i just love everything he says

anonymous asked:

I hope we don't have to hear about her every time they happen to go to the same place in la lol not a single person that saw him said she was there and she was in a completely different area than him yet u still got anons about it. He literally liked something about being single before the show as if his ass knew when he probably literally had no idea she would show up considering mitchy dropped her ass

I just feel bad for him bc this bitch doesn’t define him, she’s fucking nothing compared to him and I don’t want his legacy to be “remember when Luke dated arzaylea” she doesn’t deserve to be even muttered in the same sentence as Luke. He deserves better, bc he’s so much more than she will ever be. Luke moved on time for everyone else to do the same. Let her crash and burn with her shitty modelling contract and followers. She got what she wanted so she can keep it and fuck off

Turn The Memory To Stone

Malec fic set after 2x13. Also deals with 2x12. Kinda sad, kinda not.

“You never have to prove yourself to me,” Alec says. He has a thousand other things he needs to say to Magnus, everything has been so fucked up lately, he’s been so fucked up lately, but all that comes out is a strained and stuttered, “I love you.”

And Magnus, who has every right to still be angry instead, cups Alec’s face and says he loves him too and kisses him. Alec grips Magnus by the hip and shoulder and kisses back, here on this patio that’s become a sanctuary of sorts for the both of them, together and separately.

Alec pulls away and rests his forehead against Magnus’s, taking a moment to just breathe and be. He can feel the tension still in Magnus’s body, the way he stands just slightly away from Alec instead of leaning into him. “You’re still angry,” Alec states lightly.

“A little,” Magnus admits. His tone is gentle, though, sad more than anything.

Alec licks at his lips, thinking of what to say, and realizes he tastes something smoky-sweet and alcoholic. “You’ve been drinking.”

Magnus pulls away at that, but a small smile plays at his mouth. “A little.” The grin slips, and sadness returns. “Or, a lot.”

play date | dan howell

summary: fic based off of the song by melanie martinez
warnings: cussing 
pov: y/n
a/n: this was requested by a nonnie. let me know if you liked it. req’s are open

     you call me on the telephone, you feel so far away
     you tell me to come over, there’s some games you wanna to play.


I read on the screen as the light from my phone shone through the dark walls of my room. Dan had just hung up the phone, telling me to meet him at his place in thirty. This had been going on for a few months now, he calls me up and says he’s lonely, I fall for his words and come rushing to his place to try and make him forget about everything.

I walk to Dan’s place, then knock on his door and wait for him to open it. “Hey, love.” Dan says, his voice raspy and tried. I am greeted with his shirtless physique and messed up hair, I think of running my hands through it but immediately stop myself from doing so.  

As I step in and trudge towards Dan’s room, I notice how quiet it is. His roommate must be out again, it’s only the two of us in his place, no one to interrupt or hear us. 

    it’s getting hard to breathe under the sheets with you
    i don’t want to play no games
    i’m tired of always chasing after you

I turn my body to face Dan while pulling the duvets closer to my naked body, we were both panting from the previous escapade that had just finished a few minutes ago. I was about to say something when Dan cut me off and said, “I think you need to leave now.” His voice was stern yet laced with slight exhaustion. 

I was going to interrupt and ask why but I didn’t want to cause a scene or worse, make him angry and end whatever we had going on so instead, I shut my mouth, gave him a quick nod and started throwing my clothes on so I could leave his place as soon as possible.

    i don’t give a fuck about you anyways
    whoever said i give a shit about you?

My eyes flickered through the dim lit room that smelled of alcohol mixed with sweat. I was sitting in a booth with my friends when one of them spoke up, causing me to snap out of my thoughts.

 “Hey Y/N, how are you and Dan?” She asked. “Yeah, it’s been months and we haven’t even met him yet. Are things getting serious between you two?” The other shouted through the loud music that echoed through the pub. I just rolled my eyes and shook my head.

“We’re not together,” I huffed. “— I could care less about him or what he’s up to. I’ve had enough, I’m never sleeping with him ever again.”  I continued, hoping they would believe the lies that fell from my lips because in reality, I wanted something more from Dan, something other than the physical connection we had going on.

