If any reader hasn’t figured it out by now, I have a thing for crossovers. So, as I was washing my snakes (hey, I’m putting them in my hair, they get washed first), my bunnies were poking Medusa as one of the Ultimate Death Glares, and chewing over how many characters I’m fond of who employ them.
Because seriously. Death glares are a common anime Trope, in everything from Parasyte to Gundam Wing to even the sometimes-fluffiness that is Sailor Moon. It’d probably be a shorter list to name animes that don’t have a Death Glare in them.
…I’m trying to think of one, give me time….
Well, as I was leaving the snakes to soak in water for their first rinse, I went through a pile of papers to see what I could sort out/ get rid of / move up into active pile of currently-working-on. And… I found an old image-bunny. Which is my shorthand for “this idea would make a really awesome fanart, but I suck at drawing, so I’ll write it down and maybe it’ll be a fanfic later”.
In short, the owner of one of the most dangerous of all Death Glares as a medusa. A male medusa.
Picture Genjyo Sanzo with a golden armlet of Meretseger and golden Egyptian cobras in his hair.
…There is a Buddhist hell, and I’m probably gonna visit it.
Now, where are my colored pencils so I can scribble a sutra for the costume….
