I’m pretty sure I’ve gotten one about Ghoul’s scar. Maybe some about the eye patch, not sure. If you check the headcanons, you’ll probably find them!
This website sells them for $12. (I thought that was expensive, but when I Googled it, I saw people selling them for $100. Kinda ridiculous.)
True story: Last night I had a dream about Mikey posting two pictures on Twitter. One was a sketch of Lola wearing a Fun Ghoul jacket, which was a tattoo he’d gotten on his wrist, and the other was a picture of him and Kristin where he was wearing a pink jacket (and looking extremely handsome.)
Aw, thanks so much! Yeah, I love it when Poison calls him “kiddo,” haha. I enjoyed writing Ghoul screaming on the transmitter for some reason. Idk why, I just enjoy writing about his blow-ups. Thanks for reading!
Wow, thanks a lot for this great information. I never thought about any of this stuff, especially the fantasies. Someone actually sent me a self-harm prompt not too long ago, so this is really helpful. Hopefully it will lead to a better portrayal.
Congratulations on your recovery, that’s huge. Yeah, thankfully I don’t do it. I’m really glad I don’t, but I did worry that I wasn’t writing self-harm fics accurately, to the point where I wondered if I should even be doing them. So it’s a relief to hear someone who struggled with self-harm say they’re accurate (though I wish you never had to deal with that nightmare.) It’s an honor to hear that my fics have helped you. Dark fics help me deal with negative emotions, even if I haven’t experienced the issue at hand (self-harm, suicidal thoughts, etc.) They’re pretty personal for that reason.
Wow, thanks a lot. That’s a relief to hear, tbh. One of my biggest worries was that I didn’t portray it accurately (and I didn’t want to ask someone who’s self-harmed about their experiences and trigger them.) I’ve never self-harmed, so writing about it is a struggle. I base it off a self-harm fic I read a while ago, thinking about the emotions Mikey experienced in the fic, and my own experiences with urges to pick at stuff, which is obviously a lot less severe.
Suggest a ficlet!
Sitting in the diner booth, Party Poison turned his transmitter to Kobra Kid’s frequency. “Hey?” he said, his voice growing strained. “Kid? Are you there?”
Static hissed from the speakers.
“Come on, kiddo,” he said. “Can you hear me? Pick up, Kid. Please.”
Yeah, he seems to have come to an acceptance, but he still dearly wants Mikey to stay. So many emotions in that song, damn. Anger, acceptance, defeat, confidence, love…
Someone else said that he did. I’m still betting that he cried when he heard “Brother,” too. This fandom had a huge emotional reaction to it, there’s no way the subject of the song wouldn’t.
