take that big brother!

Steve thinks of Eleven as the little sister he’s always secretly wanted and he takes his role as honorary big brother very seriously, thrilled and more than a little affected by the fact that someone finally looks up to him in a serious and meaningful way. 

His face lights up every time El asks him for a piggyback ride and he never misses an opportunity to run around in zig-zag patterns on the Wheeler’s lawn, El perched on his back giggling as he picks up speed until he’s practically sprinting and she’s laughing joyfully in his ear. 

And you can bet that Steve picks up Jonathan, Will, and El and treats them all for ice cream every Saturday afternoon in the summer. El always has to swat him away when he tries to take a bite out of her banana split. Sometimes, when she’s certain no one is looking, El uses her powers to levitate the top scoop of Steve’s ice cream cone into her banana split bowl and, even though he makes a big fuss about it, Steve secretly adores her trouble-making potential.

I thought about the same thing as the other anon that louis just got spotted at the airport and went home because Lottie is on vacation and she is the one that takes care of the younger kids, so who is taking care of them while she's gone my guess is big brother and brother in law

i’m just gonna throw out a wild guess and say dan takes care of the kids too

anonymous asked:

At first dami slips up and starts calling dick "dad", but over time he starts accidently referring to dick as his dad to other people like "Oh Yea my dad's really good at that" and people get confused cause since when was Bruce good at triple backflips? Dick on the other hand just gets in the habit of calling dami "kid", which is fine until he starts saying "my kid". Then people start getting confused (but dick can't stop cause goddammit that kid is his)

I mean Dami is totally Dick’s kid too? Dick takes after Bruce in that he keeps acquiring random kids, and since Bruce was dead for a good bit of Damian’s initial getting used to the family, Dick really did take on a lot of the parenting. 

The Batfam is a big confusing muddle but they all love each other, and Dick is 100% Damian’s dad. 

Meaning Damian takes his role of big brother VERY seriously to all the various kids Dick keeps acquiring. 

Bitty’s favourite cousins
  • Most people who know Bitty know that he looks alot like his mother
  • But most people who know Bitty do not know that he looks like his father too
  • So some of his cousins from his fraternal side share shockingly similar facial features with him
  • His favourite cousins are the three kids of his dad’s sister, who married a Brit, thus the kids are influenced by both cultures
    • The eldest is a boy two year older than Bits, and he is the Big Brother Who Has To Take Care All of His Ridiculous Siblings (his name is Michael)
    • The other two are actually twins, the elder a girl (Beth) and the younger a boy (Cason)
    • “Listen to me, baby bro” “You are literally only 10 mins older than me” “I’m still your big sister”
    • Anyway, the three kids + Bitty all have the same eyes, while Beth & Bits are especially alike. Like, of course they don’t look the same, (eg  Beth has curly red hair), but they remind other people of each other
    • They grew up with Bitty back in Georgia, but all three opted to go to university in England because 1) half of their family is there, and 2) tuition fee is way cheaper in England
    • from eldest to youngest: Michael - Bits - Beth - Cason
    • Part of why Bitty got his mother hen tendencies is because he got to look after the twins, even though they are only around 1 yr younger than him; but boy they can cause trouble
    • But as you can imagine, Bitty misses them a lot. Beth did figure skating with him when they were younger and the twins were also on his high school’s co-ed hockey team
    • They are some of his only friends back in Georgia, even though none of them is in Georgia now
  • And the SMH met the wonderful cousins of Bitty’s during practice, of all times
  • It was year three, they were not due to be back to England for school yet so they drove up to Samwell to visit Bitty
  • They sneaked into Faber (I have no idea whether watching team practice is allowed or even possible or not, probably should try to fact check this later)
  • Ransom, skating at high speed, turned just enough to see three people, all with the same huge brown Bambi eyes as Bitty’s, standing near the rails and grinning at them
  • And one of them, a boy, is blond
  • He did a double take and promptly crashed into Holster
  • Bitty finally noticed their existence and (very excitedly) skated over to say hi, while the rest of SMH was like “wth is going on”
    • “We brought you peaches!” “Aw thanks sweetheart”
    • The blond kid aka Cason, got introduced by his sister as, “and this elongated version of Bits here is Cason, my little brother”
    • “I’m feeling so much love right now”
    • meanwhile, Michael told Bits, with mock solemnity, “Eric, I am immensely honoured and touched that you are here with me to face this craziness. Time flies by and my dear siblings have not even budged an inch - how unfortunate”
  • Because they had guests, Ransom and Holster decided to host a party (semi-Kegster - Private version?)
  • Obviously they had a good time. The SMH crew had an amazing time chatting with the siblings in order to obtain precious chirp material and even blackmail material
  • Y’know how usually the people grew up with you/ being close with you for many years naturally know a lot about you, including things that you yourself don’t even remember, right?
  • Apparently Bitty once faceplanted into a pie because he was so tired after hockey practice and baking
  • “Does that count as a fine if Bitty is the one who wrecks a pie???”
  • “Y’all are losing your pie privileges”
  • Oh and Bitty has already come out to them. Due to their cultural background and senses, Bitty knew that they were very likely to accept him but he was still so scared as they were very important to him
  • They welcomed him with open arms, of course. “Thank you for telling us. And we won’t say anything to anyone without your consent. We are always in your corner, mate”
  • They heard Eric talking about his bf with so much love and they are so happy for him
  • They did meet Jack (over Skype) during their visit, and Jack was his awkward self at first, but the hyper twins could do anything and soon they were exchanging embarrassing stories about Bitty
  • “Bless your chirpy little hearts”
  • Just, although there are so many uncertainties, and Bitty is so afraid of the outcome of coming out to his family, he always knows that at least part of his family will always be in his corner, even though they are far, far away and cannot do much other than verbal support
leonard snart cares so much about jax omg

