what is a man but the sum of his memories

Snape Appreciation Month: Day #4 - Spy for the Order of Phoenix

“He was a secret agent, and still alive thanks to his exact attention to the detail of his profession.”

― Ian Fleming, Casino Royale

In other words - a spy has always to be a spy and not let their guard down even for a second. To sum up his role - he was a spy for the Order, gathering information about Death Eaters’ activities while pretending to be Voldemort’s spy gathering information about Dumbledore’s actions.

What we see through the books is a carefully crafted persona, presenting us the man and the enigma at once, whose actions, words and morals are left ambiguous and whose real allegiance remains unknown till the very end. It may be safe to assume, I suppose, it would have probably remained a secret forever if not for the memories he gave Harry. He is someone who has to carefully consider every action he takes and every word he says lest they reveal his true allegiance. Someone who goes back to Voldemort after his revival, a few hours late, and still manages to live through it all and come back. Someone who’s almost constantly observed and who may never be sure if the person he talks to should be trusted or not.

Ladies and gentlemen, a moment of appreciation for the Spy Extraordinaire - Severus Snape. The very man who has managed to fool almost everyone into thinking that he was one of the Most Bad Guys™, fully supportive of their cause - Voldemort (who killed him because of the wand and not for betrayal), Death Eaters, the Order Memebers, the Wizarding World and quite a good portion of readers who still believe it to this day.

  • Ladies and gentlemen! 
  • And as of this moment, you all work, for us!
  • Who’s a good horse? You are.
  • Ah, the gentle sound of opportunity passing us by.
  • Yes, let’s. Onward to London!
  • You have honoured us with your loyalty and courage.
  • I understand and respect your position, bound as you are by your Creed. You will indulge me one final time and receive these gifts.
  • I thought that meant we were free to do as we would.
  • Maybe you will be the one to make all this suffering worth something in the end.
  • What is a man but the sum of his memories, we are the stories we live, the tales we tell ourselves.
  • Even those men you sought to save have turned their backs on you. Yet you fight, you resist, why?
  • In your haste to save the world, boy, take care you don’t destroy it.
  • I pray we one day rise above it.
  • While you pray, I’ll act.
  • Life’s hardest choices are the ones that force you to question your own moral code.

Tadashi/Dashi
Chikako, Junko, Hisa (the Fujita sisters)
ft. Bartholomew the sphynx and a silhouette of Hiro. 

A collection of Black Fox AU drawings I’ve been working on. I got a bigger project I’m working on for this AU. The whole story I guess.

To sum it up so you can understand these images better:
Tadashi was saved from the fire by the Fujitas and brought him back to their hideout. Tadashi has no memory of who he was or his name, other than ‘Dashi’, so that’s what the girls call him.
As a way to repay them, and to keep an eye on his new sisters, Dashi wears a mask and follows them when they go out causing trouble/robbing and helps them get out of tight situations.
Of course, Big Hero 6 hears news of a new masked man in the city and find out he’s with the Fujitas. A bunch of fights and confusion happen and also there’s an adorable lazy hairless kitty named Bartholomew, “Barty” for short.

This AU was created by me and hxneylemon with her Tadashi and my version of the Fujitas.

“What is a man but the sum of his memories? We are the stories we live, the tales we tell ourselves!”

I once read a quote from someone saying that at the time of his death, Clay Kaczmarek was the most knowledgeable person on earth. And I couldn’t agree more. Clay is probably the most sacred character to me in Assassin’s Creed because I feel I relate to him more than anyone else. His story, to me, is the most captivating in the series and I feel that a lot of its awe and mystery goes unnoticed in the fandom. So here I will attempt to rectify that a bit.

what went wrong with series seven? (part three)

(part one) and (part two)

It’s annoying – no, frustrating - to watch and rewatch the Time of the Doctor. On the first go it’s an upsetting but unsurprising let down, too fast and too crammed with ideas. The Time of the Doctor was stuffed with CGI and a rollcall of monsters, both from Moffat’s era and further back – I say Moffat’s era, because the Time of the Doctor didn’t end up as Eleven’s swansong. It’s a celebration of Steven Moffat and how he throws his scripts together. A triumph of CGI setpieces on a BBC budget and a varied set of monsters that would rival Supernatural season 1 – which Eleven-era finale am I describing?

But the issues with the Time of the Doctor aren’t limited just to the Time of the Doctor; it merely is the worst of a sorry bunch of episodes that make up series seven of New Who. It exemplifies the weaknesses with both Steven Moffat’s individual scripts and his work as a showrunner. It embodies what went wrong throughout series seven, shallow or non-extant characterization, lack of connecting themes and abandoning continuity in favour of the wow factor. However, it also suffers from the rest of series seven finding characterization, themes and continuity in short supply. It doesn’t work as a climax to a character’s tenure when that character has not developed in recent series. So what went wrong with the final episode of series seven of Doctor Who?
