Clean Me, Daddy | 30.03.17
  • Phil: "Why aren't you cleaning us?" said Candice. Oh...
  • Dan: Excuse me?
  • Phil: Last time I did a live show, I accidentally ordered 300 cleaning wipes.
  • Dan: I know. I've seen them.
  • Phil: So, you can have the honour of cleaning them.
  • Dan: Excuse me?
  • Phil: The webcam. It's a bit grubby, so you know give them a clean. Give them a wipe. Someone just said "clean me, daddy".
  • Dan holds the cleaning wipe with regret. Phil burst out laughing and Dan starts speaking in a high pitched voice.
  • Dan: Yeah, I read that too. What is this?
  • Phil: It wasn't this weird when I did it!
  • Dan: There's a section of your live show where...
  • Phil: No, it's not a section!
  • Dan: ... you clean them?
  • Phil: No, I'm just saying we're slightly blurry and they'd like to see us in 1080pHD quality.
  • Dan: No, you planned this. It's a section where you clean the audience. Now everyone is saying "clean me".
  • Phil: They liked it. Just do it! I'll make the sound effect.
  • Dan: There's dozen of tens of thousands of people saying "clean me" right now.
  • Phil: Dan, clean them. Clean them!
  • Dan: Jesus Christ.
  • Phil: Do it! It's what you signed up to do.
  • Dan suppressing a regretful chuckle, Phil grinning so damn wide.
  • Dan: Oh my God, stop! The chat! Frick. Even the YouTube comments are going to be ruined. Oh, whatever you fricking..
  • Dan wipes the webcam while Phil makes the sound effect.
  • Phil: That's the noise of the cleaning wipe. Look how clear we are now though. My pores are here.
  • Dan: And yet, I feel dirty.

I recently posted a drawing of Khadgar and said “this is what I see when I read The Last Guardian”, well this is what I see when I read “Tides of Darkness”.

I like it when he smiles.

anonymous asked:

Mahiru said that desires from love such as lust and sexual desires can corrupt a person to not care about the world right? That reminded me of ch. 55 when the first thing Yuu said about not caring about the world was that as long as he can save Mika he'd sell out the whole world. I'm sorry to bother you with my interpretation on this, I was just something I thought of when I first read what Mahiru said. I know it's kinda a stretch and probably doesn't mean anything but I liked the thought.

“Benjamin felt a nose nuzzling at his shoulder. He looked round. It was Clover. Her old eyes looked dimmer than ever. Without saying anything she tugged gently at his mane and led him round to the end of the big barn, where the Seven Commandments were written. For a minute or two they stood gazing at the tarred wall with its white lettering.

‘My sight is failing,’ she said finally. 'Even when I was young I could not have read what was written there. But it appears to me that that wall looks different. Are the Seven Commandments the same as they used to be, Benjamin?’

For once Benjamin consented to break his rule, and he read out to her what was written on the wall. There was nothing there now except a single Commandment. It ran: ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL BUT SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS.”

-George Orwell, Animal Farm

Imagine : Being Hope Mikaelson’s Twin and Kol blames the Family for constantly ignoring you (part 2)

Young! Reader x Uncle!Kol

It had been a week since the incident with the Kidnapping . So far every one is slightly shaken up that something like that can happen to their dear hope. Or well every one would if Kol would forget about the person who was actually tortured like everyone else did to  Y/N .

She hadn’t really spoken much since the incident . But her screams in the night , showed her true emotions .

But it seemed like tonight was not one of those nights thankfully. Kol didn’t know how much longer he could stay calm , her leg was healing nicely.  Well nicely enough when your ankle is fraktured

The originals tried to give her blood but every time she would pretend to drink it or just not enough to heal her completly.

But she was healing as her family tended to Hope’s crying. Kol watches at (y/n( , whom gasps as her sister nearly falls on the steps but doesn’t move from her seat . “Hello darling How are you ,” he says walking up to her. “I am fine uncle Kol , how are you ?” He could tell she was trying to be happy but her smile didn’t reach her eyes or heart.

“Come on love you can’t be sad forever . I am sure your parents were al–”

“Already taking care of Hope and tending her needs . Its fine Uncle Kol , they were just to busy doing other things . they couldn’t focus on me and Hope. I am just glad You we’re there for me when I needed you ” she then gave Kol a hug making him smile for the little girls sake , but he knew deep down its was going to take more than a hug to comfort the young child . 

