Okay so who hasn’t done this. If you have and I haven’t seen it, ignore me.
Hello Maya! I hope you don't mind this, but can I ask you what are you referring to in your tags? Is it about Robin or something else? Have a nice day! 🌹
Hi! It’s nothing, just me somehow ending up thinking about Harry last night and feeling this urge to remind him, if he ever were to stroll around here, that even when things, for various reasons, get unexpectedly hard, we do know he’s got a beautiful soul and that he’s got us. That both he and Louis got us, always <3
Waves crash down
From the beach
Grains of sand flow That i’ll be here with you
Forever more, forever more, I crow
My heart beats fast
In this moment, time has collapsed Your eyes, like sunsets, rise and pass
Vines entangle my heart
Grasping, stretching, reaching
For my inner treasure, at once, I know
Forevermore, forevermore, I crow
Solemnly swearing, I can’t wait
To be one at last
Entwined, together, yet apart
The crow doth still lark
Forevermore, forevermore, I crow
How do rainbows taste
That which we do not know
Logical it may be, water is wet
And yet, and yet
The Lark cries, for it does not know Forevermore, forevermore, I crow Dusty ash fills my lungs,
The spark has caught ablaze
And all at once, I am in flame
The phoenix rises, a Lark no more
Forever more, foremore, I crow
Ti amo, Ti amo
Nothing saves me now
Your eyes ablaze, like fireflies
Softly I feel their glow
And I know, that you and I
Forevermore, forevermore, we crow
How do I overcome 'penis envy'? All these g!p/futa/abo-fics make me feel so inadequate. I'm sick of all this fucking pity-partying. It's so pathetic! I'm tired. .. if I'm beeing insensitive please ignore this ask. Wish you well.
Well, that language is going to upset some trans folks, but this is an important issue so I’m going to just tag it and hope that’s satisfactory.
I hate the term ‘penis envy’. I hate it, and I hate it for reasons that you probably don’t expect. For people who don’t know what it is, straight folks used to (and maybe still do) accuse lesbians of having penis envy which accounts for their homosexual behaviour. Sigmund Freud also used ‘penis envy’ to describe some behaviour of straight women, too. It’s a gross term.
So, all through my political years in the 90s and 00s, I recited very clearly that LESBIANS DO NOT HAVE PENIS ENVY AND THAT TERM IS DISGUSTING. I’m sure it was at the root of my historic transphobia, as well.
The problem was that part of me did have what I thought was penis envy.
It was only in recent years that I realised it wasn’t ‘penis envy’ per se, it was actual body dysphoria, and the fact I felt the lack of a penis very acutely wasn’t because lesbians all wish they had a dick, but because I, personally, felt like I should have one. I thought all women felt that way and it was a huge fucking shock to discover they didn’t.
So, anyway, thanks Sigmund Freud, for inventing a term that clouded the waters and made me take 3 decades to figure out what my issue with not having a penis was.
ANYWAY, as to where this comes to you… are you sure you don’t also have body dysphoria? I used to cry and stress and feel really strange and upset over the fact I don’t have a penis. I won’t go into too much detail (because I’m sure someone will dig this post up for a receipt blog later, because this site is disgusting and immoral like that), but feeling a lack of penis has been a big feature in my life. I now realise that it’s because I’m not cis, but it took me a very long time to get there.
I am an nb butch lesbian, but sometimes I get intrusive thoughts about being a trans boy. I don't feel or want to be a boy, but I do like looking like one and I would like to transition as transmasculine. Is this normal?
Sorry your question is just now being answered friend! (I’ve been thinking a lot about this question admittedly) I know several people that have had similar experiences; if that’s what you mean by is your experience “normals.” Heck yeah it is! Binaries are pretty deeply ingrained by us if we life here in modern western society. If someone is stepping out of a conforming to one binary gender means we want to step fully into the other binary gender right? Obvious not, but I feel like that is the thought process many of us battle with. As someone with DPD I know how much intrusive thoughts can pressure you to conform to normative ideas in order to gain approval.
To cut this rambling short; -non-boys can take t and have top surgery -Non-boys can wanna pass for men in public Your expression is not your gender. Wanting to express one way or another does not determine your gender! Good luck! I hope those intrusive thoughts leave you alone soon! -Mod t
How do you think the Jon/Dany relationship will go? Kit Harington said once in an in interview that they would either fuck or fight (he might have been trolling us but who knows). So what do you personally think might happen in the upcoming season with the mother of dragons and our KiTN? And what about Sansa? How will she react to that, if we presume she has feelings for Jon? Thanks in advance:)
**putting my answer under the cut, just in case this winds up in a j/d tag when it’s not fuckin’ supposed to but this is tumblr so who knows** **but i’m not about to start drama bc i’m tired and also not an asshole** **anyway consider this your disclaimer: this is not a j/d-friendly post**
Fic authors self rec! When you get this, reply with your favorite five fics that you’ve written, then pass on to at least five other writers.
This is fun! I’m just going to do my five favorite Spones fics I’ve written, although I could do Hulkeye as well. Maybe next time.
What Keeps Us Alive - Rated Explicit [Or, my first serious Spones fic in years after Beyond slapped me in the face with feels.]
