Cassian Andor: A Character Analysis

Before I begin, I would like to make 2 things perfectly clear:
1.  I am not a therapist or anything like that. I am just stating my opinions/observations/assumptions. None of which need be taken seriously. 
2.  Here there be spoilers.
Now, let’s get started, shall we?

Who he is:

Originally posted by enalgunlugar

Cassian Jeron Andor is a loner; he has maybe one friend at the start of the movie. He is quiet; he rarely says more than needs to be said at any given moment. Both of these traits stem from one: practicality. Cassian is an unbelievably practical man. He doesn’t bother with friends because he doesn’t see the point. He doesn’t get very emotional (even though he does have emotions) because what would that accomplish? He’s a no-nonsense, get-in, get-out, focus-on-the-mission kind of guy. This is likely a result of his childhood (or lack thereof), but it is also not a bad thing. It’s simply the way he operates.

What he is:

Originally posted by fuckyeahrebelcaptain

Loyal. To a fault. Once he decides on a path (or a person), he will not leave it. A long time ago, he chose to align with the Rebellion. And so a rebel he is, and a rebel he will stay. Even when being such requires him to do things he doesn’t want to do. Which brings us to…

How he feels (at the beginning of Rogue One):

Originally posted by krasnaya-ledi

When we first meet Cassian, he is burnt out. He is still a good spy, soldier, captain, ect., but he lacks conviction. He doesn’t fight because he wants to, but because he thinks he has to. To put it bluntly, he’s in a dysfunctional relationship with the Rebellion. (Odd way to describe it, yes, but I’ve been in a relationship like this before. Please bear with me while I explain.) He gives everything to the rebel cause: his time, his skills, his opinions, and, most importantly, his morals. He lies, steals, kills, and/or lets die, if the mission requires it. All the while, he tells himself that it’s not really wrong, because he’s not doing it for himself. He’s doing it for something he cares about- the Rebellion. This does not make his actions right, of course- murder is murder, no matter the reasons behind it. And Cassian feels this, even if he doesn’t admit it. Saying anything he does is wrong is the same as saying the Rebellion is wrong, and that completely contradicts his “Rebellion = Good” mindset, so he pushes his guilt away. He stuffs his opinions, and, at times, gets angry at himself for having them at all. As Chirrut puts it, he is in a prison of his own making. But fortunately for him (and all of us RebelCaptain shippers), he meets Jyn.

What Jyn means (to Cassian):

At first, Cassian thinks Jyn Erso is nothing but trouble. She is reckless, unpredictable, and selfish. In other words, she does what she wants, when she wants. And that is a very big problem to Cassian, who never does what he really wants to do, deep down inside. But as he soon learns on Jedha, what Jyn wants to do is pretty… great. He witnesses firsthand her kindness, bravery, and selflessness as she risks her life for random kids, risks her safety for his own, and risks getting shot for his only friend, a snarky droid. And she didn’t do any of it because she was told to, or because of the mission. She did it only because she wanted to. This awakens something in Cassian. Call it jealously, if you like. He wants what she has- the freedom to do the right thing, even if it means disobeying orders, even if he doesn’t have permission, even if it’s not practical. He wants to be free to choose. In his mind, Jyn quickly changes from a troublemaker to the embodiment of his trapped morality. And that’s when the real fun begins.  

What he’s going through:

Originally posted by tfa

So, as stated above, Cassian is devoted to the Rebel cause. But as the movie progresses, he starts to feel a kind of loyalty to the cause that is Jyn. Unfortunately, these two causes don’t mix well. The Rebellion doesn’t need Jyn after Jedha, and Jyn doesn’t want any part in the Rebellion. And then there’s that whole issue of him being on a mission to assassinate Jyn’s father, who may or may not be a rebel in his own right. Cassian is a good soldier; he follows orders without question. Right now his orders are to kill Galen Erso. But his instincts (and Jyn, and Bodhi, and Chirrut) tell him that his orders are wrong. His interests are divided, his thoughts conflicted, and thus he becomes more and more frustrated. On Edu, he lashes out at everyone around him. But he’s not mad at them- he’s mad at himself for questioning the Rebellion, and he’s mad at the Rebellion for asking so much of him. 

