he can be the christmas gift

When I explain cultural misappropriation to children, I use the example of The Nightmare Before Christmas.  

It’s effective because especially for children, who don’t have enough historical context to understand much of the concept, you can still fully grasp the idea.  

There was nothing wrong with Jack seeing the beauty and differences in Christmas town, it’s when he tried to take what is unique about Christmas town away from those it originally belonged to without understanding the full context of Christmas things is when everything went wrong.

When Jack tries to get the folk of Halloween town to make Christmas gifts for children, etc., children understand that the Halloween town folk do not have the full context for the objects they are making, and they are able to see that the direct repercussions and consequences are very harmful.

I was rereading the comic right before Jack and Shitty’s last game and Shitty says that if they win he gets a lifetime supply of Jack Zimmermann hugs. Well, obviously they lost. But, I was thinking about everything and… here you go.


Tater leaves the Christmas celebration after a slice of pie, bowing out by saying he needs to Skype with his mother. It gives the apartment the odd, after-Christmas feeling where nothing feels quite real. 

But it’s nice, just Jack and Bitty and Shitty in the kitchen, similar to how it was in the Haus. 

“Bits,” Jack says, exasperated. “You just cooked an entire Christmas dinner. By yourself. No, don’t say I helped, we all know a kindergartner could have helped just as much. Let me and Shitty do the dishes.”

Bitty sighs but relents, retreating to the living room. 

“You two are so good for each other it hurts,” Shitty says, shaking his head. “Honestly. Hosting Christmas dinner together. Bitty here for the holidays.”

“It’s great,” Jack says, barely catching a lovesick sigh before it escapes. “I’ve never… I don’t even know how to put it. But I’ve never. Any of this.”

“The great Jack Zimmermann, finally spilling deets,” Shitty says, elbowing him playfully where he’s drying dishes. “’I’ve never any of this’. Such detail. Such poetry.”

“Oh, shut up,” Jack gets out around a laugh. “Because you’re so generous with information about you and Lardo.”

“Look at us, all grown up and in secret, clandestine relationships. We’ve grown up so fast,” Shitty says, wiping away a fake tear. 

“Oh - that reminds me. I have something for you.” Jack wipes his soapy hands off and heads for the hall closet. 

“Hey! I thought -”

“It’s really small. Not a big thing.”

“This is coming from the person who bought his teammate an oven just because -”

“No, this is actually a small thing. It probably cost a dollar. Rounding up. And it can be for your birthday if you don’t want it to be a Christmas present.” Jack reenters the room with a tiny gift bag, which Shitty takes. 

“You’re ridiculous, Jack, I don’t know why - holy shit.” Shitty stops midsentence when he opens the gift. 

“Ah, I don’t know if you remember? But our last game -”

“I said that if we won I get a lifetime of Zimmermann hugs.” Shitty stares at the homemade, printed certificate. 

“Right, but we lost. But I know I haven’t been a great friend these past couple of months -” Shitty snorts. “- but you’re not any less important to me now. So. Yeah.”

“So you just gave me an infinite supply of hugs. In writing.” 

“We can get it notarized if you want.”

We can get it note - Good God, Zimmermann, how does Bitty put up with you?” Shitty says it in an exasperated tone, but his voice gets thick and he has to wipe his eyes a little. 

“You’ll have to ask him, because hell if I know.”

“I’m cashing in on one of these,” Shitty says, waving the certificate a little. “Right now.”

Imma stop there. Feel free to add on, that was insanely long and I might write an actual thing for this?

“It’s February 14th, Neil!”

Nicky was exasperated. It was obvious by the way he looked out of breath even though he was just standing there being rather noisey.

Neil scrunched up his nose. As much as he loved Nicky, he wouldn’t mind hearing him less right now. 

“What’s your point, Nicky?” 

The thing with Nicky, however, was that when you requested a straight answer, you instead got a show. 

Act one of this show was apparently looking around at the rest of the foxes and proclaiming, “Can you believe this kid?!” 

Andrew was coming from his appointment with Bee so wasn’t at the locker rooms yet for practice. Neil found himself silently hoping he would get there faster to shut Nicky up.

Usually everybody would just let Nicky go on his rant, half ignoring him and half egging him on. But when Neil looked past him, he realized that all the Foxes were actually paying attention. Their eyes were focused on Neil with a combination of pity, confusion, and general annoyance. 

Nicky was making a huge fuss now, not actually getting to the point but rather going around it. “Of all the days to not know-”

But Matt cut him off. Which was odd, because Matt usually didn’t cut Nicky off. 

“Neil….do you really not know what today is?”

mutantgurls  asked:

71 Klance pls

Keith waits anxiously for the blue and yellow lions to return. Coran had assured them that this space mall visit would be seamless, but Keith still worried. Last time they had just gone for some glass plates, and ended up stealing a cow and getting chased my the mall police. But Hunk and Lance had promised to stay together and keep Coran in line this time. Hunk wouldn’t go anywhere near the food court and Lance vowed not to swim in any fountains.

Keith was still skeptical. 

“Incoming”, Shiro sees the lions pick up on the castle’s sensors. The hangar doors whir and keith is bounding towards the entrance as the doors slide open. Hunk, Lance and Coran stride into the control room with victorious smiles.

“No problems this time?” Allura swivels on her chair.

“Absolutely none. I told you guys, we got this.” Lance brushes his sleeves and strikes a cocky pose with a smirk. Keith rolls his eyes. Why was he worried about this jerk?

“Here are those circuit routers you wanted, Pidge.” Hunk walks over and plonks the small equipment in Pidge’s lap. She looks up with a thankful smile. Her glasses glint in the artificial lighting.

“Excellent. I’m really excited about rover 2.0″ She enthusiastically unwraps them.

“I’ve got those new crystals for your control panel, princess!” Coran rushes over to Allura. His long legs carry him to her at alarming speed. He pulls out a clump of green crystals and slams them on the dashboard.

“Thank you, Coran. though you’ll have to help me install them.”

“Of course, of course! Also….” Coran’s moustache twitches with his knowing grin. He rummages in his pockets until he pulls out a delicate silver chain dotted with purple gems.

“I believe you requested something sparkly.” He begins to attach the bracelet around Allura’s wrist. She beams and holds up her hand to the light.

“Oh Coran! It’s wonderful!” 

“Nothing but the best for my favourite princess!” Coran proclaims. His bravado is knocked out of him when Allura sweeps him into a bruising hug. 

