but can we talk about how he gave him his match worn jersey from his first PL goal!!!!
let me set it up for you. this was not some publicity visit arranged by the spurs PR team. this was not some carefully crafted moment set with a boom mic and proper lighting. this was a family desperate to make their sick son’s dreams come true reaching out to dele’s family. this was doubt that the busy footballer would actually take the time to stop in on his day off between travelling back to England after a taxing cl game and other obligations already arranged for that day.
this was dele looking in his wardrobe that morning and wondering what he could possibly bring to someone so young and so sick other than his own presence (as if that wouldn’t have made it everything anyway!), and seeing something he’s cherished for over a year and probably would have for the rest of his life. something priceless to him. did he even hesitate?
2 days. 2 days between little Tony’s parents reaching Dele’s and Dele showing up next to his hospital bed and spending a few hours playing FIFA and leaving behind something of sentimental value to both of them, and not just the memories.
And every day someone will use religion as a way to cover up their bigotry, and every day someone’s heart will break because someone they love can’t seem to open up theirs. Your brain is a tool, you have the right to your own beliefs, but what happens when they hurt the people you claim to love? Your God is your God. Or maybe there’s many or maybe there’s none but don’t let any of it dictate the possibility of happiness for someone who doesn’t conform to your ideas on how and why things are the way they are. They deserve to be happy, just like you deserve to have your own opinion. You don’t have to agree, but you do have to allow others to make their own decisions without emotional abuse tied to their birth right.
So it's been a while but I just thought of a headcanon for Blackmadhi. I saw this post about how many descriptive food related things Nahyuta has said, and I give you: Nahyuta LOVES food. He's one of those people you meet who can out eat people twice their size. Blackquill thought he ate a lot but the first time he takes Nahyuta out to eat the monk just destroys him, scarfing down food while still managing to be beautiful and mind his manners. Needless to say Blackquill just can't keep up.
Oh my god this is amazing tysm.
And like, Simon probably actually doesn’t eat too much; prison life made him kind of accustomed to eating not too often outside of regular meal times and he got used to sometimes being hungry and so I actually imagine that he sometimes forgets to eat, especially while he is working and everything. And he won’t notice hunger until he actually pays attention to it.
So for their first date, Simon and Nahyuta go to a burger place - they played rock, paper, scissors for the restaurant pick and Nahyuta won so he dragged Simon…who pretended to be annoyed but also found it somewhat endearing.
Simon ends up getting something kind of small - although the place specializes in different gourmet-style burgers, he orders something else. (Sometimes I hc Simon as vegetarian for some reason??? I’M NOT SOLD ON IT but idk he definitely doesn’t eat any birds like chicken or turkey imo.) He looks puzzled when Nahyuta orders like the biggest and most elaborate burger on the menu and then asks for it to be sized up. And he also requests an extra side.
Their food comes and Nahyuta’s takes up more than half the table, and at some point, Simon just…watches. Nahyuta doesn’t eat sloppily or without manners. Actually, his manners are impeccable, which is why watching him just engorge this gigantic meal in front of him is so fascinating. The bites he takes are gigantic and fast, and Simon vaguely wonders if Nahyuta even really chews his food before swallowing. Nahyuta doesn’t eat or chew while speaking, but when it is Simon’s turn to talk, he just devours, all while remaining as beautiful and otherworldly as he always is.
It’s like watching a god inhale human food.
And because it is so interesting, Simon eats even slower, and by the time Nahyuta finishes his entire spread, Simon’s only about a third of the way done with his.

*Likely victor #1. Can and will not hesitate to kill those who look easy to him. May rethink about hurting Yixing and possibly ally with him and Kyungsoo.*
“This tribute came here to win.”
*He may take out two or three members before being killed himself (by a trap or natural causes). He’s likely to ally up with Sehun.*
*May be second or third to victor because no one wants to kill him. He uses this newfound advantage to get closer to the weapons and or lure the members to each other. Allies up with Minseok and supplies him with sustenance when he’s out hunting. But in the end, he’d probably be taken out by a natural cause rather than be killed.*
“Minseok, I got this knife from Junmyeon. Will you need it?”
*Most likely to die first. His reaction to bugs doesn’t help at all when he finds the tracker jackers or any other insects in the arena. His screaming at them draws the members closer. Allies up with Chanyeol, possibly.*
“Why are there so many bugs?! They don’t supply us with bug spray but empty water cans.”
