Some Kagami love for study de-stress. Slight MadaTobi. Kagami is 13-14 here.
When Madara and his apprentice finishes training late, it makes sense for him to offer Kagami dinner and the spare room. This happens the next day, and the next. Until it becomes more intuitive to poke his head into the spare room than send a messenger cat off when trying to find his wayward apprentice.
He knew Kagami stayed with his cousins – he had lost his parents a long time ago, and clan members are duty-bound to adopt orphaned children. Madara also knew that Kagami was cordial, at best, with his adopted family.
Not that there was any bad blood, no. It’s hard to find anyone that dislikes Kagami. It’s just what it is; duty. And duty can be done without any deeper ties.
Madara doesn’t mind. Kagami is talkative, cheerful and eager to please. The latter is what really appeals to Madara. After years of Izuna’s affectionate insubordinance, a puppy kind of obedience makes him want to cackle with glee.
Even Izuna is happy to allow Kagami to slip into their tight knitted circle. Without hesitation, Izuna slid into the role of older-brother with an ebullience that surprises Madara.
A small part of Madara acknowledges that it’s probably because Izuna’s never had a chance to be a big brother to their own little brothers. It’s clear that Izuna enjoys making up for lost time.
Kagami is chūnin now; he works at the Police Station under Madara to clock in his community service hours, before finding Tobirama and helping him with his new band of genin. Then he usually meets up with Madara again, and they train together before crashing back home. It’s more efficient this way.
So he doesn’t really notice when extra clothes began accumulating in one of his guest rooms. Then books, and weapons. He doesn’t notice the extra pair of house slippers until he trips on them. And when he does trip over them, Madara only blinks his bleary eyes for a second, before barking at Kagami to put them at their proper place when he’s not using them.
He does notice that Kagami likes to hang out in the same room as Izuna and Madara. All three of them would do completely different things, but it never felt intrusive.
For someone who is lauded to be one of the most proficient users of the Sharingan, Madara can be pretty unobservant
There’s their household chore wheel. Normally divided in half, it disappeared one day, only to reappear divided into thirds with a new name written on it. It was also decorated with cat stickers in its new reincarnated form.
There’s his tendency to accept anything Kagami tries to hand him without looking.
One time, Kagami handed him a form instead of a police report.
“Sign, please? I want to open my own private bank account,” inform Kagami. “I’m technically still a child, since I’m under sixteen, so I need a supervisor’s signature.”
Sounds reasonable to Madara. He didn’t even blink twice before he signed the form for him.
If Madara had to peg the moment he started noticing, it would be when he realised that his lunch was edible. Actually, it was more than that. It was delicious.
“Huh.” Madara chews on his onigiri, pleasantly surprised. He offered some to Tobirama, who’s going through his own stack of papers across the expansive desk from him, to see if his tongue is playing tricks with him. Tobirama hums, and said it’s a lot better than what he usually packs.
Which is true. As siblings, Madara and Izuna can act as a study of opposites. Madara often gets impatient and under-seasons his food. Izuna tends to get bored and starts experimenting.
No one comes out at the end of their lunch break a winner.
Then there’s the hospital incident, where Kagam broke arm badly and needed a cast on top of chakra healing. He couldn’t check out without his guardian filling in his discharge form, so a messenger was sent to Madara’s office.
When the receptionist told Madara this, he is absolutely baffled. “Guardian, as in parental guardian?” asks Madara.
“Yes, Uchiha-sama,” the receptionist replies. “He’s jotted you down as his parental guardian.”
“Huh.” Madara takes a moment for the news to register. Then he signs the discharge forms, before entering the room where Kagami sits to sort it all out.
As soon as he steps inside, Madara asks, “Do you want to be formally adopted into our family?”
“Yes!” Kagami blurts out, then flushes. “Ah, was that too desperate? I mean, yes, Shishou.” Kagami coughs and sits up straighter. “I’d very much like that.”
And it turns out, Kagami carries spare adoption papers in his flak jacket. Madara can’t help it. He chuckles before ruffling the boy’s already messy hair. “Don’t tell Izuna this,” Madara teases, “but you’re already my favourite.”