“Oh, that reminds me…” 

Keith’s focus is pulled away from the sweet scene at the sound of Lance’s hushed voice. It’s just the two of them left standing by the entrance now. Keith turns to see Lance digging in his own pocket. His thin brows are scrunched in concentration and he bits his bottom lip. His hands pat down his legs, chest and sides, until he feels whatever he’s searching for in his jacket pocket. He smiles.

“Here, I got something for you.” His voice is still quiet so only keith can feel. Keith steps in close. Something? For him? He tries to think of if he asked for anything. Maybe it’s a joke gift. Like scissors to cut his mullet or something. They’d both laugh at that. That’s what friends did right?

Instead, Lance pulls out a small metal object. He presses a button and a blade flicks out. He rotates his wrist in the light, which creates pearlescent rainbows along the knife’s metal surface. keith’s eyes widen.

“It’s made with some cool alien rendering technology. Coran will talk your ear off about it if you really want to know. I just thought it was pretty.” Lance huffs out a laugh. he tosses it to keith, who deftly catches it.

Keith admires the blade, the weight in the palm of his hand. It is very pretty, and compact so he can keep it hidden on him at all times.

“This is for me?” He exhales. 

“Yeah.” Lance steps close. He points to a mark on the handle. “I think that’s like a secret toothpick or something.” He laughs. Keith gently snaps the knife closed. His stomach flutters.

“…Why?” He asks again in disbelief. “Why did you get this for me?”

Keith… has rarely gotten presents before. If he was lucky, Shiro would be around on his birthday and would try his best to give him something before he left for christmas, but those were the only moments Keith could remember celebrating those occasions. Christmases were spent with family… which he never had. And birthdays were usually shared with friends… but those were also in short supply.

Keith can list all the gifts he’s ever received on one hand. 

“No reason,” Lance lazily shrugs with his hands deep in his pockets. His smile is lazy, and he hums some melody as he saunters off to his room. 

Keith bites his lip and smiles to himself. 


He sleeps with it underneath his pillow. 

anonymous asked:

Can you do a blurb where Gemma and Anne don't like Harry's girlfriend and think she's using him for money. Harry doesn't know and then finds out and is really upset about it

“’ello?”

“Harry, how many times do I have to tell you?”

“That I’m the fittest bloke you’ve ever laid eyes on?” She could hear the smirk through the speaker of her phone, knowing that he knew damn well what she was talking about. “As many times as you want.”

“You know what I’m talking about.” She wasn’t angry, per se- just overwhelmed, for lack of better words, at how much he spoiled her. “Just because I remarked how nice a bracelet was last week doesn’t mean I wanted it.” She sighed, the sparkle of the diamond on said bracelet catching the sun from where she had it laid on the kitchen table in front of her. “And if I did happen to want it, I could buy it for myself.”

“Know you could.” He didn’t sound the slightest bit phased because she put up an argument every time. “Just wanted to spoil my girl,‘s that really such a crime?”

“Yes.” She was quick to answer. “I don’t want you thinking I’m only here for the gifts and the money.”

“I know you’re not.” He shook his head, despite knowing she couldn’t possibly see him. “But it’s my way of showing you how much you mean to me.”

Admittedly, it warmed her heart how much thought and love was behind each and every gift, none of them were ever just a splurge of money because he felt like he had to buy her over.

“And I’m really thankful, but I honestly don’t need gifts to see that you’re genuine about us.” Her voice was much softer now. “Just- promise me you’ll stop spending your money on me all the time? I really do appreciate it but it would make me much happier to see you spend it on one of your ridiculously expensive scarves or something.”

“A’right I promise.” He sighed jokingly, as if she was asking a lot off him. “I hope you know I’m only going to go crazy on your birthday and at Christmas, though.”

“I guess I can live with that.” She reasoned and he chuckled.

He was one of only a few others sitting in the departures lounge of the airport and he was thankful for his own space in the corner, happier to bicker with his girlfriend than to make small talk with anyone else. After speaking for a little while longer, the voice on the speaker announced his flight, notifying him that there was only five minutes until the gates closed.

“I’ve got to go love but I’ll see you later on.” He stood up, throwing his carry on over his shoulder and making his way towards his gate.

“Ok, call me when you land safe.”

“Will do.”

“I love you.”

“I love you too.”

//

On her way to the airport, (y/n) decided she could kill a bit of time by calling in with Gemma as it would beat sitting on an uncomfortable metal bench for god knows how long until Harry’s flight came in. She also figured she could pick up his charger that he mentioned leaving there last week.

Having only been with Harry for just under 10 months, she had met Anne and Robin four times, Gemma three and Des just once. There was the whole formal ‘meet the parents’ meal a few months in and, afterwards, it was a rare occasion that she was able to travel with Harry to see them on his time off- she did have her own work commitments after all.

Despite that, she wasn’t entirely nervous about meeting with Gemma again; she seemed easy enough to talk to when Harry was present so she was sure going solo wouldn’t make a huge difference. After pulling up to the apartment block and being allowed to walk on ahead through by the security guard who had come to know who she was, she made it up to the fourth floor in a matter of minutes and gave a light knock on the oak-wood door.

“Hi!” She greeted the female clone of her boyfriend as soon as the door opened. “I was on my way to the airport to get Harry but figured I may as well drop in to say hello and pick up his charger for him.”

“Couldn’t he have done that once he landed?” She tried to ignore the bitter tone to her voice, deciding instead to laugh it off.

“He’s usually too tired to function after a long flight.” She laughed.

“I know.” She gave her a pointed look. “He’s been my brother longer than he’s been your boyfriend, y’know.”

This time, she decided to stay silent and chose not to address the bitterness in her voice. Without any further word, Gemma trudged back through her flat. Not knowing if she was welcome to follow or not, (y/n) hovered awkwardly by the doorway before deciding to just follow her anyway.

She could hear her talking to someone in the kitchen, but couldn’t make out – and didn’t really have an interest in- what they were saying.

“Hi, Anne.” She gave her a warm smile once realising who the voice belonged to on her arrival to the kitchen. “It’s lovely to see you again.”

“Thanks.” She gave her a tight lipped smile, not bothering to maintain any eye contact.

“I’ll just get that charger then-“

“New bracelet?” Anne nodded to the diamond link on her arm; the brand new one that had only arrived from Harry mere hours ago.

“Oh.” She looked down at it. “Yeah.”

“How’d you afford that?” The harshness in Gemma’s voice was painfully obvious now and (y/n) didn’t miss how her mother winced slightly at the tone she had certainly not been brought up to use, but she didn’t bother reprimanding her.

“Harry got it for me.”

“Of course he did.” She laughed a dry, bitter laugh. “Just like everything else you own.”

