the real reason behind the fight

Is it really?

So Rowling had no way of knowing the political climate during the 19 Years Later epilogue, but we do now. So consider this: what kind of world does the Golden Trio live in right now?

Their country is in the middle of Brexit talks, with racism and protectionism at their worst and the magic community isn’t far behind. 

Young Pure Bloods march the streets with torches and capes, shouting “They will not replace us!” They wear Deatheater masks and temporary tattoos (oh it’s not the real thing, they’ll wash it off and be back at the office on Monday).

In the news, the authorities call for a cease of violence and ask people not to fight the young pure bloods. In the streets, people talk about talking to them calmly to fix things. Ron is livid. “You don’t reason with bloody Deatheaters! You throw curses at them!”

Hermione’s work for equality in the magical world gets harder every day. She starts getting death threats in her mail, many howlers that leave her in tears. She keeps going. When people insist that every werewolf is dangerous to society and they should all be banned from country, she tearfully remembers Lupin giving his life to protect them all, she remembers Dobby with a knife in his heart and Hagrid with his half giant blood and his giant heart. She keeps fighting. 

As much as he hates it —and he hates it a lot— Harry becomes a vocal public figure again, constantly condemning blood purists and calling for action against them. His office calls horrified after the first interview, telling him he can’t be calling for violence against this people who are only protesting. “They are Deatheaters and this is how we deal with them,” he snarls back. “Have you forgotten Voldemort?” On the other side of the line, he can feel them flinch. 

No one who fought the war has forgotten it, but so many others seem to, it pains Harry. It’s been barely twenty years since he saw children die in the grounds of Hogwarts, killed by grown angry men who believed themselves superior. It’s been barely twenty years since Tom Riddle’s death body laid on the ground and he thought they could finally have peace. 

The trio sends their kids on the Hogwarts Express and they can’t help but remember their experiences there in a time much like this. They never thought their own children would have to suffer as they did, they pray they won’t have to. 

Harry touches his lighting scar and reminds himself it hasn’t hurt again for years. All is well. A quiet voice inside his head wonders bitterly: “Is it, really?”

Demigod Q&A: Favorite Disney Character?
  • Annabeth: Belle, of course. She's intelligent.
  • Piper: Pocahontas. I love how proud she is of her people and how she's so willing to fight for them.
  • Hazel: I like Jasmine. She loves her tiger Rajah almost as I love my horse Arion.
  • Reyna: Mulan. The legacy she left behind demonstrates how one warrior can change the whole battle.
  • Jason: Probably Hercules. He's cool. I mean, the Disney version of him is cool. He's a douche in real life.
  • Leo: Tinker Bell! I'd say we're pretty similar.
  • Percy: Because you both have pointy ears?
  • Leo: *face reddens* NO–
  • Percy: I love Ariel, because life is the bubbles.
  • Frank: The reason why I'm picking Tiana is NOT because we've both been turned into frogs.
  • Nico: We have thoroughly discussed this. I'm Elsa, and Will is obviously Rapunzel. Just look at those beautiful glowing locks of his.
  • Will: I have boldly accepted this as my truth. *flips imaginary long hair*

Dean’s loud voice, thick with anger and despair filled your ears as you threw your clothes haphazardly into your suitcase.

“What do you think you’re doing Y/N? You’re going to bail out on me and Sammy just like that? After everything we have went through you’re going to call it quits? Because of what? Is it me? Did I do something wrong?”

Hearing his words brought tears to your eyes. You were seconds away from breaking his heart but you had to do this. You did not have another choice, not after what you had found out a while ago. Your hands were shaking; you stopped what you were doing and took a deep breath. Turning towards your soon to be ex-boyfriend, you looked into his eyes. He stopped with his wild gestures, his chest heaving from all the anger and frustration.

You swallowed the lump in your throat and started to speak, trying to sound as cold as possible. “I can’t do this anymore Dean. I don’t want to. Yes, I quit. I’m leaving you. This was never the life I imagined for myself. I want more, okay? And you can’t give me more Dean. I’m sorry.”

His arms dropped dead to his sides. His mouth fell slightly open and a shocked expression spread across his face as he stared at you, letting your words sink in. “You’re… What? Why? I thought… I mean we talked about this. You never wanted more. What changed?”

You could see in his slumped shoulders and teary eyes how much you had hurt him. ”I have to do this,” you kept telling yourself in your mind.

“I-I don’t know Dean, okay? I simply changed my mind. I want to get married and have kids and I want to come home to something that is not as broken as what we have. Let me go Dean. I’m done. Let me be happy.” 