okay like seriously you guys i can’t believe i have to make this post but like i’m gonna

so here are some cold hard facts

-in the pilot (ep1), leonard is the one who makes jax stay behind on the ship; “i said i’d take care of you” already in big-brother mode honey? really?

-in blood ties (ep3), leonard tells jax about his father, with barely any prompting. he is honest, and there is nothing that he gains from telling jax that his father was an abusive piece of shit. n o t h i n g. all he gets? jax probably realizing that there’s more to leonard than meets the eye. maybe a bit of sympathy. 

-in white knights (ep4), jax gets injured. leonard is on the bridge with raymond, and the second jax limps onto the bridge with blood on his shirt, leonard’s entire demeanor changes. his face falls, his posture changes to be more attentive and less *sultry lurking*. he looks PISSED. he looks like “who the fuck hurt jax i’m gonna murder them immediately.” then he leaves the bridge. why? did he accidentally show a feeling? idk man you tell me i’m not a mind-reader here.

-in night of the hawk (ep8), first of all, look at leonard’s face when they realize jax was turned into the monster thingy HE IS IN PAIN OKAY THAT IS LIKE THE SAME LOOK HE JUST GAVE MICK WHEN HE ABANDONED HIM?? LIKE?? HOW CAN YOU LOOK AT THAT AND THINK LEONARD DOESN’T CARE ABOUT JAX?? 

“Jax, don’t make me do this!” okay like damn leonard have MORE FEELINGS about this situation okay thanks

jax claws at leonard and instead of leonard retaliating, he shoots at the pipe and runs away okay cool

they run into jax again, jax swipes at him again, and he L E A P S back and like holds up his hand? like calming? like i know jax just knocked your gun out but like it’s a calming stance not a fighting stance honey you know jax has no idea who you and stein are right now b u t there’s probably something more effective you could’ve done but he doesn’t want to hurt jax seriouslyyyy

leonard lurking over jax in the med-bay looking so concerned like damn 

“let’s not get sentimental. another minute and things may have gone very differently” okay honey sure you were going to just switch it up that quickly after being on the defensive for the entire time and just try to kick his ass uh-huh i absolutely believe you

“after last night i know enough about monsters to know that you’re not one” “stop i’m getting misty-eyed” LEONARD YOU ARE THE KING OF DEFLECTIONS OH MY GOD the body language here, he’s curled up into himself, and jax apologizes and he struts forward, back to appearing confident and in control

