i have yet to read the kill order

anonymous asked:

I know this really doesn't have to do with anything but I just wanted to share with SOMEONE what I've plotted. I'm making my girlfriend read the throne of glass series BUT she's reading the Assassin's Blade first. She already ships Celaena and Sam so much and she keeps asking if they get together and so forth... she's going to kill me at the end of this book xD

Well first off yay! that you’re getting her to read the books! I hope she loves them! But oh no that poor sweet summer child has no idea what’s in store for her lol! My heart breaks just thinking about it. I seriously sigh sadly at any mention of my sweet Sam’s name. And as much as I prefer reading things in chronological order I’m sooo glad I read TAB last!! I would have been tearing up at any mention of him in TOG otherwise. I mean the scene at his grave killed me even though I wasn’t attached yet! 😭😭 So are you going to tell her or just let her take the journey herself? 

Imagine #17 Peter Maximoff (Request)

Requested by @fragcc: Could you do a Peter x human reader? Like, they’d meet at library and become good friends bc they like the same stuff and then after some time they’d start dating and he’d confess to her that he’s a mutant but she doesn’t care bc it’s her love… =]

“You’ve got to be kidding me.”, you muttered under your breath as your eyes fell on the empty space in the shelf, where your favourite book was supposed to be. Some idiot had been hogging it for the past two months and you had been counting the days until you would finally be able to read it again – for about the 56th time. And now here you were, on the day it was supposed to be back, in front of the shelf where it was supposed to be, and yet… Right at that moment, your glare could have killed a man.

And yes, you could have just bought a copy of your own, but that wasn’t, what this was about, you insisted. This was about order, structure. You wanted this copy and you wanted it now.

Keep reading

Gary Oldman (Sirius Black) actually came around the next morning, because we lived near each other at the time, and he said, ‘Have you seen the new book? We’ve got a lot of work to do, mate.’ He was quite happy, and I didn’t know how to break it to him. So I said, ‘Have you actually read it yet, Gaz?’ ‘No, just clicked through it.’ A few days later I’m in makeup and he comes in, and sits down, and goes ‘Have you heard the news?’ ‘What’s that, Gaz?’ ‘It’s terrible fucking news.’ ‘What is it?’ ‘You know how everyone is talking about who dies in book five? It’s fucking me! This woman puts the poor bastard in prison for 12 years, brings him back for a few scenes, and then she kills him!’

hey i saw u were doing killjoys headcannons and I had this theory in my head about Korse. Theres a bit somewhere in the Nanana video where Korse is clutching Party's head and screaming at him, which isn't nice, but hey, hes not trying to murder him, and then there's the end bit where he tells them to keep running when he could of easily just killed them. This makes me think that Korse had a lot of run ins and fights with the killjoys and has grown to like/admire them. idk thought u might like

hmm that’s kinda interesting. personally, I think that the Fabulous Killjoys (esp Party) and Korse have a kind of Tom-and-Jerry-esque relarionship. but like darker and with more attempted murder and codependency. 

like I figure that as the Fab Four grew in notoriety, they ended up encountering Korse more and more frequently, so they kind of began this weird, dangerous relationship

Korse is fascinated with the killjoys, because he is absolutely incapable of understanding them, and what they stand for, and why they do what they do– he’s been so infected by BLI through the pills and the conditioning that he’s really unable to comprehend them. but for some reason, he WANTS TO. he hates them, he despises them, he’s loyal to BLI, but he WANTS TO KNOW WHAT MAKES KILLJOYS TICK. he wants to take them apart and look inside. literally. 

but he focuses more on Party just because. Party’s loud. and colorful. and he puts himself out there. Korse has come to think of Party as kind of a symbol, a representation of all the killjoys. so he focuses on the Fab Four.

now Party– he’s just an attention whore. he knows he’s got Horse’s focus, and he’ll be damned if he’s not going to exploit that. he’s a tease, he’s reckless, he gets a rush from every encounter with Korse. he thrives off of the idea of rebelling against BLI (“but i believe we’re the enemy”)– it’s all he knows, all he has to hold onto anymore– and, much like Party is a symbol of the killjoys to Korse, to Party, Korse is a symbol BLI and everything about BC that Party hates. he’s Korse’s enemy, he’s BLI’s enemy, he is THE enemy. it gives him something to believe in.

it’s weird, it’s unhealthy, but what isn’t, in the Zones?


and as for the whole not-killing thing– I figure that’s probably just something like Korse’s orders were to capture them alive, or that he was supposed to focus on securing the Girl’s capture. mostly, though, I just chalk it up to “It Makes For A Better Music Video Than Killing Them Would” and move on. my headcanons aren’t all necessarily canon-compliant! and they mostly focus on life before the videos and the comics, because I haven’t read the comics yet (whoops) so I have like no idea what’s going on with that whole thing

Force Bonds, Sever Force Abilities and Wounding the Force: How it all ties everything together from Kylo Ren and Rey, Ben’s fall to darkness and Snoke’s Goals

I’d first like to thank @loveyournightmare​ and @theboywhocan11​ for the insightful discussions the past few hours, as it led me to delve further into research and thinking, hence the creation of this theory.

