both not really fitting in their worlds

On Shinso and Aizawa

No, this is not a shipping post.

So I have many feels about episode 20 of Boku no Hero, but one of the things I would like to talk about here, is the relationship between Shinso and Aizawa.

We see that Shinso has made it to the duel phase of the Special Olympics. And while his easily excitable friend is shouting about how weird it is that Shinso made it this far, Aizawa is basically sitting there going “I TOLD you guys.”
To Aizawa, the entrance exam was bullshit, because it gave a huge advantage to people with physical quirks. And Aizawa, of all people, should know this.
I mean. A young Aizawa wouldn’t have made it through that entrance exam.

Aizawa is a hero through and through. He has the heart of one. This man pitted himself against an overwhelming amount of villains, knowing he probably wasn’t going to make it. He literally put his own body between a coordinated surprise attack and his students in the hopes of giving them time to flee.
And he would not have been able to enter UA if he was their age.
His quirk is to shut off other quirks.
It wouldn’t have worked against the robots of that year’s exam.

Part of what makes the hero business harder for Aizawa than for, say, Endeavour or All Might is that Aizawa’s quirk is very specialised, and there’s nothing physical about it. He basically had to make up a new martial art using the power of scarves in order to also have a physical component.
There’s a reason that Aizawa is always telling his students not to be a one trick pony and that’s because he had to learn not to be one in order to even qualify as a decent hero. And he knows not everyone has to struggle that hard.
When you have a powerful physical quirk, it’s easy to believe that it will be enough.

So it’s not difficult to imagine that Aizawa recognizes a younger version of himself in Shinso. This is a kid with a Super Powerful quirk, who has some serious trouble finding the right little slot to fit in at UA. 
Because that school is not adapted to accommodate his strengths and overcome his specific weaknesses.

There’s a panel in the later chapters where Aizawa is talking to Shinsho and you kinda feel like they could bond. These two have a lot in common, after all. They both have some sleep schedule issues, judging by the bags under their eyes, they both like cats and they share a common perspective on the world of quirks.
We don’t really know Aizawa’s background (yet), but it wouldn’t surprise me if he really, truly gets what drives Shinso.
And honestly, I hope he starts mentoring him. Because Shinso deservers better.

Sometimes it’s still so, so hard to believe that we became these people that are worlds away from each other now. Hard to believe that you were everything, you know? You had me at night and in the morning and every hour in between.  It’s hard to love someone after they’ve shown you parts of themselves that don’t really fit with the rest of the picture that you’ve made for yourself, you know? Like, God, you really really hurt me but you’ve also made me so happy and how can you be both of those people at once? Where does it all fit? You made me question so much. You made me question all your love and every touch and the point is, really, that you can blame me for the distance and the timing all you want, but you’re still the one who turned themselves into a stranger. You’re still the one who made me wonder why I even wanted to stay at all. 

rising signs often represent the lenses with which we see the world through soooo yeah. this is very archetypal so take that into consideration.

aries rising lenses- these rising signs have two, highly contrasting and opposite lenses (they see things in black and white- no grey). the colors are enhanced and bright, but opposite on either side. there’s a reddish tint on both of the lenses however, and they tend to focus on the positive and exciting aspects of life.

taurus rising lenses- taurus rising lenses help the person see the beauty in everything. they’re a green tint, and pinks are enhanced. they exude a sense of calmness and tranquility. these lenses don’t hide the bad however, just focuses on the beautiful.

gemini rising lenses- these lenses are yellow tinted, and are also transition lenses. each setting the gemini rising goes to, their view changes. these lenses help them attain all the knowledge the world has to offer. changeable, fluid, and youthful.

cancer rising lenses- cancer risings have blue lenses, a somber and soulful view of the world. the lenses help them see the souls of others and empathize deeply. tend to accentuate their large, moony, eyes. sees the world in emotions.

leo rising lenses- orange and golden lenses allow the leo rising to exude confidence and elegance. see the world as a place to perform, everyone around them being an audience member. sunsets and bright lights are enhanced.

virgo risings lenses- grey/blue toned lenses. a sobering and realistic view of the world, with an eye for the pain that exists all around them. stands out to only those who choose to see them. sees the world as a responsibility yet also a library.

libra risings lenses- rose tinted glasses quite literally. this rising gives the ability to exude positivity, kindness, and friendliness. ignores and escapes the reality of the world. similar to the taurus rising, focuses on the beautiful.

scorpio rising lenses - deep, purple tinted lenses. sees the world intensely and passionately, with the darker side of life enhanced. tends to see only the harsher side of the world, all the tragedy that exists. exudes mystery.

sagittarius rising lenses- bright green tinted lenses. this allows the sagittarius rising to see every possibility. optimism, luck, and friends are often acquired. they see the world in every variation and in all of its’ diversity. notices and appreciates culture.

capricorn rising lenses- black and white lenses. these make the capricorn rising think they are seeing the world how it really is, but in fact is a highly pessimistic view. exudes restriction, elegance, and wisdom. sharp criticism and ambition.

aquarius rising lenses- neon blue lenses. sees all of humanity with their lenses, and acts as a messenger to the people, bringing knowledge and information at lightning speed. embodies electricity, friendliness, and eccentricity

pisces rising lenses- rainbow lenses. in each setting, a certain color can be presented as they are mutable and fluid, to fit whatever situation they’re in. sees the world in every possible way. both exudes naivety and wisdom.

For this to work Neil should both be a little shit and have exy balls with him at all times, so it seems pretty reasonable to me

Based on this

Also imagine Nicky shouting “Kinky!” in the bg for extra nonsense

Okay, I fully understand everyone’s excitement over the ring-exchange and engagement, but please don’t mock or dismiss Yuuri calling it a “lucky charm”. 

Not only were those his honest and sincere feelings, but omamori are more than mere “lucky charms”, they’re a huge part of Japanese culture, and Japanese religion, with very profound meaning, so mocking that is actually incredibly rude, and highly culturally insensitive.

Traditionally, Japanese omamori look like this

and can be bought at most shrines and temples in Japan. I’d actually say they’re closer to “prayers” than “lucky charms”, really, in their intent, though that doesn’t quite fit, either. But when you know that the most common omamori are for things like safety in traffic, doing well in school, having romantic encounters, and fertility/safely born children (used both by couples who want kids, and expecting mothers hoping for no complications with their pregnancy), you probably see what I mean.

The word omamori translates roughly to protector/protection/protective charm, and are based on the animistic Shinto world view. The ones you get at shrines are part supplication that the enshrined deity will bless and protect you, and part a… hmm, almost a signal beacon? so said deity can find you, to know that you’re someone under their protection. And also part comfort for the carrier, that they’re not alone, that they’ve got someone on their side. 

But it’s not just “official” deities that are considered to have protective powers. Your ancestors are also seen sort of as guardian spirits protecting their family line (common theme in East Asian religions - Mulan, anyone? - at least, and I think also in all animistic religions, though that’s not my area of expertise), and even such ambiguous things as strong emotions are seen to have protective and blessing properties, especially love and affection.

For this reason, a lot of people will use mementos or objects of sentimental value as omamori. Either because it reminds them of a particular person or situation or emotion, or because they see some kind of link between that particular object and whatever they seek blessings for/protection against.

The important part for Yuuri, and why he bought that ring, is less that it’s a wedding ring, and more that it’s a gold ring. Yes, emphasis on both gold and ring.

The gold part is obvious, because the blessing he wants is help in getting a gold medal. It’s a resonance/like-brings-like thing.

The ring part is more obscure, but I’ll try to explain it.

