It is not okay to guilt trip someone, self-harm bait, or suicide bait others for attention/rp/free art/be your friend/etc.
I’m addressing this not only for short term but also long term observations and personal interactions. I have seen several people making self-harm threats in order to make people interact with them, give them pity and sympathy, and in some cases the person that upset them is then attacked by the guilt trippers friends.
The real world is hard a cruel. In fact I’m pretty sure the majority within fandom communities knows this better than anyone else. We all come from different walks in life, with different values and backgrounds, and maybe not all of us have a safe place to go irl.
BUT THIS DOES NOT EXCUSE BEHAVIOR SUCH AS GUILT TRIPPING AND SELF-HARM THREATS.
“But I’m too scared to tell anyone/no one will care if I tell.” Suck it up. March your ass to a trusting relative, a parent of a friend, your parents, your church, your coach or adult leader of your club, counselor at your school. Call a help-hotline! They’re free!!! Hell I went to a doctor and was recommended to a counselor for 6 free sessions. And guess what? My college offered the same thing! And I know several other people from various states across the US THAT ALSO GOT THE FIRST FEW SESSIONS FREE.
No one here is responsible for you. Everyone here has their own difficulties and problems in life. Don’t try to force your problems on others and make strangers pity you. 90% of the time they’re going to tell you to seek professional help, because they cannot mentally or emotionally handle someone else’s baggage, especially with depression and suicidal thoughts.
Don’t Focus On Whether Or Not Someone Likes You Instead of being concerned about whether someone likes you and focusing on how your heart pounds and if you feel butterflies when you’re around them, wonder instead whether you get excited because your chemistry is reacting to meeting another dysfunctional person. Ask yourself instead, does this person have most, if not all, of the qualities you want in a relationship?
Be Your Own Best Friend One reason why people stay in unhealthy relationships is the fear of being alone. One reason for this is because you haven’t developed a best-friend relationship with yourself. Try to reach a place where you actually enjoy your own company. And if that doesn’t help, know that being alone is healthier and preferable to being in an unhealthy relationship filled with hostile drama.
Stop Expecting Someone Else To Fix Your Problems You are responsible for whatever needs fixing in your life, your financial debts, your career, taking care of your body and so forth, not your partner, your best friend or your parents. You will feel much better about yourself and your new confidence will be very attractive.
Know Your Boundaries And Stick To Them We are constantly sending out hints to other people about how we want to be treated. These are called “boundaries,” meaning your deal breakers for what you will and won’t accept. How much importance you attach to honesty, respect, and reliability are just as important as personal space, time alone, or how much physical affection or romance you require. When you uphold your boundaries, you don’t allow others to manipulate, guilt, or control you, and your inner self will thank you
Trust Your Inner Warning Signals Your body is innately sensitive to other people’s energies and intentions. Check your own inner warning signals, which will alert you that you’re with a toxic or drama-addicted person. Some warning signals you may be getting are:
- You feel used, because it’s a one-sided relationship, with you doing all the giving - You feel guilty, like you owe the person something - You feel angry at him or her and at yourself - After the person leaves, you feel drained and tired - You have a desire to avoid the person.
Trust your intuition here. These feelings won’t be present in a healthy relationship.
Write A Letter To The Person You’re Upset With Even healthy relationships can hit a rocky patch from time to time. At times like these, it often helps to write a letter to the person you’re upset with. Pour out your feelings, and hold nothing back. Then, in a ceremonious way, burn the letter. You can also send a more restrained version of the letter to the person, after waiting a day or two for a cooling-off period. This way, your letter will reflect your ongoing feelings instead of reactive emotions. It can be the starting point for a mutually beneficial conversation that will get you back on track.
Just Say No To Guilt Based Requests If you feel you are being manipulated and have no choice to comply, stand firm. They might cry, threaten to hurt themselves, say that no one loves them, or remind you of the times that they helped you. But by telling guilt-trippers no without guilt or excuses, they will either find another victim to harass or will realize that these methods aren’t healthy or effective.
Don’t Walk On Eggshells Around Angry People If someone displays their anger in a physical way, LEAVE IMMEDIATELY. However, if it is someone who just gets mad at the slightest provocation but rarely takes responsibility themselves, then release the fantasy that you will find the winning combination that will finally make them happy and peaceful. They most likely will need professional therapy. Tip-toeing around until they calm down doesn’t help anyone.
