Oh I get it. But when I think of female and male I think of sex. Like born with female body, etc.
to me there is no such thing as ‘female body’ because sex is a spectrum and saying that a trans man is born in a ‘female body’ in my opinion just solidifies gender/sex binary by assigning a gender (female) to a sex, and this further implies that trans men are actually “female”. I have a male body, i do not have a female body and I never have. i was assigned female at birth but because I am male, my body has always been male and that is how I perceive both my gender and sex. because I see myself this way and i see sex as unnecessarily separated from gender and that sex binarism is fake, I feel no need to use labels such as ‘ftm’ and I actually more disidentify with them
I love all of your writing, especially these little prompts. I hope you don't mind another one? It'd be cool to see Magnus introduce Alec to the amazing David Bowie
Oh god I love Magnus getting to introduce Alec to Icons like this. Thank you so much!
Ah, shit. Alec knows this face. The slightly-raised eyebrows. The little head tilt. The expectation. It’s happened before. It’s happened many times. Too many. And it’s clearly happening again. Magnus said something, something that seemed completely random, but innocuous enough. Not anything Alec should need to respond to. But then he made this face. This face. The one that means he’s waiting for Alec’s response. He’s waiting for Alec to show some sign of understanding. He’s waiting for Alec to get it. And he doesn’t. Magnus shouldn’t be surprised; it feels like Alec never fucking gets it. No matter what it is.
“Is that a… reference to something?” Alec asks. Honestly, at this point he’s not even embarrassed anymore. Magnus clearly doesn’t ever mean it. He’s not disappointed that Alec so frequently doesn’t know what he’s talking about. And it’s not like he makes any of these references as a pretentious way of testing if Alec knows them. He just… knows a lot more than Alec. Alec’s pretty sure Magnus just forgets that sometimes.
Magnus’s eyebrows get a little higher. “Stardust. As in… Ziggy Stardust.” He waits a moment. And his head tilts a little further. “Bowie?”
Alec shrugs. They’re just words. He’s not even sure which ones are supposed to mean something to him.
There’s a moment of odd stillness… and then Magnus grins. He reaches into his back pocket and pulls out his phone with one hand, and starts to usher Alec over to the couch with the other. “Ooh, this is going to be fun.”
-send me a character or pairing, and a prompt, and I’ll write a three-paragraph fic for you!-
I had a surreal experience at the ice cream shop today.
I was waiting to get my ice cream and a cop comes in and asks for an ice cream and a granita, which isnt weird bc hey, it’s Italy, it’s hot and terribly sunny, if I had to direct traffic all day i’d want to buy an I’ve cream as soon as I can too. But then he takes out a punching card. I go to that shop quite often and I NEVER knew you could get punching card there, and I’m sure that neither do any of my friends. And then the cashier goes “your total is 4.20€” and I had to try my best to not laugh bc there was my mom right next to me and well, a cop in the same local. And then the cop is like “oh good, I can get a free ice cream next time” in a super serious cop voice. I shall never forget this day.
“Did you hear that Very Good Corporation and Excellent Corporation merged yesterday, Alexandria?” asked Patricia, one of the 12,500 receptionists at Very Good Corporation. “This is some amazing news!”
Alex, a fellow employee of Very Good, looked left across the mag-train aisle at a smiling Patricia, who eagerly nodded her head in enthusiasm. The windows on their flanks flashed bright hues and 5-D swirls, their advertisements choking out any blank space in their peripheral vision. Alex sighed and took a puff of her Medicine.
“Yes, yes. I was one of the first few million to hear it. Got the Speedy Alert after I had just woken up. So did you hear about it?” again questioned Patricia, desperate for an answer.
It didn’t interest Alex one bit, but she played along anyway, not wishing to upset her coworker and get into an even longer conversation. “Yes, I got a Quick Alert about it yesterday too.”
“Oh!” cried out Patty, “You must upgrade to the Speedy Alert! Here I will refer you right now. Ten percent off!”
Patty looked in Alex’s direction and scrunched her forehead, thinking the command into her communicator. Alex winced her eye upon receiving it and immediately filed it off into her personal trash bin, disregarding the fee necessary to do so.
“Thanks, Patty, I will be sure to upgrade.”
“Oh, no, thank you! I get a free muffin at the Food Shoppe for everyone I refer. A chocolate muffin, Very Big size!”
Patty’s excitement was overwhelming. Her head shook and shook in excitement and she kept smiling at Alex. She also, quite nonchalantly, had pulled out a napkin from her knapsack and worked to wipe her chin for, to Alex’s disgust, she had begun uncontrollably salivating at the mere thought of her reward. Alex took another puff of her Medicine and cast her eyes to the window, letting the 5-D take hold of her senses for the remainder of her morning commute.
Times when “We can’t all be neurotypical, Karen” should apply:
Romanticizing mental illness
Downplaying the symptoms of mental illness e.g. “Just don’t be stressed!” “Just ignore [insert severe sensory stimulus here],” “Depression? Oh yeah I get sad too,”
Statements like “Only boring people are easily bored” (MASSIVE insult to ppl with ADHD who need constant stimulation)
Anything making mental illness “cute” and “quirky” (”Normal people scare me” t-shirts, “The voices in my head are my BFFs,” stuff like that) (I guess that ties into romanticizing mental illness though)
Times when Tumblr.cancer likes to apply “We can’t all be neurotypical, Karen,”:
Any time someone (often ND or mentally ill themselves) offers any pro-recovery advice on coping with mental illness or suggests something outside of moping about and letting your illness control every facet of your life.

-me, to my coworker: oh i get off in ten minutes
ten minutes later: “REY IS LEAVING EVERYONE TACKLE HER OR HIM” (they didn’t believe me when i told them i was a ‘girl’ so now use “her or him” when referring to me. i dont correct them because they are on the right track)
You know, I’ve been thinking – Misha always says that the writers began changing his character the more they saw his personality come through on set – so Castiel went from this stone cold badass, to this shy, bumbling do-gooder. But … that doesn’t really make sense because Misha isn’t shy about anything; and yeah … he can be a bit awkward but he’s usually being sarcastic and witty and having the time of his life just fucking with people.
So where’s the disconnect? What are the writers seeing that we’re not? What’s on set that would make Misha such a shy, humble and charming little doofus that the people in charge would reshape his entire character?
Request: Hiya! Could I please get a bts reaction to you having a really sensitive neck and get really turned on when they kiss or bite it???
Seokjin: You were just sitting on the couch watching a movie, chilling together. But he had the bad idea of kissing your neck. “Don’t do it!” You warned. “Why?” He asked confused. “Just don’t.” “There must be a reason, Jagi…” He smiled and gave you another kiss on the neck, giving you goose bumps. “Oh I get it.” He said and smirked at you before kissing your lips.
Yoongi: You were with him in the studio, waiting for him to finish some things. You were bored and sat on his lap. “Hey…” You said smiling. “Hello.” He said without looking at you. “Can we go home?” “Why? do you want to do something?” He smirked. “No!” You laughed. He approached at your neck and give a bite. “I didn’t want to, now i do. Let’s go home now.” “You know, you get turned on so easy.” “Shut up!”
Hoseok: “Let me go!” You screamed, laughing. “Never!” He said laughing even more. He stucked you to the wall and put your legs around his waist. He kissed you on the lips, then his mouth went to your neck, giving a bite, making you moan. “Hm, do you like this?” He asked with a smile. “You know I like it, baby, go on.” He laughed.
Namjoon: He knows how you feel when he kisses your neck and he loves to tease you. You were sitting on his lap and he was running his lips lightly all over your neck, making you moan. “If you won’t do anything, stop!” You whined. “What do you want me to do?” He smiled. “I want you to stop.” “Do you really want?” He stopped. “No, just stop the teasing and get right to the point.” He laughed and kissed your lips.
Jimin: "JAGI!“ Your boyfriend yelled when he got home. "I’m in the kitchen.” “Oh, hey.” He smiled when he saw you. “Hello!” You smiled back. He sat down beside you on the table and kissed your neck. You shivered but pretended nothing happened. “Are you okay?” “Yes I am.” He kissed your neck again and you heard him laugh at your reaction. “You’re such a sensitive baby.” “I’m not! My neck is.” “Okay, let’s see…” He started kissing your neck repeatedly, leaving you extremely turned on. “OKAY!” You turned to him and kissed his lips. “Are you turned on?” He asked. “Yes. Now you’re going to have to figure it out.” “With all pleasure…” He picked you up and carried you to the bedroom.
Taehyung: You were cuddling in bed. You were almost asleep when you feel his kisses on your neck. “Stop, Tae!” You laughed. “Nooo! You like that.” “Yes, I really like that.” You said unconsciously as his kisses began to get wetter with ulterior motives. “I know everything you like, Princess.” He gave you a smirk, just for getting you even more horny.
Jungkook: Your boyfriend LOVES tease you in everything, no matter what. And when he found out you get turned on when he kissed your neck, he always did it. “Hey baby.” He said going up to you in bed. “Shut up, I’m reading.” “Keep reading.” He said and lay down beside you. Some minutes later, he began to give kisses and bites on your neck. “Why are you like this?” You asked, putting the book down and looking at him. “Because I want your attention, love!” He smiled. “Okay, you have all my attention now.” “Great.” He give you a smile and kissed you.
“Off screen, however, Lilian and Rhea — played by genre vets Brenda Strong and Teri Hatcher, reunited after years together on Desperate Housewives — are as delightful as you could hope for. Hatcher is “a complete hoot, and she’s got the most zany, crazy sense of humor,” McGrath says, and Strong is “the most elegant, well-spoken comic.” Working on Supergirl is grueling — “16, 17-hour days, it’s tiring and you’re away from your family” — and McGrath loves that both women are not only brilliant actors, but also keep up the spirits of those around them. “Whenever [Hatcher] gets to set, she does a little dance for me and it always makes me happy,” she says with a laugh. “I am so grateful that they both turned out to be really good people. It’d be difficult if they weren’t.”
Part of her character’s allure, muses McGrath, is in the unpredictability of Lena’s story. “I had no f**king clue what was going to happen! I didn’t sign up for that many episodes, so I thought I was just coming in and I’d have a little small arc and that would be it,” she says. But as she made more and more appearances, the character continually bucked her expectations: “I kept waiting for the script to come in that would be, ‘Oh, I get it. There you go. She’s Lex now.’ And it never happened.”
