It's been ages since I've done one of these! Got this from :iconshimmerwolfarts:

1. what’s your gender? 
I'm agender!

2. what are your pronouns?
they/them

3. is your family accepting?
Surprisingly, my immediate family appear to be pretty accepting. Though since I'm a bit estranged from them, I haven't really had opportunities to see if they would get defensive if I tried to correct any misgendering.

4. what do you wish you could tell your past self?
I'd tell them that they shouldn't be so focused on fitting to female gender standards (because I was miserable while trying to do so and still only did it half-assed), and that people won't comment about it as much as I thought they would (and more importantly, their comments don't matter). Maybe introducing them to the concept that gender in a social construct and giving an introduction to the concept of nonbinary genders. But similarly, I want to make a point in saying that when it comes to identity, you make it what you want, and not to try to enforce that people follow a specific standard just to be something. We kinda already deal with enough of that in people enforcing what male/female is.

5. what is your sexuality?
panromantic asexual to be more concise, though I have greysexual and demisexual aspects too. I could further define my asexuality, but I'd rather *not* get into the specifics of my sexual attraction.

6. favorite color
It's hard to pick just one favorite! I'll say indigo, but I like blues, greens, purples, and greys the most.

7. sun gay or moon gay?
I tried to look this up, and none of the results gave a good definition!

8. when did you find out your sexuality?
My sexuality I found out toward the middle-end of college (at about 22-23 years old), my gender before this (about 20-21).

9. how was your day? 
Kind of just began, but I'd say it's starting off good.

10. do you have any gay friends?
I have quite a number of friends across the entirety of LGBT+, primarily trans friends (binary and nonbinary), and other LGB friends as well - and people who are both!

11. what’s your favorite hobby?
I'm on deviantart, so drawing is definitely one of them. Video games are another huge hobby of mine.

12. who’s the best gay icon in your opinion
I don't really have much in way of personal LGBT+ icons, but I'll go with Audre Lorde and Laverne Cox.

13. which pride flags do you like the most design/color wise?
The rainbow flag, the genderqueer flag, demigender flags (I'm agender and not demigendered, but I've got a thing for greys paired with an accenting color). The yellow and purple intersex flag is kinda neat too.

14. are you openly out?
Errr, on paper, yes. I am out to most people I actually communicate with (and some where communication is rare), and anyone who cared to look me up as my online persona or offline would be able to know my gender identity. But there are some people who don't know merely because I haven't told them yet, I don't know yet if they're safe to tell, or I know outright they will react badly. As for my sexual and romantic orientation, I feel it doesn't really matter enough to me to really come out about, though I might mention it if it's relevant to conversation.

15. are you comfortable with yourself?
I'm pretty comfortable with myself. Mentally, I feel stable in my gender identity. Physically, there's a few things I'd like to change, but it doesn't exactly haunt me every minute of every hour. T and top surgery would be nice. The things that truly make me uncomfortable is the societal outlook on trans and nonbinary people, which are big motivators for much of my dysphoria in the first place. But I can't guarantee I can change people, and I certainly can't change the whole of society and culture.

16. bottom or top?
I'll refer back to the part where I said that I'm not getting specific on how my sexual attraction manifests.

17. femme or butch?
Why not both? Though the way I see it as a nonbinary person, can't I just be a lovely androgynous person?

18. do you bind?
Yes, but not often. Mostly for special occasions, when I just wanna look good, or when I'm feeling particularly upset or dysphoric and need something to boost my self esteem.

19. do you shave?
Not as frequently as I used to. That was the first thing that I had to slowly come to grips with was the fact that I didn't have to shave. Now I'm at a point where I'm not nearly as self-conscious about body hair or facial hair as I used to be, which is great. I will shave if I feel like it or need to for physical comfort though.

20. if you could date anyone you wanted, who would it be?
I'm kinda already committed to somebody else, but honestly my requirements involve being a decent human being and sharing a few interests.

21. do you have a partner (s)?
I do! It's this dead account! :icondirector-james:

22. describe your partner (s)?
We started dating back when I considered myself a straight cis tomboy, so he fit the bill of a straight cis guy.
But he's ambitious, sassy, loves video games and reading, and the biggest introvert who has ever leveled in charisma.

23. have you ever dated anyone of the same sex gender? (*cough*)
No for both sex or gender.

24. anyone of another sex gender? (*cough hack*)
Everyone I have experience with are cis men because that's what aligned with my identity at the time. x'D Then I started dating someone for 9 years and it's still going on. :u I will say I did have a mutual attraction with a friend who was a trans girl, and was kinda my first real crush in ages. It wasn't exactly a relationship but we sort of arranged something for a while.

