because sans was enough of a challenge without something wrapped around his head


Hypothetical Handplates scenario in which Sans realizes he can teach himself Common.

(Ugh, tumblr is making them blurry for some reason so I guess full-view if you want the not-blurry version??)

Convoluted explanation incoming. Handplates is an Undertale fancomic by @zarla-s and if you like Papyrus and Sans, go read it, is good stuff. So I guess this is an AU fancomic of an AU fancomic? I dunno, the idea wouldn’t leave my brain until I did something with it. So. Zarla did a Christmas doodle where Gaster gave the boys a box of ginger cookies that had the word COOKIES on the side in big letters, and because my job gives me way too much time to think about random stuff, I realized something.

In Handplates, Gaster taught the bros to read and write Wingdings but deliberately did not teach them monster Common (ie: English) so they can’t read his nametag or anything. Thing is, Wingdings is a 1:1 substitution cipher for English. Every Wingdings symbol exactly equals an English letter; it’s not a different language, just a different set of pictures. As somebody who has taught herself a fair number of substitution ciphers, there are a few things you look for when you’re trying to translate a code and you don’t have a key in front of you. Most notably, single-letter words (in English they will usually be A or I) or double letters next to each other. Like the OO in “COOKIES”.

Sans is smart. Gaster has fed them junk food before and odds are good Sans knows how to spell “COOKIES”. The word is on the box in huge letters and Gaster just said it out loud, so it is fresh in Sans’ mind. That double-O is a huge tip-off. He would put it together that the word on the front of the box matches what’s inside. Once you figure out a few of the letters, it becomes steadily easier to decode the rest.

I feel like Gaster exposes the boys to enough Common (the nametag, food wrappers, computer monitors, the books Sans sits on) that Sans could pick it up with a proper starting point. Papyrus probably not, because he had a hard enough time with Wingdings, but Sans is eager for any opportunity to undermine Gaster and I’m sure he’d jump at the chance. In this comic he elects not to tell Papyrus, though. He doesn’t know Gaster has cameras in the cell (or even what a camera is) but he’s figured out that Gaster can spy on them somehow, and the last time Gaster caught them learning something he didn’t like, Papyrus got the ever-loving hell beat out of him. So Sans keeps quiet about it for now. And thus starts the long-standing tradition of keeping important secrets from his brother.

On the technical side, it took me a freakin’ week to sketch and outline this whole thing. Coloring and shading only took me like a day. In the meantime Zarla actually kinda addressed the cookie comic, but this was almost done by then so oh well. I’m finding my poses and proportions turn out a LOT better when I’m doodling skeletons, like what, drawing basic anatomy will make you better at anatomy, you don’t say?? A lot of this was a self-challenge to see if I could imitate Zarla’s art style, and I referenced previous Handplates comics a lot for the backgrounds and Sans’ face. Full disclosure: Gaster’s pose up there is basically copied from Zarla’s original comic because I was rushing through to get on to the actual meat of the story. He’s just here for setup. I had fun trying to figure out how to do his Lost Soul head though. Also, I hate Papyrus’ face from the front. Also also, it was tricky trying to convey “mentally translating an unknown alphabet into a known one” when pretty much everyone who sees this comic is already familiar with the “unknown” one and not the “known” one, but I think I pulled it off. 

TL;DR- I imitated somebody else’s style to do an AU of an AU; I am not Zarla; Zarla is the creator of Handplates and also Gaster’s pose in the first panel; I like ciphers too much and also I gave the cookies icing because that is the only kind of ginger cookie I know.

anonymous asked:

So I'm new to your blog and I love it so much and I saw your ask with tiny smol s/o that has a fierce side and I was wondering if you could do the same thing but with asahi, noya, semi, tendou, and yaku. I love them all so much it makes me almost cry at times. Anyways I hope that you've had a great day and have been smiling.

OH, oh! I actually almost forgot about that one! Those were so much fun to write and I’m glad you enjoyed them so much to request more characters with the scenario!

