Notes: parentstuck au created by @polyglotplatypus, I started this fic in the early stages of the au but since then the au evolved into teenagers blinding eachother with shiny bulges so I kinda feel like I’m late with this harmless fic
Summary: fic containes davekat, anshu being a savage, a bit of janshu rivalry and dave being a dork
Screams, shouts and giggles could be heard from outside of the
Strider-Vantas household and loud noises may not be a rare occurrence around
here, Karkat still couldn’t wrap his thinkpan around on what the other two
members of this family could be doing.
He stopped reading a novel that was surprisingly not a romantic one
thanks to Dave’s insistence and went outside of his Cantown home to see what
was all the ruckus about. The sight that greeted the full grown troll was
perhaps unusual at the least. His human husband and half troll-half human
daughter was playing with vigour. Nothing wrong with that, until you look
closer at this picture.
The cute child, Anshu, had a white tablecloth tied around her neck into a
makeshift cape and a paper hat was placed upon her head, resting right between
her small, nubby horns. Still, nothing wrong with that, as a kid she can get
away with that and she looks really adorable.
okay but whenever someone says something about how matt murdock is "so catholic" im like he’s not though?? all he does is go to confession when he’s feeling guilty and sometimes talk to a priest?? I don’t even think this boy goes to mass???? matty is like a little baby turtle catholic who’s just broken out of his shell and is starting to figure out its way to the ocean (aka the church in this analogy) I don’t think I’d say he’s anywhere near “so catholic” and don’t get me wrong I really, really appreciate that the show addresses his faith, I just think it’s really funny but also kind of sad because people have become so accustomed to religion being either 1) completely ignored and never mentioned at all, 2) made into some tasteless joke, or 3) turned into the bad guy and I really wish we had more good, religious characters and more tv shows that addressed it and I’m not just talking about catholicism or even other types of christianity but others too I want to see jewish characters and muslim characters and hindu characters and buddhist characters because I think religious representation is just as important as racial and cultural representation especially since many religions are often closely tied to a culture
A while back a read a meta by, @colyssa I think, and she mentioned how Harry Potter was a series of 7 books where everything between book 1 and book 7 was “filler”. Combined with having just read that someone thought to remember how it had been mentioned by OUaT people (I have no source and no receipt. It’s not that important to my writing, only to it being a catalyst for me to write this) they needed 7 seasons to tell the story they wanted. I thought that “Why not?!” OUaT is a fairytale told the way J.K. Rowling told HP. Everything is clues that will suddenly makes sense in the end.
A/N: None of this is fact. It is my speculation, my interpretation. Everything from 5+ is guessing. This is speculation writing on drugs basically.
I am no expert on Harry Potter, this is written from memory and quick googling, if anything is incorrect I apologize and if you tell me, I will fix mistakes.
This also ended up more jumbled than I’d hoped, I hope it makes sense. It was originally a part of another meta/speculation I’m working on, but it became too big, so I split them, and this is by itself.
A soulmate is not a true love. A soulmate is someone who comes into your life and serves an importance purpose for your self development, and then you part ways. - Important to remember during this.
I won’t much parallel characters or ships directly, besides the protagonists. The core of the stories aren’t romance, the core of the stories are the battle of light vs dark.
Harry Potter had multiple layers and romance and ships, but that wasn’t the base of the story. OUaT has multiple layers and romance and ships as well, but the base of the story isn’t it.
HP was about the boy who lived, who lived on to be the boy who defeated Voldemort.
OUaT is about Emma who escaped the Darkness, who will live on to defeat the Darkness.
Harry was the key to defeat Voldemort. The key to defeat OUaT Darkness is (also a “one”. A yin yang force aka Regina and) Emma.
As I am SQ af, I read the show as such, and will put a SQ spin on it.
We are given the premise of the story.
We meet the orphan protagonist at an important birthday of their life. A birthday that will take the orphan back to their roots. They’ve lived their lives, so far, in a world they don’t belong in, alone, because their parents did what they could to give them their best chance, at choice that resulted in them growing up without their parents, without knowing where they come from, without knowing why.
On this specific birthday a person knocks on their door and barges into their life and tells them their origin. Thus taking them back to their world, the world where they have a destiny to be the savior, to defeat the evil.
We learn about many people, and the other world, and how they fit into the story told so far.
We are told about the evil that was the reason for the orphan’s upbringing.
We realize the orphan will be the person to defeat the evil at some point (in the end)
We are shown the importance of certain magical objects: Mirrors, Jefferson’s hat. Regina’s ring. Wands. Apples. The book.
(Mirror of Erised. The Sorcere’s Stone. Wands. The snitch. etc.)
Other objects and creatures we are introduced to without it having a real relevance yet.
(Emma’s yellow bug. Emma’s baby blanket. Rumbelle’s chipped cup. Regina’s tree necklace. Regina’s apple tree. Emma’s circle necklace. Henry’s scarf)
(Dragons, centaurs, invisibility cloak, Ron’s rat Scabbers)
Harry in his Gryffindor robes, his glasses, his scar
Emma in her red leather jacket, her circle necklace, her tattoo
This is our protagonist. This is the person who shall be part of the last battle against evil.
Voldemort is the evil Harry will have to fight
The Darkness is the evil Emma (and Regina) will have to fight.
In the end of 1, Voldemort/Darkness fails to get rid of Harry/Emma. Voldemort/Darkness works through another person Quirrel/Regina
Our orphan is now well aware of their origin and the world they came from, and are now once again a part of.
The orphan learns about the evils of the past. How Voldemort uses evils of the past (the chamber of secret’s and the basilisk) to mess with the present. How Darkness uses the evils of the past (Cora) to mess with the present.
