it's too amazing to be real i think

anonymous asked:

can you say something positive about this show bc i truly feel horrible and all i see are negative comments

sure thing fam! I’ve got a million and one great things to say about shadowhunters! 

the cast

  • let’s start with the cast…..oh man the cast, have you ever seen or heard of a lovelier group of people? a sweet and perfect redheaded angel? a cow-loving  farmer sunflower man? a sexy british rapscallion? a latina goddess who is the sweetest angel in the world? a hilarious but also very profound and extremely talent soft brooklyn hipster? the most talented dancer/human to ever grace the world who is also a complete wondeful dork? the sweetest and funniest and most wonderful person who ever did wear an ascot? they’re perfect 
  • nothing makes me happier than their friendships with each other and just their general sweetness :))))
  • i mean every dynamic of theirs is adorable and hilarious? kat and alberto’s friendship, domberto’s antics, the parabatri feels, dom’s lil crush on matthew, the esther/shelby/shumdario friendship! em being an older sister to kat!! how lovely are they all!!
  • and of course, of course, how earnest they are towards the show because they know how important it is to all of us, and it’s heartwarming to see all the effort that they put into the show, as well as the amount of respect and compassion they have while interacting with fans is the most wonderful thing 
  • and of course, the fact that the people behind the show always listen to and respond to fan feedback, positive or negative! they really care about us, and it’s lovely to see :) 

the show 

  • personally, i think the writing of the show has gotten amazing! season 1 was fantastic, but all of the sort of cringey dialogue and ‘wow, nobody would actually say those words’ is gone and everything is much more textured and real, and it’s really really really living up to the potential of its premise! 
  • it’s got a gritty NYC setting and its about badass angelic soldiers fighting a demon apocalypse, all while battling these insidious problems inside their own society as well, with no real moral high ground to be achieved, but really just a scramble for survival and trying to do the right thing,  and the tone of the new season is JUST PERFECT for that 
  •  i think the show has such amazing and dimensionalized relationships like i haven’t seen in a lot of much more highbrow fiction - the romantic stuff too, but i love how important and well-written platonic and family relationships are in the show! 
  • you look at a family like the lightwoods, and they’re so real - not just the love that they have for each other, but also the issues that they face, and the struggles between parents and children and siblings. amazing. well-written AS FUCK 
  • the bonds between alec and izzy and jace!! are so well-written, so well-acted!! the relationships between luke and clary/simon/maia!! astonishingly good
  • there’s so much texture and richness to all of them it’s crazy 
  • but not JUST those super close familial relationships - every single interaction has me floored with how great it is, including ‘rare’ ones like jace and magnus, or clary and alec, or clary and magnus, or magnus and izzy
  • every character has such great acting chemistry with one another, and so every relationship just comes across as rich and real in a way that a lot of lesser shows can’t accomplish 
  • let’s talk about acting! how amazingly has every cast member improved over the course of the show? even if they didn’t start off the first season as amazing, can you believe how great everyone is? how beautifully kat captured the grief of losing jocelyn in 2x05? how amazingly dom is portraying jace’s inner struggles and suffering about valentine and his identity? how much dimension and depth harry can give us in just one glance? how matt perfectly portrays the inner conflicts of a man who was never allowed to show his true feelings on his face? how beautifully alberto shows the struggle of not belonging anywhere that you used to call home? with what grace emeraude brings us izzy’s trials and suffering? how perfectly isaiah depicted not only the grief over losing everything - his world, his parabatai, the woman he loves, but also the struggles of having to get up from the pain and be there for his children? amazing. hats off to all and emmys all around 
  • every character also has so much - so much - dimension?
  • like, not a single one of the characters is the type of YA-fantasy caricature than you see so much in this genre - each of them is fully fleshed out with flaws and strengths, and each character interacts and copes with the horrible events of their lives in completely different ways, and it’s just lovely to see that kind of commitment to character even on a fantasy/action-driven show, and that not all of it has to be directly addressed and shoved in your face, but can be communicated through subtleties of acting and writing 
  • and each of them has their own critical/crucial role to play in the story? none of them are incidental or disposable and i love it! 
  • the special effects in season two are SO! damn!! good!! holy hell did you see the warlock fight this episode? beautiful! astonishing! 
  • i love the mythology of the show! it’s so crazy interesting to explore this world, because it’s not the type of world you see in a typical YA-low-fantasy type of setting - the shadowhunters’ society is such a new and refreshing mythology, with all of their customs and their ceremonies and their laws and myths and angels and runes - i love seeing them unveil more and more of it, because it’s honestly so original and interesting 
  • like did you see the rune ceremony in this ep? it was almost haunting b/c i just love thinking about this ancient order of angelic warriors and of course all of the complications of the societal hierarchies in relation to the other types of magical races
  • and don’t get me started on the other types of mythologies, especially warlocks! i love the idea of all these esoteric spells and potions and crap that shadowhunters don’t even know about and can’t even imagine the power of - it’s so interesting and i love how they’re fleshing it all out bit by bit 
  • and i love the merging of the regular urban NYC setting with the shadow word, in locales like the jade wolf, the hotel dumort, and even the insitute - how interesting and seamless it seems sometimes? it just gives the world so much texture
  • and of course, the romance is great! like i said, every actor has fantastic chemistry with each other - even if they’re not endgames like simon/maia or climon, they’re so well-acted and well portrayed 
  • malec is fantastic - i’ve almost never seen a relationship on a show portrayed with such gravitas and realness! i love how they didn’t let either character get subsumed by the relationship, but they’re also not ignoring the existence of it to give the character their own storylines independent of it 
  • and of course it’s so darn cute :) and harry and matthew put so much time and effort into it and im so thankful for them 
Breath of the Wild wishlist