What he does about it:

Originally posted by diegolunadaily

He doesn’t take the shot, obviously. And it’s easy to say, “He didn’t kill Galen because he cares about Jyn” or “He couldn’t pull the trigger because it didn’t feel right”. Both statements would be true. But there’s so much more to it than that. By choosing not to shoot Galen, Cassian finally admits that the Rebellion doesn’t necessarily dictate right and wrong in the Galaxy. He finally allows himself to see the flaws in his “the Rebel cause is always good and perfect” ideology. Finally, for the first time, he goes against direct orders and does what he wants, because he knows it’s the right thing to do. That’s why he looks so distressed on that ridge: he’s just busted through a huge barrier in his subconscious. And you know what? It feels like crap.

What changes:

Originally posted by forcewakens

At first, it seems like nothing is different. Even without his help, the mission is completed. Galen still ends up dead. Jyn still ends up angry with him. And when they fight, he defends himself, although every one of Jyn’s accusations are true. Even (dare I say especially) her Stormtrooper comment. In this one line, she has him pegged. Cassian refuses to admit it right away, but he is very much aware and ashamed of this fact. He is also aware that the Rebellion will never green-light a mission to Scarif with the evidence they currently possess. Thus, he finds himself at a fork in his road: Does he continue submitting to the Alliance, to his commanding officers, to his cause, even if their next decision will be the wrong one? Or does he follow Jyn into what he knows, in his heart, will be the best hope for the Galaxy? Thank the writers, he chose the latter.

What comes next:

Originally posted by rebelcaptained

I see a lot of posts talking about the times Cassian came back to Jyn. But what a lot of people (including myself) fail to notice right away is the most important time- the time he stands in front of her and so many others and says, “I believe you.” All the other times are vital (life-saving, in fact), but this time, it’s different. He isn’t acting on instinct; he isn’t rescuing her; he isn’t making excuses. He is making a conscious, life-altering choice to break free from the Rebellion, from the only life he’s ever known, and take up her cause. Finally, he frees himself from his prison and does what he wants. And the irony is that siding with Jyn is not just the right choice, but the practical and loyal one, as well.

How he feels (at the end of Rogue One):

Originally posted by swr-girl

Content. Yes, yes, I know there’s more going on than that. There’s also sorrow and regret and fear and pain and longing. But Cassian Jeron Andor, the Good Soldier, the Selfless Spy, the Rebel Captain, must’ve imagined he’d die at the hands of the Empire. And he likely begged the Universe more than once to let his death be quick, and let it mean something. Well, folks, now, on the beach of Scarif, it’s his time to go. He knows these are his last moments. He knows, too, that he’s done more for the Rebellion on this day than he had in the 20 years previous. He knows he’s completed his mission; he knows he’s given Jyn what she needed; he knows he’s made the right choice, and that it was his choice alone. He knows he’s dying for the cause he lived for. And above all that, he knows he isn’t dying alone. 

It’s probably not the end he’d asked for; it’s more.

Webtoon Recs  [2/?] The Moon That Rises In The Day

A man stuck in time and a woman who flows with time. The story of a strife that goes back and forth between the present and the past.

The future - and it is showing us this loud and clear

This episode was amazing. After flailing and basically shouting all day I am so happy and so excited that I joined tumblr - the quality of posts today has been excellent, both humorous and inciteful and I LOVE YOU ALL :)

I hope its ok I’m going to tag a few great posts in this to reference as I don’t want to go over stuff other people have already meta-d about so excellently!

This episode, titled the future, seems to me to be Dabb basically telling us what he wants for the next part of the show, the “better way” that he wants to take it.

So here are my main bullet points that I will expand on a little below and link those excellent posts to where relevant:

A. Sam 

Sam is clearly portrayed again, recurrently as the researcher, the “brains” of the operation (before you say ‘Dean is so clever though!’ I’m just pointing out Sam’s love of the scholarly side of things and how this is where he fits). Sam’s endgame must now be to head up the MoL/hunter network in this respect.

