**THE ISSUE IS RESOLVED BUT I’M LEAVING THIS POST UP SO PLEASE DON’T HAVE A GO AT ME LIKE SOME PEOPLE HAVE. IT’S NOT NECESSARY.**
I’m seeing so much stuff about how much people love Tom Holland. I totally get it he’s the cutest man I’ve ever looked at. He’s a sweetie, he loves his dog, Tessa, he’s a fantastic brother and son. So loving and kind to his family, friends and fans.
I see people posting about how much they love him.
And then I the same people saying horrible things about him.
Like how he apparently looks like hes holding a frog in his mouth?
Or that he looks strange with facial hair.
And going so deep into these things as to give both the imaginary frog AND his facial hair names.
I think they were Dave and Dennis?
I don’t remember.
Tom has spoken in interviews about how he was bullied in school about his appearance, and now people who claim to love him are doing the same.
This is not directed at anyone specific, mostly because I don’t pay attention to the names of those posting these things, but even if you think it’s a joke and all in good fun, it’s still at someone’s expense and that’s not okay.
It’s not okay to say these things about anyone.
This needs to stop.
So what do you think of the TP manga so far? Do you like the changes they've been making? Does it take too long to get anywhere? Is Link's backstory fitting? And what do you think of character relationships (particularly Midna and Link)?
So far, I LOVE it! the changes have been fine/great if not, tolerable. I welcome alterations when it comes to Game-to-Manga adaptions. (really what’s the point, if they’re just going to give us the same thing or less?) I feel they’ve found a nice balance of keeping close to story events, yet changing how/when those events play out (much like the Kingdom Hearts Manga).
Changes let’s talk about the main change that got everyone’s attention: the edginess of this adaption. I was very surprised by this. not b/c of cheap shock value, but by how well it worked. This type of edge raised the stakes and immersed the urgency for the characters. what it accomplished was that, this time, the manga adaption was not going to downplay or refrain certain content, as most LoZ manga has done. (they definitely got this point across by having Link lose his arm). For example, the gore traumatized Ilia, she’s told Link was slaughtered, and she’s a hostage to the Moblin king who has taken an uncomfortable interest in her. this caused her to contemplate suicide, only to eventually lose her memory. the edgy topics/scenes aren’t for nothing, It adds a bit of weight to the story.
But the first thing that caught my attention, was something that’s a make or break for me: the Art style. In my humble opinion, I Love it! And it’s so much better than say, the Ocarina of Time Manga. It striped off that 90’s-manga style that’s been so prevalent in Akira Himekawa’s works. Personally I prefer to steer clear as possible from that style. ᵐᵒʳᵉ ˢᵒ ᶠᵒʳ ᵗʰᶦˢ ᵇ/ᶜ ᴵ ᵈᵒᶰ’ᵗ ʷᵃᶰᵗ ᵗᵒ ˢᵉᵉ ᵐʸ ʰᵘˢᵇᵃᶰᵈ ᶫᵒᵒᵏᶦᶰᵍ ᶫᶦᵏᵉ ᵗʰᵃᵗ ˣᴰ but that’s just me.
↓compare Ocarina manga (Left) Twilight manga (Right)
Though few, action scenes are much better than other LoZ manga, and are nicely choreographed. (unlike a one page sword swing with dead enemies just to imply action)
The Pacing I hate waiting for stuff to happen in Manga, b/c it’s always weeks of waiting, but true to Twilight Princess, it’s about the journey not the end, and I will happily delay that ending for more content, be it significant or not. b/c once it’s over it’s over. the other LoZ manga rushed WAY to fast, and just abbreviated the story to a crippling degree. So I really like the current pace (ch.30), I just hope they don’t rush through certain spots. dungeons fine but not, say, Snow Peak Ruins. b/c I’m needing to see some Yeto and Yeta in this manga XD.
I’ve heard that this was going to be a 5 volume manga, if that’s true, vol. 5 is going to be a terrible butchered summery, b/c in vol.4 Link JUST got to Castle town, and met Telma. I Hope that’s wrong.
Link’s backstory Link’s back story I could do without. Disappearing town? Is it b/c of the Twilight spreading? why is Hero Shade involved with it? what was with that excalibur sword? it kind of upstages the Master Sword, by existing the same way it does. I suspect it’s all JUST to give a reason for Link’s exceptional sword skill (b/c no farm boy could do that stuff, yet we all excepted it in the game so it’s not necessary) anyway, it’s odd and out of place but not distracting. it’s tolerable to say the least b/c it hasn’t resurfaced but all the more useless it is to even add it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It reminds me of that weird extra chapter they added in Majora’s mask manga with that weird dancing monster….. What even?
Characters and relationships I like that Link’s relationship with Rusl wasn’t ignored. Hes the closest thing to a father figure any Link has Ever had. same goes for the little brother role for Colin (love that family). Luda is just the cutest thing in game and now more so here! I’m so glad she got such a main part! If they make the Moblin King end up as he does in game, I’d be happy, though I’m really doubting the screen time will be spared for him. I Love that shad is getting characterization, even with Ilia. I hope it comes full circle with the City in the Sky segment. perhaps Shad can prove no hard feelings to Link and how sincere he is as an ally, as well as any intentions with Ilia (romantically or friendship). with that said, I hope Ashei will get the same spotlight treatment.
Midna I just want to say I’m glad they aren’t PRETENDING like we don’t know what Midna looks like (like Sheik is Zelda?!). She is beautiful, and that translates in the manga art style. give that Gal the spotlight, otherwise we wont be seeing that face until it’s all over
as far as Midna and Link go, I’m glad they aren’t sugar coating Midna for the sake of MidLink. I can’t emphasize enough how much they DO NOT get along in the beginning. They are anything BUT a cute couple, and I’m glad they didn’t change that. in fact she’s a bit of a brat in this one, but for the sake of humor, I welcome it. as for any MidLink I have yet to see any clear sign that that’s where the authors will take it. most likely they will (anxiously waiting for that). But for now Midna is just starting to get into the friend zone, fresh from ambiguous-ally zone.
Hc that Natori literally never stops talking about Natsume on the set.
His directors and co-actors and actresses are all just…so sick of hearing about “Takashi-kun.”
Every other sentence that comes out of Natori’s mouth is “Takashi this” and “Takashi that”.
It’s easy to see that Natori completely adores this mysterious “Takashi-kun”, and at first everyone thinks he must be Natori’s s/o.
(The number rumours that sparks is kind of terrifying. Natori can’t for the life of him understand why so many of his male co-workers are suddenly being extra friendly with him.)
But when someone asks him about it one day, the look of utter disgust that passes Natori’s face is shocking.
“He’s 15,” Natori grinds out with a grimace, and the other person hurries to apologize for making assumptions.
After that, the rumours change from “Natori Shuuichi is gay” to “Natori Shuuichi has the biggest little brother complex and it’s the cutest thing ever.”
The number of girls throwing themselves at Natori increases tenfold.
(“A man who cares so much about his family is just the most attractive thing ever,” they sigh dreamily to each other.)
And then, one day, the schools are out for summer vacation, and Natori is absolutely beaming when he arrives on set, followed by a teenager sticking so close to his side that they’re almost tripping over each other’s feet.
The teenager is hugging an ugly cat to his chest, and looking around at everyone warily.
He’s absolutely gorgeous, all lean limbs and soft features. His hair is a stunning silver, and his eyes are only a few shades darker.
He smiles faintly at something Natori says - a smile that could make flowers bloom.
And everyone immediately knows that this is the “Takashi-kun” they’ve heard so much about.
And okay yeah, they can totally understand why Natori talks about him so much. He’s the kind of kid that everyone wants to protect, the kind of kid that you would do anything to make him smile.
(There’s a brief moment of confusion when everyone addresses him as “Natori-chan”.
“To differentiate between you and your big brother,” they explain, thinking his confusion stems from the honorific, and not from the name.
