cant believe my tiny baby is growing up to be such a vaguely evil-looking babe
im so proud

Imagine moving into Hell with Crowley and Juliet seeing you as a mom.

Originally posted by lossek

Many hunters would have marked you down as insane for moving into Hell with the king of it, but you saw nothing wrong with it. So what you were in love with Crowley! He never hurt you physically or mentally like some of the other douche bags that linger in your past. He was actually one of the better men you have been with, which says a lot because he wasn’t even human. Being with Crowley has been a good thing rather than bad due to how eye opening it was. Before he came along, you always saw supernatural creatures as one thing, evil. Now, some of the cruelest creatures were your bodyguards and some even your friends. Looking back at all of your previous cases, guilt engulfed your body and mind. What if they weren’t causing any harm? What if they were just trying to get by like you? What if-

“Son of a bitch!” you cursed loudly as the ground came up to break your fall. Now out of your private reverie, reality came up to greet you painfully, but anger replaced that when you saw your king laughing at you sprawled out on the concrete flooring.

Ever since you moved, Juliet had taken a very special liking to you. Instead of chewing your shoes or using your limbs as a toy, she decided that you were the one she was going to get attached to. It was like you were the mother and she was a mere pup. It was cute at first, but now it was getting annoying. Considering the fact you couldn’t see her, it was impossible to tell if she was beside you, behind you, or in front of you. Daily trips to the ground was nothing uncommon.

“Do you find this funny?” you snapped at Crowley as Juliet curled up in your lap. She was clearly too big, but that didn’t stop her from attempting to act like a lap dog.

“A little bit,” Crowley teased with a hint of a smile.

Lily Sunder Has Some Regrets/The Most Sacred Oath

I’m guessing you can’t hear me squeal over your own squeals, but I’ll just keep at it a little longer, okay? Okay. 

Man, this episode read like very good fanfiction, and while I’m disappointed Dean never found out Cas used to be a woman (although, they did have a conversation about that, so Steve gets points anyway), everything else was plain amazing. I’m actually tempted to do a recap that’s just shouting words into the void, because, seriously, that would be enough, but - okay, let me watch that thing again and then I’ll write a proper meta.


Okay.

(Deep breath.)

So, let’s get one thing out of the way: we already know why this story works so damn well, but it’s worth saying it one more time, because this is what the whole episode was about.

A human and an angel: not meant to be.

Ishim said humans are dangerous to angels, and I agree with him: if angels want to understand humans, to truly become friends with them, to live among them - well - look at what’s that done to Cas. Caring about humans is, apparently, different than caring about another angel; it forces you to give up something deep inside yourself. You become - weaker, unhappy. Doubt-ridden. Trapped between two worlds, and fit for neither. And as for humans - if they truly wish to get closer to angels - to speak their language, to know enough about their magic and weapons to be able help them when they’re in trouble or hurt - that literally costs them their souls.

It’s a tragedy. It’s doomed.

But, of course, it’s not completely hopeless. What would be the point of writing a love story if you know from the start nothing can never happen at all? No - love can conquer all, and this episode dangled it in front of us - the angel who chose humanity, who tried to defend the person he loved from his own brothers, and the human who was fascinated with angels and knew enough about them to make it work.

(They had a daughter, sort of, and let’s cry about that for the rest of eternity, because can you see it? Dean loves kids, and -)

Anyway. We’ve known for a while that angels - I mean, the price Cas paid for his loyalty to the Winchesters (his love for Dean) - that’s harrowing. But this idea that humans need to sacrifice their soul to become closer to angels - thanks for that, Steve. I’m fine.

And surely, at this point, there is no other way this could end? Because what Sam and Cas share - yeah, that’s what friendship looks like, but Dean and Cas - right. And so Cas went and said it (“You mean too much to me.”) and Dean just holed up in his room for the rest of the week? He never said a word to Cas? And, Jesus, Cas thinks Dean’s angry? At him? I’m glad this, at least, was spelled out clearly, because apparently some people still don’t get it and read Dean’s emotions at face value and no, Dean was not angry - he was worried out of his damn mind, and he’s got reason to be, because Cas still doesn’t fucking get it: “I don’t regret what I did, even if it costs me my life”.

The idiot - the useless, fucking idiot.

(“Smelly. Dirty. Twice the worry about getting ganked.”)

I’m not much of a Star Wars fan, but the whole Kylo Ren discourse on tumblr is driving me nuts. I genuinely do not understand how redemption arcs are “problematic”. I thought the whole point of redemption arcs was - you needn’t follow what you were following till now, you can always *choose* to be good and kind. That seems like a positive message to me! [1]

I mean weren’t everyone cheering how Loki became a good guy in Ragnarok? Aren’t we supposed to believe that Charles Xavier is strong because he sees the ‘goodness; not just pain and anger’ in Magneto? (Both Loki and Magneto has tried to do something akin to genocide in the cinematic universes.) Or do we accept redemption arcs only if it is played out by good looking actors like Tom Hiddleston or Michael Fassbender? Perhaps, it is the fact that the supposedly Good Counterpart of Evil Villain, who has to believe in the villain’s goodnesss is not a male (Rey instead of Thor/Charles)? A villain trying to do good would never be a bad story for me. Either it shows that how easy it is for us to hurt others in doing something that we consider essential or good; or it shows that even after doing horrible things, we have the capability to change. So, it teaches us to be cautious of our actions or to reconsider our path. In what universe is that lesson bad? If only tumblr got the idea that it is okay to hate a character without providing a faux social justice reason for why the character must be hated; it is okay to hate a storyline because you didn’t want the storyline to go that way; it is okay to hate a ship simply because you don’t like it; then we would all be saved from useless discourse.

THANK YOU that’s like 100% the point and the fact that people need that spelled out these days is just… like… THESE ARE MOVIES MADE ALSO FOR KIDS AND PRODUCED BY GODDAMNED DISNEY BEHIND MARVEL OR LUCASFILMS OR WHATEVER AND PEOPLE ASSUME THE REDEMPTION ARC IS NOT A THING? like it’s basic storytelling for that kind of narration and it’s driving me really goddamned fucking nuts, especially because if you frame this entire discourse as wanting to be a social justice person and wanting to do **activism**, your **activism** can’t just exclude the kylo rens of the world because by excluding the kylo rens you keep on fueling the system that creates them, and the fact that they can’t seem to conceive that someone might want to be kind to them and scream that rey wanting to do that is ooc it’s just… ew…. D: and the fact that if they’re good looking it’s usually more accepted that they change sides is just… all kinds of nope -__-

and yeah exactly like can we just dislike characters BECAUSE WE DO instead of having to find a social justice reason at all costs? who. cares. like. who cares. dislike someone all you like you don’t need a politics justifications to not like them. no one ever did. tumblr needs to fucking stop tbh

11/6/17

i feel like i almost am at a disadvantage in the industry because i don’t wanna participate in the bullshit. like maybe if i was willing to start drama with people and be corny and fucking PLOT ways to get famous i would have a wider audience and therefore more people would listen to my music. maybe i just believe that what happened with i hate u i love u could happen to me again… but what if it doesn’t? most people don’t have an accidental hit song in their life, why should i get to have multiple? i want to believe that my music is good enough to get me where i need to go but lately, watching SHITTY FUCKING PEOPLE who release music around the same times as me get more plays immediately and more exposure on their music bc of unethically gained/undeserved fame is very discouraging. there is one person in particular who has done things to me personally (and to many others) that are so fucking heartless and evil… and i’m watching this person deceive the world and have so many people thinking they’re sweet and just the exact opposite of what this person truly is. it hurts me to watch! i guess i have to just not let it get to me but damn… i try to see the good in everyone but no matter how many times i gave this person a chance and tried to forgive them, they kept proving to me that they are just evil. i’ve never met someone with such terrible intentions in life and such an ability to lie blatantly all the time. i’m really trying as hard as i can to just look past it but this person seems to pop up everywhere and their music is getting a lot of exposure… shitty people can be so successful it’s actually crazy. the world has me fucked up. okay goodbye i need to stop focusing on this!

The Signs According to Books 1-3 of the Zodiac series

Aries: JUST. SO. AGGRESSIVE. 

Taurus: Is probably always right. The cool big sister of the zodiac. 

Gemini: 10/10 would invite to a party.

Cancer: Can’t catch a break. Ever. As in, the universe will probably implode before they catch a break. 

Leo: Cares too damn much. Biggest strength, bigger weakness. Impossible not to like; if they stabbed you, you’d apologize for getting blood on their knife-level likeable. 

Virgo: idk, man? Romina Russell was trying so hard not to self-insert, it’s almost painful. Probably 👍🏽 

Libra: A f*cking delight. Coolest people you will ever meet. Also kind, smart af, adventurous, kinda slutty (and soooo good at it 😉). Hands down the best.

Scorpio: Looks like it’s evil. Walks like it’s evil. Quacks like it’s evil. Shockingly un-evil. Low key badass who you probably want on your side when the going gets rough. 

Sagittarius: Pretty and popular, but has no filter. You will never have to question how they feel about you. 

Capricorn: The Gandalf of the zodiac. The Dumbledore books 1-6 of the zodiac. Listen for they are wise. Human personification of cuddling up next to a fireplace with a blanket and cocoa on a cold winter’s night. 

Aquarius: The root of all evil. Everything that has ever or will ever be seductive. A dream you could get lost in. Knows you better than you know yourself. 

Pisces: Kind. Selfless. Good. Cinnamon roll. Literally too pure for this world–it will probably get them killed. 

Ophiuchus: Oh, you poor thing

anonymous asked:

Come now, Julia, you really think you've done nothing wrong? Sam & Caitriona disagree. They've been shown what you, Lauren & Jess have said about them, about Tony & Mackenzie. There's nothing wrong with calling Tony Cait's PA, purse holder, gay, or Mackenzie an attention seeking babywhore? You made a big mistake by trying to garner pity instead of taking responsibility for your actions. Shipping is fine, insulting Sam, Cait, Tony, Mackenzie isn't. Come clean to your followers about our messages.

and you think your hands are totally clean, right? shippers have done everything wrong but you’ve been nothing but the perfect angel of a fan, right? you ask me to own up to my actions. Fine. I apologized for what I said about Mackenzie and I deleted the post and that was months ago. What more do you want me to do? Calling Tony Cait’s PA is not an insult, nor is calling him her purse holder since that’s literally what he does. He holds her purse and her jacket. Nor is guessing that he might be gay when everything he’s shown me says he might be. If he’s not, well then I’m terribly sorry for assuming such awful things about a person (note the HEAVY sarcasm. apparently being gay is an awful thing in your mind. I’d rather choose to accept everyone for who they are). 

The only thing, in my mind, that I’m guilty of is maybe being too harsh on asshole anons, like yourself. AND YES I am calling you what you are - an asshole. Deal with it. Call me a rude bitch some more, I can’t wait to read that. Maybe I’m guilty of being too quick to judge, being a bit too passive aggressive and sarcastic at times. God forgive me, I’m a human being, much like yourself. I think. I’m allowed to have feelings. I’m allowed to express said feelings and opinions ON MY BLOG without the fear of having my job threatened. 

YOU are the ones coming to harass shippers. YOU are the ones mining for information about us and Sam and Cait. YOU are the ones who brought Tony and Mackenzie and Abbie and every other random anonymous person into the spotlight. YOU. Not shippers, antis. So I’m really terribly sorry we weren’t nice to the people you dragged into this mess. But I am not sorry for shipping. I am not sorry for finding joy in Sam and Cait, both separately and together, and I am not sorry for wanting to believe two people are in love. How dare I, right? Had I known it would end in me writing a police report, I’d probably never have started shipping.

All of you, every single “person” who considers yourself an anti, has crossed a line so many times at this point it’s a fucking miracle karma hasn’t bitten you in the ass in more ways than one. You have stalked, harassed, doxed, threatened and abused shippers for years. Years. I highly suggest you take a good hard look in the mirror before you preach one more time about how shippers are the evil ones in this fandom. The lack of self-awareness in this fandom is absolutely mind boggling. 

And with that, I’m closing my anons. Believe me, this is not what I want to do but for my own sanity I have to for a bit. So anything more you want to tell me, you’re going to have to do it with a username attached. I dare any of you to send me an ounce of this bullshit with your username attached to it. 

Lawlight + Tropes

Another tropes combo. This time, Death Note’s handcuff duo, L Lawliet & Light Yagami.

1. Adorkable: 

Light His usual charm can sometimes come across as this.

L  During the few times where he’s not giving the Kira case his undivided attention, he’s this.

2. Allergic to Routine:

Light Now if Light could have found some other intellectually engaging hobby the entire plot probably would not have happened.

L Very easily bored, and even prolongs the Kira case just for the rush.

3. Ambiguous Disorder:

Light  He’s undeniably insane, but it’s never clarified where exactly it comes from. Between his monstrous god complex, inability to cope with any perceived evil, and constant manic laughter, there’s definitely something wrong with him; that’s all without even discussing the fact that he picks up mass-murder like a new, exciting hobby. For the record, Word of God states that the reason Light went off the deep end was because he was a perfectionist and couldn’t reconcile that with the fact that he had unintentionally murdered someone except through Insane Troll Logic. Given all of this, it’s very likely he has Narcissistic Personality Disorder and some symptoms of sociopathy.

L He has odd mannerisms and shows zero interest in confiding in others or romantic relationships despite being a Chessmaster who is very good in manipulating facts and people. If anything, L displays most of the characteristics of schizoid personality disorder.

