Hello! This is one of my favorite plots ever, tbh. Especially single dad Eren and like, boss Levi. I love it. There are a few below, but feel free to check out the [DILF Eren] ask as well, because that has a few in.
Moments of Grace Summary: “It’s not going to be an easy road,” Levi said, “but the right path never is. Do you regret taking custody? Do you regret your daughter?” “No!” Eren said, anger flashing across his face. “Good. Remember that on the days when you’re struggling.”
Could you recommend some sanvers and supercorp fics
definitely. they’re almost entirely supercorp, though. sorry about that…
all i know (is that i love you so);- Kara briefly wonders if she could just say those words to Lena, if that would work, if that counted, but feels guilty for even considering such a thing. She’s not destined to Lena and Lena’s not destined to her, and she feels dumb for being so upset over this, considering the girl has never even said a word to her. Kara cries herself to sleep that night, wishing she had her mom there to comfort her. (or, soulmate AU where your soulmate’s first words to you are tattooed on your skin.)
A Knight to Remember-
Kara enters a sword-fighting tournament to win the affections of princess Lena. (because maria insists on exploiting my weakness for her fics and ruining my life and grades)
Throwing a holiday party so soon after her mother is locked away isn’t Lena’s idea of a good time.
call on me, darling -
A fake engagement between the CEO of L-Corp and her assistant? Nothing could possibly go wrong. Feelings couldn’t possibly be caught.
Destruction (sometimes means rebirth)- There’s not much that she can do. The heat, she doesn’t feel. She walks through the flames and uses her x-ray vision to spot any survivor, but there’s nothing. Only devastation. or, in which Kara loses Lena, but does she really?
exception- kara keeps doing strange things, and lena doesn’t know what to make of it. or, kara is in love and it takes lena an absurdly long time to notice.
Snapper’s first assignment to Kara is a teaching moment: one he considers vital needs if she wants to be a journalist. It seems simple, write about L-Corp’s new green initiative, get a few quotes, write something semi-decent. But as Kara starts to dig in, she finds herself at the center of L-Corp’s new CEO’s attention…for better or for worse.
Gold-Crested Ravens and Cornflower Blue Mornings - And belonging is such a weird concept, no? On a pure denotative level, it implies ownership, and society—only when it’s convenient to do so—discourages notions of owning a person. You belong to yourself, they say, no one should own you. But people cannot go on without belonging. It’s all Lena’s ever wanted. She wants to belong to Kara. There is no levy, no negotiations, no cage, no footsteps to follow. Kara erases the notion of transaction from the act of belonging, rips up the contracts and fine print, and Lena wants and wants more. I’m yours, she wants to say, whisper into her skin, shout out into the sky that she disappears into. I’m yours, I’m yours, I’m yours.
i’ll crawl home to her-
She feels her eyes heat up, closes them, tries to rinse her parents’ faces from her memory, tries to burn them in at the same time. She wants to hold onto them, wants to move on like they asked. She wants to remember Krypton, be Krypton - her parents are martyrs and she has to be the prophet. Or, the foster kid au nobody asked for because it’s angsty as hell.
In the Stars -
The first time Alex sees Maggie, they’re six and Maggie’s the new, weird kid in class with big dimples and far too many bandaids littering her body. All Alex wants is to be liked and have friends and all Maggie wants is to be Alex’s friend.
Lord, Save Me from Your Followers - A tumblr prompt, spiraled out of control. Kara, perhaps out of a want for thoroughness in her story, perhaps out of a Millennial-born urge to creep on a the social media of a woman she finds intriguing, discovers that Lena Luthor has a pretty active following on Instagram one afternoon not long after their first meeting. She debates it, just for a moment, before following Lena.
make my wish come true- "Kara said she could come over whenever she was free, had literally texted Lena saying she would welcome the company so she knows she isn’t going to intrude but Lena’s three hours early and she doesn’t know if that welcome extends this far ahead.“ AKA Lena shows up early to a friend get-together at Kara’s and things get festive (and flirty) real quick.
mother where art thou - lena embarks on a journey and kara is too good, too pure for this world. (lena and kara + the search for lena’s birth mother)
On a Friday Afternoon- She imagines her hands around Lex’s throat. She imagines him begging for his life. She imagines crushing his windpipe; the sound that would make. Kara dreams of revenge.
only, simply, absolutely, just- If only Kara Danvers didn’t work the same shift that interfered with Lena’s horrendous habit of strolling in for a coffee at nearly twelve in the morning, maybe none of this ever would have happened in the first place. Or, maybe it would have, because as Alex Danvers claims, there is no escaping the doomed rom-com cliché once it finds you.