B. Sam and Dean 

They work so well as a team here, Sam putting a tracker in Cas’s phone while he’s distracted by Dean, researching v whatever Dean was doing (maybe making a pining mixtape along the lines of “all by myself” and “I miss you” “please come home”, BUT they are shown as different people, with different interests, skills and relationships - with Cas for example, & not codependent. Again hammering this home in this episode. THANK YOU DABB, GLYNN & BERENS.

C. THE RECURRING AND CONSISTENT NARRATIVE OF DESTIEL.

This whole episode is one big love fest. We went from one ‘wow I can’t believe they just did that!’ to the next to the next with hardly enough time for us to catch out breath! WHAT WAS THIS EPISODE?!

OK, so we have :

1. My Romeo & Juliet / Gaze up Trope Balcony Meta.

2. The Mixtape Meta, another EXPLICIT romantic trope by @drsilverfish.

3. The Dean “keep it” parallels, the first one that came to my mind was Arwen (another human+ / eternal being who decided to relinquish immortality couple):

Aragon: this belongs to you.
Arwen: keep it, it was a gift… it is mine to give to whom I will, like my heart.

But also all the other ‘gift’ tropes, the standard romantic trope that when a couple breaks up you return the gifts…. I think Cas wasn’t sure he was going to be forgiven, after Dean’s outburst in the war room, so he goes to return the cassette, but Dean does forgive him nearly instantaneously, which actually makes it even worse that he has to steal the colt straight after…

5. The difference between Sastiel and Destiel again emphasised, more and more this season. I don’t think I even have to detail this, just, basically the whole episode shows this.

6. This magnificent gifset by @magnificent-winged-beast which shows the difference between Dean’s angst at actually watching the colt get destroyed and the potential killing of Cas…

Slight aside - Performing!Dean. 

This magnificent gifset that shows Dean’s facade coming down, he doesn’t even attempt to make it sound less ‘gay’ when he tells Sam that Cas came to his room, played him and took the colt from his secret hiding place under his pillow, he even looks down before he says it like he KNOWS how it is going to sound but says it anyway. 

source: @yourfavoritedirector.

And Sam doesn’t even flinch. YES THANK YOU DABB, GLYNN & BERENS!

4. SO…WHY is Dean still doing everything he did for Cas during this episode and still defending him to Sam even though he appeared pissed and Cas repeatedly betrayed him?

Well, in 12x12 Cas said “I love you”, clearly understood by Dean (and Sam to be directed at Dean). There was no real reciprocation though from Dean, other than Dean family-zoning him and Sam’s fantastic “we are doing this for you, Cas”. 

So regarding Dean, Cas is hurt and believes it isn’t reciprocated. Now Dean is pissed and still using the WE card at every turn, so what is a celestial being to do? Cas assumes this is the end, that there is no hope, he returns the mixed tape. BUT Dean says no keep it, this is NOT the end. 

Cas understands that this is therefore not the end, but it is complicated. He explains that he wanted to “come back with a win for you…. for myself”. He wants this for Dean and for himself, this is very important, everything he is doing now and in the future is NOT all about Dean, there is his own agency and morality involved here too.

For Cas, when it comes to it, he wants this reciprocation of his love of course, but right now he has bigger fish to fry and really he wants to protect Sam and Dean and save the world

Now, going back to the “what the hell is wrong with you man?” followed by an awkward silence…. and where Cas then goes to return the gift. Yes, Cas feels that he has said his piece in 12x12 and is rebuffed, but meanwhile Dean is struggling with what Cas has said and everything else that is going on. He has a lot on his plate, not only Cas but his own personal history, his deep seated issues that he is clearly working on this season (see all the performing!Dean facade crumbling meta going around), his issues around his mother, the BMoL, Lucifer, the nephilim…. I mean that is a lot for an emotionally healthy person let a lone DEAN WINCHESTER.

