writeoutoflove asked: Vincent/Sebastian + car ran out of gas.
Man, I definitely read this prompt as “flat tire” so I wrote about a flat tire instead. Sorry! (That’s okay, this way’s sexier.)
“It isn’t going to change itself.”
Six words, and Sebastian Michaelis is out on the side of the road, trying to remove this goddamned flat tire. His boss is leaning against the hood of the car, watching. Of course, Vincent won’t lift a finger to help. Like father, like son.
Sebastian inspects the tire with his finger, looking for the source of the leak, and finds a small cut clean through the rubber. Deliberate. Must have been recent, or they would have noticed before they drove out to the middle of nowhere. He glances up and notices Vincent watching him, smiling smugly, taking in Sebastian’s messy hair, his rolled-up sleeves, his unbuttoned vest.
Ah, so this was either all a test or a ploy to get Sebastian hot and bothered, so to speak. Well then. Like father, like son, indeed.
Okay guys I didn’t make this one…
Someone needs to tell me what’s going on here because…
It looks…not great. Vincent Phantomhive, this is not what one would call “good parenting.”
crack-butler replied to your post: > suddenly people want Vincent/Sebastian …
…wait why. This hate is something you need to explain.
Is it really? Do I have to? It won’t make sense to anyone else (aside from Allie and Seth who like converted me to this school of thought) but okay.
You might as well call it “a woman’s intuition.” So far, basically without fail, Yana Toboso has taken the entire supporting cast and turned them into something different than what you’d expect, one by one—Madam Red into JACK THE FUCKING RIPPER, the servants competent, Lizzie badass, the Circus Arc cast vaguely sympathetic, etc. Why not do the same with Ciel’s parents?
Allie put it best when she said earlier that she didn’t trust Vincent. I mean, Yana in—I think this might have been Final Record or something—put some adorable doodles of Ciel and his parents like:
And the one which follows this up is of Vincent coddling Ciel (but I can’t find it right now). Yana has a bit of a track record with these things in that she, you know, drew a bunch of cute pictures of Claude and his pet eel on Twitter and Claude turned out to be THE ULTIMATE EVIL BASTARD.
So I don’t trust Vincent, no. He obviously can’t be the most scrupulous of individuals to begin with if he’s the Queen’s Watchdog, but who’s to say there isn’t more there? I think that sums it up quite nicely.
Also some stuff he did in modern!verse back when he was alive didn’t help matters much for Ciel in the present ergo I want to punch him in the face.