Pattern of Behaviour-
This is the one habit Lena Luthor just can’t seem to break. (one of my favorites but tw for suicidal thoughts & actions)
Sunlit Honey and Lavender Sunsets- Jessica Hoang takes her job very seriously. It’s odd, or uncommon, as she’s learned- people are always so surprised when she seems more loyal to Lena Luthor than the advancement of her own career. She used to think that the whole trope of secretaries selling out their bosses for personal gain existed only in bad TV shows, but, as always, she overestimates the human race. So when Kara Danvers the reporter starts showing up more often, she’s wary and a little irritated. Yes, Lena said to let her in at any time, so she does so dutifully, but she’s seen her share of reporters and she’s not impressed with the bunch. Words are their trade, and it wouldn’t take much to motivate a reporter to twist Lena’s image around for a pretty buck.
this woman knows of my history- "Supergirl loves flying. She doesn’t tell Lena that, but she doesn’t have to. She flies with ease. It’s like she’s lighter when she’s up in the air. She makes flying look effortless, simple. When she wants up, she’s up in a blink. When she wants down, she dives so quickly that when Lena’s around to see it, she always catches her breath. It’s like she can command the wind.”
to face unafraid- “You don’t like marshmallows in your hot chocolate? Why do you hate love?” or: their relationship isn’t contingent on hot chocolate preferences, right? RIGHT?
wildfire- Alex has seen beautiful women before, her sister is one of them, but not one has ever taken her breath away so quickly it felt like she was being knocked over. Maybe it was simply the shock of seeing another person here when the school had seemed so desolate. Or maybe, maybe, it was because that was the most beautiful woman that Alex has ever seen. (or the one where alex teaches chemistry, maggie teaches history, and they teach each other a little something about falling in love.)
12″ by 8″- Objectively, it’s a beautiful photograph. A high definition immortalisation of a kiss in the sky, two figures pressed impossibly close, hands tangled in hair and around waists as they hover sixty stories in the air, illuminated gently by the neon of the CatCo Worldwide Media sign. But all she really sees when she looks at it is proof of Lena Luthor cheating on Kara Danvers. The one where Cat discovers that Lena’s stepping out with Supergirl (and decides to deal with the problem herself).
and i’ll keep updating my fic recs on here and here.
Getting some practice speeding up my art technique so I drew a Handsome Jack. The Borderlands Series is probably one of my favorite things, being my first first person shooter game I’ve ever gotten into. The Villains are especially amazing including bandit bosses, giant monsters, or Handsome Jack himself.
I am laughing about the reviews for Yooka-Laylee. Because all the complaints are of the exact same flaws as the N64 Rare games. Bad camera? Banjo had it. Big empty worlds? Donkey Kong 64 had that and so did Tooie. Same with the other criticisms.
Sounds to me like they made the exact kind of game people wanted. A game that resembled the ones you grew up with from Rare.
The Banjo games, while incredibly fun, are also messy, flawed, occaisionally clunky, and full of frustrating tasks. Donkey Kong 64 is a tedious mess of segmented collecting with repeat bosses and challenges. Conkers Bad Fur Day has some of the slowest clunkiest controls ive experienced in a game and is way overpraised for basic family guy humor. my blood chills at the thought of ever playing the single player campaign again
But still many of if not all these games are fan favorites. The rare games of the era werent perfect but they were fun. And there was atleast a few that would gel with your interests. The reviews of YL dont seem to be bashing it to pieces, but make it sound like a fun game that could have given more considering the hype and time spent. More content, tighter camera angling, etc. They gave us a game just like the classics but without the nostalgia to defend it
Im not too pressed as i figured this would happen when they said who was working on it. You dont refrain from making the same mistakes when the gaming community considers your pre-buyout work to be untouchable.
