author’s note: bet y’all weren’t expecting this on a monday, huh? i hope this is okay, anon! I’m sorry it’s pretty much all dialogue.

Your name: submit What is this?

There were not many secrets between you and Shawn. He knew about the time you threw up in front of your entire second-grade class during a field trip, you found out about all the drama with his friends from school, and you had shared - in length - the most awkward highlights of your terrible first kiss behind the bleachers in middle school.

And somehow, even after all the confessions and conversations a two-year relationship entailed, you were still discovering new sides to the floppy-haired boy that first shyly approached you at a mutual friend’s party two years ago.

cat-sucky  asked:

hi friend I was wondering if I could ask your opinion on smth with ota//yuri if you're comfortable with that! I was talking to my gf about it and I'm v uncomfortable with it bc he's a fucking child ffs but she was saying how people on her twitter that are around 14-16 ship it and find comfort in it and I was wondering what you thought about that? It's smth I've been thinking about and I rlly like/agree on ur opinions on the matter (I'm sorry is this is weird or makes u uncomfortable at all!)

So, I’m going to talk from my experiences from being a minor (14-15) in a fandom (Homestuck) that REALLY normalized this+a shit ton of other gross ships to me+from being someone who regularly taught people in this age group.
This is very long because I really wanted to sit down and explain why, as a whole, adult minor shipping even in fiction is bad. I’ll cover the obvious, nsfw content, how to approach minors who ship it, and why the ADULT shippers are REALLY awful.

Issue 1: The obvious 

Minors being exposed to+normalized with adult/minor shipping, and phrases (Which are used to justify it) like “It’s only a few years.” “Age is only a number.” “Yurio is mature.” “It’s ok because they’ll wait for yurio to be legal before doing x and y .” 

Those are real world tactics used by pedophiles and i’m not being a over the top anti or some shit. Children being exposed to content like this, being told phrases like this, and being told this is normal are used by pedophiles constantly in the real world. 

Issue 2: NSFW Content

There is always going to be NSFW content and god knows I saw that stuff before i hit 18. But then you have the issue of one of the people in the ship is a 15 year old drawn like that. You have minors again being exposed  to someone THEIR (Give or take a year) age in sexual situations. There’s also the problem of some artists draw Yurio even younger looking than in canon. I don’t think I need to explain why this terrible to minors viewing it. Top this off with it’s adults creating and sharing this where minors can see, and this can lead to horrifying situations. It’s literally sharing child pornography with children. 

Issue 3: How do you approach minor shippers vs adult shipper?  

What you shouldn’t do is blame the minors. You SHOULD explain to them why it’s bad, and actively try to protect them from the gross adults who are interacting with them. Calling them disgusting and attacking them will only push them to people who “understand them”. You HAVE To be patient with them and just pray it gets through. 

On this blog I really go ham at adult ot@yuri shippers because THOSE are the ones really causing harm. They’re the ones making the popular content, they’re the ones writing this stuff, and who are being looked up to by minor followers. They’re the ones who are adults and viewing/creating/sharing nsfw content of a 15 year old, and who will coddle the minors who feel attacked by antis.

Attack, bash, and callout the adults.
Talk to, understand, and open your arms to the kids.

For the fic title meme: ice, smoke, and alcohol

so, I didn’t take this as a title so much as a prompt…

One hand to his side to staunch the bleeding, Kash pushed the girl inside ahead of him, all the way past his office and up the stairs to his shitty apartment. It wasn’t much of a “home” but he’d lived there for nearly three years now and the extra boundary never hurt. Even if he’d definitely felt all those assholes die.

“Um…” said the girl as soon as he’d locked the door, staring around his dust-filled, closet-sized living room like she didn’t know what to do with her entire body. She should’ve been striking, with dark skin, henna-red hair, and a bright, daisy-patterned sundress, but she stood like a deer on the verge of a highway.

