cait: fine. i'll do it. i mean, rules are rules.
Caitlyn: If I were you, I would just let it go.
Vi: No, I love my grudges. I tend to them like little pets.
@xbrokenxbrainx asked: 🤝 + Caitlyn & Jinx
send in 🤝 + a friendship and i’ll tell you who:
texts the other memes at 3 am: This is absolutely Jinx, and its not just memes, I feel like Jinx would just text Caitlyn even the most random ass thoughts on her attention deficit, hyperactive, fucked up mind. I could also see Jinx doing it just when she’s lonely/struggling to sleep. That said... Caitlyn would also text Jinx things she thinks is genuinely, which is almost exclusively really cheesy jokes. Also Caitlyn is more likely to text Jinx period at 3 PM. I know that’s not the question but, yes, it’s just true.
tries to convince the other to do an idea that definitely sounds questionable: Oh, Jinx, abso-fucking-lutely. NEXT. Okay, okay, for realsies, though: It’s still Jinx, BUT, uh, yeah no, okay, it’s Jinx. Caitlyn will drop hints but she will absolutely make Jinx be the one to actually suggest it because, well, a police enforcer can’t exactly tell a wanted criminal to take her in the middle of a theatre now, can she?
is the designated driver and who always gets wasted: Define ‘designated’? Because, I mean, Jinx is definitely the one who gets wasted, no doubt, but I also legitimately think that Cait has definitely broken a few rules on blood-alcoholic limits, especially down in Zaun, when the booze doesn’t even have units printed on the bottle. Or, uhh... Labels at all, really.
always has to host the impromptu sleepover: Oh Caitlyn. Absolutely Caitlyn. The only impromptu sleepovers happening on Jinx’s fanblade would involve an unconscious, bleeding, drunk, or dying Caitlyn and Jinx taking care of her. And that doesn’t count as a sleepover. Not to say Cait wouldn’t or hasn’t slept over at Jinx’s fanblade, but if she has it’s most certainly been pre-planned. Meanwhile Jinx has made it a long time tradition for her to just hop on through Caitlyn’s sheriff’s office and bedroom window without a single heads up that she’s on her way, and two things always seem to happen: One, they fuck or make out. & Two, Jinx ends up staying over. Sometimes for multiple days. Cait’s not complaining, though.
who’s netflix account gets mooched off of: Caitlyn. I don’t think Jinx even has a netflix account. I think Jinx secretly has Sevika’s account deets and uses it from time to time whenever she steels a good phone or laptop or whenever she’s at the Last Drop or Silco’s secret lair beneath Zaun. But she’s never, ever, actually owned her own netflix account. Of course, Caitlyn could easily just buy Jinx one if it really bothered her, but there was a surprisingly nice ring to term: NETLIX & CHILL.
brings all the snacks and who supplies the movie: Gonna need a definition again. Do the snacks and movies have to be paid for? If so then Caitlyn, unless Jinx is being EXCEPTIONALLY gay and romantic and sweet. I do think Jinx would try and bring snacks or try and supply movies but I also think she’d just get frustrated trying to pick out movies or just settle for one that was really funny, sexual or bloody, cuz that shit is easier to think about than picking a movie and actually worrying about whether Caitlyn will actually like it on a fundamentally deep level. If Cait calls Knock Knock II: Knock Up & Knocked Over an awful gore porn B list horror movie. Well. Duh. That’s the point. If Cait calls Elysium a bad movie. OUCH. (Don’t worry, she won’t; She LOVES Elysium.) Also Caitlyn is guilty of sometimes leaving a few washers or cogs or gears lying around for Jinx to find just to suggest that Jinx ‘treat her’ to a movie night. & It’s doubly cute when it’s Jinx’s idea.
is usually the first one to say sorry after a fight: Ooooh... OUCH. I actually. Hmm. I think... Damn this is a rather multi-layered one, to be honest. If Caitlyn knows that she was in fact, in the wrong, I think it’s only natural for her to reach out pretty immediately after calming down to apologize and make shit right. And, obviously, Jinx is actually never going to have Caitlyn reach out first if Jinx is the one in the wrong. Where things get messy is if both Cait and Jinx are equally responsible or in general they just had a falling out. I genuinely think Caitlyn would struggle and even be scared to reach ouch and would essentially be waiting and need Jinx to reach out to her and apologize first. If the fight is bad enough, Cait would definitely show care & concern, check on Jinx, but honestly, I just really think Cait would need to see some sort of sign from Jinx first; A repressed desire to make something right. Guilt. An actual sincere apology. A cute little aversive & denial-ridden token of good will. It’s just in Caitlyn’s nature to be prideful, stubborn, justicial, & honestly she kind of does hold Jinx to a higher standard of expectation due entirely to wanting to see Jinx continue to grow as a human.
