make no bones about it

your-imaginary-friend  asked:

UT Sans, UF Bros, US Papyrus, SF Papyrus and UF Grillby react to coming home and seeing someone trying to break in, scaring them away, then opening the door only to be hit in the face with a pillow that their S/O threw and them saying "Oops. Sorry. Thought you were the thief."

Ehhh sorry for this one being so short. I don’t think the skeles (and flame dude) would have that much a reaction. 



“heh, makes no bones about it” Sans laughs and just shrugs it off. 



Red laughs, grabs your pillow, and hits you back. 


Fell is not amused. On one hand, at least you’re prepared to attack an intruder if you need to, but a pillow? Really? 


What did you plan on doing with a pillow??? Did you think it was going to do anything?? He’s a bit cocky about it, warning you to be more careful next time and chose a better weapon. 



Heh. That’s cute. Like Classic, he just shrugs it off and calls the police to report the thief. 



Okay, Rus would normally be extremely concerned for your safety, especially if the burglar got so close, but you threw a pillow at his face??? A pillow??? Do you know how adorable you are??? He spends the whole night squishing you. Then proper defense tactics in the morning. 


Headcanon that Stoick felt this from 200 miles away. 

“Gobber. Something’s wrong. We need to leave for the Edge, NOW.”


from the “hey, you are my partner, okay? it’s a guy hug, take it” to the “i love you so much and i’m so worried about you that i just want to hug you to make sure you are okay”

Superman Starter Pack

First and most importantly, before we go into petty commercial concerns, let’s remember the meaning of this day. Because friends, this is no ordinary day: this is Miracle Monday, the anniversary of Superman triumphing over no less than the biblical prince of darkness himself (or at least a respectable substitute), and it was so awesome that even though it was expunged from humanity’s collective consciousness, they still instinctively recognized the third Monday of May as a day of good cheer to be celebrated in Superman’s honor from now until the end of time.

I know I write plenty about Superman on here, but with as much as a pain as comics can be to get into, I’m sure at least some of those I’m lucky enough to have follow me haven’t been able to find an easy in for the character. Or maybe a follower-of-a-follower or friend-of-a-friend is looking for a reasonable place to start. So in the spirit of the season, I’ll toss on the (admittedly already pretty massive) pile of recommended starting points on Superman: ten stories in a recommended - but by no means strict - order that should, as a whole, give you a pretty decent idea of what Superman’s deal is and why you should care, all of which you should be able to find pretty easily on Comixology or a local bookstore/comic book shop. I’ll probably do a companion to this in September for Batman Day.

1. Superman: Birthright

What it’s about: It’s his origin. He gets rocketed to Earth from the doomed planet Krypton, he gets raised by farmers, he puts on tights to fight crime, he meets Lois Lane and Lex Luthor, he deals with Kryptonite, all the standard-issue Superman business.

Why you should read it: It does all that stuff better than anyone else. He’s had a few different takes on his origins over the years due to a series of reboots, another of those tellings is even further down the list, but the first major modern one pretty much hit the nail on the head first try. It toes the tricky line of humanizing him without making you forget that hey, he’s Superman, it’s high-action fun without skimping on the character, and if there’s any one story that does the best job of conveying why you should look at an invincible man-god all but beyond sin or death with no major inciting incident in his background as a likable, relatable character, this is it. Add in some of the best Lane and Luthor material out there, and it’s a no-brainer.

Further recommendations if you liked it: About a decade before writing Birthright, its author Mark Waid worked with Alex Ross on what ended up one of DC’s biggest comics ever, Kingdom Come, the story of a brutal near-future of out-of-control superheroes that ultimately narrowed down to being about Superman above all else, and one of his most popular and influential stories of all time at that. Years after Birthright he created Irredeemable, the story of a Superman pastiche named Plutonian gone murderously rogue and how he reached his breaking point, illustrating a lot of what makes Superman special by way of contrast.

(Since Superman’s had so many notable homage/analogue/pastiche/rip-off/whatever-you-want-to-call-it characters compared to other superheroes, often in very good stories, there’ll be a number of those stories on this list.)

2. Superman: Up, Up and Away

What: Ever seen Superman Returns? That, but good. Clark Kent’s been living and loving a normal life as a reporter and husband after a cosmic dust-up in one of DC’s event comics took Superman off the board for a year, but mounting threats demand his return to save Metropolis again, if he still can.

Why: If you’d rather skip the origin, this is as a good a place as you’ll find to jump onboard. Clark and Lois both get some solid characterization, a number of classic villains have solid screentime, there’s some interesting Kryptonian mythology sticking its head in without being too intrusive, a great overarching threat to Metropolis, and it captures how Superman’s powers work in a visceral sense better than almost anything else. If you just want a classic, pick-it-up-and-go Fun Superman Story, this is where to go.

