The Bridge headcannons

I have some half thought out Bridge headcannons I wanna share ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

• Bertie can play the piano pretty well, though he only really plays the first movement of Moonlight Sonata. There’s a piano somewhere in the watchtower that’s old and veeeeeeeery slightly out of tune but one time Etta heard him playing and almost cried

•when the transcontinental hotel wasn’t super busy, the kitchen staff would bring Etta into the kitchen and let her make desserts (it’s where she gets her love of Frankenstein creations from)

• When he was in high school, Roger played basketball. He didn’t really like it but it was something to do

• Kate is a really good artist and sometimes sketches the watchtower 10 crew - and Bob - when she’s in her room at night but there’s no way she’d show any of her work to anyone

• (not really a headcannon bc this is PRETTY MUCH CANON but anyway) most of the time Roger only /pretends/ to be annoyed at Etta and Bertie bc he’s their boss but they (along w Kate) are some of the most important people to him and he’d probably kill (or try to kill) anyone who hurts them or takes them away (like if Percy and Nora had managed to take Etta he probably would have tracked them and beat them)

My favorite things in a fanfiction

• When one sits on the others lap for any non-sexual reason.
• One of them is cooking and the other wraps their arms around their waist.
• Comfort cuddles
• When one of them is insecure and the other refuses to let them think of themselves that way.
When one of them is an angry ball of rage and will only be calm and happy when their s/o is around.
• Band AUs.
Kissing and then being picked up so their legs are wrapped around the others waist.
One of them is a jock and will always give their team jacket to the other.
• 5 + 1 (these depend on the topic).
• Comfort during an anxiety/panic attack.
• Coffeeshop AUs.
• Morning cuddling.
College AUs
Small one wearing tall one’s clothes.
When one of them is asexual and the other one hundred percent respects that and will do anything to make them feel comfortable.
• Sick fics.
• Saying “I love you” without directly saying it.
High school AUs.
• Friends playing matchmaker.
• Falling for the best friends brother/sister
• Youtuber AUs.
• One is a cinnamon roll that needs protection and the other is a brutal rebel and if anyone hurts their cinnamon roll they will destroy them (if you’re familar with my posts, you know how much I love this one).
• Meeting the parents and the parents are so accepting of the relationship.
• Friends noticing hickies and embarrassment ensues.
• Jealousy
• Saying their first “I love you”.
• Height difference cuteness where one of them is super short and their s/o will always pick them up to make them eye level.
• When they get locked in and that forces them to confess.
• Sloppy make outs.
When the relationship is already established.
When one of them comes back from a long trip and the other one picks them up from the airport/train station/bus stop and they have a big reunion scene.
When one of them is scared to fall in love but ends up loving the other too much and so when they kiss for the first time they just say “fuck it” and freaking go for it.

• (since I keep seeing people add it and I enjoy it on occasion as well) Fake dating. 

And that’s it so far. I’ll most likely add more to this list later. Feel free to add your own. : )

Also I made this to help out any struggling fanfic writers, hope you like the ideas.

Why Lemonade Mouth is the best band
• sick name
• a bunch of misfits
• non gender-exclusive
• revolutionized a high school
• ballads and raps in the same song but they make it work
• sick girl harmonies
• the fucking raps are fire
• they wrote a song in a jail cell with a zipper, hair tie, and a pencil
• there name was based on a nickname some asshole insulted one of them as and if that isn’t rad then what is
• were a high school band that was played on the radio like how often does that happen
• the members were diverse and different
• Determinate

I miss my Pep-Band days of High School - playing music was the best part of my studies.

I’m really thrilled about @therealjacksepticeye recording sessions of playing the drums! Just another side of Jack that the community gets to fall in love with.

Keep Rockin’!

