This is the basest sentimentality. This is a child at prayer... PATHETIC! You lie and kill in the service of liars and killers. You pretend to be separate, to have your own code. Something that makes up for the horrors. But they are a part of you, and they will never go away!... I won't touch Bakugou, not until I make him kill you!
  • Midoriya: -eyes wide, face turning fearful-
  • Shigaraki: -snarling- Slowly, intimately, in every way he knows you fear! And then he'll wake just long enough to see his good work, and when he screams, I'll split his skull! This is MY bargain, you mewling quim!

  • Shigaraki: -smirking wickedly-
  • Midoriya: -crying intensely- You're a monster!

anonymous asked:

Hey, I just finished the tog series and I don't understand why lorcan betrayed aelin? Why did he summon maeve? I thought he was falling in love with elide so I don't get why he would do that and also why he was devastated when maeve broke the blood oath. Didn't he say he wanted to go to perranth with elide?

The answer to your first question or two is simple, while the last one is more complicated.

To answer why he betrayed Aelin or summoned Maeve, can be long or short. The short answer was that he actually had no loyalty to Aelin and he was trying to protect Elide.

The longer answer is that when he summoned Maeve, it was at a point in time where he thought that there was a ship full of enemies come to kill/capture them. They had just used all of their power fightings so they would have absolutely no chance of succeeding. Lorcan has been abused for the past 100 years plus some, in these years the relationships he has had have been surface level or based around survival.

Elide is the first individual to ever really mean something to him or show him affection, probably in his whole life

. His being is centered around that.

All he has ever tried to do is protect and fight for himself, those are really the only skills and emotional capacity he has developed. So when he began caring for Elide, Gaverielsthose transferred onto her.



Now, we have seen that he does display loyalty to the cadre. This is rare and hard to come by, but we see it when he ran to help Aedion in QoS simply because he was Gavriel’s son. These loyalties come from years of surviving abuse and trauma together, though that does not change that Lorcan never developed or had a loving relationship (once or twice if at all), but he did respect this cold, but loyal, survival kinship with the cadre. Calling Maeve would not endanger them since they were all sworn to her anyway besides Rowan. As for Rowan, we see that Lorcan felt a deep betrayal at Rowan leaving with Aelin. Rowan was the closest thing Lorcan had to an actual friend, he actually felt close and connected to him over all the other cadre members. This was because Lorcan is almost, if not as, powerful as Rowan so they were often sent on missions for months together. Rowan was the closest thing he ever had to family, a brother. And Rowan just left Lorcan with Maeve, without so much as a backward glance. Before, Rowan was grief stricken and cold like Lorcan. He felt comradery to him. Then Rowan left him to become more emotional, feeling, and to have a court, a family, with other people. This genuinely was both a physical, relational, and emotional betrayal of sorts for Lorcan. While I certainly do not blame Rowan or think he should not have done anything differently, that does not mean we wouldn’t expect Lorcan to react this way. We often see this with people in real life. Trauma victims or abusive victims, when someone else gets out or moves on with their life, while we would hope that most would be happy for the individual, others might feel a sense of abandonment.

And Lorcan, cold and abused, had no moral reason for serving Maeve. She was just a way to achieve status, a way to not be the prey in life and instead be the hunter. Lorcan operates on a kill or be killed mentality, as all his life experience has told him to. It was a survival decision to join Maeve. He says himself, he cares not about the actual battles or why they are doing the things they do, he is so depressed and traumatized that he simply just exists. So, he could care less personally about Aelin and the goodness she represents. He has no personal ties to her, he has only talked to her maybe three times in his life.He only knows himself and Elide when it comes to base instinct. She is the first person to move into his circle of survival, the first time he really has an active role in someone else’s fate. She breached those walls. So when he thought they were under attack, his first instinct and thought are to try to find some way to save himself, and the first person he has come to really care about or have. He barely even thought, he just reacted on a base survival need. He might have paused if this resulted in the death of his cadre, but they were on the same side as him. And while I do not think he wished any harm particularly to Aelin, Rowan, and their court, he was not going to choose them over himself and Elide, nor the cadre, who are his brothers in arms of sorts. 


As for why he was devastated that Maeve cut the bond, there is a long list of complicated emotions he was probably feeling. One is simply shame. The culture in throne of glass is very different from where I live or where most people live in today’s world. It is very much based on visible status, etiquette, titles, and honor.  Maeve cut his blood oath in the most dishonorable way she could think of. Lorcan was a street bastard, the lowest you could get in society. The main reason he even took the blood oath was so that he could have a name so he could be something in his world and society. Now, not only has he returned to nothing after years of abuse and torture and trauma, but he also has added dishonor. He basically just became an outcast homeless person.
And the abuse. That I think is the primary reason he reacted the way he did. For 100s of years, Maeve has been in his mind, perverted his actions, forced him to do and endure terrible things. basically ruled his entire existence. He can barely remember the world without Maeve. It’s the same concept you see when sex trafficking victims who have been rescued try to return to their captors, why domestic violence victims lie to law enforcement and say they aren’t being abused, why kidnapped victims will fight and defend their captors against law enforcement trying to rescue them. Brainwashing, Stockholm syndrome, confusing their identity, making their abuse and their captors become essential to their survival, whatever you want to call it. HIs brain, his emotions, who he is is so confused and traumatized; everything he was is wrapped up in and depended upon Maeve. He had nothing and no one before her, this way of life was his only known reality. He does not know what or who he is without it. And when Maeve displayed displeasure and anger, the only way his mind knew how to react was to try to please her, beg forgiveness, and the fear of losing the only life and ways he understands caused him to try to hold onto that as much as possible.

It is very hard to understand or relate to unless you have gone through it yourself or know someone who has. And that’s okay, that’s understandable. Trauma and abuse are horrible things and are very hard to overcome. To anyone who may not be aware of why he would do this, it seems pathetic and confusing. 

I hope these answered your questions. 

And to anyone out there who may be going through abuse or have been traumatized, know that there is help out there and that it is not hopeless. I cannot imagine all you are going through, but there are people out there who have been through it as well. I escaped emotional abuse in high school, and life has gotten significantly better. Attatched are some resources for the domestic abuse hotline, suicide hotline, trauma resources, and people can feel free to reblog more.

This maybe is a really unpopular opinion, but I don't like what they are trying to do with the legend of korra comics. It was bad enough that they pretended to be inclusive when they make korrasami canon when it was the fandom who did all the work, they didn't care to give them a properly development because they knew the power of the fandom and now they know that the fandom is still on tumblr and they are writting fan fiction in order to sell the comics. I don't like when people use my +

sexuality to appear to be inclusive, they are not the first one to try it and sadly they won’t be the last.

I’m going to start off by saying that I think you’re preaching to the wrong audience here friend. I’ve always been aggressively pro-Korrasami and pro-Bryke and I’m one of those people who will take LGBT representation in whatever form its given to me (except for like…Irredeemable villains and obviously token characters who are there for one ep and then gone *coughRedKansascough*. 

I am apologetically a slut for queer rep, but I like to think I’m still aware and critical of representation that’s obviously been half-assed, and I have never felt that way with Korrasami.

That said, just because I don’t feel that way doesn’t mean I don’t think your feelings are extremely valid. I can see how you and others might feel a little taken advantage of with this whole influx of LGBT inclusive material in the Korra comics when, in your eyes, they didn’t try very hard to do so in the show. From that perspective it seems like an attempt to cash in on their queer fans. 

The way I’ve always looked at it, though, is that they have more freedom in the comics to do what they’ve always wanted to do (”Always” meaning since the developing stages of Book 3 when Korrasami became a real possibility). Nickelodeon is still a children’s network and, much as it hurts to admit, we as people are still largely considered “taboo” for the kiddies. Abuse, adultery, and murder-suicides are cool for them to see tho. Many kids shows today have begun to show more LGBT characters, so we seem to be moving away from that mindset. 

But Korrasami was a thing in 2013-2014, before gay marriage was even legalized country-wide. Censors were a real problem in showing LGBT content on networks like Nick, Disney, and CN. We already know from Bryke (or one of them, can’t remember which though lol) that Nick censored a kiss in the finale. It stands to reason then, that Nick was probably fairly strict when it came to developing Korrasami. The fact that they got what they got approved (Like the Hug n’ Blush, which was probably the most forward moment outside of the finale) still amazes me tbh. I believe that they’ve begun to include more LGBT material in the comics due to a lack of censors and more creative freedom, not to attract more readers, though I’m sure that’s definitely a bonus. (Young Justice did something similar in their tie-in comics with Marie Logan by the way, only LoK did it better by not killing off the Lesbian 2 seconds after her reveal) 

I do take issue with your insistence that the fandom did all the work, however. Contrary to popular belief we didn’t just pull Korrasami out of our ass based on breadcrumbs (And neither do Bumbleby fans or SQ fans, or most other fans of f/f ships but that’s another discussion for another day). Korrasami was so prominent in the fandom because of what they were doing on the show, not the other way around. Did fandom play a part? Of course, I’m sure we helped to plant the seeds and I’m sure the OG and most diehard Korrasamis would have found something in the show to feed into their ship with or without the writing team backing them up. 

But I was there from the start, and I watched the Korrasami fandom grow exponentially in Books 3 and 4, which is when Bryke have said they started working hints and moments in. It’s not a coincidence that the ship drew more support in after the writing started leading in that direction and, I’ve come to realize, it’s not a coincidence that I myself started shipping Korrasami in book 3 either. Bryke and the crew fought hard for Korrasami to become a reality and I truly believe they did their best with the restrictions they were given.

Really, whether you see Korrasami (and all the other LGBT things they included in the comics) as taking advantage of their queer audience or a genuine attempt to be inclusive is dependent on whether or not you’re willing to give the crew the benefit of the doubt. I am, but if you’re an LGBT fan who feels differently then that’s your right and I can’t question it or judge you for it. 

