i didn't even get to use half of the scenes i wanted to

anonymous asked:

You seem less driven by emotion than other bloggers and more into dealing with facts. Fact: Finn was bred to be cannon fodder. Fact: He lied to Rey and nearly got her killed. He lied to Han and did get him killed. Fact: He has not been socialized to be around people. Fact: He is not Force sensitive, Rey and Kylo Ren are. Fact: He is petulant, lazy and cowardly (he didn't care about Poe's mission, he didn't want to explain anything and he ran and left Rey on her own.) Yet he's Rey's dream man? OK

Hello, anon. I’d like to start off by thanking you for the kind words. I’m happy you seem to consider me a logical, fact-driven person. That’s what I aim for.

Now, if I may be so bold, let me ask: Did we watch the same movie? No, truly? You’re referring to Finn from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, dir. JJ Abrams, right? Because…well. Boy. Oh boy. Let’s dive in.

Fact: Finn was bred to be cannon fodder.

Incorrect. Finn was not bred to be a soldier, he was forcibly taken away from his family at a young age. By whom? The First Order. That’s right! The organization that your fav, Kylo Ren, fully supports and serves. Hmm.

Fact: He lied to Rey and nearly got her killed. He lied to Han and did get him killed.

Please let it be remembered that Finn later went back and told Rey the truth once he realized he trusted and cared for her enough. This lie didn’t even convince Han at the beginning, and the only time Finn stretched the truth at Han’s expense was to get them both on Starkiller Base (which, by the way, was out of Finn’s desire to save Rey from Kylo Ren). Rey chose to go with Finn and get BB-8 back to the Resistance. Han chose to confront Kylo out of Leia’s wish for her son to be brought home. The only reason Rey and Han were put in a position of danger was because of Kylo. Kylo kidnapped Rey and tried to torture information out of her (which would be used to murder his uncle, just by the way), and Kylo decided to murder Han himself (which, if you listen carefully to the Snoke & Kylo scenes, was never actually a direct order from the Supreme Leader). Finn didn’t get anyone killed or almost killed. These events were entirely the result of Kylo and his own shitty choices.

Fact: He has not been socialized to be around people.

Huh. He seems to connect with Rey and Han and Poe and Chewie just fine. 

Fact: He is not Force sensitive, Rey and Kylo Ren are.

Point me to the spot in the movie where the Great Force God descends from the sky and decrees, “Finn! Thou shalt not be revealed as Force-sensitive in this movie nor any other! Thy path lies not within becoming a Jedi, so therefore, as is my word, thy good friend Rey shall instead be betrothed to her darker half, Kylo Ren!” I must have taken a pee break during this scene. 

Fact: He is petulant, lazy and cowardly (he didn’t care about Poe’s mission, he didn’t want to explain anything and he ran and left Rey on her own.)

“I’m not Resistance. I’m not a hero. I’m a stormtrooper. Like all of them, I was taken from a family I’ll never know, and raised to do one thing. But my first battle, I made a choice…”

“We came back for you!” 

Also, again, where are the receipts for this fanon interpretation of petulant, manchild Finn? I’ve been genuinely confused about this claim ever since I first saw TFA. Please show them to me. 

Yet he’s Rey’s dream man? OK

You mean the bravest, most caring man in all of TFA who is genuinely concerned for Rey’s wellbeing? You bet! 

  • What she says: I'm fine.
  • What she means: It's the summer of 2001. Joe meets Patrick and he's like, "Yo. I know about music." And Patrick's like, "Yo. I know more about music." "That's impossible. D'you wanna start a band?" And Patrick's like, "... Yeah, that's cool." and then he's like, "Yo, this is a book store, it's not a music store!" And then, they met at Patrick's house. So Patrick's wearing shorts, and socks, and a hat. Patrick is playing drums for some fuckin' reason. They start playin' music together. They're like "Oh, let's play some fuckin' covers from some other bands." It was like Green Day... and fuckin' Misfits... and fuckin' Ramones... Pete said to Joe, "Yo, we gotta change this shit up." "Yo. We played all these bands, let's play shit from Fall Out Boy." And so Pete and Patrick are like "Yo, that's dope. But we need a fuckin' drummer!" Because Patrick's playin' drums and he's a singer! And Patrick's like, "Yo, I got a soul voice." And they're like, "Wait, how do you have a soul voice?" And he's like, "Yo, watch this: YEeeEeeEeeEeeEeeEeeEeeEeeEeeEeeEeeEaAAAAHHH!" And they're like, "Oh my god, that sounds like soul!" So they put it in a song, and it was like, "WHERE IS YOUR BOY TONIIIIIIIIING?!" And then they're like, "Yo, that's fuckin' perfect. This is Fall Out Boy." And they made records like Evening Out with Your Ex-Girlfriend. Evening Out with Your Ex-Girlfriend, everybody loves it... with your ex-girlfriend. It's called Evening Out With Your Ex-Girlfriend. It's called Eating Out Your Girlfriend, and it's real and it doesn't matter. And Pete talked to Patrick and Joe and he was like "Yo, what the FUUUCK! Yo. this is gonna be fuckin' dooooope!" So they made a record, and it was called Take This to Your Grave. They made it without a drummer! And they had like three, four drummers come in. The four drummers they had come in were like, Josh Freese... Neil Peart, the dude from Toto... The fourth one was like the guy from like Papa Roach or something. And they're like, "Yo, we need Andy Hurly. Andy Hurley. Take This to Your Grave. Fuckin' record it." And he did it, and he killed it, and he was like bigadigalulululululuPSSHHH! Killin' the skins! Tappin' the skins, tappin' the rim. Playin' the shit. Killin' these bitches. Wrappin' it out. (You're getting a fucking tattoo right now! What the fuck is going on?!) "We should get signed to Fueled by Ramen. 'Cause these guys know wha the fuck is goin' on." They were like, "Yo. If you can make our scene any bigger than it is, which is not fuckin' hard. We will sign you guys." he was like, "Yo! We got this record that's fuckin' dope, dude! It's called Take This to your Grave. And it's called From Under the Cork Tree, and it's gonna be fucking huge. And then Patrick's like, "I gotta keep it real, I gotta keep it artistic, these are three songs that are gonna make the album, it's called - **burp** - it's called Thanks for the Memories, Twenty Dollar Nose Bleed, and Sugar We're Goin' Down. And they made this record that was fucking dope and it fucking hit on the charts, like one, two, three! Three two one! Three four five six seven eight nine teeen! Ten to one! From Under the Cork Tree sold like four million records... ten million records.! ...fifteen million records! And Brendon Urie had nothing to do with the entire record! And Patrick is like, "That's GOooOooOooOooOooOooOd!" pete was like, "Yo, FUCK YOU! I can do whatever I want!" Joe was like, "...yeah, it's cool man, whatever. I don't give a shit." And then Andy was like, "...eh...cool." And Pete was like, "Makeup is fuckin' great for a guy. Because, it makes a guy look beautiful. Which a lotta times, a guy is not beautiful. And I wanna change that. I wanna make sure that everybody thinks that guys are beautiful." **cut to Brendon spitting for 30 seconds** (shutthefuck - oh, fuck... alright, alright.) Pete was like, "Oh my god, I'm so embarrassed about this dick pic!" And then I saw the dick pic and I was like, "Eh, it's not bad." It's not a bad dick. Let's be real. We made Rolling Stone one issue before Fall Out Boy. And Fall Out Boy made the issue right after us. They were so pissed! They were like, "Yo, fuck you guys!" They're like, "YO! Panic has the fucking cover of Rolling Stone? Yo, FUCK these dude! We're gonna go fucking miles above! We're gonna hit every fuckin' continent there is known to man!" But they didn't! Because they missed a second of time. Apparently. They were like, "Oh, shit, we got every continent!" But they didn't actually hit it. Dude, Pete was like, "what the FUCK?!" Oh, you didn't make the continent.. It's like fuck you! So, From Under the Cork Tree happens, we fuckin' have three, four years of awesomenes.s... Like, people are cumming on themselves, 'cause it's so big. **people talking in the background, Brendon spills/pours beer on himself** Alright. So Fall out Boy was like, so Patrick's like, "Yo, we're gonna name this record from uru - From Under the Cork Tree and from inity-isf - **laugh** From Infinity on High. Pete was like, "Yo. Folie a Deux means the theatric of two." Oh, sorry. I'm sorry. Fall Out Boy was like, "Yo, we gotta take a break." Meaning, Pete was like, "Yo. We gotta take a break, bruh." And Patrick's like, "I need time for my music. OOHH!" And Joe's like, "Yo. I need to find the fuckin' art, dude. I gotta find some fuckin' meau-metal." And Andy's like, "I'm just gonna play with some fuckin' metal bands." And they're like, "Alright. This break's been like three years long. Two years long. Three years long." Three and a half...? "We gotta fuckin' come back, man. We gotta come back strong." (You took my beer away! What the fuck? **someone in the back: You poured it all over yourself! You poured it on yourself, man.**) "We gotta make this shit legit, it's gonna be fuckin' dope. It's gonna go fuckin' sky high. We're gonna make a fuckin' record that sails the skies. We're gonna call this record... Save Rock and Roll." So they made Alone Together, Light 'Em Up, Alone Together, Phoenix. And everybody's like, "What the fuck? You're workin' with this guy who fuckin' recorded Avril Lavigne and Pink..." (There's p - what the fuck is on my shirt, did I puke on myself? **people in the background telling him he poured beer on himself** oh, god...) Pete was like, "Yo, we're gonna end up on a tour with Panci! At the Disco and Twenty Pilots." And that's all. That's all that matters. And that's just how the fuckin' story goes.

fuckmyfaraday  asked:

I think my ask got eaten but if it didn't sorry for sending twice. But I want to see trans Peter coming out to Yondu.

