I saw like a hc somewhere not long ago that bh has a soft spot for babies, flug finda an abandoned baby and he attempts to care for it without bh knowing. When he finds out and he notices the kid crying and like flug trying to calm it down, bh like you're doing it wrong and flug thinks he could do better. Bh does a better job in calming them down and secretly has a soft spot for them?? Has some experience but never with a human one??

anon i’m so weak for this don’t do this to me

  • Flug is incredibly nervous and is trying his best but has no confidence in what he’s doing. it just never stops crying?? like #relatable but still oh god this was a bad idea
  • BH shows up to see how Flug’s doing on an invention and is like “what the fuck.” He rushes forward and Flug is like oh god he’s gonna eat the baby but instead–
  • BH gets it into a proper swaddle, saying “You’re holding it wrong, what the fuck are you doing?? A baby’s neck can’t support the head’s weight.”
  • Flug is baffled. He was 97% sure BH was going to drop it. “Uh, s-sir? How do you kno–” “Are you taking notes Fug?I’m only demonstrating this once.” “Y-yes sir!!”
  • “Now it should start molting in a couple months, when that happens you gotta–” “Wait WHAT. Sir, uh, this is a human baby.” “a what.”
  • BH has no idea how to care for a human child. He only knows the things Alan told him about (read: wouldn’t shut up about) his own infancy. There’s some overlap, but BH refuses to believe that this “tiny, gross pink thing” isn’t the larval stage of, you know, a normal infant.
  • “Larval stage?? With all due respect sir, the fuck?” “What, you expect me to believe it doesn’t make an outer cocoon before maturing into the juvenile phase? Isn’t that how everyone grows up?” “Sir…
  • He’s basically turning into Alan holy shit
Odd Angband/Elf headcanon

Alright so Angband’s got like a bazillion elves right. How the hell do they keep track of them all? Like, you want to torture elves, but some are workers and you shouldn’t maim their legs and stuff because that would be counterproductive. Or some are Melkor’s collection of beautiful elves (which he implies he has in lay of lethian), in which case you don’t want to torture them in a way that fucks up their appearence. 

So I for Sauron and Melkor to sort their elves…. the ear system.

There are three levels, jewelry, blank, and cut.

And two ears, right and left.

I really couldn’t figure out how to explain this aside from a chart

So little things like

  • If you meet an elf with both ear tips cut off you know they’re lucky to be alive
  • Gwindor would of had his left (work) ear tip still, since he was a working elf, but his right (beauty) tip cut off because that was unnecessary
  • If Luthien did get stuck in Angband, she would probably have a ring on both ears
  • If an elf really wants to die, they’ll try to cut off their ears

Most of class a hanging out and having fun together in the dorms when they hat dramatic piano music playing so they curiously look for the origin of said music, and end up outside of Tokoyami’s room. They slowly open the door to reveal Tokoyami in a cape, playing his keyboard along with Dark Shadow. (A keyboard because his piano didn’t fit)

anonymous asked:

505's hugs are literally the best and even Black Hat becomes about 30% less angry when he gets one. Flug is still investigating why they have this affect (but honestly he loves getting them, especially when he's fried from stress)

Ngl i would kill people for a 505 hug rn alright.

Flug’s anxiety is temporarily relieved, Dementia becomes a tad more tranquil than usual, and Black Hat, well. BH would rather die than admit he enjoys being hugged by this nice fluffy blue bear. He would rather kill 5.0.5 than confess to find the cuddling relaxing tbh

(I would also just like to point out that the man who voices 5.0.5 is capable of not only making cute little “aroo” noises, but also this growly shit like omg the fuck)

Helion, Lucien, and the Lady of the Autumn Court Drabble

Helion looked down at Lucien. And wondered.

Wondered if he ever suspected that Beron was never his father. Wondered if he recognized the Day Court blood that coursed through his veins. Wondered—wondered if Lucien ever found out, if he would accept any of it.

Helion looked over at Lucien, but his face gave no hint that he knew any of the things Helion was trying to process. It had been weeks since Viviane had pushed Isadore’s letter into his hand. Weeks since he had read the secret that had changed his life.

I know that you didn’t anticipate this, Isadore had written. And I regret doing this. I regret springing this on you. I’m sorry—for all of this.

