extreme reaction

4

Gallirei makeout session. 

I should explain that up until this point, they’ve been sleeping together but are definitely not a couple. Reiner’s reaction is extreme, he is so desperate for affection and love in any aspect of his life, and up until this point he’s never been able to get it (except for from Bert). Galliard is slowly starting to acknowledge this side of Reiner, and is surprised byt how much he likes it.

Under the cut is the headcanon/drabble behind this specific scenario. Thanks to @alinajames

idlewildly  asked:

Is it an autism thing to have a really extreme or exaggerated reaction to caffeine? Most people get energised and happy from it, but if I drink a regular-sized cup of coffee (or overly much tea or cola) I get really anxious and tired and a headache. Also, it seems to be even more diuretic for me than for most people. I know autistics often have atypical reactions to various medications, so... ITAAT?

Yes, that would fall under atypical reactions to medications. Though we don’t often think of it as such, caffeine is a drug and as such can produce atypical responses in autistic people.

The Houses and Humo(u)r
  • Gryffindor: Blunt, decisive comments that you either think are hysterical or extremely insulting. Gets loud when telling a joke, laughs super heartily, turns red in the face, etc.
  • Hufflepuff: Is so into the tag yourself meme and internet jokes in general. Loves to repeat jokes they've read online or in a magazine (or heard in general), none that are particularly aggressive or forthcoming on any particular stances. Loves when everyone is laughing together, hides face when laughing, laughs until crying.
  • Slytherin: Brutal one liners and sarcastic comments, cutting remarks that are so funny that you can't help but laugh, mocks own pretentiousness, makes the worst faces, is actually an idiot. Laughs in this weird-ass way so that no sound comes out and they just never break eye contact
  • Ravenclaw: Either tells a terrible pun, a joke about academia, or a dirty joke, there is no in-between. Likes to see the extreme reactions from friends, instead of laughing, they just have a giant, doofy grin.

This is still my favourite Sami Zayn Vs Kevin Owens moment I’ve ever seen

Bonus Cesaro and The Miz reactions 

Then Cesaro does his part and Sami is like DUDE!

ALL THIS IN THE FIRST 10 SECONDS OF THE MATCH!

There is a certain noise that causes an extreme reaction of fear and unease in humans. You’re a scientist whose life work has been trying to figure out why humans evolved to fear it so much. One day, an alien race visits earth, and their ships make a very familiar sound..

A Handful of Questions to Ask Yourself While Creating a Character

Compelling characters make compelling stories. Here’s a bunch of questions you can ask yourself while developing a character. 

1) What does your character want from life? What is their motivation? What drives them? Most people want things - it could be as small as wanting a sandwich, or something huge like wanting to change the world. Does your character want something? Does your character dream? What about? And if they don’t, why don’t they? 

2) Is your character shy? Outgoing? Insecure? Proud? Why are they the way they are? My favourite example of this question answered well is Ron Weasley from Harry Potter. He’s insecure because he doesn’t come from a wealthy family, has a bunch of older brothers who are all amazing in some form or way, his mother always wanted a daughter, Ginny, and so he doesn’t feel as wanted. Also, one of his best friends is the Chosen One, and the other is the brightest witch of her age - a cocktail that would make anyone doubt themselves. 

3) What kind of clothes does your character wear? Why? The way you dress says a lot about who you are. For instance, If a character wears designer clothes and the latest fashions, it shows that they have the means to keep up with the trends. However if they wear a medley of things bought second-hand, or buy cheap stuff from supermarkets, they might not have the money to spare on outfits, or maybe they just don’t care about fashion.

4) How does your character speak?  Speech patterns have origins. An accent, language, a dialect, all signify geography, social class, personality. It could be as simple as cussing too much. But be sure you know why your character speaks the way they do. And if it’s not a speech pattern you’re familiar with, do your research!

5) Likes and dislikes I sometimes give characters specific likes (”I like tomatoes”) or specific dislikes (”I dislike eggs”), simply because it humanises them. You don’t have to do this, or be as specific as that, if it doesn’t serve your story. But it’s definitely something you can consider. Everyone has those little things they love and hate, and you can go places with them. (”I hate eggs because my childhood bully threw an egg at me and scarred me for life.”) Be creative and have fun with it.

