Digimon 30 day challenge

Day 29: favorite quote.

*All quotes here are translated from a Brazilian fansub, so they may not match English official sub.

It’s actually a dialogue from episode 35 of Adventure:

Jou: (sad face) How will we be able to pass that fog?
Gomamon: Jou, didn’t you learn it at school?
Jou: Of course not! They don’t teach how to make fires and wash dishes at school.
(blinks) So what do they teach?
Jou: It doesn’t matter what they teach. I’m worried about that fog!

It’s subtle, but shows a big change in Jou’s character. Remember that in early episodes all he wanted was to go back home and to his normal life as a student. He worried too much about little things. I don’t remember if he actually talks about school, but it is easy to conclude that he cares too much about studies. This is confirmed here (a dialogue from earlier in the same episode):

Jou: 54? This is my lowest grade in eleven years of life!
Gomamon: Cheer up! In life, we have ups and downs.
Jou: (smiles) I have to tell my parents I’ll be late tonight.

Along with being another scene that subtly shows Jou’s growth, it shows that Jou is a good student. Also, he shows more than once in the show he plans to be a doctor in the future, which means he has to study a lot.

In episode 53, this change in Jou’s character is not subtle anymore:

It’s true. At the beginning all I could think was to run away from this place [the Digital World], but here I learned many things I wouldn’t have studying for the entrance exams.

And in Adventure 02 there two moments in which Jou shows that his studies are not his top priority anymore:

1) In episode 5, he is talking to his friends before classes begin, and one of them mentions an upcoming test. His digivice reacts, alerting that Gomamon is in danger. He tell his friends that he’s going to miss all the school day (including the test) and runs to Odaiba Elementary.

Gomamon: You came…
Jou: Of course! Even though we’re apart I still worry about you.

There is also this line in the same episode (he says it to Iori after he tells Armadimon he missed kendo practice because he wanted to):

I missed a test today as well, but it’s no problem because I wanted to be here. They call us the Chosen Children, but it’s us who choose what we have and what we want to do.

2) In episode 16, when Iori goes back to the real world to get Jou, he is the middle of a test. He leaves the test to help the gang.

Iori: Jou-san, I’m sorry! How can I make up to you?
Jou: Don’t worry about it! I was very shocked at first, but there was nothing else you could do!

Iori: I’m so, so sorry!
Jou: I told you, it’s okay!

Jou gives Iori a lot of life advice, he so wise <3

Jou shows that, even after 3 years, the Digital World (and Gomamon) holds a special place in his heart, to the point he abandons his duties (a.k.a his studies) for it. 

And, in the epilogue, he becomes the first Digimon doctor. Surprise! Or not

And he has Gomamon to thank for all this. If it wasn’t for his cute aquatic Digimon, he wouldn’t have grown so much.

What follows are the three great ironies of the Assassin Order:
1. Here we seek to promote peace, but murder is our means.
2. Here we seek to open the minds of men, but require obedience to a master and set of rules.
3. Here we seek to reveal the danger of blind faith, yet we are practitioners ourselves.


Rumbelle Week / Day Threed
Rumbelle+Colours: Silver

Belle spent the last few minutes just staring at her own reflection. No mistaking what was in front of her very eyes; gingerly, she lifted a hand to press to the side of her head. Although still shy of her thirtieth year, she was surprised it wasn’t more prevalent, considering all the stress they’d faced over the last few weeks. Now, how to -

“Belllleeeeeeeeeeeeeee” Came the muffled whine from the adjoining room. Speaking of stress, it had been a long and trying day, and both of them were beyond tired.

With a wry smile, Belle stepped to the doorway of the master bath, looking in on the bedroom. Rumplestiltskin lay flat on his back on the bed, limbs splayed out in the exact position where she’d left him 10 minutes prior. The only difference being that he’d managed to change into his blue silk pajamas (that she’d often favored wearing herself many-a-morning). He’d tossed a pillow across his eyes to block out the offending bathroom light. Switching everything off, she carefully made her way over to the bed while her eyes adjusted to the moonlight peeking through the drapes.

Rumplestiltskin cracked an eye open at her as she perched on the edge of the bed.

“Everything alright Sweetheart? You usually spend less time in there than I do.”

“Hmm,” Belle peeled off her slippers. “I found one.”

“Found what?”

“…A white hair.”

The other eye popped open. “What?”

She pointed to the side of her head to touch the offending strand.

Rumple just stared at her for a moment in semi- amusement, then flopped over on his side, facing away from her in a halfhearted sulk.

“Oh yes,  right. ONE.”

Despite the playful timbre to his voice, Belle felt a bittersweet ache in her heart. He never spoke of it out loud, but she could tell the gap in their physical ages sometimes bothered him.

Gently, she reached over and carded the shining streak that lived near his left temple. The one that lately seemed to be growing day by day, that could usually only be seen peeking out from the tufts of his long hair.  The one she secretly adored.

He grunted as she crawled under the sheets and snuggled up behind him. Lightly running the back of her finger up the line of his jaw, she stroked the soft sideburns which were also peppered with gray.

 “Mr. Gold has a silver lining,” She purred, trying to soothe. “But only I get to touch.”

Finally, Rumple smiled. “You can touch as much as you like,” he said, pulling her into his embrace and tucking her under his chin.

“Really?” Asked Belle, with a hopeful note.


 Rumplestiltskin would regret those words come morning.
