okay so I’m kinda scared leo’s reunion with the rest of the seven will be off the page like it’ll just be mentioned in passing, i know they’re not the main characters anymore but I really want to see the reunions, especially leo and piper I mean we never got a percy- grover reunion either
That awkward moment when you remember that touka and saiko are at the same age.
i’m sorry but for me, saiko will always have 15 years old 😂 it’s funny bc while touka is acting like a grown woman — getting married, waiting for a child… saiko is the total opposite.
touka literally had to be an adult when she was only a child, to take care of herself and ayato, i think somehow every ghoul is forced to mature at a young age due to the circumstances in which they are raised (hinami can be an exception since she was very spoiled by her parents and they tried to give her more of a human life..), while saiko lived with her family until they sent her to the academy and haise’s overprotection wasn’t very helpful either, so it’s very understandable that she doesn’t really act? like an “adult” since her life in general was pretty good compared to toukachan. in fact, i love that right now ishida is putting her in a situation in where she can’t act like “the child” anymore and has to take care of the others as well, she saved urie and now she wants to save yoriko, she’s literally going through this moment of “rebellion” and becoming a “terrorist” and taking risks to grow a little bit more, i really like that :o
Throughout the week, Riley’s errands regarding the wedding continued and the more time she spent out, the more locals would stop her and press for details about the upcoming nuptials. Of course something like this is big news for the tiny town and it seemed that everyone wanted to be apart of it.
What was originally planned to be an intimate family thing in Jed’s own backyard turned into a Hillford Creek Spectacular held right in town square. Riley worried the towns involvement would take away from the magic of the reunion, especially since hardly any of them actually knew Jed on a personal level. Sure, maybe a few locals had surface level conversations if he ever ventured into town for groceries or to run errands but none of them - except for Cassidy - had made a real effort to befriend Jedediah.
Despite Riley’s concerns, both Jed and Rhiannon insisted that the only thing that mattered to them was that it happens and not how it happens.
It’s Topanga whom suggested they marry under the tree in which Rhiannon asked Jed to ‘come with her’, an idea Riley was more than happy to support.
Dorian pressed his knuckles against his eyes, reluctantly waking up, the sun on his face. He grunted in protest as he turned away from the window that faced him and covered his head with the sheets. He grunted again when those sheets were taken away from him, exposing his head to the brightness of the room once more.
“Such an annoying morning person,” he mumbled, but his heart warmed at the laugh that came from Chaol, his irritation fading a bit.
“Time to wake up, your majesty.”
Majesty. It had been a year since the war had ended, and they had sent Erawan back to whatever hole he had come from. Even more than a year since he had killed his father, and Aelin had announced that he was now king of Adarlan. He was not yet used to the title. It sounded strange; especially coming from Chaol, his best friend, his lover.
He turned around to look at him. Chaol was standing with his arms crossed,clothes sweaty, no doubt just back from training. Which means it was late, and he had let Dorian sleep in.
“I thought kings did as they pleased,” he said, taking in the view of his lover, his muscles that showed through the wet shirt, his brown hair damp and shining against the sun light.
“Apparently not, your majesty.” The answer was serious. A sigh escaped Dorian’s lips.
yixing wasn't in the teaser :< how do you feel about sm leaving him out once again?
honestly? HONESTLY? i’m still recklessly optimistic. me? a delusional ot9 enthusiast ex’traordinaire with some sense of profound optimism and an even stronger sense of denial!