Natsume isn’t sure what to say, but when he sees that Natori-san doesn’t seem too bothered at the misunderstanding, just chuckles and tells them to “back off and give Takashi-kun some room;” Natsume decides to just let it slide.
It’s kind of nice, he thinks, to have an older brother figure.
He gets so used to being addressed as Natori, that when he returns to school two weeks later, he’s almost startled to be called by his real name.)
Magnus as a six year old, looking up to Annabeth even though she’s only a year older, and thinking she’s the coolest person ever. And like for a “people who’ve inspired me” thing in school everyone has these long lists and Magnus legit just has Annabeth and his mom. And he gives the cutest little speech about them.
And Annabeth thinking of Magnus like a little brother and legit only regret about running away was that she’d probably never see him again.
Honestly I have 64 requests rn, and their all cute af but I need more to this series myself. So here you go. Enjoy. (Also I’m watching football and listening to Shawn while writing so it might be complete shit)
It’s time. He’s waited long enough. He’s knows that this is what he wants to do. Their who he wants to spend the rest of his life with.
He’s on his way home from tour. Off for a year, unless something else pops up, like another album.
But it’s time for him to be with his girls. He needs it and they need it.
Usually it’s him surprising Presley. But this time he’s decided to surprise Y/n. He spoke to her boss, and she has a ‘meeting’ at 2.
And he’s walking up the stairs to the conference room.
He’s slipping past her office hoping she doesn’t see him, and he’s chuckling because she’s cursing at her printer.
“Shawn?” Her boss Lindsay asks standing up from a chair in the conference room.
“Yeah that’s me.” He says extending a hand to shake. She takes it with a tight smile and shakes his hand. “Thanks for letting me do this, I wanted to surprise her this time.”
“Yeah, I may be a single heartless bitch, but I couldn’t not let this romantic moment happen.”
If she thought this was romantic, wait till she hears about tonight.
“She’s on her way.” Lindsay says looking at her watch, receiving a text from Y/n. She ducks out of the room and Shawn straightens out the bouquet of roses he’s holding. He stands next to the table by the door, so he’ll be the first thing she sees when she walks in.
Then the door handle is turning, he’s heart rate picks up and he just wants her to walk through.
“Linds, you never said what I needed to bring so I brought the normal papers to fill out.” She says in a rush, looking down at the file in her hand. “What’s the client’s name?”
“Shawn.” He speaks smoothly.
Her head snaps up and her eyes widen.
“What? What are you?” She says, in utter shock.
“Surprise baby.” He says with a smile. He holds out his arms and she drops her file jumping into them.
She’s thanking god she wore slacks today, that way when she wraps her legs around his waist no one can see anything.
“Oh my god.” She breathes, holding him close.
“Got you huh?” He smirks as she looks at him.
“How? I’m so confused.”
“Called Lindsay, I’m your 2 o clock appointment.”
“That makes sense now, she refused to say what the name was.”
“Surprised you didn’t figure it out.” He says grinning.
“Been a little stressed.” She says smiling.
“What?” He says setting her down. “About what?”
“Presley had this project due today that she didn’t tell me about but two days before it was due. I have my own projects to worry about, and you were in Mexico.” She says shrugging.
“Worried about me?” He teases.
“I love you.”
“I love you too.”
He pushes her against the wall, making her gasp. He leans down and connects their lips in fiery passion.
“That shirt looks good on you.” He grumbles as he starts kissing down her jaw to her neck. “Are you wearing my perfume?”
“Yeah, reminds me of you.” She says breathless.
“Fuck it smells so good on you.” He says pressing her against him.
“Shawn, we’re at my work.” She warns weakly. She wants to get carried away with him, wants to be like this with him.
“I know.” He says retracting a bit.
“I’ll get off early.” She says meeting his gaze.
“Good, I’m gonna pick up Pres.” He smiles. “See if I can pawn her off on Aaliyah.”
“Why?” She asks, so innocent.
“I need you, alone.” He says becoming dark, hungry, sexy.