Dean is trying to say / show how he feels he’s just rubbish at it, but he’s getting better!

“We?” “Yes dumbass, WE.” This is his forgiveness. And it is betrayed just moments later. But does this stop him trusting Cas again? NO.

THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. For their dynamic, to show that they still do ultimately trust each other.

EVEN AFTER EVERYTHING DEAN STILL DEFENDS CAS TO SAM!

Oh, and I just need to add how desperate I am for Sam to turn to Dean soon and just say “No, Dean, this is between you and Cas, stop bringing me into this”. PLEASE I SWEAR I WILL BE GOOD! I mean, how repeated, consistent and out of place it was (I mean, not only to shippers, I think anyone would think it was out of place the way it was portrayed in their personal conversation in Dean’s room) - this has got to be addressed, no?!

 5. A better way

So. What does this mean moving forwards?

Well, firstly, I have moved from being 85% sure Destiel would be endgame to about 95% sure. Lets be real. This episode cements this. Whether you like it or not, it’s happening.

So, what is the better way?

Overall, it seems that Dabb wants to move things forwards. And his key points all season are Free Will, breaking from past repressions and negative influences, moving forwards with what the characters choose and want for their endgame and for sure now endgame Destiel.

I have in the past speculated about quite a lot of stuff, some right and some… still to be seen and some not right, but the overall arc speculation that I saw foreshadowed since early season 12 is RIGHT ON TRACK.

Now, the question is will Dabb go backwards and go to the old, standard SPN ways where probably Dean and Cas will be separated, Cas will be wrong again in his trust in the nephilim - it WILL be evil (rehash of s6 and s8) and he will need to be ‘broken’ from the mind control by Dean in a stronger crypt scene etc etc etc.

Or will he move forwards, onto a “better way”? Will we get another s11 ‘happy ending’? Where it appears all good but there is still stuff going on behind the scenes for s13… Or maybe a not so happy ending but that ultimately will be resolved happily? 

Maybe the baby has it’s grace removed (so glad this is an option it was driving me insane that they hadn’t mentioned it by now!) OR it’s not evil at all! it’s the ANTI-anti-Christ, it chose Cas because he is Lucifer’s mirror in that he LOVES Humanity. I mean, the whole point of the show is agency, free will and not being forced to follow the result of your parentage / past ….especially this season with Sam and Dean’s arcs….

Maybe human!Cas, potential hunter Daddies, Cas staying at home calling Dean while he’s out on MOTW hunts with Sam being all “Dean there’s poop everywhere, I’m sorry it got on your favourite shirt, but please please come home this is so hard!” “OK babe, don’t worry, we’ll be back tomorrow, the case was a milk run!” when actually Dean nearly died and Sammy saved the day and…. etc because really? what are we supposed to think from that motel scene? With Cas smiling all cute and using the world “righteous” when talking about the kids future guardian?! (and Kelly survives if we are going to be extra nice).

Maybe Lucifer will die / be dealt with and it is the MoL that are the big bad next year…..aiding the overall future arc of TFW as leaders of the MoL/Hunter collaboration (Chuck I hope so).

Or will it be a mix of the two?

Well my money is on that it will be a mix….  

DABB IS SHOWING US THE FUTURE Y’ALL. AND THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT.

Hi! I love your art style…it’s given me the courage to start posting again instead of just reblogging everything. (I have already posted a picture of a poster I had done for international women’s day.) I hope to start posting more before my break is up! If not by then than sometime really soon!
Anyway, I love your your Jamilton and Jonsnavi posts. So I thought why not combine the two. This is in fact this is my first time drawing Usnavi and Johan and my first time drawing Jefferson and Hamilton in a lovers light. I love the reincarnated lovers AU with a bit of anguish. I think these two ships could mix well in that universe. And thus this piece was born! Thanks for the ship posts for the inspiration.

