its super who time

say it with me, kids: barbara lake is an emotionally abusive, physically and emotionally neglectful mother who:

• intentionally or not raised jim to wait on her hand and foot, to feel responsible for her physical and emotional comfort and happiness, and to destroy himself for it

• to the point where he doesn’t seem to have any other hobbies that aren’t focused around doing so, at least at the beginning of the show

• this gutwrenchingly tragic, unhealthy ideal is now the cornerstone of his entire personality, and makes it much easier for the idea of destroying himself even more for more people to seem glorified and romantic and appealing. he’s easy fucking prey and in this case she raised him to be

• viciously rejected and insulted him the one time he tried to tell her something was wrong

• did so while he was in fact sending out massive red flags that he was being sexually abused by her fucking boyfriend

• constantly guilt trips and punishes him, explicitly or emotionally, for having problems, and makes them all about her own feelings (to the point where she even convinces most viewers to feel bad for her apparently lol)

• she’s consistently cold and hateful to him for OVER A MONTH, while he’s making pitiful little efforts to reconcile which are then snubbed, because he’s–again–displaying further signs of ongoing sexual abuse and not wanting to reach out to her after the behavior she showed last time he tried and she doesn’t like it; if she thinks it’s a specific thing like gang violence she should be asking him about it and sending him to a counselor

• speaking of counselors, guess what she doesn’t even fucking think to do until ‘oh lol i guess the school gave you one, aight?’ your son needs therapy, you’ve had at least a decade to seek therapy and clearly haven’t, fix your fucking shit you’re the adult here

• physically grabs his hands and yanks them around while looming over him in the hospital bed, uses cornering and aggressive body language while chewing him out (but haha it’s okay because he made her do it by telling her lies 8) ) (also she guilts him the whole time lol)

• stays in the ungodly shithole of a workplace that’s contributing heavily to her neglect when she could easily transfer to a less exploitative hospital, which speaks to mental health issues she’s refusing to address for her son’s sake

doesn’t even make sure that he eats. it doesn’t matter that he can cook, it doesn’t matter that she makes token protests and then doesn’t take any steps to do anything about it, fuck’s fucking sake she is his mother (edit for fairness’ sake: i forgot that she does try to cook sometimes and is just really bad at it, but also i get the niggling feeling that there’s still something Wrong there that i’m not sure how to articulate)

• the best part? HE DID TELL HER. HE TOLD HER EVERYTHING IN A LITERAL FUCKING SUICIDE NOTE, WHICH SHE THEN REFUSED TO READ BECAUSE SHE 'WANTS TO HEAR IT FROM HIM.’ SHE DOES NOT GIVE A GENUINE FUCK ABOUT HIS SAFETY OR WELLBEING, IT’S A PRETENSE FOR MANIPULATING AND LASHING OUT AT HIM BECAUSE SHE’S PISSY ABOUT BEING LIED TO (WHEN SHE CONFRONTS HIM TO HIS FACE ABOUT… SHIT HE CLEARLY COULDN’T SAY TO HER FACE). THAT’S WHAT THE WHOLE THING IS ABOUT. HER HURT FEELINGS.

the one really, truly shitty thing he does to her at the end of s1 is not her fault, but it is a culmination of how she raised him. everything else he does wrt her is him (at least as far as she should have the context for) being a teenager who needs her help and guidance, or is working around her failure to give it. or is coping with her ongoing methods of hurting him very much on purpose for being a child who doesn’t quietly, conveniently stay out of the way and take care of himself (and her) anymore.

i keep seeing really horrible abuse apologism about barb in the tags lately as we gear up for season 2 and it’s seriously fucking upsetting. so: barbara lake is an abusive, neglectful parent who has seriously fucked jim up for life, he’s not “'being shitty”’ to her by having adapted to her abuse in ways that inconvenience her, he does not owe her SHIT except an apology for the memory wipe, saying otherwise is insidious victim-blaming. okay? okay.

victorious // panic! at the disco

stay in the dark (a mileven fic)

hey there mileven readers, it’s me, ya girl savannah. the lovely @thecakegoesmeow requested Mike and Eleven hanging out in the cabin and Mike seeing El’s amazing curls for the first time. I hope it’s everything you wanted! (ao3 link) 


“What’s going on in there?” Chief Jim Hopper shouted, for the fifth time- and yes, he was counting. He stood outside the bathroom door, conveniently locked, knocking again. “Come on, kiddo it’s been like an hour.”

