i hope they all have the same characters as before

PSA for anybody who has ever felt insecure about how they write their character. Remember why you began writing them in the first place. Remember how much they mean to you and how much you enjoy writing them. There will be other people roleplaying the same character as you, it is inevitable, but there is only one of YOU and only one who plays the character the way YOU play them. You bring something special to that character. Something that nobody can mimic or do the same as because nobody is just like you. You need to accept that, and accept that there will be others, but just like you they will be playing the character their own way as well. Nobody is better. Nobody is the same. Nobody deserves to play a character more than another person does. This is no popularity contest and you should never feel as though you aren’t worthy of playing a character just because you or someone else has made you feel that way. Instead of comparing yourself to others who play the same character as you; try to embrace the differences and admire them. Cheer up and keep on keeping on. You love your character, you love roleplaying as that character, and in the end that is all that matters.

Out Of The Woods--Harry Hook x Reader

Request-Request for harry hook x Oc Bailey bad 🐺 daughter of the big bad wolf leaves the woods for the first time. In nothing but ripped clothing nearly covering her body. She bombs into none other than harry hook while sniffing around. Someone around their meeting could you have a scene where… Harry: “don’t worry love I don’t bite” Bailey: “ oh? But I do”

Thanks again to @carmen12053 for requesting this, I hope you like it!

Summary- You, daughter of the Big Bad Wolf, have never been outside of the Dark Woods before, but decide to explore the village, and meet a certain hook handed pirate.

Originally posted by imultifandomstuff

It was official. You were lost.

You sighed as you look at any possible signs or hints to tell you where you were, but everything looked the same. There was nothing but alley ways and hanging drapes, nothing like the molding trees of the Dark Woods.

You continued your search, only to still find nothing.

Well, you thought, this bites.

You sniffed around, trying to get some type of scent to guide you in some way, but still no help. All you could smell was the stomach wrenching odors of sweat, smoke, and…..dead fish?

You shook your head, the nauseating scent making you dizzy for a moment. This place was so closed up and musty, walls of metal towering over each side of the road. The different explosions of darkened colors made your head hurt, the new smells only making the experience worse. The change of scene wasn’t much of a surprise to you. This wasn’t the Dark Woods anymore. This was the village of the Isle of the Lost.

Old buildings with broken windows, stoned paths that were unstable to walk on. And the unwelcoming, and most certainly petty, fairy tale villains. You could sense the evil all around, it polluted the air like a plague. You had seen new villains come in over the years, all different, and ridiculous, in their own special ways. But being the daughter of the Big Bad Wolf, it was only natural that you lived in the Dark Woods, away from civilization. However, as years went by, you thought it was about time you “bonded” with your fellow villainous neighbors.
And so, you left the Dark Woods, and started your journey to the village, with nothing but your ripped clothes, and your scruffy appearance.  

But this was nothing you were hoping for, let alone wanting to conquer. In all honesty, this place was a dump!

No one seemed to fear you, or even acknowledge you.

You continue your path through the town, taking a turn onto a dirt path, surrounded with wooden structures, unlike those from the other parts of the town.

Too fascinated with the strange and sudden change of the Isle, you didn’t pay attention to your surroundings, bumping into a stranger, a minion of some type, you assumed.

“Hey! Watch where you’re-” With a low growl, you cut him off immediately. Then with a bark, he ran for his life. You chuckled, that never got old.

“Wow,” you heard someone say. “That was quite a show.”

You turned to the voice, meeting the eyes of a figure in the shadows. His scent was one of a male’s, but it was the thick accent and broad outline that proved your inference.

The look of him alone made it evident that he was nothing but trouble. You didn’t mind a little trouble now and then, but right now wasn’t one of those moments.

You backed away from him slowly, hoping to avoid the hidden stranger, but he caught on to your plan.

“Aw ye scared, love?” He snickered. “Don’t worry, I don’t bite, most of the time.” He smiled, showing his straight, white teeth.

“Really,” you smirked. “Well, I do.”

“Oh, feisty little thing, aren’t ya.” He slowly emerged from the darkness, standing at his full height. He was tan and tall, with eyes blazing blue. His features looked deadly enough to cut through bark, more efficiently than the hook he carried in his left hand. His hat was one you recognized as a pirate’s hat: triangular, with a small, white feather. But what gave it away the most was the abnormally large coat, which hugged his frame with red leather, and followed him like a broken kite, unable to gain enough air to fly.

He smirked again, his piercing eyes staring right into your, compared to his, dull E/C eyes. His index finger slowly stroked the interior of his hook, as if trying to intimidate you with his puny weapon.

You grinned, but only enough to show what little effect he had on you.

It seemed to work.

“I don’t believe I’ve seen yer face around this part before,” he said, examining your torn attire as he spoke. “I think I would have recognized someone with such a…..unique sense of style.” He cackled at his own joke.

“Yeah I’m not from around this part of the Isle,” you countered. “You see, where I come from, we don’t need to pretend our limbs are missing in order to scare others.”

The comment seemed it hit a sensitive nerve, as his laughter halted instantly, only to cradle the hook close to his chest.

Then, with a killer look, he pointed the tip of his hook towards your throat, thinking of the many ways he could dispose of you, most likely.

“I can hurt ye, little girl,” he hissed, tilting the hook toward the center of your neck.

You had to admit, you were a little scared, but you refused to give him the satisfaction of knowing that he had an ounce of control over you. You glanced at the hook and lifted your head to see his serious expression.

With a long, sharp fingernail, you gently lowered the hook from you neck, never letting your eyes wander away from the stern look he held. You watched as his anger melted into complete awe, flashing your award winning, sharp tooth smile.

“That’s Y/N Wolf to you, Pirate.”

His mouth hung open, eyes wide, as if trying to put the pieces together in his head. He fumbled with his words, stuttering, and breathing heavier than normal.

“Aw, you scared, love?” You taunted, using his own words against him.

His features turned grim, knowing he had just been outwitted by a newcomer.

“So seen as how I’ve got your attention,” you spoke, tracing along his defined jaw with the tip of your claw. “Why don’t you lend a helping paw and let every pathetic, no good citizen on this Isle, know that I, daughter of Big Bad himself, has come over for a little…..visit.”

He gulped, and waited until you lowered your finger to catch his breath.

“What’s your name, Pirate?” You smiled with a voice that made the poor boy shiver at your words.

He looked at your small frame, and frowned, “Harry Hook, son of Captain Hook.”

With a nod, you turned on your heel and walked back the way you came.

As he watched you disappear from his sight, Harry thought about how easy it was for you to make him feel so helpless, and with nothing but a smile and a slight touch of your claw. He smiled and chuckled to himself.

Just wait till Uma hears about her!

ain’t no mountain high enough

Summary: Stark continues looking at Peter. Peter considers the fact that the world is probably going to end within the next few days, and they, collectively, are supposed to be stopping it.

“Uh,” says Peter, waving his fingers a little bit. “It makes you feel really cool. You should try it.”

“We’re not painting our nails to match,” deadpans Stark.

