So…. I saw this. And I just couldn’t resist. Because I’m a weak, weak human being
Just imagine, when the Paladins come back to earth years later, nobody has a clue how or why a bunch of people that went missing quite some time ago reappear in giant robot lions out of nowhere. Suddenly both, the missing students from the Galaxy Garrison and the Kerberos crew are back and there’s a giant alien space castle and an alien princess and OMG.
When the media finds out about the Paladins they’re celebrated like rockstars. And since everybody desperately wants to know what happened out there, they’re invited to talk shows and stuff.
And now imagine Keith and Shiro sitting in one of these talk shows, dropping this on their audience because they’re both into memes. A lot. They planned this for weeks.
Also, Keith with undercut is my life now.
ALSO, Lance nearly got a heart attack watching this on TV. “MEMES, HUNK! HE USES MEMES!!! HE NEVER TOLD ME! MY WHOLE LIFE IS A LIE! HUNK!!! JUST LOOK WHAT HE DID!!! THAT SNEAKY LITTLE-”
Very Important mcnamawyer/veronamara headcanons that minna franklinshepard and i have been discussing
they start dating a few weeks after the whole incident with jd
veronica invites heather to watch the movie with her and martha because she wants to keep an eye on her
after that they just start spending more and more time with each other (bc heather is a natural follower and needs someone)
they help each other out, heather helps calm veronica when things get bad (even if she doesn’t know what really happened, she is always there when veronica needs it) and veronica makes heather feel better when she feels like she’s drowning
they have many movie nights and heather always ends up cuddling veronica bc she is a Cuddle Bug
one of their movie nights they end up kissing each other (its really sweet and gentle and shy) and after that it’s history
veronica is always the big spoon bc heather is so tiny
heather tries being the big spoon but it just doesn’t work and her face ends up in veronica’s shoulder blades and they laugh about it
veronica always teases heather about how short and tiny she is and is always picking her up and swinging her off her feet. heather pretends to hate it but she actually really loves it
no one realizes they’re dating for a while, they’ve been affectionate friends even before then and have been holding hands in the halls as just friends so there isn’t much transition
veronica tells her parents when they start referring to her as “your very close friend heather" and veronica’s just like “we’re girlfriends.” and her parents are totally cool w/ whatever makes veronica happy so they’re just like “oh okay dear”
heather’s parents are a different story, they’ve never really been fond of veronica bc she’s so weird and she’s from the poorer side of town and is like ten feet tall and laughs really loudly for ten minutes at every funny thing heather says
for a while they’re like “i’m sure there are some nice boys around honey” and heather is just like “but I like veronica” and eventually they get over it bc they do want their daughter happy
veronica goes to football games to watch heather cheer, she always brings hUGE signs with lots of hearts and heather always picks her out in the crowd. she gives 0 fucks about the actual football game and screams only whenever heather does something and heather blows kisses from across the field
one day after a football game someone comes up to heather and asks “why is veronica sawyer so obsessed with you?” and heather just looks them dead in the eye and says “we’re dating” and it seems like within the hour the entire school knows but it’s like totally whatever because everyone is still kind of terrified of veronica after everything that happened
heather duke makes fun of them for dating but veronica just tells her to shut up and kisses heather mac in front of her
they become the power couple of the school and a lot of people think they’re super cute. they sit at lunch with their arms draped over each other with 0 fucks to give
heather drags veronica around shopping which isnt veronica’s thing but she goes for her gf. veronica wanders off and comes back with stuff from the kids section and says it would fit better bc she’s always teasing heather for being so tiny
when they watch horror movies heather spends most of the movie with her face buried into veronica’s neck
heather makes veronica watch all of the rom coms and she always tears up and gets the sniffles bc “it’s so romantic” while veronica’s scoffing at the cheesiness and how all the movies are about heterosexuals
heather doesn’t talk about it but she constantly thinks about how veronica could dEFINITELY pick her up at their wedding and carry her bridal style
veronica buys an engagement ring for heather from her own parents
she goes in there and is like “i’d like to buy an engagement ring. can you bless me? i mean. can i have your blessing to buy an engagement ring? for your child. your child heather, that child. your daughter. i want to buy an engagement ring to give to yoUR DAUGHTER. I want to marry your daughter please” and she is extremely flustered
