So I did the math, and it'd take exactly 400 people to make a steel longsword.
You know how fantasy books talk about swords "forged from the blood of enemies"? Well I calculated it, and you would have to drain the blood of 400 adult men and extract the iron from their blood to have enough to make a steel longsword. Forged from the blood of enemies.
That's pretty interesting to know, then.
Lucifer’s 2x18 Ending -
Sanoiro’s Theory & Speculation
***NOT S3 SPOILER FREE***
This time I’ll begin this a bit differently.
First, if you want to know where I believe Lucifer is then, check this post . Be warned that I’ll not repeat what is written in that post aside from a minor detail.
Second… What makes a mystery? Let’s take this like any other mystery that has ever been written. When there is a crime, there are three characters you should check out. The Suspects, The Detective and the Witnesses.
We have plenty and everywhere I go I always hear about Lucifer’s siblings. As I have already told you the next episodes do not credit any kind of angel. We get to have an Assistant, a woman who will appear in the first three episodes at least but that’s it. If she is Azrael… Again though I doubt it. You have to realise that just because we got Uriel and Mum in one season it doesn’t mean we get to have a new celestial being in the mix so soon. I mean season three is not a holiday resort for feathered siblings!
Therefore instead of speculating about an unknown villain I would say keep your eyes in the room and not who might or might not be behind the door!
The Detective: Is of no consequence here… I mean both Detectives as clueless as you can get them to be.
The Witnesses: As far as we know there was none or was that the case?
Every mystery has:
A problem that needs to be solved: Lucifer has wings
An event that cannot be explained: Lucifer founds himself in a desert
A secret: Who has did it?
Something that is lost or missing: Obviously his clothes but not really…
Two things can be found in a mystery:
The Clues and the Red Herring. The first helps you solve the mystery while the second misleads you. The Red Herrings most often that not are false clues… And so far my dear readers you all have been hoodwinked. You are in a wild goose chase without a goose.
The answer to this mystery for me is simple and although I might be wrong I believe that I have all the right clues to support it without being fooled by the false ones. So you may ask who is the one behind Lucifer’s kidnapping? If you don’t want to know please stop and go back to your headcanon because this will be a crazy ride.
Let’s start from the first clue… While Lucifer is talking to the phone we can see a person walking behind him aside from the 2 paramedics and 1 nurse who have left the scene. Now when I say see, I mean on the ceiling.
At first, you believe it’s the nurse that has just passed Lucifer but the direction and the pace are totally different. Of course, I might be mistaken and it might be indeed the extra who played the nurse. Still, I’m just going to leave this here as it is the most harmless “clue”.
Now In order to proceed, you need to know who I’m suspecting. Who I believe has the motive, the ability and of course the reason to knock out Lucifer and even manage to give him his wings back.
How does this pic do it for you?
No? You don’t see anything else aside a bunch of paintings, Lucifer, Linda and Maze. Okay, now how about this?
Let’s take things from the very beginning. In the show, Maze cuts Lucifer’s wings and after he burns them in 1x07 she tells him
“I cleaned up your mess at the beach”.
Maze knew exactly where she had disposed the wings and from 1x13 she also knew the power they held. How could she ever heal Amenadiel if she didn’t a have an inkling of what they were capable of?
Now according to the comics as I have mentioned before the wings can regenerate themselves to their former glory. No.Matter.What. This means that wherever the wings were they slowly healed on their own. Also if you didn’t notice in 1x07 the flesh on the wings was still fresh. The wings in a way healed and waited patiently for when their owner would reattach them So the wings can be reattached easily, the detachment was bloody painful and for a good reason.
-They have remembered their former state. The Form and Substance that they had before his Fall.
-They have healed themselves.
At this point let me speculate something. In the comics, Lucifer’s wings were bat-like. All leathery etc. It never made sense why Lucifer’s wings were white and Amenadiel’s fell off. Now my theory on this is simple:
Maze and Lucifer come to Earth and Lucifer has the Hellish wings if you like. Or the bat wings as I call them. When Maze cuts them off, the wings as a piece of divinity get back to their original angelic form, in short they heal themselves. That is why perhaps Maze used them on Amenadiel. Okay so far so good… But that creates the issue for Lucifer in season 3.
