Eugenia: Have you ever thought to yourself of all you could have achieved if only you had another pair of arms?
Alastair: *nods seriously* Every time before bad
Eugenia: let's all say our guesses in three. One, two, three!
Chrisopher: Grab four lemon tarts
Alastair: make insulting hand gestures at Charles
Eugenia: Cuddle Kamala twice as much at same time!
Kamala: Play that hard piano section!
Grace: Aim a gun and drive a robbery car at the same time
Kamala: I like Eugenia's idea... but I feel like we should discuss Grace's.

“I thought, “I want to die. I want to die more than ever before. There’s no chance now of a recovery. No matter what sort of thing I do, no matter what I do, it’s sure to be a failure, just a final coating applied to my shame. That dream of going on bicycles to see a waterfall framed in summer leaves—it was not for the likes of me. All that can happen now is that one foul, humiliating sin will be piled on another, and my sufferings will become only the more acute. I want to die. I must die. Living itself is the source of sin.” -Dazai Osamu, No Longer Human
happy birthday dazai.

Hello, dear! You've been visited by the random character question fairy! :D ~☆
What is your character's greatest fear and why? Have they ever faced this fear? What would happen if they confronted this fear (again, if they have already)?
Mind you she's the kind of woman who doesn't let fear rule her life, even if it shakes her to the core. That confident, brazen, defiant personality goes out the window at the thought of being back in a cage. It isn't necessarily the cage itself that scares her, moreso the idea of being alone again. Hyacinth would honestly be mentally, physically, and spiritually broken. She'd completely give up on living.
I'd say her biggest fear lies in failure. Specifically not being able to protect the people who need her most, whether that's people in her town, or her loved ones. This fear is sort of her fuel though, because she lost someone in the snap and that drove her to become a vigilante. I don't think going through it again would affect her much, it would just put another chip on her shoulder, and she'd probably look at it like "You can't save everyone".
Her biggest fear is love, because its another thing that clouds one's judgement, and makes you vulnerable in ways you normally might not be. She's been in love before and it always had bad consequences.
I'd say for this girl, her biggest fear is not being able to do her best. Layla is what I like to call a "selective perfectionist" because not everything has to be perfect, but when it comes to baking or upholding other tasks she's given. If she doesn't give it her all she's not only disappointed in herself, but afraid she might disappoint someone else as well.
Someone stealing his acorns! Or anything from his trove of tiny treasures, even though he's known to move it from place to place. It's definitely Girven's biggest fear. He worked hard on finding all those shiny trinkets, odd shaped rocks, pretty leaves, and acorn tops.
His greatest fear is tied with either not being able to regain his memories, or losing what little humanity he has left. While Valek has slowly made peace with the fact he can't go back to the life he had before, he still doesn't quite understand what he is, and what it means for him in the future.
