Step by step
We're still figuring things out, but we'll get there.
This was a quick one, I damn near forgot!
I'm new-ish to pride having been closeted throughout my teens; not for lack of support or safety, but rather internal conflicts. Even now I'm perennially shy about expressing my attraction to men as a man, and it's not info I tend to volunteer. So I am forever in AWE of anyone who has the strength to be seen, to be visible and vocal; even if it's just a badge, something small and easily missed by most. I can't express the camaraderie I feel every time.
Not to be dramatic or anything.
'Poor tact leading to accidental foot in mouth Taka' is one of my favourites (followed closely by 'unexpectedly competent Taka in an unusual field) and 'improper' to mean incorrect vs 'improper' to mean indecent is an easy mistake to get tripped up on.
Plus Taka espousing 'Uniform Policy' in a school that clearly authorises an insane amount of uniform customisation tickles me something fierce. There seem to be next to no actual rules in Hope's Peak but Taka'd be DAMNED if that stopped him enforcing some kind of order.
(additionally, looking up references for the hallways of the hellscape that is Hope's Peak was a JOURNEY. Bamboo corridor?? Bright red/green/purple lighting?? Reminded me of LCC which felt like a repurposed car park except with Hope's Peak it's a disused 80s strip club -in both cases, a nightmare to attend.)
