Is Kara in love with Mon-El?

So, I’ve been thinking about this a lot and I’ve come to the conclusion that she is not. And it’s not just wishful thinking and/or because I can’t stand him. There are actual clues in canon that show that Kara is not in love with her boyfriend. Here’s why:

Exhibit A

The way Kara acts around her love interests. She gets flustered, blushes a lot, acts awkward around them. 

around James:

around Adam:

around Mon-El: error 404 example not found. I can’t recall a single Karamel scene where Kara acts like this.

Bonus: around Lena:

Exhibit B

The trope that a love interest watches and looks at their crush dreamily as they leave.

James:

I know that Mon-El looked at Kara like this at least once too, but I’m really not in the mood to gif him so I’m gonna skip that since that’s not the point of this post. The point is to show that Kara is not in love with Mon-El, not vice versa.

But another person also looked at her like this, and even received this look from Kara herself in the latest Supergirl episode…

Exhibit C

These are actual quotes that Kara said about/to Mon-El:

  • “You are so selfish!”
  • “You are still the same macho egotistical Daxamite!”
  • “It’s not just the jealousy. It’s the patronizing ego thing.”
  • “Well, the first bit about your infuriating male ego, that part I meant.”
  • “More like you’re an arrogant dude-bro.”
  • “I can handle Mxyzptlk, but it’s Mon-El who’s infuriating.”

She’s never said things like these to James, and definitely not as excessively as she’s complaining about Mon-El. On the contrary, she said “You make me better.”

Another bonus; things she said about/to Lena:

  • “Kara Danvers believes in you.”
  • “I believe in her.”
  • “You are too good and too smart to follow in her path.”
  • “Now you have someone that will stand up for you, always.”

Exhibit D

This is Kara’s reaction when Mon-El first tells her about his feelings for her:

Exhibit E

This is Kara’s reaction when Mon-El says “I love you” for the first time:

In conclusion: I honestly don’t believe for a second that Kara has feelings for Mon-El. The most logical explanation is that she felt obligated to give Mon-El a chance because that’s what everyone told her to do or that she felt lonely and Mon-El knew what it’s like to lose a planet.
We know how Kara behaves around the person she’s crushing on. There are patterns. And we can’t see any of these patterns when Kara is around Mon-El. Besides the occasional kiss and “I’m happy” she doesn’t show any signs of having feelings for him. They haven’t even gone on any dates, not counting the one she took him on to “save” Lena.

Important Discussion - Writers Have Lives Too, They Aren’t Your Machines and Never Will Be.

I’ve seen this issue across Tumblr in various fandoms to various writers: People treating writers like machines and taking their writing for granted.

Newsflash: Writing takes time, writing takes thought, writing is free, and writing IS HARD.

People don’t have to share their writing, but they do, and they do it for you, the reader for your enjoyment. There aren’t many things that writers want, and it’s not that hard to give:

-Feedback (ie, compliments, reactions, anything positive)

-Likes/Kudos

-Random asks just to drop by like ‘how your day?‘ or ‘I loved this fic!’

Instead I see things like ‘Where’s your masterlist?’, ‘Your masterlist isn’t woroking’, ‘Make a part 2 to this’

It doesn’t hurt to say please once in awhile, and it sure as hell doesn’t hurt ot look for yourself. I’ve seen people asking writers where their masterlist and if they can have a link even though the link is in their bio or clearly on their home page. Honestly, if you tell somebody their links aren’t working, that doesn’t help, it causes more work for the writer. You tell them ‘ the link to part _ of ___ doesn’t works’. If the writer has linked the previous parts on the post, you don’t ask for part 1, you click it yourself.  If they have ask guidelines, read it, don’t ignnore it!

[Refer HERE to Request Do’s and Don’t’s]

I’m going to use my dear friend @bonniebird as and example. Her blog is VERY EASY to navigate through!

If a writer has closed requests, save them the work and DON’T SEND REQUESTS!!

Also using bae @amylillian22.

ACTORS AND CHARACTERS ARE STILL PEOPLE, RESPECT THEIR FEELINGS

Now, let’s talk important things, don’t send hate. Literally don’t, it only de-motivates a writer which is NOT what you want to happen. I don’t care if they aren’t releasing the fic you requested or the next part of your favorite series, they’re still people and they have lives. The same goes for their own opinions, if you don’t like don’t follow. Send anon love, support your writers and show them that. It doesn’t hurt to spread love.

[Please refer to @deansdirtylittlesecretsblog #StopTheHate post HERE]

I’m gonna use @winchesters-favorite-girl as an example for this one.

Writing is hard. Fics are a blessing, don’t abuse it.

So please, spread anon love, respect your writers, don’t spread hate. Hate isn’t a nice thing to recieve and I’m sure you wouldn’t want to say it to them in person. I know this sounds like I’m an old person talking to a 6-year old, but this was something were taught since then. Don’t be immature, be the bigger person.

Respect others, be patient, and don’t be rude.

@thewillowbends​  (Sure would be nice to be able to do the reply-to-replies thing, but for context they were replying to that Onslaught/Blast Off post)

Yes, it is 100% canon, as of the most recent issue of (tragically-cancelled) Till All Are One! They also aren’t the only gay couple, just the most recently established one.

(You didn’t ask for a crash course on gay robots, but I’m gonna give you one)

I’m still very sad about TAAO’s cancellation, but the good news is there are two other ongoing Transformers titles in the same continuity, and both of them have some canonly gay robots!

Optimus Prime (the series, not the character), has these two lovely lesbians:

and the other ongoing, More Than Meets the Eye/Lost Light (same series, changed titles) has so many gay robots, and unlike the other ongoing titles, the gay couples are major characters!

You have Chromedome and Rewind, the first couple to be established in the series (officially married robot husbands):

They’ve also heavily implied that one of the other bots who mostly hangs out in the other titles–Prowl–is Chromedome’s ex.

Then you have Cyclonus and Tailgate, who aren’t married yet, but they’re getting there:

There was also a brief gay love triangle going with Cyclonus, Tailgate, and a guy named Getaway. And Brainstorm–another fairly significant character–was stated to have been in love with another guy.

It also seems like they’re going somewhere love-triangley with these three:

but nothing’s really canon yet.

They’ve also heavily implied that Optimus Prime was in love with a (male) Senator before the war. There’s just. There’s a lot of canon gay in the IDW Transformers series, is what I’m saying.

hey! i love your blog and LOVE your writing even more, are there any other writers like yourself who you'd recommend?? thank you! 💖

hi there! thank you for telling me that!! you’re the absolute sweetest! hmm well to be honest i don’t read -that- much seventeen fic!! I’ll be honest I’m very picky and the fandom itself is still pretty young and exploring their writing skillz, so I read a lot (A LOT) of bts fanfics, the writers i’ve met are SUPER DUPER wonderful and are amazing if anyone ever wants a bts fic rec hmu

but if you want some svt writers i got a few (ik this seems like a lot but here)!

