I’m currently trying not think that since Francis only married her for her money, he may had treated her awfully.

Ghosts 1x01, “Who Do You Think You Are?”
Hes just so mecore 😕
What if every male Ghost has already been in bed with the Captain?
And they just don’t know that the others have, too? And that’s why they all make that face when the Captain is about to come out.
Tw: outing, toxic relationship mention, after affects of toxic relationship (?), alcoholism mention, physical abuse implications.

also I tagged every. single. one. of you! (it took like 20 minutes)
Don't look at him, Alastair told himself. Just look straight ahead. Yes, keep going. Breathe.
"Al- Mr Carstairs!" Called out a voice.
Alastair rolled his eyes before turning around.
What did Charles want this time?
"What?" He snapped, before looking around to check if there were any curious onlookers.
The two of them were alone outside the London institute, everyone else was on the inside attending what Alastair was certain to be the twentieth party they held that year.
"My mother told me something about you. I didn't believe what she said at first, I thought she was joking-" answered Charles. He burst out laughing before he could finish his sentence.
"She wasn't joking. It's true" confirmed Alastair, much to Charles' horror.
"She said that you expressed interest in running for the position of Counsul!" Said Charles, raking his hands through his hair.
"I am of age and I have been studying for it for a while now" shrugged Alastair.
"But- you can't just do that! You know how much I've wanted it! You're just trying to take the one thing I've ever wanted from me out of spite!". Charles' face almost turned to the colour of his hair.
"I'm not taking it away from you" said Alastair, his tone even although his hands had began to shake from being in such proximity to Charles. "I'm only competing for the same position. It's more likely that you'll win anyway, you know you have an advantage over me". He didn’t use the word ‘nepotism’ only because he didn’t want to escalate things further.
Charles opened his mouth to speak but closed it again because he believed him. "And I'm not doing it out of spite. I'm doing it because I have wanted to do it for quite some time. I've wanted it even before we met, actually"
Charles let out a frustrated noise. Closing his hands into fists, he stepped closer to Alastair. As if out of reflex, Alastair shuddered and took two steps away from him.
All of a sudden, witchlight from inside the institute spilled on the ground between the two boys' shoes.
The door had opened, and Matthew fairchild stood in the doorway, looking thoroughly bored.
"Mother sent me here to check up on you two. Charles, we could hear your noise from inside the room. Stop fighting and come back inside or take your fight elsewhere. Although, mother probably would prefer it if you did the former"
Charles instantly regained his composure, but Alastair caught Matthew noticing his brother's distressed expression.
"Is something wrong?" asked Matthew, no longer bored. His eyes were on Charles, and didn't take them away to look at Alastair.
"It's none of your business" snapped Alastair. The last thing he wanted at that moment was to draw attention to himself.
Matthew's eyes met his. "If it involves you, then I don't see why I shouldn't be involved as well"
"Matthew, Listen to Mr Carstairs" said Charles.
Matthew set his jaw. "No. What do you have to say to him that you cannot say to your own brother?"
"It's about politics, it'll bore you" said Alastair, hoping he could reason with the younger Fairchild.
"Don't worry, it won't"
Charles stepped up. "Fine. Mr Carstairs and I were having a disagreement because he is running for Counsul. He knows-"
Charles stopped talking immediately, and looked at Alastair with a cruel expression on his face. It felt oddly familiar.
Charles stepped closer to Alastair and spoke in a low voice so that his brother couldn't hear him. "Tell my mother that you've lost interest in being Counsul or I'll tell my brother right now. About us. And he is very fond of gossiping"
Alastair tried to keep a level head. "But that would mean that word about you would get out as well”
Charles laughed without humour. “Do you think that will matter to me after losing the one thing that I care about? Alastair, please try to look at this from my perspective”
Alastair softened. “I- Charles, I think we both know know for a fact that you will be the one who will be elected Counsul. I just-" he broke off, not finding the right words.
"What is it that that two two of you are discussing so intently? I'm still waiting, you know" said Matthew, stepping closer to the two of them.
"it's nothing" dismissed Alastair, who decided to head back inside the institute as it was less likely for Charles to pursue him when there where others nearby. He didn't turn back to look at Charles as he entered.
“Alastair and I once had an understanding” Charles blurted out.
Alastair whipped his head back and looked at Charles with widened eyes and then at Matthew. Why did it suddenly became so hard for him to breathe?
Alastair didn’t know how he expected him to react, but what he knew that the way he actually reacted wasn’t it.
Matthew threw his head back and burst out laughing. Was he drunk? From his years of taking care of his father, Alastair was sure that Matthew was sober. Maybe he had lost his mind.
“I’m sorry,” said Matthew, trying to recover from his laughing spell. “but that’s just absurd. How did-” he broke off once again and resumed his laughter.
Charles let out an exasperated sigh. “It began around two years ago. A year later the two of us spent some time together in Paris during his travel year”
Matthew’s smile faded upon noticing the look on Alastair’s face. “You’re being serious”
“But it doesn’t make sense. Wasn’t he seventeen two years ago? And you twenty-three?” he continued. He looked at Alastair and added, “did the two of you ever-”, he shook his head, disgusted. “I don’t want to know. But Charles, he is six years younger than you! And he was not an adult yet!”
Heat crept up Alastair’s face. “I don’t require you to stand up for me” he said to Matthew. “I can do that myself just fine. I’ve been doing it for quite a while”
He turned to Charles and glowered. “Every time I think you have an ounce of decency left in you, I am proven wrong. You want to know what I was thinking when you told your brother about us?”
Charles opened his mouth to speak, but was interrupted by Alastair.
“That wasn’t an invitation for you to speak. At first, I was terrified. Terrified of what would happen when people heard about it. Then, I was relieved, because that was the only way in which you could have power over me and now there that it’s out, you have no hold on me. You’re a spineless, pathetic creature, you know that? Now that you’ve told your brother about us, I can say things like this, which I have been saying behind your back, to your face”
From the corner of his eye, he could see a grin slowly spreading across Matthew’s face. He ignored it and went on.
“Lastly, I was angry. Not at you, but at myself. I don’t know what mental state I was in to fall for you. Back then, I thought that was how love was supposed to make you feel. Now that I have someone else who actually loves me as much as I love him, I realise how wrong I was”
Charles’ left eye twitched a little as he clenched his jaw shut. His hands were fisted inside his coat.
“I am going to stand for Counsul” said Alastair, “and I am going to win. Do what you must to prevent it”
With that, he headed out the gate, after having ultimately decided to walk to his house instead of going back to the party. He kept his head high and didn’t bother looking back at Charles or Matthew.
He didn’t turn around even after hearing the sound of footsteps behind him, he was beyond caring about anything at that point. He held up a single finger, it should’ve been enough to shoo Charles away.
“I didn’t expect you to be familiar with the rude gestures of the Americans” remarked Matthew. “I thought you to be too proper for it”
“You’re the one coming from a prestigious family” returned Alastair, relieved to find Matthew behind him instead of his brother.
“Listen,” said Matthew, his expression solemn, “I don’t know- this is a bit hard for me to say, but I was hoping we could put our past in the Academy behind us”
“I did move past it, you’re the one who kept holding on to it”
Matthew looked like he had something important to say, but instead just laughed. “This doesn’t mean I am going to start being polite to you all of a sudden. It’s just- people like us need to look out for each other. And I know this is none of my business, I’m only asking because I’m curious and feel the need to protect others like us, so would you mind telling me who it is that you are seeing now? I think I might know him, I know a lot of-”
“Thank you” said Alastair, “and as for the second bit; It’s none of your business”. He tried to hide his smile and fought the urge to add ‘and you do know him’
no one: me doing research for this fic: when was flipping the bird invented?

