It's the same old shit, so it's how you deal with it. It's the glove that fits that you wear. So when the wind blows strong, I put a few more layers on, and I tell myself I don't care.
☠: Drinking/Drunk Headcanon
Barty’s never indulged in alcohol, not even tiny sips of champagne at celebratory events. The thought of doing so is distasteful to him. Being drunk just seems to undignified, and really, what’s the point? To have fun, to loosen up? Barty sees no reason to do either of those things, and if he did, he wouldn’t turn to drink in order to do them. Alcohol, like any drug, distorts the mind, and he prides himself on keeping a clear head.
If Barty did ever drink, he would have to be persuaded to do so. The most likely arguments to win him over would be that drinking would help him relax, and relaxing would prevent him from snapping and doing something he’d regret. It probably would do him good to have a glass of wine or two. I’m not sure what exactly he’d drink. Probably not beer, probably something snobbish/stereotypically high-brow. The only way he’s ever going to get really, really drunk is if someone persuades him to.
Were he to get drunk, I imagine he’d be the rambling kind of drinker, going off on tangents about random things until someone shuts him up. Something like Aziraphale and Crowley’s discussion of infinity in Good Omens, or Ford’s attempt to explain the Restaurant at the End of the World in the second Hitchhiker’s Guide book. He wouldn’t start dancing on tables or anything. He’d be more likely to smile, though, and probably even laugh, something he’s not prone to doing sober - he tends to snicker or snort derisively.

Several years ago Kelsey left and reentered Roadmaps 1.0. In returning she wrote (IC) “Oh, look. Blood stains and burn marks. It’s as though we never said goodbye." This time my pleasure to invite you to return once more—though the blood stains and burn marks may need adapting for Tumblr. Please Pack Your Bags and send in a link to your Barty Crouch Jr.’s Tumblr within the next 24 hours.

Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives -choice, not chance, determines your destiny.
The brilliant, if somehow oft ignored, son of Bartemius Crouch Sr—Barty Crouch Jr managed to get twelve OWLS before he left Hogwarts and then landed a surprisingly impressive job at the ministry by the time he reached twenty. Some might say his father helped him with the latter but they would be wrong. Bartemius left employment in his sons hands and Barty rose to the occasion.
Unfortunately, he also rose to the occasion years before—taking the Dark Mark under his father’s nose while still in his final years at Hogwarts. The fact Barty is a Death Eater is unknown to the wider population and, despite putting in his notice just before leaving with the rest to search for the Horcrux he would like to keep it that way.
This choice to wish to remain unknown is not to be mistaken for lack of loyalty. Instead, he colors it as the ultimate loyalty—when Voldemort returns he will be ready to retake his post and help with the inevitable Ministry take over.
Bellatrix LestrangeAll men by nature desire knowledge.
Perhaps it started through Barty’s friendship with Regulus Black—it’s hard to say for sure now. But Bellatrix and Barty get along strangely well. Bellatrix thinks Barty is a great tool to have under hand—and while Barty may chafe from the idea of being a ‘tool’ (for he is bound to better things) he is fond of Bellatrix all the same. Particularly what he thinks she can teach him.
Regulus BlackIt is not always the same thing to be a good man and a good citizen.
They were friends—or Barty thought they were friends. Maybe it was just a long game to Regulus Black—he isn’t sure—but for a whlie they were some of the youngest Death Eaters and therefore spent a lot of time together. Even before that, though, they managed to chat at the Hogwarts Library more than once. At the end of the day its hard to say who was using whom—or if either was using the other at all.
Alice and Frank LongbottomPatience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.
They aren’t even in the same department of the Ministry but one or the other of them always seemed to be around when Barty wanted anything but. The Longbottom chap doesn’t seem to have a clue, unlike the girl, but Barty would like nothing better than to hex them into unconsciousness anyway.
