look if you unironically say ‘money can’t buy happiness’ then either you’ve never faced a real financial struggle or you’ve achieved enlightenment, because goddamn does financial security feel an awful lot like happiness when it’s something you’re not used to
#spending money on myself makes me happy#spending money on other people makes me happy#not being in debt makes me happy#the knowledge of friends being successful and not survivng on a fucking living wage makes me FUCKING HAPPY (maqdaddio)
It was at that point that Shino began to plot to destroy the leaf village
Sometimes I think to myself, “do I really want to buy another chocolate bar?”
And then I remember that there is a super volcano under Yellowstone that is 40,000 years overdue and when it erupts it could potentially cover most if north America in ash and create a volcanic winter that kills half the worlds population
And I’m like, fuck yeah I want that chocolate bar
This person has the most real values to date
Q: what are your thoughts on ur and silver being gray's biological parents ? could explain silver's animosity towards him, both his daughter and his wife gave their life for gray.
I’ve thought about that before. It would account for Silver smelling like Gray, his magic reminding Gray of someone else’s, and his hostility towards Gray.
But I wonder if it would be too… cheesy? soap operatic?
And Mashima would need to explain why Gray was given up for adoption. Considering how torn up Ur was over losing Urtear, I don’t think she’d have just given Gray away. Unless that was the agreement she and Silver had when they separated—he got Gray, she kept Urtear?
But wouldn’t she have known Gray when he showed up, though?
Silver and Gray. Ur and Urtear. There’s the similarity of names in each pair, too.
but then wouldnt ultear disguised as zalty smelled like gray as well, this implies that biologically related people share a scent right ? ugghh this is so confusing, and natsu was surprised at him smelling like gray, so it probably hasnt occurred before. I wish there was more on silver. hopefully we get something next week, maybe at the end.(i have a feeling). it could also mean that Ultear was Ur’s daughter from another relationship ? i guess thats possible as well.
You also have to consider Silver’s reaction to Natsu. When they both met, Silver said ” Natsu, of all people”. That would imply that Silver knew Natsu somehow.
Usually, whenever a villain faces Natsu, they usually call him either Salamander, or his full name. The way he casually uses Natsu’s name means that they probably have some history together. And a long one at that.
The MS version translated that line like that. The CR version, I believe, had Silver say something along the lines of, “Natsu… it couldn’t be…” I think we need a third translation to act as a tie-breaker (or muddy the waters further *grin*).
(Mangapanda’s using the MS version. I just checked).
maybe it’s just the dialogue, but their poses in this make them look like they’re about to have a dance-off
