Ofcourse anon ^^ Brace yourself as I only need a reason to ramble XD
really is too reserved. I remember having a few conversations on tumbler at the start of
this arc on how Rai looking out for the children was more out of duty than care, as
opposed to Frankenstein. Because he shows so little emotions
its really hard to guess. Let me see if i can find any again: Here is some of it. But now this far in current arc, esp after 444, its clear he values
his children much more than I thought. Rai has just been so desperate, and cute this arc trying to save M21, I really grew to admire their relationship.
For Rai, I think even before the first moment he had actually interacted with M-21, he has already had his heart softened towards him. Can we forget the Frankenstein would have killed M-21 if
it wasn’t for Rai?
One of the reason for this instant consideration is that, back then, M21 and M24 were the
he had come across (after Frankenstein), and their pitiful abandoned existence
really have a home anywhere, neither human, nor Nobles nor any other
accept them, saddened him greatly. After them, there was so many
modified one after the other the novelty wore off lol.
And then, the more he came to realize M21s trauma and just how damaged he truly is, the
more he started caring for him. All very gradually, and quietly. While
we saw Frankenstein’s care and each moment outwardly, with Rai it
happened inwardly enough to even ignore if one isn’t looking carefully. Then M21 had stepped in to
protect him from the Elders is definitely one of the highlight of M21s
interaction with Rai, and it genuinely warmed his heart. He hasn’t have this
kind of individual interaction with any of their other child. Rai has come to defend him by words more than once too, one when he was beating himself over KSA, and one when he asked for Mark’s awakening, and there may have been others. Then Franky and him actually discussed his mental/emotional health before deciding that they should get his comrades name from Crombel. All this has been a privilege not bestowed upon any other child, partly because they don’t need it.
The whole Mark saga infact, raised Rai’s worry for him 200% I think, by now,
M21 is Rai’s favorite kid hands down imo. He also seems to remind him of
Frankenstein in his unruly days, a much milder Frankenstein so there’s that
Frankenstein/M21 had always been one of
my most favorite parts of Noblesse. Frankenstein started getting soft towards M21 very early on like Rai. The first moment where he noticed that hey this kid is not bad, was when M-21 had called him to warn him about Jake and Mary in S1, and Frankenstein
was like,isn’t it a bit too kind of you to tell me everything in detail? This
was when he gave them the safe house address to hide if they want.
The scene after M24s death, when M-21 had told them causally how all of
the 100 M series died on him. The first time i read this scene I thought Franky
expressions were him evaluating if this guy is telling the truth or not. Now I
think he was like what poor kid. Master
we have managed to pick up a really unfortunate puppy. Rai was clearly hurting
for M21 far back then too. But saving the kids in DA-5 arc was definitely what sealed
his worth in Frankenstein eyes. He would not have blamed him if he had chosen
otherwise I’m sure, it was a very tough situation M21 was in, but he exceeded his
Also spoiler alert ahead if you aren’t upto date with the canon
I was quite disappointed with the fact that it was RK5, not
Frankenstein or Rai who saved him from the crazy Green werewolf. I’d been
musing so many ways he could be saved this arc by either one of them the entire last year and hugged to death and what not. Then came
RK 5 to take all the glory. I’ve now grown to like this development for various
reason now, but it took a couple weeks to come to terms with -_-
M-21s is a cute lil baby. He should be allowed to talk however he
likes XD Frankenstein and Rai knows he needs this freedom to acquire some measure
of self-worth and value. So yes, they let him. M-21 genuinely tries hard to be
respectful to Frankenstein too. Most of the times he has been blunt or rude were
extreme circumstances, like when he snapped him out of darkspear influence
during Frank/Rajak, or when he was arguing about Mark authenticity or letting
him awaken. M21 will dare not disrespect Frankenstein deliberately, Franky’s too scary for that.
Also I think atleast initially, M-21, not Tao,
was meant to be the one who can be upfront with Frankenstein and snap him out
of a moment of weaknesses, but this particular relationship point hasn’t really
been used again after Rajaks fight as far as I can remember. Maybe when/if its Frankenstein’s arc with
his old student Tasume then it will be utilized again. I’d very much like to see it again.