At the end of the day though, when I think of all those finale reactions that show queer fans jumping for joy or crying actual tears because of Korrasami, or see posts with stills from Turf Wars talking about how much this means to them, I find I really don’t give a damn about their intentions. What matters is the impact, and Legend of Korra’s impact on LGBT fans cannot be denied.

A hundred years, a hundred worlds, a hundred stories. The seventy-first starts off poorly (though not nearly as poorly as some) and honesty, like violence, can be brutal.

Taako is fed up. Magnus feels guilty. Lup lashes out. Merle saves the day.


Taako woke up to a bucket of cold water in the face. He yelped comically, sputtered, and spat.

That’s when he realized his hands were bound – no, hands and feet both – to a metal chair, in a dank stonework room he’d never seen before. There was no light, but since he was an elf it didn’t matter; he could see the four people standing in front of him just fine.

He shook his head roughly, water flicking from his bangs. Think, stupid, think. Last thing he remembered was getting tipsy in a particularly boisterous bar. He was doing reconnaissance, which was a fancy word for scoping the nightlife in the capital city of whatever fucking world they’d landed on this time. Hylia? Hyperborea? Who cares. They’d all be so much interplanar chum in a year’s time if they didn’t find the Light.

Stop. Tangent. Refocus. He was in a bar. The booze had caught up to him. He’d gone to the bathroom. Then… fuzzy. He’d blacked out, or got a sack thrown over his head, or something. He vaguely remembered a sharp pain in his head? Now he was here.

So, unless that handsome tiefling he’d been chatting up was into some seriously kinky shit…

“I hope you’re fucking happy,” Taako said to the group of four. “My hair is ruined.”

One of them, a big, broad-shouldered type with a shaved head, walked up and punched him in the mouth. A short, sharp strike, clearly pulled, and it still had Taako seeing stars. He tasted blood, copper in the back of his throat.

“Who are you?” one of the other three asked in an accented voice. Probably the leader? Shorter, much shorter, and leaner than his big bruiser buddy. No horns, but a tail. Part tiefling, maybe.

Taako shook his head to clear it. “I’m Taako,” he said. “Y'know, from TV?”

The big man punched Taako across the forehead, this time with his other hand. That one made Taako dizzy.

“Where are you from?” the short one asked.

Taako’s head lolled on his shoulders. He shrugged and breathed out a laugh. “I mean, where are any of us from, really? When you think about it–”

The big one hit him again, clean in the side of his head. Taako’s ears rang. He didn’t hear the next question the short one asked. Not that it mattered. Like he was going to tell them anything. Whoever the hell they were. They’d probably kill him, of course, which would suck. But it was a temporary problem at best, and as strong as his self-preservation instinct was, Taako’s spite was, at this point, far, far stronger.

He’d very much like not to die, though. So he’d have to escape. Problem: he was still a bit hazy from the drinks. Or maybe they’d dosed him at some point. It was hard to focus, and he couldn’t even cast a cantrip. He didn’t carry anything like a weapon on him, and if he did, they’d have taken it anyway. Times like this he really wished he had a way to contact the ship. Hopefully Lup would get worried and come looking for him before these sons of bitches finished their Q&A sesh.

After he took too long to answer, the big man hit him again, a short jab to the nose that didn’t hurt nearly as much as the last couple. Taako laughed out loud, and it must have looked downright ghoulish, because he saw the big one tense uncomfortably. Taako rolled his head in his direction and spit on the floor between them.

“Look, bub,” he said with a smile. His voice sounded dull and muffled in his ears, like a recording played in another room. “You’re gonna have to hit a whole lot harder than that–”

The next hit nearly knocked him out clean. It certainly loosened a tooth. Cool, now even if didn’t die, he’d have to go an entire year without an incisor. Fun day he was having.

The Evolution of LGBTQ+ Representation in LIWs

In The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, back in 2013, there was exactly one queer character. He was a side character with an offscreen love interest created solely so that people wouldn’t ship him with Lizzie at that pivotal point in the story.

2014 was when LIWs really took off, and it was also when there were the greatest differences in LGBTQ+ representation (though no one was very good at it yet). Series like Emma Approved and Green Gables Fables (we’re talking Season One here) had none. Other series, like From Mansfield With Love, made a side character who didn’t have a love interest be gay. So far, no one was really gender-bending or reimagining anything to make it gayer.

But Shakespeare is about the gayest off-copyright source material there is, so it was pretty much impossible to correctly adapt Shakespeare and make it end up totally straight.

From our 2017 standpoint, NMTD looks pretty heterosexual, but it was actually about as queer as any LIW can be without departing from the source material (though we’ll get to Twelfth Grade a little later on). Hero’s moms, though absent, are accepted by everyone, as is Balthazar, who is of course very gay despite never using that word in NMTD (The Candle Wasters really don’t like actually saying things, do they?). But it was Pedro’s coming out that really changed the tides. Goodbye queerbaiting, hello to the possibility of onscreen characters entering into non-heterosexual relationships.

2015 was a transition year in many ways. It was no longer acceptable to make an LIW without some form of queer representation, but the methods were all over the place. Some LIWs put a queer pairing center stage – Pedrazar being the prime example, however you feel about LLL – while most series started to create queer side pairings, either through gender-bending or through creating new arcs for the characters. A few examples of this from 2015 would be George Squared from Call Me Katie, Smarling from The New Adventures of Peter and Wendy, and Jamie and Isabella from Northbound. Of course, some LIWs still did LBD-style representation – The Misselthwaite Archives comes to mind – but it was now because the creators wanted queer representation and not because they wanted to avert certain het ships.

Then 2016 happened. We, the viewers, were no longer willing to tolerate entirely cishet shows. 2016 saw the rise of trans and genderqueer LIW characters at long last – Puck in Bright Summer Night and Serena in The Adventures of Serena Berg being the prime examples – as well as multiple characters on the ace spectrum. And with the rise of young, bisexual webseries creators, the number of bisexual characters skyrocketed.

So let’s talk about Twelfth Grade for a minute. I won’t lie and call this series the gayest thing I’ve ever seen, but it is probably the biest. All three of the leads are bisexual, and no one is straight. Literally no one. And no matter who you shipped, it was likely a possibility if not a reality. Again, this was made possible by the source material, which is just about the biest thing ever written, and by the new LIW atmosphere, which was demanding – and getting – the queer representation that just doesn’t exist anywhere else.

Gender-bending skyrocketed in 2016, both with side characters and with mains. And now, in 2017, cishet characters are starting to be the minority. The Emma Agenda and Middlemarch: The Series, my two favorite currently-airing LIWs, have both gender-bent logically and competently all over the place in order to keep canon mostly intact while also making it much, much more diverse. Very few current LIW ships are m/f, and of those, even fewer characters are completely heterosexual.

We’ve come a long way since the days of LBD. and we couldn’t have gotten here without a lot of hard work and thinking and the bravery to tell stories the way we wanted them told. I’m not saying heterosexuality should vanish from LIWs, but I think that the direction we’ve come in is the right one. When a series like NLTS or MMTS gives the same amount of drama to queer pairings as to straight ones, when characters like Roxanne Roberts or Bathsheba Everdeen struggle with their identities in relatable ways, it normalizes every part of the human experience and continues to make LIWs the most representative form of media I know.

While I know I skipped a lot of important moments and didn’t mention several very diverse series, I used examples that I hope most people will be familiar with and that won’t be too spoilery. 

LIW creators: keep doing what you’re doing. It is noticed and appreciated. Thank you. 

naira-a  asked:

AHHHHHH my Taejin heart! I remember reading it somewhere but I wasn't sure if it was a 100% true! On the anniversary conference I remembered Taehyung explaining that whenever he was cleaning out his room, he gave the things he didn't want to the other members and then I remember him mentioning that he left something for Jin this morning on his bed but I had no idea it was also referring to that! OHMYGOSH I want a picture of a sleeping Taejin in Jin's bed!

Yep it’s 1000% true, Taejin sleep together!

So here is a second master post on this fascinating theme.

I was doing some research and Jin said like tons of times that Taehyung sleeps on his bed every night.

Here is a vintage one, Jin said V slept on his bed since the early days (first dorm era)! He said V always picked the bed next to his in order to come to Jin’s bed during his sleep… and my heart just cannot with the mental picture of little V crawling into Jinnie’s bed at night using his slumber as an excuse to sleep with his crush!

Notice that Jin used the word ALWAYS, and now in 2017, years later he still says that V “lives” in his bed. So I think there is no doubt Jin and V want us to know they still sleep together. And now there is no ‘beds next to each other’ excuse since Jin has his own cute pink room with a comfy double bed! 

On Hello Counselor, just now in 2017 Jin also said Tae keeps invading his tiny bed to sleep! LoL the way he ‘scolded’ him was too cute cause if he really wanted Taehyung to stop sleeping with him, he’d probably would have done something years ago. 

Now the Taejin national tv rant is just humorous Jin making sure everyone understands he and V are two adult men that sleep together.

And the way Jin said his bed is tiny and it gets uncomfortable for two men to share it just gives me war flashbacks of all Taejin hugs and Jin on top of V on that tiny couch in Japan…

Jin also said this…

And here is the Japanese interview of Jin saying he should hit V in the bootie for coming to his bed every night…naughty! 

War flashbacks again…

And here is my two cents, it’s fine, everybody in the band is really close and they are all bros and soulmates and everybody love each other. But ya know Taejin is just something else entirely. You can say they are just joking but really? For years an years saying they sleep together? 

Why would two adult men sleep on the same bed for years? Why would Tae go to Jin’s bedroom everynight for years? Why choose Jin to sleep with? If he is closer to Jimin and JK, if those are the V ships the band pushes publicly why is Jin the one he keeps doing 'romantic’ things with? And I’m sorry but the mother and son bond the fandom applies to Taejin just don’t do justice to the affection both Jin and Tae are trying so hard to openly display. 

Everybody in the band is super close but somehow Taejin is the only pair in the band saying they sleep together. One can say perhaps their friendship is too strong and its natural for two adult men to be brotherly close to each other enough to sleep in the same bed for years so it is open to one’s personal interpretation. 

