“What’s the weakest chess piece?”
The words danced through Yuuko’s mind, a silent companion in the moonlight.
“Why do you ask?”
“I was just wondering what you think the weakest chess piece is?”
Even now Yuuko could picture his smile, so vividly that it seemed like, if she closed her eyes, she might imagine that he was right in front of her and that she had merely blinked. The curve of his jaw, mischievous and playful, so different from the kind serenity he often showed others. A hint of the man within the image of sage sorcerer.
“Well, normally I would say it was the pawn, but then you wouldn’t be asking me that question would you?”
“Well, if that’s what you believe I wouldn’t fault you.”
“However a skilled chess player could take down a king with merely pawns if he wished to.”
“Ah yes, and which skilled chess player might that be? Should I assume they’re one of your illustrious descendants?”
Clow’s laugh echoed through the night. He had lifted the glass of sake Yuuko had given to him as a gift to his lips. They were very familiar to Yuuko, indeed, it seemed sometimes that she had learned them as well as she had learned her craft. Yet they still hid their secrets, just as she hid her own. Yuuko didn’t believe in letting her lover knowing her soul, just as Clow enjoyed the mists he had cloaked himself in. Sometimes Yuuko wondered who knew more about the other. If she had to guess it was her. Clow longed for intimacy sometimes, an intimacy that touched the inner walls of the heart. Then again, she did too.
“It was only a hypothetical. An inquiry of the mind.”
“Well then, will you tell me what your inquiry found?” From the twinkle in his eye she already knew his answer.
“Wouldn’t you rather discover the answer on your own?”
It was a pity that Clow was dead by the time she had found out, a pity that she was too, for all intents and purposes. A pity she could not answer his silly little quandary.
The moon shown clear and true in the sky. Tomorrow it would be full. Tomorrow she would send Watanuki out with a gift for an old friend. She would once again be alone to view the full moon by herself. It was better that way.
“What is the weakest chess piece?” She murmured to herself. “You old bastard, you knew this would happen, wouldn’t you?” A pained smile crossed her lips, one she made no effort to hide in the solitary darkness.
“What is the chess piece that must sit and watch as the game unfolds, sit in agony as pawns fall to the machinations of others, as rooks and knights and queens are traded away? As the king comes crashing down? Who can only hope they move correctly, that their struggle is not in vain?”
Yuuko let her gaze float down to the sake in her hand. It really was very good. That it was not as good as it once had been was not its fault.
“Comparing me to the chess player is in very poor taste you know.” She scolded the sake. “For not even I have the control of one sitting on the board.”
Somewhere in another world a play had been made. Yuuko could only hope that hers was not a weak one.
- Another xxxHolic drabble of mine
plz yasuho/joshu for the thingie,,, i feel like people forget how truly bad it is
NO ITS SO BAD LIKE?
I will never not be baffled that joshu stans exist especially since everyone in jojolion is so good like…that’s the guy you pick???
AND youre gonna pair him with the woman who hates his ass because he literally harasses her the entire time??? Like josuke stole his phone and had to be like heyyy yasuho bestie its me not that asshole <3 its so explicit she hates him thats their only relationship. Like how does that even work when youre shipping them like if you ignore that you have nothing??? Every interaction is antagonistic you get rid of that and make it a generic joshu (misunderstood sad soft boy obviously) gets the girl (whos not even yasuho lets be honest they dont care they just make her girl tm) why not just.. ship something else that wouldnt be toxic as fuck or out of character like
Anyways yasuho joshu shippers and joshu stans get taste and stan yasugap <3
WIP Pesci team.. needs more fish :)
whatever it’s my au i get to rant about it. anyways, some context behind choices: i think magikarp is fairly obvious. it’s a unassuming fish that eventually becomes a dangerous force of nature. eelektrik is pretty self indulgent, but something about it makes me think pesci would find it sweet or cute idk man. basculin is partially a nod to how i’m thinking of using unova for a setting, but it’s also because of basculegion’s ghost typing. that’s the best type for prosciutto in my mind, and you know, metaphor for canonical events. whiscash is because they sense vibrations and because catfish can frick you up
Chris please rant about all of our horrible little rarepairs pls and ty 🥺
GOD okay so thats like seccotaro, diavolo x cioccolata, and god…seisokashu????
