ep 15
Most important new canon info learned?

Guy's a sprawler.

But, dude, bad move pulling your sword on the king. You can't marry Natalia, because you will never, ever win an argument with her now.

And how much do I love anime!Ion? I liked game!Ion fine, but anime!Ion is just so much more expressive. Of course, thanks to cal_reflector, all I can think is, "I'm Ion, bitch."

Can you imagine an Ion in the real world, like, if the Pope were some fifteen-year-old kid? No one would listen to him.

Abyss 15 did not make me happy. What's a sprawler?

If Ion were the Pope, the Catholic Church would once again regain its status as the most powerful organization on the planet, and you can be damned sure no old fuglies will get away with touching choir boys. Pope Ion will excommunicate them to the Inner World, minus gas masks.

What's a sprawler?

He sleeps with his arms and legs sprawled across the mattress. Probably a defense to keep the maids from crawling into bed with him.

Abyss 15 did not make me happy.

Ignore the whole peace treaty signing scene and focus on the good things in this episode. 1) Ion telling Mohs to STFU. 2)The king realizing Natalia is his daughter no matter what. 3)Natalia and Asch's scene. (Despite being a Guy/Nat shipper, I do like their relationship, too. He's clearly in love with her.) 4)Some screentime for Noelle. (Despite being a Guy/Nat shipper, I could get behind Guy/Noelle, too. They could be total gearheads together.)

Alright, but since the peace treaty scene was half the episode, it is rather hard to overlook.

Noelle... up till now she only strikes me as a character too minor to pay attention to. Also, what happens in the game that makes you think Guy and Tear share common ground?

I think they got Ion's character all wrong. He's actually supposed to have been a flippant awesome little smart ass. Maybe that would have made the game more interesting? There's enough nice people in this show as it is.

With Guy and Tear, I think it's because they're both so close to Van, and wish they could get him to stop the insanity. They have a nice little moment in the game where Tear thanks Guy for caring about Van. They're the two who know him the best, and so on some level, they understand him, even if they think he's wrong.

Guy and Noelle also have a cute little scene in the game, but you're right that she's pretty minor a character. I just think it might be nice for Guy to have someone to geek out about machines with.

Ion as a smartass would be a different way to go.... Actually, it's very easy to picture him that way....

I guess I have to ask----how much if anything are you spoiled about, and how much if anything do you want to be spoiled about?

Not spoiled. I don't mind waiting until the show ends, although it sounds like the anime is leaving a bunch of good stuff out.

I'm not fervently following the show, but I'll become more interested in it if I read a super duper awesome insightful fic about it. That's happened to me on a few occasions where a writer portrays two unrelated characters and it clicks for me. Touya-Tomoyo was like that too, as was Touya-Kaho.

Yeah, well, my first attempt is pretty awful. You know how they say when you write your first book, throw it away? That's kind of how this is turning out. I need to get the first bad one out of my system so I can improve.

I've got a couple drabbles I might put up soon, although they'll have some spoilers in them.
