nonbinary ppl don't exist, this was created by tumblr ppl lol. you are either a man or a woman, cis or trans..
I can feel snot running down my upper lip as my vision blurs. I must look positively crazed right now.
My Victorian servants are rolling their eyes at me, as if they’d expected such a reaction and yet are exhausted by it.
“You never existed! This–” my maid waves wildly around her, at the crimson manor that housed me all these years and the dead and twisted tree under which I buried grand-papa on my sixth birthday “–isn’t real!”
“Illusions, child,” my butler says, a crooked grin growing on his face, like a crack in his parched skin. “Illusions weaved by the people of Tumblr.”
I lose my balance and fall.
As I lay there, disoriented, I notice autumn leaves rustling on the ground through my slowly fading feet.
“Tumblr?” I ask.
My servants (or where they even ever mine?) break into laughter.
“Yes, Tumblr, my child,” my butler says, his voice croaking, “a fairy realm on the left of Avalon.”
“Well,” my maid interrupts, “on the right if you’re coming from Glastonbury.”
“Either way!” My butler shouts, before exchanging a sour look with his wife. “You were never real! Your whole existence, a mere trick from Tumblr!”
I am not listening anymore. I try to wipe my face clean but my hands are gone. I look down at where my legs used to be and see empty pyjamas.
As I fade into oblivion, to the sound of my old servants bickering about traffic, my mind conjures one final thought:
fuck u i’ll keep callin myself nonbinary lol
