He came to you like a breath of fresh air, cleansing your body and bringing life to your bones. He was the type of art that only existed on grainy canvases of white, beautiful colors blending together to form a perfection to your eyes. He was the smell of fresh rain on a summers afternoon, peculiar and satisfying mixed into nothing other than complete and utter fondness on your part.

He was your other half.

He just didn’t know it.

Hello dear, I gotta admit that to me, Mick's story felt like a rushed version of a concept they already used for Castiel. This whole thing about coldly following orders, being a 'friendly antagonist', then he starts growing close to the Winchesters, starts doubting what's right and chooses free will over obedience. He even got that Bmol chick to reinforce his training, which reminded me a lot of Naomi. I would love to hear your opinion on this :)

Hey sweetie, I’m afraid I’m going to be annoying again, because yes, I do think that’s how his character was conceived and I agree with people who see Mick as a Cas mirror, but at the same time I’m uncomfortable with it.

To me, Dean’s heart and Dean’s soul were the fundamental part of Cas’ rebellion. His entire arc is a love story. Sure, Cas did rebel before, because he ‘came off the line with a crack in his chassis’ or something, and therefore he sometimes had doubts, and wondered about right and wrong, but we also know those things didn’t last. Cas was (brutally) reprogrammed, and then sent back out in the field. In fact, his superiors’ trust in his capacity to obey orders was such he was even sent on a very important mission: he was the one who rescued Dean from Hell and kept a close watch on the Righteous Man - something that never really made sense to me (did Michael consider himself too important to take a personal interest in Dean? and, in any case, why pick an angel who had caused so much trouble for such a crucial task? was Heaven following some kind of prophecy? or was Cas really their best soldier, despite the fact that at the time they had not one, but two functioning archangels up there?). So, you see, while it wasn’t Dean, exactly, who changed Cas - since, as I said, Cas had rebelled before and he was nurturing a kind of free will withing himself long before meeting Dean - it was Dean who allowed Cas to take that final step and finally break free of his corrupted and blind commanders. As we saw most clearly in the infamous crypt scene, but also in countless other moments, both textual and subtextual, it was touching Dean’s soul that truly made Cas into what he is today. It was Cas’ love for Dean which made everything possible, and it was perhaps Dean’s complicated feelings for Cas (or whatever happened between them in Hell) that made it so that Cas couldn’t be reprogrammed any longer.

Mick’s story doesn’t have any of this. The whole way the BMoL was conceived of is a bit wonky and out of balance, but Mick is particularly wonky and out of balance himself.

“Welcome to the Ellen show! Thank you for coming!” She spoke, guiding you to the white chair. Her contagious smile, made your cheeks hurt.

The boys welcomed you back with much less issue than you had expected. It made you a little sad that they had been lied to so many times in their lives that it had become so normal.

“So, you guys kiss and make up then?” Dean asked with a silly grin.

You cocked your eyebrow at him. “Nah man, Feathers and I aren’t really the kiss and make up types. We’re more the hate-fuck and make up types.”

It was the end of the world. The dead walked among us and the only people you had left were your two brothers. Being a Winchester, you grew up into the hunting life killing all things evil while saving innocent people. Your father taught you and your brothers the life after your mother was killed by a demon. So, you’d think that the apocalypse wasn’t anything new for the three Winchesters, but it was. Yes, they had stopped the first one, but this one was much different. One day, all the angels fell from heaven, losing their grace and becoming human. The demons were free to pillage the earth and make it their own. They thought it would be fun to make a virus that would wipe out not only the human race, but also any evil creature that walked among us. The thing they weren’t expecting was the fact that the virus was so strong that it was affecting the demons as well. Demons inevitably became sick as well and withered away. Then they’d come back just like the others did as corpses hungry for human flesh.

I found God but it wasn’t supposed to be (malec ff)

Based on this prompt by @writing-prompt-s
Autocorrect changed your sentence from “I’m good” to “I’m God” an angel appears and says “There you are!”

Pairing: Malec
Rating: T

Words: ~4500

Summary: AU - After closing a particularly spectacular legal case Magnus sends Ragnor a celebratory text only to find himself the victim of autocorrect and having to explain to a very handsome angel (Alec) that he isn’t God, no matter how much he wishes he was right now.

