Tom Keen Appreciation Week, Day Four: Favourite Heartbreaking Moment
This whole event broke my heart. I went into Redemption looking at both Scottie and Howard and thinking about how they compared with Bud, who had been the closest thing Tom had to a father in his life growing up. While I believe that Scottie was set up, that she probably has someone pulling her strings in the background (and potentially threatening Tom and maybe even Howard if she doesn’t meet certain expectations), and that she probably does care about Tom, the fact that she pulled this breaks my heart. Regardless of the why, think about how it looks from Tom’s POV. He trusted Bud and the moment he wasn’t useful to him the man that raised him was willing to put a bullet in his head. He goes in to find out about his mother, was ready to trust her, received evidence that made him think she was after Howard, and when the truth comes out she demands he tells her about Whitehall. When he doesn’t have the information, she orders Solomon to beat the hell out of him. To Tom, he wasn’t useful, so his mother had him beaten for what she needed, to try to force him to be useful to her.
“You’re a cold, heartless killer, who’d murder her own son if it got her what she needed.”
He believed that. Once again, it was worse than what he’d already experienced, and his experiences up until that point have been pretty horrible when it comes to parental figures.

It’s coming back ‘round
It’s coming back ‘round to get you”

i generally see Jessamine as the one initiating the whole relationship thing, but imagine the glorious moment when Corvo finally goes for it, gently cradles her chin in his huge hand, locks his gaze in hers and spouts something straight out of a terribile Tyvian romance novel that was last in print 30 years ago imagine Jessa's face then
that out of print novel was one of the previous few books back in his small Karnaca apartment, forever stored at the luxurious bathroom shelf roughly within the arm’s reach for a sitting person, or hidden under the loose floor tiles under his bed, this was like his favourite book as a boy and he would cover himself entirely with a blanket and swear the tears across his face in silent anguish during the most intense, heartbreaking moments
he literally replayed the moment when he could finally take both of her hands in his and deliver the lines that made his own young boy flutter for years and nothing will ruin this triumph, it must have been so disarmingly honest on his part, poor dumbstruck Jessamine might actually be deeply moved by whatever the fuck he says (im scared to even speculate what this would be, it’s probably so cursed we should never find out)
Hard to believe it’s been a whole year since the GF finale… Couldn’t resist to draw the ultimate heartbreaking moment of the show. What really gets me in this scene is the contrast between visual and emotional mood: the sunny, peaceful landscape makes the sorrow of the Pines family even more tangible.
One of the most painful parts of losing you was that it didn’t matter how much we knew and loved each other, how much time we spent talking, it only took a fraction of the time to become strangers again–for the sound of your voice, the sparkle in your eyes, the warmth you gave me, the moments we shared, to become a distant memory.
“ for summer, we learn the ferryman’s yawn. let’s being our practice. imagine it’s early afternoon, by the pine on the bank of the sumida river. one customer in the belly of the boat, one ferryman at the stern, lazily smoking a cigarette. ‘hey, ferryman. take the boat upriver. i like the boat, but being on it all day gets so boring, so boring… no good at all…’ ”
We’re setting up to do this shot, we just wanna see Cate sort of tugging this child along. He’s forgetting how to walk. And she walked off down the sidewalk and they kind of edged over to the edge of frame and disappeared behind the tree and then right at this moment the little boy tugs on her hand and then she bends down to find out what it is that he wants and he puckers up his lips and gives her this kiss. And I’m watching this on the monitor and I’m going “Oh my god, that’s amazing!”