Izuna is lured in the kitchen by the delicious smell wafting from their wok. There Madara stands beside Kagami, Madara stirring the wok with his chopsticks while Kagami beside him throws in a handful of spices into the pan.
“Ooh,” Izuna sings. “That smells delicious! What’s the special occasion?”
Kagami turns around grinning. “I’m officially adopted into the family!”
Both of Izuna’s eyebrows rises up to his hairline. “You mean you weren’t before?”
“Nope,” confirms Kagami exuberantly.
Izuna laughs. “Really, brother? You adopt a stray kid by bringing him home, and you don’t even notice it until – when was it? I completely forgot. Kagami-chan, how long has it been now?”
Madara grimaces. “Hush, you two. I’ve been busy, okay. And don’t look at me like that, Kagami.“
“Like what, Shishou?”
“Like there are stars trying to burst out of your eyes.” Madara narrows his eyes at him. “Like I’m your hero.”
“But you are my hero, my idol, my role model” defends Kagami. “Sensei told me it’s good to have a role model – and you’re everything I aspire to be in life. You’re even dating sensei!”
“What?” asks Madara.
“What?” asks Kagami, all doe eyes and innocence.
“Holy shit,” Madara mouths without sound.
“Rude. I am right here, you know,” Izuna reminds them. He levels a chopstick towards Kagami. “I’m much better role model material. Brother only wishes to be half as charismatic as I am, and it wouldn’t have taken me a gazillion years to notice that I’ve been dating Tobirama for these past couple of weeks.”
Madara is mumbling quietly. “All those times we had dinner, and lunch, and the walks, and after work drinks – Tobirama and I have been dating and I haven’t noticed? How am I still alive? How has Tobirama not killed me yet?”
Helpful as ever, Kagami is elated to answer. “Oh! There’s a betting pool as to how long it’ll take you to realise and sensei himself even has money for – uh, I mean–” Kagami cuts off abruptly at Izuna’s rapid throat cutting motions, “–oh no! I think our stir fry’s burning! Better stir it very vigorously, Shishou–”
Madara flicks Kagami on the back of his head, because his apprentice is as transparent as glass. Izuna snickers madly while Kagami squawks. “Nice try. Izuna, you are such a bad influence. And you, Kagami, you’re telling me all about this betting pool after we finish. And Tobirama’s too old for you. Find someone younger to crush on.”
Kagami pokes his tongue out at him, and Madara rolls his eyes.
Now that he notices how easily Kagami fits into his family, he can’t help but smile. He could get used to this.
In the search for rogue planets and failed stars astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have created a new mosaic image of the Orion Nebula. During their survey of the famous star formation region, they found what may be the missing piece of a cosmic puzzle; the third, long-lost member of a star system that had broken apart.
The Orion Nebula is the closest star formation region to Earth, only 1400 light-years away. It is a turbulent place – stars are being born, planetary systems are forming and the radiation unleashed by young massive stars is carving cavities in the nebula and disrupting the growth of smaller, nearby stars.
The prompt I had was: Prompt 49: Haymitch has died and Katniss and Peeta , who are just acquaintances, have to drive across the country together to take his ashes to where he wanted them scattered. Haymitch may appear at times during the journey in spirit form. [submitted by Anonymous]
As I started to write I found this was going to take a lot longer than I thought to do the prompt justice. Here is part one, I will have 2-3 more, but never fear I have it all mapped out and I am going to actually have time to work on it so you shouldn’t have to wait too long.
Summary: Katniss just lost the last family member she had left, and now he is sending her on a journey to discover her past. To top he asked she take his handsome neighbor, Peeta, with her. Along the way they both find out they must face their past to have a future.
markson are the head of the choi youngjae protection squad tbh (ilysm!!!)
It’s honestly so true! The way they jumped to Youngjae’s defense over Bambam’s teasing was just so important and precious, and it makes me feel so warm inside to see them looking out for him and protecting him so much! They always have such a habit of looking out of him, and protecting him, and making him happy anyway, and they’re just so supportive and encouraging and adoring of him and everything that he does that it’s honestly beautiful!
and showing their love for him (even when he’s not there)…
Markson really are such champions at taking care of our Sunshine and protecting and supporting him against all the evils of the world like cucumbers… most of the time, haha! They really are amazing leaders in the Choi Youngjae Protection Squad!!!
