    Ppl still stanning Gaius van Baelsar

    God, i really hope SHB keeps him firmly in "useful but uneasy ally that we still fucking hate" territory because ughhhhfh

    Someone responded to the screenshot from the trailer of him and Estinien with something like "two good snarky boys" and im like wtf...are we looking at the same image. Gaius isn't a good snarky anything, he's a self-righteous ass with a superiority complex only surpassed by Varis himself

    Sometimes i get grumpy bc I'm like YOU KNOW WHO IS A GOOD GAIUS. TOX GAIUS. YKNOW A LEADER WHO ACTUALLY CARES ABOUT HIS PEOPLE AND GOES AND HANGS OUT W THEM AND LISTENS TO THEIR GRIEVANCES AND PLAYS W THEIR CHILDREN. AND DOESN'T SLEEP WITH HIS ADOPTED DAUGHTER.

    Also he has great abs

    No contest.

    How do Nero fans have more self awareness tho lmao. They're like "this is my trash man, he's hilarious but also terrible" meanwhile GvB fans feel the need to convince people the crap he says can tooootally be taken at face value, nvm he conquered Ala Mhigo and left it...Like That. "But he was against committing war crimes!!" He still invaded a bunch of countries because he saw them as full of ignorant savages that needed to be protected from themselves but...ok.

    Yknow what fuck it i cant sleep again im going to make an appreciation post for ToX Gaius

    (Goldfish_Conqueror)_Gaius.png
    -Himbo

    -loves cats. Has like 50 million stray cats around his palace bc he's always feeding them

    -really intense all the time and comes off as scary at first but it's kind of that he doesn't know how to turn off resting bitch face. Probably autistic. Special interest is swords. And cats.

    -has no idea how to use a cell phone. Broke like 3 of them. Thought he broke another but it turns out it just ran out of battery. Had to have a 70 year old man teach him how to text.

    -ridiculously strong, won a country-wide fighting tournament at age 12 but officially lost because his final opponent had connections in high places

    -this injustice prompted him to decide he was going to be King someday so he could do better by everyone.

    -won the respect of an enemy commander by warning him that the area they were to do battle would be buried in an avalanche. He could have used it to wipe out the enemy troops but chose to spare their lives instead

    -the enemy commander (Lin/Wingul) was so impressed by this that he basically ditched his own clan to follow Gaius and they are probably boyfriends

    -i say probably because while he loves people and is very charismatic, Gaius is emotionally INCREDIBLY STUPID and thought Lin still hated him and was only following him for the good of their people

    -nvm that this guy has an experimental brain implant put in his skull so he can Fight Better because he's afraid Gaius will abandon him if he's not strong enough (they're both really Stupid and it's tragic)

    -his top subordinates are a bunch of misfits that are extremely loyal to him more or less because he treated them like human beings with value when no one else did

    -he doesn't understand he has friends even though the people he hangs out with clearly like him and enjoy his company (Stupid....)

    -meows like a cat when he's drunk

    -when the country he's at war with gets attacked by a third myserious invading force, he occupies it, protects it, makes sure his troops don't interfere with anyone's daily lives and spends some time hanging out w and playing with the local children

    -changed his name to protect his family/clan's identities when he became king. Has a sister that he would die for who is constantly exasperated about how married to his job he is. She's the only person who can tell him what to do.

    -regularly walks around in below-freezing temperatures without a shirt on



    ...tbh i probably based Keten on him subconsciously, lmao. (Physically at least. He just LOOKS grumpy, Keten is actually grumpy...)

    Me: so we stopped at this Mexican restaurant in New Hampshire and one of the menu items had a choice of sauces, and underneath it was a note that said "Most people find habanero inedible so make sure you're absolutely certain of your choice!"

    Aki: WHAT

    Me: Yeah, I read it and was like "Aki would find this insulting"

    Aki: I DO!!!

