isn't that revolutionary

Today, April the 2nd 2017, is 20 years since Revolutionary Girl Utena first aired! Utena is my favourite anime, and I can’t even describe how much the franchise means to me as a whole.

@missshamour made a video of all of the Utena episode previews put together, and it actually is really interesting to see them all at once. I would especially recommend this to anyone who hasn’t watched the series more than once. The episode previews actually reveal a lot about Utena and Anthy.

Hi I love your Wish By Spirit And If Yes. One thing that always pops into my head though, the Whitebeard Pirates? How they kidnapped Ace until he agreed to join them? I kinda want them to do that to Sabo....just take him. When the RA asks for him back their just like "No. This is what happens when you don't take care of your toys, they get taken away." And Sabo just being so much happier cause he's around Ace all of the time, I mean he prob tried to escape for a while but No he's one of them now

Ahhhh I’m so glad you like Wish by Spirit! Thank you, that’s so kind of you to say! haha, that’s a hilarious thought, I love that thought of the Whitebeards running away with Sabo over their shoulders going “na na na~”!


“I’m just here for a few days,” Sabo tells them, and Whitebeard laughs.

“Of course, son,” he says. “You’re always welcome here!”

Halfway around, Sabo stops and turns back because that’s not quite right. “I am?” he asks.

“Course you are!” Whitebeard booms at him. “All my sons can come and go as they please.”

That’s really not right. “I’m not yours,” he points out.

An arm drops over his shoulder and a familiar, warm weight leans into his back. “You kinda are,” Ace points out.

“I’m really not,” Sabo retorts. “I have a job and a life and everything.”

“And we’d never take you away from that,” Whitebeard tells him with an implacable kind of gentleness. “But our home is yours.”

“It’s too late now,” Ace says, really loudly and still right in his ear. “You’re already family.”

That’s a loaded word if ever there was one, and Sabo shrugs Ace off, perhaps a bit sharper than he meant to. “I don’t need family,” he says, loading the word with bitterness. “I’m not anyone’s son.”

Ace wraps himself around Sabo’s back again, offering comfort without clinging. “Neither was I,” he murmurs in Sabo’s ear, “but they took me anyway.”

“I can’t afford–” Sabo starts, and then he makes the mistake of meeting Whitebeard’s eyes.

“We aren’t asking anything of you, son,” Whitebeard says. “And we never will. But we’ll be here, always, and we’re yours to claim if you want it.”

That’s not fair–it’s not fair. “You can’t give me a choice,” Sabo says, and it comes out higher and faster than he’d meant it to. “Don’t–you can’t just do that.”

He doesn’t get choices. No one gives him choices. If he wants something, he has to choose it for himself and then fight for it, tooth and claw, like he did for Ace and Luffy. Like he did for his position in the Army. Nobody gets handed things in this world, especially not things as nice as family.

“You can’t seriously think–” Sabo says, waving the arm that Ace isn’t pinning. “You can’t just offer someone unconditional acceptance like–like it’s an invitation to dinner!”

“Why not?” Whitebeard asks, genuinely curious.

Ace scoots sideways to lean on his shoulder instead of across his back. “You’re not winning this one,” he tells Sabo. “Seriously. They got me.”

Which is a valid point, really, but Sabo’s not prepared to let this go without a fight. “I’m not yours,” he tells Whitebeard, because if there’s one thing he is, it’s stubborn.

“That’s fine,” Whitebeard says, and at the same time Ace grins at Sabo and adds, “not yet.”

Good! News!

I!

Okay, SO!

A while back I bought this book by Tatsuhiko Shibusawa because it was my only lead on the mysterious クシュポデュメー word in Petit Banshou (from the Revival Rose Egg Sophia CD), which I’ve determined refers to the Scottish brothers (a pair of conjoined twins from the 1400s who were in the court of King James IV), but I was never able to find out how to spell it or what language it was or find any other resources using that word

WELL

There was a mention of a source, but I’d ignored it because mobile Google translate said “Habsburg Museum” (as if I could just go to Europe for this), and I didn’t check past that because there was a one-kanji word in there that I thought would be hard to look up to use in a search on my computer (it wasn’t).

Just now I was looking up Hapsburg Museum because I was to the point where I was about to go to the Utena forum (which I don’t like but it’s what we have) and say, “Hey, anyone in Germany? Can you go to this museum for me?” except there wasn’t any one obvious Hapsburg Museum, so I did take the time to get the exact phrase into a search engine and see what came up

IT TURNS OUT

It was described earlier in the book, actually, which makes a lot of sense. It’s just a very difficult book (in Japanese), so I hadn’t deciphered much besides those few all-important lines.

IT IS the Wunderkammer, Cabinet of Curiosities, built by Rudolf II–yes, Rudolf of Roses from the new CD, also mentioned at the end of this song with the repeating phrase “Grotto Rudolf labyrinthos.”  (As a side note, I’m positive there’s a duel song that mentions a grotto labyrinth as well; I just don’t remember which).

IT’S ALL CONNECTED

Well, actually, other members of the House of Hapsburg had their own cabinets of curiosities, but his is the one specifically mentioned in this book, so it’s the most likely.

I AM ONTO SOMETHING. I WILL FIND IT.

Could you maybe draw Lucio giving us some well needed motivation in this panic attack inducing time? I think we could all need it. (Lighter note: Love your art so much!)

he believes in us!

WIP tag challenge! I was tagged by @dragonofmordor (bless you)

The fact is: the lack of liberty is, most certainly, a recurring problem in the human society, since, well, ever. The nature of the human being, while desperate to seek freedom for itself, is also very much inclined to take it from others. A rather egocentric characteristic, if you ask me.

You must be asking yourself, though, who would say such things so plainly, and so I tell you that I am Loc. Loc? Yes, Loc, otherwise called Loczinski. Now, I am quite sure you do not know me, but I am willing to bet I will turn into a more interesting character thorough this narrative. Oddly enough, you will get to know me in a story that revolves around a dress.
