on misguided self-preservation

i feel like i’ve denied myself so many tiny pleasures over the years because of a fear of something; either real or imagined, and almost always insignificant. here are some examples off the top of my head:

  • not wearing my favourite items of clothing for fear of spills and stains
  • not lighting candles for fear of the smoke detector going off
  • not wearing skirts/dresses for fear of the fabric revealing my underwear when bending
  • not writing in my journal for fear of someone finding and reading it
  • not spending time outdoors for fear of insects
  • not playing loud music and dancing for fear of my neighbours complaining about noise (and i don’t mean at odd hours of the night)
  • etc.

tiny constraints and rules to prevent embarassment and discomfort.
by themselves they seem inconsequential, but the pattern is unhealthy. all these “what ifs?” and their consequent reactions all chip a little away at our well-being each day.

what’s more, i’m not even talking about those that really harm daily function and mental health (those would require an entire post of their own). but it’s useful to start with these small codes of conduct and not underestimate their impact.

i can’t imagine i’m the only one who does (or has done) this, so on this summer evening i invite you to take some time for yourself to examine the ingrained habits, likes/dislikes and little rules you have made for yourself.
are some of them founded on avoidance? fear of embarassment? other fears? are you willing to break them?

The Disaster in Pink

Prompt:  Your stray red item turned my whites pink.
Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters: Lily Evans, Sirius Black, James Potter
Setting: Modern day all muggle AU
1,000 Words


Lily’s soft humming turned into an abrupt scream the moment she opened the washing machine’s hatch and saw the sea of pink.

“No!” she shrieked, diving in to pull out her wet laundry. “No!”

Every single white item of clothing – including her favourite cardigan and her cream sundress – had turned pale pink strongly reminiscent of candy floss.

“How the hell…?”

Lily was certain there had only been whites in her laundry basket. She was particular like that; Marlene wasn’t completely wrong to joke she had an “Overly meticulous Cow Disorder”.

But being careful hadn’t saved her clothes from their pink doom. Not that she had anything against pink – it just wasn’t her colour.

Her fingers scraped against the machine’s metal drum and pulled out a pair of bright red trunks that most definitely weren’t hers. Neither she nor Marlene were seeing anyone – there was no way men’s underwear could’ve got into her laundry basket. And even if they had, she would have noticed them when loading her clothes into the machine.

Frowning at the trunks, Lily came to the conclusion that whoever had done their laundry last had accidentally left them behind.

Gritting her teeth, Lily balled the red trunks in her fist and grabbed her laundry basket. She marched out to the corridor to inspect the board by the door to see who had reserved the laundry room before her. It took her a moment to decipher the careless scrawl of handwriting, but she managed.

“Potter,” she hissed, consulting next the list of flats. Fifth floor.

Lily could’ve taken the lift, but it was far more satisfying to stomp up the stairs, fuming with righteous anger over the sorry fate of her poor innocent clothes. By the time she reached the fifth floor, her arms were growing tired from the weight of her laundry and her breathing was coming heavy – but her indignation blazed brighter than ever. Her gaze flitted, inspecting each door until it zeroed in on the Potter standing next to Black on the door to her right.

Her lips forming a thin line, she crossed the landing and jabbed at the doorbell.

It only took some seconds but to Lily they felt more like minutes. Then the door opened, revealing a man wearing a band shirt whose black hair was tied in a bun and whose grey eyes were sparked with annoyance.

“What?” he barked as a greeting.

Her temper flaring at the rude welcome, Lily’s arm moved before any rational thought could catch up with the sudden impulse, flinging the wet underwear which he promptly caught – with his face.