Speaking as someone whose favorite games are psychonauts and harvest moon 64 (in other words my favorite games are not flawless at all), from what i read i am not scared to play YL. I might enjoy it and i might not. But i want to give it the chance. If i can excuse the banjo games and suffer through conker, then i will probably be fine with this one. And maybe with enough support they can go back to the drawing board and make a true successor to the genre starring these characters.
The one where Kurt is under the influence of pain meds and calls people ‘precious unicorns’.
A DUI - Assistant Director Under the Influence
They had been waiting for almost three hours, ever since the ambulance rushed him to the hospital and they followed in their SUV. Jane and Patterson paced back and forth, in opposite direction, occasionally making eye contact as they passed each other and tried to share a reassuring look. Tasha and Reade were seated on plastic chair, his knee was bouncing nervously under the now empty tea cup, his fourth since they’d arrived, while she clenched her fists in her lap and occasionally urged Reade to stop shaking because it was driving her crazy.
“He’s going to be fine,” the doctor reassured them when he finally stepped out to meet them, “he was lucky. A fraction of an inch to the left and we’d be having a completely different conversation right now.”
Totally envious of Kristen and anyone else whose eye color appearance varies depending on the lighting of the photo or video. I haven't seen her wear such a soft pink color in a while (if ever) but the skirt totally suits her and she wears all her outfits like a boss. I respect and admire her for being more vocal about polarizing topics here in the US. That she posed with Pulse survivors struck a chord, especially given this weekend we here in Orlando will reflect on the one year anniversary.
Yes, it’s amazing how that works. No matter what she wears, what color her hair her eyes are always amazing and ever changing to a degree!
As for the pink…I can remember one other time very recently that Kristen wore a soft pink…
This is probably one of my most favorite looks. But last nights was such a dichotomy of badass/femininity and I loved it.
I love how “girly” Kristen has been dressing since she buzzed her hair. I think she mentioned in an interview @ Cannes that she feels more feminine rather then less with her new hair style.
She looked amazing last night and she has been looking so fit and amazing for months now. Can’t wait to see where her style is going to lead her next.
As for the reason for her appearance last night, I can’t tell you how happy I am for her to be involved in such a worthy endeavor. You, as a resident of Orlando, know more than some just how important it is that we get a handle on this issue.
I’ve been thinking of the violence/terrorist attacks in the UK and just how much worse it could have been had it been easy for them to get a hold of guns.
As for the Orlando shooting…I can’t believe that it’s been a year and we’ve done nothing in this country to improve the situation if anything we’ve made it worse, we just haven’t seen the shit hit the fan yet.
Here in NC our lovely GA is trying to pass easier open carry and allow guns on college campuses. I can’t believe that they think the answer is more guns rather than less. We already have plenty of guns in this country. More than we need. I’m just hopeful that our Governor will veto this legislation.
Take care and I hope your community continues to heal from the tragedy you endured and I’ll continue to be happy that Kristen is lending her spotlight to such a worthy cause and can’t wait to see her short on the subject.
Radiant Office– the little underdog that could! This show has nothing new to offer, but it was packaged with such warmth and heart and agonizing relatability that I fell for the Suicide Squad as they tried to prove they were worth being given a chance. This is currently my favorite show of the year – at least for now.
Whisper– what a wild and crazy ride. This is a show that, if left to my own devices, I probably would have dropped. Lee Bo Young and Kwon Yul kept my attention (poor Lee Sang Yoon and his eyebrows did their best, but I’m not sure if he’s really cut out for this kind of intensely dramatic role), and the show was utterly stolen by Kim Hyung Mook as Secretary Song. While I enjoyed the constant allusions to real-life corruption, this wasn’t what I’d consider to be one of Park Kyung Soo’s better dramas.