“Well, sure,” says Peter. “But don’t come crawling back to me when you can’t defeat Thanos ‘cause you didn’t wanna harness the power of friendship.”

so this fic came into being for two reasons and two reasons alone. (1) this pure and healing artwork, which is absolutely precious and (2) that one post that’s like – Gamora: “You All Are Not” // Peter: “Y’AIN’T”. i wrote 10k words of fic about nail polish and the power of friendship in space. what a time to be alive. it’s set roughly … a year-ish? after the second movie? and beyond that, etc. peter and gamora have embraced their existence as “married in space”, is what im saying. title’s from the song with the same name OBVIOUSLY, i sincerely hope i’ve done these characters justice bc ive never written for them before, spoilers for vol.2 obviously, and, finally, important to note: I know absolutely nothing about the comics outside of what my little brother has told me in detail, so the line about Everyone Literally Dying is supposed to be a vague plot point reference to the original infinity war comics, wherein according to my brother, everyone literally straight up dies but then the universe is reset and they get up and are totes fine, no big thang. or something. hell if i know. just … ignore it if it’s confusing u, bc it’s confusing me too, i just needed some semblance of plot. enjoy!“You guys … painted your nails to match.”

There’s about three things Peter’s come to know about Tony Stark in the brief period they’ve been acquainted.

One: he appreciates some bangin’ tunes, which Peter has maintained since he was a skinny kid trying to make friends amongst human-eating space pirates is an immediate and automatic reason to respect a man;

Two: he’s kind of secretly scared shitless of Nebula. Peter understands this. Everyone’s kind of secretly scared shitless of Neblua, except for maybe Gamora, of whom many people are also scared shitless (hell yeah, thinks Peter; his wife is so much cooler than him);

Three: the guy’s an asshole, but that’s mostly just how he deals with stuff, which means that he’s an asshole-but-not-really-an-asshole, or at least, the sort of asshole who can be tolerated and even liked. Peter, personally, can relate to this more than most.

But, seriously? He’s hating on the team colours?

“Uh, yeah,” says Peter. “You guys don’t have that?”

The Freshman: Problematic Love Interests

So, ya’ll know how rough the last chapter of The Freshman was yesterday. Nearly everyone in the chapter was at their max level of craziness…particularly the love interests. In fact, I was so frustrated with some of their behaviors that I decided I had to get some things off my chest. Hence, this post came to be.

Forgive my snarkiness and general agitated tone here…I’m much less aggravated than I was last night. Let’s just be thankful I gave myself a day to relax before sharing these thoughts!

Okay, let’s get started.

so can i just rant for a moment? Im absolutely in love with Will on TNT. amd while there is concern about queerbaiting or them taking the “the queer character is the villian” troupe, this whole show so far has been very (very) open about sex and sexuality, especially when it comes to how shit actually was back then. Male actors played women, guys kissed other guys on stage, in drag and not in drag, based on the play or because women didn’t (weren’t allowed to ) really act. both Marlowe and Shakespeare had gay themes in their plays and works. Will in his first hundred or so sonnets and Chris in many or his plays, but also Dr. Faustus. in Ep 1 when chris cuts Baxter’s hand, its not exactly subtle that it looks like Chris is about to kiss him, and from that moment i was fuckin screaming cause they better mot be queerbaiting and holy fuckin shit chris just kissed will. most historians (old peeps) have been loath to admit it but if we actually look at the time period without a heteronormative POV then look at Will and Chris’s works, its really not hard to think that “hey, they’re gay/bi”. and TBH we actually know so little about shakepeares life, that its not implausible that him and Marlowe could have been friends/lovers/enemies/opposites attract. hell we know they at least worked on a play together so at some point they were friendly enough to do that. and of any of my fellow writers are out there who have found that one person where RPing dialogue with them is natural and makes sense and tells a wonderful story, then you know how close you have to be with that person. sure, anyone can just “collab with someone” and write something, but its hard to write natural dialogue, and harder to write it with too people. so as a writer, imm gonna take a stab and say that because of this work we know that they were pretty damn close at some point. i just

i love this show. sire it has the potential to be really problematic but its showing a lot of promise. This is not to mention the way it deals with religion and politics as foci but also on the sidelines. and how no matter whose plotline we’re following the plight of women and children without men in their lives is always there. baxter’s family, will’s family, Alice in general as a rebellious young woman, the boy who thieves and his sister who works at a brothel. that time period was really horrible to anyone but men and this show is not glancing over that.

i love everything about this show and i really hope the writers didnt fall into the same traps as many before them have when it comes to writing LGBT characters.

also, this doesn’t even start to show my love for all the subtle wordplay and puns and old english that the writers didn’t give a fuck if the audience caught or not. its an american show speaking modernized-elizabethan english. my dad walked in for about five minutes and was utterly confused about what they were actually saying, but caught enough modern stuff to not be thrown off. And dear lord in hell, the poetry/rap battle in the pub? i was. i- i cant- im in lovez the scene was so perfect in showing the cut-throat type of scene the theater world of london was back then.


love, a Shakespeare nerd.

Out of all your OTPs what are your top10 (in order) ?

1. Kim Shin and Eun Tak, Goblin: The Lonely and Great God

I keep saying this but very rarely do couples from new shows become my OTP, I have them as number one because I haven’t had this kind of reaction to any other ship. I would cry days after the show’s finale when I would just hear a song from the show’s OST. There is so much earnest and sincere emotion between them and Gong Yoo and Kim Go-eun have great chemistry, their relationship was tragic in a really beautiful way and cute in the most heartbreaking way, their bickering was done with so much conviction and the pain at whenever they separated was felt deeply. Like I believed in this couple.

2. Stefan and Elena, The Vampire Diaries

I don’t think I really need to explain why SE is one of my top OTPs since so much of this blog is dedicated to going into detail as to why that is; in a nutshell, they have that soulful, passionate, transcendental love that is nuanced and complex and rarely seen.

3. Jax and Tara, Sons of Anarchy

This is a ship that’s rooted in chemistry because their romance isn’t logical or rational, there is so much danger and pain and violence surrounding them, anyone in their right mind wouldn’t be involved with Jax and his mother and his club but the pull between him and Tara is undeniable, it’s a pull that’s existed even though they were apart for 10 years and their love is passionate and it takes them to dangerous, destructive places but it’s heartfelt and overwhelming and not many people can pull off that kind of dynamic.

4. Mickey and Ian, Shameless

Like I said last night, I thought the saying “I love you so much it hurts” was stupid until I was introduced to Gallavich because there is such a wholehearted affection for each other that it’s almost like neither of them can breathe yet at the same time their relationship acted as a breath of fresh air. It’s the one ship that I thought was redemptive and toxic at the same time and Noah and Cameron have such intense chemistry, the angst between them is insane and I think they manage to show the struggle Mickey has with being gay in a way that was heartbreaking to watch without it being sappy and cliched and that made you feel so bad for both him and Ian so that when he finally embraces who he is, it’s like the best thing in the world. And the way Mickey cares for Ian is so unique to Mickey like it’s softhearted and violent and it’s just, this ship is a study in contrasts and it works, which is very hard to do.

5. Noah and Rosalee, Underground

Noahlee is another ship that’s new but that I ship passionately because first of all Aldis and Jurnee have great chemistry, the minute they’re in a scene together in the pilot, those longing gazes were enough for me, second of all I always love seeing young black couples onscreen, third of all, within the context of their lives and of the show — which is a show about enslavement and about the various avenues taken to combat the institution of enslavement — the fact that they fell in love is revolutionary, the fact that white supremacy didn’t beat out their will to have affection for each other is a subversive act in it of itself. Related to that, Noah is a very passionate character, a very strong character who believed in Rosalee, believed she could and would do great things before even she realized she had the strength to do so and his drive inspired her while loving Rosalee provides Noah with a sense of peace and hope.

6. Crixus and Naevia, Spartacus and Sura, Agorn and Nasir, Spartacus

I have all three ships in the same number because I love them all equally but differently. The Spartacus series portrays such passionate ships.

