7 Cups of Tea

Heyo! Just noticed your guys’ resource tag and thought I’d toss this your way.

For those unaware, 7 Cups of Tea is like IMAlive’s helpful kid sister. It’s completely anonymous, free to use, and connects you to a volunteer to talk through an instant messaging client. The main difference between 7Cups and IMAlive is that while IMA is a suicide helpline, 7Cups is an online counseling service.

As a long-time listener at 7 Cups, I’ve had all kinds of callers and been delighted to talk with every one. I’ve had all kinds of people, from those who really need to work though a specific issue to those who just had a crummy day, and all are valid and welcome. The listeners at 7cups vary from those at IMAlive because they just pop in whenever they have a moment, so you dont need to worry about wasting anyone’s time.

Drop by next time you’re feeling off!

NOTE!! If you’re suicidal, harming yourself, or in immediate danger this is not the place for you. The listeners do care, but are instructed to refer and bail if they believe this is the case for liability purposes. Skip a step and call a hotline!

Anonymous asked: Hey Eridan, did you hear back from your therapist on the borderline/avoidant comorbidity thing? I'm curious because that really sounds like a friend of mine. They're also autistic, so maybe that screening's not a crock after all. I hear you on the media blaming it for kids acting out, and not reporting on the bullying and whatnot, but it's still worth knowing, right?

cA: yeah wwe talked about it last wwednesday

cA: theres evven a little number for it but i forget

aG: 301.9, 8roseph. How far are you even gonna get if you don’t learn your 8asic shit?

cA: hey vvris when exactly did pyrope die and make you the head shrink around here because im pretty sure i saw her tappin dowwn the hallwway not twwo hours ago

aG: Oh please, it’s 8asic survival in the system.

cA: wwhatevver

aG: You 8etter learn the game fast, kid, or it will chew you up and sh8 you out.

cA: wwhat game

aG: The only game there is. Staying safe in a crazy-ass world full of losers staring at walls. You’re looking at the master.

Anonymous asked: So Equius- how do you feel about Ms. Peixes?

cT: D —> She is a consummate professional in every way

cT: D —> Her attitude is e%cellent, her charts are impeccable, the residents are very fond of her and she never complains without a good reason

cT: D —> She maintains order with the young ladies on campus without being e%cessively aggressive toward them, and with some of our residents that is quite a feat

cT: D —> That said, I do worry that her wardrobe may occasionally be somewhat inappropriate for the setting

cT: D —> Though I have been instructed to mind my own “beeswax” on the matter

Anonymous asked: Have there been any unfortunate sessions of slam poetry lately?

tT: It has been strangely quiet for days now. I’ve begun to feel a strange sense of foreboding, as if something terrible is building in the air around us.


gG: its called a slant rhyme, dumbass, i looked it up and they’re completely acceptable in rap!

cG: UGH.


gG: sore loser :P :P :P :P

Anonymous asked: I'm confused, is anyone actually "together" or "sexually involved" in the facility? Or has been a thing? I know that Kanaya and Rose are being cute as always, but what about everyone else?

tA: nobody ha2 phyii2iical contact wiith anybody, ever.

tT: Absolutely not.

tA: and certaiinly not iin the liittle alcove behiind the washiing machiines.

tT: Kissing someone back there would be completely against the rules.

tA: and un2aniitary, have you 2een tho2e liint ball2?

tT: I have become rather fond of them, actually. Like dusty little microcosms of an ecosystem, supporting all manner of scuttling dark life in their fluffy gray masses.

tA: the thiing2 tho2e wad2 of bellybutton liint have 2een.

tT: They have seen nothing, Sollux. Nothing.

tA: but iif they diid, iit would be totally hot.

tT: Oh, totally.

Anonymous asked: I have a major question, as this is a major GLB facility, has there been incidents of patients not being able to "cope" around others there due to how much some of them seem to flaunt their sexuality over others at times.

tT: There have been a few, I must admit.

gA: The Ones We Could Not Corrupt

tT: Convert, Kanaya. Convert.

gA: Yes Convert Silly Me Anyway What Became Of Them I Forget

tT: Why, they do seem to have disappeared, don’t they?

gA: What A Mystery

tT: It may be that they checked out in the night, fleeing our pervasive influence.

gA: Perhaps They Had Help From Outside A Sort Of Morality Ninja Squad To Smuggle Them Off Campus Immediately After Checks

tT: The theatrics really shouldn’t have been necessary. We would have let them go in peace, had we only known we were being gay too loudly for their taste. It just never occurred to me that this would be a problem!

gA: Yes I Feel Really Terrible

tT: I blame myself entirely for the Indigo Girls Twerking incident, which I now realize may have had a literal body count.

gA: Oh We Should Never Have Been So Visibly Sapphic In our Celebration Rose Look What We Have Done

tT: I hereby renounce my wayward homosexual adolescence. It can only bring this nation to ruin.

gA: I Only Flaunted It A Little Bit

tT: A little is all it takes, I’m afraid. We must commit ourselves to a life of suitable chastity and constant vigilance.

gA: It Will Be Tough But It Is Only Fair

tT: I for one am proud to do my part in making this space safe for those people who need representation the most.

gA: Thank Goodness This Ask Reached Us When It Did

tT: In a word, phew!

malycef asked: I could've sworn I'd seen this answered, but I can't find it, so sorry if it's a repeat! If I wanted to roleplay the Brainbent version of someone, would that be OK? I'd give credit for the 'verse concept (and many thanks :D), of course.
