@arabian-batboy said: Can you write something where Bruce comes across Jason in an alley after his resurrection but before Talia took him in & since he couldn’t talk at that time (& because he’s supposed to be dead) Bruce thinks it’s just a hallucination and just leaves him?
It had been a long time since Bruce was afraid of ghosts, mostly because they never left him alone. If this one seemed more real than usual, hey, it had been a rough day.
Always was, this time of year.
April 27th. Bruce liked to think he was getting better— maybe some year he wouldn’t find himself lurking in Crime Alley on today, the anniversary of Jason’s death— but he wasn’t there yet.
It made sense. How was he supposed to forget Jason? That was what it would take, Bruce knew, to leave the guilt behind. Every time Jason crossed his mind, it all came crashing back: the grief and shame and pain in his chest.
Flashbacks, sometimes. Hallucinations.
He wasn’t particularly surprised to see his dead son lying on the cobblestones. It was bound to happen today.
Bruce took a deep breath. It was time for another hell ride through his own subconsciousness. What would it be this time?
Older, he thought— this Jason looked older, the age he would be if he had lived. That was normal; Bruce spent a lot of time imagining Jason alive and growing up. This Jason looked like he had been on the street for a long time, and Bruce could explain that too; they’d met on this spot when Jason was young and homeless. Of course he was remembering that day.
Bruce blinked away the image of Jason, small and defiant, sprinting towards the mouth of the alley with his tire iron. Who hit the Batman with a tire iron? Jason did. Jason was…
Well, Jason was dead. Jason had been extraordinary— brave, bright, explosive, kind— but he was gone, and the illusion on the pavement was just that: an illusion. A memory. Bruce’s mind playing tricks.
The punishment he deserved. He could feel it beginning like it always did, his heartbeat pounding in his ears, his fingertips, his chest, rooting him to the stone underneath him until he couldn’t run— not that he should run. He hadn’t saved Jason. The least he could do was feel it.
Kuro! and Shiro!Kaneki, Nishiki, Uta and Tsukiyama comforting their s/o who is a bit chubby and is really insecure about it? Thank you so much, I love the blog! <3 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(@anon: Bless u for asking about Nishiki because he ties with Shuu with me tbh and if you’re chubby and feel insecure about it, if it makes you feel better, I’m ver chubby you can ask Raven I’m almost a literal ball of fluff but that doesn’t denounce my ability VwV SO HERE WE ALL GO. Prepare for heart stabbing fluff.)
Kuro!neki: He noticed your behavior a while ago. Seeing you all flustered about your weight, no wearing the dress he brought especially for you, it kinda hurt him. Oh no, but our tragic protagonist drew the line when you refused to eat the food he especially made for you! “…. It’s not because I can’t taste, right?” “I’m just not hungry, Kane-” “You’re lying!” “Eh?” “Ah… I’m sorry if it was too straight forward but I’m tired of seeing you so sad. I find you very pretty. There’s so much more to you than your weight. So calm down, okay?” (Imsososrryhesooclol)
Shiro!neki: He instantly saw the signs when you didn’t want to wear that dress you loved. When you began to stop snacking (originally he thought you felt guilty that he couldn’t eat human stuff anymore. Especially since you loved sharing your sweets with friends.) He even saw it when you kept checking how much you consumed. When you denied him of sex, however, is when he got a tad bit angry. “Oi. The h3ll’s going on? You think I don’t notice?” “Hm?” “Look. You’re perfect if that’s what you want to hear. If you’re that concerned, we can do something together. Just stop the madness. If it’s someone telling you that you aren’t good enough, screw ‘em. You’re mine, not theirs.”
“Now bend over.”
Nishiki: He knew what was going on as soon as you declined the usual junk you ate when he brought it for you. As soon as he heard you try and throw it away, he stopped you in the kitchen doorway after you thought you successfully did the deed. “So I wasted twelve bucks for nothing?” “N-Nishi-” “Stop. Look. If it’s about how you look, throwing away good food won’t help. Heck, a lot of the junk humans eat looks unhealthy to me. Tastes bad too. But if it makes you happy, go right ahead. Screw the world if they try to tell you otherwise.”
trashking Uta: You always brought lunch into the mask shop and ate in the back for the sake of him and his masks. But he began to notice you didn’t take lunch for a few days. Then you stopped eating around him in general. When he asked your friends, they said the same thing: you just stopped eating. He slowly began to connect the dots. He wasn’t a stupid man, he was just very…. tactile. So, he let it go on for a while. He decided to confront you once he’d saw your health decline. As in you were stumbling to get to a seat in his workshop. “You don’t have to push yourself so hard.” He said. “Hm?” You played dumb. “_______, I know you’re not eating. Just stop. If it’s something as petty as your weight, just tell me who told you it was ugly. I’ll kill them!”
