Authors Note: Hey everyone! It was requested I write about H and the missus painting Easter Eggs with the kiddos. So here is my take on it. I hope you guys like the concept.
Have fun this weekend with Easter celebrations and traditions, my lovelies!! All prompts/ Blurbs can be found HERE
The air is permanently getting warmer, the flowers are blooming, and the birds are chirping; spring is in full action and you love it.
The french doors are wide open on a cool evening, the fresh scent of the outdoors filling the house as your eyes stay focused on your two little girls spinning around playfully in the back yard, their silky coffee-colored curls bouncing in the breeze, their giggles radiating a pleasing sound to your ears. You smile to yourself, admiring the beautiful twins, their little hands holding each other as they dance around against the smooth grass.
You move your eyes from the twins’ as you step down into the living room, swiftly walking towards the vintage turntable resting perfectly in the corner. Your hand glides delicately over the modest pile of vinyl, compiled mainly of yours and Harry’s favourites.
“Ah, nice choice.” Harry smiles over at you as you walk back towards the doors’ your eyes once again meeting your girls’ in the back yard. You hum and nod, agreeing with him. “I think everything is set up if you want to call the girls’ in,” Harry announces, indicating that he has finally managed to get the dye ready and the eggs set to decorate.
You call your little ones, their smiles instantly widening as they hurry inside, “Careful little ones.” You chuckle as they beam gracefully, bouncing towards the kitchen. They have been eager to paint Easter eggs, in fact, they have been waiting all week, counting down the days Harry was back home so they could decorate the eggs.
“Ahh, you two are getting big.” Harry smiles, looking down at the girls’ and they just giggle, “Alright, Hannah, Hailey, let’s try not to make a mess.” He gently picks both of them up one by one, sitting them down on the counter, sweetly fixing up Hannahs bow as it has managed to come loose while playing with her sister.
“What colours do we want to use first?” You gesture towards the few colours Harry graciously prepared for the twins, making sure to incorporate their favourite colours. Specifically, a soft pink for Hannah, and a lilac blue for Hailey.
“Orange and pink.” Hannah willingly motions towards the two colours, her sister grinning and pointing to the lilac blue.
You dab a sponge for Hannah while Harry does the same for Hailey, carefully placing the egg in her hand and showing her what to do. Hannah grins as she does her best to split her egg with the two colours, her eyes focused intently on the egg, making sure to tactfully encircle the dye to the egg.
“Look at you two, your pros.” Harry delightfully beams, admiring his little girls’ while they decorate their eggs.
“Daddy, I am done.” Hailey holds her egg towards Harry as it is painted in her favourite colour, a few of her fingerprints evident on the outside.
“Ahh, beautiful, just beautiful. Should we put anything on it? Maybe a flower, or a smiley face, or your name?” Harry offers, reaching over for a paint brush. Hailey nods excitedly, her eyes lighting up instantly.
“Daddy, paint a bunny on it,” Hailey instructs cutely, Harry instantly biting his lip. He has never been very good with creating art on small objects, he is more of a big canvas type of guy.
“Maybe Mummy should do it, sweetie.”
Hailey shakes her head, “No, Daddy you can do it,” She smiles and Harry nods. His children’s wishes are his demands.
You chuckle as you watch Harry furrowing his eyebrows, his eyes glue to the egg, his teeth sinking into his lip as he does his best to start painting a bunny on the egg.
Your attention goes towards Hannah as she gently tugs at your hand, showing you her finished product,
“Wow, so pretty.” You cherish her commitment and split colours, she definitely has a genuine taste for colours and artistic designs. She is the one who tends to continuously colour in the lines, to coordinate her colours, and can be allowed to coordinate her clothes; Hailey on the other hand, unquestionably got her colour matching skills from her father- always wanting to mix and match distinctive colours and patterns. “Let’s paint another one, shall we?” You reach over and clasp another egg, handing Hannah the boiled egg before waiting for her to select the colours.
“Mummy, you pick this time.” She instructs and you nod, promptly picking a tiffany blue colour for her.
“Ah, shit.” Harry mutters, your eyes instantly diverting themselves to him, “Don’t repeat what Daddy said.” He quickly announces to the girls’ knowing very well and good that he needs to watch his language around them, particularly considering that they are essentially parrots and repeat everything.
“Daddy, can I see?” Hailey requests, curious to see the design Harry has managed to paint across her egg.
You smirk as he looks over at you, unsure of whether his daughter will be satisfied with his pitiful attempt. “I mean.. sure…. it has ears and eyes.” He nods, showing her the egg. She blinks at him a few times, furrowing her eyebrows just like her father before frowning.
“Daddy… where is the nose? And.. and… he only has one ear…” She questions, tilting her head to the side in an attempt and see if she is missing something.