she has to make sure her parents dont tell heather (when heather has been worrying to her parents that veronica didnt want to marry her and would nEVER propose)
and heather’s parents get so excited and they’re like showing her the most expensive rings bc they want a nice one for their daughter and veronica’s getting visibly more and more uncomfortable as the prices go higher
they’re like “what’s wrong dear” and she just gets really flustered and is like “these aren’t really…. in my price range”
heather’s parents offer to pay but veronica is super stubborn and insists on paying herself so she gets a beautiful and simple ring but heather’s parents still give her a “friends and family discount"
when she proposes she makes sure it’s romantic bc heather is such a hopeless romantic but it’s also simple and perfect and heather nearly faints
and heather like gets so excited that she like makes out with veronica for a minute after pulling her to her feet (bc she made sure to get on one knee) and then immediately starts planning like “it should be a spring wedding. who will we invite?! OH MAN I HAVE TO CALL MY MOM” but she totes forgets to actually say yes and veronica just stops her and is asks “so that’s a yes then?” and she’s all teary and happy and heather is like “oF COURSE YES. I’VE BEEN PLANNING OUR WEDDING IN MY HEAD FOR YEARS. I THOUGHT YOU WOULD NEVER PROPOSE”
and heather keeps going on and on about the wedding and how she’s been looking at wedding dresses for aGES and veronica’s like "oh i’d love to see them” and heather gasps and says no bc they’re not allowed to see each other’s wedding dresses (potential or not) until the day of and veronica goes “i thought i just wasnt allowed to see you in it?” and heather just hushes her and says it will be a surprise
veronica is totally noT allowed to help with wedding planning also bc she’ll just be like “I don’t know I wanted something small and simple?” and heather is like “no shh babe you don’t get it I’ve dreamt about my wedding since I was like six years old”
they both cry when they first see each other at the wedding, heather is all teary walking down the isle just from seeing veronica on the other end
they write their own vows and in heather’s she says “with you, i am a gameshow host” and at the end she really quietly goes “thanks for coming after me”
“you’re super short and i’m sorry but it’s really really cute whenever you try to reach that book on the top shelf here lemme help you- oh no don’t be embarrassed, your face is all red and you’re even more adorable now i am going to die” au
“i’m a biker and one day i was biking in your neighborhood while you just happened to be outside watering the plants and since you’re so goddamn cute i accidentally steered into a pole and now you’re giving me first aid (holy shit you’re even cuter up close)” au
“you’re biking through my neighborhood and you ran into a pole so now i’m really concerned and patching you up, oh my gosh you’re really hot even though you have a bloody nose” au
“i’m at a karaoke bar and i’m sober enough to realize that your voice singing my absolute favorite song is the most beautiful thing i’ve ever heard, and you caught me staring and winked at me oh shit” au
“you fell asleep on my shoulder on the plane ride and i would ask you to move but you look so comfy and adorable when you sleep. also you smell really good and the feeling of your breath on my skin is somewhat relaxing, maybe we can go out to lunch in this shitty airport when you wake up?” au
“you’re so perfect and i’m in love with you but i’ve never actually met you and you keep avoiding meeting up, so i called nev and max to help me figure out whether or not you’re catfishing me” au
“whoa it turns out you were actually just super shy and you’re even cuter in person pls kiss me in front of all these cameras” au to followup with that
“i’m a quiktrip worker and whenever I work a night shift, you always arrive and buy like 3 cans of redbull and you look exhausted, do you need some help? are you okay?” au
“you invited me to your brother’s/sister’s wedding as a plus one bc we’re hella best friends but we end up making out at the afterparty and now everyone thinks we’re fucking so uh,, u wanna go out for a drink sometime? try this whole couple thing out?” au
“my sister tried to set me up with her friend but little does she know that i am hella gay and i end up falling in love with her smoking hot brother, and whenever i hang at her place we always tell my sister that it’s for a date when really she’s now just trying to set me up with her brother” au
(this can be tweaked in any way to fit your otp :p)
“i’m one of those talk show stars that walks up to random people on the streets and asks them really obscure questions, and you’re really cute and camera shy and i’m sorry but it’s adorable how you stutter when you’re nervous, uh, perhaps when there aren’t so many cameras surrounding me i can buy you a drink?” au