One of the most basic and important parts of Japanese culture and society is the idea of 縁 (en). If you look it up in a Japanese-English dictionary, you get words like fate, destiny, chance, a relationship, a connection, a bond, an affinity, and while those are all ways to translate the word, depending on context, they don’t really explain the concept. En is the meeting of two or more things/beings that leaves a lasting connection or bond.

You might say you don’t have en with money to indicate that you can never seem to amass any wealth. It’s less you’ve got no luck with money, but more that you and money were never meant to be. You might earn it, but it still doesn’t stick around, somehow. An omamori for romance is called an enmusubi, or a “tier of en/bonds”, in this case referring to interpersonal relationships.

If you’re saying goodbye to someone you don’t know whether you’ll ever see again, you might express a wish that you’ll have en, and be able to meet again.

Now, I’ve mentioned in previous posts that the Japanese love homonyms and word associations. This is even more true for en, because it’s so important to them. Like in the example of a farewell, you might give someone a five yen coin, because five yen is go-en (五円), and when speaking of en with an honorific, that’s also go-en (ご縁). It’s a physical manifestation of your wish to have en with them. This is also why five yen coins are generally considered the best coins to give as offerings when you pray for something, despite their low value, because it indicates a hope for en with your wish.

Okay, getting to the point now: Another homonym (well, technically the same one, but different usage) for en is the word for circle or round. And because that’s basically what a ring is, rings are often used as a metaphor for, or an expression of a wish for en. So rings generally have a more profound level of meaning in Japanese.

It’s a gold ring because Yuuri wishes to have en with gold medals. He gives it to Victor because he wishes to have en with him.

He spent the whole day looking for something. He said he’d desperately wanted an omamori for a long time. He’s embarrassed, because yes, it’s a goddamn wedding ring, and he’s very aware of that, and giving rings to someone, period, is not something a Japanese person does lightly. It’s a very meaningful act, and this omamori is very important to Yuuri, so going “lol, lucky charm, yeah right” is incredibly disrespectful.

Y’all gotta fucking read In Other Lands by Sarah Rees Brennan. 

Sometimes it’s not the kid you expect who falls through to magicland, sometimes it’s … Elliot. He’s grumpy, nerdy, and appalled by both the dearth of technology and the levels of fitness involved in swinging swords around. He’s a little enchanted by the elves and mermaids. Despite his aversion to war, work, and most people (human or otherwise) he finds that two unlikely ideas, friendship and world peace, may actually be possible.

THESE KIDS NEED HUGS AND RESPECT

Fluffy One Shots

Fics to make you smile

Sorted by length, will be updated as I find more fics

❤ For Effort - When Harry Styles lets his team down during gym class, resulting everyone having to run laps, he expects the worst. But the backlash never comes.Harry’s crush, Louis Tomlinson, may or may not have something to do with that. (one shot, 2k)

Whisk You Away - “Okay, so you met your high school crush, Harry Stills–” “Styles.” “Not for long,” Niall said in a sing-song tone, and Louis threw a chip at his face. It landed on top of his head. Niall grabbed it and put it in his mouth. “Anyway, so he is getting married tomorrow and invites you to help him bake a cake.” “Mhmm.” “And you accept. You can’t bake. And you can’t even make pancakes…Bravo.” Or…Louis is quick at assuming the worst, only for the best thing to happen.  (one shot, 2k)

The Weirdest Bloody Ice Cream Shop - Harry made eye contact with Lou and noticed his eyes were very blue. “Well…” Harry started. “Because you have the same name as this shop. It’s a shop rule that everyone named Lou gets free fro-yo.” Lou’s lips turned up very slightly at each end. He was rather pretty when he wasn’t yelling at Harry. “Neat rule,” Lou said. “Too bad my name is Louis.” And with that Louis (not Lou) shoved a £10 note in the tip jar and walked out of Lou’s Frozen Yoghurt with his probable sister. Probably forever. Harry sighed and looked at his watch. He had two hours left before he could close up, and, as it would turn out, he thought about the cute, angry boy named Louis for most of them. OR the frozen yoghurt au in which harry accidentally accuses louis of wanting to date a 5 year old and louis keeps calling frozen yoghurt ice cream (one shot, 3k)

Crush on My Croissant - Every morning at 6:50am the most attractive man in the world walks into Harry’s bakery and orders a chocolate croissant. What happens when Harry finally decides it’s time to take things to the next level? (one shot, 3k, part of a small series)

took my heart upon a one way trip - in which, louis needs help with a poetry assignment and harry can’t stop staring at the pretty boy who walked into his bookshop. the other three are in there too. (one shot, 4k)

Only Reason - “We are so lucky to have with us one of the leading experts on beekeeping in the modern age, Dr. Louis Draper.”
No. No, no, no…
“I know I speak for many of us when I say that this man’s books have guided our practice, or helped us get started,” Harry continued, and Louis watched as the crowd nodded their heads in agreement.
Oh shit. No. What? No.
But then Harry was gesturing towards him, saying “Dr. Draper?” into the microphone, the crowd was applauding, and Louis found himself walking up the stairs to the stage. Or, Louis is most definitely smitten with Harry from the second he sees him, but he is also most definitely not the world’s foremost expert on beekeeping. He decides to roll with it anyway
.  (one shot, 5k)

I made a map of your stars - Harry does not have a crush on Louis Tomlinson. Yes, Louis is very pretty and funny, and Harry may have had more than a few inappropriate thoughts about him, but he certainly doesn’t like him. (Except for the fact that he totally does.)

or, Harry is the shy boy in the back of the class that no one really notices. Louis is the loud, outgoing football player that everybody likes.
 (one shot, 5k)

you make my whole world feel right when it’s wrong - “Curly?” Louis says, stepping into Harry’s sight. “You okay?”
Harry looks up from where he has two things in his hands, a thick winter coat sized for a newborn, and a sweatshirt fitting a grown man such as himself. He looks up at Louis, stricken, and holds them out for him to see. “They’re the same price,” he says. “They’re both forty dollars! Forty dollars for such little material.” (or, Harry is pregnant and stops at the mall to buy cheap baby clothes. Louis has extra money from working a long shift, and he can’t think of a better way to spend it than on him.)  
(one shot, 6k)

come on, jump out at me - Harry is a witch from a long line of power, an ancient line that’s one of the strongest left alive in their hemisphere. He can cast spells without a word if need be, fly on a broomstick, and has a black cat (a kitten, really) named Felix that is his animal familiar. He can shape galaxies in his cupped hands and can destroy them just as easily. He can choose exactly how to use his power, for encouragement and support, or for more nefarious causes if he wishes to. And as fate would have it, he’s scared of haunted houses. (Harry is a witch who carries around a stuffed pumpkin, Louis is a vampire with too much time on his hands, and their best mates Zayn & Niall aren’t exactly what they seem…)  (one shot, 7k, part of a continuing and very good series )

Worth a Thousand Words - “Look, I’m learning some new stuff!” My name is Louis. My favorite color is green. I like movies. Do you know sign language?Harry huffed grumpily. Why are you learning sign language? “Because, I want to be able to talk to you.” Louis looked small, gripping tightly at the steering wheel. Why?    You’re my friend. Louis signed shakily, having to try it a few times before getting it right. And well, Harry just snapped. We’re not friends. I don’t know what makes you think that we’re okay but we’re not. You stopped being my friend once you found out that I went deaf. I don’t know if this is your way of ‘making up for it’ or if you think that hanging out with the deaf guy and learning a bit of sign language is your ‘kind deed’ to the world but I don’t want to be your charity case and I don’t want to be your friend.
or Harry went deaf at 5 years old and Louis just wants the chance be heard. (one shot, 7k, bit of angst but mostly fluff)

