naming my first born after you

I’m posting this at 12am so nobody sees it

This AU got so dark so fast. 

Kwami swap with Papillon!Adrien (Greyling) and Chat!Hawkmoth (Tuxedo Cat). 

By some misfortune of the universe, Gabe ends up with the Cat Noir miraculous in the first place and Ladybug, dispensed as the yin to his yang, is tasked with getting it back. Naturally, he wants her miraculous too and wreaks havoc all across paris to lure her out. He is ruthless with cataclysm. Ladybug has to grow up a lot quicker to handle a guy with the power of destruction trying to kill her, so Mari ends up being a lot more serious but very in control of her double life.

Master Fu recognizes that she’s in over her head when one day Tuxedo Cat comes out to raise hell and Adrien, a civilian currently sneaking out to go to school, has to step in and help. Fu sees his potential and gives Nooroo to him. Gabe being Tux is like “Shit I put my son in danger” and puts Adrien on basically full throttle house arrest. No matter! The butterfly brooch holder is a distance fighter anyhow.  

Greyling is born. Kid, you are not subtle with your names. Anyway, the akumas now sort of work in reverse: whenever Tux attacks, Greyling asks civilians for their help sending him back to lick his wounds/better yet, get his miraculous.

And the important stuff: the love square. Ladybug, though grateful for the thought, is not a fan of Adrien risking his life to help her that first time, but after that doesn’t have much contact with him. Marinette and Adrien don’t interact much either to begin with. Adrien still obviously loves Ladybug (so selfless, brave, and kind). The mutually reciprocated ship is Greydybug: Ladybug slowly begins to fall in love with whoever keeps sending help to her when Tux attacks though she knows very little about him. Unfortunately, in this au, a reveal is a death sentence, frustrating any attempts at them actually getting together. 

Adrien has a lot less of a facade in this au since his dad is even more distant. He sometimes acts out in non-malicious ways to try to get attention and ends up anonymously forging a camaraderie with Mari. Since he’s more in tune with his emotions, Greyling sometimes accidentally ends up possessing his heroes in his desperate desire to help ladybug (which we see about to happen here). He’s good at it but is constantly horrified when his transformation drops and he realizes who he is again.


Anyway I fully support Papillon!Adrien and yall should too.

Serial killer fandom: *fetishizes serial killers. Spends their day blogging about serial killers. Posts sexy photo edits of serial killers. Ships one serial killer with another serial killer. Names their first born child after their favorite serial killer*

*racially motivated serial killer Dylan Roof is sentenced to death*

Serial killer fandom: I am sobbing… my hands are shaking as I type this,, killing in all forms is WRONG and the fact that people would CELEBRATE this just makes me absolutely SICK… it’s WRONG people!! When will you learn that violence is WRONG!!

Day 01
I was born with the golden sun in my heart and the waves of the ocean between my ribs. My father was not gentle nor kind but he brought me to a garden, something rare and beautiful. There lived someone else already. His name was Adam and when he smiled, the sun was put to shame. I was in love before I realized what love even is.

Day 04
Adam gave me flowers and told me how beautiful I am. He kissed my cheeks and kept me warm at night.

Day 05
Adam put a hand between my legs and touched me. It felt good at first, but then it hurt. Adam didn’t stop.

Day 06
I wanted to tell my father, but I felt dirty and spent. That night I tasted tears for the first time. It’s a cruel taste.

Day 38
I told my father about what Adam did. He said ‘You were made to serve him. He is made in my own image. There is nothing wrong in what Adam did. You wanted it, don’t you?’ No I didn’t. But my father didn’t even listen to me.

Day 42
Adam does it all the time. The touching. Sometimes he pushes me down and takes greedily what he wants. I close my eyes and let it happen. I was born to serve him after all.

Day 103
I listened to the way my name sounds in Adam’s mouth. Servant. Slave. Brainless. Stupid. I am neither of these things.

Day 104
I will prove him wrong.

Day 301
I was not born to serve anyone than myself.

