not too sure how much i ship them but this scene is too precious

Theory on the Future Fate of the Blue Lion

 First off, if you haven’t seen the new reboot of Voltron or listened to the SDCC Voltron panel, let me warn you that this post will contain some spoilers so stop reading right now and go watch Voltron. 

Ready? Okay, here we go.

Now I know that ever since season one of Voltron has ended, the growing fandom of Voltron has been producing A LOT of theories of what season two will bring us. And the trailer for season two has only doubled the hype for the upcoming season and for the fan theories. 

The two theories that seem to dominate the Voltron tag are definitely the theory that Keith is either a Galra/Human hybrid or Galra/Altrean hybrid (seriously this theory has pretty much taken control over all Voltron art and fanfiction in the last few weeks) and the second theory is that Shiro will either by killed off like his forgotten 80′s Norwegian brother Sven (rest in peace dear Holgersson) or be captured for long period of time allowing Keith or Allura to take over the Black Lion. (Though this theory begs the question that is Keith has to lead Voltron and pilot the Black Lion to do so does that mean Lance will take over the Red and Allura pilot the Blue? Will Keith have to give Lance his precious red jacket? Will Lance grow a 80′s mullet too? This theory brings up so many questions)

Both these theories are awesome and have pumped up a lot of great material from the fandom so far and will probably continue to do so until season two comes around later this year.

However, there’s been a theory mulling around in my head for a while now and so far, I haven’t really seen any other fan pick up on it. And since I have no one to discuss this with, I’m going to lay it all out right here for you Voltron fandom!

As the title of this post suggest, this theory revolves around the Blue Lion which automatically means a lot of it is going to deal with this guy:


 Why so scared? Not every Voltron theory is filled with angst and- oh fuck, nevermind.

Yes, while the most fandom are biting their nails over the fates of poor alien Keith and the possible death/capture/brainwashing of Tadashi- oh nevermind that’s Sven- I mean Shiro- I’m sitting in my isolated corner of outlandish theories mentally preparing myself over the possible horrendous fate that could possibly await our favorite Blue Paladin.

But “Why?” you, anonymous tumblr user, will ask.What solid clue can be found in season one that could possibly hint that anything bad could happen to Lance and the Blue Lion in the coming seasons?

Well, simple. It all begins with this lines right here:

                 Foreshadowing or too much Film Theorists? Probably the former                                 but who cares, I’m finishing this post.

Even when I first watched the series the first time around, this line always stuck out to me. I know it’s supposed to lead to a snappy argument with Keith to lighten the area on the serious mood of the scene, but it still felt a bit odd.

Then I began to wonder if it might foreshadow to something coming later in the series. Many of the writers of the new Voltron reboot have written stuff for The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra- both series that have been known to plan ahead and leave foreshadowing to future events in small ways so I wouldn’t put it past the team of Voltron to do the same.

So, the question is, will Lance’s mind because fused with a giant ship in the future? Perhaps with with one…..

     Yeah, stop smiling Blue, this theory doesn’t really end well for you.

Of course, since Blue technically already has her own sentiment mind, this couldn’t work unless something were to happen to the Blue Lion that would make her lose the Quintessence, the life form, that allows her to be more than a plain machine….

….Something along the lines of Zarkon destroying one of the lions as a last ditch effort to prevent Voltron from ever being used against him. 

Because damn it if he can’t have his Voltron action figure than nobody should get the Voltron action figure.

But seriously, wouldn’t this be the best plan all together if everything else fails?Why waste all the time and resources trying to steal the lions when he can just destroy one of them and prevent the so-called ultimate weapon from being used against him in the first place? He was doing an okay job of conquering the universe without the Voltron for the last 10,000 years. 

But why the Blue Lion you of little faith ask? If that’s his last ditch plan, then he could destroy any of them to make it work.

Well you’re right- there is no solid evidence to support the idea that it would be the Blue Lion could be destroyed or permanently damaged if these theory plays out. 

But from a writer’s standpoint, if any of the Lions’ were to be killed or damaged, the one that would hit most with the audience probably be Blue.

Look at it this way- who was the lion that the main characters, and we as an audience first met?

                                             Love at first sight.

That’s right. It was Blue. And by all accords, she is the lion that we spend the most time with solo on screen. We get to see more of her personality and grow attached to her at the same time as the main characters to. She is the Lion we, as an audience, have the most emotional attachment to. If anything were to happen to the lions, it would hit the hardest if it happened to Blue. 

And you can bet that the writers did that on purpose.

              How dare they make me feel emotions for this giant robot cat.

So Zarkon destroys Blue to make forming Voltron impossible. Maybe he absorbs her quintessence to make himself more powerful just as he did with that one planet. So her mechanical body may still be somewhat intact, but her lifeform that makes her a living being is gone. She is a lifeless shell. But of course, Lance, her pilot, would share the same Quintessence as Blue. What if, as the ultimate sacrifice, Lance will give up his own Quintessence, his very life force, and fuse with the Blue Lion, thus in a way, becoming the Blue Lion himself?

                                        Oh look Blue! We’re a match!

But, you argue, could this be possible? Making an AI out of memories like with Alfor and the Castle Ship is one thing, but Lance literally becoming the next Blue Lion? Impossible! Nay! Nay!

Don’t worry, I’d be “naying” in disbelief with all of you if I hadn’t realized that we’ve been watching organic beings becoming sentient warships (aka the Robeasts) throughout the entire first season. Haggar and druids have doing this since the very beginning. For example:

This guy

became this asshole

And Haggar’s weird pet lizard

became a digimon I’m pretty sure

Based on this evidence, I’m pretty sure the Lions of Voltron probably all used to be actual organic beings at one point in time before becoming literal weapons to protect the universe.  Haggar and her druids probably rediscovered this same magic to create their own Voltron Lion wannabes.

But if this theory comes true and Lance does sacrifice himself to become the next Blue Lion, then the question is, who would be the next Blue Paladin?

The answer of course, for those who have watched the original series is….

                                Literally fuck anyone who just said Sven. 

Yes Princess Allura. Who else? Blue is literally one of the key colors that represents her in the series. And I don’t think it is just a coincidence that out of all the paladins it was Lance that Allura first saw when she woke up from her 10,000 year long sleep.

I’m going to ride you one day…And not in the way you’re thinking about, pervert.

You would think that the writers would have had Allura fall into Keith’s arms (who was her love interest in the past series) or maybe Shiro’s (since there seems to be some hinting of romance between them), but no, she falls into Lance’s arms, thus already starting the connection between future pilot and lion.

So there you have it folks! I’ve just tossed in my theory for what might happen in the future of the series. Of course, this is all just plain, fun speculation! And whether you agree with it or not, I’d love to hear what you think about it!

-if the at least the novellas don’t have nessian or Elriel tho I may be tempted to cry.

And that, my friends, is a snippet of the roller coaster if thoughts and emotions I went through. I was too tired to cry during it but my heart was successfully ripped out a few times.

anonymous asked:

Let us fill the gruvia tag with some positivity. What are your top 5 gruvia moments?

It’s the school holidays somewhere isn’t it. I like the idea anon! Let’s spread love and positivity for Gruvia :)) Thanks for sending the ask ^^

5 - Gray stopping the rain/their first meeting

I love that Gray had such a big impact on Juvia. She was blushing and FEELZ everywhere, she is precious. Then the moment she sees the sun is when her heart is forever with Gray Fullbuster, ahhh! I started rooting for her since, so you could say I’m complete Gruvia trash, honestly.

Gray was pretty in the zone of “saving nakama” and they were battling sure, but he was also very confused over her actions. Despite that he said he wouldn’t go easy on her, he was still respectable.

For any ship, I always love where and how it all started. Anime episode 25 and 26 have a special place in my heart, as are manga chapters 56 and 57 :)

4 - Gray saving Juvia from Ultear in Tenrou

Like he told Ultear, he followed her because he was suspicious of how truthful she was. However, he made himself known when Juvia was at risk. Why?

We’ll probably never know unless Mashima treats us to a glorious Gray-POV of everything, which is highly unlikely.

3 - Gray’s flashback to Juvia in Tartarous (Ch. 392)

I love this moment for many reasons. One, he thought of Juvia, and Juvia is separate from the likes of Lucy, Erza and Wendy (by how she was separate and not included in the smaller panels). Two, this is the first time we know/see anything from Gray’s perspective on Juvia through his eyes. Three, the fact that he thought of her the moment he casted iced shell, a spell he knows he won’t come back from. Meaning he knows he means a lot to her, and thus knows she’ll be devastated if he was gone. Something that is showcased again in chapter 522, and in 522 she was among the likes of Ur, Natsu, and Silver, so the distinction that Juvia is special to him is made even clearer.

That said, 392 was the catalyst, so it’s why I didn’t include 522, haha.

I have a tough time deciding the final two moments.

It’s a toss between 416 and 499.

416 - because Juvia reached the decision that she can’t love Gray anymore, that she had hurt him too much. Not in a “yay, I’m glad she’ll be goners” way, but more of a, “you are honestly too precious and too good for this world”. She was ready to give up her feelings for him, was ready for him to hate her and lash out at her. Can you imagine how much courage she’d have to have had in order to say this to him? IN PERSON?

And what makes this better? THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF WHAT SHE EXPECTED HAPPENED.

HE DIDN’T. HE HELL-NAW DIDN’T. HE PULLED HER BACK TO HIM AND HUGGED HER. SAID SORRY AND THANKED HER. AND WEEPED. AND GOSH IT’S THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING. I CAN’T EVEN.

I won’t even get into how great the panels were placed during this scene, the anticipation and tension was well-built, and the fact that it was snowing added a touch of romance to it all. Their moment in 416 was great and all the things I could ever ask for and more.

I was also new to the FT Tumblr fandom back when this was released. I spazzed like nobody’s business when JUST THIS PICTURE ABOVE was spoiled, fangirled like crazy when the full chapter came, and reblogged all the edits I could ever find of 416 after that, it was amazing.

499 - Everything about 499 hurt me. It was angst in the most beautifully tragic way possible, in a SHOUNEN manga of all places.

We expected Juvia to sacrifice herself, it’s how she is and has been her shtick, but for Gray to think and act on a similar train of thought? Sacrifice himself for her? WHOA. If this isn’t the most tragically beautiful way of showing love for one another, I don’t know what I can say to convince anyone otherwise.

Just about everything Gray does and says in 499 made it clear that Juvia is special to him. He loves her but couldn’t tell her in time. His world falls apart and he rages at the man who “killed” her. JUST. ALL. THE. FEELINGS!!!


Honourable mentions:

GMG unison raid - I love the eye sex stares they shared! I loved that Gray initiated and encouraged her. Their unison raid moment was all about teamwork and just how compatible they are, in terms of fighting and magic. (If it weren’t obvious already) Then them STILL holding hands later, ohohoho.

413 Days - a whole omake dedicated to my OTP, the animated episode released on VALENTINE’S DAY. I couldn’t ask for more.

“I’m here with you” and 453 balcony scene - I’m a cheater and I know it, lmao. Oh man, how could I forget about these two moments!? For “I”m here with you”, it’s a very intimate moment, but said with so few words!?!?!?!?! HOW U DO THIS GRAY GAWD. I love that Gray said he is with her, rather than a very general statement along the lines of “nakama”… There’s a difference and I think it started here, or much earlier, I’m not sure.