She was taken aback to say the least and couldn’t find any words to answer with, because what exactly could she answer with?

“What she means is that you seem to be getting an awful lot off Harry lately.” Anne tried to ease the awkward atmosphere in the room but didn’t back down on defending her son from someone she thought was taking advantage of him.

“I don’t-“

“I mean, if it’s not him taking you out everywhere and paying the bill every time, it’s you getting these expensive gifts off him.”

“I don’t ask him to.” She was making a poor effort at defending herself against the two strongly opinionated women, sounding nothing short of timid and nervous. “I don’t like when he buys me things all the time.”

“Sure you don’t.” Gemma rolled her eyes. “Listen, Harry’s an adult and neither of us two can tell him who or what he spends his hard earned money on. But we just wanted to make it clear that we can see you for exactly the way you are and we’ll never accept someone into the family who takes advantage of him.”

“Gem-“

“No, Mum.” She snapped. “You said it yourself. Harry only thinks he’s in love and she’s taking advantage of that.”

She looked to Anne for confirmation that she hadn’t said such a thing after being so nice when Harry was there, but when her head stayed bowed down, eyes focused on the table, she took a deep breath and stuttered out a quiet “I’m sorry.” Before bolting to her car where she would be able to let out the hurt she was feeling.

//

Landed safe. Just getting my bags xx

In the café x

“Boo.” (y/n) jumped, startled from where she was in deep thought and didn’t have to fake the smile on her face when the familiar feeling of her boyfriend’s arms were engulfing her. “Well, somebody certainly missed me.” He laughed, placing a kiss on her forehead.

“I did.” She mumbled into his shirt.

“C’mon, let’s get home, yeah?” He suggested.

“Do you want a coffee before we go?” She asked, pulling a note from her purse that would cover the price of a coffee each.

“I’d love one, actually.” She stopped him when his hand went to the pocket of his jeans where he kept loose change.

“I’ll get it.”

“Love, ‘s only a coffee.” He smirked. “Am I not even allowed to treat you to that now?”

“Not when I’m fully capable of buying it myself Harry!” Her volume had increased slightly, but not to the point where she was drawing any unwanted attention to them. “I do have a job, you know.”

“I’m aware.” He spoke slowly, trying to read her expression.

“And could you please take this,” She pulled the bracelet off her wrist. “back? I’m sick of you throwing away all your hard earned money on me.”

“Whoa, whoa, whoa.” He placed his hands on her shoulders, forcing her to stay right where she was until he figured out what the hell was going on in her head. “What’s this all about? Where did you take this notion?”

“I’m not taking advantage of you.”

“No one said you were, poppet.”

Everyone says I am!”

“Well I don’t care what everyone says,” He shrugged. “I know you’re not.”

“You only-“ She took a shuddering breath in. “You only think you love me.” His face fell at her statement. “And I’m taking advantage of that.”

“No this isn’t-“ He shook his head. “This isn’t you. Is this the fans? I’ve told you not to look at what they’re saying.”

“No, it’s not the fans.”

“Who, then?”

She didn’t want to tell him; didn’t want to be the reason for a possible argument with his mother and sister. But the desperate look on his face made her want to take away all his worries.

“It doesn’t-“

“Who, (y/n)?” He was more stern now.

“Your mum and Gemma just pointed out a few things.” She swallowed. “I don’t blame them for thinking how they did.” He looked confused, angry and hurt that two of the people he cared most about were saying such things about one of the other people he cared deeply for. “It could be true-“

“It’s bullshit.” He asserted. “Complete and utter bullshit.”

“Harry-“

“Let’s go home.”

//

Much later that night, Harry crawled into bed after having a shower and could tell by how his girlfriend was breathing that she wasn’t asleep, but was still facing away from him. He decided to give her space but laid one hand on her hip, tracing mindless little patterns.

“I called mum earlier.” She didn’t respond with words but he seen how her shoulders tensed up. “I made sure she knew how wrong that was of them to say such things about you.” Still no response. “She just worries sometimes but I’ll not let them speak to you like that again.”

“You didn’t have to do that.” Her voice was cracked with the emotion that had built up inside her all day.

“It’s because I love you.” He placed a kiss on her shoulder blade. “And I know I do.”

johnlocked-ianthony  asked:

Hello Steph! Could you recommend some (preferably fluffy) fics where Sherlock experiments on John. I read "A Terrific Soporific" today and really liked it! So something like that?

Hi Lovely! 

Absolutely! I’m adding all kinds of versions of experimentation, so I hope these are to your liking!

SHERLOCK EXPERIMENTS ON JOHN

  • A Terrific Soporific by antietamfalls (T, 11,269 w.) Sherlock, a long-time sufferer of insomnia, is forced to share a bed with John at a hotel while on a case. To his astonishment, he finds that spending the night next to John helps him sleep and becomes determined to maneuver himself back into John’s bed.

  • Unmapped by 221b_hound (E, 2,385 w.) – Sherlock wishes to explore more about his desires. To this end, he conducts a kissing experiment in the afternoon of Christmas Day. John is all for experiments of this nature. They are going to learn a thing or two together. Part 9 of Unkissed

  • Unrestrained by 221b_hound (E, 5,377 w.) – Another experiment in desire - it’s not just what about what Sherlock likes to experience, but what he likes to do. It turns out that it’s much more about who he likes to do it to, and the way John’s desire has become bound up with restraint. Part 11 of Unkissed

  • Thermodynamics Series by entanglednow (T to E, 16,300 w. over 4 works) – In which there’s no heating and there’s a dead owl in Sherlock’s bed. Sherlock conducts an experiment in John’s bed.

  • To Sleep, Perchance to Smother Your Flatmate with a Pillow by Linpatootie (G, 5,308 w.) – Sherlock wants to conduct a sleep study of sorts. John contemplates smothering him with a pillow. Part 1 of Two Coffees One Black One with Sugar Please

  • Bed-Sharing Between Flatmates by testosterone_tea (T, 5,053 w.) – 5 times Sherlock had an excuse to share John’s bed, and the one time he didn’t need one.

  • You fit me, Sherlock Holmes by orphan_account (G, 10,077 w.) – An unfortunate series of events leads to John accepting being a part of Sherlock’s study in physical intimacy. As the days pass by, John realizes he might be in for more than he bargained for. He doesn’t entirely mind.

  • Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder by cypress_tree (E, 10,669 w.) – John helps Sherlock with an experiment: for an entire month, they are not allowed to touch each other and must remain at least one metre apart at all times. {{SOOOO GOOD}}

  • The Genetic Algorithm by Bitenomnom (NR, 3,786 w.) – Some problems defy the usage of cold, clean-cut linear logic. It is impossible to devise a way to take steps that ultimately lead exactly to an optimal answer. Sherlock believes John Watson is one of those problems. Part 28 of Mathematical Proof

  • Nightfall by CKLizzy (T, 8,001 w.) – Awoken by nightmares, John and Sherlock seek each other’s company at night. They find more than either of them knew they were missing. Part 1 of Solace {{more “exploring each other” than experimenting}}

  • On a Sunday Morning by SD_Ryan for jimmytiberius (G, 3,136 w.) – Sherlock has a little problem. He can’t stop obsessing about John Watson.

  • Paired Comparison Experiment Notes, Trials 1-24 by Bitenomnom  (NR, 1198 w.) – Sherlock plays footsie with John for an experiment. Continuation of The Paired Comparison Model.

  • Vatican Cameos by ALLthe-doms (T, 1k+ w., FFNet) – Quick story about the beginning of the phrase Vatican Cameos and the practice that went into perfecting it.

  • Who Else Would I Call? by Lastew (K+, 3k+ w., FFNet) – John sees Sherlock repeatedly entering a number into his phone, but when he questions Sherlock about it, Sherlock is evasive. What’s going on here?

  • The Perfect Place by SilverSmile (K+, 1K+ w., FFNet) – Sherlock attempts to find the perfect place to sleep, but his little experiment proves to be far more difficult than expected.

  • It’s an Experiment by YupThatsMySock (K+, 1k+ w., FFNet) – Sherlock kidnaps John’s jumpers for “an experiment”. John decides it’s only fair to kidnap the skull.

  • Unspoken by PipMer (G, 2770 w.) – Sherlock wanted to test a hypothesis. About John. He wanted a question answered that he couldn’t just ask, at least not under normal conditions, because John would never tell him the truth about that.

  • Last Christmas by Mazarin221b (T, 3,911w.) – That Earth-shaking revelation, then, leads to a problem, and one that Sherlock realizes should be solved quickly, before John’s dates turn into girlfriends or boyfriends, because sometimes girlfriends or boyfriends can turn into wives or husbands while your back is turned. Every time John hums happily at the mirror as he shaves, splashes on a little gift cologne Mrs. Hudson bought him for Christmas, Sherlock is drawn back to that night by the fire, and the way John’s touch had made the world stand still. {{LOVE this one. Not really “experimenting” but more “recreating a situation to make something else happen}}

  • Problematic by MrsNoggin (E, 6,164 w.) – Sherlock Holmes is fine with problems. More than fine. Problems are his job. More than his job. Problems are his life. Sherlock really wants to ask John something. Only, he’s not sure what… 

JOHN EXPERIMENTS ON SHERLOCK

  • Manipulation by sixbynine (K+, 2k+ w. FFNet) – John Watson is not as unobservant as Sherlock thinks, nor is he above using what he knows. Even if it is just to make sure Sherlock eats and sleeps. {{John is the one experimenting in this one :D}}

  • Never Have I Ever by Hannelore-Grace (T, 2k+, FFNet) – In which the Yarders, Sherlock, and John play the time-honored drinking game. {{Everyone tries to get Sherlock drunk}}

  • It’s a Crime Scene! by Ttime42 (K, 1k+, FFNet) – John tries to coax Sherlock out of a bad mood at a crime scene. 

  • An Experiment in Empathy Series by belovedmuerto (G to T, 62 397w across 13 stories) –  In which John is an empath, Sherlock is Sherlock, and an epic bromance happens. In the aftermath of The Great Game, John creates an unexpected bond between himself and Sherlock. Now they have to learn how to deal with it. John is better at this than Sherlock is. {{I LOVE this SERIES SO MUCH.}}

  • An Experiment in Apathy Series by belovedmuerto (G to E, 28,701 w. over 13 stories, WIP) – John and Sherlock navigate their complicated relationship. I adore this series, and it feels complete where it leaves off :)

BOTH EXPERIMENT ON THEMSELVES or EACH OTHER AT THE SAME TIME

  • The Kissing Disease by cottonballz_of_death (E, 30,856w.) – John brings home a boyfriend, shocking Sherlock, who long ago gave up hope that his straight flatmate would ever take a romantic interest in him. In a bid to reconnect with John, he tries to infect himself with a “harmless” virus. Neither of them is prepared for the emotional fallout that results.

  • I’m Pretty Sure This Changes Shit by cwb (E, 7,672 w.) – Sherlock finds increasingly ridiculous ways to get John to patch him up after hurting himself.

  • Ravish Me by amalnahurriyeh (E, 10,025 w.) – Sherlock is experimenting with patterns of wear on lipstick in daily encounters. John is going to go insane.

  • The Great Sex Olympics of 221B by XistentialAngst (E, 58,611 w.) – John Watson thinks Sherlock Holmes should admit that he, Watson, is more of an expert on sex than Sherlock is. But Sherlock refuses to concede the point. He comes up with an experiment plan that will resolve the issue. The results will determine who wins the prize. But sometimes even the best thought-out scientific study has unexpected consequences.

  • The Cuddle Sutra by aceofhearts61 (G, 3,218 w.) – In which Sherlock orders the Cuddle Sutra; he and John try out some of the positions. Part 20 of A Love with No Name

  • A Study in Intimacy by doodle (T, 5,183 w.) – People don’t touch Sherlock Holmes, not like they touch other people. Then he meets John Watson.

  • 34 Minutes by bendingsignpost (T, 4,698 w.) – An experiment in eye contact.

“AFTERMATH” OF EXPERIMENTS

  • Living In Fear by Lady Sam Mallory (T, 4K+, FFNet) – Missing Scene for Hounds of the Baskerville. John suffers from massive PTSD episodes upon their return from Dartmoor. {{The aftermath of Sherlock’s experiment rather than a running experiment}}

  • In The Wake by Ambikai (K+, 2k+ w. , FFNet) – After returning from Baskerville, Sherlock and John deal with the aftermath: unsure of where they sit with one another.

OTHER SEMI-RELATED FICS

  • Equilibrium by augustbird (M, 12,351 w.) – At Baskerville, John is infected by a virus that turns him into a genius. But when the infection progresses into neurodegeneration, it’s a race against time to save himself. {{Sherlock’s experimenting to save John}}

  • A Symphony of Chemical Reactions by what_alchemy  (T, 2,351 w.) – Cooking’s just chemistry and time management.

  • The Engine by stitchy (T, 8,294 w.)Shortly after the events of His Last Vow, Sherlock has an opportunity to revisit the night of A Study in Pink and get some perspective on the destiny of he and John’s relationship.

  • A Quiet Murmuration by cathedral_carver (T, 4,684 w.) – Just pay me back with one thousand kisses. {{Not really “experimenting” more than “Sherlock is paying John back”. Still fantastic.}}

  • Too Visible by chappysmom (K+, 23k+ w. FFNet) – With his gift of being invisible, John has always worried about being locked away in an experimental government lab. Baskerville is quite literally John’s worst nightmare—and the hound has nothing to do with it. It’s all Sherlock’s fault, but will he realize that? Sequel to “Invisible” and “Still Invisible.” {{This was one of the first AU’s I’ve ever read, and I still love it. Read “Invisible” to make sense of this one}}

  • Experiments in Trust by oleanderhoney (T, 5k+ w., FFNet) – “I can glance at a dead body and instantly know their life, and where they work, and who their lover is, but with you I can’t tell what it means when you look at me and your eyes are so dark they look brown even though they are blue. Or what it means when your hand starts to shake at certain crime scenes, and yet can be as solid as iron after you kill a man…”

  • You Remind Me of a Man by columbine-and-asphodel (M, 17k+w., FFNet) – Sherlock is a living human experiment. John, an android medicinal ethics monitor, reviews the place that’s been experimenting on Sherlock and is thrown by what he finds. Inspired by but no spoilers for The Hounds of Baskerville. {{This is an abandoned WiP from years ago, sadly, but what is here is very good}}

  • 33 by Indigo Blue.x (K+, 2k+ w., FFNet)  “I haven’t made a zombie,” Sherlock says scathingly, which would be more convincing if there were not a zombie in the flat.

  • A Study in Linguistics by rizandace (T, 12k+w., FFNet) – Sherlock Holmes and John Watson had their own language. It was a language of few words and minute facial expressions, and John had learned that it was nearly the only way to have an honest conversation with his eccentric flat mate.

  • A collection of seemingly unrelated things by Volitan (T, 3k+w., FFNet) – An Axe Murderer, Five Stitches, a Banana and a New Pair of Shoes… They’re a seemingly random collection of things, unless Sherlock and John are involved, and then the items as a collective make complete sense.

  • LHR-HNL by scullyseviltwin (E, 35,066 w.) – In need of an endangered flora sample, Sherlock and John must make a trip to an unexpected destination.

  • The Semantics of Crop Circle Formation: a case study by Sherlock Holmes [unpublished] bycanolacrush (M, 41,710 w.) – “Look at these photographs,” I said, gesturing to the wall of crop circles. “What do you observe?”“Crop circles,” John replied.“Obvious. What else?”“Are…are those intestines surrounding them?”“Yes. The majority are bovine and ovine in origin. The farmers who have acquired these crop circles in their fields have also had a tenth of their livestock murdered and arranged thus.”“Why?” John said, presumably in a rhetorical fashion. I detest rhetorical questions. “That is what I must find out, John.”

  • The Dying Genius by JuweWright (K, 8k+w., FFNet) – John’s POV. Mrs Hudson comes to John’s clinic with alarming news: Sherlock has contracted a terrible illness and might be dying…

  • Dying Changes Everything by whitchry9 (K+, 1k+, FFNet) – Sherlock is having an existential crisis and wants to have a near death experience like John did to gain some perspective. “Shoot me John!” he insisted, gesturing to himself. John just looked at him. “Are you completely mad?” {{Unhappyish ending, TW for gunshot}}

  • Six Months by dreamergirl090 (T, 16K+ w., FFNet) – John doesn’t show up to a crime scene. Lestrade wonders if John and Sherlock had a row. Molly knows it’s more complicated than that. {{TW Major Character Death and hardcore angst!!! Sherlock is experimenting throughout the fic}}

Feel free to add some of your own, y’all!

anonymous asked:

Have you any happy Snape headcons? Pretty please?


  1. -   Severus didn’t have a familiar as a student, but when Severus found one of the post owls on the ground by the lake with a broken wing, his instant reaction was to scoop him into his robes, and run full pelt to Hagrid’s hut.
    -   Isocrates, the owl, then adopted Severus as his owner.
    -   Severus nicknamed the owl Socks, and visited him every day during his recuperation.
    -   Socks was in mourning when Severus left Hogwarts – but was overjoyed when Severus returned as a teacher.  When the new Potions Master was miserable in the run up to Christmas during his first year of teaching, Socks took to sitting in his classroom instead of roosting in the tower. 


  2. -   After realising that Severus didn’t receive any birthday or Christmas presents in his first year, Lucius Malfoy ensured that he was sent an array of gifts every year for both events.
    -   Similarly, Severus’ 17th birthday watch came from Lucius Malfoy.
    -   Severus used to joke that it was more expensive than the rest of his belongings put together.
    -   He wasn’t actually joking.


  3. -   Severus can sing.  He doesn’t – not often – but he can. 
    -   He made an exception for Narcissa’s thirtieth birthday, and ever since, it’s become a tradition that he’ll serenade her and Lucius whilst they dance. 
    -   …he’s spent the past 9 years trying to wriggle out of the arrangement.


  4. -   He has six tattoos.  Two are Muggle, four are magical.
    -   He does not count the Dark Mark as amongst their number.


  5. -   He’s been published in 3 different journals, with thirty seven articles to his name.
    -   He wants to make it forty publications before he turns the big four oh.
    -   He’s got sixty three patents at the Ministry.
    -   All of his work is posted under the same pseudonym.
    -  When he goes to Potions conferences, others comment on how he has never published or patented any work.
    -  Severus takes great pride in knowing that when he dies, the pseudonym will dissolve and reveal his true name.
    -  It took nine months to create that spell, which delayed his first publication by half a year.
    -  It was worth it.
    -  And the spell became his second patent.


  6. -   He holds the record for the highest ever exam results at both OWL and NEWT level for Potions.
    -   Each year he holds his breath when the results are out.  He’s not sure if he’ll be pleased or miserable when his record is finally broken by one of his students.


  7. -  He has a Potions Mastery.
    -  It’s one of his proudest achievements.
    -  His certificate is framed, and hangs in his office, opposite his desk.
    -  Having it means that he can brew under licence, which enables him to brew for the Hospital Wing.
    -  Before Voldemort returned, he would brew for St Mungo’s in his spare time.


  8. -   His greatest ambition was to fly unaided.
    -   He managed it.


