its beautiful huh

This Friday (31st March) is Trans Day of Visibility

[This post refers to TDoV 2017; other years will have TDoV on a different day of the week]

It’s that time of year again! That awesome day where trans people share their selfies and stories. It’s one of the two largest trans advocacy days, the other being Trans Day of Remembrance (20th November). That day is dedicated to mourning and solemnity, while this day is a day to celebrate being alive! Like last year, I’m not sure of the absolute official hashtag, so I’m guessing there’ll be a variety in use, such as: #tdov #transdayofvisibility #trans day of visibility #trans visibility #trans pride #transresistance #trans resistance

This day has been recognised since 2009 and is increasing in popularity and support each year, but there’s still a long way to go in spreading the word. Visibility is something that the trans community often has to struggle for, so this is our time to step out of the shadows, take pride in who we are, and show the world that we exist and we’re here to stay.

If you are trans

This is your day. No matter your gender - whether you’re male, female, or any nonbinary gender - anyone who isn’t cis (ie. whose gender is different from the gender they were assigned at birth) can participate. This is a great opportunity to get involved in the community and be visible. If you’re comfortable, post a selfie. Share your story. This is your time to be proud of who you are! It can get hard and lonely sometimes, but there’s a whole community here who have your back.

If you are not trans

Please also get involved - don’t leave this day just up to us. Today is a day for you to support and listen to the trans community. Show us some love by reblogging some selfies and reading some stories, whether you browse through the tags listed above or stick to your mutuals. Now is a perfect opportunity to learn about our wonderful community and to look at some beautiful people. It’s a win-win, really.

Above all, I hope everyone has a fantastic TDoV! Have fun and keep it positive.

A sleepy polar bear on a Spring day… [x]

Blame it on the alcohol part 2 ' ( Austin Carlile imagine)

~~Saturday morning 8:30am~~

*lightsaber noises*
I groaned and reached for my phone and answered
“What the fuck Tony?.. it’s too early AND its Saturday”
“I’m sorry (y/n), I just wanted to invite you to our party tonight.. geez grumpy gills!”
” it’s 8 in the morning and you’re calling me, I didnt ask for a wake up call.. Tone what are you doing up so early? “
“Getting the stuff for tonight dummy , so are you coming or??”
“Yeah, of course.. I have nothing else to do tonight”
“Alright, I’ll see you there at 9, i gotta go sleepy head”he chuckled
“Bye Tony”

I hung up and threw my phone under my pillow, and laid down again to sleep. ‘Fucking tony’ its Saturday. I’ve know tony for about three years now. And we’ve gotten pretty close.. and not in that type of way. Tone is just like..an older brother to me.

By the time I woke up it was 2pm.. I had 5 missed calls and 15 messages from tony. My god..
I called him back
“Hello?”
“What’s up?”
“Oh now you call back?!”He laughed
“I was asleep!”
“i’m taking you out to eat then we’re heading to my place I- “
“Whyyy??”
“I need you to come over and help me with some stuff for tonight. So bring your out fit for tonight and everything thing else, you can put it in your room while we fix up”
“at what time are you coming to pick me up? ” I laughed
“I’m 15 minutes from your house..”
“What the hell?! Antonio Perry!!”
“Hey I’ve been calling you!”
“Ugh.. fine I gotta go see you in a bit”
I hung up and ran to my closet and grabbed the the first tank top I found. I had slept in my jean shorts so I didnt have to worry about my bottoms, I slipped on my star wars Vans.
‘Uggh Tony I’m gonna kill you’
I looked in my closest and just grabbed a star wars tank top so that I could change once I got ready over there. I tossed my make-up, straightner, blow dryer and tank top in my bag and headed down stairs to the kitchen.
“(Y/N)!!! You better not be eating missy”
I laughed
“I’m hungry!!”
“Let’s go then” he grabbed my arm and dragged me outside
We got in his car and he started driving
“Where do you wanna eat?”
“Where ever” I leaned my seat back “just wake me up when we get there”
“Oh my god you lazy butt!!” He tickled my stomach
“No tony! you turtle!” I hit his hand.
he laughed and kept trying to tickle me as he drived
“Please.. stop…” i was laughing and out of breath
“Alright alright, so do you just wanna order pizza and chill at my place with the guys for a bit?”
“Ok” I smiled

