Now Playing Tracks

Day seventeen of camp:


I plan on pushing for 50k by Monday to make a buffer, since next week is basically going to be “lol Japanese paper lol ocean acidification paper lol fracking paper time to research motherfucker” week, and I know I won’t have time to write.

Anyway… The MC’s started working on her plan and it seems to be going well. At least for now.

Favorite bit of the day:

Her and my mom would get along. Heh. I could kind of see it, actually. The matriarch of the Cartwright family and the queen of the Shades sipping tea and bitching about how insolent and whiny their kids were.


i see a lot of people spending time thinking about “who tops” in their otp when they should be thinking about

  • who quotes twilight at the other person
  • who appreciates cat videos more
  • who spent a hellish summer working in the worst gamestop you can imagine
  • who lets the other person win in ticklefights
  • who chews on their pencil
  • who’s the person who accidentally thinks of their grandparents one time while they’re making out and kills the mood




Hidden Magic: Katlego Kgabale

As kids, we grew up with our imagination running wild though our minds. As least I did! I would spend hours bent over a book, flipping recklessly through pages for words and images to feed my daydreams. Kgabale illustrated work offers up little brown girl dreams that I would have loved to come across as a child. But even as an adult, I can still appreciate and admire the creativity behind each piece.

I would frame these and place them on my wall, love them that much.

Day sixteen of camp:


I’ve been terrible at keeping up with these.

MC’s best friend was found, beaten and unconscious, but she’s alive. Wooo. MC and second love interest managed to come up with a plan, and are getting ready to see if it works. It probably won’t. A couple breather scenes with the MC and her cousin, and then the shit got ready to hit the fan.

Favorite bit of the day:

“Do witches hate incubi and succubi or something?”

“They have a tendency to hit and quit.” Her face scrunched up. “Go out on a date with a guy, have him take you back to his place… You wake up the next morning, feeling like shit and a bit older, with a note and twenty bucks for a cab.”

“And that happened to you?”

“Yeah.” She frowned. “My friend set me up with some redhead. Whirlwind date, he took me back to his apartment… Best sex I ever had, but when I woke up the next morning, it was like I got hit by a truck. His maid tossed me out on my ass, and I had to hitchhike all the way back home. He drained so much magical energy from me that I couldn’t use spell circles for a month. I thought I’d never recover. Next time I see him, I’m kicking him straight in the balls.”


“If your friend tries to set you up with a dark skinned redhead… Run. Run as far as you can.”




Dreamworks is doing something even Pixar hasn’t tried: A black female heroine

DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.

Not one major Hollywood studio has released a 3D animated feature starring a black character.

She looks like she could be some kin to Doc Mcstuffins. An older cousin or something.
