grimm times

So YOU are telling ME that TYRANNUS BASILTON GRIMM-PITCH would NEVER use his wand to make a HAIR BUN and every time he needs his wand he’ll DRAMATICALLY let his hair down FLAWLESSLY brushing down his neck and shoulders??? THE FUCK?

Does it ever make you sad that Simon and Baz never get a happy, care-free period just to explore their relationship and get comfortable with each other?

Like, they go from being enemies to boyfriends in the span of, what, a couple weeks? During which time they’re trying to find Natasha’s killer, and eventually fighting the Humdrum.

But after all that is over? They’re only students and they went through something really traumatic, and they’ll be dealing with that for years. That’s hard enough in an already established, healthy relationship.

I know they’re just characters and we have no idea what happens after the Canon ends, but I really hope they were able to navigate through that and get to the point where they were both happy with each other and themselves.

Gavin is the cherubic face of a reductive, dirty debate about trans people’s right to exist in public spaces without hostility, harassment and violence. His case, which remains ongoing in Virginia, has implications that extend far beyond bathrooms. It’s about a greater sense of belonging for us all—at school, at home and in our neighborhoods and places of work and worship. So many are made to feel as if they should hide, pretend or perish. Gavin’s refusal to be treated unjustly is an enduring reminder that we will not be stalled.

A concept: Simon being fascinated by his boyfriend’s fangs, always, every time

(Aaaaaand there’s a sketch-y something something that goes with it)

Simon Snow, I choose you.

Snow doesn’t flinch or soften. For a moment, I think he is going to take a swing at me- or bash his rock-hard head against mine. Instead he shoves his face into mine and kisses me. It’s still a challenge. -Carry On

Hahaha you all thought I was done with my Leaver’s Ball art. Don’t underestimate the fact that I am total Carry On trash.