I want him to look at me the same way I looked at him, not just lust but with love. I want to be able to rest my head on his chest at night at wake up in the morning and feel his arm wrapped around my waist. I want to be able to introduce him to my friends and family, to walk down the streets hand in hand letting everyone know we were together. But sadly, that wouldn’t be happening anytime soon.

    wake up in your bedroom 
    and there’s nothing left to say

I try and look for my phone on the bedside table, but quickly noticing the table was gone. My eyes flutter open and I immediately shoot up from the bed that obviously wasn’t mine. Trying to recall the events from last night, all I remember was being in a bar with my friends and Dan callin— Oh fuck.

Cautiously tilting my head to the side, I see Dan beside me, the duvets covering only half of his body, his chest rising up and down as a soft snore escaped his lips. I was almost tempted to lay back down and cuddle with him until I remembered how I’ve never slept at his place before. We’d usually fuck and he’d just kick me out without a second thought.

I take my time and inspect his room, I’ve never seen it in broad daylight before. I could see all the little decorations he had lying around his room as well as our clothes scattered around. I kept a mental image of what his bedroom looked like in the morning since I wouldn’t be seeing much of it next time.

My thoughts, however, were quickly interrupted when Dan stirred beside me. I started to panic and tried to lay back down so I could pretend to be asleep but before I could rest my head down the pillow, he had already spoken up. “Y/N?” He started off, his eyebrow raising before he continued, “What are you still doing here?” 

anonymous asked:

Can I vent to you? I saw some people yesterday saying how "sweet" and 'kind" and "funny" and "generous" and "humble" PM is. Sorry but they must be getting him confused with David. PM is none of those things. The things he says are awful and the way he behaves is just as terrible. How ANYONE can think that's good or attractive is not something I can understand. And these people (I saw them in tags, I don't follow them thank God) were sending PM love and apologizing for the fandom. WTF?!?

Excuse me as I go out and vomit.🤢 Someone is very blinded by everything GA does.. and because they are sure she looks at him with hearteyes and are together with him, he must be perfect! It is childish and it is openly people who are unable to form their own personal opinion. Do they honestly, think she looks really happy and healthy? Do they they think there have been any good decisions she has taken recently? Do they they think all this with PM has caused something good? Do they think she’s herself? Do they think she’s like herself? And so on…..
Overall are they really excited about the new GA? 

I’m not, at all, but yes maybe they are temporarily blind and think it’s DD. 

PM is as you say, terrible, awful, self-confessed, selfish and woman/children-condescending. 

It’s embarrassing that there is adult woman who will support their idol in all her decisions, also those who are in every way bad and do not make sense. That they openly think it’s okay that a man who hates women and publicly has pronounced this, is with a female who used to be a feminist and that they do not question her actions. WTF is people thinking, had it been their friend or their daughter, who was with a man like PM  would they also support it? If it were their daughter who in publicly had her bikini briefs pulled down, her vag exhibited and in publicly touched her pussy…! It is just not okay!!!!!!

I’m sorry but all his actions, words and so forth, show a man who’s really bad news! When you see how much GA has changed and is almost completely unrecognizable, e.g she looks so alone on the balcony for that event in London. Seeing how thin she is now and seeing how much things she has previously said, suddenly does not remain important anymore. There are now over 500 images of them in Portofino, where they choose to go, even though they knew it was a paps place. Before she would never show herself like that to the publicly
(There are over 500 images FFS) and she’s habitually and usually goes to the same places. And very important we know she has a habit of not always making the best decisions relative to men and so further, why can people not see what is happening again ..!!! They act on this like children, children without their own opinion, children unable to read other people and finally children who likes everything in the world she is doing and she’s doing only positive things ! Grow up and relate to the world and independently consider GA, is not perfect, she’s a human and makes bad decisions like all of us. We do not have to support everything she does because we are fans, we are fans who have heads and can decide if things we see are right. And right now all I can conclude is that he is dangerous and she has lost herself completely!!!!!!!!!!

Imagine Krupp secretly supporting the boys at like sporting events if they're ever on a team. Like say they join baseball and he goes to their matches but he's all "I have to go I'm the principal it's expected of me" but he secretly has a super tiny foam finger in his pocket just for them

He secretly loves these boys to death but will never say it out loud and is super proud of them and everything they do

I’ve got this HC that Krupp would just demand any comic they have on them to prevent ‘distraction’ while in class but really he’s to shy to ask to read them so the boys just drop them off at his office every morning like s weekly comic thing like every Wednesday a new comic is ready or something and Krupp is always excited for it but he’s always like, meh whatever leave it there and as soon as the boys leave his office he launches across his desk to read it


“Don’t worry. They’ll find the right words to describe you.”
“And you.
“Oh that’s easy.”
“It is?” It seemed impossible to name everything she was to him.
Kestrels expression was serious, luminous. He loved to see her like this. “They’ll say that I’m yours,” she told him, “just as you are mine.”