  • @dumbbelle doesn’t really have conventional writing per-say but her sense of humor IS ON POINT LIKE GRAPHITE AND WOW i wish i had her sense of humor after reading move oolong (SEE THE PUN SHE CHARACTERIZES SO WELL) if she ever dabbles back in that game im so on boarddd
  • @caratcorner has a lovely lovely team of talented writers and they deserve all the love in the world! their writing has a very chill vibe that just makes me smile and wanna lay back in my bed and dream about svt tbh LOL Mornings with Seventeen and To Love And Love Again (which inspired my dj!Vernon) are two of my favs
  • @spcywolf hoshi. whisper. amazing. one of the best characterizations for svt i’ve ever encountered and wow as sinful as whisper was i never felt so blessed in my life
  • had to put @versigny right after (i think of her nd spcy as two lil peas in a pod) and they’re she’s not really known for writing svt BUT SHE SHOULD BE im waitin for the damn to BREAK and suddenly she goes on a rampage but whenever once in a blue moon she breaks out a svt thing and i get softer than ricecakes in the summer sun. Something Borrowed has my soul 
  • @wen-junehui a fairly new writer and SUPER DUPER PROUD OF HER FOR GOING EVERY DANG STEP OF THE WAY she doesn’t post that often but when she does i can’t help but smile like an idiot (she’s gonna read this later and call me an idiot) whenever she posts something new! under the same sky and baby, you’re my firework make me giggle like a poopin two year old 
  • i don’t know if @captcoups is still protected or not (PLEASE FORGIVE ME if im sharing things that aren’t meant to be shared) but their drabbles are quirky and the way that they portray the guys are just so refreshing somewhere out there really fulfilled my zero-fucks-given relationship i’ve always wanted with vern, and it just felt so casual nd colloquial 
  • finally @choco-seventeen was probably the very first seventeen writer i got into contact with and its probably the single best choice i ever made in my tumblr career!! <3 ur new fav aunt! cold water literally blew me INTO THE WATER and love cafe reminded me how much jeonghan owns me 

happy reading, anon! i have a fic rec tag if anything, and if you still need more im aff’ed with @kwritersnet and they have a treasureTROVE OF LOVELY FICS

anonymous asked:

Why are practicing certain things considered "cultural appropriation", can't we practice what we wish and still respect the culture of origin?

Here is my opinion of this, as a white person. 

Cultural appropriation is taking something out of a closed religion or culture - in most cases, in which the people of said religion / culture have asked for their things to be left alone - and then skewing those things past their original context and purpose, manipulating them to suiting our own needs (or just ignoring the needs of why the practice exists in the first place, and trust me this can have just as much impact too), and then still having the audacity to refer to it by the same name.

You cannot be respectful of something if you are using it after someone has requested you don’t. There is no respect in continuing to do someone after you’ve been asked not to, and not only that, by not doing it how it should be. Like, severely taking something out of its context, manipulating its meaning to be for your own purpose, and not actually what it’s supposed to be, is just way disrespectful of the culture, the practice, and the people who live it every day. 

Not to mention, doing shit that way, you’ll never really appreciate the true value of the thing as it’s meant to be done. Butchering stuff like that, you’re not actually doing the thing, and you won’t get the same things out of it, so you’re not even really doing the thing you took in the first place, so why did you take it in that manner? 

(And none of this is targeted *at* you, anon; I’m just using “you” as a general thing to try to get my point across about this.) 

Being respectful of a culture and practice would be making sure it is okay for you to be using the thing; doing copious amounts of research to understand the practice and what it really means and the history of why it’s done; (I think this is important, but others will say it may not be so necessary) finding a teacher from within the culture / religion who has authority on the matter to guide you on how to do the thing correctly; being mindful of the practice’s context / history / meaning and performing it in that context, or at least as closely as you can.


When it comes to things regarding cultural appropriation, here’s what I think it really comes down to: WHY do you want to do that thing? What do you honestly think you’d be getting out of it, as someone who can be seen as “outside” the culture? Do you think you would be getting the same thing out of it, not being involved in the culture / religion as other people are? And, from there, is there nowhere else you can get that thing, at least similarly?

Like, for a very specific example, say you want to smudge. What is it about smudging that you like / makes you want to do it? Oh, you want to burn herbs to cleanse your space? Well, good news for you, there are other practices that do that, without using a term from a closed religion that actually means way more than burning herbs to cleanse a space in the first place. What you want can be found outside of the closed religion, using more respectful terms (i.e. “smoke cleansing,” “recaning,” etc.), so is it really necessary for you to want / use that certain thing from a closed culture?

Like, do we really NEED these closed practices? Do we not already have alternatives? Why do we need to have *all* of it? 


And I guess that’s what I’ve got to say about this. *shrugs* Whenever it comes down to talking about cultural appropriation, I am always so worried that I’ve miscommunicated something, or left it out, which is why I’m so hesitant to post about this stuff in the first place, why this has been in my drafts for days and I’ve been reflecting on it. 

Especially as white as I am - it isn’t my place to be using my voice to talk over people, the actual people involved in these sorts of things happening to them.

And you’re gonna get so many different answers. You’ll get different answers for as many people as you ask. Even different people from the same culture can have different views on others using their things, and that’s when it can get really confusing. But you asked me, and this is what I have to say. 

Hopefully it’s enough, and I’ll try to talk more about it if anyone has questions. But I’m not arguing. If you’re just gonna come on this post saying “well I still think I should be allowed to use this how I want to because I want to and I’ll do it however I want!”, well… Actually, don’t; don’t come on to this post doing that, at all.

also I’m never gonna do a follow forever because I’m too lazy but I’ve been really grateful to talk to a lot of y'all through the process of my dad going into the hospital in April and finally being released from the rehab facility tomorrow because he’s able to walk again and stuff and I appreciate all of y'all so much that I’ve talked to in that time even if it wasn’t about that specifically, so I just kind of went through my messages and wrote some stuff about y'all lmao. no I didn’t put it alphabetically because I only thought about that when I was nearly done and I’m nothing if not bitter and petty;

Keep reading

Okay I’m just gonna simplify my thing because I got some confusion about what I was even talking about. [ I’m sorry I’m very tired X’D ]

1. I’m not a white nationalist and I don’t sympathize with them, previous post was just trying to illustrate a hypocrisy about laughing at some dummies while doing the same thing and being sort of like those dummies.

2. I just don’t like content censorship. At all. Even if some media goes against my principles, I will defend its right to exist. If I see you bashing an artist or content creator because you don’t like what happens in their narrative, you’re going to lose a lot of my respect. If you think content should be censored, then the respect of a creator like myself who makes frequently awful content shouldn’t matter much to you anyway.

YIKES! 😂

Sorry to disturb Coachella**
Apparently there’s a person ( @luxury-indya​ ) running around talking a lot of shit about me, and @tesschiu​ with invalid information dragging other people into it, to a person who doesn’t share the same “snake” characteristics as her(IC and OOC). I didn’t know people spent this large amount of time being pressed about “How someone looked before”, “How long they’ve been on tumblr”, and “Why they don’t reblog/Fuck with you”… To answer your obvious and concerned worries about US. I’m here to tell you that This is why I don’t fuck with you. You’re always in someones DM’s talking shit about people. Even if Tess wasn’t my friend I still wouldn’t fuck with you just because of what you did with her and AJ(you want them to break up so bad….Hahha). I don’t know why you’re THIS concerned about people. What did I PERSONALLY do to you? Do you not have any other way to hold a conversation? or are you that envious of Tess because she has the guy you want that even her friends bother your soul??🤔 Then you call people groupies for commenting on my post but yet you used to/and still do the same thing to other people………..Sigh*
I know after this you’re gonna try to find someone else to sit and gossip about people with. I do hope you find that person. Someone who shares the same ways as you so your bullshit won’t get aired out to other people, especially the ones who you’re talking about. Y’all have to stop gossiping with people about other people. It may seem fun in the moment but who knows how long that “secret” will last if you gossip with someone whose friends with the person you’re talking about😩 …… Btw, Shiny’shin sent me those screenshots so don’t run to King with your bullshit. Shin is her bestfriend after all. You didn’t think that one through….😂

(OOC: How old are you? 12? This is what y’all do on here? Damn…. Life must be that miserable forreal. All this over personal beef that you took to RP….Tese and Tess are NOT REAL PEOPLE. THIS IS NOT REAL. SO THEIR LOOKS WILL CHANGE WHEN THE OWNER FEELS THEY NEED TO BE TWEAKED…..This is THE SIMS 4/RP……LMAO)

What's this thing about jikook and special days in Korea? I've seen it mentioned but I've never seen it explained. If you've posted it before I'm sorry, I didn't see it. I'd be super grateful if you would link it. Thank you for all the answers!