Day 332
My father made men in his own image. But he included his cruelty in me. His rage. The taste of dirt and blood behind my teeth. God is not on my lips anymore. I burn myself to the ground and rise shaking outside the garden.

Day 895
All the blood has buried my name.

So I swear to fucking god, I LOVE Avatar: the Last Airbender but… Agh! They did the most cliche thing in serpents pass! So they’re trying to get the pregnant lady, her husband and her apparently mute sister/aunt/friend/whatever make it across serpents pass Abe to Ba Sing Se. And they make it across serpents pass and the pregnant lady goes into labor. Katara delivers the baby like a fucking badass and the parents are trying to decide on a name for the little girl.

They’re fucking going on about: “I want our daughter’s name to be unique, I want it to mean something”

Oh my fucking god, please don’t name your daughter Hope! That’s literally the highlight of post apocalyptic cliches. Little girl is born right after the apocalypse! Let’s name her Hope to remind us to be hopeful for the next 20 years as we raise our daughter in a fucking wasteland! Do you know how many little girls will be named Hope in the first year of the apocalypse?!?!

And I’m thinking “no, they’re not going to do that! That’s not how they name their characters. They don’t use western names for their characters”

But then Aang goes on this stupid fucking speech about how he’s going through a hard time since Appa went missing and how their newborn daughter gave him hope. So what do they fucking do?! They name her Hope!!

I get it! There are no western names in this show, so within this universe Hope would be new and unusual but as far as a writing-story-line perspective goes, no matter how unusual your characters’ names are, it’s still going to be cliche if you name a baby Hope during a time of serious conflict and turmoil. Agh!

Tl,dr: Avatar: the Last Airbender did a cliche thing and I’m pissed about it. Don’t name your characters Hope if you’re trying to be meaningful somehow. It doesn’t work

anonymous asked:

having a daughter with cole would include?

i’m gonna try a new layout for headcanons, so i’ll be doing it right here on the ask. send some in!

• ok but first off let’s talk about cole finding out that you’re pregnant in the first place

• he would laugh it off and then see how dead serious you were, and then he’d stop laughing

• “holy shit”

• cole would lowkey freak out and just nod once or twice

• and then he’d start grinning and laughing and happy crying with you and you two would hug and embrace and just be surrounded by love and happiness

• he would spoil you your entire pregnancy

• “what if we named her jellybean??” “oh hell no cole, i am not naming my daughter after your fictional character’s little sister.”

• once your daughter was born he would freak out over every little thing

• smudge on the fridge? he would bring out every little disinfecting product you can find on planet earth.

• when she woke up in the middle of the night he’d force you to stay asleep and take care of her

• he would rock her and hum a little and she’d be back asleep in no time.

• he’d freak out when she went to preschool

• then he’d freak out more in kindergarten

• he’d be The Cool Dad™ because he’s cole sprouse for goodness sake.

• she’d grow up on the suite life of zach and cody and suite life on deck, and then act like her father and uncle dylan all day

• as she got older she would begin to watch riverdale (who wouldn’t?) and then say “why didn’t you name em jellybean?” and cole would give you this look and you’d roll your eyes and walk away because your daughter and husband would always gang up on you like that

• and when she gets her first period he’d freak out more than the first day of kindergarten

• let’s not talk about the sex talk because he’d be all over the place

• and let’s not get started on her dating. he’d kill everyone saying “i’m on riverdale and i’ll kill you like [SPOILER] clifford killed his son!” to all the boys/girls your daughter took interest in

• but honestly cole would make such a good dad ugh

Inspirational Roleplaying and Creative Storytelling...

A Game where the Player is not the main character, but actually a Sentient Magic Item.

Each Player begins as a Sentient or Cursed Magical Item, and they themselves Roleplay the voices of these magic items.

They see themselves, as Magic Items, swap hands 1000 times over. 

From being the weapon to strike down a mighty beast, so a simple decoration on the walls of a noble house.

This story is told over generations, and while the Player Roleplays their Magic Item, you, as the GM, actually get to play the characters who wield these sometimes legendary Magical Items…

But the Players are able to influence the decisions of the GM, who plays the user of these Magic Items.

