Okay so someone (moi) went skating today and I just…. couldn’t stop thinking of Snowbaz??? So here’s some headcanons that /might/ get turned into an actual fic idk anymore XDD
So /technically/ they don’t really know each other bc school is a big place and ye
So Simon has a job at the local skate rink as one of those ppl that u know kinda just skate around the rink and help the ppl who fell get up
So ye here u are with Simon Snow with his golden curls and beat up pair of roller skates and ye
And one day Baz’s step mum forces him to take his sisters skating
Oh boy oh boy oh boy
So those little butts they force Baz to rent a pair of skates with them (cuz they “can't” skate)
So y’know Baz laces up the kids skates and then his skates and stands up
At first it seems like he’ll be fine
And the chiddlers go and skate no problem
Baz doesn’t get two feet without falling
But freaking Mordelia is like “C’monnnnn Bazzzzz.”
So shakily Baz gets onto the skate rink and he’s like uber embarrassed bc what the frick Mordelia you can skate perfectly fine by urself why couldn’t I just stand on the side and laugh at the ppl falling instead of being the person falling?
So I mean he almost falls a lot but it’s okay cuz he’s hugging the wall and it’s keeping him on his feet (but he is forced to skate in shame as kids that are like 5 years old zoom past him)
And then he gets to that part all skate rinks have that have no bars u know those places
For a second he thinks he has it and gets rlly excited for a sec (that dork)
And then he falls on his face
(As he puts it, his life flashed before his eyes)
Then Simon frickin Snow that graceful dorkface comes in swiftly and reaches a hand down to Baz
“Are you okay, Sir?”
Baz tries to get up but when he looks up at Simon he practically falls again cuz what the frick nobody has the right to be that hot
(Simon is literally thinking the exact same thing and it’s a miracle he isn’t looking like a tomato rn)
“Fine,” Baz grumbles as he gets to his feet
And to his embarrassment, he slips again, right into Simon Snow’s arms
So Baz is like super embarrassed and flustered and it’s a mess
And Simon is like squealing on the inside bc WHAT THE FRICK OH MY GODDDDDD but he keeps his cool bc he’s Simon idk
Anyway Baz skates away basically dying
But like the whole night Baz keeps falling and Simon keeps skating to him laughing and saying “Are you sure you don’t want my help?”
Baz denies every time
Soon the night comes to an end
And both Baz and Simon are a little sadder than they’d like to admit
(Those dorks. They crushin)
The next week
Oh my gods Baz takes his sisters again
He doesn’t admit it but he wants to see Simon again
So the same thing happens as before
But at the end of the night Simon asks, “What’s ur name?”
THEN MY GODS OKAY WOW
So it kinda happens every week
They look forward to it
Simon ends up telling Penny about him
“Oh my god Penny he’s so pretty.”
“Did you see his eyes? Aren’t they amazing?”
“Pennnyyyyyyyyyy I’m not done with my storyyyyyy.”
Then one day he calls her at like 1 in the morning
“What is it now Simon? It’s 1am can’t I sleep?”
“Penny I….” Simon bites his lip
“What is it Simon?”
“How did you know you loved Micah?”
“Wha–is this about Agatha again?”
“I–what? No I’m just… curious.”
Penny takes a deep breath
“It’s when all you can think about it is them. It’s when you look forward to see them everyday and you miss them with every part of your soul.”
“I think I like Baz.”
Okay so cut to the next week
Simon sees Baz with his sisters and skates over to him
He’s like rlly nervous
But he goes up to Baz
“Hey um Baz?” Simon says. Baz turns around and to his surprise sees Simon
“Um… do you want to skate with me?”
They skate together
And it’s sorta killing Simon cuz BAZ IS SO SLOW
But his heart is racing like oh my god oh my god ohmygod
He’s rlly pink and Baz is wondering what the frick is going on
Like what the hell Simon?
Baz is too lost in thought that he doesn’t see some kid skate in front of him until he almost crashes into them and he doesn’t but he falls
“Baz are you alright?”
Simon holds out a hand
For the first time, Baz takes it
Electricity shocks through both of their arms
Baz stands up
Both of their hands are still linked
And then Penny that little devil who is in charge of the music changes the song in the middle of another song and plays “Can You Feel The Love Tonight”
Simon is so red and like god damnit Penny you had one job
But Baz is looking at him in a way that… he rlly likes
And suddenly they find themselves drifting closer together
(Or Baz is sliding that’s also a possibility)
And then my gods Simon is pretty much like “whatever” and kisses Baz
Baz’s head: FJDJBWKSHBWKHSHW
Simon’s head: KEHAKSGWHWNKFKENWHWN
basically both of them are dying but they like love it a lot omgs
And then the moment is ruined as Baz slips and both of them crash to the floor
“You should have told her differently,’ said Hermione, still with that maddeningly patient air. ‘You should have said it was really annoying, but I’d made you promise to come along to the Three Broomsticks, and you really didn’t want to go, you’d much rather spend the whole day with her, but unfortunately you thought you really ought to meet me and would she please, please come along with you, and hopefully you’d be able to get away more quickly? And it might have been a good idea to mention how ugly you think I am too,’ Hermione added as an afterthought.
’But I don’t think you’re ugly,’ said Harry, bemused.

To avoid spamming the dashboard I have compiled the Inbox ASKs and answer them together in this post (‘∀’●)❤ ( A few questions are repeated, so I have combined them as one.) Questions that are not listed here, the answer will be revealed in future comics 👍
Again, thank you so so much for the interest, encouragement and support❤
♛18.06. Update: Sorry for the late reply, I have compiles some more anon asks under the “Read more.” :) Again thank you for the questions! ♛So Sorry Guys. Link fixed
✒ Is the Fox personal bodyguard a male or female?
The Fox is a lady…? To be honest, I didn’t have a gender in mind when I design the fox, so feel free to interpret it anyway you like :)
✒ Will we be seeing any more new faces in the animal court?
There will be other minor characters, such as other soldiers, maids, butlers, gardeners and royal members. And of course the King and Queen of the Goose and Swan kingdom. However majority of the story will still focus on the core 7 below.
It takes me a while to understand the title until I remember the team Nekoma is facing is Sarukawa, Saru as in Monkey. OMG. How many animal-named teams we’ll encounter in the Nationals? Though admittedly it’s a good cheat, Furudate-sensei will have endless inspiration to take in giving names to the teams.
