a little iffy but not bad

Interview With Eric’s Friend

In the 18 years since Columbine, there has been a fair amount of new information about Dylan Klebold released mostly by his family. This gives us more insight into his mindset and what type of person he was. However, hardly anything new has been released by Eric’s family or friends. He remains largely a mystery, as his family and friends have kept silent about him. Now, I realize that the transition from child to teenager changes people drastically, but any insight into the mind of Eric Harris at any point in his life can provide a more complete view of who he was as a person.

 Can you tell me a little about your childhood up to the point you met Eric?
-How old were you when you met Eric Harris?
-Can you recall the first time you met him?

I met Eric when I was about 9 or 10 years old.  The first time I met him was during my first baseball practice.  I’ve already told you the story of that day, so I won’t re-tell it unless you’d like me to.

How close would you say your friendship was with him? Were there any defining moments in your friendship?

I won’t lie and pretend that we were best friends or anything.  He was a grade above me in school, so he had more friends that were in his own grade, so we only would hang out or talk during recess or outside of school hours.  We did stay over at each other’s house once or twice maybe.  In hindsight, the biggest thing that stands out is how he reacted when he accidentally hit me with a baseball at my first practice. It’s quite a thing to think that he was so upset and sorry that he had hurt me at practice, then fast forward to seeing him on the news during high school.

In a few sentences, how would you describe Eric’s personality during the time you knew him? Was he a nice person, or mean?
-Do you recall any of his interests? What sort of things did you two bond over?

He was a really normal kid from what I knew of him growing up.  He wasn’t some obnoxious kid, nor was he overly shy.  He was very vanilla, in a good way. Around that age, most kids liked playing outside since there were always so many kids living on the air base, and video games.

Where did Eric rank on the social totem of the elementary school you two attended? Was he considered popular? Unpopular? Somewhere in between?

My recollection of Eric was as a very middle of the road kid.  I never recalled him getting picked on during recess or by other kids in the neighborhood.  He wasn’t mean to other people, at least as far as I can remember.

Did you ever meet Wayne and Kathy Harris or any other members of Eric’s family? If so, what did you think of the family dynamic/atmosphere of the household?
-What was his relationship with his father like? His mother?
-Have you ever met Kevin Harris? If so, what did you think of him?
-Do you have any memories that stand out of the Harris family?

I couldn’t say what his relationship was like with his parents behind closed doors, but I remember his dad or mom being at little league practices and games, which wasn’t the case for all of the kids growing up.  I don’t recall his dad being “that guy” who would yell at his kid from the stands or anything like that (my dad was “that guy”).
I was never really around Kevin, so nothing stands out about him to me.
Our dads worked together in the military, so they already knew each other before Eric and I ever met.

Did he ever give you any indication that he was violent or unstable? If so, could you elaborate?
-Did he bully anyone in school, or was he bullied?

No, there was nothing I saw that would have ever indicated that he was violent or unstable, which is why it was so shocking to me when I saw him on the news.  I don’t recall him ever bullying someone or being on the receiving end of it.

Do you have any specific memories that stand out of Eric? We’ve heard about the little league story, I’m wondering, are there any other memories that come to mind?

I just remember him being a nice kid, overall. The little league story only stands out now in light of what happened with Columbine.  If not for that, I wouldn’t really have any story that stands out about him.

Did Eric ever speak about wanting to do anything violent, or said anything weird along those lines?

No, he was not an angry kid when I knew him.  I definitely would have remembered him saying something outlandish, even if Columbine hadn’t happened. 

Did you keep in contact with Eric after he moved away?

We ran into each other on occasion at Plattsburgh, since both of our families moved there, but again, he was at a different school and we didn’t see each other much.  No internet back then, so I completely lost track of him after Plattsburgh.

Are there any inaccuracies you have noticed in the media/culture surrounding the persona of Eric Harris?

I’ve only seen the part of Bowling for Columbine that pertains to the kids from Oscoda that were interviewed. I was off at college during that time, so I wasn’t aware of the interviews after the fact.  I wouldn’t have agreed to be on camera talking about it, because that’s just not who I am.  I will say that at least one of the kids interviewed seems a little “iffy” to me.  I know it’s bad to say, but Eric’s father was a high-ranking officer, so I have a difficult time believing that he would have been in the same social circle as some of the kids interviewed.   Not to say that Eric would have thought himself better than them, it’s just that he wouldn’t have been in the same circles by virtue of his circumstance as the child of a military officer.  I can’t say with 100% certainty that the people interviewed in the documentary were lying, but i’m skeptical.

What are your personal thoughts/opinions of Eric Harris and the Columbine massacre? What do you personally believe led to Eric and Dylan killing their schoolmates and then themselves?

Growing up in the air force, you move frequently.  After the base in Wurtsmith, we moved 2 more times.  At Wurtsmith and then Plattsburgh, I was a relatively popular kid and did not have any real social issues with people.  At the very last base we moved to, I was instantly a social pariah and picked on incessantly. It’s a weird thing to go from one end of the social spectrum to the other, just based on the air base you’re at, but it can definitely happen.  The last move completely scarred me socially and I still have issues based on the experience.  I think it’s completely possible that Eric experienced this when he moved to Colorado, possibly even before that, when he moved to Plattsburgh.  I rarely saw him there since we were in different schools.  It would not surprise me if he didn’t start getting bullied until after he moved to a new base.  It can be that simple that someone is a regular kid who gets along with people at one air base and then moves to another where you get bullied constantly and completely change your mentality.

Thank you all so much for your interest in this interview! Hope you enjoyed the read!

Jefferson was fired the next morning. Just before Jefferson left the office, Alexander punched the man in the face. John turned a blind eye and acted oblivious to it.

John did look up when he noticed Madison rushing over to get in between them, but John so effectively blocked the way to hold Madison back. He was going to enjoy this. 

John smiled, even cheered as Alex yelled, “If you even look at her the wrong way, I’ll call my other boyfriends to kick your ass too!” 

John knew he should have stopped Alex, knew he should have let Madison be the one to pull them apart, he found himself saying, “Land a good punch on him for me too, babe!” 

That was why Washington sent them home for the day with a stern look. With nothing else to do, they decided to go visit you.

ENGL145, Creative Fiction Writing

       When Nursey sees the option on his list of classes, at first he doesn’t even think about it. He is a poetry guy, he likes obscure metaphors and overwhelming imagery. And he’s good at it, so he doesn’t have any reason to branch out of his comfort zone. Then he makes his schedule and realizes that all the English electives he wants to take are during practice or when he already has a scheduled class that’s fulfilling a credit. All that’s left over is Creative Fiction and Straight White Guy Novels Only (he may be paraphrasing the second one a little.)
        So Nursey checks the box next to ENGL145, Creative Fiction Writing.
        That’s the start of it, really.

Revenge of the Sickness

An Ethan fiiiccc!! Sorta a sequel to “Little Blue Sick Boy” where you get sick from his stomach bug.

Fic Request:
“Where the reader is sick with a sore throat but is whiny like a child and Ethan finds it absolutely adorable and Teamiplier comments on how smitten Ethan is.” 

I changed it a little so he feels bad about getting you sick as well as finding your whiny voice a little cute. Hope that’s ok.

Another fit of sneezes attacked you. You groaned and sniffled, wiping your nose in case of stray nose liquid. 
“Aww, no,” Ethan said with a pitying gaze. “Are you sick?” 
You shrugged, coughing before you were able to speak. “I do feel a little iffy,” 
Everyone stopped at the sound of your voice.  It was a little pitched, almost squeaky in it’s tone. 
Your eyes widened, surprised that your body could make that sort of voice. 
“Oh my God, that was adorable!” Ethan laughed. 
You glared up at him, about to speak, but then slamming your lips shut. 
“Oh come on,” Ethan said, “Say something else.” 
You only shook your head vigorously, stubbornly crossing your arms and looking away.
Mark chuckled, “I think (Y/N) caught your illness,  Ethan.” 
Ethan grimaced, “Oh. Sorry.” 
You shook your head, but didn’t reply. The hell with your voice. You weren’t allowing this sickness to crack your dignity.
Tyler chuckled, “She doesn’t want to speak. (Y/N) we won’t laugh at you.” 
You glared at him, shuffling in your seat. “Yes you will.” 
The boys erupted with laughter and you felt your cheeks glow red. Amy whacked Mark’s arm and crossed the room to you. 
“Alright, we should get some medicine into you.” 
“No, I’m alright.” You chirped and Ethan almost melted at the sound. But Amy dragged you to your feet and pushed you towards the bathroom. 
She knew how much you hated medicine. And if you didn’t take it willingly, she’d force it down your throat. 
Knowing this, you reluctantly took the tablets and spoonful of cold medicine without complaint. 
“Now, go get some rest.” Amy ordered. 
“But I have work to do,” You squeaked and Ethan chuckled. Having followed you into the bathroom, he leaned against the door-frame. 
“You don’t want it getting worse.” He said, “Come on, I’ll get some soup for you while you work.” 
You tried to resist, but Amy playfully kicked your ass with her foot and pushed you after the blue-boy. 

