“Where do you think the money went?” he repeated.
“Guns?” asked Jesper.
“Ships?” queried Inej.
“Bombs?” suggested Wylan.
“Political bribes?” offered Nina. They all looked at Matthias. “This is where you tell us how awful we are,” she whispered.
He shrugged. “They all seem like practical choices.”
“Sugar,” said Kaz.
Jesper nudged the sugar bowl down the table to him.
Kaz rolled his eyes. “Not for my coffee, you podge. I used the money to buy up sugar shares and placed them in private accounts for all of us—under aliases, of course.”
“I don’t like speculation,” said Matthias.
“Of course you don’t. You like things you can see. Like piles of snow and benevolent tree gods.”
“Oh, there it is!” said Inej, resting her head on Nina’s shoulder and beaming at Matthias. “I missed his glower.”
“Besides,” said Kaz, “it’s hardly speculation if you know the outcome.”
May I ask you some question? Do you think it’s possible if the true name’s our ciel maybe mean star? Because I noticed that yana sensei drew star very often for example the chapter in green witch, the picture that celebrate ciel’s birthday(every year). Every picture will have star such as meteor, Small stellated dodecahedron. Thanks in advance!!!. I’m sorry if my grammar was wrong.I can write english language a little.
I’ve always suspected that if 2CT were true and if we were to ever get to know Ciel’s true name, then it could be among these initial name ideas for Ciel Yana mentioned in the Character Guide:
And voilà, we have “Astre” which means “star” in French :)
Another idea that was brought up by a Japanese fan and I found somewhat cute was “Noel”. It would rhyme with Ciel -in Japanese at least- (not that twins’ names have to rhyme lol) and since Ciel’s birthday is in December aka Christmas season, it would maybe match him.
….Now I can hear my French followers screaming “Please NOT Noel, that’s too boring a name” and “What’s ASTRE that isn’t even a name” haha xD
There seems to be a shirtless bandwagon going on so I thought I might as well just slip this in here: G!Sans caught shirtless by his S/O? Only if you're up for it, of course, I understand that you're busy :)
(* I’m all about the shirtless bandwagon. x] I decided to use Echotale’s G!Sans for this one since it has him wearing a sweater under his jacket. )
You’ve had a crush on G for a while now, and you’re currently sitting in his room, trying to bug him into grabbing dinner with you at somewhere other than Grillby’s.
“what’s wrong with grillbz? you love his burgs. the alcohol’s pretty cheap, too.” He’s sitting backward in a chair while you’re standing in front of him, rolling your eyes.
“That’s not the point. It would just be nice to eat somewhere where we’re not sitting on bar stools.”
“hm.. this is sounding like a date,” he claims in a matter-of-fact tone. Your face turns red, and he draws in a deep inhale of his cigarette, golden eyes watching you carefully. Damn him; he’s always so observant. You know for a fact that the reddening of your cheeks is giving you away!
“No.. well, a friend date, sure. Whatever gets us in a decent restaurant.” You avert your gaze, frowning. Why did you even bother? It’s not like he’s going to–
“ok.” He sets his cigarette in an ash tray on his desk and stands. You look at him in complete surprise.
“Okay?” you parrot.
He nods. "yeah, sure. let’s do it.“ Happiness blooms in your chest, and you grin. You’re so shocked that you almost don’t register him taking off his fur-lined jacket and tossing it on his mattress.. followed by his sweater.
The sight of his ribcage startles you. You’ve seen his forearms exposed, but that’s about it, so you’re instantly blushing and trying to look away. "What are you doing, G?!”
“what? i’m changing for our date.”
Your blush deepens. You can’t stop stealing glances at him, and of course, that fact doesn’t escape him. With a smirk, he crosses the room with confident strides. You find yourself backing up until your back hits the wall. He plants a hand on either side of your shoulders, and you’re forced to drag your gaze from his exposed ribs, to his face.
He’s wearing a broad smirk.
“like what you see? i didn’t know you had a thing for guys that are bad to the bone.”
“Geez! I-it’s not that, I’m just.. surprised,” you stammer your excuse. Your gaze drops, and you notice that half of his pelvis is showing, too. His pants ride rather low on his hips.
He chuckles. "yeah, sure. maybe i should just wear the jacket without a shirt.“ He finally steps out of your space and crosses the floor to grab his jacket from his bed. After pulling it on, you see that it’s cropped short enough that it doesn’t conceal much. "what do you think? can i pull it off?”
Of course he can; it looks fantastic on him. The exposed bones only make him look sexier and edgy at the same time.
“Just.. get dressed so we can eat already!” you say instead, before turning on your heel and walking away from that knowing smirk.
