Could the Candy be something other then the ring. Kuroshitsuji Chapter 128
Okay throwing this out there as a means of dealing with
what’s going on in Kuroshitsuji and the events that have unfolded recently. To
those looking for the new Voltron Shipping list, working on that as we speak.
Anyway, what I wanted to talk about was something that has
been bothering me for a while in regard to the recent situations regarding the
Blue Sect arc and what people have been ignoring in regard to story lines and
developments, in favor of the 2CT theory. So before I begin I’d like to lay out
some ground work.
First we need to talk about demons and exactly the rules
that have been set forth by events in the manga. We know that in order to
summon a demon you must be willing to give up your soul for a wish. This means
that no murder has to be done, no blood sacrifice, just someone willing to give
up their soul. The reason I bring this up is because of the rules set forth by
1. You have to be willing to give up your soul to summon
2. Normal events that were seen as witch meetings or what
the cult was doing would not work.
By these two rules alone we now know that a demon cannot be
summoned by a normal kill them all way. This also means that the person that
was killed on the table was NOT the reason why Sebastian was summoned. Rather
either Ciel was wishing it at the time and Sebastian heard it, or someone else
was wishing to have a demon come with all their soul.
Keep in mind that if there was a twin this would mean that
his wish was to summon a demon for some reason. If he died he would have had to
have been reaped right away. Or his soul would have been devoured at some point
given that the wish would need to be fulfilled before the demon could eat.
Problem is that Sebastian hasn’t eaten. We know that because
he says he hasn’t. So if there was a twin, where is the soul exactly?
Second we have to discuss what Sebastian also said, and I’m
going via the fan translation, as I do not have that issue and I need to get it
next time I go to the book store. Sebastian mentions off handedly, that there
are some that appear at random though. This adds to the rules that demons have
to apparently abide by.
1. They need to be summoned normally.
2. In order to summon them you have to have a strong wish
and a willingness to part with your soul.
3. Some demons do not need summons and appear randomly,
meaning that they break the rules.
We know that there are quirky demons, Sebastian is one of
them as he’s a picky eater. Yet his line about them appearing randomly was so
throw away I don’t think people really thought about it at the time. I need
this kept in mind.
One other factor that needs to be mentioned is that Othello
notes in discussing demons, he states that the people the normally summon
demons are those that are simplistic, as we saw with the people that wanted
Sebastian and that he refused them as their wishes were dull, and once the wish
is fulfilled the contracts done and the person is dead.
However he also notes that there are situations where
there’s someone that is beyond the simple wish idea, and that makes things that
are groundbreaking, thus keeping the demon interested in the long haul.
We also know, thanks to Sebastian, that demons can and do
change their looks. Sebastian became the human butler that we all know about,
and he’s also made himself out to look like other people (although he’s mostly
retained his normal looks for reasons).
So to add in on the rules that we have about demons we now
1. They need to be
summoned normally via someone willing to give up their soul to get the wish.
2. Witches Sabbaths
and events like the Cults activity would not summon a demon
3. Normal demons tend
to not be picky about who and tend to prefer to take contracts from.
4. Demons tend to
take Simple people as they are a one and done situation for them to eat.
5. There are abnormal
demons that have quirks ala Sebastian
6. Some Demons do not
need to be summoned and appear at random
7. Some demons do not
pick simple people and help develop amazing things with them.
8. Demons can change
With these facts in mind we need to delve into the next
Second fact that I want to talk about is the fact that we
have Othello’s comments at the start and it’s restated later before the attack
on Soma and Agni.
In the scene early on we have Grell hanging around, as you
do, and suddenly in pops Othello noting he’s there to investigate matters
because the deaths seem weird. Fast forward to the first time the demon is
mentioned by the forensic officer.
When he’s talking about the machines they find in the back
room, Othello notes that demons have helped people create such things, but this
seems even bigger than just that. Given what we know now about the size of the
operation there’s a possibility that you could still do what needed to be done
and build things if you have the right number of people, as the Green witch arc
Furthermore the second time a demon is mentioned directly by
Othello is when he’s talking about events that are happening in the record. He
mentions that demons can act as an external influence that could change things
This I think is a strong hint in connection to the record
book that there are demons that might be involved in all of this. We know from
Othello now that a demonic influence can not only affect the life of the
contractor but also everyone around that persons as well.