Tunnel– I can appreciate it intellectually for what it was trying to do and what it accomplished, the concept was interesting, the cast was pretty great (Yoon Hyun Min was perfect as ever, but as much as I love Sexy Demon Daddy, he really needed to dial down the shouting). But for whatever reason, it didn’t grab me as it should have. On paper it has everything I’d want in a mystery/thriller, but in reality it was difficult giving it my full attention and my heart just couldn’t connect with any of the characters. I enjoyed it for the most part, but it’s going to be one of those dramas that I’ll immediately forget I ever watched.
Individualist Ms. Ji Young – this drama special hit some very painful nerves but in the best way. There are shadows of Flower Boy Next Door with the bubbly neighbor that barges his way into the life of the loner-next-door. But there’s also a darker sadness and realness here that one doesn’t always find in dramas. Perhaps that’s why, even beyond the fact it’s only two 1-hour episodes, this felt more like a movie than a drama. This is by far my favorite romance I’ve watched this year, which probably tells you too much about my tastes (or at least my inner world).
Super Family 2017
Recent premieres I plan to check out when I have a chance:
Fight My Way
My Sassy Girl – despite loving Joo Won in Gaksital, I just haven’t been able to get into his other dramas. I also have a terrible track record for sageuks, be they fusion or not. This means it’s on the “skip” list even if I have hopes for the fantastic Oh Yeon Seo in the titular role.
Suspicious Partner – I loved this writer’s previous work (All About My Romance; Protect the Boss) so this may go into the watch list eventually, but nothing I’ve heard so far has made me want to immediately pick it up.
Upcoming dramas of interest:
The Best Hit – I am really excited about this one, because I loved the docu-style from Producer until it turned into a standard drama. I also love Yu PD, and Cha Tae Hyun has been my favorite of the 1N2D members ever since the original crew moved on to other things, so I’m curious to see how they’ll handle directing their first-ever drama together. Also, as a fan of the slice-of-life genre, I’m hoping it will be along those lines just based on the premise. Last but not least, this cast is incredible, and I’m already anticipating a slew of cameos.
Duel – I was only vaguely interested in this because it’s from the writer of Nine: Nine Times Time Travel and Queen In Hyun’s Man (and I’m assuming this is the writer who focused on the more sci-fi mind-bendy aspects of those dramas ‘cause this one has clones) but given a choice to recap this one, I took it, because I have a feeling this will be fun to write about.
Forest of Secrets – I’m hoping giving this one up for Duel won’t haunt me because omg this caaaaaaaaaaast.
Woman of Dignity – I’m so nervous and conflicted. I adore Kim Sun Ah and Kim Hee Sun, and having them work together in a show is like a dream come true. But I really hated the writing of SWDBS and don’t trust this writer to do these incredible women justice. *fingers crossed for a miracle*
Bad Guys: Age of Evil – everyone’s gnashing their teeth that the original crew aren’t coming back but I’m over here already anticipating Park Sung Woong and (possibly) Kang Ha Neul.
As always, any drama not listed means I have nothing new to add since the last mention and/or it’s not something I care about enough to add to the list.
Ok so I know requests are closed, but idk if this counts as a request? I've been feeling really down lately and was wondering if you could give me some fic or hc recs for the any or the Hamilton characters or cast? Yours always make me feel better, and I'm sure you have a great taste in fics so it'd really be appreciated. So incredibly sorry to bother you, and I hope you have a wonderful day/evening!
oh sure! i’m just gonna list a ton of great writers. i wish i had a better list (i’ll try to make one eventually) but these are just the first people that come to mind.
