Sometimes I remember bby Jean’s reaction when bby Eren couldn’t do the 3D Maneuver Gear device and I crack the fuck up.
Watching Eren fail basically turns Jean into this kid.
*to the tune of “our house”* I’m DRUNK in the middle of the WEEK
transgirl Parvati Patil bursts into tears when she tells her sister while they’re in primary school because all the books they read have names like Catherine and Emma and she can’t think of a girl’s name like Padma’s that fits with her heritage
and Padma, who reads more of her parents’ books and has a slightly better memory (Ravenclaw, figures) suggests Parvati, because she’s a Hindu goddess and then they’ll both have alliterative names
(Parvati doesn’t know what alliterative means but that doesn’t matter nearly as much as the fact that she has a name now)
The first person she ever introduces herself to as Parvati is Lavender Brown on the Hogwarts Express. They giggle nervously together and talk about what they’re most looking forward to about school. Then, as they approach the school, they fall silent and look like they’re going to be sick. They pick a boat together and squeeze each others hands reassuringly during the journey across the lake.
At the sorting, after Padma is (predictably) sorted into Ravenclaw, McGonagall calls Parvati’s birth name and her heart sinks. The hat sees how immensely courageous she is just navigating her life while maintaining a sense of self, and tells her that she should never once doubt that she belongs in Gryffindor. Parvati doesn’t feel like this is true because she can’t even bring herself to look at Lavender over at the Gryffindor table and see that she’s smiling and cheering for her.
It’s not until they go up to the dormitories with full stomachs and sleepy eyes that she hears Lavender running towards her, yelling “Hey! Parvati!”
Before she knows it she’s sucked into a vortex of conversation about the people they talked to at the feast and all the portraits and passageways that they’ve seen and the stairs that move and those super cute Weasley boys and I wonder whether we can learn how to make beauty products in potions?
Her heart skips a beat when she realizes that she’s followed Lavender up to the first-year girls’ dormitory, and that her trunk is already there waiting for her.
robots getting really concerned when a human yawns and then another human does as well and wondering if this is some sort of group signal that they need to respond to so they just awkwardly go “aaaaaa” to try and imitate them
robots jumping and getting really scared when a human sneezes and rushing over to check on them “DID YOU JUST BLOW A FUSE ARE YOU ALRIGHT DO YOU REQUIRE ASSISTANCE”
robots getting all worried when their human is blushing because “your surface temperature has increased and your pigment is off are you alright”