If the wings were restored to their original form after Maze cut them then what that means for Lucifer to have back his wings all feathered and oozing divinity? As Henderson has said season 3 is all about identity. Is Lucifer [still] the Devil, is he [now] an Angel?
Now in my opinion Maze wanted.. wait this is part of the next question…
But many may ask… Why would Maze do that? It doesn’t make sense and yet it does.
Maze has started to experience feelings. Feelings she never knew that existed before and the most troublesome part is that she is finally rebelling. But feelings are a scary thing as we have seen from Lucifer himself. We saw previously in season 2 that Maze still has issues with admitting she has human feelings, no instead she is awesome and that she has become more human than most of the humans Linda knows.
With that knowledge, we can speculate 2 things. First, that Maze now knows that Lucifer used her. As the showrunners have hinted Maze will try to turn against to Lucifer in order to claim her independence. With her first adult friend badly injured because of Lucifer, remember that Maze wanted Mum back to Hell since day one, we can say that she would do anything to come to Linda’s aid. That would also mean a foolish hope that perhaps another feather had made it from the fire.
Now plenty to speculate that a simple cig could not have burned the wings. I partly agree but mostly because: a) Lucifer is the Lightbringer and wouldn’t that be oxymoron and b) because as I have said according to the comics they heal themselves.
My speculation here is that Maze tried to find a feather and found the wings intact.
But why would she attach them to Lucifer?
As Lucifer said Maze cares for certain humans and Chloe is one of them. When she realises what happened to Linda can happen to Chloe because Lucifer suddenly wanted the Detective to know a very hasty plan is formulated. Maze failed to protect Linda but she can protect Chloe and Trixie, also she has not forgiven Lucifer neither for his manipulation in season 2 but nor for the fact that by showing Linda his Devil form, her friendship with the Doctor almost ended. Maze has come close to losing many friends and people she cares about because of Lucifer and this time she rebels very much like Lucifer did to his Dad.
So she decides to get the wings and then what you will ask. Again let’s go back to 1x07.
Lucifer says to Amenadiel: “I mean, you were willing to let a human die and unleash the wings upon the world just to remind me who I was.
To fool me into desiring the wings and the hellish throne they accompany.
Severing the wings was a half measure. I did leave myself an out.A ripcord back to the life that dear old Dad chose for me.But I don’t need it now, because, in case I haven’t made myself abundantly clear, I’m never going back to Hell.”
As we know the wings were not just part of his angel form. Oh no, they weren’t. Shocked? Well, you see what we learned from season 1 and what Maze knows, the wings are a ticket back to Hell. A ticket that can include her as well as she cannot leave otherwise. Lucifer himself apologised about that in 1x07 and that is why Maze kept that feather.
So Maze gives Lucifer his wings back in hopes that they might finally return to Hell. Not because she missed home but because she finally cares too much for the ones she feels she has to leave behind in order to protect. Let’s not forget that Maze in the show declared that she would protect Lucifer from danger even if he didn’t it was coming. Now she is determined to do the same thing for Linda (too late), Chloe and Trixie.
So Maze needed Lucifer back, no she needed the Devil back but she got an Angel instead… Now that was a twist…
Here is where I end the first part
Now let’s see some other clues…
1) Maze’s daggers are shaped like angel feathers. That was perhaps a clue from the writers since the very beginning. Also, Maze has access to the weird baton… or as I say that weird batton-vibrator… I would totally believe that Maze could have used a vibe to kidnap Lucifer…
That’s a baton by the way, not a vibe…
2) Is it really weird that 2x19 or now the episode 3x01 is called Mr and Mrs Mazinkeen Smith? If we take the reference out of the movie Mr and Mrs Smith we can tell that Maze is still pissed and now has her own agenda. Yes, it is also a Maze centric episode so I would again bet my money on Maze being behind Lucifer’s feathery problem. Still, the pic that has been uploaded for that episode doesn’t show Maze being injured or anything…
3) Lucifer still carries the injuries from his confrontation with Maze but if you notice how the make-up has been applied then you will realise that the injuries are not just from the sun. Only one of his ears is bloody as well as parts of his chest. It is like he was dragged on the coarse ground or dragged while he landed on the dessert. My best speculation would have been that the Wings got him back to the first place they remembered since his fall.
