Anonymous said:Hi there! I’m sure your ask box is super full, but if it’s not too much trouble, could I have some prompts for the villain’s right hand/closest assistant being crushed after the villain is defeated, dies, or loses their mind? Thank you, and I adore your writing!
1) “I’ll take whatever punishment you see fit.” The lackey braced themselves, surrendered themselves over without hesitation. The guilt churned nauseous in their stomach, clenched in their throat. “I’m at your mercy.” “You’re always at my mercy,” came the villain’s reply. “Fucking up doesn’t really change that.” The lackey flinched at the reminder of their failure, however resigned they were to their fate. The villain’s hand closed around their throat - but not constricting, secure and firm. “Look at me.” The villain waited until they did. “Your life is mine, your mistakes are mine, you have sworn yourself to me. Don’t trouble yourself over this. If a weapon fails its because the one who commands it didn’t do so well enough. It’s not your fault, so be at ease, and help me fix this. Alright?”
2) “You want me to hurt you, is that it? Tell you that you’re a failure? Punish you?” “I would deserve it if you did.” “That’s not what I asked.” “I - no.” They didn’t think they could bear that, but they were equally unsure they could bear being forgiven. “I don’t know.” “Were you disloyal to me?” “I failed you.” “Were you disloyal to me?” “No - I would never - I’d rather-” the lackey shuddered. The villain’s hand smoothed over their bruised temple. “Then there is nothing to forgive, and no punishment necessary. You did your best. That is all anyone can ask of you. Now, be calm, and tell me what happened.”
3) “You’re a wonder,” the hero stared at them in astonishment. The sidekick’s heart slammed. Normally, people didn’t really pay them much attention at all, let alone look at them like that. They cleared their throat - a pleased, too hot, fluttering feeling squirming in their chest. “It was nothing.” “It really wasn’t.”
4) “Any chance you can yell at me when my brain isn’t splitting open?” Everything hurt. They really didn’t need a lecture on how they should have done better, been braver, or stronger - more heroic. “Actually, I wanted to apologise,” the hero said softly. “I feel I’ve rather treated you badly, as of late.
5) The hero watched the villain’s sidekick - the violence, the eruption, the throwing themselves against the walls of their cell, snarling at anyone who got close. Vicious. (Sometimes it’s kinder to put a rabid dog down, said their commander.) Hurting. Heartbroken. Hollowed. The hero approached, shutting the door quietly behind them. They adopted the same mannerisms, the same way of speaking, as the villain once possessed. “Enough of that, now. You’re opening your wounds. Be still.” The sidekick froze, quivering, responding to the tone on dazed and hopeless instinct.
4) “It’s over, you don’t have to do this.” “You don’t understand, do you? You took my world from me. So now I’m going to take yours from you.”

Holy cow I’ve been binge-reading webtoons the whole weekend! it’s so GOOD and addicting when you really get sucked into the story! I couldnt stop help me now lol. Lmao fml The first webtoon which is almost finished is “Untouchable” which is a vampire-romance story bout a vampire model who meet this untouchable germtrauma freak handsome dude and they fall in love with alot of drama and yada yada. Alot similar like Orange Marmalade story but with a better ending I’d say :D
The second webtoon I finished reading season 1 & 2 in 2 days is Sidekicks.
It was one hell of a ride reading this series but I freaking loved it!
I actually read a few chapters of this series a long time ago but dropped it for some reason until I picked it up again out of curiousity(wtf what have I missed ?! Dx). This webtoon is about sidekicks and superheroes with GREAT story and epic battles !! Just as good as Tower of god. The thing I loved about this is the character development of female protagonist Lamia and how you can in the beginning hate this one character and changed your mind really quickly. There are some characters that make you so mad that you just wanna jump and kill them yourself hahahaha also yes I’m totally hooked for this series. Darkslug ftw XDDD Big recommend !
Jonathan Brandis Interview:
I:“Do you ever see yourself as a role model?”
J: “Um, yeah. It’s tough to recongnize yourself sometimes as a role model. I don’t know if I can honestly say I am. I think to some extent I am. I mean, I try to say the right things and give the right advice. But still, I’m only a person.” I:“When you think of a role model, who comes to mind first?”
J:“I think of somebody who’s proven himself. I can’t think of a particular person, but I think of somebody who’s proven himself and deserves to be where they are right then and there. Someone who’s worked hard. I think that my biggest role models are people that have maybe struggled for a while and then finally gotten to their destination.”
