Now Playing Tracks

Day seventeen of camp:

38196/65000

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.

OMG THIS IS AWESOME!

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

Day sixteen of camp:

36178/65000

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.”

Yikes.

“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.
