Why Do Transgender People Need Passports?

1) For those who can’t afford or don’t want surgery: in many states the passport is the best (and sometimes only) way to have ID that accurately reflects their gender.

2) Passports count as two forms of identification: they are weighted more heavily than a license. You can use a passport as ID in place of a birth certificate in many cases, which in many states can be very difficult to change your gender on. They are good for 10 years from the date of issue. 

3) Currently you need only a doctor’s note to change your gender on a passport. Not even a name change is necessary. You absolutely don’t need surgery: this is a rule established by the outgoing administration’s state department and can be changed easily by the new appointee. No voting, just gone.

4) You can get a passport with your current legal name and get it changed (within a year) for free: once your name change is official, you can apply to have your passport corrected. The state department has a form that you can use to get the replacement fee waived as long as you’re within that one year window.

Am I crazy?

I am rewatching the clip and I noticed something. When Even and Isak are in the kitchen, Even gets a text, he looks down at his phone confused but sends a message back and that’s it. I thought nothing of it at first and then I realised, we heard the message sent sound! Now from what I can recall, that has never happened with a character other than the protagonist, we hear the message received and message sent sounds only when the protagonist does, we never hear that from anyone else’s phone, until now.

Regardless of the fact that this is yet another hint of Even getting season 4, it’s interesting to note the fact we hear it after he has that reaction to said text; this makes me think that whoever texted him is going to play a big part in next season like ‘hey, remember this moment, remember his reaction, this will be important’ I personally feel like it’s going to be Mikael, because no speaking character in this show is there for no reason, and we still haven’t gotten a back story there (remember the video) and Vilde said that someone who went to school with Even told them about his episode back then (I’m guessing shit went down and he’s still pissed about it) 

✨ Quick and Easy "Fresh Face" Makeup✨

💄 Hopefully you have already washed your face and moisturized 💄

*note at very bottom if you wanna wear foundation/ have more time!! *

1.) apply 100% aloe vera gel to the high points of your face / anywhere you wanna highlight and allow it to get tacky.

2.) once its tacky apply (starting very lightly) your highlighter over top

🐝 this makes you look so luminous omgg

3.) if you have any problem areas conceal and powder them now , only powder over the concealer !! (please make sure it matches seamlessly )

4.) apply a cream blush of your choosing to your cheeks.

5.) run either tinted or clear brow gel through them brows sweetie. Clear mascara works too!!

6.) spray your face with a setting spray or rose water ( rose water gives your skin an extra pick me up)

7.) apply however much mascara your comfortable with ( if you have a little more time you can apply individual lashes to give yourself a fuller lash look while still looking natural. )

On YOI Ep 8 and the current rankings

So little midnight thinking to myself so decided to share, but currently, the rankings are as such:

NOTE the order of translated names is wrong on Crunchyroll: Seung Gil is currently 7th with 13 points, followed by Michele and Emil with 11 points each.

Now I could be wrong, but here’s my little analysis on this, so bear with me.

You get points based on your rankings in the qualifiers, with 1st place getting you 15 points, 2nd 13 points, 3rd 11 points, 4th 9 points and so on. The sum of the points from your two qualifiers decides whether you made the GPF or no.

Currently, only Otabek and Christophe are guaranteed to qualify, which means there are 4 more slots left.

The 6 people who currently hold rank 4-9 are all in the Rostelecom Cup. Of them, if 4 of them get higher points than Phichit (24), Thai Prince will not make it; if only 3 of them do, Phichit WILL make it.

However, I personally feel that given the way the narrative goes, it is highly likely that only 3 will qualify and Phichit will make it (yes I care a lot about him leave me alone).

(also NOTE, I have no clue what happens when multiple people tie the same number of points, so we’ll just focus on people getting greater than 24 points for now)

In order for Michele or Emil to qualify, they would have to take gold. Silver would land them at the same number of points as Phichit. Given what we’ve seen of them and their competitors, I feel this is incredibly unlikely, so they probably won’t make it.

Of the remaining 4, JJ leads. He only needs bronze or above to qualify. 4th place will tie him with Phichit.

