Zepheera for 32, 37 and 12; Stan Baker for 5, 28 and 38

From this list of not-so-nice OC Questions. Still taking these if you’re curious about my OC’s deep dark secrets

Zepheera [x] [x]

12. Have they ever done something illegal? What was it? 

Seeing as she’s a borrower, human rules and laws don’t really apply to her. If they did, she’d be six feet deep in minor counts of theft.

32. Do they have a bad relationship with their parents?

Yes. She and her mother had a terrible relationship.

37. Have they ever had their freedom taken away?

She’s been trapped at least a couple of times in her life, and in one AU she was caged and experimented on. No fun.

Stan Baker [x]

5. List 3 fears; one “surface level” fear, one “repressed” fear, and one “deep dark” fear.

Here we go.

Surface level: Not in a jump-on-a-chair-in-fright way, but he doesn’t much care for spiders. Too many legs and eyeballs.

Repressed: he fears bringing danger to his loved ones. Nate teases him about being paranoid, but it’s derived from the real risks that come with Stan’s job. He tries to keep it under control, but he takes any precaution he sees necessary to protect Nathan, even wearing his engagement ring on a chain so bad guys don’t notice it and realize he has a loved one to exploit.

Deep dark: In a similar vein, Stan is terrified of letting people down and failing to protect them. For the most part, his confidence in his abilities keeps him from worrying about this too often, but he would fall into a dark place if this fear was ever realized.

28. Is there a certain type of person that disgusts them?

People who show complete disregard for other people’s lives disgust him.

38. Have they ever been imprisoned?

Human Stan has never been to prison or imprisoned. The same cannot be said about borrower Stan.

36 Orrick & 44 Stan

From this list of not-so-nice OC Questions. I’m still taking these if you’re curious about my OC’s deep dark secrets!

Orrick [x] [x]

36. Are they in control of their emotions, or are their emotions in control of them?

He’s in control of his emotions. He’s a very down-to-earth person, and is very open with his feelings, but he is also in a good mental place and his emotions hardly ever get the better of him.

Stan Baker [x]

44. What’s one thing they wish they could do more often, but can’t?

Stan would love a vacation. As much as he loves his work, it’s a near-constant cycle of near-death experiences. If he could take a few weeks off and go abroad with Nathan, they would have the time of their lives. Backpacking in Peru, hitting up one of the Disney parks, maybe even visit Hobbiton in New Zealand. Some time to relax is hardly ever an option for him, alas.

Would it be rude to AU headcanon Stan/Dean as a ship?? hides because I feel bad bc Nathan is a sweetie

I don’t think it’s rude at all! Headcanons are headcanons for a reason. @nightmares06 writes Dean as straight and Stan is in a relationship by the time they meet in Brothers Consulted, so they won’t end up a couple at all in our stories, but it’s perfectly fine to think up your own versions of the story as long as you don’t demand we make it canon.

I can’t wait to write about Stan and Nathan, though. Nate’s just the right amount of chill to go along with whatever shenanigans his secret agent brings home.

OC Question meme

From this list of uncommon OC questions.

1. What is the maximum amount of time your character can sit still with nothing to do?

I give him three days, tops, and that’s generous. He’s a very action-oriented person, always needs to busy himself somehow. Poor Nathan would have a very anxious Stan bugging him for something to do, he’s fallen down too many YouTube rabbit holes and is going a little nuts.

4. How easy is it to earn their trust?

Stan’s optimistic and likes to hope for the best in people, but he’s also good at reading them. The second he senses ill intent in someone, it’ll take a lot of proof to win trust back.

11. How do they cope with confusion? (seek clarification, pretend they understand, etc.)

Stan is not ashamed to ask questions when he doesn’t understand something. Only if a situation were short on time would he skip the crash course and just roll with what he knows and sees.

12. How do they deal with an itch found in a place they can’t quite reach?

Begs Nate to scratch it or finds anything remotely resembling a backscratcher.

18. What embarrasses them?

His own shortcomings, mostly. He’s highly critical of himself, but he keeps a lot of that inside. When he does make a mistake, he’ll go through self-flagellation before reverting to humor and eventually moving on with his life. Depends on the mistake.

Of course, Nathan can always find a way to make him turn bright red.

A. Why are you excited about this character?

Of the characters I’ve built over the years I’ve been writing, Stan is the only one that has taken me completely by surprise. I didn’t plan him as more than a passing character, yet he emerged. I continue to learn about him as I go, whereas with my other characters I carefully plan out their backstories beforehand. It’s an interesting experience, to be sure, and I can’t wait to see where he takes me.


Thanks again to @nightmares06 for asking and waiting patiently for my answer!

@borrowedtimeandspace – (Assuming we’re talking about Watson)

Whether he was cursed as a child or born smol,

John would make the best of the hand he’s dealt. His size wouldn’t stop him

from learning how to help others his size, becoming as close to a doctor as he

can manage to be without training, and generally being a little badass. And he certainly wouldn’t take kindly to any giants who mess with those he loves.

Maybe I’m biased because of The Hobbit,

but I imagine borrower John wielding a sharpened half-scissor broken off of a

swiss army knife x3

Seriously though, this was a really sweet message to get. Hugs all around!

When Stan started out, he was never meant to be much of a well-rounded character. But as he and Dean bounced off each other, he just…became. Then later on I added in details for Sherlock to notice from him, and I discovered so much about him. Including the fact that he happened to be engaged to a man, and owned a German Shepherd. Honestly, he wasn’t exactly predetermined to be any kind of role model or example of representation, but I can’t agree more that representation is needed. 

Being gay certainly isn’t the basis of Stan’s character, but it’s not going to be ignored either.

I’m glad anything we do makes anyone feel better about themselves. You go, boo. Hope you enjoy what he have planned for my fiery bean and the Brothers Consulted crew!

Morning Tea

Sam || Stuck

AU: Brothers Consulted

Timeline: Before the first story, after the brothers move into 221B Baker Street


It was just another supply run.

There was no reason for either brother to think this morning would be any different from any other.

It was becoming their regular routine; wake up early, grab some food from the cabinets, keep an eye on Sherlock and John while they were up and about. Midafternoon to evening was a good time to catch some sleep with the humans at their most active, and during the night the brothers would pick through the main room of the flat, reading up on the materials Sherlock scattered about his latest cases and grabbing extra supplies for the supply room they were building across the fireplace from their home.

It had only been a week since officially moving in, but so far the schedule was holding out. There were a few hiccups along the way while learning and they had to have chosen the most erratic humans around, but the brothers remained hidden against all odds.

“Anythin?’ “ Dean hissed at Sam as he hesitantly pushed at the entrance into the cupboard.

Sam paused, his eyes unfocused as he concentrated on the strange knack he had. Without that ability, moving into this particular flat would be ill-advised. Between the two of them and their unusual abilities, it became worth the risk.

“Nothing,” Sam confirmed, and Dean climbed into the cupboard to begin their raid.
