key duplicate

ok but listen to me i know andrew is meant to have the emotional capacities of a toaster oven and i know he’s supposed to be all dead inside but don’t tell me that andrew isn’t the most sappy little shit in his own unique way bc like,,,

  • he literally dresses neil up everytime they’re having a night out?? like he actually takes the time to go out and pick something nice out for him to wear like whaaa. 
  • here take the keys to my home & oh btw i had duplicate keys made for you so you can drive my car around like whenever you want to so yea feel free also here are some custom made arm bands that match mine to like a tee 
  • he has no problems choosing his boyfriend over his brother 
  • “you are a pipe dream.“ 
  • he GIVES HIM A BATH ?!?! he towel dries him after??
  • he HelPS neil out of his t-shirt when he’s too sore to manage it by himself?? 
  • he’s so weak for neil that he’s constantly reaching out to touch him?? i mean c'mon people he was tapping his fingers against the pulse point of neil’s throat, i mean who does that, even with their crushes, who does that???? esp when it’s important to note he doesn’t normally enjoy physical contact & rarely ever initiates it but the tHIRST is rEAL !!! 
  • shitty middle school level flirting: "i’m not a math problem,” “but i’ll still solve you” “i need a new toy to play with” “i don’t like to share” like affghs this boy
  • matching phones, matching RINGTONES, wtf andrew we know you’re a twin but does everything have to come in twos??
  • he’s all about that rooftop romance aesthetic, chain-smoking at 2 am, trading retorts and kisses in the dark
  • he likes wearing fuckign skull caps. skull caps.
  • he has a thing for long drives 
  • he kissed neil like the world started & stopped at neil’s mouth, yea, you remember that line?? me too. i almost birthed my kidney when i read it.
“andrew doesn’t give a shit-”

boi let me stop you right there !!

  • at first andrew doesn’t want to keep in touch with aaron but then he eventually tries to make it work, he promises aaron that he will keep him safe and he’s so intent on keeping this promise that he kills their mother because she was a threat. she would never stop hurting aaron and one day she would cross the line. andrew did the simple math and decided it’s his mother or aaron, he chose his brother.
  • when those homophobes in front of the club attacked nicky, andrew beat them up and he almost killed them. he wouldn’t do that for everyone but he did for nicky, because he cares.
  • then he takes in another stray cat, aka kevin day, and decides that yes, kevin is an insufferable asshole with his obsession over exy and making andrew better, but he will still protect him from riko and the ravens for as long as he lives. he promised he will keep kevin safe
  • (also maybe he liked the way kevin said andrew is actually worth something because no one ever said something like that to him, and maybe andrew started to care a little bit about himself too)
  • then you have the thing with matt and columbia. maybe it wasn’t the greatest idea ever but andrew actually wanted to help. not only matt but also aaron. he believed in matt that he will overcome his addiction for the second time (and he was right), he didn’t want his brother to feel uncomfortable and maybe go back to hard drugs because he gives a shit about stuff like that
  • after drake the only thing andrew cared about was if aaron is okay. andrew was the assaulted one but he still cared more about his brother than himself
  • (and from now on i’ll probably only talk about neil because c’mon)
  • first of all: andrew actually picks neil’s clothes when they go out, like he takes time to buy him stuff, he knows what size to pick. woah.
  • he asks neil what would it take to make him stay at palmetto (!!)
  • he gives neil a key to the house in columbia, andrew was the first person that made neil feel welcome, at home.
  • he duplicates keys to his car so that neil can drive it whenever he wants to, i mean ???
  • he chooses neil over his brother
  • he chooses neil over kevin
  • (andrew would literally choke kevin when he found out that kevin knew about nathaniel from the beginning even tho andrew was supposed to keep kevin safe)
  • (also when kevin is like “if you hit me again” @ neil, andrew is just like “you’ll what?”)
  • andrew secures neil’s bandages to make sure they won’t get wet
  • and then he giVES NEIL A BATH and towel dries him after ??? are we talking about andrew “i hate everyone” minyard ??? YES WE ARE
  • also he helps neil out of his shirt when he sees neil is too sore to do it alone
  • andrew hates sleeping somewhere when he can’t be close to the wall, he definitely hates sleeping with other people but he curls up next to neil on the floor with the rest of the foxes just so he could be close to neil
  • after neil is abducted, andrew checks every possible hospital several times. he literally burns down the world to find neil
  • HE BROKE RIKO’S ARM BECAUSE RIKO THREATENED NEIL WHAT THE FUCK
  • “stay”