Adult Supervision

Summary: One-shot. Jaken’s scheme to find the Inu no Taisho’s tomb takes an unexpected turn when the Unmother brings Izayoi back from the dead. Alive in the demon’s body, Izayoi wants to make amends with Inuyasha by doing what she couldn’t before: being there.

Words: 7k

Also on ff.net

A/N: Inuparents Day fic. The story isn’t about their relationship, but it’s often mentioned! 

Dedicated to @wreathoflaurels, who made me love Izayoi. To me, she’s really your character!

“I have come back, Inuyasha… Back from the world of the dead.”

Izayoi was aware of something channeling her, tugging at her spirit—disturbing her peace.

“Stop hurting her!” A man screamed from the outside.

“Your son,” the thing whispered. “The man is your son.”


“Are you okay?” A girl’s voice sounded close by.

“Who’s there? Who are you?” Izayoi asked the darkness.

“I am the Unmother.”

“Kagome, you and her, get out of here!” Inuyasha barked.

“I think not,” Sesshomaru’s voice scorned.

“It’s a trap,” Izayoi realized. She started fighting the demon’s grasp, feeling the strength of the souls which formed it—mothers mourning children who would never come home.

Their intentions weren’t good.

“This place… Where is it?” Inuyasha asked.

“Nowhere!” Izayoi wanted to yell. “It’s an illusion!”

“At the bottom of the spirit world,” the Unmother answered. “I must be crossing over very soon.”

Izayoi would have groaned if she could. Stuck inside the Unmother’s body, she was able to read her like a book.

Inuyasha would die.

Shitty things that need to stop within the ARMY fandom
  • Rap mon’s “fake deep posts” (x)

Nothing much here other than yall need to grow the fuck up and learn that whenever someone shares their worries and troubles and in general expresses themselves you don’t turn it into a fucking meme. I don’t care if you don’t understand what he posts, you still respect it. You are mocking him for how he feels and that is NOT cool

  • Jungkook is a “fuckboy”

I don’t care how you define the word, most definitions are still not something you should be calling the kid. And idk if you knew this, but the connotation for the word is not good, so then explain why you’re so willing to call Kookie it? (you know the shy, adorable, geeky, newly turned eighteen year old who yall LOVE to assume is a sex god in bed?)

  • Jimin “has no jams”

The joke is over. And if anyone still keeps bringing it up over every little thing Jimin does, you need help. Jimin sings on a radio show? “you got no jams”. Jimin dances in a bomb? “you got no jams”. Jimin plays around with the members? “you got no jams”. Jimin does ageyo even though he’s expressed he’s not good at it? “you got no jams”. Like fuck, stop discrediting him for everything he does.

  • V is an alien/4D (x)

I shouldn’t even be talking about this one because it’s been said by TAEHYUNG HIMSELF that he does not like being called an alien or 4D. Even the members have said at one point or another that it’s all a concept. To brush Tae off as just this weird dude “who comes from another planet” and is some “oddball whose head is in the clouds” is incredibly rude. Tae is a guy that the members all go to to unload their stress and troubles which means he gives good ass advice and HELPS them, Tae is a guy that Namjoon has acknowledged as perceptive and smart, Tae is a guy who has a lot more to him than his occasional moments where he simply lets loose and acts his age

  • Hoseok’s not a rapper (x)

This shouldn’t be on the list either because of how dumb it is. It’s high time for everyone to start truly acknowledging that Hobi is a rapper and a damn good one at that, not JUST an extremely talented dancer. To say that he is only good at dance is so insensitive to all the hardwork he’s put into rapping. And it’s quite obvious people do not bother to acknowledge this when literally no one is harping about HIS mixtape that he’s been working on for quite some time now

