Hi! Me and my husband started watching naruto when we were around 18. We heard the series was ending and decided to pick up where we left off which was NOT easy.

some mistake, part 2

Thanks so much to everyone who’s been reading so far! I feel a little guilty since I know I won’t be finishing this any time soon, but anyhow, here’s some more anyway. Same general story warnings still apply (though none are really relevant for this section).



Derek makes it through another two weeks of school before it all gets to be too much again. He’s sitting in his room on a Saturday afternoon after practice, staring out the window at the treeline trying not to remember all the little needling comments that have been weighing him down all week. Even practice hadn’t really helped to lift his spirits and now he’s stuck in a post-lunch haze with nothing to do but his history assignment that’s already 80% done and not due til Tuesday. His parents aren’t going to call until after dinner, and he could go hang out with guys from the team but he’s in that weird kind of state where all he wants to do is mope near someone who cares enough to sit quietly with him and won’t ask any questions.

A cloud of birds unfurls from the forest canopy like smog over the sky, scattering in all directions, which is suspicious ‘cause he doesn’t remember seeing a single bird while in there. Nor hearing any, either. There’s nothing in the woods besides Dex. It’s the weekend - might he be in the woods again?  He’d been pretty strange, but it’d been a welcome change from everyone on campus trapped in the same schedule and classes as Derek. And he seems like the type who wouldn’t mind Derek hanging around silently reading his book while he chops wood or goes fishing or whatever. But the forest is spread out over a substantial chunk of land, so they might not even see each other even if Derek goes looking. However, he has nothing better to do and there’s only one way to find out.

He’s more prepared this time, taking a small bag with him with some essentials: water bottle, compass, energy bar, flashlight. He leaves a note for his roommate to tell him he’s gone to the woods just in case he straight up dies for whatever reason and his parents descend on the school to demand answers.

anonymous asked:

why do you hate skyrim so much, anyway?

To be honest, I don’t… “hate” Skyrim, per-say? Hate’s too strong a word for any game for me, and even then Skyrim isn’t necessarily a terrible game despite how much I dislike it.

Which probably sounds weird, but that’s just me; most games that I dislike aren’t just plain old bad games. I don’t have an emotional dislike of, say, Bubsy, or Superman 64, or so on. They’re shit games, but there’s nothing particularly redeemable about them. They might have had potential, but it’s more conceptual, rather than being very flawed games with some good ideas (like Gates to Infinity, or Super Mystery Dungeon to a lesser extent).

Anyway, to get back to the question, the reason I don’t like Skyrim is because it feels creatively bankrupt.

From the beginning we knew that Emma Swan was paralleled to her father Prince Charming, and in the episode, “A Land Without Magic” it was confirmed when Emma fought and defeated Maleficent in her dragon form, while flashbacks showed Charming fighting the same beast.

Much later, in the episode, “Operation Mongoose” Regina is shown wearing Snow White’s bandit outfit during the AU of that episode.

Most members of the Swan Queen fandom have already realized the parallels between Snow/Charming and Emma/Regina, and have been pointing them out for years. But these parallels got me thinking: What if they have been more than just parallels? What if Swan Queen is a reflection of Snowing? What if Swan Queen is the slow-burn version of the Snowing story we were told to in season 1? What if we were told what was going to happen in this entire series by the end of season 1? What if Emma Swan truly is the modern version of Prince Charming and Regina is Snow White? I wouldn’t believe it. Not without proof, so I did a little digging and…

You wanted to see proof? Well, my dears here…it…is.

We begin at the beginning of both our stories. All parties are shocked. The questions Regina and Charming ask are similarly worded. *Note: Emma and Regina’s roles in this scenario are flipped. Regina is the first to speak, like Charming. She is the “royal” and Emma is the “thief”.

In their second meeting, both Emma and Snow have been captured, and only released after they have agreed to help the royal find their jewels (or for Regina it’s Henry). They also both adorably rest their chin on the net/jail cell.

