...quite unique

29-Anakin Skywalker

29. “Are you blushing?”

You growled as you parried off of Anakin’s lightsaber. Your fellow Jedi just smirked in amusement. You two had been sparring for the last half hour and you had yet to successfully go on the offensive. There was a certain reason why too.

“Your skill it quite unique, Y/N,” he complimented you.
You grit your teeth attempting to focus. “Useless too.”
He shook his head, straightening his posture. “No. Just more raw.”

You cocked your head to the side in confusion. Anakin chuckled making your stomach flutter. You closed your eyes a moment to calm down as well as refocus…again.

“Alright. How do I clean it up?” you asked.
Anakin raised his hands, and lightsaber, defensively. “No attacks?”
You nodded. “No attacks.”

Anakin glided over to you, sheathing his own weapon. He walked around behind you. Gently, he placed his hands on your core and back. He was definitely closer than he needed to be.

“Firstly, tighten your core. When you use your core, you’ll have more power in your swing.”
You swallowed. “And?”
Anakin placed his hands on yours. “Loosen your drip on the hilt a bit. Your knuckles don’t have to be white every time.”
“Th-Thank you,” you stuttered.

Anakin glanced down at your bashful face. He couldn’t help but grin at you. Your face was flushed red.

Are you blushing?
“What?” you panicked, “No. Y-Your blushing!”
He chuckled, placing a kiss on your cheek. “Right,” he drawled, “Explains your lack of focus.”

You slapped your face with your palm. You hadn’t been as sneaky as you thought.

Yuri on Ice BD audio commentary translation - Volume 3

Translation of the audio commentary of the BD/DVD vol.3, by Mitsurou Kubo and Junichi Suwabe, voice actor of Victor Nikiforov. I really wanted to post this before the weekend because I’m not going to be home a lot, so I decided “well, I might just not sleep tonight and translate this instead”… This time there are some parts that I translated almost integrally. They talk a lot about Victor, especially Suwabe’s struggle to get into the role. It provides insight while at the same time not providing… since apparently it’s very hard to guess what is “right” when talking about Victor. I’m sure you will get what I mean if you read what they say…

The commentary is only for episode 6. Episode 5 has no commentary. It’s not a full translation but I summarized most of what they said, and as I wrote above some parts are almost completely translated. As in the previous ones, the format is different from normal interview translations, and you can find my comments too (mostly in brackets).

Translation under the post because it’s long. Enjoy!

1. Wanderer by @roseok

2. The Joker by @astro-child

Suicide Squad!AU - BTS (ongoing)

So, I’m still not over how well this goes, with Jungkook as the Joker, and Jimin as Harley Quinn?? I’ve kinda been bugging Shanel over how much I liked it, but I needed her to know that I really liked it! cx

5. Masquerade by @happy-meo

Reader x Jimin x Hoseok - Office!AU x Hosts!AU (Completed - 4 parts with a sequel which I also recommend)

Ah, this one had me binge reading for ages cx It also had me conflicted between Jimin and Hoseok, I couldn’t choose who I wanted (Y/N) to be with cx But it was honestly written really well, I enjoyed it ^.^ (warning: This one does have slight smut in it cx)

6. Red Skies by @jungk0oksthighs

Werewolf!AU - BTS (Completed - 10 parts)

This had me curious to find out more, and it was interesting that Jungkook is the alpha here, rather than one of the older guys like Jin or Yoongi cx

7. Strings by @minsuxga

The feels with this one was too much, ah my heart T_T But it was so so well written, the details and everything, and the ending, ah my poor heart T_T

9. Wishful Wings by @writeiolite

Jimin x Reader - Royals!AU (One shot I believe cx)

10. Heartless by @bangtan-spells

Namjoon x Reader - Fantasy!AU (One shot I think c:)

11. sinners to saints by @seoulscapes

Jimin x Reader - Spy!AU (Ongoing)

12. the heir by @taegonia

Jimin x Reader (I am literal trash for this boy as you can see cx) - Mafia!AU (I’m not sure of the status of this one)

Looks like I found myself a new fanfic to binge read cx I really like how it’s written, I’ve only started reading this, but I’m already really liking it so I thought I should add it to this Fic Rec list ^_^


I will definitely be adding to this in the near future, but for now, please do check these out and support the writers! I know as a writer myself how gratifying it feels when someone leaves feedback on a story, so please do go read these, I assure you they’re good! ^_^

Guys, seriously, watch this show.

