halloween is over and you know what that means

Ok so I’m re-reading Harry Potter...

On the bus during my commutes to and from school. And as I read, I’ve been making little notes and internal dialogues about things that I notice as I go (or notice again because I have no idea how many times I’ve read these books. So many times…) And I figured I might share them as I go through each book, because honestly when isn’t there a good time to geek out over the Wizarding World? Kay? Kay :)

The Philosopher’s Stone

  • Why, why, WHY does no one talk about Dumbledore’s fabulous high-heeled purple boots??
  • You know what I never noticed before? Professor McGonagall actually left Hogwarts to go to Privet Drive the day that James and Lily died. Like I mean obviously, but think about it; the first book starts out on a Tuesday (says it a couple paragraphs in to the first chapter) and we know that they died on Halloween. So the school is well into its Fall term, and it’s the middle of the week. McGonagall left the school, and all her classes, to go and sit all day long on that garden wall of Privet Drive just to wait for any information at all regarding this family. She sat there literally for hours to hear any confirmation of these wonderful yet terrible rumors. She waited and waited just to see if Harry was alright. And after just barely witnessing a distant taste of how horrid the Dursley’s were, she was completely outraged at Dumbledore’s suggestion to leave Harry there.
  • Also, there was a full day between when James and Lily were killed and when Hagrid brought Harry to Privet Drive. Imagine Hagrid taking care of baby bean Harry, loving on him so much, while probably breaking into tears every few minutes. I’m getting emotional, Hagrid and McGonagall are too wonderful.
  • I love the fact that the very first thing Mrs. Weasley does when she hears who Harry is from the twins is to make sure they treat him like a normal boy rather than going off to gawk at him. She is an amazing mother, and already so ready to protect him in a way he hadn’t known for ten years.
  • Harry and Ron’s first meeting means the world to me. These are two eleven year old boys bonding over not having much money nor being very special growing up. Will I ever make it through reading this series without getting overly-emotional at random bits? Nope, probably not!
  • I’m honestly still confused as to how Peter Pettigrew was sorted into Gryffindor. I mean he really doesn’t seem to display any of the the house traits as far as I can see. The only possible thing I can come up with is that he must’ve befriended the other three Marauders on the first train ride and was so desperate to stick close to them that he insisted the Sorting Hat place him with them. I mean the Hat does take the persons wants into consideration, he must’ve been adamant. Either that or perhaps part of the Hat’s decision is looking at where someone’s placement would benefit them most? Like “this child could do with being around these specific people so hopefully they will grow to be courageous when circumstances call for it, as well as truly loyal to those who care for and are loyal to them.” Maybe the Hat doesn’t just look at who you are but also who you need to become. And in the instance of Pettigrew, it just wasn’t enough.
  • It’s actually canon that Dumbledore likes bowling. Why does no one talk about this? More importantly, why is there no art for this??
  • Still not over how Hagrid totally sent Harry a letter with Hedwig that first week of school to make sure he didn’t feel left out.
  • Can we talk about the fact that Neville took on both Crabbe and Goyle single handed while Ron beat up Malfoy? Because FRICK YEAH go Neville!
  • Every time they mention Charlie Weasley I re-realize just how salty I am that they never had him in the movies.
  • Hagrid says Dumbledore “borrowed” Fluffy, which makes me wonder where he keeps Fluffy when he’s not living on the 3rd floor? Maybe in the forest, like Grawp? I suspect it would need to be super deep in there…
  • Honestly Snape is such an ass. I know he was technically on the good side, but he was certainly not a good person. And any Snape apologists can fight me on this.

Sci: “Could you just behave for once?!”

Fell: “Oh come on, vampire-babe. Don’t you want to come over here for a bite? <3″

Sci: “Oh my god! You’re ridiculous! I should have just gone trick-or-tricking with the Papyrus’s!”

Fell: “You know you love me.”

Sci: “I do, but sometimes I seriously question it!”

Happy Halloween! For the occasion, I made this odd scifell comic with them celebrating Halloween on the surface in some sort of cross-dimensional pacifist timeline; I don’t know. For some reason I imagined Fell pretending to be a Halloween decoration in order to scare people, and this comic pretty much came from that. It’s a bit messy, but at least I got it done in time, somehow.

