Joanna did love me. As much as she loved Tywin, up until near the end. As much as she could love anything that wasn’t a metal chair, or a golden chain.

Q: hey i was wondering, do you think aomine threw the ball at kise’s head on purpose? :) i wanna know your opinion!
Anon-san asked to be reblogable
A: All this schemes and thoughts are mine so they’re probably wrong or confused, so don’t take this to heart!
(I’m not sure about the structure of Teikou High school ‘cause there isn’t a official map or anything..but watching ep.23 you can clearly see how’s the school’s exit).
Shall we start?
Well first Aomine was playing basketball in the gym, while Kise was going through that path to go home (or modelling, dunno).
The ball could be rolled out of the gym because someone managed to intercept his-aomine- passage (which I doubt) or maybe after he scored a basket (which I think is the case)
In all the cases, there’s a limit of the action angle (and even in the highest point, Aomine wouldn’t have hit Kise).
and if he had done so, he would hit him on the side, not the back.
Let’s eliminate the option that the ball on its own curved 90°, cause well..it’s scientifically impossible, and let’s go ahead.
Probably the ball hit the wall, and Aomine -after leaving the gym- picked it up. From that position it would have been easy to hit Kise’s back.
Then again.. when you’re playing and you try to stole the ball from someone, merely place your hand on where the ball will be landing will deflect the ball away. usually you try to deflect it as near the ground as possible.
Even when someone is going to shoot (the case in which the ball is in the highest position) when you try to stop him, you “smash” the ball against the ground.
In all the cases the ball is directed downwards.
so, again..in all the cases after the collision with the floor, the ball should just rolling out of the gym, right?
But this is the scene of the “clash”
The ball it’s way tooooo high!
It’s impossible! the position of the gym (in front of the building with windows), the way the ball hit Kise precisely from behind (not even slightly on the side), but more important the trajectory is that of a parabola.
(Kise wasn’t hit behind the knees on in the lower zone of his body).If you see the scene of ep.23, you’ll see that the initial height and trajectory angle of the object (ball) originate at the same height of Aomine’s chest. And every good basketball player know that for being stealer you have to keep a low center of mass (so usually -excepting for shooting- when you play, the ball is always low, never goes above torso)
The only way to create a parabola is shooting -so on purpose-
Aomine didn’t even notice that Midorima was in his own class,
but when he bumped into Kise (2nd year of middle school) he already knew his name, and his “job”.

i wonder if they have any idea how lucky they are to have you.