Recommendations: If you liked this, you’ll probably be inclined to enjoy the rest of co-writer Geoff Johns’ run on Action Comics, including most popularly Legion of Superheroes and Brainiac, both with artist Gary Frank. Another series tapping into that classic Superman feeling pretty well - regardless of whether you enjoyed the original show or not - is Smallville: Season 11, showing the adventures of that series’ young Clark Kent once he finally becomes Superman. Currently, Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason’s run on the main Superman title under the banner of DC Rebirth is maintaining that feeling itself, properly introducing Jon Kent, Lois and Clark’s 10-year-old-son, as Superboy in what seems to be a permanent addition to the cast and mythology (though there’s some continuity hiccups there, even as they’re mostly kept to the background - for the first 20 issues Superman is a refugee from a previous continuity, don’t ask).

3. Superman: Secret Identity

What: He’s Clark Kent, an aspiring writer from a farm town in Kansas. Problem is he’s only named after the other guy, an ordinary teenager who’s put up with crap his whole life for being named after a comic book character in an ordinary world. But when he suddenly finds himself far closer to his namesake than he ever would have imagined, it becomes the journey of his life to find how to really be a Superman.

Why: The best ‘realistic’ Superman story by a long shot, this doesn’t sideline its heart in favor of pseudo-science justifications for what he can do, or the sociopolitical impact of his existence. He has the powers, he wears the costume to save people (though he never directly reveals himself to the world), and in-between he lives his life and learns what it means to be a good man. It’s quiet and sweet and deeply human, and probably one of the two or three best Superman comics period.

Recommendations: Superman: American Alien is probably as close as there’s been to taking this kind of approach to the ‘real’ Superman, showing seemingly minor and unconnected snippets from his life, from childhood to his early days in the costume, and how they unconsciously shaped him into the man he becomes. If you like the low-key, pastoral aesthetic, you might enjoy Superman for All Seasons, or the current title Supergirl: Being Super. If you’d like more of writer Kurt Busiek’s work, his much-beloved series Astro City - focusing on a different perspective in the superhero-stuffed metropolis in every story - opens with A Dream of Flying, set from the point of view of the Superman-like Samaritan, telling of his quiet sorrow of never being to fly simply for its own sake in a world of dangers demanding his attention.

4. Of Thee I Sing

What: Gotham hitman Tommy Monaghan heads to the roof of Noonan’s bar for a smoke. Superman happens to be there at the time. They talk.

Why: A lot of people call this the best Superman story of the 90s, and they’re not wrong. Writer Garth Ennis doesn’t make any bones about hating the superhero genre in general (as evidenced by their treatment in the rest of Hitman), but he has a sincere soft spot for Superman as an ideal of what we - and specifically Americans - are supposed to be, and he pours it all out here in a story of what it means for Superman to fail, and why he remains Superman regardless. It sells the idea that an unrepentant killer - even one only targeting ‘bad guys’ like Tommy - would unabashedly consider Superman his hero, and that’s no small feat.

Recommendations: If you read Hitman #34 and love it but don’t intend to check out the rest of the series (why? It’s amazing), go ahead and read JLA/Hitman, a coda to the book showing the one time Tommy got caught up in the Justice League’s orbit, and what happens when Superman learns the truth about his profession, culminating in a scene that sums up What Superman Is All About better than maybe any other story. If you appreciated the idea of a classically decent Superman in an indecent world, you might enjoy Al Ewing’s novel Gods of Manhattan (the middle of a loose pulp adventure trilogy with El Sombra and Pax Omega, which I’ve discussed in the past), starring Doc Savage and Superman analogue Doc Thunder warring with a fascistic new vigilante in a far different New York City.

5. Superman: Camelot Falls

What: On top of a number of other threats hitting Superman from all sides, he receives a prophecy from the wizard Arion, warning of a devastating future when mankind is faced with its ultimate threat; a threat it will be too weak to overcome due to Superman’s protection over the years, but will still only just barely survive without him. Will he abandon humanity to a new age of darkness, or try and fight fate to save them knowing it could lead to their ultimate extinction?

Why: From the writer of Secret Identity and co-writer of Up, Up and Away!, this is probably the best crack at the often-attempted “Would having Superman be around actually be a good thing for humanity in the long term?” story. Beyond having the courtesy of wrapping that idea up in a really solid adventure rather than having everyone solemnly ruminate for the better part of a year, it comes at it from an angle that doesn’t feel like cheating either logically or in terms of the characters, and it’s an extremely underrated gem.