there’s probably so much more but i think that’s enough to show you how much andrew minyard actually cared. he’d never broken a promise and just because he isn’t your typical sappy boy you’re used to doesn’t mean he’s a bad person. andrew cared probably more than anyone in this series (save for matt because lets be honest here) and i won’t stand here for this bullshit, neither will andrew.

Elorcan - mini fic!

Anonymous said: “You should do a fic w/ Elide and nox meeting post war and she hasn’t completely forgiven lorcan yet. Her and nox become really good friends and this makes lorcan jealous.” - Sorry it took me so long to get to this. My box is so filled, but this was a good angsty ask so I couldn’t ignore it!

[I’m Tired - Elorcan]

“Let me help you with that,” said a deep male voice. Elide looked up to see Nox Owen, now lifting the crate from her arms. “Who the hell told you to bring this to the castle?” Elide shrugged.

“I took it upon myself.”

“Elide Lochan, you’re a glutton for punishment,” he said. A ghost of a smile crossed her lips. She limped along with Nox up to the grand entrance of the castle in Orynth. He always walked slower when he was with her. If it had been anyone else, it would have driven Elide mad, but there was something about Nox, something unassuming, maybe. He’d never asked about her mangled leg, never made her feel slow or as if she were a burden.

I'm not her(part 4)//(N.M)

Recap: “I forgot to tell you that you are 8 weeks along” he says as he walks back out. 8 weeks. That night when I suspected Nate was planning a very special birthday bash for me. Instead we got caught up tangled in the sheets. A night full of lust, passion, and love. Then 3 weeks later I learn Nate’s talking to Ana again and he forgot my birthday.

I involuntarily run my hand over my non visible bump. I can do this. My peanut and I against the world. And without someone to love them back besides
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*1 week and two days later*

*Nate’s POV*

I woke up feeling like shit. The light illuminating my room hurts my eyes, but I’m to lazy to get up and close the blinds. I reach for my phone hoping to see any sign that Y/N has texted me back. The only messages I have been receiving are from Ana.

To: Nate
From: Ana
Hey wondering you want to meet up later today?

To: Nate
From: Ana
Nate why aren’t you answering me? Is it because your rebound girl found out about us? She clearly isn’t worth it.

To: Ana
From: Nate
I’m not answering you because you cost me the girl I was supposed to marry in a few years have a big family with.

To: Nate
From: Ana
Well she didn’t cross your mind when you met me a week ago. Not even when you responded to all my text asking to meet you and something more. And she clearly didn’t cross your mind when you gave me a heated kiss at the club. Don’t be foolish Nate she was just a rebound until I got back.

After reading her text I wanted to throw my phone at the wall again. Y/N would never be a rebound I was expecting to marry her after two years of dating. I’ve never cuffed before like I did with Ana. Y/N makes it feel natural like spending life with her would be a dream.

*Y/N’s POV*

I woke up today receiving texts upon texts from Nate.

To: Y/N
From: Nate
I know I did wrong kissing her. Trust me it was the worst mistake. I love you, please never forget that, baby….

To: Y/N
From: Nate
Y/N its been a week and I’m a wreck without please answer me.

To: Y/N
From: Nate
I know you don’t want to hear from me but at least let me know your

To: Y/N
From: Nate
Say something, I’m begging on my knees

To: Nate
From: Y/N
I’ll be by later for the rest of my things. Please don’t be there and text me when you are on your way home.