But that was past. The dark forest in front of him, the looming threat of conflict—was now.

He reached out, as if to put his hand on Lucien’s shoulder, but thought better of it. Instead, he simply said, “You should go. The longer we stay, the more likely we are to meet Beron or one of your lovely brothers.”

Lucien scowled at the mention of his family.

His family, Helion thought.

His stomach turned a little.

His family.

Lucien, however, turned back to face the sloping lawns of the Autumn manor one last time, a look on his face that not even Helion could decipher. Anger? Longing? But the moment was over as swiftly as it had come, and soon, both males had turned towards the dark trees once more.

“I’ll take you to Rhysand first—then we can decide what to do, and—”

Helion froze, as did Lucien. The soft sounds of feet on wet grass drew closer and closer, and Helion could make out a petite figure running towards them.

Auburn hair, still gleaming in the charcoal night, shawl loosened from her shoulders, flying out behind her—

—Helion felt his breath catch.

The Lady of the Autumn Court came to a graceful stop in front of her, her dress whipping slightly in the wind as she dug her heels into the grass. Her feet were clad only in thin flats, and her dress was too casual for what the wife of a High Lord should have been clad in. Isadore tucked her shawl in tighter, eyes flitting from Helion to Lucien to Helion and back to her son.

Lucien stepped forward, protectively? “Mother, what—”

But Isadore had already held out her arms to her son, and he acquiesced, and she clung to him tightly. Lucien’s chin fit into the crook of her neck, and Helion felt as if he was trespassing on a private moment between mother and son. Neither of them said anything.

When they broke apart, Isadore cupped one of her son’s cheeks in her palm, lips trembling in a tentative smile. “Lucien,” she murmured. “My son, oh, Lucien—”

“—what are you doing here, Mother?” Lucien’s tone was anxious.

Isadore’s eyes were still wide, with an emotion that, for all of his knowledge and intuition, Helion couldn’t place. Like mother like son, he supposed.

“I came to see you off.” She squeezed Lucien’s hand with hers. Quietly, she added, “stay with Lord Helion. Please.” There was something emphatic in her tone that made Helion turn towards her. Her eyes flickered towards him, and Helion felt himself crumple under her gaze.

Lucien gently removed his mother’s palm from his cheek and grasped it in his. “I know.”

“Promise me, Lucien.”

“I—I promise.”

Isadore smiled, heartbreakingly, kissed her son on the cheek, and turned to leave. Her steps were unsteady.

Helion’s eyes narrowed. “What do you know, Lady?”

She halted. “What do you mean, my lord?”

“This sounds like a goodbye.”

“It is.”

Lucien, the trees, the rumbling storm, the world faded as Isadore turned to face him. Completely.

“A final goodbye.”

She drew her arms up around herself. “I have no idea what you mean. I’m afraid I have to go, or else B—”

“—Beron.” The name hung heavy in the air between them. Helion could feel Lucien behind him, scrutinizing every aspect of the conversation. “It’s him, isn’t it?”

She gave him a soft grimace. “It’s always been him.”

“Mother, if he’s threatening you again—”

“—nothing is happening, Lucien, relax.” She looked at Helion. “You need to—”

But before she could finish, a scarlet-orange glow lit up the ground behind her. Isadore reacted the quickest, pushing Helion towards Lucien. “Go!”

Lucien ran forward, in an attempt to save his mother, but Helion gripped him by the hand and they vanished into darkness.

The last thought on his mind for days.

Isadore.

Rogue Head-Canon #3

1. Rogue keeps her hair in long curls. The color is on the red side of the spectrum, auburn to be precise. If she stays in a sunny place for a prolonged period of time, her hair will soak it up and the cherry wood hue will get shot through with warmer cinnamon and amber tones.

2. When those two dumbasses finally get their heads out of their asses you better believe this happens. Minimalist and small, still meaningful outside of the “matching tattoo” idea to each of them.

3. Because Hannah Ferguson absolutely is my ultimate Rogue’s body head-canon.

4. Rogues stance on bras? Optional. It goes 50/50, depending on her mood. 

5. Rogue’s haircut circa X-treme X-men Era

6. Anna really needs to chill with the “Queen of Hearts” thing. Blame Emma, she’s the one that introduced her to Agent Provocateur and their arsenal of cute pasties.