So they venture out in search of the jewels. No party seems to get along with the other. Emma and Regina eventually find Henry, but they lose him many times and seem to always be out looking for him. Their journeys continue, until Snow White kicks Charming in the river and runs off (You could probably pick any time Regina threw Emma under the bus in season one to compare this to). Then, Snow White gets captured by The Evil Queen’s guards, surely she’s done for! In Storybrooke, Emma and Regina are caught in a fire. Regina twists her ankle and can’t walk. This looks like the end of Snow White and Regina, until out of nowhere, Prince Charming and Emma Swan swoop in to save the women. Even though neither Charming nor Emma got along particularly well with their partners in crime (I mean Snow smacked Charming with a rock and literally kicked his ass, and Regina was generally uncool to Emma), and they may have been better off just leaving them to die, they did the right thing because they are oh so noble.

The next part of Snowing’s adventure matches Swan Queen scenes from 2x01. When the trolls discover that Snow White is in fact Snow White, they capture her and intend to sell her to the Queen. This is quite similar to when the townspeople realize that Regina is in fact the Evil Queen and they intend to kill her. Of course, no one is laying a hand on Snow White or Regina Mills while Charming and Emma are around.

The townspeople are replaced by Gold and the Wraith who are set on killing Regina. Emma fights bravely against the wraith, and manages to push Regina to safety only to get grabbed by the wraith and pulled into a portal. This is not so different from when Charming fought bravely against the trolls, and managed to get Snow safely away from the bridge, only to get pulled down by a troll from below. Yes, it exactly the same scenario. Yes, you may cry.

Fast forward to the moment in “Queen of Hearts” when Regina has the opportunity to save Emma from the Enchanted Forest or let her die, which would allow her to have Henry all to herself once more. This is the same dilemma that Snow faces when she sees that Charming did not make it to safety: Should she run with the jewels and fairy dust, or should she save Charming?

Of course, both Regina and Snow are also heroes, and they risk everything to save Charming and Emma, who are both grateful and who now see Snow/Regina in a new light.

After all their adventures together, it is time for our heroes to part ways. Though we know that this is not goodbye forever, Snow/Charming/Regina/Emma do not. Even though Snow and Regina believe that they are about to face a life of solitude, without hesitation they provide Charming and Emma with what they need to get a happy ending. For Charming, it is his mother’s engagement ring so he may propose to Kathryn, and for Emma it is new memories of a full life with Henry. Though Snow and Regina believe that Emma and Charming will find happiness, Emma and Charming struggle to have it because…

…they will not be sharing their lives with the people they love. This was the moment Charming fell in love with Snow, which was revealed in “Snow Drifts”.


Charming: “But it wasn’t until I saw my mother’s ring on her finger that I knew in my heart there was no other woman I would ever love.”
Snow: “I wish you had told me then. We would have saved so much time.”


So if this scene corresponds with the Swan Queen scene in “Going Home” then we can assume that this is the moment that Emma and Regina fall in love. It would explain why most Swen would say that this is their favorite scene, and why it feels like there should be an “I love you” somewhere in there. The feelings are there, but as Emma would say, it takes them a while to accept their feelings. Since Swan Queen is the modern Snowing, it is okay that they didn’t say anything here because it will happen in its own time.

The couples finally part ways and the scenes ends with Snow/Regina watching as Charming/Emma head off to their presumed “happy ending”.

In the time that Snow/Regina are alone away from the ones they love (for Regina it is Henry and Emma), they find it difficult to keep their minds off them, or escape the fact that they are never going to see them again. As a remedy for their pain, both women find the means to free themselves of their own thoughts. Snow obtains a forgetting potion from Rumplestiltskin, and Regina creates a sleeping curse for herself.

After this Charming sends a message to Snow revealing his love for her, she goes to meet him but is intercepted by King George, who tells her to break Charming’s heart or watch his death. She tells him that she doesn’t love him, and then returns home where she takes the forgetting potion, and becomes a dark version of herself. This is quite literally the only major scene in this early Snowing storyline that I could not find a direct comparison to a Swan Queen that fits the timeline. This is around the time that Robin and Hook came into play and started messing with everything, so I suppose George keeping Snow and Charming apart could be compared to the Beards keeping Swan Queen apart. As for Snow becoming a dark version of herself, this could parallel to Regina struggling with her darkness and keeping it at bay. I think this storyline with Snow was used to show that we all have the potential for darkness. Snow can lose love like Regina lost with Daniel, and become a vengeful person as well. On the flip side, we all have the potential for light, which is what they have been showing with Regina throughout the series.

The next scene realigns the storylines.

