I really like the image of Vader rolling Luke’s name around in his head, saying it out loud to himself, testing it, hearing it.
Luke. Luke Skywalker. My son’s name is Luke.
Practicing different ways to say it. Maybe he tries it out in all of his different, typical Vader tones. You know, in the way he addresses Imperial Officers or Rebel Prisoners or even the Emporer. None of them probably sound right.
Saying it quietly, in a gentle voice. It’s unfamiliar and maybe uncomfortable because he hasn’t been gentle in years but it’d sound right and good.
I like the idea that there’s a build-up for Vader to that first moment. That the moment when he is looking at his son and calls him by his name for the first time, that it would be this important moment for him. One that he has thought a lot about and prepared for.
And that every time he says it is precious. That he just keeps trying to get it right because this is his son and his name is Luke.
Hey remember this ep?! It’s episode 47 of Advanced Generation, in which May meets and captures a Skitty!
So the story goes like this: May finds a wild, ill Skitty and brings it to a nearby therapy center, where the little ball of sunshine quickly regains its strength and soon starts jumping around, taking interest in anything that moves and rustles like the kitty it is.
Then Ash, curious about its behavior, walks up to Skitty, pulls out a cat toy OUT OF NOWHERE and plays with it for a while.
The toy clearly doesn’t belong to the therapist, since you see it nowhere in the room where they’re staying (and anyway, you don’t just take and use other people’s things without asking).
So either Ash discovered his crafty side and made one within lightning speed (which would be hilarious in itself), or he had it with him, which is more likely. Ash, who’s never once owned a kitten-like Pokémon, carries cat toys around. I mean, that thing clearly has no other purpose. It’s not some household item.
So tl;dr headcanon: Ash carries random toys around for no other purpose than to play with Pokémon he meets during his journey.
Life as an emergency medicine intern can be pretty hectic, but having the right tools in your armamentarium can make things that much easier.
Here are some of the things I carry around on a day to day basis in the emergency department plus a few extras:
Personally I carry the Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope. It has served me well for about 4 years now. I think it has one of the best acoustic qualities for those not going into Cardiology. Plus it comes in black!
Stethoscope Hip Clip
White coats get dirty in he emergency department, I stick to just my scrubs mostly. I give my neck a break from hanging my stethoscope around it and clip it to my scrubs pants. Your future orthopedic surgeon thanks you.
Tarascon Adult Emergency Medicine Pocketbook
This book has saved my butt multiple times, especially as a 4th year medical student on Sub-Internship rotations. Faster than opening up your phone and waiting for your WikiEM app to update. Just flip to the back,f ind what your are looking for and BAM! It is especially useful on international rotations when you don’t have internet or data service to spare.
I think pens with LED lights are less harsh on the patients’ eyes. These pens are still very bright so don’t directly shine them into the patients’ eyes just near them, unless you’re a jerk doctor.
Sanford Guide to Antimicrobial Therapy
A great deal of emergency department patients are discharged or admitted on antibiotic therapy. This helps you decide which drug for which bug without having to guess or remember back to your microbiology block. What if it is male with a UTI not a female? Or a kid with pneumonia? What common bugs need what drugs? This book helps a lot. Warning: paper cuts.
Most trauma patients need their clothes removed. Those who are bleeding out and time is on the essence, whip out these babies and cut through almost anything. Be careful before they cut your dreams.
Hey, any advice on how to calm down? Im about to have a panic attack. Please help.
First step, try to breathe more deeply. It sucks and it’s hard when you’re panicking, but breathing deeper will help you. Try to find 5 things you can see. The identify 4 things you can hear. What are three things that you can feel? Can you identify two smells?
I often carry around a card with things to do in case I have a panic attack. I have calming exercises, reminders of people I can text, and websites I can go to. To get some ideas for what to put on a card (or as a reminder in your phone), check these out:
Help Guide A site containing articles to help understand, help numbers, “tool kits”, and self help.
Headcanons for Deku, Kacchan, Shouto (separately) who goes to a restaurant and gains a crush on a busboy? Like I have a job as one rn atm and man it's so laborious. We have to carry a tray in one hand and a pitcher of water in the other. After my first day of work, I already had so many bruises from carrying things around for my 7 hr shift. ^^'
I did that also for a week, amazing that you’re able to pull that off every day!
Is so impressed, his eyes start to sparkle when he watches you carry all that stuff.
Can’t take his eyes off you, is more than just amazed.
Keeps thinking about you, so he visits your workplace quite often.
After a few weeks he finally realized he developed a crush on you, high key embarrassed when he talks to you.
When he’s able to gather all his courage he will ask you out on a date, lots of stuttering, but really adorable he even brought you a rose.
He is struggling with himself, wants to glance at you from time to time, but he looks at you with a stern gaze.
Blushes when you come to his table, doesn’t really know why, because he has just met you? How is this possible?
If he finally gets that he has gained a crush, he is quick with his actions.
When your eyes met he would give you seductive smirks.
If you returned them, he would take that as an invitation to ask you if you want to grab something to eat or a drink.
Is probably the coolest with the whole situation. (Pun not intended)
Sends precious smiles to you occasionally, gets flustered when you give him one of yours.
Comes more by often just to see your beautiful face, he notices that you get happy when you see him coming in.
Tries to flirt with you by admiring the way you manage to carry all plates in one hand.
Asks you out too, because he knows there is something between you, some kind of attraction.