@boss-headcanons has the cutest/most amazing/perfect headcanons ever and you should definitely check them out! also their blog is just super positive and it’s great
@wrotemywayoutimagines also has some great headcanons for hamilton + hamilcast i believe! and their imagines are really well written and overall amazing
“Sometimes the changes are good..and sometimes just woirth it Risk making a change”
Boss is not Linked to being only in the universe of halo , hehe
Something very simple , Showing how Boss has changed over these years
1-NCR Veteran Ranger (2014-February 2016) During my madness with fallout new vegas, I fell in love with this fucking suit, is that seriously, WHO IS NOT LOVED FROM THIS ?! im still using it for the fallout stories btw
2-Halo 3 (February 2016-2017 -i dont remember the month xD ) This was one of the first models i ever used in sfm ( well, used succesfully xD ) Nothing mroe to add , who dont love the bulky and simple design of the halo 3 armors , the Security its my favorite of all time..all time.
3-Halo 5 Guardians (2017-now v: ) After working more seriously with the sfm and getting into the forums and etc, I managed to find some models of halo 5 where .. Fortunately mia, was the security helmet and other set of armor created by soul, for that time I wanted a lot The model of the Vigilant armor of halo 5, but seeing that I was not refusing to use the mark iv of halo wars, and little by little I get too attached to it, and more with the combination of white techsuit and color cobalt In armor: P
Soon I will do a compilation of what Boss looks like in the different universes (that attract me: P)
igotmarkdiction: hi there, can you please write a scenario about Mark flirt with a pretty staff (which is the reader) working backstage for weekly music show. Probably a hot and quick sex before he gets on stage. Thank you. I love all of your scenarios :*
Author: Admin M
Character(s): Mark (GOT7)/Reader
Word Count: 1,321
Summary: Yes I love my job. No I didn’t think it would ever allow me to get close with an idol.
Of course I loved me job. I mean hell. I worked for a weekly music show that allows me to meet idols and celebrities everyday. I wouldn’t give this job up for nothing. And today was a special day. They had one of my favorite bands on today. Got7 will be here all day. I can’t even contain my excitement.
“(y/n)!” I spun around and foundry boss staring at me. “What are you doing? Got7 is about to be here. I need you downstairs to greet them.”
“Yes sir.” I bowed and ran out the room.
Oh god what am I going to say to them? I mean I’ve met idols before but this is different. This is Got7 we are talking about. I just need to calm down.
“Miss?” I jumped as I almost ran into very tall handsome boy.
So, I just got to the conclusion that Macavity is so fun to draw
1 & 2.- Just some doddles- practice I made bc I was bored.
3 & 4.- Have you ever seen the Japanese versión of Macavity? He looks like fucking Tuxedo Mask from Sailor Moon wtf. So, I couldn’t help myself and ended drawing how wolud the Macavity of the film would look like with the outfit of the Japanese one. Plus Munkustrap laughing at him bc yes lol
5.- Lovely Mungojerrie and sweet Rumpleteazer with their angry and salty boss xd
ohhh ho ho have you come to the right person. my entire life is a robstar fanfic rec tbh. this is going to be such a long post bc i would major in robstar fanfiction if i could.
for starters, kryallaorchid is the goddess of robstar fanfiction. she has everything from cute and funny one shots to angsty, heart-wrenching stories. ff.net link (if you’re into smut, you have to read The Object bc it is lilterally the best robstar smut i swear.)
SUMMARIES TAKEN FROM THE SUMMARIES AUTHORS WROTE AND BELONG TO AUTHORS
if you’re into funny and/or fluffy stories:
Ten Things I Hate About You - (Sometimes, he even felt like he hated her for making him feel this way about her… Reason Ten: Only you can make me feel like an idiot… “And just what is it so special that you have planned for me inside my bedroom?”)
Ah, Young Love - (Ahhh, love, hormones, and complete floundering is in the air at Titans’ Tower. What could possibly go right?)
Stammering, Stuttering, and Struggling - (And here he thought that after he and Starfire kissed in Tokyo, he could finally face his alien girlfriend without being reduced to a stuttering and blushing pile of traffic light colored teenage hormonal goo. For one of the world’s greatest detectives, this was rather dense of Robin.)
The SUPERmarket - (The cupboard is bare, so the Titans face their most trying battle yet: the supermarket. Will they come out alive, or will Starfire’s curiosity and Beast Boy’s love of tofu doom them all?)
if you’re into action and/or angsty stories:
Lost Without You - (Dick Grayson—literally—runs into a strange girl on a lonely road, and she whirls him into a run-for-your-life adventure that he had never believed possible. Full summary inside. RxS. Complete.)
