three way battle

Teeth-Clenched Teamwork

Commander NPC: “While we defend the village, we need you to strike the enemy camp. Our sorcerer can grant you temporary flight and invisibility for the trip there.”

Inquisitor: “So, how long do your spells last? How good of a sorcerer are you?”

Sorcerer NPC: “I’m one of the empire’s best spell casters! I’ve had years of training!”

Rogue: “Yeah, and half of it was just testing blind loyalty to the emperor.” And I turn around to the Commander.

Rogue: “Now I know the Empire is very close-minded about… literally everything, so I want to make ABSOLUTELY sure we’re on the same page: If the kobolds come down from the mountains to help us kill these assholes, DO. NOT. ATTACK THEM. They’re very mistrusting, I barely managed to get a’ maybe’ out of them, and they don’t need the excuse to turn this into a three-way battle. Do you understand?”

Commander NPC (Unimpressed): “I’m a soldier. I know how to work with temporary allies, even if they are among our long term enemies… mafia son.”

Rogue: “Well, if the Empire didn’t want outlaws, maybe they shouldn’t have made it a policy to persecute and slaughter the followers of the world’s most popular religion for the past seventy years. And now, *sir*, I’m going out to do your job for you. You’re welcome.” And I take off.

DM: You jump, but there’s no flight. You fall back to the ground.

Sorcerer NPC: “Oops, I’m sorry, I’m so blind, I must have missed you.”

DM: The sorcerer then casts Fly and Invisibility, as he ought to. You can make a perception check…

Sorcerer NPC: “Sir, can we really trust these people? I mean, they’re criminals! How do we know they’re not going to betray us?”

Rogue: I’m gonna double back to tap him on the shoulder…

Rogue: “Hey, if I really wanted to do anything to you, I could have done it right now. I’m off to save the world now! See ya fucker!” *peow!*

Skald: Wow. Talk about needing the last word.

The finale ends with a three way Battle Royale between BarryLup, Magnus, and Lucretia for custody of Angus. (Carey and Killian are more comfortable being cool aunts. Taako knows that whichever one of these fools wins he’s still getting significant Angus time guaranteed, because none of them are ready to raise a child, and is therefore happy to spectate and egg on all of them.)

Pros and cons of each potential guardian(s). 

Barry and Lup: Upsides, two of them. Super smart and kind of itching to settle down after some traumatic experiences. Domestic as hell but still exciting. Downsides, DEAD. 

Magnus: Upsides, can keep up with a growing boy, a little more of a love and enthusiasm type guardian. Ready to get six dogs and a house with a front yard. Downside, not at all “responsible”. Still sometimes forgets how old Angus is. 

Lucretia: Upsides, can keep up with a child genius. The only person who reliably remembers that Angus is eleven. Already did some paperwork to be legally in charge of him when he came on the moon. Downside: Deepseated emotional issues and guilt complexes to work through, Lup keeps joking about getting her a Life Alert. 

It ends up being more of a competitive board game tournament/drinking game. Everyone cheats. Four shots in they’re planning a shared house with secret tunnels inside. Angus has six bedrooms. Taako sneaks off and goes straight to the source with tried and true tactics, like cookie bribery, just to make sure he’s still the kid’s favorite. 

Tekken 7- conclusion? (warning spoilers!)

Hey guys, I’d like to take a second to point out that this entry will have spoilers of the game’s story, along with a ton of my thoughts and ideas. So, if you haven’t played the game or haven’t finished story mode and all the character episodes and you want to remain unspoiled, I’d suggest not reading any further. Alright, with that disclaimer said, let’s get into the meat of this!

———————-

First and foremost, I’d like to say that this game, was as every bit of awesome as I knew it would be! The fighting is so much fun and playing through story mode felt pretty immersive. The one solid thing that bothered me the entire time playing through the story was however….

THE NARRATOR! OH MY GOD!!!!

