good lord he's the dark knight

insp

“you’ll marry me, won’t you?”

she asks it while they’re curled up next to one another, her face nuzzled against his side and when he glances down at her, he sees her grey eyes peeking up at him.  they aren’t nervous, they’re warm, they’re loving, and gendry takes a deep, shaky breath.

“that can’t…be a good idea,” he says slowly, and every word catches hold of his throat as though determined not to leave his lips.

“why not?” she asks, not sitting up.  “and don’t you pull that you’re too lowborn nonsense with me.  you’re knighted and lorded now.  not that i cared about that before.”  she rests her lips against the skin of his side–not quite a kiss. 

he feels a rush of warmth.  she had always cared, after all.  that’s why…why everything, why he’d run after her through the dark, why he’d waited for her, why he was here now.  she’d never faltered in that.

the words continue to claw.  “it can’t be a proper match.  you’re the king’s sister, and you’re his strong right arm.  surely you should wed someone…someone with something to bring.  some alliance or…” he doesn’t want to think of that.  he imagines arya marrying some poncy southron lordling–who looks remarkably like edric dayne, though dayne’s already betrothed–and it’s only the fact that he can’t look away from her grey eyes that keeps his own open.  “i don’t bring anything to you or your house that you don’t already have.”

“except your heart,” arya whispers.

“you already have that,” gendry chokes out.

“and your swords.”

gendry blinks.

“what?”

“well…” arya says and everything about her face is serious except those grey eyes.  those are dancing.  “well, i’m a swordswoman you’ll recall.  and i need swords.  and you can make them.  you can provide me with swords whenever i need them.”

gendry finds himself laughing.  “you’re a stark.  you could buy as many swords as you would like.”

“or i could just get one from you as i need.  i know you make them still, even if you’re a knight and a lord.  i want access to your stash.”

“my stash.”

“of swords.”  her hand begins to toy with the hair of his lower belly, and a wicked grin plays across her lips.  “whenever i like.  you’re very good at swordcraft after all.”

gendry smirks despite himself, and arya asks again, “you’ll marry me, won’t you?” and this time, the words don’t claw their way out of his throat when he says, “yes.”

Sterek Fairy Tale AUs

Fairy Tale AUs Sterek style because fairy tales are awesome! And also because you guys inbox me the greatest asks. EVER. I did not include Stiles’s Story Time …but if you are a fairy tale fanatic like me then you MUST check it out!

The Boy and the Beast by Dira Sudis (dsudis) | 116,686

In which events in Beacon Hills go rather differently from the start, and a Beauty and the Beast (ish) story ensues. (Scott is not a teacup and no one sings about their feelings.)

tie your napkin ‘round your neck, cherie by magneticwave | 7,764

Stiles has been a teapot for 3,308 days. // Scott skids into the door breathlessly and shouts, “THERE’S A GIRL IN THE CASTLE,” and promptly brains himself on one of the casserole dishes.

The One With The Scottish Wolf Lord by Stoney | 11,758

The Hales are alive and a royal family in Scotland; Stiles is the waif sent to work in the kitchens, elevated to personal attendant/servant to the young Lord Hale. Who happens to be a wolf who can’t shift back. (Not without finding… *spoiler*)

The Rest Is Unwritten by mikkimouse | 6,267

Once upon a time, the werewolf king and queen invited five fairies to the christening of their only son. The fairies bestowed the boy with gifts—beauty, grace, wit, and the most adorable teeth in all the land.

But before the fifth fairy could give her gift, a wicked fairy from the other Court arrived and cast a terrible curse on the baby prince. He would have a life full of tragedies, she declared, and die young, of a broken heart.

The king and queen were beside themselves with grief. It was very old, powerful magic, so there was little they could do to break it. However, the fifth fairy had yet to give her gift. The curse could not be broken, she told them, but it could be altered.

She bestowed upon the prince the gift of perseverance, so that he would never lose his will to live, even in the face of countless tragedies. And when he found the one who would stand by his side and face those tragedies with him without fail, that is when the curse would be broken. Because the fairy knew there was nothing in all the world more powerful than true love. Not even a wicked fairy’s curse.