You continued to pack the last pieces of clothing and zipped your suitcase; you didn’t have the courage to look him in the eyes right now. The guilt you felt when doing so made you question your decision but there was no going back now.

Hi! In another ask you mentioned the “real Ciel mastermind theory”, I know about the 2CT, but this is diferent? Can you tell me about it? Especially about the part that maybe real!Ciel is who murdered Rachel & Vincent, and also stabbed Tanaka? Thank you, and have a lovely day.♡

Yeah, it’s a theory that has been around in the Japanese fandom since around the same time people came up with 2CT. The reason some people suspected real Ciel might be the one who stabbed Tanaka is because

- the person who stabbed Tanaka from behind seems rather small (→maybe he’s a child?)

- Tanaka is a master of swords (GW arc) as well as Jujutsu/martial arts (Murder arc), i.e. he is extremely strong. Nevertheless, he was stabbed almost without any resistance (→maybe the attacker was someone who he couldn’t fight back, e.g. his master’s son?)

- Tanaka’s line to our Ciel “This is too cruel for you” (→maybe he said “cruel” because it’s our Ciel’s own brother who killed his parents?)

- Tanaka definitely saw the culprit but in ch62 he told our Ciel that he didn’t see anyone (→maybe he didn’t want to tell Ciel about the ‘cruel’ truth?)

- Tanaka was stabbed from behind but he survived (→maybe the stab wound wasn’t so deep because the attacker was a child?)

- there are some hints in the story that real Ciel wasn’t just a happy sunshine child but had a complex personality (→ch93, 95 and bonus chapter “That butler, nursing”)

These are the main reasons, but most of them are based on one flashback scene from our Ciel’s POV (ch19), so unlike 2CT, this theory doesn’t have much evidence yet! It’s just a theory, a possibility, so we have to wait and see :)

Bonus: I often do random surveys on twitter (just for fun) and funnily, I did a survey about the very question “Do you think the ‘real Ciel mastermind theory’ will turn out true?” 2 weeks ago and the result was

Nope: 25%

Lotor and his Generals- trust and expectations

One thing that really sticks with me from NYCC, was AJ mentioning how Lotor would have had to earn his stripes among the Galra well before we meet him.

Being Zarkon’s son clearly didn’t grant Lotor any automatic respect on his return, and I think it’s likely that Lotor’s status wouldn’t have come into play in regards to the dedication of his generals either. While Lotor’s speech about the honourable rite of combat is intended to be inspiring, Lotor’s (disreputable) reputation lets us know there’s real feeling behind it too- he strongly believes in fighting alongside his team. And so, when I think about Lotor rising through the ranks, I wonder what else he might have done to earn the trust and loyalty of his generals, rather than it being the other way around.

Since a key part of Lotor’s character seems to be subverting expectations, I can’t help imagine this might have been a point of significance with each of the generals too. Who did Lotor go back for, when all the odds were against him? (Zethrid? She jokingly reminds him the reason she signed-up was to make sure he never executes such terrible strategy again…) Whose advice did Lotor listen to, when he desperately wanted to take control and make another decision instead? (Ezor? She’s used to prompting and asking and gathering intel, the first time she knows she has to make a call, it feels like it should be someone else. Lotor doesn’t doubt her for a second.)

Who does Lotor lift up, when they realise, for the first time, what it is to fall? Collecting scaultrite from a weblum is clearly a two-person task. Did more go wrong for Acxa than just her ship becoming trapped? When Acxa returns, does Lotor debrief the mission in full, for hours and hours, to make her feel normal again, then wait till he’s alone to lose it over the fact that she’s safe?

Who found out something that Lotor didn’t mean to share? Lotor’s conquered a lot of planets- there has to have been a moment when things didn’t go to plan. While maintaining a calm exterior, Lotor could well have been furious with himself for leading his team into danger, or deeply upset at the thought of failing before he’s had a chance to honour what memories he has of Honerva. Narti is a powerful telepath, I think it’s more than possible she can receive thoughts/images without actively seeking them, if someone she feels close to was emotionally aroused enough. Later, when the danger’s passed, I imagine Lotor might want to apologise to her, and Narti intends to tell him she’s there if he wants to talk. Neither can find the words, but Lotor offers a quiet ‘I’m glad you know’, and the unspoken understanding is enough.

I think what I’m trying to say is, we know so much would have happened to get them this far. They all earned their stripes, they all fought side by side, they all made it together… and I’m just so, so ready for s4, and to see them all go that little bit further.

An extraordinary choice, a newcomer actor, Atomu Mizuishi chosen as Al's voice actor! Great praises from author Hiromu Arakawa and Director Sori!

