“Love everything you do, when you call me really dumb for the stupid things I do.” - Training Wheels

Legit conversation I've had
  • friend:yeah I kind of got this sixth sense, I can feel when my mother is close
  • me:yeah same just that I can feel when people are gay and dating

I’m gonna admit, the way Marinette accidentally compliments Adrien when trying to speak to him made me want to think of her as the kind of person who just can’t insult anyone.

I mean she tells off Chloé plenty but as far as I remember Mari has never resorted to petty jabs at appearance or anything, which gives me the humorous picture of, like, if she ever gets into an altercation with a classmate it’s like

“OH YEAH ALYA WELL YOU…YOU…YOU’RE HAIR IS BEAUTIFUL AND COMPLIMENTS YOUR COMPLEXION WONDERFULLY.”

“KIM YOU BETTER WATCH OUT BECAUSE ALIX IS GONNA BEAT YOU IN THIS DARE EVEN THOUGH YOU’RE BOTH REALLY TALENTED AND I ADMIRE YOU.”

“NINO YOU’RE GONNA BE…BE…SO SUCCESSFUL IN YOUR LIFE DAMN IT.”

Like every time their on teams for gym class everyone’s like “Mari please leave the trash talk to us okay?”

I really like the idea of Keith being born looking mostly Galra, but being proportioned like a human, making him tiny in Galra society. So his dad (Thace) uses druid magic to have his human genes be seen as dominant, and his parents send him to Earth, where he’ll live a better life than within the Empire.

I really don’t think that Arima saying he killed everyone was what caused Kaneki’s memory loss, or even was a major factor in the memory loss. I think it was just what destroyed the last, small piece of himself that Kaneki had held onto after the memory loss.

I think it was already very clear that it was due to both 1) the massive brain damage that he suffered in V14, and 2) his desire to die/have a happy dream. Especially considering that when his memories returned, there was the whole “no more dreaming, no more waking” thing.

What I think happened in Cochlea with Arima was that after his memory loss, Kaneki had clung to his desire to help others. And that was all he had left of himself.

We know that desire was important to him. We know that as a child, he wanted to be like his mother and help others. We know that he lived by the philosophy of being hurt rather than hurting someone. We know that he took burden after burden onto himself in order to help other people. We know that every major sacrfice he made, from leaving Hide to leaving Anteiku to going to the Anteiku raid, he made by telling himself that what he was doing was good for other people, because he wanted to protect them. And after V14, that desire to protect was all he had left.

So when Arima destroyed that last shred of who he was, that last piece of his identity as Kaneki, by telling him that he failed and that there was no one left to protect because everyone was dead – that was when he lost himself completely. That was when he asked who he was.

Because he had nothing left of himself but the desire to protect, because he had already lost everything else. When that was taken away, he had no identity left to cling to.