7. Rogue was a cute baby, toddler, and kid, but she hits a REALLY awkward spot after she hits fourteen.

(my rationalisation of how she went from this:

to this:

…The first years of puberty were not kind to her.)

She’s doomed with too-severe-for-her-age features, chubby-cheeks, and gollum/smeagol eyes for a hot minute until she grows into her looks to this:

So all’s well that ends well.

Hc on Ann and the guards??? Like they adore him like a bro.

100% (Edit: oops posted instead of queuing)

If Roman is busy with Logan and/or Patton for whatever reason, and Ann needs guarding, there’s a pair that are always ready to protect him: Dan and Phil. They’re tall and funny and good friends. Ann likes them because they treat him like a little brother rather than a charge, and will play video games with him if he gets bored.

Tarquin and a mate (some thoughts)

Everyone knows and loves water daddy Tarquin, and whoever’s his (possible) mate is pretty much fair game.

But what if his mate is Feysand’s daughter???

(idk, I think Tarquin is straight? Maybe??)

I mean sure, it would be weird because he and her mom had a sort-of-thing (but not really) but still …

Imagine it.

(Let’s call Feysand girl Celeste and Feysand boy Deimus for simplicity’s sake)

  • Feysand’s children being pretty much
    polar opposites; Deimus is quiet and
    reserved and poetic and Celeste is
    just completely promiscuous and wild
    (Or maybe they’re both wild but reserved)
  • Celeste having a secret love for music,
    just as her brother has a love for literature
  • Celeste being hella powerful and strong
    but is also stuck in a post-Tamlin the tool
    stage like her mom was where she’s
    scared of her powers
  • Feysand children representing this new
    era of Prythia where politics are fucked
    up
    and needs to be fixed
  • And it just so happens that Celeste is
    hella smart and politic-savvy too
  • (And I know she sounds a lot like Kestrel
    from TWC but ughhhh I love Kestrel so
    much)
  • And Tarquin meets Celeste at a bar
    somewhere or at a fancy ball in Velaris
    He’s just been through some kind of
    upsetting ordeal (I’d say breakup, but who
    would break up with him?!)
  • And Celeste is like, super angry, angrier
    than usual for some unspecified reason,
    and as a result, more flirtatious, and
    literally charms the pants off of
    Tarquin. And Tarquin, being Tarquin is so hot that it’s a no brainier that the two of them end up together
  • And they have some hot, steamy, sex
    somewhere in Tarquin’s quarters in the
    official Velaris residence for visiting
    emissaries and dignitaries
  • Neither of them know who the other is;
    Tarquin assumes she’s just some High
    Fae living in the Night Court, and Celeste
    assumes that he’s just a High Fae in the
    employ of the Summer Court
  • It’s worth noting that neither Tarquin nor
    Celeste have ever met, or, if they did, they
    met a long time ago. (Feyre says in
    ACOMAF that she wants to experience life
    with Rhys before starting a family. If we
    use our magic number 50 to represent
    that glorious “married without children”
    period, and add, say, three years to
    represent a three year gap between
    Deimus and Celeste, Tarquin would only
    be about 133 years older than Celeste.
    Fae are only around 20 or so human
    years at 100 years old. At 133, Tarquin
    would have been about 26 or 27. At the
    time of my HC, Celeste is around 100.)
  • Given that Rhys and Feyre (Rhys in
    particular) seem very protective over their
    loved ones, I would argue that they would
    be protective parents and shield their
    children from the world outside their
    bubble for as long as possible. Of course,
    that doesn’t mean that Deimus and
    Celeste are naïve, it just means that
    maybe they haven’t met many of our
    favorite High Lords and Ladies aside from
    the ones that have connections within the
    Night Court, like close friends (Kallias and
    Viviane, Helion).
  • That being said, Tarquin is also close to
    Rhys and Feyre. He could have very well
    met Deimus and Celeste when they were
    children. I’d wager that it’s weird, but not
    completely unheard of, if Fae see their
    future mates as children. (Even if Feyre
    had been Fae, Rhysand would have still
    been a good 500 years old when she was
    born. Not to mention that fact that Lucien
    is probably a good 200 to 300 years older
    than Elain.)
  • But I’ll minimize the awkward for the both
    of us, and say that Tarquin did
    meet Deimus and Celeste, but either as
    infants or as toddlers. All of the other
    visits, Rhys and Feyre hid their children
    from nasty court politics.
  • And Tarquin has no idea who he slept with until the very next morning, when he joins Rhys, Feyre, Deimus, and Celeste with Varian and Cresseida for breakfast and freaks the fuck out when Rhys introduces Celeste as his daughter.
  • Tarquin feels like dying right then and there, but manages to wait until after breakfast and until both him and Celeste are alone to confront the feeling of oh my gods what the fuck did I do??
  • Celeste feels herself flush when the handsome Fae male she slept with the night before is introduced as the High Lord of the Summer Court but she coolly brushes off his attempts to apologize (?) to her after breakfast.
  • But despite all of their efforts, Tarquin and Celeste seem to always find their way back to each other, and they become friends and eventually, after a whole series of pain, the mating bond clicks into place. But I’ll save that for a snippet or something.
Bonus: Deimus and Celeste are really close, but given that Deimus’s inner Rhys hides deep below the surface, Celeste takes on the role of the “I’ll kill you if you break his heart”

