That moment when you’re watching Durarara! and you realize Izaya Orihara is Lelouch Lamperouge from Code Geass, who is Ichigo Kurosaki in Bleach, who is Nero from DMC4, who is is Vash the Stampede in Trigun, who is a fucking Power Ranger.  Jesus Christ, were you in Sailor Moon and Death Note too, Johnny Bosch?  ’Cause you’re kind of way to prevalent in my life.

I was thinking about Izaya and it hit me how powerless he actually is. He may use knowledge to his benefit, manipulating people to move as he wants, but there’s always an element of unpredictability in doing so. When it comes down to it, he’s alone. He would be powerless against a mob. Words can’t carry him away from that.

That’s also what draws him to Mikado, in my opinion. Mikado doesn’t orchestrate fancy schemes, but he’s not unfamiliar with the possible weight of what he says, especially in the scheme of the Dollars. He has power. He has countless people who can be moved as he wants as long as he presents his desires in the proper way. Mikado wouldn’t be helpless against a mob in Ikebukuro. He is the mob.

Izaya can see that, so he’s so interested in where Mikado will head next, what he will become. If Mikado falls into the underworld in just the right way, he will feel no remorse or hesitation in his pursuit of unconventionality. If they combine the planning and understanding that Izaya possesses with Mikado’s influence, they’ll create something formidable. If. The glaringly obvious potential is quite seductive, really.

With IzaMika I'm always bouncing back and fourth from this cute relationship springing from Izaya constantly bugging Mikado and throwing his arm over him while smirking evilly at Kida who is constantly getting annoyed at this 'human scum' touching his bff. Then to Izaya and Mikado BECOMING CRIME OVERLORDS OVER IKEBUKURO AND TURNING EVERY PERSON AND STREETCORNER INTO THEIR OWN PERSONAL PLAYGROUND

I LIKE TO MIX THESE TWO TOGETHER. I think there’s lots of playful teasing and then lots of sudden Holy Shit moments where you remember what they (especially Mikado) are capable of.

Kine to Izaya: “You’re a man who can destroy things that are important to you easily. That young boy named Ryuugamine too.” I think I died.
