Here’re a couple of panels I did for that one coffeeshop AU I could never finish, Mindscape Cafe. It’s supposed to be a 2-part music video but I’m so lame I don’t think I’ll ever get it all done. Consider this a preview then maybe idk ;u; you gotta go full screen to read what Bill wrote
As soon as Even finds out he’s been keeping Isak awake every night for weeks, several things happen. First, the late night noises stop almost immediately and completely, which must mean Even has either put carpet back down like he said he was going to, or just completely changed all his habits for Isak. Second, this lets Isak actually get some sleep again, which his professors seem to appreciate since he stops falling asleep in lectures, and his friends seem to appreciate because they inform him that he’s at least forty percent less grumpy.
Third, Isak starts running into Even everywhere.
They bump into each other at the cafe Isak didn’t know Even worked at, the laundry room he’s never seen Even in before, the bench just down the street from their building, the tram back from University. Eskild keeps inviting Even to movie nights at the kollektiv, and then in return Even keeps cooking them all dinner, and he also starts texting Isak about random little things during the day, which never fail to make Isak laugh and secretly blush to himself and then get teased by all his friends for the besotted way he’s looking down at his phone.
By the time a few more weeks have passed, Isak has to upgrade his feelings for Even from crush to full-on infatuation.
But between Eskild’s never-ending meddling and Linn’s eternal presence at the kollektiv and Even’s roommates, Mikael and Yousef and Elias, being around a lot too, it takes a while before Isak and Even get any more time alone. It’s not like Isak’s angling for anything, but still, if the universe wanted to throw him some kind of situation where he could stare at Even all he wanted and not get caught in the act by his roommates, he wouldn’t complain.
And then, one day, Isak manages to lock himself out.
He doesn’t know how he’s done it – he always remembers his keys, but his keyring broke in his bag at some point during his day at uni, and Isak’s ended up with the key to the outside of the building, but not the one which actually opens the kollektiv’s front door. And Eskild’s at work and it’s the one day that Linn happens to be visiting her family, so he’s just stood there, feeling like an idiot with an armful of organic chemistry books, no coat, and a phone on 2% battery. It’s drizzling outside so he doesn’t even want to go and walk somewhere else, but he supposes he’ll have to, and just take shelter at the nearest coffee shop or force Jonas to take pity on him.
Except, before he can actually turn around and leave, Isak suddenly spots Even coming up the stairs, and doesn’t even waste a second before calling out to him.
“Isak, hey!” Even responds immediately. He looks happy to see Isak – at least, Isak thinks so, although Even’s always pretty cheerful so he could be imagining it. He bounds up the rest of the stairs and then stands a little bit closer than he has to, a little bit closer than you’d probably lean to a casual friend – but then, Isak could be imagining that too. “Shit, locked out? Don’t worry, I do that like, at least once a week. Wanna come and chill at mine until Eskild can rescue you?”
And that’s how Isak ends up in Even’s flat for the very first time.
“Alright Chandler, howwww about… when we get married? Do want to have children?
“Duh. These gorgeous genes can’t just not be passed down. I mean, we need more people like me, even if they’ll never be as perfect.” Heather flipped her hair.
Veronica rolled her eyes. “Ok queen.” She pressed a light kiss on Heather’s cheek. The two were laying outside on a grassy hill, stargazing… well, more or less; it was Veronica’s idea much to Heather’s distaste. Turns out besides staining your clothes, laying on a grassy hill really leads to some deep thinking.
Veronica closed her eyes as she laid back down. She felt comfortable here, just the feeling of nothingness…until she felt a pair of eyes staring at her.
“Can I help you?” She opened one eye.
Heather didn’t reply. She just kept staring, her gaze soft, when suddenly, it hardened. “Mmmso we’re never leaving each other okay? Like you’re fucking mine. We are going to love each other, get married, and watch each other grow old and die together.”
