Essentially. They haven’t said the word “transgender” and may or may not ever be allowed to, but in yesterday’s episode “Heinous,” Marco is essentially ‘outed’ to her parents as Miss Heinous comes to her house and explains that Princess Marco started an uprising in St. Olga’s, and demands justice. Marco is consistently gendered as female throughout the episode by everyone but her parents, even in the beginning when she’s not in the princess getup (Heinous actually compliments her ‘super cute new haircut.’)
It’s then confirmed that Marco has been continuing to inspire wayward princesses to resist their oppressors as Princess Marco, and has willfully encouraged and known about this and maintained this persona without her parents’ or Star’s knowledge, and she refers to herself as “Ya girl Marco” happily before being reminded about Heinous’s existence. After the episode ends and everyone is safe, Marco, her family, and Star have a game night, and Marco says something like, “Can I stay in the dress?”
The entire episode is also peppered with coming-out double entendres, where Marco’s parents say things like “Is there anything else we should know?” “I’m not sure we should be mad,” etc., and then afterwards it being implied they were talking about their child inciting the rebellion in St. O’s, and aren’t paying attention to the Princess thing.
Heinous isn’t in the Season 2 finale but still has some cliffhangers related to her plotline so Marco will most likely start being gendered as female in regular, non-St. O’s related episodes after some more plot with her happens in season 3, for now she’s still mostly closeted.
tl;dr Marco has been secretly presenting as female part-time since halfway through Season 1 and is undeniably coded as a closeted trans girl at this point, will almost certainly properly transition over the course of Season 3.
But guys just imagine, Talon gets word somehow that their developing some of the most innovative robotics technology in Numbani. They send out a few agents, maybe just Reaper and Sombra, to kidnap this so called ‘modern-day genius’ so that Talon can either convince them to work for them or just brainwash them into service. Expecting some old guy just like their last few missions they arrive at the robotics lab thinking this will be quick, only to be confronted by some eleven year old who kindly asks that they put the smaller robots back where they found them. Reaper, being Reaper, just pulls out his shotguns and gives the kid five seconds to run before things get 'loud’.
But no. Instead, she just smiles at the two, pulls out the controller from behind her back, and all you hear is the sound of machinery sprinting to life as she gladly gives them an example of just how advanced these new robotics really are.
I’d say the fight lasts a good two minutes? And all that’s left in the end is some discarded shotguns and some very colorful Spanish expletives when a certain hacker finds she can’t hack into a single device in the room.
There’s your template Blizzard, now go do something with it.
I don’t know how long ago the rest post about muscular trans women was posted or when these amazing people posted their selfies but when I saw them, something washed over me.
All of you looked so happy and feeling gorgeous and confident that i got inspired to draw you all! I’m sorry in advance if those selfies were posted on earlier stages of your transition, I can always take down the drawing, I have no problem on doing so!
In order that are @rocketmermaid@lady-feral@snarlahazard and @sogay4rey
I hope you all are having a great day, you have lighten up my day just by being yourselves.
((NOTE: from the text post I reblogged the only one ibdid not post was @/that-dyke because she left tumblr and it feels disrepectful to post it here. If anyone knows if she would like to see the drawing please contact me.))
hey could you explain the Bell & Clarke blue/tan shirt thing?
Hey anon! Sorry I’m replying to this so late, I just wanted to make sure I was able to think of a good answer for you.
I think a lot of it has to do with them being two sides of the same coin. And their shirts swapping colors runs throughout the entire series, not just s1 and s4. Like really. I was looking through old stills and they both literally only wear tan or blue with rare color changes in between
For reference, here’s a pic from Clarke in s1:
Tan shirt. and s2:
Blue shirt. And bellamy also wears a blue shirt in s2 (and s1 but we all already know that):
And he wears tan in s3:
I also found one more thing that I thought was interesting. The only times they wore anything but their colors (blue and tan), was when bellamy wore the mt. weather guard’s uniform (white)
And when Clarke started wearing black at the end of s2
and throughout s3
But then she’s right back to blue in s4
Look for yourself in other pictures even. Besides maybe a few times, they are always wearing these same colors and I don’t think it’s a coincidence. The fact that they swap them could also mean that they’ve really gone through everything together. They share most of the same burdens and completely understand and empathize with each other. It’s almost as if it’s an unspoken “i know you”
But really, you shouldn’t take my word for it. I honestly have no experience in costume or makeup in a field like this so please, if anyone else feels like they want to add something, feel free to do so.
I wanna practice with RPG Maker, so like this post if you want me to make a small map based off of your blog! I’ll also add a character sprite or two based on either your blog or a character I see on your blog. You can reply if you wanna specify the map type (field/world, exterior, interior or dungeon) and also if you want me to put something specific in or make something specific (ie. flower shop interior, snowy shrine or flowers arranged in a heart).
Note: I only have the sprites that came with the software to work with so don’t expect anything really pretty. I can make custom character sprites with the in-software customizer though!
I can see Efi controlling a robot in battle and hearing her little voice talking while doing it. Like, you destroy her robot and when you walk past it while she’s waiting to respawn, you can hear her saying encouraging stuff to her robot or something.
