just for your sake

Teen!Richie Tozier joining the Drama Club headcanon

Based off this post by @kitkaysmeow​ thank you for the inspiration:)) 

((Let’s imagine they all are in high school now))


  • This was in Freshman year of high school
  • Tbh Richie had never considered the possibility of his hyperactivity resulting useful in anything
  • Though he had always been the Drama Queen™ of the club
  • But one particular day he was being extremely annoying
  • Like, a whole new level of annoyance (is that a word¿?)
  • He was driving the Losers crazy, overreacting at any tiny thing they said
  • Like Eddie would go “hey Bev nice top” 
  • And Richie would be like “Of cOuRsE yOu LiKe HeR mOrE tHaN mE”
  • Dramatic looks, fake tears and all
  • At one point Stan got so exasperated he literally snapped at him 
  • “FOR FUCKS SAKE RICHIE JUST GET YOUR DRAMATIC ASS TO DRAMA CLUB ALREADY!”
  • Richie just stayed silent as everyone agreed with Stan’s idea
  • A few weeks later, they couldn’t find him anywhere after class and they wouldn’t leave without him
  • And just when they were about to leave, an hour later, he came down the hall with the happiest grin on his face
  • The Losers just looked at him like ?? the fuCk??
  • And he’d be like “oh you waited for me, so nice of you guys”
  • “Wha-what the fuck were y-ou do-doing?!”
  • “Oh, you know, just some theatre rehearsal”
  • And everyone just stopped in their tracks and stared at him
  • “You joiNED THE DRAMA CLUB?!” this was Ben breaking the silence
  • Richie just shrugged and nodded as they continued their way home
  • He was being EXTREMELY quiet then, which worried everyone
  • “Okay Tozier what the hell is happening?
  • “Nothing, Eds”
  • “Of course something is happening– you’re quiet!”
  • “It’s just… oh, fuck it. I got the lead!”
  • A loud “WHAT THE FUCK” was heard in unison from all the Losers
  • They just couldn’t believe it because HOW ON EARTH?!
  • So Richie tells them how he arrived at the auditions without having even read the script
  • So he had to put his improvisations skills to practice
  • He basically nailed it and got the main part
  • Everyone was so fucking proud of him and excited and wanted to attend the show
  • The director would literally CRY tears of joy when Rich just got carried away with the scene and became the character himself
  • They all helped him with character development and line rehearsing
  • Also fished him out of his insecurities
  • “What if I ruin the whole show?!”
  • “You’re gonna own the fucking play, Rich”
  • BOi cAN SinG
  • This was Eddie’s and Bev’s favorite part: song rehearsals
  • Sometimes they would even sneak into their rehearsal and make Richie laugh until the director kicked them out of the room
  • But the only one who was allowed backstage was Eddie, of course
  • Although it wasn’t too often because Rich would rather him see the play on show night
  • FINALLY IT WAS SHOW NIGHT
  • Richie was so nervous the whole day because HOLY SHIT EVERYONE WOULD SEE HIM ON STAGE
  • He just wasn’t used to this much attention
  • EVERYONE WAS BACKSTAGE WITH HIM just watchin him get on costume and ready for the play
  • CURTAIN CALL
  • The whole Losers Club was sitting FIRST ROW and cheering the loudest anytime their boy appeared or did something cool or just nailed the scene
  • They could also tell when he improvised his lines, whether he forgot them or just wanted to add a lil bit of himself
  • And his song just BROUGHT EVERYONE TO TEARS DEAR GOD PLEASE HAVE MERCY
  • At the end of the play Eddie met him backstage and gAvE Him FlOWerS oH mY 
  • And the all went out to celebrate Richie’s first night onstage
  • From then on, Richie acted in over 7 plays, having the lead in many of them
  • Everyone at school knew him and he became very popular
  • OF COURSE he never forgot about his friends, the Losers
  • He wouldn’t have made it without them

I got carried away smh sorry it’s shitty

  • my nemesis: i'm going to hurt you of course but first i'll go after all of your friends and--
  • me: i don't.
  • my nemesis: ...what