Crixus and Naevia,

I really enjoyed them because they’re such a pure romance; when we’re introduced to Crixus he’s legit a dick and the only thing he cares about is glory and honour and being the best gladiator and he falls in love with Naevia and is given more complexity and he’s softer because of her.

Spartacus and Sura

are tragic and you don’t see much of their relationship and what you do see is mostly in flashbacks because they were separated, both sold into slavery, but Spartacus refuses to die because he wants to see Sura again and he starts a rebellion because of her, he loves her absolutely that he’s unable to love any other woman, like it’s intense.

Agorn and Nasir

were a ship I didn’t think I would pay much attention to because I didn’t really care for either character but Agorn and Nasir loved each other so fiercely, like I dare anyone to try and tear us apart and the devotion between them was extremely intense plus Dan and Pana had great chemistry.

7. Oz and Willow, Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Willow is the character I relate to the most in Buffy so my friends and I always joke about how I’m waiting for my Oz because Ozillow was unbelievably adorable, I love them so much. Alyson and Seth had a chemistry that surprised me, I didn’t think that it would be as natural and at times intense as it was but they’re just such a feel-good ship.

8. Jackie and Hyde, That 70s Show

I don’t think anyone expected the awesomeness that is Jackie and Hyde. Mila and Danny worked really well together and I think you really got the sense that they cared deeply for one another while at the same time having the capacity to really aggravate each other and just by nature of being polar opposites who happen to care about each other, they got each other to grow — Jackie became less vain and less domineering while Hyde actually became more vulnerable and less stubborn, they were actually perfect and the writers fucked it up and I will be forever salty about that.

9. Jane and Michael, Jane The Virgin and Jim and Pam, The Office

I have them both on the same number because I love them equally for the same reasons.

Jane and Michael

External image

Pam and Jim

Jichael and Jam are both relationships in which the two people just click, they just get each other, they’re on this other plane that no one can reach and they have an intimacy and implicit knowledge of each other that isn’t the breathless intense, angst-ridden dynamic that I love but it’s as profound and significant.

10. Scott and Kira, Teen Wolf

I know Scallison is the favourite and I do love Scallison but I don’t know, Scira has a groundedness to them that I respond to more and they’re a very physical ship; a touch from Kira can still Scott’s hand or still him to calmness that his eyes stop glowing; holding Kira allows her to decompress and be comforted, she can close her eyes in relief and in security, and the way Scott and Kira run towards each other, it’s almost magnetic, like they’re being pulled together and have no choice to connect. And of course their sexual chemistry is kind of insane. But that’s the thing with Scira, there’s a gentle intensity to them because it’s like they finally achieve calm from the crazy supernatural mess when they’re touching each other or in one another’s arms or kissing each other, which makes their relationship physically intimate.


Vince and Jess and Matt and Julie, Friday Night Lights

Buffy and Angel, Buffy The Vampire Slayer

So in the Supergirl 2x21 promo we see Kara, Cat, and Lillian Luthor all in the same room discussing how to save the city aka we see Kara, Cat, and a person with a very different sense of morality all in the same room discussing how to save the city. Where have we seen this before? In the second to last episode of season 1. That episode centered around Kara, Cat, and Maxwell Lord all debating what the best way to stop Non was between dropping a bomb like Max wanted to or inspiring them with hope like Cat inspired Kara to do. I hope 2x21 parallels 1x19 in more ways than just setting up a scene with similar characters. 

I hope we get Cat inspiring Kara again. I hope we get Kara realizing what makes her a true hero, how she brings out the best in people by assuming the best in people. I want an ethical debate between Cat and Lillian on how far is too far when you are trying to protect the city. I hope we get women supporting women in all different ways. There is such an opportunity to get plenty of moments that feel like season 1 in these next two episodes, ones where the writers realize the depth of these amazing, complex characters they have created. 

I want to see Kara’s struggle with her Kryptonian history, particularly with how the mistakes that Krypton made caused Daxam to die as well. I want to see Kara angry again because she lost so much. I hope the writers remember how Kara’s grief and anger are such important pieces of her character. I want a scene where Kara shares a piece of her past with Cat like in season 1. Between telling Cat that her parents died in 1x05, explaining how she doesn’t get a second chance with her mom and she wishes her mom were here to ask her if she is happy in 1x11, expressing how she loves National city so much because every time she helps somebody she feels like their light becomes a part of her in 1x16, and revealing that although she loved her mother she didn’t save Krypton like she promised in 1x19, and so many more, Cat has always been the person that Kara really opens up to. I feel like the reason that losing Cat Grant really hurt the show was not just because Cat Grant was an amazing character, but also because she was so important to Kara’s growth as Kara trusted her enough to share all of the pain that she has been through with her, both as Kara and Supergirl.

I am so happy that Cat Grant is back for the final two episodes and I really hope the writers take advantage of her being back and we get some great Kara/Cat scenes as well as some parallels with the Kara/Cat/Lillian scenes.

anonymous asked:

prompt: (takes place after 4x05 but just pretending like the fight and yousef/noora never happened🤧🤧) sana gets into a bad bad bad fight with vilde ( because of the islamophobic things she keeps saying) and goes home afterward and maybe she's hurt or something. the whole ballook squad is there and they take care of her and confront vilde! do what you want with this prompt i know you can make something beautiful out of his messy idea:-)


Thank you so much for trusting me with your idea

I hope you don’t mind that I focused more on the balloon squad confronting Vilde than on them taking care of Sana, but there’s a reason. I received another prompt kind of about that and I don’t want them to be exactly the same so I took the defending Sana idea and focused on that. Of course they’re taking care of her too. Also I added a tiny Yousana bit because well, I’m me and I can’t help myself, I really hope you don’t mind.

Also I set it in 4x05 and not after ‘cause I feel like it could be a good opportunity to have everyone in the same place. I really hope you don’t think I’ve messed up too much

I really hope you like the fic and that I don’t diappoint you.

Also I wanted to say some things before all of you read this:

1) I’m not trying to demonize Vilde, just following the prompt and trying to keep her on character. I mean, she’s not the most thoughtful person we know

2) I really hope no one feels disrespected about the comment I chosed for Vilde to say. I just wanted to pick something that would affect Sana so I went back to the kind of comments season 1 and 2 Vilde would say. I really hope you don’t feel upset or disrespected ‘cause that was not my intention and I’m really sorry if you do feel like that.

Well, that’s it I really really hope you like it! 


“Honestly, Vilde, I’m so done with you”

She had tried to be patient with her, she had given her the benefit of the doubt so many times, but still there she was again with her comments.

“Sana!” she heard her calling her name but she was already leaving the karaoke place, she didn’t want to cause a scene and she knew that if she stayed she wouldn’t be able to control herself, not anymore.

She slammed the door opened and got outside focusing only on getting out of there and arriving home as soon as it was humanly possible. That’s why she didn’t realize that there were five boys looking at her confused.

“Sana? Where are you going? What’s going on?” Elias asked approaching his sister followed by the rest of the group.

She stopped walking and looked at them

“Nothing, I’m fine” she sighed “I just want to go home”

“You don’t look fine” Yousef said “What happened in there?”

“Nothing, I just…” she started but was interrupted by certain blonde that had just exited the karaoke club


“Seriously Vilde, I don’t want to fight so just leave me alone” Sana spat at her

Okay, okay, calm down, both of you” Elias said trying to meddle between them “What happened?”

“Just Vilde being Vilde and not being able to keep her mouth shut” Sana said

“What did you say?” Yousef asked squinting.