“ hey get dressed Aunty Davina wanted to give you a check up ” he says, making a smile whip onto the small girls face as she goes to prepare with her  crutches in hand to support her body.

“So do you intend to steal away my daughter every time something happens to her ,” scowled Klaus.

“I told you already Niklaus . it isn’t stealing if she want to Come with me . It’s not like.your trying you job when it comes to taking care.  Of her .” kol says. “I am taking her to the cauldron to see Davina wanted to check on her leg . ” he continues.

“Do you intend to take her to some outsider , when Freya is hear with more magic and  knowledge,” he says, as his anger rises.“Thou Davina isn’t as powerful Freya. She is more around and loving to her” 

  ” Is that so brother then tell me who is the person that helps wrap (Y/n( bandages when  Hayley isn’t around , or when Y/n needs help reaching her courtches.“

"Y/n wouldn’t even need crouthes if you even batted an eye at the girl. You fear they will both push you away when they grow up. But they have nothing to push away if you don’t care for the both of them ,” Kol says walking up to Klaus . Both of them were so angry they didn’t notice that Y/n walking into the room.

“ If its such a problem that I go out with Uncle Kol then I won’t go. No need to fight over anyone . ” she said then makes her way back to her room leaving the two grown men alone .


“Oh its you,” she said walking into the room . “Must be  horrible being a human . You know only to live ,survive only to be killed ” she says.

“What do you want Hope” Y/n says holding on to her sketch book. “What can’t I just come and check on my twin” she Scowls at the word . 

“I mean after all I need to be a bigger person here,"she pushes off Y/n’s crutches from the bed and snatches her sketch book from  her .

"Hey what the fuck,” Y/n said as Hope sits down and Klaus comes to the room.  Klaus gasps at Y/n words.

“So you expect to go out with Kol ,with that kind of language ,” he yells walking up the the human child as tears brim Hope’s eyes .

 "You and I are going to talk about this ,“ he said walking away with the fake crying Hope from the room . Y/n glares at her twins walking form and sighs knowing that they won’t believe her story .


I take a deep breath trying to calm my nerves but nothing is working.  "Little brat” I say noticing that my sketches were all torn out .  I place the now empty sketch book on the bed side table . 

I was about to try and pick up my crutches when Uncle Elijah and Klaus walks into the room and locks the  door.  "Y/n please tell me what your father heard you say isn’t true ?“  Uncle Elijah asks. 

Uncle Elijah was always there for me when Uncle Kol wasn’t around or in this families case awake or alive. I could tell he wanted to give me the benefit of the doubt but he knew I would be lying to him .

"Hello Y/n I believe your Uncle asked you ”

“Yes Uncle Elijah I did curse at Hope ,” I said cutting off ‘my father ’ if I can even call him that . He is more like the sperm donor who didn’t leave the baby mama.  Yeah that’s it.

“And what was this reason you attacked your sister,”

“Its not an attack all I said was 'what the fuck’ is exactly like say ’ what the heck’,” I say staring dead at them.

“Are you sure that is all you said ,” said Klaus

“Are you sure you have sensitive hearing cause you sure don’t act like it ,” I cross my arms , making Klaus huff in anger . “Y/n you are not allowed to go read or practice magic . When you go to school . You go and come right back . Nor are you allowed to meet Davina at all or go to Marcellus ,”

I felt like my was heart being stabbed repeatedly . “ wha- are – Fine ,” I say knowing that arguing with the two of them is useless. Everything I loved to do and take it.  

Yet if it was Hope they would let her off with a warning . I release a sigh as they walk out the room with not another word . Yes I know what I did was wrong –

My thoughts were interupted when I notice Uncle Kol walk into the room . “Hi Uncle Coco ,” I say as he picks up my crutches from the ground and leans them on my bed side tables. “I heard what happened ,”

“Not like you wouldn’t someone would off told you eventually,” I say , my sounded sad and defeated but its not like my voice should be for from it cause of everything .

“It wasn’t such a nice thing you said to Hope . ” he sits down onto my bed . I look down to my F/c bed sheets   . “If you heard what she said you would think what I said would be angelic ,” I say leaning on my head board .

“And what would that be darling ,”

“She said my purpose in life is to grow only to killed only to be killed .”  the feeling of wanting to cry engulfed me . My own sister wanted me dead . and doesn’t even think off me as a person. 

“My sisters thinks I am made to die . Maybe those people who has kidnapped me should of killed me , or better yet  ” I didn’t notice tears were coming out my eyes until Uncle Kol pulled me into his arms. Thou I am with him I feel alone .

 * Maybe I should kill me self* I thought as he rubs my back. *But  I can let Uncle Kol know my plan * I thought hugging him back. “ Are you OK little bird ” he said putting his chin on my head. I wipe my tears and snuggle into his chest . “Yeah I am fine ” I said knowing I won’t be able to bother anyone any more .

anonymous asked:

Literally Jasper's dialogue in Alone At Sea solidified the fact that she's the victim for me. I read what she said as what I say when I'm trying to get my abuser to go easy on me "I've changed, I'm better, I'm sorry " etc and what Lapis said is exactly what my fucking past abuser said to my friend about me "I LIKED hurting her, I needed to, it made me feel strong" and its so fucking legitimately triggering to see Lapis portrayed as the victim because my abuser tried to convince me that I was bad

That scene always bothers me because you KNOW what the writers were trying to do. Portray Jasper as the dishonest abuser who’s just trying to manipulate and Lapis as the victim who misses her abuser and admits she did bad things to Jasper as well. What could’ve been a really good and well done dynamic (like the scene alone was perfectly serviceable albeit some generic dialogue) falls short because of previous portrayals in the series.

Jasper held no power over Lapis. She could not emotionally manipulate her nor could she physically overpower her. Lapis states outright she plans to keep Jasper as her prisoner and you see visuals of Jasper literally screaming in terror when Lapis pulls her back down. Lapis then states in Same Old World “after what I did to Jasper” fully acknowledging that she was the one in full control (and don’t give me that “she’s just blaming herself” nonsense because she admits to it again in Alone At Sea).

So when Jasper returned to Lapis, I did honestly see it as a victim begging someone who mentally and physically abused them to return to them. Lapis missed Jasper because she enjoyed hurting her and yet this is STILL portrayed like Lapis was the victim in all of this. Rather than make amends with hurting Jasper she instead launches her to space when she has just as much power to just use water to capture and overwhelm her.

This was supposed to portray an abusive relationship (somehow) but it was just a display of Lapis’s anger and bitterness acting out and hurting someone deeply while also receiving no punishment for it. It’s terrible terrible writing that, well, makes her the abuser in all of this.

I really didn’t wanna argue this bc it’s such a touchy subject but really, it’s so evidence now it’s hard to ignore. Jasper deserves better

things my classics teacher has said

he teaches the odyssey and he really loves it, even though most of my class don’t, and he says some of the strangest things when we are reading it aloud:

  • this next line is so dramatic i think im going to have to stand up for this bit
  • well you all have ruined it im sitting down again
  • “..and mr s stands with them too, and it looks awesome”
  • (laughing to himself) oh what idiots these men are!
  • me: why does it have female pronouns? isn’t it just a hole?
    mr s: yes, but its a female hole. (silence) oh I’m so sorry. please lets move on and forget i ever said that (our class is exclusively female)
  • no, not one cow with a machine gun against a hundred men. that would be pretty awesome though
  • i’m going to stop talking about nipples now
  • this is where she just decks him
  • he’s a really old boy
  • it just makes you sick doesn’t it
  • what do you mean you don’t like odysseus get out
  • you know i’m going to stand up for him. i love him.
  • mr s: don’t forget to update your divine intervention log. your d.i.g. if you will.
    a student: sir, that would be d.i.l.
    mr s: … well, i feel foolish
  • don’t worry it won’t take me long to bounce back
  • a student: i just can’t like odysseus
    mr s: (mortified noise) 
  • when I was younger I wanted to be a pirate… I still do to be honest

19.07.2015 || So recently I’ve been asked a lot about my colour coding system, in response to flavaflavs question I thought  I’d share it with you all! 


