I’ve been waiting for this word to be mentioned in the manga for years.

And it finally happened today.

I’m speechless with emotion.

  • *joseph and robert volunteering at a daycare*
  • child 1: ... mr. joseph?
  • joseph: yes?
  • child 1: *tearing up* are you and mr. robert fighting?
  • joseph: aw... no, sweetie... we're not. we're just trying to figure something out...
  • child 1: are you sure? it sounds like you're fighting with your husband-
  • child 2: are you and mr. robert going to get a divorce now?!
  • child 1: A DIVORCE?
  • joseph: ah, no, no, no. again, we're not married...
  • child 1: *starts crying* so you already got a divorce?
  • joseph: oh, jeez...
  • child 2: but we like mr. robert!
  • child 3: you can't divorce mr. robert!
  • child 1: you have to stay for the children!
  • child 4: what's a divorce?
  • child 3: not you too!
  • *all the children crying at the same time*
  • joseph: no, please, don't cry... rob, a little help?
  • robert: *recording scene* this is too entertaining.

‘Hey, hey look at me. Why is this bothering you? Its never bothered you before.’
Yeah Noct, the problem is when you were having a giggle at the tabloids before
Prompto hadnt realised how he felt about you
‘They shouldnt be making insinuations like that about you.’
The headline being 'The Prince and the Pauper’
And Nocts like 'I should be so lucky, Prom you’re awesome. They’re missing out’

Proms like 'Noct buddy, this is the kind of thing that starts those headlines…’
'I don’t care Prompto, talk to me’

today on overthinking the trading card anime

So the whole Kaiba-calling-Joey-a-dog thing is pretty infamous, to the point that it’s the source of their ship name. And the dub may have played it up a little, but it’s still definitely a thing in the original.

Which is why it’s notable that in the subs, there’s one other time that Kaiba brings up dogs:

When he’s talking about himself in relation to Gozaburo.

And we get the same connection in the manga, too, with this panel of Gozaburo (literally or metaphorically? it’s all in Mokuba’s head, so it’s a little hard to tell) forcing a young Seto to wear a dog collar.

There’s definitely some interesting stuff we could take from this. We could be dealing with an example of the classic “abused kid becomes a bully by turning their abuser’s tactics on other people” (and if we take some of the stuff Kaiba says to Joey as paraphrased versions of things Gozaburo said to mini!Seto…ouch). But it’s also interesting to look at in the context of Joey and Kaiba as foils.

  • their families keep trying to get crown prince victor and prince yuuri to meet but they both keep ditching their royal duties to meet with each other under false identities 
  • they fall in love but hold back their feelings because ‘how would my family react to me marrying a commoner oh no bwah’ or something
  • except victor can’t take it anymore, he never follows the rules anyway, what’s breaking another one
  • “where are you taking me?” yuuri asks.
    victor tightens his grip on his hand and doesn’t answer, pulls him along until he enters the throne room where his parents are entertaining some foreign officials.
    “papa, mama. i am in love with this man.” when they open their mouths to speak, he holds up a hand. “buh-buh-buh. hold on. let me finish. i know you’ve been trying to set me up with someone else.” he waves a hand at the visitors. “this is probably another one of your attempts. but i’ve made up my mind. i want to marry him.” he holds up the hand that’s holding yuuri’s and gives a brilliant smile.
  • no one speaks. for like. a solid two minutes. 
  • then yuuri hisses, “marry me?” at the same time victor’s dad lets out a hearty laugh and says, “well i see you’ve met prince yuuri.” 
  • “what,” victor says. 
    “you want to marry me?” yuuri is still saying. 
    victor turns around. “you’re a prince?” 
    yuuri huffs. “well you didn’t tell me you’re a prince. and you can’t just say you want to marry me in front of your parents. in front of my parents.”
  • oh. victor takes another look at the visitors. it turns out they’re actually the imperial family from japan.
  • “yuuri—” victor starts.
    “no, no, no.” yuuri has had enough. “i need to just. come out and say it. because i’ve had enough. and also mari snuck me a few sips from the engraved flask she was gifted from duke kenjirou’s older cousin but! the point. the point is. you can’t tell me who to marry.” he points at his parents. “you can’t tell me who to marry.” he points at victor. 
    victor’s face falls. “does that mean you don’t want to marry me?”
    “no, but—”
    “say no more.” victor smushes a bejeweled thumb against yuuri’s lips. “that’s all i need.” 
  • a series of extravagant courting gestures ensues to the point that the people of each kingdom plus a circle of international royal families are in on a betting pool for when the wedding will finally happen 
    • because whenever yuuri finally gives in, victor suddenly has his own conditions, and then when those are met, yuuri presents a new set of obstacles again and this all literally goes down in each of their countries’ textbooks as the Great Expectations (charles dickens who??) 

