otp: you're totally my hero

i’ve made a post about this before but man, i need to talk about this again

peter petrelli’s scar being the cosmic marker for “yes okay this is a doomed timeline you can travel back to change it now”

all the gang living in a crapsack future staring at peter’s face like “FUCKING COME ON, GET MESSED UP SO WE CAN GO FIX THIS”

several timelines involve causes of injury to which he will never admit because they were really dumb horribly embarrassing accidents

one time claire goes after him with a cleaver, like “it’s just like a band-aid, peter, rip it off and get it over with”

“I DON’T WANT A KNIFE IN MY HEAD”

“it’s the only thing that’ll stick! suck it up!”
