may i request for akashi kise himuro midorima and takao telling their s/o that they love her for the very very first time

here’s a post with the others

Takao Kazunari doesn’t find it easy to say the words without overdramatizing it in his head. It’s the first time in his life he was lucky to have a moment with you - alone no less.

“Takao, you have to be careful next time…”

The war gets out of hand as each minute passes by. Outwitted and forced to retreat with only five remaining in their company, it’s evident that they would come out as losers. The forest they had dashed to provided sufficient cover as you continued to tend to Takao’s injured body. Gun wounds to deep gashes on his skin were everywhere, and the loss of his right arm proved to be a bigger issue due to the lack of proper supplies. You were forced to rip off some of your clothing to use as bandages to cover his wounds.

“____-chan…” Takao breathes your name in a weak whisper with that stupid smile of his plastered on his face. You continue to work with his body but stop once his hand grips your wrist firmly, causing you to turn your apprehensive expression to his smiling face.

“Can’t you smile for me?” It was always like this, Takao refused to see you in a saddened state. You try to pull your wrist away from his hand, to which his grip only grows stronger.

“Please.”

You can’t through your tears.

“Hey, don’t look at me like that.” With such a weak tone, you couldn’t do anything else but cry at his horrible state. It had been month after successful month of battles and celebration due to countless amounts of victory, allowing Takao to finally grab some of your time as he confessed he was no longer satisfied with his courtship and wanted to move the relationship forward.

“Smile, smile…” You try your best as the corner of your lips lift up to a crooked grin that Takao chuckles at. You can see that from the stiffened movements of his body that even laughter was painful.

“I finally get to be alone with you, and it’s like this…” You move your gaze away from Takao and managed to pull your wrist away from his grip to continue wrapping his arm. You refuse to think of negative possibilities, but they never fail to remain within the back of your mind.

“Hey, can I have a kiss?” You stop in your movements and look at Takao with a red face. Even through this moment of hopelessness did he manage to make you feel like a fool.

“Takao, stop messing around!”

You can tell that he can’t help but want to joke with you as he continues to ask for a ‘reward’. After you finally manage to stop him from pestering you, the silence hovers and weighs down your shoulders while breaths reverberated through the darkness.

“I love you.”

You stop and look at Takao who has his eyes focused on your face.

“I love you and your hardworking attitude. I love you and your embarrassed face. I love you and your tenacity. I promised myself I’d protect you with these arms of mine, and now I only have one!” Takao’s laughing at the last statement while you sit there with your vision blurred.

“Stupid Takao, don’t tell me that like you’re going to die.” You refuse to hear this, this isn’t what you wanted.

“I love you.”

“Stop it.”

“I love you so much.”

“Stop!”

“I…”

Then all falls silent.

Have you decided what the next FOTS single will be?

Currently I’m planning to do “This Means War” next. We’ll see what happens though, that could change.

Instead of getting Civil War next year, what it Marvel gave us Civil THOR

A 2 hour movie in the MCU about Thor teaching the audience how to be respectful and courteous. There is no action or plot but Stan Lee makes an appearance as “rude passerby #2” and Thor proves that even though he may be unpleasant, you can still treat him civilly

The Next War

“War’s a joke for me and you,
While we know such dreams are true.”
Siegfried Sassoon

Out there, we’ve walked quite friendly up to Death,-
Sat down and eaten with him, cool and bland,-
Pardoned his spilling mess-tins in our hand.
We’ve sniffed the green thick odour of his breath,-
Our eyes wept, but our courage didn’t writhe.
He’s spat at us with bullets and he’s coughed
Shrapnel. We chorussed when he sang aloft,
We whistled while he shaved us with his scythe.

Oh, Death was never enemy of ours!
We laughed at him, we leagued with him, old chum.
No soldier’s paid to kick against His powers.
We laughed, -knowing that better men would come,
And greater wars: when each proud fighter brags
He wars on Death, for lives; not men, for flags.

- Wilfred Owen

With the reception of the new Fire Emblem game, I can’t wait for the next Advance Wars where you get to put a bikini on a tank and rub it’s face.

