Random headcanon/scenario that occurred to me on the bus and idk why: Minkowski has been in a bar fight before. She thinks she was in the right (and she was) but she’s still sort of ashamed because like… punching out strangers isn’t really something she wants to be part of her reputation.
However, when Doug finds out he thinks it’s hands down the Coolest thing about her. He doesn’t let it rest until she gives him a detailed account of what happened.
And like it turns out that, in a way, she sort of.. started the bar fight? Well, she made it physical. Some dude was being creepy towards not only herself but some younger looking girls and when he mentioned something that, to Renée, indicated he might try something, she couldn’t let it go so she called him out. When he just sneered and laughed at her she stood up and socked him straight in the jaw. He and his buddies didn’t take too kindly, and even though they claimed they didn’t wanna “hit a chick” it did escalate a bit more before they all got, uh, removed from the premises.
Doug is super excited to learn this and she’s like “What happened to ‘whats wrong with handcuffs’, why are you happy that I hit people?” He’s like “Well bar fights are different than, like, murder..? It’s just badass come on.”
Also, he’s like “Bars are no longer my scene but I would give anything to go to one and see you beat some poor sucker into a pulp” and Lovelace, who has been sitting in a quiet reverence learning all these new things about Minkowski, chimes in like, “That’s an interesting kink, Eiffel,” because she can’t help herslf. Doug’s stunned into silence and Renée is like “WHY did you have to take it there?” Lovelace is like “For shits and giggles, naturally.”
Still, Doug is good on the rebound, and he’s like “Are you saying watching Minkowski pummel some creep into dust wouldn’t be appealing to you? Perhaps sexually, perhaps not.” They don’t get to find out how she responds, though, because Minkowski is like “Okay this ends now, and I severely regret ever telling either of you any and every detail I’ve shared about my past. We are getting back to Work.”
okay, so i have a theory…it’s very far fetched so i completely understand when not many people are on board with it or even see it but…i think alec and magnus might have a crush on eachother? it just occured to me idk why
Does it ever occur to you that there are people out there like “oh yeh Arctic Monkeys, I know some of their songs haha they’re cool!” And you’re just here like “guys guys remember that one particular sias tour outfit that Alex had with the mushroom hair and the blue jacket and the horrors shirt, haha good times lol”
Holy shit, idk why this literally just occurred to me.
•But Malia is like 16/17 when she’s found.
•The Hale fire happened like 7/8 years ago when Malia is found.
•Derek was 15/16 when the fire happened
•Peter was in his early twenties at that point (according to flashbacks; all except for the flashbacks to the actual fire which have Ian Bohen instead of Michael Fjordback)
Conclusion? Peter must have been around 16ish when he got Corinne pregnant (which means she was around that age too).
Idk y'all I’m feeling some kind of way about this. And other ppl probably already figured this out, so it’s old news, but holy shit. I’m probably not explaining my thought process jumps well. Sorry. But I mean…
Talia stole Peter’s memories of his kid? She tried to convince Corinne having a kid is a blessing? She takes the baby away once it’s born (to protect it, supposedly). All while Peter and Corinne were teenagers and she was in a position of figurative and literal power??
idk why it never occurred to me before but I just realised that Yujin, who grew up neglected by his dad (and his mum passed away early too iirc?), is ironically best friends with Jingrui, who grew up with love and attention from two mums and two dads.
(granted, Xie Yu is very much Not A Good Dad and didn’t give Jingrui much love but most likely at least did not neglect him)
I think that the fact that Yujin still turned out to be a good kid has a lot to do with his friendship with Jingrui but I also wonder if they got into fights over this… like Jingrui was under intense pressure to live up to the expectations of both set of parents while feeling like he didn’t belong anywhere so he might sometimes be jealous of Yujin, while Yujin probably wished that his dad expected more of him than ‘spend money’.
maybe they bond over feeling like they don’t belong to any of their families and maybe that’s why they like to go off gallivanting in the jianghu because there are probably tons of stories about orphans or family black sheeps who find their place in the world and form everlasting bonds of ~true friendship~ through their adventures in the jianghu.
I was just drifting off and thinking about Inception, as one does, and a thought occurred to me that I don’t think I’ve ever had before, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone bring up, which is blowing my mind a bit because, woah, it seems suddenly like a super-obvious mode of speculation about the film? Maybe?
So the famous moment Arthur & Eames are on the hotel level & they’re bantering just before Eames goes under, and everyone is always pointing to that scene as evidence (lol this ship) for A/E, because it’s so weird that Eames is the only one Arthur helps with his Somnacin injection?
Idk why this never occurred to me before this, but it’s not weird if you consider that Arthur is the dreamer, right, and Eames is the dreamer on his level? It makes absolutely no sense that PASIVs and Somnacin even work in a dream state, but if we go with that premise, then it makes sense that Arthur as the dreamer would have to essentially dream-create the compounds and the way the PASIV functions, right?
So maybe the reason he has to help Eames is that he has to essentially dream-create the effects of the compound on each of the sleepers, and since Eames is the dreamer on his level, Arthur has to make sure to inject the Somnacin directly himself, so that Eames gets whatever special juice allows him to create the dream on his own level?
I have no idea if that’s legit, because who the hell knows how subconscious dream-Somnacin works, but I just thought I’d throw it out there as a possible explanation for why that scene plays out the way it does!
I’m watching glass blowing videos and all I can think is “if I started doing voice acting for my little pony stuff I bet I could become really big in the pony fandom and i’d be invited to cons and stuff”
