I’m sorry but can people just… stop making posts about how stimboards are bad because “the Neurotypicals have taken stimming and made it a Trendy Aesthetic! they all just like slime and paint and don’t care about people who REALLY stim!” I just saw another one of these and I’m so annoyed over it.
To be clear,I’m not talking about posts where people say things like “Allistics/NTs people who enjoy stimboards should be aware that autistic people are often made fun of for their body stims and that glitter and paint isn’t all stimming is!”Those are good and fine. I’m talking about the posts I’ve seen where people…. somehow don’t seem to realize that the majority of stim blogs are run by autistic people, people with ADHD, people with severe anxiety… you know, the exact kinds of people who need to stim. (And yes there are NT people who make stimming into an aesthetic, I’m not denying that, it’s just that they’re the minority in terms of people who run stim blogs.)
If you don’t wanna take me at face value on that previous statement, I just went through all of the stim blogs I’m following and here are some numbers– Blogs run by at least one autistic person: 35 Blogs run at least one allistic but otherwise neurodivergent person (and no autistic people): 29 Blogs run completely by neurotypical people: 2 Blogs that didn’t seem to specify: 14 Let me reiterate: I went through eighty (80) different stim blogs and the amount of those with at least one autistic or otherwise ND mod was sixty-four (64). The amount of those with only NT mods was two (2) and the amount that could go either way was fourteen (14). I think it’s safe to say that tumblr’s visual stim community is largely made by and for neurodivergent people who are genuinely helped by stimming.
But some people don’t seem to be aware of this and they make posts that say things like we shouldn’t be referring to videos & gifs that we literally use to help us audio & visual stim as “stimmy”? That we should just call stimboards “gif moodboards” instead? And that we think stimming is a Trendy Aesthetic when really we’re literally using these things to stim? And then act as if none of us know what it feels like to be made fun of for our body stims? And generally just act like we’re all neurotypical people?
Personally I unlearned so many of my stimming behaviors as a kid, including rocking, flapping, and hair twirling, because I kept getting picked on at school for doing them. Every time I go out I’m afraid I’ll accidentally start doing a “weird” stim in public and embarrass myself. Tons of people who run stim blogs also have body stims; we do know what it feels like be stigmatized for them.
Look, I just… I understand if stimboards don’t do anything for you personally. I understand if you’re bothered that neurotypical people enjoy and share them. I get that. And, like I said, I understand that there are neurotypical people who treat stimboards like they’re just a cool new aesthetic–it’s okay to complain about that. But they’re the ones who should be blamed for it, not us. People getting mad about the concept of stimboards existing without realizing that the majority of those who make them are the kinds of people who actually need them is what bothers me.
Sorry for ranting so much, I didn’t expect this post to end up this long… I guess basically what I’m saying is that we should continue making posts explaining that things like flapping and chewing are also stims and making fun of people for them is wrong, because those are genuinely helpful. But we should stop making posts acting like all stimboards are made by Neurotypicals who want to Steal Stimming, because that’s literally not true and makes me feel bad as an autistic person who runs a stim blog.
How would US & SF Papyrus's react to an S/O who has ADD and dyslexia, but loves to read and write stories for them?
He likes listening to you reading him things. Anything is fine to him, but your stories are the best. He likes it when you read for him while he’s working on something, or doing a simpler task. Multitasking is something he’s very good at, and let’s just say that taxes are a hell of a lot easier to get through with your reading in the background. He’s actually always had problems with reading words and also spelling them, but he never thought much about it. Until he met you and you told him about your dyslexia. Basically, he’s got a small case of it himself. And he’s happy to know that it wasn’t from all his smoking, the not cigarette smoking. At least now he knows that glasses wont help him. And you’re both on the same page. Makes listening to you read even better.
He loves listening to you. Cuddle sessions where his head is on your stomach and you’re reading him the newest thing you’ve written are his favorite thing. It’s amazing and you’re so talented. He’s very patient if you’re having trouble reading certain words. He’ll help you if you want him to, but most of the time he prefers to just wait until you’ve got it.
