WE DO knot ALWAYS LOVE YOU Part 13 Full translation.
6th sector - Kuchiki clan mansion.
On the morning of the day they were to head to the Kinin Noble Assembly, Renji passed through the Kuchiki clan’s huge main gate with a nervous expression. As he advanced on the stone pavement that had been swept clean, he was greeted by an old man with white hair wearing a pair of round spectacles - Seike Nobutsune, an attendant attached to Byakuya.
“Abarai sama, we have been expecting you”
Calmly bowing, he opened the door of the (genkan) entryway, “please come inside”
“Nah, I’ll meet her in front of the entrance……”
“I have been informed to tell you that you are to join Byakuya sama for breakfast”
“With the captain!? U-understood”
Renji became increasingly nervous, moving awkwardly, he followed behind Seike.
hey, this might be a bit weird, but like, i wrote a fic based on that "julia lived" adventure zone comic you drew (that i really really loved btw, like, your artstyle is so awesome). tumblr doesnt seem to like me sending whole links, but its "/works/9890165" as the url modifier on ao3 if you wanted to read it
"I remember thinking I just want more. This isn’t it. Fame is not the goal. Money is not the goal. To be able to know how to get peace of mind, how to be happy, is something you don’t just stumble across. You’ve got to search for it.”
I got some free time during my weekend (somewhat) off, so here’s some little thoughts about the identity of everyone’s favourite text box narrator that pops up with every tree, rock, and ruin.
The first thing that should be made clear is that our narrator (or speaker cuz that’s what I usually call them) presumably knows about the current events in the game, at least surrounding Gus. We’re going to assume that the speaker is speaking in the present with present knowledge of what’s going on, hence suggesting not to bother the talking rock afterwards or stating that tree time~ is over. If we assume the speaker is aware and in a way present, we narrow down the options of who it might be.
At first, I thought it was just a thing that talked about Gus. RPG, text box showing up when the character interacts with things. Classic, what I’m used to. Somewhere along the line though, I realized that since in-game Gus uses second-person to refer to the player, the ‘you’ used in the text box could also be refer to the player. Heck, it could refer to both, or even more than that. But since when Rewardo shows up he calls the player by name and congratulates them on inspecting however many trees, I’m a little more inclined to believe that the ‘you’ is refer to the player. It still fits in with things like a rock blocking the player’s path even though the player isn’t actually there, since Gus is being influenced by (controlled by? acting on orders of?) the player.
The fun part is when other pronouns get thrown in. Slips of words like I and we that now separate the speaker from the audience and give them more of a voice (so to speak). At this point I really doubt the speaker is Gus, and I’m getting the feeling that Gus isn’t even the speaker’s audience, so I basically rule him out on both ends right here. What really interests me is the use of the word we, which can be used generally or in a more personal sense. Which brings me to my next point.
I see a lot of trees and lampposts and rocks. I might not have seen every tree in the demo (I’m not the most meticulous) but I wander around looking for jokes all the time. And out of all the trees and other things I see, sometimes they have very distinct tones around them. Some are very happy, some are more sullen, and some related to each other. Looking at you, whoever was calling trees weird. But I was thinking about it, and since we know that there are some characters who are aware of the player, or at least the player’s existence, who’s to say that there’s not a whole group that has some influence, and just takes turns narrating the trees and objects as the player interacts with them? I mean, probably not, but it’s a fun idea to toss around.
Of course there are the trees like ‘THIS IS A TREE’ and ‘insert tree text here’, which are just nice and fun. Though, those are followed up by a ‘huh?’ or ‘wait, wait?’ afterwards, so that there is probably a meshing of whatever is going on with the speaker and some good old jokes directly related to it being a video game. Maybe some commented lines accidentally made their way on screen? I don’t know how this code is laid out.
Also, I’m probably taking this way too seriously, I know
I KNOW I KNOW its just that the writers do NOTHING for her like shes so??? boring??? what is her plot?? nothing. i want so desperately for her to be awesome but like she just kinda sits there with her kid, the most badass was when she stood between the gangs in season 1 and then it was like whered she go???
hello friends!!! i am going to be spending many, many (tbh way too many) hours on planes over the next month, so in order to stay sane i need some new tunes!! if anyone has any song/album/artist recs, please let me know! i’ll throw them all in a big spotify playlist that i’ll put up a link to so we can all share in the new music!
Good sir, I hope you’re doing okay, I absolutely adore your art and I really care about you! I love making art for you since your own art always makes me happy and brightens my day! Always anticipating your artworks! I had a lot of fun drawing these two, I hope you like it ! ♡
( I hope this looks fine, I don’t often use my colored pencils since they barely mark my page. So instead, I just used my pens which tend to bleed a little )
“I can still clearly feel the sensation I felt when I practiced barefoot. The feeling of my body and the floor becoming one was very impressive. I looked incredibly sexy while I practiced the stage, haha. I’m a person who concentrates into one thing when I fall in love with it. This applies to BTS promotion and also when I love someone. I think love is something that turns us stupid. When you fall in love, you become a fool who only knows one person, right?”
