I dunno I like to think of myself as bilingual
it’s starting to become that wonderful time of year where people try to sing both parts of “baby it’s cold outside”
one time I think we sang a duet of this while waiting for class to start, didn’t we, Nia?
during spanish class today we were writing sentences and stuff and this guy tried to write “i have eaten the grass” but he mixed up the word for grass (césped) with another word (huésped)
he ended up writing “i have eaten the guests”
why has he eaten the grass though?
Neville is a perfect example of how one single ingredient in the recipe can either ruin your casserole (or stew, or treacle tart, whatever you like), or utterly perfect your whole dish. Neville is the tide-turner, the shiny hinge. And all because he happens to be in the same position as Wormtail… but makes all the hard choices that Pettigrew refused the first time around. Other characters are in similar positions, but none of them go so far as Neville. None of them prove that the shaping of destiny is all on the individual the way he does.
this has actually just blown my mind
I get frustrated by the centering of parent and sibling experiences and I thought instead of being frustrated I would be better off trying to collect and share the experiences of disabled people growing up with parents and siblings, focusing on how the parents or siblings reacted to their disability, how it affected their relationship, how it affected the disabled person growing up etc. what are good or bad things that happened. mostly focusing on relationships with family members who don’t share the disability but stories about parents and kids with the same disability could be interesting too.
I guess this isn’t really a call for submissions yet because I’m not too sure of the format, but I think it would be a good thing y/y?
PLEASE CALL IT “STRANGLED IN THE ROOTS” I AM BEGGING YOU.
I guess it could just be a zine with a lot of volumes so it doesn’t have to get done at any particular time. okay this is officially a call for submissions.
I would like stories of any length written/drawn/etc. by people with disabilities, about how family members treated them as a disabled person, or supported or didn’t support their needs, and how that affected them. good, bad, or just disappointing.
like, it could be as short as “my dad gave me this great advice about my disability when I was a kid and has always been really supportive” or “my dad made this terrible comment about disability and it made me feel shaky”
or it could be like “here’s a massive and complete history of growing up with my parents and siblings and attitudes toward me and my sister’s and other relatives’ disabilities”
I think I’d probably be biased toward shorter ones, or in between, at least for now. then people could submit again and again instead of trying to write the definitive essay on their relationship with their family.
jeez i would love to order that thing online, but i don’t know what size to order it in because women’s clothing sizes are determined by the alignments of the planets in relation to the fuck you galaxy
