/a/. In youth you must have wanted to become a hero. You desired it more than anything else.
Am I wrong?
>Am I wrong?
Yes actually I wanted to be an astrophysicist.
No, but I realized I had to save myself before anyone else first.
When did you realize it?
It took me 3 years and about 80,000 shekels of flight training/university to realize I neither fit in and wasn't fit for this industry. I just gave up this month in fact, and I feel like shit.
Going to use what I learned to be an avionics tech in the air force at least so it wasn't a total waste. And at least I got this picture.
I wanted to be a footballer.
Quite when i turned 17 though.
That's what happens after you watch Non Non Biyori. You realize how much better life as a Japanese girl in the countryside is.
Nah, I wanted superhero powers but only because they'd be cool and handy. It would be impossible to try to help even just a small portion of people in the world, even if your powers were totally insane in scope, or if you could, it'd still be an enormous responsibility. You'd likely just end up aiding people close to you and then die of shame when you realized you're still using your fantastical powers in a selfish way despite everything.
I still want that. Really, who doesn't occasionally fantasize about flying, teleportation or something similarly useful?
I still do sometimes.
Really, the three powers I desire most are either:
1. Time Control, either Ultimecia or Dio Style (which comes with a stand, so that's a bonus)
2. Heaven's Door (See Dio's brackets above)
3. Teleportation, Kuroko Shirai style (burns calories when teleporting)
What are yours?
The usual, stopping time, flight/super speed, passing through objects, invulnerability, invisibility...
Immortality can go fuck itself though, unless you can choose to die when you feel like it
Is not really edgy. Think about it, they spent most of the time either winning or living in luxury and the hero defeats them barely at last minute. What are 5, 10 minutes top of suck compared to living the dream for years?
I wanted the power to go back in time.
That way I could correct all of my mistakes, avoid embarrassing things. The most cool aspect is being able to get shit tons of different kinds of experiences. Like now I'm watching the world burn and watching my anime, the next life I'm a successful rich guy who has it all, the next one I'm a delinquent social outcast on drugs and then I'm lives savior and cancer healer.
I'm good at flying itself. It's everything else that sucks. Mainly being stuck with Chad (it's Chad 95% of the time) inside a cockpit for hours on end and having to make conversation with someone you don't relate with.
>Am I wrong?
Yes. I'm not a hero of justice, I'm an enemy of evil.
>wants to become a villain
>realizes what that entails
>become an unsociable NEET that hates the world
I regret nothing.
I used to want immortality. Now i want to be a hivemind. The idea came to me when I realized that the reason behind eanting immortality was rooted in the desire to be able to do all the things i might not get the chance to. But the thing is, instead of spending 60 years saying 'no' to 90% of potential experiences, I'd be saying 'no' for eternity. I like the idea of being able to live and experience multiple lives at once. That way I get to say 'yes' to everything at once.
That might have been true in the past, but we've got a lot of new roads now.
Sure, we're all travelling them at the same time, but maybe one of them will lead to the extinction of humanity.
Dude. They share memories. They can do everything you can. Are you telling me you can't see any of the possibilities
yours is pretty nice too? Also, every ninja bar Rock Lee types can use illusions to look like someone else. Combine those two and you could do all kinds of shit.
>Shit, I'm not making enough money. Better make a Shadow Clone so I can take another job. Or twenty.
>Shit, I really want that [insert stuff here], but it's not for sale. WAIT, why don't I just use a Shadow Clone to steal it? It's the perfect crime!
>Hey, I forgot to study for my exams, better leave ten clones to study for the night. That's an average of 70 hours of studying right there.
There are so many possibilities. And that's just TWO techniques. And since you wanted to be like Naruto, you can do all kinds of other shit, and you always have the reserves for it.
I fully expected this and was not disappointed.
You're wrong but you're not incorrect.
The desire to become a hero emerges from the need of the world, and not my own wishes. My own selfishness in wanting to be a hero, for imagining others in jeopardy so I could be the hero, is why I could never truly become one.
>And since you wanted to be like Naruto, you can do all kinds of other shit
Be retarded for the first half of my life?
Become bald for the second half?
Be Japanese batman?
I wanted to be Jimmy Page.
I dressed up as a paleontologist for career day in kinder garden and an
arachnologist for first grade.
Allot later in life wanted to devote my life to medical research but that dream is long dead and buried along with all my others.
>/a/. In youth you must have wanted to become an hero. You desired it more than anything else.
>Am I wrong?
I wanted to follow in the footsteps of my hero and spook people.
>wanted to become a giant dragon capable of lay devastation
>made a pact with morgoth to became his ally and turn into the first winged dragon
>must wait 100years of sleep to became one
>just finished the bottle... time to go to sleep
I've just always wanted to have the power
to be good at something ;_;
Sometimes, I want to be hero or a villain.
Sometimes, I want to have great powers.
Sometimes, I want to be mad scientist, that makes himself a cyborg and start a robo colony on Mars
Sometimes, I want to be great leader of country.
In the end, it boils down to me wanting to not be a failure.
No way. Far too much work, easier to just sit around and let others do that.
I didn't even want to be the innocent bystander. They always have to deal with the side-effects of heroes and their struggles.
Not a hero per se, but definitely someone who was powerful and influential.
Of course I did
But finally I realized it's totally impossible to be a hero of justice because I have to sacrifice many people for the dream itself
It's only done by doing malicious things
Thirding this sentiment.
Nope. Wanted to be a ball player.
Was pretty bummed in summer '03 when coach told me that I'd probably never play higher than Select.
>look up Select
>it's middle schoolers
>tfw you saved someone's life when you were 18 years old
>The thrill of saving them was the greatest pleasure you've ever felt
>Ever since you've felt empty inside because you know you'll never feel that same rush again
Only if you're not flying for a big commercial airline on a big plane
crazy perks and money but you'll probably have a secret family or three
Kinda like being a pro basketball player
You are wrong.
You used the past tense.
>"Champions, we live as though the world should be, to show it what it can become"
I still want to be a hero, and still daily stride to better myself, and create a better, more positive outlook for those around me.
This is my determination!
Positivity and confidence!
Remind the world that everyone is loved and necessary in some way!
Nah, I wanted to be a mage and use my powers for my own selfish and sadistic demands.
Everything else is just wishful thinking.
Chaika is pure.
