but first, some music

High Rollers and Sore Losers -- Final Fantasy XV vs the Casino Headcanons

Since I’m a scrub who doesn’t want to sleep yet (even if it’s 2 AM), LET’S DO SOME QUICK HEADCANONS IN HONOR OF MY MINI-VACATION! C: *finger guns*
We’ll fudge it a bit and say that Prompto and Noctis are a year older than they are. Because US laws. c:


Noctis Lucis Caelum –

  • The passive and almost reluctant companion on the trip.
  • He doesn’t really care much about actually gambling, but he’s most excited for the comfortable beds.
  • Will order and request 15 pillows.
  • Yes, he does plan on trying to sleep with them all. The poor soul sleeping next to him will just have to try not getting smothered.
  • ‘We can get room service, right?’ He looks at Ignis with eager eyes.
  • The only machine he’ll ever gamble on are the ones that have pretty graphics.
  • He always wins. Even when he doesn’t know what he’s doing.
  • Prompto forces Noctis to stay because Noctis is his good luck charm.
  • Doesn’t order liquor and doesn’t stay long because the cigarette smell bothers him.
  • He’d rather go back to the room and play video games and sleep.

Prompto Argentum – 

  • ‘Hell yeah! When can we go to the buffet?!’
  • He destroys the buffet lines, eating everything and anything in sight.
  • Ignis is mortified watching Prompto start on his fourth plate, but he’s happy the boy eats.
  • Flirts with the waitress to get to-go cups and boxes to hide food in the room for later.
  • Sorry, Iggy. Unlimited cookies are too good to pass-up.
  • Likes the weird people you run into. Especially in the sketchier parts of the casino.
  • Cute and charming enough for all the little grandmas to adore him.
  • They want him and his cute friend to be their good luck – even if Prompto has no goddamn clue how any of these games work.
  • He takes lots of pictures with them though. Noctis is uncomfortable.
  • Probably one of the youngest looking there, so he gets carded. Alot.

Ignis Scientia – 

  • The scariest card shark in the world.
  • So much so that people at the card tables learned to fear Ignis and his insane card counting and intense look.
  • They try to catch Ignis cheating, but they never can because Ignis doesn’t cheat.
  • Ignis leaves with gil in the bank and all the bitches.
  • He feels awkward whenever it happens, so he avoids them if possible.
  • Or has Gladio distract them as he plays instead.
  • Takes his winnings and goes to lounge by the pool alot.
  • He’ll wear those short swim briefs, show off those thighs, and get all the bitches again.
  • Again, he’ll feel uncomfortable at cover up while Gladio distracts again.
  • Going to a casino is the first time Ignis is able to relax in months. He enjoys himself for sure.

Gladiolus Amicitia –

  • People are scared shitless around him in case he busts them for cheating.
  • No, people. He’s not apart of the security team.
  • Really knows how to liven up the party at the roulette and craps tables.
  • Even if his luck sometimes is terrible, ladies still love him.
  • Usually sticks with Ignis because Ignis knows how to win. And Gladio likes winning.
  • Tries to take ‘company’ back with him to the room. Pillow fort Noctis refuses to let them invade his fortress.
  • ‘Hope there’s a spa here.’ There is. He’s all up on that and getting the massage he deserves.
  • And reading a book in the giant tub regardless of what the others say.
  • Discovers there’s unlimited drinks so long as you play.
  • He wastes the most money in the world and comes back a wasted and broke(n) man.

Ravus Nox Fleuret – 

  • Almost as good as Ignis is at poker.
  • Almost. His eyes give him away, so people always know when he’s bluffing.
  • Who needs to bluff though when you know you’re going to win?
  • Will have super good luck in bursts, then lose it all within the next five minutes.
  • ‘Is that all you’re playing?’ In which Ravus glares and replies, ‘I shall play as much as I desire to!’
  • And then he feels challenged and has to play more.
  • Thinks that the buffet is a place for savages. Has to go to the fine-dining restaurant.
  • Has alot of guys flirting with him and offering to buy him drinks.
  • He sort of stares, but Ardyn takes the drinks for him. Because hey! Free things!
  • Will stay up playing until he makes back everything he lost. He always makes it back. Probably through intimidating the machine.

Ardyn Izunia – 

  • The grandpa that all the grandmas adore.
  • And the grandpa that cheats blatantly enough that the boys know, but the casino can’t catch him.
  • Always on casino security in case he tries to rob them.
  • Or steal trinkets from the casino gift shop.
  • A walking embodiment of sin – drinking, smoking, fraternizing and more.
  • ‘I am disgusted,’ everyone states.
  • Ardyn does his things nevertheless.
  • Only ever plays the classic slot machines. The other machines are too new for him.
  • ‘I appreciate the older classics.’ *cough cough Hipster cough*
  • Is found sleeping next to a trash can, hungover with a bag of poker chips in his hands.

