You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment.  People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously.  Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life.  Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day!  So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!!  Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions.  Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it.  With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!

We are right here!!

look at this fragile delicate flower of a man look at how precarious his value and identity is wonder at the marvel that is masculinity

This makes me want to cry blood.
This is a prime example of patriarchy at work. He can’t handle holding a fucking purse for 2 fucking seconds before he has to bust out his “man bag” so he can feel validated by his male peers who are rooting him on for not wanting to be feminine. Is his ego and sense of masculinity so fragile he can’t possibly brush it with the slightest amount of femininity before he crashes and burns??

Not to mention the fact that a symbol of feminity is being equated to a literal piece of shit.

or maybe he just doesn’t want to hold a fucking purse? god fucking damn it.

You’re right. We shouldn’t for anything in the world ever think about why he wouldn’t want to hold a purse, why he would feel it’s reasonable to drop it like it’s radioactive and then treat it both like toxic waste and a shameful secret, or why an audience of men would applaud him for treating it in this way instead of just holding the thing his wife asked him to hold.
Masculinity is too fragile to withstand investigation. We must protect it at all costs.

odditycurator:

this was going to be ‘#15: presents’ but i’m not doing all of these prompts, nor am i doing them in order, so whatever. it made somebody cry so i want to post it, ok

i had to retcon the hell out of things to try to rearrange christmas into something even vaguely setting-appropriate, and i think i mangled everything, so uh don’t look at it too hard i guess

Corvo has never been entirely sure why the Festival of Year’s End involves gifts. There are murmurs here and there, depending upon who he asks, of how it’s an echo of old pagan rituals- presents and offerings given to the Void in thanks for another year of existence. The Overseers frown upon it.

So instead, gifts are given to friends and family and loved ones, and it’s the same all across the Isles. Year’s End in Gristol has some minor differences that take some getting used to, but overall it’s very much similar. Colder, though, as with most things in Gristol. And they adorn their trees- the kind that don’t grow much back home- in a weird way that he thinks must also be a relic of pagan worship. The lights are certainly pretty, though, so he warms up to it soon enough.

He and Jessamine rarely take the gifts very seriously. For his first year at the Tower she gave him a very warm scarf, which did little to stop her from making fun of his shivering. When she was a little older, he gave her perfume, scented like the flowers that used to grow in his mother’s back garden. When they were a little older than that, he found himself suddenly much more concerned about finding the perfect gift for her, but even that eventually faded, partially at her explicit behest that he calm down.

This time, when he is in his mid-twenties and has seen plenty of Year’s Ends at the Tower come and go, she has something more elaborate planned.
