is anyone pointing out that Damien and Mary are not just close friends, but almost certainly siblings? Look at them
same eye colour (without Damiens contacts), same skin tone, basically same eyebrows, very similar nose and face shape. Either or both of their hair could easily be dyed (EDIT: It is confirmed Mary dyes her hair in the Robert route). Mary calls him her special boy and says she has a vested interest in his wellbeing! She’s his sister for sure, possibly even his twin?
“Did your parents bicker?” she asked. “The adoptive ones, I mean.”
A slow smile broke on Ashla [Ahsoka]’s face, curling first one side of her mouth and then the other. Whatever she was remembering, Kaeden could tell it was good.
“All the time,” Ashla said, almost as if she were talking to herself.
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for the wonderful and encouraging words
in response to the first chapter! Honestly, the amount of messages and
tag screaming I received made me so happy. I cannot express how much I
appreciated every single comment. I can only hope that I do the story
and you guys justice. :) I forgot to mention last time that I’ll be updating this every Tuesday and Friday well into sweater weather season. And also we don’t meet Killian for a little while yet, whoops, did, please don’t kill me.
Summary: Bouncing around with her son for the majority of her life, Emma
Swan has told herself she’s happy in the city. It’s where the most
camera operating jobs are, and that’s how she makes her money. But when
an old friend calls her and asks for her help on a new project in small
town Maine, Emma finds herself in a place she’s never been with people she
doesn’t know filming a profession she knows nothing about. But when the
captain of the ship she’s filming begins taking a keen interest in her
and her life, she finds herself wondering whether she might just catch
something other than fish. Deadliest Catch AU
Rating: T Content warning: Character death, some violent situations
With the weekend behind them, Emma at least has work to keep her mind off of the impending future: Jefferson’s offer, David’s advice, the possibility of moving. This series she’s working on, it’s alright. The cast is sweet – especially Anna, who’s too bubbly for her own good and exactly what casting was looking for in their main character. But it’s minimal work for her. They’re filming on a fucking camcorder approximately four years past ancient.
But it’s a gig. For such a shitty set up, it’s not all that shitty. The pay is good, the food is better, and she gets the weekends off to hang out with her son.
Her traitorous mind thinks of the possibilities. Maybe it would be good to sort of…settle. Good for Henry – he could make better friends if they have to stay in town for a set amount of months instead of moving wherever they’re filming. He could focus better in school, maybe join a sports team.
And her. It could be good for her. She knows Mary Margaret and David and Jefferson, so she wouldn’t have to worry about making friends or having people to watch Henry if something urgent comes up. She’d have a job already set up that has the potential to go on for years. And it’d be an adventure: she’s never so much as been on a boat, let alone know how it works.
“Doesn’t seem like a good idea, actually,” she mumbles to herself as she fixes the camera minutely, trying to adjust for Anna’s subtle shift in positioning.
“What was that?” the director asks her. “Is something wrong?”
“Nope,” Emma quickly answers, standing up and backing away. “Everything’s fine, just talking to myself.”
I know LL is infamous for never showing male characters but it’s so endearing to have context for the characters’ lives outside of just being idols, especially when it’s about their parents. Like, Honoka’s dad is one of her biggest supporters, it’s so cute to imagine her coming home to the dinner table and telling everyone about their newest song and how they definitely need a second Mermaid Festa, showing up to practice before the Love Live finals with a box of manju because her dad wanted to encourage them in the best way he knew how, running off stage after the concert’s over and seeing her family there and giving them a huge hug. It adds an extra layer of depth when you think about how these characters are someone’s daughters, someone’s sisters, or someone’s classmates.
I mean, Nico’s best episode is the one about her family, and a lot of Maki’s character arc is about her parents’ intentions. According to some real-print-school-idol-diary, Hanayo’s mom was an idol - imagine Hanayo coming home after joining the club and telling her mom about it and her mom is just so thrilled, she wants to hear all the new songs and they talk about choreography and watch other groups’ performances and her mom says that µ’s is definitely better. Kotori and Maki knew each other as kids because Kotori got knee surgery at Maki’s family’s hospital, imagine how that could’ve effected their friendship as kids? They could’ve been childhood friends. Anyway, Honoka and Umi and Kotori really were childhood friends, I bet they had triple-family parties and went out to dinner together and the kids sat at the end of the table waiting for their parents to stop talking so they could go home and have a sleepover.
Sophie doesn’t seem to be so focused on “being a dragon” like Kana is. She just wants to swing swords and be a great knight like her dad. Sienna just helps her along with her training and smothering her with encouragement. c:
