The REAL reason England has no troops behind him in the revolutionary war scene is that he came to talk to Alfred alone to discuss peaceful ways to deal with this. However Alfred thinking that is was a trap brought a few of his men anyway even though Britain did not. My evidence?
Look at England’s face, he looks confused and hurt. If he intended to fight, even if it was alone he wouldn’t look so confused or hurt.
The “courtesy call.” Let me talk about this too. Ok, so I have watched this twice now, but I don’t think Hannibal would ever make one of these again. I think he wanted Hobbes to lose it. Wanted him wild and desperate. And most of all he wanted Hobbes’ daughter. I think Hannibal had planned it all out. He wanted William to be the first in, that’s why he sat in the car longer. He wanted William to kill Hobbes, so he would continue to need him. And then he goes in and there is Abigail. William is struggling to save her and to Hannibal it’s HIS golden ticket. His ticket to sew himself into William’s life permanently. So that no matter what they will have that connection. And he helps him. He helps William put pressure on the cut, and when the ambulance comes Hannibal goes with them. He goes with his golden ticket and waited. Waited for William to come, because he knew he would. Knew he had to. But as he is sitting there he reaches out to Abigail and holds her hand. Holds her hand because she’s his now. No one else can have her, not now, she’s his ticket to William and he doesn’t trust himself not to lose her, and then he dozes and creates quite by accident the only image that would connect William to him, because if Hannibal had been alert and aware William wouldn’t have begun to trust him I don’t think. I think it was the fact that William got to witness Hannibal vulnerable and asleep holding Abigails hand in semblance of comfort that truly began their connection and made all of Hannibal’s ideas and plans to begin.

