ToT for Shiranui-san, Shimada-san, and Hijikata-san: You all seem pretty sure of yourselves. Is there one particular area where you completely lack confidence?
“Eh, probably swordplay,” says Shiranui, shrugging. “Good thing I don’t need it anyway. Or maybe… comforting people,” he adds, narrowing his eyes thoughtfully. “Yeah, that might be better, actually. I’m only bad at swordplay because I never practice, but I’m seriously terrible at all that ‘there, there’ stuff.”
“Writing… anything other than official documents,” mutters Hijikata. “Enough said.”
Shimada, meanwhile, only blinks. “I seem sure of myself?” he asks, taken aback, and touches his fingers together nervously—unsure where to turn his eyes. “I’m sorry, but this is news to me…”
I can’t stand all these Showtime ads that I’m getting, tempting me to start my free trial so I can watch Twin Peaks.
Like I already wasn’t planning on it.
I AM NOT COMFORTABLE WITH A TV NETWORK EXPOSING ME LIKE THIS.
Like, they KNOW that the ONLY reason I would sign up for their service is to watch that show for free.
But you know what? I’m not gonna sign up yet. Bitch there are 18 episodes, the last of which will be released on the third of September. I refuse to sign up for your free trial until I can binge watch the WHOLE SEASON like the TRASH I AM.
You can put all those ads on you want on every single website that I visit from now until I’m typing in my email and password for you. You don’t know my restraint, Showtime. I gave up sex for nearly 8 months. And I fucking love sex. I moved to a new town in that time. I started a new job, went to a new school, met a lot of new people, and some of them were VERY ATTRACTIVE. I KNOW TEMPTATION AND I HAVE TOLD IT TO GO TO HELL.
AND I WILL BE DAMNED IF I CAVE IN AND SIGN UP FOR YOUR FREE TRIAL TO WATCH THIS SHOW UNTIL I CAN WATCH ALL 18 EPISODES.
I really, really, really, really hate it when people say that asexuals who masturbate are not asexual, but autosexual.
Autosexual is a term used to describe people who are sexually attracted to themselves.
Unless I’m looking in the mirror thinking, “Yeah, I’d hit that,” in a very literal, non-affirming sense, then I am not autosexual. I’m not all like, “Man, I just want to get down with myself, because I’m so into myself.”
It’s just one more way people say, “Asexuality isn’t real. You are incapable of labeling your own experience. I’m going to come up with a different one for you.”
Fact: Hunter X Hunter is still on hiatus because Togashi knows he would, at some point, have to continue Kurapika’s character arc, which meant inevitably killing off more Phantom Troupe members, and not even he wants that.
