i've never been like other kids

anonymous asked:

Ok, so you inspired me to keep stickers in my pockets at work and I've been handing them out to kids and I'm the only one at work who does it so all the kids know me. Anyways, today a kid (probably 4 or 5 or so) came in and saw me on the register and he grabbed his dad's sleeve and said "Dad! Dad! Look Dad! The sticker lady is here!!" And then my heart exploded and melted and then I died. Just thought you'd like to know.

I have never been this proud in my entire life

lol at that anon. glee and more specifically klaine helped me accept who i am and my own sexuality, and i know i wasn't the only one. "gay shows" help me see the representation i've never had.

Kurt and Blaine are Glee’s legacy.  They showed LGBT+ youth that gay kids can have everything they want- friends, a career, a loving relationship, marriage, and kids. That there others out there just like them.  That it does get better. 

Further, Klaine showed so many others, who perhaps had not been exposed to many LGBT+ people in their communities that in fact Kurt and Blaine were people just like them. They laugh, they cry, and they love just like every other human.

Because of Klaine, and in large part because of Chris and Darren who played these characters with heart and soul, we saw that Kurt, the boy we grew to love over a season and a half, could have a crush on a beautiful boy, get his hopes up when he learns that Blaine knows his coffee order, just to have them crushed. And then to have said boy say “I have been looking for you forever” after which they shared a first kiss that was in my opinion one of the best first kisses ever portrayed on TV because Chris and Darren wanted to tell this story in a true and genuine way:

In an article published by AOL Entertainment,

“On last night’s ‘Glee,’ the New Directions won regionals after hitting the stage with a pair of original songs – a first for the series – but that isn’t what anyone is talking about this morning. After months of hints and winks, fans of FOX’s hit musical finally got what they’ve been waiting for: The characters of Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss) kissed for the first time. And it wasn’t a peck. It also wasn’t overtly sexual or desperate, it wasn’t rushed or clouded with turmoil, and it certainly wasn’t played for laughs, the way many kisses between men are on TV. It was perfect.

“It’s hard to overstate the significance of the kiss between Kurt and Blaine on ‘Glee’ last night,” Michael Jensen, editor of Logo’s AfterElton.com tells PopEater. “Even better, it wasn’t the sort of kiss we saw back in the 1990s where the guys pecked each other on the lips – or worse, the camera cutaway – but this was a real kiss that hinted there is much more to come in this relationship. If we still needed proof how far gay characters have come on network TV, 'Glee’ just gave it to us.”

“’Glee’ has raised the bar of what it means to be inclusive on TV, and viewers are tuning in by the millions, sending a clear message to networks that Americans not only accept gay and lesbian characters, but they are beginning to expect them,” GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios tells PopEater. “It’s stories like Kurt and Blaine’s that continue to remind gay youth everywhere that there’s nothing wrong with being who you are.”

Glee then went even further and tackled the issued of Kurt and Blaine losing their virginity, a story line that paralleled Finn and Rachel. Making the statement that Klaine’s first time was just as beautiful, just as relevant, just as significant, and just as full of love as the heterosexual couple on the show. And Chris and Darren’s scene was perfection:

Thanks to Glee, we saw Kurt and Blaine navigate high school, long distance relationships, angst and heartache. The show often got it wrong, but when it got it right, it do so spectacularly. And never as amazing as our Klaine engagement:

And while the wedding certainly left a little to be desired, Glee still allowed our beloved Kurt and Blaine to declare their love to the world and state their vows, at at time before same sex marriage was legal across the country. A time when they had to cross state borders to tie the know and make it legal. And while the creators of Glee left a lot to be desired, as always, Chris and Darren took what they were given and displayed nothing but love and happiness that they were finally husbands:

In 2013, Klaine was named the Greatest TV Couple of all time by Entertainment Weekly (X)  The article that accompanied their win described their relationship as:

a timeless, groundbreaking TV love story

On the morning of the finale, in an article entitled “The Gay Legacy of Glee” Klaine was described as follows:

In season two, Kurt met Blaine Anderson (Darren Criss). Not only did he get a boyfriend, but a bonafide, epic love story that’s spanned the remainder of the series. Blaine’s dreamy debut,  is the kind of hearts-aflutter teen romance usually reserved for straight kids on TV. They’ve made-out, broken-up, lost their virginity, gotten engaged, broke-up again and eventually got married. They’ve evolved into the central relationship and one of the greatest young love stories in mainstream television. (x)

Another article, written in the Fall of 2016 entitled “The Cultural Significance of Glee” stated:

This character [Kurt] attracted many people in the LGBTQ community in which many found comfort in the character, knowing that they are getting some representation.

The couple [Klaine} became one of the most popular couples on television. The couple go through the same obstacles than any other straight relationship would have, creating the image that there is no difference between a straight or gay relationship. The couple broke up twice, causing an uproar of extremely upset and mad fans. By the end of the of show’s seasons, the two end up marrying each other. The couple known as “Klaine” has been “leading TV’s gay-teen revolution”(Entertainment Weekly). The actors have claimed that they have received hundreds of letters from fans both gay and straight saying that the couple has changed their views positively and helped them to keep an open mind. The phenomenon that is “Klaine” definitely has a positive reaction on the majority of viewers. While these two characters are not the only gay men on the show, they have been the most impact.

Kurt and Blaine made a profound impact on society and greatly influenced how people saw members of the LGBT+ community. And that they play a significant part in enabling LGBT+ youth to know that they were not alone.

For everything Glee got wrong, it will always have its legacy- Klaine.  And that is mainly thanks to two extraordinary men who fully committed to their roles, Chris and Darren. 

And for anyone to minimize this, to state that Chris is not proud of what he and Darren accomplished on screen, clearly knows nothing about him.  And that is heartbreaking.

