i am not saying bo burnham's inside was bad. i am only saying that the only person who really needed to see it was bo's therapist
Ah, the Yuheng of the Qixing. Before he’d even set foot in Liyue, he’d heard a great deal of her before, her outspokenness making her stick out among the Qixing. Admittedly, he’d expected to meet someone much older, though it impressed him no less how bold she’d been when he’d first been formally introduced to her.
That same impression remained when she’d confronted him in the aftermath of it all. Despite her words, he couldn’t help the short chuckle, almost as if laughing over a light-hearted joke, rather than the catastrophe he’d come close to causing. “Aw, do you still hold that against me? I merely did what needed to be done. The price that came with it was unfortunate, but quite necessary. Change cannot come without a few sacrifices.” He hadn’t liked it anymore than she might have, but it didn’t mean he held any regrets for his actions.
“Don’t worry, I have no plans of stirring anymore trouble here. Your Liyue is safe... though if you’re challenging me, it’d be rude of me to turn down a formidable opponent~” The playful smile disappeared, turning cold as his eyes settled on her. Was that what she was seeking from him?
Change cannot come without a few sacrifices. Does he dare to mock her after ruining the diplomatic ties with Liyue after almost sending it to its downfall? In favor to keep her appearances as both an aristocrat and the Yuheng of the Liyue Qixing does Keqing click her tongue as an alternative to burst verbally at the Harbinger. Even before a decision for a consensual agreement was made in the committee to abide by Keqing’s suggestion to seize control over Liyue, the Fatui managed to spread rumors that tainted the elite’s reputation with the implications that they have not an ounce of respect for Rex Lapis or the adepti when it was Keqing the one who openly voiced her skepticism towards the illuminated.
Alas, there was hardly a reproach to say when the turn of events and the mutual agreement with the adepti entailed into just that.
❝Liyue denizens need a conclusion to Rex Lapis’ case as well as Osial’s awakening in order to move on.❞ Swiftly does she draw her own sword in an elegant stance that describes her so as many who bore witness of her swordsmanship would put it and lays in wait. ❝The Tianquan may be more generous and I and would rather strike from a different vantage, but unfortunately for you I am not.❞ With those words she swings her sword towards the ginger man, still laying patiently in wait. ❝You as the representative of the Fatui in this event will make you the perfect scapegoat to give my people some peace of mind. Draw your weapon.❞
((I MIGHT get to asks. Unexpected errands are draining me fast, and I still have so much to do. ))

prayer circle for full b-roll footage to be released so all the solhwi and hyebeom crumbs will be seen
It isn’t a day that Wes particularly enjoys considering how strained his relationship is with Roger. Not-so-lovely reminder #1 that he’s canonically a victim of childhood physical and psychological abuse, which paves the way for a lifetime of an imbalanced dynamic of fear and the ongoing seeking of approval... #2 Wes was prepared to endanger his own life as well as commit patricide for the sake of Angel and Fred 🙃
Anyway... Wes used to buy Roger gifts on a yearly basis with varied degrees of success as to whether they were well-received or not (but the right intention was always there from a dutiful son).
However this promptly stopped the year Wes made the transition between Sunnydale to LA - he barely had the financial means for himself, let alone the elevated costs of organising for a gift to be delivered abroad (also the cusp of the late ‘90s and early ‘00s pre-dates the commonplace practice of ordering things online with easy international delivery, especially to a home that’s a little more removed in the countryside)
The lack of gift that year didn’t go down well and while the reason behind one not being sent was sound, it highlighted the fact that Roger cared more for the tradition itself as opposed to the gesture being from his son - while Wes had mentioned money troubles during those months, Roger hadn’t offered to help in any way and Wes daren’t outright ask either ( ‘one ought to stand on one’s own feet’ ).
Going forwards, Wes would call Roger on the day to have a chat however as with any of their phone calls, Wes often felt pressured to have something positive to talk about, needing a topic to illustrate that things were on the way up in his life as it would always fall under scrutiny following his departure from the Watchers Council. Those conversations tended to spiral into belittling comments like any other on any given day of the year.
I love my pretty butt plug
