Prompt:

Levi + Mikasa: Passing the Mantle/There can only be the one


So...one of my friends strongly believes that Mikasa is gradually building up to be Levi's replacement in the story and that Levi will be killed off at some point. Anons, I want to see a heartwrenching scene where Levi passes on his title as Humanity's Strongest Soldier to Mikasa while he lays dying on the battlefield.

Bonus points for:
-Hints of Levi/Mikasa
-Levi having faith in her capabilities.

C'MON ANONS, GIVE ME FEELS.

It showed in the Atlanta Symphony hall for the seventh and the eighth of June. I went on the eighth.

It. Was. Amazing. Beyond. Words. It was awesome being surrounded by so many Final Fantasy fans (me and Monique even chatted with three sitting in front of us)--some were even cosplaying or had brought merc of the series. Alas I didn't buy anything because the merc at the concert was too pricy for what I had on me at the time.

One of the highlights of the evening was definitely hearing Susan Calloway sing. At first I was a little bothered by the fact that she took deep breaths through her mouth rather than her nose (a sign she hasn't been properly trained) but her powerful voice quickly won me over, especially in her cover of Eyes on Me. MIND. BLOWN. Another song she covered was Suteki da ne which was just as beautiful (though I still prefer Erutan's cover of it).

6/8/2013 Program:


  • Final Fantasy Series: Main theme (Is it bad I was quoting Brentalfloss' cover on it?)

  • Final Fantsy I-III: Medley 2002

  • Final Fantasy VIII: Eyes on Me (Her best performance of the night. But then I'm biased towards VIII)

  • Final Fantasy IV: Battle with the Four Fiends (Is it bad I was hearing this while picturing Hyadain's version?)

  • Final Fantasy V: Main theme

  • Final Fantasy X: Zanarkand (One of my favorite compositions in the FFX OST)

  • Final Fantasy XI: Distant Worlds

  • Final Fantasy VIII: Don't be afraid (at one point they showed the Dollet sequence in the screen and I kept quoting "Chicken wuss!" at seeing Zell get all pissy towards Seifer. There was also one bit where I wondered if someone was playing the game backstage at that very moment XD)

  • Final Fantasy Series: Chocobo Medley 2012 (Definitely one of the more animated moments. Especially when they switched to Mambo de Chocobo from V)

INTERMISSION (where much fangirling/boying was had)


  • Final Fantasy VII: Opening--Bombing Mission

  • Final Fantasy XIII: Blinded by the Light

  • Final Fantasy VI: Phantom Forest

  • Final Fantasy IX: You're Not Alone (One of the highlights of the evening for me. I was even quoting Erutan's cover on it!)

  • Final Fantasy X: Suteki da ne (While I didn't know the lyrics, I did enjoy Susan Calloway's cover)

  • Final Fantasy XI: Vana'diel March

  • Final Fantasy VII: Aerith's Theme (Again, started quoting Erutan)

  • Final Fantasy Series: Battle/Victory Theme Medley

  • Final Fantasy VI: Terra's Theme (I love Terra's theme so inwardly I squeed XD)

ENCORE


  • One Winged Angel (Not only that but the audience got to sing along! I felt we all sounded a bit shy at first but quickly gained more confidence throughout. IT WAS AWESOME.)


Overall, it was a wonderful experience and well worth the money spent in getting the tickets. Hopefully there will be a repeat experience in the future.

On another unrelated note, have a Seto Kaiba AMV with You Know My Name (I'VE BEEN LOOKING EVERYWHERE FOR AN AMV OF SETO KAIBA WITH A JAMES BOND THEME XD):

alkonost_storm: (Seto and FM!Set)
Kaiba laugh

Am I the only one thinking Kaiba looks a bit derpy laughing like that?^

Seto in GX
Seto in GX 2
Seto in GX 3
Seto in GX 4

You can tell where most of my attention was focused on in this episode.

Where Avion wonders what the fuck he's been summoned into
What the flying fuck he was summoned into.

Where GX shows Cartoon Physics
By manipulating the splitscreen! Then again, he is half-dinosaur...(?)

