in what part of the world would it be okay to continue chasing after Taehyung when it’s quite obvious that he’s scared and running away from crazy screaming fans trying to ruin his vacation??? him running away wasn’t enough for people to realize that their behavior wasn’t okay??? they still kept going after him until he managed to get inside the car??? y’all really gotta start using common sense, stop following them around, stop trying to sneak pictures and videos just so you can post them on social media to get attention, stop invading what little privacy they have as celebrities. he’s home for the first time in a while, he just came back from a tour, he’s trying to spend some time with a good friend, idk why people thought this was okay and continue to do it when it’s NOT OKAY.
Whenever I think of this pairing I think of the "I CLAIMED YOU ON MY TAXES, SHAWN" bit, so I would like to hear a bit about how Gus ended up claiming Shawn on his taxes. If it involves marriage shenanigans that would just be icing on the cake.
OK I am legit imagining a Sweet Home Alabama AU. Shawn has been swanning around the country with a series of odd jobs and adventures (this is all thoroughly pre-Psych), but he makes routine trips back to Santa Barbara and on one of those trips it’s around tax season and Gus is hanging out with him when he tries to fill out his tax forms. And Shawn is just epically bored with the taxes and they’ve gotten to the bottom of a couple of those pouches of blue drink you get at the supermarket that have labels that warn in all caps CONTAINS ALCOHOL but that mostly taste like skittles. Thus, Gus is pliant and willing and Shawn totally cons him into filing for a domestic partnership and then doing Shawn’s taxes for him because, as Shawn will say many, many times, “SPOUSE!”
So this goes on for a few years and Gus secretly likes it because it means Shawn always shows up in the spring at some point with a pocket full of receipts and some W-2s. Gus always rolls his eyes but he does the taxes and they drink the stupid pouches of CONTAINS ALCOHOL or whatever and it’s just….it’s nice.
Only in this AU, Shawn doesn’t settle down in Santa Barbara eventually to run Psych. He eventually comes to a stop in some big city somewhere where the tips to the cops don’t raise any flags because no one pays that kind of minute attention to the tip line. And Shawn has always assumed it was completely and totally clear that he conned Gus into marrying him because obvious, gigantic crush on Gus and that Gus insists on it being a tax thing as his subtle way of turning Shawn down. So when Shawn settled in….let’s say Chicago….he didn’t really think the “marriage” with Gus was a real thing he could break up because he knew Gus didn’t like guys anyway, obviously, and even if he did, he’d clearly be into some straight-laced respectable type.
So Shawn sets up as a private detective, no psychic shenanigans, and starts to make a life for himself. Eventually, he settles down even more with a cool sex friend who’s convenient and it’s the closest he’s gotten to ~loving someone who’s not Gus, so they decide to run away to Vegas and get married when the gay marriage law passes. Only, shit, what if Gus is still claiming him on his taxes? He should probably go back and check.
So he rolls into Santa Barbara, first time in a few years, and tries to get Gus to dissolve the domestic partnership so he can get married to his casual sex friend. Maybe the casual sex friend even comes with and maybe Shawn is all sedate and manageable and not at all the hijinks shenanigans guy Gus fell in love with. And Gus has been riding on the assumption that Shawn is a will-o-the-wisp types who can’t be ~tied down or some shit but hell no is Shawn marrying this dude, this dude has a neck tattoo and is genuinely unfun.
Also Gus may have upgraded the files to full on gay marriage, like, the DAY it was passed. For tax reasons.
Also, I assume a shenanigans case erupts while Shawn and his cool sex friend are in town only his cool sex friend is a terrible partner in solving crime and Gus rolls his eyes a lot about it, but gleefully takes over. And there’s a moment later when they’ve stolen the pivotal toy poodle and are hiding in the murder suspect’s bathroom having a whispered fight about their storied past when it becomes clear that this has never been a taxes thing to Gus and it’s always been the One True for Shawn.
So Neck Tattoo leaves town, Shawn and Gus go into business with a legit detective agency (not a psychic one), and they stay married after all.
“how could JK think Harry would ever be a bad father she doesn’t even KNOW her characters”
Well she managed to take into account that the kid who was raised in an abusive home, plagued by memories of his parents’ murders placed in his mind through a supernatural connection with the murderer, groomed as a sacrificial lamb by his mentor, ignored by his teachers and guardians whenever he tried to warn them about anything, and generally used, abused, or neglected by just about every adult in his life, just might grow up to be a dysfunctional, imperfect parent. So I think she might know him a little better than you.
When I saw the video of the father and daughter singing “Home” by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, it melted my heart and I may even have welled up a little bit each time I watched it this week. Now, I can’t stop listening to the song and it makes me just a little nostalgic for home.
“Home” makes me want to jump in a car (with someone else, of course-I’m driver license-less), drive across the country singing this atop my lungs heading for the California coastline. But for now, it’ll just have to do on repeat.