1. sm hasn’t released any kind of official statement related to yixing’s absence from the repackage. this could be because a) they’re lazy bums and they’re considering the initial The War album absence announcement to continue onto the Power of Music repackage or B!!!) YIXING IS THE FUCKING MAIN CHARACTER AND SM IS DOING THIS FOR THE DRAMA OF IT ALL
2. yixing’s solo album got postponed. i mean this man was Ready for his second child to pop out the womb and grace the universe. but it got postponed. Why? sm is still in charge of zyx’s studio and mayHAPS they told him to postpone it a bit so that he could be a part of this repackage even if it’s in some sort of cryptic way. (i also know the other option is that they don’t want zyx’s solo album to detract from exo’s repack sales okay so don’t start with me on that and telling me i’m too dramatic. i am a virgo and fucking realistic too okay BITE ME)
3. thaad tensions regarding china and south korea relations: look, i’ve done a lot of reading and i’ve read a couple of reliable articles (like that are from actual politics focused sites) and from what i can see, the relationship between china and skorea has improved a lot. with the new president, there’s been talks about improving skorean businesses that have been impacted by the ban in china and the chinese president has been trying to cooperate in regards to the whole political skorea/usa/china vs. nkorea business too. yes, there are still tensions. china is still pissed about the thaad launch pads and the missiles. skorea still thinks china can do more in pressuring nkorea to knock it off. but from what i’ve noticed, the travel ban between china and skorea has been lifted (which can be seen with zyx traveling back and forth between china and skorea) and the general tension has eased. china isn’t throwing That Big of a hissy fit anymore and i feel like even though there are still political tensions, i don’t think it should impact the entertainment industry That Much.
4. THE BAEKXING PARALLELS OF IT ALL. OKAY THIS IS WHERE MY RECKLESS OPTIMISM COMES IN. so like in mama baekxing have always been each other’s other half (hohoho my heart) and like they’re each other’s mirrors in the respective parallel worlds that were divided by exo-m and exo-k. and i know @adoringdo has some kickass theories and basically what they’re claiming is that baekhyun is the heart of the tree of life and yixing plays a significant role in keeping the heart safe from the red force. like baekxing are Super Connected. ANYWAYS here’s why i’m recklessly optimistic: zyx has an important role in this exo universe. you don’t just get rid of a healer and sm has been planning this concept FOR YEARS. DECADES?? and i know that when the business aspect part of it gets involved (members leaving and all that) that you really can’t do anything about it and you have to deal with it, but uh… tell me. when has zyx ever threatened to leave? and uh tell me… what does sm have to gain with zyx leaving? here’s what i think: zyx is still the ace card. he’s the surprise factor that makes this repack Blow Up. look i can go on a long spiel about how the members have been too quiet about ot9 reunion especially after so long a time and how zyx has been visiting skorea way too often in the midst of a repackage to just consider him excluded and only preparing for his second solo. LOOK. I’M JUST SAYING.
anyways tl;dr - i still believe in ot9. you can’t convince me otherwise until sm literally tells me to choke when that mv drops september 5th. but istfg if i’m somehow right in the midst of all of this ridiculous ot8 propaganda, y’all owe me SEVERAL churros.
This might be a total stretch but hear me out! What if the reunion with the balloon squad is not the cause of Even’s downfall? These are the three main reasons that have lead me to believe otherwise:
1.) From what we have seen there is no real anger from either side. When Isak brings up Mikael to Even in S3 he jokingly calls him the “previous man of my life” which does not seem like something he would say if they had real issues. Also, when Even is mentioned in the balloon squad’s YouTube video the only person who seems to have a problem is Yousef. Everyone else is laughing/smiling/joking especially Mikael. While their reunion will most likely not be very ‘kose’ I think at most it will be a little tense and a little awkward, but I can’t see any real negative outcomes from it.
2.) In the trailer it is Chris who hits him with the selfie stick. In fact the balloon squad is not a part of the trailer AT ALL! (I know that does not mean much considering Even was not in Isak’s trailer but it’s something to think about.) His fall might actually relate to the girl squad. Plus the fact that he was hit with a selfie stick of all things is significant. I definitely think his downfall will have to do with either some sort of picture/video that circulates about him or something related to social media. My leading theory is that the girls will discover some old video/photo from the balloon squad that incriminates Even (im working on it haha I know it’s a big reach).
3.) It would be too obvious. The main reason we all assume the reason Even gets hurt by the balloon squad is because it’s the only viable option thus far. I know there are some holes in this theory but Julie likes to throw us off track with the obvious stuff. It has been very heavily implied that Even’s downfall will be from the balloon squad so I think the “people of my past coming back to cause trouble” would be a much too predictable trope coming from Julie. Plus from what we seen of the balloon squad and Even, neither of them really seem to be like the type to start shit.