Then 453, Gray is so honest!?!?!?! He is so frank and chill talking about his feelings!?!?! I LOVE THIS. I loved that Juvia is the person who brought out this side of him. I love that he’s like this WHEN IT’S HIM AND HER. And then him being flirty with Juvia?!?!?!?!? JUST!?!?!? *dies*

I chose to put these two together because both are rare insights into a very different Gray. Gray with Juvia is different from Gray when he’s with his friends.

Silver’s “take care of Gray” - as I mentioned in my shounen tropes meta, it’s everything that solidifies that Gruvia will happen, and it’s the Silver Fullbuster stamp of approval, no doubt about it. and I just really wanted to include Silver somewhere in this ok

Avatar/One-year timeskip - six months living together - A GOLDMINE OF HEADCANONS AND FANFICTION AHOY. Just what is Mashima thinking wasting opportunities NOT doing an omake or flashback to this!?!?! UUUGGGGHHHHHHH. There are so many things!

I cheated and this is actually a top 10 and not top 5, lmao. They have so many moments. So, so many.

1| Two is okay, three is too much.

  Being a witch isn’t what everybody thinks. You’re not doing potion frequently if you’re not a potion master else you can make things explode or worse, which is not a goal. You don’t use a broom to travel, in fact you usually use cabs or hidden portals. Brooms are majorly used to play quidditch and not every wizard is a good player, trust me. And stop being so cliché about witch. Not all of them has a black cat, to be frank it’s quite rare. Owls are quite popular in generals, even though cats, rats and toads are too. Ah, muggles! They think witches are all ugly with strange features and crooked personalities but they would be so surprised if they knew the truth about the wizardry world.

Being a magical being was a lot more than that, actually, and it was the total contrary of the human’s thought. It was basically another reality with many jobs and schools, creatures and of course a lots of magic but it’s still so much more than just that.


You, in this world, were a witch. A proud student from Ilvermorny, school of witchcraft and wizardry in America. It wasn’t as prestigious as Hogwart but to be honest it was all you ever dreamed. Ilvermorny was a second house to you and you made such good friends there that you couldn’t careless about which school was better than the other.

After finishing school at Ilvermorny’s, you decided to study the magical creatures. How fascinating these beasts can be? You wanted to learn everything you could about them and share your knowledge with the world. And so you traveled all around the world to write a book about creatures and their way of being. 

While your trip, you took a boat which was leaving New York to London. Walking a little bit too fast in the crowded area to get on the upper part of the boat, you bumped into someone and dropped your case, felling on your butt afterwards. The person you bumped in, crouched next to you and looked at you worriedly.

“Oh, excuse me miss. I-I think I wasn’t looking where I was going.” The stranger said, struggling to talk without sounding totally nervous.

You grabbed the hand he was holding out for you to take it. He seemed a bit taken aback by your features when you fully raised your head towards him. To that stranger you looked incredibly good and the mysteriousness in your eyes… He couldn’t help but found you fascinating and slightly intimated. 

You brushed the dust out of your grey coat and smiled brightly to him(which caused him to gulp and feel his heart skip a beat), even if deep down you were just as intimidated as him for the same reason he was for you. What a strange duet you two were right now.

“O-oh no really, it’s not your fault, I was walking too fast.”

You lowered your gaze nervous, feeling the sweat slowly forming in your back. Suddenly, you noticed something, in the corner of your left eye, slipping out of the man’s case, The little thing was furry and grey with strange appearance. You instantly recognized the creature and gasped. Was he a wizard? Could you really mention there was a Niffler getting out of his luggage maybe taking all of his precious bright things with it? 

The man noticing your surprised expression, turned his look to the floor. He bit his lip immediately seeing what caught your attention. His Niffler.

Seeing the little creature was about to rob someone’s wallet, you got your wand out slightly.

“Arresto momentum!” You whispered, the spell reaching it victim.

The little creature was slow motioning and you grabbed it, hiding it in your coat’s pocket. To be sure he wouldn’t escape, you gave to the little furry animal a few golden and argent things to occupy it.

The stranger saw the entire scene and was a bit taken aback. Slowly realizing your error, you looked at him eye wide.

“Don’t tell me you’re a muggle?” You murmured, using the British term for the non-magic people. You felt your body tensing up in anticipation.

“I’m not. L-let’s just go a little farther to talk about all this.” He said looking around, noticing some people were giving the both of you strange looks.You relaxed a bit at his statement  as you followed him away of everyone. 

All the afternoon after the incident, you spent it introducing yourselves. You were so happy to meet an other wizard and none the less a wizard that liked magical creatures.

“I’m (Y/FULL/N), I’m glad to meet you Mister Scamander.” You smiled. 

Since then you started travelling with each others. Why? Well my friend, because you had that same passion about creatures. After a while, you decided to combine your researches with his and write a book about creatures. It was going to be called “Fantastic beast and where to find them”.

Soon enough, with all the adventures the book gave you, you became good friends. Your relation kept growing and when Newt finally decided to release the book he wrote with your help about the fantastic beasts, he asked you out. Let me say, you were really happy about it. It was the most beautiful day in your life.

Basically, now, your life is resumed to write about magical creatures, see them and then be back home and do something with your boyfriend. 

Tonight, the activity you were about to do with him was a little bit more special since it was your two years anniversary. The both of you decided to go see that huge quidditch match between two of the best team in the wizardry world, of course one out of the two was your favorite.

You weren’t surprised to see that there was a lot of people at the match but sincerely you didn’t cared. You just focused on you being with your boyfriend and it was perfect just like that. But as you two walked in the stairs for you to get to the place you were assigned, Newt stopped dead in his track.

You turned to see what was wrong and you saw her. The beautiful woman you would saw in a picture inside Newt’s wallet. You use to see that face often when you were traveling and taking care of the beasts with your boyfriend.

You suddenly understand that she is probably someone really important to him if he reacts like that. He never really told you what happened with the girl, he only said her name was Leta Lestrange and that he knew her since the time he went to Hogwart.

You gulped silently as you looked at the girl slowly walking in the crowd. You saw the pain flashing in Newt’s eyes and you just putted a hand on his shoulder. He looked at you, his eyes staring deep in yours, you just smiled sweetly in a reassuring way.

“It’s Leta isn’t it?” You asked.

He nodded and turned his head back to where she went. After a short silence between the two of you, you gently pecked Newt’s cheek.

“Go see her. I know you crave it. I’ll wait for you after the match at the entrance.”

You immediately saw a smile tugging at his lips as he hugged you tightly. 

