Since we’re looking at chronology in the fam recently, I reserve the right to believe that Selina can do the Shakira Shake, owned a studded belt, and knew all the moves to Ciara 1, 2 Step ft Missy Elliott.
ii. He learns to take a hit, He learns to take a hit, He learns to take a hit. It’s easier on the ice than off it. He learns to live in the moments before a collision.
vii. There is always (always, always) the part of him that says: you could have done better. He thinks he’s pushing himself as hard as he can go, but he can’t be sure, he’s never sure. When he stops, when he loses his grip on his breath, when he feels something solid and hot and sharp blocking his throat, when his hands shake and his mind buzzes and he is restless, when he can’t focus at all and he is entirely unsettled and he feels like he is falling and drifting and overwhelmed, when he stops because he can’t do this anymore, it always feels like giving up. He thinks, maybe I could have gone a bit farther. Maybe I am doing this to myself, and I could be doing better, and I don’t have to be this way. He feels lazy and heavy and stupid because he should be able to do this everyone else can do this so why is it just. Him. Be better, try harder, you can do better than this. Everyone else is doing better than this.

Makoto Naegi, the luckiest (unluckiest?) one in the army.
A normal boy born in the capital. Standing at five foot three (five foot seven, in the case of an aged up version, such as the summonable Hero), he has the appearance of a typical herbivore man and carries himself like one as well. Having a totally average spread of abilities, he’s unable to proficiently perform any magic or swordsmanship beyond what one would consider a beginner’s ability. This is remedied by his very notable willpower, and core belief that ‘everything will turn out alright in the end’. Because of this incredibly optimistic mindset, his true worth lies in bringing together the army and helping them to believe in each other during times of disarray and chaos through spreading his insurmountable hope.
The ‘capital’ in question is a variable. It can be either Hoshido’s capital or Ylisstol.
