Inktober 2017 break - Research for the illustrations. Belongs to Mairi.
Aannnd this is not inktober folks :D hehehe It’s my break day, I got lazy, the real inktober will come tomorrow -w- in the meantime, here are some researches for the characters: featuring Fusehime, Yatsufusa and the witch Tamasuza from the story The Eight Dog Chronicles of Kyokutei Bakin <3
I know we as a fandom have decided to ignore the weird werewolf aging but I can’t help but think about it. The fact is at this point Stiles will age and die long before Derek (or any of the other wolves) will die. My way around this is by headcanoning that he is some sort of supernatural thing (which there’s a lot in canon to support this) and whatever he is alters his aging so he ages as weirdly as the wolves do. Or my other headcanon is that Stiles is 30 he and Derek have like 3 kids (all werewolves) and it hits him that thanks to the aging one day he’ll leave them all behind. Of course he doesn’t want that so he decides to finally take the bite and become a werewolf too.

Thank you for requesting Brett because he’s my favorite, so it makes me happy when people are as obsessed with Brett as I am!
I flinched as another arrow flew past almost hitting the boy I was crushing on. Ever since Liam introduced us, there was something about him that just peaked my interest. I know what they say about a wolf and a fox, but it seemed to work out well for my sister.
“Brett this way!” I screamed, waving my arms at him so he’d see me.
He looked up at me flashing his amber colored beta eyes. Another arrow came this time almost hitting me. It was pouring rain and I could barely see anything. I focused my kitsune hearing as another arrow came. I unsheathed my belt which was really my katana and sliced the arrow in two. Brett and his sister were now in front of me.
“this way.” I called through the rain and took off running.
Brett and his sister were following and so were the assassins. Brett’s sister stumbled falling down. Brett turned around to pick her up. The assassins were closing in on us now.
“Brett go to the animal clinic, Satomi and the others are already there.” I screamed unsheathing my katana again.
“what about you? I’m not leaving you.” Brett said grabbing my arms.
“go, get your sister to safety, I’ll be right there.” I said pushing him in the direction of the animal clinic.
He looked at me with guilt in his eyes before taking off. The assassins were now in front of me. They fired arrows but I blocked them all.
The one assassin came at me but I quickly tackled him and kicked the other two down. Once they were all down I ran back to the animal clinic.
“y/n!” my sister Kira said running over to hug me.
I wrapped my arms around her taking in her warmth. My eyes wandered until I found Brett hugging on to Satomi and his sister. It broke my heart. All these innocent Beacon Hills students being hunted mercifully.
“you saved me.” Brett’s sister said running over and hugging me.
I put my arms around her tiny frame and squeezed back.
“are you okay, I shouldn’t have left you.” Brett said checking my body for any wounds.
“Brett i’m fine.” I said grabbing his hands.
He looked up at me giving me his smile that he reserved for only some people.
“we owe you one.” Brett said hugging me.
I took the moment to just admire this feeling. I inhaled his intoxicating scent that drove the fox inside of me crazy.
“Kira, y/n do you want to go home with them and make sure they get back okay?” Scott asked kissing Kira’s forehead.
Kira and I shook our heads and followed Satomi and her pack. Kira took the front while I stayed at the back with Brett and his sister.
“why are they doing this brother?” Brett’s sister said in a tiny voice.
Brett sighed looking at his little sister.
“Because they’re bad people, but don’t worry I won’t let them hurt you.” I said smiling at the young girl.
Brett grabbed my hand giving it a squeeze. I’m sure he could hear my heart beat race at his touch. Finally we had gotten back to Satomi’s place, thankfully with no incidents.
“thank you girls you have no idea how much it means to us.” Satomi said taking Brett’s sister upstairs.
Brett rubbed his neck awkwardly as he looked at me and then Kira. I elbowed Kira a little bit hoping she’d get the hint.
“oh right, uh I’ll just uh wait outside.” Kira said walking out the door.
I watched her leave. Brett caught me off guard picking me up and holding me against the wall so I could reach his lips. In a split second his lips were on mine. It was a feeling of pure bliss.
Brett pulled away to catch his breathe. He backed away setting me back on the ground.
“sorry.” He said rubbing his neck again nervously.
“i’m not.” I said smiling at him.
“where are you off to next?” He asked lacing his fingers with mine.
“well i’m either going out for ice cream or to commit a heinous crime, i’ll decide in the car.” I smirked poking his cheek.
“well whatever you’re doing you might need this.” Brett said going over to his lacrosse bag and pulling out his Devenford Prep sweatshirt handing it to me.
“thanks.” I said putting it on over my wet clothes.
I was about to kiss him goodbye when Kira ran back in.
“Scott’s got a plan to catch the benefactor.” She said her breathing ragged.
“alright let’s go then.” I said turning back to Brett.
“I’m going with you.” Brett said grabbing a dry jacket.
“Brett please, people just tried to kill you for money stay here where it’s safe.”
“y/n I’m not letting you do this alone, especially not after that.” He said pointing the wall where we were just making out.
“we have to go.” Kira said walking back out.
“I’m going with you.” Brett said grabbing my hand and walking out the door.
Stiles picked us up in his jeep and explained the plan to us. Kira tried to protest but Scott was already going through with it. I wrapped my arms around her until we arrived at the hospital. We walked in where everyone else was. Kira saw Scott and started to cry. He really looked dead.
“what’s he doing here?” Liam asked glaring at Brett.
“He’s an extra set of claws, so be thankful.” I snapped maybe a little too aggressively.
“alright, it’s in place, the benefactor should be on their way.” Stiles said looking up from the numerous computer screens.
“what’s our exit strategy?” I asked Stiles noticing the lights start to flicker, meaning the benefactor wasn’t the only one coming.
“our what?” Stiles asked completely dumbfounded.
“you know our exit strategy, in case this whole thing goes south, what are we going to do to save Scott and ourselves.” I said glaring at Stiles.
I honestly did like Stiles but sometimes his plans sucked, and he didn’t think them through all the way.
“oh god, this is how I die.” I said noticing the Berserkers coming up on the monitor.
“please like I’d ever that happen.” Brett said from beside me, putting his hand on my lower back.
“Liam and I will take the roof you and Brett take the corridor, we can’t let Kate or the berserkers get to Scott.” Kira panicked unsheathing her katana.
I followed her motion unsheathing mine and leading Brett down the corridor.
“I don’t think they’re here.” Brett said before a berserker threw him into a wall.
“Brett!” I screamed before running at the berserker.
I swung my sword connecting with the bone armor of the berserker but I wasn’t strong enough to knock it down. In one swipe of it’s arm I was hurtling down the hall into the wall. I could hear a crack and honestly didn’t want to know where it came from. Brett stood up completely wolfed out now. He charged at the berserker swiping at it with his claws. The berserker went down but quickly got back up. It grabbed Brett by his throat putting him up against the wall. I quickly ran over swinging my sword at it. The berserker dropped Brett an turned it’s attention back to me before disappearing completely.
“y/n” Brett said running over to me.
I embraced him kissing his lips gently.
“are you okay?” He asked cupping my cheeks with his hands.
“thanks to you.” I said bringing my hand up to put on his.
“I guess we make a pretty good team then huh?” He said kissing my nose.
PS: Let me explain why Mashima drew Wendy and Jackal like that. Because the people who voiced them in the anime announced their marriage earlier.
Terashima Takuma (Jackal’s VA) said on his radio show that he’s been dating Sato Satomi (Wendy’s VA) for eight years ^^ So that’s why we got that sketch!! But I was right, Mashima will do something after they announced their marriage >w<