“you just came up to me on the street and asked where the weirdest place i had sex was and i’m assuming it’s for one of those talk show things, but i’m really nervous because you’re really really hot in that suit holy shit” au

“my mom/sister/dad/brother/best friend doesn’t know we’re dating but one day he/she/they walked in on us making out and started cheering oh my god this is so embarrassing i’m so sorry” au
“you have fire powers and i have ice powers and one day you save my ass and even though we’re supposed to be rivals, you’re actually really really cute and warm can i just stay in your arms forever bc i am perpetually cold” au
“you have ice powers and i have fire powers and i save your sorry ass from getting hurt/killed, okay i know we’re supposed to be rivals according to every legend ever but you’re adorable and wow you’re really cold, would you like me to warm you up?” au
“i’m so sorry i’ve been stowing away on your ship but i’m lonely and tired and starving with nowhere to go so please take pity on my poor soul bc you’re the sweetest pirate i have ever met and since we’re in the middle of the ocean now there’s no way you’re taking me back to land anytime soon” au
“i would be furious at you for stowing away on my ship if it weren’t for the fact that you look really sick and sad can i help you” au
“dude why did that siren take on my image to try and seduce you, is there something you wanna tell me” au
“I’m an elf with really bad aim so while hunting i accidentally shot you in the shoulder with an arrow i’m so sorry can i make it up to you in any way? oh shit you’re a wizard, please don’t turn me into a frog i’ll do anything you want me to” au
“we’re coworkers and all the other employees ship us so just for fun we all go out clubbing/to a bar but little do we know its actually a plot they set up to get us to realize our supposed love for each other. wait you’re actually a really good dancer and your laugh is so endearing and, holy shit, maybe our colleagues were right” au

(cont.) “you look so sad and cold that i just tell you to keep my hoodie b/c you obviously need it more than i do. a week later i see you at a coffee shop/book store/etc. and you’re wearing my hoodie which you look so fucking tiny and cute in, and you just saw me and you look super embarrassed; you offer me it back but i tell you it suits you more and we end up talking and i buy you a drink” au
“we’re partners in cupcake wars and i never realized how cute you look with frosting on your face until now but no distractions, we have to fucking pummel these other teams because we are the best goddamn cupcake company in the universe WE CAN DO THIS” au
“i’m swimming laps in a lake alone at night and i thought no one else was here but i just swam right into you and uh?? you’re not wearing a shirt and you’re hot as hell pl ease take me right here” au
“i took you to my family’s lakehouse and we went jetskiing which you were so adorably excited about b/c you’ve never been, and when we drove around on the water at ungodly speeds u held onto me b/c there was nothing else to hold onto” au
“my friends dared me to buy 20 condoms but i didn’t realize that the cute cashier would be working tonight so i avoided eye contact as i piled them onto the counter and please stop laughing so hard, oh my god it’s for a dare okay i’ve never had sex in my life and once you stopped laughing, i swear i fell in love with that sparkle in your eye as you grinned wildly at me and asked me out for a drink” au

“i’m a radio host who indirectly mentions you and flirts with you on my show but you’re so goddamn clueless, please just notice me i’m so desperate for you it’s kind of sad (see: welcome to night vale)” au

Minerva has a drawer in her desk. It is the top left one and the handle goes months at a time without being touched. However, she has not forgot its contents. Every once in a while after a few stiff drinks she will gain the courage to open it. Slowly and carefully as if it will attack her.
She opens it with one hand and a glass of firewhisky in the other.
She pulls the contents out one by one.
The first is a simple splinter of wood. What was left of her broom from her school days. She rubs the scar on her stomach.
The next is a picture of a group of wizards covered in dust and curse marks of various severity. They all are grinning and the one on the end laughs as he leans against a chair, unable to stand properly. It was probably one of the last times Alastor was that carefree. Things had gone down hill for him sometime after she left the Auror’s offices.
The next makes her hand shake as she pull’s it out. She bit her lip as she stares down at the yellowing wedding invitation.
“We would like to invite you to the joining of Lily Evans and James Potter in holy matrimony on May 14th 1979.”
“P.S. Padfoot demands that you be his date.”
She laughed as she looked down at the next item. A piece of parchment with scribbles and a horribly written poem lay in front of her. James had been trying to write about Lily’s ‘tomato red hair’ instead of working during class. She had taken it away and shown Pamona at dinner and the Hufflepuff Head nearly choked on her food that night.
