READ TO HIM/HER. ALWAYS.
have Neil Gaiman’s audiobooks on speakers for him/her. ALL OF THEM.
except for The Graveyard Book. That one I will do myself.
have Jim Dale read him the Harry Potter books.
read him the Cirque Du Freak Series, maybe. (Mr. Tiny still fucking scares me.)
have my husband read him the Percy Jackson chronicles.
have famous British actors read him Shakespeare’s poems, among others.
read him The Da Vinci Code Series (in Order, please and thank you)
I’ve been telling myself that for the last hour.
So you keep telling me, is on the tip of Riley’s tongue. Not that he means Jared, specifically, since they just met, but… He’s heard the sentiment, if not those exact words, over and over again ever since he was brought to Raven Rock. It makes him just as uncomfortable now as it did the first time they said it.
“I… uh. Thanks.” Riley rubs the back of his neck, self-conscious. He knows he has Pre-War training, but… He never really felt like he was that great of a soldier. And he knows it’ll only be a matter of time before they find out for themselves, so maybe he should say something…
… but then they might not help him find Shaun, once this… new war is over. All he can hope to do is train more, make himself better, make himself useful, before he blows it.
“I hope I really can be of help.”
Everything still tastes like ash. The very thought turns stomachs, sends minds down dark paths, yet there is too much to be done to facilitate time spent on the matter. It is for the best: idle minds would be driven to despair.
For the first week Thor, as with many of his surviving companions, had thrown himself into damage control. As the universe convulsed in the wake of tragedy the Asgardian’s priority had been first to Midgard: to saving what lives he could, effecting repairs where possible, and guiding what remained of his people to Earth. Constant reports and repetitions of the tragedy were already fraying his nerves. Natasha, Okoye and Steve were foremost in the business of handling governments and institutions. Good: it freed up Thor to focus his nervous energy on physical issues and saved mortals from his moods. Guilt and restlessness are a dangerous combination.
Gifted now with Stormbreaker, Thor had intended to make a few journeys throughout the Nine Realms once Midgard was stable enough to see what aid he could offer (desperate to assuage the helplessness in his soul), but the opportunity did not arise. Rocket’s thoughts had turned to the Guardians. That had escalated rapidly: between Rocket and Banner’s accounts of events there were still several warriors unaccounted for. That, of course, came with the unspoken belief that survivors were unlikely between both snap and the very fact Thanos had reached Earth armed with nigh all infinity stones.
Still, he owes it to investigate. He particularly owes it to Anthony.
Once the decision is reached Thor offers little time to say farewells. Leaving Valkyrie and the Asgardians still recovering in Wakanda, he informs only Rocket and Steve of his intentions before taking up his axe.
Magic and science may very well be considered one and the same in many respects. The benefit, however, of magic, is that it can be channelled and operated with minimal understanding of certain principles underpinning the mechanics. Thor has no need to know exactly where in the universe his companions are: if there are bodies, the Bifrost will locate them and deposit him nearby.
Several tense seconds pass as he hopes to make that connection; a breath he hadn’t been conscious of holding slips from his lips when the skies darken and a rush of colour envelopes his solid frame. Not all dusted, then. It hardly bears dwelling upon what he might encounter but it would not be the first time in his long life that Thor has brought the bodies of dear ones home.
He arrives aboard the ship in a blaze of light, residual energy leaking into systems which reboot and whirr into action. It takes only a moment for eyesight to adjust, quick to seek out a familiar face. Grief makes memory hazy but this is not his first time aboard: it is the Benatar.
Thor’s surprise, then, is palpable when he finds no trace of a Guardian but, rather, a mortal. A strikingly familiar mortal in a state which would twist his heart were he not conscious of the fact that the others’ is still beating. At once he strides to close the space, dropping to his knees, voice reduced to a low murmur.
send ♫ for a performance headcanon.
there is one aspect of performing that mav is good at in the grand scheme of idol talents and it is his vocal abilities, honey has the voice of an angel. his rapping should be illegal (he will forever make half-hearted attempts but mav just wasn’t cut out to be a rap legend) and his dance routines are generally simple, easy, and subpar compared to most other idols’ choreographies (don’t let him do anything particularly difficult or he will end up hurting himself). though he still has small and easy dance routines that go along with his songs, nothing advanced or difficult is going to take place in a maverick kwon song or any song he’s involved in.
nonetheless mav has amazing stage presence despite just singing and occasionally playing an instrument while performing. he’s always been a charismatic person and is good at connecting with his audience both when performing or just chatting with them between sets (because it is no a secret that he enjoys to monologue when he can and practically hold entire ted talks during his shows). his shows are generally played in smaller venues so it allows him to have intimate moments with them all and he prefers it that way.