But for me everything they have been doing (V’s jealousy, how they behave, couple clothes, holding hands when they don’t see cameras, sleeping together, answering the same things, secret dates alone, how V sees no one else when Jin is around, the way they look at each other and even how the band behaves around them…) imply they are together and don’t really care to hide it.

A cute one of the many many Taejin moments on 2017 Japan Fan Meeting…

And oh yes, please we need to see them on Jin’s tiny bed…'sleeping’ or not!

Lots of love, tks for the ask and Taejin kisses.

will you write another The Last Jedi kylux drabble? please!! any situation!

Hux’s nerves are like steel when he’s at the helm of the Finalizer during a battle, gazing over his troops and his ships like he’s the master of the board, watching his strategy unfold.

Usually, his nerve is held. Usually, his belief in their victory is unwavering.

But today is not a usual battle. The enemies that Kylo Ren and his formidable TIE silencer face are not usually his own mother.

Hux’s cold gaze follows Kylo’s path as best as he can, heart fluttering every time the ship spins and comes too close to being shot down. The TIE approaches the grandest of the enemy ships and no defending X-Wings are nearby to protect their General from Kylo’s shot.

A shot that never comes.

“Come on, Ren,” Hux whispers through gritted teeth, imagining Kylo sat in his cockpit and hesitating. They can’t afford hesitation, not now.

“General!” A shout comes from behind Hux, from one of his officers. “Enemy reinforcements dropped out of hyperspace! Orders?”

Hux’s mouth falls agape to give his orders but he feels something cold in his chest that keeps him silent and takes his gaze away from his officer and back out into the vastness of the battle, eyes searching for the one thing he prays he never has to lose.

“Ren.” The word is a gasp on Hux’s lips as all colour drains from his face and the last of his hold on his nerves slips.

“Orders, General!”

The Finalizer shakes then as a boom sounds from the lower decks, and suddenly everything in Hux’s world is in panic.

“Retreat,” he says, hating himself already for using that blasted word. “Get our TIE’s back and make the jump to hyperspace, regroup with the fleet. I won’t lose anymore men today.”

The officer sends the order out to all of the Order’s TIE’s and they begin to pull back, though more are lost against the fresh onslaught of Resistance firepower. Bright red lasers fly past the Finalizer’s viewports as their TIE’s flock back into their hangar bay and Hux drops all his tension when he sees Kylo’s distinct fighter fly by and dock safely.

“Hyperspace, now!” Hux barks as he leaves the bridge in a hurry, breaking out into a run in complete desperation to see what sort of state his Knight is in.

The hangar is in chaos when he arrives down there. Medics bustle about, pulling wounded pilots from their ships and pushing stretchers off to the medical wing but Hux passes them without concern. He has to find Kylo, he has to see that he’s alright–

He spots him then a little way across the hangar, staggering out of his TIE as though he’s got no strength in his legs, his cheeks lacking any sort of colour but his eyes hold all the rage and sadness that Kylo has ever felt, setting the calm hazel of his soft eyes into black.

Hux follows him without caution, pushing past medics to get to Kylo before he locks himself away to deal with whatever he’s just experienced.

“Ren,” Hux calls, struggling to match Kylo’s long strides. “Ren!”

Kylo seemingly slows when he hears Hux’s voice and his shoulders relax only slightly yet his fists remain clenched, back still turned.

“Leave me be,” Kylo growls but he stops in his tracks, and Hux knows that everything about Kylo’s body is telling him to come closer, to not leave him alone.

“Never,” Hux steps around Kylo to face him, seeing angry tear stains on his pale cheeks, wetting the healing bacta patch on his face. “What happened, Ren? Breathe. Just breathe.”

Kylo swallows hard, lips pouring, but he shakes his head. He’d gone out into the battle with a fresh face and a fiery stance, kissing Hux with vigour and promising to bring him the final victory.

The man before Hux now is a shadow of who he was earlier. This isn’t Ren, fearless warrior and berserker fighter. This is Ren, wounded boy and lonely soul.

“I-I couldn’t do it,” Kylo says, and Hux takes hold of his arms in a futile attempt to steady him. “She was on that ship. She felt me, she knew I was there, I know she did–and I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t kill her, Hux. I’m sorry, I’ve failed you.”

Hux can almost feel Kylo’s distress radiating from him. Raw, untamed power with so much descriptive potential turned inwards into self-hatred and disappointment until Hux is worried that Kylo will suffer the same fate as Starkiller; collapse.

“Never, Kylo,” Hux leans in and tries to catch Kylo’s downcast gaze but he doesn’t look up. “You could never fail me.”

Kylo closes his eyes as more tears fall but Hux wipes stray ones away and presses his forehead against Kylo’s.

“Armitage–”

“Kylo. My Ren.”

They kiss softly, and Hux wishes he could steal Kylo’s sadness away from him and keep it, keep him safe. But Hux knows better than most that the past must die for the future to live. He reminds himself to tell Kylo that once he’s in a better state.

Maybe then, and only then, will Ben Solo truly die and Kylo Ren will become who he’s meant to be.

Their journey begins with the usual amount of pomp and ceremony expected for a trade ship.

It’s the Triskelion’s forty second voyage from the colder, northern channels of Bæyan to the warm waters of Coca-Machu, and the crew means to make it a good one. Nothing too dangerous—they’re going to actually try trading this time—and everything will go smoothly. Even the weather has been fair to them since they left Port Duke with the morning tide. Many of the crew had waved goodbye to the few friends they’d made over the years, and perhaps a few enemies too. Others were more than glad to leave the port as quickly as they did.

I think Destiel is the show's end game but they want it to be the very last thing. So they set up the story around season 8/9 because they didn't really know if they were gonna get picked up and they had to dial it back up when it continued. Now it started again during season 12 knowing the show is gonna end in the next couple of years for sure without it being cancelled. Maybe? Thoughts? Love your meta!

Hi! Love you too!

I weirdly had a conversation about this yesterday in private so I’ve managed to actually coalesce some thoughts about this… Lots of thoughts.

Seeing as I joined fandom in the end of season 9, I basically joined a fandom that had been pretty hurt by the spec that season 8 might have been endgame if the show was cancelled… Obviously we’re never going to get any sort of statement on it until after we know the definitive line on whatever else they were doing with Destiel after the point it matters, so it’s going to be small potatoes if it was or not. 

But I don’t particularly think that it actually WAS - and the different way Cas, and his and Dean’s relationship, was portrayed in season 8 immediately threw a whole bunch of fuel on the fire but it was shocking in a way that it was being given attention rather than specifically being romantic, and it’s hard to tell the two apart, especially when you’re looking in the subtext and seeing romantic stuff, which when you’re a starving shipper suddenly seems like a feast of both charged interaction AND the old subtext, which is suddenly slathered all over everything when Cas is a major part of Dean’s emotional arc for the first time (in a good way).

Here's a cracky idea--post movie fic where Peter has to deal with a bevy of new Ravager aunts and uncles: Stakar Ogord and his team. After all, Yondu may be gone, but his kid's still here, and what kind of friends would they be if they didn't look in on the boy every now and then?

At first Peter thought it was a coincidence that he and the Guardians kept running into Yondu’s old space pirate buddies all over the damn galaxy.

He’d met them after the funeral at a wild 3-day wake on Stakar’s ship (bigger than the Eclector, and painfully reminiscent of it). Peter’s hangover lasted even longer than the party, but he’d ended up having a much better time than he was expecting. Ravagers definitely knew how to party, but what Peter hadn’t seen coming was how much it helped to be around people who’d known Yondu even longer than he had … people who had loved him as much as Peter had. For the first time, he got to hear embarrassing stories about Yondu’s youth, got to know him through the eyes of people who had known him as an equal, rather than through the eyes of a scared Terran child.

… he’d liked Yondu’s friends, damn it, and there was a part of him that was angry all over again that he hadn’t gotten to know any of these people growing up. He couldn’t stop thinking about how different things might have been if Yondu had just talked to them, tried to explain …

Except, no: if Yondu hadn’t made the choices he’d made, been the person he was, then he would never have picked Peter up on Earth, and Peter would never have known any of these people anyway. And the idea of losing this life – the idea of never meeting Gamora, or Rocket, or Drax, or any of the others … never knowing any part of the galaxy outside of Missouri … never meeting Yondu … shredded something inside him.

It had been a very hard life in some ways, but it was his life.

So he got to know Yondu’s friends a little bit, and after the party broke up, Peter figured he’d never see any of them again.

But then they ran into Stakar on Knowhere, while they were fencing some artifacts recovered from the ruins of a nameless planet out near the Hub, and ended up having a few drinks with Stakar and Martinex for old time’s sake. And then there was that salvage job in the Crab Nebula, which also seemed to have gotten onto the radar of Aleta and her crew of terrifying warrior women, so they ended up cooperating with Aleta’s furies to get the derelict ship stripped down for scrap (it wasn’t like they could have fit it all into their cargo hold anyway). And Mainframe helped them out of a little jam involving a small mercenary fleet that they might have pissed off by snaking a job out from under them; she said she was just passing through anyway. And then Charlie-27 and Stakar were checking out the famous animal market on Murin-IV for some reason, which meant they were around to help Peter and company break out Rocket after he stupidly got himself captured as a zoo oddity –

… and wait a minute.

“Are you following us?” Peter demanded, the next statistically-unlikely time (two weeks later) when he ran into Stakar again, this time in a bar near the spaceport on a backwater ice planet while picking up parts after they’d had another skirmish with what was left of the mercenaries.

He was fully expecting Stakar to deny it, but instead the old pirate gave him a sideways grin and told the bartender to put Peter’s drinks on his tab. “You know,” Stakar said, swirling the bright-yellow drink around in his glass, “we’re putting the old crew back together – been pulling off a few jobs here and there.”

