this is dumb and old

idk why I suddenly thought about this but back when I was still active on deviantart.com in like…2009? I was madly in love with iron man and Robert Downey Jr. like to the point where I had all these magazine cut outs of him on my bedroom wall. Anyways - I guess around that time I found out he had a son who was only a couple years older than me. So I googled him (Indio Downey) and at the time he was 16 and according to my dumb 14 yr old self “super hot omfg XD”. Anyways I honestly cannot remember how this happened but at some point on deviantart.com I was messaged by this stranger claiming to be Indio Downey. And for like maybe 3 days we had this conversation just about like music and art- his dad was not mentioned once (because I was nervous he would find out I was also in love with his dad?) And at first I didn’t believe he was Indio Downey but he sent me all these pics of himself like with a guitar or just like in a basement or his bedroom or what not - photos that I couldn’t find on google (reverse google image search was either not a thing or I didn’t know about it). So yeah I full on believed he was actually Robert Downey Jr’s son who had found me on deviantart.com to discuss art with me (he also showed me drawings he had made). I don’t remember how long I talked to him but eventually we stopped I guess and then I must have actively blocked that memory because it feels so fake to me now? like I know in theory this happened - I got catfished very innocently into believeing robert downey jr’s son had found my deviantart account and really liked my art and wanted to show me his artwork too. nothing ever came of it besides that but like ??????? I truly believed he was real????? and part of me today still believes he was ???

concept: space pirates who sound exactly like regular pirates, except replace all references to “the sea” with “the void”

“aye, the void is a harsh mistress,” the captain said, gazing out the window of her ship into the vast starry expanse. “she’ll take more than she gives, in the end. but those who are called to life in the void don’t know any other way.”

honestly this was just an excuse to draw todoroki in a bomber jacket but hey!! tododeku ice cream date? tododeku ice cream date.

Okay but seriously

It’s been wonderful seeing all the Dad!Gabriel and Dad!Jack ideas going around for when Jesse first joins Blackwatch, but y’all are missing the PRIMEST OF PRIME opportunities here:

Jesse with not one BUT TWO Commander Dads with bad puns, dad jokes, and a whole slew of embarrassing ideas.

Gabriel basically rescues and adopts Jesse from Deadlock

Jack: …well. This is it, Jack.
Jack: you’re a dad now.
Jack: time to be a loving and supporting partner to your husband in this endeavor, and a responsible and warmhearted role model to this poor kid who has had so much go wrong in his young life.
Jack: …
