Gabriel, thinking: shit why is he so HOT why are his eyes so BLUE why is his hair so BLONDE

Jack, aloud: you’re not so tough or cool or badass, you’re just older than me and from LA, we still do cool things in *smudged writing on hand* Bloomingworth

like, i know that the world is in a scary place rn. and im scared like everyone, but im also in awe of the world and im fascinated to see what the future brings. my dad once compared this era to the industrial era (at least the american industrial era of like the 1900s and 1910s). like we look back adn we can see the terrible shit that happened in factories. but it happens time and again like this. technology leaps ahead of society and society is left to scramble to play catch-up. it leads to political and social strife, conflicts between generations, all the stuff we see today. but then we can look to the past and say “they made it through, this has all happened before. something good can come of this if we make it that way. this isnt just these terrible times, this is clay we can mold”

and i know that that doenst take away the fear and anger that people have. people on all sides have it, even if a lot of people respond to their fear and anger in hurtful and awful ways. im not apologizing for them. its terribly what theyre doing. but i feel like everyone on this planet rn is feeling the fear and anger and uncertainty. technology has advanced so much, and everything is changing. for some people this change looks to them like theyre losing a way of life. for others it gives them the chance to realize that they arent as alone as they thought, a chance to make a positive difference in the world and to carve out a space where they can feel accepted.

the world is changing, and while we cant just lie back and let things happen, this isnt the first time that this /has/ happened. we can make it through. humans are nothing if not resilient, history has proven that. we will find a way. and just imagine what the future could bring when we do.

its this kind of thing that makes me excited to be alive in these times, even as scary as they are. someday theres gonna be a new generation of people out there, and theyre gonna look to us and say “you were there when the world changed, what was it like? what did you do? what did you see?” and i hope to hell i have a good answer for them. i hope to hell that they see what comes out of this as a positive change. that they see that we saw the world afraid and angry and uncertain and alone, and we reached out a hand and helped each other and built something better out of it.

If you're looking for prompts, some Stan and Dipper bonding is always great! Like maybe playing cards or Stan showing Dipper to box?

Stan taught Dipper how to play Poker, and turns out, he’s really good at it

Listen. That AHWU though.

Everyone knows no good comes of trusting information ascertained through interrogation and threats without checking to ensure it’s honestly truthful. Sure, most at this point are well aware of what the FAHC do to those who double-cross them but there will always be assholes trying their luck and the Fake’s didn’t get where they are by being sloppy.

Which means someone inevitably drawing the short straw, left behind to babysit a bound hostage while the others go out and check the accuracy of all their shiny new information. It’s necessary, sure, but that doesn’t make it any less tedious for whoever is stuck twiddling their thumbs and ensuring an increasingly frustrated captive doesn’t somehow worm their way free while the rest of the crew is out having fun.

The latest lovely volunteer, a paunchy red-faced benefactor of a rival crew, is kindly hosting this week’s little sit-in at his multi-million dollar mansion out in the hills, conveniently private and filled with tangible displays of his ill-begotten wealth. The man spilled the beans embarrassingly quickly, rolled over on his allies at the very first sight of Ryan looming into view, but despite the ongoing helplessness of his position the departure of the more notorious members of the FAHC quickly led to the resurgence of his overpowering arrogance. Which is unwise really, considering it’s Trevor who was left behind to keep watch.

Trevor is a bit of a mystery outside the Fake’s, his reputation full of contradicting stories and inexplicable behaviour; he is a background lackey or a secret member of the upper management, he is alarmingly energetic or disturbingly apathetic, utterly naive or hiding violent depths, he is simply support or yet another of Ramsey’s unstoppable killers. Whatever he is, Trevor is unquestionably unnerving as all hell, inscrutable and unscrupulous with the driest humour, silly jokes undercut by biting sarcasm delivered so impassively it takes a moment for the insult to hit.

Trevor is busy. Trevor is bored. Trevor has time on his hands, an idiot at his mercy and countless priceless objects at his disposal. Increasingly loud complaints from an entitled millionaire combined with ongoing updates indicating that the information is checking out and the victim need not lose any fingers leads Trevor to all of 15 minutes of restraint before he channels a cat and starts knocking things off shelves. 

It starts small, heavy objects dropped more for the sound than the damage, crashes used as punctuation, as punishment, but as the hostage’s anger grows so too does Trevor’s grin, escalating to smashing glass and porcelain, shattering statues and fine china, all the while running his mouth in exaggerated surprise; I wonder what will happen if… oops. Well how about this one? Oh no. Oh dear what a mess, better try this- no? Oh. Well this is pretty! I’ll have to be more careful- oh darn, butterfingers thats me, now i hope this isn’t important…

By the time the other’s swing back around the entire lounge room is a disaster zone, newly gagged hostage snarling muffled yells from his seat in the centre of the chaos, visibly incensed as Trevor pats his back on the way past in an unhurried stroll, tutting and tisking all the way; gosh what a mess, who could live like this? Someone really aught to clean this up, you should have this taken care of man, have some pride in your home.
