I just read this this evening and loved it. Well done! I especially liked your use of colour-words throughout - always fresh and surprising and absolutely evocative. I also liked the way Roddy has to do so much thought-work to anticipate how others might react to them. Theirs isn't an experience I know directly (I'm cis), but it felt like a faithful reflection of the way I've heard trans and genderqueer people describe having to be constantly ready defend / justify their existence, and how exhausting it can get. Also another vote for how good your dialogue is - like [personal profile] asakiyume I heard it all in Irish tones just from the vocabulary and syntax you used.
