This Game of Thrones prequel will take place during the civil war that House Targaryen took part in—the one that came to be known as “The Dance of Dragons,” according to Weiss. The anticipated series is tentatively set to air in 2022, but time will tell if the pandemic or other outlying factors impact its release date.

Now, fans know that Steve Toussaint has been cast as Corlys Velaryon, Eve Best has been cast as Princess Rhaenys Velaryon, Rhys Ifans will play Otto Hightower, Sonoya Mizuno will play Mysaria. These are some great choices for the Game of Thrones prequel. These are four of the more prominent roles in the series, but we will, no doubt, learn about more actors joining the cast in the coming months as well.

In this series, we will get to learn what happened during the Dance of Dragons, and without a doubt, we’ll also get to see some more dragons. And what can beat that?

Izuku Midoriya’s Bumble Profile: He’s Your Number 1 Hero

Welcome back to another Literary anti-f*ck boy profiles. The show where, for the month of love, we will be looking at some characters who don’t text you randomly at two a.m to ask, “U up?” after ghosting you for days on end.

Next up we have Izuku Midoriya from the popular manga and anime ‘My Hero Academia’. And I guess spoilers if you’ve never seen or read My Hero. He is in high school but our bet is that he will stay sweet and adorable when he is ready to date. Spoilers, duh! But not too many.

If you somehow don’t know what My Hero Academia is, let’s get into it! My Hero Academia is a popular Japanese manga turned anime. Society had evolved into people being born with powers or quirks, Quirks are put into three categories, Emitter quirks which can be used physically like 1A’s Todoroki Shoto’s Half-Ice, Half Hot, which allows him to use fire and ice attacks. Transformation quirks, where the individual can change their bodies, like a student in Class 1B, Tetsutetsu, who can turn his skin into steel. The last category is Mutant where the individual as physical abnormality that coincide with powers. Like 1A’s Tsuyu Asui who have the attributes of a frog; the hoping, having a super long tongue, great at swimming etc.

The vast population have them and they all range in strength, varieties, lethalness and severity. But there are a few who are born without quirks and that’s where we get to Izuku Midoriya. Izuku is a super fan of heroes and his biggest role model is All Might, the number 1 hero. Even he didn’t have a quirk for most of his life he was determined to the best he could but of course it crushed him when his peers like Bakugo where being praised for their powerful quirks while he didn’t have one.

Until one day there is a villain attack. The villain gets a hold on Bakugo and even without a quirk Midoriya rushes in to help anyway.

All Might notices his spirit and believe that he would be a fitting successor for All For One, his quirk that has been passed down through the generations. Midoriya jumps at the chance and promises All Might that he will make him proud and prove that he is truly worthy for this power. They until the entrance exam for U.A, one of the top high schools in Japan with an incredible hero program.

The test doesn’t go has expected. And since Midoriya’s control over All For One is slim to the least he believes he didn’t pass. But he finds out that he’s been accepted and starts going to the school of his dreams. He meets his class from 1A and it clear that everyone has a great grip on their quirk so he is more determined than ever.

He and his classmates deal with not only regular school work but also constant hero training with pro heroes like their homeroom teacher, Aizawa. They have to deal with homework, training to fight villains and ACTUAL villains. At many points in the show they have faced off against villains who were really out here trying to kill these kids! Bakugo even gets kidnapped; lord knows they are dealing with a lot of PTSD. And of the attacks happened in their first two semesters at the school.  I need U.A. to get a counseling program quickly!

But all in all, Midoriya is a sweetie pie and deserves all the happiness in the world. He is going to be the very best that no one ever was!
