[ TOH AU ] - The Amethyst Guard
More doodles of my new AU!!
The events of the AU take place a bit later than they do in the canon timeline, and Amity is slightly older here though her eye-bags and such mostly come from the different lifestyle and standard she and others had to hold her up to.
Her first meeting with Luz is very chaotic and has a huge impact on the changes to her character, though the path to those changes is quite long and tangled. She’s also really cold and stoic in this storyline, acting in front of most others much like she acts in front of her strict mother, so the “breaking” of her character in frustration when she meets Luz is quite a big moment for her! This makes her question a few things about herself along the line and initially makes her keep her guard up around others even more,,,
Also bonus Amity:
Caption: [So, you’re nonbinary. You’ve got your nouns figured out, you got your pronouns figured out. What could possibly go wrong? Until, there’s a formal setting. You have to use a title. You don’t have a doctorate! So you go online, you look “what are gender neutral titles”, “nonbinary titles” and everything everywhere says “mx”. It’s fine. You just don’t feel like its right for you. So what do you do?
Hi I’m Tuse, I’m nonbinary and I’m a huge linguistics and history nerd. And I want to share some alternate options for nonbinary titles. Let’s start with what we already know. Mister and Missus. Those are the base gendered titles in English. Mrs. comes from Mistress. So, mister and mistress. The ending of those “-ter” and “-tress”, those are the modern English forms of the Latin tor and trix.
So one great option is just removing the gendered ending. So just “Mist”. I really like this because its simply, to the point. I like to shorten it with “M”. But my favorite option is- Latin didn’t have two grammatical genders. Latin had a neuter gender. And so, the neuter equivalent of “tor” and “trix”, is “trum”. So “Mistrum”.
I really like this, I use it for myself. I like to shorten it as “Mm”. And I really like it because it is unambiguous. It is very clearly not mister, not mistress, not missus, and not miss. That’s what I like to use for myself. I love exploring other options for nongendered titles and nongendered language in general.
We have a tendency to come up with one option and then expect everyone who doesn’t fit into the two binary options to use that third option. And we don’t have to do that. If you have other options for what you like to use as your title as a nonbinary person, I would love to hear it. Please share!]
Note: Because this was being commented a lot on the original video, of course these work in English and not necessarily other languages. That doesn’t mean that they can’t be helpful, just that they might only be helpful in English.
If I’ve learned anything from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, it’s that it is the one show where quotes are more normal and sane out of context than in context.
The “Can I offer you a nice egg in this trying time?” quote is bookended by Charlie violently spewing blood on a date
“And whats the context of THAT?”
Oh dont worry it’s fake blood. Charlie just swallowed way too many fake blood capsules. You see, he’s pretending to be a Texas millionaire.
“You can’t think about saving the whole world. You have to think about saving one person, Miles. Just think of someone you love.”
“My mom, and…my uncle and my dad.”
“In that order? Wanna talk about that?”
Another redraw, this time from that great deleted scene.
Hey btw, to cis people unfamiliar with this kind of thing:
If you accidentally deadname someone, handle it the same way you would if you’d accidentally called someone your dog’s name. Just a quick and casual “ah fuck sorry, that’s not your name” will do, this kind of shit happens and names are all registered in the same part of the brain.
You wouldn’t write someone a whole e-mail essay about how you feel and how you’d never actually mistake them for a dog. People understand, there’s no need to make it weird.
i feel ghost is very inept in having familial bonds with anyone - especially after being more or less alone for most of their life, they’d be unsure how to feel finally being apart of a family. moreover receiving any form of gift from another as they’ve only ever gotten items through buying them or taking them from someone else, the concept of having something sentimental given specifically to and for them from someone special is very foreign - they would be confused yet cherish the item all the same
My hot take is that actually food allergies are a disability and more people need to realize that. The amount of research people with food allergies have to do when they want to go visit places but arent sure if they’ll have access to any food there is insane. Allergy friendly food is almost ALWAYS incredibly expensive in stores bc of all those fucking fad diets that like yoga instructors and middle age soccer moms make popular. And on top of the price, it is so hard to FIND! Almost evrry grocery store ive been to has a tiny ass allergy section that is almost always near empty. Plus what about people who don’t have the money to pay 10$ for a loaf of bread? You go to starbucks and non-dairy milks are like 70 cents extra? People are definitely out there buying and eating stuff that is destroying their digestive systems because they have no other choice. I am begging people to stop pretending that catering to people’s food allergies is elitist and not worth is. We need to make these options openly available.
And this is one of several reasons that I firmly hold the opinion that prohibiting people from bringing their own food into sports stadiums and amusement parks and hotels is an accessibility issue, and should be treated as such. Concession stands and hotel restaurants do not and cannot provide enough choices to accommodate every possible food allergy or intolerance, and that means not letting people bring in their own food = not letting people eat while they’re there.
(Side point: it’s also a religious discrimination issue – and it’s even more trouble when religious dietary restrictions and health-related dietary restrictions overlap. I’ve been in the center of that particular venn diagram and it sucks.)
are you in the top 1% of listeners or are you normal
Top 0.001% haha motherfuckers. Also:
That’s 5.8 months of music
Just casually stumbling across the #1 music listener in the US on tumblr.com. What other website does it like this
i mean, maybe this is my inner “survivor of child abuse” talking, but I am not going to tell abusive parents that they’re bad at bringing up their children without a bullet proof plan with regards to how I could protect my student from the emotional and physical backlash of that meeting.
Important thing to remember about intervening in abuse in general. Any actions taken by others to hold the abuser accountable WILL be taken out on the victim and not the person doing the confronting. Do not confront an abuser about their actions unless you know for absolute certain that you can protect their victim from the fallout.
The 1st grade class behind me is debating my gender.
Child one: I think it’s a girl.
Child two: how come?
Child one: because they’re wearing purple.
Child three: but… Mr P wears purple and hes a boy I think.
3: I think shes a girl
2: why’s that?
3: her hair is in a ponytail and girls wear ponytails.
2: dont your brother wear a ponytail, though?
2: I think it’s a boy.
2: big muscles. You ever see a girl with big muscles?
1 & 3: SHE-RA!
2: you should go over there and ask.
3: why me?
2: they didnt take your picture yet.
2: I dunno, just go over there.
3: no you do it.
2: no you!
3: no you!
1: I’ll do it!
Child 1 comes up to me.
1: hey you! Are you a boy or a girl?
Me: -points to camera- I’m a photographer.
3: see I told you!
The funny part besides -gestures to all of it- is that I’m not terribly androgynous. So these kids picking out gender aspects based on things like… I’m wearing purple while having big muscles and a ponytail like
god i wish adults bothered to talk about gender like this
for the characters to draw, if you don't mind, maybe some galolio with pre op lio again ? i don't have a precise idea sorry, your pre op lio just gives me life and joy
It’s been a while since I drew, idk if I’m happy with it or not tbh lol. This one took extra long with extra struggle so it was a sorta 20- 30 min sketch including erasing and redrawing their faces so many times xnx.
I’m really happy you enjoy my pre op Lio sketches! ;u; I always get nervous posting obviously trans things. I conveniently censored it a bit cause I’m nervous bout tumblr sometimes but I gave him a hairy belly to make up for it pft. I’ll do another sketch uncensored tomorrow I promise!
