    1.

    When your best friend wants to go to David Hammond's stupid Halloween party even though you're both 7th graders and don't know anyone there. Also, you don't do parties.

    Summary

    [“Hunter, right?” She asks softly.

    “Yes, ma’am?”

    “May I take a look at your arm?”

    Hunter goes stiff. Camila didn’t think it was possible, but he manages to pull even farther away from her.

    “It’s fine. I’m fine. I’m so fine. I’m the most fine.”]

    Or,

    Hunter is not fine.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    There’s a decent span of time during which nobody cries. Maybe they’re too tired for it or maybe witches are just naturally decent at compartmentalizing—except not really, because one moment, Hunter is smoothing a bandage across Willow’s arm and the next she’s sobbing for her dads into his shoulder. For all that it’s awful to hear such a sweet kid cry like that, it’s worse to see the look of lost helplessness that makes a home on Hunter’s face. He hesitates, like he’s not sure if he’s allowed or if he’s just not sure he knows how, before looping his arms around her and pulling her close. It’s not a normal kind of comforting hug, not when Hunter wraps his body around her like a shield and settles the two of them on the pullout where the littlest boy is a small ball covered up with a blanket. He brackets himself between the two of them with surprising efficiency and that’s where he stays.

    In order: Hunter gets first aid, food, and sleep.

    (Camila- and Hunter-centric. Luz, Willow, and Gus are key and recurring characters. Vee and Amity pop up.)

    Summary

    There is a big difference between a trans man exploring his identity/sexuality through fanfiction, and a cis writer repeatedly misrepresenting what it means to be FTM. If you're a cis writer with the best of intentions, I hope these guidelines and resources will assist you in improving your treatment of trans men.

    Chapter 1: Writing Guide, FTM Anatomy.
    Chapter 2: Gallery of Trans Men.
    Chapter 3: FTM Media Recommendations.
    Chapter 4: Racism in Trans Headcanons.

     

    This guide was originally posted on my old account, which has since been deleted due to transphobic comments, including threats of violence. I have posted it again anyway, because I take this matter very seriously. Please do not repost, plagiarise, or copy this guide. But please feel free to share a link to it, so that cis authors can improve the way that they depict trans men.

     
    I have tagged fandoms and characters which are discussed in the guide, and are therefore relevant. If you encounter this guide while browsing those tags, that's why.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Generally speaking, follow these recommendations:

    RULE 1: Do your research.
    RULE 2: Write trans men the same way you write cis men.
    RULE 3: Consider how offensive it is to headcanon real-life cis men as trans.
    RULE 4: Ask yourself why you're including a trans man in your story.
    RULE 5: Respect dysphoric trans men.
    RULE 6: Handle pregnancy and menstruation carefully.
    RULE 7: Don't portray damaging stuff. Write chest binding responsibly.
    RULE 8: Forewarn the language you will use.

    Always think about the trans man who may be reading your story, and how you are making him feel.

    - Chapter 1: Writing Guide, FTM Anatomy

    If you're cis and you want to write a trans guy, please just read this first.
    If you're trans... hell, still read it. This is some excellent and affirming stuff.

    Summary

    He’s nine again– nine and new and knows so many things now so rather than try to go back–

    He thinks he has the chance to make things right.

    The bright blue trainers he puts on are a pair he hasn’t worn in forever, something he never thought about after he grew out of them (will grow out of?) a year from now, and sets off into the night and into the rain.

    The plan he has in his brain is not really a plan, moreso just a couple of half thrown ideas and maybe five steps into building back the life he had in the most painless way he could.

    Maybe, he thinks, maybe this plan can start off with the family he misses– because he’s sixty and most of them too injured or too old or too dead–

    Call him selfish but he misses them. He would rather find them than get himself back into that lonely existence he called a life before he woke up at nine.

    Dick makes do because that’s all he can do really.

    -🦇-

    Dick gets sent back in time, but don't worry, he's got this. (Probably)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Dick’s almost sixty years old in spirit, but damn him if he’s not going to enjoy this new chance of joining his brothers in playing pirates with him.

    He’s holding back the laughter of how fucking absurd everything is. Here is Dick Grayson– Nightwing– a world renowned hero– now holding up a stick and playing some fucking pirates.

    Fix it? Fix it.

    Summary

    Might be better if she tried saying it out loud, get a feeling for what it sounds like on the tongue.

    “D’you want to have a kid,” she says, into Kame House and the night.

    Doesn’t sound half bad.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Bulma’s lab has a certain characteristic to it indicative of the woman herself: cluttered but clean, chaotic with everything in its sensible place. 18, whose eyes were rewired for low-light sensitivity, notes the kitten sleeping in a corner atop a pile of lab coats. But she’s not here to talk about cats and fashion – nor is she here to talk about the person she used to be. She’s here to talk about who she is, and what she is capable of being.

    18 chooses, again and again.
