Children-of-Desire

anonymous asked:

Do you think maybe doing a LI companions learning that the Inquisitor loves children and wants like eight or some other ridiculous number one day?

Cassandra: Huffs and gives the Inquisitor a stern glance. “I hope you’re not expecting me to bear them, then.” She doesn’t mind the idea of having children, but Maker…that would hurt. She would definitely consider adopting, however, but perhaps not that many…

Blackwall: Is initially surprised, and obviously quite intimidated. But after the initial shock wears off, he is rather touched by the idea. He has the image of his Inquisitor and him together in a house by a lake or small village with many children running around them. He would definitely be open to the idea, and would be happy to have as many children as his Inquisitor desires, once everything is done.

Sera: Is also a bit shocked, but then grins and gets rather excited by the idea. “We’ll make our own little crew, yeah? Train ‘em up right and good, and send ‘em sneakin’ into some noble’s place to filch their privates, ha!” She would like the idea of having heaps of children around, having one big family so that nobody would ever be lonely.

Iron Bull: Chuckles at the thought, but is strangely charmed by it. “You really want that many, kadan? I’m on board if you are.” To him, it is natural, after all. A Tamassran would take care of multiple children, he remembered the joys of growing up with many other children, so of course he’d want that, too. 

Dorian: Laughs immediately. “Oh, amatus, one would think that after this Inquisition business, you’d want to live a quiet, peaceful life! Always one to defy expectations, aren’t you?” He would be a bit unsure of having so many children, as he has his own insecurities about his ability to be a good parent, but when he sees his amatus playing with a child, those doubts vanish and he is convinced that it is a wonderful idea. 

Josephine: Has to fan herself with her hand for a moment. “Oh…oh my, that’s quite a lot, isn’t it? Are you sure you want that many? It will be a lot of work…” She does some research immediately, and tries to question various parents she sees in Skyhold about the stresses of a large family. She would take some time to come around to the idea, as it is quite intimidating, but she would eventually fall in love with the thought of having so many children with her Inquisitor. 

Cullen: His eyes widen. “You want how many?” He sighs, and pinches the bridge of his nose. “Maker…” The thought naturally intimidates him, as he always thought that his family had been large enough, let alone having eight children. Once he had a little bit more experience with children, and after the Inquisition business was settling down, he would be much more open to the idea, and would find himself imagining it quite often. He’s been a commander, and he knows that he could handle it. 

Solas: No. No. In no world would he want that many children. Even if there wasn’t the tiny, teensy issue of him wanting to take down all of Thedas, he would still never be comfortable with being responsible for so many children. One or two is the most he could extend himself to, but not so many. But he would let his vhenan know this gently, and tries to ignore the niggling thought in the back of his mind telling him that there will never be any children, let alone eight.

Jackie Ormes (August 1, 1911 – December 26, 1985) is known as the first African American female cartoonist. Her strips, featuring the lovable characters Torchy Brown, Candy, Patty-Jo, and Ginger, appeared in the Chicago Defender and Pittsburgh Courier in the 1930s - 1950s. 

Jackie Ormes said, “No more…Sambos…Just KIDS!” and she transformed her attractive, spunky Patty-Jo cartoon character into the first upscale American black doll. At long last, here was an African American doll with all the play features children desired: playable hair, and the finest and most extensive wardrobe on the market, with all manner of dresses, formals, shoes, hats, nightgowns, robes, skating and cowgirl costumes, and spring and winter coat sets, to name a few.

Merchandise  "In Nightmare Room" (Children of Desire LP, Katorga Works 2012)

This reminds me of at least three best-selling acts of the eighties, playing all at once. Whatever’s happening, it’s giving me the shivers. (‘Become Who You Are’ is too long.) Murky post punk from Florida; this album came out last week and you can trade money or bandwidth for it here.

Time has bested me again
I keep trying but I can’t win
Tell me father, where you’ve been?
I’m alone, but used to it

But when I was a boy
I would have nightmares in the day
While the adults were busy sleeping
and pretend to be awake

So I took a lover, oh yeah
just to kill some time
she always loves to leave me hanging out to dry
if you’re feeling lonesome baby I’ll be your best friend
but don’t expect to call me
if you need a hand

Oh I fell in love again
the kind that’s like quicksand
I guess I didn’t understand
I just like to lose my head

Oh I guess I made the same mistake
by opening my heart
I’m really just an animal
made with human parts

We’re still young baby, but we’re getting old
I can’t sleep in this bed with you anymore
I know your body and I miss it like your voice

But I’m leaving girl
so you’ve got
no choice

Goodbye

paedophilia doesn’t just mean watching child porn or attempting to sexually assault a child - it means being sexually attracted to children. the moment you desire seeing your partner take on the role, dress, essence, language and actions of a child in order for you to orgasm is the moment you are a paedophile. daddy doms, I’m lookin at you.

I’m your daughter who loves you. And I know this must be really hard for you, but I just need my daddy to hold me, and tell me it’s gonna be okay.

“But what if you meet someone who wants children?”

This sentence is so problematic, but so, so often asked to a young woman who says she doesn’t want children. The insinuation behind this statement is that some hypothetical man’s feelings are more valid and important than a woman’s current, very real feelings. Well, so what if they did meet someone who wanted children? Why are his desires to be a father more important than a woman’s not to? Hyperthetical mens’ feelings are more important than a woman’s real ones. If the burden of parenthood was more fairly balanced in today’s society, it might make sense.

But it’s not. Women have to go through pregnancy (including numerous possible heath, emotional and financial issues) before the child is even born, so why is it still ultimately what is more important to the male?

A woman is also told repeatedly that she will change her mind. She can’t possibly know for sure that she won’t one day wake up and want to be a mother. Because, after all, isn’t that what we’re all here for? Yes we may go through the motions of a career and our young feminist years, but ultimately we all really want to get married and have babies! Anyone who tells you otherwise will change her mind. That or she’ll meet the right man who will want babies, and thus, her purpose on the earth will be served.

To everyone on the a-spectrum that doesn’t desire children: You’re not a bad person. You’re not ‘biologically broken’ or ‘ruining your family line.’ You’re not ‘denying your parents grandchildren.’ You’re not ‘selfish’ or ‘greedy’ for not wanting kids. 

It’s okay to not be interested in raising children. It’s okay to be repulsed by every aspect of child-rearing, from sex to childbirth to caring for that child. It’s okay. You’re not bad or broken. 

And remember, it’s your body, not theirs. It’s your life, not theirs. They cannot choose what you want or how you spend your future.

MERCHANDISE - Time

I was in love and I had to leave it. It was someone who I loved but didn’t trust any more. I thought to myself, if only we were older… like the Beach Boys, wouldn’t it be nice? This person that I thought was the love of my life ended up being the love of my youth. And I don’t think there’s anything wrong with letting that go. If only I could have known you at a different time, maybe this wouldn’t have happened.  - Carson Cox
