Never Gonna Give You Up - Rick Astley
People who write PTSD as lolzy ‘drinks and hallucinations with a side of temper’ without covering the intrusive thoughts, hypervigilance, insomnia, piconightmares, and above all the awareness you have that you KNOW you’re not right and it’s not really happening but you can’t stop it, you can’t…
Super-dee-duper set from lisathevampireslayer! I’ve always loved the idea of gifsets like this. We’ve “made it” guys!

OKAY, so I tend to think of introversion and extroversion as the source of a person’s energy. While it CAN manifest as extroverted = outgoing and introverted = solitary, how social you are isn’t really what makes you intro/extroverted. An extroverted person derives their energy from their environment - what’s happening around them, people, events. We already know that Nico wasn’t always the type to keep to himself, and I tend to think of Titan’s Curse!Nico as his natural state. He’s characterized as easily excitable, super curious, always talking and asking questions and I think Nico is at his happiest, his most energized, when he’s around other people. His self-imposed isolation is his coping mechanism after the death of his sister, who was pretty much his only support system growing up. It is a reaction to a traumatic event - it is not the way he naturally engages with his environment. I think the biggest tell of his extroversion for me is the simple fact that Nico is miserable when he’s alone, and he seeks out comfort in small physical interactions (with Hazel, the only person he currently feels close enough to to seek them out with) - holding hands, kisses on the cheek. He wants to be alone to avoid getting hurt - not because he prefers to be alone.
I think Leo’s introversion speaks for itself - I’ve always felt that Leo is at his best, his most genuine, when he’s alone and working on a piece of machinery. He can isolate himself for days on end and tinker with engineering issues and emerge fully recharged afterwards. Leo doesn’t really take in or think about the people around him much, and frankly his interactions with them are often one-sided, with him cracking a joke and them playing it off. All of his energy comes from himself. I’m an introverted person myself and I can be perfectly happy not leaving my room for weeks as long as I have a project to immerse myself in - I feel like Leo is pretty much the same.
+1ing this. So dead on.

that’s almost too cruel
I had to do this once with Privateer II: The Darkening. It gained a bit when he said “I bet you didn’t play it through, I bet somebody just told you how…” and I was able to smile gently and say “God, possibly, since I wrote the game.” And plainly the Deity was with me that day, as I happened to be carrying docs from my UK agent (who’d done the deal) that showed not only that I was the writer, but the five-figure sum I had been paid. …It was a happy day for me. Not so much for him. I’d never had a referent for the word “slink” for a full grown male before. As in “slink away in utter dejection.” I smiled for at least three days without stopping. And am smiling now… I had completely forgotten about this.
Reblogging because “I beat the game” is fantastic, but “I wrote the damn thing” is even better.
I’m not a gamer but I’ll always reblog these.
I don’t have chronic pain but this artwork is so nice to look at *^*
Just because we’re not writhing on the floor doesn’t mean we’re not hurting. We’ve just gotten really good at hiding it and functioning with it, otherwise we’d literally starve in our beds.
This hits a bit too close to home.