i cannot stress how much well written foreshadowing makes me go absolutely frickin bonkers
serious simming question: does censor bot still work so wildly and unpredictably as when it was introduces or do I can post pixel nipple without putting a giant pic of the helmet over it?
studio jams : closed starter for @vldseungyong
where : seungyong’s studio, kmg building
when : sometime in the weekend, 10pm
tap. clack. tap. the sole of his white sneakers trudges through the hallways of kmg, and it echoes with the sounds of items clamoring together inside the backpack slung behind his back, revealing an eerie soundtrack of stepping into a place where he shouldn’t be (but in reality, he’s welcome, and it’s the invisible collar that’s shortened his breath to think so). he continues on, hands in pocket eyes detailing the outlines of each door, peeking through the small rectangular glasses, until he finds the pink hair he’s looking for.
“yo, yo, yo, yo,” he greets like a broken record of off-tune EDM drop, with the shadows under his eyes. “i’m here, and i’m in a fantastic mood.” and that he was, shown through the gleaming grin, deepening the dimples on his cheeks and his arms stretched out tossing the bag aside. no rhyme or reason, it was just the manner in which the sun set and the sounds of passing cars reverberated through the air that left the soloist floating astray on cloud nine: it’s just one of those days, and perhaps, it would do some help to sleep for more than two hours.
so, he stands there ready to be embraced in welcoming arms by the elder, but in reality, a brief greeting lying in a mutual hand grab ensues before he settles his fervor into the empty chair the abyss that is his unzipped bag, and the only items consist of a small tin, a pack of cigarettes, his wallet and the hard drive. (he reacts with a half-dazed jinx of a chuckle). “i have a hard drive but no macbook, but luckily i’ve backed up beats a few days ago. so we might be able to find something?” the words mumble out of his lips, accompanied with a lively grin. nothing was more exciting than a sporadic collaboration with no expectations.
“This is TOM, sending a message on all open channels from the Ghost Planet Spaceship Absolution. So there’s this guy named Rick, and I kid you not, he turns himself into a pickle. He’s called Pickle Rick. It’s the funniest shit I’ve ever seen.”
Thanks for thr interest! :D he’s romantic I think? I’m still trying to figure it out. It’s,, weird. Uhh somewhere between platonic and romantic but like. In an adult way
Okay, so I think I’ve worked out what I want to do with Ganondorf. The OPTION for Ocarina of Time Ganondorf will still be there, simply because there are a number of things I still want to explore with that particular reincarnation of the Dark King, but I think my MAIN Ganondorf will be a sort of… ‘Redemption Arc’ Ganondorf.
… because I am a sucker for muses turned good ( or, trying to be ), as one can tell with my Dark Link ( and I am complete ASS at playing baddies, so… here we are).
Since BOTW 2 Ganondorf is still so up in the air, given we only have that one trailer to go off of, I think I might use that to my advantage ( plus, Rehydrated Ganondorf. Like, yes. Hello. Only beautiful muses up in here, thank you ). I think I want to have it where this particular Ganondorf is very much aware of his past selves, and very much TIRED of being vengeful and bitter. If the goddesses are only going to keep working him, Link, and Zelda into this vicious cycle where they seek to KILL him over and over and over again, then this time, he’s going to defy them as best as he can through PEACEFUL means.
Now, this might seem MEGA EXTREME, but it’s the only way I can think of to kind of… work Ganondorf into all the games WITHOUT having to play every separate incarnation of him (because I do not want to, lmfao). Clearly, this dried up prune we see in the BOTW 2 trailer has been there for quite some time, and is still very much alive - why? Not revealed yet, but TIME plays a very important factor in this evidently (and, no, I don’t mean the HERO OF TIME, lmfao). I’m going to take this concept of time and RUN WITH IT, and we’re going to have it that, somehow, this revived Ganondorf can toy with the concept of time. Perhaps he’s able to tap into the eras of his past incarnations and manifest— and it’s in these separate timelines that he’ll dangerously attempt to sway the tides of fate elsewhere. Could mean a run in with that era’s hero, could mean a very weird encounter with that era’s Ganondorf - who knows.
This makes very little sense, I know, but we’re basically playing with TIME TRAVELING, I’M-SICK-OF-THIS-VILLAIN-SHIT GANONDORF.