“I heard that,” Peter said cautiously. “If that’s an invitation – uh, not to shoot you down or anything, but –”

Stakar gave a sharp, hoarse laugh, and for an instant there was a hint of Yondu in the glint in his eyes, jabbing an unexpected pain under Peter’s ribs. “Not that we’d turn down the famous Star-Lord –” Peter wished he could figure out if he was being made fun of or not; there was a lot of Yondu in that, too. “– but I figure you’ve got your own thing going, and it’s working out for you just fine. Am I wrong?”

“You’re not wrong,” Peter admitted.

“But,” Stakar went on, jabbing a finger at him around the smudged glass, “that doesn’t mean we don’t have your back. We weren’t there when Yondu needed us, but we’re sure as hell gonna be there for his kid. You’re a Ravager, son. You ever get in trouble, all you gotta do is give us a call.”

Peter stared at him, wordless. Stakar reached out and lifted Peter’s chin with a fingertip, closing his mouth. “You better shut that thing or something’s gonna fly in. Especially in here.”

“Uh … yeah.” Groping for normality, Peter knocked back his entire drink in one gulp, and choked. Stuff tasted like it was 200-proof. Why the hell had he still not learned that drinking with Ravagers was usually a bad idea?

“Another?” Stakar asked, looking amused.

“Sure,” Peter gasped. At least the drink gave him an excuse for why his eyes were watering.

He had grown up thinking that he didn’t have any family at all. Now he was starting to entertain the strange, dizzying possibility that you could have more than one.

I DECIDED TO UNSTAN

I finally made this decision and I hope you all understand why I did it. I have been in a LOT of fandoms, including the 1d fandom which is full of drama, and I didn’t have the experience I had with this fandom. I always knew tv show fandoms were bad and extreme but GOD, this fandom is another thing. I’m sorry but let’s call things by their name. I have always liked Cole since I was a little girl, I always loved him so when I find out he was back to acting I knew I had to watch his show so I waited months for this show to premier and when it did I liked the pilot so I started stanning the show and believe me, if I knew it was gonna end like this I would haven’t done it. I hated the fandom since the very beginning, I received a lot of death threats and mean comments because I loved Cole and Jughead. I felt like shit but I didn’t want to leave the fandom because I wanted to support Cole, I wanted to be there for him so I stayed but I won’t anymore no matter how much I love Cole because tbh this pain is not worthy. I hate this fandom more than I like it and that sucks. I have met wonderful people here and I even met one of my best friends thanks to this fandom. I know there are people here that are good so you go, people. Keep being awesome. But I also have met the worst types of people here too. I wanted to give my followers a safe space, a blog without hate because I know those blogs barely exist in this fandom. I’m sorry. I can’t do this anymore. You want to know the truth about this fandom? There’s no river/dale fandom. There are characters and ships fandoms but not an actual river/dale fandom and that’s sad. The river/dale fandom will send you mean things because you love an actor (in my case Cole) and you love an irl ship. The fandom will hate you because you ship bug/head. The fandom will hate because you DONT ship bug/head. The fandom will make you feel like shit because you like var/chie and because you are getting a shower scene (this was too specific) or prefer them over bug/head. The fandom will HATE you because you don’t like Betty. The fandom will hate you because you don’t like Veronica. The fandom will hate you because you like Archie, or because you only like Jughead (not Betty). The fandom will tell you to kill yourself because you don’t like that actress from the show everyone likes. The fandom will make you feel bad for stanning someone. The fandom will hate you because you DON’T ship two actors. The fandom will hate you because you actually DO ship them. The fandom will shit on other blogs because they LIKE SOMEONE. The fandom will shade an actor because he doesn’t ship the fandom’s favorite ship. The fandom will make you afraid to follow a blog because that blog may hate your fave and harass you. The fandom will make you afraid to check tags cause most of them are filled with hate towards OTHER ships. The fandom will create hurtful nicknames like liceheads because they like a ship you hate. The fandom will hate you if you like a gay ship that isn’t canon and will make fun of you because it “doesn’t exist” (that happened to me with jarchie). The fandom will harass the actors because they think they are cringey. The fandom will bully the cast and the writers so their ship can be canon. The fandom will use the word problematic thinking unproblematic things exist. The fandom will create a tag to recast an actor because they personally dislike him. The fandom will shit on KJ, Camila, and, Cole specifically ALL THE TIME because in their opinion, they can’t act. The fandom will get mad because someone else’s fave is getting recognition for once and not their fave. The fandom will make up a bunch of lies and rumors about how much the cast dislike each other. The fandom will EXCUSE anon hate and cyber bully because it doesn’t affect their fave but someone else’s fave. The fandom will excuse cyber bully because they like the bullies. The fandom will be FRIENDS of the bullies and protect them because omg, we stan the same actress. The fandom will DESTROY you and the thing for you.

This post isn’t meant for you all to feel attacked, I don’t want that. I just wanted to let you all know why I’m going to leave and why you all should change your behavior. Don’t ruin this fandom more than it already is! You ruin the thing for some people. You have made a lot of people unstan the show. Are you happy because of that? This fandom is full of cyber bullies, people who are mean to others because of ships and fave characters. People who create other/fake accounts to harass you and attack others but play the victim/innocent card in their main accounts (you know who you are and i don’t care about you anymore. You win. I don’t care anymore. You harass everyone that doesn’t stan **** but no ones gonna tell you anything so i won’t do it either. YOU WIN! She deserves better stans than you) You all really think just because this a social media and no one sees your face that it’s okay to be mean and bully others?

I didn’t want to leave. I thought I had found a safe place, a space to be myself, to be happy. I still do but now my efforts feel so useless. I will never understand how people can be so CRUEL. I didn’t want to leave but I have to. It’s so hard to be positive, to be yourself, to spread love, to give others a safe space when the only thing you see is HATE. I feel like i failed Cole. I loved this blog a lot and I still do. I loved a lot of things but now I can’t just look at them cause they make me sick. Sorry to my followers specially to the ones that loved my blog for being safe for them. I failed you all too. I hope you find safer places and stronger bloggers.

Are you happy now?

\

Special thanks to @sprouseharts cause Ella, you are gold! You are one of the few good things this fandom has! Never change

@colelili because trinnie is just amazing! Thank you for being there <3 I hope I’ll talk to you again some day

@dorothytv10 YOU are the best! You made me feel better so many times when i was feeling like shit! You are the best

Thank you for being a friend!


PD: I know a lot of you will unfollow me for this but please, know that my intentions were never hurting anyone. I know I’m not a saint, I don’t pretend to be that but please know also that I needed to say this. You know now. You can make this fandom a better place for others and yourself. Fandoms are meant to be fun, not toxic.

anonymous asked:

What sort of master is Qui-Gon? He didn't notice that the bond dissolved or that Obi-Wan is not longer living with him? Can we see what happens in Naboo, and Xantos telling some hard truths to Qui-Gon

His heart was pounding. There was a link missing in his mind, he hadn’t noticed it, to swept up into Anakin’s very Force presence but now that he was away from that nova of Force, his mind was suddenly noting something wrong, something missing, something vital.

Obi-Wan.

His bond to Obi-Wan was not there. It had unraveled.

When had it…it had been firm before the council meeting but then…

The fact that he hadn’t noticed was horrifying. The fact that he hadn’t noticed his padawan was missing from his mind was terrifying.

And then Obi-Wan was also gone from their quarters.

His room was empty.

Obi-Wan’s little knicknacks and homework gone.

Qui-Gon stood in the doorway, staring at the empty room, his stomach lurching before he slowly stepped into it and sat down on the bed, staring at it as if Obi-Wan would magically appear from beneath the flat blankets.

“Qui-Gon what the kriff were you thin-Qui-Gon?” The older man looked up, blinking at Feemor who stared back at him in surprise.

“Are you…what are you doing?” The blond asked cautiously, stepping slowly into the room and towards the older man.

“…Being my foolhearted stubborn self…is Obi-Wan alright?”

“Do you honestly care?” Feemor asked warily and Qui-Gon flinched a bit, burying his face in his hands. The blond eyed him a bit more before slowly sitting down beside him. “…What happened?”

“Stupidity at the highest level. That’s what.” Qui-Gon got out between his hands, digging his fingers into his temples. “How badly did I hurt him?” Obi-Wan, for all his skills, struggled with insecurity issues.

His actions in the council chambers couldn’t have helped one iota.

“…Hurt. Confused. Unsure what the future will mean for him. Did you mean to unravel the bond and renounce him?”

“Force no. I don’t know what happened Feemor. I…I don’t know what kriffing happened.” The man slowly pulled his hands away from his face. “Anakin needs to be trained but I never meant to…Obi-Wan is ready, is capable. He has things to learn but so did you and Xanatos when you left my care.” Qui-Gon blew a harsh breath through his nose. “But I did not mean to unravel the bond…”

“…Xanatos is very angry at you. He’s dealing with it by sticking close to Obi-Wan.” Feemor sighed.

“I should expect a harsh sparring session in the future you mean.” Qui-Gon deserved it too.

“…I would try to mend fences with Obi-Wan but not right now. He’s still…he needs time, and he might not get to have that time if you’re both being sent back to Naboo.”

“After then. If he lets me.” Qui-Gon sighed and glanced about the room. “…Thank you for helping him Feemor.”

“He is my linage brother.” Feemor smiled thinly.

()()()

Being rebuffed hurt but it was to be expected, especially with Obi-Wan needing time to pack and prepare.

The awkward flight back to Naboo had been expected too even. Especially with Xanatos skulking around his lineage brother like a particular ill tempered akk dog. Xanatos had always been fond of Obi-Wan, from the moment Qui-Gon had introduced him to both Feemor and Xanatos. When Obi-Wan had been a scrawny kid, he had piggybacked him all over the temple or on missions just for the fun of it.

Now Obi-Wan was to big but Xanatos was just as protective as when the other had been a tiny shy padawan by Qui-Gon’s side.

Qui-Gon would have lectured Xanatos on the purpose of releasing such emotions to the Force…but at the moment he rightly deserved the ravens tempered glares as Obi-Wan quietly made himself as much a ghost as he could on the small ship.

