A new infographic illustrating various iconic swords in fiction. Unlike my previous movie trucks piece I did no trace work for these illustrations, as there simply weren’t any images available to trace. At least for most of them.
I drew all of the swords free hand (I really need to buy some rulers…it’s ridiculous) and I realise that some elements may be slightly out of proportion.
Rather than being an infographic (as I like infographics with as little text as possible), I’d consider this more as a kind of visual reference. Ultimately, I hope that you all approve.
50 sasusaku!! can it be him trying to convince her to stay/that he actually loves her ;~; thank you!!
50) going through a divorce, au- based on the ending fight of kill bill vol. 2, sorry I just had a hankering uwu
“i’m a killer,” he said, matter of fact, “i’m a murdering bastard, and there are consequences to breaking the heart of a murdering bastard. you experienced some of them. was my reaction,” he shrugged, “really that surprising?”
“yes,” she spoke with a bitter smile on her face, crossing her legs amid the lethal tension, “it was.” he had thought she was dead for three months. he had a right to his anger. thinking one you love is dead is a pain one cannot possibly imagine until it happens. it had been after a hit job he assigned her to that she decided to leave, to never come back, without another word. her hope had been he would think the target had gotten the best of her, killed her. he would mourn, he would live on. in an ideal world, he wouldn’t have had to hurt as he did. but this was not an ideal world, in fact, their world, she knew sometimes, was just a version of hell. it had to be that way. she always had her reasons, this time around was no different. “could you do what you did? of course you could,” a look of disgust fell on her lips, “but I never thought you would, or could, do that to me.”
“i’m sorry,” his expression was sober, almost sad, “but you thought wrong.”
sakura fought a snarl at her lip, her eyes unblinking, a fatal gaze falling over him as she tapped the tip of her encased hattori hanzo sword to the cement, “you and I have unfinished business.”
“darling,” he spoke with about as much love as one could with such resignation in their eyes, “you ain’t kidding.”
Get to Know Me [1/5] favorite female characters ↳O-Ren Ishii [Kill Bill Vol.1]
“[…]… O-Ren Ishii wasn’t the type of person who was ever gonna die peacefully in her bed, you know what I mean? She was going to die fighting and that was how it was gonna be. She died the best way that she could have ever imagined, with the Hattori Hanzo sword. So ultimately, it was a very respectful death, and I think her character is more of a survivor than someone who’s tough, you know?” - Lucy Liu (x)
10. Bill, Kill Bill Vol. 1 (2003) & Kill Bill Vol. 2 (2004)
A murdering bastard with a broken heart that give probably one of the most awesome monologue in history. I specifically like this character because he has many layers, not just a murdering brutal killer.
9. Shoshanna Dreyfus, Inglourious Basterds (2009)
In the pool of bad-ass women in Quentin’s movies, Shoshanna definitely is one of them with her strong character having survived a massacre that included her family’s murderer in front of her eyes and also she ended the third Reich (no biggie), yet a side of vulnerability and a good heart.
8. Jackie Brown, Jackie Brown (1997)
Ballsey and gettin’ into trouble with a dirty mouth & a gun at the ready making her also one of the bad-ass woman in the pool. Willing to screw over everyone & anyone to ensure her own happily ever after.
7. Vincent Vega, Pulp Fiction (1994)
The Vega brother. A man who kills people but when it comes to jabbing an adrenaline shot into his boss’s wife’s chest cause she’s O.Ding … he’s a wuss. Smooth, cautious and well, a bit of a klutz to “accidentally” pull the trigger and blow someone’s brains out in the middle of broad daylight in the car on a highway…
6. Mr. Blonde/ Vic Vega, Reservoir Dogs (1992)
The other Vega.The most ruthless Quentin villain so far in my opinion. One hell of a sinister man that made ear-slicing really enjoyable. (I say that in the most non-psycho way… *clears throat*) moving on…
5. Dr. King Schultz,, Django Unchained (2012)
A dentist/ bounty hunter. It doesn’t get better than that. A German civil rights advocate that helped poor Django on his journey to rescue his beloved . The man raised the bar of being bad-ass to a whole new level. also having an “exceptional beard” and a few tricks up his sleeve (if ya know what I mean ;))
4. Django Freeman, Django Unchained (2012)
Courage & fearlessness doesn’t even begin to describe this character. With all the burden of being a slave having to be forced to be separated from his wife and going through hell & beyond to find & rescue her becoming the “fastest gun in the south”.
3. Col. Hans Landa, Inglourious Basterds (2009)
Wow. Just wow. Of course I’m only basing this list on the characters not the portrayal of the actors, but Christoph Waltz’s portrayal is far too epic not to mention it which was the sole reason why this character has climbed it’s way to being one of the very best of Quentin’s. Hans Landa a vicious, merciless colonel in the SS who his lack of morals leads him to topple Germany to save his own ass. Also, his pipe is bigger than yours.Wait… no, I mean pipe as in the actual fuckin’ pipe that you smoke…. oii.
Kick-ass, bad-ass, strong. None of these even come close to describing a woman that’s not just one of the best female characters in Quentin movies but of all time. Pop culture’s deadliest woman that has no super powers, advanced technology or any of that. Just the thirst for vengeance and one hell of a Hattori Hanzo sword.
FINALLY, the BEST Tarantino character is…
Drum roll please.
1. Jules Winnfield, Pulp Fiction (1994)
Jules puts the E, P, I & C in EPIC!! And without a doubt I must mention Sam Jackson’s portrayal that made every letter to come out of Jules’ mouth an un-forgettable quote, and if it was played by ANYONE else, Beatrix Kiddo would be topping my list, which to be honest I wanna give em’ both the #1 spot, but Sammy’s portrayal just didn’t allow me to. A bible-reciting, burger-loving hitman that, if it’s even possible, made the legacy of 'Pulp Fiction’ even COOLER. He is by far & hands down, a gem of Tarantino & cinema history.
(Ficlet please also it's up to you what Hanzo would horde) Dragon!Hanzo hording habits and his reaction when his S/O confronts him about it?
(Art by Mod Lamb)
Sorry if this took quite long. Mod Lamb and I did a collab for this, I hope you like it, anon!
It started out as a habit. Hanzo didn’t mean for his hoarding problems to get this worse.
When he was young, he began to collect small coins wherever he goes. He thought it was just a fascination that started to be a hobby collection. He never knew that it was the dragon side of him that wanted for him to take things and it was too late when he discovered it. The coins became gold, and then jewelry, and then weapons. He began hoarding artifacts and crowns of different royal families as well. Whatever he finds pretty, he’ll impulsively take it.
His family kept telling him off; Hanzo, this is a problem, Hanzo, you need help. It’s not like he was hurting anyone, but he did understand why they would be concerned about this newfound obsession of his. Anything that shines, anything that glitters would catch his eye, and his hands would be poised to snatch, quick and nimble- like the dragon.
imagine your icon taking bottles from the fridge, pouring a nice ass cool drink and then putting the bottle back in the fridge but it just won’t shut and the fridge door just stays open that little bit, not shutting. and your icon gets frustrated and grabs that bottle, drives it to desert and slays it with a hattori hanzo sword. fuck that bottle not letting the fridge go shut
