So have an index!
I’ve arranged it by topic — for now, at least. I’ll try to keep it as updated as possible!
These are the words I’ve just written on paper. Hand-written, in ballpoint pen, in my multi-coloured Crayola notebook (all the cool kids have them! 😉😎)
…It’s a sentiment I fully endorse, because I have no clue where this plot twist came from.
And, with wide eyes, my only statement at this moment can only be an echoed, ‘Holy sh**.’
(Only I can’t swear because my mother, so it was more like ‘Holy…’ and then trailing off.)
And I didn’t see it coming.
Sure, there are a few pre-written sections which no longer fit with this development, but due to the…
…Either you or your kid keeps getting kidnapped and you have to save each other…
…someone changes the timeline and suddenly you’ve accidentally poofed your child out of existence…
…your kids get ret-conned for film license purposes so that they’re no longer your kids…
…they turn out to be super-villains even though you thought they were dead…
(This post may have some mild SPOILERS for various superhero-y dealies.)
(don’t worry this is a SPOILER-free zone)
Fingers crossed, it delivers!
(Yes, I am an episode behind, so no SPOILERS please.)
(No, that’s not a SPOILER, because Queer identities are not SPOILERS, and Loki has been all kinds of Queer in the comics for a long time — this is the correction of some b*llsh** Cis/Straight-washing. #NowYaKnow)
Well, kinda confirmed as Gender-Fluid. It was an easter egg. In Loki’s file at the Time Variants Authority (TVA) if you look really close, it says ‘Sex — Fluid’.
Hopefully we’ll get more explicit acknowledgement of this — because Tom Hiddleston seems like…
(Warning: this post briefly references and details mental health problems (Depression/Anxiety))
I’ve tried pretty much everything to sort this out — but Amazon UK don’t seem to care.
So I will do what I do in situations like this — I will put it all out there on the table, in it’s full stalling-tactics, arbitrary, frustrating glory.
(This is a long one — feel free to bookmark it and come back, but I would really, really, appreciate you reading this. 💖)
I don’t just ‘leave it,’ not when I know I did nothing wrong.
I will keep going, again and…
(Warning: this post discusses several instances of Homophobia, and the feelings caused.)
I use the term Homophobia here as a catch-all for all types of bigotry against LGBTQ+ people, including general Queerphobia, and Transphobia.
And a teeny-tiny voice in my small child brain said, ‘But what about me?’ and then I stamped it down very, very, hard.
Partly because I didn’t know what I meant. What about me? What was I?
Well, if straight was the natural… then I was straight? Right?
This big thing in my life — in my heart — was nothing to them. Not worth remembering.
Unfortunately, when it comes to creative stuff — the process is slow.
Some people, somewhere, are the lucky one in a billion who can create a masterpiece with no practice or preamble. (Lucky so-and-sos.)
Nope. No such luck.
We have to put the goddamn work in!
We grow and evolve as people, allowing our art or whatever to grow and evolve with us.
(It also means that of my 1300+ blogposts on my personal blog, Dora Reads, relatively few people have read the early ones. Which is good because…they weren’t!)
Nope. That would be uber-embarrassing. (For most of us —…
(Warning: this post contains discussions of homophobia (inc. general queerphobia) and transphobia, in a religious context (it gets a little… controversial))
This happened quite a while ago, but on the off-chance you know who I’m talking about in this post, please leave it be. Myself and this person parted somewhat civilly and I don’t want to stir things up.
I don’t mean to be offensive to Christianity itself in this post, I don’t consider people like this to be genuine Christians.
There are people who hide behind the shield of Christianity in order to spread hatred and bigotry.
I’m not a mental health, psychology, or medical professional — I’m a Welsh girl with a blog.
Just as an example: yours truly has increased Anxiety problems in the heat. I also get increased Depression problems when I’m hot for a long time, mainly because the uncomfortableness just brings my mood down generally.
People can also get a form of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) that’s commonly known as the Summer Blues, or Summer Depression.
I’m just pointing out that it’s especially important for those of us who may be affected the most.