She sets it down and picks up the next photo. She remembers this one clearly. Sirius had shoved a camera into a younger student’s hands right before he boarded the Hogwarts express to leave for the last time. Minerva stood in the middle, smiling with Remus on one side towering over her, Lily and James next to him leaning against each other, Sirius and Peter on her other side. She watched as the camera went off, Sirius quickly turned and kissed her cheek. The photograph captured her surprise and mild outrage and his grin before ending and starting again.
Holding back tears, She pulls the next one out. It was at headquarters during the first war right before Lily and James went into hiding. Lily sat on a chair with a grin as she watched James hold a hand to her stomach and felt his child kick for the first time. He looked at her in complete awe as he looked on the verge of tears. In the background a tired looking Remus and Frank Longbottom held back Sirius as he attempted to charge forward to feel his godchild’s kicks.
Minerva shook her head and took a large drink from her glass as she pulled the next item out. A small photo of four boys. Peter held the camera up high and squinted his eyes against the setting sun while in the background a sixteen year old Remus fell to his knees in laughter as Sirius screamed at James who perched on a tree continuing to toss leaves and bark into his future best man’s hair.
She wishes she could reach into this picture and shake Peter. Ask him why.
She wishes she could scream to them. Warn them.
She wishes that this damned drawer of memories was not the only thing she had left.
She wishes that James and Lily were alive and continuing to send her photos of their children.
She wishes that Remus would show up for tea like he used to.
She wishes Peter was that quiet boy who always jokingly left a saucer of milk outside her door.
She wishes that Sirius would send his usual monthly proposal owl.

A/N : I haven’t made a Drabble series in such a long time. Hopefully you all enjoy it! Want to be tagged?? Send me an ask!!
The card laid perfectly still on your coffee table. You sat there, staring endlessly at it, nibbling on the nail on your thumb.
It was the invitation to your close childhood friend. A girl you have grown up with since the second grade and was like a sister to you at one point.
But here you were, contemplating on the choices. ‘Accept with pleasure’ or 'Decline with regret’
At first you marked the regret line, knowing you shouldn’t go. Then your mind began to over think.
Suddenly, you crossed off the check, and marked the accept line.
Letting out a deep breath, you shoved it back into the envelope and sealed it before you could change your mind, for the hundredth time. And you slipped it into the mailbox.
Immediately, you felt sick. And before you knew it, you called him.
Luckily, he didn’t answer.
So you left a voicemail.
“Hey, so I may have accepted the invitation to the wedding. But I was wondering if you can rip up my RSVP?” You said, running your hand through your hair. “Um-thanks.”
As you hung up, you started to pace back and forth in your living room. The heavy feeling on your chest, lingering.
The sound of your phone going off nearly gave you a heart attack.
Looking down, your breath hitched as you read the letters on the screen.
“Shit.” You exhaled.
Cautiously, you answered.
“Hey…” you drawled out.
“Hey, you called?”
For a moment, you were glad he didn’t listen to the voicemail but then maybe if he did, he wouldn’t have called you.
“Y/N!” His voice was louder than before, snapping you out of your daze.
“Sorry. Yes-yeah I called.” You stuttered.
“I see that. But why?”
“I-I was–well it was about the wedding.”
For a moment, the line was quiet. Too quiet. You could feel your heart begin to pace.
“So anyways-” you tried to break the silence. “I shouldn’t have-”
“Please tell me you’re not going to the wedding.” He said. “You can’t. You’ll just ruin the day.”
Suddenly, you felt a lump begin to form in your throat. You were taken aback by his statement.
“Y/N, you can’t go. Okay? She shouldn’t have invited you. It was a mistake.”
Anger began to wash over you.
“Well–” you pursed your lips, having no control over your emotions. “Too late, I already accepted. So looks like I’ll see you there. Asshole.”
And before he could say another word, you hung up and threw your phone across the room.
You were panting from the adrenaline that pulses through you. The anger now simmered down but you were still upset.
Bucky was the love of your life. Ever since you were eight years old. And once you two were seniors in high school, he asked you out.
Those four years were the best years of your life, but then he ended it without warning.
The phone was now lighting up once again. And you could feel the heaviness in your gut.
