I just realized that the little thing Peter Puppy says in EWJ when he’s trying to not transform is taken from motherfucking Dune:
Litany Against Fear
I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
(Granted, they did switch “obliteration” to “oblivion” — but STILL.)
(Maybe this is something people already got and I’m just late to the party.)
Hugging shorter people and resting your head on theirs
Hugging taller people and having your head against their chest
Hugging people your height and pressing your face against their shoulder
Hugging people and getting picked up by them
Not having people to hug
Giving a hug that comes off as weird
This post describes me in every way
