posting because i felt like it

7

I’m gonna do this right now. On this post.

This is my favorite video of mine and at the same time, why it made me subscribe to your channel: Five Nights at Freddy’s 2

I subscribed to Mark because he didn’t feel like an entertainer, he felt like a friend to me. I feel emotions when I watch your videos because I can relate to it. Whatever game you’re playing, it just seems I’m watching a friend play a game. That is also the reason why I’m still here after almost 3 years.

I care because you’re the reason why I’m happy. I never felt this joy in my entire life until I discovered you. And I never regret clicking that like button and I will always, always be a part of your community. 

And last thing, it made me subscribe to you ‘cause I know how much fun you’re having. How much hard work you put in! It is your passion and I believed in you. I am proud of you, Mark. 

somanyofthekids replied to your post: What was Tony’s pregnancy like in regency au? How…

This is so fucking cute, and consider this: when the baby first starts to kick, it’s actually really light and you can’t feel it from the outside. Steve And Bucky would have to wait probably a couple of months before they could feel it. I’m just imagining them plastered all over Tony’s stomach waaay before it’s possible for them to feel anything, like “I think I felt a kick!!” “No sweetheart, that was me moving, because apparently all four of us are sitting in this chair now”

Lmao long-suffering Tony is my king tbh.

I’m Sorry

I deleted all the asks in my inbox because I don’t want to keep making theories and predictions that are ultimately going to be proven wrong soon anyways. I’m not an expert, and I don’t know why people want to hear my opinion. I’m just as clueless as anyone else. XD 

I’ve suddenly felt self-conscious about the claims I’m making. My posts come across as me acting like some self-proclaimed know-it-all, but my opinion isn’t more valid than anyone else’s. The BNHA manga will probably keep proving me wrong time and time again. 

I’m also kind of sick seeing the same asks over and over. I feel like I repeat myself sometimes. 

I’ll probably open my ask back up after this chapter comes out. I appreciate the people who are pming me. I like being treated as a fellow fan rather than some great Kirishima expert. 

Thanks for the support though! People here are so nice and friendly to me. I’m not annoyed by the people who send me asks. Some of the asks are actually really cool and stuff I want to talk about. I guess, I just need a break from it all. I want to make whatever post I want without being prompted to, at least for the next couple of days. 

I’ll turn my ask back on soon and talk about whatever. 

this is like the smallest thing, but the other day i was scrolling along in the hellsite as you do and someone had made a post about trans inclusivity and then someone else had come along much later and put “reblog to support the amazing trans people in your life” and a third person responded and said “you know it’s almost always ‘reblog to make TERFs mad’ and never ‘reblog to support trans people’ and that’s kind of sad”. 

so anyways that stuck in the back of my mind i guess, because just now as i was making that post about bisexual character headcanons, i wrote out “add your own to make biphobes angry” and then paused and backspaced and wrote “add your own and support your local bisexual” and it just felt so much….nicer. like a little flower in the ground. 

okay, sappy moment over. back to hellsite scrolling. 

anonymous asked:

Let me just say thankyou for your posts talking about the mental health in BnHA. For me its obvious but so many its not and like the manga points out, so many make a villian out of Bakugo. Which I cannot stand. The kid is smart, loyal, strong, and determined. He does not have the same personality as Deku that can get through to people so I felt for him when Shoto clearly still wasnt ready to use his fire power and froze up because of it. I love Bakugo, so thankyou for protecting the sweet child.

You’re welcome, Anon. Thank you for this ask; there is one thing that I felt I needed to be clear on, but never found the opportunity to do so. The thing is, I don’t think Bakugou is ‘a sweet child’. I think Bakugou has a problematic attitude and mental health issues that need to be taken care of, seriously and with benevolence. What I’m defending is Bakugou being seriously taken care of, not Bakugou being an adorable but misunderstood child. If you do that, you’re deliberately putting aside all the bad things he did and idealizing him, and that’s not being fair to him and issues he’s illustrating. That’s not what I’m defending.