That said, it’s such a dream come true. I still can’t believe that we’re having more Nekoma-centric chapters. Poor @multifandomsfujoshi bears the brunt of my enthusiasm when I realize the absolute gem this chapter is. We’re yelling quite a lot too XDD.
In this chapter we’ve got more insight into Kenma’s mind and particularly Kenma’s first year. Yes, you read that right, we’re seeing young Nekoma’s second year trio!
Kenma has found his own way to deal with troublesome things (read: physical activity)
Fukunaga speaks!!!… In puns??!!!! And laughs at his own jokes?? That’s… adorable???
Yamamoto is very much like Tanaka. No wonder they get along so well. He doesn’t know how to hold back, either. He also has good self-awareness to know what he does wrong.
Surprisingly, or not, Yamamoto and Kenma get along like cats and dogs, well, I don’t think that’s the best description. They’re just like cats that don’t get along.
That it takes water to stop them from fighting. Seriously, water.
That’s exactly what I do to fighting cats in my neighborhood in order to get them to stop and scramble. It’s the only way I (and Gretta) know, and it makes us laugh out loud at the solution Fukunaga comes up with.
It also kinda surprises me how loud and forceful Kenma can be when he’s annoyed as hell. It looks like a rare occurrence, and whether it’s coincidence or not, Kuroo is likely to be the last person Kenma raised his voice at.
(Kuroo’s face though)
Pfft. It looks like Fukunaga has resorted to having buckets of water around in the case of Kenma and Yamamoto arguing. Honestly, I didn’t expect to find the two second years to be such troublemakers. They’re like Nekoma’s Kageyama and Hinata.
Back to the match!
I must admit I was getting worried. I have no idea what Nekoma’s going to do when they’re obviously targeting Kenma.
When you see Nekomata smile like that you know sh*t’s going down.
OMG. O. M. G.
Kuroo’s just…. Kuroo’s just jumped to cut off the ball’s trajectory?
That’s just… that’s just. WOW.
(lemme just pick my jaw up from the floor)
It’s the second time when Nekoma and their characteristic are mentioned, it is Kuroo who’s shown, not Kenma. Remember this iconic panel?
I think… despite being the brain, Kenma is not the embodiment of Nekoma’s flexibility.
It is Kuroo.
Of all Nekoma players, Kuroo is the most versatile player. He can do both offense and defense. He’s a force to reckon with whether he’s at the front or at the back. In this match, he’s the first to adapt to the situation, showing the rest of the team how to.
This is the kind of captain Kuroo is, he’s the captain who leads by example, by becoming the embodiment of Nekoma. He’s aware of Kenma’s weakness, and instead of forcing him to change, he’s the one who changes to adjust and support the brain of Nekoma.
Honestly, this chapter is such an eye-opener to see what kind of captain Kuroo actually is and why he is the captain.
Yaku is really like Suga, who’s not above stirring up problem himself and finding entertainment in his kouhai’s shenanigans. Kai is similar to Asahi that he’s not a forceful personality, which leaves Kuroo to maintain order in the team. It takes Kuroo leaving for few minutes for the first years get in trouble. It reminds me of that meme where the guy carrying box of pizza only to find the room burning. It looks like Kuroo suffers as much as Daichi.
No wonder why Kuroo’s the obvious choice for captain.
He has the respect of his kouhais even when he’s only second year himself and not the captain yet (and somehow Yamamoto knows how close Kenma is to Kuroo)
Kenma listens to him, which leads to his attempt to talk to Yamamoto, however badly it turns out.
He can be damn scary and observant. Look at the face he’s making as he yells at Kenma, and how the hell he notice that Kenma’s slacking off? No wonder Tsukishima develops so quickly under his tutelage, Kuroo is a good teacher. He’s not laid back at all.
He is in the same wavelength with Nekomata. I don’t think it’s just Nekomata’s thoughts when it happens to show Kuroo’s back.
Things are getting interesting. Looking forward to see what Nekoma comes up with.
Nekoma’s first years getting along (and Lev learning so seriously and earnestly)
Due to some personal reasons, this blog will be going on semi-permanent hiatus. But I’ve loved, still love, Eruri, and this fandom, for so long, and so much, that I needed some closure. And the best way I’ve thought to do that is just to compile the Eruri Fics that I am eternally grateful for having read, and which have all given me so much, and sharing the list with you all. Most of these are classics, I just needed to take the time to thank the authors. Please enjoy, and thank you a thousand times, to all the godly writers this fandom has been blessed with.
First Eruri fic I ever read, it is the reason I read hundreds more. WWII AU, featuring the perfect blend of amazing plot, realistic characters, and relationships that stay with the reader weeks after finishing. The characterizations in this are unforgettable, and you can never let go. I know I never will.
Canonverse. Could compete with any literature classic throughout the ages. Hands down one of the best things ever written. Kudos to you if you can finish this without crying. Being numb from grief so the tears won’t flow is cheating and doesn’t count. So poetic. Truly unforgettable.
Future AU. I cannot express how much I truly love Nicole’s writing. The plot is so original and the characters are written so beautifully I would do anything to erase my memory so I can reread this again like the first time. This is just as applicable toall of her other fics which I’ve all read, and you should too.
Modern AU. Anything birbwin writes is a guaranteed masterpiece, Eruri Ficlets & Mc’Drabbles being proof of this (yes, including chapter 47). The Rat Catcher was so eye-opening and stimulating that it’s really a must-read for anyone and everyone. No-one’s the same after reading it.
Modern AU. Again, can never go wrong with lost’s writing. Beautiful, beautiful writing, and you hold such a strong investment to the characters. Really, just go have a look at everything they’ve written. So, so beautiful. Have I mentioned beautiful. Also the go to blog for any asks you may have to do with any canon stuff.
Canonverse. Had to put it somewhere, nevermind the header of slow burn. Of course, anything stereobone writes is a deserving classic, and this newest fic is no exception. Original plot, mysterious and perfectly written, it really encapsulates the essence of the characters, and leaves you wondering. A must-read.
Canonverse. I have never laughed so hard reading any multi-chaptered fic. Actually that’s a lie, Dirty Kisses (must read) got pretty close. I love them, and belied by engaging plot, they’re a must-read. The writing is exquisite and it only ever leaves you wanting more.