6) Who does your character love? Romantic attraction isn’t necessary to create a wholesome character. Nevertheless, if they are in love with someone, be sure to understand why they love someone. Love is at its best, a complicated emotion difficult to break down, but a relationship has to be believable. As a reader, I need to be able to look at a couple and think, yeah, I can see what their love is built on. 

7) What would their favourite songs be? This is not so much a question as it is a trick I use to get a better feel for who my character is. No matter what time period your story is set in, you can use this to understand your character better. Take your playlist and pick what songs they would enjoy. It says a lot about who they are. For instance, one of my characters would enjoy Western classical music and nothing else. Another character listens to the worst kind of pop and loves it. 

8) How does your character react under stress? Can they cope with it? Do they get tense? Angry? Teary? Why? Why not? How a person deals with stress is a vital part of their personality. Decisions taken under stress can be the worst you’ve ever made, or (depending on how you handle stress), can be effective solutions to problems. The way a person reacts to stress often has a lot to do with their background and upbringing. Example (this is a generalisation, of course): someone who comes from a difficult family background may have more extreme reactions to stress than someone who is well-adjusted and comes from a happy family. 

9) What does your character do when they’re alone? You’re often a different person alone than when you are with other people. The pretences and false faces come away, and all the little thoughts you usually ignore now have time to play in the open. Who is your character when they’re alone? What do they do? What do they think about? Why do they think about/do things in that way?

10) Where does your character fail? Characters must have flaws to be compelling. Nobody is perfect, and your character shouldn’t be either. Whether its insecurity or anger, or a lack of initiative, or smaller things like not being a good artist, or not being the best at sports–we all have personal failings and we all have things we aren’t good at. Consider: where does your character mess up? 

I hope this helps! Remember to have fun. Developing characters can be the most exciting thing. Keep an open mind while working. Happy writing! 

At no point has “triggered” come off as a funny term to me. Like even isolating it from the poor taste its constantly used in, triggered isn’t really functionally funny? If I want to use a word to describe someone being agitated to the point of reaction (assuming that’s the generalized meaning its being used as a stand-in for) I think “activated” is actually hilarious. Like: “I brought up republican corruption in front of my dad and he fucking ACTIVATED” is funny because it suggests a drastic change in an almost inhuman way since the word is more mechanical in nature, but you still know the reaction was extreme. Still, the important thing is also intent. In the context of goading someone out of cruel motivations there’s not really any comedy to be had unless the offended party is involved in the situation to any extent beyond “I decided to piss them off”, at the very least in a way without serious damage or consequence. It’s the difference between John Mulaney tormenting an entire diner with Tom Jones and someone trying to induce flashbacks in a ptsd survivor. 

battle pain headcanons

so SOMEone asked for more battle injuries and i’m here to deliver:

  • Nocts gets stabbed by a Ronin and spends the next three days struggling to keep any solid food down while his stomach recovers.
  • Gladio dislocates a shoulder when his shield slams into an iron giant’s sword, Ignis has to pop it back in place immediately but it’s sore for over a week.
  • Ignis is too focused on healing Noct he gets smacked repeatedly by an MT unit and suffers an extended concussion
  • Prompto gets brass burns all over his exposed arms and neck where hot bullet casings flew out of the gun and touched him, he gets teased by the others because they look like hickeys
  • Noct gets yanked into a lake trying to catch the Arapamia, he climbs out wet and fishless with terrible whiplash
  • everybody gets stung by Killer Wasps but only Noct shows an extreme allergic reaction in the form of temporary amnesia and hives, he spends the next twenty four hours thinking he’s still 10 years old in Insomnia
  • recoil means sometimes Prompto jabs someone in the nads with machinery
  •  a miscalculation means sometimes Noctis runs out of stamina while hanging and falls from great height on top of an unsuspecting chocobro
  • facing a malboro ends up with the whole group trapped in the tent while the only person with a ribbon (Ignis) keeps them contained while distributing healing items, barely keeping them from killing themselves and others in a confused, poisoned, blind daze.
  • Prompto and Ignis collapse on the Rock of Ravatough in a fit of heatstroke
  • Gladio and Noctis stop halfway through the glacial caverns because the hypothermia hits them harder than the other two
  • Ignis groans in disgust whenever they have to fight a flan, creme brulee, or custard in the wild. the pain is artistic and emotional.
  • Before they acquired a Ring of Resistance, being mildly electrocuted and incinerated and frozen to bits while their novice mage (Noctis) figures things out was a common occurrence.
  • Gladio often fell and hurt his tailbone trying to climb a rock formation to get an Elixer, no heavy lifting for a while buddy!
  • Prompto always suffers the worst after fighting Necromancer, he panics when the petrification sets and tries really hard to physically break through it; he has to lay down and let his sore twitchy muscles rest for a few days afterwards. he can’t help that he’s claustrophobic and being trapped in his own body is the MOST EXTREME FORM OF IT
  • Ignis has a very delicate gag reflex, if something got in his mouth during a battle he will gag for HOURS
  •  Noct is forced to wear the leg brace after just an hour of walking on uneven dirt, he hates it but it alleviates the pain and pressure

