thanks for your opinions though guys!

Analysis + Semi-Theory: Zen's relationships with other people (including the RFA)

Yo, so this has been on my mind for a while and I just had to share my thoughts with you, because you made a post before about Rika that had some similar points and I wanted to add on to that.

You know how Rika made had a “connection” with each RFA member (aside from Jaehee) that made them agree to join the RFA and caused them to be so torn up about her “death” and just generally really affected by her in every way?

Logically speaking, Zen should have been just as impacted by her as Yoosung, Jumin, and Saeyoung and really emotionally distraught and traumatized by her “death” as a result. She sought him out, she was his earliest fan when no one else was, she attempted to made him successful and give him a “family” with the RFA.

But he always kind of avoided her. He sidestepped and rejected her help and friendship most of the time. He even declined to join the RFA at first, as I recall someone saying in one of the chat rooms. He only joined once V saved his life. Even when the game starts and also throughout the game, Zen always keeps the rest of the RFA at an arms distance, save for V, who he allowed to get up to his elbow, so to speak, because he saved Zen’s life and gained some of his trust. He doesn’t seem to act like his true self at all around most of the RFA. No one really knew anything about his past until MC shows up.

It’s just really interesting and weird to me. People always brush Zen off as being “less important” than the other RFA members, and that just makes me roll my eyes. Honestly, him deliberately keeping himself somewhat disconnected from Rika made me like him more. Because while some people really liked the bigger overarching plot, it wasn’t what I signed up for when I decided to play an otome game. (I prefer the universe theories about the game itself and Zen knowing he’s in a game and Seven and V and the wizards and etc.) I wanted to learn and fall in love with the individual characters themselves and not groan and roll my eyes every time the convoluted plot got in the way and took up time and then boom you and the character you’re pursuing magically decide to share deep feelings for each other with little to no buildup or progression of said feelings. At least that’s how it is during the excessively plot-smothered Deep Routes, which just felt like a hot mess tbh.

I got off on a slight tangent there. But I always think of Zen as someone who was able to see through Rika’s bullshit at least somewhat and didn’t become so overly attached and emotionally invested in her. (That’s one reason why the secret ends felt so OOC to me. Zen would have never just settled for being kept in the dark by Jumin, Seven, and Jaehee, and while he’s impulsive, he’s too detached from Rika to want to send her away. Although that might be the “white knight” in him who always feels like he has to speak out and protect the oppressed. Idk.) Zen was always the one who, while emotional and hotheaded, actually reacted like a sane person should in some of the extreme situations - the bomb, Jumin keeping MC in his apartment, V keeping secrets, forcing a stranger to jump into a dead girl’s job without thinking of how she feels, etc. The rest of the RFA is so blinded by Rika that they ignore logic most of the time and do things that don’t make sense because “it’s what Rika would have wanted”. They’re so caught up in this dead girl’s charity organization that has itself basically become super shady and conspiratorial, ignoring a lot of things that are so obviously sketchy and borderline illegal. And yes, I’m including Jumin, Mr. “I’m so logical”, who threatens the MC if she doesn’t agree to join the RFA and also declares she’s useless and obsolete if she doesn’t fulfill Rika’s duties. Like, jeez, mob boss much? He basically is one in every way except for official title.

So back to my main point. I think people tend to overlook how emotionally isolated Zen is from the rest of the RFA, something that he probably did deliberately. He doesn’t really like anyone in the RFA, except for V, and he mentions that a lot. He never believes that any concern or help that the RFA gives him is genuine. He doesn’t believe Jaehee is actually his fan, he doesn’t think Seven was actually trying to help him out (he thinks Seven was just being goofy and his weird trolling self), and the whole debacle with Jumin which everyone knows about so I’m not gonna go into (and tbh I still question Jumin’s sincerity and motive other than personal and financial gain bc Zen would owe him, so I don’t blame Zen for thinking the same way). He doesn’t believe anyone could actually care about him. He only knocks down some of his walls and lets V in a little bit because V fucking saved his life. But other than that, Zen has isolated himself so much emotionally that he hasn’t formed real relationships with any of the RFA members except V, nor does he really trust them, like them, or consider them friends. He doesn’t open up to them, and he keeps on the same mask that he shows to everyone else. He can’t afford to let anyone in, because they’ll just reject and betray him like his family.

Think about it too - Zen doesn’t really have any friends outside of the RFA either, like at all, save for a few people from his biker gang days, who I doubt he was his complete and true self around either. He’s super independent and relies only on himself, because that’s the only person he has. But he’s so desperate for affection and validation, which is why he seems desperate for a girlfriend yet simultaneously rejects so many people who are interested in him under the guise of focusing on work. When in reality, and he’s said this and there’s proof from VN flashbacks and in game events, that no one has actually treated Zen like a real person, or tried to understand him enough to warrant him opening up to them, except for V and the MC. That’s why he falls for the MC so fast, because she treats him unlike anyone else has before, like a person, and actually cares about what he wants. (Remember, V lies and keeps a lot of things from Zen, but Zen’s less torn up about it because while he trusts V more than the rest of the RFA, he hadn’t completely opened up to him, so he saves himself from some amount of emotional hurt.) The RFA may mean well, but they ultimately grossly misunderstand Zen, try to force what they think he should do on him, and treat him either like he’s an object on a pedestal or just too dumb to fully grasp or contribute meaningfully to a situation.

