Ik waiting for Saturday to swing around so I can absorb all dem spoilers ughhh the wait feels too long. I'm predicting Erza gets used as Jellal's Historia during the near end of the battle (after Jellal has given a brutal beating to Neinhart's ass) and even though he knows it's not really her he breaks inside at the thought of hurting her again like he did in the past. And then Neinhart would resurrect the memory of her in the bind snake and he'd just fall and can't watch (1/2)
BUT THEN Jellal would hear the faint sound of her voice from their mental connection and is whispers ‘I am here for you…’ and Jellal goes up and Neinhart’s like “no wait is he actually going to attack her?’ BUT really he breaks her free of the bind snake, and Erza’s apparition just smiles and kisses his cheek and he’s crying whispering ‘thank you’ and then he Grand Chariot’s Neinhart’s ass as Erza fades away. When Erza is later healed they just take a moment to hold each other, “we’re okay.”
what about that time when erza shrinked and imagined people's reaction to her size and after Jellal said "I'm not into little girls" Mest suddenly appeared looking kinda excited
I have many things I want to say, but I’ll keep it short and brief.
Erza’s imagination - sorry but the imagination of a girl over exaggerating a hypothetical situation does not count as an actual characterization.
The first time Mashima made that joke - and honestly, it should have come off as a shock considering he NEVER made ANY hints as to Mest being a pedophile ever. You know the characters who have been hinted at liking younger girls? Macao, Wakaba, Chapati, and Warren. Don’t believe me?
Some people may argue that Warren’s moment is no different from Mest’s in the current chapter. But that is wrong. Because guess what. Mest may have blushed, but he didn’t blow steam from his nose, sweat, shake, or go all heart eyed on girls way too young for him. And btw, Warren is confirmed 30.
It was Mashima’s attempt at making fun of the misconception - which, unfortunately, only fueled it.
It should not have been included in the first place because even though it was one panel, it was one “joke” it shouldn’t have been made into one. It fueled the misconception and I - along with a good portion of this fandom - fell for it. Not to mention it makes light of actual pedophilia, fuels the gross pedo shippers, and is borderline offensive.
ARE YOU KIDDING I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT GAIUS ok but seriously he’s really hot. uhhh is that a reasonable answer? no?? He’s like…this giant ass fucking dweeb when you get to know him. He doesn’t know how to use his fuckin cell phone while leia types in entirely emojis (ok but even ROWEN is better at it than him) HE CAN’T EAT SPICY FOOD LIKE YOU GIANT FUCKING NERD??? he goes shopping with Elize BC HE USED TO DO THAT WITH KARLA *screaming* he ate ice cream in a short sleeve shirt in winter in kanbalar?? (probably bc he ate spicy food) listen I love Gaius ok ALSO HE DYED HIS SPARE COAT BLUE??? NERD ALERT
Why I don’t
I….I love Gaius… Hmm if I had to find a negative part of him I’d probably say #1 Gaius wtf yo uwANT TO BECOME GOD STOP THAT YOU NERD #2 the reason he wants to become god is because he’s all like “everyone has to become strong” and I’m like “yikes sorry Gaius not everyone is strong” and #3 he’s like SACRIFICE THE ELYMPIONS LIKE GAIUS CHILL basically #4 Gaius has 0 amount of chill in Xillia 1. After watching some battle quotes and skits from Xillia 2 I can conclude he has absolutely 0 chill in Xillia 2 as well.
Favorite episode (scene if movie)
All of them I love him so much. Gaius in skits are like the fucking best. Gaius is the best. Also GAIUS’S FINAL BOSS FORM HONHONHON (I like shirtless Gaius)
Well I’ll just say he’s more fun in Xillia 2 bc he’s playable and says giant nerd things
GOD I CAN’T PICK??? Probably “Naughty children must atone for their sins in the Bear Cube.”
HAVE YOU SEEN HIS FINAL BOSS OUTFIT???????