And, um, I realized just now that this could technically apply to two different asks that I had done before (one a scenario and another a headcanon). So… I assumed it was the headcanon one in which the significant other can just OWN anyone. (I only came to this assumed conclusion before 1) it has more notes and 2) you used the words ‘fierce’, Anon, which is a term used in the OP). Um, sorry if it’s wrong?

Enjoy, Anon!

Asumane Asahi

  • So, poor Asahi surely gets his fair share of people trying to pick fights with him, which, he’s a big guy and there are some guys out there that feel they need to prove themselves. But while he’s trying to talk them down because he’s a giant teddy bear and won’t hurt anyone, his adorably tiny significant other is stepping forward.
    • Like, not this boy is really panicked. Not because he doesn’t think that they can handle themselves - he knew they can - but that I just don’t headcanon him doing well around violence. He’s a total pacifist (unless he’s smacking a ball) and the last thing he wants is for his significant other to fight.
    • But the dudes not backing down. In fact, his taunting probably gets worse with Asahi using his tiny date to hide behind and yadda yadda– BAM. No more words are coming out because this guy is just STUNNED. Was his face against the sidewalk?
  • Aw, and they just take Asahi’s hand and start to walk away while he’s giving small apologies to the bully. Probably telling him that he should put ice of that so it doesn’t get swollen or other self-care things like that. The hype ends and they go back to their perfect date as though it was never interrupted!

Nishinoya Yuu

  • i get the feeling that this whole thing would start because Noya would be bragging loudly about how his significant other can take down ANYBODY. And it’s not like they originally questioned his about it, he just turned around and was like “my boyfriend/girlfriend can kick all your guys asses!” and there was no turning back.
  • While it’s probably something most people just chuckle at without even thinking about it, there’s always that one asshole who decides to take someone up on a dumb challenge. So, it’s only halfway surprising when they end up running into someone out in the parking lot that Noya starts whooping and hollering (maybe he’s a little drunk in this headcanon? Maybe I’m a little drunk in this headcanon?)
    • But as soon as that guy makes any kind of move towards them that’s about how quickly it takes for this small one to end it. With their chest pressed into the ground and a knee pressed into their back, they’re down and Noya’s shouting ‘I told you so’s into the night.
  • He one hundred percent treats them to whatever they want that night. Ice cream, chocolate, pizza, something homemade. Doesn’t matter, they get it. Noya totally just thinks that they’re awesome in every way and always wants to show them off to the rest of the world.

Semi Eita

  • Like, I see them all being out in a group outing, right? And it’s just something that casually came up in conversation which everyone is pretty interested in. Before long Reon or someone is like “how about you show us some moves then?” and they’re all “Naw, it should only be used in self-defense.”
    • BUT THEN LIKE Tendou finally shows up and goes to put his hands on their shoulders and everyone is getting a demonstration they had no idea they should’ve been anticipating. Tendou’s staring up at them with this startled expression and they’ve got their hands over their mouth and delivering apologies.
  • Everyone is fine and okay, but they just reacted on instinct, something that Semi tells them they shouldn’t be sorry about. Plus, Tendou shouldn’t have been sneaking up behind them anyway. Before long, they’re back to their original plans.
    • Lol, the next time they’re at practice or something, Tendou totally tries to get Goshiki to wonder over and sneak up behind them. Semi gets mad and makes hm run laps for trying to get such a thing started during practice.

Tendou Satori

  • I think that this boy’s first experience with their moves would actually be on one of their first dates. They’d be out strolling through the park and some dude is giving them a hard time, right, and Tendou’s all worried because they’re still in that phase of getting to know each other and he doesn’t want them to think that he’s scary.
  • But just when he’s about to just forget about his worries and explain later, they’re already taking care of it, and the guy is on the ground with his hands gripping at his head. He stares and stares and stares before just wrapping his arms around them and kissing them right there.
    • Omg, like, what if that was their first kiss? And this guy beneath them just groans and is all like ‘get a room, ouch…” before they start to stroll off again with their fingers laced together. Talk about a perfect date, yeah?
    • Oh, imagine they run into that guy again on another date, right? And it ends up becoming this really awkward stare off. Cause they’re not going to do anything unless he does, but he’s not dumb enough to do anything. In the end, it’s Tendou being his guess monster self that sends the guy running!

