Awhile ago I saw @portentous-offerings make a post about how Marinette’s parents would react if they found out she was ladybug in response to an anon question, and she said something about her parents sending food with her on patrols to share with Chat Noir and it made me think about how touched he would be if parents who’ve never even met him were looking out for him when he barely even has one parent on his side at home.
working on some faces and figuring out the names. i found some names for my au but i dont think it connects with the story so hhhhhh im ded meat. this is still part 1 of the characters so there will be a part 2 coming out but idk when so asdfghjhgfds. GAH no matter, i’ll be working on some ref sheets for them so dats a gud thing yay
Can we all take a moment to appreciate Blue and Lance bc. Yes they're The Ultimate Bromance™
blue and lance are ??? probably one of my favourite dynamics???
Lance totally vents to Blue about anything tbh.
First it’s because he wants to try and bond with her and then it’s because she won’t tell him to shut up if he keeps talking (there’s always a risk of that with people. Everyone gets annoyed eventually - it’s not their fault).
Eventually it just becomes routine. Blue always sends these ideas to him – feelings and thoughts and concepts, and they feel like home.
Blue does this thing in battle where she doesn’t tell Lance what to do, she just hints at things.
She’s a little cryptic sometimes and it drives Lance nuts, but it’s worth it for the surge of pride he gets after he realises what she’s hinting at.
Blue’s a hidden savage tbh.
Lance was mid-training session with everyone once and he and Blue were completing a loop. Lance was basically neck-and-neck with Keith, but Keith was just pulling ahead.
Keith was like “guess you’re too slow to catch up, huh? Where’s all that gracefulness now?” and Lance was about to bite back with an excellent comeback, but then Blue transmitted this image and it was of Keith wandering past her in the hangar, tripping over his own feet and wiping the fuck out, and Lance actually fucking lost it.
When Lance gets super tired and lonely sometimes he clambours up into Blue and settles down in the cockpit.
It’s not very comfortable which is why he now has as many blankets as he can safely fit in one of the storage closets. It feels like home though.
Blue regulates the temperature to make Lance feel extra cozy. Hidden bonus.
Lance calls Blue so many nicknames it’s actually nauseating for everyone else.
At first everyone thought Lance was hitting on Allura again when he said “of course, beautiful” over the comms after she gave an order, but it turns out he was talking to Blue.
Honey, beautiful, baby girl, gorgeous, big blue, babe, darling, and when they’re alone and he’s feeling extra homesick: mi corazón.
For ages Lance feels insecure because he thinks he and Blue have the closest bond but Blue never comes to rescue him like Red does for Keith.
He totally bottles it up and Blue knows there’s something wrong (they’re two halves of a whole) but she’s a giant lion, and whilst sentient, can only do so much.
Eventually he tells her the truth because he’s shit at keeping secrets and she does her best to send concepts and images to him to help him understand.
He eventually understands the reason she doesn’t jump into action to save him all the time is because she trusts him to find a way out of danger, to figure out a solution, to use his excellent tactical brain and figure out the best strategy for his crummy situation.
(But because she recognises simply showering him in praise won’t do as much help as action, the next time he’s truly in danger she’s launching herself out of standby and landing, crouched over his injured form. Lance doesn’t stop smiling for a week).
Hey Cassie! You have no idea how much I love your books, and not to mention how much Alec and Magnus mean to me. Reading about them when I was just beginning to figure out my sexuality meant a lot. I just finished TftSA and I really want to cry because of George. I love the fact though that Simon took on Lovelace as his surname. I remember reading awhile back that Simon would take Lightwood when he married Izzy, is this still true? Lovelace seems so fitting to him honoring George.