Basically, people don’t give Zen enough credit, and they brush him off as a background character with a shallow personality. There’s so many obvious things Cheritz has given us to showcase more of Zen’s character and personality, but the fans either make fun of him for it or call him annoying because of it. He’s super intuitive and guarded and I can definitely understand why he never completely bonded with the RFA. I love them, but quite frankly, they consistently fail to treat Zen like a person and don’t care about what he ultimately wants, but rather what they want from him. He protects himself from getting hurt by never getting completely emotionally invested in these people and reminding himself that they’ll probably all let him down someday. Which they do. No one actually sees Hyun Ryu, instead of ZEN, save for V and the MC.


This is really good analysis and oh my goodness way more than I could ever do. I never really thought about it this way.

While I mostly agree, I think some points should be open to discussion.

I personally feel like the RFA members treated him like a real friend, family, but the connection wasn’t there because of Zen. They were open to him, but he wasn’t open to them. That contributed to all the misunderstandings they had, so in that sense I don’t feel like I could ever blame them for how they treated him at times.

I also don’t recall Jumin ever threatening MC or saying those things to her, but maybe that’s just my bad memory. There’s many more I can say about that, but I think those who know his character better can explain it more substantially than me. I wouldn’t want to spout inaccurate information about him.

As for the fact that we don’t give Zen enough credit, I must agree. Although, since the April Fools DLC, more and more people have grown fond of him. I’ve been receiving messages from people saying how they’ve grown to appreciate Zen more after they realised this and that from my theories. So it’s definitely getting better, I’d say. I think overall, it’s really up to people’s types. Even before I had realised all this, I already liked Zen because I liked how romantic and caring he was. Others like Yoosung because of how cute and innocent he is. It’s the same for the other characters. And people see Zen as annoying because well, letms admit it he can be at times!

As I have said previously, all of the characters are complex. I chose to closely analyse Zen, and so have you, and that’s why we really love him. On the surface, he seems like just a romantic, narcissistic guy. I can’t blame anyone for not liking him. Same goes for the other characters. If I analysed their character more, I’d probably end up falling for them too, and that’s what others did, and that’s why they like who they like.

Thank you so much for submitting this. You wrote so much and you had a lot of valid points. Though this is as deep as I can go with my opinions because I’m currently rushing through a lot of work, I hope that you guys can also give your two cents on this. Reblog/Reply! Let’s start a discussion :D

Summary: As a high-end fashion designer you’re living an extensively comfortable life. When your relationship of six years ends, you’re not too happy to see your newly-ex on the arm of another woman directly after; which is part of the reason you don’t mind running in to two men, who seem to have some exciting plans with you. As a woman who always gets what she wants, you immediately recognise men who are used to that exact same thing, and you’re more than happy to be the one to put them in their place.

Part 1

*****

“For once in your life, shut up!” the guard who was watching her snarled furiously. She shut her mouth and blinked her eyes innocently. “Stop whining!”

“Oh, you think this is whining? No, I am just complaining about this terrible cell, you should really consider brightening up the place, maybe add some flowers here and there. But of course, I could start whining if you’d like!” she smirked and made her voice sound childish and high pitched. “Now this is whining!”

“Enough!” a strong voice boomed, echoing off the walls in the dark. The voice belonged to none other than the president of MACUSA herself, strutting in with an entourage of extra guards behind her. The girl in the cell rolled her eyes, talk about making a grand entrance.

“I will not do with this childish behaviour.” the president said sternly, eyes narrowing into slits.

“Well, I would stop if you let my dad and I leave in peace,” she replied with a smile, playfully tapping the glass of her cell. She was fully enveloped inside of a cube of strong, enchanted glass, with only a few spider webs to keep her company. The president and her guards were standing several feet away as if she could break through the glass and attack at any moment. Unfortunately, she couldn’t.

“(Y/N), you are here for a reason-”

“Ah, so we are now on first name basis, I see! Oh, I’m sorry. Please continue Seraphina.”

“We believe that you and your father may be a threat to us all. You could risk exposing the Wizarding World!” the president glares at the teenage girl and continued as if she hadn’t interrupted her at all.

“And what’s locking me up going to do? Look, Seraphina-”

“You will address me as Madam President.”

“Seraphina, you’ve captured the wrong people! Newt, Tina, and even Jacob the No-Maj are no threat to anyone! If anything that Mr. Graves character seems suspicious, he gives me the heebie-jeebies.” she crossed her arms over her chest and waited for the president’s reply. She wanted them to leave her, and soon. She could feel herself losing brain cells.

“There are dangerous things in that case! If anything, we are protecting you and everyone else from harm.”

“That is my home you’re talking about! Name one dangerous thing, in that case, go ahead I bet you can’t!”

Piquery takes a deep breath, trying her hardest not to completely lose her cool. This wolf girl really knew how to talk.

“There are beasts in that case, they are monsters!”

“Have you looked in a mirror recently? You’re the monster! Separating a girl from her family and home and then locking her up? Only a monster would do that. And you know what’s funny? I bet you don’t even know the names of any of the amazing creatures in that case because you - like everyone else- are just afraid of the unknown.”

At this point, Seraphina Piquery was fuming and she stomped her feet in rage. Her beautiful golden headpiece glimmered as she shook her head.

“You’re unbelievable!”

“So I’ve been told. Now please leave me be, I don’t want to see you again unless you’re coming to tell me that you’re setting me free.” with that, she faced the opposite direction of all the wizards on the other side of the glass and stubbornly sat down.
She heard footsteps receding and smiled with triumph.