Hey, this is Yujuan and I know I haven’t been very active lately (I know I wrote that little post a month ago) but I have been on and off tumblr for a while so I guess I’m kinda back but not back yet(?) In fact I won’t be reeeallly back until November. God I wish it was November right now. Or not.
But since it’s a holiday here and I want to do something holiday-ish before going back to work, I’m gonna rec all the One Piece fics I’ve read that I love. I know I don’t really post recs, but I noticed that there is a small amount of them in this fandom.
Most of the fics will be in gen, since I’m not really into the popular pairings like ZoSan and MarcoAce. And I’m pretty sure the LawLu ship is just setting off in One Piece time. I’ve seen a few of those around on tumblr so I guess you can check them out if you don’t like this list much. There are some pairing fics? I confess that I have some pairings that I really like. There will be some pairings that are not focus of the story. I’ll add the pairings if they are ever present.
Also, most of the WIP’s have been updated recently, so you can rest assured.
Wealth, Fame, Power. Monkey D. Luffy had come so close acquiring it all. But along the way, he lost those people most precious to him. With his crew annihilated and his goal of the One Piece put on hold, he refused to accept his lot. Scouring the globe, he found the answer to his problems in the form of a Devil Fruit User with the power to send things back in time. Taking the chance, Luffy went back in time to the start of his adventure, to try and right what was once wrong.
But his first surprise came about when he found himself staring into his own, younger, eyes.
They were so close to the end that a few of them have actually begun to think about the ever after. However, Sabo warns the Strawhat crew that one of them will not make it to the afterwards if they go to Raftel, the crew thinks. It has always been pirate king or death. Not a single one thought that the “or” could one day be “and”.
(I cried my eyes out even after the second re-read)
Summary: Luffy disappeared a day after Sabo died. Four years later he came back with a slave brand, burned into his flesh. Whatever happened to him, made Luffy view the world differently. Follow him on his journey to become the Pirate King, the freest person in the world, as snippets of his past slowly reveal itself to his crew.
Summary: The Pirate King Monkey D. Luffy didn’t come back to save the world. His only wish is to save his friends and assure their absolute happiness this time around. Even if he has to turn said world upside down while trying to achieve that. For better or for worse.
(Hopefully not your usual Time Travel AU, OP!Luffy, and general chaos and craziness that he brings into the world)
Luffy isn’t happy to be left with mountain bandits. The bandits aren’t happy either. Four years old Ace is curious, though, because it’s something new. Luffy is decidedly more happy to find that he gets to be a big brother. The world kind of doesn’t know what hit it. -Age Reversal AU. Big Brother Luffy.-
Summary: Going through life, it will become very clear that even the simplest of actions will have an effect on how a person’s life will play out. The actions made by those in Impel Down and Marineford would effect the lives of many, some that had yet to even be born.
Nevertheless, one way or another, Portgas D. Ace would either be leaving Marineford alive or he would perish among the chaos. No matter what though, Monkey D. Luffy would not be leaving Marineford alone, even if he didn’t know it yet.
Summary: To survive extinction, races changed to create what we know today as alphas, betas, and omegas. These adaptations altered the world but some things would never change.
Pirates still sailed the seas, Marines sought to capture them and maintain justice, and Monkey D. Luffy was going to become King of the Pirates. The fact that he was an omega and already mated to Ace didn’t change anything, because nothing was going to stop him from achieving his dream. Nothing.
The ASL pirates are used to being accused of crimes they didn’t commit. But when they’re accused of destroying a small village in the New World, it sends them hurtling toward a deadly confrontation with the strongest man in the world, Whitebeard. The results are not what they were expecting.
And now he was choking. Because after all the tragedies, dangers, horrors and deranged psychopaths in his life? This was going to be the way Law left the world: by choking on the complimentary water provided by some café on a New World island that was half colorful coral.
(The Debate of Subtlety and how D’s don’t know the meaning of that word if it smacked them in the face, no matter what Law thinks.)
(Straw Hats + Hearts Pirate + Revolutionary tagalongs goes to meet with a potential ally. Safe to say, chaos ensues.)
