Keith: (slowly and a little too loud) Hey, It’s me Keith. I am your fa-ther. We are bonding? Yes?

Lance: Keith, no. Just no. You know, she can’t talk, right? Try again. Just talk to her, like a normal person and not, I don’t know, like you are a robot who works with the elderly, maybe? 

Keith: Hi, I’m your dad.

Lance: Better.

Keith: Well, one of your dads. You have two dads. Your other dad, Lance, he is going to be a great dad. You’re a lucky little girl. Honestly, I have no idea what I am doing, but I’ll love you. I love you now, more than I thought I could ever love someone I just met. And I promise I will always protect you. In fact, I’d slaughter-

Lance: Uh, I’m gonna stop you there, Keith. Up until the slaughtering, you were doing great. Can I have our baby back, now? 

(Lance looks like a man who regrets his life choices and it cracks me up. He doesn’t. Just the fact that Keith really has no clue about babies is dawning on him.)

It turns out that I was mistaken and that it was Otabek who came up with most of the ‘YURI ON DARKNESS/GALAXY/TIGER’ show names (okay, Yurio definitely came up with YURI ON TIGER), and I am once again reminded that the dude who kidnapped Yuri and told him he had beautiful eyes is every bit as extra as the tiny punk.

OOH HE DID IT. HE GOT BETTER.

YOU GO TINY KUROGANE YOU KILL THE THING.

I see Eyepatch man standing their calmly as he stares directly into the exploding monster and I am overcome. 

Hnnnng. 

Guys this is go great. Do you remember Koryo? This is such the complete inversion of that that I am convinced that part of the reason they went to Koryo at all was so that they could have a pre-established comparison for Kurogane’s homeworld. They’re all just so grateful and calm and THAT GUY HAS A BLEEDING ARM but he doesn’t even care because he’s just so happy that Kurogane got there in time. 

WE DON’T GET THIS KIND OF OPEN RESPECT AND HAPPINESS BETWEEN PEASANTS AND THEIR NOBLE FAMILIES VERY OFTEN AND I AM DRINKING IN EVERY MOMENT OF IT. I love it all. I love the context this gives to Kurogane’s attempt to get stronger and just how literal their protection of their country really is. 

But also just like.

“I could lick it, and it’d heal up fine!”

Sounds like something a vampire would say.

I’m not saying that Seishirou should check to see if that guy is Subaru in disguise but, I mean, let’s be real, Seishirou WOULD check to see if that guy is Subaru in disguise.

He’s invaded entire worlds on less words than that.

HELP I HAVE BEEN COMPROMISED HOW DARE YOU

Mom, I just wanna thank you for that one post about Ymir's death. I knew there was something making me uncomfortable about it but I didn't really know what, and your post summed that pretty well. I have to say I'm mad, tbh. Like, I don't think killing Ymir was just like the "dead lesbian" plot some stories (and some games~) use because Ymir's death wasn't simply related to her relationship w/ Historia and there was more to their stories as separeted characters, but I'm frustrated, cause I feel +

+ like it was simply illogical and useless to her character. I knew any of them could die at any moment because, well, we’re talking about SnK, but I’m sad that it happened this way. I started watching SnK when I was discovering myself as a lesbian, and Yumikuri was that one ship who helped me see myself as normal, because their relationship and their character arcs wasn’t only about them being girls who romantically liked each other, but people with their own issues trying to overcome those +

+ issues. So I guess that makes me extra sad, but at least I know that Ymir’s death doesn’t make them not canon anymore. This was mostly venting so I’m sorry omg (also you can publish this if you want, it’s ok)


I want to repeat something from a conversation I had with my friend @bossard right as the serum bowl was beginning.  She tossed it off as a quick aside but it summed up everything I was feeling. 

Something authors need to be aware of when they kill characters is that somewhere is someone for whom that character is deeply important. They see themselves there, the character helps them through their struggles, and is a touchstone of strength. It’s not just ‘I love this character’ but ‘this character is part of me’.

That was Erwin for me. It sounds like Ymir is that person for you.  And my heart breaks for you. I want to make my blanket fort bigger and invite you in! 

If my experience losing a beloved character is anything to go by, it’s going to hurt for a long time. He’s been out of the story for 8 months and I’m still not over it. But it’s like you said, a character’s death doesn’t make them matter less. It doesn’t make their relationships any less important. Or any less canon. 

We also have a wonderful fandom who will step in to help ease the hurt. I haven’t checked ao3, but I’m sure the talented yumikuri writers are firing up their reincarnation aus. If you find one that brings you comfort, please share it with me.

Much love to you, my dear!