Final Fantasy XV - Cuddling

Prompto’s boots echoed loudly as he walked into Noctis’ apartment. He’d been given a key, but he’d still knocked three times, only entering upon receiving no confirmation that the apartment’s lethargic inhabitant was still alive.

“Noct!” he called, finally managing to undo the knots he’d tied to keep his slightly-too-small feet in his shoes. 

Again, he was met with silence. Laughing under his breath, the gunner quickly stole through the mess to the bedroom, wherein he found the owner submerged in layer, upon layer, of blankets.

Shaking the soft pile, Prompto called out again, “Noct. Noctis. Wake up, or Iggy is going to kill us both.”

He would deny to his dying day the high shriek he let out when the blanket mountain moved, the boy under it finally gracing the residents of his Majesty’s bedroom, namely Prompto, with his presence.

“Mm. Prompto, shh.”

Having regained his composure, Prompto laughed again, reaching down to give his friend a harder shove. 

“Noct, you have to wake up. Ignis and Gladio are expecting us.”

This time, he is awarded by the opening of a single eye. Noctis had once told Prompto his eyes looked like the ocean on a sunny day, bright, beautiful blue. Prompto had always thought Noctis’ were akin to the surface of a lake in winter. His reminiscing must have been obvious, as Noctis took the opportunity to flip back his blanket cave and latch onto the blonde’s waist, dragging him under. Prompto definitely shrieks this time. 

Giggling as he’s enveloped in the warmth of the blankets and of Noctis, Prompto tries to protest, but his voice fails him when he catches those seemingly lucent eyes pinned on him. He tells himself not to, but his body settles into the comfort of his boyfriend’s arms almost instinctually. Boyfriend. Prompto still kind of can’t believe it, but Noctis is there to remind him of it as much as is humanly possible. 

Noctis, seeing the thoughts flitting across Prompto’s facial features presses a quick kiss to his forehead, before pulling the other boy tighter against him, yawning into his hair.

The laugh that leaves Prompto’s mouth sounds like sunshine.

“Hey there, Sleeping Beauty.”

Noctis scoffs, “Excuse you, I’m Prince Charming.”

“That is a lie, and you know it.”

Noctis only doesn’t push him off the bed because he’s way too tired and he kind of is really in love with him. Feeling the silence set upon them, Noctis is suddenly uncomfortable. He likes silence, but he also has too much of it. He shakes the boy in his arms slightly.

“Prom, talk.”

Bottle glass eyes look at him, surprised, but his lips turn up at the corners and that’s more than enough for Noctis. So Prompto talks and talks and talks, Noctis listening to every word, because every second with this blonde angel should be treasured. At one point, Prompto stops, but the apartment no longer feels silent, and Noctis is too distracted by the freckles that dust the gunner’s cheeks. 

Prompto tugs his lip into his mouth, about to apologize for talking too much when his mouth is occupied, instead, by Noctis’ own. Eventually, they pull away for air, and Noctis’ mouth curves in a sleepy smile.

“Hey. Nerd.”

Prompto pouts.

“I love you.”

Prompto chokes on his own saliva, turning to Noctis in near disbelief. He’s crying before he realizes it, and Noctis sits up fast as lightning, cradling his face and asking what’s wrong, those beautiful wintry eyes worried.

Sniffling, Prompto replies, “Nothing’s wrong, you big dork, I’m happy. I…I never thought I’d hear someone say that about me.”

His voice is soft and shaky, but full of a trust that makes Noctis’ heart clench. Who couldn’t love this sweet, sweet boy? 

The prince leans down, pressing kisses against freckled cheeks and puffy red eyes until Prompto is laughing, “That tickles, Noct!”

