  • Robert: There's some good flats on here.
  • Aaron: All we need now is a quick lottery win and we're sorted.
  • Liv: There's only one bedroom!
  • Chas: Er... it's the wrong side of Robblesfield, too.
  • Robert: And we're pushing it even then.
  • Liv: Unless you let me chip in?
  • Aaron: That's not happening.
  • Liv: Why not?
  • Aaron: You know why not.
  • Liv: It's stupid to have it sat in the bank.
  • Aaron: Well, give it away if it's causing you grief.
  • Liv: You're the one causing me grief, I'm trying to be helpful.
  • Aaron: Well, that's another fail, innit?
  • Robert: Aaron!
  • Aaron: Just drop it, Liv, right? It's not happening.
  • Zak: You think mortgage repayments are a problem? You should try renting.
  • Joanie: You wouldn't believe what they're charging.
  • Zak: And I wouldn't leave my dog in some of those we've seen.
  • Robert: We wouldn't be able to get much round here.
  • Chas: Yeah, but your business is round here, you can't go too far afield.
  • Liv: Look at her panicking. We're not talking about emigrating.
  • Robert: We're not talking about anything at the minute. It's all a bit pie in the sky.
  • Joanie: What about The Mill?
  • Zak: Aye, or what's left of it.
  • Joanie: Yeah, it's been repossessed so it's bound to come up for auction.
This Thursday (31st March) is Trans Day of Visibility

It’s that time of year again! That awesome day where trans people share their selfies and stories. It’s one of the two largest trans advocacy days, the other being Trans Day of Remembrance (20th November). That day is dedicated to mourning and solemnity, while this day is a day to celebrate being alive! Like last year, I’m not sure of the absolute official hashtag, so I’m guessing there’ll be a variety in use, such as: #tdov #transdayofvisibility #trans day of visibility #trans visibility #trans pride

This day has been recognised since 2009 and is increasing in popularity and support each year, but there’s still a long way to go in spreading the word. Visibility is something that the trans community often has to struggle for, so this is our time to step out of the shadows, take pride in who we are, and show the world that we exist and we’re here to stay.

If you are trans

This is your day. No matter your gender - whether you’re male, female, or any nonbinary gender - anyone who isn’t cis (ie. whose gender is different from the gender they were assigned at birth) can participate. This is a great opportunity to get involved in the community and be visible. If you’re comfortable, post a selfie. Share your story. This is your time to be proud of who you are! It can get hard and lonely sometimes, but there’s a whole community here who have your back.

If you are not trans

Please also get involved - don’t leave this day just up to us. Today is a day for you to support and listen to the trans community. Show us some love by reblogging some selfies and reading some stories, whether you browse through the tags listed above or stick to your mutuals. Now is a perfect opportunity to learn about our wonderful community and to look at some beautiful people. It’s a win-win, really.

Above all, I hope everyone has a fantastic TDoV! Have fun and keep it positive.

Lucius and Narcissa probably had this conversation
  • Lucius: Narcissa, did we ever discuss what we'd do if our son ever ended up gay
  • Narcissa: Well, in pureblood tradition, we would naturally force him to wed a woman and conceive an heir, and have male lovers on the side in secret. Why?
  • Lucius: True. So would we do that with Draco?
  • Narcissa: Is Draco gay?
  • Lucius: This has been the seventeenth time he's barged into my office talking about Potter.
  • Lucius: I'm starting to think he's more obsessed with the boy than the Dark Lord is.
  • Narcissa: That takes skill.
