Snape Appreciation Month day 26: Favourite AU

The “Snape Lives au”, OBVIOUSLY.
I liked the idea of Harry’s “you-have-your-mother’s-eyes” eyes being the last thing Snape saw after Nagini’s attack and also the first thing he saw after regaining consciousness in this Au (in which they somehow manage to save him).
And of course, the first words he would utter would be full of snark.
If Snape is being his usual snarky self, he’s surely feeling ok enough (that’s why Harry laughs).

(let me bask in my aus, ‘mkay? I know how the actual story goes)

DO.NOT.REPOST AND DO NOT DELETE THE DESCRIPTION.

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.

the Doctors as Homestuck classes

The aspect of the Doctor is obviously Time, and I really liked the idea that he would have a different class with each regeneration. Because that’s what regeneration is - you’re essentially the same person, just your appearance and attitude changes, so your aspect stays the same, you just interact with it in a different way.

These may not be 100% accurate, I haven’t watched all of Classic Who so I know some Doctors much better than the others.

1 - Thief. Stole the TARDIS and also two school teachers. Left his granddaughter on Earth and broke the TARDIS of another renegade Time Lord, the Monk (so stole their time-travelling abilities from them)

2 - Rouge. He had companions from different time periods, stealing them for their advantage. For example, he took an orphaned girl from the Victorian era and she ended up finding a new loving family in 2017

3 - Page. Starts with a lack of his aspect, being stuck on Earth, unable to fix the TARDIS to leave it for the longest time. Fixes it later and indulges in more awesome time shenanigans.

4 - Heir. Tom Baker has been the Doctor on screen for the longest time (7 years), he’s the icon of classic Who, embodying it in some way. Also he’s weird, like his wibbly-wobbly aspect.

5 - Mage. Mages suffer, and that’s what Peter Davison is really good for. He passes out in like, half of his episodes, if not more. Also during has era one of the most tragic deaths of a classic companion happened.

6 - Bard. The producers didn’t treat Colin Baker’s Doctor too well, so he became possibly the most unpopular Doctor. Although he’s redeemed in the books and audioplays. Also had an interesting dark side to him.

7 - Maid. He was really dark and had weird relationships with spacetime rules, sometimes really sticking to them, sometimes blatantly breaking them.

8 - Sylph. As the TV show was put on a 16-year-old hiatus, Paul Mcgann’s Doctor kept the fandom alive first in the TV movie and then in the countless audioplays.

9 - Seer. I feel like out of all the doctors, Christopher Eccleston’s was the best at “feeling” the time. Like in that scene from “The end of the world” when he was able to walk through the fast spinning fans. Or his speech in “Rose” about feeling the Earth spin under his feet.

10 - Prince. As the seasons evolved, Ten’s destructive intentions unraveled more and more, ending with “Doctor Victorious”. See “The Family of Blood” and “The Waters of Mars” when he literally went against the laws of time.

11 - Witch. The most time shenanigan inducing Doctor. Rewrote the laws of time on multiple occasions.

12 - Knight. Spent 4 billion years in the Confession dial for Clara and lost his vision protecting Bill. Nuff said.

❛ I want to scream at myself, “don’t go you idiot.” ❜
❛ That’s what you said. ❜

On the subject of the one way I’d say internet fandoms have changed…

I mentioned in my previous post that one major difference I’ve seen from the fandoms of the 90s and the fandoms of today is that you get people using fandom to scream about social issues.

But after talking with it with some folks over Discord I remembered… that’s not entirely new.

A lot of folks here are too young to remember what happened with things like Pokemon and Harry Potter back in the 90s. (Or even further back, the old rallies against things like Dungeons and Dragons.)

People burned books. People tried to ban TV shows. People screamed that you shouldn’t read these books, play these games, watch these shows, because if you did, you would be possessed by demons, you would try to use psychic powers, you would start to abuse animals.

But the thing was… the vast majority of kids knew the stuff they were reading/playing/watching was fictional. Yes, there was that one kid who jumped out a window thinking he could fly like a Pidgeotto, but that’s one kid out of millions. Does an entire show need to be cancelled because one person did not understand that humans do not have the ability to fly like birds? Folks in the fandoms knew that the Pokemon they were catching and trading were purely fictional, that you couldn’t actually wave a stick around and whisper some bad latin to make something float into the air.

You’ll still hear bits of that here and there–people totally detached from fandom screaming about how a show or book will make you do bad things–but for the most part that’s quieted down quite a bit.

…Sort of.

After thinking about it… that sort of stuff really hasn’t gone away. It’s resurfaced, not outside of fandom, but inside fandom, in the form of fandom policing.

“DON’T SHIP THIS PAIRING, OR YOU’LL THINK THIS KIND OF RELATIONSHIP IS OKAY IN REAL LIFE!”

“YOU’RE NOT ALLOWED TO LIKE THIS CHARACTER! HE DID BAD THINGS AND YOU’RE SUPPORTING THOSE BAD THINGS!”

“IF YOU CRITICIZE THIS CHARACTER’S ACTIONS, YOU’LL WIND UP ATTACKING REAL-LIFE VICTIMS!”

To me, this doesn’t sound much different from the old cry of “DON’T PLAY POKEMON, OR YOU’LL BECOME GREEDY AND EVIL AND TRY TO INTERACT WITH DEMONS!” and “IF YOU READ HARRY POTTER, YOU’LL SELL YOUR SOUL TO THE DEVIL!”

