Little-known downsides of immortality:

Tearing your favourite article of clothing and discovering that it’s irreplaceable because the technique of its manufacture has been lost

Realising you’ve thought of the perfect comeback to someone who’s been dead for three hundred years

Not being able to eat your favourite dish anymore because the source of some critical ingredient has gone extinct

Having strong opinions about sports that are no longer played

Getting a song from the 13th Century stuck in your head and being unable to get it out because you don’t remember how it ends and you’re the only person on Earth who knows it

Having that perfect pun you’ve been waiting forever for a chance to use stop working due to linguistic drift

Worked like a debutante’s coming out used to… (incidentally the debutante’s coming out is where we get the terminology) and so being gay or trans or what have you meant getting presented to the reigning monarch.

“Your majesty, may I present… a gay”

I would love this as a story conceit? Like, an upper class who have to engineer elaborate confections to present the younger generation of queers in the Appropriate Manner for Social Advancement. 

“Have you heard about Lady Hemington’s youngest? They’ll be coming out as genderqueer!”

“Oh, poor dear Lady Hemington - so hard on the heels of the first two. She can hardly arrange a come-out until the first two have had their chance to shine…”

“And the cost of another nonbinary ball - !”

“The costume changes alone will be terribly hard to bear. But, of course, one mustn’t skimp. Not when that wretched Lucrezia Netherbottom threw such a come-out for her first.”

“Oh, I know, my dear, I know. I’m so terribly grateful that my wife was able to present our boys at Court herself - I’d simply die if the Netherbottoms had an advantage in wooing the Prince, just because Lucrezia’s quite willing to spend thousands on a French cosmetic surgeon.”

“And you’ve got that dear little daughter who’s looking quite Hard Butch, isn’t she?”

“Oh yes, we do hope it isn’t just a phase; ‘twould be such a nice change to throw a proper Lumberjane Ball…”

No seriously, I need a series of romance novels set in this universe.

I’m so sad I can’t find the image that went with this, but it was just Clint running away from something. Which inspired the following chat…

coppersam: oh my god for a second I thought this was grown-up Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes, not Clint
coppersam: And now I want a fic where Calvin grew up to be Clint
low fur: That would be the weirdest crossover ever.
kungfunurse: that seems very oddly appropriate from what I know of comic!clint
low fur: Wait, who would be Hobbes?
bookbabe: Natasha
low fur: That would fit.
coppersam: Clint keeps adopting troublemakers who like tuna sandwiches. “When I was a kid I thought my stuffed tiger was real. Turns out she was real and she was a Russian assassin.”
low fur: LOL, I just realised that would make Steve and Tony Clint’s exasperated parents.
bookbabe: ….are they not?
low fur: Well I mean yes, but now imagine Tony listening to Clint complain about sludge for food.
coppersam: “It’s called a SMOOTHIE”
low fur: Poor Dummy, he tries so hard but its kale you know, it’s GREEN.
low fur: Wait can we make Bucky Susy?
coppersam: you know honestly Bucky fits Hobbes even better than Natasha. Half-imaginary, violent, hides from other people
low fur: Hobbes is very good at guerilla attacks. From high places.
bookbabe: I can’t see either natasha or bucky wearing jams though
low fur: I can’t imagine Natasha willingly going on a kamikaze sleigh ride through the woods more than once. But I can see Bucky doing it.
low fur: Also I can’t stop laughing at the thought of Steve’s expression.
bookbabe: Steve “it builds character” Rogers
coppersam: Well I’m talking more about metaphor than direct transposition. Like Clint had a wild stuffed tiger as a kid…now he has replaced it with Bucky Barnes
kungfunurse: Honestly I can see a grown up clint with a beat up stuffed tiger in his quiver who takes it everywhere and refuses to talk about it. But is caught having EXTENDED metaphysical conversations with the stuffed tiger when the thinks he’s alone
low fur: The question we then have to ask is does Clint’s belief that Hobbes is real transpose to reality? Or even - does Loki assume Hobbes is real because that’s what Clint believes so strongly? And thus the next time Loki attacks or whatever, he looks around for an attack tiger…

Not quite the same, but someone did write a series where Calvin goes to work for Tony and Thor can see Hobbes.

Aw, I love that series :)

I ship Joan Watson and Amy Santiago and no one can stop me.

Amy following Joan around like a little gay puppy. Over-excitedly complimenting her outfits. Making soft meeping sounds of aroused distress whenever Joan deduces something. Begging Joan to mentor her, mentor her hard.

#hobbit and I agree#jake would be so into it#literally incapacitated with delight#sherlock would be encouraging#joan would be intrigued#amy would be ADORABLE#jake meanwhile would be trying to be sherlock’s new best friend#to sherlock’s infinite horror#of course joan would point out it’s strange that sherlock finds jake so irritating#given how much they have in common wrt lifestyle and hygiene habits#offending sherlock thoroughly#there is a DIFFERENCE watson#between being moderately eccentric and nontraditional in one’s methods#and being an immature slovenly MANCHILD#right and which one are you again?

I can’t actually remember ever reading something like this, but I feel positive that it definitely exists somewhere in fandom, so somebody tell me where to find it:

 One guy asks two girls to go on a double date with him and his friend. The girls are like “sure, sounds fun!” and the guys are like “score!” until they show up for the date and the girls hold hands, and sit next to each other, and one of them gives the other one a little cutesy couple neck kiss and the other asks the guys how long they’ve been together. And suddenly the guys aren’t really sure how to explain that they really thought they were going on a different kind of double date so they just kind of go along with it and, well, you know how this ends.