Stand Your Ground Accusatory people are always looking for a fight, tell them firmly that they are mistaken in their accusations but do not engage in an argument or wander off-topic. Do not engage in blaming wars or you will get into an unending battle.
Stop Trying To Rescue Victim-Martyr Types Since whatever advice you suggest will most likely be met with “I’ve already tried that, it doesn’t work.” It is best not to invest a lot of time into trying to provide a solution to their problem. Once victim-martyrs sense that you are out of ideas to help, they will move on to bending someone else’s ear about their current problem.
Remove Yourself From A Relationship When You Notice A Red Flag Take your time to get to know someone before you fully commit to a relationship. At the first red-flag, such as not honoring a commitment, or showing a lack of respect; extricate yourself from the relationship immediately before getting any more involved.
As a compassionate, openhearted soul, you want to give. It’s in your nature to care for others and ensure their health and happiness. Occasionally others may take advantage of your kindness which is why it is so important to enforce your boundaries in all of your relationships.
It may feel uncomfortable for you to put these rules into effect, it might feel like you are placing conditions on how you will help people, but if you refuse to do so, you’ll deplete your own energy reserves very quickly. It all boils down to respect. If the people in your life truly care about you, they’ll respect your decisions.
Mars is considered to be in “fall” when it’s placed in Cancer. This is due to Mars being representative of the solider who strays far from home onto the battlefield and Mars in Cancer prefers to stay in the comfort of their home and possibly fend from there. Mars in Cancer natives are easily provoked and are quite sensitive to even the slightest raise of voice. They are extremely defensive and protective of even the smallest things that others are not phased by. Mars in Cancers generally avoid confrontations, but if they are angry with you they’re highly indirect about it. This is why a trait often associated with Mars in Cancer is ‘passive-aggressive’. When they’re angry, however, they get so consumed with rage that they can have messy displays of emotions. Like their fellow Water Mars signs, they are angry criers. Mars in Cancer can accidentally start arguments without even noticing. They are notorious for being manipulative and guilt-trippers.
Mars in Cancer may enjoy releasing all these emotions in bed. Both their emotions and sex life are intertwined together. Being in a relationship with their partner before having sex with them is important to them, but it’s not mandatory. They can have one night stands if they wanted to, but there is ALWAYS an emotional price. They cannot help that sex is an emotional journey to them. They want to be able to have a full body experience and connect with their partner on a deep emotional level; almost spiritual. Sex to them has to feel almost like “home”. This is in the sense that in order for sex to be pleasurable to them, they have to feel secure with you and trust you. Or else the experience won’t be enjoyable for either. They can be turned on by the thought of making a baby when making love. They have much emotional intensity and this is very obvious in bed. Despite their sensitivity, Mars in Cancer is a fierce fighter and extremely protective of their friends and family.
yes cause water mars are hard to play in general, especially scorpio and pisces mars because they are much more controlled emotionally than the explosive cancer mars
Water mars are naturally intuitive, and like their suns, naturally manipulative, pisces mars especially, they’re the guilt trippers, the victim card players, the type or manipulators that make YOU feel like the bad guy and make YOU feel bad for their wrong doings, victim card playing is the usual type of manipulating i see from pisces mars, but i see the other regular type of manipulating(Lying, blackmailing) alot too, I see alot with scorpio mars also.
Okay, I can do that. And I’m doing Duel Links as a theme cause you didn’t give me one and I’m playing it instead of unpacking. Also, this allows me to vent about Yugi’s reactions to losing to Yami Yugi in the game.
“So… Kaiba allowed YOU to be in the game, but I’m not allowed in it?” Yugi raised an eyebrow. “Talk about a dick move. This is because of me technically winning in our last duel, isn’t it? I know he’s still pissed off about that. Let it go, Kaiba! It’s been a few months, jeez!”
“Probably, but it is odd that he lists me as Yami Yugi. Why not just call me Atemu?” Atemu shrugged, winning another duel against a Charmer’s Gathering deck user. The ‘Yami’ card comes in handy sometimes, especially when used with Banner of Courage on magic using cards and fiends. “However, it is nice that he let you be an event player.”
Yugi scoffed, toying with his own version of the game as he laid across his boyfriend’s lap. “I guess. I wish I could duel as myself instead of dueling against myself. I come off as such a such a guilt tripper when I lose against you!” He pouted, he only dueled as ‘Yami Yugi’ against his game self three times since the event began and has since dueled as Jounouchi instead. Besides, he needed to level up Jounouchi anyway, he wanted the Rocket Warrior card.
