1. Have a Positive Mental Attitude- Prime yourself
at being always comfortable and confident that u can do a lot better at
studying. Remember that you are studying things that will prove to be valuable
in real life.
2. Prepare your Work Space- Look for a place in your
home or bedroom where u think u can study and maintain concentration in your work.
Have materials stocked up and in place before your study. This way, u can
finish your work without any interruptions.
3. Avoid Cramming- study an hour a day even when
there’s no homework. Scan your notebooks and do a little advanced reading of your
textbooks. You can also research through the internet to learn more about the
topics u are covering in school. I suggest google scholar, it’s like
google but for students, it has the citations, and filters results so that only
helpful outcomes appear.
4. Do projects with more enthusiasm and
creativity- Don’t be afraid to think of new ideas or ways to present your
homework or projects. Teachers always give additional points to students who
show great effort in their works. SO, don’t be afraid to do something original,
do something that hasn’t been done before.
5. Raise Your Hand- Be active and establish a
friendly attitude towards your teachers. Offer to help them out in checking
some work, filing papers or just carrying their things. Little good things add
up in the end for that extra effort grade, and they’ll always remember you as a
very helpful student.
6. Enjoy Reading the Latest News- Find
connections or associations with your life as a student, as a child, as a
friend, or as a citizen. Certain reports would always ask for u to react so
better be ahead with current events which you may be affected with.
7. Listen to Your Teacher, take a few notes- In
my experience, the more i copy and take down notes, the more i get lost in the
lecture. It is best to listen first and understand before u jot down any
important keywords. Yes, use keywords, simple doodles and arrows to make
associations. These will help u remember all concepts mentally.
8. Keep Notes on Index Cards- I use personally
use the smaller oxford ones, they are more portable honestly pretty aesthetic..
9. Watch TV Wisely- Yep you heard it, TV, when
watching TV I sometimes pick up points which may seem relevant in my life. They
sometimes even have something to do with what’s happening in class at the
moment so, always initiate conversation about the latest shows and issues you
have watched. Don’t be afraid to argue and defend your opinions.
one day a CS major with some photoshop skills decided he wanted to make a silly user-submitted command comic about some asshole kid walking around his house, which would explode into some Plot Shit, generally following the model of a previous work, Problem Sleuth (which ran for a year and concluded itself cleanly, i.e., had an actual Beginning, Middle, and End)
anyway, then The Internet Teens picked it up and suddenly this guy’s audience was no longer CS nerds looking for shitty CS jokes and ridiculous plot shit, but teens looking for Feels and Gays
anyway the two things got combined and seven years and 7,958 pages later with probably approaching close to an hour of animation and ~4-5 hours of flash games spread throughout, we are left with an animation reflecting on just how many times the same characters have fucking died.
it was supposed to consist of seven acts.
the following is the current act structure:
Act 5 Act 1
Act 5 Act 2
EOA5 (once upon a time, people thought this 13-minute animation was the climax)
Act 6 Act 1
Act 6 Intermission 1
Act 6 Act 2
Act 6 Intermission 2
Act 6 Act 3
Act 6 Intermission 3
Act 6 Act 4
Act 6 Intermission 4
Act 6 Act 5 Act 1
Act 6 Act 5 Act 2
Act 6 Act 5 Act 1: Again
Act 6 Intermission 5
Act 6 Intermission 5 Intermission 1
Act 6 Intermission 5 Intermission 2
Act 6 Intermission 5 INTERFISHIN
Act 6 Intermission 5 Intermission 3
Act 6 Intermission 5 Intermission 4
Act 6 Intermission 5 Intermission 5
Act 6 Intermission 5 Intermission 6
Act 6 Act 6 Act 1: Homosuck
Act 6 Act 6 Intermission 1
Act 6 Act 6 Act 2
Act 6 Act 6 Intermission 2
Act 6 Act 6 Act 3: GAME OVER
Act 6 Act 6 Intermission 3 (psyche the ride never ends)
Act 6 Act 6 Act 4
Act 6 Act 6 Intermission 4
Act 6 Act 6 Act 5
Act 6 Act 6 Intermission 5
essentially, all you need to know about homestuck is this: if someone tells you it’s a cohesive unit they’re lying, and if someone tells you it’s ending, they’re also lying
I thought i should make this guide with suggestions for people who:
1. Don’t always have internet.
2. Go somewhere where there’s no internet.
3. The internet is slow/barely working in their area. 4. People who want to be prepared. 5. Others that i can’t think of now.
