hawk just to make sure them sneaky little mermaids didn’t snitch anything.

Hell imagine if there was some that ventured out to Galden Quey. They become somewhat of an urban legend because no one manages to get a good look at them and never has there been a clear picture, so everyone’s like “It’s just a fish. You saw only just a fish why did you show me this picture of fish tail?”
The waters near Cape Caem? Now that’s where you got to watch out. Get too close to the shore when the mermaids hang around there and someone is bound to become lost treasure.

So I watched Steam Powered Giraffe’s livestream concert earlier and had LOTS OF FEELINGS, so I jotted stuff down as it was happening and then summarized my thoughts after the fact. Word dump under the cut, but TL;DR the concert was lovely and I REALLY HOPE it was beneficial enough to them (and that they enjoyed it enough) that they’ll do more.

I doubt I can ever find a moment not to be so wonderfully photogenic. 
It comes with the the marvelous territory of being so naturally unnatural. 
I should honestly show myself off more, especially when I am delving so deeply into matters Eldritch. 

Feel free to be enraptured and captivated. 
Your entertainment and awe is so very important to me.

Sad people have a certain look in their eyes when they regard something they deeply love, and it’s sad to see because every delightful thing in this world is temporary.

i thought i couldn’t fall deeper in loVE BUT I FUCKING HAVE


in which lafayette’s letters to washington have possibly too many feelings okay

9 February 1778: Could I believe one single instant that this pompous command of a northen army will let your excellency forget a little an absent friend, then I would send the project to the place it comes from — but I dare hope that you will remember me some times

19 February 1778: Why am I so far from you, and what business had that board of war to hurry me through the ice and Snow

23 February 1778: if they have sent me far from you for I do’nt know what purpose, at least I must make some little use of my pen to prevent all communication be cut of betwen your excellency and me

27 February 1778: I understood that john adams Spoke very disrespectfully of your excellency in boston — I do not know if it is true, but in that case I schould very Sorry to have given to him letters for france — give me leave to say my opinion, my dear general; those ennemy’s of yours are So low So far under your feet, that it is not of your dignity to take much notice of ’em

20 March 1778: was I not So sensible of your excelleacy’s goodness for his officers and particular frienship for me, I schould be afraid you’d not forgive so many miss’s tho’ unvolontary one…. my dear general, my mind will be alwaïs super satisfied to be as near you as possible, and I schall look upon any thing you will believe fit for me, as the very best thing I can wish for…. farewell, my most dear and beloved general, do’nt forget your northen friend, and be certain that his sentiments for you will only end with his life

22 March 1778: I can never miss an opportunity of rembembering to your excellency the mighty Commander in chief of the irruption into Canada, and I seize with the greatest pleasure the first occasion of telling you how happy I have been to see in your last favor a new assurance of those sentiments of yours so dear to my heart

25 March 1778: the only condition I have made in coming here, and the only favor I have asked to all the protestations of gratefulness of your commissioners in france, has been not to be under any orders but those of general washington — I seem to have had some suspicion of our future friendship, and what I have done out of esteem and respect for your excellency’s name and reputation, I schould do now out of mere love for general washington himself.

New game: every time some kind of shitty ass representation or dodgy racial stuff makes it into harry potter, we take a new “white” character and make them non white. We already have Hermione, Harry and Neville so now I’m going to go out on a limb and say actually none of the Weasleys are white. At all. In fact none of your faves are white Cedric Diggory isn’t white, Fleur Delacour isn’t white, Remus Lupin definitely isn’t white, neither is Lily Evans and neither is every single member of the Order of the Phoenix I’m taking them all goodbye.
