ok tho but like going back to that anon about my insecurities
|— Neil Hilborn (via benzobuttercup)|
ok so like, while i was at work today i was thinking heavily about something
i once heard/ready an old guy complaining about how children these days lack imagination because toys are coupled with shows which have fully defined plotlines and therefore now kids don’t need to use their imagination to create characters and storylines for their toys like all of these older generations did
his claim was that these developed characters and storylines may be impairing our younger generations abilities to think outside of preconceived gridlines
well, ok, regardless of all of that, can you imagine the long-term impact this is going to have on the production of fanfiction
children grow up playing with toys and creating AUs for characters that already exist. they have this FANFIC-CREATION founding to start with now. that’s probably why fanfic numbers are continually spiking, because we’re growing up honing these abilities.
but to drag this out even MORE, you can give this like, a gender analysis as well
so like, “”boys toys”” and shows are like, fighting-centric, right? like, TMNT, power rangers, etc. they go out and solve an issue physically
then girls toys and shows are like, problem-solving via communication, like MLP and lalaloopsy and MH and junk
soooooo. while the boys are off playing with their TMNT and makin em fight one another, the girls are creating conflict with like, rainbow dash and fluttershy and then workin it out using plot devices they learn in the show and then
that is why we have more female fanfic authors than male, because they grow up DOING THIS
im calling it now, do u see this proof i have written, look at how tangential all this junk is
i cant stop thinking about it im sure this has like 5 billion more impacts
anon you are unbelievable!!
- redbean ice cream:ideal partner
YOOooOOo um, that’s kinda hard because i’m at this point in my life where i’m trying to figure out what i want?
like, because i’m back and forth between iowa and michigan, it doesn’t really afford any opportunities to date in either place. so instead i’m taking this time to figure out what i want to do - do i want a lifelong queerplatonic relat? romantic but not sexual? romantic AND sexual? what qualities do i find attractive in other people? WHO KNOWS
in general, i think my ideal partner is probably going to be ace spectrum and feminine in presentation and behavior. they have to be at least slightly geeky? probably well-educated and talkative, and we’ve gotta have the same sense of humor. it’s also important that we share similar political views and can carry informed conversations and engage in some polite banter on social justice issues. similar tastes and hobbies (fashion, makeup, horror movies, toy collecting, whathaveyou) would be nice as well.
at the same time, it’s really important that i’m not intimidated by them, because that seems to happen way too frequently, haha.
- greenbean Popsicle:smth im jealous of
ok first of all, what the hell is a green bean popsicle and why would anyone want to eat that….
im thinking about it, and there isn’t a lot that i’m jealous of. i guess, most of all, i’m jealous of people who come from higher-class-status families. but on the other side, coming from my family has afforded me a lot more instances where i have to learn to do stuff for myself, which is a good thing, really.
i don’t know many other people who have dealt with the college admittance process and annual financial aid applications as independently as i have.
in all, i’m really lucky to where i am and who i am, so there isn’t a lot to be jealous of. i’m super privileged to be here.
- mochi ice cream:what i look for in a friend
humor. that’s the big thing. kindness is number two. if you make me laugh, you’re in immediately. if you’re super sweet, i also probably love you. most of my close friends have both of these qualities. it’s just important that we click. it’s also cool if we have similar hobbies, backgrounds, and interaction styles.

if i told, then would it really be a secret?
do you ever have those nights where every tiny thing that could possibly go wrong has went wrong, and it all builds up and suddenly, there you are, at 9pm, in the grocery store cosmetics aisle, buying eyeshadow palettes you don’t even need, out of sheer mental exhaustion and desperation?
that’s kinda where I am right now.
