because do I have to explain why

blueepics  asked:

so i have been researching autism and aspergers and i have seen a therapist that says that i have most of the traits. so i wanted to know if it was normal to be constantly irritated by others, especially when they ask lots of questions?

I know that’s been my experience! If my parents have complained about it to any professionals knowledgable about autism they seem to accept it as a usual thing.

I’m not sure exactly why it is but I think that it can be a mixture of things depending on the situation, such as:

- timing (not wanting to answer questions about something because I’m busy doing something else)

- energy (so not wanting to have to deal with questions because it’s exhausting having to try to think up how to explain and then actually verbalise it)

- lack of interest (if the questions aren’t about something I’m interested in or interested in talking about, I suppose irritability could be caused by boredom - I also get very irritable if other people are telling me things and I don’t want to listen because I’m not interested)

- anxiety (that someone might make fun of me or challenge me in some way - for example, if someone asks what came in the post for me and I don’t want to tell them in case they respond negatively to the idea of me buying myself something that they don’t see the point in).

- a strong desire for privacy (so irritation over someone wanting you to talk about something you don’t want to talk about, or irritation over someone asking you a question in front of other people who you don’t want to have to discuss things with)

- frustration over it literally just being difficult to answer, even if they’re seemingly quite simple questions, or over the questions seeming silly. 

- confusion (not understanding what they’re specifically asking, what kind of answer they require, why they’re asking it, etc).

Do others experience this?

I'm curious about American Gods. If the characters are all supposed to be deities, do you know why they're named things like "Mr Wednesday" and "Mr Nancy?" (I'm asking because you've said that you've read the book)

Sure I’ll try to explain it the best that I can! So, the book (and show) is about old gods who have fallen out of favor living in America amongst humans. They have very few followers/believers so they have to live human lives. So my assumption is that there are two reasons why some of them have names like this (because not all of them bother with aliases): The biggest one is just that Neil Gaiman probably wanted to make some of these characters more of his own, since the gods they represent are based off the actual ones from folktales. Also, calling them something other than their actual name throws the reader off a bit if they aren’t completely familiar with mythology. 


Mr. Wednesday is the Norse god Odin, and Wednesday is named after Odin (or Woden) and so Wednesday is known as Odin’s Day. Mr. Nancy is the African god Anansi, and I think it’s just meant to be a clever spin on the name since they sound familiar. Another example is Mr. Ibis and Mr. Jacquel, who are the Egyptian gods Thoth and Anubis. They both are depicted as half human / half animal: Thoth has the head of an ibis (or crane) and Anubis has the head of a jackal or wolf. So to sum it all up, I think the reason they have these names is to keep it a little mysterious until the reader puts it together or they reveal who they are. Hope that was helpful!

You damn stelena and steroline fans delena was endgame because they are the best ship on the show get that through your damn heads already. Stelena was doomed from the start and steroline was just to put 2 people together for the hell of it. delena was the real true love story and no other ship can beat them. Its like I have to keep explaining to damn babies over and over again. Geez.

If you’re so frustrated then why do you keep coming here trying to explain it to us? It seems like you’re insecure about your ship. I mean, I would be too, anon, considering how badly written it is.

stop excusing abusive behaviour with “im mentally ill!” ESPECIALLY the “why do you hate mentally ill people” shit. you are a huge reason as to why we are often seen as inherently abusive. you don’t get a pass because you’re mentally ill. you can EXPLAIN your behavior but excusing your abusive behavior is almost a little abusive in itself. no one will be less traumatized because their abuser is mentally ill. yes, i know, it sucks being mentally ill and can affect our relationships but you don’t get a pass. you have to reflect on your actions and take responsibility for them.

Genji’s lines in “Heroes of the Storm” reveal the following:

  • He thanks Overwatch for saving his life, because he was barely alive when they came across him.
  • He notes that Overwatch has the power to produce such technology and save lives this way (which I assume means they are one of the very few organizations that can do that). 
  • He explains that his body is not a weapon; it is a massive, highly advanced prosthetic.
  • He does not understand why people call him “Mr. Roboto” when he isn’t actually a robot.
  • He references the “my body is ready” meme, so I guess being a filthy memer that cites ancient memes in the year 2070 runs in the family. 