Snow, out for vengeance, is going to kill the Evil Queen, but not before Charming stops the arrow headed straight for Regina. Even though Snow did not remember him, Charming was unwilling to let Snow cross the line into darkness, and was prepared to die for that. This is the same as when Emma was unwilling to let Regina be consumed by darkness once more, and did not even question what would happen when she took on the darkness herself. Charming then broke Snow’s curse with true love’s kiss, and she remembered him again, and Swan Queen also did things in season 5.

Unfortunately, after Charming/Emma saved Snow/Regina they were taken away, forcing Snow and Regina to have to save Charming and Emma once again.

And really we are still trying to get Emma Swan back, am I right? She may be back physically, but I think we all know that this is not the same Emma Swan. Emma Swan is locked up somewhere in a jail cell within her own mind, like Charming who is locked in the Evil Queen’s dungeon. Season 5 Emma is a prisoner, and it is up to herself, Regina, Snow, Henry, Archie & everyone else to get her out.

Which finally brings us to season 6…

Theory time

In the final episodes of season 1, Snow White and her band of fairy tale misfits storm the Evil Queen’s castle to defeat her and save Prince Charming. 

Using what we have learned so far, the reason the Evil Queen has returned in season 6 is because we have reached that final battle in the story, and in the end, Snow White must face the Evil Queen and take a bite of the poison apple… only in this version Regina is Snow White.

So far canon has continued to follow the storyline. The Evil Queen has targeted Regina (aka Contemporary Snow White)…


Evil Queen: “There was a battle raging inside Regina. And she may have one the fight, but this is a war.”

So if things continue as they have been throughout the series, I’d be worried about Emma…

Also, if you ship CS, I’d be worried about Emma…

…and keep your eyes peeled for apples.

But don’t fret if our contemporary Snow White ends up taking a bite…

Because we all know that Prince Charming wakes her up in the end.

Or in this case Princess Charming.

Now I’m sure even with all this super awesome proof, many of you are still skeptical that Swan Queen will ever get their happy ending. It just doesn’t seem like they will ever find their way to one another! But need I remind you that it took Snowing fooooorever to finally be together. Even when Snow found Charming in the dungeon, and they were reunited, it turned out that Charming’s image was just being projected onto a magic mirror. There was no hope for them. All the forces of the universe were working to keep them apart. But Charming reassured Snow and said to her what I’m going to say to you about Swan Queen dear reader…

Character Analysis : Qrow Branwen

Here we go, let’s talk about the most popular character in RWBY since Volume 3, our favorite uncle : Qrow Branwen. Sure, he was always cool, but did we understand his motivations or anything else important ? No, I say ! So allow me to analyse Qrow so we can all appretiate him better !

Anyone who thinks Qrow isn’t a complete train wreck of a character is lying to themselves. Sure, he’s cool and he has this super awesome sword that does this clinky clanky thing and turns into this super awesome scythe that shoots shotgun shells and he’s got this radical red cape that’s all tattered and he’s one of the only characters to wear a cape like wow, what a badass ! He’s messed up. Big time. This poor guy’s never had it easy. He has a lot of psychological issues that make him one of the most vulnerable characters in the series. It’s why I love him so much. Complex characters FTW, am I right ?

Qrow, like Raven, was most likely raised by a bandit tribe, which seems to resides in Mistral. As to wether he was born between a bandit couple or if he was just taken in by the tribe remains unclear.

Now, there’s two possibilities as to how Qrow was during his time with the bandits.

1. He was completely one of them : He may have been a lot like Raven, thinking of the bandits as his “family”, completely turning a blind eye to what they are really doing.

2. He never agreed with them : He could’ve never truly felt like he belonged among the bandits, disagreeing with their way of doing things.

Either way, the next big event would change his life forever.

At some point in time, Raven and Qrow decided to attend Beacon Academy, most likely just to become even stronger than they already were, to ensure the bandit tribe’s survival. Once again, there’s two possibilities as to how events turned out when they decided to go to Beacon.

1. Raven was the one who decided that : Quite simple. Raven was like “lol training sequence” and Qrow was like “lol k” and tagged along. Not much else to say.

2. Qrow was the one who wanted to attend Beacon : This is the more interesting variation. If Qrow was the one who first said he wanted to go to the huntsman academy, then it might’ve been that he used training as an excuse to get away from the bandit tribe.

