ik davids not crying but hey I’m a sucker for making it more dramatic. I spent like 5 to 6 hours on this and I am still not really satisfied with it, but ah well. I saw ppl doing like screenshot art thingies so I decided to do that with my favorite scene in camp camp, and I’m positive someone has probably done a screenshot thing for this scene as well. eh oh well. heeree it iss .. (btw my captions are gold, fyi)
Hamilton; English … more like *screams* Laurens; Ha! That’s gay … *whispers* same Mulligan; My beanie collection has recently reached 17 … *sinister whisper* I need more Lafayette; Oui oui motherfuckers! Burr; If you don’t shut up, I can and will push you off a cliff Washington; *sudden realisation* Holy shit, I’m the dad friend … Angelica; Just because I’m in heels doesn’t mean I can’t kick your ass Eliza; *screaming* Everything is just so fucking pretty! Peggy; I am a living meme Maria; I like the phrase ‘fuck me’ because it can be taken two ways Jefferson; *bursts into the room* Yes, hello, it is me! I am here to grace you all with my wonderful presence! Madison; *screaming* I am currently injured! Philip; My last words will probably be “Well shit!” Seabury; I am a walking talking bible King George III; My love for you burns like this house I’m about to set on fire
ummm … why was this video so cute??? why was phil offering up nostalgic stories from his childhood every 3 minutes? why were they so fond of the family bonding time? of picking childrens clothing for dab???? ive not felt true emotions during a sims vid in so long??????? ? anyway here r some thoughts:
why did they try to make bowling strike noises for 30 actual whole seconds
phil dragging dan for not being able to read the word ‘mirage.’ good
the fact that phil kinda sorta equated the connotations of ’mate’ and ‘friend’ with ‘partner’ gave me heart palpitations ahhhhh partner is legit my fav word for what dnp are to each other and to hear it used in the same context as phil’s cheeky use of friend/mate was v affirming
apparently a typical dad move, according to phil, is stealing your child’s electronics. when phil got his first iPhone his dad took it and put angry birds on it? for some reason this is vital information to me
letting your child have cake on the bed is terrible parenting. both of them agree
when phil was a kid he had a toy where you rubbed its back and sparks came out. uhhh cute and also concerning
phil singing ‘fireman dan’ made me giggle and simultaneously forced me to reminisce on the fireman pic from their ‘dan and phil go to work’ calendar
the wholeeeeee bit where they’re looking through dab’s clothing choices made my heart melt. they are so supportive of eccentric fashion choices and they’re def going to be the dads that let their kids pick out their own clothes and support their choices and their individuality no matter what
omg 4:51 and phil saying, ‘you can make references that are old dan’ holy shit this bit. once again i love phil not taking dan’s shit and i love how fucking synchronized that god damn joke noise they make is, like they somehow made them at nearly the exact same microsecond??? and i have so many thoughts about this bc they both tend to make that noise when the other messes up or says something wrong or has a word flub of some sort, and it has always struck me as being something they use to dilute the awkwardness of that kind of misspeak??? like to take the attention away from the misspeak itself and draw each other out of the awkwardness of that moment by making each other laugh w this weird goose noise instead?? which is just??? fucking cute? i feel like in this instance the applicability was that dan didn’t have a retort to phil when phil stood up for himself so instead of just staying awkwardly silent he makes this goose noise (v slightly before phil does) as a way of being like lol this is awk i have nothing to say pls help me here and phil v instinctively/automatically follows as a way of joining in and being like it’s all good, you’re good, this is chill, pls don’t feel awk for not coming up w a witty response, and look now we’re laughing!!! and that’s the purpose that noise generally always serves them?? at least it seems that way to me, but idk like obvi i have no real basis for understanding exactly what the origin and meaning of this reflex is for them, this is sort of just how it seems from the many instances we’ve seen of them doing this. either way overall it’s just such a cute and warm lil thing they do bc its so obvi instinctive at this point and a shared gesture that makes them laugh and i love it
phil wasn’t allowed ripped/distressed jeans when he was younger. those traditionalist lesters staying true to their colors
dan thinks phil could be a stylist wow that is like the height of praise coming from the dark prince of fashion himself
dan thinks its cute when dab is in the parental bed while phil yells ‘get out’ hahahaha
phil used to talk to the monster under his bed bc of course he did
ok omg the whole bit starting at 9:30. holy shit y’all. i’m baffled. they’re having what seems like a v benign convo about sleepovers during their youth and talking about the frustrations of having to sleep on the floor and dan says “the older you get, the more you’re like what the hell i’m so uncomfortable i wish i was just asleep right now.” and then wATCH HIM from 9:38 to 9:42 like what is he doing why did he follow up that contextually very chill statement with that intense stare into the camera and pointed sip of his water I’m SO confused. this immediately made me think about double meanings to that statement and the main thing that occurred to me was that it was an allusion to their separate beds,, that the older you get the more you value comfort when you’re sleeping over the fun of having a “sleepover with your friend” and one possible fix for that is sleeping in a separate bed to your “””friend”””???? idk??? am v open to other interpretations tho i have no idea, and like of course maybe dan is just being inadvertently cheeky but idk that jst seemed like SUCH an intentional stare and i am going to be kept up at night wondering what it all MEANS
