Joint Gift: You're Never Alone by ceilonn Joint Gift: You're Never Alone by ceilonn
A birthday gift for my best friend :iconx-bray-x: ~ Happy Birthday you amazingly awesome person! :'D
:icondurararasm: and I decided to work together to make something for her. They wrote the mini-fic to accompany this picture! It's from the ship arc in the manga where Will comes to save the day. He rescues Ron first, guys, just sayin'.

This is the lovely little drabble they wrote:

William T. Spears, as the boss of the Shinigami Dispatch Association, always had the responsibility laid upon his shoulders of the lives of the people that worked beneath him. Every time he sent out someone there was always the possibility that they may never come back. It was one of the many reasons he always refused to bring his emotions into work.
But this specific mission made him feel a prominent heaviness in his chest ever since he sent out the people he was closest to on this mission. It was a cruise ship covered in unfortunate undead souls with rouge Shinigami behind it, it was just a mission he could only give to those he trusted most to undertake. One of those people was a person he had loved for a long time: Ronald Knox.
Still, he was mainly a desk worker now, he could not go and oversee the mission to ensure Ronald’s safety no matter how anxious and agitated he was.
However, when the ship went down that was when William knew he finally had to go. He not only had to retrieve his employees but he was also extremely worried, although it did not show on in his expression when he left.
It was finally revealed upon his face once on the boat and his eyes landed on Ronald’s crumpled form in the icy water. He leaned over the edge of the boat, pulling the younger Shinigami carefully from the water and into the boat, head in William’s lap. The senior Shinigami wiped the wet hair from Ronald’s injured face as his fingers trembling as he tried to keep calm in the current situation. He could not remember the last time a situation had threatened him to lose his calm demeanor to near-panic attack of worry.
William had never seen Ronald look so beat up and managed in all of their years of working together. The younger Shinigami’s face was bruised all over, his cheeks were swollen and his lips were cut up and bleeding. His glasses were broken here and there and his uniform was ripped up where something had cut through it to the skin. With the uniform as ripped and bloody as it was, William could not imagine how Ronald’s body must look like beneath the cloth.
Leaning down he kissed his forehead tenderly as his trembling hand cupped the seemingly unconscious male’s cheek. He was utterly surprised some when he heard:
“Hey there.”
William pulled back, “Knox, you are…” he began.
Ronald finished with, “…still kickin, you’re not gonna be able to get rid of me that easily.”
William didn’t necessarily smile; there wasn’t really a way to clarify what the corners of his mouth did as they tugged upwards. He was concerned and happy as well as a plethora of many other emotions; his inexperienced ability to outwardly express the emotions was not keeping up with how fast his brain was working.
Ronald reached his hand up and cupped William’s cheek with his wet gloved hand, patting his cheek some, “I’ll be fine.”
William cleared his throat some, “Yes, well, of course you will be now that I am here to remedy the situation as always.”
Ronald moved to readjust himself, wincing slightly as he propped himself up.
“Knox do not move, you will only succeed in making your wounds worse,” William scolded but there was a surprising lack of authority behind it. His relief was too great to fully assert his full boss personality towards his underling as he kissed Ronald’s forehead a second time. It did not help that all he noticed the whole time that he was speaking that Ronald’s gaze was locked on one place: his lips.
Ronald kissed him.
William kissed back, tasting the blood and sea salt on Ronald’s lips as they kissed, forcing him back into reality and to place his hand on Ronald’s chest, slowly pushing him back, “cease that immediately, you are injured. Your wounds are bad enough already.”
“So?” Ronald asked.
William quirked his eyebrow in response, “Honestly Knox, I do not know what to do with you sometimes. After your wounds are tended to and we are not in the middle of the freezing ocean, it is only then we can do such intimate things,” his other hand wiping the hair from Ronald’s forehead again with skilled fingers as he avoided the bruises already forming from things he did not even want to know about.
Ronald took in a deep breath, closing his eyes again as William begin to stand back up, and whispered, “Well, let’s get going then so we can warm me up.”
William visibly trembled, it was made very evident by the rocking boat when he stood and looked to Ronald, who seemed to have fallen unconscious again but William watched Ronald’s chest rise and fall from even breathing for a full minute before letting his eyes turn back toward the chilly water.

Okay x-BRAY-x, kohakuaru & motomori. I want you all to listen very carefully(or read asdfghjk). How dare you attack Winxhelina like that?
First of all, I'm quite positive that she's more than aware of how much work it takes to write a fanfic.
Second, is she not allowed to voice her opinion if she thinks that the pairing's not in full bloom in this particular scenery? If your answer is no, put your minds to it for a little while longer and I'll ask you again.
I bet we could all get along and be less grouchy with merely a little more effort.

P.s. I don't really have a personal opinion on RonaldxWill, since I've only seen the anime & not read the manga(so haven't seen too much of Ronald yet). But I think that it's lovely & so is the picture. <3
(and happy birthdaaaay oAo)

motomori Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2013
okay, listen to me very carefully now. going onto almost every single ronwil pic that kohakuaru does and telling him "I don't like wil x ron" is quite disrespectful, and not appreciated as it is very obvious kohakuaru loves this pairing very much as you can see, I nor arthur nor bray go around all the william x grell or any other pairing saying "well I hate grelliam but eh, your art is okay" because at this point (and believe me she has been pointed on this BEFORE) it seems like she is doing nothing else besides purposefully upsetting arthur and then getting away with it by mentioning she likes little details here and there, if you want to be nice about someones art work because you legitimately like it just tell them that, we don't need to know you dont see this pairing working or how you do not like it. it's not that hard to understand now is it?

You'll most likely find an answer or a reply to your points in my previous comments to Arthur or Bray.
Things to do, people to see.(actually it's 2:30 in the morning so basically just wanting to go to bed & couldn't bother to start a whole new argument and provide you with the same points I've given to the 2 other participants.)
Cheerio & thank you.

yeah I read those, which don't really bring up any valid points besides: "LEAVE HELINA ALOOOOONE", her hate on the pairing is not appreciated on Arthur's work and she has been warned about this before, very cute of you to suddenly grow a white knight complex here but just because you think she is just "swell" has nothing to do with the stuff she posted on his art before, this is not a one time thing here and we are all sick of it... again, you'd be squeeking differently if it was a fan posting on YOUR fanfiction for example, saying UGH I hate this pairing... but hey good use of those E's and A's

Having an opinion is fine. She's 100% in line with the whole "freedom of speech" thing. But freedom of speech also means that I'm allowed to say things like "Well, in my opinion, you have a huge nose, and your mother is incredibly fat."

Just because you have the right to say something rude (like demeaning my friend's hard work to the point of making her cry) doesn't mean you fucking should.

She had no critique to offer to better the work. She simply said that it was bad because she didn't like it, compared artists, and upset quite a few people. And frankly, she didn't even apologize even when it was brought to her attention.

She can disagree all she likes, but there's a difference between "Well, I don't like it, and I think it might be better if you tried x or y" and "This sounds stupid and it shouldn't be there."

Well of course you are dear. But you have to remember the subtle line between having an opinion and being plain disrespectful. >3<
Winxhelina didn't say what she said to make an attack towards your friend. She merely thought that the pairing would have worked better in a different scenario. There's no need to burst a blood vessel over something like that. She's just a very opinionated person and that's not something to apologize for.

And oh my. There's a difference between the two? How observant.
Essentially "I think it might be better if you tried a different scenario" was what she said. So I don't really see a problem here.

Except that she was also quick to add "But I guess it can be there." That doesn't sound fucking entitled or self-righteous at all, does it? Like she's giving us special permission not to remove the fic, despite her /almighty/ opinion that it's "not good."

It's also ironic, because her entire issue is that it's loosely based on a cannon scene. Bet you she wouldn't mind the cannoninity of it if it was her precious Grelliam, right? Then she wouldn't have to /grudgingly allow/ it to be there. No no, then it would be just fine.

