My entire takeaway from Ghostbusters 101 #3 is that Holtzmann has roommates, she’s a bad roommate, she sleeps like Sid from Toy Story, and she sleeps IN her jumpsuit and goggles, but takes off her necklace. Look at this beautiful garbage child. 👌✨

Strelok art doll; 40cm tall, various polyester fabrics, genuine leather, felt, metal elements and a true labour of love <3
+I’ve messed up the paint job twice but now he cool; I’m especially happy with the way the scars on his face turned out +more natural-looking irises (painting darked eyed characters is more difficult than I’ve suspected…) +painted nails (after sewing his boots my hands look like No Man’s Land, but Strelok is allright in that department :v) +fully functional backpack, pouches, hood +removable gasmask, vest, backpack, belt, boots, bracelet & a small chatelaine for good luck^^ +8 articulation points +genuine leather elements (them boots…)
Thanks to the s.t.a.l.k.e.r. community, followers and friends for cheering me on with this project; consider yourselves godmothers and godfathers of this lovely Zone Boy!
I’ve re-watched this scene millions of time and it still turns me into mush each time. I think everyone is aware that this is my favourite ever Call The Midwife scene, the amount of times I bang on about it 💛
some of my chuck & jimmy childhood headcanons that no one asked for
(okay @kiraalexander mentioned a passing interest in them and i thought this might be too dorky for my main haller/egina blog)
Chuck is 9 years older than Jimmy.
When Jimmy was first born Chuck was very agitated, used to being the doted-on only child, but within weeks he adored him, wanted to hold him all the time and fiercely protect him against the world.
He was forced to babysit Jimmy for free until he went to college. Jimmy broke and bit things a lot.
As soon as Jimmy was 6 or 7, and he stopped blindly obeying him, Chuck found him irritating again and lost substantial interest in their relationship.
They were raised Catholic, and at 15 Jimmy deliberately picked someone else to be his confirmation sponsor (which is almost always your older sibling if you have one) because he was pissed at Chuck about something and knew being boxed out of such tradition and ceremony would make Chuck furious.
Chuck walked him to elementary school every day and Jimmy would constantly wriggle out of his grip, run off, and try to escape.
Jimmy constantly found excuses to hang out in Chuck’s room growing up and when he was home from college - thunderstorm, bad dream, buy me beer - which Chuck always saw through but allowed. He liked to be needed.
Jimmy wanted to go to Georgetown (“just like Chuck!”) as a kid, and kept the sweatshirt Chuck gave him for Christmas a long, long time after that dream died.
Chuck is the one who taught Jimmy how to read.
When Chuck graduated high school Jimmy, aged 9, went ballistic and jumped around and screamed and generally made a scene in the audience. Their mother thought it was adorable. Chuck did not.
Chuck started having panic attacks when he was 12. Jimmy was too young to understand what was happening but he’d bring Chuck random pieces of fruit or make him drawings in an attempt to stop them.
Jimmy dated a lot of people in high school. Chuck was far more focused on his studies. Whenever Jimmy tried to talk about sex with him he got judgey and freaked out and hung up on him.
The day of their father’s funeral was the day Chuck decided Jimmy was not to be trusted.
They’re making out because it’s too hot to do anything else.
It’s one of those humid days where the heat can’t be escaped and the constant
mugginess sucks the energy from anything it comes in contact with. Robert has a
hand cupping Aaron’s jaw. Aaron’s palms are pressed against Robert’s chest, his
fingers making no attempt to unbutton his husband’s shirt. It’s all very chaste
by their standards. They’ve been like this for twenty minutes, even though this
kind of kissing will always end with red lips and beard rash. It’s worth it. It’s
always worth it, just to be this close. A gentle closeness that can’t always be
found in sex.
Aaron breaks the kiss with a sigh and Robert lets his lips
wander to his husband’s neck. He feels the vibration of Aaron’s words beneath
his mouth before he hears them.
‘I don’t get it.’
‘Don’t get what?’ Robert asks, only pulling himself away
from Aaron’s skin long enough to speak.
‘How you’re attracted to me.’
Robert pulls back, staring at Aaron in disbelief. Aaron’s
eyes are trained down, hidden beneath short, down-fanned lashes.
‘God, you can be so thick sometimes,’ Robert says, a laugh
at the edge of his voice. ‘I love you, and I’m so, so attracted to you.’
‘How?’ Aaron asks, his voice on the edge of breaking.
Robert presses a soft kiss to his husband’s lips. ‘How
couldn’t I be?’
Is just me who is always reluctant to call mutuals by their real names, as if it somehow feels extremely intimate?
You know, how in anime people usually call each other by their surnames or add honorifics, since addressing a person just by a plain given name is a huge leap forward in a relationship progression department…
