The other one your friend? The woman? I used to have them. Used to watch football on Sundays. Went to church. I know I did, but I can’t picture it anymore. It’s funny how you don’t even notice the time go by. Horrible shit just stacks up day after day. You get used to it.
Yeah, I turn on the TV and I see everything lookin’ so glossy and pretty. You know, those people with their apartments in New York City that are the size of airplane hangers, and decorated from Williams-Sonoma, and yet they’re all in their early 20s and haven’t figured out what to do with their lives. I don’t understand that. What planet are people living on? So we wanted to do something that, while it’s heightened, and the situations are ridiculous, at least the world the people live in is a little more believable.- Rob-Mcelhenney
it’s 3 am and im imagining a twelve year old arthur weasley finding a muggle pen and excitedly using it for the rest of his hogwarts career. he writes love notes to molly in bright purple ink and (much to literally every professors disdain) does all his homework using that stupid pen that has teeth marks on it from how often he chews it when listening to a lecture.
and the one time that lucius stole it from him it was molly who tracked that fucker down, hexed him, grabbed the pen back and then just before she left she kicked him in the balls for good measure
This has been sitting on my desktop waiting to be colored for a while now so I decided to just shade it and be done with it.
Anyway, for a while I had this scene on my mind where Stan came to the house in 82 with Molly as an infant. Now in most verses Molly would be around 6 or 7 at this time, so it’s fairly different when it comes to when Stanley met Carla and had Molly.
Anyway, basically When Stanford opens the door he finds himself pointing his crossbow at his brother who is wearing a sling with a baby in it. It shocks Ford, and upsets him even more, because he can’t expect his brother to become a target when he is responsible for a child who hasn’t even started on baby food yet.
Ford freaks out, and Stan basically gets him to calm down by getting Ford into the kitchen. Once Ford sets down, Stan puts Molly in Ford’s on and tells him to hold her while he fixes her formula. This gives Ford a few minutes to focus on the breathing of the baby and on keeping calm and not dropping her. By the time Stan gets done with the bottle Ford is calmed enough to talk, and he explains everything that has been going on. They formulate a plan to deal with it together, and to find Fiddleford and help him so He can help them deal with the Portal.
Originally this was just going to be a sort of scene overview, but now I think it would be one of two really good options for the Mystery dads version of the “Better World” dimension. The other option would be that Ford had to take Molly in after Stan died, and in that Ford would decide to delay the portal because he felt it was too dangerous to deal with while raising a seven year old. I like this one better though I think, even though I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t work out in real life.
oh, Tate is still between 7 and 10 in this verse, like he is in the Journal. So though usually he’s only a few months older than Molly, in this one he’d be her big brother by several years. (Crap now I want to draw 20 year old Tate taking care of 10 year old Molly O.o)
I always took you for a queer, but I guess you’re just a little screw-up like your father. Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, that house is full of screw-ups. You know, I guess I shouldn’t really be surprised. A bunch of screw-ups in your family.
