the boy who didn't know

Hey hey hey I’m still a trainwreck who doesn’t know how to keep a consistent art style how are you.

So there’s a moment I’ve been wanting to talk about in Extra Game. There are five seconds left on the clock, Akashi is facing down Nash, and he doesn’t think he can make it.

When Kuroko pops out and steals the ball from behind Nash, thus saving the game:

This moment is interesting to me specifically because of Nash’s power, Demon Eye.

Demon Eye allows Nash to see the whole court and every player with the precision of Akashi’s Emperor Eye (it’s ridiculous and I love it). But what else do we know about Nash’s Demon Eye? Very little – Extra Game was very compressed, and didn’t waste much time explaining it. However, we do know about Akashi’s Emperor Eye.

Now, the showdowns between Akashi and Kuroko are little to none. Akashi doesn’t ankle break Kuroko, and Kuroko doesn’t attempt to use misdirection on him (personally, I always thought it was meant to imply their abilities didn’t work on each other, or weren’t useful). There is, however, one notable exception – the only time we ever see Kuroko steal a ball from Akashi. Kuroko’s Quasi Emperor Eye.

According to the rules established in-universe, the only way Kuroko can steal a ball from Akashi is using QEE; so, in order to do the same to Nash, he must use at least QEE to get the ball. And the only person he could have been using that ability with here was Akashi.

Hence: Kuroko has used Quasi Emperor Eye with two people only – once against Akashi, and once with Akashi. Kuroko is so in tune with Akashi in this moment he’s able to predict his movements faster than Akashi himself can. As the manga put it,

“It’s not something [Kuroko] can use on his opponents. He can only use this on his teammates, with whom he’s devoted so much time to building up trust with. However, it’s because he has that trust… that he can see into the future, an instant farther than even Akashi.”

Hak really likes calling himself the Dark Dragon. Like, really likes it. It’s not even because he’s a dragon fanboy, it’s just because he thinks it sounds cool.

But he doesn’t do this much to the other dragons’ faces. I’ll bet that as much as he wants that to be his nickname (sure, Thunder Beast is cool and all, but that got old), he doesn’t want to admit that to the real dragons, especially after all that “smelly old ancient power of a white snake” trash talk. 

Hak is such a dork, but he still wants his new family to think he’s cool. 

He is the Dork Dragon.

But real talk, Noodle’s character development hit its peak when she “died”, and that’s sad as fuck. It’s like every time something cool could be done with her, ol’ boy’s like “Hmm… How about instead of doing something actually interesting, I make her even more boring? Yes, I’m a genius!”
This woman is a former child soldier, a deep thinker, a big feminist, apparently some sort of engineer now (?), a racer, travels through the postal service, extremely physically strong, a demon-slayer, enriched in her culture, and a musical mastermind, but even with all those super intriguing things about her, they’re handled in such a way that I can barely bring myself to give a shit. It’s like, she does all those amazing things, but she has no personality anymore. She’s just a husk carrying out these amazing feats, not a person.
But! I have really high hopes for her this phase. I truly believe she’s going to be great this time around. I’m anxious, but also really excited.

behind the sea // panic! at the disco

Frank: I’d like to see you in a silk dress.
Max: Would you?
Frank: So I could tear it off you ;)
Max: You rip my pretty silk dress and I’ll blacken your eye.

I wanted to do this months ago but never finished it so here we are! It’s nothing much but I know some people wanted a reference sheet for him long ago, so I got a simple one for you, plus a few different face angles. It’s enough to give you guys a bit of help with drawing him. Anyways have fun with him!

when pete went to go see panic! at the disco perform that very first day, ryan and brendon played their songs alone, together, acoustically. can you believe that ryan and brendon’s relationship ALONE was enough for pete to realize that they were going to be something special? their chemistry built panic! at the disco and I will never forget that.

But Matt’s Genuine Distress™ at not knowing Stephanie’s favourite colour tho.

Get u a mans who can do both ;)

(he/him)
ur fav andro boyo is here n queer n had to present Female yesterday bc he needs work but according to he mother nobody will hire him if he dresses like a boy (she wrong af tho)

Shouji Mezou/Satou Rikidou is now called RikiZou

I was two seconds away from calling it ShoTou and then it occurred to me that it might be a little confusing

SOME HEADCANONS BECAUSE THIS IS A SHIP THAT SHOULD BE CONSIDERED!!!!! IT’S GOOD PLS CONSIDER!!!!!!!!!

  • They’re the two biggest kids in Class 1-A so they bond over their inability to really relate in the struggles of their tiny/smaller classmates
  • Rikidou prefers to hang out with slightly quieter people, i.e. Kouda so Shouji and him get along GREAT
  • “Hey Mezou, what’ve you got there?” *distinct grape like muffled yelling in a sack* “…nothing.” “Great, want help burying nothing?”
  • “Does this taste okay to you?” “…it’s takoyaki flavored?” “Yeah I made it for you.” Mezou: *is absolutely touched*
  • One of their fave things to do is literally fight
  • they spar all the time because they wanna fight someone closer to their size because they don’t wanna accidentally crush anyone else
  • ARM WRESTLING IS A CORNERSTONE OF THEIR RELATIONSHIP
  • Rikidou: *points to calamari* It’s you.
  • Mezou: *points to a cake* Right back at you.
  • They try to study together but they both kinda suck at studying so they just kinda try their best and hope Bakugou will tolerate them in study sessions (he kinda does because they’re pretty neutral)
  • Rikidou wears the absolutely ugliest fucking sweaters on god’s green earth and Shouji straight up telling him “You wear that in public and I suddenly don’t know you”
  • RIKIDOU LOVES IT WHEN SHOUJI PICKS HIM UP BECAUSE HE CAN’T REMEMBER THE LAST TIME HE WAS PICKED UP
  • SHOUJI FAINTS IN RIKIDOU’S ARMS WHEN HE’S SUDDENLY IN A BRIDAL CARRY
  • WELCOME TO THE GUN SHOW
  • Riki’s brain going out the window after too much sugar and straight up annihilating Shouji’s embarrassment after he flirts shamelessly 
  • KITCHEN GODS
  • all of Satou’s kitchen expertise + Shouji’s many hands = PERFECT
  • Not enough blanket during cuddle time so they have ONE GIANT BLANKET MOMO MADE AND IT’S HELLA SOFT
  • Satou is able to keep minimalist aesthetic for Shouji a little bit but Shouji also finds that he doesn’t mind the grandpa baker vibe either
  • They are the designated tall helpers in group outings so whenever they separate they continually text each other pictures with emojis

THAT’S ALL I GOT SO FAR PLS ENJOY

BONUS:

  • Shouji gets a “Kiss the Baker” apron for Satou and shyly pecks his cheek every time he wears it
  • Satou getting Shouji a pink face mask with little cupcakes printed on it and Shouji doesn’t take it off for like a week

i’ve literally been sitting in my bed crying for the past 20 minutes about varian pls don’t hurt my baby boy
