Pathways – Chapter 1 (Breaking the Cycle)

black-talon:

Fandom:
For A Few Dollars More | Westworld

Pairing:
“Manco” | The Man with No Name/Douglas Mortimer

Summary:

The ending is always the same, Mortimer rides off alone, but somehow Manco broke the cycle. Now they ride together on a path that even Manco isn’t sure off anymore.

Chapter 1

So this is a bit of a strange mix, especially considering how little fanfics there are within this fandom, but this idea has been stuck in my head for awhile now and I can’t seem to stop thinking about it.

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!

FAFDM rewatch commentary

So I showed @stephanie221 For a Few Dollars More …here are my thoughts on round two…

  • @stephanie221 pointed out that Mortimer like….really plays against type being a white-hat-character with a black hat. 
  • The cowboy flirting scene is just as good if not better the second time around
  • Manco/Indio is actually a lot more believable than I gave it credit for…I believe it was @chunchomunos that brought it up as a thing that someone used to be into and I was EXTREMELY skeptical, but they actually have some pretty serious chemistry in the moments that they do interact (is it hate chemistry? maybe. Is it hot? yes.). Maybe I’ll gif/cap a few to show what I mean. I don’t ship it but there is smthn you could work with there. 
  • and adding to that, Indio is way hotter than I gave him credit for the first time
  • why does Mortimer have so many arbitrary skills???
  • It’s interesting how much Manco really is like….caught in two places I feel in the way he reacts to his life as a bounty hunter. At moments he seems to really enjoy being a smart-mouthed punk, cf. his very extra entrance at the card game scene. But there also seem like moments where he’s committed to getting out of the life as soon as possible, just settling down. I felt like in the final scene where he’s shooting down Indio’s men he’s legitimately…tired. Anyways maybe this is just me reading into it re: my fic, but that was cool to see. 
  • relatedly, I realized I subconsciously based the Greygorge – Blake Valley showdown in my fic entirely on the scene where they’re riding between El Paso and Agua Caliente. Something about those winding hills you can almost-but-not-quite hide within. 
  • the double whump scene is also just as good if not better the second time around 
  • Unfortunately, I find Clint Eastwood and his pretty hands a lot prettier than I did on the first watch (this is 100% Blondie’s fault, I have such affection).
  • Lee is still the hottest forever though <3 <3 <3 MORTY
  • WHY is the ending LIKE THAT. It’s a good thing the FAFDM fanfiction tag is so saturated with good stuff :’)

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?

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? :’)

Shipping Asks!

“In that case I’m sorry… That’s not bad. Indio sent four men to Santa Cruz. And one man returns… a new man without a scratch. Mm-mm. Indio’s no idiot. When you ride up to him and show him that little nick, he might believe you.”
