I remember reading a fic where Dan (or Phil, but I'm p sure it was Dan) had rosacea? And I remember that it said that he was diagnosed almost immediately or something like that. Thank you!
The Boy with Scarlet Cheeks - Dan has rosacea, a medical condition causing his cheeks to appear red and flushed, and he’s meeting Phil for the first time. The genre is mostly fluff but there’s a couple of self deprecating thoughts.
“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, To console those who mourn in Zion, To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”
comfort zone: A place, a group, a career that they know they’re good at. A place where there is admiration and even a place or person they dominate.
comfort zone: A predictable place with little conflict. People are steady and familiar, acts are repetitive.
comfort zone: They don’t have to focus, there isn’t a lot of pressure, friends might be plentiful, and there’s lots of encouragement around.
comfort zone: A place or people with plenty of security, a place that actually feels comfortable, and lots of sentimental attachments.
comfort zone: Where they can be the big fish in a little pond, there’s stability, they always have resources, and they have the upper hand.
comfort zone: Plenty of routine and safety. They are the most knowledgeable in an area, knows everyone, and they always know what’s coming.
Libra comfort zone: Little conflict or drama, has strong connections with others, has a good reputation, knows their way around, and feels secure.
comfort zone: Has power over environment in some way, no one messes with them, experiences “safe” excitement, and they know everything/no secrets.
comfort zone: Not a lot of pressure or responsibility, little consequence for speaking their mind, a place or person with positive vibes, and there is little criticism.
comfort zone: Has control in some way, a lot of reliability and routine, nothing ever changes, people listen to them, and others bend to their way.
comfort zone: They are a main source of info, everyone knows their name, there is at least one or two people that “get” them, and there is a lot of communication (but let’s be real they gave up that “zone” a long time ago).
comfort zone: Around dependable people, there is a place to escape, lots of comforting energy, and things are familiar in a physical sense.
We all have our comfort zones and at times we all need to step out of them!
Writing things that are self-indulgent is *GOOD* for you. Write self-indulgent stories. Writing stories that are huge and complex and world-shattering is amazing and very fun, but sometimes you just gotta sit there and bang out a trope-riddled mess where you get to kiss a character you find hot.
All I want is comfort. I want to live in a comfortable house with a dog and a cat and the love of my life. I want to make enough money to pay for necessities and have the extra to travel once in awhile with my love. I don’t need extra cash. I just need comfort.
Have hope so deeply rooted in Christ, so that when the world falls apart around you, you can still stand with your feet firmly on the ground. Trust in Jesus with your whole heart, not just part of it. Our hope is in the One who, unlike anyone or anything in this world, will never fail you. What I find to be even more beautiful about hoping and trusting in the Lord, is that when pain and heartache becomes a reality for those around you, they’ll be searching for comfort and peace. You know the One who brings joy and comfort. They will look at your life and wonder why your hope is unwavering, and why you are at such peace in this crazy world. He will use these things to speak to others. Trusting in God comes with so many blessings that affect not only your life, but everyone around you.
Imagine your favorite character is the kind of person who you could go to vent out your feelings and frustrations, they will let you cry on their shoulder, and will hug you and tell you that everything will be ok