“Nothing!” Vilde tried to defend herself

“Nothing?” Sana laughed sarcastically “Nothing. Of course, nothing”

“I only suggested Sana that when we’re alone with the pepsimax girls she could stop wearing her hijab, I mean there would only be us girls, she wouldn’t need to wear it” Vilde said innocently.

As soon as the words left her mouth five voices started to sound. All of the members of the Balloon Squad, even Adam, Mikael and Mutta who had been trying to stay away from the confrontation since they didn’t want to pry, began to say stuff to Vilde from “Not cool” to “What the hell?”

“Wow, guys, it’s not that big of a deal, it was just a suggestion” Vilde said

“Are you for real?” Elias asked, then he turned to his sister “Is she for real?”

Sana only gave him an exasperated look.

“If you don’t like the idea you can just say it, Sana, you don’t have to throw your brother and his friends at me” Vilde said rolling her eyes

“Throw us at you?” Adam asked not believing what he was hearing

“What do you think we are? Dogs?” Yousef added

“Girl, we’re only reacting like anyone would if they hear what you’re saying” Mutta tried to make her understand

“I don’t see how what I said was so offensive”

“I can’t believe this” Mikael said covering his face with his hand

“Okay, okay, let’s hear her out. Come on, tell us what your thinking behind that comment was” Elias said almost laughing at the absurd of the situation

“I only wanted Sana to be more comfortable, to fit in” Vilde argued

“And you don’t think she can be comfortable and fit in just the way she is?” Yousef said “You’re her friend, you’re supposed to love her no matter what”

“I do, I just wanted her to know that she’s not forced to wear that with us” Vilde said

“For the last time Vilde, no one is forcing me to wear it! I wear it because I want to. Can’t you understand that?” Sana said almost losing her temper

“Okay, okay. I’m sorry. Okay”

“You better be” Yousef said shaking his head

“Jeez, I didn’t think you would react like this” Vilde said

“Maybe that’s your problem Vilde, you don’t think before talking” Elias told her

Just forget about it. It’s not worth it” Sana said “I just want to go home”

“Then we’re all going home” Elias said

“You don’t have to”

“Hey, you’re going, we’re going” Yousef told her smiling

She looked at the rest of the boys and all of them nodded at her

“Sana I don’t want you to be mad at me” Vilde said

“I’m not mad Vilde, I’m just tired” Sana answered and then she turned around and left with the balloon squad by her side

“I honestly can’t believe that girl” Elias said as they entered the Bakkoush’s.

All of them took off their shoes and entered the living room. Sana sat on one of the couches with Mikael by her side. In the couch in front of it, Elias, Adam and Mutta tried to fit in. Lastly, Yousef sat on the floor with his back against the boy’s couch so that he would be facing Sana’s and Mikael’s.

“Eventually you get used to that kind of things” Sana sighed

“Well you shouldn’t” Mutta said

“I don’t want to talk about it. Let’s do some other thing”

“I have an idea. Sana you’re smart” Adam said

“Well, I like to think so, yeah” she smiled

“Why don’t you help us figure out the next topics for our videos? I’m sure you’ll have better ideas than your brother”

“Hey!” Elias argued

“Sorry, man but he’s right. Sana’s way smarter than you” Mikael added

Sana couldn’t help but smile. Those boys, not only they had defended her like she was their sister but they were always really kind to her and make her feel welcomed among them.

“Accept it Elias, your friends like me more than they like you” Sana said laughing

“I certainly do” Yousef said looking at her

Sana looked back at him and smiled as wide as she could, biting her lip in embarrassment when she saw all of the boys staring at them.

“Okay, if I’m going to help you we need something to eat first. I’ll be right back” she said standing up

“I’ll help you” Yousef immediately said getting on his feet

“I’ll go too” Adam added trying to stand up but he was stopped by Elias’ hand on his arm

“Let Yousef go, I think they’ll be fine on their own” he said

A unison “ohhh” filled the room making Sana blush.

“Shut up” she said glaring at the boys before turning around to go to the kitchen.

“Sorry about that” Yousef said embarrassed as he entered the room

“It’s okay, they’re kids” she said rolling her eyes acting like her heart wasn’t pounding as fast as humanly possible on her chest

“Hey, are you okay?” he asked looking at her “About the Vilde thing”

She nodded. He raised her eyebrows not believing her.

“Yes, I’m okay”


“What can I say? I’m used to that comments. I don’t know why I exploded today when I’ve been hearing  them for a long time, I guess I was just tired”

“You shouldn’t be used to that”

“I know she doesn’t mean to hurt me, she’s not a bad person…she just doesn’t think”

“How can you be so amazing?” he whispered more to himself than for her to hear it

She tried to contain the smile but she couldn’t. He smiled back at her and looked at her more tenderly than he had ever had.

“Your friend hurt you and here you are, defending her ‘cause that’s who you are. You’re this selfless person that always put others first.” He bit his lip before continuing “You’re amazing Sana, and no one should ever make you feel any other way”

She was speechless, the honesty in his voice struck her and all she could do was stare at his eyes and get lost in them, just as he was getting lost in hers. The moment was interrupted by a voice that came from the living room.

“Hey, lovebirds, we’re still waiting that food” Elias said

“Can I say that my brother’s an ass and still be amazing?” Sana asked Yousef rolling her eyes

“I think that makes you even more amazing” he said laughing and they both got to work, they had four boys to feed.


So this is it!

I really hope you’ve liked it and that I haven’t disappointed you

Again I’m sorry if this upsets anyone

Thank you so so much for reading!!

Next promp will be written probably tomorrow morning ‘cause I don’t know if I’ll be able to do it this evening after classes even though I’ll try

Happy birthday Johnny Depp!!

Happy birthday my love! I wish I could say a personal message to you in person, but I’m happy that I’m writing you a message at all. I’ve said this before, but I just want to say it again: thank you. Thank you for everything. I can keep saying it until I have no breath, but it will never mean the same as what I actually feel. Thank you for making us smile, and making me so damn happy that my face starts to ache. It’s the best god damn feeling in the world and I hope that you’ve felt that happiness before. Happiness is special and a gift that you have all given us, and I will cherish that gift until the day i die. Thank you for creating such relatable, inspiring and original characters that don’t make us feel as lonely as we used to be. They help us learn things, appreciate things and teach us ultimately that’s it’s okay to be different, and we should celebrate our individuality. Thank you for, being famous but remaining as selfless and as humble as you are. There are going to be people out there who want to put you down, and say you’re a terrible human being, but they’re not the people who visit children in hospitals, who stay up for hours on end to make sure every photo is signed, who records his voice to help patients wake up from comas, and so much more like you do. Thank you for loving us, caring about us and making sure we’re all okay. We all fall down sometimes and that’s okay, but you’re always there to help us back up. I know you’ve struggled, and we will always do our very best to make you feel special and loved, because you are so much more than an ‘idol’. You are a hero, a saviour, it indescribable. But most importantly, you’re a human being, and your happiness is the most important thing to me, and to many of us. I have found passions that I love because of you. Drama, because you have helped me develop my creativity and confidence, even if I am labelled as someone who should not be doing drama because of my social anxiety, drama and acting has become my kind of escape, where I can be anybody that I want to be. I’ve also found a love in painting and drawing. I mostly draw you and things from your films, but I’ve found an honest passion and I feel like it’s because of you. And through everything, you have become the brightest damn star in the universe, and you continue to shine, and that’s want makes me beyond happy, it makes me feel loved. So thank you, I love you and we are always with you no matter what. Keep shining my love, you can never keep a good man down. Happy Birthday Johnny Depp!!