Veronica rolled over onto her side to face the redhead. “Of course. I’m never going to stop loving you, Heather. I love you. Now and forever. Even after you get all old and wrinkly.” She laughed at the last part she added, but was cut short when she received a blow to the shoulder.
“Ew like that’s ever going to happen Ronnie get your fucking thoughts together.” Heather snapped as she scooted in closer to Veronica; a lame attempt at cuddling. As the brunette wrapped her arms around her waist, Heather let out a sigh of content. For now. For forever.
So everyone saying how DB in general can’t raise the stakes any higher than the current ToP because of how grand and big they made it compared to other seasons/sagas, but with the info we’ve been getting from the current arc, that might not be true, so I thought, what would be bigger than a tournament where each universe individually fights for survival?
A Universal rebellion.
To who, exactly, idk the Zen-Ohs, the Grand Priest, angels in general or someone even bigger that threatens the multiverse. And before you try to counter, HEAR ME OUT, I know Zen Oh can erase someone on the spot, but what other being we know thus far that can do that? The grand priest can’t. But he can manipulate Zeno. He can tell him “This universe deserves to be erased” and Zeno will just be like “oh you’re right BEGONE THOT” and zzzzip its gone. But what if because of Goku, this new source of a new perspective and mentality that Zeno ‘discovers’ in a way, he starts to see things different, cuz Goku has that sord of effect on his enemies and such, and Zeno begins to ‘mature’ and think something like “Wait a sec this universe could be interesting, I don’t wanna erase it now! Let me see it first now!” and wouldn’t be so persuaded by the grand priest (also yes this goes with the theory that the GP is behind everything yadda yadda ok), who wants to take control and overthrow Zeno. Also, because of this, the other Angels start to rebel as well and leave their respective GoD to join the GP and plan to destroy the remaining universes because they are too weak or too overconfident or some moral shit like that, but there’s one angel who doesn’t agree with this and SAVES the universes from them, that being our boy Whis.
SO WE HAVE AN ANGEL MONARCHY that wants to eliminate them but they can’t because only Zeno can erase universes, but Zeno is too stubborn to listen to them so they just keep him cornered or something somewhere while the universes try to think “oh shi what now”. And they have a simple solution, an asspull like DBS likes to do, GET THE SUPER DRAGON BALLS AND WISH AWAY THE ANGEL MONARCHY. THING IS, the GP knew they would make that plan, and SPREADS OUT THE DRAGON BALLS throughout the 12 universes (yes this would mean 5 universes would not get a dragon ball but the main chars and audience won’t know which) to make it even HARDER TO FIND and gather them to wish them away. So what happens next
MULTIUNIVERSE SCAVENGER HUNT
And against time until the GP does something to stop them idk
SO ALL THE 12 UNIVERSES will have to band together to collect them and secure their multi universe’s safety, creating separate groups, different team ups, more character screen time, higher potentials, MORE FIGHTS, MORE UNIVERSE/WORLD BUILDING, the animators can go wild with creating alien races and planet environments, even cameos from other character races from DBZ, even GT, development, backstories to chars that didn’t get enough attention in the ToP, explanations to technics and motives, origins, THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS.
I would go more into detail but this really started to sound like a fic that would take twice as long as the entire Harry Potter series SO DONE
THE ASK BOX IS OPEN FOR REQUESTS,,YES. could you please write a scenario in which terushima really likes a girl who helps him study on weekends; she never judges or criticizes him - she's a really kind soul. One day he pours his heart out to one of his teammates about the fact that he's so madly in love with her and yet can't bring himself to tell her cause in his opinion she deserves so much better,,and she overheard this,,confronting him about it the next day like 'omg what a (cute) dork'
Thanks for the request!
You were walking home when you heard him.
“I know it’s lame, but I can’t stop thinking about her.”
You stopped dead in your tracks, recognizing Terushima’s voice. You slid up against the wall to listen.