To me the biggest slytherin trait Harry has is ambition, and he has it in bucketfuls! He wanted to be a singer and he made that happen! Most famous boybander on the planet! Then he decided to focus on being an actor, and you know what? His first role is in a frickin Nolan film. He goes big because he wants it. And I know no one ever wants to say it but to get to Harry’s position I feel like there had to be an element of cunningness. You don’t just become the long lost Azoff family member by accident (this is also where the resourcefulness comes in). You can’t tell me he didn’t meet the Azoffs and see the golden opportunity that had presented itself. Also a trait that is never really talked about in slytherins is the utter loyalty to those they consider family, which Harry has; to both his real family and his 1D family. One of the reasons I believe Harry disliked Zayn after he left is because he did just that! He left the brotherhood. Bitch betrayed them all.

There’s a quiet lulling to the world dipped in blue he found himself padding along in, cream colored sandals following closely behind another pair along the normally white boardwalk, now dyed a soft baby blue by the dulled evening. The ocean is but a faint strip of navy painted above the sandy shoreline, and teasing currents of humid air brush against his loose t-shirt, as if teasingly tugging at it and pulling him a little more forward, a little nearer to the girl in front of him.
He tries his best to fight them, shaking the clumps of chocolate brown hair that intrude his view and cling onto his face aside with a furrow of his brows and keeping his pace steady, following each space between the perfectly fitted boards. There’s something in him, however, that feels a little different - maybe it’s because the noisy chirping of those crickets he tried to imitate earlier made her laugh a little and shake her head at his nonsense. He wants her to turn back around again, to give him that tiny quirk of her pretty lips and let him see how her eyes glow in the dim atmosphere like the fireflies that were beginning to awake, one by one.
It’s that dumb feeling again, the one where he can’t seem to stop looking at her back like a lovesick puppy because he’s too afraid to do so when her eyes meet his.
A/N: Well I mentioned that I’ve written some stuff for an AU I spoke of the other day (about a five-year-old Mabel being an only survivor in an accident with her parents and Dipper, and Stan taking her in). At this point I think I’ve decided to call this the (Grunkle) Guardian AU (with or without the grunkle part I can’t decide asfds). But, anyways - I decided to add-on and polish up one of my little drabbles I wrote over the AU. :’)
Characters: Mabel Pines, Stanley Pines
Word Count: 734
Summary: After Mabel wakes up suddenly from a nightmare, she approaches and wakes up a sleepy and grumpy Grunkle Stan. Some interaction/fluff ensues.
Suddenly, Stan found himself waking up to the soft calls of
“…Great Uncle Stan?” Mabel whispered with concern as she lightly shook
He groaned, slowly rolling over onto his back. He turned his head to face his
grandniece with weary eyes.
Character A is a bit of a criminal, in both their eyes and the eyes of the police. They take pride in the work they do as it’s all they’ve ever known, but through a few hiccups on their part, they accidentally leave their DNA at the scene of their most recent crime. The police are thrilled to have found those few drops of blood on the ground but are stunned when forensic analysis proves that Character A is a member of the long-lost royal bloodline.

Please, let me know what you think :) Enjoy !
(Taking place in 2x19)
Elijah is back, Bonnie is still alive.
You woke up feeling terrible. You stayed in bed for a while, thinking about Bonnie. You’d been struggling with everything lately but this time you knew what you had to do. You weren’t confused anymore.
You got out of your bed, took a shower and left for Elena’s house without even eating breakfast.
You pulled over in front of the house and that’s when you saw him at the front door. You got out of your car and rushed over the entry.
The vampire turns around, surprised to see you. He looks terrible. His suit looked like it had been set on fire and he was covered in dirt.
“What are you doing here Y/N?” Elena ask in a whisper.
You frown. She signs to make very little noise, you figure it’s because nor Stefan nor Damon knew what she had done.
"I’ve been struggling about the fact that Elijah was laying dead in your basement for a while but now that Bonnie is dead, and I am pretty sure that if you hadn’t killed Elijah that wouldn’t have happened, I came to take the dagger out but, it looks like you beat me to it.“ You say looking at her. You weren’t angry. You were just determined.
