Long weekend this weekend for which I am unspeakably grateful…[[MORE]] but oh god I want therapy to start. I know it won’t be a fix everything NOW solution but I am so desperate to start getting *better*, and I’m just so *tired* of being in pain and unhappy.

spacefille: So I was complaining to my roommate that I will never be able to write Karkat insults, and read him several examples. He went on about noun phrases (what?) and mentioned that they had a rhythm scheme. Then, because he is awesome, he messaged me the following. (He doesn’t know anything about who…
