other peoples parents

The whole “Lucius was abusive with Draco” thing has always been so funny to me. Really, I don’t get how people are able to believe something so silly. 

Seriously, guys, wake the fuck up, if Lucius had been abusive with his son, he wouldn’t have been a part of the series. You know why? Because Narcissa “If you attack my son again I shall ensure that is the last thing you ever do” Malfoy would have killed him ten times in a row.

“Don’t take life so seriously, because it’s alot more fun if you stop worrying about what other people think. Your parents are not as dumb as you think they are - I had to leave mine before I realised that. Turn your music up because you will be deaf when you get old anyway. Dye your hair - look into the mirror - and say ‘Damn you are hot!’ Play in the mud.”

Part one

This wasn’t requested, this was just another random creation inspired by the idea of Harry getting turned on by watching you get ready.

Includes: A tiny bit of fluff(?), a tiny bit of frustrated horny Harry, and smut ;)

I don’t know how many parts this will be and I think this part is bad but this will probably be two parts.

Your narcissistic mother does not define you.
You abusive father does not define you.
Your enabling brothers do not define you.
Your aunt who thinks you are going to hell because you’re gay does not define you.
Your judgmental sister-in-law who won’t let you see your niece and nephew does not define you.

These sentences are specific to me and my “family” members.

What sentences would you write? Who in your family does not not define you? What do they do that doesn’t define you?

Say it loud. Say it proud. :-)

Dear parents of autistic children,

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.

Remember that you don’t have to have anything to offer to be wanted, you’ll find people that just appreciate your presence in their lives because they like you.

The New Lars alternate ending

I really wanted The New Lars to end like this:

  • Steven (in Lars’s body) comes home, barges in, and sees Pearl perched on Steven’s bed, shaking his body, screaming, freaking out bc he’s not responding, etc.
  • Steven (in Lars’s body) runs up to his bed and pushes Pearl out of the way, like “PEARL MOVE I NEED TO GET BACK INTO MY BODY”, starts shaking his body instead
  • Pearl, who doesn’t know that Steven is inside Lars’s mind, instead sees it as some random human teenager busting into her house and assaulting her ailing son, and as a result full on tackles Lars (who is still controlled by Steven) to the ground and starts slapping him
  • All the other people (Buck, Lars’s parents, Sadie, etc.) start flipping shit and screaming, everyone is screaming and crying and freaking out
  • Getting slapped makes Steven’s mind return to his body, so Lars wakes up to everyone screaming and crying and Pearl pinning him to the ground and slapping the shit out of him
  • Lars starts screaming like, WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON, PLEASE STOP HITTING ME
  • Steven comes to break it up and explain the situation and the episode ends the same way from there

The problem with cisgender people playing transgender roles is that it encourages dialogue like “he looks really good as a woman” or “he’s pulling off that dress well” (all quotes I just heard) which, while they might be intended as compliments, continue to perpetuate the idea that a transwoman is nothing more than a man playing dress up. Viewers don’t see a woman but a man pretending to be a woman, and while shows like Transparent may have done some good things for the trans community in raising awareness and starting dialogue, when the rhetoric revolves around “ Jeffrey Tambor is a great actor dressing up like a woman like that” or “Eddie Redmayne, he makes a pretty woman” or whoever is playing a transwoman now or next and getting credit for being “brave enough” to dare dress up as a gender that is “not their own” we’re still removing agency from transwomen as women: not playing a role, not playing dress up, but being their authentic selves as women

And the same can be said for cisgender women playing trans-men, continuing the idea that they’re “just tomboys” and suddenly the narrative gets dismissed as a Shakespeare-esque “woman dresses up as a man to engage with male society”. While stories of women defying the patriarchy are great and needed, it that is not this story, and transmen should not continuously have their narratives erased and turned into the story of “a girl being one of the boys” or the story of a woman proving she can do anything men can do because this means removing transmen from the story as men. Too often, transmen’s identity is erased entirely because it is a cisgender female playing the role and viewer reaction goes straight to women’s beauty standards, interpreting the story as a woman’s right to wear pants or cut their hair short or play boy’s sports (all of which are great and true but not this story!)

