How Kirishima May Be the Traitor (Traitor Theory)

I wrote a post a while back speculating Kirishima’s past. While doing so, I noticed that it’s possible for Kirishima to be the traitor. Some of this is rehashing what I said when I speculated Kirishima’s past. Although, everything I’ll talk about are reasons or support for why or how Kirishima may be the traitor.

I know this opinion is not going to be a popular one. Some people have dismissed the idea of Kirishima being the traitor, especially after Kirishima’s character development during the Internship Arc. However, after skimming through the manga and after reading the most recent chapters, I actually think Kirishima is the one who’s most likely to be the traitor. I’m not saying he is the traitor, but there are signs pointing to Kirishima possibly being the traitor.

Even if Kirishima is the traitor, he is still probably a good guy, and if he worked for the villains, he meant well. He has always had good values. The series has made that clear. Unfortunately, someone may have convinced him back when he was around middle school-aged that the villains are on the side of good and the heroes are harming society. I’ll explain more about it later as I show some evidence.

As I mentioned in a previous post, Kirishima really empathizes with a villain.

Kirishima feels like he understands what the villain is going through and is even willing to tell the villain his backstory AFTER that same villain shot his senpai and put Kirishima and other civilians in danger. A part of that has to do with Kirishima being a really nice guy and another part has to do with Kirishima understanding the need to become stronger. However, Kirishima’s empathy feels too strong for just that. I think he understands the villain because Kirishima was once part of the villains too.

First of all, Kirishima was different before entering U.A.

He makes an appearance in the chapter three according to Horikoshi.

Even though Kirishima is supposed to be in chapter three, if you go through chapter three, you won’t find anyone with Kirishima’s familiar spiky hair. Instead, you find a black-haired individual who has hair that looks like Kirishima’s hair when it’s down and a Quirk that’s very similar to Kirishima’s.

For some odd reason, it looks like Kirishima suddenly changes his appearance before entering U.A. This isn’t the only evidence of Kirishima being a different person from when he was in middle school. In middle school, he also bought the same keyholder as Tokoyami, hinting that in middle school, he had similar, darker interests to Tokoyami.

Kirishima may have changed from a darker appearance to the heroic persona we know now. It’s possible that if he was part of the villains before entering U.A., he had this dark appearance back in middle school and then changes himself to blend in with the U.A. hero students. He’d be less suspicious if he looks and acts more like a hero. It’d make being a spy for the villains easier. He may have based his appearance on Crimson Riot.

Kirishima also really makes strong attempts to befriend Bakugou even though Bakugou doesn’t have a heroic personality.

Kirishima wants to befriend Bakugou despite his more villainous personality, even back when other classmates don’t like Bakugou because of his mean personality. Kirishima is a friendly guy and likes Bakugou’s “manly” behavior, but Kirishima may also understand and relate to Bakugou’s personality. Kirishima may have been around villains and understands their personalities, so Kirishima understands Bakugou pretty well and even relates to him since he was a villain himself. Bakugou’s personality also may have made Bakugou a candidate to becoming a villain himself. Kirishima may have gotten close to Bakugou so that he can recruit Bakugou into the League of Villains. Kirishima may have recommended Bakugou to the villains, and this may be one of the reasons the villains captured Bakugou at training camp.

During the months Kirishima spends at U.A., he may start to realize heroes aren’t the bad guys and that he wants to be a hero himself. He even grows to care for his classmates. Even so, Kirishima would still be on the villains’ side until Bakugou gets captured.

When he hears the villains are after Bakugou, he’s devastated. His reaction to Bakugou’s capture is really important. Even though he may have wanted Bakugou to be part of the League of Villains, he may not have thought the villains would capture Bakugou by force. This would cause Kirishima to finally acknowledge the villains are not the good guys, and he feels immense guilt about Bakugou’s capture.

Kirishima feels so much guilt, that he wants to rescue Bakugou.

It’s kind of odd how Kirishima really blames himself for Bakugou getting capture even though he’s supposedly the least involved with the actual capture. He isn’t with Midoriya and Todoroki when Bakugou gets captured. This whole thing isn’t his responsibility, yet Kirishima feels REALLY guilty about Bakugou getting captured.

Kirishima may have told the villains the location of the training camp by using his cellphone as a tracking device.

He brings his cellphone to training camp. Once at camp, during the night time, he may have helped the villains raid the camp.

On the night the villains attack, he’s one of the few students not shown sleeping.

One of the boys’ beds is empty, hinting that a boy is out and possibly helping the villains.

Later, Kirishima is notably more tired than almost everyone if not more tired than everyone. (That may be because of the remedial lessons though.)

Keep in mind, Kirishima is one of the few students not shown to fighting villains during the training camp raid or getting hurt by them. He was trapped in the main lodge with the rest of the remedials.