Beta’d by the wonderful @ladymatt



“It remains our primary mission, above all else, to locate God. Remember, this incarnation may take any human form - irrespective of race, age, and gender.”

“Why are they so sure God’s back? There have been no confirmed reports of sightings, let alone actual meetings with God in centuries,” Izzy whispered to Alec as they sat through yet another briefing from the Archangel.

“She’s got a point,” Jace added from Alec’s other side, “seems like they’re just trying to keep us busy. We’re not allowed to smite people anymore but they know everyone’s itching to slip and make a “terrible mistake” on that sociopath who was sworn in a few weeks ago.”

Alec sighed, they’d been having the same damn discussion for weeks now and, privately, he agreed that the search wasn’t a good use of their time. They had much better things to do. They had demons to fight, the occasional miracle to deliver, not to mention endless prayers to listen to and all the people of New York to watch over. But, seeing as the last time the angels stopped searching for God and began delivering ‘justice’ according to their own beliefs had resulted in genocide and a world war, Alec was adamant that such an uprising would never occur on his watch.

“Humans are thanking God at rates that we’ve never seen before,” Alec said resignedly, “Raziel’s laws might be hard but they are the law. If God’s out there, we’ll find them.”

“Lighten up, Alec -“ Jace began, only to be interrupted by the Archangel who was glaring right at them now.

“You each have your duties. Remember, summons may call you to respond immediately if a lead on God’s location is identified,” she said, “so I suggest you get started. The devil and all his demons are only going to get more active as more and more humans allow themselves to succumb to greed and ignorance.”  

———

[From Ragnor 18:45 Even for you, getting John Thorn to admit to being the only one to have ever fired his custom revolver and thus, admitting to murder at his own trial, was a coup.]

Magnus smirked as he read Ragnor’s message, surprised that his friend was even still awake let alone following his court case, given it was almost midnight in London. Even if taking down the head of a new White Supremacy group for murder had hit the international press hard when the trial had wrapped up so spectacularly this evening. Pausing just long enough to set down his black martini, Magnus quickly typed out a reply which he knew would likely rile Ragnor further. They had a competition each year to see who could prosecute the biggest criminal and this victory pretty much sealed the deal in Magnus’ favour, for the third year in a row. It wasn’t his fault he really was that good. But as he hit send he saw a bubble pop up above his final word and knew he was about to be the victim of autocorrect. Resigned to his fate, Magnus took a sip of his drink before looking back at his phone to see what the damage was:

[From Magnus 18:46 What can I say, unlike other mere mortals, I’m God.]

Nearly choking on his martini with laughter as he saw that for once autocorrect had actually improved his message, changing ‘I’m Good’ to ‘I’m God’. That really would incite Ragnor. But before he had a chance to properly indulge in thinking about Ragnor’s ire, a man appeared before him in a sudden glow of almost blinding light. As the light receded Magnus saw that it was not an ordinary man, but one that looked like some kind of avenging angel. His black, military-style clothes and tall, warrior’s body were paired with glorious snow white wings that looked like they’d been dipped in liquid emerald, the last row of feathers were a green so deep and dark they were almost black. Even though his expression was serious, Magnus could have sworn he saw a flare of interest in those hazel eyes that went so well with his wings.   

“There you are! God, we’ve been looking for you everywhere!” the angel said as though he’d been searching for Magnus forever, even though that didn’t make any sense.

“Were you looking for me?” Magnus asked intrigued, as he got up and walked toward the angel, deciding he may as well get a good look at him from up close before whatever kind of illusion this was shattered and he lost the chance, “I don’t believe we’ve been formally introduced, I’m Magnus,”

“Alec,” the Angel replied, a shy smile transforming his face as if he’s just as captivated by Magnus as Magnus was by him.

summary:  “two people meet on a street corner in new york city” – a prompt from a friend

note: what is this? i don’t know. needed to write something to get back into the swing of things ;-;

edit: here’s a companion piece with joshua – sacrament

You had lived in the city for a year now, and you still weren’t used to how the millions of people crowded on such a small island off the East Coast could walk about as if they were the only ones who mattered. 