Everything I’m going to say works offline so in case the light went out for a couple of hours and you don’t know what to do to practice your target language, here are some suggestions.
You should have a notebook with grammar in it and it doesn’t really matter if you just copy-paste an entire grammar book. (However it would be pretty good if you actually pay attention to what you write otherwise you’ll have to work twice. 1st you copy-paste then you have to figure out what’s important and what isn’t and that takes pretty long time.)
Print a book. try to find a place where the printing is cheap. Usually these are small bookshops or so. Take a walk around the town and check out many places or ask friends of yours, maybe one of them knows a place.
Buy a book
Print some lists with verbs and their forms.
I’d suggest you guys to always have a list with irregular verbs. If you have time you can actually make a big poster with their forms and practice them daily (or just look at the poster, after a while you remember what you wrote) or keep it for days with no internet so you can study them.
Alternative: you can download a PDF but if you have no light for hours, your phone/laptop will die pretty soon and you might need them for more important stuff.
Always have books, magazines, comics in your target language.
Now, it doesn’t matter if they are PDF or physical. My tablet has comics in Danish in case i have no light and i’m bored. It’s pretty handy to have something to read.
Idioms all the way~
You might be a beginner so you didn’t really want to learn idioms usually because you think they are “too advanced”, however, it’s no harm to have 2 packs of flashcards at you in case you want to play a game. I said 2 packs so i should explain why. 1 is in your target language while the other is the translation. Put all the cards with their writing facing the rug/table/book/whatever and turn them 2 at the time. If the translation is the right one for the other card, take them out or leave them with their “face” up, if not, turn them again and turn 2 cards again.
pro tip: have a list with the pairs since you don’t know the meaning of the idioms.
You can buy one/download a pdf or use an offline dictionary. I’d recommend using ProDictor BitKnights Ltd. You need internet only for 5 min to download all the content and then your app is good.
Try to have at least 2-3 movies in your laptop or on a flash stick/USB. Now, if you stay 1 month at your grandparents, you might learn the lines of these movies but at least you used your listening skills.
I’m pretty sure 95% of langblrs have at least 1 song in their target language(s) but i’m still going to say this. When you’re bored, these songs will save you, also, singing improves your pronunciation.
Apps that work offline
Pocket- basically, you need internet at first (the app has to download the content and you have to log in) and after, you have to save a few stuff. The app allows you to read articles offline. It saves the page and you can acces it later.
While you are at a computer you “save” the page through the browser’s extention and they will be added to the app from your phone.
50Languages - just like every app i’m going to mention, you need internet only at the beginning. This app has games, audio, vocab. I like it for the fact that the audio is really good. As you guessed, it’s for 50 languages.
Fun Easy Learn- it has a version for words and one for phrases. The app has 7 games and you have to play them all in order to have “learned” the vocab.
Memrise - everyone knows it so i won’t say anything else than the fact that you can download a couple of their courses. (i’m not sure if for ios you can download them but i know that on os you can)
Learn- this app has audio and vocab. The game for “teaching” is more of a way of testing you after you learned the words but it’s still pretty handy.
Learn Languages - this app is built to work hand in hand with 50Languages and i just love them? So, you use 50langs for the audio and LearnLanguages tests you for what you know. If you don’t know a certain word or phrase, the app will send you notifications with what you don’t know and its translation. You set the timer (15min, 30min, 1h, 3 h).
If you have words that need to be learned and you don’t know how, Quizlet might be a good option since it has different games and also a flashcards option.
If you by any chance don’t understand something, write it down. Try to have a notebook or a paper only for questions. When you have internet again, use HiNativeor ask a native friend of yours.
Summary: You and Bucky are friends for a long time, but lately you start to develop romantic feelings for him. One day one of Tony’s parties everything changes but maybe not the way you wanted or expected.