2d and murdoc being super protective of their pregnant s/o pls

Murdoc Niccals:

  • He would make sure you were comfortable wherever you went together. He’d buy you lots of cushions, and all the newest technology for pregnancies. You’d insist you don’t need any of it, but he’d do it anyways.
  • He’d be by your side constantly, watching in case anyone got too close when you were out together. Swarming fans and pregnant partners don’t mix very well. He had two people to protect now.
  • Apparently, morning sickness isn’t inclusive to mornings. Who knew?  He’d be there to hold your hair back anyways, no matter what time of day or night it was.

Stu Pot (2D):

  • Oh man, if he was clingy before you’d have never guessed it could get worse. He’d take every opportunity to have his arms wrapped around you until they wouldn’t reach around anymore. Even the task of walking would become more difficult with him dragging behind you.
  • He would love to leave kisses on your stomach (for the baby), and sing to it. He’d even write up some lullabies.
  • He’d give up everything that you have to. No drinking, no smoking, nothing. He’d be with you 100% of the way. You would be his priority and he wouldn’t leave your side for anything.

I love that pasta is basically the only thing Yuuri eats in your fics

IS THIS TRUE?? Anon, since I have an English paper due tomorrow that I haven’t started, and since I’m curious, I’m now going to do a comprehensive study of food (and specifically pasta) mentions in all of my fics.

Five Times Viktor And Yuuri Were Jealous Of Makkachin (and the one time they weren’t) - pasta mentions: 0

  • one vague mention of food, which is never specified

Accidentally Seductive - pasta mentions: 0

  • one metaphor containing food, once again the food is not specified

all the world’s a stage - pasta mentions: 4

  • When Phichit first tells Yuuri about the job they are given unspecified food. 
    • His mind has gone haywire, his heart thumping in his chest. A waiter comes by and sets food in front of them, but he can hardly even see it.
  • Victor and Yuuri go out on a date to a restaurant, but the food is never explicitly mentioned.
  • Yuuri and Victor order and enjoy pizza
  • Makkachin eats dog food
  • They eat chips and salsa while watching Phichit skate
  • They eat popcorn when they watch Phichit skate again
  • They eat Pringles at Victor’s house one time
  • Yuuri was going to get unspecified food when he was intimidated by the paparazzi waiting for him
  • Christophe suggests Victor brings Yuuri’s family food when he’s going to fly to surprise him

  • There is a mention of eating a 32 inch Snickers bar
    • And how would one go about eating a 32 inch Snickers Bar in the first place?
  • There are four mentions of pasta in this fic, although pasta is never explicitly eaten.
    • 1. Victor thinks that anything Yuuri says would sound good. A pack of rabid raccoons? Cruel and unusual punishments? Ketchup and pasta?
    • 2. “Do you feel like Chinese? I could go for Chinese,” Victor muses. “Or maybe just pasta or something. I don’t know. Pizza again? Always a good choice. Oooh, or katsudon. You’ve gotten me hooked on katsudon, I’m afraid.”
    • 3. “I thought he was sick,” Yurio answers. “Relax, he probably had bad pasta or something. It happens.”
    • 4. Phichit is a firm believer in pasta Thursdays, a tradition that is held dear to all of their hearts.

centripetal force - pasta mentions: 4

  • Yurio wants to talk about food bc Victor is annoying him by being smitten™
    • “Let’s talk about food now. I want to talk about food.”
  • Yuuri eats a sandwich at the quad. Phichit also has a sandwich.
    • Yuuri moans in response to the first bite of his sandwich. “I’m starving,” he realizes.
  • Both Yuuri and Victor eat pasta!
    • “I’m getting pasta,” Victor tells him, heading off towards the pasta station. Yuuri gets pasta, too. Then they’re sitting across from each other, except Yuuri has already begun digging into his food, and Victor hasn’t, is just watching him.
  • Yuuri gets Victor a blueberry muffin when he’s hungover after the Halloween party
  • Yuuri brings pastries for Phichit and himself then starts crying while holding the bag

