Late Edo Samurai Films
聽So earlier today I was speaking with Nulrick (The Shogunate Youtube Channel) about samurai films and I wanted to post my thoughts in regards to part of the conversation here. The specific subject matter being that I have a hard time taking samurai films seriously if they are set in the later Edo period. Let me explain. 聽The Siege of Osaka, arguably the battles that ended the Sengoku Jidai, took place in 1615. Shimabara (the Christian rebellion) ended in 1638. So films up until about 1700 I can understand having a bad ass samurai protag. You either are a vet of the Sengoku Jidai, or of Shimabara, or get trained by one. Okay sure. But films set in the later Edo Period having bad ass samurai, especially ronin, I鈥檓 like聽鈥渙kay but how?鈥 聽 聽By 1750 Japan hasn鈥檛 seen real war in a century. Samurai are mostly deadbeat politicians that owe large debts to merchants. Martial arts is聽鈥渞equired learning鈥 but mostly ceremonial. Then add in the fact that outside of probably Satsuma and Aizu most things related to samurai combat and practice are far more ceremonial in nature.聽 聽 But of course you have our protag. Usually some muscular male ronin who is a master swordsman. Even though he hails from a small village near Kyoto. That I鈥檓 sure was full of katana and kids willing to help practice with them? o.O okay.聽 聽 聽 Don鈥檛 get me wrong, I have willing supsension of disbelief and I still watch and adore samurai flims set in pretty much any time period. It is just part of me will always look at stuff set between roughly 1720 and 1850 and go聽鈥....yeah. sure chief.鈥

Why do you reblog your own fics so much?
Because someone might as well!? And look at this. Look. At. This.
Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media
Does this look right to you??
These are just the last three fics I wrote. I appreciate the likes, believe me I do, but you have to understand. Likes do nothing for content creators. It鈥檚 the reblogs. Because that鈥檚 how you find shit on your dashboard. Through reblogs. Not likes. This isn鈥檛 twitter or tiktok or instagram. This is a website that鈥檚 run by the reblog system.
Reblogging helps content creators put their stuff out there. Why do you think so many people stopped writing fanfic and creating beautiful fanart and edits? It鈥檚 because they put in hours of work and don鈥檛 get nearly enough notes for their masterpieces. Yes we do this because we enjoy it but like鈥ome validation won鈥檛 hurt. A boost of confidence here and there might be all someone needs to finish whatever thing they started and left.
Anyway, I鈥檓 still going to reblog my shit鈥

聽This caught my eye in the new TKR trailer. Why? Why does Hyuuga Masamune look so sad? Mitsunari鈥檚 sweet boy is too pure to be looking this sad! I hope he is okay :(