So, what happaned during Qrow and Raven’s time at Beacon ? There’s really only one confirmed story of team STRQ’s time at Beacon, and that would be the story of Qrow wearing a skirt. One might think that that story only has comedic value, but let’s think about that for a second: Qrow was so oblivious to fashion, that he litterally didn’t know what a skirt was, or at the very least what a uniform was supposed to be like. In my opinion, this illustrates perfectly well just how seperated Qrow was from regular society.

The next thing to talk about is obviously… So Qrow became an uncle. But what does that truly mean to him ? For the first time in his life, Qrow had a real “family”, other than Raven of course. Taiyang more or less became his brother-in-law and after Raven went back to the tribe (leaving Yang), he would later meet his second niece, whom he technically isn’t related to if you think about it.

Ok, but before we get to Qrows relationship with his nieces, let’s first go back a little to the part where Raven leaves for the tribe.

Surely, that must’ve been cause for an argument between the Branwen twins. On one hand, Qrow didn’t want to go back to the bandits, and on the other, Raven was willing to leave behind her newborn daughter. Neither could accept what the other was planning on doing. In short, I think Qrow had a falling out with his sister.

This line of thought also lines up well with Tai saying that the team fell apart due to Raven. I actually wondered if Tai and Qrow came to blows over Tai thinking Qrow knew where Raven went, but wouldn’t tell him. If Qrow did know, I could see him staying silent out of fear of Tai getting killed by their tribe or Yang getting taken by them if he went looking for Raven given that he didn’t want anything to do with the tribe. Summer probably would’ve tried to smooth things over though.

Now, let’s finally get back to Qrow and his nieces. Quite honestly, I think he thinks of them like his own daughters. They are (or at least Yang is) his first blood related family besides Raven. Qrow loves his nieces nontheless, which is quite evident, seeing how he always helps them out, gives them advice or even protects them from the Grimm, as shown during episode 4 of volume 4 and Yang’s flashback from volume 2. He obviously cares deeply for them.

Now, his drinking habit most likely originated around the time Summer died. It is still very unclear as to what happened at that time, so I can’t say anything about that….did you really think I would say that ? No ! There’s a lot of room for speculation. Firstly, Qrow seems to know much more about how the world works than Taiyang for example. And judging by the fact that he seems to know Salem, or at least what kind of being she is, we can guess that he may be the second most knowledgable person after Ozpin himself.

He knows about the Maidens, the Silver-Eyed Warriors, Salem, where Raven is and what the “relic” is. There are probably many more things that we’ve never even heard about, that he knows about. So, what does all of that have anything to do with Summer’s death or Qrow’s alcoholism ? Quite simple ! We should ask ourselves:

Why does he know all that in the first place?

It’s easy to just say: “Oh, Ozpin told him all this because he trusted him !”, and it would probably be correct. But why, of all trustworthy huntsmen and huntresses, was he chosen to join Ozpin’s “brotherhood” ?

It’s because he was already deeply involved. He found out about the Silver-Eyed Warriors while fighting alongside Summer Rose, his sister was the leader of a presumably powerful bandit tribe, with whom he can trade information with and finally: He found out about Salem most likely when they had directly confronted her, ending with Summer’s death.

By the way, I also have a little theory about that : Taiyang might’ve been absent during that mission Summer died in. Why do I think that ?

For two reasons in particular :

1. The way Yang described the day Summer disappeared : Yang, in volume 2 during her flashback, stated that Summer had ‘one day gone on a mission and never came back’. Notice the wording here ? She never said that BOTH her parents had gone on that mission.

2. Qrow and Taiyang’s frictional relationship : During this mission with Summer, I think Qrow came back home alone. Maybe Taiyang blames Qrow for not being able to save/protect Summer, or if Taiyang is aware of the effect of Qrow’s semblance, he grudges him to be one of the causes of her death. I don’t know it’s just a theory, but it’s the wibe I fell from their interactions with each other. In volume 4, when Qrow speaks in his sleep which refers to Tai and one of his wives. It is implied that Qrow blames himself for her death because of his misfortune but that is still up in the air.

