totally platonic ways to show ur platonic bro friend u care platonically - a guide by James Buchanan Barnes.
• know his precise location and swan in to rescue his reckless ass when he gets into a fight - again - as if you got some sort of sixth sense to knowing he’s in danger
• abandon your date on your last night in town for a while to traipse around a convention looking for him
• after being strapped to a table and tortured and experimented on, be sure the first thing you do is ask him if it hurt when he became all beefy
• when he asks you if you’ll follow the person everyone else see’s him as into danger, let him know that you’re following the him he was and still is underneath, and you’d follow him anywhere
• follow him home from his mother’s funeral to make sure he’s doing okay, then tell him that you know he can get by on his own, but he doesn’t have to, because you’re with him til the end of the line
• remember him before you remember yourself after he says your name for the first time in 70 years, and then refuse to let go of the certainty that you knew him, even though that belief is going to get you hurt
• when all you know what to do is to obey orders and complete a mission, hear 9 words that sound like a wedding vow, and choose instead of killing him like you were ordered, to save him and make sure he’s alive
• after you’ve pretended like you only know him from reading about him in a museum, the moment danger presents itself, instinctively protect him from said danger
• when he brings up a double date that you went on and tries to mention the girls, don’t even remember the girls name, but do remember everything he did that day
• whilst you’re lying on the floor, beaten and bruised and bloody and once again, sans arm, summon whatever energy you have left to detract attention from him to stop him getting hurt
Okay but just imagine Evan having the biggest crush on Connor and writing out ‘Evan Murphy’ everywhere, all over his books, likewise, Connor adores Evan and writes 'Connor Hansen’ on his jeans and wherever else he can and of course Jared and Zoe tease the heck out of both of them about it
totally platonic ways to show ur platonic bro friend u care platonically - a guide by Steven G. Rogers
1. defy government orders and embark on a one man mission to walk from one country to another to save said platonic bro friend
2. listen to slightly more sensible friend when they suggest perhaps flying rather than walking, then jump out of plane directly into enemy territory to get to the bro friend
3. single handedly defeat a bunch of nazi’s using no more than determination and a tin foil shield to find the bro friend
4. literally jump over fiery pits of near certain death to escape back to relative safety with bro friend
5. refuse to fight for probably the first time in your entire life and drop ur defences rather than hurt ur bro friend any more than he’s already been hurt
6. have a phrase that sounds remarkably like a marriage vow - but obviously in a platonic way bc bro friend- that holds so much significance - platonically - that it resonates even through 70 years of brainwashing and torture and he remembers it before he remembers his own name
7. Become an internationally wanted fugitive but shrug it off like nothing because bro friend is still alive
8. Pull a helicopter out of the sky. With your own two hands. Nothing but ur own strength and determination.
9. Give up being what the world knows you as and expects from you, instead choosing him and choosing yourself. But like. As bro’s.
i know this is hella old news now but just imagine being dirk strider and growing up alone in a post apocalyptic world with a small handful of friends to talk to but who youve never met
and over the years you sort of feel like you screw everything up. you feel guilty because you cant return the feelings of a friend who is in love with you. because you fall in love with a different friend, then push him away. then alienate your other remaining friend in the process. you’re overcomplicated and intense and overbearing and manipulative and you know all your flaws but youre confused and lonely and 16 and you hate yourself so much and
youve modelled yourself your whole life on an ancestor. your bro, who was brave, and talented, and important, and heroic. and you can meet him. a version of him thats your age. and itll be a blank slate and youre so excited to meet your idol.
and you meet him
and one of the first things he says to you is
and he tells you all about your abusive alternate self who you cant seem to detach from your identity and
all you can think is that everything you touch you destroy
((Can you please draw my oc? Thanks!)) ((Btw love that art!))
(( Okay. I’m sorry if this is rude but no dice homie. If you want me to draw your OC! Then please commission me when I open my commissions very soon! Please and thank you. I only draw things for people whom I’m friends/mutuals with, or cause I really like something.
Please understand that I’m up to my neck with projects and don’t have the time, energy, or interest to draw someone’s OC out of the blue.
