I sometimes love Harvest moon because, just imagine, a man you’ve been courting for the past weeks shows up at your door at 6 AM and gives you a single egg. He then proceeds to explain what an egg is. He smiles and sheepishly rubs his hand across his neck and then immediately leaves.
I accidentally adopted the most adorable little girl in the world.
It’s so hard to imagine anyone not wanting her, let alone mistreating her. She was so fearful and defensive when we first brought her home, it was heartbreaking. She’s come such a long way since then. Tanooki can’t get enough ear scritches and pets and belly rubs, she runs after us everywhere we go, and loves lap cuddles. She chases after the boys pretty much every day and asserts herself as the boss, and it’s incredible to see her display such confidence.
She and Grendel are basically inseparable at this point, and Odin has finally decided that she might be kinda okay. She’s pretty hard not to love. :)
The downside? She’s almost dangerously clever (just like, seriously good at figuring things out), she wants to eat all of my yogurt, and she makes it nearly impossible to get anything done, what with her constant need for tummy rubs. But y'know, I think we’ll deal with it.
Small Percy concentrating in the little things like Annabeth new earrings and Annabeth being taller than him and how long her hair is and how it fell down her shoulders.. And how his hands were sweaty while dancing with her.
To mlm who get their periods:
You are still a valid man
You are strong for dealing with this
You’re no less of a man or less masculine than the guys who don’t deal with this
Your love for men is valid and beautiful
But she wondered why beautiful things had to be wrapped up with evil history. Or was it the other way around?
Maybe the evil history made it necessary to build beautiful things, to mask the darker aspects.