Hello! Your description says requests are open so I am giving it a shot! I would like to request how the RFA+V+Saeran would react to MC who's into an otome game such as MysMe? Like, she stays awake late at night to answer calls. If this is too much, just choose whom you would want to do. If this is a bother, please feel free to ignore it. Thank you for being such an awesome writer, by the way! Have a great day! 😆


  • If there is anyone who’s able to relate to someone who stays up late at night because of video games, it’s Yoosung.
  • In fact, he thinks it opens a door to some conversations about gaming in general, which he definitely enjoys, so he doesn’t mind.
  • He doesn’t judge either for whatever game it is they’re playing.
  • He’s gonna act pouty and jealousy slips from time to time. “They’re fictional, Yoosung. Why are you jealous?”


  • She catches the drift. It’s similar to her love for musicals in a way. She could stay awake all night watching plays and definitely fangirling.
  • She does remain reasonably concerned though, since she wants them to get enough sleep at all costs. Especially since she knows how tough it can be to not catch enough Zzzs
  • Definitely wants to give it a try herself and downloads the game as well. And lands in otome hell herself.


  • Why look for fictional hotties when a real one is right there??? (this headcanon is so meta what)
  • At least he really wants to know who their favorite character is and he’s going to point out all the similarities between himself and said character.
  • Whenever he calls them (and he knows their ringtone is probably switched to the one from the game) or pick sup their call, he rephrases their favorite character’s signature phrases and acts like them 100%. The benefits of being a great actor.


  • He doesn’t quite get the thrill behind it, but if they’re having fun with it, why would he be opposed to it?
  • Even though he claims to not be interested in it, he does keep asking questions about the game. The story, the characters etc.
  • It’s lore alright. Plus, it might serve as a source of inspiration for future marketing purposes.


  • Pfft, he’s a diehard fan. Wouldn’t surprise me if he was the one who introduced them to the game.
  • Brags about how much more progress he has made ingame than them. Even though it’s probably all hacked.
  • Has actual unironic fights over who the best character is.


  • As long as they’re enjoying themselves, he’s happy with their hobby. He does love seeing them having fun and smile at their phone.
  • “I hope you’re wearing the same smile whenever I text you.”
  • He loves listening to them read the dialogue. Their voice is just calming to him.


  • “Wow. This is pointless and silly.” says the one who unlocked all secret endings, keeps up with all the updates and even has an entire folder with art dedicated to his bias.
  • You know it’s bad when Saeran goes to bed before them. He’ll probably eventually just pull them to bed and snuggle up against them.
  • They can stay on their phone, but if they need to get up to get a charger, the problem fixes itself, he’s not gonna let go.

Hi! Same anon who was asking if I could make a swapped version of undersale. Do mind if I still draw the characters? Because to be honest I was halfway through designing Muffet before I realized how similar the AU's were😅. I'll still give you full credit if I post it, and if you don't want me to draw them at all I completely understand. I hope I'm not bothering you by asking and I hope you have a great day!😊

Oh, I’m very sorry anon, but I honestly would rather you to not draw them.

anonymous asked:

She has to tell him. If she really wants a future with him, she has to. Period. Everything else is just excuses. He'll react in whatever way he reacts, but that's his decision to make. They have to show that she learned the lesson of season 1. Otherwise, where's the character growth? The same mistakes again? I hope she's the one to tell him and she tells him before anything happens between them. Otherwise, it will be another small betrayal, the way I see it. And I had enough of this drama.

I agree. If either of them has gone through any growth over the past year then yes, two things have to happen. Jane needs to tell Kurt the truth. He cannot find out from someplace else. After all, the entire mess of last year was because she kept things from him to protect him. She is doing it all over again. Although this time, she is also protecting Roman, so while the stakes may be higher, it is season 2, so they have to be anyway. But if Jane has gone though any growth, then she has to come forward with the truth.

And two, Kurt’s reaction has to be… well, he is not going to be happy about it, so his initial reaction won’t be good, but he too should have gone through some growth and he cannot react like he would have back then. He knows Jane better now, and he understands what drives her more, so he has to know that keeping this from him did not come from a place of evil but pure concern for both him and Roman.

And with so many bigger problems at hand, they have to quickly get over this in order to defeat everything else. They cannot be too stupid to let this become a problem that will make them lose focus.

Honestly, the only other scenario I would be ok with in regards to how Kurt finds out is if Roman tells him. After all this is a secret being shared by the siblings and while it would be much better for Jane to tell him, I can see how it would also be good for Roman to open up here. Kurt is warming up to him and while this may cause a ripple in their very young relationship, at least it would be built on honesty. And with Roman opening up, he could explain to him how Jane wanted to tell Kurt but didn’t know how to do it.

Let’s be real, at this point, I am almost equally invested in Roman/Jane and Roman/Kurt and Kurt/Jane (almost) and I want to protect all three relationships equally. Ugh. I hate this show.

anonymous asked:

ey can i ask u about shuichis true personality? im really confused about it

I can certainly try, anon! It’s normal to be confused—ndrv3’s ending allows for a lot of speculation and leeway, and there’s still not a lot we know about most of the characters pre-game. But Saihara’s audition video is perhaps the most startling and drastically different glimpse we get of any of the characters’ pre-game and in-game selves, which is I think exactly why Tsumugi showed it to them during the Chapter 6 trial.

In a way, the reveal about Saihara and even the other characters having potentially signed themselves up for the killing game is even more shocking than the reveal about Hinata being Kamukura in sdr2. Where the latter was a reveal that came as a surprise, certainly, it also made sense given the clues that had been presented up until then, and all the fixation Hinata had with the idea of “talent” and wanting to join Hope’s Peak, to the point where it was understandable once the player realized he had willingly signed up to be experimented on and throw his true self away.

But the Saihara reveal comes as a bigger shock specifically because of the way Tsumugi phrases it. Without context, it certainly looks as if pre-game Saihara, the one who we see in the audition tape, is simply someone who was so into Danganronpa that he was interested in murders, closed-room tricks, etc. that he had almost none of the compassion or empathy for others that in-game Saihara does.

anonymous asked:

How many parallels you predict we gonna get in this arc? I'm still intrigued with Touka's last artwork and how it will come out in all the mess we gonna get. Tell me your theory regarding how artwork and this arc gonna correlate.

We’re talking about the artwork which has her in all black right? Not the I trust your message one? 

Considering the focus on Touken’s romantic relationship this arc, I guess we’ll be focusing on their parallels with Arata/Hikari and Ukina/Kuzen and if anything, I think this arc will be, or at least I’d like it to be, about them breaking away from these parallels. 

I feel like issues with the baby has more to do with Ukina/Kuzen, considering Touka is explicitly following Ukina in the way she’s trying to protect the baby. My theory initially was that if the baby survives, Touka and Kaneki wouldn’t abandon it like how Eto was abandoned. It’s likely that if their child lives, it might be of interest to people like Kanou, who would obviously love to get his hands on it– just like V with Eto. But I doubt they’d leave the baby alone. This is, of course, assuming the baby survives. 

But the art comes into question. Touka seems to be mourning and since the baby’s birthdate is the around same date the art came out (I also saw someone saying that Touka’s calendar actually correlated to 2016′s???) I am inclined to think that it is the baby. We’ve been told quite a bit that it’s impossible for a ghoul mother to give birth to a half-ghoul baby. A part of me thinks that it’s a little too predictable for Touka’s pregnancy to fail and that Ishida probably has something planned– Ukina and Kuzen made something so rare happen with Eto being borned as a oeg so who’s to say it won’t be the case with Touken as well? But when I read the Kirishima birthday poem and look at this Touka artwork, it seems to be saying that the baby will die. Considering Ishida wrote a whole calendar filled with manga spoilers, I feel that he’s kinda hinting us quite a bit as well. 

