Well, then…this is certainly a delicate situation, and I,
for one, am happy that you came to us for help.
Stan and I may not be able to magically repair everything, but you
definitely deserve the most insightful advice we can give—and that’s exactly
what we’ll try to provide you with.
First of all, know that you’re most definitely not alone;
Stan and I both had a less-than-caring father, and that led to some rocky
situations. However, I do acknowledge that Stan and I both had very different
experiences with our parents…and that’s exactly what you have to analyze in
this kind of situation: Experiences.
Have your parents been directly manipulative to you
before? Do they have a history of not
keeping their word? If so, you may want
to be more careful when making your decision.
However, the choice is always entirely
up to you. If they’ve been harsh in the
past but you trust they’ve changed, and you personally wish to reconnect, you
have every right to do so!
And hey, uh, Stan here, if I can just pop in for a
second—Ford’s right about one thing, and that’s how this is completely your choice. However, take it from me: things don’t always
go the way y’plan. I’m not sayin’ that to
scare ya or nothin’, I’m just lettin’ you know that it’s good t’always have a
backup plan! Talk to a friend y’trust if
you’re plannin’ to head back with your parents, just so you have an alternative
place t’stay if it doesn’t all work out.
And if it does work
out, hey, that’s great! At least you always
have someone who’s got your back, just in case.
Bottom line, this is entirely
your decision, please understand that. I
know it may be tempting to put blame on yourself, but in situations like these,
your safety always comes first. It’s not a matter of trust or obligation—it’s
a matter of what’s best for you!
It’s alright if you’re ready to reconnect. It’s alright if you need to wait a
while. And it’s alright if you never
wish to reconnect at all. What matters
most is your safety and comfort, and I truly mean that! Don’t be afraid to take things at your own
And hey, kiddo, remember that you don’t deserve anyone
mistreatin’ you, alright? None’f this
hogwash is your fault, and if y’ever need some kind’f safe space, we’ll all be
right here waitin’ for ya. Everybody
deserves t’be secure in their own home, and at the end’f the day, I really hope
Whether these twins are good and evil, quiet and loud, book-smart and street-smart, they’re in some important way opposite to each other. Of course, these twins are almost always identical, as well.
Why this can be bad:
While there are definitely twins who embody this idea, writers can
sometimes go completely overboard with this to the point that the twins
don’t even seem related. Another character might even comment on this
because it’s so blatant. When you take this to too much of an extreme,
your readers will find it hard to believe that these two ever even
existed in the same universe.
How you can fix it: Nature versus nurture is a big debate, but psychological studies
have found that genetics play a heavy role in personality. While any
family can have a diverse array of personality, there is always some
uniting factor. While we might not want to admit it, we’ve all had a
moment where we do something and realize how identical it is to our
parents or siblings. Whether raised together or not, we have lean
towards the personality traits of our immediate family, which means our
siblings, especially genetically-identical twins, have a high
level of similarity. This isn’t to say that your siblings can’t actively
fight it or try to avoid it, but it’s important to keep in mind that
they will have a decent amount of similarities.
Bottom Line: Remember that your twins are related, and if they’ve grown up together, then they’ll still have similarities between them.
*extends his hand* Guilty as charged, Molly Hooper.
*blushing* Oh God. Sorry, hi. You look like- I mean, Sherlock never mentioned he had a twin brother
Hmm, it doesn't really come under his favourite subject *pauses* himself.
*grins* Or you.
*hurries over to them, almost spilling his drinks; almost nervous* What are you talking about?
*winks at Molly* Ears burning...
*rolls his eyes* If you must know, I was about to tell Molly Hooper - pathologist, brainy, single, cat lady, sexy as hell *turns to Molly* sorry, I'm paraphrasing but that's the jist *back to Sherlock; slowly* that you fancy her *smug*
For me? *nicks one of Sherlock's drinks* bonsoir, brother dear *leaves*
*clears his throat* I-I don't fancy you. It's a...deep affetion *stares into his remaining glass* I love you.

Twin Bro says things like this: “If I have learned one thing this year, it’s that our impressions of
symptoms (patients or inexperienced providers) are not the only way to
look at things.“
And this: “I would lay everything out as if it’s the first visit, with your highest
priorities first, and if the doctor isn’t listening or can’t give you a
plan (we’ve tried this, this is next, here are final options) then
change doctors. Doctors are like therapists - you need someone who can
work with your communication style.“
I’m coming up on another doctor appointment about my endometriosis, and I feel like I’ve hit a wall. The treatments that usually work (the pill, laparoscopic surgery) haven’t worked well, and the one treatment that did work well (simulated menopause) isn’t something I can do very often because of the side effects. Perspective, mindfulness, and tips for how to talk to the doctor and what to look for are much appreciated, and Twin Bro delivers!
I “paid” him for the advice by sending him a picture of a dog being scared of kittens. I send him cute and funny pictures all the time, because the paycheck job has downtime, and he loves giant dogs and little kitties.
