Demon Politics 101

Last week, I was at the library, and did 5 hours worth of research on Japanese folklore and youkai, because writing. Fast forward to today. First day of class, you’d think I’d be too busy to write fanfiction? Guess what I fucking did. Here’s a snippet of ANOTHER WIP, strike me down.

(Yamato is a Kodama, basically like a dryad. He’s a spirit that inhabits a tree. Sakura is an empath getting a crash course on conflicts. General warning for tree puns and excessive worldbuilding.)

Everyone’s saying that this scene destroyed Vegeta’s badass Reputation

I disagree

Vegeta was faced with an opponent he knew he had no chance of beating. So, rather than fight and risk getting his family hurt or the planet destroyed, he puts his pride aside and appeases Bills, referring to him as Bills-Sama (An honorific used to refer to someone above oneself, or that one has great respect for.)

Later, when Bills decides, due to the Itch of being shot, to destroy the planet, Vegeta fucking Throws his pride away completely. Not even setting it aside. He  just completely forgets it for one moment to calm Bills Down.

He sacrifices the one thing he’s held above all else to protect his friends, his family, and the planet he’s come to call home

And that, my friends, is Badass.
