interview by kiki nicole
Arya Stark or Sansa Stark?
Omg starting off with the controversial question I see... lol I will definitely choose Arya Stark here.
Where do you breathe easiest?
Laying in my girlfriend’s arms. I am Very Gay.
What type of flower are you?
I'm more like bamboo than any flower tbh. Or maybe an aquatic plant. Yeah, I would def be seaweed.
You get to rewrite any movie or tv show of your choice. What is it? What do you do differently?
I would rewrite Avatar the Last Airbender so that Zutara was cannon, Suki falls for someone that isn't a misogynist and most importantly that The Puppetmaster and Gran-Gran would reunite in the Southern Water Tribe and live out their twilight years as the south pole's resident lesbians. (I am Convinced that Gran-Gran marrying Pakku is one of the Worst decisions in the History of Fiction that show deserved better.)
Favorite low-energy meal:
Fried Cauliflower sandwich.
Who is the best girlfriend, the moon or the sun?
There is no good way to answer this question. Someone will always get their feelings hurt. Every gf is different and important in their own ways and the way we love them/the way they love us back is as special and good as they are. No need for rankings.
3 things to hold on to & why?
My hair (my ancestors live with me there), my chosen family (I get heavn through my people), my poems (the girls-to-come get a how-to guide for finding heavn when I tell those stories, so I speak).
If you could become a Bender of any concept or abstract idea, what would you master?
Bend the concept of family? I guess? Make it less white and monogamous and... miserable lol.
What or who is your art invoking?
My black trans lesbian family that lived happily before colonization and the black trans lesbian family that will live happily after me and after colonization is stopped.
Tell us your origin myth in 5 words or less.
