The longest video of Michael drinking water ever featuring me yelling things like “make him stop” and “why is he doing this to me” to Olivia plus bonus cuteness at the end and also Calum talking and being cute throughout.
My universe is you, my entire world is you. All I wanted was to keep you by my side and spend the rest of my life knowing that you’ll be here…with me. But the world was cruel. Now I’m gonna go and take you back. No matter what happens
I’m going to take you back.
Sorey/Mikleo Is Romantic and Canon, the Cross-Tales Edition
Originally, I was going to wait on doing this until
after I’d finished my NG+ play through since I’d spread out my
original play through over 6 months (so my memory of mid-game
SoreMiku is a little fuzzy, while early game and end game are like,
crystal clear, lol), but since I’ve been seeing a few “SoreMiku
is platonic” or “they’re just bros” and similar reblogs and
comments, I figure now is as good a time as any to write this:
SoreMiku is a romantic and canon ship, the cross Tales of Series edition. Also
known as: “And you wonder why a lot of us think SoreMiku is romantic
when (insert other couple here)
gets to do this.”
Cutting for length (this monster wall of text was nearly 3 pages long in Word), spoilers
everywhere for other games:
I get that people love that miracles quote from The Pandorica Opens, but in context the whole point of that line is that the Doctor has never seen such a miracle and still hasn’t because Rory’s return is actually a trap. They’re beautiful words, sure, but also fairly empty.
How do you perceive Kisa and Fushimi's relationship in the past to be like now that you've read the short story?
Well first, can I say I actually
really liked that the All Characters story was from Kisa’s POV, like
we see so little of her even in LSW that I feel like it’s hard to get
a read on her (which works on its own though, when you think about
it, because Kisa thinks of Fushimi as ‘Niki’s son’ and so does
Fushimi, he doesn’t even consider how much of his mother he might
have in him because she treats him as if they’re not even really
related). I think the description of her own type of ‘genius’ is
interesting – where Niki is a born genius Kisa achieves hers
through hard work, constantly making use of her own strengths in
order to elevate herself. I think that puts Fushimi squarely in the
middle as far as what he’s received from each of his parents, he
definitely has some of Niki’s natural genius but he works hard too,
even though he tends to act lazy and unmotivated Fushimi’s also the
guy who’s still awake long after everyone else at Scepter 4 has gone
to bed, working on things that technically aren’t even part of his
job. I don’t think he even realizes that part of him comes from Kisa
too, I feel like Fushimi’s a bit more focused on the 'natural genius’
of Niki that he feels like he can’t even hope to duplicate and
considers himself a failure due to that – even post-ROK in the LSW
manga epilogue, when Yata tells him he’s not like his dad Fushimi’s
first reaction is still to assume that Yata means “not a genius”
(rather than what Yata actually means, which is “not a piece of
Then there’s that whole
discussion between Niki and Kisa and that does make me even more
curious about how Fushimi and Kisa’s relationship ended up being the
way it is. On the bad side, the fact that she and Niki spend half
this conversation talking about their son while never once actually
calling him by name is just so painful and such a perfect
illustration of how much they fail as parents, Niki only calling
Fushimi by his mocking little 'monkey’ nickname and Kisa calling him
'that boy’ as though he’s someone else’s child, or a stranger. But
then there’s that little weird moment when Niki mocks Kisa for not
knowing how Saruhiko’s doing: “How cold. Even though you’re his
mama.” The thing I find interesting here is, from everything
we know about Niki he doesn’t make shots that he doesn’t intend to
hit – that is, he wouldn’t be taunting Kisa with such words if he
didn’t think they were going to faze her. And she does pull an
uncomfortable face in return, which makes me wonder if Kisa did, at
some point in time, really think of herself as Saruhiko’s mother and
was happy about it. The later description about how Niki always tries
to drag her into his world makes me wonder if maybe right after she
had the child Kisa was actually interested in him and wanted to be
his mother, but then as time went on she felt like by allowing
herself to love her son she would somehow end up being dragged back
into Niki’s world, her own chosen path becoming tangled by his and
the only way to really cut herself off from him entirely was to throw
the child away too. So she tells herself that Fushimi is only 'Niki’s
son’ and acts cold to him, but there’s still a part of her that did
at one point think of herself as his mother and the reminder that she
chose to throw that away is uncomfortable for her.