It was heart breaking sending him that text. Sooner rather than later I had to send it as I receive another text from Dr. Nicholas which I’ve come to know his name is James.

To: Y/N
From: James
I was wondering if you wanted to meet at the local ice cream parlor in front of the park near the hospital?

To: James
From: Y/N
Sure,  I would like someone to talk too. Meet you there at four I have to do a few errands.

To: Y/N
From: James
Great see you there.

I reread his text and I’m decided whether to cancel or not. The local ice cream parlor he is talking about is the one I used to go with Nate. I decided to stick with meeting seeing as I have been hiding in my apartment for the past to days.

I change into some casual clothes and walk towards the vanity in my room. My cheeks are pale my eyes do not have there usual sparkle. The baby bump has become a little more visible.

It looks like I gained a couple pounds, but I know my little peanut is growing in their. He/she will always know the feeling of being loved. I will fulfill all their dreams like my parents did for me .

I get in my car and drive to Nate’s house. The driveway is clear of any cars which I was hoping for. I walk in with the duplicate key. The living room is a mess bottle aid Hennessy piled up on the table. Glass all over the floor. The pictures frames holds only pictures of me.

The ones of both of us has Nate missing. He scratches his face out or ripped the picture in half. My fingers run over the ink that he used to scratch his face out. It’s fresh the ink staining parts of my finger.

I slowly walk up the stairs towards our bed room. The door is closed, but a punch in the door is visible. I open the door and find a figure laying on the bed.

“Nate?” I question from the doorway.

“Y/N” he says getting up and rushing towards me. I step back holding my hand in front of me to stop him from advancing.

“Don’t step closer. I asked you to text me if you where here” I tell him shaking my head as tears cascade down my face.

“I know, but I had to see you one more time” he says looking at me when I refuse to look at him back.

“I’m here to get my things and leave” he grabs my wrist as I walk into the room. Swazz soon appears and Nate let’s go.

“Do you need help?” Swazz asks. I nod my head as I grab suitcase to put the rest of my undergarments and shirts in the bag. He grabs another to put my pants in that one. Nate’s watches from a distance tears falling from his eyes.

I do the best to ignore it and keep packing. I grab the suitcases, but soon pulled out of my grasp.

“You shouldn’t be carrying something like this” Swazz says as he takes them from my hand. My eyes widen at his words.

“I’m just saying you look fragile right now” he says as he walks down the stairs. I let out a sigh of relief seeing as he knows nothing about my pregnancy.
I walk behind him not looking back this time.

Nate’s eyes follow me as I walk outside. His face appears in the window when I give Swazz a hug goodbye. I leave the driveway hoping that this house will just become a distant memory.

I make my way to the ice cream to meet James. Maybe he can help with this obstacle I’m facing right now in life.

a thousand proposals

They met at a college party, had some drinks with a lot of others, and still found that they liked each other the morning after despite the fact that Keith had thrown up on Shiro’s favorite shirt. They slowly became that couple that easily fit into each other’s spaces and the much rougher puzzle pieces as well – Shiro learned early on how Keith can be temperamental, and Keith discovered the extent of Shiro’s cooking skills the hard way. Nonetheless, they found a way to live with each other, because they found that it was impossible to do otherwise.

Keith knew Shiro was going to be a definite part of his life when the man walked out of his room after Keith’s outburst and returned with a bucket of ice cream and a big blanket. Shiro knew he was absolutely sure when Keith still came back after the hundredth burnt quesadilla (or what should have been a quesadilla).

They’ve been proposing to each other before they knew it.

“I want to taste your first unburnt non-preserved dish,” Keith says one day in the economics room. “Will you keep cooking for me until then?”

Shiro’s immediate response is a stupid yet adorable giddy smile. “Even after then.”

A Dragon’s Hoard by Morgan L. Hale

There are three primary misconceptions about dragons.  The first has to do with a dragon’s hoard.  Despite what has always been believed, a dragon’s hoard didn’t have to be gold.  Oh, it could be, certainly.  On more than one occasion it was.  However, for the most part, this was a rumour, spread by the hunters to gain the help of the greedy.

