the common swings

A post on splitting
  • Splitting is the term used to describe when someone with BPD’s view of something shifts from one extreme to another. For example from obsessional love to all encompassing hate. 
  • Others sometimes call it ‘swinging’ but most use that to describe mood swings specifically.
  • The term is currently considered to be specific to only those with BPD/(B)PD traits.
  • This stems from the section in the diagnostic criteria of BPD that refers to ‘black and white thinking’ or 'all or nothing’. It also links to frequent and extreme mood swings common of BPD. 
  • Splitting is regarded as a coping mechanism in regards to fear of abandonment caused by BPD. Eg 'if I hate you it won’t hurt if you leave' 
  • Those with BPD say they’ve 'split on X’ something to say when they’ve had this shift of views in regards to X thing. 
  • Those with BPD say they’re 'splitting’ to say that they are currently experiencing a shift in views. 
  • Most people use ‘split’ to describe when they shift from love to hate of something, but splitting is also accurate to describe shift from hate to love. Typically when someone with people says “I’ve split/am splitting on X” it means they currently have extreme hate/anger towards X. 
  • Someone with BPD can split on people, objects, ideas, concepts and on themselves- they can split on anything. 
  • Not all those with BPD split. 
  • Splitting is very difficult to control and very often the person isn’t aware they are splitting. 
  • Splitting can occur for many reasons, and to those without BPD the reasons can appear trivial but it’s important to remember that to those with BPD these experiences are very real and often very distressing.
Anything for Mrs Moony (Young James Potter x reader-- PLATONIC)

A/N: i haven’t posted writing in a while so here’s something i did like three months ago lol,, i don’t rlly know what to call this… like the reader is dating remus but this fic only has the reader and james in it..? idk

word count: 647
warnings: i think theres like one swear in here somewhere

You sit on the couch in the Gryffindor common room, wrapped in a blanket, belonging to your boyfriend, and sipping a warm cup of tea. It’s late. You just really couldn’t sleep, didn’t wanna be in bed. The common room door swings open behind you. You look back, confused. No one should be up at this hour. “Y/N?” Says a familiar voice, yet no one is standing there.

You furrow your brows and tilt your head slightly. “James?” You ask.

He drops his invisibility cloak and smirks. “How’d you know?”

You chuckle slightly, “Who else can just- well- be invisible? Also, you think I don’t know the sound of your voice? After how long we’ve known each other? C'mon.” You roll your eyes.

He smiles at you and begins toward the couch. “Why’re you up?” He sits down next to you.

“Full moon.” You sigh, closing your eyes and taking another sip of tea.

He places a hand on your knee. “He’s doing fine, Y/N. He’ll be back in the morning. Tonight’s transition wasn’t as bad as it has been.”

Your face drops. “Why aren’t you with him?”

“I- uh- broke an antler.. Sirius told me to head back for the night.” He rubs the back of his neck.

You chuckle. “Good going, Prongs.” You ruffle his hair.

He shakes his head. “I know my hair is shit, but that doesn’t give you the right to screw it up.” He whines and swats your hand away. He takes off his glasses and rubs his eyes, letting out a yawn. “You must be exhausted, Y/N. It’s really late.”

You nod. “I’m quite aware of the time, James. And I am exhausted. Just can’t quiet my thoughts. Never can when he’s out there.” You sigh and run a hand through your hair. He frowns at you and wraps an arm around your shoulders. “I mean, it must hurt. It’s gotta be painful a-and there’s nothing I can even do about it. I just- I love Remus, so much. I would do anything for him. I feel so useless when he’s out there. And then when he comes back all battered up- I feel horrible!” You lean your head on James’s shoulder.

“I know. It sucks. It really, really does. Just know, that without you, he wouldn’t be able to get through it.” He tells you, running his hand up and down your arm. You look at him, slightly confused. “He tells me all the time, that if he didn’t have you to come back to the next day, it wouldn’t be worth it. And I always tell him that that’s not true, no offense to you of course,” He says, making you chuckle and nod. “but, ya know, I tell him that he’s got loads of things to live for, including you. He always tells me that you’re what really makes him wanna get up in the morning.”

You can’t help a smile creeping onto your face, yet you also kind of wanna cry at the same time. “Does- Has- Has he actually told you that? Did he really say that?”

