  • dad: is that the Falcon? that's totally the Falcon
  • me: how do you know?
  • dad: i used to read the comic books trust me on this i'm an expert. his superpower was that he could talk to birds
  • me: birds?
  • dad: i mean in hindsight it probably wasn't the most useful thing ever
  • dad: if this winter soldier is supposedly a ghost in the machine that nobody's ever seen, and nobody will ever catch, you would think showing up in broad daylight and blowing up cars would not be his modus operandi
  • dad: how the heck did he laser through concrete??
  • me: idk dad it's nick fury he can probably do whatever he wants
  • dad: i'm sorry attractive nurse who just so happens to live next door, my heart belongs to a seventy year russian dude with a bionic arm

  • dad: captain america is like your grandad minus the booze and the cussing
  • dad: in all honesty that was a little anti-climactic
  • dad: i was 100% sure nick fury was gonna descend majestically from the heavens, 'All I do is Win' blaring in the background, and single-handedly save everyone's ass
  • dad: scarjo and chris evans are two of the most beautiful people in the world and they are both in this movie and i don't know how to feel about it i have butterflies in my stomach i'm a schoolboy again

  • Me: It's the scent of this place. It's nostalgic. Reminds me of lavender scent of my grandmother's house. Even color of the walls remind me of the bygone era of my childhood; the dim sunsets of a fuzzy summer evenings, and faint memory of fading dreams.
  • Cashier: Ah, you want to start all over do you? I know the feeling. It's enough to drive me to the brink.
  • Me: Verily. At some point, I began to live my life in retrospect. The now doesn't matter anymore because everything has become so bland. What am I to do in this monotonous life when my happy times passed so long ago. It's as if-

anonymous asked:

Why do you love 2CT? Not trying to be rude (I love it too, especially now that it's not really a theory anymore), but I'm curious about the reasons behind your passion for it.

Oh, don’t worry, this is the kind of ask I love to answer!! ;D

(Warning: Long Post)

I personally love 2CT because it completely blew my mind when I first discovered it and understood what it’s about!

I’ve always thought Ciel is an only child (even though it was never confirmed in the manga), so when I first came across a blog post of a Japanese Kuro fan with the title “Ciel Twin Theory” back in March 2014, I thought “What a crack theory, how can he have a twin, he’s an only child?”, but then I read through their analysis and was fascinated about the amount of “hints”, then I bought all the comics and checked every scene that was mentioned in said blog post on my own. And to my surprise, the hints were REAL, they were there all along, some of them were so obvious (like Madam Red’s line “my nephews” or Joker’s line “the Earl and his children”) that I was totally dumbfounded like “How on earth could I have possibly overlooked all these hints until now!!??”.

Then in the same year Yana posted this blog post where she stated that that was exactly her goal: have the readers overlook those mostly subtle but sometimes also obvious hints at first reading and then make them go “WOW!!” when they reread the same scenes - this time with the knowledge of 2CT. Yana’s plan worked out perfectly for me, this theory was so mind blowing and fascinating that I have since become obsessed with it xD

Originally posted by vernybvitday

Sadly though, this “2nd reading WOW phenomenon” didn’t really happen in the Western fandom mostly because of language issues. For example, if you reread the Japanese version with the knowledge of 2CT, then you’ll notice that NO ONE actually ever explicitly stated that Ciel is an only child (they usually use vague expressions that can be interpreted as “singular” or “plural”).

However, if you reread the English translation (be it YP or online scanlations) to check the 2CT hints, you’ll find nothing but (inaccurate) translations like “this child” “that child” “my child” “he” “the body of a child” “my nephew” “the Earl’s child” etc which all contributed to the impression that Ciel must be an only child. I’m not trying to blame the translators, they generally do an amazing job, but since most of them didn’t know the 2CT, they automatically made “singular” of all those vague Japanese expressions, and unfortunately this caused the huge confusion and the strong disbelief of 2CT that is so prevalent in the Western fandom x(

Anyway, I do understand that 2CT isn’t everyone’s cup of tea and I’m not trying to tell people to like it, but, like I’ve stated many times, I just want people to acknowledge that 1.) 2CT is a very well thought out plot twist that cleverly takes advantage of linguistical traits (the vagueness) of the Japanese language (that’s why the majority of the Japanese fandom is so fond of this theory and fascinated by Yana’s tricks) and 2.) it’s not Yana’s fault that her linguistical tricks didn’t realy work well in the English translations as they did in the Japanese version :/ (The same thing applies to HP, it’s not Rowling’s fault that the Tom Marvolo Riddle -> I am Lord Voldemord anagram didn’t work at all in the Japanese translation xD)

WARNING: Allusions to an Abusive Relationship


The silver lights cast the room in a sultry glow that drapes over the red plush seats and diamond-and-pearl covered guests like a silken shawl. Their conversations, soft under the intimidation of the glow, drift languidly toward the high ceiling of the theater and mingle together as they wander through the room.

A soft jazz tune weaves through the crowd, no more than a lazy cat no one pays much attention to as it sneaks over their heels and between the legs of their black slacks. The song wafts from the open orchestra pit, a moat between the seats and the massive wooden stage that juts out, looming in front of the crowd, a stage with such a history of grandeur that few agree to step onto it.

Some women shift in their seats in an attempt to peer around the velvet curtains that guard the back of the stage, separating audience and artist for now. They murmur to one another, wondering if the brave artist is back there, hidden in the folds of the shadows, listening to the conversations swirling around. Their chairs squeak as they move, trying to earn the first glimpse of the acclaimed performer with the voice of a cherubim.

They never see her, though, never notice you as you lean against the cool stone wall and try to understand the bits of muffled conversation that amble past you. Your eyes are shut, arms wrapped around your stomach, while you take slow breaths in through your nose, let them out through your mouth. The terror you’d known your first time on stage still haunts you, a ghost you can never rid yourself of no matter the amount of glowing reviews in newspapers or number of sold out concert halls. Terror is a constant in your life, one of the only constants you’ve known for the past four years.

Two hands wrap around your waist, covering your own hands, a wave of thick cologne that ruins your slow breathing and causes you to cough accompanying them.

Theo’s hot breath, smelling of cigarettes and whiskey, scrapes across the side of your face. “You know you’re not supposed to hang out side stage before the show, darling.”

“I needed a break.” You murmur as his stubble scratches your cheek and his chin digs into your shoulder.

“Your wardrobe team tore backstage apart looking for you. They want to get you ready.” He tugs you against his chest.

“They have plenty of time.”

“They need to start soon or you won’t look radiant tonight.”