Can I request a scenario where Mic has been with his s/o for a very long time and they tell him that they want to start transitioning? They're scared at first but Mic is completely open to the idea and offers to help them anyway he can? FTM please. Thank you!

I very much hope I wrote everything well and that I used the pronouns you wished for, if not, please let me know right away and I will change it immediately. Aside from that I hope you’ll like what I wrote!

Hizashi holds his partner’s hand and gives it a gentle squeeze, encouraging his love to look up to him. He smiles, warm and loving.

“I’m with you.” He says, voice just as warm and he lifts his partner’s hand to kiss his knuckles. “This is you and your body and I love and support you.” He keeps the eye contact up, sincere and open. “I will be there every step of the way.”

His partner exhales in a silent, heavy rush, his tense shoulders lowering and relaxing. He lean forward to rest his forehead on Hizashi’s shoulder and Hizashi wraps his free arm around him, hugging him close.

“I I was scared to tell you.” His love admits quietly and for a moment, Hizashi’s smile gets a tad said, before he nuzzles the side of his face and presses a kiss against his cheek.

“I understand, this is nothing easy and I’m so happy and proud of you that you decided to tell me and stay true to yourself.” He lets go of his hand when his boyfriend moves to hug him with both arms, both of them pressing close together.

“If there is anything I can do to help, let me know.” He grins at him. “You can always count on me.”

can I just say that Taemin trying out a much more contemporary style of dance in Flame of Love is literally everything i could have ever wanted

anonymous asked:

GOD stay at home dad alec makes me emotional. im imagining magnus coming home and asking how max was, alec says he was perfect even tho he was fussy all fucking day long and alec didn't get a moment of peace.

And of course, this particular lie causes even more problems. Because even though Alec is so determined to pretend that Max was calm and happy and perfect all day long to hide the fact that Alec was struggling, it just makes Magnus think that Max was perfectly fine until he got home. Alec creates a version of Max who’s an idyllic little cherub all day long, and then Magnus comes home and Max is screaming and crying (because that’s what Max is like all the time), and the only conclusion Magnus draws from that is that Max is only miserable when he’s around.

And neither of them are willing to talk about these problems. Magnus doesn’t want to admit that he’s a little afraid their kid hates him, and Alec can’t admit that Max is just as difficult with him, because he’s afraid mentioning at all will finally break him and it’ll all come out. But the truth is just that Max is an unfortunately difficult baby. He doesn’t adjust to a normal sleep schedule, he’s still colicky several months after most babies grow out of that sort of thing, he has intense rash reactions to a number of diapers and fabrics that aren’t easy to anticipate or predict, and he does NOT react well once he starts teething. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with him, he’s just difficult, through no fault of anyone. And being home with him all day, Alec always has the extra hardship of not knowing if Max is accidentally ‘altering’ things in the apartment with his magic, or if Alec is just loosing his goddamn mind and put the formula in the washing machine himself.

It would be a difficult situation for anyone, just because Max takes a lot of extra work. But Alec’s complete refusal to voice any of his concerns means that he’s essentially letting himself have one drawn-out anxiety attack over several miserable months. Even when Max is totally happy or sleeps for twelve straight hours, and Alec doesn’t have to worry that he’s incapable of caring for his own baby, that just leaves him alone with nothing to do all day, no one he can talk to, and intentionally isolating himself even if there IS someone he could spend time with.

While Magnus is the first person he should be talking to about these things, Alec staunchly refuses to tell him ANYTHING, and tries to pass off his odd moods and behaviors as a reasonable change as he adjusts to a completely new lifestyle. And Magnus accepts that explanation at face value, and tries not to pry in case that ends up making things harder. It’s a horrible, horrible few months for both of them - but mostly for Alec. There are a few weeks where he convinces himself that he and Magnus genuinely might not be able to make it work. At one point, he even considers moving back into the Institute. Both of them regard it as the lowest point in their whole relationship.

Mtmte Ultra Magnus, Ratchet, Cyclonus, Megatron & Rung accidentally overheard their shy sparkling actually bragging about them to other bots?

They are… Like… Really great though.