-in magnificent eight (ep11), when jax gets taken by the stillwater gang, the first person to comment is leonard “NOT WITHOUT JAX” snart

“the town is still in danger” “SO IS THE KID” okay but leonard doesn’t care about jax not even a little bit okay sure

-in river of time (ep14), leonard is just. so pissed. at rip. about jax getting his ass kicked by the time drive and those side effects and HE LITERALLY PACES IN THE MED BAY AND THEN HE SAYS “you deserve better” 



-in conclusion, leonard snart thinks of jax as a little brother, cares about him so very, very much, and would probably die for him or at least murder a whole bunch of people for him

Kpop as korean drama characters

Warning: Cancerous content. 

YG: The wealthy ass chaebol leader. Pretty cool but stern. His first wife died and he married SM.

Big Bang, 2ne1: Eldest children. Successful and popular but 2ne1 ditched home after finding out that her father had an affair with Bighit. Big Bang is still popz.
iKON: Grew up without parental love because his mom died and YG was too detached from the world to take care of him. Looks up to big brother Big Bang a lot. Generally cool kid but is rash and sometimes talks without thinking.
Winner: Second youngest in the YG fam and is the third child of YG and SM. He doesn’t share a lot of hip hop swag soul like his YG pureblooded siblings and is bullied by iKON occasionally. Just wants to be friends with others. Honestly the sweetest kid in YG’s fam.
Black Pink: Baby girl. Just born. Already has a lot of her father’s swag and her mom’s fierceness and the public’s adoration.

SM: The bitchy wife of YG. Lives for drama but denies orchestrating them. Started out righteous but burst a nerve when her husband died and became a little cray with the handling of her following children. 

Super Junior, SNSD: Majorly successful children from SM’s first marriage. Currently helping out mom with the company but SNSD fell out with mom some time before. Suju had childhood trauma but is fine now.
SHINee, f(x): Twins born after their biological father died. SM got crazy while raising them. Fortunately, none suffered psychological trauma. f(x) met some problems through her teenage years and ran away for a while. SHINee could be Winner’s true older brother in another universe.
EXO: The first child SM and YG had together. He has his dad’s hip hop skills and mom’s good voice. Good looking. But because of the extreme attention the media pays to him, he become introverted and quite shy. The media and his own mom only twists his image to a cold one but honestly, he just wants to make friends. (That BTS seems like a nice dongsaeng but screaming girls don’t allow him to approach him)
Red Velvet: Everybody hated her at first and honestly she hated herself but her mom for once told her she was the best daughter she ever had and she changed herself. Now the public loves her. Bubbly and cool.
NCT: Second youngest child of SM and YG. He takes more of YG than SM this time. Publicly famous but no one actually bothers about him. Has too many hidden talents. Mom can’t handle any more kids.

JYP: The childhood sweetheart of YG but they never got married because JYP was too poor at that time. Quite a peaceful and happy family, away from the drama.

Wonder Girls: Married and happy.
Miss A: Had some familial insecurites but is now happy.
GOT7: Cool, happy go lucky, plenty talented and sometimes too high. Dabs as his past time. Enjoys a good deal of popularity now. Attended the same schools as BTS and EXO. Everybody likes him, really.
Twice: Everybody loves her. Really really adorable. Popular the moment she was born. T.T XD :3

Domestic Headcanons

Have some painfully domestic headcanons… 

Everyone in the castle clearly shaves. Imagine Pidge sitting on a bench trying to shave her legs getting frustrated by the fact that the space raisor she’s using is cutting her now and then and Lance and Keith turning their attention to her and wincing in sympathy when they realize she’s going with the grain instead of against. Lance taking on the roll of big brother and shaking his head sitting down beside her. Keith getting a comical show out of the corner of his eye as he teaches the youngest paladin the way women are suppose to shave. Keith idly commenting on how it’s strange Lance would know that. Lance firing back how he has sisters, but then also admitting to shaving his underarms because why not? Hunk casually joining the fray looking at them all and telling them they’ll all weird as heck and they’re the best weirdos he’s ever known. Then telling them they have wax and why shave when you can wax? 