This HC has been sitting in my head for the longest time, and I’m thinking about turning it into a fic…

What is breakfast like for everyone? Mafia AU please

Patton and Ann always have breakfast together; a hired chef makes them decadent, sweet breakfasts. From french toast dusted with powdered sugar and a side of fruit arranged into a flower to chocolate chip pancakes and whipped cream. They’re sickeningly adorable together, feeding each other bites of food and exchanging syrup sticky kisses.

Roman usually has toast with jam and and a banana, although on occasion he treats himself to fluffy pancakes.

Logan doesn’t eat breakfast most of the time, but he always has coffee, which he takes black.

headcanon that they both think the other has it better and it’s a rivalry sustained on mutual admiration, but they think the other hates them so they’ll never say it

but eventually, someone (keith) slips up


/// im ded school is fukin over finally // :pp kill me; i stil have so much shit to do

No, but listen, people

I know there’s this fandom joke about everyone’s outfits being horrid and Lance being the only one with a sense of style, but listen me here. 

Isn’t the show supposed to be set in the future? I mean, it’s not quite confirmed but we can pressume the story takes place in a  futuristic, technology-wise advanced earth, right? Well, you know what other element of society is also always evolving?

That’s right, fashion. 

So, what I’m saying is that this is probably how people on earth actually dress by the time period  the show is set in. They don’t have terrible tastes in fashion, this is the fashion in this world. 

That being said, Lance wearing normal 2010s teenager clothes becomes a whole different concept. He isn’t going with his time’s fashion, he is wearing something his parents, or even his grandparents would have wore. So basically he is the sci-fi equivalent of a guy in the 2017 wearing zubaz pants, sky jackets and neon headbands, or something like that. Which is, i have to say, absolutely hilarious. These aren’t four awful looks + one with actual style. These are four totally normal looks + some nerd wearing his grandparent’s clothes like a goddamn futuristic hipster. 

This fucking dork just took the concept of vintage to a whole new level, i love him so much. 

Listen  I know Yuuri is tiny and shy and precious, but he’s an athlete and I love the idea of him being unexpectedly physically strong. Also, he is strong already but he works out extra just because he realizes that Viktor really likes it when Yuuri scoops him up and carries him. Yuuri is small okay he’s got a slight build, so when he’s like “okay Vitya I’ll take you upstairs” to a drunk Viktor and just bends down to scoop him up bridal style, anyone in their vicinity will be like “what the fuck”. 

Also I don’t think for a minute that Viktor in general wouldn’t be super appreciative of Yuuri’s very toned and solid arms… he’ll drunkenly pat them with this pleased smile like “Wow! Yuuri you’re so strong! I love your muscles!”

Viktor internally is like “ah yes they’re perfect for carrying me around more”. Meanwhile tiny sweet boy Yuuri “I only lift weights so I can carry Viktor Nikiforov safe in my arms” is pleased with all of the attention because Viktor is just so appreciative and he can’t help but preen a little under the praise.