Tentatively - The whole university was anxiously waiting for the final weeks of the semester to wrap up, the taste of the summer already hanging sweetly and tempting in the air. Harry was right there in the thick of it all, getting distracted by the very same feline-born he had been crushing on ever since the beginning of uni. Harry had absolutely no plans to ever approach the boy. Ever.
But clearly the Universe (or the boy) wasn’t a fan of Harry having any control over his own damn life. -Or, Louis is a feline-born, and Harry’s big dumb crush on him is so massive he doesn’t know what to do with himself.
(one shot, 8k)

Love Is a Kitten from Hell - Louis Tomlinson passes himself off as an arrogant prick at his new school to hide the fact that he’s terrified of being bullied again. Just when he’s getting tired of putting up walls, he finds himself in a local pet shop where he finds a sanctuary playing with the kittens in the front window. Harry Styles is the popular football player who works at the pet shop, secretly watching the boy he thought was utterly unlikable prove him wrong. Partnered together for a class project, Harry gets more and more hints that Louis is actually someone worth getting to know. But the real question is, will Louis let Harry in? (one shot, 8k)

When the Lion Met the Fawn - Maybe lions are meant to hunt fawns, but in this case was the fawn who hunted the lion. (Or the one where Louis Tomlinson is a natural fighter without a fight and Harry Styles is a fawn hybrid too scared to stay but even more scared to run away. He gives Louis a reason to fight for)  (one shot, 9k)

but he can’t be what you need (if he’s eighteen) - “I need you to do something for me.” Harry said, pinching his bottom lip between his thumb and forefinger. “It seems like you’re asking me to kill for you, H.” Louis laughed nervously. “It’s nothing that drastic, I promise. It’s just. I don’t think it’s a secret that I’m not a.. normal eighteen year old.” Louis furrowed his eyebrows at that, narrowing his eyes at the younger boy. “Are people giving you a hard time?” Louis wondered. Harry shifted in his seat and brushed some of his fringe off his forehead. “Yeah, that’s. That’s kind of what I wanted to talk to you about.” Harry swallowed nervously. He could feel the sweat pooling at his hairline so he wiped it with the sleeve of his sweater. “I need you to uhm, pretend to be my boyfriend.” or the one where harry is sick of getting bullied and casts louis as the hot punk boyfriend to scare them away. louis needs harry to return the favor. punk!louis and flowerchild!harry (one shot, 10k)

set alight my veins - If Liam really thinks it’s funny to send him on a surprise date with a tattooed, leather wearing punk then Harry’s going to have words with him later. When he’s managed to stop staring at the guy across from him.-Harry’s quiet and shy and does all his homework. Louis drives motorbikes and never turns up to school. Their respective friends think they’d be a cute couple. (one shot, 11k)

Hold My Heart - “Excuse me, mate, I’m the window seat here.” The voice was soft, apologetic, and accented in something a bit unfamiliar — northern England, maybe, Harry thought. “Oh,” Harry jumped to his feet and moved aside, “I’m sorry, I didn’t see you standing there.” The other man laughed as he swung a bag into the overhead compartment and slid into the seat. “You were well caught up in that book, mate. What are you reading?” Harry paused, wondering how to explain the fact that he was reading an epic and x-rated romance that was the story of a relationship between a prince and the man he’d enslaved. “Oh, you know, just some fiction my sister recommended.” He turned to look at the man and froze.Sitting next to him was Louis Tomlinson.*** Or, the one where famous Louis Tomlinson offers his hand and a lot more to his seat mate on a transatlantic flight. (one shot, 14k)

The Edge of the Stars - Louis laughed. “You think you can convince some random guy to want to go out with me?” “Oh baby,” Jay chuckled. “I can convince all of the UK to want to go out with you.” Or, a Meet the Parents AU where Harry is the man of Louis’ dreams, and it’s up to Jay to convince him to date her son. (one shot, 16k)

the love is ours to make (so we should make it) - “I’m.. Harry. I nanny? For Ernest and Doris?” Harry responded. “A nanny? How old even are you? You look twelve.” Louis remarked. Something caught Louis’ eye, and a closer look revealed that Harry had a coat of pink nail polish on his fingers. “Nineteen. I’m nineteen.” Harry replied. “Right. Nineteen, wears pink, flower crowns and paints his nails. Who the actual fuck did my mum hire?” or the one where louis takes some time off from life to return home, only to be met with a strange boy in pink and a flowercrown as the nanny of his siblings.  (one shot, 19k, some sad parts but still really cute)

Heart Without A Home - Louis is staying at the shelter when a late entry pulls at his conscience and he decides to share his precious bed with the mysterious Harry. The pair somehow find an instant bond but Louis can’t help but feel Harry is hiding something…Featuring Zayn as a chef, Perrie as the shelter manager and Liam as a helper- and Louis’ best mate.  (one shot, 20k, this is kind of angsty but it still made me smile)

Away With The Fairies - Harry liked pretty things. Mostly the ornate flowers that grew around him, the trees majestically climbing towards the sky, sometimes the little colourful birds that flitted around in the branches of those trees. Harry’s wings themselves were considered beautiful, big butterfly-like shaped things glistening pink in the light but white underneath, almost translucent. He fluttered them behind him, feeling the breeze brushing off them. He was high up where he could see the most, studiously watching the human life on the ground below. He shouldn’t be here of course, he was beyond the borders of the part of the forest where his kind lived, but he couldn’t help it. Because Harry had found the prettiest thing of all. (one shot, 22k, you should read everything by this author)

faith, trust and pixie dust (and a little bit of something else too)** - “Are you seriously apologizing for taking out a bullet that was lodged in my shoulder and saving my life?” he asks slowly. “Y—yes?” the boy looks unsure of himself now. “Marry me—” For once, the boy isn’t the only one blushing and Louis silently curses Earthen terminology for making its way into his vocabulary. Taking a deep breath to regain his composure, he coughs out, “I mean thanks. That was very nice of you…?” “Harry,” the boy fills in quietly, flashing Louis a tentative smile. Louis thinks it suits him well and he mouths the name to himself, liking the way it rolls off his tongue. He watches as Harry hesitates before asking his own question, albeit doubtfully. “And you’re—you’re P—Peter Pan, right?” Or, the one in which Louis is a punk Peter Pan and Harry is an insecure flower child.  (one shot, 27k, quite a bit of angst but Harry’s character was too cute for me to not include)

with your love we could breathe underwater - Harry’s brow furrows, a look of confusion spreading over his face. “But I am real. I exist, see,” he says, raising a hand out of the water and wiggling his fingers at Louis. Louis finds himself relaxing a bit. Harry seems harmless really. And he’s quite cute, for something that’s not supposed to exist. If Louis is indeed having a hallucination right now, at least it’s a cute one. AU where Harry is a mermaid, Louis is a human, and they both discover a lot more than they anticipated. (one shot, 28k)

Naruto Fanfics!!

***Time Travel***

backslide by blackkat COMPLETE

This was one of my first time travel fanfics… and my first slash fanfic as well.  But blackkat is incredibly talented with her writing, and I find myself unable to find a flaw in any of her fics!  She has great skill in characterization and fluff, as well as plot.  I also recommend Stormborn, reverse, Snake in the Grass, Wolf at the Door, and, really, all her fics.  But those are my favorites!

A Wrinkle in Time by rightforlife ABANDONED

Just an epic fic.  Naruto, Shikamaru, and Lee go back in time and they are epic.  I love their relationship in here! I guess you could consider them all OP, but I found it fun that way… The fic is abandoned though, sadly.

