UNUSUAL HOARD commission for mark, a whole bunch of sleepy tiny kitties
't2' is short for 'team [of] 2' which is a translation of 'team futari,' which is written as 'チーム２人' in japanese. 'チーム２人' comes from the scene where aoyagi says (from memory here sorry) 'instead of just one person, how about two' to teshima at their lowest. this is when they become a team.
japanese fans use variations of team 2, t2, and チーム２人 to refer to them. even official merch uses チーム2人 as you can see from this namja town flag.

Requested by anon—I hope it’s close enough to what you had in mind!
Naruko persuades Imaizumi to come along for Onoda’s first shopping trip to get dresses, skirts, etc. Antics, cuteness, and cuddling ensue.
the thing about body positivity is that sometimes there is a tendency to compliment and act positively towards fat people while tearing down skinny people
and on the surface you might think “well it’s just like reverse racism or misandry” but really it’s not because you are overwhelmingly talking about thin girls
girls are already subject to misogyny in society and are super conscious of the way they look, and the result of that is that even girls who most people would consider to be thin and therefore benefit from thin privilege still think of their own body very negatively and have low self esteem. by attacking thin girls, you’re still attacking people with low self esteem who are already under attack by society simply because they are girls
that’s why true body positivity, body positivity that is accepting of all body shapes and sizes and that promotes loving yourself the way you are, is the very best way to help people
do fat people need that body positivity more than thin people (as a whole)? yes, because they are the ones who are being oppressed in this particular situation. but that doesn’t mean you should be using it as an excuse to make fun of girls and women who already have it tough

for tonight’s “fantasy” theme i drew Makishima as a witch and Tadokoro as a bear, because obviously i am just goddamn fantastic at drawing both of those things
Makishima is not going to misgender her friends in English, no matter how annoying they are when she asks for their preferences.
(Spoilers for what happens to Makishima after the Interhigh, but does NOT spoil the winners or anything like that!)
1389 words of trans nerds on facebook testing maki’s patience. thanks pissfreak for the art!!!! everyone in this fic is trans. except kinjou. his time will come
LOOK AT MY FIC ヽ(^。^)ノ
favourite heroines: hajime ichinose
this is my best work
I’m reaaaaally glad I follow the people I do and am friends with the people I’m friends with because enough people said “you can be trans and not be dysphoric” enough times that it finally stuck and made me think of applying that statement to myself
and I def still feel like a baby trans but it’s already making me feel better about myself in a lot of ways
thank you for demonstrating why people should write characters that use ‘it’ in fiction, including fanfics, so that people get that some people self-identify that way and it’s not a big deal! because it’s uncommon enough that friends of mine who use ‘it’ get attacked for their choices by people ostensibly DEFENDING trans people. stop. some people choose ‘it’ because nothing else fits. some people feel dehumanized already. it’s none of your business why, respect those choices
either respect someone’s it pronouns or don’t talk about it