Recommendations: For the same idea tackled in a very different way, there’s the much better-known Superman: Red Son, showing the hero he would have become growing up in the Soviet Union rather than the United States; going after similar ideas is the heartfelt Superman: Peace on Earth. The rest of Kurt Busiek’s time on the main Superman title was great too, even if this stood easily as the centerpiece; his other trades were Back In Action, Redemption, The Third Kryptonian, and Shadows Linger. Speaking of underrated gems, Gail Simone’s run on Action Comics from around the same time with John Byrne was also great, collected in Strange Attractors. And since the story opens with an excellent one-shot centered around his marriage to Lois, I have to recommend From Krypton With Love if you can track it down in Superman 80-Page Giant #2, and Thom Zahler’s fun Lois-and-Clark style webcomic Love and Capes.

6. Superman Adventures

What: A spinoff of Superman: The Animated Series, this quietly chugged along throughout the latter half of the 90s as the best of the Superman books at the time.

Why: Much as stories defining his character and world are important, the bread and butter of Superman is just regular old fun comics, and there’s no better place to go than here for fans of any and all ages. Almost all of its 66 issues were at least pretty fun, but by far most notable were two runs in particular - Scott McCloud, the guy who would go on to literally write the book on the entire medium in Understanding Comics, handled the first year, and Mark Millar prior to his breakout success wrote a number of incredibly charming and sincere Superman stories here, including arguably the best Luthor story in How Much Can One Man Hate?, and a full comic on every page in 22 Stories In A Single Bound.

Recommendations: Superman has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to runs of just plain fun comics. For the youngest in your family, Superman Family Adventures might just be what you’re looking for. Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the Eighth Grade would fit on your shelf very well next to Superman Adventures. Superman: Secret Origin, while not the absolute best take on his early days, has some real charm and would be an ideal introduction for younger readers that won’t talk down to them in the slightest, and that you’ll probably like yourself (especially since it seems to be the ‘canon’ Superman origin again). If you’re interested in something retro, The Superman Chronicles cover his earliest stories from the 30s and 40s, and Showcase Presents: Superman collects many of his most classic adventures from the height of his popularity in the 50s and 60s. Age of the Sentry and Alan Moore’s Supreme would also work well. For slightly older kids (i.e. middle school), they might get a kick out of Mark Millar and Lenil Yu’s Superior, or What’s So Funny About Truth, Justice, and the American Way? And finally, for just plain fun Superman runs, I can’t ignore the last year of Joe Casey’s much-overlooked time on The Adventures of Superman.

7. Superman vs. Lex Luthor

What: Exactly what it says on the tin: a collection of 12 Luthor stories from his first appearance to the early 21st century.

Why: Well, he’s Superman’s biggest enemy, that’s why, and even on his own is one of the best villains of all time. Thankfully, this is an exceptionally well-curated collection of his greatest hits; pouring through this should give you more than a good idea of what makes him tick.

Recommendations: While he has a number of great showings in Superman-centric comics, his two biggest solo acts outside of this would be Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo’s Luthor (originally titled Lex Luthor: Man of Steel) and Paul Cornell’s run on Action Comics, where Lex took over the book for about a year. Also, one of Superman’s best writers, Elliot S! Maggin, contributed a few stories here - he’s best known for his brilliant Superman novels Last Son of Krypton and the aforementioned Miracle Monday, and he wrote a number of other great tales I picked some highlights from in another article.

8. Grant Morrison’s Action Comics

What: Spanning years, it begins in a different version of Superman’s early days, where an as-yet-flightless Clark Kent in a t-shirt and jeans challenged corrupt politicians, grappling with the public’s reaction to its first superhero even as his first true menace approaches from the stars. Showing his growth over time into the hero he becomes, he slowly realizes that his life has been subtly influenced by an unseen but all-powerful threat, one that in the climax will set Superman’s greatest enemies’ against him in a battle not just for his life, but for all of reality.

Why: The New 52 period for Superman was a controversial one at best, and I’d be the last to deny it went down ill-advised roads and made outright bone-stupid decisions. But I hope if nothing else this run is evaluated in the long run the way it deserves; while the first arc is framed as something of a Superman origin story, it becomes clear quickly that this is about his life as a whole, and his journey from a cocksure young champion of the oppressed in way over his head, to a self-questioning godling unsure of the limits of his responsibilities as his powers increase, and finally an assured, unstoppable Superman fighting on the grandest cosmic scale possible against the same old bullies. It gives him a true character arc without undermining his essential Superman-ness, and by the end it’s a contender for the title of the biggest Superman story of all.