His orders are clear. Kill the creature as soon as possible and report back to the base. It’s an easy mission, Sabo’s had one like it countless times. It should be an easy kill, he’s an alpha rank vampire with four centuries of experience on his back. Nothing should complicate his task.
However, this particular case makes it infuriatingly difficult for him to follow his orders. This creature…this mutated vampire is something else, he can’t tell what it is, but somehow it seems as though he hasn’t lost his humanity just yet…
Reasons for why I want the RTD companions and/or the Ninth Doctor to meet the Twelfth Doctor:
· To call him out on his indifference to
other people’s lives.
· Also to call him out on his behaviour towards
Clara, and remind him to treat her with more respect.
· To tell him to take a bloody look in
the mirror (AKA remind him of his actions during his eleventh incarnation and
other errors in current one, like when he had the whole human race commit
genocide without them being aware of it).
· To remind him that there are other, far
more peaceful ways to sort out everything.
· Also to remind him that PEOPLE’S LIVES
MATTER.REGARDLESS OF THEIR RELATIONSHIP TO THE DOCTOR AND/OR THEIR SPECIES.
· To make him apologize to River for how
he treated her and perhaps let her out of prison considering she didn’t commit
the crime she’s in there for (I’m looking at you, Moffat. I’m looking right at
· I’d love for Martha or Donna or Rose
to yell some sense into him. I especially think a reunion with Rose would make
him put his recent actions in perspective and make him at least try to work
with his issues.
· As for the Ninth Doctor, I want him
to verbally attack the man like Danny did in series 8 (honestly, Danny was one
of the only things I liked about that season and we all know where he ended
up). Considering Nine being far closer to the events of the Time War than
Twelve, he would certainly be angry with how he turned out after just a few
· One thing I want but at the same
time don’t want is for Wilfred to come. It would be quite the eye-opener to see
Twelve after he’s “magically” solved some issue with his current tactics and
then have him turn his head and see Wilfred in the background, a look of
heartbreak in his eyes and shaking his head. It would hurt like hell, but I
honestly think it’s what we need to put the Doctor in his place.
this will probably not matter anyway since Moffat has shown little to no signs
of taking in criticism of his writing and continues to sugar-coat his Doctor’s violent
actions and the show’s general plot-holes with wibbly wobbly timey wimey….
With book 2 probably being over soon …. I want self sacrificing MC to have to stay behind to save the others! Then A time jump! And then some big mysterious way they all end up back on the island to save the world for real! A big emotional reunion ESPECIALLY with the LI they probably had to shove through the portal!
Okay what I meant in that last post was I want Solomon to show up and finally meet his son and be able to help defeat David (I personally think he deserves to be apart of this battle)
I just think it would be great for Solomon (and Sheba hopefully) to meet Aladdin and we get a nice Jehoahaz Abraham family reunion as well as Aladdin/Solomon vs David showdown because that would be really great
Also, it’d be really great if he were to see Ugo and Arba (Arba especially). And a Sheba/Arba reunion would be wonderful too
I see that face you are making. Stop looking at me like that! I assure you, my interest in this panel is purely academic. It’s meta worthy, not because Erwin clearly has no concept of invading personal space and saying strange things, but because it gives us an indication of how much time has passed from Erwin’s imprisonment until now.
Let me explain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.
Erwin took quite a beating at the hands of the Interior MP. During the courtroom scene, one eye was swollen shut and he had numerous bruises and abrasions of his cheeks and chin.
In this chapter, the majority of Erwin’s facial injuries have healed. All that remains is some discoloration along his jawline and an abrasion at the corner of his mouth. If these are the same injuries, and I assume they are, I estimate about two weeks have passed since his arrest.
This means that two weeks ago the survey corps were criminals, outlaws. The population they are now attempting to save would’ve been just as happy to see Erwin hanging from the gallows. The morning sun rising over Orvud as they begin their assault on the Flaming Chicken Titan provided Levi and the others their first clear look at Erwin’s fading injuries; a glimpse into what he experienced, a reminder of what almost happened.