  • me: nope
  • my nemesis: and you aren't like.. lying. for your own/their sake
  • me: no i genuinely just don't have any and i wanted to save you the trouble of having to start the process of looking into it only to find nothing to work with, so
  • my nemesis: oh. ah. wow. that's.. polite. of you. i guess
  • me: mmhm
  • my nemesis: this is like.. seriously bumming me out right now. are you.. busy tonight? oh. fuck. obviously you aren't. sorry. i'm sorry. wasn't trying to be insensitive. god. anyway. we're.. going to go to the movies, okay? i'm not getting any satisfaction out of.. that conversation. any joy just.. whoosh. right out the window. that whole exchange just truly ruined my current state emotionally and i'm.. getting you out of the house. asap

This is the cast of the hit TV comedy Brooklyn Nine Nine:

It is a well-rounded cast.  The characters are different people with different dreams and goals and personalities and priorities, and they work together.


These two are Amy Santiago and Rosa Diaz, two Latina women:

Although they are both Latina women, they are very different characters.  Amy is a nerdy, easily-excited perfectionist and Rosa is a blunt, tough-as-nails badass.

If I were to ask “what’s your opinion of the Latina character on Brooklyn Nine Nine”, you would have to respond with “which one?”.


These two are Captain Raymond Holt and Terry Jeffords, two black men:

Although they are both black men, they are very different characters.  Captain Holt is strict and humourless, Terry is a musclebound teddy bear.

If I were to ask “what’s your opinion of the black man on Brooklyn Nine Nine”, you would have to respond with “which one?”.

A lot of people don’t like “tokenism” in fiction.  And, it’s true, if you’re adding in a black character just for the sake of representing all black people in your fiction, it can be an example of poor writing.

But, when you watch Brooklyn Nine Nine, none of the characters above feel like token characters.

Now, if I were to remove Amy Santiago from the show, many people might think of Rosa as the token Latina.  And, as the only Latina, many people might think that she was there to represent all Latina women. They might say “Is that really what you think all Latina women are like?  That they all wear leather jackets and grunt in monosyllables and beat people senseless?  What a terrible stereotype!

If I were to remove Captain Holt from the show, many people might think of Terry as the token black man.  And, as the only black man, many people might think that he was there to represent all black men.  They might say “Is that really what you think all black men are like?  That they’re all vain, overmuscled behemoths, tamed into domesticity?  What a terrible stereotype!”.

It is precisely because the show features multiple examples of each of these demographics that they escape stereotyping.  If you see one Latina woman who exhibits aggressive traits, you might think that all Latina women have anger management problems.  If you see two Latina women, though, and one is aggressive and the other isn’t, you would not reach that conclusion.  It would be impossible for someone to watch an episode of Brooklyn Nine Nine and come away thinking “ah yes, now I know what all Latina women are like” or “ah yes, now I know what all black men are like”.

It is fine not to approve of tokenism in fiction.  It’s fine!  Including a character purely to check that character’s ethnicity or gender or disability or sexuality off of a checklist can be terrible writing.  Token characters can perpetuate negative stereotypes, or even help to create new ones.

But, if you don’t like token characters, the answer isn’t less diversity.


It’s more.

How To: Develop Your Characters

I think we’ve all been in the situation where we want to write about a specific character but have no idea how to approach it. For some reason, despite them being your own character, you have no idea how they would act or what they would say in a certain situation. Sometimes, if you even write about your character(s) at all, when you read it back they seem fake or 2-Dimensional. Unrealistic, if you’d prefer.

In this post, I am going to give you some exercises to get past hollow characters and help develop your writing. 

1) Empty Their Pockets

Pretty simple. Think of what your characters would have in their pockets on a day-to-day basis. It doesn’t have to be anything super extraordinary, of course. Just start writing some everyday items down and think about whether your character would have these items in their pockets. 

Let’s take a look at one I did for my characters earlier. (sorry that just sounded like something from Blue Peter)

For example:

Character A’s Pockets Contained:

pack of gum, empty pack of cigarettes, library card, NOKIA brick phone

So, here a few things you can tell about Character A simply through the items in their pockets. They visit the library often, meaning that they probably have a high interest in reading (this also could be a sign of intelligence). Judging by the fact Character A has both a pack of gum and cigarettes this could indicate a potential smoking habit, chewing gum is a known way for helping people quit smoking. The pack of cigarettes could show that they are not very good at restricting themselves and could in fact be addicted and finding it hard to cope with smoking. Finally, the NOKIA brick phone shows how they may want to feel connected to people or want to allow their friends/family members/whoever to be able to contact them but have no desire to get the latest model of phone or perhaps believe that having such a device would distract them unnecessarily. 

