trying to rescue his brother

Does anyone else think that its unlikely zeke will voluntarily  give up his titan powers and be eaten before he can try and “rescue” Eren? I mean sure he’s loyal to the Marley but i find it hard to believe that he would just willingly send himself to his death and have some kid take his powers before trying to rescue his long lost half brother.

This notion really has me thinking that these new characters that were introduced, are gonna meet a very untimely end in the next few chapter( heck maybe next chapter because this series has people dieing left and right out of nowhere) becase i don’t see Zeke, and even Reiner being killed off just like that after one, we still haven’t seen Zeke and Eren fully interact with each other, and two, we still needed the backstory of RBA and Reiner seems like he still has an arc that needs to be completed.

Why Castiel is the world’s most underappreciated angel:

1.  He’s the only angel even attempting to do his damn job.

What was the one thing God told the angels to do before he left?  Oh yeah, that’s right.  “Love humanity.” 

For most angels, this very simple command seemed to get lost in translation very, very quickly.  (Here, I would include images of all the humans whose eyes got needlessly burned out, but that’s just unnecessarily gory).

But while the other angels treat the human race with repulsion (i.g. Uriel, Zachariah, Bartholomew, Naomi) or at best, quiet indifference (i.g. Hannah), Castiel appears to be the only one who will invariably place humanity’s safety above all else.  Not only that, he appears to be the only angel who legitimately loves humanity in general.

(And don’t even get me started on his love for “humanity.”  That’s a topic for another time).

If you ask me, this is the reason God takes a special interest in Cas.  It’s because Cas isn’t the only one diverging from the angels’ original mission:  he’s the only one staying true to it.  

You’ll never convince me this isn’t why Chuck keeps bringing Cas back.  (That, and he obviously really ships Destiel).

2.  He’s almost completely altruistic. 

Despite the fact that they’ve have never actually formally thanked him for everything he’s done for them (which I’m just the slightest bit bitter about), Castiel continues to battle and suffer endlessly for Dean and Sam.

For one thing, he pulled Dean out of hell.  I really can’t stress that enough. Saving someone from eternal damnation is kind of a big deal.

Then, in season six, he confronted Lucifer AND Michael in the cage to try to rescue his brother-in-law.  Obviously, that didn’t work out too well for anyone involved, but again:  he confronted two of the most powerful angels in the universe to try to rescue him.  KIND OF A BIG DEAL. 

In season eight, he was willing to spend eternity alone in purgatory to keep the leviathan away from Dean.

In season ten, he was willing to die horribly to avoid having to hurt Dean (unless it isn’t abundantly clear at this point, he REALLY FUCKING LOVES DEAN).

Most recently, in season 11, we see Cas single-handedly take on LUCIFER AND AMARA – the two most terrifying beings in the entirety of the supernatural universe – just to keep his precious boyfriend safe.  

(I also think we should all take a moment to appreciate that he’s now called two of heaven’s most powerful and intimidating archangels “ass-butt.”) 

And sacrificing himself in the hope that Lucifer could possibly defeat Amara and save the world was (while unfortunate for everyone) an incredibly selfless thing to do.

Don’t listen to Amara or Metatron or any of those other assholes, Cas.  You’re a fucking hero. 

3.  Everyone underestimates him (and usually, it proves disastrous).

Bad things happen to people who underestimate Castiel.  The only exception to this rule is Dean, who gets a free pass because they’re married.

(Oh really, Dean?  Remember season five, when he sliced off Pestilence’s ring finger without the aid of any angelic grace?  Or when he killed at least three angels in the beginning of season nine, despite the fact that he was completely human at the time?)  

Let’s start with an obvious example:  the writers.

When Cas was conceptualized, he wasn’t supposed to be a main character.  He wasn’t even supposed to be a recurring character for more than six episodes.  His only purpose was supposed to be introducing angels and biblical mythology to mythology to Supernatural, and providing a plausible explanation as to how Dean got out of hell.  The writers only decided to keep him on for seasons five and six due to his immediate popularity within the fandom.  Towards the beginning of season seven, the writers appeared to think Cas and most Biblical mythology had run its course, and arranged for him to be killed off.  Ratings immediately plummeted, until they were basically forced to bring him back.

