the infuriating thing about ank is that if riki wasnt so hung up on his pride in the first place then nothing would have happened and he could have kept what pride he had, fuck my life. fuck his life.fuck me for knowing about his life
but really. literally the plot would just stop dead in its tracks. if riki hadnt insisted on “”“paying”“” iason back for uhhh being merciful, really, then he could have shrugged it off and walked away and iason could too and they would never see each other again, great, fantastic, this is the ideal world
it should also be noted however that had iason listened to raoul (something he could and should have done VARIOUS TIMES THROUGH OUT THE ENTIRE FUCKING PLOT, RAOUL IS BASICALLY ME) for once in his godforsaken life everything also would have stopped - raoul warns iason against “”“picking up weirdos”“” the moment the two meet and if he listened to raoul and denied riki then that also would have stopped everything but nooo everyone has to fuck it up
because like??? if they didnt have that first random fling which never should have happened in the first place in any context, then riki wouldnt have gotten the idea in his head that leaving the slums is actually like, a tangible possible thing and not just some abstract idea that kept him going like HOLY SHIT he could ACTUALLY LITERALLY LEAVE damn. of course he’d cling to that, i dont blame him. of course he’d agree to sacrifice what he probably thought was just a lil bit of pride to get out of the slums and into a life of luxury.
and like……….. not to say his desire to leave is unreasonable regardless of the circumstances, of course it isnt ffs, but, its impossible to actually do and even when he was a pet, and afterwards, and then again, he slowly realizes this - that even though he was technically a pet, he was still a scumbag from the slums, and thats where he would inevitably return to no matter what.
first he wants to go back, which makes sense, but he’s still back there at square one again and the slums have actually gotten worse and so has he. and then when he returns to being a pet, he fully realizes - he’s still not out of the slums. he’s going back to the slums eventually because that’s just how it is for anyone who isnt an elite. thats just reality. he literally cant do anything to change that,
except for what he did at the end, of course…
and that reality also kind of renders everything he did to get out of the slums: completely and utterly pointless
which sucks, big time.
so really there’s no way he could have “won”, whether he ever met iason or not.
but, if he hadnt met iason, then at least the slums would be all he’d ever known. and at least he wouldnt have had to suffer those years as a pet only to realize he’d never actually make it. at least he’d never know that grim reality and he could keep clinging to that abstract brand of hope that maybe he’d crawl out eventually, even if he just ended up rotting away like everyone else in the slums
and the infuriating thing i was talking about is how easy it would have been to avoid it all. he could have just literally walked away and that would be that
straight people are so weird wtf like heres a drawing of two animals in love but one has eyelashes so you know these are Straight Animals
I always forget that sports anime antagonists aren’t actually evil villains…because it’s just a sport.
[protagonist voice] it’s not just a sport *clenches fists* it’s my life
sometimes I like to laugh at the Generation of Miracles’ super special abilities because
- kise: jacking your style
- midorima: he throws the basketball
- aomine: pretty much 100% swagger I think
- murasakibara: tall
- akashi: fucking mind control idk

*colour means nothing* (except the fact that PoC are socially, economically and politically marginalised from the moment they enter society because of their race, colour or ethnicity)
*we’re all human* (although PoC are constantly dehumanised, under-represented and their humanity constantly challenged by systematic racism thoroughly ingrained into our social consciousness) Iggy is disgusting.
AKA, I’m not racist, because I’m fucking a black dude and he lets me call him “my nigga”.
When will people realize that ‘colorblindness’ isn’t a solution for racism, it’s just another way to erase the experiences of POC?
And when you erase our experiences, you’re practicing white supremacy.

Sasuke scoffed and glared at the girl standing before him. “Sharpay Evans. I know you were the one who ordered my older brother to destroy my clan. For that, you shall die!” He roared, closing his eyes and activating his Sharingan. ” I WILL AVENGE MY FAMILY!”
