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.

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."

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.

But cities that are magical and sentient tho

toomanystarstocount:

  • Cities shutting down the subway and refusing to lower bridges when potholes get too bad and nothing is done about them because hey that hurts and someone needs to fix it.
  • Cities opening old abandoned subway stations and venting hot air above ground during the winter for the homeless population.

The princess cried for days.

Mermaid by Sergey Kolesov

Ok, that’s fucking terrifying and cool.

woah I love this interpretation of mermaids. not human sized, but the size of like a blue whale

That moment you realise the fishermen’s hooks are tearing her flesh.

Emily Caswell:

Emily’s recent project is a comparison study of the Cornish and Icelandic habitats; comparing the similarities and differences in the landscape, flora and fauna. The first part of her project is being undertaken in Cornwall, with the majority of the work being done in the north coast. Whilst in Cornwall Emily is perfecting her camera techniques before she heads off to Iceland for nine days in March.

When she heads off to explore Iceland, Emily shall be traveling the south coast. Her trip will start in Reykjavik and end at Iceland’s largest glacier, Jökulsárlón. Throughout her travels she shall be photographing the famous waterfalls, volcanoes, glaciers, as well as the variety of wildlife such as whales. Throughout the whole project she shall be portraying the beauty of the two environments, through the use of colour, form and lines within the natural habitats.
