doctor who rules to live by

ok HEAR ME OUT

a one piece summer camp au

shanks is like the MAIN camp counselor who oversees everything. he’s lowkey wild as hell but it’s fine. the kids think hes the second coming of christ
law is the camp doctor who wants to die every time he hears the children’s laughter
ace is the “living on the edge” camp counselor who is quite the influence on the children bc all of them want to be like him whether that means they waterski through hoops of fire or not
sabo is the camp counselor that tries so hard to make sure everyone is following all the rules and such and he has at least 45 conniptions a day bc of ace’s methods of interacting with the campers. sabo is also that one counselor that every little girl seems to love for no explicable reason. maybe it’s the princely look
luffy is the counselor that has no idea what he’s doing. he’s quite an influence like ace is, but his influences cause actual chaos sometimes. luffy doesn’t even know he’s an influence and he also has no filter around the children so sometimes some kids will just walk around cussing and sabo gets more conniptions
sanji is the camp’s chef. he keeps these kids alive. he gets kinda snippy bc these kids just throw food everywhere. rip
zoro is the lazy counselor. he’ll be sleeping against a tree and all of his kids will throw sticks at him and draw on his face while he’s out. when he’s awake and doesn’t feel like doing anything he’ll tell the kids something like “i dont care as long as you dont set the entire place on fire goodnight”
usopp. we all know what kind of counselor usopp is. 
nami just bribes the kids she has to do what she wants them to do tbh. other than that she’s probably the most laid-back counselor this camp will ever see

anonymous asked:

i'm a trans guy, 30s, been fat all my life. i'm desperate for top surgery, but every surgeon says i have to lose weight. exercise with my huge chest is hard enough, but now makes dysphoria worse (it's like my boobs are the reason i can't have my boobs off). since age 7 (not a typo), i've been fatshamed and forced on every diet. these days i exercise reasonably, eat decently. i know i'm never losing the weight, though. i need top surgery more than anything. i don't know what to do anymore.

You shouldn’t have to face these barriers, I’m sorry you are dealing with fat-phobic and transphobic doctors. Your size is not the problem, their ignorance is the problem. And hugs to little seven-year-old you. I have a son, and no vulnerable little boy should ever be treated like you were treated. Your weight was just fine then and its just fine now.

If you search my “trans health” tag you will find a post with resources about top surgery that may help. Yours is, unfortunately, a very common problem.

Long story short is that not all doctors require weight loss before top surgery, but you may need to shop around widely to find someone who is both willing and competent to perform the surgery on fat people. As a rule, surgeons do not receive adequate training performing surgical procedures on fat bodies, and we all pay the price for their lack of knowledge and skill. 

Does anyone else have advice, validation, or lived experiences to share?

So I had a thought this morning, of how Twelve is much more of an unbuttoned Doctor than Eleven, especially Eleven near the end of his time. Like, yeah, Twelve keeps his emotions reined in because he feels everything so strongly but other than that, his personality rocks out. But Eleven kept nearly everything on the inside.

And I kind of feels that it shows in their outfits. Now, I’m no expert like @silvermarmoset in regards to characters and costuming and what not, but it seems to me that Eleven’s clothes got more, well, austere, more buttoned up, and now Twelve’s like, found his equilibrium between Magician and Just-Rolled-Out-Of-Bed, but it’s still…looser? than Eleven’s fashion choices were. 

Like, Twelve still lives by rules but he’s not necessarily as restricted by them that Nine, Ten, and Eleven felt like they were.

anyway, random Doctor Who meta snippet from me today.

Illegitimate - Finn Shelby

Request: Hey. Could you write something where your family tries to make you marry some guy after they found out you are pregnant with Finn’s baby, your mom is all we will tell him the baby’s premature when you refuse she tells you that Finn is some ganster good for nothing that snorts coke all day that you’re just his whore, that your baby’s a bastard etc. In the middle of her speech you leave and find Finn and his family. Something long please with a lot of drama, cute flashbacks maybe, thanks.