Gaius and Wingul sitting in a tree f-u-c-k-i-n-g
GAIUS AND KARLA *gross sobbing* listen to me Gaius needs to spend some quality time with his sister who is also my wife
Gaius has an obsession with bears. Don’t stop me. This is canon. Bear Cube is canon. OH but an even better one honestly. Any time Karla got pissed at Gaius he’d get her a teddy bear. He did this when they were kids and again as adults. Her room is full of teddy bears. So many teddy bears.
What’s an unpopular opinion of mine about Gaius? That I like him in Xillia 1? I don’t ship him with like anyone other than Wingul tbh. He’s super fucking gay so I can’t ship him with Muzet. That’s like basically a notp for multiple reasons (also I hc Muzet as aromantic pansexual sooo)
I WANT GAIUS AND KARLA TO MEET UP AGAIN IN GAME WHY DIDN’T THIS HAPPEN I’M THE SALTIEST SALT OVER THIS I LOVE THEM BOTH AND SEEING THEM INTERACT WOULD BE FUCKING BEAUTIFUL
Let Gaius Live 2kForever. Seriously, some of those fractured dimensions man. I’m like “nah Gaius” also kind of Gaius but more of Karla? I’d cry if Karla died (also bc Gaius would be really upset over it as shown in that one fractured dimension) scratch that I did cry when Karla died in that one fractured dimension and then ran to Kanbalar to find her and make sure she was okay
5 words to best describe them
0 Chill Nerd Big Brother
My nickname for them
BEAR KING (that is my tag for him on my gaming blog)
Not to bug you but I was just wondering why you don't want Erza to have been with Crime Sorciere?
I was really contemplating on whether or not I should answer this, but due to the recent spoilers I figured it would be appropriate.
To make things simple, it’s incredibly ooc, it sells both characters short, fuels the fandom’s ship obsessed complex, and in a way it’s not interesting.
Erza literally has no right to join Crime Sorciere. It’s a guild for fugitives to take down dark guilds. She is someone who “walks in the light” as Jellal put it. Her joining would make the guild lose it’s purpose.
Not to mention, why would Jellal even let her join in the first place if she wanted to? He wouldn’t let her, and anyone who thinks he would is ignoring his current mental and emotional state - he’s strong but he cares too much about Erza to let her downgrade herself to be with them. He wouldn’t allow it. He wants Erza to go off on her own, to grow and live her own life, no way in hell would he willingly let her join the guild.
They are their own people. There is so much that can be done with them. I don’t mind them accidentally meeting up once or twice in the course of one year, but joining the guild? No.
Jellal is focused on Zeref and getting rid of the dark guilds. And so much could have been done with Erza’s character to give her some much needed development - a knight, a wizard saint, off with Kagura, Millianna, Sho, and Wally - ANYTHING other than being with Jellal.
You may think it’s easy having Jellal and Erza be your favorites in FT and Jerza being your ultimate OTP but it’s not when there are only a few people who you can honestly say have an interpretation you agree with. If Jellal isn’t being passive aggressively hated on for the stupidest reasons, he’s treated like a pushover and a bad character when I say he’s one of Mashima’s most well developed. If Erza isn’t being treated like a god where you worship the ground she walks on, she’s hated on badly. Her hate always relates to her being “too overpowered” when she’s fighting or “too weak” if she has a moment with Jellal. It sucks because they are always related back to each other. I want to see the fandom appreciate their separate development that had nothing to do with each other. I want to see the fandom appreciate how far their relationship has come. But no, that’s too much to ask for. All I see are people being excited about the end result, and no one realizing how flawed the process by which the result happened is.
Others can add theirs later. My favorites are Kratos, Flynn, and Richter. Like as far as ultimate favorites are concerned. But then there’s so many that are very close behind that, I can’t list all of them.
its not acceptable that trump is happy and u arent
r u suggesting I set him on fire so I’m happy and he’s not bc I’m not above that
Mostly I’m just tired I don’t have a lot of energy and I think I know why BUT I did laundry and made breakfast this morning along with cleaning a tiny bit of my room and I think that has to count for something….right?
also good thing is that when I’m starting school next week I only have one class so I don’t need to keep up a ton of energy just enough for the one class!!!
