The thing that I disagree so much with people regarding Ciel twins
Our Ciel never be loved from his family
C’mon we have his own flashback of him having asthma and Madam Red taking care of his health while his mother and lizzy are concerned.
There’s also a moment when his parent let him sleep together because he scared of the thunder.
Vincent personally request to Diederich to help both twins anytime (So basically never he even forgotten about Our!Ciel safety and how he got the equal treatment, caring like he did toward Real!Ciel too).
Real Ciel was quite evil toward Our!Ciel in the past
You know when people said they hated twin cliche they thought of Real!Ciel not really care for Our!Ciel while this is so wrong I mean look they have a shared toys together to play. This image also implied that they used to play chess together.
In the cult when both were being kidnapped, Real!Ciel assured Our!Ciel not to be scared because he’s here to protect him.
There’s also a foreshadowing where Arthur mentioned he is having little brother in the same age Our!Ciel when he got mentioned, Our!Ciel gave a sad smile because he probably also used to be cared so much by his twin brother.
So regarding some people opinion, I may agree that the current real!ciel was no way kind like he used to be but I just hope people not disregard that Our!Ciel is no way get a bad treatment during his childhood until he is being kidnapped and prisoned in the cult.
sometimes you need to accept that yes i may have been a little bit manipulative. yes i worded something in a specific way that would make my friend/fp/SO feel a bit guilty. yes i could have handled that situation in a much better way. yes i am wrong.
This is a great example of what I mean when I talk about the symptoms of personality disorders. Lots of people have the traits described in personality disorders. Most people have them at the “adaptive” or “subclinical” levels. Not many people experience these things to the “disordered” or “severely disordered” level described above.
Note - these specific examples are not enough in and of themselves to diagnose a personality disorder; a personality disorder is a collection of many different traits that all must be experienced at the disordered or severely disordered levels.

it makes me sad to see people dismissing jumin’s affection in the valentine’s day dlc just because he buys so many gifts.
not everyone expresses their love solely through words or cuddles. sometimes people enjoy picking out items that they think others might like, and enjoy giving gifts as it’s their way of showing how much they care. gifts are not inherently bad, and not inherently a sign that your love is fake or inadequate.
some people don’t like receiving gifts, and that’s okay! it’s also okay to give gifts if it’s a way to express your love and make others happy!
disliking jumin’s valentine’s day ending is not the problem. disliking it because you think gifts automatically diminish his feelings is kinda missing the point.
hey hey kids just a reminder that inconsistent artsyles are a really really good thing to have as amateur artists because that’s how you allow yourself to explore different looks and thus develop a better artsyle. Just make sure you practice frequently! Find details that you like and keep them, but don’t focus so hard on setting one consistent look for your characters yet.
“It’s a challenge that I fully accept. I’m happy that April Ludgate made such an impression, but it’s hard to shed that sometimes, especially when I want people to see I can do other things. The ironic thing is that, before April, I really wasn’t known as the sarcastic, eye-rolling weirdo. That wasn’t, like, my thing growing up. I mean, I was funny, but that became my thing because it’s the first thing people saw me in.” Aubrey Plaza for Backstage September 2017
I really love the argument that you should support Planned Parenthood because they do things other than abortions. Like I need to support an organization because sometimes they do things *other* than tearing infants limb from limb? Pretty sure I can find dozens of other organizations that do all of those good things with no baby murder so…
sometimes someone will make a remark about a behavior i relate to, then i take it a step further in my head and i get weirdly excited because self-awareness?! like wow i’m an asshole & i KNOW WHY i feel the need to behave this way…now i can heal from that mindset and change
I guess I’ve been doing a better job of avoiding the worst of the left here because I honestly didn’t know that many were still insisting that evidence of connections between Russia and Trump’s administration, and of Russian interference in elections in the US and Europe to prop up right-wing candidates, are just elaborate liberal fantasies AND a pretext for the US to go to war with Russia. Because…imperialism. Or the Deep State. Or both.
it’s like when I see comments from people enraged that democrats haven’t prioritized introducing a health care bill that mandates single payer. I’m wondering, have you all not caught up to 2017 yet? Or is this what happens when your primary sources of information are the Intercept and tumblr posts by teenage communists?
wrong. not every two females in a show hate each other. this shot is from the show, not from curtain call, not from anything else, but from the actual show. look at them. they are smiling at each other. they genuinely like each other. they do not hate each other.
Hmm. After reading your post on what Shoma might do to improve, what do you think Yuzuru could do to improve? I know a lot of fans tend to see favorite skaters with bias, and that covers up a lot of flaws or lacking points in that skater.
i could’ve sworn i answered this for both shoma and yuzuru before but i can’t find the replies now…oh well. i think yuzuru could improve his posture and carriage. he has a tendency to look down at the ice often; it’s especially apparent when he’s primarily focusing on landing his jumps during a performance. it also varies depending on the type of program he’s doing; i thought it was more noticeable in something introverted like hope and legacy, for example. his posture is much better than when he was younger, but the looking down thing is a pet peeve of mine. it’s not really a huge fault, just something that i find irritating, like bad spirals with unpointed toes.
other than that (and the fact that he dances like a noodle), i don’t have much to say because yuzuru is a pretty well-rounded skater. he has good spins and good jumps, uses difficult transitions well, really nothing to critique there. he still has room for improvement in SS, like all skaters do, but he’s pretty decent there too. (he is not, however, as good as patrick, imo. it seems to be common for people to equate their SS these days and i…disagree. but i also realize there is an element of subjectivity here.) any other criticisms would be specific to choreo and certain performances and can get very subjective.
