its like when you take the first sip of tea, it painfully sizzles on your tongue
theres nothing you can do besides wait out the pain
you know the tea is still hot, yet you take another sip
this time the pain is more bearable
but now, you have two burnt patches on your tongue
these are going to take a few days to heal
each time you go to eat or drink something, you will be reminded of the two little burns
.an unpleasant sting.
this doesn’t stop you from sipping the tea
it tastes good therefore it must be finished, no matter how hot or cold it gets
determination to succeed such an insignificant task in the hope that the ego feels warm and accomplished
to prove a point?
i dont know
people seem to have a habit of going back to things that hurt them in the hope that the second,
third or forth time round
they will be stronger.
or possibly just more prepared.

You know one of the things I really love about Smarty? It's that you can completely shut him down by talking to him about sex.
*calls Smarty while he's not streaming, but everyone else is*
Oh my <i>god</i>, Chilled
*answering the phone* Oh hey, I was just about to call you. I'm escaping work.
Oh, awesome, cool, I just had a quick question. Uh, we haven't started yet, we're just getting things together. This is more I guess for my own personal thing, so don't talk to the other guys about this, uh-
I can <i>not</i> hear you, hold on one sec
Ok, how was work bro?
He's gonna reveal a bunch of private details
You there though?
Yeah, what's up?
So, serious question, and I need to kinda know- after how many dates you have sex with a woman? Like, is it two? Three?
Like, I'm just- I'm in three years of dates, like, is it three dates? Did I get the numbers confused? How many-
Can I just ask you a question? Are you currently on the livestream?
NO! We haven't started yet- Aphex, being typical Aphex, didn't show up yet. I think we said 5pm-
Hold on, wait, what?
So, three dates? Alright, we'll talk about it more afterwards, get back safe buddy.
... I can tell you're on the livestream right now
I'm not livestreaming, cross my heart. I am not live streaming.
... I just checked <i>Twitter</i>?
... Well, maybe <i>they're</i> livestreaming. Smarty, I gotta go something's going on, there's a creeper in my house, bye Smarty-
My friend linked me to this post this morning about Prompto needing to prove himself to Noctis and I didn’t want to hijack it with something vaguely related, so I’m linking it here. The writer made me think, though.
It reminded of the original Prompto character, who was in fact a spy
for Niflheim, and is sent to get close to Noctis. I am so glad
they went with the second option, because it is way less played out than
the enemies-to-friends story. Noctis would have had a very different
response if Prompto (having been spying on Noct, but then realizing he
really sees Noctis as a friend/comrade) had revealed he was a Niff–a
changed Niff, a good guy. I think the trust would have been broken at
that point, and the only way to get it back would be for Prompto to
There was so much going on in the Episode
Prompto trailer, but the things that made the biggest impact were the
references to Noctis. This episode is going to be so character-driven;
Prompto is going to face a lot of demons (figuratively, speaking). But
in my mind (if I understand his character at all), it’s going to be his
relationship with Noctis that fuels him to pick himself up and keep
going. He’s going to want to give up. He’s going to want to die,
even. But he’s going to be reminded that it’s not just about
him–there’s a bigger picture–and I think Noctis will play a big role
in this, even though he’s not present.
Prompto and Noctis have the
best developed relationship in the game in my opinion, and the one that
carries the most emotional significance (aside: I think “Bros on the
Road II” from the OST is either Prompto’s theme or Prompto and Noctis’s,
since it primarily plays during scenes that the two of them are alone.
These are also typically scenes that are heavy character development or
ones that are highlighting their close relationship). I’m not saying that Noctis doesn’t
feel close to Luna–not at all. He obviously feels a deep connection
to her from the time they spent together when he was a child, recovering
from the injury. But it’s interesting that the game shows Noctis shut
down when Luna is killed. When Prompto falls off the train, Noctis
becomes driven. He becomes angry and passionate; and Ardyn uses that
against him so much. Ardyn could have fooled him into pushing anyone
from that train, but he picks Prompto because he knows how important Prompto is to Noctis.
how disappointing the emotional impact of Prompto’s revelation
ultimately is, I’m glad they went this direction instead. I’ve probably
written hundreds of pages of fanfiction focused on Prompto’s and
Noctis’s relationship, yet I can still find more to say. There is
always another layer to discover, whether it’s platonic or romantic. I
have to thank the writers/developers on FFXV for making their
relationship so deep and real.
Super disjointed and stream of consciousness, but I wanted to get some thoughts out.
Hello UV and friends. Have any of your 3DS consoles been effected with the 002-0102 error? There's been a big ban wave for consoles and this had blocked online play features for them.
I have not been banned (yet, at least) but I know people who have–if you have custom firmware or otherwise hack your 3ds you need to take action to see if you were banned and possibly prevent it happening if not. Copying messages from @sons-of-ivaldi from the gay hack discord server:
“There has been an ongoing stream of bans from Nintendo towards people.
At the moment, we cannot point what the specific trigger for the ban is. It is a serial-based ban, so it does not affect your NNID on other consoles (Wii U, Switch). If you were affected, you will be banned from services that require your friend code (online games like Pokémon, Mario Kart 7 or Super Smash Bros.). You will still be able to access the eshop.
If your account has already been flagged by Nintendo, going offline will not make a difference.
The ban is serverside and has nothing to do with anything being changed on your console. I suggest you keep wireless off in case you have not been flagged to avoid it happening.
