thoughts on: alec giving magnus' flowers

listen,,,listen that is a Concept. alec loves giving magnus gifts and when he finds out that magnus has favourite flowers he is On It. The first time he gets him flowers, they’re on a random date. one second magnus is looking at his phone at the text that says turn around <3 and the next there’s a giant bouquet of flowers right in front of him. there’s no reason other than “youve been working the whole week i wanted to get you something nice” and magnus kisses him breathless. it becomes a bit of a thing, magnus receiving flowers when he least expects them.

and when alec kneels before him with a purple amaranth flower, the smile on his face rivals the sun

look it’s gilly

i just love my cheery druid baby guys

Can’t Use Plain English

Back when Mike left law for investment banking, he teased Harvey for not sending flowers to celebrate his new office.

Years later, Mike returns to Pearson Specter Litt, finally freed from jail and the burden of fraud. He finds a gift waiting in his office.

Mike enters Harvey’s— his office on Monday morning and finds it strangely empty, now stripped of signed basketballs and vintage records. Yet a burst of color catches his eye.

He turns to the coffee table and sees a smooth glass vase. It holds a single green stem, twined around a straight rod and tied to it for support. At the top blooms a cascade of flowers that curve the stem down with their weight, the petals shining gold at their centers before deepening into magenta. He reaches out to feel a frilled petal and finds it delicate yet undeniably substantial between his fingertips—

“Glad to be back?”

Mike whips around to see Harvey leaning by the door, his smile a touch too soft for a smirk. “You remembered.”

“Of course I did. You wouldn’t shut up back when you ran off with Sidwell, so I cut you off early this time and ordered your goddamn flowers.”

Mike chuckles at those memories, still exquisitely clear in his mind. “You mean you had Donna order me flowers.”

“No, that present right there’s all mine.”  

Mike pauses. “Wait, really?”



Harvey gives an exaggerated sigh. “You didn’t just ask me for flowers, Mike, you asked me for orchids. Repeatedly. Eventually I got curious enough—” his eyes take on a predatory gleam— “to do more research.”

“Maybe I just like orchids.”

“I asked Donna, who asked Rachel, and none of us have heard you mention orchids anytime else. So no, you don’t care about just any orchids, Mike. Fortunately,  those—  ” he gestures at his present— “are not just any orchids.”

“They’re beautiful, obviously, but I don’t see what’s special about them …” Mike trails off, considering.

“Out of curiosity, I Googled the symbolism behind orchids— turns out flower meanings are a giant, contradictory disaster, and I don’t see why people can’t use plain English for their messages,” Harvey explains with a huff. “According to one source of arguable credibility, purple orchids represent admiration and respect, and yellow orchids stand for friendship, fresh starts—”

“So you got me purple-and-yellow orchids,” he finishes. “Wow, Harvey, that’s—”

“I’m not done,” he says, and Mike’s mouth snaps shut. “Sure, kid, I got you orchids in appropriate colors, and you’re welcome. But you never asked for a specific color in the first place. Throw in the fact that you don’t care about orchids unless I’m giving them to you, and I have to conclude that your subconscious wants any and all orchids, to hell with the color. You just care that those orchids are  mine.”

Mike’s breath catches.

“I learned a lot of things from that Google search, Mike,” Harvey plows on. “Wanna tell me where the name ‘orchid’ comes from?”

“Ancient Greek.”

“Be more specific.”

Mike groans. “The word ‘orchis.’”




“Testicle.” He mumbles the answer.

“Damn right.” And now the grin Harvey’s been restraining bursts forth as he declares, “Feel free to enjoy those orchids however you want. After all, you’ve been begging for them for years.”

He starts to go, leaving Mike flushed magenta himself—


He turns back. “Yes?”

“I read that in Victorian times suitors sent orchids as part of courtship rituals, to show their affection,” Mike says, raising his chin to meet Harvey’s gaze, wearing an increasingly cheeky smile. “The more expensive the flower, the deeper their love.”

Harvey’s own smile fades, and he raises his eyebrows. “Is that so?”

Mike nods, suddenly unsure of what to expect. He certainly doesn’t expect Harvey’s eyes to darken as he remembers Rachel, as he readies himself to dismiss the flowers as a costly but tasteless, meaningless joke …

“Well, Mike,” he at last murmurs, “I’m sure it’s just coincidence that those are the most expensive orchids in Manhattan.”

Harvey strides out of the office without another word.

Magical Girl First Person Shooter

I had a great conversation with a (male) co-worker today (I work in videogames, fyi) where we were like “Man, we used to dig FPS games, but now they’re literally all the same. Maybe they were ALWAYS all the same, but now it’s really starting to show.”

He said, “if I never play an FPS again I will be a happy man”

and I joked “The only way I will ever play an FPS again is if I am in fact a magical girl sparkleprincess who turns squarejawed dudebrows into sparkleponies.”

And then halfway to the car I went… wait.

Since I don’t have the skills to make this and even if I could my current contract with my company means I can’t make it on my own I’m just gonna babble about it on the internets. 

What if you had a game where the underlying structure was literally just a normal FPS–a classic FPS, mind you, more Doom, Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Wolfenstein, or Quake than Modern Warfare or anything–but instead of being Sir Whitebread Squarejawed McManpain mowing down people you are a classic Sailor Moon type magical girl. All the weapons are basically of the same types as a classic FPS in terms of what they do (pistol, shotgun, rifle, etc) except they are classic magical girl weapons in the forms of wands, scepters, staves, mirrors, hair pins, whatever. 

