On the appropriation of Belial
This was supposed to be a reply to nomyriad about how Belial’s contract with his new master happened, but then I rambled. Ergo: Textwall under the readmore
another thing to consider: why judar and any candidate he brings in (he wasn’t with hakuei, en, kouha, etc during their captures) is considered less of a threat than sinbad after he had acquired seven djinn willfully
aka why wasn’t he already banned, since ugo knows he’s fallen?
why is a guy who got seven djinn to join up with him by their own free will considered to be more of a threat than a puppet of al-thamen?
keep your friends close, but your enemies closer
like really, very close
so close that you can feel your enemies breath on your neck
and you shiver with hatred and… anticipation?
turn around and look deep into your enemies eyes, letting your gaze drag down to their lips, your eyes intense with desire. push your enemies up against the wall.
make out with your enemies.
your friends, who are still close, are super uncomfortable and kinda grossed out
[ en best kill those two since hakuryuu’s firmly landed on my shitlist
if u hurt ei and mor i refuse to accept you as a character s2g ]
