“What do you like?”
“Music. Numbers. Equations. They’re not like words. They … they don’t get mixed up.”
“If only you could talk to girls in equations.”
There was a long silence, and then, eyes trained on the notch they’d created in the link, Wylan said, “Just girls?”
Jesper restrained a grin. “No. Not just girls.”
i accidentally ended up with a bunch of thoughts for a superhero au who wants to add to these ideas
kanan’s an ordinary college student who works part time coffee barista except yeah okay she isn’t actually Ordinary considering she can control the temperature i.e. anything she touches, she can raise or lower its temperature
she just wants to have a normal life tho so she keeps her powers a secret and just uses them for mundane things (e.g. keeping her hoodie a wonderful toasty warm during winter, maintaining her drinks like coffee and hot choco at the perfect drinking temperature, never letting her ice cream turn into a sad puddle)
riko’s the first one to discover kanan’s powers and after a bunch of plot things happening, she introduces kanan to the gang
riko’s powers involve some sort of auditory caused synesthesia? i.e. emotional manipulation using the music she plays. it can also, to some extent, induce hallucinations to the hearer
dia can manipulate the time of animate things. ruby can also manipulate time but she can only use it for inanimate objects. the easiest and most often thing they use their powers for is to stop time but the aoe affects how much strain it is and how long they can hold it
the kurosawas cant reverse time tho
(dia has a sword)
mari claims to be a teleporter.
technically she can teleport? but her powers are actually closer to the category of time traveling? its limited to her ‘personal time’ tho and rather than moving temporally, she moves spatially i.e. as long as she’s been in that place before, she can go back to it. hence the pseudo-teleportation
also mari isnt actually part of the ‘good guys gang’
she’s that mysterious super who seems to have questionable morals and just randomly shows up, sometimes to help kanan + co, sometimes to actually hinder them. nobody’s actually sure who she is and what her real goals are
spoilers but mari’s “mundane identity” is that she’s part of the board of directors(?) to a really powerful tech company who’s very anti-people with powers
idk about the others yet but chika’s probably a furry can talk to animals maybe
Hi my name is Hinata Sunshine Little Crow Giant and I have fluffy sunshine orange hair (that’s how I got my name) with ginger streaks and sweat dripping tips because i volleyball so much that reaches my mid-back and radiant yellow eyes like sunshine tears and a lot of people tell me I sound like Ayumu Murase (AN: if u don’t know who that is get da hell out of here!). I’m not related to the Little Giant but I wish I was because he’s a major fucking hottie. I’m a middle blocker but my height is super short and I suck at blocking. I have pale white skin. I’m also gonna be an ace, and I go to a high school called Karasuno in Japan where I’m in the first year (I’m sixteen). I’m a middle blocker (in case you couldn’t tell) and I wear mostly black. I love volleyball uniforms and I wear all my clothes with them. For example today I was wearing a black and orange volleyball shirt with matching sweatshirt below it and black and orange volleyball shorts, white trainers and white socks. I was wearing black wing eyeliner (because I’m a crow!). I was walking outside Karasuno. It was snowing and raining so there was no sun, which I was very unhappy about. Oikawa stared at me. I put up my middle finger at him
“Hey Hinata!” shouted a voice. I looked up. It was…. Kageyama Tobio!
“What’s up Kageyama?” I asked.
“Nothing.” he said shyly.
But then, I heard my team call me and I had to go away.
Uh, this is my first ever story. Please tell me if it’s good. p.s. thanks to Applepi5 for editing my story. And stupid shiratorizawa stop flaming my story!

Why the Movie Industry Shouldn’t Villainize Mental Illness
In 1973, when the book “Sybil” was released, the world was captivated by a patient diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder (DID), known back then as multiple personalities. The story was so strange and unique that it was made into a television movie in 1976, and again in 2007. The good news is that Sybil opened the dialogue on a little understood mental illness. The bad news is that decades later, the portrayal remains the same: misunderstood and sometimes villainized.
Fast forward to 2015. I first met Sunshine when she registered under the name Denise Purcell to share her story about losing a daughter in Grief Diaries. Although her story was sad, I was struck by her writing. Between the lines I found a lovely, compassionate, and extremely talented soul. We bonded immediately. Months later, Sunshine shared with me that there are multiple alters—seventeen parts—who reside within Denise. I knew her condition stemmed from childhood trauma, but that was all and I left it at that. To me, Sunshine hadn’t changed since revealing her condition. She was still Sunshine, and I adored her.
It’s been decades since Sybil was released, and yet those who live with DID continue to face deep societal stigma. They’re often accused of being crazy or fake, or just downright feared. I hope today’s Grief Diaries release will change that.
Now available on Amazon, Grief Diaries: Through the Eyes of DID features the stories of 17 men and women who live with dissociative identity disorder. Each one has faced tremendous challenges throughout life with little support and sparse resources, yet each courageously bares all in the book in the hopes of helping others like them feel less alone, and for the rest of us to better understand.
In light of the new movie coming out next week featuring a guy with 23 personalities who terrorizes 3 girls, the writers understand that bravely sharing their private stories puts them at risk for more judgment, and yet they share anyway to help make a difference.
The book also highlights that although DID is an illness caused by severe trauma, people who live with DID are so much more than just their diagnosis. One writer is an award-winning musician. One is the artist who designed the book’s cover, has had her work shown in galleries, and has her own adult coloring book coming out next week. Two host their own episodes on YouTube. Two are published authors, and many are writers.
Many might say that next week’s movie is just that: a movie. Nothing more. But the truth is that villainizing any mental illness keeps societal beliefs firmly rooted in falsehood. The damage done is invisible yet vast. I worked with the writers for a year on this book; did I fear them at any point? No. I fear sane people with guns far more. Are the mentally ill insane? No again. They are people like you and me who live with a highly misunderstood and deeply stigmatized condition, and far too few resources at their fingertips.
Just when they think they’re finding their footing, the media once again villainizes them.
“My name is Sunshine, my birth name is Denise. I have dissociative identity disorder. We are seventeen personalities living in one body. There is sadness and a lot of love in this book.” -Sunshine Purcell
A big shout-out goes to the 17 writers who courageously shared their stories and what it’s like to live with multiple alters, parts, identities and personalities sharing one body. May this book bring comfort to all who walk your path and wear your shoes, and help the rest of us to open our hearts to your journeys.