It wasn’t that you hated city folk – in fact, many of the people who you stopped for directions when you first moved here were even happy to escort you to your destination. You figured that New Yorkers weren’t inherently rude or mean; unlike the stereotypes, you found them to be a rather passive bunch. They would pretend to be asleep or absorbed in their phones when a panhandler recited sob stories on the subway, or hurry past loud arguments spotlighted by neon signs in front of packed bars. New Yorkers had to be asked directly for them to act, and growing up in a small town in the South, it was a far cry from the etiquette that you were used to.

anonymous asked:

When people say they want Mabel to have character development, we don't mean that she just glitters and sweaters, we just mean that it feels and seems like she doesn't have any character flaws, which is what generally makes a character more humane.

You know, I was about to go to bed but then this came up and I just had to step in and do some educating.

Mabel is a very flawed character. It is the characterization of the fandom that dehumanizes her.

Mabel is a very selfish person. She often puts what she wants in front of the needs and feelings of others. In fact, her mind can be so one-tracked at times that she often lashes out at other characters in response to not getting what she wants. 

In The Time Traveler’s Pig, she fights Dipper for Blendin’s time machine because she placed having Waddles over making her brother happy.

In Fight Fighters, we see Mabel subject Stan to his greatest fear because she wanted to be the hero. She placed her want to be someone’e helper over the actual person’s wishes.

In Not What He Seems, she betrays Dipper’s trust because she wanted Stan to be the good guy. She had more than enough proof that her Grunkle had been lying and cheating, but through out the last act of the episode she was caught in denial. And, when the fate of the world rested on her decision, she rather selfishly chose to believe Stan’s story because she did not want to believe in the alternative. 

Of course, there are more episodes in which this obviously happens (more than I feel awake enough to list) but my point is this: Mabel may have good intentions at times, but she has difficulty seeing beyond her own realm. She immediately presumes that she is always in the right no matter what she does. This issue is so rampant that she is can only tackle it little by little. For example, in Love God she learns not to meddle in other people’s relationships. That aspect of her selfishness has been solved, but it’s sure to re-arise in other forms in later episodes (see: Northwest Mansion Mystery).

On top of all that, she is very aggressive. We always talk about how Dipper is willing to sit on the sidelines and let bad things happen, but Mabel will make bad things happen to other people. She kicks decorations out of spite during Gideon Rises, she wrestles Dipper whenever she’s angry at him. She’s not a passive member of the team. Once she sees a physical issue, she’s the first person to lash out.

In many ways, her combined selfishness and aggressiveness makes her very similar to Gideon. The only difference I see between the two is that she has a moral compass that he lacks. Without her compassion for others, she would be as possessive and violent as Gideon. 

So the question remains: why do you, fair anon, believe that she is a character without flaws?

The answer: mischaracterization.

This is a very Dipper-centric fandom. Every work of fiction you see sprout from the fans of Gravity Falls typically utilize Mabel as Dipper’s soundboard. So many people are so intent on making Dipper the cool and dark anti-hero that they have to contrast him with an overly sweet Mabel Pines. They reduce her to match-maker or perfect angel because they are not willing to balance her optimism and compassion with her aggression and selfishness. 

When I placed that twitter screen shot on the post advertising my fanfiction, I meant to draw attention to this issue. I want people to know that I understand what Alex Hirsch meant when he said that she is more than just sweaters and glitter. And, instead of absently sitting on the sidelines and nodding my head, I am shouting demands for better characterizations of Mabel. It’s unfair to the fans and Alex Hirsch to have such an excellent character be used as Dipper’s prop in every AU and fanfiction ever invented. 

I intend to do my part to change things.

I hope that  once things do, you can see that.

River Phoenix, NATURE BOY by Dan Yakir (Sky Magazine, 1989)

On location in Tacoma, Washington, where he’s filming I Love You To Death with William Hurt, Kevin Kline and, oddly, Tracey Ullman. River Phoenix, at 18, is the perfect, quiet professional. An Oscar nomination for Running On Empty, in which he, coincidentally, plays the son of 60’s radicals, hasn’t made him any more impressed by Hollywood. In fact, he lives on the opposite side of the continent in Florida.

