no but really how are you not twins you are basically the same person i don't get it

anonymous asked:

Hey ^^. I've seen the spoiler, and i'm really confused now. According to the spoiler someone arrives, soma opens the door and gets shot. Soma even speaks such line as "If you don't hurry up, I'll have the desserts all by myself", "You don't look well, is something wrong?", I mean he must be talking to ciel, at least he thinks so. But the carriage looks different, besides, i don't think Ciel wants to kill Soma. So Is it the twin? By the way, I can't see the twin's purpose in killing Soma

Hey Anon :) A translation got out by now so I hope you read the new chapter before reading my response. To answer your question, basically I agree with @akumadeenglish‘s post:

  • Seeing Soma’s reaction, it’s someone he has met before
  • but at the same time I really doubt it’s our!Ciel because Soma’s reaction was more lukewarm compared to how he generally reacts to Ciel (even if the last time we saw Ciel & Seb, Seb said they were going back to the house). 

Of course there are other possibilities at this point, but since it feels like the more we get into this arc the less things we speculated on make sense, personally I’m trying to avoid crack theorizing too much and so I’ll bet on the twin (probably Lord Sirius) for now. :)

As for what’s the purpose of the twin (if that’s him) for trying to kill Soma, well, that’s just my opinion but…

If we say that somehow Ciel sacrificed his twin 4 years ago (even if I don’t know exactly how that happened), which is why Seb appeared in the first place, if the twin survived/became a BD and was told/remembered about what happened, maybe he decided to take revenge on Ciel because of what happened 4 years ago and of Ciel taking his identity?

A revenge that would include:

  • shooting Soma, because he is Ciel’s “friend” even if Ciel doesn’t agree on that
  • but also taking Lizzie away from him (through emotional manipulation because she is probably very pained and confused)
  • all that in order to hurt our!Ciel.

I mean, some readers will never agree on that, but I think Soma’s words in the new chapter about Ciel are spot on:

Ciel already lost his parents (and twin) 4 years ago + Ann a year ago now, so take away the few people Ciel actually still cares about (Lizzie mostly, but maybe Soma to some extent as well, since they’ve known each other for a year now) and it would be easy to hurt him, no matter how much he pretends not to care at all. 

That’s how I see it for now anyway so I hope it’s understandable and I’m sorry if it’s not, since there are still a lot of things I can’t be sure about (namely UT’s role in all this, I’m just not sure of anything anymore).

Thanks for passing by and have a nice Kuro positivity day tomorrow, Anon :3 

Hey Anon! And I guess it’s different for everyone, depending on what you’re skeptical/didn’t like about the 2CT?
When I see how the more we get into this arc the less we can be sure of anything, I think it’s sure that Yana actually planned it long ago so that it would supposedly make sense, so I’m giving her a chance to convince me until this arc is over. :)

Personally, even if I don’t like the hidden twin trope (simply because it’s not my fav option when it comes to fiction), I’ll be more or less okay with the 2CT as long as:

  1. the main plot, current arc and future arcs still make sense storytelling-wise 

  2. the twin creates drama because he’s supposed to be a villain and not a poor little angel who just was a victim all along (seeing as he possibly just shot Soma/Agni tho, I’m not so worried about that point xD)

  3. the characters (namely Lizzie and UT) still make sense with everything that we learnt about them so far, UT being the one I’m the most worried about recently (since I’m not sure anymore of where he fits in the current arc).

That’s what I’m asking of Kuroshitsuji in general anyway, so it’s not just because the 2CT is becoming canon, even if I might become a bit more intransigent about character developments in the future (because the cast is the main reason I like Kuroshitsuji as much as I do). 

Sorry if that doesn’t help but thanks for passing by and happy Kuro positivity day to you for tomorrow, Anon :3

About Ford and the big picture in Weirdmageddon pt. 3

(Submitted by @soulsuckingisaacnewton​)

I totally agree that it does not fit with Ford’s character to disregard the fate of the universe for the benefit of two people. Especially since, as Mabel pointed out, it’s reasonable to assume that Bill would find a loophole in the deal and do something nasty to the kids anyway once the barrier was down. Ford knows better than just about anybody that Bill can’t be trusted.