Hey there! I think I’ve never done any in-depth explanation on this, nor have i seen anyone explain.Honestly speaking, I think I’m in no position to talk, as I’m not familiar w Korean culture, so I’ll try to link all the interactions between them on these days instead of explaining in details what these days are all about. Prob just a brief one. ^^

/cracks knuckles/ Here we go.

From what I read, apart from public holidays in Korea, there’s also a special day on the 14th of every month for couples/singles to celebrate. E.g there’s Pepero Day, Valentine’s Day, Diary Day etc.For some inexplicable reason, Jimin and Jungkook were together on these days, and I’m not saying this without a concrete basis, because it’s mostly proven by Jimin n Jungkook’s Twitter uploads,as though they wanted to scream to the world “look at us”

Let’s start from January.

January 14th- Diary Day where couples give diaries as gifts

Note that in this video, there’s only the two of them, or maybe another member, who didn’t want to be included, which is pretty unlikely since Jimin always includes others, even if its for 0.00001 sec. So my bet is, they’re the only ones in the car (apart from the manager/driver). Date? 14th January, at approximately 11:51 pm KST. Coincidence? Maybe, but that’s not all.

(Important: Today was when Seoul Music Awards took place. Let me give you a hint… Orange hair + blue suits + backhug + whisper in the ear…got it? Yep! Jungkook gave Jimin a back hug on stage in front of hundreds of ppl on this day. Amazing, right?)

February 14th- Valentine’s Day

The video was uploaded today at 9:06 pm, but they had gone out two days ago, on the 12th. My question is, why on the 14th? Notice that Jimin was filming Jungkook initially, before he panned out and included Jin? (his caption was bout Jin tho) If you were here, you would’ve prob seen some posts on Jin being the chaperone in Jikook’s dates.Some time later after this “date” Namjoon revealed that he once went to Han River with Jikook. Putting two and two together, doesn’t it make more sense?

March 14th-White Day where guys give gifts to their girls

This time around, Jeon Jungkook was the one who uploaded the video, 2 MINUTES before White Day ended (11;58 pm) Please, please look at the caption “Jiminie hyung is sleepy, somebody please tuck him in” and please appreciate the precious time he took just to edit this video. He’s obviously in love with his hyung  

Later, Jimin left two comments saying “It’s really shocking Jungkook-ah I told you not to upload it right #JIMIN“ and “This hyung will go back home real quick. Be aware #JIMIN “

Either he took it himself and sent it to jungkook or Jungkook recorded it and they’re together, both of which are completely fine with me.

May 5th-Children’s Day

On this day, Jimin posted not one but three videos, in which jungkook was included in TWO of them. I can’t link any more vid so here’s the tweets

JiminxJungkook 1

JiminxJungkook 2

May 14th–Yellow Day/Rose Day

No video from both of them, but they still had quite a no of moments today.They were all over each other, from Music Core (where Jungkook became the MC) to their fanmeeting. Jimin did tweet something about Jungkook mc-ing and ofc he had to include the two hashtags #jimin and #kkuk. No twitter update but still, what a wonderful day for both of them.

Massage

September 14th- A Day before Chuseok and Photo Day

I really truly find this mindblowing. Jimin posted a funny video and again, like many other times, Kook was in it. The caption was basically “Happy Korean Thanksgiving everyone” but wow…Photo day landed on the very same day. Now…coincidence again? I’m gonna be trash and say no, this thing has occurred too many times for it to be claimed a coincidental event.

Here’s the Chuseok Video

//Jimin’s birthday October 13th//

Not related to anything but it’s still considered special, right? Especially for Jikook. Today, Jimin posted a video of him and Kook. Like always, no one else besides Kook. Also, we got to witness this

a very very special day for jimin AND Jungkook indeed.

That’s all i think. Id like to apologize if I make any mistake in this post. Oh and before I forget there’s also April’s Fools Day where Jikook dedicated the whole twitter to themselves (and Yoon/seok too). What do you say about Jikook and special days? Suspicious? Fishy?intentional? Coincidence? I’ll leave it for you to conclude bc I believe you’d have known my respond to this by now ^^

I would like to wish you a Happy Happy New Year in advance! May 2017 be filled with positivity, happiness, success, and more Jikook!!!! <3<3<3

Husband Reacts to 1D: Little Things

(I didn’t make any of these gifs, all credit goes to the original gif makers, as usual)

“I swear to god I can never tell what he’s saying. I think he just said ‘I’m joining up the dogs with the freckles on your cheeks, the old man says to me.’ Is that about right?”

“‘The dimples in your back at the bottom of your spine’??? that’s called an asshole, and it is not beautiful.”

“Where did all his hair go? The rest of them all stole his hair, didn’t they?”

[about the cup of tea line] “Is that line supposed to….like…rhyme?”

“Did they all forget how to shave??”

“Except for him, he can’t grow facial hair.”

Hubs burped really loudly and said “That’s my reaction to him.”

“He couldn’t afford full pants!?!?!? I thought they were millionaires!!!”

 “Meanwhile Zayn’s hair is trying to escape from his body. It’s running forward to get away.”

“That was it?? That’s how the video ended?? That was horrible!!! They’re all singing about the same girl, aren’t they. They’re gonna gang bang her. In ways I described previously.” (I am still not publicly posting that reaction, but you can ask me for it privately, if you desire.)

See all my Husband Reacts posts here.

NOW, FOR SCIENCE:

Imagine Sherlock (yes the TV show, duh). 

You do? Good. But here comes the tricky part. Imagine Sherlock where EVERYTHING is the same, except for one thing: Sherlock Holmes is a woman. 

This is not a Femlock post, mind you. (Not that I have anything against Femlock, but this is not about that). No, I just want you to really imagine this show where everything is the same except for this one detail (okay, it’s a pretty big detail, but anyway). 

Why? Because I’m curious. And because I’m tired of the fact that Johnlock and reading Sherlock as gay always have to be justified in 1 000 000 000 000 ways and still not be taken seriously. Now, I’m not gonna try to force you to ship Johnlock if you don’t. (And if you’re a Johnlocker, this should still be interesting.) Whoever you are that reads this, I just want you to be honest with yourself. You don’t have to dig super deep or analyze like crazy, but just think about it for a second, objectively, no matter what your ship is. 

So here we go:

How would you have reacted to the following parts of the series if Sherlock was a woman?

  1. The scene at Angelo’s
  2. The conversation between John and Irene (”Look at us both”)
  3. Irene’s attempts to get Sherlock’s attention
  4. John’s endless row of girlfriends that actually did come to an end because he always prioritized Sherlock
  5. Sherlock deciding to fight for her life after realizing that “John Watson is definitely in danger”
  6. Sherlock’s wedding speech
  7. Sherlock leaving John and Mary on the dance floor, then leaving the wedding early
  8. Falling back on drugs after the wedding
  9. EVERY SCENE WITH MORIARTY
  10. Sherlock using Molly’s deep affection for her to her advantage
  11. “Why don’t you two just elope” (in the mind of Sherlock herself)
  12. “John, there is something I should say, that I’ve meant to say always and then never have”
  13. THE HUG
  14. “Into battle”
  15. “… with your cheekbones and turning your collar up so you look cool”
  16. The whole frickin Lying Detective and “the man we both love”
  17. Sherlock surprising John with “not dead” and the reactions from them both
  18. “I was so alone and I owe you so much”
  19. John grieving for two (2) years and returning to Baker Street to “move on” from Sherlock right before proposing to his girlfriend
  20. THE POOL - Everything that happens there + “people might talk”
  21. John killing a man to save Sherlock after knowing her less than 24 hours

I’m really just wondering - HOW WOULD YOU READ THESE SCENES?

