taking selfies in claires

The characters from the Professor Layton series say: “We love you!”

I think all of us, at some point in our lives, take comfort in fictional characters, relate to them, and they help us feel better and more at ease with ourselves (this is also slightly related to fictionkin but thats a post for another day….)

with that in mind, i decided to make this post:

Hershel Layton loves you and you’re always welcome to sit down, have a cup of tea and a puzzle with him!

Luke Triton would give anything to put that smile back on your face, and is sending little fluffy puppies over to cheer you up! And cats, and capybaras, and hamsters, and parrots, and rabbits, and……

Flora Reinhold is in the kitchen right now, cooking up all your favorite dishes so that you’ll eat them and feel better! 

Don Paulo is basically ransacking his entire disguise inventory and trying to find the one disguise that will make you laugh. (He’s torn between the Donkey Kong suit and the banana suit……)

Clark and Brenda Triton is running over towards you right now, with hugs to spare, and tons of little souvenirs and artefacts for you to play with!

Clive Dove is coming over with a hairbrush. He knows what you’re going through, and he finds that hairbrushing usually calms people down. It’s what Constance did whenever he cried over his parents….

Anton Herzen wants to remind you that there are things worth continuing to live for, and they’re waiting for you in the future. Also, if you have meds to take, please take them. He knows what it’s like to feel so, so tired and weak.

Randall Ascot gives you a smile. It’s hard for him to do it, but he knows he and you can both smile together.

Desmond Sycamore/Jean Descole is right behind you, about to pounce on you, kidnap you, whisk you off in his cape to a soft chair. He’s gonna play the piano for you and tell you bad jokes in an attempt to cheer you up (he’s been practicing his jokes with Raymond, so he’s feeling confident!)

Dimitri Allen wants to remind you that some things can’t be fixed, and it’s time to move on. It’ll hurt less as time goes on. Trust him.

Emmy Altava wants to take a selfie with you! Smile for the camera!

Claire Foley knows that you can pull through this difficult time. She knows you, and you’re definitely strong enough.

Leon Bronev is crying too hard to hug you, but he wants you to know that you’re so, so, so precious, and so, so, so deserving of all the love in the world.

Clamp Grosky IS ROOTING FOR YOU ALL THE WAY! WITH HIS STRENGTH, HIS COURAGE, HIS MIGHT, AND ALSO THE YARD, HE WILL BE RIGHT BY YOUR SIDE, SUPPORTING YOU AND BEATING UP ALL THE BAD GUYS IN YOUR WAY!

Inspector Chelmey is keeping a sharp eye out for any troublemakers. He’ll take care of you.

Constable Barton is at your elbow, waving a sandwich at you. Remember to eat! SERIOUSLY, REMEMBER TO EAT! Would you like to come have lunch with him? He’s on his lunch break now, so it’s okay!

Alfendi Layton is literally in two minds as to whether to pat you on the shoulder or shout encouragements that sound more like threats. Nevertheless, if someone crosses you, just tell him, and he’ll throw them in jail faster than you can blink.

Lucy Baker is standing at your doorstep, ready to protect you from scary social situations. Afraid to place your order at a restaurant? Just tell her what you want, and she’ll get it for you. Relax. Breathe. You’re okay.

(feel free to add more characters!)
