pendant globes

anonymous asked:

Sorry if you've answered something like this before, but do you have any recommendations for stim toys that are on the subtle side and can preferably be kept on the person?

It’s fine! You can always check my ask tag to see what’s been answered, but I understand if you’re not able to flip through five pages of asks (and tags are harder to access for mobile users, although I keep the tags pages linked in my user description to make it easier). You might like to look through this previous ask for ideas, as it discusses lanyard-clipable stim toys! In addition, if you’re in a classroom or desk office setting, some of the stationery items mentioned in this ask might be workable as stealth toys.

I’m not sure what kind of toy you might be after (chewable, fidget, etc) so I’ll list everything I know of that’s both on-the-person portable and subtle/stealth. Jewellery is like to be your best option. This is a little harder for people like me who prefer not to present in ways socially-coded as feminine, but, thankfully, most of these things don’t have strong associations with a binary gender.

Stimtastic really does have some of the best offerings for teenagers and adults after subtle/stealth stim jewellery.

Fidget jewellery that’s perfectly stealth: Roller Ball Bike Chain Bracelet | Extra Wide Bike Chain Bracelet | Spinner Rings (link to category, in various colours and designs) | Double Circle Earrings | Concentric Circles Necklace | Scented Vial Necklace (I have the cinnamon one and I love it - it’s small enough to be unobtrusive/merely decorative and it smells divine) | Snake Twist Necklace (a subtle Tangle alternative) | Mobius Flower Earrings (I took these off the earring backings and turned them into necklace pendants strung on a leather cord - gender neutral and nobody knows it’s stim jewellery) | Heavy Bike Chain Bracelet | Interlocking Bike Chain Bracelet | Light Bike Chain Bracelet | Wrist Coil Bracelets (like wearing a hair tie on your wrist - unremarkable) | Zipper Bracelets.

Fidget toys that can be attached to a bag or belt loop: Rolling Bead Lanyard | Large Bead Ring | Squishy Panda Charm | Jumbo Bead Ring.

(Note: how stealth these ones are depends somewhat on how eclectic you are in presentation. I can attach a bead ring or a squishy to a belt loop and have no one remark on it, but I’m the kind of person psychologists politely call “quirky”.)

Fidget toys that can fit into a pocket and hide in your hand/palm when someone comes over to your desk: Spiky Animal Fidget | Boinks Fidget | Mini Prickle/Hedge Balls.

(Note: I’ve found the animal prickle fidget toys in multipacks in the party sections of dollar shops and Toys R Us, $4-$4.50 AUD. I’ve also found the mini prickle balls in multipacks in the party sections of dollar shops and Big W, $3-$5 AUD.)

Chewables that are closer to stealth: Chewable Dulcimer Necklace | Chewable Trapezoid Necklace | Chewable Doughnut Necklace. (These are the smaller or plainer chewable pendants, and I assure you, I’ve seen folks wearing non-silicone versions of these. I’ve also walked around various cities, stores and markets wearing the Braid Pendant and nobody has once thought anything of it if they don’t see it in my mouth. Oversized jewellery, especially for femme-leaning folks, is pretty fashionable.)

DIYs: If you want to make your own roller bead lanyards, here’s the tutorial. If you want to make your own bead rings and make them even more stealth, here’s my tutorial on making bead ring necklaces. Nobody has ever treated these as anything more than funky necklaces, and I wear these everywhere, every day.

@caseydickdanger​, if you’re located in the US, makes some seriously unique handcrafted pieces. Most things have textures if you’re just after a necklace pendant to touch and handle. The really stimmy in-stock items include the Nautical Bottle Necklace, Mocha Tubez Bracelet and the Mermaid Sand Tubez Bracelet.

@spacerobotstudio has a phenomenal selection of funky, unique fidget necklaces: Spirit Level Necklace in Red | Spinner Pendant Necklace in Copper and Teal | Bronze Double-Sided Compass Necklace | Pink and Blue Saturn Spinner Necklace (oh, god, want) | Dots and Brown Spinner Pendant Necklace | Blue Glitter Globe Necklace.