The insult doesn’t upset you, not anymore. “What does it matter how I look if they’re here for my voice?”

His fingertips dig lightly into your stomach. “No one wants to listen to an ugly person sing. You need to shine, darling. We’ve been over this.”

The bile in your stomach simmers and you feel sick, but you nod at his words. “I’ll meet with wardrobe soon.”

He presses a rough kiss against your exposed neck. “Don’t be long. They need to get to work or we’re paying them for nothing.”

“I know, love.” You whisper as his arms unwrap from around you with one final squeeze.

Being Renessmee's Twin Includes
  • Rosalie: I'm naming her Bella. I will not allow you to butcher and mesh two more names. Her name is Carlie. Deal with it.
  • Carlie: Why can't I fight with you and momma papa? I want to show the Volturi that I'm not a scared little girl. Anyone threatens to kill my family, I refuse to run away
  • Bella: Carlie, how many times have I told you? No throwing knifes in the house. You could hurt Renessmee or yourself. Be more careful.
  • Emmett: C'mon kiddo. I'll teach you how to fight.
  • Jasper: *scoffs* It'd be best if I teach her. You get frustrated too easily Emmett.
  • Carlise: Carlie, your growth is more rapid than Renessmee's. Your genes must be slightly different from hers. It could be an attribution to a power we haven't discovered yet.
  • Esme: It's so sweet of you to help me make dinner for you and Renessmee. I feel like you and I hardly get any time together. Renessmee's always off with either her parents or Jacob and you keep to yourself most of the time. Just know that I'm here if you ever want to talk to someone sweetie. You are my grandbaby afterall.
  • Edward: Your mother and I don't love Renessmee more than you Carlie. We love you both equally. She just relies on us more than you. You've always been more independent than your sister.
  • Carlie: I'm more independent because you and mom are always with her and Aunt Rose takes care of me. But whatever. I don't care anymore. She'll be stuck here in Forks and you all will have to leave eventually and I will travel the world once I reach an acceptable age growth.
  • Bella: Where have you been Carlie?! You've been gone for three whole days! What on earth are you wearing?!
  • Carlie: *sighs* Relax mom. I went to Comic Con in San Diego and cosplayed as Harley Quinn. I went to have some fun. Geez, it's like your trying to keep me trapped with you forever since Renessmee started solely hanging out with Jacob. I bet you really hate that imprint now cause you finally have to pay attention to your other daughter.
  • Alice: Carlie, come shopping with me. We never spend any girl time together since you started buying your own clothes.
  • Carlie: But there's a Gotham marathon on today. How about I go shopping with you tomorrow then?
  • Jasper: *watching the Romanian aired teach you how to fight and use weapons from a window in the house because Bella and Edward forbid him from teaching her himself* I don't see what the problem was with them Alice. I have no urge to drink wither of the girls blood and I adore Carlie. I should be teaching her how to fight, not those barbaric two.
  • Alice: I know Jas. But she finally made some friends that weren't a part of our family. Renessmee has Jacob and that's all she needs. Carlie is free to expand herself unbound to anyone. We don't want to smother the girl by crowding her all the time.
  • Rose: I can't believe Bella never told you about periods. Oh wait, I can. Look Carlie, you have nothing to fear. It's completely natural.
  • Carlie: I HATE IT! I FEEL HORRIBLE ALL THE TIME AND I KEEP CRAVING CHEESECAKE AND CHEETOS!
  • Jacob: Why do you hate me Carlie? I never did anything to you.
  • Carlie: *rolls eyes and scoffs* Exactly. I hardly even know you and you're the guy my sister is bound to for life. You've hardly ever acknowledged me before. You've hardly ever spokento me and you have no interest in anyone but my sister. I don't like you because I know that the imprint you have with my sister isn't how you really are or were before my mom even started screwing with your life.
  • Bella: How can you say such a thing Carlie?!
  • Carlie: Oh please. Shut up mom. You know I'm right. You only support that imprint because now, Jacob will forever be within your grasp. Just because you chose not to have him all those years ago doesn't mean you get to keep him around when he's moved on with his life.
  • Renessmee: Will you be my maid of honor?
  • Carlie: I haven't seen or heard from you in nearly four years sis. And frankly I don't want to go to your wedding at all. You know your marriage won't end well. You're in love with Nahuel and whether you admit it or not, you don't feel the same pull if the imprint like you used to. Stop dragging Jacob along. Stop your relationship with him and decide what you want. God, you are worse than our mother. Make up your freaking mind.
  • Leah: I didn't think it would be possible, but I am actually best friends with someone who shares half her DNA with Bella Cullen.
  • Carlie: Oh hush. I'm nothing like my mother and you know it. Now shut up so I can hear Tom Hiddleston say "mewling quim."
  • Seth: Are you sure about this Carlie?
  • Carlie: Yes, for the thousandth time. I love you and I refuse to be bound to someone I met only once. I fell in love with you and that is what I've always wanted. To fall in love, not be bound by fate to become whatever my mate pleases.

hello hello!! could i please request yoongi + a sweet kiss? thank you 😊💝 btw you're one of my fave writers!! i'm always so happy to see updates from you (only as long as you have time to update, though! don't overwork yourself ☺️). keep up the good work and hope you're doing well!!! ⭐️

Yoongi + 9. A Sweet Kiss

A/N: thank you!!! ahhh i can’t believe i’m one of your faves :’)

Ten hours. That was how long you’d been working on this essay. You couldn’t even tell anymore if you were hungry or if you could feel your butt.

And you were exhausted. Even moving your hands to finally close the screen of your laptop felt like a chore. You stretched and felt an ache run down your back. Rubbing it out, you stood from the chair and wondered if you had the energy to cook for yourself.

“Maybe I can make Yoongi bring me food,” you muttered to yourself and found your voice scratchy from disuse.

You called him, mostly to speak to another human being after being alone with your computer for so long and found, just as you expected, that he was still awake. “What do you want?” He asked, sounding not really annoyed but expectant.

You smiled. “How do you know me so well?”

“Just do. What do you want?” His voice was faint and you could hear the familiar sounds of him typing in the background. You didn’t have to wonder to know he was working on a song.

“Bring me food? If you aren’t busy.”

“Let me finish up here. Give me half an hour.” He hung up.

You bit your lip. You were playing with fire, you knew. Ever since you’d figured out how you felt about him you’d been pushing the boundaries between friends and partners by inviting him over late.

But so far he hadn’t taken the bait. You didn’t know if he just wasn’t attracted to you or if respected you too much to make a move, but you knew the issue wasn’t another person. The boy barely had time to spend with you, he certainly didn’t have time for someone else.