He nods. “He loves you just as much as you love him, Y/N. And I know for a fact that he wouldn’t want you staying up all night, worrying about him.” James stands up, taking your hand. “C'mon, then.”

You’re incredibly confused, but you don’t say a word as James leads you up the boy dormitory stairs. “You’re sleeping in his bed tonight.” He smiles and guides you down. “You’ll sleep better. Then, when he comes back in the morning, you’ll be right here waiting for him.” He boops your nose and brings Remus’s covers up to your chin. “Goodnight, Y/N.”

“Night, Prongs.” You wait a moment until you know he’s in his bed. “Thank you.”

“Of course. Anything for Mrs. Moony.”


WEREFOX HEADCANONS (not to be confused with a kitsune):

  • There is no hierarchy in foxes; therefore their eye color remains the same. There is no Alpha, no Beta, and no Omega. This also means the strand of it, as a shift and were, is easily passable. Any fox could do it with a single bite. But they stand out amongst regular foxes, with irregular markings that have made them plain and visible to hunters for years. Some would aliken their appearance to a domesticated fox, and get away with it. But there’s always something too human.

  • While foxes are indeed hunters of small game, their strength for scavenging is great. They rarely feel bloodlust. They’re not driven on that primal hunting need like wolves. But do not confuse that with them being docile. 

  • Mood-swings are common factors for accidental shifts. Great moments of emotion will let down any guard and allow any creature to come through. Frustration and anger are the strongest weak spots. 

  • Full shifts (i.e a transformation into a live fox) are made possible by anyone. Grand incidents can occur in which case someone in a fit of an overwhelming emotion can take its form, even in the middle of a conversation that will give you no moment to explain the occurrence of events to someone, as they’re too busy WTFing in the opposite direction via running.

  • They do not coexist in packs, but they do consist of large family units. 

The chocobros when their S/O are on their period

This may be too much info, but mother nature is currently being evil to moi, so I thought ‘oh my wordy word, how would the chocobros act?’ This is where we are now.

Requests are always welcome :)

Please enjoy.

As an extra note, I decided to write different things for each that isn’t the ‘i’m in pain’ i see everywhere. Not everyone gets Period pains (I only got them two weeks before for about 2 mins but not during) so I thought I should add diversity.

Also, like always, I do apologise if any of them are out of character

At first, he was a little…uncertain about what to do since everyone acted differently. He only had Iris to go by but he was never paying attention. At least, not a lot. So he went along with the 'just be yourself’ approach. It had been a day since yours had started and, so far, everything was okay. You would wince every now and then if you moved a little weirdly. Nothing serious.

But… when the worst happened, it wasn’t exactly at the most appropriate time or place. In a cold dungeon whilst fighting deamons.

Gladio had rushed to your side before the hobgoblin had managed to reach you. “Having a nap down there, ____?”

The pained grumble that escaped you did nothing to ease his worries. “I wish….”

He laughed in order to hide his concern, swinging the Hardedge at the creature. It only dodged, which annoyed him considerably. He glared, the deamon staring back. Before he had a chance to swing again, the goblin fell forward to reveal an Ignis and a Noctis standing back to back.

“How is it so hard to lose such a big guy, Specs?”

“It’s highly possibly that you pointed us in the wrong direction.”

Gladio chuckled as he knelt down beside you, sword now returned to…where it goes, where his attention now lied. “You okay?”

“Unhurt from the battle? Yes. But mother nature certainly has her ways to inflict critical damage. It feel more like instant death, though.”

At this point he was worried, though he couldn’t help but smile. “Then we’ll just have to use a Phoenix down.” He picked you up with ease.

“That sounds great.”

~~~ 💕 ~~~

When camp was eventually set up, Gladio made you his priority. He’d happily let you curl up to him, laughing softly when you lifted his free arm up so you could use him as your pillow whilst he held you close. His would be reading his favourite book - or one of them - whilst he would play with the ends of your hair.



“Sorry for what happened in the dungeon.”

He look at you and close his book. Gladio wasn’t surprised by your apology, though it wasn’t needed. You couldn’t help your sudden cramps. So he led down, using his jacket as his pillow, and pulled you onto his chest. “Next time, bring the period pain relief with you.”  And he kissed your forehead tentatively.

“Iggy…” Prompto looked at Ignis, whose eyes were focused on the road. “____’s being moody again….”

“Mother Nature deems it so, Prompto.”

Prompto pouted and crossed his arms. “C’mon, dude. Why is she not talking to me today?”

Gladio laughed heartily, which only caused to Prompto to pout even more. “Mood swings is common when women hit that time of month. The only exception being his royal highness, who always has mood swings.”

“In other words, ___ is on her period.”

Prompto blushed deeply. He didn’t know why, maybe it’s because he had thought that he’d done something terrible to upset you - like talking about chocobos whenever he could - or, even worse,  you may have stopped…loving him.

So finding out that you were just on your period didn’t only bring relief to his mind, but it also embarrassed him. To know that he overthought it all… who wouldn’t feel embarrassed about that, right? 

“But she still talks to you guys…”

“Not exactly. Only a few words here and there.” Ignis briefly stopped the car at a junction, looking left then right before starting up again.

Prompto furrowed his brows, determined to change that. “Is there anything I can do to make it easier?”

~~~ 💕 ~~~

At camp, he showered brought you into a hug and threw a blanket around the both  you. Ignis had warned him that you may not enjoy it, but, what he did realise was that you were attracted to his warmth at camp whenever mother nature was being particularly cruel to you. He guessed he was like your hot water bottle.

Prompto showered you face with butterfly kisses, reminding you that you were always in his thoughts. He rubbed your noses together gently, making you laugh softly. He grinned.

“Are you okay now? Your pains aren’t too…ouchie are they?”

You smiled and gently played with his hair with one hand, the other on his hip. “Better now thanks to you.”

Prompto’s grin widened and he pecked your lips. “Even if they haven’t got any better, at least I made you smile.” He nuzzled his cheek against yours, which only made you laugh louder. When you grimaced and groaned in pain again, he stopped and went in a bit of a panic mode.

“Ig- ow…” He rubbed his head and picked up whatever it is that was thrown at him. 

“Make sure she takes them. Unlike what you get at the store, these are herbal and may help her a little more. Also tell her to have more Vitamin B12 to help her hormonal balance.”

Prompto looked at you, only to find you clinging to him like he was you teddy bear. “Princess, Iggy said you need to take these.”

“Do it yourself.”

“But I don’t get periods like you - “

“Just feed one to me goddamn it!”

And so he did.

“I’ve got it”

“Got what, Iggy?”

“I’ve come up with a new recipe!”

“Can’t wait to try it.”

Ignis jotted down the recipe in his book once you all got into the car. He didn’t trust Noctis driving, but he insisted on it since it was only a short distance from Tabby’s Tackle Shack and he needed more supplies. So Ignis, with a sigh and internal screaming, agreed.

Whilst he was waiting for Noct to return, he focused on you. Although you had not told him you were suffering from extreme period pains, he knew you were. Not only were you harder to wake up than Noctis, or practically begging to stay in the car, you also had a high temperature. It wasn’t anything abnormal, most women did have a temperature rise, but yours was significant and he could feel it radiating from you. 

He also noticed how you would lean a little closer to him when you were walking and how you would rest your head on his shoulder for a few moments.
He hoped this new recipe would help you a little, at least with your temperature.

As of currently, you had decided to put your head on his lap. It was most unusual for you to do so, though he remained calm. He put his book and pen back into his inside pocket and took the back of his hand to your forehead. 

It was no wonder why you had taking a liking to his lap as your pillow today. You were extremely warm. He held back a sigh.

“Where’d ___ go?”

“Dying on Iggy’s lap  right now…” You curled up into a ball. “Do we have any ice packs?”

The three boys who had just returned rushed to the boot to look through everything within, arguing with each other over who hit who by accident. Ignis was internally screaming by now and was only grateful when Noct chucked the ice pack in his direction. Ignis caught it expertly and pressed it against your forehead until you held it in place whilst you rolled onto your back.

The recipe better work.

~~~ 💕 ~~~

“Woohoo! Ice cream!”

Whilst the three boys started eating, Ignis passed you your own bowl of ice-cream. It wasn’t the healthiest of foods, but you didn’t have an appetite for anything big and you found it hard to sleep at night. 

When you took  it, you looked at him questioningly.

“Thought it would help your temperature so you could sleep well tonight.” He answered your unsaid question as he took his own meal. “Have you taken anything for the pain?”

You nodded. “Yeah. Don’t know how long it’ll last.”

Ignis looked at you gently. “As long as it offers something. In the morning you can take some vitamins to help with your iron levels. Should help you stay awake. Should you feel like you can’t go on, we won’t be mad if you let us know.”

You nodded. “Thanks, Iggy” As you ate, you leaned into him slightly. “This is pretty good. How’d you do it?”

“The old salt, cream, extract and ice method.”

“Mixed or shook?”


“The great Ignis cheated?”

He smiled ever so slightly. “Cheating is necessary on the odd occasion.”

You kissed his cheek. “Thanks again.”

To say he was surprised was an over statement. From what he knew from school, a lot of girls felt embarrassed to tell anyone but their friends if they were on their period. But not you. As per usual, you were awake before him. Only, you had practically thrown yourself over him and said, ‘if I cuddle people more than usual, it’s because I’m on my period.”

Because you were so open about it, he had been thrown off guard. “Uh, okay?” 

He didn’t mind extra cuddles, of course. But, uh…you were more for using Gladio as your pillow that day. And that made the young prince a little … confused and somewhat jealous. Gadio’s teasing didn’t help either. But it did mean that he could sit on the back of the Regalia without getting - 

“Noct, I suggest you sit down on the chair before you fall off.”

“Specs, I’ll be careful.”

“Need I remind you what happened last time?”

Of course Ignis meant that time when he had to suddenly stop the car and Noctis ended up with a swollen cheek bone from falling forward, and that time when a gust of wind blew him backwards and onto the road. He had to call Prompto and explain the situation… to say he became laughing stok for many weeks was an understatement.

“Okay. I get it.” Noctis sat back down on his seat in a huff. He pouted and looked out at the beautiful scenery. He wished his father could see all of this with him. Hell, that would probably make this journey a lot more fun. And safe. 

He stretched and yawned. “I need a nap.”  He leaned to the side until his head was on your shoulder, wrapping his arms tightly around you. As an added bonus, Gladio didn’t mind the extra weight on his lower thigh. He kept his nose in his book.

Noctis had something planned. Chocobos always brought you two closer together. Being the competitive duo you were, he knew you’d be asking for a race even if you were on your period.

~~~ 💕 ~~~

Camp was far more relaxed now. The chocobos were with you and his chocobo was the perfect pillow. You were beside him, cuddling him. The only tell tale sign that you were on your period was the extra cuddling. There was always the odd scare a few days or weeks before, when you’d just have that sudden cramp for a couple of minutes, sometimes half an hour. But during, you never really had mood swings. Just extra tired. 

Like right now, you were yawning into his chest every few minutes. He had to grin sometimes, finding it a little ticklish at times. The chocobo decided to join in, rubbing it’s head along Noct’s leg, saying kweh in amusement as he chuckled. 

You didn’t help either, tickling his sides. He laughed even more and eventually took your hands, weaving his fingers with yours. The chocobo cuddled it’s head against him, too, falling to sleep easily.

“____, why do you sleep on Gladio more than me in the Regalia?”

You smiled sleepily. “Last time you elbowed me in the face.”

“Huh? I…I did? When? Why didn’t you tell me?”

“Because you looked too cute with that ikkle smile on your bootiful face” You pinched his cheek as you grinned. He bushed and moved your hand from his face to capture your lips.

“Stop teasing me. I can do a lot worse.”

“Oh yeah? Like what?”

“Stop you from sleeping.”

“Don’t you dare, highness.” You poked his cheek. “I need sleep so I have energy for tomorrow. I ain’t gonna get any energy if you don’t let me sleep.”

“Have iron supplements then!” Ignis’ voice sounded a little distant from where you both were.

Noctis laughed as you replied. “Good luck with that.” You yawned once again and Noctis held you closer.

“Rest up.” He kissed your forehead softly. And then you decided, once again, that the chocobo was better. Leaving him to pout in jealousy over his favourite pet.

Am I the only INTP that has "personality swings" around other people? Especially during conversation. I'll like retreat into zombie mode until someone says something that perks my interest, and then I'm all animated and talkative, but if the Thing ends up not being interesting/I'm not received well/I get bored, I can retreat into zombie mode just as quickly. It's like a light switch.

No, I’d say that’s quite common amongst INTPs. Those swings are characteristic of people with high Ne: we are stimulated by new, interesting ideas, but we get bored easily as well. As INTPs, we also need intelectual stimulation (due to dominant Ti), so if a conversation doesn’t provide that, we will zone out (because our inferior function is Fe, we usually don’t feel the need to keep up with the conversation and will retreat into our own thoughts).

Night Like No Other- Hernst College AU

              It happened so quickly, Hanschen wasn’t really sure how to handle it. It was difficult, to say the least, for him to comprehend when someone else was struggling- and even more difficult for him to handle it in an effective way. So really, there was no way for him to understand what was happening when his boyfriend of three months, Ernst Robel, started acting the way he did one night.

Is it weird/uncommon that I have some extreme moodswings? Sometimes I'm proud of myself so much that I start acting like a narcissist but then suddenly at my highest point I start to sabotage myself and humiliate myself and I feel like I'm bad at everything. (I have ADHD and Bpd) *sorry for weird english* And I hope I'm not bothering you ><

NO NO, you are deff not bothering me.

so with BPD, its EXTREME moods. you can be very happy one minute, then feel the wrath of Satan the next minute.. so since you do have BPD, it is very very common to have mood swings. 

now self sabotage/ narcissist-   most BPD people have a bad image of themselves. BUT they can be very manipulative towards other people.

Marauders Imagine - Transformation (Part 1)

Can you write one where you are friends the the marauders but you don’t know about Remus being a werewolf but you sneak out in the middle of the night on a full moon and you see like Sirius and James in their animagus form, you follow them in to the Forbidden forest. They noticed you and kinda trying to scare you back to the castle so you wont be hurt, but in someway you get and wake up in the hospital wing?  - requested by anon

Hope you like it!  I really enjoyed this prompt!  I tried to make it as true to the book as possible, but I’ve forgotten some of the details, so I’m sorry if it isn’t 100% accurate.

There will be a second part (because this got really long), but I probably won’t post tomorrow because it is my school’s prom (which I am pretty excited for).  But yeah - sorry about that.  Also if you want you should message me because I’m super bored. :)

     I frowned at the three of my four best friends sitting at the breakfast table across from me.  James Potter wasn’t his usual, sarcastic self and he hadn’t made one comment about Lily Evans.  Sirius Black looked like he hadn’t slept in a week.  Peter Pettigrew was dozing off into his cereal.

     Remus Lupin was in the hospital wing.

     James, Sirius, and Peter told me he was sick.  That’s what they said once every month, because once a month, every month, I went downstairs to have breakfast with three sleep deprived zombies.  At first I believed them when they told me about Remus’ “rare disease,” but after our fifth year together, I was starting to get some doubts.  So, I formulated a plan.

     Next month, I would find out once and for all what was going on with them.

xxx - The Night of the Full Moon, One Month Later - xxx

     I sat in the Gryffindor common room, close to the fire.  It was a chilly evening and I was tired, but I wasn’t planning on going to bed anytime soon.  I was waiting to see what my friends would do.

     Almost on cue, the four of them walked down the stairs from the boys’ dormitories.  Aside from Remus looking a bit sweaty and uncomfortable, they all looked the same as normal.  Peter waved at me as they passed by, and James called out, “Are you actually studying, y/n?  I can’t believe it!  You must be ill!”

     I rolled my eyes and turned back to the charms textbook which lay open on the table in front of me.  As soon as I heard the door to the common room swing closed, I grabbed my striped scarf and wand out of my bag, and then leaped up to follow them.

     I followed the sound of their boyish banter down the halls but stopped when I realized that they were going outside.  All around Hogwarts is a stretch of mostly bare land until the Forbidden Forest begins, and if I followed, they would definitely see me.

     I pressed my face up to the cold windowpane and tried to see what was going on.  The four boys walked straight away from the castle, and entered the woods.  It was only a few seconds until the light coming from their wands began to fade.

     I gulped.  The Forbidden Forest had always terrified me, ever since my first year when the boys and I had gotten a detention together.  I spent most of the night trembling in fear and clinging on to their sleeves, and when we returned, I couldn’t sleep for weeks.  But I was determined to know what was going on.  I took a deep breath and hurried after them.

     As I entered the forest, I couldn’t help but shudder.  The air was colder here, and it was much darker.  I took a deep breath, watched my breath frost in the air around me, and took out my wand.  I whispered under my breath, “Lumos.”

