picture alec coming back to the institute after spending the night there and his hair is immaculate, nothing looks out of place, and even though jace and izzy tease him they actually can’t find anything that would suggest anything had happened… until alec walks away and the camera pans down to see brightly coloured socks that are obviously not his

I know we’re all still recovering from the pier breakup scene, but can we have a moment of appreciation for how similarly the Brotzman siblings reacted to being lied to?

Amanda: “Everything about you is a lie. I don’t want your help, and I don’t want to ever see you again. You are exactly the piece of shit that everyone thinks you are.”


Todd: “You’re a liar, and you ruined my life, just to have a friend. You deserve to be alone, Dirk. After all this is over, don’t ever speak to me again.”

  • What she says: I'm fine.
  • What she means: Do you ever think about how the blackquill sibling's reaction to the ur-1 incident are basically two sides of the same coin? Simon devoted himself to protecting Athena at all costs when he was afraid she killed her own mother. Aura on the other hand wanted nothing mroe than for Athena to pay for her crimes, and the only way she was able to carry on was by hating the little girl. Both made irrational actions born from extreme emotions, one of love and devotion, the other hatred and spite. I wonder if anyone else has made this parallel...

So… Does that give you a clue?? lol Thank you so much ^^ Your message really gives me strength and inspiration to continue this au.

On a good note, let’s have some Avatar AU Headcanons, since I’m in a pretty good mood! 

  • Eijun likes to mess with Miyuki by blowing out his fire from time to time (especially when Miyuki teaches Eijun firebending techniques lmao) 
  • Eijun likes to come up with new airbending tricks and always shows Chris-senpai for praises, but instead he gets a lecture for not honing his skills… then he gets a complimentary pat on the head afterwards; Eijun calls Chris “Shisho” ^^
  • Miyuki wears a mask to cover up his scar because it reminds him of how his family is imperfect like himself; the mask hides his pain, fears, and tears. 
  • Miyuki doesn’t like to cry in front of others and has only cried in front of his Aunt Rei, but when he cried for the first time in front of Eijun - he made up the excuse that he had learned waterbending. Eijun, being the gullible person he is, almost fell for it. 
  • Eijun calls his bison and lemur “Hiroto (Hiro for short)” and “Kaito (Kai for short)”, respectively, after they cheered him up when they took him for a ride across the ocean when he lost his family 
    • Hiroto = From Japanese 大 (hiro) meaning “big, great” or 博 (hiro) meaning “command, esteem” combined with 翔 (to) meaning “soar, glide” or 斗 (to), which refers to a Chinese constellation. Other kanji combinations can also form this name.
    • Kaito = From Japanese 海 (kai) meaning “sea, ocean” combined with 斗 (to), which refers to a Chinese constellation, or 翔 (to) meaning “soar, fly”. Other kanji combinations are also possible.
  • Miyuki and Rei made a bet on whether who was the Avatar between Chris and Eijun. During his first attempt to capture the Avatar, Miyuki was convinced that Chris was the Avatar because he was skilled and “handsome,” but Rei saw the greatness and potential of the Avatar in Eijun when he threw air pitches at them. (Eijun and Chris are the last known surviving airbenders) 
  • Eijun first met the Kominato siblings when he snuck out to the ocean with Hiro and Kai because he wanted to surprise Chris with dinner aaaannndd… he just wanted to see the Ocean because it was the anniversary of his family’s death… plus he was ordered to never leave the hideout by Chris’ orders (curiosity killed the cat lol). The Kominato siblings were out fishing when they stumbled upon a very distressed Eijun who was having difficulty in chasing a fish on his air scooter. 

So… Up next are the waterbending Kominato siblings ^^ 

December is such a hard month for me. My dad passed away three years ago in December. And although my brother died in September, I remember that first December and Christmas without him being so horrible, I think because the shock was wearing off and we were starting to realise what it all meant. And now, everyone’s happy and in the holiday spirit and expects us to be as well, because ‘it’s been long enough’, but of course it doesn’t work like that. December sucks.
