plurality view of pre-transition self
E: everybody who sees a photo of the draugr says "this could be your brother, but def doesn't look like you anymore"
E: I know people are making an effort to be affirming but it's kind of interesting how every time it's always, specifically, "brother".
R: we do call one another "sister", but it's more in the political way we call every transfeminine person "sister".
E: I can't help but think of the draugr as our late brother, though.
E: like if he was a person in a different body altogether, I can very easily image we relating in sibling dynamics
E: I see him sitting on the sofa playing games and I'm bringing cookies on condition he will wash the dishes and we tease one another, that kind of thing.
R: only he wouldn't actually like that, isn't it. that other-body brother is a mirror-shade, an alternate reality. the one from this reality did not like existing in that body or that self.
R: our brother fought for us, and now he rests beneath the sea. that's all he ever wanted.
E: RIP niichan.
