day 3: AUs
did someone say legends college au
- gotta stay true 2 canon: rip is that guy that doesn’t sleep. he’s a double major (history + engineering) and like Holy shit is he dead inside. someone Please help him. also because I Can, miranda is his gf who is at least 5x better than him, also a double major (almost a triple) and she’s the kind of person who’s always organized + gets shit done on time? this is ridiculous rip is dying.
- Catch them in the library, miranda taking notes from three books at a time, rip asleep with a book covering his head. he’s snoring gently. she looks fondly at him every couple of minutes. eventually, she leans over and takes a selfie for snapchat. it’s great.
- jax took courses at a community college during high school (while also doing sports!) so he Technically has the same standing as the rest of the gang. martin is a professor part time, and he and jax worked on a project together when jax was in the community college so they know each other pretty well.
- ray is actually doing his third degree and he’s so damn smug about it. someone smack him. no one actually knows what mick is doing. it’s not Confirmed if he’s a student or what. no one really cares to ask.
- sara is a Humanities major. that’s all anyone knows. kendra is a fine arts major w/ a history minor. she’s also in a Singing Group and always invites the gang to her performances. carter is her Bf who is always out of town so a lot people always think he’s Dead.
- amaya is also here because y’all should know how gay i am already, and she’s definitely an activist or something. it’s lit. sort of dating sara? it’s Complicated (not really but they like to say it is). also sort of dating kendra? amaya, the Lesbian Icon we Deserve ,,
- Anyways jonah is from Out of Town and he comes visit once and like Rip Is Dying? they’re not Technically exes because they never really ~Dated~ but also rip stole jonah’s coat. it’s Gay™ and you can cut the tension with a knife.
- miranda, who is definitely known as rip’s Better Half ,,
- okay but jax, ray, and rip taking the same level course + subject (some kind of unholy lovechild of theoretical physics and math concepts), and ray is actually, like, stumped on a problem. he asks rip but rip just. laughs. because he is so behind on work. he buries his head in his arms. Someone save him. then ray asks jax, who definitely figured it out, and is definitely holding the answer hostage to get the Most out of this experience.
- jax: hey, rip, can i borrow a pencil?
- rip hunter, who has never owned a pencil in his entire life, who only has a pen that’s out of ink in his bag, whose laptop Begs for death each time he boots it up, but can’t die because it’s has rip’s everything on it, looking tired and defeated: i’m not even sure i’m supposed to be in this class.
- martin teaches a course or two but u can bet the legends invade his class. ray actually gets in an argument with him at one point despite the fact that he’s not even supposed to be here, ray get out of this classroom. rip recorded it. jax couldn’t stop laughing.
- rip’s instagram is 45% hipster pictures with the sepia filter, 45% candids of miranda, 9% sara stealing his phone and taking selfies with kendra, 1% a cat that keeps following him that he’s going to keep as soon as he can catch it.
- the group chat is 110% memes.