Homestuck Pool Party Headcanons

John: Canonballs in IMMEDIATELY, he is yelling and he is fucking excited move out of the way this boy is coming through!! Also, because he has a breath aspect I am 413% certain that he can stay underwater for indefinite amounts of time and you can bet your ass he’s going around grabbing people’s feet to freak them out. He and Terezi have a contest to see who can make the most people jump, I will not say who wins I will only say that it is unfortunate for everyone involved. He and Dave are an unstoppable chicken team, they have never lost and will do Whatever It Takes to make sure that remains true.

Dave: Is just chillin, he cares more about keeping his shades dry than swimming around. He will go hard as hell in Marco Polo tho, if you thought he was too cool to jump at the nearest person faster than the speed of light you were wrong buddy he will do what it takes to WIN. Also, when he is the Marco he will (unfairly) target Karkat. This is frustrating. “I’m not even being that loud” Karkat protests for the umpteenth time Dave tags him. “Bullshit” everyone else says, but there’s still a rule that Dave can’t tag Karkat more than five times in a row because really Dave we know you love hearing him yell but Enough Please.

Karkat: Is Bad At Marco Polo. He is so loud. My son. Please. Is very hesitant to get into the water at first bc he’s sensitive to the cold and would rather angrily sweat than deal with the initial shock of getting in. Dave will patiently chill nearby until Karkat is ready, or Dave decides that Karkat is ready in which he will absolutely drag him in. Karkat does not know how to swim so he won’t go past the shallow end, and considering how short he is, uh, that’s not very much of the pool. Dave has to carry him sometimes which he complains about A Lot but secretly kind of likes it whoops. Karkat and Sollux are the shittiest chicken team, Karkat is too afraid of falling in to have any sort of effective strategy and Sollux is like “Karkat just push him” and sort of plows into the other team which just leads to Karkat screeching and nothing gets done.

Roxy: LOVES SWIMMING WITH HER FRIENDS!!! Real people?? That she’s hanging out with?? And you KNOW she’s excited to wear that cute as fuck bikini she alchemized months ago ‘just in case’ ;) ;) ;). After years of knowing Jane and her silly prankster shenanigans, John will absolutely not get the drop on her no sir, he tries to grab her foot she will raise that leg and pull the boy out of the water and give him the Mom Look™. This is war. John will not win. She loves being with Jane and Roxy and her boys!! She is just full of so much love it’s incredible. She deserves this so much.

Calliope: Doesn’t know much about swimming or why humans (and trolls ish) find it so enjoyable, but Roxy is excited so she is too! Interestingly enough, cherubs Do Not Float. Roxy is waving a nervous Callie into the pool and she’s coming down the ladder and once it gets to her chin everyone expects her to do something but no, she makes it to the bottom of the pool and just walks like normal over to where Roxy is. The water level comes up to just below her nose and she has to tilt her head back to speak. “Like this?” She asks excitedly, ‘uh,,, yeah,,,like that’ everyone responds nervously, giving big smiles and thumbs up because they don’t want to disappoint her.

Jade: A master swimmer, she and Jake grew up on an island in the middle of the goddamn pacific my girl knows how to GO. No one realized how fucking ripped Jade was. Jade is ripped as heck. She’s got back and shoulder muscles like an absolute goddess and everyone is like holy shit? Jade? Have you been benching pumpkins all these years? She likes chilling with Jane and Roxy and Calliope because she has been longing for some gals to hang with forever. Not that she doesn’t love Rose, she does, it’s just, they have such differing personalities and anyways it’s kind of hard being around her and Kanaya bc they’re so cute it makes your teeth hurt.

Rose: She and Kanaya have matching floppy sun hats, they love laying out in the sun because Kanaya is a little nervous around water thanks to a certain sea-dweller *cough* eridan *cough*. Rose doesn’t mind, her swimsuits are more for show than swim anyways. She’s got some really cool and intricate goth-y ones and some nice lighthearted pastel ones, an orange and yellow fancy one-piece and a frilly lavender one. Rose has a new appreciation for sunlight but still religiously applies sunscreen because a home girl may be immortal, but fuck if she is gonna deal with any nasty sunburns after defeating the fucking embodiment of evil.

