Koller couldn’t be arsed to wear a full suit; to him it has too much of the Beardy McFancy Diploma feel. The most he’ll wear is the vest and tie combo, making sure to roll up his sleeves to show off his augs.
willhell’s dad: YOURE RUINING YOUR FUTURE. I’M CUTTING YOU OFF. GOOD LUCK MAKING PAYMENTS ON YOUR ASTON MARTIN!!
willhell: I DON’T CARE *violin randomly starts playing* I’LL SETTLE FOR A TOYOTA FOR NOORA (right then he’s thinking to himself “toyota for noora” that’s a damn good line, he’ll use it next time he’s trying to be romantic)
This is a filmography of some of the wonderful characters Helena Bonham Carter has played in her acting years. This feature you are able to find on my desktop theme and if you were to hover over any particular character image you will the following:
• The film/program title
• The name of the character Helena played (which is also a link to a trailer)
step one: allow yourself some semblance of a smile. your grief is not an iron cage and you are not trapped. you are allowed to mourn your own innocence, even if you barely remember how it felt.
step two: hold his hand. you want to, even if you won’t admit it outloud. you want to take him and keep him so close to your chest that the world never has another chance to lash out, but if it did you’d be stood like a shield, like a guardian angel even the devil would avoid. it’s okay. it’s okay. hold his hand.
step three: you don’t have to say the words for them to be true; at this point the “i love you"s are as natural as breathing, noiseless and soft. when you look at the stars you see the same light you find in his eyes everyday.
step four: give yourself a chance to heal. it might take a while. it might take years. your past is a minefield no one taught you to navigate before now, but you are strong and you are loved and that’s enough (it has to be enough).
step five: you gave him a key, a home, a reason to wake up with a smile and he gave you a reason to look forward to what was once a grey-scale future, now bathed in a shade of blue even the ocean would envy.
“Stars die and are born in places like this one […] They condense like raindrops from giant clouds of gas and dust. They get so hot that the nuclei of the atoms fuse together deep within them to make the oxygen we breathe, the carbon in our muscles, the calcium in our bones, the iron in our blood, all of it was cooked in the fiery hearts of long-vanished stars. You, me, everyone…we are made of star stuff.” - Neil deGrasse Tyson
Maybe because you're pretty, you're used to getting away with things. But I want you to know that your actions have an affect on others, and I hate you. And you're a horrible person. And you not understanding that you're a horrible person doesn't make you less of a horrible person.
Crackfic prompt: There’s an old urban legend that says if you visit a 7-11 store on a Monday in Sapporo, Japan, and select the right flavor of ice cream (making sure to do it “carefully”), you can potentially summon Daesung to your side.
How I plan on shutting down ableist remarks in the future
<b><p></b> <b>Someone:</b> Your autism can't be that bad! I didn't notice it!<p/><b>Me:</b> The fact that I am able to pass as neurotypical does not mean that I am. You only don't see that I'm autistic because I was struggling my entire life as an undiagnosed autistic person to fit in as good as I can. Because my quality of life depends on it. I was bullied enough to know that I have to choose between either being myself and mentally tortured for it by others unaccepting of any autistic trait or acting out of my natural way of behavior. The fact that people invalidate me as an autistic individual after THEY have forced me to not be noticeably autistic is just a further manifestation of the emotional manipulation and ableism directed towards autistic people. The fact that I am not noticeably autistic is nothing but a protective mechanism that I devote a lot of energy to. Telling me that I need to present more autistic in order to actually be autistic is nothing but further abuse and a way to deny help that autistic people like myself are in need of. The fact that I'm not noticeably autistic doesn't "lessen" the fact that I'm autistic, just as well as the fact that I'm cis-het-passing doesn't make me cis-het.<p/><b>Someone:</b> You must be pretty high function!!<p/><b>Me:</b> Functioning labels are nothing but a result of our capitalistic society which is evaluating the worth of people in general and even more of disabled people based upon how much and well they contribute to society. The only difference between me and a person deemed as "low functioning" is that the struggles I face as an autistic individual are on different levels that do not have an impact on factors valued by our capitalistic society. I am able to take care of myself around 60-70%, I was able to finish school and now I'm visiting university, which will lead to me later on taking a job and thus contributing my energy to our society in a way that everyone else profits from, besides me. Because as an autistic individual, I struggle with these things a lot even though I'm able to do them. "Low functioning" autistic people are oftentimes not able to contribute to society in a way that provides monetary resources for others and the state and if they are, then they aren't able to take on jobs that would further maximize that gain. By slapping functioning labels on autistic people, you are either ignoring their struggles (high functioning) or their talents (low functioning) based solely on contributing to our capitalistic society in a socially appropriate way.<p/><b>Someone:</b> You don't look autistic!<p/><b>Me:</b> Based on studies conducted on Caucasian boys, psychologist actually discovered general facial characteristics for autistic people which I match, even though I am not male. Furthermore, these studies are highly ethnocentric, they don't offer the same resources for other ethnic backgrounds as well as they don't collect data on non amab people. Additionally, invalidating someone based on their looks is totally useless and doesn't even make any sense. You can't see if someone has depression, borderline or even cancer if they didn't start any treatment yet. So why should you be able to say if someone looks autistic or not? How do you even think that diagnosis works? You enter your therapist office and they immediately diagnose you as autistic because of how you look???<p/></p><p/></p>