Please note that there is no way to know whether or not your account is flagged to be banned. You’ll just have to wait and see. We do not know how long they’ve been collecting information for, so every single one of us might be flagged and just waiting to get banned. Keep this in mind.
Can I have an imagine of Snape trying to help you with anxiety?
A/N: I hope you enjoy it! xxx
Draught of Peace.
You hid. That was the only thing you could do when it got this bad. You sat on the floor, hugging your knees. Thoughts bombarded your brain and whirled in-between each other as your heart pounded faster and harder every time a new wave of anxiety rippled through your body.
You had been trying to control it for years now. It hadn’t always been this bad, but with all the godforsaken things that had happened to you and your friends these past few years, your anxiety had been boiling over. You shook in silence as you waited for it to finish. Your cheeks wet with tears, hair clamping to your face as you sob quietly. Your fist presses against your forehead. It feels as if your throat is going to split open as you try to suppress the lump in your throat. You try to think straight, but your thoughts keep interrupting each other. You try to breathe, but you can’t. It feels like something heavy has fallen on you, pressing down on your body. The sensation of not being able to breathe is all you can feel now. Oh god One thought pushes through You’re going to die. This thought seems so clear compared to the others and you believe it. It repeats itself. Again and again it chants inside your head as you hyperventilate, suddenly not caring that you’re making noise. You crumble beneath the thought of you dying here, alone, whilst the voice in your head raises its voice.
You’re going to die, You’re going to die, YOU’RE GOING TO DI-
“Hello?” A voice reaches through to you. Light shines on you from behind the open door, breaking the darkness that had been consuming you before.
You hide your face behind your hands. “Leave.” You croak. “Just…Leave, please.” Your voice is barely more than a hoarse whisper. The voice speaks again. You can’t hear it over the rushing of your own pulse in your ears. Suddenly a pair of big, warm hands are on your arms. “It will be alright. I promise, just follow me.” The voice says. You recognise it.
You shake your head. You’re sure your legs will break underneath you if you attempt to stand. “I can only help you if you come with me, Y/N.” The hands move from your arms to your face, fingers wipe wet strands of hair away from your face. They rest on your wrist, a thumb gently rubbing the back of your right hand. “Come with me, now.” The voice murmurs.
You sit in an armchair. How you got here is a blur. Memories of being practically lifted by your potions professor and being supported by him as you make your way down to his office dance before your inner vision. The tears stream down your face. You don’t try to stop them or wipe them away. Your hands are intertwined in your lap. You pull and twist your fingers, something you always subconsciously do when you’re anxious. You feel sick. Your head is spinning, and a grim feeling of nausea swims in your throat. You feel so many things, yet you feel numb. You stare at nothing as your vision blurs at the edges from the tears. Theres nothing but silence in the office, except for the occasional sniffle or a hitch of breath that escapes you. Your potions professor is looking through the many potions he has on hand. His finger trails along the shelf as he reads the labels. He picks up a small bottle. ‘Draught of peace’ Is written in cursive on the label. Snape walks towards you. A feeling of pity filling him as he takes the sight of his student in. The student who usually felt so brave and stoic, was now shivering and sniffling. You looked strangely small, Snape thought to himself, though not as small as when he had found you, cramped into a corner of the supply cupboard. You wipe your nose on your sleeve as Snape opens the bottle and pours the contents into a teacup. He offers the teacup to you. Your hands shake vigorously as you try to take the cup. He puts a hand up to stop you and puts the teacup down. He takes your hands. “ Try to breathe, Y/N,” he says, “Breathe in and count to six, then breathe out.” You do as you’re told, your breath shakes as you exhale. You feel lightheaded. You close your eyes. “Good.” Snape mumbles. He reaches for the teacup again. You down it. The potions spreads a warm calming feeling through your body. You exhale and lean back in the chair. Snape brings a chair over beside yours and sits on it. He takes your hand in his. “Now, I think you and I have to have a talk, don’t you?” He says. You nod and look into your lap. “When did this start?” He asks. You take a deep breath and start talking. Hours pass, and after several sessions of crying and explaining, you fall asleep in the armchair. Snape watches you frown in your sleep and caresses your hand with his thumb as he ponders how he didn’t notice your anxiety before.
Days pass and you continue to talk to your professor. You get help from Madam Pomfrey, who assigns Draught of peace to you regularly, so that you always have it on hand. You feel more and more at ease, but whenever your anxiety gets the best of you, you always go to Professor Snape, who always lets you in and sits with you until it passes and you fall asleep in his armchair. You no longer spend time in the supply cupboard, you only pass it and shiver with memories of the lonely nights of crying yourself to sleep that took place there. Within months you feel completely at ease as you board the Hogwarts Express, with your friends. Finally able to laugh carelessly again. You smile as you remind yourself to send and owl with a thank you letter to Snape at some point during the summer.
I woke up in a cold sweat, my hands shaking slightly, and the beginnings of sunlight filtering through the trees and into the lot. These days, waking like this wasn’t peculiar. Ever since I left my home, I often found myself unable to sleep, and when I did, it wasn’t necessarily the most delightful of times either.Now was not the time to think of that. Chiding myself, I shrugged out of my jeans, opting for some leggings and an old sweater that may have been slightly too big. Tossing my hair up, I grab my things and make my way towards the outhouse-esque bathrooms. It was the first day back at school after a long summer, and I’d be damned if I looked the way I felt.