So now that I have done two play throughs, and there are a few things that I have that would make cool update patches.

- Interacting with the dogs: petting and throwing tree branches to play fetch

- More Link and Zelda moments; what we have is good, but it leaves you wishing for more.

-Future Hero Mode has the reverse happen when crit cooking under a blood moon, fewer hearts and weak buffs.

-Eating dubious food or rock hard food has some sort of de-buff

- Eating monster type food will be like Russian roulette, maybe a really good buff, maybe leaves you with half a heart, you just don’t know

- I wish there were more cave systems to get lost in.

- Ganon needs another stage to the boss fight; two rounds aren’t enough.

- Besides the shrines, and future DLC, having a few more optional dungeons would be nice.

- More fan service; The gerudo outfit was amazing, but I know they can do better than that…

- Let Link speak! Even if its just to utter Zelda’s name, anything!

-When wearing the female Gerudo outfit outside of the desert, let more NPCs think that Link is a girl.

- More side quests; they’re good, and really feel good when you get around to finishing them, specially Tarry Town

-There isn’t a ping pong match to the death like past games


- Animate when Link goes on the water bed, rito down bed, and both the gerudo and goron masage!

- Let the selfies be real selfies, otherwise it looks like invisible person is taking a full body shot of Link

- I’d like to see some more backstory with Link’s relationship with the Zora’s and Mipha

-More outfits would be awesome ;)

- Link making chicken noodle soup would be so nice too; we have poultry, we’ve got carrots, and easily add in tabantha wheat and some herbs to get a soup!

- And kiss the girl already! Lets not wait for the grass to grow!

If anybody has anything to add to my list, I’d love to hear ideas.

anonymous asked:

Yeah, but what's the point of shipping Levi with Hanji or anybody else, when Eruri is already like practically canon ??????

This is so lame, that’d be like me saying “oh you can’t ship Eruri, ‘cause Erwin is dead”, which frankly makes no sense whatsoever. And maybe you thought i’d react to this like “WTF FUCK YOU”, but i won’t. Instead i’ll just give you a lot of boring reasons why this was so lame. 

1)The only 100% canon ship in SnK is Yumikuri and we all know it. And that’s because the editor said it himself. The only ones who can say anything is canon is Isayama, the editor and, at some extent, the animators. PS: I’m talking about relationship with reciprocity, because okay Bert loved Annie, but we don’t know if it’s like that the other way around.. 

2)We can all have our reasons to believe a certain ship is closer to being canon. I have my reasons to believe Levihan makes sense, you have your reasons for Eruri and someone may have their own reasons for Ereri or Rivetra or whatever and… you know what? They are all freaking valid! But, at the end of the day, none of us can tell for sure. 