When doing this exercise, think about key objects which portray certain details about your character! Try not to overthink it too much, write whatever comes to mind and put it down on the page! After writing down a couple objects, go back through them and feel free to edit out items you think are unnecessary or add items which you think would suit the character. 

2) Go Through Their Daily Routine

Again, another easily explained exercise. Go through a regular day in your character’s life, try and do this exercise as if it was happening before whatever events occur in your story or novel. This way it makes it easier to understand your character before they met a secondary character in the novel or before whatever events happened in your writing which may affect their routine. You don’t need to include every single detail in your description, just brief notes or key events which occur during their day would be fine. You can make it as short or as long as you wish, maybe don’t just do it for one day in your character’s week perhaps do it for multiple days. 

Does their routine change during the week? What time do they wake up? What time do they go to sleep? Are they punctual with going to work? Do they do any other activities outside their day-job? These are the kind of things you may want to ask yourself when writing it. 

3) Give Them Fears/Phobias

Everyone fears something: whether it be a phobia of spiders or oblivion, everyone has a fear. Giving your character a phobia makes them seem more realistic, it allows your reader to easily relate to your character.

However, just having a phobia for the sake of it doesn’t help develop your character at all. If you give them a terrible phobia of snakes and they come across a snake and suddenly within moments are able to get over their fear just like that, it’s not a phobia. It’s more of a mild inconvenience than anything else. The reader needs to feel convinced by their fears, they would feel more dissatisfied with your writing if they felt the character could dismiss anything and everything than knowing them being confronted by their fears could be a possible problem. Besides, it would give them no reason to motivate or encourage the character if they knew it was impossible for them to be defeated by anything. Still, this does not mean that your character has to be destroyed by their fear. There is a very big difference between simply dismissing your character’s fear and perhaps overcoming it in the future.

An easy way to write your character possibly overcoming their fear in the future is that when they first encounter that fear, add an element of chance or fate into it. For example, if a character were to move to get away from the creature which may be coming towards them; in the process of getting up, they could slip which could cause their legs to lash out towards the creature. The sudden movement may just be enough to scare the creature away, this way it does not appear to the reader as ridiculous or uncharacteristic courage but instead accidental bravery. This sudden revelation that the character’s horrible fear may not be as all powerful as they first thought could be the first step for them to slowly overcome that fear.

Don’t believe me? Let’s think about this for a moment. Imagine your character, let’s call them the Protagonist™, is stuck in a terrible situation. It doesn’t matter what the situation is but let’s say it’s something which involves them being trapped in a room with a snake. I’m going to give you two examples, both involving the same situation.

Example #1:

Protagonist watched with wide eyes as the snake slowly slithered towards them. The snake paused for a moment, it hissed lowly as it waited for Protagonist to move, waiting for the right moment to strike.  Not hesitating for a single moment, they suddenly realised how dire the situation was and jumped to their feet. Their heart pumping wildly as their body was filled with adrenaline, they were terrified yet they had to do something. Protagonist grabbed the nearest thing to them and stepped towards the snake.

“Get away!” They threatened, “Get away!”

Example #2:

Protagonist watched with wide eyes as the snake slowly slithered towards them. The snake paused for a moment, it hissed lowly as it waited for Protagonist to move, waiting for the right moment to strike. The blood in Protagonist’s veins ran cold as the snake grew closer and closer, Protagonist couldn’t move. They begged and screamed on the inside to move away, to get away as far as possible. They had lost all control of their movement, their fear had consumed them. They were frozen to the spot and could only watch as the snake widened it’s jaw, ready to bite down on it’s prey. It widened it’s jaw once, twice - suddenly, Protagonist gained back their instincts. Fleeing seemed like the only realistic option and seconds before the snake could chomp down on their ankle, Protagonist stumbled to their feet. They stumbled backwards into a puddle of water which had pooled behind them and their ankle rolled as they slipped, their legs accidentally lashing out towards the predator. The snake recoiled backwards in shock before deciding that the risk wasn’t worth it: it quickly retreated back to it’s nest, disappearing from Protagonist’s view.