Plus, that friction between Taiyang and Qrow arose because Taiyang is still trying to protect the girls from the world, while Qrow feels that they’re ready to confront it on their own. Also, during the volume 3 finale, Qrow asked Taiyang for a moment alone with Ruby. During which, he told her about the silver eyes.I think the reason Qrow wanted Taiyang to leave for that part of the conversation was because Qrow was telling Ruby where to go when she leaves, something Taiyang would obviously disapprove of. And, I might simply be reading too much into this, but my theory is that Taiyang might not even know what the silver eyes are yet. That in turn makes me think that Taiyang is still mostly oblivious to the bigger picture.

And finally, what’s make him more a wreck mentally : his Semblance ! After Qrow has been posioned by Tyrian, he once again explains a lot of information to RNJR, showing his knowledge off once again. He also explains that he followed them from a distance because of his semblance, misfortune. This made his character even more interesting, making me want to learn a lot more about his character and made me feel for his character. This also explained why he drinks so much because of how his misfortune may of affected some events in his past.

Before we wrap this up, there’s one more trait of Qrow we haven’t discussed: His womanizing aspect. Granted, the womanizing is mostly Taiyang’s thing, but Qrow shows this trait as well sometimes. So, does that have any significance to his character ?

Maybe. Unless RT just added this for the heck of it, it may be that Qrow’s womanizing illustrates a secret wish to start his own family as well. A man of his age thinking about children isn’t really such a weird thing either. In fact, I think these two would make a cute pair : I LOVE SNOWBIRD/QROWIN !

Overall, I love the way Qrow has been presented as a character and I cannot wait to see how he develops as a character in Volume 5 and what we learn about him. Thanks for reading !

Sabertooth headcanons

Here we go!

History

  • Sabertooth was created around the same time Fairy Tail was. It was supposed to be a safe place for people that had nowhere to go after the Second Trade War. They chose the name Sabertooth in the hopes that it would make bad people think twice before starting a conflict with them.
  • They heavily relied on the public image they’ve created for themselves, but the truth was they wouldn’t be able to withstand a conflict with another guild or a group of bandits/mercenaries.
  • All they wanted was to start anew. Peace, honor, respect. Those were the things they valued. The first Sabertooth generation focused mainly on building or escorting jobs.
  • The guild managed to survive for many years, but it wasn’t really popular, which meant it didn’t have many members.
  • It wasn’t until Jiemma, an orphaned kid, joined the guild and started influencing the other members to change the way Sabertooth dealt with things. He wanted to transform this guild into a formidable force that would make people tremble with fear whenever they heard its name.
  • It took him a few years, but he achieved his goal. He was a charismatic young man that wouldn’t stop in the face of anything to achieve his goal.
  • If there was anyone Jiemma cared about, that was the old guild master. The man was nearing the end of his life, barely able to walk, but he’d showed kindness to the young man and took him in when no one else would.
  • Out of respect for that man, Jiemma decided to take over the guild in as peaceful a way as possible. Nevertheless, the old guild master was heartbroken by the path Jiemma had chosen to walk on and died a couple of days later.

General

  • Sting is really passionate about changing the ways of the guild, but he knows he has to work together with his guildmates in order to achieve that. That’s why he doesn’t really consider himself a guild master, but a team leader of sorts.
  • All the members take part in making the decisions that concern Sabertooth’s future. No one ever hesitates to share their opinion, even if it differs from that of their guild master.
  • Rogue is proud of his blond friend. He puts himself out there, makes mistakes, but learns from them and grows. Rogue was hesitant about telling him all this, but one day it just happened. Sting had never blushed harder before.
  • Sting has a sweet tooth. He can never get enough of Yukino’s or Minerva’s homemade sweets. His favorite is a chocolate cake with raspberries - a recipe the two girls came up with together.
  • Yukino is a good cook. She makes the best chocolate chip cookies her guildmates have ever tasted. Every Monday morning she brings some in a cute little basket to the guild. They get devoured in a matter of seconds.
  • When she was a kid, Minerva never really thought about what she wanted to do or what hobbies she’d like to have. That’s why she asked Yukino to teach her how to cook. To Minerva’s surprise, she turned out to be quite good at it. Yukino’s delighted to have a student. She even thinks about becoming a teacher at the local school, but is afraid that missions would get in the way and she’d miss classes.
  • Rogue and Rufus prefer spicy food. When they go on a mission together, they always try the local cuisine and the spicy dishes after they’re job is done.
  • Half of Rufus’ apartment is turned into an old-fashioned library. The guy loves enjoying a good book while drinking some high-quality black or green tea.
  • Despite seeming a bit overconfident at times, Orga is actually “the wise grandpa” of the guild. Whether he realizes it or not, his guildmates always come to him for advice.
  • Similar to Gajeel, he loves music and singing, so he’s very careful when it comes to what to eat and drink, especially before a performance at the local club when it’s Amateurs’ Night.
  • Dobengal has gone to a few of those Amateurs’ Nights, but he hasn’t gathered the courage to go up on the stage yet - and he’s a damn fine singer, much better than Orga is.
  • Dobengal is actually a master martial artist. He’s been training from a very young age, but rarely talks about it. He doesn’t like showing off.
  • The guild has a photo album in which they put pictures from special occasions - birthdays, holidays, eating competitions, pool parties, etc. It’s kept in the guild where everyone can see it and go through the pictures.
  • Sabertooth organizes charity events twice a year. They’ve raised money for orphanages, hospitals, animal shelters, retirement homes. They don’t like being too public about it, though. What matters to them is helping people in need, which was the purpose of this guild right from the start.

