Reactions To the Dragon Maid Finale Coming To You From The Afterlife Because I’m Fucking Dead

*Spoilers for Ep 13 Below!!*


No one deserved emotional mayhem on this level but I also thoroughly enjoyed it.

-Why the fuck did they have to put the cutest opening scenes in just before they fucking ripped my heart out fuck.  

-The flowers =my everything?? JUST FINISH ME OFF WHY DON’T YOU

-Kanna and Saikawa are so sweet throughout this entire thing omg 。゚(*´□`)゚。

-Kobayshi’s just chilling enjoying a day off finally and feeling peaceful and then they had to twist that fucking knife fuck

-I tried and failed to hold it together when Kobayashi hears that Tohru left.  Just the way she pauses and doesn’t know what to do and her lil sad face and you can just *tell*  this has absolutely GUTTED her that shit took three years off my lifespan.

-My big gay baby ass cried p much the entire montage when Tohru isn’t there that’s one of the most devastating scenes I’ve witnessed in any medium in a long damn while and is like real-life familiar to me a bit and just.  Holy.  Shit.

-But like props yo Kobayashi’s single mom-ing it up she’s gonna get shit done whatever way she has to

-But it still killed me because holy shit she has takeout because she works late af and doesn’t have time to cook for them

-THE MUG SHE DROPS that hurt me why would they do this to me she’s rushing so much to get ready and get Kanna up

-Taught Kanna to use the rice cooker because she won’t be home

-Kanna has to stay at Saikawa’s because mom’s working OUCH

-And Kanna misses her dragon mom I’m crying

- The way the house is so messy oh no Kobayashi you poor depressed lesbian I feel u bb been there, done that, bought that t-shirt

-Takiya is the real MVP lookin out for his fellow queer bestie, noticin’ something’s wrong, u go A+ bestie

-The way she runs when Tohru comes back omfg


-Like damn Kobayashi woke the fuck up and told off Tohru’s big bad dragon dad U GO BB

-Also what the fuck did he do to her face or whatever??

-Tohru’s face when he does that shit to Kobayashi.  Is.  PRIME.  I literally screamed OH SHIIIIIIIIT IT’S. ABOUT. TO. GO. DOWN.

-Tiny dragon daughter flying her mom to the other dimension to go get back her dragon mom my heart ❤❤❤

-Kanna’s the other real MVP she’s taking care of her mom, giving her the down low on dragon politics, telling her where Tohru is, flying her around.

-Kanna is the prettiest dragon look at those lil feathery angel wings angel dragon daughter ☆~☆~☆~☆

-And then Kobayashi’s measured conflict resolution is life and the way she talks about difference was cool af and just quintessentially her.  Diplomatic as fuck.

-The way Tohru like tackles her added the three years back onto my life plus one and gave me clear skin and watered my crops and paid off my student loans and bestowed upon me the most voluminous hair yo.




-Has she like called them?  Warned them at all?  I hope not I hope she just turns the fuck up and goes “Sup motherfuckers, haven’t seen you in a year.  You have a daughter in law and a granddaughter now you will love them as I do.  Don’t ask about the tail.  Or do.  Depends on whether it’ll give you an aneurism or not.”

-I both want to fic it and see it in-ep animated I’ve heard second season is a thing or is that wrong?  

-I’ll watch this episode over and over for the next 20 years.

-And fic it

-And cosplay it

-And protect it

Jungkook POV

We ran through the woods until we reached our small slightly dampened temporary house, fury and betrayal made my blood boil to the point of I could feel my face burning red with anger. How could Jimin just dispose of us like that? After everything I’d given him. I tore the front door off its hinges as I entered the house and immediately Yoongi gripped on to my shoulder, turning me to face him.

“Come on Jungkook, you would’ve done the same. Y/N will speak to him and he’ll come around soon enough…” Yoongi tried to reason with my underlying rage as Hoseok picked up the door that was now lying on the ground, but it wasn’t enough.

“I would have at least entertained the idea. He’s got no place as alpha, he’s just a fucking kid.” I spat viciously, quickly pulling myself away from Yoongi.

“He’s the same age as you Jungkook, now I know that-”

“Well he needs to fucking act it.” I turned around jogged upstairs, removing myself from the situation at hand before I blew up in his face. I needed to pack a bag and get away for a while, hopefully Y/N would agree to coming with me. I desperately wanted to escape the chaotic bullshit, and she would be the perfect company, she unknowingly made my life much more bearable. I don’t know what I’d do without her.

Bottom: “Rock Island GP7R 4508 at the Rocket House about 47th Street, Chicago, Illinois on an unknown day in April 1975, photo by S. Downey, Chuck Zeiler collection. Built in July 1952 as CRI&P 1260 ( c/n 16469 ) on EMD Order 5136, it was rebuilt sometime in early 1975 to GP7R 4508. By early 1975, the Rock Island could no longer pay its bills, and petitioned the backruptcy courts for reorganization and protection from creditors on March 17, 1975. Federal Judge Frank McGarr appointed as trustee William M. Gibbons, who promptly appointed John W. Ingram as president and CEO. One of Ingram’s first actions was to announce a new paint scheme and image, and this may or may not be the first locomotive to wear that New Image paint. It later became C&NW 4162.”

Buncha Mushy Headcanons

* The ninja always group hug at the end of any battle, no matter how small or easy.

* Lloyd snuggles up to everyone.
Mostly Kai and Nya.

* Cole loves to randomly give people random back hugs and picks them up when he does.

* Zane loves holding hands. He doesn’t mind who as much as the touch of his hands against others.

* Nya hates tight hugs, but sometimes when she feels down, she needs to tightly hug someone else. The candidates for this are usually Kai, Lloyd, or Jay.

* Wu actually yearns for hugs but keeps it to himself.

* Jay loves to jump onto the backs of the ninja randomly and just hugs them. Lloyd often does this as well. (Since they’re both so smol)

* Kai and Nya have an “ awkward sibling hug ” but when they do it, it’s usually over something heart wrenching.

* Cole’s hugs are big and welcoming, but he sometimes hugs people for an awkward amount of time. (Mostly because he’s taking the time to appreciate feeling things again.)

* Garmadon never liked showing public affection even towards Misako, but he always kisses Lloyd’s and Misako’s cheek at least 4 times a day. (Mostly when no one else is looking)

* As a kid, Morro loved hugging Wu all the time. This was the only real time where Morro or Wu received or gave any display of affection.

* Lloyd oftened cries from p/tsd and traumatizing stuff so the ninja always make a big blanket fort, gather a bunch of comedy movies, and eat snacks while keeping Lloyd company as long as he wanted.

* Kai is embarrassed about recieveing hugs, but secretly enjoys them immensely. Same thing goes with kisses.

* Even as a ghost, everyone still hugged Cole.

* Whenever Zane feels a bit lonely, he hugs himself as if Pixal was there in front of him.

* The ninja sometimes form a “ protection circle ” around Lloyd by holding each other’s hands and letting Lloyd stay in the middle.

* Zane kisses the scars or wounds the ninja get while on missions or training.