Could they have picked a more droll, uninterested sounding VA? The man came to find his home burned to the ground, losing his whole family and sounded completely disinterested! You’d think when you say “I found everything burned to the ground, I had lost everything.” That you’d say it with Feeling, emotion, to sound devastated, not like someone who was bored and reading out lines. That guy had NO soul, which made you feel unsympathetic, and more annoyed with him than anything. Most people thought that he was a useless faceless man, who could have been omitted and while I agree he wasn’t at all interesting or, well anything, I understand the reason for a ‘3rd’ party to relay to us what’s happening on both sides. To be honest, I would have preferred and could honestly see, Lei Wulong being the detective in this case and going back and forth trying to get down to the point. THAT would have made more sense to me than…this man. Ugh!

Despite his annoying voice and voided soul, I went into this game with extremely high hopes that once and for all, we will see who comes out victorious through this three way battle between the Mishima family. We were going to see the origins of Devil, find out Akuma’s ties, and maybe, just maybe, end the story; afterall, they said it was the end to the Mishima saga. If you were like me, and thought all of these things, you might find yourself a bit disappointed. Here are my thoughts of what I discovered playing the game.

#1. Jin

I know what many are saying “they delivered exactly what was promised, the fight between Kazuya and Heihachi, the Mishima Saga came to an end.” And to you I’d say 'You’re right! They finished that long battle…however they made it sound like it would be the end of the battle between ALL 3 fighters, and one way or another conclude this ongoing fight.’ In many of the trailers, they showed, Heihachi, Kazuya AND Jin. In Tekken Blood Vengeance, (I know it was only partially cannon) the fight was between all three of them. In Tekken 4, it was Jin, Heihachi and Kazuya. The three of them had their beef with each other, and yet, Jin was completely omitted in this case. He spent most of his time unconscious until the very end, after the credits, he walks up and states that HE will be the one to kill Kazuya.

The ending left me feeling like this wasn’t the conclusion I had hoped it to be. If anything, they should have said “The battle between Heihachi and Kazuya will finally come to it’s conclusive end.” (Ok, I know that’s a much longer title than conclusion of the Mishima saga) but STILL. Many others, including myself, wanted to see Jin’s role in all of this. We wanted to see Jin rise from the ashes and take a part of this battle that no doubt has included him since his beginning, but he was out of it most of the time. In the end, Lars tells Jin that he’s the one who sent the world to hell, now it was his chance to save it and put a stop to the war he started. Jin acknowledges that he has the devil’s blood coursing through his veins, and rather than sounding disgusted by it, seems to come to terms with it, and states he must be the one to kill Kazuya.

THE END. Yep. That’s it’. Kazuya kills Heihachi, throws him into the Lava, and now it’s Kazuya and Jin, both halves of the Devil, now they have to duel it out, but you don’t even get to see that! Jin may not have Mishima in his last name, but there’s no doubt he has the Mishima blood in him, and he would be fighting Kazuya MISHIMA. So…I feel the “Mishima Saga” isn’t totally over, unless they meant it more as the father and son grudge between Heihachi and his son. Maybe now it’s the “Devil Saga”? Either way, it took 10 years for Tekken 7 to come out after 6, with one game in the middle that came out, with TTT2 coming out 4 years after 6. Judging from that, it would be 2021 till Tekken x Streetfighter and 2027 till Tekken 8 if they continue that path! AGH!! I just can’t wait 10 whole years to see the next CHAPTER in the game. ;-;

#2. Kazumi

In the game, Heihachi sits you down and explains where it all started. It’s like every cute love story: Boy trains in his dojo, girl spars and trains with him, they grow up together and fall in love and have a happy family. Then Girl goes after her husband with intent to kill him because, that’s why she married him in the first place, yes, it’s a classic love story.