And M-21 is their first child. Ofcourse he is special ^^ Okay its
probably my bias speaking too, but M-21 is hands down the most troublesome of
their kids. 4th and 5th arcs issues are direct results of his actions, Rai
even has to go to sleep in 5th due to his comrade’s saga, so yeah they are well aware
that this child needs extra attention. Plus there’s the fact that M-21 is
the most traumatized of their kids and arguably has suffered the worst in life
(can we deny that he still gets the worst of all, like how many times has he
been stabbed by now?) Which means that they are hands down the most worried
about him = more blankets to wrap him in = more protection = more space in their
worried minds and hearts ^^
Though every child has their own special
place too, Seira is probably Frankenstein’s favorite due to her helping him in
household work and bc of how obedient she is. Tao is Frank 2, so he is obviously special. Takeo and Regis are the most normal of them, and as such the most easily to be ignored by Frankenstein, unfortunately or fortunately for them.
I do not think Rai knows anymore about his heart other than
that it is of a werewolf. If he knew anymore, he would have revealed to
Frankenstein atleast by now. Though, it could be that its Ashleens and Rai will
eventually figure it out… even in this arc, dare we hope.
I would LOVE if Crombel does something like this. Infact,
before this arc I was very sure this is exactly what’s going to happen
triggering the start of the end of Crombel and M21s comrades name or heart owners saga. But then came this arc, and this
kidnapping of M-21 had been so heavy and long, and pretty much everything he didn’t want to happen has happened with him already as a hostage, which lessens the chances of another kidnapping.
Then again, children have been kidnapped
some 3-4 times now? by comparison M21 is only at his 2nd yet. So maybe he’ll
get taken once more before the end? It’ll be hard to summon that much worry by household this time and M21 will feel like shit for getting abducted yet again, so I don’t know how authors will manage to make it fresh. Crombel has been a villain since the start though, he needs to live upto his hype in any case so he better do something for once.
Also anon I don’t know if you’re into fan fictions, but there
are some really good ones who explore some nice Crombel/M21 in such
setting. Over the top of my head there’s these 3 where Crombel takes him back. if
you hadn’t read them yet, I’m sure you’ll really enjoy these and i’ll provide
more food for thought:
Please talk about Thomas and Martha Jefferson! They seem like such an otp yet there is hardly anything on them! And Thomas gets so much hate now bc of Hamilton.
*MY TIME HAS COME TO SHINE*
i like TJ, but lbh, he acted like an as*hole on many occasions haha. yet, his relationship with Martha is one of the rares things in his life that could redeem him imho. so yessssss: let me talk (A LOT) about the love story of Thomas & Martha Jefferson!!! it will make you cry, i promise
Martha was an accomplished musician who played the pianoforte and spinet, and also sang. When she was 18, she married Bathurst Skelton with whom she had a child named John, but less than two years after the marriage, Bathurst became ill and died in 1768. After the acceptable period of mourning was over, the wealthy and beautiful (all physical accounts of her describe her as such) new widow began attracting many suitors, including Thomas Jefferson. Thomas fell in love with Martha nearly straightaway, however, she did not share the same feelings for him when he first started calling on her. Neither did her father tho, who didn’t approve of the lower status Thomas Jefferson’s interests in his daughter. Thomas proposed to Martha in early 1771, but she did not accept. Thanks to an encouraging letter written to him by a friend, Mrs. Drummond, Thomas continued to pursue the relationship. According to family lore, two men waiting outside the Wayles’ house to see Martha heard her and Thomas, who got there before the other men, playing music and singing together. Upon hearing this, they gave up and went home, realising the tenderness between the two. Bonding over things, such as their mutual love of music and literature, Martha accepted Thomas’ proposal by June, 1771. Unlike marriages of generations past that considered monetary and social reasons for tying the knot over romantic feelings, the couple was one of a growing number of couples getting married out of love. Their wedding was planned for later that summer, however, the bad luck in child rearing that followed the Eppes-Wayles-Jefferson families around struck and caused them to postpone. Martha’s son died at just three and a half years old. The heartbroken Martha and Thomas rescheduled the wedding. During their courtship, Thomas Jefferson’s passion for Martha was so great that it caused him to ignore some of his revolutionary principles. In a blatant violation of the colonial boycott of British goods, Thomas ordered a “forte-piano” from England—along with special instructions about its construction to make sure it would be “worthy the acceptance of a lady for whom I intend it”. Thomas also had is work in progress, Monticello, renovated so it would be less of a bachelor pad and more of a family home. On December 23, he wrote out a wedding bond for the couple. In it, he described Martha as a “spinster”, later crossed out and