Seriously. This show doesn’t get nearly as much love as it deserves. So I'ma do a full-fledged review right now. Y’all sit yo asses down and listen.

Ruby Gloom is a canadian kids’ cartoon about a young girl and her group of friends. It’s quite a unique show in many different ways. For one, it’s not your typical diabetes inducing show for toddlers. It’s actually in a very..well, gloomy setting. Nightime is dark as you would expect, and during the day its perpetually cloudy and overcast. Heck, in the one episode it was actually sunny, the characters were doing everything they could to bring the clouds back! The main characters all live together in a mansion on top of a large hill, where most of the episodes occur. 

Now. The Characters:

The eponymous Ruby Gloom. A young girl(Some fans have speculated she’s a living doll) who, according to the show’s tagline, is ‘the happiest girl in the world.’ However, shes not the typical happy-all-the-time, overly hyperactive and somewhat annoying character. She’s an optimist, through and through, and tries to see the bright side of everything. She’s also a pretty calm person. She doesn’t jump around and yell about how great everything is, but she’s happy. She also has a pet cat named Doom Kitty, who has quite the personality of her own.

Skull-Boy is the brains of the group. He’s just a teensy bit awkward and is trying to find out who he is, or more, who his family is. He’s a  jack-of-all-trades, probably because pretty much every episode he tries a new profession stating that “I must be related to a long line of ______!” Ruby also has a crush on him.

Iris is the wild child. She loves taking risks and going to extremes to have fun and is cheerful and hyperactive. Sometimes she can be unintentionally insensitive and a bit too wild, but she’s never purposely mean. She has a giant flying worm named Squig.

Misery is pretty much the opposite of Ruby. She’s a fan favorite and most fans have come to the conclusion that she is a banshee. She is a disaster magnet and has the worst luck, and constantly gets struck by lightning. Despite always having bad luck and a generally gloomy demeanor, she’s not depressed. She has a place to live and friends that love her, and is generally happy with what she has.

Frank and Len are brothers who love to create music. Frank is usually smarter one who often gets annoyed by his brother’s stupidity and antics, but sometimes can be just as dumb as his brother, depending on the writer. Len is the dimmer of the two and doesn’t always get things. They are actually incredibly talented musicians.

Poe is a very posh crow. He loves to hear himself talk and can be a bit arrogant at times, but he’s still a good person and a good friend. 

Boo-Boo is a mischievous little ghost that loves to pull pranks. He tries to be scary, but instead everyone finds him cute. He also can be stubborn at times.

Lastly, my personal favorite, is Scaredy Bat. Scaredy Bat is a shy little guy with an indian accent who’s afraid of everything. He gets nervous very easily and is also quite paranoid. Despite his timid personality, he’s the extremely talented drummer of Frank and Len’s band and forgets  his fear behind the kit. He is also the only one that Boo-Boo can scare.


Woah, that got longer than expected, but I got the point across. ‘You can find most episodes on YouTube. Seriously, give it a shot. 

kokkynly  asked:

Hey I was wondering if there were any fics where Harry or Draco gets a snake and Harry can talk to it. Thank you so much!!

I actually had so much fun making this rec list! I forgot how much I loved stories where Harry spoke to snakes <33

  • A Sound Like Serpents Singing - by Lomonaaeren (12k)
    When Draco Malfoy wants a magical snake for his son, he turns to the best in the magical world—serpent-breeder Harry Potter. Harry, who thought that all his past grudges had been settled, is startled by the way he responds to Malfoy. For many reasons.
    (Lomonaaeren has been able to create a rich and detailed world full of numerous, intricate details about snakes and snake breeding. It was such a fun read, a real pleasure to the eyes)

  • Hyperion by Lomonaaeren (6k)
    Scenes in the life as Harry gets to know Draco and Scorpius and breeds a snake capable of seeing the future in the stars.
    (This is the sequel to A Sound Like Serpents Singing. I loved reading this because it brought you right back into the world that Lomonaaeren created for A Sound Like Serpents Singing. Marvellous!)

