I am so tired right now, but before I leave for the night, a sketch of Will and Horace I never finished
they’re probably checking out something suspicious

Ok so I have a queue set up, but I won’t be on here for the most part. Sooooo que the semi-hiatus! Maybe I might log in if I have time, but we have one week to move to a new house and for anyone who’s moved(3rd time moving this year oh my god), moving sucks. Like, really really sucks. And the new house won’t have wifi for a while so when I do log on, it won’t be for long time because I’m probably just dropping in for more boxes? I’ll answer questions and stuff but yeah I might not be on here actively for about half a month at the most.

I know that was really TMI, but yeah. See you guys later?

Do you know John Flanagan's Email? I've been told by multiple people that he always responds (even if it takes a while), and I just wanted to send him an Email. I would check the other places in the internet, but I figured if know I'd get a direct answer instead of seeing someone possibly posing as John and messaging them by mistake.

Oops, I don’t know it! It’s most likely on the main site, however. y’know, the official RA website…. that no one goes on… heh.

Who would pose as John tho like, whats the point. Its not like a celebrity its an author for a mostly underground bookseries lmao

you guys got me I’m actually John haha

Queer headcanons for my kids! Edward is biromantic homosexual; Daniel is bisexual; Malcolm is aromantic asexual; Elizabeth is a lesbian; haven't really figured out the younger girls, they're so wee. Daniel falls in love with the woman Edward's supposed to marry, who Edward's quite fond of and who loves both Edward and Daniel, and they pine a little until Mal's like "Okay, great romantic tragedy you guys are building up for, here's an idea..." and then bam polyamory.

ELIZABETH AND EDWARD ARE PRECIOUS

PROTECT AT ALL COSTS

"We Team Up With Some Vikings That Had Previously Enslaved Me" YEAH LIKE WHAT THE FRAK? "Oh, I know you stole me from my home, condemned me to a short life of freezing, hard labor, and generally considered me property before suddenly having a change of heart but HEY LET'S BE FRIENDS. BEST FRIENDS. FOREVER." Like... not even a hint of resentment?

HAHAHAH IM SO GLAD SOMEONE ALSO AGREES WITH ME ON THAT

LIKE not even a little hate? not even a little? 

Oh and the fact while Will was under the “care” of the Skandians he gets addicted to some weed so there’s that too.

I’m sure they worked out their differences as they were laughing in unison over seasick Halt though, so its all good now c:

The eldest are boys, twins. The older is Daniel, the younger is Malcolm. Daniel's serious and determined and charming and very driven in becoming a ranger. Malcolm's more mischievous and less dependable, more prone to flights of fancy and imagination. Dan practices shooting while Mal runs off to study plants in the forest, but they're both quietly expected to follow in their father's footsteps (whether they like it or not). Dan thrives under this, Mal chafes more than a little. (Cont)

Next is Elizabeth, tall and graceful like her mother, blonde and blue eyed and courteous, a shoe-in for becoming a diplomat. She can be a bit condescending, a bit snobbish, especially with her younger sister and Mal. She was recruited to teach the young Princess Madelyn her manners and the womanly arts of needlepoint and such. Though she is very close with Prince Edward, there are reports that he has eyes for someone else. Who, they can’t (or won’t) say.

The youngest of the Treaty children is Anna, who takes after her father with big brown eyes, dark hair, and a tiny, skinny little body. Unlike her sister, she seeks adventure and warfare, and her older brother Daniel indulges her and teaches her the bow and dagger against the wishes of her mother, who attempts to make her fit the mold of a lady with only good intentions. Anna and Mal have an understanding, and often go into the woods to find baby rabbits and eat wild berries.

Prince Edward is the crown prince of Araluen, the first child and only son of Sir Horace and Princess Cassandra. Tall, blond, and extremely handsome, he’s the heartthrob of the realm, and many other realms as well. Despite this, he shows little interest in any of the noblewomen or princesses his mother tries to arrange marriages with. This is because he quietly holds a torch for Daniel, his best friend since childhood.

Finally, the youngest of them all is Princess Madelyn, the feisty and slightly spoiled daughter of future Queen and Prince-Consort. Groomed for marriage to a foreign prince, she loathes the lack of freedom and loves to sneak out with her best friend, Anna, and sneak around the castle and the surrounding town.

Okay let’s skip right to my favorite part:

"This is because he quietly holds a torch for Daniel, his best friend since childhood."

I really needed this you have no idea

Personally I always thought Horace held a torch for Will but

That’s too many kids, but each one is so cute and different I love it. Idk like 3 kids is too many kids in my opinion but hey yknow this was back in the day.

Rebel daughters and supportive brothers(can we say that Daniel considers Edward a brother almost? despite not being technically related) Also whenever Daniel says he considers Edward to be a brother it hurts Edward a little and everyone knows why

But I love how beautifully written this is. Thank you!!

Man, I got HUGE headcanons for the Treaty family, yo. HUGE. I had such high hopes and then they were dashed but we're not talking about that I WILL DROWN THEM IN HEADCANONS ABOUT ALL THE CHILDREN AND THE FRIENDSHIPS AND THE BROTHERLY LOVE AND SISTERLY LOVE AND MAMA/DAUGHTER-MAMA/SON-PAPA/DAUGHTER-PAPA/SON LOVE, LET ME TELL YOU ALL MY HEADCANONS.

TELL ME ALL OF THEM

But first

Halt babysitting the kids while Will and Alyss are on missions

The more I think about it, the more I think Will would be like Merida's dad with his own kids. When they're little, they're all "CAN I SHOOT AN ARROW, PAPA, PLEASE??" and he's all "What, no, not with that, the draw weight's way too heavy, USE THIS ONE" and Alyss is holding her head in her hands because Will and her children are out in the forest, shooting arrows and getting absolutely filthy, they're going to need a bath AGAIN, Will. THEY JUST HAD ONE YESTERDAY AND NOW THEY NEED ANOTHER.

CUUUUUUTE

i didn’t realize how much i actually talk to my horse when i ride

i’m a true ranger

deimos-maxim:

so what if apprentice Gilan saw Halt cutting his hair with a saxe knife and tried to copy him

Halt and Crowley try to insist that Will's nightmares are trauma; he was tortured after all. He snaps back that he knows the difference, he's had nightmares since Skandia.

I didn’t need feelings nope
