So this has probably been done before, but I just want to say it since I’ve been thinking about it. Both Anti and Dark are the opposites of their creators, right? Which obviously means they’re different from each other, but I thought the differences were pretty interesting.
First, we have Anti:
He’s chaotic. He thrives off being unsettling and making the viewer uncomfortable. He somehow simultaneously hisses and screeches when he talks, adores using knives to mutilate himself, and finds the viewer’s uneasiness amusing. His anger is volatile and explosive, with no real direction. He uses it against everything. He doesn’t care who the viewer is, he just cares that he has an audience. Someone that he can interrupt their daily life in some odd, glitchy way.
Then there’s Dark:
Dark is Anti’s exact opposite, in a way. While Jack is Anti’s origin, Jack is just as chaotic as Anti, just without all the anger and need to make things uncomfortable. Dark, on the other hand, isn’t chaotic. He’s still just as angry, if not more so, as Anti is, but his is more focused, more contained. His intentions aren’t to unsettle the viewer and cause them fear. No, where Anti screeches, Dark croons. He’ll lull the viewer into a false sense of security, gain their trust, and use them for his own devices. He’s manipulative in his anger, in his lust for revenge. He is a vengeful spirit, you will not know his true intentions until it is too late. He acts like the calm, but he is very much the storm.
And when you put them side by side, these differences become very apparent. Anti is cheerfully chaotic whereas Dark is muted and determined, his chaos carefully crafted. You will not forget Anti, but Dark will fade into the background and come back when you wrongfully think it’s safe.
So I recently started Samurai love ballad: party and I have to say, SO ADDICTED OH DEAR LORD! xD My good friend has been making me a fan of it’s characters for ages, so when I finally picked it up, as you can expect, I went crazy xD
Personally what I fell in love with instantly was the music and artwork. I loved how the music changed with the mood, which just enhanced the experience. Not to mention the MC actually having a mind of her own, which is usually not the case and honestly a let down in most otomes. She refreshingly has a great personality and a strong mind. I was hocked as soon as I finished the prologue. So if you are a fan of historical stories and romances. This game is definitely recommended from my end. And as a bonus the men are gorgeous as well haha(we all know most of you were wondering that lol). So ya, that’s what I am up to these days apart from other things. If anyone of you starts the game, do let me know how you found it. I am personally currently playing Masamune’s route and DAGNAMMIT KAWAI POTATOS STAPH. *ahem* Anyways, until next time peeps! Have fun!
How do you think Sasuke's story would have gone if he were never told the truth about Itachi?
Sasuke didn’t even imagine his life after Itachi’s death. Everything he lived for, everything he trained for, everything he planned, ended with his revenge, with Itachi’s death. There was nothing beyond that.
In the anime (ep478) he’s shown on the ground, beside Itachi’s dead body, falling into unconsciousness and saying: “Niisan, I’ll be seeing you soon”. I always headcanoned that he would have wanted to die after Itachi, and that scene validates it. If someone objects that it’s something added by SP, let me remind that (cap309, or ep52 or 53) when Naruto yelled at Sasuke that Orochimaru wanted to use his body as a vessel (thus implying the death of his identity, his consciousness, at the very least) Sasuke clearly replies: “If I can obtain the power to defeat Itachi by giving myself over to Orochimaru I would gladly give him my life many times over”.
words:2067 Carl Grimes x reader The walking dead Request:
Carl imagine (in Alexandria. Up to date when he only has one eye) lots of kisses and fluff (but not like overboard fluff). lol I got finals next week I need something cute. Warnings: this turned into a little smut, but there’s more fluff.
“get dressed, in the nicest thing you have, meet me on the porch at 7, we’re going on a date″ Carl runs in my room as I was retrieving a thin jacket to help Carol plant some vegetables. I nod startled. He goes to leave my room but I whistle him back. His head pops around the door and I walk over to him pecking his lips. I go to pull away and he grabs my cheek holding me close. I start laughing and he smiles pulling away. “see you later” I salute making him laugh and rush back down the stairs and outside. I race to my window to see him run up to Rick, Daryl and Aaron, he says something to them and they nod, he then rushes over to Maggie and Carol who are planting flowers and vegetables he says something to them and they also nod. what is going on? I brush it off and head outside going straight for Carol and Maggie.