We have to take Bakugou for what he truly is; he’s smart, strong-willed and passionate, but he has mental health issues AND his behavior has been violent and abusive towards Midoriya. One doesn’t erase or excuse the other. He doesn’t really regret anything he did. He’s improving, but he never apologized to Midoriya for bullying him, and for telling him to go kill himself. I’m not telling Bakugou is a good or bad person. Nobody is totally good or bad; we’re all bound to do bad and good things, because our behaviors are influenced by a lot of settings depending on the situation, and sometimes, we mess up (I’m putting aside talks about systemic oppression and violent behaviors towards oppressed people). What’s important is improving, realizing our mistakes, fixing it if we can and moving forward. We’re not perfect, nobody is, so at least what we can do is prevent, fix and help each other when we’ve taken wrong paths. It won’t help Bakugou, whether we demonize or idealize him, because we won’t confront what he did and won’t improve the situation. When you care for someone, and I care for Bakugou, you want them to be at peace, happy and satisfied with themselves; something Bakugou clearly isn’t. And to do that, you need to be honest and fair. 

Bakugou’s behavior has been wrong on a lot of aspects, and it’s not correctly addressed by others and especially adults in charge. It won’t help him to demonize him, it’s just a convenient way to silence him and ignore his medical and emotional care. I saw people telling that if Bakugou wasn’t restrained, he would’ve trashed the stadium and fought Todoroki. Let’s say he would have (even if I stated he probably wouldn’t have because he was frustrated for not winning fairly); then, wouldn’t it had been smarter to disqualify him to prove they were condemning his attitude and protect everyone? Wouldn’t it had been more efficient to keep him in a room, talk to him and wait for him to calm down, than to expose and humiliate him the way they did? What were they really trying to protect when they chained, cuffed and muzzled Bakugou? Bakugou and Todoroki, or the entertainment of the crowd and UA’s public image? Please, just think honestly about this. The answer is just evident. Bakugou still wants to be a hero to be the best, kick villains’ butt and win. Not to save others and be kind to people that need help. He failed his provisional licence exam because he just didn’t care about saving people, and endangered them when he told them to help themselves. I have my idea on what will eventually trigger his urge to save, because it’s not easy to awake to a feeling you never felt before, unless you’re in a situation that pushes you to do so. It’s not something I’m making up, just look at these panels. 

They perfectly resume dynamics between Bakugou and Midoriya ; they both incarnate one of those two urges ‘to save’ and ‘to win’, and while Midoriya is being driven by Bakugou to improve his urge to win and surpass himself, Bakugou is still far for awakening to the urge to save. However, we can see he’s slowly opening up to the possibility by befriending Kirishima; he tried, in his own way, to care for him, and that’s a good beginning. Bakugou began to open up to more positive feelings such as caring for others and accepting to be cared for; because it doesn’t mean you’re weak when people want to help. It’s something Midoriya never made him feel, and Kirishima did.

Anyway, my post on mental health came from the urge to stop seeing people make fun of how Bakugou is handled and to clear issues about mental health that aren’t obvious for most people, because we’re either not even aware they exist, or because we’re not used to see them treated in popular representation. What Bakugou did was wrong; but the way he is treated is also wrong. We seriously need to be honest about Bakugou; I see a lot of people either demonizing or idealizing him, and that’s not positive. I’m sorry if this answer comes out as a little harsh, it’s not personal Anon, it’s not you being good or bad, it’s just questioning our perspectives and ways to appropriate contents. It’s about an attitude on that character that I find not really honest because whether you’re demonizing or overprotecting Bakugou, you’re not taking him for what he truly is but more for what you want him to be, and that’s not being fair to him, what he’s representing, and others characters.

wattaabunkamamuti  asked:

People who are actually from Okinawa wouldn’t call you “Okinawan".

