his hair though!

anonymous asked:

Hi Oro mun! Do you have any headcanons about Oro's mom and dad? I was curious about your take since there isn't any information on them. And how you think they looked appearance wise? Thanks so much! (from a fan of your portrayal)

I do indeed Nonnie! I have always been so disappointed that Kishi gave us zero information about his parents. But I have thought about them quite a lot and come up with my own headcanons. And instead of describing their appearances (in my head), I opted to do quick little sketches. Hope that clears it up!

Kumiko (name meaning Eternally Beautiful Child, though ‘mi’ is also related to the sign of the snake, or year of the snake in Chinese zodiac). His mother is who Orochimaru inherited most of his physical traits from. Though his hair colour resembles that of his dad, his mother had a very pale complexion (admittedly less pale than Oro who is porcelain white), her eyes are more of a greenish/brownish with a yellow/olive tint. She is also slender in build, to which Oro likely received her more lean stature.

She held a temper, though she would never show such a thing, instead always rather rigid to the rules and stoic. Her go to attitude is quick witted and rather stubborn, she is always polite, but does not surrender her point easily. She is in her own way slightly haughty, however around children she is instantly warmer and friendlier, falling to her natural instinct of maternal care. She (much like Oro’s dad) were firm believers of the Will of Fire, and devoted themselves wholly to Konoha and the Hokage. She reached the rank of Jounin, and had always been a skilled, if not basic shinobi with little talent to be noticed as anything other than a regular ninja.

Kumiko was never interested in becoming a teacher, instead she focused on missions outside of Konoha, feeling it was more to her taste. She is fiercely independent, but has always been very pro the idea of team work, and values her allies greatly. There is no proof of her or her husband falling a part of any clan, but Oro’s appearance does raise the question whether somewhere along their genetic line, there was some implication of a clan and particular physical traits. If either of his parents were distant relatives of a clan (likely aligned with serpents), it would have come from his mothers side. Though that was evidently far back in her family tree, and likely all but erased by now.

She died, in the same battle as her husband, serving Konoha during a war between rivalling nations. The crescent shaped earrings Oro wears were hers, one of the few things to be kept after he was declared an orphan. Since Oro does tend to hoard things (he kept his own rotting limb guys), he has managed to keep them ever since.

Eichi (name meaning “Stars” or “Bright Stars”, usually paired with the name Mitsuki “Full Moon”). Although his appearance is very serious, he is the friendlier and more welcoming of the two. He is by no means a push over, and he is not overly sociable or welcoming, but more over he is very calm and good natured. Orochimaru inherited his ebony hair from his father, though little else is really gained from his side after that.

Eichi is the more compassionate of the two, but has a terrible habit of holding a grudge. If you are on his good side you are on his good side, and it’s hard to cross over in to territory where he is hostile towards someone. However once a person has pushed him in to any form of hostility, gaining his approval once more is near impossible. Since he was raised as one of Konoha’s shinobi during a time of warfare, he is rather firm when it comes to anything related to battle, however he is very patient, and he was requested to teach a genin team, which he refused, instead desiring to work alongside his wife on missions away from home. Orochimaru has nothing physical to remember his father by, unlike with his mothers earrings, but he did find some remembrance in relating his fathers name to his sons.

Orochimaru’s father died in the same fateful battle as his mother, and both failed to return home to their son as promised. Sadly, their bodies were never recovered, and their graves remain empty. This was what halted Orochimaru from using Edo Tensei, as direct DNA is required to use alongside a sacrifice for resurrection.

Thanks so much for asking, and I’m so glad you like my portrayal!! Hope this helped! Have a pleasant week~

Pre-ruffle, mid-ruffle, and post-ruffle Tenth Doctor Hair

David Tennant from the podcast commentary for Tooth and Claw (from the hair-messing-up scene above):

“I love the way Euros [Lyn, director] uses all these shots here to show the ideas all colliding at once

…and I love messing with my hair in moments like this, because it gives Steve, who does my make-up, a nightmare in continuity terms.

I like to keep him on his toes.”

The Eternal Obsession Continues

Kylo Ren: [walking into his quarters, startled] Oh! [clutches his chest] Force, I forgot you guys were here. Oh. [swallowing] You’re…a ginger. 
Obi-Wan’s Force Ghost
: [reading a book] Pardon? 
Kylo: You…I meant, normally when I see you you look like an old man, but today you’re…
Obi-Wan: [looking up] Oh, yes. Well I am a ghost, you know. I can look however I want, really. I suppose I did have a bit of a reddish quality to my hair in my younger years, now that you mention it. [runs his hand through it] 
Kylo: [slightly discombobulated] …I see. Where’s Grandfather?
Obi-Wan: [goes back to reading] He’s still sleeping. He was up very late last night. 
Kylo: [eyes widen] Oh. [clears throat] Look, since it’s just the two of us, Kenobi, I thought I’d get a couple of things clear between us. 
Obi-Wan: [mildly amused] Very well. 
Kylo: I’m not coming back to the light side, OK? And I’ll have no more of you trying to…manipulate me into doing what you want me to do. No more mind games. No tricks. 
Obi-Wan: Of course not. I wouldn’t dream of it. 
Kylo: These are my quarters, and so we play by my rules. 
Obi-Wan: Certainly.  
Kylo: [standing up straighter] Frankly I never even understood why my whole family seemed to be so preoccupied with you. I mean, now that I’ve finally met you and you’re just some…Jedi. 
Obi-Wan: I agree. I am just a simple man. It is rather silly, isn’t it? [returns to his book]
Kylo: [staring at him, subconsciously fixing his own hair] …and really, you know, why would I even want your approval? Or your attention? [scoffs as Obi-Wan continues to largely ignore him] You know – you know what I did today, Kenobi? Hmm?
Obi-Wan: What’s that, Kylo?
Kylo: [defiantly] I left a sacrifice at the tomb of Darth Bane. And I went to a meeting to talk about the new superweapon we’re building. That’s right – we’re making another one.
Obi-Wan: [sincerely] Oh, well, let us hope the fourth time’s the charm, then. [goes back to reading again]
[Kylo watches him in silence, and starts to walk away before walking back over to Obi-Wan] 
Kylo: …and anyways, Kenobi, like, if you were going to try and make me do something for you, what would it even be? [laughs unconvincingly] You know, it’s not like I’d listen to you. 
Obi-Wan: Yes, I know better than to try and ask you to do something for me. I won’t even bother you for a cup of tea. Though that would be lovely. But I know you don’t care what I think. 
Kylo: That’s right, Jedi. [glances up at Obi-Wan’s hair again] Anyways. I’m going to go take care of a few things.  
Obi-Wan: [nods] Certainly. I won’t get in your way.

[Kylo leaves. Obi-Wan smirks to himself as he hears a tea kettle in the kitchen.]
