I mean, I could’ve just answered in text, but that’s a losers attitude. I spent all evening on this like a fool :’D. I wanted to do it justice, this HC means a lot to me haha XD.
I’d say this is maybe between second and third year, or maybe early third year? Other transzawa stuff here and here(I hc a lot of the Shouta’s I paint as trans but its not the point of the pictures, so its not exactly visible, but anyone’s welcome to tag him as such!)
Sorry about the long post, and all the sketches! My sketches are tagged as mal sketches, if you want to blacklist!
finding out that in maggie’s early early early drafts of trc gansey was literally an 80 year old man was one of the illuminating experiences of my life. it’s one of those things where you’re like “?? what???” but then you look back and of course. how else would you get a character like gansey other than writing an old man and being like “but nope wait let’s make him 17 instead”
hello friends so i’ve always been very vocal about my sexuality on this blog in terms of being bisexual. the bisexual label gave me a home in the LGBT community that i desperately needed growing up and in my early adult life.
but as the years have passed, i’ve examined a lot of my own behaviors. my standards are ridiculously high for men, like i’m waiting for them to say something i don’t like so i can stop talking to them. i haven’t been with a man since my relationship almost 4 years ago. i genuinely loved him, but he was the last for me in a long string of men who abused, assaulted, and mistreated me, and who i allowed to do it because a man liked me, and i should just be thankful, right?
i deserve better than settling. i think about marriage with a man and i know i never want it. men make me uncomfortable, the thought of ending up with a man forever is something i can’t process, and there are so many things about heterosexual relationships that i just don’t want.
i haven’t dated a girl since middle school. i haven’t kissed one since i suggested roleplaying games in elementary school that involved me playing the guy so i had a wife. i don’t have any tangible evidence to solidify my attraction to women, but what i do have is the certainty that i love being around women. they make me feel safe, my standards for them aren’t anywhere near as high as they are for men. i love the idea of saying “my girlfriend” or “my wife” someday.
it took me awhile to come to this conclusion because i thought i wasn’t allowed to use a label. i’ve been with men and genuinely loved them, so obviously i’m attracted to them right? but as i’ve learned and researched, that’s okay. maybe bisexual fit me at one point in my life, but it doesn’t now.
so to get to the point, because i always want to share my life with you guys, and i want to be honest about where i am, and because as i’ve come to the conclusion, i’ve been dying to just say it and tell everyone:
early fanon Matt: I can’t BELIEVE you dragged a 14-year-old into an active war zone, you put my little sister in danger! *protective older brother archetype*
canon Matt: *hits blunt and tries to pick up chicks by playing the guitar on college campuses* has anyone heard in the last five minutes that my little sister Pidge is the coolest person and can literally do anything? WOO
March 10th is Wheatley’s designated hatchday!
I wanted to make a special post for my little wheat noodle. He’s turning 3 this year. I got him at only 4 months old and it feels like yesterday, but by June I will have officially had him for three years. Time flies.
Happy hatchday, Wheatley! Love you and hope to have you for many years to come!