  • Victor is mentioned eating pasta at some point
    • “This is good,” Victor states firmly, digging into his pasta.
  • Pasta Thursday is mentioned to be a thing on campus
    • Yuuri is hungry, one day, so he walks to the dining hall for a late dinner. Victor is working on a project, so Yuuri is alone, yawning with thoughts of Pasta Thursday on his mind.

how the mighty fall (in love) - pasta mentions: 1

  • Victor orders a sandwich and Yuuri orders pasta
    • They sit down at a booth. It’s Italian food, which Victor enjoys. He orders a sandwich, Yuuri orders a pasta dish.
  • Victor has unspecified takeout food in Saint Petersburg

COMPREHENSIVE RESULTS

The most pasta mentions is a tie between centripetal force and all the world’s a stage. However, pasta is never explicitly said to be eaten in all the world’s a stage. As I have continued writing, the pasta mentions have increased, but this is also most likely due to the fact that most of my latter fics are multi-chapter, whereas the beginning ones are one-shots. The fic with the best food, in my opinion, is The Fundamentals of Caring. I do really like pasta.

Fluffy Slime Recipe

There are a few different ways to make fluffy slime (although all of them are very similar) but here is my favorite recipe!

What you will need:

-Shaving foam

-Any kind of PVA based glue

-Contact lens solution

-Lotion

-Foaming hand soap

-Food coloring

-Something to mix in (such as a bowl) and something to mix with (spatula, spoon, etc)

Here’s how to make it!

1. Pour some glue (preferably ½ cup) into your bowl.

2. Add an equivalent amount of shaving foam and mix the glue and shaving foam well.

3. Add 7 pumps of foaming hand soap and mix well.

4. Add two to three pumps of lotion (you can add more later) and mix. 

5. Now it’s time to add the contact lens solution! Start by adding a few drops and continue to add it in while you mix. Once the slime is clumped up, knead it until it is less sticky. Add more lens solution if you think your slime needs it. 

…And you’re done! Make sure to let me know if you have any questions, comments, and/or concerns!

Chibs Telford - Save Me

Requested:

Imagine running away from home in Belfast to live with Samcro because you hate your father Jimmy and miss Chibs. Jimmy comes after you and Chibs helps hide you.

((Mixed two requests together for this because it worked out well!))
________

Chibs was shocked to see you standing there on his doorstep. You were drenched to the bone as the California weather wasn’t the kindest today. He looked at you with wide brown eyes as you looked up at him with the saddest gaze he’d ever seen.

“[Name]? What are ye doin here?”

He asked moving to the side to allow you inside. As you entered he seen the backpack strapped to your back. Your shoes squeaked as you walked inside and out of the rain. Standing there sopping wet to the point where water dripped onto his carpet you looked up at him as he shut the door.

“I couldn’t stand it in Belfast any longer. Da has lost his damn mind.”

You told him. You were Jimmy’s daughter before Jimmy had ever gotten with Fiona. Being born several years prior by Jimmy’s first wife you were in no relation to Fiona or Kerrianne for that matter. And because of that Jimmy always kept you separated from his two girls as he always called them.

Chibs looked at you questionably and it was after hearing what you told him that he put two and two together with your story and your backpack.

“Ye ran away?”

He asked although it was obvious that you had indeed ran. You snorted and slapped your hands against your nasty wet clothes on the sides of your body.

“I’m an adult, I don’t run away, Filip, I leave.”

You corrected him. It was his turn to scoff.

“Aye, I know that. But what I meant does Jimmy know yer gone?”

His question was of course answered with nothing but silence. He looks down at you and you looked up at him and that in itself gave him his answer. Jimmy had no idea that you had left Belfast to come here. Which meant that Jimmy would sooner or later more than likely be coming after you.

“I had no where else ta go.”

You told him. He shook his head and sighed running his hand through his hair. This was only going to cause more trouble for him later, but he knew you too well and cared about your well being too much to just throw you back out into the pouring rain with nowhere else to go.

“Fine. Ye stay here fer the night and we’ll find something fer ye in the morning.”

Chibs told you, seeing the small smile slip across your lips.

“Thank ya kindly, Filip.”