Canon…verse….? Featuring two very different (but also very much the same) worlds. Just read it, I don’t know what else to say. Guaranteed to make you tear up from laughing too much. I’d also highly recommend from Cherry, (everything they’ve written) but in particular Aversion(eye-opening angst); Celebrity Ballroom(mild angst but mainly not(?)) Remember Meand of course, Again. Have I mentioned how much i love Cherry’s writing? (I love it.)
Once again, thank you all for making the past couple of years of my life so unexplainably enjoyable. And if you’re new to the fandom, lucky you, you get to discover all these amazing people for the first time.
the night used to be able to heal the holes fused together by diluted veins, etching the constellations you left behind into a formulated knock. and though the inches of sentences around my throat never held my sight like the thought of you dreaming, I still like to think that sleep finds you when peace escapes me, that the clouds in my head only form when I look away. I don’t want to be another letter that crawls deeper into your lips to feel winter. I don’t want to sing over the radio to have a conversation with two people. I don’t want to open the window to cover the footprints of an indecisive goodbye. maybe I’m just another wave in the ocean that has more tears than a want to lead you home. maybe I’m another shadow kissing the ground so you can feel growth. which drink makes me no one? after what smoke can I gather enough ash to forgive the kiss you couldn’t return? how many pills can build me a year worth falling apart? how deep can we cut into the earth’s core until we forget why we’re smiling? my dear, tell me what did we do with forever? darling, tell me what we did with hello? we turned an apology into hell on earth, we turned love into another lost chapter left near old libraries and written deep into your skin is another excuse as to why we could have never worked. this is why people leave, this is why we accept the bitter things. sweeter things will come along, this is not the end. life is strange, love is weird. i think about you more than i should and that’s something to laugh at, where were you when i needed you the most? it only hurts because i care too much, this is my i’m trying real hard to not give a fuck poem, but it still matters because no matter how much i’ve tried to let your mistakes go, i just can’t bear the smell of betrayal with more knives pointing towards my back. how many times will you claim my heart? how many times will you cut us open just to find out that we’ve been alive all of this time? the bleeding doesn’t stop and the hearts keep beating. one second at a time, but we’re still going to find a way to mess things up. you say that you want to fix things, it’ll work this time. i’m kind of aiming for the ground because the stars have abandoned us. this isn’t love. this isn’t a safe way to live. this is biting the dust, this is taking a vampire out for lunch in broad daylight. this is wolves finally breaking bones during a full moon, this is why artists and musicians plead insanity to their craft. this is why my heart hurts when you look at me like you didn’t mean for things to end up like this. and this is me trying to make things right for myself. this is not an apology, i’m done with sorry. this is your chance to show your true colors. and in truth, at some point, i would’ve given everything away just for a taste of happiness. people like me. we love and we give it our all, so if i tell you that i just don’t care anymore, you fucked up. that’s the truth about this whole ordeal, you fucked up. and my emotions may try to claw its way out of this casket, but as long as my mind tells me that there’s a chance you’ll turn on me again. i’ll rip out my own throat before i give you another chance to hurt me again. no more apologies, if you want to fix this, then fix it. i’ll be waiting.
Story Summary: Being friend with Sam and Dean Winchester had been the best part of your life. But then they were gone, and you had nothing to distract you from the physical and verbal abuse from your parents. Years pass, and your parents suddenly vanish. When Sam and Dean come help to find them, you aren’t sure what they will do when they discover your dark past.
A/N: Mentions of Abuse. Also, sorry this one is shorter than I wanted, but at least I got something out!! Now I’m going to fall asleep and hope I feel better!
With your legs tucked underneath you, you continued to stare
out the window of the Impala, watching as trees and buildings sped past you,
nothing but a blur. Your mind a million miles away as you thought about what
lay ahead. If your parents were still alive, and whether you cared if they were
Truthfully, that part of you was numb. Your parents had
treated you so horribly, that you weren’t sure if you wanted them back or not.
Sure, they were your parents, and you should love them no matter what. But this
might be the break you were looking for. Feeling horrible for thinking that
way, you quickly brushed away a spare tear, amazed that even after everything
you had gone through you could still cry.
Killian hasn’t even been below decks of the Jolly Roger for an hour when his talking phone tones. He withdraws it from under his pillow and is not at all surprised to see that the little word message that has come in is from Emma.
I miss you, it reads.
It takes him a while – Emma’s always amuses at what she calls his “hunt and peck” method of crafting a message – but he manages to write back, I miss you, too, love. Go to sleep and tomorrow will be here before you know it.
Her reply comes through in less than a minute. I can’t sleep without you.
And less than a minute after that, his talking phone rings. The Emma button appears for him so he touches it and presses the phone to his ear. “You know, love, it won’t do to have the bride collapsing on her walk down the aisle because she didn’t sleep the night before.”
“I told you,” she replies lovingly, “I can’t sleep without you.”
A smile spreads across his lips. “Are you sure that’s the only reason for your insomnia?”
“All right, I may be a little excited, too.”
“Oh, just a little?”
“Shut up,” she chuckles.
He laughs as well. As much as he adores teasing her, however, he knows that they both need to get some sleep. Tomorrow is going to be a long day and they’ll need their rest. “Okay, tell you what, love. How about I talk to you until you’re relaxed enough to sleep?”
In just that one word, Killian can tell that was exactly what she wanted him to do. And since tomorrow will represent the start of the next chapter of their journey together, he decides to tell her their story from the beginning. “Once upon a time, there was a pirate and a lost princess …”
She makes a little snuffling sound into the phone but doesn’t protest. And so he talks. He tells her of portals and jungles and lost years. He tells her of spiraling magic and stolen hearts and fights against darkness. Of Camelot and magic and the Underworld and how, through it all, the pirate and the princess grew closer and closer and discovered that they did indeed share the most powerful magic of all: True Love.
He’s just at the point in the story where the princess has asked the pirate to move in with her when the steady rhythm of her breathing registers. “Emma?” he whispers into the phone.
Oh yes, he has indeed finally talked her to sleep. He smiles and keeps his voice soft so as not to rouse her further. “Hang up the phone, love.”
“Mm-kay. Love you.”
“I love you, too. I’ll see you in the morning.”
Once he’s sure she’s actually disconnected the call, he sets his phone down and closes his own eyes. That night, they dream the same dreams of the pirate and the princess, a lost little boy and a lost little girl, finding home in each other.