A newcomer actor, Atomu Mizuishi won the casting for the voice of Al, the brother of Ryosuke Yamada’s character, Ed!  Mizuishi previously starred in the Prince of Tennis 2nd Season musical (2012-2015), played a leading role in The Little Prince musical (2015),  appeared in the TV drama Garo - Makai no Hana (2014), and was part of the main cast of Ronri no Chikara (2015/NHK). He attracted the public’s attention upon appearing in the movie Mukoku (2017), and he’s expected to become a rising new actor!

During his childhood, Al failed at attempting “Human Transmutation” with his older brother Ed in order to revive their deceased mother. Al lost his whole body as a price, and Ed somehow managed to retrieve his soul in exchange for his right arm. In order to save his life, Ed attached his brother’s soul to a suit of armor nearby, resulting in Al’s existence as merely a soul without a real body. 

In order to draw the story of the one half of the two Elric brothers, Al, as a character that is visualized through full CG, became a very important role this time. Mizuishi won the casting as Al’s motion capture actor after auditioning against over 100 other candidates. During the fierce battle scene between the brothers due to the growing distrust between them, he had such a superb performance that the director decided there was no need to dub any further, due to the high degree of perfection for this scene, the staff decided to appoint him as Al’s voice actor as well. In contrast to his armored figure and Ed’s straightforward personality, Al is a gentle and kind hearted character, and with Mizuishi’s voice, he doesn’t feel like a CG character, it feels like he’s really there, breathing like a real human being.

Regarding the reason behind the choice of casting the newcomer actor, Director Sori commented, “Mizuishi was originally casted as the stand-in actor for CG Al to act along Yamada who portrays Ed. Before filming, we originally planned on using a different actor to voice Al. Just as the shooting progressed, his acting as the stand-in actor was really wonderful, especially during the fighting scene between the brothers, and looking at the exquisite combination between him and Yamada, we decided to appoint Mizuishi as Al’s voice actor as well. So this major casting was won by Mizuishi’s own ability. Rie Kuigimiya who voiced Al in the original anime also saw the completed movie and praised Mizuishi’s performance as Al, so we’re happy to have Mizuishi joining us, and we are convinced that our judgement [regarding his casting] is not wrong.” Yamada and Honda who had developed a close relationship [with Mizuishi] as if they are real brothers and childhood friends, reacted happily upon hearing the news of this casting choice.

The original manga author, Hiromu Arakawa, also praised Mizuishi, “Ed and Al were really there. It was a wonderful performance that really touched my heart. During the shooting, [Mizuishi] was placed as Al’s stand-in actor, but his connection with Yamada was really wonderful, so he was eventually chosen. The story is certainly like the American Dream. I think if Al grew up, he’d have a voice like [Mizuishi’s voice].” 

How will Al sound in the complete movie voiced by Mizuishi? The expectations will increase from now on!

Actually helpful education hacks:

“I don’t understand any of the things the teacher just said“

Try to catch some keywords in chronological order, note them down and research them on the internet. Having more than one keyword helps finding the right topic.

“The teacher picked me but I wasn’t raising my hand“

The teacher is shitty but that doesn’t help rn.

First recall: 1. Nobody in this room expects you to say the right answer and everyone feels a similar discomfort as you do right now, because everyone has been in this situation and knows what it feels like.

2. “I am not sure“ “can I get help“ “I don’t know“, teachers usually go on as soon as you said something, and if you really don’t know the answer, this is the fastest way to get out of this awful situation.

“I’m hungry but I don’t have anything with me“

Get yourself some food. It’s a priority now. Your brain can’t work without proper nutrition.

“I don’t understand the question that I have to do this lesson“

Try it. Don’t freak out if you don’t understand. This is the most important part, AND IT’S TRUE. Wait for the teacher to explain it and note down the solution, and research how they got there at home. Don’t come to any conclusions if you can’t solve it. Your brain will not be a great help if it already saved something negative for the task.

“Everyone else has a higher word count on the paper than me. Did I do something wrong?“

If you reached the word cound the teacher set and you wrote everything you knew, it’s probably alright.

“This teacher doesn’t like me.“

Try to ask yourself: Do they really personally dislike me, or do they not understand the reason behind a certain behavior?

Theachers most likely don’t dislike you because you are bad at their subject, or because you forget your shit. Normal reasons to dislike a student on a personal level is that they ate personally rude; like disturbing the lesson purposefully.

Also, teachers can’t read your mind, and a lot of them can’t difer between being shy and not paying attention. Try to somehow explain to them the reason behind your behavior.

