i will never understand guys who get grossed out and cringe and act like someone’s burning a fire underneath their ass whenever anyone mentions periods and menstruation. like if people who have periods can go through it every month with all of the aches and pains that come with it then the LITERAL bare minimum you can do is not cringe when just the word is said out loud
No, your child doesn’t do weird things “for no reason”. They do it for a reason, you just don’t know it yet. You have different brains, different perspectives, so sometimes things that are obvious to them are a mystery to you. But you don’t have to ignore it and blame it on them. You can make an effort, reach out to them and figure out the reason.
Do they scream in public when it looks like everything is okay? Well, there’s probably a reason for that. Maybe the situation is overwhelming to their senses, it’s too loud, to bright, to crowded, and they need some space and time to recover. Maybe they can’t stim because other people keep telling them it looks weird, so they end up exhausted much faster. Maybe you are breaking their routine by being outside at this time. Or maybe you are going through the supermarket “the wrong way”, not how you usually do it. Maybe they forgot their comfort object at home, and just realized that. Maybe they are in pain and can’t communicate that. Maybe they are very hungry and don’t realize that yet because it’s hard for them to recognize their needs and emotions. Maybe it’s a combination of those, or something different altogether.
Either way, they probably don’t do it “for no reason”. You just don’t see the reason. Make an effort to communicate. If they are verbal, ask them. If they can’t speak with their mouth at the moment or ever, use alternative methods of communication. If they can’t explain it, consult other autistic people, including autistic adults who probably have a bunch of ideas as to why your child does that weird thing. Don’t dismiss it, don’t complain about it, don’t blame your child for doing it. Try to see the world from their perspective. Respect their needs and feelings. Learn more about autism from other autistic people.
And life will be much better and easier for both you and your child.
How about seven and mc pranking other members? I <3 your blog and have a nice day or evening or whatever :)
Admin’s Note(?): After watching Fred and George Weasley do pranks in the beloved Harry Potter series recently, I can proudly say I am ready for this.
The RFA hosts parties each and every year, and because you’re the party organiser, you always had to make sure that all of them turned out to be successful — and that the next one had to be better than the last one.
When you needed to do your job, you would spend the whole day planning on your laptop and dealing with the guests on your phone, doing all that you could in order to make everything run smoothly.
Thankfully Seven was there to remind you to take breaks, otherwise by the time the party was held you would have become a zombie that lived off of nothing but Honey Buddha Chips and PH D. Pepper.
But as you read through the schedule and plans for the party for what seemed to be the fifteenth time, you couldn’t help but feel that there was something missing; making you sigh and lean against your boyfriend for support, who had been on his phone pranking talking to Yoosung (he told him that all of LOLOL’s servers were going to be shut down in a week’s time - permanently.)
“There’s something missing… I know it… but… I can’t put my finger on it…”
You mumbled, before Seven looked over your shoulder and at your laptop.
“Hm… well… you have everything but one thing.”
He said, making you raise an eyebrow in response.
“There’s no entertainment, you don’t have anything organised to entertain the guests aside from the food, drinks, music and the part where they dance.”
You checked everything again, only to find that what he said was actually true.
“Oh… I see…. that’s it!
Thank you Luciel!”
You kissed Seven on the lips before going back to working, as the feeling of determination began to bubble again.
A moment later…
What seemed to be four hours of calling and emailing services that could help entertain the guests, you found out that none of them were available on the date the party held on — which meant you were back to where you started.
“I can never do parties that were better than hers…”
You muttered to yourself, running your hands through your hair as another sigh escaped your lips.
“…I wish I could have some help…”
And at that moment, you saw your ‘hero’ come to the rescue as Seven wrapped his arms around your waist and kiss your temple.
“Seven Zero Seven has an idea for the lovely ____~.”
He whispered, making a smile appear on your face.
“Well… I guess it wouldn’t hurt to do one small trick… but as long as the guests are entertained by it, okay Luciel?”
With that being said, the two of you spent the rest of that day organising what would later go down in the history of the RFA.
A couple of moments later…
Today was the day the party was being held, and (from what everyone has said) it was better than all the past parties combined; as all the RFA Members thanked you for your hard work whilst you walked around the venue.
But when Seven gave you the signal, you knew that there was going to be one more thing that would be done before the party ended — as the lights went out for a few seconds.
“What’s going on? ____, is this part of the party?”
You heard Jaehee whisper to you, but her question was answered when a spotlight shone on a masked magician, who did a curtsy to the guests before speaking through a microphone.
“Ladies and gentlemen… thank you for coming to this magnificent party organised by the one and only, _____ _____.”
A spotlight shined on you as everyone clapped, before
“But before the party ends… I would love to do a couple of magic tricks…”
With your eyes finally adjusting to the darkness, you could see that everyone was intrigued by what was going on - including the RFA.
That was until the magician continued however…
“Which will feature a special guest who will be known as ‘Elly’~.”
And when the magician (who everyone knew was Seven) pulled Elizabeth the 3rd out of the hat he was wearing, everyone watched as Jumin chased him; the magic show being forgotten as a game of cat and mouse ensued.
The guests all thought it was entertaining, thinking that Seven was quite the actor and charmer as he managed to disappear and reappear through the crowd, avoid security and still hold Elizabeth the 3rd (who was having the worst time of her life).
But the moment the party ended… well…
Long story short, you were never allowed to pull that sort of ‘trick’ again.
how the fuck can you arrive at the point where you know about all the things louis did, and i’m not speaking about the bears here i’m talking about the “all out” jumper, the rainbow shirts, the triangle tattoo, all his comments, how can you know all that, acknowledge them and still have the fucking audacity to say “if you think he’s closeted, the single best thing you can do for him as a fan is shut the fuck up about it until he starts talking about it” LIKE????
