I always get asked this question and I never really have a satisfactory answer. I don’t know what it feels like to be a sex symbol. And I woke up in the morning and saw the same face, you know what I mean? It doesn’t really.. um.. but I will say this and I’ve said this in the press before, man, you know…Black men, we’re never called sexy, you know what I mean? We’re not called sexy. We’re called athletic, and intense. We’re called-described as you know, being the strong type, the silent type, but you’re never really described as the sexy [type]. Well, I’m saying in general – there’s a real generalization to what I’m saying, but in general the word sexy doesn’t apply to black men in particular. Or in a script, they don’t say Sexy. They say a muscular black man, an intense black guy. Or good-looking, but they won’t say sexy.

I swear this guy will change the world.

That is not an understatement in the slightest.

Practice makes perfect.

And Neal Caffrey takes perfect to new extremes.

open for any and all Hansencest prompts

With the Hansencest Advent Calendar coming up (oh man, oh man, how exciting is that gonna be), I realized my stock of Hansencest prompts on hand is little to none.

Feel free to request any combination of the Hansens (Herc/Chuck, Herc/Scott, Scott/Chuck, Herc/Scott/Chuck) + choice of prompt (canon compliant, AU, kinkmeme, go wild, I like to think I’d be up for it).

Either prompt below, in my ask (open to anon), or through fanmail. Don’t be shy, hit me up?




Just imagine the Avengers going to Ikea, and Thor is the only one who can pronounce the name of anything. 

This is disproportionately hilarious to me.