And again, she did not offer any sort of critique, compared one artist to another, and /has yet to fucking apologize for upsetting multiple people./ Is the little white knight going to do it for her? Going to be nice and sarcastic to the big, bad person who got pissed because someone came to act so self-centered on an artwork that had nothing to do with them?

You act like it's a first-time thing for her. Like we should respect her opinions, despite the fact that her comments basically consist of "Meh, this is okay, but it would be so much better if you did it /my/ way." on /every fucking piece of artwork Arthur makes./

No, fuck that. She wants respect for her opinion? She can earn it by not being such a pushy snob, and that goes for you too, Li'l Miss Passive Aggressive.

I actually wrote an extremely long comment as a response, but accidentally closed the window before I could post it. Maybe 'twas a sign to stop debating about such a silly thing?
Anyways, my main point was that Winxhelina referred to the pairing in this particular scenario by saying "I guess it can be there", not the fic itself.

And well excuse me Princess. While I'm a boy, I do like the sound of that title. Would you mind if I borrowed it for personal usage? Perhaps it could be a warning sign to people who can't deal with sarcastic remarks. That mainly goes for you dear(in case you couldn't tell).

Now, if you'd like to continue this conversation, please do so via private messaging. Wouldn't want to spam this exquisite piece of art, would we now? (sorry Arthur >3<)
If not, ta-ta for now. <3

Well, I wouldn't want him to miss the fun.

You can keep the title, Princess. It fits you pretty well, and frankly, saying "I guess it can be there" in regards to the fic is demeaning no matter what it's applied to; I don't care if it's the setting, or the pairing, or the background, or whatever else. She doesn't get her way just because she thinks she knows best.

Also, a point I'd like to make; I don't care if someone is opinionated. But there's a difference between being opinionated, and just being a flat-out prick. And you know what that difference is?

Opinionated people /apologize./ Or at least make a fucking effort to do so whenever they've offended someone. Helina clearly doesn't see us as being with the time for a simple "I'm sorry, I didn't mean it that way." No, not even that. And I'm willing to bet she's going to go right back to being a pushy know-it-all in no time flat. Just fucking watch.

Hmm, I guess this conversation can be here. And no-no, you're Princess and I'm Lil Miss Passive-Agressive. Get it right ;3;

Again, she does not mean that in a demeaning way. She merely wants you to know that even though she can't see it, other people probably will. Don't get too caught up on the word "I". Winxhelina knows that it's not her decision even if she can't see it; therefore saying that other people will most likely find it better than she does.

And who said she thinks she knows best? She most certainly doesn't think that her opinion is the best one or the only right one. So instead of attacking her like this, learn some respect. She was not being hostile so how dare you do exactly that to her?

I just explained to you how she is opinionated and not a flat-out prick, as you like to put it. She's not apologising from you because she's extremely disheartened by your unbelievably negative reaction. If you can't accept her opinions, how do you expect her to think that you're going to accept her apologies?
And you don't know her. I do. I know for a fact that she's a genuinely nice person. I'm not being biased, I'm just not buying your butt-hurt attitude. You're too busy being a judgemental fool to see this situation otherwise.

How's that for a Lil' Miss Passive-Agressive?

I like how you assume that apologies wouldn't fly here, even though she didn't even try to do so. Rather, the words "Point(s) taken" were the only ones offered; I don't consider that anything short of a handy way to brush off someone's points in order to saunter on your merry way, without a care in sight. To be honest, though, I was pretty shocked to see her so much as acknowledge them, so maybe you're right. Maybe I am expecting a bit much of someone like /her,/ hm?

You'll prove none of that "she's so nice really omfg" shit unless 1) she stops making these sorts of comments on almost all of Arther's work. Honestly, it's never anything but half-assed compliments coupled with "But I want this instead/this person did it better/reminds me of this scene from this fic of this one pairing you hate" from her. /Ever./ 2) Actually acknowledges that we're getting fed up with that nonsense, and that she's really bruised some feelings. Arthur's come to me more than once about it, and now I have another friend who's upset. Helina certainly doesn't seem to give a fuck, though, even though it's been brought to attention before, so I see no reason to respect her "buts" any longer.

