is this called headcanon

2

My entire takeaway from Ghostbusters 101 #3 is that Holtzmann has roommates, she’s a bad roommate, she sleeps like Sid from Toy Story, and she sleeps IN her jumpsuit and goggles, but takes off her necklace. Look at this beautiful garbage child. 👌✨

I’m willing to bet Patsy “kick-ass nurse and midwife, calm under extreme pressure” Mount is a terrible cook but very determined.

Like as soon as they get their own place, Delia comes home regularly to small house fires as Patsy “attempts” to bake - Delia never knows exactly what, it’s always just a charred black mess by the time it comes out the oven. She never asks.

But then one day after a really long shift and three deliveries she comes home and there’s no fire, no burning, just a delicious smell wafting from the kitchen. Patsy is standing there proudly, covered in flour with a huge smile on her face and a plate of Welsh cakes on a red gingham table cloth.

It is a strong MSR headcanon for me that Mulder & Scully did all these couple-y things before they even slept together for the first time, without ever acknowledging that they’d be significant relationships steps for any romantic couple (because both of them become so paranoid at a certain point, they can rationalize all these “relationship” steps as part and parcel of their v. intense platonic partnership). These things include (but are not limited to):

  1. Swapping apartment keys.
  2. Mulder listing Scully as next of kin.
  3. Mulder giving Scully power of attorney in his will.
  4. A joint bank account.
  5. Sharing all computer passwords.
  6. A change of clothes and toothbrushes at each other’s place.
  7. Keeping each other’s kitchens stocked with the other’s favourite foods (Mulder was never one to keep tea before Scully, and Scully has sunflower seeds in her pantry at all times).
  8. Reading each other’s favourite books.
  9. Listening to each other’s favourite music.
  10. Being each other’s last phone call before bed, every damn night.
some of my chuck & jimmy childhood headcanons that no one asked for

(okay @kiraalexander mentioned a passing interest in them and i thought this might be too dorky for my main haller/egina blog)

  • Chuck is 9 years older than Jimmy.
  • When Jimmy was first born Chuck was very agitated, used to being the doted-on only child, but within weeks he adored him, wanted to hold him all the time and fiercely protect him against the world.
  • He was forced to babysit Jimmy for free until he went to college. Jimmy broke and bit things a lot.
  • As soon as Jimmy was 6 or 7, and he stopped blindly obeying him, Chuck found him irritating again and lost substantial interest in their relationship.
  • They were raised Catholic, and at 15 Jimmy deliberately picked someone else to be his confirmation sponsor (which is almost always your older sibling if you have one) because he was pissed at Chuck about something and knew being boxed out of such tradition and ceremony would make Chuck furious.
  • Chuck walked him to elementary school every day and Jimmy would constantly wriggle out of his grip, run off, and try to escape.
  • Jimmy constantly found excuses to hang out in Chuck’s room growing up and when he was home from college - thunderstorm, bad dream, buy me beer - which Chuck always saw through but allowed. He liked to be needed.
  • Jimmy wanted to go to Georgetown (“just like Chuck!”) as a kid, and kept the sweatshirt Chuck gave him for Christmas a long, long time after that dream died.
  • Chuck is the one who taught Jimmy how to read.
  • When Chuck graduated high school Jimmy, aged 9, went ballistic and jumped around and screamed and generally made a scene in the audience. Their mother thought it was adorable. Chuck did not.
  • Chuck started having panic attacks when he was 12. Jimmy was too young to understand what was happening but he’d bring Chuck random pieces of fruit or make him drawings in an attempt to stop them.
  • Jimmy dated a lot of people in high school. Chuck was far more focused on his studies. Whenever Jimmy tried to talk about sex with him he got judgey and freaked out and hung up on him.
  • The day of their father’s funeral was the day Chuck decided Jimmy was not to be trusted.

