Ok i had the most vivid picture in my head when i read this scene so i had to draw it. This is from the Pharmercy Mafia!AU fic:
Pocket Full of Shells by @logosminuspity (a fic based on drawings by @superrisu ) so go check that out if you want to fully understand this comic :D
it’s all fun and games until jack shares a bed with bitty for the first time in the dead of winter and instead of his usual cute lil PJs, bits wears sweatpants, a sweatshirt over a thermal shirt, and two pairs of socks to sleep in because the windows are drafty and the heater is crap and the north is a frigid Hellscape Wasteland when you’re from the south
it’s all fun and games until jack realizes he thinks it’s the goofiest shit and yet is still incredibly helplessly attracted to bitty and might as well start calling himself jack laurent bittle now while he’s ahead
If you are fasting tomorrow and you feel yourself getting sick, eat something.
If you are fasting tomorrow and you are so light-headed you can’t stand up: drink some water.
If you are fasting tomorrow and you take meds regularly, take them and the water you need to wash them down.
Yom Kippur is about reflection, atoning, and becoming a better person. Fasting is meant to take away distractions from that, and to keep us mindful for the rest of the year. It’s not meant for you to get to the point where you can’t make it through the day.
Like a lot of mizvot, fasting isn’t the destination — it’s the guide rail. Repentance is the observance of the day, not fasting. And to keep yourself healthy and alive and functional is the most important commandment, taking precedence over any other. There are many ways to reflect, to stay mindful, to atone, to filter the past year and approach the next; if you aren’t able to do it with your body, you can still do so with your heart.
Shana tova, all. May you be inscribed in the Book of Life.
