double-edge

2

Indian Tulwar, 18th or 19th Century

With curved blade (some light pitting) double-edged over a third of its length to the point and fullered along the back on each side, the forte struck on one side with a bladesmith’s mark, characteristic iron hilt decorated overall with damascened silver quatrefoils within zigzaged borders, and comprising pointed langets, button quillons, curved tapering knuckle-guard with stylised monster-head terminal, disc-shaped pommel with button finial on a rayed dome, and swelling grip. 76 cm blade.

  • Tsunade: How did your mission go?
  • Kakashi: If I tell you now, does that mean I still have to do a mission report?
  • Tsunade: Don't ask stupid questions. Of course you still need to fill out a report.
  • Kakashi: In that case… you'll know in the next couple days.
  • Tsunade: *rolling her eyes*: That report better not be a one line summary either. None of this 'we laid down the law' crap either.
  • Kakashi: I thought that one was rather clever,
  • Tsunade: Your brand of clever is not appreciated on official reports. A full report, Kakashi, or I'll assign an ANBU guard to stand over your shoulder while you write it.
  • Kakashi: Seeing as I know most of the ANBU guards, I could just talk them into writing it for me.
  • Tsunade: I don't care, just so long as I have that report on my desk, with proper mission related detail, in two days.
  • Kakashi: *sighing*: Fine… But only because you didn't beam me in the head with a paperweight.
  • Tsunade: Sorry, I threw the last one at Genma earlier today.

it's 2am and i've read everything i can get my hands on abt EU, so can i just say 1) as a media student, this would make a FANTASTIC TV show. there are ten million plotlines staring me in the face and 2) how do you think the fae's fascination with theatre would translate to TV production? still has the costumes, the glitz and glamour, but there's a lot of tech in close proximity. (I can attest that some late nights/early mornings in the studios can get hazy and discombobulated, though...)

Oh god imagine this as a show, it could be so good if they got the wonderterror of the whole place right - there’s more in the shadows than what you can see, and that’s a double-edged sword.

I think it would absolutely fascinate them as well - objectively there’s not magic at all present, but at the same time, there’s entire new worlds being made. Like the theatre, the whole is something much, much greater than the sum of the parts.  Unlike theatre, the finished show is a thing almost unrecognizable from what’s originally been filmed - it’s been put into order, clipped and touched up and made into a very different creature than the initial scenes acted out. It also has a certain allure because they don’t know how it works, can’t get close enough to try to take it apart and figure out how (and even if they could, it’s still unlikely they would be able to understand).

  • Sakura: You smell like you crawled into every dumpster between here and Suna!
  • Kakashi: Perhaps I didn't mention this, but I just got back from a mission.
  • Sakura: That's no excuse to slack off on cleanliness. Maybe you should go down the personal hygiene aisle too. There's a sale on soap; buy one, get one free.
  • Kakashi: Really? That's a good deal.
  • Sakura: No limit either.
  • Kakashi: Thanks for the tip… but I think I'll pass for now. Don't want to take away from others in desperate need of washing, you know.
  • Sakura: *rolling her eyes*: How very thoughtful of you.
  • Kakashi: You know me, always looking out for others.
  • Sakura: Right.

For the papyton thing, do crying?

#11: Crying

Kind of a long post. Less of a comic, more of a My Thoughts™


Papyrus is like the physical manifestation of optimism. That entails that he is always looking on the bright side of things. He’s sensitive to the emotions of others, but somewhat aloof with his own outside of abject enthusiasm. 

Maybe sadness to an optimist is kind of a double edged sword? (I mean I’m a huge optimist so) It’s harder to come to grips with negative emotions, but you know you need them in order to get better. There’s a place of naivety, but there’s also a place of understanding.

I think something surprising and unexpected would have to occur for him to really cry. Something tragic maybe, like losing a friend. Then the tears come before the realization.

His crying would be strangely quiet (as opposed to hid general loudness). There would be rolling tears, quivering chin, maybe a wavering breath. A self hug for reassurance. He’d be a little embarrassed but he’d be open to comfort from his friends. 

Mettaton would be a master at the Hollywood sexy tear. No facial movement, a single rolling tear, sparkling eyes. He could do it at will, whenever people need someone to look sad but beautiful. 

 That said, I’d like to think that his real, genuine crying is actually pretty messy. 

I’m talking full on leaky tears and runny nose. Smudged makeup (oh heavens the mascara!) gasps interlaced between sobs would be sniffling, perhaps a cough here or there. Maybe even hiccups if he’s really agitated. 

Mettaton would do his best to hide it. First sign of heartache, nope! He’s leaving the room. He has to go, he can’t let anyone know there’s a huge crybaby underneath that fabulous facade. Or, if he can’t leave, he bottles those pesky tears right up and expresses negativity through high intensity pettiness. 

I think time spent around Pap would help him let others in. It’d be good for him.
