I’ve fallen deep into bnha and wow… the I Am… series by @aoimikans and @swiftwidget is one of my favourite AUs of all time. If you haven’t read it you really should because the entire thing is absolutely amazing!! I just had to try drawing their AU’s version of Toshinori (who is an absolute sweetheart and deserves a nap. let this poor man rest)
You must stay focused. Remember who you are Tenzin. You are the son of Avatar Aang. You are the hope for future generations of airbenders. The fate of the world rests on your shoulders. But what if I fail? [Looks around.] Then your father’s hopes of the future dies with you. I can’t fail. You will. [Covering his ears, while sagging to the ground, arguing with himself.] Ah, stop it! I am the son of Avatar Aang. I am the hope for future generations of airbenders. I am the son of Avatar Aang!
What if Gladio’s harsh ass anger and attitude was all due to guilt for what happened to Ignis?
It’s slowly occurring to me that when Prompto left the group in Altissia to help Noct get closer to Leviathan, Gladio and Ignis were the two left…
And after the implication of what we see in the teaser for Episode Ignis… Where was Gladio? WHY WASN’T HE THERE TO BE BY IGNIS’S SIDE?
I feel like… Prompto and Gladio’s being overly concerned for Ignis and trying to help him by being up his ass all the time, and snapping at Noct for walking too fast and shit is because they were guilty because they weren’t there.
They were not there to protect Ignis, and because of that Ignis was overwhelmed and taken down by MTs and Ardyn fucking hurt him. Of course blinding him was a brilliant stroke, took away one of the most important things to Ignis, his sight. He can’t observe and protect Noct if he can’t fucking see.
WHERE WERE YOU GLADIO. We know mostly what Prompto was up to be WHAT HELL. Where you were you, Gladio, when Ignis needed you?!
