Patchwork Lab
The roleplay blog of the Patchwork Professor
This is where you will find all things related to my portrayal of Dr. Franken Stein from Soul Eater. Before you initiate any kind of roleplay with me, please read my rules, which you will find in the links above. If you've read my rules and are still interested in roleplaying with me, send me a message through the contact link above and I'll see what I can do.

Headcanons About Stein:

I don’t have nearly as many headcanons about Stein as you would think a Stein roleplayer would have. I think Stein’s parents were terrified of him and that he was sent to the DWMA as a kind of permanent boarding school student, but other than that, I have relatively few solid ones. The headcanon I am most proud of is about Stein’s name not being the one he was given at birth. You can find that here.  

What I Think About Stein: 

The Positives: I think Stein is a very noble character. He manages to be a reliable teacher for his students despite his mental difficulties. He trains hard to keep his body and mind in shape despite his penchant for cigarettes and madness. He’s also a very fun character. I really like his sense of humor, which is a mix of absurdity and slapstick. 

The Negatives: In the beginning of the series, Stein has a lot of fear inside of him. I think that he holds himself back from a lot of his emotions because he’s afraid that they’ll lead him towards madness. I also think he starts out with a lack of belief in himself. Finally, I think he makes himself follow Lord Death for the wrong reasons. In his battle with Medusa, he says that he wants to tear things apart without feeling like a heretic. This shows that Stein is afraid of his guilty conscience more than he is true to himself. Fortunately, by the end of the series, he seems to come to terms with Order and his own autonomy. 

Favorite Stein Moments:

It’s really hard to pick one moment. His interactions with Medusa are all really enjoyable. I also really like seeing him develop through the pain and madness of the Internal Investigations chapters. And yes, I even like how things turn out for him at the end of the manga. He finally seems comfortable with himself and that’s all I could ever ask for the character.

One of my favorite quotes from Stein is said towards the end of the manga. 

"Look, I won’t fall into insanity. I have you, and I have Marie, and I have my students, and I have everyone at Shibusen… But at the same time, the real me is never going to change… I’m never going to stop being irritating or gloomy, so I guess you’ll just have to keep putting up with me."

Don’t worry, Stein. I think your friends and students are quite willing to put up with you for a long time.

Weird Science


Medusa started, alarmed that Stein was going along with Deathscythe’s antics—and dragging her into them! And because Deathscythe had already been making such a scene, she could hear chuckles and murmurs of her name from behind her at the main table. If she didn’t shut this down, and quickly, she would be forced into action.

And was Stein merely going along with Deathscythe’s antics? She knew he had a ridiculous side to him—everyone at this school seemed to—but there was something in the way he’d laughed that had an unwholesome edge. 

Even so, he was not as prone to harassment as Deathscythe was, so he would be easy to shake off. Medusa pressed one hand against her chest and waved the other in front of her face, letting a blush come to her face (for all that would do in a room lit as dimly as this one). With a vapid giggle, she said, “Oh, I really couldn’t. I don’t sing, least of all in public.” 

"Oh, nonsense; I’m sure you’re a lovely singer. Here, I’ll sing with you. We can be a duet," said Stein, taking one of Medusa’s arms in an overly-friendly vice grip and extracting her from her seat. He could already feel the other DWMA employees’ attentions shifting towards the two of them. Perfect.

What Kind of Pokemon Are You?- Soul Eater Edition (Part 10)

((With the release of Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire approaching, it’s time to get back into the Soul Eater/Pokemon swing!))

((Today’s Soul Eater-character-turned-Pokemon-trainer is the one…the only…EXCALIBUR!))

((What Pokemon has the nobility and sense of grandeur to be the partner of the Heavenly Sword? None other than Snivy, the Grass Snake Pokemon.))

((Not only do the two creatures look related, which would please the egotistical Excalibur, but Snivy’s cool and collected demeanor would keep it from being fazed by Excalibur’s constant obnoxiousness. I can imagine Excalibur going on and on about his 12th-century adventures to everyone’s chagrin except for Snivy’s.))

((For more Pokemon and Soul Eater crossover fun, check out the Pokemon section of my blog here.))

The Calm Before the Storm


Crona was walking through the streets, panic high within them.  They had just done something, something that would lead to serious consequences when their new friends found out.  They had given Marie one of Medusa’s snakes, and while they didn’t know what it would do exactly, they were unable to sleep from their racing thoughts and guilt.

I shouldn’t have done that.  Why did I do something like that?  Why didn’t I just say no? Why?

They kept walking until they ended up in an alley.  While they weren’t fond of dark, creepy places at night, they were happy to have a place somewhere away from people where they could collect their thoughts.  Maybe calm down.  Maybe…  Oh,who were they kidding?  It was impossible to be calm now!

But they weren’t alone.

Their eyes fell upon the form of one of their professors.  ”P… Professor Stein?  What are you doing out here at this time of night?”  Stepping out to smoke was one thing, but why here?

Stein looked up from his seat by the dumpster and smiled, his arms hanging loosely at his sides as if he were a broken puppet. A visit from Medusa’s child. How fitting.  

"Oh, hello, Crona. You must be lost. Are you looking for your mother? She might be a little hard to find. Spirit never did manage to consume her soul. "

He snickered, but then the cigarette between his lips wavered and he had to steady it with a hand. Spirit would be mad at him for smoking, too. They all would.

Goodbye Future (Part 2)

"I fought a war with my counterfeit."


"I fought it alone."


"And every moment brought a feeling of fear to me. Near to me."


"A million blows couldn’t conquer it."


"So I took it along."


"And now these moments are becoming so dear to me. Real to me."