Hey friend! So I’m pretty sure you meant you wanted to see this drawn, which I will still likely do, but a scene that long would take some time so it’s possible that I wrote a quick canon AU coming out scene in the meantime. I hope it’s in the vein of what you were imagining!

Quick note: Since this is a coming out scene from the perspective of the character who is being come out to, Peter is technically misgendered up top though Yondu corrects immediately once he figures out what’s up.

When Ego had hired him to pick up yet another of his numerous offspring, Yondu had been expecting something more out of Parker Quill.

The kid was scrawny, even for a Terran. A little slip of a thing, all big eyes and soft edges, though she had a hell of a bite. Yondu had the lingering crescent moon impression of teeth where the little hellion had tried to take a chunk out of him when they’d first beamed her aboard the ship, already wet-eyed by only minimal fault of theirs and howling for her mama.

That had been several years ago, now, though Quill was still a lanky scrap, grown a few inches taller but never quite seeming to have enough meat on her bones to make up for it despite the fact that she ate like she was starving, falling on her food with a fervor that rivaled that of crewmen three times her size or more. She was a funny creature, Quill, with that big ol’ chip on her shoulder that she seemed to delight in wielding like a weapon against anybody foolish enough to try and test her mettle. She was gregarious, stumbling mostly by accident into enough charm to swing folk to her favor, and she had spunk, even if it occasionally manifested in somewhat unusual ways.

Yondu stared for a second longer at the choppy, rough-shorn mess she’d made of herself this time, little tufts of ginger hair sticking out over her ears, licking up off her head in direct defiance of the artificial gravity in place on the ship. She had her jaw set, chin poking out and shoulders thrown back, and she hadn’t said yet why she’d come storming up here in the first place but Yondu could see her working up to it, throat bobbing nervously as she swallowed, knuckles white where her hands were clenched into determined fists at her sides. She was a talker, Quill, and most of the crew had learned fast that it was better to cut her off before she could get started, guide the conversation somewhat so that she didn’t wander too far afield while on the circuitous path to her point.

“Whaddya gone and done all this for, now?” Yondu asked, arching an eyebrow and waving a hand at his own face.

Quill opened her mouth, and then closed it again, considering for a half-second before she set her shoulders back even further, reedy little chest puffing out, clearly preparing for some kind of backlash as she said sternly, “It was too long. It - ” She hesitated for a beat, pressing her mouth into a thin line and taking a breath to steel herself before adding, “It was makin’ me look like a girl.”

Yondu considered this for a moment. He wasn’t especially familiar with Terran biology, knew that it was fairly concrete, difficult and time-consuming to make alterations to unlike some of the other species on the ship who could change their appearance and molecular structure with relative ease. He’d been operating under the apparently erroneous assumption that Quill was Ego’s daughter - he thought that was the word the Terrans used, though he’d have had to double check to be certain. All of which was assuming that Yondu was correctly inferring Quill’s meaning in the first place, which was something of a crapshoot.

He canted his head and worried at his teeth for a second with the flat of his tongue while his mouth was still closed before asking, “Lookin’ like a freshly plucked Tezrak is better?”

Quill’s face flushed red, which Yondu knew enough by now to read as embarrassment.

“A boy!” Quill hissed mutinously. “I want to look like a boy.”

Ah, so that was it. Yondu couldn’t say he wasn’t surprised by the announcement, not that it was any real skin off of his back what his crew’s biological particulars were. He hadn’t known many Terrans and most of the ones he had known seemed fairly settled in their gender, though he couldn’t say for certain how they’d gotten to that point. That wasn’t to say that it couldn’t be done, of course, but it would be difficult. Much harder than say, Resslin who could shuffle through their species’ entire library of genders in the space of a thought, though not perhaps so difficult as it would be for some others. He’d have to do a little digging, maybe talk to Kraglin - Xandarians were fairly similar to humans in biological makeup and might have some know-how about how to do something like this.

For now, though, Quill had the right idea, Yondu thought. A haircut wasn’t a bad start.

He rubbed at his chin, thoughtful, and gave Quill a long, considering look before he replied, “Boy with a pisspoor haircut, maybe.”

Quill’s face went nuclear, little shoulders coming up defensively as he crossed his arms over his chest.

“It ain’t that bad!” he snapped. “I sharpened the scissors ‘fore I used ‘em and everything!”

Yondu sighed and clapped a hand to Quill’s shoulder.

“There’s your mistake, boy,” he announced loudly, stepping past Quill toward the hallway and pausing in the doorway to turn back around and look at him. “You don’t use scissors for a close cut like that. You need somethin’ steadier, make it nice an’ even.”

Quill’s hand twitched against his arm, like he wanted to reach up and tug at one of his choppy-edged little tufts, brow furrowed and gaze suspicious.

“You called me boy.”

Yondu stared at him. “You just said you was one, didn’t you?”

Quill shifted his weight nervously.

“Well, yeah.”

“So?” Yondu pressed. “Is you or ain’t you?”

“I am,” Quill said, immediate and sure.

“So what’s the trouble then? You got somethin’ else you’d rather be called?”

“No, I - ” Quill started, and then hesitated, ducking his gaze to the floor. “Peter.”

“Peter?” Yondu repeated. Quill shifted again but when he looked up this time his face was sure, some of that embarrassment receding. He nodded, the longer of those little ginger tufts shifting with the motion.

“’s my grandaddy’s name. Mama always said she was gonna call me that if I - if I was - ” he gestured absently at the length of his body. “Y'know.”

Yondu didn’t bother trying to hide his eye-roll.

“I ain’t here to listen to your life story, boy. You want me to show you how to use the clippers or not?” He held an arm out to indicate the hallway he was poised at the mouth of, and Quill jumped to attention and trotted over.

“Yes please,” Quill said, falling into step alongside Yondu as he led the way back toward the captain’s quarters.

“Don’t be so polite, boy. Askin’ for trouble, that is.”

“Sorry.”

Yondu fought the urge to grind his teeth.

“Don’t apologize neither. It sends the wrong message.” He picked up his pace a little bit, trying to put a few feet of distance between himself and Quill. He liked the kid well enough, was glad he hadn’t couriered the little bastard right to his tyrant father’s doorstep, but it made his skin itch from time to time, being so explicitly responsible for another creature’s well-being. He was poorly suited to it and everyone knew it, though most of his crew was wary enough of his reputation not to make criticisms to his face.

Quill just sped up alongside him, though, gamely attempting to keep up though it resulted in his doing a funny little hop-skip every now and again, not quite walking but not quite jogging either.

After a few long moments of quiet, Quill said, muted and sincere, “Thanks.”

Yondu didn’t look at him, but he did reach over to tousle the sloppy mess Quill’d made of his hair.

“Better pay attention, boy, 'cause I’m only gonna learn you up proper this once,” he grumbled. “After that you’re on your own and it’s your own damn fault if the whole galaxy knows you as Peter Quill: the Fella with the Stupid Hair.”

The grin Quill shot him in response was broad enough that Yondu caught it out of the corner of his eye. Poorly suited, maybe, but Quill didn’t seem to mind.

Waitering lessons with Azusa Part 2
逆巻カナト(CV.梶 裕貴) & 無神アズサ(CV.岸尾だいすけ)
Waitering lessons with Azusa Part 2

Another favourite scene of mine from the tokuten drama cd that I got with the Sofmap bonus of Lunatic Parade. Kanato and Azusa are working as waiters and this scene follows exactly after where the first “Waitering lessons with Azusa” post I made left off, with Azusa continuing to teach an irritated Kanato how to be a waiter. So here’s more of Kanato being 1000% done with everything. I hope you enjoy! ꉂ(′ ॢꇴ ॢ‵๑))

Please do not repost this translation anywhere.

Azusa: Next, you carry the cake you received from the kitchen… to the customer’s table but…. before carrying the cake… it’s good… if you add this.

Kanato: Hey… Azusa… What…. are you doing…?

Azusa: A good luck charm to make it delicious… I’m sprinkling… shichimi togarashi onto it.

Kanato: No, that’s strange, isn’t it? Fresh cream and shichimi togarashi definitely don’t go together, do they not?!

Azusa: Eh? I wonder? But… *munching noises* Mmm… It’s delicious!

Kanato: Hey! Don’t just help yourself to the store’s products! Even though I’m holding myself back!

Azusa: Ah…. I couldn’t resist. Sorry…. Um…. Kanato-san, do you also want to try?

Kanato: I don’t need it! Spicy cake is definitely not tasty.

Azusa: You think? What a waste….

Kanato: That aside, you’re going to teach me various things aren’t you? Could you hurry up and let me finish this?

Azusa: Right… Then, in practice, try carrying…. this cake… to the table.

Kanato: Huh? That’s half-eaten you know.

Azusa: It’s fine. Right now… it’s practice.

Kanato: Ah, is that so.

Azusa: Place this cake… onto the tray…. and then… we need to add the warm coffee. You use a coffee mill… to grind…. the beans. Kanato-san, have a try.

Kanato: No. Since it’s practice, isn’t it fine to just pretend we’ve actually done it?

Azusa: You can’t do that. This… is quite difficult so…. Come on, try it out. Hey, hurry.

Kanato: Tch, I get it. I’ll do it already! Happy now?!

Kanato: Something like this is clearly simple. All you have to do is turn the handle. 

Kanato: Hey…. why does it stop?

Azusa: The coffee beans… might’ve been stuck. You need to turn it… more thoroughly.

Kanato: Tch…. Could you not complain about my actions? Ughhh geez, all of this is such a pain! Please move. Move! Uwaahh!! A-arghhh….

