Giorno’s character

Vento Aureo suffers from the same main character problem in Stardust Crusaders and Diamond is Unbreakable (the latter is forgiven since it’s a slice of life type of story) so its rather understandable that people don’t view him as main protagonist, and I agree with that. However, saying he has no personality, I have to disagree. I think Araki tries to be subtle with Giorno’s character, as opposed to other jojos who has noticeable quirks (with the exception of johnny). So, this is my interpretation of my favourite jojo (giogio)’s personality, abilities and weaknesses. 

  • He has his own set of morals (He has no qualms in committing petty crimes, but he draws the line on taking someone’s life. Though, he doesn’t hesitate to kill for self defense)
  • He has great deductive skills. He’s able to deduce someone’s character and thought process just by looking at their actions.
  • He’s incredibly perceptive, the first to notice something is wrong. 
  • He hates involving other people in his problems (normal citizens, for example)
  • He’s usually cautious and methodical in making judgements, but when in panic/despair, he tends to make rash decisions (E.g: In the White Album fight, he drove into the canal to buy time and urges Mista to swim to the shore, without accounting that Ghiaccio is still in the water and could freeze Mista should he attempt to dive into the water.)
  • He’s willing to gamble his own life to achieve his goal (Whether it’s to win his peer’s trust or defeating the enemy)
  • He values life and trust greatly (see no. 1 and no. 5)
  • While he’s always seen serious in the company of others, when left alone he becomes more expressive.
  • His overly cautious and complex thinking leads to him having trouble with simple problems ( E.g: When his lighter from Polpo had its fire extinguished, he struggled on what to do instead of reigniting it.)
  • He adapts and follows the rules rather than fighting it, though he still follows his own code (He’s respectful against his senior, Abbacchio, though he will argue with him when he has a different opinion.)
  • He has a habit of making outlandish ideas (Putting a lighter on top of a bread, stealing 100 cars, etc) thanks to his rather complex thought process. (this applies to every jojo, to be honest).
  • He is confident and has a great understanding of his skills.
  • He has vast knowledge in biology (Vaccines, human anatomy, plant and animal behaviour, etc)
  • His ultimate dream is to become a gang-star, like his hero : help making other people’s life better, just like his hero made his. This includes exterminating corruptions, drugs, anything he deems unfit for Italy.

There’s probably still more, but this is what I can gather. Feel free to add more. Hopefully the anime will add more to this.

They steal your bread, then give you a crumb of it…
Then they demand you to thank them for their generosity…
O their audacity!

  • Akira: Criminals? Is that how you see us?
  • Akira: Is it a crime to steal bread to feed your family? Or sell some weed so you can buy video games? Or steal video games because you smoked all that weed you were going to sell?
  • Akechi: Yes, all of those are crimes.
  • Akira: Damn. Even the bread one?
  • Akechi: Especially the bread one.
If ever in the midst of your running, you glance over your shoulder and hope to cling to what you must forsake, you will soon realize that you have a decision to make. Do you want Jesus or do you want the world? You cannot have both. But remember this: Christ comes to the threshold of your life, with arms wide open, shouting, ‘You must love me more! You must love me more!’ He knows the world will fail you in every devastatingly possible way, but He will never do the same. So, when the world tempts you, turn your head around to face the light once again. Abandon hesitation and replace it with haste. Run faster than ever before.

Enemies Turned Lovers Prompts

This was not requested, but I made another prompts list called Best Friends Turned Lovers which you can check out if you like, and I felt like compiling some of my personal favorites from the enemies turned lovers trope as well. I hope these inspire you!

  1. “It’s hard to remember we aren’t in a competition anymore.” 
  2. “Do we like…hold hands now?”
  3. “Sorry, this is just really different from our constant arguing.” 
  4. “I didn’t ever think we’d be here, like this.”
  5. Write about an angel being held captive in hell who falls in love with a demon.
  6. “I don’t fall in love with people very often, I just can’t believe it was you. Out of everyone, you just had to steal my heart. That’s very rude, you know, to steal?” 
  7. An angel sent to destroy the one prophesied to bring the world’s destruction falls in love with them instead.
  8. Person A is from a rich family, intelligent and has a sharp tongue. One day, they snuck out to the poor district, curious. They met Person B, strong and independent, who clearly hates the people of the rich district. Not knowing Person A’s real identity, they both became fast friends, running around on top of rooftops at night, stealing breads from vendors only to give them to the beggars and telling each other stories while laying side by side in the flower meadow.
  9. “I keep forgetting that we got over this ages ago.”
  10. “Isn’t it strange to think that just a while back, we were always fighting?”
  11. “I don’t even remember why were fighting.”
  12. “We still have issues to work around, but we’ll get over it.”
  13. “I’m trying to decide if this thing I did is incredibly stupid or…”“What happened? What did you do?”“Well…I fell in love with you.”
  14. “You know nothing about me.”“Oh, but I do. I know you want adventure, that’s why you’re here standing in front of me. You want to rebel like everyone else. You want mystery in your life, passion, romance… and maybe even a little danger.”
  15. “This should be against some sort of rule.”
  16. “How could this happen? They’re so…so pure. Ugh.”
  17. “They’re kind to everyone, even me. I guess that was my weakness all along.”
  18. “All I ever wanted was for someone to respect me. When they did exactly that, I knew I was doomed.” 
  19. “Please don’t say you love me.” 
  20. “You know I can’t say it, but surely you understand how I feel?”

Summary: Jungkook and I want to test the waters before we start anything serious.

Masterlist | previous part

It was Monday; first out of five days which were going to determine whether Jungkook and I could be friends or not. We had five days to test the waters before we could proceed with our arrangement. By Friday, we would either start our sexual adventure or just settle for that one time thing we had already shared. Regardless of the outcome, I was excited. It was new to me, and I just couldn’t help but smile whenever I thought about it.