A Heart is a Heavy Burden by lielabell | 41,242

In Which Stiles: is accosted by unhappy witches, becomes friends with fire demons, is rescued by darkly handsome wizards, discovers hidden inner depths, is introduced to princes, and finds true love. Though not necessarily in that order.

Prince Charming by morganoconner | 6,192

Stiles may not be anyone’s idea of a knight in shining armor, but he’s got this saving the princess thing down.

…As long as no one tells Derek that he’s the princess in this metaphor.

Burning Glances (Turning Heads) by Yiichi | 28,471

Stiles is a lower-class tailor, who has always dreamed of attending the fabled, annual Hale ball. His good friend, Lord McCall, somehow managed to procure an extra invite.

Stiles doesn’t expect anything of the evening. He certainly doesn’t expect to capture the gaze of a dark, mysterious stranger wearing a wolf mask.

The Dog Prince by JenNova | 2,129

The puppy shows up outside Stiles’ back door on the first day of his last summer in Beacon Hills. It’s probably the cutest dog he’s ever seen, wolfish enough that it must be a Husky mix of some kind, and when it tilts its head at him his heart melts. He’d be embarrassed by that but, seriously, cutest puppy ever.

Once Upon A Dream by stilinskisparkles | 11,495

Derek watches as Melissa and Queen Claudia move towards the courtyard, Scott and his fairy friends following quickly. The baby makes a small cry as they disappear, and Derek moves towards them on instinct, drawn to it without explanation. Talia catches his shoulder and holds him still, though.

“Not yet, Derek, sweetheart,” she murmurs. “You can’t follow, yet.”

A Cinderfella Story by yerawizardjane | 19,389

A Cinderella Story AU: Stiles thinks he has found his soulmate online in a Yale chatroom, under the name 'B@man’. Little does he know that it’s the most popular guy in school…Derek Hale.

It’s damn hard to be one fearsome and intimidating Sith Lord, when you’re, like, five-feet-three. Maybe I’m exaggerating a bit, but Revan, especially female doesn’t look much taller… Revan’s flashback on Dantooine, where s/he’s with Malak - and a good head shorter - is hilarious XD
S/he probably turned to the Dark Side, because of no one taking him/her seriously.

And Mandalore the Ultimate probably died of laughter.

Elsword PSA: Who are the good guys?

This PSA was requested by the-lost-one-out! If there’s a particular topic you would like me to talk about for the next PSA, ask me!

So as many of you probably know, I made a post explaining that there isn’t one particular job path that is always the darkest path. I then talked about which classes were the darkest in my opinion. Now, I’ll be discussing the good guys! Which class is the “good” side? And is it always the “Imperial” class?

In case you don’t know, fans have come up with terms to describe each of the three job paths, generally called “Imperial”, “Rebellion”, and “Transform”. They’re roughly defined as:

  • Imperial: the class that improves their original powers and abilities, and is generally more elegant and calm.
  • Rebellion: the class that uses a fighting style opposite of their original training, and is generally more reckless and dangerous
  • Transform: the class that uses a completely new power to fight, usually involving a transformation, whether its a literal transformation or an inner transformation

This post is going to be a lot harder to go through than the “dark side” post, because choosing the good class between the two remaining ones is difficult for certain characters. But, I’ll try my best. So here we go!

Elsword: Lord Knight vs. Rune Slayer

See how tough this is going to be? One could say the “good guy” is Lord Knight, since he becomes more noble and chivalrous. However, Rune Slayer isn’t “bad”; he just has a different fighting style. Also, his motives for using fire and runes isn’t a bad one either. It’s just to improve his magical attacks and cover up his weaknesses.

Overall, I’d say LK is more on the “good” side. Based on what I understand about him, he’s more noble and fights to protect others. But again, it doesn’t make RS a bad guy. If you picked RS as the better of the two, or you decided they’re both equally “good”, that’s certainly reasonable.

Aisha: Elemental Master vs. Dimension Witch

For Aisha, we have two different types of “good”. EM is “good” because she follows her mentor’s example and is able to master the four elements. DW is “good” because she’s a f*cking magical girl! Sparkles and bright colors, oh my! She supposedly takes on this personality against her will, but even if this is true, it doesn’t make her a bad character. However, if Madoka Magica has taught me anything, it’s that the life of a magical girl isn’t necessarily fun and full of happiness. Then again, that’s just Madoka Magica.

