Asano Gakushu didn’t know what to expect when he jumped off the bridge. He thought it would all just end. The pain, the hurt. The sinking feeling of uselessness.
He did not expect to come face to face with the ghost of the same boy who jumped off this very bridge a decade ago.
“Hey, Asano Jr. C‘mon, take a seat. I’ve been waiting for you. Let’s have a chat before I send you back.” A bright faced Ikeda chirps.
There’s a pause. He stares.
“Wait. Send me back?” Gakushu feels a crippling pang of fear run through him, “No. Please. Don’t—I can’t go back there—“
“One year ago. That’s when it all started going downhill, for you, didn’t it? I’m sending you back one year. And maybe you can save more lives than just yours.”
Then another voice speaks up, echoing Gakushu’s thoughts, “Ikeda, I’m perfectly fine being dead. I’ve told you there’s no need—“
Gakushu turns to see a yellow octopus. The Yellow Octopus. He sinks to his knees.
He thought his life was a mess, who knew death was worse?
—Gakushu gets a chance to redo the last year of his life. With one simple decision, it leads him on a completely different path. And just maybe, that’s not entirely a bad thing.
- Part 1 of Is That Me or the Fear Talking?
Gakuhou wakes up one day and suddenly he's a decade older than he last remembered, he's in charge of a school, his no-longer-a-toddler-now-a-teenager son hates him, and his head hurts.
Or: Amnesiac Gakuhou is glad he read ahead in his parenting books because he's no where near equipped to handle a fourteen year old, and also Gakushuu, do you know why there are so many confidential folders on my desk?
Asano Gakushuu wakes up one day and realizes he has no idea who he is. All of his memories are completely gone.
Rather than submit to the Mortifying Ordeal of letting people know he has amnesia, he decides to see how long he can last without anyone realizing that something's wrong with him.
A morpheme is the smallest part of a word that still has meaning. If you take away everything else, you still know what it means. When you take away everything else of me, this is what remains.
...It's mostly good hair and a love of language. Everything else is take it or leave it, really.
(In which a very sarcastic guy gets reborn into a small poisoner's clan in Konoha, and accidentally saves a life. Things change.)
