I decided to draw Bell :3
Hey. Listen. Okay?
Are good Furbies.
someone: mentions being excited about my special interest
me, hissing: no that’s mine!! stay away!
Unapologetically like your special interests/hyperfixations!
I transported my brain back into 2012 and infodumped about RWBY to my dad for OVER AN HOUR
how do i know if this is your special interest, or if you’re just reblogging a friend’s special interest?
Zoo employee: So the octopus is a cephalo-
Me, already flapping my hands:
Alright, that’s it.
I’m setting up a redbubble to sell prints of my work, and I’ll reblog this with the link as soon as I do. o uo b
I like how the creature power suits light up *-*
!!!!! THE SQUAD THICKENS !!!!
Yes I am neurodivergent yes I can’t fucking handle people making jokes abt or criticizing my special interest I am valid I think
My autistic ass is really just like: regains special interest in Sonic during quarantine huh?
Dumb stupid question.
What’s the difference between a hyperfixation, special interest, and just something you like a lot?
When I was in middle school, I REALLY loved Harry Potter. Absolutely obsessive. I read and reread the series dozens of times, knew loads of trivia, collected merch and toys, was even on Pottermore for a time. It was the basis of most of my conversations. I wrote/read fanfiction and drew fanart. It was an essential part of my development. My Harry Potter birthday party ROCKED.
Today, though I am still an HP fan, I really, really like space, miniatures, dinosaurs, pirates, and stuffed animals. However, I couldn’t claim to know a lot about them and I’m not sure I have the mental capacity to read textbook-like material about them.
But! I do listen to a space podcast and I can talk to you minimally about reusable spaceships and what causes a black hole, have a mental databank of Build-A-Bears I love, and could probably make a miniature version of anything you could think of that would be fit for a Barbie. I might even be able to get through a “bullet-point” fact book about the more sciencey subjects.
So, is there a middle ground? Must I be obsessed like I was with Harry Potter for it to be considered part of my ADHD, or is my lack of a SpIn/hyperfixation a side effect of the healing from when I was depressed in 2018 and lost my passions?
my mom: so, what’s that podcast you like, uh, “welcome to night vale” about?
me, infodumpimg: and there’s a dog park which you can’t go in because of hooded figured oh and wheat and wheat by-products are illegal and wednesday is sometimes cancelled and-
my mom: W H A T
man quarantine really said it’s time to revisit every special interest i’ve ever had
autistic ppl be like: I FREAKING LOVE HALLOWEEEN
autistic power is finding a way to incorporate the ninja turtles into my thesis about aesthetics
I got a new comfort item! I’ve been on a fantasy kick lately ie: fairies, dragons, unicorns so I’m really happy
Her name is Lisanna after one of my favourite characters from Fairy Tail 😁
If anyone is wondering, she’s from the Bearington Collection. If you’re looking for a soft toy they have virtually every animal and they’re very soft. My plush cat Titania is also from them
I used to collect these sonic boom dog tags. And there was one of Tails that I fell in love with, I literally wore it all the time (except for when I’m sleeping or in the shower). I remember that I broke it one day and I was heartbroken.. I thought that he looked adorable on it which is why I loved it so much.
