Oh antis with their “Clarke cares about Bellamy just as a friend”. I always find it so strange and semi funny when people say Bellamy and Clarke are just platonic or that Clarke doesn’t love Bellamy. There’s literally nothing “just platonic” about them. The only reason why there’s even a ship war is because people see that Bellamy and Clarke are obviously not just platonic and that there is a very real possibility that they will get together. They are threatened. You only feel threatened when you SEE THE POSSIBILITY. Why even hide behind “they’re just friends” when you obviously see the potential for it to become more? And just for fun, humor me. Does Clarke act the same way around her other male friends the way she does with Bellamy? Does she care for them the way she cares for Bellamy? Does she rely on them like she does Bellamy? Does she hug them like she hugs Bellamy? Clarke hugged Monty in 2x16. It looked like two friends hugging. Then she shared a hug with Bellamy too but what did they have Clarke do in order to show how different her relationship is with Bellamy than her relationship with Monty? She kisses Bellamy. Does she hug ANYONE the way she hugs Bellamy? Does she freak out about them being in danger the way she freaks out about Bellamy? Are they her biggest weakness the way Bellamy is? Does she hold their hand like she does Bellamy’s? Does she nuzzle their hand like she does Bellamy’s? Does she stand together with them like she does with Bellamy? Does she find strength from them the way she finds it in Bellamy? Do people around Clarke see and comment on her relationship with her other male friends as they do her relationship with Bellamy? So.. how can you possibly say that Clarke acts and feels for her other male friends the same way she does Bellamy, when that’s not the case? You certainly don’t have to ship them if you don’t like them but pretending that Clarke loves Bellamy the same way she does every other male friend is just canonically wrong. Lxa stated in season two (!!) that Clarke cares about Bellamy more. Other characters have called out both of them for their love and devotion to each other. We have scripts that include several of the above as canonically correct. So again, I ask, in what world are Bellamy and Clarke just platonic or that Clarke doesn’t love him?
Recently I have been asked by a few people what dissociation feels like. While I believe that it can be different for all people who dissociate, here are my thoughts on dissociation from a personal perspective.
Dissociation can feel like you are on a completely different planet, but it can also cause you to be in a very hypervigilant state. These two paradigms make for an interesting match at times. Often I am not really sure if I am dissociating and/or switching.
Memory Loss: memory loss is an incredibly big sign for me, that I have been dissociating. For example, I lose things so often it isn’t funny. I find things in strange places. I find poems I can’t remember writing. I complete are that I can’t remember doing and even detailed drawings that I can’t remember completing.
Physical Sensations: After a lot of therapy and mindfulness (seriously), my therapist and I have been able to identify physical symptoms that occur before I disassociate. I experience tingling in my lower limbs, my feet, and calves. The lights shine as if I have had a few drinks and my heart races.
Tunnel Vision: Imagine that you are at the edge of a cave that is at the end of a long tunnel. Imagine looking down from that tunnel. From the beginning of the tunnel, you can see all of your surroundings. Depending on how dissociated I am, I communicate with family and friends that I am half way through the tunnel, at the back of the tunnel and so on. As you move further towards the end of the tunnel you can no longer see or are aware of your surroundings. For me, this is what dissociation is like.
Heightened Senses: When I have dissociated, specific and irrelevant things can often come into focus. For example, a swarm of ants on a path caught my eye the other day and I sat mesmerised for an hour. I am easily startled and shocked and most of the time (depending on if I have switched or not) do not like to be touched or startled.
There are other symptoms that I experience whilst dissociated however these are the things that I can pinpoint right now, as I am actually in a dissociative state. I am about 3 steps away from the edge of the tunnel. As I am currently integrating my parts I am trying very hard not to focus on who or where I am at.
What is it about the character of Heinz Doofenshmirtz that I find so funny, so fascinating, and so strangely touching? In part, it’s that his evilness is almost an abstract notion, even to himself. As he frequently points out to his nonevil teenage daughter Vanessa (voiced by Olivia Olson), being an archvillain is simply his job. Like Phineas and Ferb, Doof wakes up every day determined to excel anew at his task. It’s just that his agenda isn’t to make the most of summer or build cool stuff with his friends but to take over the entire Tri-State Area….
Doofenshmirtz is far from the first cartoon villain to be smacked down by fate at the end of each episode. There’s a touch of Wile E. Coyote in Doof’s endless -inators and more than a little Road Runner in his silent, uncapturable platypus foil. What sets Doof apart is his wishful relationship with his own imagined evil self. His pathetic dream of Tri-State dominion is really just a thinly disguised—and by that I mean completely undisguised—longing for universal adoration and acceptance. He wants to be loved, not feared.
How ever since the Bill AMA the fandom went nuts with the Demonic Guardians AU and made Tad a square demon, and yet now that the “Tad Strange” character has finally showed up in the show and is supposed to be normal, everyone still accepts him as secretly a demon
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) Alex. Hey pssst. Alex. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) I don't know why I'm putting Lenny faces here but it feels right. So I'm just gonna say something embarrassing and strange. You're welcome..........( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) eventually. if I find something funny embarrassing.
Haha I love being called names like this ^///^ I think it’s funny, though, cause I always imagined sans to have a deep, gravelly voice with a Boston accent (or some kind of accent) (thanks jacksepticeye). I just find it funny that that’s not really strange to draw him calling people names like this cuz it fits so well into his character in my mind.ANYYYYYYYWAYSSSS I lost what my point was. so here’s a POV of a person that sans is calling them nicknames
When I was at dinner with my dad and stepmom, my dad was telling us about a guy he knew from college who wrote a musical for his senior thesis and went on to work for a variety of people. Turns out his name is Jim Steinman; he wrote for Webber’s preposterous musical “Starlight Express”, he wrote for musicians such as Meatloaf, Bonnie Tyler and The Sisters of Mercy. He even worked on Tanz der Vampire. And my dad knew this guy, and said he was weird in school and based on his composing career just kept being weird.
I’ve been chuckling about this nonsense for two hours. Good to know Amherst class of ‘69 was a strange one.
