If my future spouse in any way thinks I’m kidding when I say we’re naming our daughters Minerva and Hermione
Well, they won’t be my future spouse for much longer, will they?
I wouldn’t tell my nine-year-old self anything! I’ve seen Back to the Future enough to know that you don’t mess with time. Nice try, bro.
Let’s play Burn Read Rewrite.
It’s like Kill Fuck Marry, but with books.
Put three books in my ask.
Q: Stiles + sports?
Oh god. Stiles and sports. Sports and Stiles. He wants SO MUCH to be naturally good at sports, but he’s uncoordinated on the best day and his stamina needs a lot of work. If he doesn’t over think things he can do quite well, but most of the time he can’t turn his brain off enough to just let his body do the work.
But he loves to watch sports, especially baseball. He’s a Mets fan, a gift from his mother who knew every statistic about the team you could imagine. He has some of the older games on VHS, and rewatches them when he misses her.
Q: Sam Wilson + Bucky Barnes (i.e. Sam's thoughts on Bucky)
The thing is, Sam is one of the only people who thinks about Bucky as the person he is now. Steve will forever see him as the guy he grew up with; Natasha and other agents see him as the Winter Soldier; the few other people Bucky encounters think of him entirely in terms of what he means to Steve.
Sam fell prey to that too, at first. His only context back then was about the guy who tried to kill Steve and Steve was determined to save. But once they found Bucky, it didn’t take long for Sam to recognize the type. Bucky was a soldier who was lost, trying to recover and failing, fighting for his sanity with every breath, barely clinging to it at all sometimes. So Sam talks to him the way he’d talk to someone in his VA group; sees what they have in common, doesn’t downplay how hard it is or talk up how far Bucky has come. Doesn’t expect Bucky to be anything in particular. He just lets Bucky be Buck and takes him as he is.
(Bucky appreciates it — needs it — and doesn’t even know it.)
SAM WILSON IS A GIFT
Q: Derek + what he does with his life when there are no supernatural creatures threatening Beacon Hills
Derek joins a bowling league. (Most of the people in it are quite elderly, he’s amazed they can still pick up, let alone throw, the balls, but they all routinely kick his ass and then try to fix him up with their grandchildren. He awkwardly avoids any commitments.)
He also gets his GED — he never finished high school after the fire, and has always been a little embarrassed by that. After he has that, he takes a few classes at the local community college. (Sometimes professors flirt with him, which is weird. He gets good grades and hopes that isn’t a factor.)
He gets a job at a garage. Peter scoffs at the whole idea of employment, but Derek likes having something to do with his days, and he’s good with cars. (Customers hand him their phone numbers all the time. He throws them out immediately.)
He slowly works out his weird feelings about his body. He’s never felt comfortable in it since Kate. It’s always been an asset, but he’s also never liked it when people look him up and down or when they flirt with him. The few relationships he’s had have either been non-starters or epic disasters (and where exactly does Jennifer rank on the scale from Paige to Kate?). Until one day, when he’s in the library between classes and the librarian smiles at him, he finds himself smiling back, and it feels okay for the first time.
you know what makes me cry?
Alan’s Grant expression when he sees his first dinosaur. He’s so awed and amazed and overwhelmed and I just
plz write more ryan evans + independence stuff.
:D I haven’t written much exactly about that, but for college stuff that touches on it, I did write this series and also this. (Chad was always my fave to write about so most of my fic is his POV, but obviously Ryan is always there because of Reasons.)
(The Reasons involve sex.)
The Reasons are great. (PS, I read those so long ago but I’m going to read them again!)
send me a character + thing if you wanna know my headcanon for them and that thing
ex: molly hayes + sleeping
Q: Steve Rogers + the internet
On bad nights, Steve obsessively reads the wikipedia pages of people he knew — politicians, the Howling Commandos, whoever. He thinks about how he’d edit the entries to really reflect the people, clearing up controversies and putting in character notes, but he knows he’s biased and doesn’t think “because I knew him” really counts as a citation anyway. So mostly he just notes where they’re buried on Google maps and plans a road trip to visit them all.
WOW THAT GOT SAD SORRY I DIDN’T MEAN TO
I AM NOT OKAY NOW