Now you see his ear injured and several other bloody spots but the Maze’s bruise and his forehead cut are still there although they have faded a bit.
Whilst his right side is fine…
(The next two paragraphs have been posted before)
Here I have to remind you again what Linda had said to Lucifer. “When angels fall, they also rise. All you have to do is embrace all that you are.” We also know that season 3 is going to deal with the issue of identity according to Henderson. Is Lucifer a devil or an angel and why? So keep in mind Linda’s words and let’s go back to that forsaken desert.
Now in San Bernardino, there is the Amboy Crater… The Amboy Crater is just a volcano crater but according to the region’s legends, it’s so much more. It’s the spot Lucifer landed when he Fell from heaven.
How did Lucifer end up in the desert and why is he hurt?
My theory here is again simple. When the wings reattached themselves his body should have been vulnerable for the scars to open and the wings to be set on his flesh and bones. Now if you believe that the wings are a new pair the same logic applies. You cannot have an invulnerable body and suddenly you sport wings, that’s not how the show works. The series loves a good mystery and for God to just give him a pair magically without Lucifer suffering is simply not the way the Writers have done things so far.
Yet the injuries are not really explained… Yes, you are right. The peeling and the scrapped skin is not explained totally by the sun exposure. They are explained though by a very bad landing. If you see the ending again his left ear is bloody as is his chest and a good part of just one of his whole arm length. That talks of his body being dragged over a coarse ground. Therefore I would say that Lucifer actually flew there…
Again why in the middle of the desert? I’ll go again with the legend and say that the wings either took him as far as possible to a place that resembled Hell (heat etc.) or the writers thought it would be cool if the Wings went to the first familiar place on Earth, the Amboy Crater. The spot where Lucifer landed the first time.
But for how long has Lucifer stayed in the desert? That’ s debatable but I’ll say not for very long. The reason is simple. Lucifer’s injuries which Maze caused in 2x17 are still there at the end of 2x18. (See the pics above)
Have I missed anything?
(By the way, I wanted to write this theory into a one-shot or a 2-3 chapter fic. But A03 is filled with 2x18 ending fics and I’m simply not in the mood right now… Perhaps in a few weeks or a month… )
feel like sassy Naomasa (and burning Endeavor), so here you go, new headcanon:
months or even years from the actual events of BNHA, there are things that have
changed and things that didn’t. All Might has retired. Class 1-A has grown
further. Villains are still on the move every day, and heroes are still needed.
The top of the heroes has changed only so little – Endeavor is still the
current number one, but the All Might will always be the Symbol of Peace.
Literally nobody will ever call Endeavor of all people a peaceful man, much
less a Symbol of said peace.
between changes and not-changes, Naomasa is still the only police officer who
doesn’t cover in fear when the fire-hero has one of his fiery days, so he’s,
sadly enough, the one who always has to deal with Endeavor.

raging Endeavor. “Why, Todoroki-san, you don’t seem happy about getting to save
the poor people in there.”
huff sends fire sparking around the tall man’s head. “I could handle this
situation in under a minute if you would just let me go in there!”
while you go straight in there and beat the villains up, the victims of this
whole situation will be the civilians who will get hurt in all of this,” the
detective shoots back. “So please wait until reinforcements arrives.”
what reinforcements would that be?! Whoever it is, they are late!”
They were late, Naomasa had to admit. He had
called for reinforcements almost fifteen minutes ago, they already should have
phone buzzes, and there is a message from his old friend who he had just wanted
to call, reading

Quick message: I did NOT write this. This scenario is a submission from the wonderful and talented @alipurple! Please give them lots of love on their hard work!
A/N: Either/both the gifs are optional but it fits close to this scenario; Cha Eunwoo trying to wake reader up in the morning. Reading this through, Y/N is optional gender. Also, I used his real name Lee Dongmin instead of his stage name. I wrote this after watching LOTJ and hearing his morning voice like oh my goodness— I ghost wrote this. Enjoy! :)
You were in the middle of an epic dream, using taekwondo against an unknown villain while your classmates stood by in amazement. Never mind the fact that you’ve never learned taekwondo and your flexibility matches to that of a middle-aged man, in your dream world you were so close to conquering the bad guy when your breath suddenly cut short.