Hey do you have any headcannons for Will's mum? Just curius.🙄
I’m not very good at head-canons, but I’ll give this a shot! *cracks knuckles*
Has black curls and bright blue eyes
Will got his eyes from his mother
Will and his mother both have smiles that can water crops and grow plants
Mama Solace also has Clear Sight
Can tell right off the bat when Apollo walks into the bar she’s singing at
Her eyes bug out, and she stops mid-song, but after a bit of stuttering, she manages to finish her performance
“What are you?” she demands, when he comes backstage to congratulate her for a wonderful performance
Naomi Solace is sure Gods are not supposed to look that stupidly surprised.
They gradually get closer (she can’t help but be amused by Apollo, even if he does annoy her sometimes), and they end up doing the do, which is how Will is conceived.
Smiles when Apollo has to leave, because she doesn’t want him to feel guilty, but breaks down when she thinks he can’t see her
Smol Will looks exactly like his dad, and Naomi sometimes finds it hard to look at him, but she’s determined to be an awesome mother
Tries to learn Greek lullabies (and by extension, the language), and butchers the pronunciation awfully, but tries her best to sing them anyway
Tells little Will stories everyday about Apollo (and rolls her eyes internally because the Apollo she knew is not that dashing and suave, and the ancient Greeks really had to have gotten something wrong with their stories)
When Will takes an interest in medicine, she borrows books about medicine from the library to read to him.
Wishes everyday that Apollo could be here to watch their son grow up, and knows that he’ll be as proud of Will as she is.
Pretends to be sick so that Will can ‘pretend’ to fix her, in teeny-tiny scrubs and a plastic doctors kit
The monster attacks are growing more frequent, and Naomi knows it’s only a matter of time before they manage to kill Will, so she sends a seven year old Will off to Camp Half-Blood with tears in her eyes, praying to Apollo to keep him safe.
Cries when Will returns for the summer, safe and unharmed.
During the Battle of Manhatten, she prays for both her boys to make it out alive.
Falls in love with Nico when Will brings him home for lunch
Adopts him as her second son
Tries to get Nico to come over more often so she can stuff him with food
“Your Nico is too skinny, he should eat more! Tell him he can come over to eat whenever he wants!”
Whenever I'm on snapchat I see my "friends" partying without even asking me. I feel like I'm missing out, I'm home 24/7 and sad.. how can I make new contacts??🤧😞😞 ( sorry for my english, its not my first language)
Constant partying is nothing but a tendency of escapism, it’s not wanting to deal with reality, to escape the challenges of life, a lacking of responsibility. So your friends are doing you a massive favour by not dragging you into there acts of delusion. You spend this time working on yourself internally, trust me it will be much more beneficial for you, both on a material level and a spiritual. Start developing your own knowledge and wisdom of life, instead of being a collection of repetitive opinions of others. You are young still, use this time wisely. Friends come and go, but your soul remains. You don’t need new friends, you need to befriend yourself🕊🌹
hi, can I request a scenario with minghao and his s/o is feeling really down or insecure, overall sad, and he notices and how he would help her? also your writing is so wonderful, I love your scenarios!! ❤
- the weather today is exactly like your mood - dark and cloudy - the day started off normally like always and you were completely fine until you had lunch with a couple of friends - you guys have been friends for ages and your friendship is basically just filled with insults and roasting and it’s completely normal because you’re used to it right - but one of them went a little too far - they KNOW about your insecurities, they KNOW that it hurts and yet they STILL joked about it, and it didn’t help that everyone joined in - you pretended not to mind and just laughed it off but….. when you got back to your apartment….. you’re reminded of what they said and you can’t help but feel so insecure - you know you’re just being sensitive but when you constantly get made fun of it over and over again….. it really takes a toll on you - because slowly, you feel like you’re starting to believe them - after a few minutes of painful silence, you hear the front door open and you know your boyfriend minghao is back from school - he sees you on the couch and collapses on top of you - you say “minghao, get off” and he immediately looks up and he knows something’s wrong because you usually laugh or playfully push him off - when he sees your frown, he sits up properly and asks “…what’s wrong?” - you say “it’s nothing, really. i’m just being dumb and sensitive, it’ll pass” but he insists you tell him because he really doesn’t like seeing you this way - you finally give in and tell him everything that happened and everything your friends said and in the end of your explanation, you’re expecting a hug or words of comfort at least - but minghao just gets up - and leaves - that’s it. he leaves. without warning and without even saying bye. - your look of surprise and confusion slowly fades and you get REALLY ANGRY - you’re like REALLY?? ARE YOU KIDDING ME RIGHT NOW?? YOU’RE LEAVING ME WHEN I NEED YOU THE MOST?? - MINGHAO YOU JERK - you’re so mad you’re like ok you know what tomorrow i’m changing the lock you can find someplace else to sleep BYE - after