Bill/Laura + dog trainer AU, for @lolcat76

Laura Roslin has been a dog trainer for…well, more years than she likes to count, and what makes her the best is this: she can always figure out what’s going wrong in the dog’s training before the appointment even begins.  (“It’s a gift,” she’d told her former boss smugly as she left to start her own private practice, because if Richard wasn’t going to leave his wife for her she wasn’t going to leave her best tip behind for him.)

Take now, for example: the man uncomfortably hunched in a chair in her waiting room, arms crossed, eyes straight ahead, talking quietly to his dog…he’s embarrassed to be there, and will therefore feel compelled to resist the very advice he’s paying for.  Laura can tell that right now.

Somewhere, in the carefully cultivated mess of Ranpo’s life, there’s some clues to the life he had before, when he was really small. 

If you knew this guy for a while, and he had given you a hug, you would know the dude’s really strong. But did you know he got it from his mom? Somewhere in the deep recesses of his closet, there’s a picture of his mother lifting both baby Ranpo and his dad. 

They’re smiling, as it was a good time. 

I’m so tired of hearing people igoring me and going “Oh I’m sorry, I didnt hear you!” (When they obviously heard me.)

If they were a stranger, or had auditory processing disorder, I’d be more understanding, but just flat out ignoring me? NOT ok.

I just really hate it when hearing people act like they’re deaf?? Like??? No. Not okay. Why in the whole wide world would you Ever think thats okay?!

This is not refering to people with auditory processing disorder. This is refering to people who lie a lot and always pretend they can’t hear. I know when my family heard me because, they 1) see me look at them and immidiately look away as they walk past, and 2)often tell me “oh I heard you, I just didnt want to do it/answer, lol.”

Lol, thats not freaking cool buddy. I litterally get yelled at for not hearing people. Something I have no control over, and youre doing it for kicks and just get away with it. But “Lol. So funny.”

Plus, the more you do it the more I start thinking you might have hearing problems. And once I find out you actually heard me, I get Super angry and assume you always ignore me.

Knowing someone is willingly ignoring me is not fun.

Also, Pretending to be deaf to get away with something makes you an incredible jerk.


((Yes, Deaf/hoh/APD people have done this, but usually when they have no energy to put up with your/hearing bullcrap.))

Dear Vilde. I don’t think I’ve told you, but I just wanted to say that I admire you so much for being so strong. No matter what happens, you never give up, you keep on going. You’re the first person I would bring with me to war, and I love you so much.