Speaking of writers, that brings us to our next example:  Metatron, whose greatest mistake was that he underestimated Castiel’s intelligence.  Seriously, at one point he compared him to a “mentally deficient puppy.”  Rude. 

(Although in fairness, he kind of does give off that impression). 

The irony of Metatron’s defeat, however, was that Cas didn’t beat him in some grandstanding, epic battle.  He outsmarted him, using the very same kind of PR warfare that Metatron had prided himself on.

For a slightly less “Meta” example (see what I did there?) we have Naomi.  While she didn’t underestimate Castiel’s intelligence or power, she did sorely underestimate the strength of his love for Dean.  This mistake would cost her the angel tablet, and ultimately result in the angels’  fall from grace.

Earlier still, we have his unfortunate alliance with Crowley.  Now, Crowley is Supernatural’s smartest and longest-surviving villain for a reason:  he’s never underestimated these “denim-wrapped nightmares.”

He did, however, make the mistake of thinking he could continuously manipulate Cas into doing his bidding without repercussions, a misjudgment that very nearly had him smitten.

Obviously, this didn’t work out much better for Cas – or anyone, for that matter, when his megalomaniacal alter ego reigned terror on the entire planet.

BUT:  

4.  He actually DID prevent a second Biblical apocalypse.

This wasn’t properly addressed after season six, but Raphael made it abundantly clear that if allowed to rise to power, he would release Lucifer and Michael from the Cage and restart the apocalypse.  

Perhaps the one “good” dead performed by Cas’s god persona (aside from disbanding the KKK, curing that blind homeless guy, and expressing his support of marriage equality) was that he succeeded in his mission to defeat Raphael.  And by “defeat,” I obviously mean “blow to bits,” possibly out of left over bitterness from the end of season four.

(“SEE!?  Exploding isn’t so nice when it happens to YOU, is it?  Jerk.”)

Regardless of whether or not you think Raphael’s fate was deserved, it’s hard to ignore the fact that it did (at least temporarily) ensure that the Cage would remain shut.  And while God!Cas and the leviathan did an irreparable amount of damage, I don’t think it came anywhere close to the amount of suffering or fatalities that would have been caused by a Biblical end of days.   

5.  The other angels set the bar really, really low.

Castiel is the Kevin McCallister of the angelic race.  Literally everyone in the entire family is a fucking disaster, but the second something goes wrong, everything’s HIS fault.

I mean yeah, he’s made some large-scale blunders.  But at least he’s never purposefully caused the apocalypse because his dad wasn’t home and he was hoping to get some time off of work.

Or nearly destroyed the planet because he got into a kindergarten-style slapping contest with his brother. 

Or literally ruined the entire universe because he was jealous and mildly irritated with his father. 

No wonder the only other sane angel got his ass out of there. 

@flower-of-the-desert said: I know this is off topic but do we know that the brother is actually missing for sure? cause of the way yusaku talked about saving him from darkness and that shot that really looks like some kind of jail cell (whether that’s really the brother or not) it makes me think that maybe the brother got arrested for something he may or may not have done rather than just missing; and on topic, you know this already probably but I am ALL for possessive Ignis and/or Yusaku :D

I still think that flashback kid is young!Shoichi, and that he’s in that cell because he was locked up either preemptively or after trying to rescue his brother (and failing).

This is obviously just conjecture, though. I’ve also seen people theorize that “rescuing [Shoichi’s Brother] from the darkness” could mean he was brainwashed and/or had his memories wiped, but unlike Yusaku being unaware of it. So in beating the KoH, they’ll somehow be able to restore him to who he once was.

Shoichi’s brother simply being in prison… could work. Though with that straightforward of an answer, i would wonder why it hasn’t been said by now. Like the fact that we’re even talking about this means there’s an element of mystery to his true whereabouts, which lends credence to the ‘missing’ theory.