  9. -   On Halloween, Minerva transforms into her animagus form and sits in his lap all evening, purring, and fussing, and forcing him to pet her.
    -   He pretends he doesn’t know it’s her. 
    -   The next day, she pretends that it never happened.


  10. -   Flitwick took him to Ollivander’s to buy a new wand when he was 24.  The Charms teacher had been right; he’d fundamentally changed, and he needed a new wand. 
    -   He asked Ollivander to charm the new wand’s appearance so nobody would realise.


  11. -   The first time Slytherin won the House Cup under his watch, the dungeons partied for a full 24 hours, with Severus celebrating as if he was one of the students.
    -   After his victory in 91, he made the mistake of going ‘double or quits’ in 92. 
    -   92 was the year Gryffindor finally won the House Cup.
    -   He sulked for the entire summer.
    -   Severus and Minerva constantly gamble against each other. 
    -   On one memorable occasion, Severus had to wear tartan briefs for a full month, and Minerva delighted in asking him to prove he was adhering to the bet.
    -   After that, he refused to gamble anything other than money.
    -   He’s not a big fan of wizarding chess, mostly because both Minerva and Dumbledore wipe the floor with him.
    -   He is, however, a card shark.  With his Legilimency and Occlumency skills, nobody at Hogwarts can defeat him. 


  12. -   He can hold his drink, but always gets caught out by the potency of the punch at Christmas parties.
    -   He’s slept with four members of staff. 
    -   There is a direct correlation between the last two points.

i see your “neil takes over the foxes” headcanons but since thats canonically dan’s dream it makes me feel a little uneasy putting neil in that role so i give to you another option: neil starting a charity for underprivileged kids to get to play exy

  • it starts with neil volunteering teaching kids exy at an after school community center program
  • but then he starts noticing this girl who always watches the practices from the bleachers but never plays
  • so one day while the kids are cleaning up neil goes over and talks to her and is like “you know we could always use more players, the more the merrier”
  • and she explains that she would but she couldnt afford the gear. or at least she’s too worried to ask her parents about the price
  • and neil gets really sad and mopey about it because everyone should be able to try something they’re interested in
  • eventually andrew is like oh my god just buy the girl a damn racquet im so sick of you being annoying about this
  • so neil does. he gets the gear and he realizes by now that she probably cant or wont except it as a gift so he decides to get some extras as loaners for other kids so she wont feel bad about it
  • and this inspires him so he starts talking to some local youth groups about donating racquets and armor like around christmas and stuff
  • and soon the other OG foxes and some of neil’s pro friends hear about it and are like yo how can we help
  • so he gets like memorabilia signed, a racquet by kevin and posters by matt and thea and jerseys by jean and jeremy and goalie shit signed by andrew and stuff and has it all auctioned off for insanely high prices and uses all the money to give low income and at risk kids gear and donations to schools and community centers and stuff who want to build exy courts
  • and allison might not be pro but shes rich af so she helps out by making matching deals like if we raise x amount at this fundraiser she’ll match it by a certain amount
  • and it soon becomes a Thing, he’s suddenly not just known as the smart mouth who makes reporters cry hes now the smart mouth who is mean to reporters but apparently has a heart of gold because now he’s a major philanthropist
  • and he just loves being able to do this so much?? so it gets bigger and bigger so he visits the childrens hospital aaron and katelyn work at to make the kids smile and he talks to physical therapists about how practicing exy drills can help patients (kevin did it so could others) and gives them whatever they need for that
  • and he gets contacts with a bunch of social workers and foster care departments and works with juvie systems to get exy programs there with andrew in mind
  • and through renee he gets americorps and programs who help kids at risk for gang violence and for dan he finds programs for minors who because of economic reasons get into sex work and for matt drug prevention programs
  • and after he retires from being pro he does this full time and it feels good
  • but he never stops teaching at his community center

✌🏼 sup. This is Morgan Rielly. He is a 6’ 1” 22-year old Canadian defenseman who wears #44 for the Toronto Maple Leafs. His most common nickname is Mo. He was drafted 5th overall in 2012 and his first year in the NHL was in the 2013-’14 season. He has represented Canada in 6 international competitions including IIHF World Junior Championship in 2013 (4th) and IIHF World Championship in 2014 and 2016 (5th & gold). He represented Canada as a part of Team North America during the 2016 World Cup of Hockey.

Mo is kind of a big deal. He’s lowkey good because he’s not flashy but the management and coaches really love him because he’s such a great player, leader, and person overall. Last April, he signed a $30 million 6-year contract with the Leafs (so he gets around $5 mill a year). He currently has an A in Toronto (no one has a C), and a whole lot of people really want Mo to be the captain next year because he has shown amazing leadership qualities and just generally cares a lot about the team.

His main bond on the team is with fellow defenseman Jake Gardiner who is American. There’s videos of Mo from Jake’s instagram doing various things. Mainly all shopping - whether at the mall or at the grocery store. In one of them Jake is too busy filming Mo and teammate Nazem Kadri that he walks backwards straight into a trash can. In another one, Mo juggles random objects at the grocery store, and in another Mo gets a cake just for himself. These videos are very cute and bromancy. One time they were in a studio and (horribly, ohmygod it was so bad) sang Little Things by One Direction together.

Mo is such a sweetheart and a giant nerd ass. He got all of his teammates thoughtful gifts for Christmas and he’s the self-proclaimed dad/father figure of the Leafs “at the ripe age of 22”. He also did a cooking thing because he lives by himself and he only knows how to cook chicken so he wanted to expand his cooking skills. Lord help him though. He’s also a horrible dancer but dances anyway even if it is super cringey. He spent his time this Christmas with sick children (it was his first Christmas in Toronto). He’s so soft and he really loves his mom and dog which he posts on insta often about them. He sticks up for his teammates especially when the media asks about scoring droughts and people not doing so well, and he credits them with their success and never talks himself up like ever. Everyone loves Mo

@juminzenweek  Day 3 | First Kiss | Discoveries

Jumin speaks on things he has discovered about Zen.

“When he is not talking, he is singing, when he tries to be quiet I can hear him thinking, I am sure he can speak underwater”

“I have seen him drop food on the floor and say five-second rule, then eat the food, I do not believe there is such a primitive rule”

“He tells me to leave him alone, So I walk away then he says I do not pay attention to him,  I am quite confused”

“He plays the piano for me while I sing to him, apparently he likes my singing,  I am a business executive, not a singer”

“He does not like expensive gifts,  So I learned how to make fish shaped bread from the vendor outside his basement apartment,  I burnt my fingers and the bread, He called me a dense jerk but still ate them like they were the most delicious meal he had ever tasted”

“He talks in his sleep,  again, I swear he can speak underwater.”