You see, for a dragon, the hoard had nothing to do with value (as we humans perceive it), but about the collection itself.  I knew of one dragon whose hoard was rocks.  Not even particularly large or colorful rocks.  Simply, rocks, such as you could find anywhere.  Another dragon made a hoard out of waste and refuse, accidentally creating the world’s first garbage dump.  Though the surrounding cities and villages were the cleanest by far, none wanted to live downwind from her lair.  A third dragon had actually made an attempt to hoard water, and was in the midst of diverting a river to his home, before a clever villager showed him the beach (where the dragon happily lived out the remainder of his days).

Another misconception about dragons is that they are violent.  Not so.  Dragons attack under one of two circumstances.  When they (or their family) are threatened or when their hoard is threatened.  I have never seen a dragon go out of its way to willfully harm any living creature, unless that creature attacked it first.  In fact, one enterprising city actually formed a lengthy partnership with a dragon.  In exchange for adding to the dragon’s great hoard (in this case, books), the dragon would protect the city from invaders.  This was a price the dragon paid happily since, from the moment the citizens started adding to her hoard, she perceived them as family.  This story, unfortunately, has a very sorry end (I won’t go into details, as I’m sure you’re already familiar with the tragedy of the Library of Alexandria).

The final misconception about dragons is that they no longer exist.  This, I can assure you, is a complete and utter falsehood.  Oh, there’s far fewer of them, certainly.  They’re also much smaller than they were in days past (imagine, the size of a canine, rather than an elephant).  Their hoards have changed too, and they’re much sneakier about collecting them.  I’m personally acquainted with two dragons, one of whom collects socks, another of whom collects keys (this latter dragon I met when he attempted to make off with my keys!  I was able to retrieve them, most fortunately, by purchasing him a key cutting machine.  Now he only borrows keys, and adds the duplicates to his hoard).

I was a child when I met my first dragon (the first of several, as it would turn out).  He was young, just as I was, and very curious (just as I was).  His collection, I would come to find, was trees, and his hoard was the very forest that attached to my backyard.  I’ve tried, many times, to write this story, but each time I came across one major failing.  I was attempting to write my story, when I should have been writing his.  So, in honor of the Dragon of Alexandria, I commit pen to paper and our story begins.

Andrew says 'I love you'

- Andrew says I love you to Neil but never in the form of words. He says I love you with a thousand actions & gestures.
- Andrew says I love you with his eyes when he looks at Neil like he’s the only interesting thing in a disengaging world.
- He says I love you whenever he gives Neil a chance where he would’ve viciously cut anyone else off for even trying.
- He says I love you when he makes him a duplicate key for his car and identical bands for his arms. He says I love you when he allows himself to fall asleep next to Neil despite that ever-present & prickling sense of anxiety that stirs inside him whenever there’s too much proximity to another person.
- He says I love you when he chooses to share anything about the nightmare that has been his life, even if it’s always vague & leaves Neil all flustered & speechless.
- He says I love you when he chooses to invest in Neil. 
- He says I love you when he sometimes lets Neil touch his jaw or face. When he indulges Neil’s ‘unattractive neck fetish’ and feels shivers ripple through his body at the contact.
- Andrew says I love you in the form of gasps when he lets Neil run his hands across his bare skin for the first time.
- Andrew says I love you when he hangs on to every word that comes out of Neil’s mouth with knuckles tight, even if he couldn’t care less. He says I love you because Neil is music and everyone else is static.
- He says I love you when he grazes every inch of lacerated flesh on Neil’s body. He says I love you everytime he stands up for Neil when someone’s giving him a hard time. Even that caustic death glare and that callous twist of the knife is for Neil’s benefit. (It’s usually Kevin who gets almost gutted.)
- He says I love you when he lets Neil stop him from acting out on his more violent impulses. When he trusts Neil to be enough. When he lets Neil be his bridge between the smokescreens of his black & grey world & everyone else’s more colorful one.
- Andrew says I love you everytime he tells Neil he hates him, even though he does probably hate him a little bit, for being the exception, the anomaly. For letting him get under his skin like nobody ever has and nobody else ever will.
- Andrew says I love you in a thousand bruisingly hot kisses, in every fervent roll of the tongue, in a promise bitten into Neil’s chest, in fingers twisted in hair, in a name called quietly in the night like a curse like a prayer.

