Kid-Apoo-Hawkins Alliance. Headcanons Part 5: The Alliance
Ever since he arrived at Kid’s base and
accepted to form an alliance with him and Apoo, Hawkins has been leaving little
scent jars full of essential oils literally everywhere and is following the
same process he uses on his ship: to try and create the right atmosphere via
Kid doesn’t like “his den smelling like a
brothel” one bit, according to his own words.
Seeing as the relaxing scents he’d been using -
mainly to mollify Kid’s volatile temper and his obvious rivalry with Apoo -
didn’t seem to be working, Hawkins increased the concentration of the mix after
consulting Killer about it, who is secretly grateful for the initiative.
Apoo was incredibly happy upon discovering he
wasn’t the only music fan of the group. Killer plays the drums every chance he
gets, the double-jointed man once caught Hawkins playing an old harpsichord and
as much as it pains Apoo to admit they have something in common, Kid spends
plenty of his time blasting music.
When Apoo, in his elation for having found a
common ground with the other three, tried to give them all a group hug, things
didn’t end well. Hawkins got so tense, that combined with his usual
expressionless face, he looked like an opossum when it’s playing dead and
Killer had to place himself in the middle and make a gigantic effort to prevent
Kid from successfully strangling poor Apoo.
Hawkins has been about to drop the alliance
more than once, fed up with Kid and Apoo’s childish behaviour. So far, Killer
has always managed to convince him to stay.
Betting on who will manage to make Hawkins
laugh is one of the rare occasions when Kid and Apoo are not trying to kill each
other. So far, none of them have achieved anything.
Once Apoo tried to tickle Hawkins in an attempt
to win the bet. The calm and stoic Hawkins nearly killed him. It’s the only
time he has ever used his Devil Fruit powers against any of his allies.
Killer is the one who ensures peace within the
group and tries to solve any quarrel through dialogue.
Hawkins is the only one who actually has any
When Apoo is bored and there’s nothing else to
do around the base, he follows Kid at a safe distance and makes weird/dumb
sounds to simulate every step he takes, the way he chews, etc. just to annoy
Once he’s done bothering Kid (meaning when he’s
been about to die at Kid’s hands thrice in about two minutes), he goes off to
see what Hawkins is up to, who in turn spends most of his time looking into his
cards in silence. He tries to strike up a conversation with him, but always
ends up monologuing; from time to time he’ll receive a monosyllabic response or
a distracted “mhm”, however Hawkins is not much of a talker. If he’s desperate
enough to get some kind of distraction, Apoo will ask for a card reading.
Every week they all gather for a game of poker.
Hawkins and Killer bleed the rest dry, Kid gets his dander up and destroys
something while Apoo teases him and laughs his head off as he enjoys the show
that is to witness one of Kid’s infamous tantrums.
If they were a family Killer would most
definitely be the mother who tries to keep everything in order; Hawkins would
either be the indifferent father or the eldest “I’m too mature for this crap” son;
Apoo is certainly the prankster middle child who always picks on the runt who
is undoubtedly, Kid.
Seventeen-year-old prostitute Hashi embraces a Babu, her “husband”, inside her small room at Kandapara brothel in Tangail, a northeastern city of Bangladesh. Many young and inexperienced prostitutes have “lovers” or “husbands” who normally live outside the brothel occasionally taking money and sex from them in exchange for security in this male dominated society. She earns about 800-1000 taka daily ($9.75 - $12.19) servicing around 15-20 customers every day. Hashi is one of hundreds of mostly teenage sex workers living in a painful life of exploitation in Kandapara slum’s brothel who take Oradexon, a steroid used by farmers to fatten their cattle, in order to gain weight and appear “healthier” and more attractive to clients.
A neighborhood of around one hundred buildings with more than 800 small rooms is one of 14 official brothels of Bangladesh; in essence a prison for around 900 sex workers. The young sex workers of Kandapara brothel in Tangail must serve at least 10-15 customers each day. Being a “Chukri’ or bonded girl, they are bound to follow the orders of their Sardarni (House owners, who were previously prostitutes and purchase girls to run their business).
