I'm just so confused as to what bakugou really wants from this ya know? Maybe I'm overthinking but like if he sees what all might saw (which I kinda doubt but he's surprised me before) what's the step from there?
i think Bakugou says it pretty clearly in the chapter!!
he wants confirmation. he wants validation. he wants to know what, exactly, about Izuku is so great that the Number One Hero–the man that they both admire and aspire to be like (for different reasons)–would do so much for him.
again, they both admired All Might for different reasons.
Izuku admired All Might’s selfless nature and kindness. Bakugou admired the way All Might always won in the end.
Bakugou wants to know if his aspirations–that is, the reasons he admired All Might in the first place–were wrong. he wants to know if Izuku’s were right. he wants to understand what about Izuku is so great, when, for his entire life, he truly believed that Izuku would be nothing more than a pebble in his path.
he wants to know if he was wrong.
and once he does… i think that much of what i said in [this post] will happen. i think this’ll be the first step down the road for Bakugou’s apology. i think he’ll finally realize just how badly he treated Izuku. i think that, after this fight, Bakugou will have a change in attitude towards Izuku because he’s faced with the reality that he was totally and utterly wrong about Izuku.
what Bakugou will get out of this is confirmation. it’ll be the knowledge that he was wrong. it’ll be the understanding that there is something in Izuku that he never noticed or acknowledged–something that All Might himself saw and deemed amazing enough to pass on his quirk to Izuku.
it’ll be the understanding of why All Might chose Izuku. why All Might acknowledged him, despite his quirklessness, despite his cowardly nature, despite every thing about Izuku that Bakugou mocked or hated.
this is the first time Bakugou is really accepting the fact that he might be wrong. he’s not trying to deny it, rather he’s trying to confirm it. this is a big step for him.
he’s actually second guessing himself. if there’s one unshakable thing about Bakugou, it’s his self confidence. but here, he’s second guessing everything. he’s second guessing his understanding of Izuku, he’s second guessing his motives for wanting to be a hero, he’s second guessing everything that finally got him to this point.
i think, once he sees what All Might saw in Izuku… he might be able to move forward. Bakugou is still sorta stuck in the past. even in this chapter, he referred to Izuku as a “pebble in his way.” the entire chapter is full of Bakugou bringing up callbacks to specific points in the manga concerning him and Izuku.
hell, even the first few pages is a callback to their childhood.
Bakugou is still stuck in the past. or rather, he clings to it–he’s still clings to that idea that Izuku is a pebble, that he’ll be Number One, that Izuku couldn’t possibly be a threat to him.
i think the confirmation of seeing Izuku–truly seeing Izuku for the first time–will allow him to move forward from this. it’ll allow him to let go of the past. he’s finally at that point where he’s able to second guess what he believed, so this fight might be the final step for Bakugou to let go of the past and move on. to realize that Izuku is much more than what he ever believed.
So I'm rlly heckin confused here, this girl was kinda flirting w me on Tuesday and I gave her my number (she asked for it), but she hasn't texted me or made any sort of attempt to interact with me, like idk if she thinks the number was fake or if I accidentally gave her the wrong number (we were speaking in Spanish, which I'm not terribly good at) or if she just changed her mind or what. I caught her staring at me a couple times today and I tried to follow her so I could talk but she ran off :/
maybe she’s shy??? or she wrote the number wrong :O anyway don’t push anything, maybe contact her on facebook or smth like that ??? just ask if you’re good
A friend and I are going to one of the upcoming shows, but, i'm ashamed to say, i seem to have lost track of your music. I have a couple of your old albums, but at this point I'm confused by "Hank Green" vs "Hank Green and the Perfect Strangers." What's the difference? Like, if I don't binge-listen to the recent stuff in the next few weeks (which I'll probably do anyway) will I recognize any of the songs at the concert?
It’s the same songs, but with a band. The band makes it more of a concert experience rather than just “dude with a guitar.” And I know a fair number of people think they would prefer “dude with guitar” but I think those people are (and don’t take this the wrong way) wrong. It’s so much more fun with a band…for me and for the audience. It’s a little scarier to go to that kind of show, a little more weird and intense…but that’s how memories are made, and that’s what I want to do with our shows.
Also, it’s selfish, I have a much better time with the band than doing it by myself :-).
We’ll be playing a lot of old stuff. Anglerfish, Deathly Hallows, Strange Charm, The Universe is Weird…all the hits! Also newer stuff like “I Fucking Love Science,” “Hug Scream,” and “We’re All Gonna Die.” And covers…secret covers that I am not telling you about yet.