    Me: tbf I guess that area was pretty white

    Aki: ....their STATE MOTTO is "LIVE FREE OR DIE"

    Shadowbringers is great but the villain discourse is

    hooboy

    sits back and watches the Emet stans and the "LIKING A VILLAIN MAKES YOU PROBLEMATIC" crew eat each other alive while nervously eating popcorn w the rest of the reasonable people in this fandom

    --Imry grew up with/around several Miqo'te so she's accustomed to casual platonic physical affection, & she & Akiv'a cuddle and sleep near (or on) each other quite often and don't think much of it.

    (In fact he does some classic cat behaviors like affectionate headbutting and she's probably one of the few people he doesn't accidentally knock over when he gets the zoomies, just because she's twice his size LMAO)

    --we determined that at least in the universe where they're both Warriors of Light, it made the most sense that Akiv'a is the sundered 14th Convocation member. Also technically speaking, Imry's aether has been out of balance since she made Keten a physical body, but the Blessing of Light and the fact that the two of them still have a metaphysical connection has been keeping her stable. But it does mean she'd be unable to absorb much from the Lightwardens without the whole system falling apart.

    On top of that, Akiv'a's Echo ability is essentially aether manipulation, which allows him to cast without a catalyst and maintain multiple egis at once. (he basically never desummons Ifrit bc he's nuts. He does end up inhaling absurd amts of food a la Edward Elric because of it tho) He ends up unconsciously siphoning the Light off her, and not even Y'shtola notices until it's too late bc they're always hanging out together.

    --Emet-Selch is particularly annoyed by Imry, probably because she was the backup plan if Akiv'a failed except she went and split her soul on purpose, what the fuck??? Also she's naive and gullible, etc etc, and worst of all, this absolute mess of an imperfect being is best friends with his old best friend now and he may be. A little bit. Jealous. Not that he would EVER admit it.

    --When the Exarch pulled Akiv'a and Imry throught the rift, Keten got pulled through because of their connection, but got dumped somewhere in Il Mheg because they weren't with the other two in the Syrcus Trench at the time. The Light basically burns/drains them/makes them feel lethargic and shitty like it does to Ascians, so they went straight for the nearest cave and ended up hanging out w/ the Nu Mou until the rest of the party came along. They are now fiercely protective of these weird faerie dogs.

    --after defeating Innocence & the Light going berserk, Imry basically got burned through her armor bc Akiv'a fucking lost it when Emet shot his boyfriend the Exarch...yeah. Keten didn't go with them up Mt. Gulg bc just being near a Lightwarden would probably hurt a lot, and got a sympathy injury (?) from that, hence the bandages/burn. (usually they can tell when Imry gets hurt but it doesn't affect them, but the intensity of the Light was an exception)

    --Keten still has extreme resting bitch face lmao (the Light returning everywhere doesn't help, and it's actually painful for them to be in the same room as Akiv'a currently, but they're pretty good at not showing it. I was going to follow up w/ them basically falling over and needing a minute to get up again once they leave the room, though, because a creature of Darkness getting a faceful of Light hurts like a bitch)

    --i hate myself for deciding to draw them in armor

    bonus non spoilery meme summary of this comic lmfao

    Aki and I were talking abt the 14th (idk what fandom is referring to the WoL's intact soul as rn but i use that bc it's easy) in relation to our characters & since we have like 5 billion AUs...decided the AU part is which person actually was a member of the Convocation/friends w Hades in that universe. & the other person would be another summoner of Hydaelyn maybe.

    I'm tentatively going w/ the name Ariadne for Imry; i had a book of Greek myths as a kid that i read cover to cover a billion times and even tho they were...sanitized...they were still pretty brutal...i remember thinking she really got a shitty lot in life considering the sort of person she seemed to be so idk i have a fondness for the name.

    I was sort of thinking what would be interesting to me is if Imry were just...very different from them in every way, physically and otherwise, because it would frustrate Emet-Selch more...lol. so i think they had a very...cool, even temperament, tho maybe a bit of a mischievous streak.

    I was complaining that it was a little...milquetoast that ppl were drawing Amaurotians looking just...like Hyur...so Aki came up with the ears/horns idea & the face markings.

    I really like your Ariadne design, i love her cute little round face and think her being super calm while looking so cute is a great combo XD. My Amaurotine design is actually based off of a race in my Original storyverse. Lucan's specifically based off of my character Death. c:
