My theory for the Samurai Jack finale; after Ashi performs The Ultimate Sacrifice that allows Jack to return to the past and he undoes the future that is Aku, he starts his own family. The gods reward him with a daughter.
I’m half expecting Scaramouche to tell Aku that Jack has lost his sword right after Jack gets it back, prompting Aku to wind up dying and Scaramouche to wind up as Aku’s least favorite assassin post-mortem as a result.
The series ends with he and Demongo wandering off to be recurring ineffectual villains together.
Request: Hi can you do a scene with Joe involving a long time secret crush on a girl who he’s been really good friends with for a while, and something to do with them being in a pool together when he makes his move? It can be smutty but not required haha
“God, Conor!” Jack yelled after finishing the shot. “What the hell did you put in there?”
“Some Tequila, Vodka and just a little Rum for some extra fun.”
You rolled your eyes, jokingly as the two brothers began to bicker. Sure Jack took shots all the time but Conor had gone a little too far with that one.
“Here’s a re-fill.” Joe said, handing you a solo cup filled with beer.
All the boys were at your place for your annual pool party. Although it was pretty cold out, it was something you had been doing since the beginning of high school and since you had met the boys, you refused to let anyone else join. You met the boys through Joe, someone you had known ever since you could talk. Growing up, you weren’t the best of friends, just family friends, however when you moved to London, you connected with him and started getting closer. Now, you couldn’t go a day without talking to him and you practically live at each other’s places.
“It’s funny; every year you have this pool party…but no one actually goes in the pool.” Joe said, laughing as he watched the others take more shots.
“I know…I feel like it’s a waste of a perfectly good pool.”
“(y/n), you’re out of Rum! I’m going to Uber and pick some up.” Jack said, as he ordered an Uber.
“Wait, I want some food. I’ll come with.” Josh said, causing the others to pipe up at the sound of food.
Pretty soon, it was just you and Joe drinking in your backyard. It was quiet as you two stared off into the sky, enjoying the peace and quiet you had while the others were gone.
“Come on.” You said, placing your cup down and standing up. “Let’s go for a dip.”
“It’s probably freezing.” Joe said, looking at the pool.
“You won’t know until you try, come on!”
You extended your arms, pulling Joe up and dragging him towards the pool. You knew it was pretty warm since you had been warming it up all day so you weren’t afraid to just jump in. Joe, however…was terrifed. You laughed as he thought it through and couldn’t believe he was being this childish. You pulled your shirt over your head, took off your shorts and looked over at him.
“You either jump by yourself or I’m pushing you in.”
“Okay, okay.” He said, taking his shirt off. He took one last breath and jumped in, causing you to follow suit. “It’s warm…” He said, shocked. “You little shit.”
You laughed as Joe began to splash you. You knew he was dumb but not this dumb. “I wouldn’t leave it freezing.” You said, swimming over to him.
“You’re still a little shit.”
Joe took your arm, bringing you closer to him. Before you had time to say anything, he closed the gap between your lips.
“Joe…” You said, pulling away.
“6 years. I’ve been wanting to do that for 6 years.”
“Well, what took you so long?”
“I can never tell what you’re thinking…” He said, causing you to laugh.
“My dad always told me I had a good poker face. Can you tell what I’m thinking now?” You asked, wrapped your arms around his neck.
“I have a pretty good idea.” Your lips curled into a smile before Joe kissed you once again.
Oh my gosh, what if Burnie's always hearing shouting in the background and complaints from Geoff and assumes he has somehow adopted actual children? The first time he comes to the penthouse or Geoff gives in and brings them on a lunch he's confused and horrified and leaves with the understanding that they're much worse than actual children; they're children who can drive and swear and blow shit up
Burnie has known Geoff for a long time and was always willing to lend a hand when Geoff was just a one man show. Even after he had Jack, Burnie was still fond of them and wanted to see them succeed. When one day after they hadn’t talked in a while, Burnie hears commotion on the other side of the phone. Geoff seems exasperated, tired, and irritable. “These boys won’t shut the fuck up,” Geoff moans. Burnie thinks that maybe Geoff recruited some minors into his crew, or even worse, actually adopted children. The next time Burnie visits the penthouse he’s wary, and ready to tell Geoff off for involving children of any kind with their life of crime. He’s astonished to meet four grown men that shake his hand and act just vaguely polite about meeting him before losing interest in a shipment of weapons that Trevor just brought in. Burnie understands the pained expression on Geoff’s face and wishes him luck. He’s got a job on his hands, but Burnie can see the danger in those boys and knows Geoff will be fine.
