As a little, you don’t have to pretend to not know things.
As a little you can draw pictures of art pieces from the Hellenistic or Renaissance eras
As a little you can tell your caregiver facts about bug activity
As a little you can use “big” words
Age regression doesn’t equate loss of intelligence!
If you choose to not do these things it’s perfectly fine
But as a little I felt pressured to act “dumb” in my little space to mimic my age,
But truth is I can still act like a child and retain my intelligence.
I have yet to see a post addressing this and I just wanted to rant 💕.
Age regression doesn’t mean you have to lose your talent
the boys with an S/O who
worries about e v e r y t h i n g
This has probably been one of my favourite asks to write. I hope you like it!
The sight of you stressing
over every minor occurrence concerns him greatly
He always is wary about the
things happening around the two of you, trying to figure out exactly what you’re
He attempts to find any
patterns or similarities between the things he constantly finds you worrying about
This is so he’ll have a
greater understanding of what is going on with you
And so he can help you or
find you somebody who can
More than anything, he
wants to know that you’re happy
You are his top priority
whenever you both go out together
Making sure you aren’t
stressing about the 2 seconds you spent fumbling over your purse at the shop
counter, things like that
His presence is reassuring
and gives you a good boost of confidence
Although he still finds you
worrying over little things every now and then, he still thinks you’re the
extremely beautiful s/o he first fell in love with.
He’s pretty surprised, to
“I’m so sorry I didn’t
realise sooner, s/o…”
He can’t help but blame
himself a little bit
Maybe if he had connected the dots earlier he would have been able to help you before it had gotten this bad, he
You tell him you’ve been
like this since you were a lot younger and that it wasn’t because of him, at
He’s really protective of
If he notices you getting
stressed out he’s always your voice of reason, telling you not to worry and
reassuring you that you’re fine, that everything is fine
Whenever you need him, he
gives you warm, reassuring hugs
He holds your hand a lot
Amami takes every
opportunity he gets to show you that he loves you!
He doesn’t want you
worrying that he’ll leave you!! That’ll never happen!
You’re his s/o and he’ll do
anything to make sure you’re alright.
He feels so guilty
“I-Is it because I
tease you so much?!”
The teasing hadn’t been a
part of it - you knew Ouma was just the sort of person who liked to tease
others, you were used to it
He doesn’t want to make you
feel weird or alienated from the others, so he still teases you - he just
steers clear of any insecurities or things that are a little too real
Ouma is a lot more
protective when the two of you go out in public, and while it warms your heart
that he’s doing this for you, it does give you a good laugh watching him do his
best at protecting you from so called “dangers”
But there are times when he
really comes through for you
For example, when you’re
worried about screwing up your order at a restaurant
“I’ll order the food
for us - sit tight, s/o!”
He doesn’t mind doing any
of this for you - as long as you’re happy, he’s happy
When you’re both at home
and you find yourself stressing over work, he’ll drag you away from your computer
to play video games or watch a movie with him to distract you
It’s effective - after an
hour or so of time with Ouma, you always feel energised and much better about
Saihara understands what
you’re going through
You both know how much he
worries over things
And how low his
self-confidence can get
You both are each other’s
The two of you are always
saying how much you love each other
You both hold hands a
After a long day you both
just sit on the couch and cuddle and talk about little things that have been on
your mind or causing each of you any stress
You both agree that
vocalising your problems and what worries you helps, so you both do that
whenever something comes up
It does work really well -
Saihara and you worry less and less every day!
You’re both incredibly
grateful for each other in your lives
Without Saihara, you
wouldn’t be the person you are now!
Never fear, Momota is
The boy is always there for
you, stressing out or not
It’s as if he has special
s/o senses that activate whenever you’re stressed
Seriously, he can always
tell when you’re in need of some awesome hugs or reassuring pecks on the cheek
And if those don’t work,
which is rare, he tries a more serious approach
In his serious approach he
takes you aside from the group if you’re out, and if you’re at home he’ll just
hold you in his warm embrace
He somehow always has a
mini motivational speech prepared for you if it gets serious
The speeches themselves are
overall nice when you get them, but what motivates you most from them is the
fact that Kaito is sweet enough to even do something like that
It sometimes saddens Kaito
that someone as cool and funny as you worries about so many things so often
He feels really bad
So along with all those
other things he does to stop you from worrying, he showers you with compliments
It’s clear that this boy
loves you, and you love him too!
Kiibo is like your own
personal cheer squad!
“There is nothing to
worry about as long as I am here with you, s/o!”
He encourages you to do
anything you want, and that there is no use in worrying!
It saddens him whenever he
finds you stressing over every small thing that happens…
He reminds everyone to be
mindful of what they say when they’re speaking to you
The boy doesn’t want you to
Whenever he notices you
worrying when the two of you are out with friends, he always rubs your shoulder
and tells you he loves you!
He doesn’t leave your side
If you’re in private he’ll
give you lots of kisses!
He hopes that you will one
day overcome this and that you won’t worry so much anymore!
But he’s still extremely
happy to help you!
And to be your boyfriend!
Someone as beautiful and
caring as Gonta’s s/o worries??
At first, Gonta doesn’t
But that doesn’t stop him
from trying his absolute best to make sure you’re 100% happy and calm whenever
you’re both out together, group setting or not
His first attempt at making
you feel better after finding out was when you were both at an outdoor mall
His strategy was to show
you different bugs or creatures
“Looking at bugs is
the best way to calm Gonta down, s/o! Maybe it will work for you, too!!”
When you heard that, you
slap a palm to your face - that’s not how it works…
But you let him try, and to
your surprise, it worked extremely well!
He brought you over to some
of the plants and in the most gentle and soft voice, told you a few facts about
all of the bugs you could see until you felt better
You worry a lot less
frequently than you used to with Gonta as your boyfriend
Even when he isn’t
physically with you at the time, his gentle voice still encourages you in your
Someone as incredible as
you has nothing to worry about…
It pains him
whenever he catches you in your room with your head in your hands
He knows all too well
He’s been there before
You don’t deserve to be
He gives you lots of kisses
Anything to show you he
loves you with all his heart
He never hesitates to help
you with anything you are struggling with or stressing over
He always asks you if
You’re a priority for him,
everything else can wait
He’s really good to talk
and rant to when there’s something you just have to get off your chest
Hoshi is a great listener and
boyfriend and you appreciate him so much
Eight-year-old Aidan was scowling deeply, his caterpillar eyebrows making a v shape in his still rounded babyface. He was a year younger, and they were carbon copies of each other; the same untamed, charcoal black hair. Same dark eyes that wouldn’t tell much on their own. Unlike his big sister, Aidan wore his feelings all over his face; every wrinkle of his nose or movement of his mouth amplified whatever feelings were driving the words being spoken.
“Who wants to know?” he said. It was immediately clear he was ready to stick up for the sibling in question. The self-same sister was presently slightly behind her brother, one hand clasped in his own grubby palm.
“She does the best voices when we read together,” he boasted, small stature trying to rise higher,”She can climb anythin’, I seen it, Alcide lost a bet tryin’ to prove she couldn’t. He had to eat a toad and he chickened out.” There’s a snort of laughter from behind him, and the thump of a hand on his back to stop. It only seemed to encourage him.
“He dared her to eat a beetle once ‘cause he was feelin’ sore about it, and she did. Even if it did taste like this.” He scrunched his face up into a look of absolute disgust. “She’s good at findin’ things. Mum says if it weren’t for her none of us would have a shirt with a full set of buttons.”
“Mum likes to tell tall tales and you know it,” Honoura replied, with a hiss, and right before Aidan could open his mouth again, she gave him a rough shove and darted off, the loud declaration of “You’re it!” ringing through the trees.
i still need to find a faster way to distinguish between good, healthy impulses and “reacting to still being awake at 2 am by grabbing your phone, lying back on your bed, and extensively googling facts about bed bug infestations”
do you know how many different things can feel like bed bugs crawling on your skin if you are paranoid and sleep-deprived enough?
hint: literally everything, including nothing at all
aaaa hey darien! omg yes… domestic ushiten is my favorite so I hope it’s ok i went that route! ;u; (thank you for asking btw!!)
Ushijima does most of the shopping for the two of them. This is mostly because Tendou is so easily sidetracked when he’s shopping, and ends up coming home with a lot of things they don’t need, minus the things they do need.