Of the 3 who currently hold one silver (Yuuri, Yurio, Seung Gil), they have to win silver or gold. Winning bronze will get them total 24 points, same as Phichit. IN OTHER WORDS, only two of these three can be guaranteed to make the GPF, and that’s if and only if JJ gets bronze and they win silver and gold.

I feel like from the way the narrative goes, it’s highly likely (more like i’m PRAYING) that both Yuuri and Yurio make it. Which means they’d have to take gold and silver at the Rostelecom Cup. This means, unfortunately, unless he wins bronze and ties with Phichit, Seung Gil is also out (;A;). If we assume JJ makes top three and does take bronze, that means no one else from the Rostelecom Cup qualifies, and Phichit is in.

Which means /ideally/, Rostelecom Cup ends with Yuuri and Yurio taking gold and silver (either way), and JJ taking bronze. (In other words, JJ please do well but not TOO well)

This leaves our 6 GPF contestants: Otabek, Christophe, Phichit, Yuuri, Yurio, JJ.

Feel free to send me a nice correction if I’m misunderstanding anything ^ ^

overflowingpassion replied to your post “On YOI Ep 8 and the current rankings”

not expert here, but i read that if there is a tie, they decide with who had the best placing in a event (ex: Person A and B are in a tie with 26 points, person A has a gold and bronze and B has two silvers, person A wins because he got 1st in a event)

(edit 2) Also I think it is not a problem if JJ gets a gold, as long as the Yuris get the silver / bronze, because then they will have 26 and 24 points. And then we will have JJ (30p), Otabek (28p), Yuri/o (26p), Chris (26p), Yuri/o (24p) and Phichit (24p). and if seung li gets 4th place he will have only 22p   

Thanks for the addition! :D

4 Minutes to Save the World

Because @gwyndall asked about why they’re drawing attention to Mark’s count down in the s4 preview (x)… oh, it’s getting exciting now… tick tock, tick tock… ;)

A 4 minute count down made me think of a certain song– and we already know John is Madonna from the The Sign of Three post-it note game. ;)

And some choice lyrics for s4? <3 @waitingforgarridebs

If you want it
You already got it
If you thought it
It better be what you want
If you feel it
It must be real just
Say the word and
I’m a give you what you want

Time is waiting
We only got four minutes
To save the world
No hesitating


You gotta get in line, hop
Tick tock tick tock tick tock


The road to hell is paved
With good intentions
, yeah

But if I die tonight
At least I can say I did
What I wanted to do
Tell me, how ‘bout you?


