mako you are all that is good in the world

I’m having trouble figuring out what’s up with Minako here. Has the sword become too heavy? Did she hurt her leg? It’s not really clear.

What IS clear though is that Mako takes it and is AWESOME.

I’d really love to see more of this, and I hope the manga serves me here. That the sword is Minako’s, but it’s a weapon all the Inners can and do use. And perhaps use differently? Each with a method of channeling themselves through the sword (or the sword through them). Like Mako had brute strength here, perhaps, but when Rei wields it, it’s flaming, and Ami uses it not so much as a direct weapon, but to like, reflect something and uses trajectories to hit an impossible target.

I have to say that I’m not confident I’ll get anything close to what I want here, but I would dearly love to be proven wrong.

Newmann Wedding
  • S: The tabloids when newt and hermann actually get married. "The two elusive 'doctors of the drift' get hitched"
  • L: A really unflattering photo of newt side by side with an actually very decent one of hermann: "Drift Compatible? "
  • L: Newt threatens to buy all the copies and have them destroyed, Hermann buys one copy and has it framed
  • S: "Look they got you at your best, newton."
  • L: "I'm asking for all of the residuals from your publications in the prenup, asshat"
  • S: Hjshdjfjdu hermann and newt at the afterpart of their wedding, newt with his tie all loose (it was nice for once) and looking rumpled and tired, drinking gross champagne. "Why are so many people here?" "Newton we're somewhat famous." "Yeah but not popular."
  • L: Okay okay okay but sometime near the end of the war i can see them just sort of quietly filing for a marriage license "just in case" only they never bother telling anybody about it bc at the time it feels so frivolous
  • L: Afterwards when they are going to be having a proper wedding Newt makes a lot of public melodramatic statements about "making an honest man out of me"
  • S: Theyre probably legally married long before the wedding, "just in case" for the same reason. If one of them fuckin bites it they dont want to be given the runaround. Finally after the war theres time for a wedding, and now theyve saved the world and colleges who hated them are now playing nice (snidely)
  • L: Newt tipsy and happy at the reception, "I don't recognize most of you people but I'm glad we're not all dead and you're welcome and thanks for coming"
  • S: Just. The two of them bonding over making shitty comments to eachother about their wedding guests and party crashers and how this whole thing stopped being in their control the moment they elected mako as their best man and max as the maid of honor.
  • L: YES MAX
  • L: Good
  • S: It would have been chuck but hes very much so dead and they cant get herc into a dress and newt vetoed raleigh taking his place.
  • L: Tendo declines with "always a bridesmaid never a bride"
  • S: "Tendo, man, youre married" "and i wasnt a bride."
  • L: Imagine the two of them hiding in a storage closet with their ties undone, tears streaming down their faces and biting their hands to suffocate their hysterical loony laughter over how SURREAL this whole scene is
  • L: Like a year ago nobody gave a shit about them and now their in grocery checkout lane magazines
  • S: Newt offhandedly having a panic attack the entire time while hermann steadily gets shitfaced on disgusting champagne that everyone hates but wont stop drinking. Mako has eaten so many of those little candies that she drops wrappers on the floor when she pulls a packet of tissues out of her pocket. Max has eaten more cake than chuck would have and everyone finds this commendable. Raleigh keeps trying to dance with mako who keeps steering hermann away from the alcohol. Theres speeches, theres not one single good speech. Hermann knows like ten of the 100+ attendees and newt knows less.
  • L: Newt slips the dj $20 to play Run To The Hills when he and Hermann arrive at the reception
  • L: Hermann VERY drunkenly toasts "my gorgeous dreadful ridiculous husband" in bavarian german
Korra was undecided about what to do about Mako. She specifically expresses that Thank You may not be enough. Mako says their bond is so strong it is unnecessary to say thank you. Mako is injured and almost lost his life but he thinks he will do it again for Korra and the Krew for he lives for this. Asami cries for losing her Dad whom she didnt give a shit about for 5 years promptly making it all about her. Asami says she wouldn’t know what she would so of she lost Korra too. Yeah, hello, Korra ALMOST LOST HER LIFE AND DID A SUPER DANGEROUS THING LIKE OPENING A FUCKING SPIRIT PORTAL. And then basically has Korra apologise to her for "putting her through that" a life and death situation which INVOLVED KORRA'S LIFE AND KORRA'S AVATAR SPIRIT FUCKING NOT ASAMI IN ANY FUCKING WAY. So, this is one of the principal reasons why I dislike Korra/sami and I love Makorra because even as a friend Mako knows what to do and say and not act like a self-centered narcissistic piece of shit. I mean seriously Asami life doesn’t revolve only around her. What the hell were the writers thinking? Asami never celebrates any of Korra’s achievements nor does she embrace how far Korra has come. She only acts like some propagandist saying “oh, the world needs you ‘cause you are the avatar” wtf advice is that. At least Mako specifies they all needed Korra for Korra. Korra doesn’t have to do avatar duties all the time when she is healing at that moment because she is well not in a good place. She needs someone to remind her what she stands for as herself as well as avatar. Mako does this all the time. Asami just repeats rote memorisation things. This coupledom is BADLY written. It serves no one and shows Asami as a self-centered, spoiled rich girl who only gives a damn when it is about her. Mako caring and loving Korra with no relationship goals is something that Korra could use rather than a vacation Asami (I mean seriously the person who went through shit is Korra not Asami; Asami has been able to live her life whatever fucking way she wanted since B1). Korra is pushed aside in HER OWN FUCKING STORY to make room for a ship. This is a tragedy.

