I was watching Black Butler: Book of Circus and noticed this. When this scene is shown, Sebastian tells Our!Ciel to use any person as a chess piece, even if that means they will die. Could that over there be Real!Ciel? That could just be Vincent tho.
Okay so does everybody remember this little scene right here?
but wait, there’s also this
Call me a huge fuckin dork but I live for interactions like this between the two. Like I’m not trying to ship them or anything here. But like, it warms my heart to see both of them enjoying themselves and being competitive dorks. I’m just so happy Yana decided to base a drawing off of that scene because it really shows a huge development between the bond of a master and his butler, as did the entire chapter. So kudos to Yana for making me a pile of mush. :O
How would Sebastian deal with a s/o who almost always uses profanity and is very unladylike?
He’d find it funny especially in a social event where she has to be prim and proper at all times. If she swears using words like “God” or “Christ” (so words with a religious connotation), he would cover his mouth with one gloved hand, his eyes sparkling with mirth and his shoulders would shake the longer she stood there taking the Lord’s name in vain. If she used normal swears like “fuck” or “shit”, he’d just chuckle and mutter a “Language”, a gentle sort of chiding. If she combined them? Well, you’d be gifted with the pure sight of Sebastian turning away from the group, a hand over his mouth and his shoulders shaking before he turns back with a light cough, still smirking.
In terms of acting unladylike, he’d admonish her but really wouldn’t care either way. He’s not exactly the pinnacle of good behaviour himself, so. if it’s crucial that she behave though, he’d just shake his head minutely and looks at her disapprovingly but makes no real move to stop her behaviour.
A savior, a mentor, a guider, and a protector was the butler. A damner, a forsaker, a condemner, and the ultimate means to an end was the demon. The two were in one man who was the Earl’s shadow. One would accuse him to be a seducer, another would argue that he was a lover, but even those who had their suspicions never knew anything definite. Only the walls of the manor knew the truth. Not even the servants knew what the manor did.
