World Enough and Time + Disability Representation

Warning: Spoilers

I expected World Enough an Time to be an amazing episode because, hey, two Masters and Mondasian Cybermen.  I did not expect this episode to be amazing because of disability representation, but it was.  In fact, I might call this episode one of my favorites, not because of the story, but because it was the first time I have seen myself onscreen.

I don’t talk about my disabilities on this blog since my main blog @spoonieswimmer is my platform for that.  I am chronically ill.  I am disabled.  I have been sick for four and a half years.  My illness was actually what got me into fandom in the first place, and it effects every second of my life.  In all that time, tonight was the first time seeing someone like me on screen.  And the character is the co-star on Doctor Who, my absolute favorite show.

Now don’t get me wrong.  Disability representation has been getting better.  (Class, anyone?)  In the past two seasons of Doctor Who, we have had 2 disabled characters.  (3, counting World Enough and Time.)  That’s great, but still a little weak.  And, disability is not one size fits all.  As a person with an invisible illness, my life is very different from someone who is D/deaf.  So, tonight was not the first time I have seen disability on tv, but it was the first time I have seen someone with a disability like mine.

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I am talking about Bill Potts.  Up until this episode, Bill was not disabled.  I am not even sure she was written to be disabled in this episode, but that does not change the fact that she is disabled.  In the absolute broadest terms, a disability is a condition that causes limitations in a person’s life.  Now, it is actually much more complex than this, but Bill’s fake heart definitely posed limitations on her.

I’m going to break down aspects of the episode and how they relate to me as a disabled person.  We’ll start with some superficial comparisons between Bill and myself and get deeper as we go.

  • Bill has a large device (her artificial heart) sticking out of her chest.  This is what keeps her alive.
    • I have a device implanted under the skin of my chest called a portacath.  A thin tube connects this device to my aorta and the tube ends just above my heart.  Every week, I have a needle inserted through my skin into the port and it can be used to deliver lifesaving medication.  Although my port is much smaller than Bill’s heart, it is still noticeable and uncomfortable.
  • Bill spent a significant portion of the episode dragging around an IV pole.
    • As part of my treatment, I get IVs done twice a week, though it used to be daily.  I spend six to ten hours a week hooked up to an IV, and, let me tell you, those things are really hard to drag around.  I actually spend most of my time watching Doctor Who while the bag drips.
  • At one point in the episode, Bill sat down into a wheelchair.  She could still walk, but it was on hand, which means she was likely a part-time wheelchair user.
    • Mobility devices are part of my life.  I have used a cane for some time, and lately I have been thinking of getting a wheelchair for part-time use.  I can walk, but it is painful and takes a lot of strength and energy that I don’t often have.
  • Bill cannot leave the hospital or her heart stops working.
    • Due to my disabilities, I am effectively housebound.  I leave my house about once a week, and get extremely sick every time I do.  I have had to quit school, sports, and all social activities because of it.
  • Bill has one friend for her entire stay in the hospital.  
    • It is very alienating to have a disability.  This is not only because it takes so much energy to go out and often you aren’t able to, but it is extremely hard to make and keep friends when your lives are so different.  
  • Bill’s one friend betrays her.
    • When you get sick, you quickly learn that friends don’t stick around.  Once they realize you won’t get better, they slowly stop talking to you one by one.  Four and a half years later, I have no friends left.  I thought that they were true friends, but they betrayed me, just like Bill was betrayed.
  • Bill spends the entire episode waiting for the Doctor.
    • When you are disabled, you spend a lot of time hoping, praying, and waiting for someone to help you.
  • Bill gets turned into a Cyberman.
    • Help does not come fast enough for the disabled.

I’ve cried over this episode.  I have spent a long time writing this, and I still have not managed to convey how important it is to me.  How important it is to have representation.  I could probably spend days pointing out metaphors for disability in this episode, and I sincerely hope that this is not the only time I will ever see myself on screen.  Representation is so important for every minority, but please, please, do not leave the disabled out of your activism.