HYYH: MOMENT OF SOLACE

[HYYH – Hwa Yang Yeon Hwa aka “Most Beautiful Moment in Life”]

HYYH: Moments Series

         A series of short stories or literally just moments that the characters spend with each other. Each story is not related to each other though. In contrast as to what the title suggests this doesn’t guarantee of a “beautiful moment” spent, it may or may not result as one at the end. Hope I made that clear.

Genre: Slight angst? | Supportive boyfriend!au | Slight fluff? | You judge! :D

Characters: Park Jimin x Reader

Words: 595

Warnings: nothing much just some curse words ^^,

A/N: This is the third installment of this series. The order doesn’t matter, tho. and thanks again for @dailydoseofdia for “reviewing”. stay amazing! Enjoy~

Jimin reached for his duplicate key of your apartment in the back pocket of his jeans, subtlety swiping his head left and right to make sure no one sees him going inside your place. He sure is wearing his dark-tinted sunnies and black mask enough to cover his face but he can’t risk anything. He intentionally came early today to surprise you. He is now cooking ramyun after tidying a few things in your apartment when he heard the opening and closing of the door. He continues what his doing, pretending he never heard you come in, then feel you walking towards the kitchen, “Hey!” he hear you say sitting down on the kitchen stool across the island counter. He immediately turn around when he heard a tinge of tiredness while you try to sound happy and excited.

“Hey, how’s your day? Exams went well?” he say wearing a worried frown on his face, he then remove his apron and sat down to the stool next to you.

“It’s alright, I guess. Stressful as usual.” You say, with despair laced around each word which got him to worry more.

He grabbed both your shoulders and turn you to face him. “Is there something wrong, Y/N? Shouldn’t you be relieve and happy that the exams are finally done?’ he asked cautiously and confused.

TLC

Guan Shan rang the doorbell.

There was no answer.

The steady beat of heavy rain on the windows of the hallway made up for the silence. It was flu season.

He flicked the duplicate key from under the doormat and let himself in. He Tian’s spacious apartment was dark. There was no sign of anything stirring, not even the low hum of the aircond in his bedroom. Guan Shan walked in quietly, looking for signs of the boy he knew.

“He Tian?” He called out, walking past the kitchen and dining area.

Still no answer. Guan Shan bit his lip and headed straight for the bedroom. There was a mass of something lying under the heap of blankets like an unmoving, ominous lump.

Oh god. Was He Tian even breathing? Guan Shan rushed to the bedside, throwing the blankets back.

He Tian blinked.

A cool hand pressed against his forehead, and the familiar scent of citrus body wash and Guan Shan spelled acres of relief within his system.

“Stay right with me.” Guan Shan was saying, stroking his limp hand under the covers.

“Nowhere else to go.” He Tian managed to wheeze out before ending in a fit of coughing.

Guan Shan stood up and padded away. He Tian tried to fight the urge to get up and tell him not to leave, but failed and sat up anyway. This caused a bout of wooziness so strong it made him sway to the side. Guan Shan was steadying him in an instant.

“Stay in bed, silly.” He murmured, gently wiping at his forehead with a cool, damp washcloth. “Let me take care of you.”

Okay, so wait. Rumors about the MacGuffin started to spread two years ago, which is when the first two episodes of Sakurada Reset take place. This photo shows either Soma Sumire or Murase Yoka, and Kei seems to think that she’s holding the MacGuffin… so obviously, at some point during this arc, Sasano’s going to have his ability returned and allow Kei to visit the world in the photo.