There’s just something so relaxing and intimate with the whole ordeal. You’re showing him something you’ve written. Sometimes things you’ve written to him. He can’t believe that you’d do that for someone like him.
Hey! I know it’s late but I’ve been working on this all week. There’s some spots I could touch up but honestly I was so excited to post it. Before I even saw the new x-men movies I loved Nightcrawler but I love Quicksilver so much now like ahhhh. Anyway I’m rambling. Maybe ill post a touched up version. Not sure. Anyways… hope you guys enjoy this! @givepetermaximoffaboyfriend
I know that we all love Promto’s arms,but come on,don’t make Noctis a weak guy …I mean,did you see him?! In my first playthrough Prompto kept photographing Noctis’s back,butt,all of him even without input and nowhere he seem weak…I know we have all our own headcanons but…come on…even his personality…please…
I can’t believe my first post EVER is going to be an analysis inspired by an edit.
(sorry in advance for any grammar errors, this isn’t my first language)
So, has anyone noticed how each alien race that joined the resistance so far kind of represent each paladin minus Shiro?
Galra (rebel)s: Keith
(Idk if Arusians are actually countable since they’re really primitives)
And then there’s Shiro. That poor guy doesn’t even have an alien race who represents him.
…or does he?
Before we go further, let’s point out how each of those alien races represent not only The paladins, but also their elements (and their Lions, kinda):
Galras, who are connected to Keith were in posses of the Red lion in ep1, and I can’t remember where, but I’m sure at one point in an episode there were both fire and the Galra empire in the same place, I think it was when they destroyed Altea I guess?
Mermaids, Lance, Water, Blue being op in the water and unlocking her power-up there. Need something else?
Balmeras, again, Hunk, earth, maybe no power-up here but he unlocked it when he was saving those guys in s2 trying to hold the earth in its place while they were waiting for emo and princess
Olkarins, Pidge, forest, unlocked power. I think you understood the point
Shiro Is The Black Paladin, whom we Can all agree that represents space, and he’s without doubts the team leader (S2 final doesn’t fool me, I know he’ll be back), and which is that one race whose only survivors are travelling across space and are the leaders of the rebellion?
Yep. You got it. Alteans.
And it fits, doesn’t it? The leader of the team who use the only weapon that Can defeat the Galra Empire being represented by the alien race leader of the rebellion.Besides, a parallelism:
Both Shiro and Altea were “destroyed” by Galras, and now they’re both fighting against it (Altea intended as Coran, Allura and the Castle), recovering from their loss, but still kind of connected trought something to those purple furries (Shiro and his arm, Alteans and Zarkon as exBPaladin and Haggar or Lotor maybe? I hope they get a good background). Besides, it’s not really new this symbolism kinda thing on Voltron (S1e6 bg, Shiro’s right arm being Galra and Keith being the right arm of Voltron, and so goes on. I know these are seen more like jokes, but someone can wish)
One more thing: I’ve seen an Altean!Shiro / Druid!Shiro theory and I’m 90% sure that I reblogged it (I’ll put the link later but right now I can’t due to pc problems but it was made by @smolsarcasticraspberry) so this ramble sort of connects to that? Kinda? Because if him, who we said that represents Altea, whom is permanently damaged by Galras but is fighting back, turns out as Altean, then his heritage, his arm and his PTSD and his fight against it would form a giant-ass physical representation of the twisted story of these poor humanoid, pointy-ears and shapeshifting aliens.
(Besides, this could mean more Shallura so everyone’s happy)
Sorry if I made some grammar mistakes, but english isn’t my first language and I’m not that old to be super-fluent, but I wanted to express my thoughts on this since I’ve never seen a post mentioning this.
following up with another one of my favorite ladies: maddie fenton. i have a few posts about her already: xxxx
maddie is such a mom and she loves being a mom - she has her own life and hobbies, don’t get me wrong, but she’s there for her kids. there’s actual evidence from the show that she was involved in her kids lives and stepped back as they became more independent. she knows how balance her own life and her family life and also knows how much interaction each family member can tolerate. (jack needs constant interaction, jazz wants minimal interaction, and danny wants almost none.)
