Five people came out to Shitty in one week in sophomore year: Holster, Ransom, Johnson (“because really, man, I’m whatever the narrative demands from me, so I’d define it more as a fluid sexuality I guess?” “Cool, thanks for..telling me? I think?”), the cutest Frog Lardo, and…his mom.
Because bear with me here.
So Shitty’s mom - professor of English literature, made him read Toni Morrison etc. while he was growing up, is absolutely responsible for Shitty being the way he is. Mrs Shitty’s Mom (who still goes by Dr Knight because it’s the most badass and sometimes idiot husbands are good only for their last names) has always been a passionate feminist, and works really hard to teach her students about intersectionality and has always been supportive of LGBT rights, and like, she got married young to Mr Shitty’s Dad, and hadn’t really had a lot of time for introspection, and realizes at an age just shy of fifty that “Holy shit I think I am a gay?”
And so she tells Shitty because he’s her son, and she feels he deserves to know and Shitty does everything he can to be supportive because he’s Shitty, but the next person Dr Knight tells is her friend from the philosophy department, who she goes out for drinks with sometimes to complain about university politics. And Dr Suresh is like the sort of philosophy professor who tolerates zero bullshit from the rich white boys who only want to study dead white men, or any bullshit from perpetually stoned white boys who think they understand eastern philosophy better than people who created it. And at one of their drinks-and-debate outings, Drs Knight and Suresh get to talking about queer theory and Dr Knight, trying to be collected and casual and It’s Not A Big Deal™ about it, mentions that “Well shit, of course sexuality is a spectrum she’s 48 and only just realized she’s a lesbian” and Dr Suresh - who is the smoothest - is just “oh well that’s a relief or it was going to be awkward when I asked you on a real date.”
And poor Dr Knight, just total KO, DNR, that’s all she wrote folks.
And so Shitty has a really awesome philosophy professor for a stepmom on his mom’s side, and Dr Suresh gets along like a house on fire with Lardo, and with Shitty, and it’s all very gay in every sense of the word.
Ok guys, real talk.
IS THERE EVEN ANY SURVIVOR FROM HEROES FANDOM?
Im like 10 years late. OK. Please, if you’re still in, message me, reblog, like, SHOW YOUR EXISTENCE.
(And I mean classic series, so far preferably.)
The last one gets really really long because I couldn’t stop - I kinda have so many more of these so remind me to do a part 2 sometime <3 if you like of course :)
when Isak and Sana have to prepare for their final exams in third year, Even helps Isak plan a big study session at their apartment.
there are colourful cushions all over the floor with books stacked in a pile.
Even has freshly baked brownies placed in the centre,
and calming music playing in the background.
Isak claps his hands, raises one eye brow at Sana and exclaims “lets do this”
they spend the afternoon quizzing each other, yelling at their text books and eating all the sugar Even throws at them before deciding they’ve had enough and going out for pizza
When they graduate, the two hug (something rare for both of them)
but they struggle to let go,
when they do Isak blinks his eyes
and Sana laughs at him for crying
I just got a fucking eyelash in my eye okay?!
mmhmm that’s it Isabel
but Isak doesn’t know that Sana is struggling not to cry either. Thank god she chose to wear waterproof mascara today.
Even forces the two to get together as he takes over a million photos of them
Eveeeeeen I think you got enough
Isak are you crying?
Turns out the bio dream team ended up both studying at the university of Oslo
Isak is studying med, Sana is studying politics, but still….
somehow they manage to compete and challenge each other for the better
I can’t do this Sana, I give up. Why did I even bother, I am an idiot. I should just drop out
oh okay I didn’t realise you were a coward
you too scared of work huh?
sana nei I-
wanna do something easy?
but I just
or do you want to work hard and accomplish your dream like the nerd I know you are?
well when you put it like that
okay give me your book, I bet I can answer more questions than you
your on Sanasol
When Isak asks Even to marry him (by hiding the ring in their bottle of kardammome and insisting Even makes him a kardamomme sandwich even tho it tastes like balls) Sana is the first person he calls after screaming with the boy squad for an hour
SANA I DID IT
You learnt to tie your shoe laces? well Isak that’s-
nei Sana he said YES
she pauses for a few seconds before whispering “you did it?”
I DID IT
He said yes?
HE SAID YES
well of course he said yes, that boy looks at you like your god or something
that’s cos I am
she smiles on the other end, her heart growing five sizes at the thought of her two best friends deciding to spend the rest of their lives together
congratulations Isak, I am so happy for you…you- you deserve this.