…But what about the two thought experiments introduced in the episode, the swamp man and the thinking rock? They slightly misinterpret the point of the swamp man one, but both of them as stated in the episode are similar to each other, and similar to Sumire’s “who is the android”.

The connections to the plot are also pretty obvious, but are they meant to be taken literally? If so, does that mean that Haruki is an android only able to act on orders from Kei, that Kei is a duplicate of a real Kei that died on coming to Sakurada, and that Sumire somehow either became the MacGuffin or her consciousness was transferred to it? I doubt any of that (…okay, I can kinda see Haruki as an android),  and I doubt we would get a straight answer anyway, but the author wouldn’t draw these parallels without a good reason.

Based on what we’ve seen so far, I would guess that Sumire did create the MacGuffin (whether she has an ability was never addressed), or was at least involved with it somehow. Was she or it dangerous? Did the witch see a future in which Sumire (or Yoka) did something like use the MacGuffin to eliminate all the abilities in Sakurada, and had the Bureau act on it?

I don’t really understand what’s happening in this series, but I like that it’s got me wondering about it.

A Guide to Time Lords (Updated)

This is an revised version of a post I made a year ago that now includes all the Time Lord characters that were introduced in 2013 as well as a few I missed the first time around. 

The Doctor (An Unearthly Child - The Snowmen)

A mad man with a box. You may have heard of him.

Susan (An Unearthly Child - The Five Doctors)

The Doctor’s granddaughter. The unearthly child. Big fan of John Smith and the Common Men.

The Meddling Monk (The Time Meddler, The Dalek’s Masterplan)

The first in a long line of villainous rogue Time Lords, although he is more mischievous than out and out evil. 

The War Chief (The War Games)

A prototype Master with some Seneca Crane-style sideburns. 

Time Lord Judges (The War Games)

Lacking anything even remotely resembling a sense of humour, this trio oversaw the Doctor’s trial and exiled him to Earth.  

The Master (Terror of the Autons - The End of Time)

The Doctor’s nemesis, the top dog amongst evil rogue Time Lords, and owner of one of the most magnificent beards in the universe.

Banker Time Lord (Terror of the Autons)

Warned the Doctor about the Master being of Earth. The Doctor thought his outfit looked ridiculous. Ha, he’s one to talk. 

Bad 70s Hair Time Lords (Colony in Space)

They don’t do much except tell us that the Master is up to something and take part in a small ‘Who Has the Worst Haircut’ contest.  

Omega (The Three Doctors, Arc of Infinity)

A great intergalactic engineer and one of the co-founders of Time Lord society. Got himself trapped in an anti-matter universe and lost his head. Literally. Despite being defeated by the Doctor(s), he showed up years later hiding out in Amsterdam. Purely for evil purposes, though. Nothing at all to do with the legal drugs. Honest.

The newspaper vendor who said, “Army forces has landed at Qingdao”[ep 1] was acted out by Fukumoto’s voice actor Nakai Kazauya-san. It’s not Fukumoto’s disguise, but a completely different character.  

Because it hasn’t been the first time the spies came back late, Sakuma wasn’t surprised when he didn’t notice anyone back [from their outings].  

Before Sakuma opened the door the exchange went like this: Miyoshi [Call] → Jitsui [One Pair] → Amari [One Pair for me too] → Odagiri [You got me]. At this round, Miyoshi won.

Hello! I've just found your blog, and love reading your posts. My question are for the TW 4X10 review. Didn't 2x09 showed us that Stile's worst fear is his father blaming him for his mothers death. Couldn't his embracing/relationship outlook of Malia be in part due to his missing mother figure? He also called Scotts mom mother once. Stiles isn't seen as being friends with as many of the people as Scott is. Also, I think the flaws in the relationships/overcoming them make the show fun to watch.

Hi,

and first off - i’m sorry this has taken me forever to answer, but the last couple of weeks before the finale i got so many asks i couldn’t keep up, but now i’m in the process of answering them all :) thanks for your patience.