Honestly, I was a little confused, and maybe it might just be me, but I don’t understand why Kazumi flipped. Her clan apparently had this 'devil gene’ within her, and their sole mission is to rid the world of 'scum’. She somehow, before any of it happened, KNEW that Heihachi and Kazuya would bring the world to ruin? She wanted to kill the man she married and their son together because they would destroy the world, and she knew of this before hand? When Heihachi even questioned her about it, she said “What do you think I married you for?” Meaning, she had to have known this before she even married him? Then WHY would she bother having a child with him if she knew she was going to kill her husband and her son? It seemed that she loved Heihachi, but she said it was fate, that she had to take him out. Honestly, in my opinion, if she hadn’t gone batshit crazy and turned into the devil, he probably would have been fine! Maybe it was something she couldn’t help? It did sound like it came upon her all of a sudden and then she came to, she didn’t remember any of it. It’s really hard to tell with that.

#3. Lars

Can we just take a moment to note that Lars’s soul reason of existence is because Heihachi knocked up a woman to prove he didn’t have the devil Gene within him? Yeah…that’s pretty messed up….XD

#4. Akuma

Akuma’s appearance in the story line lead many fans to wonder and theorize what connection he had to the Mishima family and to Kazumi. Honestly, the game didn’t really give you any indepth reasoning. Akuma owed a debt to Kazumi and said he’d carry out her wish to kill Kazuya and Heihachi. That was it. He didn’t say what kind of debt, why he owed this debt, or how he even KNEW Kazumi. What you saw in the trailers is pretty much all you get. He fights Heihachi and Kazuya, and despite how much they ask for answers, they don’t get much. It…almost felt unnecessary, story wise, to throw him in there when they could have omitted that part out. That being said, I thought it was kind of a cool idea and that was an interesting way to introduce a new character (maybe even test out how Tekken x Street Fighter would look) but from a story view, I wish they would have done more.

#5. Claudio

Harada and the others had said that they wanted to create a group of soldiers that could defeat the devil and wipe out the devil gene, but instead of a whole group they created one man, Claudio. Claudio has the power to defeat the devil! CLAUDIO CAN TAKE OUT DEVIL. It was such a big thing to put in, yet his whole part in the game was little more than, “here is Kazuya, work with Me (Heihachi) and I can destroy him.” That…was it. He didn’t fight anyone other than Heihachi, he didn’t have much of a point, and didn’t have his exorcism powers utilized. It made me wonder, why did they throw in Claudio when they hinted that there was something about the Kazama bloodline that could 'remove’ the devil gene? And if you play Claudio’s character episode, you learn that he’s got something up his sleeve, that he plans to lure (at least Jin) out and get rid of the devil within him.

This honestly got me excited! I thought, “Oh my God, Jin could be cured of his curse?! Could Claudio be the answer he had long awaited?” Hell, he could possibly even take the Devil out from Kazuya, which would either…Kill Kazuya or maybe take away that side of him, leaving him and Jin, only human. Either way, he didn’t get much use within the story. =/

#6. Character Episodes

This was one of the more, disappointing parts of the game. The character episodes were just that, small, little episodes that left you more curious than feeling that they accomplished or, did anything they set out to do. If anything, I feel a couple of them could have been moved into the main story and would have made perfect sense. Win or lose, many of them had the same outcome, which wouldn’t have impacted the story in any negative way, only helped to progress it.

Like Hwoarang for instance: He meets Devil Jin in the middle eastern Market, they have their battle, and then they’re attacked by the Tekken Force and Hwoarang pushes him out of the way. This happens in his win/lose battle, so they could have easily put that in before Lars comes in to try and save Jin. Same thing with Xiaoyu and Claudio. If Xiao win’s, Claudio agrees to have her join him, saying “I was hoping you’d say that”, in a very sinister way. If Claudio wins, he looks to the unconscious Xiaoyu and states that he would have her join him, because she would make an excellent bait for his prey. They could have easily put that into the story since it happened during the part where Heihachi mentioned Jin and Kazuya. So yeah, it would have been nice to see some of the characters get a chance within the main story since their story was technically tied to it, especially Xiaoyu!

