what is a “russ” and why does it seem like the biggest deal in SKAM ( aka vilde ) ?

so if you’ve seen from season 1, you’ve heard about the famous “russebussen”, or how in season 2 you see william and his friends partying in a bus. so you’ve probably been like “wtf is this shit? do norwegians actually obsess over this?”, well the answer is yes and no. but i’ll explain more of that later on in this post.

so to the first thing, what is a russ? well to sum it up shortly a russ is someone who is finishing up their last year of videregående, or as some would call it, high school. 

russefeiringen or russetia will normally last for about a month, starting in april and ending on the 17th of May, the norwegian constitutional day. during this period you will often find severely sleep deprived, hung over 19 year olds. 
but the russ do other things than drink and party; they also dare each other to the most hilarious things like walking around with bread shoes, go on a date in the school cafeteria with a first grader ( they’re 16 don’t worry! ), walk to the shops or around town with skiis on their feet, sit in a trolly and order a happy meal at McDonalds drive through, and so much more. 

but you also need to watch out, because if you are a first grader or a second grader, you can easily end up on the “terrorliste”, meaning that the 3rd years fuck you over like duck taping you to a pole whilst they throw water, flower, egg and all other stuff. you can become kidnapped, where the russ will take you and drive you to a place and then just leave you there, but they mostly leave you at a buss stop and make sure that you have the money to get home again. 

but the russ often have fights among each other, where the “enemy” can be the neighbouring city, the schools that are close to yours or the famous “blå russ vs rød russ” ( i’ll get into the colours in another post ), or the østkanten vs vestkanten ( east and west parts of oslo, the rich kids vs the middle to lower class kids ) 
now during the fights, you will often throw eggs at each other, egging down cars or other russ. the meeting grounds are trashed after the “fight”, but it’s all for a little fun.

now to the russebus and russebil. both extremely popular amongst the russ.

now this is a russebus, they don’t need to look like this, in fact if you google russebusser, you can find a lot of really cool busses. 
but anyways, russebusses normally cost around 1 million norwegian kroners, but normally they can reach up to 4, depending on how much work you’re putting into the bus.  
now people normally save up from the 9th or 10th grade with a group of their friends just so they can get this bus. the busses look amazing, and is a great place to sleep during landsstreff and a lot of room to party in, on the top and lower decks. this is mostly popular in the oslo area, but you can find them all over the country.

now this is a russebil, again really popular choice for the russ. here a smaller group of friends will save up money to buy the car ( or perhaps their parents have one for them to have ) and they decorate the inside and outside, often writing their names on the car. 
now i would say that the cars are more popular, because of the huge price difference. but hey, if you got the money and if you saved up, why not?

now all of this is all fun and all, but the russ also have to be extremely careful not to party too hard, specially with our new fraværsgrense of 10%. and the fact that our exam period is right in the middle of russetia. so whilst you are celebrating that YAY IM DONE WITH SCHOOL, you’re actually not and have to worry about reading with a hangover. the politicians did this in the 70′s in hopes that the russ would party less, well it didn’t work at all.

of course you don’t have to be a russ, but it’s fun and it’s why we go all out, it’s our last celebration before we head of to universities or jobs. so this is the shortest version of what the russetia is and i swear i’ll write up what the different colours means and the different types of russ you can be, but that should be in a post of it’s own


I am desperate
If nothing else
In a holding pattern
To find myself

I talk in circles
I talk in circles
I watch for signals
For a clue

anyways trans people are just as worthy of love (including romantic love!) as cis people and we are not disgusting or abnormal or weird. treating us any differently than you would treat a cis person is transphobic. not everyone is cis and constantly treating trans people as “other” is a really shitty thing to do. if this hurts your cis feelings, good, it means you’re being shitty and you need to examine why you’re being shitty. thanks and have a good night

I really love the idea of simple misunderstandings for the sake of humor and stuff, so anyways pls imagine everyone in the bureau of balance becoming slowly more aware of Kravitz’s existance but not being able to find out exactly who he is

Carey and Killian start playing a game called “preference or powerful” b/c they’ve met Kravitz a couple times and have seen the kind of clothes he wears and Carey’s convinced it’s because he’s just a weird goth man. Killain thinks something about Kravitz rubs her the wrong way and that he’s probably more powerful then he seems, but because he never actually told them his name and b/c he doesnt use his accent at the BoB they havent figured out that he’s kravitz

Carey enlists magnus and angus into the game but magnus has never actually seen Kravitz around so all he has is second hand descriptions that have led him to believe Taako’s dating the Strangest Man Alive. Meanwhile, Angus has everything figured out pretty quickly, but he’s not really sure if he sound say anything.  Merle has seen Kravitz, but everytime he has, he just assumes it’s a BoB employee he doesn’t know about, and therefore doesn’t care.

Avi & No3113 both see Kravitz turn into a skeleton at one point but Avi just stares for a second and goes “well this is not my problem” and decides to never mention it. No3113 told Carey and Killian eventually but she feels bad about it b/c she thinks she’s chosing Killian’s side.

Meanwhile, Johann and Leon are trying not to get sucked into the game.Johann’s met Kravitz once and they had a very small bonding session that was basically just Kravitz going “hey i know shit about music” so he’s convinced Kravitz is like, the best person ever. Leon doesn’t want to talk about anything related to Taako, which includes his boyfriend.

everyone agrees not to tell the director because she has enough to worry about without someone telling her a stranger keeps showing up on the base


I made a binder review video in case any other baby ftms/transmascs are looking for options. All 3 binders I review are good and serve different purposes. Also my voice dropped again soooo if you don’t care about binders but wanna hear what I sound like almost 3 months on T here ya go haha.

You told me once a fallen woman should be forgiven.

But I didn’t say that I could forgive. I can’t…
Yes, ask her hand again, be magnanimous, and so on?
Yes, that would be very noble but I can’t be that man
