Love your trans peter post! My head cannon is steve being trans. Back in the day, he was short and small like peter. How quick to violence people were with poor 1900's steve. The real reason he couldn't get into the army was because what was on his birth certificate. When Bucky told him to 'sell bonds/manufacture' instead of enlist, those were woman's jobs back then. The doctor hooked him up with the super soldier experiment, adding in extra procedures.

damn u right!! but okay- I’ve actually been meaning to talk about my trans Steve headcanon for quite some time now, so I’m just gonna info-dump a bunch of trans history and MCU interpretations right here. SO:

First of all, the setup of Steve Rogers as a short, scrawny boy who’s bullied and beat up all the time fits easily with how a trans man in the 1940s might have lived. This scene from Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) honestly looks like that cliche trans art trope where it’s like: “trans person looks in the mirror and their reflection is the right gender”. you know the one.

Later in that same scene, Bucky outright says that the reason he thinks Steve is joining the war is to “prove himself.” You could totally interpret this as Steve trying to shove himself into the absolute most masculine role in his society in order to reaffirm his own gender identity. 

Bucky is also incredibly worried about the consequences Steve will face if he is “discovered falsifying enlistment documents”. If you headcanon Steve as a trans man, this adds new depth to the stakes. Instead of lying about his respiratory issues and hometown, Steve would be lying about his sex assigned at birth. Which, given the state of the US in 1943, would’ve had even harsher punishment.

It’s also interesting that Dr. Abraham Erskine (the man who accepts Steve into the military) is a German scientist. In the early 1900s, the Germans were at the forefront of medical treatment for trans people. The first clinic to treat transgender people (Magnus Hirschfeld’s ‘Institute for Sexology’) opened in Germany in 1919. But as the Nazis came to power in the 1930s, many of the German scientists at this clinic migrated to the US to treat the trans people here. 

Steve is recruited by Dr. Abraham Erskine in 1943, which would be congruent with the time the German scientists from the ‘Institute for Sexology’ immigrated to the US. So, to clarify: a German-American doctor spends his life researching and creating a serum that instantly masculinized Steve via intra-muscular injection. I would like to point out that for trans men, testosterone is administered the same way. Also, this timeline just so happens to line up with a key point in the history of transgender medical treatment. Huh. Interesting.

In addition, the following quote by Dr. Abraham Erskine can easily lend itself to a discussion on transmasculinity:

“…the strong man who has known power all his life, may lose respect for that power, but a weak man knows the value of strength, and knows… compassion.”

and– hey, I just wanna point out the… interesting parallel… between the flag pole scene in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

and the arrow scene in Mulan (1998)

…like wow… okay. there’s actually a lot of parallels between these two movies, (except in Mulan the protagonist enters the ‘male’ gender role out of necessity whereas Steve does so by desire, differentiating between a cross-dresser and a trans man) but I won’t go there today. nope.

Then the introduction of Peggy Carter leads Steve to question his existing perceptions of gender roles. He admits that “I guess I just don’t know why you’d join the army if you were… a woman” which, under this trans interpretation, could be Steve projecting his own relationship with gendered aspirations onto Peggy.

And god, that’s not even delving into how easily his ‘transformation sequence’ could fall into a trans narrative.

In the second act of the film when a woman hits on him, Steve responds with visible discomfort. When he first realizes that she’s hitting on him, his immediate reaction is to cover his chest.

The First Avenger mentions Steve’s lack of romantic/sexual experience many times throughout the film. Steve passes it off as ‘not having found the right partner yet’ but hypothetically– if he were a trans man, that could be another reason for his fear of sexual intimacy. If he’s #stealth and passing as male, then any form of sexual intimacy could risk his reputation and his ability to remain in the military. 

Oh, and did I mention? Statistically speaking, approximately 20% of the US transgender population serves (or has served) in the military. This is over double the rate of the cisgender population. So, tbh, it’s not unrealistic to have a trans character so adamant about enlistment, patriotism, or military life.

Anyways, yeah- Captain America’s story (especially in the MCU) definitely lends itself to an interpretation of Steve Rogers as a trans man.

Hey Candy I have a question! Are you planning on changing any of your hairstyles for your other characters (Orange, Blue, Rose, ect.)like you did with Ash? And also, keep up the good work! Love your art!

I have changed some of them so that they won’t all look the same! (That and I need a good excuse to draw after coming back from my vacation!) I’ll be only going through a few of them, not all. :0

I specifically picked this hairstyle for Ash since it gives off his flamboyant nature, heh!

And Terra is based off the main Inkling girl in Splatoon 2, but her short hair accentuates her tomboy nature! :>

And finally…

This guy’s REAL colors have already been revealed for my Patrons! Who this guy is, we’ll never know just yet! >:3

I started following you in recent months because I was part of a chat that hated you (I hope this doesn't make you feel bad) and wanted to see for myself this girl who causes drama. In short I don't understand. You're kind and funny and great. Seems to me like some people are jealous. I just wanted to apologize for those people. And I love your work!

Yeah, apparently I’m a popular topic to some people. A lot of them don’t know me. They’ve seen one post they didn’t agree with and gone off with their screenshots like they own the place. Usually, they’re the people who’ve spread hate and they don’t like that I’ve countered their argument or called them out on it. There are some popular bloggers in this fandom who flock to twitter, mocking people and getting away with it, even being praised for it. I have been called names because people like me. I don’t control other people. I don’t force them to like me. They just do. That used to bother me, but now I just stick to my bubble. Their true colours will show one day and they’ll realise the reason they don’t have notes/followers/attention isn’t because of other bloggers, it’s because of their attitudes. Until then, myself and others will continue to be the focal point of their jokes. 

Those people are toxic. Anyone who does that – taking screenshots, storing evidence like some kinda police officer – is against growth. They don’t seem to understand that people say things that will be misconstrued or they simply have a bad day and say something they don’t mean. Those people are the ones who love drama. I just wanna reblog photos and write. And, honestly, I don’t have time to be here causing drama. The few times I’ve been the centre of drama have been because I’ve received anon hate and/or something has made it into the tags (maybe I don’t like x ship) even though I haven’t tagged it. But I never bash anything or anyone. If I don’t like it I simply say so. I think that’s permitted. Lol.

You sound like you have a good head on your shoulders, anon. If everyone thought for themselves instead of mindlessly nodding their heads and agreeing with the values of others (without checking for themselves) then the world would be a better place. 

I wish you a good day. <3

I just wanted to tell you that I have re read (again) on thin ice and I just. I love it. I fall in love every time, the way you write the characters, the dialogs, the interactions between all of these dorks. it makes me feel like both coming home and meeting a new person. I could re read it again and it would feel like the first time. thank you so much for writing it, it's the best thing you could give us

well

gosh

thank you. honestly, so much. i get really disheartened with this story sometimes. sometimes i don’t want to finish it. sometimes i get upset with what ive written so far. being an author sucks sometimes, mainly bc you’re constantly in a state of growth (much like any other artist) so your work from literally months ago looks like shit to you now. 

but like - hearing that people not only read and enjoy, but READ IT SEVERAL TIMES OVER and STILL ENJOY IT blows my mind a little bit. it makes me really buckle down during whatever free time i have to deliver you guys a decent chapter. i’m trying my best because of people like you, y’all really make all the bullshit that fic authors get worth it. i adore all of you. 

thank you. wholeheartedly, thank you. this means a hell of a lot more than you could understand.

Where would one go to read the My hero academia manga?

You can read it on MangHere  or  KissManga  (at least those are the ones I use)!!! I also like to read new chapter updates on  MangaStream , although they don’t seem to upload extra content in chapters like MH or KM do

anonymous asked:

You know what really pisses me off? When people are like 'oh deatons Scott's father figure' like no! What was Papa stilinski? A fucking potato? I don't think so buddy! That man was as much a father to Scott as he was to Stiles!

Okay but like… to me this depends on backstory that we don’t have. Because how old was Scott when he met Deaton? Probably a little kid when he had that dog, Roxie. 

And around that time, the sheriff was drunk off his ass every night and was barely able to be a good father, much less a father figure. So it’s very possible that Scott has spent more time with Deaton as this steady, calm presence in his life. 

So I guess it really depends on how you perceive the narrative of the sheriff’s alcoholism, you know?

sevarate  asked:

who is your favorite gem?

PERIDOT IS THE BEST LIL DORITO BABY I LOVE THEM FOREVER AND EVER.

After Peri, I reeeeeally like Padparadscha Saphire - I really want to cosplay them and just shout things that are happening around me.

After Padparadscha - probably Amethyst? I’m honestly such an Amethyst.

(For all my astrology babes - I’m probably an Amethyst Sun, Peridot Moon, Amethyst Rising lol - and my Venus is probably in Steven)

My favorite Non-Gem character is Sadie, but Lars is a VERY CLOSE second.

Number 4, if you would?

Questions regarding the muse! (Still accepting!)

4.  If you could tell your muse one thing, what would you tell them?

aaaaa gosh. listen. this boy.

He’d never believe me in a million years but just, I’d tell him that he’s so good. ;u; He’s always been so upset that he lost that first fight against the Robot Masters (the song “Hope Rides Alone”), but I would tell him that he never had a chance from the start, it was never a fair fight to begin with and it wasn’t his fault. For his whole life he’s felt like a failure because of that, but he’s done so much more since then and he’s so much more capable than he realizes. He’s a great strategist, he’s excellent at using his environment to his advantage in a fight, he’s a good leader. And he’s becoming an excellent roboticist in his own right; in a matter of years he could be capable of rivaling any of the Doctors’ skills. And he doesn’t think about it because it’s not what he was “built to do,” but he started from nothing, no preprogrammed knowledge of robotics or repairs or programming, and he’s gotten to the point of being able to reliably repair other robots and himself, and reassemble and even replicate machines just by disassembling them and examining them.

And he cares way more than he wants to admit about others, and yeah he’s a little reckless with his own life when it comes to that but he just ;; he just loves his friends so much and loves himself so little

*lays down* He’s just so good you guys

i love my son
