Words: 7169 Universe: Mastermind Naegi AU (and as you’d expect, this has DR spoilers) A/N: (Dedicated to Tumblr user Jinjojess, for letting me use a few of her Despaircest ideas. Now there’s a great writer who knows her Dangan Ronpa. I hope this is a fraction as good.)
I was born average and brought the goddamn world to its knees.
They were wrong in thinking I didn’t have any regrets. At first, I was wary of what I was doing, but even with wiped memories they persisted. Oowada’s punch, Togami’s… just being Togami. It always struck me as a thing of beauty that even the idol picked me as an easy target- it’s why I threw myself in the mix to begin with.
“Naegi can’t be the mastermind,” they said mostly to themselves as if I would jump in and prove otherwise. Of course it couldn’t be me. Me, the average one, the one who believed the world could spin without a few Super High School Levels. They took my silence as agreement. I smiled.