Quiet Flame (Ikesen Fanfic)
Mitsuhide x Mai mild fluff fanfic. Teen rating. 聽It was a cold, harsh, night. Outside of a small cabin a heavy wind began to blow. At first a few snowflakes danced gracefully upon the wind. Yet as the wind had picked up so did the snow. Soon it was clear a full on snowstorm was setting in. 聽 Inside the cabin Mai鈥檚 expression grew steadily more concerned as she watched the snow pick up. Dressed in some heavier robes to keep winter鈥檚 cold away she wondered how long that would work to keep the cold at bay. Yet as her expression became more sullen her vision went dark. With a small gasp she stepped backwards to feel a well toned chest behind her head. 鈥淭hat is quite the sad expression, little mouse.鈥 Mitsuhide said in a teasing tone. Mai steadily relaxed, leaning back against his frame while moving her hands up to wrap around his wrists. Mitshide slowly lowered his arms to her side and wrapped them around her as she turned her head to better gaze up at him. As she tilted her head back and he leaned his forward they met one another鈥檚 gaze. As he looked into her eyes her expression softened. Her lips transformed from a decided frown to more of a pout. 鈥淭he snowstorm is getting so bad.鈥 though as she tried to tilt her head back down to look out the window again Mitsuhide lifted his right arm, her hand still wrapped around his wrist, to hold her chin and stop her. He kept gazing into her eyes. 鈥淲e鈥檙e in the North during winter. Snowstorms and blizzards are commonplace here. If Masamune wanted us to arrive on time for the ceremony he's holding then he shouldn鈥檛 have scheduled it for mid winter.鈥 his tone and expression both seemed annoyed. Not at Mai of course but at the situation Masamune had put them in. He had gone back North from Azuchi to hold a large ceremony in his home province to celebrate recent additions to his family鈥檚 castle. After he had talked up his home province, talked up how great his castle was, and then added he would be doing most of the cooking himself Mai had quickly told Mitsuhide they absolutely had to attend. While externally he gave a sarcastic reply to keep up appearances, inside he had already begun dreading traveling that far North so late in the year. 鈥淗ow bad do you think it will get?鈥 Mai asked as she finally let go of his wrists. As he let go of her chin his expression softened a bit, dropping his usual fox life appearance for a more mild and honest tone. 鈥淚t's hard to say. This could be a brief snowstorm, or it could be a full blizzard. Sadly we won鈥檛 know until it stops. For now we鈥檒l have to stay here. Traveling in a blizzard would be lethal.鈥 The pair had come to this shack to rest a bit along their travel North. The sun was going to set soon and it didn鈥檛 seem anyone had used the cabin for quite a while. They had tied up their house outside and came into the cabin to rest.聽 Deciding to hunker down for the night ended up being a wiser choice than either of them could have expected. 聽 As the wind picked up outside it began getting colder inside the cabin. Walking over to the sunken hearth. Taking two stones from a traveling pack they had brought with them Mitsuhide smacking them together over a stack of kindling he had assembled after they had first arrived. It took several tries or smacking the steel and agate together to generate the needed sparks but within a fairly short amount of time Mitsuhide had gotten a fire going. It wasn鈥檛 roaring but as Mitsuhide sat and beckoned Mai close it would be enough to help her warm up. 鈥淪tanding near a window on a cold night won鈥檛 help you stay warm, little mouse.鈥 he said in a sweet tone. 聽 Sitting next to him she rested her head against his arm as they both gazed at the fire. As some time started to pass and the sun was now fully setting it was steadily becoming darker around them. The fire would soon become the only light in the cabin. Yet even in the dark she felt herself against him, felt his warmth. Though the silence of the moment would soon be broken as Mai gave a small sneeze. Mitsuhide looked shocked for a moment before his expression looked concerned. 鈥淚t will be difficult to travel if you catch a cold. Wait here,鈥 he said. Getting up and digging in their traveling packs he took out two small jars of water and added them to the black pot hanging above the hearth. The water would take some time to boil but he could use it to make tea for her later. As he sat back down Mai tried to get herself comfortable against his arm again but instead Mitsuhide pulled her into his lap. His foxlike eyes seemed to glow in the darkness, reflecting the fire鈥檚 light as he held her close. 鈥淚f you get too warm like this let me know,鈥 he said tenderly. Yet she didn鈥檛 resist his embrace but instead just curled up closer against him. 鈥淭his is fine,鈥 she said, `` it was just a sneeze. I don鈥檛 feel like I have a cold.鈥 she assured him as he briefly rested his forehead against hers to try and feel her temperature.聽 She briefly closed her eyes as she enjoyed feeling the skin on skin contact between them. After traveling all day and then becoming worried about the snowstorm she was beyond tired. Mitsuhide moved his forehead away from hers as she completely rested her head against his chest. Enjoying her rest and being able to rest against him Mai finally gave a smile. 鈥淢mmm, I like this.鈥 she said in a sleepy tone. 鈥淏eing trapped in a possible blizzard?鈥 he asked curiously, but Mai just shook her head. 鈥淣o, this. Being alone with you. Knowing no one else can be around to see us.鈥 she said, raising her head up a bit and softly kissing him. As she did she looked into his eyes. While he couldn鈥檛 see her face well she could see his. Mitsuhide kissed her back, holding her back as he did to make sure she wouldn鈥檛 fall backwards into the firepit. As she broke the kiss Mai kept her gaze on him, sitting up a bit in his lap. 鈥淏eing like this I get the real you. Not the you that you put on for everyone else. I know that as long as the snow lasts I get the real聽 you. I know you get to relax. Because you don鈥檛 have to lie to anyone.鈥 his face looked both surprised and a bit sad at the same time. Even now while he worried about her she was thinking of him. About the charade he constantly put on to protect his Lord and the others. 鈥淵es little mouse. Right now I am the real me, and the real me is all yours.鈥 he whispered as she kissed him again before leaning against him. 聽 With Mai in his arms Mitsuhide laid down, letting Mai rest on him. Giving a small kiss to his lips, and then to the middle of his chest above his heart she laid down on him. As Mitsuhide thought of the water and the tea he had planned to make for her he gazed at the girl. She was so tired and so comfortable that even as he had been talking to her she was already falling asleep. It only took laying down with her for the exhausted girl to fully pass out. Just how tired had she been already when he kissed her? 鈥淭he tea can wait then鈥 he said softly before giving a small sigh. The position he found himself in wasn鈥檛 exactly comfortable. Yet he didn鈥檛 want to disturb her. When she woke up later he could shift his position. She tended to move enough in her sleep. At least he hoped she would move around later. With how tired she had become he couldn鈥檛 help but wonder鈥.. 聽 As the night went on she wouldn鈥檛 move much. Mitsuhide鈥檚 back, arms, and shoulders started to hurt until by Buddha鈥檚 mercy she finally shifted, allowing him to do so as well. By the time morning came Mai found herself as the small spoon cuddled with her back to Mitsuhide. The fire was still going and she wondered just how much sleep Mitsuhide had gotten the previous night. She didn鈥檛 even feel him move and yet he must have to keep the fire going. 聽 Looking around the small cabin the sun鈥檚 light greeted her. Blinking at first she jumped when she realized what it meant. As she quickly got up, a tired looking MItsuhide gazed at her confused. He had finally fallen asleep only to be woken up by her sudden movements as she escaped his arms. Slowly lifting himself up and resting his weight on his hands Mitsuhide watched as Mai ran to the window. Outside a layer of snow had fallen upon the ground but the sun was certainly out. The large house they had ridden here seemed to be pacing a bit around the side of the building. 聽 Getting up with a bit of a sigh, Mitsuhide checked to see what water was left in the pot above the hearth after it had been going most of the night. It had certainly boiled down and he couldn鈥檛 risk getting the grainy, salty water from the bottom. Looking around the cabin for two cups he took some herbs from their travel bag and used a ladle from inside the cabin to scoop the top water into two cups. 鈥淭he snow stopped but we should wait for the horse to wake up and the temperature to go up before we travel again. I still worry about you having a cold.鈥澛 he said as he waited on the tea to steep. 聽 As Mai moved to get two sweet potatoes from their travel bag the pair would have a small tea and potato breakfast together. It would be a few hours of letting the food settle and taking care of morning rituals before they would get ready to travel again. While they had added a few hours to their trip they would eventually reach Masamune鈥檚 castle only a day behind schedule. While the entire trip had been wonderful since she got to travel with Mitsuhide, that particular night in the cabin would forever hold a place in Mai鈥檚 heart. A cute, intimate night with the real him meant the world to her. While he would seldom get the chance to talk about it that night would be a fond memory for Mitsuhide as well. -The End-