  • Serpentes - by xErised (29k)
    It’s a shame that Draco Malfoy looks so good stripping in a club with stolen snakes, because Auror Harry’s got a job to do.
    (With the help of a viper named Bacon, Harry is investigating Malfoy’s gay dance bar that doubles as headquarters for an illegal snake trafficking ring. This story is amazingly hot, with so much sexual tension going on between our boys! There was heapsss of sexy scenes and you’ll honestly fall in love with Bacon as he’s the king of sass)

  • Turn - by Saras_Girl (306k)
    One good turn always deserves another. Apparently.
    (Harry has a snake called Frank. This fic destroyed me! A strange man gives Harry a glimpse into a life where after the Sectumsempra incident, Harry offers his Help to Draco. He’s transported to this alternate reality, but because it’s only a glimpse, Harry has to come back to his real life. It’s devastating when he comes back though, as he’s fallen so in love with the alternate reality where he and Draco are together. All of the characters are stunningly portrayed and I was completely engrossed in this story)

  • Draco’s Secret Box - by seri-kun (vanijane) (2k)
    Harry is bored while waiting for Draco to finish his bath and so, his pet snake has decided to help him pass the time–
    “Whatever is inside this box often leaves Draco with a loss of time. Surely this would benefit you right now.”
    Harry was certain that wanking off while Draco was humming in the showers wasn’t proper and if Draco would catch him, Harry was sure Draco would never let him live it down.
    (Harry’s a Slytherin and he has a pet snake that shows him all the letters Draco ever wrote to him, but never sent. Very cute and adorable!)

  • The Sounds of Sibilance - by create_serenity (Sivany) (5k)
    Draco really wished he’d never suggested buying that bloody snake!
    (Draco and Harry are auror partners. Draco has the grand idea of letting Harry buy a snake to help them out on their missions. Unfortunately for Draco, he has a massive kink for Parseltongue ;) This fic was undeniably hot!)

  • Slithering - by astolat (27k)
    Draco found the nest down in the Manor’s cellars, while he was clearing them out.
    (In which Draco finds Nagini’s nest and raises one of her hatchlings + some Drarry drama and angst)

  • A Brother to Basilisks - by Lomonaaeren (419k)
    AU of PoA. Harry wakes in the night to a voice calling him from somewhere in the castle—and when he follows it, everything changes. Updated every Friday.
    (Harry has a basilisk familiar named Dash - who, by the way, is the most adorable and loyal companion anyone could ever wish for. Once again, Lomonaaeren has created a stunning and utterly captivating universe. I really don’t want to spoil anything more because I love this story so much, and I hope you guys do as well! Warnings: Incomplete, but author updates fic every Friday.)

Extra

  • Coffee, Cakes and Doorknob Snakes - by Omi_Ohmy (40k)
    Harry’s house is trying to kill him, and only one person can help him: pity it’s Draco Malfoy.
    (Okay so Harry’s house, which is Grimmauld Place, is trying to kill him. In comes Draco Malfoy, the best curse-breaker there is, who tries and figures out what’s wrong with Harry’s house. Harry actually speaks a fair amount of Parseltongue in this story to the doorknobs (which have been designed as snakes and come alive when talked to). Let’s not forget how turned on Draco gets whenever Harry speaks parseltongue as well!)

  • Leo Inter Serpentes Series - by Aeternum
    Just one conversation between two eleven year old boys goes slightly differently, and the world changes. Just how much will be different with Harry being sorted into Slytherin, and how much will stay the same?
    (Harry converses with a garden snake every summer, there’s a painting of a snake - called Ollie - who he talks to quite a lot from 2nd year onwards (during this year Harry also tries to teach Draco Parseltongue!), and then Severus gives Harry his very own snake companion in the 5th book (which he named Ladon). Leo Inter Serpentes is a retelling of the whole HP series, but with a Slytherin!Harry. The storyline for each year is quite unique and it’s honestly one of my favourite series/fics out there! Warning: Year 6 is incomplete but author still updates and Year 7 has already been planned out)

  • Cunning and Ambition Series - by MinaAndChao
    One small gesture and one simple sentence change lives, and through it, history.
    (Draco gives Harry a snake for his 13th birthday in the 3rd of the series. Cunning and Ambition has so many heartwarming and heartbreaking moments - I just fell in love with it from the start! Warning: Series goes from years 1-5, but unfortunately year 6 has been abandoned :()

  • Hissy Fit - by dysonrules (28k)
    Harry is an under-utilized Auror and Draco is an auditor for Gringotts. He lives to torment the Ministry and, of course, Harry Potter. He is also a Registered Animagus.
    (Hilarious and fun! It’s where Draco helps Harry on one of his auror missions by transforming into his animagus form - a snake. The banter between Harry and Draco is amazing and you’ll probably suffer from a cuteness overload while reading this story)

The Man on the Train

This is an illustration I did for my friend, Dai’s, PhD thesis. A part of his thesis involved a study around how some gay men (particularly those of a minority status) negotiate being gay outside of mainstream gay culture. One story that really stood out to me as being quite unique and touching involved a middle-aged fellow who has never been intimate with another man, doesn’t necessarily identify as being gay, but spends his days knitting baby socks on park benches and on the train as a way to perform his ‘gayness’. As he still lives at home with an extremely conservative family this is essentially the only way he knows to express his sexuality.

