Funny story about asking parents for one's childhood. I was extremely anxious about it, planned the whole speach, and then everything's gone wrong - I just got into the university teacher mode (despite I'm not a teacher), blabbered a lecture about autism for two hours, accidentally went out of the closet as non-binary and the effect was that my mother diagnosed herself with Asperger. I still didn't get those information about my childhood... afraid to ask again XD

That sounds horrible and hilarious! Well, since your mom diagnosed herself, maybe you could segway that into talking about yourself? That might work.


I hope it’s ok to draw something for you? Because you are awesome.

So… something you mentioned a while ago, about the shuttles checking Vortex out, and here is Vortex telling (off panel) Astrotrain to frag off, while Blast Off catch the change to check Vortex’s booty.

You don’t have to publish it, just keep it? I hope I am not totally wrong about what to draw. *runs away*

DIY disability help masterpost

This is Meanie’s masterpost of things she has and does in order to keep her disabled ass in check. ASD and ADHD are fun like that.

But seriously, I started writing this list so I’d know what of the stuff I’ve tried I actually found useful, but it also fulfils a need to show others that my brain doesn’t quite work like it should. I’m tired of just sucking it up and pretending like this isn’t a long-ass post. It will be subject to future updates.

Autistic Hermione thinking she’s being friendly when communicating with the boys at first and not realising how abrasively she comes across

Autistic Hermione reading all of her textbooks again and again because the whole study of magical arts is a special interest to her

Autistic Hermione feeling that she has something to prove, that autistic girls can do well in school, can succeed, can be witches and so overloads herself with classes

Autistic Hermione being very picky about the pronunciation of spells because in her therapy sessions they obsessed over her tone and inflection

the worst thing about anti-vaccination people is that they are disgustingly prejudice against people with autism, so much so that they would literally rather their child die of a curable disease than “risk” their child being neurologically different from them (even though it doesn’t freaking work like that in the first place).
