I went to the mall today and saw this in the bathroom. I was absolutely shocked. This is the first time I’ve ever seen one of these machines. Obviously, we all have seen the ones that cost 25 cents but these were FREE. IS THIS THE START OF GOVERNMENT FINALLY PAYING FOR OUR “non-essential luxury goods”????? I WANT TO SEE THESE EVERYWHERE IN THE NEAR FUTURE ESPECIALLY IN SCHOOLS !! IT WILL SAVE SO MANY GIRLS PANIC AND STRESS ABOUT RANDOMLY HAVING THEIR PERIOD OR FORGETTING THEIR PADS/TAMPONS !!!!
Some things to keep in mind about Japan’s third-best ace.
Ushijima Wakatoshi is:
Powerfully built, physically and mentally strong, and intimidating.
Very good at volleyball.
Rightfully confident in his abilities as an ace.
Earnestly arrogant about his skills, in the sense that he knows he’s good and isn’t afraid to invoke his skills, but his arrogance has no trace of malice. Oikawa and Iwaizumi note this precisely (which is actually why they get more irritated at him).
Blunt because he is naive and socially awkward.
Straightforward and honest.
Quite literal and not well-versed in social intelligence or interactions.
A good captain.
Enduring and patient.
Usually calm, reserved, and focused.
Motivated by two things: the desire to be a player other people can rely on, and a fantastic player that makes his father proud.
Loved very, very much by his doting father.
So earnestly awkward it’s adorable and kind of dorky - like, the guy uses weird metaphors, takes everything literally, doesn’t know anything about pop culture but answers Tendou’s questions anyway, and drinks out of juice boxes.
Loved and admired by his team.
Friends with Tendou Satori, even if he’s often dragged along in his wake.
Formal when he speaks.
Keen and perceptive when it comes to his own weaknesses.
Knows what he needs to work on to improve.
Keen and perceptive when it comes to his other teammates and can pick out their individual strengths and weaknesses.
Actually pretty motivating and encouraging, much to the surprise of … everyone.
Good at maximizing the efficiency of each player.
Fascinated, confused, and enraged by the uniquely brilliant skills Kageyama and Hinata display.
Ushijima Wakatoshi is not:
Mean or malicious.
Not obsessed with Oikawa despite what literally everyone thinks. He admires Oikawa’s skills to the point that he thinks Oikawa can contribute to his team, but he doesn’t want to stalk Oikawa either.
I don’t know why it is, but I think before the Shiratorizawa match took place, people had this perception of him as a tall, cruel, looming giant who’s confident and suave with his words and hellbent on stealing Oikawa away from Seijoh. He is, in fact, literal and blunt because he doesn’t know any better, pretty encouraging, and kind of like an overgrown cinnamon roll who needs to learn how to interact with his friends and teammates and opponents properly. He loves his dad and his team, and obviously he’s going to want what’s best for it. He doesn’t mince his words, but when he told Oikawa that his skills were “wasted” on Seijoh, he wasn’t trying to be cruel. It is in Ushijima’s nature to be earnest and straightforward. I think it’s important to distinguish between Ushijima, who is legitimately just earnest, blunt, socially naive, and encouraging, and people who genuinely believe that they’re superior to everyone else, cruel, and dishonest. Let’s stop seeing and portraying Ushijima as enemy #1, Oikawa’s stalker, the cruelest dude to ever exist, or the source of all of Oikawa’s angst/unhappiness (because let’s face it, Oikawa’s source of potential unhappiness is the entirety of Shiratorizawa, not just Ushijima, and Oikawa beautifully overcomes that).
can you draw davepetajohn or nepjohn please? (im not sure if my first ask went through so im asking again, but if it did ignore this one.)
So I know this ask has been laying in my inbox for way too long but I just didn’t know how to go about it. I like all the suggested characters but let’s be honest, I’m too lazy to draw three individual people so um… davepetasprite it is. I hope you don’t mind ^^“
