@artsyfalafel told me I should post the fixer upper I wrote for Legends. It’s not what is canonly going to happen, based on next weeks trailer, but I felt the need to write something so I could stop being angry.
Amaya found Ray in Mick’s room,
sitting on an overturned hamper and cradling some type of futuristic (to her)
gun in his hands, turning it over forlornly. He didn’t look up at her, though
she knew that he knew she was there.
“We were such idiots,” he muttered, lip curling in distaste, at himself, Amaya
realized. “Treating him that way, thinking he was just going to…I don’t know,
follow us loyally no matter what? We treated him like shit.”
“Can’t disagree with you there,”
Amaya said softly, dragging over a crate and sitting down next to him. “Though
I would like to point out that you are the only team member that admitted we
all distrusted him.”
Ray frowned harder, fingers
tightening on the gun. “That’s the thing. I did trust him. I trusted him enough
to be his partner, to take a beating for him in a goddamn Russian gulag. And
the worst part is that I still…”
“You still trust him.”
It wasn’t a question, and Ray
flinched. “Yeah,” he admitted. “Yeah, I do. He might have started out just a
thug and a criminal and an arsonist and a-”
He offered a thin smile. “Point. He
might have been those things…but he’s changed. He got captured, and fucked up,
and he’s smart, I know he is, he taught me how to take apart and put this gun
back together in less than thirty seconds, and it wasn’t even his.”
“Whose was it?” Amaya asked
Ray winced, absentmindedly starting
to pull apart the cold gun. “Snart’s.”
“The guy who Mick left us for?”
“He wasn’t that nasty when he
died,” Ray said, studying the slowly falling apart cold gun. “He died for us. The Legion just got an eviler
version of him. Neither of them…”
He trailed off yet again, eyebrows
furrowing and jaw tightening as he stared down at the gun. Amaya, mistaking his
falter for emotion, reached a hand out and settled it on his knee. “It’s okay.
I believe you. Mick is a good guy. I-”
“Look at this.”
Ray ripped a piece of paper from
the inner workings of the gun, shoving it into Amaya’s hands and waiting breathlessly
while she skimmed it, once, twice, three times, eyebrows shooting up in
surprise. “This is…”
“A plan,” Ray confirmed, looking
over her shoulder to read it again.
find this, you nosy bastard. You fiddle to keep busy.
with Snart on purpose. We don’t know how the spear works. They won’t trust the
rest of you, but to them, I’m a criminal. Not a Legend.
probably hate me. S’fine. Not like they don’t already. I expect you to keep
quiet about this. The less people know, the better. I’m going to try and bring
Amaya with me. If she doesan’t come, fill her in.
figure out this damn stick, get rid of the Legion, and then we’re getting rid
of this godawful piece of wood for good.
my shit, and put the gun back together.
Amaya glanced at him. “Do we tell
Ray shook his head instantly,
folding up the note and tucking it into his breast pocket. “No. We protect him
subtly if we fight, but otherwise we don’t do anything unless he says. He understands
these guys better than any of us, especially Snart. I trust him.”
A small smile slid over Amaya’s
face. “I do too. And it seems he trusts us.”
Ray chuckled fondly, putting the
gun back together and setting it aside, cracking his knuckles as he stood back
up and offered a hand to Amaya. “Good. Because I’m gonna kill him when he gets
back. And then hug him.”
“You’ll be dead before you can lay
a finger on him.”
Remember how the Galra!Keith storyline was almost completely wasted because they didn’t include the most important scene of Keith telling the team that he’s part Galra and just kind of…. dropped it after Allura talks with Keith? I do.
Alright guys.. I need help with runes! I have a beautiful carved amethyst set that’s just been sitting in my drawer for a year, untouched. I don’t even know where to start.. Can someone shove resources my way? Also, while I’m (sort of) on the subject, any info about Norse deities and how to start working with them, how to introduce myself, and Norse mythology would also be super appreciated!
If any of you in the DL fandom dismiss or belittle people for their interest in Diabolik Lovers based on their gender, age, race, etc. then do me a big favor and UNFOLLOW ME.
I’m dead serious, I don’t need your support if you behave like this. I cannot believe the audacity that some DL fans have. Messaging and harassing other users anonymously because they’re cowards to even show their own face in fear of being called out. Smh. Sure DL was targeted for a female audience originally, but it’s not like it would hurt Rejet’s sales if males were interested and supported the series too. The amount of profit they make with DL will help them in the future. After all, they are a business, and they have rules to play by in order to remain in business.
To sum up, please remain open minded and friendly to other fans for this series. This is already a problematic fandom, so for once, let’s all enjoy this series peacefully and not start stupid drama. Grow up. Show some intelligence and maturity. I won’t tolerate any of this.
