Robbie being unintentionally good at dealing with the children’s flaws.
Stingy claims everything as his? Robbie figures he’d never had something that was truly his and helps him make his own clothes. That are his only, have only ever been his and were made specifically for him.
Trixie causes trouble left and right? She needs attention, she is bored. So he entertains her and puts her in charge of something so she can feel important.
Ziggy is obsessed with sweets? Let him eat all the candy he wants. After a day of stomach pain and nausea he’ll never want so much candy again. Some things you have to experience to know they’re not good for you.
Pixel doesn’t like social interactions and sometimes spends hours playing video games right until the next morning? Robbie teaches him ways how to cope with being an introvert and feeling overwhelmed by sensations and explains things to the other children so they can be considerate. As for the gaming, the power goes out suspiciously often lately…
And what about Stephanie? Well, sometimes she can be a bit forceful and stubborn and can’t see other people’s side of the argument. So Robbie, simply by telling her no and annoyedly pointing out the things she missed/ignored, helps her be less narrow-minded.
And he does all of that unintentionally. He just does it without second thought, as if that’s normal and obvious while Sportacus stands flabbergasted and very much in love.
I had a nightmare last night and to make myself feel better I inserted Tony and a/b/o. Because I’m an asshole.
Obadiah has Howard and Maria killed, takes over their kingdom, goes to war. Tony’s still a child though, so he’s no threat, and an omega to boot, so it’s not hard to isolate him, to manipulate him, tell him horror stories to make him compliant. So Tony, young and terrified after Obadiah is killed and what was left of his kingdom conquered, has to stand before Queen Sarah and accept whatever punishment she deems proper. And Queen Sarah sees this young omega, just come of age, shoulders straight and chin up but visibly trembling in fear, she realizes he would not survive banishment, and she remembers Maria, remembers Maria sending some of her kingdom’s best medicine, a skilled physician named Erskine, to keep her own son from perishing of illness before the age of ten, and she decides she can repay a debt to this dead queen by taking care of her son. Steve has already chosen Bucky for his mate, but they’re both alphas, so they would have had to take on an omega at some point for an heir, so she chooses Tony for them.
(”Mother, we were discussing omegas ourselves,” Steve hisses at dinner, before Tony arrives. “We were coming to a decision. You didn’t have to choose this–traitor for the mother of our child.”
“Maria Stark is the reason you are alive today,” Sarah hisses back at him. “A queen murdered in cold blood by her husband’s adviser. We will repay her in this.”
And Steve wants to argue, because he didn’t ask to be healed, didn’t ask to be put in some dead queen’s debt before he could walk. Instead he turns a glare on his husband, who raises his hands and says, “I’ve learned not to argue with your mother. We need an omega and Anthony is just as good as any. You’re just mad because you didn’t get to choose. You were lucky enough to be able to choose me. Sometimes royalty must make concessions. This is one of them.” Steve’s still pissed off but he is lucky he was allowed to choose Bucky for his husband, so he quiets.)
Tony is given ladies-in-waiting. Those ladies-in-waiting choose to leave rather than serve him, and one even spits in his face as she leaves because her brother died in the war, and Tony thinks he deserves it, so he says nothing, lets them leave, and then begs off meals saying he’s ill. One of the guards checks on him one day, annoyed, because she has to take care of this spoiled brat instead of doing actual work, and she’s horrified when she finds Tony sitting in his dressing room, wearing the traditional silk breeches omegas wear in his country but the traditional jacket lying out in front of him, staring at it forlornly. Even with Obadiah in charge he had people to dress him, he’s never had to learn how to tie things behind his back sightlessly, and trying to do it in the mirror is difficult because everything’s backward. The guard takes in Tony’s exhausted, frightened expression and instead helps him put on the jacket, tie the silk cords properly behind him, asks where his ladies-in-waiting are and then falls silent when he admits that they left. She’d say something but she’s pretty sure any new ladies-in-waiting assigned to him would be worse, so she simply takes on the job of helping him dress in the morning, teach him how to tie the easier cords himself.