Banggood or ebay also sell tiny squishies. Mochi squishies are perfect for holding and hiding in one’s hand (links to many individual ones in this post) but most of the cheap squishy assortments include smaller bun and cake squishies as well (and these have strap attachments for adding to bags).

(If you’re after more bag or lanyard-attachment fidget toys, here’s the ultimate post on where to find edamame poppers!)

Etsy has a wealth of spinner rings. There’s a wide variety running from affordable to bespoke.

You can also find the wrist coil/telephone cord bracelets in cheap multipacks in every dollar store - look in the hair accessory section. Also available on ebay! If you’re not the kind of person who wears bracelets, I’ve seen them as lanyard clips in many dollar shops (link to listing on Banggood).

Chubuddy and Amazon also have chewable telephone cord bracelets, if you want something unremarkable that’s chewable and a fidget.

Chewigem has several silicone raindrop pendant chewables that look just like oversized funky pendants.

In short, there’s a lot of options, especially jewellery-wise. However, most of these sellers are based in the US, so if you’re an international stimmer, be prepared for international shipping rates and conversion fees. While there are therapy-focused stim toy stores internationally, most of them don’t offer a lot in the way of subtlety!

Good luck. If this doesn’t help you enough, please let me know. If there’s something I should have included and didn’t, please also let me know!

Vampire!Mingyu Part 1

Part 1 || Part 2 + Revised Part 1 || Part 3

K I’ve been stanning a Vampire Mingyu for the past 3 days… Save me he will be the death of me. I COULDN’T EVEN WAIT UNTIL TOMORROW TO POST THIS @sunnysidewrites @aesthedick-cheol @kpopaddicti0ns YOU 3 KNEW THIS WAS COMING HERE IT IS LOL

IN THE NAME OF ALL THINGS GYU: I LOVE (YOU) GUYS

  • In this AU/world, people know vampires exist
  • They could kill you, but they’ve gone into hiding, because there’s so few of them now
  • Almost all died from (extremely old) age or being killed by vampire hunters
  • So they aren’t a big threat, but you’re advised to keep onions hanging at your door or something
  • You’re a young woman who lives on her own (this isn’t gender neutral for a reason)
  • You were going home from your job
  • When you heard something coming from the alley beside you
  • It sounded like…crying?
  • So you stepped in there
  • HOW COULD YOU BE SO STUPID
  • Seconds later you were pinned against the wall with a firm grip at your throat
  • And in front of you was a tall figure
  • And he opened his mouth…
  • Fangs. Vampire fangs. (What else really?)
  • You just have one thought in your head, I’m going to die this is a vampire I’M GONNA DIE
  • He ripped open the jacket you had to expose your neck
  • Then the vampire stopped moving
  • He froze and loosened his grip before saying with a soft voice
  • “Where did you get the necklace?”
  • “I got it from-”
  • “Your grandmother? She gave it to you for your granddaughter? Told you never to let anyone else touch it?”
  • “How do you kno-”
  • Then he just drops on his hands and knees
  • “I’M SORRY I APOLOGIZE I’M REALLY SORRY I DIDN’T KNOW YOU WERE AN HEIR I DIDN’T MEAN TO HURT YOU PLEASE FORGIVE ME-”
  • You awkwardly touch his head to make him stop
  • “AGH don’t touch me I’m lower class I’m not fit to be touched by your pure hands!”
  • You have 0 idea wtf is going on like what is this vampire doing is he worshipping me what
  • “Um…explain pls?”
  • “You don’t know about…the Council? Didn’t your grandmother tell you when she gave you the necklace?”
  • “My grandma was dying when she gave this to me-”
  • “Ok you need to follow me right now we  need to get you to the Council”
  • Why not follow this vampire that knows about your grandma it’s a gr8 option
  • The man leads you to the end of the alley and reluctantly gives you his hand
  • And the second you touch him you’re teleported to a small storage house in a garden of white roses
  • The tall vampire knocks on the red door of the tiny storage building
  • And another man- no, vampire comes to open the door and greets you both
  • “Ah, Mingyu. Is she-”
  • As you caught a glimpse of the room behind the vampire and leaned slightly to look behind him, your neck was exposed
  • The vampire at the door saw your necklace
  • “…A white rose tainted with blood…Mingyu how did you find her?”
  • “…I almost killed her” Mingyu responds shyly
  • “Well I’m sure that won’t matter. Just get to Jun.”
  • So he lets you and Mingyu in, and Mingyu leads you through a giant red room and through a big door, to a black room
  • There sitting on a throne was a tired looking vampire
  • Mingyu kneels and you were about to follow suit, when the vampire at the throne perked his head up
  • “Don’t kneel!” He exclaims, and immediately bows to you until everyone else did the same
  • You’re still completely oblivious to what’s happening 👏👏👏
  • It’s finally explained you were given the heir rose, one of 6 pendants scattered around the globe to indicate a bloodline (“blood tainted”; but also bc it has red paint)
  • These pendants trace back to the 6 daughters of a vampire and a human, making them halflings
  • Wow explains your sharp teeth
  • But basically you 6 were going to be gathered to find a suitable “mate” to give the human blood another jolt of vampire blood
  • This is really weird and creepy but hey, they’re vampires and NO I’m not trying to copy Twilight I literally just remembered that this kinda happened in that series
  • Mingyu and you get screamed at because Mingyu was breaking rules and you tried protecting him from being executed
  • But Mingyu just storms off and you follow him to a guest room in this giant palace
  • And he sits on the bed with his head in his hands
  • You sit next to him and move his head to face you
  • You’re looking into his reddish eyes (DO YOU SEE WHERE THIS IS GOING)
  • Flustered Vampire Gyu can’t help himself from touching your cheek
  • “I…I can’t help it…can I…”
  • And he kisses you
  • CUUEEEEEE THE MAKEOUT SESSION