Reasons to watch Elementary
  1. Lucy Liu is one of the best Watsons in the history of Sherlock Holmes adaptations, with her own modern quirks (she’s a baseball fan, likes video games, and retired from being a surgeon to help people as a sober companion)
  2. The series holds its own as both a procedural crime show and as a Sherlock Holmes adaptation
  3. It deals with recovery from addiction unflinchingly and honestly.
  4. The found-family dynamic is one of the best and healthiest on all of tv
  5. Tobias Gragson beats Greg Lestrade (of BBC Sherlock) in the dad character game any day.
  6. LGBT/autistic people/people of color character representation is wonderful.
  7. All characters in the show feel developed and real
  8. The show gets the real dynamic of Holmes and Watson very well (one of the best)
  9. The show understands Holmes’ compassion for those who often don’t get it, and his and Watson’s ability to care for many different types of people as they did in the books.
  10. The Moriarty/Alder characters are very unique, quite a refreshing change in the Holmes genre.
  11. The fandom is small right now but writes kick-ass fanfiction (and there’s a big F/F presence written by women so it’s refreshing in terms of Sherlock holmes fanfic)
  12. There’s a lot of “your family members are people with feelings too” but also “it’s okay to not be close with your family if that’s hard for you” it treats these things with respect and honesty as well.
  13. On that note, there’s also a large amount of respect from Holmes and Watson (and the writers) to the treatment of how close friendships discuss sensitive information, and how to healthily discuss sensitive info, how friendships form naturally and deal with hard things.
  14. Sherlock punches a man in the face because he abused his son.
  15. Sherlock and Joan own a turtle named Clyde, who sometimes serves as a visual aid when they investigate
  16. The acting is incredibly incredibly strong (I could watch the leads tackle hard subject matter and emotionally charged stuff for a lifetime)
  17. Mycroft owns a restaurant chain.
  18. A minor character in the books, Kitty Winter, has a huge role, and a very important one. 
  19. Sherlock struggles socially (but in a real and believable way compared to many other adaptations) but throughout the series grows and makes important connections with others, and uses his own experiences to help.
  20. Holmes and Watson keep bees on the roof of their brownstone (face it, that sounds cute enough alone to watch the series)

The Burren, located in Co.Clare, Ireland, is a limestone region of around 250 square km and is quite unique.

The rough, intriguing and attractive landscape was formed 320 million years ago under a tropical sea. Later it was shaped by ice, hard weather and, of course, human processes. The result is a wonderfully rich, undulating series of swirls, tiers, cliffs, caves, hollows and bare pavements, classical features of what is described as a ‘karst’ landscape.

To anyone who hasn’t read Skip beat: please read Skip Beat.

  • It’s about a girl who gets into the showbiz industry to exact revenge upon a bastard who used her and played with her heart.
  • It’s a wonderful story about a girl learning how to love herself before anything else. 
  • The female protagonist is so very talented and so very strong.
  • On her journey to self discovery she makes new friends and enemies. 
  • Almost all the women in the series are hardcore feminists who value their work and career over their love-life.
  • All the characters have amazing depth to them, and the emotions are very realistic.
  • The female protagonist is a hardcore badass that could possibly kill a man and still look cute doing it.
  • So is the male protagonist. 
  • Hilarious and inspiring side characters.
  • Seriously the complexity of the characters is mind-blowing.
  • It has unique humour which will keep you laughing the whole night.
  • It also has angsty scenes that will make you cry. 
  • It has good slow romance which is completely torturous. 
  • Has fluff so sweet it’ll rot your teeth.
  • The plot is unique and quite frankly a masterpiece.  
  • Basically Skip Beat! has all the elements of an excellent story.
  • Nakamura-sensei (the mangaka) literally planned out everything from the first chapter to the last, so there’s a lot of foreshadowing, which is really cool, and so the story is very grounded. 
  • It also has an anime for those who prefer watching over reading.

