SEN SEN!! I saw on your personal account that you probably study mythology or something so uhhh Shiratorizawa boys + Mirai in comparison to Greek heroes or figures??

Sen: Not only am I happy that you follow my @sen-000​ account but the fact that you’d ask something like this makes me so overjoyed. I discussed a lot of this with @hassans-love​ ages ago and some of my opinions changed but yo guys go give ‘em a follow. The people of ancient Greek myths are all assholes and it was really hard to pair them but hey whatever.


Achilles: Thought to be the greatest warrior, Achilles/Ushijima were deemed to be invincible by others. The both live by strict codes but they’re both overly proud and stubborn individuals: their pride causes them to take matters into their own hands when better things could have been done.


Patroclus: I’ll be damned if I don’t say he’s Patroclus. The both of them are role models or at least very close to Achilles/Ushijima: Achilles and Patroclus’ ashes are said to be buried together but at least on screen we see Ushijima and Reon being near each other a lot. 


Meleager: As Meleager was known as second only to Hercules, Semi is treated as second to Shirabu despite his amazing abilities. Noble and brave, the two had relatively peaceful lives and were content until the entrance of something else to put them in their place.


Tiresias: Tendou is very far from a heroic figure but his guesses are strangely accurate for something that shouldn’t be work. Almost prophetic as well. They aren’t particularly well liked figured either since their guesses/prophecies always end up with someone suffering but oh well.


Icarus: Hubris is both Goshiki and Icarus’ fatal flaw. They both get easily fired up though one… quite literally (melting but yknow) Goshiki is young and has a lot of potential but it’s still too early for this kid to be called the ace right now, so maybe with proper guidance he’ll get there.


Odysseus: As if this isn’t a stretch enough, Shirabu is acknowledged to have great wits. Though, both do have an immense amount of pride and will beat themselves up over their mistakes a lot as well. They’re both a bit hot headed to an extent as well.


Harpocrates: Harp’s the god that’s just kinda there. The god of silence and there really isn’t that much to say about him. Kinda like Kawanishi; isn’t the most astounding person and we don’t know much about them but like… they’re there.


Antigone: Both come across aggressive, at least through their interpretations, but care deeply for those who suffer. Their actions are driven by ‘selflessness’, sacrificing themselves for others (Antigone’s being her life and Yamagata’s being his opportunity to cry after the KRS/STZ match)


Atlanta: Being the only girl among guys yet still being respected is a great feat. The girls keep their boys in line without too much trouble with their natural athletic ability and don’t seek out the approval of guys, finding no need to get together with anyone.

PAKISTAN. Sehwan. February 17, 2017. A baby bottle lies on the blood-stained floor at the 13th century Muslim Sufi shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar a day after a bomb attack in the town in Sindh province. Pakistan launched a nationwide security crackdown Friday, officials said, after a bomb ripped through the crowded Sufi shrine, killing at least 88 people including 20 children and wounding hundreds. ISIS claimed responsibility.

“[Alexandre Bissonnette] didn't wake up in the morning and say, 'Hey guys, instead of going to have a picnic or watching the Canadiens, I will go kill some people in the mosque.' It doesn't happen that way. Day after day, week after week, month after month, certain politicians unfortunately, and certain reporters unfortunately, and certain media were poisoning our atmosphere.”
