This is undoubtedly the saddest thing I’ve seen in this show in the longest time. Let me fill you guys in.
When the episode begins we see the gang turn up at the mansion where this Espurr is living. Only, it’s dilapidated, ruinous and seemingly abandoned. Obviously we know Espurr is living there, we’ve seen this sort of thing before. So when the gang turn up and mysterious things happen, this isn’t much of a surprise. But that isn’t what got me. This is when he starts telling his story up there.
You see, Espurr had a very elderly owner. She doted on the little thing. She loved him. But he was very young. He didn’t realise what she had going on. So when her condition worsened she didn’t want to upset the poor guy. So she sent him out to collect flowers so that he wouldn’t need to worry when she passed away. It worked, but when he came back, seeing that house empty? That got me. That brought a tear to my eye.

i feel like we’re all just kind of reblogging it in a circle and looking at each other uneasily like, waiting for someone to finally give in and yell it out in the reply chain
you held out as long as you could, i’m sure.

I SPAT OUT MY WATER ON THE LAST COMMENT FUCK
It’s past 5 am and I’m awake so uh, time for late-night real talk
I see a lot of posts about how to “care for” people with depression and I’m super on board with the good intent behind it but like, for a lot of people depression is a comorbid condition, not a standalone issue, and in those cases the “I will hug you and make you leave the house and ask you to talk about your feelings” solution is a spectacularly bad idea
So like, instead of dealing with all depressed people the same Tumblr-approved way, how about you only take care of your close friends/relatives because you’re more likely to know what they need?
And also yes, ok, people with depression or psychological disorders are not unlovable, it’s good to repeat it, but ending or refusing to get involved in a friendship/relationship with someone because of their mental state is not an ~uneducated~ decision, it’s called “knowing how much you can handle and measuring your involvement accordingly” and it’s perfectly acceptable, so let’s stop guilt-tripping people who don’t have the time or emotional capacity to offer that kind of support ok
Because if you focus too much on the idea that we’re all responsible for the well-being of people with depression (or BPD or dysphoria or you name it) you’ll end up with a good amount of people in emotionally abusive friendships or relationships with people who threaten suicide, which is like, literally the worst
So hey, I think that it’s important for everyone to know that it’s awesome if they can be a supportive friend or family member or significant other, but they should always put their own well-being first

today is bi visibility day. as such, bisexual people will be completely visible for the next 24 hours. this is a bad day to engage in bank heists, ghost impersonations, covert operations for vague yet menacing government agencies, and other common bisexual hobbies that rely upon our powers of invisibility.
reblog to save a life.
There are so many ~famous people~ with misinformed or uneducated public opinions on important shit who also happen to be fucking amazing human beings on a personal level and it hurts my soul a little bit

I feel like sharing the gruesome details: It was one of those thick black tables they have in art studios and science labs. It was loud enough that the teacher raised her head to look, and the guy was too embarrassed to say what happened. He cried a little. I felt invincible—and sometimes, when I think about it, I still do.
Life is full of surprises when you pick on the shy nerd with the anger issues!