“He looks at me like I am the only person in this world,  at first,  I use to think I had something on my face but now I am accustomed to his expressive nature”

“Zen purchased a festive sweater for me at Christmas,  I could not wear it for long as he was laughing at me and the sweater was very itchy.”

“He use to throw tantrums,  I never knew the reasons,  so I left him to better organize his thoughts,  I have since learned this is not the best thing to do  unless you want something thrown at you”

“Did you know that cheese comes in a can? I did not know this, he brings home most unusual food at times… I wonder if Cat food mousse can be put in a can….”

“He took me to a Supermart?, Super grocer?,   A place where commoners buy food,  they did not have a personal shopper there and I had to put items in a cart with wheels by myself.  It is not an experience I would like to repeat”.

“He punches my arm for no reason then laughs,  I guess this is a commoner male bonding ritual,  I prefer a handshake”

“I pet his hair once and told him it is almost as beautiful as Elizabeth the 3rds,   he stomped away using inappropriate language,  I still do not understand why as Elizabeth has beautiful hair”

I am learning to adapt to his quirks and have come a fair way,  each day is a new discovery.  It is not that I am ignorant or cruel it is because I have never known any other way but my own.

He teaches me his life through his beautiful eyes although slightly barbaric at times,  I will still strive to better understand this man who has chosen to walk by my side.

Jumin Han.

[Day 1: Something old // Something new // Something borrowed]


  • It’s coming close to Christmas and after months of trying to figure out what he should get as a gift for Adam, Ronan still has nothing
  • He drives himself insane trying to find something special to show Adam how much he means to him
  • One night, him and Adam are lying on the couch in the sitting room of the Barns, watching some cheesy Christmas movie Ronan can’t remember the name of because all he can focus on is Adam
  • He notices Adam shivering, despite Ronan’s arm hanging over his shoulder
  • Ronan teases Adam for never wearing anything other than “that goddamn coca cola shirt”
  • but he secretly thinks Adam looks adorable in it
  • “you do realize its the middle of winter, right??”
  • But Adam was ridiculously stubborn; “your point?”
  • “You’re gonna die of hypothermia if you don’t put on a sweater, idiot”
  • And that’s when it hits him
  • He waits until Adam has gone back to college and then, one night, he dreams him the perfect gift
  • It’s not long before Adam comes home for the holidays. The Barns looks beautiful, lit up by fairy lights and the most amazing Christmas tree Adam has ever seen in his life.
  • but the best thing about it is seeing his giant Irish boyfriend standing in the porch, waiting for him
  • They spend most of the holidays together in bed.
  • Neither of them could be happier. Christmas eve is spent with Opal, Declan, Matthew and the rest of the gangsey at the Barns
  • It’s not until everyone else goes home and after they put Opal to bed that Ronan sits down with Adam to give him his gift
  • and they’re super awkward about it, the both of them blushing and nervous
  • and it’s obvious that Ronan wrapped it; there’s tape everywhere
  • “you didn’t have to”
  • “yes I did now shut up and open it”
  • it doesn’t take Adam long to realize what it is. He takes in the feel of it. It’s so soft, it reminds him of holding Ronans hands in his own. He takes it into his hands and lifts it up to look at it, a smile creeping onto his face.
  • Ronan had given him a big, red, coca cola sweater
  • “Ronan… did you dream this?”
  • nodding, he smiles. “to keep you warm”

You know those toy dogs that make barking sounds and wag their tails if you pet them and come to you if you clap? Lucien totally bought one of those for Damien for Christmas one year. He tried to play it real cool like, “I figured since we can’t get a real one this would be the next best thing. Plus, you don’t have to take this one out to pee in the middle of the night.” but he couldn’t hold back his smile when he saw how happy his dad was.

And Damien truly was overjoyed. It might have been a toy, but it was so cute, and it was such a thoughtful gift. Damien definitely made a note to get Lucien something extra special for his next birthday.

A Day Like No Other - Masquerade Extra

I’ve been inspired by all the birthday messages so I decided to write some birthday fluff for my favourite mafia boys to thank everyone. (And for my friend’s birthday too😂) It was so fun to write them again.

Yuuri wakes up slowly, unaware of the chill outside the warm plush blankets, oblivious of the snowfall beyond the curtains because of the distracting heat next to him.

The ceiling is foreign, but the fact that it’s foreign is all too familiar to him. All of his surroundings apart from the chest he’s sleeping against and the hand playing in his hair are different. The four poster bed, the satin sheets and the baroque furniture. Nothing is the same, but yet everything is as it should be.

He’s only spent one mere night in this specific hotel room, and yet it still manages to feel like home more than any permanent fixture ever could.

Yuuri knows exactly what day it is, and for once, he doesn’t get up and get dressed without ceremony, he doesn’t put on layer upon layer and conceal a piece of himself with each garment. He doesn’t check and load his weapons or make sure his knives are sharp, he doesn’t conceal them with a jacket and a metaphorical mask that’s heavier than any weightless thing should ever be.

Today used to be just another day to fight, just another day to die, just another day to make it through alive.

Instead, he curls into Victor’s chest and listens to the hum Victor gives in reply because he’s awake too. There’s so such thing as sleeping in when their time together is limited.

It’s the 25th of December, and for the first time ever, it feels like Christmas to Yuuri, and with the humming vibrating in his ear and the kisses Victor is nuzzling into the top of his hair, he finally knows why.

“Merry Christmas to me.” Yuuri sighs out loud, and before he knows it his arm his holding onto Victor tighter, his very own gift that will always be more than any human deserves.

And even as Victor is hugging Yuuri tighter to his chest in return, he can feel Victor’s breath pause in his hair.

“Why do you say that?” And the very first words Victor Nikiforov whine to him on the first Christmas they’re together are a whine, pouted lips pressing against his head. He can hear Victor’s real question. ‘Aren’t you forgetting something?’

The most terrifying man of the underworld- someone capable of stealing the moon - is hugely sentimental, he’s a romantic, he likes presents on valentines and to celebrate anniversaries and any date that means something. He likes to make memories and take selfies that they always have to delete. He likes to go on dates and hold hands only where no one can see. He likes to use the word boyfriend and kiss hello and goodbye- always too many goodbyes.

Yet chances to spend those times together, to do those things and make memories are always slim, there’s always been something, conflicting schedules or responsibilities neither of them can trust to anyone else.

And because of all that, Victor has also been waiting for this day since the day they met. Their first Christmas Day together.