You start out in the middle of your typical Grimdark Real Is Brown Military Shooter, with two different sides of squarejawed manpain guys fighting each other, but instead of killing them, when you hit them with your attacks they turn into happy joy funtime sparklepeople of some sort. They end up in flamboyant lovely clothes and everything around them becomes supersaturated with color and they are immune to bullets. You are not, but you cannot die either because idk bullets don’t really hurt you they just desynch you and send you back to Magical Girl Land. People’s guns explode into rainbows and butterflies. Tanks turn into giant flying neon Lisa Frank whales. Grenades explode into flowers. 

You are here to bring peace and end war! In the name of the Sun and Stars, you will bring joy and love! 

You could actually pick from a number of protags with different abilities. I genuinely want a huge, fat, not even curvy but outright fat magical girl in a gorgeous fluffy pink dress who floats lightly through the air and is good at grenades, only they are bubble bath bombs. I want an Utena style magical girl in a waistcoat and spats. I want a trans magical girl where literally her gender is backstory and she’s just normal like the rest.  I want magical girls who aren’t white or Japanese, I want black magical girls and brown magical girls and all kinds of magical girls. There’s one Tuxedo Mask character and he’s the literal worst at anything so playing him well and actually beating the game with him is basically BRUTAL MODE. 

There’d be 4 player co-op mode where you’re still just going through this brown war zone healing the land and bringing PEACE AND LOVE. 

Deathmatch / capture the flag / other sorts of versus mode takes place in training sessions in Magical Girl Land where you train by seeing how many of your fellow magical girls you can temporarily turn into adorable kittens, puppies, and bunnies. Respawning is just the spell wearing off. 

There would be no ironic magical girl stuff here. This isn’t Madoka, this would be Sailor Moon levels of NOPE PEACE AND LOVE SAVES THE UNIVERSE  stuff. Unironic beautiful goodness. Endgame is that you have established your rainbow sparkle empire. 

I do not think you know how badly I want this. 

*e* LET ME BE ABSOLUTELY CLEAR. This is not a ~shooter for women~ because frankly I’ve been playing shooters since I was a kid. This is not ~pink aisle~. This is subverting the classic shooter formula of “get gun mow down dudes” with “Get sparkle staff make everyone happy.” This is a shooter FOR EVERYONE that is ABOUT SPARKLE PRINCESSES

Furthermore, I’d want to avoid any weird fetishy sexualization. Some of the magical girls should be sexy, yeah! But others should not. They should all be women, first and foremost. No panty shots or any of that gross shit, just cute as hell girls spreading sparkle love. 

Secret Garden

@glitch-john-and-friemds gave me the idea for this story I hope you like it

Paring: OctoGlow

Summary: GlowGeorge secretly going out at night and OctoRingo is about to confront him about it but then it turns out he’s just making a giant flower garden next to a tall oak tree of all his favorite flowers.

Every night GlowGeorge would sneak out with packets of seed or water or nothing and he’ll plant the seeds in a garden similar to OctoRingo’s but only with flowers and he’ll plant them and wait for the next night to come to check on the flowers and he’ll water them. And he hoped that his love didn’t know about this.

OctoRingo always saw GlowGeorge sneak out to somewhere and he planned on confronting him but he had to wait to he wouldn’t surprise him and so when the night came he waited for George to leave first so he could follow him, and OctoRingo got out of bed and put on his slippers and followed GlowGeorge to an Oak tree. And then he hid when GlowGeorge turned around and when he turned back around OctoRingo kept following him and then he walked behind GlowGeorge and he touched his shoulder and he felt him jump and he looked behind him with his eyes being the color of lime green and they turned to pink when he realized it was OctoRingo. OctoRingo was about to ask him, why were you going out at night, until he saw a garden with a bunch of flowers like, Tulips, Daffodils, Sunflowers, Marigolds, Roses, Lilies, Snapdragons, Orchids, and more.

OctoRingo was taken away at GlowGeorge’s garden and he looked at him and GlowGeorge looked away with his eyes turning brown and OctoRingo brought one of his hands to GlowGeorge’s chin and he brought his head to meet his and he said “Sunflower, there’s no need to be shy about showing me your Garden, I think it’s beautiful.” and GlowGeorge’s eyes turned pink and he hugged his boyfriend. Then he looked down at a rose and he picked it and he put it behind OctoRingo’s ear and OctoRingo giggled and kissed wherever GlowGeorge’s mouth is and he pulled back and touched the flower and said “You’re the best boyfriend I could ever have.” and he picked a Dahlia, “It matches your eyes Georgie,” he starts and he puts it behind GlowGeorge’s ear and finishes “And now we both have a flower.” and he smiled at how adorable his boyfriend looked and he didn’t realize that he was pulled into a hug and he hugged back. Then he held out one of his hands and said “Let’s go home, you must be tired.” and he saw GlowGeorge’s eyes turned purple and OctoRingo smiled at that and took GlowGeorge home and they slept till the sunrise so they could pick the flowers that GlowGeorge grew.

An OC! Florian was designed for the dry-sounding ‘ecological management and restoration’, but instead has been… slightly influenced by their human co-workers and has turned into, well, a giant hippie. Enjoys flowers, bright colours, displaying sassy emotes on their viewscreen, and cute clothes. They’re perfectly happy being a robot, they have no desire to get a more human-looking chassis, and sees no reason why they can’t be happy being a robot and also enjoy expressing themself, right?

i love it!! so cute