The White Rose - (When head detective Lex Twain shows up at the tower entrance with a plea, the titans are hesitant. A murderer stalkes the streets of Jump city, targeting young women and the dectective needs bait: Starfire and Raven.)
au but fits into the action category: The Princess and The Detective - (Dick Grayson’s life takes a turn for the worst when a new serial killer, the Fairytale Felon, arises. While he searches for clues, he’s taken with the new gym instructor, Kory Anders, who may possibly be the killer’s next victim. Richard/Kory. AU.)
if you’re into AU stories:
Princes and Frogs - (Life’s hard enough for Kori Anders- navigating high school, trying to pass English, not to mention harboring a secret crush on her best friend’s older brother, the dreamy Richard Grayson. Oh yeah, and she just found out she’s the princess of a small European country called Tameran. What’s a girl to do?)
Reach - (Starfire. Princess Koriand’r of the warrior-planet Tamaran. Thorn in the Titans’ sides since she appeared in Jump after her crash-landing in Gotham City. She’s a criminal, and the Titans have to bring her down. She knows that, of course, and it frustrates Robin to no end that she doesn’t seem to find them threatening. He’ll show her, one of these days.)
Temptations - (written by my best friend olivia holler) (When Richard Grayson continues his reckless behavior on missions, his boss pairs him up with a certain red head in hopes she’ll keep him in line. That is, if she doesn’t kill him first.)
and my FAVORITE AU ROBSTAR STORY EVER (probably read it over ten times):
Strangers in the Night - (Richard Grayson gave up all hope of ever finding true love, but all that changed when he falls head over heels literally for a gorgeous redhead with green eyes. Too bad she’s his best friend’s fiancé. AU. RobStar. COMPLETE!)
if you’re into fluffy one shots:
A Moment of Shocking Clairty - (aka Three Times Robin Almost Kissed Starfire for the First Time and One Time That He Did. Winning entry for Kryalla Orchid and Star of Airdrie’s Rob/Star First Kiss Contest 2011.)
Beach Baby - (ONESHOT. Star’s first time at the beach, Robin’s having a hard time dealing with Star’s bikini, Cyborg never left the dune buggy shop, BB’s waddling around as a seal, and Raven’s dealing with it all. RS)
Sweeter Than Chocolate - (ONE SHOT. With Starfire unable to sleep on the coldest night Jump City has seen in fifty years, Robin gives her a little something to warm her up. A story of passion, love, and hot chocolate. [Robin x Starfire])
i literally hate myself for the amount of times i’ve reread this one shot over and over again but i love it so much
Robin Kiss the Girl - (Great, Robin was arguing with a song, and the song was winning’. RobStar. The effects of one Disney movie, on one very hormone filled super hero? Not too pretty.)
i literally have eight pages of teen titan stories in my favorites, so if you want more of a certain kind, just message me! i hope this helps all my robstar lovers!
A/N: I hope you all enjoy some Tony DiNozzo! I’ve gotten quite a lot of Supernatural requests, so I figured I would post two NCIS fics today. I will spoil one for tomorrow, because I can’t contain myself. Tomorrow for sure, I will post an angst/fluff Dean fic. It’s one of my favorites out of all the ones I’ve written so far! I’m SO EXCITED to show you guys!
Tony couldn’t focus. Ever since he left your apartment last night, he couldn’t think, he couldn’t sleep. Tony looked up from his desk, meeting eyes with his boss, Leroy Jethro Gibbs. Tony padded across the bullpen, stopping before the Marine’s desk. “Boss,” Tony started to say.
“Don’t ask DiNozzo. Go get her,” Gibbs said flatly, moving files around on his desk.
“How did you-?”
“You haven’t touched your food since you got here. Now go,” Gibbs ordered, waving him away.
