and i hope this really inspires anyone out there who needs it

tbh I don’t write much about detransition (certainly not as much as the brilliant women who inspired me to do it in the first place) but I do just wanna say, in case anyone reading this is considering it now or in the future: it can be okay? like god knows I’m not a wise elder yet, it’s been less than 2 years since I started, but like,, a lot has changed in that time.. I was terrified, I had no idea how to start, no idea where I’d end up. it was, no joke, 100x scarier than transitioning at 15. but even having no idea what I was doing, it still worked out okay. it’s really inconvenient and difficult and frustrating and sometimes lonely - but so is being trans, and just being alive in the first place. with the added bonus that I’m now MASSIVELY more comfortable with myself & my body & my thoughts about gender. like I can’t overstate how much more effective it’s been to try & accept my body, dysphoria + all, than to try & change it. I kept waiting to feel regretful of my transition and the permanent changes I made to my body, but the regret hasn’t come. bodies change permanently, that’s what they do all the time for lots of reasons, and it doesn’t have to be a disaster. mine still does all the important things it used to, more or less, and it’s 99% the same as it would have been anyway. other people may not recognise me as a woman but for the first time in my life, I do! and I’m not just fine with it - I’m happy & proud about it. if you’re trans or questioning, remember that detransition happens sometimes and it’s okay and not the end of the world. detransitioned people are cool and whole and we’re out here making it work, so if you ever find yourself in this boat, don’t freak out, you’ll be okay

It was well into the new year and the weather was finally starting to warm up, or so you thought until you woke up to find the need to put on an extra jacket. It wasn’t quite summer yet, to your dismay, and that meant that exam season was slowly making its descent upon the students. Your other friends and colleagues all felt the pressure from the piling assignments given by relentless professors, along with any other jobs or worries on the side that kept the rest of their days just as busy.

For you particularly, it was a part-time job at a café that didn’t feel part-time at all. Being a poor college student, you needed all the extra money you could get, and that meant working right after your grueling morning classes during the weekdays, and even clocking in on the weekends whenever you were able to do so.

Even with your packed schedule, you were able to manage your time well enough; you wished you could say the same for your boyfriend.

So I can finally say that my Silver Age Hawkwoman cosplay is finally complete. After much hard work, those wings weren’t easy!, it’s done and absolutely perfect. I never feel more powerful than when I am in this costume. :)

I think the biggest thing with this cosplay, and with any of my cosplays, is I hope I can inspire some other women of color to feel confident and comfortable about cosplaying in general but especially as characters outside their ethnicity, no matter anyone’s opinion on the matter. By being seen, I hope I can challenge some thought processes in the nerd community and show that diversity does exist in the fandom. Things are changing and we have to change with it.

I also really love bringing attention to a character that otherwise has been kind of left out on the sidelines in the comic world who is a badass, strong woman. We need more female characters like her and every time I see a young person, like the girl above, who gush and want a photo when they see me, I’m glad they know that someone else out there loves her too. :)

in the wake of the Cursed Child

I thought I would make a post of all my personal Next Gen Headcanons for anyone else who might be looking for something to replace what I’ve just rejected as canon in the Harry potter world

