*A Smoke Shop/Hippie AU (trigger warning for abuse) Now on AO3
It took all of Andrew’s considerable self-control to wait while the cashier rang him up and bagged the liquor. He wasn’t thinking rationally. His brain had connected the man and Rain, the bruise and the fist, and now the rest of him was itching to deliver some payback. He felt reckless and violent, like he had felt when he had beaten the men who had assaulted Nicky. The drugs in his system were doing little to inhibit his aggression and that was a problem. It was all one big fucking problem because if he lost it here he could lose everything. Would Wymack give him another chance? Would he be allowed to?
A/N: I’M SO SORRY I ABANDONED YOU GUYS BUT I’M BACK NOW AND ALL IS RIGHT WITH THE WORLD!!!
Half of you thought you could handle it, the other half didn’t care. It was only a few drinks after all, but combined with you being drunk on anger, they made for something more potent than alcohol. You don’t know where you are, and it honestly doesn’t matter anymore as long as you’re getting away.
May I have your attention please?
May I have your attention please?
Will the real Lord Saladin please stand up?
I repeat, will the real Lord Saladin please stand up?
We’re gonna have a problem here..
Y'all act like you never seen Iron Banner before
Jaws all on the floor like Eris and Cayde just burst in the door
And started sassing her ass worse than before
They first were fightin’, throwing him over furniture (Ah!)
It’s the return of the… “Ah, wait, no way, you’re kidding,
He didn’t just say what I think he did, did he?”
And Lord Shaxx said… nothing, you idiots!
Lord Shaxx’s dead, he’s locked in my basement! (Ha-ha!)
PvE players love Lord Saladin
[*vocal turntable: chigga chigga chigga*]
“Saladin, I’m sick of him
Look at him, walking around grabbing his Felwinters Lie
Flipping the Efrideets Spear.” “Yeah but he’s so cute though!”
Yeah, I probably got a couple of screws up in my head loose
But no worse, than what’s going on in your Zavala’s’ bedrooms
Sometimes, I wanna get on Crucible and just let loose, but can’t
But it’s cool for Ikora Rey to go 57-2
“My Shotguns in your back, my Shotguns on your back”
And if I’m lucky, you gonna get a face full of it
And that’s the message that we deliver to other Guardians
And expect them not to know what a blink and shot package is
Of course they gonna know what shotgun rain is
By the time they hit rank 2
They got the Elimination, don’t they?
“We ain’t nothing but PvE players..” Well, some of us PVP stars
Who cut other people open like cantaloupes [SLURP]
But if we can shotgun rain and snipe for days
Then there’s no reason that I can make Efrideets with Final Round.
[*EWWW!*] But if you feel like I feel, I got the antidote
Guardians wave your AR, sing the chorus and it goes
[Chorus – Eminem (repeat 2x):]
‘Cause I’m Lord Saladin, yes I’m the real Saladin
All you other Lord Saladins are just imitating
So won’t the real Saladin please stand up,
Please stand up, please stand up?
Lord Shaxx don’t gotta cuss in his matches to sell records;
Well I do, so fuck him and fuck you too!
You think I give a damn about Unbroken?
Half of you critics can’t even stomach me, let alone stand me
“But Saladin, what if you win, wouldn’t it be weird?”
Why? So you guys could just lie to get me here?
So you can, sit me here next to Eris Morn?
Yo Shit, Ir-yut better switch me chairs
So I can sit next to Crota and Thanalok
And hear 'em argue over who she gave head to first
Little bitch, put me on blast on Tower’s PA
“Yeah, he’s cute, but I think he’s married to Everis, hee-hee!”
I should download her audio on MP3
And show the whole world how you gave Lord Saladin VD[AHHH!]
I’m sick of you little girl and boy groups, all you do is annoy me
So I have been sent here to destroy you [bzzzt]
And there’s a not another one just like me
Who cuss like me; who just don’t give a fuck like me
Who dress like me; walk, talk and act like me
It just might be the next best thing but not quite me!
I’m like a head trip to listen to, cause I’m only giving you
Things you joke about with your friends inside your living room
The only difference is I got the balls to say it
In front of y'all and I don’t gotta be false or sugarcoated at all
I just get on the mic and spit it
And whether you like to admit it [*ERR*] I just shit it
Better than ninety percent of you rappers out can
Then you wonder how can kids eat up these albums like Shotgun shells
It’s funny; 'cause at the rate I’m going when I’m thirty
I’ll be the only person in the Control Mode dominating
Splitting Guardians heads when I’m firin off with Jergens
And I’m shooting but this whole bag of ammo isn’t working
And every single person is a Lord Saladin lurking
He could be working at The Reef, spitting on your engrams.
[*HACH*] Or in the Tower Front circling
Screaming “I don’t give a fuck!”
With his windows down and his system up
So, will the real Saladin please stand up?
And put one of those fingers on each hand up?
And be proud to be outta your mind and outta control
And one more time, loud as you can, how does it go?