Thirdly, let’s talk about the ring that Ciel had in
Sebastian’s memories. We see that the ring is in a pool of blood in Ciel’s
hand. However the hand is not covered in blood the way that you would have it
if you were rooting around someone’s inside. It would be far messier and while
Ciel’s cuffs are covered in blood, this may not be from digging a ring out of
someone’s stomach. If it is, that’s one of the cleanest jobs I’ve ever seen, or
the ring didn’t go all way down into the guts.
In a number of cases people had hidden items by swallowing
that item and throwing them up later. This could be the case with Ciel, where
the blood we see is from his throat after he threw up the contents inside him
(what little he probably had) and the ring from probably cutting up tissue and
such in the throat. Vomiting up a ring could take a while as you have to empty a
lot out of your guts and you can, and do, in some cases puke blood.
Fourthly we have to talk about the fire, or rather demonic
fire to be honest.
According to Undertaker Vincent was burned up to the point
that there was no bones left. We know for a fact that when Sebastian burned the
house down in the circus arc there was no one there but doll whom they had to
kill. We also know that Sebastian burned down the original cult house and that
was an inferno.
Lastly we need to talk in short of Doll and Snake. During
the Circus arc we saw that every member of the group was killed save her until
the very end. We know that because of the fact that the two of them are alive
that someone could have gotten out of the fire situation if they were outside
of the range of it.
So based on recent events in the story and older chapters
I’m going to put forth a theory as to what might be happening in regard to the
death of Agni and why of all people Soma was targeted.
Adding this in because I thought this was really rather
interesting and it connects to something I’m about to bring up down below. @thedarkestcrow and @midnight-in-town, both had connecting posts (here and here) in regard to this asked
What if there is no Twin.” .
In their post the poster noted the possibility of someone gas
lighting Ciel into thinking his twin was alive. This could fall right into what
Blavat wants and makes additional sense. They also noted that someone had to
have told Baron Kelvin about what the set up was for the cult event that he
missed. This means that there’s the chance that someone survived. And we know
that one can survive the demon fire if you’re not in the place when it’s
burning. Doll was only killed after she made it to the location, so we know
that once outside you can live.
There’s also the fact that Ciel has been carried out of the
fire by Sebastian, and we know that demons can control fire.
We know for a fact that whoever broke into the house was
someone that knew about the events the night of the cult. Now the only people
that we know of that know of what was going down there was Ciel, Sebastian and
possibly one other person. This one other person may have been Blavat. We don’t
know anything about his past but what we have gleaned so far is that he’s
someone that knows how to manage large events, and that he has money to spend
on the concert hall and costumes. Has connections to Nina, and also has shown
that he has religious devotion to the Blue Star given everything that he’s
We also know that when he saw Ciel he was surprised to see
him in the first place. As if he recognized him and Sebastian.
So could it be that Blavat had been someone like Joker and
the Circus crew at one point. A person that had lost their way and was in need
of care and compassion, and the person that took him in was a member? Or it
could very well be that he was one of the people that was being held by the cult?
Either way, he may have been out of range of the fire that night and saw Ciel
and Sebastian. So could he have been the person to have told the baron how to
build the room.
However I have to wonder about that Tummy thing. We’re all
predisposed by now to assume it’s the ring. Clearly Yana wants us to think it’s
the ring and Ciel seems to think it’s the ring or at least something akin to
it. We’re also guessing that the warning was for Ciel, but what if that’s not
Yes it was put in Ciel’s room but who would be the first to
see it going in. Sebastian. Now the weird thing about the situation for me regarding
the ring and the message, why would Polaris carve that into the wall? If Twin
Ciel was dead at the moment, would he even realize the ring had been taken out
of him? Assuming the Who means that he doesn’t know who did it, then why put it
in Ciel’s room?
There’s another thing that it could be referring to, that
being a soul. So let’s say for this moment that the twin is dead. No bringing
him back. If I was a demon that had had wanted a meal, and Sebastian took my
place, I would be rather unhappy. Remember Sebastian did say that he was a
picky eater, and that souls are a full on meal for them.
If Ciel’s soul is so
unique that Sebastian, who is starving, is willing to wait for it, that’s a
damn fine treat. Any demon would see this soul as a form of delicacy or candy.