“That must have pissed the president, she won’t be coming that anytime soon.” she hummed softly, pulling out a wand from her pocket. She had nicked it from a guard earlier when they were locking her up.

“Fenestra.” she murmured, pointing the wand at the glass. It dissolved instantly as a trail of sparkles erupted from the top of her wand. “I guess I really did learn a thing or two from the Niffler.”

She ran out of the room at an inhumanly fast pace, petrifying anyone who she met along the way. Her main priority now was to find Newt.

*****

Newt’s hands tug his messy curls as he huddled into the tight, damp corner of the barred cell. It wasn’t for comfort, he just wanted to disappear. Besides, he wouldn’t feel comfort until he had (Y/N) by his side again.

Jacob whimpered as he tried to process everything Newt and Tina had said about the Obscurial, feeling both perplexed and terrified. The Obscurial was not Newt’s major priority at the moment, he pushed the thought of it to the back of his mind. He needed to get out of the cell.

“I’m so sorry about your creatures, Mr. Scamander. I truly am.” Tina whispers helplessly, tears welling up in her soft, sad eyes. “I’m sorry about (Y/N) as well…”

He just nodded and didn’t say a word. Tears blurred his vision as he thought of all the terrible things that could be happening to her and his creatures right now.

“I want my daughter back…” he murmured to no one in particular, rocking back and forth in the cold corner.

*****5 Years Ago*****

“Come on (Y/N)! Eat your vegetables, they’re not going to kill you!” Newt huffed, prodding a piece of broccoli at the young girl’s closed mouth, trying to pry it open. No use. “Stop acting like a three-year-old!”

“I am not three, I’m ten!” the girl replied, crossing her arms and turning her head so that the vegetable was nowhere near her mouth. Newt dropped the fork and his hands flew up in the air.

“Then act your age and eat your broccoli!”

“The wolves never ate plants so neither do I! Shouldn’t you know this? You’re a Magizoologist for goodness sake!”

“Yes, but now that you’re living in a world of humans you should be getting the proper nutrients to help you stay healthy. So please stop being picky and eat!”

By now, all the heads in the restaurant had turned towards their table, eyeing the pair curiously. The other wizards simply shrugged and continued with their meals. Cups, plates, and cutlery floated around, placing themselves down wherever they seemed needed.

“Please?” Newt begged, lowering his voice so that he was no longer on the edge of shouting. (Y/N) reluctantly picked up her fork and stabbed the smallest piece of broccoli on her plate. Hard. Newt flinched slightly.
She slowly raised the fork and put the broccoli into her mouth. As soon as it hit her tongue her face scrunched up and she started to make over exaggerated gagging noises, her hands wrapped around her throat.

Newt rolled his eyes and smiled at her behaviour.
She coughed a few times before finally swallowing with difficulty. She took a huge gulp of water from her cup as Newt watched on, an amused smile on his face.

“I won. It wasn’t so bad, now was it?”

To prove her point, she coughed a few more times before answering. “Do you think they have raw rabbit on the menu?”

“No (Y/N), not at this restaurant they don’t.”

She rolled her eyes and smiled. Newt picked up his glass of water and raised it to his lips.

“You humans are missing out on the good stuff. Can’t I just go hunting in that open field behind the restaurant? I saw few bunnies hopping around…”

“No!” Newt exclaimed, almost spitting out his water. She looks at him with large pleading eyes and he sighs. “Well, not here where everyone can see you! We don’t want to risk anything. If you really want to you can do it later.”

She squeals happily, clapping her hands. “Yay! Thank you!”

A waiter waltzes towards their table and whips out his notepad.

“Finished with ze appetizers, I see! The usual main course Mr. Scamander?” he asks with a painfully fake French accent. (Y/N) couldn’t help but snicker.

The waiter turns his head and his eyes widen as he takes notice of her.

“What do we have here? Is zis your daughter, Mr. Scamander?”

Newt chokes and spits out his water again and splutters, “No?! That would be weird?…”

“It would be weirder if she wasn’t your daughter.” the waiter playfully raises an eyebrow at the two of them and winks. The girl giggled and pouts, playfully sending Newt a glare. The freckled man seemed to be contemplating life.

The waiter chuckles, “I’ll let you two settle zis out. Your meals will arrive shortly!”
With that, he skips away leaving the two of them in awkward silence.

“Come on dad,” she emphasizes the word and Newt jumps slightly, almost knocking over his glass of water. (Y/N) gently shoves the glass away from him to prevent any more spillage. “We have been together for almost six months now and I’ve really grown to like you.”

He stays silent, playing with his cutlery so she continues. It was a rare moment to see her like this, emitting all of her feelings that she kept bottled up. He looked at her through his curls, eager yet afraid of what she was going to say.

“You’ve raised me and taught me so many things…honestly these past six months were probably the best months of my life. You always made sure that I felt comfortable, helped me back on to my feet whenever I fell, taught me right from wrong… You took me under your wing and raised me as your own in when I felt the most unwanted in my life and well…thank you, dad.”

There it was again, that word. That three letter word that held so much meaning to both of them.

“Dad? Please say someth-”

“Don’t call me dad.”

Her mouth snaps shut and she’s at the brim, blinking away a river tears that were threatening to fall.

“I’m so sorry,” she whispers. “I’m sorry you don’t think the same way. I’m sorry for just barging into your life, you must hate me you’re just too nice of a person to admit it. I was stupid for thinking that I could possibly-”

“I refuse to let you call me your father…unless I get to call you my daughter,” he says with a soft smile, wiping away her tears with an already soggy napkin. “Sorry that was a bit late, I am just not very good with words and-”

He didn’t have time to finish his apology for the girl leaped out of her chair and embraced him in a hug, knocking them, and Newt’s chair, down to the floor with a loud thud. Heads turned towards them again but this time, Newt didn’t care.