Tagging some people under the cut (if you’re interested, otherwise sorry to bother you!), feel free to add something cause I’ve really just written this up right before bed and I’ve probably forgot something important :)

when i saw this moment

i remembered scene from x-men:dofp
the first time when Charles see Erik after all of this shit that happened in the “First class” and fucked up Charles’s life

i think Oswald would do the same thing to Ed if he hadn’t been in a cage

(that i think that situation between these two is kinda similar i’m not gonna say but… at some points i find stories a lil bit similar, yeah.
except cherik is not really a canon but still)
+ i remembered cherik because Erik have done so many terrible things and Charles still believed that Erik has something good in him.( and if it isn’t love, i don’t know what it is). And i think same happens with nygmobblepot. They came through a lot of shit but they (obviously) still have feelings for each other.

(i’m sorry, maybe post is stupid and doesn’t make any sense but i wanted to talk about this moment in 3x18. also sorry for my bad english.)

i 100% appreciate dan's work and the effort he puts into his stuff but let's get real for a second. ISG is getting old and he's running out of ideas. that's just a fact, it's obvious. ok it was a funny video sure but reading a bunch of random emails and coming up with a joke (always self-deprecating and not very original, let me just say) isn't a very hard thing to do. There are youtubers out there who post every! single! day! and have interesting and entertaining content, unlike dan.

i agree that isg isn’t the most original content but you gotta understand that the reason he makes them is that there are tons of people who genuinely love those videos. it’s the same thing with the sims, a lot of us active phandom members might be sick of it but that’s still their most popular gaming series overall, and so of course they’re gonna continue making them. the internet support group is very well received among the majority of his viewers, particularly in the youtube comments + the fact that he gets thousands of emails. and, really, is this any less original than the neverending q&a videos other youtubers make?

isg def isn’t my favourite dan content, but i don’t think it’s right to say he’s out of ideas (you’ve seen his list, he clearly isn’t). he uploads other stuff as well, it’s all ok, we can survive some isg once in awhile

Hey, with the last chapter of the volume coming up, how do you think isayama is gonna wrap things up on Marley? I think there's still a lot of stuff to answer, but at the same time going back to Paradis is long overdue lol. What's your take? Love your blog!

Chapter 91 introduced us to a whole lot of new faces we’ve never seen before. 92 gave us two characters we’re familiar with and presented them in all their post timeskip glory. 93 gave us even more new characters, added more depth to the other new comers and heavily focused on our friends Reiner and Zeke from 92, all the while heavily teasing the Paradis cast: Eren was name dropped twice, we saw his and Armin’s titan twice, two shots of each Ackerman, even the default Sc made an appearance and Annie showed up again. Isa’s been increasingly teasing our main folks for the last three months and he knows the fans are thirsting for them by now. He’s even apologized for the fact that his chapters are taking longer, which I believe to be at least partially tied to the longevity of the absence of our main cast. Add the fact that the Paradis folks are of course huge money cows, and that next chapter marks the end of the volume, I think it’s very likely, almost necessary, to at least give us a few panels with the Paradis folks. It’s about time.

How will it go down, that’s a different question. I’ve seen lots of speculation about the rando-McNobody in the background of the Reiner and squad panel being a walldian, but I really hope it’s not a case of “we’ve already infiltrated all your ranks and are preparing to strike first”, mostly because it would require a TON of explanation and background to fill in.

Firstly, they’re not in proper Marleyan territory rn: the architecture and the state of the city and its bay suggests this was part of the battlefield, most likely territory part of or close to the mid east forces. How would an Eldian spy even manage to get there? And what purpose would it serve? Furthermore, at the end of the chapter, the warriors are returning towards Marleyan mainland via train–how on earth is the spy supposed to follow that? They’d need to literally have infiltrated the army, including identification, fake backgrounds and what not. All of that just sounds…ridiculous. Yes, RBA infiltrated the 104th but they had the advantage of an ongoing apocalypse for the walled world. Plus, Eldians are put under much more scrutiny in Marley since they’re all considered dangerous devils anyway, controlled and watched over from birth. How are you supposed to infiltrate that, especially in an outside world with far far greater technological advancement? How would walldian spies fit into all of this? It sounds ridiculous to me and it would require a ton of explanation to make sense at all, and I don’t want Isayama to spend that much time with all of that when we’re THIS close to the end anyway. And I mean, at this point it’s pretty certain we’ll move back to Paradis eventually, some form of invasion will happen one way or another, even if a walldian strikeforce attacks Marley first. We went through a ton of setup, even the island itself has become this thematic story element, and it makes no sense for the story to entirely switch to a different location when its all about Paradis anyway: there’s the resources Marley wants, the last free Eldians, the locations we’ve spent years with, and of course, the most important thing and Paradis’ biggest advantage: the walls. Abandoning all of that in favor of staying beyond the ocean seems ridiculous to me. Marley’s invasion is bound to happen, and I don’t want it to be slowed down by some pointless counterattack from the walldians. It doesn’t make sense in my book. 

As for what I think is gonna go down…idk. It’s not impossible that the volume ends with Reiner passing on his power, but I’d much rather have him confront the SC one more time. He’s still got that unsettled combat rivalry with Eren’s titan form–we’ve yet to see one truly be victorious over the other by themselves, and it’d be a shame to skip out on that. He still has two years, abut they need to move earlier than that due to Zeke’s closing term…gotta keep the very experienced Reiner around for that. Personally I’d like to see preparations for the invasion being underway next chapter, and some more character stuff with our Marley cast. 

One thing in particular I want to see more of is Zeke: but without anyone around; let him think about his agenda and let us see this please, Isayama. I’m not expecting his full masterplan, but at the very least, something. Most importantly I’d love him to think about Eren and whatever his role in his plan winds up being. That would imo be the perfect transition for Isayama to show us actual, 19yo Eren, back on Paradis, thinking about something probably not unrelated to whatever Zeke thinks of. Ya’ll know I’m convinced Zeke’s and Eren’s relationship will play a capital role in this final arc, so having an actual Jaeger kyoudai transition in this final chapter of the volume would be kind of awesome, esp with insight into what both of them have in their heads. idk. This is just my wishful thinking but having that kind of transition between Marley and Paradis would be very welcome for me at least, and I think it’d fit into the story quite nicely too. In any case this is all speculation, but basically, it’s my personally preferred outcome of 94^^

We faced some heavy bearding last month and it continues to be so. In real life we are deprived of J2 selfies and Gennnel and het pics (that pic of J/D where Jen looks sad af) shoved down our throats while on the show, less and less sam and dean broments with side character overload. Why is this happening?

wow jensen looks so still in this pic, danneel needs to drop the filters lol. what i love about jensen and danneel is that they look like the most perfect prom king and queen from all the american tv shows ever like that’s all i think about when i see them: ken and barbie, hollywood fakeness, america lol and the funniest thing is the huge elephant in the room of jensen being gay and ruining this perfect traditional christian family image, they would be so perfect in desperate housewives honestly but anyway

as far as the show is concerned, i think it was to give time to j2 for the babies’ births but i guess you can make a correlation between sam and dean’s relationship and j2 because last season they were a lot of good moments between them and 2015/2016 was the year where j2 were the most open about the time they spend together on social media and this season sam and dean are barely emotionnally connected just like jared and jensen’s social media show a terribly bland reflection of what they truly mean to each other

but all that was expected, all the het/family pics are NORMAL.

