why do people like to use the whole “adam and eve not adam and steve” against gays like need i remind you that adam and eve had one job but they screwed that up and plunged humanity into sin like they aren’t exactly the poster couple for a healthy relationship
In the past week, after seeing the new live action Beauty and the Beast (twice thus far. Still jonesing for a third viewing) the movie has taken up a permanent residence in the back of my mind, thus creating many a headcanon to frolic about in the space betwixt my ears. I personally enjoy reading other people’s headcanons so here are a few post-curse headcanons of mine, organized by character…
Belle - Belle uses the library to start a school for the village children, bringing the village’s literacy rate higher than anywhere else in the country. The children often give her drawings and short stories they’ve written which she displays prominently.
- One of her favorite things is watching Adam interact with children. He was a bit concerned at first that they wouldn’t like him, but it turns out he is great with them! She’s had to enact a “no piggyback rides in the library” rule. - She and Père Robert start a book club. - She is almost constantly tinkering with ideas and inventing things to make things easier around the castle. Washing machines, kitchen gadgets, carts with built in book shelves, and so on and so forth. Adam is more than happy to provide her with anything she could possibly need and often watches her work, helping when he can, but mostly just admiring her mind at work.
Prince Adam - Now that he is considerably less hairy (and over all less beastly in terms of body mass) he gets cold easily. (Mostly at night or in the early morning since early post-curse is summer.) He can often be found in the library by the fire and occasionally making his way through the castle wrapped in a sort of mobile cocoon of blankets. -Since the curse has been lifted he is trying to encourage a lighthearted atmosphere around the castle, attempting to undo the “when I enter a room, laughter dies” reputation. This ends up manifesting itself in quippy remarks and the occasional pun (much to the surprise of the staff at first) and ultimately learning to laugh at himself more. - He finds himself gravitating to Belle. Absentmindedly taking her hand in his whenever she is close by. Reading over her shoulder from time to time. Overall just preferring to be near her. She makes him feel safe. Yes, this is real. The curse is broken. She really does love him. -Having Phillipe around has proven very therapeutic for him. He goes for walks around the grounds with Phillipe and talks with him, pampering him with lots of apples for being such a good listener. -He waits a while to propose to Belle, but he keeps his mother’s wedding ring on his person pretty much from the start of their post-curse days. He just didn’t want to make Belle feel rushed.
Lumière - After years of having no taste buds,
Lumière has become a foodie. He relishes being able to savor the simplest ingredients, often enticing Plumette to try whatever he is most excited about at the time. “Plumette, you must try these strawberries! They are positively exquisite!” -He often forgets that he can no longer produce a source of light at will, and can often be heard muttering as he stubs his toe in the dark. -When Belle and Adam do get married, he is Adam’s best man and delivers the greatest speech. Lots of laughs. Even more happy tears.
Plumette -Plumette maintains a feather-like touch and learns how to paint from Maurice. Her landscapes become famous for her delicate brushwork. -She has never lost an argument with
Lumière. Any time he is being stubborn on a point of disagreement, she tickles him until he is willing to talk things out.
Cadenza and Garderobe -After their long curse induced separation, Cadenza and Garderobe take a second honeymoon and are nearly inseparable.
Mrs. Potts and family(plus LeFou) - Mr. Potts ends up moving into the castle and commuting to the village for work. Any time he has to leave he takes a moment to hug Mrs. Potts and Chip, studying their faces with a smile so that he never forgets again. -Mrs. Potts and LeFou end up becoming good friends. She gives LeFou motherly advice and Chip ends up looking up to him like a big brother. -LeFou makes sure to encourage Chip to follow his heart, be self assured (but remain humble) and to have the courage to stand up for himself, even if it means standing up to a friend.
ok i don’t even know where this idea came from but i’ve now held it for long enough that it’s acquired official headcanon status so here we go
let’s talk about ronan driving up to visit adam in college for halloween, but adam had already been invited to this party by someone in his dorm, so they decide to go together and start throwing around increasingly ridiculous ~couple costume ideas
at one point ronan suggests – mostly to be a little shit – that adam should go as poison ivy, because of his connection with cabeswater/sentient plants and his love of all things science
at first adam is skeptical but then he’s like “if i go along with this do i get to pick your costume” and ronan’s like “sure no problem”
and he’s so damn smug already because this is a couple costume after all, so obviously if adam’s poison ivy, ronan gets to be the freaking batman, moodiest and coolest and most-black-wearing of superheroes, right??
