as someone with no gender and no connections to masculinity or femininity, my transition isn’t so much about medical things but rather about the personal act of growing - growing more and more into my true self.
happy trans day of visibility! don’t forget sylvia rivera and marsha p. brown, our heroes.
If there was one thing Lila Rossi loved, it was chocolate. Especially when it was baked into something yummy. Luckily, if there was one thing Marinette Dupain-Cheng loved to do besides fashion, it was baking. Given the school year was coming to a close, Marinette felt some homemade chocolate turnovers were in order, and her friends more than agreed. When the group gathered at their usual spot during break, she doesn’t expect their lunch to be any different than usual, that is, until she notices Lila alone on a park bench.
A pang of guilt hid the little baker. Lila had had things rough at the school ever since she got akumatised, and Marinette felt terribly guilty for the whole ordeal. She wanted to make things right between her and their Italian newcomer, but could never find the words to say.
“You good girl?” Alya snaps Marinette out of her trance. “Why are you staring at Rossi?”
“I just feel bad about the whole Volpina thing,” Marinette shrugs.
“That wasn’t your fault, Marinette, Ladybug just got defensive,” Adrien gives her a reassuring smile.
“Yeah…” Marinette glances at the box of pastries in the middle of their table, dropping the topic.
Soon enough, their allotted lunch hour was over. As the group packed their things, Marinette stayed back to pack the leftover turnovers safely in the delivery box they had arrived in. Everything was smooth sailing until,
“Oof!” The cardboard crumples against her chest as she turns around and runs right into another person. When Marinette looks up, she sees Lila Rossi, pastry flakes and chocolate crumbs dotting her shirt, a blush covering her cheeks.
“Woah! Sorry!” Lila exclaims.
“It’s alright, squished doesn’t mean inedible,” Mari gives a small smile.
“What are they?”
“Homemade chocolate turnovers,” Marinette flips the box lid open. “Want one?”
“Are you sure?” Lila bites her lip, trying as hard as she can to resist the warm treats. “I mean you made them for your friends.”
“Who says you and I can’t be friends?”
Lila stares at the raven haired girl, waiting for it to be a joke. When she’s sure it’s not, she pulls a pastry from the pile and takes a bite.
“Wow!” The young Italian practically yells. “Did you make these yourself? They’re so good!”
“I had a little help from my parents,” Marinette chuckles. “Thank you though.”
“No thank you for this,” Lila says and promptly shoves the rest of the turnover into her mouth.
Both girls pause as they realize what just happened, and then bust out laughing. When they settle back down, both can feel heat rising to their cheeks again.
“W- we should get going,” Marinette says. “You can come sit with us if you want.”
“Thank you,” Lila can feel the blush move to her ears.”
“And of course,” Marinette breaks the last turnover in half, handing a piece to Lila. “You’re always welcome in the bakery for all the pastries you like.”
Lila felt her heart do a turnover as she walked back to class with Marinette, and from that day on she had a new favourite dessert.

“You make me feel so happy just to be around you. The way you smile, your beautiful laugh, the way you look at me, It brings me such joy.” With JackCrutchie. ❤
I was going to write some nice, short one-shot. And now we’ve got this 6,000+ behemoth. Whatever, it was fun. Hope y’all like this one!
Also, shout out to one of my greatest friends up at college, who sat me down and helped me come up with a realistic plan for Crutchie’s life–which, is basically a combination of her plans and her friend’s plans–and then proceeded to threaten me if I didn’t let her read this after it was finished.
Crutchie had a plan. It was the perfect plan and he
wouldn’t allow anything to get in the way of him achieving his dreams. Nothing
would stop him; he wouldn’t let it. When Crutchie had started college, he had
fallen in love with the anthropology class that he had taken to cover some
liberal arts requirement that his adviser had informed him was mandatory.
Crutchie had immediately changed majors and never looked back. Suddenly,
Crutchie knew exactly what he wanted to do: he would major in anthropology and
he would find a way to work and identify bodies, in order to connect them back
to their families.
He knew exactly how he would get to that point. First, he
would graduate with his bachelor’s degree in anthropology and two minors in
biology and chemistry. He would get his masters in biological anthropology at,
either Michigan State or UT Knoxville. Through that degree, he would be able to
pursue either contemporary mass grave excavation, or stable isotope
identification methods. Both would allow him to work with mass graves. After
studying their programs, Crutchie had felt as if those schools offered what he
needed to achieve his goal. Once he had gotten his masters, Crutchie hoped to
work or volunteer, either through the UN or an NGO to excavate mass graves. Ideally,
he hoped to work in Afghanistan, but he knew that he would be content anywhere.
As long as he was helping these people, long dead, be connected to their
posterity. Maybe Crutchie would even get a job at the Smithsonian or the Museum
of Natural History in New York. He was open to that avenue, as well, so long as
he had worked with mass grave excavations, in the end.
Really, Crutchie had everything planned out, and he could
not afford to be distracted from his goal and life-long pursuit.
Which was why Jack Kelly’s appearance into his life was not
Contains: Edward Elric short rants read off by Yuri Plisetsky, what more can you ask for tbh
Yuri, basically, is short. If he was as extra as Edward Elric, then he would probably say a few things along these lines.
A/N: This was funnier in my head I swear. Basically I had the idea at three in the morning and it left me giggling and I wanted to see how it’d turn out, and I’d say not too bad. I hope you guys enjoy it and that it makes you chuckle at least, thank you for listening!
Flinthamilton appreciation week, day 1: Why You Love Them
While the quote above is James talking about Silver and Madi, I feel like it applies to him and Thomas as well. They’re my strongest OTP ever because they really balance each other and keep each other grounded. I tried to show that balance in the picture. James is filled with fire and rage but Thomas helps him to keep cool. On the other hand, Thomas is a dreamer and James helps him to keep things realistic.
They are both incredibly driven and both strive for a better world, but
they each have their own ways to achieve it. But somehow, they always
seem to find a happy medium. I think that makes them incredibly strong
as a couple.
‘Thomas, he sees only the principle. The right. It’s inspiring. It can be intoxicating. It’s why I love him. But you, you see the world as it is. You see it’s truths and how to navigate them, how to bend them to your will. It’s why I love you. Men like Thomas need men like you to protect them from the world, and that is what I’m asking you to do.’ - Miranda
Manhandled Sawamura is every fangirls favorite fan service so all the members get to manhandle the shit out of Sawamura the only one who doesn't is haruichi and that's because every time he tries he turns into a blushing mess just think about all the possibilities think about how jealous Miyuki and Kuramochi would get think about it... why is this quickly becoming kuramisawa I didn't intend for this to become this way
OH YES just imagine this:
haruichi is too cute tho eijun can’t resist
MAKING THE FANGIRLS GOING GWAH!!!
Not everyone likes this tho
Furuya wants to hug Haruichi too
No problems anyway because he gets his revenge (their duo is very much shipped by fangirls because of the height difference and because furuya gets very daring on stage with him only)