“20 minutes!” she yelled from behind the locked door.

Hopper looked around to show the empty room the confusion on his face. “What?” he shouted back.

“You said an hour!” he heard her yell again, “it’s only be twenty minutes.”

“It’s called an exaggeration, El. Wasn’t that your word of the day, what, like a week ago? I’d have thought you would have that one down, you sure seem to like ‘em.” he mused, laughing at his own joke. When the teenager behind the door didn’t respond, Hopper let out a sigh of exasperation. Guess it was still too early to start using Dad Jokes on her.  “Listen, he’s gonna be here any minute. You gonna stay in there the whole time he’s here?”

El’s reflection in the mirror frowned at her, and she untangled her goopy hands from her head. “Stupid hair,” she grumbled, her shoulders falling.

“What’d you say?” she heard her Hopper’s muffled voice ask. El’s forehead collided with the mirror as she let it drop, giving up altogether and letting her hands hang down by her sides.

“My hair.” El half whispered. Her eyes trained in on the the other girl in the mirror, her mind focused on the curls that stuck up way behind her head, willing them to obey and lay flat. They began to fall back in slow motion, El finally smiling. Stay, she prayed.

“It’s just a bunch of crap. You don’t want to know how we feel. When people ask you to express your feelings, they don’t mean your actual feelings they mean the feelings that they want you to have because people can’t deal with dark or scary or weird. They want you to smile and say ‘Yeah, I’m fine. Everything’s great,’ because then they can just go on with their boring lives and never think about you again.”

i know i normally do these in batches of like, four or smth but hey it’s jenna coleman’s birthday so have these two

I hardly see any posts out there about this so I guess I’ll be the one to do it. 

To all my beautiful followers with eczema, vitiligo, birthmarks, psoriasis, or any other skin condition-you are beautiful. 

For all my lovely guys, girls, and non binary friends going to prom this year and feeling self conscious as hell-I love you & you are beautiful. You slay in that dress or tux. I know it’s not easy but your skin condition does not define you.

I walked into my partners band rehearsal last night and they stopped what they were doing and immediately said I looked Absolutely gorgeous and honestly? What kind of validation

Okay but I just want to ramble about TAZ for a few moments (spoiler-free) because it makes my heart so full to know that it’s out there. 

I’ve recommended media – books, movies, music, art – to friends so many times in my life, but I’ve almost always had to do it with some kind of caveat. And that caveat usually is “It starts slow and is not that great, but it gets so much better, just give it time!”. 

But TAZ just…went all in, almost from the first moment, and all four of the McElroys committed so completely to the weird and wonderful and silly and hopeful world that Griffin created, and to their weird, wonderful, silly heroes. It’s such an earnest piece of work – you’d expect some kind of wink at the audience, some kind of “Oh, look at us, playing D&D, like nerds”, but when they do say that, there’s no hidden contempt for what they’re doing. They’re four people who love playing D&D and the story they’re telling together. 

That level of buy-in and commitment from performers/artists is a delight to experience. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve laughed or gasped out loud or cried over this podcast – this ding dong podcast, where an elf wizard named Taako knocks off one-liners constantly and the dwarf cleric has 1,999 party points and all Magnus wants is a dog – but the world they’ve created is so clear, so well-fleshed, so alive, that I can’t help being swept away. 

I love that it doesn’t hesitate to laugh at itself, but it never laughs at its fans, and it doesn’t shy away from strong emotion because feeling stuff isn’t cool. There’s always going to be a place for irony, but the absolute sincerity that TAZ brings in every episode is a true gift. And – adding this – I appreciate that they’re willing to listen and learn from their mistakes.

In short: please check out this podcast. If you like D&D, if you like fantasy, if you like science fiction, or if you just like the idea of four people sitting around and trying to make each other laugh and tell a good story – it will probably delight you too.

Who the fuck thought it would be a good idea to make Yukio the teacher of his brother’s class/a teacher at all? He’s a smol 15 year old child that shouldn’t carry the responsibility for a group of teenagers that are older than him like somebody give him rest