The comment she makes about
Fushimi being more like her is interesting too, like look at how
quickly Kisa refutes Niki’s words about Saruhiko being more
like him. For a woman who doesn’t seem to give a crap about her kid
and who probably hasn’t spent much time with him she’s very quick and
certain in her reply that Saruhiko resembles her more than Niki. At
the beginning of the story it’s noted that Kisa has “superior
knowledge of humans,” presumably suggesting that she’s good at
reading people (something Fushimi seems to have somewhat picked up as
well, while he’s terrible at reading situations involving himself he
tends to be good at analyzing other situations and other people’s
motivations) so even with her limited contact with Fushimi she at
least grasped enough to realize that he’s not Niki. Which actually
makes it a little more frustrating that she still treats her son the
way she does, like she’s clearly not afraid of him becoming another
Niki but she still chooses to treat him like a stranger rather than
her son. Actually if we want to take a particularly dim view of
Kisa’s intentions, one could argue that the reason she ignores
Fushimi is because since he’s more like her than Niki she
would rather leave him to Niki in her place. Like if she stayed with
Niki she would be pulled off her chosen path by his attitude, dragged
into his world with him, so in order to avoid that she leaves her
child there instead knowing that he’d be affected by Niki the same
way but choosing to sacrifice her innocent kid for the sake of her
own ambitions. That she doesn’t try to reach out to Fushimi after
Niki’s death despite her words here makes me think that even though
she feels like he really is more her child than Niki’s she’s also
already given up on being Fushimi’s mother and doesn’t intend to
start now, she may defend him from Niki’s words but she has no desire
to give him any of the affection or love he’s clearly been starved
I’m so not ready to leave America. Especially since I didn’t even see @bext-k
Legit main reason I wanted to come here tbh. But I did see a pride flag! We never see them in Australia. It made me abnormally happy.
I paid all 3 of my hospital bills and I need to say thank you once again to everyone.
Thank you so much to those who reblogged, messaged me encouraging things, commissioned me, gave my art a like, and overwhelmed me with positive things.
I cannot begin to explain how horrible of a financial situation i was in, and because of everyone’s help im no longer in any negatives. Things are manageable and I can breath. It means so much to me honestly because becoming a fanart commissioner(sp?) has changed my life for the better??? I know that sentence is weird but the people ive met here are friends im going to keep forever. You all have given me good things to look forward to.
Commissions will stay the same price for the remainder of the month!
As always please look forward to more works and ill get around to posting them on this blog soon! Life has kept me really busy!
(I have exactly 8 dollars left over and im going to get a pizza pie with my cousins tomorrow. Im so excited. For once I get to treat them!!)
(Also I have news to announce on the 6th of August AH)
HOLY SHIT IT’S ACTUALLY BEEN A WHOLE YEAR ALREADY WHAT IS LIFE? WHO KNEW LOVING A SHOW WOULD LEAD US TO THIS!!
DEAN, OH MY DEAN, HOW FAR WE’VE COME <3
but seriously who would’ve thought that a few posts and loving your amazing writing (*cough* Emma *cough* purgatory *cough* THAT BEAUTIFUL SAM POV THAT MADE ME REALLY TALK TO YOU AND IS STILL A FAV *cough cough cough*) and a gif war would lead us here? i mean…just like dean and cas we’ve grown super close and i barely remember not having you in my life now :D and it’s only been a year woah!
okay i’m going a little crazy (wink wink ^) on the gifs here, but being serious now. When we first met I had just started living alone and working a customer service job I HATED, and I didn’t really have any friends, let alone ones who talked to me often. Going to break and seeing a new gif from you in response made me laugh when I was frustrated, and I was much more relaxed plotting what exactly would be my response when I finally made it home.
Then later when we started actually messaging each other and it felt less like “look here’s someone to play flirt with and live out some (PG) destiel wishes” and more “look, you have a friend now!” Talking back and forth and me teasing you that because you were studying law you should’ve been Sam and your very emphatic response and proof why you were Dean ;) Truth was I just wanted to be Dean because I was always Dean in rp but now I’m so glad to be Cas with you :* And then! Especially when we bonded over Sarah, because THAT was the catalyst for a number of jokes and opinions with the two of us :)
I seriously go back and read these all the time! And then we started emailing and literally talking about whatever….remember when I sent you my OCD planning of the storage unit I was moving everything into? I executed it perfectly btw ;)
And then! Getting the opportunity to find a way to let you watch the season finale for the first time ever as it premiers? Honestly I was so happy just to see your excitement, I would’ve still been happy if the ending we feared had happened after all.
And now we have some more wonderful friends and a skype group where we talk almost every day and play cards against humanity and have movie nights and have even written real life letters to each other (still can’t believe you love letters as much as i do!)…and I could not be happier to have you as my Dean…and as my best friend. Love you girly <3