Azusa: A-are you alright?

Kanato: Hey… My apron…. is covered in shichimi togarashi coated cream….

Azusa: Eh? But…. That… was because Kanato-san…. was turning the handle too forcibly…

Kanato: Shut up! Are you saying that I’m the one at fault? It’s because you had to leave such a task to me!

Azusa: Ka-Kanato-san, calm down.

Kanato: Shut up! Shut up! I will not hang around with you any longer! I’m going home!

Azusa: No, you can’t…! Wait…!

Fandom: Power Rangers (2017)

Title: Breaking and Entering 

Characters: Kimberly Hart, Trini (Trimberly slanted)

Summary: It’s not entirely self-centered to seek comfort for yourself if you’re also checking up on someone else.


It was a thought that only had just now crossed her mind as Kimberly slid her fingers under the small crack between window and sill as she eased said window up. There was a fine line between breaking and entering and checking up on someone she cared about. Breaking and entering was more something along the lines of what a thief would do. Some random stranger would obviously cause harm. She wouldn’t.

Although, scaling the side of Trini’s house to the attic and quietly slipping inside of her room was, in fact, probably pretty illegal.

Considering that there had been no forewarning.

And now that she was inside of the room, plaster swept up into a corner, gaping holes staring back at her, she realized this was probably a bad way of checking up on someone in the middle of the night just because she couldn’t sleep.

The last time somebody had done this, it had been Rita.

That was only a week ago.

Trini still had the bruises on her neck.

Too late now, to rethink her decision.

Both feet were firmly planted on the floor.

It was kind of selfish, though, to barge into someone’s room with the pretense to check up on them.

Can i ask ur thoughts on the scene between len and flash at argus? Where barry was holding onto len as king shark was trying to pull him back into the cell? I loved that scene. They've come so far from 1x04. I loved how len invited himself to the westallen wedding too.

Originally posted by coldsflash

I thought the entire scene at ARGUS was really fascinating, to be honest. I think there’s a lot that we can clean from it, including how fascinating it is that once they made it past the main guards, Len was so good at getting them to the basement that the show didn’t even see fit to actually, well, show the process of getting down there.

It’s possible they used the facial transmorgrifying to get past any guards, because no one internally is gonna question Lyla once she’s past clearance, I imagine, and they can use her retinal and bio scans to get through most parts or turn off half of their issues, and we’ve seen the cold gun take out lasers.

But still, the whole damn thing goes so smooth until they’re down there. And then there’s King Shark, and Barry being ready to kill him, and Len being unimpressed with that. And it’s not like Len’s unwilling to kill, we know he’s more than willing to, but he clearly holds other people to different standards. 

I’ve talked about that before, a bit, why he would maybe hold Barry to a different standard, with the upshot being that the guy who inspired him not to kill and to find better methods isn’t allowed to toss that dedicated out the window now, especially not when he’s asking Len for help.

But anyway, things are going relatively well until the alarm goes off, and then Len gets stuck inside. And it’s neat, he half-expects Barry to ditch him, I think, based on the way he calls Barry’s name as soon as the door closes, separating them.

He switches quick into egging Barry on, reminding him he has to leave in under two minutes, but it’s some reverse-psychology. “This is your chance to show how ruthless you really are” because of course, Barry doesn’t want to be ruthless. Not the Barry that Len knew, at least. Is capable of it? Sure. But doesn’t want it. Doesn’t want to have to be.

And of course, Barry doesn’t disappoint. It’s Barry. No matter the consequences, he has honor, and he’s not about to throw someone under the bus and leave them behind when he’s responsible for them. 

It’s interesting too though. Think back to the first trip to E2, with Jay stuck in another cage. Barry could’ve phased through the glass to get Jay out, but didn’t have the energy left, and Zoom was coming, so he left. There were other lives to protect, his friends, but he left Jay behind with the promise that he’d return.

He had reason to believe Jay’s life wasn’t in immediate danger, and he didn’t know Jay yet, but still, it bears comparing.

Because if the guards arrive in the next minute, Len’s probably not going to turn into shark food. Him dying here would seriously screw up time considering he’s supposed to die a hero with the Legends, but Barry also has other lives he has to think about here, and getting caught up in ARGUS stuff and losing the power source would devastate his chances for saving Iris.

But even now, at the “ruthless” end of his rope, Barry doesn’t seem to even consider bolting. Maybe he considers it, but dismisses it immediately. He’s not leaving Leonard behind. 

And then the un-hackable door magically becomes hackable (likely because of Len’s tampering with it) and Barry urges Len to get out of there, only for him to get caught by King Shark at the last second. And then we get this.   

(he keeps saying “I got you” it kills me, just the reassurance that he’s not letting Len go no matter what)

Barry doesn’t hesitate to dive for him. In the space of a second, he goes from urging Len on under the door to launching himself forward, grabbing Len’s hand and pulling, definitely not letting him go. 

And you know something neat about this? Other than implied off-screen speed-running-carrying (since Barry had to get Len to 2017 somehow), the last time we saw them physically touch on screen was when Barry had Len pressed up to the mantle in 2x09? Barry has gone from physically pushing Len as a threat to physically pulling him to save him in the space of a single interaction, really.

I’m not sure what more you want me to say, except that it seems that every time these two work together, one of them gets the other into a pinch but ends up saving them (happens in 1x22, 2x03, and now here in 3x22). Their tally sheet must look like a messy with all the “you helped me, I saved your life, you saved my life, I helped you” back and forth they do. No wonder they seem to have simply thrown out their attempts to keep score.

Ohohoho it's this trash coming in your asks ( that didn't sound right ) How about- RFA+Saeran&V (after eye surgery ) react to MCs sister, who was staying at they're house, goes to use a blender, doesn't lock the top down, what ever was in the blender flies out and there's a mess everywhere and they hear MC freaking out at the scene of all of this and they go to see what was going on?

  • mc’s sister was also in town and decided to visit (she met zen before its chill)
  • the three of them were supposed to go out that day, but it was..too hot

  • “ready for some smoothies, my dear sibling?” mc’s sister says with a grin

  • she turns on the blender, ready for the ice, berries, and liquid to mix together
  • instead, the top flies off and so does everything else in the blender
  • mc’s sister is covered with cold berry juice, too shocked to scream, but tenses up
  • mc starts yelling going for the blender to turn it off before grabbing a towel
  • zen runs back in, thinking something dangerous happened, but instead sees mc wiping their sister’s eyes so she can see again
  • and he can’t help but laugh

Neon and Dust

The Shoot space western AU that no one asked for.

(AN: The rough first chapter of the person of interest space western au that no one asked for. Rough because I haven’t fully finished world building stuff and won’t until I finish STC. It’s a bit long for tumblr but I didn’t want to move it over to ao3 just yet. The hub planets, if I ever write that far, will be more cyberpunk-y thus the neon in the title. Final rating unknown as of yet.)


“Call.”

Shaw looked around the table over the top of her cards. “You boys sure about that?”

The sound of a ship passing overhead roared through the bar and the entire building shook slightly, bottles rattling on shelves. Sounded like a freighter to her, probably headed towards the nearest terminal to blink the hell away from this dusty hellhole on the outskirts of nowhere.

“I said call, you damned cyborg.” The big guy across the table from her had been getting angrier and mouthier over the last few rounds as the little blue numbers on the credits bar in front of Shaw had ticked steadily upwards.

Shaw almost rolled her eyes at the insult; she was pretty sure he didn’t actually know about her arm. She dropped her cards on the table. “Read em and weep.”

She heard quiet mutters throughout the bar as everyone took in her cards.

“You’re cheating.” The man on her left stood up and leaned on his fist on the table, trying to tower over her.

“Maybe you’ve just got shit luck.” Shaw slouched further in her chair, the smallest of smiles playing around her lips. It was really too damn hot for the fight that was inevitably going to break out. Despite the fans turning lazily on the ceiling, there wasn’t even the semblance of a breeze in the dark bar.

“Well, your luck just ran out.”

The man reached behind himself, presumably for his gun, but Shaw didn’t wait to know for sure. Her left arm shot out under the table and clamped onto his upper leg, squeezing hard enough that she felt something snap. He screamed incoherently, and collapsed to the floor.

There was a long moment of silence and then the other two men at the table both jumped up, reaching for their guns. Shaw finally did roll her eyes and kicked the table over at them. She used the time it took them to recover to unfold herself from her chair and stand up, rolling her shoulders back and cracking her knuckles. The knuckles on her right hand, anyway.

Her left arm, hidden beneath her long coat and a very special glove a friend had gotten for her, was a bit…different. She’d have to pull her punches a little in this place or someone would catch on. (The man whose leg she had just pulverized could be a problem, but it had been so worth it).

Or maybe she could take them all on with only her right arm. Sounded like a good challenge. She wasn’t carrying any weapons today, didn’t want to give the local Samaritan Enforcement officers any reason to take a shot at her.

In her peripheral vision she saw five or six other people from the bar slowly moving in.

Looked like it was going to be a fun assignment after all.

When the local Enforcement officers got to the scene five minutes later, Shaw was the only one left standing. Mostly standing. One of her new friends had smashed a bottle on her leg and done a bit of damage, but nothing too serious.

“Empty your hands and turn around!”

Shaw sighed and dropped the man she’d been holding by the throat. She turned around slowly and raised her hands.

“Don’t want any trouble, gentlemen.” She tried to look harmless, though she was aware that given the large number of injured, groaning bodies around her it was probably a tough sell. But pummeling Enforcement agents was not on today’s agenda so she needed to play along. These guys were pretty pathetic as Enforcement agents went, the bottom of the barrel, but they still technically reported in to Samaritan and that meant not causing a scene.