spending some time in the loneliness of your own thoughts and the silence of your home, the front door swings open and minghao’s there holding a plastic bag in each hand - you say “DID YOU SERIOUSLY GO SHOPPING??” - and he just calmly says “yeah. for you.” - minghao places the bag on the dinner table and pulls out two takeout boxes from your favorite restaurant, tubs of your favorite flavors of ice cream, dvd’s of your favorite dramas he probably borrowed from seungkwan, and even a cute sweater - you slowly walk over to your boyfriend and you just stare at all the things he brought - you say “….what’s all this?” - minghao laughs and says “THIS….. will all help you feel better” he then holds the sweater out to you and says “ah and this is the sweater you wanted the other day right?? i had to backflip my way to the stand to beat this girl who wanted the sweater too lol” - you don’t say anything the entire time he sets up the drama and gives you the food and he’s the only one laughing during the drama while you just stay quiet - he eventually notices that you’re not fangirling during the cute scenes like you always do and that’s when he pauses it and asks “are you… okay?” - you turn to look at him - and tears roll down your cheeks - at that, minghao starts to panic and he’s like !!! DID I DO SOMETHING WRONG ??? I WAS SUPPOSED TO CHEER YOU UP IF I CAN’T EVEN DO THIS MUCH HOW CAN I CALL MYSELF YOUR BOYFRIEND - and then he starts saying a bunch of things in chinese and he’s tripping all over himself and seeing him this way - you LAUGH - you’re laughing uncontrollably and minghao just looks at you in confusion - when you calm down, you say “minghao, i was crying of happiness” and he just goes like “….oh” - and when he sits back down, you cup his cheeks and kiss him on the forehead and he just melts - you smile and say “thank you” and he pulls you close and hugs you tightly - now whenever you come home after a bad day - he knows exactly how to make you smile again
A certain patient:
Look, I can't sleep at night. I try really hard but after hours of tossing and turning hell I am still awake. It sucks more whenever I see shooting stars. It feels, you know, so LONELY. So I wander around at night and talk to an old photo of him once I'm home. Sometimes I whisper his name over and over again to calm myself down and while this does lessen the pain for a brief moment my heart gradually hurts more when I recognize his absence. And the more I think about it the more I feel like I'm missing the other half of my soul. Dammit doctor, why does it hurt so much to live without my FRIEND 'ttebayo
Naruto, for the thirtieth time, can't you tell you're in love?
Hi, I love all the homes you make, and how you often use skylights and stuff. I'm just wondering, how do you do that (use skylights) without the roof disappearing from the room? I've been struggling with this myself.... whenever i try to place skylights in a room, the room is "open"/i can't have a roof in that room anymore. Sorry to bother you, but I didn't know who else to ask. Thank you for taking the time to answer.
Thank you sweetie :) hmm I don’t know exactly what you mean. but hope this will help you!
I’ve probably mentioned this before but my granddad on my mum’s side always had an excellent sense of humour; even when he was in hospital and knew that he was dying, every time a nurse came in to ask how he was feeling, without fail, he’d tell her “oh I was just doing cartwheels down the hallway. Didn’t you see?” Years before, when he had more energy, he’d rile all of us kids up every time we visited by teaching us the family game, Tipped You Last, and whenever he came to our place he’d stomp his feet and jump around to get our old staffy dog, Roger, as excited as possible.
He had a very specific request for his death notice when the time came. As per his instructions, and to the horror of the lady in charge of his funeral, his death notice in the paper began with “Norm has carked it!”
I like to think we’re keeping his sense of humour alive; when asked what music they wanted to be played at his funeral, my family suggested the opening theme to his favourite news channel. Days before his funeral, my cousin picked me up from uni and drove me home, and we spent the entire time making jokes until we cried. On the day of the funeral, my cousins and I decided to go out drinking after, because “granddad would do the same”.
Even now, whenever we have family photos, we insist on making the ‘Norm Face’, a sort of toothy snarl.
Anyway. My granddad Norm was an incredible, uplifting man, who shaped so much of my childhood, and I’ll never forget him. And if there is something after this life, I can’t wait to play Tipped You Last with him like we did ten years ago.
Hey robbie, my dog is getting really old, and i've had her for as long as i can remember. Im pretty sure we got her when i was like 3. Anyways she doesn't have much time left. It's really hard because she's turned into my little mental health pup who i can pet and play with whenever i'm sad or nervous. I don't want her to go, but i know i can't control it. Do you have any ideas as to how i can prepare myself to lose her, or at least any tips to make her last few weeks the best possible?
Think about how much she looks up to u as her friend and companion and how happy she gets when u come home from school. She is happy when ur happy and she wants u to stay that way! When her time comes try not to dwell on the fact that she’s gone but replay your happy memories of her in ur head, that way she will always be alive through you.
