that last episode made me so incredibly hyped that i zoned out in three of my four classes yesterday just thinking about his character. boy am i glad i called dibs on that boy let me tell you. i should mention that everything that im about to say is under the assumption (once again) that hansung really is sixteen.
the main priority of this post isn’t just talking about his personality. i wanted to talk about hansung’s relationship with dansae, as it supports my previous post (which you can read here). to paraphrase, i basically stated that hansung, while loving them, feels his family is a burden to him for various reasons. that much was explicitly stated in episode 12.
One of Jason's clash quotes in injustice 2 is "Been dead. Done that." Why is he like this
I LOVE THAT ONE
All of his dialogues are so great though omg. I also love “you only live twice” and “I ain’t afraid of no ghost. Quoting the Ghostbusters theme while taking on the Joker – I’m not even remotely surprised.
An otome game like Gakuen K but Fushimi is the main character! The routes would include Munakata, Misaki, Alphabet Guys, Mikoto, Totsuka, Kusanagi.. basically everyone! I would play the shit outta that! Would you? xD
Oh I would totally play that (in fact I think it’s even been brought up on the blog before XD). The funny part would be if you play as Fushimi and all the dialogue choices are in character, like you get to the part where like you run into one of the love interests and they skipped lunch and ask to share yours. Response options are: A. No; B. Fuck no; C. Go away; and D. I didn’t eat lunch either, who the fuck has time for lunch. Or there’s a romantic moment with Fushimi and *insert love interest here* standing together on a rooftop watching the sunset, love interest moves in for a kiss, options are: A. Push him away; B. Click your tongue so he backs off; C. It’s cold out here I’m going inside; and D. Throw a knife. Fushimi would be the most inconsiderate otome game protagonist ever, he actively resists all romance options.
Hey! I just wanted to say I recently read "Love In a Hopeless Place" and absolutely loved it! I especially loved how you wrote Tsukishima, all of his dialogue was phenomenal. I hope you write KuroTsuki again someday! ^o^/
This is so nice! Thank you for stopping by 💖 That pairing is one of my favorites but so hard to write. But there will more than likely be more KuroTsuki in the future 💖💞
on the topic of how i am more like solas than i thought: one of the most fascinating things about this character is his contradictory nature.
at first he comes across as quiet, calm, and rational - which isn’t exactly untrue, but as you get to know him better, you also find out that he’s easy to piss off and can get incredibly forceful* when defending his opinions. he is genuinely kind (i will fight you on this), but also a master of verbal sparring. have him in your party long enough and sooner or later you’ll hear something positively vicious. it’s beautiful
*i don’t know how they pulled this off so well. he rarely raises his voice, but there’s so much power behind his words. passion, ancient knowledge, the weight of a very long life, his own regrets.
then there’s the fact that he’s arrogant and prejudiced, yet his entire thing - the topic he’s most passionate about, the traits he values most in others, the theme of his actions in the “good old days” - is freedom, open-mindedness, independence. the thing is, he does display open-mindedness in several banters with other party members … it just takes a while to get there. examples:
Solas: I wish to apologize for what I said to you, Blackwall. Blackwall: You were right, though. I deserved it. Solas: My people had a saying long ago - “The healer has the bloodiest hands.” You cannot treat a wound without knowing how deep it goes. You cannot heal pain by hiding it. You must accept. Accept the blood to make things better. You have taken the first step. That is
the hardest part.
Solas: I do not understand you, Sera. You do not have an end goal for your organization.
Sera: Nobles get rattled, and people get payback. I play in the middle.
Solas: Why not go all the way? You see injustice. And
you have organized a group to fight it. Don’t you want to replace it
with something better?
Sera: What, just lop off the top? What does that do, except make a new top to frig it all up?
Solas: I … forgive me. You are right. You are fine as you are.
Solas: How does passively accepting your fate constitute a fight?
Varric: In that story of yours–the fisherman watching the stars, dying alone–you thought he gave up, right?
Varric: But we went on living. he lost everyone, but he still got up every morning. He made a life, even if it was alone.
Varric: That’s the world. Everything you build, it tears down. Everything you’ve got, it takes–and it’s gone forever.
Varric: The only choices you get are to lie down and
die or keep going. He kept going. That’s as close to beating the world
as anyone gets.
Solas: Well said. Perhaps I was mistaken.
… and pretty much all of his dialogue with cassandra. i love solas and cassandra together so, so much. *___*
what i’ve been wondering is, how do these things come together? how does one end up so passionate about freedom, and so in love with open-mindedness, while at the same time maintaining a level of arrogance that seems to directly contradict this? (that was the point in my original train of thought where i went, “oh. it me. whoops.”)
i really can’t explain it, but here’s another quote that i suspect may contain a hint:
Solas: It is a delicate balance for those who fight.
Solas: If they lack sufficient passion, they never become truly skilled, and die or leave the life.
Blackwall: But too much passion, and they end up dead - or monsters better off dead.
Solas: Yes. It is a rare soldier who can fight without letting it define him.