“…. Thanks, Uta~”
“No, I’m serious, where do they live???”
Tsukiyama: Shuu being the gourmet means he’s always trying to make sure you eat good af. He likes your plumpness, because it’s a symbol of wealth and plus you cuddle hella good B))). But he started getting upset when he saw you were declining the meals he thought would taste good that he had HIS chef personally prepare for you???? Like????? He felt lightly offended and very concerned. “Mon ami? Are you not feeling well?” He asks as this is the tenth time like child, please eat??? “I-I’m fine… I’ve just caught a virus.” You lied through your teeth. Your husbando knows 10x better than that though. “________, I know you’re lying. You haven’t been eating a lot lately. I’ve noticed that. Please, don’t feel so bad over it. I don’t love you any less for something so petty. So please, eat my darling~”
Just two happy, dorky kids hanging out on one of the docks around Crystal Lake :3 Not sure where exactly, but it might be Crystal Point, out by Tommy’s house (from part IV where the kids from the vacation house were out swimming.) And yeah, the water might be a bit low, but we can also maybe argue that it’s a higher dock too. Mostly I just wanted to draw this based off some screenshots from another movie Thom Mathews was in a few years after playing Tommy, and the pose was so cute I couldn’t resist.

“There’s this kind of thing you do with your face and your body language … and you don’t really care if they’re keeping up. You demand that they keep up … It could look like you don’t like the audience, or that you don’t like comedy.It’s almost like a guy who looks like he’s been possessed by comedy, and that’s how the demon plays around with you.” -Pete Holmes describing Bo’s stage presence
My Tabris will always be my favorite Warden because of the huge parallels between the City Elf storyline and Loghain’s storyline.
Loghain starts out as an oppressed peasant. He is driven to strike back against the Orlesian colonizers after the rape and murder of his mother.
Tabris starts out as an oppressed Alienage elf. She who is driven to strike back against the Ferelden nobility after the rape of her cousin and the murder of her fiancé.
Loghain meets Maric — the goodhearted if doofy blood heir to the Ferelden throne — and becomes his unlikely BFF because they share the same cause. Loghain has every reason to distrust the upper classes but would still rather see Ferelden nobles in charge than Orlesian ones who don’t give a shit about the peasantry. Also Loghain is a bit in love with him.
Tabris meets Alistair — the goodhearted if doofy blood heir to the Ferelden throne — and becomes his unlikely BFF because they share the same cause. Tabris has every reason to distrust humans but would still rather see a bastard outsider on the throne than a sheltered blue-blood who doesn’t give a shit about elves. Also Tabris is a bit in love with him.
Loghain is forced to choose between his own happiness and setting Maric up for a marriage that will stabilize the country. He chooses Ferelden over himself.
Tabris is forced to choose between her own happiness and setting Alistiar up for a marriage that will stabilize the country. Except stabilizing the country is not the same thing as helping her people because let’s be real here, Anora isn’t actively cruel to the elves but the Alienages don’t appear to have been a priority for her, and she was raised by a dude who condones slavery. So Tabris chooses to dethrone Anora and find happiness as the King’s mistress, rationalizing that it’s actually the best thing for everyone involved (well, except Anora, obviously, but Tabris has no reason to care about Anora, and it’s not her problem that Anora would rather be executed than renounce her claim to the throne.)
Loghain saves the country by taking charge of a small guerrilla force and later mustering greater military numbers. This earns him fame as the Hero of the River Dane. He is appointed to high nobility and commands respect far beyond the station he was born into, taking a hand in running the country.

And of course, Tabris kills Loghain for his crimes against the Alienage without a second thoughts, never knowing how close she is to being Loghain. While Loghain himself never understands that the Ferelden treatment of elves created his own worst enemy, another version of him.
I can’t wait for the Keep to open, you guys. I love my “canon” Warden an awful lot.
last year while I was recovering from surgery and dealing with a lot of pain I decided I was going to write some Spirk fanfic to make me feel better so I went into a hydrocodone induced writing frenzy and I wrote six thousand words of pure shitty fluff and I fucking uploaded it to AO3 and it is actually the most successful fic I’ve written and yeah I’m probably going to hell
