with having such a disturbing, cursed past, not a day goes by where something isn’t haunting doc... quite literally. a powerful spirit of his past, one he doesnt even remember the identity of, follows him every day and night. he taunts doc, telling him he’ll have to return to bilgewater one day and when that day comes, it’ll be the last for the old man.
doc feels... indifferent. he’ll do anything in his power to be around and to protect slommi til the ends of the lands and seas-- anyone in his crew, in fact. however, his past is riddled with horrors, people who never got recompense for his actions, for the wicked crimes and pillaging of countless villages and homes. he’s an old man and he’s resigned to his fate. one day, indeed, he will have to return back to bilgewater. that day he loathes, though he knows it must be done
kayn vc : thanks for making noxian pricks lives hard , loves
BLOOD MOON | Relations with the cult
Despite being a pawn for the cult’s over-arching goals, Jhin considers his fellow cult members and some of the demons the cult summons as the closest to a proper family he’s ever had.
When it comes to demons, Jhin starts off on a wary foot, knowing the harm that could come to him from angering one (after all, most of their first interactions come from having to share his body with them), but not necessarily knowing enough on how to properly interact with one to speak with one confidently.
As discussed with @death-from-below, there are some demons who he has a closer friendship with, like Pyke, who seems to regard the young mage as his master and has become quite protective of Jhin. Despite a closer friendship, Jhin still seems a little awkward, taking the aforementioned knowledge into account with the majority of their interactions.
Though not fully related to the cult, demons and passerby's may notice a spirit dressed in white robes closing in on Jhin’s trail and may occasionally be asked for the mage’s whereabouts, albeit under his birth name, Fanhua. Jhin himself knows a little bit about the rumored ghost, but is currently unaware that the spirit looking for him is actually his father, now an onryo seeking to torment his son from beyond the grave.
Fandom: League of Legends
Pairing: Pyke X Reader
Warnings: Murder? Typical Pyke honsetly. Maybe out of character as I don’t know much about Pyke ^^
· Pyke may be filled with rage, but he would never hurt his partner.
· They met one day when he was attempting to kill her father; one of the men that watched him get swallowed.
· He was so captivated by her beauty, something that he wasn’t used to, that the two escaped
· But Pyke was determined to see her again
· And he did
· She walking down the docks one day, watching her father work when she spotted Pyke nearby
· Confused and slightly afraid, she headed towards him in a secluded area
· “Who are you?” She asked as she knelt down so she could see him
· “I’m Pyke, the very man your father watched die.”
· From then on she would visit the docks to see him
· She felt guilty about her father leaving him to die
· Pyke, deep down, knew he shouldn’t be talking to her
· After all, her father is one of the many on his list
· But he couldn’t help it
· And slowly but surely, the two began to develop feelings for each other
· Pyke knew this was extremely wrong
· Like I said, he had to kill her father
· But he decided he couldn’t
· He couldn’t watch the girl he likes in pain
· “Can I tell you something?”
· “I like you”
· “I like you too, sadly”
· She just giggled
· From there on their relationship blossomed
· The two gradually fell in love
· And Pyke felt bad
· He knew one day she would die and he would be left to suffer and struggle to deal with her death
· He considers leaving her
· But decides against it
· He would regret it obviously
· He raises his worries with her
· She simply kisses him
· “Who knows? Maybe I’ll come back as an undead.” She winks
· And she does!
· Her relationship with Pyke was that deep that some God decided he couldn’t watch them suffer
· Despite Pykes need for revenge
· And the two spent eternity together
Look, you may not even like Talks Machina, but whatever is said there is canon. And not even in a Rowling-saying-wizards-poop-themselves kinda way. There's too much going on at the table to be able to convey what every character thinks and feels at every given moment. Specially with shy and closed of characters.
They only way of knowing Pyke and Keyleth had crushes on Percy is the campaign wrap up. The Tal'Dorei council was also revealed in one. The fact that Fjord didn't remember the whole Uk'othoa debacle, Caleb's feelings for Jester (or any other character for that matter), Vex's intentions after stealing his brother's boots...all revealed during Talks. And that's the canon, period.
Now, if you want to headcanon that Pyke's secret crush was Larking, the Tal'Dorei council is a bunch of Kobolds in a trenchcoat, or that Fjord is super competent and was actually acting as bait for Uk'othoa; you are more than welcome to do so. If you only watch the campaign, it may even seem to you like one of the possibilities inside the canon.
But please, I beg of thee, don't bring into campaign 3 that energy of "if I have to watch Talks to know it, it's not canon". Talks it's not like Rowling's Twitter account, it's an official part of the Critical Role programming. It's the actual cast and guest explaining their characters' decisions and feelings.
Pyke didn't have the opportunity to explore her crush and it wasn't relevant enough to mention it, specially considering how little time Ashley had in the show. She missed most episodes, so she didn't want to derail the one's she was in with something so out of left field. That doesn't mean she did not intend Pyke to have a crush on Percy, it just means she couldn't show it in the campaign m. So, the canon answer to "Who was Pyke's crush?" Is Percy.
Now, I'm the first one to say "fuck canon" whenever I feel like it, but it's important to know that the canon exists. You can headcanon whatever you want, but you can't deny Talks it's an important part of the canon. Here you don't have P.O.V.s or camera angles to convey complex emotions even without speaking, so Talks it's the only way to canonically express some things.
It shouldn't be so difficult. You can say "I wish they had found time to explore this in the campaign" or "my headcanon is way cooler than this", but you can not say Talks Machina is not canon. That's all for today, folks!
