SM3DW ep 1-4

There are two projects I’d love to get done hopefully this month!!

First one is dedicated to the song “I’m Cool” by Will Roland (music by Sam Salmond) for my boy Timothy Kleinman. It’s also the reason why he was made 🙂 This also goes out to one of my favorite people, Will Roland who inspired me to create Timothy and Benjamin in the first place!

The Second project is about the Kirkstone twins; A friend and I have been imagining what their voices would sound like, and we always aspire them to Arin and Danny from Game Grumps! They’re popular youtubers and also hilarious. I always love to imagine these two characters in their voices. Unfortunately, I can’t upload the preview but soon I will update this post!

BEING AUTI ||Hypersensitive Sight

Flashy lights

People with ASD may have sensitive eyes which means anything bright or flashing can trigger them, usually fluorescent lights. Timmy’s eyes aren’t as sensitive, he loves glow sticks and theater lights. But when it comes to extreme flashes such as cameras, it breaks him into a meltdown. The guy definitely did that on purpose 😐

Too bad for him cause Michael is such a protective second mama-

“Men Don’t Cry”

crying is okay

Ever since Benjamin became a teenager, the father was harsher with him, causing the boy a lot of anxiety, even now. Even though the dad hasn’t been around, Benji gets nightmares every now and then. Thankfully, Graham is a patient boyfriend!

BEING AUTI || Non-judgemental

Understanding

Majority of society love following social norms, but there are few that strive to stand out among anyone else. People of autism are known to very understanding, and are rarely judgmental; just brutally honest most times. They know what it’s like to be an outcast just like anyone who is struggling in the world. Ever since middle school, Evan and Timmy have helped each other overcome social anxiety, vent out their problems as well as sharing their quirks, and interest.

These two are inseparable best friends!…and love watching some Disney moments-
That scene still makes me really emotional okay? *gross sobbing*

BEING AUTI || Screaming

Screaming

They’re very common around the mind of autism, especially being triggered by minor things (noise, taste, or change of routine). An emotional breakdown that involves screaming and sometimes hitting. It’s not easy calming them down, especially when they’re still a kid.

In this case, Tim has a phobia for balloons, the loud pop is very unsettling especially against the ear. (I hate it a lot too :|) He’s just really scared, unfortunately others don’t understand just as much as his brothers and mom.

Anything that may calm an autistic person could be a certain texture they like, an interest they love to distract them from their meltdown. Tim loves anything nostalgic and fluffy, like Mr. Bunnington!

BEING AUTI ||Sexuality

sexuality

Autism =//= childish, especially as they grow up into adulthood. I mean yes, they do have child-like traits, and seek comfort within nostalgic objects and memories, BUT this doesn’t mean autistic peeps do not have sexual tendencies; they have can be as heterosexual, bisexual, gay, asexual, etc as any other human being.

For Tim’s situation, for those who don’t know, he’s demisexual; a person is not sexually attracted to anyone unless there’s a strong emotional foundation. Ever since Rich and Tim started dating at the beginning of sophomore, of course he wants to ask questions in order to make Timmy feel comfortable.

Tim certainly doesn’t mind any further intimacy and I think Richie’s…Richard doesn’t seem to mind either-
