They’ve been more mixed than I thought. At first they were all great and they got at the very best when Jeanne first appeared. Then, next chapter most people were disappointed, sad, angry and felt like leaving the fandom. People are still very feely about the Vanitas and Jeanne scene.
Like yeah, umm, get over it?
I mean, I don’t want to sound rude, but it’s gotten kind of old now.
And to those who want to leave the VnC fandom: If you’re really that disappointed, leave. I don’t think ANYONE should have started the manga expecting a PH feel. As sad as it is, PH is over. This is a completely different manga, different characters, different stories, and probably different worlds. I don’t see the point of expecting things out of characters we just got to know just because of Ph?? THE MANGA HAS ONLY 6 CHAPTERS PEOPLE. It’s so new, it’s like a fetus. why are you judging so soon??? For heck’s sake, I continued PH ONLY because I liked the anime. When I read the first volume of the manga I wanted to drop it, because it seemed weird and not my thing. I bless the anime for making me re-read it, and this time till the end. So why is there a different treatment for VnC?
I don’t know about you, but the way I’ve seen some people treat Jun’s decisions about this manga is like the way half of the fandom treated Kishimoto after the end of Naruto. “It’s for fanservice; It’s for money; They’re screwing up their story”, NO! No they’re not screwing up their story. Mangakas like Jun (and Kishimoto) are professional, they know what they’re doing. They’re writing for an audience that will like the story, not them. If you aren’t happy with some decisions then ok, you can keep that to yourself, or you can express it lightly. There’s honestly no point in bashing on the characters or the mangakas. It’s stupid and childish. You have the right to have your opinion of course, but don’t go force it down on people’s throats. It’s irritating and ruining the fun of those enjoying the story.
I’m sorry for ranting, I’m just sick of hearing people complain about a story that’s new and has so much potential just because it’s not like they thought it would be. Of course it’s not. This is why we’re the fandom. It’s never what we expect, I mean heck, we’re talking about Jun freaking Mochizuki here. We’re supposed to be surprised by the choices that are made, but we’re also supposed to support these choices whether we agree with them or not.
On a side note, there is still a debate about Vanitas and the kiss. Is he a bad person? Maybe, maybe not, we have yet to see. Is he in love with Jeanne? Probably just a crush. Is what he did wrong? Yeah, but it’s a friggin story with vampires. I don’t get why forcing blood out of people by biting their neck is in any way more acceptable than a kiss for shocking the “enemy”. Is Vanitas a psycho? Yes, this one I can fully say, since we saw this at the VERY BEGINNING of the manga, when he said how he wanted to “save them all” while laughing crazily. So Vanitas is a psycho, it’s in his character, get over it. Should he be slapped? Yes, please.
Now about Jeanne. Is she awesome? Yes, yes she is. This doesn’t change despite what Vanitas did. She’s still the Hellfire Witch. Was acting bashful weird for her character? Now this is where people usually mess things up. It’s not wrong. We’ve just got to know her, don’t go acting like there’s already a full manga just about her and how OOC she is. Should we say that Jeanne is weak because of her reaction? No friggin way, no. For all we know, that could have been her first intimate interaction with a guy. Mine sure as hell would be even more awkward.
Then there’s Dominique. Is she a badass? Probably, so far she’s awesome. Is she beautiful? Yes, just like Jeanne, Amelia and the other girls, Domi is beautiful. Is she straight? Irrelevant question, but probably not. Right now she seems very very gay for Nox to me, though it’s probably just a joke from MochiJun cuz I’m sure she’s straight. Are her entrances amazing? Yes, no doubt.
Is Amelia a princess who should be protected? Yes yes, #protectAmeliaRuth2k16 Does she have a crush on Noé? Probably, I do, too.
Is Noé a cinnamon roll? Yes. Is he the best? Yes. Is Noé— Yes.
Just finished watching Aristocats again and all I can think about is winteriron because obviously this ship has taken over my life.
For those of you who haven’t watched Aristocats, it’s about Duchess and her kittens kidnapped and thrown away by the owner’s butler when he heard that the cats will inherit the owner’s fortune instead of him. They met an alley cat, Thomas o’Malley who helped them return to their owner (and flirts shamelessly with Duchess in the process).
And then obviously they fell in love :3
OK now what’s the winteriron AU you say? Well imagine billionaire Tony Stark and his kids (course the AU can have kids or no kids, I’m just a huge sucker for dad Tony). One day Obie overheard Tony telling his lawyer/PA/Jarvis that Stark Industries would stop making weapons, and he arranged for Tony to be kidnapped when he was in Afganistan (maybe the kids are kidnapped too to make sure that SI would fall into Obie’s hands with no heir in line)
The Ten Rings used the kids to ensure Tony’s compliance, but with Yinsen’s help they managed to escape. That’s when they run into Bucky.
Here’s where it can go two ways, either Bucky is a suave playboy informant/soldier/bodyguard-for-hire that Yinsen knew from a friend of a friend of a friend and they hired him to take them back to USA safely under the radar. Can’t risk Obie finding out they’re still alive until Tony is back in the tower.
Bucky is the Winter Soldier who they run into completely by accident, and somehow Tony and the kids manage to trigger a bodyguard protocol in him so now it’s his mission to keep the kids safe
I mean either way they’re completely smitten with each other by the end of it of course.
(The howling commandoes are totally the scat cats, them being a multi-national gang and stuff)
(I can picture Bucky being mesmerized by Tony’s eyes like yep pretty sure that’s a thing right there)
(There was one scene where the geese thought o’Malley and Duchess are married and I can just picture Tony going
Because imagine Tony and Bucky with the kids eating at a diner or something and ppl think they make the cutest family)
(And the ending scene too where they have to say good bye and Bucky is all like ‘well, I guess they don’t need me anymore’ but he came running the moment he heard Tony’s in trouble)
kissing is such a weird/scary concept??? so many people have done it and like… how do you even improve. i feel like my lack of experience is just gonna translate into me being a terrified/bad kisser for like 5ever.
y'all like i literally had a dream last night that someone wanted to kiss me but i was too scared to let them kiss my lips bc i have 0 Clue what to even do this is Real
