he/him, ravenclaw, infp, melancholic, chaotic good, too old for this shit but here i am. evak, wolfstar, firstprince, mercy & others, with a side of sci-fi, britcoms, animals, history, linguistics and anything norwegian.
We looked inside some of the posts by cobwebsandcathair and here's what we found interesting.
I think I just had an epiphany. So I'm hanging out with my dad for fathers day and my step family is here too. We were talking about scifi and my stepsister's grandfather said something a bit how he never liked scifi because it feels too removed from humanity.
Naturally my autistic father took issue with this, and so did I. He talked about how that's not really true. Scifi and fantasy us about exploring different sides and concepts of humanity. It's about exploring complex human issues and the nature of humanity. Essentially taking an outsider's approach.
And I think that's why so many autistic and ADHD people love fantasy and scifi. I think that's why so many of us in the tsc fandom are nd. Because we have a very complex relationship with humanity and out emotions and our identities.
We relate to the outsiders perspective because we are outsiders. I can't believe it took me this long to realize that.
I had a dream that unless the teacher told us class was over, we were forbidden from going out the door. Our teacher was very forgetful, and maybe even malicious. After being forced to stay past sunset many days, my class decided we were going to break out every night. Eventually our attempts led us to discovering rifts in space-time where we could warp. So we never used the door. Checkmate.
