Attention those of you who I follow!

I am beginning the process of unfollowing many people, due to some reasons I’ll discuss in a minute. I’ve been actively avoiding my dashboard for a while now, and I have decided that this is unacceptable. I am not unfollowing people because I have anything against them, but because it’s damaging for me to read some of their posts.

Here are the reasons I am unfollowing people:

  1. There have been some posts that are triggering to me, even to the point of anxiety attacks. Occasionally, there have been posts that have messed me up for over a day.
  2. There have also been some racist etc. posts, mainly against white people, Americans, and men.
  3. Most of Tumblr’s version of social justice does more harm than good in my life. I usually hear the message “You’re not safe [if you belong in group x].” For some reason, the statistics cited in social justice posts are often taken out of context and/or blown out of proportion, and on rare occasions are outright false. There also seems to be a tendency for this to overlap with the first two reasons.
  4. Some of you may have noticed a solution to all of this: Tumblr Savior. Unfortunately, the version made for my browser (Firefox) refuses to work on my computer, and judging by reviews this is common. Otherwise, I would be blocking tags instead of unfollowing you lovely lot. :(

Once again, I am not doing this because I don’t like you. I love every single one of you, and I wouldn’t have started following you in the first place if I didn’t. I also believe that you have the right to your opinions as well as to what you post on your blogs. I simply react badly to some posts and am unable to stop from seeing them without unfollowing the posters.

The people I follow (including the ones I will be unfollowing) fall into 3 general categories: friends, friendly acquaintances, and sempais. I am not averse to communicating with you, and intend to continue being your friend/friendly acquaintance/admiring kohai. I will also continue to go through some of your tags, so I’ll still like/reblog stuff from you. In other words, this doesn’t have to be the end — but if you want it to be, please let me know and I will respect that.

I will send you a message before unfollowing you, but if you’re still confused or want elaboration, please feel free to message me.

I wish you all the best. <3

Happy Meme Monday, everyone!
After reshki wrote a beautiful post analyzing the miscommunication between Fai and Kurogane in Acid Tokyo, I decided to hilariously misinterpret the nature of Fai&#8217;s misinterpretation of Kurogane&#8217;s attempts to communicate that he cares about him (etc.).

im emotionally compromised ayyyy lmaooo

#fay’s automatic reaction to kurogane saying ”that has nothing to do with me” is to be all ”well obviously!! no one cares about mE”#”im garbage and bad luck!!!”#but OOPS#he went and fell for a dude who cares about him a lot. like so much.#and the reason that kurogane’s all ”that has nothing to do with me”#is because he is so bothered by fay using his past a reason not to get close to people#like ”I DONT CARE ABOUT YOUR PAST HOW ABOUT YOU COME TO THE PRESENT AND BE HERE WITH ME”#hashtag clamp soulmates 
(via clampisms)

#what’s awful is that in fay’s mind his present is one in the same with his past #because bad luck doesn’t just go away and he’s also working for the big bad #so focusing on the present doesn’t help him at all #but kurogane doesn’t know any of that and thinks he’s helping and oh god my heart

Attention followers!

The Tsubasa reread is heading into very spoilery territory. If you don’t want to be spoiled for Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle, please block these tags:

  • Tsubasa spoilers
  • trcreread
  • clamp spoilers

I will be consistently using all three of these tags during the reread from here on out (and have been doing so for a while). Even after the reread ends, I highly recommend blocking #Tsubasa spoilers and/or #clamp spoilers if you’re avoiding spoilers for this series.

I am in the process of adding #Tsubasa spoilers and #clamp spoilers tags for past posts, and am almost finished doing so. Even so, please be careful, as I used to tag things as #Tsubasa spoilers but not #clamp spoilers. This should be all fixed soon (I don’t know if tag-blockers block tags if you’re browsing through my blog, though).

If you want to avoid Tsubasa spoilers but are unable to block tags (if Tumblr Savior etc. don’t work for you), please tell me. I’ll see if I can keep the spoilery posts under a cut/behind a link.

reshki-rereads-clamp:

also I wasn’t going to venture into the 112 confrontation because I’ve been trying to talk about things other than kurofai (FOR ONCE IN MY LIFE HAHAHAHA /rolls under the shame table) but. let me just cry a moment.

during infinity, we see kurogane starting to express the fact that he’s genuinely pissed off about fai’s emotional reticence and attempts to act on his own (and, by extension, at sakura’s similar behaviour, because cool more explicit fai and sakura parallels). kurogane is that guy who watches romcoms and yells “TALK TO EACH OTHER FFS YOU COULD SAVE YOURSELVES FORTY MINUTES OF ANGST IF YOU JUST SAT DOWN AND HAD AN HONEST CONVERSATION”. he dislikes the idea of being locked out of the loop, and he hates the idea that fai is hiding things from him and trying to operate on his own.

THE PROBLEM WITH THAT IS that for kurogane, the confrontation pictured above is communication? he struggles with subtlety and with sincere expression. instead of saying “I want to trust you and I want to keep us all safe and I don’t care what you’ve done in the past so please just go sing the Frozen soundtrack in the shower twelve times or whatever it takes for you to let it go”, he uses physical force and yells “GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER”. I honestly think it’s directly tied to his arc of understanding that strength alone isn’t always the answer - he needs to understand that sometimes, anger and brashness actually just cannot get you anywhere? he’s trying to communicate with fai, but he’s still approaching that communication from entirely the wrong angle.

and we know that his approach doesn’t work with fai because almost directly after this confrontation (srsly it’s their next scene together), fai and kurogane come to the joint realisation that something is going terribly terribly wrong with syaoran. fai’s course of action? the standard ff.net diversionary tactic of hiding the pain in his tortured cerulean orbs behind a mask of icy smiles or whatever, and then his attempt to get syaoran as far away from the building as he can. fai knows exactly what is going to happen, but he cannot tell kurogane for fear of compromising his position, so he tries to deal with the problem on his own.

kurogane is left alone with sakura, darkly muttering about fai, partially because yeah, he wanted in on the mutant worm-hunt, but also because he doesn’t understand fai’s reasons for locking him out of the loop - and fai, in addition to being committed to his primary goal of resurrecting his brother, similarly doesn’t understand that kurogane is genuinely concerned about him, and continues to operate alone? which is why, surprise surprise, arm-grabbing and irritable capslock, despite being a sincere attempt at communication, do not work.

I do find it interesting that a lot of their most significant moments of genuine communication that happen later do actually involve physical violence - fai picks up kurogane’s habit of head-bops in nihon and in clow loop and uses them as a means of emotional expression, which to me is what shows that he’s figured out kurogane’s particular method of communication and has realised that kurogane cares about him. so there’s that too.

So what you are basically saying is that after 6 months in Yama, Fai managed to not pick up even the basics of Kurogane’s language.

So last night I was automatically logged out of Tumblr, and this is what greeted me when I tried to log back in.
