All Fitz needed was a friend, so he hallucinated one. 

The team means well, but they can’t be that for him. Not the way he needs. All we’ve seen them do is treat him how he fears he is- “broken.”

But as soon as Mack came along, he treated Fitz like an equal. He worked with Fitz and allowed him to be every bit of the genius that he still is. Already we’re seeing him rely less and less on his hallucinations. 

All Fitz needed was a friend, and he found a real one in Mack. 

Theory on Valley of the End

So we all know that Kishi loves dem parallels.  And I was just thinking what if he draws another one?!? Because look:

image

image

He draws so many parallels/mentions (which I will show later in this rant) between 226 (hospital scene) and 175 (Valley of the End) scenes.  I would not even be surprised if Kishi does another hand fight parallel next chapter LOL. And now he’s even drawing a parallel between 175 (Valley of the End) to current chapters like 693.

image

And can we just appreciate the symbolism Kishi is showing here after 400+ chapters?! Because the Valley of the End is where Sasuke abandoned Naruto, Sakura, Kakashi, (Team 7 love T_T), and Konoha.  But now the Valley of the End is where Sasuke will listen to Naruto’s reasoning (unlike 175) and decide to get his head out of his ass come back to Konoha!!!! Because let’s be real here- the whole manga revolves around Naruto becoming Hokage and chasing Sasuke to come back home- to friendship and love. If Kishi ends it any different, I will go ape shit. Not only is there a “physical” chase for Sasuke, Kishi even makes Naruto have a metaphorical chase after Sasuke in terms of strength:

image

Anyway, time to go back the main topic: there are more mentions of the hospital roof scene during the first Valley of the End scene:

image

image

In these panels, Sasuke even mentions that Kakashi and Sakura aren’t there to stop them.  Yet this time, Sakura and Kakashi are actually there during SasuNaru’s conversation and left behind while Sasuke and Naruto head to the Valley of End. SO I’M PROPOSING WHAT IF SAKURA AND KAKASHI COME IN BETWEEN THE BIG SASUKE VS NARUTO SHOWDOWN JUST LIKE THE HOSPITAL SCENE?! I mean there were so many parallels between the hospital roof and the Valley of the End before!! Why not make this scene another parallel with the current chapter of the Valley of the End???

Because remember Sakura has an affinity for genjutsu. 

Kakashi knows it:

image

Sasuke knows it (I mean we all know that Sasuke cast that genjutsu so Sakura won’t get in the way of the fight but he’s probably banking that his Sharingan/Rinnegan is strong enough to sedate her):

image

So I don’t see why it’s not possible for Sakura to break out of the genjutsu and be like “Oh hell nooo. Sasuke did NOT just knock me out again”  and go after Naruto and Sasuke.  After all, she’s already done watching their backs:

image

image

Anyway, I feel that Kishi drew that SasuSaku parallel to clearly let everybody, including Sasuke, know that Sakura STILL LOVES him and there’s no misunderstandings or anything (Yes ASSes. I’m looking at you).  And Sasuke does not understand how could Sakura still love him after all this time so what’s the perfect way of letting him know?? It’s during this important fight because this will be the defining moment where Sasuke chooses to continue with the path he’s walking or to pick differently (Just like how he chose to walk on the path to Orochimaru rather than stay with Konoha).  And I think Sakura will play a big role along with Naruto in why Sasuke will come back.  So she has to come during the Valley of the End fight >:O  But I know, I know. It’s a big assumption that Sakura will since Kishi likes to shaft Sakura off to the side >:((( and that her love confession may be already Sakura’s part in Sasuke’s return. ARGH.

image

But then again, why is Sakura on the Valley of the End cover when she wasn’t even in that chapter? ;) You tell me.

image

On a side note, there is this reoccurring theme about the Konoha forehead protector or Naruto not being able to land a scratch on Sasuke’s forehead. 

image

But Naruto does scratch it- yet the Konoha forehead protector guarded Sasuke’s forehead and now the scratched protector symbolized that he’s a missing nin:

image

Then Sasuke’s forehead protector drops and represents his abandonment of the village:

image

So maybe since Sasuke doesn’t have a forehead protector anymore, Naruto damages Sasuke’s forehead or something during this fight (NOOOO) and thus why Sasuke has to wear that gangster bandana getup because Kishi doesn’t wanna give anything away (thought this is total crack. I hope it’s not true.):

Eh but that’s off topic ;) thanks for reading!!

remember when Reim died, and then Break fought against the Baskervilles and gave up?

image

now, remember when he was still Kevin, and he found himself in the Abyss, and he NEVER gave up? He screamed and got up even after Alice had stolen his eye?

image

See how much he’s /changed/. Before, he wouldn’t have given up like that. Yes, when he fought against the Baskervilles his body was weak and everything. right there, he wasn’t really himself (or maybe he was himself more than he had ever been?), but why? Because Reim was dead! Reim was dead, that was the only thing in Break’s mind. “I’m sorry, Reim”, that’s what he thought, he didn’t care about anything else!!

Iron Thunder (Did I just make up a ship name? Fuck yeah)

Anyone who bore witness to Tony and Thor’s first meeting (So, Steve) might say that the two got off to a rocky start. Sure, Tony basically dive bombed the God, and Thor sent the tin man flying through the forest before electrocuting him (Which was fine by Tony. He didn’t have to recharge his suit for days after that) and then afterwards Tony, because he is Tony Stark, went out of his way to touch Thor after being told not to
