Hey can I have more ADHD characters that aren’t your “lol so random and hyperactive and funny” trope.
I want characters with memory issues, who can’t pay attention, who hyperfocus on something, who are scatterbrained and constantly losing their stuff, who have issues with executive function, who have issues with time management, who need to get things written down otherwise they won’t remember it
I want characters who actually take medication too. Like, I’ve NEVER found a book or movie character who has ADHD and takes medication for it.
Can I have more characters with ADHD that isn’t shoehorned into a stupid trope

A/N: Wow! It’s back and improved! I’m re-writing the whole thing because it’s been more than a year since I wrote this fic and my writing has improved haha. Enjoy, guys! It’s different from the previous version, as in wording.
With the sun setting across the horizon
and the wind blowing, feeling crisp and refreshing, you took deep breaths,
calming down. Being outdoors always did that to you, even if most of your life
had been spent in a palace. Had it been any other day, you would have been
happy to contemplate the beautiful, vibrant colors that each unique sunset
brought, but tonight was different. All you wanted to do was go back to your
own palace, lock your door, crawl into your bed, and forget you had responsibilities
and a role to play.
Fingers tapping absently on the
stone balustrade, your gaze descended and fell on the walled gardens that
stretched out behind the palace. There were couples peppered throughout,
holding hands, walking close together as if they were sharing the most
secretive things and no one else should know. Smiling despite yourself, you
could almost taste the bittersweet feeling. It was well-known that you would
never be in their shoes. You would never fall deeply for a person of your choosing.
That wasn’t your destiny.
i do want to alert all of my followers that there is a VERY INACCURATE LIST going around hellblr™
rn that is naming rp and fandom blogs as supporters of ra.pe / non.con threads . the list almost 2k names long , and clearly just thrown together , minimal research done on the op’s part , despite their claim .
if your name is on the list , and it isn’t true due to false facts , i heavily advise you to take it up with the mun of the blog and demand your name be removed . i was lucky not to see any of my blogs , but a few of my good friends are on there , AND I DO NOT SUPPORT THIS HASTILY PUT TOGETHER LIST . the research was not done , and very minimal effort was placed into this . while i do agree with the premise of the movement , i will not associate with the creator of this list , nor even acknowledge it considering there are no sources , and i’ve seen many urls on it i know to be false .
please , do yourself a favor , and don’t believe everything that circulates on this website . i am unsure if this was an act to stir drama or whatnot , but it was definitely petty , uneducated , and completely immature . if you’re going to do an activist movement like this , at least do it right please .
Hey it’s me, the self insert princess mom, and I wanna remind you that it’s totally cool, what you’re doing. Placing yourself in a world that you really enjoy? For fun??? That’s so fuckin awesome!!! I bet your faves are thrilled to have you in their world!!
"catalanophobic" also it's your own damn fault for hosting illegal referenda
wow sorry for doing an “illegal” referendum in 2017 which apparently
justifies the systematical erasure of our culture and language for
Obviously the Count Duke of Olivares was just planning ahead for the referendum when he called to
“work and think with secret council to reduce these kingdoms that form
Spain, to turn them to the style and laws of Castile with not one
Remeber the words of Francisco de Quevedo (1580-1645), one of the most important Spanish writers of all times: “While there’s one remaining Catalan in Catalonia, and stones in the
deserted fields, we shall have enemies and war”.
King Felipe IV in 1712, when ordered the corregidores
(Castilian ruler in their colonies) of Catalonia to “take the
highest care in introducing the Castilian language", the Drecretos de Nueva Planta, done from 1701 to 1719,
when Spain banned
Catalan being spoken
books to be printed in Catalan, made obligatory corporal punishment for children who were heard speaking
Catalan in school, eliminated all Catalan people in the administration
and replace them with Castillian (Spaniard) governors, closed all
universities in Catalonia except for Cervera which was directly
controlled by the Spanish government, etc. Not even only in
institutions, theatre plays, dances, and songs in Catalan were banned
and persecuted too (specific law published in 1799).