He set you up by your desk. Wrapping a blanket around your shoulders and getting you  bowl of soup to nibble on while you worked. 
“You know this is really unnecessary.” You said, your voice cracking slightly.
Ethan only smiled at you. “You did this for me.”
“Yeah, but you were throwing up.” You commented. Trying to force your voice to sound somewhat normal. “You literally were chucking up your stomach. I just have a sore throat and a stuffy nose.”
“I’m still going to take care of you,” Ethan replied with a shrug.
You half glared at him. Slipping the headphones onto your head and blocking out everything in the room.
As Ethan went to his own desk, he was unaware of the three heads peering at them from the stairs.
Mark, Amy and Tyler were all watching their interactions from the steps. Staring through the railings and whispering between each other.
“He’s so adorable,” Amy said about Ethan. “I wish those two would get together already.”
“I’m sure if (Y/N) asked, he’d get her anything they wanted.” Mark giggled. “Our little blue-boy seems rather attached,” Tyler agreed.
Suddenly Amy squeaked and ducked down. The boys turned, and upon seeing your quizzical expression staring at them, they cursed and ran downstairs. 

Throughout the day, you found yourself feeling more and more exhausted the longer you slaved over your work. 
The soup helped keep your body energized but the meds were kicking in and your was getting tired from fighting the sickness. 
Your sneezes had worsened and you kept rubbing your eyes to keep them from getting fuzzy. 
Upon the fourth time redoing the task in front of you, you gave up and stood. 
“Having a break?” Ethan asked, turning away from his desk to look at you. 
“I think I’m gonna take a nap or something,” You told him. “I’m suddenly quite sleepy.” 
He nodded and followed you downstairs. Amy and Mark were on the couch watching a movie, and Tyler was across the room reading. 
“Hey, how are you feeling?” Mark asked you when he spotted you. 
“Sleepy,” You replied, stifling a yawn. “I’m gonna head to bed.” 
The three nodded, sending you off with “get well” and “sleep well”. Ethan continued to make sure you didn’t fall over on your way to your bedroom. 
“Do you need anything? He asked as you crawled onto the bed. You shook your head, laying your head on the pillow with a content sigh. 
“I’m alright. Thank you, Ethan.” You said through another yawn. “This is the thanks you give me? A cold and a sore head?” 
Ethan chuckled, scratching the back of his neck. “Sorry. I feel terrible about that. Thanks for taking care of me, though. It was nice.” 
“I couldn’t leave you to suffer alone,” You said with quiet chuckle. 
Your eyes closed on their own. In the few seconds of your mind falling into sleep, Ethan maneuvered the blankets over you. Setting a box of tissues on your bedside table and making sure the bin was nearby so the used papers weren’t on the floor. 
Amy had crept up on the door, peering in and smiling when Ethan moved a strand of hair of your face. He sat on the other side of the bed. Taking a book off your shelf and reading it. Settling beside you as you slept. 
She clicked a quick photo and dashed back to the two men. Gleefully showing them the two of you.

Nico discovers the world of ‘American Cooking’ (fried butter) and wants to see how deeply he can immerse himself in this before it kills him. (Dad’ll just bring him back after, its just a fun little experiment)

Three weeks in he starts to feel a little iffy so he goes to the doctor to see how it’s coming along. His arteries are completely clogged, like, there is nothing going through that in the least, and according to his doc here he should have been dead months ago. 

Turns out, factoring in stress, bad eating, not sleeping, he should have died at least six or seven times from that alone, but Hades -really- did not want an impromptu visit from his son and just kinda…. put it off so they wouldn’t have to speak for more than just holidays. 

i get so frustrated… every time i meet someone my parents know, the only
thing i ever hear is, “you talk/look JUST like your mom!” and i feel like nobody ever sees me as my own person. i’m just a mini, blonde version of my mother. which is not a *bad* thing; she’s lovely… but i feel forever doomed to be labeled as, “___’s little sister” or “__’s youngest daughter” and never me.

Got7 Kinks

Anon your request got eaten but I know you requested this, along with Block B I think?, so damn long ago and I’m sorry for the wait but here you go. I talk a lot of shit in this just saying, read with caution.

Jackson: Thighs, Dark Skin, Sweat; Jackson’s the only one I know for sure, and that’s why he has the most and he’s first up here. I don’t really think he has a kink for dark skin, but I know he love love loves him some beautiful tan girls. We all know he loves thighs, he makes sure to tell the fandom every single day. Thick thighs would get this boy so fucking horny, he’d love to just squeeze at them and bite and suck and leave really dark marks. He said, somewhere, that he likes girls who sweat and workout once, and what better place to do that than in this kids bedroom. He’s a steamy, hot, slow, loud sweaty sex kinda guy. Plus I’m just going to casually slip in the daddy kink down here. Jackson is so daddy af it’s not even fucking funny, plus it’s fun to call guys daddy so.

Mark: Biting, Bondage, Hickies; I literally only chose biting for Mark because his mouth is just so god damn pretty. I fucking can’t with his perfect teeth okay and whether he has a biting kink or not, who fucking wouldn’t want those pearly whites all over their fucking body? If you don’t you’re crazy. He’d be such a tease too, knowing you like the biting as much as he does and he’d slowly bite your bottom lip, slowly tug on your nipples, just slowly bite every god damn fucking thing he can while you’re tied up to his bed and helpless. Can you imagine him just fucking biting onto your shoulder when he comes? Fuck. He’s the jealous type who wouldn’t let you leave the house unless every fucking inch of your skin was covered in bright purple bruises, just so no man talks to you.

Youngjae: Bondage, Whining, Slut Shaming; Uhhh this is like the best combination of fucking kinks I swear okay. Bondage, you know tying your hands up, or your legs up, handcuffing you. I also feel like blindfolding would be included in that, but it’s iffy af. On to whining, I can just see him getting so worked up with your high pitched whines, and that could easily bring him to the edge, no problems. He’d do extra little things like twist your nipples and maybe spank the side of your thigh so you’d whimper even louder. We all know what slut shaming is right? We should but I’ll explain anyway. It’s simply shaming a woman for being a slut. I’m not meaning slut shaming in a bad way at all, nor would Youngjae use it in a bad way, little sentences like ‘That’s right slut, suck my cock,’ or ‘You little slut you couldn’t even wait five minutes for me?’ Would give him the extra push to come, there’s a little dominance in there as well.

Jin Young: Daddy; I feel like he would rather have a mommy kink, but I don’t even know if that’s a thing so we’ll go with daddy. Everyone knows how the daddy kink works, and with Jinyoung it would definitely come with all the perks. Calling him daddy outside of the bedroom, letting him pamper you like a baby all the time, bending you over his lap and spanking you, just everything you know. He’s so sweet so he’d probably feel bad afterwards and make it up to you by fucking you really slow and lovingly. Baby girl and Princess are his favorite nicknames for you.

BamBam: Orgasm-denial, Teasing; Whoo alright here we go. Bam Bam is fucking bae, just wanted to throw that out there first. He’s such a little fucking tease as well and ugh. He’d ghost his fingers and lips all over your body, loving the way you’d squirm under his light touches. As for orgasm denial, this lovely fuck fuck would happily pound into you and pull out just when you’re about to come. Then start fucking you really fast again and instead of pulling out, just slow the pace of his thrusts down. Your whines and whimpers would go straight to his cock and he would quickly fuck you both to release.

JaeBum: Dominace, Hair Pulling, Spanking; Alright another hella good combination of kinks so le go. Dominance my lord he’d be so god damn dominant and if you disagree I’ll fukkin fight you. I can see him not letting you touch him, and when you tried he’d grab your arms and slam them down to the mattress, punishing you(not really) with a sharp, deep ass thrust that makes you squeak. If you couldn’t keep your hands off, that’s when he’d flip you over and hold your head to the bed with his hand curled into your hair. He’d fuck you hard and fast from behind, pull on your hair a little bit, spank your ass and groan at the way it blooms red. He’s the full package okay, get with this one if you down with rough shit.

Sorry about Youngjae’s essay but also not really.

Admin B
Long ranty post about someone I used to really like

I’m honestly so iffy about Taylor Nicole Dean now bc of her association with Brian and ever since I got so much shit for saying I had concerns about that and her recent pet purchases on social media like I mean I apologized profusely but 1st of all she told me I shouldn’t have made that public bc she got a lot of hate and I should’ve privately messaged her….she got maybe TWO other people that simply agreed with me and weren’t rude to her at all? Also she does not check her private messages so like it was a shock she even saw the public one tbh and 2nd it’s very clear she has no intentions of looking into why bhb reptiles is just bad like really really bad and as an animal educator she shouldn’t be supporting people like that just for fame but I don’t know that’s just me😕 like I don’t know I’ve still been watching her videos just bc I was a REALLY big fan of hers but I just don’t know if I like her anymore? I know I said she handled the Instagram feud really well but like tbh that’s bc I had so much anxiety over the whole thing when I look back at it it was really an overreaction on her part and she made me feel super guilty and never confirmed that there were no ill feelings she just kinda let the hate go on against me but was so upset about the “hate” she got that her mom got involved? Like it wasn’t that big of a deal?? Plus she said to private message her my concerns and I did as well as an apology and the messages were never opened just like I knew they never would be! And her fans were so ill informed and quick to aggression saying her and Brian were perfect and that their pets were none of my business and then someone that CLEARLY follows (or I suppose followed) this blog fucking said that I have no place to judge other people’s pet choices since I’m a full time college student with a “large” (it’s really not imo) pet collection of my own bc apparently me being a college student means I can’t own pets?? Like I’m gonna make a post about this of course but pets are not something people need to mind their own business about people NEED to be critical of others care in order for the community as a whole to grow and if you can’t handle that kind of criticism (especially when it’s done in a very respectful manner as I feel I did) then you’re not ready to do right by your pets. I don’t know her videos used to brighten my day and now I feel kinda weird and sick whenever I see a new one is posted and debate whether or not I should watch it. Tbh if she would AT LEAST address the whole Brian thing I’d probably not be thinking about unsubbing rn she SAW and REPLIED to my comment saying that he was a really bad dude and that she needs to look into that if she wants to protect her reputation and she completely ignored the subject. And I feel like it’s solely bc she cares more about avoiding the hate and getting some subs from his fans I don’t know she just doesn’t seem as genuine to me anymore with all this going on and I don’t hate her at all but…I’m just kinda iffy and honestly a little sad about it bc she was such an inspiration for me and I don’t want to not like her anymore but I just don’t feel as good about supporting her now

There really a lot to unpack in this little post

  • “White people” is not a culture
  • A lot has been said about piercings and other body mods on here. You can check out the tag. It is normally fine for anyone to get a piercing because so very many cultures do them. It’s what then you hang from there that can get iffy. 
    • Side Note - Just beacuse it means one thing to you, doesn’t mean it is the only meaning that matters. If you are going into another culture, you are a guest. As a gust, you must respect their rules and assigned. Know how people will read you going in! 
  • Only people “of color” get piercings? Read a book please. Go outside. Decide what “of color” means in a global context
  • “A variety of cultures of color” and “a specific tradition of color”

There is nothing remotely specific about “of color.” 

I love the term people of color when it is used correctly. PoC is an ideal go to for minorities in a majority white culture. It is a good summery when you don’t have the time or space to say all the different people groups. 

Language is and always will be an essential element in the struggle for understanding among peoples. Changes in the words and phrases we use to describe each other reflect whatever progress we make on the path toward a world where everyone feels respected and included.

There isn’t an a single group of even region cited here. That’s really bad for any argument, but this was jut a lazy answer. If I didn’t know better I’d call it a troll, but I know it isn’t.

If you are going to call it cultural appropriation you need to be about to say who from and at least partly how. Nothing belongs to all people of color and no one deserves to be generalized so much. 

NDRV3 - Kiibo comforting a chubby S/O with self esteem issues

Mod Kaito showed me this ask and we agree that we all want to hug you, anon. I know how hard it is to have self esteem issues and I wish you the best and I want you to know we love you <3 - Mod Rantarou

Also, I did this in headcanon format so I hope that’s fine!

  • He notices you’ve seemed a little different today.
  • You still seem like you, of course, but something seems off.
  • He tries to analyze it, but looking up “person seems a bit off” doesn’t really, help,
  • and he’s slightly worried, wondering what to do because he doesn’t want to ask you in case you get upset.
  • So he’s there, quiet, thinking/panicking and you notice, and go to ask him what’s wrong and
  • “TURN ON.”
  • “…what.”
  • That was not what he was supposed to say.
  • He stutters, and tells you that you’ve seemed a little off today, and he wanted to, well,
  • not turn you on in that way
  • but try and find a way to make you seem better.
  • He asks you what’s wrong and you try to brush it off, but you eventually tell him about your self esteem issues.
  • He goes quiet, and you worry a little and try to laugh it off.
  • “It’s not that bad, I just feel a little iffy about myself sometimes..”
  • Cue a small forced giggle, but it still takes him a few seconds before he speaks.
  • “Why?”
  • You repeat his question, confused.
  • “I mean…you’re lovely.”
  • You swear your heart just started beating more.
  • “You’re really nice. And funny, and you know how to take a joke, and your eyes shine so nicely when you’re excited about something and the faces you make when you’re daydreaming are adorable. You look wonderful in all your clothes and your hugs feel so nice and warm and your skin color and shape are wonderful!! I mean, I’m forever going to look this way no matter what, but you get to grow and change and no matter what you always look amazing!”
  • “I..suppose I can’t change how you feel about yourself but…I think you’re amazing, just the way you are, and I hope one day you can feel that way too!”

    • don’t forget to remind him that you love him as much as you love the others !! it’s not often that he lets himself relax and be open like this !
    • he loves you all v much !! he fell in love with you before herc (but after john, alex, and laf), ‘cause he actually got to see how you interacted with the boys and when he tells you how he feels about you, you respond that you’ve always known, kinda, because he keeps a stoic disposition most of the time, so any small changes are pretty obvious–
      • but there’s a v big filter between his thoughts and his actions, so however much you think he adores you, it’s Always More !!!
      • (he and herc are v cute together because george gets Cold to the touch while herc is Warm and there are many cuddles to make up for lost time)
  • during the holiday season, herc and john knit sweaters, sometimes,,,
    • they always go one size larger, ‘cause alex’s weight fluctuates depending on what project he’s working on (laf makes sure he eats, don’t worry, but alex just kinda loses and gains weight v fast!!)
      • plus, they’re still working out george’s size for sweaters–he’s not as broad as herc, but he’s still A Tol,,,,
  • alex adores staying up until the early morn, watching movies with all of you,, he likes leaning his head against your shoulder and wrapping his arms around your middle,,,
    • he has a big ol’ grin the whole time,,,
    • laf will tease him about it, and him and alex may switch to french for their playful arguing (as they always do)
    • (herc is looking over at them and smiling–his mind drifts to how new years is gonna go down, especially because he’s got a bunch of people who he wants to smooch on the countdown,,,)

Where did Cloud go?

Cloud’s just focusing on finishing his degree and opening his shop at the moment! He also wanted to drop some more of his responsibilities in favor of being able to care for me a little more as my health, both mental and physical, has been a little iffy of late.

He still informally helps me with confessions when he has time (he does grammar, I do editing) but he’s just not on the official roster any longer, as he doesn’t have enough time to do our daily quota and didn’t want to drag down the ranks if we could get someone with more time availability in instead.