so here we go

  • Albus is a Hufflepuff
  • Albus becomes friends with Scorpius
  • Rose tags along with Albus and also becomes friends with Scorpius
  • Scorpius thinks Rose is his Queen
  • She is
  • Harry works as Defense Against the Dark Arts Professor at Hogwarts (inspired by this post please read it)
  • Christmas is spent with the Weasley clan
  • James, Albus and Lily never ever doubt whether they are loved
  • Hermione works in a department of the Ministry called: Committee for the Rights and Protection of Magical Beings and Creatures
  • Ron occasionally helps out with Fred and- no George and- I made myself sad we’ll come back to this
  • Draco comes to Harry’s doorstep one day and is like “I grew up with two parents who loved me and you didn’t…. and I’m sorry for like everything” and it’s kinda awkward maybe they hug?
  • Draco loves Scorpius fiercely, like his parents loved him (because they did love him, why else would they run through the Battle of Hogwarts screaming for him at the end of the last book?)
  • After Albus and Scorpius become friends, the Malfoys get invited over for Christmas and are accepted as part of the clan (eventually)
  • When Harry’s kids are younger than 11 Harry sometimes brings them to Hogwarts and runs around with them on his shoulders etc, so they always feel like Hogwarts is a second home
  • Maybe Harry’s family lives near Hogsmeade, so when in 3rd year the kids are really excited to take their friends to all their favourite places
  • Albus Rose and Scorpius become a trio just like Harry Ron and Hermione
  • James picks on Albus sometimes because they’re siblings but in the end they love each other
  • When they’re on holidays and Albus is struggling with his homework, James sometimes comes in and sits on the end of his bed to help him (pretending he’s just being annoying by obnoxiously pointing out mistakes Albus has made so he can fix them)
  • (^ Albus knows what James is doing but never mentions it)
  • Rose and Scorpius are the brainy two of the trio
  • Albus is really good at Herbology and Neville feels like a proud father even though Albus isn’t his
  • Even though Rose is friends with Scorpius, she also took to heart ‘beat him on every test’ from Ron and they have a friendly rivalry which she continuously wins
  • Ron helps George with Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes and occasionally brings home treats/toys for Hugo and Rose
  • Modern Muggle Technology is becoming bigger and more widespread and the kids want to have things from both worlds
  • Albus Rose and Scorpius have an excursion into the Muggle World one day and thoroughly enjoy themselves, taking photos that don’t move with a Muggle camera
  • They put all their photos in a scrapbook and it’s fat and happy and full of smiles
  • Harry doesn’t always know what to say to his kids to cheer them up, but they know he’s there for them and that thought comforts them
  • Ginny is much better at knowing what the kids need and helps Harry love and look after them
  • If there are any rumours about Scorpius being the son of Voldemort, Scorpius started them himself
  • Rose almost believed the rumours when she first heard them, until she realised Scorpius has exactly the same nose as Draco
  • James still believes them
The One I Really Want

Tentoo/Rose. ~2k. This was inspired by something Billie may or may not have said at Montreal con about Rose ditching Tentoo. My bae shutupandlovetennant​ was very upset and really needed some cheering up, so I hope this helps her, and anyone else who was offended by even the idea of her saying this (i’m still not convinced tbh, I want a video). I hope this can help you a little bit! Unashamedly fluffy, though it starts out rough. I won’t mess with you guys right now!

The Doctor fidgets a little with his bowtie in the floor mirror, pulling the ends then loosening it again at the collar in a vicious cycle. He’s never like wearing these unlucky tuxedos, but Rose changed all that the first night they came home from a Vitex event and she thanked him gratuitously for dressing up for her. With her mouth. He shivers pleasantly at the memory even now, though that was weeks ago now, and shakes his head to will away a stiffie before it can make them late. He’s much less hesitant to go anywhere ‘black tie’ now that he’ll always have Rose to save him from any misfortune that may arise. Still, the bowties always rub his neck the wrong way. They just feel tighter than the regular ties he likes.

“Doctor!” Rose calls from somewhere outside their bedroom.

“Sorry, love, I’m nearly done!” he calls back, remembering how frustrated she was the last time they planned a proper date and he made them miss the play by fussing a minute too long with his hair.

Retracing Footsteps

Inspired by the prompt “i got you for secret santa so i got you this really expensive but sentimental gift that you’ve always wanted, hoping you’ll never find out it’s from me - and that i’ve been in love with you 1234567 years” because it was the first one of the list that jumped out at me.

Took me forever but I finally finished it yay!

“All right guys, gather ‘round.”

The occupants in the Cortex of S.T.A.R. Labs stopped what they were doing to turn and look at Cisco and Iris as they came out of one of the attached laboratory rooms, the engineer shaking a large beaker filled with crumpled balls of paper as he walked.

“So I know things have been tense with Zoom around, to say the least,” Iris started once she had everyone’s attention, “But Christmas is coming up, and anyone who knows me knows it’s like my favourite holiday.”

There was a light snort from the speedster, and Joe let out a laugh that was quickly muffled by a hand. Barry crossed his arms as he regarded his best friend, leaning against the central computer desk. “That’s the understatement of the year.”
