Hello Queen of Genovia
I know very little about this woman except that every time I see an interview clip with her, she’s doing something like this.
Tyler Hoechlin as Dylan on “Castle” (x)
(2x04 Fool Me Once)
OMFG when I saw this episode I had no idea who Tyler Hoechlin was, so I had no idea he was even in Castle. Now… now I must have all the AUs where Derek is Stiles’ music tutor. PLEASE SOMEBODY.
Real talk though: Fillion over Hoechlin, all day every day. (I mean ideally bang Hoechlin, marry Fillion, kill everyone else but if we’re sticking with the basics.)
Every time I see this, I am transported to an awkward place where I pretend I have to call Tyler Hoechlin and say, “Hey, Tyler! Great to talk to you! So, we had a character description come in for a blisteringly hot dude with a slight element of class? We thought it would be great for you. Come in clean shaven and style your hair. No peace signs. Break a leg!”
I cry a little inside whenever I consider the number of awful/weird character breakdowns that actors are asked to read for on the regular. It’s just like having people give unflattering three-sentence summaries of you AS A JOB.
ALSO I think we all need to acknowledge that this is just a version of that character in Cruel Intentions? I mean it’s a cello, not a violin, but still: hot string instrument prodigies in the house, y’all. If someone would write me a Cruel Intentions AU I would… be really grateful, I guess, is what I would do. Come on you guys: Kate Argent and Derek Hale as beautiful, manipulative, cruel step-siblings— Kate makes a bet with Derek that he can’t seduce virginal Stiles Stilinski— Danny seduces the awful jock Jackson to get info on Stiles because they went to high school together. No one dies at the end. Seriously someone please?
I NEED THIS LIKE BURNING. No, seriously, this is the ONE AU I’ve seen that could give me the Derek/Kate that I want to read SO BADLY! Also, I fucking love that movie (and the book! I read Les Liasons Dangereuses for my History of Erotic Fiction course in college, and yes, that was a real class that I took) and, and, I JUST NEED THIS OKAYYYYYY.
I, uh. Have FEELINGS about this.
Fresh out of the oven! The glaze isn’t part if the family recipe, but it does look pretty.
That’s Great-great-grandma Carlson, now that I think of it.
Grandma Carlson’s cardamom loaves. If anyone knows how cardamom ended up as a traditional ingredient in Swedish cuisine, do please let me know!
IT IS RISEN INDEED.
(Sorry, that would have come off better if I could have waited a few months.)
OMG YOU DIDN’T TELL ME IT WAS IN BRAIDED LOAVES :D
IT IS. EVENTUALLY I WILL FIGURE OUT HOW TO MAKE THEM LESS LUMPY.
(Also the little rolls are adorable. Once I’ve figured out the regular recipe in a way that makes me happy, I intend to experiment.)
(Late) Birthday + Competence Kink = Cracky AU in Progress
ladyofthelog asked for it. It’s proving surprisingly easy to write, which just goes to show that AUs are the best way to break out of a dry spell:
It starts when Chris Argent taps him on the shoulder after at the end of another grueling pre-season rehearsal. Derek’s packing up his case, trying to figure out if he needs to take his favorite bow in for re-hairing this week or if he can get away with waiting a bit longer, because his bow guy’s in LA and he’s not exactly looking forward to the three-hour drive. So he doesn’t actually mean to glare. It just sort of happens.
Argent looks unimpressed, but that’s his default expression for every mood from bored to homicidal. Derek’s probably going to survive, if only because it’s a little too close to Gala Night for him to be garroting his first violinist with a D string.
