Detective Conan ep 704: The Steam Train Murder Case with *Real Plot*

Ramblings and a means to jot down the SUDDEN SHIT LOAD OF PLOT THAT SUDDENLY HAPPENED OH MY GOSH

But first, WHAT THE HOLY HELL I’m in the 700s!! How have I come this far in DC and HOW are there less than 200 episodes until I’m caught up?! I know I said at some point I’d catch up, but but it was supposed to be some point!! I wasn’t expecting to ACTUALLY get there so soon!

I have however been distracting myself with the movies a bit and trying to obsess over other tv shows but but I fell back into it today

AND THE AMOUNT OF REAL PLOT I GOT WOW

[Spoiler Alert!]

So ever since Bourbon was introduced as the mysterious aide to Vermouth, I was convinced it was Subaru-san untiiiiil I realised that that’s far too obvious. The show was obviously trying to lead the audience to that conclusion. So they’d have to plot twist it, and he’s actually a good guy. Some kind of good guy. I hadn’t figured out what they’d do with him since they’d already had Jodie-sensei go from suspicious foreigner to FBI agent good guy. And they also had Akai-san go from actual CIA agent to undercover Organisation member and back to CIA agent and….dead. So what was left?

I wasn’t sure, but Subaru was definitely not a villain. So who was then? In all the ops recently (op 35-36) they’ve been playing up Sera, Subaru, and Amuro as the three suspects to Bourbon. It isn’t Subaru. It also isn’t Sera- she’s way too much of a main good guy character to be evil- plus her eyes. She’s definitely Akai’s sister or some such relative. AND THAT LEAVES US WITH ONE BLONDIE TO DEAL WITH.

Which is why Amuro-kun, Mr. Let-me-be-your-apprentice-even-though-I’m-such-a-great-detect0ve-already-Sleeping-Tantei-san~, is our Bourbon.

This mystery on the train revealed just that- but wait, there’s more! Like the whole good guy bit with Subaru-san. I think they just lead us, the audience, to suspect that he’s actually Akai-san. IF THAT’S TRUE I’LL BE SO HAPPY. It’ll mean he’s not dead after all ❤

And then we can watch Sera beat up her beloved brother so lovingly for putting her through such shit ❤ Yay yay~

Then there’s also some tiny details that deserve to be acknowleged along with Shiinchi’s master plan to trick the organisation that he pulled off to save Haibara.

First of all, the whole bit about how Vermouth hadn’t revealed to the rest of the org that Sherry/Shiho and Shiinchi had shrunk to their kid forms. Which makes sense, sort of,.but also makes me feel like that causes inconsistencies at some points in the show…I don’t know if I’m just being paranoid and don’t have enough faith in the show to have successfully carried that fact out throughout 700+ episodes, but it also seems to put some near-death encounters with the org into suspicion, but I can’t think of any specific instances. It’s just a gut feeling I have. Oh well.

Secondly, let’s look at the fact that KAITO KID WAS THE SPECIAL STARRING GUEST HECK YES. Although they pulled it off faaaabulously, I’m still a little miffed that they didn’t give the poor guy some more actual Kaito Kid magic screentime with his normal personality 😛 That’d be wonderful~ But having him help in trouncing the organisation is also a total win! 😀

Huwowowowowow this was a good bunch of episodes to watch. I kind of want to get back into DC now, but I don’t have the luxary of hundreds of episodes anymore, so it’s probably time for a break ^_^;

Ah, time to skype my Sharinga polar bear :3

A Zoo, A Library, and Everything Else

I am aware that I haven’t been recording down all my crazy dreams recently, (and there ARE two/three more that are worthy of being put down here, which I hopefully will type out soon) but I had one last night- so let’s gooo~

Hibah and I are on the train. The usual. I’m a little surprised by how normal it is for me to be on a train in my dreams now. Eh, commuter life, you get used to it 😛 Anyways, I nervously bring up to Hibah that we should get off at the Brookfield stop and explore a bit. She’s totally down and admits that she actually wanted to check out information about their zoo for another day. So we hop off the train to this desolate, rundown area that honestly reminded me of our current station with all its construction. There’s only one building there, and it’s pretty huge, and modern looking with mostly glass walls and lots of steal. It’s the Brookfield Library, according to dream-me. There is also one giant green sign for the zoo, and with one shared glance at each other, the two of us decide library first, zoo second, and dash to the doors.

I notice this sign towards the left of the doors and walk up to it to read their hours, but then I get sidetracked by the fact that all the doors look like their locked. Their were a bunch of push/pull doors like in SEL lining the front of the building. Hibah and I tried our luck with many of them individually to no avail, until some guy pushed one open from the inside, and while it was still open, I flew inside. Hibah was equally successful because she found a door which had a broken lock and got in too. Now inside, we were about to approach the reception desk until we realized we didn’t exactly have any questions.

EXPLORING TIIIIIME.

The building looks so much bigger on the inside, and extends to a huge collection of the most magical things on paper to our left where it looks like an absolutely normal, functioning library. Then, behind the desk, it extends to this spiraling, confusing and surprisingly dark way. It looked incredibly interesting and I’m sure dream-me would have tried to go there if she hadn’t noticed what was *right* next to us on the right. There seemed to be this tight spiral staircase that went cliiiiimbing up and up, seemingly to no end. There were also a bunch of ropes hanging down from it, and for some reason, a mini rock climbing path that was about three-quarters of a meter across attached to one side of those spiral stairs. Intrigued, I started climbing this strange wall and got pretty high up. I started to look around for Hibah, but she was only looking at the walls of the room, and instantly I knew what she was doing. “Hibah, there’s a socket there, there, and one up there!” I yelled down, pointing in all the socket locations I had spotted from my height. Clearly, her phone still has no battery even in my dreams xD

Once Hibah decided on the safest located socket for her phone to charge on, the head librarian walked out from behind the desk and noticed us. She then started telling us about all of the features her library had to offer, pointing out their general direction as she went about it. Mind you, I’m still suspended in the sky, but this doesn’t seem to be a problem. She mentioned a “rock tunnel” which Hibah and I excitedly start asking details about. “Does it have digletts in it?!” “Can you rock climb in there?” “Why is there a rock tunnel in a library?” To which she responds, “it separates the knowledge portion of the library from the rock climbing wall. It also helps keep the noise from there away from those looking for peace here.”

Screw peace and quiet, Hibah and I are going rock climbing. Dream-me did text an incredibly jealous and pissed off Qarni about our discovery, especially since their rock climbing wall was famous for being dope as eff. I grab the rope and do some fancy sailor knotting to fictional self-belay myself down, and Hibah is already waiting for me inside this tunnel. I climb down the rung of ladders that remind me of the swimming pool type down a hole in the ground that just sort of appeared as the head librarian had into the rock tunnel below us.

Then I woke up as a very confused person. What a seemingly normal dream.