4. Anti Hero:

Light The TV Drama puts him here during the first few episodes as an Unscrupulous Hero, as he used the Death Note to protect others at that time

L  Not exactly your ideal type of hero. While he does try to capture Kira because he’s a murderer, his main motivation is because he sees Kira as a challenge and willfully prolongs the case, endangering countless lives in the process, simply to have more fun with him. Furthermore, he strongly detests physical contact with anyone and is close to emotionally dead. As far as his morality is concerned, he is willing to achieve the good goal of capturing Kira (Light) with evil means, such as kidnapping, not preventing murder, invasion of privacy and torture.

5. Awesome McCoolname:

Light “Light” is written with the kanji for “moon” and “Yagami” is written with the kanji for “night” and “god”.

L: The Gothic font helps

6. Awesomeness by Analysis:

Light • This is his forte; quite a lot of his scenes involve a running inner dialogue where the audience hears him analyzing the scene around him, taking stock of his circumstances and options, and planning his next move. And of course after his genius plans come to fruition, he has to go over them in detail so that the audience has a chance to figure out what exactly just happened.

L  In the second episode, L is able to deduce several different things about Kira from one televised broadcast. Throughout the show, L is also shown assessing situations, analyzing happenings and their effects, and planning his next move.

7. Badass Bookworm:

Light • He’s the top ranked student in the country and his room is filled with books - though he’s only interested in one book in particular.

L He’s a brilliant detective, and quite able to hold his own in the occasional fistfight with Light.

8. Batman Gambit:

Light He’s a master at manipulation. His entire period of amnesia and what followed is a clear example.

L  The Do Not Adjust Your Set one being only his first in the series. He was counting on Kira’s ego being bigger than his reason.

9. Big Good/Big Bad:

Light Of the whole story. While he is the protagonist of the series, his use of the Death Note quickly turns him into a power-hungry maniac whose murders become the all-encompassing threat to L and the Japanese Task Force and the hunt for him proves the challenge of the work.

L He fulfills this role as the one heading the Task Force, despite being an Anti-Hero.

10. Bishonen:

Light Very much so. Though his features do coarsen a bit as the series progresses as he becomes older and nastier.

L What with the odd mannerisms and dark bags under his eyes, L was intended to be an inversion or aversion of this trope. The legions of fangirls he has don’t see it that way, though…

  • The contrast between Light and L (and their respective fangirls) are even lampshaded a bit in Episode 9, when they’re giving a university entrance speech together:

Girl 1: I sure like the guy on the right (L).

Girl 2: What–?! You’re weird. Most people would choose the one on the left (Light).

11. Big Sleep:

Light In the anime, at least. When he was killed by Ryuk in front of the police in the manga, he Dies Wide Open.

L When he dies in the episode “Silence”.

12. Brainy Brunette:

Light A brown-haired Evil Genius.

L Subverted. His hair is more black than brown, but he’s still a Smart Guy.

13. Brilliant but Lazy:

Light In the first volume of the manga it seems people think he’s this-Light’s teacher throws chalk in his face for spacing out in class. Justified in that he’s worried that he just killed someone. Also normal high school subjects probably aren’t that interesting to a super-genius who already knows the subject material.

L Sometimes. He apparently takes 2 months off of his own investigation and refuses to work on it again until Light points to the Yotsuba Group as potential suspects.

14. Catch Phrase:

Light Say it with me everybody…

L  "I am JUSTICE!“ (Both he and Light have this catchphrase.)

15. Celibate Hero/Villain:

Light Or rather, Celibate Villain. Zigzagged: In the manga he dates as many as four women at a time to deflect suspicion, and has romantic trysts with Takada after becoming the second L in order to manipulate her into doing his bidding. However, he doesn’t really care about romance or sex, so played straight in that regard.

L   He was never interested in romantic relationships.

16. The Chessmaster:

Light He manipulates and uses pretty much everyone he comes into contact with.

L  See Awesomeness by Analysis.

17. Color-Coded For Your Convenience:

Light Official color seems to be red. Also wears a lot of black and white.

L Official color seems to be blue. According to Obata, his assigned color is gold. Grey also seems to be a recurring color.

18. Composite Character:

Light In the live action series, he is burned alive like Takada was in the manga and anime.

L In the films, he ousts Light as Kira and assesses him, much like Near.

19. Consummate Liar:

Light:  L asks Light if he seriously considers himself to be the polar opposite of this while the audience understands that Light is actually this:

L: Tell me, Light. From the moment you were born, can you honestly say you’ve never lied?

L To the point where no one can be sure if L is telling the truth, or lying.

20. Crazy Prepared:

Light: Played with. When he starts acting as Kira, he rigs his desk to burst into flame if anyone tries to find the Death Note, has three different ways to tell if someone has been in his room - even before gaining the notebook - and is shown spending hours going over his past actions and future plans, as well as what’s been reported in the news. He looks for mistakes and possible holes, and memorizes what has been reported, so L can’t trip him up. Later, due to his raging god complex and his sense of complete superiority, he starts to view himself as invincible, and stops being so well-prepared. It doesn’t end well for him.

L He’s prepared to use any tactics. He has money and resources set aside for every scenario imaginable… and some not!

21. Dark is not Evil/Light is Not Good:

Light No pun intended.

L His appearance is a bit… chilling: he is extremely pale, Looks Like Cesare and has Messy Hair. He’s also very stoic. However, he’s still on the justice’s side.

22. Determinator:

Light  "Childish and hates to lose.”

  • Light as Kira is (from his perspective) on a holy crusade against Evil. He’s never going to quit his mission for the sake of his friends, family, or “true love.” Sorry Misa and sorry fangirls.

L  He hates to lose.

23. Did you Just Scam/Punch out Cthulu: 

Light Light manipulates Rem into killing L and Watari in order to save Misa. Because this deliberately lengthened Misa’s life - a big no-no for Gods of Death - it ensures that Rem will die as well.

L How he’s introduced. He basically goes on television and tells Kira through his stand-in Lind L. Tailor where he can put his justice. Kira, of course, kills Tailor immediately, thinking that it’s L. Then, L keeps on taunting him anyway.

24. Do not Adjust Your Set:

Light He and Misa set several of these up throughout the course of the series, sometimes on national TV, sometimes on private laptops.

L He sets up the initial one of the series, identifying himself as Kira’s sworn enemy.

25. Et Tu Brute:

Light When the taskforce begins to turn against him in Season 2, it’s clear he sees it as a betrayal. Also the end of the series, “Matsuda, I thought you understood!” The manga finishes it up with Mikami screaming “YOU’RE NOT GOD!!”

L He realizes that Light, the person he is working alongside with, is once again Kira, moments before his death.

26. False Friend:

Light A mutual example with L. Their supposed friendship is completely insincere on both sides.

  • His relationship with Matsuda is probably closer then any of the other detectives since he believes that Matsuda is a Black Shirt who believes in Kira’s justice. He was wrong. And of course, Light didn’t hesitate to have Matsuda killed along with the other detectives.

L   To Light and Misa. Word of God confirmed that. He always lied.

27. Friendless Background:

Light Though he’s very popular Light doesn’t seem to be particularly close to anyone. This varies somewhat from the manga to the anime. In the manga, Light is seen casually joking while walking home with friends, while in the anime, Light is shown pointedly declining an invitation to hang out and eating lunch alone. He had many friends though, and he was able to get a large group together when going out looking for the Second Kira.

L L has no friends.

28. Gut Feeling:

Light Among other situations, if Light hadn’t felt this about Naomi Misora, the story would have had a very different ending.

L He is suspicious of Light from the moment he meets him. Guess what, L, you were right.

29. Hates Being Touched:

Light Misa never catches on.

L Zig-zagged. He tenses up and trembles when Aizawa roughly grabs him by the shoulder in one instance. But in another, when Misa kisses him on the cheek he responds rather positively to the gesture, blurting, “I could actually fall for you.” It might depend on context.

30. Hero Antagonist/Villain Protagonist:

Light To L’s Hero Antagonist.

L  As opposed to Light.

31. Hero with Bad/Villain With Good Publicity:

Light • As Kira, Light gradually gains more and more public support. In spite of being a mass murdering vigilante, he is admired by many for reducing crime rates through fear and power as if he were some deity smiting the wicked (which happens to be exactly how he sees himself). During the Time Skip, entire nations announce that they endorse Kira.

  • Light, as Light, is actually a straighter example; he’s a popular, intelligent, charming ace son of the police chief, who’s revered and admired by the people around him… who also happens to be a crazySerial Killer Magnificent Bastard.

L  The public and the police don’t trust L because he hides behind a computer screen.

32. Heterosexual Life Partners:

Light Also fakes being this with both L and Matsuda whenever he benefits from it. It’s mutual with L, but Matsuda genuinely believes them to be best friends.

L A completely falsified version with Light. They attend the same college, are constantly hanging out and later on begin living together, with L calling Light the only real friend he’s had in his entire life. In reality, all of this is a sham and both are simply playing mind games with the other to further raise the stakes of their battle.

33. Hypocrite:

Light • He considers all killings to be crimes, even if he carries them out himself or they’re done on his orders…though he still thinks he shouldn’t be punished for killing people himself. Especially since his victims include plenty of innocent people, killed to tie up loose ends, because they were trying to stop him, or in one case when they used the Death Note to kill people for profit - even though he gave it to them and expected them to do exactly that.

  • When Misa is introduced, she’s killing innocent newscasters and police officers for simply speaking out against Kira; Light is anything but pleased with her for doing so, but he himself did much the same by killing FBI agents. Misa even lampshades it, defending herself and retorting, “Isn’t that what you did?”

L • He tells Light that it’s illegal to murder outside of the law, but he does plenty of illegal things like spying and kidnapping in his efforts to catch Kira.

  • One potent example: when Light asks L to isolate him from the outside world to prove his innocence, L turns him down, explaining he “can’t deprive (Light) of his basic human rights,” and besides “it’s complete nonsense for an investigator to take suggestions from his suspect.” Guess what he ends up doing just a few episodes later.

34. I Am the Noun “I Am Justice”

35. I Did What I Had To Do:

Light • Light clings to this belief throughout the series.  

L Many times

36. I Have Many Names:

Light Light Yagami, Kira (the Saviour, the Messenger from Hell, etc.), Light Asahi, “Mr. A an office worker”, L (number two), God.

L Besides L, he’s also known as Ryuzaki, Eraldo Coil, Deneuve, and Hideki Ryuga. In Another Note, Mello estimated the amount of aliases that L possessed to be in the three digit range, and wonders which one of them finally killed him (not knowing that it was none of them), or if L himself even knew.

37. The Insomniac

Light though he’s easily overshadowed by L in this department Light often pulls all-nighters to keep his plans running smoothly.

L Aizawa: So, when does Ryuzaki sleep?

Matsuda: I once saw him sleeping in a chair in that position … No, really!

38. Insufferable Genius:

Light  It’s mostly well-hidden, but Light is not only well aware of his brilliance, but considers himself to be superior to most people because of it. We mostly only hear about it internal monologue, but every now and then, it slips through the cracks and is shown briefly to the other characters, too. It gets more prominent just before Light dies.

L He seems confident enough in his abilities that he thinks he can keep a supernatural killer an arm’s length close to him. This is taken Up to Eleven in the TV drama, wherein the pilot episode has him behave impolitely to Soichiro’s face.

39. Kick the Son of the bitch/Kick the Morality Pet:

Light Light and his family.

L L only reserves his justice for people he sees as evil, and to be fair, his accusations are always correct (Light, Misa). Moreover, while L does order the deaths of a few criminals to help further the investigation, these criminals were on death row anyway.

40. Lighter and Softer:

Light • In the television drama, the pre-Kira Light is much more extroverted and friendly (opposed to his reserved and somewhat brooding anime/manga counterpart), is so disgusted with himself over the first murders that he nearly commits suicide over them, spreads out the subsequent deaths at a much slower pace, and genuinely cares enough about Misa to deliberately target the man who killed her family.

  • Played straight in the neflix movie

L His film counterpart

41. Manipulative Bastard:

Light Whoo boy. Deceit and manipulation pretty much define all of Light’s relationships. The crowning moment of his manipulations is when he manages to get Rem to kill L in order to save Misa’s life, thereby ending her life as well.

L Undeniably. L has no problem using people to get the job done. Light of all people calls him out on it when he loses his memories and refuses to go along with L’s plan to manipulate Misa.

42. Meaningful Name

Light Done ironically seeing as Light is (probably) not good. Also Yagami (夜神) means “Night god” or “Dark god”, so his name is “Light Dark God”. But the important thing is the god part.

L His last name Lawliet, which is pronounced “low-light.”

43. Nice Guy:

Light: Not very much after he picked up the Death Note, but when his memories are wiped during the Yotsuba arc, he reverts to the way he was/would have been before picking up the Notebook.

L An odd example. Despite his poor social skills and Anti-Hero status, he’s fairly polite, accessible and civil. That, and his soft side with children.

44. Not So Different:

Light: Frequently lampshaded. Both he and L are genius Chessmasters that hold vast power by remaining anonymous- L solves criminal cases behind his computer screen, Light judges humanity from the comfort of his bedroom. They’re two sides of the same coin: Light has great ideals and no integrity. L has great integrity and no ideals.

L Frequently lampshaded, especially with his true name: Lawliet, which is pronounced like “low light.” The Great Detective L is a nameless, anonymous force of justice / retribution that may strike down when your least expect it. Sound familiar? Sucks to be you, Light.

45. Out Gambitted:

Light By Near at the end thanks to Mikami’s screw up.

L By Light; essentially what his death came down to, although he had no way of knowing Rem would kill to protect Misa.

46. Pet the Dog:

Light He often helped Sayu with her homework, but this was partially done to throw suspicion off him.

  • His possibly genuine love for family might count. This changes later with he didn’t seem to care about his father’s death and thought killing his sister would put more suspicion on him. He never seemed interested in hurting his mother, however.
  • When his memory is erased and he’s helping with the investigation, he notes that Kira never killed anybody who had already served their sentences, displayed genuine remorse, or had seemingly justifiable reasons for their crimes.

L: His way with kids

47. Properly Paranoid:

Light After all, they are all out to get him.

L Light is Kira, Misa is the second Kira, and they really are out to get L.

  • In Another Note, Mello explains that the reason L doesn’t go out much or interact with many people face-to-face is that L’s life is perpetually in danger due to his line of work.

48. Red Oni, Blue Oni: 

To each other. Light and L, respectively.

49. Stalker without a Crush:

Light: Towards Naomi Misora

L Towards Light and Misa.

50. The Stoic:

Light: Whatever else you may say about him, Light has a great poker face. This serves to give his Not So Stoic moments even more of an impact.

  • Lampshaded by L. He kills criminals without even changing his expression.

L: Remains calm in very bad situations.

51. Strange Minds Think Alike

Light: With L, and Mikami.

  • With Misa, as well, considering their opinions on how to go about creating a New World. “To defeat evil, there must be sacrifices, right?”
  • Also with Ryuk in the first episode when they both contemplate how rotten their respective worlds are.

L Light and L will often be shown to be thinking the exact same thing.

52. Tautological Templar:

Light:

Light: “Me? Evil? I am justice! Those who oppose me — they’re the evil ones!

L: His methods, including violations of privacy, unlawful imprisonment/kidnapping, and physical and psychological torture, seem to be justified, both in-universe and out, because he’s the one doing it.

  • In the case of Misa’s imprisonment given that he knows she can kill with just a person’s face, but does NOT know that she has to have the Death Note to do so, you could say that it is a case of Desperate Times Call For Desperate Measures

53. Teen Genius:

Light: He’s the top scoring student in all of Japan. Not to mention that he manages to stay on L’s level and focus on school-work.

L: He’s several years past his teens by the time of the series, though you have to assume he started that way.

54. That’s what I Would Do

Light: He freaks out his father pretty badly when he voices this to L.

L  He tries to think of Kira’s next move using this reasoning.

55. Together in Death:

Light: With L, at the end.

L: With Light, at the end. In the anime, he is the last thing Light sees before dying.

56. Trademark Favorite Food:

Light: Potato chips. Barbecue to be exact. He exploits this by hiding a mini LCD TV in a bag of barbecue chips because he’s the only one who eats that flavor.

L  Cake and really sweets of any kind.

57. Tragic Bromance:

With Light during the Yotsuba arc.

58. TV Genius:

Light: His cleverness at times reaches beyond the plausible. (Not as extreme as L’s, though.)

L: He often seems to deduce things almost out of thin air. As a general rule, he’s never wrong about anything.

59. Took a Level in Jerkass:

Light: Believe it or not, he Used to Be a Sweet Kid before finding a killer notebook and it just keeps getting harsher from there as he shifts his focus away from his vision of ”a perfect world“ to ”not getting caught.“ After the time skip his standards have slipped considerably.

L: In the TV drama, he’s noticeably more arrogant and stuck-up than his original counterpart. He even installs the cameras and microphones without telling the investigators involved, especially Soichiro.

60. Took a Level in Kindness:

Light: When he relinquishes his Death Note memories during the Yotsuba arc. It doesn’t last.

L: In the films

61. Ugly Hero Good Looking Villain:

Light: Light is the handsome villain to L’s more… unique looking hero.

L:  L is the strange-looking hero to Light’s handsome villain. However, his legion of fangirls disagree.

62. Voice with an Internet Connection:

Light: As the second L.

L: To everyone at first, until Light forces him into a situation where he needs to come out into the open to Light himself and the Kira taskforce members.

63. Workaholic:

Light: During the first arc, Light devotes all of the time that he’s not working on work for school or cram school to killing criminals as Kira; in the anime, he turns down offers to hang out with other students, something Ryuk comments on. And let’s give the kid some credit: keeping up four girls at once isn’t exactly easy, even if it is for a relatively brief period of time.

  • And in the second arc, when he’s balancing his jobs as L and Kira, he often goes without sleep to keep his schemes running smoothly. At one point, Matsuda calls Light’s ability to work endlessly "amazing.”

L: He spends all his time solving cases and eating candy. He rarely sleeps.

64. Xanatos Speed Chess

Light: He’s a master of this.

L: He’s a master of it, as shown when he saves Matsuda from being discovered by the Yotsuba group by having him fake his own death.

65. Young and In Charge:

L: He’s 24 at the beginning and the world’s greatest detective with control over the world’s police forces. It’s suggested he’s been this for several years, back into his teens and possibly even his childhood. In-series, the middle-aged cops of the taskforce answer to him.

Light: He is 18 when he assumes L’s name and control of the Japanese Taskforce after L’s death, and even at twenty-three in the second season he remains both its youngest member and leader.

In which Marcus gets amnesia and forgets he used to be an asshole

“Abby!  Abby!  Get a load of this. Thelonious is cracking me up.  He’s trying to convince me we all used to live in space.”

“We did babe.“

“What?”

“Yeah, why do you think we all now currently live in the wreckage of a crashed space ship?“

“I thought it was just a bold design choice.“

“Nope.“

“But then how could I be an advocate for peace and harmony among all nations if we all lived together on one tiny spaceship?“

“You weren’t, babe, you were kind of a dick.”

“I was?“

“Yeah, you were a dictatorial authoritarian who threw people in jail for disagreeing with you.“

“Um I think you’re referring to Pike.”

“Kane, did you forget the part where you had Jake Griffin executed?“

“That doesn’t sound like me at ALL.  Why would I do that?“

“Because the ship was running out of oxygen and he wanted to tell everyone, and you were afraid there would be riots.”

“Hmmm.  Sounds like a tough call.  What did Clarke say?  I always consult Clarke on sensitive political matters.”

“You arrested her, Kane.“

“Uh, hello, why would I arrest my stepdaughter?“

“Kane –“

“Why would I ever do something that would cause physical or emotional harm to someone who is so important to me?“

“Ooooooh, this is gonna be awkward.“

“What?“

“You’re forgetting about the part where you had Abby whipped, aren’t you?“

“Babe why would you tell Thelonious about that?”

“No, babe, he doesn’t mean in a sexy way, he means like in a ‘public shaming’ kind of way.“

“I WOULD NEVER“

“You did, babe.”

“I WOULD NEVER LAY A HAND ON YOUR PRECIOUS HEAD“

“Kane –“

“YOU ARE A PERFECT TREASURE THIS WORLD DOES NOT DESERVE AND ANYONE WHO TRIES TO HARM YOU MUST GO THROUGH ME”

“Kane, you tried to have her floated.“

“Ha!  Good one, Thelonious.”

“It’s true, babe.”

“That doesn’t sound like me at ALL.  Did I have an evil twin in space?”

“No, it was definitely you.  I remember pretty clearly since I had to hobble out of Medical with an open wound to get to the airlock and stop you.”

“Uh, I think you’ve been taking one too many of those happy pills, Thelonious.  My best friend Indra would never have let this happen.  Wait, why are you looking at each other like that?“

“Babe – “

“NO INDRA?“

“I’m sorry babe.“

“So I really tried to kill you?”

“It was a long, long time ago, babe.  It was like … almost six months.  We’re good.”

“I’m so sorry babe I can’t believe I did that.  Wait, was I distracted because my kids were in danger?  How many kids did I have then?”

“None.“

“None?  Not even a single Blake?“

“I’m sorry, babe.”

But then why would I even have a beard if it wasn’t to make myself appear more fatherly?”

“You didn’t have a beard then, Kane.”

“I DIDN’T EVEN HAVE A BEARD?”

“Shhhhh, okay, babe, it’s all right.“

“I hate space me.“

“I know, babe.  I know.“

Jimin about J-Hope’s mean side

J-Hope is a bright guy, laugh a lot and has become hopeful like his name. J-Hope has good energy that effects everyone in a good way and i think J-hope is awesome. And people think he’s always nice and innocent. But, inside his smiley face, there’s an evil living there. J-Hope winds me up all the time but never stop smiling even when he does that.

So I was at home thinking ‘’ What if Jack’s powers can connect Dean and the empty in a way?’’ and this happened.


“ And you know what that got him? It got him dead! Now you might be able to forget about that, but I can not! ” His voice rises, sounding broken and full of emotion. “ It’s not fair, nothing that has happened is! ” He keeps shouting and Sam watches him with sorrow, as if he could understand him. Dean swallows a bitter laugh, Sam will never understand, not when it comes to Cas. Dean turns around before Sam can say anything else, his shoulders drooping and his steps tired. He doesn’t want to hear anything else, he can’t do it. Dean finally reaches  his room and throws his bag without caring about where it falls, he can still feel the anger making a lump in his throat, his eyes filling with tears. Dean drops to the floor, next to the end of his bed and hides his face in his hands, the tears now falling freely and sliding down his cheeks. He is so mad at everyone, at everything.

A Playbutton or This?

You remember how you said you wanted a YouTuber AU for Captive Prince.
Well.
I have been thinking.

I can hear the fandom declaring Laurent as a fashion vlogger, beauty guru type person, because he’s got the face for it, and the holier-than-thou attitude that you might expect from a model, and to them I say what book series have you been reading. If anyone is going to be gently judging other people’s clothes for a living, it’s gonna be Damen. 

Therefore, I declare Damen a beauty guru who focuses primarily on clothes (though if you don’t think he has Things To Say on other stuff, you should watch search through his channel for a series he calls The War of Makeups). Everyone assumes that he is, at first glance, some online fitness instructor, or at a stretch maybe a DIY person. Someone who wears a lot of flannel and films himself as he hikes around swinging axes impressively at trees.


Everyone is wrong, and Damen kind of really enjoys the double-take everyone always does when he introduces himself. Because, like, his channel name is pretty recognizable. CaptiveDamnen (he is so proud of that channel name you have no idea) is a big deal in the community, it’s just the person that no one is expecting.


Laurent, on the other hand, is definitely a sketch comedian. Probably writes and performs everything himself, very clinical, very professional. He’s a competent video editor, because he’d never enter into a project without at the very least understanding every aspect of it, but he also probably hires a film major named Jord to help him shoot and edit so that it looks perfect. Whenever he shows up to meet and greets he manages to leave without a hair out of place.


Damen spends like half a live show the night after a big YouTube event trying to answer people’s questions about what products Laurent must use to be able to mingle with literally a thousand fans and still look like he’s ready for a professional photo shoot.


Damen, on the other hand, is very home-grown YouTube. Not that it’s shittily done, not at all, but it doesn’t have the slightly unrealistic veneer that Laurent has all over his videos. He shoots and edits himself ninety nine percent of the time.


While Laurent does excel at playing every single part himself, he also has a common costar by the name of Nicaise. No one quite knows why, because while Nicaise is a good actor and quite frankly stunning to look at, he’s probably the most evil person in the world in real life, and he makes absolutely no attempt to hide it. Fans have spent years trying to figure out the puzzle that is Nicaise and Laurent’s relationship, ever since Nicaise appeared in one of the earliest videos as a tiny, angelic looking, extraordinarily bratty child of nine. He’s not related, Laurent has never made any mention of any sort of deal between them, and Nicaise was there from the beginning so he can’t possibly have been looking to ride on Laurent’s coattails, because that was long before Laurent, and indeed the YouTube platform, had any pull anywhere.


Damen, on the other hand, most often collaborates with a fellow YouTuber, a-

____

Shit. Dude. Shit. Like, the sketch comedy thing makes sense because Laurent is, like, the king of wearing a different face, but I’ve already written an actor AU, and, like, Laurent would also totally be a gamer.


Like, he doesn’t look the type at all, but he is absolutely 100% the kind of person who would adore the competitive, strategic world of online gaming and he would kill as a cool, sarcastic commentator navigating his way flawlessly through level after level of the most complicated, mind-fucky games.


He still edits everything with surgical precision, his entire setup is always crystal clear and perfect, and he still gets an obvious professional to edit the videos. Nicaise is still his incredibly bratty occasional costar who nobody can figure out the purpose of, other than to look pretty and call Laurent names and purposefully get him killed.

COMPLETE REWRITE IN MY HEAD DONE. MOVING ON.

____

Damen most often collaborates with a DIY YouTuber, Nikandros, who helps Damen out with the more crafty projects that require equipment that Damen doesn’t really want to go out and buy, in exchange for Damen going through Nik’s closet and finding him good date outfits while Nik stares bewilderedly at Damen’s back and very clearly does not absorb a single tip Damen gives him. Their combined audiences apparently adore watching him quietly putting a pillow over his head and giving up in abject defeat while in the background Damen keeps up a light patter of information about how it’s not his closet that’s wrong, it’s the way he’s pairing his clothes.


Damen claims that he’s an expert strategist, which is why he’s able to work the magic that he does. He says that it’s not so much an inborn “girly” knowledge of what colors suit each other as it is understanding the component parts of an outfit and how they all play together.


Damen says this at a YouTube event panel, where he and maybe fifteen other YouTubers with completely different channels have all been herded onto a stage to discuss the common links between them as members of the YouTube platform, rather than as individual creators. Nik is sitting beside him, and makes furious cutting off motions as Damen declares himself a strategist, to the amusement of the whole crowd, leaving Damen to let his sentence trail off in confusion as he looks left at his friend and doesn’t notice the icy glare coming from his right from the probably rightfully proclaimed king of strategy himself, Laurent of the channel PrinceVere.


He keeps on not noticing until Laurent leans into the microphone and says, “Expert strategist?” with enough polite poison in his voice to make the entire audience go OOOooooooooooooo as one.


Damen turns around, still so incredibly confused, and says, “Yes, I am a strategist,” and then, looking rather derisively at Laurent’s clothing choice, “You might not think of clothing as a winnable venture, but I do.”

One Piece 858 thoughts

Finally I find the time/mood to make another review! And couldn’t be a chapter for it. 

My wifi hates me, so not many images today. Let’s start with the wonderful, glorious, cover - The first one, because we even have two. To all the people who said Luffy shouldn’t forgive Sanji, the rest of the crew is still angry with him… here’s your answer. The crew has many different characters and responses on all kinds of situations, but this doesn’t change: they have the utmost respect for their captain and will follow his judgement. 

This is actually something that evolved after the timeskip: Luffy is now clearly more mature. The death of Ace had him forcefully realize that adventure and friendship  is all good and so on, but at some point you must stop and think. Luffy before timeskip was about to tell Usopp to leave the crew and lose Zoro’s respect. Luffy, now, asks questions - to Sanji - and listens to answers - that he thankfully understands as lies. 

As for the second one… well. 

You lost because you didn’t win

English-speaking people must have a difficult time realizing how it feels to learn a bit of English in middle school and starting to write random cool phrases that mean eveything but als kinda notjing worth saying like “I love you” or “Be yourself xoxo” on each other’s diaries. It’s a teenage thing - or maybe not, since I still write poems on my walls -, it’s a phase, it passes. Apparently Oda- sensei isn’t out of it yet. And likes tautologies. 

By the way I lpve this cover because it literally supports every ship possible with Nami: Sanami, Zonami, Lunami… but in particular SANAMI BECAUSE THE FRICKING NUMBER ON HER SHIRT IS A 73. Whatever. Leave me alone. Other than that, as per @sanjiafsincedayone‘s posts we know that 73 and 32 rapresents Sanji and Nami. So I guess the other numbers have some meaning as well. 

I don’t really get the point of this page… to show that the wedding is approaching - as per the clock…? - nor the point of this new character. Oda generally gives everything a meaning, but sometimes he doesn’t… I think. 

Pekoms is being held prisoner back by Jinbei’s crew not to let him spill a word of the plan to Big Mom - this dude is way too loyal, that witch doesn’t deserve him. I like seeing some strange races every now and then and I just looove Praline’s design, I’d let her step on me - something she couldn’t do, given the fact she has no legs lol - but every time I see her, I fricking wonder: HOW DID BIG MOM GIVE BIRTH TO A MERMAID. To be more specific: HOW DID SHE CONCEIVE HER

But One Piece is kids-friendly so I guess we’ll never know, uh…

Big Mom leaves her  underlings quite a bit of freedom, letting Bege even have his own castle. Vito the evil fanboy - in contrast to Bartolomeo the good fanboy - meets them and tells them to have a bath. And Luffy’s the one staying focused on the most urgent matters, can you believe it??? But Sanji and Luffy look at each other and agree they do quite stink LOL

The boys get some fanservice and we get some hints and recap. For us hardcore fans of One Piece this is quite useless, but since all the friends I have that don’t read OP say it’s because it’s too long and there’s too much stuff to remember …I guess it makes sense. And with what Carrot says here, I’m more and more convinced she’ll join the crew - or at the very least be with them for a while longer. 

Lola’s was asked in marriage by the the Giants’ prince, Loki - named after the Northern Mythology god of deceit Loki, but this is tumblr and Tom Hiddleston exists, I don’t really need to tell you right? -, here goes the double gag, cause

A. She was asked in marriage - because of her personality I guess, but jokes aside, she was really a good girl

B. They still understood Lola=/=Chiffon, I don’t know how.

And by the way for the Sanami shippers here, Nami is impressed at the mention of a prince

So my theory of Mama needing Ceasar’s help because of her hatred towards giants was partially correct. She wanted their army and now wants to get the Vinsmokes’. Also, she’s an abusive parent, but nothing new here. 

Here’s just how big Sanji’s heart his. Personally, I would side with Chiffon, I don’t think she’s cruel or anything, many would side with her, and I can tell because so many thought not only Sanji would let his family die, but even kill them himself. And instead…

They beat him. Verbally and emotionally abused him. His own father tried to kill him, and now are using him… and even so…

Getting to the gag stuff - which, as always, I love - Brook did in fact have a fierce battle, Luffy! And yet again, how is the level-headed one… I’d never thought I’d put “Luffy” and “level-headed” in the same sentence ….

What the hell is up with your bodies!

We all ‘ve been wondering hon. W’all ‘ve been wondering. 

Next up, the Mafia runaway! I love how they look, so 20′s … but why didn’t they give Sanji a suit as well? I know it’s what he wears all the time, but he’ll end up looking unelegant in comparison, and I cannot have that. Carrot’s so adorable with her hat, but Pedro just feels terribly uneasy, you can tell, and not because Ceasar’s sitting right next to him. 

Ahhhh he’s wearing shorts! He couldn’t be that elegant I guess. Pity. 

So…

For once!

And 

Is no-one going to say anything at Luffy wearing two hats? Okay…

And then the mess happens. Poor Jinbei. He’s astonished. 

Yup.  We all wonder. 

substition bride with Nami please? 

anonymous asked:

One the reasons we are really against evil Lena is because we now know that she's an angel and because of her relationship with Kara. But also I don't think I'm the only that assumed that she was gonna be evil when the character was announced and Katie was casted. If we hadn't met this Lena, if we were still there where we didn't know would you rather have the Lena we have now or evil Lena since the beggining? Cause evil Lena could have been great and Katie would be amazing playing that too

Ohhh good question anon!

I admit, I was one of many that also assumed Katie was going to play a baddie. She plays them so well and puts so much heart into the characters. Even when some of the first pictures were released it was still easy to make that assumption. I mean….