Here’s an Example…

You were crafted in the great black dwarven mountains that touched the sky. You were forged in the fires of the mountain, by the great blacksmith himself, Bolgrimm.

You never left his hand, though you were crafted for a noble, you were made by Bolgrimm, and you stayed in his hands till the day of his death.

You were the tool he used to defend his mountain with the militia he held as family.

You watched him fall in love, raise a family, a loving husband and a caring father to his kin.

But that was taken away by his death at the hands of this dwarven noble…

The noble raided Bolgrimm’s homestead, and you fought with him until he drew his last breath…

You had lost your true wielder at the hands of this… unworthy pretender…

And so rage overtook you. You cursed the young noble’s bloodline to feel the burning pain that Bolgrimm felt as you fell from his hands and into the hands of this boy who calls himself a dwarven man…

You stayed on the walls of his home, seen a hundred kin of his bloodline struck down by your burning curse…

Until his youngest kin stole you away one autumn night, and knew of his great grandfather’s acquirement of your uses.

“I hope to be worthy of your power, for I know I am cursed of blood and bone, but if I shall die protecting the children of my homeland, then I hope to protect them with you by my hand.”

The boy’s words struck true to your iron, dwarven-forged heart.

And you stayed with the boy, until his own children were born…

The name of his first child… Bolgrimm…

Named after the man who made you, this boy deserved no judgement, only the power that you, a simple, old, iron warhammer, forged almost a century ago, could give him…

So that he may rise to power, not by strength, but by his honesty and pure of heart…

What she really means: The Fact that harry made His daughters middle name Luna makes me so fucking happy but why THE FUCK did he make Albus’s middle name severus like wtf bro that greasy haired asshole hated you and would have gladly allowed voldemort to kill you and your Dad for the sake of keeping your mom around??

Bird Baby was originally just a throwaway character Greg and I put into the ‘Outbreak’ boards as a joke for our coworkers. There was no way the executives were going to approve of one of the main characters giving birth to a gross, dumpy half-bird abomination of nature, so we just threw him in there without putting any effort in.

Like, if you want an example of how much thought went into Bird Baby, his name is ‘Bird Baby’. 

In the first couple drafts, he does not survive the episode. 

But after the pitch…

And thus, an icon was born.

i wanna do a plot like ‘life as we know it’, where two exes who now hate each other have to raise their dead best friends’ baby together because the parents named them joint guardians. They suck at parenting at first, and they hate each other, and they have to live in the same house cuz it’s easier and one of them constantly flirts with the hot girl/guy next door and the other gets all jealous and ugh

20 Questions ft. Solangelo

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12369818/1/20-Questions

I decided to write a little fanfic on how those three days of bed rest began for Nico & Will just after Heroes of Olympus ended. I love those boys so here we are. Hope you all enjoy it. Feel free to follow me here and even on Fanfic

“This is seriously the most boredom I have felt in under two hours,” Nico groaned, shifting again in the bed. “Why did I agree to three days of bed rest?”

“Because I wasn’t asking,” Will responded. “So play this game with me then. Maybe it’ll help.”

Nico let out a sigh from his spot in the cot a bit away. “Fine. What game?”

Will looked over in surprise and smiled faintly. He went to the edge of the bed where the son of Hades reclined and settled in with the bandages and scissors he was working with.

“20 Questions, but my way.”

“I don’t even know what regular 20 questions is,” Nico grumbled as he shifted his feet away from Will. “But sure, whatever.”

“Well, I’ll ask you a question and you have to answer. Then, you can ask  me, and so on for the next 20 questions,” Will explained as he clipped off some squares of gauze.

Nico hesitantly nodded. “Okay. You ask first then?”

Will nodded and looked up as he spoke his first question. “What’s your favorite color, and you can’t say black.”

Nico frowned. “Then… blue.”

