imadise asked: have you ever read the yugioh r manga? i love this scene where yami approaches kaiba and asks him if he was fine, kaiba specially seemed softer when dealing with yami before he’d reject his concern but in this manga he joked about it instead allowing it,
My reply: This is my favorite frame in the entire Yu-Gi-Oh! R manga. I love the way their often edged banter has turned playful here. Kaiba obviously still has trouble believing that anyone would be worried about him or particularly care if he got hurt. I think that would be one of the last things to change, simply because Kaiba has so little experience being cared for or cared about that genuine concern would be the last thing he’s expect anyone to feel for him.
But here, Kaiba’s doing something different. Instead of being angry or defensively closing down or needing to push back after being discovered in what he probably sees as a position of weakness, he’s able to deal with his discomfort by making a joke. In his own Kaibaesque way, he’s showing a great deal of trust in Yami. Kaiba finally understands that Yami can care about his welfare without that meaning that Yami thinks he’s weak or is looking for a vulnerability to exploit.
And I loved it when, after Kaiba has just brushed off being thrown off a building and poisoned as if it was no big deal, Yami just sighs and says, “Kaiba…” My not-so-inner-Prideshipper was going SQUEEEEEEEEE!
I read Yu-Gi-Oh! R while I was writing “Giving Up the Ghosts” by the way, and it really helped me stay aware of the different ways Kaiba might react to a show of concern.
hey !! what do u think abt juzo x kyouske , or juzosuke ?
I think it’s very sweet!! juzo is very loyal to kyousuke!! but even so, it’s a very angst-ridden ship (especially in the current dr3 timeline)… I really just want to see them happy tbh. personally, I ot3 it with chisa to balance the angst, though in canon, that … kinda goes the opposite way, huh? ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ but I do definitely appreciate juzosuke, and I hope that amidst all this madness, people do remember that they’re just doing their best to be true to what they believe in.
omg okay, one of my favorite anime ever was kimi to boku. it’s a really funny high school slice of life that centers around the relationship between four guys who have been friends their whole life and an overbearing, hyperactive new kid in town. but the humor isn’t like… ‘jump out at you’ funny. it’s really lowkey and it’s more humorous in the stories and character interactions than it is from gags or outrageous situations.
and the art style is so soft and pretty, I just really like it and also the sassy low-energy twins who just don’t care about anything except each other
also the sassy low-energy twins who just don’t care about anything except each other
and the megane who has to deal with all of them
but despite how great it is, I don’t think anyone has heard of it which is a SHAME BECAUSE IT’S SO AMAZING
So I'm thinking about cutting my hair short like a pixie cut but I have long hair now and I'm kinda anxious about it. I really wanna do it but I'm kinda nervous about how it'll turn out what do you think?
Do it!!! That stuff about how short hair only looks good with certain face shapes is a myth! If you want short hair go for it, its fun and comfy and personally made me feel much more confident with myself! Just make sure you have plenty of references and to be very specific about what you want with your hairdresser. IF U DO IT SEND PICS & I HOPE YOU LOVE IT
Adane and Josmet Lavellan. They’re both in their middle fifties in the Inquisition timeline, they haven’t seen their youngest son in about six years and unless we consider the version in which @numin-lavellan’s Numin is Fael’s cousin, they die in the attack on Wycome and they never meet again.
Adane is the apothecary/non-mage healer of the clan, and Josmet is the halla keeper (and the chillest person to ever chill).
Is the nameless Avvar lady still a thing? I'd love to hear more about her!
HOO BABY SHE IS CERTAINLY STILL A THING, though no longer so nameless. I’ll random number generator a few questions so this post doesn’t get too hefty.
1. Full name
2. Best friend
Fellow Inquisition recruit Pick, an ornery elf from the Marches. He’s very snappy and blunt but her consitution is such that she can handle it, and she appreciates his snide commentary, given it’s almost always what she’s thinking but can’t be bothered to say.
17. Worst romantic experience: A dude tried to kidnap her, as is the Avvar marriage custom, and she basically had to knock him the fuck out while simultaneously explaining that since he was lacking A Boobs, it was kind of a moot undertaking. It caused a lot of aggro in her clan, so she just ended up peacing out to avoid the hassle.
18. Biggest insecurity: She’s unnaturally chill and pretty damn comfortable with herself in general, so I wouldn’t say she’s insecure about anything in particular. I guess when she meets Hasta she starts becoming aware of how tall and buff she is, and worries she might squash small cute elf gf/looks ridiculous to such a tiny beautiful lady.
