Laurent bends his legs, pulling his ankles out of direct sunlight and back into the shade of the poolside umbrella. He’s had sunburned feet once in his life, and never plans to repeat it. He throws an annoyed glance at Damen, who is stretched out on the adjacent lounge chair. Damen has spent the last three days turning steadily browner while being very lax about sunscreen.
The villa they’ve rented on the west coast of Santorini has its own pool as well as its own tiny courtyard complete with mosaic floor and fountain. Sunshine off white stone and white paint makes it feel overbright and otherworldly during the day, shimmering with heat and light. Laurent tried for an hour this morning to go over his notes on the Theran eruption and the formation of the caldera, but the heat snuck into his brain, and he can’t make himself mind. He feels looser, and happier, than he ever imagined he could.
The ratings for the show’s finale were unprecedented. With the story of Erasmus and Kallias under their belts, the finale was marketed as an even more shocking twist, and Laurent and Damen have become the new faces of unexpected romance. They’ve been asked to present at the Logies, and to appear on every morning show in the country.
Laurent has never been a celebrity in his own right, nor wanted to. He’s… adjusting.
The most obvious benefit is that Damen’s stock in the eyes of his PR department has shot way, way up, and his father has–after a long talk with both Damen and Laurent, which left Laurent feeling like he’d run a marathon–agreed that Damen will assume control of the company as planned. Theomedes looked like a man who’d already planned the first three years of his luxury retirement and had one impatient foot out the door; he was ready to throw Damen the reins immediately.
Damen promptly turned around and declared that he was leaving the company in the care of his brother Kastor for six months, extending the leave of absence he’d taken to come on the show.
“To do what?” Theomedes demanded.
“This and that,” said Damen, eyes dancing at Laurent. “Expand my horizons. Travel.”
nina and matthias never have that moment where they realize they’re on the same side and therefore can’t trust each other
by some miracle they make it out of the ice court alive without nina having any parem
wylan never finds the courage to stand beside jesper on the way home because he’s too shy in his own skin
without the promise of reward for the scientist inej doesn’t consider her dream of hunting slavers possible, which means she never tells kaz so he has no reason to ask her to stay in ketterdam with him, and inej goes on thinking he doesn’t have deeper feelings for her
they go back to the barrel empty handed and their friendships never strengthen and most importantly to kaz—they never make their millions
pekka, heleen and van eck are still at large
kaz never gets the help he needs to find inej’s parents
there’s really no reason to work with wylan again since raske is better with demolition after all and they’re not working with jan anymore
jesper’s life lacks chaos without any big heists and he goes back to gambling regularly
and poor matthias
he still meets his fate the same way when it’s found out he’s not in hellgate anymore. but the sad difference is it would have all been for nothing….
spoiler: it’s just not realistic.jpg stop acting like the story could exist without him. he’s a crucial character thanks bye
take a picture of the sim that’s normally associated with your blog (your legacy founder/lead character in your story etc.), now take away all their cc (except their hair, eyebrows, and skin color), then do a before and after picture.
The pictures on the left have overlays + makeup and the pictures on the right have nothing. I’m actually super lame and never use overlays/makeup much >.>
YOOOO if you haven’t watched the trailer/actors’ presentations for the AO!! Stage Play (All Out!! the Stage), HERE IT IS!
I’m!?!? So excited wtf!!?!? They’re so handsome and pretty and ughh, I already love them.
If someone knows where can I buy a DVD version from outside Japan I’d appreciate it!
This would be even more perfect if there were some Ryōin guys, but I’m more than happy with the inclusion of Keijo and Sagami! (Besides from our lovely JinKou, of course.)
Also, on the official YouTube channel there are short presentations from each of the actors individually! Do check them out if you’re interested, they’re marvellous. (And the automatic translations from Japanese crack me up, but might get you pissed).
I went to Ereda to get sage scroll for event to finally Lv99 my Apostasia and I met a friend in there on the opposite team who didn’t recognize me (or read the chat) and he brutally murdered me I got my sage scroll in the end
