I wonder if people remember that through his brutality and ruthlessness Neah is still a teen. Still just a kid, who just wanted to be with Mana and his beloved mother on that wheat field.
But his legacy caught up, he was torn away from his home, dropped into a conflict he inherited regardless of his will. He, Mana and Road became Noahs, he and Mana had to run for their lives after Neah attempted killing the Earl. Living in terror day by day, agonizing over when will the rest of the Noah catch up, when will it be over. They cannot run. He then killed all the Noah except for Road before the Earl caught him. The beloved brother he tried to protect devoured him. Died ate the age of 17, never having the chance to grow up.
He is back, 35 years later in the body of a dear friend who forgot about him and Neah has to and will unavoidably kill him. He is back, with only Timcanpy by his side, as Cross is gone. Tim gets destroyed and he ends up completely alone, no brother or friend to remember him, everyone after him to use or kill him. He is back knowing that no matter what’s the outcome he will only lose.
I wonder if people remember that behind the front he puts up, that he was forced to develop, people see the lonely boy broken by this war.
Whats your opinion on the headcanon that bakugou is hard of hearing because of how loud his explosions are? If you dont mind my asking
I think I answered this q on this blog already? Maybe? But anyway, I don’t exactly mind it, but I can’t say I share the headcanon myself - for one, because I’m of the opinion that their bodies are built to withstand a safe use of their quirks (a bit like you can’t break a leg by simply walking, you know), so in general I’m not a fan of headcanons that include damages caused by simply doing what their bodies were born to do?
But also because generally, even under the assumption that his body isn’t made to hold up with his explosions, isn’t it awfully convenient how only his ears take damage in these scenarios? What about his eyes? How come he can still see with no problems even with the continuous exposure to the explosions’ light? How about his hair? How come he can stand so close to fire without it ever being damaged by it? His palms have thicker skin and we know that thanks to his UA file, but what about the rest of his body? How come he can stand smack in the middle of an Howitzer Impact without getting even slightly burnt? When you say “only his ears aren’t made to withstand his explosions” what you’re telling me is that his whole body is tailord to deal with his quirk but his ears, and that just feels unrealistic to me - by which I mean, when this is the scenario we’re talking about, you can’t give the fault of the damage to Bakugou’s quirk. It’s a problem his body has, not a natural consequence of having that sort of quirk. And imho with those premises you sort of end up with a different kind of story, you’re supposed to write it differently - that’s what I think, at least
Maybe the reason Baku raises his voice so often is because he can’t hear very well, which isn’t due to his explosions, rather, he was born with bad hearing to protect him from taking damage by them.. and then his other senses are sharper to even it out, and his body can even subconsciously notice air vibrations, resulting in really fast reflexes.
Ah, this is also another reason why I’m not a huge fan of the headcanon - don’t get me wrong! If you like it then go on, I’m not trying to stop anyone from enjoying ideas and possibilities!! But personally I like Bakugou not having any reason to be loud-mouthed and rude, that’s just his personality and how the environment he grew up in made him, and lately I’ve seen the hc used to justify his behaviour more than I like? Bakugou being an asshole is just who he is, and I love it! I love that his life made him like that and I love that he’s working hard to fix that flaw, giving him an external reason, something he has no control over, to justify his personality changes the core of his character too much, and that’s not something I’d ever want to do tbh
And it’s also cool to think that he was somewhat genetically engineered to be better in a fight to compensate for a lack of earing (though again, why only his ears and not his eyes or his sense of tact too), but that goes to cut on all the hard work he put in becoming as good as he is, right? If that’s what you like than who am I to stop you! But Bakugou’s hardworking nature is one of the things I love about him, I don’t really feel like taking away from him all the effort and work he put through the years in becoming as good as he is now
The night was windless, the snow drifting straight down out of a cold black sky, yet the leaves of the heart tree were rustling his name. “Theon,” they seemed to whisper, “Theon.”
The old gods, he thought. They know me. They know my name. I was Theon of House Greyjoy. I was a ward of Eddard Stark, a friend and brother to his children. “Please.” He fell to his knees. “A sword, that’s all I ask. Let me die as Theon, not as Reek.” Tears trickled down his cheeks, impossibly warm. “I was ironborn. A son … a son of Pyke, of the islands.”
