end diseases

So a lot of people are interested in a Hanahaki AU

And that just makes me ridiculously happy. A few people have messaged me for more, and so here’s Part 2

So while Lance is waking up in the hospital after the surgery, Keith is just silently fuming with the others while they eat. Everyone’s avoiding the elephant in the room. Who was Lance in love with? 

Keith didn’t know who she was, but there was a girl out there who almost killed Lance because she was too blind to how amazing he is and made him go through the pain of an unrequited love that almost killed him.

Then Shiro texts and says Lance is awake and Keith almost leaves everyone at the McDonald’s because they were taking too long to get in the damn car but they arrive at the hospital and everyone floods into Lance’s room just as the doctors leaving. Everyone’s hugging and crying and just making a mess of themselves because they’re so happy Lance is ok.

Then Lance looks over at Keith 

And his smile dims a bit and he looks confused. “Uh, who are you?”

Everyone in the room freezes. Keith can’t breath. He tells Lance to stop joking around because he’s not funny, but Lance is genuinely confused and a little annoyed because this complete stranger just waltzed into his hospital room and now he’s insulting him? Fuck him… who ever he is.

Thats when the reality of the situation starts to hit Keith. It was him. Lance was in love with him. His world was falling apart.

“Why didn’t you tell me?! You idiot, why didn’t you tell me?!” Shiro has to drag him out of the room to calm down but he can’t calm down because Lance was in love with him and he broke his heart.

Inside the hospital room, everyones trying to get over their shock and explain to Lance that no, Keith wasn’t a stranger. They ask if he can remember anything about Keith, but nothings there. He can remember getting into a fight on the first day of school with …. someone. He can remember getting birthday gifts, but can’t remember giving them to anyone. He can remember an empty space between Shiro and Lance, just enough for another person to stand. Keith’s just became an empty space or a blurry face in his memory.

Once outside the hospital Keith makes a confession to Shiro. He’s at the first stage of Hanahaki himself and takes medication to keep the flowers from blooming. He’s been in love with Lance for the past year but it was unrequited. And now Lance doesn’t even remember him.

(Now he needs to start over and make Lance fall for him one more time)

(Part 1)

Let’s not forget that Eijun Sawamura

  • has pitched for 2 full games.

  • is quite competent with infield defense and pick-offs.

  • specializes in throwing idiosyncratic pitches.   

  • has an arsenal of pitches that includes a 4-Seam Fastball, 2-Seam Fastball, Cutter, Changeup, and Splitter.

  • has an unorthodox pitching form that doesn’t allow the batter to see the release point of the pitch, which consequently messes up the batter’s timing. 

  • is also surprisingly level-headed in critical situations.  He is always able to pull off amazing pitches in a pinch, which never fails to amaze Miyuki.

He has come a long way since he began his high school career in Seido. He’s undeniably one of the key players of the team and has improved tremendously. ヾ(:3ノシヾ)

Sick prompt #1

Written for @alisa-otaku and her Hanahaki disease bad ending prompt. Unfortunately it’s unfinished since I ended up passing out and dropping my ipad on my face. Still, I wanted to give you what I got done so you wouldn’t be waiting forever for something I may or may not return to.


It was a month after Hanzo’s arrival to the Watchpoint that he met the man who would kill him.

“There you are, luv!”

Hanzo could scarcely blink before Lena was in front of him, vibrating with energy as she grabbed hold of his arm, leading him forcefully down the hall. His bow was on his back, dressed casually for his morning training session with Zarya. “Miss Oxton-”

“Lena, sweetie.” It was a daily argument between them.

“Lena, then. Where are you taking me?”

“Jesse just arrived! You absolutely have to meet him! Oh you’ll just go mad!”

It took a while but he was beginning to understand her strange english colloquialisms. Better then he could a month ago, of course, when he was shocked to realize that he was not as fluent in english as he had first believed.

“Jesse is a previous member, I assume?”

“Gotcha in one! He was real tight with Genji back in the day. He musta told you about ‘im, right? Jesse McCree. The ol’ gunslinger!”

The name sounds familiar, but…

“He’s an honest to God cowboy!”

