Firefly Miraculous Theory

A recent post made by Thomas led me to a new theory. Thomas may have been joking or referring to something else, so this shouldn’t be taken as fact or close to accurate by any means, but I wanted to put this idea down.

In a conversation about fireflies, Thomas posted this:

It seems like an odd thing to say fireflies have nunchuks (unless referring to G.I. Joe characters Nunchuk and Firefly). However, theoretically, Thomas could also be meaning it as a reference to an upcoming character for Miraculous. It could be an akumatized villain, but I’m going to look at it as a Miraculous holder. What could be cooler than a Firefly Miraculous holder who has nunchuks as their weapon! Fireflies are also symbols for illumination, hope, energy, creativity, guidance, and inspiration. There is a lot of different theme options for the Firefly Miraculous, and I’m sure a firefly’s glowing ability would also be implemented.

Additionally, though, I wanted to link this up with the past news of the future unknown Miraculous holder. This is the reveal from Lindalee Rose:

The post makes it clear that the character is someone we already know getting a Miraculous that isn’t one of the seven on the top level of the Miraculous box. While it easily could’ve just been said out of excitement, “cowabunga” could also be referring something. Because the most common quote association with that word is to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle character Michelangelo, it’s possible to take it meaning as the holder will have the Turtle Miraculous. This can’t be true, though, because it contradicts the fact we know that the unknown Miraculous holder isn’t getting any of the presently known Miraculouses. Instead, what if “cowabunga” is related to Michelangelo’s weapon, nunchuks?

After all, nunchuks are often associated with Michelangelo among his other most notable details and traits. If Lindalee had exclaimed “Cowabunga!” in relation to anything she thought was similar to another thing, nunchuks would be a possible link.

If a nunchuk-wielding Firefly Miraculous holder who is someone we already know does appear, who could it be? I’ve already theorized before on this, but if I went off of the color appearance theory that characters like Chloé and Alya follow, Nathaniel, Lila, and Alix. It could easily be any character, though, with adults even being possible candidates. Additionally, fireflies may have nothing to do with this unknown Miraculous holder, while it doesn’t prevent a Firefly Miraculous from being in existence.

I have absolutely no idea if a Firefly Miraculous exists in the show and will appear, especially as a Miraculous that a known, loved-by-many-fans character will come to possess and use. At the least, though, a Firefly Miraculous holder whose weapon is nunchuks is such an excellent and brilliant idea that I hope it ends up being legitimate and showing up in Miraculous in some way.

When you already have several fics to write and then they decide to show an old movie you love on the television and you’re reminded of the fic you wanted to write based on it because it would make the perfect Marvey AU (it could also be worked to fit Johnlock, but it’s already perfect for Marvey) and, yeah, that.

Actual Things I Have Been Told About Applying To Residencies:

(In no particular order): 

“One day I will find what exactly DO schools did to surgeons. I can’t get a DO student into a surgery residency around here to save my life.” 

“Be nice to everyone you meet. No, I mean everyone. The second you walk off the plane you don’t know who knows who or who’s second cousin works at that residency program.”

“My residency program told me after the fact that they considered not accepting me because my girlfriend at the time was so annoying.” 

“At my residency, right before ranking, they put all the pictures of the applicants up on a powerpoint and we [as residents] had 60 seconds to write down what we thought of those people.”  

“I have no idea why there are so many residencies in Michigan. As if residency wasn’t miserable enough as is.” 

“Dinner the night before is part of the interview. I don’t care what they tell you. Some places will play tricks on you, trying to get you to drink more or acting flirty to see what you’re really like.” 

“If you come to our pre-interview dinner and order a $400 shot of bourbon, not only will I not accept you, I will kill you.” 

“The best way to tell if a program is malignant is the dinner. Do the residents know each other outside of the hospital? Do they know the names of each others kids? If the number one thing they complain about is the food in the cafeteria, it’s a decent place.” 

“Every single residency in New York is malignant. It’s the only place I didn’t rank.” 

“When you get that interview, you have to be confident. You have to walk in there and sell me on you. If the first question you ask is “what are you looking for in a resident?” then congratulations, you just killed your chance at this program.” 

