For those who don’t know, I started watching Ripper Street recently. I’ve been watching an episode a night and just finished season two today. So I’ve only been a fan of the show for 16 days now.
In that short time, I have already talked to several lovely people in this fandom and gotten so much love and support for the Jackson x Drake x Reid (yup, I’ve decided he will definitely be in it) fanfic I’m currently working on.
This fandom reminds me a lot of the Hannibal fandom. Both are shows that don’t receive as much love and recognition as they should, and both are shows that have the kindest fans I have ever gotten the chance to get to know.
As of right now, I don’t follow too many RS blogs because I don’t want to spoil myself. But in two weeks I shall be all caught up and look forward to being able to follow more people and more actively participate in the fandom.
Thank you to everyone who has talked to me about anything and everything so far, and I can’t wait to hopefully get to know more of you soon enough!!!! :)
By any means Draco was as happy as he could be. He had a beautiful wife who still loved him unconditionally even after the thirteen years they’d been married.
They had four wonderful children, a fabulous house and a job that enabled him to work part time so he could be with the children more after missing so much when Lyra and Scorpius were little.
“Are you sure that you are going to be alright?” His wife asked for the third time that morning. Herself, Hermione and Ginny had been purchased a Spa day from himself, Potter and Weasley. “I mean I can always —”
“— Go! Okay. There’s not many times that I am going to willingly push you out of the door and not drag you upstairs.”
“Well since Cassie and Caelum was a product of you dragging me up the stairs maybe you let me take a quick potion before dragging anywhere” she smirked. “But fine, if you need me —”
“— I will call from that mobeely thing.”
“Mobile. But Cassie knows how to use it” she added as she re-checked her bag.
“Should I be concerned that my three year old is a genius?”
She looked up, brushing her hair back over her shoulder as he felt himself time travel. Her eyes taking him to the moment at the Yule Ball when she smiled the exact same way. “If you wasn’t before, you should be” she laughed, kissing his cheek. “I’d also keep a good eye on Caelum.. He keeps getting his head stuck in buckets.. But, Have fun.”
The moment their front door clicked shut the house changed. Daddy was in charge and it spelt one thing and one thing only.
He had always assumed his wife was over the top, she did have a serious issue with over exaggerating but she had been bang on the money with their children. They were monsters. Cassie, his dark haired twin with the brains of a teenager seemed to be the mastermind. He blamed the books that his wife fed her or that she answered each inquisitional question as if speaking to someone much older. Caelum was here nor there in it until Cassie would bat her eye lids and he’d become enchanted by her power, the two twins spoke in code and he’d be damned if he ever figured it out. Scorpius, the eldest boy, was clearly Cassie’s bodyguard, but then he had always been especially protective over his two sisters.
Three against one didn’t bode well for Draco.
But to top it of. There was Lyra, the one girl that was fully a daddy’s girl. He surely could count on her. Or so he thought.
An hour in and he felt he was having an argument with himself. His plan to take the children out to meet the Potter’s and Weasley children ended up with them all in his back garden and the squealing and high pitched noises he had hoped to evade at the park was now flooding his eardrums in the kitchen. The three father’s decided that enough was enough. Their plan to tire them out only seemed to allow them to build of one another and two hours since they had arrived, their garden was a no adult zone.
James and Scorpius were flying the ‘perimeter’ as they called it, armed with water balloons. Cassie seemed to be on some sort of throne with Caelum, Hugo and Albus by her side as Lyra, Lily and Rose made what seemed to be house.
Lyra who he had thought wouldn’t allow such nonsense to happen, had been taken over to the dark side quite quickly. But then, she always had his taste for power.
“Are we really being dictated by our children?” Draco asked.
“Seems that way.”
“How do the women do it?” Ron asked as he stared out at the garden.
The other two looking at him as if he had asked something ridiculous, “because their terrifying that’s how.”
“We need to do something, come on we have one up on them. I’m a Slytherin, you two are brave and shit” Draco said banging his hands lightly on the counter in hope of drumming up a plan.
“Except, they have Cassie” Ron snarled.