It’s For a Good Cause, I Swear! By Sarah1281 COMPLETE

A hilarious fanfic, where Kakashi, Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura go back in time and fixes a lot of things in a hilarious way. I really love how they deal with Orochimaru lol

Team Tensai and Mangekyo Sharingan by Wingwyrm COMPLETE

Team 7 goes back in time and find themselves to be kids!  They’re both awesome, though Mangekyo Sharingan is a little darker than Team Tensai, due to talks of child rape.  

Thicker Than Blood by EmptySurface ABANDONED

Sasuke and Naruto go back in time, though they come back as kids.  Their relationship in here is really sweet and I really wish the story would be continued…

Time and Again by KyLewin COMPLETE (with a sequel)

A really good fanfic.  Naruto at first thinks he’s in a genjutsu, which is a little unique. It was very well written.

The Lives Worth Saving by cyywsaphyre ABANDONED

Awesome fic! And unique in that Naruto goes back in his physical body and the way he deals with Hizashi is really awesome.

Begging for Forgiveness by Freezing Rain WIP?

This is Kakashi-centric and incredibly hard on the heart because KAKASHI and he is just so messed up.  I love his relationship with his ninken in here though.

Just the Usual Habits by mapplepie ONE-SHOT

Kakashi-centric and incredibly heart-wrenching.  But really well written.

Unwanted Trip by Solara Myles ONGOING

One of my absolute favorites!  Team 7 is sent back in time and they’re, obviously, kick ass. They’re relationship with Kakashi is amazing in here.  Also, the author’s plot is very unique compared to other time travels, imo, and it’s just well done.  

Parallels by QuestofDreams COMPLETE

This is more of a dimensional-travel thing, also SNS. It’s pretty good though!  The Yondaime is in here, though I think this was written before it was revealed that the Yondaime was Minato.  

Silent Guardians by FallenQueen2 COMPLETE

Naruto and Shikamaru go back in time to fix stuff. They fix stuff epically, of course.

Steal My Thunder God by Nauro

Naruto experiments with the Hiraishin and finds himself on the night of his birth… and mistaken for Minato.  It’s a pretty unique idea, though I think the fic is abandoned.

Into the Future by ichilover3

SNS fanfic!  Sasuke and Naruto go into the future and find their future selves in a relationship.  It’s a lot of smut/fluff, but it’s cute and funny.  Not much for plot though, since the focus is on the pairing.

Yet, mad I am not by Erisah Mae ONGOING

Itachi-centric.  He dies and finds himself in the past of another dimension.  It’s a pretty awesome fanfic, and I really like Itachi in here!

Escape Artist by Fiorea POSSIBLY ABANDONED?

MinaNaru.  It’s a really good fanfic, and it made me like the pairing cause of the way it’s done. Naruto has a lot of issues he has to go through in here, and Minato helps him.  They have a very cute relationship, which starts off as friends with Minato hinting interest and Naruto being his lovely oblivious self. But it’s super cute and very well done. Really hope it’s not abandoned.

History has its eyes on you by tasalmalin COMPLETE

Kakashi-centric! It’s a five-part series, and it really explores Kakashi’s mental state very well.  The whole series is well done and does justice to Kakashi’s character.

A snake among the leaves by blackkat COMPLETE

Orochimaru goes back in time and he brilliantly fixes stuff, much to the suspicion of everyone haha.

Hush by Xov ABANDONED

ItaNaru.  Naruto goes back in time, but it seems to be another dimension.  Naruto tries to fix stuff, but he realizes he really can’t because of it being a whole other dimension and all. Minato is alive in here and Naruto has PTSD.

Tampering with Time by Palaserece ONGOING

REALLY good and one of my absolute favorites! Minato goes back in time, but as a sort of reincarnation.  The fic is well-written, really long and still updating, and it’s really awesome because of the characterizations!

Stumble by writer168 ONGOING (nearly complete)

Sakura and Sasori go back in time!  Sakura is epic in here and Sasori is hilarious. There are also other characters go back in time but I won’t spoil it!  Sakura has serious trauma in here.  The characters are all well done and I love her frienship with Kakashi!  (I’m a total Kakashi fan… if it isn’t obvious by now…)

Blind Stars of Fortune by 100demons ONGOING

Kakashi goes back in time and into his 20 year old self!  Well-written and awesome plot!  I just love Kakashi.  

Walking Backwards on a Tightrope by Lithos Maitreya

Really good fic!  A lot of people go back in time, including Naruto, Sasuke, Shikamaru, and Shino.  It’s well-written and interesting in its twists.

Shinobi Rules by Squishfie

One of the few fem!Naruto fics I enjoyed… mostly cause it’s KakaNaru lol.  But Naruto goes back in time and becomes a student under Minato.  It’s a cute story, imo.

***Gen Fics and Self-Inserts***

Naruto Hatake by Agent-G COMPLETE

I really like the idea of Kakashi adopting Naruto and kind of wish he had, even though I understand he couldn’t (mentally).  Just a really cute fic with a good plot.

Dreaming of Sunshine by Silver Queen ONGOING

One of my first self-insert fanfics and one of the best. It made me fall in love with the Nara Clan.  Just INCREDIBLY well-written with amazing plot lines.

Sakura by Darkpetal16 COMPLETE

A SI where the person finds herself in Sakura. Hilarious and the character’s pretty awesome.  Good plot too.

Déjà vu no Jutsu by Vixen Tail COMPLETE

Really well-written SI, set before/during Third Shinobi war.  I like Minato in here :) Really, all the characters in here.  Also chibi!Kakashi is adorable.  

Naruto: Myoushuu no Fuuin by May Wren ABANDONED

A what-if fic.  What if Naruto was a seal master at a young age?  Really well written and pretty awesome! :D

The Prodigy Namikaze by SoulReaperCrewe

Features Kushina and Minato alive.  Does have Naruto neglected at a young age by them though… But, otherwise, a really great fic. I think Naruto is a little OP in here, and slightly OOC sometimes, but I still enjoyed the fic and it has an interesting pairing.  

Unplanned Paternity by TwinTrouble ABANDONED…?

Another fic where Kakashi takes care of chibi!Naruto! It’s one of my favorites and just really well-written and pretty long too.  

Broken by azfaerydust COMPLETE with a sequel!

An angsty and fluffly Kakashi adopts Naruto fic. The author characterizes Naruto and Kakshi well, since they both are very traumatized in this fic.  It’s just adorable because Kakashi is overprotective and ahh! One of my favorites and I’ve reread it way too many times!

Of Harrowed Hearts by Sable_Scribe ONGOING

REALLY amazing and one of my favorites!  Naruto and Team 7 is awesome in here, and Kurama is also amazing. The story updates weekly (as of now) and it’s super satisfying and I love the plot.  

Tuna Fish and Red-Splattered Pages by Pitch Black Magpie ONGOING

I really love Team 7 in here.  Naruto and Sasuke’s frienship is pretty awesome as well. Naruto’s character is very… unique too. I like the supernatural side of the story too, though I guess it seems slightly crack-y.  I like the view Naruto has of the Uchiha as well.

A Political Perspective by VJ Riddle

Kakashi creates an epic Team 7.  Really wish this had happened in canon tbh.  

The Somewhat Cracked mind of Uchiha Itachi by Kereea

Hilarious!  I really love Itachi in here and, really, everyone.

Blood Sings by Fireun Feather ONGOING

Naruto is a half-demon in here. I like Minato and Naruto in here and their father-son relationship.  