  • He paced around the living room taking deep breaths to calm himself before planting a smile on his face and returning to you, he wanted to be strong for you
    • “The doctor is on the way. I’m going to get you a glass of water and you have to drink it all, okay babe?”
  • It seemed like forever until he arrived
  • You described your symptoms and he took a good look over you
    • “Yes, these things are to be expected with the loss of a pregnancy early on…Make sure she relaxes for a while and call me if you need anything else.”
  • Zen couldn’t find the words to say
  • He felt so powerless in that moment
  • He got so excited when you both found out that he posted a selfie of you two with the pregnancy test
  • He felt this guilt in his chest, maybe if he hadn’t been working so much…
    • “I’m…so sorry, Zen” you cried
    • “Hey hey hey, cut that out,” he wiped your tears, “everything is going to be okay. I’m here with you…”
  • He let the director know he would be taking a few days off and pretty soon word got out to his fans about what happened
  • Gifts, chocolates, flowers, and sympathy cards all came pouring in
  • You got a lot of letters from fans that had also lost babies, and reading them together at night really helped you get through it
  • Jumin sent over a maid and chef to take care of things for a while, and although Zen grumbled about it to you, he was thankful
        • -After-

  • This time around he did his best to stay home more, as much as you tried to tell him it wasn’t necessary and you were fine
  • It’s a girl!

    • “You’re the most beautiful child to ever grace this planet. You’re not allowed to date until you’re 45. Don’t worry, daddy will protect you from those beastly boys!”

◉ Jaehee

  • It had only been five weeks since you found out the pregnancy took
  • You were feeling kind of odd and excused yourself to the bathroom
  • When you came out, face red and sobbing Jaehee rushed to your side
    • “MC! What’s going on??”
    • “It didn’t stick…we’re losing it…God, I’m so sorry…I don’t know what I did wrong I-”
  • She cut you off and grabbed your face in her hands

    • “Stop snooping through the cabinets before someone comes in and sees you!”
  • He had stolen a wooden tongue depressor and put it in his mouth
  • And was now grabbing gloves and putting them on too
    • “Excuse me ma’am I’m doctor cotton swab please spread your legs for me I need to inspect you. Stop laughing, that’s very unprofessional. I didn’t go to medical school for this!”
  • The knock on the door interrupted you and he jumped to your side as the doctor walked in
  • Trying to pull the gloves off before he saw
    • “Good evening you two,” he didn’t glance up from his paperwork, “Mrs. Choi, I’m a little concerned about some declining levels I see from your test…”
    • “What does that mean?” Saeyoung had a lump in his throat and he grabbed your hand
  • The smiles had faded from your faces
    • “Let’s just check one thing here before I go any further”

  • A lot

◉ V

  • You had some intense cramps and V could tell you weren’t feeling well
  • He was pleading with you to take you in and be seen
  • It wasn’t until it hurt so bad that you stumbled (almost passing out) and grabbed onto him that he wouldn’t take no for an answer anymore and had someone drive you both to the hospital
  • It was hard for him to even get the words out to the doctor
    • “I think my wife is…having a miscarriage” his voice wavering
  • He didn’t let go of your hands the whole time the doctor was talking to you
  • He wished so badly that he could see your face
  • When the sound of your soft cries hit him he brushed your hair to the side lovingly and let go of his own sadness welling inside of him
  • V was so gentle with you when you got home
  • You both kissed each other and wiped each others tears away
  • And fell asleep in each others arms
  • The next day you didn’t want to sit still
    • “Are you sure you’re feeling up to this?”
    • “I’m sure. I don’t want to be cooped up right now… Let’s pack some food and go to our spot.”
  • It was a place you both frequented, a beach
  • V couldn’t see the sunset anymore but the sound of the water and the fresh air was therapeutic for both of you
  • You didn’t want to cry anymore and you both just cuddled and sat together quietly
        • -After-
  • Kissed you so many times when you finally told him you were going to have a baby
  • It’s a girl!
  • He was so nervous about being a new dad and being blind but he quickly adjusted
  • Has supersonic hearing, like, if the baby yawns from across the house he freaks out and runs to her
  • Jumin is constantly over playing with the baby and buying her ridiculously frilly outfits that you and V thank him for but stick in the closet never to be seen again

