I'll have fic snippets, quotes, a lot of LGBT support and signal boosting, hats, beautiful photos, and a veritable ton of pretty Homestuck things. Oh. And cosplay. Probably a lot of that too.
I have an ask. Feel free to hit it up if you have a question! You can find my fic here on A03.
Classification of fantasy and reality is itself a fantasy that humans created…Life begins when you make a disctinction between yourself and others. From that moment on, the world becomes a stage for the story in which you are the main character. All humans live in a fantasy in which they are the main character. But the world doesn’t recognize you as the main character at all. What nonsense. Everyone lives their entire life tormented by this confusion. There’s only one way out of this hell. To place yourself in a postion that is neither the main character nor a supporting role. In other words, the Author.
Kino’s weapon of choice, “The Cannon” is a custom Colt 1851 Navy London Model revolver. It is described as firing .44 caliber bullets (as opposed to the 1851’s normal .36 caliber bullets) and uses “liquid gunpowder”. Kino is also seen detaching the loading lever from the front of the barrel and using at as a foregrip when using a specialized, high-power round.
Kino’s secondary weapon is a custom Colt Woodsman Match Target referred to as “The Ranger”. It features a threaded barrel for the addition of a sound suppressor, and a laser sight has been built into the weighted compensator. Kino keeps it in an IPSC holster behind her back.
Kino carries a ballistic knife capable of firing .22 caliber rounds out of the grip. She appears to have replaced one of the barrels with a laser pointer.
Hermes: “The most important thing for a traveler is decisiveness. That holds true for both rookie and veteran travelers. Am I wrong?” Kino: “The most important thing for a traveler is what saves the traveler after struggling to the bitter end.” Hermes: “What’s that?” Kino: “That’s luck”

This AMV introduced me to both Modest Mouse and Kino no Tabi - one of my favorite bands, one of my Favorite Anime Series. Also? A fantastic AMV on its own right - the timing and use of the double frame as a device is really well done.
