Anonymous said: Dear Jim, I have a horrible tendency to cause harm to myself because I don't want to take my anger out on others. My girlfriend is suspicious about my scars. How do I deal with this? Hide my scars? Stop hurting myself? Hurt others? -girl who needs help
I have not posted on this blog in over 2 years. I have left a lot of questions unanswered, more than a lot. I had to delete my entire inbox because the questions still came pouring in after 2 years of not even touching this blog. I’ve only really kept it alive for posterity’s sake.
But I cannot let this question go unanswered.
I don’t know who you are or if you’re being serious or not. I hope to god that you are not being serious. Because if you’re not being serious I can tell you that you need to stop right the fuck now. Like right now. These things are no joking matter. As a person who personally has current problems with aggression and has had self harm issues in the past, these things are not a joke. They are real and they hurt real people. Nothing excuses this behavior and I hope you think long and hard about what you have sent to this blog because I am very disappointed. I hope you understand that. I am quite honestly ashamed that someone would stoop this low.
If you are being serious, I have two things to tell you.
This is a character ask blog. Nothing dealt with on this blog has ever been 100% serious, especially since Jim died and became an angel in my own canon. Jim Moriarty is a character and I simply wanted to have fun with portraying a character that I am particularly fond of, in all of his iterations.
That being said, I have no idea why you would come to an inactive character ask blog for help. Jim is a popular character, I understand, but he is just a character. He can’t help you.
Which brings me to number 2:
While Jim isn’t real, I am real. Below I have provided sources where you can get help for these problems that you are facing. Either way, please in the future do not address character blogs with these kinds of messages. You may be hurting, but as a person trying to emulate a character, it isn’t my place to talk about these things in this space. There are other places for that.
*1-800-273-8255 National Suicide Prevention Hotline
*1-800-334-HELP – Self Injury Foundation’s 24-hour national crisis line.
*1-800-273-TALK – A 24-hour crisis hotline if you’re about to self-harm or are in an emergency situation.
*1-800-DON’T-CUT – More info on self-injury
*http://www.selfinjury.com – Referrals for therapists and tips for how to stop.
Regardless your intention of this message, please never contact me again. I don’t care anymore if you are serious or not, you have approached the wrong person about these things.
I wasn’t planning on deleting this blog, but if anyone else tries to contact me about this, I definitely will.
Post with 4 notes
So I just got the Sherlock news that Moriarty is officially dead, meaning what I assumed to happen to the character is canon.
because there is only so much that you can do with a dead character, in the future I might open up questions from Jim as if he was still alive to keep things going with this blog.
I’ll find a way to do it without messing up everything, don’t worry. I just wanna keep things interesting and fun for you guys.
So that’s the announcement for the day, I’ll try working on the new asks later.
