So i saw a post a few days ago about neurotypicals who say that stim/fidget toys make you *less* focused and how fucked that is and it got me thinking of an analogy.
So you know when you try on a friend’s glasses and you can’t see shit???? Their glasses make your vision worse, right? But you realize that it’s because YOU DON’T NEED THEM. You might mention or make a joke about how blurry things are for you, but you still understand and appreciate that the glasses help your friend see, even though they aren’t good for you personally.
So when you try your friend’s tangle or fidget cube and claim, as a blanket statement, that it makes you *less* focused and that your friend should stop using it for that reason?? You’re being just as much of an asshole as if you tried on your friend’s glasses and said “wow, you know these ACTUALLY make your vision WORSE, right???” because you’re assuming that your experience is the same as theirs when it’s really, really not.
HOOO BOY I didn’t think I would have to do this in this nearly 3 years down the line, but my inbox has become a hellish wasteland due to misinformation so I’m gonna be as blunt as possible here: I don’t ship Makorra and I haven’t since the show ended.Personally it’s just… not My Jam anymore. It hasn’t been for a while. But that’s not the point of this post.
An old post of mine started going around claiming that my opinion regarding fandom toxicity is invalid because “I’m a 24 year old makorra shipper who’s still bitter about korrasami”. I touched base with the person who left the comment asap to try to figure out what was going on & they told me they had me confused with another blogger. They retracted the statement immediately.
… but the damage had already been done. The version of the post with the “callout” is still circulating.
Look, if this was true and if on top of that I was in fact spreading any kind of hatred or making shitty posts that offended people, I would take this criticism to heart and work to actively change what I was doing. I want and have always wanted this blog to be a safe and comfortable space for anyone and everyone.
But. Honestly. I refuse to go down because of a case of mistaken identity. This is ridiculous, guys.
If you have to call someone out, please try to do a little research. Misinformation can be harmful.
my Cephalotus finally has big enough pitchers for me to feed her her first meal!! i gave her a dead fly I chopped into little bite sized pieces and put in the pitchers with tweezers, and a droplet of distilled water in each to help stimulate her digestive glands!! she’s getting so big guys omg
i have been obsessing over this little snippet of the original heathers script ((pls daniel waters,, i’m begging you,, release the whole thing)) and there are just so many things that fell out of place just because so much changed between the script and the movie and i feel the need to share them
heather mcnamara Also hooks up with david from the remington party
there are five suicides. obviously three are heather chandler, ram, and kurt, but since this scripts was written under the assumption that the reader has already read all of the script leading up to this point, it does not expound at all on who exactly the five suicides were. we can only speculate (and i’m guessing heather duke and peter because there are some lines that suggest it)
martha dunnstock is paralyzed up to the legs
it’s implied that veronica killed people because she wanted the other students to learn something
ms fleming attempted suicide five times
instead of the doll, jd hangs the bedsheet noose,, which has even more of an “and then there were none” vibe
jd makes it very clear that when he was planning to kill veronica, he was going to make sure it was quick and painless
veronica’s mom slaps her for faking suicide
jd sits nude while holding a family portrait and admiring the bomb he built and in the next scene veronica sits nude while holding a gun
jd sets up thermals all throughout the school and at one point a hall monitor stops him and asks for a hall pass so jd shoots him and hides the body in the boiler room after stuffing a thermal down his pants
veronica decides to blow herself up after witnessing the typical horrible things that go down in a hallway during a passing period, but what stands out to me is that she also witnesses betty finn holding hands with a guy and heather mcnamara “in melancholic but eerily heroic contemplation” which to me seem like things that would make her not want to die
in her final moments, veronica helps a beetle that got stuck on its back
betty finn and heather mcnamara simultaneously find veronica’s suicide note while everyone else is freaking out
then the prom in heaven sequence starts and shit gets weirder
i think peter and some character that was not in the final movie named shannon have a baby?? (might be worth mentioning that she was a member of the yearbook staff)
there are so many more characters that i feel like i’m supposed to know some of them have descriptions but most do not and i am Confused
there are so many reconciliations between characters going on in this scene and then kurt has his prom picture taken with the cow he tipped
Also! mr. dawson is mentioned in this script and if you keep up with the reboot cast list there is a character there by the same name that i was wondering about a while back. it’s possible that the reboot my draw a bit from this original script (although i doubt jason micallef has the whole thing but he does please share jason)
jd does a guitar solo
leaders of the united states and the soviet union come on stage with big fun and fly their flags
I miss the feeling I got when you held my hand, when you smiled at me when I was walking towards you. I miss that feeling I got when I said something and you looked at me like you were in love. Oh my I miss the way you looked at me and how you held eye contact when we had nothing to say. And how you moved to see me when I was crying. Your hand was always so warm and comforting. But do not mistake this for me missing you. I could never miss a monster.
I do not miss you, just the feeling from when I was with you.