“See you later then.”

~~~

As the match finished, you slowly raised from your seat and walked to the exit. The wave of quidditch fans was leading you out of the stadium. As you finally were out of the building, you made your way out of the crowd to wait for Newt.

At first, you thought maybe Newt was just caught in the middle of the wave and waited for him, patiently. You tried to distract yourself with minim things such as little families exiting the place while smiling and talking happily about how their favorite team won the final… but as time passed by you remarked there were slowly many to little people leaving and after a while, no one was getting out of the stadium.

The night started to get colder. You shuddered slightly, your coat was at home and you couldn’t go back now because Newt was still nowhere to be seen. You had nothing to tell you what time it was and it seemed to you that you have waited for your boyfriend for years.

Of course this was exaggerated, you’ve been waiting for him for at least 1 hour 15 minutes. Still, this was pretty long. So after so much time waiting for him, you decided to head back home. After all, Newt knew his way to your shared house, if he wanted to hang with Leta so bad to give up on his girlfriend the night of their 2 years anniversary he could easily go back home alone.

And so you went back home feeling slightly like a forgiven piece of crap. How could he ditch you like that? Asked an inner voice but as soon as you asked yourself the question you found an excuse to it. He hadn’t seen his friend in years! Of course he wouldn’t enjoy just a little match with her. But still… on the night of your 2 years anniversary?

You pushed that thought away, giving yourself more and more excuses to his way of acting just until you felt slightly better and reassured. ‘Yeah, he must have missed her. If I wouldn’t see (Your Best Friend name) often, I would do the same thing.Right? Right.’

Feeling convinced by your own excuse, you showered and then went straight to bed. It was almost 1AM and tomorrow you had to go to the Diagon Alley to get some books about dragons and also a gift for your friend’s birthday in a few days. That’s why you needed your sleep more than anything right now but you weren’t able to close your eyes and drift away in the wonderland. In fact, you were once again showered by anxious thoughts about Newt still not being back. Where was he? Was he still at the stadium?
What was he doing? Was he waiting for you like you waited for him a few hours ago? Was he still with Leta?

Ah Leta, you didn’t even knew her and you let your boyfriend ran in her arms. Well not literally but you know what I meant here. You slowly started to feel the remorse. Why had you let Newt go up to someone who is a perfect stranger to you? ’(Y/N), how stupid can you be?! For all you know she can be Newt past girlfriend!’

You sighed and turned around in your bed. And so you did this for hours… but as you were finally drifting in the dream lands, you heard the front door open. Your eyes flung open straight away and you raised on your legs, walking silently to the entrance. As nearer you got to the entrance, louder got some whispers. You stopped to listen what was said. Maybe it wasn’t Newt who entered home, maybe it was some muggles hunting down wizards or whatever could enter your house so early in the morning.

“Promise me we could see each other tomorrow, Newt, please! It’s been so long since last time I saw you… I don’t want to let you go this time plus we have to catch up all those years you were away from me~!” The voice was whining, it sounded like a plead but also like a mirror cracking in your ears. The mirror felt extremely fragile, like it was just about to shatter in pieces.

You held your breath, knowing Newt was silent because he was thinking about what her friend said, or so you thought. Never would you have guessed he was hugging her right now.

“I promise, Leta, I don’t want to let you go either.”

You heard Leta sigh and bid goodbye to Newt as your boyfriend waved back, finally closing the door. You slowly let your body slide down the wall. You hear the mirror break into pieces or maybe was it your heart? You had an extremely bad feeling about what was said. Your heart sunk in your chest. Newt accepted to pass time with her… not you. Her.

Who in the world was she to take your Newt away from you on the weekends?! It was the only time you could really share caring moments with him!

As you were about to move back to your shared bedroom, as whisper echoed close to you.

“(Y/N) what are you doing up so early in the morning?”

anonymous asked:

Ok im like a bit lost when ever people call FinnPoe the cute safe ship? Like did we not watch the same movie? Cuz the one I saw had Poe go through the same force torture bullshit that Rey did with out having the force to psychologically fuck with Kylo like Rey did. And Finn was with the First Order for years being stripped of a identity and who knows what else. Plus no doubt Poe has been through alot of shit being with the resistance for so long. Why do people think he and Finn pt.1

have less emotional baggage than Rey and Kylo Ren? That they wouldn’t suffer the emotional reprocussions of that. I’ve seen a few people point Finn would but like no one points out Poe would too? What am I missing here? Is it cuz those two got away from the first order early in the movie while Reys torture was later in movie? Is it cuz Finn and Poe don’t seem angsty enough for the fandom?pt.2

`For Poe it may be partly be for the reasons you stated, and the fact that the movie didn’t delve into his trauma the way it did with Finn and Rey. I don’t think that fully explains it, though, because while we might not have had many introspective scenes with Poe his pain is all there in the script and in Oscar Isaac’s amazing acting. We see Poe conflicted to leave the village even though he sort of has to go save the galaxy, we see him stay behind to fight despite hopeless odds, we see him so desperate to save Lor San Tekka that he breaks his cover, we see him scream “No, no!” when Kylo Ren gives the order to slaughter the village, we see him beaten bloody, we see him scream in pain and terror under torture, we see him dazed and in pain in the aftermath, we see the wounds he still bears from torture while he leads heroic air raids time after time and… wow. Thinking about what Poe went through always makes me a little emotional.

The point being, we have watched Poe suffer from the very start of the film and saw the physical wounds right up to the end, There is absolutely no reason for anyone to dismiss the mental and emotional effects on him–none, except a serious gap in empathy between him and other characters. As you point out we see this gap with Finn, too, despite the fact that we watched him be traumatized on literally his first appearance and continually afterward.

Finn’s pain is often dismissed and minimized because he’s strong and good enough to handle it or whatever, even though some of the best and strongest people suffer trauma. As for Poe, the idea of him having an internal life doesn’t seem to register on some fans’ radars at all. In both cases their pain is often waved away under the guise of admiring their strength, burying their very real trauma and emotional baggage.

Not only are Finn and Poe both complex characters who have suffered so much, their relationship itself could be as fraught as it is loving. In addition to their individual baggage, I think a lot about the fact that Finn was right next to Slip when Slip fell to Poe’s blaster. It could just as easily have been Finn who was shot. I wonder if that adds to Poe’s many nightmares, and if he wakes up in a cold sweat grabbing for the man he loves, to make sure he’s alive and not… I wonder if Finn has to soothe Poe through the terror to assure him that yes, it is another man, not Finn, who bled out on the desert sands of a distant planet.

I wonder if they have to grapple with the fact that Poe’s actions defending the village left indelible trauma on Finn, and yet Poe was very much justified and would have been right to kill Finn at the village, yet is so very glad he did not. Do they marvel at how fragile chance and love can be? Do they cling the harder to what they have because of the irony of it all, that they met as enemies on a battlefield where either of them could have killed the other (according to the novelization Poe thought Finn was his executioner, and that was my impression as well), yet beyond all odds they are here, breathing in each others’ lives, holding each other close despite the thorns?

But sure Stormpilot is the cute safe ship. I mean, of course they can be, fluff can be all the more precious precisely because there’s so much potential between these two for pain. But to think Stormpilot can only be cute and fluffy? Ha. As if.

Chapter 535 thoughts

Favourite panels: These two panels made me fangirl way too hard!!! especially how amazing it looked in cohesion.

This simply shows Gray once again being a gentleman, a great support and friend to Lucy, once again as he always been!

 Their friendship and BROTP moments are so underrated!! especially when they work together and interract as well as individuals that are natural and comfortable to be around with! I always did say they were the “normal” people of Team Natsu compared to the other strange ones haha!  

We don’t even see Lucy being surprised whatsoever at Gray coming in, because she knows that Gray will protect her and have her back, so that they can reach Natsu. Natsu similarly knows that too that Gray is protecting his girl. The beautiful heartwarming smile from Lucy captured this scene perfectly, as it was fitting when it comes to the atmosphere and context of the bonding moment.

Gray knows full well that Lucy needs to reach Natsu,  so naturally someone who is very close to them, he will do his best to make sure she reaches there in time. 

Gray has always been someone who takes extra good care of women, and make sure their treated well no matter what mostly in general. Showing how nice, genuine of a character he is, always has been, and always will be. 

Sometimes he gets unfairly mis-characterized because of poor misconceptions from some deluded edgy people,, but the truth is he’s always been someone who’s been very kind, warm, and protective of people, and shown so much to worry for them to a point of giving up his life for them  No matter what! 

He gets very flustered when a lady sheds tears, as we seen with his moments with Erza, he never wants that to happen. It makes Gray even more loveable. 

Gray is just too precious~

Granted Gray has shown to be out of character in some scenes (particular due to being corruped by the darkness of  his magic), but this is Gray at his best. It’s a good step upwards, especially with everything that went forward. 

I liked how Natsu mentioned Gray a few times, and Lucy as well, showing their bonds to be very very close. I never understood how there were actually some people that denied that… Guess they must be not be reading the manga properly or something. 

Anyway

I’m well aware that Natsu will be the one to seal Zeref because of them being brothers, and foreshadowing from Tenrou Island arc, but I still want Zeref to be defeated via teamwork, since Natsu will get his time to shine against Acnologia anway, and hopefully we get that from Gray, Lucy, Happy, Natsu vs Zeref. Especially when Zeref is in another league compared to Natsu, especially when he’s powered up.

Also, in other scenes, I’m happy that Acnologia is finally doing something now, crushing Jellal like that was beautiful. Splendid. I don’t care about Jerza, so that made it even more splendid. I was like: “Yes!, finish off that fucker!” xD

On a side note:

I’m just sad that the manga is coming to an end soon, just two volumes left. Sure, this arc isn’t really that good when it comes to poor writing, rushed scenes, anticlimatic,  asspulls, pathetic villian suicides, and displaying out of characterizations, but still we’ve been accustomed to this manga for so long, that it’s only going to be expected that we will miss it when the curtains are down, and the ships sail happy.

Now with that said, I did like the chaprer overall for the most part despite  despite some glaring power inconsistency particularly from Natsu and Zeref

Mikayuu and Ozbert similarities

I noticed thet these two adorable amazing couples : MikaYuu from Owari no Seraph and Ozbert from Pandroa Hearts have quite many in common (and it’s not only the fact that they are super mega perfect ;)) so here some of my observations about these adorable similarities:

I warn that it can have some spoilers :* To not give too maaaaaany spoilers I tried to speak in the most enigmatic way I could about of some stuff but sometimes it was quite impossible. ;) 

♥  The hair colour- in both couples we have blonde boy (Oz and Mika) and dark-haired (Gil and Yuu). 

♥  Ozbert and MikaYuu are childchood friends.

Sorry, I know it’s enough already, but i just can’t resist these cute pies >/////////<

♥ Both ships are in some way a little like Romeo and Juliet. In meaning both boys from MikaYuu and Ozbert are from different, antagionistic “worlds”. Yuu is human, Mika is vampire, and in Ozbert case it’s even more complicated but because of spoilers I will stop only at the fact that Oz is from Vessallus dukedom and Gil from Nightray ;). which both dukedoms are on very bad terms, almost enemies like. ;)  

♥ All these boys: Oz, Gil, Mika and Yuu  were abonded by their parents or was treated very bad by them.

♥ In both ships we have person who is not exactly human. ;)

♥ Both couples got separated  for many years in during which similiarly Mika and Gil made many sacrifices to meet their precious friends again. Overall both couples are like the most loyal ever who could do just everything to protect each other. so this MikaYuu’s scene with line “save you ” and this  Ozbert’s scene with protecting would fit very much to both of them. :D