Well, more of a scene.

She should have gotten out of here sooner, but it was too late to regret that.

“Arrest her,” snapped the leader of the squad. “And don’t try anything or we’ll open fire.”

“Wouldn’t dream of it, officer.”

Reese was going to have a hissy fit when he bailed her out.


“Finally.” Shaw stood up when the Enforcement officer approached the cell door.

He looked at her and sneered. “Oh, you’re not getting out. We’ve just got some company for you.”

Another officer came down the hall, shoving a woman in front of him.

“Oh, hell no.” Shaw stalked over to the bars. “You are not putting her in here with me.”

“You two know each other?”

Shaw glared at the other woman, took in the mischievous look in her eyes and the shit-eating grin on her face.

“I know her type.”

“I thought I was your type, sweetie.”

Shaw was tempted to give herself away and just punch straight through the bars and knock the woman’s teeth in. Instead, she fumed quietly and made herself step back so they could open the door.

The first officer shoved her new companion into the cell and slammed the gate behind her. Both men turned to leave.

“Aren’t you forgetting something?” the woman called after them, holding up her still-restrained wrists.

“Those stay on,” the first officer said. “We don’t want any repeats of what happened earlier.” Both officers disappeared through the metal door at the end of the hall.

“Well, I can’t say much for the hospitality here, but at least the company is excellent.”

Shaw made a disgusted noise. “Why the hell are you here, Root?”

Root pulled experimentally on the metal cuffs. “I got arrested, obviously.”

“Yeah, I don’t buy that for even a second.”

Root only smiled and waltzed past her to perch daintily on the edge of the bench that ran along the back wall of the small holding cell.

He Tian x Mo Guanshan -Don’t ever leave me again-

For you, dear anon! <3 Thank you for waiting for me to finish this, it took a while but I stuffed my whole heart into this. Don’t worry, it’s not just angst, there is some major fluff at the end. *wedding bells tolling in the background* I hope you enjoy!

 

Prologue

He Tian raised his fist, threatening and his eyes burning like black fire. Hate was oozing from every piece of his body, nothing else mattered besides the feeling of loss and regret. God, he was so fucking gone.

The other man stared right back at him, sinister as the night and a cruel smirk adorning his lips, wide and disgustingly wrong. Black strands of sweaty, bloody hair stuck to his prominent high cheek bones and forehead, throwing dark shadows over the top half of the face he loathed. He couldn’t stand it and rammed his hand into the mirror, breaking it into thousands of pieces, destroying his own accusing reflection, the last thing he wanted to see. A silent scream ripped his throat like one of the glass shards, his whole body felt heavy, so heavy. His knees gave in and he sacked against the wall, slowly sliding down at it, his cut hand leaving bloody prints on the white tiles. As if he’d give a fuck.


 „Tian…?“


 His lips twitched from holding back a laugh. There was nothing. The bathroom door was still open, the house still empty and he was still not…

Slowly, he leaned his head back, staring at the ceiling.

Pathetic, his father would have said. His brother would have said. And worst of all, if he would have witnessed him in this godforsaken second, he would have been of the same opinion.

It was his fault and he deserved this, if he hadn’t just been that sure of himself. Not that sure of his strength. Not that sure that everything would stay within his control. Not that convinced of his options to work out as planned.

Guanshan, his one and only weakness.

queen-max  asked:

(1/2)Ok so I was reading this Silver meta that covers his entire character arc (less episode ten because I think it was written before it aired) that made some very good and interesting points. However, one thing that stuck out to me was his lost leg was kind of glossed over, and one of the assessments regarding his character, while true of many of his actions, contradicts that particular one.

(2/2) It got me thinking. What are your thoughts on it? I came late to the fandom so this has probably been discussed before, but it’s one of the defining points of Silver’s story, and I want to know everyone’s thoughts.

Ok, so this answer got truly excessive. It’s ridiculous. I thought I was barely scratching the surface of things there were to say about the significance of the loss of Silver’s leg to his character arc, but then it got longer than most of the undergrad essays I ever wrote (final word count 3110…). Yikes. I don’t know if I went overboard, or whether there really is just that much to point out, but this became a literal essay with quotes and everything. Suffice it to say, I think my one line tl;dr is: ‘if you write about Silver’s character arc without talking about the loss of his leg then you’re really missing a lot, because it ties into everything’. Either that or I’m reaching and rambling and I need to not do that.

A longer tl;dr: The loss of his leg opened up a whole world of new experiences for Silver. It forced him to feel and do and be things he had spent a long time carefully shutting out, and in doing so it didn’t just turn him into a new person, but a person who was at odds with all of the things he had built his previous life upon.

I’ll put the rest under a cut, because otherwise I’d be a dash-clogging monster.

His Needs/Her Needs: More long-winded Karamel analysis for 2.14

His Needs/Her Needs

In some of my previous meta, I contrasted the opening scene of 214 with the closing scene, saying that in the opening scene Mon-El was seeking to have his own needs met and in the closing scene, was meeting Kara’s. I’d like to expand on what I believe their needs to be at this point - what each of them are looking for in the relationship- and how the meeting of those needs are interconnected.

While I do believe that Mon El was focused on his own needs at the beginning of the episode, there is nothing inherently wrong with having those needs or seeking to have them met by his significant other- just as there was nothing wrong with Kara asking that her needs be met and respected as she did during the episode. The problem comes when one party is only considering their own needs and not the other person’s instead of having both be an equal priority. And as a brand new relationship, this interplay is something that these two are still figuring out.

When we see Mon El in the opening scene he is waking up and looking for Kara. He is immediately concerned that she left because the sex wasn’t good enough. When she returns, he tells her that he’d like her to wake up with him and also tries convince her to stay with him instead of going to work.

At first glance, it seems like the need that Mon-El is trying to get met is sex. That maybe maybe that he is trying to domesticate Kara for his own purposes or disregard the importance of her work responsibilities. But if you look a little deeper, I believe that what is is actually wanting and trying to ask for here is SECURITY. He wants to feel secure in their relationship. Kara has gone back and forth so many times about whether she wants to be with him or not he is good enough for her that he doesn’t feel confident that she wants him. He knows how he feels about her and has been very vocal about it, but she hasn’t expressed her feelings towards him to the same degree. This is why he asks to confirm that there is an “us” between them and then looks pleasantly surprised when she says yes. He wasn’t sure if she wanted an emotional relationship or just a physical one and he wasn’t sure if she’d changed her mind again since the night before. He is also afraid that if they go out of this safe space, into the real world, that he will mess it up and ruin the happiness and connection that he is feeling right now.

His fears come to pass almost immediately when Kara asks for time and privacy (her needs) and Mon El immediately announces their relationship to the world (his need.) There is honestly no way to fully understand his actions here except to say that I think the writers were trying to create an outrageous moment for comedic effect. Underlying his actions, though, might have been Mon El’s own excitement that this relationship is actually happening and his effort to make it real and permanent by putting it out there to others in a public space. So there’s that. It’s a weak motivation for violating her wishes in my opinion but maybe that’s where it was coming from.

Moving on to Jeremiah… Let’s talk about why Mon El’s need to protect Kara and have her safe is so strong. She can take care of herself and has asked him to let her, so why can he become so irrational when he sees a threat against her? We’ve seen him jump through a portal to a dangerous moon to follow her instead of calling for backup as she asked, and we’ve seen him leave the police officers unprotected to help her when she appeared to be helpless and losing a fight even though he was instructed not to. Now we see him completely unable to keep his thoughts in his head and act in a socially-acceptable-on-Earth-way at a family dinner when he sees Jeremiah as a potential threat to Kara and the DEO. What gives?

I think a lot of the motivation behind this comes down to him having lost everything and everyone that the cares about on his home planet. He came here and woke up alone, and Kara was the one who befriended him, believed in him, and ultimately inspired him. Now she is the thing that he cares most about on this planet and the person who is most valuable to her. He is her person… um, alien. He is terrified of losing her too. Also, most humans see Kara as invincible because of her powers, and she also sees herself that way because she is so strong compared to everyone else on Earth. But as a fellow alien, Mon El know that Kara does have some vulnerabilities. He’s seen her get hurt and it you can see in his face how much it kills him when it happens. And as someone who grew up to adulthood on corrupt planet, I think he’s seen some shit and that makes him more aware of intergalactic threats that could actually cause harm to her than she is. He also knew how ruthless Cadmus could be because he had watched them manipulate her into blowing out her powers and then hurt her, and they did it by using her concern for him against her. Now he sees Cadmus+someone Kara cares deeply for and it’s a huge red flag.

But this need is HIS need. If she needs his protection, she is unaware of it, and emotionally it’s not something she needs from a relationship. HER need in a professional context is for autonomy and true partnership. She wants him to respect her ability to take care of herself and to make the right strategic calls in the field. As the more experienced superhero, she needs him to follow her leadership so that she can depend on him and he doesn’t become a liability or leave others in harm’s way. In this moment, she needed him to put her need for a peaceful family gathering and celebration with Jeremiah above his need to protect her, but as hard as he tried, he was ultimately unable to do that. As a result, Kara tells him that it’s not going to work between them if he can’t learn to listen and respect her needs. This is fair, but also puts him on shaky ground again in regards to their relationship. Jeremiah also threatens his relationship with her by holding the truth about his identity over his head as a threat to back off. He chooses to push forward anyway and chooses the risk of losing his romantic relationship with Kara over the risk of losing Kara or another member of the team to Cadmus. Her safety comes first for him.