I’m going to say neither of them is “better” than the other. One is an elegant magician, while the other is a sparkly heroine. If you think one of them has more goodness than the other, that’s totally cool, but for me, I’ll say they’re equally good.

(but VP is still the best Aisha class imo)

Rena: Grand Archer vs. Wind Sneaker 

Grand Archer is the “good” one here, because Wind Sneaker is scary! I mean, she breaks people’s bones. “That arm of yours? Lemme break that for you. Oh, you don’t want me to do that? I’ll break your legs instead! While I’m at it, I’ll kick you some more, and maybe even finish you off with a Violent Attack. After that, I’ll just sit here in this circle that heals me and my friends (no, you’re not my friend. I’m not sharing). Oh, you managed to kill me? Nope. I’m back from the dead, dummy! Lemme break your bones even more!”

And what’s GA have to compare? Arrows. Sure, arrows hurt and all, but I’d rather be sniped from a distance than have someone come up to me and destroy all the bones in my body. Ouch! You know, I’m starting to reconsider choosing NW as the “dark path” in my other post…

Raven: Blade Master vs. Veteran Commander

This is actually a somewhat tough decision. You’d think BM is the obvious “good guy”, since he doesn’t give in to the insanity that is represented by arm. He decides to become a better swordsman instead, which carries an air of calmness and elegance. However, Veteran Commander is also able to avoid the insanity. He just does it differently.

VC seems to accept the arm as a part of himself, rather than attempting to ignoring it like BM. At the same time, he doesn’t go too far like RF, who begins to lose himself due to the arm’s influence. Instead, he modifies it, essentially “taming” his darker side. There’s the overheat system that you have to worry about, but as VC continues in his journeys, he’s able to adjust the arm so it doesn’t harm him as much.

Similar to what I said with Aisha’s paths, the path of elegance isn’t the only good path. Accepting who you are, or in Raven’s case, what he’s become, then working with that to use it to your advantage is also something that can be considered a good solution.

Once again, I will say neither. BM is the more obvious choice, but if you dig deeper, you might find that VC isn’t such a bad person either.

Eve: Empress vs. Battle Seraph

Code: Empress is the “good” path, imo. Unlike her sisters, she creates assistants, rather than focusing on destruction and annihilation. Eve wasn’t designed to be a battle-type Nasod, so instead of changing herself to be one, she calls upon her Nasod summons to fight for her. In this path, she continues to act as a queen, carefully ordering her subordinates and carrying that air of calm and elegance.

Chung: Iron Paladin vs. Tactical Trooper (vs. Deadly Chaser)

It's reeeeallly hard to choose Chung’s “good” side. IP is your typical Guardian, fighting to protect others and improving his durability and defense. TT, however, isn’t a bad guy. He just uses “Disfrozen”, which is more destructive, but not evil. Furthermore, his intentions aren’t evil either. You can even bring DC into the discussion. Although I named him the darker path in my “dark side” post, the only reason for that was because people identified him as an assassin, rather than a guardian. Aside from that, he’s still a “good” person and hasn’t completely fallen to the dark side. 

I’ll say all of Chung’s paths are “good”. None of his paths are definitively “more good” than the others, and none of them are evil. I suppose Chung shall forever remain as the good, little girl boy we’ve always known and loved. 

Ara: Sakra Devanam vs. Yama Raja vs. Asura

I’m bringing in everyone for this one, because between YR and Asura, it’s really hard to tell who’s the darker of the two. I also messed up in my “dark side” post and stated that YR uses demonic powers. According to 2nafish and other peeps, this isn’t the case. Sorry about that. Anyways, I think we can see which class is the “good” path. Sakra Devanam fights for justice and continues to use the techniques and fighting skills that she grew up with. Not much else to discuss here. Let’s move on to Elesis.

Elesis: Grand Master vs. Blazing Heart

Again, it’s like choosing between Elsword’s paths, LK and RS. Although BH is more aggressive and incorporates fire into her attacks, she isn’t evil. GM is the typical knight, fighting for the sake of others, but again, it’s not the only good path. Just like Elsword, I will say that GM is the “good” path, but choosing BH or neither instead is also valid.

