If y'all could only understand how cringe baobei or the number of endearments y'all are using in fics actually are.
At some point y'all just have to accept that not every language use terms of endearment the same way or as frequently.
We use these titles and addresses (ie. Shijie, zongzhu etc) in their original form when there are no adequate equivalents in English, and to make the stories feel more authentic to the setting. Baobei is not authentic to any xianxia setting.
I can count on one hand the characters in cql who maybe would use baobei in a modern au. If you're not writing a modern au, you shouldn't be using it at all. Full stop.
Think how fucking weird it is if Elizabeth Bennet said "hey dude" to Mr. Darcy in Regency Era England. That's how weird it is to me when I see baobei in cql fanfics.
AND on a final note: baobei when used incorrectly is VERY SLEEZY.

One of the Kamino scientists Tookas accidentally got into the lab one day while shedding and a bit of its DNA got mixed in with Jangos, causing an entire batch of clones to have the smallest traces of catlike behavior. The scientists shrugged it off at first because there was nothing wrong with the troopers. But as they got older, little abnormalities would start to pop up here and there
they had a sudden habit of slowly slinking up next to a group of people talking, and while listening would knock something glass over.
when it was lunch time, they would run between the legs of the cafeteria workers, becoming a tripping hazard as they were trying to be served.
while 99 was trying to dust off some of the shelves, one of the cadets began to swat at his feather duster playfully
when a trainer tries to scold them or yell at them for something, they just look at them, roll over in their bunk, and fall back asleep.

This one has definite cult classic potential with its loads of funtastic practical effects and its kickass tween lead. Loved the little lady's personality and how she really owned her character. Tons of cool creature/alien/demon things with added effects that bumped the whole effort up a notch. Fun story, funny, and morbidly imaginative. Definitely one I can recommend if you're in the mood for a tween-themed comedic horror that doesn't pull any punches. 7.5/10 Check it out on Shudder. 🤘👽🤘

Crowley vs. Plants
Okay, in another thread the plant thing came up, where Crowley is kind of assumed by fandom in general to be a gardening expert, and usually depicted as having been such for a long time.
Now, I like taking bits of popular fanon and looking at them, where they come from, what actual basis they have, what other possibilities there are. It’s a whole thing I do that’ll probably get me yelled at eventually, but anyway.
Canonically, Crowley started ‘talking to plants’ after hearing about it in the 70s. It’s possible he had a plant obsession going back before that, but there’s no indication of that at all. It’s implied to be more of a fad he picked up. And in the series at least, it’s very clear that it’s become a form of dubiously healthy self-administered therapy, that he’s taking out his frustrations on the plants. But only for the last few decades, apparently.
Then there’s how he cares for them. We don’t know what sort of plant care knowledge he actually possesses. Crowley kind of makes things work around him by sheer force of will, so for instance, things in his house work when they shouldn’t and food in his fridge doesn’t go off (according to the book) and vehicles manifest music players because he expects them to be there. So he doesn’t necessarily have a green thumb whatsoever. His plants may well be large and luxurious and green solely because he expects them to be. Yelling and occasionally spraying with a plant mister might well be the extent of the effort he puts into it.
On the other hand, they are said to be the only thing in his flat he devotes any attention to. And he seems to have given some thought to his purchase of a plant mister. And we do briefly catch him listening to a gardening show on the radio as the Apocalypse looms.
So it’s entirely possible he has taken the trouble to learn a bit about plants. And it wouldn’t be too surprising, either. Crowley has a compulsive streak; the book mentions that he likes to organize things (especially when stressed) and the spare spotlessness of his flat makes me think the same is intended in the series. He needs distractions, and it helps if they’re meticulous, detailed distractions. Plant care can definitely be that. I could see it being a hobby he got surprisingly into, once he took it up on a whim, and now knows way more about it than he needs to. He almost certainly could keep them alive by sheer willpower, but maybe he takes pride in putting some effort into it.
In conclusion, he wasn’t necessarily always a plant fan, and in fact it’s likely that’s a recent thing, but whether he just uses miracles to keep them in good condition or actually has done the research and finds it more satisfying to do things the hard way is totally up to headcanon. Either would make sense character-wise, I think.
