probably not consciously. he treats him kind of like a son sometimes, but that’s not very unusual for tony. tony has to be watched closely or he adopts stray genius children everywhere he goes.
mostly it’s pretty long distance–he emails and videocalls them, sets up scholarships, funds research, talks them through school problems, introduces them to employers… i know for a fact that at least half of the starkphone beta testers are sleep-deprived students across the country who tony has run into at some convention or facility tour and decided to keep. some of them come to work at Stark Industries eventually, but a fair number go into other fields.
he has a strange ability to pinpoint exactly which kid in any given cluster is an untapped well of talent looking for mentoring. we have a number of bets running on if he’s doing it consciously or not.
either way, he does it a lot.
he’s not very cuddly or touchy-feely with them, and he gets hilariously defensive if you poke him about it, but he’s actually a really good mentor, and he does really care. i mean, sometimes he uses the ‘do the exact opposite of what i would do’ method of role modelling, but…
Where does Keith, lance and pidge participate in the altean!Hunk and Altean! Shiro?
Keith grew up as a Galra with the blade of marmora. Notices he ages fast (like I hc Galrans have long lifespans) Keith discovers he is half human and travels to Earth to find some answers and look into clues for Voltron. Figures out how to shift into his human form, joins the Garrison, gets kicked out (similar in the show basically).
Lance and Pidge are gonna remain human (the reason for this is because Coran is an instructor at the garrison and Allura is a senior office, what position Shiro had and got suspended/fired which was do with with her digging around into her Father’s death. So Allura is Lance’s hero, that I dig and Coran is one of their instructors, their fav one)
I’m thinkin then Altean!Shiro crashes to Earth (maybe escaping the Galra) but also a piece of Altean technology which Allura discovers and links her to the castleship. Gang saves Altean!Shiro, find out Keith’s half alien then find Blue Lion and off they go into space and find Altean!Hunk.
So how does Ghirahim's teleport work? Sometimes he appears immediately and other times he doesn't. I know he's dramatic but what's really going on?
I have no answer to this outside of headcanon speculation but here’s what I think!!!
Ghirahim’s teleportation works by him basically breaking his body apart and putting it back together in a different location. How fast it goes depends on distance. The closer the location he wants to teleport to is, the faster he will teleport because there is a shorter distance for his disintegrated body to travel.
Further locations take longer to teleport because he has to, essentially, travel farther.
There is a limited range to how far he can teleport. I didn’t think of an exact number for how far, though. I don’t think he can teleport into places he doesn’t have a good visual of and he can’t glitch himself into objects either. If he tries to teleport into a solid object it just won’t work.
And also yes, Ghirahim is over dramatic and will sometimes make his teleportation slower for the sake of drama/cool factor. He can, in general, control the speed of his teleportation to a degree and sometimes he will use it to his advantage to make his entrance extra dramatic.
Yeah not a canon answer but that’s what I headcanon!
The way he carries himself; with Jeongguk in particular there’s a big difference between the him off today (YNWA era) and let’s say, Debut era, because he was just lil baby back then. So, he hadn’t yet developed his personality quite as strongly, he was still growing into himself quite a bit.
Jeongguk’s current day body language is the only thing I’ll be addressing because it’s the most relevant and actuate of his adult/developed personality.
Anyways, Jeongguk’s body language is CRISP, oh boy he’s super duper easy to read. This is pretty heavily due to the fact that he’s a physical person in general, less verbal, he tends to rely on physical intent and expressions to communicate his thoughts and feelings. So when/what he’s feeling, it tends to light up like Christmas lights, even if he isn’t saying how he’s feeling verbally, it reflects so super clearly.
Gryffindor loses against Ravenclaw in the Quidditch match. The Slytherins were chanting “Weasley is Our King” which caused Ron to mess up. Ron stalks away and you follow from a distance. He goes to a tree and slumps to the base.
“You know, Weasley is our king. That’s the only statement in that stupid song that’s true.”
“Go away Y/N,”
“I mean that Ron guy is a great Quidditch player. Did you see how many people Angelina had to choose from? And she chose Ron. That boy must have a lot of talent.”
“Especially since the Slytherins are insecure enough make a song about him. Mad skill, that Ron has.”
“Leave me be.”
“I heard he’s a great mate too. Like in First Year, he helped Harry Potter rescue the Sorcerer’s Stone from You-Know-Who. He sacrificed himself for his friend. And in Second Year, he went against his biggest fear for his mate. Then he went into the Chamber of Secrets. Could you imagine how scared he was? Especially since You-Know-Who kidnapped his sister. Yeah, Ron’s very brave.
And in Third Year, he stood on a broken leg to defend his friend. Bad enough that it’s broken, but he stood on it to tell a mass murderer that he’d have to murder him if he wanted to hurt his friend. And this other time, Ron’s friend Hermione was called a Mudblood. Ron stood up for his friend and hexed the Malfoy git to eat slugs. But Ron decided last minute that he was a better man and took the slugs himself.”