A have a pack of STABILO Boss Original Highlighter Pens (Pack of 8), and I’ve labelled each one to mean something: 

  • Argument (Dark Pink)
  • Issue (Light Pink)
  • Historiography (This is the arguments other historians have made)(Pink)
  • Statistic (Orange)
  • Quote (Yellow)
  • Figure (as in a person) (Green)
  • Structure (Dark Green)
  • Date (Blue)

This is the system I use when going through my reading/essays to make it clear whats what, and I then incorporate this into my revision sheets/flashcards when I do them for exams


I write all my classwork (where I engage with a lecturer/tutor) down in separate notebooks for different topics. I write my general notes for the set reading on a plain pukka pad jotta.

As part of my revision and organisation, I then rewrite all of the messy notes up neatly, using pukka pad “Comfort in Colour” Collection. I then write different types of information down on different colours:

  • Blue - Tutorial/Class Notes
  • Green - Lecture Notes
  • Purple- Essay Feedback


As I can’t highlight in all of the books I use, I tend to use post-it notes when I’m doing reading for my essays, and these mini(ish) post-its are good for that, as I can write little bits of information from the text, whilst still having them where I got the information from. This allows me to note where I got the information from and forces me to condense the amount of notes I take from a single page.

Orange: “My Thoughts”: Any ideas about the essay/ thoughts about what is being said that I consider whilst reading

Pink: “Argument”: Anything that makes it clear what the author is arguing/supports their argument

Blue: “Quotes”: Any quotes, either referring to another text or that I will take from the reading

Green: “Dates/Stats”: Any dates or statistics that can be used for my understanding of the period/I can use in my essay


The first time I make notes I don’t do much colour coding, other than writing quotes and key bits of information in a different colour, using a different colour for each book I’m making notes on for that essay (I typically read and make notes for 7 books per essay). This makes it easier to find the information I need AND if in my essay writing frenzy I mix up my notes, the colure help me sort them back into order before I file them.

Bare in mind that I’m doing a BA in History, so they are very history orientated, but this system would work well with other essay based/reading subjects :)

As excited as I am by the announcements, I'm feeling kind of disheartened by your blog. It seems like for quite some time you've been hyping the Vanilla Mythic, discounting going back to Dominaria, and saying UN3 wasn't in the works. I feel like we've crossed the line between you keeping things back for future hype and you actively misleading us. It's not fun to read your answers if I always have to wonder "Is MaRo being serious or lying so he can surprise us?"

I never lie on this blog. Every answer I give is always true. That said, I don’t give away that things you want we’re actually doing.

For example, when people asked for Un-3, I never said we weren’t doing it, I said how much I wanted to do it or what things had to happen for it to get green-lit.

For Dominaria, I talked about the problems of returning.

All of that was true. Yes, I implied they weren’t being done, but either I do that or I never talk about future products on the blog. Gauging from what questions I get asked, I don’t believe that’s what most readers would want me to do.


J-Hope x Reader

Genre: Do I write anything that isn’t smut? The answer is no.

Summary: Look up from your books once in a while. A good dick down might be on the other side.

Word count: 4,267

A/N: I’m appalled at the lack of Hoseok smut so I thought I’d polish this piece I had about him and post that. Enjoy! Feel free to request stuff as well.

You glanced at the silver and pink watch on your wrist as you typed continuously onto your laptop. You sighed deeply as you pressed enter to switch line. This essay was taking so long to write and you could feel all your focus slip away, tiredness taking over in heavy presses on your eyelids. You met eyes with your charming boyfriend on the other side of the table. He smiled at you sweetly before looking back down at his papers. Unlike you, he was enjoying himself, writing lyrics and listening to some music on his laptop, calmly sipping a warm cup of tea. You glanced to your left and reached for your nth cup of coffee promptly sitting atop a messy pile of books. You tilted it. Empty. A sigh made its way between your dry lips and soon enough your cold hands found their way back onto your keyboard, resting lifeless on the keys.

You were so focused on getting this paper done that you didn’t notice Hoseok getting up to make you another warm drink. His presence lurked tall behind your back as his left arm entered your peripherals, putting a black mug down on the table, making sure to push away all your scattered papers. He grabbed your other mug under your soft stare. You lazily reached for the new drink and brought it up to your mouth.

“Thank you Hobi.” you murmured.

He put the other mug in the sink before standing behind you again, his gentle hands on your shoulders, massaging the sore muscles. You took a long awaited sip. Hm… Chocolate?

