i obviously have no idea

Harry Naming His Children

I just can’t stop thinking about James and Sirius and Remus in the afterlife, watching over Harry. And when he has his first child, James and Sirius are ecstatic that Harry chooses to name him after them. And Remus smiles benevolently and doesn’t say anything of course, but maybe feels just a tad left out. Sirius can tell and he pats him on the shoulder, saying, “Next time! You’ll see!” 

And then next time arrives and what does Harry choose? Albus Severus. And Remus understands, and he’s really not upset. But Sirius is. Sirius just cannot believe that Harry would choose to name his son after Snivellus, the man who had made his godson’s and his own life miserable (so what if he loved Lily), before he honored Remus. Remus, who had been a mentor and friend to Harry. Remus, who had named Harry godfather of his own child. Remus, who was one of the best men Sirius had ever known despite having a childhood that was probably much shittier than Snape’s. Remus, who deserved to be honored by Harry every bit as much as Sirius did, and certainly a thousand times more than Snape.

And for the first time in his life, Sirius is truly disappointed in his godson. And he can’t even let Harry know. And he just has to live with this awful feeling for years and years, and nothing Remus says can make it any better.

Until one day Sirius notices something. He notices how there are always four kids at the Potter house. He’d always thought it was just Harry being nice because Andromeda was getting pretty old by now, but once he starts paying attention, he notices how every time Harry talks about “his kids,” that includes Teddy Lupin. How Teddy is in all of the Potter family portraits. How James, Al, and Lily refer to Teddy as their older brother. 

And one day Sirius is watching as Teddy risks himself to save Albus from falling off his broom, and then proceeds to fuss over Al without once worrying about himself. And Harry runs over in a panic, and goes immediately to Teddy, who took most of the damage, checks that he’s basically alright, looks at him with tears in his eyes, and says “Teddy Remus Lupin, thank you. Thank you for saving Al. You are so much like your father.” And then he hugs him tightly and doesn’t let go for the longest time .

And Sirius’s anger evaporates just like that, and he looks over and sees that Remus has been watching too and now they are both silently crying as they watch Harry, their Harry, take care of two of his sons.

And it’s suddenly so obvious why Harry didn’t name his youngest son after Remus: because that was already the name of his oldest.

one major thing about padme’s story that i still take issue with is how quickly she forgot about shmi skywalker. still on tatooine, still a slave, her only child taken from her, miserable and worked to the bone until her violent and lonely death at the hands of the sand people. no. 

if i know padme, then she went back for the woman who gave her a meal and a warm bed in an unfriendly port when padme was literally fleeing for her life. shmi showed her incredible kindness even when she had every right to be jaded and cynical with the entire gd universe. padme was horrified to learn that slavery still existed in the galaxy! how could she forget about the enslaved woman who took her in?

and for george lucas to decide that shmi was a write-off character that everyone, EVERYONE, except anakin, her own son, forgot/didnt care about, is lazy and terrible writing. i dont buy that for a second. padme was led by ironclad morals and for her to forget the slave woman who saved her on tatooine so she could return to a life of opulence on coruscant is just…. not true in my eyes. the jedi couldn’t/wouldn’t do anything about it but that shouldnt have stopped padme. 

shmi deserved better than that.

It hasn’t been too obvious here on tumblr, but those who follow me on ig will know that I’ve been obsessed with this AU for months. So! I love the movie When Marnie was there, and while I was watching it for the nth time I thought “Hey, a victuuri AU would be nice!”, so I have like a ton of sketches about this, and I finally drew something “serious” lol. (*Spoiler*: I’llchangethefactthatMarniewastheprotagonist’sgrandmaforthisAUtho, cough

some things people need to get straight

Don’t buy puppies from pet stores to “save the puppies from being mistreated!!” While this is done with the best of intentions, the puppy mill problem isn’t really about the puppies- the actual puppies are usually treated okay, it’s the parents that are kept in horrible conditions and forced to breed until they die. While you may be giving a home to one dog if you buy from a pet store, you’re supporting the misery of hundreds of other dogs with your money.

USDA certification isn’t a sign of a reputable breeder. It’s actually the mark of a puppy mill and if you see this, run fast in the opposite direction. CKC registration (Continental Kennel Club, not Canadian) is also a huge red flag.

But having AKC registered puppies doesn’t mean they’re reputable, either. While most good breeders (in the US) will have AKC registration, AKC isn’t picky about which dogs they register, so plenty of bad breeders do too. Also, “champion bloodlines” means nothing unless they’re at least in the second or third generations of a pedigree. 