Your teachers probably don’t hate you.

“I am reall sick. Should I go to school anyway?“

No. Not only will you not be able to pay real attention since your body is occupied fighting; you will also just make it worse and have to stay home longer in the end.

If you have a nasty cough, coming back to PE early can actually seriously damage your body.

Also, you might infect others.

Definately don’t come to school if: You have a fever, are less than two days into a cough, feel dizzy, have severe cramps or headaches.

Missing one, two days or even a week of schoom won’t ruin your education. Coming from someone who is physically sick 90% of the actual school year.


anonymous asked:

Congrats on your book!! But also since this is party asks only, could you write a punk!lena and Kara. Maybe college au? ❤️❤️

It’s three am.

It’s three am and she’s trying to study.

She’s trying to study and all she can hear is the sound of Something Corporate – she would recognize that band anywhere, the way Alex so intensely loves their music – pouring through the thin dorm walls.

She sighs and she wonders if maybe she should go introduce herself, so that maybe she could actually get some studying done and also so that maybe she can find a friend for Alex.

What she finds, instead, when she pads down the hall in pink fuzzy slippers, terribly clashing The Flash pajama pants, and one of Alex’s old sweaters, is a girl with perfect eyes, perfect… everything.

“I Woke Up In a Car” hits Kara like the wall of sound that it is as the girl opens the door just a crack.

“Yeah?”

Kara just tilts her head – she’s done this with Alex so many times – because she’s not trying to shout over this chorus. Alex has long since taught her that it’s a cardinal sin to communicate in anything but soulful head bangs and lip-syncing during these songs anyway, lest you disrupt the emotional energy of it all.

The girl rolls her eyes slightly and sighs, disappearing from the door for a moment. The music lowers, and the girl comes back to the door.

“That all you wanted?” she drawls sadly, like this is the only place she’s ever been allowed to blast her music, like she needs the words of these songs the same way Alex does, like she needs the rhythms pumping through her bloodstream the way Alex does.

To feel. To survive. To understand herself. To not feel quite so alone.

And suddenly, turning the music down and possibly finding a friend for Alex isn’t all Kara wants.

O.K.K.O: Let’s Be Heroes! Series Review

Now HERE’S a show I’ve wanted to get a chance to sit down and watch forever. O.K.K.O: Let’s Be Heroes! is the rare show that comes along every once in a while that immediately sparks my interest upon seeing some previews. The show is just everything I love as a person. It’s back to good ol’ hand drawn frame by frame, it’s got both fun physical AND well written humor, and it features some of my favorite people in the industry around like members of the animation team behind the also fantastic Steven Universe and the guys behind some of the most phenomenal animation on the web, Studio Yotta, which fans may know created most of the music videos for the band Starbomb.  As if the show was literally made for me it also premiered on my birthday no less. It’s centered around one of the coolest concepts ever … FIGHTING. Yeah, I know that recently we’ve been getting pretty tired of violence in the real world and for good reason. The controversial shit is really getting to a lot of people. But there’s two types of fighting: that which is propelled by maliciousness and hatred, and that which is for sportsmanship, adrenaline and honest to God fun. This show is the latter type of fighting through and through, and it is AWESOME. Naturally this show did not disappoint me. I binge watched a whole bunch of it to get caught up and had a big ass grin on my face the whole time.


PLOT SYNOPSIS:

 K.O is a spunky, ambitious and good hearted little kid (Think Steven Universe and Goku from DBZ mashed together, and a bit of Ryu from Street Fighter) who wants to become a hero like the people around who inspire him, such as the towering musclebound badass of a plaza boss Mr. Gar. To do this, he ends up getting employed at Lakewood Plaza Turbo and works alongside Radicles, the pompous macho alien man with the levitation beam who’s secretly hiding a sensitive side (think Lars from Steven Universe but more endearing and less of a pain in the ass), and Enid, the snarky, sarcastic ninja who gives no fucks. They go on some misadventures, learn some lessons about themselves, occasionally Lord Boxman and his goons cause some trouble but they’re never threatening, and once in a while we get some clues into Mr. Gar’s past and how it’s tied to K.O’s mom Carol.