Chiaroscuro by boomvroomshroom

Shikamaru-centric!  I really enjoy the plot.  

***Pairing fics***

(mostly slash fanfics… you have been warned)

~SNS

(A lot of these fics are dark with fluff mixed in… because I can’t see SNS being totally fluffy.  It doesn’t really fit in with how I see them.  They’re both messed up people, Sasuke more evidently.)

Sound of Dreams by zrina COMPLETE

Really, really love this one because it features an amazing plot, is super long, and I love the characterizations of Naruto and Sasuke.  This is a NaruSasu fic and really well-written.

A World of Truth by luchia COMPLETE

Enjoyed this one because it’s in Sasuke’s POV and I liked how his character was done in here. It shows he’s very human, but not irredeemable.

Hopeless Wanderer by dawnstruck (series)

Super dark but really delicious.  Sasuke takes Naruto with him when he defects and wow… it’s really good!  Their relationship is very codependent, which, in reality, they are based on canon imo. I like the idea of Naruto and Sasuke leaving Konoha together tbh.

Post-Traumatic by IsolaVirtuosa COMPLETE

Really long and incredibly dark at times. Sasuke is really messed up in here and Naruto isn’t altogether sane himself.  Their relationship is very messed-up, but the ending is satisfying after that roller-coaster of a journey.

All In by Narutos Mother (momhuey) COMPLETE

The second half of the story is VERY dark, but Sasuke is super sweet in here. Slight Sakura-bashing?  She’s the villain of the story in here.

Lost on the Road of Life by shherie (series)

Cute story (it’s the first in a very cute series anyways), but Sasuke and Naruto do have issues getting into a relationship. Naruto is determined in here though and Sasuke is his bastard self in the first story, though absolutely adorable in the rest of the series.  Hachi, the sequel after a series of one-shots, is really good too!

Titanic by meowstelle ONE-SHOT

In Itachi’s POV and an AU.  But I found it really hilarious.

Breaking him down by IvvyMoon COMPLETE

Another dark fic, because Sasuke is an utter bastard at the beginning, though he redeems himself.  

Healing the Broken by KizuKatana COMPLETE

Dark and angsty, but their characters are done well. Great ending and plot.

An Invincible Summer by ShanaStoryteller COMPLETE

Naruto is gender-fluid in here, but WOW is it done well! The whole story is absolutely amazing and I didn’t want it to end!

Phoenix Rising by Kai_Maciel

This isn’t really SNS, because Naruto ends up raising Sasuke (you have to read it to find out why), but I really like the relationship because chibi!Sasuke is adorable and Naruto as a father should be this way, not the way he is to Boruto.  

For Brothers Share This Bond by bluedemon92 COMPLETE

Okay, this is the definition of dark and angsty. It’s really hard to read sometimes because of the issues… but it’s more Itachi-centric, with SNS.  But it has a unique plot and is well-written. Also KakaIta and KisaIta.

The sun within me by fangirlandiknowit ONGOING

Sasuke and Naruto find themselves in another dimension (from the movie Road to Ninja) and the plot is interesting.

~KakaNaru

(One of my OTPs, nbd)

A ninja must see underneath the underneath by Blooregard89 COMPLETE

KakaNaru and their frienship-to-romance is cute.  

Things Just Ain’t the Same Any Time the Hunter Gets Captured by the Game by barspoon COMPLETE

ONE OF MY FAVORITES.  She does the relationship REALLY well and it’s just amazing.  

Konoha’s Orange by purplefox COMPLETE

Good plot and it’s interesting, that’s for sure.  I like that there’s a bit of dimension travel in here and I like the relationship.  Kakashi is the one who’s oblivious in here, which is pretty funny.

A Safe Haven by Red_Hot_Holly_Berries ONGOING

I like the plot in here and I really look forward to the rest!

When You Look Me in The Eyes by blueicequeen ONE-SHOT

REALLY like this one!  A long one-shot and their relationship is super well done. Especially since it’s just a one-shot!

Fifteen Million Ryo by Riya3 COMPLETE

An interesting plot idea and I like how the relationship comes about.  It’s also funny and the side story with Sakura and Sai is done well.

(If you have other KakaNaru fics, I’d really, really love you if you’d let me know. There aren’t enough in the world…)

~Other Pairings

Break to Breathe by Okami Rayne COMPLETE (series)

ShikaNeji!  Interesting plot and the characterization is well done, to say the least.

Hyakumensou by Agni ABANDONED?

ItaNaru!  I like the idea of an arranged marriage and I like how the relationship progresses. Though Itachi could be considered slightly OOC, but I still enjoyed it.

Dimension by YukiwaFuru ABANDONED…

NaruMina… short, but I really enjoyed Naruto in here. The relationship was only a friendship, from what is written.

Walk the road of life by LasySwitch COMPLETE

KakaObi.  A soulmate AU and it’s cute.

Stalker by SweetDreamsAreMadeOfNaruto ONESHOT

A dark ObiKaka.  

Kiss and Run by SweetDreamsAreMadeOfNaruto ONESHOT

Cute KakaObi!  

It’s Just That Any One of Us is Half Without Another One is You by Branch COMPLETE

This is largely Gen and takes the original Naruto plot and fleshes it out and gives a lot more justice to the plot.  It ends up being SakuSasuNaru.

In Bond and Blood by thehoyden ONESHOT

KakaIru.  One of the few KakaIru’s I enjoyed!  

A Set-up For A Romantic Comedy by sleepyjeesh COMPLETE

KakaObi!  Super cute and I like Obito in here!

Surrender by triste ONESHOT

Dark ItaNaru!  Interesting idea though.

Your heart is a weapeon the size of your first by blackkat

ZabuNaru (rare pairing).  It’s well done because blackkat somehow makes any pairing work!

Another reincarnation story by HeavenOnFire COMPLETE

KisaIta.  Itachi is reincarnated, as well as Kisame. It’s a nice story with a good plot.  

The Grey Crayon by checkerbloom COMPLETE

MinaKaka.  Chibi!Naruto is super adorable!  The whole story is cute.  

The Way Things Are by Aini COMPLETE

ShikaNeji.  It’s a cute story and I like the pairing :)

pairing: tom holland x reader

inspired by @animeimagines  💖

-

“You know,“ you heard Tom say behind you in between handfuls of popcorn. "I can do that.”

You watched intently as Patrick Swayze lifted Jennifer Grey into the air with little to no effort, immediately doubting your boyfriends statement.

Tom had a day off, and decided he wanted to stay in with you and just relax while he had some free time. As much as he loved doing extravagant things, he had to admit that snuggling up to each other on the couch and shutting out the outside world for the day was a necessity every once in a while.

Why Batman and Wonder Woman are the Perfect DC Power Couple
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice had plenty of flaws, but the movie had a very big silver [...]

1. They Already Have ‘In Canon’ History

DC first teased the idea of a Batman and Wonder Woman relationship during Joe Kelly’s run on JLA. After sharing a kiss in ancient Atlantis, Batman and Wonder Woman briefly considered dating. However, Wonder Woman decided against it after realizing that the relationship could either go really well or really poorly. Ultimately, Wonder Woman and Batman chose not to risk their friendship over a relationship that wasn’t a “sure thing.”

Most “WonderBats” fans fully got behind the 'ship because of the Justice League and Justice League Unlimited cartoons, which teased a Wonder Woman and Batman romance for years. In addition to the occasional flirtatious banter, the lingering glances, and the occasional unexpected kiss, the Justice League cartoons showed exactly why the characters worked well together. Wonder Woman wasn’t intimidated by Batman’s stony demeanor and Batman trusted Wonder Woman enough to let her see his flirtatious and playful side.