It would have been difficult for him to help the villains because he can’t leave the lodge. In the panels above, he wants to leave to stop the villains from capturing Bakugou.

If Kirishima helps the villains invade the training camp, then it would probably be the last time Kirishima helps the villains. He may have officially turned on them when he decides to rescue Bakugou. He possibly even stole night vision goggles from the villains in order to do so.

Kirishima is evasive when it comes to the origin of those night vision goggles. They probably came from somewhere Kirishima isn’t proud of. He won’t even quickly tell Midoriya about where he got the night vision goggles from and seems pretty guilty after Bakugou gives him back money for it. Kirishima overall looks suspicious when it comes to the night vision goggles.

Now, who would have convinced a good guy like Kirishima to be part of the villains? It would be someone close to Kirishima. My guess is it’s a relative. It may possibly be the rock villain from the League of Villains. 

And that villain looks similar to Kirishima during Red Riot Unbreakable.

Mangacap by @hizashi

Who is this villain who Kirishima may be close to? My guess is it’s someone who’s two years older than Kirishima, an older brother possibly.

mangacap by @hizashi

Neijire says Togata got rough with someone and caused that person to quit being a hero. That person caused a lot of problems later. When Neijire says this, the manga shows Kirishima up close twice, hinting that the person who Togata got too rough with may be someone Kirishima knows. I’m guessing the kid who quit is a classmate or someone who’s around Togata’s age. That person may be the rock villain mentioned before. If that person became a villain because of Togata, then he possibly has a huge grudge against heroes and thinks they are harmful to society. If he’s close to Kirishima, he possibly helped turn Kirishima into a villain and encourage Kirishima to work with villains like him. If someone close to Kirishima was hurt by the heroes and tried convincing Kirishima to join the villains, Kirishima would be likely to join the villains to fight against the heroes who he thinks is harming society, especially if the person who was hurt by the heroes is his brother or some other close relative. Kirishima would have been in middle school if he joined the villains. That is such a young and impressionable age. He could have meant well and was trying to help make society a better place by joining the villains because those around him told him so. The villains possibly convinced him that the heroes were pushing the poor criminals down and holding society back. Kirishima, unlike Bakugou, is easy to inspire and vulnerable to misdirection. It would be easy for villains to convince him he’s doing the right thing. 

It’s actually sad to think about. I can imagine a sweet and innocent middle school-aged Kirishima working for the villains because he thinks the villains are helping people and the heroes are the bad guys. Later, after being at U.A. for while, he discovers the heroes are actually the good guys and he wants to be a hero. He would have then realized, as the traitor, he put his classmates in danger multiple times and caused Bakugou to get captured. The guilt he would feel from that would be soul crushing.  Bakugou feels guilty about All Might losing his powers. Think about Kirishima would feel after all that.  

This is my best attempt at making a traitor theory. It’s definitely possible that Kirishima isn’t the traitor. I don’t want him to be the traitor, but I don’t think it’s impossible like some people are making it seem.

Cheer and Sorrow (Are One and the Same)

There is a young woman who is presumably in her final year (no one is quite sure—there are rumors that she might have made a bargain with the Leanansidhe and survived intact if not quite sane only to leave for a year and then return—and everyone is afraid to ask because the last person who did got nothing but a smile that didn’t quite reach her eyes and a shift in the shadows behind her).  She is a poet, openly, but the Gentry never seem to acknowledge her (at least that anyone has seen), and her words, no matter how soft-spoken she is, cause chaos wherever she goes because they evoke emotions strong enough to leave weeping crowds, riots, and ecstatic dancing in her wake.  She changes her use-name constantly between two emotions—Cheer and Sorrow—but they never seem to align with her demeanor that day.  Cheer goes about with leaden limbs and bowed shoulders; Sorrow laughs and sings and dances until everyone who sees her feels exhausted, and makes decisions that would cause anyone else to be stolen (not her, she’s already Theirs, by bargain and vow, having traded her sanity for her art, and the fruits of her art for some semblance of stability).  No one quite knows what to make of her.

But every night in her room, she looks at the prescription bottle of mood stabilizers (untouched since the day she returned to EU) and smiles, reaching instead to pet the not-cat draped across her lap.  Names, if you believe in them at the right place and time, and with the right sort of aid, are more potent a coping method than slowly poisoning yourself.  She would take the pills, if she were anywhere else, take them and do well enough but not thrive.  She never intends to graduate (the world does not accept those who are happy with being different, but Elsewhere? That’s another matter entirely).

