Touka’s look of despair in this panel makes me come up with several possibilities.
The first one is that Dragon had killed everyone surrounding her but Touka, leaving her in despair because she thought she was about to be swallowed up by this monster just like others too. Given that at this moment she just met Dragon for the first time and could not immediately recognize this is Kaneki, but just another threat for all ghouls, she could be thinking this was her last moment before she died.
The second one, though unlikely, is that she knew this was Kaneki, and was forced to watch him slaughter people in a rage without being able to stop him. I consider this unlikely because Kaneki’s Dragon form right now can hardly make anyone even know it was him except Furuta, but still a possibility nevertheless. If that is the case, this might hit Touka hard because she knew her father had also gone crazy from trying to gain power for revenge, resulting in him being captured and losing his mind just like Kaneki is right now.
The third one is sort of similar to the first one, but instead Kaneki had only killed the CCG squad facing Touka and the remaining ghouls in chapter 143, and the other ghouls were actually in front of Touka instead of behind her back, while she turned her back to temporarily shield them from Dragon, again because she had yet to recognize him. I doubt Kaneki would hurt Touka, the only one he had been looking for while going through this rampage, since his position right now looks more like he is surrounding her to protect her from danger, but the other people’s safety is not guaranteed at all.
Extra note, Kaneki’s human form might actually make an appearance in this chapter too, in the round bubble beside Touka.
This panel looks like an egg to me, and since Kaneki’s story also follows the “Black Goat’s Egg”, in the next chapter we might actually see him emerging from this “egg” he was in to go to Touka. As for how his attitude would be towards everything he had done, I have no concrete assumption to make at all. People speculate him to be absolutely wrecked, devastated by what he had done, but that is Kaneki from part 1 when he accidentally stabbed Banjou and tormented himself over it. But chapter 144 showcased a very clear change in his personality and outlook towards life, when his thoughts were all about eradicating everything in his way including himself and Ishida’s illustration of him wearing the eyepatch on his human eye might represent a disconnection from his humanity.
Nothing is for certain until the next chapter is out or when Kaneki returns to his sense, but oh boy whatever the outcome is would not be pretty at all. And if he had not attacked Touka even when he went berserk and lost his control, then she might be one of the only few people who can talk some sense into him right now.

-As a child, before he even knew what trans was or that he even was a boy, he tried really hard to be like other girls. He tried to imitate what other girls would do like play with dolls or even obsess of ponies and things of the sort. He just didn’t understand why he wasn’t like the other little girls so he tried to imitate them to fit in and not be “weird”
-Even if he tried to fit in with the girls, he still wanted to be “one of the boys”
-Once he got his hands on some craft scissors and chopped off all his hair, it was a terrible jagged cut, with no way of fixing it aside from just buzzing it, but he felt so much better. No one was really happy with him though
-When he got into the garrison, he had everything legally changed over. He changed his name to Keith on his birth certificate.
-He bought tons of binders and started T. The Garrison was even nice enough to help fund his transition
-Unfortunately, he became a paladin of voltron before he could get top surgery and he only brought the clothes on his back (the one binder)
-Keith usually keeps an extra binder in the pouches on his hips, but due to spontaneity, he didn’t have any on his random space trip to the castle ship
I’ll probably come up with more eventually, these are just the ones that I’ve been thinking up for awhile. I also am trying to work on a fanfic with trans Keith in it. Like, people, do you understand how much I love trans Keith??? I’m always down to talk trans Keith
@buckyflowercrown I hope that you enjoy these haha these are just some that I’ve had in mind for some time now

“I’m in the mood for cookies today,” you spoke aloud. “What do you think, Tessa?”
The adorable staffy simply rolled over onto her back and panted.
“I’ll take that as a yes,” you laughed, kissing her on the head and moving into the enormous kitchen. You hooked your phone up to the speaker sitting on the breakfast bar, and shuffled through a playlist before settling on some indie song. You got out all the ingredients for baking cookies–flour, sugar, butter, and a ton of chocolate chips.
You flicked on the oven, and began mixing the ingredients from the recipe you knew by heart, absentmindedly singing along to the song.
You had been roommates with Tom Holland and Harrison Osterfield for only a few short months, but you had hit it off from the start with the two of them. Tom, being the brand new face of Spider-Man, took Haz with him on the six month press tour around the globe. They had made a stop here in Montreal to check on you and Tessa, whom you had been looking after while they were away. Needless to say, you and the pup got along very well.
They were in Australia, the last you remembered. Or was it Austria? Shrugging, you started assembling the cookie dough into their shapes as a new song started playing–one that you only liked listening to alone, or on a dance floor. The sexy, female crooning filled the kitchen, the seductive beat making you sway your hips and rock your shoulders. You pushed the cookies into the oven, and moved to turn up the volume of the song.
Tessa gave a puppy tilt of her head as you slid around the kitchen, putting on an incredibly sultry show for no one in particular, you just wanted to have fun. Plus: empty house, no roommates. You were free to do whatever you pleased.
You had the music so loud that you didn’t hear the front door open and slam closed, or the sound of two people coming down the hall and standing in the wide opening into the kitchen, staring open-mouthed at you dressed in the bare minimum, dancing to Partition by Beyoncé.
Harrison cleared his throat loudly, and Tom just couldn’t stop staring.
You whirled around, cheeks flaring up with embarrassment, and as soon as the song ended the oven dinged, the kitchen plummeting into silence. All that was missing were crickets.
“What are you doing home?” you squeaked, crossing your arms over your chest.
“Ah,” Harrison started, swallowing nervously. “Tour ran short–we sent you a message.”
Tom still was dumbstruck. You averted your eyes and pulled the sheet of cookies out of the oven, setting them on the counter to cool. “I–uh–made a batch of these.”
“Sweet,” Haz spoke, dropping his bag and his attention on you, moving to the counter and picking up a cookie. “These are my favorite, how did you know?”
You refused to look at Tom, so your gaze landed on Tessa panting in the middle of the kitchen, seemingly having a smile on her cute little face.
“I’m gonna–go change…and then clean up here,” you managed to get out, sliding by the boys and scrambling up the stairs and into your room. You shut the door and collapsed against it, not believing all of that actually happened. You kept seeing the surprised, dumbfounded look on Tom’s face–he had never looked at you like that and you…you liked it. A lot.
We all know that Aelin never tells anyone her sneaky, twisted plans. So i bet my fucking ass that this was her plan all along. She knew that the khagan had spies. She knew that he would find out about Celaena Sardothien. She knew that it would be hard to convince him of their cause and that he likely wouldn’t accept the jewels and treasures. But she gave them to Chaol anyway, because she knew he would find a way to use them to to their advantage and boy, he did.
On another note, she also wrote to Hasar. This and the above point make me wonder, just how many more of her schemes are secretly unfolding without our knowledge?
