emotional abuse is when someone does something to hurt you, and when you express your feelings, that you’re upset, they turn it around to be something you did to hurt them and they force you to apologize for it, and your feelings, like always, are rendered invalid and silenced, forever damaging the ability to trust others with your feelings because they always are used against you.
this is important because so many people don’t know this
what if you were in bed tonight and you were really lonely and sad and you were lying with your arm hanging out over the edge of the bed into the darkness and just as you were going to sleep, the darkness reached out and held your hand
i made a thing
i don’t think i’m as freaked out by the dark anymore
someone write a superhero story where the lady in the ensemble gets fed up for not getting the respect she deserves so she becomes the villain and manages to beat up all her teammates and rules the world
Okay first: this is a really serious question, even if you might not think so. Really. So. Do you think Tohru needed a lot of time before having a sexual relationship with Kyo (I personnally think she would, because she is not like most of the Sohma -pointing at Akito, Haru and the others-). And if yes, do you think Kyo might have been upset with her for not wanting to, well, have sex with him immediately? OR could it have been the total contrary?
C: Yes, I think Tohru would have needed time before starting an intimate relationship with Kyo. She’s easily flustered and shy, and I think it fits with her character to slowly develop into wanting/feeling comfortable with sex. I’m quite positive that Kyo would have never pushed her or been upset if she wanted to wait. Kyo has learned a great deal of patience over the course of the series, and we see much fewer outbursts from him in the later half of the manga. He also has a lot of respect and love for Tohru, and pushing her or getting irritated with her seems to go against his entire character. If anything, he would probably get mad if someone else brought up the subject to Tohru and made her uncomfortable or nervous.
I could also see Yuki and Kyo not wanting to rush into a quick sexual relationship. Haru, Rin, Akito, Shigure, Kureno, etc. seemed to find comfort and/or power in a sexual relationship. But we have to remember that the Zodiac has been unable (and forbidden) to form romantic attachments or any sort of relationship. Even the ones who are sexually active have chosen their partners from inside the Sohma family. It easy for me to imagine that a lot of the Sohmas would be skittish of too much touching after being denied it for so long. Going from being terrified of attending a co-ed school to being able to touch, hold, cuddle, hug, and make love is a huge jump.
J: I agree with Casey completely. The first thing I thought was that Kyo wouldn’t jump into a sexual relationship quickly, even if Tohru would have been okay with it. Kyo is also easily flustered and spent most of his life pushing people away from him, so a sudden intimate relationship might be too much (as well as for other Sohmas).
