A small tag request for my mutuals

This is going to sound stupid but I’d appreciate it if people would start tagging zodiac posts. No, I don’t believe in horoscopes, but it seems like every zodiac post that goes around has something horrible to say about sagittarius and it’s really starting to bother me. I don’t understand why this one group of people keeps getting dumped on and it doesn’t help that i’m actually IN the group. Yes I realize this probably doesn’t make sense because I don’t believe in this shit, but I’m still tired of seeing over and over that a group I belong to is awful just because of the time of year we were born.

Of course he does. How else do you think he promotes Sonic Café?

Auugh why is so hard to find a theme that fits my specific needs??

I just want to give my FNM blog a new coat of paint not fight through a thousand blog themes with tiny text and no image descriptions

I will never understand why microscopic text is a thing. Whenever I see a blog that makes me squint and lean into my screen — WITH MY GLASSES ON — I immediately give up and think “Oh well, I hope they weren’t cool.”

Oh my god, every episode of every season of Penn & Teller: Bullshit has been added to OnDemand.

male game designer: hey maybe we should treat women like people
male gamer: how could you say these things... i trusted you... i have lost a hero on this day

I guess now is as good a time as any to point out that if I haven’t spoken to you for a long time the reason I might not be initiating anything is that I’m worried you either don’t remember me or don’t like me anymore.

Wow that was… not cool.

I do have a Facebook account, and I made it mostly to keep up with the friends I made in college; I don’t really have a lot of old high school friends on my FB friend list. I do have one, but she never really responds to anything I say to her or anything I post, so I’m never sure what to think about that.

Anyway, there were a couple other people I’d been trying to find, because I’d also been close to them in high school, but couldn’t quite track them down (likely due to changing names for marriage). Today I saw that my friend did the ice bucket challenge, and she tagged one of the others I’d been wanting to find and connect with. I saw that someone named “[friend first name] [new last name]” had liked it, and I thought “That’s probably her, let’s go check.” I went to her page and she didn’t really have pictures I could use, so I looked through her friend list to see if there were peers I recognized.

There were a lot of names and/or faces I did know, so I figured it was her. I also started thinking “Maybe I should connect with that person, or that one,” but as the volume of names started piling up, I started having this huge wave of anxiety fall down on me. I have a thing where I sort of assume that after I haven’t talked to someone in a long time, at best they don’t remember me and at worst they don’t like me anymore, but furthermore, I was really depressed and all around fucked up in high school, and I know I messed up some relationships while I was going through it. The worry that they wouldn’t like me anymore got really overwhelming all of a suddenly had this sort of… time travel moment where I felt like I was back in high school and right in the pit of my depression of the time and it felt… horrible.

I didn’t know I could feel like that again, let alone from the possibility of being discovered by people I used to know. I kind of feel like I’m in this panic-anxiety-selfhate-wanttocry place and I don’t know what to do with it or how to effectively get around it, I guess because I haven’t felt it for so long. Basically I think I’m freaking out and have this looming feeling of disdain over my head and my heart’s kind of racing and everything feels far away.

12-24

12. Have you ever been disappointed when your ship finally got together?

Answered previously.

13. Has a ship ever broken your heart?

I know I was pretty upset when I learned that, in the time since I’d ditched the comics, Sonic and Sally had not only separated, but they did it in a grotesquely OOC manner. I think I took it pretty personally because they were such important characters to me and it felt like they’d been mangled.

14. How do you feel about will they/won’t they?

Answered a moment ago.

15. Have you ever “shipped at first sight”?

Nothing more extensive than looking at a couple of character designs and thinking they look cute together. I need to know personalities before I ship.

16. Talk about a ship you initially disliked.

Sonic and Fiona has always really upset me — not because of Sonic not being with Sally, but because of what it meant Sonic was doing to Tails. Just… No, I don’t believe you. I don’t believe that Sonic would be that oblivious to what it would do to someone he cares so much about, no matter HOW badly he was rebounding.