anonymous asked:

Can I request a soulmate au with poly Roadrat?

I might be mistaken but I think someone was thinking of doing one? Followers, you know anything more, because it’s a shame that there shouldn’t be a roadrat ship week

Meanwhile, to tide you over, have some poly!roadrat Soulmate AU. I went with “Soulmates having a song in their heads that gets more complex the closer they are to each other” again because I love this concept too much




The third day on the road, Mako’s radio breaks down. It’s been wonky ever since the explosion, filled with static and barely comprehensible warnings not to approach the omnium or be anywhere southwest of it. That’s the way the wind and the fallout’s blowing. Mako has been driving southwest from the start, packed with everything he owns and whatever he could scavenge in the immediate aftermath. He doesn’t care about the radiation. It already did its worst to him.

And now it takes the radio and with it everything he had to drown out the song. He tries not to listen to it but as these things go the more he ignores it the louder it becomes. It’s just a low bass like faraway drums, repeating periodically. His soulmate is somewhere far away and he, turned inside out by nuclear fallout and without a home or family to return to, thinks it’s best they stay that way.
He drives on, makes a note to repair the radio as soon as possible, and listens only to the wheels on the dust covered paths.

One day he’ll forget all about the song and what it means.

One day he does.

queer-ocean-dweller  asked:

How did you two end that special date? (you know, the one after Ryuko saved the world and defeated Ragyo)

Ryuko: After we saw Satsuki off, we just walked home and ended up watching cartoons together for the rest of the night.

Mako: It was the best! Ryuko-chan told really terrible puns all the way home and they were so bad I almost started crying from laughter.

Ryuko: Wouldn’t that mean they were good though?

Mako: No! It’s just that they were so bad, they were good.

Haru: Get in.

Makoto: Huh~ eh?

Makoto: Yikes! It’s really dark in your house! Can’t you at least turn on the light? Aaah!?  Haru… why are you covering up my eyes?

Haru: Don’t open your eyes until we get to the living room.

Rin: Hahahaha, seeing you looking so surprised like that made it all worth it!

Makoto: You guys did this all… for me?

Nagisa: Rin-chan was supper excited when we were preparing! He’s the one who suggested that we’d all hide and surprise you when you walk in, Mako-chan…

Rei: And even though he kept saying how busy he was, he’s always the first to be here to help prepare.

Rin: Wha-!? I’m only here cos you guys wouldn’t stop bothering me about it!

Rei/Nagisa/Gou: hehehe….

Haru: …it’s nothing special.

Nagisa: C'mon, Mako-chan, sit down! You too, Haru-chan!

Gou: I brought a camera! Let’s take a group photo!

Nagisa: Well prepared as always, Gou-chan!

Rin: I’m gonna light the candles now~

Rei: Well then, we’ll first sing a birthday song and…

Nagisa: There! Mako-chan, blow out the candles!

Makoto: Oh, there’s something inside the cake… ugh, please don’t tell me it’s…

Haru: Mackerel.

Makoto: Why would you put that in there!?

Haru: It adds a subtle touch to the flavor.

Makoto: It’s not subtle at all~!!

Nagisa: There, there, you never know, the chocolate-mackerel cake might taste good!