  • Pressuring Yoongi about his mixtape

I get yall are excited for Yoongi’s mixtape, I am too. But fuck, to CONSTANTLY be saying “where is it” “why you lyin” “impatiently waiting for Yoongi’s mixtape LOLZ” “where’s the fire” “WHERE. IS. IT” “stop playing us” LIKE GOD FUCKING DAMN. Give him some fucking breathing room. Yoongi already carries a lot of the brunt of helping produce and write for their albums, not to mention ALL the concerts they’ve had this year, and oh I don’t know the very well-known fact that Yoongi SLEEP DEPRIVES himself in order to get things done, and perfect things, and all that other shit. And then yall wanna come stampeding in demanding where his mixtape is? Why are you guys so intent on adding extra stress on top of him? You think he isn’t working incredibly hard on it? How about instead of pressuring him, you go— hey take your time do what you need to do we’ll wait.

  • Fake appreciating Jin

As horrible as it sounds, this is very much relevant and true AF. I just find it so humorous how people are SO quick to reblog stuff about appreciating Jin and all that other shit, but when Jin goes and does things people are automatically ignoring it or asking where the other members are. Let’s not forget that on Eat Jin people are constantly asking him, JIN, where are the other members, ON HIS FUCKING SHOW. If that doesn’t scream that people don’t really care for Jin or at the very least don’t have the decency to appreciate him doing shit on his own I don’t know what does.

  • Jungkook hates Jimin/Jimin deserves better (x) (x) (x)

This one is pretty clean cut. Stop using the actions of a fifteen year old as your justification. Actually stop JUDGING the actions of a FIFTEEN year old (seriously if you have to dig back two years ago for dirt you’re obviously just tripping) Point blank, Kookie has shown time over again how much he adores Jimin and how he sees Jimin, as well as ALL of Bangtan, as a brother. Yall are wrongly influencing newer fans and I hope you’re proud that you’ve managed to make people genuinely hate Kookie for stupid shit he did when he was fifteen. Just fuck. Are you guys really desperate for there to be a riff among the members or for the members to not like each other? With the way you guys nitpick everything it’s like you’re searching for something to discredit the bond between BTS.

  • Taking ships too far

Stop hating on members or bashing a member’s relationship with another just because it “goes against” your personal ship.  Is Jimin giving attention to Jungkook and you start being bitter by saying “he deserves better and should be with Yoongi”? Get a reality check. Is Taehyung standing next to Hobi when he “should be standing next to his boyfriend Jungkook”? Get a FUCKING reality check.

  • Finally, stop sexualizing every possible thing Bangtan does under the sun

Can I please go through my dash ONCE without seeing Jungkook posing in a selfie and then have tags saying “oh he knows he’s hot that rude shit ugh fuck me”. Or can I PLEASE watch a bangtan bomb without someone saying “I see your nipples omfg so sexy take off your shirt, that bulge though omg he’s probably so big fuck me”. Or better yet, forget me. Can BANGTAN SONYEONDAN post something on twitter without the crazy fans saying something irrelevant and chanting kiss me, fuck me, oppa I want you, blah blah ICK.

The merch does not lie

@monsterscavenger posted this great cover art of a child’s primer, and it inspired me to pull up a couple visual comparisons:

Hello, dark knight, lost prince of Alderaan. You Ben Solo is showing.

The artists have rendered our boy in full Disney Prince mode. He fits right in with this lineup:

And visually, he does not fit here:

After all the months of fandom sturm and drang, the angst, the dark nights of the soul full of doubt about where the story is going to go (aided and abetted by the rumor mill, our own headcanons, and coy communications from Mr. Hidalgo); at the end of the day: Trust the merch. The merch does not lie.

Over the coming months, as we begin to get more of these indications about the way the wind is blowing in the new trilogy, I realize I am going to enjoy this phase of the Long Wait. This week already graced us with “Reylo in a Box,”* and now this delightful book cover. What will they offer us next? It’ll be fun to see!