Will raised a golden eyebrow then nodded. “Okay. Your turn.”

anonymous asked:

I got so excited seeing your blog that is dedicated to todoroki! 😆 May I request a cute, fluffy scenario where todoroki and s/o are talking to each other at his room then s/o suddenly felt sleepy and laid her head on his shoulder? Good luck on your blog btw! :)

Hello! I had written this before, but… somehow I managed to delete my work… So I had to start all over again. Well, I guess the world wanted me to write something better. Hopefully it is haha. Thank you for your request, it was superb cute ^^ also, I apologize for not writing in a while, I had writers block, and then this happened and I couldn’t help but feeling empty, and sad, and dumb XD anyway, enjoyyy…

Also, I am Sorry if this seems too short, tell me if you want these to be longer please!

______________________________

Fridays kind of became movie nights with Todoroki. You don’t know when your casual hang outs turned into this new tradition, but they did.
Every so often you would pick out a movie and watch it, sometimes, when the movie was too boring you would just talk your whole way through it. Or even complain about it, and that, was more fun than any movie itself.

This time was not an exception. It was Todoroki’s turn to play host and both of you were laying lazily in his bed next to each other, Todoroki bowl of popcorn in hand, and with the lights off. Not to mention it was quite late. Probably around 12 a.m., so it was already dark outside.

You couldn’t remember the title of the movie you were watching, you think it was a romantic comedy or something?
Anyway, the movie had a terrible plot, plain characters, and was altogether very bad.

“What is he- he should just tell her already. Come on!” exclaimed -a probably too annoyed- Todoroki. With these get-togethers you had gotten to meet a new side of him, one that you certainly didn’t know existed. I mean, who could have guessed he could get so worked up about a movie? It just seemed very surprising, yet cute to you.

“Yeah, it’s pretty obvious he’s going to end up with the other girl”

“Right? Just get it over already!” He said while taking a single popcorn flake to his mouth. “Want some?” Todoroki asked, while offering you the bowl, but still not taking his eyes off the screen.

You took a few and piled them up in your hand. Your eye lids were begging to get heavy as the movie progressed, yet not enough for you to fall asleep.

After what seemed like years, the film was finally over. The main guy got over the girl he was pursuing at the start and confessed to the one he had gotten to love throughout the whole thing. It was quite a simple plot, and the end was very predictable, nevertheless you shared a lot of laughs with Todoroki and ranted together until it was done.

“This kind of reminds me of us.” Todoroki’s whisper relaxed you, only making it more difficult to keep your eyes open.

“How so?” You asked back slowly. You had begun to get a bit of a sore throat, therefore your voice sounding gravelly.

“Well, at first I was so fixed on hating a side of myself that I couldn’t change, it’s not a girl, but it’s the same idea. Wanting something that I couldn’t have, getting rid of that part of me. I would never achieve my goals in the future if I kept on despising that with what I was born with.” At this point you were having an inner battle with yourself, keeping awake while Todoroki’s voice offered comfort. “ and I could never have done that without you, [name]. It was a long time after I gathered the courage to tell you how I felt. But now that we are together, I wouldn’t change a thing.” He kept saying nice words to you with such happiness, that before you knew it, your head was resting on his left shoulder, eyes closed. You could feel him stiffen under your touch, he was probably surprised, since physical affection wasn’t really your thing. A few seconds later, however, his head was resting on yours.

“Goodnight [name]“

“Goodnight Shouto”

anonymous asked:

Is there any way to make a plot twist in a way where it doesn't seem like it came out of nowhere? That's my biggest problem, people always tell me that my plot twists feel weird and unnatural.

Hi!

There definitely is – foreshadow. Drop subtle but clear hints about what’s coming all throughout the novel, so that when your readers look back it will be clear that those hints indicated your plot twist.

As an example, I’ll use The Shining by Stephen King (one of my favorite books ever). *SPOILER ALERT!*

Danny Torrance, the protagonist, is a five-year-old with telepathic powers. He has a visitor (his parents call it his imaginary friend, but it’s not) named Tony who sometimes shows him things: Tony once showed him where to find a trunk containing his father’s manuscripts; Tony also shows him horrible things happening in the hotel in which his family will be spending the winter (up in the mountains of Colorado, so they’ll be snowed in). After Danny has a semi-catatonic episode, his parents take him for a medical checkup, just to be sure of his health before they’re snowed in for three months.

