that i ate

can I just say that, as a muslim, you guys really don’t need to tag food pics with “#nsfr”!! I mean I really appreciate the thoughtful gesture, but we’re supposed to be fasting and getting on with our daily lives, only of course spending more time this month praying and focusing on our spirituality. we see food everywhere: on the internet and tv; we see people at school/work/outside eating all the time, and even at home if we have children or younger siblings or family members who can’t fast because of medical conditions. seeing food/water doesn’t break our fasts, nor does it make us mad with envy. we don’t need special treatment! this is a test for us, for us to control our base desires and discipline ourselves so that we can focus on what’s more important, whilst empathising with those less fortunate than us. at the end of the day (pun intended), what’s 19 hours of hunger and thirst, really? nothing to complain about. at least we know for sure that we’ll have food and water to break our fasts with. some people don’t even have that. 

so yeah, it’s really not necessary! if a muslim is that sensitive, then they’ll probably have “#food” blacklisted, or won’t use tumblr at all. if you feel uncomfortable eating in front of a fasting muslim in person, that’s different: probably ask them if it’s ok. most won’t mind, some might, but you can sort that out between yourselves. I don’t know what it’s like for other people, but I don’t personally feel particularly hungry or thirsty even when I fast in summer: the worst I’ll get is a light headache. it’s not the kind of intense hunger you feel before dinner: it’s more of a light drawn out yet cleansing feeling, and the knowledge that you’re doing it for a reason helps too. all in all, don’t worry about us! we’re ok! but thanks for the thought <3

hello human bean! i know you're not feeling that great right now, and i'm not too sure when it will get better, but i know that you are important and i need you to know that. i wish i could make you feel better. you deserve all good days

thank you so much, anon. ily 💛

@missbeckywrites: All the damn time

<3 And here I am, thinking that you absolutely should not because you are an amazing writer and I love your work and how could someone so talented feel that way??

@violyntfemme: Omg I care so much you don’t even know, same goes for you @missbeckywrites​

My friend, what have I done to deserve you *hugs*

@alethiaii: Why do you have to call me out like that?

Isn’t it clear by now that when I suffer, you must as well?

@illgouri: every time i write anything lmao

I feel you, fam. Trying to figure out why I keep coming back when every time I just want to burn everything.

@potentiality-26: far too often, sadly

As bad as it sounds, it’s comforting to know that writers I admire so much struggle just the same.

@arlessiar: Doesn’t everyone at some point? *hugs* I know the feeling. It’s hard sometimes. Then I remind myself that I’m first and foremost writing for myself. Because I enjoy it, because I love to make these thoughts come alive in words. And other people reading and liking it is a bonus. Telling myself this doesn’t always work, but often. :) And you shouldn’t worry - you’re a great writer and many people enjoy reading your stories, me included. Your writing is excellent!

<33 I do try to remind myself that I am writing for me but, man, when you put your heart and soul into something, you just hope desperately someone out there loves it and at the same time you think it never will. And thank you, so much. It really does make my day when people say they enjoy my fic, even if I act like a sad goober most of the time.

@annaofaza: (Raises hand)

*gently pushes your hand down* Sorry, you’re not allowed to think your writing is bad. I refuse. Because it is not.

@thenerdyindividual: Honestly I do it all the time

And you, too! Stop! Don’t listen to my hypocritical ways! Believe in yourself!!! I just want my friends to know they are talented (but don’t look at me tho)

  • me: maybe i'm not actually THAT unstable?? maybe i'm just making it up??
  • also me: *cries for 15 minutes bc my family ate some of my food*

Things that fucked me up in The Foxhole Court series (warning: spoilers):

  • Every single time Andrew did something just because Neil asked
  • “He pressed Andrew’s palm to the ugly scarring across Neil’s abdomen” 
  • Dan’s entire existence as the biggest boss in the galaxy
  • “You are a pipe dream.”
  • “I am not a pipe dream.  I’m not going anywhere.”
  • Renee saving Jean
  • Renee doing literally anything
  • Wymack hating that Neil flinches away from him and doing everything he can to prove he’s the good male role model Neil deserves???
  • RESPONSIBLE AND CARING ADULTS
  • “You hate me, remember?” “Every inch of you,” Andrew said.  “That doesn’t mean I wouldn’t blow you.” ANDREW LMAO
  • SHOWER BLOW JOB/CODDLING/ANDREW FINALLY LETTING GO ENOUGH TO LET NEIL SEE HIM FEEL PLEASURE (partly because he can’t bear to leave Neil’s side to take care of it alone FUCK)
  • “Yes or no?”
  • VIGOROUS CONSENT and Andreil knowing each other well enough to tell when the other isn’t in a good enough place to consent even when they think they are??
  • Neil calling Andrew a “drama queen” behind his back
  • Nicky getting the happiness he deserves in Erik
  • “Who’s humanizing who in that relationship, anyway?” NICKY OMFG
  • Andrew needing to map every single scar/wound on Neil’s body and Neil letting him
  • Andrew saying “I told you not to look at me like that” after Neil stares at him with fucking giant anime heart eyes when the sunlight hits his hair
  • Matt and his spikey hair (/everything)
  • Casual 3 hour bus chats where Andreil loses track of time smh
  • How fucking short Andreil is???  5 foot **nothing*** is right
  • Neil saying he wants a vacation and Andrew almost cutting Kevin’s dick off when he tries to get in the way of it
  • BED SHARING IN THE CABIN ffs
  • Honestly that whole woodland retreat with team bonding took me the fuck out
  • “The only one I’m interested in is you.”  Demi!Neil is watering every crop in my field??
  • “Thank you.  You were amazing.”  (aka me @ Nora Sakavic)