STORYTELLING:

I’ve gone on record before in saying that the best show premises are the ones just broad enough to go in all sorts of different directions with creative storytelling, and this show is thankfully no different. It’s got a great memorable setting with an expansive likable cast, great recurring jokes and a refreshingly fun tone about it. You can definitely tell the Steven Universe team worked on it because that and O.K.K.O have very distinct similarities, especially early season one of SU. The main difference to me though is the level of drama and the quality of humour. It’s a relatively new show that promises to introduce some drama down the line so comparing that to SU doesn’t feel fair at this point in time, but I’m very confident in saying O.K.K.O is funnier. SU has decent jokes, don’t get me wrong, but something about O.K.K.O just got me to laugh more consistently at it’s ultra bizarre humor. My favorite jokes tend to be the ones about Enid hating having to deal with entitled customers, but my favorite joke in the whole show thus far involves a certain coffee pun making mughead named Joe Cuppa. It’s a reveal that is so surreal and so bewildering that I can’t spoil the surprise, but damn if it isn’t funny.

In terms of both storytelling and animation, despite being an action show first and foremost, O.K.K.O’s greatest attribute is it’s humor. The wild faces, the great comedic timing in the cuts, the bizarre movement of the characters at times, plus the combination of both surreal and poignant lines make for a consistently clever ride. There’s one particular episode that I think really captures the harsh reality of fandoms that’s relevant to an eerie extent, and it can all be summed up by this one line by Radicles.

“Who knew people could be so dumb about art they love so much?”

ANIMATION:

Now, being an animator myself, one of the biggest attractions to this show for me was the fact that it was a return to classic Hand Drawn 2D animation. In a time where the vast majority of television programming is either passable but uninteresting character rigging or bland, texture lacking 3d animation, a return to what is in my opinion the most organic, spontaneous and therefore the most consistently interesting animation style is always welcome. The show even references it’s animation style at 24 FPS in one of the lyrics sung by Rebecca Sugar in the credits, which I adore.

“Every second that you see is 24 connected pieces. Thank you for coming. Thank you for staying. Thank you for watching the show.” - Rebecca Sugar.

Really, that lyric should be a pretty good indication about the kind of passion put into this show. When this show gets going, it’s got some of the most consistently satisfying and creative animation I’ve seen in a long time. The characters feel unbound by typical design conventions which allows for more flexibility in their expressions and their poses, and it makes for both very effective comedy and some of the most dynamic and well choreographed action scenes you can find on TV right now. A large contribution to the studio being able to pull this off is the simplistic art style. Every character is often times sketched pretty roughly with some proportions being askew at times, hands turning into little spheres, backgrounds lacking big details and so on. But what the art lacks in consistency it more then makes up for in fluidity and spontaneity. I’m actually glad they don’t care as much about the little details because it gives them the freedom to put more time into creating the kind of epic grand scale fighting we like to see. It really does feel like they put a lot of heart and soul into how this show looks. The intro and outro alone are hype as hell to watch.

Originally posted by kewlbot

Now that said, the animation isn’t without it’s problems. Sometimes it’s really obvious where they put in minimal effort to save time, especially in large cheering crowd scenes, and I’ve noticed more then a few awkward cuts and transitions unfortunately when I could easily think of something that would have looked better and could be done in the same amount of time. But you can’t win everything I guess. All in all, I dig the way this show works and it has it’s priorities in check.

Acting

This show has a great cast that really fits each character. K.O. has a voice that’s kiddish and endearing, but it never gets annoying or grading, which is a flaw a lot of child characters have the unfortunate tendency of having. Chalk this up as another way in which K.O. is better then Steven Universe btw. Enid has a great voice for articulating a snarky give-no-fucks attitude but it’s also always great whenever she needs to be genuine. Radicles is the macho alien man so naturally he has a great voice that’s a combination of every surfer dude and college fratboy you ever heard of. He’s a pompous egotistical jerk certainly but he’s several times more endearing then characters of his archetype because he’s shown to not be completely heartless or needlessly cruel to people close to him. Mr. Gar is great and more often then not gets the funniest lines in the show. Carol is the sweetest most charismatic badass mom in all of cartoon history and I gush whenever she and K.O interact. All the supporting characters do great, there isn’t a single voice in the show I find unbearable. Also this show consistently gets awesome celebrity voices like Keith David, and, more notably, the dude who says “INCONCEIVABLE!” in The Princess Bride.

Sound Design

Not a whole lot to say here other then it’s definitely serviceable. They sneak in some appropriate cartoon sound effects in there. The sound effects for the fight scenes like the crashing and exploding are pretty good. The intro song is fucking amazing. Like literally, I can watch the intro to this show over and over and be consistently entertained, it’s great. That’s the true sign of a promising show; when you can always sit through the intro and not get tired of it.

