i found this post in my drafts and have ZERO memory of writing it (thank u alcohol) so im gonna put it in my queue lol
ok but imagine
Bitty comes out to his parents but he doesn’t tell them about Jack, thinks it’s for the best, maybe to ease his parents into things or maybe to keep the pool of People Who Know as small as possible
and like yeah Ransom and Holster are super oblivious but Suzanne Bittle is not, not when it comes to her son, because she is a certified Nosy Southern Mother and she can see he’s been acting differently, happier but quieter, always on his phone and blushing when she asks about boys
and he talks about the team a LOT
Jack’s one of his best friends and he’s just started his NHL career, so of course Bitty’s never gonna shut up about Jack
(Same goes for Shitty and law school. And eventually Ransom and med school. Dicky is proud of his friends and wants everyone to know. He gets that trait from Suzanne, she understands)
but he keeps talking about this one Boy, how sweet he is and how his smile is like a sack of puppies and how bitty’s always making this boy do things with him like baking and getting froyo and going shopping and Suzanne is like. Yes. This must be Dicky’s secret boyfriend.
the next family weekend or whatever, Suzanne demands to meet this Chowder boy who’s stolen Bitty’s heart
I JUST WENT ON THE RWBY WIKI TO LOOK UP A REF OF SUN BUT I STARTED LOSING MY SHIT BECAUSE OF THIS
I’M SOBBING ROOSTER TEETH IS A BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO WORK IMAGINE BEING ASKED AS A CONCEPT ARTIST TO JUST DRAW AN EXISTING CHARACTER IN THE MOST BASIC, UNREMARKABLE CLOAK EVER AND GETTING PAID FOR IT, PROBABLY JUST AS MUCH AS DRAWING CONCEPT ART FOR COMPLEX CHARACTERS’ CLOTHES AND WEAPONS I AM WEEPING WITH LAUGHTER
so the figure skating anime is coming but you know what else should totally be a thing? figure skater mikleo. like he specializes in water/ice and he’s slender and elegant and all. and sorey would be his biggest fan of course
I know a popular ‘humans are weird to
aliens’ topic is how easily humans can bond to animals. But then
think the opposite.
We humans are so weird because we are
practically bonding magnets
have our social hierarchies, so it makes sense that we can fit in
with certain groups like dogs and even gorillas if we can understand
them enough. We get ourselves acquainted with dogs who have been
domesticated and these dogs will leap into our laps and constantly
bother us for pets and treats and licking us as a way to show
affection. People who can get certain animals to open up to us are
super cool. Aliens are in awe of how our understanding of them can
get us into a pack so readily that humans who are super close to
normally protective dog mothers are allowed to hold their precious
even manage to bond with animals like cats, known to be mostly
solitary. We care for these cats and when they’re comfortable they
will break their isolation and seek us out for affection.
an alien seeing a dog or cat go to an upset human and try to nuzzle
them or snuggle into their lap to let themselves be held for our
emotional comfort. These animals which, though currently
domesticated, were descended from predators streamlined towards a
goal of becoming efficient hunters. Willingly coming to our emotional
aid and comforting us because they’ve bonded with us so closely.
see dogs act as protectors and bark away intruders on the human
territory, but instantly turn happy when they know it’s their owner
and friend. They see cats utilizing inborn maternal instincts to hunt
down and leave 'gifts’ of dead things in an effort to feed and teach
their humans to take care of them since we’re such worthless hunters
in their eyes. They’ll even know if something is wrong with humans
medically before we do, or know about disturbances in the home like
fires or gas leaks, and will uncharacteristically jump us to get us
out of danger.
when humans are in danger by others, and an animal senses it before
we do, these animals will immediately jump on the defensive and snarl
and warn against any potential enemies and try to alert us.
got dogs who will literally jump on intruders and bite them when
they’re trying to attack their human owners. Throwing themselves and
and intimidating animals many times larger than themselves for our
sake. Even cats, the ones people might think aren’t very interested
in their humans, will throw themselves into the fray and claw the
hell out of something that’s a danger to a precious human of theirs.
for an added bonus, imagine if we can get this to apply to bigger,
deadlier animals with similar capacity for pack bonding.
months and months of talking, mimicking, feeding, and caring for a
giant predator the rest of the crew refuses to near, it’s sort of
relaxed to the human. A sense of loyalty that 'yes, this creature
cares for me’. Then, one day, pirates invade the vessel and somehow
the animal gets loose. Cue the crew panicking when it comes ambling
out of its’ holding bay at the time when a pirate is about to bring a
knife or something down on the human. Two seconds later this pirate
is running and screaming for its life when it sees it. The creature
takes a running start, LEAPS over the human (which was closest to it
and already injured) and takes off after it. When that pirate is
either captured or dead, the creature returns to the human, nuzzling
them and making sounds to see if they’re okay.
human is smiling and mimicking the sounds back, or just talking to it to say what a 'good boy’ it is.
aliens of the crew are in shock. The rest of the humans just smile
but seriously, like, akuma attacks have to happen when adrien and marinette are in the shower or duing some other equally inconvenient time. why do i never see that in the show or in fics
like marinette’s in the shower and her phone goes off because the news stations are freaking out over the akuma
and marinette’s like “shit i’m in the middle of shaving my legs” but oh well, gotta save the city again
so she just has to jump out the shower and doesn’t even have time to get dressed before she transforms.
so she shows up with her hair soaking wet and conditioner still in her hair and she’s gotta fight an akuma. probably like in the middle of winter too to make it worse.
meanwhile chat shows up with a freakin’ croissant in his mouth because he was just in the middle of breakfast and needed to transform but there’s no way in hell an akuma is going to prevent him from skipping the most important meal of the day
or like one day ladybug shows up with eyeliner on only one eye and chat shows up with only one cheek contoured
because marinette was in the middle of her morning routine and adrien was in the middle of makeup for a photoshoot when the attack started
both showing up to fights at 3AM with bed heads and retainers still in because they literally just jumped out of bed
and it probably gets to the point where it’s super normal for chat and ladybug to show up looking super weird and unkempt bc they were in the middle of something random but they had to just drop everything and go
Joly studying for finals is terrifying. He’s normally so sweet and cheery to the point where literally nothing can ever make him truly mad (unless it’s social injustice), so his friends don’t know how to handle him when it’s finals week.
He’s a bio and anatomy double major with a pre med track. It’s impossibly difficult. His stress manifests into absolute rage during finals.
He locks himself in his room and only leaves to get more tea, hair wild and sticking up everywhere, and murder in his eyes.
