what i hope to be remembered for
thers' a short story in the canon of the 1982 thing (called "the things" iirc) written from the thing's pov and its reaction to the humans is the same level of sheer visceral shocked disgusted horror that the humans react to it with. It was written by a third party for a writing contest and john carpenter liked it so much he made it canon
asked by autistictheon

bogleech:

Oh yes. You would think a story from the Thing’s perspective and explaining almost everything about it would just demystify the whole movie and take away some of the horror, but THE THINGS is absolutely terrifying and enhances the movie for me. I had no idea Carpenter decided it should be canon, that’s wonderful.

Life, although it may only be an accumulation of anguish, is dear to me, and I will defend it.

ask children before you touch them

lumpenspaceproletariat:

celibatesprites:

  • ask children before you hug them
  • ask children before you pick them up
  • if moving a child is unavoidable for their safety, at least warn them first and explain afterwards
  • this applies to disabled children
  • this applies to non- or pre-verbal children, since words are not the only kind of consent or language
  • treat a child as you wish people had treated you

children are people. they will remember you violating their boundaries for their whole lives and it will irreparably damage how they view their worth as people.

don’t teach your kids that they should unquestioningly accept touch no matter what. teach them they deserve respect.

this is a really on-point post. My youngest went through a phase of refusing to hug people and my parents were like, “she’s being rude” etc and i was like “buuut isn’t this actually a fantastic thing for a child esp for a little girl, to be able to tell people NO and assert her own boundaries even if it means risking disapproval??” like really it was awesome and im so proud of her. And really, you can have all the conversations about safety and abuse but the absolute best way to teach your kids about consent is to model it and show them with your own actions that their bodies are their own and NO ONE ELSE, including their family, are entitled to it.

Fuck, my tea.

My handwriting is usually neater, but I’m super shaky with a tablet for some reason.  Also, no lines—that’s a recipe for disaster.

The makers of The Stanley Parable received a brilliant/terrible response to the game, so they created a trailer specifically for that person. It’s called the Raphael trailer.

I’ve only seen a little bit about The Stanley Parable, and where I was interested before I’m dying to play it now.

if you’ve played The Stanley Parable (and even if you haven’t) i urge you to watch it. it’s worth it, trust me.

This is the trailer that made me buy the game