It is what it is.    when you’re bearding and you have new babies with your beard, that’s what happens: your sm becomes a het show (especially when one of the beards is starting her career and needs your fame and the other beard doesn’t want to get left behind and suddenly starts to post tons of het pics at the same time) and you stop showing everyone that you spend all your free time with your boyfriend since you’re supposed to be with your kids and wife

i don’t know how long this is gonna last but they’re gonna keep this rythm for a while 

why is this happening? well life sucks pal, and homophobia is a thing and it’s unfair and PR are feeling zealous i guess but there’s nothing we can do about it 

i’m personally not really affected by all that because im still so stuned by all the date nights j2 had last month and this amazing convention where j2 were so REAL and true and they didn’t talk about their wives and then jared telling us he spent easter night with jensen and the kids and i just didn’t think we would get that much j2 in those times of heavy bearding so im really optimistic because it could have been way worse

so really just hold on, it’s gonna pass and j2 will go back to their usual self and enjoy the cons, all the 2017 conventions were great and show how perfect j2 are together still after all this time

I met James like 5 years ago. He was like a dad, he used to be very supportive and protective. He never lost the chance to turn any conversation into a joke, he never failed to make me laugh. We liked to tease each other about our s/o and his reactions were the best. Every time I posted a drawing he made a post saying how much he liked my art and I liked to draw him his favorite characters every now and then, when he was feeling down or when i had the chance… Now I wish I could’ve drawn him more things.. When all the friends I met when I first joined tumblr moved to twitter and he decided to stay it didn’t feel that lonely anymore. It was great to see one of his popular posts appearing on my dash and once again, stealing a loud laugh. I know we weren’t the talkative friends but he was still someone one could trust, really one of a kind and I will never forget any moment with you, my friend. We’ll really miss you James, I will really miss you and it’s not gonna be the same without you around.

Meddling Rumors and Hidden Truths 

- A Sequel to “Act the Part”. 

A Lunyx fanfic. 

Set in my Kingsglaive AU where Nyx works as a bodyguard for Luna on a daily basis (Unless ordered to battle in this case). He also helps her sneak out of the palace to explore the city when she wants to (which I gotta mention more often.)

Summary: Nyx Ulric deals with the rumors about him and the truths that he is reluctant to admit.

Author’s Note: This was supposed to be a short drabble but I ended up writing 4,600+ words. Ah well… there might be another sequel, but I’m not promising.

Please read “Act the Part” first (if you haven’t) before you read this story. You can search that chapter on blog by it’s title ‘cause this website doesn’t seem to want my to add a link -_-

The van that the Kingsglaive rode shook slightly as it turned to a direction. Bodies shifted but mundane chatters hadn’t ceased in the background.

In his usual spot, Nyx leaned on the window side while he let the fatigue take its course. He watched the moving scenery as it brought some thoughts of the new and the usual. More specifically, he reminded himself to finish the unpacking of marked boxes in his new apartment and, later, to accompany a certain princess for the usual, discreet night out. Having these tasks swimming in his mind calmed him more than the dull travel itself, helping him return to the quiet part of a soldier’s life. Like any of the glaives, he needed it after the taxing battle.

The recently accomplished mission was as gruesome and tiring as the ones he had in the past. Monsters to kill. Towns to defend. Guts and grime to shake off from the armor. Same old, same old. What was left was the return to the crown city. And maybe some uninterrupted peace.

Maybe.

Libertus started snoring without restraint. Unfortunately, he was squeezed in between Nyx and Crowe, who were trapped in their seats and were forced to be the receiving end of the ugliness. The female glaive elbowed the sleeping Galahdian on the side, which made the garbled noise to stop and the bickering to begin.

“I’m sleepin’ here!” Libertus complained, still a bit groggy and still a bit too loud.

“And we’re dying here.” Crowe retorted with her famous scowl.

However, it didn’t faze the stout glaive next to her. “Well, Nyx doesn’t seem to be complaining.” Libertus lightly justified, “Ain’t that right, Nyx?”

Preoccupied, Nyx still watched from the window. He wasn’t really in the mood to choose sides in their squabble.

“Daydreaming again.” he heard his fellow Galahdian mutter.

“Probably daydreaming about that wife of his.”

The words made the hero of the Kingsglaive snap out of his calming stillness. His head moved suddenly for the first time and searched for the one who said it. He stopped when he spotted Pelna. The wisecracker of the glaives peaked above the headrest of his seat in front of Nyx, facing him with the sly I-know-something-they-don’t smirk.

“What?” Crowe blurted, beating anyone to it.

Pelna immediately supplied the information. “I heard he got married just recently. Probably the reason why he moved to a bigger apartment.”

Nyx was taken aback. The news was absurd and entirely untrue. A wild rumor that his friend might’ve randomly picked up from who knows where. He sat up to object.

“Wait. I’m not-.” Despite that, conclusions started to pour in before he could finish, like an unrelenting freight train.

“How could you not tell us, Nyx! You didn’t even introduced us to this girl!” Crowe snapped as she craned her neck to give Nyx another scowl.

Libertus followed right after with a bellow and an equally mean glower. “I’m your best friend, Nyx! You didn’t even invite me to the wedding!”

Once again Nyx was stunned. “Guys, you’re seriously believing this-!”

“Whoa! Ulric finally settled down!” Tredd interrupted from his seat next to Pelna. “And in secret too! Probably married someone ugly.” Another glaive behind Nyx added.

Nyx protested again. “Hold on for a sec-“

But his best friend wasn’t done. “You didn’t even give me a chance to throw you a bachelor party!”

“Wait. Is she pregnant? Is that why you married her so suddenly?” Crowe pried excitedly.

“Is there gonna be a baby shower?” another glaive asked.

Unbelievable. Just unbelievable. The hero wasn’t so sure what was happening. It was as if his fellow soldiers were consumed by it, like a pack of hyenas fixated on their prized meal. Once more, Nyx threw himself into the battlefield, but this time it proved more difficult than actually facing a horde of daemons.

“Listen to me! I am not-!”

“I’m gonna be an uncle?”

“Ulric with a wife and a kid. Now that’s something I gotta see.”

“To be honest, I didn’t peg you for a family man, Nyx.”

“No! Just stop for a minute-!”

“You still owe us that bachelor party.”

“Bachelor parties are held before weddings, you idiot!”

“Is there such a thing as a post wedding party?”

“Nyx, you gotta tell about the honeymoon. We need details!”

They all jabbered at the same time now. Half teasing and half serious. Every contagious idea spread like wildfire. Nyx could only clamour what he was trying to say helplessly.

“EVERYBODY QUIET!”

The glaives halted abruptly to obey the commanding voice that came from the front seat. One by one they settled down while the vehicle carried them through a dirt road.

Luche, the glaive who sat next to the driver, was holding a phone to his ear. They looked at him with anticipation and he looked at them like they were noisy school children.

“What is it this time, Luche?” Crowe whined.

“The Captain’s going to give our orders.” Luche replied seriously. He tapped the phone’s screen and hooked it up on a connector for the van’s interior speaker.

“Good to go, sir.” the second in command informed on the phone.

Immediately, the Captain’s familiar voice dominated over the silence.