Ultra Magnus
He’s headed for the bridge when he stops dead at hearing his sparkling talking animatedly and swears he hears his name. He quietly goes over to the door where he hears them and sees them talking to Drift and can hear properly just what their saying. It takes everything in him not to run into the room and just hug his little one close as they tell Drift how great their sire is. He leaves quickly, not wanting to get caught. He’s in a noticeably better mood for the rest of the day and most of the next.

It’s been so slow so the little one has been in and out of the medbay most of the day, as long as they’re careful. He’s busied himself with cleaning up berth’s and equipment when he overhears his sparkling speaking with First Aid, both rather animated and loud; First Aid was always good with sparkling’s. He can’t quite make out what their saying, despite how loud they are, and is just about to leave it when he hears his name. He perks as he listens and can’t help but to laugh when he hears his sparkling arguing with First Aid about how Ratchet is the best doctor. Laughs more when the sparkling throws it’s toy at him and yells at him for listening in.

He’s working on something, Tailgate and his little one playing in the background. He’s been mostly drowning them out, white noise on his receptors, far too concentrated. However, he perks up when he hears his name and he’s just about to ask if they were speaking to him when he realizes they were speaking about him. His sparkling is speaking about 90 miles an hour and telling Tailgate just how great Cyclonus is. It doesn’t surprise him when Tailgate excitedly agrees. He smiles before going back to the work at hand, he knows they think he’s not listening and there’s no reason to let them know he was.

He’s been quite busy and hasn’t had a moment to even sit down and rest, let alone check in on his sparkling, so he’s desperate to do so. He’s almost running down the halls in his rush to collect his little on from Rung, who offered to watch them. He was just about to open the door when he heard them saying his name, he shouldn’t listen in, but he does anyway. He smiles brightly when he hears them telling Rung how great he is. He gently knocks before he comes in, swinging his bitlet up into his arms when they run at him for a hug.

He’s had quite a few appointments today and as such has left his little one in Drift’s care until he can come get them. He can hear them just a few paces from the door, hearing his name. He’s not actually listening in and doesn’t pause to do so, but he still hears them clearly telling Drift he’s an great ‘sickleanamalist’. He can’t help it, chuckling as he knocks on the door and comes in. He’s not surprised when they pat his legs and tell him he’s bad for listening in. He apologizes as he lifts them up, kissing their forehelm.


The video made me so god damn emotional and I started crying (but in a good way) at these points

The first gif because it’s been about 5 months since my golden retriever, Sandy, died. We’d had her for around 10 years. I loved her more than anyone or anything, and Chica always makes me think of Sandy and how much of a lovable idiot she was

The second gif just makes me heart explode. The fact he looked down at Chica before saying ‘this is everything to me’ and the look in his eyes. It’s just so beautiful and adorable and heart warming to see such love

anonymous asked:

The one I love remembers all the small things about me. Even if I'm just babbling about something I like he listens to everything. Or if I just say "I love ___." and never mention it again, he'll remember. I have a really bad memory but I remember basically everything he says. Like I'm doing something completely unrelated to him and I remember just something completely random that he said, but since it was said my /him/ I'll remember it and I can't get it out of my head. (〃▽〃)

that’s so CUTE ohmylord 💜💜

Can I just take a moment to say how much I love @hannah-the-small  ‘s Dave.

        They’re just… everything!

He’s strong, never gives up, works through no matter what.


but he keeps working and taking care of his kid!

He’s such a good dad, and a sweet person for Mettaton to feel hubled by. That the star is jealous of how amazing he is, and wishes he could be half as strong as him.

im really glad that yg lovers love him so much but when i read some tweets on allkpop they were just too salty to jaewon 😭

I’ve seen people saying everything from not liking him bc he betrayed Samuel for his own ego & that they hope he flops to even saying that he’s choosing to debut rn so he can be petty and compete with Samuel since he’ll likely debut soon too lolololol. Like do people really think his debut date was up to him? It must be nice living in a world where you think yg of all companies let’s their artists/trainees choose their own promotion time/debut dates hahahaha.