You never felt so inadequate in your life, when you left the house for one of Tony’s parties . You felt beautiful in your black strapless dress and high heels. But as soon as you arrived atthe party, you felt your heart being shattered.
You see Bucky with a beautiful blonde in his arms , when he sees you he comesin your direction kissing your cheek and pulling you to a hug “Don’t you look beautiful?” He says staring into your eyes, you smile at him with your best fake smile“Well I tried, apparently not as hard as your date.” You say sounding bitter even if that is the last thing you wanted to be or sound like.
Hi, I wanted to ask you if you know any fanfictions about Johnlock texting/letters/internet messages, something connected with that? :)
I thought I didn’t have many of these, so I was so excited that I would be able to get this done in 10 minutes… it’s now 4 hours later and I finally got a rough list done for you and I STILL can’t find the one I wanted to add to this list! I’m so angry, because I THOUGHT it was an FFNet fic, but i can’t find it urg. Oh well. I hope you like what I have picked for you instead!
SEXTING / TEXTING:
Unquantifiable by 221b_hound(M, 2799 w, Ao3) - John remains a terrible and foul-tempered patient, but he does try to make up for it with pet names and text message silliness. In the meantime, Sally Donovan visits Baker Street for a hint about the Milverton case, and has to deal with a Sherlock Holmes who can’t find words big enough to thank her for saving John’s life at the warehouse. For afters, there’s a viewing of The Princess Bride. Part 33 of Unkissed
Happy anniversary by Salambo06(E, 3772 w., Ao3) - John inhaled deeply, feeling his cock pulse under the silk gown, and he let his eyes travel on the lean body in front of him. Sherlock was kneeling on the bed, their bed, and the picture had been taken so John could perfectly see his bare chest and pelvis. But what mattered most, what made John harden rather quickly, was the pair of panties Sherlock was wearing in the picture. Black, string over each hip and laces that outlined Sherlock’s erect cock barely hidden under the soft underwear.
A Brand of Gold by aquabelacqua(M, 12,757 w. Ao3) - John sank deeper into the pillows, let the mist and blur of the wine settle around him, let it shore up his nerves and dim the warning signals that flashed dully in the back of his mind. He let the rest of the disappointment about Lucy and his strange accommodations and about the weekend as a whole fade into obscurity. He let the vital, missing piece snap into place as surely and as cleanly as if it had always been there. He was flirting with Sherlock Holmes. **MUST READ**
The Real Meaning of Idioms by feverishsea(T, 21,691 w., Ao3) - After two weeks away, John finally texts Sherlock. He doesn’t expect Sherlock to respond. He doesn’t expect Sherlock to keep texting him. And he really doesn’t expect things to spiral out of control so rapidly.
Bread and Wine and Curry Once a Week by cwb(E, 8737 w., Ao3) - "I am not agitated. I’m just tired of it. The insinuations, the comments, that I have no… no interest in relationships, or sex.“ John and Sherlock muddle through a relationship. **FAVE!**
Entanglement by orphan_account(G, 3218 w., Ao3) - On Christmas Eve, snow covers London, John visits Harry, and Sherlock and Mrs. Hudson untangle some knots. Lovely pining Sherlock fic. Love this one!
Definitions by siennna(T, 101,528 w., Ao3) - Throughout his life, Sherlock Holmes has always taken facts and held them close like treasures, because in a world of complex emotions, unpredictability, and the unknown, logic has never failed him. Puzzles can always be solved and equations will always have an answer; he seeks and finds comfort in the steady absolution of facts and the knowledge that everything has a definition: an unchanging, consistent meaning. However, at age thirty-five he discovers the exception to all of his neat, tidy logic when he meets John Watson, the one person who evades definition and refuses to be easily categorized—and who makes Sherlock question his own previously unshakeable ideas about everything from life to love. (Apparently a WiP, but it feel complete enough, as the “last chapter” has been waiting for over 2 years)
Tease You Till You Come by phoenix089 (E, 6090 w., Ao3) - Initially, Sherlock was rather put out by John’s lack of presence on the case. But then he starts to recieve pictures, several of them, of an unexpected nature. The case is forgotten rather quickly after that.