My personal thoughts on all of the Nicktoons (so far as of May 2017)
  • Doug: Cute, sweet show. I love it. Sad how it tends to be labeled as "boring" now- it's still a great show. And of course it kicked off the whole "slice-of-life cartoons" trend so that's pretty cool. And yes, I did like the Disney version. But it's nowhere near as good as the Nick version.
  • Rugrats: Probably one of my favorite cartoons ever. Funny, clever, great characters, great music, great '90s aesthetics, and Klasky-Csupo's style is perfect. One of THE best Nicktoons..too bad it got dumbed down in 2001. Ugh...it was such a great show and then I don't know what happened there. Rugrats in Paris should've been the finale. But...even the later episodes are better than it's spin-offs.
  • The Ren and Stimpy Show: While I'm not the biggest fan of most gross-out shows, I LOVE this one. I'm pretty much with Mr. Enter on how most gross-out cartoons seem to be TRYING to be R&S but rarely getting it right. The characters are hilarious and it's so weird, it's funny. But the less about Adult Party Cartoon; the better.
  • Rocko's Modern Life: Amazing show and I'm really excited for the TV movie...whenever that's coming out. I love the visual style, the music, the characters, and I'm sure I love it even more as an adult than I did as a kid (and I did love it as a kid)
  • Aaahh!!! Real Monsters: Another great show (really, Nick was at it's highest point in the '90s, but the early-to-mid '90s especially). Love the characters, the intentionally ugly style...it's just great. Shame it tends to be so underrated.
  • Hey Arnold!: One of the greatest cartoons ever and probably the best Nicktoon ever. I love how it never tried to shy away from more mature themes that other kids' shows wouldn't try touching and it did a great job at it. Looking forward to the Jungle Movie, and of course...Helga was the best.
  • KaBlam!: I loved it as a kid. As an adult, I REALLY wonder why. The wraparounds try way too hard to be "hip", just akwardly shoehorning in references attempting to be the next TTA or Animaniacs, but falling completely flat. Characters were annoying but the voice acting was awesome. I do need to give the show credit for making me a ska fan. Most of the individual shorts kind of sucked but Action League Now! was hilarious and The Off-Beats was cute. And of course...
  • Life With Loopy: Yes I had to give this it's own mention because it's just that good. Nick really needs to give this one it's own series because the campy and surreal nature mixed with the overall sweetness was just a perfect blend, and the animation style was pretty awesome. The title character is just so perfect and so underrated. And I LOVE how aesthetically '90s the whole show is.
  • The Angry Beavers: Another one that's pretty underrated. I always really loved this show. I love all the banter and ad-libbing between Norbert and Daggett. And the music was great. I still listen to "Beaver Fever" and "I Think I Like You" now and again (also...Salem and Zim as beavers. How could you go wrong there?)
  • CatDog: Everyone hates this show but I really loved it. I love the character designs, CatDog themselves, and the theme song is NEVER going to leave my head. Sure, it's no Rocko or Hey Arnold!, but it's still a funny show.
  • Oh Yeah! Cartoons: Unlike KaBlam!, this one had different shorts in every episode rather than just four main short series, so it would take too long to go over all of them (not to mention that a good chunk of them aren't even online!). A lot of the shorts on this show were really funny and had some great visual styles. And Mina and the Count still needs a TV show.
  • The Wild Thornberrys: Really loved this show; I was the "animal kid" in my class so obviously I really liked this one. I just really love Klasky-Csupo. The movie was awesome and so was the show.
  • SpongeBob Squarepants: One of the funniest cartoons ever. While it got annoying seeing it become a schedule clog, the earlier episodes are still great. I heard that it got itself out of seasonal rot (look, let's pretend most of what came in-between the movie and the second movie never happened), but I rarely watch Nick anymore so I wouldn't know. Let's hope so.
  • Rocket Power: Not one of my favorites as a kid or as an adult (I wasn't really into the extreme sports craze), but my friends really liked it so I watched it with them and yeah, I enjoyed what I saw. It does have it's funny moments and while it's incredibly cheesy and way too late '90s/early 2000s that it hurts, it's a fun watch just for the cheese.
  • As Told By Ginger: A great show that I don't think I really appreciated enough until I got older. I guess I was just a LITTLE too young when it was new and by the time I was older and getting more into it...the show got cancelled. It's a really great show and one of Nick's best slice-of-life shows.
  • The Fairly OddParents: Really funny...for the first four seasons. S5 was when it started to slip and everything after that just got worse and worse. I still have fond memories of watching the older seasons and they're still good...but let's hope that jump to Nicktoons meant something.
  • Invader Zim: Great show, great animation, great character designs...did NOT deserve to be screwed over. I'm really looking forward to the TV movie. But...while I do love GIR (though he's not my #1 favorite character), the whole Hot Topic worship of GIR was pretty annoying. Let's face it- 2006/2007 on the internet was a bad time.
  • ChalkZone: Really cute. Admittedly I like the worldbuilding elements and characters a little more than the actual episodes (I did love all of S1 though; I think it was the best season), it's still great. S4 was...not the best though. From what we know about the canned S5, it was probably gonna be a lot better but...Nick had to be Nick. Let us have S5, already. And really- why didn't we get a ton of Snap merchandise?
  • The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron Boy Genius: Good show but I liked the movie more. Had some really funny moments and is so aesthetically early 2000s that it's pretty fun looking back on.
  • My Life as a Teenage Robot: Loved this one and I wish it got more recognition. Jenny was absolutely adorable and she was a hero to me as a kid (okay, looking back...I'm sure I had a crush on Jenny). Sad that the network treated it like shit.