3)I respect Eruri and theirshippers a lot, specially the ones that do fan art because DAMN THEY’RE TALENTED. And yeah, there’s plenty of reasons to ship them. They have a beautiful and pure bond which honestly makes cry, whenever i see those amazing fanarts i get the feels. I personally think you don’t have to ship something romantically, to appreciate its value. Personally, i like Eruri without the romance, ‘cause for me friendship can be even more important than romantic love. I like the idea of Levi being devoted to him without anything romantic intended, because it makes it purer to my eyes. And if you think otherwise that’s totally fine.

4)I think shipping should be fun, sometimes we take it too seriously. Let’s remember the characters aren’t real, so if someone wanna ship Levi with goddamn Pixis is their own fucking decision. And more important than that, SnK isn’t about romance. I don’t want it to be like that! Subtle romance is more interesting in this kind of genre. For me, that Levi cares for Hanji is all the canon romance i need. I’m not gonna lie, if Isayama shows us someday that they’re a couple i’ll be so excited,  get all fangirl and shit, but i don’t need it to happen. I like SnK just the way it is, i don’t want it to become a shoujo or something lmfao

5)You know what i’ve discovered about shipping? You see, some people think LEVIHAN MAKES NO SENSE, THEY’RE TOO DIFFERENT… and i’ve noticed it has to do with personal experience and our own way of seeing the characters. Like the way i comprehend Levi is very different from the way that you or anyone does it. Example: Ereri shippers usually see Levi as this tough guy, in fics he’s always like rich and sorta into S&M lol and has this really dominant personality, for Eruri shippers Levi is this really in love devoted guy, generally the way they portray Levi is REALLY romantic, he’s usually mesmerized by Erwin. And both of those Levi aren’t the Levi i perceive. Like i’ve said before, for me he’s a regular dude, not particularly romantic nor particularly dominant, he’s just a guy. Same goes for Hanji, some people see her as a crazy scientist, i see her as an intelligent and strong commander with a big heart. That’s why we all ship different things and we all have different reasons. The reasons you an Eruri shipper can tell me for them being canon, maybe aren’t reasons from my point of view and this works the other way around. And i love the fact that we all perceive the characters differently because it enriches the fandom. For example, i REALLY like some Ereri fics, some of them are so much fun! And they always make Levi so hot which is highly appreciated. But they aren’t my OTP, i don’t connect with it. And it’s fine if someone doesn’t connect with Levihan, hell, it’s fine if they’re the NOTP. It’s all good, man. Stop caring so much about these kind of stuff and enjoy SnK, enjoy shipping, enjoy the feels, enjoy the plot, enjoy the writing, enjoy the art style, enjoy chatting with fans who have different ideas than you and just chill.

  • Them: So, what are your hobbies?
  • Me: Well, in my daydreams, I can sing, dance, write, do amazing art, and take beautiful photos. I know seven forms of mixed martial arts, plus some street-boxing style fighting, too! Ooh, sometimes I have psychic powers or magic, and I LOVE to daydream about going out with friends and trying crazy things together--
  • Them: Literally what the actual fuck I said hobbies in real life not in your daydreams????????
  • Me: .... Oh.
  • Me: I like to daydream a lot. :)

So I finished 13 Reasons Why the other day, and i was thinking… Justin Foley and Alex Standall would make an amazing couple. So naturally I googled it. and OH MY HOLY CRAP THE ACTORS WHO PLAY JUSTIN AND ALEX ARE DATING IN REAL LIFE JESUS CHRIST HOW BEAUTIFUL AND AMAZING AND PERFECT THEY ARE TOO PRECIOUS OKAY I’M DONE NOW THANK YOU GOODNIGHT

  • if it meant i got to be with her, have children, grow old with her.. if it meant we'd die together, be buried together then yes. i would take the cure
  • i would never hurt you, you're safe with me
  • when you and i were together every single atom in my body told me that it was the right thing. that we were the perfect fit.
  • actually i don't pretend to be anything when i'm with her. that's the whole point. i just get to be myself.