Why was it so hard to breathe?
You gasp out loud, your vision blurring back into reality. You found yourself lying flat on your back, your head tilted towards a boy grinning sleepily at you. Eyelids still heavy, you blink away the darkness and squint up at your boyfriend’s face. You take notice of the weight of his hand resting on your shoulder before you groan, squeezing your eyes shut.
“You stuck your fingers up my nose again, didn’t you?” You asked in a cracked voice. His low chuckle answered your question, and you sigh. You relax the tension in your shoulders and turn to your side, facing away from the body next to you. “You could have killed me you know? Dongmin the girlfriend killer.”
“I’m sorry Y/N,” he replied with his throaty morning voice, “You were in deep sleep mode. I tried other ways to wake you up but they never worked.”
As wonderful as it was to hear your boyfriend’s voice, it was still too early for your brain to function. Your breathing slowed and you tried your best to go back to your dream, but it was useless now that you’ve already opened your eyes. Even if you did try to go back to sleep, there was Dongmin the Troll, rolling you over so you were once again on your back, poking your cheek repeatedly when you tried to ignore him.
“Yah, wake up. Your class starts in an hour and you know how your prof checks for attendance.” He lifted up a corner of the blanket so that the cool air drifted over you. You wince at the feeling of goosebumps and curl into your boyfriend’s body for warmth. You could hear him cooing down at your cuddling, as he pushed your hair back and gently stroked your cheek. You snuggled in closer and finally settled to sleep in some more, only slightly aware of the hand that left your face.
You didn’t think much of it until he flicked your forehead. Flinching back in pain, you whine at Dongmin’s giggling. “You really do have to get up,” he says, resting his head on your pillow, “I’ll even make breakfast for you!”
It sounded appetizing, but what you really needed right now was warmth. Pulling up the top corners of the blanket to wrap around you, you pulled up your legs sideways and gently kicked at Dongmin’s stomach, successfully pushing him off the bed as he landed on the ground with a thud.
“Really Y/N?” He groaned but you didn’t care, you were wrapped tightly up in your blanket burrito and still had half an hour to sleep in until you really had to get up for class.
It was quiet for a few seconds until you felt his lips press against your forehead. You squinted your eyes open, only for him to peck you again on your nose. You smiled unconsciously as he kissed all over your face, until the blanket was ripped out of your grip and thrown to the end of the bed.
Your mind was screaming from the cold, though all you could do was gasp out your boyfriend’s name in annoyance. Forget about the villain you were fighting in your dream, Lee Dongmin is now your worst enemy.
The boy took the chance to pounce on you, stopping you from reaching out to grab the blanket and locking you in place with his arms and legs. Your eyes were definitely awake as you pouted up at him, and he grinned at your expression. Leaning down slowly, he pecked you on your lips. He leaned back in for a longer, proper kiss when you covered your mouth with your hand. He didn’t notice until his lips landed on your knuckles instead of your own lips. He pulled back, his eyebrows scrunched in confusion.
“I didn’t brush my teeth,” you mumble. You feel the sleepiness leave you as you blush from the awkwardness. Dongmin only grinned, crashing down next to you from where he was holding himself up, wrapping himself around your frame, kissing your cheek and snuggling his face into the crook of your neck. “And I doubt you did, either,” you continue, feeling the heat of embarrassment form on the back of your neck as Dongmin brushed his lips against your collarbone.
He sighed against your skin, your nose scrunching up because yes, you were right, he does have bad morning breath. Unwrapping himself off of you, he got up off the bed. You slowly sit up as well, your shoulders tense as you feel the cold air again. Dongmin didn’t think twice as he pulled his hoodie off from the back of the office chair and slipped it on over your head. Once you fit your arms in the sleeves, your boyfriend pulls you up from your spot, both of you making your way to the kitchen for breakfast.
Yup, just another morning being woken up by your boyfriend, the human alarm clock. And you wouldn’t have it any other way.