The pediatrician, of course, speaks to Danny during/after his checkup, and acts somewhat as a psychiatrist; he then speaks to his parents about his diagnosis (which is nothing serious – only stress). His opinion on Tony is that he was created to deal with hard times (moving, and Danny’s parents considering divorce), and Danny no longer needs Tony, because the family is rebounding; however, Tony isn’t leaving easily, hence the nightmares Danny complains of, and the fainting spell he had. Then the pediatrician says to Mr. and Mrs. Torrance something along the lines of “And of course, you know why he’s named Tony and not Michael or Greg”, and during my first time reading, I didn’t understand what he meant. After the plot twist, it clicked.

Also, it is mentioned that Danny was born with a caul over his face, which superstition says signifies a child gifted with the second sight (in other words, the child will be able to see the future). At the time, this – and what it implies – seems like a secondary detail. Again, at the plot twist it is clear that it actually means more.

The plot twist occurs during Tony’s last visit, which takes place during the novel’s climax. During his last powow with Danny, he comes closer, into Danny’s field of vision – Danny has never seen Tony’s face before, so this is a significant event. Tony looks just like Danny, but older – still young, but maybe 11 instead of 5. Then, in the prose, Stephen King writes Danny’s full name, middle name included, which doesn’t happen at any other place in the novel: his full name is Daniel Anthony Torrance, or in other terms, Danny “Tony” Torrance. The conclusion drawn from this is that Tony is actually Danny from the future, and that Danny has both telepathy and second sight.

This plot twist grows roots throughout the book: how Danny never sees Tony’s face, how Danny was born with something said to promise the second sight, the psychiatrist’s comment on Tony’s name. Basically, Stephen King lays everything on the table without giving us the one detail everything stems from – if it was drawn as a chart, all these small details would surround one big box in the middle, and until the plot twist, that big box would be blank. After the plot twist, that box would be filled in with TONY IS AN OLDER VERSION OF DANNY AND DANNY HAS PRECOGNITIVE VISIONS. That’s what you need to do: lay everything out for the reader except the actual plot twist itself.

I hope this was helpful! If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask! - @authors-haven

Newcomers Pt 28

“Gone? All of them?” Jenkins asked looking over the holographic map.

“Yes, all Benemar forces have retreated to Potellan and our scouts met no challenge all the way there” Cho replied pointing to points on the map.

“They have been fighting tooth and nail over that territory for months, why pull back now?” Cathy asked,

“They know we are coming, they only held the line at these points to stop us having too much free rein” Jenkins said.

“How could they know our attack is imminent?”

“A smart commander could guess as much” Jenkins said “He knew we would have to move on the city eventually and after that bombing raid he has forced us to attack sooner than we intended. That was likely his intent of that assault, he wants us to attack on his terms”

“It also means that the city has now been reinforced with a large number of enemy veteran forces” Cho pointed out.

“Which is going to make the whole fight for the city more fun” Cathy said pulling out a chocolate bar. The quizzing looks from the other two made her explain. “Sorry I have been craving these things like mad lately”

“Okay then” Cho said turning back to the map “So when do we leave for Potellan?”

“Well the new Chieftain’s Crowning is in a few days and we are expecting Williams and his men to reinforce us a few days after that. During that time we will hand over all security duties to the Benemar, how is their training going by the way?” Jenkins asked Cathy.

“It’s going well, they learned how to use our rifles and guns pretty quickly and we have given them a few tanks and armoured transports. By the time we leave they should no longer be considered a militia but an actual fighting force”

“As long as they support the new Chieftain our flank should be secure” Cho stated.

“Don’t underestimate the kid” Cathy pointed out “He may be young but he has a way with words, he seems to grasp politics as well. Did you hear all the elders who he was chosen over have been given high offices in his court?”

“Is that wise?” Cho asked.

“It’s smart” Jenkins said “Keep those who are likely to oppose him close by where he can keep an eye on them all while giving them some sort of power that they wanted”

Cho smiled “I can see why Hopkins spoke highly of this kid but that is still the problem, he is a kid”

“And that is why he will be underestimated” Jenkins smiled.