(”Anthony,” Sarah says, just a touch reproachfully. “I’ve heard news that one of our alpha guards is visiting you every morning.”
Tony nearly panics, because he doesn’t want Natasha to be punished but he also doesn’t want to explain that his ladies-in-waiting were so repulsed that they left him and he doesn’t know how to dress himself, so he comes up with a lie, because no one’s there to refute it anyway. “Where I come from, i-it’s tradition, that a female alpha come in to make sure I’m dressed appropriately. I’m sorry, I–I didn’t think–I’m so embarrassed, I’ve offended you, I’m sor–”
Sarah’s face softens, and so do Bucky’s and Steve’s. “Oh, sweetheart, you should have said. No wonder you couldn’t come meet us for meals, not having an unrelated alpha there to approve of your clothing. I apologize.”
And Tony feels horrible for making her feel sorry when it’s his fault for not knowing how to dress himself.)
Queen Sarah falls ill and it’s the worst because Tony has realized his medicine is running low. He goes to the royal physician, a doctor Helen Cho, and he stutters out a request–he understands that Queen Sarah is her first priority, absolutely, but if she finds the time–he’s running out of motherwort leaf, and he understands that it can be hard to get, and he has enough for some time but he will need some more soon. And Dr. Cho looks at him for a long moment before saying, “Her Majesty has the flu. I’m certain she would not mind me taking time from my incredibly busy schedule of treating her to get you medicine for your heart.” And she’s concerned, because motherwort–even if they didn’t grow it in the medicinal herb garden, it grows everywhere. She has no idea why Tony is under the impression that it’s hard to get. In any case, she insists to Queen Sarah that she put out a call for Tony’s former physician. For Tony to know he needs it, know the dosage, he must have a serious problem, and she would rather hear from the source of the diagnosis than Tony, who was apparently not aware of the finer details of his illness except for “They said I must take motherwort or I will die.”
(Bruce Banner arrives three days after Sarah has put out the public statement calling for him. Sarah opens her mouth to ask Tony if this was truly his physician but Tony’s eyes are full of tears and he’s covered his mouth and instead she asks, “Sweetheart, are you okay?”
“Obadiah said everyone in the castle would be slaughtered if our forces were overrun,” Tony whispers, a tear rolling down his cheek, and Steve and Bucky realize with a lurch of their hearts why everyone in the castle screamed and ran when they stormed it instead of trying to stay and defend their prince, and why Tony had stood and looked so resigned as they burst into the throne room, because he’d apparently thought everyone he’d cared for was already dead.
Bruce sees Tony and approaches swiftly, snarling so viciously when a guard reaches out to stop him that they scramble backward, and gathers Tony up in a hug, patting him down, feeling for injuries, and then he leans back and the smile they share is so intimate that Bucky and Steve feel a little out of sorts over it.)
So a little while ago I came up with the idea of Enjolras being an English Professor and being one of those professors that are really passionate about what they teach, but also one of those professors that has a significant other that their class is familiar with (when I was in middle school one of the teacher’s husband use to come in and bring her something she needed every few weeks and he always wore glasses and a hat when dropping stuff off so everyone would joke that he was her “boyfriend” because of how the outfit made him look so different). This is the first part of a long long series of headcanons so just you wait. Here are the first few!
•Enjolras begins teaching college students and is one of those intensely passionate professor but is also the youngest professor.
He teaches English and is always trying to inspire his students to stand up for what they believe in.
Enjolras has all his students call him “Mr. E” or something of the sort, because being called by his last name with the prefixes “Mr” and “Professor” made him uncomfortable and reminded him of his father.
He’s also got quick responses to the kids who backtalk cause his boyfriend has given him plenty of practice
•His students end up meeting Grantaire early on because R constantly stops in to bring his boyfriend coffee and stuff and then makes jokes to the classes and E doesn’t approve
It gets to the point where every time Grantaire enters the room, the members of whatever class E is teaching stand up with finger guns and go “AYYYYYYY”. Enjolras is not a fan of this practice.