Simon will always keep Lovelace as part of his name — so, poor boy, he will likely be cursed with the name Simon Lewis Lovelace Lightwood forever. He has reasons to honor the Lightwoods, too, so for him this is a way to honor multiple people who he cares about. :)
hey! so what kind of music do you think the guys would listen to???
i actually had to do a lil bit of research on this because i have no idea what kind of music is popular in japan lol. i’m not going to mention (very) many specifics because it would take me like 4+ hours and a wikiwalk to look into everything but i can kinda give u the basics here (& maybe mention some american music i think they’d like)
probably just leaves the radio on a popular station on low when he’s studying or something like that??
doesn’t have a preference for anything tho u know he’s a fan of risette always
got a poster of her and everything
got a fondness for instrumentals and jazz tho. smooth and soft, something that fades in and out of the background at leisure
(may or may not be inspired by the fact that i’ve kept beneath the mask’s instrumental on repeat for the past three weeks)
secret weakness for technoswing
aftertherain has been rly popular lately and also perfume so
probably a sucker for hip hip
like a bit more american hip hop than japanese honestly but he loves hip hop artists from japan too
probably some classic dabo, some rhymster, and he might or might not have a poster of hime
if he learned any english outside of the classroom u can bet it was from like jay z or something like that
actually probably he has the best pronunciation out of most of his friends because of listening to hip hop bc it’s less formal and ms. chouno’s accent is prolly atrocious
he also shamelessly listens to theme music from video games
this hipster ass dumpster fire here will tell u he really loves shinto music…….
and honestly he really does lbr here he’s not a hipster for the sake of being a hipster
he puts it on when he’s painting so he can get in that ~~mood~~ for some good traditional artwork.
also probably a fan of jazz music like akira
almost never listens to things with lyrics as he finds it distracting
SO THIS NERD
p much all he listens to are anime themes and game music i stg
as he runs on the treadmill he’s got final fantasy music blasting in his ears and when he goes rock climbing it’s the title theme from shingeki no kyojin
he’s a fan of jjba also so that got him into some classic american rock and pop music
but yeah this boy totally picks his favorite bands based on who did the credit music for X anime or game.
and i mean??? who wouldn’t they’re p fuckin great???
JAM Project and masato shimon 👌👌👌
this keklord is one of those idol fanboys
so risette, obv
but also momoiro clover z, AKB48, morning musume
basically if she’s cute and can sing decently mishima probably has her music on his ipod
Master Dooku has the highest standards and only chooses the most elite of the elite as his apprentices. Initiate Jinn is a prodigy and looks perfect on the records and is also exceptionally gifted in sensing the Living Force. Master Dooku thought he would make the perfect Padawan. Sometimes, Master Dooku is wrong.
Or, Master Dooku has to bribe a young Padawan Qui-Gon with Obi-Wan’s company in order to get him to do anything.
[A/N] In this AU where everyone is happy, almost no one is evil and everyone lives, Master Dooku is that grumpy grandpa who looks super scary but is actually ridiculously soft once you get to know him. Qui-Gon is his third apprentice, and all three of his Padawans are ridiculously rebellious (and spoiled) in their own ways. You’ll meet the other two soon <3
OK but seriously, Bitty and Jack’s public coming out/proposal...
I have this headcanon/idea that if they come out publicly they decide, “Fuck it. If we’re doing this we’re gonna go hard.” AKA some kind of flash mob or performance proposal. So Jack and George come up with this genius idea to announce Zimbits at a game.
George just wanted to slip it in at the end of the game but JACK…
Jack talks to Bitty and they decide to do something a little bit….different
The planning took FOREVER. It was originally just going to be a way for them to come out.
Zimms decides about 10 seconds in that this would be a perfect way to propose. He gets some of the guys in on it. He has Tater and Shitty help him pick out the ring and gets Georgia to work out the logistics for everything.
Don’t even get me started on when Jack tells Bob and Alicia/Suzanne and Coach bc you know they absolutely LOST it
Bitty used to be a figure skater. Jack plays pro hockey. So what better way than to do it than on the ice at a Falconer’s home game?
It’s halftime/intermission/whatever and the announcer welcomes a surprise performance
Enter Bitty. He’s not in a fancy costume or anything, just a shirt and some pants. The crowd’s all types of confused.
“I came here for hockey and there’s some ice skater taking over the ice?! What in the hell is going on?”
He’s skating to Death of a Bachelor (AKA I’m taken. He’s taken. Leave my BF alone you fucking piranhas)
It’s a pretty standard routine until right before the chorus
Enter Jack “Cannot do anything less than 110%” Zimmermann.
He’s changed out of the main bulk of his gear. Mainly just wearing the sweater so people know it’s him.