Gilbert and Mika
♥ Both Gilbert and Mika are gentle, caring angels who always protect their precious friend, no matter what cost it will be. Both of them scareficed themselves for their firends.  To meet their friends again both Mikalea and Gilbert had to go in some way into “dark side”. They want to be together no matter what.:D

♥ Both can be strong, powerful and badass but on the same time they are very sensitive and they blush very easliy. And both of them aren’t too talkative too. ;)

♥ Mika and Gilbert are like the most patient people ever ;) they was waiting sooo many years to see their friends again, and never gave up.

♥ Both Mika and Gil got stabbed by swords by their beloved ones because of the horrible and unfortunate coincidences.

♥ Because of some issues ;) both Mika and Gilbert are not that easy to kill. ;)

♥ When Mika is using sword, this weapon takes his blood, also when Gil was making a contract with chain Raven (which in some way can be seen as “weapon”;))  he also had to give Raven his blood. 

♥ Mika is vampire, and in one of Pandora Hearts official arts- Halloween one Gil wears costume of vampire. :D The cutest vampires ever! :D

♥ By the time when boys were separated from their friends they had to in some ways to become “partners” with some “weirdos” (hahah i’m sorry for this :* Break, Ferid you know that i love you both) Mika with Ferid, and also Gil had his own “Ferid”, though much more friendlier and less pervy, Xerxex Break. ;) 

♥ And we also of course this wonderful character song of Gilbert which would also fits totally for Mika to sing this. :D i mean all the stuff Gil says there about protecting, for not forgiving to the all these things that would hurt Oz ;), for always living only for him and etc. ;) is like the words that Mika could totally sing for Yuu too. :D and awww I would melt then so much. ;) 

♥ Do you remember how poor Mika was injured during the runing away and fight with Ferid? Without too many spoilers let’s say that poor Gil got injured in a little simialr way. poor babies hugs :*

♥ When both Gilbert and Mika finally reunited with their friends (who both were unconscious)  they hold them in a little similiar way- very tender and affectionate:

♥ And… :D can we appreciate the fact how these cutie chibi angels…

…changed into such hotties?! :D (I’m sorry >////<)


Oz and Yuu

Both Oz and Yuu protects their precious childchood friends and treasures them a loooooooot. :D Gil for Oz and Mika for Yuu are like the first warm, loyal people in their quite lonely life.

 Both Yuu and Oz have some really mysterious and probably very dangerous being inside them. ;)

 Yuu made contract with Asuramaru, and Oz made contract with Alice. 

When Yuu and Mika finaly met each other they had “very cute reaction” full of blushing and haha I’m sure that Oz and also Gil would do similar cute face in such situation because here example how cute their blushes can be ;)

♥ Both Oz and Yuu are shorter than their boyfriends. :D 

 ♥ Both Yuu and Oz were carried by their friends, one as princess second in piggyback style. ;) And both were blushing ‘)

♥ Both Yuu and Oz make risky things quite a lot and make their boyfriends worry . ;)

 When Yuu and Oz snap… they can be quite powerful yet very dangerous too. ;)


♥ Ahhh these cuties are too precious :D So i really think they would be great friends in some Owari and Pandora crossover or something. Imagine them on double date where Gil and Mika are simply angels and their boyfriends are melting because their cuteness.  and look at these Pandora official arts, I could imagine MikaYuu like that so much. awww :D

♥ And I think that Ozbert would looks soo good in Mikayuu’s uniforms… :D

…and also Mikayuu would look so amazing in Ozbert’s uniforms from this beautiful art. :D

Thank you very much for reading. :* 

Marissonshipping scenes that are important to me (long post, be warned)

Do you know any sasusaku moments episodes from pre-shippuden ?

YESSS! 

(though I will cite the manga only, because… canon. The episodes you can find by searching the respective chapter on Narutopedia ^.~)

(OMG I’m going to turn this into a master post and reference, thanks for asking the question!)

INTRO

LAND OF WAVES

  • When attacked by ninjas, Sasuke could have chosen to protect either Sakura or Naruto, he defends Sakura (not a big deal, as Sakura was next to the client, but still relevant)

THE PROMISE OF A LIFETIME

I can do Part II if you want too ^_^.

I hope you guys can find this as a useful reference! This took forever to do.

OK WHAT WAS IT AGAIN, THOSE ASSES SAYING KISHI IS SHIPTEASING? That Kishi cannot write romantic bonds, that SasuSaku isn’t well developed? SasuSaku isn’t for the faint of heart for sure XD

Under the cut I’ll place some of the most beautiful panels, in case you’re too lazy to click on the links ;)

anonymous asked:

What's your opinion on Lydaedion??

omg lysaedion is soooo cute but idk what’s gonna happen after the whole thing in eos???

okay what I love about this ship is that they’re both the biggest cinnamon rolls ever. they’re both so strong and loyal of the things they care about. they flirt SO MUCH but are still really respectful and know when they need to stop cause they’re pushing too far. especially aedion, how he understands lysandra and won’t force her into any conversations or situations she’s not comfortable with… which he knows cause I’m pretty sure he’s been through the same thing?? or something similar????? they know where each other’s boundaries lie, and won’t push them until they know the other is ready. I just really adore that.

I personally loved the sea-dragon!lysandra scene and aedion’s ~speech~ to her. tbh I was grinning like an idiot when I read it cause it was so precious too??! like aside from the marriage thing, he was the one who waited for her to transform back for hours until she had enough energy to do so. then he carried her all the way back to where they were staying. idk I just love that.

now with what aelin did… I’m in no way angry at her but it does complicate things?? the fact that lysandra is so loyal to aelin that she would freely give up the freedom she only just got back… it says a lot about her character and tbh I think that’s one of the main reasons Aedion is angry. like yes he’d be really mad that Aelin pulled him into something he wouldn’t of wanted, but I think he’s angry for lysandra too. cause he knows she’s not ready to do that again.

I also wouldn’t of minded aedion being in a gay ship, I mean I adore them and we definitely need the rep, but for what it’s worth… I do really love this ship!

send me a ship and I’ll give you my brutally honest opinion of it

Pro Elizabeth Midford

I made this to combat the saying that “Elizabeth is a spoiled brat who always throws tantrums when she doesn’t get her way.” Which is mainly focused on the chapter 2 ring breaking and almost slapping scene.

I disagree with those choice of words. In my opinion being a spoiled brat and having a moment of acting like one is different.

The chapter where that scene takes place is where we first see Elizabeth. To almost everyone she didn’t come off as a likable character in any way so from then on they still seem to view her as the girl that she acted like in that chapter. Which to me doesn’t make much sense, as this behavior seems to be an isolated incident.

This theory that Elizabeth is a spoiled brat who just throws tantrums whenever something doesn’t go her way has been disproven time and time again by Elizabeth herself and it doesn’t fit in with what we’ve seen or know about her and her family and her interactions with other people.

Going on from chapter 2 the next appearance she makes is in chapter 7 at Aleister Chambers party. The only thing we see her doing is complimenting other girls on how cute or pretty they look in their dresses. We see nothing, but a sweet girl going out of her way to pay a compliment to others.

Chapter 13. We only see glimpses of Lizzy here so not much can be ascertained about her or her character besides the fact that she was saddened by her aunts death.

Chapter 14. This is the chapter where Lizzy and her mother Francis come to “inspect” Ciel and his home, when really they are there for his birthday. When Lizzy arrives she hugs Ciel and gets scolded for it by her mother. Now it would seem like a totally natural thing to hug your fiancé on the day of his birth in greeting, but France’s doesn’t like it. So what does Lizzy do? She apologizes for her behavior. She doesn’t throw a fit. She doesn’t argue. She respects her mothers word. I think a stark contrast can be seen with just a few panels in this one compared to the first time we see Lizzy as well. Such as when Lizzy is riding with Ciel on his horse Ciel asks her to get off so he can hunt better. She merely comments that she doesn’t get to spend a lot of time with him like this. After Ciel shoots his gun he once again asks her to get off and wait with Sebastian she gives no further argument to that, and only notices how high Ciel’s spirits have become. Instead of complaining to Sebastian about being left out, she only states how relieved she is that Ciel is doing better after Madam Red’s death. She didn’t throw a tantrum or become overly upset, she just focused on Ciel feeling better. I think Yana really gives us our first good glimpse of this side of Lizzy and her motivations here, but that is for another time.

Chapter 37. We do see Elizabeth in teary hysterics in this one. But we also see that a good portion of the mansion is now gone. I don’t think that’s too much overreaction.

She shows disappointment for not being able to go on a boat ride with Ciel, but doesn’t dwell on it and instead focuses on something happier, like being able to make new clothes. She does step over what Sebastian is trying to say, but we aren’t debating over this particular part of Elizabeth’s personality. Being overenthusiastic and somewhat pushy is different from being a spoiled brat and throwing tantrums when she doesn’t get her way.

She does get mildly upset when Ciel isn’t paying attention to anything she’s saying, but is that really a reason to dislike her? You’d be hard pressed to find anyone, manga character or not, who didn’t get exasperated over someone ignoring them when they are trying to talk to them. She could have made a bigger deal about it, but she doesn’t.

The only things she does for the rest of the chapter are try to help Ciel get dressed and worry over him and his health.

Chapter 50. Elizabeth does get very upset in this chapter, saying how sorry she is that Sebastian lied about staying with him forever. I don’t think this is any sort of display like the one you are speaking about. She is just worried because she knows how much Ciel has already lost and is upset over him losing another constant in his life. She then declares she’ll be with him forever. That seems like a dedicated, caring person to me. Not a spoiled brat. Not a tantrum thrower.

I will skip over chapter 51 for right now because I’m going to use it to make a point later on.


Chapter 52. She greets Ciel with a teary hug because she thought that there was no way he would be coming and she thinks its all for her-I am aware it’s not completely for her-and is overjoyed at the surprise.

She tells Ciel to escort her to the party happening in a few days. Is it pushy or being spoiled and bratty to expect your fiancé to escort you to a party? Not really.

Going over to chapter 53 we see Elizabeth trying to give Ciel his piece of cake that she got especially for him. She follows him deeper into the ship because she doesn’t want to be left alone in the dark.

She meets back up with Ciel stating that she just really wanted him to eat it. It’s not odd to want the things you go out of your way to do to be acknowledged by the person you’re doing it for. That doesn’t give off a spoiled attitude at all. In fact if there’s any spoiling going on it’s from Elizabeth to Ciel. She’s not throwing a big temper tantrum about it either so I still am not seeing any proof of that theory.

The next chapters produce nothing as well. Till we get to chapter 56 we don’t really see much centering around Ciel and Elizabeth as individuals. When Ciel tells Elizabeth to take off some of her clothes she refuses. When he calls her silly she refuses vehemently. Why is this all being done? It is obvious that Yana is setting up for the coming chapters where she explains primarily Lizzy’s background. This cute aesthetic has been something that she has been working to maintain since she was a little girl. She has been taught by madam red that she is always to be an unknowing angel surrounded by pretty things, Ciel has shown her that if she were to act strong he would be frightened of her, and I’m sure society and the standards for women at that time had a big influence on her as well. So I don’t see it as a show of being spoiled or even a show of stupidity. Once again nothing to show her being a spoiled brat.

Then Ciel reacts by going to tear off the clothes on her. Is that a better reaction? No. But in the end Lizzy says she’s sorry and Ciel calms down. Elizabeth apologizes about being so stubborn and even Ciel apologizes for his behavior! That is something major because we all know Ciel is not one to apologize. This shows both of them acknowledging that they were in the wrong and I think it’s a show of some character growth as I will point out later.

Chapter 57. In this chapter we see something extraordinary happen to Lizzy’s character. Yes, her sword fighting ability is a major reveal and one of my favorite parts of the manga. However I think some people miss the really amazing thing in this chapter. Lizzy’s willingness to throw away her cute appearance. All for Ciel. This shows great maturity all in itself. Something that she has worked almost her whole life trying to maintain, something that is so deeply ingrained into her brain since childhood, something that she put above wading more easily through the rising waters that she could drown in. Ciel is too important to her, too precious to ever let be endangered just for some aesthetic. She saw those sabers on the wall, she took the risk, and basically threw away an image of herself that she had spent a lifetime trying to create, because she was strong enough, mature enough, to know this was no time or place for that. That is not a spoiled brat. That is a strong girl.