I appreciate that you like my art, really I do! Sorry if this came across harsh, but I’d like to nip this in the butt before other people flood my inbox with OC requests. ))
I’m going to kind of combine prompts for this one, and that may be cheating a bit, but I like this enough to submit it for both. First and foremost, this is a Harry Potter AU (Day 13), and I have combined it a bit with Day 17, Prom Night. Of course, the closest thing to a “prom” in the Harry Potter universe would be the Yule Ball! So this will be a two-shot, with part one being posted today, and part two posted on the 17th. I hope you enjoy!
This year, the Triwizard Tournament is being held at Beauxbatons Academy of Magic, where Marinette Dupain-Cheng has been selected as Champion. She is not afraid of most of the challenges that await her. Except one. Fantastic beasts? No problem. Tests of wit? She’s got them in the bag. Asking her crush to the Yule Ball? That’s a different story entirely…
Dearest anon, my bias (mod spookzz) is not even Eren (it’s Levi–mod Elle loves the shit outta Eren) but I have so many feels about how people characterize him so forgive me if this seems a little rant-y! Hope you still enjoy!
Eren is not as angry as people think he is. Okay, yes he is angry but that is not all his personality is composed of. Contrary to common thought, Eren is just extremely passionate and that translates to all of his emotions.
Sometimes even his excitement can come off as anger just because of the pure passion this boy radiates.
He’s also not stupid. While Eren isn’t conventionally and naturally smart like Armin, he is an extremely hard worker. Eren works for whatever he wants and he typically gets it. He may have to try a little more than someone like Armin but he is incredibly intelligent despite the hurdles he may have to jump over.
Speaking of Armin, lets talk about how much Eren loves Armin, shall we?
I don’t care what anyone says or how much hate I might get but it is clearly evident that the most important person in the entire world to Eren is Armin. Yes he loves and cares for Mikasa as well, but the intensity is entirely different and I truly believe Eren would move Heaven and Hell to make sure a single hair was not harmed on Armin’s body. (Totally bros, by the way, there’s no romantic subtext there that I’m hinting at. Eren just really, really cares about his best friend.)
On the romantic vein, Eren isn’t going to be too interested in pursuing any kind of relationship with anyone until he feels like he’s met his personal goal. He sucks at multitasking when he’s young. He might look and he can certainly recognize when someone is attractive, but committing and being serious? Not gonna happen.
…Until Eren matures (AKA: grows up and is not a teenager anymore inhibited by naive goals and ambitions) and realizes that he can have focus and drive in multiple areas of his life, including a significant other.
Overall I just really want to dispel the myths that Eren’s two defining (and only) qualities are that he is angry and not-the-brightest-bulb-in-the-box. He is devoted and loyal and caring and intelligent and protect Eren 2k17, alright? Thanks.
Zuko was very involved in the rebuilding of the Southern Water Tribe.
Zuko apologized to Gran Gran about what he did during the first two ATLA episodes…destroying the village, and dragging her out of the crowd etc…he was kind of embarrassed but pleasantly surprised when Gran Gran accepted his apology.
After the war, Zuko taught the Fire Nation how not to rely on hate and anger for their firebending drive, and basically created a golden age for the Fire Nation founded on peace.
This is also why lightningbending is so prevalent in LOK (will also post about that later).
Zuko learned to lightningbend.
As he aged, Zuko incorporated more waterbending forms into his bending style. Iroh was impressed.
Zuko, and Aang had at least one flying bison v dragon race.
When Izumi was around 10, she asked her father if she could visit Ozai in prison. Zuko refused–and Izumi visited Ozai anyway.
Zuko was furious, but Mai and Iroh insisted that it wasn’t too bad of an idea for Izumi to visit her grandfather.
Izumi’s line about “nonsense wars” was a direct result of Izumi’s interactions with Ozai.
Both izumi, Iroh II, asked abou Zuko’s scar when they were young. When it was Iroh II’s turn…they were at a gathering and Izumi was incredibly embarrassed about the whole thing, but Zuko laughed it off and told his grandson–and anyone who cared to listen–the story of his scar.