“Oh yeah? Maybe see if Aaliyah can keep till late tomorrow, so we have all night and day.” She whispers, sending chills down his back.
“Fuck.” He groans, kissing her again. She’s giggling before her smart comment tumbles off her lips.
“Got you huh?”
He grins and shakes his head.
“Don’t mock me.”
“Go back to work Slacker, I’ll pick you up at 6.” He says pulling her to him again. Hand firmly pressed against her back. Fingers running over the dimples in her back.
“Okay.” She’s losing her breath again.
“Wear something nice, but easy to take off.” He says lower.
“Okay.” She says completely gone.
“I love you.”
“I love you.” She repeats.
Then in a swift movement he’s no longer in her arms. The roses are.
He’s walking out the door, about to leave when he says;
“Don’t let them die.”
Winking at her and then off down the hall.
“Daddy!” Presley screams as she sees Shawn getting out of his car.
“Presley!” He says, turning and meeting her halfway. He picks her up and kisses her cheek. “How’s my girl?”
“So much better now that you’re home.”
“Good.” He says walking her over to the car. Opening the back door, she squeals when she sees the daises and the stuffed elephant sitting in her car seat.
“I got you the daises, Uncle Geoff got you the elephant.”
She giggles before responding.
“Thanks Daddy.” She says kissing his cheek. He slides her gifts off her seat so she can sit in it. “Can I call Uncle Geoff and thank him?” She says as he starts to help buckle her in.
“Yeah, how about we call him when we get to the nail salon.”
“We’re going to the nail salon?” She asks excitedly.
“Yeah, gotta pamper my Princess.” He smiles, kissing her forehead.
“I’m so excited.” She cheers as he shuts her door, opening his.
“Okay, bye Uncle Geoff.” She says before handing the phone back to Shawn. He clicks the end call and watches as his little girl gets her nails painted a bright pink.
“So I need to talk to you.” He says catching his daughters attention.
“You know that I love your Mommy so much.” He starts his speech. She nods. “And when you love someone as much as I love your Mommy, to prove to the world that you love that someone, you marry them.” He says swallowing his nerves.
“Are you and Mommy getting married?” She squeals.
“Not yet, I have to ask her first.” He says laughing at her reaction.
“But I wanted to ask you first.” He says, making the nail artists heart explode.
“Ask away.” Presley giggles.
“Can I marry your Mommy?” He says holding out a box that holds the bracelet he bought for her.
“YES! It’s about time.” She says exaggerating.
“Good.” He says letting out a breath he didn’t realize he was holding.
“That was the cutest thing I have ever witnessed.” The nail artist says, checking to make sure her nails are dry.
“Thanks.” Shawn awkwardly laughs, placing the bracelet on his daughters wrist.
He pays for the nails and takes Presley to Aaliyah’s apartment.
“Aunt Aaliyah!” Presley shouts as they enter her apartment.
Aaliyah walks out to the front, where the door is, and smiles at her brother and niece.
“Presley? Is that you? I haven’t seen you in forever.” Aaliyah says crouching down and hugging her.
“Ha, Aunt Aaliyah we had dinner the other night.” Presley giggles.
“Really?” Shawn says looking at his sister.
“Yeah met them for dinner last Saturday.” She responds with a smile.
“Awesome.” He says, liking the relationship Aaliyah, Y/n, and Presley have.
“Tonight’s the night huh?” Aaliyah says resting Presley on her hip, grinning at her brother.
“So nervous.” He says rubbing he’s sweaty palms against his jeans.
“Why? She’s gonna say yes.”
“Don’t, you’ll jinx it.” He says warning her.
“Can I see the ring?”
“Yeah here.” He says digging into his back pocket. He’s heart stops when he doesn’t find the box. He reaches into the other pocket, praying, but sighs when his fingers touch the leather of the box.
“Thank god.” He says pulling it out.
“Thought you lost it?” Aaliyah giggles.
“Shut up, I’m so nervous.” He says opening the box.
“It’s just the engagement ring, she’ll get a different one when we get married.” He says quickly.
“Shawn it’s so beautiful.”