Summary: Bucky AU. After a major deal falls through, your father’s business almost falls apart. In a desperate attempt to save his livelihood, he seeks the help of his oldest friend, George Barnes, who happens to be the CEO of one of the most influential businesses in New York. He agrees, but on one condition. You have to marry his son.

In the hours that passed, you found yourself growing more and more excited for your date with Bucky. It was strange, you thought, that your situation had changed so quickly. Your relationship had more than its fair share of ups and downs so far. Perhaps this was going to be the turning point.
After Bucky explained the photo, you immediately texted Wanda, filling her in on everything that had happened that afternoon. You didn’t mention the fight that the article caused, though. If she had known, she would have felt extremely guilty. It wasn’t her fault, after all. Even if her text had led to your rash actions, she had only been trying to protect you, to make sure you were safe and happy. She meant well.
Are there any B99 characters that you would say subvert expectations?
say that every main character – with the exception of Gina – subverts common
expectations. This is pretty much the beauty of Brooklyn 99, it gives us all
these characters whom we expect to be superficial caricatures, and completely turns them on their heads, giving us rich,
layered and well-developed characters who completely buck stereotypes.
us Jake Peralta, whom we expect to be a sexist, callous cowboy, but who is
actually one of the sweetest characters on the show who just needs to grow up a
bit. But there is no malice to Jake, no typical Alpha-Male bullshit or sexism,
he is respectful of his female colleagues, has a huge heart and he tries his best every day to overcome his faults and
prove himself to his captain.
us Terry Jeffords, who physically looks like a stereotypical Big Angry Black
Man, but who loves yoghurt and treats his co-workers with gentleness and
understanding, who is a “proud momma hen” with a caregivers’ personality, who
looks after his Work Children and builds princess castles for his girls and is
just one of the most beautiful and loving and caring characters ever.
us Rosa Diaz, who is presented as cold and angry and closed off, but who loves
Nancy Meyers films and is genuinely scared that she won’t be able to make a
relationship work, who gets upset when her friend doesn’t invite her to his
wedding and who tells her other female detective that she knows what it’s like
to fight for a place at the boys’ table and reassures her that she has her
us Amy Santiago, who embodies many of the stereotypical “nerd” qualities seen
in more down-trodden characters, but who has an insanely ruthless and ambitious
streak and will do anything to achieve her goals, while simultaneously being
one of the sweetest and most well-liked characters on the show, teased but
never looked down upon for her over-the-top work ethic or the fact that she’s a
us Captain Raymond Holt, by-the-book, detailed, determined and gay, whose
sexuality is never the focal point of his character but rather just a part of
who he is, who adheres to protocol and propriety, who paints still-life
portraits of a rock but who also
loves chasing bad guys, gets a thrill from arresting perps and loves to use
puns against Bad Guys.
us Charles Boyle, who seems so ineffective and like he just worships the
much-cooler Jake from afar, but who is actually a very good and efficient
detective, who knows how to be badass when he needs to be, and who has one of
the deepest and most equal friendships with Jake, where both parties adore one
another and considers the other their best friend.
99 takes characters who on a lesser or not as-well written show would be
caricatures, embodying stereotypes and living down to expectations, and turns
them into three-dimensional, layered and complex people, each with their own
set of dreams, goals and desires, each with their own hidden layers and each so
compelling that much of the show’s success hinges on their characterisations,
and this is why B99 is such a well-received and well-liked show and why I
personally would list it amongst my favourite television shows, despite only
coming into the fandom in recent months.
“Hi.” You yawn, “Hi.” You balance the phone between your shoulder and cheek as you type something into your laptop. “Will you be home anytime soon?” You look at the time and realize it’s nearly 12:30. You sigh, “I’m sorry baby, I shouldn’t be much longer, you should go to bed though.” “It’s okay,” Harry says, but yawns, “We get to sleep in tomorrow so I can wait up. What’re you working on?” “Just finishing a draft of my opening statement. I’m gonna leave it on Ron’s desk since he comes in on Saturdays, see what he thinks.” You finish the last sentence and hit save, print. “Why don’t you just e-mail him?” The printer begins to whir behind you, “Oh…” Then you giggle, “I’m so tired, I didn’t even think to.” “Are you okay to drive home, love? I can come get you, we can come back for your car tomorrow.”
It was an average Saturday morning. You had been walking back to the Tower after grabbing your usual morning coffee from your favorite shop when you saw it. Displayed in front of everyone that walked by on the street.