While there was plenty of mutual flirting between the pair, fans got to see exactly how much Batman cared for Wonder Woman in the episode “This Little Piggy”. After the sorceress Circe transformed Wonder Woman into a pig, Batman agreed to exchange “something precious” in order to get her back. That “something” turned out to be a soul-baring performance of “Am I Blue” in front of a crowd of dozens of people. Batman was willing to put aside the persona and mystique he had built around himself and show his “true self” in order to save Wonder Woman, a fitting analogy for his relationship with Diana.

3. Their Relationship Works

Batman and Wonder Woman are kindred spirits, but they each approach the world in wildly different ways. Batman uses intimidation and fear to advance his goals, even around his friends and allies. Meanwhile, Wonder Woman relies on kindness first and turns to violence as a last resort. But those attitudes are actually weirdly complimentary to one another.

Wonder Woman possesses an infinite patience that’s perfect for dealing with Batman’s intimidating airs and cold attitude. No amount of pushing or angst would drive Wonder Woman away, as long as Wonder Woman wanted to be to be with him. Let’s face it: Batman is a longterm project, and Wonder Woman might be the only person with the patience to see it to the end.

All those layers to Batman present something intriguing in Wonder Woman, too. There’s a mystery to Batman that tends to draw women in, but they’ve all been turned away by his incessant drive and…well, the fact that he’s so, so broken inside. Wonder Woman might be the one person in the world who can see the good in Batman, while not getting turned away from the accepting the bad.

As for Batman, his relationships tend to collapse due to a lack of trust. He’s either unwilling to bring his romantic partner fully into his world or he can’t bring himself to trust completely. Wonder Woman presents the perfect solution to both issues. Wonder Woman instantly fits inside his crazy weird world of crime fighting. Even if their relationship were to go public, there’s not a lunatic in Arkham who could really threaten Wonder Woman, not even on their worst, most deviant day. And she’s perhaps the most genuine person in the world, armed with a lasso of truth that makes lying to her impossible. If there is one person in the world who Batman can trust, it’s Wonder Woman.

Cuddles | J.A

Prompt: #33 - “You are strangely comfortable.”

Requested: Yesss

Warnings: May cause severe Jack feels? It’s also kind of short but I think it’s cute anyway.

 Many people thought that living in LA made your relationship with Jack easier, but that wasn’t always the case. Even when the boys weren’t on tour they still travelled around a lot and if they weren’t travelling it was meetings, interviews, songwriting, recording or rehearsing. 

Currently, the boys were at the studio and you were chilling around the WDW house which was something you did a lot these days. You lived in a pretty good apartment complex but you preferred being around your boyfriend and his friends, who had become like brothers to you too. Jack loved coming back home to see you after a hectic day, even when he was beyond exhausted. 

You’d watched pretty much all there was to watch on Netflix and it was getting harder to keep your eyes open, so you decided to head up to Jack and Daniel’s room. It took everything in you not to fall asleep, especially when you’d made it your personal mission earlier that day to find the baggiest hoodie your boyfriend owned. You loved being able to smell his scent wherever you went

That was until your phone pinged with the notification you’d been waiting for all night.

10:30 pm 

Jack: hey you. we’re heading home now are you still at the house?

Y/N: yes, can we cuddle?

Jack: duh. 

The boy you’d fallen in love with eventually strolled into his bedroom, with a tired smile plastered across his face at the sight of you. His curls looked messy and were all over the place but he still managed to look perfect. 

“Hey baby.” Jack yawned and all but threw himself onto the bed next to you. 

 “No Daniel?” You always felt bad for invading their room, but you loved cuddling with your boyfriend too much. 

“Nah, he’s watching TV downstairs. It’s just you and me.” Jack laughed as he got under the covers with you, leaning his head on your chest and wrapping his arms around your waist.

He stared up at you for a while, admiring your beauty even though you didn’t have a single drop of makeup on your face. You used to feel insecure without it, but being with Jack changed that because he made you feel safe and loved.

“You are strangely comfortable.” He sighed contently. 

“Strangely?” You couldn’t help but erupt into a fit of giggles. 

“Okay, fine. You’re a really good pillow and I want to stay here for the rest of my life.” Jack poked at your cheek with his finger. He thought you had the cutest giggle in the world and he loved when you did it because of him.

“So are you like, my personal koala now?” You sassed him, something you both did a lot unsurprisingly.

He wrapped his arms tighter around you and snuggled even further into you, as if you would disappear from his grasp if he didn’t. 

“Yes.” His voice suddenly became deep and raspy, despite his voice already being pretty deep normally. It happened when he was tired and you knew that.

You started to play with his hair, moving it out of his face when it fell as Jack traced lazy patterns on your side until you both fell asleep peacefully in each others arms. 

There were definitely pictures of you and Jack all over the internet when Daniel came into the room later that night, because the sight was just too cute not to be photographed. 



A/N: I haven’t proofread this but I really needed more Jack fluff in my life so here we are.

Masterlist /  Prompt List

WANNA ONE & MXM ❃ THEIR NICKNAME FOR YOU

YOON JISUNG 

Sunshine. Because to Jisung, that is what you are; he is known for being a ball of sunshine to the others, but what they do not know is that you are actually the reason Jisung is always cheerful and smiling.

HA SUNGWOON 

Precious. It may be a bit of an old nickname, but to Sungwoon it reminds him just how important you to him and that he never wants to lose you. 

HWANG MINHYUN 

Sweetheart. You are sweet, sincere and kind, so what could be a better nickname? Minhyun just loves seeing your smile widen and the light shade of pink on your cheeks whenever he calls you this.

ONG SEONGWOO 

Gorgeous. It may be an over-used nickname, but to Seongwoo it’s the reality. He likes calling you this because it feels like he is always complimenting you and you truly are gorgeous for Seongwoo. 

KIM JAEHWAN 

Darling. Pretty old-school, but he thinks it’s a very beautiful nickname and in his eyes, you are the dearest and most beautiful person. He would call you that whenever he feels affectionate as he gives you a backhug and kisses your cheek.

KANG DANIEL 

Kitten. It may seem cliché , but he just finds you as adorable as a cat and the way you always snuggle up to him and act all adorable when you’re embarassed reminds him of one. He usually calls you this whenever you are trying to get his attention. 

PARK JIHOON 

Peach. You are delightful and so, so sweet. Although the nickname is different from the usual ones someoen would call his girlfriend, Jihoon wanted to be original and different; so he called you after a fruit both of you love. 

PARK WOOJIN 

Sweetie. You are too sweet for Woojin and truthfully speaking, he didn’t really knew what nickname would fit you better cause you are so great. He settled for this one because he thinks it’s the best and he always says it with a smile. 

BAE JINYOUNG 

Princess. This one is pretty self-explanatory; Jinyoung just thinks of you as the most precious thing in the world and decided to give you a nickname accordingly. However, he is still a bit shy using it; so he usually saves it for the special occasions. 

LEE DAEHWI

Cutie pie. You are adorable and everything you do is absolutely charming in Daehwi’s eyes. He will use the nickname on a daily basis and sometimes even randomly because he can’t help it; you are too cute for him.   

LAI GUAN LIN 

Mine. Not much of a nickname, but he uses it like one. On the times he feels dominant, Guan Lin will just claim you as his in the most loving and endearing way. He enjoys seeing your cheeks getting red whenever he calls you this. 