Noctis’ eyes open, only to see Prompto’s taking on a mischevious glint, before he’s pushed off the bed. Groaning, he lays on the floor, shooting a look of betrayal to the face that is now cackling at him from above. 

Sobering, Prompto speaks, cheeks still red from laughter, “You really should get ready, Iggy will have my fucking head if you don’t.”

“I do like your head.”

Noctis receives a peace sign and a grin for that.

“…but not more than my bed.”

The noise Prompto makes is not human, and the gunner proceeds to scowl, flipping over on Noctis’ bed, and most tragically, curling all the blankets around him in some sort of nest-like method. Climbing back up, Noctis gives an experimental tug, sighing when the blankets won’t yield. 

“You did push me off the bed.”

Prompto seems to consider this and, deciding they’re even, allows Noctis to bury under the blankets to cuddle him once more.

A few moments of silence pass, before, “Iggy is going to kill us.”

“Mm.”

A sigh.

“You’re already asleep aren’t you, you big baby.”

“Mm.”

More silence.

“Hey Noct?”

“Mm?”

“I love you too.”

Prompto feels Noctis’ smile on his neck.

author’s note - finally got ffxv, and these two are so cute!! also i haven’t slept properly in two days, i may have switched tenses like eight times, and there’s no real plot other than cuddling and prompto being the literal sun. not the happiest with this, but i felt like writing, so it’ll do for now. enjoy! (also there’s a rain storm going on outside and it’s pretty cool, so it kind of set the sleepy mood)

#329: “Barbie movies were my childhood, and a welcome distraction from my gender dysphoria. Even today, as a FtM transperson, I happily watch them. I was really inspired and validated by The Nutcracker/Prince Eric, Julian, Derek, and Prince Antonio. They were my early male role models, and I wish they got more recognition and love.”

OTHER RESOURCES:

The Archetypes in Action.

Whether in Film or Literature.

Aries- That character that can’t wait to go on an adventure, even though everyone else tells them to move with caution. The one that pushes people, for good or for bad. Hot headed, protective and spirited. One of the first to fight through dangerous situations. 

Taurus- The character that wants a simple life, only for some kind of chaos to ensue completely out of their control. They make reserved company, only for strength and stamina to arrive when they really need it. Sensible and dry humoured. Admires physical delights, materialistic.

Gemini- The trickster character, changeable and witty, always ready to trip people up, prince or pauper. They will be the mischievous one, the one with sparkly eyes and a way of looking at life with much curiosity. Intelligent and communicative. 

Cancer- The character that nurtures the others around them, that provides support, yet will also react strongly to the events that take place. Intuitive and receptive to others, they will make strong bonds in even the most unlikely of circumstances. 

Leo- A just leader, yet with underlying egoism, Leo would be the loyal and brave character with assertion yet warmth. They could have a bit of a hero complex, but would be committed to protecting the vulnerable. Theatrical and humerous. 

Virgo- A cautious character, worrying about the health and well being of the ones around them. They would also be a brainiac of the group, seeing logic and patterns that many would miss. Yet this all partakes with grace and sensible qualities. 

Libra- A character wonderful at calming tense situations and arguments, exceptionally talented at bringing a sense of ease into the mix. They are diplomatic, charming, and are able to make themselves a match to many people. The primped one or the dandy. 

Scorpio- An enigma character, someone that is not easy to get a grasp of when first meeting them. They may turn out completely different later in the story, yet throughout, they are talented at dispelling situations. They have emotional intelligence and raw expression. 

Sagittarius- Wonderful with humour and adventure with a certain lightness radiating from them. Recklessness and irresponsible qualities may follow, yet they always manage to make you fond of them despite this. Like Gemini, they may take on the role of the trickster. 

Capricorn- The character with the solid plan, the support system for many of the other characters, also the one to be relied on. There is wisdom, maturity, dry wit and lessons that come with this character, yet also an old soul and melancholic expression. 

Aquarius- The rebellious character, often doing exactly what they have been told not to. They are cerebral, intelligent and eccentric, often adoring shaking things up, especially archaic qualities and systems. May come across as somewhat anarchic and insensitive. 

Pisces- The character that seems somewhere else entirely, yet is also infused with wisdom. They are likely compassionate and sensitive, yet may get forced into unfortunate situations due to rose tinted glasses. If they were one of the seven dwarfs, they would be sleepy.