Literally the only downside to this manga is the unattractive art style in the beginning, which later on gets better and trust me, the story is so worth it. So please read Skip Beat.

Y/n sat in a chair, comfortable waiting for her food, enjoying the warm sun. She smiled softly as the guy put down her plate and whispered a thank you, barely hearable. She started to eat when a voice made her look up. 

“I’m sorry, but is this seat taken? All the others are taken.” A handsome young man stood in front of her table, and when Y/n realized he was talking to her, she almost dropped her spoon. 

“Uhm, no. I don’t think it is.” She whispered, looking around. He looked just as awkward as she felt, and that was a relief for her. A very awkward silence followed. At the very last, he tried to to talk to her. 

“How are you?” She almost chocked on her food. 

“I-I’m fine.” She whispered and gave him a soft smile. She wasn’t fine, but why would she tell him that. “How are you?” Y/n took a bite of her food, hoping to not look too nervous. 

“Oh, I’m good too.” He smiled weakly at her. he wanted to ask about her mother, he wanted to ask her the things he should, but she seemed so fragile. 

“I see you are eating chicken soup, did you know that is very healthy?” He asked. Y/n smiled and shook her head. 

“I knew it had to be good for something.” She spoke, putting down her spoon. The man smiled and leaned with his arms on the table.

“I’m Spencer, by the way.” He held out his hand, which she took with a slight hesitation. 

“I am Y/n.” She smiled.


For some reason, Spencer kept texting her, and even asked if she would want to meet up. Y/n had no idea why he did that. It wasn’t like she was so interesting the first time they had met. But, finding Spencer quite the unique man, She agreed, although afraid she might mess up. 

They met a few times in that week, and even though Y/n did not want to admit it, she was falling for the smart boy. 


“Hello Y/n. I’m glad you asked me to come.” Spencer said when he sat down. 

“Oh, I’m glad you could come. Would you like some coffee, perhaps?” Y/n asked with a wide smile. She was shy, but started to feel more comfortable around him. 

“Yeah, sure.” He leaned back in his chair. Y/n left for the kitchen, a feeling she couldn’t name in the pit of her stomach, as if something would go wrong, as if she would end up getting hurt. 

When Y/n came back in the living area, her faint smile faded. Spencer was gone. There was no sign that he had ever been here. Maybe he was in the bathroom. She sat down the plate and walked through the long hallway. She heard his voice. But his voice was different then when he spoke to her. 

“Hotch, I think I found something.” Y/n sucked in a breath. He wasn’t in the bathroom, he was in her mothers bedroom. “I haven’t talked about her mother that much, but I know her mother had some troubles in the past, and her father died under strange circumstances.” Y/n heard Spencer move. “I think I just found something that might be proof. A diary.” Y/n had heard enough. Her mother did have some trouble with her mental health, yes. But what would she have done. Silently, Y/n walked back to the living area. 

It took Spencer a few minutes to come back. When he saw her, he seemed to be slightly nervous. 

“I used the toilet, hope thats okay.” He sat down. “Thank you for the coffee.” He added. Y/n sat down too, and leaned in over the table. She wanted to tell him she over heard him. 

“Aren’t you going to ask me?” She leaned in further. “About, you know. My mom.” If he felt uncomfortable, he didn’t let it shine through. 

“Why would I ask about your mother?” 

“Because that’s why you are here, right? that’s why you sat with me in the first place, isn’t it?” Y/n sighted and let herself sink in the chair. “Because you are from the police?” She guessed, avoiding his eyes. 

“Y/n, what are you talking about? Of course not-” He started but Y/n cut him off.

“No need to lie. I overheard you.” She crossed her arms, asking herself where this attitude came from. Truth was her heart was beating hard and tears wanted to escape her eyes. But she hoped she was strong. And wrong. 

“Y/n, I’m so sorry. I’m Dr.Spencer Reid, FBI. We think your mother is killing. She is losing her mind. She is a sadist, Y/n. You need to trust me.”

“No, Spencer. You lied to me. I liked you. And now I should just trust you? My mother isn’t even home. And I suggest you leave right now.” A tear left her eye, no matter how hard she fought. Spencer Stood up, just like Y/n had done. 

“I am very sorry, Y/n.” He whispered. 

The door fell close behind him. Tears spilled over, this was why Y/n never trusted anyone and liked just being on herself. Her mother was a sweet, warm person. She could never hurt someone. The backdoor opened and closed. 

“I was wondering when he would leave.” The voice of her mother sounded. Y/n turned around and wiped away her tears. 

“Well, he’s never coming back, mother.” Her mother gave her a sad smile. Y/n noticed a red stain. Her heart skipped a beat. 

“Mother, I think you spilled some sauce on your shirt.” Her mother looked down with her same smile. 

“Oh, I’ll just tidy it up, then.” Her mother walked to the kitchen, and then Y/n ran. It wasn’t sauce. It was blood. She ran upstairs, into the bathroom, the only room with a lock. She locked the door and called Spencer. 

“Spencer.” Y/n sniffed, sitting in the corner of the room. “You were right. Please come back.” She whispered. 

“Y/n! Stay where you are! I’m coming!” She heard a car. “Whatever you do, do not hang up on me, okay?” He said. Worry laced in his voice as she sniffed again. 

“She is coming.” She whispered, crawling even further into the corner when footsteps were close. 

“Oh, Y/n. I thought you might find out my secret. I was hoping it would take you longer. Now I’ll have to kill you.” She laughed, a laugh she had never heard before. Her laugh sounded crazy. “But where are you?” 

Y/n tried to calm her breath, until she saw the doorknob move. 

“So you are in the bathroom.” Her mother snapped. the door moved, a bang. the door didn’t open. A scream left her mouth, and she couldn’t stop the tears. 

“Spencer, please.” She begged. 

“I will be there. Just a few minutes.” 

“Oh boy, she doesn’t have a few minutes.” Another scream left Y/n’s mouth. A knife shot halfway through the door. Her mother would soon be through the door, and when she did, it would only be a maybe a minute before she died. 

The sound of a car on the driveway comforted Y/n slightly, because her mother still wasn’t in the bathroom. But then the door opened. Her mother looked bewildered. With fast passes, she reached her daughter and pulled her up, knife to her throat. Just at that moment, Spencer came to sight, gun ready to shoot. 

“Let her go.” Spencer said firmly. His hands didn’t shake. Y/n knew her life was in both his and her mothers hands. Y/n slightly moved her body, Spencer could shoot her mothers leg, if he only took his eyes of her mothers face. Y/n tried to catch his gaze, her mother not moving. Y/n’s fingers moved, and Spencer noticed. She touched her leg. Spencer understood. He shot. Her mother screamed and let her go. Y/n stumbled away and Spencer pointed his gun again on the woman. 

“Go outside. I have called for back up.” Spencer briefly looked over at Y/n. She was shaking. She nodded and barely able to stand, she stumbled outside. There indeed were cops, they just stopped. 

“Are you okay?” She nodded at the man and whispered “Bathroom.”. 


Y/n sat on the edge of the ambulance even though she said she was fine. Nothing more then a scratch. She waited until she would see Spencer. Even though it was hard to fathom that her mother had killed at least five people, she pushed that away. She never was one to deal properly with her emotions. 

“Spencer.” She breathed out when she saw him. She stood up but didn’t really do anything besides staring. “I’m sorry. I should have trusted you.” She blurted out. Spencer gave her a small smile. 

“I wouldn’t trust someone if they told me my mom was a sadist after lying about who they were.” Spencer scratched the back of his neck. 

“Can I give you a hug?” She asked. Spencer awkwardly opened his arms.

 “I’m sorry about lying to you.” He said hugging her tightly. “But I really do like you.”

“You do?” Y/n pulled away and smiled up at him. “But why? I am just average. You are a FBI agent.” She whispered. 

“You are everything except average.” Spencer said. “And I would like to take you out. On a real date. you know, once you have dealt with all this, of course.” He added as they parted from their hug. 

“I would actually like that.” Y/n answered flustered. “I really like you.” She whispered, partly hoping he wouldn’t hear that. He did not respond, but the small smile on his flustered face showed her he had heard it. And he liked her too. 

Jung’s Si, Abridged

These articles are an attempt to condense Chapter X of Psychological Types into a more readable format. I’ve tried to stay as true to the original texts as possible. Enjoy!

Foreword

Introverted Sensation

Introverted Sensation is a perception of the physical world that is more concerned with the psychological reaction to objects than their objective qualities. This subjective part of Sensation is most easily demonstrated in art; even a still-life scene will be painted differently from artist to artist, in terms of their treatment of colour, form, and mood. The Si type pours his personal, subjective attitude into his perception of the concrete world, and subsequently behaves as if he were seeing something quite unique and different from what’s actually there.

