Wanting to talk to someone about your obsessions because they’re freaking you the fuck out, but not being able to because you know they’re ridiculous, you know it’s not logical, you know they’ll tell you to just stop thinking about it.
I can’t. That’s basically the definition of the diagnosis.
DON’T DRINK ON PLAYGROUNDS!! AND IF YOU DO, DON’T FUCKING SMASH THE BOTTLES AND GET GLASS EVERYWHERE!!
Playgrounds are for small children to play on, not for your dumb asses to get drunk on. I know that teenagers like to rebel, and drinking is fun, but for fuck’s sake. It’s a playground. I don’t care if you don’t have anywhere else to go. Or here’s a concept, you don’t actually need to drink. But if you’re going to (unnecessary), be a civilized person and throw your bottles away, don’t fucking smash them.
Kids play at playgrounds. And kids are clumsy. They trip. They fall. They run around in bare feet. They play in the sand. They don’t pay attention. And the last thing I want to be doing is digging shards of glass out of my child’s skin.
Behold this terrifying and mighty serpent! But all is not as it seems:
Check out the oak leaves in the foreground. They aren’t huge—this snake is TINY.
The glowing eyes are 100% the product of my flash. It actually has brown eyes.
The threatening pose is all bluff. This is a harmless Eastern gartersnake (Thamnophis sirtalis). Most likely, it had just eaten (possibly a worm or grasshopper), which made it slower and more vulnerable—and very very nervous. I have a long lens and was pretty far from the snake as it did its serpent impression. I took a couple snaps and backed away even more, and it fled.
I would be more scared of an angry chipmunk than this cute faker. It’s really too bad there isn’t an Oscar for snakes.
I read some stuff on my dash and the ever-ongoing issue of ‘you r homophobic if u don’t ship a gay ship’ and ‘Cana and Freed r canonically gay stop shipping them with a guy/gal’ is annoying me.
Just for the record, Fraxus is my OTP of OTPs and I personally think of Freed as bisexual with pref for men. Let me also say that Laxus is the only man I ship Freed with and I have many beautiful Freed x female ships, one of them being Mirafreed.
Now I’m still told I’m homophobic? That’s a bit ridiculous.
Neither Cana or Freed’s sexuality have been confirmed in canon. If you refer to the gay boob grabs or the Trimens panel in Freed’s case, that wasn’t even in the main story and just one single panel and nothing ever clearly confirmed that he couldn’t have interest in women. It would be the safest and most correct to say that both are bisexual for sure.
But even if he or Cana were canonically gay, that wouldn’t mean that they could never fall in love with the opposite sex. There are many cases in which straight people fell in love with sb of the same sex, or homosexual people who at some point fell in love with somebody of the opposite sex.
It’s homophobic not to ship something purely because it’s gay. Yea, that’s really homophobic. It’s also shitty to belitte possbilities or say oh nooo they HAVE to only be friends even though a same sex ship has legit a beautiful bond, many interactions, etc etc.
But let people ship what they want and no sexuality has ever been 100% clear in FT (apart form maybe Bob or maybe Sugar boy, I think he flirted with Gray?) and sexualities are labels only anyway. So please.
I got this damn “fun fur” yarn as a well meaning gift from a dear (non knitting or crocheting) friend a couple of years ago, and it’s just been sitting in my stash. I know this shit is a pain to work with, so I’ve been avoiding it, despite my love of its color.
Well, I need a vaguely personal gift for a work lunch/holiday party, and the girl whose name I drew happens to love green. So, instead of trying to buy something she may or may not like, I thought a quick scarf was in order.
Even large needles cannot get me through this project fast enough. I haaaaaaaate this stuff.