Recommendations: Outside of this, Greg Pak’s runs on Action Comics and Batman/Superman, and Tom Taylor/Robson Rocha’s 3-issue Batman/Superman stint, as well as Scott Snyder, Jim Lee and Dustin Nguyen’s blockbuster mini Superman Unchained, are the best of the New 52 era. If you’re looking for more wild cosmic Superman adventure stories, Grant Morrison’s Superman Beyond is a beautiful two-part adventure (it ties in to his event comic Final Crisis but largely works standalone), and Joe Casey’s Mr. Majestic was a largely great set of often trippy cosmic-scale adventure comics with its Superman-esque lead. For something a little more gonzo, maybe try the hilariously bizarre Coming of the Supermen by Neal Adams. And while his role in it is relatively minor, if we’re talking cosmic Superman-related epics, Jack Kirby’s Fourth World has to be mentioned - it’ll soon be reissued in omnibus format to coincide with the Justice League movie, since many of its concepts made it in there.

9. Superman: Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?

What: More than just the title story, DC issued a collection of all three of Watchmen writer Alan Moore’s Superman stories: For The Man Who Has Everything, where Superman finds himself trapped in his idea of his ideal life while Batman, Wonder Woman and Robin are in deadly danger in the real world, Jungle Line, where a deliriously ill and seemingly terminal Superman finds help in the most unexpected place, and Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?, Moore’s version of the final Superman story.

Why: Dark Superman stories are a tricky tightrope to walk - go too far and you invalidate the core his world is built around - but Moore’s pretty dang good at his job. Whatever Happened you should wait to read until you’ve checked out some Superman stories from the 1960s first since it’s very much meant as a contrast to those, but For The Man Who Has Everything is an interesting look at Superman’s basic alienation (especially in regards to his characterization in that period of his publication history) with a gangbuster final fight, and Jungle Line is a phenomenal Superman horror story that uncovers some of his rawest, most deeply buried fears.

Recommendations: There are precious few other dark Superman stories that can be considered any real successes outside a few mentioned among other recommendations; the closest I can think of is Superman: For Tomorrow, which poses some interesting questions framed by gorgeous art, but has a reach tremendously exceeding its grasp. Among similar characters though, there are some real winners; Moore’s own time on Miracleman was one of the first and still one of the most effective looks at what it would mean for a Superman-like being to exist in the real world, and the seminal novel Superfolks, while in many ways of its time, was tremendously and deservedly influential on generations of creators. Moore had another crack at the end of a Superman-like figure in his Majestic one-shot, and the Change or Die arc of Warren Ellis’ run on Stormwatch (all of which is worth reading) presented a powerful, bittersweet look at a superman’s attempt at truly changing the world for the better.

10. All-Star Superman

What: Superman rescues the first manned mission to the sun, sabotaged by Lex Luthor. His powers have reached greater heights than ever from the solar overexposure, but it’s more than his cells can handle: he’s dying, and Lex has won at last. This is what Superman does with his last year of life.

Why: I put this at the bottom since it works better the more you like Superman, but if you’re only going to read one story on this list, this one has to be it. It’s one of the best superhero stories period, and it’s everything that’s wistful and playful and sad and magical and wonderful about Superman in one book.

Recommendations: If you’re interested in the other great “Death of Superman” story, skip the 90s book and go to co-creator Jerry Siegel and Curt Swan’s 60s ‘Imaginary Story’, also one of the best Superman stories ever, and particularly one of Luthor’s best showings. If you got a kick out of the utopian ‘Superman fixes everything’ feel of a lot of it, try The Amazing Story of Superman-Red and Superman-Blue! The current Supergirl title by Steve Orlando seems to be trying to operate on a pretty similar wavelength, and is definitely the best thing coming out of the Superman family of books right now. The recent Adventures of Superman anthology series has a number of creators try and do their own ‘definitive’ Superman stories, often to great results. And Avengers 34.1 starring Hyperion by Al Ewing and Dale Keown taps into All-Star’s sense of an elevated alien perspective paired with a deep well of humanity to different but still moving results.


Have we talked about this scene yet? Because I want to talk about this scene and why it’s important that this is the memory Steve is thinking about right before he has to face the Winter Soldier again.

We all know how out of place and unhappy Steve feels in modern society. The movie doesn’t make any bones about it. Even though good ol’ Cap exudes positivity, we see how he uses his time. When he’s not at work for SHIELD, he’s grasping at straws, trying to catch up, trying to make sense of how he fits in a world that’s moved on without him. When Steve starts to feel out of place even when he’s playing soldier for SHIELD, Sam tells him that he could do something different, anything at all; but Steve looks blank. Sam asks him what makes him happy, and Steve doesn’t know. 

The only thing that keeps him going is knowing that his sacrifice helped save the world. As he says to Peggy, he always wanted to do “what was right,” and at least he can take some comfort from the fact that he helped save countless lives from Hydra by losing everything that meant a damn to him.

That is, until he and Natasha find Zola in the underground bunker and they find out that Hydra is still alive and well – thriving, even – within the ranks of SHIELD. 

This is the moment Steve learns he gave up his life for nothing.  