“I love you dad.” she murmured, snuggling deeper into his welcoming arms. He stroked her hair gently.

“I love you too, (Y/N).”

They stayed like that for a while, lying down on the restaurant floor, simply enjoying the embrace and moment. Newt knew that they would have to get back up soon but he didn’t move, he wanted this perfect moment to last forever.
Right then and there he vowed again to protect the girl in his arms. He would protect and care for his daughter with his life.

*****

Newt didn’t even fight as the executioners took him and Tina through the dark hallways, dodging pillars left and right.

They took them into a white room filled with a bubbling black liquid and Newt knew that this was potentially his end. But maybe not. Pickett was climbing down his arms and trying to unlock his chains but if he was unable to pick the locks in time…

“Please,” he begged to the closest executioner. “Let me see my daughter one last time. Please!”

The executioner simply ignored him and he could only watch helplessly as Tina’s memories were taken from her. She mounted the small chair in the middle of the pooling black liquid and she was slowly sinking deeper into it, almost enveloping her completely.

“It’s your turn.” the executioner murmured to him making him jump, he didn’t see her approach, her white attire blended in completely with the room.

Newt shook his head furiously as he tried to stall Pickett some extra time. The executioner’s wand was merely inches away from his temple when the door of the room burst open, the hinges swinging madly.

“Get that wand away from my dad’s beautiful little head right now!” (Y/N) shouted, pointing a wand at the executioner and baring her teeth at the other, who had just taken notice of their new visitor.

Newt was more than slightly taken back by her sudden appearance - and the fact that she just called his head small and beautiful - but he was thrilled that she was alright and almost jumped and squealed for joy. Almost.

He heard a loud blast and looked over to see on of the executioners knocked unconscious on the floor. The wand that was gripped firmly in (Y/N)’s hand was still pointing at her as if she was afraid that she would get back up.

The remaining executioner had her wand pointing at (Y/N), completely neglecting Newt. (Y/N)’s dramatic entrance had given Pickett just the right amount of time to set Newt free. He slipped the Bowtruckle back into his front pocket and swung both his arms at the executioner, hitting her square in the face. She fell to the ground with a loud thud.

“Stay away from my daughter’s pretty little head.” he snarled at the clearly unconscious woman. He heard giggling and his face lit up as he saw (Y/N).

“Pretty little head, huh?” she smiles, still giggling uncontrollably despite the intense situation they were in.

“You started it.” he replied with a smile, running over to give her a hug. She hugged him tightly in return, burying her face into his coat, the familiar scent comforting her.

“I thought that you were gone, that I would never see you again.” she whispered, sobbing slightly. Newt hushed her and looked her in the eyes.

“I thought I lost you forever. But hey, hey it’s alright now. We are together and everything will be alright. I love you (Y/N) and I could never forgive myself if something had happened to you. I promise we will get out of here, together.”

They stayed in each other’s arms, afraid of what might happen if they let go.

“Mr. Scamander!” Tina shrieked.

“Just a second Tina! I’m having a deeply emotional moment with my daughter!”

“Newt!” Tina screamed again, still hovering over the black liquid of death.

“Oh, yes right! Sorry!”

*****

Dear Seraphina,

HA! WE ESCAPED? How’s the taste of defeat? Of course, I wouldn’t know because I’m not on the losing side your side.

I must apologize for the extensive number of your crew who have been paralyzed, I might have overused the Full Body-Bind Curse…but in my defense I was simply protecting myself. There was no way I was being put in that bloody cage again.

I hope you’ve learned your lesson, from now on, please refrain from imprisoning my family, for now, you know what can and will happen if you ever try to deal with us again. With that in mind, I would like to suggest that you amp up your security, just so that real prisoners don’t escape.

Don’t mess with me again, 

(Y/N) Scamander

P.S. I’m keeping this wand.

sugar-squared  asked:

I think that's a good idea! For fanart, you can post them on Comyet and sometimes Myebi if you feel like it. As for OC asks, that could also go to Comyet, unless you think that it's very important to the character, which you can then reblog to Myebi. Hope this helps!

Yes, I should do it like that. But maybe that loses a bit it’s “clean” side if I reblog things here and there. I don’t want myebi to be a blog without interaction, but I don’t want it to be messy either :/ Considering the amount of asks I receive that are about Ink compared to the ones about my characters, I definitely know that Comyet is more appropriate for Ink asks, but for my own characters… Aaah I’ll have to see. Thanks for your opinion though, I’m glad you guys are helping me to figure this out! It means a lot!!

anonymous asked:

Love your bnha fics. Thank you for writing them. :) Just out of curiosity: could you see either Katsuki or Izuku with other characters in a ship? I Kinda like the idea that Todoroki crushes a bit on Deku, bit I also like that mindwipe guy. Shinshou, I Think he is called. My otp is Katsudeku though, but I Can see the potential.

First off, thank you for reading! Second, thank you for asking such an intriguing question, since I have a feeling this isn’t the most popular opinion but whatever.

Without going into yet another crazy full-blown rant, I personally do not ship outside of the one I’ve chosen. When I choose that one particular couple that I like, I cannot see them with anyone else. 

Granted, this is only from my perspective and it does not mean that I do not see the logical basis that makes other ships prevalent, enjoyable, and interesting for the people who ship them. 

