i surely can relate to this feeling

anonymous asked:

This might be a weird comment but the whole Weinstein scandal makes Cait having Tony (who I think is her good friend) with her at lots of work events make lots of sense. I read an article today by a woman who was assaulted at an industry event by a TV Exec. It’s gross what these guys get away with. I don’t think that’s the only reason Cait has a friend go with her to these things, but it’s just more context and might help some people who are bummed when he’s with her.

I don’t think it’s weird. If she can’t have Sam with her then why not a trusted friend? I’m sure she’s learned a lot being in the business so long and maybe doesn’t feel comfortable being alone with certain men in power. With so many stories coming out of assault and harassment almost everyday in relation to Weinstein and other men, it’s not a reach to suggest such a thing. 

anonymous asked:

May I press my sad self onto you and request something soft mchanzo related as I have the worst time of my life and your art is so good and cheers me up? If not its totally fine I can survive without it!!

Sure thing! i’m in the process of moving, but here’s something i drew a long time ago but never uploaded! I hope you feel better, my friend! c:

Houses as things I overheard while hiking part two
  • Gryffindor: "Yeah I'm going to chug all four servings of this entire energy drink now so that I'll crash later and actually get some sleep."
  • Hufflepuff: "Your aim's a little off- now look at that. You just smushed the ant. Now it can't crawl anymore."
  • Ravenclaw: "I don't feel that sore right now, but ask me again tomorrow morning and I'm sure I'll have a more colorful answer for you."
  • Slytherin: "If I don't have calves of steel or abs of iron by the end of this trip, I'm going to feel so cheated."


“I have a female friend who lives alone and she has BTS songs in her playlist, so I asked if she was their fan. “Oh, that’s for turning on when I go pick up the delivery,” she said. I asked her what she meant, and she told me they’re actually not songs but recorded conversations of the members called “skit”. You can see which skit it is in the photo below.

She said “Want to hear it?” and played the skit on on her computer’s speaker. It sounded like there were people inside when hearing from the doorway, and it became an even more plausible disguise with two pairs of dirty men’s sneakers on the shoe rack. I was heartbroken.

My friend started joining a hip hop club after she moved out to live on her own, and she learned a survival tip (?) when living alone from a senior member there, which was to turn on skits when picking up delivery. She said after looking through various skits, that group’s skits were the most natural-sounding.

My friend turned off the speaker and said, “I’m really thankful to them~ I think I’m gonna buy their album, to repay them~”. It’s just… It’s not like they did anything directly, but I’m kind of thankful to them too. They eased the anxiety of a girl living alone, even if it’s just for a while.

Sometimes when I listen to skits, I think “Why did they put these in?”. I just feel so bitter that someone is using them this way. Anyway, since this seems like a good method, I’m posting this to share with other people. The world is sad.“

You can not fully understand something until you have experienced it firsthand.

If I get a cut on my foot, you can’t tell me “it doesn’t hurt” and know for sure if you aren’t experiencing it the same way I’m experiencing it, ESPECIALLY if you’ve never been cut.

You can support and love victims and movements, but you literally cannot completely relate to them until you have experienced what they go through (on a day to day basis).

• If you’re a straight person, you aren’t going to understand how homophobia feels or affects a person.

• If you’re a white person, you aren’t going to understand the impact racism has (because you cannot be racist to a white person).

• If you’re a man, you aren’t going to understand the sexism often directed at women or how degrading catcalling is.

• If you’re a woman, you aren’t going to understand how it feels to be a man being told he can’t cry, or express emotions, or show anything but masculinity.

• If you have never been raped, you aren’t going to fully understand the feelings and trauma associated with it.


Does that mean your love and support is lessened? No. Does that mean you don’t or shouldn’t care for these people? No. It means you shouldn’t tell them how to feel, when they’re being oppressed, or if their emotions are justified because you. don’t. know.

moonlit-chronicles  asked:

What is your favorite show from Bo Burnham? For me, it's really hard to choose between "what." and "Make Happy"

Make Happy for sure! It’s incredible because it’s not just jokes, it’s a god damn experience from start to finish. A lot of what he does in that show has another layer to it even though there are one off silly jokes but that’s more to offset the pacing and give a breather. 