And while I’m on the subject, let’s talk about Xiao~

I was so nervous and excited because I thought she was going to play a part in the story, it sounded as if she was going to get her chance to do something and actually approach Jin, but it fell flat. Yeah, it’s a bit upsetting, but her character episode seems to hold promise for the next game anyway. Win or lose, it has the same ending, which makes me believe that canonically, Claudio recruits Xiaoyu in his attempt to take out Jin and Kazuya. If this is true, the next part of the story is going to hopefully give her a pretty major role! If she willingly goes with Claudio, what would happen? Would she join him in searching for Jin, and try to approach Jin and stop him from killing Kazuya? We all know that Xiao wants to STOP Jin, and what most people don’t like about her is that she’s always trying to get in Jin’s way. People HATE Xiaoyu because she’s constantly searching for Jin, because she wants to stop him…from doing something bad. Xiaoyu knows if Jin goes through with killing Kazuya, he would lose his humanity, he would end up just like the very devil he tried to avoid becoming. Xiaoyu may be a bit naieve, but she’s not stupid. She knows that there’s dangers and she knows that he has to do right, but killing and going through these ways of his isn’t the right way. Would she willingly let Claudio attack Jin? Would she try to reason with him? Would Claudio just use her to track him down and then attack Jin?

What if he has her as some sort of captive and broadcasts to Jin that in order to save her, he has to come get her? Granted, it would be cool as HELL to see Jin go after Claudio to save Xiaoyu, but we all know Xiao isn’t that weak. Maybe he might say that he has her, obviously he wants to use her as bait to get to Jin, so Claudio knows that Xiao must mean SOMETHING to Jin to use her as such. Either he would have to go and save her, or perhaps, like Anna did with Xiaoyu in Blood Vengeance, use her to keep tabs on where she is, so when she finds Jin, he knows how to get to him. Either way, there’s so much potential and I hope that somehow, they explore the opportunity! I hope in the next storyline, she finally gets to have her hand in 'saving Jin’. Those two have been fighting for a means to an end for so long, always missing their goal, always running in circles and finding more obstacles in their way, I just want them to finally be happy! Maybe Claudio can rid Jin of the devil within him, maybe Xiao will fight and challenge him like he said in Blood Vengeance and help him. Either way, I think it’s time she gets her chance to have a pretty big role! I just hope, she doesn’t die!

———–

Well, those were some of my thoughts on what I experienced. Other than those little nitpicks, I LOVED the game! It was a long time, but so amazing! The smooth transition from the cinematics to the fighting made this so great. The music was deep and immersive, the clips of flashbacks during intense moments made it feel like you were watching a movie while playing and tugged at all your heart strings. Other than the few gripes I had with the story, I loved this game, and I will continue to love Tekken! It’s been with me since I was 9 years old and I am 30 now. I hope I won’t be 40 to see how it all ends and actually get to see the real conclusion sometime soon. It would be amazing if the rest was in DLC, but I guess we have to wait for the 8th installment.

anonymous asked:

follow up to that kid ask how would they be as daddies? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Edd: He’d be the kind of dad that would be a part of every stage in his kid’s life.  He’d go to every sports game/rehearsal/etc., he’d wake up super early so he could be the one to prepare his kid’s lunchbox for school (letting his s/o sleep in if they don’t have to work).  He’s that dad that, even if he barely had the funds for it, would drive his family to Disney World for a whole week (Matt probably stows away in the trunk cause like HELL he’s missing out on meeting Goofy).  He would also love to sit down and relax with his kid, pop open a few colas and play some multiplayer video games together with his s/o either sitting and watching or joining in for an epic three-way battle. Also SUPER big about dad jokes.

Tom:  Super grumpy.  He’s the dad that you think is sound asleep on the sofa, but when you try changing the channel just wakes right the fuck up and gives you a stink eye.  He’s his kid’s bodyguard, chauffeur…he’s always there when his child needs him and sometimes even when they don’t.  Probably slapped a Capri  Sun out of some kid’s hands when they tried offering it to his child with the excuse “little bastard probably spiked it”.  If someone broke his child’s heart, he’s be right at the douchebag’s doorstep with a baseball bat.  Hate’s bringing his kid around his friends because he’s afraid Edd’s dad jokes may rub off on them.