I'm sorry, I really need to vent real quick. So I saw this ant post that said "Kylo isn't some misunderstood baby who lost his way. He's the villain for a damn good reason. Ya'll do good to remember that." UM that's exactly what happened. He did lose his way. He wasn't born bad. In Leia's words, "That's when I LOST him" Keyword LOST!! And any character, even the good ones can lose their way, and become villains too. I've seen it happen with characters in other movies/tv shows. And did they
I think the ask cut off. But hold the phone.
JJ ‘bridal carry’ Abrams said the following:
“It’s more than just having a ‘bad seed’ as a kid. Snoke had targeted this kid and knew that this kid was going to be incredibly powerful in The Force and wanted him as an ally. So this mother and father had a target as a son, someone who’s watching their boy, and these parents aren’t there enough to guide him.“
And in the same interview Adam Driver:
“If you really imagine the stakes of him, in his youth, having all these special powers and having your parents kind of be absent during that process on their own agendas, [being] equally as selfish, he’s lost in the world that he was raised in, and feels that he was kind of abandoned by the people that he’s closest with. He’s angry because of that, I think, and he has a huge grudge on his shoulder.”
So for some reason I headcanon that all nephilim are intersex, and I’m just thinking poor Sam because of course one of the first questions people ask is “is it a boy or a girl?” And Sam just has to be like “No? Neither?” And of course people misunderstand like “Oh you want it to be a surprise, huh?”
Just basically Sam wanting to wring someone’s neck and passing on question-answering duty to Cas.
I am speaking for myself (& many other trans men) but not all. This is my perspective of why dating a straight trans man is more difficult than cisgender relationships. It takes a strong woman to date a man like me. Some days I stare at the mirror and want to cry because I’m so happy with the way I look…and others it feels like I can see the tiniest reminder of the woman I used to be and it rocks me for the rest of the day in the worst way. From “feminine” eyes to the shape of my teeth. These things sound so irrational and peculiar but to me they take away from my idea of my own manhood. I am a 5′3 108lb trans man. My height and body mass taunt me daily and some days I’m at ease with it—others I ask why did I do this to myself if I could never be the picture perfect man. Thats when I realize that all men don’t get to choose those things, they’re born into it just as I have been. Some days I take my T shot and I feel on top of the world and like nothing could touch me. Other days I’m pissed off and easily agitated or will even start a fight for no reason. I am still learning 10 months in how to control hulking out and acting on these hormone changes but it’s incredibly difficult some days. I am a work in progress. I am learning to not care if someone judges me for the things I cannot change. I am learning to be grateful for the long walk it took to get here. I am learning to love this second chance, second body god is allowing me and to appreciate all the little changes along the way. That being said…what does it take to date a trans man? Patience. Some days we will have it harder than others. It takes a woman who understands this and doesnt take our moods personally–if we could control them most times, we would. It takes a woman who can reassure us of our insecurities. Stupid things like commenting on muscles or facial hair sound so stupid but mean so much when we’ve been fighting for these things to feel whole. Dating a trans man means seeing us as what we are, a MAN. Just because some of us do not have a dick does not make us any less. You’re not a lesbian for dating us if we have a vagina. Thats the most annoying concept I keep hearing. If a self proclaimed lesbian decides to date a trans man, leave them alone about it. If a straight girl dates a trans man, leave them alone about it. They are dating a MAN and can label themselves however they see fit. It takes a strong woman to know what trans men go through, how others perceive and judge us sometimes, and to still take us on. That person is opening themselves up to judgment too. So if a woman is dating a trans man…realize she is one of the strongest weapons this world has. Because she knows how to take a hit from her own man and from society for this choice and still loves both through it. She touches chest scars and makes them beautiful. She sits on the floor beside him when a grown man is in tears struggling with dysphoria. She holds his hand through surgeries. she often times is the hand pushing the syringe with hormones for us. She is a warrior, a strong soul, and one of the most beautiful gifts a trans man ever receives…the love of a woman who never gives up on us.
wait what the heck you're 24?!?!? that's a perfectly normal age to have a baby, with all these anons being so rude i thought you were like 18-19 (which would still be unacceptable to act like that, of course) my parents were right around 23-24 when i was born and yeah i'd say that's on the younger side but i never thought they were like suuuuuper young or anything. nothin wrong w/younger parents as long as everyone knows what they're getting into, but you can apply that to older parents as well!
Like. A great deal of people have their first child in their mid twenties. Alex is younger, at 21, but even then he’s not a child. It’s ridiculous.