(Apologies if drum kid anatomy is off - I play the trumpet, not the drums >.> )

today is october 17th 2017 which means that exactly 30 years ago today high-school-aged green day played their first EVER show as a band in a bbq joint to a crowd of around 25 people (mostly friends and family). billie and mike were only 15 at the time.

fast forward to 2017 and green day is now finishing up their revolution radio tour. during this tour, the band played at massive venues including hyde park, the rose bowl, central park, and wrigley field, with some shows having over 65,000 attendees.

happy 30th anniversary to green day. we love you so much.

A while ago, I introduced my best friend to indie gaming by taking him to my local indie gaming ttrpg group. Out of the games pitched that day, he decided to play Monsterhearts (a game about teenage supernatural creatures making it through puberty and high school etc). My roommate plays a werewolf with horrible social skills due to being raised by a pack, and is faced with the task of buying the Queen Bee a secret Santa gift.

Werwolf: okay, so, I don’t know what to get her, so I’m going to break into her house tonight and snoop through her room to see what sort of stuff she likes.

GM: …seriously? Alright fine, roll to see how well that goes.

Werewolf: *rolls 14 on D20*

GM: You successfully break into the house, having learned at school that Queen will be at a friend’s house that night. Unfortunately as you’re passing her parents’ room you kick over a vase and her father comes out of the room to see what’s going on. He starts yelling, asking who you are and what you’re doing in his house.

Werewolf: I’m going to try and convince him this is a dream.

GM: Roll for persuasion.

Werewolf: *rolls nat 20*

GM: you put one finger on her dad’s lips and shush him, stroking his hair and singing gently that this is all a dream and he should go back to sleep. He looks confused so you turn into a dog and tug on his trouser leg, pulling him back to the bed, until he lays back down and pets you sleepily. You turn back to human and kiss his forehead gently after tucking him in, and close the door on your way out.

Hello! It’s #optomstudies here again with another Sunday Study Tip on university life! This will be a multi-part series that hopefully will give a unique insight, since I can go on and on about university, and I love giving advice and helping others :)


Here I’ve put together a list of 20 things that you might not be told outright when choosing your university degree. @exeron

General Starting Tips During High School

  • It doesn’t matter what subjects you do in senior year, so don’t worry about bonus points, as long as you get a high enough ATAR so that you can keep your options open. Play to your strengths.
  • But! On the other hand, don’t take history and visual arts for your HSC and expect to be at the same level as your peers when you take a B Science (Advanced Mathematics) degree. You need that calculus knowledge. (Most of the time this isn’t a problem, because most people will choose a degree that aligns with their interests in high school). Again, play to your strengths.
  • Keep on top of your extra-curricular activities in case you need to go for an interview like with medicine.
  • Some degrees like optometry, medicine, law, etc. require additional exams like UMAT, so find out early, pay for the tests and mark it down on your calendar so that you don’t forget.
    • Up to you whether you want to pay extra for coaching, but anecdotally, I didn’t do any coaching and did fine. I had many friends who did coaching and ended up doing poorly. 
  • Choose a good university. Promise it actually counts at the end of the day. There are cases of people getting employed with low credit averages at big companies because they go to a good university.

Decide What Kind of Career You Want

  • Most importantly, it’s best if you pick your degree based on the job you want upon graduation. What you study at uni is just a means to an end. It’s a business decision that you are making - trading a few years to get a better career and better income at the end of the day.
  • Consider practical aspects of the job you want. For example, some of the things that I like about optometry is the fact that you aren’t sitting down the whole day, it’s a job that’s great for locum-ing and part-time work if I have kids in the future, and it makes for a good conversation starter when people ask you about optometric myths (no, looking at green grass does not help your eyes, nor do eating carrots, and having a nightlight doesn’t make you more short-sighted). These are all things that aren’t written down on a piece of paper somewhere, but are things that you can figure out by thinking about the everyday facets of the job itself.
  • Figure out your career values. These are things that you don’t want to compromise on due to personal integrity, as opposed to areas of interest. Some examples are:
    • Autonomy and independence
    • Achievement and advancement prospects
    • Creativity
    • Security
    • Altruism
    • Prestige, status and respect
    • Risk-taking and excitement
    • Material benefits a.k.a. $$$
    • Power
    • Team membership
    • Variety
    • Learning
    • Structure and organisation
    • Problem Solving
    • Leadership
    • Work-Life Balance
  • Don’t “follow your passion”, just “get good”. A lot of people also tell you that you should “follow your passion”, but most of the time you have limited experience concerning the types of occupations in the world, and most of the time there isn’t anything that you’ve developed a strong passion for. You might have a bunch of interests like me; when I was in high school, I enjoyed every single subject, because I just enjoyed learning in general, so the only thing I could think of was literally to become a full time uni student. This video really sums everything up quite well, so I’ll quote from it.

