i write a journal but it's bland, just a pale brown hardcover notebook with a band with writings worth 4 years in it (and some tear stains lmao) and you know how there are those cute and pretty journal photos in here and on instagram? especially the ones with doodles? yeah i only know how to draw sticks or convince a friend who can draw but i tried drawing myself with a headache and it was so ugly, im never drawing on my journal ever again
I feel like a general rule of thumb should be that with the 5th May stream, aka the tour stream, most of what Alivebur said can't be trusted.
He was still newly revived, still all over the place, not quite settled. And while he was being truthful with some things - like apologies, which he's been doing since then, so those are truthful - he was lying about other things - like him saying he didn't care for L'Manberg when he does.
In the 5th May stream, he was still closed off too, of course he's not gonna tell the truth about things he thinks people could use against him.
But ever since then we've watched Alivebur get settled, we've watched him calm, and we've watched him open up more and more. He even said that lying to Tommy about L'Manberg was eating away at him.
Trust more in what Alivebur's been saying for the last 3 streams than what he said when he was still overwhelmed from being revived only 6 days prior.
Can’t tell if the scene I wrote this morning is the most painful thing I’ve ever written, or the most sappy. Why are these things so indistinguishable.

Every Brainia Scene Ever: 6x01 [1/5]
did i just create a page for my most simped fictional character for every month? yes, i did 😌
If I have any followers who've ever had a biopsy done before, is there any chance any of you would be able to like. Maybe calm my nerves about this whole thing? Perhaps specifically about the biopsy clips. I'm kinda afraid of them putting metal in me to mark the spot since I'm sensitive to metals and stuff and I don't wanna have a piece of metal in me the rest of my life if I react badly to it.
Let me start this off by saying that Cinderella is my favorite Disney princess and that the 1950 adaptation is my favorite Disney animation classic.
I would also like to say that while I haven’t really followed with Camila Cabello after her Havana era, I still like her music and I don’t really like or dislike her. She’s an alright singer that I can vibe to when her songs play on the radio.
That said, I can confidently say that I watched almost every single Cinderella adaptations there is. What can I say- it’s my favorite story. (yes, even the original Grimm story)
I actually only watched the trailer for Camila’s Cinderella just now (I think it released three days ago or sum) and I know I shouldn’t judge off by the trailer but it’s pretty much telling of what the story was going to be.
And I don’t like it.
I hated the things I saw there, and I’m going to rant about it.
Before that though, let me give credit where credit is due and say that it’s surprisingly more diverse and “modern”, if you will.
I really like the change on the fairy godmother and the soundtrack doesn’t sound too bad.
And I can see that they’re really attempting to make Cinderella some kind of feminist by teasing the conflict of the story as her aspiring to be a businesswoman.
And that’s where my center conflict with this film lies.
I really hate how some feminists say Cinderella is a bad role model for kids (going on to not allowing their children to watch the movie) and a total “pushover”.
I hate that so much because not only is it dismissing the extent of Cinderella’s trauma, but it’s also pushing “strong” into this particular box where you’re only perceived as such if you speak out and act out.
And that couldn’t be more wrong.
Cinderella is one, if not, the strongest Disney princess I’ve ever watched. I have and will fight anything and anyone that disagrees with this.
The thing I really appreciated about Cinderella is her central theme- the kindness that she uses as a response and coping mechanism all throughout the story.
This girl has gone through so much shit and she could easily act like the little shit that no one will blame her for but she doesn’t.
She’s kind, generous, and hopeful. The fact that she remained positive throughout everything she went through is so admirable and so freaking strong.
And the thing is, Cinderella can’t exactly act out. Acting out is fighting with her stepmother and the bigger the fight might end with her sleeping on the streets. It is a matter of practicality.
By saying that Cinderella isn’t strong and that she was a pushover for taking all the abuse her stepfamily does to her instead of marching up and leaving is the same as dismissing all those kids out there gritting through their teeth and taking in all the hurt from their abusive households because they need a roof over their heads.
Because sometimes, even if it hurts, we have to be practical.
Not everyone has the privilege to fight against abuse. If you do, I’m happy for you but saying Cinderella is a weak-ass lame-o just because she couldn’t do the same is outright victim-blaming.
Questioning why she doesn’t speak out or just leave is straight down just that- awful.
Cinderella, for me, is strong in the sense that she remained strong through that.
Her stepfamily did horrible things to her and for her to remain just as kind even after that is such a power move.
Because again, no one can blame her if she acts like a total asshole but she didn’t- she’s kind as ever and that’s just something I aspired to be when I watched the film back at high school.
Watching Cinderella was realizing that there was so much to strong than being loud and active.
Like yes, strong is voicing out everything for the world to hear.
But strong can also be silent and persistent and just that- just Cinderella.
Not every female lead has to have that loud voice and sparkles to be called strong. Some can be just kind even after all that bullshit and be that- strong.
The trailer where they show Cinderella having this conflict of not wanting to be a princess because she wants to be a businesswoman, it’s fine but I think it generally erases all the things the original Cinderella stand for.
And I will not stand for that.
Because those “dainty” princesses can be strong as well.
The trailer pushes this #girlboss idea and again, it’s totally fine if you’re pushing for a woman to be out and on top of a predominantly male field (cool even)-
but using it on a context frame as Cinderella, this is also pushing girls into one box-
and I’m not sure if I made my point across but there is so much more to strength than rebelling and being sassy.
There are many layers to it and dismissing those other layers kinda rubs me off in the wrong way.
Then there’s the whole debacle about her marrying the prince and becoming a princess and living her HEA but that’s an entirely different can of worms that I don’t really want to open.
By making Cinderella into this #girlboss, it just doesn’t seem right to me.
I have no qualms with Camila playing the lead or James Corden being in another musical for the umpteenth time, I couldn’t care less about the cast.
But I do care about the story because as someone who adores Cinderella a little too much-
I just think the trailer misses the mark and central message the original Disney classic is putting out.
And that is that in kindness there is strength, and if you wish for something and work your ass hard enough, then your dreams will come true.
At any given moment I am thinking about: her
i don't think i ever wanna be in love again

hot take crisis on infinite earths was kinda stupid
Genocide route but make it kinda funny.
you are so valuable
obviously a far future goal but all i want is a life where every time i see someone or something to donate to to be able to give something
I’m freeform knitting mittens it’s all jazz baby, are they gonna end up good or matching at all?? Fuck no but they will be MY mittens to lose in the snow for increasingly larger animals to tunnel into
all 3 kits have long fur <3
tadpole and hawk remain unchanged, because i choose to believe in mistyfoot with one white paw or something. a lot of her early comic art has her with a lot of white, and i think it's kind of cute.
so tadpole is still all black. he's got long fur, and he's easily the largest. he's about the same size as stonefur, who's the largest cat in riverclan.
hawkfrost is identical to color in tigerstar. and in stripes. he's the skinniest. very muscles tho. he retains his white belly, and one white paw.
mothwing is the biggest change. she's fawn mackerel tabby bicolour bc i believe that adding white to cats only improves their design. she's the middle child for size. she's shorter than hawkfrost, but broader.
