I always imagine them at nightfall, in the dusk of a slum or a vacant lot, in that long, quiet moment when things are gradually left alone, with their backs to the sunset, and when colors are like memories or premonitions of other colors. We must not be too prodigal with our angels; they are the last divinities we harbor, and they might fly away.

Where do YOU fall on the gender spectrum?


Where do YOU fall on the gender spectrum?

Be with someone that requires you to grow, makes you forget your problems, holds your hand, likes to kiss, appreciates art, and adores you.

One of the things that is really notable about Moscow and yet not many people outside Russia know about, is how gorgeous the Moscow metro is.

These photos? That’s what the metro stations look like.


They’re called the “People’s palaces of Moscow” or else “Underground palaces,” and they were built during the Soviet era on the Communist idea that art and beauty should belong to the people rather than only being available in the houses of nobles.

These photos show just some of the metro’s attractions. There are many more mosaics, statues, etc, placed throughout.

And the metro is always this clean.

In addition to being beautiful, it is incredibly functional. It gets you pretty much everywhere in Moscow, and the trains run at intervals of every three minutes or less. At peak times, they run every 90 seconds. You never have to worry about missing a train, because the next one will come almost immediately.

Not always of course. In the late evening or early morning hours, you may have to wait as long as five whole minutes for a train. They’re also super easy to navigate.

We Russians are pretty proud of our metro system.


so if anyone is going to fanexpo and you see me you should come say hi. i’m gonna be brienne of tarth (in black armor) tomorrow, makishima yuusuke from yowapeda saturday and enjolras sunday.


i talked to indy tonight and i think i wanna change my name??? i love caileigh a lot, i love the spelling and how confusing it is and how it looks when i write it, but when spoken it just sounds So Feminine. I don’t know how it comes off to others when written— if someone would like to tell me what they think of it, i would be very glad— but i’m not super comfortable with my first introductions to people, in person, involving giving such a feminine name.

and lo and behold, there’s a name i like that is very similar in origin and spelling difficulties and sound, but it’s Quite Male. It’s Cillian. I like it a lot but i’m not sure i would be much more comfortable with a name so male. i think i’d ideally like to use both interchangeably, but i don’t know how that would actually go down. and of course lazy cis people would just continue to call me Caileigh if given the option. So i don’t know what to do. And i’m not very genderfluid, so it’s not like some days i’m feeling more Cillian and some days more Caileigh, i’m just. both. if anyone has any experience with or thoughts on using multiple names at once, i’d be very glad to hear them.

requisite question mark?
