Can you do a comfort ask? Some headcanons of how Bakugou, Fatgum, Tamaki, & Todoroki help their crush (&/ or s/o)with her anxiety?? My anxiety has been through the roof lately with me having to do job interviews for the 1st time, ahh

First of all, I’m sorry your anxiety is getting to you, I’ve been there with regards to the job interviews things. I also have generalized and social anxiety, on top of many other issues, so I understand. But, congrats on going out and doing the thing! It’s hard to do, so I’m proud of you. Second, I do accept comfort asks and tend to prioritize them above other things, so don’t ever hesitate to ask if you need something <3

Katsuki Bakugou

+ Baku Snuggles™; if they’re dating, he’s going to trap her in his arms and cuddle her until she feels better. If she’s lucky and he’s feeling in a particularly giving mood, massages and kissing can and will happen

+ if he can’t make her feel better, he’ll make her forget about it for a little bit

+ cooks food for her if he can, because he’s a good cook and you gotta eat something, you’ll feel better

+ his own coping mechanism is to just turn everything into anger, but he knows that’s not productive doesn’t stop him from doing it though so he tries to give actual advice, like breathing exercises, distracting them with cute animal videos, coming up with ways to reframe her thinking.

+ you’ve got this, whatever it is, and you’re gonna kick your anxiety’s ass. Fuck that shit, you’re incredible

+ if she asks him to, he’ll accompany her to whatever place/thing it is causing her anxiety; for example, job interviews, he’ll go with her and wait outside while she does the thing


+ hugs and snacks for days

+ makes lots of jokes to try and distract her from whatever it is that’s giving her anxiety

+ will take her out to do things to distract her

+ will talk the issues out with her and offer advice if he can

+ like Bakugou, will go with her to whatever it is she needs to do if it will make her feel better; is a big cheerleader for his crush/partner

+ if she does something despite her anxiety, he will buy her little presents to reward her, because who doesn’t like gifts, and being recognized for doing things that are hard?

Tamaki Amajiki

+ he has lots of his own anxiety issues, and while he has a hard time coping with his issues, he can very easily push them aside to comfort the person he adores

+ while normally very shy about physical contact, he’ll give her a hug if that’s what she wants; if they’re dating, forehead kisses abound

+ it’s okay, we’ve both lived this long, right? It’ll be fine, it’s just a bad day, this isn’t the end of the world… I think… Probably, yeah.

+ shows her cute videos of cats, tries to get her mind off of whatever is bothering her

Shouto Todoroki

+ this boy is going to the ends of the earth and back for the person he adores; will move mountains if it makes her feel better

+ talks to her about what it is that’s bothering her, gives advice as he can, tells her that her feelings are completely valid and that sometimes things can be really scary. He also knows that sometimes there just isn’t anything one can do to completely get over their anxiety

+ makes little affectionate gestures, like brushing her hair behind her ear, gently bumps into her while walking and then giving her a soft smile when she looks back at him, intertwines their fingers when they hold hands

+ will accompany her anywhere she goes that she asks him to follow

+ checks in often to see if she’s feeling better, or if she needs anything

+ expert at cuddling, much less aggressive of a snuggler than Bakugou though

+ he knows massages that are used to help reduce anxiety, and he will give them to her if nothing else is working

Review: John Green’s Turtles All The Way Down. 🐢

I’m sure many people are going to sit here and say how they identify with this book, that they can relate to Aza and her anxiety, and her spiraling thoughts.

Well I’m going to contribute to that group. I suffer from severe anxiety. My anxiety has crippled my life in many ways. So on many different levels, I understand Aza’s plight and her self destructing mind.

Synopsis: Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis.

Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.

My thoughts: I laughed, I cried, I yelled, I even gagged. This book was amazingly beautifully written and extremely powerful. I especially loved the focus on the relationships Aza has with her mom and Daisy and how he anxiety creates so many different dynamics and how it can be so destructive.

Daisy really irked me but I also respected the fact that she didn’t really have any way to comprehend the crippling hell of anxiety. And that’s an important aspect I’m glad that was focused on. We don’t intend to make other suffer around us. It’s not that we are unaware of their suffering of how stressful we make it but it’s also not something else can really control.

Another big focus in this book is existentialism. Not teenage angst but genuine existentialism that contributes to Aza’s anxiety.

I could go on and on but I won’t. Just go read this book. It’s beautiful. And powerful. And mesmeric.

My Anxiety...

My anxiety has gotten to the point where I will be seeking professional help. I’m terrified yet excited.
It’s a weird feeling. I want to get better mentally. I know that I may never get ride of anxiety but I can learn how to deal with it. I worry about worrying. My irrational fears and thoughts consume my mind 95% of the day.
I haven’t seen a doctor since I was a teenager, so I’m a bit worried.
Everything will be okay though. I know it will.

Hey if people who don’t like the dub could stop reblogging my post with tags and comments about how much they hate the dub as well as adding things like “Shut the fuck up the dub sucks I hate it”, that would be much appreciated.

Cause here’s the thing about dubs, they’re never gonna be perfect and some are worse than others. But the dub of Yuri on Ice, whether you feel it’s well done or not, is important. As I stated in a previous post, most series that feature LGBT characters or non-hetero relationships aren’t handled with the same amount of effort and respect as other series. A prime example would be No.6. The voice acting was mediocre and the dub as a whole felt lazy. It’s obvious that it was rushed out and the the team and actors weren’t totally invested. Compare that to the obvious amount of time and work they put in to Yuri on Ice. Yes the voices aren’t perfect but when you watch a sub first, I think it’s almost impossible to think dubbed voices are perfect.

In America (where the dub is recorded) we don’t have the same censorship as Japan when it comes to gay relationships. They have been very blunt and straightforward in terms of Victor and Yuri’s relationship in the dub and have changed several lines to more literal translations because they don’t have to worry about censorship. It’s obvious too that the actors are giving this series their all and are invested in it, which is so rare to see and hear in a series featuring LGBT characters.

Supporting this dub also helps show the anime distribution and licensing companies that we want to see the same care and effort in shows featuring gay couples as we see in shows featuring hetero couples. There isn’t enough quality representation in the anime industry and supporting both dubs and subs helps show we want more!

Also, dubs are important as a whole because they make anime accessible to people who struggle with reading, or who are visually impaired, or have anxiety. My friend has high anxiety and she can only watch dubs because trying to read the subs and watch the show at the same time used to overwhelm her. My brother has dyslexia and he prefers dubs because he doesn’t have to worry about trying to keep up with the quick changing subs.

So yeah please stop adding that you hate the dub because it’s important. It’s not the best, but it is important

when you just try to do the right thing but it’s been non stop complaints and everyone shitting on you my anxiety has anxiety right now 🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃
