godfather*

anonymous asked:

y u hate jiraiya

bc of the obvious reasons ?? his character is the gross pervert old man trope, he makes naruto do the sexy jutsu for him when hes twelve years old and makes naruto incredibly uncomfortable. i remember he said how he thought konan would be hot when she was older. he had once stolen all of narutos money and used it on drinks and women. sakura doesnt like him either.

hes technically narutos godfather and closest thing to a family member and yet he doesnt come back to konoha to raise him even tho he knew narutos parents both had died 

In Detective Comics 955, Christine Montclair inspires Cassandra Cain to go forth and rescue Batman and the rest of her team/pseudo-family by reading from a novel/story book by a woman called Carolyn Wu-san. Unbeknownst to Cassandra, Carolyn Wu-san also happens to be Cass’ aunt.

Introduced in another book earlier in the DC Rebirth line in Supergirl’s title, where Cat Grant mentions that she’d taken a body-language reading course with Carolyn. Interestingly it appears that she might be both famous in her own right AND might actually be alive somewhere in the DCU, when her past incarnations seemed to exist to motivate her sister Sandra (Lady Shiva) into going on a rampage by dying.

Created for Richard Dragon: Kung-Fu Fighter 2, a title which was attempting to ride the same martial arts fad which would give both to Iron Fist. Carolyn was a New York-based college student who first had the indignity by being kidnapped by some guys due to her godfather being famous DCU martial artist O-Sensei, followed by her getting kidnapped a second time by a Swiss spy known as… err… the Swiss.

After torturing her for information she didn’t have, the Swiss having believed her uncle had been sending her valuable information, she was then promptly killed in a motorcycle accident as the Swiss attempted to escape a pursuing Richard Dragon. Richard then followed the wounded spy to a junkyard and beat him to death.

This was followed shortly afterwards by the debut of Lady Shiva, who decided to murder Richard, believing he was responsible for Carolyn’s death (which he sort of was, chasing a panicking motorcyclist down a mountain road and all). It being the 1970s, Sandra also developed feelings for Richard, although later writers were a bit more vague as to what those “feelings” might be.

After the Crisis on Infinite Earths, Carolyn disappeared from the continuity, only to re-emerge in Lady Shiva’s new backstory in Cassandra Cain’s solo Batgirl series. There Carolyn and Sandra grew up together in Detroit, where they became well known for their body-reading abilities which translated into neat martial arts-dancing. Unfortunately for Carolyn, assassin David Cain had also noticed them, and, deciding that Carolyn was holding her sister back by existing, he violently murdered her.

After the furious Sandra eventually tracked him down, David gave her an ultimatum, if she agreed to have his kid, he’d give her access to the facilities and teachers to make her truely the Best Martial Artist in the World. And if she refused, he and the rest of the League of Assassins would just murder her.

She picked the former, skipped down once Cass was born, and spent the next 17 or so years looking for someone worthy enough to defeat and kill her… What with her decision and Carolyn’s death weighing so much on her that she wanted to die but couldn’t go through with just committing suicide. Yaaaay.

All of this is contrasted with the new Detective Comics version of Shiva, who appears to have, at least initially, joined the League of Assassins out of a genuine desire to make the world a better place… Only for Ra’s al Ghul to turn her into a terrifying extremist when the full extent of his plans was revealed to her.

There is also the interesting meta-plot here, where Carolyn’s deaths in the past led Lady Shiva down a path which would lead her to become a bloodthirsty monster, whereas here Carolyn manages to inspire Cass to save the day despite them never having met OR know they were related to one another. Neat.

imagine the missus would give this to harry and tell him that she wants mitch to be alfie’s godfather. maybe when they are just laying on the couch and harry is telling her about the best experiences he made with mitch and how close he is to his heart. and harry would get a little emotional since he didn’t expect the missus to pick him. ❤️😊xx

Oh, my goodness. This is SO adorable. 

They’d be dangerously close to Alfie’s christening date, discussing and making plans for the big day, including talk on godparents and who should be the legal guardian over him if anything were to happen to either Harry or the missus. Persephone would be tucked up and snoozing in her bed after being put down after her bath, sharing cuddles and kisses with the missus and Harry before he read her a story whilst the missus fed Alfie.

Cradling the new baby to his chest, Harry would be sprawled out on the sofa with his legs kicked up and his feet resting on the missus’ lap as she jotted down notes, pen scribbling down in her journal. Her laptop balancing dangerously on the arm of the chair as she scrolled through venue hires for a small party after the ceremony. Small chatter happening between them as she asks him what he thinks about something for the day. 

“Did I tell you what Mitch said the other day?” Harry asks, chuckling softly as Alfie squirms on his chest and whines out softly, fists grabbing at Harry’s t-shirt, “oh, hi. Hey, baby boy. Did I wake you up? I’m sorry, Bugger.”

“What did he say?”

“He was speaking about our trip to Jamaica back in 2016. Brought back some good old memories. You know when we travelled out to write for my album?” He smiles as the missus nods softly, drawing patterns in his ankles as he hums softly, “we were talking about how good it was to stay in that house and be hidden away from everyone in the most beautiful country. And, he mentioned about going back out for a trip now that Alfie’s passed the age for flying. He said we should all take a trip out and have a holiday together.”

“That would be nice. I could do with a trip away from London,” she smiles, tapping his feet softly, “move your legs for a bit. I need to go get something for you.”

“For me?” He grunts softly, swivelling in the seat and setting his feet to the floor, cradling Alfie to his chest and being careful not to disrupt his sleep, as the missus disappeared from the room and into the cupboard beneath the stairs where she rummaged through her coat pocket to retrieve the present she’d purchased that day; a rose-gold stick with “GODFATHER” etched into the metal. “You didn’t need to buy me something, Gorgeous. You’ve given me too much these last few weeks.”

She walks into the living room and falls back beside him, pulling her laptop to her lap before it fell, hanging the keyring from her finger in front of him and letting it dangle down and shine underneath the light.

“S’not really for you personally, but, when you speak so fondly of Mitch, it makes me so happy that you’ve got someone like him as a friend. My mum took me into a shop in Surrey today and it looked so good. I just had to get it. I got one for the godmother, too,” she states, letting him reach from the rose-gold stick, a smile bright on his face “I figured you could give this to Mitch when you next see him. Make it official at Alfie’s christening. He loves Alfie and you love Mitch and he just seems perfect for the job.”

“You, uh, you’re sure?”

“Of course I’m sure,” she grins, brushing her fingers over Alfie’s hair and pressing her lips to Harry’s, “I want Mitch as Alfie’s godfather. He’ll be perfect, Peaches.” xx