I’m totally gonna do a post-s2 verse in which Mon-El is sent to the future where he meets and soon joins the League of Super-Heroes because he wants to fully embrace being a hero and like maybe the timeline there is much different and a month in his original timeline is about one year over in the Earth-Prime (30th century) timeline. i.e, Kara could be without him for three months but meanwhile for him it’ll be three years without her and he spends all that time training and being Superboy. And then Brainiac 5 (the Legion’s resident genius) eventually develops an anti-lead serum for him so that he can finally return to his original timeline. Also, he gets possession of a Legion Flight Ring (like Supes) so he can now fly! 

I’ve got a lot to flesh out and research but this verse will hold me over until season three.

imagine if the baker street boys epilogue was narrated by mrs hudson
  • Mrs Hudson: I know you two; and if you come back and live in MY house, I know what you could become. Because I know who you really are. A junkie who solves crimes to get high and the doctor who never came home from the war. Well, you listen to me: who you really are, it MATTERS, I've been trying to tell you all these years. There are two men sitting arguing in a scruffy flat, like they’ve always been there and they always will. The best and wisest men I have ever known. My Baker Street boys. Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson.
  • Mrs Hudson:
  • Mrs Hudson: Well then? Get on with it, I'll officiate the wedding
Wait wait wait, did you just make a joke?

•I am in love with the idea of Keith making jokes so only hunk can really hear
•and they are GOOD
•Hunk has laughed so hard hes cryed over some of them
•one time Keith’s joke got him so good that he skipped the laughter and went straight to crying
•but Keith is sneaky
•and no one EVER hears him exept Hunk
•Hunk is loosing it™
•cause
•I SWEAR GUYS KEITH IS FUNNY HE MAKES JOKES I SWEAR LANCE YOU BELIEVE ME RIGHT
•LANCE!
•LANCE?
•im sorry buddy but ??? Keith has literally never???
•Hunk looking at Keith
•hes so smug
•Hunk making the “im watching you” gesture
• Keith taking it as a CHALLENGE
•a challenge to get sneakeyer and funnier
•when they are heading to their lion
•right before they enter a room with everyone else
•as hunk is taking a sip of space juice so he does a spit take all over lance and pidge
•at the table when Keith walks behind hunks chair
•Keith is brutal with his jokes tbh
•they are always relevant to something going on
•"Are we sure Galra Keith isn’t evil??? I think he’s tring to make me laugh to death! Is that possible?“
•Keith is so happy to have a thing™ with Hunk
•he feels so proud of himself whenever Hunk laughs
•he did that he made him happy
•Keith would do anything to make that laugh and that smile stick around
•and he finds that making jokes like this is a great stress relief for both of them so thats a plus
•keith dosnt know when he started to automatically seak out Hunk when entering a room
•Hunk doesnt know when he started keeping a constant eye out for Keith
•really tho if you see one of them you probably see the other too and they are probably most definitely both trying to stifle a laughing fit

Ok so y’know how Robbie always calls the kids by the wrong names to be mean/get on their nerves?

Well, one day Trixie decides to throw that back in Robbie’s face. After Robbie goes “Hey you! Loud Girl– Tricky!” she responds “What’s up, Reuben?”

And Robbie can’t even handle it, he’s so appalled and offended, this is possibly one of the worst things that’s ever happened to him

I feel like if the rogues ever got in a fight with each other but didn’t want to have shoot outs or extreme violence they’d passive aggressively call the police on each other like

‘GCPD, what’s your emergency?’

‘Hello? Yes, I’d like to inform you that Edward Nigma is going to rob the Gotham City Bank at 8 pm tomorrow.’

'Alright, and what’s your name?’

'This is Jonathan Crane.’

’…sir, is this a prank call?’

long term relaysh otayuri hcs

(aka I need a break from writing the HaC sequel.)