1. A Stranger’s Groom by SophiaFrederica || Rated M, 18.7k (WIP)

Viktor has always felt a strange connection to Bridget Jones, something that Yuri will never understand. Sure, there are quite a few differences between them: first, Viktor doesn’t feel very insecure about his looks (apart from his thinning hairline) and second, he doesn’t embarrass himself regularly. He has also made an amazing career and with his status as a high-class celebrity, he probably won’t need to worry too much about money for the rest of his life. But there’s something in Bridget that Viktor understands better than anyone, the fear of never finding your true love and spending your whole life all alone.

Aka “Married at First Sight” AU where both Yuuri and Viktor apply for the said reality television show, become a match and spend 5 weeks together as a married couple.

  • Comment: Cute!!!! I really look forward to how it goes. The setting is quite nice, and the little things like Georgi having gotten a psych degree, plus Phichit’s perception and just… everything is really good and has me subscribed to this. I can’t wait for the next chapter tbh I’m predicting a riot.

2. To Be or Not to Be Petty by Lady_of_the_Lake97 || Unrated, 16.5k

“You’re leaving and I’ll be the oldest one out there. I already hold the records in seniors and I’m sure the Russian Bitch will be on my tail all next year if I try to train in Russia with him. You and I both know I would have only had another year, or two left… why not end it one year earlier and train the little Japanese boy?”

“Cause that’s not why you’re doing it.”

“And why am I doing this if you know me so well?”

“Because you think you can train him to steal Nikiforov’s new junior world’s record right out from under him.”

“That’s not it.” Yuri said, and he saw the shock that flickered over Otabek’s face. “It’s because I know he can steal Nikiforov’s new world title out from under him. Now where did the little shit go, I need to find him and his old coach to discuss me taking over.”

Or an Au in which Younger Skater Viktor Nikiforov steals all of Yuri’s old junior world records and Yuri is just Petty enough to train a younger skater to steal them all back.

  • Comment: A fic based off of this au, it’s immensely enjoyable. a really heartwarming read. a bit rough, I think, but I really enjoyed the heck out of it. Everyone’s characters are entertaining and I love the dynamics going on; the author did a nice job converting the artist’s comics to fic.

3. Choice by rougeandtonic || Rated E, 5.2k 

“Look, it’s a shitty world for Omegas, kid. I’m not going to pretend it’s not. You can either make the best of it or–” she waves her hand, beer sloshing in the bottle “–give up on it. That’s the one thing you have a choice in.”

  • Comment: Short and slightly bittersweet a/b/o oneshot, it’s another look into society, with stricter expectations for certain genders and unwanted attention. All’s well that ends well, though.

4. Sugar by Weberina || Unrated, 14.8k (WIP)

Tears pooled in Yuuri’s eyes as he rested his forehead on his tightly clasped hands. It was the dead of night, and he was bone tired from rehearsals and performances, but still he couldn’t sleep. His body began to shake and his fingers tightened their grip as he tried to control the sobs that came in quiet gasps. He bit his lower lip to stem the flow of tears, silently praying that no one else could hear him in that tiny apartment.

Yuuri is desperate to finish his final year in Juilliard, and is offered an unconventional solution to all his problems.

  • Comment: I was a little skeptical at first, but now I’m hecking invested. A sugar daddy au with all the fundamentals, I really look forward to how this goes on. The overarching plot has me ━Σ(゚Д゚|||)━ already. Definitely give this a try if you like the sugar daddy trope!
my concepts for my modern olympian sets explained (part 4)

[LINK TO ALL CONCEPTS]

This is just my explanations for all my Modern Olympian Greek God aesthetics series. The concepts I had in mind while making it, and the story behind each one. If you haven’t seen it, the link is HERE.

Hecate–

Hecate lives in Salem and owns a witch shop called ‘The Crossroads’, located on the corner of two intersecting streets. Hecate is a very mysterious woman, and seldom says much. She has three black Cretan Hounds that guard her home, and a black cat that stays in the shop, which is her familiar. Hecate is particularly close to Artemis and Selene, who visit her shop often enough when they are in the area. She also knows Demeter and Persephone personally; during the time Demeter was trying to stop Persephone’s relationship with Hades, Hecate was on Demeter’s side. Hecate is a neutral; she can be as kind as she is cruel, as beautiful as she is terrifying. What separates people from both is whether or not they show respect. Hecate offers other services at her shop; she is a medium, and can communicate with spirits on the other side. She is often the mouthpiece to spirits trying to relay a message onto family members, friends, coworkers, lovers, etc. She hosts a circle meetup once a month during the full month to perform rituals and spells, and being that she is wise beyond her years, Hecate gives spiritual advice. She also offers wards and protection to those who need it, but things like that are not free. However the price isn’t always what it seems to be, as Hecate always has a purpose for the things she requires those to pay with. Strands of hair. An old picture of a relative. Flowers from your garden. Graveyard soil. Dust from the top of a tombstone. Cicada shells. Ashes from your fireplace. As a witch herself, she values sentimentality and symbolism over material wealth. 