“That’s not true.”
“And Ron’s a handsome fellow too. Don’t tell him I said this, but I know a person that likes him.”
“Who would that be?”
“Promise you won’t tell Ron?”
He sighs. “Yes.”
“That person’s name is Y/N L/N. But I’ve also been told that (s)he’s annoying and doesn’t have a chance with Ron.”
“Well, I’ve been told that (s)he’s beautiful, kind, smart, and funny. I’ve also been told that Ron likes Y/N L/N back.”
Someone From Louden Swain Is In Love With Me And All I Got Was This Song Written About Me
Pairing: Rob Benedict x Reader
Summary: Based on this one post by @lamthetwickster AND a request from @a-vast-african-plain “Hi I was wondering if you could do a prophet!Chuck x reader where he and the reader used to date in high school, but broke up when they went to college because they didn’t want to have a long distance relationship, and then he goes to his high school reunion and sees the reader for the first time in years and they still have feelings for each other? And could it be a little smutty? Pretty please with strawberry syrup and marshmallows on top?”
Warnings: smuuuuut, also I BLAME YALL IF I FAIL CHEMISTRY I JUST WANTED TO PUT THIS OUT THERE SO I WROTE 3.4K WORDS INSTEAD OF READING UP ABOUT AVOGADRO’S CONSTANT SO THERE
A/N: I know it’s SUUUUPER different from the original request, but I loved this version and am a teeny bit proud of it so. ALSO IM SORRY ITS SO BAD IM RUSHING IT.
Here it is! My first Thirst Party Saturday foray into another fandom!
Tagging @toxiicpop naturally and I’d like to give an enormous
thank you to @im-an-octopus, their Chris Pratt character headcanons
(the Pratt Pack, if you will) are incredibly thought out and
watches you from across the bar, eyes glued on the way your body sways with the
music. He didn’t want to be so obvious, not with his new partner sitting across
from him, sipping their drink. He felt a bit of shame for it, too; he wasn’t
that person who wanted to purposely make their partner feel bad by looking at
other people but…
“You’re so gorgeous,” he muses with his hands cradling my hips. “How’d you get like that?”
I laugh hard, tilting my head back for my eyes to meet his. “That’s kind of hard to answer. How’d you get like that?”
“I like feisty girls like you,” he whispers and his lips brush the shell of my ear. “Do you want a drink? Huh, babygirl?”
When I nod he goes off to fetch me one. In the distance I see Hannah, my best friend who I came here with, who has just finished kissing Two-Bit Mathews.
“How was that?” I smirk suggestively as I drag her away and she giggles.
She wipes her lips, pouring a glass to drink. “Not too bad, actually. I see you with Randle, by the way! ‘Should go for it. I mean, you haven’t had any interactions with a boy in, like, two years.”
I hit Hannah’s arm, laughing. Soon that laughter fades, though. “I know I should see someone eventually, but I don’t think that Steve guy is the right way to go. He plays with girls like they’re toys!”
Hannah rolls her eyes. “But he’s hot, isn’t he? Besides, it’s just for tonight. Maybe he just gets more … confident when he’s drunk.”
Two-Bit comes over, blissfully buzzed. “Smeve’s not a bad guy. Han’s right, he just gets rather confident when drunk. I mean, he knows what to say to get chicks 'n he does.”
“So you’re saying he’s not always like that, then?”
Two-Bit shakes his head and wraps an arm around Hannah. “You’re sharp enough to figure that out. He only acts like that for show. He’s a good guy.”
She nods in agreement and I find Steve walking towards us. I realize that everything he says rolls off his tongue like it’s rehearsed, but looking that way — it doesn’t really matter, does it?
“Hey,” I grab the drink from him. “Thanks. I was about to die of thirst, if I’m being honest.”
My thoughts on the boy are altered as we discuss personal things. He tells me about his obsession with cars, about his relationship with his dad, and his last relationship with a girl.
He says their breaking up didn’t hit him as hard as his buddy Sodapop’s and his girl’s.
But, of course, he said, the circumstances were a lot different.
“I probably should stop before it’s too late,” he lets out a dry laugh. “Everyone likes a bit of mystery, am I right?”
Laughing, I bit my lip. The fact that we’re the only ones not kissing is becoming apparent.
“Can we —” he starts. Instead, his hand finds the curve of my waist. He takes both of our drinks and puts them on a table nearby.
“Can we please…?”
I wonder if he gets a kind of vibe from me that tells him that I’m type of girl you ask before you kiss if you aren’t already going with her.
Because I have a feeling that any other girl he would just kiss, but I’m not any other girl.
I giggle at his hesitation and attach our lips with intensity, wrapping my arms around his neck.
He grins into the kiss and I wonder briefly if he’s like every other boy, but the thought is easily disregarded again.
He moans into my mouth and I giggle and he laughs. It’s muffled and deep and I feel butterflies in my chest.