How on Earth did I forget to post these on here?!?!
The Gang so far, feat the most recent creation = Julian’s legs
started painting this and i absolutely hated it and i genuinely can’t be bothered so have sketch 🤝
Trying to imagine Thomas and the Captain kissing and all I see is two stranded cod opening and closing their mouths at each other with their last breaths as they stare into each others’ dying eyes.
I'm really glad they had that Kitty-centric episode because, although she definitely has her moments and is a very kind person, for the most part i find her quite annoying. Or at least in the first two seasons. But with her episode we get more insight into her past and just in general, more insight on to why she is the way she is. Plus that episode where the ghosts solve some identity theft mystery and Cap is all encouraging and shit is just so sweet.
BUT ANYWAYS, again, i mostly find her annoying and i don't like that i find her annoying because i know there's more to her just like how Robin's not actually stupid at all (although i don't find Robin annoying.) But her episode just made me feel so bad for her for not being able to fully accept how shitty her family was and the way she's rearranged her memories and shit just AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
Thomas: I would die for you.
Y/N: I would die for you too.
Thomas, suddenly emotional: Please don’t.
Julian, from across the room: You’re both already dead.
GHOSTS ➣ the ghosts + clubs!
AO3 has me in a CapThorne spiral and I’m sorry I didn’t ship it sooner😭
Any excuse for Ben and Mat to be close tbh😂
hear me out ok
Thomas x Humphrey
Thank you for coming to my Dead Talk
I find it interesting that on the one hand Thomas mentions twice that you stay how you die but on the other he tells Alison in 1x06, "We can change!"
I can't quite put my finger on why this feels significant to me - maybe because most of the time Thomas appears to be rather set in his ways, yet in that moment he is clearly willing to adapt to convince Alison to stay.