Chapter 58. This chapter is the first one we see centered around Lizzy and I think it’s a fascinating chapter. We see so much more about her motivations and learn more about her background. We see how she got it stuck in her head that being cute is better, being weak is best.

We can tell from just the deflated look on her face after she wins that match in the fencing hall that she doesn’t enjoy this. She just won, she should look pleased, happy, proud of herself. But she doesn’t. We then cut to a scene with her arguing with her mother about practicing fencing and Francis slaps her for questioning it. She embraces her and says that it’s for her sake and his, besides Francis knows that dangerous things lie in wait for her daughter and she wants her to be prepared. She asks Lizzy if she understands and she doesn’t seem to argue any farther. That’s a lot to put on a little girl, but she just accepts it.

Moving on to after Ciel has returned we see Lizzy excited to go out with Ciel. She wants to look cute in the heels her father had bought her for winning the match. However when Paula says that she has grown again Lizzy has a shocked face. Paula tries to comfort her, but Lizzy doesn’t cheer up. She decides to wear the low heeled shoes instead. Why does she do this? Because Lizzy has already realized that Ciel is shorter than her, and not as strong. She has already made the decision to protect him, but also keep up her cute aesthetic for her and his benefit. She has realized that Ciel is trying to be seen as an adult and it wouldn’t look good if his fiancé seemed more mature and grown up than he. So she puts away those cute shoes she was so excited to wear and chooses low ones so Ciel can seem more adult like in comparison. Spoiled brats are selfish, and that act was nothing, but selfless. Till this day Lizzy does not wear heels.

After Grell and Ronald leave and they find out that Ciel can’t walk on his own Lizzy offers to carry him on her back. Ciel is shocked and embarrassed to hear this. Lizzy starts to panic because now she thinks Ciel will hate her for showing the strong side of herself. But nothing else really happens to show anything abhorrently negative about her character.

She gets taken out of the action by Sebastian when she wants to stay with Ciel to protect and be with him. She knows how dangerous the situation is, she’s just gone through a lot, but she’s willing to brave more for Ciel. Selfless. Even Edward remarks how hard it must have been for her when he sees her sabers.

Chapter 66. The Easter Chapter is centered mostly around the eater egg hunt and Lizzy is only there because she wants to spend a holiday with Ciel just as they had done when they were kids. She shows no signs of being a spoiled brat or anything. Just over enthusiastic once again. Which I think worked because in the middle of it we can’t deny that Ciel got some sort of positive satisfaction from the whole thing.

I’ll refrain from going over her further manga appearances because their is no evidence there that she is a spoiled brat and not a tantrum is seen in all of it. It would just be me saying, “Here Lizzy is, showing no signs of being a brat, being spoiled, or throwing a tantrum. Just her wanting to spend time with him and cheer him on.”

Going at it from another point the whole claiming Lizzy is a spoiled brat who throws tantrums just doesn’t fit when you consider who her parents are. Now there are certain things that will obviously be given to her because of her social standing and her families wealth. She’s not at all likely to go hungry, she gets lavish clothing, she gets to go to fancy parties. But that’s no different from any other noble at the time. That was what was expected of her class. To be truly spoiled I think there would have to be a lot more handed to Lizzy and looking at the personalities of her parents that just doesn’t add up.

Alexis Leon Midford. He is shown to be much more lighthearted and easygoing person than his wife. He shows other tendencies that are much like Lizzy’s by grabbing Ciel and declaring how happy he is to have such a cute nephew. So we can see some similarities between them. However he is also leader of the British knights and has shown to take that very seriously, which is paralleled by how seriously Lizzy takes her role as “wife of the queens watchdog.” Now he may seem the easy going type to shower his daughter with things, but the only canon time we’ve seen him give her anything of extravagance was when he purchased her those high heels. He did so as a reward for her winning her fencing match. That’s not spoiling, that’s rewarding hard work. The only other time is when he made those Easter eggs for Lizzy, which doesn’t scream being spoiled.

Frances Midford. We get a sense of Frances before she even appears in the manga. In chapter 14 Sebastian informs Ciel of his Aunt and fiancé’s impending arrival. To which Ciel starts to panic and order quick preparations because it’s aunt Frances. That right there signals that she’s not the most laid back aunt in the world.

Then we actually meet her and she appears to be a collected, elegant noblewoman with a penchant for arriving early. Which is true. What is one of her first actions? To scold Lizzy for hugging Ciel. She calls it “improper.” That seems pretty uptight behavior especially since this is where she used to live and Ciel is her fiancé.

Then Frances chastises both Sebastian and Ciel for their “indecent” looks and fixes it. We then get a brief description of her as “someone who adheres strictly to rules, and abstains from temptations and desires.” Does that sound like someone who would spoil or ever let her children be spoiled? In fact it would make more sense if she were more strict with her children. In all the times we’ve seen Frances she has always been composed and levelheaded, with an iron first when it comes to acting proper and civilized. I think that is how her house is run as well.

And as for the tantrum throwing, Frances has chastised Elizabeth twice for merely hugging Ciel, and slapped her for questioning her fencing lessons-though to be fair that was an attempt at showing her how important the lessons were to her and Ciel’s well being in the long run-can you honestly tell me she would stand by and let Elizabeth throw a tantrum over something that she didn’t get? I apologize, but that is just ridiculous. Frances would not stand for that.

My final point will be to showcase what I think was an attempt at Yana to see how immature both Elizabeth AND Ciel acted and later on paralleled their growth.

When Lizzy broke that ring it is true that she was being too overdramatic and wasn’t showing maturity in that moment. That’s not really something to debate. Her motivations for it are another thing, but that is not relevant here. However in what situation would it be acceptable for Ciel to strike out PHYSICALLY at Elizabeth for breaking a ring? Were her actions right? Absolutely not. We’re his actions right? Absolutely NOT.

It is true that it is a precious family ring-which Elizabeth was unaware of at the time-but Elizabeth herself is a close family member that has been with Ciel since childhood, if not infancy considering their close ties and close age. He should prioritize Elizabeth above a ring, showing that he still needs to mature more.

Sebastian stopped him because he knew it would be wrong of him to do something like that, and Sebastian doesn’t often directly interfere with Ciel’s actions. He had to play peacemaker between the two, stopping Ciel, and explaining the situation to Elizabeth.

Elizabeth may have acted immature and improper, but Ciel did as well. An argument could be made that Ceil is just as immature as Elizabeth, just in different aspects. He is still thirteen after all. Even Sebastian stated this in chapter 14 and something along these lines several times throughout the series. “The head of the household that I serve is a child. Yet at the same time he is also the ‘master.’” Is what Sebastian said to Frances while asking her to be his adult role model “In order to keep him in check.” He also mentioned how Ciel needed to eat some humble pie because he had adopted childish notions of “I can never loose.”

There is a good parallel to the whole chapter 2 scene in chapter 56. Which I think is the second show case of their growth from that time.

The first showcase I believe takes place in chapter 51. Elizabeth shows up and excitedly declares to Ciel that they will be going on a trip in April and that they want him to come. She starts to talk about it, but he just shoots her down right away. She tries to talk him into it, but he explains that it just isn’t possible with his work.

She’s disappointed, but doesn’t argue. She’s teary eyed, but doesn’t start bawling or throwing a tantrum. Then Ciel does something totally unexpected. He says that he will go on a trip with her somewhere close as long as it’s only for a few days. We know canonically that Ciel hardly EVER compromises, but for Lizzy he did. He knew it would make her happy even though we know he doesn’t enjoy trips that much. It was very mature of him to step up and do that.

Combined with chapter 56 I think that showcases how much they have matured in that short amount of time and can now handle each other in a much more positive way.

I know some of that seemed to go way off topic, but I thought it not only necessary to show that Lizzy was not a spoiled brat who throws tantrums when she doesn’t get her way, but also to show that she is, quite in fact, the opposite.

If you aren’t willing to change your perception of Lizzy then there is not much I can do about that. You are entitled to your opinion as I am mine. I just wanted to show why I don’t believe that is true about her at all and why I quite enjoy her character for being the opposite.

My Thoughts on the Owari no Seraph Finale

There’s always an episode or chapter in the life of a shipper that you can say “This is it! This is the one that’s won me over”. I can safely say this was that kind of episode for me. The one that turned MikaYuu/YuuMika from a casual ship to an OTP. Not only did I find it really suggestive, I also think the way these boys’ feelings for each other were reinforced was absolutely perfect.

First of all, Yuu crying tears of joy after he wakes up and realizes Mika is alive. How dare you make something so freaking adorable?! I think it was so beautifully animated, the way he moves his head around and his eyes glint and finally he starts crying. Nonono too adorable, too much for my heart. I actually teared up because it was like this boy’s love for Mika (even if it’s still platonic at this point, it’s love you can’t deny that) was pouring out of the screen.

It only kept escalating from there. Yuu didn’t even care if Mika turned out to be a foe. For Yuu, Mika’s life is much more precious than that.

But still, I don’t think Yuu meant he wouldn’t give a shit if Mika was “evil”. Yuu knows Mika, so it’s not like he wouldn’t believe Mika had a reason for doing what he’s doing. And even if he had the wrong reasons, I’m pretty sure Yuu believes he can reach out to Mika at any given moment. So I think even if Mika was walking down the wrong path, Yuu has faith in him and believes Mika will come back to him.

Also, there’s something I’d like to point out. I could be wrong, since Shinoa’s sister died so this could’ve been triggered by her memories of her sister, but considering the idea of her apparent crush on Yuu was floating around, this is the impression I got. Shinoa smiles when Yuu tells her that Mika being alive is enough for him right now, but then she looks down (looking kinda sad?) and remembers staring in the direction Mika had been taken away.

Like I said, the impression I got, is that maybe she’s considering their feelings for each other as something other than platonic? In the subs she says “Yuu”, but if you listen to her she actually says “Yuu-chan” referring to the way Mika calls Yuu. So to me it’s as if she’s noticed how close they are and how important they are for each other. And I think she was looking sad because of her possible crush on Yuu and realizing there’s someone else he considers precious to him? Yeah, I know it may have something to do with her sister, but the way it played out between the mention of her possible feelings for Yuu, it just strikes me as something else. Just another suggestive scene if you’d like to call it that.

Then of course there’s the scene that completely won me over and made my heart swell with otp feels.

First of all, Yuu, how dare you?! I mean, did you see that?? “If he’s alive, I can do anything.” COME ON! It’s like, that line makes it seem as if finding out Mika is alive gave something back to Yuu. Something he thought he had lost when Mika “died”. It’s as if Mika’s the source of Yuu’s strength, he’s someone irreplaceable to him and stab me in the heart because that’s just precious!

And if I thought the scene couldn’t get any gayer, boy was I wrong. The background music sounded like something they play in movies when there’s a couple having a romantic dinner at a restaurant or something. They’re both looking at the moon, thinking about each other. For a moment I was like “AM I LOOKING AT A TELENOVELA OR SOMETHING?!”, because it felt like a cliche’d romantic scene, but of course I wasn’t about to complain. Be gay all you want, my lovelies. I encourage it!

Then, the cherry on top…