By the time we got home, the pizza guy was already there, Tony paid him and we went inside.
“Heey!!!” Mike and Vic said in unison
“Hey guys” I hugged them
“Wheres Jaime? “
“Im right here! Aqui mero!” He said pointing to himself”
“Hola” I greeted
“Lets eat I’m starving!!”
“Me too!” Mike whined with me
“I’ll race ya to the table” I smirked at Mike
“Go!” He screamed and started running
“Thats not fair!” I ran after him
We all sat at the kitchen table eating
“Soo who’s picking up and doing dishes ?” Tony asked
“Un dos tres… not it” I screamed
Mike, Tony , and Jaime said “Not it” before Vic, of course its always Vic.
“Ayy.. every time you guys always beat me” he groaned
“Guys I’m gonna be up stairs getting ready, have fun vic” I winked as he washed the dishes
I made my way up stairs
“(Y/N)?”
“Yeah?” I turned to see the guys all standing at the bottom of the stairs
“There’s someone we want you to meet” Jaime spoke up
“He’s in a band” tony added
“Umm.. ok?”
“Great” Vic smiled and walked of Mike followed him
“Jaime!! Let’s play fifa!” Mike screamed as I walked up stairs to my room. Well the room I stay in when I sleep over
I let the water run so that the tub would fill up, I sat on the toilet seat wrapped in a towel.
Then the memories came rushing into my head.. the tall tattoo guy from the party a few weeks ago..
I was drunk, I didnt even know his name.. good thing I’m never gonna see him again.. or so I hope. .
I got in the bath tub and just relaxed for a bit, I couldn’t get the guy off of my head.. he probably just thought I was some dirty skank.. ugh.. why me??
“(Y/N)!?!!”
“Open the door!! I want you to meet someone”
Shit.. Tony was banging at the door
“Hold on!” I yelled back
I wrapped a towel around my head and one around my body and walked out to open the door
“(Y/N)-“
“What?!”
“Umm.. ” there was another guy standing next to him, he was much taller than him, he only had a sleeve tatt.. holy shit!!
I slammed the door in his face,
“Oh my god.. oh my god.. it’s him.. it’s him..” I sat on the bed
“Him who?” I heard a guys voice, I jumped up and turned to see the tall tattooed guy closing the door behind him
“You.. what…”
“You’re the girl from the party the other day”
“How??.. ”
” well after you left that morning me and Tony hung out. And he was showing me something on his phone and your picture came out I-“
“Tony has pictures of me?” I thought out loud
He laughed
“Umm.. well I just asked him who you were and that type of stuff and” he ran his fingers through his hair
“And??”
“And I realized I really wanted to meet you. I didnt tell Tony that I slept with you or anything.. he would’ve killed me” he chuckled to himself. “He wouldn’t even give me your number”
I stood there, trying to process what he’d just said.
“I’m Austin by the way” he stood up and smiled at me
“(Y/N)”
“Really? That’s such a pretty name”
“I think Austin is a better name” I blushed
“Nahh” he smiled
“Umm.. well yeah.. I have to change.. So..”
“Oh come on” he smirked
“What?”
“It’s not like I haven’t seen you before” he walked closer to me
“Uh.. you were pretty drunk though, so I doubt you remember” I laughed
“Alright ” he smiled “I’ll wait outside, if thats what you want”
I locked the door and started changing
So.. his name is Austin, and he’s been trying to look for me
I couldnt help but smile at the thought
I slipped on star wars tank top, blue jean shorts and my star wars vans and walked out Austin was sitting down against the door
“Whoooa.. ” he tried to keep himself from falling and then stood up
“Whoa..” he looked at me, eyeing my body
“Whoa what?”
“Your outfit.. I’ve never seen star wars look so.. so.. beautiful yet.. sexy”
I rolled my eyes and walked passed him and made my way down stairs, the party had already started, vic was already on his second round of tequila shots
” do you wanna go?” Austin scream over the music
“Where?” I smiled
“Anywhere, some where we can talk… and I mean talk.. not-” I raised my eyebrow
“Oh I thought..”
“Not unless you want to” he winked
“Let’s go then” I smiled
