I always think its amusing when there is 25+ views on a thread, and zero comments.

Well, Mimi has a fetish for pain.
As I saw the creature, I was as white as an egg. I was so scared I might crack from fear. As the humanoid began to lunge after me, I was walking on egg shells from how scared I was. It grabbed me, took me to its station, and cracked me open. The last thing I saw were my yellow insides cooked on a pan. Human nature is as evil as a rotten egg.

Man I have not posted here in a long time. And BL has become BA. Very fitting. So since I haven't been on in a while, anyone got any crazy new theories they want to share? Those usually turn out interesting. And when I say theories I mean anything GT. Maybe to get this thread kickstarted.

So has she always been a masochist or did Him made her into one?

It looks like Mimi cut her hair to look like Raven. I think her fetish for pain is a coping mechanism for all the trauma Him put her through.

You can't make some one into a masochrist. Well, not in quite the sense that you might be thinking. I'll just go get my other post again.

I was thinking it was on there from super glue, but I guess this works too.


Mimi's love for pain isn't curious at all its cruel and sick, Him put Mimi through so much sick torture she developed a sense of pleasure from it as a way to cope with it.


Welcome to the site, Crimson. I hope you enjoy your time here.

I don't think Him is going to care at all. He might find it curious, but he doesn't seem like the sort of parent that would punish his kids for burning a chakra gem into their forehead, or for them cutting their own hair.

As for the pain, it is curious. Its curious that she has developed a sense of satisfaction towards pain, more specifically, Sadomasochism or masochism. We have no idea, although you could suspect, that it came from Him torturing Mimi. HOWEVER, I am inclined to believe otherwise since that is not how sadomasochism or masochism develops. It usually develops as a source of therapeutic escape from stress, responsibility, or guilt. So I would suspect that Mimi's love of pain doesn't come from torture sessions, but a way to escape (possibly) her guilty over killing her mother and the death of her friends. Its a way to escape the life she is currently in.

Now, psychologists are completely certain what the causes are of this. I have presented a single theory of two or three ideas. Here is some further reading that I found to be beneficial towards investigating this.

Well, that depends if it is an actual chakra gem. I don't think it is, thus it shouldn't have any effect on her powers.


Him didn't really make her into becoming a masochrist, that would have a tendency to develop a more sadistic personality. However the results and Mimi's own internal feelings of what happened to her to get to this point could.

EXCELLENT. SOMEONE CAUGHT ON TO THIS, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

It's still creepy, no matter how much sense it makes.

We've seen how Mimi is about pain before, although chronologically-speaking the fight with Junior and Minnie happens a lot later. Then, too, it was one of the few times Mimi has even made a sound.

I find it more interesting that that Mimi is in an emotional place to make the decision and take the initiative, not just to accept the chakra gem even though it came from a hero and friend we can assume is dead, but to make it, more or less, a permanent part of herself. You could say she's forged it as a part of herself in the Fires of Hell -- and while hair grows, we know that Mimi prefers the widow's peak hairstyle over the hime cut she had before.

HIM would certainly take an interest in Mimi's decisions, however only in the sense of a mad scientist observing one of his favourite experimental subjects. But that might also just be me after only recently reading Amazing Spider-Man: Spider Island. The Jackal is one creepy dude. I think HIM would approve.