Family — Wonho AU | Part Four

A/N: Here is part four for you lovely readers! Thank you again for your patience and interest in the story. I’m aiming for one more part but it may turn into two if I get too carried away. But for now, I hope you all enjoy this part! and quick side not: YA’LL THOSE MX TEASERS GOT ME SO SHOOK

Length: 4398 words

Parts: Prologue | One | Two | Three | Five | Six  | Seven 

You sit across from Ahreum as she browses the menu of the café you two have chosen. She catches you peeking at her and smiles. You return with a sheepish grin. “Sorry, it’s just…not weird but nostalgic to see you?”

Your words come out sounding more like a question as you struggle to find the word that fits the feeling. Even nostalgic doesn’t quite put all the emotions together. Despite your struggle Ahreum’s smile grows.

“I’m sure it’s jarring. Thank you again for agreeing to talk to me. I know it’s weird but I found you on social media and figured it was a sign for me to contact you.”

You nod not really know what to say to that and then Ahreum excuses herself to order the food she’s chosen. You sit with the cheese and fruit platter you’d ordered earlier. After running into Ahreum in the lobby you’d lost some of your appetite, and now sitting with her in the café you barely wanted to look at the food.

eva + vilde + sleep over

  • seeing p. chris and eva stuck to each others faces at every single moment has been messing with vildes brain but she just isn’t sure why exactly
  • maybe because eva is her friend and chris has shown he’s an untrustworthy asshole??? and she deserves so much much better???
  • or maybe maybe maybe its bc of the butterflies she has when she sees eva smile or recognises her amazing hair between all the other people or maybe its because…
  • but vilde doesn’t want to think about that. it gets too real and she’s not sure enough of her feelings yet (or of herself for that matter)
  • + there’s also the fact that eva is very much in a thing with chris right now
  • but one night when vilde has been drinking just a little bit too much and she’s the only one left at eva’s and they’re laying in her room, both taken up in their own thoughts she blurts it out
  • “i think about kissing you a lot”
  • and there’s silence and more silence and more silence
  • and vilde is starting to panic because what did she just say???????? did she really just say that????????

Another oldie, hope you enjoy! It’s about Shawn’s childhood friend Balir from Pickering! Created this character way back last year! xx

„Are you happy to go back home?“ my dad asks, turning his head to switch lanes, as he is pressing the gas pedal of his Mercedes further down.

The raindrops were crashing down on the car and I lean back in the passenger’s seat, stretching my legs out.
„Of course I am!“ I reply with a smile, “I’ve been craving mom’s homemade food for weeks!“

My dad smiles, eyes locked on the road. „We are all so happy to have you back home for the next weeks and we are so proud of you, Blair. You’re doing so well at college“

“Aw, thanks dad“

“How’s med school treating you? I haven’t talked to you lately,“ he says, switching lanes again.
“It’s hard but you must know,“ I glance at my dad who nods.
“Yeah, but it’s worth it“

My dad did not only go to Harvard and graduated from med school with summa cum laude, he also holds a psychology degree and I sometimes feel the pressure to do as excellent as he did in college, even though he doesn’t pressure me at all.

anonymous asked:

hi! I'm looking for a drarry fic where Harry falls in love with a Draco in sort of an alternate universe and has this whole life with him, but then goes back to his own universe and has to cope with the real Draco in his normal world? sorry if it's not specific enough and thanks in advance!!

Is it… Turn by Saras_Girl (306K)?

Summary: One good turn always deserves another. Apparently.

Thoughts: This is one of my (and pretty much everyone’s) favorite fics of all time. So it’s very likely you’ve come across it before, but also I feel it’s a bit unlikely that you would forget it? Also, I don’t know that Harry has to “cope with” the real Draco when he comes back exactly, so it’s possible you’re thinking of something else. BUT ANYWAY, Turn is another R E Q U I R E D fic, so everybody should go read it and be blown away by its sheer brilliance (if by some miracle you haven’t already). The character building and depth in this fic is simply amazing and…. yeah, literally everything is of the utmost quality. PROMISE ME you will read it.