IM YOUNGMIN 

Love. Another self-explanatory nickname because you are literally the love of his life and Youngmin honestly couldn’t think of a more fitting nickname. He always blushes and giggles cutely whenever he calls you this.

KIM DONGHYUN 

Angel. To this boy, you are the best thing that could ever happen to him and he is always thankful to you for being in his life. As he sees your presence as a blessing, this nickname is the most suited one in his opinion.

female awesome meme: ladies who are unfairly hated (1/5) - isabella swan

“i realized now that i’d long ago given up any aspirations of shining at anything. i just did the best with what i had, never quite fitting into my world. so this was really different. i was amazing now—both to them and to myself. it was like i had been born to be a vampire. the idea made me want to laugh, but it also made me want to sing. i had found my true place in the world, the place i fit, the place i shined.”

Fits of Laughter

Anon Request: 
“OK so same adulting anon here I know you’re swamped with requests but imagine Tyler and reader both having laugh attacks at the same time during a stream and the rest of teamiplier just watch and laugh at their laugh attack and that’s it really no substance to it at all just everyone laughing for like 2 minutes and at the end Tyler and reader just lay down on the floor bc they can’t breathe anymore and mark is like “why did I almost broadcast your guys’ deaths to the world via livestream omg" 

Hope you enjoy!

You don’t even remember the source. You don’t even remember falling off your chair. 
All you knew, was that you could barely breath and you weren’t the only one laughing hysterically. 
Tyler was across the room, leaning against the desk as his laughter boomed through the room. You couldn’t be seen as the couch was blocking you from the camera, but the stream could just hear you over Tyler. And you sounded close to dying. 
Mark looked between the two of you with sheer confusion on his face. Ethan was chuckling, at first concerned for your fall, but then just amused by your reddening face. 
Amy and Katherine just sat on their chairs, nibbling on pizza. Watching the whole thing unfold with small grins on their cheesy lips. 
“W-Why are we..gasp..laughing?” You forced through the fit of giggles. 
Tyler only shook his head. His beanie had fallen off as he collapsed to his knees. His chest heaving as he tried to beat his cackles for breath. 
“I..I don’t know!” 
For some reason his answer was the funniest thing you’ve ever heard. And you roared with laughter gripping onto the couch and pulling yourself up so the camera can see you. 
“Guys…guys!” You tried, but couldn’t finish your sentence and you fell backwards in another fit. 
Mark just shook his head and turned to the camera. His own bemused smile twitching when the two of you started off again. 
“As I was saying-” He didn’t get through the sentence. Tyler crawled over to the couch, still panting and chuckling. But one look at you on the floor erupted him with almost maniacal laughter. 
“I swear to God!” Mark hollered, “Shut up! I’m trying to speak!” 
But your funny bones refused to listen as Tyler rolled off the couch, unable to contain himself. 

Chica ran over to you. Her wet nose prodding your face as you rolled about on the floor. 
“Yes, Chica! Give her mouth to mouth!” Ethan urged the pup. “Maybe it’ll get her to breath!” 
You pushed the pup away, hiccuping slightly. Finally calming down, you laid on the floor, breathing hard.
“Are you two done?” Mark asked. Eyeing Tyler with a hard, mocking glare.
You waved your hand, suddenly exhausted. “I don’t think  I could even burp without rupturing a lung.”
Tyler sniggered and sighed heavily. “We’ll just stay down here for the rest of the stream. Catch our breath.” 
“Maybe nap.” You suggested and Tyler nodded, stilling smiling broadly.
Ethan looked down at his phone, then looked at you.
“Pigeons”
The flood gates were released once more! 
“Stop it!” Mark shouted, “I don’t want to record their demise!”
Amy leaned down with a piece of pizza in her hand, “Do you want a bite?” 
You shook your head, unable to speak. Pizza was so hilarious to you and your cackling turned silent. 
Leaving you flopping about on the floor like a mute seal.

anonymous asked:

How do you imagine Korrasami's wedding? <3

Oh man, I just noticed this this inbox! And it’s such an awesome question too!

Honestly, I don’t have one definitive image of what a Korrasami wedding would look like. I’ve read some headcanons that I REALLY love and others that I would rather not happen.

I imagine that the two of them would prefer a smaller gathering with close friends and family. It would lead to a far more personal and intimate environment for two of them; Korra and Asami sharing the most important day of their lives their family and friends. However, I think this would be a bit tricky for them to pull off, seeing as how we’ve got the CEO of a very prestigious company marrying Korra, the Avatar (and well, I think her importance is obvious enough that I don’t have to write it out :p)

There would probably be a bit of a political connotation attached to their wedding along with MANY news coverings on each and every aspect from the lead-up, to the ceremony, to the honeymoon and everything/anything else in between (much to the dismay of our two ladies).

Due to this, I imagine that they would potentially hold two weddings. One where they can get all of the news shenanigans out of the way and another along the lines of what I mentioned before - an intimate reception with their loved ones.

I’m not sure where I would like to see the wedding take place, though I wouldn’t be surprised if it was at Air Temple Island or the Spirit World (which would kinda be appropriate too since they both had their first, big romantic getaway there).

I’ve seen a lot of debate about who would officiate the wedding – some say Bolin due to his role in Varrick’s wedding, other people say Iroh or Tenzin. I honestly don’t have any objects to any of these characters taking the role, but the one that’s grown on me a quite a bit is Katara.

There just seems to be something really fitting about it – if perhaps a little emotional, seeing as how she’s the widow of Korra’s predecessor, Aang. I know we haven’t seen much of her in TLOK, but from little snippet’s we’ve witnessed, Katara has always been a champion of Korra – believing in Korra’s strength after the firebending test, understanding Korra’s need to journey out to Republic City and be in the real world, attempting to restore Korra’s bending after the equalist revolution as well as being one of Korra’s caretakers during her downfall after Zaheer. Katara has always wanted Korra to thrive, to be happy, to succeed and to just live her life. One exchange between these two that has always been stuck on my mind is:

        “And… what am I going to find if I… get through this?” ~ Korra

        “I don’t know. But won’t it be interesting to find out?” ~ Katara (B4:E2)

I’ve already written a long analysis about how Korra fought her way out of the dark and found inner peace. But she also found love; true, organic and meaningful love with Asami. Katara is someone that found a similar love with Aang and… I don’t know, I just feel like she would possibly want to help Korra and Asami celebrate this wonderful feeling (sorry for the long-winded focus on this topic, let’s move on).

Hmm, what else… I also kinda like the idea of Tonraq walking Asami down the isle, ESPECIALLY since she lost her own father. I have a bit of a headcanon that Tonraq and Asami would get along immediately – almost to the point of where they become “best friends” (for a lack of a better term), bonding over teasing/loving Korra as well as having silly inside jokes – I blame @weissrose and his amazing series Seeking Balance for this. But yeah, I definitely think Tonraq (as well as Senna, obviously) would quickly accept Asami as one of his own; a member of the Water Tribe and a daughter. I imagine that Asami would also feel a little emotional over having Tonraq walking her as she finally got one of the things she always wanted – a family. But who knows… Maybe he’ll walk both of his girls down the isle, or maybe Asami will be the one waiting as she watches the love of her life walk towards her in down the isle in her beautiful dress. <3

Speaking of dresses, I definitely see Korra sporting a beautiful, traditional Water Tribe dress while Asami wears either an elegant red dress or a white one with red accents (maybe something along the lines of this or this?). I know some people like Korra in a suit/vest, but we’ve seen her constantly wear dresses at important events. I also think their decorations and drapes would consist of reds and blues along with blends of purple to represent the unity of these two beautiful ladies (cliché, I know…).

