Phone call with my parents just now:

Mom: So Dad’s been looking at real estate in Pittsburgh, he wants to help you buy and fix up a house! What do you think about that?

[insert discussion about Responsible Adult Things like owning real estate]

Mom: So what’s going on with you?

Me: I…just spent a large amount of money on plane tickets to visit Finland and Germany this summer. *sweats*

Running his hands over his face, Bucky gives a long sigh and takes a seat on the sofa. “I’m sorry for being so emotional right now. It’s just, I, I never expected to ever meet you. I sure as hell never thought that Steve would want me as godfather. Not after…” His voice trails off.

“I understand; I’m emotional myself right now. But Bucky, I need to know, why weren’t you at the funeral? You were his best friend, and you weren’t there. Why?” Alice’s voice gentle as to not sound accusing or ready to fight.

Well she certainly wasn’t beating around the bush was she?

anonymous asked:

for the OTP as parents thing: Who reads the book in silly voices?

Their children always ask for Erik to read to them, because he loves to use his ventriloquism talents to turn story time into an epic tale with a cast of different voices and sound effects! 

Even Christine likes to sit in and listen to him read fairy tales to their children, because it’s so entertaining. Her favorite voice he does is the big bad wolf~

Dear parents who wonder why their kids never talk to them...

Think about what you were saying when they used to talk to you. Think about your choice of words and tone. Think about why they tried to come to you and why they don’t anymore. When you shut them out, belittle them, and blame them for all of their problems, you will lose them. And that will be permanent.

sometimes i cry bc in season 2 giles said to buffy “to forgive is an act of compassion… it’s not done because people deserve it. it’s done because they need it” and buffy subsequently becomes one of the most forgiving characters ever like let me live

Ravenclaw Headcanon

When someone in the class asks if anyone has a spare quill, the ravenclaws are always the ones with five or six, but don’t give them out, because what if they don’t give them back?

Sometimes I think of the pioneers of the Trek fandom, painstakingly putting together zines, copying their fanfiction over and over and over again on unforgiving typewriters and spreading their love for this show and these characters through secret clubs, through the mail, distributing their books and artwork by hand to people they knew they could trust. 

Whenever I think things are hard as a content creator now, I remember them and just thank every star in the sky that they were willing to put in the hard work so that the passion they felt for this show would carry on. Without them, we wouldn’t have a fandom. We wouldn’t have spaces like this where we can share our fanworks with thousands of people. Instantly. Where we can openly and proudly talk about the things we love with those same thousands of people. Without leaving our couches.

So, thanks Trek parents, for all your hard work. <3