I’ve also seen things like “you should debut X person instead” or “but where is so and so instead?” But who cares. I’m not letting anyone ruin this for him or all of us.

i hate when straight women w short haircuts come into my salon and start joking about having a lesbian haircut/requesting short hair that “doesn’t make them look like a lesbian LOL”

today a straight woman sat down and showed me the picture of the haircut she wanted and she was like “i showed this picture to my husband and he was like ‘wow are you gonna get a girlfriend now’ haha. i love him he’s so ridiculous”

i never know what to say. it feels weird, because i know they say these things to me under the assumption that i’m straight. i don’t know how i’m supposed to respond. “oh don’t worry, you definitely don’t look like a lesbian!” or “omg don’t worry i won’t give you a LESBIAN looking haircut haha”

i can’t just out myself and play along. i do everything in my power to prevent outing myself to any of my clients.

and it feels like some cruel joke is being played on me, like this is straight humor that women laugh about behind our backs. i mean i know it is. it’s just weird being a part of it. i don’t know how to ask straight women to stop joking about butch lesbian haircuts while they’re in my chair. i don’t know what to do when straight women laugh about looking like a lesbian, i don’t really know how to take that, like if it’s a joke at the expense women like me or just harmless commentary. i don’t know what to say, and i can’t bring myself to laugh along with them.

it’s not a subject i want to talk about. i know that makes me sensitive, but i’ve been through a lot of very traumatic experiences because i’m gay. it’s humiliating to perform a service for straight women who seem to think there’s something funny about people daring to think they might be gay


I decided to become an artist when I was about your age. I liked to draw so much, I almost hated to go to bed. And then one day, all of a sudden, I couldn’t draw anything. Everything I drew, I didn’t like. I realized that my art up to then was a copy of someone else, things I had seen somewhere. I decided I had to discover my own style. It’s still difficult. But then, the results… They seem to be a little better than before. It’s nice to be a witch, isn’t it? I like the idea - to be a witch, to be an artist, to be a baker… It’s an energy bestowed by the gods or someone, right? Though thanks to it, we do have to suffer at times.

i talked to him on a wednesday. he sighed on my bed. i was skyping my sister, who was trying to teach me how to knit. i told him i needed to go to bed early, i had a test in the morning. he said he had things to discuss and i’m a patient person so i listened.

this is, i learn, how our “friendship” works. hours of my life become his sanctuary. he texts me constantly. his problems fill up every space in my planner. often he demands my attention rather than asking. i feel bad, because i’m the type to feel bad, so i listen. i offer advice that goes ignored, i sit in contemplative silence even though i should be studying, i nod my head and support him. 

he doesn’t notice i start drinking wine as soon as he shows up. a few times i make the mistake of trying to bring my own problems up. they are always overshadowed by his own, or else i am given an odd supply of uncomfortable comments. “i don’t feel good lately” is met with “a girl as pretty as you isn’t supposed to feel sad.” i say “i don’t like my writing recently” and he spends forty seconds saying i’m beautiful and intelligent and a perfect girlfriend before saying “unlike me, i’m awful” and before i know it, i’m comforting him again. we don’t have real conversations. once, as an experiment, i spend two hours completely silent, just to see if he’ll notice. he doesn’t. 

once he bursts into my room while i’m scheduling my week. he’s taken aback by how much i’m doing. “you look so busy!” he says, “where’s all the time you’re planning on spending with me?” he doesn’t ask about any of my other activities. he knows nothing about my life except that i’m good at listening. i feel myself under a rolling pin. he flattens me out to use me. he punishes me if i don’t give him attention - all i hear is how he is useless without me, how he’s barely holding on, how he doesn’t know what he’d do if one day i was gone. he doesn’t know my middle name. he misses my birthday.

it’s wednesday again. i’ve been drinking. he took some of my wine without asking. he lounges on my couch with his arm casually around me. my actual friends know i don’t like touching. i asked him to move but he just laughed and said “you’re so funny.” he’s too heavy for me to move physically so i just let him lay there, complaining. i stare into space, thinking about the news i got that day. about how my life has changed.

he looks up to me. “can i ask you a personal question?”  

i don’t say “that would be a first,” because my mother raised me to respond politely. i tell him go ahead, as always, i’m listening.

