they were always p much married

I’m sorry, I just keep on thinking about a Jeeves and Wooster modern AU and I need to share my feelings soooooooo…..

The millennial Drones would all have their livelihood/passions/income revolve around social media, since that’s the modern equivalent of the no-good-lazy-spoiled-kids-who-won’t-get-a-proper-job-like-their-parents trope. Like, Gussie Fink-Nottle has an instagram, tumblr and facebook account for every single one of his newts, Tuppy Glossop’s a food blogger etc. Gentlemens’ clubs aren’t really a thing for the younger set, so their meeting place is a pub NAMED The Drones, where they socialise and loaf about, sharing selfies and memes and other no-good-lazy-millenial stuff.

Bertie would be big on Youtube and Vine, known for quirky music, comedy and anecdotes, sort of a mix of Phil Lester and Jon Cozart. He’d perform the ludicrous pop songs of today as well as musical theatre - not only Lin-Manuel Miranda and Disney tunes but WELL LEGIT Gershwin and Berlin and`Porter. His friends would all ask him to sing Rat Pack standards at their weddings which he gladly does pro bono.

Jeeves would have gotten himself a scholarship to Cambridge (reading law and philosophy) and wound up as a solicitor, since his calling is basically solving other peoples’ problems and disputes. He would earn himself a reputation as the best of the best and be sought after by peers of the realm and CEOs of large companies for Delicate Matters. Unlike Bertie, who takes to this era like a thingummy to water, Jeeves is still something of an anachronism: impeccable old-fashioned manners, formal speech for all occasions (he even calls the cashier at Pret-A-Manger ‘madam’), and never goes out in public without wearing a button-up shirt & necktie. He has typical Generation Xer stand-offish cynicism, deftly packaged in dapper-as-fuck tactfulness.

I can imagine Bertie, having just gotten over his breakup with Ginger (the cad left him for Magnolia), would meet Jeeves whilst house-sitting for one of the Drones in some fashionable Zone 1 / 2 neighborhood (say Chelsea or Fulham). Jeeves has the flat across the hall and Bertie runs into him while trying to take out the rubbish bins (and failing). Jeeves, of course, effortlessly sets everything to rights, and perceiving how clueless Bertie is in day-to-day maintenance of a household, comes over every day to assist him (and not because Bertie is the most adorable wide-eyed cherub of a twink he’s ever seen - perish the thought!)

As Bertie is a magnet for drama, the neighbours in the building and his fellow Drones inevitably fall upon him with all of their problems - some involving romance, but others involving compromising photos going viral, public gaffes where politically incorrect remarks are uttered, etc. Jeeves and Bertie schlep around modern-day London having light-hearted adventures solving all of these problems. Bertie regales his subscribers with the stories of these adventures, going on and on about how wonderful Jeeves is. In the general on-line community, comparisons are drawn between Bertie’s vlog and the blog belong to the boyfriend of that ‘Hat Detective’ on Baker St.

When the time comes for Bertie to leave the flat he was caretaking, he coyly asks Jeeves if he would take Bertie on as a client at his practice. Jeeves refuses, stating that his principles forbid him to date anyone he’s professionally involved with. It takes Bertie half a day to figure out that Jeeves has asked him out.

From there it’s fluff and music and roses and bickering. They get their flat together in Mayfair and Jeeves feels no reserve about scolding Bertie for leaving bath towels on the floor and dirty dishes in the sink. His sweet otherwordly Bertram is a slovenly man-child who he manages to train. Somewhat. Eventually a kitten is adopted because REG HE’S SO CUTE HE FOLLOWED ME HOME LOOK AT HIS LITTLE FACE CAN WE GO DOWN TO BATTERSEA AND GET HIM A PLAYMATE OH PLEEEEASE I’LL PROMISE TO CLEAN THE LITTER TRAY AND GIVE YOU HEAD WHENEVER YOU WANT IT

Also he once tried to convince Jeeves to come with him to the Brinkley Court Halloween Party dressed in drag as Elphaba and Glinda, but Jeeves “mixed up “ the order to the online costume shop, so they went in Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff robes instead.

They spend rainy weekends playing the piano and cooking and exchanging bants and bargaining about fashion choices and having fantastic sex. To their friends they are ‘Bertie and Reg’ and they are like, omigod, the cutest couple eveerrrr, ikr

Aunt Dahlia is the P-Flag auntie, having been the first person that Bertie came out to. She has always hoped that her young blot will find a good man who can keep him in check (Jeeves is heaven sent to her), while Agatha is the homophbic aunt.

AGATHA: Bertie. You must marry and have children.