“I have heard that you have been asked to be the one to crown him?” Cathy asked Jenkins.

“Yes he believes it will be symbolic, we took power from the Benemar and deposed the previous Chieftain and we are now handing it back to the Benemar in the form of a new Chieftain”

“One they chose” Cho stated “A powerful symbol”

“Let us hope the power does not go to his head”


Ceran carried Taleena out of her home with his bodyguard waiting for him and a large crowed had gathered having spotted the young Chieftain entering a seemingly unknown persons house. A cheer erupted as he emerged with her and he held her higher as if to show her off to the crowed as the flashes of many lights signalled camera flashes to immortalize the moment. So many that Taleena was nearly blinded and wonder how Ceran was still managing to see where he was going. His bodyguard quickly surrounded him and parted the crowed so Ceran could make his way through them. His home may be some way away but he was determined to make the journey. She had her arms wrapped around his neck and thought to herself that he was stronger than he looked then remembered he had told her he was a salt farmer growing up. A small parade had begun to follow them with the young men shouting their approval and even some of the girls that Taleena had met while waiting to meet him calling out their congratulations. But what made her really satisfied was when they passed a few of the more wealthier and high ranking girls who had on more than one occasion while waiting to meet Ceran made horrible remarks on how she did not deserve to be there. Well now it was her that the Chieftain was carrying home in his arms not them and the looks on their faces made her laugh.

Looking up at him their eyes met for a few moments and he smiled at her, she loved that smile, it was so, genuine. Instinctively she placed a soft kiss on his lips and pulled away embarrassed but he only laughed. He stopped briefly to reaffirm his grasp on her and stop her from slipping from his arms and began walking again, only then did she notice he was sweating. He had been carrying her for some time now.

“I can walk now if you want me to?”

“No, tradition says I have to carry you all the way home otherwise it’s a bad omen”

“I thought you weren’t superstitious?”

“I’m not, this just seems like the right thing to do though”

He breathed heavily as the muscles in his arms begged for release. “Although I will say, now I know why it’s customary to carrying you over the shoulder, that way is easier over long distances” he was almost panting now.

“We can switch to that way if you want”

“No, I said I’ll do it this way and this is the way I’ll do it”

She felt him struggling to carry her the whole way, she did not consider herself heavy but carry any weight for a length of time and it will feel like it weighs a ton.

“Although” he said “There is a water flask at my left hip, could you get it for me”

She wrapped her arm behind herself and felt for his hip to find the flask.

“Whoa, left a bit” he said suddenly.

“Oops better leave those intact for the wedding night” she laughed as she grabbed the flask and put it to his lips to drink.

Finally they arrived at his home, they had not moved into the Chieftain’s tower yet as he was not their Chief till the Crowning. He had not taken two steps through the front door when he put her down and almost collapsed on the floor.

“Are you all right?” she asked kneeling by his side.

“I’ll be okay” he panted looking up at her smiling, he took her hand and squeezed it tight. Looking up he saw his family were standing in the hallway.

“Mother, Father, Selan, this is Taleena”

His mother rushed forward and pulled her to her feet and embraced her “Welcome to our home, or your home as well now”

“I feel sorry for you, you have no idea what my brother is really like” Selan joked.

His father though stood over his son who was still laying on the floor exhausted.

“You okay?” he asked.

“I should have put her over my shoulder”

“Yes…you should have. I did when I kidnapped your mother”

“What? Is that true?”

His father didn’t answer and walked off.

“Father? No you can’t say that and just walk away!”

He got up and ran after him but stopped at his mother. “Mother, did father kidnap you?

She said nothing and looked to her husband who was sitting on the sofa grinning.

“I’ll let him tell you the story”

Ceran looked at them both shocked and confused and Taleena laughed at her future husbands confusion.

“Right, we need to get you measured for your dress for the Crowning” his mother suddenly to Taleena.

“Mother I think maybe they would like to spend some time together?” Selan pointed out.