Yes, you will get the occasional idiot who thinks that because they saw a character they like do something bad, that means it’s okay for them to do that bad thing, too. But that’s not most of the fandom. Not that that will stop the fandom police from trying to censor every single fandom member due to the actions of one or two.

So in short… I guess fandom has changed a little, but only in that the censorship is now coming from the inside rather than the outside.

History repeats itself, I guess.

I have no idea why. It was obviously a marketing strategy to appeal to different areas of female personalities and wants and needs. ‘I might want a cute one’, ‘I might want a cheeky one’, ‘I might want a mysterious one’, that’s all it was.” [He’s smiling — he doesn’t seem bitter about having been a pick’n’mix pop puppet.] “It’s cool, that’s life, I guess. I don’t really think of myself as mysterious, but maybe I am.
—  In One Direction he was tagged “the mysterious one”.

junowaffles  asked:

Okay, I want to know if either Keith or Shiro ever got so drunk, that one of them bought an exotic animal and forget about it. Also could the animal be the same color has their lions?

[The Voltron Family] Shiro came back in with the mail. The kids were still sleeping since it was only 7am on a Sunday. As he went through with all the mails, he handed the ones meant for Keith on the table. Keith was drinking his usual cold chocolate drink as he gathered his mail. Shiro sat down across his husband in the breakfast table as he grabbed his tea. 

Keith: *goes through the letters* Electric bill, water bill… *hums* *opens the electric bill one* *eyes widens* My god.
Shiro: *raises an eyebrow at Keith*
Keith: Our bill is $1000 for this month. *gapes at Shiro* What on earth did we do this month that we used too much electricity??
Shiro: Hmmmm. *ponders* It’s summer, Keith. It’s to be expected.
Keith: But $1000? Did we suddenly have centralized air conditioning?
Shiro: You know, I was actually going to discuss that with you.
Keith: No, Shiro. We are not going to have centralized air conditioning. We have three floors in case you forgot. *rolls eyes* *mutters* This family needs to know how to save. We have a swimming pool for a reason. Use that if you feel so hot. *grumbles while glaring at the bill*
Shiro: Then our water bill will—
Keith: It’s cheaper than electricity. So. Plus, books are available for entertainment. We’ll have a family meeting about game console usage.
Shiro: *chuckles* You can’t do that, Keith! It’s their source of fun! 

Shiro just shook his head at his husband. He went back to his own mail, opening the credit card bill.

Shiro: *eyes widens* Keith.
Keith: Hmmm? *looking at the other bills*
Shiro: Did you somehow buy something worth $8000?
Keith: *snaps his head towards Shiro* What? Why would I buy something that’s worth $8000? Who in the right mind would?
Shiro: Keith. *shows him the bill* I swear to god, I did not buy anything this much. At least not in these past few months.
Keith: *shock* So you think I would?

Both obviously didn’t have any idea where the big amount came from, so Shiro had to call the bank to confirm.

Operator: Ah, yes, Mr. Shirogane. It says right here the purchase was done on March 31st around 11pm. 
Shiro: At 11pm? *eyes Keith*
Keith: *shrugs* 
Shiro: May I ask what was the purchased?
Operator: It was a squirrel monkey.
Shiro: *shocked* A SQUIRREL MONKEY
Keith: *eyes widens in horror*
Operator: Yes, sir. They are really expensive too.
Shiro: And this was using… my credit card? 
Operator: Yes, sir. *continues explaining and giving more details*
Shiro: *gulps* Yeah, okay, thank you.

Shiro placed down his phone on the table and saw Keith’s head buried in his stack of mail, groaning… in pain

Shiro: Keith. 
Keith: I was out on March 31st with Kuro. Remember that time? I got drunk.
Shiro: *crosses arms* Yes, I was informed. You wouldn’t stop kissing me. You called me a “sex god.”
Keith: *groans* Don’t remind me. Not my best night. *head still buried*
Shiro: You were drunk, I get that. But how did a squirrel monkey get into the picture?
Keith: *moves head to the side to look at Shiro* I may or may have not entered an exotic pet shop.
Shiro: And?
Keith: And the monkey was yellow and it reminded me of Hunk. I wanted to get Hunk the monkey. So I purchased it. *bites lip*
Shiro: Using my card?
Keith: Yeah. We used your car that night, so. *shuts eyes in shame*
Shiro: Okay. *takes a deep breath* Okay. May I ask where this 8 grand monkey is now? 
Keith: *slowly opens eyes* That’s the thing. I don’t know. 
Shiro: What do you mean you don’t know?
Keith: I mean it as it is. I feel like I might have… released it somewhere. I dunno. It’s a bit blurry.
Shiro: You let go of an 8 grand monkey… in the city.
Keith: Forest, maybe. I dunno. There were trees. 
Shiro: Keith.
Keith: I’m sorry! I’ll pay for that $8000 no big deal!!! *panics*
Shiro: *can’t really stay mad* *chuckles* 
Keith: *looks up* You’re… not mad?
Shiro: I mean, I am. That’s 8k, Keith! But you’ll pay for it anyway so that’s not my problem anymore.
Keith: *pouts*
Shiro: I am amused you bought an exotic animal and forgot about it though.
Keith: Remind me not to get drunk with your brother again. *rolls eyes*
Shiro: You’re not getting anywhere near alcoholic drinks again. Who knows what you might buy next time. I don’t want a lion in this— *stops to think about* Actually, that might—
Keith: TAKASHI, NO.
