Being nonbinary is nothing to be ashamed of. You don’t have to be bursting with pride, ready to shout it from the rooftops if that’s just not who you are, but nor should you have to hide it, keep it tucked away. It’s a part of you, big or small, and you shouldn’t have to worry about life being complicated because of it, or what other people may think.
You do you. Be nonbinary. Pin the flag to your wall, or just whisper it to yourself in the middle of the night. Lead rallying cries for nonbinary support groups, or just reblog nb posts on tumblr. Be nonbinary, whatever and however that means for you.

What other witches do: cast circles, visualize, use expensive oils/herbs/crystals, set aside time for rituals/Gods
What I do: open the windows and blinds, set a stick on fire, scream “I aint get no sleep cuz of yall, yall ain’t get no sleep cuz of me” at spirits in my house, wave stick fire smoke in circles above my head, use a red dollar store pen to carve sigils into tea candle, throw salt at windows aka “little bitch gtfo my house boy bye”, uses 37493927 emojis in texts to significant otter for good vibes, cries on my dog to ward her and also bc she’s So Good, wines to Zeus about my Problems™, watches Friends with Aphrodite and laughs, whispers “please fix my car” to hephaestus and offers him a burnt match, stares pointedly at Hermes offerings and squints at tip jar
A few people seemed confused about Hikari’s crest glowing on her forehead near the end of Coexistence. A clarification:
The crest of light is, to put it in more practical terms, the crest of the “bigger picture.” @fizzingwizard had an excellent meta on Digimon’s equation of the Big Picture with self-sacrifice, which I can’t link to now on mobile but certainly will when it isn’t 2:30 in the morning. In canon Adventure, Hikari’s crest glows twice: first, when she attempts to sacrifice herself to Myotismon for the good of everyone; second, when Wizardmon sacrifices himself to save her and Tailmon. The crest of light - the crest of “the big picture” - can thus be assumed as deeply connected with self-sacrifice.
When Hikari yells at Homeostasis that there should never be sacrifices, she is not just taking a stand for her friends. She is taking a stand against the meaning of her crest. She is putting herself in opposition to the trait that defines her.
When Taichi “”“dies”“”, it is not for the big picture. Meicoomon is hurt, but still alive. Not only is Hikari herself having a breakdown, but Hikari’s crest has been betrayed - sacrifice for friends, or for sacrifice’s sake, has no justification on a “big picture” level. Hikari’s opposition to her crest has been both validated and shattered at once.
The response of the bearer of the crest of light is to find a justification for the sacrifice - to destroy Meicoomon. The response of Hikari, personally, is to demand vengeance. Pair these together…no wonder Hikari’s crest glows on her forehead. In essence, she is not just fulfilling the crest of light, she is excessively filling it: sacrifice on as wide a scale as possible, to give meaning to the “death” of one teenage boy.
“We should get out of here,” I tell him before I can stop myself.
His eyes widen and he quirks an eyebrow at me, “Are you suggesting we leave together?”
“I’m suggesting we should do something instead of sitting here, talking about how much we hate people who are in love,” I tell him in one breath. With the reminder that I will most probably not remember what happens tonight, I put down my empty glass and says, “So, Harry, do you want to do something crazy?”
here’s an excerpt from Forgive Me If I’ve Told You This Before by Karelia Stetz-Waters to convince everyone to read it, because apparently it being abt a goth lesbian in the 90s isnt enough
A Slurpee? Oh, prosaic world! How was I to say, “You are the burning light of my heart,” to a girl drinking a Slurpee? And what if I felt compelled to buy a Slurpee myself? Could I say, “Without you I am nothing,” if in my hand I held a Slurpee, the spade-shaped straw making a little wheek-wheek sound as I pushed it in and out of the lid?
yea anyways pls dont sleep on this amazing novel abt my goth gf thnx