All For One and One For All.*Sebastian Stan x Reader*

Warnings: fluff, Dad!Stan


“Wow, here I thought us Stan men couldn’t get any more handsome.” He grinned at his boys who sat on the floor looking up at him, he gave a small chuckle as Ivan made grabby hands for him, “I know, I look strapping too, Ivan.”

You had unfortunately been called in for work, meaning you’d be missing trick or treating this year with your boys, press tours were lousy especially when you had kids. Sebastian had finally been able to pick the costumes this year, considering you were gone, therefore you had no control over what they wear.

He had chosen, The Three Musketeers, he even got really cool fake swords for the three of them; not that it mattered too much to the four-year-olds in question. He took a couple funny photos before taking one of their hands in each of his, their other hands holding their pumpkin candy buckets for sweeties.

“I’m gonna get more candy than, Ivan” Stefan the eldest of the two by three minutes stated, his big blue, innocent eyes that resembled Sebastian’s was shielded slightly by the feathered hat, Sebastian raised his eyebrows.

Ivan glared at his brother, the three musketeers walking down the street to their first house, “it’s not a competition, is it dad?”

“Of course not, you’ll both get an equal amount of candy because you are both equally adorable.” Sebastian chuckled, “If I had my own bucket then I may end up getting more candy because let’s face it, little dudes, I am cuter.”

Ivan and Stefan giggled at their dad, each rolling their eyes, something Sebastian is adamant you taught them. Not believing that maybe the fact he is a major goofball that it’s just an instant reaction to the things he says.

Every house they went to they all got complimented on their outfits, especially about how adorable all three looked, which Sebastian would blush at cause he’s a big dork.                

“We enjoying Halloween?” he turned and see Ivan and Stefan sword fighting, hitting their plastic swords against one another’s, “hey, tootie fruities, the three musketeers don’t fight one another.” He tells them, resting his hands on his hips, blowing at the feather coming down and tickling his nose from his hat.

“What do they do then?” Ivan asked his left arm behind his back from where Stefan had cut it off.

Sebastian chuckled and got down on his knees, “well, they work together as a team, brothers almost. They also have this cool saying they do when they hold their swords in the air.” He grins as both his sons look up at him brightly.

“What do they say?” Stefan asked walking forwards and hugging Sebastian’s arm looking up at him, Sebastian smiled at his son.

“My little musketeer Athos, they say; one for all, and all for one.” He grinned both Ivan and Stefan looked at one another.

“Athas?” Ivan asked his lisp really coming through with his ‘th’.

Sebastian laughed, “No, Athos that’s a musketeer! We’ll watch it when you’re older,” Stefan chuckled “anyway, they hold their swords up like this,” he got his own fake sword and it held up. “And the other musketeers will hold up theirs and stand in a sort of triangle, then yell that at the same time.”

“Can we do that?” Stefan asked putting down his pumpkin bucket full of various candies, Sebastian brightly grinned and nodded, he placed Stefan beside him and they all held their plastic swords up in the air.

One for all, and all for one.” They all yelled together; Ivan slightly messing up the words causing his brother to snicker beside him.

They carried on trick or treating, bumping into their friends from preschool who complimented their outfits, the other dad’s chuckling at Sebastian’s enthusiasm to wearing a costume; it is his job to dress up for a living they shouldn’t be too surprised.

“The Romanian translation for that is; Unul pentru toți și toți pentru unul,” Sebastian tells them and opening the front door, carrying their pumpkin buckets as the two small boys pretended to fight bad guys for the king.

Both boys stop and look at Sebastian; he smiles down at them as they both try to repeat what he said in Romanian. He laughed loudly at their attempts, they only got the basics of his language and that was okay, it just meant he got to speak it a lot more around them in the hopes they will pick it up fluently.
He placed their sweets on the kitchen counter both boys about to climb on the kitchen stools. Sebastian grabbed them both, throwing each boy over his shoulders as they laughed their hats falling off in the process as ran up the stairs to their bedroom.

“Okay, little Musketeers get your pj’s on and brush those pearly whites, I’ll be in to tuck you both to sleep.” Sebastian sets them down by their beds kissing their heads as he stands up to make sure the front door is locked.

He walked back to see them still playing with their plastic swords only, this time, both in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles footsie pjs. He chuckled at the scene before him both boys stopping and yelling that he was the villain, resulting in two bundles of green turtles to attack his legs, he pretended to fall to the floor in defeat.

He started to laugh as he laid face first on their blue carpet, “dad you’re meant to be dead.” Ivan explained smoothing a small hand through his dad, longish brown locks.

