Photos from the Rodney Shop! ^^ Everything was so cute and I managed to get a drawing as well. :D Though sadly I think some of the UmJammer Lammy plushies sold by the time I came. (I really like the Dunkin’ Donuts tin but it was super expensive…)

Soon I’ll post some of the stuff I bought as well, I managed to find some really nice stuff :3

Tragedy of Ignis

I feel like I already have a post like that. Well I’ll have two then. But you know what’s really sad? Ignis is a function character. It’s not me shitting on the story, there are actual real life people who live like that, molding all their lives around someone else. Typical thing for mothers, maybe that’s one of the reasons why fandom thinks about him as a mom-friend despite the fact that he is adventurous pun master dork. But really all his life since the early childhood was dedicated sorely to Noctis. There are Gladio and Luna who are quite literally live for Noctis to fulfill his role but still, Luna has her oracle shebang, Gladio expresses characteristics that has nothing to do to Noctis: he loves his sister, likes reading, hiking, getting stronger, even those cup noodles. 

Every habit or quality Ignis exhibits is there for Noctis. He may enjoy cooking but he got into it to lift the prince’s spirits after the Tenebrae attack. His knowledge, his manners, his skills at fight all were developed to guide a young king to his fullest potential. And not once he shows even a trace of resentment toward Noct, even having every right, even after this quest leaves him fucking blind. The depth of his devotion and selflessness is truly mind-boggling. 

And the saddest part? It’s all for nothing. He dedicated every second of his life to make Noctis a perfect ruler he never meant to be. 

King Regis never pressed his son to be a great leader because he won’t be, it was good enough if he lived happily for those short years he had. But Ignis didn’t get the memo so he kept on trying.  

I mean even the fact that each bro gets an episode to dive into their character, lives and motivations exclude Ignis. Because “his” episode is still emotionally Noct’s story of coming to terms with his father’s mortality and his own role as an heir.

Here’s a slightly better view of the Nightshade hair pins, taken outside!

I was thinking it would be fun to do sets, like, “healer’s herbs” or “witch’s herbs”, or putting like… the flower of a plant in one larger pin and then the berries or leaves or some other part of the plant in two or three smaller ones.

I also thought some nice big, wispy moss would look stellar inside them.
