It was funny poking at the Akagami no Shirayukihime fandom though. The canon relationship is the female main character Shirayuki with her male love interest Zen, but both have a close, somewhat shippy friendship with their mutual male friend Obi. My story is Shirayuki/Zen/Obi. (Will post properly later but if you're curious here it is)

On AO3 it’s mostly Shirayuki/Obi, Shirayuki/Zen, Shirayuki/Zen/Obi and a smattering of Obi/Zen, followed by relationships involving the other characters.

On fanfiction.net there’s a lot of Shirayuki/Zen and a little Shirayuki/Obi but no Shirayuki/Zen/Obi or Zen/Obi, my story aside. What there is is lots of fic like “When Zaara, half sister of Zen and Izana, and the illegitimate Princess of Clarines comes back home, Obi is the one tasked with her protection. He starts to grow closer to her as she takes him on crazy adventures, but underneath her fun and kind exterior, lies hidden secrets and sorrows. Obi/O.C. Crap summary, good story!”(*)

And the tumblr tag is a lot of gifsets of funny moments mixed with closeups of Shirayuki and Zen kissing.

(*)For all I know it is a good story, and given the nature of shoujo I wouldn’t be entirely surprised if something like this became canon. I am just amused at the difference in fic culture.

Every now and then someone I follow on social media will post something I find so upsetting I am unable to articulate my distress, and often I find myself in the position of either putting up with being psychologically damaged every time they say this kind of thing or silently unfollowing them, because I cannot see any way to explain my discomfort without getting into an argument I'm not up to.

So I've decided to try listing out my triggers, in hopes that putting them in the context of a large and frequently contradictory list makes it clearer that I'm not necesarily making a moral statement etc, and so I have something to link to when I'm feeling too freaked out to explain things. Some of these things I do have an ethical/moral objection to, but my emotional reaction is totally out of proportion, and there are other things I have zero objection to as long as I can avoid them personally.

I am not up for arguing about any of these (and it's not like you can convince me not to be triggered! That's not how triggers work!), but I can possibly offer clarification.

WARNING: Contains a whole bunch of common triggers!
All the triggers, ALL OF THEM )

I'm currently on 60g a day and have:
30mg (standard pill)
10mg: 3 pills
5mg: 9 pills
15mg: 5 pills
40mg: 12 pills

One site said go down at 10% a month, another 10-20mg a day. So I'm going to do what seems mathematically easiest: 50 (30+15+5), then 45 (30+15), then 40 (40) over the next 3 days, stay at 40 for a week then go to 30. All depending on how I cope with withdrawal of course!

I can get more of the smaller doses compounded, but I might as well start with what I have.

The reason for going off it is I have my life more under control and thus the side effects have become more irritating than my anxiety. At least, that's the way it seems from here, we'll see how I feel once it starts wearing off.

Castle Psych Sherlock
3 pages. Also available at AO3, has a transcript.

Sherlock from "Sherlock" meets Castle from "Castle" and Shawn from "Psych".

While looking up reference pictures I came across this very cute White Collar/Psych ad, and it's amusing since the comic was inspired by a conversation on [personal profile] flamebyrd's dw about Inception and White Collar.

Is Dreamwidth being flaky for other people?