“Maybe if you spent less time with her, you would be able to think about something else. You don’t even need the extra help, Terushima. You’re in class seven.” That was a voice you didn’t recognize. One of his teammates, maybe.
“I know, but she keeps me focused.” Terushima said. You smiled, knowing that that was no small feat.
“Then just confess to her. And then bring Terushima Yuuji back from wherever he is because I’m pretty sure you’re an imposter.” His teammate said.
“That’s the thing. I can’t.”
“You can’t what?”
“I can’t confess. Not to her.” Terushima said.
“I can’t believe I’m asking this, but why not? You have been talking nonstop about this girl since we left practice.”
“She’s so nice. And I’m…me. She deserves a lot better than me.” Terushima’s voice sounded small and so unlike him.
You turned and walked away, not bothering to listen to what his teammate’s reply was.
“Terushima.” You said, catching him as he was packing his things up after class.
“_______. Are we still on for studying together later?” He asked, bright and boisterous as always.
“Actually, I think I might have to cancel.” You said, and at the sight of his face falling, you almost gave up on your plan.
“Really? Why?” He asked.
“Oh, I have a date.” You said.
He looked absolutely crushed. “With who?”
“No one you know. He goes to a different school.” You were half hoping he wouldn’t call out your blatant lie, and half hoping he would.
His eyes flashed for a moment, then he blinked and his wild smile was pasted back on his face. “That’s great. I guess, I can let you go for one night.”
He gathered the rest of his things, then threw his bag onto his shoulder. “See you later, _______.”
He left you standing there in the classroom, disappointment written all over your face. The disappointment gave way to agitation, and you followed him swiftly out of the room.
You confronted him in the hallway. “Why does that not bother you?”
He turned. “What?”
“Me going on a date. With someone that’s not you. Why doesn’t it bother you?”
He averted his eyes, trying to avoid eye contact. “Why should that-”
“I heard you talking to your friend yesterday. After practice.” You said.
He blushed. “You were eavesdropping.”
“I was walking by and heard you talking about me. Why haven’t you confessed to me?” You said.
“You would just say no.” He said.
“Why do you think I wouldn’t immediately say yes?” You said.
You had stunned him for a moment, so you took your chance. “Why do you think I study with you every weekend? Why do you think I talk to you before and after class? It’s not just because we’re friends, Terushima. Trust me, you would not have to worry about me saying no.”
He stared, eyes wide, until you were done. He moved closer. “______, you deserve better than me. You’re so awesome, and cool, and sweet. And I’m…not.”
“You are all of those things, Terushima. And more.” You said.
He paused, then laughed nervously. “So, about that date. Would you be willing to cancel it for someone who definitely doesn’t deserve it?”
You laughed. “There never was a date. It was always supposed to be you.”
“Well then, I guess I should step up and take you out so you’re not disappointed.” He said. “After practice?”
You nodded. “You know, I think it’s adorable that you thought I deserved better than you.”
“Because I don’t think I could find someone better than you if I tried, Terushima.”
Welp, anon… Most of them? It’d be easier if you asked me the opposite. lol Male idols are controlled as well, of course, but often are more at ease when it’s about being able to joke around and say some snappy things - because it’ll only be considered funny and therefore attractive, but if it’s a girl? How dare she have an attitude? Or, I don’t know, a personality? All artists are
controlled to an extent, but specially female idols are very much so. Most of them don’t show their true selves because they’re not allowed to, and the ones that are constantly only doing aegyo and not ever showing any kind of personal opinion… That’s normally a tell of someone not being themselves on it’s own. If they’re just overall acting like South Korea expects them to, as a submissive and only cute and easily handled girl - then they’re definitely hiding something. It’s totally fine to be cute and sweet but to be it at all times and not explode sometimes specially within the industry that they work with? I don’t trust it at all. But again, it’s not their choice - they’re just severely controlled. I’ll mention three that I’ve noticed from the top of my head but there’s plenty more:
