BEING AUTI || Literacy

jokes

Many people with the autistic mindset find it hard to get the meaning behind wordplays and puns, because they’re very literal with pretty much anything. I suppose sometimes when their creativity/imagination is extremely complex and vast, sometimes it’s hard to understand simple metaphors or slangs.

Jared would teach his brother anything that has to do with metaphors, but especially his passionate for telling puns. Not everyone likes it when a joke has to be explained for someone to it, but for Timmy, when Jared explains the pun, the funnier it is. plus he’s a fast learner. Jared is super proud ❤

ANIMATIC PROJECTS!

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 || 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 || Vivid Memory

Good Memory full comic

I mean, anyone can have good memory, but for people of autism is extremely specific! I can go as far, as remembering the year, how old that person was when it happened, the clothes they wore that day; some even have the audacity to recall the time of the event or the scent of some things. It’s seriously weird in the most fascinating way!…I wish I have good memory, I have terrible attention span .-.

Memories, especially when there’s nostalgia involve, makes Timmy really proud of himself, and definitely makes others laugh at times! For Benji I’mnotsosurelol-

BEING AUTI || Hypersensitive Taste

Hypertaste full comic

Every autistic person has different sense of taste buds; some would prefer soft foods and despise anything crunchy; anything liquidy would be nice but not so much sugar, it all depends! For our Timtam, he doesn’t love anything that is too hot(unless it’s warm enough but he’s very picky), and doesn’t like his food to be soft. He loves crunchy/chewy intakes with funky tastes like; it’s why he loves cheese dip with yummy fresh cut up carrots and celery served cold!

And when he loves the food he won’t slow down-

Ignore the stares

it's okay

Benji has struggled with being bisexual for the longest time, and he’s lucky enough his family is so loving( and very gay, except the shit dad-), and his boyfriend Graham is very patient and supportive even though he doesn’t mind the staring.

…honestly though WHY CAN’T PEOPLE MIND THEIR OWN B U S I N E S S ??????