If you were bolder, maybe, you would kiss him. But that thought scared you. The idea that the second your lips touched his he pulled away and stopped speaking to you, thinking you were always going to throw yourself at him.

In the midst of your worrying, the doorbell rang.

You didn’t bother getting up from your wallowing on the couch since you’d long since given Yoongi the key to your place. The doorbell was just a formality to let you know he was there.

He stepped in, dropped his keys on your coffee table, and walked past you to the kitchen. You rolled off the couch, trailing after him. “You’re not even gonna say hi?”

He lifted his eyes from the bag he’d set on your counter and gave you an unreadable look. “Hi.”

“What’d you bring?” You asked, sliding in beside him to peek into the bag.

He tensed at the touch of your skin and you wondered. Had he always been this tense at your touch?

You ran a hand down his back and shot a quick glance at his face from the corner of your eye. He was blushing. A crazy thought swirled around in your mind. “Yoongi,” you began, before you could second-guess yourself, “do you like me?”

Yoongi’s blush deepened. “Why are you asking?”

You shrugged, trying to make yourself look as nonchalant as possible. “Because I like you.”

His head turned to look at you comically fast.

You shrugged again, feeling stiff in spite of your attempts to look as casual as he always did. “It would just be nice if you liked me too.”

His lips were on yours before you had time to think.

It was only when you were sinking into his kiss, when his lips were soft and patient on yours, that you had time to wonder how long he’d been holding that in. How long he’d waiting to put his hands on your cheeks and push his fingers into your hair and breathe you in like he was then.

You crushed your body to his and gasped at his warmth and the way he moved you back against your counter. The edge dug painfully into the small of your back but you ignored it to focus on the way his hands left your face to wander down your sides and rest at your hips.

He was first to pull away and you had to stop yourself from whining at the loss of him. “You should eat,” he murmured, turning back to the bag of food, and you could see he was fighting back a smile.

You waited for him to look at you again so he could see the glint in your eye of the plans you had in store for the rest of the night and for the rest of forever, if he’d let you. Then you beamed. “Only if you stay with me.”

STORYTELLING TIME (bc the riverdale hiatus is boring): tell me about 2 of your fav riverdale ships, 2 of your fav characters, 2 of your favorite scenes out of all 7 episodes, and tell me about the pairing you last shipped/just started shipping. a detailed analysis, 10 paragraphs, i don't care. just tell me.

HECK YEAH MAN I CAN DO THIS FOR YOU

THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO SCREAM

2 fave riverdale ships

  • let me tell you about BETTY AND VERONICA

listen, okay

l i s t e n

i was not going to watch this show.

(and then i saw josie mccoy’s face and was like BUT BUT BUT and a friend had to tell me she’s barely in the pilot and to calm down, and then i didn’t plan to watch it anymore)

and then i saw it

the world’s fucking tenderest kiss to maybe ever be on television, which is JUST UNFAIR FOR EVERYONE DON’T YOU THINK??

camila mendes has a talent, is what i am saying, and that talent deserves so much appreciation that it actually got me to watch this show

(THOSE LIPS. THAT THUMB. CHRIST.)

anyway. my favorite thing about the beronica kiss is that it has absolutely nothing to do with how much i ship it. it’s just a weird fever dream bonus to everything about them that i love.

VERONICA IS JUST SO INCREDIBLY IN LOVE WITH BETTY. FROM MOMENT ONE. the train to the rest of my life speech is legit some of the gayest shit i have heard in my damn life.

i love how dedicated they are to one another. i love how they balance each other out. i love that riverdale took the classic “naughty and nice” dichotomy they had from the comics and turned it upside down and shook it, and this is what fell out

they just so clearly thrive off of each other’s energy. i love that.

but you know what i also love?

  • let me tell you about VERONICA AND CHERYL

i honestly thought for a hot minute there that i wouldn’t have interest in this show beyond beronica

and then 1x05 blessed me and watered my crops and cleared my skin and SHOWED ME THE LIGHT

it turns out, veronica directing her attentions at literally anyone is kind of all i need, and cheryl’s my GOTHIC HOT MESS OF PURE EXTRA and i adore her, and i hope one day they move into a new mansion that has a name and adopt war orphans or something.


2 fave characters

obviously you can tell i have a lot of feelings about veronica lodge, so maybe this doesn’t need saying but sorry too bad buckle up because

  • LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THE LOVE OF MY LIFE, VERONICA LODGE

ironically, i spent most of my life solidly team betty.

“but Leah,” you say, “you love poor little rich girls who are POPULAR but SAD ABOUT IT and SO MUCH MORE THAN THAT. cordelia chase! quinn fabray! glinda upland! summer roberts! you very clearly Have A Type!”

i know. i know i do. but i was BLINDSIDED man

i would die on a battlefield for veronica lodge.

because not only did this show give me “REGRETS HER MEAN GIRL PAST” veronica lodge. it over corrected so hard it gave me the bounty of MOM FRIEND VERONICA LODGE

MOM FRIEND VERONICA RUBBING CHERYL’S NECK THROUGH A PANIC ATTACK

MOM FRIEND VERONICA WRAPPING ARCHIE’S WRIST AND KISSING HIS BOOBOO

MOM FRIEND VERONICA IS NERVOUS BETTY DOESN’T GET ENOUGH SLEEP

MOM FRIEND VERONICA MAKING KEVIN PUT ARCHIE IN THE VARIETY SHOW BECAUSE JUSTICE FOR HER SMOL STAGE-FRIGHTENED SON

MOM FRIEND VERONICA LIKE “YEAH POLLY CAN LIVE IN MY HOUSE NO BIG”

the one thing i am weaker for than a sad popular girl is a girl who dances on the edge of the selfish/selfless line, who has such a big heart that she loves EVERYONE but maybe not quite as much as she loves herself. the rose tylers and rachel berrys of this world

oh wait there’s another thing i’m weak for and that is TINY BRUNETTES

veronica lodge was engineered in a science lab to hit every single one of my buttons, is what i am saying

now. i want to be very clear. i adore betty cooper, and no one on this show is more entertaining than cheryl blossom, and kevin keller is the most represented i have ever felt on television, but there was really only one other person i could say is my fave:

  • let me tell you about MY HOMELESS ASEXUAL SON, JUGHEAD JONES

“but Leah,” you say, “Jughead’s not canon ace in this show”

to which i say they can pry jughead’s lack of libido from my cold dead hands, until he says aloud on screen “i, forsythe pendleton jones the third, love doing the sex and it is my preferred method of having intimacy with my romantic partner” he can date whomever the heck he wants because, ASTONISHINGLY, ace people date! and kiss!