“She’s gonna like it?”
“Gonna love it.”
“It’s supposed to represent the knot. You know ‘Tying the Knot’”
“That’s super cute.” Aaliyah says handing the box back to him.
“Can I change here? I gotta go pick her up, and well we live together and it wouldn’t be a date if I went home got dressed and then,” He’s rambling, fiddling with his fingers.
“Shawn, calm down. Go change and take a breath.” Aaliyah says shoving him towards the bathroom.
He changes and stares at the ring for five minutes wondering if he got her the right one.
“Shawn, you’re going to be late.” Aaliyah knocks on the door. He shuts the box and meets her in the hall.
“It will be alright, right?” He says looking at his sister to calm him down.
“Shawn,” She rests her hands on his shoulders. “It’s Y/n, y’all have been together for three years. Practically already married, now she’ll just wear a ring.”
“And be called Mendes.” He says.
“That too, but Shawn. Calm down. She loves you, with all her heart, does anything for you. Just relax, and just ask. Don’t stress, just ask.”
“Okay.” He says starting to walk to the door.
“Put the ring somewhere else, she’s gonna see it.”
“What?” He says panicking again.
“It’s sticking out of your pocket, shes gonna check out your ass in those jeans and gonna see it.”
“How do you know she’s gonna check out my ass?”
“All girls check out their boys’ ass when he wears pants like that.” She shrugs.
“Got experience there?”
“What?” He didn’t expect that answer.
“Go, you’re gonna be late.” She pushes him away.
He kisses Presley and she wishes him luck.
“Here Daddy.” She says putting a four leafed clover sticker on the back of his hand. “For Luck.” She smiles.
“Thanks Baby, have fun with Aunt Aaliyah. Please, not a late night.” He says, eyes flickering to his sister.
“Yeah yeah, I know it makes her cranky. Now leave.”
“Love you too.” He says before walking out.
His heart is in his throat as he knocks on the door.
Knocking on the door to his own apartment.
“Hey.” She smiles, fiddling with her earring.
“Whoa.” He says looking at her.
Shes in a black dress, shows some cleavage, and ties in the back.
It’s already driving him insane.
“Whoa yourself.” She says looking him up and down.
“Yeah, I look like shit compared to you.” He says looking down at himself.
“No you look hot as hell.” She grins. “I love when you wear jeans.”
“Good.” He grins back. “You ready?”
“Yeah.” She says grabbing her clutch.
“You look amazing.” He says taking her hand and twirling her as they walk to his car.
“Thank you, I try.” She giggles.
“You don’t even have to try. You kill me every time.” He says opening her door.
“What happened to ‘She’s not even drop dead gorgeous’?” She’s giggling at his face.
“I hate your puns.” He says helping her in.
“Kills you anyway though.” She says cupping his cheek.
“Mhmm.” He says leaning in and kissing her, calming his nerves for a second.
“Mendes, table for two.” He says, holding her hand, and smiling at the host.
“Right this way.” She leads them down the row of tables to one with a candle lit and white table cloth.
“Thank you.” He says, pulling out her chair.
“Shawn, this is, too much.” She says looking around.
“No, it’s just right.” He smiles, as he sits himself.
“This is amazing. Perfect.” She smiles, and he breathes another breath. Relieved that she thinks its perfect.
They’ve ordered, eaten and now sipping wine, talking. He reaches his hand across the table and takes her hand, interlocking their fingers.
“I love you.” He says staring into her eyes.
“I love you too.” She says smiling. “What’s this?” She asks, exaiming his new sticker.
“New Tat. Like it?” He asks, smirking.
“Love it.” She giggles. “Got a meaning?”
“Yeah, to wish me luck.” He says, knowing now is the time.
“Luck for what?” She quizzes.
“For this.” He whispers, kneeling down in front of her.
Her eyes go wide, and she gasps covering his mouth.
“Y/n.” He starts and reaches for her left hand, which she gives to him. “I love you so much, you mean everything. You are everything. I couldn’t even dream of a better woman I want to stand by my side. I want you. I want you until the end of time. I want you next to me for everything. Y/n.” He’s taking a breath.