* (coming soon to a Target near you)

Edited to add: Clearly the antis who were happily reblogging this post would benefit from reading the excellent commentary by @daughter-of-water, who provided the details about the copy on the packaging that explain why this bit of merch supports Reylo:

“Why is no one talking about the blurb on the back of the box?

In the snowy forests of the First Order stronghold and super weapon, Starkiller Base, Kylo Ren and Rey engage in a lightsaber duel in which Kylo promises to help train Rey in the ways of the Force. Rey refuses and finds a way to connect to the Force using it to continue the fight and put Kylo Ren on the defensive. The fight ends with the planet crumbling beneath their feet due to the Resistance’s successful attack on the Base, leaving both to their respective quests for answers.

Note the total absence of negative adjectives usually applied towards Kylo Ren in the advertising. His training offer is described as “a promise to help” as opposed to an attempt to seduce her to the Dark Side. Then there is this phrase “leaving both to their respective quests for answers” in the last line. If you didn’t know better you’d think you were reading about two good guys who happen to be on opposing sides of a war trying to figure it all out rather than a dastardly patricidal villain versing a hero. I see what you are doing there, Star wars marketing team. I see the shift that’s being made.”

anonymous asked:

I 100% unfollowed fast/brit/waiting/french over their gross ass au but I've seen people tell them how it's extra gross bc mercy is Jewish-coded. I'm not super understanding how she is Jewish-coded and I'd like to know so I can be more conscientious of it

Okay so this is very similar to an ask I received on my main, so I’ll give a more in-depth explanation there at some point, but the long and short of it is:

  • Ziegler is an Ashkenazic surname
  • Her motivation to save lives, no matter the cost, is in keeping with Pikuach Nefesh–basically, the idea that preservation of human life is more important nearly all other considerations
  • Operating under this assumption, you can see why she would have believed it ethical to save Genji, despite the affect upon the quality of his life
  • This is backed up by the assertion (by Michael Chu) that she is an ethical person–nevermind what you think of her decisions, she has made them for what she believes are ethical reasons
  • Following such a code also explains why she finds being a soldier to be wrong, but carries her own weapon.  Because she is carrying it reluctantly, and for self defense only, this is not in anyway premeditated (unlike enlisting or ordering someone on a mission) and is, therefore, in the eyes of her religion, not murder (NOTE: not all Jewish people feel this way, but it is in line with what I was taught)
  • Her sense of guilt/responsibility over/for the fallout between Jack and Gabe feels very Jewish to me, as do her interactions with Reinhardt (who also has a Jewish name, and is Jewish coded for many of the same reasons as she is)
  • I have seen people argue that angel imagery is Christian, but I’ll add here that Judaism had the concept of the angel first, so it should in no way be read as proof of Christianity.

There is more, but unfortunately this is all I can remember off of the top of my head right now.  If any other Jewish people want to add to this, let me know!

shrimpsontrash replied to your post“Pedophilia Ships”

^^Agreed with the above reply although just a suggestion maaaaybe you should’ve clarified about this stuff in the post so as not to cause confusion (this is gonna come of as snarky but I mean that in the nicest most genuine way possible hope it doesn’t come off as me being an asshole)

And I wasn’t attacking you personally just the whole c137cest ship in general I unapologetically can’t stand that

@shrimpsontrash I made this post literally three years ago when I was first getting into discourse I didn’t think I would need to explain every little thing to people for them to understand. And the version most people see is the one where it’s reblogged so editing it now won’t stop them from seeing the original. There is literally nothing I can do about it except sit here and wait to get attacked for it again and again. 

And no you don’t come off as an asshole I’m just… really tired and the original comment you reblogged from had a trigger of mine in it (eye gore) so I’m very not okay right now. 

