Sometimes you’re 23 and standing in the kitchen of your house making breakfast and brewing coffee and listening to music that for some reason is really getting to your heart. You’re just standing there thinking about going to work and picking up your dry cleaning. And also more exciting things like books you’re reading and trips you plan on taking and relationships that are springing into existence. Or fading from your memory, which is far less exciting. And suddenly you just don’t feel at home in your skin or in your house and you just want home but “Mom’s” probably wouldn’t feel like home anymore either. There used to be the comfort of a number in your phone and ears that listened everyday and arms that were never for anyone else. But just to calm you down when you started feeling trapped in a five-minute period where nostalgia is too much and thoughts of this person you are feel foreign. When you realize that you’ll never be this young again but this is the first time you’ve ever been this old. When you can’t remember how you got from sixteen to here and all the same feel like sixteen is just as much of a stranger to you now. The song is over. The coffee’s done. You’re going to breathe in and out. You’re going to be fine in about five minutes.

Fan fiction is a way of the culture repairing the damage done in a system where contemporary myths are owned by corporations instead of by the folk.

Beyond the Binary: the new non-binary website!

beyondthebinaryuk:

PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST THIS FUNDRAISER! IT’S A NEW ONLINE MAGAZINE FOR NON-BINARY FOLKS, CENTERING PEOPLE OF COLOUR. 

Help a new UK trans online magazine site get off the ground by making sure we reach our target of £900 in 40 days.

What is Beyond the Binary?

Beyond the Binary will be a submissions-based magazine website, which aims to give non-binary people in the UK the opportunity to contribute and share what they are experiencing, thinking and doing. We recognise that there is a lack of non-binary representation in the media, and that often non-binary people’s voices aren’t heard. Beyond the Binary wants to re-balance that, and give non-binary people a platform.

Beyond the Binary is run by non-binary people, for non-binary people. We already have a Working Group of over 70 members passionate about creating and contributing to the site. Beyond the Binary aims to reach out and be relevant to as many people as possible, which is why we’re focussing on submissions and welcoming people who identify anywhere on the non-binary spectrum from the UK to submit articles or other media on a range of different topics, from real life, discussion and opinion, to reviews, artwork, and fiction. As well as that, we’d like this to be a community resource – hosting events, projects, and lists of safe and inclusive groups and organisations. Interested? We have some submissions information here! 

Why is it important?

Currently, there’s little in the way of representation or work with non-binary people in the UK, so this project is much needed. A lot of voices are coming out of the US, and Beyond the Binary was in part inspired by all the amazing activism and community resources overseas. Having said that, we are also aware that even within this small group of people, the voices who usually get heard are white, and we encourage and welcome people of colour to submit even if they are based outside of the UK.

There is already a lot of excitement behind this project, and some of the Editorial Team working on putting the site together made a video to explain a bit more about themselves and the impact of this project.

We’d love for this site to look and feel amazing. We deserve a space of our own to express our feelings about the stuff that affects us, laugh about our lives, and inspire others. Let’s make it happen.

Donate via our Indiegogo page here, where you can read more about the project and our cash breakdown. We’ll be providing updates every week as well.

Here’s our INDIEGOGO.

Thanks a lot!

I CHALLENGE YOU TO A BATTLE OF WITS

The game is this:
I set up five pairs of identical looking shots:
pineapple juice or lemon juice,
Chinese sugar tea or apple cider vinegar,
flat coke or soy sauce,
water or distilled white vinegar,
and tomato juice or Tabasco sauce.

I challenge a player in the circle to a color. They pick one and I take the other, with our best poker faces. Other players have to guess who got what.

It’s like the Princess Bride/A Study in Pink but no one gets poisoned!

This is genius

This sounds hilaribad.

Let’s do it.

A soul mate isn’t necessarily the person you love most. It’s the person who sincerely challenges you in the aspects of life that everyone else can’t. Soul mates fight. But god damn they love, too.