besides the point but aNYHOW

this kid is a fucking trainwreck and i love every inch of him

i love his ridiculous dedication to his aesthetic, i love his shitty novel, i love how much he loves his sister, i love his fwoopy bangs, i love how his reaction to being told his best friend is fucking their teacher is “wow dude sounds like you’re the victim of a sexual predator, do you need help?” rather than a high five, i love the way he delivers one-liners like he’s kind of trying not to laugh at his own jokes

riverdale isn’t riverdale without juggie

2 fave scenes out of all seven episodes

  • let me tell you about THE SCENE CONFIRMING KEVIN AND VERONICA’S QUEERPLATONIC LIFE PARTNERSHIP IN WHICH THEY GO ON MARRIED FRIEND DATES

honestly, and i truly have no excuse for this, you said “what is your favorite scene” and the VERY FIRST THING that popped into my head were these moments with ronnie and kev in the back of his father’s truck, which is ridiculous, mostly because they’re not even really a scene

but it’s just. it is so fucking satisfying, man. look at these precious babies. look at how many blankets they’re under. not only is her head on his shoulder (HERE’S ANOTHER LOOK FROM THAT ANGLE) but EVERY PART OF HER is touching EVERY PART OF HIM. he is SITTING on her CAPE. do you have any idea how much trust that entails?

what strikes me about this moment is that Riverdale is succeeding at convincing me that these kids–any of these kids, really, not just kevin and veronica–are friends. that they all enjoy spending time together, that if there weren’t a murder going on they would still see each other, and that they care about each other. ironically, on a lot of teen soaps the friendships are the first thing to be ignored or cut for time, because they’re not juicy and “don’t lead to conflict” (untrue). kevin isn’t even in the core four, and yet, here he is: taking out his best girl because there’s no other out kids except veronica at his school and this show cares about kevin and what kevin does! they could have had veronica suspiciously follow hermione to the drive in and start her conflict with her mom over fred andrews early, but no. they wanted her to have a night out with her gay husband buddy.

kevin and veronica are the kind of friends who made a marriage pact two days into knowing each other. kevin and veronica are the kinds of friends who meet each other’s eyes when they find the same things funny but it would be impolite to laugh. MY KINGDOM FOR AU WHERE KEVIN AND VERONICA BEARD FOR EACH OTHER BUT THEN, WHILE FAKE DATING, BECOME BEST FRIENDS. 

and like yes, unless veronica is actually queer (which she is) her calling kevin her best gay and–more than that–interrupting his interruption to be like “GAY THANK GOD LET’S BE BEST FRIENDS” is a little bit abhorrent. but looking past the ridiculous stereotyping, what strikes me most is that when veronica says let’s be best friends she means it. she’s team kevin now, ride or die. 

this moment shows riverdale at its best: taking a shit ton of cliched tropes but blending them in a new way and showing them with a lens of kind of delightfully unexpected compassion.

…anyway

it occurs to me that, despite finding my way back to it at the end, this is much less a rant about an actual scene and much more a rant about how much i love the friendship between veronica and kevin, but i’m sorry i love it that much. 

so i’m gonna try harder now on the next one

there are a lot of one-liners and moments i almost picked, even though, once again, those are not scenes (when jughead narrated that there were really only three kids in that booth and we all went IS JUGHEAD A GHOST, “slut shaming is when SLUTS get SHAMED,” “train to the rest of my life,” veronica’s face when betty comes out in the dominatrix gear, “that doesn’t SOUND like complete freedom,” PUSSYCAT RONNIE, fp jones saying he doesn’t want jughead to look at him like he’s garbage anymore….)

but then a dark horse candidate emerged:

  • let me tell you about the moment i realized ONE DAY I WILL BE ABLE TO LOVE ARCHIE

this show has an archie problem. so dedicated were they to proving that they weren’t going to do the classic love triangle, they made it so that archie barely interacts with half his friend group at all. isolating archie from everyone else with the grundy plot set this show back ages, and made archie almost totally irrelevant to the ensemble he ostensibly leads

but then we got this moment of hope:

“okay Leah yes we get it you like it when these idiot teens are friends”

DO YOU

DO YOU GET IT THOUGH

this was the first hint that this show would succeed at gaining my love beyond betty and veronica. and i didn’t appreciate it at the time aside from OH LOOK ARCHIE HAS A PERSONALITY I LIKE TODAY, THAT’S NICE, but in hindsight it really is quite significant. archie and jughead are supposed to be the heart of this show; it’s good to see them act like it.

and jughead is also a sarcastic little shit and he’s my son and i love him

A VERY IMPORTANT NOTE:

third place goes to the scene with betty, jughead and kevin rebuilding the murder wall and then trev shows up, which hilariously of all three of these might ACTUALLY be my real favorite scene of the whole show, for all the reasons i listed about a) the other two above and b) what i’m about to say below. sadly, though, this makes my love for it redundant and i’ve already repeated myself so much, so i’ll move on to…

the pairing i last shipped/just started shipping

  • well, let me tell you about BETTY AND JUGHEAD

i’m gonna be real with you i adore these two. i’m not fandom-y about them at all, because right now what the show is giving me is JUST RIGHT: two kids with chemistry who care about each other! we’re watching them take it slow and feel it out!

i dig the gentle vibe between them, and how they are interested in each other but mostly because they are both interested in JUSTICE and THE TRUTH and MYSTERIES

bless these idiot teen sleuths! i hope they get married and betty becomes a lawyer-slash-journalist and jughead becomes a private-eye-slash-novelist and together they start a firm called COOPER JONES INVESTIGATIONS and they solve crimes and are married, like Hart to Hart

anyway the point of this ask is that a few months ago i made a viral post about hatewatching riverdale because it’s trash but now i’m legitimately in love with it on every level so the joke is on me i guess

anonymous asked:

I know you stopped reading TWD comics so you probably don't care about this spoiler *Andrea died* but I had a question. Do you think comic Richonne will happen now? Are you worried about Michonne getting comic Andrea's death? Sorry if you don't want to talk about the comics and if I spoiled this for you.

Hey. I’ve seen the spoilers and to me, it’s just another shitty thing Kirkman has done.

In short, yes. I think comic book Richonne will happen now; that does not mean I will be happy about it.

I have a few thoughts on comic book Richonne, but, as you know, I stopped reading the books after issue #145 when Kirkman killed Ezekiel and basically solidified Michonne as the Strong Black Woman trope.