“Oh!” Genji had mentioned McCree many times. The rugged black ops agent with a winning smile who saved his life more times then he cared to recall. He’d been hopefully optimistic that the cowboy would eventually answer the recall. “A shame Genji will not be here to greet him.”

“He’ll be back from Nepal in no time!” Lena assures him, keeping her iron grip on his arm as they exit out onto the launchpad. Hanzo can just see a dropship in the distance flying toward them. “Sides, you and I’ll make him feel welcome enough for the whole team!”

It takes the ship almost no time to arrive, Lena carefully pulling them both back out of harm’s way as Athena carefully glides the ship to a stop. The door’s barely dropped open before Lena is screaming with joy and running to the ship, throwing her arms around the new arrival before he can even step out of the ship.


“Woah there!”

The man’s voice is deep, rumbling with a warmth that makes Hanzo stand straight at attention. McCree is his opposite in every way, beard untrimmed and wild, hair and clothing still dusty and in need of a good washing. Speaking of his clothes, he’s dressed like he’s stepped right out of an old western, complete with chaps and boots with spurs (Spurs!). Something shiny on his belt catches Hanzo’s eyes, pulling them toward the godawful belt buckle and then to the metal replacement for the man’s hand. The hand Lena is studying with a mix of awe and horror while McCree chuckles at her.

“Would you believe me if I said it wasn’t my fault?”

“Mercy’s going to give you a right earful!”

“Oh god, the doc’s already back? Why didn’t you warn me!”

“You’re a lucky goat. She’s off in Nepal with Genji to help with the relief work there. Should be back soon though.”

It’s as if mentioning Genji’s name at all reminds Lena of Hanzo’s presence and she blinks to him, pulling him over to McCree with a grin. “Oh! This here’s Hanzo!”

Hanzo dips into a low bow once Lena lets go of his hand. “Shimada Hanzo, at your service. It is an honour to meet a hero of the original Overwatch.”

He’s greeted by a low whistle, looking up to find McCree holding his hat to his chest, lips pursed and eyebrows raised high. “Well, howdy there… The name’s McCree, Jesse McCree… and ain’t ya just an angel fell from heaven.”

The confusion must be evident on Hanzo’s face because Lena has to cover the grin on her face with her hands. She blinks back to Jesse’s face and stuffs his hat back onto his head. “You haven’t changed at all!”

“What! What I do!”

“You’ve been here all of five seconds and you’re already flirting up a storm!”

“He caught me off guard, aight?” He pushes Lena away playfully before fixing his hat and shooting Hanzo a smile. “So, Shimada, was it? Any relation to ol’ Genji Shimada?”

“My brother.” He responds carefully, watching Jesse’s face for any reaction.

There is none. Instead, he’s greeted by a hand held out for him to grab. “Well, it’s a pleasure to meet ya, Hanzo.”

He pronounces it terribly but Hanzo finds it amusing rather than annoying. “Likewise.”

“How about I go get settled in and then you and I meet up later tonight to get to know each other better over some drinks?”

They both ignore Lena’s guffaw, and her following squeal of delight as Hanzo smiles in response. “I look forward to it.”

They fall into bed together that same evening, and Hanzo wakes up in bed alone.

I remember growing up and hearing the topic of drugs. Always being warned. We could over dose, or get diseases or end up looking 50 when we’re 30. But nobody ever fucking warns us about the actual scary parts. They don’t tell you about lying in bed at 3am because you honestly can’t sleep. And you’re alone. And you can’t stop crying. And you feel like you have this monster inside of your body just trying to rip itself out. They never tell you that feinding for dope actually isn’t the worst thing. The worst thing is that you can no longer be “normal”. You’re not that girl who can have a few beers at the party and enjoy herself. You’re the girl who is drowning herself in alcohol while figuring out ways that she can rationalize ditching all her “normal” friends to go and pick up meth or oxy or just anything because she simply cannot live another minute inside of her own skin when she’s sober. They never fucking tell you that.
voiceless #2

This ending won the poll:

Hanahaki Disease GOOD ending - Lance has feelings for Keef. However, he can’t say anything because his voice is gone. But everything turns out fine and Lance’s voice is back :)

here’s part 1

And here is part 2! whoops it’s a lot longer and langstier than i originally intended

WARNING: yup there’s still LOTS of langst even if the ending is good, best prepare yourself

“Shut up, you stupid boy. I ought to get rid of your whiny voice.” Lotor snapped before grinning with realization. “Perhaps I should.”

