okay no this isn’t some complicated theory but my mom was making sorta rude comments about how Newt always sort of hunches away and cowers/twitches at things in the movie, and she was basically saying other things about Eddie Redmayne just sort of does that…
BUT THEN my brother chimed in and made us rethink because he said how Newt is typically a rather shy and socially awkward person (sorta) and isn’t really an extrovert. He went on to say how he noticed in the film that when Newt enters his case you can literally see and hear and feel just how much he opens up and is so much more sociable and free inside the case. When he’s with his creatures and in his own world he’s truly free.
just a cute little thingy we noticed.
(side note) hOw freaking cute was it (and terribly sad) when Newt was being arrested and literally begging and pleading for the ministry to not hurt or even touch his creatures?? like wow????? MY HEART. this man is being arrested and is in heaps load of trouble and isn’t even denying anything or pleading for himself he’s literally so worried about his babies and they’re so important and prioritized.
Request: Hi there! I LOVE There’s No Place Like Home and I’d like to request a one shot, please. Could you do a Merlin x reader where the reader is a noblewoman visiting Camelot and Arthur assigns him as her servant and Merlin, for the life of him, cannot figure out how to lace her bodice (and, of course, neither does she) and fluffy stuff ensues as they figure it out together? Thanks very much! Love your blog

(So I got the idea of the reader being an actual member of the royal court, rather than just some nobleman’s daughter, from a book called The Runaway King, by Jennifer A. Nielsen. It’s the second book in a series and all of the books are really awesome. Okay, that is all.)
Being a noble woman wasn’t as easy as everyone would think. You had to arrange all of the king’s files (something that the men didn’t feel lead to do), you had to arrange dates, set up meetings, it was hectic and since you were a woman you never got recognition for any of it. Sure, you were treated better than the townspeople, which you hated, but you were treated like an object by every man that ever laid eyes on you.
The king never really left his home, nor did the higher standing males so, that just left you to go on all of the business trips, but you didn’t mind. It was a few weeks that you had to yourself to do whatever your heart desired. Sure you encountered a few bandits along the way but contrary to popular belief you could take care of yourself. So, when you were told to go to Camelot to take care of some business the kind deemed unworthy of his presence you were elated.
You always had a bag pre-packed for things like this, not that anyone knew that about you. You didn’t want anyone to know how eager you were to get away from your home. It’s not that you didn’t like the people there, you loved the townspeople, but traveling was something that you longed to do. You wanted to see the world and by doing these jobs you got to do just that.
The ride to Camelot was exhilarating. The wind blowing through your hair energized you, made you feel alive. Having the woods all around made you feel more at home than you ever felt at the castle.
Camelot was a beautiful place. Everyone was so nice when you rode through the gates, the guards helped you off of your horse and just as your feet hit the stone in the square you were greeted by none other than the king of Camelot, Arthur Pendragon. “Welcome, Lady Y/N. I hope that you found your way here with minimal problems.” His voice was warm and inviting, making you feel like you should be there.
“Well, I am looking forward to doing business with you to make our two kingdoms allies, but before that there will be a feast to honor your arrival. I want you to take my servant, Merlin, to help you prepare for tonight.” You blushed and looked at the ground, nervous to be honored in such a way.
You didn’t see why they would do that. You were just there to do work for your king. You weren’t really doing anything that special. The alliance between Camelot and your kingdom was needed for the two lands to be safe.
You looked up as the sound of footsteps racing towards you caught your attention. There was a pale boy running towards you with raven hair and a red neckerchief. “I’m…sorry…I’m…late.” He wheezed out between labored breaths.
“Just take Lady Y/N to her room and help her get ready, Merlin.” Arthur growled.
Merlin nodded hastily and rushed to take your belongings. You chuckled a little as he fumbled with the bags, unsuccessfully trying to take them all at once. You marched over to him and laid your hand gently on his. “I can help with that, Merlin.” You said his name just to see how it would feel rolling off of your tongue.
It felt nice.
You internally smirked as you saw the blush that dusted Merlin’s pale cheeks. You took the bags and started to walk to the castle, signaling to Merlin that he should do the same. The sound of his shoes scuffing across the square was your only confirmation that he had taken the hint.
The room that you were set to stay in was nice. It was spacious with a four-poster bed against the wall and a dresser sitting in the corner. It was a very nice place for someone that would only be in it for a few days. You couldn’t help but wonder how many rooms in the castle were just like this. You also couldn’t help but fathom how many townspeople could be housed here, rather than leaving the rooms empty and useless. It’s not like they were ever used by people. The only time they probably ever had anyone in them was when the maids were cleaning, preparing for a nobleman or woman. “Um, m’lady.” You were startled to hear Merlin’s voice.
“I’m sorry, I must have blanked out.” You muttered apologetically.
“It’s quite alright, but I have to help you get ready for the feast.” You nodded shyly.
You slipped behind the screen that was set up and shimmied out of your dress, leaving you standing there in nothing but your underclothes. You weren’t ashamed of your body, but having someone like Merlin help you dress made you nervous. You thought he was attractive, very attractive so, having him help you dress would be quite unnerving. “M-Merlin,” You stuttered quietly, hoping he couldn’t sense how uncomfortable you were with this. “Can you please pass me my skirt?” You asked.