Illegitimate - Finn Shelby

You had come home to find your mother in your bedroom. There was an open suitcase on the bed and she was sitting in the chair by the fireplace. You weren’t naïve enough to be confused when you saw her there. Two weeks ago you’d come clean to your family, telling them that you were pregnant.

Jidal, Ceres, and Vega. they’re dragons from my cancelled comic Fire and Stardust. Jidal is only 14 and is much tougher than she looks, she’s a healer / doctor. Ceres and Vega are in their twenties! and they’re lovers ~ Ceres speciality is sewing clothes, armour, tents and creating tools for the group. Vega is a hunter and defender (uhm, she protects the group from human hunters basically, together with some of the dragon boys). just a little insight on them

Leiyana is a space princess. she lives on a water planet, and she’s a key element on winning or not winning a space war. and she does so with breaking the rules and singing to gods (huge whale like creatures), who in return produce energy with their voices… etc etc wow

Morgenstern. she only talks in rhymes. she’s a princess, too, but she’s very calm and not interested in leading or fighting. she has a little brother she loves dearly and would do everything to protect him, though. also she’s totally grabbing her boob in that first drawing, well done past self

Summary: Living in Las Vegas wasn’t ‘ideal’ to most people. Living in Las Vegas with your mate and his drug smuggling, gun dealing, casino owning family and their pack was really not ‘ideal’. But what’s life without a little risk?

Word count: 3,389

Warnings: This will be a very heavy series. I will tag each part appropriately, but expect drug addiction, depression, alcoholism, self harm, anxiety attacks, sexual assault, and extreme violence. The idea is based off of Sons of Anarchy, with very dark characters, including John. 

A/N: I understand some individuals may not want to read this because of the heavy topics but I have struggled from some and I know sometimes it helps me to know other’s understand it. It also really helps me to get to imagine how Sam Winchester would help me. I’ve never had a drug addiction so if I portray it incorrectly please let me know and I will fix it. Thank you for reading, let me know if you like it!


You lived in the heart of Las Vegas, a city full of sex, gambling, and booze. In the city casinos thrived, each one owned by one of three packs. The south end of the strip belonged to HELL, a pack of sly bastards and vixen of women, all wishing to take what they want and give nothing in return. Their pack leader, Lucifer owned the BDSM ridden casinos and clubs alongside his omega Ruby, right hand man Crowley, and his ruthless hit man, Alastair. The rest of their pack helped organize and carry out plans of corruption and illegal activities.

The middle belonged to WAYWARD SONS, that was your pack. John and Mary honestly and rightfully running businesses for the average man, a few of their clubs and casinos for the higher paying individual. Their sons Sam and Dean are heir to the leader status, Sam being the likely candidate due to his Alpha status over his Beta brother.

The north end belonged to MOL, the men of letters, a group of formal but unruly individuals who seek control over the whole strip. Their unlikely female pack leader, Doctor Hess, is a conniving woman with a merciless second hand. Arthur Ketch and his omega Toni Bevell, took crap from no one and served back political consequences. Under but alongside the two heartless individuals stood a family of four, the infamous Stynes. Their treacherous behavior and unconventional medical practices allows them to rule the highest end of the class status.  

The three packs have lived in rivalry for as long as you’ve known. You joined WAYWARD four years ago, after Sam and you fell in love in what was rather, inconvenient circumstances. After bringing you home to the family and gaining the okay from his father, a passionate night left you sinfully sore between your legs and on your neck.