The best explanation I could come up with was that at that moment, Ford had lost all hope. Ford himself was a prisoner, along with Stan. The Cipher Wheel (zodiac?) had failed and the people they would need to try it again were captured and transformed. The memory gun was of no avail due to the plate in Ford’s head. The kids were free for the moment, but they had no real weapons or leverage to use against Bill; all they could do was run. In short, as far as Ford knew, no one was in any position to fight Bill effectively. The only thing standing in his way was the barrier, and I think Ford thought that Bill would eventually find a way to break through that on his own. Bill was pretty smart, he was incredibly powerful, and he had nothing but time. He could have found some other mathematically inclined person in town and bribed or forced them to help him figure out the equation, just like he tricked Ford into helping him design the portal. Essentially, at that point Ford wasn’t thinking that he was sacrificing the universe to save his family; he was thinking that the universe was doomed no matter what he did, and the best he could do was to give his family a chance, however slim, of survival.

I hope all that makes sense to you. It’s a very depressing thought, I know, but it gives me more peace of mind than the idea that Ford would go back on all his principles at the last moment.


I… like this explanation a lot, actually. It makes much more sense than anything else I’ve seen postulated thus far, and if you plug this theory into what we’re actually shown in the finale and all the episodes leading up to it, all the pieces fall into place.

Bill probably would have eventually figured out the equation by himself if given enough time, as you said; it looked like he came up with the bulk of the Universe Portal’s design and function, after all.

Ford was mostly the hands used to build it and an editor of sorts for the project, to catch anything that Bill might overlook and take care of the real-world implementations and such. In short, the triangle is far from stupid. So it’s not a stretch to assume that a being that has lived for billions of years and has pulled the strings of history for thousands of those years could figure out a mathematical equation that took Ford only about 3 decades tops to solve, or, like you said, maybe find someone else to help him do it. He has forever to try. But since he wants to leave ASAP, torturing the stubborn meat mannequin for a handful of days until it squeals is a much quicker – and more fun! – arrangement than taking another few weeks/months/decades/centuries for him to finally have the universe-ending party he’s been planning for so long.

And Ford knows Bill better than any other living human; you can bet that he would be well aware of all this and that Bill absolutely cannot be trusted to uphold any sort of deal that’s made with him. 

You’re also right in that the general situation looks extremely bleak at the moment Ford seems to finally just quietly break. He was likely able to hold out for the days Bill was torturing him because he had the hope that his journals and the other tools he’d left behind would still be able to help Dipper find a solution to end the madness, and he wanted to delay Bill as much as possible to make sure that happened. But then the Cipher Wheel was broken, everyone was captured, and there was no one else that could hope to stand up to Bill, no tools or weapons left with which to fight him.

There was nothing more that Ford or the others could do to protect the universe. They had failed. Bill would now undoubtedly find a way past the barrier. It was only a matter of time, one way or another. It was essentially all over but the crying.

Also, just as a friendly reminder, Ford is also dealing with the aftereffects of some absolutely horrific torture, which likely lasted for days,

on top of getting shot by the security drone,

knocked around inside the alien pod,

having a friggin’ roof fall on top of him,

and being turned into a golden statue,

all in the time span of a few days. He is at this point in time exhausted, badly injured, probably sleep-deprived (I doubt Bill would have left him alone for very long, if at all, in between torture sessions), and just all in all both emotionally and physically spent, basically running on fumes and kept standing only by adrenaline and pure willpower. So he is… understandably not in the best or most rational frame of mind when Bill decides to murder the children and goes rampaging off after them through the Fear-amid.

After all, it’s kind of a stretch to seemingly go from “No Dipper we need to defeat Bill before finding Mabel so that we stop this madness ASAP,” to “ZOMG NO NOT THE KIDS PLEASE I’LL DO ANYTHING SCREW THE UNIVERSE THEY ARE THE ONLY THINGS THAT MATTER TO ME!1!” in the space of 3 episodes. Those two reactions coming from the exact same person just doesn’t make sense if you view them from a purely objective lens. Either it’s extremely ham-handed, contradictory writing (and a really badly broken Aesop to boot - “Yes children, your family should always take precedence over literally the rest of the lives in the universe combined. SO JUST LET THE REST OF IT BURN.”)… or something had to have changed in the way Ford viewed the current circumstances. Because judging by his reaction to the twins being in danger in the finale and when he found out they were alright, Ford obviously cares very, very deeply for both Dipper and Mabel.

And yet he didn’t immediately try to save Mabel in Pt. 1. Why? Because there was still a chance that they could beat Bill, and that took precedence over everything, since if Bill was defeated, everything would be saved, including Mabel.

