Hello, hello! Sylph Dancer here! Welcome to my profile!

Hi, world! I'm Sylph Dancer. You can call me Sylph, Sylphie, or Sylph Dancer.

I know you're probably not into reading absurdly long profiles, so I'll just relate what's important for you to know about me. My favorite things that involve literature are fantasy, adventure, creativity, good character development, representation of marginalized orientations and ethnicities, and strong female characters. And romance.

I admit that sometimes I have a hard time enjoying the ones that don't exactly meet the standard of 'well-written', and I seriously dislike character-bashing. I tend to enjoy fanfics with diverse ethnicities, genders, body types, romantic orientations and sexualities as well as strong female characters.

If I've favorited your work, I think you're an amazing writer and are deserving of great respect, and if I review your story, I either think the story is better than my own and deserves many reviews, or that you could use a little constructive criticism. If I seem like I'm doing something drastic, such as deleting a story, don't freak out. I've probably already given it lots of (rational) thought and was planning on doing so anyways and therefore have some sort of a plan. Don't be surprised if you read my work once, go back later to read it again, and find it changed. I probably did the same thing you did and thought, "Oh, gods, this sucks, I wouldn't waste my time reading this rag" and fix it. And then leave it for a while and then look back, think the exact same thing and fix it again.

No one likes trying to dig through the crap fan fictions to find the good ones. Help me give you awesome fan fictions. Please review my stories. And while praise does make me happy, constructive criticism is the most useful. (Hint hint hint.)

Oh, yeah. And I have a potty mouth. And I kinda have a lot of kinks that aren't necessarily close to vanilla standard. And activism and social justice tend to be pretty strong factors in my life. That shows up in my writing a lot. Sorry.

You know, somehow, this profile ended up being a lot longer than I originally intended for it to be … Huh.

Ahem. Anyways …

If you have any questions about my writing or about my stories, suggestions or ideas, feel free to PM me. Also, all reviews including but not limited to praise and (especially) constructive criticisms are welcomed, even flames. (You're giving me more reviews anyways, right?)

No, I don't have a Tumblr account. If I did, I'd lose most of my already failing productivity. I won't do that to you guys, my grades, or my fellow activists.

Imagine a wall full of circular holes that circles can keep walking in and out of with no difficulty.

Now imagine that the triangles manage to get the resources together, after years of not being able to fit through the circle’s holes, to drill a single triangle space into the wall.

Now imagine that the circle — who previously supported the triangle’s efforts because they are well-rounded (har) and value equality — comes along and sees the construction project. But instead of being happy, they get angry.

“Well, I won’t be able to fit through your hole!!!!” the circle cries. “I helped you get the drill! Make it fit me too!!!!” the circle demands.

The triangles, barely holding it together enough to get a triangle hole together, stare at the circle in confusion.

“You have all the holes you need,” the triangles explain. “This is for us. You don’t need to fit through our hole, too.”


“It’s not your drill, it’s our drill. You helped us get it, because you said you cared.”


“Why is it up to us, the small group that has never been able to fit through the wall at all, to make a hole everyone can use? Why isn’t it up to you, the people who have been able to cross back and forth at will for years? We just want to see the other side; why are you yelling at us?”


“You are interfering with our project and asking us to comfort you while we’re trying to make progress. Please leave.”

“I’m going to tell everyone about this,” the circle warns. “Nobody will support you now.”

“Apparently nobody ever did,” the triangles sigh, getting back to work.

This is privilege. This is what it feels like to the LGBT community when straight people demand "straight pride", when people insist upon saying "All Lives Matter" instead of "Black Lives Matter", when people try to say "Not All Men" when feminists try to say "Yes All Women". This is what it feels like when rich or middle-class people tell poorer folks that they have to "earn their way instead of being lazy".

This is what being "race-blind" is, what "equality not feminism" is, what it means to have straight people demand that the A in LGBTQIA should stand for "Ally" instead of "Asexual" and "Aromantic". You don't get a cookie for being a decent human being.

The point of being an "ally" is to understand and help an oppressed group achieve equal rights, not force yourself into a group you're not actually a part of, or act as if you fully understand their struggles and can speak for everyone, or force yourself into the center of attention. If you are an ally, you realize that the people you are supporting do not receive the same privileges, and that their struggles, their attempts for gaining equality, their triumphs, are not. About. You.