So, like last year, I was once again lucky enough to have a Jared Meet&Greet, and got to be close to a tired yet focused Jared Padalecki (who’d just woken up from a nap in between his autograph session and his M&G).
Before anyone began asking questions, there was a knock on the door but no one entered. Jared looked at a staff member and asked her “Is it Ackles? Is he fucking with me again?“ - then laughed. Apparently, it wasn’t Jensen who then joined us for Jared’s M&G, but Jensen’s stunt double. Why he was at the convention I have no idea, but he sat down and observed the M&G (as well as a few panels, I noticed later that day) - and confirmed a few facts when Jared asked him about something.
Jared’s chapter in ‘Family Don’t End With Blood’ was mentioned and whether or not he would consider writing a book. His answer was no. He said he’d spent a whole year writing that chapter and, besides not having a lot of time on his hands, he’d had some anxiety writing it (I guess because he was afraid it wasn’t good enough). However, Jared said he felt like he owed it to us to be honest about it all. I admit I was struggling not to tear up at this point, having not only read his chapter but had been in Rome during JIB6 when Jared had gone through his breakdown.
A fan mentioned her reason behind telling Jared a funny story during his solo panel (the beenie/penis story - I’m sure there’re videos of it if someone doesn’t know what I’m talking about), that it was because people often tell Jared sad stories and she therefore wanted to make him laugh instead. She also said that he took on too much on his shoulders, that he was not alone in this, and that we were all there to carry some of the weight with him. Jared appreciated that.
He also got some questions about his love for watches, his ‘Venatore’ wine (Jared said he could talk forever about his love for both watches and wine) and his favorite author.
By then, the M&G was almost over but Jared luckily picked me to ask the last question. My question was: “When you do emotional scenes on the show with Jensen, do you think of something sad? Or does the emotion come natural to you after working together for so long and being so close in real life?“
I got really distracted by the fact that Jared was looking straight at ME and answering MY question, but this is what I remember of his answer:
Jared said it was a great question. He said that he, in the beginning of the show, did think of sad things to bring out that kind of emotion, but proceeded to say that he doesn’t do that anymore. Jared said that he hates when the script says “Sam cries“ (which is something Jensen also mentioned in his solo panel) because he doesn’t wanna cry unless he feels like the scene calls for it. So if someone writes that in a script or if a director tells him to cry, he’ll say “I appreciate you saying it but I’ve known this character for 12 years, so please don’t ever tell me that again”. Jared mentioned the scene in 12x22 where Dean and Sam had to break through the wall in the bunker. It wasn’t supposed to be an emotional scene, but he and Jensen had felt like the scene called for it. Jared then said that he couldn’t remember if Sam cried during that scene, and I remarked “Well,I did!“ which made Jared laugh.
He mentioned the church scene between Dean and Sam in the episode “Sacrifice“ and how it was originally scripted that Sam should be all tough about it and practically yell his words at Dean. However, that wasn’t what the scene called for. When they’d gone through the scene, Jared (as Sam) had felt the emotion and had teared up, so that’s the direction he had to go with the scene (and thank God for that since it’s one of my favorite scenes!) He continued to talk about how the brain knows the emotion isn’t real but the body doesn’t, so it’s tough having to do emotional scenes - especially when 5 minutes in a scene takes like 14 hours to film.
Jared then talked about how Sam is a tough guy who, nine out of ten times, tries to hold back his tears rather than show them because he wants to be strong. Jared remarked that crying is not a sign of weakness - that you’re also strong when you cry - but that Sam tries to hold it in. Which, Jared said, was also an emotionally draining thing to do. Both for him and Sam.
Note: During his talk about the church scene and how Sam always tries to be tough and not cry, I swear Jared’s eyes turned wet for a second (as well as my eyes did). Whether it was because of what he said or because he was just tired, I can’t know for sure - but I was sitting pretty close to him and he was looking straight into my eyes at the time.
Anyways, Jared also talked about how guest stars often get something (I don’t remember what he called it. Crystallized something) sprayed into their eyes to be able to cry. Jared has only tried that one time, and that was when he was in House of Wax. His character had to cry but Jared couldn’t do it because he had to sit completely still in the scene (where he’s been waxed) and couldn’t use his facial expressions. That was the only time he’d ever needed help to cry in a scene.
Jared then repeated that it was a really good question, but time had run out by then and he had to leave the room. I was more than a little stoked to get such a long and detailed answer to my question - and more than a little awestruck to have Jared’s eyes on me throughout almost his entire answer.
I'm so glad Kirishima is getting so much spotlight, he really deserves it!!!! And it looks like hes gonna get more, since hes in the main group along with Deku, Uraraka and Tsuyu. I;m so hyped!!!
Honestly!!!!!!!!!!! That’s one interesting group tbh, Kirishima and Tsuyu’s interactions are always incredibly adorable to watch and seeing Kirishima interact for so long with pure and good people is gonna be hard on my heart (I mean, you know I’m 100% a bakusquad fan but they’re all at least in part assholes and Kiri fits with them just right, he can be just like Sero and Kaminari and I love it, but then his interactions with Amajiki have been so pure can you imagine an arc filled with that I’m already crying)
I just hope my other faves won’t completely disappear through this arc haha sigh
Anon said: So which Kacchan quote do you like best “Die your bacteria fucks, dieee!” or “BRING YOUR DAMN TRASH TO ME”?
summary: “if you wanna start a fight, you better throw the first punch, make it a good one. and if you wanna make it through the night, you better say my name like the good, the bad, and the dirty.”
or alternatively, a high school au in which dan and phil used to be best friends and are now enemies that hate each other’s guts until it becomes something a little more complicated than they thought.
genre: angst, smut, some fluff
warnings: graphic fighting scenes, a few mentions of blood, friends with benefits, eventual smut and acts will be specified per chapter, enemies to friends with benefits to lovers, e x c r u t i a t i n g l y slow burn
a/n: not going to lie, i’m very excited for this fic and feedback on whether you guys like it too is much appreciated it <3 this is something that has been an idea for a very long time and i thought it was time to write it and see what you guys think! i’m going to try and upload this every thursday. like i said, feedback is appreciated!!! hope you enjoy :))))) <3333
The moment Adrien learned that someone in Japan wrote a manga
about him and Ladybug, he had to have it.
In less than 48 hours, there was a copy of Miraculous Defender LadybugVolume 1 in his hands.