When you work hard at something you become good at it.
When you become good at something you enjoy doing it more. 
When you enjoy doing something, there is a good chance you will become passionate about it.

Start By Choosing a Good University and Faculty

  • Choose a Commonwealth-supported university. Don’t saddle yourself with excess debt from a private university unless your grades were so bad that you needed to pay money for a university degree. If you have the choice, don’t opt for these.
  • Go to open days! I seriously think I wouldn’t have chosen optometry if I didn’t go to the UNSW Open Day. The guy was just really persuasive about the benefits of the career.
  • Ask graduates! If you’ve got a retail job and have the opportunity to chat with people about their jobs, see what they like about their job and how they got there.
  • Opt to specialise. For example, if you are aiming to be a financial data scientist, then go for a B Economics and major in econometrics. Sounds simple, but people always argue about choosing a general degree like Commerce so that you have a broader choice and keep your doors open. This is only good if you don’t have an end goal in sight. Specialising shows employers that you have direction and are driven.
  • However, if you have absolutely no idea what you want to study then at least choose a faculty that you find palatable, try and do your research, or take some core courses that allow you to discern your major. If all else fails, just get the UAC book of degrees and cross out what you don’t want to do LOL

After Starting the Degree

  • If you start a degree and you find the first semester or two isn’t what you were imagining, unfortunately that’s what happens to a lot of people. Uni isn’t a vocational school that jumps straight into the professional skills. So if you want to be a pediatrician who nurses cute children to health at the end of the day, sorry but you’ll have to start with basic sciences. I’ve seen a lot of people jump ship just cause they didn’t like the first few courses.
  • Go for Honours if your degree has the option. Just looks a lot better in the eyes of an employer that you’ve tried challenging yourself with a research honours project. A 1 year trade off in studying is worth it.
  • Don’t worry about the length of the degree. Three years will be over before you know it, trust me! And honestly, university is actually a really great time period. Many of my older cousins reflect on it and say that in a way, it was some of the best times of their lives, because you don’t have the responsibility of the household bills and full time work just yet.
  • Don’t be afraid to change your degree after the first year. Some microeconomics - it’s a sunk cost.

Don’t think: “Oh I’ve already spent this much time studying this degree, it will be a waste if I change degrees”.
Think: “if I spend any more time in this degree that I don’t actually want to study, then I’ll be wasting my future”. 

  • You aren’t “wasting” your ATAR by choosing a degree that has a much lower cut-off point. For example, if you wanted to shape the future of children by becoming a teacher, you aren’t “wasting” your 98 ATAR by going into teaching, even if the cut-off is 81.
  • Don’t let other people influence your options. Look, if you’re going to change your uni choice just because someone you don’t like is going there… you’ll barely see anyone except for the people in the same degree as you after 1st year is over. Likewise, parents give advice, they don’tshouldn’t mandate life choices like what you study. 

Good luck with your university applications. Hope you all get into the degree that you’re hoping for! Hit me up if you have any questions :)

I Know Your Wife (She Wouldn’t Mind) - Part Seven

Summary: You explain everything to Kathryn after faking your way through the rest of the convention. Back in Vancouver, you and Jared have to have a serious talk about the future of your pregnancy
Jared x Reader (mentioned Jared x Gen, Jared x Reader x Gen), Jensen, Kathryn Newton
Words: 4.6k
Warnings: pregnancy, angst, smut

I Know Your Wife (She Wouldn’t Mind) - Series Masterpost

Your name: submit What is this?

