@atrociouscreations asked for something like, if Percy accepted being a God at the end of the PJO series. And Idk why, but this was the first thing that popped into my head and I had to draw yet. I read awhile ago some headcannons for a dark Percy god, and oh was it so good, that I think some of that was what inspired this…
“I know the truth in your heart. The loneliness. The growing knowledge of your own difference.” He leaned in closer. “The ache of it."
I tried to hide the shock of recognition that went through me. "I don’t know what you’re talking about,” I said, but the words sounded false to my ears.
I tried to turn away, but he reached out and took hold of my chin, forcing me to look at him. He was so close I could feel his breath. “There are no others like us, Alina,” he whispered. “And there never will be.”
I know this has been discussed before but I’d like to point out again -
Here’s Ichigo thinking of the Arrancar that beat Inoue within an inch of her life, tore off Chad’s arm, and nearly snuffed Tatsuki
And he looks…determined. There’s not much emotion here. He looks like he has decided to get stronger to beat them. Which is all well and good, but
immediately after that, he thinks of Grimmjow, the guy that penetrated put his fist through Rukia
and he freaks the fuck out.
His killing intent is so intense that it invokes his inner hollow.
Get your priorities straight, Ichigo, geez, you’re supposed to freak out over your to-be wife, not your bro.
Interestingly, this is later almost exactly duplicated with Ishida when he learns that Inoue was abducted - we get the screentoned panel to show emotion and the close-up on the eye to show anger and killing intent.