The veteran of The Mosquito Coast, in which he played Harrison Ford’s alternately confused and supportive son, and of the coming of age stories, Stand By Me and Jimmy Reardon. Phoenix was born by natural childbirth in Oregon and named after the river of life in Herman Hesse’s Siddartha. His parents were then missionaries for an organization called The Children of God and befitting the hippie legacy that inspired his upbringing (and that of his brother Leaf, and sisters Rainbow, Liberty and Summer), he is a vegetarian, an incurable romantic and something of an idealist.


You grew up under rather unique circumstances. Do you feel different, enclosed in your own little universe?
[Chuckles] “That’s something I’m afraid of. I don’t want to separate myself from the rest of the world. If the world’s not doing too good, I’m a part of it - I’ll be happy to take the blame. I’m along for the ride. But yeah. I feel different in a lot of ways because my beliefs aren’t very typical. In fact a lot of people I talk to disagree with me.”

What do they disagree about?
“About the nuclear arms race, prejudice in South Africa. A lot of people I hang out with agree, but it’s obviously not of universal appeal; otherwise things would change. But I don’t think things can change overnight; a slow evolution has to take place. One of my beliefs is about harmlessness to animals. I don’t believe in eating meat or using any animal by-products or contributing to suppressing animals - or people either”. 

“One thing I’d like to do when I have the money is to buy thousands of acres of Brazilian rainforest and make a national park, so no one can bulldoze it an put up a McDonald’s. I guess people find security in a Big Mac, but that’s our oxygen! In fact, McDonald’s claim they don’t use cattle reared on cleared rainforest land. And it’s a chicken shit approach - the mass slaughtering of animals.”

You sound like an idealist, but we’re living in a materialistic world.
“Yeah, I try to stay away from that. I don’t feel that I am attached to material things, though I have all the comforts that a lot of people don’t have. I have the modern conveniences of a blender, a toilet, a shower. A lot of people have to do their thing in the gutter.”

But you have much more than that at this point!
“At this point, yes I have an automobile, a nice guitar - actually, a few of them, but they are not really extravagant. But, you know, up to three years ago, we, this family, were worried about paying the rent. It was after Jimmy Reardon that we first had financial stability. That’s when we bought a car that wasn’t old or used. One of our biggest dreams is to own a ranch, to have a base camp, where the kids can grow up in a nice setting. But right now we don’t really have enough money to buy the place we want.

I’m not into the whole clothes thing: I live pretty simply. I feel there are different stages in one’s life, and I might at one point decide to devote myself to a more spiritual road, giving up all material possessions … Just moving out to the jungle some place and living like an ape man for a while. That’s something that fascinates me.”

You’ve done that, haven’t you?
“Not really, not out of choice. And it was more like a desperate situation. My parents did that, though. They dropped out in the late 60’s and lived by faith throughout the 70’s.”

How difficult was that period for you? Did you feel resigned to being there with them or did you rebel?
“No, no, no, we were always really tight and together in the beginning, you’re just born into that reality and you accept it. I’m very thankful for my early childhood and growing up in the situation that I did in South America living around people who were really humble with a lifestyle that called for a lot of faith, without money. You couldn’t be an asshole in that situation. You had to work with the people to survive. I learned a lot being very young, and I hope I don’t lose that. Obviously I’ve lost a lot of my innocence. I was very naive when I first came to the States, and when I first came to Hollywood. But I guess I could look back years from now and see myself as very naive. It’s all relative.”

It’s a strange coincidence that in your new movie, Running On Empty, you play a kid who has a deep conflict of interest with his parents. In Little Nikita, too, there’s an almost unbridgeable gap between your character and his parents.
“Yeah, a victim. That’s something I want to get away from. But the two movies are really different. Running On Empty is about ex-radicals who blew up a napalm lab during the Vietnam War, and since then they’ve been running from the law, not for selfish reasons, but because of the kids - they wanted to raise us themselves, not to have us grow up in foster homes or in an institution. The thing is that we’ve had to live completely underground, moving often, using different names - always having to lie, in order to live a whole life, they have to lie for Danny, my character, and he has to lie to himself, suppressing his true feelings.”

Pastorwitch’s FAQ

This page is to explain my spiritual path. I am a Christian witch. I study God’s world in order to advance His Kingdom.

1. Doesn’t the Bible forbid witchcraft?

Please read this post by phoenyxangel.

