(i have to tag these all by hand so yeah sorry)

Is oral fixation common with autism? Is that a stim? I’m new to the community (I was diagnosed with aspergers almost 6 years ago, but I’m just now actually reaching out into the community) and not familiar with all these terms… but I constantly have something in my mouth. I used to smoke cigarettes, but I’ve had horrible asthma my whole life and this clearly only made it worse, so a friend turned me onto e-cigarettes (excellent by the way, love them, my lungs are much happier), but even when I don’t want nicotine, I constantly have something in my mouth. Pens, small flashlights (though this is mostly utility - I’m an automotive technician and I only have two hands lol), chewing gum, cough drops… is this stimming? I don’t understand 🙈🙈

(Please use the ask box next time, it makes it easier to answer stuff)

That’s a common form of stimming, yeah. There are chewable things specifically intended for this that are a lot safer to put in your mouth– maybe try stimtastic, chubuddy, or ARK therapeutic?

Shuffle your music + put your favourite lyrics.

1. Street Fighting Man - The Rolling Stones
Well, what can a poor boy do?
Except to sing for a rock ‘n’ roll band.
'Cause in sleepy London town.
There’s just no place for a street fighting man.

2. All I Could Do Was Cry - Etta James
Yeah and now the wedding’s over.
Rice, rice has been thrown over their heads.
For them life has just begun,
But mine is at an end.

3. Ziggy Stardust - David Bowie
So where were the spiders, while the fly tried to break our balls?
With just the beer light to guide us.
So we bitched about his fans and should we crush his sweet hands?

4. Neon River - Keane
She said the neon on the river will light my way.
And everything that we’ve been dreaming of making real one day

5. Memory Motel - The Rolling Stones
We spent a lonely night at the Memory Motel.
It’s on the ocean, I guess you know it well.
It took a starry night to steal my breath away.

6. See It So Clear - Tom Chaplin
But all these solid certainties,
They had sadness underneath.
And all these happy memories,
They have spaces in between.

7. We Had It All - The Rolling Stones
I know that we can never lives these times again.
So I’ll let these dreams take me back to where we’ve been.
Then I stay there with you just as long as I can.

8. Mannish Boy - Muddy Waters
Everything gonna be alright this mornin’
Now, when I was a young boy
At the age of five,

The greatest man alive.

I’m age twenty-one.
I want you to believe me, honey,
We having lots of fun.

9.Goodnight Irene - Lead Belly

To jump in the river and drown.

Goodnight Irene, Goodnight Irene.

anderfeelsy  asked:

so I don't know if you've answered this already, but how do you think Anders would react to finding out there was a cure for tranquility? And that he had the cure on hand?

I have vague memories of perhaps talking about this, but I don’t know when that was lmao, so I’m gonna do it again (if I even did before…).

I think his initial reaction to there being a cure, just generally, would be happiness and relief. This fate, this thing he’d feared for his entire life, this thing that was considered worse than death was curable. Every mage who had been unjustly made Tranquil (read: all of them) could be cured of this horrific fate. It would feel great, and I think he’d want to help spread and implement the use of the cure (something he is uniquely suited to do, of course, and Justice would be 100% into that; righting the greatest wrong ever perpetrated against a mage? Fuck yeah. And Anders could help them adjust after they’re cured as well, since we know that’s tough, and he would be excellent at that). He would also know that if the unthinkable happened to Hawke, if they were a mage, that he could fix it immediately. That would also be immensely comforting, for obvious reasons.

But then there would be a bitter part to it after the immediate relief. Because he would remember Karl, he would realize that he didn’t need to die, that Anders had had the cure inside of him the whole time. Karl could’ve been saved right then and there, but he didn’t know. If he had’ve, that would’ve been a significant thing in his life. I honestly do wonder if Anders would’ve even been interested in Hawke if he’d had Karl around. Karl’s loss had a huge impact on his life, and it would fucking hurt to know it could’ve been avoided all this time.

Of course, he would have Hawke to comfort him. It would help soothe the sting because it was over now, and you can never go back. There was no way he could’ve known. He’d definitely cry over it though, I think. Karl meant a lot to him (I don’t care what he says, he loved him), and the knowledge that he could’ve saved him would definitely cut deep.

But! Anders finding out about the cure for Tranquility, and that he’s uniquely suited to help with that may cause him to realize that he’s immune to it. Which would be… well, I think that would cause him to nearly collapse with relief. The thing he feared most can’t be done to him. The worst thing that could ever happen to him is confirmed to be impossible. And that would be another tearful moment, but those would be of joy rather than sadness, for once.
