HMMM it might take years for me to finish talking so let me put the summarized ones in bullet form
- I want Rakuzan to win.
- Losing in this match means Akashi loses, nothing more. The winner takes everything, the losers are denied. Therefore, Akashi is denied. Seirin winning won’t prove anything to Akashi. Them wanting to win for the sake of winning will just prove Akashi right. Winning is everything. Changing Akashi won’t just take Seirin winning over Rakuzan because it isn’t that Akashi believes he’s unbeatable, it’s that he believes it’s unacceptable to lose. If he loses, it’s like losing his right to live, because he believes that’s the ticket to continue living in this world - therefore he has to win no matter what, no matter who the opponent-. If he loses, he’s selected out.
- I think Oreshi is bound to make an appearance because the flag has already been raised by Midorima. Akashi has done nothing remarkable in this match yet, he’s not the star. Kagami’s talking about some deeper Zone or something and Hyuuga is bound to return to the court and Kiyoshi at least has to go out of the basketball scene with dignity and without any regrets. Akashi’s going to get the last turn, I think.
- However, I’m really wondering how Oreshi will appear. I mean, I doubt he’ll appear if Bokushi is defeated since Bokushi is the defense mechanism that was born because Oreshi was about to lose. Oreshi is the vulnerable one and Bokushi is the soldier. Will the vulnerable come to center stage if the soldier is defeated? I mean, if he really does have DID I think it’s more logical to think a different personality emerges if he’s become bombarded with more and more stress and pressure.
- I at least, want Oreshi to appear once Kuroko somehow reaches him. Or at least when he’s having fun playing. Akashi won’t change overnight though and I want him to take baby steps. Not have some people break the boy in the match and make him do rash things to himself instead.
- Kuroko is already showing concerns for the stoic Akashi, and Kuroko already said he won’t run away anymore with that Teikou graduation flashback. Let’s see what Kuroko will do.
- I think the manga will continue afterwards (just my personal opinion and my wish lol). It doesn’t feel like it’s ending at all? D: Isn’t Fujimaki’s goal to have them play together again? I mean, Hyuuga and the rest are only 2nd years. There has to be reasons why Fujimaki made Seirin High School a newly formed school? Other than to say “Wow, Seirin is great”.
- Midorimacchi tried to reach Akashi but he wasn’t able to, it’s now up to Kuroko to be able to reach inside Akashi’s heart.
MY SCATTERED THOUGHTS. I hope you don’t mind!!
Dear Future Daughter:
1) When you’re at some party, chain smoking on the roof with some strange girl with blue hair and exorbitant large dark eyes, ask her about her day. I promise you, you won’t regret it. Often times you’ll find the strangest of people have the most captivating of stories to tell.
2) Please, never mistake desire for love. Love will engulf your soul, whilst desire will emerge as acid, slowly making it’s way through your veins, gradually burning you from the inside out.
3) No one is going to fucking save you, anything you’ve read or heard otherwise is bullshit.
4) One day a boy is going to come along who’s touch feels like fire and who’s words taste like vanilla, when he leaves you, you will want to die. If you know anything at all, know that it is only temporary.
5) Your mental health comes before school baby, always. If its midnight, and you have an exam the next day but your hands have been shaking for the past hour and a half and you’re not so sure you want to be alive anymore, pull out that carton of Ben and Jerry’s and afterwards, go the fuck to bed. So what if you get a 68% on the exam the next day? You took care of yourself and at the end of the day that will always come before a high test score. To hell with anyone who tells you differently.

How to remove a ring from a swollen finger without cutting it off.
This is amazingly clever, and absolutely needs to be propagated among healthcare professionals; it won’t be useful often, but when it is, it could seriously save lives, because people hold up their own emergency treatment for sentimental and emotional reasons every day in every ER in the world.
My wedding ring was my father’s ring for 32 years of loving marriage before my mother died, and I would not hesitate to tell an EMT to take the finger off and reattach it later if they could before I would let them cut this ring.
Erase her name from memory. Remove yourself from her life, more completely than you would like but as completely as she deserves. Move on, so that you can allow her to also move on. When you close your eyes, you don’t get to see her face. Not anymore. You don’t get to think about her lips, the warm glow of her skin when she rests next to you, or how she squeezes your hand in her sleep. You are not allowed to remember the smell of her perfume, that she only drinks mint tea (with two dollops of honey), or that she loves you.
She loves you.
She has been in love with you for too long.
So, forget how she says your name. Forget how she calls your name. Forget how she screams your name. Forget that time you got sick and she stayed up with you all night, letting you lay your head in her lap and holding a cold compress to your forehead. Forget how her hair feels in your fingers. Forget how she looks in your sweatshirts.
Know only that she existed at one point in your life, but relinquish all hope that she could exist at another point — sometime in the future that you are unwilling to specify because you don’t know what you want. Yet. It is not fair for you to swoop in and out of her life as you choose. It is not fair for you to say that you are satisfied with “things as they are” and you will have time to “figure it out” later. Let her stop investing emotionally in you. Let her pour that love and care into the people who deserve her.
Don’t tell her that you think about her all the time. Don’t tell her that it bothers you to hear about her with other people, but that you’re willing to understand as long as she likes you more than them. Don’t tell her that this isn’t the right moment but that there will be a right moment. There is not going to be a right moment. She shouldn’t have to wait for the right moment.
Don’t tell her that you can’t handle ultimatums, that you don’t like the idea of finally adding finality to your relationship — whatever still remains of it.
What you are telling her is that you want to keep her on as an option, that you are taking her for granted, that you want to know she will be there, that you can depend on her at the end of the day. When you find that no one else has stuck around or that those who have are less interesting, less thoughtful, or less doggedly loyal to you.
Doggedly loyal to you.
That is what she has been to you, for you almost as long as you have known her: a constant emotional crutch, the guarantee of stability, a safety net while you reach out to grasp objects that sparkle and shine far greater than she does. All that glitters is not gold, haven’t you heard?
She is fire. You are ice, and you are afraid that her slow burn will smolder your cool, hard demeanor. That’s what has driven your decisions, your actions all along: fear. You are a coward. You are a hypocrite. You are terrified to let her go, but you are afraid she is too good for you, that she could drive you wild, that you would choke on her flames. That she is too much for you to handle right now.
Right now.But if you choose not to love her now, you can’t choose to love her later.
I’m Italian but I wouldn’t mind in the slightest if some hot guys like these ones wanted to teach me more. In fact, please do.