Kids Next Door Lore Headcanons
  • It’s pretty common for older operatives to groom their younger siblings to take their positions. Cree is one example of this. The practice has gone down as the Kids Next Door has become more popularized, but it’s far from strange to see older kids teaching little kids hand to hand in the backyard.
  • A game of tag decides the next Soopreme Leaduh, but that doesn’t mean the prior Soopreme Leaduh doesn’t push for a certain candidate before they retire. Numbuh 100 and Numbuh 274 both didn’t, but Numbuh 362 pushed hard for Abby to take her place. But at the end of the day, it’s up to the KND as a whole to decide who they want leading them.
  • The Kids Next Door didn’t originally deal in root beer and corn dog sales, but once the age limit was raised way too high they got to work.
  • Members of the Decommissioning Squad aren’t supposed to have friends. Ever. This little rule is double as harsh on the Head. They can’t afford weakness in their line of work. 
  • (Fanny has a loophole, being Rachel’s Global Tactical Officer, but kids still see her as a pretty soft Head for being pals with the Soopreme Leaduh and Kuki Sanban.)
  • Treehouses double as both shelter during weather disasters and places for abused children to live comfortably until they can find a new home.
  • There are like. Factions. For different fandoms. There’s the Warrior Cats club and the Doctor Time Space and the Continuums group and a herd of people who like ponies and pretty much everybody has at least one Rainbow Monkey they love. Disrespecting these groups is considered unnecessarily mean.
  • Bullies are considered almost as bad as traitors in the KND. If you’re an operative, and you’re using your skills to mess with kids who can’t defend themselves for laugh? Guess what, you’re a jerk, get out of town.
  • It’s not uncommon for kids to run away from home to become operatives- after all, you get candy, root beer, a room to yourself, and you learn how to kick butt. What’s the downside? 
  • This is not typically allowed- if found out, they’re sent home- unless they ran away for reasons deemed understandable. Your home life sucks and you just wanted to get away? We got ya, dude.
  • ^ Those are the few known Full-Time Operatives, and they get jobs in out of the way places like the ocean or the arctic, should they decide to take them. Numbuh 20,000 was a Full-Time Operative for the first two years of his service, and simply refused to transfer once he was settled into a loving home.
  • There are entire Sectuhs of kids who’ve been changed into weredogs and/or other supernatural creatures on the job or by family members. They’re given plenty of support and the accommodations they need to go about their daily lives.
  • The KND keeps a database of adults from all around the world who have been proven to be dangers to kids. Not just villains, but any adult who seems to have no problem hurting children is on the list. Operatives are advised to keep those places in their area heavily patrolled. 

When we’re old we can’t wait for the Christmas special where Eleven comes to meet the twenty-second Doctor and has to apologise for some ‘problematic’ things that were said or done during the horrible 2010′s. What a yucky decade that it was. We’re so enlightened by then of course. Can’t wait for Twenty two to give Eleven a lecture on forcibly kissing women. Difference is, he actually did it.

If you want to talk about problematic things in the First Doctor era, write a meta, write a book, don’t put imaginary traits on a character that weren’t there and shove it in what should be a fun meeting between Doctors and a send off for Twelve. Don’t tell us they’d ever bring Tom Baker back to complain about racism in ‘Talons’ or bring back Jon Pertwee’s Doctor to complain that the 70′s had ‘assistants’ and asked the companions to make tea. Let’s bring back Five so that we can have a new Doctor tell them that the companions are there ‘simply for the Dads’. It’s always the One era that gets this. Its the first so it must be the worst. Let’s dump on it and blame it for tiny moments of weakness that every other era also has, including the new series which is in no means perfect. 

And don’t get angry at people for feeling they need to stand up for this little era from the 60′s which now is being pulled down for literally being made in…the 60′s, There’s people actually defending this because ‘but guys the First Doctor era was problematic’ but the First Doctor wasn’t, and the problems were small ones, ones we don’t need shoved in an episode to point and laugh at and scare away new viewers who won’t dare watch a sexist First Doctor. We should be celebrating how revolutionary this era was, how it did it all with virtually no budget, ‘as-live’ with many crew who were making the rules as they went along. You think they had many months to perfect and polish their scripts, no they didn’t? It was all a rush and all so stressful and yet casual sexism was removed from scripts because they cared about this stuff. You read original notes and info texts and you’ll see how much is put in. Verity Lambert was the first female producer at the BBC and she was only 26 and did a marvellous job. And even the 60′s as a decade in Britain in itself is a revolutionary decade in lots of ways and yes let’s ignore that part by claiming 60′s as some sort of primitive ‘glad we moved on since then’ attitude. Yes there were problems but the way to move on is to remember the bad things but also remember the achievement and the one’s fighting for change.