“what’s up with Carl?” I ask them. I see them look at each other panicked out of the corner of my eye. “oh nothing, just wanted to see what we’re planting s’all” Maggie shrugs. I squint my eyes but decide to ignore and get on with work. It gets to about 6 and I decide to go get changed but head to Maggie, my sisters, house. I knock on her door and wait.
“hey y/n, come in you okay?” She asks me confused. I nod and bite my lip. She sees how nervous I am and sits me down on the couch holding my hand. “what’s wrong?” she asks again. “Carl’s taking me on a date tonight and I don’t know what to wear, I know that’s stupid I’ll just go, wear whatever” I sigh standing up, she grins and pulls me back down. “No you’re going to stay right her while I do you’re hair and makeup.” She grins like a little school girl. “makeup?” I ask with wide eyes. “yeah, I was saving it for a special day” She smiles. “but I’ve had it for a while now, and nothing has come up” she shrugs. I smile at her. “don’t waste it on me!” I exclaim. She shakes her head. “shh, go sit in the kitchen chair while I get it” she grins. She runs upstairs to get it while I silently sit at the chair, I’d been here so many times but with the way I was feeling it felt like a foreign country. She comes back with a small bag. She applies a little bit of eyeshadow, eyeliner and lipstick then pulls my long hair into a beautiful braid. She hands me a small hand held mirror when she’s done and I look at her shocked. “beautiful” she confirms patting my shoulders for me to stand up. I do so and she pushes the chair under and grabs my hand pulling me out of the door and into my own house I live in with Daryl, Rosita and Carol. We head up the stairs and sort through my small collection of clothes, we decide on some green shorts and a crop top.
I obviously wear my signature boots. She looks at me covering her mouth. “mum would have loved to see you like this” She whispers. I look down and hug her trying not to squash her stomach. “Love you mags” I whisper. “love you to peanut” she giggles. “no crying you’ll ruin your makeup! When Carl sees you he’s going to freak out” She winks. I blush. I look down again then look at her nervously wringing my hands out. “we’ve never technically been on a date, we’re just together, what if I mess it or something I don’t know.” I stutter. She rubs my arms. “I kind of lied. I know what you guys are doing, you’re going to love it and he’ll love you. Speaking of love, are you in love with him?” She smirks moving down to my eye level. With tears in my eyes I nod. “I think so Mags, I really really love him” She grins so hard and I blush. “come on it’s time to go” she pats my butt pushing me out the door. I slowly walk over to the Grimes household and when I look up I see Carl standing there looking as handsome as ever, even with one eye. I frown when I see he’s not wearing his hat and has an even more nervous expression on his face than I do. I silently walk up his steps and look up at him. He has his mouth open in shock. “You look really beautiful” he smiles shyly. I blush and reach up to his neck pulling him down into a kiss, he grips my waist and I sigh at the familiar feeling in my stomach- explosions. We pull away and he takes my hand leading me down the stairs.
“where are we going? we can’t do much” I question. He leads me into the middle of the street and stops. I furrow my eyebrows but he ignores me and looks back at his house nodding. Music starts playing and he grips my arms pulling one onto his back and the other in his hand.
We start swaying to the music and I rest my head on his chest listening to his heart beat. “not that I’m not enjoying it, cause I am, a lot but why are we doing this?” I whisper glancing up at him.
He pulls away with a little smirk and dips me down. I giggle when he pulls me back up. “well, we never got a chance to go to prom so I made my own” He grins looking up to his house where everyone is sitting around in chairs, beer bottles littering the place and everyone in their best clothing. They are mostly all glancing up at us. I look at Carl and pull his cheeks down to mine. “I love you so much” I whisper nudging his nose. “I love you too” he grins, making his dimples pop. I poke on of them and he rolls his eyes pecking my lips again. I whine and pull him back to me. Without thinking about the group of adults sitting and watching only yards away we start making out. When we run out of air we pull away resting out foreheads on each others.
