The Semi Casual:
You're an average gamer whose here to have fun but still wouldn't mind wining. Maybe you just want a new loot box, maybe you've been invited to a friend's rad new custom game-whatever the reason, you have time off from work or school and need to unwind. If you need to play healer, you'll play healer. Your team could use a second tank? You can play Widowmaker the next game right? You're comfortable with almost all game modes but will dive into Competitive if you're feeling confident. Your POTG is a welcome surprise and something you likely worked to earn through teamwork.(Possible Mains: Lucio, Orisa, Zarya)
The Glory Hound:
You have one objective and it's definitely not the one you're supposed to be defending. You want your Play Of the Game and anyone who steals your kills is getting cussed out in the group chat. You could care less about team composition, you have your main and anyone who tells you to switch is just jealous of your awesome skills. Similar to The Single Player, teamwork is not your priority as everyone is just a pawn to your inevitable success. Your team winning is cool and all, but what you really want is for YOU to be the winner. You are a monster in Competitive but in the worst possible ways. (Possible Mains: Bastion, Hanzo)
The Sore Loser:
You define unreliable. You may as well change your last name to Left The Game, because that's what you're always fucking doing. If a team isn't upholding to your standards, you'll ditch before you even see the inside of your spawn room. If any of your teammates are any less than three stars, they don't deserve the right to brush screen names with you. And if you choose to stay with a team the whole way, you BETTER be winning or else you're out. Despite your incredibly selective choice of teammates, your friend list is completely empty and you scoff at anyone who dares send you one.(Possible Mains: Symmetra, Hanzo)
The Party Goer:
You're here to have fun. "It's just a game" has been hardwired into your code as you don't do jack shit for your team, you're more concerned about showing off your new emote in the heat of battle. You're a talkative fella with a whole wheel of the most grating voice lines your character currently has. Who cares if you win? At least you'll be in a hilarious pose in all of the kills cams. Your teammates may admire your casual nature, though you're so casual that you've become an inconvenience. Yeah, you'll get eliminations every once in awhile but it's only because no one laugh emoted back at you yet and you have ten seconds left to move this truck (Possible Mains: Junkrat, D.Va, Winston)
The Grudge Holder:
You are out for blood, my friend, and it's rooted in a deep, personal hatred from a certain someone on the enemy team. Your worst enemy is the kill cam because it has the audacity to catch an image of you dying and forever cementing your target throughout the rest of the game. Fuck your team, you want to get even with that one Pharah who blew you up from across the map. And that McCree who had the nerve to shoot a Deadye in your direction? He's screwed once you get out of spawn. Your teammates have been spanning Group Up for five minutes straight but you're still waiting for that bullshit Symmetra to show back up so you can kill her again and teabag the corpse. (Possible Mains: Widowmaker, Roadhog, Mei)
The Single Player:
You are a lone wolf through and through, here to carry your team with a twenty player kill streak with a single use of your Ultimate. You're the guy who rushes into enemy lines without a plan, relying on your own bravado to keep you alive before you're spamming for heals half way across the map. You're likely oblivious to what you're supposed to be defending...Or are you attacking this time? Nah, doesn't matter! You got your main before anyone else did so you get to show off your rad skills. God help anyone playing healer. (Possible Mains: Genji, Soldier 76, Reaper)
Throwback Thursday to the one night that changed it all! The night where I forever painted the target across my back! The night the LA Kings hosted their first ever Pride Night ❤️💛💚💙💜🌈 🏳️🌈👑🏒🥅🦁 unfortunately there’s so many pics I can’t share thanks to all the wonderful porn blogs out there that make it so I can’t show the full story or anybody else’s faces 😒 but anyways. I met hundreds of people that night, thousands of pictures were taken, and people just had to know my story. For most, I was the first trans person they ever knowingly met, and I was now a face they could relate all of the media to. I met some of the greatest people that I now consider my family, those who love me for me, something my blood family couldn’t. You never know when, where, or how you will find your love or your natural space, but I promise it’s out there for you somewhere. I’m so glad that I was able to find mine.