So. The flashback scene.

I’ve heard some people say that they think the scene is extraneous. That it’s enough to know that Bucky and Steve were friends way back when, only Bucky doesn’t remember (and if you want more skinny!Steve and scenes of Bucky and Steve being chummy, go back and watch The First Avenger). On the surface, it may seem like this scene is rehashing old territory, but it’s actually telling us quite a bit more than that. 

Bucky is walking Steve home after his mother’s funeral, and Steve is obviously vulnerable and shaken. His parents were the foundational figures of his life, and they’re both gone now. Before Bucky can even get the question out, Steve rejects the idea of moving in with Bucky. He insists he can get by on his own. Then he fumbles clumsily in his jacket looking for his key, but he can’t find it. Bucky casually picks up the spare and hands it to him. 

This moment.

It’s such a simple gesture, but the camera focuses in on that key like it’s the freaking Tesseract. Why? Why is this moment with Bucky so prominent in Steve’s thoughts? Why not something out of their days together with the Howling Commandos? Or why not something from when they were kids running around on the playground? 

This moment is an echo of exactly what Steve’s feeling in the future: lost and alone. Everything that means home is shut behind the locked door of time (or a coffin lid).

But against all possibility, Bucky is alive. And, to Steve, Bucky doesn’t just have the key back home, he is the key back home.  

“I can get by on my own.”

“But the thing is, you don’t have to.”

Suddenly that promise is everything. If Bucky is still alive, then Steve isn’t alone. He didn’t make a mistake putting the plane in the water. There’s a meaning for him to be in this time and place, and Bucky is that meaning. That’s why Steve has to believe Bucky will remember, why he desperately doesn’t want to fight him. Steve wants them both to be able to go home again.

BTS reacting to their s/o going to sleep after them but were already awake when they wake up


It was a perfect and romantic evening when you both finally arrived at home. You two laughed a lot while closing the door. All in all it was a succeeded date. After a few minutes Jin declared that he was to tired to talk anymore and asked you to come with him into bed. But you told him that you still had to do something and he should meanwhile go. He smiled and went upstairs. In the next morning he groped the other side of your bed but you wasn’t there. He looked for you in all rooms till he finally found you in the kitchen while drinking a cup of tea. He gave you a kiss and enfolded you in his arms. While you both stood together he explained you that he was waiting for you last night but you weren’t come. You apologized. He said that you have´t to apologize for such a thing you should only told him what´s wrong with you.

When you entered your bedroom again he lay in your bed and studied you. A few moments later he asked when you finally plan to hop into your bed. But you explained to him that you weren’t tired yet and would read a book till you felt so. He wasn't´t wondering about that anymore and it doesn’t take long that he slept deeply. When Suga woke up in the next morning and he heared noises from downstairs he already knowed that you awaked  earlier as he did. He decided to stand up and look for  you. When he found you he grabbed your arm and dragged you back in your bed. He ignored all your protests and waited till you felt asleep in his arms.

You got out of the bed and sneaked along the hallway. But you weren't´t able to notice that Namjoon woke up and wondered about your weird behavior. But later, hours passed, he realized that you tried to came into bed without waking him up. In the next morning when he slept late he couldn’t believed his eyes. You were already dressed and on the way to go jogging. He got out of the bed and blocked your way. Then he made some bad jokes about how you were looked and spelled out that you seriously need your sleep.

You were sweating and your breathing was spotty, you couldn’t control it. When you calmed down you looked at your smartphone. The clock shows no more than 3 AM. It was always the same. The same nightmare. The same process after you woke up full of fear. You would stand up to went to went to the kitchen for drinking some water. but abrupt a hand enclosed your arm. You were frightened and turned around and looked straight in Hoseoks wondering face. He asked you why you were awake yet but you wouldn’t tell him whats wrong because he shouldn’t be worried about you. But that already happened. He doesn’t request anymore, he just decided to stay awake every night until you found your way into a peaceful sleep.

But after a few minutes he lost the fight against his tiredness and felt asleep. When he woke up it was 10 AM and he couldn’t find you anywhere. An hour later you entered the apartment with fresh sandwiches and coffee. He smiled but then his facial expressions became hard. He promised you that from that moment he would confine you on bed when you don´t wake him up so that he could made the breakfast.

But Taehyung noticed that. Early in the morning, you weren’t able to sleep anymore and would get out of the bed. But you stopped. You couldn’t move because of a half body laying on you. You were quite stressed but after you tried a few times to push Taehyung away you gave up. However it doesn't´t took to long and you were sleeping again. In the next morning when you woke up again he were already downstairs. You walked to him, ready to arc up about him. But he prevented your speech with a kiss.

