I'm Bucky Grant, and I want to imagine a better world with the queerest and coolest people, and then make it with them.

I use he/hir/hirs and they/them/theirs pronouns, and I'm in my mid twenties. I identify as butch and transgender.

what does that mean?

Butch

There are a few definitions of the word as it stands in our current culture, but I specifically use the word butch as part of my gender identity. I consider myself to be nonbinary, and to be aligned with a kind of "masculine womanhood" that cishet women do not experience. I do identify as a lesbian as well, encompassing my love for and attraction to women and nonbinary people.
My identity has been heavily influenced by embracing my sapphic identity and reading works by other butches, most notably Leslie Feinberg. Hir novel Stone Butch Blues is a difficult but necessary read for transgender people, in my humble opinion.

Transgender

I do not identify with the gender I was assigned at birth. That's really all it takes to be transgender in my opinion. Find further information here.
I've also been taking testosterone since 2016. I consider my hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to be part of my mental health treatment, specifically for gender dysphoria. That being said, HRT or any form of medical transition are not required to identify as transgender.

writing

I really like writing gay and fluffy stuff! I'm particularly interested in transgender identity, found family, and good endings.

Most of my writing is Homestuck fanfiction, but you can find some other fandoms sprinkled in. Find descriptions of individual pieces sorted by completed works and works in progress.

Read all my fanfiction at my Archive of our Own works page. Writing commission rates are on my commissions page. Writing commissions are for the act of writing only. I do not own any of the characters in my fanworks.

This list is up-to-date with my fics from 2020 onwards.
