oh god really

Poll time:

Should I post my dissertation here (assuming I can find it)?

Caveat: It’s shitty as hell. I did not get a good mark on it. It was too short. I was depressed and burnt out when I wrote it. It’s not especially scholarly. I haven’t actually read it since I finished it in 2002, because I don’t need to cringe that much. But … it is about the Knights Templar. Who doesn’t love some Templars (besides King Phillip IV of France lol)?

jopper hcs: who makes the best breakfast? who hogs the blankets? who kills the spider? who says "i'm sorry" first?

This is gonna be so damn hard I’M LOVING THIS. Okay. So.

Who makes the best breakfast?
Neither Joyce nor Hopper are the best of cooks, but they are both people who enjoy taking care of the people they love: Joyce does all she can for her kids, but sometimes her meals really don’t taste good, and that’s okay, too, as long as there’s love in what you do; Hopper has probably been a better cook in the past (and generally has been better at taking care of himself and his life before his daughter died), but he has a love for food and I think that if he wants to impress (people and himself) he can make really creative (okay maybe excessively fatty too) meals, so I’d say Hopper is the one who makes the best (creative) breakfast! And brings it to Joyce while still being in bed because he’s a good husband okay. And they spend Sunday mornings making breakfast all together because they’re a super happy family.

Who hogs the blanket?
They both have trouble sleeping, so most nights, especially if it’s still not too long after the events of 1984, they don’t really manage to sleep more than 2 or 3 hours without waking up, and their anxiety still manifests in the way they sleep, too, keeping them agitated even when asleep, distanced from each other’s bodies; during those nights they both hog the blanket, scattering it all around the place and ending up making it fall on the floor.
During those really quite, peaceful nights, though, after they have just had a big, satisfying dinner with the kids and have spent the night talking softly under the covers, whispering sweet nothings on each other’s mouths and spending hours feeling the warmth of each other’s skin, they manage to sleep really soundly. And during those nights, they sleep closer to each other, less troubled by nightmares or bad thoughts. Hopper, being the bigger guy, would sometimes wake up during the night finding Joyce only half covered, so he would bring the blanket over her body, make sure that she’s warm enough, and fall back to sleep.


Who kills the spider?
Oh damn, that’s a good one. Hopper would assume he’d be the one that would have to kill it, but he’s not actually surprised when, before even asking or getting up to do it, he sees Joyce already holding a shoe up in the air and about to smash it. (Alternative, animal cruelty free version: she gently carries the spider out of the house door.)


Who says “I’m sorry” first?
I feel like Joyce, being a stubborn and even prideful person maybe, has more difficulties saying sorry. Hopper has learned from his mistakes in the past, but saying sorry doesn’t always come easy, so I think in that sense they will both make each other better people, learning from one another and growing together as people and as a couple.

Dude. Dude, I know. Here’s some great stuff about Keith that fandom can no longer deny:

  • when asked to describe himself he first comes up blank
  • no mentions of his talents whatsoever?? he’s not arrogant
  • in fact he has no trouble admitting that he’s bad at something
  • keeps saying that he pilots the black lion but refuses to say that he’s the black paladin
  • he thinks that being part Galra might be why he has always been bad at connecting with people 
  • automatically plays around with his knife when the Galra part gets mentioned
  • THE STUPID CHEER FROM S1 IS STILL ON HIS MIND
  • is very straightforward and wants to avoid complicated stuff as much as possible
  • apologized twice for blowing up; he’s self-conscious about his temper
  • [voice crack] “I don’t know why I’m that way”
  • is aware of his abandonment issues
  • is also aware that he puts some walls up
  • tries to compose himself by rubbing his fingers together
  • knows when he is about to cry and promised himself not to do it ((in front of the camera/a potential audience at least))

HE’S. SO GREAT. SO SO GREAT. He’s much more self-aware than fandom gives him credit for. I LOVE HIM SO MUCH ;A;

Victuuri Week Day 3: Goblin AU

in which Viktor is this 937-year-old goblin who’s looking for his bride and Yuuri is fated to his bride and can see ghosts:


It was the strangest kind of attraction.

Even Yuuri, with his rather dull intuitive perception, had been very much cognizant – at that precise moment of meeting the stranger’s gaze – of the sudden electrifying chemistry between them, transpiring ever so briefly yet imparting a long-lasting effect on his consciousness.

It felt to him as though the world around him was so abruptly thrust into an eternity of quietude, blurred by the hollowness of nonexistence, except for the figure of the man who captivated his undiluted attention, a defined entity against the illegible backdrop, like a distinctive gleam of light in a vacuum of disorienting darkness.