  • All Grown Up!: The special was good. The first season was pretty good. After that I felt like I was reading glorified Rugrats fanfic. All it was really was "Ginger Lite" as ATBG was dealing with the heavier stuff while this was all the leftover stuff. Rugrats was great and had an interesting premise. AGU! was more of the same.
  • Danny Phantom: This was the last Nicktoon I REALLY loved as a kid. A really good show that could've gotten even more awesome had it's own creator not fucked it up. Ugh...I want a revival but PLEASE let it be by Steve Marmel and not Butch. Also Sam was like...my hero...as a preteen. And I've got tons of purple and black in my wardrobe (and the same purple lipstick) now that may or may not have been influenced by her (well, that and/or the fact that those are my favorite colors anyway). Like many others...I totally had a crush on Danny as a kid.
  • Avatar the Last Airbender: Okay, admittedly...I was never into this show. But I praise it for it's themes, animation, story...while I personally couldn't get into it, it still is a great show and probably the last really good Nicktoon for a while. And yeah- we don't talk about that movie.
  • Catscratch: I didn't really see enough of it but what I saw I liked. Wanted to see more but it came and went really fast.
  • The Xs: While the previews for it looked pretty good, I...did not like it. I watched it when it premiered and everything but it was a letdown. Felt like they were trying WAY too hard to make their own version of The Incredibles but with Erin Esurance-esque animation. Voice acting was great though (I noticed that Wendie Malick was the saving grace for TWO bad 2005 cartoons)
  • El Tigre: Okay this was RIGHT around the time I was starting to lose interest/outgrow Nickelodeon. Had a great premise and could've been a really good show and I was looking forward to it, but it felt like tons of other flash cartoons at the time and the voice acting could've been a lot better (great talents- direction-wise though...). Maybe if I were a younger kid when it came out, I would've liked it more, but...it was annoying. But the creator has made some other great stuff and I STILL need to see The Book of Life. I'm kicking myself for not seeing it in the theaters due to my work and college schedule.
  • Tak and the Power of JuJu: Didn't play the games but I already knew the franchise was pretty much dying by the time the show came out. It was awful. And we never heard from Tak again...
  • Back at the Barnyard: The movie had it's problems but was at least watchable. The show was just annoying and unfunny.
  • The Mighty B!: Unpopular opinion, but...I really loved this show. It has problems, but there was something about it I couldn't hate. Bessie was just such a great character. Wasn't a big fan of the grossout elements but otherwise it was really funny. Not a great show, but I was entertained enough.
  • Rugrats Pre-School Daze: YES THIS IS A REAL SHOW. Ugly art style (I'm pissed that K-C didn't use their signature style and went for something more "cutesy"; it just looked awful), bland writing, and really not a very interesting series. No wonder why it only lasted four episodes and didn't even air in the US until 2008 after all the episodes were released direct-to-video as bonus features on those Tales of the Crib DVDs (the less about them, the better). All it felt like was a desperate attempt to keep a dying franchise alive.
  • The Penguins of Madagascar: I was pretty neutral to the Madagascar franchise- saw the first movie in theaters and it was alright; wasn't dying to see the sequels so I never did. The show however never did anything for me.
  • Fanboy and Chum Chum: While I was already losing interest in Nick around 2005-2007, this was right around the time where I was officially done. I was a teenager at this point and not into this stuff anymore, but I stuck around for the old SpongeBob or FOP rerun and well...guilty pleasure Mighty B!. Then they changed the logo. And then this show came out. God...it was SO annoying. Annoying theme song, annoying characters...animation style would've worked a lot better if it was in 2D rather than CGI; it just fell way too deep into the uncanny valley for me. I wouldn't say this was the final nail in the coffin for me though; it was definitely the logo change.
  • T.U.F.F. Puppy: Didn't like it. Jokes weren't that funny. I did love the character designs though.
  • Planet Sheen: Sheen didn't need a spinoff. This was one of the worst ideas ever.
  • Kung-Fu Panda Legends of Awesomeness: Liked the first movie (I need to watch it again), haven't seen the sequels but I should. Was bored with the TV show.
  • TMNT: Haven't seen it but I've heard nothing but good things about it. Maybe I should check it out.
  • The Legend of Korra: Heard it was pretty good, but as I wasn't really into Avatar I probably wouldn't be too interested.
  • Robot and Monster: Never saw.
  • Monsters vs. Aliens: Saw the movie and it was...alright. Didn't think it was warranting of a TV series. Didn't watch it.
  • Sanjay and Craig: Saw some of it while waiting for another show to come and...I never wanted to watch it again. Not a fan of the character designs and it was really unfunny. But it's better than Breadwinners.
  • Rabbids Invasion: I did like the Rabbids games as a preteen but...by this time, I don't think they were that popular anymore. Didn't watch it. How is it still running?
  • Breadwinners: Worst Nicktoon ever (so far). Ugly characters, awful animation, shitty writing...how did this get greenlit? Nick...just because "it's for kids" doesn't mean "we can half-ass it"
  • Harvey Beaks: What's this? A GOOD NICKTOON? Yes- it's such a cute show with cute character designs, really nice animation...it's got a nice, nostalgic feel to it while also feeling like something brand new that Nick hasn't done. I'm pissed that it was screwed over.
  • Pig Goat Banana Cricket: Like Monsters, I like how it's "intentionally ugly" and some of the jokes/line delivery managed to be pretty funny, but is otherwise pretty meh to me overall. I'd like it more if I were seven, because hey, that's the show's target audience.
  • The Loud House: I'm glad it has positive representation (thank you for including gay parents in one of your shows, Nick!), but otherwise it's just too bland and cliched for me. Nice character designs; animation could be better. Again, I'd probably like it more if I were in the target audience.
  • Bunsen is a Beast!: Haven't watched it. Don't plan on it, either.