“It’s merry Christmas to me Victor, because it’s your birthday.” Yuuri smiles as he stares up at the unfamiliar ceiling and feels Victor lose any comeback that was on his tongue.

“Yuuri…”

There’s something incredibly satisfying in making Victor Nikiforov speechless, even more so when it’s because he’s surprised him for a change.

“Happy birthday, Victor,” Yuuri echoes again, and he knows full well his partner doesn’t need material gifts or something to unwrap to go along with those words.

There’s a hand tracing the tattoos on his arm now, lazy lines as Victor looks down at the difference in their skin. Victor’s unblemished and flawless, a canvas for all Yuuri’s colours and scars.

“You spoil me, love.” Victor whispers into his hair once more, smile in his voice as his heart thumps in is chest against Yuuri’s ear. “Thank you.”

“No. Thank you.” Yuuri whispers back.

Today is the gift for them both. Waking up with each other, this small pocket of isolation outside reality.

Yuuri has never been more grateful for a single day in his life. It’s another day to fight, another day to win, another day to live. It’s the day Victor was born, the most important day of Yuuri’s life.

It’s a funny little thing, the way that they always come together in the end. Like magnets. Or fate. Or a thousand other nameless things that keep them stuck in each other’s orbits.

Whatever it is, whatever the reason, Derek finds that more often than not he’s searching for Dex. Seeking him out like it’s vital, and maybe it is. Maybe that’s why they’re here right now, huddled close (closer than any excuse Derek can call to mind will allow) as if to find shelter from the throbbing bass that leaks from the living room below.

He’s close enough to smell the cologne Dex wears (dark and warm and gorgeous and expensive - a gift, a promise, an unspoken plea from Derek - for what, he’s never been sure - brushed off as nothing more than a obligatory Christmas gift, gaudy in its simple elegance - and oh, how Dex had flushed and burned and held himself in defeat - as if the socks he had knit for Derek were any less worthy - as if he wasn’t enough). He’s close enough to see the way Dex’s freckles have bled together over the summer and close enough to feel the way Dex’s breath hitches when Derek sways closer.

It’s a swirling little feeling, the way Derek goes sideways whenever Dex is in the room. First it’s his stomach - a churning vortex of nerves and want and vertigo that has him leaning closer, one hand on Dex’s shoulder and the other on his arm… as if touching Dex would make it easier. After his stomach it’s his heart - beating at a rabbit’s pace, making Derek feel like prey even as he looms closer into Dex’s space. Derek knows better than to trust his racing heart, because if anyone in this hallway is a predator, it’s him.

Carefully, carefully, he presses Dex back until he’s pinned to the wall - like a butterfly, or a beetle, or any of a thousand other beautiful things - and for all their tension, Dex allows himself to be moved without a fight. He just goes, lets himself be easy for once in their lives, red solo cup clutched to his chest and his eyes blinking slow and low - low enough for his eyelashes to brush down against the flush of his cheeks with each sweep. And he’s beautiful.

“I’ve never kissed a guy,” he says, lips frowning even as they form around his words, and it’s such a Dex-like thing to do (how he frowns around even the most innocuous of words) that it’s got Derek smiling into Dex’s gravity, fingers pushing Dex against the wall even as he aches to pull Dex in. Sometimes Derek thinks that Dex would let him.

It’s a quiet little moment, when Dex closes his eyes, cheeks flushing in a way that has nothing to do with his drink, and god, Derek is drunk on that flush. He’s wasted on Dex - messy and dangerous and nothing but trouble - and maybe that’s why he doesn’t see it coming when Dex’s lips are frowning around his words again. Why he doesn’t know what to do when Dex tacks on that last word to his sentence - it’s still a fragment of a thought (‘I’ve never kissed a guy but’), but having tacked on that last syllable… it changes everything.

Because then Dex is opening his eyes, and Dex is pressing close enough where Derek can feel his breath fan across Derek’s lips, and Dex can never again say that he’s never kissed a guy.

There’s nothing small about it.

Neil shopping for a birthday present for Nicky. He’s walking around the entire mall trying to pick out something perfect and struggling to remember every unimportant thing Nicky has ever chatted with him about in case there’s any hints there, but he’s coming up blank. For an hour, Andrew follows Neil around wordlessly and looks utterly indifferent to everything. Kevin looks around other sections of the same stores they’re in, but inevitably buys Nicky something exy related. Aaron knows exactly what he’s getting Nicky because Nicky has not at all subtly been pointing it out to him and then blatantly not buying it every time they go shopping, so he goes off on his own to get it and then meets up with Katelyn in the food court.

Neil is debating giving in and buying Nicky a jacket that looks like he might wear it because Nicky gave him a jacket for Christmas so it can’t be the worst gift, right? And then Andrew speaks up for the first time since they got there to tell him not that one. When Neil shoots him a look, Andrew explains Nicky hates wearing that colour because he thinks he looks bad in it. Neil suddenly vaguely remembers Nicky making a comment in passing about how he was jealous Neil could pull the colour off and he couldn’t. Andrew will not help pick presents out, but through a system of guess and check, Neil finds out what Nicky would and wouldn’t like thanks to Andrew’s eidetic memory and Nicky’s tendency to overshare.

On Nicky’s birthday, Neil hands him their purchases in the bag from the store instead of wrapped and Nicky’s so excited to open it that he almost forgets to make a comment about how Neil’s wrapping is as bad as Kevin’s. Neil says “We picked them out together” and Nicky looks to Andrew, waiting for him to deny any involvement. Andrew just stares at the far wall, looking bored to death and like he hasn’t heard a word either of them are saying.

When he’s done opening all of his presents from the team, Nicky ranks them from best to worst. Andrew and Neil get first place and Nicky makes a point of saying how Neil is a real friend, unlike Kevin who takes a firm last place for his exy book. Aaron gets second place for his expected, but thoroughly appreciated gift. Allison gets the next spot for the fancy sunglasses Nicky had to immediately take a selfie in and then send to Erik. Andrew pretends he can’t see the proud look Neil is giving him for their first place spot.

He isn’t sure how long he’s been staring at you this time, but he knows you’ve noticed when you look directly at him with a coy smile on your lips. He doesn’t think he’s ever seen you so happy and relaxed than with the small fluffy animals surrounding you.

Tony and Steve had decided that the Avengers needed to be seen doing more normal good deeds so people wouldn’t be so apprehensive about them. You all had been at more public events this past month than he could count, serving dinner at homeless shelters, attending galas for things he can’t even remember anymore, and visiting children’s hospitals. Natasha had decided to attend an adoption convention this time to try and get as many dogs and cats adopted as possible.
