While Reigen isn’t an esper, and has no powers of his own that we’ve yet to see in canon, there is one strength he has that many other espers don’t.
He’s good at people.
He knows people and he knows what they’re about. He’s good at seeing past bullshit and into what people have hiding. It’s why he’s managed to do this for so long.
And beyond even that, he’s good at understanding people.
Maybe that’s why I’m drawn so much to him.
I’m not surprised that out of all the other people there who haven’t seen visible proof of Minori’s possession - and all of them espers of high standing to boot! - that he’s the one who sees it. He’s good at seeing past bullshit, and he doesn’t have powers - so he focuses on that which he can see, and isn’t distracted by what espers think isn’t there.
His own eyes, the words, the nuance.
It’s always been like this, even since the beginning. Reigen deals in the most bullshit of anyone in this entire series - he’s a tried and true conman.
And yet he’s the best at cutting through it. With various clients, with the Scar people, with Mob….
Even if he messes up time to time, he sees a lot better than most do.
um hi so i’m (just under) 50 away from 2k and it’d be ya know kinda cool if i could get there sometime (soon)… and yeap that’s my story (thanks for listening reading) (*awkwardly shuffles off stage ur screen*)
“So, Ruth, before she does a take, has to punch someone as hard as she can in the face; It has to be a different person each time. So, by the last day of the shoot the crew just looked
really fucked up. She’ll punch you in the stomach, that’s fine but she loves the head or the neck” [x]
Modern Au Headcanons: Pevensies + their significant other
🔸Edmund and his s/o having a very dark sense of humor between them, like: Him sending a palace staff member to run into his s/o room shouting “The Just King is dead!” Or something super messed up from time to time just because he can. And his partner’s reaction being genuinely terrified the first couple times, but it eventually turning into an indifferent “oh, just throw his corpse down the balcony”, “make it look like an accident” or something like that
🔸Susan and her s/o reading the most ridiculous gossips about them on tabloids and laughing at them together
🔸 Peter always using as an excuse for his lateness at public events that his s/o took quite a while to look so amazing, and brag about it with things like “but I mean can we just apreciate ____ for a moment? I mean, that much beauty is not possible” “sorry I can’t stop looking at you” interruptions in the middle of his speech.
🔸Lucy passing her s/o sweet notes during long parliamentary sessions
🔸Also whenever she’s out for commitments they keep sending funny snaps to each other making ugly faces.
🔸Peter and his s/o becoming kind of a joke whenever they go together to support Narnia team at any game, because Kiss Cam always focuses on them. And yeah, if they kissed, it would be a good game for team NA.
🔸Susan giving or receiving piggyback rides through Cair Paravel and whenever a member of the parliament came across this scene they put on their best serious face, wait till passing by them and then crack out laughing.
🔸Cair Paravel releasing a set of pictures taken without Edmund and his s/o noticing showing their cutest moments
