Something sweet was asked for, so I do hope this does justice to the thought and I hope to have gotten the characters looking like themselves, at least somewhat.
// Simone you little fiend,>.<! Thanks for the commission [both of you], it looks great x3.
It’s a bit unfair to compare something life threatening to something not immediately life threatening.
Also, psychiatric care is really just a nice way of saying, “mind-altering drugs”.
Not life threatening? You’ve clearly never experienced or known someone with a severe mental illness. Up to 90% of people who commit suicide have a mental illness.
Eating disorders, mood disorders, anxiety and self harm have many life threatening effects on the body, e.g. malnutrition, gastrointestinal complications, increased risk of cardiovascular disease, risk of wounds becoming infected, nerve damage. People struggling to get the mental health care they need find themselves in ER’s, jail cells and psychiatric hospitals for their immediate safety.
The risk of this can be minimised with proper treatment, which can consist of medication but also includes psychotherapy, occupational and social work, emergency care and other treatments as appropriate for each patient.
Kidney patients can be kept alive on dialysis for years while awaiting a transplant.
Also, your “mind-altering drugs”? These are part of why I can go to school, have an internship, maintain friendships, and be a reasonably responsible family member. Meds are a complement to therapy and make it work better. Honestly, if I were not taking prescribed medication, I would probably be taking some “mind-altering drugs” that had worse side effects than dry mouth.
Mental illness is in part both caused and reflected by physical/chemical disturbances in the brain. In physical illness, medication is often used to aleviate symptoms or address causes. Psychotropic drugs do the same thing. They are a medical response to a medical problem.
People need to stop thinking mental illness isn’t serious
They also need to stop thinking psychiatric drugs are all useless.
Bolded for A+ commentary, this bullshit that physical medical issues are more valid than psychological medical issues needs to end now.
Also, depression raises the risk or osteoporosis, making even young adults exponentially more likely to get osteoporosis BECAUSE IT LITERALLY LOWERS YOUR BONE MASS.
Can we please stop acting like mental illness isn’t serious?
Can we please stop acting like mental illness is less valid than physical illness?
CAN WE PLEASE STOP ACTING LIKE MENTAL ILLNESS DOESN’T CAUSE DEATH AND SERIOUS PHYSICAL COMPLICATIONS?
CAN WE PLEASE STOP ACTING LIKE MENTAL ILLNESS IS ONLY IN THE BRAIN EVEN THOUGH IT SHOWS UP IN THE BODY?
CAN WE PLEASE STOP ACTING LIKE MENTAL ILLNESS DOESN’T REQUIRE TREATMENT?
CAN WE PLEASE JUST RECOGNIZE THAT MENTAL ILLNESS IS VERY REAL, AND SERIOUS, THAT NEEDS TREATMENT TO GET BETTER… AND STOP ACTING LIKE IT’S A COP-OUT (BECAUSE IT’S NOT).
Society literally pushes people to AVOID treatment (and use it only as a last resort), while we stress early intervention for physical illnesses - and then tells people they’re weak because it got worse because they didn’t seek treatment - even though all of science has proven it exists an REQUIRES TREATMENT TO GET BETTER.
All you people who think it’s not serious, who think it doesn’t need treatment, who think that therapy and medication are unnecessary… need to go do some damned research because your ignorance is an astounding example of societal BRAINWASHING.
Friendly reminder I almost died of paranoia, When I get in a really bad state my body shakes, I throw up and my heard pounds rapidly.
I had to go to the E.R, and when they couldn’t ‘find a cause’ for it they said I was faking it and sent me home.
^ Same thing happened to me on the Monday before thanksgiving. They kept me for three days because they thought I had done drugs but really I was having anxiety attacks AND panic attacks, along with separation anxiety and depression. They eventually sent me home after the cardiologist said it was due to my anxiety, but the doctor blamed me for it; he said it was my fault my heart is now messed up because I’m on too much medicine and that I’m “healthy”.
If any of my followers know, I’m most definitely NOT healthy.
It’s stuff like this that pisses me off because while organ failure is a terrible thing, mental illness shouldn’t be dismissed as “moodyness” or “antisocial”.
