one day, frustrated at sirius’s distracting roughhousing and lack of consideration, remus lupin turns in his seat and shouts, “i told you to be quiet because some of us have exams tomorrow! i’m dead serious about this, so if you could please take your rioting elsewhere i’d appreciate it!”
to remus’s dismay, sirius merely snickers, “dead sirius, huh? poor moony, struggling to study for exams he’s already prepared for,” and proceeds to repeat “dead sirius” exaggeratedly to the gryffindor common room at large. after a little while sulking over his arithmancy, remus good-naturedly gives in to the inevitable as usual, joining in the common room fun.
from then on, remus’s frequent, often inadvertent use of “i’m dead serious!” becomes the butt of many of sirius’s jokes. remus learns to use the phrase sparingly, but it still pops out unawares from time to time as remus scolds sirius in an angry or emotional state. fond as he is of padfoot, remus tries to dissuade sirius from his constant puns, but the amusingly annoying habit sticks.
nearly twenty years later, remus lupin finds himself back in hogwarts, not for class but for battle, not for learning or teaching but for spells roared in anger and fear, wand slashing violently, nearly a blur. lights flash, almost blinding him, and as remus falls, wand clattering down the stone corridor, he remembers one day many years ago filled with warmth and laughter and wordplay. smiling ever so slightly, remus lupin murmurs for the last time, “i’m dead, sirius”–and thus professor lupin’s last words are a shared joke, a fond memory, and an ironic twist of fate.
Ok this may be the cheesiest prompt ever but listen..
Sherlock is a wedding planner. He’s THE wedding planner. Everyone knows him, everyone wants him. He’s able to cater to even the most peculiar whims his clients may have. But he’s a nightmare to work with, of course. He can predict exactly how long a marriage’s gonna last and is extremely picky about the projects he takes on.
So when unassuming, plain, “do we really have to? We don’t need a freaking fairy godmother following us around!” John Watson reluctantly limps his way in 221b, with his more than enthusiastic fiancé, “don’t be absurd, John, of course we do, since you clearly can’t distinguish lilac from purple!” Mary Morstan, it’s clear as day the ill-assorted couple is doomed from the beginning. But instead of dissmissing them on the spot, he promptly decides that the project is definitely worth working on…
Pity that his number one rule is do not get involved with the groom!
But that’s alright because artiste extraordinaire “But what do you mean ‘any variety of Peruvian Lilies will do’? I don’t understand, they’re all thoroughly different from each other! ” and fed up army doctor “listen here cheekbones, I don’t give a monkey’s if she walks down the aisle with a bouquet of portoguese artichokes alright, I’m bloody knackered, I just want to.. is that double chocolate fudge cake?” drive each other completely up the wall.. right?
You wouldn't have any headcanons about Clarisse and Chris Rodriguez, would you?
Thanks for sending an ask!!! I’m always happy to take requests, so I wrote some headcanons for you!! :) I hope you like them!
Clarisse is very overprotective of Chris
And by that I mean that if anyone mentions the fact that Chris was on Kronos’s side in a way that blames him, or brings it up against him, she will not be happy
Chris feels constantly guilty for the fact he went over to Luke’s side initially, and he’s told Clarisse that
Everyone’s quite surprised by their relationship? Like constantly?
When they first start going out everyone makes bets on how long they’re going to last
Everyone loses, because no one thought they’d be going so strong after all this time
They go to Phoenix together for university, and Clarisse hides it, but she’s super, super excited
She finally gets the chance to be normal and be with her boyfriend and it’s everything she wasn’t sure she’d get
Needless to say, Chris balances her in any social situation
He makes sure she’s not too aggressive, but she also makes sure he doesn’t remain too shy, because a lot of the time Chris isn’t great at introducing himself to new people
One of the things that surprises people the most is how unfazed Chris is whenever Clarisse gets angry or basically starts acting like a typical Ares kid, loud and brash
Chris doesn’t even react, but he’s also a match for Clarisse (that’s one of the reasons they work so well together)
Clarisse doesn’t like to share her insecurities, so she doesn’t tell anyone she hates the big house, hates going there now
It all stems from that time when Chris was insane, and she had to look after him in there… going to that room brings it all back
Chris never says anything, but he notices, and he’ll try and make sure they avoid the big house as much as possible
Every year, in the summer, comes the anniversary of Silena’s death. Clarisse always gets super moody and temperamental at these times, trying to deal with her emotions, and it’s only Chris who can calm her down
They have a spot in the woods where they kissed for the first time, some time after Dionysus cured Chris of his madness
It becomes their favourite spot, and the best thing about it is that no one knows about it (or at least, that’s what they think. Don’t tell them that one time Percy Jackson saw them holding hands there.)
Chris wants to become a better fighter, and Clarisse agrees to teach him
Chris actually becomes pretty good
Every so often when they’re placed on opposite teams for capture the flag, things become intense
They both want to win, and so they’ll try their hardest, just because, why not?
Clarisse usually comes out on top due to the fact that she’s got the might of the Ares cabin behind her
But one time Chris spends ages planning the ultimate strategy (he had Annabeth’s help, but don’t tell anyone), and trains for weeks
Sure enough, he wins, and he personally disarms her
He winks at her
“Don’t take it too personally,” he says. “I learnt from the best”
That’s the moment Clarisse realises how much she loves this idiot
Sorry for anon but i'm extremely shy and i'm bad at socializing but i want to know if you have any VLD OCs or just OCs?
It’s ok, i’m a rambling mess when it comes to talking for the first time with people so i understand you. I don’t have Voltron original characters, but i’m working on RPG s-f game so i have a lot of them You can call them yellow moon blue dragon team or just Yami (her) and Yukito (him). They are still in development. These 2 are like my oldest and favourite ocs (2013). Dynamic kinda works like kidge or pidgance so i was so happy to watch VLD because they reminds me of them so much. XD
Hey uh. By the way. Don’t give me shit for this, I’m just explaining the phenomenon. To straight people, the rainbow flag is the HOMOSEXUAL flag, not the Gay Man flag. To straight people, Gay is a lesbian-inclusive term. If you ever see a person put up a rainbow flag but no Lesbian flag, there’s a very very good chance that they don’t realize the 2 things are separate. So don’t worry about it. Just calmly explain.
