shut up ashley

THIS! MAKES ME SO ANGRY!!!! I am actually a (almost) 19 year old fan, and i cannot control what calum does, yes BUT I also know and have lived with the effects of smoking. My grandma passed away from it, i never got to meet her. My other grandma’s best friend has lung cancer. She breathes through an oxygen tube & tank that she has to bring everywhere. They have given her a 6 months notice because she continues to use the vape pens because SHE IS SO ADDICTED. No i cannot control calum, no i do not want to upset him or make drama but YES i do care about him & his health. I dont want this to cost him his voice, or life. theres a difference between a 12 year old telling a grown man what to do, and worrying about his health.

also, here’s the lovely piece of art that I stole Syqitten’s quote from


So Skulduggery leaves Val in the car while he talks to somebody down the street. Bored with the music channel she changes stations and when Skulduggery comes back she quickly turns the radio off. Sometime later he’s in the car with Ghastly and other sanctuary officials and to break the silence Ghastly turns the radio and Monster by Kanye West blares out of the speakers and Skulduggery just sinks really low in his seat…

Okay hear me out here

So my friend who’s been trying to finish watching Reborn saw my post on my 30 day KHR Challenge and took notice that I had mentioned Gokudera on the rain flame post and so I went on to explain a bit about how Gokudera carried 5 flames and she asked a few more questions that really got me thinking more about these flames and how someone carried more than one.

We know that Xanxus has the flame of wrath which is the sun and storm flames mixed together that formed through his rage, and Lal has cloud and mist which were formed due to the curse and her rain flame becoming corrupted. But why does Gokudera have Storm, Rain, Sun, Cloud and Lightning?

We know each flame has a certain characteristic:

  • Sky: Harmony- The balance of the whole- Rain, Storm, Cloud, Sun, Mist, and Lightning, he influences, understands, and accepts all of them. Becomes the sky that captures and encompasses all.
  • Storm: Disintegration- Break apart- Defeat the enemy with a relentless stream of attacks that never falters. Always at the center of an attack, the furious storm that never rests.
  • Rain: Tranquility- Pacification- To become a blessed shower. Requiem rain, that settles conflicts and washes everything away.
  • Sun: Activation- Improve activity-  Destroying the misfortune that attacks the family with their own body, they become the sun that brightly shines upon an area.
  • Lightning: Hardening- Increase firmness- Draws the damage to themself and away from the rest of the family, serving as a lightning rod.
  • Cloud: Propagation- Increase and Replicate- To be the aloof, drifting cloud that protects the Family from an independent standpoint, and whom nothing can ever blind.
  • Mist: Construction- Illusions- Creating something from nothing, and nothing from something, thus bewildering the enemy. Rendering the family’s true form intangible with vision of deceit.

We also know that waves determine the kind of flame a person has and at times there are people that have multiple waves. 

So this is where my theory beings. I think these waves are based on personality and how a person acts, so if you think about that and the flames characteristics you get this:

  • Sky: Tsuna/Xanxus/Dino- They keep their families together, they are the leading force, they are the harmony that is needed.
  • Storm: Gokudera/Bel/Bianchi/- Always ready to kill anything that stands in their way.
  • Rain: Yamamoto/Squalo/Basil- The peacekeepers, in their own ways the keep the peace between their families.
  • Sun: Ryohei/Lussuria- They keep the family active, push them forward to do their part and making sure they’re all in tip top shape.
  • Lightning: Lambo/Levi/Gamma- (this one I have a bit of trouble understanding so I’m not entirely sure) In the most crucial moments, they are ready to shield their family.
  • Cloud: Hibari/Kikyo- The strongest of the family who prefer to work alone.
  • Mist: Mukuro/Chrome/Fran- Provide a cover when needed.

Now as we know, Gokudera holds five of these flames, and my theory as to why he does is due to the fact that he carries those five characteristics in him some how, with his most dominant characteristic being his dominant flame. Gokudera’s dominant flame is Storm, and as we know Gokudera is willing to sacrifice anything for Tsuna and destroy anything/anyone that tries to do harm on him. This is the part of Gokudera we see the most, but we also see these other four now and then.

  • Rain: Gokudera can keep the peace in the family when need be, he takes charge and helps whatever is needed and gives the reassurance someone needs. 
  • Sun: Gokudera on several occasions has been ready to sacrifice himself to protect the others around him, although at times it has been seen as more of a selfish act (ex his first fight with Gamma who he fought against with Yamamoto)
  • Lightning: Gokudera is actually the biggest shield at the moment due to Lambo being a child, so this is seen more often than any of the other flames, especially with the Sistema C.A.I
  • Cloud: As we know, Gokudera in the beginning refused to work with others, very much like Hibari, and even now that he accepts help, he performs better alone.

long story short. Gokudera carries multiple flames because he carries multiple flame traits and Storm happens to be his most dominant.
