I don’t really agree with super granular gay speculation about someone who isn’t out but that being said I was watching this Naomi interview and she was talking about filming sex scenes and she jumped right into talking about how easy it was to film Mulholland Drive because it was with a woman and it felt safer and you could actually see her realizing she’s talked herself into a hole and getting more and more uncomfortable and at one point she starts blinking really fast and eventually laughs and says “it’s because there’s no sexual tension” in this kind of awkward way and I mean it could just be projecting or could really be true for her but watching that entire experience felt exactly like I feel when I say something weird to someone I’m not out to and I can’t stop thinking about it
Sadly, this is as HD as the ATLA episodes get, but I hope you give the video a shot anyway and maybe experience some of the emotions I had making it. Big thanks to @worddevourer for having this idea and my twin sister @splickedylit for consulting with me during its creation!

probably not consciously. he treats him kind of like a son sometimes, but that’s not very unusual for tony. tony has to be watched closely or he adopts stray genius children everywhere he goes.
mostly it’s pretty long distance–he emails and videocalls them, sets up scholarships, funds research, talks them through school problems, introduces them to employers… i know for a fact that at least half of the starkphone beta testers are sleep-deprived students across the country who tony has run into at some convention or facility tour and decided to keep. some of them come to work at Stark Industries eventually, but a fair number go into other fields.
he has a strange ability to pinpoint exactly which kid in any given cluster is an untapped well of talent looking for mentoring. we have a number of bets running on if he’s doing it consciously or not.
either way, he does it a lot.
he’s not very cuddly or touchy-feely with them, and he gets hilariously defensive if you poke him about it, but he’s actually a really good mentor, and he does really care. i mean, sometimes he uses the ‘do the exact opposite of what i would do’ method of role modelling, but…
‘“I don’t know,” Penelope said when I asked her how magic feels for her. “I suppose it feels like a well inside me. So deep that i can’t see or even imagine the bottom. But instead of sending down buckets, I just think about drawing it up. And then it’s there for me - as much as I need, as long as I stay focused”’ - Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
Thank you for all the lovely comments + reposts on my previous post! Means a lot :)
Pirate!AU: In which Erwin is the British navy’s bookkeeper, and Levi is a notorious pirate captain
So my half-baked AU is that despite officially being the British navy’s bookkeeper, Erwin Smith is widely recognized as a master strategist (albeit informally), and Levi must get his hands on this brilliant man at all costs; whether by persuasion or other means.
Erwin is befuddled by the fact that this infamous pirate keeps kidnapping him when surely he must have better things to do…
Not including the info on their little introduction posts. Stuff I got from tweets and the live stream. Craig Cahn: He was your roommate in college He has 3 kids. 2 older twins (Briar and Hazel) and the baby (River) He has an ex-wife named Ashley who he has joint custody of the kids with. They got divorced last year. He drinks marinara sauce like it’s a smoothie? He’s a total fucking bro. He and your dadsona used to go on Bro Brunch. He jogs daily and is strong enough that he can jog while holding River on his chest without hurting her. Mat Sella: He owns the local coffee shop, the Coffee Spoon. The name comes from a poem and even Mat admits that it’s kind of stupid.
The names of all the things on the menu in the shop are puns. Mat’s name is a Front Bottoms reference (Their guitarist’s name is Brian Sella and their drummer’s name is Mathew Uychich) Mat has one daughter He’s kind of awkward and really sweet. Puns! So many band and coffee puns! Hugo Vega: Hugo’s son’s name is Ernest Hugo has a Netflix account but he can never remember his login details He also has an old excel spreadsheet that he made years ago of wine and cheese pairings that he will deny exists but updates regularly He thinks his son only vapes to annoy him. He admits vaping is healthier than other forms of smoking but thinks smoking a pipe is more dignified. Joseph Christiansen: Joseph has tattoos that he covers He also owns a fidget spinner He has 4 kids. One of them is a daughter named Christie. He’s the first dad you meet in the game! He brings cookies he baked to your house Brian Harding: He has one daughter, named Daisy. She’s 10 He also has a corgi named Maxwell. Depending on what you choose he’s either the second or third dad you meet in the game. You! The player’s dadsona: You have one daughter named Amanda and she’s a senior in high school. She’s a photographer. Doesn’t Like authority. Kind of reckless. All around adorable. You had a wife but she passed away. Her name started with a C. You were in a Ska band called the Skauminist Manifesto You can choose whether Amanda was adopted or whether your late wife gave birth to her You and Amanda are new in town (Maple Bay). The game starts with you packing and moving. Amanda is pretty much aware that your into guys and is low key your wing man. General Game stuff: After you meet Joseph you have a choice to either go to the coffee shop and meet Mat or go to the park and meet Brian and his daughter Daisy and then meet Craig and one of his daughters, River. You meet Robert Small fifth at a sports bar called Jim and Kim’s (though owned by a guy named Neil) after a mom named Mary tries to hit in you You get the option to bang him almost immediately You actually see him before hand in the coffee shop but don’t talk to him until the bar. Damien Bloodmarch is most likely a vampire from the Victorian Era There are 13 children in total (including the player’s daughter Amanda) and 3 dogs (at least one of which belongs to Brian) That leaves Damien and Robert having one child each. There’s a cameo from the band Pup. Most of the dialogue in the game is grunting (provided by the Game Grumps and Friends!) The game will cost $14.99 when it’s released on July 13th at 10 AM Pacific The acronym for the game Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator is DDADDS and that was intentional The creators worked on this game for over a year and a half and really care about and it comes from a heartfelt place I’m pretty sure they’re already planning a sequel There will be DLC. Possibly more dads. The creators kind of hinted that they might make a mom dating game?