Halloween

  • Halloween is the guild’s favorite holiday! Everyone loves dressing up!
  • They have a tradition of keeping their costumes a secret from the other guild members. Duplicating costumes happen every year, but no one minds.
  • Rogue’s favorite costume is one he made the year Sting became a guild master. It’s the same as the one Frosch usually wears, but, you know, Rogue-sized.
  • Rufus is the one who enjoys Halloween the most. Thanks to his quirk and his information-gathering skills, he always chooses a costume that’s popular and that’s not gonna go unnoticed. He takes pride in that.
  • Dobengal prefers wearing different ninja costumes or traditional samurai ones. Not just that, he sews his own costumes every year.
  • Minerva is really into making Halloween candy. She once made cookies in the form of a witch’s finger. Everyone else thought kids were gonna be grossed out by them, but they were wrong. Kids were super impressed and even started creating stories about how those fingers were real and only turn into cookies on Halloween.
  • Every year on Halloween, exactly at 10pm, all members of Sabertooth visit either the children of the local hospital or the ones from the orphanage. They give them candy and play with them for hours. They love seeing the smiles on the kids’ faces. That makes them feel like they’re on the right path with Sabertooth.

Instead, he’s run from a system that works to end class differences and improve equality for its citizens. Happy as he is to make the world a better place, Phil can’t help feeling bitter towards his ancestors for making it impossible for him to find someone who will actually love him for more than just his title, and strives instead for a life of justice and doing good - only to meet his match in the King of Thieves, a man who will change everything he once thought he knew in life. Together, they must depart on a quest to save the kingdom, and, in the process, destroy their differences and find their own form of love.

Diverging Paths

Fourth Prompt for @nalu-week2017.
Second Day: Tarot; where Natsu and Lucy meet in a different time under MUCH different circumstances.


As Princess of the Realm, Lucy had many obligations. Her father, King Jude of Heartfilia had his fair share as well, hence why his only daughter was currently packed into a carriage on her way to meet her future husband. In order to preserve peace between their two nations, her father had promised her hand in marriage to Prince Dan in the neighboring country to the South. Unfortunately, she was used to feeling like a bargaining chip.

Sitting in the ornately decorated, wood cart, Lucy stared out the window at the passing landscape, sighing to herself quietly. Her Royal Guards, Erza and Gray, sat on the bench opposing her, bickering about their responsibilities once they arrived in their new home. She’d been lucky when Dan had allowed her to bring two of her closest loved ones with her. Even the fact that he’d allowed her to do anything made her want to scoff. All that did was set the tone for what she knew would be the rest of her miserable days.

“Cheer up, Lucy,” Erza remarked warmly, drawing the princess’s attention her friends. “I’ve been assured that the King’s castle has a beautifully maintained garden. Perhaps we could take a walk through it after we’ve settled in our quarters.”

“If my new jailer permits,” Lucy grumbled, crossing her arms delicately over her chest, as much as the tightly laced bodice would allow of course. All she’d done was move from one prison to the next. At least she wouldn’t be completely alone. Sighing, she dropped her shoulders and attempted to relax. “Sorry, Erza,” she said, her royally influenced smile etching on her lips. “You’re right. I’m sure they’re beautiful.”

