i know raphael gets next to 0 attention otherwise so i wish could let this go but i still get REALLY annoyed when he’s included in “ladies of spn”

[identity profile] theamazingdalet.livejournal.com

i mean i know raphael’s never coming back bc the showrunners are just as racist & sexist as the fans but

i like to think that if he DID he might actually approach cass with some understanding?

imagine raphael laying low for a bit instead of making an automatic power move, esp when he realizes cass is still alive

but then actually catching up on what cass has been doing, and trying to do, and what he’s been through and WHY

like i’m sure raphael could appreciate why cass opposed him after s5, even if he would not tolerate it, but even if he didn’t then i’m sure he could and if for once an archangel might be willing to shut up and listen for a bit they could do so much together, raphael has the experience that cass doesn’t, he’s the rock

just imagine the old power and the new will, and what they could do for each other and their family

at the very least, just imagine raphael being the one to finally offer cass sanctuary

you gotta hate how s/pn fandom’s “proof” that raphael & hannah or even all the angels are nonbinary

is literally nothing but their own ignorance of trans/nb-ness. their diehard cissexism IS their proof

but hey, they will scrape the bottom of any possible barrel to claim their show is progressive

[identity profile] theamazingdalet.livejournal.com

this is the tl;dr version bc i can’t be bothered to get in depth and i don’t think it’s necessary but

pure, stubborn, immovable selfishness, i realize, is the archangels’ defining trait honestly

“no one makes us do anything” is not a free will line, it’s a “we never listen” line

it’s a goddamn tragedy what happened to heaven and earth bc god left the universe in control of beings whose motto is “i’m going to what i’m going to do, and i dare you to stop me” (although as far as i can tell, god himself isn’t much different)

“why won’t any of you listen?”

“they don’t listen, castiel, because their hearts are mine, and i’m too far up my own ass to listen to anyone else”

like goddamn no wonder sam n dean were the vessels

actually, once they get on the road, balthazar starts to wonder why raphael needs a shield when, in actual combat, he seems to be able to repel attacks through sheer force of his “stoic badass” persona

it’s the glint in his eye

so the next time raphael brings up the shield in training balthazar just sighs loudly like,

“how about you teach me to defend myself just by being cool”

and raphael just raises his eyebrows for a long moment like, “you have a ways to go for that”

and then he actually starts laughing, and cass laughs, and naomi’s like, “was that a request or an insult, i can’t tell”

endiness replied to your post “ACTUALLY HANG ON A MINUTE why is cass balthazar’s brother, but…”
idk if it’s a reference to anything, but i always thought it was balthazar’s way of like denoting that raphael is older than him. or like higher up in the celestial chain of command than he is.

if it’s not a godfather ref then i’m sure you’re exactly right.

i just hadn’t actually stopped. and thought about it until now, and it’s making me laugh in light of s11/amara.

well actually, now that i think about it, my guess would be it’s also a ref to michael stepping in as father and raphael’s relation to him.

ACTUALLY HANG ON A MINUTE

why is cass balthazar’s brother, but “raffie” is his uncle? why would raphael be his uncle?

i just thought of this and it’s really bugging me for some reason. was it a godfather reference or?

okay but Raphael asking Balthazar why he fights with twin swords instead of sword and shield, wouldn’t that make him a better bodyguard for Cass?

“I am the shield,” says Balthazar.

actually i think this the first AU i’ve had where i can keep the original chars’ last names and they don’t sound so bad, i mean

• raphael aurion
• castiel brunel
• hannah wilder
• claire combatir
• naomi sage
• even balthazar irving doesn’t sound half bad

only ambriel and uriel need new ones so far and not because they sound off hrmmmm

I do need a new name for cass’ dad though, bc “frank” lol no. also his mum who didn’t exist(??) in the game, pls help

“Would stab with a butter knife if the opportunity presented itself”

is my favourite description of Kratos’ attitude towards Kvar.

but. there’s no one like that. for Raphael.

It’s fine, i mean, i realized Alistair makes a super Kvar (and Lilith for Pronyma maybe?) but

[identity profile] theamazingdalet.livejournal.com

right, so, tales of symphonia au.

i’ve kind of mashed genis & lloyd into one character who is now balthazar. i haven’t finished the game yet, so i hope that holds up.

cass is collette obv

naomi is raine, but she’s not from iselia, she’s prob a professor hired from palmacosta academy or something along with

raphael, who is kratos, duh. a mercenary who was deliberately hired beforehand by the village to escort cass.

ftr, i just reached ozette for the first time, or rather, i’m just leaving for the first time, bout to head to altessa’s place.

the tethe’alla gang is giving me more trouble, like

i think hannah makes a good sheena? and claire for presea probably?

but who is zelos? and regal? and like all of the villains, i really don’t know…

too many people. maybe i’m in over my head but the story has so much potential? it’s like stelglow that way

also, what’s a good, non-appropriative alternative for “mana”?
