Ok, really this is mostly Sherlock.
Also featuring Dr Who, Whedonverse, BSG, Harry Potter, Star Trek (TNG and reboot mostly), Supernatural, and a dash of feminism.
Oh the universe out there is frightful
But starfleet is so delightful
And since there’s millions of aliens to know
boldly go, boldly go, boldly go.

Yes this is me!!!
I see things like this, and I’m always scared to read/watch them because I’m sure none of it will apply to me and it will be proof that I don’t really have ADHD.
Heh, nope, like 2/3 of them apply to me hardcore. Even the breaking off in the middle of the sentence half-joking one. And I couldn’t really pay attention through the whole freestyle part, I kinda muted my computer and zoned out.
holy shit there is a name for it
Well damn. Explains a lot.
Suddenly I understand some of my fan base a LOT better. That is Awesome.
"holy shit there is a name for it" was my reaction before I even scrolled down to the comments.
I just need to keep reblogging this because I cannot even begin to tell you how profound a feeling of YES and THIS and THERE IS A WORD FOR ME OMG I get every time I see this, and I hope it helps others too.
seriously, anytime you see a post with a comment saying “theres a name for it?!” reblog that post because even if it doesnt apply to you any of your followers could be waiting for that revelation.
i know being mentally ill (or otherwise disabled, but i’m speaking only from personal experience here) can make you feel like a really high-maintenance partner, and i know it can feel like you’re repetitive or self-absorbed or demanding or whatever, but i just wanna say: you deserve attention, and you deserve to talk about your problems, and you deserve to have your needs met, and the people in your life who love you understand these things. you are not a burden, you are a person who your loved ones have chosen to care about, and part of that means respecting that you have different needs than non-disabled people do. you’re good and important and you are not doing a bad thing by being yourself

This whole conversation has kept me riveted all day.
I know, right? It’s actually been really distracting for me. I did not get work done today. Ugh.

This is like the sweetest thing anyone on tumblr has ever said. :)
You know what I shipped when I was a teenaged girl, confused about her sexuality and desires?
Jack and Rose. (From Titanic, not Doctor Who, in case younger readers are confused.). The most traditional, mainstream het ship that ever sailed, and I shipped them so hard.
And then (God help me) Rafe/Evelyn from Pearl Harbour (I know I know I know. I was fourteen. Don’t judge me!)
What were your teenage ships?
This is an awesome game.
David/Maddie in Moonlighting, and the Mary Sue self-insert role I gave myself was … their daughter.
Also Han/Leia like whoa.
Of course I had no internet and had no idea what shipping was but all I knew was that I liked thinking about different stories about them and hid anything I wrote in the secretest, deepest, darkest places I could imagine because I thought I was a freak.
Ooh! Let’s see… My first ship was definitely Brad/Ted on Hey Dude (not slash, Brad is a girl) I was probably like 11? Right as I myself was discovering that boys are cute and Ted was cute. I also kinda shipped Clarissa/Sam, but they make such a good bromance I didn’t ship it too hard.
In high school, I shipped Data/my Mary Sue self-insert in the feature-length fanfilm I had in my head. If I’d known fanfic was a thing, I totally would have written a novel.
I’m not sure I really had too many other ships in high school. I didn’t watch a whole lot of TV then (once TNG went off the air), and I don’t think I ever got invested enough in any movie to actually ship the characters. I watched Soap reruns on Comedy Central, and I think I might have shipped some characters on there, but I don’t really remember who was who.
Teenager from India invents device that can convert breath to speech
A high school student from India has invented a device that can convert a person’s breath into speech, to give millions of people around the world suffering from speech impediment a ‘voice’ for the first time.
Sixteen-year-old Arsh Shah Dilbagi has developed a new technology called ‘TALK’, which is a cheap and portable device to help people who are physically incapable of speaking express themselves. Right now, 1.4 percent of the world’s population has very limited or no speech, due to conditions such as Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), locked-in syndrome (LIS), Encephalopathy (SEM), Parkinson’s disease, and paralysis.
His name is Arsh Shah Dilbagi and he’s 16 years old. Gettin tired of sensationalized “mystery baby from a country where people are brown does a science thing!” articles. Use peoples names, don’t act so surprised when people of color are geniuses.
This is brilliant!
Ok, my BIL just told me that we will never agree because he’s coming at this from the perspective of a “gamer who loves games” and I’m coming at this from the perspective of feminism.
Wrong thing to say to someone who has considered themselves a gamer since age 8 or 9, and who has put up with immense amounts of bullshit in that time because I’m not a “real gamer” or a “hardcore gamer” just because I like Nintendo and cartoony games rather than FPS.
Oh oh oh, now he says that okay I’m a gamer, I’m just not arguing from the standpoint of a gamer. Because apparently just being a gamer isn’t enough for my opinions to be the standpoint of a gamer. I can’t even.
