little compliments

i’m such a sucker for shance where they just turn into such saps the second they’re alone!! guards down and duty on the backburner for once, for just a little while, all soft touches and playful little compliments and sweet little kisses!! just wrapped up in each other and letting out all of the affection that they could only show in loving smiles and knowing glances during the day!! i’m such a piece of cheese over these two!!

compliment people. not in the “fake” way, but in the sense that if you notice how great their hair looks, or how hard they have been working in the past few days, or how cute and inspiring their blog is, tell them. they’ll appreciate it, and maybe blush a little or smile, eyes lightening up, and maybe that little compliment or ask will make their day.

when i’m in little space …

🌸 engage with me and give me your attention.

🌸 ask me what im doing & be genuinely curious with a blatant desire to be involved.

🌸 have me count things around me like how many pictures i’ve colored so far or tell you the colors of the crayons i have sprawled out.

🌸 talk in a caring & warm voice that holds amusement, interest, and love.

🌸 treat me like you’d treat any child. be sweet with me, be gentle with me.

🌸 tell me you love me. remind me you’re my cg & that you’re here to care for me.

🌸 call me endearing names. ones you always call me when im little, or ones you don’t use as often. little one/girl/boy, princess/prince babygirl/boy, angel, honey, sweetness, love.

🌸 be close to me. be near me. ask if you can join me in whatever im doing, be it coloring, singing, dancing, having a tea party with stuffies, playing with toys, watching tv, playing a game, doing a puzzle. show me you want to interact with me and support me while i am in this headspace.

🌸 hold my hand because you want me to stay where you can see me, buckle me into the car to keep me safe because im precious, order for me because im too little to do it, offer to take me out places where you know i love to go or take me as a surprise.

🌸 pet my hair. give me kisses on the cheek, nose, forehead. smile at me. tell me im good, that you’re proud of me, that im allowed to be soft and vulnerable, that it’s okay to be little.

🌸 tell me how cute i am when im little. compliment my outfit or my hair or my makeup or literally anything.

🌸 baby talk, talk in third person, use the same tone you’d use with a small child.

🌸 ask me to go fetch my favorite paci, or my sippy cup so you can fill it with juice, or a stuffed animal you know im fond of. know all their names for good measure.

🌸 praise me, love me, just show me you care.

I always thought it was extremely powerful that ATLA decided to portray a younger female (Azula) abusing an older boy (Zuko) and not have it be played for laughs. It’s portrayed to be just as horrific as it would be if it were the other way around. And I loved how Zuko was never mocked for being frightened of and traumatized by his little sister. Because boys—just like girls—can be victims, and girls—just like boys—can be abusers, and I love how this show decided to show that

There is so much that is wonderful and almost unheard of in Azula’s storyline. She is as you say a younger girl abusing her older brother. We don’t see a lot of acknowledged sibling abuse, much less sibling abuse of an older brother by a younger sister. We also almost never see acknowledged abuse within a friend group. When we see abuse in fiction, it tends to look pretty much the same, a husband abusing a wife, a parent abusing their child. When we see do see other kinds of abuse, it’s almost never acknowleged as abuse, or as really harmful by the narrative. Azula is a complete departure from this. She, a fourteen year old girl, is always acknowledged by the narrative as a credible abuser, who is capable of real harm, and Zuko, Mai, and Ty Lee are never shown as weak or somehow at fault for being her victims. They are allowed to be scared of her, to be traumatized and hurt by her, and when they do get away from her, this is shown as an act that takes real strength and bravery.

Fiction is a mirror of real life and when you never see your own experiences reflected in that mirror, it’s difficult to name them and see them for what they are. I remember when I was in high school, I told one of my teachers that my relationship with my abuser was like an abusive marriage. At the time, she was still stalking me, and I had only just moved to a new state and my nerves were raw, and the fear I had lived with for four years was refusing to go away. But though I could say that my experience was like being in an abusive marriage even then, it took me several more years to be able to name what had happened to me as actual abuse, not just like abuse. And it took me even longer to stop feeling like a fake victim because my abuser was younger than I was and another girl. If I had seen Avatar: the Last Airbender earlier, that process might have been much easier.

Nursemaid

(Jimin’s crush comes over to his house to help him out after he suffers an injury that leaves him with limited use of both hands.)

Warnings: 6000+ words of smut, Jimin POV, I’ll let you guess what kind of smut takes place


“I can’t believe you managed to injure both of your hands on the same day.” Hoseok’s girlfriend, Sophie, stifled a laugh while she said it. “I can’t tell if you are dumb or just unlucky.”

 Jimin sighed.  He had been stupid and drunk when he and Jungkook went out into the street to play with fireworks.  One went off too close to his hand, burning his right palm requiring a trip to the emergency room where his injury was cleaned and bandaged.  The doctor gave him a lecture about drunk people and explosives and how fortunate he was not to have blasted off his fingers.            

While exiting the hospital, Jimin immediately tripped over the curb and landed with his full weight onto his left hand resulting in a small fracture and return trip to the emergency room to get a splint to immobilize his other hand.   Now, every time Jimin saw someone, he had to suffer the embarrassment of explaining what happened. People had a hard time not laughing when they heard how he managed to get hurt twice in one day.

 “Does it hurt much?” you asked him.

“Not really. As long as I don’t bump into anything or use my fingers too much, it’s okay.” At least you seemed to be genuinely concerned about his well-being. That’s one of the reasons Jimin liked you, you always seemed caring and sincere.  The other main reason he liked you was because he thought you were incredibly hot.  There were plenty of nights Jimin stayed up fantasizing about what it would feel like to be with you.  He wanted to ask you out, but had been waiting until there was some indication that you were even the slightest bit interested in him.  He was starting to think that maybe he had a chance with you, but he felt neutered with his injuries, unable to do things like casually touch you and see how you would respond to his advances.  Jimin resolved to make a move as soon as he had full use of his hands again.

Cos I said I would.

anonymous asked:

Why does everyone like Zuko so much, he has a good story but, like so do all the other characters, why him?

I think the biggest reason Zuko is so popular is that it’s easy to identify with him. This isn’t a mark of the quality of his story compared to that of the other characters in the shoe’s stories, so much as his particular form of suffering is one we as a society are more primed to relate to. Fewer people in the US are going to understand the feeling of being one of the last survivors of a genocide like Aang, or his sense of utter disconnectedness, or Katara and Sokka’s experiences of the slow steady “soft” genocide of the Southern Water Tribes. These things happen in the real world, but fewer people in the audience will have gone through them compared with being abused by an unpleasable parent. This is also why Toph is a popular character. Her story arc also involves a family drama that feels familiar to many of us.

Another reason that Zuko is so popular and so easily identified with is that Zuko reacts in a normalized way to his trauma. Even if such reactions aren’t actually accepted in real people, Zuko’s reactions to trauma are part of a fictional norm. Viewers typically react with more sympathy to characters who respond to trauma with anger and self loathing rather than with fear and feelings of helplessness or despair, with action rather than inaction, in emotional outbursts rather than emotional repression. This reaction to trauma is also highly coded as masculine in fiction, and more accepted in male characters. This difference in the way we are used to seeing trauma portrayed, and this gendering of how we view traumatized characters helps explain why Aang’s trauma often goes unrecognized, and why Mai and Ty Lee’s emotional repression often go completely unnoticed.

Zuko is also a redemptive character, and for many of us who have suffered and hurt others in our pain, characters like Zuko, who is so obviously suffering and hurting himself and others in his pain, offer hope of change and moving on, and coming to terms with things we have done that we are not proud of.

Lastly, Zuko’s pain, his raw unadulterated suffering, is so apparent, so constantly in view throughout much of the show. He is like an open wound in character form, and for many of us, that is compelling all on its own.

8. “I didn’t mean it like that. I was trying to… Tease you. That’s what you do, right? When you have… Feelings?”

~Some of these ended up sounding a little like Daily Odd Compliments. Oh Well. I hope they help!~

anonymous asked:

Can we talk about how Mai being abused made her how she is? Calling an abuse victim abusive for acting a certain way because of their abuse is victim blaming. Mai isn't a bad person her parents are.

Thank you for sending me this ask, anon, because it’s something I want to talk about.

There are abusers who were themselves abused, and who abuse out of a misguided attempt to cope with their own abuse.  Such abusers absolutely exist, and Avatar: the Last Airbender has a few of these, most prominently Azula.  However, this is not Mai, and I have already written a lot about how Mai’s behavior is not abusive.

But here’s the thing, Zuko, during his time in the Fire Nation before leaving to teach Aang, is not happy, and for that matter, Mai isn’t happy either.  This is only to be expected.  Not only are Mai and Zuko both trying to deal with the abuse their parents heaped, and continue to heap on them, but they are both in a current abusive relationship at the time, with Azula.  Both of them are under tremendous stress from this past and continuing abuse, and neither was magically able to be happy in spite of currently being abused because they had someone who loved them.

This is held up by anti-Maiko shippers as proof that Mai is wrong for Zuko, and even abusive.  Obviously she’s the wrong girl, because if she was the right girl, Zuko would be happy and cured of all his woes, even though all of the troubles he had before are still going on, and out of Mai’s control.  This is both rank sexism, and a wild misunderstanding of what love is like.

In fact, abusers like Azula are corrosive to all the other relationships their victims have, especially the relationships between their victims.  It’s incredibly difficult to sustain a relationship in the face of an Azula.  This is why Mai and Ty Lee’s friendship, and also Mai and Zuko’s romance are so remarkable.

And both Mai and Zuko act in tremendously unhealthy ways throughout their time together before Zuko leaves to teach Aang.  This behavior isn’t abuse, but there are lots of unhealthy behaviors that aren’t abuse.  Both of them are still being abused.  They don’t have the safety to step back and say “is this coping mechanism doing me good?  Is it good for the people around me?  Does it work?”  They are both still living in that state of fear and crisis that abuse brings.  Holding Mai responsible for this is the very height of victim blaming.

And anyone in medbay at that time recording and livestreaming it through the Enterprise. The lullaby echoing through the mess hall and engineering and the rec room. It’s on screen in the bridge.


And then Jim and/or Spock sprinting towards medbay to see it with their own eyes.