I don’t ship comic book Richonne. I may have, for a brief moment; but that died with #145.

And that is because of how Kirkman wrote their relationship and in particular, Michonne’s role in it.

In #145, I was so upset that it was reiterated that Michonne always had to be the strong one; the angry one; the one who suffered perpetually while everyone else got to find happiness (Rick included). She wasn’t afforded the opportunity to get over her PTSD; she was continually tormented by guilt of what happened to her loved ones.

In #145, she wasn’t even given the opportunity to enact some revenge. No. Rick shut that down quick smart, didn’t he? *sighs*

Now, I fear she’ll just be there to support Rick with little concern for herself or her own character development.

Now, excuse me while I stop being diplomatic a moment:

Kirkman was such a gutless fucking wonder. He should have paired Rick and Michonne together in the books from the start.

I feel like he missed his opportunity and is trying to capitalise on the success of TV Richonne; this has been done at the expense of Andrea’s character.

Richonne’s connection was there from the beginning, yet he went with pairing Rick and Andrea. Michonne was a better suited partner to Rick, and it seemed like he was going with Richonne, but RK did not. Right now, for me it feels as if he’s trying to make up for that, and in doing so, killed another beloved character as a means to an end. I’ve been done with him for some time now; this just reminds me I made the right life choice!

As for worrying about Michonne: I’m always worried about her! I don’t think she’ll get comic book Andrea’s death namely because it seems that Andrea got her TV counterpart’s death.

Lastly, I’m not talking about this anymore. In case someone feels like engaging me on the issue further, please note:

I am not here to debate something that I no longer follow i.e. TWD comic books and their current arcs.

I have had problems with RK since he wrote for Ultimate X-Men, so don’t be surprised at my resentment of him.

I am only concerned with TV Richonne now and forever more.

Thanks!

P.S. Rest In Peace Andrea

Oh dear lord I'm excited to read whatever that's gonna be from! Can't wait to get some context for that scenario. I don't know what that whole fic is gonna be about, but that should be the summary.

I don’t actually know what happens in the story after this scene, but it is a story in which Steve Rogers, former artist for the Captain America comics (a canonical fact!), meets Tony Stark the Iron Man cosplayer (also a canonical fact!) at a con where Steve has been persuaded to sign autographs. Steve is surprised and flattered that people still care about his old comics. Tony, who is both a nerd and an epic troll, takes this opportunity to introduce himself to Steve – they both have secret identities to the public at this point in canon but not to each other – by means of trolling him with said sketch request.

“Do you take commissions?” Iron Man asked, and, wow, he had the vocal filtering going, just like Tony. Steve wanted to compliment him – he was just like the real thing – but he had no idea what to say that wouldn’t give him away, because of course it wasn’t as if the entire world had intimate knowledge of Iron Man.

Steve reached for another Sharpie and uncapped it. He flipped open the issue, looking for a good place to sign, but Iron Man was still talking, even as Steve’s brain finished catching up with the question.

“I’m interested in commissioning a sketch,” Iron Man said. He leaned forward, edging into Steve’s personal space, splaying his gauntleted hands on the table. “I’d like you to draw me wearing only a tiny thong, with Captain America staring at my mostly-naked body in horror.”

Well, it wasn’t the strangest or most obscene request he’d ever gotten. But still, that was a no. That would have been a no even if he did do commissions, which he didn’t have the time to, what with the Avengers gearing up again; he wasn’t actually a working artist anymore.

Steve’s mouth was moving on autopilot, and he gave him the same answer he’d given everyone else with inappropriate requests of a similar nature. The same thing he’d told the flirtatious Nomad, actually. “I’m sorry,” he said, by rote. “I’m not comfortable with that.”

He looked away; he put his head down, focusing on the comic issue on the table. Iron Man’s shadow over the pages shifted as he leaned in more.

“Yeah,” Iron Man said, a drawling reply, but one that sounded almost amused. “Just imagine how I felt.”

At some point I’m gonna figure out what happens after this and write the rest. I’m sure Steve’s gonna end up drawing Tony something. Maybe not that, though.

malec4everr  asked:

I really don't know about the flash comics and still don't understand how and when and why Savitar was born. Please explain.

I don’t think we can look to the comics for an answer with how the show is doing this. I mean, there is a future!Barry in the comics with a black and blue suit, but he’s not ‘evil’ and he’s trying to fix shit. But I mean, he is an antagonist.

(recognize Savitar’s color scheme, anyone? google image search “future flash” for more)

I haven’t read this arc, personally, so I’m not 100% sure of future Flash’s motives but I think it’s about saving Wally and fixing the timeline. He’s still Barry, not a monster. @gorogues might be able to provide more details, or someone else who reads the comics more closely than I do?

But, I do think we can speculate a bit about “how and why and when Savitar was born” from what we’ve seen int he show.

Things that we know:

  • Savitar is a future offshoot or version of Barry
  • Savitar claims Barry stole “everything” from him
  • Savitar says it’s “him or Iris”
  • Savitar was trapped in the speed force by Barry

We know point 1 because 2024!Barry and Savitar have unique memories (Savitar doesn’t have 2024!Barry’s memories about Tracy, or else he’d never have been caught in her trap).

So it’s logical to assume that Savitar is going to be a time remnant of Barry, so that two version of Barry exist simultaneously in 2017. What sort of time remnant sort of remains to be seen. Is he a time traveller who comes back to 2017 or is he a time remnant created by Barry to stop Savitar, ultimately becoming what he was supposed to stop.

More disturbing still… Savitar could be ‘our’ Barry. And the Barry that continues on as Barry could be the time remnant. They’re indistinguishable from one another, right? Maybe. 

So that’s part of the how. And the when is “the near future”, like before the end of this season for sure, and likely right before (or right after?) Iris’s death. Because that “it’s you or me” thing he said, through Julian that one episode a while back. Savitar’s existence is, in some way, predicated on Iris dying. She lives, Savitar isn’t created.

And it can’t just be the grief of losing her. We’ve seen what that grief does - it leads to 2024!Barry and his bad haircut. 

Originally posted by theflashdaily

(this dude isn’t Savitar.)


So what is it that really causes Savitar, causes any version of Barry, to become… that? That’s the million dollar question. 

We’ve got some clues but I don’t have a fully formed theory on it yet. I think (hope?) it should deal with the Philosopher’s Stone in some way, but I don’t have a handle on how yet. 

It should involve him being trapped in the speedforce. But trapped as Savitar, in that suit, like Tracy plans to make? Or trapped before that, as just ‘Barry’, without the suit yet? Like he made that suit himself, right? He couldn’t have made it while trapped in the speedforce.