Makoto: Geez, Haru~~~

*laughter*

Rin: *teases Makoto* (probably asking him to take a bite)

Makoto: eeeh~~

SOMETIMES I GO BACK AND WATCH THE “THAT'S MY ROOM” BIT

JUST TO REMIND MYSELF HOW RALEIGH HAS LITERAL STARS IN HIS EYES AS HE LOOKS AT MAKO

HE IS LETTING OUT A DREAMY SIGH AS SHE WALKS PAST HIM

HE IS WRITING “MR. MAKO MORI” ON AN INVISIBLE TRAPPER KEEPER IN HIS HEART

AND THAT ON ITS OWN IS WORTH IT

BUT IF I STICK AROUND A FEW SECONDS LONGER I ALSO GET TO SEE THE MOMENT WHERE HE SAYS THIS IS WORTH FIGHTING FOR AND MAKO STARTS TO TURN AROUND

AND WE THE AUDIENCE THINK SHE IS ABOUT TO GET TALKED INTO IT

LIKE RALEIGH’S ABOUT TO BUST OUT WITH “A WHOLE NEW WORLD” AND THEY’LL GO ON A MAGIC JAEGER RIDE BECAUSE FUCK EVERYONE

BUT SHE ISN’T

HAVING

IT

AT ALL

AND SHE SHUTS HIM DOWN 

AND THEN HE SAYS “WILL YOU AT LEAST TELL ME WHAT HIS PROBLEM IS”

AND SHE SHUTS

THE DOOR

IN HIS FACE

GOD BLESS PACIFIC RIM

Second Chances, Part 4

Korra sees a lot of herself in Kuvira, even in prison, and is determined to offer her guidance.  Unfortunately, not everyone is happy about that.  Continues from Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.

A/N: The last couple of chapters might have been setup, but this is where the story really kicks into gear.  =)  At the moment, I’m thinking that the Spirit World arc will conclude in two chapters, and the next arc will take place after a time skip. Sit back and enjoy the ride.  ;)

  • Person: OMFG RINHARU ISNT A GOOD SHIP EW RIN OMFG MAKOHARU BECAUSE MAKO IS ANGEL BAE
  • Me: ...The boy called him HIS FUCKING SHINING. HE TRANSFERRED SCHOOLS ACROSS THE WORLD JUST TO FIND HIM. HE TRIED TO TOUCH THE NAPE OF HIS NECK. HE MAKES HIM BLUSH WHENEVER THIS DORK GETS ALL ROMANTIC. THEY BOTH EVEN SAID THEY WERE "SAVED" THANKS TO REI.
  • If you need more of an explanation, PLEASE, do not HESITATE to come and ask.

I will forever love Mako defending Usagi by taking on an entire gang of street toughs by herself, but Mako plucking Usagi out of the car’s way in one arm and running with her like she’s a fucking football will take a worthy second place.

A VERY WORTHY SECOND PLACE

Mamoru left on an airplane.

He never arrived.

And these are the first words out of Mako’s mouth.

Their faces. THEIR PERFECT FACES.

Look at fucking Mako, oh my god. she’s SO CERTAIN.

“Between us and that club you can’t even use yet, we have got this shit covered. Nobody can even THINK about hurting you!”

AND MINAKO

Confident, NATURALLY, but look at that smirk, that little glint in her eye.

Minako’s not just sure that they’ll protect Usagi, SHE’S KIND OF LOVING THIS. This is a DIRECT CHALLENGE. Of her Senshi. Of HER. And they’re all doing SO WELL at meeting it head-on, Minako feels. That is the satisfied, anticipatory look of preparing to crush the arrogant dickwaffle who dared to think they could get the better of you.

MY GIRLS

Usagi starts freaking out because Galaxia’s giving zero fucks about the Starlights and broadcasting their ass kicking on her own SCREENOTRON. Forgetting Bird Sacrifice (not in quite the way I meant, but), Usagi goes running straight for the zappy barrier because she is a deeply caring bunny of very little brain, but Rei and Mako are on Usagi-wrangling duty and run forward to catch her.

BUT IT’S REALLY KIND OF GREAT

When we cut to Usagi running, Mako and Rei are already moving. Usagi gets, at best, like a two step headstart. What’s awesome in that is demonstrating just how on edge Rei and Mako are. They’re watching people they know – friends, sort of – potentially being killed on a fifty-foot giant screen. But rather than be sucked into that, they were ready to react INSTANTLY. And not just to an incoming attack, which would be one thing, but to Usagi running away from them and TOWARD THE DANGER. They recognized what she was doing and processed it INSTANTLY to be already moving and cutting her off.