“Which is basically the equivalent of us having Hermione..” Harry said. “How the hell did your kid end up being so smart?”
“Beats me. I assume it’s to do with her side of the family not mine” Draco shrugged. “Do you want to know something I learnt.. Cae is allergic to peanuts.”
“Yeah?” Harry said.
“Well.. The last time I remembered he loved peanuts. I almost killed him. Between two people, they have one weakness. The boy is allergic to peanuts.”
Harry and Ron looked at him gone out.
“I don’t know my children. I didn’t know that my son was allergic, I didn’t know how good a flyer Scorp was until he practically near assaulted me when I attempted to retrieve my book from them and that my youngest daughter is —”
“— a vindictive mastermind?” Ron added as Draco nodded. “Don’t get your wand in a twist. I didn’t know that Rose spoke like a hundred year old wizard and that she ‘dumbed’ things down when I was around. My wife and daughter have intellectual conversations.. When I’m not around.”
Harry looked at him sympathetically. “Albus hates flying.”
The two men looked at him gone out.
“Yeah I know. James.. Natural. Albus, terrified.”
“Sure he’s yours?” Draco smirked.
Harry looked at him with his eyebrow raised, “because he doesn’t look like me at all?” The sarcasm rich in his voice.
“What the hell are we going to do?” Ron said as he slumped over the counter.
“Await for the women to come home and undo the war in the back garden..” Harry suggested.
“Give them the house.. I could move” Draco said as the two laughed. “All to think this started because I tried to make them eat breakfast.”
“I told Rose of for using words that I didn’t understand” Ron added.
The two turning to Harry, “I just give Lily whatever she wants.. It’s like staring at a mini-Ginny and I’d be lying to say that didn’t terrify me.”
“And me” Ron added.
“I thought we’d have at least Lyra.. What happened there?” Harry asked as Draco just moved his head from side to side as he thought.
“She just loves to be in control.. Like her mother-”
“— and an unhealthy level of power like her Dad?” Ron smirked.
Draco nodded side to side as they all sipped some of their beer watching the children dominate the back garden into a war zone.
“We’ve lost all respect from our children and our wives haven’t we?” Harry said.
“Because we had so much to begin with” Draco suggested.
Hey, I could use a little advice. I've been feeling kinda down lately and I was wondering if you had anything that you did for yourself as a pick me up that I could try? (Also if you're taking requests, Josuyasu would be great ;v;)
((As a pick me up I usually draw my ocs in scenarios I think they’d be happy in, seeing them happy makes me happy. I also drink hot tea, listen to lots of upbeat music and anime openings, and watch silly youtube videos. Singing along to songs like the tokyo mew mew opening make me really happy! I hope at least one of these helps!! I’m sorry you’re feeling down, I send my love!!))
I’m heading back to my casefile fic and also Crossed Beams. If people would like more dedicated smut from me, I do take requests and prompts. You can make up your own, refer to these prompt lists and send as much or as little detail as you want. Anons are welcome. Thanks again for all the support!
Do people still complain to staff? I’m gunna do it anyways. @staff can you stop deleting my posts, most of the times they take me time to write up 😭✋🏽 thankyou, if you’re Muslim May Allahﷻ bless you and if not then may He guide you❤️
“Maz eats ice cream before every game! We realised it’s the secret to his success.” / “Maz gets first pick. Maz, which one do you want?” / “I think I’ll skip today.” / “What? Maz, you gotta have your rainbow sprinkles, bro.” / “I just don’t want it.” / “Serious, Maz, I got, like, three extra.” / “The things I do…‘cuse me - there we go.”
UNDRAFTED: “Okay, but what if it creates a fissure in the space-time continuum?”
Ever just lay in bed and think about your girl and your kinda just like, how in the hell did I get this lucky. What did I do right along the way to be so blessed and get such a beautiful soul to calm and love and care for mine.
I have sacrificed everything to find Avery and I’m not gonna let a couple of two-bit thieves, a senile con man and a washed-up journalist take that away from me! You care about that parade of losers so much, I’m gonna make sure they join you.