Add: Lunatic Psyker vs. Mastermind

Mastermind. Sure, he’s still insane, but amongst his three paths, he’s the “good” path. LP is extremely aggressive, punching and kicking people with his perfected Nasod Armor and blowing up everything in front of him. And DE is… DE. Mastermind continues down his “scientist” path and creates drones installations to assist him in battle. He’s the most elegant of the three (look at dat outfit. And the hair!) and isn’t quite as aggressive. Of course, you shouldn’t estimate this guy (phantom seeker, his cube HA, etc.)

If you look back, you’ll see that although I named a couple of the Imperial classes as the good guys, there are also several examples where the Rebellion or Transform classes can be considered good as well. Just like the “dark” side, the “good” side isn’t tied with one particular job path. This post was more ambiguous than the other one, so there are a lot more classes to consider when deciding who’s the good guy. But as you can see, it isn’t easy to conclude that the Imperials are the most “good”.

So remember: Imperial, Rebellion, and Transform aren’t terms for good and evil. They’re just general terms to group the various fighting styles out there

dilfwolf  asked:

please tell me that you have modern royalty/medieval royalty/any kind of royalty au recs.

Historical Royalty

  • Waiting Games by Jerakeen (E, 6k) Being an only child and heir to the throne, Stiles had always known he may not have the luxury of marrying for love. When he’d realized he was an omega to boot, things had taken an even more uncomfortable turn for him. Omegas are rare. An omega as the heir apparent is almost unheard of. Which is why there is no wiggle room when it comes to the tournament.
  • Phoenix by Unloyal_Ohio (E, 9k) Stiles is a prince with a secret lost in war.
  • Never Did Run Smooth by blacktofade, siredtosourwolf (E, 34k) Medieval Chasing Liberty AU: As the only son of King Stilinski, Stiles doesn’t have a lot of freedom, but he doesn’t let that stop him from traveling for days to the biggest festival of the season with a begrudging stranger, Derek.
  • Safe Harbor by helenish [part one][part two][part three][part four] [part five] [part six] [part seven][part eight] He thought—well. Stiles was kind. Polite. Insisted on a generous settlement for Derek in the prenuptial negotiations, stipulated that Derek and his descendants would retain control over the plot of land where the—the house had been. Derek had believed there was an understanding between them. After what it felt like to have his hand clasped in Stiles’ long-fingered grasp, the gentle brush of lips against his jaw, Derek had almost allowed forgotten himself, had hoped for Stiles to become forward enough to steal a real kiss in their few unchaperoned moments. He didn’t.
  • A Desperate Arrangement by mikkimouse (E, 116k) ”I’m sorry, I believe there’s something wrong with my hearing,” Stiles said. “Because I could have sworn you just told me you set up a betrothal agreement with the Hales. A betrothal agreement involving me. Me.” Scott smiled his easygoing smile and nodded, which told Stiles no, he hadn’t misheard a damn thing. After seven years of lengthy negotiations, the treaty between the Hales and the Argents has fallen apart and the two countries fell into war. Months later, there’s an uneasy truce, thanks to the intervention of King Scott McCall, but it won’t last. In a desperate attempt to maintain the peace, the Hales sign a treaty with the McCalls to marry Prince Derek to Prince Stiles Stilinski, King Scott’s brother. In the history of the world, there have been many better ideas.
  • Burning Glances (Turning Heads) by Yiichi (Not Rated, 28k) Stiles is a lower-class tailor, who has always dreamed of attending the fabled, annual Hale ball. His good friend, Lord McCall, somehow managed to procure an extra invite. Stiles doesn’t expect anything of the evening. He certainly doesn’t expect to capture the gaze of a dark, mysterious stranger wearing a wolf mask.
  • I Am Your Liege by relenafanel (M, 2k)  “I will not kneel to a false king,” Stiles bellowed. “I kneel to no man or woman so long as there is breath in my lungs and ground beneath my feet. My father brought prosperity to this land, and I shall reclaim my birthright and drive out the usurper with you, my loyal knights by my side. For freedom and country!” He reined in his horse, leading it with a sharp nudge until he slid in beside his most loyal knights: McCall, Argent, and Hale. “For you,” Sir Derek said in a low voice. “For the kingdom,” Stiles agreed.
  • Like Heaven Catching Lightning by weathervaanes (E, 43k)  Prince Stiles of Cor has always known, somewhere in the back of his mind, that he was never truly going to marry for love. Fighting it has only made it worse. Now, presented with a choice between two children of the Hale family of Ignis, Derek and Cora, he must make the decision to determine who will rule by his side. If only it were that simple. “Tell me,” he says, taking a drink. “If your sister does accept me as her husband, would you be pleased for her fortune or yours?” Derek sets down the pitcher and moves further into the room, removing his vest and setting it over a chair. “I don’t believe that’s a fair question. If she finds happiness in your kingdom, by your side, of course I’ll be pleased for her.” “And relieved, I imagine.” Derek turns, arms crossed over his chest. “Would you be?”
  • The Well of Living Waters by kalpurna (E, 30k) King Derek takes a consort.
  • and the wild things roared their terrible roar by hoars (E, 5k) Derek as Khal Drogo (but set in snow beyond the wall) and Stiles as Daenerys Stormborn (although he’s a greenseer of the Children rather than a dragon).
  • With Warmest Regards (Affectionately Yours) by asocialfauxpas House Hale and House Stilinski form an alliance through the betrothal of Prince Derek and Prince Stiles. Having only met once before, they write letters to get to know one another. 