Sweatdropping Sign
Jaden's sense of direction can apparently give Ryoga's a run for its money.


Dino eye
It's never a good thing when THAT shows itself...

Dinoberry and Cyrusbug
Dinoberry and Cyrusbug 2

Dinoberry and Cyrusbug 2013~! Also, Yugioh GX has embraced its predecessor's tradition of going down the Tron Route.

Avion sweatdrop
Of Avion's sweatdrop!

BL Alert
The moment I see this screencap? Slashed. FOREVER. ABYDOS/JUDAI IS CRACK OTP

Even Zane finds this silly
When even Zane is sweatdropping, you know things have gotten too silly.

WHY...

Turbo Duelist Kaiba

ISN'T THIS A [OFFICIAL] THING!?

Story behind the screencap: someone edited the 5Ds opening to feature the original YGO cast in place of the 5Ds one. As you can see, it works ludicrously well (and Kaiba is wearing the hell out of Jack Atlas' outfit there).

So naturally I'm torn: Psyched because OMG I'M NOT THE ONLY WHO'S CONSIDERED THE WHAT-IF OF YGO DM CAST IN 5DS. But also DESPAIRING FOREVER BECAUSE IT IS NOT OFFICIAL. D=
alkonost_storm: (Brothers)

ERMAGERD. THE CUTE. JUST. THE. CUTE.

Warning: Slight mentions of food porn

AlkonostStorm: Throughout the weekend the cocktail of good things vs bad things would be a heady mixture. On the one hand, the doubled funds from MacDowan corp. prompted others to do the same, so in that sense things were going incredibly well. On the other, Seto and Theoris were awkward around each other for most of the week.

JW%: For Seto, 'awkward' seemed to be normal enough. Which wasn't necessarily a good thing, but it didn't do cause any harm to his productivity at least. Mokuba on the other hand was growing worried. That weekend he voiced a concern that the two of them were fighting.

AlkonostStorm: "F-fighting? Last I checked we weren't. Fighting that is." Did avoiding each other count as fighting? She wasn't sure...

JW%: The boy frowned. "Why did you answer like that." He broke into a triumphant grin. "Because you're feeling guilty! You are fighting with Big Brother!"

AlkonostStorm: "I am not fighting with Seto. I was just...just dealing with womanly issues I can't avoid even if I tried."

JW%: "Riiiight. You're fighting. And my big brother is going to win!"

"Shut up Mokuba." Seto said coming down the hallway to shoo the boy away.

AlkonostStorm: She watched as he shooed the boy away, relieved she wouldn't have had to explain herself further. Granted, Mokuba probably had SOME knowledge about menstruation by this point thanks to school but still, it was awkward having to explain that.

JW%: Seto did order Theoris flowers and chocolates that evening, but did not visit her, and without plans, he mostly continued with work and kept an eye on Mokuba's antics.

AlkonostStorm: Theoris did store away the chocolates but she didn't do anything with the flowers, leaving them be. Personally, she was more than a little irked by the gifts: if they were meant to replace his presence, they failed utterly at that. After a few seconds, she grabbed the box of chocolates and headed over to his room, knocking on the door.

JW%: "Yes?" Seto answered.

AlkonostStorm: "I..." There was a pause as she showed him the box of chocolates. "Want some? I could never eat this all by myself." Pause. "And I...I missed you."

JW%: He opened the door and let her in, gesturing for her to head to the bed.

AlkonostStorm: She walked into the room, moving to sit on the bed and placing the box beside her as she removed her slippers and pulled her legs up before crossing them.

JW%: He took a moment to consider her, gazing along her legs as she crossed them before her. "Lean back." He told her, taking a chocolate from the box.

AlkonostStorm: Dark chocolate shell with mint filling... She remembered as she leaned back for him, using the headboard as support.

JW%: "This is probably going to sound rather strange." Seto told her, feeding her the chocolate. "But I've been wanting to do this for about a week now."

