Okay so here’s a question. What are your interpretations of this part of Captive Prince? I’m not sure if I’m overthinking it, but I’m never sure if I’ve grasped it properly?
Tumblr media
Nicaise is filled with horror by the idea that Laurent will tell the Regent he wants him. Laurent clearly never would and is filled with pity at the thought.
So what would be the actual consequences of Laurent telling the Regent he wants Nicaise?
I have assumed that Nicaise, for all his frightened posturing, knows that to end up as a pawn between Laurent and the Regent is far worse than his current precarious and tragic situation, on the cusp of being discarded anyway.
I’m just wondering what specifically Laurent thinks will wreck Nicaise. Destroy him somehow. Is it realising just how disposable he is to the Regent? Even as Nicaise determinedly clings, the frightened child that he is, to the delusion the Regent won’t dispose of him, he also knows deep inside he will. Is that the truth that would destroy him?
Or just how evil the Regent is? That he has been abused into loving someone capable of horrific things, and once he sees Nicaise as a vulnerability for Laurent, the Regent will use and abuse him in order to further hurt, undermine and destroy Laurent?
I feel it’s one of those moments that elusively remain out of my grasp, so honestly someone please enlighten me 🙏

A drawing of Conundrum and Edward vibing in his workshop, commissioned by @finniestoncrane! ^-^🖤🤍 I'm almost a little sad to let them go, as I greatly enjoyed the pleasant atmosphere created by their mere togetherness 😌

The real problem of humanity is the following: 
We have Paleolithic emotions, medieval institutions and godlike technology.

"You are the softest person that I know, but you are also the strongest person I know.. you are an enigma to me. I don't know how you can be so strong, yet be so soft.. it's a conundrum that my heart finds joy in."
I feel happy.. every time that I look in your eyes - eUë

[The Jedi] are not like cops who catch murderers. They're warrior-monks who keep peace in the universe without resorting to violence. The Trade Federation is in dispute with Naboo, so the Jedi are ambassadors who talk to both sides and convince them to resolve their differences and not go to war.
If they have to use violence, they will, but they are diplomats at the highest level. They've got the power to send the whole force of the Republic, which is 100000 systems, so if you don't behave they can bring you up in front of the Senate. They'll cut you off at the knees, politically.
They're like peace officers.
As the situation develops in the Clone Wars they are recruited into the army, and they become generals. They're not generals. They don't kill people. They don't fight. They're supposed to be ambassadors. There are a lot of Jedi that think that the Jedi sold out, that they should never have been in the army, but it's a though call. It's one of those conundrums, of which there's a bunch of in my movies. You have to think it through. Are they going to stick by their moral rules and all be killed, which makes it irrelevant, or do they help save the Republic? They have good intentions, but they have been manipulated, which was their downfall.
— George Lucas

Deny deny why try?
Wanting seems a massive
Waste of time, a wayward
Impasse to cross
Tease and dot eyes
Spark flickering, fading in
And out weighed down by desire
Cumulative fascination coated
In guilt of gratification
Body of evidence--the nerve
Endings electrified
Disuse does not defuse
Though refusing to acknowledge
Yearning still surges
Urges crackling undeterred
Under a subzero surface

Wait, Rohan actually called out for Koichi at the moment of death. Koichi wasn't there. He wasn't pleading for help or smth. He was just......calling out for his only friend.
That. Damn.
