    that's also a thing with the doctor/master ship, at least when the missy incarnation of the master isn't involved (in that case, it is less of a case of splitting hairs than usual)
    like... time lords being agender or whatever is cool (which btw, is eu canon, not tv canon so... it depends on whether one wants to use that part of it or not)
    but when the doctor and the master are both being male-presenting and using male titles/pronouns/whatever, saying it is a male/male pairing should be alright, even if they are agender
    so yeah... no practical difference

    hmmm things that are annoying me recently...

    i have a pretty extreme sensitivity to sound, and whenever i try to talk to my mom about what i can do to cope in public, she tells me i'm being impractical. i'd really rather get weird looks for wearing big headphones in public than have a huge embarrassing meltdown and then people try to touch me and ask what's wrong over and over. she keeps telling me i'm overreacting though and that i "wouldn't do that because i know better." like i can control it. sorry that got really bitter really fast, i'll put it under a spoiler.

    Dude, that sounds mega sucky. Also, weird. How is wearing headphones impractical? I mean, the only reason i could think of is if you have to go out and buy some, but they can't be that expensive. I looked some up a few weeks ago and found a cheap pair under thirty dollars.

    i think it's only impractical in the way that it would make her "look bad". i already have a pretty nice pair a la my brother, who i can't thank enough, she just won't let me wear them in public. i don't wanna get too into it on the general chatter part of the forum though, it doesn't really belong here.

    writing dialogue in fic is hard, editing is hard, and finding a nice point to end a fic is hard.

    I get paid to translate documents into English, particularly by this NGO. Often, this is hard as there is a serious amount of vocabulary and expressions I don't quite grasp, since it isn't my field and I'm still learning the equivalent legal terms in both Spanish and English.

    Nothing, however, nothing, kills me as fast as the horrifying passive voice in these improperly written reports. I almost want to offer my services to edit them in Spanish, but I am not quite masochistic enough.

    my ride home for spring break fell through, so i have to wait till may to see my parental units
    i guess on the bright side, I'm visiting a friend i haven't been able to hang with in a while instead, and the rest of the week I am working.
    which gives me money and good karma, because we'd be short at work otherwise

    and now he has to go see his granny whom he fucking hates anyway and then go back to his uni so once again we won't be able to talk until the evening and i'm frustrated and angry and restless so i'm not even going to be able to fill the space with anything productive and i'm so lonely but i don't want to go sit with my family i want my friends, i want my boyfriend, i want my own damn life back like i had when i was living at uni but i'm not going to get it

    I'm stuck in a rut and on the edge of tears, and I'm just distracting myself from doing chores that need to be done, and all I want to do is sleep. But every time I've been to sleep over the past week, I have had horrific triggery nightmares that mess with my head for hours after I wake up. I might have to take a sleeping pill and hope for the best at this rate.

    Due to NT social protocol, I can't go to bed until mum comes home and introduces me to the person who will be staying with us for the next week. It is getting late. I have no spoons. I also haven't made any food because she said she would bring some home, and after cleaning all day I no longer have the capability to make a sandwich :(

    There's a pimple breaking out on my nose and I forgot to charge my iPod so I left it at home (this is the second time I comment in this thread, and the first one was also about leaving my iPod at home, because not having music on the go is SERIOUSLY ANNOYING to me)

    Militant vegans. As someone who has lived off of 5 to 10 euros per week for food, no, cheap food is not vegan. Fruit and vegetables, which are essential to be either vegan or vegetarian, were a treat. Mostly I lived off of noodles, rice, and milk. This was not good for my health, nor was it vegan. (aside from the fact that I have cats, and had to buy meat in the form of catfood for them)

    Also cooking and shopping cost me enough spoons without adding unnecessary dietary restrictions.

    The home button thing on my ipod got stuck and I cant fix it; granted there's a touchscreen alternative I can equip from the settings, but its odd getting used to. Muscle memory and all that.

    BPD anon Here I sit, broken hearted

    The Homestuck fandom's mischaracterization of Nepeta, and the Homestuck fandom's mischaracterization of the Homestuck fandom's mischaracterization of Nepeta.

    When I first entered the fandom, I didn't read any fic. I lurked the MSPA forums, followed a few BNFs and regular-level fans, and browsed unpopular-homestuck-opinions. Every other post it seemed was about how Nepeta is totally not weak, she kills animals with her bare hands, stop writing a weak Nepeta. So I figured "portraying Nepeta as super weak" was a giant problem along the lines of making Karkat say "fuckass" all the time.

    Then I started actually reading fics and looking at a bunch of fanart, and I saw the complete opposite. Nepeta as a hyper-muscled Rambo who don't give a fuck and doesn't do anything but hunt animals is the most common Nepeta interpretation I see. She mentions her hunting about as much as Gamzee plays with his unicycle. Imagine if there were thousands of posts about how everybody forgets Gamzee rides a unicycle and every fanart with Gamzee on a unicycle got comments along the lines of "finally, an accurate characterization of Gamzee" and every single fic had Gamzee on his unicycle the entire time.

    Like, why? Why would everybody exaggerate Nepeta in one way and then complain about how everybody exaggerates Nepeta in the complete opposite way?

    I think that may be a genuine change-over-time-in-fandom thing, depending on when you first got into the fandom.
    I remember when I first got into Homestuck and was lurking the forums, around new years 2011, the "diabeetus"/cutsey interpretation of Nepeta was a lot more common.
