why do so many people say for forever is a gay song
it’s not gay it’s actually really sad and making it about gay shipping (of someone who is alone and just wants a friend with someone who unfortunately is dead by this song) completely diminishes the whole purpose of the song and really erases evan’s true feelings and his longing for friendship because he feels so alone
it especially rubs me the wrong way when people make it gay because it’s evan telling a false version of his suicide attempt yet people are like “omg it’s so gay xD”
Church canonically has dissociative identity disorder. In canon, they use the old term, “multiple personality disorder,” but it’s the same thing. Church has DID.
“Like reverse-engineering a multiple personality disorder.” - Wash, in season 6, chapter 16.
I also believe it’s mentioned one other time, but I can’t quite remember when. If anyone remembers, please let me know.
Church also has C-PTSD, or Complex PTSD. It’s a different, more recently added version (if i recall correctly) of PTSD that describes the effects of prolonged trauma rather than just one event.
symptoms include: difficulty with regulating emotion (bouts of depression, suicidal thoughts, explosive anger, etc) dissociation feelings of helplessness/shame/guilt (“This green indicates a high level of anger stemming from suppressed feelings of inadequacy.”) isolation/distrust of others a repeated search for a rescuer (“That’s why you made me, Church. You made me to take on all the things you can’t handle. Just like you always have.”) feelings of hopelessness/despair (“They presented Alpha with scenario after scenario of stress and danger.” “They made it seem like his failures were hurting all of the people he cared about, and there was nothing he could do about it. It drove him mad. Broke him down even more.”)
Alpha Church was abused, created other personalities in his mind to protect himself from the abuse, finally put all memories of the abuse into one of those personalities and forgot about it completely (that’s DID). Then he lived the rest of his life with symptoms of C-PTSD because of the trauma, but couldn’t heal because he had no way of accessing those memories.
Then Epsilon came around, with C-PTSD and DID as well, except he got to learn about his trauma, face it, develop a strong relationship with the fragments(alters, in DID terms) that the Director had taken from Alpha, and heal/recover
Church (both Alpha and Epsilon) is canonically mentally ill. Please don’t ignore this.
~Legend says a Goddess watches over each clan. The Healing Goddess, Sakura, in charge of the Hatake clan was once disguised as the koi the Hatake clan has taken care of way back when Konoha was founded. Being the last of the Hatake, Sakura must take care of Kakashi in order to make sure his line continues [wink wonk]. But he has to prove himself worthy of her presence; else she becomes another clan’s Goddess.~
I also don’t know why a Goddess would hold a scalpel but I love the idea of her threatening people (Kakashi) with it when she’s pissed