This may be useful for you. Also: tavern-owners, distillers, brewers, tavern-goers, lawmen, mercenaries, courtesans, etc. etc. etc. Have a list of the plants that can make alcohol in Sornieth.
Most of the items I have listed here are for use in wines, however,
Sornieth does have a few wheat-like plants that produce grain. Grain is
used to make stronger brews like vodka, whiskey, and rum. Wine and brandy need fermented fruit.
Please note that I am NOT an expert in malting in any way. Most of this has been gleaned from books, and as such is probably lacking in some areas. That being said, if you’d like to contact me about the malting process, I can link you to several good sources/share what I know.
FR plants you can make spirits out of:
Amaranth (a grain - used for stronger stuff like whiskey, gin, rum, and vodka)
Winter’s Delight (in my lore this is a rare, delicious wine harvested on the winter solstice)
So I had an idea a few months ago about a Klance Brothel AU and I wanted to share some headcannons with y’all:
Keith Kogane is a
prostitute in an illegal and unregulated brothel with exploitative conditions
Lance McClain is a cop
who pretends to be a prostitute
Everyone is aged up (from
25 to 35)
Lance is on a sting
operation to catch the owner and go along with the suspect’s actions to gather
evidence of the suspect’s criminal activity (exploitation of prostitution)
The operation is
supervised by detective Allura Altea backed up by her assistant Coran and her
team called “Voltron” (Hunk Garrett, Pigde Gunderson and Takashi Shirogane –
Lance meets Keith for the
first time after a few years right in the brothel
Keith is surprised to see
Lance McClain there. Is he a client? He can’t tell but he hope so
Lance is shocked. He
thought Keith just moved away to another state to start a new life or something
They went to the same police
accademy but Keith got kicked out for disciplinary issues and lack of
attendance even though he was one of the best students. Then he disappeared
They have been rivals but
it was kind of one-sided thing started by Lance. He wanted to be recognize as
an equal under Keith’s eyes
Actually Keith had a
crush on Lance
Keith: “What the fuck are
you doing here?!”
Lance: “Excuse me? What
the fuck are you doing here?!”
Lance tells him he just got
the job and from now on he’s an actual prostitute
Keith gets so mad at
Lance that he drags the guy in his room yelling he’s just made the worst choice of his life
Lance: “That’s none of
Keith: “You’re just
wasting your life, asshole”
And that’s how Keith realizes
he’s still pining after Lance
Lance thinks he can pull
some important information from Keith since he’s been in the brothel for years
and apparently he seems to be the owner’s favorite. He just need to get closer
to him and get his complete trust
They become friends at
some point and Keith trusts Lance enough to give him a lot of useful
information. Keith also tells Lance he’s the only one he can trust in that place. Lance feels awfully guilty
after Keith’s confession. After all he’s manipulating Keith filling his head with
lies. But he has to if he wants the operation to succeed
Keith is jealous of
Lance’s totally oblivious
They fight a lot because
of that but Lance just doesn’t get it
Keith is a mess
Lance is only focused on
his sting operation but then feelings kick him in the cojones
Keith is impulsive and
sick of Lance’s blindness so he kisses him
Lots of feelings
One day police raid on
the brothel and the owner gets arrested. All the prostitutes are escorted out
of the bulding. Keith is sickly worried since Lance is nowhere to be seen
Keith doesn’t want to
leave without Lance so he fights against the cops
He’s forcibly dragged by
the police out of the brothel. Lance is out there talking to a silver haired
woman who seems to be a cop
The woman is returning
Lance’s badge back giving him a pat on the shoulder. She seems to be very proud.
Keith’s head starts to spin
Keith: “What does this
Lance: “Keith…I can
Keith: “You fucking lied
