cassemlyds:

listen I’m not saying that Scarlett Johansson’s response to Dylan Farrow’s letter was the worst one of them all, but do just wanna kind of gently/aggressively remind everyone in the midst of reblogging Winter Soldier shit that Scarlett Johansson is a rape apologist and is also starring in one of the most racist pieces of shit to come out this year, so maybe dial back your “feminist” glee about how “body positive” she is.

We don’t get uncomplicated heroes.

Scandinavian tales and creatures

Skeppsrån (watchers of ships) are beautiful but elusive women who guard ships sailing across the ocean, protecting them from raging storms and the giant beasts that lurk down in the deepest waters. Some believe skeppsrån were originally skogsrån; their spirits trapped within the wood planks of the ship and forced to leave their precious forests to roam the seas instead.

Office supply magic

stsathyre:

Everything is magical when you want it to be.

  • Paperclips for binding and banishing (link the paperclips, then unlink them and throw one half far, far away.)
  • White out for glamours, covering up secrets, deception, and change.
  • Multi-color pens for your color correspondence petition needs.
  • Who needs a magic ink stamp? I fucking need a magic ink stamp. Stamp the shit out some mundane.
  • sticky note sigils
  • Business card sigils. Business cards with career intent. Business cards
  • God directories/Rolodex
  • Spell flash drives
  • Magical scrap booking

Ten questions to ask a friend who just read your novel

ineptshieldmaid:

mordinwrites:

Found this article. Found it incredibly helpful. Be sure to go read the full story, but these are the ten questions the author (Lydia Netzer) covers in it:

Some of this could be easily adapted into roleplay critiques, though it’s primary use is, of course, novel writing.

Replace ‘story’ with ‘argument’ and also useful for academic work!

"Today everyone tried to catch the baby elephants so we could put Louis Vuitton blankets on their backs. I’ve never seen anything more brilliantly stupid. I hope Louis Vuitton like it; they should definitely give the elephant a modeling contract."

Keira Knightley: The Chronicles of Keira | Vogue, June 2007



This is still probably my favorite Keira Knightley profile for her wry commentary; I’m pretty sure Vogue still hasn’t realized she was laughing at them.
