An AU Merrill inspired by the wonderful penthesilea1623 version from her story A Happy Accident.
About the contents in her bag:
The coin purse was a gift from Isabela
she has an ancient cell phone
moleskine filled with thoughts, sewing ideas, etc
those strawberry candies
and a little bag of rocks and sea glass she collected throughout the years. In this story she’s a history/archaeology major.
Also, that jacket, unfortunately, is completely made up from my head so I can supply a reference for that.
Carver doesn’t even begin to understand the clothes Merrill wears.
Not that he pretends to know anything about fashion. He used to complain about the things his sister Annie wore, scrounged from flea makets and vintage stores, used to pretend he didn’t know her when she occasionally turned up at games, couldn’t understand why she couldn’t dress like the all the other girls he knew, the popular girls, the cheerleaders and such, didn’t understand why she didn’t even try to fit in.
Merrill’s clothes make Annie’s seem downright conservative by comparison.
But since Merrill looks more adorable every time he sees her, (even when she shows up at his games, cheering enthusiastically at all the wrong moments, wearing huge scarves and strange hats, always with a large cup of steaming hot tea that she wraps her hands around to keep them warm) he decides he might kind of like the things she wears.
Maybe being different is okay.

I may just have used the word ‘turgid’ in a smut scene I’m writing.
I’ve deleted it and I apologize.
Stop judging me.

Was googling Vespa pictures for reasons, and came across this gem.
Judah Ben-Hur and Messala, two boys out for a ride.
Disney movies in order of historical setting
(Excludes most of the package films. Some films, eg The Lion King, are impossible to pin down exactly and some, like Aladdin and Treasure Planet, are anachronistic, so these are estimations. A few have been split into 2 if there is more than one time period in the movie, and sequels have been put together.)
I thought I was going to work on Shenga smut.
And then I started thinking about naming my nameless Shepard.
And then I got stuck on the idea of her having parents who were total dorks and named her something terrible like, “Galadriel” or oh god they were trash dorks and they named her ”Renesmee.”
And then I laughed until I snorted while feanorinleatherpants texted me encouragement like, “And anyone who uses her actual name gets cut.”
And I started thinking about the horrors of living in the late 22nd century when the name Renesmee is almost just a name, but there’s still sort of a stigma about it. Like kids get told, “Man, don’t date girls named Renesmee. They always have crazy families.”
And that’s how thinking about names that Stephanie Meyer made up derailed my midnight smut writing.
Just one more thing Twilight has ruined for everyone.
What if Kaidan knows about it because his mother was a fan of the books (like Stephanie Meyers is the Louisa May Alcott of her day and they’re considered classics) so he figures it out?
Isabella was one of the names we considered for little miss pen because I always liked it, but some sort of spidey sense told me it was going to get popular, so we nixed it. I had no idea that the Twilight books would come out shortly after that and the name would shoot to the top three.
Bullet dodged for little miss pen.
Though the idea of naming a daughter Isabela after the Dragon Age character tickles me to no end.
There is justice in the world.
