i'm a really big child guys

So yesterday I was buying underwear

And this little kid, maybe about 7 or 8, wandered over and hung around shyly for a bit, glancing at me every now and then. I smiled once, then pretended not to notice them watching me.

Eventually the kid asked “Are you a boy or a girl? Cause you look kinda like a boy but you’re in the girl part of the store.”

I smiled and said “I’m nonbinary! That means I’m not a girl or a boy. Anyone can wear this kind of underwear if they want.” And they looked really confused and said “You’re not a girl or a boy?” and I shook my head and smiled and they got REALLY excited

And said “So you’re a UNICORN?!”

And I looked around quickly and then leaned in and gave them a conspiratorial look, and said “Let’s just say I’m magical and not everyone believes I exist.” And the kid’s eyes got SO WIDE and they grinned and said in a stage whisper, "I promise not to tell anyone you’re a unicorn” in this really solemn voice.

And then the kid started to run away, and stopped and looked back and said “Wait, ANYONE can wear those?”

And I said “yeah, if they want to, because whether you’re a boy or a girl or a unicorn or something else doesn’t mean you have to dress a certain way.” and they said “So it’s okay for me to like dresses?” and I was like “Yeah! You can like whatever you like!” and they smiled really big and ran off

And that interaction made my whole day better and I hope that child has a good and non-heteronormative life

It’s been a veeery long time since my last follow forever, and since I hit 3k (how) a couple of weeks ago, I decided to make a new one to celebrate the big milestone!
Thank you to all my followers for deciding to stick with me and my usual rants and emotional breakdowns over cs attempts at editing with photoshop, and to all the lovely people who constantly brighten my dash (and my life) with their awesomeness. You all are absolutely amazing ❤️ 
Under the cut’s a list of some of my favorite blogs that I think everyone should be following.

Happy anniversary, Neokosmos!! and congratulations on having exactly ten revealed characters to fit into a photoset on this very special day (minus the Director and Axavi because silhouette and only glimpsed holding a screaming baby on the cast page, respectively)

Here’s a little special boy! Along with some facts so you guys understand Slinky more!
• He loves himself dearly, especially his personality •
• He wears a little hand sewn Axolotl tail his mum made for him •
• Slinky’s name isn’t Slinky, that’s just a nickname •
• He can’t really talk well, this is because both his literacy and grammar isn’t good at all. •
• He’s a big ol’ Mama’s boy •
• He’s only a child! So he’s 10 years old •

Episode 408 is called Tad & Loreen & Avi & Shanaz. 

The title of this episode is a play on Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, which is one of my favorite classic films. We liked the idea that this was this little, like, 70s character piece about adults and the complications of marriage, tucked into this show about 20-somethings. 

The big reveal of Tad’s sexuality lives somewhere between a premeditated thing and something that has come to us as the characters progressed. It was something that we planted in that first scene with Hannah and Elijah in Season One.

He’s always thought her father seemed gay. Hannah’s feelings were, “Well, if he were gay, he’d be trying harder to cover it up.” Apparently that’s not the case. 

In the context of Loreen and Tad’s relationship, it makes sense. There’s such a power imbalance. He’s so deferential to her. So much of that was because there was something big that he felt really guilty about.

I think a big part of being in your 20s is realizing that your parents are people, and that they’re not just in the world to serve you. Realizing that your parents have their own issues and their own anxieties– it can be traumatic, because you still feel like a child. You don’t feel ready for it.

Hey guys I'm a really big fan of you blog. I am currently developing a plot with a mc that grew up in the foster system. If you could point me towards a few links and possibly a blog or follower that has first hand experience I would be really thankful. Thanks in advance and keep up the awesome prompts

Foster care strikes me as something that affects each person within it in very different ways.

Followers: is anyone able to offer help?