Remember the BBC didn’t like Doctor Who much because it was new, it was trying new things, it was different and they didn’t understand it. It became the most famous science fiction programme in the world. William Hartnell was adored and he loved that role with all his heart. He’d be devastated for them to put these words into his mouth for the sake of ‘social commentary drama’ and patting our 21st century selves on the back saying ‘oooh aren’t we glad we’re not like those racist, sexist folk anymore?’ It’s like moments where One tried to persuade Barbara not to meddle in another culture didn’t exist, like all his moments where he stood up for injustice and helped people and respected his friends are now reduced to a ‘put the kettle on love’ kind of thing coz that was the 60′s and women were housewives lolz. And people are ok with this because they pretend it’s ok because it’s ‘good to point out flaws and critique’. Maybe Moffat should start with his many own because we’d rather critique the now, rather than dump all over something you can’t change about the past. ‘You can’t re-write history, not one line’. But they want to and they’re starting with One.

Sorry just had to say something. This is really getting us down especially what people are saying and trying to come up with reasons it’s alright but get back to us when it’s your Doctor, era, companions being treated this way. Wanna critique it fine, don’t do it on a Christmas special celebrating the programme. Maybe it’ll only be two awful lines of this shit but perceived fan wisdom is enough to break a character on one line alone. So no we don’t have to shut up about this. We’ll always champion One and his era. 

wrenwind  asked:

My MC was cursed by another witch. Her curse has been cured, but she has PTSD as a result. How might her PTSD be affected given that: 1) she's also a witch, 2) magic is a very visible/unavoidable part of this world, and 3) witches in this world HAVE to use their magic to prevent serious illness/injury? I've seen your posts on real-world PTSD but am not sure how my MC's magical situation would play into this. Thank you in advance!

The short answer: The same way. 

The slightly longer, louder answer:  IT’S YOUR WORLD, YOU GET TO MAKE THE RULES.

Assuming your world otherwise works like this world, and your character is, besides being a witch, also a human or human-analogue, why would or should their PTSD be different? 

Based on this really helpful list from the US National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), to be diagnosed with PTSD, an adult must have all of the following for at least 1 month:

  1. At least one re-experiencing symptom
  2. At least one avoidance symptom
  3. At least two arousal and reactivity symptoms
  4. At least two cognition and mood symptoms

Let’s look at the first set.  Re-experiencing symptoms include:

  • Flashbacks—reliving the trauma over and over, including physical symptoms like a racing heart or sweating
  • Bad dreams
  • Frightening thoughts

Your witch could have all three of these symptoms that she has to deal with every time they come up. They aren’t, in and of themselves, illnesses, so they’re not likely to be “cured.” Many, many people live with PTSD, managing their symptoms without a cure. Your witch will have to use her magic as her coping/management system.

Avoidance symptom? Easy. She avoids the place where she was cursed, or the place where the witch who cursed her lives, etc … Arousal symptom? She gets startled when she sees someone who looks like the person who cursed her, etc…

You might want to review how to make a good magical system, in case you’re putting too many restraints on yours (which is the opposite of what usually happens).

Remember: IT’S YOUR WORLD, YOU GET TO MAKE THE RULES.

Where There’s Tears, There’s Hope.

A really, really late entry for Twelve Days of Twelve:
Day 8: Favourite Character Development

Tomorrow is promised to no one.

Here is the problem with adventures and promises: they get you killed. And yet every day the Doctor sets out to prove the universe wrong on that one. He is the hoper of far-flung hopes, the dreamer of improbable dreams, the scientist who has never stopped believing in fairy tales, the optimist who is certain that if he does everything right, if he saves enough lives he can trick the universe into granting him favours.