In the second half of the episode we see them starting to move towards each other slightly. Mon El goes to Winn for help - a much better and more respectful approach to keeping her safe- and they both go to Kara with evidence that Jeremiah broke into the DEO mainframe. While she’s initially angry at his persistence and going behind her back, the two of them together plus some hard evidence causes her to take the possibility of Jeremiah being a double agent seriously. She immediately confronts Jeremiah to ask for an explanation in a not-so-stealthy move. Jeremiah offers a plausible coverup that Alex buys hook line and sinker and everyone else seems to as well. Kara gets raked over the coals for this “betrayal” by her sister -which was extremely hurtful considering that she is adopted and struggles with loneliness and belonging to begin with- but Kara decides that Mon-El is right about needing to look at the situation from all sides and stands her ground. See that? She could have buried her head back in the sand like Alex did and believed what she desperately wanted to about Jeremiah and keep the peace with her sister, but she didn’t. She is starting to listen to Mon-El’s perspective, and take his view into account. This is a good move on her part and shows that she is respecting his need to protect her and hearing his voice. She doesn’t blindly accept his point of view but she does take it into consideration and this is a big step towards them becoming true partners and finding a balance between her need for autonomy and his need to protect.

In this situation, it wasn’t enough though. Kara and the team are led into the trap that Cadmus and Jeremiah have set for them, and Mon El is there with them to back her up. I see this as him supporting her and the DEO’s action plan even though he is wary of it. So this was a small step in her direction just as she made one towards him in hearing him out. He was right this time. She might be right the next time. But if they can work together they will have a better chance in the future of making the right calls and defeating the bad guys.

So let’s get to my favorite scene, shall we? Mon-El walks into Kara’s apartment ready to start the apology cycle again and when he sees her looking absolutely wrecked, it breaks his heart and he stops himself. He figures out that this time it’s not about his need to defend himself or be right or to apologize, it’s about comforting her in the moment. So he asks her what she needs and listen to what she says to him:

“To be here with me”

Hear that? She is saying she needs HIM. His presence, his emotional support.

And because of his insecurity, he doesn’t quite believe that it’s that’s simple, that he could be enough for her, or that his presence and support could be all she needs. So he asks again:

“Do you need anything ELSE, or???”

“To wake up with me”

She confirms that not only is he what she wants right now, but she also wants him there in the morning, in the future. And he gets a little smile on his face because in meeting her needs, his need for security in the relationship that he has been looking for is finally met also. She wants HIM. She needs HIM. She wants him to be there with her and that is enough. He doesn’t have to try so hard because he is already what she needs.

I believe that this is also what Kara has been chasing with Mon-El but couldn’t quite find. I think that way back when he kissed her the first time, he gave her a taste of something she had really been missing in her life. She was sad and feeling defeated by he Medusa virus that was killing him, and he offered her emotional support and companionship in that moment. He took some of that burden from her and saw the woman under the cape instead of just the invincible superhero. As she has said, the cape can get heavy sometimes, and she can feel very alone on this planet at the end of the day. Something about the way that he related to her in the moment got her to start second guessing her decision to choose being Supergirl instead of having a relationship and made be start wanting it all. She started seeing him in a new light and considering him as a romantic interest after that. She hadn’t been able to express it until this moment, but this is what she needed from him emotionally. This is why she’s persisted through the bumps in the road and some of his frustrating behavior to try to find that feeling again. In this moment, they both finally found what they were looking for in each other.

It was the summer of 2001...

It’s summer of 2001; Joe meets Patrick and he’s like “Yo, I know about music.” and Patrick’s like “Yo, I know more about music” “That’s impossible. Do you wanna start a band?” And Patrick’s like “…Yeah… That’s cool.” And then he’s like “Yo, this is a book store, it’s not a music store!”

And then they met at Patrick’s house. And Patrick’s wearing shorts and socks and a hat. Patrick is playin’ drums for some fuckin’ reason! And Pete’s there, for some reason! They start playin’ music together. And they’re like “Oh, let’s play some fuckin’ covers from some other bands!” It was like, Green Day and fuckin’ Misfits and fuckin’ Ramones! Pete said to Joe “Yo, we gotta change this shit up! Yo, we’ve played all these bands; let’s play shit from Fall Out Boy.” And so Pete and Patrick are like “Yo, that’s dope. But we need a fuckin’ drummer!” Because Patrick’s playin’ drums and he’s a singer! Patrick’s like “Yo! I got a soul voice!” And they’re like “Wait, how do you have a soul voice!?!” And he’s like “Yo, watch this! Yeah!” and they’re like “Oh my god! That sounds like soul!” So they put it in the song and it was like “WHERE IS YOUR BOY TONIGHT!”

And then they’re like: “Yo, this is fuckin’ perfect. This is Fall Out Boy.” And they made records like, Evening Out With Your Ex-Girlfriend. Evening Out With Your Ex-Girlfriend, everybody loves it.
-It’s called: Evening Out With Your Girlfriend.
-With Your Ex-Girlfriend! It’s called Evening Out With Your Ex-Girlfriend! It’s called Eating Out Your Girlfriend, and it’s real and it doesn’t matter. And Pete talked to Patrick and Joe and he was like “Yo, what the fuck! Yo, this is gonna be fuckin’ dope!” So they made a record, and it was called: Take This To Your Grave. They made it without a drummer! And they had like three, four drummers come in. The four drummers they had come in were like: Josh Freese, Neil Peart, the dude from Toto… The fourth one was like the guy from Papa Roach or something. And they were like, “Yo, we need Andy Hurley. Andy Hurley. Take this to your grave. Fuckin’ record it.” And he did it, and he killed it. He was like,Bigadigadigalalululapssshhhh! Killing the skins! Tapping the skins! Tapping the rims! Playing the shit! Killing these bitches! Wrapping it out!
(You’re getting a fucking tattoo right now! What the fuck is going on?!)
“We should get signed, to Fueled by Ramen. ‘Cause these guys know what the fuck is going on.” And they were like “Yo, if you can make our scene any bigger than it is, which is not fuckin’ hard. We will sign you guys.” Pete was like ”Yo! We got this record that’s fuckin’ dope dude! It’s called Take This To Your Grave.“ Hey, it’s gonna be called From Under The Cork Tree, it’s gonna be fuckin’ huge. And then Patrick’s like “I gotta keep it real, I gotta keep it artistic. These are three songs that are gonna make the album and it’s called (burp), this is called: Thanks for the Memories, 20 Dollar Nosebleed, and Sugar We’re Going Down..” And they made this record that was fucking dope and it fucking hit on the charts.
Like: one, two, three! Three, two one! Three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten! TEN TO ONE! From Under The Cork Tree sold like, four million records! Ten million records! Fifteen million records! And Brendon Urie had nothing to do with the entire record. And Patrick was like “That’s good!” Pete was like “Yo, fuck you! I can do whatever I want!” Joe was like “Yeah, it’s cool man, whatever… I don’t give a shit.” And then Andy was like “Eh… Cool!” And Pete was like "Makeup is fuckin’ great for a guy. Because it makes a guy look beautiful. Which a lot of times, a guy is not beautiful. And I wanna change that.I wanna make sure everybody thinks that guys are beautiful.”

(-I’m good so far.
-You wanna spit one more time?
-Yeah, I do.
…Shut the fuck!..)

Pete was like “Oh my god, I’m so embarrassed about this dick pic!” And then I saw the dick pic, and I was like “Eh, it’s not bad. It’s not a bad dick. Let’s be real.” We made Rolling Stone one issue before Fall Out Boy. And Fall Out Boy made the issue right after us and they were so pissed! They were like “Yo, fuck you guys!” They were like “Yo! Panic has the fucking cover of Rolling Stone!?! Yo, fuck these dudes, we’re gonna fucking go miles above! We’re gonna hit every fucking continent there is known to man!” But they didn’t! Because they missed a second of time. Apparently, they were like: “Oh, shit we got every continent.” And they didn’t actually hit it. Dude, Pete was like “What the fuck!” Oh, you didn’t fuckin’ make the continent. It’s like, fuck you!

So From Under The Cork Tree happens, we fuckin’ have three, four years of awesomeness! Like people are cumming on themselves, 'cause it’s so big! So Fall Out Boy was like, so Patrick’s like “Yo, we’re gonna name this record 'From Under The Cork Tree’ and From Infinity On High.” Pete was like “Yo, Folie à Deux means, the Theatric of Two.” Fall Out Boy was like “Yo, we gotta take a break” meaning, Pete was like “Yo, we gotta take a break bro” and Patrick’s like, “I need time for my music! Uhhh!” And Joe’s like “Yo, I need time to find the fuckin’ art dude I gotta find some fuckin’ meau-metal.” And Andy’s like “I’m just gonna play with some fuckin’ metal bands.”

And they were like, “Alright, this breaks been like three years long. Two years long. Three years long. Three and a half? We gotta fuckin’ come back man. We gotta come back STRONG!
(-You took my beer away, what the fuck?!
-No, you poured it all over yourself!
-Yeah, you poured it on yourself, man.)
We gotta make this shit legit. It’s gonna be fuckin’ dope. It’s gonna go fuckin’ sky high. We’re gonna make a fuckin’ record that sails the skies. We’re gonna call this record: "Save Rock And Roll."” So they made Alone Together, Light 'Em Up, Alone Together, Phoenix. And everyone’s like “What the fuck? You’re working with this guy who fuckin’ recorded Avril Lavigne and P!nk!”
(-What the fuck is this on my shirt, did I puke on my shirt?
-No, you poured beer all over yourself!
-Oh god…)
Pete was like: “Yo, were gonna end up on the tour with Panic! At The Disco and Twenty Pilots.” (Burp, spit) And that’s all. And that’s all that matters. And that is how the fucking story goes.

anonymous asked:

As a premise, I love sasusaku. I wanted to ask you what do you think about the end of garden, when Sasuke doesn't kiss or anything and goes away leaving her hanging. I mean, I understand the smirk and all but they didn't see each other for years... Why would he negate her this simple act between spouses? And also humiliating her a little, imho? For me it was very anticlimactic, and I wonder what you think about it. Also, love Penthesileia, one of the best fic here in Tumblr, congrats!

