consider; solangelo high school au where its basically written like one of those really pretty, angsty coming of age novels. nico is outed as gay by some kid at school over the speaker system and everyone gives him shit when he starts dating a “girl”, “melody” solace, aka his best friend, who only he and one other person know is a closeted trans guy
Sorry to trespass into the conversation here but someone has posted (and will continue to update) a block list here. I know people were targeted because of the first one, and this one is posted publicly on tumblr, so please be careful!
“Forget me now, Father,” I said. “Forget me, as if the monks had sent me away. But remember this, on account of you, I shall never be buried in the muddy graves of the Monastery. No, other things may befall me. But that, I won’t suffer. Because of you, that you wouldn’t have it, that you came that day and demanded I ride out with you, that I be your son.”
I turned to go. He shot forward, clasping the bottle by the neck in his left hand and clamping his powerful right hand over my wrist. He pulled me down to him, as if I were a mere mortal, with his old strength and he pressed his lips against my bowed head.
"Andrei, my angel child, my gifted and golden son!“
Tbh I actually really like Freckle as a transfem character like…shes a real person. I’m seeing these posts where its like “yuck, shes oversexed, abuses drugs and alcohol and is messy af, how awful!” And like…Im sorry but thats the real experience for a lot of us. She’s fun and charming and captures kinda the spirit of us who are living through that messy period in our lives as trans women. The only aspect of her I’m uncomfortable with is that aside about “you know how I like a little Asian” that the writers threw in one time. That was gross, racism and fetishization is gross, but just…existing as a trans woman, with a life and style that mirrors or humorously exaggerates the reality for most of us, that’s not some heinous fucking crime and its making me really uncomfortable to see people who think a character with those traits is somehow disgusting and wrong because of them.
