LOOK-AT-THIS-FACE-IN-THAT-LAST-ONE

i am a genderfluid (he/she/they) mixed asian. my father is half chinese, born in burma, and grew up in hong kong until he moved to america as a teenager. my mother is wa (from burma) and moved to america to marry my father and to find a better job to support our family in burma.

everyone always tries to figure me out instead of trying to take my word for my own identity. one look at my chinese last name should be enough proof and yet they still don’t believe me. 

happy afad to the trans, gay, fat, brown, and mixed asians out there! the world tends to forget about us.

Dunno if it’s just me, but the still shots of the muds from NnT just look a little…funk.  I think it’s the teeth?  Don’t get me wrong, I love these new models and everything - they look great! But they’re just off enough for me to think they look a little weird, mostly in the face/expressions.  I dunno, maybe I’m just being a nitpicky OW vet but I mean coME ON LOOK AT THAT DERP-ASS MOUTH ON THE LAST ONE LMAO.

hi (: half Malaysian half Polish here. it’s hard growing up where there’s almost zero diversity and you’re the minority. almost my entire life I grew up without identifying with my Malaysian side. that influence was never in my life. I always aspired to the beauty goals of the western world. this caused me to hate my face and body, my Malaysian-ness, my existence. I’m still learning how to love myself.
I face microaggressions almost every day. Last winter I was once referenced to as Cho Chang from Harry Potter all because I wore a scarf. I haven’t worn a scarf since then.
it’s difficult being mixed race. I’m light for a Malaysian person, I’m too “Asian-looking” for a Polish person. I have nothing to identify with. it’s hard to think that I’m beautiful when there’s no one around me that looks like me whether it be at school or at home or in the media. I’m learning to accept and love all the things that make me who I am. it’s going to take a lot of time, but I’m learning. I’m learning.

That, my darlings, is the last detail layer. He is currently basking in ZM and will get one more coat of that before I apply the little shells and the stones. Oh and gloss. I can’t forget that. And lashes. Those either. Also, don’t forget I have this sculpt for sale. I know it’s unusual but goodness, look what you can turn him into! I’m not even the best at doing this, I just try really hard to make each of my face ups special. Cain will always be my flagship sculpt, even with his shattered skull, scars, and big old broken nose, he is the character that always made me feel the last broken. I made him first because I knew, if I could sculpt all of those issues and get them right, I would be able to sculpt the others. He showed me a lot and I have every incarnation that went in to making him whole. I love him to bits and it gives me so much joy to know that this one is going to a place where he will be loved too. I hope that you all like him and will enjoy what the finished forest king modification looks like.

Something you didn’t know about me

I like trees, not like a tree hugger, because you can cut one down and plant a hundred. Nbd

not just any ol tree either. Some of them you look at and they have character, a gravitas. It’s like an anchor, a sense of longevity. Now I know they won’t last forever, but still……

I looked for an image to convey what I mean, this one comes close but doesn’t quite get there. Maybe I should get my face out of the phone and look for trees to photograph.

I’ve thought about taking up bonsai, it probably wouldn’t do well in the truck though….. maybe when I retire…… if I retire.

!!! THANK YOU FOR ALL OF THESE PROMPTS I’m extremely hung over so i’m gonna. write some meaningless incompetent flirting

“Get something else.”

Hinata paused in the middle of his text to Yachi and looked up at Stormcloud Barista (he’d snuck a look at his nametag last week so he knew he was actually called Tobio but it had been Stormcloud Barista from day one and Stormcloud Barista it would remain until he stopped—hanging over everything looking personally offended). He was only kind of looking at Hinata, his face as pinched as always, and Hinata—must have heard him wrong. “What?”

Thank you so much darling!! I’m going to have fun with this request ehehe

also your icon is fabulous amen


Never in your life had you experienced such an uncomfortable situation.

You’d gone through plenty of embarrassing moments, one after another, but this one had to take the cake. You wanted to erase it from your memory and it was still in the process of happening.

You could still hear those words from last week echoing through your head, repeating over and over like some kind of absolutely hellish mantra.

“Wait, you like Jihoon hyung? As in, like, like like?”

The look on Vernon’s face was one of absolute disbelief, and you were unsure of whether to take offense or be very, very afraid. You chose the latter, instinctively backing ever so slightly away from the oddly intrigued seventeen year old.

“I mean… If you want to put it that way, I guess,” You replied, choosing your words very carefully. You didn’t want to get into any messes here, but you were suspicious that you already had.

The wonder on his face had now morphed into mischief, and you became aware that you had been absolutely in the right in regards to being afraid of his reaction. It was worrying. Very worrying.