But it could also be that he’s in prison, but Shoichi and Yusaku have no idea where this prison actually is. Maybe the KoH have him hidden in Link Vrains? 

As for Ignis and Yusaku, I got the feeling! Lol I’m right there with you, I’d be so down to see something like this happen between them. I don’t care for the yandere trope, but you could have one character love another to the point of possessiveness without them being a yandere. Personally, that’s what I would prefer to see.

Episode 27 is a ROLLERCOASTER OF EMOTION, people! Kaiba vs Pegasus. Having gone to great lengths to make Kaiba seem as unsympathetic as a devoted older brother trying desperately to rescue the light of his life can possibly be, this motherfucking _cartoon_ now uses him to tear my heart out and stamp on it.

But that comes later. First up, Pegasus gets down to business.

Welp. There goes the neighbourhood.

Toon World is almost as much of a cheat as using an Ancient Egyptian artifact to read minds is, and that’s saying something! None of the spectators but Yugi have even _heard_ of the Toon cards and Yugi tells them that they’re all one-of-a-kind and were never made available to the public. They’re Pegasus-only cards, and massively overpowered, since they can’t be directly attacked but appear to have no weakness to balance that. Or weakness at all?

And Kaiba is FURIOUS when Pegasus toonifies the Blue Eyes he took from him.

Kaiba realises he’s going to have to step things up to face off against someone with unbeatable monsters who can also obviously read his mind. His solution? Dump his hand since Pegasus knows it, and just play from the deck! He’s TRUSTING IN THE HEART OF THE CARDS! THIS IS NOT A DRILL!

He just draws and plays without even looking at it, into Attack Mode, and man would he have looked foolish if it was a Magic Card, but of course…

I’m not going to lie to you, Tumblr, I genuinely got emotional at this point. Kaiba might be an asshole, and overly skeptical, and rude, and stubborn as a really obsessive and angry mule, but his relationship with his dragons is beautiful. Also his relationship with his brother. I guess.

Speaking of which…

He imaGINES MOKUBA HELPING HIM TO DRAW THE CARD … i can’t.

And with imaginary!Mokuba and his weirdly loyal trading cards helping him out, he defeats the “monstrosity” of the Blue Eyes Toon Dragon, or, as he says, he “puts it out of its misery”.

Really was quite tempted to just turn it off at this point and imagine him winning and taking Mokuba home and emotionally healing BUT NO.

Pegasus once again uses one of his own cards against him - this time his Virus card that destroys all high-attack monsters. This leaves Kaiba with one card. ONE CARD.

(Pegasus knows this because mind reading.) Kaiba’s weakness is strength (omg irony!) because he dismisses useful but “weak” monsters like Kuriboh and surrounds himself with the monsters with the highest attack possible, leaving him wide open to his own strategy. You’d think someone who was _this_ smart and _this_ good at Duel Monsters would look at his _own_ Virus card and think “Hmm, if anyone else had this card, or if someone used one of the _many_ stratagems to use an opponent’s card against them, I would be totally boned.” but no. I’d like to say between basically losing to Yami because of Kuriboh except for threatened suicide and now this, he might learn to pop in a few lower attack Monsters with special effects but I’m not actually convinced he does. We’ll chalk it down to all the emotional trauma making him forget these valuable life lessons.

Kaiba is staring his defeat in the face and he says, aloud.

I’m crying.

… I’m prideshipping.

I believe he means Yami here, not Yugi. He’s actually had very little interaction with Yugi at this point. Yami takes over pretty quickly whenever Kaiba starts talking smack, which is basically always. They duelled twice, which was all Yami, and Yami came out to talk to him when he came by their campsite and beat Joey. He saw Yugi obviously at the end of the duel on the castle, but Yugi was way too upset to talk, or even look at him. Yugi has been cheering him on for this duel, but Kaiba’s attention has been on Pegasus. Kaiba knows Pegasus is going to do something awful, he may at this point accept that Mokuba’s soul has been stolen and guess that Pegasus means to do the same to him. And the only two people he wants to say goodbye to are Mokuba, and Yami.