Text Me When It’s Over by immaculately-flawed(K+, 1K+ w., FFnet) - After the fall Sherlock starts writing texts to John. Of course, he never sends them… Until he does by accident. Post Reichenbach fic but not angsty.
Texts and Tea by JillianWatson1058(K, 959 w., ffnet) - A John who is woken up at 2:30 in the morning is not a happy John. Sherlock, frankly, doesn’t care. He just wants his tea.
Iunctum by Fudgyokra(K, 221 w., FFNet) - He stood still for a long time, staring not so much at the words he’d been sent, but at the signature that marked them: A simple ‘SH,’ neatly tucked at the close of the words ‘I’ve missed you.’” A 221B ficlet; Sherlock’s return from the fall.
The Art Of Communication by StillWaters1(T, 2K+ w., FFNet) - Lestrade was used to getting odd, non sequitur texts from Sherlock. But when “John went out for milk” was followed by a terse “two hours ago,” Lestrade immediately understood three things: John was missing, Sherlock was quietly panicking, and this could all end very, very badly.
LETTERS / EPISTOLARY
Letters by Jenna Flare(T, 2K+ w., FFNet) - John leaves letters on Sherlock’s grave as a method of coping. Sherlock reads them every week. Sherlock/John, John/Mary. T for swearing. Post-Reichenbach
Dear John by starwarsfreak95(T, 601 w. FFNet) - Not all Dear John letters are bad. Sherlock tries to explain to John why he did what he did and how much John means to him.
Pen Pals by WerewolfDoctor(K, 2K w., FFNet) - Most people don’t become pen pals by one of them writing a not-suicide note. Then again, Sherlock Holmes and John Watson have never exactly been normal, have they?
In the Dark Hours by hubblegleeflower(E, 51,639 w., Ao3) - John, wounded and silent, drifts back to Baker Street for healing…and then goes home again. He visits, gets more upbeat, chattier, smiles, jokes… and still goes home again. Sherlock wants him to move back in - it just makes sense - but John shows no signs of doing so. This is the story of how John and Sherlock learn to say what needs to be said when they’re both so very, very rubbish at talking.
Correspondence by Cleo2010(T, 8031 w., Ao3) – Sherlock’s been spirited away on a case for Mycroft. Part of the deal was that he and John could communicate via letter until the case was completed. Maybe the cliche is true, absence does make the heart grow fonder. Or perhaps something is growing on the feet in the fridge. Read their letters month by month. Written after series one.
White Blank Page by SarahCat1717(M, 11,936 w., Ao3) – Post-fall, Sherlock is off eliminating Moriarty’s crime web. He finds he misses John. He can’t divulge that he still lives, but he placates his need to communicate with John and still feel a connection with him by sending him blank letters. But over time, this writing exercise lends itself to Sherlock exploring his feelings for his friend. What will happen when Sherlock returns to London and the man he has been “writing” to regularly for the past two years? NOT S3 compliant. Mary who?
Winter of Life by You_Light_The_Sky(T, 5178 w., Ao3) – It was an experiment, really. On Christmas, Sherlock wrote to Santa asking for a friend. He got a broken toy soldier instead. This is the story of how he finds him again and again.
Dear John by wendymarlowe(E, 3 Parts, 30,802 w. Ao3) – With Sherlock dead, John eventually (under duress) makes a profile on an online dating site. And falls into a long-distance relationship with an enigmatic partner who reminds him of Sherlock in all the right ways. (Hint: it turns out to be Sherlock.)
BLOGS / SCRAPBOOKS / JOURNALS
The Case of the Vanishing Blog by Hekateras (K+, 2K+ w., FFNet) - Sherlock is in it for the hunt. John is in it for the action. Even so, the events at the Pool leave a mark on both, unwilling as they are to admit it.
One-Way Mirror by StormyNight108(K+, 830 w. FFNet) - Post-Reichenbach one-shot. It’s been months since the incident, where a man lost his best friend. Slowly but surely, John’s life is starting to turn up a little. That night, his blog is updated to share good news to his followers, and one anonymous commentator is quick to share his happiness. It’s about as close to his friend as he can get right now.