“I can set you guys up, you know,”  were his next words, exactly as horrific as you had been anticipating.

But, then again…

“Wait, really?”

The temptation was too great, and the words pushed themselves past your lips before you had a chance to fully understand what was being said to you. But it was too late to call them back now. You had just played straight into Vernon’s hands.

Worrying grin still present on his face, he nodded. “Yeah, no problem! I can get a date for you!”

And, now, here you were. You sat in a dimly lit restaurant, hands folded awkwardly in your lap. On the other side of the table sat Woozi, eyes wandering everywhere but your eyes. You should’ve known that this would be disgustingly uncomfortable. You didn’t know what Vernon had told him, but it couldn’t have been any good. 

“So… how are you?” Woozi asked after a solid five minutes of complete and utter silence, meeting your gaze for only a mere fraction of a second.

“I’m good,” you responded, immediately mentally berating yourself for giving such an answer. He attempted to make conversation, no matter how awkward, and you just shot him right down. Trying again, you asked, “How about you?”

He shrugged his shoulders. “So-so. I’ve been a bit stressed out lately.”

“I’m sorry to hear that.”

And, just like that, you had killed the conversation again, and silence befell you once more. You had anticipated that this would be vaguely awkward, but never in your wildest dreams had you imagined anything of this proportion. 

Eventually, the waiter appeared, asking you what you’d like to order. You both stated your requests with the utmost politeness before your voices were lost yet again.

The entire night went on in such a way, and it was oh so painfully uncomfortable. You became well acquainted with failed attempts at small talk, uneasy glances, and heavy silence. At the end, you stepped once more into his car to head home, steeling your nerves for a thirty minute long wordless car ride. 

Or so you thought.

You’d been driving for perhaps ten minutes when the car began to shudder. You stole a glance over at Woozi to see if this was normal in the slightest, but by the time you’d turned to him the car had already halted.

Confused, he jiggled the keys in the ignition, wiggled the steering wheel around, and did everything that he could think of to possibly get it started again, but came up empty handed after each attempt.

Woozi slammed his head against the steering wheel with an agitated sigh, you merely looking on without the faintest clue as to what you could possibly do to alleviate the situation. Suddenly remembering your presence in the car, he turned to you, irritated expression turning apologetic. “I’m so sorry about this…”

You waved his concern away immediately. “No, no, don’t worry about it. We just need to find a way to get out of here now.”

He agreed, and the two of you undid your seatbelts, sliding out of your respective sides of the car. He pulled his phone from his pocket, dialing the number for someone to come and tow the car. Not knowing what to do with yourself, you leaned against the car, tilting your head back to look at the stars. It was a clear night out, so there were a plethora of them dotting the night sky. It also helped that your current location wasn’t particularly busy, eliminating the glare from city lights.

You vaguely heard Woozi’s voice on the phone in the background as you stared up. Growing slightly uncomfortable from having your neck craned back, you decided to go for a better angle, walking to the grass beside the road and laying down with your hands behind your head. 

“What are you doing?”

You didn’t realize that the phone call had ended until you heard Jihoon’s voice directly behind you, causing you to jolt as you looked up to meet his eyes. Suddenly embarrassed, you stuttered out, “I’m-I’m looking at the stars.”

He took this as his queue to look up as well, taking in the view. “I see… it’s very pretty tonight.”

Without another word, he settled down in the grass next to you, mimicking your position. “I wish I got a chance to stargaze like this more often.”

You turned your head slightly to look at him, trying not to let how close you were get to you. “Do you like to do this?”

He shrugged as best as he could in his current position. “I think it’s nice to every once in a while. It’s normally hard to see the stars where I live, though.”

You nodded in understanding, and before you could fully register what you were saying, you replied, “It’s easy to see them where I am. You should come by sometime.”

Woozi was clearly as taken aback by your words as you were, if not more, because he turned his head to look at you with wide eyes.

Realizing what you had said, you quickly tried to backtrack. “I-I mean, that is, you don’t have to, it’s just that if you’d like to, I’d be okay with it, a-and-”

You were cut off by the sound of laughter.

Much to your surprise, there sat Woozi, right beside you, laughing into his hand. Confused, you waited for him to calm down. He cleared his throat, letting out a quick ‘sorry’ before, “It’s just, I was thinking that it’s cute when you get all flustered like that.”

As if it hadn’t been surreal enough that he had actually laughed at something you said, there he was, complimenting you. Your face heated up as you immediately jerked your gaze back to the stars. It was weak, but all you could muster in response was ‘oh’.

You didn’t know how long you two had laid there before the tow truck finally arrived. But things had gotten infinitely better after that. You laughed, talked, and generally just had fun. It was completely unreal, a 180 from the disaster that was earlier.

