If anyone is kind of new to sports or at least to having injuries, I have some good advice for you!
So when you get injuries even if it’s small, rest your god damn injury. Rest, get it lifted and more than two weeks, even if it doesnt hurt. I tired multiple times to train on a bad ancle and it did not work. So yeah, rest damn it.
Rest right tho. That means do whatever you can with what you have to re-train the injured limb. And do the exorcising you can so you dont have too work as hard when you come back.
Pressure the doctors. I did not know about this. But it is common knowledge that doctors will dismiss sports injuries and just tell you to take some pain killers and rest. And yeah, try that first, but it this continues for more than two weeks, pressure your doctor to refer you to scanning or a physio or anything! Because youre gonna have to wait anyway in the private healthcare sector. So pressure them!
Once youre cleared to go back to training, listen to your body.
And also, this is really important, prepare yourself mentally!! I cannot stress this enough. While dealing with an injury it is completely normal to start to feel isolated, and like everyone else is getting better while youre standing still. It can be so so frustrating! But it is perfectly normal! And you should talk to your friends or family about how you feel. When you get back do the same thing! If youre newer to the team, it’s normal to get back and still feel isolated and left out and like youre starting from zero with everything. And it is so frustrating, feeling like every one else has moved in front of you and you struggle with basics again. Again, totally normal! And especially when you start up again, it is fun to go to watch your teammates play. But it can be so heartwrenching to see your teammates do what you want, and if they hang out after it’s really easy to feel left out. But this is important, if youre feeling sad at practice. Especially if it’s just team hanging out and such, if you feel yourself getting sad or uncomfortable, get out, remove yourself from the situation. Do not feel an obligation to stay! It is okay to feel this way! You have to ease back into it. It is better to leave and protect your emotions than politely stay and feel worse for it! Take care of your body physically but getting back mentally really tales a toll as well!
I think I might be a tsundere for MXTX romances because I keep saying I don't care for them and read her books for everything but the romance, but I'm also weirdly attached to all her canon pairings???
You may be! I have a weird relationship to all of them that basically goes:
Scum Villain: her earliest and IMO least polished work, features both my least favourite and favourite of her canon ships, would not recommend to anyone without a small list of warnings, my absolute favourite of her novels.
Heaven's Official Blessing: I genuinely think this is her best novel, and it features my favourite of her main couples by a significant margin. Takes up comparatively little space in my brain compared to the other two.
MDZS: neither her best work nor my favourite of her couples. I'm completely obsessed.

does begging work on the jeweler (like, is that his end goal/sign that someone has broken) or does it depend? and what does it take to get diamond to beg the jeweler in their current state? did they used to beg when they were younger when it came to especially painful/scary jewel-related things? how did jeweler react to that fear/pleading? with faux-creepy-sympathy or disappointed anger? would he hurt them worse? sorry for so many questions, i just adore this story!!! - newbornwhumperfly
Please never apologize for asking too many questions! There's no such thing as too many questions! I adore these questions so much!
So the Jeweler likes begging, but it's not necessarily a sign that a Jewel has broken. For example, Saph has begged multiple times over the years, simply from the pain being too much, and yet he's never fully broken. The Jeweler looks more for complete and total obedience.
Diamond will basically beg on command now, and they even know the Jeweler and his body language well enough to do it without having to be told. They'll also beg for whatever the Jeweler tells them too, including having him hurt them.
They did beg a lot and shamelessly at the beginning. Sometimes they'd beg for the Jeweler to not make them do something or be hurt and the Jeweler would typically reply with sympathy and encouragement, like "I know this hurts/is uncomfortable, but you're doing so well and I'm so proud of you. Just a little longer." On the rare occasion they'd keep pushing, he'd respond with disappointment, which typically scared them more than flat out anger.