In fact, in Boku No Hero Academia, I see plenty of reason why there are so many ships. I respect them all equally (unless the ship concerns Mineta because fuck that character) but I personally cannot see myself choosing to ship outside of what I’ve chosen.

As someone who loves KatsuDeku, I can safely say that, by comparison, they have some of the least amount of traditional canonical elements that promote their ship. Shipping them requires… well, the reasons I posted about before. I guess I’m more drawn to ships that explore how damn difficult and slow-burning relationships between characters like this can be. 

Anyway.

There are two other ships in particular that concern Katsuki and Izuku that have been given plenty of popularity, and for good (even great) reason. 

It’s part of why I respect them as ships, but can’t personally do it myself because I’ve chosen my favorite and it’s just never going to sway. 

I’m talking, of course, about KiriBaku (Eijirou Kirishima / Katsuki Bakugou) and TodoDeku (Shouto Todoroki / Izuku Midoriya). 

These are very popular ships who, from what I can tell, are mostly used in fanfiction as balancing acts to each other. It’s a way of “solving the shipping war” without, necessarily, focusing on the OT3 aspect.

Even though I don’t ship these couples because of my own personal preference, I completely understand why they exist and respect the reasoning behind them. 

In all honesty, TodoDeku and KiriBaku, in comparison to KatsuDeku especially, have a more solid basis of being shipped when focusing on the canonical aspects that bring these particular characters together.

But this is part of why I really don’t want to ship them. Aside from the obvious reasons where I just find Katsuki and Izuku to be more interesting and dynamic characters than Shouto Todoroki and Eijirou Kirishima.

As a sidenote: I am fond of Shouto and Eijirou, but they are not even close to being on the same level of fondness I have for Izuku and Katsuki. 

Also, because this is a personal preference, I am far too fond of the Katsuki/Izuku dynamic to even ship them apart from each other. In my crazy mind, no other character could balance them out through these theoretical conclusions I’ve come up with myself. 

When speaking canonically, though, just through interactions and the general “sweetness” associated with them, TodoDeku and KiriBaku both have more basis than KatsuDeku. 

However, just because I’m acknowledging the vaster potential these two ships have in comparison to my OTP, does not mean that I like mine any less. 

Also, yeah, people seem to really enjoy the idea of Shinsou Hitoshi having a thing for Izuku. I think that’s fine. But, I’ll never understand the overall idea of… everyone, being shipped with Izuku Midoriya. I think he’s too complex to just be paired off with everyone.

I actually cannot stand the concept of “Dekubowl” and three-way ships. 

The OT3 in the fandom, TodoBakuDeku, drives me absolutely insane. I hate it, exponentially. But again, just because I hate it doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with it. It just doesn’t fit my preferences.

So. That was… long. My bad, Anon. But, there you go. I picked TodoDeku and KiriBaku to focus on by comparison because that’s kind of the contrasting factor paired against the KatsuDeku ship. 

I respect all ships and try to see the logical reasoning behind all of them (especially when mine has far little by comparison). But, no, I cannot ship outside of the ones I’ve chosen.

Thanks for the ask, Anon!

“Oh god alright, alright! Just…A few…More…So close…Ah!”

You finished, collapsing onto the floor, panting heavily.

If anyone were to hear the noises that were coming from your home, they certainly would get ideas. Yet fortunately you weren’t exercising quite in that way.

“I hate situps. Why did I think adding them into my training was okay?”

“Because I suggested it to you,” Gaston smiled from his seat a few feet away. Though he was your trainer, he spent his time ‘encouraging’ you, or as you liked to say, “Threatening you to do better or else he’ll up the ante and add three times the amount of training you already were doing to your workout.”

He preferred his way of saying it more.

“I regret asking your opinion,” you say, dragging yourself onto the couch.

“I offered to beat that guy up for you, but you said -”

“I am perfectly capable of handling myself, I just need to buff up a bit. Yes, I am fully aware, thank you.”

“You’re welcome.”

“It was sarcasm.”

“…You’re welcome.”

You wiped the sweat off of your forehead, “Maybe I should let you just beat that guy up after all.”

“No, you’re in this for the real deal now. I’m just here to make sure you don’t slack. Now c’mon, thirty second planks. Or would you prefer the half mile run first?” he smirked, raising an eyebrow.

“Just, a five minute break, please…” you closed your eyes, still gasping for air.

“If you do the half-mile, I’ll run it with you, and you know -”

“- That you run shirtless, yes I know. I’ll take the planks, please.”

“Oh, come on! I have nice abs.”

“More like flabs, really.”

“You did not just - You know what? Fine,” his voice went from playfully flirty to seriously offended, “You’re doing two minute planks, and you’ll do the full mile run. Alone. With none of my amazing qualities, abs included, to accompany you,” he crossed his arms and looked away in a childlike fashion.

“Flabs.”

“THEY ARE NOT FLABS.”

Maybe the guy is really just Uta in disguise. He sounded like Uta because he was speaking as Yomo's friend so maybe he just pretended to be a normal and random instigator from s3. It reminded me of when Furuta imagined his parents when Marude shot him earlier.

Hello Anon! Actually, it’s @linkspooky‘s opinion as well that the guy who might be Uta…

is just supposed to represent “Random S3 Investigator” and that’s why Ishida didn’t bother with drawing him a more expressive and detailed face. 

