God you are just so fabulous and intelligent and thoughtful. Once I have children I'm going to move to Minnesota and deal with the arctic tundra just so you can teach my kids.
thank you!! this is the sweetest thing ever :) i love teaching reading and math and everything, but i think ~life lesson teaching is my favorite part
like yesterday we found a ladybug in our classroom and one of my students wanted to squish it and another boy ran up and was like “NO leave it alone, remember what Miss Becky says? we are bigger than it and it’s a living thing, too” and the first boy was like “oh right! hands are for helping, not hurting”
imagine a dragon who hoarded librarians and every so often knights come to rescue them and the librarians get very upset because the dragon is quiet and reshelves everything neatly and the knights are Very Annoying
I want a Sterek Hogwarts AU where Derek is a Lockhart-esque character, only he’s not stupid or stealing per se, it’s just, his sister is really smart and good at DADA and keeps traveling the world saving people/villages, but in the fire that killed most of their family a few years back she got scarred on half her body and she’s just really self-conscious about being a public face so she got her incredibly handsome, sweet baby brother to do it for her, and she doesn’t mind him taking all the credit, that’s fine, it means she can still travel and help people without being hindered by fame.
And Stiles is the DADA teacher at Hogwarts, and he’s wicked smart and good at his job, and he hates Derek Hale and his stupid handsome face and his obviously fake stories, there’s no way that guy is doing all this, but the kids he teaches won’t shut up about him, it’s driving him crazy. And then one year the Headmistress - Mrs. Allison Argent-McCall, wife of St. Mungo’s Head Healer Scott McCall - asks Derek to come do a series of guest lectures at Hogwarts. And she knows the truth, of course, it was her Aunt Kate who caused the fire after all - because Derek’s Uncle Peter got bit by a werewolf several years ago and the family didn’t kick him out, even helped him and encouraged his marriage to a healthy, normal witch, so Kate thought they should all burn for this - but she won’t spill the beans, she’s too nice. And Stiles just hates this, hates having to pretend like Derek is worth anything for his students’ sake, hates having to deal with him and pretend he doesn’t know he’s a complete fraud, hates how fucking good looking and just god damn earnest Derek is.
And there’s fighting and Derek’s pissed because he remembers Stiles, okay, Derek may be a few years older but he remembers Stiles at Hogwarts and how he was a smartass fucker even at the age of 13, and maybe Derek always had a slight crush on him, okay, because Stiles was quick-witted and sharp-tongued and didn’t put up with anyone’s shit but he was also extremely brave and loyal and just really, really cool, so maybe he did have a little - okay, massive, gaping, all-encompassing - crush, but it’s gone now, completely gone, because Stiles turned into such an asshole, Derek can’t believe he ever liked him.
And then I dunno at the end maybe Laura comes to sit-in the last lecture and Stiles finds out the truth, that it’s Laura doing all those things - which isn’t too surprising, Laura’s smart as fuck, unlike Derek, who’s intelligent, sure, but more just insanely kind and loyal and heartfelt to those he likes, a true Hufflepuff deep down - and Stiles should have seen it, of course Derek would help his sister out, fuck, he’s been such an ass to the guy, and then there’s angst as they both try and figure it out and get their heads out of their asses and then one day they have really, really hot, meaningful sex in one of the secret hallways behind a tapestry and if Filch walks in on them as their getting dressed again, well, no one has to know.
can we talk about how they’re sitting around with beer and take-out chinese but there are fucking candles lit like they don’t want to ruin the ambiance of this fine dining experience and Rhodey and Tony have the nerve to be dressed the fuck up in suits with ties for this shit
