anonymous asked:

SoC Modern AU where Kaz hasn't admitted that he loves Inej yet, but every time he see her the song "I love you baby" plays in his head nonstop. He hate it but can't help it. One day, without realizing it, he hummed the chorus and Jesper caught him.

Jesper would make fun of Kaz and his feelings in any universe, nonnie. And it would take every bit of Kaz not to smash Jesper’s teeth in every damn time

Look, so I get the appeal of making Kaz in modern AUs be the delinquent who spends every Saturday in detention and that’s cool and all, but consider… Van Eck says in SoC that Kaz hasn’t been arrested since he was 14, and he always puts on the respectful “yes sir” act around Per Haskel. So imagine, little demon-child middle school Kaz was every teacher’s worst nightmare, but contrary to all the horrors they heard, the high school staff find him to be oddly pleasant. Like honor roll, does extra credit, total kiss ass to teachers. But then stuff happens. School website was hacked. The school board president’s shady emails are published online. The lion mascot costume always ends up missing before pep rallies and is replaced with a giant crow one. The school’s 5 month supply of chicken casserole is one day just gone. Someone scaled the gym wall to hang up a banner reading “fuck Principal Rollins” from the ceiling. They all know. Everybody knows. They just. can’t. prove anything.

Also him and Matthias have the catty better-than-you antagonism that only ever spawns between AP kids and student athletes.

I’ve been working on this thing for two weeks. Two. Weeks. I AM TIRED.
Anyways, as y’all know, I’ve been doing drabbles of the Modern!Dregs in preparation for a much bigger fanfiction I’ve got planned. I’ll post them all individually with little descriptions about them all, but until then, here’s the whole group. <3
And, of course, these lovelies belong to the amazing @lbardugo . Her writing has brought me so much joy, I can’t ever thank her enough.
This will also be found on my art blog @messyjester

AU where the dregs go to an amusement park

asdasdj OKAY BUT:

- the dregs daring kaz to go on the ghost train and he’s like i ain’t afraid of no ghost?? so he gets on and 5 min later there are two men clad in sheets literally pushing through the staff exit, two spooky knights trailing after them and one skeleton muttering “i didn’t sign up for this” (you can clearly see kaz behind them, casually swooshing his cane around, the epitome of calm)
- meanwhile wylan decides to prove to kaz /and to himself + brag a little in front of jesper) he can handle the ghost ride too so he gets on another train, smoothing his hair back, rolling up his sleeves, acting all cool and badass. 5 min later wylan reappears, white as a sheet, wheezing a little, saying “the lamest ghosts i’ve ever seen!! hahahhahah!! fear who?? i don’t know her”
- nina treats inej to a delicious ice cream cone and they take cool pictures dressed up as marie antoinette and nina fills up her dress so much (and well) the photographer can’t get his bearings while nina just smooths down her skirts with a haughty smirk like, “from one cake lover to another”
- inej makes an offhanded comment about this plush tiger she liked and how it’s ridiculous to pay so much money to shoot a target in order to get smth so it becomes the dregs’ mission to get her that toy
- five minutes later the squad rolls up carrying an entire bag of plushies, some short cash and owner’s apology written in ink while he begged kaz not to set his amusement park on fire
- inej smiles, shakes her head and gives the tiger to a little brown girl who seems lonely and upset while her friends are at the playground with their barbies (she also tells her how tigers are one of the scariest felines AND predators in the entire world and it can eat three barbies at once)
- meanwhile matthias decides to try his luck with the high striker (that’s how it’s called here so idk if that’s the right term but it’s that thing where you test your strength by smashing a lever with a hammer), not really trying to boast about himself or anything and literally BREAKS the lever, apologizing profoundly to the completely shocked guy holding his price
- kuwei is just chilling on the carousel like, “this is nice”
- they collectively get on the roller coaster and even kaz screams at some point even if no one can tell if it’s the urge to puke or he’s actually genuinely happy and enjoying life rn
- either way they try every other ride until they’re literally green and regretting A Lot of the choices they’ve made in the past half an hour but they’ll always remember that day as one of the best days in their life - not just as a team but individually as well
- after they’re done puking (inej is the only one holding up but she helps them cope with the aftermath of the rides by gently holding nina’s hair, patting jesper on the back, safekeeping kaz’s cane, throwing dirty glances at anyone who makes a face at them bc excuse you you’d be sick after 15 amusement rides too?? tf??)
- later, they all go for refreshments while jesper shows them the pics he’s taken on his phone when they weren’t looking. there’s even one where kaz’s unmistakingly smiling at no one in particular (it’s just a coincidence inej’s laughing in the background and kaz’s head is turned in her general direction)
- the pic /mysteriously/ disappears a few hours later but the good memories (and the rest of jesper’s camera roll) remain

A concept: Jesper on project runway

  • Jesper gets casted because of his bold aesthetic—his eclectic style pushes the envelope. 
  • He mixes patterns, textures, and shapes, yet he makes sure to fuse in some timeless styles. 
  • His secret is he’s inspired by the the personalities of his closest friends. Given the fact they’re all uniquely different, he manages to interpret each challenge to feel like he’s designing for one of them in particular. Having a concise idea for his target audience gets him far.
  • And his fiery energy produces innovative looks, he’s got ambition like no other. His pieces inspire confidence, yet he makes sure they’re all made of comfortable, breathable fabrics, imaging people can do anything in his designs if situation calls for it—even scale walls.
  • He’s the one who gets in front of the camera and is like, everyone likes me, I’m a bit of something for everyone, completely expecting to impress until he’s forced to realize the competition can get cutthroat and his strong sense of self, his clear direction as a designer, makes him intimidating to the others.
  • He has a victory dance when he wins a challenge. He’s had a low score once and learned from it. He hated the feeling of failing and made sure to never been in the bottom three again. 
  • He dies internally every time there’s a celebrity guest and he’s restless when he’s judged.
  • Team challenges are hard for him because he’s more in his head, struggling with getting other people to understand his visions, and he’s not a good sketcher. 
  • But the unconventional challenges make him shine; he can make a look out of trash bags, turn pebbles into diamonds.
  • He manages to get so much done even in a short amount of time because he works incredibly well under pressure. He’s most productive as the time is winding down because that’s when he feels most alive.
  • People despise his restless energy, he’s always tapping something, breezing by this way and that. He doesn’t care at all.
  • He’s all smiles, tells the cameras he’s there for his mom, who taught him anything was possible. She could do wonders, a true visionary, who managed to manipulate things however she wanted—especially when it came to sewing together different fabrics.
  • “My collection is called Zowa. It simply means blessed.”
  • He doesn’t win, but he gets far.
  • Really wishes he can walk the runway.
  • Camera catches him facetiming Wylan at least once.

(basically i really love this thanks and i’m assuming you sent this bc of my modern jesper headcanons, which makes me love you ahhh. you paid attention)

modern au dregs introducing wylan to harry potter

- wylan being rlly apprehensive at first because ‘no I don’t want to I won’t be able to get through it’ ‘it’s a kids book wylan’ 'ffs don’t be a dick kaz’ and then jesper suggests audiobooks

- because he finds them relaxing and helpful when he gets nervous or jittery 

- so for wylan’s birthday they buy him the full set of harry potter audiobooks

- the nice ones with the cool voices and stuff

- wylan is hooked instantly

- this is a story about a boy from an abusive childhood who gets out. who finds a wonderful, magical place and wonderful, magical friends. a boy who not only saves the world but saves himself, and grows into a fuller, better human. 

- listening to these books makes wylan feel like he too could be something. 

- and jesper is a fucking huge hp nerd. 'have you found out who the half blood prince is yet?’ 'no what shush’ 'oooohhh are you ready for all your theories to be smashed’ 'SHUT UP JESPER’ 'make me’ 'oh i will’ 'how are you gonna do that, kid?’ 'just you wait’

- and when wylan finishes the books all of them watch the films

- picture it. these six little stupid, stupid nerds having a harry potter marathon

- by the time they reach the end everyone is crying (even kaz)

- and jesper reaches over to touch wylan’s hand and wylan realises that he’s happy

- and that that’s an emotion he’s feeling more and more recently 

- and maybe, like harry with hogwarts, wylan van eck has found where he belongs
