Ascot x Zazu - general discussion/appreciation/flail
« on: February 12, 2015, 11:06:01 PM »
Because it keeps coming up a lot right now, let's make a proper thread for it.  But we might need a proper image for it.....

ASCOT AND ZAZU: THE SHIP flail/spam/appreciation thread!

One loves his monsters
The other adores his machines. 
What do they have in common beside green hats? GO!!



Ship Apprecitation Thread Guidelines:
  • Keep content here PG-13. Feel free to leave any smut in Rarabai. You can link to higher-rated stuff, just mark it as such.
  • This is a feel-good thread. If you don't personally ship it you can still post here as long as what you have to say is positive (or at the very least neutral) towards the ship.

I am very happy with myself. >D Because - that's pretty much what happened to me. I thought HAH THAT'S CUTE about the artbook picture with Ascot's hand on Zazu's shoulder and both of them smiling, then started thinking HEH WHAT IF - BECAUSE ZAZU ISN'T GOING TO BE AFRAID OF ASCOT'S FRIENDS (though he will probably spend most of his time asking them if they can turn into giant robots because - Zazu) just CURIOUS and not scared of child geniuses becuase he is one, and - happy, and cheerful, and - ...aw heeeeeelp this works, doesn't it, THIS WORKS?!????!!!!!

..........OKAY NOW I HAVE TO TAKE DOWN AS MANY PEOPLE AS I CAN WITH ME INTO THIS MESS.

XD

Though I have less of the freaking out about sexuality stuff in my version because I sincerely believe Cephiro's going to have more issues with cross-species relationships than same-gender ones (non-human sentient species! If anyone's going to freak out Primera should totally be the issue. XD;;;;;;;;) or any kind of expectiation of hetrosexuality (or even probably binary sex/gender concepts because if form follows will, then people will present as feels right to them without any surgical change, even if that changes through their life - I think it would be a far more fluid concept for them?) and no one seems bemused by Eagle's blatant attachment to Lantis, so I don't think Autozam's got much of an institutional thing  going on - and, well, I think Zazu's been more interested in his machines and engineering than people up to now. XDDDDDDD (Enough he might well go HUH, that's a thing? That's a thing!' at it when he notices, but I... don't think he'd bother stopping to analyse it much.

.....I think Ascot might well go ACK when faced with actual reciprocated feelings from another person, though, because accepting that and the possibility of a relationship and placing that kind of trust and intimacy in another person would probably be frightening, after being so hurt and alone for so long. But he's got some awesome examples about him~ And Zazu would just be BRIGHT and CHEERFUL at him and 'IT'S OKAY we have time whatever you need, don't be sad, come see this new engine I designed I think I can make a MINIATURE WORKING MODEL OF THE FTO WITH LASERS AND ALL it's going to be awesome!!' and then Ascot would get distracted by, er, trying to stop Zazu make a tiny army of foot-high FTOs because they're cute, yes, but WHY DO THEY NEED WORKING LASERS I DON'T THINK THIS IS A GOOD IDEA-

So - BASICALLY ALL MY FOCUS IS ON THE DORKY SWEETNESS AND ADORABILITY because they would be ADORABLE, they really would~

and their hat collection would be teh BEST >DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

Would they need an entire cupboard for hats? Shelves? Hooks???

Now that there's a proper thread, I'm gonna reply to this here, if that's all right.

As far as the sexuality thing goes, I was thinking more along the lines that neither of them realized they liked guys yet. Like, in Zazu's chibi profile page, it says he's 'currently on the lookout for a girlfriend' and with Ascot, he'd only really been into Umi before. So, you know, not that they saw anything wrong with liking guys, just that they didn't think they did. But totally agree with the 'Cephiro having less expectations of heterosexuality/gender binary' part. One day I'll write/draw that non-binary Ascot and they will be awesome! And adorable! Because Ascot's always adorable!

Anyway, Zazu/Ascot. For a ship name, I was thinking Zas (pronounced like Zazz). Just try it out. "Hey, you like Zas?" "Yeah, I like the Zas. Can't get enough of the Zas." "This fic doesn't have enough Zas."

I own around thirty different hats, mostly in green, so them having ALL THE HATS is absolutely necessary. Lots of hooks, methinks. Better yet, just have all the hats floating around in mid-air like they're in zero g. It's the latest craze in Cephiro interior decorating.  ;D
If your headcanon for Ascot's backstory doesn't make me want to cry, I probably won't believe it.