Your face was on the cover of US Weekly.
Stopping in your tracks, you grabbed the magazine from the stand and read what it said on the cover.
You couldn’t believe it.
The magazine was claiming that you and your teammate, Bucky Barnes, was married. The picture that they had on the cover was of you and Barnes walking through Central Park. He had his arm around you and the both of you looked pretty happy.
You gave the man who ran the stand a few dollars for the magazine before you kept walking towards the Tower.
The whole situation was kind of comical actually. There wasn’t anything remotely romantic about your relationship with Bucky. The two of you were strictly teammates. Sure you hung out with him more than anyone else on the squad. There might be a midnight weekly stroll that the two of you had religiously. A movie night or two might even be thrown into the mix, but Bucky wasn’t your boyfriend.
No matter how much you wanted him to be.
Being in the same room as him made you go weak in the knees. There was just something about him that drove you wild. He was so damn charming that sometimes you wondered if he could possibly be flirting with you.
You were far too nervous to admit that you had feelings for him. Instead of doing something about the way you felt, you bottled it all up.
When you made it to the Tower, Bucky was sitting in the kitchen with Sam and Steve having breakfast. You placed the magazine in front of them on the table.
“What’s that?” Bucky asked.
“Well, according to US Weekly we’re married.”
Bucky dropped the spoon that he had in one of his hands. “What?”
Sam laughed, grabbing the magazine to get a better look for himself. “Wow, I’m hurt that you guys didn’t invite me to the wedding. Aren’t you, Steve?”
“Definitely. I at least thought that I would be your best man, Buck.” Steve went along with Sam’s teasing to your dismay.
“How was the honeymoon, lovebirds?”
Bucky grabbed the magazine from Sam’s grasp and hit him with it, “That’s enough.”
You rolled your eyes at them, “Very funny. I can’t believe that magazines just publish bullshit like this and can get away with it.”
“I’ve had some terrible things written about me in magazines,” Bucky said as he flipped through the pages, “If the things they said about me was more like this, I wouldn’t mind it. I’m a lucky man. Who wouldn’t want to be married to (Y/n)?”
There he was being all charming again. You looked away from him and grabbed your purse to leave the kitchen.
“(Y/n)!” Bucky called after you once you were halfway to the elevators. You hadn’t realized that you were walking so fast.
You stopped so that he could catch up. Bucky stepped in front of you, blocking your path so that you couldn’t go anywhere. “Did I say something wrong back there?”
“I guess I just don’t– nevermind.”
Bucky reached down, grabbing your hand, “Please finish. I want to know if I upset you.”
“You didn’t upset me, Bucky. I just don’t know if you’re kidding when you say stuff like that. Or when you act really flirty. I guess I’ve gotten a little confused about what we are or what we aren’t.” You felt a weight lifted off your shoulders. You finally told Bucky what had been plaguing you for so long.
Bucky smiled a little, “I guess I haven’t been too subtle about how I feel about you.”
“So, all of the flirting and stuff, it’s real?”
He nodded sheepishly, “I really like you. I didn’t think that I was capable of feeling the way that I do after years of being brainwashed. When I met you, I knew that I could. You make me feel alive again.”
You turned and saw that Sam and Steve had been eavesdropping for the entire conversation.
“Get the hell out of here!” Bucky told them.
They ran off and you looked back at Bucky. He was waiting patiently for you to say something.
“You want to go for a walk in the park?”
“You aren’t worried about getting photographed there like before?”
You squeezed his hand a little and smiled, “Not really. At least now if they run a story about us romantically, it’ll be true.”
listen I know posts like this are painfully cliché, but for your consideration: the Magnus Chase series filmed in a Parks and Rec/The Office style
- Every time someone doesn’t understand/refuses to use ASL, Hearth sends a long, withering stare into the camera
- That scene from the Office where Dwight sets the place on fire bc he was mad no one paid attention to his fire safety power point presentation??? Odin when he was still disguised as an einherjar
- Any time Anyone is being hard on themselves Magnus starts complimenting them like Leslie Knope compliments Ann
- Every time Magnus sends a sarcastic prayer to his father we cut to Frey just frowning in mild confusion
- Amir: “Samirah why did I get a letter from a norse god inviting me to your wedding???”
