Whats your opinion on the headcanon that bakugou is hard of hearing because of how loud his explosions are? If you dont mind my asking
I think I answered this q on this blog already? Maybe? But anyway, I don’t exactly mind it, but I can’t say I share the headcanon myself - for one, because I’m of the opinion that their bodies are built to withstand a safe use of their quirks (a bit like you can’t break a leg by simply walking, you know), so in general I’m not a fan of headcanons that include damages caused by simply doing what their bodies were born to do?
But also because generally, even under the assumption that his body isn’t made to hold up with his explosions, isn’t it awfully convenient how only his ears take damage in these scenarios? What about his eyes? How come he can still see with no problems even with the continuous exposure to the explosions’ light? How about his hair? How come he can stand so close to fire without it ever being damaged by it? His palms have thicker skin and we know that thanks to his UA file, but what about the rest of his body? How come he can stand smack in the middle of an Howitzer Impact without getting even slightly burnt? When you say “only his ears aren’t made to withstand his explosions” what you’re telling me is that his whole body is tailord to deal with his quirk but his ears, and that just feels unrealistic to me - by which I mean, when this is the scenario we’re talking about, you can’t give the fault of the damage to Bakugou’s quirk. It’s a problem his body has, not a natural consequence of having that sort of quirk. And imho with those premises you sort of end up with a different kind of story, you’re supposed to write it differently - that’s what I think, at least
Maybe the reason Baku raises his voice so often is because he can’t hear very well, which isn’t due to his explosions, rather, he was born with bad hearing to protect him from taking damage by them.. and then his other senses are sharper to even it out, and his body can even subconsciously notice air vibrations, resulting in really fast reflexes.
Ah, this is also another reason why I’m not a huge fan of the headcanon - don’t get me wrong! If you like it then go on, I’m not trying to stop anyone from enjoying ideas and possibilities!! But personally I like Bakugou not having any reason to be loud-mouthed and rude, that’s just his personality and how the environment he grew up in made him, and lately I’ve seen the hc used to justify his behaviour more than I like? Bakugou being an asshole is just who he is, and I love it! I love that his life made him like that and I love that he’s working hard to fix that flaw, giving him an external reason, something he has no control over, to justify his personality changes the core of his character too much, and that’s not something I’d ever want to do tbh
And it’s also cool to think that he was somewhat genetically engineered to be better in a fight to compensate for a lack of earing (though again, why only his ears and not his eyes or his sense of tact too), but that goes to cut on all the hard work he put in becoming as good as he is, right? If that’s what you like than who am I to stop you! But Bakugou’s hardworking nature is one of the things I love about him, I don’t really feel like taking away from him all the effort and work he put through the years in becoming as good as he is now
can i just say, as a guy that likes guys, i couldn’t be happier that there’s actually a fuckin dating game now where you play as a man, date other men exclusively, and it’s not clearly written for straight women and was actually headed by a man who’s mlm and you can be TRANS and your love interests are DIVERSE and at least one of them is ALSO EXPLICITLY TRANS
List of things that didn’t make any sense in 2x14 that have nothing to do with Karamel
J’onn not mindreading Jeremiah the second they got to him to make sure he wasn’t evil
The DEO diagnosing Jeremiah with nerve tissue problems instead of noticing the huge amounts of circuitry in him
Kara not noticing the huge amounts of circuitry in him (x-ray vision yo)
J’onn saying that Jeremiah would have to have a psych evaluation and then in the next scene giving Jeremiah a DEO pass and duties without any psych evaluation
 Jeremiah’s cyborgness not being picked up by the DEO’s security (eg: metal detector) implying that the DEO has no security whatsoever
Winn having enough spare time during an emergency situation (literally National City could be nuked at any moment) to go grab a pint with his mate Mon-El
Alex getting angry at Kara for following up on the information Winn gave her despite the fact that when Alex initially heard this same information she was followed up on it with Jeremiah too
Jeremiah hacking into the DEO’s mainframe through a monitor
Jeremiah covering his tracks by blowing up a monitor
The DEO tracking Supergirl’s heat vision’s nuclear signature, implying that the heat vision is a nuclear process (fair enough) that can be reversed and contained but only into a particular substance with a unique signature (what)
The DEO knowing what the signature is despite having never harnessed her vision into this unknown substance
Cyborg Superman just leaving as soon as he felled that tree, not bothering to engage either Alex or Kara in combat
Alex not shooting Jeremiah in the leg, or arm, or anywhere non-fatal
The whole James Roberts/Megatron controversy is wayyy overblown and
people are treating James Roberts like he’s writing Megatron as if he
never did anything wrong but let’s not forget the following points:
It really bothers me how much the fandom hates Sera yet conveniently forget how vicious Fenris was to Merrill. Why is it when there is a flawed female character they always get villified and trashed yet the flawed male characters get a free pass? The double standard in this fandom really needs to stop.
Don’t perform for me,
don’t conform to what I want you to be,
who you are when no one sees
the image you don’t
In fear, you a are,
unsure if someone
could love your core.
To be told,
is the foundation
Guilt - for leaving Frank for Jamie, and not giving Frank all of her heart when Jamie sent her back to him
- she *did* love him, when she was younger - and I think even though
their marriage was strained after she returned, she still loved him in
certain ways. Or at least loved the idea of what their marriage had been
Habit - like any piece of jewelry, it becomes a part of you - and not wearing it makes you feel unsettled
- gold is valuable - it’s portable wealth - it’s the ultimate back-up
plan (remember when Jamie asked/ordered Claire to give him the ring as
collateral in a card game in The Fiery Cross)
It’s Claire’s only physical link to the 20th century
- her touchstone, or physical anchor, to that time. In my mind, this is
the most important reason - it’s her constant reminder that she really
did come from another time - that she really wasn’t meant to be in the
18th century. Just like how Jamie’s ring was her only physical link to
the 18th century, in the years after she returned.
And here’s what Diana Gabaldon has said about it (from the first Outlandish Companion, published in 1999):
Claire has history with Frank—a lot of history, and very mixed, in terms of joy and pain. He was her first love, her first husband, and when she married him, she did so with the full intention of being married to him for life. She is, after all, a very loyal and honest person. For her to have “left” him and chosen to stay with Jamie was an act of betrayal, and she knows it. Frank did nothing wrong; his only “crime” was not to be Jamie…
So this is a difficult, complex relationship. The difficulties and guilts don’t mean that there is nothing of value between them. The love they once had for each other is still there, augmented and supported by their united feelings for Brianna…If Claire were capable of simply walking away from this sort of history and feeling, abandoning a huge piece of her life and identity, just because she was now in a different place… well, she wouldn’t be capable of loving Jamie in the whole-hearted way that she does. She wouldn’t be a whole person. As it is, she’s now relieved of the guilt of her flawed relationship with Frank, and free to treasure the memory of its good moments. Jamie, being the whole-hearted person he is, is aware of this, and wants her to know that he’s able to accept the knowledge of what she shared with another man—the one thing Frank couldn’t do.
…For her to refuse Frank’s ring, and essentially reject all he was, to deny the value of thirty years of a complex but valuable relationship—well, that would be both dishonest and petty. And neither Claire nor Jamie is small in mind or heart.
can’t believe 2d and murdoc are all grown up and telling the weather, being bilingual and advising the world to “keep it left,” effortlessly putting the recent rise in extreme right wing politics in the western world to an end. what kind flaw free character development?