What had not been expected was for Obi-Wan to end up alone with the Sith. What had not been expected was for the lightstaff not only to penetrate Obi-Wan’s left lower stomach but also cut of the copper haired Jedi’s leg at the lower thigh.

“OBI-WAN!”

If Qui-Gon was a bit unbalanced after witnessing Obi-Wan’s fall, who could blame him?

He slammed into the Sith hard and would have lost hadn’t the Zabrak suddenly lost balance and fell right into the path of Qui-Gon’s lightsaber, decapitating him at the neck. Behind the red and black creature, Obi-Wan laid on his side, hand stretched out and his face set in a pale grimace of exhaustion and utter pain.

“Obi-Wan. Force you silly child.” Qui-Gon scrambled over to him, focusing his limited healing knowledge on the hole through the others lower stomach, whispering curses and praises under his breath to the copper haired man.

There was a noise behind them and Qui-Gon almost drew his lightsaber until he felt Xanatos come rushing down the hall. Good, the man must have dealt with the droid ship.

“Obi-Wan, Qu-FORCE!”

“Xanatos get over here. I can only do so much.” Qui-Gon growled out.

His former padawan joined him, his face pale as snow as he settled his hands to help heal Obi-Wan. “What happened?”
“The sith. We got separated. Obi-Wan got…” Qui-Gon gritted his teeth, listening to Obi-Wan hitched breath.

“Hurts…” Obi-Wan wheezed, squirming a bit beneath their hands.

“I know Obi-Wan.” Qui-Gon bent until their foreheads almost touched, channeling all he could to heal the other, focusing on the damaged and charred tissue. “But hold on. Hold on for us. I’m not ready to let go. I wasn’t ready to let go in that kiffing council chamber.”

“Then why did you?” Green eyes stared up into blue.

“I don’t know. Obi-Wan don’t let GO.”

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.

On Rey and Grudges

The conflict I see often in a conversation between whether or not Rey is going to be able to help Kylo through a redemption arc, or simply be the one to kill him, resides in assuming that whatever dynamic they have in this first movie is going to carry forward into the other two. That places people into the camp of ‘Rey was being violated’ vs. 'Kylo went easy on her’, and to try and argue through either of these is inconsequential; because we are watching an act of war, in this movie. Not a love scene. Definitely not a sex scene. Rey is a prisoner of war, and she’s being treated as such. Whether or not he showed compassion for her, or went easy on her, doesn’t matter yet - because he is a soldier, performing an act of war on a civilian, and should be thought of as such. That is the dynamic to keep in mind when watching this first movie on it’s own. Kylo is doing his job. Rey is being tortured, even if it’s supposedly not as bad as it could have been - and she rightfully hates him for it. He kills his father as an act of war, and she hates him for it. You can see that hate continue forward when she attacks him in the snow, in the snarl in her face, and the way she unnecessarily cut through his face - and probably, however briefly, considered killing him right then and there, before the choice was taken away from her.

This is likely why it’s hinted that Rey will be flirting with the Dark Side. Because she has hate in her, now. Hate that needs to be dealt with. And that is the takeaway from the first movie. But is it the takeaway from the trilogy? Of course not.

Throughout the movie we’re introduced to Rey as an indomitable spirit. She’s abandoned as a child - a CHILD - to live alone in the desert. She’s starving more often than not, she’s completely alone, she’s subject to the whims of a creature that has no empathy for her plight and swindles her at every turn. She’s tortured by her very life, her abandonment, her loneliness. And she has people to blame. There are people - helpfully FACELESS people, which are always the easiest to hate - that she could blame for all of this.

And perhaps, as a child, she did. Perhaps it took Rey a lot of time to forgive whoever abandoned her, and begin to hope for their return. We certainly see anger and heartbreak in that child’s face as Unkar pulls her away. Who’s to say she didn’t let that turn into a hate that revealed itself in childish tantrums?

The only thing we do know, is that she doesn’t hate them now. She scratches notches into the wall, waiting for their return. She speaks of them as if they are benevolent beings, who must have had a good reason for abandoning her. She not only hopes they still care about her enough to return, she staunchly stands by it, stubborn enough to want to return to her desert starvation in order to wait for them to return. She has no reason to believe they will return. She has had no sign from them her entire life, and Unkar certainly isn’t the kind of man to instill hope in a being. Why, then, does she get over whatever abandonment issues and betrayal this act performs, in order to think of these faceless people with a desperation that makes her want to stay on this planet? That makes her want them back?

And keep in mind, she does have the chance to leave the planet. Not just in this movie - in the Rey excerpt of the Star Wars novel, “Before The Awakening”, (small spoilers incoming, skip the next few paragraphs if you’d rather read it on your own), Rey finds a ship that she actually manages to get to work, with the help of two other scavengers. The first thing those scavengers want to do with that ship is leave Jakku - and they want her to come with them. This prospect thrills them, because they’re ready for freedom, for adventure, for a life that isn’t subject to the whims of Unkar Plutt. They’re blown away when Rey informs them that she can’t leave. She’s still waiting for her family. She just wants to sell the ship for enough rations to keep her fed until they return.

She’s still hoping that these faceless abandoners will relent. She still has faith, in that tiny little starving body, that there’s something more to her family than what they’ve done to her in the past.

And here comes yet another example of Rey’s refusal to hold a grudge. These two people - the closest things she might have had to friends in her entire life, for a little while - steal her ship from her, and leave Jakku. They only do it when they know for sure she’s unwilling to leave - at the moment she’s heading to Unkar, to haggle the price - but they steal it, just the same.

And this is Rey’s reaction.

“Rey stood there a long time. When she finally moved it was to mount her speeder and drive home, back to the walker. She knew she should be angry, but she wasn’t.”

Anyone else in that situation would have been absolutely murderous with anger. These people stole all of her hard work, her chance at food, and they lied to her even as she left them with the ship to go talk to Unkar. She’d been betrayed so completely, that she has every right to hate them. She even lets out some frustrated rage once she’s home, punching the lenses out of a stormtrooper helmet, because this betrayal is so life-changing.

And still, she can’t hate them. Because she looks past the act, and understands the intentions of their cruelty. She can’t turn a blind eye to the reasons behind what they’ve done, even though the act itself is so horrid.

And this is the Rey we’re presented with, in this first movie.

A Rey who has not only forgiven the people who’ve left her to a life of starvation and loneliness, but waits hopefully for their return.

A Rey who never holds a grudge against the man who constantly swindles her, leaving her half-starved no matter how good her scavenger haul is.

A Rey who’s been so completely, utterly betrayed, that she has nothing to look forward to but a lifetime of pain, and can’t find it in herself to hate the people who’ve done it to her.

A person who finds hope where hope should never be, and refuses to let go. (Even her name is a nod to this nearly unbelievable characteristic.)

This is the Rey who’s been tortured at the hands of the First Order. A Rey whose mind was scoured for memories that she never wanted shared. A Rey who hates the man who killed Han Solo, the closest thing she’s had to family in her entire life.

If you think Rey’s never going to see past all of that hate, all of that anger, and find something in Kylo Ren worth fighting for, you might just be looking at this story from the point of view of only 1/3rd of it has offered. Can I blame you? Of course not - that’s all we have, so far. But we’re inundated with Rey’s backstory and her indomitable spirit for a reason. This character was made into a beacon of hope for a reason. She’s not like most of us. She’s not supposed to be like most of us. She’s the kind of person who doesn’t hold a grudge. And that’s possibly the most rare trait a human being could possess in this entire world.

I don’t relate to Rey. I admire her. She is what I wish I could be, in the face of pain and strife. And that’s why I love her.

And that is also why I’m confident, moving forward, that with time and probably a  whole lot more outbursts of hate before it happens, Rey is going to see something worthwhile past the monster. She’s the one who gave him that title - she’s the only one who can take it away.

Top five Fruitshipping moments. Cause I want to see a good show don't tell relationship and we have plenty of moments to fill a large variety of these lists.

Oh god just 5??? Okay I got this be still my heart

5. Episode 2, Yuzu and Yuya’s action duel

Okay I know this is pretty early in the series and it can be seen as platonic, but you get so much character from this scene and grounds of a solid friendship between them. Like:

Yuzu’s getting shit because she was rude to Yuya like some of the fandom does to her lol but instead she just goes with it.

Like at this point of the story we now know both Yuya and Yuzu are entertainers, and now we get to see them doing what they love together and how they work off each other.

Not to mention this scene is funny as hell. Like wow it’s just showing us two cuties performing together (granted it’s not perfect because Yuya’s in funk atm) and I already fell for their dynamic at this point and its only ep 2. 

ALSO they fucking used Plain Plain (where this duel took place) in episode 141 to rip my god damn heart out and to show this duel had meaning and we should realize that we’re missing Yuzu.

4. Yuya is PISSED/cry baby (eps 50 + 51)

At this point in the show we’ve gotten a good basis on their relationship. Yuya and Yuzu are childhood friends with the same goal and they inspire each other to become stronger. Pretty standard and honestly nothing new.

And then they get separated.

Like I did NOT expected them to act the way they did when this happened (at least Yuya because when has a main protag ever cared that much for the female protag minus Anzu from season 0)

I am 98% sure that this is the first time Yuya has cried openly to people without his goggles AND ITS CAUSE OF YUZU. This boy has hidden his emotions about his dad, his bullying, and pendulum summoning but Yuzu’s apparent capture is what got Yuya to finally show his sadness and not cover them with jokes and his goggles.

Yuya as we know, when he’s not berserker, is a pacifist but he’s going out of character because he’s so mentally distraught and sad. Like the only person I would get like that for is my twin so to me this speaks volumes since Yuya values Yuzu’s well being over his own values.  

And then in Yugioh it’s a known thing that the female protags most times stay on the side line and cheer on the main protag AND THEYRE ACTUALLY ACKNOWLEDGING IT AND IT’S SUPER IMPORTANT TO YUYA. Like apparently Yuma’s says something similar to Kotori near the end of Zexal but I’m not there yet but like this is ep 50 compared to 140-something.

