Absolutely, it was a fascinating piece of insight into your past; an interesting story in and of itself, and I'm always interested in learning about the pasts of friends. How long was it until you learned that the bully made a full recovery? I hope not too long, because that could be traumatic for a kid as young as you were, thinking they might have caused permanent damage. You did a good thing, though, in putting yourself out there to teach someone to treat others with decency rather than as their own personal playthings.
I've never watched Tiger & Bunny, so the Kotetsu Kaburagi is a bit lost on me; but your mom is like Mami Tomoe? That's awesome. And you have a younger sister that you would liken to Kirino? I hope you like her more than you do Kirino herself. ^^; And your other little sister is similar to Kuroneko, eh? Is she single? I'm kidding don't kill me
Hmm... the ages of 10 through 17, huh. Was there a reason you mellowed out afterwards from 18 onwards, or did you just move on to different kinds of environments? If you graduated high school at 17 and entered the work force at 18, I could imagine traits like Sayaka's being less in demand, since public schooling isn't... always the most mature of environments. You must have been quite the role model in high school, though; the supremely enthused, proactive Student Council president with large streaks of Sayaka in your personality. A very cool person, sounds like.
I'll use the letter "M" to refer to the delinquent. Real life story and more in the spoiler space below.
Spoiler for Put in spoiler spave to save space.:
One of my classmates through K-8 was M. M was a bit of a rough case. He could be a bit of a nuisance in class. He'd sometimes try to intimate other male classmates, and he'd sometimes tease/pick on girls in our class to the point that they told him to cut it out but he wouldn't cut it out. I just felt he was out of control. Teachers had real problems settling him down. So I tried to stop him. When he wouldn't listen to reason, it became a bit physical.
We had two fights. I was probably 11/12 at the time. Both of us were built like small bears - Large upper torsos and big, thick arms. Think of two big bulky boys, about 5'6'' each (I'm 6'4'' today).
In the first fight, we exchanged some pushes, shoves, punches, and kicks. A teacher broke us up, and each of us had some scrapes and bruises to show for the fight.
Later on, we had a rematch directly outside the school entrance. At the time, I was a big pro wrestling fan. After we exchanged a couple pushes, I actually went for a bodyslam, and it worked! Unfortunately, it worked too well, given that we were fighting on concrete pavement. ^_^;;
He was knocked out cold from the bodyslam, and IIRC, he sustained a head injury. I "won" the fight, and I was glad that it did seem to stop his bullying, but I did regret him getting hurt that badly. He wasn't the same after that. He didn't pick fights as often, and he didn't bully people as much.
You should know that part of the reason I like Sayaka a lot is that she reminds me so much of what I was like between the ages of 10 and 17.
If I had to compare my family to anime characters...
Father - Kotetsu Kaburagi
Mother - Mami Tomoe
Blonde Younger Sister - Kirino Kousaka
Dark-Haired Younger Sister - Kuroneko
Me - A cross between Sayaka and Tari Tari's Wien.
Ironically, I was afraid I was getting a bit too harsh on the latest Prisma Illya thread, so it's good to know that this probably wasn't the case.
I think that Miyu's character can still come out of this fine, but it's just a silly risk, imo. Also, as much as I love drama, I feel like Prisma Illya is pushing it a bit too much. Honestly, I would have preferred a full breather episode before getting heavily back into the drama. Poor Illya deserved more of a break than this.
Agh, I got an email notification that you tried to send me a PM but my inbox was full. I've cleared out some of my messages, so please send it again if you saved it elsewhere or feel up to writing it again.
