Aaron Helbing describing Barry's feelings about Iris
And now he wants to be with Iris forever, so it… felt exciting to try and see what happens when one of the team is killed and it’s the most important person to Barry and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to make sure she survives.
…You have a specific relationship with your mother and your father, and a very different relationship with the woman that you want to spend the rest of your life with…
No more WestAllen? When The Flash showrunners first began developing this storyline concerning Iris’ fate, they “definitely know where” they were going to take it. “I don’t want to spoil anything but we love Candice Patton so much. We love Iris and Barry together,” Helbing says. “We just found it to be so interesting. Barry couldn’t save his mom. He couldn’t save his dad. And now he wants to be with Iris forever, so it gives us a lot of opportunities to revisit that future event based on Vibe’s [Carlos Valdes] abilities, and to us that felt exciting to try and see what happens when one of the team is killed and it’s the most important person to Barry and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to make sure she survives.”
Aniban, an independent label, has announced the release of their ゲスおと☆ series, with two volumes currently planned for release in February.
After being brought along to a big marriage partner hunting party (read: 婚活パーティー) by your company senpai, you find yourself overwhelmed by the chaos and liveliness of the party, and are subsequently abandoned by your senpai, who leaves you to go talk to a man she sets her sights on.
Awkwardly standing about with no real idea of what to do, you hear a man’s voice calling out you.
However, that man is considered highly “individualistic,” or in other words, seems like he could be categorized as a ゲス (gesu*) type…
The first “gesu” guy in question is 千束友靖 (Senzoku Tomoyasu), a swimming instructor who has just recently broken up with his girlfriend. Worried over the fact that he hasn’t been able to stay with any particular girl for a long period of time, Tomoyasu decides to go to a matchmaking party for the purpose of finding a bride.
Given that it’s a party conducted with the specific purpose of finding a marriage partner, he figures that a girl he falls in love with there won’t be able to escape the prospect of marriage with him.
And of course, Tomoyasu takes a liking to you, and you both end up going home together.
Overjoyed by the fact that he found you, Tomoyasu is unable to hold back…
ゲスおと☆ 白金泉 (Right):
The second “gesu” guy is 白金泉 (Shirogane Izumi), a cellist who is also an extreme clean-freak, and is forced to go to the marriage partner hunting party by his grandmother. Annoyed by just having to share the same air with other people, Izumi nevertheless tries to hide his discomfort to the best of his ability once the party begins.
It is then, however, that you appear in front of him…
*ゲス = low-life/basically kind of an a** ( • v • )
**Namikawa’s volume may not be R18; it’s unclear due to conflicting information (but it’s likely not R18, as he didn’t use a pseudonym).
“Barry,” she whines as she feels his lips land on her neck, teeth scraping against her skin. “I’m trying to get ready.” She attempts to keep her voice firm, but to her frustration it turns a little breathless as he sucks lightly at the spot right behind her ear.
Doing her best to ignore him and his now wandering hands she focuses on the mirror and doing her makeup. Tonight all their friends and family are coming over to see their new apartment and she wants everything to be perfect. Of course Barry is ready and he has been for awhile and she knows he’s impatient. Their guests will be here soon and she doesn’t feel even close to being ready and he’s making it difficult to focus on the task at hand.
He gently brushes her hair off her shoulder so his mouth can have better access and he starts to leave soft little kisses along her shoulder. Fuck. Closing her eyes she lowers the hand holding her eyeliner and lets herself get lost in the feel of his lips on her skin. And it feels amazing and there’s a part of her that just wants to give in. But that would be exactly what he wants.
So gathering some inner restraint she forces herself to try and ignore him. But then she feels his teeth and tongue teasing her neck.
“Barry!” he hums against her neck. Oh she hates him right now. Hates what he’s doing to her and hates that he knows it too.
Frustrated she sets down her eyeliner and turns around suddenly causing him to take a surprised step back. She fixes her eyes on him in a glare, but he just smirks at her. And it’s infuriating because that smirk does something to her and she kind of wants to kiss his right off his face. Of course that would be giving in and she can’t do that. Right?
We love Candice Patton so much. We love Iris and Barry together, we just found it to be so interesting. Barry couldn’t save his mom. He couldn’t save his dad. And now he wants to be with Iris forever, so it gives us a lot of opportunities to revisit that future event based on Vibe’s abilities, and to us that felt exciting to try and see what happens when one of the team is killed and it’s the most important person to Barry and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to make sure she survives.
Barry Allen asking Iris West to dance, through the years
“He’s a jerk,” Barry stated flicking a ball of wadded paper into Iris’ recycling bin.
“You don’t even know the guy, Barry,” Iris remarked throwing a pillow at Barry who was spinning in her desk chair.
“He looks like a jerk!” Barry exclaimed exasperatedly. “Do you see the way he gawks at other girls? It’s scandalous.”
“Yeah, real scandalous,” Iris rolled her eyes at her best friend. “He looks at girls like any other boy at our school including you, Bar. He’s just my dance date.”
“You couldn’t have gone with someone who isn’t him?”
Iris glanced at down at her notebook and bit her lip, “I didn’t exactly have a line of guys waiting to take me, Bar.”
“That’s not true,” Barry plopped down next to her on her bed and tenderly pushed away a strand of hair away from her face. “You had a lot of guys going after you. Do you know how many I had to scare away?”
