The virgin c!Techno vs the chad c!Tommy.....
Psa: THIS IS A JOKE, THIS IS A JOKE, I DON'T HATE C!TECHNO, i think he's an interesting character, and obviously c!Tommy's not perfect either, i just wanted to make some comparisons, ok, please don't maul me-
ID under cut since it's kinda long:
[ID: the "virgin vs chad" meme, only it's redrawn with character Technoblade and character Tommyinnit.
On Techno's side, the points are as followed:
Disagreement/miscommunication = immideate betrayal and that person is now dead to me;
Deals with complicated emotions with revenge and destruction;
"Violence is the only universal language";
Claims to be all for anarchy but doesn't even think about mutual aid, only about destroying anything that he personally percieves as threats;
Wears op armor weapons 24/7 out of paranoia and seems to respect others more when they're physically strong as well;
Is one of the richest people on the server;
Teamed up with Dream even after the man admitted to being a tyrant just because he had a personal grudge;
Is really antisocial and doesn't interact with people outside of his circle unless forced to despite his goal of seeking out oppressive power and removing it, leading him to be heavily misinformed and unknowing of the population he claims to know what's best for;
Claims others dehumanise him and "only see him as a weapon" despite he himself dehumanizing others, like calling the teens he used to be friends with just "government" or "traitor" and sees the general population around him as just enemies;
In general doesn't deal well with his emotions and paranoia and has really bad coping mechanisms that he largely doesn't reconsider.
On Tommy's side, the points are as followed:
Sticks with people and remains loyal even when he heavily disagrees with them and tries to compromise/help them get better;
Deals with complicated emotions by going through therapy and introspection;
"Some people aren't strong enough... some people stop talking.";
Tries to tend to the local environment and fights for people to live freely and has attempted to make safe spaces for people to go to away from fighting;
"You can't just make up the rules, you just have the strongest armor, that's not how it should work dude.";
Only wears iron armor and uses basic tools because op ones remind him of war and he's trying to move past that paranoia;
Is one of the poorest people on the server and unbothered by it because he sees strength in community and perseverance, not anything physical;
Has been pissing off the people in charge and fought against corrupt power from day one;
Interacts with people as much as he can, leading him to know and actually care more about the people he protects;
Has been dehumanized in many ways (called "liability", "hero", "security risk", "toy", etc.), but doesn't take it out on others because "I shouldn't take out any of the fucked up shit that's happened to me on other people". /End ID.]

The Akatsuki actively work for a better world where kids don't have to die for the mistakes grown ups make. Lots of headcanons about characters ahead too. Hope you enjoy :3
(Brief mention of abuse in Hidans bc abusers land on Hidans chopping block)
Nagato, Yahiko (fuck it he lives idc) and Konan experienced first hand what war can do to a country and its inhabitants. They don't want anymore of that to happen. They don't want other kids having to live their lives like they had to. Actively build orphanages where war orphans are protected first and foremost. They are the most innocent participants in a war after all.
Kakuzu is old. He knows how people work, he knows how certain scenarios work out. He wants economic stability. A system in which no one has to fight for leftover scraps like he had to as a kid while some rich people chill somewhere stuffing themselves. Kakuzu says fuck capitalism and overthrow the system if its not benefitting the masses.
The path of Jashin is a violent one, no doubt but the people that meet their fate on Hidan's blade deserve it. No one deserves abuse, the power imbalance that the system brings forth installs a sense of false superiority where the only thing they can do is take. Hidan is bad with words but he makes sure that every asshole is sacrificed to his lord that grants him immortality so he can continue doing so until the end of time. The vigilant makes sure that the people end up in a support system and don't have to wait until one comes around like he had to. Hidan says end abuse.
Sasori hates being alone. He may be a man that can kill his enemies in mere seconds, but loneliness is something he fears. He would never admit it to anyone and no one asks. But the small puppets many orphans carry around and hold dearly certainly didn't make themselves. They bring them comfort and joy and sometimes the nice scary red headed man comes around and makes them dance for them. They are something to hold onto. Their parents may be gone but they still have each other. And that's a whole other family entirely. One that Sasori would never admit to having found in the Akatsuki.
Deidara always stuck out. Too loud, to bothersome for anyone to care or handle properly, merely dubbed a misfit with no interest in supporting him. He knows what its like for no one to care about one as an individual, only about their use to society. Art is his passion, its important to him and he encourages others to do the same. No matter what kind of weird or niche interest a kid may have, Deidara supports it 100%. He wants them to feel loved, valued and appreciated for their efforts, he wants them to continue being their most authentic selves, he wants them to know that they more than what they can give.
