it is for self preservation

anonymous asked:

Hello! I reached the manga's point where Bakugou is taken by the villain and I have a question! When he sees Midoriya, he tells him to stay away. At first, I thought he was concerned for him, since he knows Midoriya is hurt, but then, the others talk about how Bakugou wouldn't want to be rescued, cause he would get angry etc. With this said, Midoriya ha as a flashback of Bakugou telling him to stay back. Now I don't know what to think about it, what do you think about that scene?

The actual translation for that scene is “Don’t Come,”

I once saw someone on JPN Twitter bothered about the translation to “Stay back” because the implications changed and came off slightly more aggressive.

The meaning is the same but with such a charged and important scene I’m sure its made to have been a balance pointing toward Deku’s self-preservation + protection. (Bakugou may not have intended it that way but the BKG rescue arc was one of the first Deku came out of a situation unscathed – BKG’s reaction forced him to think about the safest method of doing something.)

We’ve actually talked about it in depth along with other things here:

Can I request a fluffy beach day with Zen? I like your blog so much, have a nice day!

  • Where V has no sense of self preservation, Zen is completely the opposite
  • He applies and reapplies sunblocks and lotions MC definitely hasn’t heard of and cannot pronounce the ingredients in, all of the sake of making sure he doesn’t get sunburn or wrinkles.
  • He’ll probably even go so far as to layer up to shield himself from the sun and carry a parasol.
  • Zen’s nightly routine becoming twice as long because he has to condition, recondition his hair, hydrate and more
  • Zen making use of the early sunrises to go jogging and spending less and less time in his apartment because heat combined with the bad ventilation probably makes it hard on his lungs and, by extension, his complexion etc.
  • He takes MC to the coastline on something of a whim, hoping to catch the sunrise
  • The moment they actually get to the beach, that’s the end of his forward planning.
  • He’d probably emulate a lot of cheesy romantic movies and walk hand in hand with MC across the beach
  • Zen going fishing and promising to catch something great while MC sits in the shade, giving them a great spot to watch him fail miserably or succeed spectacularly (you call it)
  • Either way they get to watch him bend and flex
  • Zen taking MC on a jet ski and telling them to grip on tight if they get scared. If MC is too scared to get on with him, he’ll do tricks on the water to get their attention.
  • MC and Zen going sightseeing based on recommendations from V. He gives them the best spot to view the sunrise.
  • Zen and MC staying after sunset to watch the tides come in
  • Zen’s wilder side dying down with the summer heat, leaving him chatting honestly about his concerns for his career, his family and more

Honestly struggle to care about the story when it focuses on Seungbae, so don’t know if I’ll even bother to reblog anything this week. Two good things though:

1) Bum not selling out Sangwoo. Whether out of loyalty or just self preservation (or both) I was still glad to see it
2) I am still looking forward to next week if Sangwoo catches Seungbae in his house

I've always been really invested in the concept of Taako discovering he was gay because of a crush on Magnus during the BoB arc that he refused to act on because of his respect for Magnus' love for Julia.

OH NO… that’s extremely cute

he never ever admits to it but it manifests in taako gettin extra annoyed (see: worried) about magnus doing heroic things & rushing in with no sense of self-preservation

Realistic Self-Talk
  • This too shall pass & my life will be better.
  • I am a worthy and good person. 
  • I am doing the best I can, given my history and level of current awareness.
  • Like everyone else, I am a fallible person and at times will make mistakes and am committed to learning from them.
  • What is, is.
  • Look at how much I have accomplished, and I am still progressing.
  • There are no failures, only different degrees of success.
  • Be honest and true to myself.
  • It is OK to let myself be distressed for awhile.
  • I am not helpless. I can and will take the steps needed to get through during crisis. 
  • I will remain engaged and involved instead of isolating and withdrawing during this situation.
  • This is an opportunity, instead of a threat. I will use this experience to learn something new, to change my direction, and/or to try a new approach. 
  • Other people are responsible for their reactions to me. 
  • I can stand anything for a while because I am resilient. 
  • In the long run, who will remember or care? 
  • I see all things through the eyes of compassion.

We’ve been all over time.

fuck man, i love love love reigen as a character. everything about him is so specific and weird but simultaneously relatable/understandable.

  • he’s selfish and has a strong sense of self-preservation, but that doesn’t mean he’s an asshole and doesn’t genuinely care about other people
  • his sense of self-preservation gets thrown out of whack when mob and the other kids are involved cause he understands that he’s responsible for them, which is great
  • very vain but also super insecure, i mean that’s like my favorite character trait
  • likes classical music and falling asleep during b-movies like?? wow
  • photoshop stresses him out, v relatable
  • he’s an extrovert and he has no friends
  • he’s not actually a good liar, but he’s so persistent and he has such random good luck that it doesn’t matter
  • a con man who thinks it’s his duty to help his customers
  • lonely boy
  • tries to exercise, hurts his back
  • lightweight

it’s excellent excellent writing.


imsebastianstan: Tried a new sport today…I guess they call it “squash” Thanks #RobWilkins

😂😂😂 OMG Poor baby!!!!

The first time Nishinoya asked him out, Asahi’s insecurity made him question why somebody so optimistic would want somebody like him. Nishinoya decided to take this opportunity to help Asahi understand his reasons before he made his second attempt.

Asahi kept finding new notes long after they started dating and kept every single one as a reminder.

I used to give so much of myself to people. Ignoring my own wounds, absorbing their pain, treating their battles as my own. I gave and i gave and i gave, but to all the wrong people.

Now i’m all empty. Self-preservation, maybe. I don’t know how to get close to people without diving all the way in. I stay far away from that ledge now. I no longer allow the risk of letting myself drown.

“Why?” he asks desperately.

“Why what?” she asks tiredly.

“You walked away,” he spits out, “I want to know why?”

His voice breaks on the last syllable.

She wraps her arms around her tightly against the cold air beating around them. After a long pause she meets his gaze head on.

“You were going to break my heart.”

He lets out a short, cruel laugh and turns is eyeline skyward, “So you broke mine instead.”

I was watching my brother play xbox when I realized... professional sports teams have video games. With avatars that look just like the players and have their stats. Sooo professional exy teams could have a video games.. and when Neil and Andrew went pro they would see their little video game selves

okay so listen:

  • andrew never pays attention to literally anything going on with his exy career
  • like seriously? he goes where they tell him and does what he’s contractually obligated to do 
  • so when he had to wear a weird suit and pretend to block a bunch of fake shots he thought it was probably some weird form of monitoring his health or muscles
  • of course he doesn’t tell neil about it in their nightly skype calls becuase it’s unimportant in his mind
  • unknown to andrew, neil also did the same thing but doesn’t much care for video games so he also says nothing
  • basically a literal day after it’s happened they’ve both forgotten about it 
  • but then the game comes out 
  • and everyone starts tweeting them about it
  • and making funny vines with 6-foot whatever kevin day being checked by 5′0″” andrew minyard
  • (it’s probably some thing where you can just like assign the players any position for fun idk)
  • neil picks up on it an favorites a bunch of videos on twitter
  • (poor boy didn’t know other people could see his likes)
  • and of course matt calls neil the day it comes out
    • “neil! you didn’t tell me we’d both be in a video game together?!? how sick is that! you totally have to come over and play, bro”
  • basically neil loves it because he gets to play as andrew and ends up mimicking him as he does it 
    • “my names andrew and i squish garbage in the can until it’s too full and i refuse to take it out”
    • “hey guys, watch out! i have the ball and i’m not afraid to beam it at your ankles if you look at me the wrong way!”
    • “i’m andrew and i pretend to hate the cats but wheni think neil’s not looking i make kissy noises at them and hold them in my arms”
    • “neil’s bothering me so i’m going to pretend he’s a vegetable and pretend he doesn’t exist”
  • of course andrew catches him doing it one time when neil thought he was home alone and was playing online with matt
  • (he was home alone but had jumped into a monologue as andrew and was too distracted to hear him walk in for his weekend visit)
  • of course andrew decides to get him back by doing the same thing as neil
    • “my name is neil and i’m an idiot who has no self preservation”
    • “watch out kevin, i’m here to steal your one true love away, the court”
    • “did you guys know that i leave my socks all over the apartment becuase that’s where they belong?”
  • it definitely turns into a way for them to get out their petty aggression on one another
  • and if one of the foxes just happens to post multiple videos of it online and create a small phenomena, then that’s between them and the thousands of views