She definitely has that look, yeah? Part of me would have been totally down. I’m used to loving villains anyway and Katie would have rocked it. However, if we had never met good Lena… Hmmm, knowing what I know about Supergirl I think it is really important to let Lena be good. At this point, Kara needs someone like Lena. A good Lena brings a great dynamic to the show and also gives the show the opportunity to further the notion of women supporting women. I feel like too much time has been spent deferring and at times even reversing the strong feminist-based message that made the show what it was during season 1.

So at this point, when you see Kara, who no longer has Cat Grant, and is constantly sharing scenes with the likes of M*n-El, and has been slowly converted into the hand-holding, babysitting, love interest that thinks it’s okay to just be Supergirl and have a boyfriend, and is at times being belittled by Snapper Carr it is really really important for her to have a positive female influence like Lena in her life. Lena has not only proven to be an angel, but has been one of the people – one of the women that has supported and validated Kara Danvers since the beginning. Yes she has it in Alex, but she needs it from more than just her sister. This is especially so since Alex is also being developed further and has branched into a great story of her own. She can’t just be a crutch. Kara can never have too many female supporters. As a matter of fact, Kara really needs it. The show really needs it and if they are smart, they will keep Lena the way she is. She has been so well-written and to throw it all away at this point would be nonsensical.

So yeah, initially I did like the idea of Katie playing another bad girl. I love when she does. But I think even if she had been bad, she still would have been complex and not just a single-dimensional villain serving a short purpose. I think they would have spent time on her story and I most likely would have thought, ‘Wow, what if she weren’t bad? She and Kara would be amazing if things were different!’ So good girl Lena it is!

I’m rambling now, but I recall Katie once saying that she didn’t think she made a convincing good girl. She said that she felt you had to be an excellent actress to convince an audience that your character is good and she didn’t know if she was capable. Pretty sure she has proven herself wrong there! Look how she has grown!

Thanks for the ask anon! I love early morning thinky thoughts!! 💗

flumyeahzoeyp  asked:

if the rangers were to play dnd, who would be the dm dya think?

thanks for the ask! @penvision​ and i came up with a few ranger dnd headcanons (with a little trimberly and cranscott)

- billy has been playing dnd for years, he used to play with his dad, who taught him how to be a dm and helped him plan campaigns.

- he used to meet weekly with a group of friends in middle school, but once high school started and they all became busy with other clubs and sports

- the rangers start their group because billy mentions it at lunch one day and trini says she had a small group that she played with two schools ago (even though her mother never approved)

- billy and trini spend the next three days talking about it and kim, jason, and zack just sit and watch, because it’s adorable how excited and happy billy and trini are, and all decide after five minutes to learn 

- zack’s character is a gnome cleric and the party healer; healing the other rangers’ characters can be really cathartic for him. 

- billy always makes sure that none of their characters get too close to dying though-he makes the campaign challenging but wants zack to have fun and not get stressed out so he tries to watch zack to see when he needs to back off on the danger a little bit. jason watches too so he can let billy know if he missed a signal from zack.

- kim’s character is a really tall, buff barbarian human woman (partially because she wants to be a huge badass barbarian woman and also because she knows trini has a thing for girls with muscles)

- kim’s character is really overprotective and says she wants to fight anyone who looks at any of their characters the wrong way (especially trini’s). she’s also really impulsive and never does perception checks before she goes anywhere so she’s constantly falling into traps and ambushes 

- trini’s character is a chaotic good tiefling woman. she wants her character to be someone who people might look at and perceive something evil but she actually has a heart of gold 

- trini doesn’t say it but she wants her character to be the tallest in the group so kim makes her character a bit shorter than originally planned. trini is also very pleased that she gets to make fun of zack’s character for being the shortest in the group

- jason is a little hesitant at first because he’s never done anything like this before and has never really had the chance to be very creative with what he does (he’s always been in sports or other really structured activities) so he doesn’t get dnd right away and starts with a pretty generic human warrior

- once jason finds his footing he gets super into dnd, he learns all the lore and rules and helps billy plan their campaigns sometimes

- billy lets jason retcon his character to a dragonborn ranger with a really elaborate backstory. jason picked a ranger so he could make jokes about how his character is a ranger too and names his character’s long bow “ranger danger.”

- jason spends at least fifteen minutes every session explaining some new part of his character or some cool lore he read about and the other rangers always listen to him with huge smiles because it’s obvious he’s having a lot of fun

Yana and editor K’s tweets about the Circus arc, Musical (2017) and GFantasy

Source: X, X

English translation:

Yana: 8 years have passed since I wrote the Circus arc. I’ve just remembered that while drawing it, I tried to elaborate on the theme “there are certain things that don’t turn out well no matter how hard you try” (which is actually an improper theme for the entertainment industry) as well as the theme of “the seemingly reversed right and wrong”. Even though Sebastian [a demon] is the main character of this series, all arcs of Kuroshitsuji are supposed to be a paean to human beings.


Yana: The Circus crew were mercilessly eliminated by the servants. You might feel sorry for them but actually, they came to kidnap [a child]. Be it the manga, anime or the musical, I received the feedback that people rather empathised with the Circus crew and thus felt distressed [by their fate]. I guess Sebastian and Ciel really must have looked like the bad guys. Though, actually, they’ve never really been good-hearted to begin with… (lol)

Editor K: That scene in the musical [version of the Circus Arc] where Sebastian and Ciel laugh at Joker, who has just threatened them [to kill anyone at the manor]… They had such “bad guys” vibes, I was really surprised!

Yana: Oh that scene! I’m so thankful to Mr. Furukawa [*Sebastian’s actor] and Mr. Uchikawa [*Ciel’s actor]. They looked very evil indeed (lol) I mean this as a genuine compliment, of course! In that moment Sebastian and Ciel were actually the heroes who punished the serial child kidnapper… …at least in that very moment…

Editor K: It was shocking to see how an adult and an actual child were laughing in the same evil way.


Yana: The Circus arc is an arc where even I as the author can’t judge who was right and who was bad. Back when it was serialized in the GFantasy magazine, anime season 1 was airing in full swing. I’m really grateful to Square Enix for greenlighting this story *under such circumstances. [*Note: Since the atmosphere in the Circus arc was much darker than in the anime, it could have led to confusion for the new audience who got into this series through the anime.]

Editor K: They immediately reject the slightest depiction of underwear, but on the other hand, give full approval to a dark plot like that in the Circus Arc. The GFantasy [editorial department] is such an interesting place, isn’t it?

Yana: Come to speak of it, the drawers and corsets which I always draw so enthusiastically have never been rejected either. GFantasy really is a nice place.

Editor K: Indeed!!


Yana: Sebastian might be amused by the human beings who fight to protect their own world, and laughing at them from a demon’s point of view in the current musical version of the Circus arc. However, in the animated movie of the Luxury Liner arc, which will be released in January next year, he’ll find himself rolling over the floor and vomiting blood due to his self-imposed challenge to maintain the aesthetic [of a butler], so please look forward to it, too. *advertises bluntly*