  • yuri never, ever wears his own sweatshirts. otabek will do laundry and find that all of his pullovers are stretched out from yuri pulling them over his wrists and fraying the sleeves with his teeth. 
  • (he doesn’t mind)
  • if viktor and yuuri are like that couple who are a cross between your still-in-love parents and first-year newlyweds, otabek and yuri are like that the couple you might not even realize are together until you notice that they’re always within two feet of each other - that when anyone calls one of their names, they look over in sync, the exact same expression on their faces. they move in constant unconscious counterpoint. once you see it, you can’t unsee it
  • otabek insists–endlessly, strenuously–that he’s not a fan of pda. yuri has no strong feeling on the matter but it does give him a feeling of superiority of yuuri and viktor. “we’re more restrained,” he says to mila. “yura,” mila says, "staring at someone like they’re the last glass of water in a desert counts as pda. it fucking counts, yura.”
  • otabek needs alone days. and when they make a habit of it, yuri finds that he does, too. 
  • yuri’s emotions are like air: they expand to fill any given space. if you’re in the room with him for more than ten seconds, you know what yuri plisetsky is thinking. like, you really, really know. in time, with otabek, he learns to focus that intensity. he becomes amazed at how a simple “i love you” at the perfect moment can stop beka in his tracks. he wields the knowledge like a weapon.
Adorable ZoSan Date
  • Sanji: Don't ever take me on a date to the aquarium. I'll sit and watch the fish the whole time and I won't say a word to you unless I need food or to take a piss or something.
  • Zoro, blushing: Well, yeah. That's the whole point. I get to sit back and watch you smile and have fun, like when you cook.
  • Sanji, speechless: *starts crying and glomps Zoro as they fall to the floor*

meanwhile:

the wheel of self-indulgence continues to spin merrily along…
Off The Rails -the epic saga of Bokuto, Akaashi, Oikawa and Iwaizumi all falling in terrible weird love with each other- continues!

read from the start \\ < previous comic

So I saw this perfectly delightful post, and my immediate response was “oh yes, of course Tali writes fanfic! She just doesn’t tell anyone because she’s afraid they’d never let her live it down.” (And as regards Garrus she’s probably right.)

Because obviously what Tali writes is schmoopy self-indulgent Shallicus, mostly for her own pleasure/comfort, and the prototypical Tali fic is 90% romantic fluff and 10% incredibly accurate and detailed descriptions of hacking. Shalei and Bellicus might spend most of the fic having a long romantic walk around the Presidium, but with amazing regularity they discover that they need to hack a terminal during said walk.

Tali is also that person who writes impassioned essays about how misrepresentation of quarian culture by the non-quarian parts of the fandom (which is most of it) is offensive, and that they either ought not write anything set on the Migrant Fleet for the fandom or at least ought to do a modicum of research. (She’s not wrong.) She does this all under the pseudonym Chatika63, because of course she does.

But my next thought was… you know who else I could see writing fanfic?

Legion.

We know Legion plays MMORPGs. And we know that they have an interest in attempting to understand how organics think (in part, in the hopes of convincing organics not to attempt to destroy them on sight). And what better way to get inside of someone’s head than to… well… get inside their head? Write from the perspective of an organic? Given how awful they were at the Fleet and Flotilla visual novel (”Hopeless”), they probably have some awareness that this understanding is not a strong point, and trying to work it out via fanfic is certainly less risk-prone than trying to work it out via interaction 

At first, Legion just downloads the 100 most popular fanfics for Galaxy of Fantasy and Fleet and Flotilla and analyzes them, breaking them down in terms of both general plot structure, scene structure, and even all the way down to sentence structure. Then they use that analysis to generate new fics, dump them on Space AO3 under a variety of pseudonyms (the sheer volume of Legion’s output would make posting under a single name look awfully suspicious–even the notably prolific salarian writers don’t write that fast), and wait.

(Space AO3 is a fascinating place. Some of the asari-written WIPs have been going on for centuries now, Support has to spend something like half its time mediating all the times when krogans write thinly-veiled bloodthirsty revenge-fic against anyone who posts critically about their stories, and the hanar fandom gift culture is… unique, to say the least. But that is another post for another time.)