And I understand why you don’t like it, I honestly don’t really like it either. I was just asking people to use the right terms for it.

fics i read last week 

More or Less by Saori (10K)

“There’s… I’m not in love with you,” he admits, and sees Harry open his mouth to say something but Louis cuts him off. “No, wait, listen to me, okay, I’m not breaking up with you, I don’t want to, I just… I don’t know what I want, not really, didn’t really think about it. It’s… it’s not you; it’s not that I don’t love you, I love you very much. But… I’m not in love with you, I think,” he sighs, frustrated with himself that he can’t say it the way he explained to Lottie.

or Louis and Harry have been dating for years when Louis realizes he’s aromantic, and have bit hard time with it.

If Tomorrow Never Comes (We Had Last Night) by FallingLikeThis (Zayniam), Rearviewdreamer (14K)

Louis accepts the call without bothering to look at the caller ID. Only Zayn would be a big enough asshole to call him at two in the morning. This fucking better be important.

“This fucking better be important,” Louis greets.

On the other end of the line comes a soft giggle. “Li, you don’t usually curse. I don’t know what’s gotten into you, but I like it.”

Yeah, that’s not Zayn. Louis sighs, his anger melting into resignation when he realizes that it’s some poor bastard probably drunk dialing his ex or something. “Sorry, mate. Think you’ve got the wrong number.”

fluffy-rulos  asked:

OH, dude, are you still taking prompts? I didn't know! (plus i'm kinda shy at this stuff and didn't want to overwhelm you in case you had too many requests already). Maybe you could do something with Max and Johnny and that ice-skating prompt, that was part of the post "Things NOT to imagine your OTP doing" you reblogged not too long ago?

(ah yes the prompt)

Max had a problem and this time didn’t involve spirits. He stared at his sister Zoey, who was beaming down at him. “C’mon Mr. Hardcore Parkour.” She moved without effort around him. “You can’t learn unless you try.”

He grunted, getting up on his feet once again, the same way Zoey showed him the first dozen times he fell. He was pretty sure he broke his butt, but the cold numbed whatever pain his rear would’ve been feeling half an hour ago.Which was good, because there were Doctopi lurking nearby and he didn’t want to have to explain that to any passing spectrals.  “I am trying.” He took a deep breath. The cold air felt sharp on his tongue. “Can we stop? I’m pretty sure Dad wanted us home before sunset.”

She shrugged. “Okay bro, but at this rate you’ll never be ready for your chilly date.” She teased before quickly skating to the edge of the pond before he could yell at her how much of a date it was not. By the time he shuffled his way to land, Zoey had pulled off her skating boots and changed out with grounded, none bladed ones. “About time slowbro.”

He huffed and made her help him to the nearest bench before slipping his own feet blades off in exchange for the warm, none balance threatening boots. He winced standing. “I think we’re gonna be late for dinner.”

Zoey sighed, taking her brother’s arm across her shoulders and pulled on him. “Not with that attitude.”

anonymous asked:

I'm curious about the anime you've been reblogging. Can you explain what the premise is? Thank you :D

Don’t laugh, anon. This is srs bsnss. *rolls up sleeves*

Ok, so the name of this particular feelsfest is Mahou Tsukai no Yome or, for the Japanese impaired like me, The Ancient Magus’ Bride. The title itself appears self-explanatory, but things ofc are not quite as simple or straightforward. The manga (there’s no anime version available just yet, only a promo for a 3-part OVA titled “The Man Who Waits for Stars” has been released which looks awesomeeeee btw) is a unique, slow-burn spin on a  tale as old as time ♪, draws on the found family trope, and takes place in modern day England + to a lesser extent in Tír na nÓg (land of faerie) and Iceland.

It has two main characters:

Elias Ainsworth aka the Incomplete One aka Bonehead Monster BF(F) Wannabe. He’s a centuries old recluse of unclear origins and species who gets the “mechanism” of human emotions but cannot really feel them himself, so he mostly interacts w/ people like your parents do w/ the latest smart phone: following a sketchy manual and hoping for the best. That’s one thing he attempts to change when he decides to take an apprentice. As a day job he makes and sells medicine in the small English village where he lives. He also helps solve problems of a supernatural nature. He’s an odd, gentle giant most of the time, sometimes very lost & childlike, but he can be quite dangerous, calculating, and deceptive when he deems the situation calls for it.