He snickered and leant up on his elbows. “Can we carry on my death and your victory tomorrow? You two musketeer turtles gotta get some rest.” Both boys yawned and nodded, allowing Sebastian to pick them and place them into each bed, kissing their foreheads.

“Noapte bună, tată.” His sons sleepily mutter to him as he walks to the light switch; his heartwarming despite the fact their toddler voices muddled a few of the words and their accent was slightly off.

“Good night, tootie fruities” he smiled before shutting the light off and leaving their door ajar.

He lazily walked to your bedroom, pushing the door open and taking off the sword belt and throwing it onto the chair, shutting the door behind him and turning around to the bed.

He stopped dead in his tracks at the sight before him, eyebrows shooting up and mouth falling in a silent gasp.

You laid on your side, your head resting in one hand and the other draped down your side, a coy smile upon your smile. Your smile eventually dropped as you took in what your husband was wearing before you.

“Seb, what are you wearing?” you frowned at the sight before you.

“No, no you can’t ask me that wearing… that,” Sebastian countered his eyes still taking in your costume that you had decided would be perfect.

You were currently wearing that Princess Leia outfit that every dude fantasised over, you only wore this damn thing because he had hinted that he was gonna make the boys wear the best golden trio costumes ever, meaning Star Wars!

“I thought you’d be Han Solo, duh” you sit up on your knees now, giving a full view of the outfit and Sebastian had a hard time being a gentleman before you. “You said the best golden trio, I thought Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Chewie.”

“That’s a really good idea, I really should have thought of that,” Sebastian muttered to himself before shrugging it off. “No, I meant the three musketeers, babe.”

You sighed as he chuckled wiggling his eyebrows as he strolled over to you, dipping his head as his own hat fell forwards, you had to admit he looked very enticing in the get-up. Hat creating a shadow over the top half of his face; his chiselled jaw line being the most prominent feature, the outfit really clinging to his body and stretching over the hard muscle.

“This is gonna be a weird one, I can tell.” You smirk as he leans down and presses his lips onto your own, his arm encircling your waist and pulling you flush against him, “space princess and a musketeer, that’s a good story.”

He pulls away and chuckles, “one for all-“ he’s cut off by the very loud, hushed whisperings of children sneaking down the stairs and passed their bedroom door, he gives you a look as you chuckle.

You throw a robe on yourself before following Sebastian down the stairs to the kitchen where both, Stefan and Ivan, sat on the bar stools peeking into their Halloween buckets; you smiled lovingly at your mini Stan’s.

“Little men, I thought dad said no candy till tomorrow?” you call out and both boys turn grinning at you, you couldn’t help but walk over and sit on the counter also peeking into the buckets as Sebastian just sighed.

“Happy Halloween, mumma,” Ivan smiles up at you, you grin down at him and lean forward to kiss him on his nose.

“Look at all this candy; you did me proud, musketeers.” Sebastian leans against the counter beside you and holding Stefan in his arms.

Stefan and Ivan raise their arms pretending to hold fake swords, Sebastian following suit, you frowned as they yelled, “One for all, and all for one.”

“I now understand why I usually pick out the costumes,” you sighed gently pulling out a toffee sweet, resulting in the three men you loved to yell at you for eating sweets before bed.

(I don’t know Romanian if the translation is wrong, I am awfully sorry. Hope you enjoyed this, decided three musketeers would be hilarious, don’t know why and the ending with the reader dressed up was my friends idea. - Rosalee)

None of the gifs I use belong to me, cr. go to their rightful owners!

It’s that time of year again! Apply for the third annual Teen Titans Secret Santa :) I’m opening it earlier than usual this year, because I know some people need some more time to do their gifts (I mean I know I do. College is hard man). 

Applications are open until November 5th. Expect to get your assignment around November 10th, this way everyone has over a month to get their lives together lol

Rules (bc we’ve had some issues in the past):

  1. Make sure what you ask for is Teen Titans related (try to make it cartoon related, as not all the fans have read the comics), not everyone knows about characters in your other fandoms.
  2. Be a decent person. If you know you have to drop out and can no longer participate, message me about it so I can assign your person to someone else. It’s not right for some people to end up with no gift after working so hard on one for someone else.
  3. When you post your finished gift (you can either post it and tag the person in it, or submit it directly to them) tag teen titans secret santa so everyone can see!

Want some example of gifts in the past? Look here
