After he set the fire and before he was caught, my cousin tried to rape a young girl my age in the park. The cops know and stuff, and my aunt apparently told them what happened with me, so I might get called in for questioning or something.

This apparently wasn't his first psychotic break, I guess. Around ten years ago he beat the hell out of an older guy he worked with because "the voices told [him] to".

This is still so surreal.

Before I start any of this, I'd like to say that I'm home safe in Topeka. Now I can go on.

On Sunday night, my 30 year old male cousin attempted to make a move on me. He came into my room around midnight in nothing but his boxers, while I was in my boxers and a wifebeater; he asked me for a hug because he was "feeling blue", and so I gave him one. It was one of those uncomfortably long hugs, and when I pulled away, he leaned in and attempted to kiss me, moving his hands down his sides to my hips and then back to my ass. I pushed him away and asked him what the hell he thought he was doing, and his only response was "I ... I dunno, I feel ..." and then there was mumbling and stuff and I couldn't understand him. So I told him to go the hell to bed and he left my room, and I proceeded to lock my door, freak out to the Solvin' Mysteries bros (and my parents, who didn't believe me) and cry for a good, like, four hours until I fell asleep.

I told my aunt and uncle what had happened in the morning, and they confronted him, and everything was cool for a while. Chris (said cousin) left for work around noon, and was supposed to be back at 9:00. However, around 8:45? There was a fire. I was dumb and I had my headphones in, and my door was closed; I couldn't hear the fire alarms and the smoke wasn't getting into my room. I didn't know anything was going on until my aunt and uncle's tenant barged into the manor and banged on all the doors yelling that there was a fire in there and in the carriagehouse/garage. Apparently, if we had stayed in there for ... two more minutes? We would have died of smoke inhalation. Scary shit. But we got out, and we're talking to the people, and, well, IT WAS ARSON for sure 'cuz they found gasoline. At this point it's like, 10:00, and Chris hadn't come home, and he wasn't home all night. Allow me to note that both the garage and the house were locked, and only two people have keys other than my aunt and uncle: Chris, and one of their old tenants.

Yeah, guess who it was.

When my aunt woke me up she told me that Chris had been arrested around 11:00 last night for being in a street fight. They found this out when my uncle went to go try and file a missing person's report. Apparently Chris was also telling one of the officers that he had "tried to burn the ghosts away". UHHHHH. ... So, yeah, he did it. Tried to kill his own parents and boy-niece. Freaky shit. He's apparently bipolar and an alcoholic, but me and my mom think he's probably schizo instead of bipolar ... but we don't know. He's getting sent to the VA psych ward soon.

Moving tomorrow at 9 AM. Takes me two hours to get there, and I don't know how long it'll take me to settle in/get talked to by my aunt about EVERYTHING/etc. I'm hoping I'm just underestimating the amount of online time I'll have once everything's cooled down, but either way, tacking up a ~semi internet hiatus~ juuust in case (especially since the first two weeks = my "trial period" with the fambly).

Peace out for a bit, guys, hope to see you soon.

Major Life Changes are upcoming, but until then, have a meme.

"You get so tired. You get so sick of the homophobia, the sexism, the culture of rape jokes and wife beating cartoons. But today you can take 30 seconds and smile. Somewhere right now there is a daddy dancing along while his femmy boy sings Lady Gaga. Somewhere right now there is a little girl suiting up to go play football with her peewee team. Somewhere there is a woman taking off the clothes she hates and pulling on a pair of pants. And there are boys holding hands in front of Dairy Queen and there are girls on their first date at the mall. There is a mom driving her son to the court so he can change his name from Brittney to Brandon. There is a family supporting their daughter after she reveals sexual abuse. There is a foster parent hesitantly walking into his first PFLAG meeting. And there exists more freedom, more equality, more safety than has ever existed before in the history of humanity. Of course it’s not enough. But it is amazing just the same. And you have done this. This did not happen despite our tears and our sweat, our humiliation and betrayal. This happened because of it.

Keep fighting.

Keep being that “annoying” dude pointing out every sexist remark.

Keep voting.

Keep protesting.

And don’t you EVER let the other side get you down. They know that wearing you out is all they have left. What they do not know is that because of you, their children are safer. Because of you, our schools talk about bullying. Because of you, sexual harassment is illegal at their place of business.

You’re doing it right."

Have you ever had one of those days where so much awesomeness happens that your brain literally can't take it and you just kind of shut down and go "EEEEEEEEEEEEEE"?

Yeah. That's today.

Lately I've been in a total freaking writing slump - well, by "lately", I mean ... most of last week and the week before, up until a day or two ago. I've recently managed to produce some pretty decent stuff, and now I'm testing the water, with your guys' help (hopefully)!


I want anything but single-worded prompts. Phrases, sayings, quotes, pictures, lyrics, even instrumental songs; the only specification is that these need to be pretty open-ended - and by that, I mean, please don't go "this pairing" or "this character" or "this fandom". Other than that, though, go crazy!

Your rainbow is intensely shaded red, green, and violet.


What this says about you: You are a creative person. You feel strong ties to nature and your mood changes with its cycles. Those around you admire your fresh outlook and vitality. You get bored easily and want friends who will keep up with you.

Find the colors of your rainbow at spacefem.com.

Accurate enough.

So, as most of you know, I'm a total music nerd. My tastes span pretty much anything, and when I say that, I mean it, none of that "excluding rap and country" stuff - I will admit that the songs I like in those genres are few and far between, but I don't automatically write them both off. Anyways, the point of this post...

I'm asking for music recs. Though, like I said, my tastes are expansive, my Last.fm gives a ... probably more specific idea of what I like! In return, tell me what kind of music you like and I'll give you recs~

I don't have a lot of my music downloaded anymore, which I need to remedy, hence why I'm doing this. I'm working on converting most of my Y T favorites but I ... still want moar 8D;