“Yeah, uh, sorry sweets, Daddy isn’t good at this.” He sighs, “How about we do another one?” He grabs another egg, keeping his daughters mind occupied and no longer questioning his artistic abilities.
You can see the girls’ beginning to get sleepy, their eyes dropping, their hands tired from painting eggs as Hannah yawns.
“Alright little ones, I think it is bath time.” Harry smiles as he places the last egg down to dry on the side, his girls’ not objecting as you pick them up individually and press their little feet to the tiles.
“Daddy, does the Easter Bunny come tonight?” Hailey yawns, her hand pressing against Harry’s leg as she glances up at him.
“Yes.” He nods, “But, only if you go to bed without any fits.” He continues, picking her up and pressing a kiss to her cheek. “Alright, c'mon cuties, it is bath time.” He gestures towards the stairs, Hannah tugging on his shirt with her orange painted hand. He picks her up as well, carrying the two of them upstairs while you clean up the mess of the paint.
You feel familiar arms wrap around you from behind, his head resting on your shoulder as you take in a deep breath, admiring his touch.
“How is my beautiful wife, hm? Haven’t had much time with you since I got back.” He whispers, his scent radiating around you, giving you a sense of clarity.
“Good,” You chuckle, feeling a few soft kisses being pressed to your neck, “I missed you.” You sigh, “It was a very long two weeks.” You continue.
“I know, but I am back for two weeks before I gotta go back to New York.”
“Yeah, I know.” You nods, gently moving to face him, his arms holding you close. “Are the girls’ asleep?”
“No, they are upstairs on our bed watching Beauty and the Beast, they wanted to stay up a little longer.” He informs you with a grin, leaning down and kissing your lips softly. “Missed kissin’ yeh… gotta make up for it.” He chuckles, kissing you again, and again, and again.
After some time in the kitchen, cleaning, but mainly kissing and getting lost with each other’s cheeky grins and glances, you both make it upstairs, quietly walking into the master bedroom to find Hannah asleep against Harrys pillow, Hailey still awake with her eyes glued to the television, giggling at Lumière and Babette.
You lean down and kiss Hannahs forehead before Harry carefully scoops her up and carries her out of the room. You climb up on the bed with Hailey, sitting against the headboard as she moves to sit in your lap, your fingers running through her partially dry hair.
“Mummy, why does Belle love Beast?”
“She just did.”
“But, why? He was a Beast.” She questions, her eyes still glued to the television.
“Well, it isn’t always what’s on the outside, my love.”
She turns around for a moment, her eyes meeting yours, “Was Daddy a Beast before turning into a Prince?” You chuckle to yourself, biting your lip as Harry walks in.
“Well, no.” You shake your head, “Daddy.. well, Daddy..” You trail off, unsure of how to accurately answer her question. “Daddy has always been a prince. He is a very gentle and kind man. Always has been.” You answer her question just as Harry walks in, crawling his way on the bed.
The movie comes to an end and you convince Hailey that if she doesn’t go to bed the Easter Bunny won’t arrive and leave chocolate for her. She kisses Harry and hugs him before she clings to you, her arms and legs wrapping around you as you carry her to her bedroom.
You lay her down in her bed, gently pulling her pretty duvet over her body, tucking her in so she stays nice and warm during the night. “Goodnight, sweet dreams, lovely.” You press a kiss to her cheek, a soft giggle escaping from her lips. “What’s funny my love?” You question, adjusting the nightlight by her bed.
“Lovely is funny. I like it” She beams, “Mummy, will Daddy be here for our Birthday?”
“Of course,” You nod.
“How many more days?”
“Five more sleeps.” You hold up five fingers, watching as she smiles cutely, “Five more sleeps until you are five.” You inform her, kissing her again before standing up straight, watching her eyes slowly close, her hands clasping her teddy bear before you promptly step out of the room.
You enter the master bedroom, Harry sprawled out on the bed, his finger scrolling through something on his phone, probably one of the few social medias he reads through at times.
“Sweetheart, come join me.” He pets down the free space beside him, giving you his adoring smile.
You crawl on the bed, inching closer to him before relaxing down beside him, your head resting on his chest. “We have such a cute little family.” Harry begins, placing his phone down, “Really, our girls’ are so perfect.”
“Mhhm, they are wonderful,” You agree,
“I can’t believe they are five this week.”
“Yeah, time goes by quickly. Just yesterday they were babbling their first words, and taking their first steps.” Harry reminisces of the precious moments you both have with the girls’ their firsts that hold a special spot in your heart.
“Just yesterday Hannah was crying for you not to leave her at daycare.” You chuckle,
“That broke my heart. Remember when Hailey cried bloody murder when she met Santa?” Harry smiles, wrapping an arm around you, the two of you sighing.
