a story about myself

I woke up this morning to learn of what happened in Manchester last night and it was utterly terrifying as I live close to Manchester and I knew so many that were at the show, luckily everyone I knew is okay physically but I can’t even comprehend what some of them saw in the panic. I can’t even begin to imagine how it would have felt to be in that situation myself, as each time a hear another story about what they experienced today sent chills through me. My heart and thoughts go out to everyone involved and their families and friends, and I hope you are all safe xx

ok this isnt to poke sleeping bears or any of that shit but.

To any and all Hidekane shippers (or any other bloodthirsty kenxwhoever shippers). 

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD
Please dont attack Ishida for the newer chapters of TG:re

Its his story to do what he wants with his own characters. I get you would be mad about your OTP not being canon or whatever but its really not worth attacking the creator for his own story.

Dont make the poor man dislike his own fandom.

like not to be dramatic

but When We Rise is lifechanging

people are talking about how it feels outdated, how it’s getting low ratings, etc

but like

these new tv shows that they’re comparing it to aren’t changing lives

I’m learning things about the history of the lgbtq+ community that I had no idea about

I don’t know that this can be judged by the regular metrics because I think that it’s more than just a show

It feels like a story being told to me about where we’ve come from, and I think it’s changing the way that I see the world that we live in now

Some days, I just really need you all over again. I recognize the fact that I ought to be without you–and I’ve become very good at being alone–but sometimes I just don’t want to be. Sometimes I need you to slide your hands down to my hips and to pull me into your chest like I mean as much to you as I used to. Some days it’s comforting to just remember what it was like to be addicted.

If you ever think your 12 year old self was an idiot just remember this: 

one time when I was in seventh grade I decided to walk home from the community center without wearing any shoes. But it was like 98 degrees outside, so obviously the pavement was hot as balls, but I stubbornly continued to walk home barefoot. Long story short I got second degree burns from the pavement and painful blisters on every part of my feet. When I had to explain to my parents why the hell I walked home barefoot I told them that my shoes were hurting my feet. I ended up going to go see doctors, and I wore inserts in my shoes for three years. My parents even considered surgery to fix my feet so that they wouldn’t hurt. 

I never had the courage to tell them that the reason why I walked barefoot that one day was not because my feet hurt, but because, being an avid fan of Avatar: The Last Airbender, I had wanted fucking callouses on my feet like Toph

Yuri on Ice interview translation - PASH! 2017/05 (p24-25)

I am pleased to bring you the very first interview with director Sayo Yamamoto!!! You don’t know how much I’ve been waiting for this… This one is pretty general because of course she has never been interviewed before so they are asking her the basics, but it’s very interesting to finally hear things from her perspective too, since she’s the one who started it all. More interviews with her will be appearing in other magazines in the near future, I’m looking forward to those ones too.

Also, I believe a bright future is to be expected for Yuri on Ice, since she seems to have lots of plans…!! (I was shivering typing out the translation, lol)

Translation is under the cut.

Interview (first appearance in media!)
The world of “Yuri on Ice” that director Yamamoto wanted to create
With 8 notebooks full of notes in one hand, director Sayo Yamamoto has answered our interview for the first time. We have asked her how this new animation that no one had ever seen before was born.

Okay but. LGBT+ Identities as super powers. What if Genderfluid individuals could transform how they look? What if Agender people could blend in like chameleons? What if Trans and Gay people could see into someone’s soul? Or Asexual folk can read peoples Auras because they’re not “blinded” by sexual attraction? Questioning people can read others’ minds. And Pan people. They see everything, a.k.a they get vague glimpses into the future. Androgynous and Aromantic people can block themselves from things like mind reading.

Demi-Genders have two gender oriented powers rather than one for gender and one for sexuality.

Think of the possibilities.

I’m unwilling to turn you into a sob story, but at the same time I refuse to make small what you did. Leave that to other people, for there will always be those who tell me that I’ve written too many words about this, spent too much time dwelling on it. But the huge fact that everyone ignores is that no one knows what it felt like to know and to be known by you the way I did.

I.M IN BEAUTIFUL (ACOUSTIC VER.) M COUNTDOWN STAGE (170511).

You do not have a say
in how I do my hair,
how I dress,
how I walk and how I talk.
You do not decide for me
who I love, or how to love.
I am not something like clay –
something that you can
mold and shape
into however you like.
I am my own person.
I am independent.
And you do not control me.

A Story A Day #94 (k.m.)

Welcome to the deep end, kid

Yuri manga by women about women (who aren't in high school)

Sadly a lot of them are one shots, but there’s a few longer ones. A lot of yuri manga is tragically too short and I’m always left wanting more. D: 

After some struggles with myself, I ended up putting stories about college aged women so long as it’s not “innocent school life” heavy. 

Yamaji Ebine

  • Love my Life (this one has a movie. A uni student coming out to her father and finding that her parents were both queer as well.)
  • Indigo Blue (A novelist caught between feelings for her boyfriend but also her feelings for another woman.)
  • Free Soul (22 year old aspiring manga artist writing a manga about a black jazz singer. Artist falls for a trumpeter of a jazz band.)
  • Sweet Lovin Baby (A young woman befriends a lesbian couple and falls for them. With three other short stories.)  