He’s totally fine and happy and healthy though, nothing bad happened to him! Just life priorities ^^

Alternative Magical Uses for Chocolate

So you love chocolate. Like, really love it. All its various forms and fashions and flavors. You’d eat it every day if you could (and you do). 

And hey, you’re also a witch! And you think it’d be a really cool idea to utilize one of your greatest loves into your spells and rituals! Awesome, yeah? (Yes. Yes, it is.)

Only then you start researching to get some ideas, and it turns out that all the traditional uses for chocolate in magic have to do with generating love/lust. And not that there’s necessarily anything wrong with that, but you’re not feeling it. Maybe you’re aromantic and/or asexual, like me. Maybe you just went through a bad breakup and all thoughts of romance make you sick right now. Maybe you’re really iffy about the consent minefield involved with love spells and want to steer clear, or maybe that just isn’t your magical niche- there are literally innumerable reasons for not wanting to utilize chocolate for its traditional magical uses. 

So if any of that sounds familiar, or if you’ve got the urge to get a little inventive, I’ve brainstormed up a few nontraditional ways to use chocolate magically:

  • Dark chocolate is quite high in antioxidants. Use it in spells to rid yourself of toxic people, or help you cleanse yourself of negative emotion.
  • Dark chocolate is also anti-inflammatory. You might find it useful in spells or rituals meant to calm strong emotions or diffuse tension, or even to rebuild broken bridges.
  • Both milk and dark chocolate contain caffeine, and could be used in energy boosting spells and rituals. 
  • Milk chocolate is also the world’s most popular comfort food and mood booster. When directing your magical energy to comfort and uplift, you might find milk chocolate useful. I’ve also used it when warding my house, and it’s really amplified that comforting, safe, yay-I’m-home feeling I get when I walk in the door. 
  • White chocolate has the highest sugar and cocoa butter content. Use in any situation that could use a little “sweetening”- like, say, when you’re about to start a new job and you want them to offer you a really good benefits package- or when you need to be able to “slip” your way through a tricky situation. 

I’m sure you all could come up with many, many more uses than the small list I’ve created here. If you have an idea, please share! And remember, when using food with magic, remember to clean up after yourself really well, because ants :P

Isn’t Selina already a millionaire?? And that’s part of why she’s so unrelatable to the general public? She was a lawyer before she ran for office and she’s “independently wealthy.” If that’s the case then where are all of these random money troubles coming from? I know it’s probably just to hammer home the thing about Catherine getting most of the estate but…that plot point seemed a little iffy to me.

Also I totally agree with some other posts that I read that say that they’re hitting the “haha look at how blatantly awful and mean Selina is” point a bit too hard. It’s way better to me when it’s more subtle; I’m not a huge fan of ridiculously cruel Selina. BUT overall. Fairly decent, I thought. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens later on!

Why queer hockey webcomic Check, Please! is stealing the internet's heart
Too bad it's overrated.
By Aja Romano

I’m not sure how to feel about this. I first saw the link on Ngozi’s twitter and that subtitle, “Too bad it’s overrated”, had me prepared to get really mad.

I dunno if the author chose it, or someone else? Because in the end it didn’t really reflect the content of the article, which did have a lot of positive things to say about the comic. The criticism was not so harsh and didn’t feel like it would add up to an overall judgement of “overrated”.

This article is clearly written from the point or view of someone who has only read through the main comic once and that’s it. And I mean, obviously that’s normal when people review things for publications, and the conclusions drawn from that are valid. But of course we fans see things very differently and to us, claims like “we know next to nothing about Bitty” seem kinda ludicrous. I especially take issue with the accusation that Ngozi has sacrificed character development for fan service, I don’t think that’s true at all. (And does anyone else feel a little bit iffy about the focus on how much money she makes or am I just reading into things now?)

So, on the one hand, it is exciting for Check, Please! to get this kind of publicity, and like the article says, Ngozi seems to be really going places, and it doesn’t seem impossible that this might even lead to something like a Netflix series one day. (!!!) Articles like this are going to pique the interest of potential readers outside of Tumblr and that’s great.