Frankly, you wouldn’t have minded if the tow truck never showed up.


okay im so sorry that was so shitty and really not even what you asked for tbh ugh I’m sorry

EPILOGUE

THREE YEARS LATER

EVIE

There was a hustle of students filtering in and out of the university garden. A chorus of “Congratulations” and “You finally did it!” could be heard wherever you turned. You could tell just by looking around who were the ones that were finally graduating by their lips that were pulled across their faces in a excitement, and eyes glistening under the late April sun.

We did it. We were finally done.

anonymous asked:

tips for passing ftm? I came out to my mom a few days ago and I just really need some help passing. I also have short/medium length hair and when I wear "guy" clothes I just look like a tomboy and idk what to do.

Here we go: 

1) Binding. I personally use this website. They have a little bit of everything, including swimwear, which is usually really hard to find. Please be careful when binding, though. Don’t use ace bandages or tape and make sure that you can breathe and are comfortable all the time. 

2) Next, kind of obvious. But don’t shave. Armpits, legs w/e. Unfortunately you won’t be able to reap the full benefits of that one until you’re on T, but it can’t hurt. 

3) Don’t be afraid to contour your face a bit to make it look more masculine. 

And last exude confidence. Use the men’s room, , Corect people that misgender you. Fucking assert yourself and you’ll feel 9128379469523 times better. <3<3

Always There - Rose/Baby

Rose had turned her phone off for the night after the last text she got from Wyatt. She truly didn’t want for things to end between them this way. She never expected this would be the outcome for them. She couldn’t help but feel she really was the reason he was leaving after everything that had happened. It made her feel guilty and maybe that was how she should feel. Maybe she was the one in the wrong. Looking over to Baby, Rose forced a small smile across her face, reaching out to take his hand in her’s. “I guess that’s that.” She frowned slightly, giving her best friend’s hand a gentle squeeze, not really sure what else to say about the situation.

July 2015 Favourites

July was relaxing for the most part and I very much enjoyed my break from uni. Despite my efforts my skin hasn’t seemed to improve much. For July, I have continued focusing on trying to improving my skin’s condition. My main concerns for this month include blemishes around the chin are, dull skin and dark circles. Here are a couple of products I found myself using and loving this month!  

  • Mizon All-in-One Snail Repair Cream (review here!)
    The redness, blemishes and scars on my face have really been getting me down. I’m so glad I decided to repurchase this product in my last haul because it has helped quite a bit! This really helped to restore the condition of my skin. I find that my skin tone evens out faster, blemishes are reduced and also skin just looks quite a bit better! Mizon All-in-One Snail Repair Cream  is something that everyone seriously needs to try!
  • Skinfood Salmon Bright Eye Cream (review coming soon)
    I believe this may be the third time I’ve included this eye cream in my monthly favourites. Honestly, I wouldn’t know what I’d do without it!  I find that with this product, the area around my eyes were a lot brighter and looked more awake after use. Anyone who has a problem with dark circles should really look into this brightening eye cream.
  • Mizon Refresh Time Grapefruit Peeling Gel (review here!)
    Another Mizon product that made it into my favourites is the Refresh Time Grapefruit Peeling Gel. I find that Mizon does really well for their exfoliating products. This particular peeling gel has brightening properties which was perfect for my dull looking skin. It is incredibly gentle to use and leaves the skin soft, smooth and looking bright.
  • Secret Key Snail & EGF Repairing Mask (review coming soon!)
    I’m not entirely sure why I haven’t gotten around to writing the review for this product yet, but I have basically been using these masks for over a year now. They are pretty great for multiple reasons. I find that this mask is brightening, soothing, moisturising and basically all the other things you would want in a sheet mask!

So those are my favourites products for July! I know quite a lot of the products mentioned don’t have reviews up yet, but they are coming very very soon, so look out for them! Let me know what you’ve been enjoying this month!

Dear Charlie,

I’ve had epilepsy for 7 nearly 8 years and I haven’t had a seizure for over a year now and I’m happy about that because it means no pain for my family but still there’s always the risk I could have one again and it makes me nervous, it’s like you’re walking down a road at night with plent of corners for someone to hide and you feel like you’re being followed and you look behind and you can’t see anyone but you know they are there well that’s how I feel with the epilepsy that at one point maybe tomorrow or the next day or next month or next year I will have another seizure and I’m terrified partly for me because last year when I was having one I was conscious during it but I’m mostly terrified for my family seeing it, not being able to help me just let it out get my system and then seeing the sadness and heart break on their faces.

Love always,

L
