Please rate the Lancers so the world may have a clear and obvious objective base on which Lancers are the best characters because subjectivity isn't real and it is clear you are the expert on all things Lancer and thus are qualified to be the definitive objective source for all opinions on Lancers. (or just share some other lancers you think are cool and maybe some you wish had been done better that's fine too)

the best lancer which is why he’s the one everyone thinks of when you say ‘lancer’. the beauty. the muscles. the spandex. the personality. the voice. the colour palette. the archetype he represents. the way he fits into the rest of the fate cast. his skillset. his animations. the ultimate. the absolute. could’ve just stopped making lancers after this one bc they’ll never top this one. EX/10

handsome. entry level thirst but that’s not necessarily bad. victimises himself a lot in zero so people going uwu poor baby on him piss me off just a lil because both the situation with grainne and with sola was supposed to be morally ambiguous and out of everyone’s control. I like how he’s a good example of how feitos are kinda doomed to repeat the same mistakes of their legend. my top fav until I played fsn and learnt what true love is (its cu). 8/10

a good boy! a handsome boy! a boy of many talents! just wants to help at all times but never learnt how to mince words so he comes across as the absolute rudest fucker. in ccc he lists “his own poor communication skills” as the thing he dislikes. 10/10

wants to clear his name as bloodthirsty vampire but only the vampire part because he knows what he did and he won’t try to deny it, he just wants to clear up the things that were added later he didn’t do. very good and nuanced. very spicy uncle. I’m not saying I want to fuck vlad I’m just saying that if vlad were to come up to me and ask me if I wanted to fuck I would not say no. 9/10 I should actually read apocrypha sometime

spicier uncle but less personality. 8/10 why did he have to be a package deal with that fucking clown

pls no bully. treated as kind of a joke a lot but a really nice character if you pay attention. absolutely as bloodthristy and evil as her legends but all because she was genuinely never taught different and therefore doesn’t realise her actions are evil and the reason she is hated. desperate to be loved because her literal life depended on it. later on starts to slowly realize just how fuckedth she is and tries to make amends even though she knows full well she can’t possibly ever make up for everything she did. hates her future self’s guts because she knows what she did will make her end up like that but still wants to change it somehow because this time she knows it was wrong. 10/10 please god let CCC get localised

if i see one more fucker say she has no personality I will FIGHT I love her. insanely powerful and worked hard for it but because of it reached a point where none of her achievements are achievements anymore and instead are just something she would’ve done eventually bc she has all the time in the world for it. claims to want to die but actually just wants to feel alive again. actually pretty easily excited especially when fights to the death are involved but feels like she has to keep up a composed teacher front. an overcompetent mess who has no idea how to do anything without doing the Most. 100/10

now THERE’s a lancer girl with no personality. I’m sorry bryn you’re beautiful beyond belief but fragments has a bad writer and I hope you get to shine in fgo sometime bc that’s what saved arash and ozymandias 7/10 

treated entirely as a joke in fgo so far and mostly known in fate for getting cucked but his legend has a lot more and is actually pretty cool so I hope he gets to be taken seriously sometime too. dressed up as a baby once to avoid fighting a dude bigger than him. stabbed himself in the face to avoid falling into a magic sleep and then fucked up a dude another time. now that’s what I call a grab bag of a character! 7/10

100% YOUAERE My FUCKIGN GI>RLFREIONGD 10/10

dirt friend 10/10

whose fucking child is this

whom?

HOUSE PLANTS: A GUIDE
(written by Gráinne)

Houseplants today are becoming subjects just like our pieces of furniture, we like to adorn our homes and bedrooms with the things! Whether it be the orchid in the ‘designer loft’ or mugs of succulents covered all of our window sills, most of us seem to love a good house plant. Here are some of my own personal favourites, a bit of history (please do not be alarmed!) and the basics of caring for them. So sit back and take in the knowledge of the houseplant:

Shame on me for not posting this gorgeous photo by @amiephoto sooner! Bringing Final Fantasy Mermaids to life with her and @grainne-sea (Instagram) and @purpledemoncosplay (whose wig and ribbon I’m borrowing) was one of my absolute favorite photoshoot experiences of all time

kay so y'all ever heard of Grace O'Malley????

or, more commonly referred to as The Pirate Queen

this woman is incredible

so she was the daughter of a chieftain in Ireland in the 1500s right? and their clan was big on sailing and stuff which was uncommon for an Irish clan of the time. and by “sailing” they were basically just pirates. they’d attack foreign ships and make them pay to cross Clew Bay. 

and so Grace (or Grainne) was awesome at being a pirate, even though it was looked down upon for a woman to be plundering the high seas. and her father recognized that, so when he died, she inherited the clan and all the ships and stuff. 