If the two find a bug or spider in their apartment, their first instinct is never to kill it. If it’s harmless, they’ll spend a while just watching it crawl across the floor/wall or flying around the room, while Ushi, who has a decent knowledge of bugs, will let Tendou know random facts about the bug. If the bug does pose some kind of threat, they’ll do their best to catch it and release it outside.
Ushijima loves mornings, and has no issues waking up early, however Tendou is the complete opposite and takes ages to fully wake up. Without fail though, once he does wake up, Ushi has breakfast waiting for him on the table.
Tendou falls in love with a border terrier at a pet store, and instantly brings it home, claiming that it reminded him of Ushijima. Ushi would probably scold him a little bit, telling him he should have thought about the adoption first, but he wouldn’t make Tendou return the dog.
Similarly, Ushijima sees a crested gecko in a pet store and instantly brings it home because it reminds him of Tendou, who is completely thrilled. They’re both very good with animals, and even though they were impulse adoptions, both are perfect additions to their little home.
Tendou does most of the decorating in the apartment, which is really just his vast collection of figures and a bunch of posters from his favorite animes/mangas and video games. Ushijima doesn’t mind this, as long as he has spots to put a couple plants in every single room. Their apartment isn’t exactly cohesive, but it feels personal, like home, and reminds them of each other, and that’s all they really care about.
Ushijima is scary good at remembering every single anniversary of every little thing in their relationship, without even having to mark it on a calendar. Tendou isn’t the best at this, but that doesn’t seem to bother Ushijima at all since he himself has no issues.
They spend most of their free time together watching TV, which ends up either being documentaries about really random things (Tendou will happily listen to Ushi when he continues to talk about the documentaries’ subjects even after they’ve ended hours before), or binge-watching some anime that Tendou is really excited about (Tendou is thrilled with how much attention Ushi pays to the shows, and how he’ll intently listen to all his excited, fast-paced talking about the anime, without fail). They both just really, really enjoy listening to each other talk about something they’re passionate about.
Sometimes, Tendou will suggest a horror film. Ushi isn’t at all bothered or fazed by these movies, but Tendou, who’s jumpy and tense the entire time, likes to find every excuse he can to cuddle up against Ushi (not that he needs an excuse, both love cuddling up on the couch and do it quite often)
The thing that bothers me most about the fake geek girl thing is do you know how many times I have watched a tv show where two men are at a bar and they literally spend so much time fabricating their lives to make themselves more appealing for the sole purpose of getting laid? Like, for some reason men are encouraged to make themselves seem better even if it’s a blatant lie while women are belittled and accused of lying about their interests all the time????
OK but honestly I am really struggling with reconciling Lexa having black blood with the entire rest of the show’s mythology and we need to discuss this, Tumblr, I have Concerns.
The whole series has been based very strongly in a fairly realistic world with reasonably realistic human physiology (within reason/taking some huge narrative liberties, lol @ Abby’s magical surgeries/cauterizing wounds to prevent infection omg). Like, even the whole Mountain Men/Grounder blood/Sky Person blood thing last season was at least vaguely biologically plausible? But I just - this is my line. This is my line and I need to be really exasperated about it for a hot second IT’S PROBLEMATIC.
So, the Nightbloods bleed black, which means they would have to be born with a non-heme molecule for oxgyen carrying. It would also have to not be fatal to have this genetic variant, and this variant would have to be a molecule that is contained in a normal human diet, oxidizes black (current best candidates: lead??, manganese?) and somehow confers enough of an advantage that it’s more efficient than heme (but not so efficient that it’s fatal), but not so much of a survival advantage that it becomes a universally dominant trait, otherwise it wouldn’t be a rarity.
But then - BUT THEN. Let’s say it developed through ~Powerful Radiation Magic and this is a genetic mutation that’s been conferred over the years since the war. It started with the first Commander, how many generations has that been? I mean, obviously a Commander has a shorter lifespan than the average human, but even so it hasn’t been that long, and it’s improbable that the mutation happened randomly so often in such a small geographic area, especially when nobody is ever pregnant/the fertility rate & newborn survival rate seems fairly low. I just. I JUST, you guys.
I have lot of questions, is what I am saying, and I do not expect the show to actually answer them, but it is bugging the shit out of me and I need to share because THIS IS IMPORTANT. If the show ever chose to include, say, a scene outlining how the fuck this is possible (aside from ~powerful radiation magic~) instead of another scene about how martial law is awesome, I’d super appreciate that.
