My thoughts on Autism SpeaksSomeone on tumblr the other day asked me what I thought of the organization Autism Speaks. Being someone on the autism spectrum they wanted to know if I had special insight to the matter. For those who don't know, I have Asperger's Syndrome (which is apparently classified as Autism Spectrum Disorder. It doesn't really matter, a change of the name doesn't change the condition all that much). If you want to specifically know what that's like, you can read what I wrote here: http://mrenter.deviantart.com/journal/Asperger-s-Syndrome-509576015My thoughts on Autism Speaks1 month ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
What I'm going to say about certain topics may get into the area of controversy (not about the organization. Most people in the autistic community, from my experience, do not like autism speaks) so you'll have to bear with me. But no I don't like this organization and I don't support what they do. They harm the lives of autistic people much more than they help and we're going to be talking about quite a few of their controversies. In fact, they've don

I wrote this story for you, but when I began it I had not realized that girls grow quicker than books. As a result you are already too old for fairy tales, and by the time it is printed and bound you will be older still. But some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again. You can then take it down from some upper shelf, dust it, and tell me what you think of it. I shall probably be too deaf to hear, and too old to understand a word you say, but I shall still be

She walked in the moonlight on the abandoned streets with a sheet of paper with instructions on it.
"Damn it how am I gonna open up this portal when all of these items seem to be impossible to get..."
The list had merely three things on it...
-A Portal Emerald
-A strand of Sonic's fur
-A bit of Sonic's blood.
She wasn't used to doing these things by herself, and she had no knowledge on how to get any of these items. In fact, she never knew there was ever such a thing called a Portal Emerald. Really no one had, they were extremely rare. They were used by the ancients before the Chaos Emeralds had ever come to be. To open up holes anywhere in the universe or in another universe and travel through them. They were extremely tricky to use to. With the Chaos Emeralds, only a certain few could use them, the ones who had the power of Chaos within them. Port

Nothing could describe what I was feeling right then. Terror, Deja Vu, nausea... My heart stopped, and one particular thought dominated my head. If I felt bad then, now I feel worse. Tears ran down my cheeks as I realized I had failed. The nightmare had come true, Amy was now Dan's. I ran to her, shaking her, trying everything to get her out of that trance... but nothing worked.
- "Please Amy, please wake up! I'm sorry..." I said.
On the night that we kissed, I'd promised her I would protect her, I gave her my word. And I failed, again. Though It didn't seem like Dan did anything ELSE with her, even if she had her most precious gift, she was now under his spell. He could do what he pleased with her. But I knew the worst was to come.

Sonic walked out of the bar still processing the whole conversation with Tina. He couldn't believe that Amy had went through all of that just for her to be with him. He felt like such a jerk for pushing her away from him all these years. He had to admit at first he thought that Amy was a little weak but strong willed, he had known her story from one point of perspective, but now that he knows a whole lot more about her, he wanted to just punch himself in the gut hard. He looked at his watch and saw that it was 7:30PM, he was about to call Amy but when he got out his phone he heard someone speak to him.
"Hey handsome." a female girl said.
Sonic looked up and smiled, Amy...
"Hey pretty lady. What are you doing out here all by yourself?" he said coolly.
She giggled and walked up to her blue boyfriend, and gave a sweet, tender kiss.

Es verstecken sich eine Menge Dinge in den Schatten, und konnte ich ahnen, dass ich soweit kommen würde? Ich war dir durch die Innenstadt gefolgt, und bis zu der Gegend, die hier als das Fort bekannt war, war es nicht weit.
Das Fort: Alte Festungsanlagen, um die sich so viele Legenden rankten. Eine geheime Stadt innerhalb der Stadt, die so gut zugänglich war, dennoch aber von kaum jemandem betreten wurde. Es war unheimlich dort, und was immer dort übrig geblieben war von den Dingen aus der Vergangenheit, war nur schwer greifbar.
Aber ich wollte dich, und darum war ich hinter dir her. Ich wusste noch nichts von unsichtbaren Dingen. Niemand hat mir jemals von unsichtbaren Dingen erzählt. Und

A Beasts Rose PrologueOnce upon a time, there was a young prince that lived in a shining castle. His name was Sonic, Sonic the hedgehog. He had many servants that did what he asked without question, the wishes that he wanted, and the respect from all the people that lived there. He had everything that his heart desired, but he was spoiled, selfish, and unkind. People warned him of the dangers that he was putting himself into, but he paid no head and continued his ways. One winter's night, however, that would all change.

