need a tshirt that says “ask me about my trans* headcanons”
I will be on that train with you! I haven’t thought about the OT3 much but it looks excellent at first glance and I already love kirigiri/maizono SO.tell me about this train. please. i love maizono/kirig but i am curious as to how mukuro fits into it
I think like. AGES ago I was some random anon who sent messages about it one day during a ship ask meme, to bri…hm. Let me see if I could convince either of you now.
Kirigiri/Maizono is really easy, I think that everyone ships it really well if they do.
The thing about adding in Mukuro is that Maizono is a lot like Junko. She is! She’s fashionable and beautiful, she’s manipulative to this amazing degree, she has done bad things to get to where she is in society. I like to think that both Junko and Maizono are really pissed about the inherent misogyny that consumes the system as well, but have very different plans about that of course…I like to think about Mukuro having seen Maizono go on tours, and seen her while she was with her troupe in Europe once, and been reminded of Japan, and reminded of the young people she has killed, and reminded of how everything she does is for her sister…seeing Maizono have to mask a glare at a group of men who came up to ask her for an autograph, as well. A glare of disgust and contempt. Mukuro could see in her that she measured how much attention others gave her as how much control she had over them, and was overwhelmed with how much like her sister this girl had managed to be. But…wasn’t wanting to despair. She wanted to hope. She was an engima.
Kirigiri seeing through that with ease of course.
I like to think that Mukuro had a crush on Maizono and Naegi when she came to Hope’s Peak, was always looking at them walking through the halls together, was so surprised that they weren’t a thing apparently, surprised at how overprotective she was of Naegi, surprised at how often she ended up seeing Maizono’s manipulations, and one day just almost. Unthinkingly pulling a gun out on a paparazzi who had their sights set on Maizono. What a fake despair, she’d say, she hated despair caused by the media, it was all rumors and blitz for a moment, and then just gone. It never lasted. That was how she tried to excuse it, of course. She and Kirigiri accidentally running into each other in the rafters one day of one of Maizono’s concerts, keeping an eye out for any bullshit, raising eyebrows at one another, going back to what they were doing.
Mukuro being okay with a strange relationship with Maizono, even though Kirigiri seemed to object, she couldn’t really get that angry because it was agreed on both sides. Being like a strange moirail for Mukuro, her worry about her with Maizono blinding her to seeing the fact that Mukuro was just another part of the despair in the world. Giving her gloves, having an extra ration pack on handy that she knew as the only thing Mukuro would eat, helping her talk to Naegi. Kirigiri and Mukuro never speaking much, but communicating through gestures of equally gloved hands(that Kirigiri gave to her when she noted the tattoo), quick glances, a small package in their respective desks after lunch. Kirigiri acting as a strange sort of pale to her, and a strange sort of love with Maizono, and Mukuro even more stuck between them and knowing how badly she was going to betray them, but drinking in this chance in spite of herself.
And a lot more. PFff I cant really say enough, I have some bullshit bunches of writings in my maizono doc that I keep on my desktop , but I dont know when I’ll finish that if ever so that. Sucks. But yeah. I love. These three girls…………..
… /quietly reblogs this because wow yes I need to start shipping this and think about it and stuff
I’ve commisioned a lot of art on tumblr and I refuse to pay what people are asking for it. It’s ridiculous…Like you want me to pay $7 for this fullbody piece of art that looks fantastic? That’s some bullshit…Like seriously how can you ask for that much money it’s completely ridiculous…
So here, have $50
The fact that people actually say that initial part trying to make it out like the artist is the one scamming people makes me want to murder babies. Ya’ll undervalue yourselves because of a bunch of self-entitled fuckstains that have no comprehension of how much work goes into a sketch
And finally, we’re done with that opening scene. The game announces its first chapter (“World of Discord”, in case we missed the memo about everything going to hell) and then drops us in the shoes of our traumatized buddy from The Ruins Formerly Known as Palmacosta. (Poor town can’t catch a break.) He wakes to the sound of an animal’s howl and, conveniently, informs his room that it sounds somehow ~familiar~. Looks like we’re already on our way to a first quest.
Downstairs we meet his Aunt Flora, who comments that he’s slept in late, which manages to prompt him to shrink on the spot and stammer an apology. Apparently the correct response to your recently-orphaned nephew over-apologizing is to demean him and compare him unfavorably to his parents (he apologizes again in response). Well, this is off to a pleasant start.
Anyway, now that we’re in control, we can check our menus and the like. If we didn’t catch onto where Emil’s character is going just now, his default title of ‘Timid Boy’ confirms it. Ouch; I know I wouldn’t want that listed as my defining trait, pre-character development or no. He’s also shown in some weird kind of JRPG hero outfit, because his current clothes are either not flashy enough or make him look too much like Mithos. I guess we’d better enjoy them now.
Dazed kid comes to where the man and woman from before are. Nnnnope, they’re not looking so good, but she conveniently has time for a few last words if her son is stupid enough to come back after escaping. Leave me, get away, go to your aunt… the usual, and then she promptly dies. Blondie reacts with the same kind of heartfelt, relatable human emotion he’s been showing up ‘til now — and by that I mean that he reaches stiffly in her direction and then says, “Mom…” in almost a total monotone.
It’s okay; he tries again. There we go. That’s much better as far as anguished cries of grief go.
I’ve still got a ways to go with just my intro screencaps, so I’m going to try and get these done as fast as possible. So, fade out on Lloyd killing a defenseless family (presumably he goes and kicks a puppy while we watch this next scene) and in on some generic soldier-types who are apparently trying to win the title of Most Blatantly Evil Uniform. They’re chasing a cute girl with a jewel that radiates plot importance, because that’s just what you do in these kinds of games. Then, uh, something happens? That results in everyone passing out and heroine acquiring a glowing tattoo? And some blond dork is looking at all these fallen soldiers like he’s the one who just woke up? Heroine is at least as confused as I am, but she doesn’t get answers because her vacant-eyed savior apparently has somewhere to be. ‘Kay, then. I bet we’ll never learn what happened here.
