Draco got PISSED when he heard about the Dursley’s. Even though Harry assured him that he came out fine, gnomes and doxies can sometimes be found in the Dursley home nowadays with seemingly no explanation.
gilmore girls au where hanji gets pregnant with sasha at 16 and then runs away from home when sasha is 1. she winds up in a really small town and starts working at an inn, where she meets her best friend and chef, nanaba. they work at the inn with moblit and mike, their produce guy.
soon after she moves to this little time, hanji meets levi, the owner of a diner. she and baby sasha go there basically every day, and over time they become really great friends (and levi starts falling for her).
when sasha starts school she becomes super good friends with mikasa, who has super strict parents that don’t approve of hanji’s lifestyle. mikasa eventually joins a band with eren and has to hide it from her parents with the help of sasha.
sasha gets accepted to a super nice and fancy school that costs a shit ton of money, so hanji has to ask her parents for help and winds up having to have dinner with them every week. sasha dates connie for a while, but then when levi’s nephew, jean, moves to town, she falls for him instead.
if ur writing a gerita human au and don’t include a scene where lud goes to meet feli’s family and he’s like a foot taller and 20x blonder than everyone else there and just tries to stand in the corner looking inconspicuous then idk what’s with u tbh
You know what though? Lucifer wouldn't even WANT a vessel who's easily manipulated...
This is one of the many things I find funny about people who say Lucifer manipulates Sam. Lucifer’s whole thing is he rebelled through anger at all his siblings just blindly doing as they were told. Lucifer is the ultimate advocate of free-thinking. He thinks the demons who have been fooled into believing he’s their ‘father’ who cares about them are funny, he totally dismisses them after killing a bunch: “what? They’re just demons”. Lucifer thinks people who are easily manipulated are awful. All he damn well wants is for his siblings to learn to think for themselves. He claims he was cast down “because I had a mind of my own”. He shows a fondness for Castiel, even though Cas doesn’t agree with him, but at least Cas isn’t just another drone, he can think for himself!
And then there’s Sam, who is a complete parallel of Lucifer. He’s always been the one with the different opinions, not like Dean in just blindly following their father. Sam’s a fellow individual, another independent mind, the kind of person Lucifer appreciates for being like him in being able to question injustices. Lucifer just wants to help Sam to keep using this insight. He doesn’t need to manipulate Sam, because he truly believes that if Sam were to use this independent mind of his to look at the situation with logic and an unbiased mind- without Dean, without the fixed concept of right and wrong, without the predetermined label of him being 'the devil’- Sam will come to the same conclusion as him and willingly side with him. That’s why all Lucifer does is talk to him and explain himself. Lucifer doesn’t manipulate Sam. Lucifer reasons with Sam. Lucifer doesn’t care for his demon army, because he considers them below him, but Sam is made for him, worthy of him, and as his other half, Lucifer treats him with the respect of someone as intelligent as himself. There’s a reason Lucifer says “any of this sound familiar?” because he considers them on mutual ground.
Lucifer isn’t certain from the start that Sam will say yes because he has confidence in his own manipulative abilities. He’s certain because he has confidence in Sam’s intelligence.
“So I’m standing there filling up like I’ve done a thousand times before, and I hear a chunk. You know, the pump’s nozzle. The– the metal thing. The thing you squeeze, right? I hear a chunk. So I suppose, in my naivete, I took to understand that gas is no longer coming out of the nozzle, so I pull out the hose to put it back and whoosh! You know, I am suddenly soaked in gasoline. I mean, on my arms and my legs and my– my groin. So now I am in a panic, and I race home, I run inside the house, and I’m stripping off my clothes as fast as I can. I jump in the shower. It’s not until after I get out of the shower that I realize my gas-covered clothes have been soaking in the living room rug this entire time. I mean, it’s– it’s– the whole thing is just so stupid. I could have rinsed off at the station. Halfway home, I’m starting to realize– wait a minute– there’s a water hose right there next to the air pump. You know, for tires. Anyway, so that was my day. How was yours?”
