whole premise of Soul Eater is based on the structure of meisters and
weapons and the partnership that goes into that. It’s easy to come
up with plenty of examples of these partnerships: standard one-to-one
pairs, or trios, or even variable meisters with multiple weapon
partners or weapons who can be wielded by any meister. Aside from
granting structure to the plot in itself, these partnerships can also
be read as unstated commentary about the dynamic of the characters
within the partnerships, their relation to each other, and (perhaps
most interestingly) their grasp on their own sense of identity.
note: I’ll be focusing primarily on the main anime in the course of
this, with only very few references to the Soul Eater Not anime and
occasional nods to details in the manga. I’m hoping this will make
it easier to follow (and easier for me to compose)!
The intoxicating scent of tobacco and illicit substances fill the dark room, thin smoke clouding the space, fading the bright flashing lights into slightly tolerable glow blending all too loudly with the club beat.
Namjoon is now far too accustomed to this environment to give two shits about it, let alone one. The women too provocative in both actions and appearance, the drinks too expensive, and the crowd too cheap.
Deep in-fucking-side of his forsaken soul, Namjoon loathes being here with every fiber of his being. But in order to be successful, he chose to surround himself with those who already are, blinded by his burning desire to get to the top.
Amidst the darkness and the obnoxious noise, he sees at the corner of his eye a familiar figure at the other end of the room. Jimin stands at the very back, his face on the verge of tears. Taehyung in front of him holds a satisfied smug, hands covering the eyes of none other than Jinnie at the very front. When he lets go of his hands, it doesn’t take long for Jinnie to confusedly scan the room and spot Namjoon who, at the moment, happens to be making out with another random woman.
Jinnie freezes and so does Namjoon. Jimin pleads to Taehyung, and Taehyung once again covers Jinnie’s eyes, whispering in the older’s ear with a smile. Jimin finally had enough and gently tugs Jinnie out of the room, the older staggering as he blindly follows. Namjoon meets Taehyung’s eyes, reading the younger mouths with a mischievous smile.
people whose fathers like them are so bizarre like back in ap senior english we had to read we were the mulvaneys and one of the discussion questions was “why do you think the father is Like That” and i said that most fathers in stories about womanhood are Like That and some braying ass stood up and called me a liar because his father LOVES him and their whole family is perfect