For once, you were grateful that you were flying back on Monday morning so that you were able to spend Sunday night in the hotel.

You promised Kathryn that you’d tell everything to her that night, seeing as the small break for lunch really wasn’t enough time to explain yourselves properly.

She agreed to keep it quiet and, seeing as she didn’t have any panels left where she might accidentally slip up, you trusted her.

in the bottom drawer of his desk, sam has an old cigar box where he keeps:

  • a pin jess gave him, many years ago now, that says, “pugs, not drugs.”
  • a photograph of him and dean as kids. in it, sam is 13, and dean is 17.
  • a handful of matchbooks and a few “do not disturb” signs he’s collected from some motels they’ve stayed at over the years.
  • a small sewing kit that’s meant for buttons and zippers but has, more often than not, been used to close up cuts and bullet grazes.
  • a letter from bobby singer. apparently they have paper in heaven.
  • two amulets: one from a high school play, and the real one.
  • a brochure for online college courses he picked up at the library.
  • a pack of playing cards and a few green plastic army men.
  • expired coupons for dog food.
thalianca co mom au

Just because I saw like two pictures doesn’t mean I fell in love with this (i swear ^^;) thank you @cindersart for making it a thing

Firstly, Thalia is totally the cool mom. Everyone agrees with that, but if you ever really wanted that candy bar or that new toy, Bianca will eventually say yes when she’s all done with her shopping.

Even though the Graces get a handsome inheritance from their mother, and the di Angelos have their father’s child support, they are rather frugal. Thalia always puts money into the kids’ savings accounts, Bianca has a bad habit of keeping things, unable to let them go because “it’s still good!” *the shirt has been restitched three times and still has a million holes*

Thalia definitely buys Nico mythomagic cards and takes him to events on the weekends. She plays, just not competitively (she crushes a few neckbeards because they called her out for just being a supportive girlfriend for Nico. “She’s my mom, guys, and she just kicked your asses.”)

Bianca and Jason are really good at tag teaming chores. Jason loves loading the laundry, while Bianca enjoys folding it all. He washes the dishes and she dries and puts them away. He’ll do the dusting (mostly because he’s much taller than her after puberty) and she’ll do the vacuuming. Both of them hate cleaning the bathroom–which they leave to Thalia (“we do everything else, so this is yours to do”)

Hazel comes into the picture when Nico finds out they’re related (Nico sure doesn’t like his dad, after finding out another woman was left in the dust after an affair). Hazel and her mother are constantly in debt and Mama Levesque just can’t keep up with working three jobs and trying to take care of her child. Hazel isn’t even in the school system, which Bianca eventually becomes her home school teacher, eventually parent–kind of a Mathilda story line for her. Legally, she’s Thalia and Bianca’s kid, but she visits her mom at least once a week to check up on her.

Thalia just loves little Hazel. She spent hours learning how to take care of Hazel’s hair and gladly does so before going to work every day. She even does this when she’s older, and though Hazel protests that she’s old enough to do it herself, she can’t help but smile when it’s Thalia doing her hair.

Family dates include, but are not limited to: hours of arcade time, picnics, high school performances (musicals, plays, orchestral and choir shows–Jason can sing rather well, and Nico plays a mean violin), movie nights, their yearly trip to a water park, Nico’s various gaming tournaments, Hazel’s pick of a “destination trip” which is usually either a museum or natural landmark, and best of all (when Bianca isn’t home) pillow fort wars.

Jason likes being a big brother. He likes walking his younger siblings home, he likes borrowing the car to treat them for ice cream. He brings Hazel to the library all the time, he tries to keep up with Nico and mythomagic. When he tells his friends that he’s “busy watching his siblings” he never sounds annoyed.

When they were really young, the kids used to accidentally call Bianca and Thalia “mom.” As they grew up, it stopped happening and they’ll admit they sort of miss those times.
