i must have really heavy periods

Opportunities

Anon: College Klance, where Keith’s sick but he has a really important test in one of his classes so he goes to class anyway. Keith and Lance happen to have that class together, and normally Lance just tries to ignore the other boy, but the Keith waddles in wearing a big coat, scarf and a wool beanie. It’s like 80 degrees out, so he knows somethings off. Bonus: For Keith being light headed and having to be carried back to his dorm room. (PS Thank you for writing awesome fics)

A/N: So I heard you guys liked pining Lance. Cashing in the bonus, someone should draw Keith in winter gear with the scarf covering his face up to his bright-red nose.


Lance hadn’t noticed the boy before. He hadn’t noticed that mullet hair, or that red jacket, or that little glance they shared when the boy would walk in a minute before class started-

Okay, maybe he’d noticed. But that’s just because the guy sat in front of him in the lecture hall! How could he not look at the way his stupid hair turned up at the ends or the stupid way he twirled his stupid pencil with his stupid nice fingers-

Okay. Maybe he’d done more than notice. Maybe he’d put in some extra effort into trying to see the boy’s name on his test. Maybe he’d lost track of class while watching the boy lazily doodle on his notes. Maybe he’d seen ‘Keith Kogane’ on the list of packages at the front desk of his dorm hall and almost choked. Just maybe, though. Probably not. Definitely not.

Yo but can we maybe stop making women feel guilty, unsanitary, ashamed, and gross for menstruating?

Periods are a natural part of life. They are something we have to deal with once a month for the majority of our lives and the fact that it’s still considered a taboo subject really really bothers me.

Like I just went to the store to get more pads (also chocolate ice cream) and the male cashier looked at me and was like “ah. Must be that time of the month.”
And I was like “Yes, I am on my unusually heavy and extremely painful period which involves shedding the lining of my uterus and I’m about to spend $12 on pads to soak up the blood. Have a good day.”

So the point of this is to say that PERIODS ARE NORMAL. And I should be able to talk about my cycles around men (and women omg) without them making gagging noises or being grossed out.

My uterus is shedding its lining.
There’s a lot of blood.
I’m not ashamed.

Get it together, y'all.

There are a lot of clever things in this story - including a sort of callout to Little Nemo. But this page is probably the most interesting, especially that second panel. The character (and background) are very much drawn in a Moebius style and the guy in the bed actually says “I must have slipped into one of Moebius’s dreams!” Which is a great reference and works really well for the overall story.

One thing that drives me nuts about the translations from this period is how small the printing is. Even in person, the reader has to squint to really make out the words. That’s sub-optimal.
