It’s a rare opportunity when a short man such as myself is able to act out the genius of two tall and handsome and large boned men such as Tyler and Ethan…
Welcome to The Life of Me: A Markiplier Story. A One Man Show of epic proportions brought to you from the deepest and moistest regions of the minds of two intelligent and broad shouldered individuals. They are unmatched in their ability to stitch together such a compelling narrative and I am humbled to bring their vision to life. Please enjoy the show…
“you’re a genius. you’re stone cold brilliant, you are, i swear, you really are. but you could be so much more. you could be beautiful. with a mind like that, we could travel the stars. it would be my honor. because you don’t need to own the universe, just see it”
Extra Headcanon/AU notes (for the curious): Inko isn’t aggressive nor is she all that intimidating, she just moms everyone. And that within itself has the makings of a terrifying individual.
She is also extremely determined when she wants to be? Bakugou thought she was just a typical, weak schoolgirl when they met as kids, but Inko was determined to make her stop smoking/getting into so many fights. It was downright terrifying what she could do when she had set her mind on something.
They didn’t really become friends until a couple years after they met, though. Bakugou doesn’t really have a good relationship with her parents, and after one particularly hostile spat, Inko just kinda… showed up at her door. She didn’t ask any questions, just knew, and they ditched school for four days to go up to Hokkaido and be happy.
Bakugou’s fearful respect of her is based on years of Inko somehow knowing everything and multiple cases of her calling/texting/msg-ing Bakugou just as she lights a cigarette or glares at some thugs, despite being nowhere in the vicinity. She is 99% certain that Inko has some sort of secondary psychic sense quirk that keeps her attuned to the people she cares about.
(Also, Bakugou really loves her son, but? She also REALLY wants to kick his ass, because Inko took such good care of her when they were younger and she feels entirely responsible for how her son acts towards Izuku. She probably sees Katsuki’s behavior as a reflection of her own and regrets/wishes she was a parent more like Inko, or something.)
Do you ever forget how crazy intelligent Lydia Martin is, but then you remind yourself that she literally moved on to archaic Latin because she was bored with classical Latin. Then you’re all like “Lydia Martin is my queen.” Then you also remember that she was capable of hiding all of her unbelievable intelligence from everyone (best friend, boyfriend) EXCEPT for Stiles, and suddenly you’re an emotional wreck who cries over the perfection that is not just Lydia Martin, but also Lydia Martin AND Stiles Stilinski.