Glaives, listen up!” the voice ordered. “New orders. First up is for Khara. Since Bellum can’t commit to monitor duty for a while because of his injuries, you will take his shift in addition to his current one…

Pelna cursed to himself hushly.

…Altius, you’re assigned to train the recruits this week. You start on Wednesday…

“Babysitting. Awesome.” Crowe muttered sarcastically.

… Ostium, you will be on guard duty at the West Wall…

“At least you didn’t get the snore fest.” Libertus grumbled.

…The rest are on standby and on their usual assignments.

After that, the glaives went back to their chattering selves and remained somewhat behaved. Crowe scolded Libertus about his belching snore. Pelna sat down quietly. A few restarted a conversation. And Nyx went back to watching the outside world. But then, the speaker cracked a sound.

And one more thing. Ulric, congratulations on the wedding.

Nyx placed a palm on his face and sighed.

The glaives could only do what they do best: make a ruckus about it again. 


Street lights started to grow brightly when Nyx and Luna entered the buzzing immigrant district. Even under the darkening skies, the place boomed in its famous vibrancy. Street food venders in their rickety carts swiftly made their specialties for the quick grub and cash. Lone performers held their little concerts as worn out containers invited donations. Travelling crowds of different colors and directions went on to complete the busy ambiance.

It was another night for the Princess Oracle to explore the city. As usual, she was protected by a civilian disguise while the glaive escort, who wore casual clothes as well, was there to trail behind. Or rather, to walk with her side by side. They were too accustomed by each other’s company that, whenever they sneak out into the evening, neither fell into the royal-glaive formalities. The only custom that stuck with them was him calling her “your highness” or “princess”.

Still, in these subdued escapades, she was mostly just a woman who wanted to see the world and he was only just a man who aided in her quests.

“Is there something bothering you?”

Nyx glanced at her as they strolled. The edges of her golden locks glowed in a different hue, passing a store with a bright neon signage. Her wide eyes looked at him with concern. He made a face to ask what she meant.

“You suddenly became quiet for a while.” she clarified.

“Oh… It’s nothing, your highness.” he assured. “I was just thinking about something funny that happened earlier.”

Luna smiled. “Do tell. For my entertainment at least.”

Nyx chuckled and placed his hands in his pockets. “The whole glaive thinks I’m married.”

The princess looked genuinely puzzled. “Oh? Where did they get that idea all of a sudden?”

“Pelna told everyone.” he sighed. “He heard it from a buddy whose mother is neighbors with a certain old lady.”

Having heard that, her eyes showed that she was getting the hint. “By any chance is she named-?”

“Mrs. Collins.” he completed.

The princess laughed in astonishment, reflecting the interesting situation that she had gotten him into. The glaive could still remember the incident in the convenience store like it was just yesterday. She had pretended to be his wife to help him escape an old woman’s insistence, which seemed harmless at the time. But now it caused him a great deal of annoyance that was brought by his comrades.

“I am so sorry, Nyx. I shouldn’t have pulled that act.” she apologized with a snicker.

“Don’t be. Nobody could’ve known that it would spread.” he reasoned lightly. He smirked for good measure.

“Well, I did cause you more trouble - you moving into a new apartment to avoid Mrs. Collins herself.” she retorted remorsefully.

The glaive shrugged to show how it was really not a big deal. “At least I got to leave that old dump for a slightly bigger dump.” he jested.

“And at least it was fun pretending to be your wife.” she conceded.

The comment almost made Nyx pause. He continued maintaining a relaxed stride while it reminded him how he felt during their act. It was the first time that he held her so close without the purpose of shielding her from danger and it was the first time that she planted a kiss on his cheek. The thought of the latter started to linger again, so he cleared his throat to keep himself from indulging.

“How is the apartment by the way?” she inquired.

The change of subject gave him relief. “It’s nice. Has more room for more stuff and it has a small dining area.” he answered simply.

They walked and chatted more about his new abode for a while before stopping at a food cart to buy fried dumplings on a stick. As they waited in the line, she asked something that made his heart jump.

“Can I see the apartment?”

Nyx tried to contain his surprise from her sudden fixation about his home by keeping his voice steady.

“You want… to see… my apartment?”

She nodded brightly. “I just got curious. I’ve never been to a place like it…” However, she must’ve sense his unease, so she pulled away with an apologetic smile. “… But if you’re not comfortable having me there, I understand.”

The glaive watched her for a moment. He could see that she was indeed curious to see it, as much as she wanted to explore the whole of Insomnia. He felt bad not showing the enthusiasm, no matter how awkward their situation might get. After all, it was just simply showing her what it looked like. What’s the worst that could happen?

“No. It’s alright. I can show you.”

Her eyes lit up. “Is it really alright with you?”

He shrugged. “I’m here to help you see what you want to see, your highness.”

“Are you really sure?”

“Well, let’s just hope you don’t see a huge rat when we get there.”


Luna tugged his arm as they climbed the stairs. Her steps became slower all of a sudden and Nyx couldn’t help but get worried, especially that he saw her wince. The long way was their only choice of reaching his apartment since the dingy elevator had been under maintenance - according to a hastily painted sign. Unfortunately, they still needed to cover two more floors.

“Maybe I should carry you.” he offered.

Luna waved it off. “It’s alright. I can still make it.”

“It’s going to make me feel better if I take you back to the palace later without blisters on your feet.”

The princess sighed. She looked down at her expensive boots and frowned. He had been right to guess it.

“Remind me to wear appropriate footwear next time we go out.” she suggested for her own good.

The glaive nodded and crouched slightly to help her. She put her arms around his neck as he lifted. He carried her with one arm to support the weight from her upper body and with the other to rest her legs. And suddenly they held each other in an interesting position.

“Taking your new bride to your home?” she teased for the hilarity of it.

Nyx laughed but then he shook his head to reject the invitation to act along with it.

“Don’t start, princess.” he protested.

However she continued to play. “Is that how you should talk to your wife?”

“Please, stop. I’ve had enough teasing for today.” he complained lightly. He hated the fact that she could mess with him that easily and, somehow, there’s nothing he could do to make it stop entirely.

The sound of her giggles echoed the empty stairway, but she ended with a small smile and said “Alright, I’ll keep it quiet for now.”

Then, he continued to climb and she kept her word. She made her body still and well rested while he carried her with each labored step. Eventually they made it to the floor where his apartment was supposed to be situated. Still having the princess in his arms, he walked a few more paces down the hall and reached the door to his home. He was about to gently bring her down when suddenly…

The door opened for them.

Nyx stiffened in confusion. Luna froze as well.

The woman that stood at the door wore a familiar bun on her dark hair. The maroon coat that wrapped her tightly was appropriate for long travels. The smile that broke out from her face revealed the lines that defined her physical age. The glaive hadn’t seen that smile in over a year.

“Mom?” he uttered.

Then finally, Luna brought herself down from his grip before his arms became too weak. However, the woman didn’t wait for them to come in for the excitable greeting.

“Nyx! You’re finally here! I’m so glad to see you!”

All of a sudden, both the glaive and the princess received a warming hug from the older woman. It made him even more confused. Why on earth was she hugging the princess too?

“This must be my daughter-in-law!” Nyx’s mother guessed with enthusiasm. She held the princess’ hands with motherly affection and looked at her with pride. The blonde was speechless with bafflement.

“Wait what?” Nyx interrupted.

He rushed in, leading Luna and his mother inside the apartment and, shortly, into his humble living room.  It was strange seeing the older woman. He had just moved in and he hadn’t informed her about the new address.

“Mom, what are you doing here? How did you get in? And how did you even find me?”

Mom’s brows creased. She looked displeased. Soon, the motherly nags started. 