Okay just so you guys know I don’t branch out a lot in terms of the ships I read about so what you’re about to get is a lot of Robstar and a lot of Spaqua with some others
Clueless (long fic set between Go! and Divide and conquer. Not so much romance as friendship) Communal (sequel to clueless, post-Tokyo. ROMANCE!!! oneshot, don’t need to read clueless beforehand but some references to it are made) Robin’s Guide to Tamaranian Affection (oneshot) Starfire’s Guide to Getting Into Robin’s Pants (companion piece to one above, oneshot) Robin’s Favorite Holiday (oneshot) A Moment of Shocking Clarity (super adorable oneshot) Touch (This one is my current favorite I love it a lot and its perf and fluffy, Also there is a series that follows it but those stories are kinda dark but this one is light and beautiful. The others are really good too if you wanna put yourself through the pain and then there’s an alternative sequel that I actually prefer to the real sequel) The Only One (alternative first kiss fic) Settling Matters (Post-Tokyo oneshot) Intoxicated (Dick goes to a nightclub with Wally for Wally’s birthday and surprise the girls are there and they’re drunk and Dick thinks they won’t recognize him lmao) Mist & Shadows (Robin doesn’t approve of Starfire kissing other boys even though they’re not together smh) Soap (short and fluffy goodness) Persuading Robin (not the happiest of endings but it’s fine I’m fine you can slip it into canon)
Re: Your latest post on 'commodified' tzai: for some reason, I was struck with the mental image of 'redeemed' Vader having the 'evil' idea to mention that his former mentor, Obi-Wan Kenobi, used to love drinking tea, and he had that one specific blend, what was it now, he really misses that - and the Galaxy promptly forgets tzai as it falls all over itself to be the first to discover 'Master Kenobi's Special Blend'. (Which was tea leaves, hot water, and a splash of Coreillian brandy.)
Wellllll, I don’t think that would entirely distract people: after all, Tatooine slave culture is the new happening thing, and no matter how much Anakin talks up missing his old mentor’s “special brew,” the plain fact is Kenobi is yesteryear’s news, whereas Anakin has (much to his own disgust) all the glamour of having been a successful double agent for years, plus the soap opera that is the Skywalker family and their ultimate reunion.
So I think he’d still toss Kenobi’s “special blend” out there, which would indeed draw some attention. But then he might have to fully embrace his inner Ekkreth and just have some fun with it.
Picture this: Anakin calls up ten of the top media agencies in the galaxy. He promises them each an exclusive. As part of that exclusive, he tells them the top secret Skywalker recipe for tzai.
All ten media outlets release their “exclusives.”
All ten tzai recipes are different.
(And, of course, none of them are actually the Skywalker blend at all. The majority of them aren’t even palatable. Some of them use ingredients that can’t even be found on Tatooine. Anakin made them all up on the spot after meeting each of his interviewers and doing a quick bit of sizing up to see what he could get away with.)
So the mystery continues. And, as a bonus, the mystery of Kenobi’s Special Blend also continues. (Though the truth in that case is disappointingly simple. Kenobi’s special blend is any kind of tea he had on hand, plus a liberal dose of alcohol. Brandy is preferred, but other things will do in a pinch.)
-A woman came through wearing a shirt that said, “Camp Wheretheheckrwe”. Finally, a brand of comedy that I can relate to.
-A manager made me a Starbucks Pink Drink. I can see why this drink’s popularity caused a shortage in coconut milk. It tasted like liquid flowers, but with less chlorophyll.
-A girl dressed in all pink, tutu, shoes, bow, and all, attempted to make an escape. She unbuckled herself and stood up in the toddler seat, and attempted to jump the bar and get out, before her handler placed her back in confinement, much to her chagrin and dismay.
-While in the bathroom, a man’s phone began to ring. With no warning, Lorde’s “Royals” was suddenly blaring throughout the room. He then started angrily yelling at his phone, “ANSWER! ANSWER!” Shockingly, this did not work, and the song was still playing as I left.
-A boy decided to act out, but wisely wanted to avoid any actual repercussions. While unloading the cart, he would wind up as he removed each item, as if he were going to throw it angrily onto the conveyor belt, then at the last moment gently place it down. I feel a deep sense of comradery and understanding for this boy.
-I have made the realization that after the age of seventy, people only carry around either hundred dollar bills, or pockets full of unreasonable amounts of loose change. I do not know yet the significance of this discovery, but I will crack the Elder Code one day.