17. Talk about a pairing you’ve stopped shipping romantically.

Knuckles and Julie-Su. When I was a kid I was immediately on-board with this pairing, because not only was Knuckles one of my favorite characters, but Julie-Su was so new and different than any of the other girls at that time. However, her character started to change drastically within just a couple issues. I tried to ignore and just kept mentally asserting the way I’d seen her from that first issue, but after a while it stopped working. Then way down the line when I found out they were actually related, that pairing was officially dead for me.

18. Talk about a moment which made you question an entire ship.

I’m sorry, but I’ll have to point again at Knuckles and Julie-Su being related. Just… WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT, PENDERS????

19. Have you ever shipped something despite yourself?

Knuckles and Finitevus comes to mind. When I first heard of the pairing I thought it was ridiculous and would never, ever work. Then I started RPing it as a joke just to see if we could ever manage to get them together, and in doing so I discovered that they can actually work really, really well provided that a few issues get hashed out first.

20. Talk about a ship you feel alone in shipping.

I think I’ve mentioned Espio and Honey once in passing. It’s a really obscure and excessively fanon story.

21. Is there a ship you just don’t get, but have nothing against?

Sonic and Amy. I just… don’t see it. It’s not that I prefer him with Sally, it’s just that I’ve simply never seen any romantic chemistry between them. I certainly think that Sonic cares about Amy, but I don’t see any indication that he’s in love with her. I don’t think their personalities balance out well, and I think they work much better as friends (or they would if Amy would ever tone it down). But, having said that, I’ve never begrudged Sonic/Amy shippers. They’re not hurting anyone and it’s really none of my business.

22. Which of your ships have the best chemistry?

Sonic and Sally. </broken record>

23. Which of your ships deserve better writing?

I think Knuckles and Rouge have missed a lot of opportunities to have real moments together. Not even necessarily romantic ones, just moments.

24. Do you mostly ship canon pairings?

That does seem to be the trend, but it’s clearly not 100%.

Okay, have some numbers! 3,6,8,14,37,

3. What’s your current OTP?

Sonic and Sally Uh… Well I DID just write an intensive article about the St. Johns.

6. How do you feel about love triangles?

I think they can be intriguing sometimes, but in most cases they’re written poorly and it just becomes obnoxious high school shit. I wish people would focus less on jealousy and territoriality of the one(s) on the outside and more on the emotional struggle of the person(s) in the middle.

8. Have you ever shipped yourself with a character?

I’m not completely sure if this counts, because there was an actual, real person behind it, but I could potentially answer Vegeta for this. I used to hate Vegeta as a character, but when I was in high school I met a guy online that RP’d as him. The RPer was a really great guy, which is what melted me toward the character, and we began to RP our characters as a couple. As I played a self-insert at the time, that’d make it a me x Vegeta pairing, even if it was moreso me x this-guy-playing-Vegeta.

As far as “I like that character right there and want to be with them,” not that I can recall. When I get infatuated with a character, I tend to daydream about them with other in-universe characters since I’m not part of their world.

14. How do you feel about will they/won’t they?

Like triangles, it can be done well, but a lot of times it’s not. I think this one generally has more success than triangles, and when it’s done well it’s something I really enjoy.

37. Do you have a favorite trope and/or AU for your OTP?

I kinda know fuckall about tropes, but as far as AUs, I have a lot that I’ve enjoyed RPing for one of my couples. The most successful ones have typically employed an otherworldly element to explore (ex. vampires, mermaids, etc).

3.), 4.), 7.), 12.). 8D

3. What’s your current OTP?

Ohhhh I’m sure Sonic and Sally is too obvious, but it really is the first one to come to mind.

4. What’s your current NOTP?

Shadow and Rouge. Just… no. I see them more like siblings. They’re incredibly close and have great chemistry and do love each other, but in a familial way. (Besides, I don’t really see Shadow as being interested in anyone.)

7. How do you feel about RPF?

Just answered that a moment ago. I’d take the opportunity to expand upon it, but I barely had enough to say the first time.

12. Have you ever been disappointed when your ship finally got together?

Not that I can think of.