•At Halloween E and R dress in matching costumes but E’s students don’t understand the costume at all until R comes in with one of those pumpkin lattes for his bf (because Enjolras is a basic white girl) and everyone is like “ohhhh” (Idk what the costumes would be but I thought it was a cute idea so send me ideas in my inbox)
•At like the end of November Enjolras mentions at the end of his class that Grantaire is gonna have his work in an art gallery for a week and he wanted E to find out if any of the students wanted to go to the opening night
Almost everyone shows up and they all giggle because almost all of the art is of Enjolras (obviously)
Enjolras smacks Grantaire’s arm (playfully) and is like “why did you only put up the ones of me you jerk, you have plenty of paintings of landscapes” and R is like “cause my paintings of you are my best work” and all the students go “awwww" E is just like “omg I hate you so much you’re such a cruel boyfriend”
•At the end of the semester E makes cookies for everyone and gives the students that aren’t taking classes with him the next semester little poems and they have a little class party
•At the start of the new semester R gets a habit of showing up at the end of E’s morning classes with a coffee for him and a sandwich bag at lunchtime on the days he doesn’t have to work himself
The newer students really enjoy the idea of a cute little artist guy popping in at the end of classes to bring his boyfriend a coffee because they’re adorable
•Valentine’s Day involves an elaborate scheme
Grantaire gets a bunch of paper hearts and writes down every memory related to Enjolras like “going to the first Les Amis meeting and practically dying” “whining to Courf about feelings” “painting you for the first time” “getting drunk with Éponine because pining” “taking you on the tour of favorite sites for our first date” “kissing in front of the Louvre” “Courf and Ferre’s wedding” “Trip to America” “Start of your new job”
The students in Enjolras’s first morning class put them up all around the room and pester Grantaire like crazy because it’s cute
Grantaire also gets those students to all sit at their desks and hold up letters that spell out “I love you, Enjolras”
R also stands in the back of the room with a rose in hiding
Enjolras walks into his classroom that morning and almost bursts into tears
R steps down with the rose and gives his boyfriend a kiss and everyone applauds because they’re adorable
•In March, Grantaire gets a letter in the mail and instantly runs to Enjolras once he reads it
Unfortunately Enjolras is teaching a class and R doesn’t want to interrupt his bf so he just bounces up and down outside the door waiting for the class to finish up
After a while a student raises his hand and goes to Enjolras “Hey Mr.E? Grantaire has been bouncing up and down outside the classroom door for like the last 10 minutes, I think he needs to talk to you”
Enjolras goes out of the room to his excited boyfriend and is shown a letter, reading that Grantaire got into a serious artist program that takes place in July and could be a big boost for him
E and R celebrate almost all night with Courf and Ferre and E definitely regrets it the next morning when he’s teaching an 8 am class with a hangover (He promises himself that he will never do that ever again)
•In April, Enjolras and his class study the Hunchback of Notre Dame (1. Because Victor Hugo and 2. Because Enjolras would love that book tbh) and so the class goes on a field trip to Notre Dame (since it’s only about a 20 minute walk from the school)
Grantaire goes with them because he knows Paris better than anyone and he’s spent lots of time at Notre Dame for inspiration
The kids are convinced it’s because Enjolras just wants an excuse to hang out with his boyfriend
Grantaire thinks it is too but doesn’t mention it
Enjolras wanted to see his boyfriend but also loves the fact that his boyfriend knew so much and loves watching him when he goes on about the stuff so he hopes his students enjoy it
•In May, before the end of the semester the college throws a big party/fair for all the students and also to raise funds for classes
R sets up a little station where he draws portraits of students while E sets up a table with buttons and pins you can buy
A couple students come up to them and ask them to tell the story of how they met. After 7 times, Enjolras puts out a sign saying their Love Story costs 5 bucks to listen to it
•While packing up his classroom some students stick around and chat with Enjolras
The students get all nosy and ask about E’s summer plans
“Since Grantaire got accepted to his program and will be gone for most of July, we’re planning on doing a lot of fun things together in June, also because it’s a big month for us because of our anniversary and my birthday”
•Once all the students leave Enjolras finishes his packing and waits for his boyfriend to come pick him up
Enjolras and Grantaire take the boxes out to the car and E ends up wrapping his arms around his boyfriend who says to him “I’m so glad you took this job, you’ve been really happy since”
EDIT: Originally I used Enjolras more as a first name than last name. I’ve since changed that after finding a first name that fits him well so “Enjolras has all his students call him […] ‘Professor Enjolras’ […] because being called by his last name made him uncomfortable” has been changed to fit the storyline better.
