Geez, what a surprising turn of events, I could NEVER in my life see this coming. After all, Slade was ALWAYS such a gooood father to Rose…..

I’m surprisingly sarcastic today.

Whump trope:

When the antagonist/torturer asks the defiant whumpee a casual rhetorical question about themself that suggests they're about to really fuck them up.

“It was the left leg last time, right?” - The Flash

“But a man cares about his son, eh?” - Percy Jackson

“I believe you know…[produces photograph]…this person?”

“You write with your left hand, don’t you, [name]?” - one of my own

And either the whumpee is confused and has no idea why they’ve suddenly changed the subject or they realise immediately what they intend and get an ice-cold jolt of fear right through their veins.

“Don’t mess with María or she’ll knock you out !” 

I do have a thing for defiant attitudes and gals that aren’t afraid to stare back… You go girls !
