i think it says

so say that shiro really is a clone rn. whether or not he knows he is one and is purposefully helping the galra, or is simply caught in the cross fire - that’s not what i’m getting at.

say that the real shiro comes back. and once everything calms down, he immediately puts keith in second-place charge. or even allura. lance is ripped from his position of right hand man to equal level of the other paladins, like he was before. it shouldn’t really be a problem, because it isn’t as if shiro doesn’t trust the rest of the group.

what it does say, however, is that clone did something that shiro would never do - put lance in a position of power and immense personal trust. and lance knows this.

Speaking of Jason Isbell, I want y’all to know that every time Harry and Louis are MIA at the same time, I’m constantly singing “Cover Me Up” from Jason’s Southeastern album and dying inside.

And the old lover’s sing
“I thought it’d be me who helped him get home”
But home was a dream
One I’d never seen till you came along

So [boy], leave your boots by the bed
We ain’t leaving this room
Till someone needs medical help
Or the magnolias bloom
It’s cold in this house and I ain’t going out to [get Starbucks]
So cover me up and know you’re enough
To use me for good

  • me, a girl who has never touched a boy in her life: great my period is a day late time to pick out the baby names and buy the clothes in secret from my parents oh god what will they say how will i break it to them ill need to run away and change my name and live in hiding forever with my firstborn child and-

A Reflection and a Thank You

So, I’ve been an Overwatch player for the entirety of its existence - a year and six months (time flies wow). And during this time, I’ve noticed many things about the fandom, some good and some bad. Are we allowed to critique the game? Fuck yeah! I could go on all day about how absurd it was that OW didn’t have a proper discipline system in place upon release (consoles had NOTHING AT ALL for months). I could tell you how I feel the writing is disorganised and how they release character lore in a messy way or that their balancing of characters play wise could be so much better. There is much that you can critique.

But today, I’m not going to do that.

Recently, there has been an absence of thanks. The players and fandom alike have made many posts and words complaining about many things, but two words seem the hardest to type. I’m writing this because this thank you is a personal one. Some may scoff, but you’re welcome to - it won’t deter me in the slightest.

I’m on the autistic spectrum (diagnosed with Asperger’s, before the change of the DSM IV into the DSM V, by a private clinical psychologist because the local councils couldn’t be bothered with me, but I disgress) and, as many of us know all too well, we don’t get looked at much. We have a presence in this world that is often unfavourable to lots of people - but the times ARE changing, even if those are small changes.

One of these changes happened last year - and for me, it’s one of the most hardhitting. It was a huge thing that happened so quickly, I’m not sure people really understood WHAT had happened.

Symmetra appeared in my life.

“Wait, what?”

I know, I know. This is probably a strange statement to make, and possibly an overdramatic one, but please read. I’ll do my best to explain.

Symmetra is a support character in Overwatch, one often criticised for being too powerful or not really a support character etc. She basically lasers people to death and is a highly accomplished architect working for a morally corrupt company in the OW lore. She’s very beautiful (personal opinion there, lol).

And she’s like me.

She’s autistic.

To understand this a little better, you must realise that autistic people have little exposure in the media. There are a few story books about us, some TV shows and movies with us in, I guess. But many of these are often riddled with dramatic stereotypes, played up into almost a Greek tragedy. You know, the usual Hollywood touch. And video games…Christ, I’ve NEVER played a game with an autistic character. I may have missed one or two, it’s true.

But Symmetra appeared.

Symmetra - in one of the most popular video games on the planet as I speak. The Overwatch team, without prompting, without complaining, delivered to me (to US) one of the best autistic characters I have ever witnessed. You can call me biased, that’s cool. But she is.

She’s not a stereotype. She’s not an “autistic baby uwu” or an “emotionless robot who will never feel love”. She’s not a “burden”.

She’s a human being. She’s someone you could talk to at work or in the street. She’s a successful (famous even, if you are eagle-eyed like me and saw her on a magazine cover in Reflections), compassionate human being who is morally complex and in a human dilemma. She’s not perfect, she’s even morally flawed herself.

And God, I adore her. I could have cried the moment she was confirmed for sure as autistic.

I imagine some people will say “pfft, pandering at work”. I suppose if you’re used to seeing yourself in a positive light in media, then you don’t really think about those who aren’t. You don’t think about those you never see, or rarely see.

I had no idea this was coming. Many in my position will confirm this. The Overwatch team decided this on their own and handed her to us on a golden platter with all the grace they could - and it shows. Even now, I have tears in my eyes, because they treated this so well. They write her far better than the actual fandom do - that’s astonishing (and frustrating at times too). She is fun for me to play too (again, personal opinion as I understand people have their likes and dislikes).

And you want to know the funny thing? For a fandom to claims to love and want more diversity, I barely saw ANYTHING about this. I saw at most three or four things here about this mark in history. The fandom just…ignored it. And for the most part, they still do. I don’t really have any grudge against this, but it made me wonder.

I’m overjoyed though.

I’m delighted that they wrote her as a human being. I’m delighted she is fun to play and that she exists at all. This means the world to me and more - I can’t say everything in my heart and mind, because I’m not sure I can describe it all.

But I can say two words.

Thank you.

Thank you, Overwatch, for caring when so few people did (and presently don’t). Thank you for looking me dead in the eye, pointing to Symmetra and saying “You are here. You are human and you are worthy of existence.” Thank you for giving me some courage and compassion when I was having a rough time. Thank you for showing me my struggle with the world and with my Asperger’s has been worth it.

And I hope I’m saying this on behalf of others like me too.

Thank you - thank you for doing this. You’ve made a difference.

I hope people realise just how much.

Thank you for Symmetra.

She’s beautiful.

clef tale update: too put-together to be a failed project, too messy to be a complete product, we’re having a great time

look if A&E wanted to keep Killian’s daughter locked away and make it plausible that he continuously snuck in to see her… they could always have had the witch set a guard dragon to ward off intruders. And, you know, a certain well-traveled pirate might know how to appease said dragon. Depending on the kind, with either stirring conversation, flattery, promises… or a bit of shiny things here and there… I’m Just Saying

For someone who was an English major in college and is theoretically reasonably good with the language, I sure do have a lot of trouble with animal plurals.

I just spent like three minutes internally convinced that that the singular of ‘sheep’ was ‘shep,’ and my sister and I spent so much time as children joking that it was ‘one moose, two meese,’ that I do honestly instinctively think that’s right. Like. I know it’s not.

But also, are we sure?

congrats on the new pronouns~ hope you and your sister have a wonderful day and that anon steps on some legos

Ha ha! That’s a little mean. I’m sure that other anon was just confused. Legos are serious business. Best save those for really bad people.

And thank you! I am super excited and so is she. It’s an early present for her third birthday and she’s been in a real My Little Pony mood lately. The hardest part will be trying to convince her to not bring every pony she has with her.

..small hiatus?

- so I think I start my home schooling soon which is gonna make me busy so I won’t really be on much to post or really even reblog…

- i still have about 12 more char sheets left to finish (not including the new sims i made) so I’ll still post that so I wont be all the way inactive on here…

- I’m gonna use this break as a chance to actually finish my blog and start decorating houses (lol maybe, im just super lazy if im gonna be 100% honest with you)

- as for my rp twitters I’m gonna try to be on there more so you guys can interact with me if you want on there.

- im gonna be on my inspo more most likely so you can message me on my personal tumblr if you want to talk @kagaiyo

((^: okayyyy,, i think that’s all??? Yea…. :vv see y'all soon?!?!?!?