Instructions For A Bad Day
By Shane Koyczan

There will be bad days.
Be calm.
Loosen your grip, opening each palm slowly now.
Let go.

Be confident.
Know that now is only a moment,
and that if today is as bad as it gets,
understand that by tomorrow,
today will have ended.

Be gracious.
Accept each extended hand offered to pull you back
from the somewhere you cannot escape.

Be diligent.
Scrape the gray sky clean.
Realize every dark cloud is a smoke screen meant to blind us from the truth,
and the truth is whether we see them or not,
the sun and moon are still there, and
there is light.

Be forthright.
Despite your instinct to say
"it's alright, I'm okay"
be honest.
Say how you feel without fear or guilt, without remorse or complexity.
Be lucid in your explanation, be sterling in your repose.

If you think for one second no one knows what you've been going through,
be accepting of the fact that you are wrong
that the long drawn and heavy breaths of despair have at times been felt by everyone—
that pain is part of the human condition
and that alone makes you a legion.

We hungry underdogs,
we risers with dawn,
we dissmissers of odds,
we pressers of on.
We will station ourselves to the calm,
we will hold ourselves to the steady.
Be ready, player one.

Life is going to come at you armed with hard times and tough choices.
Your voice is your weapon, your thoughts ammunition
There are no free extra men;
be aware that in the instant now passes,
it exists now as then.

So be a mirror reflecting yourself back, and remembering the times when you thought
all of this was too hard and you'd never make it through.
Remember the times you could have pressed
but you hit continue.

Be forgiving.
Living with the burden of anger is not living.
Giving your focus to wrath will leave your entire self absent of what you need.
Love and hate are beasts
and the one that grows is the one you feed.

Be persistent.
Be the weed growing through the cracks in the cement.
—because it doesn't know
it's not supposed to grow there.

Be resolute.
Declare what you accept as true in a way that envisions the resolve with which you accept it.
If you are having a good day,
be considerate.
A simple smile could be the first-aid kit that someone has been looking for.
If you believe with absolute honesty that
you're doing everything you can,
do more.

There will be bad days.
Times when the world weighs on you for so long
it leaves you looking for an easy way out.
There will be moments when the drought of joy seems unending.
Instances spent pretending that everything is alright when it so clearly is not.

Check your blind spot.
See that love is still there.
Be patient.
Every nightmare has a beginning, but every bad day has an end.
Ignore what others have called you.
I am calling you friend.

Make us comprehend the urgency of your crisis.
Silence left to its own devices breeds silence,
so speak and be heard.
One word after the next, express yourself and put your life in the context—
if you find that no one is listening,
be loud.

Make noise.
Stand in poise and be open.
Hope in these situations is not enough, and you will need someone to lean on.
In the unlikely event that you have no one,
look again.

Everyone is blessed with the ability to listen.
The deaf will hear you with their eyes. The blind will see you with their hands.
Let your heart fill their news-stands,
Let them read all about it.

Admit to the bad days, the impossible nights.
Listen to the insights of those who have been there, but come back.
They will tell you;
you can stack misery, you can pack despair, you can even wear your sorrow
– but come tomorrow, you must change your clothes.

Everyone knows pain.
We are not meant to carry it forever.
We were never meant to hold it so closely, so be
certain in the belief that what pain belongs to now
will belong soon to then.

That when someone asks you how was your day,
realize that for some of us, it's the only way we know how to say—

Be calm.
Loosen your grip, opening each palm slowly now.
Let go.

As some of you know, I have a very liberal standpoint on different current events and taboo topics, such as racism, protests in the U.S. on police brutality, sexism, reproductive rights, and queerphobia. I haven't gotten any comments on it yet, but I also understand that for some, this may be tiring or seem accusing or bitter and unfounded.

One of the biggest arguments, for example, is that talking about inequality makes us unequal, and brings up anger and prejudice between different groups of people. For example, the #YesAllWomen tag talking about sexism that women experience everyday was countered by the #NotAllMen tag, stating that "not all men are sexist". The ongoing argument about police brutality and corrupt police in the force (#BlackLivesMatter) is another excellent example.

Both sides bring up excellent points--yes, not all men treat women badly. Not all police officers are corrupt and unkind. Not everyone is a homophobe. Despite how accurate these arguments are, however, using them as a full counter against the argument of all women dealing with sexism is incorrect. Maybe not all men catcall women, but that doesn't erase the fact that too many women are harassed in the streets and no one says anything. Not all men, yes, but enough are.

