ok well that was a shitty last post so here is a new one

i basically quit tumblr because it was getting to be too tiring to keep up with, both in terms of content and culture, and i was spending too much time on the computer. but. there are tumblr users who i miss and don’t know of another way to stay in touch with/follow/creep on, so i’ve created a new account that will hopefully/most likely be more of a lurker account - at least until classes really start up; we will see. ANYWAY for those of you who know my default handle and care to look, it will probably be easy to find if i haven’t found you first.

if i don’t follow you with that account, don’t worry - there are less than 10 people i intend to start off with, and this account is following over 100. odds are you aren’t going to be one of them. also, it’s not you it’s me, etc. if you want to leave a message, go ahead, but i can’t guarantee a response what with classes and work and shit. even so, i’ve mostly had a great time on this account and with all of you, so thanks. keep on keepin’ on, and peace out.

this is a post

i am not using tumblr any more, apparently, but this had to be shared

maria was introducing me to the world of “transabled” and “transethnic” and “otherkin/trans-species” people and JESUS CHRISTING FUCK

i can tolerate only so much

(also, speaking as an actual disabled and trans* person, if you are “transabled” come here so i can punch and kick and HSJFHDFHDSADFsd yes)

there was a post where someone sounded perfectly rational about facing discrimination as an otherkin, comparing it to actual trans* discrimination, blah blah blah and i figured out where the problem still was

with trans* folks it cuts both/all ways, yes right

so if you can show me a lion discovered in the remotest parts of a jungle, trying desperately to walk on its hind legs like a ~human~ then maybe i will take you seriously, otherkin

until then

FUCK OFF

9 a.m. class = waking up at 6:45 a.m. and on tuesdays i have a lab that goes until 7:10 plus pride meetings at 7:20 (….maybe)

and the night before i have a class that doesn’t let me get home until 10:30 p.m.

i’m going to die

Ryou Bakura “Monster Fable” - 例の友人.flv (by pterodotyl)

this art is fucking gorgeous - done by mitsumine, whose pixiv is here - and god, if this video doesn’t capitalize on the horror potential then i don’t know what does. (ygo is hardcore you guys HARDCORE)

since i couldn’t find a english translation for this song anywhere, i decided to try and do my own! however, i also couldn’t find the kanji lyrics and my tenuous grasp on japanese grammar is now rusty to boot, so…. well, you’ll see.

(parentheses) mean interpolations for clarity, and [brackets] mean that romaji-only lyrics can go fuck themselves

MONSTER FABLE by Naomi Tamura (laughably rough English translation)

Long time ago
Sore wa shounen to kokoro yasashii Monster no ohanashi

LONG TIME AGO
There was a boy with a gentle heart – (This is a) MONSTER fable

Kono saki yamaoku ni kyoubou na mono no sumika ari
Chikayoru bekarazu

 [Nine years ago] a brutal thing appeared - Don’t go near it

Hitoribotchi no Monster
Samishisa ni kizukanai Hana to utai kotori to hanasu

Ano hi maigo no shounen ga kureta deai wa Joyful

Solitude of the MONSTER
The loneliness doesn’t change – [flowers and chants, talking to songbirds]
[That boy’s dancing] – (he’s been given) a JOYFUL present

Boy & nageki no Monster
Dareka ga kimi no tomodachi kizutsukeyou to shitara
Damatte me wo soraseru kai

BOY AND the MONSTER of grief
Somebody who is your friend will get hurt
Doesn’t being silent warp your sight?

Hitobito wa sakenda
"Shounen wo sukuidase" Seisho ni chikatte

People yell,
"Free the boy" – [swear on the bible]

Ikari wa sora wo saki inazuma wo sasotta
Machihazure no kyoukai sentaku wa sei ka shi ka
Inori tsuzukeru Set me free

[Anger starts, tempting lightning from the sky]
(On the) outskirts of society, choose life or death - SET ME FREE

Boy & nageki no Monster
Utsukushisa wa mune ni chiisa na honoo de itsumo kimi wo terashiteru
Boy & nageki no Monster
Kanashimi no hamon omoide no naka kare wa iki tsuzuketeru

BOY AND the MONSTER of grief
In his beautiful heart a small fire always shines

BOY AND the MONSTER of grief
Ripples of sadness - inside of memories he lives on

Saa Mou oyasumi
Futari wa mou aenai no
Boy & nageki no Monster
Yume no naka de aeru yo

Come, soon (we’ll say) good night
Two people never to meet again
BOY AND the MONSTER of grief
"I’ll see you in your dreams"

Boy & nageki no Monster
Utsukushisa wa mune ni
Boy & nageki no Monster
Kimi no naka iki tsuzuketeru

BOY AND the MONSTER of grief
Inside that beautiful heart

BOY AND the MONSTER of grief
He lives on

this post is brought to you by a plug-in

wow i haven’t been on tumblr for a week, thanks to research projects that are EATING EVERYTHING

but a good thing about one of those research projects is that i just found out vermont made their birth certificate laws better back in may! (missed it because of surgery, etc) whether i can take advantage of it is a separate, more complicated issue, but this is really good anyway!