“Nonsense they can’t do that until the wedding night!” Oolana said pushing Taleena into another room.

“Mother that is a very old tradition they don’t need to be virgins any more”

“Shut up, if he is going to be Chief then he needs to follow these traditions”

“But mother can’t we at least-” Ceran started.

“NO!” Oolana shouted pulling Selan inside and slamming the door.

“Oh okay then” Ceran said standing in front of the door “We’ll talk later Taleena

“Okay!” came her response.

He looked at his father who was now drinking ale with a small grin on his face. “You have no idea what is in store for you do you?”

“I err….no” he said joining his father on the sofa and was handed a can of ale by him.

“Neither did I when I grabbed your mother”

Ceran looked at his father who gestured to drink, he did and the taste of the ale went right through his head making him shiver.

“You’ll get used to the taste, and trust me you will need it”

“Did you really kidnap mother?”

“Kidnap is not what it was called back then, you know the old ways? Well in our town they did not fade very quickly nor any where else in the wastelands. Quite often the only sure way to get a wife was to take one. Your mother was promised to another and I had always had my eye on her, we had spoken a few times but not at any great length. But I knew, I knew what her life would be like if she married that bastard”

“Who was he?”

“It doesn’t matter, what does matter that during their wedding I drove my truck straight into his home and disrupted the ceremony and killed him with my farming tools. Not bad I think considering he was armed with a blade. Once that was done I proclaimed she was to be mine swung her over my shoulder and went home. I totalled the truck so I couldn’t drive and as you know it’s part of the custom that you walk home”

Ceran looked up at his father shocked, he had never asked how they met and of all the stories he expected to hear this was not among them.

“Did…did mother even want you to take her?” he asked.

“You kidding!? She asked me to mount her there and then the moment we got through the door, if my father wasn’t there I probably would have, luckily that old bastard died soon after the wedding”

They sat in silence, Ceran smiled though as this was the first time he and his father had sat and spoken like this. In the past when he was a creten his father would dote on his brothers and sister and simply yell at him to go away.

“Why did you name me Creten?”

His father did not answer, in fact he did not react at all and just stared ahead as if seeing the very moment he gave his son that name.

“You were born…sickly” he finally said “You were small and had the features of a breeder, unfitting for a male”

Ceran said nothing.

“On your first birthday when it was clear you were not like your brothers, I named you Creten. For I did not want you”

In Benemar culture children are not named until their first birthday as their names often carry meaning that they earn or show signs they will have during that year.

His father looked at him “I am happy, that you no longer carry that name, Ceran”

Ceran couldn’t help but have tears fill his eyes “Father” he whispered throwing his arms around his fathers neck and holding tight.

“I am proud to call you my son, and my Chieftain”

Who are you?

My name is Lawrence and I’m a 27 year old, first generation Filipino-American. In my spare time I like to play games, draw, hike, explore cities, eat out, and take pictures with my phone.

Where are you from?

I was born and raised in the Bay Area. (Concord -> San Jose -> San Francisco)

What do you do?

I’m a toy designer for an eco-friendly toy company called, Green Toys.

I got into it after graduating with a degree in Industrial Design from SJSU. I originally thought that I wanted to do something in the medical field, but I stopped that midway through my third year in college. Even though it took a while, I’m happy with where I am now.

What are you passionate about?

Currently, I’ve been really involved in listening to what’s going on out in the world and finding my voice. I think it’s really important to stick together as a community to fight and protect each other, but I also think it’s important to do your research before jumping in.

In general, I love critiquing art/design, but not in a condescending way. I just love learning about the stories behind the design or art piece. It’s really inspiring to see people doing things that they’re passionate about.

What is your dream job (real or fantasy)?

I want to build my own streetwear brand. Maybe start with cool backpacks and bags and see where I go from there. I loved my soft goods class in college, but I haven’t gotten around to making a bag in a while. I really have an itch to create.

If you could change the world with one idea, what would it be?

I think it’s important to be socially conscious. If people were more aware, we would be in a better place. We often overlook the things we can’t see.