The next morning came and went. You had slept on the couch in one of Chibs’s oversized shirts after forgetting you hadn’t packed anything to sleep in. And throughout the day Chibs wasn’t home much as he was suppose to be out figuring out something that could happen for your living arrangements.

But upon coming home and informing you that he couldn’t figure anything out today you were to stay another night and he’d try again tomorrow.

It had been nearly three weeks since he said he’d start looking for you and yet you were still there at his home.

The only thing he’d managed to do was get you a job working for Gemma in the office and the clubhouse. Although you quickly learned that the crows did much of the clubhouse work there was still times you needed to help clean or restock.

Much like today. As you were cleaning however you heard the door to the club house swing open and a frantic looking Chibs came storming inside and over to you.

“Fili–ah!”

“Come with me, quickly!”

He told you as he grabbed hold of your wrist and drug you back toward the dorms. You stumbled by his harsh tug but managed to stay upright ad he pulled you along with him. As he rushed you inside one of the rooms he quickly looked around the room.

“Filip what’s going – ”

“Get in here and stay quiet!”

Chibs said as he pushed you into Jax’s closet in the dorm that he was currently using. You gapsed as you were shoved to the back and thinking that Chibs had lost his mind he proved you right as he climbed inside with you quickly and closed the door.

“Fi–”

He placed his hand over your mouth as he pressed his body up against you as a signal to be quiet. You felt your face warm as the two of you stood so close to one another. You waited for what felt like an eternity wondering what was happening. And then you heard the door open and your heart stopped.

“She’s not here!”

You heard Jax arguing with someone.

“So you say, Jackson.”

You felt your heart stop as you heard your father’s voice. You looked up at Chibs with what little light there was peeping through the slanted shutters of the closet door. He put his own finger to his lips motioning for you to be quiet.

You heard footsteps getting closer as they walked around the room.

“Why in the hell would she even come here man? She’s your kid, she could be anywhere!”

Jax said obvious anger in his voice as he played the obviously angry part with Jimmy.

“Because she’s always had a thing for Filip. Said she missed him and next thing I know she’s gone.”

You glanced up at Chibs when you heard Jimmy speaking and seen Chibs was looking at you with a rather blank expression.

Hearing the footsteps growing closer you prayed to the Holy Spirit and Mother Mary that Jimmy did not open the closet door.

Hearing the footsteps stop right outside of the closet you waited and waited for the door to come flying open, but it never did. Instead the footsteps left the closet door and back across the room.

“Next room shall we?”

Jimmy asked as the door to the dorm shut closed and you heard both Jax and Jimmy leave.

Chibs removed his hand from over you mouth slowly and looked down at you. You looked at him wondering why it was he was looking at you.

“Missed me aye?”

I believe that this is one of the best His Theme/Undertale covers. It gets me everytime.

(aaaaaaaaaaaAAAA holy crap holy crap)

This is an incredible piano remix of His Theme/ Undertale main theme.  This song flows like a river, with intricate right hand countermelody on top of left hand melody.  Then, a minute and a half in, the full melody comes in, and everything falls into place. 

That piano part is nothing to sneeze at in complexity and difficulty.  It’s quite difficult, but the pianist makes it sound effortless, and the execution here is nothing short of brilliance.  The quiet parts are soulful and lyrical, and the complex parts are steady and determined.  The two mix well together, like a chocolate-vanilla twist ice cream cone for the soul.

Just…  Please,  listen to this song.  I promise it’s worth it.  Cross my heart and hope to die.

Felt like making a fusion! I’ll probably do more (cough cough suggest who you want)
but first up we have Kara and Oso! (Krosamatsu?)
A surprisingly stable duo, when these two fuse their personalities mix well and are definetly the type of guy who could liven up a party
They are however, very needy, and demand everyone’s full attention. When ignored and neglected the fusion tends to fall apart however these two will occasionally form Krosamatsu together just for the sake of comforting each other.

