The Great Gundam Wing Rewatch ‘14
Episode 06: PARTY NIGHT

Thrown into a new, uncertain destiny, Relena returns to the Earth. What awaits her is a school party and notice of Heero’s transfer. Knowing Heero’s secret, Relena figures out that the transfer is related to his next mission. OZ assassins come for Relena, and Heero ends up saving her.

This episode’s highlights:

  • That Relena-Mrs.Darlian moment. Relena says that whatever happens–whatever the truth may be–Mrs.Darlian will always be her real mother. (This scene is this mod’s first taste of a soap opera moment in an anime when she was, like, nine.)
  • Treize believes that VFM Darlian is exactly the type of person who is “sacrificed to a new era”. We love you Treize, but sometimes you make our skin crawl.
  • Relena goes to their school party. She invites Heero–who, ever the gentleman we always know, points a gun at her. But they go anyway and Relena tells him she has met Dr.J.
  • Meanwhile, Wufei, in Gundam Shenlong, is destroying the naval port. Sometimes we wonder what the boy does in his pastime.
  • In the circus, we find out Trowa is not afraid to lose his job. Or, you know, he just doesn’t care. When the Ringmaster scolds him for being late, Trowa responds, “I made it here. That’s good enough.” Catherine ushers him onto the stage for their act.
  • Also, Trowa is not afraid to die. Cath realizes he actually wants her to mess up her knife-throwing act and kill him. (This begs for one whole meta! Anyone?)
  • Back at the party, Heero and Relena are having a conversation on the dancefloor. Then Lady Une attacks, with the intention of eliminating Relena. Heero mistakenly thinks that the OZ is there for him, so he suits up and fights. Lady Une wonders if the Gundam is protecting Relena. 
  • …and it is. Heero himself doesn’t know why exactly he is protecting Relena. He is confused. “What in the heck am I thinking? I’d be better off if she died, wouldn’t I? What’s wrong with me?!” he yells, before destroying the last OZ mobile suit.
  • Just as when Lady Une decides she’ll go after Relena herself, Treize calls, telling her to stop the mission because he just decided to let Relena live. We find out that Lucrezia Noin has called Treize and told him the connection between Zechs and Relena. 
  • Back at the school, Relena is questioning Heero–she’s asking the same questions Heero is asking himself. Heero tries to kill her again, but realizes he. Just. Can’t. So he flies off, leaving Relena behind.

To be continued on: EPISODE 07: SCENARIO FOR BLOODSHED.
Previous episode: 1 2 3 4 5

This is where Anna and Kat live in the circus, one of sixty or so cars on the train. Katerina’s knife throwing act is much more famous than Anna’s fortune telling, so her face is painted on the side of the car. It’s not the lap of luxury, but it’s not too shabby either. (I wish I had so much space to myself on tour!) Next to her bed, we can see Anna’s homemade calculating device, which she uses to make predictions about the future with math and science instead of a crystal ball. More designs for this series.

Practice makes perfect

Starter for @tyrannicaltriangle :

Mabel paced back and forth in her room. Ideas. She needed fresh ideas for the next show the twins were doing, but she had none. There was her knife throwing act, but she needed a bit of practice on it since she hadn’t done it in a while. But that would require a part- “Oh William!” She exclaimed in almost a sing song voice as she left her bedroom and into the halls of the mansion. Where could that demon be?

But just think of circus!aus:

Dean working for Azazel, ringmaster of the show ‘Gehenna’ (it’s a devil of a good time!). Though Dean’s knife-throwing act fills seats, it’s nothing compared to the throngs of rubes they’re expecting to show up for Castiel: Fallen Angel of the Lord—as notorious as Lucifer! Of course, when Dean first hears that a winged man is joining their troupe, he’s less than impressed; this isn’t a freak show, after all.

Alastair working the menagerie, and wants nothing more than an Angel to star in his act; brushing Castiel’s wings like they’re made of gold, but shoving the winged man back into the cage he’d arrived in during every break. After all, you can’t trust the animals.

Cas being put on display whenever he’s not performing; fed through metal bars and cramped in the tight space of his cage but for the time he’s in the ring.

Dean ending up in the menagerie after a night of drinking, finding out that the freak with wings isn’t actually a freak after all. He’s a person, he’s intelligent, he has dreams and stories and wants of his own.

Dean and Cas falling in love. Dean playfully teasing Castiel’s feathers, letting the angel out in the dead of night to stretch his wings and cuddle. Cas counting Dean’s freckles and pressing kisses to the tip of his nose.

Dean speaking out against Castiel being kept as a thing. Dean trying to bust Cas out when Azazel brushes off his concerns. Dean putting his efforts on hold when Alastair hurts Castiel due to Dean’s efforts to help the angel escape.

Dean and Cas organizing a troupe-wide coup and slipping away during the chaos; running away from the circus.

Young Avengers Circus AU

But guys

 

Imagine how cool a Young Avengers Circus AU would be!

 

Like they’re a travelling circus company having adventures and performing wicked shows.  

 

Billy Kaplan is the Magician of the troop. His routine is (as described by Teddy) “dorky but cute”. Despite this, he does pull of some amazing tricks.  He’s a massive circus geek and likes to try out the tricks performed by his favourite magicians. The Scarlet Witch is his absolute favourite. He and Teddy share a caravan along with their massive comic book collection.

 

Teddy Altman is the make up artist. He dresses up in monster costumes that he’s made and scares people in the house of horrors. No one can believe that he makes the stuff himself. He’d like to be a sculptor one day but never has the time to do anything other than costumes for the show. It’s not uncommon for him to walk around in full monster make up when there isn’t a show on.

 

Kate Bishop is the archer. She can shoot anything. She sometimes ropes Tommy into her throwing knife act where she ties him to a spinning wheel and throws knives at him. After her archery display she lets kids have a shot with the bow (especially if they’re wearing purple). She received her training from the famous Clint Barton although it’s debatable if he was teaching her, or if she was teaching him.

 

Tommy Shepherd is the daredevil/acrobat. He’ll do pretty much anything you challenge him to, usually as fast as he can. His acrobatic routine with Noh-Varr is much loved and he always soaks up the cheers afterwards before Noh-Varr has to drag him out of the ring. Billy constantly worries that he’ll hurt himself doing something stupid. This just encourages him to do things even more dangerous.

 

Noh-Varr is the acrobat. He performs solo or with Tommy. Kate thinks he should become a contortionist with the way he can bend his back. No one’s sure what his real name is but everyone just calls him Noh for short. He always has a wicked mix tape to play when travelling.

 

Cassie Lang loves heights. She does the flying trapeze, silks and high wire as well as stilt walking on occasion. Whenever she’s not performing during a show she’ll be up in the rafters watching and cheering. She gets on well with everyone though she’s closest to Kate and Nathaniel.

 

Nathaniel Richards is the technician. He’s technically meant to operate the ferris wheel but he usually ends up fixing anything that gets broken whilst traveling; Kate’s laptop, Cassie’s camera, Tommy’s bike etc. More and more he’s been asked to operate the lights during the show. He constantly tries to think of ways to make them cooler. David helps at times. Cassie suspects that there’s something going on between them (which makes her slightly jealous).

 

David Alleyne is the genius. He has a small stand set up where people can ask him any question and he’ll know the answer to it. It’s not immensely popular but there is always a small crowd of science geeks and mathematicians around it asking him a million questions much to his delight. He’s eager to learn other stuff too and takes lessons from everyone in all their specialist areas.

 

Loki is the con artist. He has a variety of games that he’ll set up to scam people out of money. No one ever remembers inviting him to join. David suspects that Loki just started following them one day till people just accepted him as one of the gang. Mostly everyone turns a blind eye to his dealings but every so often America will make sure he isn’t stealing too much money. Normally with a good beating. He’s been teaching Billy a few tricks recently in the hopes to get Billy to help him out in some larger cons. Billy has accepted the training but been refusing to help.

 

America Chavez is the strong woman. She lifts weights, people and even cars sometimes to impress the crowd. Although she keeps up her stony appearance, she secretly loves performing and enjoys the company of the others. Except Loki. She thinks he’s a little creep. America is also the gangs security. If any audience members get a bit too rowdy or drunk she’ll sort them out no bother.

 

Eli Bradley is the ring leader. Despite his usually grumpiness once the show starts he’s warm and delightful. He works well to motivate the performers and always gets a few laughs from the audience, even if being funny isn’t his strongest asset. He was a strongman to begin with until America joined so now he’s the ring leader full time. He does, however, still practise weight lifting with America. They work in silence but both secretly love the time they spent together.

Finally! I’m done with the fifth chapter!

And for those of you that don’t know, I have a table of contents located here just so it’ll be easier for you guys. I know how frustrating it can be trying to find a specific chapter of something you’re reading to I update this each time I post a chapter. 

I feel so bad implying Stan’s been through terrible things. Like his trust issues and always seeing the worst in people and such… I’ll get over it.

Thank you all for the support and hopefully I can keep this interesting for y’all all the way to the end (whenever that may be).

One for the Money! Two for the show! Three to get ready! Four to go!


Of all the things for Stan to expect to wake up to, a knock on the door was the last of them. He pushes his body out of bed and suddenly he realizes what he’s done- to get up from a bed- and he’s very much awake now. He’s confused about why he’s not in his car somewhere starving when he remembers what happened the previous night.

“G-gimme a sec!” Stan calls while pulling on a pair of pants so that he won’t be too indecent for whoever’s knocking at his door. After he exits his room he nearly goes to the door in the living room, but there’s another knock on the door across from the bathroom. He looks out the peephole to see Rita- thank goodness he put on pants- and he opens the door. “Erm… yes, ma’am?”

“It’s tine to get up- breakfast is ready,” she says with her eyebrows shooting up at his attire. “I’ll give you ten minutes to freshen up.”

“Yes, ma’am, and thank you,” he says before closing the door.
