okay listen., wolfboy, sep, and syrah all going on little missions every once in a while together that aren't too important but require a lot of skills. the three of them work rlly well under pressure and use these missions as an outlet for their ptsd

i’m gonna?? do some headcanons for this if you don’t mind

  • it’s sep’s idea
  • he has a couple things he wants to look into because he found this disguised map in the library
  • he wants to keep it on the DL, and he knows it’s gonna require a lot of special skills, specifically stealth
  • his mind immediately goes to wolf boy
  • wolf boy agrees, obviously, and they look over the map, but they can’t decipher it
  • one symbol keeps appearing, and sep knows he’s seen it somewhere, but he can’t figure out where
  • it’s later that night while looking over something else that he realizes:
  • it’s an old magyk symbol
  • and he’s seen it on syrah
  • he and wolf boy go to see her the next morning and inquire about it
  • she recognizes the symbol, and the reason neither of the boys do is because it was the joint alchemie-magyk combination symbol, and after the Great Alchemie Disaster, all traces of it were destroyed
  • the map ends up leading them to an old, old sealed away store of alchemie things, deep under the house of an old wizard who’s wife was an alchemist, and, not wanting to destroy it all when instructed, he sealed it all there instead
  • it’s during this little mission where wolf boy and syrah really meet since she woke up, and the 3 of them realize they’re a pretty great elite team
  • sep calls them up whenever he wants something handled quickly or quietly, and the 3 of them go on these missions
  • they realize pretty quickly how messed up all of them really are, especially when it comes to paranoia
  • syrah especially loves puzzles because her mind is so quick, but she’s so unused to it being entirely her own. solving things helps her feel in control, of both the situation and of herself
  • nobody criticizes anyone else for how they cope, or for going into instinctive mode when something happens
  • instead, they try to calm each other down, learning what helps most along the way
  • wolf boy is the one who finally gets syrah to trust being asleep around other people
  • they all hate sleeping for long times, but syrah is the worst of all. she will willingly stay up for days on end, and wolf boy will absolutely not have it
  • he eventually gets her to sleep because he said she needs to be her best self for if they get into any fights or have to flee, she needs her stamina
  • (he feels kind of guilty because he threw in that he would hate to have something happen to him or sep because she wasn’t on her guard, but he knew she’d never do it for herself)
  • sep and syrah ground wolf boy, more than he would like to admit. having 2 people know what it’s like to never feel safe in your own skin is calming
  • they start to be able to silently communicate perfectly
  • wolf boy starts training the other 2 in hand-to-hand combat, which they both know, but are rusty at
  • syrah’s instinct is to punch, not use her own magyk, so she appreciates the combat exercises, but eventually she realizes on these missions that she knows a lot of magyk, she really should be using it
  • she sees how magyk is a comfort to sep, not a burden, and it kind of inspires her
  • this trio kills me

It seems strange to me that someone would just up and say they literally take notes on things you say, even if its true I don't think someone would actually tell you that unless they wanted to date ur face. I dunno though, you'd obviously know better than I do

…not to like, blow my own horn. But I wouldn’t underestimate an individual’s ability to dominate/be a big part of a class.

It’s run like a seminar, so it’s basically all conversation/discussion based, we talk in a big group style and it’s pretty easy to tell who’s done the reading and who knows their stuff. It’s an upper-division so it’s like academic hunger games.

I don’t think people would do this in say high school (maybe for AP/IB??) but there are leaders of classes in college that people will gravitate toward to be the lighthouse of knowledge in a drowning sea of complex theoretical questions.

I’ve always been pretty good at abstract concepts, and after a couple years of debate and mock trial my oration skills are like, loud and attention grabbing (don’t be afraid to assert yourself in class ladies)

So I’ve had people come up to me after class on other occasions and tell me ‘I get excited when you talk! You always say smart things!’ and ‘nice contribution about xyz.’

Anyway, I should clarify that I am an honors student who goes to college on scholarships, I study really hard and expect a lot of myself, people coming up to me and asking how to like, approach a topic is kinda just a thing that happens.

Got7 as types of princes

Mark: the hidden away prince. Had a curse placed on him when he was born. Sneaks out of the palace and uses a fake name to adventure around. Sounds really good when announcing royal proclamations.

JB: the cool prince. Appears to be scary and there’s rumors that he slayed a dragon when he was three. Is actually a sweetheart that bows to palace staff.

Jackson: the travelling prince. Speaks more languages than all their diplomats combined. Very involved in politics and often goes out to visit his citizens. Everyone has a crush on him.

Jinyoung: the scholarly prince. Has read everything in the royal library twice. Funny at royal balls and has the best manners. Doesn’t return babies he’s handed to kiss.

Youngjae: the soft prince. Really awkward about royal duties. Prefers to be in the gardens or music hall. Attracts woodland creatures.

BamBam: the pretty prince. Designers would kill to dress him. Has at least four closets. Throws great parties. If he pierces his ears, so does everyone else.

Yugyeom: the nice prince. Choreographed the latest ballroom dance. Sipped champagne once and got found in the dungeons. Cares a lot for his citizens and is honest in nation reports.