wrong, because that’s when adam just gives him this honestly borderline evil smile and says harley quinn
and that’s the story of how – some makeup, two temporary hair dyes, and a lot of dreaming later – adam and ronan rock up to the halloween party as this badass gay villainess couple
ronan, being his gd extra self, has actually dreamt the purple lamborghini from the suicide squad movie because screw the joker this car is too good for that fuckboy, so everyone is already staring at them before they even properly walk in
adam is wrapped in what is basically a (rather revealing) plant catsuit (“bro, are those real vines???” “shut up todd you’re stoned” “no but chad i swear those leaves moved” “yeah ok you’re super high right now”), wearing green eyeliner, green lipstick and his coolest magician look
ronan is wearing honest-to-god hot pants (”listen parrish this is too much” “oh, right, like this vegetable suit you dreamt me covers my modesty so well??” “i don’t know what you’re talking about” “i’m sure. now put on the shorts, lynch”) with the obligatory tank top and letterman jacket, red and blue eyeshadow, smudged lipstick, and a fucking baseball bat
(it’s maybe just possible that his bared midriff and the careless way the baseball bat is slung over his shoulders are doing things to adam)
(it’s also maybe just possible that when one of the vines from adam’s costume possessively wraps around his waist, that does things to ronan, too)
long story short, that is how adam and ronan win the costume contest while managing to make everyone at the party irrationally aroused
but possibly one of the highlights of the night is when somehow a picture gets posted on the facebook page of the event and within five minutes ten increasingly agitated/enthusiastic comments appear
I know we mostly like to imagine the opposite, but adam is way more ripped than ronan. as ripped as a teen can be. hear me out: -ronan is a deranged insomniac drunk who probably only eats frozen pizza and warm pizza when he really wants to treat himself. as a perpetually drunk italian I can assure you that is no way to get a six pack -adam works manually like 10 hours a day. he’s a sexy mechanicist, the kind that you see sexy car-washing while completely drenched in soap in certain rated channels. he also moves rocks, works in a factory and somewhere else yet to be clarified, probably a sexy car wash fantasy commercial -when ronan punched robert parrish, all the odds were against him right? because robert is way bigger. you wouldnt expect him to win, it was a desperate, stupid move. but ronan is faster and even more vicious. imagine this giant angry man fighting against a scrawny emo teen, and the scrawny emo teen winning. that’s fucking awesome -ronan is a twink
BatB 2017: my post-curse headcanons/possible fanfic prompts
• Maurice arrives several hours after the curse is broken, both worried about Belle and curious how everything turned out. He realized that something good has happened about half-way through his journey when he had no trouble finding his way to the castle and no unexpected weather changes await him.
• Adam apologizes sincerely to Maurice for imprisoning him and calling him a thief. Maurice says shortly “Apology accepted” and immediately continues “So, where is that gentleman who was a clock? I need to ask him some things!” (Maurice and Cogsworth become friends. Sometimes they go fishing together. They rarely talk, just enjoy comfortable silence.)
• That first night after the curse is broken, the formerly enchanted people make sure there is light in most of the rooms and at least one of them is awake at all time. They don’t talk about it, but the fear that they might never wake up and become lifeless objects is still very strong. The only two creatures who have no trouble sleeping anytime and anywhere are Froufrou (the dog) and Chip.
• Most of the previously enchanted people have nightmares occasionally but Adam’s are worst of all. His mind keeps replaying him the long hours after Belle left. The feeling of despair when he was certain he doomed both himself and people he cared about. And heartbreak that he is never going to see the woman he loves again.
• He doesn’t mention anything to Belle at first but she notices that something is amiss when most mornings he greets her with obvious relief he sees her and she notices dark circles under his eyes. After he tells her, she begins to sneak into the West Wing in the night, so everytime Adam wakes up, she is right there next to him.
• Belle has her share of nightmares as well, though they don’t occur that often. She dreams she is locked up either by Gaston or the villagers, knowing that Adam is out there somewhere fighting for his life or dying. In her nightmares, she can never reach him on time.