BERTIE: For the thousandth time, Aunt Agatha, I’m gay. As much as you wish otherwise, that Lord Arran fellow assured the Empire’s assent of my sexual orientation while you were still in knee socks and fawning over Cliff Richard.

AGATHA: It is a childish phase. It will pass once I find a woman of good breeding who can mould you.

BERTIE: Aunt Agatha–

AGATHA: Mould. You.

She lives in Belgravia and despises smartphones.

Thankfully the 21st Century edition of The Code of The Woosters impels Bertie to tell any prospective female that being affianced to him is inadvisable for multiple reasons.

Also Lady Florence is an SJW hipster and political lesbian who lives in Shoreditch with her girlfriend Honoria. She takes every opportunity to criticise Bertie for drinking sugary Starbucks lattes and wearing T shirts with licensed cartoon characters on them. Bertie often wonders why the hell he’s friends with her.

Bertie’s other queer friends are Bingo (the ultimate panromantic), Catsmeat (just your average theatre geek with a libido the size of Soho) and cousin Eustace (not so much a friend as a tagalong, always getting suspended for hitting on his professors). They sometimes go to G-A-Y, where they are consistently ignored by all the cool clubbers, opting to drink and watch drag shows and throw beer nuts at each other. Marion Wardour is Bertie’s gal pal and sometimes she comes along too, with the aim of hooking up with bi guys (and occasionally bi girls). Otherwise, she’s off singing in fringe musicals.

Spode is a member of UKIP and his wife Madeleine writes awful Winnie the Pooh fanfiction.

Just started rewatching Person of Interest

And it’s so good so far. 

 Season One Perks: 

 Taraji P Henson 

 People of Color existing in New York (unlike that other show *cough cough CSI New York with only 10 poc ever cough cough*) 

 Jim Caviezel beating up bad guys while being super hot

 Micheal Emerson hacking computers and being super hot 

 Taraji P Henson being badass while kicking ass, being the best character (and I want marry her tbh) 

 It has POC that aren’t always thugs and actually have character 

 Cool mother son relationship 

 One of the shows closer to actually addressing how POC are treated in the criminal justice system

Taraji P Henson 

 The audio mixing is A+. The non diegetic and diegetic sound is so good, like I’m crying. Also the soundtrack is so good! So high quality. 

The cinematography is so good. It’s one of the shows were one can really see tv becoming an art form. There’s so much care taken to create the style.

 Black woman detective who is so lovely and wants to do the right thing who and who is now on Empire™ 

 Jim Caviezel flashing his award winning smile 

 A show about two dudes fighting the Man™ 

 A show about people helping other people because we all have to look out for 

each other Let’s see if this show lets me down (hope not)

my mom & dad met when my mom was 18, and started dating right away, and were like madly in love & still are! they are rlly rlly in love & spent almost all of college living together & got married as soon as my mom graduated! so sometimes I feel weird bc I’m 20 and haven’t met anyone I wanna marry or even anyone I rlly wanna date, and I always assumed my life would be Just Like My Moms (my mom is really super happy and has a really happy marriage and doesn’t work and just raised me & my brother & had so much fun w us and is such a delightful person) and now it’s becoming p clear that I am not my mom and I don’t rlly think I’ll ever get married! which made me feel sad, but I was talking to my mom and she was like “tbh I’m so jealous of the healthy female friendships you have! I’ve basically never been single since like 13 and I’ve never been good at developing and maintaining female friendships and it’s rlly hard and I struggle even now with it a lot and I would love yr advice” and I was like dang… that’s actually a good point! like obviously there’s no right or wrong way to live yr life, u just have to do what works best for u, but just because I’m missing 1 tiny thing which is the ability to develop meaningful healthy romantic relationships doesn’t mean that I’m at all lonely or that I can’t connect w people in meaningful ways! like I have SO MUCH love in my life! it’s weird that I keep looking at ppl who are in serious relationships and feeling that they are the ones who have their sh*t together & I’m like a massive failure. I’m sure a lot of ppl in serious relationships are super happy and that’s cool and I love it! but I’m also genuinely very happy, and I only ever feel hurt at the absence of romance when I’m looking at my life in COMPARISON to other ppl, not when I’m looking at my life itself! I have tons of friends who I really feel will be my lifelong friends. I’m productive and creative and surprisingly well-adjusted! idk if this makes sense to anyone else. it’s kinda a cliche but it’s tru that “no one has it all” and I straight up need to stop holding my life up against other ppls and trying to quantify the things we have or don’t have because… everyone is very very different and it is incredibly unproductive and unhealthy for me to storm around and get my feelings hurt over what I don’t have ? especially when I rlly only like the Concept of a relationship, but in practice I don’t think it would be a good thing for me at this point in my life at ALL and I don’t particularly think I’ll ever want it? what I’m saying is just bc I’m not just like my mom doesn’t mean I don’t have a ton of love in my life & also doesn’t mean I can’t live a happy life bc there are hundreds of different ways to live happy lives and there’s no one path or formula that I should be following! god only knows why I just put this all together but I’m glad I did I feel very peaceful and better now