It’s both hilarious and heart breaking at the same time to watch that special because you can clearly see and feel that something is off with him and it makes it a lot more real. I can relate very heavily to the ending song too and even after watching it several times it still makes me tear up. 

Wherever you are Bo, I hope you are happy! 


INTRO: Serendipity

The title in general means “Luck that takes the form of finding valuable or pleasant things that are not looked for”. When this term is appended with love it brings many other elements such as destiny and happiness. The things that the lyrics of the song described well  

I will invite you to read this analysis where all the main elements about it are explained HERE

DNA is the carrier of genetic information. But how is attached to “LOVE”? There is something called The Neurobiology of Love. Doctor Larry Young, for instance, believes there is a biological basis for love. He says “So many people ask is there a chemical or genetic basis to human love, and I certainly believe there is. I’m very confident that emotions such as love are really the byproduct of chemical reactions that happen in our brain where certain neurotransmitter molecules activating receptors in certain brain circuits that activate an emotional feeling. One of those emotional feelings that we know to be very human is love. Love happens between partners, but also between parents and their offspring, offspring and their parents and I think that there’s surely a biological mechanism to that.” Thus love and DNA are very related. 

DNA aside from meaning DeoxyriboNucleic Acid can be the abbreviation to many: Does Not Apply, Do Not Accept, Do Not Answer, Do Not Adjust, Daytime Nighttime Anytime, Don’t Need Advice … So be it if BTS will use it as it is and develop a poetic meaning to it or use an abbreviation, only time will tell us. 

Best Of Me

This is a song where BTS collab with the Chainsmokers. The title is quite self-explanatory as some loved ones can bring the best out of us.

보조개 = Dimple 

Dimple is the most beautiful human flaw. They are rare and can bring a charm to their owner. So just like beautiful eyes or a warm smile, dimples can be the reason you start finding someone attractive and eventually fall for them.

Pied Piper

The Pied Piper of Hamelin or the Rat-Catcher of Hamelin) is the title character of a legend from the town of Hamelin (Hameln), Lower Saxony, Germany in 1934. The legend dates back to the Middle Ages, the earliest references describing a piper, dressed in multicolored clothing, who was a rat-catcher hired by the town to lure rats away with his magic pipe. When the citizens refuse to pay for this service, he retaliates by using his instrument’s magical power on their children, leading them away as he had the rats. 

There are many contradictory theories about the Pied Piper. Some suggest he was a symbol of hope to the people of Hamelin, which had been attacked by plague; he drove the rats from Hamelin, saving the people from the epidemic. Others suggest that children died of some natural causes such as disease or starvation and that the Piper was a symbolic figure of Death. 

But what is the relationship between a Pied Piper and a theme such as “LOVE”. This man was a loving character who was willing to help the city and its owner but his feeling turned into hate when the society he was in was ungrateful towards his work. 

Pied Piper serves many metaphors according to Merriam-Webster, and truthfully they all describe BTS:

  1. a charismatic person who attracts followers
  2. a musician who attracts mass

It’s pretty known that Bangtan do not follow the kpop trends but are ahead of them. Thus, the song may probably talk about how BTS are now trend setters. They may also talk about how they became global during this year. There are many theories that can go with this song. 

Skit: Billboard Music Awards speech

Get ready to cry loads or laugh out loud, it’s either one of the two extremities with BTS skits. They may introduce how they ended up deciding to drop a clue about their comeback in such a big award ceremony. Rapmon clearly said during the speech “LOVE YOURSELF”.

Mic Drop may be just a catchy phare many uses but it has more history than you think. A mic drop is a gesture of intentionally dropping one's microphone at the end of a performance or speech to signal triumph. Figuratively, it is an expression of triumph for a successful event and indicates a boastful attitude toward one’s own performance.The gesture dates to the 1980s when it was used by rappers and comedians. Performers from both groups can engage in confrontational performance styles - rappers may participate in rap battles, comedians may interact with a  heckler in the audience - and dropping the microphone after a particularly effective line indicated complete confidence in the opponent’s inability to come back with anything that would be worthy of a response. An early occurrence was Eddie Murphy in 1983 in his standup show Delirious. 

BTS worked hard this year and had arms full of praises and exploits, coming with a song where they sing about it is only natural. It’s also a way to show the ones who doubted them that they are the ones who got the final word. This song will sure have more rap than the others. 

고민보다 go = before worrying, go or go rather than worry

BTS are known to speak up to the youth and their struggles, their mission never changed since the start to give hope. Including a song that helps the ones fighting is also a natural move coming from BTS. 

Outro: HER

This album will help introduce another one coming by 2018. We may finally know who is that “HER” that got us all stressed this past month or we may end up with an answer that will lead to another question.

On Describing Characters

Anonymous asked: “I’ve been writing in first person for my novel, but I’ve found I’m not sure how to describe the main character’s appearance.”

First person in particular can be a bit of a challenge when it comes to describing appearances. I think all the way around the trick of describing the way they look while looking into a mirror is a little tired and often hard to make it feel believable. The method I find most helpful is describing by comparison.

Basic Rules of Gun Safety

1. Always assume your firearm is loaded.

2. Always keep your firearm pointed in a safe direction

3. Do not point your firearm at anything you are not willing to destroy.

4. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to fire.

5. Never fire your weapon without being absolutely sure of your target.

6. Never fire your weapon into the air/at “nothing.”

7. Always know what is BEHIND your target (bullets can go through people, walls, etc and keep traveling at lethal speeds).

8. Treat your firearm with respect. It is a tool, not a toy. It can end someone’s life. Do not take that lightly.

Accidental gun-related deaths occur when people make deadly assumptions about their firearm and its capabilities. Don’t be the idiot who shoots his friend (or, in a recent case, child) in the face because you were “messing around” and you were “absolutely sure it wasn’t loaded.”

People who know more about guns than I do, feel free to add anything I left out.

Being pregnant with Chris Evans' baby:

Originally posted by chrisevanshh

Some parts of the pregnancy are slightly exaggerated to give more humor.

• It’s no secret, Chris has said many times he wants to be a dad and he’s looking forward to it. So, when you stand in the bathroom with the positive tests in hands, you really aren’t stressed about telling him. You’re quite excited to see his face because you love kids too.
• When you tell him you’re pregnant, he looks at you with wide eyes because he has no idea how to react: he’s probably thinking of how much he wants to kiss you for the rest of his life or asking you to marry him all over again, or even make another baby right now!
• Though, it’s not long before he reacts when he sees the five pregnancy tests. He laughs so happily as he spoons you in his arms that you can’t help but giggle and he keeps telling you he loves you so much.
• He can’t even stop kissing you or your tummy.
• The first days after the announcement, he keeps giggling with you and asks himself if it’s a dream or not. He also tries not to freak out and get nervous.
• Your families are overly happy to hear the news.
• His mother cries at this moment because her baby boy will have his own baby.
• Chris worries about his ability to be a good father, but you kiss his insecurities away and tell him he is a great father already because he wants to be a dad for so long and that’s also something he gotta learn with time and with you.
• He takes care of you all day. Every day.
• You can wake him up at 2 in the morning to eat your favorite meal.
• You both eat Starbucks’ jelly beans right after.
• Chris plans your baby’s first trip to Disney World secretly. He buys everything he needs to make sure they will love everything related to Disney!
• He is unsurprisingly protective.
• Chris grins like an idiot for hours whenever he hears the heartbeat of your baby and when he feels their very first kicks.
• - “Stop carrying me everywhere, Chris. I can walk. I’m pregnant, not sick.”
 - “I know, but I don’t want you to take a risk.”
• Chris is here for you every step of the way and assures you he loves this baby and you more than anything else.
• He realizes that marrying was the best choice he made you when your hormones are going wild.
• One day, you catch him purchasing some Patriots baby gift sets and clothing. You basically have to stop him before he can buy everything related to his favorite team in the NFL store.
• He’s still currently trying to find a Tom Brady bodysuit with “Baby Evans” flocked at the back.
• You call your mother every time something new happens during your pregnancy and when she says everything is fine, Chris calls Lisa to double check.
 - “Did you seriously call your mom?”
 - “Sweetheart, it’s just to be sure.”
• Chris smiles every time you say you look too big, but he thinks you are gorgeous as ever with this baby bump. Because you carry life, so nothing is more beautiful.
 - “Chris, why are you even staying with me? I look like a potato.”
 - “You are perfect and this the most beautiful moment of our lives. It’s our baby inside.”
 - “Okay, I trust you this time. But only because you’ve also gained weight.”
 - “That’s my gi… Wait, what?!”
• Chris sings Disney songs every night to your baby before sleep. Let’s be honest, he does this all the time.
• He wants to have a boy first just to teach him how to prank you in the future.

• He is in-between a mix of stress and joy when you go into labor. He’s there for you, though.
• You almost crush the bones of his hand when you push.
 - “Never again! I will never let you touch me ever again, Evans! Heard me?!”
 - “Don’t exaggerate, it’s- OUCH!”
 - “Please, Mrs. Evans, stop threatening your husband. You have to push!”
• Chris cries and smiles when he holds your baby for the first time.

anonymous asked:

Maybe this is perverted of me, but I noticed in the new pictures that Rey's cleavage and Kylo's 'package' are being readily displayed by their new costumes. If Reylo is happening, it makes sense that SW would want to up the sexiness. They did it with Padme's more form-fitting and revealing dresses in AOTC.

I don’t think you’re being perverted at all. Let’s look at Rey and Kylo in turn here. So we have Rey:

Here, she has a tiny, form-fitting white shirt on that displays her cleavage. From the BTS shots shown at Star Wars Celebration, we know that Rey is wearing this outfit in the rain, so the fabric will presumably be clinging and potentially even slightly transparent. She’s also going to physically exert herself in this outfit (running, fighting), so it’s not unreasonable to suppose that there will be lots of heavy exhalations and sweat involved.

While she seemed almost childish and innocent in The Force Awakens, here it’s clear that she’s starting to express her sexuality and is being presented as a woman rather than a girl. And that reminds me powerfully of this quote from Rian Johnson: “It very much feels like what we all go through in adolescence, the dawning of this new chapter of our lives.” While Rian doesn’t spell it out, developing a sexuality identity is a big part of adolescence. So I absolutely think we’re seeing Rey as a sexual being now because we’re going to watch her grow up and experience attraction and desire (among other things).

Then with Kylo you have him looking much more masculine and physically dominant than we’ve seen him before. In The Force Awakens he was primped within an inch of his life and appeared almost pampered looking, whereas in The Last Jedi he has a much more naturalistic look with layers literally stripped away. While he seemed like an awkward and petulant adolescent in the Vanity Fair image of Kylo for The Force Awakens, he projects confidence and physicality now. The absence of the outer robe means we can see his legs, and that will offer him a much greater range of movement. While it’s not as obvious as it is with Rey, the trousers are quite form fitting and you’re meant to notice that this is a powerful and attractive young man rather than a scary, faceless wraith (which is pretty much how Kylo was promoted for TFA, Vanity Fair image excepted). 

This stuff has actually really tickled @bastila-bae and me, since we spoke about this exact topic in an episode of Scavenger’s Hoard a few weeks ago (I’m feeling quite prophetic rn). I said I was afraid of sounding like a perv then, but they’re now making the sexualisation so blatant in the publicity images that it can only be a deliberate artistic choice. 

Of course, I’m sure this has absolutely no narrative implications and will have no impact whatsoever on Kylo and Rey’s interactions when they reunite. The characters’ costumes and appearances will be entirely immaterial to how they relate to each other, since we all know that the visual element of film is pretty much irrelevant.

So I pop into twitter for a moment and I see that as per usual, this missy here is creating more drama.

First off, I just to say that yes I buy her books. I buy her books for the sole purpose of hoping that she shows a common shred of decency and improves from the mess that was TMI. Admittedly, TID was much better written and didn’t have incest, f/f hate towards each other and biphobia. So kudos to her for that.

Secondly, she’s been known to drag the show when she feels like she’s been fading out of the spotlight. She’s also known for being extremely petty. She’s been granted a show about her books (or plagiarized works if you want to look at it that way) and yet she has to be petty about it and complain every chance she gets. If anything, the show has improved her books, making it more realistic. Simon isn’t going to cheat on the show. Alec isn’t biphobic and is very respectful towards Magnus. Malec isn’t sidelined. As for the incest, we’re not sure where they’re going with that but hopefully it doesn’t get too serious.

The show is a refreshing upgrade from the books. It feels fresh and vibrant and full of life situations that many people can relate to. I felt a better connection with the show than I did with the books. Book lovers can shit on this post all they want but I’m only speaking the honest to god truth here. Your precious author isn’t as godly as she seems. She has a history of pettiness. She’s bullied someone online to the point where they deactivated. She makes money through unnecessary outlets (see this post for more info. Some excellent points are made here https://twitter.com/hijadepavlov/status/830566977940905986)

My advice to Cassandra is to just shut up. Know when to open your mouth and know when to keep it shut. Be thankful that you’ve been given an opportunity for your work (or in this case someone else’s) to come to life on the small screen. You’ve been given a gift that most authors would kill for and never get to see in their lifetime. So stop being so goddamn petty and narcissistic because honey, the nomination for the GLAAD award had nothing to do with you. That’s the show’s doing. You’ve done nothing to deserve that award.

YOI in Steven Universe

Yuuri, Victor, Yurio and Otabek are in the Steven Universe #4 Comic!

Here’s Victuuri:

Here’s Otayuri:

“I just like YoI - the characters are great! Sometimes drawing backgrounds isn’t the most compelling, so I tend to add cameos. It makes it fun for me to draw, and it’s a cute little Easter egg for the people reading,” -Katy Farina, Illustrator of the comic.

Farina found the anime itself inspiring. “When it was airing I was feeling so discouraged and unmotivated. Watching Yūri work hard and learn to find confidence in himself inspired me to do the same. I think a lot of people can relate to that,” she shared. “Victor and Yūri’s relationship also - watching that develop and the nuance of their dynamic is really compelling. Yūri is definitely my fave though! Whenever I’m feeling like I can’t do something I think back to the series and his journey.”  (source)

This further proves how ground-breaking YOI is. But we already know that. Let’s talk about VICTOR AND YUURI HOLDING HANDS AND YURIO DRAGGING A BORED LOOKING OTABEK. Because that’s cute af.

VICTOR: Let’s check out the food stands.

YUURI: Sure, honey.

YURIO: Come on, Beka. I saw an awesome arcade game over there.



Lance Love

I don’t connect with any of the other characters as much as Lance. Pidge is this genius hacker, Hunk and Coran are engineer specialists, Shiro and Allura are badass leaders, and Keith is a skilled swordsman and flier. These characters are so very talented, and Lance respects them and looks up to them. He compares himself to them, he works hard to achieve this greatness, yet someone is either one step ahead of him or he isn’t good enough. And that is a problem I see in Lance and myself. Both of us unnecessarily compare ourselves to others and as we do it makes us feel worthless. We take pride in the small praises because genuine praise of any kind is a rarity when surrounded by so much talent that it becomes normal. We act like we are the best because we feel like the worst. Lance is a character made to be relatable not only to me, but so many others. And I sure you can make this argument for the other characters in Voltron, but it is Lance’s supposed mediocrity that makes me hold him closest to me heart.