(Tick tock tick tock tick tock)
I only got four minutes, to save the world

25 Reasons Natsu and Lucy are canon and meant to be:

1. Natsu managed to break the love charm on Lucy in the first episode, which can only happen when you see your true love.
2. Natsu is ultra-protective of Lucy, always desperate to save her and threatening anyone who so much as makes her cry or even remotely unhappy. Happy has noted that when it comes to saving Lucy, he won’t listen to reason. He himself said in episode 206, “ If you know me, you know I don’t let anyone get away with hurting Lucy’s feelings.”
3. Lucy only really blushes around Natsu, whether he’s just saying her name or thanking her or “flirting”. Especially in situations where Natsu shows he cares for her very much.
4. Natsu is always seeking out Lucy’s attention or space, like the numerous times he’s been in her room, her bed,her bath. In episode 5, 10 and others like them, he has insisted they do things because they’re a team. Also, he likes to incorporate himself in anything she’s doing with kinda bogus excuses for doing it, like episode 222.
5. In episode 127, the one with invisible Lucy, he was the only one to unconsciously and instinctively remembers Lucy, proclaiming she “completes” him. Lucy is so essential to him and everyone can see it. He even declared that they had to be together on missions, otherwise it “wouldn’t be the same”.
6. At times, Natsu is very considerate of Lucy’s feelings, like when her dad died and he was yelling at those brats for being idiots or when he thought she was stalked and kept watch over her. Also, when she is worried about her rent, like in episode 51 and 124, he tries to find a way to help her.
7. Lucy is the only one Natsu loans important things to, such as his scarf and jacket/vest (episode 226). Lucy is protective of the scarf because she knows it’s important to Natsu.
8. Can’t stand it when Lucy leaves or he doesn’t know where she is, like in episode 29, when they thought she left the guild or 51, when she disappeared before a mission and he went chasing after her to make sure she was okay.
9. He notices about everything concerning Lucy, even if it’s negative, like how much she weighs and things like that.
10. When future Lucy went to heaven or whatever it was, that Natsu was waiting for her, running down to grab her hand so they could have more adventures together.
11. Natsu was especially affected when future Lucy was killed, crying, insisting on keeping his promise and determined to get future Rouge for murdering Lucy.
12. Episode 73, he was so sad when Lucy couldn’t come to the festival and couldn’t seem to have fun without her. He ripped up a rainbow sakura tree so Lucy could see it, despite knowing their would be consequences. But her happiness mattered more.
13. In episode 112, when they were talking about the next episode and Happy asked Natsu if he thought of anything besides food, everything he listed had to do with Lucy. Happy even said to write it all down, meaning there was a lot more that Natsu thought about concerning Lucy.
14. When Lucy is in danger, his first priority is to rescue her. Like the Infinity clock arc, the Edolas arc, the time she was taken by the royal guards for the eclipse project, etc. Basically, he can’t stand it if she’s potentially hurt.
15. He’s called her cute, a goddess, really nice, tough as nails, incredible, weird (I think he thinks that’s a compliment), she’s called him a nice guy, dependable, and sweet. ‘Nuff said.
16. Happy has been saying for a while that they likeeeeeee each other and we’ve seen before that Happy’s theories were right, so why not this theory?
17. In the majority of the theme songs, they’ve displayed Lucy and Natsu as the main characters, now along with Erza, Gray and Wendy, meaning those five are linked together and since Wendy has Romeo, Erza has Jellal and Gray has Juvia, Nalu will ultimately happen.
18. They trust each other and work the best out of everyone. Majority of their adventures are with each other. Whether they work solo or a duo, they have complete faith in the other.
19. Natsu seemed jealous of Dan, demanding he stop the lovey dovey crap with her.
20. When that wedding moment happened in episode 163, when it looked like Lisanna would be with Natsu, they ended it with Lucy and him together, meaning they are paired together.
21. Episode 177, he whispered her name in his sleep. Just…HE WHISPERED HER NAME IN HIS SLEEP! And they tied Natsu up to stop him from going after her. Then, he gave up his position in a fight, something he loves, to save her, meaning he must love her more.
22. Knows Lucy’s scent enough to recognize it anywhere, like when he knew future Lucy was Lucy by smelling her or in episode 226, when he caught her scent despite the bunny suit blocking it.
23. Lucy was the only one he said goodbye to in episode 265, albeit by note which was kinda cowardly, he still gave her a parting gesture. Everyone else, he just left hanging. Then, when he came back, he was so happy to see her and vice versa.
24. Natsu also said in episode 277 that he could tell when Lucy was upset, meaning he’s in tune with her feelings a lot more than it may seem. He must pay close attention or at least be close enough to her to notice her. And you know Lucy knows Natsu enough to know him.
25. They have these moments that seem insignificant, but when you pay close attention, they all lead to the same conclusion: They are meant to be!


With so many other studyblrs owning muji pens/sarasas/any other type of high demand pen out there, I feel like we just have to pause and appreciate the wonderful pens by kikki-k.

They are gel (like our bestie muji) but only come in one nib size. BUT they come in a really cute case for easy (and aesthetic) storage!

I purchased them here in Australia for $14.95 (and the labelling says it’s the same for US$). ALSO when you sign up as a member with kikki-k, you get a $10 voucher to spend without a set minimum spending amount!! How cool is that? So I technically purchased these pens for only $4.95 for the whole set.

So far they are quite inky enough (haven’t died on me temporarily… yet).
I use these pens for any “fake calligraphy” I do for my bullet journaling or notes as they are thicker than the 0.38mm muji pens I own, and hence better to colour in.

Shifted - Part 3

Every Tuesday I’ll be posting a chapter from my brand new AU story. The premise is simple - what if Claire had gotten pregnant with Brianna a month or two earlier in the story, and she and Jamie had re-evaluated their priorities and decided that the cause was lost, and they were able to slip away from the army and quietly return to Lallybroch?

Author’s Note: This part contains only one chapter. Part 4 will begin next week!

Previous installments…

Part 3 - The Dream

Lallybroch, Spring 1753

“This is what you get for thinking The Odyssey is suitable bedtime reading.”

Claire sighed as Brianna’s head snuggled deeper into her chest, sniffing softly. One soothing hand stroked her daughter’s back as she glared at her husband, who had propped up on one elbow and wrapped his other arm around his women, holding them tight.

Jamie’s determined gaze met hers in the candlelight. “I dinna want her filling her heid wi’ only the Bible and fairy stories. She’s smart – she should learn the classics, and appreciate them.”

“She’s six, Jamie.”

“I ken that. But she’s got such an imagination – I thought -”

“You should think again.”

He sighed. Brianna had uncharacteristically padded down the hallway from the room she shared with her cousins and pushed open her parents’ door – running directly to her father’s side of the bed, tears streaming down her face.

Jamie had bolted upright at the noise, quickly wrapping his arms around his daughter and lifting her to sit on his lap. “What is it, a leannan? What’s wrong?”

Brianna hiccupped, wrapping her tiny limbs around Jamie’s torso. She mumbled something into his shirt.

Jamie’s brow furrowed. “What?” One big hand stroked her back, and he felt her nod furiously.

“Jamie?” Claire, now awake, sat up gingerly, carefully negotiating the bulge of a five-month pregnancy.

“It’s all right, Sassenach – wee Brianna had a bad dream.”

Jamie turned to face Claire – and she wrapped her arms around his shoulders, nestling Brianna safely between them.

“Mama’s here, love,” she murmured, kissing her daughter’s red curls. “Do you want to tell us about it?”

Brianna’s face pulled away from Jamie’s shirt, blinking slowly. “It was the Cy-clops, Da. He was here.”

“The Cyclops? From The Odyssey?”

“Aye, he was here, and in the dooryard, and he was chasing me and Maggie and Katherine and Mrs. Crook, too.” She squirmed in Jamie’s lap and turned to face her mother. “He was going to eat us and some of Auntie Jenny’s lambs were there too and – ”

Seas, a nighean.” Jamie’s hand cupped Brianna’s small shoulder. “Stop now. Dinna get yerself all worked up again.”

Brianna sniffed. She shifted to curl herself around Claire’s belly. “I couldna let him get in the house, Mama. I couldna let him get you or Baby William.”

Claire’s palm met Jamie’s on Brianna’s back, squeezing his fingers. She swallowed. Brianna was so convinced that the baby was a boy – and she’d decided he would be named William, after the uncle she’d never known but seen every day in the portrait hanging over the stairs.

“Shh. I’m fine, the baby’s fine. Awake right now, thanks to you – but fine.” Claire slowly eased back onto the pillows, drawing Brianna down with her. Jamie followed, holding them tightly and stroking Brianna’s hair. Slowly, slowly they felt their daughter settle back in to sleep.

“I know it’s maybe not the best book in the world for her to learn, aye?” he said at length, voice low. “But Claire – she’s never been more than five miles from Lallybroch. She’s never seen the world as you and I have. And I dinna want her to think that this is all there is.”

Claire sighed. Jamie had long been frustrated with the terms of his pardon – he hadn’t left the estate in almost seven years. But it was a price he’d been more than willing to pay – well worth his wife and daughter’s safety.

“I know you only want what’s best for her. But do you remember when you were her age? How easy it was for you to believe anything?”

Jamie’s thumb traced the base of her neck. “That schoolmaster down in the village will never help her understand the world as I wish her to. So I must do it myself.”

She leaned toward him across Brianna’s peaceful dreaming face, kissing him gently.