Insert Yuri on Ice-style exhibition/pairs skate shit here. I’m thinking something Battle of the Blades-ish, maybe.
At some point, Jack THROWS Bitty into a fucking jump or spin. (Because you know that boy is ripped as hell and has the strength to do it and Bitty might never have skated pairs but he used to goof off with the girls that practiced at his rink sometimes and is DETERMINED.)
They practiced it over and over and over and almost cut it altogether. But bc Jack is HARDCORE you know he went whole fucking hog and told Bits when they were practicing, “I can do this. One more time. I’m going to get this right” about 1000 times (Bitty had a massive bruise on his butt despite the butt pads for like, 2-3 weeks because of Jack’s determined attitude/ Bitty’s need to be a little extra. Which Jack took advantage of but Bits didn’t exactly mind)
The entire routine is full of lingering touches and cheek caressing. It’s tasteful tho bc Bitty is a Southern boydammit it and his momma is watching.
Right at the end, Bitty’s doing some fancy spin (He hears the crowd hollering) and when he finishes there’s Jack.
HOLDING A FUCKING RING BOX. DOWN ON ONE KNEE. IDK how but he got his hands on a mic, probs Marty or somebody chucks it at him with a “Go get ‘im kiddo”, and asks Bits to marry him
Bitty’s losing it. The crowd is losing it.
Bitty says YES! about a hundred times and it’s beautiful.
OKAY SO I HEAR A LOT OF PEOPLE GET CONFUSED ABOUT ALL THESE WORDS AND TERMS FOR TRANSFORMERS (because we, as a fandom, like to use fancy words for our robots, we have literally reached subculture status guys we have our own dialect congratulations) AND DON’T KNOW WHAT TO USE FOR WHAT SO BECAUSE I TOO SUFFER I WILL HELP YOU
IF YOU KNOW OTHERS THAT ARE NOT LISTED HERE FEEL FREE TO ADD THEM.
Summary: In which you live in a world where one stroke of a pen against your skin is a signage of forever, and Min Yoongi just has really good timing Genre: Fluff with a touch of Angst, Soulmate!AU where when you write something on your skin with pen/marker, it will show up on your soulmate’s skin as well Word Count: 7,276 Author’s Note: I have officially joined the Soulmate!AU train of writers, and I hope this is worthy enough for that title. The original story was meant to be super short and super sweet, but of course I just kept adding more and more ideas into this and… this is the end result. Little warning, it is mainly Yoongi/Reader with a side of Jungkook/Reader so… take that as you will.
The first time images appear on your skin, you are 12 and have absolutely no idea why. Questions spring up in your mind like wildfire—alarming and so completely out of your control that you perform what could only be politely labeled as a scream before you dash to the bathroom, rubbing roughly at the skin of your arm until the flesh turns bright red. The marks, however, do not fade away.
Taking in a few sharp inhales, you collect your thoughts long enough to carefully study the marks that have been embedded into your skin—ink underneath the flesh that you carefully run your finger across. The end product looks to be a night sky along your forearm. There is a half-crescent moon and lazy stars dancing across the way; twinkling lines and hazy shapes and thick lines like they had been drawn with a sharpie.
For some odd reason, the longer you stare at the drawing, you don’t feel the panic settling back into your nerves. Rather, you feel more calm, peaceful, as if staring at the face of familiarity, like these drawings of half-crescent moons and 6 pointed stars genuinely mean something to you. Or at least, they hold enough significance that you don’t scream or continue trying to rub away the spots.
Your mother comes bounding into the room shortly after, startled by your scream until she sees the source of your apprehension and her lips curl up into a soft and understanding smile. It is right then and there, when she takes your arm, soothingly running her thumb up and down the expanse of the night sky that she spins the narrative of fate, destiny, and the universe.
She tells you that the moment people are born, they are instantly bound with another, tied together by some predetermined string, gifting you with someone you are meant to spend the rest of your life with. Someone who fit against every curve, someone who loved you in every aspect no matter what. Someone who would look at you, and you could just feel the weight of their stares like none other—set all your nerves on fire with just a single touch, leave you knowing without a doubt that that person was the one you were meant to spend your life with.