  • Loves to tenderly kiss the top of your forehead or temple (he’s like 9'4 so that’s the lowest he’ll go)
  • Oh yeah PDA is a must. If you’re uncomfortable he’ll understand, but gets a little heartbroken if you refuse to hold his hand in public.
  • Surprise kisses. Imagine the jaws theme playing in the background.
  • Constant cheerleader ™ . Can instantly perk up your mood with his big shark toothed smile
  • Swimming, swimming, swimming dates (if you can’t, then he’ll gladly place you on his back or flat on his abdomen and float downstream with you, talking about laughing to make you smile) 
  • Bone crushing hugs galore
  • Tries to avoid giving you rough kisses. They always end in your neck being littered in bite marks. 
  • Say any pick up line or compliment and he will grow as red as the Blood Moon.
  • If you have to leave Zora’s domain for a long period of time, he’ll make sure you pack everything. But, he often takes packs more than everything needed for your trip. 
    • “Shock arrows, hylian carp, flint, wood…I should go fetch you the Lightscale trident-”
    • “Sidon!”
  • He will be saddened to see you leave, so you have to always reassure him that you’ll come back safety and are always thinking of him. (Once you return, the tail on his head wags excitedly and he drops everything to ask about your trip).
  • He prefers to hide the stress of his princely duties from you, keeping a strained smile. But you see past the “I’m fines ” and embrace him with the same power he hugs you with (or at least try). You take him on a walk along the East Lake Reservoir to get his mind off things. 

I guess what surprises me so much about this “hiatus” and the venture into the brave new world of solo 1D is the jealousy???

I’ll make no bones about the fact that Louis and Harry are my faves, and so I will probably cheer the loudest for them, but all of them are still our boys, you know? You’re not required to like what they do or the answers they give or how they dress, but why treat one poorly for the sake of another?

Bitterness, jealousy, hatred, these things do not make you a better fan, and they definitely don’t make you a better person. I have no qualms with anyone supporting their fave, what I think is terrible are the people who do it at the expense of someone else.

How about a mckirk fic where all of the milestones of their relationship just seem to happen at the most inconvenient times?