Matt: He’s all about dressing his kid up just as “fashionably” as him, putting bows in their hair and teaching them the ins and outs of makeup.  If anyone picks on his male son for wearing bows, dresses, makeup, etc. he’ll go Donkey Kong on them.  Nothing wrong with a little well applied foundation and concealer, dammit (he’ll even go out with them in a full face of makeup and short dress if it gets to that point).  Unfortunately, helping with school work is out of the question. He still wonders how HE graduated high school. So, he’s mostly rely on his s/o for the kinda thing and will call on them all sheepishly when their kid asks for assistance on something even as simple as “x=3+8″.

Tord: His s/o is going to need a helluva lot of patience to raise a kid with his man.  He doesn’t know shit about raising a kid and relies mostly on the assistance of his army men to do even the littlest things like burping the baby because Tord’s afraid he’s going to get puked on or something.  His s/o may one day force Tord to spend some time with their kid, and that day will pretty much just be Tord showing his child around the ammunition, obstacle course…y’know. A bunch of things that would be considered death traps by normal parents.  That kid is gonna grow up knowing everything about weaponry and military strategy, so if someone tries to bully them in school either the kid is gonna kick their ass or big papa Tord is gonna come into class with a fucking tank.

Crash.

A Noblesse Fanfic.


Crash!

Frankenstein’s gaze shot to the door of his room, a deep frown appearing. It was rare that someone broke something in his house, he thought as he opened the door and started walking toward the source of the noise. The kids knew better by now, and the five werewolves that had been recently added to the household were still wary of him. Not to mention it was very late at night. The only person who was usually still awake at this time was –

Master!

His pace quickened until he was almost running toward the living room. Master was severely weakened. Had he dropped his teacup again? It had sounded bigger than that though. He could hear muffled noises coming from the living room as well. Had someone been in there with him? Had he collapsed?!

Frankenstein raced around the corner. And then pulled up short, for a moment unable to comprehend what he was seeing.

There were six large wolves in his living room.

A brown wolf and dark grey wolf were play-fighting near the kitchen, snarling and biting and clawing at each other, neither inflicting serious wounds but neither backing down either. As he watched a yellow-furred wolf joined the fray, taking the other two off guard and succeeding in pinning the dark grey wolf. Until the brown wolf charged into the yellow one’s side, knocking him into the cabinets with such force that –

Crash!

A large plate fell from the drying rack and shattered, joining the remnants of at least one other dish on the floor. Frankenstein was too confused to be upset, but he did make a mental note to be upset later. His shoulders even relaxed a little as his brain quickly caught on to what must be happening.

The wolves took no notice of the broken dish, continuing their three-way mock-battle, moving from the kitchen to near the fish tank and back again, causing another grey wolf to constantly sidestep out of their way so as not to be caught up in the fight herself. As the fight moved into one of the hallways a reddish-orange wolf – Garda – left her post near one of the couches and herded them back towards the living room like unruly children. Which to her, Frankenstein supposed, they all probably were. The second grey wolf, Lunark, huffed as she laid down next to Garda, who had sat down once more near the couch. Clearly she was not amused by the boy’s wrestling.

Frankenstein turned his eyes back to the three battling wolves. M-21 was doing quite well, he noted with a hint of pride. He had far less experience than the others two wolves, but he was quicker than Kentas. More and more of M-21’s attention seemed to shift to Dorant as the fight went on. All three of their teeth were bared, growls issuing from each snout. M-21 pinned his ears back and leapt at Dorant, fangs coming close to Dorant’s neck. The yellow wolf responded in kind, coming in low to attack M-21’s exposed stomach. Kentas had backed up, still on guard, but not attempting to interrupt or re-join.

This didn’t look like a mock fight anymore. Frankenstein moved forward a step, debating whether or not to bring Dark Spear into this to break it up, but it turned out that his help was not needed.