“Thanks boss,” Tony whispered, snatching his coat from the back of his chair. Tony made his way to the elevator, wasting no time. He had to stop you before you got on that plane. Tony dialed McGee’s number, the phone fumbling in his hands as he dialed. “McGee, I need you to keep a plane from taking off… Yes this is [Y/N] related… McGee, please just do me this one solid… Thank you,” Tony sighed, jogging towards his car.
Tony sped to the airport, using a squad car so he could pull up closer to the door. He flashed his badge at airport security so they wouldn’t ticket or tow the car. Once he got past security, he dashed in the direction of your gate.
Now we’re cookin’; METROID, my favorite Nintendo franchise has plenty of terrifying aliens out for bounty hunter blood. First off is Phantoon from Super Metroid, and his deathly stare. Nightmare is a must, hailing from Sector 5 space station from Metroid Fusion. He’s one of the most disgusting bosses Samus ever fought, melting face and all. We can’t really blame him though, as his X Parasite infection can make even lovable characters disgusting. Case in point: SA-X. Having on of the most badass bounty hunters armor and weapons become an evil entity is all too terrifying.
Lastly, Chozo Ghosts of Tallon IV were notorious for ambushing Samus in Metroid Prime.
first, let me just say that i don’t always know what i want out of soukoku???
Bungou Stray Dogs in general really appeals to both the writer and fangirl in me. soukoku especially!!! how can i explain this—but i was both disappointed and relieved when Dazai just left Chuya like this?
i really appreciate their partnership and rivalry. i love their dynamics and parallels! and as a writer, i see so many interesting possibilities with soukoku!
but do i want their ship to have canon moments that we can easily interpret as lovey-dovey? in all honestly, i have to fight myself to say this, but no. i want to see more angst, feelings of betrayal and disinterest, more bickering and childish antics, and whatnot. does that mean i don’t want fanservice? hELL NO
objectively speaking, i accept soukoku as a non-canon ship, but i’m still a proud member of soukoku hell *shows you my badge* this isn’t even my main blog anymore—i reblog all my favorite soukoku gems on @cilly-musouka. there’s also some really hot stuff on Vine for soukoku. thank you to all my soukoku dealers, i love you
on that note, their angsty partnership makes their ship so very enjoyable. angsty ships are my favorite kind.
and while i want fanservice out of this series, i also want Asagiri-san to stay true to their characters. entertaining story elements are hard to come by, and their partnership and rivalry is really something, so i don’t want to forsake it for my fangirl needs. just look at the thrill in Chuya’s eyes when he’s fighting Dazai in the anime opening:
Baelsar’s Wall is probably one of my favorite dungeons in a long time, and I’m sure one of the main reasons for that is because I stopped doing my extreme roulettes months ago. And while I wish I could have uploaded the entire thing, I also knew I wouldn’t have nearly enough time for that. As such, I stuck with just the highlights and the entirety of the final boss battle.
As you reach the top of the wall, you’re fighting Garleans and Resistance troops dressed in Alliance colors. Often simultaneously.
So too are you afforded your first-ever view of the Gyr Abanian highlands.
I think my greatest regret of losing all my Heavensward footage on my corrupted hard drive is that I don’t have the screens from my reaction to seeing Gyr Abania. I was on Discord with @sylvan-rain, @safestsephiroth, and @twelvesavethequeen at the time; I gasped and stopped tanking for a full minute.
The conversation that followed, paraphrased:
Me: Guys. Look. It’s Ala Mhigo. Sylv: Are you crying? Me, crying: No…
And then you reach the ramparts to find the Griffin standing alone. He removes his mask, and you find that he is none other than Ilberd Feare, the traitorous captain of the Crystal Braves.
This fight is also responsible for turning Ilberd into a meme within the XIV community, as shown in my briefly exposed chat box just before the charge. One of Ilberd’s battle catchphrases - “Sloppyyy!” - is so annoying and so frequent that it’s since found its way into everything from ASCII macros to parodies like this from @edeott. It doesn’t help that his abilities are… questionable in their innuendos, to say the least, with names like “Big Boot” and “Restraint Collar.”