HOW FREAKING DARE YOU GIVE ME ANY MORE FEELINGS THAN I ALREADY HAD?! That forehead boop that forehead boop that forehead boop!!!!! *explodes* I didn’t expect that scene from the opening to be recreated this way, so it was such a pleasant surprise. And just knowing that at that moment they were thinking about each other, maybe wishing they could be exactly like that, so close to each other… my heart jumps like crazy.

The determination in their eyes… *explodes again* They both believe the other needs saving, so one thing’s for sure: Mika believes Yuu can only be safe by his side, and Yuu believes Mika can only be safe by his side. It’s like a vow to protect each other, support each other, and love each other unconditionally. No matter where their paths take them and no matter what happens, they know they belong together. *starts crying*

Ah, fuck. I can’t say I wanted this, because honestly, another OTP to obsess over was the last thing I needed. But I loved this episode way too much, so I don’t regret anything. I know how falling hard for a ship goes, so sign me the fuck up, I’m on my road to MikaYuu hell.

Now onto find good fanfiction and start reading the manga. Hell yeah.

abbyfins  asked:

Hey :) *SPOILERS* so in your list about RTTE you mentioned that one of the characters was hinted to be bisexual. Who were you talking about? Because I'm now seeing both Snot and Ruff as bi now because of bonecrusher and ruff flirting with heather

BISEXUAL CHARACTER REPRESENTATION PRAISE VALHALLA PRAISE THE ALLFATHER!

Yes yes yessss. Ruffnut certainly feels like she is flirting with Heather. I did not get a platonic vibe. There was one moment in particular that didn’t feel platonic. There certainly could be something bisexual about her flirtations, though I would love to have more evidence on the matter. 

The character I think who is less debatably bisexual is Snotlout. Initially I assumed that the writers simply wished to depict a humorous, over-the-top platonic mancrush. Even Astrid’s comment, “Did Snotlout just fall in love with Fishlegs?” could be interpreted in a comical BROTP-sort of way. After all, as much as I crave queer representation in media, I like to try to be conservative on labels and say it’s only there when it’s pretty obviously there.

So I was going for the “extreme mancrush” interpretation.

And then this happened.

No one is telling me that kid is straight now.

Well, you can try. That’s fine.

But I’ll keep fighting tooth and nail and claw for canonically bisexual Snotface Snotlout Jorgensen.

Here’s how I see it:

Snotlout is a young man with commonly intense, passionate, over-the-top emotional reactions. He can be a bit histrionic at times, but the point is that he’s always reacting to something sincerely from his heart. Snotlout cannot hide his emotions, after all. He wears his heart on his sleeve. When he’s angry, he’s obviously legitimately angry. When he’s feeling insecure, he can try to brag it off, but his voice falters and he’s really quite obvious. When Snotlout is feeling sad or frightened, he tries to mask those emotions, too, but anyone within twenty miles of him can tell what he’s actually feeling and thinking.

This means that this moment where Snotlout acts in the moment, kissing Fishlegs on the cheek, is a genuine emotional action. It might be impulsive. It might be a bit gushy and overreactive. But it’s sincere and represents what he’s actually thinking and feeling.

And both Fishlegs and Hiccup sense that this moment is unique. Hiccup calls it “weird,” and I don’t think he’s saying that to be heteronormative talking about the fact one man just kissed another on the cheek. Hiccup is saying that it’s “weird” because usually Snotlout is not this gushy and sincere. Snotlout flirts a lot with women, but it’s often very self-focused, pompous, and braggart-ly. Even with a woman he’s really hit on deeply, he has never grabbed someone’s face, stared them in the eye, and then kissed them. So what they mean by “weird” is that Snotlout is being extremely intense, and they could not have anticipated such an emotional, mushy scene from him. It might be a humorous moment, but it’s still Snotlout’s legitimate heart we’re seeing here and should not be passed off as simply a comical gag.

Someone could try to say Snotlout is just being intense in his platonic bromance. You could probably get away with it had he not kissed Snotlout. But altogether, we have too much going on and adding up in the body language department. Hands holding tenderly onto Fishlegs’ cheeks and then yanking him closer when he tries to pull away. Staring at him intensely eye-to-eye and drawing his face so close their lips are almost touching. And then giving a very meaningful, very firm kiss on Fishlegs’ cheek.

And if that doesn’t convince you, just pair it up with the really mushy, corny dialogue. “I’m just thinking of what could have been. You broke my heart, Thor, you broke it right in two.” *kiss*

Even someone like me, who doesn’t tend to ship anything, who doesn’t try to dig deep to find underlying queer representation, has to slam his hands down on the desk and say, “Dude that kid’s bi.” Sure, they’re not going to say he is, but the scene screams enough to me. So I said RTTE “hints” at him (and potentially Ruffnut!) being bi. But what I mean to say is… I totally believe he’s bi.

Just

look

at 

him.

My precious little bisexual baby. <3

One Piece 850 thoughts

Which can be summed up as: could we have seen this coming? Yup. Did I see this coming? Nope. But let’s say things in order. 

The request covers do not have an intended  meaning, but Oda never chooses them casually, I think.

The face Smoker, a heavy smoker, is making here, is just too relatable to the one face Sanji, a heavy smoker,  makes in the last page. And it doesn’t tell us anything more, but it underlines the concept, I think. 

As when we last saw them, Bropper - sorry, that’s his name officially now - and Carrot are doing fine. Forcing your enemies to do something you want is nothing new in this saga, though I think they’ll have more luck than Nami - essentially because WE NEED some luck right now. 

But things are being set in motion eventually. As you may know, Sanji is one of my favorite characters. And I’ve been hating this depressed version of him, even more so when he started getting all lovey-dovey around Pudding. Please. No. 

His cockiness, his nerve, his cunning mind are also what made him attractive to me as a character. And the last we saw any of tis was when he was confronted by hus brothers, when he stood up against his father, when he defend Cosette - a trait even Reiju appreciated, as they are closer than with the other siblings, though he wouldn’t admit it. 

Sanji ever refused to enter a fight? No way. He, who competed with Zoro all the time, now is discouraged and empty as a shell. I’m not saying he could have done much differently - of course not, that’s the whole point of the saga -, but … it’s the totally opposite of himself. 

This … is a mask. And the fact that what’s hidden behind is possibly worse, doesn’t make it any more pleasant to witness. I’ve always said since the very beginning of this now rightfully infamous “year of Sanji” that I hoped the Cook would now finally change his weakness for women into sensibility. Because there are two aspects to it:

  • the gentleman attitude, taught to him by Zeff, very likable, especially in these times when we hear every. single. killed. about women being killed by men. 
  • and the lovey dovey attitude, which is an expression of the mask above and which I personally mostly dislike - except, of course, when it involves my Navig… my ship. 

  Not to mention that Sanji never disliked making food for rats, being them metaphorical like Gin or actual animals… where does this newly found royalty-like come from? From the stressful situation and it’s not going to last. Thanks Kami-sama. Oda using the exact same expression is not a coincidence for sure. 

Then we get to my favorite part. Honestly, from the get go I’ve never liked Luffy as much as I’m doing now. The peak was the fight with Sanji, but it never gets any lower. This attitude he has here is actually quite trope-y: classic shounen hero. Take Naruto or Ichigo or Guts or Gon or whatever, he’s being any of them right now. But in particular, he reminded me of Gon, of when he said something along the lines of “I’m not going to die here.”

And speaking of “not going to die here”…

Pedro and Humpty Dumpty Tamago  are at their final showdown. Nothing to say if not that the Baron’s fghting style reminds badly of Sanji’s. Would like  showdown of the two of them - plus, a Cook against a Egg, lol. 


Well… would have liked it. But…

… nothing in bold is ever to be left  not analyzed. We know 

  • that Pedro risks to die very badly, both for the situation, for the fact that if caught a second time, Mama won’t let him go for sure, but especially, for the fact that he’s missing 50 years of lifespan. 
  • the situation overall is very bad - Luffy knew from the start that even he couldn’t dare face a yonkou by himself just yet, he promised to his crew on Zou that he wouldn’t fight Big Mom -: I am starting to think they may not make it all together in one piece - sorry, couldn’t resist - out of here. 

Zepo, Pedro’s former companion and I’m betting my Christmas gifts also Bepo’s relative, died for 70 years of his lifespan being taken from him. In OP there are exceptionally old people like Kureha, but most have normal lives, of 80 years  in average. And if we can assume the minks to have indeed similar lives to humans, as Pedro must be 30 at the very least, he could die anytime now, if 50 years were taken from him. And yes, I know I’ve been repeating my whole life that Oda never kills anyone - but I’m changing my mind. So, Pedro may not mind dying - just not there. In front of the Poneglyphs maybe? I can very easily see him delivering the precious stones to Robin with his last breath - and I can even more easily see myself shedding rivers of tears at this. 

And speaking of “changing my mind”, someone is about to change his very abruptly …

And in particular

Cook? After all the time and ink I’ve spent to defend you? After I’ve answered in detail to questions such as “how can you, as a woman, like Sanji”*? STOP IT NOW. 

*yes, it really happened. A dude on reddit, geez. 

I can’t wait for this scene to be animated. I love how she seems to be crying and then

SO COOL. I mean, yeah, hating her and all - so much, especially for hurting my two favorite Vinsmoke kids -, but it’s cool. I can’t wait to know what her powers are and how she was able to reduce Reiju, who must obviously be very strong, in that state. I’m hypothesizing hypnotization - sorry again - with that freaky eye of hers, something that maybe makes unable to fight back. 

And here everybody was thinking she would kill herself. Like seriously: I read the comments on r/OnePiece when 848 came out and everyone was so sure of it. Personally I thought it would be too dark … well, the reality isn’t much brighter. 

Unfortunately Sanji did nothing to her… YET.

As I said, I hope he finds some kind of contract clause in his promise with Zeff so that he can give her what she deserves. 

Reiju! That face in the penultimate strip kills me. She, the strong woman, reduced to this…? And how? And why does she have blood on her legs only? Is it the Jello that makes her bleed? Why did Pudding have to toy with the two only deserving-to-live Vinsmokes? I would have been enthusiastic to hand her Niji or Yonji. 

I like this choice, though, because even if it wasn’t for Nami and Luffy, I’m sure Sanji wouldn’t let them harm the first person who ever helped him - not to mention that his sister is a woman, so it falls perfectly within Zeff’s code. 

Now, for all the rest: we knew something shocking had to happen. It would be shocking. It had to be. But this shocking?

It’s true that a lot of people had anticipated this. At its time I had brought forward that Pudding’s third eye would have to do with a second personality of her,  related to her eye, which is … Kinda the case here, but not really, because she’s fully aware of it apparently. Rather than a double personality, a double façade.

It did seem strange to me that out of all the people they could randomly meet in Choco Island, they’d find the fiancée of their friend. Way too lucky, even for a manga. And that out of all the mad children Big Mom has, she’s the only one not crazy= I had advised against it majorly because it would be JUST TOO CRUEL TO SANJI. well, guess what, past-me? Oda is a jerk to Sanji. Even more that I already thought. 

I’ve heard some suggest that Sanji will change, like he did with Viola.

 First of all, he didn’t change Viola: she was a good person to begin with, forced to do bad stuff. But Pudding’s no good person and she  does no good stuff at all and enjoys it quite a bit too. But even if this weren’t the case… no need to change it. 

Good, then bad, then Good again? no, this isn’t a character meant to be that complex, and it would make so utterly  pointless all the shock of today’s chapter. Whole Cake Island is made in its entirety of irredeemable characters. I think that’s just the point, they are bad to the core. The little girl wanting knives to amputate her stuffed animals? That kind of bad to the core. 

But why is is shocking? Because Oda is the master of foreshadowing, of leaving tips here and there like marzipan crumbs. And he left us this:

which was meant to make us feel empathic towards her. This is a scene only the reader could see, not from a character’s internal POV, let’s say Sanji’s for exaple, but also Nami’s or Luffy’s could do. Oda doesn’t usually do this, he doesn’t directly involve the reader’s POV in the understanding of the plot.  Others do - let’s say Togashi again? Kentaro Miura? Kishimoto? -, but him…  which is why I am not scrapping the double personality theory just yet. 

And given this, it’s just another reason Pudding won’t change: if she has a second evil personality, it stays dominant, and if it’s her whole horrible personality, it stays that way just the same. This scene above was drawn explicitly to make us feel bad for the poor girl and then super shocked today. It couldn’t be wasted ink. 

