Jean is terrified of his new team. With the Ravens, he knew what to expect, how to act, what to do in any situation… He was an actor on his own life, always having to behave in a certain way. He always knew the script.

So when he meets the Trojans damn he is terrified. His new team is loud, and scandalous, and love to touch each other (and not with punches wtf) and hug and kiss and he is just paralyzed at this.

He has been taught he only have to talk when required, emotional connections are worthless and never show your feelings.

But with the time, he finds himself being less scared.

Because his team knows. He hasn’t talked to them that much but they know.

They know that if you want to give an exy advice to Jean you have to do it kindly. They know that Jean likes to stay at the court after practice to be even better so they take turns to stay with him so he doesn’t have to be alone. They know Jean doesn’t like going to parties (too much people, he tried once and had a panic attack) so they tried to found something to connect with him that wasn’t exy. Jeremy discovered he liked to stay late watching old French movies on TV so Laila searched for any cinema that played something like that and all of the team started going with Jean. Sometimes, it isn’t even all the team. Sometimes, it gets too loud and full so once a month it’s only Jean and Jeremy in the cinema (date goals tbh)

It’s not going to be easy to adapt. Sometimes, Jean thinks he is never going to fit with them. But he discovers, it’s so easy to be happy with his team.

He smiles more. He almost laugh (Jeremy discovered him trying not to laugh at his team being silly so Jean stopped, Jeremy was smiling all the day because of this). He try to do nice things to them as they do with him. He tries new things because he knows that make them happy. He starts opening more to the Trojans.

Next game, when Jeremy is doing a stupid dance bc they won, Jean laughs. It’s a quiet laugh but still. Everyone notices but doesn’t want to make him uncomfortable so they ignore it. Except Jeremy, who does visual contact with him. Jean smiles and Jeremy smile grows even more.

In that moment, Jean is not terrified anymore. He is happy.

What if there was a different kind of gun that wouldn’t fire skin-piercing bullets that are able to damage nerves and end a life and instead bullets that stick to skin and paralyze the entire body for an extended period of time until further action is taken. If something like that came about, I don’t think there would be much to argue about gun rights because they would be safer with less irreversible effects.

Like it or not, some people need a gun to protect themselves from home intruders, but not in the open public.

Try to imagine a life without timekeeping. You probably can’t. You know the month, the year, the day of the week. There is a clock on your wall or the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calendar, a time for dinner or a movie. Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check its watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays. an alone measures time. Man alone chimes the hour. And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures. A fear of time running out

whatever you do don't think about tony sitting at rhodey's bedside (before he woke up paralyzed) and just saying "please please please wake up" over and over again :)

Why are y’all onto me-

The suffocating fear Tony must have felt after rushing Rhodey into a hospital, while he already has FRIDAY scanning and cataloging Rhodey’s injuries and he’s calculating the chances of Rhodey waking up, of him fully healing and so on.

When Rhodey’s out of surgery and cared for at the moment, Tony refuses to leave his side even though he’s not family (he IS family though, at least they both feel like they are. They are brothers though not by blood) and he’s never been religious but in these long hours while Rhodey is unconscious, Tony prays for him.

Prays for Rhodey to wake up, never once letting go of his hand. Whispering quiet pleas into Rhodey’s skin, “Please, Rhodey, please. Wake up. I can’t lose you. Don’t do this to me, I beg you-”

I got married to my best friend! We celebrated amongst all of our friends and family. My dad who had a massive stroke two years ago (and was initially written off as comatose for life) worked his ass off in therapy to be able to walk me down to isle, half paralyzed and all. We got married on our terms by the person we wanted, and for the most part, were completely respected in our decision. My husband and I wrote our own vows and if it wasn’t evident we are so in sync with each other before our vows, it sure as hell was after - almost to the point of freaky how similar they were.

Basically…it was the best day of my life with the love of my life.

Always the same thing.
Darkness enveloped the cubby hole : the only source of light disappeared as he double-locked the door. Alec was frightened and paralyzed when he heard the steps getting closer and closer. He could already feel the tears rolling down his cheeks and his body trembling.
“I’m begging you, I’m sorry…”
“There’s no I’m sorry. It’s too late.”

Prepping can be expensive and yes you can spend a lot of money on a few preps BUT I found 18 low cost ways to start your prepping journey. When the need to prepare for an uncertain future becomes a pressing reality for the new prepper, it’s easy to get overwhelmed.

There are so many things to buy and to do that it becomes almost paralyzing. “Where to start?” becomes the question at the forefront of their minds. Frustrated and anxious, many preppers assume that it’s going to cost a ton of money to get started. Read the full article in the link below:

Variation of many of my text posts, version 34

I don’t know how to get unstuck. On the one hand, my dysphoria makes me want to transition; I ache for my reflection to match what my brain tells me I should see. On the other hand, I’m paralyzed by a fear that I would lose all that I love, only to end up lonely and making people uncomfortable. I know the reality will likely be somewhere in the middle, but I don’t know how to move forward.

This all requires faith, I suppose. Faith in my choices and faith in myself. (I want to include faith in my loved ones, but that’s a potential can of worms.) I’ve always struggled with faith of all sorts, preferring proof over an unseen hope. I just wish there were a way I could know that everything would be okay in the end.

Putting my thoughts in writing helps, so I hope you’ll understand my hand-wringing if you have seen something like this before from me. I know that I ultimately have to find the answers in myself that are right for me at the right time, but if anyone has any suggestions, I’m all ears.


When a formerly-paralyzed patient decided to surprise her favorite nurse with the news of her rediscovered ability to walk, the nurse’s ecstatic reaction served as a reminder of how much hospital workers truly care for their patients.

Take a moment today to thank a nurse or caregiver in your life. [via]

2008 - Brian Sterner broke his neck almost 14 years ago and is a quadriplegic. Sterner, who can drive, was arrested on a traffic violation. When he was booked into the Orient Road Jail last month, Sterner couldn’t believe what happened.

He says a deputy looked at him and didn’t believe he was a quadriplegic. She walked behind him, took the handles on the back of the hospital-grade wheel chair and dumped it forward.

Sterner says he tried to roll as he was going down, but hit so hard he thought he had broken two ribs. Then, while he was on the floor, deputies frisked him and tried to get him back into the chair.

Sterner says it’s incredibly degrading and it’s an example of how poorly trained the Hillsborough Sheriff’s Office is. He adds, if they’re trying to figure out if somebody needs to be in a wheelchair or not, there are many other ways to do it than to dump somebody on their face. [video]