My mom almost died from her disorders, yet people still have the audacity to say that they aren’t life threatening.
you were the first!! ^^ so here : 3
"Mm, I’ll keep that in mind," Johannes hummed, smiling. He heard foot steps then the presence behind him. Large and slender, strong arms holding him as his body felt against Friedrich’s. He could feel his outline, the strength of his legs pressing against the back of his, briefly feeling the wholeness of Friedrich’s chest cradling his back. Soft butterfly kisses ravished his neck. Johannes was almost purring at every touch and sensation, nuzzling back with a small sigh. "My plans include spoiling you to the core and making you very, very happy," he replied lowly with a grin.
Johannes held the clear, crystal glasses. “Yes, I do wonder. What shall I do first and will it all fall into place.” Truth was, Johannes wanted to do quite a few things for and with Friedrich, but he wasn’t sure which thing he wanted to do first. He chortled and turned in Friedrich’s arms, handing him his glass of dessert. “Would you like to sit on the couch, my love? I’ll share with you my plans,” he purred into Friedrich’s ear, grinning deviously.
Clicking his glass against Friedrich’s as if sharing another drink, Johannes decided on what he wanted to do.
Friedrich gladly took the offered large glass with their dessert, examining it with obvious delight before returning his attention to Johannes ” Spoil me more than you already have? ” he cackled ” My love, you will make a lazy bum out of me if you continue to do so! “Friedrich protested though gently nudged Johannes back to the couch, sitting down and dragging him onto his lap with his free hand.
The Blu wasn’t planning on letting him go this day and night. Not out of his sight nor out of his hands. Friedrich wanted him close, as close as possible and keep it that way ” Well the way I see it, my love ” he started, putting his glass down so that he could wrap both of his arms around Johannes’s middle while that sat on his lap ” Is that I am here, and going to remain here for the whole night, and the next morning and the next couple of days. Of course unless you’d like to shoo me back into my lonely cold corner ” he grinned at him and kissed his cheek, teasing ” then I will. However I am all yours, and so that you can do everything you like no matter the order ” he shrugged nonchalantly ” I don’t think i’m planning on any sleep tonight either. Not when I have this absolutely wonderful, dashing and perfect man sitting on my lap. I think i’d rather litter him with kisses and all of my love, than waste my time sleeping ” he cackled.
" So.. Your plans? ", pressing a last kiss on his cheek, Friedrich nuzzled it and tilted his head, curious and at full attention.
Spotlight: More of Makani’s Fem!Medic, all by Makani herself (with an appearance by Magellan’s Fem!Spy in the first pic).
Johannes ate in good spirit, smiling as Friedrich seemed to become more and more relaxed. It was nice. The little happy sighs and the lazy kisses. Arms around his waist and head resting so preciously on his shoulder. Johannes was content. It took all of him not to just curl up in those firm arms and let himself get lost in the beating of his heart.
"Coffee?" he asked and chuckled. My they were having a variety of drinks tonight. "I suppose that’ll taste interestingly with the whiskey," he chortled and stood up. Johannes let his hands linger across Friedrich’s shoulders, brushing the fabric. He smiled and kissed Friedrich’s cheek. "Will do. And I still have plans for you tonight," Johannes purred into his ear, grinning.
He too the kettle from the side of the stove and refilled it with water which he set to boil. Johannes came back to his forgotten apron on the couch and clutched it in his hands. He spread out the blankets for them later and went to hang the apron onto its rack with another couple of worn aprons of other faded colors. “My.. I wonder,” Johannes muttered to himself and set to taking out their made desserts from the refrigerator and onto the counter.
Friedrich cackled at the remark, rolling up his turtle neck’s sleeves and starting on with the dishes, doing them carefully and properly , eventually replacing them on the small dish rack ” Well, I know that coffee goes well with cognac, that’s a fact. Why not try some with whiskey as well? “. Truth be told he liked having coffee with just about anything, even if only a few sips to fill in for taste or to sate his addiction to the stuff.
" Could always just drink the whole whiskey left overs as well " he laughed, turning the water off and taking a small towel to wipe his hands. It only took Friedrich a moment to be at the man’s side again, or behind him to be exact, wrapping his arms around him and kissing his lovely neck " Plans, my love? ", Friedrich smiled up at him, nuzzling onto that wonderfully smooth and slightly stubble jaw. " And what are they, if I may ask? ".