So that message may not be directly for Ciel that could be for Sebastian.
The other thing is that if they are gas lighting Ciel, then could
it be rather than a normal human that has taken the form of Ciel’s twin, could
that be a demon? Remember they can look however they want, and if that’s the
case, then maybe the reason they were targeting Soma and Agni wasn’t because of
Ciel, maybe it was because of Sebastian. If the demon saw how, or got an idea
of Sebastian caring for others, it wouldn’t be too hard to think that maybe he
or she saw an opportunity to hurt him by killing a human that he genuinely respected
as punishment for his actions or slights that they felt. Taking on the form of
Ciel would only magnify that feeling. And, again, if they can take any form,
what’s to stop a Demon from taking on the form of the Earl?
AX 2017 was such a blast! I got to meet so many great people who were filled with nothing but compliments and praise! Thank you to everyone who wanted a picture and to those that said I was even “cosplay goals”! You made the experience so much greater for me. I even got to meet two of my idols from The Corps Dance Crew! Blessed ❤
Kidnapping arc: You only read the story in the beginning. Sebastian is a Gary Stu, Ciel is a brat and the servants are annoying as hell and for some reason unreliable. As someone who cares about accuracy, the anachronism was absolutely ridiculous. You’ve most likely stopped following the series a long time ago.
Jack the Ripper arc: You took interest in Ciel Phantomhive and wanted to know more about his relatives and evil noblemen. His dynamics between Sebastian are interesting as they seem to be emotionally detached of each other despite being dependent on them.
Indian Butler arc: Soma and Agni are your favorite characters and the former’s character development is one of the best things that ever happen in this manga. You’re disappointed that this arc was never properly animated. Also, Sebastian is just one hell of a deer.
Circus arc: Gothic horror story absolutely appeals to you and this arc brings out the best of it, moreso than the last arc. Ciel’s decision to burn down Kelvin’s mansion with the children he was supposed to save was shocking, but it only made you love Ciel even more for the complexity of his character. You know he’s awful and he’s aware of it, but he’s just a human at the end with all his flaws. You probably became attached to the circus crew and found their deaths sad, but well deserved. Do I need to say how badass the servants were?
Murder arc: You like the historical and mystery aspect of Kuroshitsuji. Shorter arc is your cup of tea. Arthur Conan Doyle is probably your favorite character.
Luxury Liner arc: You enjoy fast-paced story to keep you engaged. Backstories, character development and plot twists are nicely packed in this arc. The tone is a bit lighter than before, but it doesn’t take away the serious aspect. You fell in love with Lizzy and the relationship between Ciel and Sebastian even more. “PHOENIX!!” is the best joke ever. You’re also most likely disappointed in the latest arcs and just hang around in the hope that something big will happen soon.
Public School arc: You have always been curious about education in Victorian England (and would like to see more handsome men because there is never enough of them). This arc is a nice break from the previous arcs that were plot-heavy. The cricket match was absolutely hilarious. The prefects and their fags are precious boys that need to be protected.
Green Witch arc: Sieglinde is your favorite character and you loved how much dedication Yana put for her character. She’s an adorable genius and you enjoy her interaction with other characters. The length and slow pace don’t bother you at all as you love Sieglinde with all your heart. You longed to see another glimpse to Ciel’s past and subconscious thoughts. The Shinigami reveal is one of the biggest plot twists yet and it adds more weight to Undertaker’s motives and grief at the end.
Blue Cult arc: You’re an avid 2CT fan and all that waiting for the reveal pays off in the end. You might have the patience of a saint for that reason too. That’s all I can say.
Every year, the OHC crew hands out roses for the audience to throw on stage after the Valentine’s Day special. Rather than throw them out, Julian collects the roses and walks around the city handing them out to people in need. Some call him ‘The Little Cupid’ as love seems to follow behind him. So far, Julian has unknowingly lead to the start of sixteen relationships, nine engagements, and four marriages.

It was the classic shebang, girl meets boy. Boy seems like a normal upstanding individual, girl goes along with it. Later boy turns out to be a psychopathic criminal and the girl goes along with it. You know, the usual.
Okay, so, maybe that’s a stretch. But hey! A chick is into what she’s into, right? Besides, who can turn down a man with a wicked sense of humor? Especially when he’s a ginger.