Thanatos–

The last person you want to see standing at your doorstep is Thanatos. There are no friendly visits for Hades’ top hitman. Thanatos has an apathetic lethal force, and nearly impossible to out run. Once your name is written in his black book, you are next, and there’s nothing you can do about it. Thanatos is non discriminatory, and doesn’t care what your status, race, religion, gender, or age is. The only way to avoid Thanatos is paying the debt owed to Hades, however that rarely ever happens fast enough. It also doesn’t matter how far you run away, because Thanatos will find you, and his methods of finishing job range a wide variety. He can be in your face with a gun, behind you with a knife to the throat, over your head with a blunt object. He can make it messy, he can make it clean. He can do it from far away, looking at you through the scope of his sniper. He can make it look like an accident, or a suicide, or frame the murder of someone you love. He can even make it look like a medical anomaly, slowly killing you without even realizing it. It doesn’t matter how, as long as your name is listed, your time is up, and anything within your range can be the cause of your death. Thanatos is resourceful, he will always find a way to cut your thread. Sometimes he goes by the name the Reaper or the Angel of Death. It doesn’t matter what you call him, though, because he’s not your friend, or your lover, or your enemy. He just is. 

Eris– 

Eris is a problematic youth that loves chaos. She’s an instigator of most fights, and she is often in the middle of a riot. Eris is an active Anarchist, and is always in the front of a situation of civil unrest. Actually, often times she is the cause of it. She’s a troll on the internet, she’s the first push in a mosh pit, she’s anonymous marching in a protest, she’s the first to light a cop car on fire during a riot. Eris doesn’t care about purpose, but she loves to feed hate and disagreement when she see’s it. Eris and her sister Enyo are considered twins to Zeus and Hera, being born so close together in years, and how similar they are, and where they ended up. Hera attempted to domesticate Eris, where Enyo followed her brother Ares to the Military (though failed, but that’s a story for another time), but Eris was having none of that. She wasn’t made for the domesticated, sophisticated life her mother desired for her. In fact, just to stir trouble in her own house, she often brought up topics or revealed secrets that she knew would piss off her parents and cause them to argue. As soon as she turned eighteen she left, with no intention of finishing school or finding a job. It isn’t that Eris found herself in trouble most of the time, it’s that she is the trouble, and often times leads groups of equally angry youths into riots that she herself organized. It doesn’t matter the cause, because frankly she just enjoys the ride more than the destination. She’s chaotic evil, if you had to define her personality. If you had to compare her to a villain, she would make the perfect Joker. Who, incidentally, is her favourite comic book character. 

Harmonia–

Harmonia is the cousin of Eris, and just by sight they are complete opposites. Harmonia is non confrontational; she doesn’t like arguing, and doesn’t like people who go out of their way to cause strife (coughEriscough). Her parents were corporate lawyers for two different companies, an environment she did not fit with at all; all she ever heard about was arguing. One bad lawsuit had resulted in her parents fighting a case against each other, which ultimately ended their marriage. Harmonia grew up never wanting to be like her parents. After high school she enrolled in the Peace Corps, and when she came back she went into politics and became a diplomat. She is still rather young, but she aspired to be an ambassador someday. Being that she is Anti-War, she advocates peace and likes to resolve issues in society as well as in friends and family. Harmonia lives a simple life away from the city in a wholesome small town with a very small population where very little crime occurs. She lives nearby Hestia, and the two are close friends. Her vacations are missionary retreats to different countries; from helping the poor, building homes, or volunteering at a reserve for animals for a few weeks at a time. Even back home, she volunteers three times a week when she isn’t working. Harmonia has also given a few speeches at the UN, and speaks 10 different languages in order to converse with other countries for her job. Her hobbies include yoga, meditating, taking long walks, and gardening. She also loves learning about different cultures, and often gets into long talks with new people to learn more about them and their backgrounds. 

Next three are: Hypnos, Morpheus, and Phobetor.

Hi, my beautiful followers

sorry about the inactivity, I’ve been extremely busy with school and relationships these days.

I can’t imagine that in the future I’ll be as nearly as active as I used to, but I’ll try to stick around at least a bit. 

so, last year, I complied a list of all the things I know about Axl Rose. I still have it right now, so I thought i would share it with you guys to see what you think. I couldn’t possibly state every single one of my sources, since I got these facts from so many videos, interiviews, magazines, webistes, etc., but the real reasons I want to post this is to a) teach some new GN’R fans about the amazing lead singer, b) hopefully give you all something interesting to post on your dash and c) maybe receive some constructive feedback in case I’ve mixed a few things up or had an innocent misunderstanding or two.

Anyways, here it is:

(There’s a very good chance I will update on this, too)

Listen to me. Listen. Listen. If you havent even played the game thats okay read this anyways, I have a point about straight culture
Okay here’s what i gotta tell you, straight people culture exists and here’s what it means.
Its straight people finding the one game where you’re borderline predetermined into a girl on girl relationship.
Seriously guys this is it. This is the ultimate example of straight people shit, straight people culture, lemme tell you.
There’s this game that is basically a linear story, minus a few smaller choices that you can switch up.
You can choose whether you want eggs or Belgian waffles but okay this is not the point.
Listen fellas. This entire game is pushing these two girls together, as i said its a linear story, it’s fated.
It’s fated. The chemistry is undeniable. Your character spends almost the entire game WITH this other character, this other girl. It’s very very very clear from the beginning that they are meant to be love interests.
Okay so here’s the thing guys.
There’s a random dude in the background you know? A dude. He’s not the worst dude ever considering. He’s pretty nice, and I kind of like him as a character. He has this crush on the main gal. And I mean a BIG OL crush. Guys I mean he’s texting her 20+ times a day whether she answers or not, he doesnt give a fuck he is texting and always going in for hugs and just being a loser who has this puppy crush.
The thing is, you know what. Random dude pops up on screen maybe once per chapter for a few minutes each. He is clingy and nerdy and he and this main girl have no chemistry together at all.
Let me tell you this girl doesn’t want that dickie unless you force her to interact with him via decisions.
Because this game is what i thought was revolutionary ive just been playing through totally business, looking for my lesbians. He does his weirdo puppy love thing and straight up stands up this other girl who likes him, who he had plans to go to the movies with, and asks the main girl to go with him instead. Are you hearing this? He had plans to go with a girl who really liked his ass and then he told her he was going with his puppy love instead. He ditched her.
She was stressed.
Let me specify again that Max shows no instinct reaction to his advances. She DOES NOT make any moves with Warren that the player doesn’t forcefully initiate. He shows up once per chapter at best. Look there is no TIME for them to show chemistry, she doesnt hang with him, she barely texts him back, this girl does not go outta her way to be around this dude. She aint trust him with her secrets until she has NO ONE else to tell, and she tells him outta desperation because she needs help. She told her girlfriend EVERYTHING immediately, she and her girlfriend are together almost 24/7 in this game im not even being dramatic.
You got straights in forums sayin that their first kiss was just gals being pals, I cant make this shit up. You got straights saying that its just friendly kissing and hand holding and flirting, theyre bffs theres no gay.
They have a passionte fucking kiss in the last chapter guys, she and her girlfriend, passionate, mouth on mouth, hands cupping face, love.
As I said, there are parts to this game that are linear story. THAT kiss is linear, you cant get away from that, nor the love confessions at the end. You dont have to force the main to kiss her, or profess love, you dont choose it, the characters do, that is linear. Their love is the endgame.
The dude? You gotta manually accept his date offers, the ones in which he stands up the other girl he had, if you do. If you accept all his offers and push your main girl into him in the few scenes they have together, okay lemme tell you, you do have an option to kiss him. You have the option. No i love yous or anything else, no main character feelings, just, you make her romance him.
Okay im not dragging him yet he’s okay as a person other than standing up that poor girl- but lets just say, this badass bitch main girl, little tiny pixie angel, she has this really brutal nightmare and in that nightmare she’s haunted by everyone that has caused her issues.
This shit is just a nightmare, this is going on in her head, so its not really anything you can hold against him personally.. But listen guys. Listen fellas, this part in the nightmare she’s running from people. Aka the school principal who was bullying her at the beginning, a janitor who you can have a minor conflict with, a security guard who harasses her, a fucked up guy who terrifies her, and a teacher who’s actually fucked up smh, you’ll know if you play. and this guy. This clingy-ass straight guy, who is inherently a good guy for the most part, but… Look he is super clingy and the game makers are SELF AWARE of him and his almost weird tendencies. Listen guys.
I mean to say. She has an actual nightmare about him where she’s hiding from him as he stalks her through rows of lockers sayin really self aware shit.
That says to me very clearly that on some level of consciousness, main girl is AWARE and fears his clinginess and his feelings for her.
She finds his locker in this fucked up locker okay? She finds his locker and opens it, and theres a fuckin doll of herself staring back, and a bunch of photos of her, including the words ‘MY MAX’ in red ink.
U know the shit he was sayin was like ‘You can run, but you can’t escape your white knight.’ and like making fun of her girlfriend like ‘who’s that blue haired freak? you need an alpha male to take care of you’.
Like shit man thats fucked up. They’re friends in her real life but yo when your subconscious is giving you nightmares about him tracking you down saying nasty shit you know he’s too clingy 4 you.
your brain doesnt give you that for no reason, and i mean this nightmare was lucid. This was very lucid. This nightmare was reflecting every single fear Max had back at her, this shit was very aware,
it wasnt some bizarre dream that had no relevance to her real problems. It WAS her problems.
oh also okay you know what?? literally another part of the nightmare was her seeing her girlfriend with multiple other people, kissing, posing, etc. Her nightmare was her losing her girl to some other girl or guy.
Bruh. Bruh. Come on, i mean the end of the nightmare was her reliving every good moment she’d ever had with her girlfriend 2, it was her on memory lane, unable to find Chloe while remembering every good moment they had.
Lemme tell you this game is so gay it doesnt know what to do with itself, look fellas.
What my point is here, this is straight culture. Straights play this game, the one game with canon girl action, and they direct the character to the lonely guy who texts Max 20 times a day. they take screenshots of those 20 texts and they post bout how cute it is some shit like
they go on forums and post that the ‘I love you’ was gal pals. They go on tumbls and highlight the few moments that the main even interacted with the desperate dude
They screencap that chemistry-less, dry shit and they go ‘awwwww’
like guys why do they gotta find the one game where the story is all about two girls falling in love and facing several issues together. why they gotta find that story, and go and ship the main with the ONE obligatory straight dude who spends the whole game crawlin up her ass
you know unless u shove main girl at him the few times you see him and accept all his advances it doesnt even give you the option to kiss him.
It only gives you that option defeatedly if you’ve spent the whole game tryna hide your lesbians because the makers are self aware that the straights are lurking in the fanbase
Okay this is a long ass story and rant fellas, let me summarize why I’m mad. I’m not mad because the writers caved and let these straights have their way with a ‘kiss him’ option in the last chapter. I could be pissed. Because of the hours of time spent developing this girl on girl relationship and showing them falling for each other. I could be mad because they just caved last minute. but im not. they gotta cater to the heteronormative side of the fanbase. If they didnt give that option we’d have a riot = to the riots caused by your fav sports team losing the superbowl where they flip cars and shit. you know the straights would be offended and say that straights are oppressed and all that weird, delusional whatsit. Boycott or demand their 15$ back. idc let them have their pity win
I’m not mad that the straights are going around saying that these two women making out are gal pals.
Im not even mad that the straights don’t acknowledge that this dudebro is bad for badass main bitch, to the point where her subconscious refers to him as a white knight who just wants her for her body to perverted, extreme lengths. I’m not mad about that. They put him on a pedestal and say he’s perfect for her while pointing out the girlfriend’s flaws (and yes she has some biggies). NBD. I’m not super mad they clearly have a straight bias, erasing all the negativity from the hetero-hell ship and boosting the negativity of the canon gay ship to make it look like hetero = healthier. (Im more bitterly disappointed about this onee)
I’m kinda mad because lemme tell you, friends, this is the one game i’ve played where the predetermined endgame love is between two girls automatically.
I’m kinda mad because of the fact that straights have found this one godsend, and then they all force the straight option.
I’m mad because i finished my game and the percentage of players who kissed the dudebro was 66% and rising. Over half of the fanbase ships her with this dude who appeared for less than 30-overall minutes in the game. This dude who just kind of.. has an awkward crush and gets touchy and clingy and irritating sometimes hot damn.
Half of my fandom ships this weird ass, fake, forced ship instead of the endgame.
Why? Lemme tell you. Because the canon is two girls.
The guy doesn’t need to have chemistry with the main girl, or on screen development, he doesn’t need to do anything special, he doesn’t need to fit any standards aside from being a cisdude who wants to dip dick with the main girl. Legit. That’s the only standard, he’s the obligatory male ‘option’.
And 66% of players, playing a game with canon girl on girl love, found the one straight dude and went out of their way to ship the main chick with him, ignoring her girl feels.
And that is straight culture. Taking over anything remotely lgbt in the most subtle way possible. Finding heteronormativity in the gayest of things and broadcasting it to drown out the gay.
Homophobia isnt just direct insults and physical abuse anymore. Its subtle efforts to draw attention away from lgbt media by making it straightwashed. It’s finding the straight option in anything without fail- and if there is no straight option, making a fuss about it. Homophobia has a lot of branches, this one just HIT MY FANDOM IN THE FACE. im ashamed of this fandom.

