The Jones Brothers’ King


Okay, so I spend my spare time pondering on writing a fic of Killian’s entire life, just getting all the juicy details in there.  Anyway, I’ve been laboring over the identity of the king, you know, the asshole who sent him and Liam off to fetch scary poison.  I liked the idea of him being a figure from fairytale/literature/etc, because, duh, it’s Once.  

I’ve been pondering a lot of options, doing research, all that jazz.  The very first option I jotted down was Agamemnon of Iliad fame. He’s a royal bag of dicks, and the Jones bros seem to have caught the attention of more than one of the Greek gods, so I thought he might fun thematically, but didn’t want to put all my eggs in one basket.  This was weeks ago.

Fast forward to when I lost my fucking mind driving to campus this morning.  I’m just letting my mind wander, thinking about Killian’s rage, as I do at least once per day.  Suddenly it hits me.  The opening stanza of the fucking Iliad:

Rage – Goddess, sing the rage of Peleus’ son Achilles,
murderous, doomed, that cost the Achaeans countless losses,
hurling down to the House of Death so many sturdy souls,
great fighters’ souls, but made their bodies carrion,
feasts for the dogs and birds,
and the will of Zeus was moving toward its end.
Begin, Muse, when the two first broke and clashed,
Agamemnon lord of men and brilliant Achilles. 

Like… Fuuuuuuuuuuck.  I don’t know how I didn’t see it before!  Rage!  That is the whole fucking point of the fucking Iliad!  Rage!  Rage and revenge and warfare and how the only possible result of rage is death and destruction and despair.  How an eye for an eye ends with everyone blind!  AGH!  Killian is fucking Achilles!  And Patroclus, his brother in arms, his lover, is divided in two via Liam and Milah, Killian’s brother and his lover!  

And when Patroclus dies… Achilles burns the fucking world to the ground.  And the whole fucking epic poem exist to show that men just keep making war on each other and seeing revenge on each other and how there is no possible good outcome for this shit.  It’s an attempt to get the audience to stop and think and hopefully realize that we need to stop with the violence because it only hurts ourselves.  And that’s Killian’s arc and Killian is Achilles and I’m dead.  I’m fucking dead.


And I just fucking can’t.  This English major got struck by fucking lightening while driving to class this morning and just had to go about her day like it was any fucking Wednesday, like I didn’t get clobbered by divine inspiration in the front seat of my fucking Mazda.  An actual fucking muse floated her ass into the passenger seat of my car and like whispered in my ear or some shit.  That’s how I feel right now.

TL:DR – My new headcanon forever is that Agamemnon was the king Liam and Killian served.  I’m building my house on this mountain, and I will die up here.

@queen-mabs-revenge and @gusenitsaa maybe you’ll enjoy this as well?

I know that Yahaba slaming Kyoutani against a wall is like THE Kyouhaba moment, but...

This is always going to be my favorite Kyouhaba moment… 

That subtle I’m your ace I will spike any toss you give me” is just… jdfioajsdfajdiofjaiodjfaidjfioajdoifaj. Kyoutani slaming that toss and scoring a point, for someone with not so much confidence in the court, like Yahaba, IS important. 

Goal: Tag 9 people and get to know them better. [Tagged by @angel-gidget ]

Last Movie: Heathers (and soon after Heathers the Musical). I’m waiting for more free time and I’m dragging my new fandom-friend from college to see Justice League ( she already promised me :D )

Relationship Status: In three-way relationship with Physics and Chemistry. The pull is too strong. (Joking - I’m single since the beginning of the universe. Wouldn’t mind company.)

Favorite Colors: ALL of THEM. But I’m weak for peach-like orange and various blues - can’t decide which shade is the best.

Lipstick or Chapstick: Chapstick is mandatory for autumn and winter. Lipstick if I feel like it (and wouldn’t be bad for the occasion)

Last Song: (Too hard question - I have on going playlist almost every moment I’m awake.) So three picks, because I can’t decide: 1) “Everybody loves somebody” by Frank Sinatra; 2) “Miłość Miłość“ (ang: ‘Love Love’) by Krzysztof Zalewski (watch official video here!!!) 3) “Evo-devo” (and other by acapellascience songs - I also recommend “Molecular shape of you” and “CRISPR-Cas9” :P )

Top Three Shows: (…every show has some faults, it’s really hard to decide which I like best! Besides, I haven’t seen A LOT of shows, soo…) 1) Eyeshield 21; 2) White Collar ; 3) …Bitter Blood?

Top Three Ships at the Moment: Me/good time management ; Tim Drake/whoever is good right now for that boy ; my experiments/expected results

Ok, I would like to tag: @chiakifics @jasontoddscoffin @iphoenixrising and… I don’t know - whoever wants to. I haven’t talked to many people here (yet).

(And tagged people above - don’t feel obligated to do it. Sorry If I’m dragging you into this mess)
