tormentor

everythingilikeisdead  asked:

Looking for a (possibly incomplete) fic! H and D work at Hogwarts together and they start dating. She's technically still married to Ron, but they're over. D gives her magic earrings and when she spends Xmas with the Weasleys he thinks that she's getting back with Ron, but she really was just trying to make their separation easier- because of this misunderstanding D breaks up with H. The last thing I remember was that H was pregnant with D's baby, but didn't tell him. Thanks so much!

Anyone?

Edit: Thanks naarna!

An Affair To Remember By: RZZMG - M, WIPHermione Granger-Weasley gave up her career at the Ministry for her husband, Ron Weasley, and now works at Hogwarts… with Draco Malfoy. Her one time tormentor has begun in earnest to pursue her, determined to win her love. This will be an affair to remember! FIC CHALLENGE. Dramione Romance/Drama/Hot Shag. REVISION 2.0 in process now (rev. 1 taken down & no longer distributed).

I feel it in my chest, behind my sternum, that I am capable of love My heart has been used and broken only once before, hardly handled, but in rough shape In my mind is a kaleidoscope of new and old and imagined events, my teachers said my mind was extraordinary. It is. In all the wrong places. I feel the vibrations of slow music in a car, songs always about the same thing, always about love I feel these vibrations and wonder not if I am capable of loving, but if someone is capable of loving me. My mind always goes back to the tormented tormentors. I used to use the excuse that I had too much empathy, that I cared about the inner workings of school shooters because I loved every human, but the backlash I witnessed for feeling these things made me realize I don’t love people at all. I always felt I was subhuman. Maybe it is the autism. Maybe it is the mass murder obsession that had something to do with it. But every girl who’s ever fallen in love with me I have faked a smile towards. Every boy who’s ever fallen in love with me I gave a cold embrace to. The one I fell in love with once stabbed me in the back and I wonder if I’m attracted to horrible people because I am horrible, or I am obsessed with my own death just as much as I am obsessed with the death of others.

I wasn’t going to post it but then @saosmash posted her’s so I gave in!  A commission by the esteemed @dataglitch❤️ of my boys~  I love every bit of this work!  Tormentor’s smile makes me melt every time I look at it, and how focused Lieutenant looks.  <3 <3 <3 So much adoration <3

With money you can do anything! From space elevators to resisting magical powers and summoning impossible monsters!

I love the parallels between them. It seems like the comparisons aren’t just interview meta from Genndy, they’re actively being built up.

Jack’s conversation with himself is a manifestation of his guilt and weariness. Deep down he knows that he is tired, and it would be so easy to give up and end the pain. Jack, however, ignores these feelings, and pushes them down…because if he does take the easy way out, it’s the ultimate failure; his entire life, all the suffering, everything would mean nothing. Jack’s inner torment is literally his tormentor, but it motivates him to keep going.

Aku physically splits to talk to himself, and it seems he’s been doing this for some time; at least long enough to establish that “the samurai” is not to be mentioned and that this solitude is Aku’s “safe place”. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s always done this; he’s so alone that the only person Aku can talk to is himself. Aku deals with his anguish by isolating and comforting himself. He doesn’t know that Jack lost the sword, so he’s been looking over his shoulder for fifty years, still fearing that Jack will eventually get him…and is now having to come to terms with the fact that Jack might never go away. He can’t change this, so he forces himself to accept it….but deep down, he’s hoping for some kind of miracle to kill Jack.

Both of them are in bleak places mentally and emotionally, compared to their usual selves. Jack has stopped giving any fucks, and Aku has started giving a few fucks (though he outwardly denies it). Neither of them want to call it quits. Watching where this goes will be very interesting.

The reason why I don’t take Lily’s side in the whole “Mudblood” debacle, is that it is not Lily in this scenario who is shown to be underprivileged and persecuted, it is Snape. I sympathise more with the ugly boy who comes from an impoverished, abusive home and faces daily bullying at school than the beautiful, well-off girl who is flirting with her “friend’s” tormentor. Snape lashed out in a highly stressful situation after the perceived betrayal of Lily’s suppressed smile.
