things i just watched

I submitted a student a while back, the one with gold in her eyes whose family joked that she wasn't human. She's back! (I am sorry for taking liberties, it's just that I love this whole thing.)

They watch her in horror.

She does not wear iron (Her mother’s stories and beliefs were right, it seems. Iron hurts her in a way she does not want to explain.) and the rules her sister taught her all seem to cause her more trouble than it’s worth. Salt damages her hands, makes her bleed and sore, and so she goes without.

She does not carry the protections that the others do and seeing someone so easily disregard the safety measures makes them nervous. She walks in places they are terrified of, alone and unharmed, and no one wants to question why. The gold in her eyes flashes in the darkness and she carries a book in her arms. Pages and pages of drawings, of things seen in her dreams and a world she knows more intimately than her own.

(Her mother still writes her letters, but they treat her as if she never held any power over her.)

(It would seem that the jokes were truths and never something to be laughed at.)

Her golden rings, worn in her eyes, expand until the blue is all but gone. The effect is striking and some believe her to have been replaced but she is the same as she ever was. There was no replacement for her, no sweet words luring her off into Their world.

Her world.

She is stuck between the two and being as odd as she is does her no favors. Too much humanity in her spirit to be right as a Them, too much Other to belong to humans. Trapped in between, this is where she belongs.

(One day, far into the future, she will be faculty and no one will ever tear her from Elsewhere. This is her home now, and she will remain.)

One girl watches her, eyes pinned on her hands as she draws, and she sighs. An audience is not what she wanted. Everyone chooses how to react to her, of course, but she wishes that some would choose to ignore, like everyone else.

The girl approaches her and she looks up, meeting eyes similar to her own, cat pupils and orange. “You have a wonderful talent,” the girl says softly. She recognizes her now, realizes that she looks like someone who isn’t there anymore.

One of Them, one who wanted to be in the world for a while.

“You praise my talents,” she says quietly. Never say Thank You, the rules echo in her head. She wonders if the rules apply to someone who has always belonged.

Both of them grin, two sets of teeth too sharp for humans.

They are never seen apart again.

(Stories will be told of them, to be sure, but they will always be phrased as, ‘Did you meet the professor’s wife yet?’)

So, based on that sneak peak, I'm asuming that Henry knows Hook's crew. Maybe... Hook took him to hang out with them? At the rabbit hole? Under the promise that his mothers must never know? Maybe they call him "the Captain's boy" now? And they teach him everything about ships (and other things, you know. Violet will apreciate that. Emma and Regina not so much)... Can someone please write it? Please???

Well… I think if Hook took 13-year-old Henry to hang out at the Rabbit Hole, to be taught sea shanties with naughty lyrics and how to do shots and how to “know his way around women” by a bunch of pirates, it’d be a race whether Regina or Emma flayed him alive first.

Besides, his crew isn’t around. They weren’t on his ship when he got it back and we haven’t seen them in ages. They’re probably holed up in the pub, mumbling about how Hook’s neglecting them to make time with his girlfriend, the traitor. That’s why there was no serenade on the Jolly Roger. Killian asked them to, but they all said, screw you cap’n, you haven’t bothered with us in like two seasons, serenade the lady yourself you faithless bastard.

it’s almost 9pm here aND OHH BOY WAS TODAY A LONG DAY

I'm self dx BPD and I'm struggling to cope is there any way you can help md

the first thing I try to do is make myself a plan. you have to think of yourself as a small child that you have to take care of. if you feel yourself doing bad mentally just take a break and relax a little. if meditation is your thing I’d try that and if not maybe just watching a TV show or taking a nap to give yourself some time. also, talking is very very helpful sometimes. most of all you just have to figure out what it is that you want and set yourself a goal to work towards. make sure it’s specific and achievable and set little goals along the way. everytime you get one of those little goals congratulate yourself, as stupid as it sounds I promise it helps. for example, my big goal is that I want to be nicer so I’ve started with trying to do one nice thing every day and I make sure to congratulate myself everytime I do a nice thing. it’s like positive reinforcement so it helps. lastly is just finding what works for you because everyone’s different. you have to think about what it is that’s making you upset and try different ways of coping. some people distract themselves, others try to focus on the problem, and some talk it out but it’s a lot of trial and error to find something that works for you. hope this helped, message me if you need anything else !!

As for what I meant in dominance, I was going by what the doggy day care said she does. Which is barks/lunges at all dogs, hackles raised with all dogs, will hover tensely over all dogs. But did walk on/off leash with a small dog. And was apparently out with medium size dogs with no issues but they had to watch her for all those things I just said. So yes I would love to hear what you're opinion of those things is/if that's even considered dominance at all.

All of those behaviours sounds like insecurity and fear to me. Barking and lunging are designed to drive the other dogs away, standing over them tensely inhibits their movements (and rapid movements are scary to insecure dogs), and piloerection is just an arousal response (in context, it sounds like fear arousal).

“Dominance” in dogs describes a temporary relationship between individuals, not a personality trait or set of behaviours. In dogs, the dominant dog is the animal that gets primary access to a limited, desired resource. Which animal is dominant depends on the situation. For example, if you and I both wanted the last piece of cake, you may get it at your house (you would be dominant in that situation) while I may get it at my house (I would be dominant then). But if only one of us wants the last piece of cake, neither of us is dominant, because there’s no competition for that resource.

I’ve seen people describe fear, compulsive, play, aggressive, and even normal passive behaviours as dominant, which is why it’s not a good descriptor of dog behaviour even colloquially.

Anyway, if your dog is that insecure during daycare, it’s probably not a good fit for her. You could look into hiring a private dog walker if your dog needs the extra potty break or exercise during the day. She may also be fine with group walks if the other dogs are small or the dogs are well socialized and mellow. Many fearful dogs are okay in groups if everyone is focused on the environment rather than each other. A walk would be better than a dog park (lots of dog walkers like taking their dogs to dog parks, but that would cause the same issues as daycare), so you’d have to be very specific with the walker to ensure you’re getting a good fit for your dog.