  • It is neither the time nor the place for their first kiss. Moments ago, Jim thought Spock was dead. The Vulcan was barely breathing when they beamed him and Bones back from a planet visit gone wrong. He looks so much better already when Jim finds them both in med bay. “How is he?” Jim asks. “He’ll be fine,” Bones replies, “he’ll have a headache for a week or so, but he should be okay.” “Good,” Jim replies, “how are you?” “Just a scratch,” Bones replies, smiling lightly when Jim reaches out to run his fingers just under the bruise on his cheek. “Good, or I’d have to go down to that planet myself to beat up a few aliens,” Jim says, and Bones laughs. Both seem very aware of the fact that Jim’s hand is still on Bones’ cheek. And then, before he even realizes he’s doing it, Jim leans in and kisses him. Even more surprising, is that Bones just kisses him back. It’s an odd sensation, a rush of feelings hitting him like a wave; all of which he didn’t even know existed. He’s always admired Bones, but never consciously like this. Bones looks almost equally confused when Jim pulls away, but the fact that Bones leans in for more is a comforting sign. That is, until Spock clears his throat. “Is this that crude Terran sense of humor? Because I fail to see the joke.” “Spock!” Jim calls out, grinning stupidly and probably failing miserably not to look remotely flustered. He reaches out, gently squeezing Spock’s shoulder. “Are you okay?” “Yes,” Spock replies, “please don’t kiss me, too.”
  • It’s a very formal gala they’re attending a couple weeks later. Black tie event, and everyone looks incredibly handsome. Bones does, too. They’ve talked about that kiss since it happened, decided to not pursue anything further, and yet found themselves making out at every opportunity. Not tonight, though, Jim tells himself. As much as he’d like to, eyes are going to be on the Enterprise crew, and they have to make a good impression. But damn it, Bones looks incredible. Hair styled perfectly, smoothly shaven cheeks, and an expensive suit that fits him just right. Jim doesn’t think a little subtle flirting is inappropriate, or even very obvious, but judging by Uhura’s expressions, he’s not as subtle as he thinks. That doesn’t matter when he finally gets to speak more privately with Bones, though. Both a little tipsy from the open bar, Jim finds himself pressed against the wall of a small storage closet. Lips drag over his neck, and Jim’s hands work feverishly on getting those pants off. He thinks they keep it quiet the whole time, just drunk chuckles and stifled moans. But when both of them stumble out of that closet afterwards, and a room full of eyes are on them - all messy hair, wrinkled, still partially unbuttoned shirts, turns out, they’re really not very subtle.
  • Things go great for a while. Lots of making out, there’s sex (which, with Bones’ legendary hands, is pretty great). But somehow, their bickering can get twice as intense now. Especially when either one of them faces danger on a planet or something. Bones hasn’t left Jim alone since they beamed back, and Jim’s tired of listening to Bones’ ranting about safety. Him being annoyed only makes that worse, and they end up in a pretty heated argument all the way down from the Transporter room, to Jim’s quarters. “Oh my God,” Jim groans, stepping through the doors of his quarters, “why are you still here if you disagree with all of my decisions? And why are we still yelling?!” “Because I love you,” Bones says, though leave it up to the doctor to sound angry about that, “and I can’t stand the thought of you getting hurt.” That catches Jim by surprise. Maybe Bones, too, because he falls quiet after that. “Fuck sake,” Jim says, reaching out to grab Bones’ arm and pull him in closer, “I love you, too. A little less when you’re angry at me, though.” Bones huffs, sliding his arms around Jim’s waist. “So, all the time?” he asks, and Jim laughs - arms circling around Bones’ shoulders, and he pulls the other in for a kiss.
  • Joanna knows about them because Jim has a knack for unfortunate timings; kissing Bones just as the other is in the midst of a video call with her. She’s cool with it, doesn’t even seem that surprised at all. “I’m never going to call you dad, though,” she tells Jim, “you’re Uncle Jim to me.” Jim laughs, agreeing to that, and Bones somehow seems a little less stressed now that his daughter knows about them; something Jim happily takes advantage of that night.
  • But Jim’s mom finding out - that was unplanned. They’re in York Town, about to separate for a week because Bones deserves some quality alone time with Joanna, and generally their work schedules conflict a lot here, so Jim decides he’s more than fine with not seeing Bones for a week. He isn’t really, though, it sucks. So leaning in for a proper goodbye kiss, he circles his arms around Bones’ shoulders, ignoring the other crewmen around them as they walk on to the Plaza. It doesn’t matter. The crew knows. They’ve never been particularly subtle. “James!” A familiar voice calls out to him, and Jim freezes on the spot. “Mom?” Pulling away, both of them look caught red-handed at his mother, who just smiles at the two of them. “You must be ‘Bones’?” “How do you know?” Jim asks, a little confused. Definitely a little embarrassed. “Oh, you talk about him all the time the way I talked about your father.” “I do not-” “It’s endearing,” his mother replies, and then asks them all out for a dinner. “I have a dinner date with my daughter,” Bones replies. “Invite her too,” Jim’s mother says, and just like that, Jim finds himself in the hotel restaurant where his mother is staying, surrounded by his own family, and Bones and Joanna. He thinks it’s going to be incredibly embarrassing, at first, but by the end of the night, it’s Jim  who seems a little less tensed now that his family knows about them; and it’s something Bones takes advantage of the next night they’re together.

Short opinion: Anyone who says that this series became dark over time has clearly not reread the first book in a while.

Long opinion:

While it is true that there are lighter books (#14, #35, #44, #51) and there are darker books (#6, #22, #30, #33, #52) I’m not convinced that the series gets darker as it goes.  Sure, the kids become more violent, more competent, and more morally compromised.  Yes, the yeerks gradually win the war all the way up through #52 at which point they start losing.  No, the protagonists do not grow as people over the course of the story so much as they fall apart as people over the course of the story.  However, right from the start K.A. Applegate makes no bones about the fact that this is a war, one in which there will be no nice neat simple answers, so you’d better strap in, kids, because these depictions of trauma are not for the faint of heart.  

This book is about its protagonists fighting a major battle which they lose. It contains a scene with Marco extracting a promise from Jake that Jake will kill him before letting him become a controller.  It heavily implies that Cassie is the first person on the team to become a murderer, because she doesn’t have another way to stop the controller-cop from telling the other yeerks she was morphing.  It features a battle in which the “good guys” suffer casualties (Tobias is trapped in morph; several human hosts get killed) while also accomplishing almost nothing to advance the war effort (they free one human? Maybe?), giving us the sense that Marco was probably right that they should have stayed home.  It lovingly describes pieces of Elfangor’s body falling from Visser Three’s jaws so that the hungry taxxons below can devour them.  

The series also doesn’t magically become lighter from there.  The arc of #2 hinges on the horrifying realization that, as awful as Melissa Chapman’s life has become living with neglectful and emotionally abusive parents, the alternative is infinitely worse because those same parents are allowing their conscious willpower to be destroyed in order to shield her from slavery.  #3 builds up to and then graphically describes a scene in which its narrator attempts to commit suicide.  Although #4 is lighter overall, it explores the impact Marco’s death would have on everyone from Peter to Cassie.  #5 has The Scene With The Ants.  So on and so forth.  But that’s what makes this series so freaking good: it is always horrifying, it’s always funny, it’s always heartwarming, it’s always tense, and it always features a clever balance of plot and character driving one another forward.  K.A. Applegate is a grand master wizard when it comes to emotional flow, one who does far better than most series writers I’ve ever encountered (JKR, Cornelia Funke, Jonathan Stroud, JRRT, Jeff Lindsay: take notes) at imbuing her tragedy with comedy and her comedy with tragedy without ever mocking her characters’ real pain or overdramatizing her more ridiculous plots.  