#theyareveryveryimportanttooneanother #eventhisearlyon

So then Pegasus steals his soul and locks it into another card. And then he gets reeeeeeeeal creepy even by Pegasus standards.

#theresaficthere #orseveral #creepyones #alsokinkyones #toonshippinghasalotofverydisturbingpotential 

The spectators are appalled. They’ve been really supportive of Kaiba the whole time. Honda and Jou intended to root for Pegasus, but Kaiba’s strength of spirit and devotion to Mokuba won everyone over really quickly. Every one of them has had someone good to say about him. Even Pegasus complimented him for playing his last card rather than forfeiting when it was obvious it was over. And now he’s lost, and lost his soul, Yugi gets really upset. And Yami isn’t going to stand for this.

Dramatic lighting and poses! He calls Pegasus out and Pegasus recognises him as “other Yugi”. He reminds him that he’ll only duel the winner of the tournament, and Yami tells him he knows that, but he’s coming for him.

No one fucks with Yami’s boyfriend friend rival and gets away with it.

Power Falls AU

Power falls au:

Gravity fall is a small town where people with superpowers move to so they can train or be around others like them. Usually their powers start to come in around age six, but in uncontrollable small bursts. The town works hard to keep the powers a secret during tourist season, so they practice controlling/using their powers discretely. They don’t want the general public knowing of their powers, and fear what will happen if the (higher up) government finds out about them. The only reason they allow for such a large tourist season is because the town’s economy relies on the money it brings.

People with powers started to appear when factories, like the one in the Mabel’s Scrapbook short “Petting Zoo,” started to appear in different cities. All of them were shut down except for the one in Gravity Falls. The toxic waste was the cause of the powers, but only a few people were affected by it. Since Gravity Falls had the highest concentration of people with powers, other who had powers decided to move there. Since then people have been training with, trying to understand, and control their powers.

Peter Dinsdale was a British serial killer born in Manchester, England on July 31, 1960. He never knew his father, who left his mother while he was still a baby. When he was only 6 months old his mother, who was working as a prostitute sent him to live with his grandmother until he was 3. His mother had disowned because of his disabilities and epilectic fits. She referred to him as “the freak.” Neighbors described Dinsdale’s mother as neglectful and no good. It was also reported other kids used to tease him. Dinsdale changed his name to Bruce Lee in the summer of 1979, in honor of his idol and Kung Fu film star. Lee’s had became obsessed with fire at the age of only 9. At the age of 12, Lee set his first house on fire and claimed the life of his first victim. The victim who died in the blaze was 6-year-old Richard Ellerington, who Lee saw regulary as he attended to same school for handicapped kids. Lee set many more fires over the years getting away with each of them. Arson was never suspected to be the cause of any of the fires until 1979.

On December 4, 1979 Edith Hastie awoke in the middle of night with a feeling something was wrong. She shared her house on 12 Shelby Street in the poor England town of Hull. They were Charlie (15), Paul (12), Thomas (9), and Peter (8). Her three daughters had been staying with nearby friends and relatives. She ran out onto the land and screamed as she saw flames shooting up the stairs. She went to wake up Charlie and the pair went back to the landing in an attempt to rescue Thomas. He slept in the same room as his mother since he suffered from a muscular disease and had a hard time walking. But they were beaten by flames and rushed back to the front bedroom. The frantic Charlie pushed his mother from the window despite the 15 foot drop. She injured her ankle in the fall. Despite his mothers pleas, Charlie stayed inside to try to rescue his brothers. All 3 boys were trapped by the flames. By the time fire services reached their home, they all suffered from burns on 70 to 85 percent of their body. Only Thomas was rescued with less serious burns. Over the following two weeks, Paul, Peter, and Charlie all died of their injuries. Forensic examinations had shown that the fire started by the front door undearneth a letter box. Several pints of parrafin had been poured onto the carpet, followed by a lighted newspaper. There was no doubt that this fire had has been deliberately started. The Hastie family were no strangers to the local police. Barely a day went by when their wouldn’t be a call reporting some minor crime commited by the Hastie’s father. He often partner up with his son. Due to the constant reports and fighting with the Hastie’s, many false leads and suspects were noted throughout the case. Police grew fustrated until they learned that one of the owners of the Rovers they had put under surveillance were involved in cruising for sex with teenage boys in the city’s public restrooms. The trail had again gone cold until the police decided to interview any local homosexuals who were known to frequent the same restrooms as the rover car driver they had followed.