Gil’s Story Is My Nightmare

You know, it normally takes weeks if not months for my feelings to settle on a subject relating to fiction. Like, my first time through, it’ll wash over me, I’ll consider it a while, and then, eventually, I’ll come to a conclusion.

But Gil’s story rubbed me wrong on first run, and I easily figured out why.

Gil’s story is my nightmare as a gay man.

I know I’m not the first to sum it up, but I am SO frustrated and pissed off by this (and Mass Effect Andromeda’s handling of M/M relationships in general), I need to work it out of my system.

I feel like everyone else probably already knows this, but it was exciting for me, so I’m sharing it.

In Red & Black, Marius compares Cosette to a ghost, “one minute there, then she was gone.”

Grantaire replies “I am agog, I am aghast” Which seems like a rather extreme reaction to someone falling in love, but whatever. Except. Aghast means “filled with a sudden sense of horror,” and comes from the Middle English word for terrifying, agasten which comes from the root word gæst, which means “spirit or ghost.” 

So. 

It’s a pun.

A jolt of hands, followed by a loud shriek and you suddenly find yourself wrapped within a strong pair of arms. Pressed firmly to his bare chest you hear the familiar chime of his laughter and you’re certain then that Jeon Jungkook would be the death of you. Lathered in scented suds you attempt to twist around within his grip only to slip upon the tiled floor, amusing him further.

BPD Symptoms and Features

**please note: the following post was originally posted by kellyann-graceful-warrior and has been reposted here by me and bolded and italicized to reflect which symptoms i feel apply to myself**

BPD is a chronic mental disorder of emotional dysregulation+hypersensitivity due to factors such as:

-A result of an overactive autonomic nervous system (fight or flight- functions associated to panic, anxiety, anger reactions, etc)
-An under-active parasympathetic nervous system (The system that is responsible to regulate the autonomic nervous system)
-Less active and smaller in volume abnormalities in the limbic system which has functions linked to: emotional reactions, memory, decision making, motivation, behavior, learning and developmental ability, thought pattern, instincts, psychotic symptoms, seizures, and senses/the way the body perceives external stimuli.
-Reduced volume in frontal lobe which has functions linked to: decision making, communication responses, ability to comprehend consequences, emotional-based memories and triggers, and relations to people, events and situations.
-Abnormal blood flow to parts of the brain that control emotions, resulting in one to be more reactive
-Emotional reactions firing off 20% longer
-A ton of other factors

Here are the 9 main symptoms noted in the criteria and research.

1. Extreme reactions to real or perceived/feared abandonment, rejection, or criticism

2. Splitting and idealization/devaluation

3. Identity disturbance- impoverished self image/self esteem and sense of self, dysphoria, despising ones self, and extreme instability and no direction towards the future, aspirations, goals, [career] plans, values, etc

4. Impulsive behavior- a sense of urgency to relieve intensity of emotions from stimuli, often self damaging (spending sprees, binge eating, steal, substance abuse, etc).

5. Reoccurring suicidal behavior/ideations (gestures, extensive thoughts, planning, role playing) and self-harm

6. Intense rapid cycling of affective instability due to hypersensitivity+dysregulation reactions

7. Depressive symptoms- chronic feelings of emptiness, frequent feelings of being miserable, shame, self-inferiority, and extreme difficulty recovering from such feelings

8. Intense anger and/or aggression reactions- frequent anger easily triggered from incidents

9. Paranoia/panic and dissociation reactions (often in response to stresses/anxieties)
[People with BPD may often experience reactions/episodes of psychosis- paranoia, hallucinations, delusions, body dysmorphic figures, etc, as well]

Then there are hundreds of other symptoms and features to this very complex, and unfortunately, highly stigmatized and misunderstood disorder. Here are a few indicated in research.
(Note- One with the disorder may display some or most of these, but nothing is guaranteed as each person with the disorder is an individual, so don’t use these as assumptions. Some may not have the same symptoms as others, and no person with it is portrayed the same way.
They are rather a guideline to mental health workers because they are often seen and developed from the disorder and symptoms).