is the ‘ mom friend ‘: Caitlyn. Caitlyn is everyone’s mom friend all of the time. It’s why her life fucking sucks. But it’s really fun sometimes to be Jinx’s mom friend, and it’s also hella rewarding and prideful to see the little ways Jinx actually listens-- To see how Caitlyn’s momming can actually lead to Jinx bettering her life, mental health & self-esteem. She’s Jinx’s moral compass and will constantly leash and discipline Jinx, trying to control her, sometimes to the other girl’s destriment, but that’s just Caitlyn’s own protective instincts coming into play. I do think, ironically, there are a few situations where this role would switch, and that’s if Jinx ever actually saw Caitlyn slipping up and sliding off the deep end. Jinx would NOT allow Caitlyn to spiral down the same abyss Jinx found herself consumed by at the age of 12.
calls the other at 12 am to wish the other a happy birthday without fail: Caitlyn. Caitlyn. Caitlyn. Caitlyn. Caitlyn has a diary, a calendar, phone reminders, post-its, even entire case files on every single last person in her life. And MULTIPLE on Jinx. Suffice to say, as soon as she learned Jinx’s birthday, she never, ever, forgot it. And once they started getting intimate, she’d always given Jinx the same (and of course often times more) attention and treatment as everyone else in her life. It’s to a point now where it’s so ingrained in Caitlyn’s routine that it would literally break her if Jinx spend even a single birthday estranged from Caitlyn in any way, and that phone call would be the inevitably open door back into each other’s lives. That said, Jinx definitely calls Caitlyn, too, or just, y’know, shows up at wherever the Caitlyn might be -- EVEN A CRIME SCENE, cuz yes, Cait definitely works through her own birthday. As soon as Jinx comes down from whatever high might be distracting her at the time. Also, I think if Cait ever once looked hurt, Jinx would obsess just as much as Cait does and make sure she does it the next year. It’s also entirely possible that Jinx has a plan she just made up for any given one of Cait’s birthday in which case she wouldn’t fail. Buttt, this question said without fail, and I do think it’s very possible for Jinx -- Who probably doesn’t even remember her own birthday and actually has to put effort and emotional stakes on the line every time Cait tries to push birthday stuff onto her -- Would potentially forget Cait’s birth if only for a second at 12am. & Honestly the idea of Jinx calling Cait at like 4am on her birthday being like. “Shit I forgot, happy birthday!” And Cait just laughing and giggling and giving Jinx a very sincere “Thank you” is some of the mushiest shit that I’ve ever conceived. And I love it.
is the better wingman to the other: Lmao. Neither. From a social standpoint, I think Jinx is more likely to better integrate Caitlyn into her culture and life than Cait would ever be able to do the other way around, simply because of the high standing socialite nature of high caste Piltover. Plus Caitlyn isn’t exactly great at socializing anyway. Jinx, while also not great at it, has a lot of history of energy, masks and just saying ‘fuck it’ and trying it anyway. But in an actual setting of romance + sex + hook ups, they’d both just be eternally cockblocking each other because they’re actually gay for each. Plus in that actual setting of romance + sex + hook ups, Jinx has the whole VI FACTOR to factor into any and all equations of a Jinx and Cait friendship. And she’d never let that happen even if she didn’t wanna bone Cait.
