I actually really have a lot of thoughts about how young/youthful Harry looks in the Breakfast Show interview, and I want to share them but I can’t really think of how to express it properly beyond just saying, oh my goD LOOK AT HIM!!! A BABY LOOK AT MY BABY HE LOOKS SO YOUNG AND WELL RESTED AND HAPPY WOW I LOB HIM SO MUCH????? MY SON?. So, there you have it.
In South Kensington, lodged in between the neighbourhood houses, is a fenced community park that Eggsy only visits when it’s dark. The lock is so ridiculously easy to pick it might as well be made of butter. He sets JB on the grass and the damn dog just stands there looking at him. “Go on.” He urges, “I ain’t coming here for you to just sit around, yeah?” As if on cue, JB sits, gets back up, and for a moment he looks threateningly close to barking, but then he just totters off.
Eggsy takes a seat on the bench he knows JB will come back to once he’s done his thing, and stuffs his hands in his pockets.
From here, he can just glimpse the top of the roof, and for now, it’s all he can bear to look at. What to most is an empty house is to Eggsy filled to the brim. It screams Harry in ever crevice, in every breath taken there. It’s not his fault Harry’s a hoarding freak, with his paper clippings and his butterflies and all of his framed photographs that Eggsy believes aren’t even of anyone Harry knew.
That house, along with two single-sentence announcements in the paper, are the only things that can prove Harry ever even existed.
“You’re being sentimental again, aren’t you?” Eggsy’s immediate response is to hold up his balled fists, which, granted, looks a bit amusing since they are still in his jacket’s pockets. “I can’t believe you’re still repeatedly surprised at this when you know I’m going to show up.”
“That’s cause you’re always sneaking up on me.” Eggsy finally manages to reply. Harry’s smirk shows just how pleased he is with the situation, and Eggsy knows he had every intention of sneaking. He turns his focus back on the house, because sometimes, when he stares at Harry for a too long period of time, he looks too much like an illusion. Which is stupid, yeah.
Harry sits down next to him. “How was the mission?” Eggsy shrugs, “Nothing much. Arthur still won’t let me go alone because he’s afraid I’m gonna do something ‘reckless’.” He huffs bitterly. “You can’t exactly blame him.”
Eggsy scowls at Harry for that. Again, only briefly. “You came here to blame me then?” He can see Harry shaking his head from the corner of his eye. “You know why I’m here-” “Yeah, alright.” Harry picks up on the threat and anger in those two words and doesn’t continue. They don’t say anything for a while, and Eggsy begins to wonder just how big of a shit JB is laying.
Eventually, Harry’s hands swipe over the front of his trousers and he stands up. “I have to go.” He steps into Eggsy’s view, and seems to be waiting for some sort of reply, even though he has to know at this point he isn’t going to get one. Harry exhales heavily through his nose, grabs his umbrella and, right before he leaves, he says, “I’ll see you around.”
Eggsy wishes that wasn’t true. It isn’t healthy, he knows that. But as long as his memory can conjure this vivid of a fantasy, he’s going to keep doing it. He knows that too.
ive been seein a lot of style challenge things going around and it looked fun!! so here’s my take on it,, i just drew myself 9 times bc i couldnt think of a character to do. i chose a couple of the styles bc theyre like. formative to how i draw now? (fma & the vocaloid boxart) the rest were suggestions and ones i chose cause i thought theyd be fun
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (click for better quality :^/)
also go check out @tubular-todd‘s art bc its??? super good i dont think i did it justice tbh
Doc you've indicated that you accept parts of a character's canon that you like and ignore parts you don't like. How does that square with telling people it's wrong to write/draw characters the way they would prefer to, as long as the issue is deemed "important" enough?
I’m trying not to lose heart here, but come on. This ask is so disingenuous, and you know it.
You know there’s a difference between saying something like “resurrection without consequence isn’t a thing/she made choices of her own volition/this character’s age is screwed up” and removing someone’s disability. You know that. You are not stupid, and I am not going to treat you like you are.
I am not here to police you. I am here to encourage you to think critically about what you’re doing. Why is it so important to defend the right to remove someone’s canon disability? How does that serve the character or the canon? Why is ableism on that gets “important” when you might not feel that way about racism or homophobia? Please think about these questions critically and fairly.
Hey y’all just wanted to let you all know that the first chapter of VB will be posted this Wednesday, 26 April, between 11-3 PST!! Hope you’re all hyped! And have that Yurio i drew again just to keep the hype train rolling lmao;;
forreal though. I was listening to the radio in the car earlier today and I thought the song said ‘I think about itchy noses’ & my heart almost stopped like wtf but then I realised he probably said ‘I think about her and she knows it’
you know that trope in shows or movies where the evil character is in captivity and starts talking to the Heroes to try and mess with their minds, and starts analysing them going “face it you’ll never be good enough” … “you try to act tough but inside you’re broken” … and the Hero gets really rattled and upset.
well i want a scene like that where it doesn’t work
Villain: “You have a darkness inside of you. You try to hide it, but it’s there–”
Hero: “Yeah that’s the depression, there’s pills for that.”
Villain: “You try every day to make your mother proud. Even after death, it still haunts you. But she’ll never be proud of.”
Hero: “Well yeah, she was an emotionally abusive narcissist, she was never proud of anything I did, what else is new.”
Villain: “You put on a good show, but deep inside I know you don’t feel worthy.”
Hero: “I know, man, I’ve been trying to work on that in therapy.”
Like… give me characters who know they’re mentally ill and traumatised who can’t have it used against them because they’ve fully accepted it