it doesnt matter what games i play or how much i want to play them

i always end up thinking about d gray man. every day, every hour. 
this feels so unreal but also real - knowing me, i was sure that i would lose my hype and dedication to d gray man. yes, i lost the hype, but that made me more dedicated towards d gray man

its just… i never really thought about it (thats a lie, i thought about it a lot) but d gray man is really captivating. it has an element in it that makes it so different than other anime.. im not really sure what it is though

its not the dark feature, its not the suffering.. its probably what hoshino wants to express with her story - love. love regarding family, love regarding romantic relationships, characters that deserve love more than anything else, characters whose sole reason to live is their family, characters that wish they had a family, characters who question the love they recieved from their family… and the list goes on.

i might be biased, but this series is not only a masterpiece story-wise, its also a masterpiece in converting emotions. thinking about all those things and how good this series is makes me literally tear up a bit, especially thinking about how hoshino isnt able to draw this series monthly as she probably wishes for. you clearly notice how important d gray man is to her, you feel how much she loves her series and her characters, you feel her dedication towards d gray man and her fans. i admire her so much. her series captivated so many people. so many people live for this series - this just shows how incredible and mesmerizing d gray man is. 

ive got a friend whom i basically dragged into this emotional hell and she seems to really enjoy it, which makes me incredibly happy.

d gray man is just.. so amazing. i love it with every fiber of my being. 

I seriously never expected so much support from so many wonderful people! I didn’t even think it was possible haha. Every single comment and edit and drawing was just… Man. I’m speechless! This fandom has been so unbelievably sweet to me, haha- 

 I think in the end the situation (which wasn’t really more than me responding to a comment!) ended up being more fun to everyone than anything.

 Also, thanks to the followers I gained between yesterday and today I’m at 1080!!! Woah!!! So this is a thank you to everyone who’s followed me, too! You guys are all amazing. ♡♡♡♡

Pll 7x15 quick thoughts

Emison- this whole let’s get together because we’re having a baby is messy whether you’re straight or gay. This isn’t romantic it’s a cringe worthy storyline. Drama, bringing couples together since the dawn of time

Dark Aria- where have you been all these seasons? I wish they had peppered the seasons with this shady stuff !

Spencer- Spencer Hastings fucked up bad at that bar. I had forgotten about her signature on that credit card of Rollins and I forgot about her sarcastic confession to marco about burying a body the night she met him

I agree with a lot of you that the Spencer we saw with Wren seemed off. That was a teaser of a Wren scene. I want to buy into the Spencer has a twin theory I really do because double the Troian on-screen would be amazing. The direction in this episode speaks volumes about what she has learned in her years as an actress.

it just seems too easy. A secret twin.

I just think this story has shifted its focus from the original pilot a lot and I think it’s a misdirect with the Spencer stuff. I still hope Alison is A. Before people start saying of Ali has been great and real and emotional..I think it’s entirely possible and more likely that it’s been Alison all along who has the twin. We are seeing a different Alison than the one we were introduced to in flashbacks. Maybe it will turn out to be Bethany. For a full circle story Alison arc has to be more than this. A psycho implants her with Emily’s fertilized eggs and I are no glimpses of old strong Alison. She’s a completely different person.

The Spencer reveal seems too early. It feels like a red herring but who knows. I’ve seen theories that are convincing for a Spencer Twin. Face time A sounds like Paige. The voice , the manner of speaking, tone, everything. Paige is a helper like Sidney. Lucas will be another helper.

Caleb and Toby are bros again? Mona is a genius. Why have they not involved her more? Does Hanna trust her? Should we ? This is why janel parish is a great actress

Ezra…ugh. Ian Harding knows how to play a narcissistic loathsome creep really well. Aria..marriage should be the last thing on your Ezria agenda

Pokémon in our Biomes pt. 14: Wetlands

“I’ve recently decided to make a series of posts with hypotheticalthinking and analyzing of what Pokémon species could potentially be found in the world’s biomes. Not at all relative to the games, I will be focusing primarily of the elements, design, and relativity to real life flora and fauna of Pokémon to depict where different species would roam on our big blue marble.” 

Let me take one quick second to thank you all for the love and support as I have finally reached 400 followers! It makes me so amazingly proud and happy to know that people enjoy my work, and I have made some really cool friends thanks to these posts. You guys are the best! <3

In regards to water oriented biomes we’ve already covered a few. However, there are still many aquatic biomes to address and discuss. Our “big blue marble” is blue because of water, and with such a diversity of species found in all underwater environments, it makes sense that there is a lot to go over in relation to which Pokémon live in which aquatic environments, and with water types being the most common type of Pokémon, it makes it a bit easier to filter out all of the possibilities.