*Honestly, Jongdae would survive long out of pure luck. At most, he’d stay alive for a week and a half. He’d probably set up some traps but only catches animals. The best he did was try and catch Sehun but Sehun’s bigger and struggles too much to kill. He’d hide in a tree until one of the members shoot him with an arrow maybe.*
*Also most likely be first to die. Yes, he’s been in the jungle twice but this is a game against humans. He’d try to hunt down animals and get some sort food but he’s also going to be like that girl from the first movie and light a fire in the middle of the night. Allies with Baekhyun.*
“I don’t know who set that trap up but thanks for catching this animal. Baekhyun, light a fire, we’re feasting tonight.*
*Likely victor #2. He’d have an alliance with Minseok but the thing is, he won’t be alongside Minseok. They’d run into each other somewhere in the arena inform the other about the members whereabouts before moving on. He’d be up, hidden in a tree somewhere, just watching his members go one by one, occasionally taking a sip of his water or sharpening his weapons.*
“Yes Chanyeol, eat the berries I laid out.”
*Sad to say but probably 3rd or fourth to die. This is a kid who put nail polish on his lips because he thought it was lip balm. Jongin would probably be out because of poisonous berries or animals. Probably walk into a trap.*
*He’d be 4th or 5th to die because of his stature. He’s pretty tall so it’s easy to spot him anywhere. The reason he’s 4th or 5th is because of his alliance with Junmyeon. He did well in the training arena but all that knowledge was forgotten when the real thing happens because he’s running away for his life.*
I hope this was somewhat funny.
ASK BOX IS CLOSED. I am not taking scenario requests at the moment, just reaction requests.
I still like Ronaldo even tho people are saying he is ‘problematic’. Like I know he has flaws, everyone does. He’s a fictional character if he was perfect he would be boring and so would any fictional character.
I meant to have this ready by Christmas, but better late than ever. This is a fic (drabble really) for @waifujuju as a thank you for all the art she made this holiday season. It’s AU with her favorite trope: Puppet!Cloud.
Sephiroth stirred from his light doze when he realized that Cloud wasn’t there. Nearby…according to his connection with his little puppet. Sephiroth stood up to peer around the corner…on the balcony.
“Trouble sleeping?” he asked. Cloud jumped and looked back.
“A little…I keep having flashes…but they’re all wrong,” Cloud admitted. Sephiroth suspected as much.
“What do you see?” Sephiroth asked.
“You,” Cloud said, “and you…you’re burning…”
“I see,” Sephiroth said, “but you know that’s not what happened.” He put a gentle hand on Cloud’s shoulder. He was getting a bit attached to this game, how much more easily Cloud would let himself believe the lies he fed him.
“I know,” Cloud said, his voice cracking a little. He held his head, not even realizing it was aching at this point.
“It was them, Cloud,” Sephiroth said, “the ShinRa. They’ve done all of this. To all of us.”
“I know,” Cloud said, “but…I keep seeing it.”
“Is that what…” Sephiroth took a moment to remember her name, “Tifa, said happened. It was all so…terrible…confusing. You can’t blame her for having the wrong story.”
“I know I don’t,” Cloud said, “I’m…just.”
“Shh,” Sephiroth hushed him, “You, Zack, and I tried to stop the attack on Nibelheim after we found out they had performed experiments in the Manor and in the Reactor. We failed. You and Zack were captured. I was presumed dead. That’s the story Cloud.” Cloud nodded.
“I know,” he said, his headache bleeding away as Sephiroth stopped his manipulations. Cloud was compliant again.
“So what are we going to do?”
“Stop them,” Cloud said, his eyes going a lovely shade of green for an instant.
“But, first we sleep,” Sephiroth said. Cloud barely noticed when Sephiroth made his take his hand, rest his head on his shoulder.
This had been a wonderful experiment. The cetra girl, as clever and brave as she had proven herself to be, certainly could put a hold on his plans to summon meteor…but she couldn’t stop him from playing this little game with Cloud.
He could make Cloud do anything, feel anything, and believe anything he wanted and Sephiroth rather liked playing with those small little bits Cloud seemed…a little too eager to do.
“Was there something you wanted to say Cloud?” Sephiroth asked. Cloud still wouldn’t quite get it out on his own.
Say it, Sephiroth thought to him, say it to me.
“I love you Sephiroth,” Cloud murmured.
Sephiroth knew there was something sick in twisted in the way that he enjoyed making Cloud say that. When one was planning on ending the world though…you might as well have as much fun as you can before you start the countdown.
Let me just say I am not the best at coloring or backgrounds but I wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone as a thank you for letting your art inspire me and always chatting with me on twitter, its amazing how nice of a person you are.
And Ally, your OC Shui is wonderful, I hope I did him some justice. (and sorry for being so mushy hahaha)
Levi meeting this man with stunning eye color. It’s a honey golden that catches the light and just seems to… glow. Thinking about the man and his intense golden gaze makes his chest freeze and he has to take a moment to relearn how to breathe.
And then he tries to describe his eyes to his friend Hanji and he’s just like “They’re like… when you don’t drink very much water and your piss comes out really yellow.”