Chise Hatori aka Robin aka our titular character is a 16 year old girl who lost her family, then was also neglected/abandoned by her relatives and foster parents alike. Aimless, severely depressed and feeling completely unwanted, she offers herself up for a shady human trafficker. That’s how she ends up at an auction where Elias makes an unexpected entrance and, grossly outbidding everyone else, buys her. Her unique abilities that completely isolated her among humans are of great interest to both friend and foe in the supernatural community, but they also pose a serious health issue, so she has a lot to endure & overcome. Thankfully, she is a kind soul and a trooper, not some irritating, stereotypical teenager.

So the basic premise is your typical “outcast boy buys outcast girl at a de facto slave auction” situation, but the story quickly grows beyond this w/o glossing over the problematic details or ignoring the “baggage” of such a dynamic. Despite the sketchy start both Chise and Elias are continuously nudged towards cultivating a more balanced, healthy relationship. Meanwhile adventures are had, other interesting characters are introduced, fluffy domesticity explodes into our face, and real feelings start to develop amidst all the nuzzle-nuzzle, near-death and near-life experiences.

There are dragons, too, and cats, so you can tell this is Grade A stuff I’m selling here. And if you are interested, you can read the fan translation of every available chapter here (I recommend the Maigo version, then - if you really love it and can afford it - buying the official stuff to support the author).

Summary: Adrien and Marinette have more in common than they think. 

Day #4 of Adrinette April, and the topic for the day is stuck in an elevator/cupboard! (You can check out the full calendar on @krazy-ky-sta-hatter‘s post here!)

Tikki had told her that the reason she was a ladybug-themed heroine with the power of creation was that ladybugs were supposed to be lucky, like how Chat Noir, the black cat-themed hero with the power of destruction, was supposed to be unlucky.

Well, the girl behind Ladybug’s mask knew for a fact that there was no way the boy behind Chat Noir’s mask was unluckier than her in that moment.

> And Adrien will be there to save you.

The situation didn’t get any better once Adrien had heard the poorly contained scream that Marinette gave.

“Don’t worry, Marinette.” the blond model said, placing a hand on her shoulder in an act of comfort. “We’ll get out of here safely, I promise.”

Considering Marinette didn’t die of a heart attack, Adrien was right.