Si’s perceptions are too organic and genuine to be a product of consciousness. Instead, the subjective factor of sensation is a spontaneous product of the unconscious. It is representative not only of the user’s past experiences, but also the underlying elements of the collective unconscious. The Si type’s perception of the concrete world is adapted to the “eternal truths” – archetypal or even mythological patterns of life.

Si, in a sense, sees the background of the physical world. The important thing isn’t the object, but its mirror-image in the psyche. Objects don’t only appear in their present instance (as Se sees them) but also with a vague sense of their past and future, “somewhat as a million-year-old-consciousness might see them”. Si covers the concrete world with a shroud of meaning, subjective experience and archetypal forms.

The Introverted Sensation Type

This type is oriented by the intensity of his subjective perceptions, rather than the intensity of external stimuli. As a result, it’s impossible for an outsider to reliably predict what will excite or make an impression on him. His introverted attitude stands between himself and objective reality, and in extreme cases, it’s almost as if he were shielding himself from the latter’s influence. He keeps his physical environment in a state of comfortable homeostasis for this reason. The too high is damped down, and the too low raised up, to match his subjective formula. If he’s blindsided by a particularly strong sensation, or his environment is disrupted, his oddly disproportionate reaction will demonstrate his unrelatedness to objective reality.

He might stand out by his calmness and rational self-control in the face of turbulent conditions, but it has nothing to do with rationality. He devalues the objective influences, his subjective perception standing over and above them, and this being the decisive factor in his actions and decisions. If he had a way of expressing himself, for example if he were a creative artist, the irrational and idiosyncratic nature of his perceptions would be apparent. His articulate judging functions are relatively unconscious, so they aren’t much use. Therefore, this type is one of the most difficult to understand, both for himself and for others.

The Si type risks devaluing the objective world so much that he essentially lives in his own reality, where objects and people appear to him as deities and demons. This mythological streak comes from the collective unconscious, whose influence becomes increasingly morbid and overpowering. He might not realise that he sees the world in this way, but it has an unmistakable effect on his actions and judgements, which are increasingly alienated from the objective conditions.

If this happens, the outer influences hit him through Intuition in his unconscious. While dominant Ne tends to be optimistic and has a good nose for exciting possibilities, the neurotic Si type’s inferior Ne is negative and destructive. It compulsively sniffs out every ambiguous, gloomy, and dangerous possibility in the outside world, as well as the ulterior motives of every well-meaning person.

Years ago I worked in a hardware store. There was a regular customer that would come in maybe twice a week. All the staff members recognized his truck in the lot and we’d all do our best to scatter so we wouldn’t have to deal with him.

So this old fart (mid 60s I reckon) comes in one day and his first step in the door is a loud WHOOP noise, almost as if to announce his presence. I manage to duck away and help another customer and avoid him.

He winds up getting one of our managers to basically escort him around the store for an hour and a half, getting super hung up on industrial strength water hoses and their appropriate warranties.

After his self imposed tour, he settles on a 70 dollar hose, pressing “ITS GOT A LIFETIME WARRANTY RIGHT? MEANING FOREVER?!” And we concede to him. He pays, he leaves.

Thirty minutes later, his run down ol Ford truck comes screeching into the parking lot like a bat out of hell, and he gets out with this mutilated water hose in his hands and he looks about ready to spit bees.

He walks in, throws this mangled and dirty mess of what was once a hose on my counter and shrieks
“YALL SAID IT HAD A LIFETIME WARRANTY. I TOOK IT HOME AND RAN OVER IT WITH MY BOX BLADE AND NOW ITS RUINED AND I WANT MY MONEY BACK.”

In desperation, I deferred to the manager again who simply did not know how to handle the situation given to us.

He wound up throwing such a fit he got a full refund despite deliberately ruining his own purchase. Right after he walked outside he dropped trou and had himself a whizz in the middle of the parking lot.

To this day I’ve never run into anything quite as unique.

I wanted to draw @sleepyeule‘s Vague AU, I find it quite unique and how they draw it is absolutely amazing!
The way they choose their colors and shading is phenomenal, I actually tried to color and shade like them on the drawing but failed miserably… ;u;

But I hope you like it, kaibigan and I wanted to show me my appreciation! >w
