remember that one chapter in a feast for crows where asha just starts throwing shade left and right like
“I am unwed,”...
Done and done! And so far I’m doing better than expected in my grades, whoo.
4: 3 things I love
Cuddles, pretty arts, sleeping
11: What do I miss
I used to play so many games when I was a kid. I really should turn them into kid’s books or something, they were so much fun.
15: Favourite quote
And another one!
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.” Declaration of Independence, whooo.
28: Favourite movie
Don’t have an overarching favorite, so let’s go with The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
29: Favourite song
Again, no overarching favorite, so let’s go with “Turn Soonest to the Sea” by Protest the Hero for any prog metal lovers and “Throw the Coins” for more classically-inclined folks.
36: Tattoos and piercing i have
No tattoos, but my lobes are pierced (THREE FUCKING TIMES).
59: Do I have any strange phobias?
I hate spiders, don’t really like walking by myself in the dark, and don’t like being hugged or touched by the randomest people.
123: Dyed my hair?
Never, though I did once spray-color it blue.

Nope, I have boyfriend.
15: Favourite quote
“I cannot live without books.” —Thomas Jefferson
33: My current relationship status
In love. :3
The best significant others are the ones who talk with you about feminism after a few rounds of kinky sex. Butt bruises + “MRAs are such ignorant asses” = best date night ever.
to everyone who’s ever said “it’s fantasy/sci fi! it doesn’t have to make sense!”
it fucking does
it may make bullshit sense (e.g. “my fsogalifer fucks with physics!” or “~magic~!”) but it still has to have some sort of reasoning or logic, or there’s nothing to ground your readers
and another thing
everything has consequences, so you either need to show those consequences or have a good reason for why they don’t exist, and then have consequences for that
so if you want interstellar travel, either research what that would have to be like (really long and boring and hundreds of years long), or come up with an explanation for faster-than-light travel and research what that would be like
you can’t get away from logic and physics and research, folks
…you know me too fucking well. Jerkface. :P
I love you so fucking much right now I would bake you cinnamon rolls with hugs in them
sunburnt and in pain but talked with boyfriend about feminism and cuddled a lot and hung out with friiiiends so that was awesome
Virgin: Give a description of the person you want to lose (or have lost) your virginity to.
Let’s see. Tall. Very tall, actually. Really long, thin hair that he keeps in a ponytail, but I think it looks better down. It’s very light brown and gets blond in the summer. Very skinny, but not stick-skinny, more just really, really toned - he’s a cross country runner. Very angular. His nose is wide and European-looking, like mine, and we blow our noses the same way, which I think is absolutely hilarious. He has these eyes that are this perfectly clear blue, and they’re pretty deep-set - his eyebrow ridge is very pronounced, so it makes them look even deeper set. He has hands that completely dwarf mine, which is fascinating because I have yaoi hands, but apparently his hands are actually small for a guy his height. Regardless, he’s very nimble-fingered and he plays the guitar and bass, and when he listens to music he’ll do chord positions with his hands on whatever’s around - the steering wheel, a chair arm, my leg, whatever. He is not nearly as well trained in singing as he is in playing the guitar, so he tends to be off-key and a bit nasal, but his voice is very deep and pleasant to listen to, and when he’s being silly it jumps up about fifteen octaves and it’s so fucking funny. He is a very fuzzy bear of a man.
…yeah. Word dump there for ya. I’m in love, what can I say?
Tattoo: What tattoos do you want or have, and what’s the story behind them?
I don’t have any tattoos, and I don’t think I’d get them because I’m weird about permanent things, but if I did, I’d want around my right wrist in fancy script, “I cannot live without books,” and then around the left wrist, “all men are created equal.” They’re both Thomas Jefferson quotes because favorite founding father, yo, and they’d be, I dunno, sort of like handcuffs of what’s important? Because my writing and my civil rights stuff are both really important to me and I take them seriously and passionately.
Answered skirt already. :)
Disney: Which Disney character are you most like?
I flatter myself to say Esmeralda (“Silence!” “JUSTICE!”), so I’m going to go with Meg because snarky sarcastic sass seducing awkward nerd-jock dudes, hell yes.
Skirt: If you could learn any dance style, which would it be?
I’d love to learn how to waltz. Properly, not just basic box step twirly stuff. And how to follow/back lead, because right now the only way I can even remotely waltz is if I’m the dude.
Cinema: List of movies that have changed your life or your way of thinking.
so it turns out that three hours of sleep over two days makes you a bit batty
and by a bit batty, I mean you start having involuntary daydreams that your storage supplies have names and can talk
the window fan box is named Biff, by the way
his friends are Clint the miscellaneous shit storage box and Clyde the tape dispenser
so less than twenty-four hours after I post the cerberus thing, I have over 75,000 notes and it’s on fucking imgur
I need to go worship at my history professor’s altar now for being the gateway to tumblr fame and apologize for calling him satan earlier
Thinking about getting a blacklist for all the spiders on my dash, because if there’s one thing that reduces me to a little girl who needs to put her hands over her face until the scary thing is gone and occasionally needs someone else to close the tab for her, it’s fucking spiders. Two questions: is this actually likely to work, and which blacklist is best/easiest to use?
if you ever think mythology is boring or serious business or whatever shit
just remember that cerberus, the hell-hound and guard dog of the underworld, comes from the root indo-european word ḱerberos, which evolved into the greek word kerberos, which got changed to cerberus when it went from greek to latin
ḱerberos means “spotted”
hades, lord of the dead, literally fucking named his pet dog spot
[referring to my apparent ability to make any subject interesting by virtue of my voice, which makes no sense to me but okay]
Me: I should use this power for evil.
Roomie: I hope by “evil” you mean “queer domination of the world,” because that’s the only kind of evil I’ll accept from you.
Me: Well, yeah. Was thinking more taking over the American political structure and becoming the first woman president and-
Roomie: So, queer domination of the world.
Me: Basically, yeah.