I always thought the scene in the 2005 version of Pride and Prejudice where Bingley visits Jane while she's sick in bed was unbelievable. I don't know what the exact rules etiquette were at the time on that but I always felt it was something the other characters would view as wildly inappropriate (i.e. visiting a lady pretty much unannounced while said lady is in bed with only a nightgown on). What do you think?

Hi, sorry for a late answer, I’m a bit busy with uni atm.

Yeah, I always thought that scene was kinda weird too. I think P&P is happening during Regency period and as far as I know, young women weren’t supposed to even go out in public without a chaperone (preferably a married one) let alone spend time with a young man. In their bedroom. In a nightgown. In his house. With only their younger sister there to keep them company. Nope.

But P&P doesn’t strictly follow etiquette. I mean Lizzie walks alone all the time, Jane rides alone, the sisters are all out in society at once even thought the oldest ones are not yet married, no governesses, no chaperones… Especially 2005 version one; we see them fight and scream at each other, walking alone in town, jumping around, squealing, being alone with Mr Wickham under a tree (??)… I mean lady Catherine would probably have a coronary. I guess that’s actually why I love this version so much. They really seem like girls in their teens and early twenties to me :3

Even considering all that, the scene you’re talking about is kinda extreme. I mean he barely knocks! However, I’m willing to forgive because look at this cutie!!

Please tell us more of this five year remission kiss

ok so yknow how in how I met your mother lily is super happily married but lowkey wants to make out w Robin all the time that is p much octavia w lexa like

she & lincoln are rly happy she’s so in love & clarke & octavia made out a bunch the summer they were fourteen bc hello sexuality & they were both safe so octavia already knows how clarke kisses it honestly was fine just not super impressive (clarke is offended by this every time)

but like octavia watches lexa kiss clarke (all the time unfortunately bc they’re always gross sappy kissing) & lexa kisses clarke like the fucking world is abt the end literally every time it’s almost unnerving & it’s rly endearing but also lexa’s so hot? like octavia thinks she’s so hot? lololol so

yeah she says All The Time like lexa hey wanna make out & absolutely not no lexa is happy w clarke no so this is all through college like probably once a week or so octavia asks lexa & she’s joking every time but also she’d be down for it if lexa said yes Lincoln & clarke think it’s rly funny bc in reality lexa & octavia are the last people on earth who would ever Ever cheat

so anyway summer after college rolls around & it’s Octavia’s five years of remission!! which is a huge milestone!! so they have a little party & then it’s just the four of them & everyone had gotten octavia presents other than clarke & lexa but they’re like okay octavia we were thinking of smth to get you & tbh you already have so much shit Lincoln we think she might be a hoarder but we decided the best gift is not a material good it’s that, if you want, you get to make out w lexa & everyone has already agreed

octavia is literally so happy like this day has finally come like WOW she gets a little nervous? which is embarrassing bc lexa has only kissed clarke so it’s not like she’s gonna have a lot of competition but still so octavia helps lexa to her feet like they’re standing in the middle of abby’s living room & lexa’s like ok just yknow go for it whenever like she’s so awkward & so cute but it’s actually so funny & she recognizes that so octavia is like aLRIGHT & kisses lexa who is actually a lovely kisser & v different than Lincoln but it’s also hilarious bc firstly lexa has no idea where to put her hands so they’re just kinda v respectfully on Octavia’s waist it’s so cute Octavia’s are in lexa’s hair like she’s getting her money’s worth lol

but after abt a minute octavia just FEELS the awkwardness like SEEPING out of lexa lol like lexa is a wonderful kisser it’s sort of strange bc she’s rly soft & slow & kisses with this old ache but like she’s so awkward oh my god

so octavia pulls back & smiles & kisses lexa’s cheek & then hugs her rly tight & says thank you softly & lexa nods bc it’s actually p cute they met bc octavia had cancer & so they’ve always had a sweet friendship like a v cool one that had serious moments but yeah lexa laughs& is like you’re welcome I hope that was ok & honestly it was way better than ok & octavia tells her that & then is like clarke you’re lucky despite the fact that lexa is a little too sappy for me lol

btw it’s never weird or anything like lexa is so incredibly in love w clarke & Lincoln & octavia are just rly rly solid so it’s always funny & octavia literally was so happy it was the best present
