anonymous asked:

Can I have some good Stephew facts and moments? Thank.

Some good facts:

-Steph made Matt play through the first Portal game to see if he’d make good boyfriend material.

-Steph calls Matt ‘honey’, Matt calls her ‘honey’ and 'darling’.

-Matt’s mom gave Steph a necklace that says 'family’ on it.

-Matt says Stephanie is his number one priority above work, friends, and family.

-Stephanie admitted she gets really emotional around anniversaries.

-Matt used to (and probably still does lbr) sing Stephanie love serenades.

-Every year they argue about the thanksgiving turkey (Matt always wants to buy a huge one, Stephanie points out they can’t eat a massive turkey).

-Matt calls Steph the 'Terror Of The Deep’ due to her love of sushi.

-Stephanie and Matt own matching shirts and occasionally wear them by accident and have to change before the livestreams.

-Matt thinks Steph is cute when she pouts.

-Before they have meetings on Skype with people, they’ll make silly faces together in the webcam.

-When jumpscared, Matt will usually hide behind Stephanie. When there’s an actual threat, he stands in front of her.

-Stephanie has said whenever she went to Matt’s shows, she only ever really paid attention to Matt.

-They’re nerds and share socks.

-Matt has said he has nothing but respect and admiration for Stephanie, not just on a spouse level but a friend level too.

-Stephanie thinks Matt’s brave and admired his courage when it came to never giving up on theatre auditions and putting himself out there.

-Every February 1st, since they first started dating, Matt gives Steph a dozen white roses since they’re her favourite.

-Stephanie has kept every love note Matt gave her.

-Matt regularly compliments Stephanie and admires that she’s a speed reader.

-Stephanie thinks of her engagement ring as her most prized possession.

-In college, Stephanie has basically a thinkgroup with her friends to determine if Matt was gay, and if he wasn’t, if he liked her.

-Matt has said that even before they were dating, even when he was dating someone else, he always liked Stephanie and could always see a future with her (I know I’ve said this one before, but gotdamn do I love this fact).

-By their own admission, over the years Matt has turned Stephanie into a softie.

-Matt said he spent a long time planning his proposal, and the reason it took him so long was because he wanted it to be perfect, and eventually realized it always had been.

-Stephanie loves the 'otters holding hands’ YouTube video because it came out around when they began dating and it makes her think of them.

Here u go! I’d give u some links to Stephew moments, but my computer has been acting up so I can’t link them perfectly to the time and without posting the entire URL. But I think I have a post of some fave moments, and I’ll try and find it and reblog it for you anon!

On 17th June 2017 @raceofhearts and I got married in a small civil ceremony in Edinburgh.

We’ve been together for over five years and it all started because a friend - the kind, joyful and a bit overenthusiastic Johnny, who sadly isn’t with us anymore - showed us Changeling: The Lost rulebook. We all played together for several years and between discussing plotlines, creating character growth for our Changelings and debating alternative outcomes, we slowly fel in love.

It was a disaster - we lived half a country apart, one of us was taken, we were both women and in general when asked by close friends “does she know though?” we both answered with a sound “hell no and she won’t, I’m not in a mood to ruin her life”.

And then things changed.

When I was almost sure there is a chance I sent her a picture of two otters holding each other’s paws with a text “Otters hold hands when they sleep so they don’t float away. Will you be my significant otter?”. I obviously handwaved it as “oh look, what a cute picture, hahaha” but somehow it stuck to us. When we FINALLY got together, our friends called us Otters.

And now, five years and a half later, I’m the happiest otter that ever lived.

Otters hold each other’s hands.
