A very interesting passage from a very interesting science-fiction novel, Ursula Le Guin’s The Left Hand of Darkness.  It’s about a race of androgynes, who can physically transition between male and female.

"ARE YOU A BOY? OR A GIRL?"

Everyone wants to know, but sometimes there isn’t even an answer.
Androgyny in Animation features all sorts of gender-bending characters from anime and games and how they can inspire critical thinking about gender in the real world.

Haha. Not sure if Jamie is:
     a.  obnoxiously scoffing at the others’ antics from a haughtily high vantage point,
     b.  skeptically considering the divine status of the angel thing to the right,
     c.  competitively glaring at Wriggle for having something shinier than Jamie’s own Musical Note,
or  d.  bitterly sulking over being placed in the “chibi” corner.
I was going for c., but it’s probably all of the above. Even with such a big thing in common, there’s no way Jamie’d get along with anyone~.

If you could have one former Harvest Moon character cameo, who would you pick?

I’ve gotta go with the painfully obvious… Jamie.

:O  I WANNA KNOW WHO DID THIS.

IT’S WONDERFUL.  I LOVE IT A LOT.

I literally did come up with this for the sheer sake of putting Jamie in the center, then changed my mind and made it anime-only which was a shame.  But what a great idea to make one just for the HM series.  It really is more diverse in terms of gender expressions than one might initially think!  Doing these sorts of charts per individual series should totally become a thing.  …Although I’m guessing not a lot of series will have true neutrals, haha~.

…But it’s a custom, of course, so not for sale. D:

Believe me, I did ask, desperately, in horribly broken Japanese. This amazing artist used to run a Japanese blog outside of Tumblr, where there were several other pics of this, but sadly that site returns an error now… The second there’s a petition for official figures like this, sign me up. If I could magically wish for any one item in the world I WOULD LITERALLY WISH FOR AN EXACT REPLICA OF THIS RIGHT HERE.

SYNESTHESIA

A union of senses:  sound, sight, feeling.

That’s what I think the experience of collecting Musical Notes is — and, though I’m not great at expressing it in writing, it’s a really awesome thing to imagine isn’t it…?

Jamie’s Animals

What if the Goddess in MM got her purple hair from Jamie, and not the other way around?

asa-turney:

…is it valid to assume that, as has been said of some legendary Pokémon, the Harvest Goddess is literally a legend come to life?

Across the series’s many worlds, “Goddess” is omnipresent — but is not necessarily the same entity with the same experiences and memories.  Why not?  Well, like nuanced differences of religions in real life, each village would have a different traditional image of her, and maybe her existence in each game reflects the given village’s respective legends.  …Of course this means that if no one believes at all, she will not exist at all.  (Cue Magical Melody.)

It also means that, with Alisa’s belief, I bet she could shoot lasers from her eyes if she tried hard enough.  Get with it, Goddess.  Live up to your believers’ image.

Concise version for my main, but this blog gets the unnecessarily elaborate rambles, heh.  Read more and it becomes about Jamie (obviously).
