Modern Day Headcanons!

Happy belated Loop Day!

* Hugh has lotsa shirts with plants or bees on them.
* Horace never stops being dapper. Ever.
* Enoch tends to either stick with his overalls or wear baggy t-shirts or hoodies. (He doesn’t even bother with fashion at all. Comfort > style.)
* Fiona starts to wear pants and overalls, many of which are smeared with dirt, mud, and grass due to her garden work.
* Emma makes toast in the mornings. She always has to wash her hands twice before handling the bread, though. (There have also been a few occasions where she accidentally set the toast on fire…)
* Breakfast is an organized disaster. Everyone is passing food and chatting and half-ready for the day.
* Horace once didn’t get a good night’s sleep, and fell asleep face first into his food.
* *Plop* *SNOOOORE*
* Everyone takes turns making meals.
* Hugh and Fiona usually make something with lotsa fruit or vegetables: fruit salad, BLTs, veggie-beef stew, smoothies…to name a few.
* Horace and Jacob cannot cook to save their lives, so they just make sandwiches for everyone.
* Bronwyn, Olive and Claire can produce some nice dishes from the cookbooks the Portmans have.
* Millard says he can cook
* But he actually can’t
* He gets frustrated too easily
* Miss P. usually ends up helping him out
* Enoch is (surprisingly) actually a decent cook.
* He usually ends up making breakfast due to his LEGENDARY PANCAKE SKILLS
* But he mostly ends up making three (3) servings of pancakes (for Miss P., Horace, and himself) and cereal for the poor souls who don’t get the pancakes.
* Everyone is highkey suffering
* They need those pancakes
* Jacob introduces everyone to Just Dance, and they’re all crazy for it.
* Team Fugh and Team Enorace are really hard to beat.
* Enoch and Hugh tend to always do the feminine part of the dance.
* Mario Kart night is chaos.
* Everyone is yelling and laughing and throwingGODDAMMIT HUGH STOP IT WITH THE BLUE SHELLS
* *Evil laughter*
* Emma. Dominates. Mario Kart.
* (Though Fiona gave her a run for her money on the one piranha plant level)
* Bronwyn accidentally broke her controller and apologized to Jacob for two weeks straight.
* Horace is the KING of Rock Band.
* Drums, guitar, all of it.
* The kids actually like playing modern specialty board games
* Munchin is Enoch’s favorite.
* He always plays as a halfling thief and fucking destroys everyone.
* He’s successfully stolen at least fifty things from each player, and has so many cards per game, you don’t even KNOW.
* His favorite strategy is playing a ‘Wandering Monster’, then a 'Mate’, and then various monster enhancers on someone who pissed him off.
* Betrayal at the House on the Hill, Hive (Hugh LOVES Hive), Elder Sign, Pandemic, Fobidden Island, and Castle Panic are also family favorites.
* Many rooms in the Portman house are filled with little air plants and succulents, courtesy of Fiona.
* She loves the little shits. So. Much.
* There are always bees buzzing around and pollinating them.
* Mrs. Portman once accidentally swatted at one of Hugh’s bees,,,
* She REALLY got chewed out by Hugh.
* Fiona gets paralyzed from the waist down after falling off of the cliff, so she has to use a wheelchair now.
* She also learns sign language, so she can communicate non-verbally.
* Horace. Loves. Shopping.
* He’ll drag whoever’ll come with him along for HOURS.
* Enoch doesn’t mind it as much as he says he does.
* Mainly because seeing Horace so excited and invested is actually really adorable…
* …but he’d die before he’d tell anyone that.
* Millard often sneaks into school with the kids, usually following either Jacob or Emma around.
* He’ll sometimes even help them if he sees them struggling with something.
* The kids still celebrate Loop Day!
* They play all the games and stuff, and even still do all of the ridiculous decorating—the area around Enoch’s room looks like it came straight out of Halloween Town—and cake.
* Seriously that’s like 300 candles
