The Soldier -  Chapter 1

***Edited as of 3/25/2017***

He hadn’t been holding on that tight but when he let go, the ghost of the pressure still lingered on my skin. “Hm, I guess we’re not as similar as I thought.” He stepped back, took another drag of his cigarette, and crossed his arms.

“Guess not.” I replied, but there was a part of me that knew I was lying. A part of me that recognized the truth in his words, however small it was, and was excited by it.

Pairing: Eric/OC
Fandom: Divergent
Rating: M


I blocked the fist that was heading towards me with a forearm and began my attack. My pulled punches quickly found their mark on his jaw and temple before I stopped and stepped back.

“Again.” He commanded as we broke apart, his fists coming up into position. I lifted my hands in response and closely observed his body language, anticipating his next move. His tongue became visible as it pressed down into his lower lip. His face was full of concentration as we slowly circled each other, both waiting for the other to make the first move. He had the advantage in height, towering over me by almost a full foot, which would have been intimidating if I didn’t have full knowledge of how to counter his moves from our months of training.

Reasons Why Bebop & Rocksteady RULE OOTS
  • Yannow, our very first look at them you take em seriously.  They’re all chained up in the back of a high security vehicle, ready to be escorted to prison.  Rocksteady’s all grim and that ultra close-up on Bebop’s profile is sinister as fuck. These guys are dangerous! They’ve done some serious crime and now they’re gonna do some serious time. Why else are they being transported with the Shredder? Just the three of them?
  • Then they both sigh in relief he’s shackled up away from them. Okay, they’re knuckleheads. Dangerous knuckleheads, maybe, but knuckleheads all the same. <3
  • Rocksteady’s all fangirling and Bebop’s just supportive af of it. How many times has he listened to Rocksteady sigh and swoon over the Shredhead? Now the moment has come and he won’t let his man miss his chance.
  • That POP on BeBOP is cute af
  • omg they just slide right into a little banter easy as pie and holy shit they’re already having a fucking great time! you can see straight away nothing amuses these guys more than each other and they don’t give a damn if everyone else around them is baffled or bewildered. 
  • “My man!” “My man!” o m ggggggggggggggggg (●♡∀♡)
  • they can’t fist-bump so they foot-bump. Nothing will stop these guys showing their physical appreciation for each other! they’re in love and they don’t care who knows it!
  • wait, their truck is being bombed? explosions all around? mayhem and chaos and possible imminent death? Time to PARTAAAAY! they are all into it and loving every minute. This is the shit these guys live for and you can’t help but revel right along with them. Can you imagine when these guys first started dating? Say what you will, but they sure know how to show a fella a good time. ˉ̶̡̭̭ ( ´͈ ᗨ `͈ ) ˉ̶̡̭̭
  • They might not be that bright, but they know an opportunity when they see one.
  • And there’s some serious satisfaction in watching them bash the snot out of that bland, banal excuse for Casey Jones. or was that just me?
  • “Heeeeey, my name is Be BOP!” I LOVE that moment cos it really shows these guys are mad, bad and dangerous to know. That’s a nasty kick to the face and it’s done in a nastily gleeful way. The fun here is they’re so much damn fun but… you really should take ‘em seriously too. They’re bad guys. 
  • “Hi”. Ditto this moment. He kicks that cop right out the damn truck into the middle of a highway.
  • And the next thing you know, they’re sitting around laughing and toasting each other over it all. Make no mistake, these boys love what they do - especially the nasty bits.
  • Also, it’s so fucking adorable they just go right back to their favourite bar, no disguises, in broad daylight. Dweebs. <3
  • Every single damn thing about them is so boisterous and unrestrained and flamboyant and it is a beauty and a joy forever.
  • Bebop deathstaring the barkeep and cautioning him against making eye contact. It’s hilarious cos it’s hard to take him seriously, but the ironic part is the barkeep probably should…
  • ROCKSTEADY’S WISTFUL LITTLE DREAMY MOMENT OMMMMMGGGGGGGGGFGGGGGGGGGG IT IS SO SWEET THE WAY HE STARES OFF IN YEARNING AND DREAMS SO BIG!  (。♥‿♥。) er… even if his dreams are to start a major crime syndicate. it’s still cute af!
  • And Bebop is right on board with it all, spinning the dream into an even grander fantasy. We know they’re way too incompetent to ever get their shit together and make it happen, but they’ve got each other’s backs all the way. These two would stick together to the bitterest of ends.
  • The way Bebop polishes his knife is hot, shutup. 
  • They’re so very scared of Shredder and it’s so very cute.
  • Look at these dweebs; they’re thrilled to be on board with the big bad Shredhead. Look at his digs, they’re schmick af and what was that he was saying about ultimate power? They’ve hit the jackpot this time! 
  • Looming in the back looking all beefy and badass. If we didn’t know they were such utter dorks, they might even be intimidating.
  • Kids in a candy store, messing around with Baxter’s undoubtedly super expenno and very important equipment. No matter where they are, or what they’re doing, these boys are focused on fun, fun, fun, the messier and naughtier the better. That childlike charm jars oh so deliciously with their thuggery and viciousness. <3
  • AND THEY LOVE IT! Instantly, completely, wholly and unhesitatingly embrace the ever loving fuck out of that shit.  I did NOT expect that, but it makes them all the more delightful. They’re ecstatic, amped up on the new power throbbing through their veins, thrilled by their new bodies. They completely accept each other’s new looks as well, laughing together as Rock squeezes Beebs’ shoulder, not grossed out or put off in the slightest, affirming how strong and deep their bond goes. They’re keen as mustard to find out what all they can do, roughhousing without restraint or rancour, just love, love, love, LOVE.
  • And hey, you wanna know what? I’ve just pegged onto what makes this duo so damn appealing. It’s love. Everything they do, everywhere they go and every dream they have, it’s out of love. Love for each other, love for violence, love for mayhem, love for what they are, love for fun. There’s no hate or spite or anger or bitterness to them. Just joy and amusement and sheer, sweet love.
  • Also their reactions are just so cute. Rocksteady’s waggly ears, the kiss he blows his own dick. Bebop’s dangling jaw and flickering ears, the huge grins they give each other and, of course, the delighted MY MAN. Ooohhh, and Bebop points to Rock. 🎶I know what they’re gonna do laaa-terrrrrr! 🎶 (ᗒᗜᗕ)՛̵̖
  • “Check out my tail! Wiggle wiggle wiggle!” I die.
  • Pigging out on drums filled with spaghetti and meatballs and we can see just how easily they’ve adjusted to their new lifestyle. We all know these guys were slobs before and they’ve just embraced this opportunity to really just unleash their wild sides! 
  • Woah and if you look close, you see it now - Bebop looks upset and confused when it seems at first Rock is telling him he’s not fat! And a big smile just races up his face when Rock tells him he looks REALLY fat! Can these two get any more gorgeous?
  • But - but that means that Rock knew what Bebop wanted to hear and that kind sensitivity in his voice was to reassure his man he’s got nothing to worry about, he’s fat as fuck. OMG THEY JUST GOT EVEN MORE GORGEOUS.
  • Also that whole scene is so obviously foreplay. Slapping that belly, Bebop’s ‘blubby blubby’ sounds, the big grins, the cries of ‘my man!’ - it’s intensely erotic and if Shredder and Karai hadn’t interrupted them, this movie would’ve been x-rated.
  • Also can we celebrate the animation detail? All. that. jiggle. hnnnnnnnng.  ( ♥ ټ ♥ ☚)
  • I’m sure Rocksteady deeply appreciates the suction skills Bebop is showing off right there. *ahem* 
  • The way Beebs grabs Rock for them to charge that meteor shard together, it’s just so cute! <3
  • “Smash it” “That’s what we do!” - and you do it SO well. <3 But seriously, I love that everything they do can basically be boiled down to those two simple words. And I mean everything.
    (ie: each other’s butts)
  • “My speedo’s already packed!” - eeeeeeeee, don’t tease, I wanna see THAT! (๑ ิټ ิ) But omg all that excitement is just too friggin’ cuuuuuute!
  • AHHHHHHHHHHHHH they’re destroying the Amazon rainforest yet somehow it is so damn cute??? Bebop singing along to his tunes, the relaxed happiness on Rocksteady’s face as he joins in, their uninhibited and unrestrained joy as they live it the fuck up!
  • Oooohhhh that fistbump after they blast open the meteor is somehow sexy as fuck??? It’s just so casual, so second nature to them, swoooooon! <3
  • To say nothing of their huge, lumbering forms as they stride towards it.
  • The turtles first look at them. Lost for words. <3
  • Bebop smoothing his ‘hawk, and Rocksteady ain’t too impressed at Mikey’s dig about it either. They got each other. 
  • Their squeaks and snorts and growls and grunts are just <3 <3
  • That clothesline Beebs floors Leo with is BRUTAL.  It’s not fat, it’s POWER.
    Okay, it’s fat too. 
  • And Rocksteady bodyslams Raph like it’s no big thing. Woof!
  • “Woah, MUMMMMYYYYYYYY!” I’m sorry, but it’s beyond adorable that Rock calls for his mum when Raph chucks him across the hull.
  • That little chuckle as he climbs up behind that machine gun! <3
  • “Dude! Seriously?” That’s the closest we ever get to seeing one of them cranky at the other, and he sounds irritated more than anything else. Nothing comes between these two.
  • OMG Rocksteady owns his fuckup like a man. That is a rare thing to see. Hell, not even the tmnt are capable of doing that 90% of the time! Between this, the body positivity, and the unstinting emotional support they show each other, these guys are just about the most adorably social justice warrioring violent, ruthless villains around! ヽ(o♡o)/
  • “This pig is flyinnnnnnnng!” - it’s sheer, solid, 24 carat gold. Bebop, you chubby delight.
  • He just fell 30,000 feet out of a plane and Bebop is still laughing and rearing to go. That bellyflop is the most adorable thing ever. <3
  • Rocksteady is having THE TIME OF HIS LIFE riding that tank down the river, firing the cannon, punching the sky. That is some fine living.
  • EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE the way Rock catches Beebs, “thanks buddy!”, Rock’s hand on his shoulder, Beebs fixing his ‘hawk, the adoring way they gaze at each other, the fistbump, just, just, just, EVERYTHING, god, how are they so fucking perfect??? ♡✧。 (⋈◍>◡<◍)。✧♡
  • BUT HERE’S A GOOD POINT: Beebs and Rock work amazingly as a team. They don’t beat the turtles here because they’re as smart, or as skilled, but because they know how to work together and they’ve always got each other’s backs. From the start of the film that team work has been in effect and serving them hella well. It’s yet another key indication to how functional and actually healthy their relationship with each other is - at this point in the film, more so than the turtles have got!
  • H O L Y S H I T those two big fat boys on their big fat boys, help me, I’m swooning so hard the world is topsy turvy Σ_( ♡ ཀ ♡ 」∠)_
  • Bebop flipping cars easy as that. The mighty power of all that brawn. Hubba hubba. 
  • Rocksteady kicking Casey clear across the room. POW.
  • “Get over here, little boy. Put down that popsicle stick”. (✽´ཫ`✽) *panting heavily*
  • Rocksteady charging whilst Bebop follows close behind on his bike.
  • Rocksteady charging. I mean, WOW. I mean, that’s fucking awesome. I mean, I need a cold shower.
  • The looks on the faces when they realise that’s one of their own damn grenades! (ᗒᗜᗕ)՛̵̖
  • And that final “my man”, complete with the unmistakeable slap of Bebop’s hand on Rocksteady’s shoulder. Even here, when they’re outsmarted, blown up, trapped and defeated, they’re not bickering or blaming each other. They’re still just as affectionate and supportive. The ultimate power couple. <3
  • In conclusion, Bebop and Rocksteady steal a truck, steal an artifact, steal our hearts and ultimately steal the show. They’re two dangerous and vicious criminals who’s idea of a good time is destroying shit, kicking butts and crushing skulls, who show no signs of remorse for any bad deed they’ve done and yet they’re also insanely supportive of each other, totally loyal and devoted, celebrate each other’s bodies, are completely at ease with themselves and easily embrace the dramatic changes they undergo, love to have fun, work brilliantly together as a team without having a single serious squabble or fight, look out for each other all the way and are all too obviously truly, madly, desperately in love. They’re a glorious study in healthy, happy romance and light up our lives every second they’re onscreen, sharing their joy. They’re a precious, precious gift we must all remember to treasure forever, because Bebop and Rocksteady remind us all what it means to live, love and laugh like there’s no tomorrow, and thank god for that.

anonymous asked:

something i love about the animation: they're not afraid to make their characters ugly. so much anime nowadays is focused on cute/pretty/conventionally attractive characters Staying that way. but in mp100 not only do the characters make exaggerated poses and facial expressions often, it makes everything even more visually interesting and i just. love this show a lot. god damn. studio bones owns my ass and so does ONE

heck YEAH MAN i appreciate that ONE and BONES stick with these goofy character designs. i too am tired of the overly cute uguu characters in anime and im glad ONE doesnt follow the crowd


Judgement - Judgement, Inner Calling, Rebirth.

*sees something not about space* *makes it about space*

So I didn’t even know the Royal Theatre was having their Tangled and BatB shows replaced by Frozen???

Like I only knew bc someone posted something on instagram the other day.

Man, I love Frozen, but it just makes me SO sad. Why is it having to replace everything?!

I know it’s said the shows might return at a later date, but I mean c'mon! Frozen takes over Maelstrom, Frozen takes over Animation Academy, Frozen takes over the Royal Theatre?!

For goodness’ sake, pretty much every time I went to Disneyland during my DCP I looked forward to catching a show of Tangled and meeting Flynn and Punzie.

We should just rename the parks Frozenland and Frozen World.

Given what’s crossed my dash and what I’ve seen in the tags, it seems like fandom is about 50/50 split on whether they like the new Sailor Moon Crystal designs or they hate them, so neither side should feel too entirely alone with their reactions.

I’m still reserving some judgement, seeing them in animation will make a big difference, but so far I’m cautiously optimistic about them, I like that kind of art style, and I think it could be just the right mix of pretty and cute and beautiful and adorable and everything else I associate with Sailor Moon.  I like that they look just a little bit stylized and, oh, man, I am super excited about having an anime that’s closer to the manga storyline and personalities.

I enjoyed what the original anime did, but I love the manga characters so much more, they’re the ones that really and truly stole my heart.  And I cannot wait for the promos and the gifs that will result and the screencaps and getting to hear the voices and just–  asdlkfjlak still excited, okay!