Lunafreya Nox Fleuret –

  • Acts like a princess who is naive and innocent when she enters the high-stakes poker tables.
  • She then proceeds to make grown men cry and leave without any of their clothes or dignity.
  • Doesn’t drink or smoke, but she indulges on their tears.
  • ‘Teehee~’
  • Usually donates her winnings to charity afterwards, bless her soul~
  • Only really goes to the casino to make sure her brother doesn’t lose another arm and a leg when playing.
  • And just in case Ardyn tries to get Ravus wasted and into bed again.
  • Probably the only one willing enough to be the designated driver.
  • Tries not to scream because the room coffee tastes awful and she really needs some sort of coffee or tea in the morning.
  • Keeps the room so cold that you’re on the verge of getting hypothermia.

Cindy Aurum – 

  • Literally does nothing but lean against the bar to get a water, and guys are all up on her.
  • ‘Can’t a girl just roll ‘em in peace?!’
  • Gets grumpy when she’s not allowed to gamble.
  • Mostly interested in how the machine works, hoping to take one apart one day.
  • Wicked lucky on slots, to the point where it’s scary.
  • Just as enthusiastic about the buffet and all you can eat as Prompto is.
  • If not more.
  • Will reach for your bread rolls and take it from you as she asks ‘You gonna eat that?’
  • Noctis cannot reply, for Cindy has already devoured it.
  • Eats the ice cubes from the ice machines like they’re candy.

Aranea Highwind – 

  • Never uses her own money to play.
  • Why pay when others will pay for you? She ends up flirting and hanging with some guy who’s dumb enough to fall for her charm.
  • Gets money by the end of the night and ultimately ‘wins’ that way.
  • Too impatient to remain loyal to a machine (or person), so she’s always wandering about.
  • Would rather go shopping at the gift shop and get something worth keeping.
  • Doesn’t help that Biggs and Wedge regulate her spending.
  • Like, alot.
  • Especially because Aranea’s the worst spender out of all of them.
  • Is seen sun-tanning by the pool or working out when not hustling people.
  • Girl’s gonna make every minute or her vacation last, goddamnit!

Cor Leonis – 

  • Is he even alive? Nobody’s seen him leave his hotel room since he arrived.
  • He spends all day watching TV and taking old man naps.
  • Comes out only to go to the bar for awhile and bet on some sports games or horse races.
  • Shittiest luck in the world.
  • Makes Gladio usually pick what team to bet on. Gladiolus has worse luck that Cor though.
  • Thus, he goes back to his room because he’s broke and grumpy.
  • That, and this little blond kid (who Cor assumes is too young to even be there) keeps watching to challenge Cor to Blackjack.
  • To the death!
  • Cor refuses, even if he used to be a blackjack king in the past.
  • Not like you can even do blackjack to the death, kid…

GUARDIANS OF THE WHILLS Chapter 12 vs. Chapter 13

MY CHILDREN ARE BACK

anonymous asked:

Is it bad that I just... can't accept a lot of the Team Cap side of issue because it's so... blind to the race issues? Like I'm not white, and whenever I read Team Cap Meta, it just can't... separate the white privilege from a lot of the statements that I've seen. I think it's a common issue as a lot of my fellow foreign fans felt a massive divide with the movie as well.

Full disclosure that I am white and American, before I continue. 

I don’t think it’s bad at all. I think it’s something to be discussed certainly. I’ve heard from other foreign fans that Cap’s position seems imperialistic and I can certainly see where they are coming from and even agree on some points. 

Going into a foreign country - and as the Accords seem to want to stop, against their wishes - and then declaring that your reasons to do so and to keep doing so are the safest hands are your own is something can easily be read as ‘I know what’s best for you’ and that was used in the past by white colonialists to justify their invading and occupying foreign countries. I don’t think the writers intended this impression at all, I just think they perhaps didn’t think through was they were really saying thoroughly enough and then they never clarified what was happening. If the Avengers didn’t have permission to be in Nigeria and didn’t coordinate with anyone, if Lagos was the result of the Avengers not having a limits, then they would be incredibly worrisome. The bad guy was stopped, but innocents died, and by what little the movie gives us, the Avengers are silent on that.

(While I disagree with Steve’s statement, I don’t think that’s what he meant. I think it was tied into what he said about shifting the blame, but that point was already muddled when he told Wanda that sometimes people die and they just have to go on. Factually true, but the people that died still died, so its not surprising someone will want answers.)

The minute the movie implied the Avengers don’t have liaisons or chain of command beyond ‘Steve and Nat are the boss’ (and we leave the rest to Tony, maybe?), the minute the movie said 117 countries though, I knew it wasn’t fully appreciating it’s own scale. Some of those countries were likely small, using this to get their voices heard, and maybe some of those leaders were corrupt, but others were probably genuinely worried about the Avengers posing a threat and them not being able to handle it until they were already gone. 

There’s more to the Accords of course, things that restrict the Avengers or are maybe even there to punish them, we really don’t know. The movie doesn’t tell us beyond whatever Ross says in his first visit. But there has got to be a middle ground there between Steve’s the safest hands are our own and Tony’s we need to be checked. This is not a ‘No, you move’ situation. And then you mix in Bucky and the whole thing becomes about him and…boom, ideological plot lost.

I feel like I’m not fully answering your ask because I don’t have the perspective you do, and I apologize, but no, I don’t think it’s bad, especially if it makes you feel uncomfortable the way it does. If anyone else wants to pick up on this, or if you want to send me more, anon, I’d be happy to listen.