  • Hoards of Gold and Treasure by RiniRhyme (T, 8k) Slaying dragons, saving princesses—these are things that all princes are wont to do and Prince Derek is no exception. Excepting for the fact that Stiles isn’t a princess and the dragon isn’t as vicious as it seems.
  • Untitled by stilinskisparkles (Not Rated, 11k) “Glad to be of assistance,” Derek says snarkily, and the man laughs. It’s more mesmerizing to see in person than it was to hear from afar. Derek swallows, tilts his head to one side, “Do I—I feel as though I know you.” The man startles and blinks rapidly at Derek, long eyelashes fluttering against his cheeks, “It’s so funny, I was thinking the same…” he trails off, and then moves into Derek’s space with his hand outstretched, “We’ve never met, but I’m Stiles.” (Sleeping Beauty AU). 
  • untitled by matildajones (Not Rated, 3k) Derek shakes his head. “Sorry to disturb you, your highness.” Stiles catches his arm before he can step away. “I wish you wouldn’t call me that.”  “Goodnight, your highness,” Derek repeats. His room is at the opposite end of the castle and it takes everything not to follow him.
  • let down your hair by Hiyami (T, 7k) Stiles takes it carefully, half afraid he’s going to drop it. “What is it?” he asks.“It’s a mirror,” she tells him, refastening the strange button-like closures on her bag. “It will show you anything that you want to see in the present. You won’t be able to see the past or future, but you’ll be able to see and hear anything going on in the world as long as it’s happening right then.” [suicide attempt cw]
  • To the Edge of Night by secondstar (E, 40k) With the threat of war looming over his country, Stiles vows to help his king. As the King’s Thief, he will do anything, steal anything that his king asks of him no matter the cost. Stiles never backs down from a challenge, even if that challenge is stealing peace.
  • The One With The Scottish Wolf Lord by Stoney (E, 12k)  The Hales are alive and a royal family in Scotland; Stiles is the waif sent to work in the kitchens, elevated to personal attendant/servant to the young Lord Hale. Who happens to be a wolf who can’t shift back. 
  • untitled by grimm (Not Rated, 1k)  They are to be married upon the crown prince’s arrival in the kingdom, though the journey takes him the better part of two weeks. Derek is waiting outside the day he arrives, along with most of the castle staff and several noble families. His palms itch with sweat as the carriage pulls up in front of him, his stomach tense with nerves and anticipation. He knows next to nothing about the crown prince, except that he’s said to have a sparkling wit; Derek doesn’t even know what he looks like. His mouth goes dry when a manservant opens the carriage door and the prince unfolds himself from inside, stepping down onto the smooth stones. He’s tall and lean, with long, coltish legs, elegant hands, a proud set to his shoulders. His eyes meet Derek’s and Derek’s dismayed to see nothing but anger and disdain in them, his mouth set in a grim, fixed line.
  • A Devotion by troubleiwant (M, 77k) There’s a boy exiting the doors as they approach. Where Derek is tan from hours outside, the boy is pale except for a few beauty marks on one cheek. He’s dressed in fine riding clothes, and flanked by a guard wearing the sign of the royal house. A noble, then. He’s younger than Derek, but, considering his higher station, a bow would be appropriate. Despite that, Derek can’t help looking curiously at the boy, who’s looking back at Derek with just as much interest. For a moment, their eyes meet - the boy’s are a deep amber in the sunlit courtyard, ringed by long, tawny lashes.A gloved hand smacks the back of Derek’s head and he instinctively flinches away, hunching his shoulders. He loses track of the other boy as they pass one another, and as he turns to get another look, the knight grabs his shoulder and marches him forward into the stable.“Keep your eyes to yourself,” the knight instructs. “And next time, show the proper respect to Crown Prince Stiles.”
  • The King And The Spare by eeyore9990, qafmaniac (M, 12k) The young, newly-crowned King of Bohemia is in search of a spouse. Both Derek Hale and his sister Cora had the appallingly bad taste to be born so far down the hierarchy of royalty in their home land of Moravia as to be unnecessary to their own royal lineage but still too high born to be anything other than the consort to the royal house of another country.
  • untitled by anonymous (Not Rated, 2k) Stiles had been dragged into the castle to bear witness to probably the best kept secret in the country. “Shit,” he breathes, “That’s Prince Derek.”
  • untitled by banshee-cheekbones (Not Rated, 2k) Stiles spent most of his early years being afraid of Derek.  At first, it’d simply been due to his status as a prince, but after it became clear that Derek wanted people to treat him as an equal, he’d been scared simply because of how naturally intimidating the guy was. He had a habit of silently popping up in dark corners or sneaking into one of the training rooms and only making his presence known when Stiles or one of the other trainees messed up a spell.  He quickly lost count of the number of times  that Derek’s unexpected presence had almost given him a heart attack.But even though Derek was more than a little scary and frustratingly hard to get a read on, as he grew older, Stiles found it difficult to stay away from him.
  • If I die before my time, bury me upside down by ElisAttack (T, 2k) The boy is all of sixteen years old, a too large crown of gold resting on his head. The boy is sixteen years old, and Derek knows he would die for him. Or the one where Stiles is a young King, barely holding onto power, and Derek is his most trusted knight.

