Wirt: Greg got one of these…kiguri-kiguru-kigu things and wouldn’t let me out of the house without matching with him! so I got Jason Funderberker to put his on too so that I wasn’t alone. They’re actually really comfy and good for sleepovers…
Jason: He didn’t make me, I’ve been waiting for this since he ordered it C;
(It’s transparent! Also we’re going through the asks and 3 of you guys asked the same question haha so that one’s going to be sort of a mini comic thing! Look forward to it!)
You rock. I am glad for every single one of you in my life. I am so unspeakably proud of you for everything you’ve done to discover your most authentic self. Your gender identity and gender expression are totally valid whether the people around you understand or not. The pronouns that feel right to you are the only ones that matter. The name you choose for yourself is the only one anybody should care about. You don’t have to fit into anyone’s boxes and you shouldn’t try. You deserve all the love and respect in the world just the way you are.
Whether you get to present the way you want to or not, whether you feel comfortable coming out or not, your identity is real. Whatever look you’re going for today, I bet you’re killing it. To me you’re always at your most beautiful when you’re feeling like yourself – your happiness shines through and makes you radiant. Strut your stuff and show off your style! Your presence makes the world that much brighter.
Please keep listening to yourself, learning about yourself, and most of all loving yourself as much as you can. I LOVE YOU ALL and I will always respect and acknowledge your identity however you choose to express it.
1. Who starts to like a certain genre of music more because of their partner?
Both of them do, mostly Clyde, though. He’s more open to music than Kevin is, but sometimes Kevin catches himself humming one of Clyde’s favorite songs. Clyde likes to listen to really new and old upbeat pop songs and rap songs, he got a lot of his music taste from his dad, so he listens to really embarrassing songs from time to time like Shoop and Hey Ya and jams out to them unironically.
They have different taste, that’s for sure, but Clyde winds up loving anything Kevin loves because Kevin’s so particular about what he likes and the things he listens to. A lot of Kev’s songs are really poignant and emotional and Clyde’s always struck dumb when he listens to his giant playlists.
Kevin likes to listen to songs from his favorite shows, old movies, video games, pretty much a lot of sci-fi/horror flicks and genres that Clyde’s never even heard of. All of the sudden, Clyde starts listening to songs like Don’t Fear the Reaper and Voodoo Child and Craig’s starts becoming a little more tolerant of his aux-cord sessions.
2. How do they pick a place to eat?
Kevin’s always okay with eating anywhere, but Clyde’s really keen on dragging him to the best restaurants in town and treating him to weird things on the menus that he used to order as a kid. Kevin’s surprised that so many food places around town have owners that know and love Clyde personally, whether it’s through his dad or the amount of times he’s eaten there.
3. When do they introduce their partner to their parents?
They’ve known each other for years, Roger loves embarrassing Clyde whenever Kevin comes by and Kevin’s parents adore Clyde and always try to serve him giant helpings of whatever they’re having that evening whenever he visits.
4. Where do they like to cuddle?
Anywhere. Kevin’s more restrained in public, but Clyde loves being in his space all the time. Clyde might look like the big cuddly type - and he is, but he really mostly keeps himself busy running around town and tiring himself out and it’s only really when he’s bored or in a trance eating that he’s touchier than he already is. Clyde’s always touching people, no matter what he’s always the handsy elbow-on-your-head, accidental-footsies-because-he’s-too-big-for-his-own-good, noogies-everywhere, pantsing-contest-with-Craig-in-the-hallways slap-Token-in-the-ass-after-practice kind of guy. So in one way or another, Clyde’s always touching. Whether he’s tugging on Kevin’s wrists and pulling him into random stores and shaking himself off in the rain like a mutt and soaking Kevin in the process or giving him big sweaty bear hugs after a big game.
5. Who is the one who clings to the other while they are sleeping?
Mostly Clyde, he likes using Kevin as a pillow for his drool but it’s fine because Kevin’s a sleep-monologuing blanket hog.