Lance’s eyes widened. No, he can’t do that, it’s all I have, it’s all I have from Earth, it’s all I am, I’m useless if I’m voiceless, please, no, anything but that-

But Lance couldn’t say anything. He couldn’t talk, god, he couldn’t breathe, he was choking. He couldn’t do this to Lance, he couldn’t take his voice away. Lance desperately grasped at his throat with his sweaty, chained, hands. No, no, no, no… 

“Foolish human, I haven’t even done anything. You really are pathetic,” Lotor spat, looking down at Lance’s trembling, crumpled form as if Lance was nothing more than a pesky piece of gum on the bottom of his shoe.

“N-no-” Lance’s breathing was labored and forced. “-don’t, please-” Lance’s voice cracked, and it sounded so broken and weak.

“Reduced to begging at my feet?” Lotor cackled, voice shrill and unforgiving. “How fun this will be. Tell me, little paladin, all of your secrets.”

Lotor was approaching, looming over Lance, and he couldn’t do anything. He was helpless to whatever sick thing Lotor had in plan for him.

I have no idea if anyone has tried calling Yoosung during the “drink chocolate milk or you die” disease, but if you haven’t; you’re missing out.

EDIT: I’m seeing comments about redoing Yoosung’s route just for this phonecall-You dont have to. This is during Day 4 and you dont have to be on Yoosung’s side to get this phonecall. Just call him after Seven tells him via chat that he cant drink coffee.

God I support this (I’m weeb trash)

Plus, I’m not making them significant others. Hanahaki is a one-sided love (sorry !!).

Joseph: Joseph wouldn’t believe his eyes at first, and he would check their mouth for a stash of flowers under their tongue. Then he’d believe them. While he wouldn’t leave his wife for them, he would support them getting surgery. He might even donate some money so they can get it taken care of. They can still remain friends.

Brian: He probably didn’t even notice that anything was wrong until they started coughing and avoiding him. At first, he probably thought that they were just sick, so he left them alone. He probably found out by complete accident, going to check on them and then finding the bloody flower petals, them having to explain it to them. Brian would be a bit freaked out because of the flowers, but at the same time he’s very flattered. He’d try to support them the best he can before the surgery, as he isn’t sure whether or not he’ll be able to return the feelings. He probably gets really flustered when they tell him that the flowers suddenly stopped.

Craig: Craig would feel bad that they have the flower issue, and feels a bit bad it’s because they like him. He tried his best to support them until the surgery, but he still didn’t feel that much, and that the flowers were getting worse. After they get the surgery, Craig finds he’s falling a bit for them a little too late. It broke his heart to see how their attitude changed towards him after the surgery, but they continued to stay friends.

Mat: Mat gets really flustered and doesn’t know what to do. He might even force himself a bit to go on dates with them to help the disease, and maybe it might work out on his end too to get a signif. In the end, the disease is gone and they’re happy together.

Hugo: Hugo needs a hot minute to look up Hanahaki and it’s origins to understand it better. He gets blushy after the confession, and decides to make it work. He takes them out on dates to his favorite place, and eventually the flowers stop. They’re both happy and his new signif is glad that they no longer have flowers pouring out of their mouth.

Damien: He probably knew that something was up the moment that they had started coughing. He’d try taking care of them, thinking that they were just sick, but he’d always avoid them. He felt a little bad, but found the bloody flower petals outside when they had left. From that day, he started taking care of them and staying by their side, and would even take them out on little dates and go on walks. He was ready for the surgery, but was shocked and a bit flustered when they told him that the petals had stopped. 

Robert: Robert is baffled about the hanahaki thing, and thinks they’re lying to make him feel sorry for them. But, after actual proof of it, he accepts that they’re telling the truth. But then he looks at them another time, and thinks they’re a cryptid. They have to constantly reassure Robert that they’re not until they get the surgery, and they’re still bros afterwards.