The Eyes of the Painted HeiressOnce upon a time, in a country that was prosperous, and settled many miles away from the sea, an heiress to the throne was born. She was blessed in having soft hair of a deep brown colouring; tiny beauty marks that rarified her skin at intervals; and eyes the exact blue of the night sky, which had been bequeathed to her from her dear father, the King. She was both impressive and endearing, in the ways she moved and spoke as she grew older, so that the Queen esteemed her the prettiest rose of all the ages, no matter that she was still a long while away from blooming.The Eyes of the Painted Heiress3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

She was now standing close to the edge of the cliff, looking down at the sea water splashing near the edge.
She wanted to end her life, because there was no one to love. What's the point to live when someone you love doesn't love you back?
Amy was chasing her blue lover Sonic the Hedgehog on the shoreline of the beach.

"Leave me alone!" Sonic running away from her.
"SONIC!!" Amy pleaded for him to stop running.
He screeched to a halt, turning his back to Amy while she's catching her breath.

You just went by, across a place with a beautiful monument, a brave rider on a horse. I thought about taking a picture, but I may have lost you, and so I didn't. I could take a shot later.
I felt sad thinking about the moment I'd take my picture, forever the same sad feeling after love, when love has gone.
Across another street, another wide open place with a lot of cars, and you walked faster. We're almost there!

The shrill cry from the bright pink hedgehog pierced the very heavens and stopped all passerby to watch the spectacle. The girl, known as Amy, stomped the ground furiously beneath her red boots as if quashing an insignificant insect. Her fists shook with defeat and fury and her sweaty brow was creased to match the girl's gritted, frowning teeth.
The object of Amy's affection, that she had been chasing so desperately on that sunny afternoon, had given her a simple wave of his hand coupled with a "Catch ya later Ames!" before dashing off down the sidewalk. What infuriated the pink hedgehog the most was not that Sonic had allowed her to get very close to catching up to him. Nor was it that he had once again outran the poor girl. No, what boiled Amy's blood was his casual goodbye.
"'Catch ya later'?" Amy snorted. That was Sonic's trademark farewell to friends. Which meant that he viewed Amy as such. That was what annoyed her more than anything else. Every time S

Jocelyn's Transgal FAQ
A little while back, a good friend and watcher (and fellow transgirl), sent me a bunch of questions via Note, asking about my experiences, feelings and advice on certain trans-related things. She said she got a lot out of my answers, so I decided I wanted to post this and share it with other transgirls that might also potentially be able to gain something from this - especially those that are still pre-transition. I have, after all, spent a pretty long time in that agonizing pre-transition stage. Far longer than I wanted.
So I asked her permission to post this and here it is. Some questions have been removed from the original list 'cause my answers were either exceptionally personal or redundant. I also added a couple that different people had asked me shortly after doing this. If there are further questions - from anyone - I am not against editing this and adding more (it's already pretty long; what's more questions at

After what felt like forever, I found myself laying on my right side against a floor. Everything around me was white, like the flash, but not as bright. Slowly, I brought myself to my feet, and dusted myself off, then looked down, then up.
Where...where am I? I thought to myself. I looked at my hands, then down at my shoes. I was still me, normal.
I tried thinking back, what just happened...? I...Am I dead? I turned around and saw something in the distance. I'm not sure what it is, but start walking towards it. I could have ran, but..I didn't want to. I kept my pace slow, and tried to make out the figure in the distance.
