So today I had a huge fight with my boyfriend about racism and sexist, told my parents and my best female friend about my sexuality which went really well (even though my dad said I should be careful whom I tell about it) and watched the end of Doctor Who season 4 and somehow I just really feel very alive right now.
I feel honest and sad and exited, relieved and free and happy and feeling all this makes me feel so human and I’m really happy to be one.

Simon is an amazing actor. How else do you think it was so easy for him to sneak into such a high-security school? All he had to do was tell the administrators that he was a Wendigo. He had heard stories from his father before, so he had a basic understanding of the behavior and mannerisms, but up until now they were all just folk tales. It’s not like the administrators were going to make him prove it, anyway. He is extremely talented and deceptive; Making anyone believe anything is the simplest task. It’s not an issue, but it is definitely a habit—a skill, if you would. He has loads of friends who think they’re the only ones that Simon can’t trick, but they’re very wrong. None of them have any idea what he truly is. However, like everything, it will all come out in the end.
Simon suffers from chronic depression, also known as Dysthymia. It eats away at his mind and it is rare that he ever feels good about himself. Of course, since he is such a great actor, he is able to hide this from everyone else. The only time he lets his distress show through is when he’s alone. He cannot have the others notice his weakness, his pain—at least, not if he wanted to continue to claim to be a Wendigo. Although, sometimes he wishes that someone, anyone would notice the pain that he’s in. It’s a natural ache, or that’s what he tells himself, but he truly feels like it would be his downfall. Every time he fakes a smile or a laugh, he’s silently pleading for help, but no one notices—as they shouldn’t—and he’s left alone.