…Not that he could read Japanese. But he could follow along
with the Chinese scanlations and write a French translation of that on sticky notes, carefully cutting
and covering the word balloons with them.
It was worth it to see the look of absolute joy on Alya’s
face when he showed her the next day.
“Please let me take pictures for the Ladyblog, please,
please, please, PLEEEEEEASE!!!” she begged, her phone already in hand.
“Alright, alright!” Adrien said, laughing. “But only the
first chapter, okay? There’s an official version coming out next month and I
won’t ruin it for anyone else.”
“You are ruining nothing,”
Alya insisted. She gleefully flipped through the pages, Nino and Marinette both
reading over her shoulder.
Lunch in the park with his friends went much quicker with
the manga to talk about. Too soon, they were headed back to school, still stuck
on the cliffhanger.
“If Félix doesn’t kiss Ladybug in the next book, I’m going
to scream,” said Alya, manga open in her hands.
“Preach it!” said Nino. He high-fived Alya while Marinette
“I—Ladybug wouldn’t let—th-there’s probably rules or, um…”
Adrien kept quiet, ignoring his growing blush. ‘Félix’ was
Chat’s secret identity in the manga; Ladybug saved him from muggers and the
volume ended with Félix determined to give her a thank-you kiss.
Félix was a very
different person, but…
“You’ve been quiet, bro. What do you think?” Nino asked.
“I think I would kiss her,” Adrien answered absently, not
realizing he’d fumbled his pronouns until Marinette walked into a pole.
“… Did you know you still give me boners?” Yuri asks seriously. Otabek is startled into an incredulous snort. “Don’t laugh, you asshole! It’s tragic and inconvenient and probably going to last until we’re old and can’t get it up anymore.”
“I’m touched,” Otabek replies tonelessly. “You have such a way with words.”
“Yeah, I know.” Yuri grins, all sharp teeth. “Feel free to swoon a little closer into my arms. And on top of my crotch?”
“Fuck off.” Yuri can hear Otabek’s grudging smile, even with his back turned.
This is honestly such a wonderful fic, anything by her is incredible but this is the fic that really shoved me down the Otayuri rabbit hole
Yuri Plisetsky’s life gets thrown out of order when a hot neighbor moves in next door. Unfortunately for Yuri, his new neighbor also happens to be a serial killer. Yuri is convinced he is going to be the next victim. So, there’s that.
This fic is literally hilarious it made me smile so wide my face hurt so if you need a good laugh (in the best possible way) it’s amazing!
These won’t be the last tears he sheds over Victor Nikiforov, but he has hit a point where they stop and leave him numb and dazed.
“He…that was my first kiss,” Yuuri whispers, staring down at his open palms on his lap helplessly.
Yurio makes a noise like he’s just been punched in the gut, and he growls something in Russian that Yuuri doesn’t bother translating. He only looks up when Yurio squats in front of him, firmly and unapologetically taking hold of Yuuri’s empty hands with his own, intense blue-green eyes staring at him.
“You deserve better than him.”
UMMM HONESTLY AMAZING AND HEARTBREAKING AND EVERYTHING ALL IN ONE I HAVE SO MANY FEELINGS I DONT EVEN KNOW HOW TO EXPRESS OVER THIS FIC???
Ever since the coffee shop incident, Otabek personally sends Yuri every single one of his snaps, which are literally all the same three things: Otabek at the gym in a sleeveless shirt, Otabek on a run in a sleeveless shirt, Otabek in his bed in a sleeveless shirt, and JESUS CHRIST, does this guy own anything else?
Or, Otabek is a fuckboy and Yuri can’t deal.
Fuckboy Otabek, need I say more? This fic is incredibly hilarious i got my entire life throughout the entire thing
Since childhood, JJ had told his soulmate everything about his life. JJ’s soulmate on the other hand was not one for sharing. They turned down all of JJ’s offers to meet up. But JJ knew they still cared and that they would meet eventually. He didn’t know that “eventually” would be at the Grand Prix Final.
Soulmate AU where whatever you write on your skin shows up on your soulmate’s.
THIS WHOLE FIC IS REALLY CUTE AND THE ENDING IS ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE I LOVE THIS FIC SO MUCH
She let out a long, slow breath and glanced at Percy, unable to meet his eyes as shame coursed through her. Damn it, she hadn’t had a panic attack in years. Of course it would happen in front of a man who admired her strength and confidence, a Roman warrior that’d sneer at her fragile Greek emotions.
“Thank you,” she said quietly, picking absently at the hem of her skirt. “I’m sorry I got so wound up.”
“You don’t need to apologize,” Percy said. His casual, easy tone sounded forced to Annabeth’s ears and she finally met his gaze. “I get them too. Not so much any more, but… at least you don’t cause minor earthquakes when you lose it.”
“Only with the real bad ones. I was a pretty big mess up here for a couple of years.” He tapped the side of his head, offering her a bitter little smirk. “Do you remember the chapter in the demigod handbook on all the fun mental health issues you get to deal with if you survive the questing and combating for the glory of the gods part? ‘Cause I sure don’t.”
Annabeth snorted out a laugh. “Wow, you got a handbook? You Romans really are prepared for everything.”
what are your thoughts about bakugou and midoriya's relationship? platonic, i mean
I live and die for it, every part of the manga in which that relationship is shown progressing is between my favorite parts of the manga and I’ve reread them a hundred times and cried over them way more than necessary - the battle trial one? yes, the end of terms exam? absolutelyyes holy shit, the post-license exam fight? god yes fuck me that’s my absolute fav, the rescue arc? shit yes between all the reasons why that arc’s my fave the change in the deku/baku relationship is definitely a worthy of note one
It’s an interesting relationship, a painful one that’s making both of them grow so so so much, a rivalry they both need to better each other and keep each other straight on the path to become two great, all-around heroes - I’m not sure they’ll ever end up having the type of relationship Izuku has with Todoroki or Bakugou with Kirishima, I don’t think it’s possible for them to be friends like that, they’re just too different to properly fit like that and to avoid stepping on each other’s toes every single day of their lives they’d have to change their core personalities too much, but they did end up being able to coexist (Bakugou’s even giving Deku tips!!!) and I do think they’ll be able to cooperate and support each other in the end. If one day they’ll be able to make fun of each other in a friendly manner and egg each other on and be honest with each other without it escalating into a full blown fight I’d truly be happy, that’s probably my main dream for this whole manga. For them to have a healthy rivalry, one in which they can maybe even laugh together. I think it might happen, I’m waiting for it to happen
Hi Fran! I’m obsessed with your BakuShimaNari work. Here’s a cute thought to hopefully cheer you up a bit while you’re unable to draw: they’re all in their early 20s and Denki likes to poke/smooth out the little crease between Bakugo’s eyebrows and tease him about getting wrinkles early from all the scowling he does. Bakugo flicks him in the nose and says he’s starting to get crows feet from always grinning like an idiot.