replaced with “widow,” most likely by Martha’s brother-in-law and Thomas’ witness while writing the bond. The Skelton connection was not something Jefferson thought much about. Captivated by visions of their new life together, he had unconsciously edited Patty’s first husband out of the picture in his preparations for the wedding. On January 1, 1772, Martha and Thomas were married at Martha’s family’s home. After the wedding, to have their honeymoon at Monticello, they made the 100-mile trip in one of the worst snowstorms to hit Virginia. Eight miles from their destination, their carriage bogged down in 2–3 feet of snow and they had to proceed on horseback, riding the remaining distance over a rough mountain track. Arriving at Monticello late at night after the servants had banked the fires and retired, the couple settled in the freezing one-room, twenty-foot-square brick building,
still known by its nickname, the ‘Honeymoon Cottage’.Thomas lit a fire in the fireplace to get some warmth and they toasted their new home with a leftover half-bottle of french wine hidden behind a shelf of books, and “song and merriment and laughter”. Of his beloved wife, Jefferson once wrote, “in every scheme of happiness she is placed in the foreground of the picture as the principal figure. Take that away, and there is no picture for me.” Nine months after she and Thomas were married, Martha gave birth to the couple’s first of six children, also named Martha but called “Patsy.” Of the six kids, only Patsy and another daughter, Mary, survived childhood, and Patsy is the only one to live a long life. The loss of so many children took its toll on Martha, as did the pregnancies and childbirths themselves (Martha is described as being frail and her health declined with each pregnancy, as they all were physically tough and left her bedridden). When Thomas was Governor of Virginia, she twice had to flee Richmond and Monticello with her children when the British raided both locations. The state of her health during and post-pregnancies kept Thomas as close to home as possible so he could be with his ailing wife, sometimes choosing local Virginia politics over national roles. John Hancock, president of the Continental Congress, asked him to go on a diplomatic trip to Paris, which he declined so he could stay home with Martha. During the summer of 1776, Thomas had been receiving letters from Martha asking him to come home from the Continental Congress as soon as he could because she was very ill. On September 1, 1776, Thomas Jefferson, the only delegate from the state of Virginia still in Philadelphia, left his state with no vote to attend to his wife. His fears were not unfounded –Martha, like her mother and Mary at the age of 25, would eventually succumb to the difficulties of childbirth. When she was in good health, Martha and Thomas spent their time reading with each other and performing musical duets for themselves and guests. They each seem to be equally devoted to the other. Martha also proved to be very adept at running a home and managing a large plantation. As Jon Meacham noticed in his biography ‘Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power’, Thomas found “In Martha, the most congenial of companions, a woman who spoke his language. Their nights were filled with music and wine and talk—talk of everything. They seemed to have fully shared their lives with each other. He confided in her about politics (…) Smart and strong willed, she liked having her way, was not a woman of retiring nature or of quiet views. She had a mind of her own.” During the Revolutionary War, “ladies’ associations” begun in many states with the goal of collecting money and making clothing for the Continental Army. In 1780, Martha Washington nominated Martha Jefferson for the head of Virginia’s ladies association. In a letter to Eleanor Conway Madison (the only surviving complete letter written by Martha), she says, “I undertake with chearfulness the duty of furnishing to my country women an opportunity of proving that they also participate of those virtuous feelings with gave birth to it.” In May, 1782, Martha gave birth to her last child and never recovered from the ordeal. Thomas wrote a letter to close friend, James Monroe, stating, “Mrs. Jefferson has added another daughter to our family. She has ever since and still continues very dangerously ill.” *WARNING: tearjerker anecdote*
While on her deathbed, Martha and Thomas copied lines from one of their favorite novels, “Tristram Shandy” by Laurence Sterne. As she lay dying in their bed at just 33, Martha began writing a passage from the book but too weak, Thomas finished it, transforming the passage into a final dialogue between husband and wife: [written by Martha] Time wastes too fast: every letter I trace tells me with what rapidity life follows my pen. The days and hours of it are flying over our heads like clouds of windy day, never to return - more every thing presses on - [written by Thomas] and every time I kiss thy hand to bid adieu, every absence which follows it, are preludes to the eternal separation which we are shortly to make! It seems like Thomas didn’t have the strength to finish the entire quote: —Heaven have mercy upon us both. On September 6, 1782, a devastated Thomas could only bring himself to write simply in his account book, “My dear wife died this day at 11:45 A.M.” He was inconsolable in his loss and “was