So some of you may be wondering why I sent an ask to myself and why it’s so negative.. well, I recently came across an incredibly old post where a particular user had told me this. My response back then was great but I want to add something…

This particular user who had sent this to me a few years ago was not Okinawan but because they are mixed Japanese, felt that they knew more about my culture because of that. And I want to say this, if you say ignorant shit like this then you are showing how fucking ignorant you are of Okinawan culture. You do not apply Japanese culture and Japanese mindsets and think that they are going to be applicable to how Okinawan culture and society works, it doesn’t work that way. Not only do Okinawans from Okinawa call Okinawan diaspora, Okinawan but they EMBRACE their diaspora counterparts. And you, as a Japanese person, should never talk about a culture you have no interest in, don’t know the culture, and have no ties to.

To the ignorant asshole who told me this sometime ago. I’m so glad my fellow Uchinanchu would and do call me Okinawan. And that Okinawans in general are accepting and uplifting and I’m truly glad to be able to call myself Okinawan.

it really bothers me that so many people on this site treat ableism like it’s black and white.

just now i saw a post where op was like “i’m glad that spinners are popular because it normalizes fidgets and decreases stigma” and someone replied like “no!! it’s absolutely TERRIBLE that neurotypicals are using these fidgets because when they get in trouble they make things harder for mentally ill kids!!” and like you guys do realize that? you’re both right? it isn’t a decisive fact that neurotypicals using fidgets is either good or bad, there are both benefits and consequences that need to be taken into consideration.

a few months ago there was a post going around that was like, *neurotypical voice* why are you bouncing your leg, and somebody reblogged it saying that the post was ableist because autistic kids can get overstimulated by leg bouncing. i go to a school for the mentally disabled, and i’ve been in this exact scenario, my classmate wasn’t able to focus because i was bouncing my leg and although i felt bad i told him that i wouldn’t be able to stop for long because i do it subconsciously due to my adhd. he wasn’t being ableist for asking me to stop, and i wasn’t being ableist for saying i couldn’t, we just both had different needs. in the end, our compromise was that i went to work in the computer lab.

you have to understand that there is always more than one side to issues like these, and that we should be striving for understanding and balance over demonization of one side and blind support of the other. this is especially relevant when people on both sides are mentally ill or disabled, because sometimes symptoms will clash and you just need to deal with it.

Why Commenting On FanFiction Is Important

Alright kids, Boo here with a hopefully non-arrogant PSA.

I’m a writer of FanFiction because I like it and it’s my preferred genre (also a great way to receive feedback on writing that I can use on originals, bref). But like with most artistic work posted online, I have very little feedback.

When I was in a slightly writing rut, I cranked one shots left and right, nothing out of the ordinary. But instead of people commenting with their thoughts and good feedback, they just gave me requests.

I don’t think I could ever put into words what that felt like, but I’ll try (the irony of being a writer). It suddenly felt tiring, being a writer, and very quickly I stopped writing altogether. I only ever showed my friend what I wrote and left it at that. I haven’t published anything for a while after. It felt like people were treating me like a mule wanting me to do work for them, and I just wasn’t up for that. I lost my will to write, and then I began to think, “If I post something else other than what was requested, will people even read it?”

Then you get the infamous comments, “You haven’t forgotten about my request right??? Here’s another.”

That just adds anxiety and guilt. I’m purposely ignoring the comments to save my own uncreative ass, at least that’s what it feels like.

After weeks of convincing myself that my stories are worth sharing no matter how many people read them, I started writing and publishing again while working on some longer pieces. Slowly it got better.

Now this week, I remembered I joined another fanfiction platform, and realized I had never published anything on it. I had an idea, and so I started writing. It didn’t come out as I imagined it would, but I was so proud? Like, I started feeling happy about what I created again. Like genuine happiness that I haven’t felt in months since my last published work.

A few hours later, I get this comment:

I cranked out three 3k stories after reading this.

In four days.

It never happened before, and I don’t know how many times it will happen again. It was one comment, but it gave me so much fighting spirit that I think I’m on my way to regaining my initial writer mindset.

Fanfiction writers depend on feedback as a validation that their stories matter to people. If you’re wondering why your favourite author hasn’t updated/posted in a while, ask yourself, “Did I do everything that would convince them to continue writing this?”