Okay well seccotaro isnt awful its the best but <3 idk like how can you hate it theyre perfect for each other 🥺🥺🥺
Diavolo x cioccolata is the worst because you keep making my husband cheat on me and he brings home so many thongs we dont have room for all of them its destroying our relationship
Seisokashu is just freak4freak4freak it pains me to remember it exists everytime and i hope it pains everyone who subscribes to me on ao3 when they expect actual updates and i hit them with the worst ot3 alive instead of the shit they want <3<3<3 wait thats a good thing j hate this shit being it makes me remember all of these bastards
Griffin/murdering all his friends
Better than griffith and guts i guess fzusvsisjzkddj or god forbid people trying to pull that omg lets solve a love triangle with a polycule shit with berserk
Anyways besties lets all kill griffith together <3<3<3
What is the worst PMMM ship I want to make your blog a warsite (I’m sorry)
Homura and mado-
I cant even do that as a joke im sorrycshhsjsksksk
I guess probably anyone with mami? Like idk shes a very lonely character but she really just needs besties like idk if anyones shipping her but like idk leave her alone dyshusisks
Also like sayaka and violin boy idk if people are invested in that but like COME ON he sucks and sayaka was a lesbian having a rough time figuring it out sorry </3
I think ppl like to group dio jjba ryo devilman and Griffith berserk together because theyre all blonde little bastard dudes but dont do that ryo and dio are fun little bastard dudes griffith is just awful
Fuck clow reed all he does is cause problems i could do that but gayer yuuko please call me back
Doumeki/Watanuki/Himawari >>>>>> Watanuki/Himawari
LITERALLY idc they should be poly and each time I read it I get more convinced
Hmm Chris how about.... Chi and hideki 🥰🥰🥰🥰 and uhhh sure I wanna see u try and hate douwata. Also seccolata 🥰
Chi and Hideki is bad because….because…umm 🥺 because chi is too sweet and hideki cares too much and uh the ring shit was too cute i cried and i hate that </3 i cant even pretend im so sorry theyre my little besties
Douwata sucks because watanuki is so stupid and enemies to lovers is so overplayed 🙄 they need himawari there to balance them out otherwise they have no chemistry like have you looked at their interactions??? Doumeki is canceled for seeing watanuki as nothing but his personal chef and watanuki is so rude /s
Okay like why like…theyre like “canon” but it sucks so much cioccolata is there JUST to be a hatesink theres nothing redeeming about him thats kind of the point everyone hates his ass. I dont know how you could look at that and his questionable ass relationship with secco and not just go 😰 instead of being like omg my widdle sinnamon rolls. Like i didnt really care about seccolata before like i hated it yeah but it was just kind of there….
…but now im a secco stan and a seccotaro stan my eyes have been opened i hate seccolata with a burning passion everyone in part 5 are getting together with secco and jotaro to beat his ass
Since we were talking about CLAMP how would you rate the JJBA pairing that brought us “did you lay this egg?!”
BERN I AM FUCKING SOBBINGGGGG thats jotakak! i feel a lot of that post doesnt make sense without context but i hate it so so so much because a. the fandom sucks and b. they fit the top bottom stereotypes perfectly and also c. a lot of the jjba freak artists draw jotakak so its like a red flag for me
I… wh-what goes on in some parts of the JJBA fandom
(I gotta deal with Yashahime in my life in return for good Sango content so I understand your suffering but also… woof)
Jjba fandom is so so bad like your point about the relationship between yuuko and watanuki being you know really deep and complicated but people cant handle that without making it romantic? Yeah jojo fandom has that problem 20 times over
LIKE OKAY GSGSJSJA jojos not character focused youre not getting character driven stories or reaching anything near as complex and amazing and well realized as anything in xxxholic BUT jojo fandom cant handle any kind of non romantic relationship being important which is why you get a bunch of gross ships
I mean i guess thats a problem kind of all over unfortunately but theres so much gross shit thats popular i hate it
Sorry to ask for this but d*opucci and whatever Hermes x jotaro is
Okay lets get diopucci out of the way first christ
Honestly what even is there to say like? Its so gross? Pucci was 15 when he met dio how the fuck do you not get to that part and go ljke oh..this is gross. Like diopucci is especially because like its so prevalent? Like how many times have you heard casual dios boyfriend jokes or gay priest and gay vampire shit from reddit bros to the point where people think its canon??? And its not??? At all?? Theyre just friends and maybe not even that depending on if you think dio can form an actual genuine connection LIKE
Plus everyone diopucci shipper makes pucci nothing but dios little sidekick when hes not like that AT ALL dios a mentor figure for him puccis doing HIS OWN THING just with what dio left behind rly the only thing hes doing for dio is trying to get jolyne and jotaro out of the way and he didnt even rly aim to do that for awhile like he was fine letting jolyne just rot.
And if youre in it so dios canonically bi like go make him bi and not gross with a better ship vanilla ice and hol horse are right there and theyre way more fun and stupid <3 like idk if you ship diopucci die <3
As a lesbian hermes enjoyer my problem is not anyone whos got like bi Hermes headcanons like we are besties in appreciating hermes and if you want to ship her with a man go ahead…but not fucking jotaro thats JOTARO??? The both gay and ace king who cant do anything right to save his life????? With hermes???????? When jolyne and ff are RIGHT THERE??? hell even hermes and just anasui makes more sense LIKE????? that’s her besties DAD??? the age gap the implications the UGH the EVERYTHING thats not hermes shes not going to do that wtf
RisoDop and DiaDop :)
Okay like why cant people be normal to doppio like hes just a little guy and people rly uwuify him for both of these like shut the fuck up especially since like? Its a little unclear whether or not doppio is a minor? Like especially in the english dub and these ships just kind of like make it worse?? Because they uwuify doppio so much like hes a violent weird little asshole too its not doppio is all sugar and sparkles and has never been angry in his life because thats diavolos job jesus
Also with risadop specifically what the fuck you cant enemy to lovers everything risotto literally hates doppio so much??? Hes half the reason his entire team and friends are dead and why risottos life sucks??? Thats unforgivable and like did you miss the part where risotto holds grudges for years???
Diadop is like i mean…i guess you acknowledge theyre different people in the worst way possible???? Like i dont get it why are people like this leave my bestie and my worstie alone
Jotakak or Jolymes..
Jotakak is only allowed to exist because it lets my bestie jouta exist. Otherwise i just dont get the popularity like especially as sdc goes on they dont fucking TALK TO EACH OTHER?? like sdc suffers from like everyone not talking to each other but you know. Basically its fine i just dont get why its the number 1 you know?
Jolymes is too gay wtf youre telling me everyone in stone ocean is gay and trans??? Unrealistic