Atemu blinked. “Wait, you guilt trip when you lose against me?”
The orchid eyed boy turned, looking up at the pharaoh. “You didn’t know? Wait, have you even dueled me yet?”
“…” Atemu glanced around before shaking his head. “No, I just… I’ve been nervous about it.”
“Cause I like dueling you in real life and I feel like you might not like me beating you in game?”
Yugi laughed a bit at this. “Atemu, it’s cool. I don’t mind if you duel against my game counterpart! You’re suppose to! Besides, you can get some pretty sweet cards from me when you do.” He winked. “So, give it a try, I should be on the field.”
He sat up, moving to sit besides Atemu as he looked at his phone screen. He watched his other self click on the little Yugi icon and saw himself pop up, saying something about how he had to beat Yami Yugi. Looks like he was a level forty, with a rock deck. He was going to be trouble.
Atemu quietly sat there with Yugi watching as his own game counterpart dueled his boyfriend’s game self. The game was a close call, Yugi used up all his Sphere Kuribohs and Atemu activated a Stop Defense, allowing for him to attack Yugi’s last line of defense with his powered up Black Magician Girl.
Yugi screamed on the phone screen, and Atemu’s breath hitched as he watched. Then the game Yugi said ‘Am I not good enough?’, making the former king clutch at his chest.
“What’s wrong?” Yugi asked, raising an eyebrow at the other’s actions.
“Aibou! I’m so sorry…! You ARE good enough! Why would Kaiba make you say that when you lose?! I’m going to Kaiba Corp right now to shove my boot up his ass for this!”
“Other Me! No! Come back here, it’s just a game! He’s still annoyed about when you did this during the Bakura event…!”
aggressive passive aggression. when they are upset, everything they touch becomes a weapon. slam the door even harder, i don't think the people ten streets down heard you clearly enough. it's best to let them cool down before confronting them about anything, should you need to.
careless words. it's not that they don't think before they speak, it's that they genuinely don't believe their words will affect you. when the damage is done, they often cannot - or will not - understand why what they said was hurtful, because it does not make sense to them in the scope of their world view.
ignoring you unintentionally. gemini are such quick thinkers that they sometimes can get carried away doing things they believe to be most important in that moment, leaving behind people and situations that might require their attention more than they think. a good part of the time, they don't even realize what's happened until someone brings it up, and it might be too late to apologize then.
selective memory. you may have been screaming at each other last night, but now they act like nothing happened. some cancers fail to realize that closure cannot come without talking about what transpired, and that sometimes apologies must be made. sitting on an ever-growing list of conflicts, no matter how quiet, will eventually affect you adversely. do not run.
empty exuberance. it's alright to have emotions - unsavory ones, as well. it's part of being human, and feeling jealous or unhappy with something in your life isn't a crime: don't act happy for the sake of others around you, because you are good at it, and people will believe you do not need them. friends should not only see you at your happiest; smiling all the time will only hurt everyone more in the long run. you are allowed to rely on another person, and to cry.
impartiality. a large part of the gross misconception that virgos are usually emotionless or somehow psychologically shallow stems from their talent with balancing the conflicting ideologies people in their life hold, all without seeming ruffled or altered by it at all. their ability to rationalize does not mean they cannot feel, however, and once their trust and good favor is broken, it is near-impossible to regain. choosing to withhold an opinion does not mean it doesn't exist. virgos know this well.
second chances. infuriatingly patient as they are, libras sometimes need a helpful nudge in the right direction when it comes to cutting ties with someone no longer healthy for them to be around. their tendency to believe the best of another person and to give the benefit of the doubt can work against them in these situations. though they do have their limits, it may take far too long to exhaust them.
concealment. this is different from leo's cheerful veil of security. despite being forthright and intense people, scorpios can be difficult to read, and they take great pains to conceal the fact that they can be sensitive and highly empathetic - certainty is a must if they wish to know someone, but this habit of hiding things can hinder connections that would have flourished otherwise.
indecision. the downside to being filled with energy, creative or otherwise, is that it can go misdirected. an unfulfilled or unhappy sagittarius can do an immense amount of harm both to themselves and others, especially if they're focused on the wrong things, or a cause that doesn't truly satisfy them. there are times when the correct decision is doing nothing at all. you don't have to be occupied or active to be worth something. reflect on yourself instead.
disregarding their own advice. even though capricorns have a very good idea of what everyone should be doing and when (and how, and how fast), their crippling sense of self-doubt often stops them from treating themselves like anyone else, and stalls their acquisition of the standards they wish to live up to. though they know what they should do, fear halts them. risk is a part of existing, and we must live with it.
blatant snubbery. a jilted aquarius, or at least one who perceives they've been insulted or somehow deprioritized, can turn on their built-in acid factor rather easily - doubly so if they're convinced they're in the complete right. good observational skills and an intuitive sense of what makes people tick can turn them into some of the most unpleasant guilt-trippers. it won't work every time. you'll lose someone to this if you aren't careful.
insight. it doesn't do to dismiss pisces out of hand as being an airyheaded dreamer with no grasp of reality. they are often the sharpest people in the room, though their easygoing nature and willingness to wear their heart on their sleeve makes others mistakenly believe it is easy to take advantage of them. their innate sense of emotion can make them very suited to identifying tells: they have the potential to be some of the best manipulators.
Anybody who is attacking Connor better fucking square up and talk to me.
First of all, get off anon. You are acting like a coward, if you want to hurt people I love, get off anon and fight me.
Second of all, how freaking dare you attack Connor. Especially calling him a guilt tripper.
Basically, if you are going to attack anyone I care about, I will fight you.
So @dustierhoades sent me a prompt off the mini-fic list for FShenko with “things you said under the stars and in the grass”. (So stoked for prompts you have no idea how much I LOVE YOU RIGHT NOW!!!) Okay. Going to be honest here. My first thought was “What the fuck am I supposed to write to that?” And then my second thought was “Oooh, I know”. Thus, the birth of “Phantom Heart”.
And yeah, okay, let’s all pretend I purposely ignore the “mini” in mini-fic and don’t just accidentally word-vomit into oblivion.
the hell are we doing, Kaidan?”
He snorts beside her on the grass,
glancing over to her. “You told me you’d
at least try it.”
Shepard stretches on the cool lawn
and looks from the stars overhead to his smiling face beside her. “I am.
This is me – trying. I am so full of try right now, you have no
He laughs, looking back up at the
stars. “Two minutes in and you’re
Scoffing, Shepard looks skyward as
well. The night is breezy but not cold,
and she can lie on the dewy grass of their backyard quite comfortably in her N7
sweats. Her toes wiggle in the
grass. “You know I can’t sit still for
He chuckles. “I’ve noticed.”
“And you say you and your father
used to do this all the time? Star-gazing
and all that?”
“God, you two were boring.”
“Hey,” he defends, gaze snapping
sideways to her, but the playful smirk betrays any censure in his voice. “I like to call it ‘contemplative’. Maybe even ‘philosophical.” His smirk blends into a grin.
She rolls her eyes, shifting next to
him so that their shoulders are pressed together. “’Contemplative’, ‘philosophical’, ‘boring’. What’s the difference?”
He nudges her shoulder, looking back
to the stars. “See if I ever share
anything with you again.”
“Oh don’t be like that,” she chides,
stuffing her hands into her sweatshirt pockets.
“Like a baby.”
“You’re a charmer, you know that?”
She beams. “It’s why you married me.”
“Yes, your winning personality is
what drove me to this madness called love.”
He throws a look her way, lips quirking up in an endearing taunt. “And I say ‘madness’ only because ‘insanity’
would imply that there’s actually a sane
way to love you somewhere out there.”
She smacks his arm, never looking
away from the night sky, and his responding laugh is warm in the cool air. “Well, this ‘winning’ personality won the
war, didn’t it?”
Kaidan shrugs in the grass. “Can’t argue with that.”
A/N: How would the boys be during a fight with you?
Jackson would try his hardest not to lose his temper with you. He never wants to hurt a lady, and you being one of the most important women in his life (next to his mom) he never wants to yell at you badly. He would cut you off a lot as you were arguing though, and try to get you to see his point, regardless of your point. He would never want to end a night/day fighting. You would sit down and work it out regardless of the time. You never went to bed angry at each other and on the rare occasions you did, you always ended up cuddling each other in your sleep anyways.
If JB were mad at you about something, he would hint that he’s mad until you finally call him out on being mad. Once you did, he’d erupt. So used to leading and being the one whose voice is the most heard, he would be infuriated if you tried to interrupt him or convince him of his wrongs. It would take a long conversation for him to see reason, but once he does, he is apologetic. He would tell you he’s sorry…but deep down he would still be thinking hes right.
