Only took however long it took for Beth to murder Froopyland for Rick to regrow his arm. At this point however much of Rick is organic or cybernetic are irrelevant. It will always keep changing as time passes.
What does beg to question is this:
Question: you take a broom, you replace the handle, and then later you replace the brush. And you do that, over and over again. Is it still the same broom? Answer: no, of course it isn’t, but you can still sweep the floor.
You have replaced every piece of yourself, mechanical and organic, time and time again. There’s not a trace of the original you left.
We regret to report that after a valiant battle with cancer, our dear friend, Dancescape founder Fiona Sargeant, has passed away. As gishers will no doubt remember, Fiona spent her life helping young dancers’ dreams come true through her work at Dancescape ballet school in South Africa. We’re glad that gishers could help in some small way to preserve her legacy, and we send our deepest condolences to her family and friends.

Eight Year had been a little tense at first. Truth be told, Harry hadn’t expected so many of the Slytherins to come back to finish their education. And since Eight Years had a Common Room of their own, Harry soon had gotten used to see Malfoy, Zabini, Parkinson, Nott, and Greengrass a lot more than he had thought he’d see them.
Ron and a few others had grumbled about the Slytherins at first, but eventually even they had given it a rest, once it had become apparent than the Slytherins were actually trying to be decent to the rest of the students. And after a few months, all Eight Years were, if not friends, at least decent acquaintances. It had been so much more than Harry had expected.
He also hadn’t expected his eyes to start following Malfoy around again, but that had happened as well. And that time around, the reason for his interest in Malfoy was quite different. Though Harry tried to be discrete. There was no point embarrassing himself by revealing his crush on Malfoy. His plan was to wait for it to die eventually. So far, the crush had only grown.
Since everyone was on decent terms by Valentine’s Day, and since they were already adults, it was no surprised when a game of Truth or Dare and drinking were suggested for the holiday’s evening.
Hermione was firm in her belief that the game lacked severely in the consent department. Harry agreed with her. Not that she even needed his support since everyone had pretty much learned not to go against her strong opinions.
So nobody (openly) opposed her decision to make a little change to the game. And add a bit of romance, at least according to her. Harry was relived when she explained the changes. If a person really didn’t want to answer a truth or do a dare, they simply would have to drink instead. Even if they try to answer the truth or do the dare, either they wouldn’t be able to talk, or an invisible barrier would prevent them from completing the dare. If two or more people were involved in a dare, if even one of them didn’t want to participate in the dare, the person who got dared would have to drink.
Harry thought it clever that Hermione had added the drinking to her rules twist. This way, people were much more agreeable with it. And so the game began. The first time the modification spell took effect was when Justin was dared to slap Parkinson on the arse. Parkinson wasn’t too much into that, so Justin hit an invisible barrier only an inch from Parkinson’s arse.
A few more times the modification prevented a truth or a dare to be answered or completed. And Harry learned some interesting things about some people. Mainly about Malfoy. Okay, he was mostly interested in things about Malfoy. But he thought that everyone would find it interesting that Malfoy had gone out to the Muggle world on a few occasions after the War. The idea itself was so bizarre. But Harry would pay a fortune to see Malfoy in the Muggle world.
Half an hour after the game had begun, it had brought a new couple together. Apparently Greengrass and Nott were quite fond of each other and when Nott got dared to kiss Greengrass, the spell allowed them to do so. They had cosied up on the loveseat and were ignoring everyone else.
It was Parkinson turn to ask and she grinned in Harry’s direction.
“Well, Potter, Truth or Dare?”
“Dare.” shot Harry back.
“I was hoping you’d say that. Let’s see… I dare you to give Draco here a nice heartfelt kiss on the lips.”
Besides Harry, Ron burst into laughter. “Pfft, did you forget the new rules, Parkinson? No way this dare will end with anything other than drinking.”
It seemed to Harry that he had been quite successful at hiding his ogling of Malfoy. Or maybe it was just Ron who hadn’t noticed. It didn’t matter anyway. There was no way Malfoy would want to kiss Harry, so Harry didn’t have anything to worry about.
He focused his attention on Malfoy and walked to him. Harry couldn’t read the other boy’s face. There was annoyance, maybe? Something else?
“Let’s get this over with, Potter.”
Harry almost sighed in disappointment. In that very moment he wished Hermione hadn’t intervened with the rules. That way he could at least get a kiss from Malfoy.
He leaned towards Malfoy and prepared to hit the invisible barrier of the modification spell with his face. Except he didn’t hit it, so his lips landed on Malfoy’s, no resistance whatsoever.
Oh, Malfoy’s lips were so soft, so inviting. Harry could spend hours kissing them, biting them, licking them. The lower lip was fuller than Harry thought it would be, and he absolutely loved it.
A moment later the realization finally hit him and he opened his eyes. He stared right back at Malfoy’s comically wide grey eyes. Malfoy seemed to have realized what had happened as well. Well, there was only one logical thing for Harry to do. He grinned into the kiss and placed his hands on Malfoy’s waist, bringing their bodies flush against each other. Malfoy’s hands flew to Harry’s hair and he grabbed mercilessly at the dark locks. He had opened his lips invitingly and Harry deepened the kiss, his tongue meeting Malfoy’s.
Ron had the misfortune of taking a sip from his drink when the kiss had happened, and was still choking, not that Harry noticed. Malfoy had all of his attention. So Harry didn’t hear Parkinson speaking to her fellow Slytherins either.
“I told you all that Potter ogled Draco’s arse but noooo, you didn’t believe me. So, pay up now, losers!”
It may be the cold medicine talking, and I know we’ve got plenty of salt in this fandom but like… I love you guys. I love you for your snarky observations and your sexy gifs and your photo manips and your fan art and your salve-to-my-soul fanfiction and your absolutely-fucking-brilliant meta and your hilarious comments and for the real friendships I’ve made, and just having a tribe of people I can be ridiculously obsessed about this show and these actors with and you all just GET IT.
I love this hellsite because of you wonderful people. You make this fandom incredible. And I know I didn’t even tag everyone because I can’t think straight right now, but to all my mutuals and followers… ILY so much.
Once again I feel the need to help people in the Tokyo Ghoul fandom when it comes to the opinions we all share.
I go through a pretty simple process in order to reduce unnecessary aggression within a community, in a few points:
As long as you don’t insult or show anger towards anyone in particular, you can say whatever the fuck you want, it’s your opinion after all.
Be proud of your opinion. Everyone has unique beliefs, it comes with being a human being.
Be understanding. If you can acknowledge that everyone will have different beliefs, whether they align more with you or not, you will eventually realize that none of it matters.
Try not to comment anything unnecessary on another persons blog which may invoke a negative response, as this has a tendency to lead to more unnecessary aggression and bitter feelings.
Don’t attempt to invalidate the beliefs of others. If people think Tokyo Ghoul has bad writing, let them believe that. If people are happy with Tokyo Ghoul, let them be happy. It requires less effort to leave someone alone rather than choosing to challenge their opinion just because it’s different from your own.
There’s a difference between discussing or debating about a topic, and merely venting your emotions to each other which leads to nothing being gained from the conversation.
Most of these points should apply to anything concerning human interaction and not just the fan base of a fictional series. There would be much less hate among us if we were all willing to be open-minded about things.