In 2008, San Quentin Prison was holding over twice the amount of inmates it was designed to hold, so the facility began stacking inmates in bunk beds in every available space in the prison, excluding the chapel. This image is of a former gymnasium, which held over 360 inmates. Most inmates spent 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in the gymnasium with no personal space or privacy. Open toilets were installed along one wall in plain view, and the inmates constantly battled with a rat infestation. Inmates self-segregated in the gym by race, and if a member of one race wandered into the territory of another race, it caused a serious issue that usually ended in violence. Fights between two inmates would commonly turn into riots due to the close quarters and frayed nerves at being packed like sardines into a hot room with no circulation. As of 2016, San Quentin has managed to whittle down their inmate population as a result of several major lawsuits to a more reasonable 137%.

Were we shown but did not observe?

I just had an idea while toying around with EMP theory in HLV (yes AGAIN, give me stick but you’ll have to pry this from my dead cold hands…):

If Sherlock doesn’t shoot Magnussen, if that’s EMP, is the following scene where Mycroft mentions the other one (TOO) EMP as well? 

Mmh, somehow I don’t think so… I think Sherlock features in all the scenes that are set in his MP (or we see a cut from him listening to people telling him what has happened, like when Lady Carmichael tells him about the bride in the maze or Lestrade tells him how the bride shot herself).

But Sherlock isn’t in TOO - nor are we shown someone telling him about it.

OK, so it’s not EMP, it’s real.

But as Sherlock did not kill Magnussen, why should Sherlock go to prison, and who’s murder is talked about in this scene?

If you can still bear to stay with me please continue below the cut.

Preference 172: Unexpected photo.

Harry: You loved concerts. Since one of your favorite things to do was to go to concerts, Harry got you the ultimate birthday present– a set of tickets to a huge festival you’d been wanting to go to for years. After talking about it a whole bunch, the two of you decided to invite Niall, Liam, Sophia, and one of your good friends from home. At one point in the show, Harry leaned onto you with one are rested on your shoulder and the other hand placed on your waist. The band began performing a slower song, and both you and Harry were standing quietly in the swarm of the crowd, Niall to your left. Secretly, the Irishman whipped out his phone and snapped a candid of the typical moment between the two of you, tweeting about how everyone was out for the night and he was getting a bit jealous of your cute coupley-ness. But, then again, wasn’t everyone?

Liam: It wasn’t unknown that Liam was excessively caring when it came to you. He would stop the world to help you with whatever you needed, even if you didn’t need it. His favorite thing was doing cliche, corny things that most boyfriends would only do in movies. A prime example of this was the time you fell asleep on him in the back of an airport while you waited to get picked up and dropped off at the hotel. As soon as he noticed that you’d fallen asleep, he knew he was going to have trouble getting you into the car. He could easily carry you, but he wasn’t sure how to pick you up without disturbing your slumber. Somehow he managed to get you in his arms, but the jostling of being lifted up caused you to wake up. Liam refused to put you down at that point, though, and you ended up being carried across a puddle, through a swarm of paps, and placed gently in the seat of the van. What a knight in shining armor.

Louis: You knew taking his phone would cause a riot, which was exactly what you wanted. In all honesty, you wouldn’t be too great of a match for Louis if you couldn’t get a little mischievous yourself. The boys adored the pranks the two of you played on each other, and you often divided into teams to try to make some fun on tour. That was the case when you took the boy’s phone. As soon as he realized you had it, he was after you. Everyone was in the empty lot behind that stop’s venue, under the close watch of security and fans, all of you doing your own thing. For the past few minutes you’d been making silly faces at the fans and creating inside jokes with them about how you had Lou’s phone. They warned you when he began running over to you, and you bolted behind Liam, the closest of the band members to you, laughing at the look on your boyfriend’s face. He made it to Liam and after your friend tried to protect you for a while, you escaped again. Louis caught up with you, though, wrapping his arms around you from behind and lifting you off the ground to stop you from running. His phone was in your hands, and the two of you began to battle for the device. In the end, he resorted to tickling you (your biggest weakness) to get you to let go. Later that night pictures of the ordeal were all over Twitter, soon enough becoming you new profile picture on the social media site.

Niall: Niall loved vacationing with your siblings. He’d grown up in a reasonably small family, his only company for a long time being Greg and his parents, so seeing the five of you interact so normally was interesting to him. Even though there were so many of you, you just seemed to work together perfectly– more like friends than siblings. Being the middle child was both the best and worst, as you were close to all of your siblings but you were also the first one who was asked to pick sides. When everyone decided to take a trip to the cabin your family owned for a weekend by the lake, you jumped at the opportunity for Niall to come along. The first thing you all did was head down to the lake. It was something you’d done with your parents since you were younger, so even when you went up without them, you’d still go straight for the water. When you got close enough that your bare feet were slightly touched by the incoming waves, Niall grabbed your hand and you gently plopped your head on his shoulder, which apparently called for a picture. Your older brother snuck up behind the two of you, capturing the moment immediately before pushing you both forward and into the water. It was gonna be a fun weekend.

