look at all that awesomeness

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH WHAT A GOOD CHAPTER

FIRST THE COLORSPREAD. THE KIDS ALL LOOK SO COOL AHHHHH THEY’RE ALL DIRTIED AND DISHEVELED AND THEIR CLOTHES ARE ALL RIPPED BUT THEY ALL JUST LOOK SO CONFIDENT AND REASSURED AND PROUD OF THEMSELVES LIKE THEY JUST GOT OUT OF A DIFFICULT BATTLE AND WON AND THEY ALL JUST LOOK SO AWESOME ESPECIALLY MY SON

AND THEN THE CHAPTER

THE DAD MIGHT. THE DAD MIGHT IS SO PREVALENT IN THIS CHAPTER AHHHHHH ALL MIGHT KNEW HE MIGHT DIE SOON BUT THEN HE MET IZUKU AND HE GOT TO KNOW THIS WEIRD QUIRKLESS FANBOY KID AND IZUKU WORMED HIS WAY INTO TOSHINORI’S HEART AND HE ABSOLUTELY THOUGHT HE WOULD DIE WHEN FIGHTING ALL FOR ONE BUT IZUKU WAS THERE IZUKU WAS THERE HE COULDN’T DIE YET HE HAD TO CONTINUE, HE HAD TO KEEP FIGHTING ON FOR IZUKU

TOSHI REMEMBERED INKO’S WORDS TO HIM, “PLEASE KEEP ON LIVING

AND NOW TOSHI ISN’T SURE THAT FATE IS BEING CHANGED NO MATTER WHAT HE DOES OR HOW HARD HE TRIES, EVEN THO HE WANTS TO  KEEP LIVING AND NURTURING IZUKU LIKE HE PROMISED BUT IZUKU DECIDED TO TWIST FATE WITH HIM, BECAUSE NO HIS MENTOR CAN’T DIE HE CAN’T NOT WHEN HE HASN’T SHOWN THE WORLD THAT “HE’S HERE” YET, AND EVEN LONG AFTER THAT

FUCK I LOVE STORIES ABOUT TWISTING FATE I LOVE STORIES THAT SAY “YOU KNOW WHAT? FUCK THIS PREDESTINED BULLSHIT, I CONTROL MY FATE, NO ONE ELSE” AND TOSHINORI WAS LOSING A BIT OF HOPE IN THAT REGARD BUT IZUKU REFUSES TO LET THIS HAPPEN AND TOGETHER THEY’LL CHANGE FATE EVEN IF IT IS IMPOSSIBLE, THEY’LL DO IT

(AND THIS CHAPTER BROUGHT UP JUST HOW HARD A LIFE TOSHINORI LIVED UNTIL NOW, GIVING HIS LIFE FOR THE WORLD AND FOR THE PEOPLE WHO LIVED IN IT, AND AS NOBLE AS THAT INTENTION IS IT ISN’T GOOD FOR THE LONG RUN AND IZUKU IS LEARNING FROM TOSHINORI’S MISTAKES, THAT HE CAN’T BE A HERO LIKE THAT, HE NEEDS TO BE ONE WHO CAN KEEP ON LIVING, ONE WHO LOOKS INTO THE LONG TERM, NOT ONE WHO SACRIFICES EVERYTHING ABOUT HIS WELL-BEING TO SAVE PEOPLE IN THE MOMENT, NO WONDER NIGHTEYE WAS TRYING TO DISSUADE HIM FROM THAT LINE OF THOUGHT THE OTHER CHAPTER)

AND THEN AAAHHHHHHHHHHHH URARAKA AND TSUYU HELPED TAKE DOWN TWO HUGE AS FUCK VILLAINS AND THEY LOOKED SO FUCKING AWESOME OKAY THEY WERE SO AWESOME MY AMAZING AND WONDERFUL DAUGHTERS ARE TERRIFYING AND POWERFUL AND AMAZING AND AHHHHHH

I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT 

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
