one of my favorite things about DBZ is how Bulma is basically bffs with with every goddamn super powerful fucker in the series
Goku? grew up with him. Vegeta? she’s fucking married to him, and he’s willing to fucking punch a god in the face for hurting her. Trunks? he’s her SON. Gohan and Goten? she’s basically their aunt. Buu? she’ll give him food sometimes. Beerus and Whis? fuck, most of the reason the earth is still around is because she’s givin’ them good food, and they’re willing to bend fucking cosmic rules to keep her safe so they can get more
To read is to find meanings, and to find meanings is to name them; but these named meanings are swept toward other names, names call to each other, reassemble, and their grouping calls for further naming: I name, I unname, I rename, so the text passes.

The reader is light, divided, dispersed, never still, and so is her reading.
Vegeta going from horrible villain to that kind-of friend that nobody likes to literally humiliating himself in order to protect his friends and family and his friends and family honestly being worried for his well-being is one of my favorite character and relationship developments in any series ever