Don’t Go Without Meby MirabileLectu(T, 1K+ w. FFNet) - Deep in the recesses of the cluttered space under John’s bed, far from the prying eyes of nosy landladies, there is a box.
Journal of Truths by Goddess_of_the_Night(T, 2317 w., Ao3) - When John escorts Sherlock back to Baker Street from the tarmac, he discovers a journal that Sherlock has kept secret…that he has kept secrets in. What he sees when he opens it is nothing like what he expected. He expected scrawling notes of observations, or maths equations, or drawings of plants…anything but what he actually finds: confessions.
You fit me, Sherlock Holmes by orphan_account(G, 10,077 w., Ao3) – An unfortunate series of events leads to John accepting being a part of Sherlock’s study in physical intimacy. As the days pass by, John realizes he might be in for more than he bargained for. He doesn’t entirely mind.
The Great Sex Olympics of 221B by XistentialAngst(E, 58,611 w., Ao3) – John Watson thinks Sherlock Holmes should admit that he, Watson, is more of an expert on sex than Sherlock is. But Sherlock refuses to concede the point. He comes up with an experiment plan that will resolve the issue. The results will determine who wins the prize. But sometimes even the best thought-out scientific study has unexpected consequences.
POST-ITS / LISTS
I Believe In Sherlock Holmes by Cennis(K, 2+K w., FFNet) - When John came to Baker Street one Sunday about six months after the funeral and found an elegant wooden cane, expensive-looking yet sturdy, stuffed away in the shoe cupboard, he began ‘blogging’ again. It began with post-it notes. POST-FALL.
In case of emergency by AlessNox(K, 520 w., FFNet) - Sherlock is charged with making a list of what supplies they would need in case of an emergency.
The Three-Word Tin Collection by TheBookshelfDweller(K, 1K+ w., FFNet) - What happens when Sherlock has to store the things he wants to say to John while deconstructing Moriarty’s web, but the Mind palace proves an inadequate place to store them?
206 Reasons by whitchry9(K+, 1K+, FFNet) - John won’t wake up, so Sherlock lists all the reasons why he should. Because he appears to be a bit besotted. How inconvenient.
Because Blah Blah Blah Happy by cwb(E, 4,578 w., Ao3) – John is entirely done with the milk situation and gives Sherlock a list of shit he’s pissed about. Sherlock sets out to make John happy. John is happy. Sherlock makes his own list. They are both very, very happy.
Our Enthusiasms Which Cannot Always Be Explained by withoutawish(M, 32,961 w., Ao3) – The list that is tacked haphazardly on the refrigerator of 221B reads, ‘Kidney(s), and/or a full cadaver (preferably male, late 30s, under six feet tall), bag of fresh toes, sixteen cow’s eyes (corneas retained), dual exhaust hand –held flame thrower, an unopened first edition copy of Joseph Conrad’s ‘Heart of Darkness’, and no less than ten abhorrently gruesome murders in the upcoming month.” The one neatly hanging next to it simply reads, “Sex.” One of these lists is not John Watson’s. If John Watson were to put what he really wanted in list form, to live in a land somewhere beyond ‘almosts’ now that Sherlock Holmes has indeed returned to him, he would never be able to look his flatmate in the eye ever again.
See Recipe for Details by pandoras_chaos(E, 4,981, Ao3) – John knows Sherlock’s mouth will never water over the sweet smells of baking chocolate biscuits or a lovely roast chicken, but he’s watched Sherlock nick mince pies out of Mrs. Hudson’s fridge often enough to deduce that the man does have taste, albeit confusing and obscure. So John makes a list: Things Sherlock Likes
And I have a few on my Marked For Later List which also have this theme. I HAVE NOT READ THEM, so I don’t know what they are like; I was waiting for them to finish before I do. As well, Alexx has a tonne of lists you can check out too!
The Pieces That Fall to Earth by Itsallfine(T, WIP, Ao3) - John and Sherlock have hit rock bottom, but with all their armor stripped away, they can finally speak honestly and find the truths that matter most.