Okay so I went to Chanyeol’s moms restaurant today, Viva Polo. A restaurant where I’ve been a regular for pretty much a year now. Now, my korean is not perfect, but a year ago I could barely speak any korean, so of course it’s improved, but still to this day I haven’t really had a real long conversation with Chanyeol’s mother, only the occational “did you enjoy the food?” and other small unimportant talk. But today I went to Viva Polo with my friend who speaks Korean. I had went to the concert venue after EXO’s concert on Sunday to take some pictures and had seen Youngmi exit the venue and greet the fans. So today when I come, my friend starts talking to her and notices that she’s really really kind. Now my friend is not an EXO fan, and doesn’t really even know the faces of the members. But after Youngmi had found us a place to sit, I tell her that it was Chanyeol’s mom that she had just talked to. When Youngmi returns to us, I ask her if the concert was fun, and tell her that I saw her on Sunday. And she says really happily that it was so much fun, and asks me if I went as well, and I tell her that I went on Friday, but I had wanted to see EXO exit on Sunday and had seen her then. She then laughs at me for just going to see them exit and then tells me to wait a moment. Then she returns with her phone and finds a picture that she took with Kyungsoo after the concert. So I tell her like “ahhhh sooo cute!”, and she’s like “nonono!! he doesn’t like being called cute”, so I’m like “ahh yea right!” and my friend says “so handsome” to correct, and we just laugh so much. So she goes on her phone again and finds a selfie she took with Suho, and we tell her that the pictures are so cute. So she finds another picture, this time of her and Chanyeol, and the picture was toooooo cute!!! So I’m like “ahhhhh so soooo cute”, and she’s wearing a flower crown in the picture so I point it out, and she explains “Chanyeol likes wearing the hat, but he received the flower crown from a fan at the concert and gave it to me when he put on his hat”. And I swear the picture is too cute!!!!! She looks at it so proudly as well. I tell her I’m going to the concert the coming Friday as well, so she’s like “wow you see them a lot”, so I say “I really really like Chanyeol a lot”, and she touches her heart and says “I also like Chanyeol a lot” and has such a cute sigh and break in her speech, and then says “my Chanyeol”. SO CUTE!!! A bit later my friend says that next week is my birthday so we will eat at this restaurant. And I tell her that last year as well I celebrated my birthday there, and she suddenly remembers and says “ahhh! you sang the birthday song right!!” and I can confirm that she remembered correctly!! So she tells me to make sure to make a reservation so that there is an available table there when we arrive! Then our two other friends food arrive, even though, which I forgot to mention, those friends came a bit later than us, so she comes to our table and laughs because their food had arrived first, but tell us to wait and still enjoy the food. Youngmi is always so sweet to me when I’m there though, she will always try to talk to me as much as possible even though she knows my korean is not perfect, and she always looks over at me and smiles at me while I’m eating. We finish eating and go over to pay for the food, and since we’re so many people we decide to just spilt it there so that one person doesn’t have to pay a huge amount. And Youngmi expresses like “ahh you’re making this stressful for me” really cutely and just laughs. And she asks me when my birthday is, so I say “Friday next week”, and she says “aren’t you going to the EXO concert that day?” and I explain like “ahh no concert is this week, my birthday is next week” and she’s like “ahh that’s right”, so I tell her the date of my birthday, and she asks for my phone number, and I tell her, and then my name, so I say “it’s Irene”, and she literally gasps and says “ahhh the name is so beautiful, your face is also so beautiful” and I thank her so much and I don’t know how I manage to be so calm because on the inside I’m screaming because CHANYEOL’S MOM THINKS I’M BEAUTIFUL!!!!! So she confirms my reservation and waves at us and smiles so much and says goodbye!!!! I went to Viva Polo so many times, and I know that Youngmi always really wanted to communicate better with me. I always go with friends, friends who even speak better korean than me, but she always turns to me whenever she speaks. She seemed really happy that we finally had a good conversation today!! And I’m learning more and more korean every day now so hopefully I’ll be able to talk even more to her from now on!!

anonymous asked:

for the pairing and a line thing you reblogged that i assume your doing tomco “Just leave me ALONE.”

#25 Hopefully this one’s better then the last one. Seriously please ignore my last one. Also I’m accepting either Tomco, Tomstar or StarTomMarco

“Just leave me ALONE.” Marco turned towards Tom clenching his fists tightly. Tom took a step back completely shocked by his boyfriends sudden outburst. They’d just been hanging out with Star when they Ludo and his goons attacked. Tom had done a great job of keeping the goons away from Marco. So why was he so upset?

anonymous asked:

I apologize way too much after splitting, and I tell my friends my feelings and now people are saying that is abusive. I'm autistic and I don't know how to not hurt someone now. If I split, should I apologize and risk being abusive, or not say anything and risk being abusive? How can I ask if I'm being abusive without risking being abusive from pressuring them to reassure me that I'm not abusive? I rely on honesty and communication but I've hurt people that way and I want to stop hurting people

Apologising is not inherently abusive. Some abusers deliberately apologise too much, or make dramatic gestures of regret like buying their victims expensive gifts, in order to manipulate their victims into accepting the apology, even though these people don’t intend to stop abusing their victims. That is how apologising can be abusive. If your intention is not to force the people you’re talking to to accept your apology, you’re not being abusive, although your behaviour might be hurting them anyway.