“Be honest but be the best you you can be.” 

sometimes i think about how jake is a pretty competitive, driven character (the bet with amy, the halloween bets with holt, the eps from earlier seasons where he’s always trying to do his best + win + prove his worth), but even from the start he never truly let that get in the way of his support and care for the squad and esp for amy. 

as early on as season 1/operation broken feather he wrote that recommendation letter for her because at the end of the day, he had her back, he respected her as a partner and a friend, and he wanted her to succeed. and that same support continued all the way to season 4, his line “i’ve always known you were gonna be my boss” was like. so representative of their dynamic and his love/respect for her, and how nothing else really tops that. 

he let go of the bet of who’s going to move into the other’s place because he cared about her more than winning it. when amy won halloween III even when he almost got in over his head, he was apologetic to her, then proud and happy to crown her the queen of the 99. 

esp. important i think seeing as he’s the main male lead of a comedy show in a central pairing/relationship, and he has never once felt truly threatened by her accomplishments, and never once genuinely put his own competitiveness or pride before her wellbeing. their relationship has never fallen to the “man unhealthily jealous/threatened by his girlfriend/wife’s accomplishments” or other countless similar tropes. he loves her and at the end of the day that’s what matters to him the most. and he knows she’ll make a great sergeant and we all know he’s going to be with her every step of that path. 

Homestuck Smash Bros Headcanons

•Karkat would play dark sonic every single time because he’s black, spiky, and looks cool. He has no other reason. Karkat is not even good at this game, he loses first nearly every single time and it is entirely because he goes into the speedy ball and rolls off the stage immediately. He complains loudly every time this happens but refuses to play any other character.
•Dave aggressively mains as Zero Suit Samus, at first to be ironic because haha it’s a chick that looks like a Barbie, but he very quickly realizes that she’s a badass character and her whip is sick as fuck. He also targets Karkat almost exclusively just to hear him complain, Dave would be pretty good if he actually took it seriously though.
•Rose and Kanaya both play as Zelda, but Rose only plays as her usual form and Kanaya only plays as Sheik. Rose likes Zelda for her magical abilities, whereas Kanaya admires her for her impeccable fashion sense. It goes without saying that Rose makes her purple and Kanaya switches her to green.
•Jade plays as Olimar for no other reason than “he’s so cute!! And look at his little radish friends!!” But she completely demolishes in like, every single round. Everyone is tired of it. Olimar has no attacks how is she winning.
•John plays as (blue) Kirby because he loves dropping down on ppl as a brick or smashing them with that big ass hammer, mostly he goofs around with Dave to make a bunch of wackass stages that make it impossible to win in any conclusive way, including The Box™, a stage completely boxed in making it impossible to fly off once you get enough damage. They play for hours in one round, their damage is 999%, every hit sends them ricocheting from wall to wall endlessly.
•Additionally, when Jane plays she will fight John for the right to play blue Kirby because 1) he’s blue fuck you john and 2) his smash ball power is literally throwing all the other characters into a cooking pot if you think Jane will not bring it hard as hell you can eat my ass.
•Roxy plays as jigglypuff and makes it to the end of battles because she sustains literally zero damage. She spends all the time avoiding the fight by floating around in the air and singing her enemies to sleep if they get too close. Once it gets down to her and one other person tho she starts hitting buttons randomly and yelling and sitting on them while they’re playing just to do anything to keep them from winning.
•Callie doesn’t play very much, but when she does it as Toon Link because he’s small and green just like her!! And he looks like one of her drawings how cute!! Mostly though she’s perfectly content to just watch Roxy play and egg her on once she starts screeching.
•Dirk switches between Marth, bc of the swordplay, and Lucario, bc he’s a huge fucking furry. Both characters are actually really good and any game that has him, Dave, and Jade in it lasts literally forever because they’re all so good. Dirk gets v quiet while playing because he’s in The Zone.
•Jake is OK, but he’s far from on par w/ the others just because he’s not used to video games that have controllers as opposed to VR and obviously he would prefer good ol’ fashioned fisticuffs!! But when he does play it’s with Pit because of the annoying ass “hyahh!!” the character makes every time he attacks, “it shows he’s got real gumption!”
•Terezi plays as bright red yoshi and just keeps eating ppl. Just, swallowing them and putting them in eggs. She doesn’t do any fighting she just eats ppl and turns them into eggs, cackling the entire time and high-fiving Dave every time she lays another egg.
•SOLLUX IS NOT ALLOWED TO PLAY. every time they’re talking about smash and sollux walks in it goes DEAD SILENT. “Hey whatcha guys talking about” and whatever the first excuse is everyone is forced to go with it, Dave of course takes full advantage of this, “oh actually-” and if he finished the sentence before Karkat fucking tackles him then everyone is gonna have a bad time. But it’s because they all know Sollux will completely grasp the game within five seconds of just watching one round, crush everyone immediately and people actually enjoy when the rounds actually last longer than half a minute.

Happy Father’s Day!

they’re dressed as lions bc they’re the pride of the family
