Describing gender as a spectrum implies that there are people whose gender cannot correctly be displayed in digital media because it falls outside the RGB colour gamut.

“Transcicada” is a portmanteau of trans- and cicada, in reference to the insect’s transition from its shell.

Proposal to insist on using “self-made man” as slang for transition to the point that rich people stop using it to describe (lie) about how they got rich.
I like queer slang and I hate rich people claiming they got there through hard work when it was really taking advantage of others.

Aren’t You A Little Too Old For Birthdays???
It’s funny
Because hyphens
Subtract numbers, yet add words
*Swings sword sing-songily*
*Shakes shoulders, haughtily*
A year later
And I’m still writing nerdy maths poems
Nothing’s changed
Except we’ve gone around the sun and come back again, alone
Try to dig my heels in
Prevent the deletions
Bring you back
Remove the spaces
To clip us at the hip
Unless I was just another number
Nothing hardly changes anything
When what you want
Is 9,246 miles away

Welcome to the Traphouse 
A WordPlay 5.0 Series by jaerie 
It was social media success that brought them all to move into this six bedroom gated mansion that had already been affectionately dubbed The Traphouse with a pool and enough space for all the antics they were sure to get up to.
Being a Viner himself, Harry had known all the guys for a long time. There were a lot of million plus follower creators that Harry had come to know during the app’s peak. Vine for reVine had initially started their relationships and running in the same circles had them bumping into each other at events and even meeting up for a collab or two here and there. Harry deciding to move to LA had been perfect timing for him to be roped into this project that was only just beginning.
They’d come together and they were all on the same page. They would treat the house as a set, all of them filming their videos both together and on their own. It was a social experiment that was already proving successful. With only tweets and Instagram posts about the house and roommates, Harry’s following had already started to grow. It was an exciting time for all of them and Harry was lucky enough to be right in the middle of it.
One house, five YouTubers, and the unexpected results.
Introduction
Week One - Struggle 
Week Two - Reduce
Week Three - Divide 
Week Four - Rise
Week Five - Sketch
Conclusion
Now complete as of August 21!
Please check out @wordplayfics​ for five years worth of fics!

Let’s play a game
What is a totally non-food-related thing that makes you think of food. Bonus points if medical/pathological.
Claudication makes me think of clotted cream. Because they sound similar.
My cardiovascular final is tomorrow and I’m desperately trying to deny how much studying I still need to do.

Harry/Louis | One-Shot | Meet cute
Dating hasn’t really been very easy for Harry lately, not ever since he moved to London earlier in the year for his job. He’s had terrible luck with online dating and is too dedicated to his current projects at work to make time to go out to the bars and try to socialize more than once every few weeks.
aka, Harry ends up at speed-dating to get his friend off his back. He has a better night than expected.
Written for Week 1 of @wordplayfics! The prompt word for this week was “struggle”. (Something I definitely did when trying to decide what to write!)

Etymology is such a useful and lifesaving class; you know all sorts of loopholes when you understand the history of words. After all, "The pen is mightier than the sword." Or I guess in this case the word is mightier than that guy.

I love the “high-ranking military title plus oddly specific crime” villain naming format. Stuff like “General Manslaughter” – like, what is the implicit hierarchy here? Is there also a Captain Aggravated Assault? A Second Lieutenant Reckless Endangerment? A Private Civil Liability?

The “Rescue” archetype seems to be a pun on 急 kyuu (”sudden, urgent”) and きゅうきゅうkyuukyuu, which can either mean “first aid” or be an onomatopoeia for squeaking.
This kyuu sound can be found in the second syllable of “Rescue,” and is symbolized by the large “Q” symbol on the Rescue Squad’s helmets.

I don’t know if this was obvious to everyone else, but the title Thai Feud is likely meant to be a pun on Thai Food, as it’s apparently set up to be another episode about Anne cooking Thai cuisine, this time with her parents and their food truck involved!

Time Will Explain

“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a failed popstar turned songwriter in possession of a decent career, must be in want of a big hit.”
Louis' career ended when he was outed in The Sun. His new songwriting career is doing well, but it could do so much better if he wrote a hit with Harry Styles. What he hadn't figured into it was how much of a struggle it would be to figure out exactly who Harry Styles actually was.

Assay Anything
Rubbish bins overflowing
No slowing the derailed train
Smear campaigns launched inanely
Canceled programs only to show
More of the same under a new name
Bunny ear antenna picking up
Lamebrains braying, spraying
Spittle and sputum downplaying
The downgrades while upgrading
Games that give everything away
If players wake before taken
To task, made to pay
It's okay it's all ingrained
Trained in this from an early age
To take it
To the grave