~Mod Hugo/Mod Damien



Basically, the Hanahaki Disease is: 

a fictional (emphasis on fictional) disease, often used in fanfictions, where the victim regurgitates and coughs up flower petals when they suffer from unrequited love. The illness can only be cured through surgical removal, however any existing romantic feelings are also removed with the infection.

McCree’s just as surprised as anyone else when he starts coughing up small, delicate blue petals. But it’s easy to guess why it happens–there’s only one thing in this world to cause someone to start producing flowers from their lungs, and the way things are, his prognosis isn’t good.

So Jason’s on an interview once, bc he’s Bruce Wayne’s kid and all, and he gets asked about why he thinks what he thinks about Trump and this is what he says:

“Well, before I say anything else, for all of you who are mad that I was shit talking the president, I want to point out that I did the reading, and according to the constitution it’s my right to call Trump a dick because all the first ammendment says it that I can’t threaten his life. I can destroy his self-esteem all I want. But I digress.
“You guys know that Bruce adopted me, took me off the streets. What you don’t know is that before that, I grew up in the worst part of Gotham - Crime Alley. Crime Alley like if you took all the crime in Gotham and Bludhaven, and threw it into one really long alleyway, and there’s still more crime than that. Growing up, my dad was god knows where, and my mom was an addict. I spent more time on the streets than anywhere else. Living in crime alley allowed me to see the worst in humanity. I’d seen people who did unspeakable things, drug dealers on every corner. But the thing is, there weren’t just criminals there. There were kids and teenagers, people barely older or younger than I was, and they were homeless. They were all drug addicts, abuse victims, homeless children and adults,?part of the lgbt community, teen parents, people suffering from mental illnesses, and more. They were my friends. But the way people looked at them was horrible. I saw how they were treated. People would walk by, hurrying down the streets, turning their heads away or spitting at them or making them feel inhuman. It’s the most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen.
"Some of these people didn’t make it. They died of starvation, hypothermia, disease… some ended their own lives. I watched one of them stab themself, because of the way people were treating them. They’d been kicked out of their home, just because they weren’t a straight, cis kid like their parents wanted. It’s so, so messed up. And that’s why I hate Trump. I see the way he looks at, talks to, and talks about LGBT people, women, everyone. I see how racist and horrible he is and he reminds me of the way people treated the Crime Alley kids. How they looked at me differently, because I was basically homeless and because I didn’t have the privilege they do. I don’t understand how people can be so fucking blind. There are people out there who have killed themselves over the way Trump and everyone like him treats them. That’s fucked up. That’s so fucked up. So I am so fucking sorry, Mr. President, if I hurt your feelings here. But I don’t give a SHIT what you think. You’re a total dick, and I hope that someday you’ll realize that, but let’s be honest: you won’t, because you’re too busy throwing hissy fits when you don’t get want you want handed to you on a silver fucking platter. Fuck you. I’m done with this interview.” He walks out after, pissed off and twenty minutes later Red Hood’s killed three more rapists.

(There was half an hour left in the interview, too, and it was being aired live)

China’s embrace of embryo selection raises thorny questions

Getting time with Qiao Jie is not easy. At 7:30 a.m., the line coming out of the fertility centre that she runs blocks the doorway and extends some 80 metres down the street. Inside, about 50 physicians on her team are discussing recent findings, but Qiao, a fertility specialist and president of Peking University Third Hospital in Beijing, is still in an early-morning consult.

When she finally emerges, she jumps to the topic at hand: spreading awareness of preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), a procedure that helps couples undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) to avoid passing on genetic mutations that could cause disease or disability in their children. Qiao typically refuses interview requests, but she’s concerned that people aren’t getting the message about PGD fast enough. “Now, more and more diseases can be stopped — if not immediately, in the generation after next,” she says. 

Such systematic efforts raise thorny questions for bioethicists. Some worry that pushes to eliminate disabilities devalue the lives of those who already have them. The cost and accessibility of the procedure raises concerns about genetic traits further widening the divide between rich and poor people. Then there are concerns about the push to select for non-disease-related traits, such as intelligence or athletic ability. The ever-present spectre of eugenics lurks in the shadows. But in China, although these concerns are considered, most thoughts are focused on the benefits of the procedures. “There are ethical problems, but if you bring an end to the disease, I think it’s good for society,” says Qiao.
