"I am Invisible," Introverted. The type that hides from the spotlight or behind others. Doesn't really give off any kind of vibe (which can be both positive and negative).
"I am Minimal," material items aren't a concern of those with an empty 2nd House. They aren't possessive. Generally hold experiences above gifts. (Really hard to buy gifts for because they'd rather do something than get something).
"I am Neutral," these people aren't swayed toward any side of things. Tend to be of average intellect for the sign that lands here. No specific pride or feelings that aid with intellect unless something interacts with Mercury.
"Without Nurture," the family life didn't play a huge role in this persons personality, whether it be the normalcy of their family unit, lack of parental action, ect. (How that is depends on the sign the house is in).
"I Enjoy," these people are less passionate about things and rather enjoy life as a whole. They're love life heavily depends on their Venus. These people may find little enjoyment in life, so they're generally thrill seekers and risk takers. They aim to feel... in any way possible.
"I am Healthy," these people have no specific health difficulties or proficiencies. They generally don't find people as a whole interesting and may show little care for areas that you'd be considered a "People Doctor" for, which includes Psychology and other Doctorly practices.
"I am Alone," These people are totally independent and will not change for anyone. They may fear loneliness, but they refuse to change to increase their chances. They are capable of Love, but they will not be forced to do anything. Traditional affairs are far and few between in love, and they may be considered unlucky. Marriage is unlikely, or at least unlikely to work out, due to personal choices, or legality issues. This does not, however, mean they will not find a life long romantic/sexual partner.
"I am Disinterest," Very few people with this placement end up in Astrology or anything occult, with general skepticism and disbelief. (This goes double if the 12th is empty as well). These people are somewhat unaware of the possibility of death, and when it's brought to their attention they may get somewhat upset. These people do not have a central point of common change, and may undergo almost complete personality changes at times.
"I am Surface," These people are exactly how they appear. They hide nothing. Some people would say they have disinterest in things like politics, philosophy, and spiritual journeys, however I would say that they are simply unwilling to present or discuss information without being told to. The Aunt that tells everyone to stop talking about politics at dinner? Empty 9th House.
"I am Above," These people find social classes and the divide between types of people irrelevant, and care not of the social repercussions of their actions. They don't care about honor. Possible anarchists.
"I am Individual," These people have secular social groups, and their goals, ambitions, and interests tend to benefit themselves, or are random acts of kindness with little dictation. These people tend to steer clear of large groups, but not avidly avoid.
"I am Forward," These people have little imaginative dictation. What happens in their mind stays in their mind. Skeptics. Average memory. Fact based. Little to No enemies. Keeper of Secrets. Truth Speakers. May also steer clear of large social groups. May have a tendency to isolate themselves.
*Please keep in mind there is little information on these, and it really does differ from sign to sign in each house. This is a general statement, and if seen as incorrect feel free to message and discuss this with me, as I am to become a better astrologist and if I'm spreading some sort of misinformation, I strive to fix my mistakes. Thank you.
And then it’s done, it’s gone––they have all dissipated into a multitude of lives and affairs, and he’s standing hollow-chested. He leans back and leans against the rotor, muscles trembling and fingers stiff.
I feel like I’m always pushing people away even if I don’t want to. And then they’ll eventually give up trying because they’ll finally realise I’m not worth that much effort. I don’t want to but I’m constantly punishing myself in every way possible.
Why do you draw FSC as tigerlily's dad? Is that part of your head canon?
actually it’s not my head canon
in the cookie run comic series, there was mentioned of fall of cookie kingdom and canonically tiger lily and princess cookie’s are twin sisters. Their mother, Queen cookie perished during destruction of the kingdom.
Every cookies know that there’s long lost princess but they don’t know who it is. During the chaos, King cookie saved princess cookie and escaped but while tiger lily cookie was rescued by Moonlight cookie.
To prevent further destruction Moonlight cookie used most of her magic and need to sleep very long time to gain her magic back. Since she need to recharge her magic by sleeping, she called Fire spirit cookie to raise tiger lily because she trusts him.
Also he has no idea about the destruction of cookie kingdom and everyone blamed him.
Her last word to FSC was
“Take the little one to somewhere isolated and safe… please watch over her until she’s grown.”
So he took her to jungle.
He didn’t let tiger lily to see him (I dunno why I guess he didn’t wanted her to be attached to him?) He was hidden from her but prevented any dangers to near her.
For instead how did tiger lily met butter tiger?
He tried to eat her but got beat up by FSC.
Couple of years later tiger lily grown up and she attempted to eat an unfamiliar plant, FSC shouted her (still hidden from view) that it’s an poisonous plant.
