#it’s the bus fault
blujayonthewing · 3 months ago
*my reticent, ruthlessly pragmatic ranger taking point as the party tries to sneak up on the BBEG, hoping to attack by surprise*
DM: you open the door, and you see the beholder at the other end of a large chamber. he’s looking at you, he knows you’re there, it looks like he was waiting for you
my ranger:
the beholder:
the party:
DM: what do you do
the party:
the beholder:
me: ............... uh. I... shoot him
DM, repeatedly afterwards for the next two years: I can’t believe you didn’t let him monologue
#sorry did you think ELYSS was going to say something first????#he's not mean about it it always comes up in like a teasing way but the fact that he keeps.... bringing it up......#oh YOU'RE bitter?? don't throw ME under the bus for this Elyss is the VERY LAST PERSON IN THAT ROOM anyone should have expected to say stuff#*I* would have LOVED to get that monologue which is WHY Elyss didn't shoot as soon as the door was open#and to be clear when I say 'taking point' the whole rest of the party was right with her it's not like she was the only one there#I've thought about this moment so many times because I genuinely can't think of a single thing I could have done differently#that wouldn't have been wildly out of character and felt extremely forced and weird#'we're here to kill you' ? 'you'll never get away with it' ?? walking into the chamber to a more exposed position? as an archer???#it REALLY felt like a moment for the BBEG to be like 'SO here we all are-- I've been waiting for you >:)' or SOMETHING#why was the ball in MY court??? why was this MY fault?????#as the DM it was your job to usher us into a cutscene if you wanted us to have one#not the intensely focused and deeply pragmatic hunter with a strong personal desire to kill this thing and zero interest in panache???#it stresses me out that he keeps bringing it up because it feels like I'm being told I fucked it up and ruined the encounter#I waited for literally anyone else to say or do anything because it DID feel so INTENSELY WEIRD to go into the fight with no preamble#it would have been The Most in character thing for Elyss to just shoot as soon as it was clear there was no element of surprise but I waited#I wanted there to be a cutscene! it was the end of a three year arc! but NO ONE ELSE said or did anything til it got AWKWARD#I feel like I've yelled about this before but I'm thinking about it again and it makes me wanna cry lol it fucking sucks dude#about me#irl frens#elyss insp

Chaol: You are late.
Aelin: Well It’s not my fault, the bus kept stopping for other people to get on it.

Why do I always miss my bus when it rains? English, 4. 56. 12
The whine I heard from upstairs sounded like that dog, only younger.

I stumbled across a reputable energy healer on Etsy and had him conduct a distance healing session to balance my feminine and masculine energy on Wednesday morning. He ended up doing all kinds of work throughout my body/ chakra system and releasing a ton of old attachments and stuck energy, and I’ve felt both lighter and more open than I have in ages and also very, very sad as old clogged/closed off areas of pain have finally started flowing again. It’s lead me to some profound realizations and healing, and with my 30th birthday rapidly approaching, this feels like a much bigger, more permanent shift in my being and health than anything before.
I am an emotional lightning rod/trash heap. Like the opposite of emotional vampires, who intentionally draw away other people’s positive energy, I unintentionally draw people’s negative energy. My mother, my sister, my aunt, my grandmother, a former best friend, my late partner, my old classmates, some of my teachers, strangers on the bus, tons and tons of other people have just heaped on me, without my consent.
In this way, I was emotionally neglected, used, and abused on a daily basis for my whole life until now. I know the language for it is shockingly strong, but it feels like a form of energetic rape. Even if the person doing it never even physically touched me, emotional/mental/energy body has been violated continually, often by the very people who are closest to me and should have been taking care of me. It feels like I’ve carried a whole forest of hooks in my belly from where people have sliced me open and shoved all their garbage in.
No wonder my body has built in so many layers of padding and fat, especially around my sensitive belly, and by mind has built in so much anxiety/depression/addictiveness to numb me out to all of the crap piled on me all day. No wonder I feel like I’ve been carrying around all of this bullshit in my body from other people that isn’t mine to carry. No wonder I’ve assumed that I’m an unloved, unwanted burden.
No wonder I’ve had self esteem issues/so much hesitancy around opening up so that the masculine/goddess/universe can pour good things into me and I’ve been closed off to emotional intimacy and sex - nearly every time that I’ve been poured into before it’s been a bucket of shit! No wonder it surprises me when people treat me with genuine love, kindness, and friendship and pour honey over me instead.
It’s not my fault that I draw this any more than it’s my fault that I’ve got resting helpful face. This is simply the way the universe set me up in order to become the best counselor I can - because holy crap has this ever been amazing training. Yes, I became a people-pleaser and fawner and doormat in order to survive that life, but it taught me sooo much about people and their inner lives and emotional health. And I don’t have to be that way anymore - it is my birthright to have healthy boundaries and space away from the people who use and abuse me.
I am the alchemical child of my emotionally neglected/abused maternal line and my loving, best-unofficial-therapist-I’ve-ever-known paternal Grandmother - the perfect combination to heal my ancestral traumas. I am the one to break this pattern and liberate us all.
But first I am liberating myself.

But nothing has sense nor purpose in the Pale City: things just happen.

A radfem started comparing straight relationships to pedophilia and her and her buddies go on a solanas level sperg about the patriarchy but with more focus on how it's women's fault things are the way they are. that straight and bi women are at fault for not rejecting their sexuality and becoming celibate. that women are the problem and feminism is about fighting women. And there's people in my inbox crying about straight radfems showing what it sounds like to them.
There is an attempt at throwing over half the population of women under the bus on here and yall are in my inbox instead of going off at the idiot who started this.