And I can’t lie, this sort of scenario puts me in a frame of mind for another time Usagi went running headlong toward something and had to be stopped. I SEE YOU EPISODE.

Take a second to enjoy how it’s animated though, because it’s actually pretty great. I’ve been looking at it loop as I write this, and Mako’s legs are especially captivating. The way she zigzags to follow Usagi makes me think of a watching a predator chasing prey. Then I love how she just bodily wraps herself around Usagi. Mako you are best.

Then there’s Rei, who has to put on an extra burst of speed to not just catch up to Usagi but GET IN FRONT OF HER. And I’ll remind again that Usagi’s tearing headlong into an INVISIBLE INSTAKILL BARRIER, so Rei doesn’t really have any idea where it is. So her gut reaction? Put her body between Usagi and the deadly thing. REI HINO I SWEAR TO GOD

There are some great single frames in there too.

WELCOME TO YOUR LIVES LADIES

Rei puts her head down for this sprint to duck in front of Usagi, and I really quite enjoy that for the “GO GO RUN FASTER” element she was doubtless screaming in her head. But it’s also great if you consider that for all she knows she’s about to run straight into the aforementioned invisible instakill death barrier, and yeah, I’D PROBABLY WINCE A BIT TOO

It’s also possible Usagi just clocked Rei in the head, which would make Mako’s expression even more hilarious.

I JUST REALLY LOVED THIS A LOT

My best girls being the best bodyguards.

Do you know how much I love them. Do you KNOW

DO YOU KNOW HOW IT GUTS ME TO BE SAYING GOODBYE TO THEM

AND FOUR-FIFTHS OF THEM AREN’T EVEN HERE TO SAY GOODBYE TO

LOOK AT THEM LOOK AT THIS SHIT

USAGI STANDING THERE SHE HAS A SANDWICH SANDWICHES ARE AMAZING THEY ARE SO PERFECT AND SHE NEARLY BITES HER HAND OFF IN HER RUSH TO EAT IT AND EXPERIENCES THIS MOMENT OF PUREST DELIGHT POSSIBLE AT A SANDWICH AND SHE KNOWS SHE’S RIDICULOUS BUT GOD DAMN SANDWICHES FUCK YEAH

AMI WITH HER NOSE IN A BOOK BUT NOT REALLY BECAUSE AN ICE CREAM LURKS BENEATH AND SHE’S SO TICKLED TO BE JUST A LITTLE BIT NAUGHTY AND ALSO SHAKE HER BUM AMI WHAT ARE YOU DOING

REI STOMPING ALONG CONQUERING SHOPPING LIKE NO ONE HAS EVER CONQUERED SHOPPING BEFORE SHE IS UNSTOPPABLE SHE IS ETERNAL SHE IS TRIPPING AND BUSTING HER FACE AND BEING RIDICULOUS AND MY HEART IS GOING TO EXPLODE I LOVE HER SO MUCH

MAKO BEING QUIET AND BEAUTIFUL AND ALL THE THINGS SHE STILL BELIEVES SHE CAN NEVER BE AND WHEN A BUTTERFLY LANDS ON HER BECAUSE BUTTERFLIES KNOW WHAT THE FUCK IS UP MAN ALL SHE CAN DO IS LOOK AT IT ALL CONFUSED BECAUSE MAKO IS ALL THAT IS GOOD IN THE WORLD AND THE ONLY ONE WHO NEVER UNDERSTANDS THAT IS MAKO

AND MINAKO IN SOMEONE’S KITCHEN (PROBABLY NOT HER KITCHEN MINAKO WHOSE KITCHEN DID YOU SNEAK INTO) AND SHE’S MAKING PANCAKES FOR LIKELY NO REASON OTHER THAN FUCK IT WHY NOT PANCAKES AND SHE’S GOING TO FLIP IT SHE KNOWS SHE SHOULDN’T FLIP IT BUT FLIPPING IS GOING TO HAPPEN ANYWAY AND SHE’S LOST IT SHE’LL MAKE A MESS IT WILL BE TERRIBLE BUT NO SHE CAUGHT IT AND LIKE OF COURSE SHE CAUGHT IT SHE’S SAILOR FUCKING V

I LOVE THEM SO MUCH YOU GUYS

SO MUCH