So I was rewatching 4x02 and was suddenly hit with a case of deja vu, which promptly spiralled me into looking closer at Chris Argent in season 4.
I know someone else has already pointed out (I don’t remember who, claim your find if you see this!) that when Chris “badassed” himself into that warehouse to steal the yellow wolfsbane in 4x10 we got a closeup of his shoes….
….which does look slightly like the shoes the one who stole the Hale money wore back in 4x02.
What made my meta senses tingle was the shot right before this mysterious person struts into the vault and he/she throws down these cans of tear/smoke gas
And I was like…. wait a minute… I’ve seen something like this before. Remember that scene at the Argent’s in season 3a when Agent McCall interogates Allison, Scott and Isaac, and Allison distracts them with…
ding ding ding! That does look like it could be the same kind. So does that mean that Chris is our thief? We’ve got similar shoes and a case of similar if not the same kind of weapon we know he as a federally licensed arms dealer is allowed to keep in stock.
So i decided to take a closer look at Chris this season. And i’m probably not the only one who thinks he’s has been acting kinda off with his stony face, his shaggy beard and soulless eyes. Of course he’s mourning the loss of Allison and so it’s easy to brush it off as his way of dealing with the grief.
But we know that characters on Teen Wolf has a denency to go for revenge rather than therapy. Maybe Chris isn’t all that different?
Think about it - Chris suspected Kate was alive after Derek found her shotgun shells in the preserve in 3b and has been looking for her ever since, this he tells Derek. Is Chris and Kate working together? Or is Chris using Kate to get what he want? Did he deliver the tape that sent her to the vault so Chris could steal the money? and how did he know about it?
I’m not so sure, but he’s acting suspicious enough that i’m not ruling it out.
Let’s look at the timeline
4x04: After the vault was robbed a week goes by before we learn that Scott has sent a text to Argent but hasn’t heard back from him. The assumption is that he’s still in France, because Scott comments that he couldn’t afford to call. Scott bites Liam that same night and Argent shows up in the preserve to help him trap Liam the next night, saying “he got his text”.
During this week the deadpool is set in motion, The mute kills the alcotts and Violet and Garret kills Demarco. Lydia “banshees” the code.
In 4x05 Derek and Chris visit the Hale vault
Chris is acting weird. He seems lost and dejected. Talks about sending kate off to werewolf-jail. We see him walking towards the safe.
The shoes resemble that of the benefactor.Let’s see if the strut is the same..
Can’t be 100 % sure, but the walk is similar…
He stops and then the camera lingers on the scorch marks on the floor after the bomb thingy - why? Because he’s logging it as a clue or because he’s the one who put it there?
4x06: Garrett has poisioned Liam and put in in a well and is blackmailing Scott to help break Violet out of the prison transport, but Kate gets to her first. Scott and Chris tracks her to the Argent warehouse where she’s taken Violet to interrogate her.
Two things caught my attention.
1. More close-ups of Chris’ shoes.
Like wtf? Is Jeff trying to tell us something? The only other person we’ve had close-ups of their shoes this season is Braeden as far as i know.
I don’t know if that’s intentional or not, but the second thing i noticed sort of ties them together in a way
2. shotgun shells
Chris lets the bullet fly against the berserkers, and we get a nice shot of the shotgun shells raining down on the floor
Now i’m not a weapons expert or anything, but they do look very similar to the shells Derek and Malia found out in the preserve looking for Satomi’s pack…
And we all know what happened to them…
…. and who was found there shot…
Did you have anything to do with this Chris?
EDIT! added:Chris then gets a visit from Araya and is reminded of the Hunter’s code. I don’t know about you but this is not the face of a man at peace - looks mighty angry if you ask me - is it because the Calaveras are butting in, or are you an a revenge spree?
4x10: In this episode we get another close-up of his shoes
once… twice… thrice….
Also, who are you planning on using this on? And who are these people growing it?
Honestly, i’m not sure what to make of all this.. Anyone got a theory, please chime in :)
The well known Vytal Festival comes around every two years to the world of Remnant. A celebration of peace and unity after the Great War that took many lives. A tournament is held for the best fighters to show off their skill in the arena. Not this year, this year the peaceful tournament turned dark.
Mercury Black was a victim of a distasteful attack by Yang Xiao Long.
Black of Haven and Long of Beacon were chosen in the first randomized singles match of the tournament. At the beginning, it was an even fight. Black used his famous kicky kicky verses Yangs punchy punchy. Black appeared to have won when he used his shotgun boots to rain on Long’s parade. Yet, Long remained in the fight with only 16% of aura left.
Yang Xiao Long then went full super saiyan to finish this battle. She emerged victorious in first singles match of the game. In her victory and spite, she shot one of her opponent’s legs thus leading to Long’s arrest. Even with video evidence Long seemed to be shocked after her own actions of violence.
No statements have been made from Team RWBY or Beacon Academy. There are also no updates on Mercury Black’s condition but our thoughts and prayers are with him and his team.
