Amélie Lacroix, post-talon. After waking up late in the morning (sleeping in is a luxury talon did not afford her) she makes her way to the kitchen with a blanket draped over her shoulders. she has bedhead and tired blinky sleepy eyes and mumbles a soft bonjour to anyone she passes. her pyjamas are white button-ups with tiny lilac patterns - she picked them herself. she makes herself a coffee, slowly, a nice one with milk and brown sugar, maybe with hot chocolate powder, and maybe a little whipped cream on the top if she’s feeling fancy, and on extra special occasions she’ll even get out her secret box of chocolate sprinkles (just a pinch, for the aesthetic, she says).
she then proceeds to sit on the couch, legs crossed, covered in her blanket, and sips at her coffee, bleary-eyed, sleepy and content. the whipped cream gives her a tiny moustache but she doesn’t notice til much later. she watches birds out the window, quiet and content, thinking about nothing, at peace with the world
yo, if anyone in the dragon age community needs/wants someone to talk to about their wardens/hawkes/inquisitors, whether it to just show them off or bounce ideas off of someone for character development, i’m ya gal, my ask box and im are always open. 👀
something that i really, really hope happens in regards to finn and rey’s relationship in the upcoming films is a huge emphasis on how much FINN means to rey.
because a lot of ugly racists and re/ylos like to say that their relationship is so obviously ~one sided, that finn clearly likes rey but she doesn’t feel as strongly for him (when that’s far from the truth).
so what i REALLY want to see is rey being affectionate towards finn. i want to see her run to him and embrace him, i want to see her laugh at his jokes and look at him like he’s the only thing in the galaxy. i want HER to be the one to say “i love you,” or something along those lines, first- because not only would that be GREAT character development for rey, who has gone so long without having anyone and has finally allowed herself to grow attached to and feel for someone else- but also because it would prove that rey loves finn. it would prove that yes, rey, the white woman protagonist of this trilogy, loves finn, the black man protagonist of this trilogy.
so lucasfilm, please give me a rey who misses finn so much it hurts while she’s away with luke, a rey who cries over him and for him, a rey who is so obviously smitten with this good, brave, incredible man so that nobody can deny that finn is loved by her.
for once, let a black man be the hero; let him “get the girl,” let him be the shining light for those around him- let finn be loved, fiercely and undeniably, so that nobody can deny how important and amazing he is.
Idk if someone has sent this in, but mute!Dean would be a good topic, selective or not.
like, i love the idea of mute!dean.
so like, imagine if you will, after the fire dean doesn’t talk. which is odd because before the fire john and mary could hardly to get the kid to shut up but now, he doesn’t make a sound. like not even when john wakes up in the middle of the night to find dean crying, curled in on himself and sam, he doesn’t make a sound.
for a hot moment, john thinks that it’s just something that dean’s going through. trauma of the fire or something like that and he thought, for just a moment, that dean would wake up in the morning and he would speak again.
except weeks pass, weeks, and dean still hasn’t made a sound and that’s when john gets worried, really worried. he gets the first appointment that he can get with the doctor and takes dean to see him, hoping that their might be some sort of explanation. that maybe it was smoke exhalation or something like that. something medical, something scientific that could explain his sons sudden silence.
the doctor runs all kinds of test, checks dean’s lungs, does this, does that. the doctor explains what he’s doing but honestly it’s all over his pay grade so he just has to watch with worried eyes hoping that there will be an answer.
there isn’t one. that’s ultimately what the doctor says in his own medical sophisticated way. for whatever reason, dean just stopped talking.
the doctor said that this was good news actually because dean could still speak and there would come a moment, when dean was ready, that he would speak. just… the young boy went through a lot and it wasn’t uncommon for someone of his age to block himself off to protect himself.
so john hoped that there would be a morning that dean would wake up and his talkative son would come back but more time passed and dean still didn’t say anything and that hope would slowly fade.
there would be nights when john had a little bit too much to drink and his mind was foggy and he wanted everything to be normal again. he wanted his wife back. he wanted that old house back. he wanted his two sons to grow up together playing ball in the front yard. he wanted dean to speak. was that really too much to ask? to live a normal life?
and sometimes he would yell at dean in these moments of weakness. dean would be seated on the bed, arms wrapped around his legs that were pulled up to his chest, silent tears running down his face and john would beg, he would yell for dean to just speak, dammit. just fucking make a sound.
dean never did.
in the morning, when the alcohol had faded away and john felt like shit and that early morning sun would filter in through the old, grimy motel window, he would turn his head to find dean curled around his baby brother, lips moving, just barely.
the only time that john heard dean speak was when he was speaking with his little brother. and it was never for long and dean’s voice would never be loud. it would be soft murmurs to the top of sam’s head or as they’re sharing the same air.
and that’s just the way it was. dean would talk for his baby brother but no one else.
What if a strain runs into Fushimi and their ability lets the person they've affected hear what the devices around them are saying. (Computers, phones, etc)
Imagine Fushimi gets hit by the Strain power and the first thing he
hears is this weird noise almost like a purr. At first he’s not sure
where it’s coming from, it sounds like it’s nearby but there’s no
sign of a cat or anything else, and the alphabet squad look at him
like he’s hearing things when he mentions it. Fushimi finally
realizes that the sound is coming from his PDA, he wonders if maybe
it got a virus or something and as he’s fiddling with it the PDA
gives this pleased little ’…love you…’ Fushimi almost drops the
damn thing he’s so startled and vaguely disgusted. None of the
alphabet boys claim to have heard that one either and then Doumyouji
runs up to give him a report on the pursuit, PDA in hand. Doumyouji’s
PDA immediately starts whimpering for Fushimi to save it because
Doumyouji uses so much space on dating apps and stupid games and
trash apps that would probably have installed trackers in his phone
if Fushimi hadn’t coded the software Scepter 4 uses himself. That’s
when he starts to realize that he can ‘hear’ anything electronic,
like all the alphabet boys PDAs are suddenly clamoring at him. Kamo’s
likes to talk about all the cute pictures of Kamo’s daughter and also
trade sushi recipes, Akiyama’s and Benzai’s are mercifully silent and
well behaved most of the time but every now and again Akiyama’s makes
a comment about collars and leashes that makes Fushimi really hope
that’s because Akiyama likes animals. Enomoto’s keeps up a steady
stream of chatter about the latest anime movie or video game.