Because rewatching some eps of Codename: Kids Next Door, and hoping Galactic KND will get approved after the Samurai Jack revival’s astounding success. made me think about a few things:
I was wondering about how, amongst the pecadilloes-of-adulthood-based supervillains, a villain based on actual severe child abuse would be, but then I realized that’s basically what Father is.
Like, patriarchial figure who is almost literally a looming shadow, literally firey temper that he takes out on his kids’ failures, forcibly physically altered children to conform to his standards, ultimately kind of a loser and the product of abuse himself…
The candy pirates like Stickybeard and Black John take on a weird subtext when you remember the role of sugarcane and molasses and the shipping thereof in the era of piracy, along with what else was shipped then, Probably not an intentional subtext, but an interesting one nontheless…
While the Galactic KND show would probably reveal it, am I the only one who suspects that the Book of KND may have been a Galactic Kids Next Door plant? Like, to spread their organization and ideology throughout the cosmos?
Related to the above, given the issue of it as a McGuffin, why don’t they make more copies of The Book of KND? Like, I mean, if they distributed it as a .TXT file it could probably avoid the issue of being that sort of keystone McGuffin via sheer proliferation. Are they afraid that adults will take the book and alter it to give false info or something?
Also, while the origin of adults in Operation A.R.C.H.I.V.E. was apparently confirmed to be false, I wonder if it’s actually true for the founders of the Galactic KND, maybe with them being an Axolotl-type neonetynous species who produced clones of their “obsolete” adult form as servants.
Maybe it spread virally even, explaining their belief that adulthood is a rapidly spreading universal disease, true or not, while still reconciling it with .
God I hope Galactic KND gets greenlit after the Samurai Jack revival’s success. Ditto for the Courage revival…
My favorite headcannon is that Jack has an amazing singing voice and he doesnt even know it.
One day when they’re driving in the car, Bitty has his Sappiest Love Songs Ever playlist going, and Jack’s hitting every note in If I Ain’t Got You. By now Bitty knows Jack can sing, so he posts a video of Jack just going at it on his twitter. The offical Falcs account retweets it. Lin-Manuel Miranda retweets it. Bad Bob retweets it with a “He definitely got that one from his mother”. #WhatThePuckZimmermann is trending #1. The world absolutely loves that this big, quiet, awkward hockey bro also belts it out to sappy love songs on long drives, and Bitty is so proud they finally get to see a part of the real Jack.
cartoon network isnt even trying to be slick with its laziness/greed they just keep making spinoffs and reboots of shows and movies that already have a fanbase, watering them down into simple and easy to produce shows, and capitalizing on an already guaranteed audience
usually i wouldnt complain but it keeps
like. reboots are fine. reboots can be done well. we just got a fantastic one for samurai jack. but after watching all of these shows quite a bit and trying to find positives in them, i still am just left with a bad taste in my mouth and the strong impression that CN is only after ratings, not trying to produce shows that actually have originality or depth or creativity
and that impression is especially reinforced when they give their shows that ARE original and creative erratic airing times, random hiatuses, and choose to advertise for the same episode of teen titans go 100 times rather than give a single preview of anything else
this show is killing me like jack the ripper travels 130 years into the future and after literally a few hours has already figured out how to get money, a hotel room w/ no i.d. of any kind, work a cell phone, dress himself in current styles, and pick up chicks in night clubs meanwhile h.g. wells wandered around, got hit by a taxi, and can’t even walk straight