Now, hopefully you see what I mean. I think we can all agree that the second example is a lot better than the first one. 

4) Create Their Flaws/Bad Habits

No one is perfect, this includes your characters. 

If you’re finding it challenging to think of any flaws, try to think of some bad habits. It doesn’t have to be anything so terribly bad that’s it’s illegal. Think simple when it comes to this exercise. It can range from anything between chewing their nails to swearing. 

It might help to try and develop these bad habits into possible flaws or weaknesses. If your character keeps biting their nails that might be a sign of nervousness or anxiety. So, creating bad habits might be a good way to show a certain trait your character may possess. 

Flaws are important as well. Let’s be realistic, if no character had any flaws then every single book we read would be filled with a bunch of characters which are exactly the same. Besides, what’s a hero without it’s villain? 

So, to give you a few ideas, let’s go back to superheroes. Maybe a hero is so set on doing the right thing that they lose sight of what they want? Perhaps it gets to a certain point where they can’t handle that hollow feeling inside of them that they grow arrogant, selfish or even stubborn? There’s a story for you right there. 

Not only that, by giving your characters flaws it is possible that you could work that into your story somehow. This way, not only will you get to show off your amazing character development, but it could also be an exciting point in your storyline.

Write down some ideas, think of flawed personality traits and just write them down! Try to write down at least five straight off the bat, for each one you don’t like you should think about why it doesn’t suit your character. You’re bound to find one flaw you’re happy with!

5) Write Some Scenarios

Now that you’ve developed your characters, go ahead and write them in your story! If you think you still need a bit of practice, try writing something about them being in a certain scenario. It could be anything from ordering their favourite coffee to being trapped in a prison: just write it! Try not to think about it too much, just do whatever feels write (I unintentionally made that pun but i’m not deleting it). 

It doesn’t have to be long either, just a couple paragraphs would be fine. Try to focus on body movements and interior thoughts, it would be ideal if your character was on their own in the situation: that way you can get to know the character on their own a lot better. No other characters means no distractions. It’s just you, the wonderful author, and your character - there is an endless amount of possibilities for you! 


Have faith in yourself too! Nobody knows your brilliantly developed characters better than you do, so here’s your chance to show them off! If you’d like a second opinion, write something about them and give it to a friend/parent/random stranger etc. to read! If they don’t want to, make them read it anyway! 

I hope this helps you all in developing your characters! 

Happy writing!

- jess

me being (very) brutally honest with the signs

Aries- You’re such a goddamn hothead all the goddamn time. Not everyone likes to be constantly doing something every second of every day. You get angry with people for the smallest and most trivial reasons but god forbid someone take a dig at you. You’re such a hypocrite and it’s annoying as fuck. You act like an edgy teenager that’s constantly throwing a tantrum. You also boss people around and expect everyone to just follow your lead and if they don’t, you get pissed at them for having a mind of their own. You seriously need to take a look at your life and stop seeing everything as a fucking challenge that’s rigged against you. My god, I get tired just being in your presence. 

Taurus- You’re a lazy fuck and way too materialistic and possessive. You literally have no desire to do anything because you love to sit on your ass. You take “treat yourself” to a whole new level and not in a healthy way whatsoever. It seems like every chance you get you cause arguments and then you contradict whatever the other person is saying just because you can’t look at anything from a different point of view. Even if you get to the point where you realize you’re in the wrong and the other person is right, you’ll just continue to argue for the sake of arguing and god forbid your ego take even the slightest blow. It’s irritating as shit like you really think you know best when in reality you’re just a stubborn bitch. What a bore.

Gemini- Look, I know you guys get a lot of flak. But take this into consideration…… it’s because most if not all of it is FUCKING TRUE. You have so many different personalities I don’t know which one is even real. You gossip 24/7 and flip-flop between who you talk to and who you talk about. You’re completely unreliable and unpredictable and also clingy as fuck. Seriously, I feel like I can’t get away from you. I just want to go to the bathroom, I don’t need to hear the story right now about how Sarah said that Dylan said that Kimberly found a sock in the dryer that wasn’t hers. Literally no one cares. Another thing that you do is once you get tired of someone, you just throw them away like garbage. (Also Trump is a gemini, and I know you guys can’t control that but like come on. Of course he’s a gemini.)