Stereotyping breeds is not “like racism for dogs”. Humans weren’t strategically bred for hundreds of years to develop traits to assist them in specific tasks. Dogs were, so retrievers retrieve, greyhounds run, shepherds herd, and terriers fight. It’s not “all in how you raise them”. Genetics. They do stuff. Science. And hey could we maybe not compare the systemic oppression of minorities to people saying chihuahuas are barky? Thanks

Designer breeds i.e. labradoodles, maltipoos, cavachons etc. are not “the best of both worlds!” Again, genetics…that’s not how they work. Also realize that most of these dogs (especially since they are common products of puppy mills) don’t come from well-bred parents because reputable breeders generally don’t allow their dogs to be used to breed crosses. Like I’ve seen poodle breeders literally write it in their puppy contracts that they will take back the dog if they find out it’s being used to create “doodles”. 

If you support importing foreign rescue dogs but use the “overpopulation of shelter dogs in the US” factoid to protest dog breeding you’re a fucking hypocrite.

Don’t tell people “you can find any breed in a shelter!” Like ??? Yeah lemme just go find Cesky Terrier at my local humane society! I genuinely have no idea why people say this when it’s obviously not true?

Puppies aren’t a blank slate, and adult dogs don’t all come with awful baggage. If a puppy is genetically predisposed to aggression, all the early socialization in the world might not help at all. And while any adult dog will be shaped by its past, not all rescue dogs are abused and many are there because of circumstances completely unrelated to them and have had perfectly normal lives. You also have the advantage of already knowing their temperament, energy level, and any behavioral issues.

She follows Tyrion’s lead and asks for a trial by combat, knowing that she will not get a fair trial anyway.

If somebody came to me in 20 years and asked what I learned from YouTube it would be to just treat people with respect. To be nice to people, to be interactive with them, to treat people like people and not treat them like a sub counter on the top of your channel. Treat people like individuals, that everyone out there has a voice. Everyone out there has a story and a personality all on their own and they’re worth listening to. I just hope that we can continue that as the channel moves forward.

Some headcanons for V in the chat rooms because we I need this:

  • Both V and Seven have admin rights. 
  • V also has a unique feature: he can hide his online status. No one will know he’s there unless he wants them to. 
  • Even Seven can’t see him. They both know he can immediately change that whenever he wants, but he didn’t see the need.
  • After all, he trusted V.
  • So V is online more often than everyone thinks he is. He often goes through old chats, checking up on everyone and seeing how things are going. If they’re happy.
    • And if they’re safe.
  • V wields the banhammer.
  • Since he’s got admin rights, he can remove comments, close and delete chat rooms, and ban a member from the chat if he wants to.
  • I know what you’re thinking. This sweet blue boy would never do something so mean.
  • Wrong.
  • He only does it once in a while, and never out of malice. 
  • But sometimes V will come along, look at all the shitposting, and kick someone out of the chat. 
  • It’s almost always Jumin, though Seven and Zen got banned a couple times. 
  • If Jumin throws some shade or Seven keeps spamming emojis or Zen sends a particularly good selfie, they’re out.
  • “Banned.” 
  • He makes sure Seven is an active participant in the chat at the time so he can immediately remove the ban from whoever V decides to tease
  • Seriously, this man is so snarky during the party in Jumin’s route. He is completely capable of trolling. 
    • Where do you think Seven gets it from?
  • Everyone knows it’s just a joke, and no one holds it against him (even if they’re a bit exasperated. C’mon V).
  • He stops after Rika’s ‘death’.
  • Stops coming. Stops joking. Just…stops. 
  • If V survived the secret endings…
  • He still doesn’t come back to the chat room.
  • People are still pissed, and for good reason. He doesn’t want to burden them anymore. 
  • Seven revoked all admin privileges a while back anyway. He has nowhere to hide. 
  • Slowly, slowly, things start to change. 
  • V gets the help he needs, and Jumin is the first to forgive. 
  • Jaehee and Zen follow afterwards. 
  • The mood in the chat rooms shifts when V first starts appearing again. 
  • It’s awkward, uncomfortable, and enough for V to stop trying at first. 
  • But he loves them. He wants to make sure they’re okay. He can’t help himself, and even if he could, Jumin isn’t about to let him go.
  • As time goes on, things relax. Everyone knows the truth, after all, and while they will not and cannot forget, the chat slowly returns to normal when V is present.
    • Shitposts galore. 
    • The RFA are just walking shitposts. 
  • V knows things have changed when Yoosung mentions that V never banned him from any chat. 
  • V doesn’t mention that he never banned Rika either. Instead, he admits he didn’t want to pick on Yoosung. 
  • It’s not like he thinks Yoosung ever did anything that would warrant a ban anyway, even if it was just a joke.
  • Yoosung’s reply? “We’ll see about that.” 
  • When he enters the next chat and responds to every comment with a quote from LOLOL, V chokes up. 
  • He never got his admin status back, and doesn’t think he deserves it anyway, but it’s the thought that counts.
  • “Banned.”