she married this guy, but found out that he was a super lame ass coward trying to surrender to England (cuz they were trying to take over Ireland) to save his ass so she told him to hit the road. then she married another guy but only because he had a big castle and divorced him soon after the marriage but kept the castle. 

just an example of her incredible leadership skills: there was news that an English ship would be attacking one of the towns of her clan, so she wanted to go and stop them. however, her husband at the time told her she couldn’t because she’s a woman and he’s a douche. but it turned out that they had received false information. the attack was going to be on the town that Grace was in, because Queen Elizabeth fucking hated Grace. because all of the men had gone to defend the other town, Grace rallied up all the women who were there and they held off the English soldiers till the men arrived. 

this woman was one of the strongest opponents to Queen Elizabeth I’s attempts to conquer Ireland. at the beginning, Elizabeth hated her, however they eventually met and hit it off. probably because they saw something of themselves in each other. and even when she was 72 years old, she was still off plundering the high seas and respected by all. this would be an enormous accomplishment for anyone but for a woman in the 1500s to do this is absolutely incredible. 

also there’s a musical about her called the Pirate Queen

Presenting a Badass Warrior Babe

External image

Ok listen up bitches, this lady here is Gráinne Ní Mháille (also known as Grace O'Malley).  This woman is a babe and should be known for her badass awesomeness. In brief, this warrior;

  • Led a massive horde of Vikings, Celts, and Scottish highlanders as pirates around Ireland.
  • Her dad told her that her hair was too long meaning she couldn’t go to sea, so she cut off all her hair to prove a point.
  • When her husband was killed, she raised an army and re-took her castle from rebels.
  • Controlled pretty much all of the coast of Ireland
  • Waged into battle immediately after giving birth
  • When refused entry to Howth castle, she kidnapped the lord’s grandson, and made him agree to always leave the gates open to visitors and to always set an extra place at dinner, just in case she ever came again.
  • Poured molten lead onto English soldiers who tried to attack.
  • When her sons and brothers were kidnapped by the English, she traveled to London, and convinced Queen Elizabeth to set them free. She also spoke Latin to the Queen, as she refused to speak in English

NEVER DEFEATED

NEVER CONQUERED

the worlds most amazing babe ever.

When war breaks out again – uneasy trade and border agreements finally buckling under the strain of regional politics, prejudice, and greed – Vivian and Freya get hideously drunk on Nemethean cider and cheap champagne. They douse all the lights and lie in the back garden, holding hands and looking up, trying to find familiar stars. They don’t discuss what will happen next. They don’t need to.

Vivian makes love to Freya, there on the one small, scrubby patch of grass they’ve called their own. Then, in the morning, they head to the nearest recruitment office. The previous war snuck up on them, forced them into victims’ roles in the blink of an eye. This time around, they are determined to fight.

HEY YOU LOVABLE SCAMPS, IT’S MYTHOS TIME. WE GOING IRISH AGAIN FOR A BIT, ‘CAUSE I WANNA TELL YOU ABOUT FIONN MAC CUMHAILL.

When I say “Fionn mac Cumhaill”, most of you uncivilized, morally bankrupt apes yell “FINN MCCUCK” and make me cry, which is totally fair because you are NOT WRONG, but it turns out, Fionn’s love life is more complicated than just some cuckolding.

WE GO BACK IN TIME TO before the whole Diarmuid thing happened, but after Fionn was the leader of the Fianna Knights. ONE DAY, Fionn had gone out hunting as usual, because if there’s one thing Fionn really liked to do, that was hunting. A billion fucking minor stories begin with the lines “So Fionn was hunting when shit happened”, and this dude, in general, used it as a relaxation exercise, like, he could be in the middle of a huge fight, and he’d get stressed, so he did either of two things: 1) suck his turbo thumb for infinite salmon knowledge or 2) tell the guys “brb”, go hunt, relax, organize his thoughts, come back, win battle. Anyways, he was doing this shit, with his two hounds, Bran and Sceólang, when he came across a DEER.

Before Fionn could put three javelins through the deer, however, the dogs yelled “WOOF” but Fionn understood them because he was a Weird Dog Girl and also a dedicated hunter, so of course he could. He was like “What is wrong, Bran and Sceólang? Why do you stop me?” and see, here’s the THING: Bran and Sceólang are both hounds, but they were born from a hound who used to be a human but was turned into a hound via Magic. You know how Loki got fucked by a horse while in horse form and thus gave birth to an eight legged horse? Ok kinda similar dealio. Anyways, the thing is, since these hounds were born from a hound that used to be a human, they detected something no one else could have detected: That deer was a human transformed into a deer.

