apparently rough-sketching scenes from disney aus is my ~thing now, so here’s a snapshot of cinderella, based on the 2015 movie. maybe this will become a series, who knows!
(with proper capitalization for reading ease bc this got wayyy longer than i meant for it to, whoops)
The first time Isak meets the prince, he doesn’t know he’s meeting the prince.
This is probably for the better, seeing as he doesn’t so much meet the prince as nearly run the prince down with his horse. Which is mostly Isak’s fault, since he isn’t watching where he is riding as well as he should be, but there are—reasons, if he were pressed to give them. The morning had been crueler than usual and the ride to the market had been an all-too-appealing promise of escape, even just temporarily. And so Isak had left the breakfast dishes still dripping dry and bolted as fast as he was able, gratefully giving his thoughts and tears to the wind and trusting the horse to guide them both clear.
Maybe not the safest plan, but it has worked fairly well, up until he almost runs into another rider. It happens so quickly—a startled shout, the high cry of another horse, a blur of color suddenly veering to his left—that Isak has little time to do anything but shout “Sorry!” over his shoulder and hope the wind carries it back. He thinks that will be it, until he registers a voice calling behind him, and then a second rhythm of hoofbeats pounding into the forest floor and catching him up.
everyone says that lance needs to be more appreciated. but you know who really needs it? coran
you’re right!!! coran has virtually no content?? like there was some art and a few gifs when s2 came out but other than that…. seriously he’s so good im so obsessed with him.
reasons why coran needs to be appreciated more
- has literally lost all his people, probably his family, but still stays strong while allura mourns?? like, he must’ve lost everything too, but he still let her cry on his shoulder he’s too pure
- appreciates lance?? makes sure that this weird emotional human kid is alright, not just because he’s a paladin but because coran senses that something isn’t right, and he really cares
- is a horrible cook but enthusiastic about it anyways.. like how adorable
- is willing to go to any lengths to keep allura and his paladins safe? like, goes to the ends of the universe, does all this bullshit, just so he can help!!!!!! he’s so Fucking amazing i can’t deal!!!!
- coran coran the gorgeous man
to summarize,,, i would die for coran…. please make more coran content
I ventured out into the world today to buy groceries and attend a work meeting. That may seem like a small accomplishment but because I have to keep my phallus elevated as much as possible it’s made going outside (and walking in general) difficult. For the most part I’ve been pretty confined to wherever I’m staying and so leaving the house, even for a short trip, is a big step recovery-wise and a welcome change.
Attending the work meeting also reminded me how much I care about and value the people I work with. From the time I pulled up to the time I left I had coworkers right by my side helping me walk, asking if needed anything, asking if had enough food at home, checking in about if I needed more time off, welcoming me back, saying they really missed having me there, etc. They don’t know what surgeries I’ve had, just that I’m young and have had a lot of them, and they never ask either. They didn’t even know I was coming to this meeting. They just care about my wellbeing and if there’s anything that can be done to help the recovery process. One of them even started making a scar cream for my arm after we had a discussion about how it was healing a few months post-op.
So I've known for a few years I should see someone about possibly having ADHD, and I would do it now but I don't believe insurance covers it and I don't want to go alone. So I would have to talk to my parents. My dad doesn't believe it's real while my mom is a psychologist and I've hinted at problems I'm having but the response I get is always try harder then, and when I mention I do all the time, she just says she hasn't seen me try. What I should say to her since I need her support?
It might take more than hints to convince your mom that you’re really having a hard time. Try writing down specific situations where things are difficult or go wrong, and emphazise why these things cause you problems. When she tells you to try harder, have examples ready of how you have tried. If it didn’t work, tell her that too.
If she still doesn’t want to take you seriously, it could be helpful to ask her what she thinks you should do in these situations. The advice she has might not be helpful (or it might be very helpful) but this way you can show her that you are trying. Hopefully once she sees that she’ll be more open to considering ADHD.
Otherwise I’d suggest checking if your insurance really won’t cover it. Hopefully your parents will come around, but if nothing else you might have to do it without them. You deserve help for the things you struggle with, whether or not your parents are willing to provide it.
was it me or was the shrink telling Carrie she's too invested in Quinn when he was saying she needed to give Frannie more time?
Not so much that she’s too invested in Quinn as sometimes Franny needs to come first and she needs to know that she comes first.
Like he said, every parent has to balance their personal needs with the needs of their child. In some cases, the needs of the child have to come before the parent’s needs (which is kind of stating the obvious, but OK). In this case, Carrie’s need was to bring Quinn home because she didn’t want to lose him, Franny’s need was to feel/be safe in her own home.
