Hi, Aunty Scripty! Thanks for running this blog! It's such an amazing resource, and I appreciate all the hard work you put into it! On to my question, my character is in a bad situation, and as a last resort, because his hands are bound behind his back, bites his attacker's throat. Would it be possible for him to actually tear out his attacker's throat with his teeth? Sorry that it's such a gruesome ask! Thanks again!
Probably not, but it’s certainly worth trying.
The throat is pretty well protected. The skin is thick and tough, the trachea itself is made of hard cartilage rings, and it’s actually surprisingly difficult for a human to get a good mouth-hold on another human’s neck. (If you have a significant other who is okay with this, give it a try; don’t actually bite down though).
Hunters who do the throat-ripping thing usually have longer mouths than we do, which helps them get a grip on their prey. Humans have fairly short mouths by comparison, and really aren’t evolutionarily adapted for this task.
Now, that is not to say that having a human try to rip out your throat is not an absolutely fucking terrifying thing, because it is, and flesh missing from the neck can be psychologically devastating even if it’s not actually physically lethal. Your character could probably significantly damage the musculature and the skin, and possibly cause a severe venous bleed from the external or internal jugular.
If your character is going to get any better of a bite than that they’ll need their hands to hold the neck in place while they bite.
(Also, bites in fights is proooobably more @howtofightwrite‘s territory much more than it is mine ;) ).
Sometimes I think people underestimate just how smart Bakugou is. He's really observant and was able to piece everything together about Izuku's quirk. Idk I just really like when he displays his intelligence because you wouldn't expect it on a character as hot-headed as Bakugou. The guy is just smart okay.
YEAH, BAKUGOU IS ACTUALLY IN CREDIBLY SMART. me and a few other people went into detail about it [here], but just to elaborate a little…..
Bakugou is the third in his class, behind only Momo and Iida, two characters who grew up in rich families. Momo in particular has to know a lot in order to efficiently use her quirk, because she has to understand the molecular make up of an object in order to create it. And Iida is ridiculously studious, to the point of it almost being a parody.
these are the two people that Bakugou is behind in terms of grades.
even characters like Izuku, who’s known for his amazing analytical mind, and Todoroki, who also came from a wealthy and influential family, are both behind Bakugou.
in the databooks, Bakugou’s got an intelligence rating of 4 out of 5. that’s pretty damn amazing.
Bakugou is incredibly intelligent. again, in the databooks, it’s mentioned that he has the ability to change tactics on the spot when the need arises.
during the Heroes vs. Villains exam, All Might even notes that, despite his rage, Bakugou is still very calm. a part of Bakugou, regardless of his raging emotions, is calm and analyzing the situation and making changes as they need be.
during the same battle, the kids even notes that, despite Bakugou’s attitude and looks, he’s actually really, reallyclever. that move he just did takes more than just talent, it takes a complete understanding of his own quirk, and a total control of the output of his blasts.
this is another great example of how smart Bakugou is.
he wants to go after Black Mist. not because he wants the fame or glory for beating him, but because Black Mist is the key to beating the villains. they only got in due to his ability, and Bakugou figured out, very quickly, that in order to trap or beat the villains, they’d have to capture Black Mist first.
and as Kirishima berates him for not helping the others in the class, Bakugou easily replies with “Well, if those villains assigned such weak mooks to us, then no one else should have any problems either. It’ll be fine.”
he quickly and calmly realizes that the mooks that they’re all fighting are more bark then bite. the other students should have no problems fighting them, and Bakugou has full confidence in their ability to do so.
within just this one scene, Bakugou was able to come up with a plan to defeat the bad guys, and come to the conclusion that the rest of the students should be fine since the mooks they’re all fighting aren’t as dangerous as they seem.
it’s this ability to understand the situation and come up with tactics so quickly and calmly that convinces Kirishima to follow after Bakugou.
Bakugou is not just an angry thug. he’s incredibly smart. he’s the third in his class, and he’s probably that kid who finishes tests first and has to wait for everyone else to finish. at least if this panel is anything to go by
look at him playing with his fucking pencil, not a care in the world
Bakugou is not just an angry thug. he’s intelligent. he’s smart.
it’s no wonder that Bakugou was able to figure out the truth once he was given all the pieces to the puzzle.
when Izuku first told him that he got his quirk from someone else, Bakugou had no context for that statement. the second he was given more information and context, it all became clear.
This is a two-headed albino milksnake [x]. Each head has a brain and able to control over the shared body, causing difficulty in movement. Luckily, they shared the same stomach, snakes with separate stomachs will often fight and bite each other over the prey if one head has prey in its mouth.
In the wild, two-headed snake lifespan may be restricted significantly for they cannot escape predators well but despite this, two-headed snakes can lived up to 20 years in captivity.
It is so easy to starve yourself
in the same way she starved you of love.
It is so easy to withhold nourishment from your body
in the way she withheld nourishment from your soul.
because that feeling of emptiness, of nothing inside
you have ever known
and so to feel full is so frightening, so unfamiliar
and apparently you are undeserving of that sensation
for how else can you defend her deprivation?
How else can you explain the fact
that the same woman who brought you into the world
the same woman who was your world
is the same woman who brought it crashing down around you?
How else can you explain that
if not by diminishing your own worth?
what I wish you would realize
what I wish you would open your eyes wide enough to see
is that none of
is your fault
but rather hers,
rather due to her own inability to peer beyond her own demons
and see the angel that you are.
Darling, this is not your war
and your body is not a battlefield
nor are calories a crime.
Self-starvation is not your salvation
for it only continues the cycle she set
The only one who can save you now
and the only way out is to eat,
to fight through each tearful bite and merciless meal
to fight back against the urges and her voice shouting in your head,
to feed yourself and fight this sickness,
not the other way around.
Stop punishing your beautiful self for the cruelties she committed -
the soul that should be serving time is hers and hers alone.
Darling, you are so much more
than the unmothered child
the unwanted daughter.
If you want to define yourself as un-anything,
be unbound, unleashed and uninhibited -
be more than the perfect puppet she wanted you to be.
Somewhere beneath the lies she laid upon you
and the criticisms and insults she said make up who you are,
somewhere beneath it all is YOU.
There is an innocent little girl and a powerful young woman
waiting to be released.
So darling, take a breath and unchain her,
darling, set yourself free once and for all.
Stop waiting for her to give a love she is incapable of ever giving
and learn to love
you know what my favorite scene in power rangers is? that 2 second scene during the donut fight when Trini tries to bite it off the fork and Kim wags her finger and sternly says “No” while shaking her head with a smile and Trini pulls back with the cutest happy grin on her face
Warnings: it’s Loki the god of Mischief. You bet your sexy ass it’ll be the most NSFW of all of them
@dark-night-sky-99 requested: Hey!! I love your writing, and absolutely love how you take conscious of us curvy girls, not many care so thank you!!, I was recently reading your Curvy hips and pretty lips series and I know it’s closed but I was wondering if you could do something similar with Loki since he’s my favorite character and I’ve never read about him and a curvy reader before.
A/N: Let me know if you want to be tagged HERE. Comments appreciated and welcomed. This is the first time I write for Loki so be kind :)