For the fourteenth Pokémon in our Biomes post, we will be focusing on another aquatic biome; wetlands

Wetlands are areas where water covers the soil, or is present either at or near the surface of the soil all year or for varying periods of time during the year. Supporting both aquatic and terrestrial species, wetlands are divided into four major categories: marshes, which support emergent soft-stemmed plants adapted to saturated soil conditions like grasses, swamps, which are wetlands dominated by woody plants, bogs, which are characterized spongy peat deposits and acidic water, and fens, which are a lot like bogs, but receive their main source of nutrients from drainage in the soil or through underwater movement. I was going to focus only on marshes and swamps, but all of the wetlands are so similar I figured why not just do them all together? Also, I mentioned before here that there are still a number of aquatic biomes I need to focus on, so you may see some Pokémon repeated, which I apologize for. However, I promise that if any Pokémon are repeated, they will be focused on from a different perspective.

I am especially excited to work on this post, as I have many fond memories of going to the swamp by my old house when I was a kid and catching all kinds of critters. The diversity in these biomes truly is amazing. In Canada, there is about 1.5 million square kilometers of wetlands, which is about a quarter of all the world’s wetlands.

Let’s get started!

SGDrummer7: What are your least favorite current Hollywood trends?

Christian: Casting Oscar Isaac.

Oscar: What a dick.

castielsaverin:  oscar, you once said that poe has a lot of love to give. can you end my suffering and tell me what you mean by that

Christian: Is it a big scene between you and Chewbacca?

Oscar: It means what it means. He’s got a lot of love to give to the galaxy, the end.

LiteraryBoner: hey its me the galaxy

yeblod: Finn?

ursasmajors:  it’s so cute that poe calls finn “the galaxy”

allwinter:  Hi Oscar, big fan. Where do you think the latino community is heading in the film industry and what are your thoughts on typecasting?

Oscar: I think there’s real progress that’s happening, I think people are being much more vocal about inclusion and about wanting their stories to be told and recognizing that latinos in particular are a very diverse community, and it’s great to see amazing latino directors having so much success too. People like Alfonso Cuaron, and I’m just hopeful we can keep finding great latino filmmakers and producers, actors, that are willing to do very different kind of work.

Christian: We’re going to get so much better films if that happens and in the same way look at the Trump administration, it’s all fat white men in suits, right? Hopefully it will galvanize us and revolutionize so we get more diversity in politics, and as much as diversity as we can in film and that’s only going to make films so much more fascinating.

Oscar: Clearly, Christian is a better Latino than I am

yavin_4:  For both of you: is there any other part of history that hasn’t been told before you’d want to see on film? Why?

Oscar: Great name, Yavin. That was actually Guatemala where they shot Yavin?

Yes, it’s been done on film a few times, but I am very curious about seeing more stories about the conquest of the Americas by the Spanish and the indigenous population. I think there’s amazing stories to be told there and also, it’s a genocide that occurred that is little talked about or little acknowledged.

Christian: Absolutely a genocide and very much leading into the story we’re making right now. The total lack of consequence for the Armenian genocide giving freedom for the people who think they can get away with the genocides that we’ve witnessed in the last 100 years, including Guatemala.

babeonicplague:  Oscar, why do you eat Hot Cheetos with chopsticks ???? It’s so extra….

Oscar: So I don’t get the cheesy powder on my fingers because it stains clothes and things like that and because I’m a sophisticated gentleman.

Master-Madman:  Are you guys dissapointed you didn’t get to romance each other in The Promise? I know a lot of gals are.

Christian: Yeah, of course, who wouldn’t be?

ImAquaTard:  Oscar, You always seem to change your hair for roles or for yourself personally. If you had to stick to one hair style for the rest of your life what would it be?

Oscar: Thank you u/ImAquaTard I like having a shaved head because it’s less fussy. 

jedifucker:  but Oscar your beautiful curls


gayspacepilot:  Hi Oscar, can you please describe Finn and Poe’s relationship in The Last Jedi in three (3) words. Thank you!