Kanaya: As previously stated, very nervous around water, but so so happy to be in the sun?? It’s not as bright as the one on Alternia which is fine because that means her troll friends can enjoy it too, but she’s literally just so happy to be around people that enjoy the sun the way she does because she’s felt wrong and different about it for years and she finally found someone that understands her ahhshshsjs. She designs all of Rose’s swimsuits and loves seeing her wear them. When it gets dark out, she likes to turn on the glow a little and all these cute little furry wingbeasts will flock to her?? “Those are moths” Rose tells her. “These are my children now” Kanaya pats Rose’s arm, they’re her children too because that’s how human marriage works she’s pretty sure

Dirk: Is so awkward oh my godddd, a little uncomfortable in his body actually? This boy might have muscle but he is all arms and legs and doesn’t know what to do with them because he’s never fuckifnfnfn been around people before. Doesn’t say “Marco” during Marco Polo, he just listens. Breath too loud? You’re tagged. Splash a little? Tagged. Move? Tagged. He’s never Marco for more than two minutes because he’s so in tune with his reflexes that no one even stands a chance. With Jake on his shoulders, they make a decent chicken team, but they’re too worried about each other to be effective. “You okay up there?” He wants to make sure. Someone is tipping Jake over oh no get him off my shoulders is he okay, oh he’s fine, yes I know how the game works Roxy, no Rose why don’t you get in the pool and do a better job before you come for me like that. Rose and Kanaya, in an extremely rare occurrence, do get in for a round of chicken. They beat Dirk and Jake almost immediately. They return to the deck. This never happened and we don’t speak of it.

Jake: Is bad at Marco Polo, he’s an amazing swimmer but he’s not…quiet. After growing up on that island, fighting and swimming, Jake is also Ripped as Heck. Dirk blushes his fucking ass off the first time he sees Jake shirtless. Jake acts all clueless like oh? What’s wrong Dirk? Is something the matter? But he knows exactly what he’s doing and if he’s subtly flexing in front of him, well. That can’t be helped. He may suck during chicken with Dirk, but with Jade on his shoulders? Hoo boy, they give Dave and John a run for their money. He is also John’s favorite to grab the feet of because his reactions are always so over the top with his phrasing. “Horsefeathers!” He grabs at his foot in panic because his first thought is it was one of the monsters from his island, then he sees it was just John who is laughing his ass off because, horse feathers? Really? “I say,” Jake huffs indignantly even though he’s smiling now. “Warn a fellow!”

Jane: Looks rockin’ in her swimsuits because she’s wearing the whole high waisted pinup style ones and?? She’s super gorgeous? Roxy makes sure to tell her that every five seconds just in case she forgets. She and Roxy make a decent chicken team, usually they’re laughing so hard by the end of it that whoever was on top can’t do anything and they fall off because they don’t care about winning they’re just having such a good time. She and Roxy take turns carrying Callie around when the water gets too deep, not that Callie needs to be above the water per se as she seems to have no trouble breathing, but it just makes everyone a little more comfortable and anyways Callie loves it.

Terezi: Killer at Marco Polo for obvious reasons, sometimes she gets tagged on purpose just to show off how quickly she can find people. The only person she’s never been able to get is John, he uses his windy powers to obscure his scent so she can’t “see” him. He is her Marco Polo white whale. One day, John, one day. She and Vriska are terrifying during chicken, Vriska will plow full speed towards the opposing team and Terezi is ready to Throw Hands. The most intense games are between them and John and Dave, both John and Terezi are on top and they fuckin battle it out so hard that Dave and even Vriska start to get nervous on the bottom.

Sollux: Says the water feels slimy. “No shit,” Karkat tells him. “It’s water you fucking shitstain.” Sollux cheats during chicken by using his psiionics to keep Karkat on his shoulders which only makes Karkat mad because he’s terrified of falling in and holy shit Sollux I don’t care what you think your powers are doing I’m gonna fall in fuck fuck fuck. “No I got you” Sollux assures him. He does not. Karkat is not got. Oh well. Sollux mostly likes chilling on inner tubes, plural. He has a blue one and a red one because he’s too tall to fit in just one. “Get a bigger inner tube” Karkat complains. “Perhaps get one of those long, recliner like ones?” Kanaya suggests. No. Sollux will use two inner tubes. He will make the sacrifice of comfort for his aesthetic.