The Monster of the Hidden Mist. The Tailless Bijuu. Kisame knows what its like to be feared. Hated for your mere existence, hated for the circumstances of your birth you were unable to do anything about. Kisame realizes late in his life that hate leads nowhere. The Akatsuki make him realize that people can only grow with love. When people are believed to be good they can become good. No one should be hated for reasons they can't do anything against, Kisame thinks as he kidnaps the Gaara and Naruto away from their abusive villages to give them a better home.
Itachi was a child. He was a child when he first killed someone. Itachi is a machine meant for destruction. The Akatsuki make him realize that that simply just isn't the case. He is still a child. A terrified hurt little child caught in the game of adults who don't have anything better to do than destroy. A scared little child with blood on his hands and a terrifying legacy left behind. And he is allowed to be a child. He may be 14 but he is still allowed to sink into Konan and Yahikos arms and cry as he realizes what he has done. He may have the weight of the world on his shoulders but its a weight he doesn't have to lift alone anymore. And Itachi is determined to end this sick game of power once and for all.
Love is without a doubt the greatest power. Obito is a man made of love. Lost love, gained love, its a philosophy he breathes and embodies. Obito is idealistic. He believes in hope. A hope Rin had died to protect. Protect her loved ones. Him. Kakashi. The world. And Obito continues that. Its why he founded the Akastuki. A world created from despair can only yield hope as hope is born from despair. And Obito vows to nurture that crop so it may blossom into a tree, their efforts carrying fruit. Obito wanted to become the Hokage as a kid. But what is a king to a fallen kingdom sitting on a throne of deceit in lies?
The world needs to change. The Akatsuki are the change. No more useless death, no more despair, no more hate. Akatsuki. The new dawn. The daybreak for the dark Shinobi world.
I was already crying on sasori, you didn't have to go that hard with itachi and everyone else too on god 😭😭😔😔

Thank you @verbose-vespertine for the tag!
I have to level, I’ve been around so inconsistently recently that I have absolutely no idea who’s done this or not or who’s around at the moment, so please forgive me for not tagging anybody ...
1. When did you start writing fanfiction?
Well, when I was about 9 I wrote my own version of A New Hope where Luke was a girl. I did shit like that for years and years as a child/teenager before I knew ‘fanfiction’ existed. Just for me, scribbling in my notebooks at the back of my class, making everybody girls.
I’ve toyed with writing different bits and pieces of fic over the years, but if we’re talking posting it online for other people’s consumption, well, I posted my first Ellezhi/Lana fic on 31 January 2020 ...
2. Of the 6 works I have on AO3:
1 on hiatus (I haven’t announced it’s on hiatus, I just wrote Chapter 1 in a frenzy and Chapters 2-to-a-million are [white noise])
2 one shots (as I understand one-shots, that is, fics in one scene?)
1 series or collections
6 are ship fics (why fic if you don’t ship)
0 are general
0 is sibling
0 is friend
0 misc (I mean, in a sense, they’re all misc)
3. I have written:
Everything I’ve ever posted online is SWTOR
4. My longest completed/unfinished fic is:
That would be (at least at times) you knew me, my robot-fucking magnificent octopus magnum opus.
23,343 words of SCORPIO porn/torture/torture porn, which to date has prompted one entire person to enquire, in tones of horrified disdain, why anyone would write something like this
My Devinahl backstory fic Riddle was probably about the same length if not longer, but I only posted it on tumblr, so I can’t check.
5. My most popular work (by kudos) is:
My very first fic Literary Appreciation with 51 entire kudos! It ruthlessly mocked Tharan Cedrax and was told from the POV of Lana Beniko, so it’s probably the least off-putting thing I’ve written.
6. My most common additional tag is:
I’m not sure if this counts as an additional tag, but I’ve used ‘Dubious Consent’ twice and I don’t feel good about it.
7. My AO3 user name is:
MissSpookyEyes, what else?
8. Bonus fact to get to lucky number 8:
As a child, I also wrote a partially-gender-flipped version of Lord of the Rings (BOOK, because this was before the films came out, I’m old) in which Aragorn, Frodo, Merry and Pippin were all female. Queen!Aragorn married Legolas, Pippin married Faramir; Arwen, who was a man in only the most technical sense, married Eowyn because somebody had to, and Merry married Eomer. I’m so sorry, I was, I think, around 12 but definitely old enough to know better.
