you can see every hair in his scruffs

can you imagine coming home to see luke’s head tilted forward - his blond hair a tuft of flat curls that shielded his forehead - and pink lips slightly parted among the scruff along his chin and jawline that seemed to age him by years whilst leaning back in a recliner in your living space with his bare arms folded over the little baby boy resting on top of his chest with every rise and fall of luke’s breath and the baby’s tiny fists balled up luke’s shirt and his eyelids fluttering with those pale lashes casting small shadows across his soft cheeks and the ending credits to some movie were rolling down the television screen so you’d gingerly step towards the two boys and softly brush your lips over luke’s and the top of your baby’s head only to have luke’s eyes flutter open and he’d lazily grin at you and clumsily kiss the corner of your mouth, which would be followed by raspy murmur “hope you don’t mind my new cuddle buddy, babe”.

So, I thought, why not ruin make someone’s day with 3 minutes of beautiful devastation? hessofluffyyy, this one’s for you :)

I love this interview of Colin’s by his drama school because: 

(Read more if you dare)

1) It’s black and white, and makes Colin look EVEN BETTER (black hair, white skin? I’m in!) 

2) his accent’s thicker than usual 

3) pretty sweater/jumper 

4) just the right amount of scruff 

5) hair that nearly covers his eyebrows, and his ears (don’t think we don’t know you try to do that, Colin) 

6) flawless skin per usual 

 7) eyes! You can see his every eyelash and they are perfect 

8) he looks so much younger and that’s always awww-worthy 

9) he looks so much less tired than he’s looked of late 

10) should I even mention lips? OK, yes, just stare at them for a second… or two… Or the entire video. And the way he talks… I’m a writer and I still have no words to describe it. Like he’s trying to convince the camera to kiss him? I sound like a bad fanfic now, and I’m stopping all further thoughts of Colin and kissing in the same scenarios stat.

11) OK, should we move on to the actual video? I’ve had it paused at 0:07 all this time. First off, HE’S SO HAPPY to be talking about his old school. Clearly he has fond memories of the place :D 

12) he’s so smiley

13) so much positive attitude (at this point, we take this for granted with Colin, but do you realize how seriously hard it is to be positive and nice for as much of the time as he is??) 

14) all the philosophy on learning, all the philosophy on LIFE (I want to know who taught Colin all of it cos I want a lesson too) 

15) this screenshot of when I paused it to write more things perfectly sums up this entire video and what it does to me 

16) all the head bobs, “mmm’s” and “uhh’s” 

 17) how he pronounces “pond” (what is it with him pronouncing bodies of water in the most adorable way?) 

18) all the enunciating, from Mr. Mumbles himself, good job honey, also his voice is so smooth and low, low, low, low (OK let’s not desecrate Colin with bad song references Helen) 

19) who knew “theme” could be such a sexually frustrating word?? 

20) geeky laugh at “marble Archie,” and talking about the audience shouting at you, OK seriously, I need to come back to this list later while I go scream in a pillow at how cute you are 

21) (I’m back), the way he BLINKS, oh my god, why did I ever think this list would be a good idea? 

22) how he’s soo pleased to now be living his dream :D 

23) NO OMG THE NEXT VID IN THE PLAYLIST I SAVED THIS ON IS THE HUNGER MAGAZINE ONE STOP IT STOP IT WHERES THE PAUSE BUTTON- *dies*

Editor’s note: Helen hopes you enjoyed the show, please gather all belongings on your way out and try to not leave important things like your melted brain behind. She apologizes for this not making it very far elevated above an appreciation of Colin physically, and for thoroughly derailing whatever you were trying to do before. :p

  • Friend: how are you?
  • Me (internally): *Im not ok, Luke keeps growing facial hair and it's everywhere and I can't handle it. At first it was scruff and now it's getting long and he looks like a man and every time I see a picture of him I just want to touch his face or tell him to father my children...*
  • Me: I'm fine