We made our way through all the people who were dancing and/or drinking. He grabbed his car keys out of his dark skinny jeans and started the car.
He turned to face me
“You got your hair dyed” he smiled
“Yeah” I looked at my hair as if I hadn’t see what color it was
“I like it”
“Thank you” we began to drive, it was pretty late, the street lights were on but over all it was dark, the moon was so bright tonight and I couldn’t help but notice its beauty
“It’s beautiful huh? The moon”
“Oh yeah, I couldn’t help but notice it” I said staring out the window
“So what’s new (Y/N)?”
“Aside from getting my hair dyed?? Nothing really, just working” I chuckled to myself
“And you?”
“recorded some new tracks ” he smiled”
“So you’re like famous? “
“Yeah I guess so, I’m in a band called Of Mice & Men”
“Ooh” I smiled
“I love it, making music” he turned to look at me “what do you for a living? “
“I’m a tattoo artists”
“Really? Are you any good?” He laughed
“Well I guess I have to be good in order to get hired and be manger of a tattoo parlor” I laughed as well
“Give me a tatt? I’ll pay you” his eyes gleamed at his idea
“I don’t even know you that well”
“But I trust you enough to give me a tattoo” he smiled sweetly
“Hmm.. ok”
“What’s the place called? “
“Evil ink LA”
“I know where that is” he turned the car around and we headed towards the tattoo parlor.
Lucky for Austin I had my keys with me. I let us in and turned the lights on
“Take any seat you want, I’ll go get the stuff ready”
“So what do you want amd where?”
“Anywhere, just be creative and have fun with it”
“Great! I’ll tattoo my name on you right butt cheek” I said sarcastically
I disinfected his shoulder and got the needle and ink ready
“(Y/N) hun .. that’s my right shoulder not my right butt cheek” he laughed
“You didnt really think I was gonna tattoo my name on you, right? He took off his shirt
“I wouldn’t mind” his smile widened
I finished his tattoo and had him look at it
“I like it.. actually, I think it’s the best tattoo I’ve had done”
” you’re just saying that-” I looked down blushing
“It’s like you know I have a thing for the ocean ” he looked at his new ‘mystical mermaid’
” I have a thing for the ocean too to be honest”
“How much do I owe you?”
“It’s fine, it’s a gift” I smiled
“No please (Y/N),” he took some cash from his wallet and placed it in my pockets, I didnt fight him I just let him
“Maybe we should get you back home, ” he grabbed his shirt and started walking ” we wouldn’t want your boyfriend to start worrying about you sweetie”
“I dont have one” I laughed as I started putting everything back in its place
He raised his eyebrow
“No boyfriend? ” he smirked
“Nope” I followed behind him and locked the parlor door
We hopped into his car and started heading back to Tony’s place, Austin walked me all the way to the doorstep
“I had fun tonight, thanks for the tattoo”
“Any time” I opened the door and started to walk in
“Hey (Y/N)?”
“Yeah?”
“What are you doing tomorrow? Maybe… maybe I can pick you up to.. to go get lunch or- or something” he smiled but looked down
“Id like that,” I smiled “here” I took his phone from his poket and entered my number
“Text me “I smiled
“I will.. good night (Y/N)” his eyes lit up
“Good night Austin”

Part 3 coming out soon cx

Hilarity in the original eraser stamp making session: 

Jun’s: “This Year’s Me” makes me happy with the purple and pink (which I’m blatantly interpreting as subtle RED okay?)

Sho’s: “I’m back” elicits screams of terror? laughter? intense reaction from the audience.  Really, Sho?

Masaki’s: his two-pronged approach creates “Please take good care of me Nittere-san” Nandarou-kun (Jun clarifies that “It IS a bird right?”) and “Riddled-with-Injuries Masaki” stamps. Aiba-chan~ gambare~

Kazu’s: His initial confidence in presenting his own creation… only leads to his own embarrassed laugh?

Satoshi’s: His “Stylishly Suspicious Person” serves to tickle everyone, and especially Jun who asks if it’s actually Johnny-san.  After trying to hide his creation, he fails to convince that it’s “just a suspicious character” when Kazu outs him for calling his own company president “a suspicious character”.