I give respect to everyone, until they give me a reason not to. She's given me several to date, and upsetting my friend on what was supposed to be my birthday present? No. /No./ That is NOT okay, and it's not going to fucking fly. You can kiss her ass and dress her up as a saint as you like, but I'm not tolerating this any longer. If she can't handle backbiting when she posts such rude things while refusing to apologize, she shouldn't fucking post at all.

x-BRAY-x does not need to 'accept' her opinions at all, for Helina to have the decency to apologize. The fact is Helina has hurt someone yet again with her comments, (and I say this because I have met many people in this fandom who have encountered her at some point or another and have been rather offended by her comments,) she was out of line once again.

It's too bad she can't discuss this herself. This isn't the first time I've had you come to her aide, presumably when things don't go her way.

It wasn't that far into the zombie arc before I was thinking "So, when is William going to show up and save the day?" XD

Thank you! :D I thought it fit his personality. Like, "So, Knox is hungover and Sutcliffe gotten beaten up by the demon? That's nice. Do they have their completed reports?"

I can see him being a bit more sympathetic to Alan not being able to work because of the Thorns. If it weren't for Grell, he'd have the Thorns too. That's actually one of my headcanon reasons that William doesn't like Grell - he doesn't like the feeling of being indebted to people.

I don't really like it much when people bring their fandoms into canon scenes like that. I mean the small fic I am actually beginning to somewhat like this pairing because it seems plausible in Sticke's fic, but I can't really see it in that scene. But I guess it can be there. Sorry. As for the picture - I really like it. It's beautiful - I love the sky - it looks magical and really beautiful. I love it and it's reflection of the water. I also like how William is kissing his forehead. Looks real cute & loving. It's just beautiful.

honey, giving half baked compliments on how it looks "beautiful" but yeah, you don't like this and that so Ill just give minor stabs to the picture to upset the artist about something he made and put a lot of effort in... don't worry, itll be okay if I say I beginning to "like" the pairing and it does look kinda pretty.

reality check, no one cares about what you dislike about a fandom you're not really into...

and what kind of canon are you talking about, looking at the picture its just ronald and william with water in the background, are you saying that if there wasn't a story that linked it to the campina arc you WOULDN'T have mind it? but that doesn't really fit does it? caus you already said you can see the fic being plausible.

I don't buy anything you got there, I don't buy you actually LIKE ronald and william and I don't buy your compliments which hide your stabs on most of arthur's art...

ughhh so I was just told you upset the fic writer with this comment so I got out of bed and I haven't had any coffee yet and i'm still in a shitty mood from the last grelliam shipper that pissed me off yesterday

but
I don't caaaare if you somewhat like this pairing because of Stickie's fantastical fucking fanfiction. You keep reminding me, and I know, and I give as many fucks as I did the first time. Which is zero fucks.

I'm glad you like my art, of course. thankyou. and i hate to bitch at you for after saying nice things about my art. but um. you don't like people bringing fandom into their scenes. deal with it. its our fandom and we'll do what we like, what makes us happy, very similar to the way that /your/ fandom (Grelliam) is always twisting canon scenes to suit your own tastes. (don't even start me on the OVA)
and we can do so. artistic freedom. not limited to the ships you like.

It's totally plausible because Ronilliam is plausible. Very plausible. and it works, and it's sweet. Everybody here agrees on that. Stop dissing ships, please, you're hurting someone's feelings, and this time it's not mine but those of my friend who wrote it and I'm not cool with that.
She didn't need your permission to put it there. It's there and it's lovely and it works. End of story.

As the recipient of the gift, let me just say that it's really demeaning (to both me and my friends) when you say that half the present isn't good enough. If you don't like it simply because of your own opinion, and you don't have some sort of critique to offer, then please don't be so rude. Contrary to what you may think, my friend actually reads these comments, and saying that sort of thing doesn't really feel nice to her as an artist and a fellow fan. Furthermore, comparing one artist to another, ever, is really just in bad taste.

If you don't like the fic, that's fine, but my friend worked hard on that, and it's not right to basically say "well, I'll grudgingly allow it to be there" when you don't really have anything else to offer on the matter.