6. Who likes to take selfies of them two together?
Clyde is no doubt an instagram hoe. His profile pics are always of him and Kev at the movies or shaky pictures Kevin takes at his games or pictures Bebe takes of him and Kevin. He’s always taking pictures of the dogs he takes care of in his neighborhood and Craig, Token and him posing. He has this one video of Kevin dancing ridiculously to “I’ve got the magic in me” in the middle of one of Token’s parties.
7. Who kills the spiders?
Neither of them. Clyde runs out of the room screaming and when he comes back his weapon is Kevin, so he hides behind him while Kevin tries to spray it, then misses, then tries to throw things at it, then loses it because he has terrible aim, and then they vacate the room for a couple of hours until they need something from it. After a while the spider makes itself at home in the corner of the room and they name it Rebecca with the good silk.
8. Who wakes the other up with kisses?
Kevin mostly because Clyde loves it, but Kevin’s a heavy sleeper and a terrible morning person, so usually it has to be the other way around.
9. Who’s the dog person and who is the cat person?
Clyde loves either, but he’s had dogs his whole life because his dad’s allergic to cats. Kevin likes fish, he has an aquarium full of guppies that Clyde tries to name every time he’s in his room.
10. Who was more nervous on their first date?
Clyde. He kept blurting out stupid shit and trying to act smoothe because he couldn’t stop overthinking everything and trying to go into his default ‘impress the pussy’ mode because hot damn Kevin’s got a choice ass. He even dressed up and it made Kevin smile weirdly and take his hand. It made Clyde deflate in relief because he realises that it’s always been easy and that doesn’t have to change. Out of the hundreds of times in their friendship that they’ve hung out alone and gone to restaurants and parks and ice skating rinks, they’ve always had a good time. Clyde doesn’t need to impress Kevin and that’s a huge new for him. So they spent the rest of the day at harbucks talking like they always have, and Kevin fed Clyde cheetos from the vending machine. It was greeeaat.
11. Who is the better dancer?
They both suck. Clyde sucks marginally less but only in comparison. Clyde thinks Kevin looks great dancing, though.
Shoop: Wormhole is a menace. I really don’t like the kid.
Vegan4Lyfe: I mean, I like him…
Shoop: Assholes get along well.
Vegan4Lyfe: Suck it, goody-two-shoes!
Sage: Watch your language!
"nooo, gyaru is't racist!!" have you seen early gyaru, period? or how about i refresh your memory of banba, yamanba, rasuta, b-gal, ganguro, or gee, i don't know, any variation of gal involving excessive tanning?? like girl pls we all know what's going on, it's like one big black stereotype fashion show...i heard someone say that and it made me sick. as a black gyaru, i love this fashion, but someone has to realize that a lot of it is insanely racist.
I was going to post this as a gossip post, but I felt that I am required to answer this.
Basically, the style just grew more and more shocking. The ganguros started to wear white on their eyes and lips regularly. Gonguros upped the tans, which was carried over to later styles. As manba and yamanba took over, they ended up adding more white to the look, looking scarier and more crazy. If they wanted to rebel against the standard of beauty in Japan, they had greatly succeeded.
B-gal is not based off of black culture, although brands like Baby Shoop make it seem like that’s what it is. It’s based off of R&B artists (especially those at the time the style originated (think: Beyonce, Alicia Keys, etc.) There is a difference between cultural appreciation and cultural appropriation.
Gyaru history aside, if you find the style offensive, you don’t have to do it.
It’s all a personal choice whether or not you follow the tanned styles or reject them altogether. Almost everywhere in the world there is a tanning culture, and there will always be people who take it to the extreme, gyaru or not.
I got a new Photoshop and I really like it. I haven’t shooped anything in a while and now my hand just aches. But I just had to work on this. I adore Marshal and he’s never allowed to leave my town. #acnl #animalcrossing #art
I did. I did know. Though I’m glad people caught my less-than-subtle nod, a hurrhruhrurhurhrurh. FULL troll face might have been a little much. I don’t think her poor little face could wrinkle that much.