Regina’s redemption begins for real.
More important magical objects are introduced
(Gryffindor’s sword. The basilisk and it’s tooth. Fawkes the Phoenix. The Whomping Willow. The flying car.)
(The diamond trigger. The dagger. Magic beans. The Jolly Roger)
New people are introduced. H00k, H00d, Neal.
New people are introduced. Gilderoy Lockhart. Dobby.
The protagonists interacts with a soulmate. Someone who will be there for a while, be important to them now, have meaning to the furture. Harry meets Sirius. Emma interacts more with H00k. Regina interacts with H00d.
A little time travel, because why not (doesn’t much change anything as much as let’s them see things in a new perspective).
Our protagonists gets to see their own power be greater than they thought possible. Harry produces a patronus. Emma and Regina move the moon.
Things begin getting darker. Evil is shown in a new more blatant way. A death has great impact to our protagonists.
Voldemort’s sign is shown in the sky. Darkness creeps into Emma as it in the same time leaves Regina more and more.
In the end evil inhabits a new form. Voldemort arises again. The Darkness takes hold of Regina, but Emma sacrifices herself and takes it instead.
Cedric Diggory dies. Cruella De Vil dies.
From now on, everything written is speculation. I obviously don’t know what will happen, I’ll be taking clues from HP to guess what could happen.
Part five is game changer. People start getting ready for the final battle. The protagonist learns of a prophecy. A soulmate dies. It gets dark.
In HP the Order of the Phoenix is re assembled, they’re getting ready for the final battle. Harry learns of the prophecy.
The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches … born to those who have thrice defied him, born as the seventh month dies … and the Dark Lord will mark him as equal, but he will have power the Dark Lord knows not … and either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives … the one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord will be born as the seventh month dies
Sirius dies in the end of 5.
People of Storybrooke will see darkness they’ve never seen before. They’ll start getting ready for battle. Protagonist Emma will learn of a prophecy while in Camelot that she feels needs for no one else to know (hence the memory curse).
My guess is Emma finds out how she and Regina are connected. How they are “of one”. She’ll learn in the end, the Darkness can only be defeated if she dies as well. Emma carries part of the Darkness in her since she took on the curse.
I can’t decide if only one of them will have to die or they both will. Or if only one, which of them it has to be. But because Emma has part the Darkness in her right now, I’ll go with her.
Initially I thought the prophecy would be that only Emma and Regina together can defeat the Darkness, and the Darkness can only prevail if it defeats both Emma and Regina. Which also, if we continue HP style, Darkness couldn’t be defeated as long as Emma and Regina lived.
Anyway, Emma will carry the burden of that knowledge alone for now as Regina isn’t ready to learn yet.
I’m guessing the soulmate to die will be H00k. I base this on his death in Operation Mongoose and on him giving Emma his “protective” ring. But I’m also guessing this might not be of importance, or happen, until season 6 and that H00k will stay around until then. *
Regina’s soulmate, H00d, will leave her for Zelena. OR Regina will leave H00d for her family, Henry and Emma, and Hood will then go to Zelena. (This could also be delayed ‘til season 6)
They’re getting ready for the final battle and clues on how to defeat evil is being collected. Protagonist goes on an important quest to learn answers. The importance of a ring is explained. Someone prominent dies.
(Dumbledore and Harry going after the locket) (Emma and Regina goes on a quest for answers?)
The ring Dumbledore wore in book 6 ended up being the death of him. The ring had been owned by multiple people, it’s origin was it was part of the Peverell brothers’ way to hide from death.
Voldemort used the ring as a Horcrux. When Dumbledore took the ring to destroy, it ended up destroying him as well (it would have either way). It’s origin, as the resurection stone, was then used by Harry when he went to defeat Voldemort.
H00k’s ring’s origin we don’t know yet. It’s been implied it has been part of a way to cheat death.
The second last person to possess the ring/stone died. That was Dumbledore and H00k. The last person to possess it was Harry/Emma
*H00k’s ring will probably be a part of three magical objects Emma and Regina will need, perhaps indirectly, in the final battle against the Darkness.
It could also be important only now as an ingredient to be used at some point, as I’ve speculated before.
Harry Potter had the Peverell brothers magical objects: Invisibility cloak, Elderwand, Resurection stone.
Dumbledore had posession of all three at some point in life. It could be speculated H00k will have possessed all three objects Emma needs for her plan/to defeat Darkness. Excalibur, the ring, the?
Traveling for clues and the final battle between dark and light begins
In the end Harry learns Voldemort can’t die as long as he lives. In the end we know Voldemort only killed the part of himself that lived inside Harry. Harry returned to kill him.
So in the end, someone has to die. I really can’t decide if it should be Regina, Emma, or both. We’ll continue to go with Emma.
Regina learns they can only defeat the Darkness if Emma dies as well. And as Emma sacrifices herself to end the Darkness, Regina takes a leap of faith and sacrifices herself for Emma. And because “Love, True Love, is magic and not just any magic, but the most powerful magic of all” they’ll be reunited.
okay the spoilers are killing everyone but like. this is it.
this is the final proof that levi doesnt hate erwin. that he cares for him
because even after all the hints of their relantion (gay friendship no homo duh) there are still people who think he does,
but after this???? after levi refusing to kill the beast titan (something so reckless for him) so he can make someone a shifter. AND CLEARLY THINKING OF ERWIN CUZ HE WONT LET HIM DIE??? im sorry but whoever keeps thinking that they dont get along is clearly reading a different manga or just plain blind