Art Design

I’ve already touched upon this point in the animation section, but as I mentioned before the art style is very minimal at times. But that’s totally fine. It acts in the shows favor more often then not because it gives the animators freedom to put their best work in the places that matter. Plus the character designs are great and memorable, they cover the bases for character design 101. You can tell who each character is in silhouette. Their inspirations are pretty plain to see like K.O. is so obviously modeled after headband clad fighting dudes like Street Fighter or Double Dragon. Enid is so obviously a Naruto inspired character. Radicles is probably some alien marvel character, idk. Point being, everyone is distinct and they communicate their personalities through how they look. You know everything you need to know about K.O. through a single picture of him.

*fun fact: K.O’s character design was the inspiration for the design of Ruby in Steven Universe.

Conclusion:

O.K.K.O: Let’s Be Heroes is everything I hoped it would be. It’s got a lot of heart, great surreal humor, intense and well choreographed action, great memorable characters and overall just leaves me with a simultaneously light/pumped up heart and a smile. The only thing I can really think of that’s wrong with it is it’s weird editing choices and select moments where cutting corners in animation was obvious, but that’s pretty small fry issues. I can’t wait to watch more.

I’ve always believed that Itachi and Kisame were like strange best friends while partners.

That Kisame knew the real reason behind the massacre and understood what was going through Itachi’s head even when he was silent. When he finally found out about Itachi’s disease, he secretly mourned for him, but refused to show how upset he really was in front of him. He was always in awe of Itachi’s intelligence and followed his orders out of respect of their relationship.

That Itachi let Kisame know that his eyesight was failing him and that his Sharingan was the biggest burden he’d wished he’d never received. He understood Kisame’s love to fight and though he was a pacifist himself, he allowed his partner to engage in unnecessary battles to get his stress out while Itachi just waited.

That they discussed the possibility one night of disappearing and never returning to the shinobi world. They could live on the ocean - because Kisame loved the water and Itachi had never lived anywhere with open water - and enjoy a life of peace. But Itachi knew he had to protect his brother and Kisame knew Itachi would succumb to his disease in only a few years. And without certainty of their deaths, they would continue to be hunted.

And so, Kisame had kept Itachi’s disease a secret, helping him the best that he could to get through it until he could face Sasuke and the night that he died, Kisame seriously considered leaving Akatsuki, understanding that a large part of the reason he had stayed with the organization for so long was because he’d had Itachi as his partner. And before he allowed his own jutsu to take his life, he realized he was okay with it because he’d finally be able to see his best friend again in a place where there was an ocean and the world was at peace.

