hello there new followers (⊙‿⊙✿)

thanks for following! FYI :  I tend to queue a lot of stuff like once a month or so and not post a lot in the meanwhile. Since teen Wolf just started again I’ll probably post a few thing of the new episodes each week, but it’ll all be tagged with “teen wolf spoilers”. Oh and in case you didn’t find this blog from my art blog, I do have one HERE. I’m also on twitter twice! If you wanna talk, my askbox is open! c: 

Again, thanks for following, I hope you’ll enjoy your stay here! 

The Changeling

My friend notenufcaffeine posted this image and did some break down on it. What caught my attention that I hadn’t noticed before was Malia and Liam- notice how their colors are basically reversed. Liam’s got blue with pink trim, Malia’s got pink with blue framing it.

She also caught how close their names are, again, basically the reverse of the other. 

Now, I’ve been saying since Sprayberry’s been cast that he’s actually Peter’s child. He looks just too close for him to be anything else. I believed Malia to be just a red herring. A decoy to throw the viewers off. Due to Malia’s nature, she’s going to take advantage of the situation, but I never figured it was anything more than dumb luck and simple misunderstanding.

And then I saw this picture and it suddenly clicked. She’s not just accidentally the inverse of Liam. It’s diliberate. They are plain and simple too close, and the costuming is calling our attention too it.

Liam is the lost child, who will be found. The pictures of him at the Hale house ruin’s assure me that his parentage will be uncovered. But then what is Malia?

I mean, yes, trickster- got that memo. But it’s more than that.  She’s the ‘other’. She’s almost a perfect mirror image. Female to male. front to back, pink to blue. And that kind of symmetry doesn’t just happen.

So, immediately, my mind goes to myths and legends, because, it’s Teen Wolf after all. And what do we call a mirrored replacement for a lost child? One that is the same, and yet NOT the same? 

We call that a changeling. A creature of magic. A Fae or fairy, who’s possibly under an illustion, for what is ‘different’ looks that ‘same’. This is deep magic, some of the oldest stories that man has told man. This is taking a stranger into your midst, giving it shelter and nourishing it, letting it have access to you and all your secrets. This is how the fairies might learn your true name and gain power over you- all in the guise of a harmless child.

Now, a Banshee is a fairy too. In fact, the ‘shee’ in it’s name is actually ‘Shea’, the word the Celts used to name the fae. So we have fairy in conflict with fairy. Magic against magic- and isn’t it interesting that the storyline as it’s been presented so far, has Malia going after Stiles- the boy with the Spark. I do believe Lydia will be fighting for Stiles, not as his lover, but as his sister- but there will be a fight.

And why? That’s the third mystery- What is Stiles? What is his Spark? His light? The light that drew the Nogitsune to take him, in the face of a whole stable of powerful supernatural beings? Stiles is much more than he appears, and at least Derek Hale and Deaton have figured this out. (I’m willing to bet Malia knows too) cupidsbower had a great series of Metas over the weekend, breaking down exactly what happened to Derek and Stiles over season 3 and she spent a great deal of time focusing on that moment when the light suddenly went off for Derek and his hot blood ran cold- because something else was taking Stiles, and what Stiles has, away from him.

If this comes together as I’m thinking it will, Jeff has written a truly elegant conflict. He’s elevated a High School girl fight over a boy, and has turned it into a supernatural conflict of dire proportions. Light vs. Dark are fighting over possession of the Spark- one to build it up, the other to extingush it.

And don’t get too comfy with this status quo, because do you honestly think that after Derek spent all of 3B trying to free Stiles, he’s going to suddenly be willing to sit on the sidelines? 

We’ve always known that the show takes elements and develops them as themes over the course of the season- 1 was fire- quick, uncontrollable change. 2 was water- swiftly flowing emotions, tides raising and falling, flood waters destroying everything in its path and leaving destruction in its wake. Three was the Earth- all about who had power- strength- control. Who was literally the strongest, who could push or pull others to gain territory and land and the control that went with it.

Now we have a season of air. Air is knowledge. Its all about knowing, being about to see and perceive, and understand. And right away, we can tell that faces, and with that identities and names,  are going to be obscured. Secrets, and the power that they have, will be fought over. Because how can you know your friend from your foe if you can’t see their face? Secrets such as what is your name? Who where your parents? and Who do you need to stay sane? are all going to be crucial.

Suddenly Malia being a trickster in the hero’s midst makes perfect sense. The Boned-faced Berserkr that theonesarcasticchick and athenadark have identified could easily be Derek Hale (hidden faces, remember?) Liam being a lost Hale- they all fit together. Stiles, the boy without a true name and with a background of mystery. And oh yes, that other lost child, the nameless orphan- Jackson himself has even been in for a guess appearance.  