I just don’t want to trust Sensei and “logic” too much though, just in case. I mean, look at Furuta, he might be Kaneki’s shadow and “the main enemy” but Sensei writes him as “ridiculous” more often than not.
So, considering how Uta is such a cool and strong character with this incredible design, I wouldn’t be surprised if maybe this above was actually Uta’s “real face" just because Sensei wants to troll us some more.

Besides, considering that we discovered Roma’s secret earlier in the arc, it makes sense that the remaining Clowns might also have secrets that Ishida is still keeping from us readers.

Both possibilities work in my opinion so we’ll just have to wait and see. :)

Thanks for your thoughts Anon and have a nice day!


Hello Anon and not at all, he’s not threatening Yomo, on the contrary! 

Yomo wanted to go rescue Hina and Touka…

even though he was already quite tired after the fight against Mutsuki and Aura.

So the guy who might be Uta simply warned him that he probably wouldn’t be able to win a similar fight again and that he might as well abandon those who were about to die (especially since it used to be Yomo’s mindset to ‘live while losing things’ for a long time), to which Yomo said he wouldn’t mind dying if that could rescue them. 

TL;DR more death flags for Uncle Yomo since he really wanted to go save Hina and Touka, but maybe “Uta” decided to help him as “his friend” when he realized Yomo wouldn’t give up (and in that case, he might be the one who saved Hina if it wasn’t Kaneki).

I hope it helps, have a nice day!

Honestly? Thank GOD you guys are doing this. Tumblr has fallen into a deathly spiral and now, especially with NetNeutrality no longer being allowed to have an opinion on by staff, a new blogging platform who actually had their stuff together will be amazing. Question, though; will Tumblr-like s*itposts be allowed? Or is it more of an all-art sort of deal?

Shitposting is encouraged! Memes, rants, debates, discussions, philosophy, politics, pottery: you name it, we want to see it!

Thank you for your kind words <3

Net Neutrality hasn’t come up yet, so I want to briefly mention that we fully support Net Neutrality and hope to be able to throw our support behind it whenever possible.

Thinking Aloud #3 - Sorting Hat Theories (part 1)

/side note/ This type of post doesn’t really seem to get nearly as many notes (which obviously isn’t the most important thing), even though I really enjoy writing them. I’ll probably continue to do these, but I’d like anyone who reads this to either message me, reblog with a comment, or something and give me your opinion on these posts. I’d really just like to know what you guys think and what I could possibly do to improve these. Thanks! /side note/

I’m not sure how many of these I’ll do, but I’d like to make a couple more posts on this topic alone, so be on the lookout in the future. The Sorting Hat is something that has never really been very throughly explained by J.K. Rowling. Naturally, many theories have sprung up on the Internet, as well as in my own mind. Although she claims that it has never been wrong, there is debate in the fandom as to whether or not the Sorting Hat is completely accurate or if it sorts students too early. However, let’s first talk a little bit about the history of the Hat itself. 

The Sorting Hat originally belonged to Godric Gryffindor, one of the original four founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, specifically the founder of Gryffindor House, and is believed to have just been an ordinary hat at the time. The founders decided that they needed some way to sort the students of Hogwarts once they were dead. Gryffindor pulled his hat from his head, and the four founders enchanted the hat with their combined intelligence, as well as with the power of Legilimency, the act of magically navigating through the layers of a person’s mind and correctly interpreting one’s findings or what Muggles would call “mind-reading.” The Sorting Hat was designed to select students based on each founder’s particular preferences in those students. 

Ok. Now we got that out of the way, let’s get into the theories. The one that I myself personally like the most is the one that states that the Sorting Hat sorts based on what traits the students value most instead of what traits they actually have. When I first came across this theory on a Reddit post, I thought it was kinda weird, but the more I think about it, the more it makes sense to me. Those who most value bravery and courage are sorted into Gryffindor. Those who seek out knowledge and understanding are sorted into Ravenclaw. Those who believe in fairness and hard work are sorted into Hufflepuff. Those who prize ambition and determination are sorted into Slytherin. 

The main thing that sold this theory for me is the dead-weight characters in the series who don’t really fit anywhere, such as Crabbe and Goyle. This also applies to the characters who don’t (at least at first) really embody their house characteristics, such as Neville Longbottom or Peter Pettigrew, or rather just fit the qualities of a different house better, like Hermione Granger. I mean, how can you even really define the core traits of a person at just eleven years old? Well, this theory explains why characters who don’t fit their assigned houses (or any houses) are sorted into those houses any more. 

Crabbe and Goyle both came from pure-blood families, most, if not all, of them Slytherin. They were likely raised in environments that greatly valued the Slytherin qualities of resourcefulness, ambition, cunningness, determination, self-preservation, fraternity, and cleverness, and were likely pressured by their families to also be sorted into Slytherin House. (Also, it’s hard to believe that virtually every member of a family could be sorted into the same house if it was based solely on personality. When have you heard of a family that all have basically the same personality?) This explains why these two, who don’t really possess any of the Slytherin traits to any extent, would be sorted into the house. It is because those are the beliefs that they were raised to believe were important. 

With Neville, his parents, Alice and Frank Longbottom, were attacked by four death eaters and tortured into insanity by the Cruciatus Curse. They were admitted St. Mungo’s Hospital, where they would spend the rest of their lives, unable to recognize their son. Therefore, Neville was raised by his paternal grandmother, Augusta. Neville himself demonstrates very little innate courage and is practically scared of his shadow when he first gets to Hogwarts. My guess here is that Neville wants to be brave like his parents were. He has looked up to them for his entire life and has had to live with the direct consequences of his parents being courageous enough to defy Lord Voldemort and his Death Eaters. He desires more than anything to make them proud (even though they don’t remember him) and live up to their legacy.

