I've wanted to make a post on why ou\mota is canonly and immutably toxic but then I'd have to basically do character analyses for the both of them because one of the main problems is that people who ship ou\mota generally have a very poor understanding of their characters and their dynamic in canon.
They've all convinced themselves of this idea that they're "two sides of the same coin," and that if "they could only understand that they have the same goals, they would get along," but they don't actually have any canon proof to support this claim, it's more akin to wishful thinking that they're asserting as fact when it's really, really not.
Every single point I've seen made in defense of this ship can be disproved by simply going back and looking at the story again. There really is no room for guessing at what their relationship is/could be. We already know, and it's Not Good.

@weirdgirlsam tagged me :-) thank you!
rb with the meaning/origin of your url, your favourite color, and tag at least 5 people who put something on your dash that made you smile
well! my url is just derived from “post-leftism” and it’s a url i hoarded in i think around 2018 or 2019. then i figured when i came back i could use it to anonymize myself and be a cool person again. i still have lots of other saved urls that i could switch to but i’m quite pleased with this one even though i’m not a post-leftist and in fact am not a big fan of post-leftism in general
my favourite colour… well i just don’t really have one! all colours are useful and have their own place!
umm… can’t really think of anyone… maybe @periareolar who did put a funny post on my dash and i did laff. :-P

He was just getting into Mind Wide Open when the rumbling of his empty belly sent him to the water fountain again, believing liquid could quiet the growl in his gut.”

i keep trying to wrap my head around it & i really cant. like i really don’t understand why canon/spin-off w/e keeps trying to frame yu as somehow being okay with adachi? idk i just think anything post-reveal about adachi is a touchy subject for yu. there is so much that happens in the ameno-sagiri fight that fucks him up for years. i think adachi even managed to form triggers in yu that he never had previously. he absolutely gave him trust issues bc how many people feel like that behind what they’re projecting. as much as yu believes adachi can be redeemed, it’s still a hard subject bc yu thought adachi was his friend. but yu’s traits are so much like a dog’s that if you kick or abuse it, any trust between you is gone. & a dog will show its teeth eventually & won’t want you anywhere near it. it won’t forget what you did or how you hurt it, it will hold you responsible for your actions. yu will not let you back into his heart after you taint a relationship or hurt him. a bond can still be negative, which i think does have interest with the ideas behind arcana bc we’ve always seen them as positive in relationships with a wildcard. but after watching the accomplice ending too, siding with adachi was the worst decision he could have ever made in just so many ways that i’m sure he & at least two others are no longer alive bc of his betrayal. there’s no way those three can recover after what yu did. yu’s too loyal to his friends & family & has too many questions regarding adachi to really bother with what he has to say. unless someone can provide me a valid explanation for why yu could even remotely be comfortable in the same room as adachi, i just fail to see it.
