people tend to forget how upset tony was with coulson’s death, someone he supposedly barely even knew let alone should have cared about and yet when he found out the news of his death he was absolutely distraught.
∙ He (D. Pedro I) could not help but respond to her great love for him, her good nature, sweetness, and considerateness (…) From the voluminous and frank correspondence that Dona Leopoldina carried with her relatives in Europe, it appears that Dom Pedro gave up tavern hopping and womanizing for some time after the consummation of their marriage. She begged her father not to believe the scandalous tales that he might hear about her husband. (…) He could be sharp-tongued and mean, but normally he was good humored and generous. (Dom Pedro: The Struggle for Liberty in Brazil and Portugal, 1798-1834 // Neill W. Macaulay)
i cant believe billy’s favourite movie is the sound of music
im listening to the sound of music soundtrack just so i can think about billy kaplan dramatically singing to it all
let me propose this:
-toddler billy being entranced by so long, farewell but he cant really
handle all the words yet all so he settles with singing goodbYEEEEE to
anyone leaving the house for the next three months
-child billy fully going for the hills are alive, standing up on the sofa to belt it despite his family’s protests
-teenage billy driving teddy crazy by knowing all of the words to how do you solve a problem like maria. it would be so cute except hes been singing it for four days straight now please billy stop
-billy kaplan the night before his seventeenth birthday singing I AM SIXTEEN GOING ON SEVENTEEN to anyone who will listen
-billy singing my favourite things and doesn’t bother to stop his magic from responding. wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings go soaring past the window. snowflakes start to fall from the ceiling and they stay on his nose and eyelashes. teddy is suddenly wearing a white dress with a blue satin sash.
-kate and billy trying to sing all the parts of do re mi between them
-billy tentatively proposing that their first dance at their wedding be to edelweiss. teddy considering it because that’s his favourite song from the soundtrack, and it makes him think of his mum
-adult billy singing i have confidence to his child while taking her
with him about the house, making her giggle as he does his chores by
magic and makes faces at his baby girl
-teddy offering to make the family tea. do you want it with jam and bread? opportunity glints in billys eyes. TEA, TEA WITH JAM, JAM AND BREAD he sings, and their 7 year old comes through to the kitchen to join in, and teddy can only laugh exasperatedly
whatever you do, don’t think about the fact that neither the apprentice nor nadia remember their relationship with asra. and asra has had to live with that knowledge for three years. don’t think about it.
Are you kidding me, this is the cutest fucking thing I’ve ever seen in my life, he’s a smushy cheeked, mohawked little ball of joy, he’s 6 months old and probably weighs 22 lbs and enjoys chewing on the furniture legs, but Maria is giving him exactly One More Chance at breastfeeding, and if he bites again then she is “DONE HOWARD, YOU CAN NURSE HIM IF YOU’RE SO UPSET ABOUT IT, I’M GOING TO GET BANDAIDS FOR MY AREOLAS”
I’M GONNA CRY OH MY GOD! XD
“Why would you say that to him? Why would you do that?” Jarvis hisses at Maria later. “Look what you’ve done. I blame you for everything that goes wrong in my life.”
“What,” Maria says, and then peers into the nursery, and nearly chokes when she sees that Howard has made literal fake breasts to wear over his chest for Tony to suckle from. “Why is he like this oh my God.” She sees when Howard notices her and nearly sprints away.
“Maria! I’ve made mesh material that he can suckle but not bite through! Do you think the other werewolves will like it?”
Maria wants to die at the very idea of mentioning this to any other werewolf.
(Howard does, at the next Meeting. The older women tut about how weak the younger generation is but one twenty-one year old with a newborn actually shouts “HELL YEAH I WANT MY NIPPLES TO STOP BEING CHEW TOYS.”)
