you know what really needs to be made and advertised more? kid friendly medical equipment
pill cases with steven universe and fluttershy and perry the platypus plastered on the cover, canes that come in bright sparkly colors and have stickers and fun ways to customize them, wheel chair wheel covers that light up and come in the colors of people’s hogwarts houses, nebulizer masks that make you look like your favorite cartoon character, leg braces and molds that are painted a kid’s favorite color, IV poles that look like flowers and giraffes, MIC-KEY* tubes with mickey mouse on them, cannula tubes made to make like funny moustaches or epipens that look like magic wands
there are disabled and chronically ill kids and babies, and even teens and young adults, who would feel a lot better about all the shit they have to do for their health if their supplies was more customized to them and their interests, the same way waterbottles and lunchboxes are
So I was reading the world of thedas and got to the part about Sebastian. And it just broke my heart. Oh seb. “She became the mother he’d always wished he had - someone who valued him for the person he was, rather than his political usefulness.” I - I think I’m gonna go cry now.
I gots the sniffles and my tummy don't feel good.
Aww my poor princess feels icky. Well baby girl, you're just gonna have to lay down and get a lot of rest. I want my baby to feel better. Cuddle all your stuffies since I can't be here all day and pop that binky in your little mouth so you can go to sleep. Remember to take your medicine and try to get something to eat. Don't push yourself too much and feel better for me, okay? I'll be back later to give you all the cuddles and kissies in the world.
But daddy then you'll get icky!
Shh, daddy is gonna take care of you and if I get icky then that's even more reason to just cuddle with you all day. Got it?
Fuck this scene killed me. Kei had always have this self deprecating air about him and after a while you figure out that it’s his defense mechanism. He got pulled out of a match because of an injury. He allowed himself to be escorted to the infirmary even telling the rest of the guys to hold forth while he was gone and then - and then - Akiteru (his brother, his forever hero, the person he never wanted to see him in this state) comes up and sees him at his weakest. Naturally he would turn to his defense mechanism of just casually putting himself down just so it all seems like it’s no big deal for him, that this is actually good because he can finally rest he’s no good now anymore anyway and at the final critical stages too, what a shame, but that’s okay because at least now he can finally rest what a relief. And then AND THEN he makes THE FACE just as soon as he turns his back to Akiteru and Yachi because godfuckingdammit this wasn’t supposed to happen, he was supposed to finish the game, and they were supposed to win with him there and Akiteru watching by the stands and he’ll be so so so proud of Kei just like how Kei was so proud of him when he was the ace in middle school and he was Kei’s hero. Imagine what this moment felt like for Kei, Kei who is so afraid of failing that he resolved himself to just not bother trying at the start of the series because what’s the use if you’re just gonna be disappointed in the end anyway. Kei who is so afraid of failing that it took years, people from other teams and his best friend literally shaking him and telling him it’s okay to try before he even did. Imagine what it felt like for Kei (atop the burden of worrying over how his team would hold up without him) seeing Akiteru seeing him fail and imagining that this was what it must’ve felt like for Akiteru in that moment years ago - seeing the one person you never want to disappoint see you fail.
FUCK JUST LEAVE ME HERE TO WEEP ABOUT KEI. AND HIS COMPLEX RELATIONSHIP ABOUT HIMSELF AND THE THINGS HE LOVE AND HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH AKITERU. FUCK TSUKISHIMA KEI’S WHOLE EXISTENCE DESTROYS MEEE. *sobs to eternity*
