What if you got the power to talk to animals but it turned out that animals are all aggressively Christian and keep trying to get you to come to youth group
Anonymous said: can you tell us more about autistic simon? I've only ever read about children with autism, so I'm really curious what makes you think that simon may be autistic. or maybe you could recommend something to read on this subject? i don't mean to be rude, i'm just genuinely curious and want to learn. thanks in advance!
I AM SO GLAD YOU ASKED ME THIS I WAS ON MOBILE BUT I GOT OUT OF BED JUST TO ANSWER THIS PROPERLY. I’m gonna stick this under a read more because I have a feeling this might get a little bit long.
Reblogging because I want all of the autistic Simon Monroe posts on my blog <3.
Does anyone ever wonder why Kieren wasn’t buried in a suit like most people, but in a jean jacket and a flannel?
"In a suit like most people" doesn’t necessarily apply to peeps in England <3.
It’s fairly common, at least in the part of England I live in, to bury or cremate people in favourite clothes rather than suits or similar; football fans regularly get buried/cremated in their team t-shirts. You’ll actually notice this in the dance scene background in the second episode of season two - everyone’s been told to wear the clothes they were buried in, and while there are a few more formal outfits here and there, most people are in clothes that are more fitting to their personalities than anything else.
As a general rule, it tends to be a priority over here to bury/cremate people dressed the way their loved ones would like to remember them. Given that Simon had his addictions and so on, it’s safe to say his parents probably didn’t think about who he was as a person as much as how they wanted to remember him, hence him being buried in a suit rather than something more personal.
I feel obliged to note we had my dad cremated in a Jedi bathrobe and if there wasn’t a rule against shoes for a cremation he would have been wearing yoda slippers as well!
Please take one minute out of your day and watch this. It’s the ugly truth.
I hear no lies.
I did not think she would go there but then she did I literally screamed YAAAAAASSSSS BITCH DRAG THEM LIKE YOU’RE TRYNA WALK A CAT
sure star trek: tos can seem pretty hokey when you watch it today but consider this
all those special effects were done without computers
and communicators were essentially flip cell phones. they came up with the idea long before cell phones were invented
PADDs were literally tablets. and the talking computer voice? uh-huh, that’d be siri
it’s freaking incredible. did star trek predict the future of technology or did it influence the future of technology?
#i loved rick so so much but i truly do not think that he was healthy for kieren #because he loved kieren but he couldn’t leave his father’s shadow #and kieren loved rick so that was okay for him #he was okay with just being rick’s secret because he loved rick and rick loved him and that was enough #and amy sees this and it angers her that this beautiful special person is allowing himself to be enamoured by a boy who won’t stand up for him #rick was an important and crucial part of kieren’s life #but he wasn’t healthy #and then my heart goes and breaks for rick who lost his life the moment he decided to change this (x)