“Shh. I know. She’s lucky to have a father who cares so much.”

He kissed her again, lightly. “I worry that one day, when she’s grown – she’ll think this is a dull place, she’ll no want to stay here. I – ” He exhaled. “I want her to live her life in the way she pleases, but Claire, if that means she wishes to part from us – ”

Claire butted her nose against Jamie’s and kissed him for a long while, silencing him.

When she finally pulled back, she drew her nose up along the side of his, kissing his closed eyes.

“She’s six, Jamie. We have years and years until that may come to pass. And now with this other one – she’ll be such a wonderful sister. That will be a motivation to stay.”

He nudged her chin with his, finding her lips again.

“I dinna wish her bad dreams – but it’s nice, the four of us together like this, aye?”

“You say that only because you don’t have one child kicking you on the inside and the other kicking you on the outside.”

She felt his smile against her lips.

“Ye’ve made me so happy, mo nighean donn. I dinna tell you often enough.”

Claire’s hand traced his jaw in the candlelight. “You don’t need to tell me, idiot. You show me every day.”

He hummed, and she delighted in the feel of it under her fingers.



“Maybe the fairy stories for a bit, all right?”

He sighed, settling his head directly next to hers on the pillow.

“All right then. But ye willna begrudge me if I share wi’ her a tale I’ve been thinking of on my own for a while?”

She rubbed her nose against his, intrigued.

“Tell me?”

He kissed her chin. “Ah well, it’s just a wee story about a beautiful brown-haired lass who fell through magic stones, ken? And somehow ended up 200 years in the past.”

Jamie’s hand slid to her side and drew her palm away from Brianna’s back. He tangled his fingers through hers, thumb tracing her iron ring.


He smiled. “She missed her own people, and her own time. But her life was full of adventure – living in castles, sleeping in the heather, seeing waterhorses. She was a rare healer, too – with a kind touch, and a good knowledge of plants and herbs.”

Many times they’d lain together like this – in the deep of night, noses touching, limbs tangled or bodies still joined after the act of love – whispering to each other. The topics always changed – her time, his time. Brianna, Jenny, Ian, his parents – and even Faith. Recently, this new child. But always they discussed whether – and when, and how – to share Claire’s secret with Brianna. She had a right to know – but how much? And to what end?

Perhaps this was the best way to introduce her to the idea – after all, the best fairy stories are those with a bit of truth to them. And on the day when Claire and Jamie would tell their daughter the full truth – she’d be at least familiar with the idea.

She squeezed his fingers. “What about her knack for getting caught by enemy soldiers? Or sticking her nose in clan politics?”

His thumb caressed her knuckles. “Aye, she got into heaps of trouble along the way. Did I mention that she was English, but fell back in time to the Highlands? So she didna fully understand where she was, or why people thought of her the way they did.”

“Part fairy story, part morality tale. I think Brianna would like that.”

“I hope so. One more part, though – right after falling through the magic stones, this beautiful lass met a young lad whose shoulder was in need of mending. And after she patched him up, he was drawn to her – he knew she was a stranger in a strange land, and he swore an oath to protect her. And she needed protecting from the fairies and witches and waterhorses, though she didna ken it at the time.”

Her heartbeat quickened. He swallowed.

“He admired her spirit, her knowledge, her character. Her beauty. He always wanted to be wi’ her when she got into scrapes. And slowly the lad fell in love with her. But he didna say anything to her about it.”

“Why not?”

“Because she wasna ready – she wasna sure whether she wanted to stay, or go back through the stones, to her own time. He didna want to say anything, because he didna want to pressure her to do anything. But it tore the lad up inside, ken?”

Tears slipped out of Claire’s tired eyes. “I ken,” she said softly.

He kissed the tip of her nose. “Ah. And one day, the beautiful lass got into trouble again – but this time, she realized she needed the lad’s protection. And he gladly helped her. And then she realized that she loved the lad, too. And from that day forth, she wanted to live in the land of fairies and castles and waterhorses – not on the other side of the stones. She told him she loved him, and he was filled wi’ such joy.” His forehead met hers. “So they quickly got married – but it was still proper, though – in a kirk wi’ a priest, her wearing a nice dress, and wi’ witnesses, because that’s what she deserved. Then the lad swept her up on his horse and took her home with him.”