I recognize that no group in its entirety is fully bad. That would be ridiculous. And I get that these conversations are uncomfortable to talk about and often feel accusing. But accusations is not what these movements are about. They are about bringing about understanding that no, not everyone is treated equally, and that there are better ways to go about it than pretending that they don't exist.

For example, I am pansexual. A lot of you don't know what that means, even if you do know what homosexual means--because it's a marginalized term. Even within the gay community, people like me are often told we "don't exist", that we're "looking for attention", or that we're just "special snowflakes". For those of you who are heterosexual, I'm guessing no one has ever told you that you couldn't possibly be heterosexual or tried to "convert" you. You don't necessarily notice people continuously using harmful words to describe people like me or use words like "gay" or "f*got" as an insult. You've never had to notice.

This is why we really do need to focus on inequality. Other people with privilege have the ability to step away from inequality, to pretend it's not real or that it doesn't exist as a way to solve it. I don't have that ability. While others can ignore the existence of transgender people until it affects them directly, I can't. I don't get to use the "right" bathroom--I don't even get a bathroom. I don't get to see other pansexuals on TV, and I have to listen to people tell me that it's because "there just aren't as many around as there are straight people", even though I'm pretty sure that pansexuals are more common than vampires, and vampires have whole series dedicated to them.

That's why it's not okay to tell people to stop doing things like "pulling the race card". To us, it's not a game. This isn't some contest we're trying to win. This is real life, and I don't get to just step away from a conversation and not have to be careful about who I come out to like my cisgender friends and family do. I can't make racist men with "yellow fever" stop sexually harassing me for no other reason than because I'm Asian, and I can't make people stop telling me that I should be "grateful for the attention", as if having people dehumanize and stereotype me for their own weird sexual fetishes is something I should enjoy. I can't make other students stop using "gay" and "queer" as an insult--literally. I've tried, and the same excuse of "I don't mean it like that" is used.

You don't say "that's so straight" or "you're such a heterosexual", because it was never considered weird or abnormal to be straight. You say "guys" as a gender-neutral term but not "gals" or "ladies", because to do so with a guy present means it's some weird "offense" to be called a lady but not to be referred to as a guy. The word "cracker" doesn't have centuries of oppression tied to it like the n word does, and just because African-Americans are reclaiming the word doesn't mean you get to use it for fun.

We don't get to "solve" the problem by pretending it doesn't exist, and we don't get to say and do racist or prejudiced things and act as if they don't have centuries worth of oppression and hate tied to them that bleeds into modern society. If we pretend it doesn't exist, that's allowing the conversation to end, and if it ends, then we don't get to say anything more about the struggles we face on a daily basis. Not talking about racism in the police force does nothing to solve that racism. Not talking about the wage gap won't make it close up. If someone tells you that you hurt them emotionally, you don't get to tell them that you didn't because you can't see the pain.

If we really want to make the world a more equal place, we have to stop the "I'm sorry you're offended" narrative. I can completely understand why people usually react this way. It’s because no one wants to be the bad guy. If you get called out on doing something that’s oppressing another group of people, well that’s bad and no one wants to be bad. But instead of taking responsibility for your actions, you’re putting the blame on the other person and saying that “it’s your fault that you’re offended,” not that you're sorry for doing something that offended them.

Just because offending someone wasn't your intent doesn't change the outcome of the situation. Like I always say, if you stepped on someone's toe and broke it, telling them that you didn't mean to break their toe isn't going to magically fix the damn toe.

Inequality is not a black and white matter. It's so much more complicated than that, and I know that it's difficult to even think about such a concept, because we're so surrounded by the idea that it disappeared when Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream. But it's not that simple. And if you really want the conversation to end, you need to be willing to listen. These problems aren't going to disappear just because we refuse to talk about it--it will just perpetuate the problem.

Don’t just say it – do it. Remember that actions speak louder than words. And you can say sorry or deny that you did anything offensive ‘til the cows come home, but if you keep engaging in that sort of behavior, or saying those sort of things, then you're not allowing for marginalized and oppressed groups to speak out against the oppression that you never had to experience or think about. Just because you didn't experience something doesn't mean it doesn't exist. We need to become better allies to different communities, and while that's tough, it will lead to better understanding between communities.

Hope that explained my perspective on the matter. Cheers, everyone.