The only plans Friedrich really had were to eat that wonderful dessert, grab a cup of coffee and snuggle up on the couch with the most wonderful man that ever existed. And when they were comfortable enough, well… that would be telling. ” You wonder? ” he cackled again to yet another unanswered remark that piqued his interest, still following Johannes and practically being glued to him for the time being.
"Friedrich was never really a child. He’d never gone to school or high-school. He’d never been to an orphanage and he’d never had friends. Being too busy focused on survival he did a lot of traveling around town, therefore very often working as a guide to a newcomer in their lovely city, for a few coins or some food. He’d never been stealing though. He’d rather beg, but never steal."
Johannes was flushed by the sudden burst of affection that seem to be dripping off Friedrich this evening, taking him by the hand and just laying it on Johannes like butter on toast. He chuckled into Friedrich’s neck as the Blu hugged him. Johannes lifted an arm to hug him back.
"Oh, but this is apart of the reward," he insisted and kissed his cheek when Friedrich pulled back to sit in his seat again. Johannes was quite frankly ready to tug that man onto the couch right now and squeeze him the whole night tightly in his arms. It was his closeness Johannes craved, his entire being. Sometimes it seemed like there was no sating Johannes when it came to the blue eyed doctor and his fine limbs and hollow cheeks so worthy of Johannes lips.
"And thank you," he chirped, taking hold of his fork again. "I hope to become as good as you." Johannes licked his lips. The man never gave himself nearly enough credit. He really was a gem. Unpolished and neglected, but Johannes had made sure to hold him close so that he may break away from those old ties that held him to blame himself even when they were together. Sure, Johannes was sure that he wouldn’t be able to change Friedrich. There were some things that live deeper within him than Johannes did in Friedrich’s heart, but he didn’t mind. He didn’t seek to make Friedrich different. He only wanted him to grow confident in their love, his choices, the relationship and bond they had. No more putting himself below Johannes, no more guilt trips.
Friedrich could only really smile in reply, too busy now digging into his food until it was completely gone. It was beyond wonderful to say the least, so good he’d go for seconds, though his stomach was already too full for that. Instead he simply squeezed himself closer to Johannes and littered him with tender affectionate kisses as he ate, wrapping his arms around his belly, though not to tightly, and hugged onto him, clinging like a little child to his parent.
It was all so perfect. Friedrich sighed contently, closing his eyes and resting his head on Johannes’s shoulder, humming a soft slow tune. He’d never felt this good, this content before. And this was all it. The bit of peace in his life he was always after but didn’t even know it.
Waiting for Johannes to finish, he then collected all the plates and carried them to the sink, though not before stealing a long and lazy kiss from his man, murmuring in delight to the wonderful lips he couldn’t seem to have enough of ” Would you like to prepare a cup of coffee and our dessert while I wash these? ” he asked, smiling and carrying the pile of dishes and the rest of it to be washed.
When I say ‘take your time’, what I mean is:
- Take. Your. Time.
- If you have muse for another thread? You can reply to that
- If you have muse for another character? Guess what; you can reply to that too.
- If you’re getting feels for another ship?
OMFG. YOU H0R.No, seriously. You can reply, lmfao.
- If you’re overwhelmed with other threads? It’s okay; seriously. I don’t hate you, I don’t think any less of you. You get to ours when you can.
- If you want to drop a thread because you’ve lost inspiration with it; same as above. I don’t hate you. I’d rather you told me than fretted and thought omfg she’s gonna hate me when actually, the opposite is true
Muses can be fickle, fickle things and I shouldn’t have to say this but when dipshits come out with stuff like ‘take your time doesn’t mean you can reply to something else’ — actually, it does with me.
Anybody who plots with me, RPs with me, even talks to me; I love. Dearly. And when they reply I squeal like a mad thing because omg the flawless (seriously).
RPing is meant to be fun, lovelies. Don’t suck the fun out of it by being passive aggressive and a bit of a twat by saying shit things like that.
Take your time means take your time - It’s YOUR character, your blog. You reply to who you want, okay? <3
Send ღ for a LOVE/SEXUALITY headcanon.