Claire sniffed. “Let me guess – and they lived happily ever after?”

Jamie’s thumb brushed away her tears. “Yes. It wasna easy – they didna always agree on things, because they came from different times, and she sometimes didna think she needed him to protect her. But they loved each other too much to stay mad for long. But they were – are – happy. So happy.”

Claire had no words – she could only kiss him, long and hard.

“I think she’ll like that story,” she whispered against his lips, several moments later.

He kissed the tip of her nose. “Ah well. I suppose I can fit in the Greek and Latin somewhere else then.”

Hey guys! I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my iPad, so I’m going to dedicate a post to it! I hope it helps anyone who was wondering about it! And feel free to ask me questions if you still have any!

The music swirls in his head, the memory of the old dancing hall swimming around him as the band plays his favorite song, Bing Crosby’s “Only Forever”. He sways in time with the music, remembering the familiar lyrics. He spins slowly, noting the fellow dancers falling into step around him.

Then he sees her. Y/N. Standing there in a soft green dress, cut tightly around her waist, her thick hair framing her face in soft curls. Her red lips pushed out in a pout as she reaches out to him, waiting for his hand. In a moment Bucky steps forward, taking her fingers in his own as his other arm glides around her waist, pulling her close as they sway to the music.

He inhales her scent, pressing his cheek to her temple, humming quietly as his eyes drift happily shut. “Do you think I’ll remember, how you looked when you smiled?” Bucky sang along with his favorite song, the lyrics familiar and true as he gazes down at her, her perfect smile flashing up at him. “Only forever, That’s puttin’ it mild”.

“Y/N, I want forever.” He whispers softly, his lips connecting tenderly with hers as the song fades away, light growing around Bucky’s vision.

His eyes blink open, squinting slightly at the sun shining through a crack in the boarded window. He squeezes his eyes shut, begging to recover the dissolving dream. Shifting his arm slightly, he becomes aware of a small pressure causing him to open his eyes to see you curled beside him.

How to Get a Boyfriend in Ten Easy Steps:  An Illustrated Guide, by Castiel.

1.  Once you’ve identified the object of your desire, begin with a grandiose show of affection.  This may involve buying him roses, asking him out to dinner, or raising him from the depths of eternal damnation. 

2.  After this is done, you are ready to begin introductions.  

Note:  be careful not to come on too strong!  This will only serve to frighten him, and may leave permanent hearing damage. 

3.  Don’t be discouraged if your first meeting doesn’t go quite as planned.

4.  Just give him some time to recuperate, and then casually try again.

Note:  though it may seem unnecessary, you will be much better received if you ask before entering his home.

5.  Some humans have greater difficulty coming to terms with their sexual preferences than others.  Nevertheless, if your feelings are reciprocated, he will most likely find a subtle, socially appropriate way to convey that to you. 

6.  Once your relationship has been comfortably established, personal space is no longer necessary. 

7.  Lover’s quarrel’s are rarely pleasant, but are unfortunately a constituant part of any relationship.  If, by chance, you are in the wrong – perhaps you forgot your anniversary, or accidentally unleashed an army of primordial flesh-eating monsters – it is best to find some way to apologize as soon as possible. 

8.  If cleverly named board games don’t do the trick, the best way to go about this is to prepare him the food of his preference. 

Note:  be careful to check all animals for parasites and console them adequately before their slaughter. 

9.  It’s best to establish positive relationships with future in-laws as soon as possible, even if they lie to you about having guinea pigs. 

10.  Having an emotionally-repressed significant other can be difficult.  However, if he truly loves you, there are various ways in which you both may express it.  These include:

Prolonged periods of staring and/or suggestive gestures.

Lingering, socially inappropriate glances over one’s body. 

And of course, protecting one another from the fell creatures that seek to brutally kill you.

Congratulations!  You now have a boyfriend.
