(it’s long so prepare or scroll really fast if you wanna pass it)
me, 1993, wtf is a gender i wear diapers for god sakes
late 90s, rockin some shades and some crazy sweaters even though i live in FL (still do that to this day)
time jump to… early 2000s, flexin and loving dogs (still doing that to this day wassup somethings never change)
oh wow here comes Middle School™ and the emo phase begins (sadly no pics during the emo phase)
oh shit what up 2008 scene phase yes that is a STAY BRUTAL™ sweater)
then ya boy calmed down a bit and stopped giving a fuck about impressing ppl (idk why I thought being scene was impressive dont ask)
ya boy graduated HS and was free to do whatever to his hair so colors were everywhere but also was the time when his self worth was at his lowest and was dressing and looking how he thought people would want so he could get them to like him (ew right?)
ya boy got his very first mohawk and rocked that shit for a few years
dis is some pics of the year he starts questioning his gender identity and after 6 months of research and “soul searching” decides to start HRT
yo boy is SIX MONTHS ON T !!! and starting to grow facial hair B)
YO BOY IS ONE (1) YR ON T AND JUST HAD TOP SURGERY! but also shaved his head a few months back and feels hella ugly lol
fwd and we are now 1.5 years on T ! Hair is finally coming in and he’s look decent these days.
WHOOOA LONG HAIR WHO DIS!!! YA BOYS TWO (2) YEARS ON T !!! and 1 YR POST OP! Feeling amazing tbh
ooo shit we winding down now yall
ya boy is Two (2) years and 3 months on T and thankful every day that his blood work came back with the all clear to start T, thankful for his support group and friends/family that love and support him (shout out to my sister), thankful for how well he’s transitioned even though it was long and hard on the mental state a lot of the time, he pushed through and came out the other end smiling and happy in his skin. Thankful every day that he can afford to start on HRT, thankful every day for all the support he gets online from kind words to donations that helped afford top surgery + donations I got when he was filing for the name change as well.
I’m posting this in hopes that it helps anyone who needs it. I’m a huge believer in doing things for yourself and making sure your happiness/comfort is always first before someone else’s. I hope it gives inspiration and motivation to those who are scared to transition in fear of what their families will think, in fear of how they will transition, fear of all the nerve wracking things that comes with HRT. Hoping that it shows you, that while HRT isn’t an over night fix, that takes time and a lot of hard days but in the end, you come out on top. It’s still a struggle some days but nothing compared to the days when I was pre-T.
Feel free to message me if you have any questions about HRT with T and I’m happy to answer to the best of my ability!

So I’ve always been obsessed with @modmad ‘s art style and her comics, and to sorta congratulate her on her awesome kickstarter for TPOH, I wanted to draw her a little MagicStone! (Also I just wanted an excuse to draw Gladstone’s hair but woah woops it turned into this, great)
The inspiration behind my Instagram fashion shows is…That I just love playing dress up with clothes, and decided one day to have some fun putting on a fashion show with some of the dresses that I had just bought. I love doing these videos so much that now I can’t stop! I do practice my walk!
Aka, Haggar is gonna be the final boss and y’all gonna regret sleeping on her
Just look at the difference in how she’s presented between s1 and s4
Seasons 1 and 2 are hands down Zarkon’s bigges seasons (thus far)
He’s presented in an eye-catching red against the purple and silver of the rest of the empire.
Haggar? Notice how she’s framed behind him, and made small by comparison. She’s notable enough to have a distinct design, but she’s pretty much only ever seen in proximity to Zarkon in some way.
With Zarkon at the forefront of course
Looking at season 4 though, we get a rather dramatic shift in how they’re BOTH presented
Our very first scene on the Galra side opens up with this
Not once has Haggar had such a long scene to herself (the closest we’ve gotten is when she first registers the awakened castleship, but even then it quickly cuts to Zarkon)
Heck, this really brings attention to the fact that while we’ve never had Zarkon without Haggar, we’re starting to drift into the territory of seeing Haggar without Zarkon.
Cause idk about you, but we’ve never had an isolated scene like this with the guy, he’s always been talking to Haggar or beating the crap out of Voltron.
Similar shot to our first screencap, and notice how different everything is framed.
Now, Haggar is in the forefront, and the way Zarkon is framed makes him look small in comparison to her (which I admit never thought was possible, yet here we are)
Even his colors have changed, washing out from his wine red to something only a few shades away from Haggar’s telltale purple, giving credence to the thought Haggar’s theme/character/arc/whatever is becoming much more prominent.
Just look at that, nearly a 180 from before, she’s still in the forefront, and even the color scheme has cooled more to her tones
describing eye colors isn’t actually v helpful as a description??? talk about the makeup smeared on the left side, the lines under their eyes, the sloppily cut hair obscuring their eyes from view, how bloodshot or sunken they seem in the face, how wide they go at the slightest sound, how glassy and unblinking they seem, how they’re always darting away
all of that tells me a bit more about the character than whatever shade of gemstone they most resemble, seriously