Troll Gender and Reproduction Headcanon
Trolls use ‘he’ and ‘she’ pronouns, but don’t filter out either as options for concupiscent Quadrants. This has lead a large portion of the fandom to believe that Troll anatomy on both ‘males’ and ‘females’ us identical. This can be further supported by looking at the reproductive cycle as a whole; there is a Mother Grub that births all the members of the species using material from the older members. If the Trolls are anything like insects, which they certainly seem to be, citing their development from larvae in to adults, this would imply that every member of the Troll race is the counterpart, from a reproductive standpoint, to the Mother Grub. Indicating that, like all members of an ant colony or a bee hive, every individual is sexually ‘male’***, while the queen is sexually ‘female’.
But wait, then why does a Troll need to be with another Troll to supply Genetic Material to the Mother Grub? When the Drone comes to their door, couldn’t they just release in to a pail and give them that? After all, you said Trolls were the counterpart for the Mother Grub- doesn’t that mean that they supply the fertilizing material for the eggs she must produce?
Yes, but they are only a part of the whole equation. For diversity in the species, the material from two Trolls is combined- this results in many more possibilities than if material from only one was used per egg. It also takes away any need for the Mother Grub to supply any distinguishing portion of the genes for the Troll-To-Be, merely a place for it to happen.
***Trolls themselves are agender, as the Genetic Material they supply is incapable of fertilizing an egg on its own:
When Genetic Material comes out of one Troll, it is in a state where it is prepped to bond with that of another Troll. Once that happens, the combined result, chemically different than its two halves, is now considered proper Filial Pail material and now has the ability to fertilize an egg. It is only in this state it is delivered to the Mother Grub.
It is then handled by the drones who, like worker bees, are born of the unfertilized eggs the Mother Grub produces. Fertilization, changes the development so drastically that the being inside would grow in to a Troll, as opposed to the very obviously dissimilar Drone. The Imperial Drones, as well as the Carpenter Droids, are considered adult Trolls, as pointed out in the Narration as we are introduced to Karkat’s Lusus. They were not, however, included under the Condesce’s ban of adult Troll’s from Alternia, as they are of a much different nature than those born of fertilized eggs.
The contents of the pail are thrown in to the incestuous slurry, where they act much like sperm do in our reproduction: the more potent the relationship of the two Trolls who supplied the original material, the better the combined result and the more likely it is to reach an egg within the Mother Grub. The combinations, having been formed of an already mixed pairing of pre-pail substances, are no longer able to combine with any other material and stays together in a similar fashion to liquid magnesium.
Where as sperm in effect swim to reach the egg, competing with each other for one prize, the Mother Grub lays hundreds of thousands of eggs at a time, and would have many opportunities for the material to reach one. This is to do with the solidity of the bond between the material supplied- just as certain chemicals mix better with some than others, particular Trolls are predisposed, genetically, to have more potent connections. This makes the bond more stable, allowing it to fertilize an egg properly. The bonds that do not hold up well, but still manage to fertilize an egg that results in a grub- the results would be culled. Any materials unable to fertilize any eggs due to a poor bond are simply useless and just add to the slurry.
The connection between two Trolls is dictated by their genetics, as can be supported by the parallels in the relationships between the Troll’s Ancestors and Trolls themselves, particularly that Mindfang and Dualscar had a fairly sunstantial Kismesissitude going, as did Vriska and Eridan. But of course the relationships are not exactly the same, because though they share a very similar genetic code to their ancestors, it is not exactly the same. This can be seen drastically in Nepeta’s Redcrush on Karkat along with the ‘Quadrant-Ascending’ relationship between the Signless and the Disciple.
Now, we know that Kanaya’s Lusus would have been a Mother Grub had she not given up the job to raise her, so we have some extra information to work with. Kanaya’s Lusus is definitely referred to using ‘she’ pronouns, which, considering her would-be title, is very appropriate. It’s important to note that Kanaya is referred to in the same way.
The fauna of Alternia, who, should they select a recently pupated Troll from the Brooding Caverns, would become Lusii, do not have a queen bee arrangement for their reproduction. Their existence on Jake’s island is support of that. This leaves them with our traditional means of reproduction; a male impregnating a female, who, after a gestation period, gives birth to the direct result of the two parent’s genes combining.
This would, of course, require one of the parents to be female and the other to be male. Thus, when a member of the Alternian fauna decides to become a Lusus, they are one or the other. They select a Troll to raise that matches their own blood colour- which can easily exist without a third party- and that smells appropriate to them.
The Troll then grows up under the care of their Lusus and though they don’t have any features differentiating them from their fellow Trolls, their Lusus is distinctively male or female, so that is what Trolls identify with; the gender of their Lusus.
[As a side note, I find it likely that the Dolorosa encouraged the Signless to identify as male so that people would not guess that she had raised him herself, unless he specifically told them otherwise.]
Serenity: They did indeed have ‘eternal’ forms, but there were different from the current look. The picture you saw of them was their first form, and they did reach their last form..

Admin: Outer Senshi will come later because I have no nice art for them. XD
I have a headcannon where, when Percy and Annabeth first go back to Camp Half-Blood after Tartarus, all of their friends crowd around them, trying to give them hugs, and Annabeth, bossy as ever, yells, “GODS, CAN YOU ALL FORM A LINE?” and Percy tries not to laugh. And everybody knows that, yes, Percy and Annabeth are going to be fine.
this is such a run on sentence

Danny/Vlad Relationship Study: Bitter Reunions
Let’s start at the beginning shall we? Vlad’s first episode in the series is Bitter Reunions and ranks as a favorite for many for some very good reasons. We’re going to go through it bit by bit and explore the relationship as it develops. I will try to keep the shipping to a minimum… but no promises.
Part 1 – The Fenton Family
The scene opens with Danny just on the edge of missing his curfew, his dialogue makes it clear this is not the first time and if he misses it again there will be more serious consequences. Predictably right at that moment some ghosts arrive that Danny is honor bound to fight off… I’m not going to recite the plot to you so let’s just skip to this part.
Here are the lines just before this happens.
Maddie: There’s nothing you’re going through that your father and I didn’t when we were your age.
Danny: I beg to differ.
Besides leaving an opening for jazz to suggest they go to the university reunion this scene is very important because it reminds the viewer that Danny’s parents will never understand him. They can’t understand him because he’s not a human anymore and he has more to deal with that just a social life and homework now… a whole lot more.
But there is someone who can understand, you just haven’t met him yet dear Danny.