Letters from Sussex by sussexbound(E, 3 Parts, 160,298 w., Ao3) – In the wake of the Mary/Moriarty affair, John and Sherlock have fallen out, and are living apart. But Sherlock isn’t content with this state of affairs–not one bit. He’s tired of dancing around the obvious.
- is so good at doing impressions that when he did one to Morgan Freeman, it was so accurate Freeman told him, “You ever do that again, I’ll kill you”
- won $356,000 by winning the California State Poker Championships in June 2004 - defeating some of the best poker players in the world in the process
- filmed four movies simultaneously in 2001: Pearl Harbor, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Changing Lanes, and The Sum of All Fears
- began an intense two-hour a day workout regime the day after he was cast as Batman
- received a lifetime ban from playing blackjack at the Las Vegas’ Hard Rock Casino due to his ‘counting cards’ skills
Which tells me:
1. He’s fucking smart. I mean, he can pick up/learn languages pretty well (one of which is Arabic,Damian are you listening and he majored in Middle Eastern Affairs in college) and he is a boss at poker/blackjack.
2. He’s a workaholic. Look, I’ve never made a film (or even a short video) in my entire life, but he did 4 in one year at the same time and I bet he’s done similar workloads throughout his career. Also, see: two-hour a day workout regime for more evidence.
3. He can do good enough impressions to freak the fuck out of God™.
= Ben Affleck is well on his way to being Ultimate Batman
All Hail the mighty Bat!
(edit: someone didn’t like my previous gif-use due to literal-Superman-bashing, and I agreed. Sorry, I didn’t see Supes little face on the wee gif-screen. Here’s some batfleck just being the best Bat he can)
ignore me creepy internet researching the fuck out of him to get my hands on this info. i needed it to defend myself from absolutely no one. fucking fight me
Attempts at drawing Danse by memory all triggerman style. Done with the pencils you see in the left picture. “By memory” I mean by being stuck on a plane for 6 hours without any internet service, so I had to do something to pass the time. Kinda looks like Gomez Addams but what the fuck ever. I tried my best to fix his face. My apologies for the shit quality, my phone sucks and JPEG doesn’t help.
Alright, since I finished my homework before midnight, I decided to treat myself by sketching Yoosung… yes. He’s holding a finger gun up. Yes. He’s the type to say “You’re under arrest… For stealing my heart.”
Today I fucked up... by getting into the wrong car
Friday I went out to a local bar with a few friends after work. We all had a few drinks, and by 12AM my friends have all left. Its just me and maybe 2-3 other people at the bar. I’m drinking pretty heavily at this point. I will admit I do have a drinking problem.
Well at this point I realize I’m too drunk to drive home, and the bartender took my keys. Which is fine, I never intended to drive anyways. So I’m sitting outside waiting for a taxi cab. I get the brilliant idea to just sleep in my SUV. My windows are heavily tinted. I also didn’t have my keys so I figured id be fine. So I hoped into my SUV and laid down in the back seat. I’m blackout drunk at this point and pass out.
Fast forward 8-10+ hours of sleeping. I wake up and my car is moving, what the hell!? I sit up and I assume i’m in the back of a cop SUV. I sit up and ask the driver why i’m being arrested. He kinda let out a small scream and asked who the hell I am.
After pulling over, and getting my ass beat I finally figure out what happened. I got into the wrong SUV last night and the guy didn’t know I was in his back seat. So I kinda laughed and explained to him. He didn’t think it was as funny but whatever. He drove me to the next exit and dropped me off. After the ride to the next exit I started to notice palm trees which is weird. I live in Kentucky. He drops me off at the next exit, and I spent the next 3-4 hours figuring out how to get home. I managed to sleep the entire 10 hour drive to Florida on the floor of his SUV without him noticing.
I’m home now, parents bought me an airplane ticket later that night.

So you think had Shinichi not confessed in London he would have lost ran forever? Why?
This is surely not a simple question, so I’m gonna try to analyse the situation. This is gonna be long.
Let’s see things from Ran’s POV. Imagine if you were Ran. Now, think about all the times Shincihi just left you.