25. pastel gay or goth gay
Yes.

26. favorite dad in dream daddies?
I have not got to play the game, but it's precious af and I'd kinda like to.

27. tell me a random fact about yourself?
I have a tendency to overshare, partly because I don't like to hide who I am, partly because fuck social norms, and partly because I really enjoy talking to people.

28. do you own any pride flags/merch?
I would love to get a few pride flags! I have some pride socks and buttons though, along with a couple other things.

29. have you ever been to a pride parade?
I've been to two, and one was in San Francisco! ^^

30. any advice to someone who isn’t out or who are exploring themselves?
I'd say that labels are optional, and that you don't have to stick to a label if you don't want to, and that labels aren't necessarily bad when used to describe an experience, but to not try to conform TO a label. They're meant to describe how you authentically feel, and aren't always a perfect fit 100% of the time, but you can always make your own label or have a slightly different meaning with your label than other people might have for it. Take a descriptivist rather than prescriptivist approach to labels, basically, and just focus on being your authentic self. If you want a label or don't want one, either is perfectly fine.

And yes I did feel the need to change "sex" to "gender", and my experiences aligned as such that my answer still worked for both. I realize this was probably written more in mind of LGB individuals rather than trans people, but I could write a whole thesis on why we take so much stock in someone's assignment at birth and presumed genitals when it comes to attraction and our own experiences, and the general implied cisnormitivity and heteronormativity regarding attraction to or by trans people. But that's for another day. For now, I just say "fuck off with your gender expectations" and that when it comes to identity, it should be more about moving toward our more authentic selves rather than trying to conform to a different standard that's easier. You shouldn't have to prove who you are to be yourself. We deal with enough gatekeeping from straight and cis people, we don't need it in our own communities.

And now, back to the regularly scheduled art! :U

Monarch Himutie Bust Shot

While I was doing face shots for other characters, this sort of made itself evident as a little pretty thing. Because I like experimental stuff, and age-changing can shake things up when you don’t know what to draw. So here’s Himutie a few years from now, looking a little more mature and regal!

I had a bit of fun with the outfit, where it sort of resembles a formal shirt and bowtie, along with the corset peeking from underneath, which retains some of the aesthetics of Himutie’s usual court gown. It was pointed out that they kinda look like a waiter this way, and honestly I don’t even mind. This is really cute and formal, and I can totally see Himutie getting into character for giggles.

Now the real question is how accurate will this look by the time they actually do get this age and take their reign as monarch. Will they have scars or injuries I didn’t draw here? Is there something already different that’s just not very noticeable? Is Himutie going to give up their life as royalty to pursue the humble life of a waiter the adventurer’s life, and that’s why they aren’t wearing a crown? Spoilers, I didn’t draw the crown because I was lazy and just like drawing the antennae, but we don’t know yet where Himutie’s life goes after the story, or during.

Feel free to pop a question, leave a comment, let me know what you think!

Young Augryn Outfits

This was going to be part of the rest of the Silverlyn Court dump, but I failed to have room when I goofed and turned a layer back on to realize two drawings were in the same spot. So I had to remove these ones. I didn’t want to expand and rearrange everything either because it’s annoying to even find a way to minimize dead space as it is without having to add more doodles and suddenly have like a whole strip of empty on the top or bottom.

Technical details aside, some more doodles of an Augryn that’s closer to Himutie’s age. I may have mentioned that despite that the monarch can’t come along for the journey and accompany the main cast, Himutie still has to call home every now and then. That, and I’m certain we’ll see more about the history of the country of Sillvensan and general bits that will be relevant to how Himutie’s character developed.

Regarding Augryn’s outfits, the left is what they’d typically wear outside the castle, while the right is a court gown they would have wore at the time. The hat remains (much like Himutie’s top hat) because hats are personal to surnialans (or at least ones of this region), and Augryn would not have been monarch yet. This does almost seem to give an implication that once one becomes the monarch in their culture, that they are no longer themselves, but “Monarch of Sillvensan”. Then again, other occupations would dictate use of protective headwear (like construction workers), but surnialans of this region also take their occupations very seriously. This could be an extension of that sentiment.

Though Augryn and other surnialans pictured previously are almost always clothed (Himutie being a common exception), clothing - especially more elaborate outfits - is commonly only worn by nobles and other people of higher status, while most surnialans may have some articles that relate to their work or for practicality like a toolbelt, vests, packs, etc. And of course, the hat.