‘ the strong must protect the sweet ‘ , who’s the ‘ strong ‘ and who’s the ‘ sweet ‘: Oooooooooooooooh. Okay. This one. DEFINITELY depends on the day. Jinx is the immorally strong. The street wise. The broken. And Jinx would absolutely need to be the one to protect Caitlyn from the dangers of life itself because Cait is a surprisingly sweet, honest, naive & hopeful soul. Meanwhile Caitlyn is the emotionally, maturely strong, and she would absolutely be the one protecting Jinx who has a secretly sweet soft inner center that Jinx herself isn’t even capable of nurture on her own. In either case it’s not about physical protection per se because one is a sharpshooting sheriff who is literally the best shot in the entire world and the other is, well, JINX. But it’s all about Jinx sheltering Caitlyn from the kind of traumas that would break through that strong, stalwart, justice-oriented, hope-filled beliefs of a better tomorrow. (Y’know like Jinx kidnapping her, putting a gun to her head and begging her sister to blow her brains out before nuking an entire city block with her mom and best friend inside. But that was all in the past.) And for Caitlyn it’s all about protecting that last flickering ember of Jinx’s shattering humanity, doing all she can to help Jinx hold on to that last speck of hope that someone, anyone, can still love her, and that she has anything left to offer the world beyond mass destruction. Which again: There’s those mom roles.
pulls the other up for karaoke to sing a duet together: JINX. Holy fuck it would so be Jinx. And it would be hilarious. Caitlyn would have to be very drunk to ever willingly go up on karaoke because social reputation and being a little too serious, formal and concerned with her image for that. But if anyone could get a sober Cait on stage it would be Jinx, and it would be the cutest Glee shit ever as Jinx’s energy just infects Cait as she forces the poor bean to (try to) sign. Well, okay, there was ONE scenario where Cait would get up on karaoke, and that’s SPECIFICALLY to be a teasing shit lord toward Jinx, but that’s still entirely Jinx’s fault.
Arcane’s big on parallels and I want to see a rehash of the dinner party scene again. Or at least, something to mirror it. Maybe Jinx’s Family Reunion from Hell Part 2 Electric Bungaloo. Or maybe even a flashback whether it be it one from back when Vander and the boys were still alive or heck even one Jinx had with Silco (and maybe a poor Sevika + some goons forced against their will). Heck, to up the angst, maybe a post act 1 Powder all alone perhaps Silco had to do something with the Chem-barons and couldn’t be there, emotional wounds from the events of ep3 still very raw, maybe setting up her own tea party like the one in ep9 with every person she cares about having a spot (Silco and Vi both represented by things Powder associated with each) and trying to calm herself down from having a very bad day (maybe stemming from how Silco’s not there with her?).
Or perhaps we get a parallel scene with the topsiders side of the story idk.
no i’m still not over them thank u for asking
Silco agrees to Jayce’s deal to give up Jinx for the Nation of Zaun.
But oh no, she seems to have gone missing and is probably dead now. Oh well, we can’t do anything about that, let’s quickly move on with independence and forget all about that part of the treaty.
Also, completely out of nowhere and totally not related at all, Vander’s youngest Powder is back from the dead. Isn’t that such good news for Caitlyn’s new girlfriend, Vi?
Just focus on how wonderful it is for Caitlyn to have a sister-in-law, who absolutely does not want to murder her.
What?!? Of course, that isn’t Jinx. Don’t be ridiculous, that’s Powder, a completely different person.
I can understand your confusion. But Jinx had blue eyes, but clearly as you can see Powder has pink eyes, which she's always had. That’s not a new thing for her at all.
Also, blue-haired girls who happen to be sharpshooters and explosive enthusiasts are not exactly rare in Zaun. Completely common in fact. The norm really.
Then you just have Silco being in complete pain, with absolute disgust in his voice, having to say -
That isn’t my daughter. I have no love for her. That’s my sworn enemy Vander’s child, that’s his baby girl.
She’s not my precious little chaos demon and the only thing that gives this bleak existence we know as life any kind of light or joy for me. Nope. She means nothing to me.
Ignore Silco crying, he just hates Vander’s youngest so much it brings him to tears.
Can't believe I left my studying to make this.