AlkonostStorm: She took a moment to savor the treat, appreciating the combination of dark chocolate mixing with the minty filling to combine something new. "What? Feed me chocolate?" Theoris straightened and reached for the box, picking out a white chocolate lump lightly dusted with cinnamon and containing a coffee filling. "Now you lean back."

JW%: "Feed you chocolate... rub your feet... pamper and worship you... something along those lines." He said, leaning back against some pillows.

AlkonostStorm: She smiled slightly, placing the chocolate in his mouth before moving to lie down on her side, facing him. "That's very sweet of you."

JW%: He seemed more inclined to suck her finger than the chocolate, though he closed his eyes in enjoyment of it. He liked the coffee flavor filling. He took a moment just to lay there eyes closed on the bed with her.

AlkonostStorm: She moved a bit closer to him, her forehead lightly pressed against his own as they relaxed, enjoying each other's presence in comfortable silence.

JW%: "I suppose I should get started, shouldn't I?" He finally sighed.

AlkonostStorm: "We could just keep on with what we started." She told him as she leaned away to reach for the box again.

JW%: "If that's what you'd like." He smiled, and caught her fingertips, lifting the bit of chocolate to his own lips.

AlkonostStorm: This time, it was a dark chocolate with mango filling. Theoris did not immediately pull her fingers away, watching as his lips brushed past them. After a second, she withdrew her hand, gazing into his eyes.

JW%: He took a bite of the chocolate, and then held the other half for her to taste, closing his eyes and leaning against her again.

AlkonostStorm: She leaned in, taking the other half from his fingers with her mouth, blinking once when it dawned on her they had just shared an indirect kiss. Of course, it was entirely possible he had planned that...

JW%: He had, though the fact that he followed it up with an actual kiss didn't hurt matters either.

AlkonostStorm: She returned the kiss, one hand going up to caress his cheek. Theoris couldn't recall a time they had slowed down like this but she wasn't complaining either. It was...nice. Warm. Intimate.

JW%: He stroked her shoulder and reached for another chocolate, but let his hand rest near the box as he simply gazed into her eyes and waited.

AlkonostStorm: She pulled back, giving a slight nod so that he could go ahead and pick.

JW%: He picked another one with a kind of cream filling and offered it to her first this time, moving to kiss her almost immediately to get the flavor from her lips and tongue.

AlkonostStorm: Milk chocolate with a cream almond filling. Theoris barely had time to chew and swallow, never mind savor, before he moved in for the kiss. This time it lasted a bit longer than the first but was still slow and gentle.

JW%: "You're still not... in the mood for something more physical, are you?" He asked touching her cheek with his knuckles, to avoid his sticky fingers touching her face.

AlkonostStorm: "Not yet. Soon, perhaps but...right now I just want your company, Seto." She said, wrapping her arms around him in a hug.

JW%: "I'm fine with that." He said, putting his arm around her, but not squeezing, just holding her gently. "So I don't have to rub your feet?"

AlkonostStorm: "I'll take a rain check on that one." She told him, a teasing note in her voice as she spoke.

JW%: "I suppose I'll have to owe you." He said, teasing her as well, and leaning in to touch their noses together for a moment while he gazed into her eyes.

EXACTLY WHAT IT SAYS ON THE TIN. LET'S GET STARTED:



Dark Scorpions Sentai

Episode synopsis says they're a special subgroup within the Shadow Riders...but when the episode starts pulling out moments like this...XD

DBZ with CARD GAMES

VEGETA HAVE YOU BEEN TAKING HAIR CARE TIPS FROM MORIKAWA!? AND WHY ARE YOU IN JONOUCHI'S UNIFORM!?

Derpy fanart

I'm sorry but this had to be immortalized, especially since Banner's depictions of Yugi and Seto look so derpy. XD

FIRE MISSILES

...Yeah, not even going there. Too easy.

Lack of sleep

This one isn't so funny as it is wondering if the darker-than-usual shading was intentional, as if to reflect that Seto's been losing sleep over the whole "hologram" fiasco.

Not just for Kaibas

Or his Expies. ANYONE CAN HAVE THE LIFT IT SEEMS.

