Heroes in training  ノ*:・゚✧

Imagine: At some point, Taako becomes obsessed with mirrors. Not in a vain way, as people keep accusing him, but because he catches a glimpse of his face in the mirror out of the corner of his eye and it hurts and the hurt is gone and then he’s just looking at himself in the mirror, trying to figure out what just happened

It’s usually only a few minutes at a time, but those minutes add up until it’s hours per week and days per year just looking for something he can’t find.

He laughs off any comments, usually - “Have you seen my face, my dude? It’s perfect! Of course I like to look at it.”

It’s not just the possible return to his cooking show that makes him hesitate in Wonderland when he has to sacrifice his beauty.

After they beat Wonderland and settle down for the night, he pulls out the Pocket Spa again - and for the first time in a long time there’s no ghost in the mirror out of the corner of his eye.

(A day and a drink of ichor later, he finally remembers who he was trying to find in his own face.)

At midnight in the area near the Geology office where the lights never turn on correctly you will find her sitting patiently her ‘hair’ dripping and pooling on the floor. Her silver hair is not quite silver, most people theories that is actual quicksilver. It would not be surprising, they call her the Crystal Maiden for a reason. Her eyes are like polished Labradorite there is no pupil or white to them. Her lips are polished rose quarts and the hollow of her back is like a geode of amethyst not flowing or rotting wood. She has three horns of crystal that spike out of her head like parts of a crown though these colours change depending on variables that no one has been able to fully decipher.

Sweet words and music will not get you far with her. If you want her favour bring her beautiful crystals tumbled or raw. They say that she helps the Geology professor in exchange for his famous rock candy too. It is hard to tell if that is what she is actually eating some of the time since she has been known to eat raw crystals as well. Green fluorite crystals seems to be her favourite when it comes to these earthy snacks.

No one has ever reported being Taken by her and she is one of the most peaceful of the gentry on campus as long as you do not anger her. A feat that is hard to accomplish. She uses no glamour and allows people to see her directly.

She never speaks and people say that it is because her tongue, like so much of her, is made of crystal. Even her hoof like feet are like raw hematite. You can tell if you have won her favour or not based on her tails and crystal crown. If she wraps her long forked tail around your body that is a clear indication that you have won her favour. This can be dangerous as her tails tips are tipped with a quicksilver that changes rapidly from liquid to solid easily. Her tails also weave through three different hallways they are so long and you have to be careful not to step on them. She has been known to forgive those who do by accident. Her crown will always be blue in colour if she is fond of someone and red if she is angry.

No one knows what to make of the soft pink and purple tones her crown turns whenever the geology professor is nearby but everyone knows that if you are kind to one of them then they will both be kind to you.

There are three ways to make her angry

  1. Trying to touch her or any of her crystals without consent.
  2. Bringing iron or salt near her at all.
  3. Speaking of anything related to her and the professors relationship. She hates gossip.

Keep in mind that she tends to poison those who make her angry and won’t even bother to Take you to do so.

“Who will protect him when you’re gone? Who is strong enough to keep him from evil influences, keep him on the righteous path?” Sorry, just… excuse me. I’m having Dad!chester feelings. Don’t even tell me Sam Fucking Winchester wouldn’t make the most awesome dad. Sam “It’s your choice” Winchester is totally up to the challenge.

Penny is pretty scary to kids normally but in the Theater of Flesh she’s a way better alternative than the average resident.

Okay, here's something I was wondering. How much of Zero's hesitation to tell Granger about his sexuality based on realistic fear, or just fear that Zero has built up in his head? I feel like, that while Granger can be rigid and was tough on Zero at times, he's mellowed with time and while his expectations are still high, I can't see him reacting in a horrible way. I would think at this point he just wants him to be a good person.

It’s an equal amount of both tbh. Granger has loosened his tie since having Natalya but Zero doesn’t know Granger to be Daddy Panda. He isn’t in the house that much anymore so he doesn’t get to see the side of his father that we’re now aware of. 

Granger is a pretty young parent that suffered severe daddy issues himself so when Hitomi had Zero there was a huge disconnect there and it lasted well into Zero’s high school years. He was there for him financially and he made sure he always had a roof over his head and food in his stomach and occasionally they got along but there wasn’t much father-son bonding. Granger always saw Zero as his responsibility and not much else.. it sucks but part of that is because it was so out of his comfort zone and triggering to his own childhood with his father. At most he tried to make sure Zero wasn’t raised in the same type of environment he experienced but subconsciously he ended up picking up some of Alastair’s parental traits. 

For as long as he can remember Zero always had to walk on eggshells with Granger and he was never easy to talk to about anything that didn’t involve his education. Furthermore, Zero knows that his father is an ex-assassin so imagine if you have some crazy killer as a father with him all cut up the way he is.. it’s pretty intimidating to look him in the face. Like Zero probably doesn’t even recall a time where Granger has ever genuinely smiled.. like ever in his life okay. It’s that serious for him. 

I think Natalya has been good for Granger because she’s a rambunctious little squirt. She can get him to unwind and thus far has been super comfortable talking to him about pretty much anything that’s on her mind. That’s not to say that he doesn’t put his foot down with her but it takes a little more effort to brush her off or send her to her room. You’d think since she’s the girl it would be different but another part of why he’s so slack with Nat is because she’s her mother’s daughter. She’s pretty confident and also a half-breed so she picks up on things quicker and deep down inside Granger knows that she’s just cut from a different cloth. 

Granger telling Zero that he’s proud of him is probably like top 3 things Zero has ever wanted in his life.. like just for his father to acknowledge him as his son with a good head on his shoulders and give him some type of credit. I think Zero knew that his father cared about him but he wasn’t so certain that he actually loved him and what he told him over the phone was something he desperately needed to hear.