Be prepared for a long read.

Before reading this, it would be best to refer you to the following for relevant information:

The Jedi Massacre and the Jedi Killer <–PRIORITY READING

Reylo Meta Library 2.0 (see FORCE BOND)

For this theory, I have condensed certain aspects of those previous theories and have divided it into parts:

I.  The Jedi Massacre and the Jedi Killer

Let us begin with the purported Jedi Massacre. In this theory, which we will now coin the Sever Force Theory, Ben Solo does not actually kill his fellow padawans in Luke’s Academy. What he does is something worse: he uses the Sever Force Ability on everyone in Luke’s Academy, stripping them of their powers. To further expound, Sever Force is the ability to essentially cut a Jedi’s connection to the Force, thereby rendering said Jedi powerless. And so, having sealed his fellow Force users to a fate worst than death, Ben Solo gains the monicker ‘Jedi Killer’.

In the most extreme cases, using the Sever Force ability can actually create a Wound in the Force.

Think about Jedis as extensions of the Force. If you cut them off from the Force, that’s essentially amputating limbs of the Force, thereby wounding it. If this theory proves true, then Ben created a massive wound in the Force by severing connections of several Jedis at once from the Force.

It could very well be that Ben even severed his Uncle Luke’s connection to the Force, and so the once most powerful Jedi in the galaxy is now in essence ‘impotent’. This explains why Leia, for all her Force sensitivity, could no longer sense her brother and needed a map to find him. The same goes for Kylo Ren and Snoke.

Losing his Jedi powers may also be why Luke went into hiding, and why he searched for the First Jedi Temple. It could be in the hopes of finding a way to re-establish his connection with the Force, which is actually possible if you’re in an area that has a high concentration of Force energy (Kyle Katarn went to the Valley of the Jedi to re-establish his severed Force connection).

II.  Reylo Force Bond

Now, enter the purported Force Bond between Kylo Ren and Rey. It’s natural to assume that upon the discovery of this Force Bond, Kylo and Rey will be very confused when they could suddenly communicate with each other across vast distances, see visions of each other and feel each other’s emotions. Perhaps Rey will consult with Luke, who will consult with the Force Ghosts of Obi Wan, Yoda and Anakin (if rumors are true), and that’s how we come to learn of the Force Bond. Kylo and Rey will of course want the bond severed, and since there are only three ways to sever it (death, change of feelings/kinship from both parties and Sever Force ability), this could be the reason why Kylo was allowed by Luke to go alone to Ach-To, in order to sever the bond he had formed with Rey. It helps that in Ep7, it’s established that Rey does not want any part of being trained in the Force. I think she may very well agree to losing her Force abilities, especially since Luke won’t be able to teach her at all, what with his lack of Jedi powers.

Now, there will be concerns that Kylo may very well kill his uncle, but I don’t think so. Luke, without his powers, poses no threat. In fact, Kylo Ren will need what little knowledge his uncle has of the Force Bond in order to effectively sever the one he has with Rey.

In comes more complications. I will be discussing the dynamic of Meetra Surik and Darth Traya/Kreia, as this is the most credible source we have yet of Force Bonds vs Sever Force Ability.

From my what I read up on Meetra Surik and Darth Traya/Reia (they had a very powerful Force Bond which Surik wanted to sever, and Surik was talented in Sever Force Ability), it seems Surik was actually not able to effectively or voluntarily sever the bond through the Sever Force Ability. The only reason she was able to do so was due to collateral damage. She had to cut off her own connections to the Force in order to protect herself and in so doing, rendered herself powerless, and her bond with Darth Traya/Kreia severed. Then, she was able to re-establish her connection to the Force, gaining back her powers as well as the bond she had with Traya/Kreia.

Later on however, during her final duel with Darth Traya/Kreia, Surik managed to sever the bond she had with her old master, but there doesn’t seem to be an indication that she used the Sever Force ability; only that she cut off her former master’s hand, and thereby ended their Force Bond. In this case, I do believe what happened was not the use of Sever Force, but it was the change of kinship/feelings between Meetra Surik and Darth Traya/Kreia. Cutting off her master’s hand was symbolic of the change of kinship/feelings between both parties, forever cementing them as adversaries instead of the former master/apprentice they once were.

Going back to the change of kinship/feelings as a way to remove a Force Bond, this can only happen if the feelings of the two individuals had when they first established the bond change at the same time (To break a bond, your feelings would have to change [sic] – Wookiepedia). In the case of Traya/Kreia and Surik, they established the bond as master/apprentice with sympathetic feelings, and ended it when they became adversaries with little to no sympathy for each other.

Applying to Kylo Ren and Rey, if we are to look further into the novels, their Force Bond was formed during a time Kylo Ren was drawn to Rey, and Rey was drawn to Kylo Ren. Their Force Bond was born at a time when they were drawn to each other, despite their status as adversaries. And by the looks of things, it doesn’t seem like those feelings of being drawn to one another despite their own misgivings will change anytime soon (light and dark, opposites attract), so this method of breaking the bond is out of the question.

Kylo’s Sever Force ability will then be the only course of action (Death is out of the question of course, especially since even with Death, they would feel that void forever). But what if in trying to use the Sever Force on someone as powerful as Rey, he is slowly creating another Wound in the Force? This could be what happens in the rumoured Ach-to Hut scene: Kylo Ren, trying to use the Sever Force to break his bond with Rey, only to have the hut disintegrate, and an overwhelming void come over them, then Luke (or even the Force Ghosts if they’re present) shouting for Kylo to stop when he realizes what was happening. Kylo, still imbued with the side of light, stops, confused and perhaps terrified as well, and that’s how they’ll begin a conversation about Wounds of the Force.

III. Snoke and the First Order Weaponry

We all have been trying to figure out who Snoke is and while Andy Serkis, the actor who plays Snoke and even Pablo Hidalgo have already stated that Snoke is a new character, fans are quick to point out his similarities to other Sith Lords such as Darth Plaguies (officially debunked) and even Darth Scion and Darth Nihilus.

Snoke, as we all know, leads the FO and has their superior military might and weapons at his command. He approved the use of the weapon on the Hosnian system and would have done it to the Ileenium System had the Resistance not been able to stop Starkiller Base.

Remember the Death Star blowing up Aldeeran? That created a Wound in the Force. Imagine the massive wound SKB must have created when it destroyed all those planets in the Hosnian System.

IV.  Snoke and The Wound in the Force

And here we get to everything that ties the previous parts together. If you notice, all of them have one thing in common: A Wound in the Force

  • Ben Solo using the Sever Force ability on his fellow Force users created a wound. 
  • Kylo Ren attempting to use the Sever Force ability on Rey to break their bond creates or almost creates a wound. 
  • The First Order destroying those planets creates a massive wound. 

Connecting all those together, and you can see what Snoke’s ultimate goal is: to Wound the Force. 

  • It is why he manipulated and used Ben, not only so he would use the Sever Force Ability to wound the Force, but also to ensure no other Jedi can stand in Snoke’s way.
  • It is why Snoke is using the First Order’s military, so he can create more Force Wounds should he wish it simply by ordering the destruction of more inhabited planets. 
  • It may very well be that Snoke knew Kylo Ren was secretly going to Ach-To, but allowed him anyway in the hopes that Kylo will use the Sever Force on Rey, creating another wound and decommissioning another would be Jedi.

If Snoke’s goal truly is to create a wound in the Force, he would hardly be the first to have the same goal. Darth Traya wanted to do the same, because she hated the Force and felt that it controlled all life and that beings do not have true Free Will because of the Force.

But what of Snoke? What would be his motives?

It could be as complex as Darth Traya’s. Or something very simple.

Here’s how Kreia/Darth Traya explained in (Wookiepedia)

There is a place in the galaxy where the dark side of the Force runs strong. It is something of the Sith, but it was fueled by war. It corrupts all that walks on its surface, drowns them in the power of the dark side—it corrupts all life. And it feeds on death.

―Kreia, speaking of Malachor V, to the Jedi Council

And further explanation (wookiepedia)

Wounds in the Force were created whenever a massive loss of life occurred. All life in the galaxy was interconnected and when a significant number of lives were suddenly ended, the Force sustained a localized injury much like a sentient who had lost a limb. The epicenter of the wound became a dark place, filled with the reverberating echoes of the pain, terror, and suffering of the life forms who had lost their lives. Wounds in the Force were most often centered in astrographical locations where traumatic events took place, such as Malachor V or Alderaan

From these, we can interpret that Force Wounds can become a source of power for the Sith. Simply explained, Snoke wants to wound the Force so as to make the Dark Side of the Force stronger, and perhaps because of that, more Force Sensitives will be inclined to go to the Dark Side rather than the Light. In this aspect, Snoke’s motivations parallels that of Luke’s: Snoke wants to re-build the Sith whereas Luke wants to rebuild the Jedi.

Further Implications

Taking all these into account, it could pave the way for Kylo Ren—once he fully understands what was happening and how he has been used by Snoke—to ally himself with Rey and the Resistance. There could be future construction of more planet destroying weapons. More space fights. Perhaps even a rise of Dark Side users because of the Force Wounds that had been inflicted. Perhaps even Rey herself, with her lack of training, will be corrupted by the influx of Dark Side energy. There’s so much that could happen but one thing’s for sure: if all the theories posited here come to light, then episodes 8 and 9 will be very dark indeed.

we’re kings of the killing timeline

Since we’re kings of the killing is told non-linearly, some people have requested a chronological timeline of events. However, if you haven’t read the fic yet, I really suggest reading the it in the order it appears on AO3 for storytelling purposes. The timeline page includes names, ages, and links to chapters. It also contains major spoilers.

