You know what, Booth and Brennan will always be my #1 otp because they gave me so much as a couple. I mean, I’m not talking about sex or smut because that’s fanfiction material (like you go girl, want to see your fave ship bang on a piano? go and read that !!!! that’s what that website is for) but everything else. The ‘platonic’ aspect of their relationship has always been the best part of their dynamic to me, but they were still able to overcome that phase and be a family. This being said, that original dynamic has never been compromized, not to me at least, because when it comes to the important stuff, Booth and Brennan are still partners first, they are still the people they would give up their life for, they would fight for each other. While the majority of other ships kinda change once they get together. Booth and Brennan never completely changed, so much that people complain because they’d rather have them being romantic the 100% of the time. I don’t. Also, it’s the little things that matter to me, like it might sound stupid, but I find it extremely adorable and precious that Brennan knows Booth by knowing his injuries. Every time something happens, she’s able to compare factures and other stuff to Booth’s. And that’s so IC, that’s something I really want to see because it’s them. And it’s been this way since she first found out about his past in 1x15 and it never changed. She imagined him on that autopsy table in 11x01 by looking at the bones, just like it happened on 12x04 with Aldo and in other many occasions. Brennan saying like I know that because of your brain tumor. She knows his brain scans. YAAAS. Give me this stuff. Give me Booth and Brennan that can’t sleep without each other at night when one of them is struggling with something, give me them talking about taking someone’s life and carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders. Give me them hurting each other to save each other. They would never cheat on each other or hurt each other because they want to. They only do it because it’s the only way. Yaas. Screw sex, just give me this stuff.

-All in all, it’s not a bad way to live
A and B are laying on the couch together. B on their back and A with their head on B's belly. A is sleeping peacefully until B's stomach growls loudly in their ear. A wakes up asks B if they're hungry. B opens their mouth to answer but their empty stomach answers for them with another impressive gurgle. A pats B's gut and tells them lovingly how cute it is how loud their belly is and gets B some food.
Yes oh my gosh this is so adorable you’re killing me
I was wondering if you could explain what you meant by "children have a creep o meter"? I'm a radfem and a csa survivor that was "complicit in my own abuse"(I hate saying that) but at the same time I knew something was off about the situation
What I meant by that is that bottom line, children are still human, and therefore human social interaction is innate. Even though children are developing, and there are aspects of interpersonal communication that children need to learn and that children may not know how to articulate complex ideas, that doesn’t mean children don’t know when something is wrong in a conversation, social situation, or environment.
So when an adult violates a social expectation in a child, of course their hairs raise and they put themselves on alert. This is normal human behavior, and children have to learn how to grow into adults but they don’t have to learn how to be human.
Interpersonal interactions between an adult and a child are just as complex as between two adults. So even if a child isn’t aware of it, they don’t give their trust and respect freely just like any adult. They have their boundaries, expectations, instincts, etc. So a child may know right away if they trust or don’t trust a person and they may not know right away just like an adult, because it depends on what that person says and does and what that child’s expectations are. Children can get gut feelings, for example, but the younger they are the harder it is for them to understand a) what a gut feeling is b) why they are getting it c) how to explain it. This comes with growth and maturity and experience, i.e. growing up!
So if you’re standing in line at the grocery store with your mom or dad, and then this stranger gets in line with you and stands maybe a centimeter too close (as adults know there is a socially accepted amount of personal space in any given situation), and isn’t looking at you but doesn’t seem to be not looking at you (as adults know, you can tell when someone is deliberately not looking at you, because they are paying attention in other ways like the corner of their eyes), and when you try to move away they seem to find away to inch closer (as adults know, socially acknowledging your discomfort by continuing to do the thing that makes you uncomfortable to react the way you did in the first place), you will get red alarms in your head.
Unfortunately, this can be very confusing for children because again, they don’t know how to articulate it to themselves.
That’s where the idea of grooming comes from. Adults will groom their child victims by having that social upper hand. That adult in line knows what he’s doing and knows how to explain it. He’s an adult! When you cause that confusion in children and then can about face and help qualm their confusion by having an explanation, a child will start to trust you and start to question their instincts. The explanation is of course usually wrong or at least a stretch of the truth in favor of what the abuser wants, which is access to the child. And it doesn’t have to always come from being uncomfortable, an abuser can be very affable to a child and the child likes the special attention. Who doesn’t like special attention? An adult knows how to replicate the experience in feeling like you’re connecting on a deep and emotional level like you do when you start a knew serious relationship because they are adults and have lived through things the child hasn’t. The giddiness of catching strong romantic and attractive feelings is also confusing to children, because it feels good and they don’t know what is happening. Abusers will have the explanation: “I think you’re really special, have this gift,” i.e. I want to be your “boyfriend.”
That’s why there’s no such thing as a non offending pedophile. Your socialization and experiences and beliefs effect your unintentional communication as much as your intentional communication. You don’t fantasize about violating children at home and then go out in public and know how to turn it off. You could never lay a hand on a child, and you could tell yourself you will not interact with children and be conscientious of all your actions and words always, but that’s just simply not possible. Pedophiles will stand in grocery lines absent mindedly sometimes. That’s what people do. And they will do something in some of those times that will ping a child nearby.
You were absolutely not complicit in your abuse. You were groomed, and that’s not your fault. You are a survivor, and your abuser can rot in hell by my hands if I could do that for you.
i begged for It, i cried for It,
i screamed and yearned and died for
and when It came to me
i touched It so gently
and It ate me alive
i ate It alive! i swallowed It whole!
i do not let anything close enough
to put Me in Its mouth
i grasp at honey and babysweet
I Take My Drugs Of Choice!
every unsullied sweetheart made me cry
My guts right out.
to b so. to b empty of ache. to b flower filled.
to crawl into the mouths of everyone u love.
U CRAWLED INTO MY MOUTH AND I AM GOING TO BITE
ANGRY THINGS HAVE TEETH AND TEETH ARE MADE TO BE USED AND I AM MADE TO BE USED
but every table turns u didnt know. It didnt know.
i lie in the mouth of the goddess and i give her my offerings
of dry milk and powder and empty bottles
& i kiss her tongue where i lie
& i say to her
O Mother tell me where to go.
now that i have been eaten alive
O Mother tell me how–
and she spits on me so careful
and says sweet thing sweet girl sweet pain.
U must not get lost in me.
And i say what do i get lost in then?
she moistens her lips and she shows me
the mouth that ate me
and she says here
is what u do.
so i bite into the orange
and i take the sweetness of it
nd wear it like a disguise before the mouth
and i get close to It
and i caress It
and i let it
crawl into my mouth
warm orange & safety
and i learn It
and i learn that i have not known
until It lay on my tongue
and if i swallow it up and destroy it
i will never know
one of my favorite things is Character A and Character B having feelings for each other, but utterly denying it. But something terrible happens to Character B and Character A realizes they could have lost their chance to say anything at all and they spill their guts out to Character B complete with a tear filled “i love you” from both.
You can do tell when it’s a Sunday for me because I can put so much more effort into my meals and make it actually look yummy.
Breakfast: Green smoothie (check my page as I posted recipe earlier)
Lunch: Vegan roast! Rosemary sausages, all the veg, roasties, stuffing and mints sauce!
Dinner: Cold autumn nights call for spiced pumpkin soup 🍁🍂 I sort of improvised with the recipe as I could not find a recipe online that was a) vegan and b) going to give me the flavour I wanted! I’m glad I went with my gut as this was b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l. Message me, comment or post in my ask box for the recipe! Oh and I also whipped up some healthy homemade rosemary bread.
