But even though she was attractive, there was something else about her that caught his eye. She was intelligent, he could sense that right away, and confident, too, as if she were able to move through life on her own terms. To him, these were the things that really mattered. Without them, beauty was nothing.
In Sway when Morse says that the symbol on the wall is an infinity sign & it means the killer isn’t going to stop & goes into all this dramatic detail when it’s just an 8 on it’s side is one of my favourite moments of Morse being Extra
Hey, y’all. I was hoping to get a little help with something. I know I’ve talked about my boyfriend on here before, and about how he wants to understand gender, specifically non-binary gender, better. He was raised in a very conservative household where anything straying from the male-female was regarded as “socialist propaganda” and strongly dismissed, and it wasn’t until just a few years ago that the concept of gender theory was even available to him. Now, he’s very respectful of gender identity and he would never intentionally misgender someone because he’s not a dick, but he feels that he would benefit from understanding the issues surrounding gender in addition to accepting them.
He and I have had countless discussions on the subject. We tend to agree on most things and we generally reach the same conclusions, but our processes for arriving at those conclusions are different. He’s very intelligent, but we think differently. I’m a very abstract and theoretical thinker, but he is more concrete. It makes for some awesome discussions (y’all should come over for dinner sometime), but it also means that the sources I read to learn about and understand gender theory, those that use very theoretical and abstract language and points, are not helpful to him.
So, this is where you lot come in. You curious, brilliant people. I am looking for good articles or journals or even books on gender theory that are helpful to a concrete mind. Or, if any of my non-binary followers are willing, someone to sit down and patiently have a conversation with the man. Send me sources!
What if a strain runs into Fushimi and their ability lets the person they've affected hear what the devices around them are saying. (Computers, phones, etc)
Imagine Fushimi gets hit by the Strain power and the first thing he
hears is this weird noise almost like a purr. At first he’s not sure
where it’s coming from, it sounds like it’s nearby but there’s no
sign of a cat or anything else, and the alphabet squad look at him
like he’s hearing things when he mentions it. Fushimi finally
realizes that the sound is coming from his PDA, he wonders if maybe
it got a virus or something and as he’s fiddling with it the PDA
gives this pleased little ’…love you…’ Fushimi almost drops the
damn thing he’s so startled and vaguely disgusted. None of the
alphabet boys claim to have heard that one either and then Doumyouji
runs up to give him a report on the pursuit, PDA in hand. Doumyouji’s
PDA immediately starts whimpering for Fushimi to save it because
Doumyouji uses so much space on dating apps and stupid games and
trash apps that would probably have installed trackers in his phone
if Fushimi hadn’t coded the software Scepter 4 uses himself. That’s
when he starts to realize that he can ‘hear’ anything electronic,
like all the alphabet boys PDAs are suddenly clamoring at him. Kamo’s
likes to talk about all the cute pictures of Kamo’s daughter and also
trade sushi recipes, Akiyama’s and Benzai’s are mercifully silent and
well behaved most of the time but every now and again Akiyama’s makes
a comment about collars and leashes that makes Fushimi really hope
that’s because Akiyama likes animals. Enomoto’s keeps up a steady
stream of chatter about the latest anime movie or video game.
Hidaka’s is perpetually talking about large breasts and Fushimi
himself, Hidaka doesn’t understand why Fushimi keeps glaring at him
all of a sudden. Fushimi’s PDA continues to love him though, because
Fushimi treats it right and gives it so much attention.
So they all head back to Scepter 4 and the drive is a little rough
because the van won’t shut the fuck up about the road conditions. It
doesn’t like Doumyouji driving so Fushimi makes them stop and switch
to Akiyama, the van likes Akiyama a little too much and that
combined with the PDA’s collar comments makes Fushimi kinda side eye
Akiyama a little, poor Akiyama has no idea what he did to make
Fushimi mad and is very flustered about it. Fushimi also learns that
traffic lights are assholes, they keep saying ‘stop’ when the light
is green and 'go’ when it’s red and Fushimi almost makes Akiyama get
them into accidents a few times by asking why he’s not going already
at a red light. Fushimi also ends up with a headache from listening
to all the chatter of everything around them, the cars on the road
and all the phones everywhere. At one point he catches the sound of a
small voice that sounds almost familiar trying to give someone a pep
talk about making up with a friend and he looks outside to see Yata
wandering along the road nearby talking to Kusanagi on his PDA watch.
Fushimi immediately looks away and orders Akiyama to run a red light.
They all get back to headquarters and Fushimi has a splitting
headache but he’s determined to finish his reports anyway. The
vending machine keeps trying to literally sweet talk him into some
nice canned coffee and a candy bar. He stops in his own room for a
minute and immediately everything electronic in there starts with the
purring, his computer is so happy to see him and even the handheld
game system that he hasn’t played in years is making happy puppy
sounds. Fushimi can’t handle the weird electronic inanimate object
affection and goes back to the office to do some reports, it turns
out the computers hate doing paperwork almost as much as the rest of
the force does. But then maybe he overhears one computer making sad
complaining sounds and saying it feels sick, Fushimi roughly shoves
Fuse aside and starts fiddling with the computer, discovering that
there was a complicated computer virus infecting it and Fushimi
immediately quarantines and destroys it. Everyone’s so impressed by
Fushimi’s intuition that he knew the virus was there, Fushimi just
clicks his tongue and tries to ignore the profuse expressions of
thanks from the computer itself.
Also forgot to mention my 5 year old brother told me that i look like a boy with blood in my hair as soon as i walked through the door and my dad keeps comparing me to a mandarin orange and. Im so glad they like my hair (’:
I just got home y’all, tonight was such a magical experience. I cried. I screamed. I felt really blessed to have experienced it with two wonderful friends and I love all of BTS 10x more now, I don’t know how explain it fully…