(ALSO NOTE- Others without it can obviously ‘display/relate’ to some of this from time to time once you take a look, but the reasoning, cause, severity, and pattern is different and this is a chronic disorder.Please note it’s completely different than that and that this post is just for awareness/education purposes since not many know about it- how to deal, what to expect, etc.
Percentages show that 8/10 of these individuals attempt suicide, while 1/10 complete it. Stigma and assumptions don’t help, but awareness does.

10. Anxiety, nervousness

11. Headaches/migraines are common

12. Seizures

13. Higher nociception (pain tolerance)- Studies show alterations in pain processing in over 50% of those with BPD. The result of this comes from different systematic responses and antinociception and may be a result of long-term self harm behavior in some cases).

14. Distorted/irregular eating patterns- reduced food intake, impoverished diet, etc

15. Obsessive compulsive features- intrusive thoughts in the thought pattern/processes, repetitive behavior as a result of self harm, paranoia, distress, etc, and repetitive speech, to name a few

16. Self discipline/work orientation as a result of OCD features

17. Attachment

18. Extreme reckless-daring behavior

19. Baiting

20. Unstable relationships

21. “Always” and “Never” statements/reactions (splitting)

22. Sleep deprivation or irregular sleeping patterns

23. Voice changing

24. “Acting out”

25. Extreme curiosity and interest  

26. Dependency

27. Sarcasm

28. Promiscuity

29. Mimicking/mirroring

30. Flashbacks

31.
Nightmares  

32. Difficulty processing information

33. Difficulty focusing and concentrating and poor attention span

34. Consistent/radical change of appearance

35. Certain feelings of fear, negativity, or rejection of authority/people of “high importance” in their mind.

36. Alluring/seductive behavior

37. Extreme need for acceptance

38. A need to prove themselves over and over as identity may be graded on a scale of what was done that very day

39. Extreme apathy, boredom, dullness, and indifference

40. ‘Flat affect”- lack of emotional reactivity and inability to express/show emotions due to depression, absence of emotional response

41. Creative thinking

42. Studies show some are able to read others easily from such hypersensitivity; however, often mistaking neutrality as anger probably as a result of symptoms


43. Isolation

44. Defensive


45. Magical thinking (assumed correlation, interconnection, etc)

46. Fantasizing

47. Panic attacks

48. Anxiety Attacks


49. Hypersensitivity to caffeine, alcohol, some sugars and foods. Often described as being “allergic” to such things as it causes reactions from hypersensitivity and symptoms.

50. Memory lapses- a result of dissociation, intense reactions, etc

51. Extreme perfectionism

52. Avoidance

53. Euphoric reactions

54. Detachment

55.
Avoidance of eye contact

56. Difficulty transitioning with life aspects such as changes to plans and arrangements

57. Difficulty with awareness

58. Sensitivity to senses- light, sounds, temperatures, etc- from hypersensitivity  

59. Resistance

60. Difficulty with decision making, poor decisions, and/or indecisiveness, insecurity

61. Difficulty completing tasks

62.Rapid” or excessive speech

63. Restlessness, difficulty relaxing, feelings of “being on edge.”

64. Extreme sense of security, comfort, and connection with animals/nature and inanimate objects such as transitional objects

65. Undermining a goal, success, or relationship

66. Often occurs with PMDD (Premenstrual dysphoric disorder) or worse reactions to menstrual cycles because of the hypersensitive and systematic changes

67. Extreme difficulty and lack of object consistency (inability to recall that people or objects are ‘still there,’ consistent, and reliable when they are not currently being physically seen/there and difficulty maintaining these feelings

68. Flight of ideas, racing thoughts, rapid thought patterns

69. Brief remission of symptoms in response to certain events (positive reactions)

70. Disrupted or delayed life aspects- education, relationships, jobs, etc

No particular order. If you may need a source, example, description/explanation for more understanding for any of these, feel free to ask :)