So, shit, Fionn was not about to just javelin a person, so he brought the human-deer back home to see if he could do something for them. Now, I have to remind you that Fionn was raised by two powerful moms, one of which was a druid, and as such, he knew some druidery, so his personal home and lands were enchanted by him to better suit him, kinda like a Territory Creation-esque deal. The thing is, as soon as Human-Deer set foot on Fionn’s land, since Fionn wanted to help them, his enchanted lands reacted, and undid the curse: Where once a deer stood, now stood a very beautiful woman. Fionn was like “OH”. She was like “OH” because, reminder, Fionn is one beautiful son of a gun, and also she was thankful, and she knew all sorts of cool shit. Fionn asked what happened, and she told her story, and what happened was not that Fionn’s druid shenanigans saved her, but it was his might, instead.

Her name was Sadhbh, which is Old Irish for “would you like to buy a vowel?”, and it turns out she had been a deer for three years. Three years ago, she refused to marry a druid named Fear Doirich (literally “DARK MAN” because mythology and subtlety just don’t get along), a member of the Tuatha De Danann (attentive ace detectives will remember that, in our last Fionn Storytime, Fionn killed Aillen of the Tuatha De Danann), and he got very butthurt about it, so using his Dark Druid powers (he was a dark druid, yes, this specification is made clear), he turned her into a deer, because Nice Guys Finish Last. She was initially held captive, but a servant of Fear Doirich took pity on her and released her, telling her that were she to set foot on the lands of the “dun”, which normally means fort or castle, but in this specific instance means “territory” of Fianna, which is basically anywhere that Fionn owns, Fear would have no effect on her, and thus she’d be a human again. So Sadhbh makes her way to Almhuin, which is Fionn’s house, in hopes she can regain her human form, and her gamble PAID OFF.

Fionn and Sadhbh fall in love with each other as Sadhbh spends time in his land, and the two marry. Fionn was so deeply in love with Sadhbh that he abandoned all other pleasures, including hunting and adventuring, just so he can be with her and make her happy. Soon enough, she was pregnant. Fionn and Sadhbh were truly deep in love, and the only moments in which they were not together was when Fionn was fighting a battle.

And it is during one such moments that tragedy, sadly, strikes.

Fionn was fighting the Vikings in the southern parts of Ireland when Sadhbh, who awaited in Fionn’s home, saw Fionn and his two hounds, Bran and Sceólang, returning from the battle. Elated, Sadhbh ran to meet her husband, but when she reached him, it turned out to be illusions… It was none other than Fear Doirich! With a swing and a swoosh of his hazel wand, and a powerful tip of his fedora, Sadhbh was turned into a deer once more, and he took her away.

Fionn returned only to find an empty home, bereft of joy, barren of love. His wife was gone, and he couldn’t find her. He spent seven whole years looking for her, but he never found her. At the very end of these seven years, Fionn came across a wild boy while he was hunting, and he couldn’t help but recognize some of Sadhbh’s features on his face. It turns out, that boy was his and Sadhbh’s son, Oisin.

Fionn took his son Oisin home and raised him the best he could. In time, Oisin would become the greatest poet in Ireland, as well as an extremely accomplished warrior who matched his father’s immense accomplishments, one of the fiercest Fianna Knights ever, and, most importantly, the narrator of the Fenian Cycle of Irish Mythology.

Despite all of this, however, Sadhbh was never found. This wounded Fionn deeply, and he was noticeably more grim, more bitter, since then. Not long after this incident, the High King, Cormac mac Airt, promised his daughter, Grainne, to Fionn in marriage. During the wedding feast, however, Grainne falls for a formidable Fianna Knight and friend of Fionn, a man named Diarmuid Ua Duibhne…

DC’S Legends of Tomorrow “Moonshot”

HOUSTON, WE HAVE A PROBLEM  — When the Legends track Commander Steel (guest star Matthew MacCaull) to NASA Headquarters in 1970, they learn where Nate’s (Nick Zano) grandfather hid the last fragment of the Spear of Destiny. The team notices a time aberration during the Apollo 13 mission and believes that the Legion of Doom might be involved. As the Legends journey into space to intercept Apollo 13, the Waverider suffers massive internal damage and Ray’s (Brandon Routh) life is left in jeopardy when he is stranded on the moon.

 Meanwhile, tension grows between Rip (Arthur Darvill) and Sara (Caity Lotz) as to who is the leader of the team. Victor Garber, Franz Drameh, Maisie Richarson-Sellers and Dominic Purcell also star.

Kevin Mock directed the episode written by Grainne Godfree (#214).  Original airdate 3/14/2017.

Today’s WARRIOR WOMEN WEDNESDAY drawing is Grainne O’Malley!

We call her a gazillion different things, popularly “Grace O’Malley,” but I think her Irish first name better suits her while the Anglicized last name helps for clarity in knowing who I’m talking about and finding more about her.

Not too many of these subjects have long lives with happy endings, but O’Malley oversaw her lands and seas as rich as a troll and died of old age, her kid having been ennobled and her fleet as active as ever.
