where do you fit

like many other fandom fic writers, I’m spending time today trying to wrap my head around how season two changes things…….or doesn’t. We got a lot of interesting new material yesterday; not all of it I agree with; but it’s canon? A couple other writers on tumblr have already responded with similar thoughts to mine, and I really strongly agree: I’m not one to disregard that, either. It’s a challenge to work around.

I’m not sure how this affects things, yet. Most of what I fling into fandom is AU in one aspect or another (AU series, obviously; to say nothing of Smol Shiro), but I do like to keep these grounded as much in canon/paralleling canon as much as possible. And this is…season two is so tightly wound, in terms of plot. Where do you fit things in? Season One was way more episodic, and a bit looser. Season Two drove us forwards practically from episode three, connecting and connecting and connecting. I haven’t done a full rewatch yet, so I could be wrong, but the Slots for Adventure Opportunities in Season Two are definitely smaller than in Season One. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, just…a challenge.

This…I said yesterday this made my brain hurt? 

My brain still hurts.

Hi could you do #14 #24 #27 and #34 frrom your january prompts with Newt scamander? I saw your last one and just had to request one too! Thanks you two! Keep up the good work ❤❤

Newt Scamander - “Hey, I’m with you, okay? Always.”

You licked your lips and shifted your weight from one leg to the other. You had been waiting for Newt to come home the entire day, but now he sat down on the couch with a face that made clear that his day had been far from great your enthusiasm faded.

“He’s dead.” Newt swallowed a few times. “I found a very rare murtlap and they killed him before I could get it to safety.” He turned his face towards you. His eyes were watering and his lips were trembling. “They told me I should stop doing this. They told me that I’m endangering humans.“ 

Hey…“ You locked your glance with his. ”I’m with you, okay? Always.“ You licked your lips. "You’re doing the right thing and I know that.” You shook your head. “Everyone who asks you to stop, has no idea what the world will look like if you do.” You carefully placed a hand on his arm and saw how he moaned. “Are you wounded?” You gently moved his sleeve up and saw a nasty looking wound.

“It’s nothing, really, I can fix it.” Newt wanted to move his sleeve down again, but you grabbed his hand and pulled him along with you. 

“Did the murtlap bite you?” You grabbed a wash cloth and dipped it in warm water. “Which antidote do I need to get for you?” You placed the cloth on the wound and saw how Newt bit his lips. 

“I…I don’t know. I think I’ll be fine, but thank you, really.” Newt bent his head and he avoided your glance. “You’re the only one I trust to do this.” He looked up at you again and his lips curled up into a smile. “I wouldn’t know what I would do without you.”

You smiled back at him. “I think you would eventually lock yourself up in your suitcase and wouldn’t come out again.” You bit your lip. “I do hope you won’t do that now.” You cocked your head slightly. “I wouldn’t want your child to grow up without a father.”

Newt frowned his eyebrows. He stared at you, at your belly, back at you and back at your belly. “Are you…”

You nodded. “Yes, I’m pregnant.” You saw his smile reaching his eyes and he seemed to forget about the pain of the bite wound right away. You felt your cheeks heating up when his eyes met yours. You had never seen him looking at you like that. You had never even known that he was capable of looking at someone like that.

All of a sudden he pressed his hands to your cheeks and he kissed your lips as if he never kissed you before and was afraid he would never be able to kiss you again. Once more he stared at you as if a million thoughts and images crossed his mind. 

If you keep looking at me like that we won’t make it to a bed.” You teased him and placed a hand on his chest. “But I’m glad you’re happy with the news.”

“Of course I’m happy. I’m more than happy.” He stepped back and he grabbed your hands squeezing them slightly. “We do have to make the suitcase baby-proof though." 

"Yes, we do.” You wrapped your arms around his neck and kissed him again. “Luckily we have some more time to do that.” You stared at the wound on his arm again. “But let’s make sure you won’t get in trouble because of this bite first, okay?”

“Okay.”

Mr. Scamander, what is your opinion on the North American houses, and where do you fit in?

I find it strange they are built mostly of wood, and I fit into most of them just fine.  The British are the same size as anyone else.

