I fucking love the way this movie portrayed anxiety and anxiety attacks (though not necessarily the way other characters reacted to them ((namely the child)) but that’s another story)
tell me anxiety isn’t a big deal when Tony fucking Stark thought he’d been poisoned the first time he had an attack
Don’t even talk to me unless you look like this.
“My younger sister has nonverbal autism. She can speak, but the transitional thought process, I guess you could call it, makes it extremely difficult for her to voice an original thought. She is absolutely in love with Disney movies, especially the classic princesses. She watches them constantly. Disney movies are really the only way she will communicate with us. She repeats the movie lines in accordance with the situation. When she does the dishes, she says “I’m just trying to help my people!” (from Pocahontas, as an example) and uses the various movie lines to communicate with us. Since then I’ve watched every Disney movie I can so I can understand what she is trying to tell me. I will forever be grateful to Disney for allowing my sister to communicate with us, on however fragmented of a level.”
MOD NOTE: Ellie here to say, OP, our sisters are in similar situations (my sister, however, is nonverbal). I’m here to talk whenever you need — sibling to an autistic person to another. :)
Things I will forever be upset about:
1. I don’t know what my Patronus is
2. I don’t know what Amortentia smells like to me
3. I don’t know what I’d see in the Mirror of Erised
4. I don’t know what my Boggart would be
5. I don’t know for sure what house I would be in
6. I don’t know the specifications of my wand are.
You know what hurts a lot?
Lets just assume that this is Rue’s father:
Because he jump-started the uprising, I think we can guess that he was killed on the spot.
In Catching Fire, during the District 11 scene, you see Rue’s family. and guess who’s not there?
