There’s the saying “If you think I look bad, you should’ve seen the other guy.” The other guy(s) this time were nothing more than fleshy pulps shoved under a sewage grate with mouthfuls of that drug. Stuffed down their gullet as far as 76 could force them.
The sirens outside reminded him to take a break; “Lay low for a while, *please*” Gabriel stressed, face mixed with pain, disappointment and worry. “You’re wasting away. This isn’t the Jack I loved, what happened to him?” 76 took a long draw, eyes trailing the droplets racing down the window, flicking blue, pink, white. “Wanting nothing more to end the bastards that took you from me.” He exhaled, the pain in his chest a constant reminder he still couldn’t rest. “I’ll slaughter them all, I won’t rest until every last one is dead.”
Another siren whipped past, 76 smirking at the irony that they kept missing their target, quickly lost seeing Gabriel across the room, face painted blue, white red…red…..red.
“I’m close to finishing it Gabe, I swear.” “You said that last time, Jack, you can’t keep doing this.” He said pitifully as he turned and left the room.
Another siren passed, slowly to be covered by the rain hailing the glass. 76 sniffed loudly.
Blood clotted the back of his throat. Salt stung the wound from his eye.
”They were gunning the motorcycles. There were these little backfires. There was one noise like that. I thought it was a backfire. Then next I saw Connally grabbing his arms and saying “no, no, no, no, no,” with his fist beating. Then Jack turned and I turned. All I remember was a blue-gray building up ahead. Then Jack turned back so neatly, his last expression was so neat… you know that wonderful expression he had when they’d ask him a question about one of the ten million pieces they have in a rocket, just before he’d answer. He looked puzzled, then he slumped forward. He was holding out his hand … I could see a piece of his skull coming off. It was flesh-colored, not white — he was holding out his hand … I can see this perfectly clean piece detaching itself from his head. Then he slumped in my lap, his blood and his brains were in my lap … Then Clint Hill [the Secret Service agent], he loved us, he made my life so easy, he was the first man in the car … We all lay down in the car … And I kept saying, Jack, Jack, Jack, and someone was yelling “he’s dead, he’s dead.” All the ride to the hospital I kept bending over him, saying “Jack, Jack, can you hear me? I love you, Jack.”
—Jackie Kennedy recalls November 22, 1963 in the “Camelot” interview with Theodore H. White for Life Magazine, November 29, 1963.
“History!… Everybody kept saying to me to put a cold towel around my head and wipe the blood off… later, I saw myself in the mirror; my whole face spattered with blood and hair… I wiped it off with Kleenex… History! … I thought, no one really wants me there…. Do you know what I think of history? … For a while I thought history was something that bitter old men wrote. But Jack loved history so history made Jack what he was … this lonely, little sick boy … scarlet fever … this little boy sick so much of the time, reading in bed, reading history … reading the Knights of the Round Table … and he just liked that last song. Then I thought, for Jack history was full of heroes. And if it made him this way, if it made him see the heroes, maybe other children will see too. ”

And it was just a really beautiful story from what we had so far, and we’ve already fallen in love with Baron (you know you have! don’t deny it!) and the combat system is pretty neat, and the visuals remind me of One Shot (which i also loved ho my lord)
I freaking love Jack’s little slightly higher pitched voice when ding the voice of “Button Boy” it so suits him and it makes him TONNES cuter. Couldn’t help but laugh when he was going off topic talking about killing someone i just love it :D
If anyone has that little clip (I’m sure it’ll be on here sooner or later) then I’ll reblog it so much!!!
Newsies for the fandom ask! (Of course it had to be done)
But of course!! Haha

So today is Jack’s birthday as I’m sure all of you know and I just wanna say how happy he makes me even just through the screen. Something about Jack is different. I don’t know if I’m the only one that feels that way but he’s the only one that can make me grin until my cheeks hurt and bring tears to my eyes, all without acknowledging me. If there’s one thing I’m thankful for, it’s YouTube for allowing me and all of us to find people like J and feel that warm, bubbly feeling when he pops up on screen. Happy birthday Jack, we love you.