He also has lines that relate to Hanzo:

  • “In hindsight, I should have listened when Hanzo said he had the high ground.”
  • “My father once told me a story of two dragons who were grounded for a week because they stayed out past curfew.”

I thought I’d share because the lines relating to Hanzo really interest me. I also don’t know if these can be considered canon, but good to keep in mind, y’know?

I like to imagine aliens that have no concept of creative expression. Aliens that design technology only for efficiency and ease of life. Them having books and movies only to convey information. Imagine how baffled they be by humans. They’d be like “what are art museums? You just go to a building and look at pictures?” “Yeah they’re pretty!” “What do they mean?” “Art means different things to different people. It depends on the person!” And they’re just so confused. Or “why are there… why does this cellular phone, as you call it, come in multiple colors?” “Because people like different colors” “but…. why? Does the rose gold phone have a different purpose?” “No they’re all the same, just different colors” “but??????” Or my personal favorite: humans trying to explain the concept of a person having a favorite color. “Why do humans have favorite colors? Do different wavelengths of light mean different things to different people?” “No they just look pretty. I like green. Green is a pretty color.” “But why??????” “Just because.” And they’re just so perplexed and frustrated


did some facial ref practice with the vento aureo gang also @ davidpro part 5 when????

Where does love go when it goes?
Explain it to me… because I don’t understand. How can I be the same person I’ve always been – the same person you fell in love with… but suddenly there’s no love there anymore?
If I didn’t do anything wrong, if there’s nothing ‘wrong’ with me then why did you stop loving me? There’s never an answer for it… there’s no explanation… no reasoning… just ‘everything’ one day and ‘nothing’ the next. Don’t you know that’s what hurts so much…. to be someone’s everything and suddenly mean nothing to them… To feel like you have everything one moment; love, happiness, purpose… and then have nothing left in what feels like the blink of an eye.
Where did your love go?
If something exists it can’t just disappear – so where did it go? Where can I find it?
…And how can I get it back?

Summary: On a whim, Bucky declares you to be his girlfriend to his grandma and mother. They’re eager to meet you and he asks you to pretend to be with him for just one dinner with his family. But is that really all?

A/N: This is sheer K-Drama content lol. So it’s gonna be fluffy and full of craziness. I hope you all like it!

Kicking his shoes off, Bucky plops down on the couch, swinging his feet until his legs are off the floor and he crosses them. Taking a deep breath, he stretches enough to pull his phone out of his pocket and unlocks it, perusing through his various social media apps. He’s scrolling through the wedding pictures of a former high school classmate of his when he hears a sharp whistle.

His grandmother’s stern face is what he sees as his head snaps towards the sound. She’s got her lips pursed in a tight line and her brow furrowed. Bucky smiles. “Hey, nana. You look beautiful today.”

reasons why haggar is a lesbian

made by me, a certified lesbian

• she’s the most powerful villain/person in the show
     • like seriously no one has anything on her
     • and lesbians/gay people are always more powerful than straight people

• no one fucking…listens to her
     • which is relatable so i mean…

• the only time she smiles around a man is when she’s torturing him
     • do i even need to explain this

• she’s magical and magic is gay
     • proof: have you ever read a fantasy book because holy shit even if the obviously        gay characters end up being straight (looking at you sarah j. maas) they’re still            pretty fuckign gay

• what straight girl dresses like this:

conclusion: haggar is a lesbian

We had fun right? I mean I laughed every day with, or at you and I know you did the same. We would spend our days apart but messages from you made me feel less alone. 

You kept it light hearted, almost as if you knew that I needed the break from my own thoughts. Our ending wasn’t your finest hour, although maybe it was who you were but I was having such a good time that I let myself suppress caution.

You are a possessive person, I know this now. But what I should have told you from the start is that I was never yours to possess. 

Sometimes I miss the conversations we used to have. Sometimes I miss how you only knew me on the surface, how I didn’t have to explain why you don’t have to worry about me. 