PapaBradford: 1). Your 2). Username’s 3). Accurate

The whole thing

Pyra, from Xenoblade Chronicles 2! 

Despite needing a few tweaks, I actually really like her original design! I think its cute, especially the scarf things. But, I think it would look better if it were more of a jumpsuit to match Rex, so i changed it up a bit.

Like most, I’m really not pleased with them hiring a hentai artist who just recycled the designs of the female characters (Pyra included) from previous works to do character design. The outfits I actually don’t think are too bad, but its a real shame at least 2 of the characters are almost copies from other works. That said, I like how bright and fun the anime style is, and though I’d change a few things I still mostly like the way the characters look. I’m disappointed that people are already hating on the game for a few poor design choices, especially when everything else in the game looks great. So many positives but all I see are the few negatives, and the game isn’t even out.  Plus, that soundtrack is amazing!

Ladynoir July Day 14 - Accident

Alya done screwed up. She means well though.

(Ao3 Link)

It was all an accident, at least that’s what Alya claimed. Still, as Ladybug stared down at her distressed partner, she couldn’t help but put most of the blame on the intrepid reporter.

The mess in question had started a couple days before, when Alya, for the first time, had managed to keep up with Chat Noir as he escaped the scene. She noticed him drop into an alleyway and, wanting to get an interview, followed him in.

Getting exclusive footage of their resident cat themed superhero turning into the famous young model Adrien Agreste should have made the reporter ecstatic. All she could think of, however, was how much this was going to devastate Marinette. Chat Noir liked Ladybug after all.

After promising to keep his secret a secret, she walked home. She felt a bit despondent. She wanted to be happy at finding out who Chat Noir was, but her love for her best friend was making a feeling of dread pool deep in her chest. She really didn’t want to see her friend hurt.

Feeling determined not to allow that to happen, Alya quickly came up with her best plan yet. A plan that would most definitely not backfire in any way.

Fast forward a couple days, an akuma, and one Adrien getting revealed to Ladybug due to a muss up when posting a video. Alya had just quietly apologized to the two heroes. She even took all the blame off Chat, saying that she was the one at fault for his reveal.

Adrien, as Chat Noir, sat off to the side looking guilty and upset. Not a look Ladybug had ever wanted to see on his face. Especially not Adrien’s and definitely not Chat Noir’s either.

“I’m sorry.” He said softly, not looking up. “I know how much you-”


He flinched. “Yes, My-Ladybug?”

Alya looked like she wanted to intervene, most likely to shift the blame again, but Ladybug silenced her with a glance.

“Your identity is your own, Chat. I wish you had informed me that Alya knew, so I could make sure she didn’t tell anyone, but other than that I think you did your best.”

He finally looked at her, it looked like he had been crying. “You’re not angry?”

Her face twitched. “I am angry.”

He deflated. “I-I see…”

Ladybug shook her head. “Not at you.” She nodded at Alya, “At her.” And then mumbled so quietly that they couldn’t hear. “And at me.”

The other two blinked at her. “You’re angry at me/her?” They asked, glancing at each other in surprise and in Alya’s case, relief.

Ladybug nodded and then walked over to Chat and offered him a hand. “Alya, give us a moment.”

The girl nodded and quickly backed away, far enough that she couldn’t hear what they were saying.

Chat took her hand and she pulled him to his feet. “Thanks.” He said softly.

She smiled at him. “It’s no problem Chat.” She then looked nervous. “I’d… like to reveal myself to you… if that’s okay?” Her voice got smaller as she spoke.

“Y-you don’t have to. I messed up and-” He looked guilty as he spoke.

“You didn’t mess up Kitten.” She frowned. “Alya shouldn’t have followed you. I thought we could trust her not to do that… and besides, I want our partnership to be equal. That means I can’t be the only one hiding something. Alright?” She asked softly.

He sighed. “Alright.”

She grinned nervously. “Well, um. You’ve met me before so…”

He eyes widened in surprise. “Really? When?” his tail twitched side to side in excitement.

She giggled at him. “I kind of told you to protect me while I was on a secret mission.” She admitted, blushing slightly at the memory. “And also you’re kind of my classmate so…”

His tail stopped moving and he looked at her in shock. “Marinette?!” He whispered loudly.

