okay but then what’s the point of building tension toward said trauma. maybe I’ll just ask people to PM me if they’d like to know what the trauma is so they can decide whether or not to read it.
Is it sufficient to tag a fic with “trauma warning” if I don’t specify the kind of trauma? Because it would be spoilery, but I also don’t want anyone to be triggered by the descriptions contained in the fic
that one person you never really talk to but you reblog the shit outta each other
"We were having dinner in a pub in the country, and I noticed a man kept staring at me. Outside, as I was leaving, he approached me quite innocently. ‘I hope you don’t mind me saying so, but you look exactly like you’ve been drawn by Tim Burton. Do you know what I mean?’ I replied that not only did I know whom he meant but that I had two children by him and, in fact, he was standing behind him. The man looked around and nearly died."
Helena Bonham Carter
I read this as a kid and it had a really significant effect on me and and it’s a big influence on my world view and I still think it’s the most beautiful and profound thing anyone’s ever said about beauty
