From the Homestuck Flavored (which is probably somewhere along the lines of Skittles with a side of grueling heartbreak with a dash of bitter tears) Personal Questions thing: Nannasprite-Do you like to cook? Aradia-Do you forgive easily? or do you hold a grudge? Vriska-have you ever wanted to apologize for something really bad you did but couldn't? Equius-Do you prefer authority to keep you safe or anarchy to keep you free? Jane-are you gullible?
I love your summary of “Homestuck Flavour”!
Moving right along…
I enjoy the occasional bit of cooking. Word on the street is I make a MEAN scone!
That one really depends on the situation and how the other person reacts/is involved. I’m quick to forgive a lot of things… but if you hurt someone dear to me and show know sign of apology? You better bet I’m gonna grudge it up in this place.
Hmmmm… I don’t… think so? When I fuck up I do tend to get a chance to apologise some way or another…
I rely a lot on authority in my life, like it or lump it. (Yaaaaay living on government support! Bleh) But as much as I enjoy the safety that certain authorities can provide… the bureaucracy that comes with it makes me want to pull my hair out.
I want to say no on this one… I’m trusting but I didn’t fall off the turnip truck yesterday, y’know? Plus, Mama’s been around the block enough times to be pretty on the ball about most things.
WHAT THE FUCK DOES HAIL HYDRA MEAN?
There was a split second there where his like, “wait, what? bro what are you doing?”
On more serious note, PTSD dogs for veterans are so fucking therapeutic. They’re like the one person you can spill your guts to and never worry about ever being judged or have that secret divulged. There are times when I definitely prefer the company of a dog over a human.
Therapy animals save lives.
These dogs are even still so much more amazing. They check rooms before their handler enters, so they can clear it to help the person feel safe. Like in the gif, they are there when panic attacks or nightmares occur, to be something for the person to help ground themselves on, or yes just to turn on the lights. Even more amazing, many people are able to reduce their medication when they have a PTSD service dog there to help them. These dogs are useful for not just veterans, but also victims of abuse, accident trauma, natural disasters, and others. Their training allows them to be useful in situations where medical assistance is needed, as well. Some PTSD dogs are trained to recognize repetitive behaviours in handlers, and signal the handler to break the repetition and stopping the behaviour and possibly injury.
Service dogs in general are just awesome. Remember to respect any that you see out in public. They are not there for you to walk up to and play with, even the puppies!
Everything about this is excellent. I absolutely love therapy dogs!
On a fun side note, there are therapy dog companies that raise their dogs to be good with other pets, particularly cats. So there are cats all around where they grow up and are taught. But the cats don’t have to do all these tricks and things they’re learning, so the dogs think “Wow! Those guys must be the boss animals! When I grow up I wanna be one!” And they pick up cat behaviours! They’ll groom like cats, and play with their toys like cats, grabbing them in their front paws and kicking them with their rear paws. Such adorable little darlings!

LOOK AT THIS PRECIOUS FAT BABY!
HOW DO I STAND HER? AHHHHH! I almost don’t want her to grow up!
