My friend invited me to a concert yesterday! Usually, I would say no. Usually I'm under the impression that I was invited because someone forgot that concerts have strobe lighting that'll give me a seizure. In those cases I don't go. I don't want to ruin anyone's good time and make them look after me if something happens.
She invited me though because I was telling her about a concert I was going to go to (cancled because of covid) and how I was going to go while knowing I'd be lucky if I got to see half of the show.
She was like "there's a show I'm going to in a couple of weeks, it's an outdoor event that starts at noon so I'm sure that will be a lot better in terms of lights! Plus, I know how to deal with your seizures, and you know that I'll make sure you're all right if anything happens. I'm not planning to drink anyways, since I'm driving, so worst case we can always go back early! But it would be soo much fun if you came so you totally should!"
And idk I just like, never realized people would actually know about my disability and be so chill accommodating me. She found a concert that would be ideal before inviting me, and she figured everything out so that I wouldn't be stressed, and when she invited me she did so in a way that focused on how she'd be able to help.
It just made me realize that maybe I'm not such an inconvenience to my able-bodied friends. They don't feel like I'm making them miss out on the fun times, because they want me to be included in the fun times
Hi my name is Charles Francis Xavier and I have floppy brown wavy hair (completely unrelated to how I got my name) and bright blue eyes that are more blue than the color blue everyone comments on them constantly and a lot of people tell me I look like Charles Darwin (AN: if u don’t know who he is get the hell out of here!). I’m not related to Gregor Mendel but I wish I was because he’s a major fucking hottie. I’m a mutant but I look exactly like a normal human. People sometimes call me Professor X (because of my mutation). I’m also rich, and I have a giant mansion in Westchester New York that I’m converting into a school (I’m 30). I’m an academic (in case you couldn’t tell) and I wear mostly cardigans. I love Oxford (the university where I graduated) and I buy all my clothes from there. For example today I was wearing a blue cardigan (to bring out my eyes) with a white button up, tan slacks, and black shoes. I don’t need to wear lipstick, since my lips are already so naturally red. I was walking outside the mansion. It was extremely sunny with some clouds, which I was very happy about. A lot of CIA agents stared at me. I ignored them because I am the better man.
“Hey Charles!” shouted a voice. I looked up. It was.... Erik Lehnsherr! (Magneto)!
“What’s up Erik?” I asked.
“Nothing.” he said and then silently stared very intently at me.
But then, I heard my students call me and I had to go away.
Ok so like many people have been like "oh the way ed looks at stede, the way stede looks at Ed, the way the look at each other" etc and yes very true
BUT it's important to me that they look at each other differently.
Everytime stede looks at Ed with love, it's like a look of relief and calmness and belonging (which fits with the theme of him not really feeling like he belongs as a fancy lad or as a pirate until he meets Ed).
Everytime (or a lot of the time) Ed looks at stede with love, it's a look of amazement and also just like idk how to describe this... But it makes sense because he's amazed at how much stede can bring into his life and be so new and genuine and how someone like that could care so much about someone like him.

I get irrationally angry when people ask me where did I get my patterns from and can I link them my resources
As unbelievable as it may be that I freehand crochet literally every single Pokemon, don't you think it would be more unbelievable if I somehow had found patterns for more than 539 unique pokemon?? Like for at least 20 of these I'm pretty sure I'm the only one who's made that specific Pokemon so far! What the hell kind of magic you think I'm using to successfully find a pattern for all of these??
I too got a little bad shit crazy on @just-call-me-bin 's aggie board
Eduardo and Tord became playboy bunnies
SLIGHT NSFW WARNING
I've done some things Im not proud of /j
it just ticks me, how most birdflash fans constantly brush linda aside like it was nothing
it’s not about the ship per se, obviously- i am no one to tell you who you should and should not ship, especially if it makes you happy. but in an enormous amount of cases, to prop up dick and wally, linda and her relationship with wally is diminished, neglected or straight up erased. even if you cared enough to keep them close as friends.
and it’s not even to gatekeep or say “to be a fan you need to have read x amount of comics”, but in the best cases most of what people know about wally and his character comes from the young justice cartoon and the rebirth titans comic (don’t you even get me started on the way they changed wally’s lightning rod from linda to the team and how drastic it is to wally’s character).
trust me, i know that most of us are extemely discouraged from actually considering female love interests as characters with a complexity that can actually create interesting dynamics with their male equally complex counterpart. i mean, we literally talk about fridging, and that’s a problem that has affected comics, as a male dominated media, ever since their birth.
but i promise that linda is a compelling, interesting, complex, multidimensional and so wonderfully real character, especially during waid’s run; and i promise that her relationship with wally isn’t as simple as a classic male-superhero-and-his-woman-love-interest relationship is, but it’s gradual, and growing through lessons learned from each other is a process that goes both ways. in all honesty, linda is a character that stands on her own feet and is interesting to read, she’s independent and has so many flaws and virtues that balance each other and things she works on about herself. she fails and she wins and she makes mistakes and she grows up and she’s relatable and feels- again- real.
but you could probably grasp even a pinch of all of this, if before approaching wally’s story you tried to read even a few issues of the comics from, you know, before he got even lost and needed to come back into existance.
just say you can’t bother caring to even approach female characters if they’re not the protagonist, it’s much easier you know