You see the dagger in Elijah’s hand.
"Are you okay?” You look up at him with a worried look “You look awful… What did you do to him?” The last question was meant for Elena, though you were pretty sure she wasn’t the one who had tried to set him on fire.
“Not here.” Elena says before stepping out. She closes the door without making any noise.
“Can you drive us?” She asks you.
You nod yes.
You looked up at Elijah who was looking at you. You give a look that showed him you were worried and sorry. You all get in your car, Elijah in the passenger seat. You start the car and start driving away.
Elena gives blood bags to Elijah who was still looking at you. You tried not to blush but you failed. Elijah starts drinking the blood and when you pull over 10 minutes later he looked a little better.
“You look better.” You tell him after stopping the car.
He looks at you for a moment before turning towards Elena. “Where did you get the dagger?” He asks.
“I’ll tell you everything, but we have to work together, Elijah, I need your word”
At this point you didn’t really cared what would happen.
"Your ability to make demands has long passed"
“No demands” she says.
“I’m offering you my help, and in return I want yours.”
"And why should I even consider this?“
"The same reason that you haven’t killed me. You need my help to kill Klaus and I need you.”
Elena’s phone starts buzzing. She picks up, you figure it’s Stefan. “Yes, I’m fine"
Elijah has turn his attention back to you.
"I’m really sorry” you apologize
“What are you sorry about?” He asks “Were you part of the plan to kill me?”
You shake your head no but you were feeling ashamed you didn’t help him earlier.
“Then you have nothing to be sorry about” he says.
You look up at him but his attention was back on Elena.
“No, Stefan. Elijah and I need some time alone. And Y/N is with me.” - “Elijah is a noble man, Stefan” she says, looking at the Original vampire but he was looking at you once again. You were looking at Elena and you were pretty sure you were blushing again. "I can trust him. He knows that I’d be incredibly stupid to betray him again. By removing the dagger I have proven myself. Make sure that Damon doesn’t do anything stupid. I’ll be in touch"
Elijah takes Elena’s phone from her.
“He’s here” Elena says.
“Klaus is here? Is he the one who killed you witch friend?” He asks looking at you.
You opened your mouth to answer when Elena spoke up.
“Bonnie’s alive” she says
“What?!” You say very loudly
"We had to convince Klaus that she was dead.“
You don’t say a thing, trying to let go of the anger that was taking over you. You take a deep breath, trying to stay calm.
"He’s taken over Alaric’s body.” She continues like your feelings don’t matter.
"Of course he has. One of his favorite tricks.“
"Well, what are his other tricks ?” Elena asks next. “What is he gonna do next? You’re the only one who knows him."
"Yes, I do” he says, staring at nothing. He sighs “I need a change of clothing” he states.
“My stepfather has some fancy suits you can borrow” you say.
“If it isn’t too much trouble.”
You don’t answer, feeling numb. Bonnie was alive. This was such a relief. You start the car and drive away.
The three of you sat down in your living room after Elijah had changed his clothes. The suit wasn’t fitting perfectly but it would do fine.
“You have a lovely home” Elijah says, looking around.
You’re home was much like the Gilbert’s. It was a bit, too big for just your stepfather and yourself but you weren’t complaining.
“Thank you” you answer timidly.
“So I assume that the Martin witches are no longer with us?"
"No, I’m sorry” Elena says
“And Katerina? She would have been released from my compulsion when I died"
"She was” you say.
“Klaus took her” Elena completes your answer.
That was news to you.
“We think that she might be dead”
Elijah grins “I doubt that. Not Klaus’s style. Death would be too easy for her after what she did."
"I don’t understand. You say that you want Klaus dead but you still made Katherine pay for betraying him."
"I have my own reasons for wanting Katerina to pay… There was a time, I would’ve done anything for Klaus. Klaus is my brother"
You were shocked. As was Elena.
"Klaus is my brother"
"Yes I heard I’m… Processing” she says
“Yes, I’m a little behind on the times but I believe the term you’re searching for is OMG"
This makes you laugh. Yes, that was definitely the term.