It can be argued that the Sorting Hat simply has some way of knowing what the future holds, because Neville eventually does live up to the values of Gryffindor, joins Dumbledore’s Army, and fights in the Battle of Hogwarts. However, Peter Pettigrew, who was also sorted into Gryffindor House, never demonstrates any courage or bravery in the Harry Potter series. In fact, his whole character is defined by his cowardice.

I could go on and on about this. Harry Potter seemingly chose Gryffindor over Slytherin because of his distaste for Slytherin. Hermione Granger, an intellectual, I assume chose Gryffindor over Ravenclaw to be like her Gryffindor heroes and likely because Ron had mentioned how he believed Gryffindor was the best house while on the train to Hogwarts.  The child’s choice of house and beliefs matter just as much or more than the actual traits they have. This is supported by the fact that Harry tells his son, Albus, that, “the Sorting Hat takes your choice into account.” 

It helps that the kids who have similar values are put together. If you put a bunch of people together who value, for example, learning and intelligence, you will probably see them start to become smarter. 

This theory also helps explain why the houses can often have such a difficult time getting along. If it were merely a case of different basic personalities, I believe inter-house relationships would be a lot better and more common. Also, there is undoubtedly great variance in personalities within even one house, so that alone seems to make the house selection based more on beliefs than personality. Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that the differences between the houses are ideological and philosophical rather than just personality differences. The houses have different opinions on what values are most important, how the world should operate, and how people should think. And when a group of people who think the same way are isolated together, the differences between groups become more polarizing and the students are trapped in echo chambers where their beliefs are not often challenged. 

ANYWAY, this is my personal favorite theory on how the Sorting Hat works, but I plan on going over more of them in the future. Hopefully they won’t be this long next time. Thanks for reading!

hi neatoh thanks for doing some prompts <3 number 7 with tim and kon bff's please ? :)

7: for warmth

Conner Kent is squinting down at the expanse of white below. The sleet is seriously messing with his view, and it’s not nearly so fun to fly in the freezing temperature.

But something, he knows, isn’t right. 

Which is why, when he sees the tiny figure below, he drops like a stone. Zeroing in. The figure is dark against the white of the snow, casting too-long shadows and visibly struggling in the knee-deep, powdery snowfield. But even from here, Conner knows.

It’s him.

Soooo. Opinions?

Not that my Yoonseok AU is over yet, but I’m planning out the next one that way I don’t have a break between them. So once I finish this one, I will be starting another one.

I’d like your opinions though…..

How would you guys feel about having the next AU be a Namjin one? Well, I mean, it’ll be Namjin anyways haha but how would you feel about it being a Soulmate Namjin? I won’t go into many details, but they’re soulmates and yeah. Thoughts?

Also, how would it guys feel if I was also releasing a Namjin fic at the same time as the AU? So like actual chapters and words, not pictures?

Let me know~~~ (girl let me know, girl let me know, I just wanna know know know)

Typical right wing hate blog. Wants to act all pseudo-intellectual and doesn't realize he just needs to be dragged outside and beaten senseless. Not for any political reason, but because you're a weak little prick that just daydreams about being Ben Shapiro's willing cuck while Joe Rogan jerks off to it in the corner. You want to be gang fucked by people smarter than you so bad you pretend you're one of them.

I lol at how many things you got wrong about me.

Not a rightwinger, not a man either, not a gay man either. lol tells me a lot about you though, anon, I struck a nerve and you assume I’m a gay guy with the ‘wrong opinions’ and therefore I must be corrected and “beaten senselss”. Wow.. LOL nice asumptions you got there. Too bad for you that is all you got. toughen up, and dont project your cuckness onto me, thanks.

Simself Tag

I was tagged by both @rosiesimming and @wonderlandishsims! Thanks guys. I have one simself that I made a while ago, though I really only have one picture of her where she truly resembles me. This will be the only pic you’ll ever see of her, because I really don’t like playing as myself in the sims.This is it!

Rules: post a picture of your self-sim and answer these questions, then tag some friends.

Favorite season -  Well I actually change my opinion of this every season lol. In winter I prefer summer and in summer I prefer winter XD. Right now it’s freaking cold in my room and because I have a shitty electric heater I can’t warm it up properly. But when I’m in summer I lack AC and I can’t sleep properly because of the heat. Ohh the struggles! I definitely don’t like autumn because of the insects and rain and spring because of allergies though. I might become a winter person when I move into a better apartment next year.

favorite books/author - I know a writer should have a favorite author but I don’t really have one lol. I hardly have any time to read fiction anymore because of university. All the fiction I read nowadays are sims stories really. Whenever I do read a book I usually put it down real fast because it gave me inspiration to write something myself.

favorite song -  I always listen to random spotlight genre playlists and really don’t pay attention to what songs are playing.

favorite food and drink - My favorite drink is Iced tea green. Favorite food uhh… probably pita shawarma but I love any kind of Japanese or Korean food that doesn’t involve fish or seafood really! Teriyaki, dim sum, korean bbq, bibimbap, deokkbokki, mmhh <3.

dogs or cats - I gotta say dogs. I had a dog at my dad’s house (already showed u guys this week) and I still have two cats at my mom’s house, but I felt more connected to my dog. I absolutely love my cats as well though!

muirin007  asked:

You may have been asked this before, but who are your ideal VC cast members, face claim-wise? Have you ever seen anyone and though, "THAT's exactly how I picture Lestat/Louis/Armand etc.?"

