A few things I've been thinking about lately:

1. I'm writing a character who is gay, and already has a love interest. I sort of ship him with this other guy, also, and I'm okay with that. I've sort of started to ship him with this other girl, though, too, and THAT bothers me. Double standard?

2. It needs to be summer. Now.

3. Sometimes I really wish I was an atheist. Or at least something other than the sort of Christian I am. Because I don't know how to reconcile "standing up for yourself," which I rationally should do, and "loving/forgiving those that persecute you," which is what I spiritually (?) should do, and it's really starting to mess up my life.

4. Final Fantasy VIII is a tremendously fun game. I'd forgotten this. And I actually rather like Rinoa, go figure.

5. I want a job that pays better.

6. Next year I will be turning 25 on the 25th. I need to start planning. The numbers only line up like that once.

7. I love this song.

although I think he (the character I'm shipping with everyone) is absolutely the only one who would enjoy an ot4, I think the others would all kill each other.

ahahahah you're welcome

1) Doesn't seem that way necessarily; is it more of a "can't ship with other people!!" kneejerk or a "straightening a gay character argh!!" one?

3) :( *hugs*

4) yeeeesssss Actually wait how are you playing it, don't I have your copy?

1. The latter I think. Because, I mean, I don't mind shipping him with this other GUY; then again maybe it's because the other guy is less of a threat to my OTP, since he's abusive and crap, whereas the girl is actually, like, they have chemistry and actual stuff in common etc etc please don't let me become one of Those Shippers.

3. *hugs back* &hearts

4. :D :D :D IT IS ON MY PSP :D :D :D

#1 of course, because the media has taught you that bisexuality doesn't exist ;) I'd be bothered if I started seeing unicorns too!

#3 The problem for me was how love is being conceptualized. I think of it in two ways - 1. enabling isn't love, so standing up to your father when he's an alcoholic who is starting another night of drinking could be love. 2. The Christian conception of love should be about everyone, so that def. includes you, and that self-love is an important part of the foundation of loving others (this is non-Christian theory now, more like compassion in Buddhism, etc). tldr; if you're not standing up for yourself out of revenge/showing them up, etc. but because you are maintaining personal boundaries or trying to do good, then those two things don't have to be separate. BUT THAT'S JUST MY TAKE!

#6 You're my age until the 25th! :P

#7 *downloads*

1. Lol I identified as bi for several years--I still do SORT OF but it's easier to just say I like girls, then I don't have to explain that I mostly like girls but occasionally (VERY RARELY) I find myself saying "I would hit that" re: someone of the male persuasion.

And I have some bi characters, I just...really didn't think he was one of them. I hate it when they do that to me. :P

3. THIS IS A GOOD TAKE!! No, seriously, thank you, that does help. &hearts

6. WELL ACTUALLY this year I'll be turning 24, it is next year that I must plan for. Unless that was what you meant. In which case yay age twins :D

7. spread the love~!

1. Huh, now I wish I had more sexually fluid characters, though I tend to be a bit 'you go with you, and then you go with you', and I haven't developed many original characters. Something to think about.

6. I am 24 as of December, so soon we will be age twins!

7. Haha, I love it!