she’s crazy intelligent, hard working, and humble. she knows jack sometimes takes credit for the things she designs or makes, but she also knows he does it for attention not for the actual credit. she still gets annoyed about it and talked to him about it, but she doesn’t openly correct him anymore. but when jazz suggested that she try for that article of genius monthly (or whatever it’s called), she was completely surprised by the idea that she would talk about herself like that (and was extremely pleased when danny got a highlight instead). she doesn’t do the work for credit or acknowledgement, she does the work for her own personal reasons (whatever they may be).
she also has an interesting range of skills including martial arts, mechanical and electrical engineering and design (in multiple fields), theoretical physics, medical emergency response, and so on. she never stops learning and finds a way to make everything relevant to her work.
another she, that woman is patient and you can see that come across in everything she does. she doesn’t get frustrated when a project isn’t working out right - she keeps working on it or steps back. she is patient with her family and her kids’ friends and she listens to them. she may dismiss an idea but that doesn’t mean that she didn’t hear it in the first place.
she’s also forgiving - but only if it’s deserved. maddie didn’t forgive vlad for his actions in maternal instinct (even if she never told jack about it) until after he saved danny’s life in reign storm. even after that, she was wary of vlad and her relationship with him was never the same - but she still forgave him.
jack and maddie also have a very loving relationship - it’s actually the only relationship in the show that is actually mostly healthy. they have their issues (who doesn’t) but they know how to give and take and they also know how to communicate.
maddie is a naturally kind person who doesn’t let herself get taken advantage of and puts effort in all of her interests. she has faults - she can get sucked into whatever she’s doing to the point where she checks out, or she can get a little too protective when fighting ghosts, but she’s mostly a good person. i’m a little surprised that a lot of people want to display her as the one who experiments on ghosts because usually it’s jack who is doing that (but she is the scarier one so i get that i guess).
Okay, I promised myself I wouldn’t get into all the theories about season 4 of skam but here we are… There are going to be spoilers about the first three seasons on this post, you have been warned.
So I read some of the theories, but I did not see anyone talking about this, which is why I’m assuming it’s not being talked about. If it is I’m sorry and I would love links to the discussions.
The thing most people are missing when theorizing about who the main will be is the name of the show. I googled skam after I watched the entire series, which was stupid. I should have done it way earlier. skam means shame. It’s the one common thread (except for the same school and birth year) in all the mains. The main plot of each season explores something the main character is ashamed of and ends when they learn to live with it.
Eva was ashamed because she cheated. The season ends when she says she is done feeling sorry.
Noora is ashamed of her past sexuality (and eating disorder) and she has sex at the end of the season.
Isak is in the closet and he left his house to avoid his mothers’ mental illness. We end with him dating Even.
No matter who the main character is next season, they will be dealing with some kind of shame that will probably have to do with something that is taboo. Also I think this common thread is super cool and interesting and I hope I am not reading too much into everything.
Warnings: This is about Post-War Joe in his wheelchair, no harm is meant by this, just angst.
Imagine hearing a loud crash and a recognizable, “DAMN IT.” in your kitchen, you turn over to see Joe is gone.
“Joe, honey?” You called, walking into the kitchen to find him on the ground, a glass shattered on the floor and tears falling from his face.
“What happened?” You gasped, going to pull him back up into his wheelchair.
“I wanted some water, but I didn’t want to wake you up so I went to get it myself but I couldn’t reach it and when I did it slipped.” He bit his lip, small tears leaking from his eyes. “I just wanted to do something for myself, ya know? I wanted I do it myself!“ He choked out, slamming his fist on the cabinet he sat by.
You jumped slightly at the sound. You sat next to him, putting your hand over his, “Joe, look I understand things aren’t the same and you can’t do some things. But that’s’ why I’m here. Joe, I love you. All of you. And if this is what it takes to be there for you, to take care of you, then I’ll do it. Cmon, let’s go to bed.” You raised one of your hands to gentle wipe at his tears.
He takes a few deep breathes, looking into your eyes before nodding softly, leaning his forehead against yours. “I just thank god, I didn’t lose you.”