First of all, omg you are one of my fave VC fanartists *appreciative flailing* thank u so much for asking my opinion on this!

You guys, this is one of @muirin007’s fanarts [X] and still one of my absolute faves, from when I began this blog:

Yes, I have been asked this before but my opinions do change over time, and it’s always worth taking a fresh stab at it *,….,*

Some of this is a dreamcast for obvious reasons, and I’m limiting it to The Vampire Lestat, since it looks like that’s the focus of the new adaptation (And I’m also giving myself the difficulty of not recasting anyone from movie!IWTV bc u all know how attached I am to all of those actors by now). And I tried to pick ppl that would mesh well together as a set. Some characters get alot of commentary and some get none. These are the ppl that give me that “THAT’s exactly how I picture Lestat/Louis/Armand etc.?” feeling.

There are alot more options in the #VC casting tag, if you have some time to kill!  

Lestat de Lioncourt: Brett Scallions from Fuel, circa the 90′s.

^screencaps from the Bad Day video

He’s already an actual rockstar. He can play guitar. His singing voice is close to my headcanon of Lestat’s. Yes, somewhat nasal, vocal growl, some range. IMO, he has the perfect build, and yeah, he’s attractive, but what makes him so magnetic and not just another slab of manflesh are his huge soulful eyes and that generous mouth, which really can look cruel at times. He just needs a little dental work and a quality hairstylist. [Some more of my fave pics of him here]

Runner ups: Taylor Hanson circa the 90′s (VERY CLOSE SECOND CHOICE), Gaspard Ulliel, Charlie Hunnam, Travis Fimmel, Cary Elwes circa the 90′s, and Martin Rolinski.

Nicolas de Lenfent: Benedict Samuel, 2016

I’ve only seen him recently in The Walking Dead, and you have to see him in that, bc he’s as sweet and tender and intense and depressive as Nicolas needs to be. Physically, these full lips and dark brooding eyes, the wide smile that’s almost manic and the frown that speaks to a deeper well of misery that no one can hope to touch. Am I praising him too much? PROBABLY BUT I DO WHAT I WANT. [I wax on poetic about him a little more here]

Runner ups: David Garrett (ACTUAL violinist), Anthony Misiano (that high quality Joker cosplayer!), Sebastian StanJonas Kesseler (model), Ezra Miller

Louis de Pointe du Lac: Miles McMillan

Actually I haven’t found my perfect headcanon of Louis yet, but for now, he’s a placeholder. While Louis isn’t a ~starring~ character in TVL, he is mentioned, and what with being compared to Nicolas, I have to include him. 

I feel like Miles has the slender build, the soulfulness to his expression, and he looks great dressed up w/ disheveled hair. [X]

[Moar pics of Miles and reasons here]

Runner ups: Florian Pessenteiner, Henry Cavil circa 2002, Trent Reznor circa the 90′s, Peter Steele of Type O Negative (Steele is a little too masculine but his eyes are perfection).

Gabrielle de Lioncourt: Grace Kelly, The Swan, 1956

SHE’S JUST SO PERF. She looks like she’s about to say, “BTW I do not hold back in combat so you better come at me with 110% bitch.”

Runner ups: Michelle PfeifferCate Blanchett, Nicole KidmanCatherine Deneuve circa the 80’s, Charlize Theron, Connie Nielsen.

Marquis Valère de Lioncourt: Timothy Omundson, 2016

I can’t explain. JUST WANT. He is a very likable bully in Galavant and tbh I imagine Lestat’s Dad would have a sense of humor, and that’s partially where Lestat got it from. Unfortunately, that wasn’t all he got from his father. [Moar gifs and pics I’ve gathered of him here]

Marius de Romanus: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, 2016

I can’t explain. JUST WANT. A better father-figure for Lestat, one he would have given just about anything to stay with for awhile.

Also, David Bowie bc of reasons:

Runner ups: Michael Fassbender (CLOSE SECOND CHOICE), Lee Pace as Thranduil

The vampire Armand: Björn Andrésen, 70′s

^He’s a fandom fave.[Moar of him here].

But okay, or, 

The vampire Armand: Matthew Clavane, 2016

I can’t explain rn. JUST WANT. [Reasons and more pics here

the vampire Magnus - Alice Cooper circa Suck, 2009

^Reasons should be pretty obvious.

Akasha, Queen of the Damned: Nicki Minaj or Rihanna

^[fanart source X, pic source X] BC OF REASONS. Women empowerment. Beauty. Mystery. All dat and a bag of chips. [Moar Nicki, Moar Rihanna]

Runner up: Tyra Banks.

So: 

3 De Lioncourts:

And that’s just my opinion, you guys are free to disagree, but please do so w/ respect bc this took alot of guts and alot of time and ALOT of effort to put together!

Remember:

#Your Headcanon May Vary

“Oh come on, it can’t be that bad,” Lance grumbled. He had been standing outside the bathroom stall for what felt like thirty minutes, though it was probably closer to five. Either way, it was taking forever. He was bored.

“It keeps riding up!” Keith snarled, his voice echoing strangely off of the bathroom’s tiled walls. “I told you it was too small!”

“It’s supposed to do that,” Lance insisted with a gusty sigh. “Pidge does not make mistakes when it comes to cosplay. She’s a perfectionist. If she tells you it fits, it fits. Now just hurry up and come out of there already!”