Among those interviewed was a 19-year-old man who called himself Bruce George Peter Lee. He knew Charlie Hastie and had been involved in “indecenct” behavior with him. This gave a connection to the eldest son and Lee. It was decided several possible suspects would be brought in for a questioning on the same day. All of the suspects would be accused in hopes that the real killer would confess. The detective wasted no time when he interviwed Lee. Detective Sagar told Lee they suspected him as the killer and that they believed indency with Charlie somehow led to it all. Lee admitted to the starting the blaze stating, “I didn’t mean to kill the kids.” Over the months, Lee confessed to causing many more fires and responsibilty for no less than 26 deaths. There were many doubts toward some his confessions mainly because of his physical handicap. Lee pleaded guilty to 26 counts of mansluaghter and 11 counts of arson acknowledging recklessness as to whether a life was in danger. He was sentenced to maximum security mental hospital indefinitely, where he remains today.

I just depressed myself realizing how much Stans quality of life actually increased after he lost Ford to the portal. First stability he had in ten years

I think about this a lot.

Stan really didn’t give anything up to save Ford; if anything, you’re right, his life got better. I’m not trying to say what Stan did wasn’t completely selfless - he dedicated 30 whole years of his life to rescuing Ford, and when he finally did Ford couldn’t have cared less. But I think the fandom really needs to stop putting Stan on this righteous pedestal like oh what a saint he abandoned his own life so Ford could keep living. 

I mean, eh.

Here is my analysis of the events:

Stan and Ford are both super codependent; we see this most through the former. When Stan pushed Ford over the line and into the vacuum of the portal, he essentially erased Ford from existence. Stan didn’t know how to deal with that, so instead of just admitting that Ford was gone, he entered a deep state of denial and literally became his brother. I’m not talking split personality disorder, I’m talking identity theft. Stan really didn’t have to fake his own death - he could have faked Ford’s. Or better, just reported his brother missing (or not filed a report at all!). The shack is under Ford’s name, yes, but Stan still could have lived there and still could have wired money through Ford’s bank account to pay the mortgage. 

Stanley Pines is a criminal banned from like, a majority of the United States. Killing himself and assuming Ford’s identity was a great solution to a problem that otherwise would have followed him his whole life. But you gotta think, why the hell would he do that? If he planned on getting Ford back, why on Earth would he have himself legally dead? Then there would be only one identity for the two twins - and we all know whose it rightfully is. Stan never gave up on Ford - but faking his own death and assuming Ford’s identity kind of makes it seem like he was prepared to live out the rest of his life as Stanford Pines. And even when Ford comes back - Stan runs for mayor under his name! There is an element of selfishness here; it almost seems like Stan doesn’t want to give Ford his name back. 

Where am I going with this? Oh yeah, okay so Stan’s whole thing in AToTS when he becomes Ford and starts the shack and makes a life for himself by day while secretly trying to rescue his brother by night is both selfish and selfless. I think it’s fully possible for an action to be both. As Ford, Stan continued his criminal activities, and (I know it’s become kind of a joke in the fandom, but think about how PISSED you would be if this happened to you) was banned from airplanes, married an animatronic prospector, and landed on the FBI’s most-wanted list. Ford was like this nerdy little upstanding citizen agoraphobe who never so much as left the woods. He’s been gone for 30 years, and when he comes back he’s a wanted criminal! The heck, man. No one would just be okay with that. Not to mention, Stan felt like Ford’s disappearance was his fault. Bringing his brother back was the only way to get rid of that guilt. 