ANNNNDDD CLIFFHANGER

Little handmade tiny terrarium pendant I made recently. I’m hoping to see if anyone would be interested in buying these cause I need the money so badly, Might start a small kickstarter cause i have so many ideas but no way of getting it started. The tree and everything on the inside is handmade by me. I’m going through very hard times both financially and mentally and I’m just trying to stay busy. What do you guys think?

Vampire!Mingyu (Part 2+revised Part 1)

Part 1 || Part 2 || Part 3

@diaryofadorkykid: “EXTEND IT E X TE N D I T” (and also others lol)

Woo! Extended version! This version will be more detailed, so ATTENTION: SOME OF THE FIRST PART IS REPEATED HERE, but reread it anyway bc it’s different. (I added more details)ALSO THIS IS NOT GENDER NEUTRAL FOR A REASON SORRY

  • So he lets you and Mingyu in, and Mingyu leads you through a giant red room
  • “Uh…you should stay close to me, okay?”
  • You just nod bc you’re stunned at this giant red ballroom filled with vampires and bats And when you pass some furry bat person, you just jump and gasp, and latch onto Mingyu’s arm
  • He still thinks you shouldn’t touch him with your “pure hands” but you’re not touching his skin so he lets it slide
  • But people start staring at you and murmuring things, before clearing a path when someone spots your necklace
  • Mingyu leads you through this giant red ballroom to some giant door in the back, leading to a black room that is slightly smaller There sitting on a throne was a tired looking vampire
  • Mingyu kneels and you were about to follow suit, when the vampire at the throne perked his head up
  • “Don’t kneel!” He exclaims, and immediately bows to you until everyone else did the same
  • You’re still completely oblivious to what’s happening 👏👏👏
  • It’s finally explained you were given the heir rose, one of 6 pendants scattered around the globe to indicate a bloodline (“blood tainted”; but also bc it has red paint)
  • These pendants trace back to the 6 daughters of a vampire and a human, making them halflings
  • Wow explains your sharp teeth But basically you 6 descendents were going to be gathered to find a suitable “mate” to give the human blood another jolt of vampire blood
  • This is really weird and creepy but hey, they’re vampires and NO I’m not trying to copy Twilight I literally just remembered that this kinda happened in that series
  • But as Mingyu explains what had happened, the royal vampire court starts to yell him
  • The vampire on the throne, Vampire prince Jun *cough* Intouchables influenced this *cough*, is really chill but has to listen to his advisors bc he isn’t king yet
  • (He explains later that his widowed mother is in hiding bc her husband was killed by vampire hunters, so he can’t rule on his own yet)
  • “Mingyu…you know you are lower class. We have strictly banned feeding on the streets. You broke that rule”
  • Poor Mingyu is about to break down he’s shaking
  • You place a hand on his lowered head but Jun tells you to leave him be
  • To the vampires, Mingyu is some kind of “peasant”, a weaker vampire because he was “turned” and not born to vampire parents
  • Since you are a halfblood (more like 1/32 blood but anyway) or a human with vampire blood, you are the highest class and the “purest” making anyone else filthy to you and not suited to be touched
  • But as Mingyu takes the screaming
