So I know like 90% of the fandom is against black paladin Keith and like for the most part, I’m kinda iffy about it myself. But hear me out. Black paladin Keith… whose right-hand man is Lance. Lance acts as an advisor of sorts, whom Keith trusts, no questions asked. If Shiro isn’t going to listen to Lance, Keith will. Keith already knows Lance is capable and takes the mission seriously (even though he seems to take little else seriously. That’s not to say he isn’t serious, just he copes differently). They have already experienced first hand that working together yields success. And already we can see that when it gets down the nitty gritty, they fall into a harmonious efficiency, despite the air of competitiveness between them. Keith is the drive and the passion and Lance, the patience and positivity. Together they make an unstoppable force. A good team, if you will.
In this scene, we have embarrassed outrage covering up a
true motive, honesty so misleading that it encourages the worst interpretation
possible, blatant lying, and a thunderstruck realization that this conversation
has somehow gone very badly, but not badly enough to be worth clearing things
By golly, it’s glorious.
I love this scene and everything it chooses to be. Ymir
argues for Krista’s safety. Kristoria notices and calls her on it. Ymir
strongly objects. Kristoria rightfully points out that if she’s wrong, Ymir has
no reason to stick around. Then self-esteem issues the size of Wall Maria (and
about as functional) pick up and Kristoria asks the direct question: Is Ymir
bothering with her because of her family?
Yes, of course she is.
But don’t worry, it’s not like, a service thing; Ymir’s
exactly where she wants to be.
The beauty of it is that
Ymir is attached to Kristoria because
of her family. She joins the army looking for someone who’s known the exact
same pain she has, and she finds Krista. Krista, who never would have existed
without her wreck of a family.
Everything Kristoria has lived through calls Ymir to her, and
that’s so much easier to say than that Ymir cares for everything she is.
But that isn’t what’s communicated. On Kristoria’s end, all
she hears is that the person closest to her is only sticking around because of
her blood. It’s entirely by choice, but she isn’t there because she likes her
So Krista comes out to play, and lies about how okay that is
with a smile.
Now for Ymir to feel really guilty and offer any kind of clarification to make things better never.
We’ve all heard about Maid Sakuya— but have you ever thought… he could be—– Butler Sakuya?! (Well aside from the merch I mean, but you get my point).
Hihihihiiiii… First up for my post-hospital works would be none other than the funnest-to-draw-hair dude Sakuya! Playing with his hair is kinda fun, but really gotta maintain that curl, ahoge, and left-side-only spikes. xDDD
Plus my tongue fetish is at it again. >v>