2. What does witchcraft mean to you?

Witchcraft is my cross:

God has been a wonderful parent to me. At times He is nurturing. At times He comes to me with tough love. When He allowed demonic presences to enter my spaces in tangible ways, I was so scared. I had always been taught that God is a nurturer who would never let anything happen to His children. He seemed like a bad parent to me for the first time in my life. But He made it clear to me, that He did not step up because I am fully capable of doing it without Him, and that I knew what path I should pursue to protect myself and others. Anyone else, He would have babied. But not me.

Witchcraft is my freedom of thought. It is my license to interpret and act upon God’s word. It is my fearlessness– fearlessness in that I do not fear being wrong in this journey. The only wrong in a spiritual journey is to stop where you are. Don’t let people judge you for “going back” in your spiritual journey, because you can’t! Once you have spiritual knowledge it does not leave you. Once you have attained Gnosis there is no turning back. The way behind is blocked. The only way to go is forward. Just because it doesn’t look like it’s going the right way does not mean the path is wrong. Keep going! Or you could stop… Don’t stop.

Witchcraft is the answer to my heart’s desire to protect the ones I love. It gives me an avenue to intercede from the power God has vested in me. I can intercede with the power of God’s creation. I can call into the depths of the Earth or cry to the end of the stars for His mercy on behalf of those I love.

Witchcraft is my link to God’s natural world. Witchcraft is my research of how God has invested Himself in His creation. Correspondences to me are simply the power God has given the earth. I understand them by dialoguing with the spiritual energy vested in them. Witchcraft is how I am a good steward of God’s kingdom.

Witchcraft is how I battle the forces beyond our “material” world. Witchcraft is how I fight alongside the angels. And though I am so weak in comparison to them, I will do whatever I can to ease their battle and push the Kingdom of Evil back. When I do a simple cleansing or warding I take back ground from the Enemy.

Witchcraft is my cross. So many people read this as a burden. A cross is not a burden. It is a symbol of our alliance to Jesus. It is a symbol of my place in the Kingdom. It is my honor and my joy. For me, witchcraft cannot be separated from my religion. It is the embodiment of my understanding of God.

3. What do you mean when you say you use witchcraft to study God’s world?

I am a green witch. That means I use creation, particularly plants, in order to perform my spells. Green witches use the energy stored within creation in order to create effects.

We know God has invested power in creation because of the story of Cain and Abel. It is the ground that seems to convict Cain for his crimes. Before Cain killed his brother, the ground gave him strength.

And the Lord said, “What have you done? Listen; your brother’s blood is crying out to me from the ground! And now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. When you till the ground, it will no longer yield to you its strength; you will be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth.”

-Gen 4:10-12

Consider also that if humans do not worship God creation must cry out to Him.

But he answered them, “I tell you that if they keep quiet, the stones will shout!”

-Luke 19:40

The power is there. Is it wrong to learn to use it? On the contrary, I find it to be an interesting way to study God. By knowing His creation, I come to know Him better.

Also note that when Jesus was confronted with magick (albeit, religious magick) he did nothing to condemn it. In the story of the healing at the pool Jesus heals a man who is waiting at a magick pool. Whenever the water was stirred it was supposed to be because an angel came and touched it. Whoever jumped into the pool first was supposed to be healed. (I’m assuming it worked, at least in part, for all of these people to be waiting so eagerly for their chance to jump in. The man in question had waited there for a long time and had missed many chances because he couldn’t move.)

Now in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate there is a pool, called in Hebrew Beth-zatha, which has five porticoes. In these lay many invalids—blind, lame, and paralyzed, waiting for the stirring of the water; for an angel of the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool, and stirred up the water; whoever stepped in first after the stirring of the water was made well from whatever disease that person had.

-John 5:2-4

If Jesus didn’t have an issue, then maybe we shouldn’t. Also note that sending demons packing is certainly not the Devil’s work as some believe. I think Christian witches need to be judicious in what they practice. I think baneful magick is iffy at best. Jesus wasn’t baneful, so neither should we be. That being said, bindings and curses do not have to be baneful.

