“He asked me right after he’d pulled me out of the lake,” Hermione muttered. […] He sort of pulled me away from the judges so they wouldn’t hear, and he said, if I wasn’t doing anything over the summer, would I like to -“ “And what did you say?” said Ron, who had picked up his pestle and was grinding “And he did say he’d never felt the same way about anyone else,” Hermione went on, going so red now that Harry could almost feel the heat coming from her.
Man but did you SEE Shiro and Lance together??? Oh my goD now that Keith said Shiro is like a brother to him this means my ship has a chance! And besides, Shiro already carried Lance last season, and Lance wanted to be on a mission with Shiro this season, and was super mad someone else was chosen-!
We talk about how much Mike must miss Eleven but we never talk about how much Nancy must miss Barb. Barb whose been Nancys best friend since elementary school and who Nancy has probably spent every Friday night with since she can remember. Barb who Nancy planned on going to college with and who exchanged secrets with her about their worries for the future. Barb who Nancy probably blames herself for her disappearance every single day. Nancy must miss Barb so much it hurts
FIRST OF ALL, the Joker was written in a way that made him so obviously a gay character, at least if you ask me, and the hero/villain relationship between Batman and the Joker was treated like they were a couple
The entire plot happens because it’s all Joker trying to make Batman acknowledge their relationship and admit there’s something special between them
Literally all of Joker’s motivation to do what he does is to make Batman think of him the same way he thinks of him
He literally “breaks up” with Batman at one part because Batman wouldn’t say “I hate you too” when Joker said “I hate you, now, you say it”.
Istg Batman made him cry like, 3 times because he kept rejecting him
Theres a really gay, sunset scene with them at the end too tho where Batman finally admits he feels the same way. As this sun is setting dramatically they have this entire “I hate you” “I hate you more” “I hate you most” “I hate you forever~” thing.
(Since its a hero/villain dynamic they say I hate you instead of I love you but it’s still said in this stupid, loving tone that murders my soul)
just good golly man.
Batman lovingly tapping Joker’s chin and saying something like “I’ll see you around” almost killed me?
Also Robin, before he knew Bruce Wayne and Batman were the same person, thought he had TWO dad’s and was super excited about it which was precious as hell
Anonymous asked me a little while ago for Squad road trip AU. If this one goes over well I might do a ToG one too. As with everything I write; it got long.
Az, Mor, Cassian and Nesta take
one car; Feyre, Rhys, Amren, Lucien and Elain take the other (Nesta wanted to
be with Elain but she and Lucien are like superglued together at the hands and
no-one trusted Lucien and Nesta together in a confined space for several hours.
Someone would have died. And Elain is pretty attached to him so…)
Someone puts Cassian in charge of
navigating. This is a mistake. They get very lost before they’ve gone ten
miles. Feyre very wisely takes over. They have a lot more success when Feyre is
in charge of directing. The Moriel/Nessian Car:
Azriel drives their car. Mor
rides shotgun. Cassian and Nesta sit in the back (Nesta basically on Cassian’s
lap the entire time. Seatbelts are for lesser mortals)
The Moriel/Nessian car is
organised because they have a music playlist. Which is a really good theory; everyone
gets one song each and then they shuffle. In practice it doesn’t exactly work
because Mor skips all the ones she doesn’t like (ie Mor skips all of Cassian’s)
and most of the trip is spent to the tune of Cassian’s dulcet tones while he
whines about the unfairness of it all, Mor snickering, Nesta rolling her eyes
and Az sighing. A lot.
Cassian thinks that it’s distinctly unfair that Mor is allowed to
put her feet up on the dash because whenever he does that he gets
growled at. Mor just swivels round her in seat and waggles her eyebrows
suggestively at him while smirking. Az sighs some more.
Nesta and Cassian frequently have
intense make out sessions in the backseat. Mor and Azriel take bets on how long
they’re going to remain entwined before they surface this time. Az is eerily good
at guessing right. But they’re betting in kisses so Mor doesn’t really mind him winning.
Cassian falls asleep with his
head on Nesta’s shoulder. Nesta and Mor draw on him. (No-one is quite sure how Mor manages this from the front seat
but the girl is nothing if not determined) They take a lot of pictures which
they send forward to the other car. By the time Cassian wakes up at the rest
stop his pen moustache is a social media sensation. He decides to be proud of
it and refuses to wash it off until Nesta forcibly scrubs at it that night in
the motel because he looks ridiculous.