Looking back this is super important. Like when Zarc got revived he stated he was surprised/thrilled that there was more to Pendulum Summoning than he first thought (combining all the three methods w/ it) and the reason Yuya was able to do it was because of Yuzu. He was able to go beyond Zarc’s expectations and plans BECAUSE OF YUZU.

God when has a main protag screamed out a female protags name like that before in yugioh??? 

Yuzu is also a cry baby three episodes down the line.

3. Yuzu saves Yuya from Zarc

It speaks volumes when nearly all your friends (including your bff THE MAN Gonzengaka) can’t save from Satan, but the moment you say one sentence to you, you regain some control.

Like god, I love their relationship. Zarc and Ray are literally trying to destroy the other but these two can break through their previous lives soul’s to communicate with one another cause of how god damn much they mean to each other.

Listen if you go across DIMENSIONS to get save someone in Yugioh YOU KNOW your ship is real (Spiritshipping and Keyshipping being the other prime examples). But like in my fruitshipping video (which ya’ll should watch) this moment is when I used the lyrics ‘no distance can ever keep us apart’ because WOW dimensions AND demonic/angelic possessions isn’t enough sever the bond between these two.

Also my otp tag.

2. Yuya summons Odd-Eyes Raging Dragon

Lowkey this moment is up so high because Yuya’s just fucking amazing in this scene. Like Zarc’s influence is getting stronger but like LIST OF THINGS THAT HAVE CAUSED YUYA SO GO BERSERKER 

-Ep 39 with Zarc’s trigger words and Yuya didn’t even remember it

-Yuto’s memories of being attacked the Academia 

-Being electrocuted in the god damn brain

-Being in the same area as all four boys that causes a hole to open in the sky

-Creepy old guys touching Yuzu

Like one of these things is not like the other lol

Seriously though, the others are near close to psychological torture and PTSD but someone touching Yuzu inappropriately invokes the same amount of rage from Yuya. THATS A HUGE ASS COMPARISON. Also the scene was gorgeous god damn.

1. Yuzu inspires Yuya during Friendship Cup

Okay this moment…THIS is when Fruitshipping went from a casual ship to god damn otp for me.

So for the past couple eps, Yuya has been feeling like shit (ground facility, losing Jack, missing Yuzu), of course Yuzu doesn’t know some of bad shit that’s going on, but goddamit the citrus is going to show the tomato that she’s okay.

Like dueling for other people is nothing new to yugioh but holy SHIT

Of course Yuzu doesn’t know the cost of losing, but all she wants to do is make Yuya feel at ease (which the poor boy hasn’t felt in so long fuck)

Yuzu hasn’t spoken to Yuya this entire arc but she knows how he’s feeling right now. She knows Yuya. This just furthers the belief that they’ve known each other for so god damn long and are ‘irreplaceable’ to one another.

Look at how goddamn surprised he is. Like instead of worrying about herself, she’s worried about him?? Granted this might have to do with Yuya’s self worth issues And as the duel goes on, it’s not just her feelings she trying to convey to Yuya (hot-blooded and shivers). Instead of ‘oh look it’s your love-interest’s feelings’ she shows that everyone from back in Standard are also with Yuya.

ALSO THEY PLAYED YUYA’S THEME DURING THIS GOD. EVEN THE OST’S ARE SHOWING US THEIR RELATIONSHIP.

LOOK AT HOW GOD DAMN HAPPY HE IS. LIKE WHEN HAS THIS BOY EVER CRIED FROM JOY SO FAR IN THIS SHOW. THIS IS DEVELOPMENT THAT HE SHOULDN’T HIDE HIS EMOTIONS AND SHOULD EMBRACE THEM AHH.

Just…fuck me.

Have you seen the head cannon where Kiri is the dragon Blasty has in the new bnha ending? (Love your work btw)

That’s kinda hard to miss, is it? Everyone and their grandmothers are making fanworks for it haha which I’ll be forever grateful for, actually, dragons are my #1 weakness and the more dragon!Kiri I have the happier I am (best version of it I’ve seen yet is syb’s but lbr she’s my fav artist and I’m weak) (also requirings has an ongoing comic series with those premises!!!! I’m living for it)

Anon said: Hey I loveeeeeeee your bnha fusion au and I was wondering if bakugou and midoriya’s fusion is so unstable why do they even fuse in the first place? Sorry for bothering and thank you for being so great!!!

I mentioned this in the tags under that specific post already, but I guess repeating it won’t hurt, so! It happened during the End of Term Exam! (this is gonna be spoiler if you’re only watching the anime) All Might put them in the position where they ended up being forced to try, but it lasted less than 30 seconds before they broke apart - to set in somewhere in the canon exam… after Deku pulled Bakugou away but before their combined attack. Like, when they were coming up with a strategy to take All Might out they first tried fusing, but it just didn’t work and their time was too limited to try and force it.

Anyway if they were to try again now they’d probably last way longer, but at this point neither of them has felt the need to give it a try just yet haha

anonymous asked:

Feycien Apocolyplse AU?

Feycien Apocalypse AU: Right I’m just going for your bog standard typical modern day zombie apocalypse a la the walking dead here okay, Feyre does not get to be an accidental necromancer this time. 

Okay so Feyre is separated from her sisters when the outbreak happens and is desperate to get back to their hometown and see if she can find them because she needs to know if they made it. She’s almost 100% certain that nothing, alive or dead, is going to get the better of Nesta Archeron, especially not if she’s also protecting Elain, but she has to know, she made a promise to her mother after all. 

Feyre gets through on her own pretty damn well. She’s intelligent, scrappy, practical as all heck and quickly discovers the best way of killing the damn things and avoiding them wherever possible. She’s looting a pharmacy on the way to where she’s going when she hears a disturbance at the supermarket she was planning to tackle next. 

Cautiously, she goes nextdoor to look and realises that several of the things have pinned down someone else. She should just sling her bag over her back and leave them to it, it’s making a very nice distraction for her but…Well she needs the food and other supplies so with a sigh she takes the things by surprise which gives the other person in the store the opportunity to take out the other half.  

Once they’re done they stand watching each other for a long time. Feyre studies him, about her age, maybe a few years older, long red hair coming out of the loose braid its in, tall, slim, missing an eye but the other pierces her with an intelligent glint. Panting he thanks her for her help and offers her some of the supplies he’s gathered as a thank you and a place to stay for the night. She’s wary of him but…she hasn’t really slept that well on her own without anyone to watch over her, waking at every slight noise and a proper place sounds good. She figures she can take him if it comes to it. 

They don’t swap names, she just grunts her assent to his plan and stomps out of the store. He trails after her then leads the way, prattling the whole while and getting two and three word answers out of Feyre if he’s lucky. He huffs a little about it and she snaps at him but he surprises her and just laughs as he leads her inside a veritable manor house, into the living room which looks like the place he’s been sleeping. 

He explains, briefly, that he used to live here with his father and brothers but that they’re dead now. There’s a cold, callousness in his voice that stops her from asking any more questions. She doesn’t need to know, doesn’t care, she’ll be leaving him in the morning. 

Lucien offers Feyre some hot food which she hasn’t had in a while and this teases a little more of her story out of her. She explains that she’s on her way north, heading back home to find her sisters. He raises an eyebrow at this but doesn’t question that, only points out that she’s going the wrong way, heading more northwest than anything else. Feyre curses, slumping back against the chair and groaning. Navigation has never been her strong point and unfortunately satnavs don’t work for long in the apocalypse. 

He studies her for a long time then asks her quietly if she’s been on her own since this thing started? Feyre scowls and tells him she was with a group for a little while, headed by someone called Tamlin…It didn’t work out. She’s been on her own since then. Lucien seems impressed by this. 

He thinks for a little while, drums his fingers on the table top, then says that he could come with her, if she wanted, keep her on the right path, watch her path. Feyre squints at him suspiciously, asks him why he’d want to leave this and come with her. He just smirks and flicks a peanut at her, “For your charming, ravishing company, obviously.” She scowls and chucks something decidedly heavier than a peanut at his head which he dodges, snickering. He sobers a little when he shrugs and tells her the only thing worth staying here for is the piano - and he can’t even play that without attracting an unwanted audience of the undead. (Feyre does not mirror his goofy grin at this hilarious joke) But he says, more seriously, that he can’t last much longer here. The hoards are getting worse and he’s running out of supplies…if he went with her he could watch her back, they could help each other stay alive in this mess…He doesn’t have much else to do, at this point he’s just surviving out of habit. 

Feyre considers…She’s been doing alright on her own but…the further north she goes the worse things get. It’d be nice to have someone to keep an eye on her…And point her in the right direction. After a long moment she agrees. He grins at her in an oddly endearing way and tells her that his name is Lucien. She introduces herself as Feyre and with that finishes her meal and stomps into the living room, dropping her bag unceremoniously in a corner, settling herself down on a pile of cushions and warning Lucien in a low snarl that if he robs her she’ll never rest until she’s hunted him down and fed him to the meanest, hungriest group of walkers she can find. Lucien chuckles and decides he likes her. 

THEN IT’S JUST TROPE TIME. (This is the #1 reason I love apocalypse aus they open up…a whole vista of beautiful trope potentials) please consider the following: 

1)- Definite sort-of-enemies to friends to lovers because like…within ten minutes of them starting their journey the next day they probably want to murder each other. Because oh my god you are the most annoying person I have ever clapped eyes on why the fuck did I save you? You are literally the dullest person I have ever met if the apocalypse doesn’t kill me you will, I’m going to die of sheer boredom. They spend at least two weeks constantly sniping at each other and at least three times are so distracted by their bickering they nearly get eaten. (Also please consider: bickering at the same time as fighting. They’re literally snarling at each other while they save each other’s lives it’s beautiful.) 

2)- Getting to know each other a little better and okay maybe you’re not that bad, you can make me laugh sometimes. I feel safe around you…I haven’t felt safe since this thing started but..I feel safe with you. 