@xbrokenxbrainx asked: 3-Way Play: Caitlyn + Vi (gross)
“You’ve GOT to be kidding me?” Brow raised, face setting, a mix of DISAPPOINTMENT & FURY flashing across soft but stern features. “You’re really asking for shit to go to Hell asking that, you know?” In fact, no, CAIT was mad that this girl dared to even SUGGEST that; Who the fuck knew what JINX would do then. “No. No. I don’t want a threesome with Vi and Jinx. I don’t want a threesome with Jinx and anyone. And I don’t want ANYTHING to do with Vi.” Okay, so not ANYTHING. She and Vi were friends and partners in the Piltover Enforcers. They’d been trauma bonded for life. And both owed each other that much. But... But Caitlyn had flipped a switch in that shower before Jinx kidnapped her. When Vi had walked away that night. OIL & WATER: Wasn’t meant to be. And she was RIGHT. They WEREN’T meant to be. But then why the Hell were SHE & JINX working out right now? Because what they had was REAL. Real trust. Real loyalty. Real communication. Caitlyn’s feelings had changed. And now that ship had sailed. And that wasn’t even BEGINNING to consider the emotional and psychological pain it would cause the aforementioned gun slinging pyromaniac. “Don’t ever let her hear you say that. That’s one murder case I will NOT be investigating.” Cait LOVED Jinx. And though neither had ever spoken the words, Caitlyn believed with all her heart that Jinx LOVED HER, TOO. Messy? Yes. Dangerous? Yes. But in a world like this... Why wasn’t JINX allowed a shot at redemption, too?
I don’t know what’s funnier. That Caitlyn forged Jayce’s signature, that she knows how to forge his signature, or that Jayce just immediately covered for her when he found out.
I bamboozled you - there will be more than 6 😉Here's edition #1: Riot Games Characters.
So the Kirramans built the channel lock system and became very wealthy because of it. Then I recalled watching Mylo taking some extra time trying to pick the lock to Jayce's workshop in EP1.
It's not too farfetched to theorize that the Kirramans probably started as locksmiths, making locks for doors etc before eventually building the channel lock system. They even used keys as their family crest. And since the Kirramans apparently owned Jayce's workshop, they would've installed the best lock they have so it makes sense why he seems to be having at least some difficulty.
Then Vi just got too impatient and kicked it open, of course xD
Netflix Arcane Headcanons
Vi: she strikes me as the strong silent type at the bar that would just aggressively make eye contact with each other until one of them decides to come over
Caitlyn: I mean...we've seen the evidence- girl can handle herself and is a pro flirt. Very direct, very funny, girls instantly want to go home with her. come on, tall and British- in the bag
Jinx: *arsons cutely*
ARCANE TUMBLR HELP ME OUT, DID JAYCE SIGN THE RELEASE PAPERS OR DID CAIT FORGE HIS SIGNATURE??? IVE NEVER BEEN SO CONFUSED BUT THIS IS SO IMPORTANT IM GONNA DIE.
Love how the dinner party in ep9 is technically an “ officially introduce your girlfriend to the family” dinner kinda except everyone excluding Jinx is coerced there and Caitlyn never gets officially introduced
S/o who fixates and rants to them frequently
Hope you enjoy <3
Included: Vi, Jinx, Caitlyn
Vi would listen adamantly. Like, leaning forward and staring into your eyes adamantly
Growing up, Powder had her own little fixations and if she can sit through those, she can sit through anything
Sits very patiently and listens. Never interrupts and gets visibly upset if someone tries to interrupt you
Usually gets a snack whenever you start talking. While your rants won't always take super long, she still enjoys doing something with her hands
When you start running out of things to say, she asks questions so you can keep talking
Seeing how happy you are when talking about your interest is enough to keep her engaged
Vi doesn't really understand why you like whatever it is, but if it keeps you happy that's all she needs to know
There is nothing in the world that would stop Jinx from giving you her full attention
Sure she can get distracted at times by the voices in her head but she understands what it's like to have an interest be ignored.
She would never want you to feel that way, especially because of her
Really tries hard to not interrupt when you're talking because of a question she has
But you can tell when she has questions most of the time. Her leg keeps bouncing and its honestly really cute
You two can bounce back and forth with questions and answers and end up on a weird little branch off of the subject...neither of you is sure how you got there
It's nice to see she enjoys listening to you, and you're more than happy when she does the same
She's busy and you understand that. So while you try not to bother her with it too much, she always enjoys listening otherwise
Sometimes she does paperwork while you talk, she can still listen and it's nice to get something done while she listens.
If you ever stop talking because you think she's not listening, she stops what she's doing and asks you to continue.
She will go out of her way to learn more about what you're interested in because she wants to understand your thoughts
Makes sure you have whatever you need to actively do or learn about your interest.
If you start getting off subject Cait will remind you what you were talking about before if you forget
Whenever she's out, she keeps an eye out for stuff that might relate to your interest so she can bring it up and you can talk about it together
