I just read that the Las Vegas shooting was the 273rd mass shooting in America THIS YEAR. As a Brit where guns are banned it is just shocking that there is not more uproar in the US over gun control. How can mentally ill people or anyone get access to weapons that have no other use but to cause mass casualties you will never need for self defence. How long will it take and how much more hurt does there have to be before actual regulations get put in place? It is just such a horrific thing to happen and so easily avoidable with sensible regulations.
Being nonbinary is nothing to be ashamed of. You don’t have to be bursting with pride, ready to shout it from the rooftops if that’s just not who you are, but nor should you have to hide it, keep it tucked away. It’s a part of you, big or small, and you shouldn’t have to worry about life being complicated because of it, or what other people may think.
You do you. Be nonbinary. Pin the flag to your wall, or just whisper it to yourself in the middle of the night. Lead rallying cries for nonbinary support groups, or just reblog nb posts on tumblr. Be nonbinary, whatever and however that means for you.
even though vax had literally just vanished, vex still pulled herself together long enough to talk percy through his panic and his grief. “we’ll be the glue.”
but it’s not like one of those one-sided misogynist things where the dude’s emotions always come first and his lady must support him or w/e
because that night, even though cassandra was lying in bed recovering from literal death, percy went out into the woods with vex and didn’t complain, didn’t even blink, and even made sure she knew it was okay to ask. “you’re always better than comfortable.”
that’s…exactly what I always loved about them most. literally step one of this ship, for me at least, is the part in episode 24 when vex promises they’ll go with percy to take whitestone back. percy’s cold and selfish sometimes and vex is prone to shoving down her problems for as long as she can (try nearly sixty episodes), but they are always, always, always ready to hold each other together. they are so utterly devoted, and I’m so glad they ended just as they started.
