    As The Saying Went

    As the saying went, April showers brought May flowers.

    But Shouta found himself missing the rain, the gentle pitter patter of the drops on the windows of the school and against the roof of his house. He missed the rhythm of it, missed walking to school sharing a huge umbrella with two others. He never thought he would, especially after months of nonstop rain, but he did.

    So when the first rain of May darkened the bright blue sky, grey rain clouds drifting above and breaking, pouring rain drops down below, Shouta found himself pressed up against the front doors of UA, staring out into the rainy world outside. His hands pressed on the glass doors, leaving little fingerprints in his wake, his breath fogging up the glass as he stared, entranced by the rain and the way the drops dripped off the newly-bloomed May flowers. 

    “If you want, we can go play out in the rain.”

    The voice came from behind Shouta and he jumped a little at hearing it, his heart lurching and then calming the moment he turned around, only to see Oboro smiling back at him, blue eyes bright and sparkling in the grey, rainy light from outside. 

    “We’re too old for that,” Shouta said simply with a shake of his head, black hair falling all over his face as he stared up at his tall friend, his attention turned from the rain to Oboro in just a matter of a few seconds. “Besides, I’ve never…”

    Oboro’s mouth dropped open, and he finished exactly what Shouta had been about to say, the shock evident in his voice, “You’ve never played outside in the rain? Oh, Shouta.”

    Shouta’s gaze dropped to his feet. He glanced again outside, watching as the rain fell down, making streaks on the glass of the windows and doors. He tried to shrug, letting out a sigh, “It just didn’t seem… all that logical to go outside just to get wet.”

    “Your logic doesn’t take into account fun, Shou-chan,” Oboro reminded him, for what felt like the hundredth time. Shouta’s eyes snapped back up to his, and Oboro grinned down at him.

    In a flash, Oboro’s hand reached out and grabbed Shouta’s wrist, and before he could do anything about it, he was dragging Shouta out the door.

    “Wait, I— my uniform’s going to get all wet!” Shouta protested, but he didn’t try pulling away from Oboro. Oboro didn’t hang onto him tightly, just hard enough to pull him, and Shouta could easily yank his hand from his grasp. But he didn’t. 

    He let Oboro pull him and he let him pull him outside, beyond the overhang of the awning of the school and then further, until the rain was pouring down on them, rushing over Shouta and making his clothes stick to his skin.

    Shouta’s dark eyes went wide and he met Oboro’s bright blue gaze. Oboro’s smile stretched wide and full, and he grinned from ear to ear at Shouta, a loud laugh erupting from him as his fingers squeezed around Shouta’s thin wrist, water raining down on them from the sky and drenching them to the core. 

    And then, Shouta did something he never thought possible—he tilted his head up towards the sky, warmth filling him as Oboro held onto him, and he laughed.

    what TLJ probably meant: poor Kylo Ren look he had a reason to come into the Dark Side his own uncle tried to kill him :’((( it’s also all Luke’s fault, blame him, he gave up on Ben so easy!!

    what I, an intellectual, learned form TLJ: if Luke “there is still good in you dad Vader” Skywalker takes one look at Ben Solo’s mind and thinks this one is irredeemable then well, shit, I absolutely believe him

    thefingerfuckingfemalefury

    Kylo: luke tried to kill me when I was just a child!

    What Rey Should have Said: And if he had then you wouldn’t have DESTROYED MULTIPLE PLANETS

    Kylo: …..

    Rey: YOU SLAUGHTERED BILLIONS

    Kylo: …….

    Rey: YOU MURDERED CHILDREN WITH A LASER SWORD

    Kylo: okay but Luke…tried to kill me…

    Rey: Because he saw your future where you murdered children and blew up planets

    Kylo: Okay but if I WAS DEAD that would be BAD for me personally

    Rey: But good for the billions of innocent people who you brutally murdered

    Kylo: But…bad…for me…

    So

    TRAGIC

    Rey: I don’t think you understand how this “Sad Backstory” thing works

    hyena-princess

    Not just that, but literally IMMEDIATELY after almost getting killed by Luke he goes and kills all of the other jedi-in-training who won’t follow him. His first action after almost being killed, because Luke thought he was going to be evil, was murdering people.

    avada-matata

    I still can’t find the logical connection here like why would that be your second step

    thefingerfuckingfemalefury

    Kylo Ren: Luke planned to kill me because he unfairly judged me as being a monster!

