what’s your favorite canon moment of cudvac?
It’s a REALLY close toss up between the end moment where Ben says very emotionally to Cud “We are your friends” </3 AND that freaking adorable moment when Cud can’t quite manage how cute Ben is and how to answer his questions so he sort of mumbles like “Okay let me buy you a drink.”. BTL is so gay and so good.
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? :’)
When Westerns Were Un-American:
while this article strangely neglects to mention The Great Silence (no less Un-American then any film it did mention, it’s creators where inspired to make it by the deaths of Malcom X and Che Guevara after all), goes on a tangent about soviet movies that have little to do with spaghetti westerns or leftist thought, and misinterprets the relationship between Paco and Columba in The Mercenary, it’s still probably the best exploration of the trend spaghetti westerns had to have leftist themes, something that’s unfortunately frequently forgotten
blondeyes ask: what situation would necessitate an apology from each (or either, or neither hahaha) of them? what would the response of the other be?
Oh damn, uh well.
From Angel to Blondie…mmm you should really read Chapter 6 of the northfic– I feel like that’s going to be the only situation where Angel ever apologizes for anything, and how Blondie reacts is interesting enough as well :’)
From Blondie to Angel– I mean, Blondie already apologizes way more than he should, imo, and Angel sort of knows that. There are a lot of things that Angel definitely willfully manipulates Blondie into doing that Blondie feels the need to apologize for and that’s just….frustrating and strange and confusing to Angel. Ch 3 of northfic is probably the best example of that, I think. Angel knows he’s pushed Blondie too far, but Blondie knows he’s fucked up too, sigh. They both pay for it but in some sense Angel threw the first stone. I won’t say he feels guilty but there’s definitely some sense in which he has hurt Blondie, which is Bad.
Thank you for the Most Excellent Ask fren you are so appreciated <3
what would the ideal vacation for blondeyes be and/or what would they think it would be
this is a fucking excellent question thank you bec you are my hero.
man so in some ways I feel like the road north is sort of what Angel would have imagined a vacation of sorts to be like – or at least something like (who built) the road. I can imagine he was thinking like “let’s climb a mountain and have really dodgy sex in caves, maybe creep out a few townspeople and leave a fucking legend in our wake”. In any case they’d need something that keeps them busy but allows them a little bit of peace, but they’re bad at peace, so vacation doesn’t really suit them all that well. Also anything that allows for new and ridiculous sex scenarios is a plus. But I think Blondie has a bit of a panic if anything goes too well so he’s likely to do something to self-sabotage and Angel is likely to do something stupid for the aes, and you know. So maybe I’d say they should vacation with Sue and Cas (poor Sue and Cas, lol), or with the rest of polyfam.
Polyfam should go to Disney, I think – the one close to LA. That’s all I’m gonna say on that 😉
This might be better answered in a modern au setting….with Verdict Three vibes in the back of my mind I always imagined an ideal modern!Angel as thinking a skeevy Las Vegas vacation was the best possible thing, you might remember in the original Tallahassee au concept they drive down to a motel and actually have a cute time and makeout on the beach and are soooorta almost honest with each other for once. There’s a variant on that in the second act of Verdict Three, but it takes place in these cute little nowhere villages on the Gulf Islands off of Vancouver.
So imagine like, sweet small seaside town, little bullshit market that Blake absolutely hates, but obscure bookstore where Vin buys Blake the book like in (who built) the road. They still get to make out on a beach, but it’s a rocky thing with little tidepools where Vin remarks that barnacles have the largest penis-to-body ratios of any animal with a straight face, and Blake absolutely cannot fucking believe he is in love with this man, and yet, here we are – they almost have a moment where it all seems like it’s going to go well before the shit hits the fan the next day, anyways.
I´m just rewatching “Thunderbolt and Lightfoot” and look what i found …there´s a “LOVE” sticker/poster in the background in two different scenes and in both cases there are direct cuts between
Thunderbolt and Lightfoot. So…Thunderfoot is canon and nobody can convince me this is just a coincidence.