Amren + Feyrhys + Elucien:
Amren drives the other car.
No-one contests this. Despite the fact she drives at like 150mph constantly,
doesn’t appear to take any notice of things like traffic lights, stop signs,
junctions, or road markings and they all feel like they’re taking their lives
in their hands. She blithely reassures them that she hasn’t killed anyone yet.
(This reassures no-one. But still. No-one contests Amren driving. They’re not that stupid)
Nobody rides shotgun in Amren’s
car. Lucien is the only one that would have done but Elain needs him in the
back beside her for hand crushing purposes so Amren is going solo in the front
while the others all hide in the back thinking that, when they inevitably crash,
they might be safer in there. (Rhys does take a turn for a little while when
they stop after Feyre has fallen asleep (how she achieves this while the rest
of them are clutching onto the edges of their seats no-one knows) and he and
Amren chatter a bit. Or rather Rhys chatters, Amren grunts, nods, and tells him
he’s an idiot at appropriate intervals)
Amren controls the music in Amren’s
car. This is just the law. Lucien sings along with everything (Lucien is just
one of those people who has no musical boundaries at all. He knows everything.
He has heard everything. He can bond with anyone over music.) She only changes
it when Elain makes a polite request to have one of her songs on.( She gives
Rhys the kind of look that makes grapes shrivel to raisins before your eyes
when he asks the same thing)
Elain is in charge of all of the
food and keeps Amren well provided with snacks passed through from the back
while they drive. (Amren and Elain have a lovely little dynamic which mostly
revolves around polite/appreciated silences/occasional quiet conversation,
feeding and being out in the garden at the same time – Elain gardens; Amren
Elain also sorted the main group
picnic out. Azriel helped her with the organising and Cassian helped her with
the making of the food.(Elain and Cassian are the go-to work pair in the
kitchen. Az is very good at specifics but leaves the general stuff to the
experts, Mor is hopeless, Nesta got herself banned after setting the place on
fire (for the third time) Lucien is on hand to hand Elain things and provide
supportive kisses (ie get in the way but she never shoos him out) FeyRhys just
let them get on with it, they’re in charge of almost everything else so they’re
Lucien is the designated ‘are we
there yet’ one. (Elain makes him stop when she senses Amren is about to violently
Feyre takes her sketchpad and
doodles everyone/everything that inspires her while they drive. Rhys considers
any moment she isn’t drawing him to
be a wasted moment. Rhys gets stabbed in the arm with her pencil quite a lot.
Elain is the one with the camera.
Elain takes pictures of everyone and everything (mostly Lucien. They’ve only
just gotten together. They’re already sickeningly domestic and adorable) Rhys
considers any picture that he isn’t in as a wasted picture. Feyre stabs him
some more on Elain’s behalf.
Lucien is always last back in the
car. Always. Every single time. No matter what else the others do. No-one quite
knows why and Lucien isn’t telling.
Elain hands out her food and
makes sure nobody takes more than their fair share (Cassian gets swatted on the
hand a lot. I don’t care if you made it, or if you’re starving and feel like you’re about to die, or if it’s the
best thing you’ve ever eaten in your entire life. Share nicely)
FeyRhys always get caught
sneaking off for a quickie (Moriel slip off too but they never get caught)
Rhys brings a little portable games
set and a pack of cards and they play a few things with each other. Mor, Nesta
and Feyre watch (Elucien have wandered off to find food) when Cassian and Azriel
team up against Rhys at poker (Feyre has to do a lot of ego stroking (amongst
other things) that night to stop him being about it for the rest of the trip)
They all play Liar. Elain wipes
the floor with them all to everyone’s shock (except Lucien’s, who knows better)
Rummy results in a mixed bag and is called off after Lucien nearly ends up with
a pen in his eye courtesy of Nesta (to be fair he kind of deserved it) Rhys
gets some of what he lost to Azriel and Cass back when they play group poker Then
loses it all to Feyre. (Really, darling, I thought we were a team) Blackjack is
just a disaster.
They all play Monopoly (except
Amren who’s napping in her room throughout these games; which is the only reason the others risk playing) This results in three
fallings out, several bruises, enough cursing to make a sailor blush, countless
accusations of cheating, a lot of tag-teaming by the various couples, and a shocking
betrayal that does result in a lot of crying and yelling and almost results in a broken finger. They do not play Monopoly
Everyone wisely backs the fuck
out when Amren says she’ll play chess with one of them. Lucien and she have a
few games. The others mysteriously vanish off to a safe distance for an
extended period of time while this goes on. They’re shocked to find him alive
and in one piece when they return.
Alcohol is had a night, drinking
games are played and eventually they end up playing strip poker. This is
something that they all faithfully agree never to speak about ever again. All
pictures of the event are wiped from the face of the earth. They’re all very
pleased their memories are incredibly hazy the next morning (Amren remembers it
all. Amren has blackmail material on all of them to comfortably last her
several lifetimes. Amren wields this mercilessly) Bonus Destination Beach Day:
Azriel is the one who makes them
drink water/eat/put on sun cream/stop trying to drown each other in the sea. Azriel
is the mother hen of the group. (Supported by Elain)
Nesta is the one trying to do the
drowning. (Cassian and Lucien alternatively. Usually Lucien)
Feyre and Rhys break away from the
main group just before lunchtime and have sex under one of the old piers where
they think they’re very out of the way and inconspicuous. They return to a
collection of catcalls and raucous applause courtesy of Cassian and piercing
wolf whistling courtesy of Lucien when they wander back to their umbrellas.
They are fooling no-one. Ever.
Elain and Lucien spend most of their
time on the beach of all of them as Elain isn’t a very confident swimmer and
prefers watching most of the time and Lucien likes keeping her company (and
making sure she puts on plenty of sun cream. Which is a real chore for him to
help with, obviously)
At some point though Cassian and
Rhys do take it upon themselves to pick Lucien up between them and fling him
into the sea. Just because.
Elain takes some seriously
cracking pictures of the lot of them in the sea. She has a real knack for
getting the timing just right. She makes them all line up and do lots of arty
shots with the sunset in the background later on.
Azriel and Mor spend a lot of
their time surfing together (and making out) in a cove nearby that has awesome
waves. Later in the day Az surrenders his surfboard to be used as a float and
brings Elain out onto the water so she can join in more.
Nesta is a sun goddess and is
more than happy to spend all of her time baking in the sun beside Amren and
working on her tan. Cassian has other ideas. Cassian throws a bucket of water
over Nesta to try and ‘encourage’ her to join in them in the water. Nesta
nearly kills Cassian. He manages to convince her otherwise by kissing her when
she catches him and tackles him onto the sand (no-one ever really susses out
how Nesta, who is by all accounts very delicately built and a foot shorter than
Cassian in heels, manages to tackle her enormous idiot of boyfriend on the
sand. It doesn’t really matter that it defies all the laws of physics. She
Elain spends a lot of time putting more sun
cream on Lucien while huffing that he’s turning into a lobster before her very
eyes and he burns too easily. She makes him sit under the umbrella with her for
extended periods of time and he settles into his favourite position with his
head in her lap. They gossip shamelessly about the others and judge everyone
else on the beach because they’re clearly not as cute a couple as they are.
Mor and Azriel go exploring and stumble across
a number of rock pools and a collection of very pretty, very cool caves. They
show the others and they all wander around them a bit in the afternoon when it
gets too hot to sit stewing on the beach and they’re all tired of the sea (but
the keep the cavern with the waterfall and the lagoon to themselves)
Everyone is incredibly amused when
one of the local guys, who introduces himself as Varian, spends a lot of time
trying to chat up Amren. She plays with him the way a cat plays with a mouse,
or the way a lion might toy with dinner. They start a betting pool on how long
it’s going to be before he susses out he’s got no chance and either gives up or
Amren gets bored and casually murders him. Neither happens and while he doesn’t
get lucky he also doesn’t get eaten alive. Which is an achievement in itself.
Feyre and Rhys offer to wander
into town and get provisions. Which is an excuse to spend a little bit of time
away from their mad family; they love them a lot they really do but it’s also
nice to wander along the sand holding hands and not have to listen to Nesta yelling
at Cassian for nearly tearing her bikini top with his giant manly paws or watch
Az and Mor try and be subtle about the way they’re gazing at each other or
intervene every ten seconds to stop Lucien and Nesta growling at each other and
teetering on the brink of murder.
They all get quite sleepy in the
afternoon and break up into smaller groups. The couples all do coupley things
for a little while. Rhys and Feyre lounge together and he reads to her. Lucien
and Elain put headphones in and end up falling asleep together (Lucien ends up
with some hilarious tan lines from this) Mor and Azriel go back to that cave
where they found the waterfall and spend a good long time there alone together.
Nesta and Cassian wind up back in the sea together and spend a long time
floating among the waves kissing one another.