Hidaka’s is perpetually talking about large breasts and Fushimi
himself, Hidaka doesn’t understand why Fushimi keeps glaring at him
all of a sudden. Fushimi’s PDA continues to love him though, because
Fushimi treats it right and gives it so much attention.
So they all head back to Scepter 4 and the drive is a little rough
because the van won’t shut the fuck up about the road conditions. It
doesn’t like Doumyouji driving so Fushimi makes them stop and switch
to Akiyama, the van likes Akiyama a little too much and that
combined with the PDA’s collar comments makes Fushimi kinda side eye
Akiyama a little, poor Akiyama has no idea what he did to make
Fushimi mad and is very flustered about it. Fushimi also learns that
traffic lights are assholes, they keep saying ‘stop’ when the light
is green and 'go’ when it’s red and Fushimi almost makes Akiyama get
them into accidents a few times by asking why he’s not going already
at a red light. Fushimi also ends up with a headache from listening
to all the chatter of everything around them, the cars on the road
and all the phones everywhere. At one point he catches the sound of a
small voice that sounds almost familiar trying to give someone a pep
talk about making up with a friend and he looks outside to see Yata
wandering along the road nearby talking to Kusanagi on his PDA watch.
Fushimi immediately looks away and orders Akiyama to run a red light.
They all get back to headquarters and Fushimi has a splitting
headache but he’s determined to finish his reports anyway. The
vending machine keeps trying to literally sweet talk him into some
nice canned coffee and a candy bar. He stops in his own room for a
minute and immediately everything electronic in there starts with the
purring, his computer is so happy to see him and even the handheld
game system that he hasn’t played in years is making happy puppy
sounds. Fushimi can’t handle the weird electronic inanimate object
affection and goes back to the office to do some reports, it turns
out the computers hate doing paperwork almost as much as the rest of
the force does. But then maybe he overhears one computer making sad
complaining sounds and saying it feels sick, Fushimi roughly shoves
Fuse aside and starts fiddling with the computer, discovering that
there was a complicated computer virus infecting it and Fushimi
immediately quarantines and destroys it. Everyone’s so impressed by
Fushimi’s intuition that he knew the virus was there, Fushimi just
clicks his tongue and tries to ignore the profuse expressions of
thanks from the computer itself.
What do u think Wills favorite movie would be? Favorite book? Favorite pastime? I feel like I don't know my own son. I just wanna know his favorite color in the next season pls suffer bros
oh anon, same same same!!! but here, have some of my completely baseless assumptions about Will, because you so kindly asked. ;)
Will’s favorite movie is An American Werewolf in London. He sees it one weekend when Lonnie is supposed to pick him up to take him to a baseball game. Will sits on the front porch with his baseball cap - one of the only gifts his dad has ever gotten him - pulled low over his eyes and his hands tearing idly at the overgrown grass tickling at his shins. Inside he can hear his mom yelling expletives over the phone, but he tunes it out. An hour later, Joyce, a bit red in the face with angry eyes that turn soft as she looks toward Will, herds Jonathan and Will into the car and drives them to the video store, saying they can pick out whatever film they’d like.
“It’s family movie night,” she declares as they walk up to the store, pulling them both into a hug that ends in a tickle war and odd stares from passersby on the sidewalk. When they do finally go inside, Will chooses An American Werewolf in London because he’s been wanting to see it since it came out in theaters the year prior, and he loves it - the soundtrack is awesome and the special effects are amazing! And despite Joyce’s worries, he doesn’t have any nightmares related to the brutal transformation scene. Well, okay…he doesn’t have too many nightmares.
But then Ghostbusters comes out and Will sees it with all of his friends on its opening weekend and honestly, what could be more iconic than the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man towering above the city? So Ghostbusters is tied with An American Werewolf in London for a year, but then…then! Back To The Future comes out and Marty McFly is so cool (and cute as heck) and he travels through time and shreds on the guitar and manages to save his own existence and so yeah, Back To The Future is officially his Favorite Film Of All Time, and that one sticks. (Will definitely dresses up as Marty that Halloween and it’s just as adorable you’d imagine it would be.)
Will’s favorite book is The Book of Three even though he’d never say that in front of Dustin because he doesn’t need a rehash of every way that The Fellowship of the Ring is superior in the realm of high fantasy (Will holds his tongue, though he wants to remind Dustin that the term “high fantasy” was coined by Lloyd Alexander himself).
His favorite pastime is drawing in Castle Byers on sticky-hot summer days - drawing elves and wizards and fairies, of course, but also drawing all the things he wants. A bigger house for his mom. A new camera for Jonathan. A car that doesn’t break down every few miles, and can fly and time travel and has a flux capacitor tucked up behind the two front seats (but it’s not a DeLorean because that’s all just a little too flashy for Will’s tastes). He also likes to climb trees and trail behind Jonathan as he takes pictures out in the woods, if those count as favorite pastimes.
Will’s favorite color is yellow - like sunshine, like Joyce’s favorite mug that she sips her coffee from every morning, like dandelions that the adults around him tell him are just weeds, but he still plucks them from the ground and presses them between the pages of his sketchbook with the rest of the beautiful flowers he collects.
