hic iacet stephanus, rex quondam rexque futurus

oh my god I think the other night i almost wrote an entire post about Avengers Steve & his obvious depression & how hard things are for him at that moment & bluhhhh maybe I should do that. (Also: yeah, snarky little cuss is the correct answer.)


(and he’s not being a goddamn authoritarian, he’s just having a difference of opinion with tony “YOU’RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME” stark, there’s KIND OF A LOT of middle ground there)

and yes yes you absolutely should

give me all your thoughts and feels *grabby hands*

yeah, like, people are welcome to be  COMPLETELY WRONG about the lab argument if they want to be, but picking on that line just reeks of “lololol religious people are humorless squares” :I

y’all can STOP using that one crack as evidence of anything except that steve a) was raised christian and b) is a snarky little cuss.

(well, and c) joss whedon never met a snappy exit line he didn’t like, but while his faults are MYRIAD that’s really not even in the top fifty, and besides it’s not news.)

"I think one thing you can do to help your friends who are depressed is to reach out to them not in the spirit of helping, but in the spirit of liking them and wanting their company. “I’m here to help if you ever need me” is good to know, but hard to act on, especially when you’re in a dark place. Specific, ongoing, pleasure-based invitations are much easier to absorb. “I’m here. Let’s go to the movies. Or stay in and order takeout and watch some dumb TV.” “I’m having a party, it would be really great if you could come for a little while.” Ask them for help with things you know they are good at and like doing, so there is reciprocity and a way for them to contribute. “Will you come over Sunday and help me clear my closet of unfashionable and unflattering items? I trust your eye.” “Will you read this story I wrote and help me fix the dialogue?” “Want to make dinner together? You chop, I’ll assemble.” “I am going glasses shopping and I need another set of eyes.” Remind yourself why you like this person, and in the process, remind them that they are likable and worth your time and interest.

Talk to the parts of the person that aren’t being eaten by the depression. Make it as easy as possible to make and keep plans, if you have the emotional resources to be the initiator and to meet your friends a little more than halfway. If the person turns down a bunch of invitations in a row because (presumably) they don’t have the energy to be social, respect their autonomy by giving it a month or two and then try again. Keep the invitations simple; “Any chance we could have breakfast Saturday?” > “ARE YOU AVOIDING ME BECAUSE YOU’RE DEPRESSED OR BECAUSE YOU HATE ME I AM ONLY TRYING TO HELP YOU.” “I miss you and I want to see you” > “I’m worried about you.” A depressed person is going to have a shame spiral about how their shame is making them avoid you and how that’s giving them more shame, which is making them avoid you no matter what you do. No need for you to call attention to it. Just keep asking. “I want to see you” “Let’s do this thing.” “If you are feeling low, I understand, and I don’t want to impose on you, but I miss your face. Please come have coffee with me.” “Apology accepted. ApologIES accepted. So. Gelato and Outlander?”"

P.S. A lot of people with depression and other mental illnesses have trouble making decisions or choosing from a bunch of different options. “Wanna get dinner at that pizza place on Tuesday night?” is a LOT easier to answer than “So wanna hang out sometime? What do you want to do?”

  • my sister: You're a weird chick.
  • me: I'm not the one who identifies with a raccoon!
  • my sister: No, you identify with the *tree*.
  • me: I don't identify with him! I just want to marry him.
  • my mom: ...you want to marry Groot?
  • me: Hey, I could do worse!
  • my sister: There are so many dirty jokes I could be making about now.