Masterlist

~~~

This unsub was not who you were expecting.

You were a Supervisory Special Agent for the FBI. You were part of Chris Jackson’s team in New York City, being a transfer from Aaron Hotchner’s team in Quantico. You were in your early thirties and have been in the Behavioral Analysis Unit since you were twenty. You had a Ph.D. in Psychology and a Bachelor’s in sociology. Add ten years of self-defense training and knowledge on firearms and explosives, and you got yourself an agent fit for the BAU. You started off in Quantico, where you went through the FBI Academy and graduated the top of your class alongside Spencer Reid, one of your good friends from Hotchner’s team. It was actually Reid who convinced you to move back to your hometown and join Chris’ team.

There were big differences between the Quantico team and the New York team.

Firstly, the New York team was bigger than the Quantico team.

Father and Son

@kaelinaloveslomaris gave me a prompt of Vader and Luke surviving RotJ, Vader carrying Luke, and Luke holding Vader’s hand.  (I may have been grumbling about Dreamwalker again.)  So have a ficlet!  It immediately follows a slightly different fight on the second Death Star.

SERVAMP Festival Fanreport (2/5) (Noon)


Now that I’m finally back home I can reorganize my points and write the full report! Take note this report contains only the noon session. Night session can be found HERE. And since it will be made into a DVD (that will be released on 28th June), it will be considered spoilers if you are intending to get the DVD so you don’t have to read it if you don’t want to! My report may or may not be a little Kimura Ryohei/Greed pair-centric since I unconsciously focus on them most of the time.

I should also mention that it might not be 100% accurate as it is based off from memory, so sorry if I mess up! I’ll only write what I can remember.
And also because I fail at English and suck at writing a report it probably turned out being messier than I thought it would be…….sorry.

It’ll get pretty lengthy so I’m placing everything under a cut!! ↓↓

The Beach Trip That Never Happened (Jared Kleinman X Gender Neutral Reader)

WARNING: very light smut, swearing, Jared is awkward

“I can’t believe you.” You stare out the window at the rain, Jared had decided they should all go to the beach this Friday and everyone had warned against it. Saying it was definitely going to rain and under no circumstances anyone should go to the beach in this weather. But he hadn’t listened, because why would he? You’d taken two cars and Alana, Zoe, and Evan had taken one car, and because he felt bad at the idea of you driving alone Jared opted to ride with you.

But obviously your car had broken down, and once the rain had started you’d both lost your temper, Connor drove home with the rest, leaving you stranded. He glared, “me? Your car broke down.”

“What?” You snapped, “my car? you’re blaming my car for your bad decision?” You tapped the dash of the car, “he doesn’t mean it. He’s just bitter because he doesn’t listen to weathermen.” You look at the wheel as you say it and he leans back in the seat, “don’t talk passive-aggressively to your crappy car about me.” He mumbled. You turned, “it’s actually a private conversation, so…” You fight a smile and he nudges you, “you’re so lame… Are you actually mad?” He whispered the last part and you rolled your eyes, “no. Obviously.”

You lean into him a little, “it was nice of you to offer to ride with me… But don’t talk shit about my car.” You warn. You’re a little closer than before and you see a faint blush across his nose, “you warm? I’d roll down the window but it's… You know, raining.” He gives a small nervous laugh, “you’re just… It’s nothing.” He leans away and you mimic him, almost pressing your back into the window, “sorry.” You look away and he shakes his head, “I just… I’m warm, like you said.”

There’s a silence between you and you glance out the front window, “so why were you so determined to go to the beach?” You ask and he shrugged, “I guess I wanted to spend some time together- with everyone, before the weather got shitty again. Also girls in swimsuits, but mainly the first thing.” He chuckled and you nodded, “I get it. It’s moving quick and you want to… Have as much time as you can.”

His cheeks are bright pink as he nods, “exactly!” You lean back, “but I mean didn’t have to drag me out in the rain.” You smirk and he narrows his eyes, “whatever. You agreed to come anyway.”

“fuck, I should call a tow-truck.” You mutter, grabbing your phone and dialling. All through the conversation in the phone you can feel him watching you, and your fighting to keep your focus on the conversation. You hang up, “they’ll be here in 30 minutes.” He nods. He looks really… Pretty, with the rain behind him and everything.

“What?” He catches you off guard and you rub the back of your neck, “I don’t know. Just thinking about what you said… We should spend time doing what we want.” You wonder if you’re blushing. Your hands are really sweaty with no real reason and he nods, “are you? Doing what you want, I mean?” He’s closer and you gulp. Why are you so nervous? It’s just Jared. You look down, “I’m trying to.” You sound shyer than originally intended and he nods, “you’ve got to just go for it while you can you know?” It’s too late to realise there’s very little space between you.

Rain hammered down on the car as the moment hung in the air, you were inches apart and felt briefly lightheaded. His eyes were dark as he looked at you and you weren’t sure what to do next. If you kissed him (which had suddenly become apparent as the only thing you wanted right now) and he backed away- that was the friendship over, but if you backed away you might regret it your whole life. The tension is too much to bare and you take a small breath and kiss him lightly on the lips. It was intended to be quick and chaste, but it didn’t say that way. He didn’t move away; he instead kissed back. Mouth opening and heads tilting in small ways for a better angle. His hand moved up your thigh and yours to his jaw. You slide your tongue into his mouth and he bites lightly on the tip, causing a light moan to come from the back of your throat.

His hand moved further up to the small of your back, trying to pull your bodies closer together. In that second your elbow hits the car horn and you both jump back.

HONK