Gives nose/forehead kisses: Oh my god Jellal Gets jealous the most: Neither one really gets jealous, though Erza does have a teeny overprotective side Picks the other up from the bar when they’re too drunk to drive: Oh my god Jellal picking Erza up from the guild and laying her down on the bed and tucking her in and giving her a peck on the cheek and just leave me here to die. Takes care of on sick days: They both would take care of each other, though Jellal had a tendency to get sick more often so Erza will take care of him more often. Drags the other person out into the water on beach day: ERZA DO NOT TEST ME ON THIS Gives unprompted massages: Erza omfg though Jellal can give a pretty mean massage too. Drives/rides shotgun: Jellal usually drives Brings the other lunch at work: Erza usually drops by the Magic Council without notice everyday tbh so this would be her Tries to start role-playing in bed:E R Z A Embarrassingly drunk dancer: J E L L A L Still cries watching Titanic: Oh my god Erza would and Jellal would be so shocked because he totally would not have expected it Firmly believes in couples costumes: Erza no ifs ands or buts Breaks the expensive gift rule during Christmas: oh my god Jellal Makes the other eat breakfast: I can see grumpy Jellal wanting to get to work and Erza goes all “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” on him Remembers anniversaries: they both do, but Jellal sometimes will keep quiet about it because he’ll have something super special planned for later on Brings up having kids: Erza
I’m just going to assume you want me to answer all these questions even if I have no idea what to tell you so here goes
1: What inspired you to write the fic this way?
Uhhh inspiration for Sitcom AU? Just in general bc tbh that’s essentially my normal writing style I would suppose. I do try to make it more comedic than anything else as I do write angst occasionally. I’m usually told I’m a funny person so I guess that kind of shows in my writing? As for actual idea I just decided I wanted a sitcom au for tales after RPing on Twitter
2: What scene did you first put down?
There is actually a scene from wayyyy back when of Lloyd and Colette and Kratos dealing with Guy and Luke crying however that got kind of scrapped as I had no idea where the fuck I was going with the plot
3: What’s your favorite line of narration?
Tbh so far I think my favorite is Richter just describing the bake sale fight
4: What’s your favorite line of dialogue?
Ahhh lord. I do love “Kevin please that’s my kidney.” and Edna and Elle calling Julius “Mr. Glasses Man.”
5: What part was hardest to write?
6: What makes this fic special or different from all your other fics?
This is my first multi-chapter actually decent crack fic. Like all of those. It’s my first crack fic and it’s my first multi-chapter fic that isn’t shitty as all fuck
7: Where did the title come from?
I’m uncreative as shit with titles
8: Did any real people or events inspire any part of it?
*stares at @pteradactylicious and @akireiserika* Honestly a bunch of this was because of Twitter RPing and Guy and Richard trying on dresses together and next thing you know they’re married and this is a thing. Road Trip (which is an upcoming chapter) is based very loosely on the horror movie Starve (the beginning idea at least) and because of my own recent roadtrip to South Carolina (we’re making another one tomorrow). Ah I should mention in Babysitting, they were watching Inside Out which is also influencing Roadtrip. As for the Fluri month chapters the first one (Interruptions) is based on a McMillan and Wife episode I watched the other day where he tried to propose at breakfast and she cared more about her food than his proposal (wow this is a long answer sorry)
9: Were there any alternate versions of this fic?
There’s really not as this thing is what it is. There is a possible side project based more on the movie Starve that would be a gorey horror-y Judith dying-y fic
10: Why did you choose this pairing for this particular story?
You’d have to be more specific but there is a reason everyone is in whatever relationship they’re in. Whether bc I personally ship it (ex. Sunshine Cupcake, Science Richass, Fluri) or because of someone else (ex. Royally Fucked/Royally Fucked Richass, Jade/Malik)
11: What do you like best about this fic?