“Hobiii… that’s hot chocolate.” you whined cutely.

Perfect (Zach Dempsey X Reader)

Request: Hi! Can you do a Zach Dempsey x chubby!reader where reader an Zach are in same class and reader have a crush on Zach but is to shy and low self-esteem and they end up doing a project together and things get fluffy?

~*(Y/N)’s Pov*~
‭‭I walked into Biology class, set my things down, and sat myself down. After the bell rang and class began my teacher started talking.

“So class as you all know, today we will be starting our evolution project. For the project you will need to…” and I stopped paying attention after that.

After a while the bell rang and I was ready to exit the class when I felt a hand grab my wrist stopping me. I turn around to see none other than a recent friend mine the one and only Zach Dempsey.

“Where do you think you’re going” he said smiling. I gave him a confused look. “Yo we have to plan our project.” He added and I kept that same confused expression. He sighed “Mrs. Homes made us partners.” He explained.

“Oh really?” I asked and he nodded. “We can talk about it later, like at Monet’s or something.” I suggested

“Sounds good. Meet me there right after school.” He smiled and walked off.

I arrived at Monet’s and made my way to the table Zach was sitting at with two hot chocolates. “You know, you should start paying attention to class.” He said

“Yeah I will I just have a lot of things on my mind lately.” I reply

“Like what?” Zach curiously asks.

“Oh nothing important” I say avoiding answering his question. The truth is I recently had a crush on Zach, he would never feel the same way about me though. I mean look at me.

Hours passed by and we barely got any work done because we kept messing around and making lame jokes. Skye then came up to us and began talking.

“Im sorry but if you finished your drinks and aren’t gonna order anything else, im afraid you can’t just stay here.” She said

“Aww come one Skye, you’re kicking us out?” I said and faked a pout

“Sorry (Y/N), not my rules” she chuckled, and with that Zach and I decided to finish up at his house.

As we pulled up to his driveway, I realized there weren’t any cars there meaning his parents weren’t home which was a relief. His mom is very nice but she scares me sometimes.

Zach opened the door with his key and closed it after we both walked in and we headed to his room. We spent a couple hours just hanging out and then decided to start doing work.

“You can think of ideas for this project while I order pizza.” He said. I didn’t do much thinking about the project instead I was looking at Zach. ‘He looks cute even when he’s just talking on the phone’ I thought to myself.

“Okay so what do you think we should do for the project?” He asked once he finished ordering pizza and sat next to me on his bed.

“I don’t even know what the project is about. Did she pass out a paper saying the requirements or..?” I trailed off waiting for an answer.

“Yeah its right here let me just find it.” He said looking through his school bag “AH! Its right here” he handed it to me “I thought I fucking lost it.”

I giggled and began reading over the paper but this time Zach was the one looking at me. He was just staring. I looked back at him and asked “what?” thinking there was something wrong.

“Nothing, you’re just really cute when you try to concentrate.” He said with a smile causing me to blush which he of course noticed. “Awww and when you’re flustered.” He added.

At this point I was feeling really nervous and didn’t know what to do. “U-uh thank you?” I said back making it sound more like a question. He turned his whole body facing me and I turned to look at him.

“You know (Y/N) you’re really fucking beautiful” he said and I shook my head.

“What do you mean? Do you not think so?” He asked while reaching up to my cheek and I shook my head again.

“Well you’re wrong.” He started “I’ve always liked you (Y/N). I always thought you were perfect.”

“Why?” I simply asked

“Why the fuck wouldn’t I?” He calmly said. In the 2 weeks I’ve known Zach, I have never seen him so calm. He’s always making jokes, fucking around, and being loud but now he was nice, serious, and sweet. I can’t say that I don’t like it.

“But I’m so fucking…” I trailed off trying to think of the right word to use.

“You are fucking amazing (Y/N) and I don’t know how you don’t see it. I don’t know how you don’t feel the same” he said looking deep into my eyes. At this point I was speechless, I had no idea what to reply. We both just stayed quiet but then he spoke up.

“Fuck, did I just complicate things?” He asked when he saw how nervous I was acting.

“No Zach” I giggled to him and he smiled “Things couldn’t be better” I said.

“Great” he said smiling while checking the time on his phone only to see that it was getting late.
“Fuck we gotta hurry up and do this thing now.”