-As a little girl was waiting in line, I heard her cheerfully exclaim that she has no gum, while pointing at the chewing gum rack. She was not asking for gum. She was not complaining about not having gum. She just decided to gleefully announce to everyone in the vicinity that, at the time, she did not have any gum in her possession.
-I then caused an existential crisis in this same girl. I handed her a sticker. Her face was filled with a sense of terror at the responsibility I had just given her. She could not decide where to place it. She was thoroughly shaken by this. I eventually handed her a second sticker so that she would not have to make such a weighty decision on such short notice. This solved the dilemma immediately.
-I have discovered the ultimate form of pure confusion, and that is children not understanding how stickers work and attempting to stick wax paper to their foreheads. It is truly a marvel to behold.
-A woman ominously wandered the front of the store, repeating to herself, “I should have known better. I should have known better. I should have known better.” My shift ended before I was able to ascertain whether or not she had reason to have known better. I remain confident that she did her best.
-An old man with a gun strapped to his hip was wearing a shirt that read, “Ditch The Paper, Go For Vapor.” It is reassuring to know that, in this life, some things may come and go, but the vape life is forever.
As an AWESOME transgirl with good taste do you have any fashion/look/whatever tips for a transgirl who wants to dress more tomboyish without just looking like a normal dude? (aside from just "dress in what you want because you're a girl no matter what you wear" cuz I embrace that I just wanna look even hotter)
First of all thank you so much for saying I have good taste!
Ok, if you want to go for a butch / tomboy look & you don’t want to get misgendered, here’s some of my inexpert subjective opinions:
(After writing this post I considered that I want to make a disclaimer that I’m white, I have straight hair, & I really wouldn’t know how to give styling advice for curly hair, all of the advice that I’m giving in this post is hugely informed by cultural whiteness. Even though I’m not a professional or even an expert by any means I thought that I should state this acknowledgement because it’s a really long post at this point and because I have like 2000 something followers I have this position of social capital.)
If you want something for longer hair, I think that some good options are wearing a loose bun or a high ponytail, with the option of adding a headband. There’s a ton of different styles of headband out there so there’s a lot of room to accessorize in a way that fits the look you’re going for. One look that I have seen a lot among lesbians is wearing a bandanna as a headband. You can tie it in the back or the front, either way works.
One basic principle regarding wearing long hair as a trans girl is that, if you look at yourself and you feel like you just look like a guy with long hair, try accessorizing somehow. Barrettes, buns, headbands, hair clips, bobby pins… There are a ton of these different accessories that are seen as feminine, that guys with long hair practically never use.
Also, bangs, either side-swept, straight, or whatever, are all pretty popular among trans women because they have the benefit of covering your forehead and framing your face in a way that’s traditionally feminine. Though that is a matter of personal preference.
When it comes to shorter hair styles, yeah there’s the instinct a lof of trans women have that says “don’t risk having short hair!” but this isn’t necessarily true. I think the most important thing to understand in terms of the general area of short hairstyles is that there’s a pretty concrete conceptual division between short hairstyles for men and short hairstyles for women. Now, I’m not saying this as someone who wants to enforce that concept, that’s just how the hairdressers and the schools of hairdressing see it.
If you’re looking for a short hairstyle, the benefits of a ‘feminine’ short haircut are that they are, in fact, generally seen as feminine. Short hairstyles for women are generally layered, giving a softer look, with more stylistic possibilities for length in the bangs and the sides & top than men’s hairstyles have.
So yeah, if you have short hair already in a more traditionally male style, getting a pixie cut would have a more feminine appearance.
You also have the option of getting an undercut, which i would definitely classify as a feminine lesbian-coded hairstyle. And I also would argue that when hairdressers do undercuts on men vs women, men’s undercuts are always shorter, more contained, and have a “neater” appearance whereas women’s have the tendency to be longer, more layered.
Hats are definitely an option for a tomboy/butch look, and I have stumbled on a blog post from 2010 on this very topic and they list several viable butch hat styles that you can feel free to look into. Obviously I’m not agreeing with every single style opinion from that blog but it’s a good list of hats.
Another hat option for colder weather is a beanie, which due to the variety of styles, can be presented as more “masculine” or more “feminine” or “tomboy-esque.” One benefit to beanies is that you can still have your hair somewhat visible via the front while still staying warm.
