Guess which nerd has a save file in Skyrim and is currently the Arch-Mage in the College of Winterhold
The sky was ablaze
Queer subtext in media is nice and all, but have you considered:
- Including actual queer characters instead of vague metaphors for queer characters.
Leonardo da Vinci
Red Chalk on paper | ca. 1512
attributed to Francesco Melzi
562 years ago today, Leonardo was born in Anchiano, a tiny settlement outside of Vinci, and it was recorded by his grandfather Antonio da Vinci:
"1452. There was born to me a grandson, the son of Ser Piero my son, on the 15th day of April, a Saturday, at the 3rd hour [10.30pm] of the night. He bears the name Lionardo."
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LEONARDO!
In the old days, all werewolves were male.
They burst through their bluejean clothing
as well as their own split skins,
exposed themselves in parks
howled at the moonshine.
Those things frat boys do.
Went too far with the pigtail yanking -
growled down into the pink and wriggling
females, who cried Wee wee
wee all the way to the bone.
Heck, it was only flirting,
plus a canid sense of fun:
See Jane run!
But now it’s different.
Now it’s a global threat.
Long-legged women sprint through ravines
in furry warm-ups, a pack of kinky
models in sado French Vogue getups
and airbrushed short-term memories,
bent on no-penalties rampage.
Look at their red-rimmed paws!
Look at their gnashing eyeballs!
Look at the backlit gauze
of their full-moon subversive haloes!
Hairy all over, this belle dame,
and it’s not a sweater.
O freedom, freedom and power!
they sing as they lope over bridges,
bums to the wind, ripping out throats
on footpaths, pissing off brokers.
Tomorrow they’ll be back
in their middle-management black
and Jimmy Choos
with hours they can’t account for
and first dates’ blood on the stairs.
They’ll make some calls: Goodbye.
It isn’t you. I can’t say why.
They’ll dream of sprouting tails
at sales meetings,
right in the audiovisuals.
They’ll have addictive hangovers
and ruined nails.

Hey what about Grantaire being loved by his friends.
- Grantaire laughing the most with Joly and Bossuet and regularly having “breakfast” (most time it should be lunch actually but they don’t care about that) with them.
- Talking about literally everything with…
tiny baby joly getting picked on in school because he’s small and he gets sick a lot
tiny baby joly not understanding why no one wants to play with him
tiny baby joly reading in a corner and playing by himself
tiny baby joly saying “well, no one wants to play with me so i sit here” when his teacher asks why he’s alone
Can Tinyjoly and Petitaire be friends, please.
tiny baby joly having a habit of sucking his thumb
tiny baby joly smiling real big when someone plays with him
tiny baby joly holding petitaire’s hand while they color
tiny baby joly hugging his best friend petitaire goodbye at the end of the day
BLOO BLOO BLOO BEST FRIENDS
tiny baby joly falling and scraping his knee and only stops crying when petitaire comes to hold his hand
tiny baby joly sharing all his comics with petitaire
tiny baby joly inviting petitaire over to his house because “mama makes real yummy cookies and you need cookies!”
tiny baby joly and petitaire friendship!!!
THIS IS IT THIS IS THE CANON THING