◉ Saeran

  • You were hurting the night before, and he pulled you into bed and held you close, hoping you would just sleep it off and be better in the morning
  • When you woke up you felt a wetness and sat up to reveal blood
  • Saeran freaked out and immediately began inspecting you
    • “Are you hurting bad?? Oh God, MC.”
  • You shook your head no, you weren’t hurting much anymore…
  • And that thought made you break down in sobs
  • You knew what had happened now
    • “Don’t move, I’m calling the doctor”
  • He was frantic and his hands were shaking
  • When he finally got a hold of him on the phone and explained what had happened, he was furious at the nonchalant tone he had
    • “I’m very sorry but there’s nothing we can really do at this point. There’s no reason to bring your wife in at this point. You just have to let these things run their course and call me if she starts to feel her pain worsening.”
  • He almost threw his phone against the wall and shattered it
  • That’s what he wanted to do
  • But you were more important than his anger right now
  • He found you back in the bedroom trying to clean the sheets while crying
    • “Stop stop stop…I’ll take care of that. Let’s get you cleaned up…”
  • He kissed your head and drew a bath for you
  • Letting you soak while he worked in the bedroom
  • The sound of your crying was like a knife in his heart and he allowed himself to silently sob while he cleaned up everything
  • You both were a melancholy mess and couldn’t even bring yourself to tell anyone
  • You spent the whole rest of the day and night laying with each other, both of your hands rubbing your stomach together
        • -After-
  • He still couldn’t fight that feeling in his chest when you said you were pregnant again
  • He felt at any moment it would be taken from him again
  • It wasn’t until he felt that first kick that he cried and kissed your tummy with joy
  • It’s a boy!
  • He won’t let the baby sleep in the bassinet you bought, he sleeps with the baby always
  • Loves when he has the baby and you both snuggled up with him, you both are his whole world
  • Secretly has the picture of that first ultra-sound still in his wallet, and looks at it often, wondering what it would be like to have both of his children alive in that moment
  • Makes Saeyoung use gobs of hand sanitizer before he comes near your child
No Sleep Till Brooklyn, part 10

Heartmate Series: Steve Rogers x Reader

Characters: Steve Rogers, Deadpool, Falcon, Daredevil

Warnings: language, violence, NSFW, a little smut - Deadpool’s in it guys, it ain’t PG.

A/N: This is my take on the soulmate trope. It’s not necessarily an AU, because technically heartmate is canon in the Marvel world - at least with Wade’s comics.

Summary: You’re a mutant turned mercenary, working with the best merc around - Wade Fucking Wilson aka Deadpool. You are also someone who doesn’t believe in the whole heartmate crap. How could two people solely be made for each other? Steve Rogers is Captain America,  Avenger extraordinaire. Call him old fashion, but he believed in heartmates and knew he had one out there. The two of you cross paths one day and things get set in motion. Can Steve get passed the jaded wall you built or would things just crash and burn? And will Wade Wilson finally learn to put the seat down after taking a piss? Who knows.

I can’t believe you both stepped in that puddle at the same time…” you trailed off, laughing about it now but still shaken by the sight of Sam and Clint motionless outside the HYDRA compound.

Sam smirked, “Well, I guess it’s lucky we have a walking defibrillator with us at all times, eh, Y/N?”

You had sent small electric shocks to both of their hearts to get them beating again. “Yeah, lucky I took pity on you instead of letting you die of your own stupidity,” you said with an affectionate smile.

A laugh erupted around the dinner table as the team finished eating. Bucky caught your eye and sent you a smile, which you returned. The former-Winter Soldier was one of your best friends and you were grateful to have him. The whole team, in fact. The past few years had been rough for you so finding the Avengers and being asked to join was a Godsend.

anonymous asked:

Hello Batwynn! Um I was wondering if you had any tips or tricks to help fight an upset stomach after a severe panic attack? B/c after a severe one, my stomach feels like it's one giant knot and I can't eat despite being hungry or having my favorite food in front of me. I might as well be looking at a pile of trash, I get nausea :( got any advice? Thank you and take care <3

Hi there anon, i’m sorry to hear about your trouble with nausea after a panic attack. I know exactly what you mean, especially when you feel hungry and you simply can’t stomach food.

First thing’s first, if you have the type of anti anxiety medication you take when needed, be sure to take that as soon as you can and take some small sips of water. [An empty stomach is more likely to cramp with medication is introduced.] 

The first I usually do when i’m hit with panic-attack-nausea is try to either find a cool place to rest, splash my face with cold water, or place a cold paper towel/towel against the back of my neck. This helps easing those overheating and nausea signals going bzzt around your body. 

After that, though, I know the nausea can linger for a while, and the tension from the panic attack can make it very hard to eat afterwards. So, I would suggest stretching your abdomen/torso out with a few stretches like this:

Your abdominal muscles will thank you, and you will also help your breathing.

But, that’s not all! I would also suggest a heat pack/ hot water bottle for your stomach area to try to ease the muscle tension. These are fantastic for IBS, or stress related cramps and nausea, and I highly recommend it for easing stress even without nausea present. [ Warning: Sometimes heat can make nausea worse for some people. Personally, the hotter I get, the sicker I feel. So, when using heat, it’s good to test your limits gently. Try leaving the heat on for several minutes at a time, and taking it off again, and never apply any heating device directly to your skin!] 


 @apocatits adds that a nice hot bath always helps her [ Again, it’s always good to know your limits. I’ve known people who faint when having hot baths, especially after panic attacks.]  She also suggests elevating your legs. [Which is good to do after a panic attack anyway, with your blood pressure and all that.] 

My mother says that music tends to help her. Peaceful, soothing music, or music that makes you move/dance/wiggle, or even music that makes you cry. Music that gets you to the next moment, and out of that headspace. 

And, if you really can’t ease the nausea on your own, I might suggest anti-nausea medications as well. [Always check drug interactions, and check with your doctor before taking anything you aren’t used to. Tums or Ranitidine is good lower stomach acid. Pepto Bismol chewable tablets ease bloating, nausea, heartburn, diarrhea.] 

Lastly, when you do eat, I suggest trying simple foods like soup first and foremost. Start with small sips/bites, and see how it goes. :) Good luck, and I hope this helped!