I think lots of tears will be shed during each other’s vows (though I’m sure that tears of happiness will begin once they first lay their eyes on each other on the isle). In that moment, it will just be the two of them and no one else. I wouldn’t be surprised if the three year separation between Book 3 and Book 4 was brought up during the vows. It was a painful period for them, one where they spent more time apart than with each other, but it was also a time where they had the chance to really miss each other, analyze their feelings and grow to understand that “yes, the reason why I miss her so much is because she means the absolute world to me.” I think Janet Varney put this very beautifully here. During this time of their wedding, they once again get to promise that will never leave each other’s backs ever again.

Other little things that I would love to see in a Korrasami wedding include:

~ Bolin bursting out in loud tears once Korra and Asami join each other at the end of the isle to begin the wedding ceremony

~ Pabu being the ring bearer

~ Korra attempting to dip Asami when they go in for the big kiss, but Asami beats Korra to the punch AND lifts her up bridal-style

~ Speeches from Tenzin, Pema and the Krew - Mako can’t help but mention how the two ladies he once dated ended up very much in love with each other…

~ Tahno and his band playing jazzy music

~ Korra and Asami absolutely stealing the show with their first dance. Even after other couples join in, all eyes are on the two of them. Not that Korra and Asami notice; they are far too intent on each other and the emotion of finally being married that nothing else matters. They also totally show everyone up during fast dances as well…

~ Tonraq and Senna dancing with Korra and Asami <3

~ Tenzin dancing with Korra and Asami <3 <3 

~ THE KREW ALL DANCING WITH EACH OTHER <3 <3 <3

~ Korra and Asami cut their first piece of cake and feed each other, but it quickly escalates into a food fight due to Korra and her mischief - not everything can be picture perfect, you know…

~ Korra and Asami both throw their flower bouquets and Jinora, Ikki, Opal and Meelo quickly try to catch them in mid-air with their bending… it ends a human pile with flat flowers

~ Tenzin and Korra have another little heart-to-heart conversation with each other about how proud and happy he is for her and Asami

~ Naga whisking the two ladies away on her back (though this may be a little awkward if they are situated on Air Temple Island - though I guess Korra can form one of those cool water bubble things around them if they choose to leave via the ocean rather of waiting for a ferry)

And I’m sure there are lots of other things that I like but didn’t put in. I’m really curious as to what you all would like for a Korrasami wedding. If you have anything to add, please do! At the end of the day, what really matters is that our two ladies will be together and in love for the rest of their lives.

Y’know when you get all sauced up about stuff on the ol’ twitter. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Really though, there have been SO MANY great strides recently in seeing more diverse and, let’s face it, WAY BETTER AND MORE INTERESTING character design starting to make its way into both comics and cartoons, and I’d just really-REALLY like to see it keep being pushed in a strong, broad direction. There are few things in the art world that are more disappointing to me than seeing characters initially introduced with a non-thin body only to be crimped into the same hourglass or “””fit””” (fit is many different sizes!!) body type by another artist or future issue, episode, etc. etc. (There is a whole other can of worms to open up about what constitutes a “thin” body in most media, and the limitations put on what types of thin are considered acceptable as well, but I’ve only got so much rant in me.)

Just something to chew over. I know I can still get better, too, and I’m gonna keep at it!

Homestuck classpect musings

Something I realized last night: the only reason Homestuck actually has a plot is because the characters involved are all forced to play using pre-built character sheets; if SBURB/SGRUB had a halfway decent character editor built in, then a party of 3-4 dedicated powergamers could easilly snap the game in half.

Put simply, it’s actually pretty obvious that not all classes and aspects are created equal (no matter what some might say on the matter), and some simply become so utterly gamebreaking once explored that it isn’t even funny. To just give two examples that use nothing but canon information: Seer of Time and Seer of Space.

In canon, Seers are shown to see things and foresee events governed by their aspect. Rose, Seer of Light, is able to know the exact most fortuitous path that the meteor group needs to take, no matter how insane or convoluted that path actually is, and Terezi, Seer of Mind, is able to foresee the results of people’s decisions, possibly to the point of knowing what you will do before you do, and might even have been able to read thoughts if she had God Tiered (as evidenced by her being able to see Brain Ghost Dirk, actually see him, despite being blind at the time).

Meanwhile, Time and Space are the only aspects shown to be mostly literal, albeit with some esoteric connotations, literally governing the fabric of space and time. All Time players are shown to have the ability to time travel (a trick which is outright weaponized by Dave), Aradia is shown to be able to actually stop time for an enemy, and Lord English uses time itself as a weapon, wielding stable timeline loops as both sword and shield. Meanwhile, on the Space side, Jade is able to freely manipulate the mass and volume of objects, able to make a planet small enough to fit in her hand without any change in density, and alternate future Caliope is able to all but rewrite reality, manipulating the physical world in a way which, due to timeline complications in the Farthest Ring, should be impossible.

Combining this knowledge, Seer of Time and Seer of Space get really, really broken. To start with the weaker ability: a Seer of Space would be able to see everything, anywhere, at that exact moment. They wouldn’t exactly be able to foresee things, time being explicitly out of their control, but they would have perfect knowledge of reality at any given moment, making them a mathematical demon. No matter where you ran, they could catch you. No matter where you hid, they could find you. No matter what precautions you took, the only way to get around a Seer of Space would be to exploit either time based shenanigans, or to wield Void powers (something which even the omniscient can’t get around).

Meanwhile, a Seer of Time would be ridiculously, abominably, unstopably insane, able to foresee any and all conequences of everything that might or must happen, along with knowledge of when things must happen for events to unfold. While they themselves might not have any time travel powers (or at least, being so weak with time travel that there’s no real reason to bother), they wouldn’t actually need them, because they already know what the future holds. To give one small example of how insanely broken a Seer of Time would be, they would be able to know the exact moment needed to set off a packet of explosives, the blast from which would cause air turbulence, which would interact with the weather patterns already in existance, which would cause a cascade of unlikely but perfectly timed events to create an EF5 tornado, which would conveniently touch down just before it’s time to fight the Black King.

And this is just parsing canon information; I’d shudder to imagine how some other classpects would be, if fandom speculation is correct. Heir of Hope, assuming that Heir means, “protected by, and responsible for,” and that Hope means, “possibilities, dreams, and that which might be,” would mean that an Heir of Hope would be protected by possibility itself, to the point of trancending luck; all which is and might be would bend over backwards to protect the Heir of Hope, to the point of surrealism. A Prince of Void, using canon info here, would parse as, “one who destroys, or destroys through, that which is hidden or does not exist,” and would mean that a Prince of Void would be able to simply destroy the nonexistance of anything, probably able to create things to a far greater degree than Roxy in canon, who merely steals their nonexistance rather than destroying it. A Lord of Blood, assuming Lord to mean, “one who holds command and dominion,” and Blood to mean, “unity, community, and fraternity,” would parse out as, “one who commands unity,” and that ads up to the literally perfect leader, able to command any disparate group into a single well-oiled machine.

Really, the only reason Homestuck has a plot at all is because the characters shown actually have some pretty shitty classes and aspects. Give me a Seer of Time, a Knight of Space, an Heir of Hope, and a Prince of Void, and the biggest danger would be them arguing with themselves.

Which do u prefer as Ink's megalovania? Tokyovania by SharaX or Megalopaintia by Mr CWingz? THE WORLD OF UNDERTALE NEEDS TO KNOW XD

I think both are wonderful! <3 I don’t think Megalovania fits for Ink’s theme, anyway, but yeah, I’m just really honored remixes were made just for this jerk //v//
