Yo I was wondering, how would Caleb and Chloe respond to/perceive someone else's nostalgia? For example, if someone was reminded of the smell of their grandmothers house, or a piece of their childhood that was extremely important to them but they know they'll never see again. Would Chloe see or smell the place they were thinking of (since memories are heavily tied to scent)? What color would Caleb describe nostalgia as?
So, first off…I’m going to answer this for Caleb. I’ll leave Lauren and/or Anna to answer on Chloe’s behalf…but I have thoughts on this. I’m going to mention a little story here…
A month or so ago I was out to dinner with my boyfriend. After our evening of IKEA meatballs and Lingonberry drinks, we decided we wanted to grab dessert somewhere. So we decided to go to a bakery in Burbank that I had never been to before…
After jamming out to some classic Cartel in the car, we arrived and walked into the bakery; I froze immediately. I froze immediately and in about five seconds I was crying. I’m not even kidding…I was full on crying. I was crying because the inside of that bakery smelled like my Great Gram’s house (she passed away 10 years ago and we were incredibly close).
In that moment, when I stepped inside that bakery, I smelled a smell that I never thought I’d experience again; a smell that I didn’t know I missed. It all just hit me and I started crying. I was so grateful for that moment because in the span of a minute I was hit by this flow of happiness and sadness as I reflected on memories of me, my brother and my Great Gram.
So…the reason I bring this story up is because I don’t think “nostalgia” is necessarily an “emotion”…but I think it can be “a vessel that carries us down a river of emotions” (cheesy wording…but true AF).
…and therefore, my answer: While I don’t think nostalgia can necessarily be felt by Caleb as an emotion/color all by itself…Caleb, as he matures, has been able to begin to identify combinations of emotions and what those combinations might mean. Think of it like each color is a word in a sentence and the full sentence describes the complexity of a thought or experience (like nostalgia). Actually!Even better…anybody here see ‘Inside Out’? As the character Riley gets older…the colored globes in her head evolve from single colors (blue for sadness, yellow for happiness) to mixtures of them. I think Caleb in all of his fits and starts of emotional maturity (he’s a teenage boy…so…lots of fits guys) he is learning to translate combinations of emotions into more intangible concepts like “nostalgia”.
In The Bright Sessions, Caleb has said things like “Orange and smothering” I believe, to describe emotions like pride or protectiveness…and I think that’s a result of the emotions that make up that intention mixing together to produce a color that can be perceived and communicated to describe that concept.
So…there ya go! My thoughts on that. I Hope it made sense!

You know you've been in problematic fandoms for too long when
find a fandom that has no visible discourse and everyone is being nice to you and helping you find blogs for the specific content you want in that fandom and all you can think is:
“the evil… where is it?”
hi so I went to london for the second time ever and it was even lovelier than the first time. even got to reunite with a long-time friend from france and honestly it was the best. I now have a mighty need to travel the world with friends more often, it’s p much the best💘💘

Alright the bride-thing in FE Heroes has its faults, but I do in fact like the attack animations. Cordelia’s Cupid Bow creates a firework of hearts, and I can’t help but imagine she’s actually just yelling compliments at her enemies.
Cordelia: “YOU LOOK RADIANT! I LOVE YOUR HELMET!” Random sword dude: “Ugh, she’s so nice, I’m defeated, time out.”
let’s just put it out there before i say anything, PAY NO HEED TO THIS SHITTY GRAPHIC OKAY. and i know i haven’t been very active this last week but that’s because life has been slapping me in the face.
so it’s been two years TO THE DAY and one blog move later, but holli is still here???? i can’t even fully comprehend that fact. that’s just…. WOW. it’s wow. i jump around from blog to blog rather regularly so i never really thought holli was going to stick like she has. but i’m rather glad she did. i’ve met so many cool people. i’ve put up with some weird ass drama on my ride here as well. but, in the great expanse of it all, i feel like i’ve grown a lot as a writer and as a person because of it. does that make sense? gosh, i hope so. anyway, prepare for the sap fest that’s coming up. because, shit. it’s super sappy.
also i may have forgotten some people, because it feels like i have. but PLEASE know. if you’re seeing this at all, know i appreciate you and love you. thank you for being here ! <3 <3
One of the things I loved about dans new video is that it captures exactly how depression feels for me? I mean, I always feel like I’m on an island instead of a hole, but the whole disassociating and seeming okay resonated with me so much and ugh I love this boy I swear
dude it was so wonderful! like ok. im a psychology major and i was a bit nervous about the video bc i was worried it’d say a lot of things about mental health that were myth-y or like,,, “this is the RIGHT WAY” or something, but it’s DAN and dan doesn’t do shit like that and this was literally the PERFECT video and im just so…. fucking…. HAPPY gdi