Oh my god. Oh my g o d this is the sweetest thing I’ve ever read. Oh my g OD I’m just imagining them doing that and Kiri in the background watching them like they’re most precious thing in the world I’m dying rip me this just made my whole life thank you so much anon *sob*
The Dynamic between Kylo & Rey and where it can go: A parallel analysis with the Shatter Me trilogy
This meta is a collaboration between my friend @sillylovesongs17 and me.
We decided to do this after I told her to read the books because I didn’t want
to scream alone about this series. We think this is a wonderful example of what
a relationship between Kylo and Rey should look like in the next movies and we
hope you have fun reading this meta.
WARNING: There will be
spoilers about Shatter Me and Star Wars.
Shatter Me is a book series written by Tahereh Mafi. Followed by Unravel
Me and Ignite Me, Shatter Me tells the story of Juliette Ferrars, a girl that
can kill with a single touch. After being locked up for 264 days, she gains a
cellmate, a boy she thought she would never see again as the Reestablishment
(the new government in power) has plans for her, Juliette must make a choice:
be a weapon or be a warrior.
In this meta we will discuss the possibilities for Kylo and Rey’s
relationship and where they might end up at the end of the sequel trilogy
comparing them to the very similar relationship of Juliette and Warner in the
Shatter Me trilogy.
We are aware that these stories are not the same but both dynamics are
similar, sharing a lot of common traits so we’ll only analyze these characters
and their dynamic only.
In the surface, Rey and Juliette share little in common. Rey starts of
as a very capable scavenger, she can hold her own against enemies because she
had a lot of time to learn how to defend herself in Jakku. In contrast,
Juliette starts as a fragile girl, she’s locked in a cell for quite some time
because of her lethal abilities and is on the verge of losing her mind.
But they do share similarities. Both girls were born with powerful gifts:
Rey is force sensitive and Juliette has a lethal touch. She was abandoned by
her parents because of her abilities and if the leaks about Ep. VIII are
correct Rey’s parents did the same to her making both wish for belonging.
Rey and Juliette are destined for great things and one more thing they
share is their uncommon relationship with the antagonist.
Kylo Ren and Warner share very similar traits, both in personality and
their actions. Aaron Warner is the leader of Sector 45, viewed as a cruel
sociopath by his soldiers and enemies he hides behind this mask not allowing
anyone to see the real him until he meets Juliette.
With Kylo we have the same pattern, his descent into darkness is only
stopped when he meets Rey. He senses that she’s special and their connection
only grows after their first interaction.
Both Kylo and Warner are trying to please their leaders who abused them mentally
and, in Warner’s case, also physically. In Star Wars, the Leader is Snoke,
someone that according to the book “Aftermath: Empire’s End” has been watching
and manipulating Kylo since before he was even born.
In Shatter Me, the Leader is Anderson, Warner’s father who treats him
like shit. He taught Warner to be merciless and cruel hoping that would destroy
the gentle nature of his son.
Warner and Kylo are both murderers, they don’t deny it but find no
pleasure in harming someone. They are passionate and intense characters with a
great sense of style and beautiful hair (sorry).
point is, Shatter Me is a trilogy, divided exactly like the Star Wars movies.
So, we will show how their dynamics are similar and with luck Mafi’s books will
illuminate us, the reylos.
Shatter Me and The Force Awakens:
The book starts with Juliette in prison after years of passing through countless
reformatories and mental institutions, her last home is now a solitary cell
where she’s been locked for 264 days without no one to talk to but herself.
The only thing that keeps her from losing her mind entirely is the bird
she dreams about it:
“Instead, I ignore the desperation sticking my fingers
together and watch for the bird I’ve only seen in my dreams.”
“I’ve dreamt about the same bird flying
through the same sky for exactly 10 years. White with streaks of gold like a
crown atop its head.
It’s the only dream I have that gives me peace.” – Shatter Me. Chapter 6. Pg. 21.
changes when a boy joins her. Adam is someone from her past but he appears to
no longer remember her. They talk sometimes but never touch until she discovers
that Adam works for the Reestablishment and he was only there to evaluate her.
to the headquarters of Sector 45 and is immediately interrogated by Warner. His
looks and youth weren’t what she was expecting it:
“I’m immediately struck by his youth. He
can’t be much older than me.
It’s obvious he’s in charge of something,
though I have no idea what. His skin is flawless, unblemished, his jawline
sharp and strong. His eyes are
the palest shade of emerald I’ve ever
He’s beautiful.” – Shatter Me. Chapter 8. Pg. 25.
This is a great parallel with Rey and Kylo’s first meeting. When Kylo
removes his mask, Rey is expecting a disfigured almost robotic person and his
looks caught her off guard:
“She just stared at him in silence.
In itself the narrow face that looked back at
her was not remarkable. It was almost sensitive. If not for the intensity of
his gaze, Ren could have passed for someone she might have met on the dusty
streets of Niima Outpost. But there was—that gaze. That, and what lay simmering
behind it.” - TFA Novelization, Chapter
“That happens when
you’re being hunted by a creature in a mask.
Kylo Ren stops,
considers her… then reaches up, unlatches
and REMOVES HIS MASK.
Rey reacts, stunned. It takes a moment
before she regains her
own mask of defiance.” – TFA Script.
The majority of the
book is Warner trying to unlock Juliette’s power while she falls in love for
Adam who has feelings for her. She discovers that he can, somehow, touch her
and they start a relationship without Warner knowing about it. He tries to test
her powers and pushes her to her limits using not so good ways to do it but it
works with Juliette discovering her super force.
On TFA we see Kylo trying to get
inside Rey’s mind. This works like a test, and she discovers she is Force
Sensitive. Then Kylo Ren and Rey also create a
bond (a deep connection, a link…). For Warner and Juliette this came with him
touching her without being killed.