     The tip of my wand glowed brightly, providing me with some light, but the shadows cast by the trees only made things creepier.

     I listened carefully, and was able to make out Sirius’ voice.  It sounded like he was whining, as usual.  I smirked as I headed in the direction of the sound.

     The forest seemed like a living, breathing creature around me.  No matter what I did, I could feel eyes on me, and sometimes there were horrifying noises coming from deep within the woods.  Once, I thought I was lost, and almost panicked, but after a few moments, I could make out a few words in James’ voice.”

     “Don’t worry … bit  … almost there.”

     I hurried after them and finally caught up.  I could see the four boys and the edge of the woods.  It appeared as though we had made our way around the castle and to the Whomping Willow.

     As they moved out of the trees and into the light, I could see them better.  Remus looked much worse than before.  Sirius was practically carrying him, and he was deathly pale.

     They made their way towards the tree, and after tossing a carefully aimed pebble, the tree stopped its usual whipping motions.  James crawled under the branches first, then Sirius and Remus, and finally, Peter.  They made their way to the trunk and disappeared into a hole.

     I crept forward and tried the same thing, but as soon as I was under the Willow’s branches, it began thrashing about more violently than ever!  I pressed myself against the ground as I felt sharp branches scratch my back and tangle in my hair.  There was no going back now - I didn’t have a choice.  I crawled forward army-style, as quickly as possible, to the center of the tree.  I spotted the opening and found myself in a long, dark tunnel.

     I took a deep breath, and started down.  I had to crawl, and I felt the walls pressing in around me.  After what felt like miles and miles of suffocating darkness, I began to hear the boys talking in hushed tones.

     “Peter, you should … away.  Too dangerous.”

     “No … not going to leave you.”

     As I crawled closer, I was able to make out full sentences.

     “It’s almost time.  Sirius, are you ready?”  James asked.


     I finally reached the end, just in time to see something quite shocking.  The tunnel ended in some creepy looking room.  I tried to stay back so the boys wouldn’t notice me, but from my vantage point, I could see Sirius as he transformed.

     I covered my mouth as he shrunk and grew fur.  I had to close my eyes as his bones rearranged themselves, but in a matter of moments, Sirius was a big, black dog.

     A big, black dog who could evidently smell me, as he started barking angrily at the tunnel.  The dog climbed into the tunnel towards me, and I tried to back up, but the space was so tight that it was almost impossible.

     I felt teeth close around my robe, and I was being pulled forward.  I scratched desperately at the walls around me, trying to get a hold on something, but Sirius - the dog - dragged me into the room, where I found myself surrounded by James, Peter, and a very ill-looking Remus.

     They all stared at me angrily as dog-Sirius transformed back into human-Sirius.

     “y/n,” Remus growled in a strange voice that sounded very unlike him, “Leave.  Now.”

     He winced, as if he were in extreme pain.  “No,” I replied nervously, “I want to help you.”

     Sirius laughed sharply.  “You can’t help him if he kills you.”

     “Remus would never hurt me.”

     Peter gently touched my shoulder.  “y/n, come on.  I think we should leave.”

     “What’s going on?” I asked, my voice raising slightly higher in pitch.

     Remus’ entire body jerked and he fell to the ground.  James stared at Peter and said, “Get her out of here.  Now!”

     Peter grabbed my hand.  I almost tried to resist as he pulled me to my feet and dragged me out of the room, but his expression and the way the rest of the boys were acting was scaring me.  The last thing I saw was both James and Sirius in animal form.  James had turned into a giant stag and Sirius had returned to his dog form.  They stood over Remus as he convulsed on the floor.

     I heard Remus scream, and then Peter began running.  I hurried after him, but as we got outside the building, I stopped.  Peter halted too, then looked at me with true horror in his eyes.  “y/n, we have to go!”

     I took a deep breath and tried to ignore the tears welling up in my eyes.  “I’m not leaving until you tell me what is going on.  You guys are scaring me.”

     Peter glared at me, then spat out, “Remus is transforming.  He’s a werewolf.  He’s a werewolf, and he’s going to kill us unless we get away from here, fast.  James and Sirius can’t hold him forever!”

     I felt my heart stop as I heard a long howl coming from inside the building.