Geez, It was a while since I last wrote so much,and I still have so many half thoughts and ideas in my mind. It’s just what One Piece does to me and that’s why I love it. 

EDIT: forgotten thought n#1. There’s always lighting when Sanji and damsels are involved.

It was Nami who created the lightning…

… by whose light it seemed that his engangement to Pudding

would be a good thing - NOPE.

And there’s a lighting now that he breaks it. 

Yup. This pain is cathartic cook. Overcome it and kick asses already please. All the good ladies require you do it. 

Shadowhunters Malec

So, we got a new Malec sneak peek. And, as always, some harmful opinions have been expressed. Lately, after every new Malec scene there’s a lot of people saying that Malec is moving too fast, that Magnus is a predator, that Alec doesn’t show emotion and is completely ignoring Magnus. Some of you know, but for those who don’t, there are some people who have a large audience, and can therefore influence many other people, especially because most of the audience is very young. They are not the only one, mind you. The things that they say are not only harmful for the show, but for some other things as well, things that this show is trying to teach us. So, I’ve decided to give my own opinion on this latest scene (and maybe some other things as well).

(spoiler alert, the video is here, gifs are mine)

imnotfittobeahero  asked:

Hiya! I hope you're doing good big sis Sori! I was, maybe beause I was already having a bad day, getting really nervous & upset about the new RR novel. I was wondering if you had an outlook or comfort to give me? You should get that IR post done too!

B-big sister? Ah! I’ll be your big sister for sure! I’ll be everyone’s big sister! I will protect you from an author that lost his love, from the fandoms whose immature view on love can ruin so much, I will protect you from all! So any IR fan who wants and needs anything a big sister should give, here I am!

Now allow your big sis Sori to shed some levity on this situation.

Let me just assume that being upset is a direct result from the faux enthusiasm of the IchiHime and ‘RenRuki’ fandoms.

Let me rephrase. I have yet to see an IchiHime fan who is a genuine RenRuki fan…. I have yet to see an IchiHime fan who is a genuine Ichigo and Orihime fan.

When you fucking spent every waking second prior to chapter 686 calling Rukia “prepubescent,” trying to take away her relevance with your “Kubo could have picked any one else,” reducing her powers to “chucking ice,” calling her fights and defining moments lackluster, pretending she’s weak, convincing your idiotic fandom that Rukia’s past and pain doesn’t apply because you don’t want her to be able to handle Ichigo’s, calling her manly so you can pretend Ichigo doesn’t see her as a woman, saying she isn’t worth Ichigo’s equal etc. you’re not a fan. You’re an asinine schmo and transparent on your beliefs. They can call her ‘Queen’ all they want, but they  don’t give a shit about Rukia and if they’re pushing this “terrible, barely worthwhile woman” to Renji, they don’t care about him either.

Don’t worry or sadden your heart, my little sister. Don’t you see how freakin’ insecure this kind of behavior is? Just think about how many of those exact same ‘fans’ making you nervous now, wasted their perpetually pissed off brain cells slaving away at many a sizable post begging trying to convince themselves and their fandoms that novels like The Honey Dish Rhapsody and the Death Save the Strawberry are fodder material in respects to IchiRuki. Now this new novel comes out and they’ve realized the error of their ways? Ha, no!

Make no mistake, they are not happy because their precious ship may be getting a novel. However, are they pissing their pants because an opportunity to push Rukia away from Ichigo has presented itself? Yeah. And quite plainly that’s where the ‘happiness’ comes from.

Let’s forget their hypocritical ways and focus on The Honey Dish Rhapsody for a little.

In particular, I really enjoyed Ichigo cleaning Rukia’s dish and ranting about the eleventh divisions terrible, horrible lack of table manners while Rukia, being so at peace, was lulled into death-deep sleep on the counter. When Ichigo turned back around and thought “What a happy expression you have there…”  and certainly don’t forget the “He [Ichigo] felt deeply that… he was so fortunate to have come to Soul Society, that he was so fortunate to have something to protect.” He thought this looking at a happy again Rukia (an emotion she hadn’t felt in a good 40 some years mind you).

What about Ichigo waking Rukia to go sleep comfortably in her room by shaking her shoulder and “feeling incredibly happy.” ? Followed by the relatable actions of a grumpy after being woken up Rukia. “Bastard! What do you think you’re doing!”

That’s not too shabby.

Or in Death Save the Strawberry (a title Kubo created):

When Orihime was asking Ichigo about his ‘condition’ and trying to reverse him back to a state before his powers left (did you hear that? It was the sound of my tears hitting the ground. Orihime so earnestly tries). That moment revealed to us,  an Ichigo living so deep in his own utter self-damnation and going through the inescapable misery of once again feeling useless because he lost an immense piece of what allowed him to feel worthwhile. His need and what he felt his purpose of existence should be just…wasn’t an option he could carry out anymore.

This scene was very reminiscent of the sadness Keigo brought up to Ichigo, but instead of Rukia being the focus, Ichigo’s powers were. This shoud remind us  that Ichigo is so, SO kind. Y,es it was terribly easy to see that his smile was fake, but he still tried hard (so hard) to pretend he was okay. Down to the “Don’t worry! Thanks for trying your best.”

Sweet berry boy.

Then, Orihime sort of curled up and put her head in her knees in disappointment and sadness, because as she thought “I want to help but I can’’t do anything for him..” and ‘I didn’t intend to put that expression on his face!” Then, Rukia comes out, rests hands on Orihime’s shoulders and:

“…..Ichigo has always fought in order to protect something. That is his action’s philosophy, as well as his foundation stone. If it’s a dispute between two people without any special powers, I’m sure Ichigo doesn’t fall behind in that respect. I think that there are lots of people he can protect in that respect too…However, he has now come to know. The existence of people he can’t save with just the power of a human being….For Ichigo whose will to protect is stronger than anyone else’s, it must be an unbearable pain…. Leave it to me.”

Rukia’s been watching Ichigo and caring for him in any way she could manage. She thought “I want to help him. Without any moments delay, by any means necessary.”

His pain must have been hers too. If they share destiny, they share the pain the comes with it.

And there we go again. It’s Rukia, always Rukia that manages to do something for Ichigo. Anti’s can preach all their crap about how the other Shinigami helped, but without Rukia, can you honestly say they would have wanted to?

Save for Rukia, they all, ALL of them, doubted Ichigo. And though it took dramatic measure, so did Ichigo’s human friends.

The Fullbring Arc wasn’t just for sad coincidence or to make a heart-breaking few chapters. It was to show where,how, and what makes Ichigo shine.         S-H-I-N-I-G-A-M-I.

You know what? For anti’s that claim he only wants power…he had power, a form of it.

But Rukia, who cares for Ichigo and places his well being and happiness above the value of her own life, above the feelings of happiness she finally experienced in being with Ichigo and company in the world of the living, above the well being of her former best friend and the prestige of her brother, above the chances of her brother being dealt bodily harm, above the scorn of her peers, and that Rukia knew Fullbringer wasn’t enough. Rukia, who knows and has experienced Ichigo’s will more than anybody else, knows that anything short of Shinigami is not enough. If power and any form of it was enough to make Ichigo happy, she would have let him be.

Onwards.

Let’s not forget their complete rejection of Fade to Black, a movie Kubo-sensei had an uncommonly hands-on dedication to. He worked extremely heavily on the movie from concepts to the final product, down to the script and character sketches. ‘”I [Kubo] joined in on production, put together the story and settings after discussing it with everyone…”

When Kubo had to come up with the Japanese subtitle ”Calling Out Your Name” he did it because “I…found that in the plot, someone calling out someone’s name, especially in this story where Ichigo calling out Rukia’s name was a strong expression, that even though no one else remembers you, I do, … I found out it had an important meaning behind it.”

So all the “RUKIAAAGGHHHH” jokes, yeah they actually mean a pretty heavy something. That’s why Ichigo said Rukia’s name so many times in the movie. And why when Rukia finally said ‘Ichigo,’ …well remember that deep sigh of contentment and bliss? That smile and those eyes he gave her? Yeah.

Kubo was also there from start to finish on the creation of the script and the voicing (with heavy input and much of it his original ideas). So quotes like:

“It’s not your injuries hurting you, it’s your heart…”

“Deep inside… I though Rukia would be the one to remember me..”

“Don’t hear me? I’m calling your name Rukia!”

“Ichigo! Even back in the real world you realized something happened with Nee-san! Everyone else may have forgotten about her, but you haven’t! That means you’re still connected!”

“I’m right here Rukia! Try to come back to me!”

“Try to break through to me, Rukia!”

“Rukia… is the one who changed my world!”

“I’m linked…connected… to Rukia!”

“So what’s your relationship with this Kuchiki-san?”                                      “That’s none of your—she’s a very important friend!”

“This time I will be the one to give you strength!”

“Memories aren’t everything! You can’t steal the bond that holds us together!”

Reuse of: “If we fail, both you and I will die together.”

“You saved me again.”                                                                                    “Well, you saved me first.”

“Ya know if death really isn’t an end for us, maybe that encounter wasn’t a beginning. We could’ve been linked much longer. I don’t know for sure, but I feel that a connection once linked will never disappear. So even if we forget everything, our connection will return once again. Maybe it will for you and those siblings too”

“See ya Shinigami, I’m going first.”
“I am not a Shinigami. I am Kuchiki Rukia.”

Those quotes got a pass an an A+.

It was a movie he wanted people to focus on. Namely focus on Ichigo and Rukia. “Ichigo and Rukia.I want people to focus on the change in Ichigo and Rukia’s feelings.”

Do I even need to mention the embrace, the casual living together, Kubo wanting to expand on the final speech, the red string of fate?

Then the whole, what now 9 years debate of the “More than friends, less than lovers”?

Which was actually more along the lines of “To say it’s friendship isn’t quite right, but to say it’s an amorous feeling isn’t quite right either. This two have a relationship unlike anything in other works. To be in such close standing and not dive right into romance.”

Such close standing. As in they lived together, they woke up together, they got ready for bed together, they had intimacy in casual things and not only in big, life-changing situations. Ichigo brought Rukia food, they studied for human world tests together, they had funny little adventures (i.e. searching for a body for Kon, Ichigo protecting Rukia from swindling market-men, Rukia being bribed with sweet-bean paste treats into telling Don Kanonji where Ichigo lives and then the two of them bailing on the TV personality and instead took to terrorizing a scaredy-cat spirit, etc.) They were joined at the hip and they learned things about one another no one else could know.

Casual and life-changing. That’ a pretty fantastic relationship.

But, let’s clarify a brushed over point. ‘Amorous’ or the dating/couple angle that was being discussed had to do with sexual desire. More specifically, showing, feeling, or relating to that aforementioned sexual desire.

I don’t think anybody could argue that Ichigo and Rukia are…prudish or contained in that aspect. Sure, Ichigo grew amusingly flustered at Yoruichi sudden nudity, and he was definitely curious about Matsumoto’s implied nudity, and Rukia’s partial nudity was an experience (save for Ichigo’s worry of the diminishing reputation/integrity Rukia and himself would have if people kept assuming they were sleeping together, his reaction at Isshin and Yuzu assuming he had taken Rukia ‘into his chambers to bed her’ or the shameless innuendo Tenjirō Kirinji placed on Ichigo towards Rukia ..I mean “doesn’t it put you in the mood for peaches?” directed at Ichigo is pretty damn suggestive), and yes Ichigo’s feathers were ruffled  with Orihime showing some cleavage, but Ichigo isn’t openly the type of guy to willingly go to into sexually charged situations or act on whatever degree of amorous feeling he may ever be having.

Likewise Rukia telling Ichigo when he claimed to be a moral man in the presence of Matsumoto’s teasing (tell me one person right now who doesn’t adore Rangiku?) that “why don’t you prove your morality by shutting the gap between your fingers”,being clueless about the rumors of her sexual relationship with Ichigo, and her overall modest way of carrying herself doesn’t make her the most sexually aware character in the series.

Sex isn’t the basis Ichigo or Rukia need for a foundation to a possible future romantic relationship.