Elijah moves his head to look at you, hearing you laugh.
"There’s a whole family of Originals?” Elena asks.
Elijah turns his attention back to the Gilbert girl
“My father was a wealthy landowner in a village in Eastern Europe, our mother bore seven children.”
You listen to him closely.
“So your parents were human?” Elena asks
“Our whole family was. Our origins as vampires is a very long story. Just know, we’re the oldest vampires in the world. We are the Originals family and from us, all vampire were created."
Elena is confused and so are you "Right, but Klaus is your brother. And you want him dead?"
"I need some air, I’m still feeling a tad… Dead. Come."
You appreciate his sense of humor and smile at his comment.
You follow him outside.
"So as you’ve seen, nothing can kill an Original. Not sun, not fire, not even a werewolf bite. Only the wood from one tree. A tree my family made sure burned."
"That’s where the white ash for the dagger comes from” you say.
“Yes. The witches won’t allow anything truly immortal to walk the Earth. Every creature needs to have a weakness in order to maintain balance."
"So if the sun can’t kill an Original… Why is Klaus so obsessed with breaking the Sun and the Moon curse."
"Right. The Curse of the Sun and the Moon."
You stop and Elijah notices it, stopping to look at you.
"It’s fake.” You say.
Elijah raises an eyebrow.
“Just the name of the curse sounds… Ridiculous… It’s a fake, isn’t it?” You ask him
He grins “Alaric was right. You are one brilliant young woman."
You shrug and smile "I try"
"It does sound a bit… Biblical doesn’t it?"
"But why?” Elena ask
“The easiest way to discover the existence of a doppelgänger or to get your hands on some long-lost moonstone is to have every single member of two warring species on the lookout for it."
"That’s really smart” you say, you didn’t realize you were saying it out loud.
"Klaus and I faked the Sun and the Moon Curse dating back over a thousand years.“
"But if there is no curse…” Elena starts to say but he cuts her off
“There is a curse. Just not that one. The real one is much worse. It’s a curse placed on Klaus."
"What are you talking about” Elena was getting impatient.
“Klaus has been trying to break it the last thousand years and you are his only hope."
"Well… What is this curse?” She finally asks.
Elijah gets annoyed “Your phone will not stop its incessant buzzing. Answer it please.” He hands her phone back to her.
It was Stefan. Something bad had happened.
“What’s going on?” You ask her
“Klaus went after Jenna. I have to go to her.”
“I’m afraid that wasn’t part of today’s arrangement."
"She’s my family, Elijah, I have to ! I’ll be back” he stares at her “you have my word"
"That does mean anything to me until you live up to it”
She thanks him and goes away.
“Looks like it’s just you and I now” he smiles down at you.
"She’ll be back" you assure him.
“We’ll see…” “It seems you have find a friend in Elena after all…"
You look away and sigh. "Not really… Bonnie kept involving me and I had to meet Elena at some point. They’re best friends…”
You take a deep breath. Bonnie was alive and no one told you. If you had feelings, you would be angry right now. You would be feeling left out. You wondered where she was and if she was safe.
“What are you thinking about?” He asks, looking at the sky.
You sigh. “Bonnie…"
He sits down on a bench near the water. You’re hesitant at first but you finally decide to go sit next to him.
“Did it hurt?” You ask
“Excuse me?” He doesn’t understand the question.
“The dagger… Dying… Did it hurt?”
He looks at you, curious. Then he looks up at the sky. What was so interesting about today’s sky?
You stay silent for a while.
“Can you feel anything? When you’re… Dead” you shake your head and feel really stupid at this moment.
“No. It only hurts when I get stabbed and when I come back.” He says
“I’m sorry…” You say
“I told you had nothing to be sorry about."
You sigh. "When I heard you were dead I didn’t know what to think. My life is so confusing since the day I met you, I can’t figure out what’s right and what’s wrong.”
You don’t know why you’re telling him all this. You feel his eyes on you. You both stay quiet for a while before he breaks the silence.
“Where are you parents?”
The question surprises you.
“My parents? Why?”