The timeline will be updated as the fic is updated.

what is your fave Reylo fanfic of all time?

Oh my gosh this is a tough one! I actually haven’t gone through a lot of them enough to make a sure judgment. There are some that I am fond of, but there are a few right now that I consider my top favorites, that until now either makes me look back and swoon, or make me scream when I see updates.

Arranged in no particular order 

Fault Lines by Devil Betty (einfach_mich) *COMPLETE
- Modern AU. Heavy on family drama, wherein Rey, an orphan out of the system, is fostered by Han and Leia, only to encounter a nemesis in their musician son Ben. Warnings for underage sex (in the author’s country, 17 is the age of consent) and cousin incest. Great characterization, great smut, reminded me a lot of old VC Andrews novels I used to read. I’m not ashamed to recommend it because the family drama and dynamics are really awesome here and the characters pretty much stay true to form.

Imbalance by FC2000 *ONGOING
- Modern AU where Ben Solo is a serial killer by night called Kylo Ren, and his encounter with Rey, a scrap metal scavenger and ward of landlord Unkar Plutt. This is a really, REALLY dark tale, and the author describes the settings so vividly that it makes you want to take a shower, but that’s a positive point of it. The writing is very effective, the characters spot on, and as someone who enjoys true crime novels, the psycopathy of serial killers is very accurate. This is one of those fics with fewer comments and bookmarks but deserves so much more.

PREY by KagamiSorciere *ONGOING
- POST TFA fic with an awesome story. Characterizations, in particular of Kylo Ren is just so spot on and you really come to feel so much for the characters. Emotions are left ambiguous, which is exactly how I like it. This is one of those fics wherein it shows rather than tells, and that’s effective writing.

The Bargain by on_my_toes *COMPLETE
- POST TFA fic wherein Rey gets herself captured on the Finalizer, and Kylo Ren is given no choice but to follow Snoke’s orders. Warning for dub-con. Basically Snoke orders the two to ‘breed’ or Finn and Poe get killed. Has pregnant Rey. Great characterization, and I love the development that happens afterwards. Plus points for an ending I can look back on fondly.

That’s it for now. Like I said I cannot make a sure judgment because I have 50 or so bookmarked Reylo fics that I haven’t even finished reading yet, because our lovely fandom always comes up with awesome recs or awesome new fic concepts that it’s sending my head spinning. So thank you Reylo fam, for filling up my Reylo library!

You seem familiar!

(this is for miachee‘s Demon! Marco Au thingie.)

A demon! Marco Au fic.

I am sorry to all who read this.

(quick note, I have not seen the episode blood moon ball yet so I have no idea what the hell’s bell is. So dimensional scissors it is!)

 

“So lets see! We are missing a few ingredients but I can pick them up from the underworld no problem!” Star said, grinning and closing the book she was reading. She was trying to do some sort of spell, Of which Marco had not been paying too much attention to, and she needed some things in order to do it properly and not kill anybody within a 500 meter radius.

“Lets go Marco!” The girl said, grabbing a very surprised Marco’s arm and dragging him.

“Wait what?! Why do I need to go?!” He yelped, wrenching his arm from her grasp as She got out her dimensional scissors.

“So that way you can help me gather the needed items! Duh!” She said like it he was suppose to have known that.

“But humans are not suppose to go the  underworld unless they are DEAD! I AM NOT DEAD!” He yelled.

“Oh yeaaaah!” She snickered. “Good thing you remembered!” She quickly got her book out again and flipped through the pages, trying to find some sort of spell to turn Marco into a demon temporarily.

“Aha! Found it!” She said grinning and reading the spell carefully before closing the book. “Okay hold still Marco or this will kill ya.” As she said that she was powering her wand up.

“WAIT WHAT.” He had no time to argue as Star repeated the spell out-loud. (haha I am too lazy to put the spell in.) Before Marco knew it there was a blinding flash. He shielded his eyes, flinching. As the light died down he uncovered his eyes.

“Did… Did it work?” He asked, promptly being answered with a tail slapping him in the face.

“OW! What the hell wa-” He cut himself short, noticing the thin blackish-brown tail with a pointed end. “IT WORKED HOLY CRAP MARCO!” Star was jumping up and down, grinning with glee.

“Okay but can I have a mirror to see what I look like?” He asked, watching the girl still jump with glee at the success of her spell. She nodded, quickly spawning a mirror. Marco looked in it and was surprised at how well the spell worked. He had a small pair of nubby horns on his head, four eyes oh god the second pair is looking in different directions, The tail that slapped him earlier, Pointed ears, Noticeably darker skin and tiny fangs poking just a little out of his mouth.

“The spell worked great. And I am still alive so good job Star.” Marco said, patting her on the back. She grinned at the praise.

“So how long does this spell last?” He asked her. Star just shrugged. “I have no clue to be honest.” She admitted. “The book did not say.”

