so for trans visibility day let me take you through a fun little timeline
here ya got wee little kirby
skip forward i’m around 10 here, i was at my favorite place in the world, kiawah island south carolina
just look at that sass
i was pretty confident in myself i mean look at those hair extensions
skip forward to thanksgiving 2013, i was thirteen years old and wearing a dress. i had always wanted to look nice for things like this, important holidays and such. and i felt wearing a dress was the right thing to do so that’s what i did.
now we are getting to the darker part
so during 8th grade i was dealing with so much, on top of that i was so confused about who i was. i was continually dealing with the stress of my depression, anxiety, and other mental issues plus all of this unsure of what the hell was going on in my mind
this is me near the end of march.
april 15th i tried to commit suicide and i ended up in hospital with a .42 BAC, i should’ve died.
i met this person, named dj. they told me how they were genderfluid and they showed me a whole new spectrum of genders. the fact i fell in love with them is so besides the point, because what they did for me is opened me up more and helped me show me who i was.
this was me about a week after i got out of the hospital, i stayed there for about 2 ½ weeks.
so this is me at the beginning of ninth grade, i was still tryng to fit into what i thought i was supposed to be and wear even though i knew deep down something was off.
this was homecoming, i remmeber how uncomfrotable i was in that dress, yet i just felt like i HAD to wear one, i HAD to be a girl
around winter of 2014 i began to identify as genderfluid, i told my first person, my friend maura and she was very accepting
i began to dress more masculine when i was home alone and tried to hide my hair because it was causing me dysphoria
yet somedays, like spirit week where i dressed up as carmilla, i still tried to put on a girly front.
theN BOOM! I GOT MY FIRST HAIR CUT!
i hadn’t gotten my hair cut like ever, and it was so amazing. march 29th, 2015 was the first day i took a step towards accepting who i was
then we got my hair dyed ! major step forward. i was slowly feeling more comfortable with who i was.
yet there was still apart of me who didn’t feel like what i was was right. so i still tried to do that girly front, wore a dress for homecoming 2015
i began getting really deprssed again and my only savior was band, this was me the last day of band at state finals. my eyes were stained from crying becuase i didn’t know what i would do. luckily i still had theatre
but then i got my first dress shirt
i finally felt like i had something that i could wear and feel comfortable in
then a mircale happened
i got a binder january 2nd 2016
i felt like i could finally breathe, ironic right
yet 2016 brought so many more struggles, a few suicide attempts, some relapses, etc. but this is also the year i’ve been most comfortable with my body
slowly but surely i am becomine more accepting and comfortable with myself. wheter i’m ftm or just non-binary, who the hell knows? ( i know i sure don’t)
right now i’m just working on loving myself for the gender confused messed i am
so in conclusion. i’m kirby. i’m non-binary. and my pronouns are they/them and maybe he/him who the fuck knows
