sometimes things are 'just so'

one of my fav characters on television is brick heck from the middle (which is also one of my fav tv shows) bc i feel like he’s a (mostly) accurate portrayal of someone on the autism spectrum, and his family is an accurate portrayal of a neurotypical family that’s supportive of neurodivergence but still struggles to always be considerate of it, but they make an effort and they apologize when they aren’t as understanding as they should be. my only issue is that they never flat out say that he’s on the autism spectrum, it’s only heavily implied or they call it “quirkiness” which is irritating, but either way i still identify with him so much and i would recommend that show to neurotypical and neurodivergent people alike.

so, about this blog reaching 5k

i am happy but i am also scared

i’m used to treating this blog as a place where i throw my opinions without a care of the world. but since this blog gets attention more and more as i go beyond making just gifs, i don’t want people to simply trust my opinions

especially those who are really new when it comes to fandom

especially those who wants to have a sense of belonging

especially those who are significantly younger than me

my opinions are my own and it should not influence yours

hi miya! when you say a sign "talks about" certain things, are there any good lists of those "things" somewhere? i've been looking, but I can't find a thorough list that makes sense, especially for aquarius, scorpio, and pisces. i've found a little about planets and houses, but most things about the signs seem to be lists of personality traits instead of topics.

Hi anon! William Lilly explains them in a simple, efficient way. I’d start there if I were you, his definitions of the signs help a lot when it comes to beginners. But I also recommend you read other Traditional Astrology authors since some might have other things to add - and even disagree with him with a few things. Oh and Horary books might help too, even if you’re not interested in the technique. Because to answer something you have to guess what sign is talking about what and all that, so those books carry a lot of information on what which sign might represent.

Another thing is, and I’ve talked about this before around here but it’s relevant for this topic: Traditional Astrology is awesome but still quite old so you have to learn to investigate certain things on your own because there just won’t be available answers all the time. A lot of guessing has to be involved, you have to understand the signs and their myths and the subjects they normally talk about… Because when a random topic that is hard to get solely based on books wildly appears you’ll have to be able to make a call on it on your own. Like having to figure out why exactly someone hates rain - Scorpio talks about mud, so maybe someone that has it somewhere in their chart will hate rain because of how it can cause said thing to happen. lol Random, but sill a valid example.

Knowing great Traditional Astrologers to ask things to helps too, so local communities can be very helpful regarding this as well. My Master Roshi used to tell me all the time how there’s no such thing as an Astrologer that works totally on their own: different views are always needed. Within Traditional, that is. And no matter how long you’ve been in the game you’ll always find out different things a certain sign could be meaning in a specific case, so. I’m saying all this for you to get that you’ll find answers in those books but only practice and loads of chart reading will truly get you used to their meanings - and there’s always more to learn, it never ends. :)

hey if you call out what’s ‘problematic’ without allowing for the possibility that you may be wrong, and aren’t willing to criticize yourself and address your own problematic behavior - you’re not a ‘woke’ savior, you’re a hypocrite and are actually feeding into a toxic circle. not everything is ‘problematic’ and that word itself is (wait for it) problematic. we need to get better about collectively doing research instead of just calling things problematic because someone else thinks that thing is. individuality is dying, and being replaced with mob mentality.

You see a sentence written in cyrillic. Some of the letters are familiar. You see the meaning shimmering underneath the surface. You almost grasp it, but it slips away. The letters on the page mock you silently.

You know this Czech word. You’ve already learnt it in Polish. It is not the same word. It is a grave insult. Your slavic friends are shocked and embarassed for you when they hear you speak it.

There is a sentence in Croatian. There is a sentence in Serbian. There is a sentence in Bosnian. They are all the same sentence.

You have to write about your day in Slovak. You spend the night polishing the draft. You fail your assigment. It’s written in Czech. You don’t know Czech.

P is not what it seems. You have to remember that.

The Croatian sentence does not mean what the Bosnian sentence means. They both mean the same in Serbian.

That word has a diminutive. The diminutive has its own diminutive. The diminutive of the diminutive also has a diminutive. Nobody knows what the final diminutive of a word is. Some say the knowledge had been lost in centuries past and matrioshkas are the echo, the tangible warning left for us to remember. No living creature should hold the means of diminishing something into nonexistence.
Others say you may still find some of them in old soviet textbooks, if you dare to look in abandoned schools of Chernobyl.

