Stiles knew from experience that Derek could be stubborn. He knew that mostly because Stiles held himself to a pretty high standard of stubbornness that was, on occasion, met with an even higher amount of stubbornness in the six feet that built up Derek Hale. In every instance, Stiles always found himself surprised and, if he was being honest with himself, impressed.
This was not one of those occasions.
Monday nights were dedicated to The Bachelor. Derek thought it was a fair request since it was only two hours, one night, each week, for six weeks out of the year, that he required the television in his own loft. The pack had other thoughts on the matter – the use of Derek’s television, not on The Bachelor – the pack had no clue about Derek’s secret love affair with the reality show. Derek did decide to turn four teenagers into his betas, but he was not an idiot. Okay, ignore that last example.
The point still stood that Derek had every right to lock himself in his apartment on Monday nights with a box of red wine and bowl of movie theater butter popcorn to watch a reality show that may or may not contain the use of tears, wildly concocted fights, and artfully chiseled men. The pack was settled and there hadn’t been any supernatural issues in months. Well, unless you counted the time Scott contracted a were-flu and all the werewolves in the pack were reduced to sniffling blanket piles. Stiles had shouldered the brunt of mothering everyone as they regained their strength and while he complained profusely, Derek had suspected the whole ordeal had been an ego boost for the kid.
A ding sounded from the kitchen and Derek took the popcorn out of the microwave, taking care not to burn his fingertips as he grasped it by the corners and tried in vain not to rip the bag in half. The effort was futile, as it always was, and Derek inevitably had a steaming cloud of popcorn explode in his face before falling to the floor. You would think that growing up with werewolf strength would give Derek the time and opportunity to figure out how to do something as mundane as opening a bag of popcorn without it staging a coup, but this was one skill he could not grasp. He stood there, dumbfounded, when he heard a key turn the tumblers in the apartment’s lock and Stiles walked in. He looked at Derek and blinked.
Hi again Sunny :3 I was wondering if you could share some of your favorite sheith headcannons?
i’ve never shared my headcanons for sheith before omg thanks for asking. im actually a bit nervous for some reason…… haha, probably bc i never talk about them much like this besides in private. not really sure where to start so i guess i’ll try to stick to general overall stuff. these are things i often think about and some of them are silly bc we’re gonna get so much Angst i know it - but also i just love the thought of them having a shot at being happy in the face of everything constantly pushing them apart:
neither of them can cook very well at all. just…….. don’t put them in the kitchen together honestly. like keith can survive and make things to live off but that doesn’t mean it’s amazing or tastes incredible but then sHIRO IM LAUGHING HO Y SHOUHD. just thinking of shiro’s face in the official art he looks SO TROUBLED lol. you think it’d be better to combine their skills here but it isn’t it’s a mistake and worse lmao. they are good team but this still needs work
shiro makes terrible jokes and keith always acts like he can’t believe he has to put up with shiro but he is still endeared and he can’t really even hide it that well lol
shiro bursting into cheesy songs flashmob shiro is literally the funniest thing omg he’ll just be sat there and keith will quirk and eyebrow and look over and then shiro will just start and keith should’ve known omg. let shiro act young keith makes him feel safe and comfortable and he can be a bit of a goofball when they’re alone.
i…… love shiro being a bit of a rebel / idk work hmm… you know …. at the garrison sometimes - and you’d never expect it from the Golden Boy and he gets away with everything and never gets the wrap bc he’s Shiro and keith is the only one who knows the truth
going out after curfew on the hoverbike is my aesthetic i swear
stargazing on the roof, shiro telling keith all about the constellations and their stories, keith listening attentively and wanting to hear about everything shiro enjoys and wants to talk about
keith never walking into shiro’s room by the door no matter what floor he always comes through the window and leaves by the window too. i dont know why listen im just literally can’t stop thinking about it keith climbing through windows is so good and keith + parkour too and this will forever be in my heart
shiro coming back from somewhere and keith is just there reading and doesn’t even look up and shiro is like “???” bc he definitely locked the door and keith has come through the window lmao bc he prefers being in this space than his own room it’s comfortable
not needing to speak sometimes, no forcing conversations. keith isn’t one for smalltalk nor particularly enjoys it - they can communicate in their own way they have the Radar to tap into each other. it’s perfectly fluid and natural for them. they can just be sat together doing their own thing but completely together too.
working out together and sparring. pushing each other and motivating each other but also being able to tell when the other has hit their limit
i wrote this the other day but shiro being the secret heathen not keith LMAO. shiro knows all the tricks to getting ready quick with minimal effort and his routine is even shorter than keith’s.
keith resting his head on shiro’s shoulder and in the crook of his neck, just being close
subtle acts of affection :’)))) small nudges and being in each other’s space and you can see they’re really gravitated towards each other and want to stay close when they can
Might I inquire to know what tfc is, exactly? What does it stand for? I presume it's a book series, is it not? It seems decent, so I figured I'd ask.
HELLO DO YOU HAVE A MINUTE TO TALK ABOUT TFC. I PROMISE THIS BOOK WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE. (aka please sell your soul and join me in hell)
tfc is short for the foxhole court, which is both, an alternative name for the all for the game series by nora sakavic and the title of the first book.
it centers around neil, the son, the puppy (i love neil very much) and his freshmen year with the palmetto state university’s foxes. the foxes are a team that is unusual in two aspects:
A) they play a sport called exy, something that the author herself came up with and that my lazy ass likes to explain as “lacrosse. just…better.” all you need to know (for now) is that it can be pretty violent, is co-ed and neil loves it very much.