led from the room almost in a state of insensibility by his sister Mrs. Carr, who, with great difficulty, got him into his library where he fainted” —and not for a brief moment. Jefferson “remained so long insensible that they feared he would never revive.” After the funeral, he withdrew to his room for three weeks, pacing constantly, only allowing his sister to visit him. He was incoherent with grief, and perhaps surrendered to rage. There is a hint that he lost all control, according to his daughter Patsy, the “witness to many violent bursts of grief” : “the scene that followed (…) when, almost by stealth, I entered his room by night, to this day I dare not describe to myself”. He destroyed all her letters and didn’t keep any of her belongings -just a few survived-. In a letter to his sister-in-law, he even was alluding to the possibility of suicide: “This miserable kind of existence is really too burdensome to be borne (…) I could not wish its continuance a moment”, but he would endure for their children. Jefferson remained “inconsolable” – a word used by many biographers and Jefferson’s contemporaries to describe his condition – for months. He sobbed deeply at night, broke down when he tried to appear in public and talk about his deceased wife, and news of his grief and shattered condition spread through the colony. Not until after long weeks did Jefferson begin to resume a normal life when he wrote, “emerging from that stupor of mind which had rendered me as dead to the world as was she whose loss occasioned it. All my plans of comfort and happiness were reversed by a single event.” Jefferson erected a marble tombstone for his wife at Monticello, with the inscription stating she had been “torn from him by death.” On her gravestone, as a part of the epitaph, Jefferson added lines from Homer’s The Iliad: Nay if even in the house of Hades the dead forget their dead, yet will I even there be mindful of my dear comrade ; and below: This monument of his love is inscribed. Keeping a promise he allegedly made to Martha, he never remarried. Thomas never fully recovered form her death. He never mentioned his wife, even to his closest firends, and almost 40 years after her death, he still referred to her in his autobiography as “the cherished companion of my life, in whose affections, unabated on both sides, I had lived the last ten years in unchequered happiness.” After Jefferson’s death, in a secret drawer beside his bed, a folded paper with the “Tristram Shandy” text written by Martha on her deathbed was found –a lock of her hair carefully hidden inside–. Its wear showed that it was opened and refolded often.
hey so I saw that you were asking for prompts and I've (being the shameless jily fic devourer that I am) got a couple of ideas for you? ok *deep breath*: A ROBIN HODIN/MAID MARIAN AU and I need this because REASONS OK? or, if you haven't watched Robin Hood, then PLEASE GIVE ME ALL THE BAND AUS BC THEY"RE SUPER COOL AND REALLY NICE AND STUFF! k thanks, loved your youtube au btw :)
okay so i haven’t watched robin hood so i’ve written a band au and i hope you like it :)
James Potter drops onto the sofa with a carefree ease and a
smirk fixed on his lips. Every inch of him screams attractive from the tousled
black hair and a jaw sharp enough to cut diamonds to the way his calloused
knuckles drum against his thighs. He slips off his worn leather jacket and
tosses it to the side, a muscled arm reaching up to run ink stained fingers
through his hair. He is a bundle of energy, his hands never laying still as if
every nerve is charged with electricity. Behind his glasses lie hazel eyes that
hold a glint of mischief. It’s no wonder a trail of broken hearts follow James
wherever he goes, intentionally or not, with one smile he holds fragments of love
in his hands, just fragile and delicate enough to break with a breath.
If James is the boy parents warn their daughters about, Lily
is the girl you’d expect to be voted ‘most likely to succeed’ in a yearbook.
Dressed in tight black jeans and a grey knitted jumper she simultaneously looks
like she could be in a business meeting and on a fashion shoot, which in her
case is entirely possible. She takes a seat next to James and instantly he has
draped his too long limbs over her lap. The corner of her mouth lifts as she
swats at his knee but his legs remain and there appears to be no further
argument on the matter. Her eyes that hold galaxies sparkle as James pokes her
side and her burgundy painted nails gleam as her hand grabs James’s wrist as it
edges towards her ribs again.
James asks for a cup of tea and Lily asks if she can have
one as well. James raises his eyebrows at me, “I’m such a trend-setter.” Lily rolls
her eyes. Twenty minutes later, they both have their tea and Lily is eating a
bar of chocolate she’s retrieved from her handbag. James eyes it up and almost
instinctively she moves it out of his reach. “Remus bought it for me, get your
own.” Remus Lupin, of course being the bass (and occasionally keyboard) player
in James’s band, The Marauders, where
he plays guitar and shares the singing with best friend and fellow guitarist
Sirius Black. “It’s not that me and James aren’t best friends,” Lupin once
explained in an interview, “We’re all best friends but James and Sirius are
more than that. They’re like brothers, Sirius moved in with James when they
were sixteen and James’s parents basically adopted him.”
