The year is 2030. Most 90’s and 2000’s kids have children of their own, People watch tv and movies now more than ever. Every show has at least 1 gay recurring character. A mom sits on a couch, watching a show with her kid, when the child asks about the shows that his mother watched when she was younger. 

She responds with, “Well sweetie, they weren’t like the shows on tv today. Only a couple of shows had characters like him.” She points to the television.

The child, innocent in all of this asks, “Why?”

The mother open her mouth, not entirely sure how to respond, but she finds the words. “People would get upset about a little child having two mommies or two daddies.”

The child climbs up on the sofa next to his mom. “But that is mean. You and mommy are very happy.”

His mother smiles.

“Yes hunny. We are very happy.”


Black for hunting through the night
For death and mourning the color’s white
Gold for a bride in her wedding gown
And red to call enchantment down.
White silk when our bodies burn,
Blue banners when the lost return.
Flame for the birth of a Nephilim,
And to wash away our sins.
Gray for knowledge best untold,
Bone for those who don’t grow old.
Saffron lights the victory march,
Green will mend our broken hearts.
Silver for the demon towers,
And bronze to summon wicked powers.

— Shadowhunter children’s rhyme

Hah. I’m pretty sure I have gained like 20 pounds within these two weeks. The one thing I fucking hate about traveling is I eat out every. Damn. Day. I loathe eating out.