“Is that how you should greet your own mother? And how many times do I have to tell you not to put the spare key under the mat? Anyone could’ve easily entered and steal everything!”

Nyx tried to interrupt calmly. “Mom, I-“

“And you have some explaining to do, young man! You got married without telling your own mother! It breaks my heart, Nyx! How could you! I only found out when Libertus called earlier when I was on my way!”

Ah. Libertus. That chubby idiot must’ve told her about the rumor and the address to his new apartment while she travelled. 

Gently butting in, Luna tried to help his situation. “Wait. Mrs. Ulric, I’m not-“

“And you, my darling, are so beautiful!” the Ulric matriarch gushed as she shifted her sights to Luna with a kinder disposition. “How could he hide you from everybody! Tell me the details!” And then she looked at them both. “How did you two meet? How did you fall in love?”

The princess started to explain again. “No, Mrs. Ulric, I-“

“Oh, my dear, call me ‘Mom’.” the mother corrected.

“Mom!” Nyx stressed. “She is NOT my wife and I am NOT married!”

It was the first time since they met this day that his mother actually stopped with open ears. It was her turn to get confused.

“What?… What do you mean?”

“There wasn’t a wedding.” he clarified.

Then she swiveled at the blonde. “Then who…?”

Before he could supply the answer, Nyx closed the door behind him and locked it to make sure there weren’t prying eyes or ears that may happen to pass by or somehow barge in. He went back to the women and glanced at Luna. The princess gave him a nod that assured him it was alright to tell.

Then he faced his mother with solemnity. “Promise me you don’t tell anyone about this.”

The woman’s brows rose slightly. “Nyx, what’s going on?”

“Just promise me.”

The mother sighed but she looked worried now. “Alright.”

Nyx paused for a bit. Luna only watched and waited.

“Mom, I want you to meet Princess Lunafreya Nox Fleuret from Tenebrae.”

And with her demured charisma, the princess oracle held out a friendly hand and said “I’m pleased to finally meet you, Mrs. Ulric.”

Nyx’s mom was wide eyed as she looked at Nyx and then at Luna. Her son waited and felt like she might never speak again.

“You mean… She’s…”

“Yes. The one and only Princess Oracle.” Nyx confirmed.

His mother paused again and looked at the blonde that stood next to her. 

“OH MY GOODNESS! Please forgive my manners!”

The older woman shook Luna’s hand briskly. Luna only smiled brightly and gave the mother a kind hug afterwards. It was then that the glaive allowed himself to smile as well.

“It’s quiet alright, Mrs. Ulric. You weren’t expecting me to come here anyway.” the princess assured.

“Oh, you’re highness, please call me Elara.” the mother humbly suggested.


Among the very few that the heroic glaive neglected to unpack, a box - hastily labeled as “Kitchen” – was emptied of all of its contents.

Nyx received a scolding about having only plastic plates and utensils but was promptly tasked to help prepare a quick and special dinner for himself, for his mother and for the welcomed princess. He hadn’t cooked a Galahdian feast in long time. He couldn’t even remember the last time that he cooked it with his mother.

After the bustle of the mother-son tandem in the kitchen, they laid out the dishes onto the small, round table that came with the apartment. They urged the princess to sit with them to eat. She gladly did so. It didn’t take much before Elara told elaborate stories about his son. And of course, the grown-up man had to cover his face with a palm every so often out of embarrassment.

“Mother!”

“What! I was just telling her how you cried because a girl kept calling you ‘Nick’. You were always so particular with names they call you when you were young.”

“I was six years old back then, your highness.” he clarified to Luna.

The princess chuckled before taking a bite from her well plated meal.

“I have to say, this dish is quite exquisite!” Luna praised.

Elara’s cheeks blushed. “I’m so glad you find it so, your highness.” she admitted. “And I’m also glad that my son’s cooking wasn’t so bothersome.”

Nyx raised a brow and Luna chuckled once more. “Well, at least your son has been excellent in his job as my bodyguard. He saved me countless times. I owe him a lot”

“Is that so?” the mother asked with an honored smile.

“Yes. Certainly the best of the Kingsglaive.” the princess declared.

Nyx smirked and shrugged. 

“She’s only telling the truth.” he boasted.

Elara looked at his son with pride that only a mother could express but it was quickly replaced with the worry that she had always reminded him.

“I hope you’re not pushing yourself too much.” she fretted. “I know how selfless you can be sometimes.”

Nyx gave her an assuring smile. “Don’t worry, Mom. I’m good at what I do and I have friends out there in the battlefield. They got my back.”

“Just make sure you come home safe and sound, alright?”

Her quaking voice moved him. He felt bad seeing his aging mother still worry about him, even after years of being away from home - away from Galahd.

The elder of the Ulric children had moved to Insomnia for duty, but at the same time, had left the doting mother alone in the small family house. Nevertheless, she had insisted that he should follow his calling and she’d manage on her own. Even in their phone calls, she continued to tell him that she was doing well. She had even declined when he had offered to have her move in with him. 

Still, whenever she visited him, her fears resurfaced in one way or another. He couldn’t blame her. After all, she had lost a child once before.

“I’ll make sure of it.” he promised.

Elara’s eyes still expressed the uncertainty. But not for long. 

“He will, Elara. He will always come back safely.” Luna agreed.

It made him glance at the blonde who sat beside him. The princess just gave him a simple smile.

In the cramped dinning area, the warm silence stretched for a bit before the mother cleared her throat and continued on with the her son’s shameful tales. The princess started laughing again and the glaive watched as the two ladies bond effortlessly.

It was only when Nyx remembered the time that their feast came to an end. Their night was over and the princess must return to the palace. The glaive escorted her through a cab ride. They sat side by side at the back seat. Comfortably close together, their shoulders almost touching. They rode in silence for a while until he uttered out of the blue.

“Thank you.”

In the dark, her eyes revealed to him her innate curiosity. They reflected the city lights that they pass by. She made a face to ask why.

“For making it easier for her.” he explained.

The princess gave the glaive the same smile that she wore during the dinner. He loved seeing it. He loved how he understood what she meant by it. However, she didn’t remain silent this time.

“It’s my pleasure.”


Nyx returned to the apartment with fatigue taking over again. He found his mother resting on the couch, watching a program on his small TV. He couldn’t help but notice that his apartment looked a little different from before he left it.

“You didn’t have to clean the place.” he said with an amused grin.

Elara turned to face him and formed a slight, impatient scowl. “You called that clean?”

“It was clean!” he argued .

“I saw a cockroach crawl by. Fortunately for you, the princess didn’t see that!”

Nyx sighed and didn’t bother to make a reply to that. Instead, he plopped down on the couch next to her.

“How was she?” the mother asked. She looked at him with anticipation.

“She’s fine. A little tired, but she’s safe and sound back in the palace.” Then he noticed her looking at him differently. “What’s with the face?”

Mom didn’t skip a beat. “Did you kiss her?”

It took a moment before he processed the audacity of his mother’s words.

“What?” he blurted.

“Weren’t you having a date with her before both of you came here?” she asked expectantly.

Unbelievable. Just Unbelievable. 

Nyx sighed frustratingly. It was happening all over again. First the glaives yapping about a nonexistent wife and now his own mother regarding the princess as his date. He shook his head before he uttered with emphasis.

“I was NOT having a date with her, Mom. I was helping her explore the city!”

Elara gave an unbelieving stare. She crossed her arms while she still sat in the couch. “Then why carry her like a bride when you came by the door?”

“Her feet hurt!” he retorted.

“She gushed about you during dinner.”

“She was just friendly! She’s always like that!”