Again I advise that pretty much anything you buy from the “women’s” section will be cut & fitted in a way that is intended to look feminine and accentuate the chest & hips. Personally I have had a lot of annoyance from trying on tops that fit my torso in every dimension EXCEPT for shoulder width or arm thickness. So, be wary of online shopping, which i would advise to try to use for stuff that’s one-size-fits-all or is elastic. Personally I do a lot of my clothes shopping at thrift stores, Target, and Forever 21. I have no idea what your financial situation or geographic location is so that might not be helpful for you.
Anyway, when it comes to tomboy stuff, some tops that I would recommend are tank tops, short-sleeved blouses, and flannel. Tank tops are good because they’re form-fitting, but they also are somewhat androgynous with an air of athletics or manual labor around them. A good combo is wearing a tank top with an unbuttoned flannel top over it with the sleeves rolled up. That way you get the form-fitting tank top plus the lesbian vibes of flannel.
When I say “blouses” that kind of covers a really wide variety of garments. But there’s a lot of women’s tops that are collared, button-up, & also form-fitted, sort of a feminized dress shirt. I think those are a type of blouse but I’m not really sure.
When it comes to flannel, cotton, or other button-up shirts, you may want to pick ones from the “women’s” section because they will be tailored to accentuate bust & hips in comparison to “men’s” shirts which have more of a “boxy” look.
Jean jackets, jean vests, and leather jackets are all pretty popular among lesbians as far as I know.
Jeans are good because they’re incredibly versatile and can fit in with a lot of different looks.
I would honestly say that overalls are making a bit of a comeback and I think they’re a viable option for tomboy trans girls. I personally want to get a pair of overalls but I don’t have a lot of money generally so I haven’t gotten around to it.
Corduroy pants are also a pretty good option, right now i feel like they’re popular among lesbians and work well as part of a tomboy look.
As far as skirts go, I feel like maxi skirts can work pretty well as a tomboyish thing to wear, particularly linen & cotton & other more hardy, less decorative fabrics.
I wear a good pair of workboots like, all the time. Mine are Red Wing, though I see a lot of lesbians wearing Timberlands or Doc Martens. Converse are popular among a wide variety of demographics so I feel like they’re a pretty viable option. Clogs, like the kind made by Birkenstock, are pretty tomboyish as well.
Ok, that’s all I can think of for now.
Please feel free to reblog with any other fashion advice for butch/tomboy trans girls!
Re: Oblivion Ring - step-by-step explanation. O-Ring has 2 abilities. On ETB, exile a permanent. On LTB, bring it back. On ETB, the first ability triggers and goes on the stack. If at that point you destroy or otherwise remove O-Ring, the second ability triggers and goes on the top of the stack. It resolves first and there's nothing to bring back. The first ability then resolves, exiling the target forever. Naturally, people abuse this with blinking and bouncing.
If you want to slowly transition your wardrobe to get Archie’s style, try these tips!
* Find yourself a cardigan that can be paired easily with any top. Archie can be seen wearing his signature navy cardigan throughout multiple episodes and it pairs well with each top he wears. These cardigans can range from the material cotton to wool.
* Some of your tops are likely to fit in with Archie’s style as long as they are aren’t graphic tees (keep them simple). Archie seems to steer away from dark colors when it comes to this article of clothing and can be seen in colors like grey, green, white, red/blue. He hasn’t appeared in black and I don’t think he will unless it’s a suit/tux. On the occasion, a navy shirt is acceptable as long as you don’t pair it with another dark item (e.g. don’t wear a navy shirt with a black cardigan/jacket or black/dark blue jeans)
* If you’re buying more shoes - less is more. Converse shoes are popular among Archie (more specifically grey ones). Color wise, I would select neutral tones; browns and greys.
* When it comes to book-bags or an everyday carry along bag, go for a vintage style. Archie is seen carrying around a grey/brown vintage bag .
* Every time you pick something off the rack/shelf, ask yourself: Is it something you can see Archie wear?
Where can you find brands/stores selling Archie-inspired clothing?

Overall a good haul but at one point I beeped on the way out of ulta bc my friend was still carrying her (empty) ulta shopping bag which apparently sets the towers off but for like the first two seconds I was about to fucking run