Let’s start with the 2x09 scene which is basically Stiles’ worst fear presented as an hallucination of his dad yelling at him

Sheriff: Why am I wearing black? What are you, an idiot? I just came from a funeral. You know, people wear black at funerals. Get out of my face.
It’s you.
It’s all you.
You know, every day I saw her lying that hospital slowly dying I thought, “how the hell am I supposed to raise this stupid kid on my own? This hyperactive little bastard who keeps ruining my life?” It’s all you.
It’s you, Stiles.
You killed your mother.
You hear me? You killed her.
And now you’re killing me.

We know so little about the stilinski family and its history, but for all the love they have for each other there is clearly something not right between Stiles and his dad. Like most family drama, this is probably because of misunderstandings, lack of communication and misinterpretations. But that just explains the problems, it doesn’t excuse them. But i’ve got another ask waiting about this, so i’ll hold on for now. I really want to look closer at this, but i need to do some rewatching first.

But they both lack a female influence in their lives and they seldom talk about Claudia. This is evident because in the few instances they do, they both freeze.

1x10 Co-captain

Sheriff: You know, I miss talking to you. It’s like we never have time-
Stiles: Dad, you know, I have to make a phone call-I’m sorry. I’ll be right back.
Sheriff: I do. I miss it. And I miss your mom.
Stiles: What’d you say?

With the scene from 2x09 and other references as well, particularly from agent McCall regarding the sheriff and drinking, we get the idea that he struggled after Claudia passed away. And when people are grieving, hurting and under the influence things might be said that they don’t really mean. Or maybe they sort of do mean it, but never intended to say it out loud. Like the sheriff feeling overwhelmed and scared at the prospect of raising Stiles alone. A kid with ADHD and now also suffering from the loss of a parent. As a mom i can understand how such a thought can feel cripling.

We have signs that tell us Stiles feels guilty. Guilty for his mom’s death (why we do not know), guilty over being a burden to his dad, for being a handful. So he’s taken on a parenting role himself. He’s watching out for his dad’s diet and he does seem terrified at the thought of loosing another parent. This he even admits to Scott - he doesn’t want to involve his dad in the supernatural, he wants to shield him and keep him safe.

Stiles also seems to have an extreme need for information. It is implied that he spies on his dad, listens in on his phone converstations, snoops through his things, records, police files etc. His dad won’t tell him - like most parents he wants to protect his kid, but stiles doesn’t want to be protected - he wants to protect. So he steals keys, duplicates keycards, knows his dads codes etc. He’s monitoring him.

4x09

Stiles: I know about the bills, Dad. I know about the collectors calling about Eichen House. I know about the advance from the department, about the credit cards.
Sheriff: Stiles, are you going through my stuff?
Stiles: Yeah, I go through all of your stuff. Especially when you keep things from me.
Sheriff: I keep things from you because you don’t need to know everything.
Stiles: Yes, I do. I have to know everything. How the hell else am I supposed to take care of you?
Sheriff: You’re not supposed to take care of me! I’m the dad. You’re the son. You get it?
Stiles: Dad.
Sheriff: Son. I take care of you.
Stiles: We’re supposed to take care of each other.

Remember that talk Stiles had with Morell in the guidance office after Matt died?

Morell: How about we get back to you? Stiles?
Stiles: I’m fine. Yeah, aside from the not sleeping, the jumpiness, the constant, overwhelming, crushing fear that something terrible’s about to happen.
Morell: It’s called hypervigilance, the persistent feeling of being under threat.
Stiles: But it’s not just a feeling, though. It’s it’s like it’s a panic attack.
You know, like I can’t even breathe.
Morell: Like you’re drowning?
Stiles: Yeah.
Morell: So if you’re drowning, and you’re trying to keep your mouth closed until that very last moment, what if you choose to not open your mouth? To not let the water in?
Stiles: Well, you do anyway. It’s a reflex.
Morell: But if you hold off until that reflex kicks in, you have more time, right?
Stiles: Not much time.
Morell: But more time to fight your way to the surface?
Stiles: I guess.
Morell: More time to be rescued?
Stiles: More time to be in agonizing pain. And did you forget about the part where you feel like your head’s exploding?
Morell: If it’s about survival, isn’t a little agony worth it?
Stiles: And what if it just gets worse? What if it’s agony now and then and it’s just hell later on?
Morell: Then think about something- “If you’re going through hell, keep going.