Hello sorry to bother you but I'm confused with the bangtan album. Don't they have many albums out already but I'm seeing that this album that coming out is going to be there 2nd full one so what's the difference between all the other albums.
from what I know the difference is just the number of songs? all the other albums that bangtan put out are called mini albums or repackaged albums and then one full album which is Dark and Wild.
Usually a mini album has like 5~6 songs and then a full album has 10 or more. bangtan’s full album last time had 14 tracks. Although usually Bangtan’s mini albums have about 9 tracks (not including the skits) so I dunno hehe~ Bangtan has their own standards and they make their own songs so there’s a lot. ^_^
I recently figures out I'm bisexual and I'm still trying to figure out how it is that I am attracted to both genders and not be confused or need to make up my mind. Any chance you could help me? P.S. I'm glad you took time off to take care of yourself.
WELL HI THERE, ANON!!!
YOU HAVE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE, BECAUSE GUESS WHICH SLIGHTLY AGGRESSIVE AFFIRMER IS BIROMANTIC?! THAT’S RIGHT, THIS ONE RIGHT FUCKING HERE RIGHT NOW!!!
YOU CAN BE ATTRACTED TO TWO OR THREE OR ANY NUMBER OF GENDERS WITHOUT BEING CONFUSED AT ALL!!! YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE TO BE ATTRACTED TO THEM IN THE SAME WAY!!! YOUR ATTRACTION MIGHT BE MORE PHYSICAL FOR ONE BUT TEND TO BE MORE OF AN EMOTIONAL ATTRACTION WITH ANOTHER GENDER!!! AND THERE’S NO CONFUSION THERE AND YOU DO NOT NEED TO MAKE UP YOUR MIND OR PLEASE ANYONE ELSE BY CONFORMING TO THEIR EXPECTATIONS!!!
I’M GONNA ASK YOU A QUESTION, MY FRIEND… WHY IS IT THAT LOTS OF PEOPLE BELIEVE BISEXUAL FOLKS ARE CONFUSED?! ON WHAT BASIS ARE WE SUPPOSED TO BE ATTRACTED ONLY TO ONE GENDER?! WHO SAYS THAT’S A THING?! AND WHAT RIGHT DID THEY HAVE TO MAKE THAT FUCKING DECISION FOR THE WHOLE OF HUMANITY?!
THIS IS YOUR LIFE, MY FRIEND!!! YOU ARE EXPERIENCING ATTRACTION TO MORE THAN ONE GENDER AND THAT’S NOBODY ELSE’S DAMN BUSINESS!!! JUST BECAUSE SOME FOLKS SAY YOU CAN ONLY BE ATTRACTED TO ONE GENDER, THAT DOESN’T MAKE THEM RIGHT!!! SOME FOLKS SAY YOU CAN ONLY BE HETEROSEXUAL AND THAT SURE AS HELL AIN’T FREAKIN’ TRUE, SO WHY WOULD THIS BI-PHOBIC “YOU’RE JUST CONFUSED” BULLSHIT BE CORRECT?!
THERE’S SOME PEOPLE WHO SAY YOU GOTTA MAKE UP YOUR MIND, BUT YOU DON’T GOTTA, AT ALL!!! WHY SHOULD YOU HAVE TO MAKE YOUR MIND UP ABOUT SOMETHING THAT IS A PREFERENCE?! NOBODY EXPECTS THAT WITH OTHER KINDS OF PREFERENCE!!! NO ONE EVER TELLS ME I GOTTA MAKE MY MIND UP ABOUT DRESSES OR T-SHIRTS!!! SOMETIMES I’M TOTALLY PSYCHED TO PUT ON A PRETTY DRESS AND OTHER TIMES I’M LIKE “THAT SHIRT HAS A PANDA ON IT, I’MMA WEAR THAT SHIT AND CHUCK ON A SKIRT!!!” SOMETIMES, I EVEN FLIP RIGHT OUT AND PUT ON A TANK TOP!!! MY FASHION PREFERENCES ARE WAY OUT OF CONTROL, AND AIN’T NOBODY EVER SAID “IT’S T-SHIRTS OR DRESSES, BITCH, JUST PICK ONE AND DRESS LIKE THAT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE!!!”
AND YOU DON’T GOTTA CHOOSE ONE GENDER FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE!!! YOU FEEL WHAT YOU FEEL AND THAT’S A-OK!!!
BISEXUALITY IS 100% REAL AND VALID AND FUCKING AWESOME!!! YOU’RE FUCKING AWESOME!!!

(Oh, and by the way, even if you some day realise you’re gay or straight or something else, that doesn’t make your bisexuality, what you are experiencing right now, any less valid. Sexuality is fluid. It can change over time. And that’s 1000% normal and okay!)