Possible relative of Yugi

If she is a Motou, her hair is relatively tame for one! Still, dem bangs...

This made me lol

I was laughing too hard when this came up. I probably shouldn't have been but it made my day XD

Shadow Game duel: Theoris vs Sion
Outcome: Theoris loses
Decks: Her Dragon-themed deck vs his Lovecraftian Deck
Sacred Items: Sacred Menat vs Sacred Was. (Tbh, the Menat didn't see much use)

Quite possibly Theoris would have achieved her plan of pulling them both down to a draw. Unfortunately, Sion really did a number in messing with her head. Like to the point where she was reduced to her knees and crying because he struck where it would hurt most--using an illusory Seto that simply abandoned her. Just turned and walked away. Would be very surprised if by the end of Battle City she's not suffering some form of PTSD.

In any case, she lost the duel and is currently comatose. Sion was using his Was to control her like a puppet and leave with her (along with the heavy implication that he will be doing very questionable things with her body) but then Henutawwy butts in from within the menat, freezing him in place while Seto makes his way down to the arena (it goes without saying that both spirit and CEO are royally pissed off).

We left off with the duel about to start.

PercentiledOne, you may call that scene "crazy" but I thought it was AMAZING EPIC. AND I WAS THE ONE WHOSE CHARACTER WAS ON THE RECEIVING END OF THE MIND****!

Mmm...dat uniform...

...*cough*

Let's ignore the fact that the thought that brought about this idea in the first place was the mental image itself mmmkay?

His name would be Demian Kaiser. He'd be the leader of a tank team (with Noa and Mokuba's incarnations as teammates. SURPRISINGLY NO ONE IS RELATED TO ONE ANOTHER. For the record, Nazi!Noa is the spotter and Nazi!Mokuba is the mechanic. Demian handles both driving and shooting) and his tank would bear the affectionate nickname of "Fraulein Blitz." It may or may not have a BEWD decal on the side. Allied!Yugi would be his rival (DUR) and lead a tank team of his own. HIS tank bears the epithet of Dark Maiden and probably has a DMG decal on its side.

I mostly embellished but the credit for this incarnation goes to PercentiledOne. NEEDLESS TO SAY WE'RE OVERTHINKING THINGS A BIT.

By happy accident I found episodes of Yu-Gi-Oh! Season 0 uploaded on Youtube. And now I totally get why Toff was going ga-ga over Season 0!Yami Yugi HNNNNG DAT VOICE I'm nearly done with the season and now want to watch the rest so I can make comparisons with the 4Kids dub. Anyone know where I can find them? Also I've gotten used to Season 0!Kaiba...except when he's trying to act nice because then he's just a total creeper and the trope of "WE WANT OUR JERK BACK" starts blaring in my head...

So, I reiterate:

Anyone know where I can find the Japanese dub for the rest of the show? Preferably with English subtitles.

BUT THEN I SAW THE HOBBIT FILM.

AND IT. WAS. GLORIOUS.

THEY DID NOT JUST STAY FAITHFUL TO THE BOOK THEY EXPANDED ON STUFF WE NEVER SEE.

AND THORIN. OH EM GEE THORIIIN.

I SUDDENLY FIND I DO NOT MIND BEARDS AS MUCH AS I DID BEFORE. 8DDD
alkonost_storm: (BATTLE PIGEON)
I DID.

FERAL CHAOS IS NOW MINE TO CONTROL.

OMG I ACTUALLY PULLED IT OFF.

TEAM (MOSTLY) GIRL POWER BEAT 000.

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

My thanks to:

Kain Highwind (who did more damage than I expected in the first round and showed that certain attacks can be dodged)
Yuna (who successfully whittled down FC's health to way down the halfway mark)
Lightning (who did her best, although with her attacks it was difficult to trap FC and keep him trapped)
Cloud of Darkness (who despite that her available attacks were the basic ones, managed to damage FC quite a bit, particularly with Anti-Air Beams)
Terra Branford (who finished him off and won the battle)

I reiterate:

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