Pidge: Wait so I’m suppose to pull the razor toward me?
Lance: Yeeees. 
Pidge: That makes way more sense.
Hunk: Or you could just wax.
Pidge: No thanks I like having skin.
Keith: I’m with Pidge on this. Question is what are you waxing? You know what, forget I asked. I don’t want to know.

Besides Hunk, other paladins do know how to cook. They just know how to cook differently. Pidge likes to improvise and sticks to cold dishes that utilize fruits and vegetables. She’s not a vegetarian per se as space doesn’t allow her that choice, however, it’s convenient not to have to cook. Keith is proficient with fish and stew related dishes. Though he’s known for catching any old thing deboning it and frying it. You might be eating space rat, but you’d never known because he know’s how to make it look appealing. Years in the desert will do that for a man. Lance is the king of all things tapas. Orderves and fancy little square cubes of cheese and the like. Also spices the man can spice anything just right. He flocks to light snacks and prepping them while a little time consuming is hella rewarding when people tell him how pretty it looks. Shiro bless the man knows how to make a solid hoagie! Bow down to the mightiest of all sandwiches as this man is gonna blow your socks off with the most stacked thing you’d ever seen. Though he’s known for his subs as well. If it’s a sandwich he probably influenced it somehow. He’s also got his special sauce Hunk can’t even place. Now that’s something! 

Hunk: Is that … a tail?
Keith: It’s edible. 
Lance: Well then uhm I’m just gonna leave this here.
Pidge: Did that just move?
Keith: Come on, I cooked it. It’s dead.
Hunk: Y’all ain’t allowed near the kitchen anymore.
Pidge: Hey you never even tried my food don’t ban me!

Sick days
Each of the paladins have their own methodology to curing what hurts most. Shiro’s preferable to getting those electrolytes up. Tons of sleep and ordering bed rest whether you want it or not. Keith’s a little less hands on, you might not see him while you’re sick. In fact he might be more scarce, but when you’re not looking tissue boxes, or items requested will arrive while you’re not looking. He slips in and out like a ninja posing as a nurse. You’ll even find a scribbled get well note somewhere by your bedside. Pidge is a germaphobe. If you thought keith was missing Pidge is nonexistent. She’ll send someone else in her stead with soup or tissues whatever the person needs. She’ll lend a tablet/communicator to the person so they can stay in touch, but under no circumstances is she going in there to get whatever you got going on. Hunk’s got your back, he’s there for you with soup, he’s the man making most the soup. Soup cures everything, if not that then a heating pad. Depending on what you need being an engineer helps too because he’s able to come up with some pretty soothing techniques or devices to work out whatever ales. Lance is the most compassionate, which is saying something considering how hands on Hunk is. He too will concoct foods to mend the ill although most are traditional recipes from his grandmother. He goes the extra step by giving shoulder rubs, back massages, or just sitting by your bed side and reassuring you you’re not dying from the plague. 

Keith: Is this suppose to make my throat burn more? Also why am I so itchy?
Lance: That means it’s working.
Hunk: Uh, Lance?
Pidge: Pretty sure that means he’s allergic.
Lance: I’m so sorry.
Keith: [Too sick to even be angry.]
Pidge: Come on, healing pod for you now. Ew… sweaty. [Trying not touch touch exposed skin]