Two Powerful Potions for Flawless Skin

My baby sister has been taking her exams lately, and stress is giving her a nightmare-scenario when it comes to acne and oil. This isn’t helped by her use of concealer to cover the pimples, which is well-known to make pimples worse once the concealer is rubbed off. This inspired me to create a potion for her to use as a way of treating her poor skin, and helping her become stronger and more confident in her appearance to reduce stress and help her do better. Here’s that potion, for those of you who might desire skin that’s smoother, softer, and more easily tamed.

This is a two-part potion! One part is a drink that you should drink morning and night for as long as necessary, and the other is a poultice that you should prepare overnight, then apply to the skin almost like a mask.


—————-

For the drink, you will need:

  • Dried calendula petals (2 teaspoons) 
  • Dried olive leaves (1 teaspoon)
  • Dried spearmint leaves (3 teaspoons) 
  • Dried chamomile flowers (2 teaspoons, not from the supermarket)
  • Honey (1 teaspoon) 

Take a medium sized, thick-bottomed saucepan, and add 500ml of boiling water to it (that’s about 17 fluid ounces). Bring the water back up to the boil, and add the dry herbs to it, then bring the water down to a simmer. Put the lid on the pot, and keep the heat on it for 5 minutes, then turn the heat off and take the pot off the heat. Keep the lid on for at least 30 minutes, then remove the herbs from the water and throw them away.

Pour the mixture equally into two mugs. This should be approximately 1 cup of brew per mug, but a little more or less doesn’t matter. If you want it a little sweeter, add some honey to the brew, but not too much because it’s still sugar! 

Drink one of these mugs at breakfast, and then keep the other in the fridge. Just before bedtime, take it out and put it in the microwave to warm up a bit, then drink it just before you go to bed. You can drink it cold if you like, but trust me it’s better warm.

Drink this potion twice-daily, and over a week or two you’ll notice your skin visibly clearing up!

—————–

For the mask, you will need:

  • Calendula petals, fresh preferred but dried is fine (2 tsp if dried, 3 tbsp if fresh)
  • Dried chamomile flowers (1 tsp)
  • Dried olive leaves (1 tsp)
  • Dried gingko leaves (1 tsp) (Not essential, but very beneficial if possible)
  • Yarrow stalk (fresh preferred, 2 tsp dried, 2 tbsp fresh)
  • If you can’t get yarrow, use the same quantity of thyme. It’s not as good, but it’s quite close.
  • Eucalyptus oil (1 tsp)
  • Cornstarch, a lot, as much as it takes
  • Kosher salt

If using fresh ingredients:

Take the fresh ingredients, and add them to a large pestle and mortar. Put in a couple of pinches of kosher salt, and grind with the pestle until the contents are a sort of paste. Add this paste to a small bowl, and wash out the pestle and mortar. Dry thoroughly. Continue on with the recipe.

If using only dry ingredients, start from here.

Grind the dry ingredients with a pinch of salt until they’re as powdered as you can get them. A small coffee bean grinder might make this faster! Tip the result into a small bowl (with the paste if using fresh ingredients), and add in the eucalyptus oil. Mix this well, then add in two tablespoons of hot water. 

Leave this to sit, covered with clingfilm or a tea-towel or something, overnight. At least 6 hours is necessary, but up to 24 is just fine. Do remember though that it’s not got any preservatives in it other than a little salt, so you might want to refrigerate the mixture if it’s quite warm in your prepping room.

From here, it’s a bit touchy-feely. Add some cornstarch, and begin to thicken the mixture up. Get it really thick, until it’s kind of the consistency of toothpaste. If you want to make it into an exfoliator as well, add some fine sand at this point and mix it in really well.

Smear this mixture over your face in the evening, over the bits that are affected by acne. Leave it on there for at least an hour - it might tingle a bit from the eucalyptus, that’s totally normal. If you like the tingling, you can add some more oil, or you can even put a TINY bit of cayenne pepper into the mix too, which is a vasodilator and will help absorption into the skin. Wash it off like any other facial scrub, and keep the remainder refrigerated until next usage.

Use it daily for a week or more, and it’ll do wonders!