“Well we best get moving to the underworld before the spell wears off.” He suggested. Star nodded and used the dimensional scissors to open a portal to the Underworld. Marco walked through it nervously while Star skipped in with no hesitation what so ever.

“Okay so first we need…” Marco was not paying attention to Star. He was too busy focusing on where they where. It seemed familiar, but that is probably due to the fact that Tom calls Star a lot, via her mirror so maybe he sent her a call here once? Either way, he felt like he had seen it before. He noticed some Underworld residents and was about to tell Star they had to get moving, only to realize she was gone. He looked around wildly before spotting her. He ran after her, worried she would get caught.

“STAR WAIT UP!” Marco called after her, but she did not hear him. He managed to catch up with her, gasping for air.

“I found the first thing we needed!” Star beamed, holding up some sort of plant. She grabbed a clear bottle and put the plant inside, corking it off and putting the bottle in her bag. Wait, when did she bring a bag? Marco shook his head, deciding not to question it.

“Okay next we are going to need… Some sort of bat thing.” The blonde said grinning. Marco was going to ask what it was but then realized the text on the page was a different language and that she was doing this by the pictures provided. She set off towards the west, with an already tired Marco following after her.

Marco was looking around the place while keeping up with Star. The place was not just hell fire and screaming souls thankfully, but more or less almost like Earth in terms of activity. People chattering, businesses and the such. The world itself was pretty okay in his terms. That is when Marco noticed Tom and stared pushing Star towards where they where going quickly.

“What the heck?” Marco put a hand over her mouth, still pushing her quickly. “Tom is here!” He hissed to her. Star’s eyes widened and she started running with Marco right beside her. When they got to where they where going Star looked around for the bats. Meanwhile Marco was looking out for Tom, who was walking towards their location. Not wanting Tom to see Star, Marco walked out casually. Tom of course, noticed Marco almost immediately.

“Oh! I was not aware of other demons being here!” Tom said, watching the other demon jog up to him. “Oh. Is this place private or something?” Marco asked him. Tom shook his head. “Nah but few other people go here since it is abandoned.  I go here so I can have some time to think.” Tom said. “Really? I can leave if you want.” Marco offered but Tom shook his head. “Nah it is okay. I would not mind having somebody to talk to.” Tom said grinning to Marco. “Well i would be okay with talking to you. My name is Ma-” Marco cut himself off. “Max.” He said, hoping Tom did not notice him pause. “My name is Tom.” The pale demon said holding his hand out for him to shake. Marco took his hand and they shook, Marco still nervous Tom would find out who he really was. “Say… You look kind of familiar. Do I know you?” Tom asked him. Marco started freaking out internally. “Nope! We have never met before!” Marco said quickly, sweating slightly. Tom noted how fast he replied, but decided to ignore it. “Well anyways… What do you want to talk about?” Tom asked Marco, sitting down. Marco sat by him and thought for a moment. “Do you like Snickers?” He asked.

Star grinned when she finally caught fur of the bat thingies. She looked around to find Marco and frowned when she did not see him. She shrugged and decided to just continue on since she only had one more ingredient to grab.

Tom and Marco meanwhile where having a hearty conversation about things they liked. Tom had no huge interest in earth things, but did show a liking towards their music. Marco noticed how there where a good number of things here that earth shared, but not too many.

Marco was going to go check on Star, when he noticed her walking someplace else. Marco was ready to bolt after her, but then remembered Tom was still with him. Tom noticed Marco looking at something, but had no idea what it was.

“Is something wrong Max?” Tom asked him, making Marco flinch slightly. “Oh nothing! I just thought I saw somebody I had recognized.” Marco said quickly. Tom just shrugged. “Happens to everybody at some point.” He said. Marco nodded and knew he should really go after her again soon.

He sat back down, worried suddenly about when the spell will wear off. Tom noticed that Marco seemed deep in his thoughts. “Are you okay?” Tom asked him, making Marco jump slightly.

“Yeah! I am fine. I am just worried about my friend.” He admitted. “She dragged me along to the underworld and we got separated.” He said, becoming more and more worried for Star.

“Well maybe i can help you find them.” Tom offered, surprising Marco slightly. This was the demon that tried to kill him a week ago? Marco thought it over and decided that yeah, he might as well. He nodded, standing up with Tom. Marco set off looking for Star immediately.

“Hey i never found out what species demon you are.” Tom said. Marco flinched slightly. He had no idea himself, Star had no told him. “To be perfectly honest, I have no idea.” He said awkwardly. Tom looked him over before shrugging himself. “I don’t either. Never seen a demon like you before.” He said.

Star looked around, holding a redish-black crystal. She put it in the clear jar and grinned. That was all the ingredients she needed. She went to go look for Marco when she saw him looking around with Tom nearby. She quickly signaled to him. Marco noticed, but Tom did not. While Tom was distracted, Marco quickly snuck away to where Star was.

“Why where you with Tom?” Star asked Marco when he reached her without Tom noticing. “I had to distract him from you.” He said. “Lets just get going before the spell wears off.” Marco sighed.

Tom looked back expecting to see Marco, but was surprised when he did not see him. He looked ahead and noticed Star with said demon. Just as he was going to go over there and asked what they where doing, Star pulled out dimensional scissors and drags her and Marco into the portal. He watches as the portal disappears.

He is going to have to call Star later asking who that cute demon was and more importantly, what he was doing with Star.

“I’m back, Ryuko”

“Welcome home sis!”

Satsuki visiting Ryuko in Kanagawa.

Ryuko is always happy when her sister drops by. Mrs Mankanshoku welcomes her too and would always make an extra portion of her Mystery Croquettes (Satsuki loves them, the first time we saw Satsuki being truly happy was when she ate the croquettes in episode 22, and like Ryuko she sincerely enjoys family dinners since she never had them). Then they talk all night about their current lives, about the past, about the future, anything really. And though Satsuki would never admit it, she’s really missing Ryuko but is too shy to ask her to live with her. But after Ryuko graduates from High School she finally musters the courage to ask her to move into her mansion (which is actually Ryuko’s mansion because they built it on the plot where the burned down Matoi Manor stood as she teared down Kiryuin Manor right after Honnouji Town was destroyed, burning the painful memories along with it). She asks Mako to move in with them too but she refuses, knowing that the sisters deserve having some private time together to bond. Now they are both studying at Tokyo University (along with Houka, Shiro and Nonon), Satsuki is majoring in politics and environmental studies and Ryuko is aiming to be a elementary school teacher. Mako is helping her Dad in his little hospital, Ira would often visit and help her. Uzu is still trying to beat Satsuki at Kendo (impossible task) and occasionally gives Ryuko Kendo lessons, refusing to fight her seriously until she learns how to properly behave in a Kendo match (Ryuko isn’t too happy about that, because who the hell needs rules in a fight?). Once every two months they would all come together and celebrate, forgetting studies and work, just enjoying themselves. Life couldn’t be better and they all earned it.

I don’t think any of the mods here are OG Stucky fans, since CA:TWS kind of revolutionized the fandom on that end. However, I think I can still help you. This link will take you to the oldest fics on AO3 tagged as James “Bucky” Barnes/Steve Rogers. Go backwards through the pages and you’ll get to more and more recent stories. You can see the dates they were posted in the right hand corner.

In addition to this, I can give you a few fics that were written prior to CA:TWS’s release in 2014 and are still fairly popular in the fandom! Enjoy!

This City Bleeds its Aching Heart

The one where Steve and Bucky pose as a happily married couple while on a mission for SHIELD, to catch an international arms dealer hiding in a suburban neighbourhood.

Till I Wake your Ghost

There’s a kill order on the Winter Soldier and Steve Rogers has been acting kind of strangely lately.

Uncharted

Steve gets curious and it’s Bucky’s civic duty to help him out.  There’s a chart.

update:

Karin here! I’ve been a stucky fan since I got into mcu in 2012 when avengers came out. I didn’t have tumblr yet or an ao3 account and I only really joined the mcu fandom on here in like late 2013 but I’d been reading fics for a while before that. I for sure have some more of the older fics for you, these were some of my faves when I first dipped my toe in the ship:

A Gentle Thaw by godofpancakes (Vera_DragonMuse)

AU in which there was no Dr. Erskine and no serum, Steve never got the chance to go to war. The years pass and Bucky finally comes home, no longer the man Steve remembers.

but hey, you’re all right by beardsley

‘This is not my fault,’ Tony lies. ‘It was supposed to be a joke! Christ.’

'Thanks to your joke,’ says Coulson, 'we now have a code three-four-delta, with the variable being a Russian immigrant. We’re checking his background right now, but it might take a while. Meanwhile, I suggest you civilian-proof the Tower. If any SHIELD intelligence is compromised, I will hurt you.’

Yes, this is the story where the Winter Soldier is a Russian mail-order bride. Everything goes about as well as you’d expect.

don’t have to know the words by midnightjuly (roadmarks)

Bucky’s injured, stranded, and bored, so the only logical thing to do is to mess with Steve. He doesn’t really anticipate Steve messing with him in return.

Find a map and draw a straight line by victoria_p (musesfool)

Bucky knows him better than anyone, but Steve’s pretty sure he doesn’t know about this.

Only Good Things by Jain

All of their neighbors think that Steve and Bucky are dating.

Let’s not forget them. Let’s not forget the Palestinians who are suffering each second of their lives because of the Israeli army.
They are humans, just like us, yet the medias barely talk about them or when they do, they try to make us believe that the victims were terrorists and the israeli army is a good one; actually they are killing civil, kids, family. They are targeting family houses, schools, football fields etc… We need to open our eyes and try to make things change even if it’s a little bit.
The israeli army is destroying everything just to build new colonies for its people. Chasing away a population from its own land! What would you do if people came to your house, killed all your family and then said “now it’s my house, you have nothing to do here” why ? Because they have more money than you do.
The israeli army is bombing from everywhere : air, water… What can the Palestinians do about that? They have absolutely nothing yet the Democratic countries is accusing the Hamas for “its attacks on Israel”.
The israeli government is threatening to cut electricity and they are also destroying the dons (medicines, food, water, clothes…) that were given in order to help the victims.
By the time I was writing this, a hundred of people were killed or wounded. So I’m begging you, who is reading this : don’t forget the Palestinians, let’s pray for them and keep them in our thoughts.
Let’s not forget also the people from Syria, Birmania…who live the same things but we won’t talk about them probably because of where they come from or their religion.

STOP READING THIS!!!

Hello reader,

This letter that I am writing to you right now is a warning for a potential danger. There is a demon that has been terrorizing people in your area for a while now. You may think this is a prank to scare you, but I assure you that it is very real.

The demon refers to itself as the Midnight Ripper. The Midnight Ripper sends its potential victims an unusual looking letter in a jet black envelope. The letter has a forever stamp with the victim’s name and address on it. There is no return address on the letter. The Midnight Ripper can only attack them if they see the letter and won’t STOP READING it. If they don’t STOP READING, they will be told that the Midnight Ripper has chosen them as its next victim. It then tells them that it’s going to visit them at midnight, and they should keep watch for when it arrives.

The letter then describes to them in horrific detail what the Midnight Ripper will do to them during the night. For example, the letter may tell the victim that it will rip out their left eye, eat it, and rip out their lungs and force them to watch with their remaining eye. Another example would be that it will slice their throats and stab them in their kidneys, and laugh because of their inaudible screams. It also tells them that its favorite thing to eat is human hearts. The letter will give the readers compliments on their hearts by saying it looks appetizing. They will then be tortured non stop until the sun rises and they finally die. He is only able to kill at night, which is why he prefers to kill in the winter. The longer nights give it more time to torture. There are many other ways that it has killed before, but I think you get the point.

No one knows why it can only attack people who see the letter and read it in its entirety. People have several theories to it, but many them seem outrageous. One theory is that there are words hidden in the letter that summon it and by reading it, they are unknowingly inviting it to kill them. The Midnight Ripper has the letter very well written in order to hook the reader in. If they are hooked, it will be almost impossible for them to STOP READING. It knows, through centuries of practice, that humans can’t stand not knowing things. It knows that their curious minds will pressure them into not wanting to STOP READING. I have been warning people that the safest thing to do is to STOP READING the mysterious letters and throw them away. I am yet to see the people I have warned to STOP READING live to see the next day. Those buffoons became curious about what was going to happen to them if they didn’t STOP READING. All of the torture they received throughout the last hours of their lives could’ve been avoided if they simply STOPPED READING. Hopefully, you can be the first person to survive. I am warning you. You must be careful. No one has lived to tell the tale of the Midnight Ripper, and it is hoping to keep that record going.

Thank you for your understanding. Make sure to keep a lookout for me when I visit you tonight. Your heart looks particularly appetizing. You should’ve STOPPED READING this while you had the chance. See you tonight.

Sincerely,

THE MIDNIGHT RIPPER

anonymous asked:

Im not good at understanding people's intentions so... What Arima thinks of Kaneki? What is Ken to him? Does he actually see him as a person, or just a weapon/monster? Answers for my questions are probably well known im sorry

We don’t actually know. ;u; Arima’s motives and thoughts STILL remain a mystery in this arc and it’s really difficult to pinpoint how he actually views Kaneki.

What we’ve seen this arc are mostly Kaneki’s thoughts towards Arima which are:
→ he sees him as his father
→ he doesn’t want to fight him
→ he tried to understand him but couldn’t

However, I do think that Arima’s dialogue in ch. 74 is quite significant. It’s possible that Ishida-sensei is trying to get us to read between the lines when it comes to Arima but not being able to understand him is probably the most normal reaction.

Arima can always just be following orders but there have been times where it does seem that he does care tho we can’t really say for sure yet either:
→ he regularly visits Haise/Kaneki in Cochlea (despite how it’s been mentioned that Arima’s a very busy man)
→ the first book he gave Kaneki was Hakushuu
→ he himself also reads Hakushuu
→ “645 times I could’ve fatally wounded you. 645 times I decided not to.”
→ “Don’t talk to ghouls,” and yet
→ “I could kill you in 2 seconds,” and yet

I could go on and bring up older chapters but these are from the current arc. But yep, Arima could really just view Kaneki as a Quinque all along and he might be carrying an ulterior motive but the one thing I would believe in is that these two have a very complicated yet significant relationship and I’m just really glad to see it get so fleshed out this arc.

Milady and Redemption

I’m kind of bemused by people who think Milady could never have a redemption arc. Not so much the people who just prefer her as a villain, but the people who feel it just “wouldn’t work,” that she’s too morally compromised for it to matter.

