The challenge itself is here

Fresh belongs to @loverofpiggies

Decans belongs to @little-noko

How do you teach boys emotional intelligence?

how do you teach little girls emotional intelligence from an early age? you give them the emotional freedom to express how they feel free of judgement. you teach them to articulate their feelings so they’re able to identify what the emotion is that they’re feeling. it is actually possible to teach a young boy to to be a man while still teaching him to articulate his feelings. there shouldn’t be one without the other.

A Dream Within A Dream
Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

@ask-killer-booty I’m glad you asked!!! I am PASSIONATE about autistic Zoro

I’ve made a few posts about the subject but lemme sum up here

  • flat affect
  • specialist subject: swords
  • rigid routine
  • severe and unchanging likes and dislikes
  • comfort object: haramaki, which he keeps wearing even after he switches to keeping his swords in his sash. bonus points: soft constant compression is a classic autistic stim
  • often nonverbal
  • sensory repulsion: sweet foods
  • bluntly honest at all times
  • goes into fugue states
  • echolalia (mimicking other’s sounds), especially with Sanji
  • has a hard time dealing with Robin and other people who have subtle expressions of emotion
  • patchy sleep schedule and poor sense of direction can be comorbid with autism
Ok I need to talk about how much Alec has opened up this season!

I’m not talking about towards Magnus, because he absolutely had and that’s wonderful, but just with his expression of emotion in general. He used to be so closed off, and so regimented, carefully in control of his emotions, and the only time we ever really saw him smile was around Magnus, but now - putting aside the Jocelyn guilt - he’s smiling and pulling faces at Max and all sorts of things!

There’s so much expression in his face lately, even sometimes when it’s pain, and I love it so much! You can see a little of Matt bleeding into Alec this season with the face he pulls at Max when Maryse is being a bitch, or when Max mentions his warlock boyfriend, or even in the “SHUT UP” face he pulls at Izzy when she mentions Jessica Hawkblue or that look he gives Iris when she asks if he’s Clary’s boyfriend, like he is saying so much without saying anything this season, he’s loosened up so much now, and he’s able to have these kind of wordless reactions - and you can see so much of Matt in them too, which is adorable! - and its just so cute!

It gives Alec this extra bit of lightness and comedy, because he isn’t one for talking much, so when I see these little looks - that may or may not be improvised sometimes, I have no idea! - it just makes me smile and giggle like an idiot because it’s another adorable quirk Alec has that we get to see now that he’s opened up, and it’s the just cutest thing!!

consider, if you will, a character who’s normally the picture of calm and collected; very reserved and disciplined with their emotions, no big expressions or gestures, some would even call them stone-faced… except for the rare occasion when they encounter that one thing they’re fiercely allergic to

its effect on them is so torturous and overwhelming that all their self-restraint goes out the window in an instant. building up to the attack is an outright dramatic affair, complete with frantic hand-fanning and stammered warnings/apologies for what is about to happen, followed by spasmodically twitching nostrils and vocalized gasps for air, hitching in and out of them with mounting urgency until tears are soaking their eyelashes, their lips are drawn back in a desperate grimace, nostrils flared so wide that one could glimpse their inner, reddened, mercilessly itchy depths -

then, when they finally start sneezing they do so with complete abandon, because there’s no way they’re going to endure this sensation a second longer than necessary, and they know from past experience that any attempts at holding back are only going to make things worse

anyone who witnesses this happening for the first time is usually left in a mild state of shock at this highly uncharacteristic production. 