Honestly, you are on the right track with honesty and communication! You need to talk to your friends about their boundaries and what sort of apologies would work for them. Every person’s individual life experiences affects how they respond to apologies.

For example, if Person A apologised repeatedly to manipulate Person B, then hearing Person C apologise repeatedly might make Person B feel that Person C is doing it to manipulate them as well. Even though Person C apologises a lot because they feel very guilty and want to make sure others know how sorry they are, to Person B, this type of apology is upsetting rather than reassuring.

A second example: Person X feels so sorry for hurting Person Y that they feel suicidal. They tell Person Y, but instead of making Person Y understand how sorry Person X is, this information is very upsetting for Person Y and makes them feel like they would be putting Person X’s life in danger if they didn’t accept their apology. Person Y feels they must put Person X’s feelings above their own, even though it was Person Y who was hurt by Person X.

Some general tips for apologising:

  • If not apologising “excessively” causes you anxiety, you can explain that. People may be more tolerant once they realise you’re not trying to annoy or manipulate them. A lot of people don’t actually realise that apologising repeatedly is almost always related to anxiety and / or trauma, they don’t realise it’s done out of fear!
  • One big apology may work better than a lot of apologies. It might take practice but that’s okay. You can tell people that you’re trying to cut down on apologies, and if they would be patient and give you clear responses to your big apology, that would help you.
  • Centre the person you’re apologising to. Prioritise their feelings and needs while you’re apologising to them. If you need some space to cool down or think, explain that - apologise briefly and promise to address it in more detail later. If it helps you, write out your apology and pay close attention to the wording.
  • Some ways you could apologise: in person, over the phone, in a letter, online. Think about which works well for you and ask whether your friends would be okay with it too.
  • Acknowledge what you are sorry for specifically. Don’t apologise for “everything” or your feelings or who you are. Only assholes want you to apologise for being yourself. Instead, apologise for the specific thing you did that hurt the person you’re apologising. For example, “I’m sorry that I broke your lamp” is a better apology than “I’m sorry that I got upset”. Name the thing you did!
  • Acknowledge their feelings. You may not be able to guess what their feelings are, but if you can or they’ve told you, you can tell them what you understand their reaction to be. For example, if you broke your friend’s lamp like in the example above, what did they feel? Were they scared when you were breaking it? Are they sad that that specific lamp is broken? Are they angry with you for breaking their property? Try to look at the situation from their perspective and think about what emotions that situation might cause.
  • If you don’t know exactly what they’re feeling or what you did wrong, you say “I’m sorry if you felt… / I’m sorry if I did something to upset you” BUT if they have already told you what they’re feeling or you are acknowledging what you did wrong, you say “I’m sorry that you felt… / I’m sorry that I did…” Using “if” after someone has told you what’s wrong tells them you weren’t listening or don’t think it’s worth getting upset about.
  • It kind of depends on the situation, but for me, I think it’s better not to explain why I did something too soon in an apology. It can sound like an excuse, like you’re saying you’re not really responsible. I think for me, the best way to explain yourself after you’ve unintentionally hurt someone is “I didn’t mean to hurt you, but I’m sorry that I have”.
  • When you’re apologising to people you want to work with in the future, you need to finish your apologies with a discussion of how you can avoid hurting them in the same way again. Give the person who was hurt the opportunity to talk about how what you did made them feel and what they want you to do or not do in future. In this conversation, you can explain yourself more, but try to focus on how you can work through the problem together, rather than on your own feelings and guilt.
  • It’s okay to want someone to forgive you, but nobody has to accept your apology. No matter how badly you want it, do not try to pressure others into accepting an apology.
  • You’re not responsible for everything. You aren’t solely to blame for every mistake or misunderstanding, even if you were involved. If people are expecting you to apologise for things you didn’t do, it’s okay to refuse.