Do these people feel the same way about characters like Black Widow in “Avengers” who presumably killed a LOT of people to get that red in her ledger? About characters like Xena, who straight up massacred people, often for fun, and became truly evil for a time before wanting to change? Do they think the same of Jaime, on GOT, or Stringer Bell (or a host of other characters, really, on HBO shows?)

I’m genuinely curious. I think a lot of it comes from her murder of a presumably innocent, uninvolved woman for a dress this season. But does that woman’s life intrinsically have more worth than a man she may have been ordered to kill by the Cardinal? Are all the men the Musketeers kill in service of the King evil?

I’m not trying to be hostile, I’m actually interested in people’s thoughts. Maybe it’s the books I’ve been reading (about real world people who are morally compromised yet still human) as well as the kinds of characters I tend to love (morally compromised ones like Nikita, Xena, Spike, Morgaine, Sethe, Cole, James Cole, and Callisto, who have done terrible things because some bad choices by others impelled them down the path, and others like Berkhoff — who starts out selfish and gains a conscience — and Omar, who has a code but still does bad things as well) but I’m really thinking hard about what it takes for someone to be redeemed.

Personally, I would LOVE a redemption arc for Milady, if done well. Because her circumstances, while fictional, are possible — someone who began in a world of crime, with no real choice but to engage in it, who found a way out, lost it, and turned to crime and darkness as a way of survival. For her to try to change would be a VERY interesting arc, and could actually draw on the struggles of people IRL, if the writers so chose.

I also think that might mesh well with Mamie’s comments that she doesn’t want Milady called just a “bad girl” who people enjoy solely for her evil. (Because, think about that characterization. WHY are female villains so beloved? Often, it’s because they get to do things women are denied — be sexual, be strong, be bold, have anger — and in the world of “The Musketeers” especially, I think it would be cool to see that explored).

Also, Milady was nothing more than a soulless seductress in the original novels, and while other adaptations have shown her as human, they all also have her as ultimately unredeemable (and killed). If the show wanted to do something bold and different for her? They could change that. And I would love to see it. 

The Letters

Requested? No.

Warnings: probably emo.

Note: Honestly, I sort of want to make a second part, maybe an au sort of imagine and they come back earlier than of course usual, because the reader would maybe be dead by then, BUT idk, maybe I should leave it and just make one of them coming home, a completely different imagine. Eh struggle.


It’s been a few months since both of your soldiers have not came back home like you wanted them to. In all reality, they were the only people you had in your life that genuinely cared about you and your being. You had no idea what to do with yourself after hearing that they were both gone.

As of right now, you were sitting on your bed, a small box filled with many, many letters inside of it and also scattered about your bed. You were just now starting to read them all over again, both of your soldiers. You were readingthem out of order, but did you care to fix that? No.

Dear (y/n),

I have yet to find James. I can’t tell you where I am, sadly, but I know you understand that. I hope you are doing well, and please don’t worry about me or James. I can assure you that we will both be coming back home to you and we can make all the cookies and food you want. I really miss your cookies, you know? I’d kill for one right now. I’m sure he would, too. I know he misses you more than I do, even if I am not currently with him.

God, am I thankful that you had said yes to being his. I thought I would of heard the end of it, but I didn’t. I should have saw it coming, but you make my best friend really happy, and I appreciate it. You don’t make me feel left out, you include me. I can’t thank you enough for it. It truly means a lot.

I wish I could say more, but I have to go here shortly. Love you and your cookies :)

Steve.

You felt the tears, but you still laughed. Steve was an amazing friend, they both were, no matter even if Bucky was your boyfriend. You didn’t realize it, but your hand was shaking when you set that letter down to make a pile of the ones you were done reading so you wouldn’t get mixed up any longer.

Dear (y/n),

Hello, darling. I miss you so much it hurts. Are you taking care of Steve for me? I bet you are. That jerk, I wish I was spending time with you, too. Of course, though, I can’t. Don’t worry though, doll, I’ll be back home soon enough and we can make cookies and have some fun. No innuendo intended. Maybe. You know me.

My hand is hurting, but I’m trying to write as much as possible before I have to go. Sometimes, well all the time, when I can’t fall asleep or just so, I think of you. I always think of you. I know you think of me, too. I feel like it has been years since I last held you, and all I want right now is you. I want to wrap my arms around you, feel your lips against mine…god, i really do miss you, doll.

I’ll gladly see you soon.

Yours always, Bucky Barnes.

Tears were blurring your vision. It hurt like hell. You just wanted the both of them back. You just wanted to wake up the next day to the door knocking, only to open it and see that your soldiers were home in one peace, but that was too good to be true.

So you just sat there.

And cried, and cried, and cried.

You hugged your knees to your chest and just let it all out.

“Come home,” you mumbled, hugging your knees even tighter, feeling yourself getting quite drowsy as you laid yourself down after laying the box onto the floor.

Soon enough did you fall asleep, thinking of scenarios that could have happened if they came home.

A/N: I’m crying.