dank brekkerini dan’s right i want to fight him for that
phil’s grandma used to cut up apples and sprinkled sugar on them depending on the activities they were doing wow why is his whole family quite literally the sweetest
phil correcting dan by pointing out that you could always cook a gourmet meal and dan’s only available response being “well … shut up” wow fucking shots fired
dan is incensed at the wasted breakfast bar. why is dan literally obsessed w breakfast bars
12:56 another synchronized moment when they both say brayden in an obnoxious attempt at an american accent
i love that they are both immediately in agreement that the only reason to go to a bowling alley would be to play on the ddr machine fuckin nerds
martyn worked as a mascot at a bowling alley for his work experience prime lester family trivs. also cute ass mental image
their shared reflection about bowling with the bumpers up and the dumb toxic masculinity of teenage boys fuCK YES
editing mistake numero uno: they overlaid a backing track for tabitha’s bowling turn starting at 14:27 but then kept the music in for like a full THREE AND A HALF minutes omg (it plays on repeat until 17:57 lmao i was ready to click out of the video it was so annoying)
editing mistake numero dos: they do the exACT SAME THING with yet another backing track starting at 19:57 and continuing for like one min this time ugh omg (tbh its kind of fun to see such a blatant reminder that they’re just human beings who were either v jet lagged or v distracted by their fam vacay while editing this)
this video was good. i’m gonna go shower and continue to be haunted by that fucking sleepover comment and dan’s stare. good night
Favourite things about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 - WITH SPOILERS (kinda) and in no particular order
- Chris Pratt’s ACTING - the moment the villain’s plot is unveiled - HOLY SHIT - Rocket humming along to “Southern Nights” - Yondu - just EVERYTHING about him, EVERY. LITTLE. THING. - Mantis (hilarious, cute, adorable = INSTANT NEW FAVOURITE CHARACTER) - relationship between Rocket and Yondu (some of the best character relationship development I’ve seen in like… ever, Idk) - Rocket, Yondu and the bloodiest yet most effective bonding scene EVER (I was genuinely moved in spite of the horrendous body count, and I feel kinda bad but IT WAS HEART-WARMING) - relationship between Mantis and Drax - use of Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” in the final battle (EPIC, HOLY SHIT) - just perfectly written characters everywhere - Kraglin (Sean Gunn is fucking amazing tbh) - the whole Taserface running gag - Star-Lord’s little smile for Gamora at the end *SWOON* - the whole ending because it was perfect (I cried but it was still perfect) - Quill playing catch with his dad (I also cried) - “Promise not to hurt Groot and I’ll tell you…” - Pissed-off Nebula - Nebula character development - oh hey we casually introduced the best MCU villain yet (Loki doesn’t count as a villain in my eyes…) - Star-Lord in general (always) - Rocket in general (also always) - I LOVED THIS MOVIE OKAY

(blacklist as 1.5ff is you don’t want to see this, you get the gist)
best quality: People joke that he’s “Daddy Jumin”, but I honestly think he really is the dad of the RFA. Like Seven, he keeps a watchful eye on the other members, although Jumin is least likely to take direct action unless he knows it’s appropriate (or when V tells him to.) But when he takes action, holy shit does he take action He sends way too many bodygaurds to all the RFA when there’s a threat, and he had the balls to actually contact Yoosung’s mom because he was genuinely concerned for the boy’s failing school life. He even said it himself: as the oldest of the group, it’s his job to look after them.
I also like that he’s not entirely the stereotypical uptight, rich character that can be seen in some anime/manga. Like always being the 100% serious and condescending one that no one in the group can really get along with. He’s just as much of a dork as the rest of them (he actually keeps tracks of how much Elizabeth the 3rd sheds and fucking means it), isn’t embarassed about what makes him a dork, has good relationships with other characters, and has much more of a range of emotions than even he may realize. It’s kind of hard to explain, but compared to other male characters that share many similar traits with Jumin, it doesn’t feel like you have to work hard to “earn” Jumin’s love (or even just his friendship) like you would have to with them. You just need to talk to him and prove trustworthy. And I liked that.
And his 1st bad end is the funniest of the bad ends. Hell, it’s the least bad out of all of them. You get to throw some wicked shade at Sarah, you end up marrying Jumin, and you end up a high-ranking and respected employee at his company. Seriously, if you didn’t get this end yet you NEED to. Forget his supposedly “kinky” Bad End 2, Bad End 1 is the way to go.
Jumin can very much be a jerk. He has a tendency to be insulting or say something backhanded, whether intentional or not. It may be due to lack of more normal social etiquette, but damn does this man lack proper tact.
