their greatest exchange

One Piece ワンピース [Thriller Bark Saga] : Shichibukai Bartholomew “Tyrant” Kuma vs Roronoa “Pirate Hunter” Zoro 

“Just stay back, all of you!! He challenged ME didn’t you hear?! I’ve accepted the challenge I don’t need help. So don’t humiliate me by butting in! When disaster looms, you’ve got to step up or shove off. Making excuses isn’t going to change anything. If I die here…then I wasn’t worth much to begin with!!”

This is my favorite moment in One Piece. When Kuma came to annihilate all witnesses to Gecko Moria’s defeat and challenged Zoro, the hype! Just the fact that they just defeated a Shichibukai and it took all they had and then another one shows up and Zoro stands his ground even though he’s clearly outclassed was like, “wow, what a badass”. But of course, what sealed the deal for me was when Zoro threw down his swords and offered his head, the head of the future “Worlds Greatest Swordsman”, in exchange for Luffy & his crewmates’ lives and then took in all of Luffy’s battle damage. Magnifique. Truly, Oda molded the perfect right hand for the future Pirate King!

This is my Makorra gift exchange gift for ceruleanavatar ! Kate, you said something along the lines of how Mako and Korra work so well for each other, which gave me the idea to draw something similar to what happened in canon where Kuvira and Korra were in a reflection-type scene to show how similar they were. Mako and Korra are pretty similar too aren’t they? ^^ I hope you like it!!

“You still need me? You still need me to do something, right?”

after rewatching birth by sleep clips I’m thinking Braig didn’t join Xehanort’s plan particularly willingly…

“I’m just lucky he didn’t steal my heart like Princess Whatever-it-was. That would’ve ruined my week for sure.”

“You’re lucky we’re alike.”

I grew to really like Jokaste by the end of Kings Rising. Much like Laurent, she was introduced rather villainously, only to have her true motivations very subtlely revealed much later on. People making the most of their own terrible situations and doing what they can to stay ahead is quite the recurring theme in these books. I still don’t know for sure what her true feelings for Damen are in the end, but I love that she saw the storm brewing on the horizon and did what she had to do to keep herself - and Damen - alive, even at great cost to the both of them.

On a more indulgent level, Jokaste and Laurent finally meeting face to face made for some of the GREATEST EXCHANGES in the entire series imo

So, I’m reading this biography of JFK Jr and, holy crap, him and his wife may have had one of the greatest verbal exchanges ever. (Context: they were arguing in a restaurant and everyone could hear them.) JFK Jr:“Why don’t we just get a divorce? We talk about it often enough!” Carolyn: “No way! We had to wait for YOUR mother to die before we could get married. We have to wait for MY mother to die before we can get a divorce!” I burst out laughing on the train and got some weird looks. Carolyn gets an A+ for acerbic wittiness during a marital spat.

Please enjoy what may be the greatest exchange in the history of this show, including:

  •  The camera whipping around dramatically as Sue storms up.
  • The way Sue’s voice sounds so broken when she says “This is all I had!”
  • The background laughter which i’m pretty sure is from the crew.
  • The way Mel charges in to back Sue up.
  • The utter lack of shits Selasi shows during any of it.

[editor’s note: this is a fanfic that was written a year ago with my lovely friend Thea. I consider myself immensely lucky to have worked with her, and I regard our time writing this as one of the best in my life. Please, go and give her the kudos she deserves, and read her fics!

This fic is written in two POVs: Jensen is written by me, and Misha is written by Thea.

Hope you enjoy. Thank you greatly for reading!]

Summary: Jensen was told that no harm would come out of this; it was a simple night at a club. Looking back on it, he guesses he played a big part on the whole clusterfuck of events that followed that Saturday night.

And this is where it all began. Outside a large building, with its two bouncers on each side of the purple velvet doors, and the hanging neons above. Who would have guessed what Jensen Ross Ackles, 32 years old, famous soap opera actor and beer connoisseur would find inside the “Den of Iniquities” club that night…
