easy solution: start committing crimes! such as providing HRT to trans people! or in some places, be a good parent to your trans child(ren). If only all crimes were this easy to commit!

In which the author has been talking about Lord of the Rings-related nonsense for so long that it’s nice to talk about nonsense that’s purely from reality.Originally a nested twitter thread, as opposed to a straight up twitter thread. Sometimes things work better as a QRT than as a continuation.
Also fuck capitalization rules. If it’s good enough for twitter, it’s good enough for wordpress. I’ve read so much AO3 stuff that the only real grammar rule I care for is paragraph spacing. And just like AO3 and twitter, reading all this is free.
Magna Mater (Latin, Great Mother): the Redanian Goddess of Light and Motherhood. She’s a lioness with the shiniest mane you’ve ever seen! Her eyes are sunstones. She had to spend her last life fighting not only for her life, but also for her womanhood, and her right to be a mom.
She’s a mom now whether transmisogynoirists like it or not  ! This mom fights demons, devils, angels, gods, ghosts, and anything else it takes to get people out of whatever afterlife they’re trapped in.
“If that’s not where they want to go, they’re coming with me! ‘If the enemy leaves a door open, you must rush in.’ Sun Tzu, The Art of War. Christian God the Father’s angels may be afraid to tread, but my angels are confident and fearless!”Continue reading “Magna Mater”
Artemis was in awe of the stars around aer. Ae was finally among them after countless tests, after waiting for robots to build the shuttle piece by piece, after the grueling countdown that could’ve been called off any second.Continue reading “Star-Kissed”
Kenken: Believe it or not, Chu, Ardan Elves already do sort of understand advanced genders already―or at least advanced relationships to gender. Lady Galadriel, if you or any member of your household is reading this, we do sincerely apologize. Alright, Pixxy, hit it!
Pixxy Fire Fist: Lady Galadriel’s mom named her Nerwen! That means “man-maiden”! Does that mean she’s a maiden and a man? That’s something to celebrate! Let’s go celebrate Lady Galadriel’s advanced gender!Continue reading “Advanced Genders 102”
Kenken: Welcome, everyone, to a series of lessons on the basics of transgender power, nonbinary power, and various other topics related to advanced genders. Hey, Chu, why don’t you help me?
Chu: Okay!Continue reading “Advanced Genders 101”
Muindyr = Brothers (Sindarin).
Fair warning, there is a mention of rape in Shadow of Chaos’ segment. In the form of “Malog Bal’s a rapist, let’s kill him!” And thus, a rapist was killed.
Another fair warning: a lot of these characters aren’t from happy homes. Because of course they’re not. Who do you think created all of them? Or in the 843rd’s case, co-created them with my dad. I know whenever I talk about my family, it gets heavy, but it’s not all bad. My dad at least tried to engage with my love of storytelling. He did it during car rides, and I helped! They were basically pseudo-DnD sessions. Can you tell a story while driving? I can’t! That’s awesome, don’t you think? My dad’s the reason Beowulf has such a heavily, intentionally biased of view in his own storytelling! Sometimes, you need to be biased. I am biased in favor of ideals. Ideally, yes, I would’ve been born in a body I could live in and a family that loved me; but I know I wasn’t. And who knows? Would I still be this compassionate had I not gone through all this pain? Or would I turn my eyes away from all the suffering in this world? My traumas didn’t make me a stronger person, but I am who am, and I’m proud of who I am, even if I have to hide who I am as much as possible at “home”. I can be more myself in a story.
“In life you must write your own story, or one will be written for you.”A.J. Garces, illustrator.
We’ve got a lot of storytelling to do. We need to lie to Chu as much as possible! He’s going from a world with zero people at all to a world with a bunch of different people in it! There’s a lot to catch him up on. And we are absolutely not telling him what actually happened between Mahal and Eru!!! He cries at ghost-type Pokémon, who knows what he’ll do if he encounters a ghost-type person?!Continue reading “Muindyr”