Tiger lily replied “ Oh! It’s you Jungle guardian spirit, you’re always there for me!”
FSC states that “ I’ve always been watching over you and didn’t I told you not to eat plants that’s unfamiliar?”
He thoroughly explains to her that which one is poisonous and which one is not. After couple of more years watching over her FSC realize that she no longer needs him and went back to Dragon’s Valley.
So I draw FSC as a fire dad because of this chapter of the comic. I thought it was kinda sweet yet lonely.
This website’s mentality that teens/young adults making displaying some problematic behavior is as unforgivable and damning as the words and actions of middle aged bigots and deserve death and doxxing is frankly terrifying, especially since so many suggestible teenagers and adults are being dragged into this black and white morality puritanical brand of views and will often continue to grow up with this exposure whilst being manipulated and emotionally abused by those who are “protecting them” is frankly terrifying.
[Drawing of a stick-figure girl dancing with a tambourine. Above her are the words, “POTS Problem #48: Isolation!” The girl sings, “Oooone is the loneliest number that you’ll ever doooooo…”]
I asked my creative consultant (aka my mom) if “losing people” and “isolation” were different enough topics to warrant separate comics. Her response was a resounding yes–“One is about people walking away, while the other is, ‘I can’t walk out’.” We peeps with chronic illnesses are often confined to our houses, unable to work or attend school or go to parties or participate in “normal” activities. When you can’t attend things often enough, eventually people stop inviting you, which can create a great deal of loneliness. A good alternative if you wanna hang out with your spoonie friend, especially as the holidays draw near and the loneliness becomes all the more poignant? Find an activity in a location that is easy to access and pretty chill–like chatting in a quiet coffee place, or taking some cookies and tea directly to them for a gentle visit.
I just noticed something about Jack and Ashi’s relationship. After rewatching the episodes I realized how fucked up Jack was in episode 1-3.
Jack is miserable. I don’t remember him smiling hardly at all. I think the only time he was a little happy was when he was with that wolf. Every other time he is just full of regret and is considering suicide.
It really isn’t until episode 4 when he and Ashi are trapped in the beast when Jack shows any signs of playfulness or smiles.
He is teasing her almost that entire episode. It is kind of like he’s flirting with her a little bit, saying things just to get on her nerves. Before that episode Jack was just depressed. Who he is in episode 1-3 is almost a total contrast to how he acts in episode 4 and it’s because of Ashi.
It’s obvious that he likes the companionship. He likes having someone to talk to and can reply back even if it’s negative. He’s lonely.
In episode 5 Jack leaves Ashi. He did his part in saving her and goes about his way. During the camp fire scene when he is alone he sees visions again of his anscerors in agony. He is back to feeling that guilt and feeling isolated. He says “please stop.” The next shot is of Ashi. She asks him to prove to her that Aku is evil. I think that was great foreshadowing. How does Jack get over this guilt and reach happiness? Ashi. They answered it right there.
After Jack shows Ashi how Aku corrupted the world Ashi not only sees the light but she wants to do something about it. She asks him “What do we do?”
He says “nothing.” He has lost hope. After episode 6 when Ashi literally stops Jack from committing suicide he is hopeful again in defeating Aku. He has the strength to go look for his sword. It was because of Ashi.
It’s nice to look back on the early episodes and see how much the characters have grown. It’s kind of easy to see the change in Ashi after meeting Jack. Her whole tone of voice changed after episode 5. It’s also nice to see how Jack has changed because of Ashi. Even before she became a heroic figure she was already giving Jack some joy.
Talking About Representation: Choose Your Words Wisely
So, today, I’m going to be cutting straight to the chase.. Let’s talk about ace representation, and where we need improvement and to dismantle stereotypes. We probably need more male and nonbinary representation, because people usually associate ace with being female. Some older representation would be nice, and so would some representation of other marginalized groups like POC and fat people, to name a couple. These are all things I see said often, and I totally agree - it’d be great to have some well written ace rep like this! These are good conversations and we should continue having them.
We need to stop saying that “most ace rep is aro” (or even that the ace characters that exist are “/always/ aro”) to justify having more allo ace rep. We don’t need to justify it. Having allo ace rep is great, and I absolutely do not want to take away the push to get more of it or stop you from promoting what you find. Saying “most ace rep is aro” or any variation thereupon is not a good thing, though, and it needs to stop. Here’s why.
First off, you’re likely making an arospec uncomfortable. This idea is used a lot in some pretty negative applications - primarily to fight against more aro representation, or even existing aro representation. The first thing I associate this phrase with is someone who insisted that a character would be “better” representation if they weren’t aro, trying to erase their canon aromanticism. Not all arospecs with have this negative association - some may be fine - but it’s similar to saying “at least we can still love” or “at least they’re not aromantic!”*. It’s going to bother a lot of people, even if they can’t put their finger on exactly what’s bothering them
130 works have an asexual chararcter. 59 of those characters are also aromantic.
That’s 45% - slightly higher than the actual percentage of aromantics, but not a majority. In fact, that means that there is about as much alloromantic rep as there is aromantic rep.
When book series were accounted for, and repeat characters were removed, the number of works dropped to 105. Aromantic characters dropped to 53. 50% - still not a majority.
(For reference purposes: 66/76
or 87% of aromantic characters were asexual .)
ToastyStats: Asexual and Aromantic Fanworks on Ao3** (pt 1 and pt 2)
While aromantic + asexual were the most popular combination, they only appeared together in 720 works. (7.5% of works with an a-spec tag).
In contrast, aromanticism with no asexual tag had 727 works (7.6% of a-spec works) and asexuality with no aromantic tag showed up in 7023 works (72.9%).
Clearly, despite asexuality and aromanticism being the most common a-spec combination, the majority of the asexual works do not call their character aromantic.
SPN, with 700+ works regarding asexuality, did not have more than 50 works about aromanticism. 11% of Riverdale fanwork features an asexual tag, however, less than 0.5% of Riverdale fanwork features an aromantic tag.
When comparing the “Asexual [Character Name]” tag to the ship category, only one character had majority general fiction. All other characters had less than 35% general fic.
I know some of this is worded funky, and may be a bit confusing - if you’re confused, try the graphs in the links!
So, as I wrap up this post, I’m just gonna ask that you be careful of the language you use and try to avoid phrases like this in the future. Aromantics have a hard time in a-spec communities as it is, and we often feel isolated. Please don’t contribute to that in the future. Just…choose your words wisely. Please don’t make arospecs feel like we are unwanted, a burden, and bad representation. And thanks for listening.
After the opening scene of the clip where we learn about Sana’s past bullying experience this is a scene that hurt the most during the clip.
You realize how alone Sana must feel, how powerless over her life that she even decides to isolate herself from Isak, with who she shares one of the most close and incredible bonds than with anyone else on the show. She is so hurt that she needs to feel like she has some control over the situation, and that she has to put all these walls around her to make sure she will never hurt anyone and she will never get hurt again. When we see her distancing herself from the girl squad we think they hurt her (some even without realising they did so) and thus, she is isolating herself from them to not get hurt again. But with Isak it’s different. She feels guilty about Isak getting hurt, that was apparent in the clip right before the hiatus, she believes she is to blame for the balloon squad fight and so believes she hurt Isak. So she pushes him away too, because even though he didn’t hurt her, she feels like she hurt him and that brings a lot more pain to her than the other way round.
And then we have the sentence “Du er alene” which can be viewed from more than one perspective.
-She feels alone and so projects those feelings on Isak and tells him that he is alone too, much like Even would say “everybody is alone anyways”.
-It’s also a cut-out sign of her distancing herself from him, she basically tells him that she won’t help him with the biology course, which translates to her attempting to remove herself from their bond.
-Last but not least, it is a low blow for Isak who told Even last season “Du er ikke alene” only to now be told by Sana the excact opposite. His mind definetely made that connection the minute he heard that, and i’m interested to see how he interprets it.
Let’s hope Isak will see through Sana, approach her and help her with what she’s going through just like Sana did for Isak last season. She deserves it that’s for sure.
Ah, here I see my first story for the event week, set in the HP AU! I’m adding a request I got about them having complimentary Patronuses in too. This baby is just shy of 7k words, so enjoy!
Another summer set behind her as the Hogwarts Express made its way from the station. MC wandered down the corridor, looking for her friends. She hadn’t heard from them for much of the summer, save for an occasional owl here and there. Last she knew, they had made a new friend with some girl and were enjoying spending the summer with her. MC paused at a compartment, a familiar flash of mint hair catching her eye. She peered in, to find Jumin and Jihyun laughing and talking with a young blonde witch, her silver and green scarf contrasting her emerald eyes. They were all too lost in conversation to notice MC standing there, and as much as she could feel the jealousy bubbling inside her, she chose to find an empty compartment and seethe in private. She set to sorting her bag and trying not to relive the way the boys’ eyes glimmered as they laugh at some inner joke. The way they didn’t even notice her standing there, looking in from the outside.
The journey was long and uncomfortable, she had never been a fan of isolation and couldn’t shake the hurt of seeing them so entranced by someone other than her. Jihyun didn’t sting as much, but Jumin…. She decided not to think about it too hard.