Juliette escapes with Adam leaving
Warner in all his anger and confusion. Adam is Juliette’s love interest
throughout the first book and since Rey doesn’t have a love interest in TFA there
isn’t much to compare. Finn, who is Rey’s companion in the movie is more like
Kenji Kishimoto, Julliette’s best friend.
While Kylo’s feelings for Rey aren’t
explicitly stated, Warner’s feelings towards Juliette are very clear throughout
the first book and even Adam notices that he treats her differently but all she
feels for him is hatred and disgust:
“So much passion.” He laughs again. He
looks so calm, so genuinely amused. He stares at me with eyes softer than I
ever expected them to be.
I turn away.” - Shatter
Me. Chapter 14.
Rey are girls that never had someone who cared for them so the thought of
losing Adam and Finn is horrible to them. Warner and Kylo both commit an act of
violence against them making their hatred only to solidify. The word “Monster”
is used by them to describe Kylo and Warner:
monster.” My voice is too even, my body filled with a sudden rage. “Why don’t
you just kill me?” - Shatter Me, Chapter 9.
“Ren held his lightsaber, poised to strike. “I
could kill you right now. But there is another way.” Breathing hard, Rey
looked up in disgust at the man looming above her. “You’re a
monster.” – TFA Novelization.
Even with their feelings made clear both men still want these powerful
women by their side:
“You and I, Juliette—together? We could be
I will not look at him though I feel his
gaze touching every inch of my body. “No, thank you.”
We’re in the elevator. The world is
whooshing past us and the walls of glass make us a spectacle to every person on
every floor. There are no secrets in this building.
He touches my elbow and I pull away. “You
might reconsider,” he says softly. - Shatter
Me. Chapter 13.
“No. You need a teacher.” He was beseeching and insistent all
at once. “I can show you the ways of the Force.” – TFA Novelization.
At the end, they both fight. Who
wins? Yes, the girls. Rey uses the Force and kicks Kylo’s ass. Juliette uses
the attraction that Warner feels for her and shoots him. Then both women
runaway with their friends and find their resistance. The men are hurt, but
Me and The Last Jedi:
Finding Common Ground
Since The Last Jedi isn’t out yet we
will analyze the events of Unravel Me and compare to what may happen in TLJ
based in what we know so far.
After scaping from Warner, Juliette and
Adam are brought to the resistance by Kenji, their friend. There she meets
Castle, a mentor for her, that wants her to train and learn more about her
abilities but it’s hard for her. She can’t concentrate in her training and
everything seems out of place. As her relationship with Adam starts to crumble,
her dreams come back and she doesn’t understand:
“The dreams are back.
They’d left me for a while, shortly after I’d been
freshly imprisoned on base with Warner. I thought I’d lost the bird, the white
bird, the bird with streaks of gold like a crown atop its head.
(…) It was my one piece of hope in the bitter darkness
of the asylum, just until I met its twin tattooed on Adam’s chest.
(..) I thought it was a signal, a message telling me I
was finally safe. That I’d flown away and finally found peace, sanctuary.
I didn’t expect to see the bird again.
I’ve had the same dream every night for the past week,
and all 7 mornings I’ve woken up shaking, shuddering into the earthy, icy air,
struggling to steady the bleating in my chest.
Struggling to understand what this means.” – Unravel Me. Chapter 4. Pg. 28.
The belonging she thought she had
found with Adam and Castle’s resistance isn’t real, she still feels incomplete
like something is missing.
The same can be said that this might
happen with Rey. After her forceback, Maz tells her that the belonging she
seeks it’s not behind, in the past, but ahead in her future. Rey thinks it’s
about Luke and becoming a Jedi but she might find out that the belonging she
wants rests with another person.
Rian Johnson compared TLJ to Letter
Never Sent regarding how the story shifts in the middle surprising the
audience. We know that Rey and Kylo don’t have the basic hero/villain dynamic
and this could be one of the surprising elements. Showcasing their bond and the
connection they feel to each other but for this to happen they need to spend
In Unravel Me, Juliette’s feelings
about Warner starts to change when she sees him commit an act of kindness:
“And I wish I’d never
Because something inside
of my heart is ripping apart and it feels like fear, it tastes like panic and
anxiety and desperation and I don’t know how to understand the image in front
of me. I don’t want to see Warner like this. I don’t want to think of him as
anything other than a monster.” – Unravel me. Chapter 20. Pg. 101.
Her doubts about him only increases
when she meets him again, this time with his father Anderson, the Leader of the
“And I see the difference in him now. I see
He’s making no effort to hide his
emotions from me.” – Unravel Me. Chapter
35. Pg. 154.
Anderson knows about his son’s feelings
towards Juliette and plans to kill her in front of him to teach him a lesson:
“The mistake”, he says, almost announcing it now,
“that he always makes, time and time again – allowing his emotions to get in
the way of his duty – it’s pathetic”, he says, spitting in Warner’s direction.
“Which is why as much as I’d like to let you live, my dear, I’m afraid you’re
too much of a distraction in his life. I cannot allow him to protect a person
who has attempted to kill him” – Unravel
Me. Chapter 35. Pg. 157.
Just as we suspected that this was
what Snoke wanted to do with Rey, to kill her in front of Kylo because he felt
compassion for her:
“Kylo Ren. It appears that a reminder is in order. So, I will show
you the dark side. Bring the girl to me.” – TFA Novelization.
Juliette wins over Anderson and Warner is
taken as hostage by their resistance. Once there, Castle states that Juliette
must interrogate Warner because he’ll only talk to her.
They spent time together and the connection
she feels with Warner is stronger than everything she has ever felt:
“Because there’s something about him – there’s always
been something about him that’s intrigued me and I don’t understand it. I wish
I could ignore it but I can’t.” –
Unravel Me. Chapter 50. Pg. 203.
“But I know that I don’t hate you anymore. I’ve
tried,” I say, “I’ve tried so hard. Because you’ve done so many terrible,
terrible things. To innocent people. To me. But I know too much about you now.
I’ve seen too much. You’re too human.” –
Unravel Me. Chapter 50. Pg. 207.
start a strange relationship, Warner thinks he knows her, knows what she feels
and she is confused about Warner, not wanting to believe that he can be more
than a monster. She likes to spend time with him and she hates herself for
She’s the only person to
who Warner is kind. He sees her as his equal and explains why he wanted her by
“He looks at me. Really, really looks at me.