“It’s pure curiosity. You are very interesting for a human, no offense"
You laugh and shake your head. "Are you kidding? You’re over a thousand years old! Compare to you I’m nothing, my life is not interesting at all, I’m afraid I’ll just bore you"
"I doubt that is true.” He says.
You lock your eyes with his for you don’t know how long before you start staring down at your feet again.
“My mother died 2 years ago. Cancer” you say.
He stays silent for a minute. “And your father?” You look up at him.
“My father is in jail” you say.
This surprises him.
"What did he do to end up there, may I ask"
You look up at him again before deciding that the grass was more interesting than his eyes,
“My stepfather’s a business man. He married my mother when I was 13"
He doesn’t push, doesn’t ask again.
"Is Elena gonna die?” You ask him.
"Probably, yes.“ "Does that bother you?"
You frown. Of course it does!
"Doesn’t it bother you?” You ask him.
He looks at you with wild eyes, dazzled.
"You are not afraid of me…“ That’s more of a statement than a question.
"Should I be?”
He shakes his head no.
“You said you came to resurrect me. What were you expecting me to do?"
"I wasn’t expecting anything. I told you I have been confused for a while. I considered pulling the dagger out everyday since I had learnt of your condition but I don’t think I would’ve been able to snick in a house where two vampires with super hearing lived without being discovered. Bonnie was dead and I didn’t think she was coming back. It wasn’t fair for you to stay dead. It was rather selfish really, you never did me any wrong but Damon would have been really pissed at me… Elena wants your help. If she didn’t need it you’d still be dead. I don’t want anything from you, I just wanted you to live…"
He’s astonished by your statement. You just wanted to help him out of the goodness of your heart.
"You are a very interesting person Miss Y/LN” he says before standing up. “Let’s go back inside shall we?"
It was getting dark when Elena joined you back at your home.
"Tell me” is the first thing she says, “what is Klaus’s curse”
She looked angry and impatient.
"Please" he ask her to seat with a movement of hand.
“You know my family was quite close. But Klaus and my father did not get on too well. When we became vampires, we discovered the truth. Klaus was not my father’s son. My mother had been unfaithful many years before. This was her darkest secret. Klaus was from a different bloodline. Of course when my father discovered this he hunted down and he killed my mother’s lover and his entire family."
Your eyes grew bigger, that was a horror story!
"Not realizing, of course, that he was igniting a war between species that rages until this day"
That’s when you understand "Klaus biological’ father was a werewolf…” You say
"What does that make Klaus? A werewolf or a vampire ?” Elena asks.
“He’s both. A hybrid will be deadlier than any werewolf or vampire. Nature would not stand for such an imbalance of power. Therefore the witches, the servants of nature, saw to it that my brother’s werewolf side would become dormant."
You were astounded by this statement.
"That’s the curse Klaus wants to break?"
"He wants to trigger that part of him that’s werewolf. If allowed, Klaus would side his own bloodline. He’d build his own race, endangering not just vampires but everyone."
"But you helped him"
"I helped him because I loved him. That’s change now. He must die"
You look up at him with sad eyes.
"We have the dagger now, we can stop him.
"When a werewolf is wounded by silver it heals. An Original can’t be killed by anything but white oak ash on a silver dagger. The dagger does not work."
"What are you saying, that Klaus can’t be killed?"
"There’s one way to kill any supernatural species. At the hands of the servants of the nature themselves."
"A witch. If they can channel that much power.”
Elena sighs. “But it would kill them"
"The curse must be broken during the full moon when Klaus is in transition. That’s when he’ll be at his most vulnerable. A witch with enough power can kill Klaus."
"Bonnie can channel that much power” Elena informs Elijah.
“Then I must tell you something. I know a way you can survive the ritual.”
“You found a way?"
"Yes, Elena, I did. Unfortunately, Katerina took matter into her own hands but you know that already…"
"You cared about her, didn’t you?” You say, standing up.
He turns towards you and his eyes fall into yours
“It’s a common mistake, I’m told”, he keeps silent, looking down at you, but then he looks away, “it’s one I won’t make again” and then he leaves your house followed by Elena.
