-big fan of gothic and industrial music. loves NiN and Portishead. also an unironic Manson listener
-was the second in the group to come out (and the first to come out as gay - Jess came out as bi). Typically doesn’t make a big deal out of it but doesn’t hide it either, and cranks it up to 11 around Mike because it amuses him to watch Mr. Manly Man try to deal with being hit on the way he’s constantly hitting on girls.
-runs a half-horror, half-comedy blog on tumblr (it’s an odd combination but he makes it work)
-Jessica is the only person in the friend group who shares his weird sense of humor so when she’s around she’s a complete and total enabler for his ridiculous antics
-figured out you can stop an escalator by jamming your foot so the steps don’t collapse at the bottom. now stops every escalator and is banned from seven malls in the Los Angeles area.
-whenever the other kids are with him on an escalator and he says “hey, watch this” they all immediately start talking at once and beg him not to do it
-he does it anyway
-now the whole group is banned from a few malls
-likes to re-enact popular videos/gifs/vines. Somewhere on his computer there’s a video entitled “When Beth’s Not Home” that has Hannah playing the trombone in the kitchen while Josh rhythmically slams the oven door
-tries Jackass stunts at home
-purposely gets the names of all the My Little Ponies wrong to piss Chris off
-freakishly good at DDR
-tries to fit as many people into a vehicle as he can during road trips, not because he really needs to (his family could easily afford a larger vehicle or even just a rental for the day), but because he views it as a challenge.
-His current high score is 10 people in a four-door sedan - himself in the drivers’s seat, Hannah and Sam sharing the passenger seat, Beth jammed between the front seats with the shifter knob between her legs, Matt, Mike and Chris in the back with Jess and Emily lying across them. Ashley had to ride in the trunk (she was the only one small enough to fit in there). The car could barely hit 25mph because of all the weight holding it down
-once shot a nerf dart into the window of another moving vehicle while he was driving. considers this one of his greatest achievements
-discovered that if you hit traffic barrels on the highway every other driver within a mile radius will stay away from you. now makes a point of hitting barrels and cones during high traffic so everyone will assume he’s drunk and get out of his way
-thinks ordering a Big Mac at Burger King is the pinnacle of comedy
-went through a phase with Jess where they would buy 5-10 balloons at a time then spend the next few hours inhaling helium and making prank phone calls. Emily and Chris would stand by in embarrassment as their best friends dissolved into fits of hysterical, squeaky laughter
-part of the youtube prank fandom
-once went on zazzle, bought a bunch of weird specific shirt designs for events the dawn squad wasn’t a part of that say things like “Kristin’s baby shower, March 15th 2013” and “Smith Family Reunion 2010” and gave them to everyone as Christmas gifts
Those words would haunt her for the rest of her life. She was sure of it. Two. Motherfucking. A. M.
“Actually I took your turn last night because you were on Kol duty so its your turn.” Caroline mumbled into her pillow, shifting slightly away from him.
“That was out of the goodness of your heart. This is not a negotiation, its your turn.”
“Klaus its 2 in the morning."
"Yes I’m aware.” She was gonna rip his voice box out, she swore to god she would do it.
“Good. Then you know I need to sleep. So you do it Mr. Manly Man.” She grinned into her pillow, still not able to peel her eyes open.
“Mmmm, but you’re the one that wanted the little rascal in the first place, so darling,” Her eyes flung open when she felt the weight of him roll onto her, his mouth right next to her ear as his hand squeezed her hit. “Its your turn.” With that he rolled back over, pulling the blankets over his bare torso.
“Fuck you.” Caroline spat, swinging her legs off the bed and marching out of their room down the hall, shoving the other door open and walking into the dark room. “Hello little buggy,” She said with a wide smile, reaching into the crib where her son was crying–Did she say crying? Because it was more like one of those bomb sirens. “What’s got you all bothered huh?” She raised him up a little and sniffed his diaper, finding it clean and sighing before positioning him in her arms and moving to sit back in the rocking chair.
“You know you should have done this tomorrow, its your dad’s job to get you quiet tomorrow. Although I think he compels you to only act up when I’m on duty.” Castro let out a small little blubbery laugh as his fists grabbed Caroline’s curls and she smiled. “But daddy knows that if he compels you then I get to chop off some very useful parts of his anatomy.” Another giggle. “Yes he does.” Caroline kissed her son’s forehead and held him close to her chest.
“Da,” She smiled at the boy’s attempt at talking as she pulled him closer.
When Klaus woke up there was a sheer second of panic when he didn’t find Caroline next to him and immediately he shot out of bed and across the hall, throwing the door open and causing his son’s eyes to open wide at him before raising his little fists and waving excitedly.
Caroline was passed out in the chair, her arms still tight around little Castro and Klaus smiled as their son pulled on a strand of her hair, trying to wake her. Caroline only groaned in response and Klaus stepped forward, picking the boy up and feeling his hands go immediately to the necklaces his father wore.
“How should we wake up mama? Hm?” Klaus whispered, bouncing Castro slightly as they both looked at Caroline, “Or should we just let her sleep.”
“Shut up.” Her tired voice spoke up as Caroline’s eyes fluttered open. “How long was I out?”
“How would I know? I was asleep in our nice warm bed.” He grinned at her and Caroline let out a long breath.
“I hate you.”
“You love me.” Klaus turned towards the little boy in his arms, “She loves me,” He said with a grin as Caroline stood up, whacking the back of her husband’s head as she stomped out of the room, grumbling something about going back to bed. Once she was out of earshot and Castro was back to blubbering out his little nonsense words Klaus grinned at him. “She loves me. Don’t you worry mate.” He said with a grin, moving out of the room to go and make his beautiful wife a mouthwatering breakfast.