A/N: Here’s the second and final part of this fic. I hope you all enjoy it.
7:30 AM. Right on schedule.
Entering the department building, you make your way to your classroom and prepare yourself for another day of lectures and presentations…and the cute stranger who made a fool out of you with just one glance and a smile. Your series of humiliating moments from the day before still linger in your mind and with certainty, those moments still linger in the mind of the cute stranger as well. Maybe going to the library is the better option to let those memories be long forgotten over the weekend. You certainly don’t want him to taunt you about yesterday’s occurrences.
Sometimes I think I chose the wrong path in life. I wonder where I would be if I had made different decisions, done different things with my life, been a better person. What would have happened if I had jumped off that cliff when I was 14, the first time my parents kicked Gabriel out of the house, and I was left alone with them? Would I have died, or simply been shocked back into life, and not spent the next 5 years of my life doing everything I could to please them, so they wouldn’t force me out of their lives too? I wouldn’t have done as well in school, I think… but I might have realized sooner that I wanted to be a teacher, and not wasted so much time trying to understand science like my Father, the Doctor, wanted me to. I might not have wasted years feeling like I was stupid for not getting it. For preferring painting to chemistry and sculpture to physics. I might not have dragged myself around thinking I was worthless for so many years, if I had just lived my life the way I wanted to, for me, instead of for someone else. Though, every path takes us down another, and we’re funneled through life by these chances we take, the decisions we make, until we arrive where we are… Until I met you I thought I was happy. I thought that I could have kids with the woman I’m with, and everything would be cookie cutter and sweet. I don’t think I ever really knew what true passion felt like. I think that it was an alien concept, and I was just going off what I thought was right, from what someone else told me. Meeting you was like stepping out of a darkened room into the sunlight. You’ve left me blinking and I can’t look directly at you because it hurts, because spots dance before my eyes and I get dizzy… but I can’t stop myself either because you’re like the sun, you are warmth and gravity and you pull me in. I just know I’m going to get burned by you Dean, and I can’t bring myself to care.
We asked, you voted, and now Katniss and Gale are teaching archery together at Camp Mockingjay! So, here it is, the next installment of our story, brought to you by @peetabreadgirl. You have 48 hours to vote on the direction of the next chapter of the story (until noon EDT on Wednesday, July 5th). Remember: vote in the comments, not in the tags! And don’t forget to spread the word by reblogging. The more fans playing this game, the more fun it will be.
The next morning, the female counsellors are eating our oatmeal together in the mess hall and I notice a few of the teen girls whispering and pointing at some of the male counsellors. When Peeta says good morning to me as he passes by, I think I see hearts in their boy-crazy eyes. I spot Gale at the guys’ table, watching me. I wave but he looks away. Weird. Maybe he wasn’t looking at me? I shrug a shoulder and try to follow the conversation going on around me. Bad idea. For the rest of breakfast I dodge questions about whether or not Gale and I have a thing going on, and if not, then do I want there to be. I thought we looked more like brother and sister than a couple, but Johanna is certain the way he looks at me means he wants more than friendship. The whole idea gives me a queer feeling in my stomach, so I shovel my oatmeal in a little faster in an effort to finish up and get outside.