First of all, perhaps one of the most celebrated couples in the series was Klaus Mikaelson and Caroline Forbes. The couple is known as Klaroline. Things haven’t been going well for the couple to the point where fans start questioning whether there is hope for Klaroline. This build-up of the romantic but apparently not-so-constructive relationship between the two characters has made the audience pretty gloomy. However, an interesting revelation dawned. There most probably be a dramatic turn of events what fans have been wanting after all, as confirmed by the producer. This news is huge, and fans have no words to express their emotions! The two characters form one of the most beloved couples in television fiction, and it would have indeed been a severe heartbreak if their love did not triumph in the end. At first, it did not at all seem that there was even a minimal possibility that things would end well, but Julie has most certainly saved the day. Fans will now be able to sleep contently.[…]The answer may not be certain as of now, and both possibilities remain intact, but a partial affirmative given by the producer to tell fans to not give up hope on the rather demoralized Klaroline

So, according to the books, the only time Avallac'h has ever outwardly expressed emotions was in an argument with Cirilla where he (in rage) revealed to have been in love with Lara when she was alive. It's also insinuated that he was supposed to be mated to Lara, which makes it possible that Avallac'h carried unique genes of his own. Might this be why he seems to be both resentful and infatuated with Ciri? Eredin even remarks to Ciri that he can't see the beauty of Lara in her as Avallac'h can.

I remember when Eredin told Avallac’h that when you look closely you can find something that awakens in you the memory of Lara Dorren. He meant Ciri’s eyes. Eredin found a nugget of gold on a pile of manure. As for Avallac’h, he could have been resentful and infatuated with Ciri at the same time. Personally, I’m on the fence. In their argument, he said to Ciri that she is the daughter of Cregennan (not Lara’s) - dh’oine as her. What’s more, he added that her ancestor stole his beloved Lara from him. (It wasn’t her fault…) On the other hand, he saw Lara in her green eyes (not only him… Auberon, Eredin). That might have been the cause of being resentful and infatuated with her at the same time… (?)

I dunno.

listen i’m never gonna shut up about the look on Cas’ face after Dean said “we don’t leave family behind” because THIS is exactly what Cas has struggled with for so many years. He always gets left behind, either by the angels or by the Winchesters, and he’s never quite felt like he belongs anywhere. But for Dean to straight up tell him that they won’t leave him behind, that they would rather die trying to save him, is such a powerful moment. It was important for Cas to hear that and I hope he keeps getting these affirmations because he desperately needs them.

it’s the fact they have been through so much that makes it so hard for me to stop crying tbh. 

it’s the fact that they went through so much as trainees in such a competitive world such as kpop where some managing labels go so far as to physically abuse or even mentally abuse idols into acting a way they want (and it’s the fact that this very well most likely happened to bts with that mishap with their one manager last year). it’s the fact that they’ve been told they wouldn’t make it, the fact that they’ve struggled so hard to prove them all wrong and to deliver each comeback with such precise choreo; the fact that they’ve literally worked big hit from the bottom up, going from having to use their manager’s car while filming mvs to exploding cars and hiring hundreds of extras in only a few years time; the fact that, the one time in kobe when they couldn’t perform, yoongi was so physically hurt and depressed that he had let the fans, that he had let us, down that he went back to the stage in kobe; the fact that he cried and then said that he knows crying is losing only to burst into tears tonight for winning artist of the year because he hasn’t lost, because he’s won something he’s been striving for for so long; it’s the fact that namjoon, the smart leader who always knows how to carry the group through thick and thin, was physically speechless and started crying even before he could talk because he’s talked about being depressed and feeling useless and now he’s won such a huge award; it’s the fact that these boys have been with each other through literally everything with awkward and shy trainee days, to becoming family when they can’t even have the chance to see their own biological family, to encouraging jungkook to come out of his shell and for consoling taehyung when his grandmother passed away. it’s the fact that they’ve tried so hard to win a daesang and they’ve finally did it and it’s only the beginning of more wonderful achievements to come, 

and I couldn’t be prouder.  

You ruin your life by desensitizing yourself. We are all afraid to say too much, to feel too deeply, to let people know what they mean to us. Caring is not synonymous with crazy. Expressing to someone how special they are to you will make you vulnerable. There is no denying that. However, that is nothing to be ashamed of. There is something breathtakingly beautiful in the moments of smaller magic that occur when you strip down and are honest with those who are important to you. Let that girl know that she inspires you. Tell your mother you love her in front of your friends. Express, express, express. Open yourself up, do not harden yourself to the world, and be bold in who, and how you love. There is courage in that.