On the other hand, I’m still salty about “Too bad it’s overrated.” First of all, that’s an unnecessarily mean thing to say about a passion project that one single person has put an enormous amount of work into. Second of all, a lot of people just look at the title & subtitle without reading the article, and form an opinion based on that. It’s putting the idea that “oh, this thing is overrated and probably not worth my time” into their heads, and that makes me sad because as far as I know, almost everyone who reads Check, Please! really loves it.

hey so i get that this is a Bad Topic and I really, really, really don’t want to seem like a transphobe ;-; but,, would it be transphobic to hc a trans character as nonbinary? or a nb character as binary trans? sorry. i hope that’s not transphobic. gosh,, sorry

Mmm, I’m a little more iffy on that and tbh I’m not sure if I have the authority to answer but I think, the way I see it I don’t think it would be transphobic to headcanon a trans character as non-binary as long as you’re careful about what non-binary gender you headcanon them as? Like, headcanoning a trans man as being a femme-aligned agender person is bad I’d say but it wouldn’t be so bad to headcanon him as a demiboy or someone else who was masculine-aligned

and headcanoning a nb character as binary trans is also, again, it depends on the character and what their gender is like if they express explicit discomfort with being called a girl you probably shouldn’t headcanon them as a trans woman you feel? 

That’s my two cents. And people often say that trans and non-binary are synonymous (though as a non-binary person I don’t personally see myself as falling under the trans umbrella) so you just have to be careful that you’re not defeating the purpose of the character being written as trans or non-binary in the first place, if that makes any sense

it really depends on the situation

How would the 2ps react to their loved one dying during child birth? How would they treat the child? I need it for a thing i want to do that makes me horrible

2p America/ Allen Jones: Is broken. He refuses to throw out any of your stuff and the child becomes his primary focus, names the child after you, keeps an ever so watchful eye on them. Tells them all about their mother and how amazing she was. Extremely protective of this child.

2p England/ Oliver Kirkland: Gets home and loses his shit, breaks everything, cries his sanity out. He loves this child with all his heart, but he’s too depressed to do anything for weeks. Once the initial depression is over, no one is ever touching this child. It’s all he has left of you, he see you in this child, and he can be happy with that.

2p Canada/ Matthew Williams: The only reason he’d thought of having a child was the idea of raising it with you, but now that that was over, he had no idea what to do. Should he even keep it? It was what he had made with you, an ultimate symbol of two people’s love, creating new life. But right then he needed a drink, the doctor’s head, and a cry, something he hadn’t done in years. In the end he would raise the child to be just like him. He can’t bear to think of the child as a piece of you, so he thinks of it as more a little brother or sister, it helps him cope.

2p France/ Francois Bonnefoy: He hates kids, so he was a bit iffy to begin with on having a child, but you’d wanted one so bad. So he thought, if you were there, maybe he’d find happiness with it to? But now you were dead. He’d try to keep it, for your sake, but every day he just got moodier and more depressed, until he either decides he can’t do this anymore and puts the child into foster care, or the child is taken away from him.

2p China/ Zao Wang: He would be devastated. But he had a child to take care of, a child which he’d wanted since the two of you first met. The first couple of years for the child would have several rough patches. For instance he might start thinking about you and totally forget to make meals for the both of them, forget to bathe it, put it to bed, such things as that. But once he was able to find a sufficient sign (according to him) that you were up there, watching over both him and the child, he would pull through this state (somewhat) and would be that one parent that’s extra af. He would tell the child all about you, and how much he loved you, and how much he loves them. But he would never fully get over his depression. So the neglect would come less frequently, but much stronger, such as maybe a day or so of him not coming out of his room, the child would have to learn independence, fast.

2p Prussia/ Gilen Beilschmidt: The poor baby shatters, the moment you flatline his heart and soul burn into nothing. You’d loved him, actually loved him. Despite his issues and his anxiety and of course his violent tendencies, and now you were gone. The only one he was willing to truly open up to. And he was left with a black mark of your existence. He couldn’t keep a plant from withering away without your help, how would a child fare with him? He would love it to death, but would put it to adoption out of fear and depression, but he will always know where it is and how it’s doing, believe me.

(This is not done I have more to add but my computer is about to restart on me)