There is nothing in the world you would trade for your life to be any other way. Lying in bed with your husband, your twins’ fast asleep after an evening of painting Easter Eggs and preparing for Easter tomorrow.
who’s willing to spend the next couple of hours talking about a little baby Montilyet with me
because. because babies.tiny little Montilyet babies.
Josephine catching dignitaries off guard by greeting them with a little girl sleeping in a sling across her chest.
Josephine reading long bedtime stories to her little girl about heroes and dragons and the Inquisitor (that’s your daddy/mommy) and calling her baby Topolina and Carissima and Passerotta in-passing (whereas her spouse refers to them as Da’len or Asala or friggin’ Pumpkin, darling why must you name our child after food)
Josephine twisting her daughter’s long, dark, wavy hair -just like Mommy’s- into delicate updos, only for them to come apart within the next hour.
JOSEPHINE’S SPOUSE GENTLY WEANING THEIR DAUGHTER FROM MOMMY’S ARMS AND CARRYING HER TO BED BEFORE DOING THE SAME TO JOSIE.
but most importantly
Josephine and her Inquisitor having long, in-depth discussions about the potential of having children- and deciding that it’s not for them, or that it’s not the right time just yet, or that they can’t wait to become parents.
Josephine and her Inquisitor finding themselves in an unexpected pregnancy or with a child they weren’t prepared for and feeling lost, anxious, terrified, but somehow elated, or finally, after long and careful planning, finally finding themselves with a dream come true cradled in their arms.
Josephine and her Inquisitor dealing with all the changes in themselves and their relationship, Josephine and her Inquisitor looking for that intimacy they seem to have lost on the way, or on the contrary, Josephine and her Inquisitor being each other’s pillars of strength and the two of them being closer and more stupidly in love than ever before.
Josephine working long and hard hours to ensure her family’s safety and happiness while her spouse cares for their child, or Josephine so entranced by the little life in her arms that she almost forgets the Duke of Kellington for a second.
Josehine and her Inquisitor living their happy and completely average, long lives however the fuck they want in the post-Inquisition years.
This is a quick tutorial requested by several people on how I draw Bonnie. I’m sorry if this isn’t the best quality but right now I’m unwell and am struggling to focus on anything.
STEP 1 - I begin by drawing a circle. Don’t make it too perfect because this is a very rough base, and pretty much is just there to help structure the face. Add some lines to the face area so you can begin to line out what angle the head is and where the face is looking.
he is into classic rock, like proper classic rock; muggle rock & roll
every since he was really small and he saw pictures of young sirius with his band T-shirts and punk look, he’s worn nothing else
in fact he loves music; often he’s said he might move into the muggle world and start a band
he actually uses a lot of muggle technology and even has a muggle phone
Teddy loves Harry as his own dad but never fails to honor his actual father anyway he can
his favourite way is the phases of the moon tattoo on his chest that moves with the actual moon
even though he was sorted into Gryffindor like Harry and Remus, he honors his mom with a Hufflepuff earring he made himself
thats not the only piercing he has; he has 4 on his right ear, one on his left, one on his right eyebrow and one on his…well anyway
one day he found the ‘Potter Stinks’ and “Weasley Is Our King’ badges that George had saved from back when they were in Hogwarts and now he wears them ironically
Harry actually doesn’t mind and finds it kind of funny
Teddy actually has 4 tattoos: the phases of the moon on his chest, Victorie’s name and kiss on his right hip, a sleeve on his left arm of all the names of the people in the Order of the Phoenix, and a dancing goblin on his right arse cheek that he got when he was really, really drunk.
he doesn’t need all those patches on his jeans; theres nothing wrong with them. he just likes the way it looks; it drives his gran crazy
teddy likes to give off a devil may care vibe, but is actually incredibly thoughtful and always puts the needs of others first
he’ll never tell him, but teddy always tries to judge his actions on what Harry would do
but above everyone, he loves his longterm girlfriend Victorie and plans to marry her as soon as she leaves Hogwarts
he already bought the ring, he’s had it since the day after he left Hogwarts.
For those who asked about the new dog: Mindbroke’s friend texted he saw a male pitbull without collar near his home, we immediately went there and found this boy. He was super friendly, but he has only one ear and some fresh scars so people probably were scared to contact him. We fell in love from the first sight, even Mindbroke who was kinda skeptical about second dog…so we took him to vet and then home. His new name is Bjorn cause he looks like baby bear☺️
Z and Van Gogh: Van Gogh loves the camera. He came to Crash’s several years ago when, one winter morning, someone started the truck he had been sleeping in to keep warm and ripped off half his face. He has only one ear and eye. He has big mitten paws. He’s a total lover. It has been a long, rough day for me but getting to sit down and have Van Gogh climb all over me and start kneading my chest was worth it.
Hi there! I have a question! Do you have any photo of richard armitage as thorin wearing a earring? I saw a lot of art with thorin using them but i have never seen a photo, so if you have it, please and thank you very much:))
