prick your finger on a spinning wheel
but don’t make a sound
a drop of blood and now you’re taken
for all time
with a kiss you will awaken
and you’ll be mine
you’ll be mine
you’ll be mine

Length: 4,121

Rating: PG-13

Summary: Kurt is the alpha of his pack of werewolves and lord of his woodland hall. Little does he expect his life to change in the form of a terrified and scrawny runaway wolf. For the Klaine Bingo prompt “mates.”

Warnings: D/s mostly based around alpha/omega bond, briefest mention of murder.

AO3

Before it all started, Kurt used to love the chilly descent into fall, the shortening days and increase in opportunities to dress in as many layers as possible. He was cold-blooded, and relished the turning of the seasons and the arrival of winter.

But that was before he had been integrated into the pack. Before his father had announced him as his successor. Before his first turning.

Now, the arrival of November means chopping wood and salting meat and digging up the last vegetables for the winter, preparing the huge wooden hall where the pack resides for the certain snowstorms and freezing drafts that ravage the area come December. It means less woodland animals around to hunt, less berries on the trees, fewer trips to the town on the far side of the forest. Now fall means long, gruelling days and a chill settling deep in his bones.

The first morning arrives when Kurt wakes up and there is snow outside the window. He pulls on a pair of thick hide leggings and fur-lined coat and goes out to start the day.

Police in Ferguson committed human rights abuses: Amnesty report

By Carey Gillam

(Reuters) - Police in Ferguson, Missouri, committed human rights abuses as they sought to quell mostly peaceful protests that erupted after an officer killed an unarmed black teenager, an international human rights organization said in a report released on Friday.

The Amnesty International report said law enforcement officers should be investigated by U.S. authorities for the abuses, which occurred during weeks of racially charged protests that erupted after white Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed Michael Brown, 18, on Aug. 9.

The use by law enforcement of rubber bullets, tear gas and heavy military equipment and restrictions placed on peaceful protesters all violated international standards, the group said.

Amnesty said it sent a delegation to Ferguson from Aug. 14-22 to monitor the situation.

When asked about the allegations, Brian Schellman, a spokesman for the St. Louis County Police Department, which helped oversee law enforcement operations in Ferguson, said police “had one mission, and that was the preservation of life.”

The report also criticizes a Missouri law that the group said may be unconstitutional because it allows police to use deadly force against someone even if there is no imminent threat of harm.

The report calls on state lawmakers to make Missouri law comply with international standards making lethal force by police a last resort, said Rachel Ward, director of research at Amnesty International.

"Lethal force is only to be used to protect life when there is an immediate threat," Ward said. "The Missouri statute goes far beyond that. It is of grave concern."

Amnesty cited a Missouri statute that says a police officer may use deadly force “in effecting an arrest or in preventing an escape from custody” when that officer “reasonably believes that such use of deadly force is immediately necessary to effect the arrest and also reasonably believes that the person to be arrested … has committed or attempted to commit a felony.”

A grand jury in St. Louis County is weighing whether or not Wilson should be charged in Brown’s death. Wilson has not spoken publicly about the incident.

The Justice Department is investigating Brown’s killing and the Ferguson Police Department.

Witnesses and law enforcement officials have said Brown and Wilson got into an altercation after Wilson told Brown to stop walking down the middle of a street. Wilson shot Brown six times. Some witnesses have said Brown had his hands up in surrender when the last shots were fired.

"Michael Brown was unarmed and thus unlikely to have presented a serious threat to the life of the police officer," the report said.

Hi. So when I was 18, and 20, and 22, I did not vote.

I was really scared of voting.

I’m always kind of overwhelmed by new situations, and voting seemed truly terrifying: 1. There are strangers there; 2. I wasn’t sure if some of those strangers would try to keep me from voting; 3. I might have to stand in line; 4. the voting machines would be scary and weird; 5. I knew the basics of who I wanted to vote for, but I didn’t know a lot about the ballot initiatives, many of which—when I would consult sample ballots—seemed to be intentionally obtuse.

Basically, I fell into this obsessive thought spiral and it felt like the only way out of all my anxiety and fear was just not to vote, and so I didn’t, because not voting is pretty easy.

This happens to me all the time, even about very little things: Like, every day I have to take this pill in order to be overall less inclined toward obsessive thought spirals, and some days it becomes incredibly hard to take the pill, because not taking the pill is technically easier, and my brain cycles through all these terrible possible outcomes associated with taking the pill, like how I will have to swallow and what if the pill gets stuck in my esophagus and also I will have to drink something, and what if the tap water I drink contains salmonella and etc.

Voting is different from taking your medicine, but I think maybe some of the time when people say “My vote won’t count anyway,” or “I don’t feel informed enough to vote,” or whatever they say, what they’re really saying is, “Everything in my regular everyday life is challenging and hard enough without having to add this weird unknown voting thing to my life.”

And people will dismiss that feeling as silly—which maybe technically it is; like, I guess it’s technically silly that I find it incredibly hard to take my medication on some days—but it is real and if you feel that way, you are not alone or a freak or a failure of democracy or anything like that.

For one thing, there are people who do not want you to vote, and in many places they have made it hard to do so. But hopefully not impossible! For another, new things are scary and overwhelming to a lot of people.

So here’s what I have learned about voting:

1. At almost every polling place, there is someone who will advocate for your right to vote and try to make it easy for you.

2. If you go to the wrong polling place, or you aren’t registered, no one will get mad at you.

3. If you vote for the wrong person by accident, no one will get mad at you. They just give you a new ballot.

4. You are not the worst-informed voter in the United States.

5. The trick of having only experienced voters know how to navigate the process of voting is an attempt by those who have power to retain it. You deserve to be heard. Your voice is valuable. So take a few deep breaths, look up your polling place, and become one of the people that the U.S.’s elected representatives must answer to.

I know it’s not easy, and I congratulate and thank every single person reading this who voted in this election.

I found these gifs I made a while back for a site that’s not running anymore, so I thought I’d post them here. It’s a description of psychiatric symptoms and states of mind using a pink box and some other stuff. 

Okay, so into-the-weeds pointed out this really could use an image description, and I’m not sure how good at that I’m going to be but I’m going to try, because this is a really useful depiction of symptoms, I think. Unfortunately, looks like you can’t use cuts on photo posts, so sorry about the length!

TEXT: If I called this my mind [referring to image 1]

IMAGE 1: 3-dimensional depiction of a box

TEXT: This would be dissociation [referring to image 2]

IMAGE 2: same box, but with an empty space where every intersection of lines should be, like it’s coming apart at the seams

TEXT: And this would be depression [referring to image 3]

IMAGE 3: 3-dimensional box, filled with blue/grey darkness

TEXT: Depersonalization [referring to image 4]

IMAGE 4: two boxes overlapping, one a pale echo/shadow of the other, like a ghost version of the first box is getting left behind

TEXT: Anxiety [referring to image 5]

IMAGE 5: Box filled with crazy blue scribbles, all contained but an angry pulsing mess

TEXT: And mania [referring to image 6]

IMAGE 6: Box with large, bold scribbles in different colors coming out of it at all angles, completely uncontained but all originating inside the box

TEXT: Apathy [referring to image 7]

IMAGE 7: 3-dimensional box unfolded into a 2-dimensional representation - four squares in a row crossing a row of three squares

TEXT: Fear [referring to image 8]

IMAGE 8: box with a person huddled inside a corner; the faces of the box are now all covered in bars, like a jail cell

TEXT: And hope [referring to image 9]

IMAGE 9: box, open on one end with the face having folded down to make an exit ramp; person standing at the end of the ramp, ready to face the world

okay, self: 

a) if you show up to the polls looking like a crazy mess it may be embarrassing but not actually life ending, just go put on some clothes and use dry shampoo, you don’t need to make yourself shower. (do brush your teeth, tho.)

b) while no, you have not really done due diligence or whatever, as john green points out, you are hardly the LEAST educated voter out there, so just take a look at theballot.org and probably just vote blue, because lbh it’s always more voting against someone in this country

c) drink your damn orange soda, it’s fizzy and will make you feel better.

If you’re an American adult, there’s a lot of intense pressure to vote right now.

And I know that, for all kinds of reasons, a lot of you won’t be able to vote today. And all of you matter too.

Some of you may be unable to travel to the polls.

Some of you may have been convicted of a crime (rightly or wrongly).

Some of you may have been declared mentally incompetent by a judge.

Some of you may not have been able to figure out how to get a ballot in time.

Some of you might be at home taking care of kids with no one available to watch them so that you can go to the polls.

Some of you might have abusive partners who are preventing you from voting.

Some of you might be avoiding a stalker who knows your polling location.

Or any number of reasons.

Voting is important, but it is not the end all and be all of civic responsibility. If you for whatever reason aren’t able to exercise your right to vote, you’re still an American, you’re still an adult, and your voice still matters. (And if you’re neither an American nor an adult, your voice also still matters.) You have not failed or forfeited the right to have an opinion on political issues.

Whether or not you vote today, you matter and it’s good that you care about things, and it’s ok to keep caring about things.
