Well, I don't know that.  

Stuff. :D This was supposed to get posted yesterday, but instead I rush-beta'd All Our Yesterdays for eltea, which you should read starting... now. 8D

Aaaaanyway... immediately after I came back from a shower Monday night:

tierfal (10:42:21 PM): {I love reviewers who write "keep it up" as if I owe them something.}
tierfal (10:42:24 PM): {Anyway, how are you? XD}
eltea (10:42:32 PM): {XD!}
eltea (10:42:52 PM): {I love how we're so at home with each other that we start conversations with stuff like that all the time. XD}
tierfal (10:43:02 PM): {:P}
tierfal (10:43:10 PM): {"Hello" is for people who haven't shared a twin bed. XD}
eltea (10:43:20 PM): {XDDDD}


Also, Pink is my hero.

Also also, THIS.

Also also also, I think I've finally succeeded in confusing the hell out of YouTube.

Yes, that's The Lion King crossed over with Pirates of the Caribbean, and then something to do with Singin' in the Rain.

Word. XD

This is your also also also also:

eltea wrote the following in a scene the other day, addressed to a boy who is terrified of what his mother will say if she finds out he just fell in love with his best friend. And... it's just made of so much awesome that I wanted to share it. ♥

Br: (softly) It’s not your mother’s approval you need, Skamett - it’s your own. You wouldn’t be this upset if you were in love with a girl you didn’t think they’d approve of - or if they didn’t approve of this school, or if they didn’t approve of your friends. It might be difficult, but it wouldn’t feel impossible, because you’d know you were right - right to want to marry a girl you loved, right to want to continue at a school you seem to have been gaining so much from, right to want to be friends with the wonderful people you are friends with. If you were deep-down convinced you were in the right, you wouldn’t be so afraid of what your family would think - but they say that nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent, and it’s true. Before you worry about your family’s acceptance, you have to accept yourself. (thoughtfully) I’ve heard a lot of motivational-counselor remarks to the effect of sexuality being something that you can’t change, and the importance of accepting your identity - but I disagree with their approach, because in their haste to comfort you, they’d label you as gay faster than most homophobes would. And maybe you’re not - maybe you’re bi, or maybe you’re making an exception, or maybe it just doesn’t matter. Sexuality is fluid, and you’re young. I’m not going to give you the politically-correct, fatalistic-sounding ultimatum that sexuality is fixed and you’d better accept yours - because those people have the right idea but the wrong message. It’s not important what your sexuality is, or whether it can change - the important part is that it doesn’t need to; if you can, just try to be comfortable with whatever it is and wait for it to settle. (smiles wryly) Sometimes I think that, ironically, the gay pride movement has done more to hurt conflicted young people than it has to help them - because maybe you’re not ready to be proud yet; maybe you don’t like rainbows and the rest of the image; maybe you don’t want strangers telling you that they understand you and you’re just like them. Because you’re not. You’re just you, Skamett, and if you like boys - so what? Don’t let anyone rush you into labeling yourself; you’re first and foremost you. And it is quite possible that you could shove those parts of you away and make them diminish and find a normal life, but what’s going to be the best moment for you if you can make it happen is realizing that, yeah, you could make the feelings go away, but that you don’t have to, and you don’t want to.


I'll have supremely epic picspam for you guys late tonight or tomorrow. Trufax. 8D

eltea's story restricted me! I'd dearly love to read it if someone can allow me access :)

You both are supremely epic together... and lovely... and well the kind of friends that everyone dreams about having.

The community’s default security setting is member-locked, so I couldn’t make it public. D: I’m currently working on figuring out where to post it to show everyone who isn’t a member; I’ll probably stick it in my journal or somewhere within the next day or so. :D

Is there a way for me to join the community?
Eltea: Sunflowerseltea on July 23rd, 2009 05:03 pm (UTC)
Oh, sure, if you’re interested in it. :) Probably just PMing the mod, jdbracknell, and letting her know you found it through me, would work. :D

/follows the thread of the comments pulped_fictions is really well-modded -- very friendly and very unobtrusive, which is great if you are interested in joining. :)

♥ ^^ On the one hand, I think we make people jealous; on the other, a lot of people don't understand what it means to be as we are. XD

Well, firstly, congrats on making YouTube utterly and totally confused. XD That takes sheer skillz, my friend. XD

Secondly, that's some pretty awesome story writing eltea's got goin' on there. XD
Vitamin C: Charles - Bluetierfal on July 23rd, 2009 06:26 pm (UTC)
Skillz indeed! XD Or just the weirdest search history ever. XD

eltea is without a doubt the most outright creative person I know. 8D
marissaabitofadork7 on July 23rd, 2009 06:29 pm (UTC)
It takes a very special person to confuse YouTube so much. XD

Well, some people are just awesome like that, ya know? XD

Okay, so this might sound weird, but I'm completely jealous of what you and Eltea have. It's overwhelmingly adorable. Makes me wish I had tried harder with some of my old friends. ._.;;

And that is possibly the best explanation of sexuality ever. Major props to Miss Eltea. <3
Vitamin C: Mello - Reasonabletierfal on July 23rd, 2009 08:14 pm (UTC)
We... have actually heard that more times than you would think. And hey, I'd be insanely jealous of us. Also, I would never have anything to do with my time. Also, I would feel miserable and alone twenty-four hours a day, which would be sad. XD

And it took us a couple years to realize just how well we clicked -- and it took a collaborative writing project for us to become conjoined -- so you never know who's out there. ^^

♥ indeed! :3

Oh! Story sounds interesting! :D I'll definitely read it! :)

Also, hee! You guys are so cute. :3
