Imagine Bucky flirting with other girls just to make you jealous because the only girl he cares about is you.
——— Request for anon ———
You sat at the bar, stirring your drink with the tiny straw it had come with as you try your best to ignore the man who was flirting with the girls at the other side of the room. Jealousy wasn’t something you were ready to admit to, but the way your stomach clenched and churned unpleasantly was a product of just that.
Steve follows your line of sight to see who you were disdainfully glancing towards, finding Bucky and the two girls, “You alright?”
You take a sip of your drink through the straw before answering stiffly, “Just fine.”
please take a moment to imagine the Federation version of Eurovision as @swordfern and I have envisioned it, in a post-DS9 peaceful future:
-Bajor does something very soothing with hand percussion and like…. background eurythmy dancing but the lyrics are utterly heart-wrenching.
-Betazed is always a fan favorite- they really get into the pop ballads and impressive choreography, and of course aim to inspire ~feelings~
-Romulans do the super intimidating acts like that one song about Moscow Germany did one year.
-Klingons just do fucking opera every time, with intense choreography, generally involving weaponry.
-Andorians do… whatever the andorian version of death metal is. imagine andorian headbanging. with those antennae. imagine.
-the new Cardassian Republic, when it finally gains admittance, is intensely earnest and a bit disco. No one really knows how to react to this.
-Vulcan sends one person with a Vulcan lute and they play an extremely logical arrangement extremely well, with no dancers or any illogical frippery… and they repeat this each year. No one ever votes for Vulcan.
SO I guess Amon is a flop because he failed to regenerate his limbs like Takizawa. His three-fingered hand is most likely his new kagune, similar to the makeshift arm Kaneki came up with after having it ripped off by Kanae
The koukaku is right at his wounded shoulder anyway– ironically more convenient than Kaneki having to run his rinkaku up his back (although with his massive amount of RC cells, he seems to have kakuhous pocketed all over himself now).
My guess is that Amon is actually closer in makeup to a Garden Child than a OEG like Kaneki or Seidou. Arima mentioned that “not all can manifest a kagune”– which he obviously can– but is still capable of inhuman physical feats.
It also explains this:
It seems like the Garden has been trying to make OEG’s for a long time now, and getting the wrong results. No regeneration. Failures. Floppies.
In creating a superior species, this is probably what makes Rize so special. If she is truly a half-ghoul/human, then her rapid regeneration, kagune, and double-kakugan on top of the physical benefits of being a hybrid probably makes her a token bloodline to keep in their breeding pools.
It is odd, though, that Arima guessed that the Washuu wanted to become “more human”. Maybe they really are trying to reverse their pedigree, to eradicate any history that ghouls ran the CCG. Maybe the children are all Washuu in one way or another– shortened lifespans and kagune manifestation makes them wastes. Maybe Rize is a failure, too, but a surprising result still useful in extending the longevity of their hybrids until they’re fully human.
On second thought, the Washuu may not have wanted to be more human, but told the garden kids that their ghoulishness was undesirable to justify having them kill other ghouls.
ANYWAY. While we still don’t know whether Amon was released or escaped, I’m sure through one way or another he witnessed Takizawa’s torture. Kanou was as open as they get in his campaign to “make another Kaneki”, so being the smart cookie he is, Amon has probably figured out what has been going on with “Eyepatch” and will most likely be on a mission to rescue him, too.