You break away from each other, blushing and panting a little. You let out a nervous giggle, “that was weird.” You whisper and he nods, “yeah. Yeah it was weird. Like… A good weird or a bad weird?” His eyes flashed to you and back down. You turn to face him, “nonono! A good weird. A pretty great weird.”

“fantastic weird- really.” He wasn’t looking at you but he was nodding frantically. You press your lips together, “but we shouldn’t do it again- in case we ruin the friendship.” You sound half-hearted. He clears his throat, “oh yeah- totally. It would be stupid.” He looks up at you and you chuckle, “I mean- imagine how reckless that would be.”

“Yeah- so reckless.”

You watch as he grabs you by the jaw and pulls you into another kiss. Harder and desperate. You cupping his face, lacing your fingers through his hair. You’re both out of breath and you can feel him running his hand up under your shirt, he mumbles your name and you stomach flips. You want to be calm about this, but there’s a voice inside that keeps repeating: ‘he’s kissing you! He’s kissing you!’ Over and over again. He moves slowly to your neck, sucking and biting.

“Jared wait!” You whisper and pull away, he looks panicked, “did I do something wrong?” His eyes are wide and his lips pink. You shake your head, “God no! But, like, if you pull the back seat I can sit on your lap.” After some intense fumbling his seat moves back and you straddle his hips, “is this ok?” You ask. You don’t get answer as he goes back to kissing the crook of your neck. He tugs up the hem of your t-shirt and pulls it over your head. He plants small kisses down your chest and you run your hands over him, unbuttoning his shirt.

You can feel him pressing into you and you blush heavily, “I can’t believe we’re making out in your crappy car.” He mutters; you scowl, “it’s not a crappy- ohh.” He bites into your neck and you instantly forget your argument. His hands hold the small of your back as he kisses you, hands soft and strong as he runs them up to your hips, grinding slowly. His face is buried in your neck and you whine quietly. You lean your head back and pull lightly on his hair. He breaks away to look at you, “you’re so cute. Fuck you are so cute.” He’s starting to babble and you smirk, “Kleinman, I’m gonna need you to stop talking.” You cup his jaw and he smiles.

He pecks your lips before opening his mouth, letting his tongue glide in. You moan and his hands dig into your side. You can still hear the rain and you’ve never been more grateful of it. Never been happier to not go to the beach. His erection his pressing into your thigh and you can feel your own blood rushing from your head.

Suddenly, there’s a tap on the window. An older man, around 40; is peering in

“CHRIST!” You shout, throwing yourself back into the drivers seat and reaching for your shirt. You pull it on inside out and wind down the window, “hi- what- who are you?” You stutter out. He’s holding back a laugh, “you called a tow truck?”

Headcanon questions for Thiam - 1. Who's the big spoon and who's the little spoon? 2. Who's more likely to cry during the notebook? And how does the other react? 3. How do they express their love to each other? 4. What was their first date?

Hey :D thanks for these!! 
Who’s the big spoon and who’s the little spoon?
It switches depending on the time. When the newest supernatural threat is about Theo’s the big spoon. He doesn’t like the idea of Liam sleeping with his back totally exposed, also he can get up faster as the big spoon, not having to fight his way out of Liam’s arms. But day to day, when there’s no threat Theo’s the little spoon. He tries to complain about it but the way he instantly relaxes when Liam wraps an arm around his waist makes it pretty obvious his bitching means nothing.
Who’s more likely to cry during the notebook?
Everyone expects it to be Liam but when Lydia forces the pack to watch it and Liam drags Theo along it’s Theo who ends up scrubbing the tears off his face at the end. Liam finds it hilarious, mainly because Theo had complained about the film choice before they put it on. He mocks him to no end but the moment another pack member tries to laugh at Theo he’s on the defensive and fighting for Theo’s pride. Although that could just be because Stiles asked if Theo cried during sex.

How do they express their love to each other?
Liam just straight up say he loves him. He figures it’s the best way, he know’s he can’t lie for shit and Theo still looks for the real reason behind every action. Saying it takes that away, Theo can hear he’s telling the truth and he doesn’t have to spend money on flowers o something, although, he does like buying Theo little gift’s now and then. He even says it in arguments ‘I love you but you’re being an asshole’ is how he’d describe their relationship if asked to do it in one sentence. 
Theo is great with words and Liam knows it. He can lie through his teeth to a roomful of werewolves and not break a sweat. Theo also knows Liam knows it and knows he said too many empty words to Liam when they first met so he prefers actions. Not flowers or buying him stuff but by touches. He’ll pull Liam into a kiss and let that say everything. Will pour every ounce of love into it until they’re both breathless. Will step in front of him in a battle, or just wrap his arms around him during quiet moments. 
What was their first date?
Theo will say it was at the hospital. Liam will tell him to shut up. It was really pretty simple. They deal with the newbie hunters and the wild hunt escapee and Liam had come to see Theo. Back in his truck still riddled with bullet holes and his own blood. Liam had brought pizza and they’d sat in the truck bed on Theo’s blanket eating pizza and talking. They’d already had their first kiss, weeks of being stuck in a warehouse together, fighting together and with each other on stressful days had lead to Theo crashing their lips together so when Liam had turned up they both knew where the night was leading them. Theo preferred it like that, knowing Liam had taken that first step eyes wide open. So Theo’s not surprised in the slightest that after the pizza’s gone and a lull comes in the conversations Liam leans in, a bundle of nerves maybe, but not shocked. The kiss is awkward, both of them breathing too hard and Theo’s fingers leave little trails of pizza grease on Liam’s neck as he tugs him closer. Liam knee’s over a soda can half way through and they can still smell Theo’s blood from the front seat so yeah..The date isn’t exactly highkey or romantic but it worked for them.