Let’s start from Tropical Land: finally you get to have a sort of a date with the guy you have a crush on and everything’s fine except someone gets murdered. You are upset, and you’re crying and what does he do? ‘Go on I’ll catch up with you later!’ and he disappears. He leaves you there, crying. But he’s a detective, he knows what he’s doing. And you trust him (#1). But you wait, and wait, and time passes and you don’t get a call nor anything. And you have so many questions.
Then the Diplomat Murder Case happens and you are so confused cause where was he? why is he here? why didn’t he tell me he was gonna be here? and you want to talk to him and ask him what happened but he just says ‘Wait for me Ran’. And you trust him (#2). But he disappears. Again. Where did he go? What happened? Who knows, certainly not you.
Then you are on stage during your high school play and someone dies and BAM, Shinichi appears again. You thought that little Conan was actually Shinichi but here he is. And he didn’t call, he didn’t warn you he was gonna be there. You are confused and probably angry and you have so many questions but he comes closer to you and whispers ‘I have something important to tell you’. Next day you find yourselves again with him and everything seems to be back to normal. You are so happy. He’s back! He even asks you to go out for dinner! Maybe this time he won’t leave. Maybe he’ll explain. Maybe I finally get to understand what happened. Maybe- ‘Don’t worry Ran I’ll be back soon!’. And you trust him (#3). Next thing you know, Conan is apologizing because Shinichi had to leave. And you’re broken, and you have enough of this, cause he did it again. Whitout any explanation. He left you. Because solving cases is more important than you. Solving cases is more important than being with you.
Then he appears again. But it doesn’t… feel like him? No, that’s not him. Except for the fact that Shinichi IS there, but as the Shiragami. And he saved you when you fell in the forest. Again, you have so many questions. Where have you been? Why didn’t you tell me you were gonna be here? What’s happening? You want to confront him. He’s leaving to solve the next case and you stop him, but… Shinichi reassures you that he’ll come back. ‘I’m sure the question you wanted to ask is the same as mine.’. And you trust him (#4). But he won’t come back. Again.
This is becoming too much. Shinichi’s never there for you when you need him. I’ll come back… Wait for me… You’re getting tired of this. Still, you choose to trust him. One more time. You forgive him. Because you love him. You convince yourself that if you’ll wait for him, he’ll eventually come back and explain everything.
Then one day, guess what? You go to London! Shinichi’s gonna be so jealous! But you care about him and you don’t want him to be sad cause he couldn’t come, so you spend hours and hours on the internet, looking for everything a fan of Sherlock Holmes could love about London. You are so excited! You are in London and you call him and-what? ‘I’m solving a case and I don’t have much time, sorry’. WHAT?! You get mad at him, but if he told you he’s solving a case it must be important after all. You call him again to apologize.
But then something happens. You hear it. The Big Bang through the phone. He’s in London. You find him, and this time, you want to confront him.
Why didn’t you tell me? He keeps finding excuses. But this is too much. You decide not to trust him this time. He keeps leaving you and he’s gonna do it this time as well. You are sure about this. Love is 0, cause everything he’s been doing is playing with you and your faith in him. Everytime, everytime he tells you he’ll come back and he never does. Does he know how much he made you cry? Does he know how many times you needed his help and he wasn’t there? But you keep falling for him. Everytime. Because you love him, and you are so stupid cause there’s nothing you can do about it. Stupid, stupid Ran. You just want to run away from him, just like he’s been doing with you for the past months.
So, this is the situation. I don’t know if Shinichi would’ve lost Ran forever, but you see, I think Shinichi himself realised this was too much. Because Ran deserves better. Because this is not fair. Because she has nothing to do with this, it’s all his fault. Because he loves her. And so, he tells her. Just for once, he says fuck everything. It’s risky and reckless and stupid, and there’s gonna be consequences. But he loves her. He loves her because he’s fucked up, and he makes her suffer, and he doesn’t deserve her, and he makes her wait for him… but she keeps waiting for him. Why does she keep waiting for me? Who knows what’s going on in heart? Why can’t he deduce that? But after all, ‘The heart of a woman whom one likes… how can someone accurately deduce that!’
You trust him (#5). But this time, you truly smile while you keep waiting for him. Because you know that this time it’s really gonna be worth it.
Hope you liked my analysis! I hope you read it without getting bored since it’s really long (:
