And now here is the thing I’ve been secretly so excited over for the past two and a half weeks or so! This beautiful commission from artist acedrawin who is wonderful and does wonderful work!
So thanks to spaceoperetta coming up with a crossover AU for Ace Attorney and best TV show ever Slings & Arrows, this Narumitsu idea has refused to leave my head. In short, post-disbarment Phoenix goes back to his theatre roots and ends up as a director for a struggling theatre company while dodging rumors that he’s “mentally unstable.” Which isn’t very easy to do when the love of your life won’t stop talking to you and arguing with you about Shakespeare. Especially if the love of your life is a ghost that only you can see and hear.
And one very important thing I think I need to point out here: the dialogue they’re speaking in this art is actually from Hamlet. Okay, Miles’ line is a paraphrase, but Phoenix’s is word-for-word. I am not making this up.
comparing the movie about wizards with laser swords to movies like the Martian and Interstellar because they’re set in space is like comparing Beauty and the Beast to Les Miserables because they’re set in France
Do people have any idea how offensive it is to see someone say that Swen should stop complaining and be glad that we might get a Ruby/Mulan (for example) pairing? That we asked for representation, so here we go, stop being ungrateful.
It’s like saying that people shouldn’t ask for CS or OQ (for example) because hey, you already got Snowing, that’s representation enough isn’t it?
I mean who cares it’s two characters that haven’t been featured much together on the show, who cares they haven’t had any buildup. Who cares if it’s not the two characters people have been rooting for for years now, an organically buildup pairing people have been invested in for a long time.
We should just be happy with a token pairing right? A few scraps thrown our way five years too late.
These two are a couple! I can’t believe I never realized it before when I did the Wanderer’s Palace quest originally (probably because I just clicked through it OTL). Check under the read-more for their dialog.
In light of MMB’s comments last week about Carol wearing a
mask, all of the celebrating that is currently being done by the haters is a
little premature. Even without MMB’s feedback, it is clear that Carol is not
Okay, yes, if we had our way, Carol would not be locking
lips with someone else. Absolutely not going to deny that. But she does not
appear to be emotionally invested in this relationship because, let’s face it –
She is not emotionally stable right now. You can’t go from clutching a rosary
to the point of making yourself bleed to finding happiness back at Alexandria once
the immediate threat is gone. I don’t know what Tobin is to Carol at this point
– A distraction, a pawn in her game of disguises, etc. I do know that she is
not emotionally attached to him, certainly not the way she is attached to
Daryl. MMB confirmed this when she talked about what Daryl meant to Carol, and
how Carol can only BE HERSELF around Daryl.
There is no reason to stop shipping Caryl or to tell
Carylers that our ship is dead. This is TV, where characters come and go and bounce around from one relationship to the next, when the most obvious choice is right there in front of them.
There is obviously something between Daryl and
Carol that has yet to be defined. A few kisses between two characters, one of whom is
emotionally walled-up and just going through the motions, do not point to epic
Reasons I still believe Caryl is endgame: Daryl has yet to
be romantically attached to anyone else. Carol and Daryl are both still alive.
The hug at the end of 6x13.
