they weren't cooperating

“I’m sorry for all the craziness.” “I wouldn’t have done it any differently.” 

It’s funny how Alice and Hermione have a complete role reversal from the beginning of the series to the end. We started off with Alice being portrayed as the devil incarnate and Hermione seemed like such a sweet, caring mother. Fast forward to now and we’ve seen that Alice is genuinely trying to be a good Mum and it seems like that’s Hermione’s very last priority (/not a priority at all). What’s interesting is that both of these changes in character seem to correlate with their husbands leaving/coming home. Alice doesn’t start to show her maternal, selfless side until Hal leaves and Hermione changes as soon as she finds out Hiram’s coming home. Even before we find out Hiram’s being released from jail all of Hermione’s worst parenting moments have something to do with him. It’s such a shame that these women have to act a certain way when their husbands are around, seems like they’d be so much happier without them…

In this fucking city, when God gives you a parking spot, you park and say “Thank you.”

If I were to be made a knight,“ said the Wart, staring dreamily into the fire, "I should insist on doing my vigil by myself […] and I should pray to God to let me encounter all the evil in the world in my own person, so that if I conquered there would be none left, and, if I were defeated, I would be the one to suffer for it.”

“That would be extremely presumptuous of you,” said Merlyn, “and you would be conquered, and you would suffer for it.”


“I shouldn’t mind.”


“Wouldn’t you? Wait till it happens and see.

Friodshop is just the greatest thing on this planet rn (Other than you and this BillDip Au tho 😉)

Thanks! I’m really glad you’re enjoying my silly writes.

That said, have some Friodshop for your troubles.


Bill rolls his eye so hard he thinks it might fall out of the socket. Which would be neat! But also inconvenient, shoving it back into his skull. He jabs his finger back down on the map on the desk. 

“C’mon, old man, you’ve gotta see the potential here. Just wreck up a few other tourist places, then-”

“Hey! Old man? I’m the old man?” Stan straightens up, plants a fist on the table. “This coming from the guy who’s ‘billions of eons’ old?”

“I’m young at heart,” Bill declares lightly, clapping a hand over the place where it should be. Where, thankfully, nobody knows it’s actually there - “While you’re just a wrinkly wreck of decaying flesh.”

“Why you-” Stan shakes a fist, leaning over the table. He grimaces - then slumps back into his seat, rolling his own eyes. “Ah, you’re not worth it.” He frowns at the map. “And maybe you gotta point.”

Bill grins. He always has a point! Good thing Stan gets it. Some of these Pines are too-

Pine Tree shouts something, in the distance, Bill starts at the sound.

“Bill? You’re too quiet, what’s going on?”

“Nothing!” Bill responds, cheerful. “Everything’s A-okay, totally moral, and on the level!”

There’s a long, suspicious silence. Bill listens for a moment. But it doesn’t seem like his human’s coming  closer, so! Free reign to do what he likes. He grins, and claps his hands together. Time to keep planning.

“So! Stanley! I-” Bill frowns, glancing over the shitty suit of his temporary partner in crime, hands still clasped. Stan looks weird. “What?”

Stan snorts. He clears his throat, and looks up, and away.

Bill narrows his eye. “What?” He insists 

“Oh, nothing, nothing,” Stan says. He lifts his hands up, smiling. “But hey, seeing a demon being henpecked is pretty-”

Oh, that’s - Bill slams his hands down on the table, hard. The wood smolders under his palms. This kind of - He can’t  believe - “I am not-”

Bill! Don’t make me come in there!” 

Smoke rises from under Bill’s palms as the fire cuts out. He feels his eye twitch.

And Stan is very, very clearly holding back a laugh. Bill grips the table harder.

One sound outta you,” Bill jabs a finger at Stan, quietly fuming. Friggin’ uncle. He thinks he can be smug, have blackmail? Guess who has more. “And I tell everyone what happened in Vegas back in 87’.”

Stan snorts, waves it off, and still looks too pleased.“Oh, please, like you-”

“Right down to the thing with the car battery,” Bill hisses, eye narrow. “And the hotel room.”

Stan sits up straight, suddenly professional. “So what was it you were saying about the tourist traps.” He tucks a hand over his chin. “What’re you thinking?”

Bill settles back down into his seat, feeling smug.

Bill’s totally going to wreck stuff up in ways Stan couldn’t even imagine, and with this guy around? If they get caught, Bill will have someone to point a finger at before he runs. Let Stan take the blame! He rubs his hands together,  grinning.

This? Should be fun.

- I’ve never had that. It must be a happy thing.

He immediately recognised in Gary Cooper something that was essential to film acting. ‘He gets at it from the inside, from his own clear way of looking at life’, he said in an interview. For the rest of his life he always cited Cooper as the paragon of film acting.  - Charles Laughton: A Difficult Actor - Simon Callow.