She texts you an hour later, telling you that she and Elijah had renewed their deal. Bonnie and she would be safe. You only reply to tell Bonnie you’re glad she’s alive. Today had been interesting and very intense. Bonnie wasn’t dead, Elijah was back, you know the truth about the curse and a very good plan had been set in motion to kill Klaus without killing Elena and Bonnie. This day was ending better than the last.
I AM SO HAPPY RN!! the Rivamika ship isn't necessarily sailing but it iSNT SINKING EITHER (as of right now) haters can kissssss me sweet ass if they try to bring up the "iTs InCEsT" bs
I’m very glad Isayama decided to clarify that. I always knew they weren’t closely related due to the fact that they were both an only child, so they couldn’t have been uncle/niece like so many believed, or siblings. Plus, the way grandpa Ackerman spoke of them as a branched off family made it even more obvious they weren’t close, but at least we have proof for the people who aren’t easily persuaded.
I do find it curious how Isayama made sure to confirm they were very distantly related though. If he wanted to, he could have made it so Mikasa’s father, Kenny and Kuchel were all siblings, or had him directly linked in some way to grandpa Ackerman or something, but he decided to split the line generations earlier. It’s actually very likely they’re even further apart than 3rd cousins like many of us assumed. Really, I think the Ackerman power is the only important part here so Isayama probably didn’t want to pull the “Oho I’m your long lost brother” trope. Or he wants the last remaining members of a near-extinct bloodline to repopulate the world with Ackerman’s and that’s why he made sure they were distantly related. Pretty convenient how there’s only one man and one woman remaining too when you think about it. HMMM.
more cracky Double Agent Anakin ideas: So he survives, Palapatine is dead. The Alliance is closer to re-establishing the Republic than it's ever been. So there are a bunch of meetings and comities on the actual nuts and bolts of transitioning from the Empire back to a republic. And a certain someone suggested they include the newly revealed double agent Anakin Skywalker. (part 1/?)
(2/2) Reasons given to Mon Mothma: a/ After 20+ years as the emperor’s
right hand he’s got an unique insight into the Empire’s inner structure.
b/ He’s been going stir crazy in the med center and could use a
non-taxing job to do. c/ He’s actually got a good analytical mind, just
look at his newly declassified reports. Reason Leia gives Anakin as
she’s dragging his hoverchair to the first meeting against his vehement
protests: If *I* have to suffer through them so do you.
Anakin grumbles about it but eventually gives in. He figures it’s his penance. Somewhere in the Force, Padme is cackling with laughter.
But actually he’s kind of glad to be involved. It’s tedious, but it gives him something to do (plus bonding time with the kids over creating a new government!). And he can tell them which of the Imperials - particularly military personnel - they might want to keep around, and which shouldn’t be trusted under any circumstances. And he has a little too much fun intimidating the politicians who were nowhere to be seen during the days of rebellion, but who suddenly come out of the woodwork now that they might be able to claim a position in the new government.
Inevitably someone will try to convince him to run for political office. Leia and Luke think this is hilarious. Anakin is horrified. All the more so when his continual public refusals apparently just up the speculation in the media.
People try to get Leia and Luke to run, too, but Leia says she’s already the Queen of Alderaan and her people need her - she doesn’t want to take on another office. And Luke is just as adamant as his father.
Of course, that doesn’t stop the media from harping on it. Or from trying to catch one of the Skywalkers endorsing one candidate or another. Or from coming up with all kinds of wild stories about who else might be a long-lost member of their estranged family.
Leia jokingly says Anakin should write a tell-all book: he’d be set for life. Anakin glares at her but she isn’t phased. She just grins and says, “Your death glare is a lot less effective without the mask.”
So I was reading through your my hero saiki stuff again and what about a combination of long lost family member and appears during a fight? 7 years later Midoriya's long lost bro shows up during the USJ fight.
a fantastic idea, and even better if i could bring saiki’s brother along for the ride without him and saiki both promptly ruining the whole thing
izuku would be so upset, though, and i’m fairly sure that as soon as saiki hears izuku thinking oh no saiki can’t be with the villains he CAN’T be saiki would probably figure it out and go talk to izuku. thus avoiding the entire “saiki is one of the villain alliance” misunderstanding.