“Yeah we really should.” I replied grinning.

i’m just saying that i love him more than i should and it makes me queasy but it makes me happy like one of those carnival rides you tried when you were seven and whenever you think about you get this weird sad punch of nostalgia about spinning lights and a warm night where everything actually felt good. i’m just saying that a lot of people have said they love me and i’ve said the same but it wasn’t until he drove three hours out of his way just to bring me chicken noodle soup that i realized love is less about the words and more about the actions of three a.m. when you’re both drunk and honest. what i’m saying is that love looks different from the inside. like i had no idea how to read and he showed up with an entire story.

anonymous asked:

Is there any proof that the meat, dairy and egg industries fund our medical and health studies and pay to push these false agendas and information? My mum doesn't believe me when I say this and it's the most frustrating thing in the Fucking world. Is it even true? I'm stumped at what to say when she says "these people do 6 year courses, they know what they're talking about".

The meat industry tried to sue Oprah for $10 million just because she said “I will never eat another burger again” on live TV.

They go after anyone that defames them, anyone that says a bad word, hence why so many people like the creator of “conspiracy” was scared for his life after making that documentary.

If you read a study that favours meat or diary you just have to look at who funded it, at the bottom it has to say.

Doctors take a 6 year course, but no more then 19 hours of that course is dedicated to nutrition. Their degree is to learn mainly about medications, how to diagnosis and what medications to prescribe. They are not taught about diet and how to heal with food. They are more then not taught they are not ALLOWED to only prescribe dietary changes, medication must be involved. I have many friends studying medicine and this is how they explain it to me.

Thankfully there are a lot of doctors out their that are researching themselves about diet and making a real difference. It’s not the doctors fault it’s the systems and what they are taught.

Sabine and her family

So @teammarinette was telling me this headcanon he has about Sabine and typed this and asked me to post it. He is Chinese too so it really gives an interesting insight. Personally, I really find this headcanon fitting and well thought. What do you guys think? Any opinions?

So you know how the Kung Food episode starts off with Marinette trying to translate stuff into Chinese so she can greet her uncle and then trying to memorise and pronounce those sentences. She then talks to Tikki about how she’s worried about her uncle visiting her house, and when he does arrive Marinette opens door, forgets everything, and ends up making a fool of herself. Her uncle ignores her and proceeds to purge her flowers, and then she ends up sitting on the sofa across from her uncle while she’s not speaking and trying to pretend her uncle isn’t there but her uncle doesn’t really care and happily proceeds to finish demolishing her flowers.

It’s a very short scene, really; less than two minutes of screen time but already this is a lot of content that we’re shown and a massive amount of stuff to work on.

Assuming/As soon as you've read Ch. 93: What is your take on Reiner and Marcel's relationship? In Ch 92&93 Marcel is mentioned A LOT. Reiner's flashback replaces Gabi with Marcel, and then he swears to protect her... also, Reiner specifically agrees that yes, he is imitating Marcel... it's just too much to be a coincidence. Bertholt never gets any mention in comparison (except for in a group but his name is never said)! Could you do an analysis on who Marcel is/was to Reiner?

For starters, when I first read Yonkou’s raws, I was surprised to see Marcel had such an influence on Reiner. 

Back until then we knew nothing about him, except he saved Reiner from harm when he and Bertolt were far ahead from him. His death apparently scarred him deep enough to the point of dissociating and imitating him.

Above: Reiner saving Connie. Below: Marcel saving Reiner - Ch. 39

This chapter brought us the explanation why he acted that way and Galliard even adds that’s the kind of person Marcel was. A kind-hearted, reliable big brother who puts others before himself.

I disagree with the “a lot” mentioned. Marcel occupied a small portion of the chapter and in Reiner’s dreams and flashbacks, it was either the group as a whole or Bertolt getting snatched. Marcel was also there to introduce his brother Galliard, whose relationship with Reiner turned sore because his brother died on the way.

