i've been waiting so long for it

also as a heads up: once the new noxus lores come out then i’ll most likely do a URL change and a soft blog reset. maybe even move blogs entirely ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

unless the new Vladimir lore is Badimir lore, i have full intention of shifting my blog to adhere to the new canon 

heads up: law & order & authori[tea] 23 will be posted

either tonight or tomorrow morning, lovelies. Just putting some extra notice out there in advance this time since it’s been a while & all.

I regret the longer-than-usual wait on this one, as we’re finally starting to draw some pesky plot threads into place, but. Such is life! I just hope it’s not been so long a wait as to make it confusing. (Not doubting your memories, just my own ability to pace / foreshadow.) At any rate, gird your loins for:

  • Anna and Ben narrating!
  • Hewlett making new friends!
  • And kissing in dark corners… 😘 💋 ❤️
  • And getting pushed up against the wall… 😳 😳 😳
  • hell & disaster
  • disagreement & deceit
  • Everyone having a great time.

Newt crouches on the floor. Credence looks to him, the tiniest trace of hope dawning in his expression: Might there be a way back?

LISTEN UP AND LET ME TELL YOU WHY I’M EMOTIONAL ABOUT THIS.

FOR ONE, WHEN NEWT CROUCHES ON THE FLOOR HE GETS ON THE SAME LEVEL, ON EYE LEVEL WITH CREDENCE. HE DOESN’T TALK DOWN TO HIM OR BELITTLES HIM OR GIVES HIM THE FEELING HE’S AN AUTHORITY OR IN ANY WAY IN THE POSITION OF POWER. THIS IS IMPORTANT. CREDENCE HAS SPENT HIS LIFE BEING SURROUNDED BY PEOPLE WHO LET HIM KNOW JUST HOW POWERLESS HE WAS. WHAT KIND OF FREAK HE WAS. ALSO, THIS WAY OF SLOW CROUCHING IS A THING WE OFTEN DO WHEN TRYING TO APPROACH A FRIGHTENED ANIMAL IN ORDER NOT TO SCARE IT AWAY. MANY SMALL ANIMALS ARE AFRAID OF GIANTS LIKE US. SO. NEWT IS TOTALLY USING HIS MAGIZOOLOGIST SKILLS HERE, DON’T TELL ME OTHERWISE.

TWO, NEWT HAPPENS TO BE THE FIRST CHARACTER IN THE ENTIRE MOVIE (AND PROBABLY CREDENCE’S LIFE TBH) TO ACTUALLY ASK CREDENCE IF IT’S OKAY TO COME NEAR HIM. HE ACTUALLY GIVES HIM A CHOICE. NO ONE ELSE HAS DONE THIS. GRINDELGRAVES CONTROLLED HIM THROUGHOUT THE MOVIE AND NEVER ONCE ASKED FOR CREDENCE’S CONSENT FOR LITERALLY ANYTHING. THE FALSE AFFECTIONATE TOUCHES CREDENCE RECEIVED WERE ALWAYS TIED TO CONDITIONS. NEVER ONCE HAS CREDENCE BEEN ASKED SO TRUELY AND SINCERELY, “IS THIS OKAY FOR YOU? CAN I DO THIS?”

JUST SCRAPE ME OFF THE FLOOR TBH