She shared grass-of-Parnassus with Elizabeth Bishop because it grew near the bluebell’s sog, and in Nova Scotia too. It was a part of the inherent poetry of names: lady’s slipper, sundew, jack-in-the-pulpit, forget-me-not, goldthread, buttercup, buttonbush, goldenrod, moonshine, honeysuckle, star grass, jewelweed, milkwort, butter-and-eggs, lion’s heart, Solomon’s seal, Venus’s looking-glass, with some names based on likeness, plant character, or human attitude, such as virgin’s bower, crowfoot, Queen Anne’s lace, Quaker lady, wake-robin, love vine, bellwort, moneywort, richweed, moccasin flower, snakemouth, ladies’ tresses, blue curls, lizard’s tail, goosefoot, ragged robin, hairy beardtongue, turtlehead, Dutchman’s-breeches, calico, thimbleweed, and finally bishop’s cap; or because they were critter-connected much as mad-dog was, hog peanut, gopherberry, goose tansy, butterfly weed, bee balm, moth mullen, cowwheat, deer vine, fleabane, horseheal, goat’s-rue, dogberry; or were based on location and function and friendliness like clammy ground cherry, water willow, stone clover, swamp candle, shinleaf, seedbox, eyebright, bedstraw, firewood, stonecrop, Indian physic, heal all, pitcher plant, purple boneset, agueweed, pleurisy root, toothwort, feverfew; or were simply borrowed from their fruiting season like the mayapple, or taken from root or stem or stalk or fruit or bloom or leaf, like arrowhead, spiderwort, seven-angled pipewort, foamflower, liverleaf, shrubby fivefinger, bloodroot; while sometimes they gained their name principally through their growth habit, as the staggerbush did, the sidesaddle flower, prostrate tick trefoil, loosestrife, spatterdock, steeplebush, Jacob’s ladder; although often the names served as warnings about a plant’s hostility or shyness the way poison ivy or touch-me-not did, wild sensitive pea, lambkill, adder’s tongue, poison flagroot, tearthumb, king devil, needlegrass, skunk cabbage, chokeberry, scorpion grass, viper’s bugloss, bitter nightshade, and lance-leaved tickseed; or they were meant to be sarcastic and cutting like New Jersey tea, bastard toadflax, false vervain, mouse-eared chickweed, swamp lousewort, monkey flower, corpse plant, pickerelweed, Indiana poke, and the parasitic naked broom rape, or, finally, gall-of-the-earth–

This is going to be really long but there’s not enough oikurohina so ye
-Kuroo and Oiks would be gentle with smol Hina and give him so much attention and he’d love it so much
-Oiks and Kuroo work all day and Hina stays home, so when they get home Hinata has dinner and everything ready for them
-Hina also memorized their schedules and calls them while they’re on their lunch break to say something cute and/or cheesy
-But he’s usually bored so they get a cat (we don’t know what its name is yet)
-The cat is rlly fat but also fluffy and extremely cuddly. Unfortunately it gets hair everywhere due to shedding a lot but at least if gives Hinata something to do
-Hinata makes lunch and coffee for Kuroo and Oiks before they leave for work
-aka best. housewife. ever.
-Whichever one has a birthday the other two plan a rlly nice date for them all to go on and celebrate together
-It all ends with them acting like memes though
-Someone made a rude comment to Hinata in the street and Kuroo and Oiks protecting him (protective senpai and husbands) and calling the guy out and stuff
-Kuroo likes watching alien movies with Oiks
-Hinata finds them boring and hard to follow so he just falls asleep while laid across Oiks and Kuroo
-Whenever Kuroo sees a cat in a horror movie he becomes rlly concerned about that cat
-Like when someone dies he just goes “is the cat okay tho”
-Oiks gets scared at horror movies
-So does Hina
-Hinata and Oikawa kinda just cling onto each other or to Kuroo when it comes to a scary scene
-Sometimes if Hinata is one one side of Kuroo and Oikawa is on the other side Kuroo wraps an arm around each of them and they bury their faces into his chest so they don’t have to see the screen.