But in Pt. 3, the situation was pretty much as hopeless as it could have possibly gotten, and Ford was just fresh out of ideas for how to possibly salvage the situation for once in his life. But even if he could no longer see a way to save the universe no matter how hard he might have tried… there was still the slim chance he might possibly be able to help save his family, and I can easily imagine that in the heat of the moment, Ford would grasp desperately at the only option he believed he had left to maybe at least do something to protect the children he’s grown to love until Stan brought up the twin switch trick. 

So yeah. It makes total sense that this ending scene isn’t as simple as some people assume, and I much prefer this interpretation of events than the more common one that Ford just flipped out at the last second and decided to flush his principles and the world down the metaphorical toilet because the twins were in danger and he suddenly had an epiphany about how they really were more important to him than the well-being of the rest of the universe.

sspaceiall  asked:

I know this has been asked a lot about what do you think about Arima and Kaneki's relationship theories.. And the most famous one is about Arima is Kaneki's dad.. But, I think he's too young to be Kaneki's biological dad, don't you think? But what about Arima being Kaneki's half brother? Same dad different mom? Due to Arima and Kaneki's parallel and physical similarities... Well, we've never heard of Kaneki's dad's life story at all... So..? Arima is actually Kaneki Kishou? KK? Coincidence?

Personally I don’t like the idea of Kaneki biologically related to Arima. I mean how often do you get a relative that shares the same birthday as you. It just feel… weird. Unless they are twins that are ten years apart, which is even more improbable. And I don’t even want to touch the cloning theory. XD;;;

Though I can see why a lot of people would think that way. I don’t think their similarity is done without purpose. There’s probably a bigger meaning Ishida-sensei has in mind. I just find it a bit too contrived to have them somehow related to each other.

One of the appeals of Kaneki (at least for me), is that he is an ordinary person who has no relation to any of the ghoul’s world prior to meeting Rize. His innocence/obliviousness to all of this is what makes his story a tragedy. By making him somehow related to the ghoul’s world would undermine it. He would no longer be a bystander who got dragged into the ghoul world by accident. He would just become the same with the vast majority of other shonen manga main characters, “the chosen one” so to speak. The fact that Kaneki went so far without anyone expecting him to really makes him appealing for me.

Personally I think the similarity between Kaneki and Arima is meant for Arima’s character development. Basically, Arima sees himself in Kaneki, which is why he ended up saving Kaneki and becomes close to him like a family.

There are probably more reasons to it, but that’s what I think about Kaneki and Arima’s relationship at the moment. :3

(P.S. I do like Arima is related to Dr.Kanou’s theory though.)

So, for the last OTP thang, can you do Hirogo? I know a lot of people don't ship it but

yes i shall and by the powet vested in me hiro hamada will be 20 when they start dating yes yes he will

who made the first move; hiro does, due to the fact he accidentally-on-purpose asks her out. (that is, he didn’t really mean to ask her to the san fransokyo robotics society formal, i mean, if i had to pick anyone to go with it’d be you, gogo. so…pick me up at eight, then? wait wHAT-)

who said ‘I love you’ first; gogo does, in a breathy whisper as they’re sitting on top of the lotus bridge.

how often they fight; most of their fights stem from their age difference. hey, hiro may be a genius, but he’s barely 20. most of their anger brew in silence afterwards, but they also make up in silence.

whose big spoon/little spoon; hiro, though, again, gogo tries. it’s easy since he’s only two inches taller than her.

what their nicknames are for each other; gogo likes to call hiro ‘iron midget’ while hiro returns the favor with ”.

whose the better cook; gogo, by default, because hiro’s the type of person who’ll forget to feed himself and will live on packaged food.

their song; i’m coming after you by owl city (x)

who remembers their anniversaries; gogo does, most of the time.

their favorite thing to do together (besides sex); going on bike rides. they speed through the suburbs of san fransokyo and get to fly together. also hiro likes holding on to gogo because it reminds him of tadashi.

who ‘wears the pants’ in the relationship; gogo, in a very very basic sense, just because of the slight maturity difference. but it’s not very pronounced.

how they would get engaged; they get engaged in the same fashion as the first date (i mean, i don’t really see myself being with anyone else in the future, to be completely honest. so, we’re getting married then? well…i guess so. great, now i have to buy a ring thANKS A LOT GOGO)

what their wedding would be like; very simple. if it was up to the both of them, they would have just gotten a certificate and been done with it but it’s tadashi would have wanted them to do. the ceremony is very quiet, at least 50 people on the SFIT green, with reception at the lucky cat cafe.

how many kids they’ll have; all hiro wants is a son to carry his brother’s name. it takes three tries; two girls and a set of twin girls, with little leiko deciding early on that she’d rather be tadashi instead.