But Stan’s actions were selfless as well because he really, truly, loves his brother. He wanted to get Ford back, and he wanted to fix their relationship. Thirty years is just a long-ass time, and people change. Stan doesn’t know his brother anymore, and Ford doesn’t know Stan. They are essentially strangers, and it’s going to take a lot of humbling to get either of the Pines twins (vintage) to see things from the other’s point of view. Maybe Dipper and Mabel can lend them a copy of TKaM or something!

HONESTLY THO AFTER THIS EPISODE I REALLY WANT FORD TO SEE JUST HOW STRONG DIPPER AND MABEL’S BOND IS

THEY WOULD DO ANYTHING TO SAVE EACH OTHER, AND SO WOULD STAN. HELL, EVEN SOOS AND WENDY. These people love each other SO GODDAMN MUCH that they would risk their lives for each other. and their strength comes from their love and bonds.

Ford focuses so much on his own work and research that he just doesn’t seem to understand the importance of family or bonds anymore. hell, he trivializes it. he even describes having a sibling as ‘suffocating,’ never mind the fact that Stan was in his life for all of, what, barely 17 years? out of 60-70? and was constantly supporting him? and Stan used up 30 of those years trying to rescue Ford, after Ford basically ruined his life? Because he loved his brother that much?

i love Ford, i really do, but he just doesn’t understand how strong these character’s bonds are. Also, i don’t think he’s ever seen Dipper and Mabel work together. Hell, in the ep, he’s congratulating Dipper on his additions to the Journals, specifically pointing to the Gnomes page, where “leafblowers” is written.

Mabel figured out their weakness. Dipper didn’t. That was all Mabel.

But Ford doesn’t know that. he just automatically assumed it was Dipper who figured it out. because he sees so much of himself in Dipper that he just raises him on to this pedestal, and seems to ignore Mabel completely.

he doesn’t understand how he’s making things worse with his selfishness. it was him who told Dipper to keep the rift a secret. And because of that decision, Mabel didn’t know about how important it was, and was tricked by Bill. Ford doesn’t understand that he’s forcing Dipper to be like him. that Dipper isn’t Ford.

Ford needs to understand that. he needs to understand that Dipper and Mabel NEED each other. that Mabel isn’t just ‘the other kid’, that she can’t just ‘handle herself’ alone, like Stanley did. That these kids have lives of their own and don’t need to be forced down separate paths like Stan and Ford were. Dipper has always put family first. it’s time Ford finally did.

DeanCas Firefly!AU where Dean is a doctor trying to rescue his brother from the Alliance-sponsored Academy, and Castiel is captain of the Serenity, a motley crew of renegades doing odd (often illegal) jobs to make ends meet. When Dean hitches a ride, things suddenly go horribly awry.

It’s been a long time since Dean’s been this drunk, and he briefly wonders why he doesn’t do it more often. Being drunk is awesome. Doubly awesome, in fact, when the hot captain is getting drunk with you. Especially when he’s got that gorgeous smile and his blue eyes are bright with drink and… god he’s–wow. he’s just wow.

“You’re pretty funny,” Cas grins, the thing absolutely blinding. He’s leaning forward as if to ensure Dean understands that this is an important compliment.

Oh boy, does Dean ever understand. “Well, you’re pretty… pretty,” he finishes lamely. The perma-smile does not move from his face.

Castiel snorts. “What did you say?”

“Just that you’re–y’know, you’re pretty. Even when you have to go down and help Jo, and you get covered in engine grease. Or like, when you’re all bruised up from a fight or… or when you’re all covered in dust from leaving the ship. Wait, no, especially–especially when you’re covered in dust. Gunk. Whatever. You’re rugged pretty.”

Dean barely has time to be embarrassed by his rambling before Cas plants one on him.
