james and lily died on halloween night, 1981. on november 1st, sirius cornered peter which led to his own arrest. he would have been taken into custody and interrogated on the 2nd whilst they awaited the arrival of the dementors to escort him to azkaban.
on november 3rd, sirius spent his 22nd birthday as the first day of twelve years imprisonment, grieving the loss of two best friends, the betrayal of another, and the abandonment of the fourth.
IT HAS BEEN DECREED THAT STAHL/CORDELIA WEEK SHALL OCCUR FROM THE 16th OF JUNE TO the 22nd OF JUNE. THE DAYS ARE THEMED THUSLY:
DAY 1: First Impressions. DAY 2: Domestic (Married) Life. (AUs are optional) DAY 3: Alternate Universe. (University, Period Drama, anything you want.) DAY 4: Fluff. As much as you can. DAY 5: Birthdays! DAY 6: WEDDING DAY. DAY 7: Waking up together. (Stahl must have morning stubble. it is required.)
(Bonus DAY 8: Smut.)
THE DATE IS DECIDED. THE THEMES ARE SET. MY BODY IS READY. LET US SAIL THIS SHIP INTO THE GOD DAMN STRATOSPHERE.
I personally do not believe it is (shit on me all you want, you won’t change my opinion). Otabek barely turned 18 around a month ago.
Now Yuri who is 15 right now, turns 16 pretty soon, his birthday being March 1.
Now that is a 2 year and a 5 month age gap. Now, let’s compare that to one of the more popular ships in the fandom, Guang Hong and Leo. They have a 1 year and 8 month age gap but that’s perfectly fine! The age gap for Otabek and Yuri is just 1 year longer. People see the 18 and just scream “IT’S PEFOPHILLIA IT’S ILLEGAL!!” Now, pedophillia is no joke in Kazakhstan. They literally castrate people for it! It is also the same in Russia. The age of consent in Russia is 16, and the same in Kazakhstan. Sure, they wouldn’t be able to do anything sexual for a year, but as long as they don’t do those types of things it’s a perfectly legal relationship. Also, given Yuri’s personality, they wouldn’t just jump into a relationship! If we were looking at this realistically, they probably wouldn’t even start dating until Yuri is 16 or older!
And, just as a reminder there’s different kinds of shipping. There’s romantic shipping and platonic shipping. Know the difference and stop judging people for shipping Yuri, an almost 16 year old, with Otabek, a barely 18 year old!
I feel like being creative with my bokuroo, but writer’s block is hitting me super hard, so here are some headcanons for the babes! –
Kuroo never used to make a big deal out of his birthday - until Bokuto. Now, Bokuto insists on making the biggest deal possible, spoiling Kuroo with gifts and pampering and kisses. Many, many, many kisses. He kisses Kuroo at least twenty times when he first wishes him in the morning.
Kuroo spoils Boktuo just as much on his birthday. He might not give him quite so many kisses (Seriously, Bo, I get it already! I love you, too! You can stop now!), but he always gives Bokuto the exact gifts he wants (even if he didn’t tell him) and pampers the heck out of him.
When he’s sick, Kuroo is even cuddlier than Bokuto (who is probably the cuddliest person on the planet). He tries not to be, because he doesn’t want to make Bokuto sick. But, once Bokuto tells him that it’s okay, all bets are off and he won’t be able to get Kuroo off of him for the next three days. More often than not, Bokuto ends up getting sick as well.
They get together in the dumbest possible way. Lots of awkwardness and flailing and miscommunication, because they’re just too damn excited when they’re around one another to actually think properly.
Michael and you are sleeping in bed when suddenly you’re woken up by the pitter-patter of the feet of your three-year-old daughter, Amelia, running across the hall from her room to yours. “Mama, Daddy, lemme in please,” she whispers. You get out of bed, knowing Michael is such a deep sleeper that you don’t have to be too quiet. You open the door and see Amelia holding her stuffed lion in one hand and her handmade birthday card for Michael in the other. “Amelia Rose, what in the world are you doing up?” “Can I give Daddy his birthday present now?” she asks, clearly unable to wait a moment longer. You smile and pick her up. “Not just yet, baby girl,” you gently turn her down. “We have to wait for Daddy to be totally awake before he gets to celebrate his birthday”. “Oh. Okay,” Amelia grins, her eyes tired. You gently tuck Amelia back into bed, placing the card on the night table next to her bed. You made your way back into bed and smiled when you felt Michael’s arms wrap around your waist. “Everything alright?” he murmured. “Yep,” you kissed him on the forehead. “Everything’s perfect.”