A very large, silvery-white wolf launched himself off one of the couches and crashed into the two fighting wolves with such force that they were both thrown off their feet. The two wolves snarled viciously at the newcomer, adrenaline and testosterone seemingly preventing them from taking in said newcomer’s power, but before they could react much more Muzaka pinned both of them to the ground and snarled, moving his fanged snout close to their exposed throats. Both wolves’ ears perked up and their bodies stilled and relaxed slightly, no doubt reacting to the threat of the much stronger warrior. Satisfied that they had both come back to their senses, Muzaka let them both up and turned back toward the couch.

Frankenstein nodded, glad that Muzaka had stepped in and stopped the children’s fight without having to hurt or humiliate either of them.

He felt Master’s presence and turned to see him standing behind him in the doorway. “Master,” he said with his hand over his chest. “I don’t supposed you know what’s going on, do you?” he asked amusedly.

Suddenly Frankenstein’s legs were swept out from under him, and before he could recover his balance he had a large, fluffy, heavy M-21 in his lap, who was trying his damndest to lick him on the mouth. Frankenstein spluttered and held M-21 back at arm’s length. The slight rejection didn’t seem to bother M-21, however, if his exuberantly wagging tail was any indication.

Apparently aware that they had company, the other wolves came over to investigate. Most of them kept their distance, except M-21 and Muzaka. Muzaka bounded over to Master, tail wagging, and stood on his hindquarters so that his front paws were on Master’s shoulders. Thankfully he didn’t try to lick his face, but Frankenstein still paled as he pictured those claws ripping and dirtying his poor Master’s clothes. His Master didn’t seem to mind. Nor did he seem at all perturbed by the events taking place.

Master simply smiled softly and patted Muzaka three times on the head, which seemed to be what Muzaka wanted since he placed his front paws on the ground and plodded back over to the couch.

After watching Muzaka and Master intently, M-21 copied Muzaka’s action, first with himself (Frankenstein had taken the chance to stand up when M-21 began observing Muzaka) and then with Master.

“When the moon is completely eclipsed, werewolves are capable of changing into wolf form,” Master said as M-21 ran off to continue his game with the other wolves. Frankenstein quirked an eyebrow at his Master’s statement even as he nodded. He knew little about werewolves, especially when compared to his knowledge of humans or Nobles, but Muzaka had been his Master’s friend for many, many years. It was not surprising that Master knew of this ability. He would certainly have to keep it in mind for the future though, if only so he wouldn’t lose any more dishes.


A/N: This idea came to me when I saw that there are a few lunar eclipses coming up, as well as a post of a wolf that @pandora-twists posted lol I wrote it super quick and really didn’t get to edit much (which is really weird for me!) but it’s really late and I’m exhausted. So I’m just gonna throw this at y’all and run away. Maybe tomorrow I’ll come back and edit it. So let me know if you see any errors!

Hope y’all like it!

anonymous asked:

Can you do Sorina's first kiss? :)

Thanks for the prompt! I was deliberating between two ideas for a while, but I finally decided on this one. 

Erina had always been an astute student of love. She spent much of her fleeting free time perusing the pages of romance manga. And even before that, as a child, her favorite stories were those about brave princesses saving the helpless knights—and sometimes, on rare occasions, the reverse.

She knew all the signs. When you found the person you wanted to fight for, the one who gave you energy and finished your sentences, you were in love. But the manga and the stories and the drawn out princess movie franchises had never said anything about finding the person you trusted with your masterpieces—the one who knew which garnish to use on your rack of lamb and added red wine to the sauce while your back was turned.

It was alumni weekend at Totsuki, and as the second seat (who did essentially all the work of the first seat) had more than enough work to attend to before Isshiki made a proposal that none present could bear to refuse.

A three way battle between the first and second seats of the 90th, 91st, and 92nd generations. Each team would have four and a half hours to cook a seven course meal that would be judged by the three highest authorities in the Totsuki network.  

Erina knew from the start that as current students they were at a disadvantage in terms of experience. That besides, Isshiki and Kinokuni Nene were on speaking terms again, Eishi and Rindou engaged to be married. And she and Souma were…

To be determined.

