People with popular blogs are still people. They have lives outside of Tumblr. They will get busy or stressed sometimes and not have the ability/time to answer messages and/or asks. Do not guilt them for not immediately answering you. They’re people just like you. You are not obligated to their attention.
So someone messaged me to ‘take down’ a post I’d reblogged and said it was “weird I was 4 years back into their archive”… I wasn’t in their archive. I had simply done a search for a funny imgur post, and their post came up. They messaged me, very curtly, to remove it and explained why… After hearing why, I understand, however, if this video poses such a threat, why is it still viewable and rebloggable by the general public? This seems like a thing that should have been taken down ages ago.
There seems to be an ongoing pattern of behavior here that’s worrisome. People are holding complete strangers responsible for every trauma that has happened to them. There’s no way we all can read each other’s minds and pasts. Most of us are just here for fandom, jokes, cats, and general escapism. Hell, we all have our own traumas, every last one of us. If someone misunderstands a post you made, or reblogs a photo or video that brings bad memories for you, we have literally no idea. You can either continue to message people (in not so nice ways) to alert them to your discomfort, or you can simply remove the thing, block it, blacklist it, etc. That ensures your well being a lot more than continuing to expect everyone else to simply ‘know’ about your pain.
We can’t hold everyone else responsible for our own troubles, memories, traumas, etc. Take your own well being into your hands as much as possible, as really that’s the strongest defense you have. The rest of us might be willing to help, but it’s not a burden that should be forced onto us without us even knowing.
tbh feminists who have never done any form of sex work dont need to be talking about it. obviously i am pro-sex work & porn industry, but if someone who has been in the industry has an anti-sex work/porn industry perspective, i’ll absolutely listen to it. but if you’ve never been a sex worker of any kind and you’re going to tell me about the evils of sex work……….. don’t. it’s 100% not ur place
ive never heard of this build bodyswap theory it sounds cool, would u mind explaining?
ooh ok! so the concept is that katsuragi takumi, rather than being dead, actually somehow… implanted his own consciousness into another person’s body: that person being sento. the “job offer” that both sato taro & ryuga answered was actually just katsuragi trying to lure someone in in order to steal their physical form. (the “why” is still pretty up in the air atm, but i guess that’s just how it is with villainous types.)
except presumably, something went wrong in the process?
and he ended up losing his memories after swapping bodies, and now he’s been without them for so long that he (now sento) has developed an entirely new personality.
this would explain how sento is an innate scientific genius, despite not showing any signs of having those skills as sato taro.
and it would explain sento’s clothes when he was first found by soichi (obviously very different from the usual faust prisoner garb), which look remarkably like the outfit katsuragi’s “corpse” was wearing in ryuga’s flashback:
does your environmental science work ever influence your writing? 🤔
You know the funny thing is, I started working on Star Stuff, and thus the series of my current wip, back when I was a biochem major, not an environmental science major. But after I changed my mind and my major, I decided that for my senior honors project, I was going to write an environmentally based novel.
And I did. I wrote an entire draft. But after it was all over, I hated it. I pushed it aside to work on my current wip, but I kept the idea, poking and prodding at it every once in a while. And that idea has evolved into the current form of Echoes of Earth, which will be an environmentally based, post-apocalyptic fantasy story (a mouthful, really). I’m excited to write it and I feel like it’s something I really need to write, but right now I am so focused on finishing Star Glow that I can’t get sidetracked.
In the Star universe, there’s not a lot of room to fit environmental stuff in- since Earth has very little to do with the story. But I am trying to fit at least a background sense of alien cultures that do respect the natural world- or don’t, and make sure that it’s obvious that’s bad.
This has been a long answer to your question (I like being long-winded a lot of times if you can’t tell). The short answer is yes, it does! And will even more as I get into other stories that focus on that more than my current project does. Once I finally finish a complete draft of Star Glow, Echoes of Earth is the next thing on my list.