Maybe it’s stupid, but I just wanted to say - I grew up with very supporting parents and took it for granted, and today, at the ripe age of 35, I just discovered my dad actually thinks I’m a loser, and idiot and a selfish bitch who’ll never amount to anything and doesn’t know what love is. And even if technically I don’t need him anymore, because I’m not a child, it’s still unsettling and wrong and it hurts - a lot. So I guess - really, all the kudos and all the hugs to anyone out there who had the shitty luck of hearing those things (and worse) when they were much younger - I’m now having a glimpse of what it means to move into a world where your parents don’t have any consideration for you or any trust in your abilities and opinions, and I can’t imagine how hard it must be to push against something like this as a kid - the determination it must take to love yourself and become your own person and follow your dreams despite what your parents think of you. Really, guys - if you grew up with abusive parents, you’re goddamn heroes. So much respect for you.

I finally saw The Lightning Thief Musical yesterday!!! It was so much fun and totally worth it, 10/10 would watch again. It was very accurate to the books, obviously they had to skim a lot to fit everything in 2 hours, but the tone/feel was spot on and there were tons of little references for fans.

Best performances imo were Chris McCarrell and Carrie Compere who both have incredible voices, but the entire cast is great. Everyone (except Chris) had so many costume changes and also doubled as stage crew haha. Sarah Beth Pfeifer as a squirrel and Jonathan Raviv as Chiron made me laugh so hard. Honestly tho, Chris is the perfect Percy, his portrayal was amazing.

I sat in the first row so I got to experience the actors’ spittage up close lmao, also we got showered with golden confetti and covered in toilet paper via leaf blowers, it was awesome. My fave songs were Good Kid (obviously), Strong, and DOA. Tl;dr where is our cast recording???

I think with time, what has been reaffirmed for me is that, I’ll never be able to love a man. It can never be whole, because they themselves are incomplete. They just don’t have what it takes. All I can see is where they lack. Even the smallest things I can not overlook, simply because women don’t lack those. And that I was right to question my capacity to love them as I did many years ago. Back then I framed it from their perspective as my inability to love, but it is they who are unlovable.

I have observed multiple mutuals here under the age of 18 who are not allowed by their parents to cut/dye/bleach their hair or have piercings. Once upon a time I wasn’t allowed either, and I remember I never really understood why.

Whenever I asked “why not”, my mother would always reply “wait until you’re 18.”, which isn’t really an answer so I asked again; why not?
To which she finally replied (after an unnecessary hissyfit), “because you might regret it.”

Now I had my answer but the thing is, I didn’t see any problem with that. But to avoid any more hilariously aggressive confrontations- I waited. I turned 18 and I pierced my eyebrow, cut my hair short and dyed my hair bright red. And then green. And then pink. And then blue then green and turquoise and purple and orange and pink and then blue. I pierced my tongue and lips and belly button and everything was so fun and exciting because I was finally allowed to do what I was denied as a child.

But then my mother started crying, the poor soul didn’t know what to do. She questioned her parenting and blamed me for her depression and so on and so forth and I was still so damn confused about what the problem was! I had no problem getting a job, and when I joined the army I removed the piercings and temporarily dyed my hair a normal brown again like the responsible adult I was. When I went back to work/school I kept putting fun colors in my hair again and put the piercings back. I encountered exactly zero problems in my adulting, but still my mother was upset!

One day she explained to me that I was now too old to be doing this; she was afraid other parents would blame her for bad parenting and she believed that I should know better now that I was an adult.

Now…THIS IS A LITTLE WEIRD TO ME.

Because basically, my mother didn’t want me to dye my hair as a child in fear of me regretting it, and then as an adult I should magically know that i will regret it without having tried it and also I should be aware of the prejudice of other parents (which I never encountered) — which isn’t only extremely backwards logic but it also means in this case she’d rather seem like a good parent to other parents than to be a good parent for her child.

My mother knows better now; she has tattoos and bleached hair and doesn’t care but if her children and friends hadn’t normalized being a little different for her then she never would’ve changed her thinking.

Let kids put fun colors in their hair. Don’t make such a big deal out of such little things.

anonymous asked:

Do you have any fic recommendations that haven't received the recognition you think they should? Or, alternatively, any recommendations for stories you've read more than once? I'm currently caught up on my personal to read list and looking for new stories, especially with the news that shall not be mentioned. AU is preferable!

Hey nonny!

Ahh I feel ya. i’m gonna try and list up some older works, ones that may have been forgotten or unheard of. Most my fic faves have either been lost or deleted and i’m absolutely useless at keeping track.