And remember the Quintana Plan from 1821 and the Colomade Plan from 1825,
persecuting and punishing even more Catalan at school? And these laws
never stopped, they’ve been coming, each one stronger than the one
before or just to reminds us that we’re still invaded, for centuries.
Like the royal edict in 1837 that forced all teachers to impose
corporal punishment to children who were heard speaking Catalan and also
forced students to denounce their classmates to the teacher if they
heard them speak Catalan. Or the Moyano Law from 1846.
Even in cementeries you banned us! 1838: royal edict that no epitaphs can be written in Catalan.
when the telephone was invented, what was one of the first laws made
about it? Yep, you guessed it! To ban the Catalan language from being
used on phone (law from 1899). And later, in
1961, they also banned Catalan from being written in telegraphs.
And in 1931, Manuel Azaña (president of the Second Republic of
Spain) said “A person I know assures me that it is a law of Spanish
necessity to bomb Barcelona every fifty years. The system of Philip V
was unfair and harsh but solid and convenient. It has worked for two
And when they banned the jocs florals (a poetry competition, which was banned for the sole fact that it was an element of Catalan culture) in 1902, the elimination of l’Estatut d’Autonomia in 1938, the banning (yet again) of Catalan from being used in public in the areas occupied by the Francoists since 1936, the words of Franco that said (in 1939) “We want the unity of Spain to be absolute, with only one language, Spanish, and only one personality, the Spanish one”,
and once again destroyed all street signs, newspapers, magazines, and
other public displays of
Catalan and replaced them by Spanish ones.
In the same year they also started more rigurous control in factory
workers and even in prisons to stop anyone from speaking Catalan or
doing anything related to Catalan culture. Even sardanes, our
traditional dance, was banned! And still in 1939, Spain made a
law prohiiting to consider Catalan even as your second language,
teachers and professors (such as
Bel·larmí Rodríguez i Arias) were arrested for having spoken in Catalan
at class, and the banning of Catalan names. Just names. You can’t be
called by your name anymore if it’s not in Spanish (my grandma, who was
named Llibertat, had to change her name to María de la Encarnación).
And do you remember the “Cara al sol” (the anthem of the Francoist regime)? It includes the line “Catalan, Jew, and renegade, you will pay for have you have done!”.
And the words of Manuel Fraga (Spanish politician) in 1961: “Catalonia was occupied by Philip IV, Philip V, was bombed by the
general Espartero and we occupied it in 1939 and we are willing to
occupy it as many times as it is necessary and for that I am willing to
pick up my rifle again”.
and after the dictatorship supposedly ended in 1975, Catalan is legal
to be spoken again but still looked down upon, and the government uses
every opportunity they can to reduce the moments where we can use it.
From 1976 to 2008 more than 149 Royal Decrees and other normatives have been published making it mandatory to label all products in Spanish, even
those only sold in Catalan/Basque/Galician-speaking areas. And 1986:
Sentence 83/1986 of the Constitutional Tribunal against the Law of
Linguistic Normalisation in Catalonia, which wanted to use Catalan in
official acts of the Catalan government, officially use the Catalan
names of places in Catalonia instead of their Spanish translations
(except in Val d’Aran, where the Occitan name would be used).
And the massive jailing and repression against Catalan activists in 1992 during the Olympic Games Barcelona.
2012 the Supreme Tribunal of Spain declared that Catalan must
not be the main language of education in Catalonia, and that it must have the “same” importance as
Also in 2012, the Spanish minister of education said in congress “our interest is to turn Catalan kids into Spanish kids.”
These are just some things, not even half of it. I will link you to a few posts, so you can learn some history. Here is a list of laws prohibiting the Catalan language from the 16th to the 19th century, and here’s 20th and 21st centuries. And here is some of the signs that used to hanup in classrooms.
So yeah, as you said, catalanophobia is our fault for organising a referendum. All this centuries of systematical oppression and erasure were just planning ahead. And yet did not succeed, we voted.