Gray was the next one to voice his opinion. “I don’t get why your Father picked this guy, apparently he’s a royal pain in the ar–.” He didn’t get to finish his thought before Erza punched him in the arm, hard. His steely gaze turned on his ally quickly. “Was that really necessary?!”

The two soldiers were bickering before Lucy knew it, causing the blonde to laugh at the familiarity of it all. It felt like she was home again, easing the ache in her heart for a moment. All before disaster struck.

go on and fill my lungs with light

Five ways Amy Santiago planned to tell Jake Peralta she loved him: Romantic Cruise Stylez. Oh, and the one way it eventually worked out. 


a prologue.

Amy Santiago is five years old the first time she imagines falling in love. She’s stuck at home with the flu, and her mother has brought her a bowl of chicken noodle soup to drink while they watch daytime soaps together. The two main characters are sitting in a hospital waiting room, holding hands while they wait to see whether or not the girl is pregnant. Amy watches as the boy takes a breath and turns, bringing his hands to frame his girlfriend’s face.

“Marcia ,” he whispers, “ whatever the test results are, whether you’re pregnant or not…. I want you to know that I love you. I love you more than anything. I want to spend the rest of my life loving you, and nothing will ever change that, I swear .”

“Terrible,” Mama groans, wrinkling her nose. “A hospital is no place to declare love like that for the first time, especially when it’s your own fault the girl’s pregnant!”

Amy slurps her soup and giggles. “Mama,” she asks after a moment, “when did you and Papi first say ‘I love you’?”

Mama smiles, turning towards Amy and grabbing the remote to switch the tv off. “Well,” she says, “Your Papi was quite the romantic. We had been dating for a few months: going out to nice dinners and dancing, he’d taken me on picnics and walks through the parks and to movies I liked, and decided that he loved me–”

“Did you love him back?”

“Of course, mija,” Mama says, kissing Amy’s forehead. “To be honest, I would have said it first if he hadn’t beaten me to it.” She pulls away. “He took me out to my favorite spot, a park bench next to a beautiful garden, and just as the sun was setting over the horizon he whispered ‘te amo’ in my ear.”

Mama looks at Amy and brings up her hand to brush a strand of hair off of Amy’s slightly damp forehead. “Oh Amy,” she sighs, “I hope you have a story like that someday.”

And Amy Santiago, all of five years old and slightly feverish looks up at her Mama, looks at all of the love in her eyes and makes herself a promise.

“I will,” Amy says. “I’ll have a story just as perfect as yours.”

 “This is the Book of Life.”

 "All the world is made of stories, and all of those stories are right here.“

 "Long ago, in the center of Mexico, was the quaint little town of San Angel.”

 "And naturally, directly below it lay the Land of the Remembered, a festive and magic place for those who lived on in the memories of their loved ones!“

 "And below that lies the Land of the Forgotten. The sad and lonely destination for those poor souls who are no longer remembered.”

 "But, before I can properly begin this story, you must meet the magical rulers of these two realms.“

 "That is La Muerta. She is made out of sweet sugar candy. She loves all mankind, and believes their hearts are pure and true.”

 "And that is Xibalba. That charming rascal thinks mankind is not so pure, just like him. He’s made out of tar and everything icky in the whole world.“

 "And that is the Candlemaker. He keeps everything in balance. He is made out of wax and has a beard full of clouds.”

 "See all these wooden figures here? They represent real people in our story, just like you and me.“

 "And so our story begins, on the day that the people of Mexico call the Day of the Dead, and on this particular Day of the Dead, after centuries of being banished, Xibalba had had enough.”

Emma didn’t plan on keeping it a secret, per se, she just wanted a chance to figure out exactly how she felt about Killian before everyone and their goats started giving their opinions on her relationship. So, the morning after their return from the past, she and Killian were sharing a booth at Granny’s but they were, in Emma’s opinion, sitting a respectable distance apart and not doing any obvious coupley things. Granny quickly shattered any dreams Emma had of her relationship having some privacy as she came to deliver their breakfast.

“Are you two going to sit there and pretend nobody saw you making out like a couple of teenagers last night?”

Somethin' Bad teaser

Remember that AU I mentioned yesterday? This is exactly that. Inspired by the song of the same name by Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood. Also, note that it won’t officially start until after resbang.