Assuming Iroh II was born shortly after Iroh I’s death, and assuming that Izumi is anywhere from 50-60, Iroh could have died when Izumi was between the age of 10 and 20. So profound was his effect on her that she named her son after him.
Katara and Tenzin showed Korra’s family the Southern Air Temple when Korra was a young girl. Taking a stroll with Tenzin, she overheares Korra say Aang’s name. Looking in her direction, she sees Senna kneel down to ask her how she knew Aang’s name. Katara smiles.

Korra Era Headcanons
After Jinorra’s ceremony, Zuko approached Jinorra and mentioned how much she resembles Aang, and commented that her grandfather would be proud.
By now, the Fire Nation throne room looks a lot like it did before Sozin began the war, but with two dragons (Ran, and Shaw) behind the throne instead of just one.
Iroh II will name his son Zuko after his grandfather, finally enabling Iroh and Zuko’s relationship to go full circle with Zuko going from being Iroh’s surrogate son to his biological son.
On the next coming of Sozin’s Comet, there will be huge ceremony in the Fire Nation celebrating the 100th anniversary of the end of the 199 Years War.
There will be a Ozai v Aang reenactment…Meelo will naturally volunteer to be Ozai despite being unable to firebend.
Bumi and Iroh II are total bros the same way Sokka and Zuko were.
Iroh sometimes gets sick of Bumi’s shit though.
Korra visited Kuvira in prison on multiple occasions.
I doubt anyone besides Kataang’s kids know that Zhao’s in the Fog of Lost Souls…but, it would be interesting if Zuko found out. The Ocean Spirit killed Zhao because he’s the one that killed the Moon–but imagine Zuko thinking about how different things could have been.
Imagine, instead of seeing Zhao in the Fog…we saw Book 1 Zuko. Imagine all the pain, and anguish that would haunt him in the Fog. On top of that, imagine Book 1 Zuko in the Fog while knowing how the prime timeline plays out.
“I must capture the Avatar to restore my honor…father, I am your loyal son…”
Heartbreaking, really, when you know how things actually end.
Korra visited Katara after the LOK finale and thanked her for everything.
Red Lotus Headcanons
During his travels, Aang met a young man with a strong interest in Air Nomad traditions. Impressed, Aang fed the man’s thirst for knowledge and shared with him various Air Nomad teachings, even encouraging him to join the White Lotus. Eventuallyu, Zhaeer learned about Guru Laghima, and had regular debates with Aang about world philosophies.
Even though the two disagreed with each other, they both enjoyed their philosophical debates. After Aang’s death, Zaheer met Xai Bau…and you all know how the story goes from there.
Sokka rescued Korra, but died when he failed to swing his boomerang at P’Li in time.
Boomerang did not come back that day.
Zuko-Iroh Reunion Headcanons
Zuko takes his grandchildren to meet with Iroh (I keep thinking he’d go alone for the first time, but he can’t just go without Iroh. And Honora Jr. would probably come too since we know she exists).
The Iroh-Zuko reunion is more heartwarming than the Zuko-Iroh reunion in ATLA.
Iroh, knowing Zuko, will constantly expect Zuko to ask him to return to the mortal world with him, but is surprised when Zuko doesn’t ask him anything of the sort. If he does implore why Zuko didn’t ask that, Zuko will tell Iroh that he realizes what the consequences and implications of Iroh’s choice were, making Iroh smile before giving his nephew one last hug.
Zuko tells his grandkids Uncle’s favorite tea joke on their way to see him, and neither of them find it funny for whatever reason–Iroh II especially.
Iroh makes Zuko ginseng tea, Zuko’s favorite.
Sex Related Headcanons
I really dislike Zutara, and think it’s illogical, but I’m on board with the idea of old, widowed Zuko and Katara hooking up if only because I want Maikos kids and Kataangs kids to constantly walk in on them for no reason but to create awkward moments. Also, I’ve pretty much headcanoned older kinky Katara thanks to some comic strips (said comics are actually about Korra), and besides the pairing here would at least make sense and it’s kind of cute. Alas, it would probably never happen–but, meh.
