this just needed to exist

Hi, just wanted to tell you that you're a truly amazing person. The fact that so many people feel comfortable coming to you with many personal questions and you're answering them entirely openly - even if not necessarily comfortably- and creating this amazing safe space, man you're just wonderful. The world needs more people like you. Thanks for existing. I don't even have a relationship to ask about, but I know I'd be comfortable asking you, a complete stranger, if I did. So thank you so much.

Awe! Thanks so much! I really appreciate it. This is so sweet!!!! I’m so glad you said this. It really made my day!

Friendly reminder that religious gay people exist!! You do not have to choose one or the other! You’re not a bad gay for being religious and you’re not a bad follower for being gay! You can be both! They’re both important parts of your identity and there’s nothing wrong with being both!

i just like drawing jimin (photo cred)

Love returns and you have
just pulled yourself out of water.  
Love comes in from the sand and
turns honey into topaz and topaz
back into honey again. 
Its hands full, a shade of sun glow,
a basket of mornings.
But when love returns
your eyes are still tuning in 
a lighter shade of blue.
Hair sneezing, breeze low, and slowly 
stumbling into skin. Love,
returns, and you aren’t ready.
Love returns and you have
only just pulled your heart
out of water.

Hey, in your recent Poison-Ivy-wraps-Batman-in-kudzu fic you mention that Harley died, and in Sweet you mention that she was "dunked" by the Joker. Did Joker kill Harley at some point? (Also curious if it's related to Harley's red-rimmed irises)

i don’t know who started the whole ‘joker dunked harley in the same chemical bath that jokerized him’ thing, but i stole it and added in some ‘technically this was murder it just didn’t stick’ - it bleached her skin/hair/eyes, interfered with her ability to feel pain (so she’s capable of terrifying feats of strength that basically tear her body apart because she can’t feel that that’s what she’s doing), and interacted weirdly with her schizophrenia (got rid of her tics, reduced her focus and impulse control, worsened her visual hallucinations and susceptibility to delusions) (it also changed how she responds to her meds which is why it’s so much harder for her to stay medicated)

i added the eyes thing because it seemed like something capable of bleaching joker and harley to look like perma-clowns would have other visual effects beyond the usual joker’s-green-hair. also i thought it would be kinda cool and creepy.

(my theory is that the original joker chemical bath idea came about because figuring out what would and would not completely ruin someone’s makeup is a pain in the dick and saying ‘no they actually just look like that’ solves the problem pretty neatly, and once you’re doing more with harley she runs into the same problem/solution)

could any of us have predicted the trump presidency in all its glory???? political satire: cancelled. Like idk what’s the point of Samantha bee and Trevoh Noah and John Oliver and Seth Meyers right now. not that I think they shouldn’t exist but they many of them exist in a vacuum in a liberal circle jerk. Even people like my dad who watches John Oliver regularly and likes Samantha bee he voted for trump so it’s like???! What’s the point. What effective role can comedic political satire have at this point I am genuinely wondering. It’s great to have fact-checkers at the end of the day but not if the only people watching already know that the people being fact checked are lying. But at the same time we have a president who gets so butthurt at comedic portrayals of him that these satiric portrayals need to exist. Idk I just hope this presidency has changed liberals who think that watching a John Oliver clip and sharing it on facebook is their most effective way of activism I (naively, maybe) think it has.

I saw somebody in the asexual tag saying that heteroromantic asexuals are straight and don’t belong in the lgbt+ community and saying that it was so sad the ace community wasn’t used as a tool to talk about sexual abuse

and then claiming they could do this because they “used to think they were asexual”

I used to think I was a lesbian. does that give me the right to completely invalidate lesbians and tell them that they don’t deserve a community unless it can be used as a tool? no. absolutely not.

and in what universe does anybody have the right to do that to another human being?
