One Pieceワンピース [Yonkō Saga / Whole Cake Island Arc] : “Minister of Juice” Commander Charlotte Smoothie vs Nico “Devil Child” Robin
[Commander Smoothie]"Quickly! We must get to the East Gate before--who are you?!"[Nico Robin]"Mil des Arbres."
Whole Cake Island is fun but I’ll admit it didn’t live up to the hype! (except the amazing commanders kek) I miss having the Strawhats together! Need me some Robin/Zoro/Usopp/Franky haha Also I’m kind of sad Oda didn’t play more on the mafia concept he had going, was expecting some slick Wiseguy lines. And I’m still waiting for Sir Cracker to return, c’mon 800m! Get back in the fight boi! Anyways, where the Smoothie fights at tho? Dear Oda, we still waitin’. kthxbai.
please, tell me a little more of your feelings on cersei burning the tower of the hand (if this is already in your tags, i am so sorry: mobile gives me the useless "there is nothing here")
Are you. Sure you want my feelings on this. Because I have. A lot.
Ok, so, one of the things that I love about ASOIAF is that it’s a story about stories.1 The Frog Prince, the Evil Queen, the Beast, the Huntsman, the Wicked Stepmother, Cinderella, Snow White, Red Riding Hood, the Witch – they’re all here. GRRM takes these timeless stories and twists them and turns them, telling them from the POV of the villain and other distortions. We glimpse their dim reflections over and over in GRRM’s dark funhouse mirrors, in Sansa and Arya and Lysa and Quentyn and Sandor and Tyrion and so many others.2 But obviously the character I want to talk about here is Cersei.
Cersei’s story is shaped and I would even say weighed down by fairy tales and famous literary figures. She is the Evil Queen, she is one of GRRM’s Wicked Stepmothers, she is Guinevere and Lady Macbeth and Clytemnestra.
But I think one of the most interesting fairy tales Cersei embodies is Rapunzel, the Maiden in the Tower. Rapunzel, “the girl with the impossibly long golden hair” “is a story about sexual desire and obsession
and cruelty. […] ‘Rapunzel’ is
largely a story about feminine power.” And Cersei’s story is her navigation of power in a world that actively denies her power, and it all ties into the Tower of the Hand.