Anyway, this book doesn’t spend any time at all messing around before it launches the characters on their adventure.  The narration fulfills the promise on the back of the book (“everyone is in really big trouble.  Yeah, even you.”) right from the start by giving us enough details to make the Animorphs’ hometown vivid and individuated while also making it feel like Anywheresville, USA.  Jake’s got the most “typical” (according to fiction, anyway) life of anyone on the team: married parents, golden retriever, one sibling, big suburban house, home computer, swingset in the backyard.  And it turns out that not only are there aliens invading, there are aliens that have already invaded his house.  Jake’s been surrounded on all sides by the war for weeks if not months, and he was just pleasantly clueless enough to avoid realizing that fact until Elfangor came along and woke that boy up.  Of course Jake’s apple-pie life is the exception not the rule on this team, but the fact remains that he’s the “everyman” on the team… and he’s also under the most immediate threat of infestation.  Jake punches Marco in the head for implying that Tom’s a controller (as Cates mentioned, Jake’s a heck of a lot less practical about the whole aliens-have-your-family bit than Marco is) and we can’t even necessarily blame him—he has the most to lose in this war of anyone on the team.  The call knows where he lives; he doesn’t even have the option of refusal.

The plot wastes no time at all in having the kids encounter an alien and end up on the run for their lives, but also gives us tons of characterization along the way.  Rachel thinks Jake’s an idiot for thinking he can protect her and Cassie from anything, but agrees to walk home with him and Marco so that Cassie can have a chance to talk to him.  Jake really is kind of an idiot, since he’s apparently in the habit of climbing abandoned construction equipment in his spare time.  Marco’s a fairly brilliant video game player and all-around more mature than Jake, not that you’d know it from all his irreverent jokes throughout this plot.  Jake is adorably baffled by Rachel’s response to Tobias, because he thinks of his cousin as the kind of person who eats men for breakfast and totally fails to consider that maybe she’s got a crush like any other teenager on the planet.  Tobias goes from “it’s a flying saucer” to “we find the yeerk pool, and when we do we blow it up and kill every one of those evil slugs” in about .03 seconds flat, and to some extent drags everyone else (especially Marco) into the war kicking and screaming.  Cassie’s more than a little starry-eyed at the idea of becoming a horse, and in some ways she’s almost as naive as Jake about where this war is going.  (Marco, by contrast, figures it out a lot faster: “You sure this is just the yeerk pool?… I see a guy with horns and a pitchfork and I’m outta here.”)  

Given the immediacy and scale of the acute tension here—the planet is being taken over by parasitic aliens!—the chronic tension seems sort of silly.  Jake didn’t make the basketball team, boo-hoo.  However, he only wanted to make the basketball team so badly because he was hoping it would make Tom want to hang out with him again.  Because Tom’s been acting distant toward his whole family recently, to the point where Jake’s parents are mildly concerned.  Because Tom’s been wrapped up with this new organization, The Sharing.  Because The Sharing seems to have some really strange effects on its “full members”… Because the planet is being taken over by parasitic aliens.  I love the subtlety with which everything in Jake’s life comes around.  The war has already started reshaping his school, his town, his family, and his whole life, well before he starts turning into animals and killing aliens.  This book is scary, because not only is the invasion moving quickly but also because the Animorphs’ early attempts to fight back are like spitting on a forest fire.  Anyone could be a controller.  None of the other Animorphs know for sure about their own families until #49.  These kids can’t even ask their own families and friends for help.  

As scary as this book is, it still has room for a lot of wonder.  Cassie compares them to ancient warriors tapping mystical animal spirits for help in protecting the Earth.  Tobias reacts like every one of us sci fi fans would to finding out that aliens exist.  Jake insists that there’s hope for the planet no matter what just as long as the andalites are out there.  Right from the moment the Animorphs lose their first battle, both on a personal scale (they don’t save Tom, and lose Tobias) and on a cosmic one (they find out that Visser Three is a lot better at morphing than they are) this series sends the message: buckle up, because it’s going to be a hell of a ride.  But as scary as it’s going to be, there’s still space for Marco’s awful driving, Cassie’s wondering fascination with dolphins and horses, Tobias’s crazy eagerness to embrace the bizarre, Rachel’s joyful exploration of her inner elephant, and Jake’s heartbreaking willingness to walk into hell in order to try and protect his big brother.