My current guess is that Barry makes a time remnant of himself to take Jay’s spot in the speedforce. That version is stuck reliving/seeing Iris’s death over and over and over again, as his worst moment ever. His personal hell.

(Or maybe not even for Jay. Maybe he just ends up trapped in there in some other way).

That Barry goes insane, over time. He’s distorted by Iris’s death. And… he starts to erode. He starts to slip into non-existence. Because he only exists if Savitar kills Iris. And if he doesn’t become Savitar, Iris doesn’t die.

He’s degrading into nothing in hell, and he’s already lived his own worst memories. The other him (our Barry) is living on in reality without him. Without this pain. Taking all the joy of life (and squandering it).

Remnant Barry tries to escape. I’m not sure how, but he’ll have to use the philosopher’s stone in some way to accomplish that, even for short periods of time. I don’t know how he gets/makes the suit, but it makes sense that he needs it if his whole existence has started to erode (maybe there’s no getting back the parts of himself that he lost? And maybe that explains the scarring?). He burns too hot without the suit, generates too much speed force; he’s still part of it, after all, still tied to it. Maybe it’s just the suit that even allows him to briefly escape the speedforce in the first place? 

He becomes the God of Motion. Over time and into other earths, killing other speedsters (Jay had heard of him, after all), taking from them to rebuild himself from the erosion. To exist.

But it’s not enough.

To exist - to stop eroding - he has to kill Iris. Then he can be. She’s already dead to him. He’s not really a fully-fledged person anymore, he doesn’t have the capacity for all those human emotions, not after the erosion he’s undergone. He can’t love, anymore.

And so he arrives in 2017, and sets these events in motion. This is all ancient history to him anyway.

I don't want to anger you. I know it's 2017 already but will there be any continuation of the comic? I really love the series but I also care about you, the artist. If you wouldn't like to continue please let us know. - A recent reader who have became your fan.

Hi there, I want to let you know I’m not angry. Messages like this do not anger me. Anyone who is upset when people are asking - are you alive? Is this a thing still? are missing the point of these messages. I get you. I am grateful for you. You still care, like I still care. I really want to continue. I keep half-ass hashing this out all over the place so I’ll post this most complete explanation (that I can manage) and see if it helps.


I’m not a young person. Like, I am not in high school. I’m not in college. I am an adjunct professor teaching at college at a time in my life when I should have a nest egg and not like… this horror. My students literally murder the small buoyant heart of joy in me. I’ve been pretty depressed since my Dad died in 2008, I immediately lost my career in video games right after that so I had to move home to a job teaching where I am paid literally poverty level. Be kind to your adjuncts they do more for less for god knows why. I don’t know why. Anyway, the comic was started because I started to feel so scared that I was going to die before I ever made anything good. Or complete. Or just… Good. That sick upset tension boiled up in me and out came a comic that I really love that is a lot of effort to make look the way it looks. I don’t keep myself to a PERSONAL STYLE instead I want to craft the style to best match the story. My process is atrocious but I can’t imagine it looking any other way than it looks. I want to be able to pare it down but when I think about it I just… can’t. So time. Time is a thing. 


By the time I am done having any joy in art literally murdered out of me by my students and the administration, I have no ability to get much done. When I fell off the wagon really bad was around an anniversary of my Dad’s death and I’ve been having a lot of trouble getting back to a good state of mind. I don’t send letters to friends anymore. I don’t do much but keep my head above the proverbial water anymore. I think about how I need to get going on something or I’m going to die before I get anything accomplished. I don’t communicate my issues because I am very much someone who has always dealt with their own problems, etc. themselves because I learned at a very young age that sharing your woes means people discard you. That’s not some candy-ass cry for help that is just my experiences and why I am how I am now and why I am always so cagey when it comes to explaining why I am not getting pages done.


I love what I do. I put a lot of time and thought and effort into it. I am positive there are people out there who could do it in 1/100th the time on a schedule and get a page out twice weekly. I don’t have that situation. Even if I was 100% I am currently living my low-paid ass at home rent free working it off helping out around the house. I run errands, drive around, keep up with chores, etc. etc. My mom keeps breaking bones in her body. It’s upsetting. But really my support structure is me and I am just tapped out right now.


Teaching is literally the worst. I’m so saturated in apathy and people who would rather do ANYTHING to get out of doing what they are asked to do that it boggles my mind. Why take an elective if you’re not interested? I’m not going to just hand you and A because you signed up. None of this is y’all’s problem. It’s all my problem. And I am working on trying to get things better handled so I can get back to making pages. Drawing replies. DRAWING. FOR ME. NOT AS A DEMO. I AM going to get back to work on the comic. I WILL. Nobody may still be around when I do. But… I started this for me. I will always share it with all y’all. It’s just taking me a lot more time than I could have thought. But it is what it is…


Sorry if this is a bit much. This is why I keep a lid on it. But legit - thank you for caring enough to drop a note. And that goes out to every single person who has who I may not have even replied to. I hear you (read you!) and I appreciate y’all so much.

Even Nightwing Isn’t Safe?

Y’know, I ranted and raved about what Marvel did to Captain America and (potentially) Magneto (I don’t care if it’s just a cover or whatever; it’s tasteless bullshit and Marvel deserves all the crap they get).  And fuck it all, I’ve gotta do it again.

Fuck, I feel drained.

I can’t even work up rage like I did for the last two.  I am worn as hell from all this shit.  First Marvel takes a character created by two Jewish men (two Jewish men who served in World War II no less) and makes him into a Nazi.  Make all the excuses you want for Hydra; they’re fucking Nazis.  Then they tease that Magneto might be joining Hydra as well.  Magneto.  Probably the most famous Jewish holocaust survivor in all of fiction.  With two children who also have Rromani heritage (who ALSO joined Hydra in the MCU because WHAT THE HELL MARVEL).

And now DC, oh why DC.  Marvel’s sales are going down the drain because of their shit and you had the chance to merrily spring ahead by learning lessons and doing the opposite.  Rebirth was going so well.  You cleared out the muck from the New52 and fans rejoiced.  I personally love Greg Rucka’s Wonder Woman.  You had the chance to be a light in the darkness.  But alas, you had to fuck it up.

I don’t care if it’s just an Elseworlds miniseries.  I don’t care if it’s “exploring moral grayness” (really?  if there was ever a black and white issue it’s fucking fascism; fascism is bad; done).  You take one of the purest, nicest heroes in comics, you take one of the most well-known Rromani characters in fiction, you take one of the most popular and beloved superheroes of all time, and you make him a murderous fascist for a cheap attention ploy.