She smiled somewhat hesitantly, hands clasped together in front of her. “…Is it that much of a shock?”

He rapidly nodded his head. “How are you not more surprised?”

Her smile lost its hesitance and she beamed at him. “I was too angry at Alya. Honestly, I feel guilty I couldn’t stop her from revealing you. She’s my best friend after all.”

He shook his head in amazement. “I can’t believe that we not only know each other in real life, but that we’re already friends.” He beamed, happier than she’d seen him in a long time. “Sorry My Lady, I’m just so glad you’re you.”

At his words Ladybug went completely red. “T-thanks!” She squeaked. Not the stuttering again!

“Um, what do you think of me being Adrien?” Optimism shined in his eyes and showed in how he continued to smile, causing her blush to linger.

“I love you, I mean it! I mean I love that you’re Adrien! Like, I like that you’re Adrien.” She groaned and slapped a hand to her forehead.

He looked at her in wonder. “I like you too.” He said softly.

The two spent the next minute doing their best to not stare at the other, failing miserably every couple seconds. The dimming light of the sun seemed to make Chat realize something. He quickly took out his baton and grimaced at the time.

“Um, My Lady I…”

She put a finger to his lip to silence him and then moved her hand so that it was held out in front of her in a fist. She raised her eyebrow.

Smiling, Chat pressed his fist against hers. “Pound it!” They shouted, the familiarity confirming there was no lingering problems between them.

As she watched him go Ladybug grinned. “Couldn’t have been a better person to be my partner.” She murmured happily.

Her mood quickly soured as she remembered one of the main causes of this nonconsensual reveal.

She glanced at Alya and sighed. It had all worked out for the best, so she wasn’t that angry anymore. Still, she had to make sure her friend didn’t reveal Chat to anyone else and that she didn’t suspect Marinette.

If nothing else this whole episode had reminded her of why she hadn’t told Alya about her secret identity in the first place. Maybe one day in the future when she felt she could trust her again she would tell her. Until then she would make sure Alya kept Adrien’s secret.

She took a deep breath and walked over towards her friend and despite the conversation she was about to have she couldn’t help but smile. Her two favorite people had merged into one even more wonderful person and she couldn’t have been happier.

Happy birthday~! I love your work and ahhhhh you are so pERFECT I JUST WOW. Like you are seriously amazing! Umm if it's okay can I have some jealous!Oikawa headcanons? I really loved the ones you made before. Like only of you're not too busy and you want to. Any Oikawa is great though! I really love your work that you for being so wonderful~!

//The happy birthday just goes to show that I am lazy and a horrible person.

Jealous! Oikawa headcanons:

  • Literally the saltiest and pettiest loser ever. At first his partner would think it’s cute, but it gets really frustrating – fast. “Are they better looking at me tho?” “But for real I bet you (person) can’t be as awesome as I am”. Very much becomes very insecure.
  • Despite explaining the situation, he will be low-key salty. He will respect his partner and obviously trust them to handle it, but he would let them know if he is uncomfortable.
  • Would be sickeningly sweet to the person he’s jealous of, so much so it seems like he’s befriending them… Only to bitch about them later to friends.
  • Secretly change his partner’s lock screen to a picture of him under the guise of him being wacky, but mainly just to remind others that he’s there. Watching. Judging.
  • If a situation occurs that his partner is being full on hit on, he will calmly explain that they’re a loser and that they should stop. He tried. “You suck for real, bye”
  • Pouting becomes a usual expression.

Possible scenario: He’s been jealous of (A) for a while, (Name) has explained that they’re just friends and trying to work on a project together. He will respect (Name) and do all of the above. One day he finds (A) is trying to flirt with (Name) who remains oblivious, Oikawa would be so steely and calm walking up to (A) before lifting (Name) off bridal style to a private room, then would sexually mark his territory and leave love bites in visible parts. Making sure to leave his partner nothing but thoughts about him and making it clear that (A) has no chance in hell. He would then discuss to (Name) that it’s time for them to set their foot down and tell them to “go to hell”. But for real he would make clear that it’s no longer just him being jealous and insecure, that it was going to genuinely hurt him if nothing was going to be done. All in all, slightly mature of him but at the same time, dorky.