  • Yea NOPE™ you’re not taking any of this BS
  • Like c'mon! You’re screaming at him bc he’s hungry?! What logic is that?!?!
  • “Yes, but he broke a rule. He has to be executed-”
  • “WELL YOUR STUPID RULE COULD’VE KILLED HIM ANYWAY WHY KILL HIM NOW THIS JUST SHOWS HE WAS STRONG ENOUGH TO LIVE ON AN EMPTY STOMACH”
  • Room: dead silent
  • Vampires: stunned
  • You: ticked off
  • Mingyu: in love
  • Jun can’t even do anything bc you’re a higher class than him
  • They can’t execute you anyway they need you
  • Also you have a good point, Mingyu could be helpful
  • He would talk to you about Mingyu’s life options
  • But Mingyu just storms off and you follow him to a guest room in this giant palace
  • And he sits on the bed with his head in his hands
  • You sit next to him without a word
  • “…Mingyu? Are you okay”
  • *audible grumbles*
  • “Hey! I just saved your life, and I get nothing?! No ‘thank you’?!”
  • “…sorry…thank you…I just…”
  • You turn his head to face you
  • He’s too upset to even care at this point that you’re touching him
  • You’re looking into his reddish tinted eyes
  • He tries to avoid eye contact but your eyes…too…irresistible… (DO YOU SEE WHERE THIS IS GOING)
  • Flustered Vampire Gyu can’t help himself from touching your cheek
  • “I…I can’t help it…can I…”
  • And he kisses you
  • CUUEEEEEE THE MAKEOUT SESSION
  • He even lifts you onto his lap comfortably
  • Like forget his teeth his breath smells sweet
  • And vampires can’t taste other vampire spit, it’s normal to them…but to you his spit must taste like candy (kind of disgusting but you get the point)
  • (Behind the scenes secret it tastes like pink cotten candy)
  • And tbh this would probably continue further…except-
  • Cue your necklace glowing bright white
  • Mingyu stops kissing you and stares at your necklace…in disbelief?
  • He pulls you straight out of the room and into a different garden than the one at the entrance
  • And there are 6 different colored rose fields surrounding a space in the center
  • Mingyu nudges you to walk to the center
  • And when you do the white roses start glowing instead of your necklace
  • And soon every vampire at the ball is gathered around, and 5 other girls are standing next to you
  • All the roses are glowing at this point
  • “Oh, look girls! The last heir has arrived!” a girl says
  • Once Jun arrives at the scene, everyone goes quiet
  • “Ah, finally. ‘The roses will smile at the moon’. Well, this is it you 6, all we need now is to find you suitable partners”
  • Jun arranges for the other vampire groups around the world to send their pure bloods to his palace
  • The test to win your heart begins!!!
  • As for Mingyu…for now he’s watching in the shadows…
“it’s okay. i couldn’t sleep anyway.”

Clarke had been tossing and turning for what felt like an hour when she was startled by a quiet thud outside her door. Reaching for the softball bat she kept in the corner (a reminder of her high-school athlete days; though it didn’t see its intended purpose much these days, it came in handy for moments like these), she eased the door open to peek outside.

In the hall sat Bellamy, head tipped back against the wall, eyes closed. It looked like an awfully uncomfortable position to fall asleep in — but then again, this wasn’t quite the first time Clarke had found him like this, and she had a feeling he hadn’t meant to fall asleep.

“Hey. Bellamy.”