A lesson in frustration Pt 3

They made it to the docks and agreed they would pair up and take it in turns to patrol around the area every hour. Meanwhile, they cleared a small area behind some wooden pallets and boxes, so they could watch without being scene. Jace and Clary took first patrol, leaving Alec at the mercy of his sister. She had a bad habit of looking at him every few minutes and smiling. It wasn’t helping his mood at all. He had spoken to Izzy about his personal life before and when she wasn’t being a pain in his ass she actually gave pretty good advice. Seeing as Jace wasn’t around and the unanswered question he had asked him earlier was eating at him, Alec decided to risk the ribbing he would probably get and ask her about it.“Do you remember when we were in the briefing and I asked Jace about…er..you know, and you jumped in and told him what I was talking about………..” he stumbled, shuffling his feet and looking at the ground. Izzy wanted so much to laugh at her big brother but she realised that this was a big deal for him and actually having the guts to ask her about it showed how much it was bothering him.“About if it’s normal to want to have sex all the time? Yeah I remember.” She walked over to him and laid her hand affectionately on his arm.“Yes, Alec it’s normal. Especially when you’ve repressed your feelings for so long, like you have.”“Yeah but Izzy, it’s just always there in my mind. It’s all I can think about. I….. it’s just……..I love him so much Iz, it scares me, you know?” Isabelle Lightwood hardly ever cried. She couldn’t remember when the last time was but hearing her goofy big brother talking about his boyfriend and saying that he loved him got to her like nothing else had. She grabbed him around his waist, squeezing hard. It took Alec by surprise for a minutes and then he hugged her back. She pulled away from him a few minutes later, staring up at him, smiling. More shocking were seeing the tears in her eyes.“Alec, I’m so happy for you, for both of you. You deserve all the happiness in the world. Magnus must be doing all the right things if he’s all you can think about. Just relax and enjoy it, it doesn’t happen for everyone so be grateful. Don’t overthink it, just go with it. Talk to Magnus about it. He’ll understand.” He bent his long frame and put a small peck on Izzy’s cheek.“Thanks Sis, when you’re not giving me a hard time, you can be pretty good sometimes”Izzy laughed. Alec’ phone began to buzz just as Jace and Clary came back. Alec walked a little away from the group when he saw it was Magnus.“Hey, Babe, what’s up?” the other end of the phone was full of dirty chuckling. Magnus Bane, 400 years old and still acted like a kid sometimes. He loved it.“I could ask you the same thing, my love. What are you doing?”“We’re at the Jade Wolf, on the look out for demons but so far it’s pretty quiet. What are you doing?”“Oh just puttering around the lair, trying not to think about what my sexy Shadowhunter boyfriend looks like naked” Alec swallowed hard, feeling the front of his jeans getting tight again. There was something about the soft warm tones to Magnus’ voice that really got to him. Alec was sure he could sit and read the New York Phone Directory to him and he’d get turned on. He knew he was grinning like a Cheshire cat but he just couldn’t help it. He took a quick look around and spotted the others all standing there making exaggerated kissy faces and goofy grins at him. He tried his best to glare at them but it didn’t work and he ended up blushing furiously instead.“so, are you still out there running around the docks half cocked?” Magnus asked. Alec could hear the laughter in his voice. He was glad he found this amusing.“Yeah, this is getting to be not funny anymore. It like a medical condition. I don’t know how I’m going to make it till tonight.”Magnus gave a soft laugh. “me too my darling, me too. I better let you get back to work, you don’t want to cock things up while looking for demons” now he was Magnus Bane, comedian.“Yeah yeah, just you wait till tonight, you’re going to be sorry you teased me about this”“Oh, Alexander, is that a threat or a promise? The latter I hope. See you soon, beautiful boy and by the way I sent you a photo. Food for thought. I love you Alexander Lightwood”“I love you too Magnus Bane, talk soon.” Alec stood staring at the screen of his phone for a few minutes after it went black again, grinning like an idiot. He looked over to the others who were all standing there pretending to wipe tears from their faces and waving goodbye.He ignored them and went into his messages to see what Magnus had sent him. He was walking back over to the others as he did it but the second the image appeared on the screen, he stopped dead in his tracks.Magnus was lying on their bed, the room darkened and candles glowing all around. White rose petals were scattered over the red satin sheets and Magnus Bane high warlock of Brooklyn was lying in the middle of the bed, stark naked, his demon mark cat’s eyes glowing back at the camera. One hand was held up, the magical blue flame rising from it. His other hand was gripping his fully erect length. Alec thought his legs were going to give out. His crotch just go extremely uncomfortable and he tried to adjust himself, discreetly.All of a sudden, Jace gave a yell and Alec looked up, seeing a large group of demons heading their way. “Alec come on!” he yelled as they all charged at them, weapons at the ready. Alec dropped his phone and flew to be with them, loading an arrow in his bow as he went.10 minutes later, there were a piles of demon ash scattered around the docks. They had fought well and come out on top. The members of Luke’s werewolf pack had come out to lend a hand but it had been unnecessary. After catching their breaths and going back to sit down behind the pallets, Izzy said that she would contact the Institute and let them know what had just happened. She patted down her pockets in her gear but couldn’t find her phone. She spied Alec’ where he had left it on an old box and grabbed it to make the call.Alec was sitting with Jace and Clary discussing the fight when they heard Izzy give a loud shriek. Everyone flew to their feet, looking around to see what she had been yelling about.“Izzy, where are they? Where are the demons?” Jace yelled racing over to her, Clary and Alec hot on his tail. Izzy had her hand over her mouth and dropped the phone back on the box. She was dancing around shaking her hands like the device had burnt her skin. She rubbed her eyes and all they could hear her saying was “ewwww! ewwwww!” “what the matter, you didn’t get demon ichor on you did you?” Alec was grabbing her hands and inspecting them for any damage. “no, by the angel no! oh God, I’m gonna die” she was half laughing half wincing, looking over towards the boxes near them.