For example, it’s clear he doesn’t completely understand Zen’s reasoning for not accepting his offers. Not to mention he seems to deliberately ignore the fact that Zen is ALLERGIC TO FUCKING CATS MAN. And he also thinks that simply paying Jaehee a lot of money will make up for putting up with an unsupportive working environment. Of course, when you grow up with a shit ton of money, it may be surprising that not all people value it as much as you think. But still, man, it’s not like Zen and Jaehee are subtle about their situation.
I also found his route to be rather uncomfortable at times. I personally don’t like feeling like I can’t do anything, nor do I like being told what to do or how to do things.
I get that Jumin was trying to keep you safe and he absolutely doesn’t want to lose the one person he can actually call “his”, but the way he went about handling the whole situation was overwhelming and I didn’t enjoy it. This is something Jumin acknowledges actually: that he cannot control his emotions properly and is genuinely scared that he’ll hurt you. It’s a nice flaw to have, but it’s still a flaw I wouldn’t be able to handle in MC’s shoes.
Also his hair is a pain in the ass to draw
ship them with: Hardcore ship with my Unicorn MC. I swear I’ll post something involving them one day (when I can finally tame Jumin’s hair.)
brotp them with: V is pretty much a given. I love childhood friendships, and I would kill for a canon CG of the two of them as children.
While I don’t ship them, I do believe a friendship between him and Zen would be so much fun. Zen’s route shows that they can be civil with each other and when they are, they can actually hold a normal conversation. They’d be the kind of bros that’d pick on each other a little, and then laugh about it later.
It’s my personal headcanon that Jumin actually likes taking care of people much younger than him. So he’s like a real brother to both Yoosung and Zen’s MC, the youngest of the group.
needs to stay away from: Holy hell. It’s pretty much the same answer for everyone at this point.
Let’s just go with every woman in his life that has tried to use and exploit the poor man. Especially that one step-mother (or I at least one of his father’s many mistresses) who actually tried to hit on him *shivers.* No wonder this man is emotionally numb to the opposite sex.
misc. thoughts: With everything about Jumin’s personality, his history with women, and how the other boys treat him (looking at you Zenny) there’s no denying the fact hat this man is 100% a Virigin. So while I do enjoy reading some of his kinky headcanons like the rest of the fandom, it does bother me how it’s common to exaggerate him as some BDSM, “50 Shades of Gray” daddy when I’m pretty sure next to Yoosung, he’d be the most vanilla when it comes to sex. At least at first. Kinks are something you develop with more experience, after all.
Don’t deny it, Jumin would be that one lover who needs to do extensive research on sex first and ask not-so-subtle questions to the RFA before he’d be sure he was ready to please his SO for the first time. I now desire to see Jumin go to Zen for sex-ed and tips for bedtime festivities.
best quality: s p a c e d a d - okay but like, he is literally so fucking nice holy shit and he’s gone through so much shit that he didnt deserve but he’s still so supportive and it’s like ‘i love you???’
worst quality: has a tendency to yeet out of existence when needed
ship them with: allura
brotp them with: honestly shiro and slav would have starbucks together i can see that
needs to stay away from: haggar - holy shit she’s a bad influence on him
misc. thoughts: my precious space dad who deserves so so much better
JAKE, HOLY SHIT, ARE YOU ALMOST THERE? GOD I HOPE YOU ARE
Jake: I’m on the fire escape of his building, I can fucking see his dad in the living room.
Jake: if I brake in his dad is just going to hit him, but if I don’t do this he’ll fucking die.
Jake: It’s a good thing all my rationality goes out the window for people I love.
OK it’s time I finally put down in words just how fantastic Sansukh is because this fic has taken over my life in the past two weeks and this is why (spoiler free reasons):
Bagginshield. I mean, duh.
THE QUALITY OF THE WRITING HOLY SHIT YOU GUYS
I’m not kidding it’s like reading another Tolkein epic
The fact that there is so. much. diversity. in every single possible way. Nonbinary characters? Yep. Asexual characters? Yep. Trans characters? Yep. This is all my dreams come true for fantasy I swear.
The sheer range of content from heartwarming to heartrending and everything in between, from tiny little intimate moments to the epoch-defining battles
THE DWARVES seriously I didn’t understand how much I could love dwarves until I read this
The sarcasm of elves is unparalleled.
Aragorn is such a Done Dad I love him
I mean who wouldn’t be having to deal with Gigolas every day
GIGOLAS IS PERFECT
Literally perfectly written
YOU WILL LOVE THORIN OAKENSHIELD MORE THAN YOU THOUGHT WAS EVER POSSIBLE
You get to find out what happens in Erebor in actual proper detail and that’s a whole pretty saga (as Dain might say) that’s well worth the telling.
THE SONGS. THE SONGS MAKE ME SOB EVERY SINGLE TIME.
There’s actually a fair amount of sobbing, but in a good way.
IT’S NOT EVEN OVER YET YOU HEAR ME THERE IS STILL MORE TO COME!
Please just go and read it, and thank you a million times to determamfidd for bringing this creation into the world and sharing it with us.