Have you not been on the internet once since May of last year?

I wish I could appeal more to your sense of morality, but I doubt that’ll work since nothing any of us has screamed at Marvel’s had much of an effect (it just seems to have made a certain writer smugger than ever), so let’s just stick to money because I know for certain you care about that.  People are pissed at Marvel, and rightfully so.  Their sales are going down.  And no, it’s not because of “forced diversity.”  Their diverse comics like Ms. Marvel and so on are some of their comics that are still doing well, because the fans LIKE those books.  They don’t like all of Marvel’s bullshit.

And you, just when you were looking up, pull this shit.  This is not going to go well.  Oh, sure, you’ll get a few buys from the people who eat up controversy, but this is not going to end well.  We are sick of all the “give it a chance” shit that only ends up biting us in the ass and our money’s already gone.  Barely anyone can afford to buy that many comics anymore, especially ones we’re wary are gonna piss us off.  This is why so many just wait for the trades.  Comics are, what, four bucks a pop?  For like twenty pages of content?  In an age where you can buy a full-length novel online or in a thrift shop for 99 cents?  If I’m going to be shelling out that much, you can bet your ass I’m only shelling it out for something I want to do well.  No one can buy the entire product of a company on allowance money anymore.  No one can do that with actual money-from-a-steady-job money anymore.  We can only get what we really want, and we’re not going to support shit product out of brand loyalty.  We’re only going to support, and we can only afford to support, what we actually want.  And sure, a few people want to support controversy and internet firestorms, but most want good stories that respect their favorite characters and their histories.  The New52 spat on loved characters and wrecked their histories, and it went down in flames.  Don’t ruin your fresh start.

Please.  Comic fans have had enough.  We’re not just being pedantic assholes.  We do want you to do well, if only so that we can see more of the characters we love.  We just don’t want to spend our money on comics that insult us and the characters we relate to.  We don’t want to be called ungrateful jerks for not wanting to give money to works that insult us and the characters we relate to.  We don’t want to see our favorite characters turned into the antithesis of all that they are and all that they were created to represent.

Come on.  Richard Grayson, the most famous Rromani hero in the DC roster, the adopted son of Bruce Wayne, the first Robin, the first leader of the Teen Titans, the protector of Bludhaven, the older brother to Jason Todd and Tim Drake and Cassandra Caine and Stephanie Brown and Damien Wayne, the guy who idolizes Superman, Nightwing is not someone that fans want to see made into a fascist murderer.  If we want to see fascism, we will watch the news, there’s more than enough to go around.  That’s not what we come to superheroes for.  We don’t come to see our heroes become the awfulness we see in the world everyday.  We come to see our heroes look that awfulness straight in the eye and punch it in the face.  For just a moment, for twenty pages of sequential art, we can feel some relief from the stress of something we feel we can’t fight ourselves, not yet.  We feel that there is something to be done, that awfulness can be fought, so long as there are people willing to do it.

Just let us have one moment of peace.

Curious what you think of upcoming SDCC. Your ECCC experience seems similar to what we are going through now. GA/LA kicked our ass. I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure I remember you saying you didn't even want to go to ECCC and wished you could sell your tickets after that S/MM mess. Then you went and came back super confident SC are together. I don't think it's a matter of SC playing us either. You can better judge in person what's more genuine vs looking at any pic-that's of S/MM & S/C p1/2

P2/2 I think if we see genuine SC moments at SDCC that will prove more than any pic. I just hope we give it a chance because the only difference in GA/LA/ECCC and now is that people are more sick of the BTS bull crap. But events now–leading up to SDCC is exactly like what happened before. It’s not any more S/MM official. It’s just how people are looking at the same assumption. It’ll be interesting to see how people react to it all. What do you think about it all considering your con experience?


To be fair, the LA/GA shit happened like literally a week before ECCC. We still have a solid 2+ months before SDCC. Not to say more shit won’t happen but that’s plenty of time for people to move past last week, if they choose to. But yes I spent a couple days hardcore regretting my decision to go to ECCC and then I got there and I genuinely don’t regret it one bit to this day. 

As for me, personally, this week/few days of not paying attention to or at least not blogging about OL/SamCait has felt FANTASTIC and I plan on continuing with it. It’s been incredibly freeing and quite honestly making coming back to shipping like I was before seriously not an enticing prospect. It’ll be really interesting to see who’s still around come July. I’m sure many of us will follow along but it’ll be nowhere near what it was the last time they were at Comic Con or even at ECCC. I think, this time around, maybe opinions haven’t necessarily changed but the mood has changed and nobody is finding any of this as fun anymore. My basic opinions on all of this and why it’s happening actually haven’t shifted that much. I’m just really, really tired of it all happening to begin with and don’t feel like playing along anymore. So it’ll be interesting to see how long this current mood lasts. Personally, I can’t see myself being all that interested in any of this come July but who knows. 

anonymous asked:

AH! <3. oh my gosh. I love each art that you produce, like ALL OF THEM, but currently going to scream at you for the recent one of the au!ABoT. Do you have more details about the year long imprisonment for Reigen? When did he first learn about Mob? How did he get scruffed up in the face? How did he know about the blood activation of the tags? If you don't have time to answer, no worries, I get it. Thanks again for everything!!!

ALRIGHT ALRIGHT, now that I’ve posted the rest of my draws from this AU, I’m gonna blab about a shitton of things. Strap urself in, ur gettin more than u bargained for.

The linchpin of this au is based on two points:

- Mogami is someone who likes to ‘play with their food’. (read: testing the knife slicing reigen’s fingers in chap 8)

- “It’s easier to possess someone while they’re in shock.”

   This is why Reigen knows about Mob in this AU. Mogami lets Reigen’s consciousness through just enough to show him that he’s being used to keep a kid in the basement. Mogami would show Reigen smth like, having a conversation about Mob’s barrier, using Reigen’s mouth to talk to him through the shut basement door. //Mob himself is completely oblivious to Reigen, only ever sensing Mogami’s aura, and not much else.

   The more emotionally shocked/unstable the host, the easier it is to possess them, and the stronger the hold is. And for Reigen, nothing is worse than knowing that his body has been used to dispose of Tetsuo, and to keep Mob isolated and falsely afraid of himself in this hell house. Plus he’s basically powerless to stop it, only ever fully in control of himself when he’s chained to the bed, Mogami’s corpse only a few feet away.

   Does Mogami need to do this in order to possess Reigen? no. Does he simply entertain himself doing it? motherfucker. Aside from cutting Reigen’s hair and shaving his beard to keep up the barest of appearances for the store clerks, Mogami’s care of Reigen’s body is about the same as his care for Mob’s body.