Yandere rung is possibly the only yandere I will ever love. I just love how smug he is when he's ahead of everyone and I and now becoming obsessed with Rung vs Nightbeat vs Getaway :3

Yeeeeessssss!  Feel the yandere!  Let it consume you!  XD

Oh man!  A three way battle of wit between Rung, Getaway, and Nightbeat would be absolutely terrifying!  Lives will be ruined!  Souls will be crushed!  There is no escape from the sheer amount of combined manipulative creepiness that awaits you!!!

blunkler  asked:

I kinda wanted to watch Sailor Moon recently, mainly because of an ex-girlfriend who really loved it, and I had the same trouble with the whole 2 episodes in problem. Could I trouble you for the list for the original series?

Sailor Moon Episode Watch List

==> I highly recommend watching these in Japanese, as the English version is “edited” [slaughtered to within an inch of it’s life] and the voice acting is painful. Whereas the Japanese voice acting is superb overall.

There is, however, a new Viz English dub in the works that is supposed to be completely uncut, and I’ve heard the voice acting is pretty good too. So if you really need it to be in English you can try that maybe? But I don’t know how far along they are with dubbing yet.

**note** some episodes i have omitted because they have ONE key important moment but it’s not worth the whole episode. i have written the key piece of info in place of the episode title and have it crossed out because *spoilers*.

also if anyone notices anything that needs fixing or is confusing because of an omitted piece of info, please let me know and i will try to fix any problems. i have tested the first 3 seasons so i’m fairly confident with those. the last two seasons i got from another person’s list though.

[This arc is ok but honestly not worth the time it takes to watch it. No relevance to the actual plot or original story at all. the only thing of note is that sailor moon gets a new transformation, which is a neat episode but not worth watching the whole arc for. you’ll see the new transformation in the next season anyway]

—————

[at this point you can choose to watch season 4 or read the manga. without the filler this season is pretty good if you can deal with all the NEIGH (also very amusing overall if you’re a homestuck). but there is LOTS of filler jammed into the plot eps].

==> also i would recommend reading the manga from the start, not from the end of the last arc. it’s only 12 volumes long and because some of it is SO different from the anime [especially season 1], you can’t really start from the middle and know everything that is going on [even if you did watch the anime].

anonymous asked:

i saw you reblog that ask about lady vader, i just wanna know if you have any thoughts about her? or even just a female anakin??

I have so many thoughts about so many things. And this is going to be a long ask so I’ll preface this by saying: Lady Vader is a different character to me than female Anakin Skywalker. These are two different concepts in my head. 

LADY VADER:

  • Anakin Skywalker born with a vagina and a womb, but zhe is only female when they feel like it. Most of the time zhe identifies as a male, right up until they’re forced to be Lady Vader by their Master.
  • Lady Vader still needs the suit, but Sidious spent the money and time to fix Vader’s face so that it is flawless and can be seen by everyone.
  • Lady Vader’s face is beautiful and never bares any scars or wrinkles. Sidious even made sure to give her blond hair, but it’s artificial hair that was literally plugged into the dead skin on her scalp. (As Anakin, zhe had brown hair that was lighter under sunlight but since zhe lived primarily on Coruscant their hair darkened. But apparently Master liked blondes.)
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi fought Lady Vader while she was eight months pregnant. He cut off both of her legs and her other arm and dragged her out of the lava when she slid into it to save her children. He cut them out of her as she screamed under him and he hated himself every moment of it.
  • Padma Amidala was Anakin Skywalker’s secret husband and the father of their children.
  • Lady Vader woke up when the suit was being installed into her and Master told her that Obi-Wan had taken her children out of her to kill them. She couldn’t feel them at all and couldn’t feel Padma so she believed him – after all, her husband was dead so clearly their children must be dead too.
  • Lady Vader hates her artificial body because Sidious totally sexualized her suit because he’s a creepy motherfucker. Anakin Skywalker didn’t have a very big bust; Lady Vader has a very large one that has the control panel built into it.

