DON'T FUCK WITH THE SULLIVANS
you probably know one of them. hell, you may have shared a jail cell with one of them. but you’ve definitely heard of them.
every neighborhood has that one house you cross the street to avoid. the one you mom never let you go play at and that had a cruiser parked in front of it so often you actually thought the cops lived there when you were younger. that’s the sullivan house.
usually drunk or drugged out of their minds, liam and maggie sullivan still seemed to possess the wherewithal to be good irish catholics and pop out a few kids to bestow upon the world. six of them in fact. maggie took off 18 months after the last one was born and with her gone liam turned to his first love: jameson. connor, the oldest, became both mom and dad to the kids at sixteen and through seemingly sheer force of will managed to keep his siblings fed, clothed, in school and with a roof over their heads. sure, their methods of procuring rent money aren’t always the cleanest, and their records have put the siblings with powers on division’s radar. but they get by, they make do. and no one can deny that they wouldn’t do anything for each other. anything.
you don’t fuck with the sullivans.
[basically if you’ve seen shameless (the american version) they’re the gallaghers and they’re awesome. not all the siblings have powers, but the ones who do usually have one of the family powers: readers, stitches or changers. once and a while something new pops up. they all live together in the same house, though connor has been threatening to move out since the youngest one hit puberty. they’re fiercely loyal to each other and family always comes first. just about all of them have a record but connor’s just happy no one ended up a serial killer on his watch. yet.]

♢ five things you should know about connor sullivan
- he almost never drinks coffee. not because he doesn’t like the taste but because it makes him way too jittery and unable to focus. while he usually has a good handle on his power that all goes out the window the moment he has any caffeine. the kids used to try and get him to drink it without him noticing whenever they wanted to get away with anything.
- he discovered his power when he was ten after hearing his father thinking about how he wanted to screw his mother. because no sullivan can escape childhood without becoming completely fucked up. he has never, ever told anyone.
- the only people he can get a feeling for intentions and vibes from are his siblings. he’s tried reading the general public in the same way but it never seems to work. he finally figured out that it works on his siblings because he’s so closely attuned to them anyway. that doesn’t mean he can do much to prevent those intentions, but it at least keeps the younger ones under better control.
- he has over twenty tattoos, collected over the last fifteen years of his life. the first one was a shamrock over his heart at the ripe old age of sixteen. it was completely illegal and he’s lucky it didn’t turn gangrenous, but it’s still his favorite. his ocean-themed sleeve comes in a close second.
- he can’t go a single day without surfing. it’s the first thing he does every day before work and it’s the only way he knows how to completely quiet his head. he spent more time at zuma beach than he did at home growing up, and it’s still his favorite spot in all of southern california. if he’s not where you expect him to be you can usually find him there.
I don’t see you for a year and you turn into a freaking runway model?

♡ five things you should know about genevieve arnaud
- O N E she hates when people can’t pronounce her name with the correct french pronunciation. most people think she’s being over sensitive and nit-picky, but it literally makes the hairs on the back of her neck stand up. it’s partially the reason she started going by genny. that and she couldn’t bear to hear her name spoken by anyone but her grandmother after she died.
- T W O everyone expected her to go into fashion but genny couldn’t think of anything she’d be worse at. she can put an outfit together, no problem, but designing her own clothes required a level of imagination she’s not entirely sure she has. (besides the fact she never really got past the stick figures phase in art class.)
- T H R E E she’s a complete hopeless romantic. her bookshelves are filled with trashy romance novels and she loves them unapologetically. the collection has been made fun of more than once, but genny simply loves the idea of being swept off her feet by someone who appreciates her and cares for her. all of her relationships so far have been great disappointments.
- F O U R growing up her grandmother spoke only french, despite requests from genny’s parents. genny fell in love with the language at an early age, telling her mother it sounded ‘beautiful’ and ‘romantical.’ she was fluent by age ten and though she rarely speaks it now she still falls into when she’s upset or very excited. some of her words still have a slight french pronunciation to them, but her accent is almost completely gone.
- F I V E she absolutely abhors coffee, finding it far too bitter no matter how much sugar and cream she adds. however, she does enjoy the smell of it brewing, as it reminds her of mornings spent with her father in his home office when she was little. she usually orders tea at starbucks: earl grey with enough milk to make it look like melted chocolate.