Jerome was always a good kid, if it wasn’t for his mother he could have been something better. That damned whore. Every time I would see him he’d have new marks, around his neck, black eyes, scratched cheek. You name it Jerome probably had that bruise many a time.
As for myself, my family had this annual outing to the circus. It was the only good memory I had and that’s mostly because I met Jerome there.
I was hidden in some far off corner in the circus. My dad had made me touch the snake woman’s Python even though he knew I had a killer fear of them. As soon as he let my wrist free from his grip, I went running for the hills.
He never chased after me, preferring to flirt with the snake lady in front of my mom. It wasn’t anything new.
I took in my new surroundings fearfully, whimpering noisily. My small refuge was a snack cart pressed close to the circus tent. I sat in the middle so that It would be easier to see what was happening on both openings.
As I surveyed the left opening, I felt a hand tap against my shoulder. “Are you lost?” He asked quietly, studying me with tired eyes.
“N-no,” I managed to break my whimpers enough to speak, “Please don’t take me back to my dad. He’ll hit me.”
The red headed boys eyes softened, while you certainly weren’t the first to say that and probably not the last, he couldn’t help but feel the need to cheer you up. “Why can’t Jesus play basketball?”
“I dunno,” you answered, confused by his random question.
“Because he’s nailed to a cross!” That set him off into a fit of giggles, you couldn’t help joining in. His laughter seemed to be contagious. “Names Jerome. What’s yours crybaby?”
“It’s YN,” you pouted at him, “Am not a crybaby! I’m five, totally not a baby at all.”
“Yup, such a big girl,” he mocked, pretending to wipe tears off of his face, “Come on, let’s go play something.”
You shifted uncomfortably, wiping the tears from your eyes, “What about the giant snake?”
“Mom’s snake won’t hurt ya. Now let’s go!” He took your hand and pulled you out of your hiding spot. “What to do…”
For the night, Jerome and you were partners in pranking crime. The night came to an end when the circus was basically empty and most of the crew was on the search for a five year old girl. One of the Grayson adults found you, taking you away from Jerome and back to your father.
Since that night we were best friends. Well the best you could be when you saw each other one week a year. Jerome quickly became your first crush, kiss, and so on. As you grew older the both of you managed to keep in touch through email.
Flash forward a couple of years and you had your own apartment. You vowed to get your own place as soon as had hit eighteen. Your father had been mentally and physically abusive and your mother was too far off to care about anything.
Honestly, it was one of the best freedoms you had. No more fighting just peace. Best of all, Jerome’s circus was going to hit Gotham again and you would get to see him soon.
The week seemed to drag on. Time always slowed when you were looking forward to something.
You checked your email the day before the circus was due to come.
From: Jerome Valeska
Subject: Don’t come
I’ve got something planned. Don’t come to see me. Give me your address and I’ll go see you.
You frowned at the email, but sent one back with your address. That was strange to say the least. Usually you opened an email up to a joke or a story about what he did or a prank he did. But this email, it sent some fear into your system. Maybe he didn’t want you anymore or he found someone?
That was it. You didn’t get any emails back and you definitely didn’t attempt to get a response back. You went about your normal schedule, a strange fear in your stomach all the while.
Two days passed this way and you were sick of it. He probably wasn’t going to come and just drop you. On the third at you wanted until twelve before giving up and going to bed.
You woke up, feeling as if someone were watching you. “Hello?” You asked the darkness, sleepily, despite everything horror movies taught. There was something familiar about the person with you.
The light was flicked on and illuminated the room. You were met with a familiar figure, “Jerome? That better not be blood.” Instant anger overcame you, “What did that bitch do to you?”
Grabbing a near by shirt, you went to clean the blood that seemed to come from his face and arms. “Wait,” you noticed there weren’t any cuts, “This isn’t your blood. What did you do Jerome?”
“Looks like I’ve got bad news for you, dollface,” he looked like he was crying, “She’s dead,” he started to laugh at the top of his lungs like it was the best joke of his life.
“Oh, har har har,” you rolled your eyes, “What is this? Fake blood?”
“Exactly that, it’s made with powdered sugar and cocoa. Here have a taste,” he ran a finger through the blood and stuck it in your mouth, “Delicious isn’t it?”