“well then what…….” Alec started to say before he followed her gaze and saw his phone sitting on the box. Alec blanched and instantly felt sick. Oh God, Magnus’ photo. Before he could reach it Jace had grabbed it and pushed the screen. Alec prayed for an earthquake to hit below his feet and swallow him up. Jace stared at the screen, eyes wide making strange choking noises. Clary peered over his shoulder, and squealed, looking the other way fast.“Alec, dude, that’s impressive man, no wonder you look like your smuggling a seraph dagger down your jeans. Izzy may need therapy now but she’ll get over it” he couldn’t stop smiling at Alec who had gone from very white to bright red. Jace threw the phone over to him, just standing there nodding his head in a suggestive manner, eyebrows going up and down. Alec gave him a filthy look. Why in the name of God hadn’t he gotten rid of that photo sooner? When Jace had recovered enough, he finally looked up at his brother. Alec looked absolutely miserable. He walked over to him and put a hand on his back.“Hey, don’t sweat it man, it’s all good. I’m really glad that you’ve finally found someone to love and who obviously loves you back.  Izzy and Clary may never look at Magnus quite the same way again, but hey that’s life” Alec looked at Jace and seeing that he truly meant what he had said, felt himself relax.“I’m gonna kill Magnus for sending me that” Alec told him.“As long as you use the weapon he had in his hand, I don’t think he’d care” The rest of their time passed quickly after that. The demons seemed to of given up and they sat around behind their pallets and boxes laughing and joking with each other, most of the discussion seemed to centre on Maryse and her night on the cocktails. By late afternoon, they headed back to the Institute. Alec had managed to feel less edgy  for the rest of the day, enjoying the company of his family. Just as they mounted the steps, his phone buzzed and he almost didn’t see who it was,  afraid of another one of Magnus’s centrefold pictures.  He was relieved to see that even though it was from him, it was only a text this time.Hey beautiful boy, only a couple of more hours to go, looking forward to it xxoo.He knew he was grinning like an idiot but he couldn’t seem to help it. Of course, Izzy had to see him and came up to him, giving him a suggestive nudge.“More dickpics, hey bro?” He frowned at her.“No, Izzy just a text. Not that it’s any of your business” he put his bow and quiver back in the weapons store.“Hey, you made it my business. Leaving that on your phone.”“get your own then”“I have my own, I just forgot it. Won’t make that mistake again, however”“Hey, how about you and Jace and Clary come back to the loft with Mum and I tonight and we can have dinner together before she goes back?”“think you can keep your hands off your warlock man candy for that long?” she asked, grinning.“Very funny, yes. Believe me, after what happened yesterday, that won’t be a problem”The others agreed to it as well and after meeting back up with Maryse, they left for the loft. Magnus had been frantically getting things ready all afternoon for Alec’ arrival. He had spread more of the rose petals from the front door to the bedroom and covered the loft in candles. He clicked his fingers, conjuring his blue flame and waving it over himself, replaced his clothes with a deep blue satin robe. He tied the sash around his waist loosely so that all it would take to undo it was a quick tug. He had to admit to himself that he was surprised by how excited he was to be with Alec. In all the centuries he had been alive, no one had ever had the same effect on him. He was truly special. As he glanced around the room, making sure everything was perfect for his arrival, he realised with a smile that he could officially say that he was in love, deeply so. He had put a ward up near the elevator door so that it would alert him to Alec’ imminent arrival and just at that second, he sensed its breach. Magnus, headed for the door, standing just inside the entrance way. He heard Alec’ key in the lock and the second he saw the door start to swing open, Magnus grabbed the robe sash and gave it a tug. The robe fell open leaving a wide gap, showing a generous amount of his well-toned body from head to toe. A soft sexy smile on his lips. He’d been waiting for this all day.The door opened fully and Alec started coming in but stopped abruptly when he saw Magnus. Eyes going wide.“Welcome home my love, I’ve missed you” Suddenly Magnus heard another voice and Jace appeared from behind Alec’ frozen form. “Ha! Good God! Not again!” he yelled and started going back the way he came in, herding the others back into the hall way. Magnus looked like a deer caught in the headlights of a car. He was frozen to the spot like Alec but managed to grab the two sides of the robe together, pulling it closed.“Magnus! What the heck………………….” Alec finally broke out of his shocked stupor.“I thought your mother was leaving from the Institute, not coming back here. I wanted to give you a special home coming. And why are the others here?”“she doesn’t have to go back till after dinner, I thought you knew that. I invited the others cause I thought we could all have dinner together before she left.”“next time you make plans with the other, Alexander, could you please give me a call first so we can avoid situations like this” Magnus looked back at him, his face slowly starting to regain its colour. Alec looked at his feet, feeling bad that he hadn’t thought to do that. He heard Magnus sigh and come out to him, wrapping his arms around his waist.“hey, don’t worry. It’s all good. No harm done, well, not much, anyway. I can always perform a memory wipe on young Mr Wayland.”“ Yes please!” called a voice from the hall way. They looked at each other and gave a small laugh. “you looked hot, by the way” Alec, said softly resting his forehead to Magnus.“I’m glad you think so. I was thinking of adding a bow earlier but I’m glad I didn’t now” “so am I” Alec smiled and put his lips to Magnus’s. As it always seemed to do, their kiss started to take off but Magnus pulled away, reaching up to put the tip of one ringed finger to his lips.“Can we continue this later, I think we have guests waiting for us” he said quietly.“we sure can and Magnus?”“yes, my love?”“can you add the bow?”  