Yaku Morisuke

  • So, lol, I see this being something that actually starts when Yaku’s not there. Maybe they show up to his practice before he shows up and Kuroo is actually the one to start it. Being the provoker he is, he’s making this bet with Lev that the tall man can’t beatYaku’s small significant other. “But Kuroo-san, that’s unfair. I’d destroy them.”
    • It’s Yaku that hears that though and instantly wants to prove him wrong. With the bet settled and the entire team of Nekoma’s money riding on their back, the fight began. Let’s just say it take very long for it to end.
  • It’s totally one of those situations of David and Goliath and they use Lev’s own size against him, right? Next thing anyone knows Lev is falling into the cart of volleyballs with laughter following him from his teammates along the way.
  • Lev wins no money and has to buy them snacks after practice, while Yaku’s giving them sweet cheek kisses for doing such a good job. Oh, and Kuroo recorded the whole thing and added a music reel to it, everyone puts it on blast.
My Alpha

Summary:   Akaashi is the most desired omega in the Fukurodani race. The fact that he already has a mate doesn’t seem to make a difference to his suitors. Then again, his mate is Bokuto Koutarou. When has anyone took his alpha seriously?

Pairings:  BokuAka / BokutoxAkaashi

Genre: Romance, Shounen-ai

Rating: T

Author: Canna / Yellowcanna

Status: Complete (One shot)

In the Fukuroudani race, the beauty of omegas is made up of three main components.

Strength, grace, and most important of all, intelligence.  

Akaashi Keiji is the omega who has it all.

At first glance the omega always appears plain without any special features that make him stand out. However, after the first few glances, alphas would always found themselves attracted to the dark haired boy who was in fact radiating with beauty. He was like an unpolished gem that needed to be inspected closely in order to understand the true value.

Many people who saw Akaashi would notice his expressionless face first. His brows were thick with unappealing half-lidded eyes that always portray a sense of tiredness. But if looked closer, anyone would see that it wasn’t the case at all. His brows are thick, but it gives him a sharpness that matches his narrow eyes, reflecting his frightening acute observation ability fitting for a bird of prey. He rarely expresses any emotions, but when he does, it was like the feeling of opening a treasure chest. The prize inside was beyond anything anyone could imagine, and the satisfaction of knowing they are the one who unlocked that was an indescribable feeling between joy and pride.

Intelligence was something the dark haired omega was gifted with at birth. He was the smartest of his school, always standing at the very top no matter what subject it was. Like that of an owl, Akaashi moved fluidly and soundlessly with trained precision that would take other omegas years of practice to achieve. He was graceful no matter what he was doing and just that alone, every omega looked to him as their idol.

Many alphas first saw the raven as an easy prey as eighty percent of omegas are proven to be. With his intelligence and grace, no one had expected the omega to be able fight. That was quickly changed the moment an alpha tried to make the omega submit in the middle of the school yard for all to see.

That alpha was crushed within seconds.

yukimura seiichi :: neural artist

… This was supposed to be like, a five tweet thread on twitter, but it’s 1.9k words now, so I guess it’s a drabble of sorts?

Yukimura Seiichi was a late bloomer. His sensory manipulation slowly manifests through his ruthlessness in tennis, his desire to win through the complete destruction of his opponents. Initially, he can’t control it. Prior to its manifestation, Seiichi was a Class IV flower child who brought colorful paintings to life on his white walls. Even reaching Class IV was a testament to his mastery of self. When he was a toddler, doctors had predicted he would peak at Class III in high school. It was rare to only have a primary ability, and most, if not all, people without secondary abilities were destined to lives of mediocrity. Yukimura Seiichi did not do mediocrity, and he swore those doctors would eat their words one day.