These are all little, random hints and unimportant whispered facts, but piled together, they paint a vivid picture. And if we peek far ahead, we can see that Season 5, when the element is Void, the big question will be ‘What is real?’

that makes sense with something about changelings, changelings were insatiable, they couldn’t be fed enough, they would literally eat their parents out of house and home, 

what did the trickster say was also hungry - coyote, raven and fox, he said they were all insatiable

to everyone asking “how does a closeted non passing trans man have male privilege?”

stfutransmisogynisttransfolks:

metapianycist:

male privilege is a complicated multifaceted phenomenon that is intertwined with many other privileges, so you should really be asking “what are the ways male privilege benefits closeted non passing trans men?”

and here are a few:

- when such a trans man is a target of misogyny, he does not experience it as an attack on something he *is*, because it is an attack on something he is *not*. it is very easy for such a trans man to have “but I’m not a woman” as his first thought in response to the misogyny. women can’t do that because it IS an attack on who they are.

- from the moment a trans man is aware that his gender identity is “man,” he does not see cultural messages about women as about him. this is the self-esteem part of male privilege. a trans man, regardless of passing status or how closeted he is in his daily business, does not experience cultural attacks on women’s self esteem as targeting him.

(anyone who wants to add to this list should add to it)

Also, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: THE INTERNET. If you don’t show any pictures of yourself and you say you’re a man online, boom — all-access pass to male privilege within that forum, no matter if everyone offline thinks you’re a cis woman.

cisnormative terminology that needs to stop

trans-carlos:

airagorncharda:

"female/male bodied": 

  • I’m a man, this is my body. It doesn’t matter what I was assigned at birth, this is my body and I am a man, and therefore this body is a man’s body, and therefore a male body
  • this is erasure of intersex people
  • this is erasure of nonbinary people
  • you don’t actually give a shit about gender, you’re asking about genitals, and unless you’re a doctor it’s none of your fucking business
  • and if you ARE a doctor, you need to figure your shit out so you don’t alienate your trans* patients and make them less likely to seek medical help due to dysphoria
  • the term you’re looking for is "assigned female/male at birth" or "afab/amab"

"born a man/woman" (also "used to be a woman/man"):

  • trans* people weren’t born cis people and then turned trans; just because it takes us a while to figure out who we are doesn’t mean we were ever somebody else
  • society is cisnormative, and lies to people, and pretends that trans* identities don’t exist and aren’t valid, telling trans* people that they are cis over and over again since birth like a mantra, so trans* people internalize that and believe it, until the evidence to the contrary piles up so high they can’t deny it anymore. That evidence has been piling up since birth; trans* people were never cis people
  • this is erasure of intersex people
  • this is erasure of nonbinary people
  • using these terms incorrectly makes it impossible to use them correctly for nonbinary people who DO identify as having started out as one thing and changed to something else
  • the term you’re looking for is “raised as a man/woman”

"male/female parts/genitalia":

  • again, I’m a man, these are my parts, therefor they are male parts, everybody needs to get the fuck over it
  • Yes, I have breasts and that gives me dysphoria and I want them removed, THANKS FOR REMINDING ME, but they are male breasts
  • Yes I have a vagina. Again, this gives me dysphoria, you are an asshole for reminding me. Again, it is a male vagina since I am a man
  • this is erasure of intersex people
  • this is erasure of nonbinary people
  • Unless you are a doctor my genitals are none of your fucking business
  • If you ARE a doctor, you need to start using medical terminology right now, because you’re a medical professional so I think you can use the word “penis” and “vagina” without melting like the Wicked Witch of the West
  • Doctors using this kind of incorrect terminology are alienating their trans* patients and making them less likely to seek medical help due to dysphoria. Trans* people already have ENOUGH trouble with getting medical help, don’t fuck it up more
  • the term you’re looking for is "penis/vagina/uterus/genitals" or "testes/ovaries" or (and this one’s easy) "chest"

"female/male hormones":

  • cis men and cis women BOTH have estrogen and progesterone and testosterone. Intersex people have all of these hormones naturally as well
  • there are cis women who have high levels of testosterone and low levels of estrogen and progesterone, and there are cis men with high levels of estrogen and progesterone and low levels of testosterone
  • these hormones are not specific to one sex or another, and DEFINITELY not specific to one gender or another
  • this term is hurtful not only to trans* people but also people with pcos, people who are undergoing or have gone through menopause, and other medical causes for variations in hormone levels
  • this is erasure of intersex people
  • this is erasure of nonbinary people
  • the terms you are looking for, shockingly enough, are "estrogen" "progesterone" and “testosterone”

All cis followers please read this.

don’t use senpai or kouhai jokingly, don’t use kawaii jokingly, don’t use suffixes or honorifics jokingly, just stop

Don’t turn japanese into a joke when it’s already mocked by racists, when diaspora japanese are already discouraged or ashamed to speak it due to racism

Don’t make fun of languages that are spoken by oppressed ethnicities and cultures, when they’re already systemically discouraged to speak it or even teach it to their children or grandchildren, because of racist pressure from western societies to assimilate

Don’t make fun of languages from cultures outside the western european language hegemony, because you just come off as a racist xenophobe

I never tell people off the bat that I’m gay. I wait. I wait until they say some homophobic shit and then I laugh and am like “you know I’m gay right?” And watch the look I terror on their face.