4. Are you a natural witch?

I am not a natural witch. I was not born with an affinity for witchcraft. I am not even an empath or a psychic. As a teenager I possessed the spiritual gift of discernment, but it only felt important because the church I was at was spiritually withered. As I hit adulthood I changed to a charismatic church and I became even more of a nobody. My friends prophesied and did faith healings while I barely received words or pictures. Some of my friends even received money post-marked from God just to go on vacation. Meanwhile, I was working three jobs non-stop, trying to pay for my private university. Even though I was a dedicated member of the community, God was not blessing me with supernatural gifts like my friends had.

In fact, He seemed to be giving me the short end of the stick. Demons, overworking, mental health issues, and financial issues had me in their grasps. Of all of these trails, the demons were the hardest and most heartbreaking. I kept asking God why He wouldn’t protect me. As I looked at my friends, I wondered why He didn’t treat me like them. Why didn’t He give me supernatural gifts, especially when I was being attacked by the supernatural? Why didn’t He shower His love on me with gifts? To make matters worse, I had not received a word or picture in almost a year. I was losing what little “cool gifting” I had.

I sat in the middle of our Bible study, so upset. The methods that had worked against demons had been folk magick, something that seemed to be forbidden. Then God came to me, as He hadn’t in a long while. As I sat there and screamed inwardly, “Why won’t you protect me?! Why don’t you give me what I need?!” He clearly answered, “I already have. Only you would have the gumption to tread a path so different from those around you. You cannot be a victim of these demons.”

I am a witch by choice, because even though I am not a naturally gifted witch, God has gifted me with the strength and purpose to pursue witchcraft. I am a witch by choice because God has set witchcraft before me as my path. I am a witch by choice, and that does not make me any less or any more than my brothers and sisters who are natural born. I am a witch by choice, not by birth: any craft done through me is a direct reflection of my Father’s power, not mine. I am a witch by choice, not my choice, but God’s choice.

I don’t know if this was already translated, but I was looking through my files and found an interview with Ohtaka from 2013 and discarded djinn equip designs for the Kou brothers. They appeared in a booklet that came with the magazine:

A discarded design for Astaroth djinn equip:

Aladdin: ‘On the right is Astaroth djinn equip that appeared in the story and below is a discarded draft. The motif behind the discarded one is a combination of a dragon and a skeleton, and it looks totally cool.’

On the current Astaroth djinn equip:

‘I was lost on the djinn equip for Kouen. I thought about the upcoming developments and imagined how Alibaba, Sinbad and Kouen will look like standing next to each other. I made sure not to have their colors overlap with each other. It makes one wants to see how they’ll look like in color standing next to each other isn’t it? Maybe someday.

A discarded draft for Dantalion djinn equip:

Aladdin: ‘in the image above are two rough sketches for Koumei. Tengu was the inspiration behind them. In here he’s holding his trademark fan as well. I wanted to see it in action, and it’s a shame that they ended up discarding it.’

Leraje djinn equip

Aladdin: ‘the author likes this one as well. I’m amazed by how intricate in their design the accessories on his waist and limbs are. The motif was the grim reaper+metal.’

Were they thinking you did something to yourself or someone did it to you. You didn’t know how you were going to handle questions that were bound to be asked.

You slammed the door of the impala shut and made your way towards the door of the bunker. Sam and Cas were both ignoring your phone calls and you were imagining what you were going to walk into. Dean was dead, you were now the oldest Winchester, it was all just so messed up. You had taken the impala as soon as you got back to the bunker, you hadn’t even gone inside; opting to just walk to the garage from the outside. You needed a few minutes to think and try to figure out what you and Sam were going to do now that Dean was gone.

You walked into the bunker and were met with a sight you never expected to see; Dean was sitting at a table on his laptop, Cas was standing beside him, as was…your mom?

You all stared at eachother for a moment before Dean went into action. He stood up from his chair as you reached to grab your gun that was at your waist on your back. However your actions froze when you heard Cas say, “It’s him Y/N.”

Dean continued to look at you with a large smile on his face as you rushed towards him, barreling into him with a crushing hug. He hugged you tightly as tears began to surface in your eyes.

hiding-from-my-husband  asked:

I'm not sure if you answer questions, but in your opinion, whch male Kuro characters would be most possessive of their female lovers?