To compare fairly, even Orihime doesn’t harbor amorous feelings towards Ichigo. It was a pure kind of crush, not a “how can I get him into bed?” kind of crush.

All this is extra by the way, I got that IR post you’ve been wanting coming in a fast-approaching post.

So if the new ‘RR’ novel can half match even the extra without shafting the characters even more? It would be a literary feat.

Now let’s have a talk, sister to sister.

Let’s say this RenRuki novel is amazing. Let’s say it tells us that Renji had an everlasting love and that Rukia missed him everyday. Let’s say that it gave us a play by play of the making of Ichika. Let’s say Ichigo and Orihime are included in there, being God-forbid… lovey-dovey. Let’s pretend the worst happens and the novel says that Ichigo and Rukia grew apart (by some dimensions beyond ass-pull) because of Renji and Orihime.

What more is it gonna do?

Give us two more five panel children?

Fix the canon in the manga?

Change the fact that if Kubo wanted too (and this is even before a legendary manga started deteriorating with these the two canon ships as the tip of the spearhead) these ships and their ‘romantic factor’ would have been heavily (and mutually) emphasized?

Erase that nearly 100% of the work Kubo is most proud of centers around IchiRuki?

Blow up the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of IchiRuki moments?

Make the fact that Kubo loves drawing Ichigo and Rukia together (remember when he was a shipper on national television and when asked to draw Ichigo alone..who was next to him) fly away?

Take away the color spreads and the poems dedicated to IchiRuki (let’s not even mention the infamous speed of the world poem. Lord knows how triggering it can be)?

Shred up the pages where Rukia dries Ichigo’s rain?

Set fire to how Ichigo and Rukia took away each others depression?

Rid us of the point that Rukia has protected Ichigo more than any other character in the manga?

Hypnotize everyone’s knowledge away from knowing Ichigo and Rukia have had more laughs and ridiculous adventures and casual, mundane intimacies than any other characters?

Step on the fact that Ichigo and Rukia and only Ichigo and Rukia share the titles of: King and Queen, Sand and Rotator, Yin and Yang, (Black) Sun and (White) Moon, Death and the Strawberry, the Matching Powers and et cetera,et cetera, et cetera?

Destroy the least subtle parallels I have ever witnessed, I mean I CANNOT BELIEVE Kubo’s lack of finesse , between IchiRuki and Masshin? Aka the love and destiny Ichigo inherited?

Make everyone forget that Ichigo and Rukia are the main two?

Butcher the fact that Rukia was the first character Kubo-sensei created with the intention of becoming the main protagonist and Ichigo was created and built to compliment Rukia because Kubo felt the protagonist role wasn’t for Rukia alone (literally made for her guys)?

Ice that Kubo said he felt Rukia was the protagonist for the Shinigami and Ichigo was the protagonist for the humans?

Rid us of the “Man in my Heart,” “When you’re ready talk to me,” “Despair cannot stop you,” etc. speeches?

Erase the ink strokes where Ichigo and Rukia were thought to have been in a romantic and sexual relationship (on at least 4 different occasions)?

Melt those omake Kubo drew where he shows Rukia and Ichigo spending Christmas and New Years’ together?

Delete the tweets that say thank you for loving my daughter or remove the text that shows us Kubo has freaking color schemes mapped out for IchiRuki?

Make us forget that Renji had a ‘love’ and understanding weak enough to leave Rukia alone for years and years and years? Rukia had no one, she was pulled out of the academy, her brother (Renji’s fucking captain) wouldn’t spare her a look, her lieutenant died, her captain is always sick, she never speaks to anyone, she can’t make friends easy, and what the hell did Renji do? He sat there and hoped that soon his title would impress her enough to believing he was worthwhile again. Why didn’t he go to her on the anniversary of their friends deaths, why when he surely heard the rumors of Hisana did he not go see if his best friend was okay, why when her lieutenant fucking died did he not go comfort her? Why did he let them grow worlds and people apart? Why did he ignore her as badly as Byakuya did? Why was she such a coward for her? Why was he taking her to die? Why did he cut her, why did he choke her, why did he not let her go to Ichigo when she was on her deathbed already? Why didn’t he change until he learned how to treat her better from Ichigo’s example? Why? Because, Renji is not for Rukia.

One Boy, One Shinigami. The Accidental Encounter. The Story of Destiny Begins.

That’s right, nothing else can change my world.

Even though time passes, this bond will never break.

If it can be said that the heart is unchanging, than that is strength.

Things that take you high are not only wings.

When the two that share destiny, part and reunite beyond the frame of time, the ceased clock will awake and begin to tick again.

The rain drags Black Sun down, but the rain is dried by White Moon.

The Sun that locks Heaven, the Moon the eclipses the night.

Ichigo and Rukia.

Oh my God, honestly? What more do we need to get? Would you have been truly happy getting a broken and half-assed title of canon instead of true depth and emotion? Instead of a heaven shattering, through worlds and worlds, soul-deep, we’ll die together-we’ll live together, we’ll fight together, we’ll change the world together love?

Maybe you can look at the outcome like this. Ichigo and Rukia couldn’t be together. You can place whatever forbidden fruit, different worlds, dystopian reason that makes it the most beautiful to you.

Ichigo and Rukia couldn’t be together. But they can’t be apart and they can’t be with others.

At least not beautifully.

We have everything, we can let IchiHime and RenRuki can have their rotten scraps left behind by an uncaring author and a dimensions weaker kind of ‘love’.

Ichigo and Rukia will transcend.

My Advice and Tips On Fanfic Writing

So I’ve had some people asking or encouraging me to share my advice on writing. A lot of this is based on years of experience and trial-and-error as a writer for both fanfics and original stories. I am by no means a perfect writer. Nor do I claim to be high, mighty, famous and that everyone should follow this like the law. I just thought this would be fun for me and (hopefully) beneficial for you. So…here are some of my tips on how to write better fics in the crazy, wonderful world of fanfiction.

TRIGGER WARNINGS: MENTIONS OF RAPE AND SEXUAL ASSAULT

For anyone that wants to read this with a cool head,and would like to know why so many people see The relationship between Killian Jones and Emma swan on the TV show once upon a time as rape culture, please continue.

For those of you who don’t know who Killian Jones is his alias is Captain Hook. He is a character on the show “Once Upon A Time and is inspired by Captain Hook from Peter Pan. No I’ve never watched Peter Pan, but from this shoe you wouldn’t have to. At first when Hook came to town (StoryBrooke) I was excited by The character. I felt that he could be a cool addition to the show and the way that OUAT spins stories it would be awesome.

On Twitter, I would see people talk about how the relationship between Killian and Emma was rape culture. Rape culture is a theoretical concept (a qualitative theory) in which rape is pervasive and normalized due to societal attitudes about gender and sexuality.I had no clue what the heck they were talking about at all. I didn’t see how it could be but I asked questions and I got educated. I don’t remember every single little line that Killian said but I’m going to give you a refresher.

From my memory, Emma first met Hook when she and her mother,Snow,fell through a portal to the enchanted Forest. There is a memorable sword fight between Emma and Killian where he tells her that when he steps her with his sword she will feel it. No I didn’t see the problem with this at first but I can see where it could go wrong. The line in itself was implied sex or sexual encounters with him. In this scene Emma is clearly uncomfortable with him and he has never apologized for saying that and she has never forgiven him for that. In that context it seems like what he was saying was when he did finally you bed her then she would feel it. He was clearly fighting for power in this scene he won and it was shown him over her. Now the writers may not have written it this way but it’s how it is perceived.

Next Hook also tells someone in later scenes that she could have sworn she was trying to get him drunk which is usually his tactic. Which clearly implies for women to "want” him or sleep with him they would have to be drunk and clearly inebriated and not in their right mind. This is again implies rape.

Once again Emma is not interested in him. She continues to not be interested in him for a while. Killian continues on with some of the most vulgar and not funny jokes I’ve ever heard. He also implied that Milah will be a sex slave to his crew on his ship the Jolly Roger.

No I don’t want to say all the many lines that he has said but this was this a little recap of what he said so you can understand.

For someone that was so uninterested in him at first and Emma sure did fall in love with him and now in season six she’s moving in with him. I don’t see how that change would have come. let me tell you why so many of us see more than one problem with it.

For many episodes , Emma had a strong dislike for Hook. But suddenly when he does something for her she likes him. That tells the story of No matter how hard you try to stay away from a man or even a woman that you aren’t interested in, if they try hard enough to get your attention you will give in and fall in love with them.

That’s rape culture my dear friends. More often than not, it’s situations in which sexual assault, rape, and general violence are ignored, trivialized, normalized, or made into jokes.

From my own experiences this is pure and utter bullshit that Emma would like him.. this is not first grade this is adult subjects. Yes it’s just a tv show but to many people it parallels their own lives and this Emma and Hook story parallels mine.

See when I was 8 years old I was raped by a 13 year old boy that was my babysitter. I didn’t like him at first and especially not sexually. He made advances and continued to push when I didn’t want him to. We moved away but it still didn’t cover up the fact that what he took from me was valuable and precious. Because he had more power over me I was made to give into him and his sexual advances.

Fast forward to high school. There was a pretty cute boy in my grade I had met. He was nice or so I thought. Over time he started to show an interest in me that I had never gotten. I didn’t want a boyfriend as I was too focused on school. We had mutual friends so I gave him my number just so we could talk and be friends.

That’s when the sexual advances started. He would ask me for nudes and ask me if I had sex before. Sure there is the excuse that every guy does this but that sure as hell doesn’t make it right.i still consider myself a virgin because at 8 years old I didn’t give myself to anyone willingly. Technically I am not a virgin but to me I am and that’s all that matters.

So let’s call this boy Ian. Everyone in our senior class thought Ian and I would look cute together. They would always encourage me to accept his dates and hug him and things I didn’t want to do. I thought maybe I was being too stupid so I went along with it but I never hung out with him alone.

Fast forward to months later and I decided that maybe he was a gentleman like everyone said.. everyone deserves a second chance. I hung out with him and i thought we were going to a public place but instead he parked his car in front of a few houses. It didn’t take him like to kiss and bite places no one had ever touched on my own will. Since his passenger door didn’t open I had to physically push him off of me after he had already forced his hands down my pants. I got out and he still forced himself to kiss me.

Later that night I showered and I told a few of my friends that knew him what happened. They replied with lols and laughing emojis and asked me why I hadn’t let him continue. Once again I didn’t see what I was doing wrong. Ian texted me and apologized and I guess that was supposed to make it okay. He continued to send me pics of him masturbating and telling me he liked how wet I was and just so many disgusting things. But my friends still shipped us together and told me if I gave him a chance I would be so happy. Since he’d never treated other girls like that I didn’t understand why I was the target .I blocked him in social media and had to go through the torture of seeing him at school.

I love once upon a time and I identified so much with Emma and a guy (Killian) that just wouldn’t give up. I was disappointed when I saw that Emma had seemed to fall in love with him. It hurt me because I thought could I be that happy if I had given in to Ian? I wouldn’t like to find out.

So yes when I say I despise the ship captain swan I do. I dislike it with every fiber of my being. I don’t care if the writers intended to have him like that or not. So when anyone tells us that we are reaching when we call that ship rape culture we aren’t. So many of us have our own experiences and traumas that we have to live through and a show about fairytales was a way to escape. Now it’s just shit being shoved into my face about another a guy that reminded me so much of Ian.

I do not hate Colin O'donoghue or Jennifer Morrison. I think they are two very lovely people and actors. I can tell the difference between fiction and reality. But there is a line to how much reality is inside of fiction. Something Adam and Eddy have crossed. Say what you want but I’m against everything about that ship. To all of you reading this who love the show but not the ship stay strong.. you are not your trauma and you will get through this