Cancer- You really need to stop being so whiny or I’m actually going to lose it. Everyone has problems so stop acting like such a victim all the goddamn time. You’re so moody all the time and you act like a small child that needs to have their diaper changed. You also cling onto people as soon as you meet them and cry if someone doesn’t answer your text within 5 fucking minutes. Don’t you have your own life to live? Oh wait, I forgot you spend every second in a dark room and refuse to come outside unless it’s to answer the door because you ordered shitty takeout. You consider changing your clothes adventurous and honestly it’s so boring. Introverted doesn’t even describe you, you’re more like a complete hermit (CRAB. HA!)

Leo- Hey leo, wow, are you actually reading this? I’m kind of shocked because I never thought you’d ever stop looking at yourself in the mirror. Seriously, you’re probably the most vain sign out of all of us. So much so that if someone criticizes you in even the smallest way, you get so offended and act like you’ve been shot in the chest. You think so highly of yourself, and while it’s great to have confidence, you take it to the next level, which is extreme arrogance. You love to have the conversation focused around you. You’re the type of friend that if someone is telling you about their problem or just their day in general, you’ll interrupt them and start talking about yourself and it’s DAMN ANNOYING. How do you still have friends?

Virgo- I’m gonna tell you right now, you’re not as perfect as you think you are. You’re so quick to critique other people that you write them off as not good enough before even getting to know them. You’re the type of person that would tell their friend that they were breathing too loudly. For fucks sake, you’re such an over analyzing pedant it makes me want to slap you in the face with my fucking asymmetrical hand. Your pessimism is damn near blinding, I probably wouldn’t want to hang around you for more than 10 minutes or you’d make me feel self conscious about how I fucking walk or some shit. You can’t take or make a joke. You’re skeptical about everything and you’re completely inflexible. You like to think of yourself as an intellectual but really you’re stuck up, narrow minded and someone I constantly find myself rolling my eyes at.

Libra- You are manipulative as shit. You’ll tell someone they look good without even looking up from your phone. You lie all the time and don’t really give a fuck if you hurt other people’s feelings because you really only look out for yourself. You’re also a huge fucking coward. When your friends need you to have their back and actually be there for them, you run and hide and say, “Oh sorry I just didn’t want to get involved!”. What a lame fucking excuse for ditching your friend in their time of need. You’re also extremely indecisive to the point where it’ll take you 3 hours just to choose where you want to go eat. It’s tiring as fuck. Just MAKE A CHOICE FOR ONCE IN YOUR LIFE. Have your own fucking opinion. You’re like a goddamn sheep.

Scorpio- Why the FUCK are you so aggressive for no fucking reason? You manipulate people just for the fun of it. You get jealous so easily and usually you don’t even have a reason to be jealous. You just are. It’s pathetic. You like to think that you’re so cool and mysterious but in reality people just see you as a moody and brooding asshole that no one really wants to bother getting to know. I mean, why would they? What’s the point? Every time someone even tries to get close to you, you completely brush them off and act like you don’t care about them because keeping your “mystifying” aura is soo important to you. And if you do let someone in, you treat them like they’re your possession and it’s creepy as hell. You obsess over them and you want to control them. God forbid they hang out with someone that isn’t you and then you resent them for no goddamn reason other than having a life of their own. Do me a favor scorpio and don’t talk to me.

Sagittarius- Honestly if a sag is reading this, you’re just straight up getting a taste of your own medicine. You’re tactless as shit and it makes me not want to be around you, ever. You’re inconsiderate of others and impatient with everyone. If someone isn’t moving up to your standards you will become agitated and aggressive and then you take it out on the person. You constantly need to be doing something else because your attention span lasts about 2 fucking seconds. You act like an 8 year old. You’re also really superficial. You don’t bother getting to know the deeper layers of a person because, like I said, you’re impatient and also just plain lazy. You take people for granted and are careless when handling the feelings of people closest to you. You’re also a really self-obsessed know-it-all. Go climb a fucking tree, sag.