For the rest of breakfast, I have to listen to Johanna detailing the best spots in camp for hook-ups, in case we need to know. Ugh. I’m not here for boys. The only useful information she gives us is a reminder about the big bonfire tonight for the counsellors, and an invite to an all-girls swim at the lake tomorrow morning. I’m not much better with girl talk than with boys, but a swim with no kids sounds nice, and I really should try to make friends. Otherwise, it’ll be a long summer.
math, tea, math & a little bit more tea. my morning consisted of teaching myself some concepts i’ve had troubles with lately, since i haven’t really payed attention in my classes whoops! but to my pleasure i managed to do most of the problems, so i’m fairly happy!
other than that, i’ve pretty much spent my day drinking tea and reading thanks to @oasistudy. i seldom read so it was extremely cosy and relaxing! i just hope i can keep up with it for a lil’ longer this time!
Okay can you write more stuff where the band are parents cause that shits cute af
(Coming right up, love!)
2D: 2D would baby-proof EVERYTHING in his house until his kid was about 10 years old. “Dad, are these locks on the cabinets necessary? I already know how to open them!” “Bu’ Wha’ if da cereal falls ‘n hits ya head!” “Jesus Christ…” 2D would also shower his child in unconditional affection. He would tuck them in every night and kiss their forehead. He would even attempt to make them breakfast in mornings which usually leads to the fire alarms going off and the cereal being eaten instead.
Murdoc: Murdoc is the kind of dad that’s so overprotective that instead of hiring a babysitter while he was away on tour, he’d perform on stage with the baby strapped to his chest. Father of the year right there. He would insist on getting private tutors to teach his kid instead of sending them to public school. Murdoc would love his child more than anything but still has a tough time showing it sometimes. If he ever gets too angry to the point where he feels like yelling, he’ll leave the room and go punch a wall so he doesn’t scare his baby. They would mean the world to him and he would try to keep them away from the public so they wouldn’t date anyone. Dating Murdoc’s kid would be hell.
Noodle: Noodle would teach her child both Japanese and English from a young age so they would end up being bilingual. She would be very strict about what she feeds her child. She wouldn’t force feed them bitter veggies or anything like that but she wants her child to have the freshest ingredients. Since Noodle doesn’t eat meat, it would be a big change for her to have meat in her fridge. She would try her best to cook every meal for her child but sometimes going out is just way more fun. Noodle would read to her child every night. Sometimes in Japanese, sometimes in English. Noodle would take pride in making her child smile, it brightens up her world. She gets very lonely when she’s on tour and her baby isn’t with her. Noodle makes the lockscreen on her phone a picture of her baby so they’re always with her.
Russel: Russel would be a very caring parent. He would always give his child hugs and read them some books his mom read him as a kid. He would cook them breakfast every morning and teach them how to bake little cakes and cookies. Every time Russel goes grocery shopping, he’d put his kid in the cart and run around, acting like it was a race car. He would take them to all sorts of parks and museums. Russel loves making his kid smile, it’s his favorite thing to do. On the kid’s seventh birthday, he would buy them a little drum set and let them jam out with the band.
teach me not to fade. i am terrified of touching people who will forget my name in the morning sun, teach me to believe at i am made of such strong identity that i cannot be undone, that something in me is permanent, that i cannot be forgotten. teach me that i mean something.

If you're still taking prompts, how about clones liking a bit of extra chub on their partners?
Here you go. :) I hope you like it! (I don’t write much fluff!)
Obi-Wan had always had a knack for languages, and constantly being around his clones out in the field he had developed enough of an ear for the unique offshoot of Mando’a they all spoke he could pass himself off as one of them on a comm if the situation called for it.
This was a proven fact rather than conjecture, as Anakin had discovered to the loss of fifty credits when Rex had assumed Cody was on the line during a five-minute conversation about ‘Cody’s’ sudden desire to order an entire shipping crate of sapir tea.
So when Obi-Wan, Cody, and a dozen of the Ghost Company brothers were holed up in a trench as part of yet another slow-motion siege on yet another Outer Rim world, Obi-Wan’s ears perked up one morning when the group’s idle conversation suddenly became unintelligible. “<Pardon? I don’t understand.>” They had been talking about ideas for nose art for the new gunships that had come in the week before, he knew, but that was all.