Laundry Day
Laundry day is a bit awkward for everyone. Many a time underwear and socks have been swapped out. Keith often finds his socks mismatched with Lance’s. It use to frustrated him to no end, but at this point he’s conceded defeat and just accepts the hand the universe has dealt him. Lance often finds his shirts getting mixed in with Pidge’s. He’s still not entirely sure how their clothes get mixed up with one another where as with his socks he’s pretty much had it with Keith. Though he realizes Keith seems fairly upset about the turn out too. For Pidge and Allura there’s one thing they hate most. Bra swapping, it’s unintentional and has lead to some fairly awkward conversations when one or the other has realized the bra they’re sporting is not theirs, but in fact is their teammates. The least favorite occassion was when all their pantie’s were bleached out. This resulted in Pidge giving up and going with boxers. The castle had a set of the smallest ones, no one questions it anymore when they pop up in the wash they know whose they are. Often Shiro was the one in charge of folding most of the clothes alongside Coran. It’s a thankless job, but oddly rewarding. It’s just mundan but interactive enough to keep his mind from wandering into dark subjects. With Shiro out of the picture laundry sorting has fallen onto most everyone and they get together on one day out of the week and quietly sort through clothes. The occasional “I think I got your sock,” and “this is yours” is muttered amongst the group. It has some how become a training exercise as sock fights are now officially a thing. It’s a fun way to unwind, but often resorts in Coran telling them to be serious when he walks in on someone wearing undergarments on their head nominated as Lord of the Laundry.

Pidge: I dub the Lord of Laundry winner of this week’s sock fight. 
Lance: Did you just put your bra on my head?
Pidge: Naw, it’s Allura’s. [Smug grin.]
Lance: WHAT?! [Tosses it off lighting fast.]
Pidge: I was kidding, it was Hunk’s.
Hunk: Fuck you guys.

“Y/N…Dean, Breakfast” Sam called from the kitchen. You opened your heavy eyes and sat up quickly. However, a little too quickly as you received both a head rush and cramp creeping up your calf. You flopped back on your bed and twisted around in pain especially from the cramp whilst your eyes squeezed shut. You rubbed your head with one hand and massaged your calf with the other.

Finally, when both subsided you slowly got up again, with your head still throbbing at the temples. You pulled your bed blanket over your shoulders and wrapped it around your shivering body as sweat rolled down your forehead. You shuffled from your room and lightly crashed into the walls whilst you stumbled towards the kitchen. “Out the way squirt!” Dean yelled from behind you. You only had time to look back at him and see the large childish smile brimming on his face before he bowled you over in the narrow hallway. Dean kept running to the kitchen whereas you fell to the ground quite easily in your fragile state. You rolled your eyes at your eldest brother before gingerly getting back and heading towards the kitchen.

You came to the kitchen where the usual mouth-watering smell of eggs and bacon was present. However now these smells made you feel dizzy and your stomach seemed to be doing somersaults. “There you are” Sam looked up and smiled when you entered, “You better hurry or Dean will eat your breakfast”. Sam looked fresh faced and in a light grey T-shirt whilst Dean was hunched over his plate with his mouth full whilst wearing a black short sleeved top. You shuffled over to your brothers, still cocooned in your blanket and slowly lifted yourself onto the bar stool, “Dean can have it…I don’t feel too good” you mumbled. Dean’s eyes lit up whilst he pulled you breakfast over to him and happily began to wolf down your bacon.
Sam clicked into big brother mode and walked around to you with a slight worried expression painted on his face, “Yeah I’ll agree with you there bug, you don’t look to peachy” he sighed. He hated seeing you anything other than your normal happy self. He placed his hands lightly around the top of your throat and under your chin, your head lolled in Sam’s hands. The lights were too bright and Dean was eating too loudly and it all made you feel uncomfortable and dizzy. Maybe you should have just stayed in bed.

[Masterlist] [Guideline]

Sam hates this. He hates it so much. One minute, he’s fine. He really, really is. He drives, he hunts, he takes care of his stubborn, emotionally obstinate big brother – all the usual things. But then, seemingly out of nowhere – not in blood spattered rooms with a weapon in his hand, not when they’re dragging hacked up bodies outside to burn – he’ll be doing something mundane – dusting in the library, Dean’s dishes from earlier – and it sneaks up on him.

He’s putting on a pot of coffee to fuel some late night research and nearly drops the carafe, narrowly setting it on the hotplate as his hands start to shake violently. He clenches his teeth desperately and tries to fight the way his chest is starting to heave, his breath coming in short, almost-gasps. He shakes his head and looks for the nearest chair, the tremor spreading throughout his body and his head getting light.

“F-fuck,” he grits out, stuttering. He gets to the kitchen table, dropping his forearms down onto it to steady and catch himself as he drops heavily into the chair, sprawling awkwardly as his knees give out. “G-god dam-dammit.”

