So [livejournal.com profile] momebie is kind of evil, and keeps posting Jefferson/August things, which is so easy to love, because I love Jefferson a lot. Because, you know, I have a thing for angsty boys, I can't help it! And also because I really love this show, but until this ship I wasn't sure I could fandom it hardcore... I love Rumple, and I like Rumble/Belle, but it's not something I would fandom. I love Regina, but all the people shipping her with Emma are a little bit crazy, okay? And I like Snow and James, but oh my GOD does David piss me off, and also I like them in the context of the show, but probably not so much as something I would fandom, so WHATEVER.

So I was thinking about Jefferson/August tonight at work (like you do, when you hate work and are giving in to the inevitable) and I was thinking about how it's hot and all when they're together, and I like the ship and all, but man, I also really like the idea of Jefferson just kind of adding August in as more angst to his life as one more thing he can't have or whatever, because you know HE NEEDS MORE OF THAT, and also because I also really like the August/Bae stuff that [livejournal.com profile] momebie has written, and then I had to stop thinking about it because I am not writing and arghhhh.

(also why the fuck can I not find any good Jefferson icons, I will have to do some more hardcore searching later.)

This of course led me to thinking about Remus and Sirius, because that ALWAYS HAPPENS, because they will never stop being my home in fandom, and how I was drafting a fic for them in my head the other night, and considering actually writing it for once, and somehow this led me to thinking about next gen and I don't know how the fuck THAT happened, and then I had this crazy idea for a next gen fic, but I DO NOT WRITE NEXT GEN, and I know nothing about the typical next gen anything because I have never read or dabbled or whatever in next gen at all, and yet I still kind of want to write this stupid thing, and WHAT IS MY LIFE, YOU GUYS.

But more on the Remus/Sirius fic, because that is the most likely to happen: I kind of want to make it a 5 Times fic, because I like 5 Times/Things fics in general, and also because I think it would work well as one, except that I would have to figure out a fifth 'time' because I only have 4 right now, but ALSO I feel like it would be lazy to write it in that format in this particular case, and I should probably try to actually frame a story together, but I do like being lazy in general, and I just don't knoooooow.

Also, if you can't tell, I am very ramble-y and not completely coherent just at the moment, so I should probably wait to write ANYTHING until I can string sentences together properly again, but you know, whatever. These things are eating my brain and this has not happened in a while, and I KIND OF LIKE IT.

I AM A LITTLE BIT EXCITED ABOUT THIS POST. LET'S GET TOGETHER AND DRINK MILKSHAKES AND TALK ABOUT THEIR STUPID FACES.

And I mean, I don't really think about it that way, but I also love the idea that August is just one more thing Jefferson can't have. And I mean, at the end of the season when the magic comes rolling in Jefferson has to have his hands full with having his daughter back, since her memories would have returned too, so it's not like he'd have time to really worry about it for a few days, but then one night it would just hit him, in the dark while he couldn't sleep, that that presence isn't there anymore. Because August has to go on with helping Bae (which is a bit of personal fanon that I'm going to be sad about them dashing next season if it's not true) and isn't around. And also because I think August wouldn't want to get in the way of Jefferson having his daughter back, knowing how important it is to him.

I think you've actually just helped me with this stupid epic fic I'm writing. So thanks for that! The fandom of four welcomes your contributions!

I couldn't find any good Jefferson icons either, though, which is why I settled for ALL the Kings icons instead.

Remus/Sirius is my home too! I love them, I miss them, but I like knowing they're always there.

I AM NOT USUALLY COHERENT AND JUST MOSTLY FLAIL, BUT OTHERWISE I LOVE THIS PLAN.

It's got to be REALLY awkward for Grace, too, remembering Jefferson and also remembering her fake family and I JUST HAD MORE ANGST THOUGHTS, I AM NOT WRITING THIS SHIT, KL, I'M REALLY NOT.

Also, mostly I just hope that August doesn't, you know, stay wooden. But yes, I hope that he goes on helping Bae as well, since I am 100% behind the idea that Bae is who he was helping in the first place. (It seems so obvious to me! Apparently it's not so obvious to some people! If I'm wrong, I'll just feel silly, that's okay.)

Always glad to help with writing, though :D

I AM ALSO OKAY WITH JUST FLAILING. AND NOT COMPLETING SENTENCES. AND AND.

And yeah, Grace is going to have it rough, I think. Especially because not only does she remember her dad and the family she's lived with, but Jefferson isn't the dad she remembers anymore. Most everyone else can get sudden jolts of memory and just go back to what they were before, but he's been cognizant of both lives this whole time and it's changed him and made him angry and bitter. I think that's most of what he wanted to save Grace from when he begged Regina to just make them forget. He doesn't want Grace to remember another family, but he also doesn't want Grace to have to learn to tiptoe around this man he's become. He wants her to have her father back and for them to go running through the forest and take his maps and go exploring. And right now he just can't. Or at least, he can pretend to, but it will always be off, and she might sense that. It's tricky.

AND IT'S OKAY IF YOU WANT TO WRITE IT. SOMEONE BESIDES ME AND DANIELLE AND STEVIE NEEDS TO. *cough*

It also seems obvious to me! When they showed him on the phone in "The Return" saying that they need to accelerate their plan I just assumed he was talking to Henry, because that's who we see him with in the next scene. And that is, in fact, how whoever is editing the Wiki reads it. But I don't think it necessarily has to be Henry, and August knows an awful lot about Rumple and the dagger, so the pieces fit together too well for it to not be Bae that he's helping. Not that I don't think August is resourceful enough to suss that stuff out on his own, but why not put two heads together if you can? And if I'm wrong about that I will feel SAD. Which is why I need to hurry and actually write this and post it before it becomes non-canon. :p

IF YOU'VE NEVER READ A NEXT GEN FIC, I CAN RECOMMEND ONE TO YOU. MAYBE YOU'D LIKE TO READ ABOUT TEDDY AND JAMES AND HOW THEY'RE IN A ROCK BAND? THESE CHUCKS DON'T BURN LIKE THEY USED TO. READ IIIIIIIIIIIT.

Also, please write all the things.

HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO RESIST LINKS, EM? HOW?! YOU ALL KNOW I HAVE NO WILLPOWER.

I actually did start the Remus/Sirius. Anything OUAT will require some rewatching... and the next gen idea I have is very unlikely since... idk, it would end up having to be very long, and I just don't think I have the patience or enough desire to work through it all.

In that case, you should also read:

Many Happy Returns, in which Teddy visits his dad's grave on his birthday (PG, ~4,600 words)
The Importance of Colloportus, in which Teddy and James get caught by Harry (PG-13, ~4,300 words)
A Pensieve's No Excuse Not To Start Over, in which James has amnesia and forgets the last 8 years of his life, including his marriage to Teddy (R, ~33,000 words)

(Yes, I've basically recced everything [livejournal.com profile] sopdetly has written for this pairing. READ IT ALLLLLLL.)

YAY FOR REMUS/SIRIUS!