- Any time Magnus says or does Anything, Alex either looks into the camera in exasperation or they cut to an aside of her ranting about how stupid he is
- The whole episode where Lil’ Sebastian escaped the petting zoo and got lost in the maze, but like, when Fenris Wolf escaped his chains
- Jack the sword is literally just Jean-Ralphio
- Magnus, wearily throwing himself down in a seat outside of Fadlan’s: “Give me all the falafel you have. Wait, wait- I’m worried what you just heard was ‘give me a lot of falafel’. What I said was 'give me all the falafel you have’. Do you understand?”
- Loki is essentially just both the Tammy’s and Jamm rolled into one
- Shots of Sam flying into danger and wielding an axe and just doing generic Valkyrie stuff and then they just pan over to Amir with wide eyes looking like he’s about to faint
- Every time someone curses, Jack lets out a “beeeeep” to censor it; Jack curses freely
- *one of those weird and uncomfortable Inge and Hearth scenes happen*
Blitzen: “The thing about Alfheim culture is…I don’t understand it.”
- Every time there’s a battle happening a weirdly non-battle song plays but the scene will occasionally splice to an aside of Jack just singing that song off-tune
- Every time Magnus forgets he’s supposed to be the healer of the group, the person who’s dying stares into the camera until it hits him
- Cut to scenes of Blitz and Hearth on one of their aside secret missions- “DONT be SUSPICIOUS, DONT BE S U S P I C I O U S~~~~” asl is worked into the dance moves
- Fredrick and Annabeth: 'Hey where the fuck is Magnus?’
Randolph: “~~Technically he’s HOMELESSSSS~~~~”
- We still get all the ridiculous death scenes in Valhalla but all the warriors act like the Citizens of Pawnee even when they’re dying like they’re Awful.
ex) Alex, holding a vase to one of the managers: “Yeah I made this in one of your pottery classes??? It’s TERRIBLE!” *throws it so hard at them they loose an eye*
ex) TJ, dying in his bed: “Yeah you know that water fountain with the 'do not drink the water’ sign? Halfborn dared me to drink from it and now I’m dying of a fatal infection. Sir, sir are you listening??? Sir I’m TALKING TO YOU! Are you aware that there’s waste in your water system???”
ex) Mallory, twelve arrows sticking out of her and slowly bleeding to death: “I don’t know what I did to deserve this.” - Magnus: “You were yelling at a bunch of little kids on the battlefield.” - “Well they SUCKED!”
- Every time someone predicts Blitz or Hearth is gonna die the camera pans in on Magnus who groans into the camera
- “Thor has never had a real job…in his LIFE,”
- “Mallory, you’re like a Valkyrie without flight magic!” - “…So like a person?”
- Every time Loki invades Magnus’ dreams he talks as if he’s expecting a laugh track and Magnus just gets more and more confused
- Magnus: “I have done nothing wrong, ever, in my entire life.”
Blitz and Hearth: “We know this, and we love you.”
- During the brief percabeth cameo in Ship of the Dead, every time Magnus or Alex stares into the camera or does an aside or something, Percy and Annabeth are like…what the fuck are you doing. What are you looking at. Who are you talking to. Why are the Norse like this???
- Hearth: *belittles or doubts himself*
Magnus and Blitz: *signing aggressively* YOU HAVE A L L THE STRENGTHS
- Alex: “Someone will DIE…”
Magnus: “…..of fun?”
- When Leslie lowkey kidnapped the gay penguins and took them to Iowa where it was legal??? Magnus with Thor’s goats
- Basically everyone who isn’t human is an Eagletonnian like that’s why they’re so fake nice about guest rights lol
- The cameras are really just Odin’s ravens
- Any time Magnus and Alex have a moment™ you can see Sam lurking in the background making excited eyebrows into the camera
- Any time they gotta talk about crafting or fashion Blitz is basically Tom Haverford you know I’m right
- When gods make ridiculous requests or give dumb orders and you get a shaky zoom in on the mains looking ready for the end
- Remember when Jerry lied about getting mugged bc he didn’t want to admit he got messed up trying to get a burrito?? Magnus after he tried and failed to fight that eagle that stole his falafel
- Blitz has absolutely said 'treat yo self’ at least once
- Loki, complaining about his eternal punishment: “I am the victim of a hate crime!”
Magnus: “That’s…not what a hate crime is.”
Loki: “WELL I HATED IT.”