Personally, I think they might pull through with the pregnancy. But the way the baby is raised is going to be different from how Ukina/Kuzen managed it. I have completely no idea so all I’m going to do is sit here and wait for what’s to come about our little prince/princess, pun completely unintended. Personally, I’m not as familiar with Ukina and Kuzen’s story as I am with the Kirishimas so it’s hard for me to really pull it in together. I’m really just grasping on the vague stuff I know. =w= 

As for their parallel with Arata/Hikari, I think it’s more about how, despite their similarities to Arata and Hikari as characters, their story won’t play out the same way. The parallel here is a little broader than this because we have to take Ayato and Yomo into consideration as well, as I mentioned before. 

Yomo’s regret is over how he was unable to protect his sister and probably how he contributed to Arata’s downfall. Remember his speech in chapter 71 about planting seeds to grow into flowers and all, and how Touka and Ayato are his only hope left. Touka and Ayato would overcome what Hikari and Renji cannot, which is what I think will change things for Kaneki and Touka. The Yomo siblings were together up to the point Hikari got married and moved out, which is why Renji couldn’t be there for her when she died. The Kirishimas were apart until recently, a little before Touka got married. Ayato’s on a mission now, but his home is back with Touka and he will come back from the city eventually so I doubt he’ll be absent when Touka’s in danger. 

And with this, Kaneki won’t have to end up like Arata because his wife might not die. Arata’s downfall happened when he was left to face the world alone while protecting his kids. But if Touka lives on, Kaneki won’t be alone. Touka is his reason to live and unlike Arata, Kaneki doesn’t have kids to save him from a complete plunge if she does die. 

The parallel adds a little suspense to the story, I suppose because this is what’s at stake now. We know how things turned out for Renji and Arata when Hikari died and we know it’s completely in Ayato’s and Kaneki’s characters to follow in their footsteps. If things turn out the same way, it’ll be disastrous for two of Goat’s most powerful members– which is of course pretty fucking bad for the revolution as well. So the question now is, will history repeat itself or not? 

I seriously don’t think so because I think the seeds Yomo planted have to bloom. I have faith that Ayato will be by Touka’s side when she is in danger and I believe these two will pull through what their mother and uncle couldn’t– in a way, I wonder if it’ll be a form of redemption for Yomo in his eyes. 

Tales of Festival, Sunday June 4th 2017

Oh, something I forgot about yesterday’s show. Since next year will be the REAL 10th year anniversary for Vesperia, the cast were joking about having a fancy dinner party. Where everyone (including all of us) comes to Yokohama Arena in fancy clothes and eats dinner and goes home. (The image of this absolutely cracks me up. Moving on.)

Okay, I am just going to say it, today was sooooo much better that yesterday ahaha. I enjoyed it a lot. But now I will have hell remembering everything and will probably be editing this post for the next few hours….

Now that I think about it, I didn’t post about this here yet, but…

Konomi Takeshi, aka Konomi-sensei, aka the creator of Prince of Tennis, aka the guy whose manga I’ve been obsessed with for like half my life

…replied to me on Twitter last weekend ヽ( ̄▽ ̄)ノ

There was a big Jump SQ ad in Shinjuku Station, and he posted a pic of himself posing in front of the Tenipuri panels in it, and invited his followers on Twitter to take pics of themselves posing the same way and send them to him. And I happened to be in Tokyo last weekend for the SUNPLUS event, so I went and found the ad and got my picture taken with it (there were like eight other Tenipuri fans all gathered around doing the same thing, it was wonderful) and tweeted at him, and…ヽ(;▽;)ノ

He only replied to 25 people or so before saying he had to go back to work! I was one of the last ones ;; But what’s even better is that in his reply he said “even someone from America…!!” but…I didn’t say I was from America in my tweet to him…which means he clicked through to my profile LMAO I didn’t have enough characters to mention Yamabuki in my tweet (hence the Yamabuki bear pic, lol) but I hope he noticed my extreme love for them anyway XD (He also mentioned Tenimyu, which I didn’t, though that could also be because I have Dream Live in my display name…)

Anyway, what a good guy. Thank you, Konomi-sensei!!!

 Chapter 5

 All eyes turned to Riley as she regained her bearings.  Lucifer quickly walked out and stepped up behind her, giving her a bit of support.  

“Riley!” Dean said with a big smile on his face.

“You’re awake!” Sam said with the same enthusiasm.

Riley took a few steps forward before she was engulfed in the Winchester’s arms, giving her tight hugs.  “Guys, I’m fine.  Lucifer healed me up just fine.”  She said with a smile as she pulled away from her brothers.  “Speaking of which…no angel blades…right?”  

The boys chuckled as they looked you over.  “Nah, we just want to make sure you are alright.  It’s funny…you don’t look any different…”  Dean added as he walked back over to the table, taking his seat in front of his beer.

Why Hope Estheim is ‘accidentally’ one of Final Fantasy’s most well developed side characters

I was with a couple of good friends of mine that visited during the summer. We hanged out and played soccer and went fishing, as much as I hated it. We also played some games and then the other day one of them asked me what I thought about the new games coming out. Final Fantasy XV was part of that subject and before I knew it we started talking about Final Fantasy as a whole.

Then FF XIII was brought up and two of my buddies asked me right of the bat if it was as terrible as people said it was. I had to say I was shocked that they didn’t even try to play it, but I suppose when people exaggerate and it catches on, it becomes a consensus that whatever reaction is given must be the absolute answer. I told them that they should play it especially since it’s so cheap now. I talked to them about the game structure and was honest about the linear 2-3 hours that goes on to a traditional style FF overworld you can explore.

They asked me about Lightning and I told them they should play the game, again experiencing and talking about a game are two different things. But as things went on I started talking about Hope and before you start thinking that I hyped this character up to my friends I found myself having difficulties. Because truthfully I hated Hope when he was introduced. Not disliked, hated.

Powerful words for a video game character, I know. But that got me thinking, did Square Enix create this character as a typical reluctant hero/tragic innocent youth quota that they seem to like to have in every FF game. I mean for goodness sake Rydia mother was killed when Cecil Harvey followed the commands of the King that ordered for Rydia’s village to be destroyed in FF IV.  Rydia then becomes one of Cecil’s trusted partners after he tries to become a white knight. But Hope Estheim is different than any other side character. In fact I’m convinced Square Enix accidentally made Hope become one of the most unique developed characters in the lore of Final Fantasy. Before you roll your eyes at my wild statement I want to remind you that I hated the brat the first few hours into the game.

With that being said you’re going to have to forgive me if I go into details that may (or may not) change your mind about Hope Estheim. So what all Final Fantasy games consist of and what we as fans expect out of the series are always the same 2 or 3 things.

  1. A unique universe that grabs your attention
  2. A cast of characters that you want to get behind
  3. (OPTIONAL) Luxurious hair For number 3 it’s kind of a thing with newer games and I’ll be honest everybody looks mighty fly in those cut scenes. So how did Final Fantasy XIII do? (According to me)

A unique universe that grabs your attention?


A cast of characters that you want to get behind?

VERDICT: Hmm…lets dig in on that one…

Claire Farron AKA Lightning the main protagonist who is a guardian corps soldier who is stoic and strong. On a mission to save her crystalized sister.

Snow Villiers a renegade member of NORA that wants to fight against the acting government known as the Sanctum. Also trying to save his fiancée Serah Farron the younger sibling of Lightning.

