I’M GONNA TALK SOME MORE ABOUT TATER’S LESBIAN MOMS. I had the original idea back in October, and then I decided I was going to do it for my Swawesome Santa, which I thought was super secret like Yuletide, so I clammed up about it since then. So I actually put a fair amount of work into researching the idea, but the fic turned into this monstrously huge unwieldy outline with 14 separate plot-important scenes at its smallest, and like five different emotional arcs, and I couldn’t do it, so I wrote Leave Your Lovers Like Campfires instead.

So now I’ll just cut it down to one aspect, which is Tater’s moms Sasha and Galina. Even just cut down to one aspect, in bullet points, without weaving in the other plot threads, this post is three thousand words long. /o\

I read what I could find in my libraries on social and LGBT history in Russia, but resources in English are honestly pretty limited and I know I’m making shit up here. MY APOLOGIES TO ACTUAL RUSSIANS. But for what it’s worth, the books I found most useful were Lesbian Lives in Soviet and Post-Soviet Russia by Francesca Stella, Cracks in the Iron Closet: Travels in Gay and Lesbian Russia by David Tuller, and Putin Country: A Journey Into the Real Russia by Anne Garrels.

Content notes: Homophobia, being closeted, coming out, mental illness, and suicide.

Hey I read this fic where they were in high school and Phil was on the basketball team cuz he was tall and they were best friends but Dan had a crush on Phil. Anyway there was this girl that kept hitting on Phil even though he wasn't interested and then at the end they kissed at a party and it was cute

Varsity Jacket - Dan has always been Phil’s close best friend, and that was not going to change now that Phil is the star of the basketball team and one of the most popular and most wanted guys in school.

all of us know how tiny wally is compared to other kids. but is no one going to talk about how small chad is compared to other teens?

the orange line is chad’s height, including his dang hair floof. 

but what about the light brown-haired guy whose height he almost matches? he’s slouching. the crease on his shirt is proof of that.

want more proof of this tiny football of angst??

chad is standing much more closer to the camera than the rest of the group, making him appear bigger thanks to the perspective. but what if he wasn’t you ask?

and that’s including the the guy on the left’s slouch. 

not only that, the rest of the guys in the back still appear bigger than chad even with angle of this shot. they would be a lot bigger than him if they all stood together.

just

look at this tiny football player full of angst