Modern Royalty

  • Once Upon A December by M_Leigh (G, 17k) Scott would not have thought, years ago in the orphanage, that being befriended by Stiles would ultimately mean sneaking into the Archduke of Russia’s residence in Paris in order for Stiles to chase after the homeless man of his dreams, but he’s gotten very good, over the years, at rolling with the punches.
  • This Kind of Luxe by horchatita394, weathervaanes, wishingonalightningbolt (E, 15k)  As they have for almost every US President since the 1910s, the Prime Minister and the royal head of their country pay a visit to the United States after inauguration. Which is why, when President Jonathan Stilinski is elected into office, Queen Talia Hale of Norland plans their trip.
  • Untitled by thepsychicclam (Not Rated, 3k) “Getting fingerprints on my car?” a familiar voice asks. Stiles smiles and lifts his eyes to find Derek walking towards him from the work room in the back. He’s shirtless, covered in dirt and grease, and wiping his hands on a soiled rag as he approaches Stiles. “I think you mean my car,” Stiles counters. “I practically put it together.” Derek scoffs. “I think you’re mistaken, your highness. I put the car together while you asked a thousand questions, handed me tools from your perch on my workbench, and ogled my ass.”
  • the prince and me by matildajones (T, 3k) Stiles moves to America for college. He comes from a country no one has heard of that still has the outdated concept of kings and queens and princes and princesses. He sort of hates it, hates the rules he can never break, hates the pressure of being in the public eye. He needs a taste of freedom – of a simple life where things like royalty doesn’t matter so much. Hopefully college will be the answer.
  • The Christmas Raffle by mikkimouse (E, 10k)  Every year, the royal Hale family raffles off a Christmas dinner with Prince Derek to raise money for charity. But this year, the winner is the second chance Derek didn’t know he was looking for.
  • I already miss you by trilliastra (T, 1k) Stiles is going to be the king of his own kingdom and will probably have to marry some nice lady while Derek will just die alone in a farm house full of cats. It’s what Cora says, anyway.
  • untitled by matildajones (Not Rated, 10k)  Derek remembers those big, brown eyes. Those are the eyes of the man who saved him, and as much as Derek tries to forget everything that happened to him he knows he can’t. Especially not tonight.
  • Jumping Ship by helahound (G, 2k) “You want me to steal a prince?” Stiles exclaimed. He might have also flailed a little too enthusiastically and knocked over the potted plant on Lydia’s desk.Lydia let out a long-suffering sigh, fixing him with an unamused glare as she righted the plant and brushed dirt off her books.

