A couple of things happened to me these days:
1)I watched the Dollars Trilogy of Sergio Leone. In the “wrong” order (For a Few Dollars More, then Fistfull of Dollars , then the Good, the Bad and The Ugly) . Fun fact, while western is a genre I loved in French comics, I had actually never seen a real western until very recently, and I was worried I wouldn’t like the real genre. Turns out I was wrong, at least concerning spaghetti westerns.
2)After weeks of looking for it, I finally found a little painting box I had for years but never used before. It’s the first time I’m really painting something, not just following instructions for a school thing or from a model.
I like the result.
(also if you happen to ship Manco and Mortimer from For A Few Dollars More please talk to me I’m desperate)
I ship them!!! a bunch of folks do
hey! yeah, welcome, there are a good few of us who ship them!
rate Mantimer from 1-10 and explain why? what’s your favorite headcanon of Mantimer?what’s your favorite canon moment of Mantimer? 😀
it’s mantimer all the way down huh!
honestly its like…. 10 outta 10, very not standard ship but that just makes it better! having the older person be more vulnerable isnt common. also I love their contrast and I really really want someone to take care of Mortimer! and I like their banter and stuff
hmmmmmm I dont think I have many headcanons for them, they’re pretty canon you know? i guess that Manco is trying to fight off Indio’s men when their both being beaten because he sees Mortimer is in such bad shape (thanks Boots
how did you start shipping mantimer?
I shipped it before I even saw the film. @mcicioni-blog told me it was shippy and I watched the film with full intentions to write a fic. I had a notepad open where I’d write down times of shippy moments that I liked for idea fodder later.
I honestly had never done that with a ship before, like gone in to the content expecting to ship them. For Mantimer that turned out really well, but for other ships I’ve seen (notably Farasquez), I went in expecting something different, and came out feeling like they were profoundly unshippable.
Lbr though, Mantimer is the most shippable pasta ship other than Cudvac. What’s not to love? :’)
