Mob is initially resistant at first, as he states he’s already receiving ‘hero training’(really, vigilante work) from the ‘21st century’s greatest psychic hero’(in reality, a quirkless vigilante) Reigen Arataka! also known as Salt Punch Man. Or something like that. Izuku is very concerned for Mob’s well being.
Then Izuku notices that Mob is staring at Tsubomi and says something along the lines of ‘being a pro hero is totally going to impress Tsubomi and make you popular’
and of course Mob immediately is on board with this decision. Much to Reigen’s dismay, Mob begins training with Izuku after school.
On the day of the actual exams, they are placed in different battle arenas. Izuku’s exam is aligned with what happens in canon(he saves Ochako, nearly breaks all his limbs holy shit), while Mob’s goes on to be a bit different.
Mob ends up in class 1C, not because he’s incompetent with his psychic powers, but because during his exam an accident occurs that causes ???% to appear and wipe out everyone on the arena. This includes all other examinees as well as all the battle bots, so while Mob earns a crap ton of combat points, much of this is offset by the negative rescue points he ‘receives’ from knocking out the other combatants.
On the first day of class, rumors go around the school about this super overpowered kid in class 1C that destroyed nearly every bot in their arena.
oh yeah, and most of the kids who are in 1C are in it because of mob. lol
Mob tries to survive UA along with the other esp-quirk kids in his class, Reigen finds himself increasingly in need of Mob’s quirk, Shenanigans ensue.
This is the single best piece of paper that has ever happened to my life (also the best snowbaz crack AU in existence, text below). Thank you to the amazing Lesley aka @fanbows for plotting the greatest card ever! I will never look at Simon Snow’s food obsession the same way again 💕
The Very Hungry Simon Snow
One Sunday afternoon Simon Snow took the train to Watford, he hadn’t eaten all day and he was very hungry! He started to look for some food…
On Monday he ate one full English Breakfast BUT HE WAS STILL HUNGRY!
On Tuesday he ate two roast dinners BUT HE WAS STILL HUNGRY!
On Wednesday he ate three shepherd’s pies BUT HE WAS STILL HUNGRY!
On Thursday he ate four currys and a Samosa BUT HE WAS STILL HUNGRY!
On Friday he ate five million sour cherry scones BUT HE WAS STILL HUNGRY!
On Saturday he ate ALL THE FUCKING MAGIC IN THE UNIVERSE AND 12 CADBURY’S CREME EGGS AND SOME SANDWICHES AND 2 OF EBB’S GOATS AND A KIT KAT AND 30 MINT AERO BARS AND SOME ROAST BEEF AND A BOWL OF POTPOURRI HE THOUGHT WERE FANCY CRISPS. HE HAD A STOMACH ACHE.
The next day was Sunday again and he ate Baz’s face and he felt MUCH BETTER!
This has been sitting in my drafts for a good few weeks now… ^^; I’m still not satisfied with how the next panel looks like– So instead of trying to fix it up like a normal person, I’ve been working on other stuff~ *whistles*
I have completed some of the other panels, but the story can’t continue until the 4th panel is done~ Hey, I just work in mysterious ways! 😂
Ah, I’m just gonna post it as it is now, and I’ll upload the rest at a later date! ;)
Summary: It’s been an unusually mundane week at the Avengers Tower, so Bucky comes up with an idea
Word Count: 1487
Warnings: Literally nothing. Like, your grandma would probably approve. (I did say ‘ass’ once tho. Sorry. Kids these days.)
A/N: This is actually the first fic I ever wrote… it’s just been sitting in my drafts for the past 6 months cos I was too chicken to post it, until now. It’s not groundbreaking or anything, but it makes me giggle and I figured spring is the perfect time to spread cheer. As always, feedback is most welcome
It had been an exhausting week for everyone, though not in the way you were used to. Normally, rough weeks meant one of two things. Either a mission had gone south and every fibre of your being was aching from physical and mental stress, or the mission was a success despite almost getting your ass handed to you several times. This week, your fatigue came from neither of those things.
As you got into your car, the rain started to fall. It was heavy on your windshield, was relentless as you drove. You wanted to enjoy it, but it made you sad.
You drove a little slower, always afraid that your wheels would be too wet from the rain and cause you to spin out. You robotically turned your signal on, looked through your mirrors, and turned down your street. Ignored the voice that wished you’d get into a car accident.
You hoped the boys weren’t home. You quietly prayed to God above that for once they’d be out of the house and away from you. Lately, you’d just felt so ashamed when you were around them. If they knew what you had done, you feared they’d never want you–or at least not like they wanted you before.
You knew their love for you was based on more than just your physical features, but knowing that you were tainted almost made you sick. Having a daily conversation with the boys suddenly became a chore. There were times when you couldn’t sleep, afraid something or someone would come and hurt you.
You just wanted to take another long shower, crawl under the covers, and hope for a better day tomorrow.
You unlocked the door with a heavy sigh once you made it home. You pushed it open. Peeked through.
“Honesty is a bad habit of mine”: Jean’s Honesty in Attack on Titan, Part 1
partial draft of this has been sitting in my documents for a few weeks now, but
today feels like a relatively timely moment to post it because of two things
that have happened recently: Jean’s character song “Rusty Honesty” has been
released and—as @imperfecteclipse informed me!— last Sunday was apparently
national honesty day! So let’s talk about Jean’s most defining trait!
Jean’s attempt to persuade Armin and Reiner to assist him in stalling the Female Titan, Chapter 23.
interview published with the first volume of Attack on Titan in English, Isayama states that Jean is his
favorite character in the series because, “Jean comes right out and says what
he’s thinking, even if it’s something you normally couldn’t say. That’s what I
like about him.” However, many characters within the manga don’t find Jean’s
forthrightness quite as endearing. Shadis, for instance, compares Jean’s
personality to “a drawn sword, which tends to create conflict” (chapter 18) and
Jean himself calls honesty his “bad habit” (chapter 15). It’s a personality
trait—or perhaps we should say personality commitment—with
consequences, often putting him at odds with others because his observations
make them uncomfortable.
find fascinating about Attack on Titan is
that Jean is never, at any point of the narrative, asked to totally give up
this “bad habit”: instead, his honesty—which often takes the form of dissent—is
presented as a potential asset, particularly to his development as a future leader within the Corps. In
the early chapters, his honesty gives way to cynical defeatism and apathy, but
over time he develops it into a tool of productive critique. He never quite
assimilates comfortably into the Survey Corps, working instead to keep them on
their toes. He reminds both the Survey Corps and the reader of the stakes
involved in fighting the titans, wondering what it means to achieve “the
greater good” at such high costs.
trait that, when used to actively question the world order rather than just
passively observe it, makes Jean dangerous. And I’ve decided to talk about it
in two parts, because pulling it apart and looking at in depth has proven to be
quite an undertaking, haha. This part will focus on Jean’s honesty in the early
narrative (and what he means when he terms himself an honest man) and part two will explore how it assists his development as a leader up through the Return to Shiganshina arc.
the case with pretty much all of my Jean metas, this reading of his role in the
series is entirely dependent on the manga.
As I have argued here, the anime’s characterization of Jean is quite
different, which significantly alters his role in the narrative.