********************************************************

‘I candidly admit that in my practice I have not found any reliable example of the knight of faith, though I would not therefore deny that every second man may be such an example. I have been trying, however, for several years to get on the track of this, and all in vain. People commonly travel around the world to see rivers and mountains, new stars, birds of rare plumage, queerly deformed fishes, ridiculous breeds of men – they abandon themselves to the bestial stupor which gapes at existence, and they think they have seen something. This does not interest me. But if I knew where there was such a knight of faith, I would make a pilgrimage to him on foot, for this prodigy interests me absolutely. I would not let go of him for an instant, every moment I would watch to see how he managed to make the movements, I would regard myself as secured for life, and would divide my time between looking at him and practicing the exercises myself, and thus would spend all my time admiring him. As was said, I have not found any such person, but I can well think him. Here he is. Acquaintance made, I am introduced to him. The moment I set eyes on him I instantly push him from me, I myself leap backwards, I clasp my hands and say half aloud, “Good Lord, is this the man? Is it really he? Why, he looks like a tax-collector!

He somehow is able to balance a large, active family and a very busy and involved superhero lifestyle in addition to his normal day job. Women everywhere sigh in jealousy that Batman has achieved every woman’s goal: The perfect balance of work and family.

No one knows how he does it. Women’s magazines speculate on how Gotham’s Dark Knight reared his four Robins, three Batgirl and lord knows who else while keeping up with his work. They even give tips on how to be more like him.  He ends up becoming a feminist icon proving that you can be a good parent and scare the pants off of Gotham at the same time, though literally in his case.

The JLA thinks it’s hilarious, even though they too want the secret to Batman’s organized lifestyle. The kids alternating between laughing at him and scoffing at the implication that he did okay. (“Jason and Damian both died. Dick’s never been all there and have you see Tim lately???”). Bruce, meanwhile ignores the teasing and the requests to be interviewed by Gotham Woman Today. The true secret is he has no idea what he’s doing. He just staggers around and has Alfred do the rest.

A class for all and all classes for one

Last time I submitted something it was trying to analyze all the pokemon from the Greninja trailer… Now have something much, much longer.

Y’know I wonder if Sakurai even played fire Emblem: Awakening? I mean, not to bash on him or what he has done with the two FE:A newcomers, but I feel like there could’ve been more?

Anyways, here come some light FE:A spoilers.

Prince Imrahil's Appearance

Tolkien doesn’t really describe his characters intimately enough to get much of a sense for age (especially the men.) As for describing Imrahil’s appearance in general… well, here’s what we’ve got:

But beyond, in the great fief of Belfalas, dwelt Prince Imrahil in his castle of Dol Amroth by the sea, and he was of high blood, and his folk also, tall men and proud with sea-grey eyes.

and

And last and proudest, Imrahil, Prince of Dol Amroth, kinsman of the Lord, with gilded banners bearing his token of the Ship and the Silver Swan, and a company of knights in full harness riding grey horses; and behind them seven hundreds of men at arms, tall as lords, grey-eyed, dark-haired, singing as they came.

and finally

At length they came to the Prince Imrahil, and Legolas looked at him and bowed low; for he saw that here indeed was one who had elven-blood in his veins.

So, looking at these descriptions combined, we can safely assume that Imrahil had dark hair, grey eyes, was pretty tall, and was probably pretty good-looking (a combination of Legolas immediatley recognizing him as having elvish blood, and also the fact that he was once referred to as “Imrahil the Fair.”