Out there, we’ve walked quite friendly up to Death,-
Sat down and eaten with him, cool and bland,-

He’s spat at us with bullets and he’s coughed

Why
  • Me:okay, so the author says that katara and zuko are about to meet!! gonna be interesting to see these two deep and complex characters meet someone so similar to them, but on the opposite side of the 100 year war imagine all the toxic ideas they'll overcome because of things like their shared traits and relationship development and heart to heart convos :D there's no way it could be reduced down to shallow, superficial shit nope zuko and katara have a whole lot more going on in their relationsh-
  • Random ass fic:"my evil enemy who just unnecessarily murdered everyone except for me cuz lol plot is mighty fine af like damn lemme forget war atrocities and personal pain and goals for peace all dat shit cuz imma need 100% focus on getting some prince diq good thing he only focuses on my beautiful ass too and nothing like fire nation government and state of the world or the fucking avatar cuz I wanna have steamy steam sex lets fuck fire boi"
  • Me:*closes fic*
  • Me:god has left us

A “Much Different” General Ross is Coming to “Captain America: Civil War”

IGN recently spoke with William Hurt, who revealed some new information about his role in next year’s “Civil War”:

I loved playing Ross the first time because I was able to try and create an ego as big as the monster he was chasing. And one that was as warped too,“ he said. ”[Ross in Civil War] is different because it’s a different style. It’s a more modernized style. And what they’ve done is they’ve taken a character who was the Ross from the older film and made a new version. This is a much newer Ross. A much different Ross. And I liked that a lot. I haven’t had a lot of time to understand it, but I’m doing the best I can. And they haven’t fired me yet.

What’s so different about the role this time that might take some getting used to? Hmmmm…

—  The Next War, by Wilfred Owen 1918

I’ve been writing the summary for next week’s Civil War reading and also trying to catch up to current comics (I just finished comics from the first week in June) and also re-reading some Avengers Assemble comics from last year. The contrasts even between 2007 and now, a gap of less than ten years, are sort of remarkable. 

I don’t actually know (I’d have to look it up) if there were major editorial changes between then and now; I know 2008, with the Iron Man film, was a turning point for Marvel as a company but I don’t know if it was a turning point for Marvel comic books. Disney bought Marvel in 2009, but that isn’t necessarily indicative of much, again, in terms of the comics. Especially since it’s not like Disney’s record with regards to some of what I’m seeing is particularly great either. 

I often bemoan Marvel’s behaviors, and sometimes it seems the company has taken steps backwards in terms of representation and diversity since earlier eras. But looking at the way women in particular are treated in the Civil War comics – looking at the Ms. Marvel comics in 2007 and the Captain Marvel and Ms. Marvel comics today, just as an example – there is a marked contrast for the better. In the quality of prose and dialogue as well as the quality of representation, though mostly I’m talking about representation and just…basic narrative elements.

There seems to be more room in the narratives in 2015 for kindness, for humor, for stories that don’t directly revolve around punching – stories about being different and navigating that difference, about carrying burdens and mentorship and friendship. I understand dark stories carry a purpose and make a point, and I like a good dose of cynicism as much as the next guy who was a teenager in the nineties; I’m really enjoying Moon Knight too, for example. But the kinder stories feel like they’re the other side of the coin – like darker stories point out the flaws in society and the funnier, gentler ones show how to fix them, set an example. They’re not more valid, perhaps, but not less valid either, even though traditionally they’re undervalued as narratives in modern literary culture. If there aren’t as many as I’d like, I do at least like what I see. 

You do get the odd total shitshow like Superior Iron Man, which neither criticises nor exemplifies, but there’s so much more to counter stuff like that than there used to be. 

I don’t know what twists and turns took place to encourage this – clearly something happened, especially since Marvel and DC in 2014 looked like they weren’t even on the same planet, let alone producing within the same media – but I think at least a significant chunk of the credit probably comes down to writers fighting for the stories they wanted to tell that weren’t the same old punchface-die-and-resurrect rigmarole we’d had for the twenty-five years previous. I mean I don’t know what goes on behind the office walls at Marvel but I got an instinct that the people who are writing the books I like right now had to fight really hard for them, and I don’t know if that’s talked about very often. 

So while there is still a long way to go I want to acknowledge that there are tentpole writers at Marvel who are killing it in a way that was barely possible in 2007, and I appreciate that they and possibly their editors clawed these really great stories out of the mess that was early-oughts Marvel Comics. And it makes me very excited for what they’ll do in the next eight years.