“come on, I have an idea” he smirks. I’d trust him with my life so I follow him. We end up at the little lake, it had been thoroughly cleaned out after the whole walker invasion thing. It had filled with clean again and I often saw people swimming in it on a hot day. Carl drops my hand and I look at him him confused.He winks at me and strips himself of his shirt. I blush when I realise what he’s doing. “what are you doing, they’ll see us” he shrugs unbuttoning his pants and pulling them down leaving him in his underwear. When he sees me with crossed arms he sighs playfully and comes towards me. He pushes my arms away from my chest and holds the bottom of my shirt, he whistles signalling me to lift my arms up. I huff and he do so, so he can lift my shirt off. He then proceeds to pull my shorts down and I’m left in my underwear glaring at him but no doubt checking him out. He catches me and winks, prancing into the water.
“come on, its so nice” he yells. I stomp my foot and run into the water but immediately squeal and turn around making my way out. I feel arms lift me up by my stomach and I scream a little.
I wriggle against him and yell out. “Carl no” I shout with a giggle. Rick and the others come running but stop and grin when they see us. “Carl no! its cold please if you love me you’d let me go” I scream. He starts laughing. “ok” he says letting me go, but I drop into the cold water. He swims closer to me and I wrap my legs around his waist to try and lift myself away from the water a little bit
“I hate you” I pout. He shakes his head. “no you loooooove me” he teases pecking my nose. We hear multiple splashes around us and turn around. Everyone else was joining us in the water, most of them still dressed. Rick swims past and flicks water at us. We grin and shove some his way, this causes a huge water fight. We have so much fun messing around with everyone, the people who hadn’t decided to come in watch us from the little shore. After a while everyone starts leaving. “you love birds coming?” Rosita winks. I look at Carl and he stares at me with a smile, I turn back around a shake my head at her. “think we’re going to stay here a while longer.” I reply. She smirks and winks. Rick, Michonne, Maggie and Daryl walk past and all have huge smirks on their face. “protection” Michonne whispers. I pale and blush at the same time. Carl laughs loudly tipping his head back, I peck his throat and he immediately stops.
“do you think they’d be able to see us over here from the houses?” He asks. “uhm no, the bushes are in the way a little and its too dark, they’d only see out silhouette.” I grin. He smirks and pushes his lips to mine. I reach behind me and unclasp my bra. His hands immediately fly to my chest and he starts feeling and playing around. I moan into his mouth.
“I can’t believe my first time is going to be in the middle of a lake” I giggle. He smiles back. “we can go somewhere else, or we can stop” he mutters. I shake my head no. “this is perfect baby” I say as I push his wet hair off his forehead. He reaches down and pulls his underwear off, then mine. He flings them across the lake and I gasp. He smirks and brings me closer to him, my legs wind around his waist. He enters me and I gasp at the feeling. He buries his face in my neck.
“Carl” I moan. “I know baby, cum with me” he sighs peppering kisses on my chest. We cum together and muffle our screams in each other’s shoulders. He pulls out and we swim around for a little while longer.
Ricks POV* “did they just?” Michonne asks me. I laugh and nod. Everyone gathers around. “did they just have sex?” Maggie fumes. We all laugh at her. “yeah, they think we can’t see” I confirm. She balls her fists. “I swear if my sister gets pregnant with your sons kid I’ll kill him myself” She spits. I laugh and bring her in for a hug. “deal” I smile. Just then we see them emerge from the water looking around for their clothes. Rosita holds them up with a wicked grin and we all laugh loudly. “Hey Carl, need some help buddy?” I yell. He holds his hand up and shakes his head. “We’re ok dad” he yells back. They sit in the water for a while before they can’t stand the cold any longer. They start snapping branches off the tree and make a run for it. We all cheer them as they run into y/n’s house. They try to open the door but Daryl dangles the keys. We all laugh even harder. They are blushing bright red. I point to the door behind me and they sigh. They sprint over to our house and up the steps and through the door straight up to Carls bedroom.
normal POV* “that was so embarrassing!” I gasp. Carl laughs and chucks me one of his shirts. I pull it over my body quickly. He dresses himself and comes behind me pulling me onto his bed. I lay my head against his chest. “thank you for ‘prom’ I had a really good time” I poke his nose. “I love you” he whispers. “I love you to dork” I grin pecking his lips then lying back down. We fall asleep right there, holding each other.