anonymous asked:

I have a parent who has a lot in common with descriptions of what it's like to be on the autism spectrum. They've never been diagnosed & wouldn't want to pursue it. I've started giving them the kind of accommodations & understanding autistic people say are helpful, with positive effects. I'm trying to get other family members to understand that some things (leaving the room if sensory overload, etc) are not deliberately rude. Without a formal diagnosis, they are hesitant. I'm not sure what to do

Anon, you’re a really good kid, and I’m really glad your parent has someone like you in their corner.

That said, I’m gonna need a moment to let my incandescent fucking rage at your family’s ableist bullshit, because you asked for concrete solutions, not a rant.

Actually, y’know what? No. I’m gonna rant, at least a bit, because this is relevant.

Anon, here’s what I would tell your family members:

I would tell them that treating a formal diagnosis as a prerequisite to try to understand or accommodate someone–especially someone they claim to care about–is incredibly callous and shitty.

I would say that this is not about a formal autism diagnosis; it’s about making family spaces and activities accessible to and inclusive of a member of the family, and if they can’t handle the mild inconvenience of trying to understand someone who isn’t intuitively just like them, they may want to sit down and radically reassess their notion of family, because that is sure as fuck not how family should be acting. And I would also probably tell them that people who behave the way they are certainly don’t line up with my definition of family; and I am prepared to act accordingly.

I would point out that your parent is likely already bending over backwards to accommodate behavior that may seem invasive, uncomfortable, or unpleasant to them; because that is what society–and apparently your family–demands of ND folks. And that the fact that your parent needs to do this places unfair strain on them, and probably presents a pretty significant barrier to them being able to enjoy or really participate in family gatherings and events, because it takes a lot of attention and energy.

If it seemed useful, I might also point out the numerous and salient barriers to formal diagnosis, especially for adults. But what I’d emphasize is that it shouldn’t take a doctor’s note to treat someone you care about like a person.

(In the name of productivity, I would probably be marginally more polite in the actual conversations than what I’ve written above. But that would be the gist of it.)

anonymous asked:

How would the DA:I companions and advisers react to a child Inquisitor being kidnapped? I've seen reacts like this for adult and teen inquisitors, but never for a child inquisitor.

Cassandra: she acts quickly to search and find them, and only andreste will have mercy.

Solas: he, unusually, is quite frantic and a little scared, he acts faster than the others ever thought possible to bring them back.

Varric: while he works to find them, he makes sure to stay level headed, he doesn’t want to make things worse.

Sera: she nearly goes out on her own, and once she finds the kid nappers, she uses many arrows to show her displeasure.

Dorian: he’s never been this upset before, and once they are found, he showers them with gifts, he doesn’t know what else to do.

Iron bull: he gathers the chargers and makes a search for them, he’s calm and when he finds them he makes sure they are ok, and that whoever took them pays for their crime of stealing his best friend.

Vivienne: she’s colder than ice when she finds the kid nappers, making short work of getting the inquisitor back.