“They call me crazy for loving someone like you.” she smiled. “Someone who doesn’t care at me at all. Someone who just kept on ignoring my calls and messages. Someone who doesn’t even appreciate everything I do for him.” she looked at him and it seemed that he’s still not paying attention to what she’s saying. “And maybe they were right. That I am indeed making myself look like a fool. Maybe I just fall in love with the wrong person. Isn’t that normal ? Isn’t that happened to everyone else? Has everyone fallen in love with someone who doesn’t love them back? Is that so cliché? That everybody is getting used to it? I’m not even sure. That—billions of—people are experiencing the same thing. All I know is that, this is the first time I’ve been like this. I am crazy and it is because of my heart—not because of my brain. I am crazy because I fall in love. Do crazy means feeling something? ” she said still looking at him. There’s a minute of silence between them. All they can hear is the hush of falling leaves. Autumn has begun. And like leaves her heart is still falling for someone who isn’t willing to catch it. For the first time, he looked at her directly. He said the words she’s sure she will always remember. “ They were all wrong. If there’s someone here who is crazy, that is me. Because I cannot even appreciate every little thing that you have done for me. And all I can think of is—am I normal ? Am I still real? Because I’m sure, I can’t feel anything. ”. With that, he walked away without waiting for her reaction. And she thought that maybe, crazy meant a lot of things.

We all know that I’m a little bit peeved at my girl Clarke right now, but you guys have got to stop saying Clarke doesn’t love/need/care about Bellamy when the narrative explicitly states over and over that she absolutely does. 

In honor of my frustration have a list of my favorite “Clarke Griffin loves/trusts/needs/cares for Bellamy Blake” moments. (Note-this is not even close to being all the moments and mostly consists of verbal confirmation of feelings). 

I have included links for each scene which you can watch by clicking the Episode Number. When you watch the scene make sure you focus on Clarke’s facial expressions and her tone. I’d also like to point out that each Season has more Clarke related Bellamy feels than the Season before it even as Bellamy and Clarke spend less physical time together and in Season 3-the Season were Clarke was the most detached from her people as a whole, the obvious expressions of affection for Bellamy still increased!)

Season 1

1.  “Hey, you saved my life today. You may be a total ass half the time, but I need you. We all need you.” (Day Trip-108)

2.  “When you sent us down here, you sent us to die, but miraculously, most of us are still alive. In large part that is because of him. Because of Bellamy. He’s one of us and he deserves to be pardoned of his crimes just like the rest of us.” (Day Trip-108)

4. Clarke writing down Bellamy’s name. (The Four Horseman-403)

5. “Bellamy should be back by now.” (A Lie Guarded-404)

6. “Hey, any word from Jaha? Did they find Bellamy’s unit?”-make sure you pay attention to Monty’s response-it’s perfection! (The Tinder Box-405)

7. Clarke’s face when Monty says “No sign of Bellamy or Stephens.” (The Tinder Box-405)

8. “Your move, Wanheda.” (The Tinder Box-405)

9. “You think you can shake my resolve? I was willing to sacrifice my own mother to stop A.L.I.E..” (The Tinder Box-405)

10. “Bellamy, are you OK?” (The Tinder Box-405)

11. Clarke’s concern. (We Will Rise-406)

12. “Is it Octavia?” (We Will Rise-406)

13. This smile (We Will Rise-406)

14. “She’ll see how special you are.” (We Will Rise-406)

And again-these are not all the moments that indicate that Clarke has feelings for Bellamy. So many of you all are frustrated with what you perceive as Clarke’s lack of care for Bellamy that you fail to recognize one of the most realistic portrayals of human love on this show. You also need to remember that not everyone loves/displays love in the same way. While Bellamy is more open with his emotions (which makes sense considering he is the “heart”), Clarke tends to keep her feelings shuttered until they come bubbling out. 

Of note? Clarke has canonically shown more depth of emotion for Bellamy, her “platonic” partner than she has for any of her canon romantic love interests. 

So can we PLEASE just stop with the “Clarke doesn’t care about Bellamy” rhetoric now?

-Dirk is the most touch-starved person ever. During his time at Blackwing he was never touched for anything except experimentation/transportation purposes, and the lack of physical contact fucked with his head to the extent that he actually started to look forward to the 0.2 secs of physical contact he’d get as the doctor was fastening electrodes to his head (even though he knows the only thing that follows is pain). Of course he would then immediately go to feeling guilty and wrong and start questioning his own sanity. He now has a distinctly weird relationship with physical contact. He does it all the time, touches his friends and sometimes even non-friends because he can do that now, but sometimes he can’t immediately tell if a touch is non-friendly in nature- or if he can tell, the part of him that chased any human contact regardless of intention during his developing years doesn’t care. It’s a serious dent in his sense of self-preservation and he hasn’t entirely worked it out yet.