Friedrich has always been a bit of a tease. Having to spend nearly 40 years of his life without even bothering to get into his sexuality and his love life, the sudden urge and eagerness to explore has finally surfaced after he’d come out of his little shell [Medic quarters]. Any who knows him well enough also is aware of his horrible tendency to get close and touchy. However his heart and love are always and forever reserved for Johannes. So despite his misleading act, he never really want to lead anyone on with the wrong ideas.
Though I’d like to add and say he’d learned to control his need for constant closeness of the sort, and now only does so with Johannes.
Send ✿ for a HAPPINESS headcanon.
Happiness has never been a part of Friedrich’s vocabulary i’m afraid. Why? Look at his life, his past and present and you’ll get your answer.
Though he did finally find some sort of happiness with Johannes, he still is constantly upset, tired and haunted by all that has transpired though his entire life. It is a state that can no longer be fixed, mended or someone made to be forgotten. It is also something he hates himself for being a part of him.

Friedrich was never really a child. He’d never gone to school or high-school. He’d never been to an orphanage and he’d never had friends. Being too busy focused on survival he did a lot of traveling around town, therefore very often working as a guide to a newcomer in their lovely city, for a few coins or some food. He’d never been stealing though. He’d rather beg, but never steal.
The clink of glasses was in the air and Johannes could only smile. “Good,” he said firmly, knowing Friedrich was joking. He had this little way of his. Compliments disguised as other things. Johannes had grown used to it be now and though he still didn’t like it when Friedrich devalued himself, he still accepted the flourish of compliments Friedrich loved to bathe him in. Seeing Friedrich’s cheeks streaked with pink life and eyes glittering in the light like jewels was all Johannes could ask for. He seemed.. happy. Very happy. Happier than Johannes had ever seen him and just thinking that he might be the reason for this wave of emotion only further made him elated.
"Then I hope you’ll help me with the dishes when we’re done," he teased, smiling cheekily. "I promise to reward you." Johannes let his knee rest against Friedrich’s, bringing back memories of when he would play with Friedrich’s feet. Make him squirm and blush. He loved that. Though now, Johannes legs, feet, lower bits, were still and only rested against Friedrich. Johannes dug into his chicken.
It was true. Friedrich was indeed happy, in fact so happy he feared he’d start crying from just how much joy there’s been in him. Being who he was and living the life he did never left any room for that sort of feeling or another. And so there was very little room for it still, making it so very very difficult to contain all the joy and love he was feeling. It was as if he didn’t even know what to do with all of this. It was suddenly all there, granted to him by this wonderful man.
Friedrich paused his meal and looked at him, genuine, as if looking at something that was far out of his reach. A figure behind an invisible glass with a bit of distance between them. But letting his hand rest on the man’s tight he proved himself, he was there. He was real, and warm. Alive.
" I’d love to do the cleaning and the dishes my love " Friedrich said nearly subconsciously, still starstruck and in awe to this whole situation they were in. It was so surreal to him, he may have though this was whole a dream still. " And you’ve already given me all the rewards I could ask for " he cackled now, setting his fork on the plate and leaning close to wrap his arms around Johannes. He didn’t care if he was eating or drinking and simply hugged him, resting his head on his shoulder, if a bit uncomfortably, but he wanted to feel him in his arms again. " All of my reward is right here " he cooed into that fine sweater, even though he didn’t deserve any of it.
He pulled away after a short while with a small smile and slightly watery eyes, though blinked all that way ” I’ll do the dishes when we’re done with that wonderful dinner of yours ” Friedrich said again, gently petting Johannes’s thigh before returning to his own meal.
Send ☂ for a FOOD headcanon.
Friedrich has never been the picky type with food. Growing on the streets with barely scraps and garbage to keep him up and on his feet, he’d never tried many things. And so he happily takes anything that’s offered to him, even when it may be half spoiled, he’d still eat it.
Send ␛ for an ANGER headcanon.
Friedrich has recently discovered that he does get angry from a very certain thing. Jealousy. Being with Johannes has woken up the worse of his sides, causing him a constant fear of loosing him, in turn, turning every bit of suspicious into anger against the 3rd involved party.
If he’d ever know anyone to get too close to his precious man, he’d quite literally go scream a storm at them to stay away.