Cole: he finds them, and helps them to get back home, he even makes them flower crowns to brighten their mood when they get back.

Blackwall: he is furious and he shows no mercy, but when he finds the inquisitor he is sure to be calm, he doesn’t want to scare them.

Cullen: he’s panicking and searching everywhere, when he finds them he felt calmer and takes them back to skyhold, where he will be sure to add more guards.

Josephine: she can’t believe someone stole the inquisitor! She’s a mess until they come back, she’s already paid nobles to search, when she sees their smile she simply hugs them.

Leliana: while her agents are looking for them, she is too, and she wouldn’t leave anyone or anything untouched until she found them, when she did find them she was kind and posted more spies to watch over them while they slept.

Going through a notebook from last fall and it’s 80% SoaD. 

Most of it’s too spoilery to post here, but here’s me trying to work out the scene order for a series of chapters:

I also found a deleted scene where Patrick actually gets the email about Maddie, which was cut for pacing reasons (and it wasn’t totally necessary):

Patrick skimmed through his email until one subject in particular caught his eye: Re: Blood Panel. He clicked on it–the response was from Grace, an old classmate who’d ended up as an MA somewhere up north.

Hi Patrick, this looks like a clear case of ectoplasmic contamination to me. I consulted with my boss, Dr. Stein, who handles most of the ectoplasmic cases here in Amity Park, and he agrees.

E-contam is rare outside of this area and a few other centralized locations, but it has distinct characteristics that are apparent in the blood of recently exposed individuals. Dr. Tobin of the University of Wisconsin has an ongoing study and published papers on it.

We have a specialist with the most in-depth knowledge of e-contam and its effects, Dr. Madeline Fenton. Dr. Stein recommends a consultation with Dr. Fenton before further steps are taken.

Patrick sat back and stared blankly at the white popcorn ceiling. “Ectoplasmic contamination? What the heck?”

He clicked into a new tab and tapped in “Dr. Tobin ectoplasmic contamination”– a series of very dry and very serious papers on ‘the effects of ghost exposure’ poppued up. Patrick frowned and typed in another search: “Dr. Madeline Fenton”

“What is this?” he murmured. It was like suddenly stumbling on a bizarre part of the wordl he’d never known had existed. Suddenly he stopped scrolling–there was Dr. Fenton again, standing next to her husband and a…. Gorilla? In front of them stood a very uncomfortable-looking and familiar kid. Patrick stared. He was younger and a lot shorter, but…

He returned ot the search bar and typed in Danny Fenton.

The page flooded with images of Danny–the Danny that Patrick knew. “Woah.”

What are your thoughts on James Sirius? I never see people talk about him and idk I've always been interested in his character. Also, do you think you'll ever draw more of james?

Not really sure, actually… Just like others, I don’t really think about him :) I think he’s cool though! He sounds like a very fun, energetic, mischievous, optimistic kid! :) And I’m sure people talk about him! You just need to find the right people :D Nobody I follow talk about him much, and that’s a good thing for me since I’m much much more favorable towards Albus who’s more “problematic” (which I like) ^^ But yeah, either way, James is fun! Not sure whether I’ll be drawing him any time soon, that’s not in my plans :)

UPDATE: A message from another anon:
For the anon wondering about James Sirius, I found that my curiosity regarding him was satiated after reading Put Your Guns Away, It’s Tea Time (and its sequel, Put Your Curse in Reverse) by bluetored. Excellent post-Cursed Child story with great characterizations of the Potter and Malfoy families! The James Sirius in those stories has easily become my canon :)

whisperroses  asked:

Can you make a headcanon of Floyd Talbert from meeting him to marriage/kids? I've been having slight feels for that Tab ( because I want to tap him :3 )

-When you first meet Tab omg, he’s latched into you

-He follows you everywhere you go, always complimenting you, always tries to be as close to you as possible

-but he’s also super respectful and makes sure to never make you feel uncomfortable

-When any other guys try to hit on you, he yells out, “Hey, back off she’s mine!”