Amren and Nesta have an excellent
and intense bitching session with one another about everything and anything. It’s
cathartic, traditional and necessary.
Azriel and Elain have a very quiet but very
serious debate about the most recent Masterchef episode (which they both avidly
Mor falls asleep on top of Azriel
in the middle of this conversation and despite the fact he’s sweltering he
doesn’t shift her off, he just runs his fingers absently through her hair while
he talks to Elain and tilts the umbrella a bit so she’s covered.
Rhys and Cassian play bat and
ball a little ways away (but not far enough because Cassian still somehow
manages to hit Nesta on the head with a ball, accidentally, but that doesn’t
stop her snarling at him. Amren drily suggests relieving him of all of his
balls, since he clearly can’t be trusted with any of them) When Mor wakes up
she gets up and joins them and shows them how it’s done.
Feyre and Lucien have a friendly argument over
the latest football match they went to see about the various teams, line-ups
and tactics. (Amren joins in to support Feyre. Lucien and Amren then have a
much less friendly argument that ends when Elain deftly steps between them and
drags Lucien off to get them all ice cream and protect his idiotic ginger self
from Amren’s glower)
Mor and Lucien have a very long
talk about music, their favourite bands, their favourite songs, the best
concerts they’ve ever been to etc. While they’re doing this she insists that
Lucien let her braid his hair. Lucien consents.
Nesta sits with Elain and lets
her chatter away about her garden and Lucien and in turn lets Nesta talk about
Cass and she complains about what a pillock he is. (But Elain isn’t fooled, she
spends most of her time watching him with soft eyes because she thinks no-one’s
Cassian commandeers the camera
and starts taking lots of pictures of everyone. Elain always looks excellent in
every picture no matter the lighting/angle/how much warning she’s given.
Cassian always looks awful but he spends most of his time with the camera
taking pictures of Nesta until Rhys swipes it and starts taking a ridiculous
number of pictures of Feyre instead. Lucien can’t have that, he has to have
lots of pictures of his lady on her camera. Azriel confiscates said camera (and
takes several pictures of Mor, but subtly) then graciously returns it to Elain.
Cassian, Azriel and Rhys somehow
end up in the middle of a wrestling match. Everyone else is far too used to
this to really bother noticing. It ends when Amren sighs, trips them all within
the span of about thirty seconds and the ladies swoop in to retrieve their
idiotic boys and assure them that yes they were watching and yes babe, you were
definitely the best.
The sun goes down and they all
wake up a bit. Lucien digs his guitar out of the car and everyone puts in their
various requests and he does his best to oblige them all.
Azriel actually has a very nice
voice but refuses to sing much, he only consents to give them a couple of bars
because Mor coaxes him into it. Mor’s voice is terrible. She’s aware of this.
She doesn’t give a damn. Lucien isn’t bad; he’s musical enough to carry a tune
even if he doesn’t have the best voice. Nesta is loud and flat; so is Cassian,
they make a good team on their own but when set to music/anyone else it becomes
less so. Rhys is incredibly overly dramatic and can’t settle for just ‘singing’
he must perform. Elain has a very
sweet voice but is so quiet that no-one but Lucien can hear her. Feyre sings
more the more she drinks and the more Rhys encourages; she doesn’t have a bad
voice either. Even Amren sings when
Lucien plays one of her songs; Lucien claims bragging rights on this from now
until the end of time.
At some point Rhys pulls Feyre to
her feet and that starts all of them off dancing. Cassian takes a turn on
guitar at some point so that Lucien has a chance to dance with Elain too. (This
is short lived because Mor informs him he’s making her ears hurt and if he plays
that song one more time she’s going
to beat him to death with that guitar. Lucien swiftly steps in again to take
over and rescue his child (the guitar; not Cassian)) They all take turns
dancing with each other though.
They’re all exhausted that night
and they’re all late getting up and leaving to get home the next morning but
eventually they all pile into the cars (yes, Lucien is last again; Nesta growls
at him, he just smirks at her. Cassian and Elain tug their significant others
away from each other before permanent damage is done. Elain scolds Lucien;
Lucien “apologises” to Nesta. They spend the entire journey home bickering with
each other over text between the two cars. When Elain discovers this Lucien
gets another scolding and she withholds kisses from him (for a full ten minutes
before she caves in))
They all make it home in one
piece and a lot of sprawling idly over furniture and each other is done that
night as they sleep off their hurricane weekend in Azriel and Mor’s living
