I never take the original commentary off a post, but every time I see this one go around and I add this at the bottom, I worry that people won’t scroll all the way down to read the addition. (Sorry to keep stepping on your post, OP.)


They haven’t for quite some time.

“How do I report a concern for a blogger’s safety?

Tumblr cares deeply about the members of our community, we do not have
the trained medical professionals or other resources necessary to
directly respond to safety-threatening emergencies. If you are concerned
for the safety of a Tumblr user, please contact an appropriate law
enforcement official or other appropriate government resource as soon as
possible. You can also make use of our list of counseling and prevention resources for self-harm issues.”

Now, there is a really impressive list of resources at the counseling and prevention resources link, but they still recommend speaking to a professional:

Counseling and Prevention Resources

you having a tough time? If you are struggling with an eating disorder,
depression, self harm, suicidal thoughts, or just need to talk to
someone, please reach out to counselors at one of the services listed
below. They are ready to help and want to hear from you.

If you are, or someone you know is, in immediate danger, please call a
local emergency telephone number or go immediately to the nearest
emergency room.”

So, by all means, keep sharing this post for the available resources (they really do look impressive!), but please don’t go into that help section expecting that if you tell tumblr staff about a user who has threatened suicide that they will act.  THEY WILL NOT.

That is all.


Well, @kingesstropolis, you just want all the things, don’t you?  (Again… NOT complaining!  ;D)  Sorry I didn’t get to this last night.  I was deep in the middle of Muet thoughts and couldn’t yank my brain sideways enough to give you these.  *sheepish grin*

(Anyone else want to play?)


1) Something this character is truly proud of.

As cheesy as it sounds, he’s proud of how much his friends trust him.  He’s developed this reputation that if you need support or need an ear or a shoulder or whatever, he’s there.  And he’s just so so proud that his friends trust him that much, especially Feuilly.  ^_^

9) What calms them when they are upset.

Being with his friends.  It doesn’t matter what they’re doing or where they are, but if Courfeyrac is upset, he goes to his friends.  Just being around them, reminding himself how much they all care for each other, will calm him faster than anything else.

12) How they sleep.

Anywhere and anyhow.  Seriously, Courfeyrac is the most adaptive sleeper on the planet.  If he has a California King sized bed to himself, he will somehow sprawl out to fill up the whole thing.  If he’s sharing with someone who likes their personal space, he can easily keep to his side of the bed, tucking in his limbs accordingly.  And if he’s sharing with someone who likes to cuddle, he can octopus-arms with the best of them.

19) When they feel safest

I feel a bit like a broken record here, but again, the answer is when he’s with his friends.  ^_^  Nothing makes him feel safer, physically or emotionally, than being surrounded by his closest friends.

25) What other people wish they could change about them

Secretly, deep down where no one will ever know, Enjolras wishes that he could make Courfeyrac just a little less accommodating.  Because he’s SO giving with his friends and so eager to do what they need that he doesn’t always look after himself the way he should.  And Enjolras would like to see him be just a little be more selfish, because it kills him when he sees Courfeyrac all but breaking his back to help someone just to get hurt in the process.

And Feuilly…  ^_^

2) Who they want to please the most.

DARNELL (*coughs* And if you’ve read the latest fic… Joly, too.  ^_~  *coughs*).  HANDS DOWN.  NO QUESTION.  Because in a lot of ways, Darnell took on the role of parent and role model for Feuilly.  And he’s one of the kindest, best people that Feuilly knows.  So, he figures that if he does something to make Darnell proud, then he’s done something right.  ^_^

5) A cherished personal belonging. // 9) What calms them when they are upset.

He doesn’t really focus too much on physical possessions.  He’s never had many – not more than he could fit in a single duffel bag, anyway – so he never got in the habit of accumulating things.  The only thing he really collects are pictures of his friends.  He stores them in lovingly maintained photo albums, and whenever he’s feeling down, he pulls out those albums and goes through them, reminding himself of all the people who have cared about him over the years.

13) What kind of parent they would be.

Oh gosh.  On his own, I think he’d be a bit of a disaster.  Because he’s never really had a good role model of parental behavior apart from Darnell, so instead he’s just accumulated this veritable mountain of things that Parents Should Never Be or Do ™.  And he’d spend so much time stressing over not being or doing those things, over not being that foster parent that he’d hated living with as a kid, that he’d lose track of enjoying it, I think?  But if he had someone else with him who could calm him down, make him slow down and remember why you become a parent to begin with, I think he’d make a wonderful parent.  Because ultimately, he’d want to make sure that any child who ever lived with him had the most wonderful experience he could give them, to make sure that THESE kids didn’t have the nightmare experiences that he had in the foster system.  He’d want to be their Darnell or their Fantine, and he’d work so hard to give them the best life he possibly could.

21) Their fondest childhood memory

HA. That’s a loaded question.  He doesn’t really have many fond childhood memories.  One or two of his grandmother singing to him and doing little craft projects with him when he was very young, and the first English test that he passed (he brought it home to show it to Darnell and Darnell bought him ice cream that night, he was so proud), but not much more beyond that.

22) How they spend their money.

Feuilly isn’t a big spender.  He never really has been.  Like owning possessions, he just never really got in the habit.  So, he hardly ever spends money on himself.  He’ll buy presents for his friends.  He’ll leave exorbitant tips in restaurants whenever he can.  He donates money to programs that help kids in need.  About the only thing he spends money on for himself is for food, bills, and little indulgences like photo albums and film for his camera.





A few notes:

  • Do this for every informative/news-related post you want to reblog. The fewer reblogs a false report gets, the less it spreads.
  • The best thing you can do for a false report is not reblog it at all, OR start your own post to debunk it, with a link to the original. If you reblog to debunk it, your reply will get lost in the huge amount of notes, and you will just end up spreading the misinformation further.
  • Sometimes a totally unlikely story turns out to be true! It’s even more fun to reblog it when you’ve confirmed that it’s real.

We all slip up sometimes but hey do what you can folks. Only you can prevent Tumblr fires.

As a blog that was created to debunk inaccuracies and share valid information and research, we support the recommendations in this post.

And we double-checked them before rebloging.