-you’re just like ‘no I’m not lmao’

-after senseless flirting he finally approaches you to ask you out

-and you did not expect to see him, super dressed up, at your door with flowers and a shy little smile.

-you figured after all this trouble, you might as well try. So you give him a chance.

-he treats you like a Princess holy acorns

-after the night is over asks you if you would be willing to go on another date and he leans into you but whispers, “Stop me if it’s too soon”

-He gets everyone to help out when he asks you to marry him

-Winters calls you into the hall for a ‘briefing’

-but when you walk in, all the boys are standing in a line on each side of the room.

-as you walk down the middle the guys on the left side are handing you roses while the guys on the right are each holding up a sign that reads ‘Will You Marry Me ?“

-At the end is Tab, looking very nervous but also super smiley

-Welsh is the priest for the wedding shhh

-He dips you for the kiss and everyone goes hollering

-When you tell him you’re pregnant and he starts to smile, “You’re joking..Are you serious? Babe oh my god, really?” And you just keep laughing because he’s so shocked and he just keeps asking if you’re kidding or not.

-He cried when your child was born and picks out all the little features that belong to you

-He is a baseball dad omg his own little league!!!

(Hope you enjoy these!!)

I feel like dyspraxia is one of those things that people “forget” is a disability.

Like it’s never “she’s disabled” it’s always “she’s clumsy, she gets lost easily, she can’t throw for shit”

When I was tiny and my hands couldn’t close around a pencil, no one ever questioned it. It was right there, plain as day, I could not do this thing that other kids could. I was behind. I never had to convince people I really couldn’t do something. 

Actually, a lot of my childhood was me convincing people that I could do things, which…wasn’t any more fun. 

But sometime after I got to school it stopped being an “excuse”. My hands could close around a pencil now. ( barely, clumsily) so when my hands would shake holding a pitcher of water, or I lost my grip on something, or I tried to kick a ball and somehow kicked every patch of dirt around it before hitting it, it was always “you’re clumsy.” instead of “you have poor motor skills due to a developmental coordination disorder.:” even though, in my case, they’re one and the same.

I’m clumsy because I have poor motor skills because I have a developmental coordination disorder. The same reason I can’t tell left from right half the time, the same reason I still drop what I’m holding if someone bumps into me.

( It’s kinda like my autism, people hear the word and don’t always think of….all this stuff that comes with the word. Autism means I can’t read social cues, it means I info dump, it means I can’t handle big crowds without sensory issues. These aren’t choices. But they only hear “I’m autistic” the same way they hear my name. So I’m expected to act -and be?- neurotypical. And then because I do, because I’m so used to not expecting breaks I don’t give them to myself when I do need help or miss the mark when I won’t meet people in the eye, or I fidget, or I repeat stuff, or I have a hard time when my plans get changed it’s always “Well try harder, it shouldn’t bother you. That’s no excuse. Do better” 

Never mind…that…this is kinda my better. And without fail, every time I’m told this I try to find a new better, then when I need help with that one the whole thing starts all over again.) 

And I think I fall into the trap of thinking I have no -different- limitations because everyone treats me that way.

And then I’ll try a rope course and I can ‘feel’ my hand slipping even though my arms aren’t tired even though I’m not even halfway through. And I’ll either fall or have to climb faster. Use my legs and my arms and everything else cause my hands aren’t doing much but keeping me hooked on the wall and that’s gonna stop in T minus 5. 

Or I’ll hold a paint brush and I’ll ‘feel’ the way it’s not sitting right, how I can’t get it to twist just right to make a good stroke and have to move it in the general direction I need it and hope “close enough” gets it done. Or I’ll drop something right after it was given to me.

I still get nervous when I carry trays or anything that requires more than one hand. No one can see it but I’m usually focusing so much, I don’t talk to people while I carry things. And if it’s a box or something…I wrap my arms around it or use my back to lift it or…basically come up with all sorts of ways to ensure its fate doesn’t just rest in my hands.

Or I’ll be asked to hand write something and I can’t get the pen to make anything legible. Especially if I’m writing fast.