I think that was Kishimoto trolling the readers for nagging at him even after he ended the series in what he thought was a definitive way. The thing about writers, when readers nag us about stuff we think is self-explanatory, we can be dicks :P

He wrote Gaiden to diffuse the absolutely ridiculous notion that Sarada was Karin’s daughter, by juxtaposing the whole thing with the equally ridiculous premise of ChoCho trying to find her “real” father. And then he kept SasuSaku fans hanging because they seem to think the ultimate expression of love is a kiss/sex/confession. It’s not. To some people, the ultimate expression of love is holding hands, or exchanging a set phrase that has great meaning for both parties or some other type of gesture. For Sasuke, the ultimate expression of caring for anyone (especially in the mind of a man who had as horrible a childhood as he had), it’s the forehead poke. 

Also, Sasuke is the epitome of stoic Japanese man. In Asian cultures, it is so very rare for a couple to demonstrative in public, and if they are, it’s usually looked down on or considered inappropriate. (Note that showing affection to children has slightly different rules, which is why he had no problem hugging Sarada).

Sasuke is not the PDA type, and I have no doubt that Sakura knows this. Personally, I think her reaction was an exaggerated part of an ongoing joke between the two of them. Given the fact Sarada didn’t seem to suddenly think that her entire epiphany about her parents connection was invalidated by the goodbye scene, she probably sees this as affectionate teasing between a loving couple as well. 

Sasuke probably spent a few days at home reconnected with his family before he left. Remember, he is on an important mission, and now they are all aware of it. Sakura and Sarada would never demand he stay home and be with them given the importance of the mission, because they are both shinobi and recognise the need to carry out important missions.

I do, however, think Sasuke has recognised he handled this badly the first time, and will probably take more of an effort to visit home more often between Gaiden and the Boruto movie. Given that Sarada is more at ease around her father in the movie, and from the scenes I’ve seen in the Boruto video game, he probably checks in every few months. 

If you’re looking for a good fic that deals with this moment, which I pretty much use as my own headcanon, check out Day & Night by Finval. It does an excellent job of resolving any lingering doubts and issues. 

(And really, did you actually want Kishimoto, who has admitted that he is horrible at writing romance, to write shippy scenes between Sasuke and Sakura? There’s a reason the NaruHina moments in the anime and movies felt so forced… No slight to NaruHina, I actually shipped them before SasuSaku, but their relationship was not developed half as much as SasuSaku was…precisely because Kishimoto was trying too hard!)

Hope that answers your question - and thanks for the compliment on Penthesilea, I’ll try to get the next chapter out as soon as possible!

anonymous asked:

Didn't you think the movie makes no sense ?

No.  Not really.

When concerning about Kaiba, anyway, since this is his movie so it’s intended to be Kaiba-centric, meant to give him closure (and a future), and it was well done.

Many people by today over the weekend will have seen the dubbed version of the movie and not the original Japanese version, so maybe this is why some viewers are confused by Kaiba’s motivations and path?

Just remember that the movie was originally made to revolve around the manga’s ending.  This included their ideas, the way the scenes were storyboarded, animated, choice of words and emotions — it’s meant to be an animated sequel to the manga.  (The dubbed version tweaks the film to make it an anime continuity instead - while makes sense in a way for the West (anime’s more well known here), it renders a couple of scenes in the manga-contiunity-only parts a little wonky to really fit in the anime timeline.  Namely, the “failures” about his duel with virtual Atem and Kaiba’s “reactions” to nothing happening when Yugi puts the puzzle together for him).

So here, I’m going to talk about Kaiba.

In the manga, he was not present at all in the Memory’s arc and the Ceremonial Duel between Yugi and Atem.  At all.  He did not see him off or was even aware to an understanding that Atem went to the afterlife to stay there forever and wasn’t in the Millennium Puzzle anymore.  He might’ve heard circumstances about the duel which is why he went looking for the ruins, but…

So, when was the last time Kaiba had anything to do with Atem?

The Battle City Semi-finals.  His last proper duel and major interaction was with him there.  He lost that duel and vows to fight him again to beat him (as does everyone else like Mai and Jou, but that’s besides the point).  His character development point stops there. The film takes the Kaiba from that point in time (with just a 6ish months to a year time skip since the series’ finale) and puts that Kaiba in the story where he’s still going after Atem.  Because that’s where he previously was when concerning him.  He still needs to defeat him, he still has his life goal to reach (all the impossible turned possible because that’s Seto Kaiba for you).  This isn’t really about Kaiba having regressed because what people meant by saying this was Kaiba “regressing” to his Battle City self which is.. the actual point of taking his BC characterization as the starting point in the movie.  The manga-continuity film picks up Kaiba’s character where it got left off last and that was when.

On the contrary, in the anime, he was present to be involved in the entire Pharaoh’s Memory World arc. Yami Bakura lured him into it using Blue-Eyes to get his interest.  He goes, gets sucked in into the RPG world, did Kaiba-y shit. After that is all over, Kaiba tries to be persistent on being the one to duel Atem in the Ceremonial Duel, says he needs his vendetta against him, until Yugi stands up to him and denies his demanding requests while apologizing because it will be him to duel Atem.  This is where the dub comes in with the “getting revenge by defeating Atem in a duel” I think, but alas, that was the subbed version and I’m not even sure what the dub did with that scene — I’d imagine it went along of the same lines.  Ishizu has been explaining that the Pharaoh can only go to the afterlife if he drops his sword (in their case - cards) and be defeated in a fight (duel).  Kaiba knows and had listened to all of this, is well aware of the circumstances of Atem leaving or not — and if Atem goes, it’s for good, done and over.  He saw the Millennium Tablet shattering and they evacuate the place to outside, and that’s it.  Counting fillers, Atem and Kaiba had continuous interactions and duels after Battle City till the finale’s end of Kaiba bearing witness. (If the dub considers their Capsule Monsters anime side story and Pyramid of Light movie to be a part of their dub anime canon as well prior to dub DSOD, that adds up much more.)

There’s a big difference there.  This is why I felt Kaiba’s heartwrenching reactions to “see? Atem is gone forever and he’s not in the puzzle anymore” makes little sense in consideration of an anime continuity the dub’s going for. I am glad Yugi retains some of his original personality/lines in that scene rather than moping on how he misses him.

Back to the film on Kaiba’s motivations: after obsessing he wanted to defeat Atem in Battle City to be the next Duel King / King of Games, he… doesn’t at all here.  He’s more concerned about Atem the person.  Not titles.  Yugi is the new Duel King / King of Games, yeah, but it’s not Yugi that he wants, because it’s not about the titles, for once!  Kaiba grew past that, it seems.  He wants Atem, his real rival and friend.  Atem has always been his goal in strength because he’s the obstacle in his path and future, and he wants to confront it by all means possible.

Granted, I still find Kaiba as a person infuriating, though, I do truly believe that when Kaiba and Yugi teamed up, after Kaiba sacrificed himself, after Kaiba genuinely smiling at Yugi afterwards saying they each have their own bonds with him — and their different ways of coping depending on what they went through, Kaiba did meet his interests half way and went to move past the Puzzle manifesto in peace.  The reassembly of the Millennium Puzzle was a turning point for him to help him onto a new path, to move forward until at last, he gets to confront Atem.  His friends (Yugi and gang) get to move forward to their future, so I am sure this is what they would want Kaiba to find his way, as well.

There was no duel, and that’s okay, I don’t think a duel is needed.  What gives it a satisfying conclusion and closure is that no matter how far Kaiba willingly strives for, he will find his own closure eventually because that’s what he truly desires and would make his heart happy, and I am happy for him.

This was about Seto Kaiba’s journey, that there aren’t anything such as “deadends” to achieve his own solace.

holyhayle  asked:

I know you didn't like the SOSN ending and I didn't either, so I figured, could you do some headcanons on events surrounding each tlc character and couple besides Kaider and how do you think their endings would go post-revolution?

Well, I’d like to include Kaider because I have thoughts on how their story should have unfolded!!