Isak is gonna cry
will you-okay don’t laugh but- will you be our maid of honour?
Sana is speechless
are you kidding? Sana it all began with you…you and your 10%
her beautiful laugh chimes down the phone
your practically my fairy godmother
oh my gosh say that again and you’ll have to find another maid of honour
well Eskild is keen for the job actually
fine i’ll do it
you’ll do it?
i’ll be honoured Isak
When Isak and Even bring home a baby girl from the hospital, Sana stands back as boy squad, girl squad, and the kollektivet fight over holding the tiny human.
Okay give her to uncle Mags!
Magnus you have literally just held her for 45 minutes, i get her for two seconds and you ask for her back? piss off, Eva says as she presses her face against the small little head
Language! not in front of the baby Noora says horrified,
Vilde grins i’m gonna make her the cutest little aerobics outfit
Is baby aerobics even a thing? Jonas asks as he grabs for the baby
nei back off! Eva says
your being a baby hog Eva
Eskild shakes his head disapprovingly
now give her to her gurumother
we told you that is not a thing Isak laughs
I like it Even grins causing Isak to whack him playfully
Mahdi finally manages to steal little evak from Eva and holds her up to his face
oh great now we’ll never get her Jonas groans
Sana is standing in the back staring intently at the cute cartoon animals Even painted on the wall
are you going to hold her? Isak’s voice startles her
um what - uh nah I- I held her before
no you didn’t
yeah um i did
Isak gives her his snake glare
you don’t like my baby?
what? nei I
what’s wrong with my baby Sana?
oh my god
my baby not good enough for her aunt Sana
hold my baby Sana
Isak- kids are just…I like kids
you like kids?
yes I just
don’t like my kid
fy faen she breathes
LANGUAGE Noora shouts
Even Linn held her, why won’t you
okay fine oh my god
She marches over to where Vilde and Eva are tickling the child which is gazing up with big blue eyes laughing at virtually nothing
give me the child she says
Vilde looks up are you sure
Sana rolls her eyes yes i’m sure
she picks up the baby awkwardly and stares at it
she doesn’t get the appeal
Hi baby she says the baby opens it’s mouth and drools
you don’t do much do you?
the baby crinkles it’s eyes in a smile the way Even does and grows red like Isak does when he is embarrassed (which is a lot)
suddenly Sana grows warm. she sits down with the little girl in her arms and smiles at her
well your not too bad I guess
suddenly she hears a flash from across the room
she looks up to see Even grinning behind a camera
GOT IT he says proudly high fiving Isak
Sana rolls her eyes you two are the worse she says
she shakes her head at the baby
your dads are so lame
the baby hums in agreement
i feel bad for you
the baby pouts
i do and look at those guys over there
she lifts the baby up to show her Mahdi and Magnus playing with a stuffed duck and a stuffed bunny
and then you have Vilde and Eva
she gestures to the girls who are giggling over the baby sock with their arms around each other
the baby coos
don’t it’s not cute
the baby tilts it’s head in interest
the baby isn’t convinced
anyway then you have Noora and Eskild
the babies eyes follow where Sana is pointing
nei Eskild this is plastic, the baby can’t have plastic
oh my gosh Noora you are such a fun sucker
i’m the fun gurumother you’re gonna be the old hag she tricks into giving her money
You are going to poison her!
Sana rolls her eyes
a mess I tell ya
The baby looks over at Chris who is choreographing a dance routine to the nursery rhyme playing from the music box Noora gave the baby
Sana smiles, yeah okay she’s special, she says
the baby nods
Jonas and Linn are in the corner discussing capitalism
the baby raises her nonexistent eyebrows
yeah okay I was surprised about that development too
then she finally lets the little girl look at her parents who are laughing at Magnus and Mahdi and trying to tell Noora and Esklid to chillI
hope you realise how lucky you are Sana says pulling the baby close
I mean they are all crazy, but stick with me kid and i’ll help you through
The baby smiles, she likes that idea
the boys walk over to Sana after a few minutes
hows aunt Sana doing? Even asks
we have an understanding
She loves you Isak smiles, he loves seeing two of his favourite girls together like this
Even picks up his daughter “Okay Lily Flower time for lunch”
Isak grins brightly at seeing his baby in his mans arms
Today, I was approached by a golem in a diving suit. I looked into his mind and it was all screams and their echoes… a cold and hollow infinity whose sole occupant was a warped, painful howling… bleeding out into the indifferent void.
