Hey! I read your answer on blackice AU's and got ridiculously excited about the HDM AU, despite the fact you said you won't be able to write it (which is absolutely understandable). Did you ever consider what daemons they would have? Or for Gwyn and Augus, since they're more your drift? Off the cuff, a Wandering Albatross for Jack seems fitting but the great things about daemons is that everyone has a different interpretation and they're all fascinating. Long live the daemon AUs!

(I am sorry I will not be able to write it! If I had more hands and like another life I would so have written it by now, lol).

As for daemons, I didn’t fix anything down in terms of like ‘they would absolutely have this.’ Though I landed on an Arctic fox for Jack (I do like the idea of the Wandering Albatross though - I can definitely see how symbolism would play in well for Jack). But I didn’t want a bird for Jack, I sort of liked the idea of the Arctic fox as they’re mischievous and playful, but also determined and cunning. They can be shy (ridiculously so) but also bold when necessary. And since I didn’t really associate Jack with the sea, I sort of ruled out seabirds and sea-based animals.

I also like that Arctic foxes go from their brown summer coat, to their white winter coat, and it reminded me of the transformation Jack would have gone to as like ‘regular child of a witch’ to ‘actual rare male witch with ice powers.’ I feel like that transformation would have been the moment his Daemon probably settled into its final form, as well.

I imagined the Nightmare King with a melanistic wild cat of some kind, like a Jaguar and Pitch as having a black horse, but I was never fully decided on that. I did want some kind of ‘service’ animal though, as per the His Dark Materials worldbuilding.

Never got all that far with North’s Daemon (though I did see him as Gyptian), or Toothiana’s (noblewoman and lecturer on the role that memories have in magic, particularly ancestral magic), Bunnymund’s (alethiometer specialist but still not very good at reading them) or Sandy’s (no idea).

As for Gwyn and Augus, they wouldn’t have been in the AU at all! So I never really considered it. But if I were to clumsily shove them into the HDM world and think about it now… Hmm. Oh, Gwyn would have to be a Stag, for sure. Something that can’t hide in his clothing even as he would have desperately wished for something small lol. Ash would probably have an Otter. Augus is tough, I don’t actually think he’d have a horse at all? Augus is always tough with this stuff, tbh, I think he keeps his secrets on purpose and then gets amused when other people try to guess, so he can go ‘wrong,’ ‘oh, no, wrong again I’m afraid.’

Like give me a few months and I’m still not entirely sure I’ll have landed on it. Augus is kind of a little shit that way. I’m fairly certain not a reptile. And I don’t think a cat (though maybe something cat like). Possibly something in the Mustelidae family? But no, I’ll not guess, because I don’t need Augus’ amused voice in my head going: ‘oh no, wrong again, do keep trying though.’ Lol.

saeyoung-luciel-707  asked:

Can I please request RFA+V+Unknown+Vanderwood reaction to MC who is always sleepy and can be found asleep in the weirdest places?

  • Jumin: it’s guaranteed that he’ll take them to a medical professional, fearing that their drowsiness may be a sign of a serious condition (depression, chronic fatigue, etc). If it’s nothing serious, Jumin will scold them, lecturing them about how dangerous it is to sleep wherever they wish.

  • 707: considering his horrendous sleeping patterns, he sleeps in the same places with them, end of story. When Seven’s not napping with them, he’ll make sure to gently shift their body into a more comfortable position, or carry them to the closest couch or bed. 

  • Unknown: he’d tease them so much about it, they’ll never hear the end of it. Whenever Saeran finds them asleep in some odd place, he’ll wake them up and escort them to bed (so he ensures that they don’t fall asleep in some other weird place on the way there).  

  • Vanderwood: holy fuck, he’ll give them so much shit for it. It just leaves him so dumbfounded, he really can’t help himself. Vanderwood wouldn’t want to wake them up, so he’d just place a pillow beneath their head whenever he finds them asleep. 

  • V: he’d be very concerned about how vulnerable they could be when he’s not around. What if they fall asleep in public and a stranger decides to abduct them? Or, what if this was a symptom of a serious condition? V will definitely discuss this with his partner, and encourage them to seek medical attention. 

  • Zen: if they only fall asleep in their home, he’d actually find it pretty adorable. That doesn’t mean he’ll just let them sleep in the same uncomfortable spot, though; they’ll find themselves in bed every time they wake up. However, if they fall asleep in public, Zen will start scolding them about being careless, that they should be more cautious because “all men except him are beasts!”

  • Jaehee: the first time she catches her s/o asleep in a bizarre location, she’ll immediately assume that they’ve fainted. They would have woken up from her re-positioning them on their back and feeling their pulse, to which they’ll explain that they feel fatigued constantly. Similarly to Jumin, Jaehee will take them to a medical professional to make sure that it’s nothing serious. 

  • Yoosung: he simply wouldn’t have the heart to wake them up. Instead, he’ll very carefully try and make their sleep as comfortable as possible. Putting a pillow beneath their head, shifting them in a position that doesn’t strain their muscles, placing a blanket over their body - all of it will be done so that they don’t wake up sore. 

Art trade with kyatto *u* omg go check out her art she has such a lovely way of colouring things and she is so nice, too!!!

Ahh she wished for some touchy but not necessarily nsfw royai…and I somehow struggled with that a lot; I’m still kinda sorry because I don’t feel I drew what was meant… but I know she likes it and I am so glad and it was still absolutely fun for me to draw aaahhh but how can it not be if I get to draw more of the motif I’ve been drawing for two months now??? THANK YOU SO MUCH!!


When I find myself in times of trouble, RDJ speaks to me.

Speaking words of shipping, let it be.

Well Played, Utah

I think Utah is on to something.

Teachers don’t need training. They just need to, as the Washington Post put it, “meet some minimum criteria.”

The thinking behind this is it will be possible to fill all the state’s open teaching positions this way. You know, instead of paying qualified people what they deserve and providing them with support and respect. That seems hard. This is waaaaay easier.


I say, let’s not stop with teachers!

What about doctors? Can they practice without any training? Seems solid. Like, we all HAVE bodies, right? How hard can it be?

Lawyers? Don’t they just pop into court in a nice suit and shout? I have seen SO MUCH Law and Order. Objection? Overruled.

Dentists just tell you to floss more. And even that seems suspect these days.

Why stop with the professions! I declare war on the licensing of drivers. What a waste of resources! All cars will be autonomous soon enough anyway.

See, I am in my fifteenth year of teaching and if there is one thing I know about this job it’s that it is totally easy and anyone can do it.

I am sure that the 42% of Utah teachers who quit within their first five years did so for reasons unrelated to the fact that they live in a state which believes they can literally be replaced by ANYONE.

Since this job is all summers off and being done at three, I am sure the candidate queue will be around the block. Replacing the teachers rather than repairing the system is an excellent idea. I bet these new teachers will be great with no preparation. Not one of them will quit. Ever.

Because this problem is SOLVED.
