Absolutely no offense to Sokka/Suki, but I think there should be AU content where Yue becomes the Moon but then she and Sokka just... keep dating. She uses her spirit powers to hang out with him somehow and, well, the one benefit of having given your life for your people is that at least you don't have to give up your love life for them now, right? Sokka adapts easily enough to having a spirit girlfriend, because it is frankly not the weirdest thing that's happened to him.
Potential futures, ranked from most to least angsty:
Sokka being the Moon's Husband until he dies, bringing the inevitable, tragic yet beautiful until-the-end-of-time parting that ends mortal/immortal relationships.
Avatar-world variant: Sokka dies but reincarnates, and the Moon shines more brightly on every one of his future selves, whether he knows why or not. (Sometimes he does.)
Sokka also ascends to spirithood at some point by virtue of Being The Moon's Husband, and basically becomes the Knowledge Owl Guy's nemesis because he A) is very involved in the mortal world and B) thinks that information should be free.
Variant: Sokka replaces the Ocean Spirit through some convoluted turn of events, making him and Yue the new yin-yang of Water.
Related, but different: Sokka just gets a nice house in a corner of the Spirit World where Yue stays between moonset and moonrise. If Iroh can, why not Sokka?
Anyway, this way you get the wholesomeness of these two finding happiness and love together even after everything; the comedy of Sokka actually DATING THE MOON and probably being very chill about the weirdness; and the incredible potential of an immortal spirit Sokka.
Sobbing at the interview with Ryan Corr where he says Harwin has always been interested in Rhaenyra from afar and that they found twin flames in one another and truly loved each other and he was content to live his life in service of that love and his family, even if it was behind the scenes, even if he had to take a step back 😭😭
ok but imagine nandor kinda insulting guillermo like he usually does, meaning it as a joke and laughing at it bc he finds himself funny and guillermo doesn't get angry, he doesn't look at the camera long- sufferingly, he doesn't look at the camera at all. instead he just looks at nandor sadly, simply staring at him with his lips tipped down then just walks past him calmly. and he doesn't ignore nandor after or anything, but his disappointment is obvious and nandor frantically realizes that. oh. he's losing him.
im so very normal about this
I made more for asriel+chara+gaster At The College (headcanon..? AU??) because I want it and I need it, and I have feelings.
They’re so….. they’re so. Ya know?

There were plenty of jokes about it but to me the line "the groove had ceased to avail me" is just immeasurably sad.
Look at Jonathan. He loved being a Solicitor. He was so proud presenting his credentials, and hearing Mr Hawkins call him a good boy. And when the Horrors began to set in he found his comfort and refuge in the Law.
And now the Horrors are over and he's home and he has everything he ever wanted (wealth, comfort, Mina, his own practice) and it doesn't help. He throws himself into his work to cope and it doesn't help. He has his life back and more but he no longer knows how to live in it. The Law no longer gives him comfort or refuge.
There was an episode of Babylon 5 featuring a former accountant, who loved his job and was good at it. But then he lost his wife and child in a tragic accident. And he tried to throw himself back into his work to cope and it didn't help. "The numbers didn't add up."
"The groove had ceased to avail me" hits me exactly the same way as "the numbers didn't add up." Jonathan has been robbed even of this. And it's heartbreaking.
A lot of folks were celebrating Jonathan getting his groove back but... he doesn't actually say that. What he says is: "Does it concern the Count?" He's not now finally able to get back into his old life - rather he is embracing an entirely new life as a character in the novel Dracula.
In the Babylon 5 episode, the former accountant never rekindles his love for his work. He embarks on a Quest to find the Holy Grail. Only then do the numbers once more start to add up.
Jonathan may no longer be a broken shell of a man, but he will never be our Cheerful Young Solicitor again