Eleven has never learnt how to say goodbye, and Twelve does everything he can not to have to.

Clara dies on Trap Street and he doesn’t think twice about the sacrifices it would take to cheat time and death for her sake. Being a Time Lord he knows the rules. But being the Doctor he thinks he’s above them. He stands at the end of time, at the brink of a dying universe, and still refuses to accept that sometimes summer ends, even though he has a time machine.

Me does her best to make him understand that there are times he just needs to let people go.

So he does, under his own conditions.

Clara doesn’t get him to take it back, to regret the consequences of his actions. Yes, he’ll forget her, he’ll never see her again, but she’ll be out there, alive, having her own adventures, and it’s enough.

He accepts that never taking River to the Singing Towers of Derilium is not the secret cheat code of the universe, so he gets a new haircut, a new suit and cries as they listen to the towers and it might break his hearts but he still sets her free.

He loses Missy and Bill on a battlefield, in a war neither of them were meant to fight. And it’s not sad, nor beautiful, just the right thing to do so he does it hoping it won’t take long till it’s all over.

Twelve becomes the Doctor who learns how to lose people.

Except he does not.

He never ceases believing that one day he’d find his impossible girl and no memory wipe can stop him from recognising her straight away.

He sends River to her death, but not without a backup plan to save her.

And when he is dying on a space ship that’s trying to survive a cybermen invasion and a black hole, when he’s alone and finally seeing that tomorrow is truly not promised to no one, it’s then that the universe proves that it’s just as big, as vast and as ridiculous as the Doctor has always known. That sometimes, very rarely impossible things do happen, it’s then that it grants him his miracle.

Because where there’s tears there’s hope. And he’s the Doctor who, no matter the odds, will never stop hoping.

“If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.”

- Isaac Newton.

It’s International Women’s Day, and therefore a time many of us contemplate how far we have come. In 1865, Elizabeth Garrett Anderson became the first known female doctor in the UK, following which the rules were changed, barring women from entering medicine. The US’ Dr Elizabeth Blackwell, credited with being the first modern female doctor, had graduated just 1 year earlier.

I’d like to also mention Margaret Ann Bulkley, who lived their life as Dr James Barry. We may not know if this was because of a desire to live out their vocation (which would otherwise never have been allowed), or if Dr Barry represents the first trans doctor in the West. But I thought it fitting for us to remember that trans and NB people have never been absent from medical history.

Whilst I drew this, recovering from yet another night shift, I remembered how hard our grandmothers and great grandmothers fought for us. How few options women had, and how many bright minds have never been given the opportunity to excel because of who they were born. And how lucky we’ve been that we happen to exist in a time or place where we have options. And that we’ve grown up in environments which encouraged our talents and didn’t hinder our abilities. I owe a personal debt to my parents, my teachers and my friends for forming the environment which allowed me to be me.  When we do well, we are continuing a long line of hard work and dedication; standing on the shoulders of giants who enabled us to get where we are.

But it’s also time to remember that we’re still not there yet. Not whilst so many basic rights are denied to so many people around the word, many of them women and girls.

4417. When Starfire must return to her home planet to rule, she has to leave behind she and Dick’s baby daughter because her people will never accept what they perceive to be an alien or foreigner living on their planet. Dick tries his best to cope, but in the end realises it’s not safe for him to raise the little girl because if any of his enemies found out about her, they’d come after her. In the end, he gives the child to Wally and Jinx, who already have a family of their own, to raise. He bribes doctors and government officials to forge documents saying Wally and Jinx are the girl’s biological parents. The girl grows up calling him Uncle Dick obliviously for the rest of her life while her siblings wonder why she’s the only one of them without red hair.