Cutting contact from you was hard, because you had become a constant. But it was the right thing to do, before it was taken to a place where I couldn’t look back on our time together and smile despite the ending.

—  To a former flame, I am not sorry that we burnt out. Although, sometimes I wish I had of watched us burn a little longer.
Rapunzel just became the first Disney Princess to do this, and it’s a big deal

You know how the Disney fairy tale goes: Boy meets girl, one of them happens to be royalty, there’s a bad guy to be fought, the hero wins, and everyone lives happily ever after — yay!

That’s been the norm since the very, very beginning of Disney Princesses. Each princess — whether in their “main” movie, or one of their straight-to-VHS movies — has always, eventually, gotten married to their respective prince*, and then lived happily ever after. Except for Rapunzel.

Rapunzel just became the first Disney princess to straight-up reject a marriage proposal.

Friday night, Disney Channel premiered their latest Disney Channel Original Movie, Tangled: Before Ever After. The movie set up the story for the new Disney Channel show, Tangled: The Series. The series is a sequel to the movie Tangled, but a prequel to the Tangled short, Tangled Ever After. GOT THAT? (Also, spoilers ahead for everything Tangled.)

So while, yes, we already know that somewhere down the road Rapunzel and Flynn Rider Eugene Fitzherbert get married and live happily ever after, it was not smooth sailing for them.

During Tangled: Before Ever After, Eugene decides he wants to propose to Rapunzel, and does so in front of the whole royal court. Instead of saying yes, Rapunzel says no.

Disney Channel

TBH, didn’t realize Disney Princesses could say no to marriage proposals, because we’ve never seen it happen before. This is kinda a big deal. We’re used to seeing this when it comes to the end of Disney movies:


We’ve never seen a princess hightail it away from a suitor, just leaving him hanging there, diamond ring still in hand.

Disney Channel

Later on in the movie, Rapunzel (now with her magical hair again — it’s a long story) explains to Eugene that she is not ready to be tied down yet (!!), and he apologizes to her for putting her on the spot with the proposal in front of everyone (!!!).

“I don’t quite understand why you said no, but I promise to do everything I can until I do,” Eugene tells her. Honestly, this is groundbreaking because we have never seen a Disney Princess go through relationship troubles before. Disney Princesses are JUST LIKE US!

Disney Channel

It’s clear that Rapunzel and Flynn are not done, and are not breaking up. However, she just asks that they table the marriage proposal for the time being, and asks Eugene to “please…be patient with me.” (It is worth pointing out at this point that Rapunzel spent the first 18 years of her life locked up in a tower, and has only now just reentered the real world and is still getting used to everything. Girl still isn’t even wearing shoes. So yeah, rushing into a marriage is not the best idea ever.)

As Disney princesses continue to evolve and change over time, Rapunzel just became the latest one to break the mold we’re so used to. While she’s certainly got that ~fairy tale~ love, for her, it’s not coming easy. Relationships are hard work, and it’s not just riding away into the sunset in  a horse-drawn carriage with a man you just met.

Blondie, take as much time as you need to figure out what YOU want in life, and if marrying Eugene is part of it, then we’re so happy for you two. But if you’d much rather scale the city’s walls and run as far away as possible, that is perfectly fine, too. Go figure out what you want for your next new dream — no relationship pressure, whatsoever.

Aliens watching out for their humans

So most of the stories I’ve seen in the Humans-Are-Weird/Space-Australia/Space-Orcs have had aliens being completely accepting and mostly one human explaining things.

So what would happen when the alien crew who loved their human and easily accepted that their brain didn’t always work right encountered as absolute asshole?

“Human Katyleen, I do not understand why you are upset about Human Sarah traveling with our crew?”

“Because psychos like her should be locked up Galthor! God first it’s rude to call them nutjobs when they are now they get to take the spots that people like me deserve!”

“Do you have the ability to lift a Bilibithor above your head?”

“No but-”

“Ah! You must be able to out-talk a Fiffifin then!”

“They use so many alliterations it makes no sense!”

“Are you able to correctly change speeds to prevent a hyper speed collision that is, the earth term is inches correct?”