-on being re-captured by Blackwing, he had his jacket and Mexican Funeral shirt taken away, and his head shaved. It takes months for the military buzzcut to grow back to his old length after his rescue- and every time he looks in the mirror during those months he’s reminded of everything else Blackwing has taken from him.

-despite his confidence that the universe will take him where he needs to go, he can never quite shake the feeling that he’s doing everything wrong. He always used to tell the Blackwing scientists ‘it doesn’t work like that!’ when his ‘power’ didn’t get them the results they wanted, and he does believe that. But years of being told that you’re doing it wrong, that you’re not reaching your full potential, that this is a thing you could do if only you put the work in and made it happen, that THIS IS WHAT YOUR POWER SHOULD BE take their toll. When he follows the thread of fate to its destination and people get hurt along the way, he can never quite shake the voice in his head that says if he’d done his job right this could have all been avoided.

-he loves his little adopted family with all his heart. Todd, Amanda, Farah. Even the Rowdies grow on him eventually, once Amanda tells them Dirk’s emotions are off-limits. He’s often reminded, though, listening to them talking about their parents and their siblings, that he’s got very little in common with them. He doesn’t have family stories to share. He doesn’t know where his mother is, or even if she’s still alive. He never had siblings, and most of his very short childhood is lost to him, over-written in his mind by his, uh, unconventional Blackwing upbringing. Strangely enough, the Rowdies are the only ones that really get it. They don’t talk about their lives pre-Blackwing, it opens old scars they’d rather keep shut. But Martin and Cross had families once, Gripps may even have been a father. Vogel was too young, younger even than Dirk- the Rowdies are the only family he’s ever known. Sometimes Dirk will watch Todd and Amanda, bickering like siblings do, and one of the Rowdies will meet his sad gaze and nod. They see him. They understand. It doesn’t help, but it’s nice to know.

Anyone else with a mental illness really get down on themselves about how it affects their activism? (I’m sure aaalllll kinds of disabilities have a similar experience, please comment if you do, I’m just specifying mental illness in relation to myself because it’s something I personally have, but not other disabilities or conditions.)

Like all I want is for my support and #resistance to be practical and NOT performative but on bad days sometimes reading articles and sharing and showing support to other activists is all I can do and it makes me feel really fake to be honest. 

Like… no matter what disability or illness related-reasons causes it… 

What if sometimes you can’t go out and march because your bones feel like they’ll collapse or being around so many people sends your PTSD/stress through the roof? 

What if sometimes you can’t donate any more money to your favourite causes or ANY causes because having below a certain amount in your account gives you panic attacks and 24/7 anxiety? 

What if sometimes you dodge the political society people on campus (the ones you love and agree with) because you’re so overloaded or manic that you can’t even bear the thought of a conversation? 

What if sometimes you are totally taken down by the intellectual, physical and emotional labour of calling and messaging politicians and representatives to give us rights we should already have? 

What if sometimes you have to disconnect from any awareness of worldwide tragedy and injustice for hours or days at a time because the level of catastrophic depression in your mind LITERALLY puts your life in danger if you don’t wallpaper yourself in peace and hope for a while? 

What if sometimes you get sick to death of the ableism in activist circles (or ANY circles), from the tiny microaggressions to the huge inequalities and it makes you drown in negativity? 

What if your condition means all these things apply all the time, not just sometimes? 

And how do you tell the difference between your genuine issues and you making excuses, to hold yourself accountable for doing what you want others to do, even though it’s never easy?

All I want is a better world but holy hell does all this get me down. It feels like I almost only ever have the energy, means, money, time or literal mental ability to talk the talk and not walk the walk. I hate it. 

But I survive because I know I’m not alone, and that my struggles are part of my fight, not the end of it. Mad love to you all.