“why do girls like you date jerks?” he asks me.

i stare at him, uncomprehending. he is a runaway train, his mouth still moving. “I just mean,” he says, “you’re all always going after the worst guys like you don’t even see people like me. like i’m always being friend-zoned, even you did it, and you’re one of the only people who is nice to me. but girls like you never say yes to boys like me.”

i don’t know what he’s saying. i’m dating a girl, and he would know that, if he knew anything about me; a clever and talented girl who means everything to me. 

he sighs and sits back when i’m not immediate in responding. “this,” he says, “is what i mean.” looks up with puppy dog eyes at me, “i mean could you ever date someone as awful as me? am i just a friend? am i doomed to be nothing more than the friend to pretty girls?”

we aren’t friends. we aren’t friends. we aren’t friends. 

he moves the topic before i can reply, back to his problems. i text my girlfriend, “men are animals” and she sends me back a poem about how much she loves me. he tries to kiss me when he leaves, and when i duck out of it, i later get sixteen texts on how scared i am of sex. his facebook posts are all about how women don’t know how to find the right men. how we’re blind to the good things. how we don’t see fate when it’s happening. 

he says, “i wrote you something.”

it’s a poem about him.

so i just wanted to make a post with all of my favorite Bakugou moments

(this was gonna be a post about bakugou-isms. like. moments where bakugou has said/done something inspiring or wise. but. ended up getting carried away jkl;agha)

anyway i apologize because. this is gonna be long

1. Bakugou declaring that he refuses to lose to anyone again, recognizing that there are other people who are stronger than him that he needs to surpass.

i just really enjoy this moment, because it was a big wake-up call for his character to realize that he isn’t the best, there are people in the world who can surpass him, and that he needs to work harder to reach his goals. the world isn’t as black and white as he thought, and it’s his first step to his major development later on.

2. Bakugou calmly analyzing the situation at USJ 

i really like this moment b/c it’s s fascinating to watch Bakugou explain that none of their classmates are in danger, and that they should instead go and capture Black Mist, because he’s how the Villains got in in the first place. 

it shows that he’s far more than just a violent, angry, rage machine. underneath it all, he’s actually far more intelligent than he seems, and this scene is one of the first that really showcases that

(this is also the moment where Kirishima finally begins to trust him; before this, he was really wary of Bakugou because of how violently he went after Izuku during the Heroes vs. Villains exams (he was seriously worried that Bakugou would kill Izuku). it’s only after this moment where Kirishima changes his initial opinion of Bakugou and begins to trust him)

3. Bakugou explaining that a quirk is nothing more than an extension of a person’s body

i just really love that, of all the characters to do this, it’s Bakugou that explains that even quirks have their limits. it’s a very introspective moment that reminds the audience that these amazing powers aren’t limitless, and that even Bakugou, despite his pride and stubbornness, knows he has limits to what he can do



5. Bakugou acknowledging Uraraka’s strength 

PRETTY SELF EXPLANATORY, TBH. i love how he refuses to cal her weak in any capacity, defending her against Kaminari’s words. he fought her. he knows better than anyone here that she is anything but weak. and this is the first moment where he’s vocally defending another person, which i love b/c it’s another step in his character development

6. Bakugou telling off Todoroki for standing before him without the intent to win

this scene really shows a lot of what motivates Bakugou’s character. He wants to win against Todoroki–who’s one of the strongest in the class–and prove himself as the best. But Todoroki isn’t really fighting back, because he’s going through personal issues, which is understandable and under no fault of his own.

tbh, i think it’s an interesting point to think about, because everyone at the Sports Festival is here to win. they’re all trying their best–Bakugou, Izuku, Uraraka (who Bakugou even alludes to in his rant above), Momo, etc. and it is kind of insulting to fight someone who isn’t even really trying to fight back against you in a tournament where that’s the entire purpose of it all. 

that’s why Bakugou fought so hard against all of his opponents, because they all got to this level. he’s showing them respect by not going easy on them. and Bakugou finds it extremely insulting that Todoroki isn’t. i just find it a fascinating aspect to his character. it’s kind of an off-shoot of a ‘warrior’s code’ sort of thing

7. Bakugou refusing to accept his win at the Sports Festival 

again, i think it shows an interesting aspect of his character, because he feels like this win wasn’t deserved, because Todoroki didn’t give it his all. it’s a hollow win, and Bakugou knows it, and he refuses to accept it. 

8. the strength of Bakugou’s ideal of what a hero should be and his SHEER GODDAMN TENACITY DURING THE END OF TERM EXAM

I just love that his ideal of what a hero should be is based on All Might, the ultimate hero, who NEVER loses. this his why he became a hero in the first place, this is what motivates him in everything he does. to Bakugou, real heroes never lose, so he absolutely has to win. always.

and i love how he just refuses to give up–maybe it’s not always the greatest thing (pushing himself too far and all) but i find that really admirable too. no matter what, he just refuses to give up, and i love that (even if it isn’t exactly the best thing sometimes). he’s gonna do everything in his power to win, because that’s what heroes do, and nothing short of being knocked unconscious is gonna stop him.