You spit it out as soon as the metallic taste hit. “Jerome, what the hell?” You shouted and pushed him away.
“You know I don’t lie, crybaby. The whore’s dead and I’m quitting the circus. Not this exact moment that would look too shady. Doll, you should have been there? ‘Jerome, no! What are you doing? I love you!’” He spoke, seeming to be confident about not being caught.
“What are you going to do? You killed someone, you’re covered in blood, and..you fucking broke into my apartment! Wh-”
He was right, besides if anyone could pull one over the cops it was him. “Okay, fine, you’re right. No reason at all to work.” You pressed chaste kiss to his lips, “Don’t do anything stupid. Go take a shower and get to bed.”
A smirk graced his lips, before he saluted you, “Yes ma'am!”
You stuck your tongue out at him before returning to bed. “Goodnight, killer!”

Summary: With the return of Jerome, it’s time for your boyfriend, Bruce, to finally hear about your past.
Author’s Note: This is going to be a 4 or 5 part story, and I hope I can do it justice! Please be patient with me! These are also all going to be a bit lengthier, but I will try my best to not make them insanely long! I also made Bruce and the reader college aged. Not too old though. Maybe 17 or 18? I figured it would make more sense this way.

4 years ago, you’re parents disappeared. They were times you heard them with people who were from the bad parts of town. You knew how bad the foster system would be, so you packed a backpack full of essentials and went on your own. It wasn’t until after you ran away that you found out just who your parents really were. They worked for one of the gang leaders in a city about an hour out from Gotham.
You didn’t really have any destination in mind. You just wandered for a while until you saw a flyer on a newsstand for Haly’s Circus. It was a traveling circus that was setting up for a weekend of shows at the local fairgrounds. You were able to crack into your parent’s lockbox and take some cash, so you weren’t worried about money yet. Why not go to the circus? Maybe it can be a movie moment where you actually run away with them.
OK! So, I finally got this done! Well, more like I kept going and here I am with another monster. sooooo enjoy?
This is for @thatonefromthatthing as my second place winner!! And it’s only the first part ^^; I overwrote once again and the second art will be out by the end of the month, if not early April. So the fluff isn’t over till this is done basically xD
Summary: Keith always wanted to join the circus - something that most kids wouldn’t dream of, but for him, it was all he thought about. Going to a circus when he was younger was his drive, but it hadn’t been any kind of circus. It had been the Legendary Voltron Circus. Now that he was out of the foster system, he set to finding it, tracking it down to a small town in the middle of nowhere. After one show, it was all it took to rekindle the flame inside of him and make him join. He accomplished his dream, but he hadn’t counted on falling for the acrobat in blue along the way.
Keith adjusted the strap on his bag and took the key from the hotel hostess. This was his third town in a month and after driving all day, he was exhausted. For the past few years now, he’s been skipping from one town to the next, looking for a place to belong. But when you have some crazy interests that no one really gets, it makes it hard. He was still going, though, so that counts.
He mumbled a quick thanks and headed off to his room.
To tell the truth, he was only in this town for one reason, and if it weren’t for that, he would have skipped his town entirely. There was something here that caught his interest.
The PBC board gave the crew ugly sweaters as a holiday gift. Pierre gave his to Julian because his was too small (He would not be caught dead in it). Julian cried as it was the first new piece of clothing he had gotten in years. The next day Julian woke up to find ‘santa’ brought him several sets of shirts, pants, and socks, as well as a cashmere scarf
I was wondering if Yana has given ages for the circus characters? I thought I remembered a post about it, but I can't seem to find it anywhere. Thank you for all the translations, your English is very good!
Yes, some of the characters’ ages were mentioned in the manga/anime:
Joker: 25 years old (ch35)
Beast: 24 years old (BoC ep9)
Snake: 18~19 years old (Yana’s twitter)
Doll: 15 years old (BoC bonus chapter)
As for the rest of the crew, their ages are uncertain afaik, but I guess Dagger is around 20-23 because he calls Beast “(big) sis” and Joker “senpai”. Peter and Wendy must be in their late 30s or older since they called Sebastian, who is supposed to look like an adult guy around 30, “little boy” (also, everyone of the circus crew, including 25-year-old Joker, calls them “big sis/big bro”).