He leans forward on the table, arms a cradle for his head, and he tries to breathe. Everything is shaking violently and he feels disconnected except for the tightening in his chest, the growing ache behind his ribs. 

Lucifer hasn’t been in their home for months and Toni hasn’t been in his head for weeks but this still keeps happening. He’s been good, generally, and he means it when he tells Dean he’s doing okay, but this shit makes it harder. He hates it. Sam can feel it getting away from him, the pain swelling and his breath impossibly hard to catch, but at least if he blacks out he’ll just slump over the table. 

Fuck,” he curses again, and angrily pounds his fist on the table. His eyes burn even though he steadfastly keeps them shut. His cheeks are still wet with tears that he ignores.

“Sam– Sammy, hey,” Dean’s voice is mercifully louder than the hammering of Sam’s heart in his ears and Sam zeroes in on it, the sound of his brother’s now heavy, fast footfalls from the hallway to where he’s trapped by his goddamn panic attack at the table. Dean’s hand is on him next, on his shoulder and then sliding up to cup the back of his head. Dean crouches on the ground and leans in close, his other hand covering the fist Sam slammed on the table.

“Hey, just breathe, baby,” he coos, nosing in along Sam’s ear. “Just breathe, it’s gonna be alright. I’m here, I got ya.” He kisses the side of Sam’s face and then breathes, warm and slow against Sam’s ear, giving him something to follow along to. His fingers rub at the nape of Sam’s neck and hold onto his shaking hand, and, at first, Sam can’t help crying a little harder. 

He hates that Dean sees him like this, that this is what his brother must be thinking about when he asks how Sam is feeling every morning, but he almost hates even more how much it helps, how much he desperately needs Dean; he’ll always be Dean’s little brother. If it weren’t for Dean to reign him in, Sam isn’t sure how long he’d be stuck here, crippled by his body that refuses to let him forget his most recent traumas, no matter how ready Sam is to let them fade in with all the rest. 

“Shh, Sammy, sweetheart, shh,” Dean murmurs, petting his hair back now. Dean’s touch is an anchor for him and his voice centres him. Sam takes in as a deep a breath as he can force, still shuddering, and exhales slowly. “That’s it, easy now. In and out, baby.”

Sam isn’t really sure how long it takes, how long they’re like that, Dean crouched despite the way his bad knee must be protesting, his hands and voice working to soothe his sometimes-broken little brother. By the time Sam is breathing steady and the pain is gone, the shaking has passed and the tears on his face are dry and a little itchy, Sam’s panic is replaced with a familiar guilt heavy in his gut. He sniffles and turns his face where his forehead is still on his left forearm so he can look at his big brother.

Dean’s eyes are a little glassy, his pretty lashes a little darker than usual – a little wet – but his cheeks are dry and his expression is soft like Sam has only ever seen it for him. Dean tucks back some of Sam’s hair out of his face and gives him a small smile. Sam bites his lip.

“Dean, I– I’m–”

Dean shakes his head, sighing a little, and leans in to kiss Sam, make him shush. “Don’t, Sam. Just, don’t. It’s okay. I know you’re okay.” 

Sam can’t help but smile at his brother. They don’t say a lot – especially Dean – but somehow Dean still says what Sam needs to hear, and he looks at Sam so earnestly that Sam believes it. 

“Thanks, Dean,” Sam whispers, sitting up and reaching for his brother’s face with both hands to kiss him properly. Dean’s hands find their way on top of Sam’s and Dean leans into the kiss a moment before breaking it and groaning, looking at Sam ruefully.

“I don’t know about you, but I’m too old to be in this position this long,” he grumbles, standing up with several loud pops and cracks of his knees that make Sam wince sympathetically. Sam is about to try to apologize again when Dean interrupts him. “I could go for some scotch, a way more comfortable chair, and maybe a lap full of little brother. C’mon, Sammy.”

He holds his hand out for Sam to take, eyebrow raised expectantly, and Sam huffs a small laugh before getting up, threading their fingers together, and following Dean into the library.
