point special

something that i really, really hope happens in regards to finn and rey’s relationship in the upcoming films is a huge emphasis on how much FINN means to rey.

because a lot of ugly racists and re/ylos like to say that their relationship is so obviously ~one sided, that finn clearly likes rey but she doesn’t feel as strongly for him (when that’s far from the truth).

so what i REALLY want to see is rey being affectionate towards finn. i want to see her run to him and embrace him, i want to see her laugh at his jokes and look at him like he’s the only thing in the galaxy. i want HER to be the one to say “i love you,” or something along those lines, first- because not only would that be GREAT character development for rey, who has gone so long without having anyone and has finally allowed herself to grow attached to and feel for someone else- but also because it would prove that rey loves finn. it would prove that yes, rey, the white woman protagonist of this trilogy, loves finn, the black man protagonist of this trilogy.

so lucasfilm, please give me a rey who misses finn so much it hurts while she’s away with luke, a rey who cries over him and for him, a rey who is so obviously smitten with this good, brave, incredible man so that nobody can deny that finn is loved by her.

for once, let a black man be the hero; let him “get the girl,” let him be the shining light for those around him- let finn be loved, fiercely and undeniably, so that nobody can deny how important and amazing he is.

Yeah
Just as a general note
You should eliminate any thought that there is an expectation that you do anything by any age
You don’t have to be married with kids by 25
It’s ok to be 16 and never been kissed
There’s nothing wrong with you if you haven’t graduated from college by 22
You’re not a failure because you don’t have your dream job at 30
There are no rules to life. You don’t get special points for achieving certain things by a deadline. Just go at your own speed. It’s not a race.

I want a Sharkboy and Lavagirl remake where the CGI is insanely good and the acting is super emotional and intriguing, but nothing about the story changes. Sharkboy still has to sing the dream song and mister Electricidad still has to go “YOU ARE IN MY CLASS!!! NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND”

On Chat Noir’s Bad Luck

I saw a couple of posts saying that Chat fell twice off the sleigh, causing Ladybug to have to get him back up every time.

What I haven’t seen enough is people reminding that Chat Noir is fundamentally taking the hits for Ladybug because that’s his power. His bad luck allows Ladybug’s luck to exist.

You can’t say “Whoops that one’s lucky” unless someone else got unlucky. If everyone’s lucky, then the concept of luck doesn’t exist since nothing’s different.

It’s like good that can’t exist without evil.

Chat takes the hits, Ladybug doesn’t. Because he’s unlucky and she’s lucky.

If you rewatch all the ML episodes, you’ll notice that the akuma will always target Chat first before going for Ladybug. And if the akuma targets Ladybug directly, Chat will always jump between them because he’s the bad luck to her luck.

  • For example, in Lady Wifi, Alya targets Chat in priority, causing him to hide behind the tables while Ladybug figures out a strategy to take her down.
  • In Guitar Villain, Chat Noir distracts the Akuma yet again, allowing Ladybug to do her thing.
  • In Chronogirl, Chat jumps to protect Ladybug. Because she’s lucky? Or because he yearns to protect her? Both are correct.

He has to take the hits for her. Because that’s the very purpose of his luck.

It’s like he’s a hit magnet. All the Akumas are compelled to target him first.

Sure, Adrien does it because that’s how he is, altruistic. But also think of it as something that his Chat Noir persona just does for Ladybug. To keep the balance of luck and misfortune.

This special weapon is the Inkjet. It allows its user to hover in the air, and features a blob launcher that can be used to shoot ink blobs at enemies below. It seems to be a very powerful weapon, but it also leaves its user rather exposed. Once this special weapon runs out, the Inkjet explodes, sending its user to the exact point they activated the special from.

So this one guy here has hosted a bicycle race, a surfing race, a Pokémon Contest and a Singing Contest in 3 different regions.

He’s appeared in the Red, Green and Blue, Yellow, Ruby and Sapphire, and Black 2 and White 2 Chapters.

I guess Yamamoto seems keen on him

Is it just me or “self-diagnosers are faking it for attention!” makes absolutely no sense? Like…

This is the Internet. You have complete anonymity here. You can reinvent yourself and lie about every single aspect of your life. You don’t even need to try very hard to convince everyone. You can say you are whoever you are, you can say you are from a different country, of a different age, different gender… I mean technically you can even say you are Idris Elba or Hillary Clinton or something like that, although there’s a smaller chance people will believe you.

Now if a neurotypical person, or a person with Münchausen, would want to fake being neurodivergent/mentally ill, for attention or “special snowflake points” or whatever… what would stop them from saying they have a formal diagnosis? Cause it’s not like you can demand them to post their medical records - many actually professionally diagnosed people don’t have access to those.

I mean, why put yourself at danger for being mocked, ridiculed and doubted? Why not say you have been diagnosed years ago and have been in therapy and hospitalized twice and abused by psychiatrists and so on? Cause that will give you much more attention than saying “My name is Jamie, I’m a self-diagnosed autistic with anxiety, who knows scripts for job interviews/good stim toys to replace skin picking/home remedies for anxiety nausea?”.

To me if a person says they are self-diagnosed, that communicates that they are ready to tell the truth, admit the possibility of a mistake on their behalf and their intention to be a part of the community to share ideas and get support and help. It’s a small sign of their honesty and genuine intent. Now someone lying they have a formal diagnosis will insist on it because it seems more valid even though professionals can make mistakes too.

And considering that “you’re self-diagnosed!” argument is often used against people who most certainly have a formal diagnosis to silence them and mock them, it makes absolutely no sense to me why you need to spend your precious time attacking self-diagnosed people. They may not be exactly right about their subjective psychiatric label, but if they are talking about it, they probably have real traits and symptoms, so I doubt they are neurotypical.

So if you go around attacking self-diagnosed people, there’s a high chance you are harming those “actually disabled”/“actually mentally ill” people you claim to be trying to protect.

Sincerely, a professionally diagnosed mentally ill autistic person who supports genuine, well-informed psychiatric self-diagnosis.