 You’re not that dull, I suppose, you have moments of wit that make up for the 99% of time you spend grouchy. And you are quite good at keeping us alive, I’ll give you that, your stubborn spirit appeals to me. 

They tell each other more about their families. Lucien flippantly tells her that this apocalypse was the best thing that ever happened to him since it got rid of his father and his brothers who were all, by and large, awful. He sobers a little when he speaks of his mother, murmurs sadly that she would probably have liked Feyre if he met her. But that’s pointless. He hasn’t seen her in years - his father kept him away from her - and anyway, she’s probably dead now, so this it’s pointless. His voice is cold and emotionless but Feyre is sure she sees a tear glistening in his remaining eye before he turns away from her. She doesn’t push him on it. 

Feyre explains about her sisters, Elain’s garden, her sweet, strong determination, the way she just keeps going, adapating and growing whatever the world throws at her - just like her plants. She tells her about Nesta’s stubborn determination, her pride, her icy mask and the fact that so few people ever bother to take the time to see beneath to the roaring, raging, loving heart that lingers beneath. 

3)- We are in the middle of the apocalypse how is your hair still so shiny and gorgeous; why do I want to spend all my time running my fingers through it? 

Your smile is very pretty - you don’t do it much but when you do your eyes sparkle and that pert little nose of yours crinkles up. It’s endearing. Please smile more. 

4)- Feyre is a mean shot with a gun but most unfortunately guns are noisy. Lucien it turns out has a shockingly well developed skill with a hunting knife (and a very large collection of them too) she doesn’t ask about it but she does ask him to show her how to use them (and he asks how to use her pistol) and listen…Then we just get like…Highly Necessary Sexually Charged Touchy Feelyness. No, no you’re standing wrong, let me nudge your hips a little, correct your grip and I’m going to spend the entire time staring into your eyes in a very sexual way because what else is the point of this apocalypse!? 

5)- So many near kisses. Like 16 near kisses. They spend a lot of time very close together making sexy eye contact (idk why they just do) Definitely get squished into confined spaces together hiding from zombies and we need to be quiet but also wow your eyes are really pretty this close up. I can count your freckles. That’s neat. I’ve only just realised that you put yourself on the outside so that they’ll take you first if they find us and I don’t know how I never noticed how handsome you were before now and you keep telling me you don’t care but..I don’t believe you anymore. 

6)- PATCH UP HEAVEN. So much patch-up. So much fussy Lucien. So much stubborn Feyre. So much: ‘I can keep going, it’s not that bad.’ ‘Yes, it is, you can barely walk.’ ‘I’ll be fine, we’ll just take it slower for a little while.’ ‘No, we won’t, we’ll stop and rest.’ ‘No.’ ‘Yes.’ *Lots of glowering fierce, hard-headed eye contact is made  here along with a large dollop of sexual tension just because* *Feyre starts to irritably walk away and Lucien grabs her arm, holding her in place* Lucien (softly and with feeling) “Please, Feyre, just…Let me do this for you.” *Feyre melts* Feyre (softly and with feeling) “Okay.” 

Cue Lucien’s big, deft (indecently attractive, like what the fuck dude I’m trying to survive an apocalypse here how am I supposed to do that with this distraction!?) gentle hands carefully cleaning and binding up Feyre’s wounds while he tuts at her and tells her that she really ought to be more careful while she’s being his knight in shining armour and saving his life. Feyre tells him flatly that well in that case next time she’ll leave him to his own devices and make sure she looks after herself…but he knows her well enough to note the small smile tugging at her lips, the glint of humour in her eyes and he grins at her in that way that’s slowly undoing her day by day and making her vulnerable in a way that she knows is dangerous given their current circumstances but…she doesn’t care. 

7)- ‘I found chocolate.’ ‘You did not.’ ‘I did.’ ‘Gimme.’ ‘Ah, ah, ah don’t be greedy.’ ‘Give me the chocolate.’ ‘So demanding, Feyre, where are your manners?’ ‘They went out of the window when I spent four months in your company with no chocolate. Give.’ ‘Close your eyes.’ ‘You can’t be serious.’ ‘Oh come on, it’s not that hard.’ ‘We’re in the middle of an apocalypse, Lucien.’ ‘I promise you can open them again if we’re in imminent danger of getting eaten.’ ‘Lucien-’ ‘Go on, no chocolate if you don’t behave.’ ‘Lucien, I will stab you in your other eye and sit on your corpse as I eat your chocolate.’ ‘You wouldn’t, you’d miss me too much.’ ‘I wouldn’t bet on it.’ ‘Oh I would, your life would be painfully dull without me in it.’ *Feyre heaves a very long-suffering sigh* ‘If I close my eyes, you’ll give me some chocolate?’ ‘I will, I swear it.’ Feyre closes her eyes very irritably then opens them again a second later to find Lucien very comically pouting at her for her cheating. She laughs a little then closes her eyes again and keeps them closed. Lucien breaks off a tiny piece of chocolate and presses it to Feyre’s lips, pressing it gently into her mouth. Feyre moans and slumps against Lucien in ecstasy and he laughs and looks down at her like she’s everything he’s ever wanted in the world. Feyre squints at him curiously, noting the look, “What?” “Nothing,” Lucien blatantly lies, wrapping up the chocolate and putting it away. Feyre whines piteously and Lucien whaps her playfully on the nose ‘More later,’ he tells her, ‘Too much of a good thing, you’re already spoiled rotten having me around.’ Feyre sighs and bickering commences as they set off again. 

8)- Look, there isn’t a lot of decent central heating in the apocalypse you know, they have to stay warm somehow. They probably avoid it most of the way but one night it starts chucking it down with rain and they find some draughty, ramshackle shelter that they both shiver in and can’t get a fire going because of the rain. Lucien smirks a lot and makes about 12 inappropriate comments a minute but when Feyre reluctantly backs up against him the arm he wraps around her is gentle and solid and being held in his arms is…oddly comforting. When they wake up the next morning they linger just a little bit longer than they need to before they make themselves separate and start packing up. After that they start sleeping with one another every night. Because you know warmth. Just warmth!!! We feel nothing!!! we are entirely emotionless beings!!! No feelings!!! (how they manage to lie to themselves for as long as they do is beyond me tbh. They are transparent) 

9)- Dramatic Rescue Scenes in which Feyre gets swarmed and Lucien returns the favour and saves her life. It’s still raining (for The Aesthetic) and for the most part he’s been pretty laid back about this whole surviving thing - as though he’s just doing it by accident and so as to keep gracing her with the glory of his presence. She’s never really, truly pulled a lot of emotion out of him but she does then. There’s a fire burning in his remaining eye as he looks at her and realises that he might lose her and that that is not something he is in any way prepared to do. He cuts through the bodies around her like a hurricane until he reaches her and the sight of him panting slightly, gaze blazing, hair plastered to his skin, blood smeared on his skin makes her want to survive this thing because she this, the depth in his eyes, the devotion there, makes her want to paint him. 

It makes her want to kiss him too. So she does. She just grabs the front of his shirt and pulls him down to her because fuck it, she’s done just surviving through this thing. She wants to live again. And he makes her feel alive. 

Lucien has been wanting to kiss this ridiculous, stubborn, serious girl for like a solid month at this point and there’s all this adrenaline flying around and okay the short version is that he is Into This.  

They find the nearest empty, enclosed, reasonably safe place and then clothes are coming off and Lucien is dragging a box of condoms out of his bag looking entirely too pleased with himself while Feyre raises an eyebrow at him. He probably makes some ridiculous comment about there being no such thing about being too prepared which gets cut off with a groan because Feyre is tearing open the packet with her teeth and that ends that discussion. She pushes him back and straddles him growling at him when he slides a hand between her legs because foreplay takes too damn long and she wants him now. Lucien doesn’t argue with this. She rides him hard and fast and neither of them lasts long because, like, apocalypse, but when they’re done she just lies down on top of him and Lucien has a moment of gentlemanly impulse and tugs a blanket over the two of them. 

He probably kisses the top of her head and warns her not to do anything like that to him ever, ever again. He can’t do this without her, he can’t. She’s stubborn and she can be impossible sometimes and god knows she tries his patience and infuriates him and he knows she’s sneaking pieces of that chocolate when he’s not looking but he has gotten quite fond of her during their time together, and she’s not half bad in bed and…and he needs her. Okay? Feyre after mumbling a lot of sleepy promises about not getting herself nearly eaten right in front of him again has fallen asleep with her head against his shoulder. He huffs about her rudeness but he’s smiling when he kisses her head and pulls the blanket up a little higher. It feels safe to whisper into the quiet darkness that he loves her. 

10)- Lucien spends…quite some time pondering over how the heck to tell this girl that he loves her. It’s not a very easy thing to tell someone when the world hasn’t gone to hell and they’re not under threat of being eaten by violent cannibalistic walking corpses every two minutes but while that’s happening it does complicate things. He doesn’t even know if he should tell her. I mean, it’s not exactly a good idea getting too attached to someone under these conditions. And maybe she doesn’t feel the same way. Maybe she just needed a release that night…and this morning…and this afternoon…and when they stopped for a little while to wait out the rain in the evening…and while dinner cooked…and after they’d eaten. But, well, they’re living under very stressful conditions, he doesn’t blame her for needing that. And he wouldn’t blame her for not being in love with him either, I mean why would she? He goes around in circles for several days and eventually decides that he won’t tell her. He doesn’t need to. He gets to be with her for as long as this new world gives him…That’s enough. 

Feyre doesn’t make a very big song and dance about it when she tells him. They’ve stopped for the night and are wrapped under a single blanket, sitting side by side, eating dinner.  Lucien slips her another piece of chocolate (after teasing her with it for a very long time while she -_-) He laughs and gives it to her and then kisses her so he can taste it on her tongue. Then he kisses her nose just because he likes the way it always makes her blink at him like a startled puppy and that makes him laugh. 

