is there any need though

uggghhhhh i really think i’m right but i do not want to get into an internet argument OR do all the reading i would need to do to argue it PROPERLY though i wouldn’t need to do any additional reading to dissect what’s being claimed but then i’m frequently a lot more exacting about precise meanings anyway sooooo i guess i will have to let it go

Happy birthday Zen!
Here’s my April Fools’ prank. I promised something spicy but you get fluff instead. I hope you’re not making a sad face. I’m smiling (: 

i have literally no sense of time beyond a couple days, either forwards or backwards

something happened a week ago? sure, but it feels the same to me as if it was three weeks ago, or three days. something else happened? ok, but i cant tell you if it came before the other thing, or after, or even on the same day

& if something is more than a week in the future, it just doesnt exist. i cant plan for it. i cant remember any plans people tell me about it. i cant prepare for anything beyond the horizon

its never had too much of an impact on me, but im scared of whatll happen if im a suspect for a crime

‘what were you doing 8pm last friday?’ something, im sure. maybe nothing. honestly i feel like ive only existed this second. ‘you told us this sequence of events before, but now youve changed the order. are you lying?’ i mean im not trying to deceive you but theres a 90% chance that anything i tell you is a false memory. isnt there someone else you can ask? if i try to give you the story again, itll be different again

LOIS:  Look, Clark, I know that I got a little thorny when you raised the red flag on A.C.
CLARK:  I was just trying to look out for you.
LOIS:  And I appreciate it.  I’ve just never had someone to help guide me through the shark-infested ocean of romance. … Not that I can’t fend for myself.
CLARK:  You know, I think I was wrong about our friend A.C.

Ok I need to address “Steve Deserved Better” in this fandom

Yes he did but so does Nancy.

They really cared about each other and no one was really wrong in that relationship.

Nancy’s guilt over Barb’s death and Steve’s inability to really emotionally connect to that event in a meaningful way eroded the foundations of their relationship.

And that was no one’s fault. Nancy and Steve are like 17 and 18 (or 16 and 17/18). Death, especially of a friend, and especially when you feel like you could have helped stop it, at that age is CRIPPLING (I know this from personal experience). And Steve didn’t have the frame of reference to really know what Nancy was feeling or understand it (And that is ok!!!!) but since Nancy didn’t know how to explain what she needed (totally reasonable!) and Steve didn’t know how to figure it out without that communication (also totally reasonable!) they could not keep moving forward. 

What Nancy needed was someone with that frame of reference (in comes Jonathan) that could in some form help her through the trauma and guilt mutually (He felt super guilty over Will’s disappearance and literally attended Will’s funeral) and Steve needed…well someone who was capable of having a mutual relationship at that point. And honestly I feel like Steve needs some single time to reflect on his growth as a person before he moves forward in any relationship. 

What this fandom needs to stop doing though is going “OMG Nancy was so unreasonable!!!!” and “Nancy was such a bad girlfriend!!!!” and just in general shitting on either Nancy or Jonathan for that entire thing.

Because honestly it was the best for all three of them and the way it turned out would have in a real world context (with less fictional monsters and more human ones being involved with the deaths and disappearances) been nobody’s fault.