“You’re going to go on to do incredible things,” he
says. I’ve always known that. I think I just wanted to be a part of it.” – Unravel Me. Chapter 52. Pg. 218.
When Warner discovers that
he has abilities, Castle offers him a place there, in their resistance but
Warner refuses. That’s not who he is, he can’t change for a matter of days and
forget everything he’s done. He knows nothing is that easy because he can sense
other people’s feelings, he can feel the hate they have for him and that’s why
he can’t stay:
“Feel what?” I whisper.
“What people think of me.”
“Their feelings – their energy – it’s – I don’t know
what it is,” he says, frustrated, stumbling backward, shaking his head. “I’ve
always been able to tell. I know how everyone hates me. I know how little my
father cares for me. I know the agony of my mother’s heart. I know that you’re
not like everyone else.” His voice catches. “I know you’re telling the truth
when you say you don’t hate me. That you want to and you can’t. Because there’s
no ill will in your heart, not toward me, and if there was I would know.” – Unravel Me. Chapter 54. Pg. 227.
Their feelings for one
another are so strong that they almost have sex. Warner wants Juliette to go
with him, they fight and he escapes alone.
Now back to TLJ, we know
that Kylo and Rey will spend some time together on Ahch-To. According to some
leaks, Kylo will go after Rey maybe finding her by
their “mysterious connection”. He will be stuck on the island with Rey and
Luke. Their relationship will evolve (without the “almost have sex”
thing, of course), and they will get out of Ahch-To, so who knows?
We only know for certain that Kylo and Rey
need to spend time together, their understanding of one another in TLJ is
crucial to their future.
Another thing that we will have to
wait and see is the answer about Rey’s family. Mafi’s trilogy could give us a
way. Juliette was abandoned by her family and we don’t meet them. She is no
one, her parents aren’t important to the story only Juliette and the discovery
of her abilities are. It’s a good contrast to Warner’s background,
he is like royalty, son of the Reestablishment’s Supreme Leader.
A broken young man that meets a strange powerful girl with who he shares
a connection. Sounds like something we know?
At the end of book two, everything goes to shit. Their resistance seems
to be over and Juliette and Warner seems to be the only survivors making their
mission to destroy Anderson.
Based on leaks, it seems that Luke and Rey get off the island and go
their separate ways. Luke goes after Snoke while Rey goes after Kylo. If their
connection is truly explained and deepened in this movie maybe Rey asks his
help to defeat Snoke (we can only hope).
Me and Episode IX: A forged Alliance?
This segment is basically our hopes
and dreams for Rey and Kylo’s relationship since we have no clue to what will
happen in Episode IX.
Ignite me sums up everything that me
and Lu want for reylo. Obviously, we don’t know anything about the last movie
but we want to show you what happens in the last book of the Shatter Me
trilogy. Oh, and dream a little.
is now a strong woman who wants to make things better for the people. She
decides to kill Anderson and stop the Reestablishment. Warner doesn’t change so
much, he still cold, quiet, with a beautiful hair and only cares about
Juliette, the love of his life.
Juliette and Warner spend the whole
book together. He’s now the only one she can trust and their bond only grows as
the trust is built between them. Warner believes in her and see her as an equal something that Juliette never had before:
“I like the way I feel about myself when I’m with him,” I say quietly.
“Warner thinks I’m strong and smart and capable and he actually values my
opinion. He makes me feel like his equal – like I can accomplish just as much
as he can, and more. And if I do something incredible, he’s not even surprised.
He expects it. He doesn’t treat me like I’m some fragile little girl who needs
to be protected all the time.” – Ignite
Me. Chapter 25. Pg. 105.
In return, Juliette sees the real
Warner, someone he tried to hide for so long that he almost lost sight of
“You allow the world to think you’re
a heartless murderer,” I tell him. “And you’re not.” – Ignite Me. Chapter 4.
He tells everything to Juliette about
his sick mother, why he freed her in the beginning, about the men he killed and
everything he did for her. The girl now understands that he is a soldier and
not a monster. Juliette finally understands him completely and she accepts who
he is, the good and the bad parts of him:
“I’m not trying to fix you; I don’t think you need to be fixed. I’m not
trying to turn you into someone else. I only want you to be who you really are.
Because I think I know the real you. I think I’ve seen him.” – Ignite Me. Chapter 29. Pg. 120.
If Kylo and Rey spent so much time
together as did Warner and Juliette this would be the kind of development that
we could see happening between them. They aren’t black and white characters, both
Rey and Kylo have darkness in them and the acceptance of each other’s darkness
(and light) is crucial to bring balance to them and The Force.
Juliette finally understands what her
dreams meant and (shocker) this is the belonging she looked for:
“Warner. A white bird with streaks of gold like a crown atop its head. A fair-skinned boy with gold hair, the leader of Sector 45. It was always him. All along.” –
Ignite Me. Chapter 31. Pg. 124.
Juliette only acknowledges that her
feelings for him are indeed romantic in the last chapters of the book. That is
something that we would like if it happened to Rey and Kylo at the end of the
“What – ‘’
Warner is blinking fast. His voice is fragile, uneven. “What are you saying?”
“I love you,”
I whisper. “I love you exactly as you are.” – Ignite Me. Chapter 55. Pg. 200.
Also in this book, Warner loses his
mother and Juliette is the only one there to comfort him. The only thing we
know about Episode IX is that Leia is not there but this will certainly affect
ever seen him look like a child before. Never, not once, not in all the time
I’ve known him. But right now, he looks just like a little boy. Scared.
Vulnerable. All alone.
“His eyes are
red-rimmed and a startling, striking shade of green, shining with barely
restrained emotion. His face is the picture of so much pain.
I almost can’t
breathe.” – Ignite Me. Chapter 50. Pg.
Now our favorite part is obviously
Juliette and Warner working together. They make an alliance and built their own
resistance gathering the survivors of the last battle along with Juliette’s
friends to fight against the Reestablishment.
I mean, don’t we all want to see Kylo
and Rey kicking Snoke’s ass (or Hux, sorry I’m not sorry at all), using the
force bond and being amazing together?
This was basically it. We wanted to
show how the writer wrote this very similar dynamic respecting the characters
and their development making them a couple you want to root for. We expect
reylo to be subtler than a YA book since their audience is PG but if TLJ
follows just a bit of this same path we don’t need to be worried about Episode
IX at all.
