He makes the decision for the both of them, stretching out his arm until his hand settles on Adam’s chest. Adam doesn’t move. Justin takes a small step forward and speaks into the hushed space between them.
“I’m going to help because I’ll go crazy if I don’t. I’ll fucking lose it. I need this and you need me and we both need us .”
There’s no way in hell I’m the first person to suggest this, but are there any AU’s where Jack became a figure skater instead of a hockey player?
Hear me out Jack going through his youth super passionate about being on the ice, with everyone criticizing him for not going into hockey, becoming the youngest Canadian man to medal in a worlds/Olympic competition, then having a late growth spurt that made him almost too tall/broad to compete the same way and pretty much cost him his career.
He craters, disappears for a few years, messes around with training and hockey a bit, ends up at Samwell to get a degree and reset his life. He still skates, and he’s not half bad shooting the puck around, so SMH tries to recruit him, if only to say they have a Zimmermann on the team.
Year or two later, enter Eric Bittle, SMH’s newest frog, who comes to find his teen idol, Jack Zimmermann, not only goes to the same school, but shares the same ice.
(Idk, but that is a fascinating dynamic I’d love to explore.)
Went back, tried to add more to Aether’s armor to make it not look so plain / get a slightly more greek-vibe. Dunno if it worked in the latter, but eh. Also added the party’s cleric. She puts the battle in battle cleric… And is voted most likely to be hauled away by the town watch after disturbing the peace via bar fights.
Annnnd though it’s hard to see in this, her hammer does in fact say ‘Inspiration’ on the head. Realized as I pulled up references I actually forgot her horn when I drew her in the burrow.
I might have made her a bit too tall in this, shes supposed to be a big mare, but damn. What’dya think?
I hate getting told that I’m never going to find a boyfriend in life because I’m too tall (5 10″ at 13) and told that the guys at my school will only date girls shorter than them because otherwise “it looks stupid or weird”. A load of trash, especially when we see happy couples like this:
all the time. Guys aren’t going to not like me because I’m tall. In fact, girls are always told they should have long legs. My legs are at least a meter of my height! I can’t win! Why should height even matter?
TRC halloween costume headcanons? (I feel like everyone would expect Noah to just throw a sheet over himself and haha he's a ghost get it but actually he does this like elaborate cosplay of a character from an anime he loves)
this is such a good ask omg
i totally agree with you about noah going hard on cosplay for his halloween costume (there’s a terrible voice in the back of my mind saying “noah dresses up as dave strider” that i REFUSE to delve any deeper into)
HOWEVER, ronan throws a sheet over himself and goes around all day telling everyone that he’s noah, which fools absolutely no one because well… he’s way too tall and also noah is right there, five feet away from you (he’s NOT dressed like dave strider) but noah gets really annoyed every time he says it and starts really earnestly insisting “no! no stop it that’s not me! i’m right here i’m noah!” which ronan finds funny enough that it’s #worthit
i can see blue maybe being a witch or something similar? she sews the whole costume herself entirely out of old clothes of hers and these really tacky curtains she steals from orla’s room and she’s extremely proud of it
henry assembles an almost frightening ensemble of brightly colored and shiny clothes and says he’s a different 80′s pop star every time someone asks him who he is
gansey dresses either as some historical figure who he thinks everyone should be more aware of (and delivers a lecture on when asks who he is) or as a fancy vampire but he puts. an INCREDIBLE amount of research into the backstories behind certain pieces of vampire lore to make sure his costume is completely historically accurate and up with the earliest pieces of vampire mythos (tho right after i typed this im remembering that trc takes place in 2012 and no self respecting teenage boy would dress up as a vampire back then. twilight was still too large in everyone’s minds. so the first one i guess)
adam is pretty sure they’re all too old to dress up and doesn’t get why why everyone else is Doing This but under extreme pressure he gets an old t shirt from his closet with the batman logo on it and insists that this counts as dressing up as batman. henry ties a black blanket around his shoulders and everyone finally agrees that now that he has the cape, he’s in the clear
Lance: it’s not fair
Keith: what’s not fair
Lance: I want to be the little cute one
Lance: short cute people get to be sweet or tough and everyone loves them for it. But when your tall like me no one ever calls you cute when your angry or wearing your partners clothes.
Keith: *internally screaming after picturing Lance wearing his clothes*
At first Harry didn’t notice, because Draco tried to stay seated as often as possible
And when he stood or walked his shoulders were hunched and his head was bowed low
Since the war and trials that followed almost every trace of pride in his demeanour had been erased
Draco hates his newfound height
His legs won’t fit underneath the school benches
The dormitory entrance is so low he keeps banging his head against it
And the people who want to look down on him, who deserve to look down on him, need to crane their neck upwards to see his face
Which causes them to hate him even more
When Pansy sees him struggle, she starts to wear high spiked heels around him
Blaise follows suit
And it helps, because now people notice them before Draco
Except Harry of course, who just keeps staring at the blond like he’s the only thing in the world worth looking at
Which, according to a half drunk confession made by one H. Potter, he totally is, and what does it matter that Blaise is wearing high heels Ron? He’s never going to be prettier that Malfoy anyway
“Well, if Malfoy’s so pretty, then why don’t you go annoy him instead of me?” A more than half drunk Ron tells him, because Zabini looks nice in heels, but he’ll never outclass Hermione, and he’d like some alone time with her to tell her just that
So Harry goes out to find Draco
And he finally notices their height difference when he quite literally bumps into the pale boy
Because even for a half drunk Harry it’s hard to miss that he’s not standing nose to nose with his former nemesis
He’s standing nose to a-bit-below-the-nipples with him
“You’re tall.” Harry mumbles as he looks up (and up and up and up)
“You’re tiny.” Draco shoots back, a little bit of his snark coming back to him now that he’s more used to the stares (and also quite tipsy)