After the events of Star Trek: Beyond, the Enterprise crew has a five-month layover on the station Yorktown as their new ship is completed. Dr. McCoy has plans to make the most of it by keeping himself busy working, but this quickly goes awry as Sulu is stricken with a mysterious ailment, Spock makes an unexpected confession, and that damned James T. Kirk goes MIA. McCoy must deal with unexplained medical phenomena as well as Sulu’s worried husband, Ben, all while navigating the tumultuous currents of his own love life.
Rules of Engagement - Rated Explicit [I really, really like this one because the premise is so funny to me. Also linking this one because it’s less well-known that Smells Like Trek Spirit.]
Spock is totally fine to have sex with Leonard, they just have to establish a few (hundred) ground rules first.
There are many stories regarding the loss of Vulcan’s moon. If you ask the mountain men they will tell you it was eaten by the starving Sehlat, brother of the stars. If you ask the river people they will tell you it floated down, down and became the Aegean Sea. If you ask the men who build great buildings and think themselves scientists, they will tell you that our moon was torn asunder by the great twin forces of Vulcan and Vega. They will all claim their story is the one true correct one.
breathe (lovely) - Rated G [Originally written for the 12 Days of Spones event and still some premium grade-A angst.]
He remembers their second date most clearly.
Gloves Off - Rated G [Also written for 12 Days of Spones and a fun little meet-cute.]
The first time they meet Spock’s fingers are frostbitten and cold.
I've been having trouble lately... I was born a female and identify as a genderfluid male (this blog helped me figure that out, so thanks!). I want to get a binder but I'm only thirteen, meaning I can't buy it myself. My dad doesn't know that I identify as this and I'm nervous about telling him because he's acted strange since I told him I was asexual. What should I do?
You could get the binder through a friend by giving them money to order it, or you can use some alternative binding techniques like these
Hi! I love your blog so much and the little stories you write are always so adorable. I was wondering what tropes/tags are your favorites to read? Or what tags/tropes do you feel like reading the most?
Awww, thank you!! That makes me very happy, indeed! *snuggles* Hmmm, there are very few tropes I actually turn away from but I am a complete and utter sucker for ‘friends to lovers’ fics and ‘high school AUs’ (I like college settings as well, but HS AUs kind of take the biscuit between the two). They can have angst but I confess, if I see a fic and it’s tagged ‘friends to lovers’ or ‘high school AU’ and ‘fluffy’?? I just cannot resist. I used to be quite into fics that made me cry but the way I feel on a day to day basis these days, I just crave fluff. I like getting lost in it. It makes me happy knowing the characters are happy and their pain isn’t too significant beyond major pining.
I also adore the ‘friends with benefits’ trope, especially fics where both person A and B are all, “I LOVE THEM SO MUCH BUT THEY JUST SEE ME AS A FRIEND AND OH, BUT THEY WANT ORGASMS FROM ME AND I PROBABLY SHOULDN’T DO THIS BUT….I’M GOING TO DO THIS.” Equally, I love the ‘enemies with benefits’ trope where unexpected feels drop in. One minute it’s all angry sex and the next, person A or B is just like, “oh no….why do I suddenly…..want to….hold their…..hand…….?”
I enjoy a vast amount of tropes but I have to say, those four get to me every time and I will consume every single one under a pairing I ship.

Pick a book you own but haven’t read yet:Jane, Unlimited by Kristin Cashore
How did you come by it? Given by a friend? Bought from a recommendation? Compelled by the cover? I was lucky to receive an ARC from the Penguin Teen booth at this year’s YALLWEST. I saw people handing out books so I just got in line not knowing what it was for! I was glad to see it was by an author I’d read before. And, besides, the cover is so shiny?
Quote the first sentence(s):“The house on the cliff looks like a ship disappearing into fog. The spire a mast, the trees whipping against its base, the waves of a ravening sea.”
Realistically, will you ever read it? There are so many other poor unread books that have been languishing in my TBR pile much longer, but I’ll probably start this one after I finish A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab because this is the first ARC I’ve ever had and also: SHINY.
You always give out this amazing advise and stuff so this is a reminder that we care about you too and we're here for you just as you're here for us. How you doing, what's up with you my dude?
Aww thank you so much Nonnie, I really appreciate this ^.^ I’m doing pretty good! Today is my last week at uni, I’m moving back Saturday morning. Yesterday and today I’ve just been doing chores (lots of washing and cleaning) which has been okay! Later today my boyf is coming over, he’s gonna come over then tomorrow we’re gonna go collect my borax so we can make slime properly this time! Then I’ve got some society stuff, then moving back! I’ve been pretty content lately. Although, I’m p sure moving out is gonna suck cause I hate change, so I’ll probably be pretty unstable on Saturday and cry a lot, but once I’m past that I’ll be good! Yesterday I went into town with friends and bought a hella nice dress:
And the shop fucked up so I got an amazing jacket that was supposed to be £25 for £5!!!! So I’m super happy about that (and kinda couldn’t shit up about it and I think i annoyed my friend cause of it and that made me feel kinda shitty but meh)

Some doodles I did on the side yesterday night ( @blesstale drew Zunde that there ) including Dreby taking his first steps. I saw this kid screaming “NOOOO!” at some meat in a grocery store before running to his mom, so there we go ✌️
