One Piece ワンピース [Amazon Lily Arc] : Shichibukai Boa “Snake Princess” Hancock vs Captain “Straw Hat” Luffy

“Man, tell me…how did you get onto this island? What do you want here? I’m not a fool to believe in such a ridiculous tale. I know you’re up to no good, you’re after something. You’ll never leave here alive, your fate is already sealed! Amazon Lily is a nation of woman warriors. Here, strength is beauty. Fight to the best of your ability and die an honorable death!”

Boa Hancock is among the few characters in One Piece that I consider has no power cap. The only ones thus far who were willingly able to resist her Mero Mero no Mi were Luffy and Vice Admiral Momonga (barely), the rest crumbled to dust. That is what I consider a broken Paramecia. She practically came out of the “Summit War” Saga unscathed! My favorite techniques are Pistol Kiss & Slave Arrow and even tho she doesn’t really use Salome for combat, I like that it’s huge af. Amazon Lily was an interesting arc, got to see Oda explore the female figure other than the typical type 01 he always uses, and the Gorgon Sisters ties to Fisher Tiger was an interesting backstory. Also, any arc where Luffy uses Haoshoku Haki will always leave an impression! 

Writing a novel is a tiny candle in a dark, swirling world. It brings light and warmth and hope to the lucky few who, against insufferable odds and despite a juggernaut of irritations, find themselves in the right place to hold it. Blow it out, so our eyes will not be drawn to its power. Extinguish it so we can get some sleep.

Zoro and Sanji understand each other, and sometimes have a very similar sense of humor. Even though they’re worlds ahead of most, sometimes they can’t help but to act their age.

Easily one of my favorites. Zoro and Sanji are completely in character, being themselves and comfortable in each other’s spaces. For anyone who thinks Zoro and Sanji can’t get along in canon, this fic can easily prove them wrong.

It’s been a long time coming, and after more than three years, here it is! The first of hopefully many (or at least a few) more fan-art projects! I’ve never really had the nerve to post any before, so we’ll see how this goes!

There’s this webcomic I read called Bittersweet Candy Bowl, and it is my absolute favorite. From the characters and their interactions with each other, to the art style and everything else in-between, BCB was the comic that pulled me in the quickest. Anyway, gushing aside– here’s this little animation of Lucy, based on yesterday’s update.

Before I say goodnight, I feel terribly that I won’t be able to write for you guys for a few days; I’m studying for my finals, and my dad is off work this week so I’m going to be spending time with him. It’ll just be a few days and I’ll try my best to squeeze in some writing!!! Until then, here’s another general character blurb to get you to bed :)


He smiled before he yawned, walking into the bright yellow kitchen of your shared flat, as he saw your back turned to him. He smelled pancakes - burning pancakes - and heard you singing your favorite song. Badly. He chuckled softly to himself, running a hand through his unkempt hair as he leaned on the doorframe, watching you ‘cook’. You hit a high note - tried, and failed to - and he laughed, louder than he had intended. You whipped your head around, smiling when you saw he was awake. “Didn’ know I was getting breakfast and a show, sweetheart,” he mumbled, grinning as he opened his arms to you. Walking into them, you giggled softly. “Only the best for my man,” you replied, kissing the skin closest to you. He chuckled, pressing his lips to the top of your head, smiling like an idiot. 

He’d never been so in love.

I’m a few days late but Happy New Year, everyone!!! 2016 was The Fucking Worst but I’m glad to have made a blog because I met incredible people on it, people who became my best friends and helped me through a lot of shit. I’ve now had this blog for a year and also got nearly 300 followers so thank you!!! Mutuals/favorites/absolute fucking angels’ URLs are bolded but I love all of you so much and y’all run amazing blogs.

One of my favorite Korrasami moments ever is this hug because of the way Korra keeps eye contact with Asami until she’s in her arms (compare that with the hug with Mako a few minutes later where she was looking to the side, and again with the moment in the finale where both Korra and Asami keep each other’s gaze as they walk into the Spirit Portal). Also, I love how Korra’s arms stretch out in anticipation, just waiting to enfold Asami, and how Asami just fits in Korra’s arms like she’s meant to be there. (Of course she is.)

When I read this short story, I knew this was a good fit. The tale of Bobby is a wandering, quiet, kinda dark window into the life of a loner. Bobby lives in a nowhere town in Ireland, and we wanted to create the scene where he spies his pot dealer, the schoolgirl Becky, from across the dirty parking lot. For reference I picked a few random towns on the Google map of Ireland, and creeped around on Street View. 

My favorite bit of this is the little cigarette butt in the corner. Thanks AD Aviva Michaelov

So I’ve received a few pings on where my banner’s from. I love it so much since it combines two of my favorite things, whump, and reading mostly whump. It’s from the amazing movie The Book Thief, where you’ve got a hefty amount of gorgeous whumpy scenes that will color your life with rainbows and skittles and puppies…

Thought I’d make a GIF set as evidence, and while we’re at it, let’s celebrate  Tumblr’s GIF evolution from 2MB to 3MB, a.k.a. whump in better quality!

P.S. That bottom right corner GIF though, when the guard throws a brush on the floor, and poor Max, in his feverish semi-conscious state, blinks for a slight second at the noise… Nggguuuh!