I’m more than willing to answer any kind of questions, especially the ‘what-do-you-think’ ones, so feel free to ask me anything you want ヽ(*⌒∇⌒*)ノ

I had to think for a bit about your question to give you honest reply and in the end I though that I’ll try to choose them out of all Black Butler characters, both from manga and anime. I hope it’s okay this way.

After some time of debating with myself about who should take the first place in this rating, I came to the conclusion that the most possesive male in the whole series is Ash Landers. Unfortunately, we haven’t seen any other angels in the manga (which would be more reliable source for me) so I can’t say it’s a common feature for this race, however I have no doubts that this man simply can’t handle any kind of rejection, disobeying or behavior different than he one he is expecting. What made me think this way is his obvious fanatism over his own goal. Even though his actions were actually pretty far from being pure or good, he was way too much blinded to see his own mistakes nor accept them. Ash was presented as simply being insane, enjoying the suffering of humans’ souls as if it was the highest of pleasures and yet, it still wasn’t anything personal, unlike his eventual love could be.

Ash could be this kind of partner who would try to mold his lover in a way he thinks is suitable and proper, hardly taking objections if his girlfriend wouldn’t share certain opinions with him. Maybe it wouldn’t be caused by any bad intentions, I believe that when loving he would genuinely want his partner to live the best life they deserve, even after death, however, he would probably try to do this in a wrong way. I mean, forcing anybody into the kind of living he finds appealing isn’t okay, even if he just wants it for their own good. There is a high chance that because of that, he wouldn’t want his girlfriend to meet with people who could make her ‘less pure’ and therefore he would most likely prefer to keep her for his own, forbid to do many things he doesn’t find proper and not letting her to be with those who could unintentionally grime her. The main point is also that, since he considers it hard to find a good, pure soul in those times, if he would finally get one in his hands, he simply wouldn’t let it go. Like, never. Ever.

The next ones are - unsurprisingly - demons. Sebastian and Claude are the most known and according to their actions it’s almost impossible to escape them when they once lay an eye on somebody. Like, come on, we all know this series and those supernatural fights that are caused because of Ciel’s soul and unending hunger (quoting one of somebody’s posts on this site: two guys live in a world full of sandwiches and keep fighting over this one particular sandwich because it has like an extra mayo or something). I think that out of these two, Claude Faustus is more possesive. His will to get what he wants was clearly visible in the whole second season when he was constantly chasing after that one, single soul he found delicious. It pushed him to even break the rules of his contract, kill his own master and do many other, disgusting things only to satisfy his hunger. It could be the same when it comes to his lover, when once falling for somebody, there won’t be any going back. He is unstoppable, there are no rules for him, anything that could stop him from doing whatever he wants to get his girlfriend only for himself and this is dangerous.

Sebastian Michaelis goes next. His demon nature makes him quite obviously possesive which was proven in the previous paragraph. He is a creature driven by instincts, longing for satisfaction without any morals but he seems to be creating his own rules and is rather complying to them. He is taking the contract very seriously, before seeing Claude I didn’t even know it was possible to break it, I thought that the reason why he is so obedient is that there is going to be some kind of punishment after doing so, but no, Sebastian simply wants to play this game. Not to mention his growing hunger, it was stated by William that he must be starving and yet he is not going to look for some snack in a meantime, he is consistent with his own choices and that makes him easier to be around, if I can say so. Well, we still can’t be sure that he wouldn’t snap one day, but that’s a different story. Did I just get out of the subject again?

What makes him possibly less possesive than Claude is that he is so easy to please. He loves compliments, absorbs adoration and it never fails to make him quite happy, on the contrary to the Trancy butler who isn’t buying any bullshit. When falling for somebody, it could be possible for Sebastian to agree to many things if he was asked in a certain way which his girlfriend would obviously know. Maybe I should call it that, he is not necessarily less possesive but easier to please and therefore not that strict to not let her have her own social life etc. It doesn’t change the fact that he is still one of the most domineering characters and he should never be underestimated. He may not try to kill everybody around to have his lover for himself but will most likely manipulate them to achieve his goal and will smile politely into their faces while doing so, after all.

Those are the most possesive characters in my opinion but if I could, I would add Alois Trancy, Aleister Chamber and Charles Grey to this list, too.