Slytherin boys

I still haven’t come to satisfyingly conclusions in my head as to why Scorpius is in Slytherin. But I was thinking, what if the Hat takes more than just an individual’s values/personality into consideration? It’s meant to put you where you’ll be happiest, right? Where you’ll fit best and do best? So what if it takes your Housemates into consideration as well?

Specifically, what if the hat looked into Scorpius and decided that he should be in the same House as Albus? And into Albus, and decided that he should be with Scorpius? So Albus would be happy (as we see he’d be miserable in Gryffindor regardless) because he wasn’t alone in a House separate from his family, and Scorpius would have someone who wouldn’t judge him for the Voldemort’s son rumours, who would be his good friend?

Diarmuid and Gráinne

Travelling through Ireland, you will see beautiful stone shapes called dolmens. A Dolmen is two massive, long tables of limestone. Over them as a kind of shelter is placed another giant cap stone. In the Celtic tradition these were known as  ‘Leaba Dhiarmada agus Gráinne’, i.e. the bed of Diarmuid and Gráinne. The legend tell that Gráinne was to marry Fionn, chief of the Fianna, the old Celtic warriors. She fell in love with Diarmuid. The two of them eloped and the Fianna chased them all over Ireland. They were cared for by the animals and received advice from wise people. They were told, for instance, not to spend more than two nights in any one place. It was said that when they rested at night, Diarmuid put up the Dolmen as a shelter  for his lover. The actual archeological evidence shows that these were burial places. The legend is more interesting and resonant. It is a lovely image of the helplessness which sometimes accompanies love. When you fall in love, common sense, rationality and your normal serious, reserved and respectable persona dissolve.You become revitalized. Where there is no passion, your soul is either asleep or absent. When your passion awakens, your soul becomes young and free and dances again. In this old Celtic legend, we see the power of love and the energy of passion.

John O’Donohue  -  “Anam Cara”

Here are some questions I am constantly noodling over: Do you splurge or do you hoard? Do you live every day as if it’s your last, or do you save your money on the chance you’ll live twenty more years? Is life too short, or is it going to be too long? Do you work as hard as you can, or do you slow down to smell the roses? And where do carbohydrates fit into all this? Are we really going to have to spend our last years avoiding bread, especially now that bread in America is so unbelievably delicious? And what about chocolate?

know its been a while
but I will not fake this stupid smile
‘cause you robbed me, fed me the line
Your bounty was me took all you could see
And worked just side by side
The trust and love we’d abide
Until you left home thrust with the tide
And put this hate back inside my eyes

Are you blocking all the things
that have to do with me?
Is it easier now, do you feel any release?
Tell me how you fit in
and where do you begin?
Do you toast when they toast?
Do you sin when they sin?

Stepped through your place
Lust in my eyes toyed with deceit
Planted your lies
Play it off well, say that I’m fine
Do I hold that small space in your mind?
Stuck in your web flailing my arms
Trying to break loose from your charm
Split up your mind do you some harm
No stranger to harm

How can I see anyone anymore?
And how can I feel anything anymore?

Thanks for opening up your asks! I've been wondering since the season started, where exactly do you see lance fitting into the story in the future? Looove Paul Blackthorne and I truly think Arrow got lucky with his tremendous acting but I feel like he's been under-utilised this season (thus far at least). Would love your thoughts on this! :)

Lance has been completely screwed over this season and I’m not having it. Talk about benched. He’s not even in the ballpark anymore! I completely agree. You don’t under utilize Paul freaking Blackthorne.

Once Lance sobers up, I think Arrow hit on something with him as Deputy Mayor. Here’s the problem though - he needs to be part of Team Arrow or else it feels like he’s on a different show. The Mayor’s office hasn’t been connected enough to Team Arrow, so they need to tighten that up a bit. Both Lance and Thea are languishing in S1/S2 LL Land and it’s not good. 

I do NOT know why they dropped the Mama Smoak storyline. It was not a smart move. That connected Lance to the female lead again!!! So, anytime they want to clean that mess up would be fine with me.

Honestly, most of Lance’s storylines were dropped to make room for all the newbies and I have yet to find the newbie storylines as compelling as Lance’s, so this experiment can end any day now. 

Here’s where Lance fits in for me: he is the only father figure Oliver has left. Oliver still very much wants to earn Lance’s approval, so there’s plenty to play with there. They just need to use the freaking character.