( I still don’t know how to explain what it feels like. It’s like I tell my hand to close tighter around the pen or to move and it just kinda….does it but limply? I can feel that it’s too loose or that it’s going somewhere it shouldn’t…but all the same, I can’t make it do it….it’s like wearing gloves I guess…it’s the only thing that comes to mind..or using your non-dominant hand…except I am using my dominant hand. And I know that it should be better.)

And whenever this happens I’ll always be so….surprised ( and frustrated but that makes sense, surprised doesn’t) Like it makes no sense because I’ve had this shit going on since I was tiny ( and I’ve been reminded in subtle and not so subtle ways that I’m clumsy and forgetful and can’t throw worth shit for just as long) but I’ll always look down and go “oh right, my hands are weird. I have a disability.”

Satie: Wow, I've never seen anyone like you here before! Who're you? What's your name? You live in Subcon?

Brody had been sitting by himself working on a sketch when a wow from an unfamiliar voice caught his attention & he looked to the source curiously before the rush of questions. “Uh… I’m Brody, I’m a Koopa Kid & yeah I live in Subcon with my boss. Who are you?”

he looked a bit nervous since he still wasn’t very used to other kids taking so much interest in him without something bad coming from it.

ʬ  Four tv shows you enjoyed that were made than more five years ago;

  1. Married With Children (A tactless show, with inappropriate jokes, and come backs. Plus a talented cast. A sitcom Zak probably shouldn’t have been watching as a kid, yet that had never stopped him.)
  2. Dexter (A serial killer who hunts down and kills other serial killers. You found yourself rooting for a man who wasn’t really a man to be rooting for. Well written, and intriguing. If you forget the finale, this is a show Zak would speak fondly of.)
  3. Desperate Housewives (This is one he won’t ever really admit to enjoying. But he did. It was a show that his grandmother had found herself into, and even his sisters had taken a liking to it. Therefore, he had been force to watch it, and within no time at all, he was just as into it as they were.
  4. F.R.I.E.N.D.S (Who hasn’t seen an episode of friends, and who didn’t like it? It’s a classic show, one that is rather easy to re-watch over and over again.)

Dark Side Of The Moon | Sam's reaction to Dean's heaven.

Watching Dean’s heaven must have been so painful to him, watching their mother he never knew taking care of Dean and loving him, while can’t even see Sam…  and then he saw the rest of the memory, and he was able to put his emotions aside and actually see Dean. For the kid he has been since forever, cleaning up their father’s messes. And he looks at Dean and there is no resentment in his eyes, only compassion, love and admiration.

wait pls expand on the "floridan cryptid status" of publix. i've never heard it described that way before lol

so fun fact the publix franchise is almost entirely exclusive to florida. as a kid growing up in south florida there was a publix on like every other block. walk five feet down the road? you’re at publix. lost in a town you’ve never been to before? you can rest easy knowing theres a publix. in fact there are so many publix grocery stores in florida that i’d never even heard of a safeway or giant or whatever until i was like 10 years old and visiting my aunt out of state, at which point i was devastated to learn that not everyone in the country had the joy of living next to their own publix. in fact most people had never even heard of publix. truly, it was heartbreaking.

in more recent years I believe they’ve expanded into georgia and possibly other nearby southern states, but it has been and always will be the exclusively floridan cryptid grocery store in my heart.

this is what arima and kaneki's domestic live would've been like if only he was still alive: both eloped and are now fugitives and live together with a squad of garden kids : ')

I need a 645 chapter fanfiction based on this beautiful AU so that I can print it on paper, cry on it until the ink smudges then eat it whole.

anonymous asked:

I don't see how villains are 'sexy'. I've never been attracted to the bad guys. I despise them. And I have never been attracted to killers, especially Vincent. He kills kids and others for no friggin reason other than he's a sadist. I understand if people like him as A CHARACTER, but I will never understand people wanting to love him as a person. He willingly killed 5 innocent children, and had the disturbing thought to put them in suits. THAT'S NOT ATTRACTIVE IT'S PSYCHOTIC!