Morishima Akiko

  • Conditions for Paradise- An OL in love with a world hopping freelance journalist
  • We’re Aiming for Love Now (Journalist and a cutie in a cosplay store)
  • Happy Picture Diary - (REALLY FUNNY. An social worker and an editor’s daily life together. All chibi but with some really real lesbian life jokes)
  • Off-Time (an aging lesbian short one shot)
  • 20-Year-Old Girl x 30-Year-Old Maiden- (one shot, a 30 year old sensitive about her age with a 20 year old woman in her art class)
  • Princess of the Stars- (short- almost didn’t make it b/c high school flashbacks but it’s college roomies and it’s short and sweet- and challenges that “girls experiment with girls in high school then grow out of it” thing that people in Japan sometimes think)

Other Artists: 

  • Ohana Holoholo: Torino Shino (Saya lives with her bisexual former girlfriend and her son. Nico, an actor living up stairs and a close friend, drops by for a visit almost everyday.  Somewhat like family, and somewhat not, a story about their lives)
  • My Unique Day-Sakamoto Mano (women in an acting troupe together. one shot)
  • Abracadabra- Tanaka Minoru (a magician and a cute girl dealing with confessing to a girl for the first time)
  • Lonely Wolf, Lonely Sheep- Mizutani Fuka (two women with the same name meet. Warnings for self harm)
  • Cirque Arachne: Saida Nika (Two women working in the circus in a trapeze act. Stellar cute.)   
  • Maple Love- Otsu Hiyori (meeting in college; really cute)

Two that I recommend but are set apart from the others because one is written by a man and one is written with the male audience in mind respectively

  • Kusari ha mou iranai- Uso Kurata; two Office ladies
  • Octave- Akiyama Haru (seinen manga; a talent manager and a songwriter)

This is by no means an exhaustive list and I know there’s more (one particularly that I wanted to put on here but couldn’t remember the title of) so feel free to add on your favorite adult queer lady manga to the list!

..and after all this time, I tell everyone that I’m happy. It isn’t a lie, I promise you, I am happy. But being happy doesn’t mean that sometimes I don’t relapse. Some days, I can’t tell white from black because the self doubt eats at me. Some times, I get lonely, and I convince myself that I can’t ever exactly ‘fit in’. Some nights, I do wish I had someone to hold me, and convince me that I’m okay, and if I am not, I will be. Some days, I just need a reminder that I am not what I am going through; I am not the sum of my broken parts; and that I am much more than what I make myself out to be.
—  something I won’t ever say out loud

“You smell like punch, Nii-chan…”


((Just a little thing to transition! I’ll be working on asks and Daily will be spending time with her dates now! Also I miss drawing Daily’s long hair pretend the curls fell out or something))

SSU Student Union (ft. Melanie and Graham in the distance)

But I don’t think people really get what I mean when I say “I love musicals.”

I don’t just love a soundtrack with fancy tap numbers and great belting. I love it for so many other reasons. The cast is like a family to me. The songs speak words I’ve always wanted to hear but never could find a way to say. Watching musicals or singing them just for even a second makes me feel like I’m not alone. I’m not alone in the things I feel. I’m not alone because these characters, whether fictional of real, they’re there. They may not be real true people. But they’re there. Their voice speaks TO me. Especially Jack Kelly’s most of all. “Trapped where there ain’t no future/even at seventeen.” I’m 18. I’m still trying to figure out where my life is going. But I know I’m not alone. Because even if he’s not real, he is to me. And that’s all that matters. When I watch or perform a musical I don’t feel so hopeless anymore. I don’t feel like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders. I’m someone else. I’m involved in someone else’s story. If I can throw myself into something I’m so passionate about then it’s the perfect thing for me to do. At my first audition I was nervous. Crazy nervous. I figured I wouldn’t get the lead but might as well try. Afterwards the director asked me to come talk to her and of course I’m thinking “oh shit what did I do wrong” and she told me, “That was one of the best auditions I’ve seen in a long time.” And that has still stuck with me months later. Whether you’ve been doing this since you were 7 or 17 theatre is something for everyone. Yes, there will be people who will try to bring you down. They’ll tell you you’ll never make it, that your singing is awful, that you’re dreaming too big. Everyone starts somewhere. They may laugh but they won’t care anymore when you keep your head up high and with confidence knowing YOU. CAN. DO. THIS. OKAY? And even when you can’t, take a break. Not from singing. But a break to look back and see how far you’ve come and where you want to go. Because you can go far kid. You really can.

This is the story of two internet friends.
They met on a message board one night and soon became fast friends. They spoke with each other for years and years and years and one day they decided to meet up in real life. They quickly figured out a time and place to meet up in a city that was an equal distance between them. It was a public place and they were both on time but they couldn’t see the other.

So they each sent a message to the other asking where they were. Both of them were convinced the other was lying so they each took a picture of a nearby landmark and sent it. Confusion came on both their parts since they were literally standing on top of each other but they still couldn’t see the other.

They eventually figured out that they lived in parallel universes and that the internet was what connected them and allowed them to speak.