“Y/n, will you marry me?” He says smoothly, some how calm right now.
She’s smiling wide, tearing up, and nodding as he opens the box.
“Yes, Shawn. Oh my god, yes.” She says tears dropping down her face slowly.
“Yeah?” He asks, cracking a smile.
“Yeah.” She laughs hysterical.
He smiles wide and slides the ring on her finger. It fits perfectly, it’s perfect, she’s perfect.
“I love you so much.” She says taking him into her arms.
“I love you.” He says hugging her.
Then his lips are on hers and he knows that his life is set, and he couldn’t be happier.
“Take me home.” She whispers.
“As you please.” He smirks, signing the check.
She’s content, in his arms.
She’s in nothing but the ring, but she’s content.
He’s holding her against his chest, face buried into her neck, even breaths tickling her ear. She’s running her fingers through his curls, staring at him.
“I love you.” She whispers, knowing that he’s asleep and won’t hear her.
She couldn’t be happier. She knew she made the right choice when he asked her out, when he asked again, and then when he asked to meet her daughter. She knew he was the one when Presley called him Dad for the first time. If she approved then she knew she chose the right one.
The Master of Diaper - Batmom x Batkids/Bruce Wayne
Summary : It’s a war between your four sons, Dick, Jason, Tim and Damian…To know who’s the best at changing their little brother’s, Thomas, diapers. A rather intense war really, as they all want to become “The master of Diapers”.
Just a short silly fic that came up to me while I was drifting off to sleep. And in case you’re wondering who “Thomas” is, here’s the fic that introduces him : “Shaky steps and bad teaching”. Hope you like it ahem :
The way you wouldn’t let anyone walk on your feet, and use your sarcasms and wits to get out of any “bad social situations” was impressive to him.
The way you always managed to make people around you smile and laugh, even him and your brooding sons, was impressive to him.
The way you always seem to find the right words to comfort someone, or to tell your feelings, was impressive to him.
The way you trained, even harder than him sometimes, was impressive to him.
The way you fought, so fiercely and fearlessly, was impressive to him.
The way you seemed to know everything, like you always had the answer to people’s questions (about ANYTHING), was impressive to him.
And oh if he really had to list everything that he found impressive in you, it would take too many years. Yes, you always impressed your Bruce. Always.
But today, you surpassed even yourself ! Your cleverness, he knew it now, had no bound ! Damn smart woman you were.
What impressed him so much ? The way you so easily manipulated your sons into changing their little brother’s dirty diapers. It was such genius that he couldn’t tear his eyes off of you, admiration shining in his eyes. And the worst thing was, that you didn’t even know you were so awesome, and the only person he truly admired in this universe…Which made you even more awesome.
It was really clever, the way you ended up convincing your sons to take care of their little brother’s, Thomas, dirty diapers. You played on their competitive side. One day, as Bruce was changing Thomas, you just dropped a “Wow, you’re slow, I bet even Damian could be faster than you”, which confused him a little bit. It wasn’t like you to say such things but…Oh, but of course. The boys were in the room, and he swore he saw their ears moving, quite like dogs, as they heard what their mother just said.
It was a smart move really. Right after saying that, and therefor attracting their attention on the two of you, you heavily hinted that it took lots of skills to properly change diapers, and that you’d be impressed if you saw anyone do it in less than a minute…They took it as a challenge. Of course they did.
As Bruce was finishing to change Thomas’ diaper (rather fast to be honest), Damian approached and said :
-I bet mom is right, and I can be faster than you, father.
Of course, now he said that, Tim had to add :
-And I bet I’d be faster than you.
Jason and Dick couldn’t be out of this little game, and felt like they were obligated to say :
-Yeah right you little munchkins, I bet I will do it faster. Hey, stop repeating what I say ! Stop. Stop. STOP ! JASON/DICK ! HAHA ! Erf…
And so it started.
The long race to who was going to become “The Master of Diapers”.