9. Bakugou absolutely fucking REFUSING to join the Villain Alliance, practically BLOWING SHIGARAKI’S FACE UP WHILE DOING SO, because no matter what they say, he’s going to be a HERO, and goddammit. 

he was inspired by All Might, that’s the person who motivated him to become a hero in the first place, that’s the person who he’s admired since he was a child, and the person he wants to become like. and nothing in this world is going to change that.

10. Bakugou refusing to lie, even when he’s been kidnapped and surrounded by villains. 

i just find it fascinating that this is one of his personal morals, and that he (like All Might) doesn’t lie. he may be in denial more often than not, but he never lies. 

11. Aizawa defending Bakugou against the reporters

i just love how Aizawa understands Bakugou, how he realizes that Bakugou is no way in danger of becoming a villain. how Bakugou’s motivations come from an different place entirely. how it all comes from his ideal of strength, and of what a hero should be. i just really love that. 

12. Bakugou thanking All Might for saving him.

this is the third time All Might saved Bakugou. the first time, in chapter one, Bakugou was in complete denial. he didn’t need saving. he didn’t need anyone. how dare anyone think he needed rescuing?

the second time, at the Villain’s Alliance base, he was, again, in denial. he didn’t need All Might to come save him; even if he was happy and relieved that All Might was there, he wasn’t gonna admit to it. no way. absolutely not.

the third time… All Might saved him (and everyone at Kamino) by fighting against AFO. by refusing to go down. by using the last of his strength to defeat AFO, revealing his secret to the world, giving up OFA, and retiring for good. 

Bakugou feels guilty for this. he feels like the cause of All Might’s retirement. for getting kidnapped in the first place. for not being strong enough to save himself. so this time, he’s without denial or bluster. instead, he quietly thanks All Might for saving him, because he knows what All Might gave up to do it.

it’s a big moment of character growth for him. prior to all of that, Bakugou never would’ve done that. but the weight of All Might’s sacrifice was just too much, it humbled him. he couldn’t deny it anymore. so he sincerely thanked All Might for saving him, for the first time, quietly admitting to his weakness.

13. Bakugou giving Kirishima back the money he used to buy the night vision goggles for the rescue mission (learning about it from Kaminari), while also cheering the class up after Aizawa scolded them, by making Kaminari fry his brain and making them all laugh. 

just… what a fantastic moment of character growth from Bakugou. he felt guilty for Kirishima using his money to buy those goggles (which ended up getting destroyed during the mission), and he feels bad for being the reason why class getting reprimanded in the first place. so he fixes both situations as best he can, while still being his gruff, grumpy self. 

he gives back the money, and cheers the class up at the same time. and Aizawa totally catches onto it, too. “A farce like this has it’s place once in a while, I suppose.” it just shows that Bakguou actually does care about his class, Kirishima in particular. 

it shows that he cares his friends and his class, and i love that

14. Kaminari talking about Bakugou during the Provisional License Exam 

Kaminari mentions how the insulting words Seiji is throwing at them stings, and Sejii assumes Kaminari is talking about himself. he isn’t. Kaminari corrects him while throwing one of Bakugou’s grenades, which gives a visual cue of who he’s talking about. Bakugou.

Bakugou got angry at Seiji’s words. he charged in recklessly because he couldn’t stand the insults to UA anymore. he got upset at hearing the people he cares about be insulted. and then Kaminari goes on to say/think about how Bakugou wasn’t using the full force of his attacks. 

he was purposefully using lower-powered blasts in order to keep Kirishima and Kaminari safe. he purposefully put himself at a disadvantage just so he wouldn’t accidentally hurt them with the force of his attacks. 

Kaminari realizes this and praises Bakugou, defends him against Seiji’s words. he may not have the kindest or sweetest personality, but he’s serious about being a hero. he’s serious about keeping them safe. he’s serious about everything, and he can’t stand hearing Seiji insult him, the people he cares about, or UA.

15. Bakugou’s guilt at causing All Might’s retirement.

oh my god, save this child. save him. he completely, totally blames himself for causing the person he admires the most, the person who inspired him to become a hero, the man who’s motivated him since he was a child, to fall.

he’s just 15. he’s just a child. and he feels guilty for this, he’s feeling the full weight of it on his shoulders, breaking down from it all, and he doesn’t know how to handle it. he’s scared. he’s terrified. he feels horrible. the number 1 hero in the world was forced to retire and it’s all his fault

he’s been blaming himself for this for weeks. he’s just a child. he isn’t responsible for any of it, but he feels like he is. if only he were stronger, if only he got away on his own power, if only he did this or that, maybe All Might would still be a hero. if only he wasn’t so weak.

i love this moment, as painful as it is, because it shows just how human Bakugou is. it shows that he really is just a child dealing with horrible guilt, among other emotional issues (feeling like Izuku was looking down at him for all these years, being terrified that Izuku could one day surpass him, realizing that All Might acknowledged Izuku over him, having a superiority and inferiority complex that just exploded, feeling desperate for an answer over what he should do, and who was right in how they admired All Might (Bakugou for how he always wins, Izuku for how he always saves people with a smile, etc)).

in the end, he’s still just a child. a child dealing with so much more than he ever let on until this fight, where it all exploded out of him, because he just didn’t know how to handle them. he couldn’t bottle it up anymore. 

(i will never, ever excuse or justify any of the horrible things Bakugou did in the past. what he did was inexcusable. but god.. he’s still just a child.)

i love this moment because he’s so scared, terrified, upset, confused, desperate and just so damn human in this moment, and i love it. he’s not just an angry kid. he’s not just a violent, rage machine. there are so many emotions that drive him and i love it so much.

16. Bakugou supporting Izuku after their fight

i just…. really love this. Bakugou has had so many issues with Izuku in the past, many of them stemming from misunderstandings. as mentioned above, he thought Izuku was looking down on him. he was terrified of Izuku’s growth, feared that one day he could actually surpass him one day. but now they’ve talked. now they understand each other better. now Izuku has the support of All Might… and he can’t be losing. 

(and again, none of those reasons justify what Bakugou did to Izuku for those ten years. but they explain why he did it in the first place. i just want to emphasize that) 

to Bakugou, real heroes never lose. Bakugou is applying that to Izuku, now. he’s got the greatest hero in the world helping him, and he can’t be losing. Bakugou, in his own way, is supporting Izuku. it’s one of the biggest moments of character growth for him. for the longest time, he was terrified of Izuku. scared he’d be left behind while Izuku grew stronger. but now he’s putting that aside. 

Izuku has All Might’s power. he has All Might’s support. they both admired him… and now Izuku is being supported by him. so now Bakugou will, too.

Izuku has the greatest hero in the world looking after him. he can’t be losing now. not anymore.

17. Bakugou encouraging Kirishima

i just…. look at how far Bakugou has come. he went from being terrified of others being better than him–of not being as great as he grew up believing–and now he’s supporting Izuku (the person who scared and frustrated him the most), and now he’s actively giving encouragement and helping his friend. 

hell. Bakugou has friends now. he didn’t have any at the beginning of the series; he was to full of pride to see anything but  himself. but now he does, and he’s giving them encouragement. giving Kirishima encouragement. and he’s doing so by drawing from the Kamino incident, the very incident that gave him so much guilt and confusion and pain. the incident that probably gave him nightmares for who knows how long. 

he’s bringing up that incident to comfort and support and encourage his friend. he’s talking about how there are different kinds of strength out there–that just refusing to go down is it’s own strength. this from the kid who’s entire philosophy on heroism is to never lose. 

he’s not scared of being surpassed. he’s got friends now. he’s helping and supporting them in his own way. he’s not afraid to think of the very incident that caused him so much pain; he’s healing from it, slowly. he’s learned from it. he’s slowly accepting that it wasn’t his fault. he’s admitting that there are other kinds of strength out there, besides just winning. it’s about refusing to go down (like All Might did at Kamino). 

this is one of my favorite moments, even tho it’s so short, because it’s a culmination of Bakugou’s character development so far in the story. it’s a small moment, but it wouldn’t mean anything without the hundred or so chapters proceeding it, showing all of Bakugou’s complexities, and all of his personal issues, motivations, emotional struggles, etc. 

this moment is great because it shows just how far Bakugou has come since chapter one. he’s almost a completely different character than who he was, where he began. and that’s why i love it so much

long story short Bakugou is an incredibly complex kid and i love him a lot