Sazh Katzroy a pilot who is forced to walk a path to save his son, and well-armed with pistols.

Oerba Dia Vanille and Fang are two Pulse inhabitants that are trying to save their people and fates after being crystalized. Gifted in magic and used to fighting.

Then there’s Hope Estheim Here’s the official description from the game.

“Hope is a normal boy from a normal family whose childhood on Cocoon can best be described as uneventful. Inexperienced in the ways of the world, and won’t turn to his mother for protection, he is completely unprepared for the turmoil into which his life is thrown when he is unexpectedly caught up in the Sanctum’s brutal Purge.”

    He doesn’t fit in with the rest does he? In fact there is no indication that he can fight or has any real reason to worry until his mother dies. Then that’s when the magic happens… From the beginning you have your standard 14 year old Hope Estheim that about 24 hours ago was just another teenage boy with first world problems. In fact you might even go as far as to call the boy selfish and self-centered. I know I did.

    But as the Purge occurred and innocent people were hauled away by PSICOM soldiers to execute them to cover up their mess; Hope and his mother are caught up in one of those buses. When Hope is trying to escape and Snow saves them all before Nora Estheim decides to lend the resistance team N.O.R.A (I know) something terrible happens. Nora (Hope’s mom) dies saving Snow. I don’t remember how many seconds Hope had to mourn his mother. I think it was 1.85455 seconds, because you know; there’s fighting going on. I’m not going to go through all the details for Hope just enough to make it easy to understand how interesting he is at this point.

    If you said ‘meh’ don’t worry you were the majority of people (myself included) that felt that way.Here’s the awesome part. The way the game is designed characters can level up by using your CP to learn different abilities. How you choose to spend your CP is up to you, but Hope right off the bat is the weakest character in terms of HP. (He’s just a kid with no fighting experience after all) However if you think, well with any final fantasy game you can always tweak weapons and armor to make up for the weak points you would be half right. This is a character that is impressionable and is constantly running away from trouble. When Lightning takes him under her wing one of the coolest and most adorable partnerships is formed (that’s for another time though) and they play on each other’s strengths.

    YOU: Wait I thought you said Hope sucks? What strength does he have?

    Well he happens to be the strongest character in terms of magic. People argue that Vanille is better, but out of experience of the two Hope seems to be more versatile, and I swear that his magic attacks do much more damage. But that wasn’t what I consider to be Hope’s real strength. No his secret weapon is a subtle one. Something that probably many players missed out on. He’s normal. Yup that’s it, the fact that he is a normal person makes him strong.

    Case and point, Lightning the main character has a will that won’t be stopped. Although she is very strong physically her ability in strategy is more instinctive than anything. But she is also conditioned to trust no one other than her sister. At one point in the game she is stranded with the other characters and goes on her own to find a way out. She happens to bump into Sazh, Vanille, and Hope later on. In a span of 30 seconds she goes from wanting to hurt Snow, to fighting Sanctum while starring daggers at Cocoon (the world they live in) and finally leaving the three characters while turning to Hope and Vanille and saying next time they meet they may be enemies.

    I know. The girl can’t help it. Here’s where Hope’s first sign of strength kicks in. While he is using a rationalization for his mother’s death he traces it all to Snow. Being a character that is cocky and loud Snow doesn’t make it easier for Hope to dislike the man.

    If anything Hope is dealing with the trauma that he didn’t have proper time to get over. He didn’t even cry when his mom died (sadly when he tells his father later about Nora’s death Hope’s father cries). Hope doesn’t when his mother died, that is terrible and honestly something that no kid should go through.

    Throughout their adventure Hope is paired up with Lightning out a mutual relationship. Hope’s hometown is where Lightning wants to go so he agrees to take her there. While Hope wants to follow her so he can learn how to toughen up. He wants Snow dead because that’s the way he wants to shift the blame. When Lightning and Hope are teaming up two things happen that change both characters.

    For Hope: He learns how to control his emotions better. Focusing on a task is easier if you have your feelings in check. It also helps him direct his plan to kill Snow. Operation NORA is what he calls it.

    Secondly there is an unknown ability that he has. He is very smart, using information given to him to sort out logical approaches for solutions. In a funny way he does sort of become the spirit leader of the group where in two cases has all party members just stare at him in awe. 

    There is also a sixth sense that he has, but I think that may have to do with his magic ability. Basically he is (adorably) taking point while Lightning watches the rear and Hope stops and randomly grabs Lightning to hide behind shelter as PSICOM patrol units hover over them within seconds.

    Impressive and it happens a few times in the game as well. For Lightning she gets more things out of their partnership. First is the fact that Lightning learns how to look at things from a broad perspective. Trust me she’s smart, in fact she’s always prepared for all random encounters. However whenever she is on ‘Serah’ mode she gets tunnel vision and focuses only in the here and now. This isn’t all bad, but in a key moment of the game Hope finally brings her to Palompolum the location Lightning wanted to go to.

    While they are hiding from PSICOM through an underground facility she and Hope encounter a Fal’Cie called Carbuncle, which is responsible for the food distribution of the people. Hope and Lightning stare at the thing and Lightning makes a clear cut statement about how she sees these Fal’Cies as conveniences. Hope casually brings up the thought that really all Fal’Cies do is keep them (people) as pets. This makes her open her eyes (literally) and suddenly has a clear vision of who is really responsible for all this.

    Also this is the first time she willingly admits that she doesn’t know what to do. That is the second thing she got out of Hope.

    Being honest with herself and with others.

    Usually she would make an off remark about how things were in her way. Or if somebody complained she would dismiss it and move on. But with Hope around she is more open about these things and in terms of character development makes her better for it. Thirdly Lightning makes a friend. Which isn’t a joke by the way it’s actually really touching, because within a moment of almost abandoning Hope in the beginning of the game she unleashes Odin.

    Quickly after that she and Hope work together and tame Odin. Within moments she tells him to call her ‘Light’ and as the two venture off they become closer. My favorite moment with these two is actually during a time Hope is resting and Lightning gets asked about Snow. She goes on a tantrum about the guy and the way the camera positions Hope listening on the ground makes it look like two kids talking about what’s bothering the other.

    Its adorable is what that is. But enough about that because there is another thing Lightning learns from Hope. Hope in many ways becomes Lightning’s substitute for Serah. Even if people don’t want to admit it, she tries to not repeat past mistakes from Serah with Hope; who again is a 14 year old kid that doesn’t belong in this mess. It also makes it more important for her to keep him safe since she later reveals to him her personal life.

    About her parents deaths and how she had to be tough as Serah’s only remaining guardian and family. The Lightning nickname is also explained to him, again vital information that for whatever reason she only tells him about. So there are similarities in their back story already and yet they couldn’t be much further apart in characters.

    Good stuff huh? It’s called character development.

    So what does all this have to do with why Hope Estheim is such a unique developed character? Ah well then I hope you took notes, because I just established how crucial and how (at this point) motivated he is to avenge his mother’s death by killing Snow. The gift that Serah gave Lightning on her birthday was a survival knife.

    Lightning let Hope ‘borrow’ it to help him get stronger. There comes a time when Hope does give the knife back to her after realizing that killing Snow was not the way to go. There is a hug yes, but I honestly don’t see much from that other than relief. As far as the story goes after that, its Hope’s world essentially. You see him lead the group into Grand Pulse. Point out facts that would make the party members realize how strong they really were.

    And probably the most crucial part is he becomes (get ready to roll your eyes) the guidance of ‘hope’ through their battles.

    YOU: Okay so maybe Hope is a little bit better than I thought he was. So he improves a bit too. I still don’t see why he’s such a big deal though.