LOOK AT THE PHOTO MORE CLOSELY...They are naked?! Um Hiro, are you saying this whole time Gajeel and Levy have been doing naughty things?? Also RBOZ is doing a mini comic/comic for the picture!!!!
dude you have no idea how long I’ve been staring at that piece of perfection, they are naked as fuck, they have no clothes, Gajeel is really up in her personal space like really up in her personal space and Levy looks like she is about to have the time of her life with her man’s dick in her.
look at how happy they are being in each other’s presence with nothing but skin and air between them.
I put this on twitter but for fun’s sake lemme put it here too
Beautiful bitch’s titty is out
I do not doubt for a second that they’ve been having intimate fucking for a while now. Taking away the fact that they consensually spent a year together, a year that we don’t know exactly what happened other than the fact that they were in the council and their feelings for each other obviously grew, Mashima’s a troll and has left clues to dot together:
the first clue was this fucking blanket scandal controversy I wasn’t in the fandom when this chapter came out but i did my research and went through fairy tail confess for help as well so i know what shit went down with Gajeel being shirtless and Levy in her tank top pajama, they were the only ones in bed
lemme just bring up the fact that if Levy was asleep and barely waking up in fairy hills, you know the only known residence of hers, then when Irene’s shit wore off, and people assumingely ended up at the place they were when the war began, wouldn’t she have been near Erza and Wendy? She wasn’t she was right next to Gajeel and Lily.
second, this dirty ass innuendo, where we see Gajeel’s sparkling eyes for Levy for the first time
that position with his arm looks familiar If he meant that with no kind of double entendre we would’ve known from Levy’s expression and Im sure she would’ve been pissed and pulled her “Gajeel’s being a stupid fuck” face aka my favorite levy face but
she’s cool with it, like “okay he’s going to throw me in jail alright it’s cool, this is normal, code for he’s going to fuck me”
third, the one spoken at the most heartbreaking moment
gonna say this with a little bit of sex ed. Ok so Gajeel wants kids with Levy, kids, two children, twins, offspring, the common product of unprotected sex. In order for Gajeel to want a family with Levy he has to want to fuck her. Let me repeat, he needs to have sex with Levy in order to get the kids he wants. More vulgarly, Gajeel needs to put his dick inside of Levy’s pussy in order for Levy to get pregnant, something that Gajeel wants. Again, Gajeel needs to stick his penis inside of Levy’s vagina, make friction and have that penis ejaculate sperm which will then swim up Levy’s uterus and fight to be the first one inside of Levy’s egg which has to be attached to Levy’s fallopian tube, waiting to be fertilized i got a B in human biology i forgot if this is how it happens but google is free so feel free to correct me, Im just going by memory rn. idk if the twins are supposed to be identical or fraternal but either way for fraternal, two eggs have to be fertilized by two sperm and for identical, one sperm penetrates one egg which will then split as the pregnancy progresses.Ok and this is based on my own view point, people can have a different viewpoint on this but for me I would have to be in an intimate relationship with someone before i think about having kids with them, idk if either Gajeel or Levy are the same way but that’s just me.
this is the one that convinced me that they’ve had sex before and that Levy likes being on top
their reunion was eye opening to me, it surprised me just how comfortable they were in this position as if they’ve done a million times before, there was no embarrassed blushes and constant apologizing for invading personal space, Levy wanted to be in Gajeel’s personal space and vice versa,
their reaction and actions after this just proved how normal this was to them
as if they weren’t just in a position where Levy looked like she was riding him, they’re not mortified, they’re not embarrassed that there was people around who saw their reunion and intimate position.
i got no idea where the hot springs pictures go here to be honest, i don’t think they were necessary and i get it wasn’t Gajeel’s fault stupid ichiya but it was still uncomfortable for both of them I bet, they weren’t able to enjoy it because they didn’t want to be in that position at that time, it was not consensual on both parts, again i saw stupid ichiya but yeah other than that i dont know
I hope hope that Mashima gives us more in regards to them and their relationship status and how long they’ve been together but we just have to wait and see.
oh dude and you don’t even know how hyped i am about Rusky doing some art for this and I am looking forward to any fanfic or art based on that very picture because it is perfection and should be in the Louvre, Mona Lisa who??
added bonuses just to show that Levy loves Gajeel’s titties Gajeel knows this too as alluded in the “a future” panel where Levy has her hand on his upper titty:
^^this one just made me realize that they’ve lain together like that.
and Im sorry this post got so long I got carried away with this but I have a lot of feels about these two people being naked together
basically, i’ve read a lot of fic, some of which i haven’t seen on rec lists on tumblr anywhere and i just thought that had to be remedied so: here we go. ten fics sorted by word count. most of them are multichapter, and rated M or E.
Adam Parrish works as a sober companion, but he has no idea of the storm that’s soon to hit him when Ronan Lynch turns out to be his newest client. (Or the one where Adam Parrish and Ronan Lynch are trapped underneath the same roof for six weeks.)*Ronan, to his surprise, opened his eyes. For a breathless moment, Adam was transfixed in them. They were the color of the ocean on the most azure of nights, lightning right before it struck the ground, damp hydrangeas on a fog-swept morning. Those eyes gave him chills.
this fic!! solidly one of my favorite fics! (although, i’m only recommending my favorites) ronan is a little more of an asshole than usual, but, it’s an AU so.. it works. the writing in this is lovely and poetic and leaves you hanging off of every word.
It’s rather astonishing how fragile the human heart is.
How easily it is shook into the depths of despair.
How a single unanswered message, can cause a spiral of emotions.
How the ‘read’ feature on social media can cloud one’s better judgment.
How completely ruining your first car can devastate you beyond repair.
How such mundane phenomena can cause an individual to lose faith in everything they know to be fundamentally true.
It is also rather astonishing how resilient a human heart can be.
How a simple afternoon out, with someone you care about, can make the world feel like it’s in full bloom, even in the depths of winter.
How coffee on a sunny Wednesday afternoon, as the sun dips just below the horizon, and the wind brushes against your skin, can make you feel alive again.
How being surrounded by the people you care most about in the world, watching flickering images of some movie no one is paying attention to on a run down old television at four in the morning, can make you grateful to be alive.
It’s true that some moments have the power to destroy you.
But it’s also just as true that these very moments, will make you stronger.
