Help Us Escape an Abusive Household 

tumblkage:

I’m too much of a wreck to make this wholly comprehensive right now, but if you follow me you’ll know that we were unable to find a place to live so we [my Mother and I] had to move in with my Grandmother [who has been letting my Aunt stay here for about 15 years???]
If you follow me you also know that my Aunt is a volatile, violent abuser who has attacked us our entire lives.
Well, about half an hour ago, she started yelling at me after I said that ‘You do realise I can hear you, right’ when she called me a ‘cunt’ as I left the room.
I told my Mother about this as I went back upstairs with the bagel I had been making for her and my Mother went downstairs to make her tea.
My Aunt proceeded to scream at my Mother and then physically attack her as evidenced by a little of the aftermath that I will link to in a gallery. For a short rundown: She shoved my Mother, grabbed her by her shoulders and scratched up her arms, and pulled out a small chunk of my Mother’s hair all while screaming.


My Grandmother refuses to deal with any of this, of course since to acknowledge it would be embarrassing and shameful to ‘the family’.


This is not a family, this is a toxic enviroment and I. Want. Us. Out.


Please donate whatever you can and/or share however you can with whomsoever you can. We need money for moving vans [remarkably expensive], 6 weeks deposit on a new place, first month’s utilities for the new place, and first month’s rent for the new place.

We need to leave.

—Things I can add on Tumblr include:

  • I’m queer. I’m very very queer. This is an Orthodox household. You do the math.
  • This is a very very Jewish Zionist household. My Mother and I are Anti-Zionist. You, again, do the math.

More details about Disney’s Moana

Walt Disney Animation Studios revealed plans today for Moana, a sweeping, CG-animated comedy-adventure about a spirited teenager on an impossible mission to fulfill her ancestors’ quest. In theaters in late 2016, the film is directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, The Princess and the Frog, Aladdin).
In the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania, Moana, a born navigator, sets sail in search of a fabled island. During her incredible journey, she teams up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, to traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and ancient folklore.
“John and I have partnered on so many films—from The Little Mermaid to Aladdin to The Princess and the Frog,” said Clements. “Creating Moana is one of the great thrills of our career. It’s a big adventure set in this beautiful world of Oceania.”
“Moana is indomitable, passionate and a dreamer with a unique connection to the ocean itself,” Musker said. “She’s the kind of character we all root for, and we can’t wait to introduce her to audiences.”

Dragon of the West. — “It’s more of a demonstration, really.” 

Okay but Ellekai and Sabine laughing and eating salads (and basically snarking the paint off the walls) is a perennial favorite headcanon.

rprambles Asked

CADEM BANE

image

1. The color of their eyes.

Very dark brown; difficult to distinguish iris from pupil at times.

2. How old they are.

32 - 34 ish during the events of the main game.

3. One strange thing/quirk/defining characteristic of their body or physical appearance.

The most glaringly obvious thing about Cadem is the nasty set of scars raking across the right side of his face and neck.  His entire body is covered in a mess of wartime damage and dueling wounds that healed weirdly or wrong.  The ones on his face so transformed his appearance that those who met him as a young jedi in the Great Galactic War often fail to recognize him.  Or maybe that’s more due to the change in his expressions.

4. One strange thing/quirk/defining characteristic of their personality

Cadem is a grumpy hardass son of a hutt, or so he likes to pretend.  The grumpiness is real, at least.  He has a grim sense of humor and an extremely ruthless, pragmatic combat style, and doesn’t exactly follow jedi ideals about the preservation of life.  However, around certain friends and found family members, he can be playful, devoted, and kind.  It takes a lot of effort and a specific set of circumstances to get him to relax in that way.

5. How their parents met.

Arin and Emilee met when she joined their small Mantellian farming community as the new schoolteacher.  The local all-purpose mechanic and fix-it man, he picked wildflowers for her and, too shy to give them to her, hid them in a new spot around her classroom every time she needed repairs done. Eventually she caught him at it, and asked him if he might want to get a meal sometime.

6. Who their first love was, and why they loved them

Cadem had a bit of a crush on childhood friend and fellow padawan Jazz, but he was so terrified of breaking the code [he already knew he had issues with anger and attachment] that he never breathed a word of it. The first time he ever fell hard and actually admitted it, the lady in question was the beautiful but icy and distant Guileta Luz.

7. How/why I came up with the concept for them

He basically popped fully formed into my head as a vigilantee ex-jedi with anger issues, scars, gallows humor and a drinking problem.

8. Who they eventually end up with

Tahiri Signas, smuggler queen of the stars and of his heart.  They couldn’t possibly be more different, and yet sometimes he thinks they were made for each other.  She picks the target, he pulls the trigger.  Well.  Ignites the lightsaber.  Through their chest.  You get the picture.

9. Their favorite animal.

Not a big animal person, but probably something large/rough-and-tumble over something small and yappy.