“Then how come you stare at her like she meant the world to you?”

Nyx groaned. Why must people assume? Why do they have to pry like this?

“I don’t stare at her like that.” he declared, believing every word of it.

Almost believing every word of it

The mother must’ve noticed how weak his denial was because she held his hand like she needed to push him to admit something. A mother’s intuition couldn’t fail even if she rarely saw her grown-up son. She just knew and somehow, it made him anxious.

“You have your father’s eyes.” she told him suddenly.

It was rare for her to talk about his father. Usually, the very mention of him was the sign that he should listen. So he didn’t say a word and kept his ears open. Elara continued with reminiscent eyes.

“Before we had you, I would always catch him staring at me. He’d try to hide it but I’d always catch a glimpse of those blue eyes.”

She held his hand a little tighter.

“You had the same kind of look, Nyx.” she finished.

He didn’t know how to respond to that. They sat in silence while the TV flashed a program he didn’t care to know what. He looked at his mother and saw how much she had aged. The occasional strands of white hair and the lines on her face gave her that “old and wise” look.

“Trust me.” she said. “I know it wasn’t just a simple escort routine.”

He did trust her. How could he not? She was the only family he had left and the only one that could love him no matter what. She saw through him and it was useless to continue to deny it. 

Finally being reminded by that, he uttered the truth more effortlessly than he had to anyone.

“No, it wasn’t. And It wasn’t a date either.” he admitted with a steady voice.

She nodded, urging him to continue. 

“To be honest, I don’t know what it is exactly. All I know is that it’s a regular thing and, for sure, it goes against my orders…”

“And?”

He shrugged. “And it was what she wanted. Help her sneak out and roam around the city. I’m just giving her what she wanted. It was just a favor she asked me to do…”

“Until?” she urged again.

“… Until I started to want it too.”

He remembered the happiness that those nights brought him. They strolled around the streets. They joked about each other’s quirks. They ate the food that she hadn’t tasted before. She dragged him in her shenanigans. He protected her from the occasional goon. She protected him from awkward situations. He held her close. She kissed his cheek.

Elara gave him an encouraging smile and said “There’s nothing wrong with that.”

It didn’t make him feel any better. “Yes, there is. She’s a princess and I’m just a glaive.”

His mother shook her head. “That may be. But in those nights, she was just a woman who wanted to see the world and you were just a man who wanted to give it to her… And I’m sure she cares deeply for you, or else she wouldn’t have gone all this way to see where you lived.”

He chuckled at last part. In turn, she grinned.

“Anyway, I’m beat. We’ll talk about this tomorrow, my dear.” she announced. She stood up and gave him quick hug before planting a kiss on top of his head.

“I missed you, Mom.”

“I missed you too, sweetie.”

She walked away to the bedroom to sleep. He turned off the TV with the remote, remained on the couch and lied down. Staring at the cracked paint on the ceiling, he pondered about her words.

The princess was just a woman. 

The glaive was just a man. 

Was it really that simple?

He turned his sights to the window and saw the moon that shined brightly against the inky sky. It reminded him of how radiant the princess was tonight and how her smile warmed his heart.

Before he let himself doze off, he whispered.

“Good night… Luna.”

“Come on, [Name], you should be glad that I’ve taken such an interest in you.”

You had to keep from vomiting in your mouth. Out of all the people you could have seen outside of Midtown High and in the city, it just had to be Flash Thompson.

Flash was someone who was unnecessarily cocky 100% of the time. Just because he came from old money, he thought that anything and everything he wanted would simply be handed to him on a silver plate.

Which, unfortunately, included you.

You had no idea why Flash had such an interest in you. Was it because you were seen talking with Peter Parker (the boy he liked to antagonize) at every chance you got? You honestly wanted to get closer to Peter because you thought he was so cute. And thinking back on it now, you do vaguely remember defending Peter from Flash’s harsh words one time.

Ever since that day, Flash had never left you alone. He kept on spouting off nonsense, like how he fell for you at first sight and that he could treat you like a queen when you finally ‘came to your senses’ and returned his feelings.

Which made you simply scoff at his bold words. You would never date Flash, even if he was sort of cute and had all the money at his disposal.

“How many times do I have to reject you in order for you to understand?! I will –never– date you!” Your attempts at reasoning with him falls on deaf ears when Flash lets out an amused chuckle.

“I’ll stop when you finally open your eyes to see what you’re missing out on.” Good god this guy has the nerve to lean in closer to you with his lips nearly touching yours!!

Almost on instinct, you raised your right leg and give him a swift kick between his legs. Being caught off guard, Flash lands on the ground (practically groaning in pain) as you glared down at him, “Leave me alone! I only date genuine guys like Peter Parker who has more heart than you could ever have!”

“WHAT?! You have the nerve to mention THAT piece of trash??”

Seeing the fury in his eyes makes you gasp before quickly running away from him. You hear Flash yell out your name, but you didn’t dare turn back.

Taking advantage of the fact that Queens was a city that was always in a constant state of crowded disarray, you weave through the crowd of people. You hoped that you had lost Flash while running, and to make sure that he was tailing after you, you look behind you-

only to feel your whole body collide with someone else.

“Whoa, are you okay?” Whoever this person was, they were surprisingly strong when they managed to keep you upright in their arms. You look up to see familiar brown eyes gazing down at you with concern, “Oh thank God it’s you, Peter!”

“[Name]! Uh… Yeah, it’s me. W-Why were you running? You look out of breath.”

Believing that Peter could protect you from Flash, you quickly grab on to his arm and pull him with you, “Long story short: I’m being chased. Can you please come with me?”

Peter loses his confused expression when he hears that you were in danger, giving you a nod before grabbing on to your hand, “Let’s go.”

You start running again, this time with Peter by your side. You knew he was curious as to who you were running from, but couldn’t really tell him until you felt safe. When you felt as though you had put a good distance between you and Flash, you pull Peter into an empty alleyway to catch your breath. “Ugh, s-sorry about that. I just had to get away from Flash.”

“Flash was bothering you?” Instead of cowering at his name (like he used to do) Peter looked furious as his hands formed into tight fists, “What did he do to you? I’ll have a talk with him to make sure that he won’t bother you ever again.

You laugh at his bold words, gently punching the front of his chest (holy shit was he always this broad?? And when did he get such prominent biceps??) and blush slightly. Ignoring your thoughts pertaining to Peter’s lean (and muscular) physique, you clear your throat and reassure him, “I just turned him down when he asked me out for the millionth time this month. And when I told him that I would only date you, he got mad and started chasing me.”

Only when you were through speaking did you realize what you just fucking said to Peter, immediately covering your lips when Peter’s eyes widened at your unplanned confession.

After a few seconds of awkward silence, you saw Peter grinning at you, “You chose me over Flash?”

You nod, feeling your face turn hot with embarrassment, “Of course. You’re so sweet, Peter, I like you a lot.”

His smile widens at your words, and you feel the back of his hand gently caress at your cheek. “I like you, too. Ever since you defended me in front of Flash.” His touch was sweet (and nothing like Flash’s) but you were anxious now. You really wanted to be Peter’s girlfriend…!!

“Will you go out with me?”

“Go out with me.”

You and Peter blurt out at the same time, causing the both of you to laugh in response.

“Yes.”

“Yes.”

Peter’s smile was so pure and filled with happiness that you felt your heart melt, feeling his arms come around your form when he places a kiss against your forehead, “Jinx, you owe me a date tomorrow. And you can’t say no.”

You lean closer to him and gently kiss at his jaw, “Stop being such a nerd. As if I would ever say no to the boy of my dreams.”