The Marauders had burst onto the music scene at the ages of
seventeen. Five years later, they have four albums, two which went platinum,
and a grand total of fourteen number one’s. They show no sign of slowing
though, as James explains they’re working on their fifth album and planning
their next world tour. It hasn’t been all plain sailing for the boys though,
one can hardly forget the scandal when the drummer Peter Pettigrew left the
band to join The Death Eaters just as
The Marauders had hit their peak, and then leaking the address of the flat that
they had all shared as a final kick in the teeth. Broken and betrayed the
remaining trio were forced to move and cancel the release of their upcoming
album (the third). They took a holiday to Scotland and spent a couple months
there rewriting and recording before returning to London and releasing the
completely new album, aptly named ‘Do Your Worst’, featuring the hit single
‘Set Yourself On Fire’ with the iconic lyric ‘I wish you would set yourself on
fire / because god knows I need cheering up’.
@thelastpilot I just finished reading The Wight of Jade and,boy oh boy do you write well! It’s been YEARS I didn’t feel like that bc of a book( and I’m talking poj level of feels). I love the way you designed Jade as a whole and the interaction between Wayzz and Nino is just perfect! That got me thinkng how the kwamis teach the children what they need and I just couldn’t stop myself from thinking of the other miraculous.
Mari needed to learn self confidence. Through all of season 1 we can see her doubting herself especially in the origins eps and everytime she does, Tikki is there to reassure her and show how much of a great heroine and friend she is.
Adrien,on the other hand, needed to learn
how to have fun
. Plagg is a prankster,he was the one to show Adrien that life was NOT all about doing what his dad wanted,but having fun as well.That is covered on TWOJ perfectly.The kwamis’ animal reflects into the bearer as something they need to learn to grow. This fits perfectly with Turtle!Nino,as he is sometimes too impulsive and in need to learn how to
,as shown so far in the fic.
Finally comes my point and my addition to this AU ,if you wouldn’t mind. I think that the best people for the other miraculous are:
Chloe as Honey Bee/Queen Bee
Everyone has this feeling she deserves to have a redemption arc in season2 the same way everyone has a feeling Hawkmoth is some famous designer we know. But what does Chloe needs to learn?Chole needs to learn how to bee a part of a group,and no one can tell me that a bee kwami wouldn’t be able to teach her that. She respects Ladybug more than anyone else, so if the same type of being that gives her idol powers gives her advice,as well as a chance to fight beside her heroes,the girl would listen.I don’t mean she would Marinette it up,but the akumafication rate of the school would drop considerably.
Alya as Volpina
Okay,Volpina was Lila for a while but as her akumafication(still not sure on the term here).Lila lied,suffered from it and learned: nothing. We,the audience, and even Marinette learned a thing or two about lies,but Lila didn’t,even promising to never be friends with LB even though she apologized .So,why Alya? Well,ever since LadyWifi we know for certain that if there’s something that our beloved reporter hates the most is lies.The ones told by her friends,the ones told by Chloe, even the ones her heroes tell Paris everyday not telling anyone their identities. I think the fox kwami could teach her that secrets and lies can,sometimes,be for the greater good. She would learn how to keep secrets herself and how her lies(ilusions) could fight evil.
Finally,don’t be mad but,
Sabrina as the Peacock
Sabrina had the smallest character development through season one. She was a side character to a side character,at best a number 2 her whole life as she was allways with Chloe. However,she isn’t evil,but rather fearful of losing her best friend. She did try to stand up for what she thought was right,following the righteousness her father taught her,only to find herself in a impossible situation: obey Chloe’s scheme or be left alone. But what does Sabrina needs to learn? Sabrina needs to learn her own worth. Little girl needs to learn how to take the spotlight,be the center of her life for once. The only time she separated herself from Chloe,she stuck to Marinette. She tries to find her worth in helping who she cares about,she needed that to feel she was worth having as a friend.I think it’s not far fetched to assume she learns this from the Peacock Kwami. I can clearly see Sabrina standing on even ground with Chloe which,at first, would piss her off,but only to be happy for her friend finally seeing herself the way she does but could never put in words.
That’s it,sorry if I fanboyed too hard,but I judt couldn’t not. Regarding the miraculous users,some may not agree with me but then again,this is what a fandom is all about,right? What do
Pilot:: ooooh now this is an interesting bit. I like the different angle with Peackock!Sabrina, I hadnt considered it before. I like Alya for the fox for that exact reason you listed, and that was my intention with Nino! I love how you picked up on that, I wanted the turtle to give him balance and perspective, slow him down.
