I'm thinking, Descole with his magnificent cape, Luke tucked under his right arm like Descole is kidnapping him, Flora by his left side, and Layton in the background. Just to make it clear, Descole's cape is all-encompassing, so both Luke, Descole and Flora (NOT LAYTON) are shrouded under it, and the cape is like billowing outways behind him (him being Descole). Make sense? (I TOLD YOU IT WAS A CHALLENGE!!)
BADA BOOM BADA BING
What a fine morning to kidnap babysit your brother’s kids in a random field outside of London
How I feel about this character: I was genuinely glad he survived AL, and that surprised me because he’s pretty awful prior to that. But, y’know, I think he’s probably suffered enough.
All the people I ship romantically with this character: ………nobody?
My non-romantic OTP for this character: Probably Raymond AKA Unofficial Dad. I also have fun sometimes imagining what it would take to get Descole and Luke semi-voluntarily cooperating. (”I saved your life that one time!” “You kidnapped my mum!” …I said voluntary, not congenial. (; )
My unpopular opinion about this character: *glances up and down at all the blank OTP slots* …also, I got slammed once for saying I thought he was bisexual in a chat room that overwhelmingly hc’d him as gay.
One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon: Give the poor man better foreshadowing! And it would have been fun, too, if LMJ had given us a hint about what he’s up to these days.
@nowhere-dawn-death-phan: Ha! :) Oh boy. Before I saw Eternal Diva, I assumed it was pronounced in French (forgive the stupid way to write the pronounciation): Des-coal. I took French in high school, and newsflash Jean buddy, if you want your last name to be pronounced Des-co-lay, you have to put an accent over the last E. It would be Descolé.
Anyway, I pronounce it “Des-co-lay” now. That jerk. He’s not even French.
There’s been a lot of controversy about liking Clive recently, so I thought I’d throw my two cents in. Please feel free to reply, but please let’s keep it like the last Emmy post, where it was more like a ‘debate’ and less like an argument. The last thing I want to do is widen a rift in the a fandom. I just want to discuss a few things. I hope that’s ok. If this post does upset people, I promise I’ll delete it.
Long story short, it’s perfectly fine to hate Clive, and hope he never gets released from prison. But please be aware that there are other villains deserving of your distaste for similar reasons. Share the distaste, guys!
fav character: Emmy, for sure. Luke is probably a close second. :)
least favourite character: In a love-to-hate sense, Bronev. I’m probably never going to forgive him for how sad Emmy gets post-reveal, and he’s a flipping terrible parent figure (for her and for his biological sons!).
For simple annoyance factor, though, Puzzlette. (I’m not too fond of Beasley, either. I think hearing sudden voiced dialogue every time you check the puzzle shack put me off of both of them; I find it very jarring.)
otp: Hershel/Claire. *shrugs* They make each other so happy.
brotp: Luke and Emmy are my favorite puzzle siblings forever and ever. I would also love to see Emmy and Flora being puzzle sisters.
notp: Several, but let’s go with Emmy/Descole. I love the idea that they’d be snarky kinda-friends if they crossed paths post-AL, but shipping is super squicky for me at best.