• This sleeping arrangement is actually pretty hard to maintain because their rooms are not exactly close. And while Adam and Belle might be technically engaged, they don’t want the whole castle to know that Belle spends most of the nights in the West Wing (even if not much occurs between them physically). *imagine the fanfiction possibilities here :D*
• Belle is mostly worried her father might find out. She explains to Adam that while Maurice is a kind, understanding father, she doesn’t want to have a conversation “I sleep in my fiancé’s room because we have bad dreams” with him. When Adam chuckles at it, she says with a deadpan face “He knows how to use that screwdriver”. Adam can’t tell if she’s kidding or seriously suggesting that her kindly looking father might physically hurt him.
The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy has, in what we laughingly call the past, had a great deal to say on the subject of parallel universes. Very little of this is, however, at all comprehensible to anyone below the level of Advanced God, and since it is now well-established that all known gods came into existence a good three millionths of a second after the Universe began rather than, as they usually claimed, the previous week, they already have a great deal of explaining to do as it is, and are therefore not available for comment at this time…
How would hanzo, 76, genji or reaper react to their s/o screaming awake one night only to find out they have severe ptsd?
A/N: Last request in my inbox, and this one is only from yesterday! Look at me, almost being productive for once. Just a reminder, since this means my inbox will be empty, requests are pretty much always open! I’ll get to your request whenever I can, but I do want to keep that open-door policy.
Hanzo’s a light sleeper, so he was awake almost immediately. He’s had his fair share of nightmares, though they’d never been bad enough to be considered PTSD. He’s rerun the fight with Genji hundreds, if not thousands of times, reliving in moment in lucid detail.
He’s there to comfort you, making sure that you’re relaxed and aware that it’s all in the past, it’s all over. He’d make some tea if you needed help relaxing, or grab some sake if you wanted to forget.
Helping you relax is the best thing he could do for you right now, and sometimes sitting in silence with each other’s company is the ideal way to unwind. He’s not the best at emotional comfort, but he’ll try.
Saying he ever really falls asleep is pretty generous, he’s almost always on edge ever since the Fall of Overwatch. Sleep’s a valuable commodity for him, but he’s all too familiar with it being interrupted, either by himself or others.
Mercy’s given him a few tips to dealing with his own condition, though he’s adamant that it isn’t PTSD, he mostly just powers through it. He’s completely willing to use her advice with you, though.
Jack’s not known for his ability to relax, he’s almost constantly in a state of combat-readiness. He may not be the best person to help you unwind, but he’ll make damn sure you know that he’ll never let anything bad ever happen to you again.
Zenyatta’s meditation has helped him come to terms with his condition, and he sleeps almost as well now than he did before the incident with Hanzo. Almost.
The instant you start screaming he’s ready for a fight, assuming that someone has broken into your home. After a quick examination of the room he’s by your side, pulling you into a tight hug.
You’re his treasure, and he’s there for you in body and soul. He’ll run you through every lesson Zenyatta’s ever given him, finding the right meditation for you, coming to terms with what happened. If he can’t help you get past it, then he’s grabbing Zenyatta as soon as he can.
Do ghosts even sleep? He lays in the bed with you, sure, but nobody really knows what he does in there. Is he just laying there with his eyes open, or what?
If he was still alive than he’d have the most serious case of PTSD you could imagine, but dying changes things a little. Emotions are a little hard to drag out of him, but he tries for your sake.
As imposing as he is, it’s hard not to feel safe around him. He’d pull you close, whispering whatever he could think of to help you feel better. Reaper isn’t great with emotions, but his actions speak louder than words ever could. Anything that wanted to hurt you would quite literally be a soulless husk when he was done with it.
It’s only 3pm, but I consider my work for today done – I’m on break anyways. I’ve organised my next week on both my blackboard/weekly planner and my journal (actually noticing I’ve done quite some work already, even though I didn’t think I did). I checked my literature notes on Woolf, adding missing information (names, places, etc… that my prof briefly mentioned but might add in an incoming test. I know how he works now.) and prepared for the next seminar (sadly working on two characters’ deaths (and my fav?? I was so disappointed in myself for getting attached to a secondary character and having him dying… again)). Next today? Reading. Mostly reading, and taking the train to the countryside. I’ll probably finish Adam Silvera’s History is all you left me, although I tried to read it slowly enough for it to last (not happening), and start Six of Crows’ sequel (I’ve had it on my Kindle since Christmas and simply forgot about it because of exams and starting the semester.)