-Kuroo has a soft spot for sad movies and he will cry
-They all cry tbh
-They try to comfort each other too but it just makes everything worse
-Also they watch Noragami together and they cried during episode 9
-Oikawa still crying hours later
-They have a king sized bed so they can cuddle together on it
-It’s like a sandwich, with smol Hinata in the middle
-Most of the time, at least
-All of them hate Trump (sorry not sorry)
-They see no future for America no matter who becomes president
-Sometimes Oikawa and/or Kuroo stop to get meatbuns for Hinata on their way home from work
-Whenever Oikawa gets hit on by girls Hinata swooshes in out of nowhere like that one time when Kiyoko was being hit on by Terushima
-And Oiks is like “It’s okay babe I got this” and he politely rejects the girls and whisks Hinata away
-Everyone is on a first name basis except Hinata
-He still calls them “Kuroo-san” and “Oikawa-san”
-He tried calling them by their first names before (Tetsurou-kun and Tooru-kun) and both of them flipped out bc he was so damn cute when he said it
-But Hina thought he did something wrong so he goes back to last names
-Hinata gets really scared at night after watching Noragami bc he thinks he keeps hearing and/or seeing phantoms in the dark
-Kuroo and Oiks have to comfort the poor child because Hinata finds their voices calming
-Unfortunately Kuroo and Oiks picks up the whole hearing/seeing phantoms thing because thanks Hinata
-They don’t sleep for like a week
-they really need to lay off on the drugs tbh (loljk)
-They’re at an amusement park and Oiks gets separated from Hinata and Kuroo and he gets scared and upset
-Hinata and Kuroo notice he’s gone though after like two seconds and they go back to look for him
-After they find him Hinata promises to never leave him behind again even if it was an accident
-Kuroo nearly fights every parent that tells their child(ren) not to look at him or his boyfriends
-Kuroo can’t sleep without white noise in the background so they always have a fan running
-the fan breaks down though and none of them can sleep
-Luckily Hinata buys a new one the next day while the other two are at work
-Kuroo likes the new fan
-Kuroo gets upset whenever people hit on Oiks or Hinata
-Except there was this one time when a boy (probably around age 10?) walked up to Oikawa and told him he was pretty and that he hoped he would grow up to be pretty like him
-Kuroo thought that moment was cute (and the boy’s mom was like the best mom ever)
-Whenever Hinata and/or Kuroo get sick, Oiks flips out and immediately calls a doctor even though it’s just a cold
-When Oiks is sick he begs to call the doctor but Kuroo’s like “you just have a cold”
-If Hinata isn’t the one that’s sick he takes really good care of the one that is sick
-Still the best housewife ever
-When he is sick tho both Oikawa and Kuroo take off work to make sure he doesn’t push himself to get things done and that he RESTS.
-Hina is literally like “but heichouuuuuu” when he’s told that he can’t do a certain thing he’s used to doing
-Both of them say “don’t you heichou me” in sync
-and that was the day they realized that they spend too much time together
-none of them really give a shit
-Kuroo has seasonal allergies so they always think he’s sick whenever he coughs and sneezes/sniffles and he’s just like “allegra… plz.”
-Kageyama comes over frequently and whenever he does they always challenges him to Mario Kart because he’s really bad at it and they all know he sucks
-Kags always rage quits in the end
-Oiks Kuro and Hina make mac n cheese together because that’s the only thing Oiks can actually cook
-Oiks is more of a baker
-He tries to make space food once and he failed really bad
-Kuroo loves cooking though, so if he arrives home early from work, he helps Hinata make dinner
-Never let Oikawa in the kitchen unless it’s for baking
-Once the three of them (plus Makki and Mattsun) went to Walmart dressed as Mario characters and they acted like memes.
-They got kicked out.
The Hobbit, Tauriel, And her Problematic Banishment.
Tauriel’s banishment makes so little sense that I’m convinced it was the result of executive meddling. Why? A number of reasons.
First off, Tauriel took off before the order was given to seal the kingdom. She’d left the room; she wasn’t around to hear Thranduil give it. She can’t be disobeying it if she didn’t know about it. Now, one could argue she’d gone AWOL, which is a pretty serious offense in modern, human military terms, but the Elves are neither modern nor human. If that was in fact an offense, it should have been explained in a line or two. The guards seem to travel through the forest more or less freely, and in any event, she’s captain; it’s unlikely she has to get permission from someone every single time she goes out.
Second, this seems rather OOC for Thranduil. In a deleted scene, he lets Legolas go to get her back; banishing her after all that effort is just stupid, and while he’s an asshole, he’s not stupid. He wouldn’t let Legolas waste time going to find her if he just intended to boot her out permanently as soon as she came back. Yes, this is a deleted scene, but still, the fact that it was filmed to begin with would suggest the banishment subplot came later.