  • Kaider: Even though these two are busy running their own countries thousands of miles away from each other, they always always always find some time to talk to each other – even if it’s only five minutes in between meetings.
    • Cinder continues to rule over Luna, taking her time to hold fair trials, make necessary changes to her council and court, and mindfully establish a republic. She reunites the Shells and wolf-hybrids with their families and communities and sets up lots of agencies and groups to help with these transitions. After (at least) ten years of a new and stable Luna, she then begins to transition the country into a fully functional republic and begins to hold elections for a Grand Master/Mistress. 
    • Kai returns to a battered and mourning country. He spends a lot of time reaching out to the communities most affected by Levana’s attacks and tries to regain the mistrust the country has. His top priority is to make sure that the people of the Eastern Commonwealth can trust that though he is young, his top priority is the safety and prosperity of his country. 
    • After Cinder abdicates her throne, she becomes a Lunar ambassador to help facilitate a smooth and peaceful transition. Slowly, she begins to spend more time on Earth and in the company of the young E.C. emperor. Although they eventually get married, Cinder doesn’t adopt the title of Empress and after a couple of years, the Eastern Commonwealth becomes a Constitutional Monarchy. 
  • Wolflet: True to their word, they travel with Thorne and Cress to help deliver the letumosis antidote. They spend a solid three months distributing the drug all throughout the American Republic and after their contract is up with President Vargas, the European Federation contract Thorne and crew to distribute the drug. By this time Scarlet and Wolf are only spending half of their time on the Rampion with the other part of their time seeing to the farm. When the contract with the E.F. is done, Scarlet and Wolf retire to the farm full time.
    • Scarlet continues to make the farm her top priority and after the revolution, there is a surge of interest. Also, Benoit Farm started experimenting with some interesting fruit and vegetables thanks to Winter and Cinder which makes the farm very popular with the hipster scene. 
    • Wolf finds comfort into putting in a hard’s day work on the farm and it’s a great way to dispense of all of his pent up energy. Soon, wolf-hybrids begin reaching out to Wolf and Scarlet and the couple take it upon themselves to help with these immigrations. They put the hybrids in touch with farms around the area as hired hands. It helps that the people of Rieux are much more understanding than most because they’re so used to Wolf. 
    • When they eventually have kids (triplet boys and a girl), Wolf is a wonderful Mr. Mom complete with flower print apron and prize winning pies and jams.
  • Cresswell: Thorne doesn’t know for sure if he’s ever kept a single promise besides promising himself he’d get his hands on a Rampion. But he knows he is damn well going to keep his promise to Cress and take her anywhere she wants to go. 
    • They find themselves gazing over the emerald moors of Scotland, walking hand in hand through spice markets in Morocco, swimming with dolphins in the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean, and even huddled together in fur-lined parkas while standing on a glacier. 
      • Thorne takes Cress to deserted beaches and crowded Tokyo streets. They visit old opera houses and art museums. Sometimes Cress has to hold onto Thorne’s hands tightly in case his fingers start itching to grab a jewel-encrusted necklace. 
    • Eventually, after Thorne thinks he has taken Cress to every single square of land on Earth, she asks him to take her to L.A. to meet his family. Unable to break his promise to her, he swallows his pride and reaches out to his parents. A meeting is set and the Thornes begin to ssslllooowwwlllyyy mend their strained relationship. It turns out that no Thorne is immune to the charms of Cress Darnel. 
    • Soon after this, Thorne begins to wonder (and worry) if Cress will want to settle down. After all, they have seen the entire world and what girl doesn’t want a house with a picket fence? And Cress seems to adore Benoit Farms. He’s never seen that sort of future for himself and worries that he’s not cut out for that sort of life. Fortunately, Cress surprises him by mentioning that they haven’t been to Budapest in a while and they begin their second world tour.
  • Jacinter: Much to the delight of the new Lunar queen, Winter being a Lunar ambassador to Earth is a huge success. And much to the delight of Winter, she finds Earth absolutely charming. Like Cress, Winter partakes in all Earth has to offer. Her favorite, being of course, all of the delicious candies and treats she gets to try. 
    • Winter spends her days meeting with dignitaries and sightseeing and her evenings embroidering beautiful quilts and shawls full of scenes from her travels. True to his word, Jacin accompanies Winter on these missions, all the while taking online medical courses.
    • After many years of travel, the two return to Luna where Winter joins Cinder’s counsel to help rebuild while Jacin begins taking classes in earnest at the university in Artemisia. 
    • Eventually, Winter gets elected as Grand Mistress of Luna and serves four terms. After deciding not to run for the fifth time, the people of Luna vote to instate term limits, thus making Winter the longest Grand Minister in the history of Luna. Surprisingly, Jacin is one of the more popular First Gentlemen. After finishing medical school, instead of becoming a doctor, he decides to work on Winter’s council and create lots of policies involving healthcare and medical research.
      • Jacin also mellows out dramatically, what with having to deal with so many people all the time. He’s still a stern First Gentleman, but also kind.
  • Iko is still Iko and as predicted by Thorne, goes everywhere Cinder goes. She’s actually a pretty amazing Councilwoman and because she doesn’t sleep, takes on the duties of Cinder’s personal assistant and head of household. 
    • When Cinder eventually returns to Earth, Iko, of course, goes with her. She continues her role as Cinder’s personal assistant and head of household at New Beijing Palace. She personally loves planning and executing the E.C.’s Peace Balls and they are (along with all the other events she plans) a consistent subject for all the gossip and entertainment news feeds. 
    • After many many many years of constantly listening to Iko complain about how she can’t eat, Cinder and Cress eventually come up with a way to allow Iko to at least experience taste. She still can’t technically eat anything, but she does lick things. A. Lot. 
    • When the crew start having kids, Iko basically appoints herself keeper of all of these children and their children and their children’s children. 

Well, this was crazy long. But also, I feel like all my headcanons are basically what I think will happen to the crew post-revolution. Want more? You can read them here

Episode 81: THE FINALS COUNTDOWN

doodooDOOdoo doodoo-doodoodoo doodooDOOdoo doodoo-doodoodoodoodoo etc etc

Everyone’s congregating at Domino Stadium, which is (a) half-built and (b) owned by Kaiba. I am frankly astonished it’s not called the SETO KAIBA BLUE EYES WHITE DRAGON STADIUM BROUGHT TO YOU BY KAIBACORP but maybe it will be once he finishes building it and adding the requisite dragon statues.

Malik and Rishid are hiding out in the stands.

Well one would hope so, he literally owns the place.

The Yugi-tachi arrive, and the three duelists present their Puzzle Cards in exchange for a Battle City ID card.

GUESS WHO MADE HIMSELF FINALIST 0001? I’m also willing to bet these TOs were under strict instruction that Yugi/Yami gets to be 0002 as well. 

Malik sneaks out and back around to enter as ~Namu~ complete with Reason Why They Didn’t Kidnap Me

“The only POSSIBLE motive for kidnapping!”

Jounouchi’s halfway through puzzling out that Namu’s actions don’t make sense and line up too coincidentally with the move the Ghouls made but…

… the thought fizzles out in the inhospitable environment that is Jounouchi’s brain.

Yugi is delighted to meet any new friend, no matter how suspicious.

“Ha ha, yes, I personally used dark magic, kidnappings, brainwashings, and the tireless toil of my personal slave/brother. You?”

“Angry gay ghost living in my necklace.”

They’re distracted by the arrival of Ryou “Shouldn’t You Be In The Hospital” Bakura and his surprising decision to show up to a duel tournament with a Duel Disk, prompting a chorus of “Why do you have a Duel Disk, Ryou?”

“No I was going to fucking brush my teeth with it.”

pictured: group of duel-obsessed teenagers react to duel-obsessed teenager declaring intention to duel

I mean, I know, in OUR universe, dragging yourself from being in critical arm-stabbery in the hospital to the tournament finals over like, a two-hour period, is completely unreasonable and very shocking and suspicious. But LITERALLY ANY OF THESE PEOPLE would claw themselves out of a hospital bed for the sake of a card game so I find their shock, frankly, appallingly hypocritical.

honestly I just screencapped this for his ADORABLE FACE

(he’s worried Yami Bakura is back)

Then Rishid sneaks back around to enter as Malik. I like to imagine he psyched himself up for this, this critically important moment, this one chance to pull off a flawless deceit, all their scrutiny, all their suspicion will be no match for his meticulously-prepared introduction and well-rehearsed answers to any possible question they might have that might reveal him as an imposter…

“… yes.”

(Mokuba is copying Nii-sama’s bad-boy attitude!! CUTENESSSSSS)

“Also, uh, welcome to the tournament finals.”

Now that the only two people Kaiba cares about have arrived - Yugi/Yami and the-person-he-thinks-is-Malik - it’s time to reveal that the tournament finals will not, in fact, be held in a half-built stadium…

LOOK AT MOKUBA’S FACE also Kaiba isn’t even looking up, he’s playing like he’s too cool to think blimps are cool even though the blimp was 100% his idea

Actually maybe it was Mokuba’s idea, Mokuba COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED and Kaiba even lets him introduce it…

… he may also have let him name it. “BATTLE SHIP! GET IT, NII-SAMA? GET IT? BATTLE! SHIP! BATTLESHIP! BATTLE CITY AIRSHIP! GET IT? BATTLE SHIP!”

Yugi is delightfully optimistic about the whole affair

“After all, it’s not like the leader of the Ghouls, the known murderer, bomb aficionado and probable sociopath, capable of brainwashing even the staunchest of my allies into attempts against my life, will ALSO be in the sky on the same flimsy gondola tethered to an enormous flammable balloon!”

Oh and then we go through this again #soDuelistKingdom

“For that matter, neither do you. Or the pilot. Or the doctors we’ll inevitably need when the comas start setting in.”

And Kaiba’s even nice and backs Mokuba’s call.

pictured: Kaiba being nice

Kaiba tells the TOs it’s time to set off. They ask if they should wait for the last duelist to arrive. Kaiba literally couldn’t care less once Yugi/Yami and the-person-he-thinks-is-Malik are on board and in possession of their God Cards. Luckily, the last person is a ~mysterious woman~ who has ~preternaturally perfect timing~ #whocoulditbe so the TOs don’t have to figure out who gets a bye if there’s only 7 finalists.

So off we go!

(some really cute music plays as they take off, I wanted to give you all the experience of the cute music)

Once in the air, everyone loses their goddamn minds.

BITCH HE’S ON A MOTHERFUCKIN AIRSHIP I’M ONLY BE IMPRESSED IF HE EXITS THE GODDAMN VEHICLE TO DUEL jfc

Kaiba’s giant inflated orb filled with hot air … can barely fit on his blimp, he’s so pleased with himself. Although I think the sleep-deprivation might be getting to him, he looks VERY TIRED.

(Yugi: I somehow expected better from you, Seto.)

