Okay but I think people are forgetting that Laurent isn’t a feminine man by any means…he’s actually kind of fuckin manly. He’s built like the statue of David, described to have broad shoulders, a cut body and not to mention the strength to whirl around a 500lb+ horse while cutting down soldiers with one arm.
Damen used to chase after gladiators for crying out loud. You know he’s gotta admire Laurent’s body for how sporty and strong it is. He’s not like this…slight, soft-bellied boy I tend to see around the fandom. The super long hair, the soft body, always making him bottom (did we forget he nearly topped Damen if not for some rude premature climaxing)…
idk I feel like Laurent is being feminized into very boring, stereotypical role where there always has to be “a girl” of the relationship. And I feel like with all the different ways Pacat described him she was very careful about trying to avoid this very thing! Laurent may be a prettyboy but that doesn’t mean he isn’t masculine af too. I just don’t want his awesome character to fall into the same void that nearly every other ‘bottom designated’ gay man gets in any given fandom.
if you keep it in the box and display it nicely you might be able to get a lot of money by selling it some day, especially with the errors in the paint job that'll raise it's value since it's one-of-a-kind in that sense. don't take it out of the box. just put it on your shelf.
me, taking my new toy out of the box fully intending to put it into stupid poses that might break its limbs:
Preface: Please don’t phobia shame me on my birthday, lol I am very weird about needles but everyone’s fears are valid
Today March 2nd, 2017 I got my first T shot. I am so grateful for all of my friends that’s kept me going while I was waiting so long to get started. especially @c-rackinglev1s because he’s my ride or die I had the privilege of accompanying him for his first shot almost four months ago and he’s so AMAZING he put up with my shit and did mine for me. This has been a very fortunate birthday for me and I look forward to sharing my journey.
okay so i talk a lot about this headcanon and i decided to finally do a detailed meta about it.
first and foremost, let’s talk about what c-ptsd is. c-ptsd stands for complex post traumatic stress disorder, a differing disorder from the more common ptsd. it’s worth noting that c-ptsd isn’t an officially recognized disorder in the DSM - it’s been deemed too similar to ptsd and bpd for its own diagnosis, but it’s still used informally and i believe has its merit. i have ptsd, and would describe it more specifically as c-ptsd.
anyway, onto the specifics, and what this means for sasuke himself:
1. the trauma
putting under a cut because this baby is looong and image-heavy. sorry if you’re mobile and it shows the whole thing.
