isak and even are terrible at domesticity and we have to talk about it:
they use their lack of a washing machine as an excuse not to do laundry for a week, but even after they manage to drag it all the way up to their 4th floor apartment, isak refuses to wash his clothes. it’s a thinly-veiled excuse for him to wear even’s clothes, and though even whines about the never-ending unwashed piles of laundry, he can’t complain when he sees isak wrapped up warm and cozy in his hoodies.
they barely have furniture in their house until they start an impromptu game of hide and seek one day, and realize that it would be a lot easier to hide in a house that isn’t empty. they make a trip to ikea to actually buy all the tables and stools they’ve been neglecting, and drunken hide and seek is easier after that. it’s still kinda hopeless though, because they’re both so tall that their limbs stick out from all their hiding places. but getting found isn’t the worst thing, not when it’s by each other, not when the game ends with soft kisses pressed to softer cheeks.
i was talking to @dahlstrom about this and they don’t have plates! anywhere! honestly they eat pizza with napkins, and their use of paper plates could singlehandedly fuck up the environment. they have a box of cheap ikea plates, but honestly, isak lost it under all their mess and they keep forgetting to open it until they’re getting ready to eat, and who wants to set up dishes when even’s pasta smells so damn good and isak just wants to shove it in his mouth?? vilde finally buys them a set, but they forget to unpack that too, so five seconds before she comes over for their first official dinner party, they’re both scrambling to open the box, to show all their friends that they’re actually super responsible adults.
no one believes them.
the worst part about all of this is how easy it is. it’s easy to get used to waking up beside each other the morning, easy to get into the habit of teasingly calling out “honey i’m home” at the end of the day, easy to sync their morning routines so they know exactly how to get ready together without getting into each other’s way, and start every morning with a kiss. they’re both aware that this may be the honeymoon phase, and there’ll be a time when they’ll find each other’s habits downright annoying instead of adorable. but they’ll both take this while they can, because there’s no doubt at the end of the day that no matter how often they’ll fight, how many barbed words they throw at each other, they have their entire lives stretching ahead of them - together.
Since it’s still femslash february it seems like a perfect moment to point out that I love these two and I really wanna know who the heck they are ?? I’m glad it looks like they’re with us on the fukurodani game too, though~
So, my workplace has this rewards system, where if we go above and beyond in some fashion (or if we survive an exceptionally shitty day) our managers can reward us with points, which we can then redeem through the company reward website for all sorts of stuff. It’s kind of an arbitrary system, and not every manager hands out points. Luckily I’ve had managers who’ve remembered the system, and I’ve worked there for years now, so I’ve been collecting points.
Recently, I finally decided to redeem my points. I was checking out the rewards, and on a whim I decided to look for The Clone Wars (because it’s me), and they had it! The whole series! So I ordered it. And it came in the mail today. But like, not only is it the boxed set, it’s the collector’s edition boxed set:
It’s got special featurettes, “making of” videos, special extended director’s cuts of some of the episodes, and a book of concept art! Look at some of this great stuff!
If you ever wish your art were good enough to be part of a TV show’s concept, remember that Dave Filoni draws chibis––
––and Snow-Soka! (with a hat for each montral)––
––and maps of fancy environments in simplistic markers––
This whole thing is a gem and I can’t believe I got this with my work points. I am unspeakably happy.
while I lowkey worry about the Donuts, I’ve been retouching some previous transparents I’ve posted and also editing some of them to have daytime palettes. kind of improvising Lars’ shirt color in Horror Club though