im sorry if this is annoying but did dan talk about being nb in his liveshow? i've seen ppl mention it but i have a very short attention span and i always miss half of what he talks about because i get distracted too easily, sorry for the bother ily <333

he was talking about the new doctor who being a woman and then someone in the chat said that the doctor is probably nonbinary. he responded with something like ‘yeah maybe’ and then said doctor who is a world where those kind of rules don’t need to exist so we should just push that ‘formless blob’ agenda. this is alluding to the discussion he had in the march 21 live show about sexuality and gender, and about how labels on those identities don’t really need to exist, and it’s okay to instead just sort of exist as a ‘formless blob’

The whole thing in The Lie of the Land where the Doctor is getting people sent to labour camps would’ve been a tolerable aspect of the story if it was revealed that he was secretly using these as bases to ‘deprogram’ the Monks’ influence from them (like the soldiers on his ship) and eventually mount a resistance.

Like… he’s President of the World, and the Monks (of which there are only twelve), while not entirely convinced, are under the impression that he’s on their side.

He had established power and resources, which is how you’d easily explain why this dictatorship became institutionalised practically overnight - appearing to be in-support of the Monks’ rule. It would’ve been great if the resolution was a mix of Bill’s memory of her mum saving all the people across the world who hadn’t been deprogrammed, while the Doctor has been playing the Monks with perhaps the greatest act of theatre in Earth’s history.

Whithouse drops that shit into the opening scene and then does absolutely nothing with the fact that people were killed and sent to work in labour camps across at least six months… because “everyone forgot”.

The message of the denouement is that humanity is doomed never to learn from their mistakes, and that’s just fundamentally not a Doctor Who message…

Extremis and The Pyramid at the End of the World showed lots of organisations and institutions working to uncover and deal with this great mystery - the Catholic Church, CERN, the UN, and the Russian/US/Chinese forces. Science and religious institutions. The three greatest powers on Earth. They were working together. They agreed that they would disobey orders from their superiors to make peace with each other. And we’re supposed to believe that humanity can’t learn from their mistakes and find another solution?

This could’ve culminated in UNIT taking centre-stage (no Osgood or Kate Stewart in Series 10 is criminal) in The Lie of the Land, where they are posing as the Memory Police.

What a fabulous flip it would’ve been to (literally) play the Monks at their own game, fooling them into believing they were living in the kind of world they had simulated a million times over, where they had won and ruled everything.

Suddenly, it’s a mixture of humanity’s tenacity and ingenuity (exemplified by the ‘performance’), and love (the memory of Bill’s mum) that defeats the Monks.

Maybe even keep forgetting the whole event at the end, but have the message be that humanity will always join together in a time of crisis like this to defeat this cosmic common enemy.

I swear, whatever it takes, I will keep you safe.

Twelve Days of Twelve: Day 1: The Moment You Fell in Love With the 12th Doctor

Sorry. Sorry, it’s all my fault. My time machine got stuck in your throat. It happens. I brought you along by accident, that’s mostly how I meet girls. But don’t worry, I promise I will get you home. I swear, whatever it takes, I will keep you safe.
The Doctor - Deep Breath

When Twelve says those lines, not to Clara, but his next possible companion - that’s the moment I didn’t just fall in love with Twelve, but when Peter Capaldi became *my* Doctor for once and for all. Because those lines capture everything you’ll ever need to know about the show.

In that moment the dinosaur stops being a time-machine munching reptile and becomes a metaphor for all those other companions the Doctor has failed, all the other wrongs he didn’t right, the lives he didn’t save.

With everything that’s going on in series 8 (Missy, mostly) we like to forget that right there is the first promise Twelve gives someone - and only a few minutes later he miserably fails to live up to it.

She was scared and alone. I brought her here and look what they did.

The dinosaur dies and it’s his fault. That’s the first, big traumatic event of Twelve’s regeneration - no wonder it takes him the rest of his run to figure out if he truly is the good guy.

