This kitten needs a strong cauldron of coffee and for everyone to leave it alone FOR FIVE GOD. DAMN. MINUTES.
Perfect caption is perfect.
More armor for women, that would actually work. Not my original photos.

Hey everyone I started a donation page. Some of you know why this is important to me. And if you don’t but want to, feel free to askbox me. I won’t make this a huge post about all my life problems, because everyone goes through a lot of shit and everyone can use some extra cash. But I would appreciate the help.
Check it out here.

1. The person I like and why I like them.
One person? Heh. I like at least….oh. Six people right now? One of whom is, obviously, my fiancee. The people I like are all clever as hell, in their different ways, they’re all insanely sweet . Or at least they’re insanely sweet to me. A good half of them have absurdly flexible systems of morality, the other half are incredibly grounded in being good. Every single one of them is into kink, I pretty much adore that.
2. a famous person I’ve been compared to.
Neil Gaiman, because of the hair. And the writerly thing.
16. a drunken story.
I could tell you about the time I went on a new year’s trip with a gallon of milk, and spent my time downing it, vodka and rum. Or about the time where I was making out with a tree while on the phone and then pouring water on my friend’s shirt and then cuddling with him. I think one of my favorite moments was after a day of drinking hard, drinking a massive amount of whiskey. My friend was puking his guts out in the toilet, and I was sitting there, gloating, finishing his alcohol, our friend’s alcohol, and eating the last of the chicken nuggets just because I could. I may have also told him that if we were ever to fight - he would remember this moment, me standing above him.
I was totally a jerk that night, though to be fair, that entirely fits with that friendship.
Those times I turn into my father while drinking
22. 5 things i want to change.
- I want to change the number of genderqueer and trans characters in fantasy, want to make it so its not something so rare. That gender, in general, is something that gets seen and explored more in fantasy fiction.
- I want to change the perspective of, well. Pretty much the majority of people. I want to educate people on sexuality and gender especially.
- I want to change how many awful comments I hear about myself whenever I go out and am obviously effeminate in some way. Nobody should have to feel that, deal with that, or feel afraid just for being themselves and dressing how they want to.
- I want to change…okay I’m not gonna be able to limit this to five. because I want to change how education is viewed, how history is viewed, how culture is viewed. I want to change how people view, views. Perspective is so important, and its one of the things I love about writing and about fiction - because it’s a tool of perspective. It can do a lot, and one thing its useful for is making people aware of perspectives. Of how things can feel.
- I want everybody’s pants to have pockets. Real pockets. I love pockets.
- I want everybody to have their own version of Hogwarts.
- I want to change how people keep themselves so small, so tiny - and help everybody realize the galaxies they store inside. The storms and rivers and suns.
- Gonna stop there heh.

This is my pros/cons list so far for possibly moving to Portland in the near future.
- v. environmentally-friendly
- good mass transit/bike-friendly options
- politics of the city align closely with my own
- health-conscious food (vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, etc.) so more likely I’ll be able to eat things pertaining to my food allergies and not die
- NO SALES TAX FUCK U NH I DON’T NEED U ANYMO
- recognizes queer marriages performed out-of-state
- I could have a pet hedgehog
- two of my closest friends live there so I wouldn’t be alone :3
- I’d finally get out of my parents’ house and (hopefully) get proper mental care
- not a lot of snow
- volcano??? what do I do????
- high income tax
- queer marriages cannot be performed in the state itself/not legal there yet
- really far away from everything I’ve known/everything I’m used to
- Seattle is farther away from Portland than NYC is from where I live right now so like… band tours and stuff. :( Unless bands go to Portland which some of my fav bands do have Portland on their schedules right now so it’s not a terrible thing.
(Also, if you live/you know of anyone who lives in Portland, send them over to my ask. I’d love to chat with residents and add it to my research before making any decisions.)
Addressing your Cons:
Yeah, I think Sarah pointed this out. But while there isn’t a lot of snowfall in Portland we are right next to Mt. Hood and so there’s a lot of that.
Queer marriage is legal in Oregon as of May, 2014 - actually. It’s one of the 19 states in which it is, though it’s a relatively recent debacle.
We don’t live directly on top of the simply dormant volcano, so we’d mostly need to worry about ash I’m pretty sure - which is scary but can still be dealt with via basic precautions if something does occur.
A lot of bands do go to Portland, and though Seattle is like 4 hours away, you have people here that’d happily make trips of it with you even if they weren’t going to see the band probably.
And - I think that the really far away from everything you’ve known and are used to is also a good thing. At least mostly cause it gets you away from your family in such a distinct way that it might be potentially good for you to get so far away. (It’s a good way of getting far away but to a place with familiar faces that care about you.)
Powell’s Book store is Portland’s equivalent of the Strand and is amazing.
Everyone here is absurdly, noticeably, nicer than in NY. Which helps mitigate a lot of social stresses when having to deal with random people and strangers when out and about or doing things.
Lots of parks. Lots of like grassroots activism and things.
I will think of more things later