Capricorn- Four words. Lighten. The fuck. Up. You are by far the most power-hungry of all the signs. You take everything so completely seriously that I don’t even know if you understand what “fun” even is. You always have to have two feet on the ground at all times and you can never ever be spontaneous and it’s so fucking dull. You’re conservative and disdainful nature can be so overbearing at times that even your friends need to get away from you. That is, if you have friends. You’re a complete pessimist so who knows if anyone can actually tolerate that. You constantly have to be the most successful person in a room, and you make sure you reach this level of success through abusive and controlling behavior towards the people around you. Your selfishness grosses me out.

Aquarius- I asked you what time it was. I didn’t ask you if I was afraid of time passing or the fact that it’s a manmade construct. For fucks sake, just shut the fuck up about this deep shit for once. I don’t want to contemplate how large the universe really is at fuckin 8:30 am on a Monday. You’re rebellious even when it doesn’t matter and honestly all it does is piss people off. You’re constantly trying to deviate from the norm that you make the same fucking mistakes that other people already made, but you don’t fucking learn from other people’s mistakes because you always have to go your own way. Maybe listen to other people for once? You’re the most detached sign out of all of them and you hurt people by acting aloof all the fucking time but you don’t care because you chalk it up to “this is who I am!!! I need my freedom!!!!”. You need to actually think about how your actions affect people you care about because if you don’t, you’re REALLY gonna end up alone and you won’t be able to do a damn thing about it. 

Pisces- You need to stop feeling sorry for yourself all the time and get it through your head that you’re not always the damn victim. You don’t take responsibility for your actions and you always find a way to blame it on someone else because you’re NEVER in the wrong, are you? Poor little pisces. You’re not as innocent as you want everyone to believe. You’re constantly daydreaming and it becomes really annoying when I’m trying to talk to you and you just completely zone out because you love living in your little imaginary world. You’re the WORST at solving your own problems and conflicts because instead of dealing with them you just avoid it all together and end up leaving the mess for someone else to clean up. You’re really nosy- you love to get in other people’s business. But you don’t go to the person directly, you have to be sneaky about it and gather rumors from other people. You’re also very over-sensitive. Out of all the signs, you’re by far the most likely to respond to this post saying how this isn’t true and that I’m just a “big fat meany!!!” and then add a bunch of angry/crying emojis.


(disclaimer: Don’t worry, I don’t really hate your sign (unless you’re a  * * * * * * … lmao). This was just for fun and I know it’s harsh. Don’t take it too personally. You’re an individual and ultimately you determine who you really are. Except for you, * * * * * * . Fuck you.)

Alec + self-harm/self-destructive tendencies

Bruce: “Dick, have you got the new armor I left for you?”

Dick: “Yes, Bruce, I’ve got it" 

Bruce: "Are you wearing it? I ordered it especially for you. I’ve made it extra flexible so you can do your thing”

Dick: *sigh* “Thanks, Bruce. It’s amazing” (whisper to Barbara): “It’s hideous! I can’t wear that!" 

Barbara: (making a serious face while trying not to laugh) "Just make your damn father happy, for Christ Sakes”

The Moon Signs and The Mother

The sign your moon is in is said to distinguish the relationship you have with your mother. You can experience both positive and negative traits of the relationship. Not everyone will experience the negative traits, so if you don’t, just look to the positives.

Aries: Your mother taught you to be courageous and to do anything you set your mind to. You saw your mother as strong and brave. You could have competed for your mother’s attention, she could have been too aggressive, pushy, and impulsive to you, making your self-esteem suffer.

Taurus: You find comfort in your mother who made you feel safe, secure, and loved. You learned from her to be steady, patient, and confident in yourself. But your mother could have neglected you in some way that made you feel vulnerable and unsafe. 

Gemini: Your mother praised your intellect and your self-expression. Your mother nurtured you by stimulating your mind, having frequent discussions with you and allowing your mental energy to thrive. But, your mother could be distant emotionally, could rarely be home and always busy, could have raised you up in an unstable, unpredictable environment, or mother could be moody, nervous, and irritable.

Cancer: Your mother has always been nurturing, loving, and supportive of you in every way possible. She offers you guidance and understanding. But, your mother can be overbearing, especially if you move away or start a family of your own, etc. She can also be extremely emotional, moody, and over protective.

Leo: Your mother feels great pride in your beauty, accomplishments, and your dreams. She nurtures your need for attention and supports your talents and self-expression and offers generosity and a loving heart. But, your mother could force you to live out her own dreams, making you do things you don’t want to just for her sake. 

Virgo: Your mother takes great care of you and is very helpful when it comes to any problems you may have, especially when it comes to work and education. She has high expectations of you and encourages you to do your best. But, she could be so much of a perfectionist that if you do not meet her standards, she can become obsessive and overbearing. She may often resort to criticizing you and nagging at you in such a way that it makes you feel like a failure or like you are doing something wrong.

Libra: Your mother is loving and kind, always making sure you have a balanced and peaceful life. She may have taught you to be well-mannered and fair. She pampers you and offers you emotional support. But, she could be so afraid of conflict and judgment from others, that she can be easily walked over by others or avoid confrontations and this can leave you feeling vulnerable if you or her are being hurt or threatened by others. She often overlooks remarks made by others about her and this can influence you to be pushed around just like she is.

Scorpio: From your mother, you gained emotional strength, intensity, and a mysterious persona. But your mother could have neglected or abandoned you in some way which left you feeling unwanted. Her influence on you makes you feel very paranoid of others and even yourself, making you have to be in control of your environment to feel secure. If your mother was in your life or reenters your life, you can experience manipulation from her.

Sagittarius: You have a fun-loving mother who taught you to believe in yourself and to always look on the bright side of life no matter what. You may have experienced traveling and frequent trips to stimulating places that allowed you to feel independent and free. But, your mother could be detached on an emotional level and may be quite distant. She is searching for answers she will never find.

Capricorn: Your mother is serious, conservative, and hard-working. Your mother taught you to become responsible for yourself and taught you the importance of maturity and self-sufficiency. But your mother could have restricted your time to be a child, putting overbearing worries and responsibilities on you at a young age. Your mother may have suffered from events that hindered her and made her depressed and irritable. You never truly had a childhood. 

Aquarius: Your mother taught you the importance of being original, intelligent, and independent. She respected and supported your thinking and your intellect and was a friend to all of your friends and to the community. But, she could not connect with you on an emotional level most of the time and may have been considered as weird or unusual. She could have also been rebellious in a way that affected you negatively.

Pisces: Your mother is sensitive to you and your feelings, seemingly always feeling exactly as you are. She offers you compassion, care, and nurtured your brilliant imagination and creativity. But she may depend on you in an unhealthy way, have a mental illness, or may have addictive habits she must overcome.

Okay, so this has been sitting in my inbox for a while, making me twitch. Because I wasn’t sure if I should engage. Not my name, not my business. And then I thought, nah, nope, I am too frustrated by this to not respond.

Because what the fuck, anon?

You send me this in response to my saying that TT is Jonathan Taylor Thomas. Did you think that I was being genuine? Did you want to set me straight? Did you sit back and say, “This cannot go on. Laura thinks she’s been role-playing with Jonathan Taylor Thomas. I must prove her wrong.” Why the “Easy”? Know what’s easy? RESPECTING BOUNDARIES. Why the “👌”? Know what’s  “👌”? NOT INVADING SOMEONE’S PRIVACY.

What if I had genuinely not known TT’s name? Did you think I wanted to learn TT’s name from you, specifically? As opposed to from TT? 

YOU THOUGHT WRONG.

If a person has set a boundary for how much information they’d like people to have on their life, then you should respect that. Ignoring those wishes is not cool. And then, sharing that information with a person who is sitting over here, minding her damn business, happily NOT overstepping boundaries? That is rude and creepy.

RUDE.

AND.

CREEPY.

Don’t do that, anon. Don’t drag me into your nonsense. Don’t do it. Don’t be that person. Don’t be a dick. 

And you spelled it wrong. Fucking hell.

Penelope grabs a plate of butter for me, and I smile. I’d eat butter with a spoon if it were acceptable. (I did it anyway, my first year, whenever I was the first one down to breakfast.)