    He was so convinced I was evil he was going to kill me!

    SO I MURDERED A TON OF CHILDREN

    And then joined a bunch of space fascists

    And helped them blow up half a dozen planets

    Rey: Well

    you sure proved him wrong

    bartfargo

    Kylo Ren: If Han Solo were here, he would tell you how wrong you are

    Rey: Well, isn’t that just piss-poor planning on your part?

    thefingerfuckingfemalefury

    All I can now think of is that bit from Simpsons

    “I can’t help being the way I am!

    When I was younger my parents were brutally murdered right before my eyes

    BY ME”

    The Terror: Infamy - 2x10 - “Did something happen tonight? In the war?”

    peppapigvevo

    the dawning realization of this gif set is so chilling

    Another thing they did was in the ending credits, they put the cast and crew alongside pics of their ancestors during the war, some who served, some who were interred in American camps, some who were both. So for example, the lead actor, Derek Mio:

    Marcus Toji, who played an interpreter in the show:

    The director, Lily Mariye:

    There were others too, but the actors in the scene giffed above? George Takei and Sab Shimono? They were in camps themselves.

    I think it'd be fun if one of these days when the evil overlord type is like "I Need A Queen. To Rule With" one of the little henchmen is just like "um 😳 if I may, sir, I would like to volunteer 👉👈" and overlord is just like. Okay sure you're cute aha

    spacefroggity

    This is gay of course in case it wasn't clear. I do support henchwomen in their career choices but we're doing gay villains here

    spacefroggity

    Or they could both be girls who knows. This trope is usually done with the Evil Man who proceeds to kidnap someone about it but we could have an overlady why not. Girlboss

    azzandra

    Evil Overlady reading outdated Evil Overlord Instruction Manual from the Sexist Old Days: hmm, says here I need to acquire an Evil Queen to assist me in my Rule of Terror and General Administrative Duties. I must follow what the Manual says

    Henchwoman who has been wearing increasingly risqué bustiers every passing day of her employment: umm. ma’am. 😳 I would like to apply for that position  👉👈

    Evil Overlady: Excellent! This is why I hired you, because you are a Real Go-Getter

    imma say it. “kung fu panda” did more for body positivity and saying that  you can be fat and still be healthy and liked than ANYTHING any beauty companies trying to get your money.

    boppinrockin

    kfp also respects women more than any beauty company too.

    also it had a positive relationship between an adopted child and his stepfather even after he found out he was adopted

    the10ne1yweird0

    Hey yknow how Viper was born without fangs, but instead of being rendered helpless as her family thought she’d be, she instead used her other skills to become the best warrior in her clan?

    And how Tigress had severe, destructive anger issues when she was younger, but instead of being painted as a “problem child” she was instead taught her how to channel her emotions into something constructive?

    And how Crane trained extra hard to impress a girl, and was by all rights the hero of his own story, but he still didn’t get her in the end? And how the girl isn’t shamed for it?

    It’s almost as if you get more mileage out of treating your characters (and the people they resemble) with compassion than you do just shamelessly stamping them with your own misconceptions and hang ups.

    I’m honestly kind of shocked how well-written this cartoon about Jack Black as a panda ended up being, but kudos to KFP!

    so I came to a realization while reading some stuff about ozai. bitchlord had the shortest reign of any firelord ever, but that isn’t the funniest thing yet. it was listed that the most notable victories of his reign was the surrender of omashu and the fall of ba sing se.

    both of those were led by azula, not ozai. in short, his fourteen year old mentally unstable daughter did more in ozai’s seven year term than ozai ever did.

    do what you want with this information. loserlord, indeed.

    He didn’t even get the throne on his own, Ursa masterminded the entire coup for him