This converstation comes right after Matt died and after Stiles has gone through a lot of drama with Scott becoming a werewolf, Peter and his murder spree and now this kanima business with Matt. It’s easy to assume that he’s referring to this when he talks about the not sleeping, the jumpiness etc. And on the surface that is probably true, but i also think this conversation masks as stiles opening up about things he’s been struggling with for a long time.

He’s basically describing trying to keep a panick attack at bay and i think this is what he does constantly. But he masks it, hides it and pushes it aside and focuses all his attention on others - mainly his dad and scott. As the seasons progress, more people have been included into his must take care of circle - like Lydia, Derek and also lately Malia and Liam. We joke about pack mom Stiles, but it’s really not a joke. Stiles has for all intents and purposes taken on the mom role in his relationship with his dad, and he’s projecting it onto his friends.

I agree with you that Stiles does seem to want a female influence as well, a mother figure in his life. But i don’t see his relationship with Malia as a result of this. I actually see this more as a parallel to his relationship with his dad. Stiles has taken on a parent role with both his dad and Malia, and i think guilt is at the root in both cases. I’ve disected the Stalia relationship here and won’t go into details now.

If there is anyone Stiles sees as a mother figure in his life, i think it’s Melissa. I have a feeling Stiles has been a prominent figure in their house in later years. Melissa reacts to stiles and his antics with the same kind of resigned amusement she does with scott and their interactions tells me she’s fond of him. Stiles feels so at home he’s even made himself a key something which doesn’t surprise Melissa at all.

I do think she’s been the closest thing to a mom he’s had since he was 8 and the scene in the hospital when he calls her mom is heartbreaking, but you can also see how much it affects Melissa. She cares about this oddball, that much is clear and at times i do feel she understands Stiles better than the sheriff does. She certainly has more patience with him.

And another thing - she trusts him. When she finds inconsistencies with bodies, she calls Stiles. She trusts him with the supernatural. She trusts him to help take care of Scott - like when the faked his death. For however much the sheriff loves Stiles, he doesn’t seem to trust him.

So Melissa is an important constant in his life, and so in the scene after Void has puked up another Stiles free of possession and Melissa is hesitant to touch him, you can see how much that really hurts Stiles. Because he’s scared the trust has been broken. Thankfully it hasn’t.

I wholeheartedly agree with you that it’s the flaws in people, the flaws in their relationships and how they deal with it that is the most interesting part. All the main characters on Teen Wolf are layered and complex, and that is also why we care so much about them and get upset when we feel things aren’t going the way we want it to.

Sho: [Recently I thought of having a drink with Aiba-chan so I went to his house. But he wasn’t there, so just as I was thinking what to do, I heard a sound of “pi – “ “pi –“ What is it? What is it? Ah! So it’s the dryer!I don’t know what I was thinking at that time but I just unintentionally took out Aiba-chan’s laundry from the dryer. (lol) After several hours Aiba-chan came home. He was drunk thanking me about the dryer.] 

So the question is, how did he enter Aiba’s house if Aiba wasn’t there? Does he own a duplicate key? O.o 

I’ve come to read several blogs about this through a a post on twitter. Don’t know exactly which concert MC it was. But who cares. haha. I love Sakuraiba.   

anonymous asked:

Why those keys square? Are they not cut or is it just me?

They remind me of Volkswagon car keys, actually. I assume there are other car keys that look like that too - I just think of Volkswagon because my mom has a Jetta. Obviously Harry’s keys aren’t exact duplicates for a key like the one in this picture, but there are keys that are square like that. They don’t have the cut jagged edges that most keys have, but they have grooves still.