Jinyoung would try his hardest to understand your opinions or point of view. But, if he got frustrated enough, he would get cold and short. He would just let you get all of your stuff out, but when it came time for him to talk, he would keep his feelings to himself. On the off occasions that he does let his feelings loose, he is screaming and crying, emotional. He would never want to make you feel sad or belittle you, and so he would resolve things as quickly as possible. He would be the one to say he’s wrong if it meant that he could just hug you and forget you were even fighting in the first place.
He’d be a lot like Junior, Except when he is mad or upset, he’d clam up. He would let you yell and scream, zoning off as you do. He would give you the cold shoulder if he were pissed off enough. If you were angry or mad, he would refuse to talk to you until you’ve calmed down. He does not like yelling. He would want to calmly talk things out. He would express his feelings quietly, and timid, and if he felt like he was getting too emotional, he would just bottle it up again. On some occasions, he is so overwhelmed, he cries. He would get bored with fighting though, wanting to be spending his time with you doing anything but. He would employ the Lily and Marshall method from How I Met Your Mother where they “pause” a fight and forget about arguing for a period of time before “unpausing” and dealing with it.
You would have to spell out the exact reasons why you’re mad or upset with him. It would take a while for him to realize that he’s done something wrong, just because he is so focused on making you happy, he doesn’t understand the concept of doing something that would warrant you being unhappy. If you ended up fighting about something, he would listen to you, but he wouldn’t believe what you’re saying, thinking that what he has done was not that bad, or worthy of an argument. Regardless of how he felt about he argument, he would try and rectify it as fast as he can. He would make you a mix tape with songs on it that express how he is feeling because he feels he can better communicate through music.
Yugyeom would love a good argument. He would stay up for hours, yelling back and forth. He was just so stubborn, he would rarely give in. Depending on the kind of argument, he would either be rage yelling with anger, or cry yelling. He would be exhausted after some time though, and the only thing he would want is you. He would then employ his looks, trying to get you to forgive him by being cute and trying to forget the fight even happened at all.
Bambam would taunt you during a fight, trying to cut as low as possible. He would pull out all the receipts, determined to prove you wrong, even when you weren’t. He would be relentless in his views, regardless of yours. He would be the one to storm out, angry and leave you, not returning or for a while. And when he does return, he would still want to rehash everything. He would be the biggest guilt tripper ever, trying to make you feel bad, turning the argument around to make you the bad guy. When he got bored with arguing, he would result in trying to joke about it all.

Here’s an extra for you lovely people, ‘cause I love Pokémon a lot ok:
Tadashi pouted and held out the yellow costume, waving it in front of his brother’s face. “C’mon, it’s only one day - not even. Like, half the day.”
”No,“ Hiro reiterated, arms crossing as he spun on his heel to glare at his brother. "I’m not dressing up as Pikachu for your stupid costume party.”
“It’s not a costume party, Hiro,” Tadashi chuckled, rolling his eyes. “It’s just a cosplay I promised Honey Lemon. I owe her a picture for covering me that one time I had to slip away from the lab because someone went botfighting and bit off more than he could chew.”
The teen looked down at the floor and scowled. That night had been pretty rough…
Hiro shuffled nervously and scuffed his foot on the wood flooring of their bedroom. “… Fine,” he mumbled, arms uncrossing and hands clenching at his sides. “But only one picture! That’s it! No more! Nada! Zilch! Zero!”
Tadashi smiled and handed him the bright yellow kigurumi, stifling his laughter behind a fist.

“He’s okay, Kate,” Castle murmurs, letting his
hand drop from the steering wheel to touch her thigh. He gives her leg a squeeze,
brushing his fingers over the fabric of her jeans, but it’s meant to comfort
her instead of tease. “Take a look and see for yourself.”
Her head shakes against the sedan’s high headrest. “If
I look back, it’ll just get him going again. The last thing we need is for him
to get crazy in traffic like this.”
Her husband hums, slipping his hand over her knee.
“That’s true. He is a mommy’s boy. A little attention goes a long
She sighs. “Castle.”
“Well it’s true. He is. I’ve tried to deny it, but I
think our son likes you more than he likes me.”
“He’s not – ” she cuts herself off, refusing to
rise to the bait. They’ve been having this conversation for weeks and each time
they get nowhere. Better to just leave it be.
“Don’t you, Royal?” he coos. “You like Mommy
more than you like me. It’s okay, I’m not offended anymore. I mean, I know I was the one to suggest we bring you
home with us when Mommy was originally opposed, but…”
Kate rolls her eyes. “Yes, great guilt-tripper, we see