Moffat said in an interview

Science-fiction is notoriously male. You can tell that because everyone wears uniforms and marches around talking about rules. But Doctor Who has always felt to me, rather female. It’s full of kindness and compassion and eccentricity and wisdom instead of violence.

It’s the Doctor’s compassion which gets me every time. With Twelve we learn numbers don’t matter. He is not beyond mourning the loss of a single dinosaur. Twelve feels, he cares, he is not afraid to act on those emotions and uses them to his advantages, to do what needs to be done to save everyone else.

Yes, the past three series we’ve seen Twelve can be cruel, but it’s always because he’s compassionate first.´

I’m not going to lie… this next Steve Roger Series is going to be long, we’re talking Baby Come Home long… whoops!!

Rule One of being a doctor, don’t get over attached to your patients.

Well that rules been broken.

Rule Two of being a doctor, don’t date your patients.


But what if he has blue eyes and a killer smile that make your insides throw a dance party when he’s near you??
Rule Three of being a doctor, don’t ever loose focus on doing your job, nothing comes between you and your career.


See comment above… was the smile mentioned? Or that he’s Captain America?

Being a doctor was everything in your life, you never second guessed the life you lived and the choices you made. But one night with a DNR contract, everything changes when you learn just who is sitting in your ER. This life is all give no take, your job requires all your time, but what happens when the gorgeous blonde you did a patch job on wants to see you again? You can’t say no, he’s good with kids, that smile and those blue eyes should be illegal to use against you when he’s asking to take you out. A social life, a love life, with your life style, with his life style? You’re kidding yourselves right?

Maybe I’ll post a snippet of it tomorrow.

anonymous asked:

I have Ehlers-danlos (I get joint pain and am more likely to have my joints dislocate/displace) and narcolepsy and was wondering if it would be safe to bind.

Devon says:

I don’t have Ehlers-danlos, but I do have narcolepsy! Narcolepsy shouldn’t affect your ability to bind. 

However, it’s not safe to bind while you sleep for long periods of time. As a general rule, you’re not supposed to bind while you sleep at all. 

But, if you just fall asleep for a couple minutes sitting at your desk, it shouldn’t cause any issues. If you tend to fall asleep for long periods of time (like more than 10 minutes) unexpectedly, you could ask someone who lives with you to wake you up if you’re binding when you fall asleep.

P.S. It’s so cool to hear from another trans person with narcolepsy!

Jay says:

I’m adding on because I have Ehlers-Danlos! You should ask your doctor if you could. You’ll be more likely to develop soft tissue damage, rib dislocations and subluxations (partial dislocations), broken ribs, and lung problems. You probably can, but you’d have to be extra careful, probably bind looser, and have your doctor keeping an eye on you. Don’t start binding without talking about the pros and cons with your doctor. 

You’ll also probably have more pain. If your doctor decides it’s not a serious injury-type pain, you’ll have to decide if it’s worth it for you. If your arm and shoulder joints dislocate you might need a zipper/velcro binder because putting on and taking off a regular pullover binder is much harder on those joints. 

Also, if you have co-morbid issues like dysautonomia or mast cell problems, you’ll have to ask those specialists. 

Things I like about the 12th Doctor

1) For some reason, I like the floof. It gives him a vague mad scientist look.

2) that mixture of hoodies and suits he wears is like something I would wear if available

3) He plays the guitar

4)It’s not officially canon that he’s autistic, but it might as well be in my opinion.

5) No desperate “but Missy, you could be the good guy” he knows she’s evil+crazy and can’t do a damn thing about it.

6) He humiliated Rassilon and didn’t just live, he booted the fucker off the planet, became lord president, and broke every rule he could.

7) He dismantled his radio because it played a song that got stuck in his head and then made a mechanical squirrel out of the parts.

8) He fucking saved Davros

9) He created sonic sunglasses. Because he could.

10) his sonic screwdriver is amazing

11) he likes punk rock music

12) He’s funny, fairly sassy, with a pretty good sense of humour but can be very serious when he needs to be.