Tenzin: Walks in on Zuko, and Katara WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE!?
Katara: Uhh…Zuko was showing me his honor/dragon?
Izumi: Hey where’d our parents go? All I see are two leath–OH FOR RAAVA’S SAKE!
I always joke about how reports of erectile dysfunction disorder decrease dramatically among the Water Tribe population during the full moon, but let’s head canon it!
Kyoshi gives excellent sex advice…or, rather, did until Korra’s connection with her past lives was disconnected.
when dex and nursey are seniors and dex is captain and nursey has an a, they sort of… forget to tell the freshmen that they’re dating. the first couple weeks are kind of weird for the new babies, bc jase is pretty sure he saw nursey slap dex’s ass in a totally-not-bros way, but hoots keeps walking into the haus and finding them screaming at each other, but also arty definitely saw dex kiss nursey on the cheek in the locker room. they’re confused. then they meet ransom and holster, and that just fucks them up even worse. is this a samwell thing? is it a captain thing? maybe this is just what happens in college hockey???? no one ever said anything about it in juniors, though… maybe it’s just like a buddies thing ???? ….. anyway one day they all walk into the haus and dex and nursey are making out on the couch and one of them is just like “ok that is SO not buddies” and dex is like “i would hope not, he’s my fiancé” and their minds are too busy exploding for them to hear nursey’s “you haven’t even asked me yet, dummy”
"Cas, dude, bro. Who I love in a totally platonic way. My bestest bro bud in the most heterosexual way. I missed you. Please hold my gun. Finger my weapon. There's nothing metaphorical at all in what I say." *Sam throws up in the background.*
"we're getting irrationally angry at this Ikea stuff here let me give u kisses to calm u down" basicallyido407? Pls
I think this is the fasted ive done a request holy shit
Marcel knew this would be a bad idea, but here they were anyway, in their new house with a stack of Ikea boxes.
Usually Scotty+Marcel+furniture does not equal good things. Marcel still gets nightmares about that lamp in Scott’s old house…
“What is this?” Marcel stared at the table they were trying to assemble. One of the legs was horribly tilted, one leg was on upside down, and somehow the fourth leg was gone.
“I did it right!”
“No, that’s not right!”
“Yes it is!”
“How?! How is this right Scott?”
“Look at it!”
“Explain. Explain to me how this is right. ”
“Look! That little thingy goes in there, this connects to that and…. nevermind I think I did it wrong.”
Marcel sighed and helped Scotty take everything apart so they could start over. Marcel started digging around for the instructions, he knew they were around here somewhere…
Marcel looked up to see Scotty attempting to put the table together again.
“How do you even know that’s right?”
“I don’t. That what makes this exciting.” Scotty said in a flat, monotone voice.
Marcel rolled his eyes and started reading through the instructions. He was starting to get an idea of what to do when Scott spoke up again.
“Oops. Uh, Marcel? I think I broke it.”
“I don’t know what I’m doing Marcel!”
“Alright, it’s fine. Let’s try again.” Marcel crawled over to Scott and they started to work together. After a few incredibly frustrating minutes, they finally got everything together, except the missing leg.
“How the fuck does an entire table leg just ‘go missing’?” Marcel muttered while he looked around. Despite it being called a table ‘leg’, Marcel highly doubted that it just got up and left on it’s own.
“Um, I found it. It’s under the couch.”
Marcel covered his face with his hands. “Scotty, how did the fucking table leg get under the couch?”
“How should I know?!”
“Whatever, man. Just help me get it out.”
“Huehue that’s what she said.”
“I hate you Scott.”
Marcel managed to lift the sofa so Scotty could grab the leg, and they got it attached to the rest of the mess that could technically be called a 'table’.
“MONEY!” Scott screamed.
“That looks so fuckin bad. There’s no way that’s right!”
“Bro, it’s totally right.”
Marcel flopped down onto their couch and completely gave up. They had a fucked up table now, oh well. Scott sat next to him and they stared at the mangled piece of furniture.
“Next time, we’re buying furniture that’s already assembled.”