Star tossed the file on top of Soul’s desk, the papers in the manila folder gently fanning out on top of the other paperwork on his desk. The white haired man glanced down at the folder, a look of disgust plastered on his face, before moving his eyes toward his partner

“The hell do you want me to do with this?”

“Just look through it, Evans.”

Soul rolled his eyes, far too used to how bossy the man before him was, and turned the folder along with the contents toward him before opening it up. Flipping through the papers he caught keywords letting him know this was about the case of the mysterious women who had already traveled clear across sixteen cities in Texas in about two years, leaving high crime bank robberies in their trail. They were two criminals the FBI were not able to arrest yet due to the fact that no one knew what they really looked like.

But why was Black Star - the delicately chosen pseudonym of the blue haired man - giving him it?

“Again,” Soul closed the folder with a little too much force than was necessary, “why the hell are you giving this to me?”

Star crossed his arms on his chest and scoffed down at his partner. “Isn’t it obvious? You and I are taking this case. Why the fuck else would I give you the damn folder?”

Soul looked down at the folder. It would be a great decision on their part since basically the whole office thought they were a pair of buffoons who couldn’t do a damn thing right. If him and Star were the ones who took down the criminals, they would be worshipped among their department; hell the whole building even! This case could finally be their big break, and also lead to that raise he’s been wanting for the last ten years.

The only problem was they didn’t know where the women were.

Watch on coffin-of-eternal-darkness.tumblr.com

There’s a new Unjust Sin Trailer!
Together with a bit more information, so first of all: It WILL follow the original storyline but there will also be an original story, supervised by Suzuki Nakaba, which we can see parts of in the trailer above.

Elizabeth: A, a big owl…?
Is this owl, too, a soul that is controlled by the “Abominable Souls”…?!

????: …. Please don’t mind me.
Fight.
Fairy King, Harlequinn.

I’m not sure this part of the story is set in Britannia (or some other part of the “real” world), it looks like some kind of dream world to me, though it’s not stated anywhere. But the talk about souls makes me think they’re trapped in another dimension, similar to the Capital of the Dead. Well, we’ll see.

We can also see a small part of the quest list in the trailer. Some of the quests are events we already know from the manga/anime, but there’s also a lot of interesting and funny quests that don’t have to do wit the story at all and you can even get costumes.
We have

  • Ban on a treasure hunt
  • Ban’s clothes (takes place in Byzel after he lost his shirt and you’ll have to search for a new one)
  • Ban and stuffed animals
  • Fighting festival, again!
  • powerless King
  • The sick princess
  • Bunny Diane
  • Sweets recipe

Yeah, recipes! You search for recipes and let Ban cook! Maybe instead of normal healing items you get Ban’s cooking? Or it increases your stats for some time? Maybe you’ll even need it for some quest? Whatever it is, it seriously reminds me of Tales games, but not as much as the costumes.
We could see some of the costumes in the trailer too.

So, costumes include

  • Swimsuits
  • School Uniforms (both, the UNO crossover AND the spinoff manga)
  • Maid uniform (for Elizabeth)
  • Princess and Commoner (Elizabeth (& Hawk))
  • Print 1 (Elizabeth & Hawk?)
  • Print 2 (Elizabeth & Hawk?)
  • Veronica’s clothes (for Elizabeth)
  • Bunny Girl (Diane)
  • Bandit Ban (for Ban obviously)
  • Danafor uniform (for Meliodas)
  • Shingeki no Kyojin/Attack on Titan Uniform (shown only for Meliodas yet, but maybe the others’ll get it too)

What else? Attachments! This really looks like Tales of…

  • Pig Nose
  • Cat Ears
  • Bunny Ears
  • Boar Hat Hat (Diane with the school uniform wears it)
  • Ban doll
  • Elaine doll (as you can see on Ban)
  • Guardian doll (whatever that is)
  • Suzuki Nakaba (YES THE AUTHOR (it’s the pig hat that Hawk and Elizabeth wear))
  • Ribbon
  • Glasses
  • Gowther’s arrow
  • Chicken Matango (whatever that is)

So yeah, I guess there’s a lot of fun stuff to do!

So, that’s it for now, hope you liked it~

The original story looks really interesting so far and I’m looking forward to it! And of course to customizing my characters (nobody can stop me from equipping Ban with the Elaine doll forever)!
