Happy 4th Birthday, Jayla!

My niece’s 4th Birthday was September 30th and if you remember last year’s Avenger’s Tea Party Cake, she has adorably strange taste. This year, she wanted a cake from her new favorite show- Teen Titans Go! 

The figures are all fondant and chocolate, including the little Darksied stuffed animal, baseball and books/comics.

The Burrito couch is made from Our Character Death by Chocolate Cake, both dark chocolate and milk chocolate ganache, mini chocolate chips and chocolate creme’. Yum! 

My mother once told me that trauma is like Lord of the Rings. You go through this crazy, life-altering thing that almost kills you (like say having to drop the one ring into Mount Doom), and that thing by definition cannot possibly be understood by someone who hasn’t gone through it. They can sympathize sure, but they’ll never really know, and more than likely they’ll expect you to move on from the thing fairly quickly. And they can’t be blamed, people are just like that, but that’s not how it works.

Some lucky people are like Sam. They can go straight home, get married, have a whole bunch of curly headed Hobbit babies and pick up their gardening right where they left off, content to forget the whole thing and live out their days in peace. Lots of people however, are like Frodo, and they don’t come home the same person they were when they left, and everything is more horrible and more hard then it ever was before. The old wounds sting and the ghost of the weight of the one ring still weighs heavy on their minds, and they don’t fit in at home anymore, so they get on boats go sailing away to the Undying West to look for the sort of peace that can only come from within. Frodos can’t cope, and most of us are Frodos when we start out.

But if we move past the urge to hide or lash out, my mother always told me, we can become Pippin and Merry. They never ignored what had happened to them, but they were malleable and receptive to change. They became civic leaders and great storytellers; they we able to turn all that fear and anger and grief into narratives that others could delight in and learn from, and they used the skills they had learned in battle to protect their homeland. They were fortified by what had happened to them, they wore it like armor and used it to their advantage.

It is our trauma that turns us into guardians, my mother told me, it is suffering that strengthens our skin and softens our hearts, and if we learn to live with the ghosts of what had been done to us, we just may be able to save others from the same fate.

First time I’ve ever heard the advice, “be more like Pippin.”

(via padnick)

LotR was meant as an analogy for what it was like to go through war and come home, so this metaphor was absolutely intentional on the author’s part.

Sorry accidentally sent that. Just wondering, if you hate men, then why are you a bisexual? Not trying to start an argument, just curious. funnyinternetboi

That’s a fair question. I appreciate the tone in which you asked.
Maybe I can be a man-hating bisexual and still be attracted to men in the same vain that misogynists can be attracted to women.
Thanks for the ask

I’m sick of people saying that feminists are man-hating lesbians

I’m a man-hating bisexual, thank you very much.

That is why no one likes you.

That’s a shame.

I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it.

I’m a man-hating bisexual, thank you very much.