Anyway. Those first attempts of Legion’s basically read like Mad Libs written by someone unclear on the concept, which, in effect, they are. But the thing about Legion is that even though they don’t have a great grasp of how shipping and etc. work (see above re: the Fleet and Flotilla visual novel), they are in fact not a mindless computer process but a highly intelligent AI. They learn.

In this case, they learn by analyzing feedback, hit counts, and upvotes. They break the stories down again, analyze what they discovered worked and what didn’t, and adjust, and post again.

Story quality actually takes a dip for a bit–it turns out that chasing popularity doesn’t necessarily translate to quality–but then begins to rise, slowly at first and then steadily. They learn what works and what doesn’t, what rings true to readers and what feels stilted or artificial. They store witty quips and bits of banter and felicitous turns of phrase between crewmates in long-term memory to slot into stories later. When they’re performing a task that doesn’t require the attention of all 1,183 programs, they let some of the idle processes spin out projections for how this or that scenario might be received, based on the current databank of information.

(In short, like all authors, they begin to eavesdrop, and to daydream, and to treat everything as grist for the mill.)

They rapidly become well-known, under several different pseudonyms (having ditched the early pseuds with their hideously awkward mix-and-match prose). Under the pseudonym VarrenRider13, they’re known for an epic romance set in the world of Galaxy of Fantasy, which is well-known for its sensitive portrayal of asari romance and its detailed worldbuilding. Under the pseudonym MorningWanderer, they’re known for a number of Shallicus fics for the Fleet and Flotilla fandom, including the fandom-famous “And Stars Danced” series and the underappreciated standalone “Breaking Bread.”

tl;dr: The One Where Tali’s Favorite Fleet and Flotilla Fic Writer Is Actually Legion.

(She never has a chance to find out before Legion’s death.)

So one of the things I imagine happening after Danny got his ghost powers is that he’s much more light on his feet, and so his family hardly ever hears him when he comes up or down the stairs, and often times scares his mom or dad or Jazz when they don’t realize he’s there until he talks because he’s behind them, and they sometimes tell him he’s like a ghost in the house and its funny because of how true it is even tho they don’t know it, and yea

at a photoshoot
  • jungkook: *notices hobi is standing between him and jimin*
  • jungkook: *shoves hobi out of the way*
  • jungkook: move. i wanna stand next to jimin.
  • hobi: yah! what are you? a baby?
  • jungkook: *latches onto jimin's arm while jimin pats his head*
  • jungkook: i'm jimin-hyung's baby.
Tony x Clay x Jeff

How did their relationship start?

Tony totally picked up on the fact that Jeff was crushing on Clay and told Clay about it. Clay was obviously in denial about it. One night, at a party that Jeff forced him to go to and a few drinks in, he asked Jeff about it, who was oddly very blunt and was just like “Yeah, okay, so I’m bisexual. That’s not a problem, right?” and cue Clay’s internal crisis on whether or not he was also bi. He went to Tony then to vent about everything and BAM. Tony ends up kissing Clay. Clay is confused as fuck, has two boys that like him, and is pretty sure he didn’t have a problem with Tony kissing him. He avoids his problems, ofc, until Tony and Jeff both show up at his house and basically corner him. 

“Okay! So, maybe I like guys, but, I… You can’t expect me to choose between you!”

“Maybe you don’t have to choose,” Jeff suggests.

So… he doesn’t. POLYAMORY.

Headcanons:

1. Tony lets Jeff and Clay switch off for passenger side in his car when they go out.

2. Jeff and Tony both try to get Clay to be more adventurous because they’re alike in that aspect.

3. Tony teaches Jeff more about how to work on cars. Everyone benefits when Jeff’s shirt gets all greasy and he has to take it off.

4. Both Tony and Clay start tutoring Jeff. Not much actual tutoring gets done, so Clay usually ends up kicking Tony out so they can focus and not have an extra person in the room to distract them (mostly with kisses).

5. Tony fucking loves Jeff’s ear piercings.
