anonymous asked:

Why, if John was a Breath hero, was he still so silly Blood-style connected to sentimental memorabilia, like bunnies from the movies?

because Blood is the opposite of Breath, and everyone deals with their opposites in someway, either inverting into them or healthily integrating them to support their main role

John’s main exposure of his Mage of Blood subrole is during the three year trip with Jade where he gets so cramped up without freedom that he starts over analyzing and over intellectualizing the things he used to love and enjoy in their simple entertainment forms, and tear them to shreds because he starts perceiving those things as stupid and vapid

but otherwise in a healthy state, John enjoys his interests and things he cares about in a very silly, disnconnected way, with not a lot of serious attachment to the things themselves, but to the entertainment they provide to him, that’s an example where his Blood subrole would be healthily supporting his Breath role

The game’s over; time to figure out what to do with his life. Get his shit together and start making smart, rational decisions? Hopefully. Maybe. If he really puts his mind to it.

…Who is he kidding, he’s a fucking disaster.
