Challenge #02715-G158: A Delicate Mist

"They played us like a violin!”

“Actually violins are quite difficult to play, I played you like the cheap kazoo you are" -- Anon Guest

There is a vertiginous feeling to being betrayed. It's worse than falling because the damage has been done before the sinking of the heart even begins. It's the realisation that kills. It kills trust. It kills faith. It kills hope. Once those are dead, there is very little left to lose.

Nevertheless, there are those who insist on twisting the knife whilst their victim is down. This one smiled indulgently as their victim said, "You played me like a violin." They believed their victim to be powerless and vulnerable. Ready to break in an instant. All they needed, the villain reasoned, was one final push to fall apart.

"My dear," they said with the same fake adoration they had used all the time. "Violins are troublesome instruments to learn and play. I played you like the cheap kazoo you are."

The victim had nothing left to lose. With nothing to lose, there was nothing to fear. They did still possess a weapon and as their heart fell to breaking, they lashed out.

Challenge #02547-F357: Now There Be Dragons

Waking up in the forest with a splitting headache, they realized something hit the car at tremendous speed. They awakened to finding in their lap a large, greenish-blue, egg. They had no idea where it came from but they carefully held it while scrambling out of the car and fleeing into the forest. They'd smashed the cell phone they'd been forced to carry, stolen the car, and fled from their very abusive foster-parents knowing that the foster-mother had probably called the cops

Challenge #02194-E365: Won Family by Combat

It's the nice, sweet, quiet ones that never argue that you should be afraid of. -- Anon Guest

They thought the Human was docile. Quiet and apologetic, they assumed that they had been 'trained'. The Human certainly acted that way. Always eager to please. Always nice to the point of being excruciating. They thought that Human Zie would never be violent.

They were wrong.

The thing about Humans is - even the soppiest milquetoast has their line in the sand. The point

Police Officer Allegedly Shackled Elementary School Students With ADHD

think-progress:

A federal lawsuit out of Kentucky has placed law enforcement in the
spotlight once again, raising concerns about overzealous disciplinary
policies carried out against special-needs students when they commit
minor infractions.

That is a hellishly uncomfortable position to be in - even if you’re hyper-mobile. This is fucking abuse.

amandasucks:

If you’re a girl and you hit, punch, or physically harm your boyfriend in any way it’s still considered abuse and you’re equally as much of a piece of shit as any guy that hits his girlfriend. Seriously the amount of girls that disagree with this is ridiculous, and they’re all fucking stupid. Sorry not sorry.

An appeal

My best beloved loves the Twilight movies. They have never touched the books.

Same SO does not immediately believe my own arguments about why the whole series is so fucking toxic to both genders, but young girls in particular.

We are parents of a young girl.

What I would like is links to places that specifically tear down the ‘abuse apologism’ of the movies and only the movies, because apparently anything that mentions the books renders said arguments null and