Imagine #2 (Requested) - You're My Forever (Tyler Seguin)
Everyone was shocked. I was heartbroken. We all thought the Stars would win the Stanley Cup this year. Not only did the lose the Stanley Cup, but they didn’t even make it through round two of the playoffs, which was shocking. Everyone in Dallas was dealing with the loss, but I felt like it was hitting me harder, because my boyfriend is Tyler Seguin.
I paced back and forth in our shared apartment waiting for him to return. Once I heard the front door open, I darted to the kitchen to make it look like I wasn’t just standing there waiting for him. He walked Into the kitchen and stared at me with tired, sad eyes. “I’m so sorry babe”, I tried. “You all did so well. You especially.” He came around the island and pulled me in for a hug. “Thanks Y/N”, he began softly. “I think I’m going to spend a few days with my mom and sister just to clear my head. I know you have a huge meeting at work, so don’t feel obligated to come. I’ll understand.”
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to join him. My finance firm was just getting off the ground and I had a meeting scheduled with a huge potential client. I couldn’t just cancel, even though he needed me. I was so torn. I watched him pack his bags and then pull out of the driveway and head to the airport. That might have hurt me worse than watching the Stars lose. My baby, my everything needed me, and I couldn’t be there for him.
*one week later*
It’s been exactly 7 days and I haven’t heard from Tyler. He turned his phone off. I completely understand that he wanted to escape, I just miss hearing his voice. Not hearing those random “I love you’s” throughout the day made me sad. I was able to close the deal with that client, and all I wanted was to tell Tyler about it. As I sat down on our bed to write out the text to him, I heard the door unlock.
“Babe, come here please!” He yelled from the entry way of the apartment. Excited to see him, I jumped up and made my way to him. Without even a “hello”, he took me by the waist and pressed me up against the wall. He was kissing me so passionately, making every part of my body tingle. I missed our moments like this.
He paused after several minutes of intimate kisses and said, “marry me. I promise, I’ll give you whatever diamond you want and a real proposal, but please baby, tell me you’ll marry me.” He pulled back and our eyes met. “Please baby. I need you.” He pleaded.
“Tyler, of course I’ll marry you. But where is this coming from?” I asked, confused.
I didn’t get an answer. Instead, he picked me up and carried me to our bed. After slowly placing me on the bed, he began tearing at my clothes and going in for soft, warm kisses on my neck. I aggressively returned the favor, ripping off his shirt and straddling him. I could feel his arousal through his thin basketball shorts, and decided to take matters into my own hands. I had left him hanging so bad recently, I owed him this much.
I gently pulled his shorts and boxers down just enough to release his erection. Our mouths never lost contact, and I began to slide down his long, hard member. Making him moan, I continued with the vertical movements until we both released the sexual frustration we had built up over the last week. I rolled off of him, and he then he started explaining.
“You’re my forever. Not hockey. Hockey is great, it will financially support us for the a long while, but it won’t always be there for me. I can’t make my body work like that forever, but I can love you forever. I know my schedule is crazy busy and it seems to have hurt our relationship from time to time, but please.” He paused, looking like he might crazy. “Please baby. Let me show you I can be the man you need me to be forever. I can’t lose you… I need you. And I am so madly in love with you.”
“I love you too, babe. I’ll love you forever.” I answered.

want Natsu to want to love Zeref. To
be really conflicted and tortured by the fact that he has a brother which should be WONDERFUL but isn’t. I want Natsu to want to be happy about the discovery, to wish he could indulge in the sheer joy that should come with
discovering a long lost family member. (Remembering that it would also be really confusing. Zeref’s just this
random guy suddenly calling himself family)
But the concept of a brother. I
think that should make Natsu reel. He’s a pretty basic person, likes to jump
cleanly from A to B. (Example: Lucy trusts Brandish = so does Natsu). To him,
I’m sure ‘brother’ has always meant ‘someone you love’. Simple as
that. So I want Natsu to be furious with Zeref, incensed by his betrayal and
enraged at the unfairness of it all…but also to crave to love him
unconditionally. And in the end he’s just totally confused. There’s a paradox
for Natsu in that Zeref’s actions are unforgivable, but he’s family.