“She is still a psycho! She could snap at any time and kill you all!”

“I believe Human Sarah told us about your kind.”

“What did she say?”

“I believe the terms used is cunt.”

i wish it were easy to describe what depression feels like. i wish i could explain why i do things like lay in the dark under a blanket it. it’s too hot under the blanket but too cold outside of it. i don’t do anything about it. netflix is prompting me to press the “i’m still here” button but i haven’t worked up the energy to do it. it’s kind of ironic because sometimes with depression it feels like you’re not here or there or anywhere at all. sometimes you lay under a blanket where it’s too hot with tears running down your face. you’re not crying though, you don’t know why you’ve got tears. you’re tired, you’re bored. you’ve got your phone in your hand but refreshing the same apps over and over isn’t enough to distract you. you want to do something to get out of your head but nothing will help. you’ll still be bored. you’ll still be depressed. you just want to close your eyes and go to sleep forever. i wish it were easy to explain why i feel like this but it’s not. any explanation of what i do or how i feel is never as easy as it seems. i’m not laying in the dark doing nothing and listening to my ears ring because i want to. i want to do other things. i want to get up. fuck, i just want to have the willpower enough to watch the next episode but i don’t. i just… don’t.

  • Pansy: I think Draco is in love...
  • Blaise: Nope. can't be.
  • Pansy: What makes you so sure?
  • Blaise: Because he's a Malfoy.
  • Pansy: and that means what? that he can't have feelings?
  • Blaise: No, Malfoys have hearts of granite. They can kick puppies, torture kittens, and have a good night's sleep afterwards. They do not care about anything, and they most certainly do not fall in love with anything or anyone!
  • Pansy: Then explain why he's slobbering all over Granger?
  • Blaise: He's.... He's...
  • Pansy: You're just mad that he's got less time for you right?

What she says: I’m fine

What she means: In Deaf West Spring Awakening they made a lot of very unique blocking and choreography choices that almost all had a deeper meaning to them that really increased the characters depth. Some of them have been explained by the cast but some have not been addressed and I am literally dying because I want to know exactly why they decided to do everything. A small example is why they decided to have Ernsts voice ride a bike around Hanschen during My Junk. But the one that intrigues me the most is that during The Dark I Know Well when all of the girls are on one side, sort of portraying the victims, and the boys are on the other sort of portraying the father or potential assaulters, Ernst runs over from the boys to the side of the girls and starts signing with them but he is still sort of separated from them by being on the stairs and I want to know what they meant by that. I have many theories but I would really like to know what their original intentions were.

Here we go again..................

That MTV interview with the photographer was a well written piece of propaganda for “Bare with me”, basically saying that love is love, and it is beautiful in all forms. The stuff about Lauren and Lucy was all propaganda to prop up the narrative.

The photographer and the wardrobe lady were only saying what they were advised to say. LIES! (though the wardrobe lady decided to fuck the narrative a bit with the “sisterly and maternal connection”) Management did the same thing with DWTS. Val was advised to lie about when and where he had his first meet up with Normani for DWTS. They had been rehearsing for days before that Houston Rodeo, yet they wanted to push the narrative to the general public that the girls were in on the surprise, and helped introduce Mani to her dance partner. Why? To show how much they support her decision to do her own thing.

My point is, they (management) have no problem getting outside forces, other than the girls, to help sell their narrative. The ladies who did that photo-shoot with Lauren and Lucy are no different. Why have the photographer say what she said? They needed someone, other than Lauren or Lucy, to confirm that Laucy was real, to prove that Camren wasn’t. That one interview killed three birds with one stone. It confirmed Laucy, destroyed Camren, then destroyed Laucy, all at the same damn time. Brilliant actually.

being in the marauders fandom is such an #experience because you have to explain to people that you have an acute interest in harry potter’s dead parents and their friends while trying not to look like an idiot who set themselves up. because, again, you knew they would die so why would you even do that to yourself?? like, how did i think it was a good idea to look at the hundreds of characters in the harry potter fandom, set my eyes dead (ha!) on james and lily potter, and go
