this may be too long

iamthekaijuking  asked:

The Kaiju in the world of ATOM can regenerate, but how much damage does a Yamaneon infused monster need to sustain in order to die?

A hell of a lot.  The Terror got his legs and stomach caught in a landslide, where they were crushed beyond use, but managed to hang on for a while (albeit with some help from reverse engineered alien healing technology), and Ahuul manages to survive being immolated.

Although it’s really less a matter of quantity of damage and more about quality - specifically, how vital were the organs that got damaged?  Destroying the brain is a surefire way to kill a kaiju in most circumstances (a large burst of radiation can put the healing process into overdrive to compensate for even this level of destruction).  The hearts and lungs are slightly less vital - a kaiju can regenerate them, but if you keep sustained fire on them it may take too long for them to heal and cause death.  Finally, targeting the digestive tract will slow down their healing ability some - while Yamaneon can (impossibly) “create” matter on its own to heal a kaiju, it prefers to instead draw that matter from natural processes like digestion.  It’s easier to convert food into flesh than to do the (normally impossible) feat of making flesh from thin air.

There also seems to be a psychological effect to it - again, the poorly hidden secret of how kaiju work in my setting is the fact that Yamaneon is an intelligent entity that has a will of its own.  It subconsciously communicates with its hosts, and as such a kaiju’s Yamaneon powers are in part determined by how the kaiju perceives itself. If a kaiju thinks it can fly, then Yamaneon lets it fly, and so on.

This means that is a kaiju thinks “well, this should kill me,” Yamaneon will let it die and eventually convert its mass into more Yamaneon.  But if a kaiju is determined to press on - if it refuses to let its damage take it down  - Yamaneon will do all it can to honor that wish.  A determined kaiju is almost invincible.

Say fucking cheese, pal.
We gonna take a selfie.

Warm Me Up part 1

College wasn’t nearly as terrifying as people made it seem. It wasn’t much of a change. At least not for Will. Being independent wasn’t that different from how it was back home. His mom worked all day and he watched his sister while she did, which meant he had to learn to cook and clean and help her with homework while managing his own.

He’d looked forward to college. To being able to be his age instead of a fatherly brother. What he hadn’t looked forward to were the awkward friendless days and lack of transportation or money. He would forget to eat sometimes, but he didn’t want to make food in bulk like he always did because he was on his own. He had no one to share with.

It wasn’t too bad. He was good at socializing, at talking to people he met in the café or on his way to class or in class. They were just never official friends. They weren’t people Will saw himself hanging out with off campus, or people he found himself taking up to his dorm to watch a movie or play a game.

His campus was relatively small. A college that was hard to get into but not very well known. He saw a lot of familiar faces, but none of them had names in his mind.

As he walked with his head bent over his phone, someone rammed into him at a corner. “Oh s-” He stopped when a pair of hands pushed him back and looked up to see a dark haired guy scowling at him through a grunt of annoyance. “S-sorry,” Will muttered.

The guy gave him half an eyeroll and walked away. Will felt his cheeks flare with embarrassment and anger. He shut his eyes and took a breath and kept walking. As he walked into class, a guy he usually sat beside turned to him excitedly.

“Dude!” he exclaimed, taking Will by surprise because he hardly ever initiated conversation if not for a partner discussion. “Listen, the café is having an open mic night and me and buddy are performing. I wanted to know if you’d come to, you know show support.”

“Oh. Sure what time?” he answered.

“Seven. It goes on until nine, but you don’t have to stay the whole time.” Will nodded and jotted it down on his hand. “Thanks, man.”

“Yeah, no problem.” He smiled and turned his attention to the professor as class started.

Will figured it’d be fun to hear people sing and play their instruments at this thing, so he was actually looking forward to it. He was looking forward to it so much, he got there half an hour early and found himself seated near the front, reading a book as he waited.

To me, who was lowly born, she was the sun….” - Guren about Mahiru Maria -
Happy birthday to my sweetest Maria! ♥ (ノ≧∀≦)ノ*:・゚✧

Hey there, YOI fandom!

While we’re all still recovering from that beautiful pair skate and slowly trying to process that Yuri on Ice is now over, I was wondering whether we could put our spare energy into something, that thing being thanking Kubo-sensei for creating this great anime.

And of course, Kubo-sensei wasn’t the only one involved in the project but she’s the writer of the story and most importantly she reads all the Tweets she receives.

Do you know where I’m going with this yet? I’d like us, the fanbase, to organize ourselves and send our thanks to Kubo on her Twitter, but wait, there’s more.

While you can do this in English, I’m quite certain that she might find herself confused at more complex messages or might skip over them because checking what they mean may take too long.

I was thinking of creating a tweet template in Japanese which we could all use (just copy and paste) and send our feelings over to Kubo-sensei. And here I mean more than just thanking her for the anime - I would also like to feature thanking her for Victor and Yuuri’s romantic relationship and a small wish for the next season.

You might think that’s going too far, but from what we’ve seen so far it’s clear that Kubo-sensei aims to please us. I’ve also heard a rumor that she got some homophobic backlash for Victor and Yuuri’s engagement after ep 10 and I would like all of us to reassure her that this is what we want and this is good.

I think most of us would like to have some influence on the creation of the anime and this may just be our time to shine. Through our support we may show the creators that they can commit to Victor and Yuuri’s relationship, that it’s not ‘risky’ or ‘going too far’, that they’re in fact doing the right thing by showing them the way they do. And we can all do this with something as simple as a Tweet.

This is where I would like to ask the Japanese-speaking part of the YOI fandom for help, because I don’t quite have the confidence to write this template out on my own. I’ve created a draft of what I think the message could look like but I’d like to get some feedback on whether it’s correct and clear but also polite enough. It looks thus:

ユーリオンアイスという作品を作って下さってありがとうございました!この作品が大好きです !特にヴィクトルと勇利のロマンスの表現がすばらしくてまだまだ見たいです。第2シーズンで結婚式をお楽しみにしています!#yurionice #thankyousensei

It translates more or less as “Thank you for creating Yuri on Ice! I loved this anime! I especially found the presentation of Victor and Yuuri’s romantic relationship to be amazing and I would love to see more of it. I am looking forward to the wedding in season 2! #yurionice #thankyousensei”

This is just my initial idea (and also it doesn’t need to say “wedding” it can also be “pair skate” or anything else you could want - I could easily translate it if it’s a matter of one word) and I’m more than willing to refine the actual text and the message and just improve it so that it gets our feelings across (while also not sounding like a demand or a joke). I’ll accept any ideas and suggestions, either in reblogs/comments to this post or in asks.

Or, if you perhaps have an idea for an entirely different message to send to Kubo, I’ll also gladly hear it. I just want her to know that she has our support and that explicitly showing Victor and Yuuri’s love (like the rings, for example) isn’t a bad or dangerous idea that could get her backlash, but that it’s what the fans want, and what the anime industry needs.

The Japanese fans will be expressing their wishes for season 2 (including the homophobic ones). Let’s not get left behind and also let Kubo-sensei feel our appreciation for the thing so many of us loved so much in this anime.

Long hair squad 👍 (or, well, ¾ of a squad)

Something we as a fandom may have too long ignored: Holster canonically lived in Waterloo, Ontario for two years playing hockey before starting at Samwell. Right here:

So basically I’m saying

a) He would understand all Jack and Ransom’s obscure Canadian references. Milk bags, house hippos, the lot of it.

b) He has basically been in Ranson’s backyard for YEARS before they ever met.  How would that affect soulmate AUs???