Someone is speaking to you. Is that a he or a she? You aren’t sure. It’s an abstract concept. Why does it have gender.

You see a word in a dictionary. It has seventeen letters and only one vowel. You close the dictionary very carefully not looking at the phonetic transcription. The shape of it haunts you in your sleep. You wake up face damp with tears, a bitter taste on your tongue. The clock blinks 3:03AM. You do not dare look up that word again.

This word means the same thing in the five slavic languages you’re familiar with. You use it in the sixth one. That word does not exist in this language. It never did. There is now a word-shaped void in the fabric of this language. The natives look at you uneasily. There is a new quality to the silence and your palms start to sweat.

H is not H. H is not H. H is not H. H is not H.

One day you flip through your dictionary. A page is missing. What was the word? You can’t remember. There is pressure building at the back of your head. The clock blinks 3:03AM.

You write my name is in cyrillic. There are shadows dancing on the walls. They grow longer with each letter you write down. It is not cyrillic you’re using. You keep writing my name is. The shadows now bleed from the tip of your pen. It’s irrelevant. You need to remember the right letters.

N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not… If only you could remember the letters. The letters are important. What was it, that wasn’t N?

There are nine different prefixes you can add to a verb to change its meaning. There are fifty three different suffixes you have to add to a verb to make it work. In the end the only thing left of the original is a vague shape of one of its middle consonants. You can feel the anguish radiating from the verb’s mutialted form. A desperate sob escapes through your clenched teeth. You’re so, so sorry, you didn’t meant to. You didn’t. It doesn’t matter.

You now read a text in Russian. You’ve never learnt Russian. Why are you reading that text? The words burn your eyes, the meaning searing your mind.

There’s a shot of vodka in front of you. You don’t drink alcohol. You don’t care. All existence is meaningless, your soul’s in eternal pain. A broken matrioshka lays at your feet. There is no salvation, she says boring into your eyes. You open your mouth to answer, but there is only a burst of harsh rustle. It dies in whispering echoes a moment later. Your glass is empty again.

Ravenclaws are known for their extremely dry humor, and they are almost always the ones that crack the extremely sarcastic jokes and everyone around them stops and stares at them for a moment to try and figure out if they were serious or not.

On Hiveswap

I think it’s very important that Joey was sent to Xefros and Dammek was sent to Jude.

It’s been stated a few times that Joey was bullied by the others at school and never really had any friends. She sees that same thing in Xefros- except his only friend is the Billy that hurts him. Xefros is probably Dammek’s only friend as well.

Likewise, Jude is stated to have a clique of friends that allow Joey to hang with them. Joey’s shown to even be a bit jealous of them. Jude’s success in healthy relationships, and just how supportive he is, will be important in his interactions with Dammek- showing him how friendships and healthy relationships are, and even making him realize how shitty he’s been to Xefros.

Because in the end, Dammek is a protagonist in a 10+ game. This won’t end awfully- at least, I’m hoping not. I think Xefros and Dammek’s relationship is going to be repaired, along with Jude and Joey’s.

On the flip side, the trolls are important to Jude and Joey’s development too.

Joey’s shown to be jealous of not only Jude’s friendships, but Jude’s confidence as well. She’s been partnered up with a troll who has VERY little confidence in himself, making it so that she has to be the one to step up and lead, while also helping Xefros grow to be more independent and confident. Having a friend and more confidence in herself will help amend Joey’s relationship with Jude.

Jude’s paranoia over his conspiracies is shown to get on Joey’s nerves. He may have been right this time, but this behavior can still be harmful towards Jude and his relationships with others in the future. But, if Jude’s paranoid, then I don’t even know how to describe Dammek. Dammek’s paranoia-inspired cruelty will show Jude the worst parts of his behavior, and will help him learn to trust others besides himself and his sister, letting him open himself up to reparations.


Homestuck has always dealt with dysfunctional relationships- on both sides of them, and how people’s behaviors can create these situations and obscure them. This is a new iteration of that- this will be a story of change for the better.

People who slam doors and stomp their feet to show how much they want to physically hurt you shouldn’t be trusted

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.
