LET HIM FINISH HIS ANSWER DAMMIT WHY IS SENSEI SUCH A TEASE.
Okay, but I’ve wanted to know this FOREVER and I can’t help but speculating, because even his cut off answer of “Well, a long time ago I-” contradicted most of my previous assumptions.
MY PREVIOUS GUESS: Okay so there are those preliminary character sketches that sensei did of Shouji’s face and I’ve lost it now, but he basically had a dinosaur-y looking mouth, so I thought he might’ve been made of fun of it or something?
But that doesn’t make much sense because heroes are the MAJORITY in bnha’s society, and there are so many mutant-ish body forms that come with the quirks that I feel like it would be weird if Shouji was made fun for it. And, also, if that was the reason, his answer was fairly nonchalant, so there’s probably not a lot of trauma behind the reason of his mask.
ALSO he said “a long time ago” and if he did keep the dinosaur mouth in his preliminary design, he probably would’ve had it from birth and he wouldn’t have just decided to wear it “a long time ago” UNLESS it’s referring to how he decided to start wearing it? But all I can think of was that it was bullied into it or something, and again, the nonchalant answer contradicts.
OR SECOND GUESS: That his mouth just looked so dang scary that he decided to start wearing it for sort of the same reason that blind people wear glasses just because other people are bothered by their eyeballs OTL and I guess that still might still be applicable because Shouji seems like a pretty chill dude and I can his decision “oh shoot the kids are kinda scared of my mouth, maybe I should cover it up” not being a really traumatic one for him.
Sherlock could have played the waltz he wrote for John and Mary, but he didn’t. He chose to play Irene’s theme, the music he wrote forthe womanhe thought was dead…the woman he later went on to save and have a passionate night with after he saved her from being beheaded..the woman whom he texts when nights are long and perhaps boring...the woman who texted him on this birthday…
I: I love this story and I want to keep it forever more in my head. Did you go to do some, just to have a little play around and see, with Damon Albarn to come up with a song? Did he bash it on the piano and go: “Are you made up a song yet?”
L: I mean, I love Damon. But he’s like really annoying, when it comes to music. Because he’s like: “Oh, I’m such a musician” and, yeah, brilliant.
The way I work is that I put on a piano loop and just keep looping it around, so I can listen to it over and over and come up with something.
And he was like: “No, no. I don’t work with computers”
And I’m like: “Uhm, you’re in the Gorillaz, I think you might do.”
So, basically, I was sitting on the sofa and Damon’s on the piano in front of me and he was just playing the same thing over and over again! And then just go: “Got anything yet?”
And I was like: “No….”
And I was wearing this pink shirt with like three buttons and I stood up and it must’ve been some weird angle, so all three buttons came undone at the same time. So I was standing up and my boobs were hanging out and I was like: “Well, this was a brilliant day!”
Me on my birthday:
oh boy this cake looks delicious I can't wait until we can dig in!!
what if I can't blow out all the candles in one breath? I'll be a laughing stock, I'll never live it down. people will look at me with thinly veiled disgust as they see me struggle to push out the last puffs of air from my lungs to get that one stubborn candle. spit is everywhere. my ancestors are watching in disappointment. past me's line up to mock my inability to progress with the candles. I am dishonered