She just looks at him fondly as he laughs then comfortably rests her head gently on his shoulder, lets him put his arm around her, and murmurs that she loves him. He goes completely still and stares down at her in utter astonishment and she stares up at him with equal confusion, “You didn’t know?” He just laughs again, longer and louder than he’s done since this mess started then he murmurs that he loves her too and kisses her, long and slow and deep. 

11)- They keep going, bickering, fucking, fighting, surviving, loving each other. Eventually, exhausted, they reach a refuge and decide to stop there for a little while, ask some questions, see if anyone has heard news of Feyre’s sisters. It’s been so long and things have gotten so bad. They don’t talk about it but Lucien knows she’s all but given up hope. They’re sitting in a quiet corner at breakfast, alone (they haven’t mingled much, Feyre hasn’t wanted to and Lucien hasn’t wanted to do much that isn’t be with her) Feyre is perched in Lucien’s lap when someone cries her name as they hurtle towards her. 

Lucien continues to tell her years later that his liver was permanently relocated due the elbow she rammed into it pushing herself to her feet so she could embrace her middle sister as she hugged her. The eldest waited behind them, watching and briefly hugged Feyre too once Elain had finished embracing her and babbling at her and fussing over her, looked Lucien over and nodded to him once before she turned her attention back to her sisters.  

Nesta, it transpired, along with Elain’s help, had helped start the refuge when the outbreak started. She recognised that people would need somewhere safe, somewhere organised and sheltered where people could come together and help weather the storm that was blowing. It started out small but they have more than 600 people here now. She talks about it as though it’s nothing, of little consequences, but Feyre knows better, knows that she’s proud of this, as she should be. 

The sisters show Feyre around, explaining how things work. Nesta took charge with that way of hers and just got people sorted and told. She organised supply run crews, people to teach others basic self defence as well as first aid training. She personally deals with the logistics for all of their inventory and personnel. Elain was working part-time at the hospital and she gave them access to medicines and whatever doctors and nurses they could scrounge up to help them. Together they’ve made this somewhere safe and stable and they’ve saved a lot of lives through quiet strength and firm, steely resolve and determination. 

 At some point when they’re alone together Elain confesses a little tearfully that she..She had given up on her. She isn’t proud to admit it but she was so far away and things were so bad, hardly any new survivors were coming to them any more and…Elain breaks off, smiling at her, telling her she’s here now. She surprises Feyre by glancing up at where Nesta is drilling Lucien on first aid and he’s (to her obvious irritation) smugly doing everything he’s asked with ease, then murmuring that she never gave up. Nesta was always sure that she would make it here. She said Feyre was a survivor, and that she wouldn’t let a little thing like the end of the world stop her…She was right. 

(Bonus because this is my ridiculous zombie AU and I do what I want: a few weeks after Lucien and Feyre arrive and settle in, helping Elain and Nesta run the place, a ragged group of survivors make their way to the complex. They include a tall, pretty older woman with long red hair and eyes just like Lucien’s. She drops the neat little bundle of clothes and blankets she was given in utter shock as her youngest son sprints towards her and pulls her into his arms.) 

shachath-tm  asked:

Hi, hi! Kenken-chan. How are you? I was reading the interview that was discussed on an anon. I was thinking that it isn't so terrible and it didn't hurt my shipping heart xD but anyway. Something isn't clear for me. Could you explain me this? :( what kind of relevance has this interview for the plot of the story? because in the manga we haven't seen that Levi finally communicate to his seniors about his situation. Or did he? And I'm too dumb :S Please, if you could help me it would be great!

Hello, I’m doing fine, thank you for asking! I hope you are, as well. I’m sorry if I’m responding a little late, I was asleep.

Not understanding what’s going on doesn’t make you dumb, dear! It’s alright. There are so many things happening right now in SnK, that it’s hard to grasp everything.

Now to answer your question, ever since Kenny revealed to Reeves that Levi is an Ackerman in chapter 56, it was like a huge bomb that Isayama dropped out of nowhere (although some kind of relation between Levi and Mikasa has always been suspected).

(Page 41)

And this made us wonder whether Levi was aware of this or not, and whether he’s been keeping it a secret from Mikasa this whole time.

There were some suspicious panels we got after that:

(Chapter 57, page 36)

(Chapter 57, page 37)

(Chapter 60, page 14)

These panels weren’t enough to explain whether Levi knew Kenny’s last name beforehand, and was aware of his own relation to him, or not. I remember all the theories we made about that, haha! Fun times!

Levi talks about this to Mikasa and the others in chapter 63, which is the only time he ever addresses this in front of them:

(Page 35)

(Page 37)

(Page 38)

In this chapter, Levi seems to be coming to the conclusion that he was, indeed, part of the Ackerman clan, which proves that he wasn’t aware of this prior to hearing Kenny’s last name from that MP guy. However, he wasn’t sure how Kenny was related to him, so then we had this:

(Chapter 69, page 36)

(Chapter 69, page 37)

I’m crying. Look at Levi’s eyes.

Right, so at last these panels show that Levi was just as clueless as we were. He had no idea who Kenny was to him, thus why he looks so relieved when Kenny finally tells him that he was his mother’s brother, a.k.a his uncle. Part of him most likely suspected Kenny was his father. I’m sure there was an interview about this. If I find it, I’ll link it.

So then the only time we’ve had Levi actually address this in front of his squad was in chapter 63, and apparently that was enough for Mikasa to understand that Levi was also an Ackerman. Looking back on these panels, it does make sense that she’d figure it out, haha! But I guess most of us were hoping for a literal “I’m an Ackerman too” type of confession. Oh well, like I said, I understand why some may not be satisfied with that interview. It is kind of a huge deal, it has been since the first “Levi Ackerman” we had in the manga, so most people would prefer to learn more about this in the actual story, and I’m sure we will. I’m curious to see where Isayama’s gonna take this from now on and what more revelations he has for the Ackerman clan!

I hope this clarified things to you! If you have any more questions, feel free to ask away, you can PM me if you want, too! c:

IA with you that it's your right to fan how you choose. I'm just not seeing the same respect given to those that want to remain positive about the show & actors. Even this morning you re-blogged a post that said something positive w/a neg comment. that blogger didn't come here & force you to read it. Instead of scrolling and ignoring that POV, you chose to do the exact same thing you're asking others not to do to you. You didn't allow that person to have their opinion. respect goes 2 ways.

Clearly you misunderstand me anon. I have no problems with shippers who want to remain positive and still love Sam and Cait and everything they do. That’s their prerogative and if it brings them joy then who am I to judge? 

What I do have a problem with are shippers who make people like me feel guilty and ashamed for how we feel towards them right now. Now maybe no one means to do that but I know I’m not the only one who holds this opinion. I don’t want to have problems with any shippers, but it’s so hard not to be bitter when I read certain things and people act like if you’re not a positive ray of sunshine then you’re a horrible person who deserves to stew in your negativity.

I certainly don’t want everyone to rally around me and other shippers who have been targeted and throw us a pity party. I hate even talking about this situation because it makes me really uncomfortable. All I want is for the people who think Sam and Cait are suffering so badly to maybe think about the shippers who have suffered in their name. Instead of calling us negative and treating us like we’re miserable people, maybe try and see our perspective and understand why we think the way we do.

I supported and loved them for years. I dedicated so much time to them. Anyone who truly knows me know how much of a loss this is. It hurts to look at them and not feel the love and joy I once did. It hurts to know that they don’t care about what’s happened. None of us want to be angry with them but after 3 years of manipulation, games, abuse etc I think it’s only natural to be fed up. Maybe it’s not right to take it out on them and I apologise if I’ve been too harsh, but I don’t know who else to blame. I didn’t choose to ship them because of some delusional thoughts in my head. I shipped them because of their own behaviour. I can’t sit here and blame faceless men in suits who are apparently in control of all of this and not expect Sam and Cait to take some responsibility for their own actions. I don’t think they’re robots who signed away every part of their life to someone else. They do have a part in all of this and I’m not going to baby them or treat them like victims when so many of us here have been hurt.

I’m sorry if that makes you hate me or if it makes you think I’m trying to police other shippers who feel differently to me. That was never my intention.

Hey!!! I hope this isn't weird but, What bands/singers do u like?? My music doesn't makes me exited anymore, which sucks! So im looking for new people to listen to! And i remember u putting a link of one of the new songs of all time low to your kiribaku art and i love that album also you are one of my fave artist so i thought i could ask u too! If u don't mind ofcourse!!! I hope this doesn't bother u! (I guess this is kind of useless info ahhhh i hope u don't mind!)

It’s absolutely not weird so don’t worry about it, but it’s!!!! sort of an hard question to answer because more or less anything that can fall under the very huge umbrella of the rock label is fair game for me haha the two bands I’ve been calling my favorite for longer right now are Alter Bridge and Tremonti, lately I’ve been really into Nothing More, I have a super weak spot for Halestorm too right now - I like most post-hardcore, but Pierce The Veil and Bring Me The Horizon are my faves? But, well, all this stuff is really different compared to All Time Low… since you liked them you could try Tonight Alive or One OK Rock! You Me At Six work too I think, and… Andy Black’s solo album was more pop-ish but on the same genre too, so try that one maybe! Oh and Young Guns!!!! I love Young Guns how could I forget them, they’re in this type of punk too! 

Sorry, this isn’t exactly just my faves haha I love music too much, it’s hard to pick a limited number of artists for me rip

Anon said: HIIIIIII!! First of all, i love you and your art. Now, where is the bokuroo???? :C please draw some bokuroo, i miss those two! Maybe some fluffly? But also kiribaku is good, i started shipping those two thanks to you! And sorry for my bad english. Bye bye!!

Hi! Thanks for liking my stuff!!! And I’ve talked about why I’m not drawing much Haikyuu lately right here but to make it easy because of some reasons inspiration is really low in that fandom for me right now so!!! I’ll have to ask you to be patient with the lack of content that might not be changing until Bo and Kuro start being relevant in the manga again
