Animal fun fact: Chinchillas can’t get wet. Their fur retains too much water and will start to grow mold. So they bathe by rolling around in dust.

Chinchilla fun fact: Chinchillas have around 20 hairs per follicle; unlike humans who have 2-3 hairs per follicle. Because their fur is so dense, they cannot get fleas or other parasites. The bugs will suffocate in their fur.

Chinchilla fun fact: Petting one of those awesome little guys feels like touching a motherfucking cloud.

Chinchilla fun fact: Their newborn babies are like little pieces of fluffy popcorn. You could easily just toss a handful in your mouth.

Chinchilla fun fact: Don’t toss a handful into your mouth.

…can somebody explain why the RH tag is so active these days?

I wish I knew what sort of black sorcery the RH fandom uses to keep the tag so active and if they’d share some of it with the Negima tag.

Flux, perhaps? :P (and exponentially increasing bad ending headcanons)

You’re welcome for those, BTW. :::DDD

#for what it’s worth i’m pretty sure the answer is ‘catteries’

Guilty as charged. :>

Radiant Historia fandom is just a beautiful place full of great people, full stop <3 It’s really comforting to know that if I ever start to lose interest, you guys will inevitably drag me back in kicking and screaming to have my life ruined again.

"That sounds like the most ridiculously overcomplicated thing— Like, that sounds like something Andrew Hussie would make up as a joke. That could literally be the battle system from Problem Sleuth! Do you also need enough Elf Tears to summon the Weasel King?"

When Madoka fans tell you “You WILL cry! I don’t care who you are!” but then you watch it, particularly episode 10, with a straight face and don’t feel anything.

Okay, I know this picture is supposed to be all sad and dramatic and everything, but honestly it just looks to me like Homura is doing one of those raspberries on Madoka’s stomach.

That needs to be one of those “imagine your OTP” things. Except I’m pretty sure their roles would have to be swapped. Early!Homura would be too shy to do that, and late!Homura too serious. 

[ Image is a screencap of early-timeline Homura slumped over Madoka&#8217;s body in despair&#8212;as mentioned, the pose is amusingly easy to misinterpret. ]

Why Does He Do That? by Lundy Bancroft

pretty much everyone should give this book a shot

I bought read this book recently, and it was a really fascinating, really valuable read! Partially in the sense that I think it’s going to be directly, usefully applicable to my hopefully-upcoming dream career, but also as a general guide for identifying and avoiding abusive patterns.

So, in other news—after an unplanned period of distraction by homework/depression/FE:A, I finally started Knights in the Nightmare last night! … Or, well, for full disclosure, I played the tutorial mission and then the first chapter because I got confused and didn’t know that the game would include tutorials as you played. (Just… just shut up, okay, it was late and I had no one to ask about it.) So I’m very barely actually into the game at all, but hey, very very early initial reactions are go?

(My opinions so far—the gameplay seems tons of fun, the artwork is indescribably gorgeous dear gods, and all the text moves either unreadably fast or excruciatingly slow.)

also, just to be clear, I write these down while I’m playing, not when I post! so if I understand something wrong or ask questions that get answered in the next five minutes, I probably am not still wondering by the time I post. =D; people have been really helpful to me, but you don’t have to feel the need to clarify everything unless I’m clearly actually asking!

"I think one thing you can do to help your friends who are depressed is to reach out to them not in the spirit of helping, but in the spirit of liking them and wanting their company. “I’m here to help if you ever need me” is good to know, but hard to act on, especially when you’re in a dark place. Specific, ongoing, pleasure-based invitations are much easier to absorb. “I’m here. Let’s go to the movies. Or stay in and order takeout and watch some dumb TV.” “I’m having a party, it would be really great if you could come for a little while.” Ask them for help with things you know they are good at and like doing, so there is reciprocity and a way for them to contribute. “Will you come over Sunday and help me clear my closet of unfashionable and unflattering items? I trust your eye.” “Will you read this story I wrote and help me fix the dialogue?” “Want to make dinner together? You chop, I’ll assemble.” “I am going glasses shopping and I need another set of eyes.” Remind yourself why you like this person, and in the process, remind them that they are likable and worth your time and interest.

Talk to the parts of the person that aren’t being eaten by the depression. Make it as easy as possible to make and keep plans, if you have the emotional resources to be the initiator and to meet your friends a little more than halfway. If the person turns down a bunch of invitations in a row because (presumably) they don’t have the energy to be social, respect their autonomy by giving it a month or two and then try again. Keep the invitations simple; “Any chance we could have breakfast Saturday?” > “ARE YOU AVOIDING ME BECAUSE YOU’RE DEPRESSED OR BECAUSE YOU HATE ME I AM ONLY TRYING TO HELP YOU.” “I miss you and I want to see you” > “I’m worried about you.” A depressed person is going to have a shame spiral about how their shame is making them avoid you and how that’s giving them more shame, which is making them avoid you no matter what you do. No need for you to call attention to it. Just keep asking. “I want to see you” “Let’s do this thing.” “If you are feeling low, I understand, and I don’t want to impose on you, but I miss your face. Please come have coffee with me.” “Apology accepted. ApologIES accepted. So. Gelato and Outlander?”"

P.S. A lot of people with depression and other mental illnesses have trouble making decisions or choosing from a bunch of different options. “Wanna get dinner at that pizza place on Tuesday night?” is a LOT easier to answer than “So wanna hang out sometime? What do you want to do?”

Ah, also! I’m terrible at remembering to mention these things, but—the reason I haven’t been around lately is (aside from a bit of a busy couple weeks) I’ve been laptop-less and as a result have done not that much checking things online and very little actually doing things online for the past week or so. I’m going to try to get in the habit of actually mentioning this kind of information instead of limiting it to psychics and/or people I’m in touch with offline, but… yeah, that is where I have been, and quite possibly will be for a bit more. Hope people have been doing well!