   Long year for salt man and Mob alike. Reeeeeal long year.

Some other thoughts no one brought up, but I’ve considered it often so here it is anyways:

- How come it takes so long to get through the post if the wood is old?

- Why does Mogami let Reigen saw all the way through it?

   All of the other posts on the bed have notches on them. Mogami would let Reigen get to a certain point in the wood, then move him to a different one. Again, Mogami likes playing with his food. He’s entertained by Reigen’s despair in having to start over, that he may never succeed. 

   Reigen’s on the 4th notch in this comic, which means Mogami can’t rotate them anymore. So Reigen gets through. But-! This is still allowed by Mogami, who still intends to use this to fuck with him. Like “alright let’s watch this play out a bit, then i’ll just swoop in and possess it and attach the chain somewhere else, that’ll really be fun.”

   Here, Reigen literally does not know about the blood activation of his tags. He’s just so desperate to get Mob and Get Out that he writes the tag with the only thing he has immediately available.

   In the latest comic, Reigen’s in bad shape. Like, hovering around death’s door kind of shape (which is why he can see Tetsuo and catch him up on the situation, mind ya). It’s not explicitly shown, but before the placebo effect takes place for Mob, Reigen’s chest gets the shred treatment a la chap 9 spirit tags. Reigen just bears through it because he knows that he has to convince Mob that he’s okay for the barrier to actually do no harm. And he succeeds. The ‘scruffiness’ you’re seeing in his face later is because he’s pushing his body to every limit possible.

   Originally, I was gonna have Reigen reach the station and turn himself in for murder, but sorry salt man I changed my mind. You can’t turn yourself in for murdering Tetsuo if you are Tetsuo, who can competently explain the situation to everyone in the force. Like the only reason the police will be okay in this AU is because they Trust Tetsuo, and because Isa’s a force to be reckoned with (even an emotionally devastated Isa).

The irony about all of this… Mogami killing Tetsuo in such an awful way, torturing Reigen with the knowledge that he’s holding a child hostage, the decision to play mind games with him instead of just chaining him to something he can’t grind through… Is exactly what leads to them all getting free, getting some semblance of closure.

What does sans remembering Gaster have to do with remembering resets? The fact that there's stuff in the game that implies a strong connection between Sans and W.D. Gaster, along with the "don't forget" note thing, would also imply that Sans still knows and remembers Gaster. Sans not remembering is just weird and doesn't feel right. Alphys shouldn't know Gaster is anyway, because she wasn't hired until long after Gaster's dissapearance.

The link between Sans and Gaster has merit and some evidence to make it a viable theory, I’m not saying it doesn’t, but those bits of evidence are not conclusive. Sans and Gaster MIGHT have known each other through work, seeing as how it’s implied (granted, very heavily implied) that Sans was a professional scientist at one point. But did Sans ever work for the Royal Scientist? Moreover, did he ever work for Gaster?

We don’t know. There’s nothing in the game that can give conclusive evidence that he did or didn’t. But it’s a great idea and headcanon, which is probably why a lot of people have played with the idea in comics and fics. Is it hard and fast canon, tho? No. Is it plausible to the point where if it were confirmed in canon it would make sense? Yes. But it would also make as much sense if he never had contact with Gaster. Because there’s nothing that can conclusively state that Sans and Gaster ever had a connection.

The thing about the picture is, the text does NOT say it’s a picture of 3 skeletons, one of which you have never seen before. It doesn’t even say it’s a picture of skeletal beings. It says, and I quote

It’s a poorly drawn picture of three smiling people. Written on it… “don’t forget”

Could it be Sans, Papyrus, and Gaster? Yes. Could it also be Gaster’s followers? Yes. Could it be three people that are never featured in the game and just exist to give San’s vague as hell backstory some happiness that isn’t currently in his life? Also yes.

Also, the “connection” between Sans and Gaster on the basis of them both being skeletons is… tenuous. I will agree there’s a lot of evidence that Gaster is associated with Wingdings, which lends credence to him being a skeleton. But even if there just so happened to be a third font-based skeleton, who’s to say all three knew each other? We have hard, concrete, immovable evidence that Sans and Papyrus know each other and have a connection. We have zero hard, concrete, immovable evidence that they know and have a connection to Gaster.

But it’s a neat idea. And lots of neat fanworks have come out based on this neat idea (Handplates by @zarla-s, The Sons of Gaster by @sansybones, aspects of Aftertale by @loverofpiggies and The Thought by @tratserenoyreve and many, many more)

I don’t know why it’s been decided that so much of Sans’ backstory is concretely decided in-game. We know next to nothing about it except at some point in time he was watching readings of different timelines, and he saw proof of an anomaly in the readings. Was he a scientist? There’s a lot of evidence that supports that theory. Was he, specifically, a quantum physicist? Likely, given what irl quantum physicists touch on, but can’t say for sure. But for the story of this comic, I went with it.

As for Sans remembering resets, again, evidence from in-game suggests that he doesn’t remember them, or at least doesn’t remember 99.9% of what happened in them. He reads faces. He has odd feelings, but so do a lot of characters you talk to if you do a soft reset.

Sans definitely has a higher awareness of what could be going on, but even in a genocide route, he doesn’t say “Aha! Murderer! You have the power to time travel! Have at ye!”

He just recognizes that the human is bad news, and tries to intimidate them out of being bad news.And he recognizes that the “human” isn’t a human. But, then again, so does Asgore, so that’s not a trait exclusive to Sans that makes him super special awesome.

I love it when canon details don’t exist in the way they don’t exist for Sans and Gaster. There’s evidence to support many different readings of the characters, but it’s the fact that NONE of them are canon that gives the fandom a lot to work with. It’s when fandoms start taking that vagueness and potential and turning it into fanon, and then trying to fight anyone who doesn’t want to use those non-canonical details that makes it exhausting.

So, it’s a good thing that Sans is my favorite character. Because I might’ve given up on this fandom awhile ago if he weren’t, seeing all that the fandom has done to him.

But it’s why I try to do my research of the game so thoroughly. Because I want this comic to mostly reflect canon portrayals…. as best as I’m trying, anyway. And where I cannot follow canon anymore, I choose what headcanons I want to fill in. Good thing there’s so many wonderful ideas to choose from. And good thing zero of them are canon.

How did the first meeting between Alistair and Tabris go?

Not particularly well, actually. Tiny elf crammed with rage and ready to kill any and all humans, not a solid foundation for interpersonal relationships.