Our city’s enemies are looming at our gates, and it is time to put asidelocal rivalries By royal decree, I, Escalus, Royal Prince and sole sovereign of the city of Verona do herefore order themarriage of Rosaline Capulet and Benvolio Montague to cement your families as allies, not rivals. If Montague and Capulet cannot coexist as two, they must become one. Our city’s survival depends upon it.
Antique kimono. Woman’s wedding uchikake. Meiji period
(1868-1911), Japan. A fine silk uchikake featuring yuzen-dyed cranes in flight
over a raging sea. Embroidery highlights. Five mon (family crests). The crane
is one of the three major mystical animals, together with the dragon and the
tortoise. Its chief symbolic meaning is long life. With their lifespan of some
thirty years, cranes were thought to live not just decades but thousands of
years, becoming virtually synonymous with immortality. At Japanese weddings, it
is a symbol of loyalty. Also associated with the qualities of honor and wisdom,
cranes were believed to be intermediaries between heaven and earth, a messenger
of the gods to humans, thus symbolizing the spiritual ability to enter a higher
state of consciousness. Furthermore, the crane also represents a lasting
soaring spirit, health, and happiness. Their white bodies stand for purity and
their red heads denote vitality. The artist who created the crane over seas
scene on this kimono would have been a top artist at the time, as few extant
kimonos from that period can compete with its artistry and realism. When the
Edo period ended in 1868, once pre-eminent samurai warrior class was dissolved
by royal decree, leading to a career problem for the great artists who once
painted for this military aristocracy. Perhaps it was one of these great
artists that was commissioned to ‘paint’ this extraordinary wedding robe.
“Saudi Arabia is easing restrictions on women driving, finally allowing almost half its population to get behind the wheel.
A royal decree has been issued that will allow women in the country to drive, the Saudi Foreign ministry said Tuesday on its official Twitter account. A committee has been formed to implement the ruling and it will present recommendations within 30 days. Then the government will have until June 24, 2018, to implement the new decree.“This is a historic big day in our kingdom,” Prince Khaled bin Salman, Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the US, said Tuesday in a briefing with reporters.”
A/N: It’s gonna be different from the previous version. I’m winging it as I change what I have previously written. Enjoy, guys!
The music ceased, the notes
drifting away and leaving silence between you and the prince. Doing him the
favor, you pulled away and turned around, not daring to look back and making
your way towards your parents. They wore beaming smiles, smacking you square in
the chest with guilt at the fact that all you held for your betrothed was
“How did it go?” questioned your
mother, offering you a glass of champagne. Staring at the glass first before
looking at her with a raised brow, you laughed in surprise at her scoff.
“You’re getting married, I think you can drink a single glass of champagne.”
“Well, you didn’t raise a fool,”
you murmured, pricking the glass from her hand and taking a few consecutive
sips. Chugging the liquid would have been preferable, you were at a public
event and had noticed more than a few flashes going off as you danced with
Prince James. The press had a penchant for being gossip mongers and it was
highly likely rumors were already flying through social media regarding you and
Just know, I recommend all of these authors masterlists, but here’s a few to start you off. They’re all multi-part fics. Also, I’ve probably forgotten so many amazing fics. I’ve read so many it’s hard to remember them all, but I’ll try to add them as I remember.
(I like waaaay to many one-shots to write down but start by checking these guys masterlists.)
as all my jewish followers and friends know, we have a holiday coming up! the featival of purim is this sunday. purim celebrates hidden miracles and hidden beauty and hidden saviours. there’s a lot of hiding. that’s why we dress up!
i’m aware that the vast majority of gentiles and a lot of jews don’t fully know the story of purim, which is recorded in the scroll of esther, or megillat esther. the megillah’s my favourite story, and has so many amazing midrashim (bit like rabbinical fanfiction) that i study year round. this story, which is the story of how a young jewish woman saved our people from a genocide, has a lot of parallels with our current political situation in the u.s., so i thought now would be a great time to tell the story!
