I was all geared up to smash the buy now button with these two when I noticed the descriptions (esp the red dress) don’t match the pictures. So I’m gonna hold off or no telling what I would actually end up with…
-After a lengthy medical leave, I have once more donned my red and khaki and returned to my rightful place at the register. I find the store much the same as it always was. An unsettlingly muggy climate. The aisles, bustling with guests from every demographic, all united in the common pursuit of the best deals. An inescapable air of mystery and ripe infant following wherever you go. It is good to be back.
-A man in his fifties returned twenty-five unopened Hot Wheels cars. I wish that I know what could have gone so, so very wrong.
-An elderly pair of women purchase Minions toothpaste, a Minions toothbrush, and a Minions board game. Their passion leaves me certain that they are not gifts. Their choice of passion leaves me wondering one thing: Why?
-I listened on as a trio of grade school girls gathered to discuss having watched the notoriously family-friendly smash hit, Deadpool. At first, I believed them to be bluffing, however they went into such detail that I came to realize that the nine year-olds were actual consumers of this movie. The three have proven themselves to possess only the hardest of cores and are not to be trifled with.
-A young man came through sporting a shirt which showed him to be a member of the local hammer wrestling team. I have never heard of any such sport, but if it is at all like how it sounds, I am very interested.
-The Hot Wheels man approached my lane to purchase more of the same cars he had just returned. He only picked up half as many cars this time around, however. This man has been hurt before, so I am glad to see him being careful moving forward.
-Rather than the normal affirmative of “Okey-dokey,” a woman crafted her own, replying to her total with a confident, “Obi-Kobe.” Once I establish my Hammer Wrestling team, I have now been inspired to start up a Jedi Basketball club.
-A toddler screamed and cried and kicked and fought when the ball he had been clutching, a blue orb much larger than he himself, was taken away. The tyke refused to calm down until it was once again safely in his keeping. I am glad to see such a wise child, so proficient at prioritizing. After all, it is never too early to learn that ball is life.
i’ve been bitten by the zutara bug once more so heres some headcanons no one asked for
if firelord zuko and firelady katara cant solve an issue diplomatically, they’ll both sneak out at night tsr ninja-style and solved the problem the old fashioned way. eventually when their kids get older they find out and also have to be included
katara often makes tea with iroh, who claims that tea tastes best when she’s involved bending the water to flatter her (i can totally see iroh lowkey flirting with her to piss zuko off tho)
for katara’s first birthday with zuko, he spends hours personally searching the fire palace’s ancient vaults and finds Southern waterbending scrolls to give her
eating together. sparring together. bathing together
also zuko is very invested in Southern heritage and culture and preserving and encouraging it even though they’re in the fire nation. he hires water tribe staff and advisors, and introduces new sections on the school curriculum to teach about all nations, customs and cultures. they even celebrate water tribe festivals together and honour their gods
of course they feed the turtle ducks together
as fire lady, katara has a massive role in politics, campaigning for the rights of marginalised people within the fire nation and beyond, and is a catalyst for seismic social change instead of just being the avatars gf lol im not salty
growing up in the rural, patriarchal South, katara never quite gets used to royal life and its perks, and is too polite to the servants to the point of awkwardness, much to the other royals’ amusement
she advocates for them getting pets. soon, the fire palace is brought alive by the pitter-patter of furry feet, and iroh claims it has never been better since her arrival
when katara is pregnant, zuko won’t let her lift a finger and frets constantly about the baby
katara tries smoking after being teased mercilessly by her husband for being uncultured. it’s the first and last time she smokes
their children wear blue and red, as well as purple. the royal family are responsible for starting a purple trend in the fire nation
iroh and hakoda are very close and tease their respective children mercilessly
they often double date with other members of the gaang. iroh regularly shows up late to these gatherings with a date of his own
katara loathes fire nation delicacies and introduces more mild, palatable dishes to the kitchen. the multi-cultural palace staff are eternally grateful
katara bemoans the dark décor of the palace and endeavours to make over the fire palace with iroh in zuko’s absence. katara thinks a hint of water tribe blue would brighten the place, as iroh tries to add earth green and air yellow to the palace. in the end, they settle on more windows and gold to replace black as katara bends more ponds in the gardens. she also hires master earthbending florists for the gardens. the palace has never looked more bright or more beautiful
at fire nation only events, katara dons traditional red garb with minimal blue. at multi-cultural gatherings she wears full water tribe regalia to honour her culture, and asks zuko to wear something blue also
they both swear by agni, as well as tui and la
zuko bans agni kais and discourages political marriages, using katara as an example
he always carries a small bottle of water with him just in case katara happens to be without her water skins
when she gets too homesick, he lets her to take time off (even when she refuses to) to waterbend, or visit home. as well as that, he constantly surprises her by having her family over to visit without her knowledge
Can’t stop thinking about a scenario in which Don Mancini is writing an ep for season 4. He’s been tasked with finally writing the all too important first ever Hannigram sex scene. He remembers a conversation with Bryan and feels it is important to note that in bed the two of them like to switch. He receives the script back on his desk the next day with a full page note from Bryan declaring FLIP! I SAID FLIP! in big red block letters. Don Mancini sighs and goes back to work.
Prompto is off to visit Grandpa!Ardyn who kind of creeps him out but he had asked for Prom to visit and he was too kind to say no. He of course donned the red cape that had been a gift from his Grandpa before dropping by the bakery.
Ignis reluctantly made some Tenebraen pies to take with him offering him an escort in the form of his woodsman friend Gladiolus. Prompto declined, he didn’t want to be any trouble and Ignis was left feeling uneasy as he headed on his way.
Halfway there he felt as if someone was watching him and was pretty freaked out to find a wolf waiting when he crested the hill. The wolf introduced itself as Noctis Lucis Caelem and asked him why he wore a cloak of a colour that would draw all of the beasts after him as he walked through the woods.
Noctis himself had already fended off a number of beasts before he decided to question the blonde. Was he looking for trouble? And more importantly - what was that amazing smell coming from the basket?
