Fucking Rick Riordan, man

Magnus Chase: the Hammer of Thor was fucking amazing??? Rick is basically educating the youth on so many topics/issues going on right now: a transgender & gender fluid child of Loki (as his/her mom), some LGBT+ kids being shunned out of their houses and forced to be homeless, racial prejudice in the police system, potential hardships a deaf person could face in a deaf-shaming world, cultural appropriation, human trafficking. Not to mention the hostilities he destroys (like the arranged marriage between Samirah and Amir being the cutest thing, and Sam taking flight lessons). AND PRETTY CLEAR IMPLICATIONS OF SWORD SEX????

I just love how Rick is just like, “fuck the system I’ll put all this shit in a children’s book.” he’s passed caring about what the public might think now that he’s on his bajillionth book. my idol

hc on even and isak (+eskild) going to pride together? xx

yess!!!!!! yes yes yes!!

  • ok so in my head if isak were to go to pride it would be a Group Effort not just even and eskild… he would need all the support he can get ok
  • bc here’s the thing about pride - it’s overwhelming, esp if you’re someone whose never really been open about your sexuality, or struggled with internalized homophobia the way isak has. to be suddenly surrounding by so many open + proud gay people, it makes you wonder if you really belong with them. sometimes it feels like you’re making it up bc you’re not as ready as they are to go and make out with your boyfriend in front of the whole world or even just paint rainbows on your face. 
    • and also its just like??? the world has sort of shamed this sort of behavior all of your life, you never see it in tv shows or movies, and isaks never really seen this in his own personal life other than eskild so just to see??? himself in this?? and people like him??? everywhere? and to see them happy??? man it would be SO much for him to take in.
  • i think he would struggle a lot with whether or not he should go, if he’s ready to be there and be out and have his sexuality on display like that. but eskild thinks it would be good for him, bring him in touch with his own community, so he pesters isak until he gives in. 
  • at first isak isn’t planning on going with anyone other than eskild and even (who he asked hesitantly, in more of a whisper than anything else, a this is really stupid but there’s Pride this weekend and eskilds making me go and i was wondering if …. maybe you would want to come with me to which even smiles a little bit and goes oh yeah im totally down for that! pride last year was really fun and isak’s a little surprised because he never knew that even already did these things, and it makes him feel a little less weird about it)
    • but then the Boys find out and isak’s sort of embarassed bc he thinks they’re just gonna be like oh. ok. and be weird about it, but they react really well???? and they ask hey that sounds like fun could we come with you?
      • (jonas noticed how weird isak is acting about it and lowkey thinks he might need a friend there, its his way of asking do you want me to be there for you?)
    •  and isak feels this relief of tension he didn’t even know he had, he didnt know how nice it would feel to have friends who want to be there to support him, even if they’re not gay themselves (as far as we know… [eye emoji])
    • and jonas tells eva, who tells the rest of the Girls, and they all agree to go together - eva, who’s been growing more and more aware of her own sexuality and thinks that maybe going will help her figure it out, vilde, who has a part of her that really wants to go for some reason and who doesn’t realize why yet, noora, who’s already been so many times with eskild and loves it, sana, who feels a bit nervous about probably being the only girl there wearing a hijab but ready to support isak + prove that her religion doesnt make her any less supportive,  and chris, who just really wants to get drunk lbr.
    • so it becomes a Group Thing and isak never meant it to but he feels like he can breathe a little bit easier, it doesnt feel so weird, its obvious now that it never had to be a thing he had to keep a secret.
  • so. PRIDE. what fun huh.

We celebrate being autistic because doing so is a revolutionary act

In a world that tells us being autistic is worse than death, it is revolutionary to be proud of being autistic.

In a world that shames our natural ways of being, it is an act of resistance to celebrate our natural behaviors and ways of existing.

In a world that tells us we are not enough and never will be, it is a sign of strength to stay true to who we are.

We celebrate our autism. We are proud of our autism. We continue to flap and bounce and speak echolalicly and use scripts and live autisticly in a world that would rather we didn’t exist. 

To be autistic in this world is a revolutionary act of strength and for that we celebrate.

  • As always, all I should’ve said was, “I love you.”

I know I am difficult to love. And I know very well that you think you’re difficult to love as well.

Darling, it’s okay. It doesn’t matter. When I am crying, and shaking, and screaming, and breaking, your sweet words and understanding nature help me.

It doesn’t matter if you have a flat stomach or not, because, I have your radiant personality to hold onto.

Your heart is clearer and your eyes are brighter than the skin, you think, is dull and battered.

It’s you that I want.

We have our days when we feel insecure, but babe, always know that I am happy to have you in my life, never mind, not your ‘perfect’ body.

You are beautiful, and NO, I am not referring to how thin you are, or if you have a six-pack or not. You’re beautiful because you’re kind and caring and helpful and loving and I’d rather have a person with a good heart beside me than a person with just good looks.

God chooses the most unlikely to do the unimaginable. If you feel average and not so qualified, I assure you God can use you. Jesus did not choose the most educated or wealthiest to be His disciples. Most of them were unschooled fishermen. But these men were willing to leave everything to follow Christ. All He is looking for in us is a willing and obedient heart to display His glory and splendor.
But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 1 Corinthians 1:27