The only reply you got was the skirt coming over the screen. You slipped it on quickly, relishing in the sense of security that it gave you in this situation. You smiled a little as you saw your blouse tossed over a few seconds later. You slipped it over your head and walked from behind the screen, waiting for the most dreaded part of getting dressed for anything, your bodice. It was a beautiful Y/F/C and you had to admit that you were a little excited about this, only because it would tie the outfit together. Because, let’s face it, who in their right mind would ever want to be squished into something that was used to bring out their ‘feminine’ figure.
You mentally prepared yourself for the few minutes of torture you would have to go through to get it on. “So, what do I do with this?” You hear Merlin’s voice ask innocently.
He was holding the cause of your dread in his hand, looking at it like it was something that he had never seen before in his life. You sighed heavily before you started to explain, “ it’s my bodice. It goes around my torso and then gets laced.”
“Oh, well, then I guess I should probably do that.” You silently chuckled as he wrapped the piece around your body and started to lace it, but then you realised that no lacing was happening.
“What’s wrong, Merlin?” You asked, concern evident in your voice.
You couldn’t help it. You thought that maybe something was wrong with him and well for obvious reasons that wouldn’t be great. But if he fell ill then what chance would you have of getting to know him better and maybe actually becoming his friend? “Oh, n-nothing…I mean it’s something but I can figure it out…well okay, I can’t but I have to,” there was a pause “okay how do you lace one of these things?” Your eyes widened at the question.
“How detrimental would it be if I said that I had no idea?” You muttered, internally cringing at how stupid you sounded.
“It would be very, very bad because, Arthur is going to kill me if I don’t have you ready on time, oh my god I’m going to die because I could lace up a bodice.” You couldn’t help but laugh out loud at his rambling.
“I have an idea.” You said carefully.
You took the bodice from your torso and laid it onto the table that rested in the middle of the chamber that you were in. “Maybe, just maybe, we can try to do this without me in it and both learn together.” You pulled out two chairs and sat down, waiting for Merlin to follow suit.
“Okay, so I think that this goes here and then you take this string and move it across and crisscross it all the way down and tie it in a bow maybe? Does that sound stupid?” You questioned.
You and Merlin had been attempting to figure out the bodice for at least an hour to no avail. “Okay, I just give up, maybe I can just find a new dress or something.” You grumbled, tired of trying to lace the stupid piece of clothing.
“You’re really quite adorable when you’re angry.” Your head shot up to look at Merlin.
“Did I just say that out loud? Oh my god I’m such a clotpole! I’m so sorry, this is so awkward now.” You giggled quietly as he went on and on about how stupid he was.
“I think you’re adorable when you ramble because you’re nervous.” You stated, like it was common knowledge that you found the bumbling raven haired boy captivating.
“Y-you do?” He looked so shocked at your statement.
“Well of course.” You looked into his blue eyes and smiled.
He had to have been, by far, the cutest human being that you had ever encountered. He was kind and witty. He was clumsy and pure. He seemed so innocent and for some reason that drew you in.
You held eye contact with him for what seemed like years until his eyes fluttered closed and his head tilted slightly to the side as he leaned forward. You couldn’t help but do the same and when your lips collided it was like magic. You never wanted to break the kiss, but you still had to figure out how to lace the stupid torture device that laid on the table in front of you. “I hate that stupid thing.” You groaned as the two of you started working once again towards, what seemed like the most impossible goal that you had ever set.
“Did we do it?” You asked hopefully as you looked down at the now fully laced bodice that was in front of you.
“I think we did!” Merlin’s smile was so big that you were almost sure that his face was going to split in half.
“You know that now we have to try and lace it while it’s on my body.” Merlin groaned and you sighed, neither of you were looking forward to re-lacing the major pain in the ass.
You lifted your arms sluggishly as the final piece to your outfit was wrapped around you. You didn’t even care anymore, you just wanted for this to be over. “I got it!” Merlin cheered.
In that moment you couldn’t help yourself, you turned around and hugged him like you had never hugged anyone before. You pulled back and looked into his eyes once again and crashed your lips into his, savoring the feeling. There was a knock on the door and you groaned, knowing that it was your cue to go to the feast. Merlin laughed and bowed to you goofily. He held his arm out to you, “M’lady.” You laughed loudly and hooked your arm with his.
“Why thank you, m’lord.” The two of you laughed the whole way down the corridor to the doors of the dining hall.
(I hope that the Anon who requested this likes it (and anyone else who reads it) and thank you for requesting in the first place, it was really sweet! This kind of isn’t the best, but I tried! Have a nice day/night/whatever it is where you guys are!)
Okay, I guess we all know that Tyler screams “Josh Dun!” in ‘The Judge’, because he stood in front of the glass when Tyler recorded that take. And we probably all freaked out more than once about how cute it is.
But can you imagine Josh standing there and hearing it? Like he probably laughed and thought Tyler would do another take. And then Tyler comes out of the record room and is like ‘I knew there was something missing. That was perfect.’ and then he explains everyone that he won’t take that out, because that’s how it supposed to be, while Josh just stands there, probably half laughing, half flattered and confused.
Just imagine the situation when Josh heard it for the first time.

Hello love bugs! I just need to say thank you so much for all the love from Take me Howell. So I decided to flip the tables and make Dan the drunk one and you the one dealing with him.
Dan X Female Reader
Warnings- ⚠️swearing, drunk, mentions of smut.
It was honestly a pretty boring day. Dan and Phil were at meetings all day so you had the apartment to yourself. You already did everything you like to do when your alone. You watched the next episode of the thing you are all bingeing together so you can watch the boys reactions to the surprises. You made food that only you like for supper. Lastly you listened to what ever kind of crappy music you wanted to without anyone bitching about how terrible it is. Now you were sitting on the sofa flicking through channels when you hear a crash at the front door. Automatically you jump into action readying your self with the closest object as protection. This happen to be a lighter from all of Phil’s candles, but it was going to make do. As you creep down the stairs lighter in hand you can start to hear voices. You can’t make it out but one is definitely trying to whisper yell. Just as you ready yourself Phil and Dan burst through the door in a flail of arms and coats. You calm your Kung-fu stance relieved it’s just your boys.
“Holy fuck Phil I can handle my own thank you”. Dan says with a flourish of his arms until his coat hits the floor. “See I’m a grown ass man who can handle shit”. This is said as he walks over top of the coat ignoring the fact he should really be picking it up.
“Hey boys”. You say softly trying to still feel out the room. Dan was obviously drunk but you couldn’t tell if Phil was or not.
“Thank god”. Phil was pushing past Dan up the stairs to you to say he looked flustered would be an understatement. “Free wine at meetings mixed with free drinks at a pub because doing Business in London requires it, makes Danny boy drunk as a skunk”. Phil says with tiredness in his eyes. “After the meetings we saw some friends we knew at the pub and it all went down hill from there. With all my love I officially pass the buck to you. He’s all yours”. And with that Phil walks past you to his bedroom to get some much needed sleep. No one likes to be the babysitter in these situations. From looking at Dan you can tell this is a situation where you need to go in with a soft voice but firm instructions.
“Hey love, did you have fun tonight”? You have never seen Dan this drunk before. Of course the two of you have been buzzed together. There was that one time you came over here drunk looking for sex. Other then that this was a first.
“Oh baby I had a great time”. He says making his way slowly up the stairs. “Meetings were meetings but then we saw some of the guys at the pub, and things just took off from there”.
“I’m glad you had fun but did you forget about setting a limit for yourself”? reaching your hand out to try and get him to grab for the last few steps.“
“I did and then I said fuck it. You only live once Y/N”. Dan is officially on the landing with you. Even as a mess he still towers over you making you feel small.
“Well I’m glad you had fun. Let’s go get you to bed. We will get you changed, watered, and tucked in”. You say as you squeeze his hand leading the way up the next steps”.
“I like all of this babe, but I insist we put a little sexy time in between those steps”. He says giving your ass a stinging slap. He was usually forward in when he wanted sex but this had a different tone. “ I want to bend you over and fuck you till you scream my name”.
“Okay”. You say trying to put a quick stop to this. “I’m telling you right now that sex is off the table”. You had to be quick in laying down the law. A small pout forms on Dan’s lips. He had very different plans for how this evening was going down.
“We will see”. You could almost see the wheels turning in his head. You were never really one to turn down a good romp session. Dan was going to try and play this to his advantage. After what seemed like you guys were climbing stairs in a freaking tower and not the three story flat, you finally make it to Dan’s room. You start the search for his pj’s in the drawers. Dan on the other hand decided it was time to serenade you on the piano. This was always like a babe magnet. “Stop trying to impress me, and come and get your clothes on”. You knew his tricks. He forgot who was the sober one and who wasn’t.
“Why would I change when all I want to do is undress myself and you”. He had the biggest shit eating grin on thinking he was mr.smooth. At this point you decided it was time to use your mommy voice and just get shit done.
“Take. It. Off.” You say while holding the pyjamas outstretched in your arms.
“Damn, fine”. Dan says giving into the instructions. Before you know it he is finally changed. You have definitely baby sat children who didn’t take this long to change.
“Crawl into bed and I will grab you a water”. You say exiting the room. By the time you come back he is in his bed waiting for you. “Here drink some of this. You will thank me in the morning”. You say handing the glass to him. As Dan gulps down the water you start to dress into your pyjamas, then crawl into bed beside him. You could tell he was finally starting to very slowly sober up.
“So is sex still off the table because I think I could manage”. He wasn’t even attempting to hide his little smile. He didn’t know how freaking cute he was.
“Unfortunately we will not be having sex. We can however cuddle”. You say as You motion for Dan to rest his head on your chest. He obliges and gets comfy. You loved to run your fingers through his hair so you started to pet his head. “Good night my sweet drunk boyfriend”. looking down at him you realize Dan however didn’t hear you say that because he was fast asleep.