anarielle  asked:

Hello! I was the anon who asked about the magizoologist!Graves yesterday (I'm a bit shy so I thought I'd ask anonymously first ^^;). But I just wanted to let you know that I was super excited to see your reply after getting off of work (being an auditor is not fun) and it actually made my day. :D Thank you for being so awesome and looking forward to seeing the other chapters! ^^

Hallo! Nice t’meet you, please don’t be shy (and oh good grief, your avatar is adorable) and I’m glad to be making days for you! Though sad to hear that auditoring isn’t fun.

I have no idea exactly what kind of auditoring you do (or really what an auditor does? Financial magic wizardry to make numbers do the thing? Something like that) but if your job is being boring, consider this:

  • Graves receiving a memo during his first year as the department head asking where his budget report is.
  • Graves sending back a memo saying that whatever a “budget report” is, it isn’t his, and he isn’t responsible for it, and if they’re talking about the weird artifact the aurors confiscated from that scourer the other week then absolutely no it didn’t animate itself and escape down a toilet so really he doesn’t see why he’s being brought into this.
  • Graves receiving three memos asking what the fuck artifact and which the fuck toilet plus a fourth memo with a blank budget report attached and a pointed reminder about paperwork.
  • Graves pointing out to people that he just said it didn’t animate itself and escape down a toilet, calm the fuck down but also maybe avoid the mens’ on the fourth floor. Also no thank you to the paperwork, it disagrees with him.
  • The head of Magical Transport (Macfloosa as it’s more commonly known) marching up to Graves in the atrium and informing him that “releasing a dark magic artifact in our toilet is a clear declaration of intent and we will not stand for this” while Graves walks backwards and politely informs the woman that she’s “overreacting and anyway it’s not your toilet so calm the fuck down oh look important meeting ciao”
  • Graves being deposited in a sewer the next time he tries to use a floo
  • Damnit Macfloosa
  • Why the fuck is there a fireplace in the sewer in the first place
  • Wait
  • Why the fuck is there an alligator in the sewer
  • Why the fuck is there so much sewage in the fucking sewer
  • Why the fuck is there a sentient dark artifact in the fucking sewer
  • Oh 
  • Oops
  • But on the other hand, the three way battle between the giant alligator, the ominously clicking (and giant, has it feasted on sewage and grown or something because it never would’ve fit down the pipes if it had been this size before) dark artifact thing that leaked corrosive acid, and Graves’ transfigured army of sewage-soldiers is truly epic
  • It’s a victory for the ages
  • He should get a medal for this
  • “Defeated evil undead artifact and evil not-undead alligator with enchanted shit”
  • Maybe not
  • Graves finally emerging from the sewer and falling on his knees to praise the sun like the dramatic little shit he is
  • Drags himself back to the office for a change of clothes and a shower
  • There’s a memo waiting for him
  • Fucking budget report
  • In a fit of pique, fills the entire budget report in on the spot
  • Allocates the majority of the budget report to “Protecting New York from certain destruction at the hands of dark magic and creatures roaming unchecked in the city”
  • Because fuck that alligator
  • And fuck that artifact
  • Fast forward to about a month later
  • MACUSA passes a full out ban on magical creatures in New York
  • People outraged
  • Why the fuck do the puffskeins have to go
  • Aurors outraged
  • Where the fuck do we pull the time from to deal with this
  • Graves outraged
  • More as a general thing than at anything in particular, to be honest
  • Newt Scamander outraged
  • (well not yet but he will be as soon as he arrives in New York)
  • Now fast forward to Graves and Newt trying to untangle the bill and fix the whole mess (because what Newt wants Newt gets and besides, he’s technically breaking twenty eight laws and is down for deportation at the very least so it’s in Graves’ immediate interests to get this damn bill repealed)
  • Graves finds the budget report that started the city-wide fear of magical creatures
  • Realises he might possibly maybe be the one to blame for all this
  • Fuck
  • fuck