Zayn: Surprising Zayn on tour was something you loved to do. You would rarely set up an official date for you to come see him, but you always just showed up to surprise him. One of the perks of this was that not only did you get to see your boyfriend but you also got to perform with him and the boys. That was the mean reason you guys always had to work so hard to see each other– you were both constantly touring and traveling for promotions and such. Whenever fans saw and hear the two of you performing together, they went crazy. Naturally, there were a few people who didn’t quite enjoy your relationship, but most of them adored you. That’s why when you made your way into Teenage Dirtbag at a WWA concert, what seemed like thousands of pictures were taken. In the end, though, a picture of the two of you hugging after singing, was the lucky winner and your new Instagram profile picture.

Like these two, I’m a pacifist, and have been my whole life. I’m a moral vegetarian and I catch bugs and put them outside rather than harm them. I only support violence in cases of literal self defense.

So I’m sharing this not to endorse violence, but to say to America, “If you want to stop what’s happening, YOU have to stop the bloodshed, THEREBY TAKING AWAY THE CAUSE OF THE RESPONSE.” 

NOBODY WOULD BE RIOTING IF THE DAILY MURDER OF INNOCENT BLACK PEOPLE BY LAW ENFORCEMENT STOPPED. IF YOU DON’T WANT PROTESTS AND RIOTS, TREAT THE BLACK COMMUNITY LIKE YOU TREAT THE WHITE COMMUNITY. 

WHO BY THE WAY ALSO RIOTS, BUT FOR SPORTS WINS, SO THAT’S CUTE I GUESS.

I might be the only one, BUT...

After watching closely all these years, I don’t believe Darren and Chris met when those two say they did. I think they met earlier, maybe during The making of the Pilot for Glee, when Darren first auditioned, but failed to make the cut. Maybe earlier, since both Chris and Darren were making the Hollywood scene in 2008. They would have met at parties, or promotional events, or even one of those bars where Chris says his brief appearance caused a riot. Darren did Eastwick before Glee, and Chris was making the rounds promoting the upcoming Glee pilot. Hell, they even lived in the same state, only two hours apart (like McKinley and Dalton), they could have met at a school competition. Darren was in every club, we know this much. Do we believe the “Chris Colfer home school” story for middle school? What if he was sent to Darren’s private school, as a boarding student, even though his family couldn’t afford it? Who is Darren’s Sophomore song about? They have slipped up a couple times, almost saying something more. But Glee is not a documentary, right? I love the story of the Sutton Foster concert, and then dinner, but when Darren says he knows he can never go out in public with Chris EVER AGAIN, after that “date”, that sure does sound like a person deeply invested in being with someone, one way or another, whatever it takes. Maybe that’s why Darren was so desperate, to the point of getting sick, and rumored to have compromised himself, to get this role. After all, why should Chord get this part, of Kurt’s boyfriend, and all that means, when Darren already was, or wanted to be, in real life? Plus, JEALOUS. Or maybe, just maybe, he needed to protect Chris, based on what he knew. By being on the inside, and taking the “hits” himself. Ryan has said he wrote this role for Darren. Yet we hear that Darren was exhausted and ill by the time auditions were over. Ryan knew who he was, and his background. In a lot of detail, if he wrote Blaine, at Dalton, just for him. Wonder who told him (or reminded him) all about Darren, that dreamy private school boy who played Freakin’ Harry Potter.

A Toast Is In Order...

grantaire-the-drunken-artist​, mon amour!

My dear friend from college posted this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_s5KkS8TbQ

and I conceived a modern AU head canon. Grantaire’s little sister is deaf, so he’s fluent in sign language. Then, an accident during a protest-turned-riot causes Enjolras to lose his hearing; Grantaire is the one to teach Enjolras to sign. The two men bond. One night Enj signs “I love you” to Aire. Fluffiness ensues. What do you think? My latest fic is nearly done, and I need some new writing material. Would this be a good place to start? (AND IF I AU THEM AS AMERICAN, THEY CAN LEGALLY GET MARRIED IN ALL 50 STATES! CONGRATULATIONS TO THEM, AND ALL SAME-SEX COUPLES!)

Much love,

thewriterinallofus

P.S. I have been meaning to send a Grantaire head canon your way for a while anyway, but yes, I did just highjack this entire post to be about marriage equality!

DR3 Zetsubou Hen Episode 9 ‘Chisa Yukizome Doesn’t Smile’ Impressions

This episode fell completely flat for me, to be honest. Apart from a few little moments and the ending implications, I did not really enjoy what I watched this time. All the issues I had with Episode 8 of Despair have just continued to be confirmed and increasing here, and it’s still a direction I absolutely hate that they’re taking this show in, not only nullifying the point of DR2 and its cast in general, but also kind of ruining DR1 and Junko for me as well. Junko actually really irritated me this episode, for the first time ever. Always been the biggest Junko defender here but YIKES this episode… spoilers under the cut as usual.