Making Infant Circumcision Even Better

There is no better way to welcome a baby boy into this world than strapping him down, tearing his foreskin from his glans before amputating it, and then sending him home with his sore, burning, raw glans to chafe against his diapers.

The downside? He won’t remember it, and may grow up unaware that this even happened to him.

For this reason all infant circumcisions should be audio/videotaped; it would make a perfect coming-of-age gift.

mellowblizzardbasement recently wrote me about this: “I feel like a circumcised penis is crippled and enslaved with the circ scar as its collar. And yes it hurts like a bitch having it done. Anyone who says otherwise is lying.”

He is not speaking entirely metaphorically when he calls the circ scar a collar: “the circ scar is a collar or chastity device, and the tight skin is like a leash. One of my friends, a very procirc mom, told me she thinks of it that way. Her sons and DH wear the chastity device and she is very happy. Her DH takes forever to cum sometimes, so it works!”

This wonderful mother has helped to solve the problem of boys not remembering their circumcision. She made the oldest of her two sons acutely aware of what happened to him: “one is 5, the other is 16 or 17. The oldest one knows he is circumcised. She had him present at the first diaper change after his younger brother  was circ’d to see his bandaged penis and knows he went through it too. She said he was erect, she could tell.”

anonymous asked:

How do you feel about skin care devices. Like the clarisonic, foreo, or even vanity planet spin brush? Are they harmful to the skin or do they actually clean like they claim?

Clarisonic and Vanity Planet? Bad. See the previous ask.

Foreo? Great! Hardly any exfoliation; instead uses sonic technology.

There’s some really cool skin care devices out there (none of which I can afford), but spin brushes in general are a miss.

Episode 53 - The September Monologues

Cecil: The wind out of the desert is changing. I feel it. You feel it. A shiver in the midday heat. A crackle in the television broadcast. A shift in your immune system.

It is September, and something is different.

It is September, and the days have gone sinister – from first eye’s open to last slow breathing.

It is September, and so, listeners – dear listeners – Night Vale Public Radio is proud to introduce The September Monologues.

“This is just your tracker, Katniss. The stiller you are, the more efficiently I can place it,” she says.

Still? I’m a statue. But that doesn’t prevent me from feeling the sharp stab of pain as the needle inserts the metal tracking device deep under the skin on the inside of my forearm. Now the Gamemakers will always be able to trace my whereabouts in the arena. Wouldn’t want to lose a tribute.

Warning: Torture (at the end)

“You’re quite complex,” A familiar voice says behind me, pausing to purr in my ear. “(Y/N) Wayne.”

I lock the jewels I’ve stolen earlier that night in a secret box. “How’d you find me,” I turn around quickly to face him, “Joker.”
