Warnings: A little angst. Mostly fun banter and fluff
A/N: To the anon who requested the Bones angst and the anon that requested a sequel to Seeing Double, I promise I’m working on both of those!!! I haven’t forgotten about you guys and they’ll both be coming up soon. Also look who made a fancy header image for this fic instead of doing homework B)
If there was one thing you prided yourself on, it was your ability to give the perfect gift, moving people to tears with your thoughtfulness on more than one occasion. Even Spock got misty-eyed when you gave him a handmade terrarium replica of Old Vulcan with his mother’s initials engraved on the bottom. The one person you could never figure out, though, was James Tiberius Kirk.
You thought he’d be the easiest, settling for an antique remote-controlled motorcycle he could drive around the bridge. You were almost shaking with excitement when you gave it to him for Christmas but two years had passed and it had yet to leave the shelf in his quarters. You switched up your game for his birthday, opting for a classier holoframe that displayed pictures you’d collected over your time on the Enterprise. His eyes lit up when you gave it to him, but three months later when he finally invited you to his quarters for dinner for the first time, you noticed the batteries had died and he hadn’t replaced them.
Once again @fanbows proves that she’s the Leslie Knope of gift giving! She got me a signed copy of Fangirl at the Worlds Collide tour :’) Now I’ve got a pretty pastel Fangirl trio! They look so gorgeous together ♡
You know what I need? A domestic bet between Amy and Jake.
Like, catching criminals is good and all, but how about a bet on who can get the best present for the other? Or who can make the best breakfast/meal?
Like they both ask Charles to help them, separately and “secretly” of course, and he really wants to help, but he doesn’t know what to do. He wants to help Jake win, but he also wants to help Amy make Jake happy with the best meal of his life. So he ends up giving them both the same recipe and instructions, to which Jake and Amy find out when they start cooking at the same time, so instead they end up cooking with each other, feeding each other, having fun, making a ton of mess, but who cares? because they had a great time and in the end they had great food
Or when they give each other their gifts, which would probably be the most ridiculous things ever but they don’t care, they’re both so happy. Amy’s like, “this is best gift ever! You win Jake” but Jake’s like, “no, babe, this is the best gift ever” and they can’t decide on which is the best gift so its pretty much a tie, and they’re both so happy and so in love with each other.
And then they can sit and cuddle in their couch watching tv at home, because you know, they’ve moved in together and it’s the cutest thing ever.
Boxing gym is having an opening night party thing next month, a day before boxing guy’s birthday incidentally, so a friend and I were talking about getting him gifts or making him something. We were stumped, because he made a joke (ish) about how every time someone gave him a gift it was whiskey and maybe we were buying into the Irish stereotypes too much. So we were trying to come up with non-booze related gifts when I was like “Oh, he likes jelly beans.” She was impressed and asked how I knew that and I was like
Also it’s memorable because ew who likes jelly beans
If you want to bake a pie that’s great, if you want to have a career that’s great too. Do both or neither it doesn’t matter, just don’t judge what someone else has decided to do. We’re all just people trying to find the right path for us as individuals on this Earth.
So as tradition goes, Ray (blog here) and Pichi, my roommates, have given me a priceless work of art for Christmas. Suki and Toph are my very favorite Avatar girls, and I’ve always been sad there aren’t action figures or statues of them. I was absolutely floored when they greeted me with this after I got back from my trip. It is AMAZING. And the best part is