B) their coach, david wymack (please adopt me), chooses only players for his line-up who come from “questionable” backgrounds. (i.e. abuse, drugs, complicated family drama etc.). therefore they are a fractured mess with no real image of team spirit. (hence great chance for C H A R A C T E R D E V E L O P M E N T )
you would think this is enough to make up a pretty decent bookseries with angsty athletes and their everyday drama but BEHOLD. because besides characters that take this sport seriously in levels ranging from me and any sport to oliver wood and quidditch the foxhole court is served with a side of mafia, death, and pain. i don’t want to take away too much hence my lack of explanation but let’s just say when i started the series i expected none of this darkness, i died about 29292 deaths and i loved every second of it.
what really makes this for me (besides its intriguing plot ofc) are all of the characters. and when i say all of them i mean literally all of them. usually you’ll find series with secondary characters that are just there to fill plotholes, never once important again. you don’t waste a second thought on them usually. then there’s this gem, where all of them have a layer to their personality that gets you interested in them, not a single one seems to be unnecessary and i love. every. part. of it. since talking about all of those lovely minors would take weeks probably i’ll settle on the mains right now, my children, my family, the foxes.
(i’ll try to keep this as spoilerfree as possible, but still, there could be some i didn’t recognize as such. there definitely are.)
they can be devided into two groups:
1) ANDREW’S LOT
u kno those moments while reading where the character is being a dick throughout all of ut but you still think “yup, i’ll get attached to you”
‘sociopath’ , on drugs that cheat on all of his emotions
can be pretty scary
has knives -> ready to cut a bitch at any time of day and will do so
also very protective and the mom friend
angry about all the things. constantly.
he may seem like he doesn’t care. it’s because he doesn’t. (this is what canon says but my heart says that SOMEWHERE,,,,DEEP DOWN,,,,,)
how did i grow so fond of this grumpy midget (the twins are tiny. like. tiny.)
the gay cousin
no srsly, he’s the twins cousin and he’s gay
if this was a supernatural thing nicky would be the friend of the main character without special powers but a hell lotta sarcasm
has a boyfriend in germany
can talk for hours where is the off-button
you know how i talked about oliver wood and quidditch?
kevin is the oliver wood of exy
“coach you can’t cancEL EXY” “kevin there are people dying”
insensitivity, arrogance and determination all list kevin in their definitions but he can pull it off and still remain your child
just watch him take over your heart bc he will
2) THE UPPERCLASSMEN
used to be a stripper
is now captain of the foxes
also my mom
idk man when i read it dan was just so #relatable to me???
(i keep forgetting but he is a) rich kid from nyc
a good bro
literally so unproblematic???
absolutely in love with dan
the parents those two
please step on my face
has money and you won’t forget it
couldve enherited her parents business but chose exy
did i mention STEP ON MY FACE
except allison sometimes
matts and neils roomie
weird sleeping habits
the christian sweetheart
can and will fight. politely tho.
“who doesn’t like renee???!!!!!” (-nicky)
she literally baked cookies for the team
i love all of those children so so so much. so. much.
as well as this series. i just finished it today so have some general (bait) information
(this is just all my thoughts in no particular order)
- tackles certain subjects that are usually romanticised/ written in an unsatisfactory matter really well (such as rape, selfharm, abuse etc) ((putting a trigger-warning here though, it can be really dark, like i mentioned!!))
- some pretty decent queer representation
- neil was confirmed demisexual so my ace heart sings
- you can literally not. stop. reading.
- everyone speaks like 5 languages??? they keep switching??????(fairly often they soeak german and it was pretty fun for me to translate it in my head and see what it would sound like)
- i feel like a not small amount of twenty one pilots songs would fit this series pretty well but im not into top enough to confirm 100%
- the author has a tumblr with loads of usefull background info (since she’s focusing on a new series this year there probably won’t be many additions but tbh there is so much already there isn’t even anything to complain about???)
- you know how ever series has that one/handful of character(s) that make you want to scream out because theY HAD ENOUGH AND THEY DONT DESERVE THIS SHIT JUST GIVE THEM A BREAK? its all of them in this book. i can tell you who wont get a break and its YOU
- and last but not least the first book is FREE on amazon and smashwords! the other two (the raven king, the king’s men) are a dollar each!! join hell now for 2 $ !!!!
im publishing this because all of my followers should need to get following message out of this incoherent pile of thoughts:
Jinjin: I think we shot it in a fun way so it was good. I’m not sure if it came out well but we worked hard so I feel good about it. Eunwoo: They said we were going to do a bnt Pictorial so I searched it up and look at a lot. I don’t know if we did well too but we shot it well it was good and really fun.
Q. Please introduce Astro
Jinjin: ‘Astro’ in Spanish means star and space. A name representing that we want to become the star in people’s hearts. We’ve finished our first album’s promotions but to promote our album “Spring Up”’s energetic, spring-like, strength-giving appearance we’re working hard doing activities.
Q. You’re a new group that debuted 2 months ago but it seems you’re living busy daily lives
A. Moonbin: Yesterday we finished off our activities’ last fansigning. We’re a new group so it’s important to announce ourselves. I think it’s better the busier you are. It was hard but on stage and at activities we’re learning a lot together and getting even closer.
Q. Fansignings, hi touches, it seems you’re busy everyday
A. Moonbin: Fans came to lots of fansignings. Yesterday was the last signing so even if they couldn’t come before there were lots who came because it was the last. Next promotions we’ll see fans more and talk together more. And at our showcase lots came out so it was enjoyable for us too.
Q. We’re curious about every singer’s motive for dreaming of becoming a singer
A. Rocky: I was dancing since I was 5 and so naturally started to dream of becoming a singer. I’ve been watching what singers are doing and following along until now.
Jinjin: When I was in elementary school Rain sunbaenim was on TV and was really cool. I saw him on tv and thought wow he’s a cool person and so when he was on TV I wanted to show a good appearance to my mum and so started dreaming of becoming a singer.