    There is a scene where Hope is by himself looking out at Grand Pulse and Vanille joins him. She asks him if he’s thinking about something. They have a nice conversation about cause and effect and this is where Hope shines through.

    He explains that up to this point, he’s had to accept that sometimes what you know to be true ends up being a lie; (maturity coming through) but maybe if you work hard enough you can make that lie become truth. That is called hope.

    And that sense of idealism follows Hope through his adulthood where we all know he becomes a director with God like ambitions. (He builds a planet) Imagine putting that in your, “Hello my name is,” name tag.

    Final Fantasy XIII-2 is essentially a time traveling adventure game with Hope Estheim being the John Connor of humanity. I’m serious, the guy is fixed on getting assassinated in 3 days in one the many paradox endings. That and the fact that Hope seems to be the only one who doesn’t screw up royally, and typically is left with fixing the mess Serah and Noel make. I would also like to add that Hope takes up Lightning mantle as Serah’s guardian.

    From the moment they meet up again he is very affectionate and constantly cheers her up. It’s only more adorable when you realize that how Lightning was Hope’s protector in the first game. Hope is returning the favor with Lightning being gone in Valhalla.

    YOU: Ah wait a second Lightning chose Noel to protect Serah though? Isn’t that a bit farfetched to say that Hope is the one doing the job?

    Well I’ll put it to you this way, Hope made sure Serah was safe with every step of the way. There is even a moment where Serah and Noel are finally united with Lightning in Valhalla and somehow Hope guessed the road these two would meet was in fact Valhalla and sends an item capsule with a personal message to Serah.

    The last two gifts in that area are from Lightning and Hope. The recipient in mind? Serah. That and the fact that Hope becomes the gamer’s representation at how frustrating it is to see Serah go through so much to find Snow and he’s off doing his hero act. (Yes he had one or two valid points) but he could just ask for help and gotten it done more effective. Anyways Hope tells him off and I remember doing this…

    Keep that sass strong Hope! Lightning would be proud.

     Anyways besides the ambition and the guidance that Hope provides to the game there is one thing that remains constant. He still misses his mother, as he should I suppose. His father passes away after a while, but it’s implied that Hope and his dad lived together in peace. Traveling 100 years into the future Hope still had the idea that maybe he could bring back his mother along with Fang, Vanille, and Lightning.


    Remember this! It’s going to be on the test!

    So we all know what happens at the end of the game right? Serah dies and Lightning is put into a state of crystallization or something like that. What about Hope? Still has to keep his job along with the other guys. There is a novel now that explains the details of what happens between XIII-2 and Lightning Returns. It’s very cool and interesting to read, since its canon and it involves Hope a lot.

    There is some very heartbreaking moments that the poor guy has to go through, but I don’t want to include that stuff since it’s not what most people can experience anyways.

    The novel is called Tracer of Lost Memories and it’s only printed in Japan. English translations are available online, but if you’re not into that just stay with me.

    So the final game we have Hope Estheim alone in the abandoned Cocoon Hope named “Bhunivelze”. Also curiously the name of the God of all Gods, the Mighty Bhunivelze. (Its foreshadowing)

    For a lack of a better term Bhunivelze is an asshole.

    Especially after what he made Hope go through. Not going to bother going into specifics just know Hope was practically tortured for 169 years. In this final game Lightning Returns, Hope is tasked with giving Lightning the savior of the world; the missions to save as many souls as possible.

    With both characters a shell of their former selfs, not having any emotions nor being able to understand why they have been picked by Bhunivelze himself. (You don’t want to know by the way, this God is sick and twisted) Hope is physically regressed into his 14 year old self again. Although still an adult in mind, he explains later on that Bhunivelze is using his body as a vessel.

    So through Hope, Bhunivelze is watching Lightning’s every move. To give Hope a bit of credit he plays some 3D chess with Bhunivelze and makes sure that he knows enough to help Lightning with her mission to find Serah, without knowing too much just in case Bhunivelze is hearing in.

    There is a lot of moments Lightning and Hope share, that I would not like to spoil for the most part.

    But the highest point is when Hope is finally done with his job and Bhunivelze is ready to use him as a vessel. Hope manages to say his final goodbye to Lightning. In the entire conversation Hope is the one assuring her that she’ll be fine and that she will succeed. He leaves her saying he’s glad that he met her all those years ago and expresses that he’s not afraid anymore. This right here is an important moment. Because there is a comparison of two similar moments that symbolize the beginning and the end of Hope’s growth.

    Here is Hope taking point for Lightning for the first time in Final Fantasy XIII. The beginning of his development.

    Finally the adult mind trapped into his youthful body in Final Fantasy Lightning Returns. The ending of his journey in this world.

    Notice anything at the last two images? He’s grown up. He went from being a scared youth that depended on others for help. To a person that did whatever it took to keep people from losing hope.

    He kept his namesake alive to the end. And here is where I will tell you I’m a sucker for characters that welcome death in happiness. Something about that mentality is just powerful to me. I’ll tell you right now, if I knew I was going to die in 10 minutes I would be scared shitless. So many things left for me to do, and even a few regrets I’d like to clear up. So to have the mindset of finding peace with yourself till the end to me, is the definition of strength.

    YOU: Alright, I get it Hope is awesome. But uh didn’t you say there would be a test or something?

    AH! I’m glad you remembered! Why yes indeed, because the last part is coming up. Like I said before, up until Lightning Returns Hope was restless to bring his mother back.

    So guess what happens?

    Lightning makes the choice to give up her life in exchange for her friends to be united together in a new world. With Hope being the last soul she saved, they have a faceless exchange where Lightning tempts Hope with….you guessed it!

    There she is! Hope’s wish right in front of him. Hope takes his mother’s hand and guides her to-

    I rest my case.

    Hello! Thanks for the request, it was really cute :) I have another one : How would Sinbad, Kouen, Judal and Ali Baba react if their s/o make a declaration to them in the first place (so before they become a couple) If there is too many characters, don't bother yourself and just do the ones you prefer :)

    i’m glad you enjoyed it and i hope you enjoy this one to! don’t worry about the characters because it’s not to many at all (/^▽^)/

    Sinbad: While Sinbad would be ecstatic over the fact that his crush felt the same way that he did, he wouldn’t be able to stop his pride from being a little hurt. He would’ve had an eccentric and romantic plan as to how he was going to confess to them all ready to go. He’d suck up his pride though and tell his partner that he returned their feelings before asking them out on a date. 

    At least some of his plan could still be put to use.

    Kouen: A proud smile would come across Kouen’s face as his crush confessed to him. He’d try not to show to much of it, but he would be overflowing with happiness. The fact that his crush had had the guts to confess to him would make him feel even better about their future relationship. With a nod of his head, he would take his crushed hand and place a gentle kiss on it before telling them of his own feelings.

    Judal would smirk as his partner confessed to him and his eyes would light up with glee. With the smirk still on his face, he’d take this as an opportunity to tease them and get them flustered. He’d casually ask if ‘that meant that he was allowed to take them to bed now?’ or ‘so you think I’m cute huh?’ Once he was done with his teasing however, a small but genuine smile would come onto his face as he to, told them how he felt.

    Alibaba: At first, Alibaba wouldn’t even realise that crush was confessing to him. He’d be to caught up with staring at them and admiring them to actually take in what they were saying, so when he heard the ending of the confession, he got quite the shock. With a beet read face, he’d ask them to repeat what they had said. Once that was done, he’d nervously take their hand and tell them that he felt the same way and that he intended to protect them with his life.
