WTF EMILY IM AT WORK

WELL I’M HAVING EMOTIONS

I really like this. I approve.

I really would be pleased if it turned out to be something like this in canon. Because 1. Charlie doesn’t feel like he needed “more time” and could prepare emotionally for his death, and 2. is a clearer motivator for his (apparently new, considering Will’s reactions in the pilot) blatant manipulations.

“He didn’t know a family would be his legacy” *cries on the floor*

Same.

You know, I’m having a hard time as it is already. Yet, I like where your head is at. *gets popcorn and shock blanket*

My head is always in amber waves of angst. 

So, youknowyouweremuchmorethanthat gave me prompts ages ago, and I’m just the worst. So it’s a little late (but not quite a week! So there’s that!) But here’s the first of those prompts:

Will and Mac decide to have Thanksgiving with their staff, and comes the times when they say what they are thankful for.

——————————-

With everything happening, no one was really able to go home for Thanksgiving.   It was Mac’s idea to host Thanksgiving dinner for the team, and Will was on board until he realized that his new fiancée’s plan was to host it at his apartment.   “Your apartment is bigger, and your kitchen is better,” she argued, giving him what she hoped was her most charming smile.   “This is a terrible idea,” he argued. “You don’t even know how to cook.”   “Well, that’s why you’re going to cook the turkey,” she grinned at him, pressed a quick kiss to his lips and hurried away before he could argue.   That’s how he found himself preparing a turkey for his team as Mac supervised and drank wine.   "I think you got the better end of this deal,” he grumbled, and she laughed, swirling the wine in her glass and taking a long drink.   “Oh come on, supervising is hard,” she replied, and she came up behind him, running a hand over his back and kissing his cheek.   "This isn’t even a holiday you should celebrate,” he mumbled.   “Hey buddy, I’m as American as you are,” she shot back. “I bleed red, white, and blue too. I watch baseball and eat apple pie!”   “You do neither of those things,” he grinned at her, turning around to face her.   “I watch baseball with you!” She argued.   “Under duress,” he laughed. The doorbell rang just as he was leaning into to kiss her, and he groaned as she pulled away.   “This was your worst idea ever,” he told her as she waved away his words, hurrying to the front door.   The first ones there were Maggie and Jim, and Mac was pleased to see that things were slightly less awkward between the two of them than they had been recently. She caught Will’s eye with a mischievous glint in her eyes and he shook his head.

10 books tag

tagged by makepatronusesnothorcruxes and gretaprewett

Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you've’ve tagged them.

  • The End - Lemony Snicket

Anyone who is around me for 10 minutes or more will usually be subject to extended ranting about these books. Certainly shaped my development and understanding of justice, family, love, and sugar bowls.

  • The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes - Sir A. C. Doyle

I was always confused and offended by what (real life) people said when they described the character Sherlock Holmes. The stories are fantastic, however. Specifically “The Adventures of the Copper Beeches.”

  • The Horse and His Boy - C. S. Lewis

Shasta and Aravis. What else do you want from me.

  • Libby on Wednesday - Zilpha Keatley Snyder 

A passage in here describes the process of transitioning from various forms of yourself, and it allowed me to feel understood at a time where I was just beginning to understand people. 

  • Tales of Reginald - Saki (H. M. Munroe)

Sense of humor claims my love, and as such, Saki has possessed my heart since I first read “The Open Window.”

  • Skeeter - Robert Shaffer 

What I got out of this was a vividly clear portrayal of emotional attachment and dependency, from a male perspective.

  • Anne of the Island - L. M. Montgomery 

It’s like the perfect cup of tea. Sweet and funny and challenging and sad.

  • Lolita - Vladimir Nabokov

Recommended by the first author on the list. That should say enough about this.

  • Peter Pan - J. M. Barrie 

I can still remember the almost blinding anger I felt at the end of this book. That’s all I have to say about it.

  • Through a Glass Darkly collection - Agatha Christie 

Destroying people by your presence and/or emotional attachment (love, if you will) is a reoccuring theme here that fascinated me and still does.

Honorary mention to the unpublished: 

  • Chasing Heroes - Kimberly McNeil

There will come a day when the world gets to experience these books, and shippers everywhere will be heard screaking from the mountaintops.

Tagging: Whatever the first people who come to mind or are on my dash plus all of you guys, specifically my Darvey/Olicity fam.

youknowyouweremuchmorethanthat replied to your post:Even though I really don’t want them to have a kid…

I have the image of Will taking their kid to the grocery store stuck in mind idk it’s just too cute

Mine’s more than a little bit based off the last time my Dad visited me at college and took me shopping and I was SO INSISTENT I was going to pay and he kept throwing shit into the cart that he knew I liked to drive up the price so HE WOULD PAY and I’m imagining a like 18 year old blonde-haired dark-eyed girl rolling her eyes going “Daaa-aaaad this is why Mum usually comes” because their daughter goes to Sarah Lawrence so it’s super close and she’s kind of a homebody and then he takes her and her suitemates out for dinner and the suitemates are super excited because FREE FOOD AT AN EXPENSIVE PLACE AW YEAAAH and Will’s everyone’s favorite dad lbr