About the group picture, it’s simply a projection of a similar scene that happened into Reiner’s mind, with different actors. I don’t think Reiner has any particular preferences with the kids, but he certainly hats the idea of cursing a girl who loves him so much. None of the kids mirror each other:

  • Marcel was a selfless reliable big brother, Gabi is chirpy and insufferable and believes she’s born to be the true savior of the Eldian minority
  • Udo is an overdramatic rude ass and Zofia’s snarkbuddy. Bertolt is soft, meek and polite.
  • Annie doesn’t seem to be anybody’s buddy but stays her usual self where she follows the group while staying detached.
  • If anything, Falco and Galliard mirror each other, since Galliard looks like he’s the opposite of Marcel, personality-wise. A grumpy boy who’s been shafted by everybody on his group since he didn’t get a titan power back then.
  • Neither Pieck or Zeke were on the picture. I’m curious as to how they’re integrated to Reiner’s group.

I think Marcel was for Reiner the same thing Frieda was for Historia, in the sense where Frieda wanted Historia to become more like and Marcel inspired Reiner to be a “real man”.

“You should grow up to be like her. The world is full of painful and difficult things. That’s why you need to become someone that everyone loves. Someone who helps others and is helped by others.“ - Ch. 54

The parallel here is both the girl in the book (revamped Ymir Fritz) and Marcel were versions of the perfect man and woman, appreciated by everyone. The difference is Marcel being human while DracoInLeatherPants!Ymir is a character from a fairy tale. The difference between Marcel and the rest of the group was him still having his brother alongside him before they went to Paradis.

As I still suspect, Reiner is an orphan, since the only memories he was traumatized by were his comrades leaving him behind. Since he was imitating Marcel, it indicates he lacked social landmarks, probably the one who’s always far behind the group. Even of Paradis, before Marcel’s death, the sequence of flashbacks more or less proves it: Reiner’s surprised to be attacked by Ymir’s titan, got pushed by Marcel from the side before lying on the ground. Bertolt rushes to see what happened and by the time Marcel got eaten, Bertolt was the first one to flee, followed by Reiner.

The whole sequence of events - Ch. 39, 40 & 47

And on this sequence I noticed again something interesting.

Reiner reaching for Bertolt or his companions - Ch. 93 & 40

Looks like “Wait” and reaching for someone are Reiner’s keywords. @josie-theoneandonly pointed Reiner did the same when he was about to lose his head and when Mikasa blew him away from his titan.  Yeah I’m sensing a pattern here. Being afraid of abandonment. I guess that’s why he was so insistent to rescue Annie. 

Also, kid!Reiner and the Reiner we know now look very different. His younger-self was wearing a scarf just like Eren did in his youth, before it was given to Mikasa. When he joined the trainees he didn’t have it anymore. Did he discard it once they’ve invaded the walls? Given to somebody? Used it for Marcel’s tombstone? 

Bertolt didn’t get any mention in this chapter, but the hints Reiner misses him are still present: him having nightmares of Bertolt being snatched from his titan 4 years after the Battle of Shiganshina is the biggest one. We’re talking about two boys who shared the same couch and the same tent after all.

Besides there’s still room to suspect Reiner hasn’t shaved because he’s been neglecting himself. Looks like he’s been like that since Bertolt is no longer at his side.

Also he never saw Bertolt die in front of his eyes. He reported his fate wasn’t confirmed. He’s probably clinging to the weak hope he’s still alive somehow, even if he has to realize he’s not coming back because he was probably executed. If Reiner had to witness what really happened in chapter 84, his mind would broke.

As a kid, Reiner was also wearing a sweater. To my knowledge, the only person fond of these is Bertolt, and in this flashback, he was just wearing a jacket. At some point the two of them must have bonded since even during their time as soldiers, Bertolt doesn’t leave Reiner’s side. He’s also the one turning back in the panel where he reached for his companions and the one who smiled at him when Reiner was imitating Marcel.

Big Bro Reiner - Ch. 93

Compare his reaction to Annie who’s being her usual self. Bertolt was genuinely happy for Reiner. He’s also the only one who knows how emotionally vulnerable he can be in the face of death, hence the concerned stare in chapter 77:

Bertolt’s concerned stares - Ch. 77

Wouldn’t be surprising if the two of them were revealed to depend so much of each other. Bertolt is kinda sensitive to the suffering of people. He can’t stand seeing other people completely helpless and desperate. I was suspecting in a previous post it was actually Bertolt who was afraid of abandonment, but it looks like it’s quite the opposite.

Let’s wait for next chapter.