1798-1799: The Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions want to nullify the unconstitutional Acts, which in itself is unconstitutional, so…..
1800: The Election “Revolution” of 1800 is probably the messiest election ever. Adams says Jefferson is dead, Jeffs retaliates, its awful
1800: The Electoral College has a tie with Jeffs and AyyAyyron Burr, Hamilton ends up breaking the tie. This works out great. (It doesn’t, he gets shot 4 years later)
We all know that the Fairy Tale wich refers to Blake is “Beauty and the Beast”. and for some time now i am thinking about what if “the Beast” in her story is not her self (or Adam) but rather it is Yang…
So befor i really start this thing here, i already hear some of you complain “but Adam must be the Beast…. he is —->a Faunus(with Horns like the Beast), he is Evil and his Emblem is a Rose ”…
yes my precious readers i know all of that but let me explain…
First of all if we only take the Emblem as an indicator, it also could be Ruby Rose who symbolizes the Beast because her Symbol is a Rose as well.
i think Adam is more like Gaston because they are mostly alike.
…both want their “Beauty” and if they don`t get what they want …. they cause harm to those who are in their way and that means the loved ones of their “Beauty”.
Even if we consider the fakt that Adam is a Faunus and Evil as indication for him being “the Beast”, it wouldn’t make sense because “the Beast” maybe look like a Monster but has a kind Heart…. something Adam doesn`t posses.
Soooo Yang’s Emblem is a burning Heart, what can symbolize how caring and brave she is. Like the Beast she protects Blake no matter what.And at The Vytal Festival, after Yang fought Mercury everyone thought about her as some kind of Monster…
Yang and the Beast can both be charming and also get into the Berserker Mode.
…. they danced together sooooo lovely ^///^… soooooo cute :)
and other Characters from RWBY show some similarities to the Characters of “the Beauty and the Beast” as well
the last hint is from the Red Trailer Song “Red like Roses” from Jeff Williams sung by Casey Lee Williams
Black the beast descends from shadows, Yellowbeauty burns Gold”
Ok Ok Ok…. i know that the song refers Blake as the Beast and Yang as the Beauty but either way, you know what i intent to say…. i hope :)
I know that astrology isn’t a science. Of course it isn’t. It’s just an arbitrary set of rules like chess or tennis or, what’s that strange thing you British play?”
“Er, cricket? Self-loathing?”
Request: You should do a Jeff Atkins imagine where he meets the reader the summer before their freshman year he just instantly falls for her but she’s just super oblivious to it and you can do whatever you want from there :3
Summer school fucking sucks. It’s honestly a waste of time, besides who cares if i failed a couple classes? In my opinion its no big deal buy yet here i am bored out of my mind when i could be doing something fun.
The only thing that doesn’t absolutely suck about summer school is (Y/N). Shes amazing and im pretty sure she doesn’t notice me. We both failed Language Arts in 8th grade so we have to make it up now.
“Is this seat taken?” She asks pointing to the seat next to me.
“Nope” i lie. I was saving that seat for my best friend Troy, we were supposed to stick together throughout summer school, but i mean he’ll understand right? She put her things down and sat at the desk.
“So (Y/N) im really surprised you have summer school, you always came off as a good student.” I say trying to start some conversation.
“I am in most classes, not to brag, but Language Arts was really kicking my ass” she said giggling
Holy shit her laugh was so cute.
“Yeah but i think thats mostly Ms. Adams fault considering she spent most of class talking about how her son and her cat get in fights” I replied to her and we both started laughing.
After a few weeks me and (Y/N) got really close and i think i fell in love with her. Everything about her was perfect. Literally everything. I really doubt she feels the same way about me but im hoping that will change soon.
It was the last day of summer school and everyone was ready to leave. (Y/N) came and sat next to me where i was waiting on my dad to pick me up.
“Ya know Jeff these weeks have been really fun with you.” She says “I honestly don’t know why we weren’t friends back in 8th grade considering we had the same class”
“Yeah but I guess thats what i get for being the quiet kid, you don’t really just make friends.” I answered smiling.
I was kind of bummed that this was the end of summer school. I didn’t even get to tell (Y/N) how i felt.
“Hey my mom is here to pick me up, but we should definitely talk more next year!” She said
Then I realized that i had all of freshman year for me and (Y/N) to get close, and i couldn’t wait.
