HENRY CAVILL as Clark Kent in ‘Man of Steel’ (2013)
What if Jacob was a goose
Peace would not be an option.
“Louis was used to getting up for his morning walk at 10. Schedule changed and morning walk time is now 6am. He was not emotionally prepared for this.”
I have never seen a dog more clearly communicate “are you fucking kidding me?” before.
The little uncomfortable lick really does it, lmao
thetis just sticks him in one of these bad boys
What if she put him in a sack and dunked him in? The water would saturate the sack and soak him and so long as she pulled him out quick, he wouldn’t drown. Then they’d have a sack that’s invulnerable too and can be used as the most unexpected shield ever.
But there would still be two small parts of him that are vulnerable because they were covered by her fingertips at the time, stopping the water from touching them. Which means those fingertips are also vulnerable on her hand
Achilles *putting those little round band-aids on two parts of his ankle before battle*
Thetis *knitting fingertip oven mitts for her thumb and forefinger*
The myth of Achilles, but instead of holding him by the heel, Thetis sumberges him fully so that Achilles is completely invulnerable and Thetis has one invulnerable hand.
She only needs one oven mitt when taking cookies out of the oven.
This is a Greek comedy I could get behind
Imagine Achilles storming Troy with one (1) invulnerable sack for a shield
and swirls him around like a batch of chicken nuggets until he’s invulnerable all over.
I wonder if Ozai heard that the Avatar was back and was just like, Shit! Now there’s potential for my son to complete that impossible task I assigned him
Zuko literally is that idiot in a fairy tale who doesn’t realize the task he’s been handed is supposed to be impossible, so he just goes out and fucking does it.
Saving this for later
Okay, I’m back.
I love this, but I have to add… Zuko is not that idiot in a fairytale who doesn’t realise capturing the Avatar is supposed to be impossible.
The second Ozai gives the order and the banishment is official, everyone knows. Nobody has seen the Avatar in a hundred years. Either he’s dead, or he’s an old master that a fourteen year old punk could never hope to beat.
Iroh knows. That’s why he keeps trying to distract Zuko with his little diversions. The crew knows. And they are wondering who exactly they pissed off to get this assignment?
And Zuko knows. Of course he knows. How could he not? But he doesn’t let himself believe it. He lies to himself. Every day. He convinces himself that the Avatar is out there and that one day, if Zuko just tries hard enough, he’ll find him. And he’ll bring him to his father.
Because if it really is impossible? Then that means that Zuko’s father never loved him. Then that means that Zuko can never go home. Then that means that maybe Azula was right and Ozai really was going to kill him the night that his grandfather died and his mother disappeared.
And it is so much easier to believe in the impossible than it is to believe that your father is a monster.
Not only is this perfect, but it’s almost explicitly validated by the canon. Zuko’s redemption arc has a lot to do with him recognizing that his father was a monster who never had any honor in the first place, while Zuko himself is blessed with an abundance of it.