Seto stops in front of Yugi and look who immediately makes his first appearance in a few episodes:

someone has a crush

someone else has a crush too  I’m just saying  teenage boy with a crush  overblown poetry  that whole connection there

Then for once, the writers actually manage to pull a genuinely moving scene with Shizuka and Jounouchi out of somewhere, instead of just having them repeatedly declare meaningless platitudes about their respective courageousness.

</3 #thisBplotdeservedbetter

I mean, Jounouchi does IMMEDIATELY start thinking about Yugi again, and the moment doesn’t last long, but still!

Prrrrrrrobably because you left the door wide open and they’re your friends?

Anyway, you’ll need friends over to share your unreasonably large stockpile of “NAXIM” mouthwash, speckled sandwiches, and cheese from Serbia and Montenegro!

  • me: *walks into an audition
  • me: Hi I'm Amanda I'll be doing a monologue for you today
  • me: It's the summer of 2001; Joe meets Patrick and he's like "Yo, I know about music." and Patrick's like "Yo, I know more about music."
  • "That's impossible..Do you want to start a band?" and Patrick's like "Yeah that's cool." and then he's like "Yo this is a bookstore this is not a music store."
  • And then they met at Patrick's house. So Patrick is wearing shorts, and socks, and a hat. Patrick is playing drums for some f***ing reason, and Pete's there for some reason. And they start playing together, and they're like "Oh, let's play some covers from some other bands."
  • It was like Green Day, and f**in' Misfits, and f***in' Ramones. Pete said to Joe, "Yo, we gotta change this s** up. Yo we've played all these bands, let's play some s*** from Fall Out Boy."
  • And so Pete and Patrick are like "Yo, that's dope, but we need a f***in' drummer."
  • Because Patrick's playing drums, and he's a singer. Patrick's like "Yo, I got a soul voice." , and they're like "Wait how do you have a soul voice?" And he's like "Yo, watch this: YeEEEEEEEEEEeeeeAAAAAHHHHhaaaHHHEEaaH!"
  • And they're like "Oh my God, that sounds like soul." So they put it in a song, and it was like "WHERE IS YOUR BOY TONIIIIiIIIIIiiiiIIIIiiiiiiiiGHT?"
  • And they're like "Yo, that's f***ing perfect, this is Fall Out Boy."
  • And they made records like Evening Out with Your Ex-Girlfriend. Evening Out With Your Ex-Girlfriend, everybody loves it.
  • "It's called Evening Out With Your Girlfriend."
  • With your ex-girlfriend. It's called Evening Out With Your EX-Girlfriend. It's called Eating Out Your Girlfriend, and it's real and it doesn't matter.
  • And Pete talked to Patrick and Joe, and he was like "Yo, what the Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu**? Yo, this is gonna be f***in' dooooooope!"
  • So they made a record, and it was called Take This To Your Grave. They made it without a drummer, and they had like three-four drummers come in. The four drummer they had come in were like Josh Freese, Neil Pert, the dude from Toto, the fourth one was like the guy from like Papa Roach or something, and they're like "Yo, we need Andy Hurley. Take This To Your Grave. F***in' record it."
  • And he did it, and he killed it, and he was like "bigidalilililililila, pshhh." Killin' the skins, tapping the skins, tapping the rim, playin' the s***, killin' these b****es, rapping it out.
  • You're getting a f**ing tattoo right now, what the f** is going on?
  • We should get signed by Fueled By Ramen, 'cause these guys know what the f*** is going on.
  • And they were like "Yo, if you can make our scene any bigger than it is, which is not f***in' hard, we will sign you guys."
  • Pete was like "Yo, we got this record that f***in' dooooooope, dude it's called Take This To Your Grave, it's called From under The Cork Tree, and it's gonna be f***in' huge."
  • And Patrick's like "I gotta keep it real, I gotta keep it artistic, these are three songs that are gonna make the album, and it's called [BURP] Thanks For The Memories, 20 Dollar Nosebleed, Sugar We're Goin' Down."
  • And they made this record that was f***in' dope, and it f***in' hit on the charts like one, two, three, three, two, one, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, ten to ONE. From Under The Cork Tree sold like four million records- ten million records, fifteen million records!
  • And Brendon Urie had nothing to do with the entire record. And Patrick's like "That's GOOOooooOOOOD!" Pete was like "Yo, f*** you, I can do whatever I want!"
  • Joe was like "Yeah, it's cool man, whatever, I don't give a s***." And then Andy was like "Eh, cool."
  • And Pete was like "Make-up is f***in' great for a guy. Because it makes a guy look beautiful, which a lot of times, a guy is not beautiful, and I wanna change that. I wanna make sure that everyone thinks that guys are beautiful."
  • SHUT THE F*** UP!
  • Oh f*** alright, alright.
  • Pete was like "Oh my God, I'm so embarrassed about this dick pic." And then I saw the dick pic, and was like "Ah, it's not bad."
  • It's not a bad dick, let's be real.
  • We made Rolling Stone one issue before Fall Out Boy. And Fall Out Boy made the issue right after us and they were so pissed, they were like "Yo f*** you guys!" They're like "Yo, Panic! has the f**in' cover for Rolling Stone yo, f** these dudes, we're gonna go miles above, we're gonna hit every f***in' continent there is known to man."
  • But they didn't, they missed a second of time. Apparently, they were like "Oh s***, we got every continent." And they didn't actually hit it. Dude, and Pete was like "WHAT THE F***? 'Oh it's like you didn't f**in' make the continent.,' it's like F** YOU!"
  • So From Under The Cork Tree happens, we f***in' have like three-four years of awesomeness. Like people are comin' on themselves 'cause it's so big.
  • Alright so Fall Out Boy was like-
  • So Patrick was like "Yo, we're gonna name these records From Under The Cork Tree and From Infinity On High ."
  • Pete was like "Folie a Deux means the theatric of two."
  • "The madness of two."
  • Oh, sorry, I'm sorry.
  • Fall Out Boy was like "Yo, we gotta take a break." Meaning, Pete was like "Yo, we gotta take a break, bro." and Patrick's like "I need time for my music. UHUHUHUHUH."
  • And Joe's like "Yo, I need time to find the f***in' art dude, I gotta find some me-metal."
  • And Andy's like "I'm just gonna play with some f***in' metal bands."
  • And they're like "Alright, this break's been like three years long-two years long-three years long-three and a half? We gotta f***in' come back, man, we gotta come back strong."
  • You took my beer away, what the f***?
  • "No, you poured it all over yourself."
  • "Yeah, you poured it on yourself, man, here."
  • "We gotta make this s*** legit, it's gonna be f**in' dope, it's gonna go f***in' sky high. We're gonna make a f***in' record that sails the skies. We're gonna call this record Save Rock And Roll."
  • So they made Alone Together, Light 'Em Up, Alone Together, Phoenix, and everybody's like "What the f***? You're working with this guy who f***in' recorded Avril Lavigne and P!nk."
  • Is this pu-what the f*** is on my shirt, did I puke myself? Oh God.
  • Pete was like "Yo, we're gonna end up on a tour with Panic! At The Disco and Twenty Pilots."
  • And that's all, and that's all that matters.And that's just how the f***in' story goes.
It's Time to Abandon Ship: Why I moved on from Stelena & Klaroline and jumped aboard Steroline

I just wanted to put this out there in anticipation of Steroline getting together, and to help drown out all the Steroline hate that’s been thrown around lately. Besides, I know I’m not the only ex-Stelena and ex-Klaroline shipper out there who came to see the light.

Erik Plays Seduce Me
  • [Mr. Anderson drops MC off at the Mansion]
  • Erik: I simply cannot get over how much he looks like James.
  • Mika: It's way more obvious in this artist's style, okay!?
  • Erik: *laughing* The fact that you saw Raestrao for the first time and did not immediately think of your father, though!?
  • Mika: *pushes his face away, smiling* Just get inside the house. I can hear the plot waiting for you.
  • . . .
  • Erik: My favorite thing about this particular scene, I must say, is the image of you standing before us while we bleed to death on the floor, shouting at us for answers as though we are all about to pop up and answer.
  • Mika: Well...!
  • . . .
  • Erik: Ah. It would seem that even whilst missing half his blood-weight, Sam has the strength to shoot right off the ground and force himself upon a stranger.
  • Mika: ... I didn't notice that before. There really wasn't a transition was there?
  • Erik: I could have missed it but I think I like this better. Sam face-down, and suddenly! He is on his feet before you. He doesn't formally stand, he doesn't run, he just.... transitions from one position to the next.
  • Mika: Watch him swoows right in.
  • Erik: *chokes-!!*
  • . . .
  • Erik: ... We are popping up as though nothing has happened. Mika, dear... did-did I miss something?
  • Mika: Nope.
  • Erik: We are /bleeding/ to death, are we not!? Why are we all now standing about, making idle conversation as though our feet and clothes are not seeping with blood?
  • Mika: I have no clue.
  • Erik: This isn't even what happened. Did the creators forget that we were dying just now?
  • Mika: Let's not go there, Erik.
  • Erik: Ugh. Very well then.
  • . . .
  • Erik: I certainly didn't sound like this when we fir--
  • Mika: Yes you did.
  • Erik: *scoffs* Mika, my dear, you hurt me!
  • Mika: You think I'm kidding? When you first got here you were calling me things like My Princess, Gorgeous, My Sweet, Lovely Lady... you, a complete stranger, to me. Who then forced me to kiss him by manipulating my will.
  • Erik: But- I would never hurt you!
  • Mika: Didn't know that at the time. Someone talking about me like I'm his when I don't know him, who has the ability to make me do almost anything he wants, is kinda terrifying.
  • Erik: That... oh...
  • Erik: ... Mika I'm so sorry.
  • Mika: Hey, water under the bridge. You've learned since then. I still love you.
  • Erik: ... *smiles*