*heavy sigh* I usually hate my writing but I do like writing interactions between certain characters
12: What do you like least about this fic?
I hate my writing as a general rule BUT I’ll tell you what I hate the most. It’s ruined me. I literally mix up tales games so often because I’ve written interactions between characters. Graces and Abyss are the biggest offenders of this but Xillia and Zestiria weirdly are merging as well
13: What music did you listen to, if any, to get in the mood for writing this story? Or if you didn’t listen to anything, what do you think readers should listen to to accompany us while reading?
I mean listen to anything friendos. Here’s the thing. My iPod is a mess of WW and SS Zelda music, Pirates of the Caribbean music, JPOP, rock music, whatever the fuck I like. and I just put it on shuffle and listen to it in the background as I’m writing
14: Is there anything you wanted readers to learn from reading this fic?
Simply that you better say goodbye to your life as you know it because this fic will fucking ruin you
IGNORING ALL THE INCREDIBLY OOC BULL IN THE TAGS, JERZA IS SO BEAUTIFUL like honestly the symbolism of the pairing is so powerful??? It’s acknowledging the wrong you did, moving forward, forgiveness, passion, unconditional love, doing the right thing (Jellal turning himself in, and Erza letting him go), giving each other the will to live and move on - they are literally each other’s lights. I hate it when people say “oh man they’re so stagnant” um no??? lmao??? 416 is my favorite moment between them. Jellal was always the depressed one, always down, not knowing what to do, always pulling himself back while believing he didn’t deserve anything good. In 416 he gave Erza the will to move on. He reminded her of that light. He was finally the light to her than she was to him many times before. They’ve got this beautiful faith in each other that even if they’re a million miles apart they’re still connected. They give each other light, life, hope, and happiness that no one else really can. They’re relationship is already established. I can’t wait for the day Jellal kisses Erza without pushing her away because THAT is the day he will finally be able to accept himself and accept that happiness he has denied for so long.
Okay but Jellal is especially angry because when he was little Erza was tortured and he could never save her in time and she lost her eye AND NOW he feels it all coming back to him because time and time again she's the one guiding him into the light, and now that he's finally tired of running away and finally being able to accept himself she's being torn away from him and he can't do anything about it and it's just ohmygod
FUCK OK I SAW A POST EARLIER ABOUT HOW JELLAL’S ANGER SEEMED STRANGE AND I WANTED TO DIRECT THEM TO THIS MESSAGE LIKE GOD!!! GOD!!! 100% THIS TIME FOR DEATH LMFAO
Yes, I read your tags and the post after it. I understood that you had your doubts on whether that theory was true or not, and that you found it pathetic and hilarious eitherways. The point of my message was to inform you that the theory was wrong, and nah, it's nowhere near being in-character. Stop treating the idea of Sasuke not giving a shit about Sakura as a fact. Sasuke's feelings towards Sakura were hinted at in the manga, you, and a lot of people, might deny that, or simply not see it...
ok. yeah. totally loved her. sorry i must have missed it the entire time sasuke mentally and emotionally tormented her for years on end and came off as the most aro/ace character in existence. yeah sure. sorry i missed it anon.
Okay I’m on my iPod because I don’t feel like getting out my laptop. I’m probably going to forget something.
Gon - Gon with the Wind. He and White Hair are Brotp. He’s probably the main character and he should be a dancer.
Killua- Did I spell that right? Killia? Kill u? He’ll probably kill you. He gets himself covered in blood and still manages to look cute as a button. He has a gambling problem. And probably some angst problems. He likes making the little :3 face. He does not like his older brother.
Mr. Glasses Guy- Forreal idk who this guy is except that he wears sunglasses and is usually seen with Gon and He’s Going To Kill You.
Kuropika- I think I spelled that one right. He can be a bit of a brat and he looks like a male Colette.
Plot: probably serious shit and the magic of friendship idk bro I didn’t sleep last night and I’m getting tired again.
