apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad f**k” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.
I have a love for her that runs deep.
I Painted My Nails 7 Hours Ago and Thought They Were Dry Then I Did Something and it Turns Out They Weren’t: my autobiography.The nail polish will harden up instantly if you dip your fingertips in ice-cold water.
also spray them with spray-on cooking oil before soaking them in the ice water. it makes them shiny and slick.
I love when girls get together to solve problems
Hey, Circe Will Send You Food Because Everyone Likes Weird Other Country Food? Something Something FLIGHTLESS BIRDS!!!?
ManticoreImaginary’s Kiwi Delicious Giveaway!
I wanted to do a giveaway, but being completely uncreative and also not a hugely wealthy person, I decided my best option was to send you delicious tasty treats from a foreign land. The pack has been put together from where I’ve seen people on the internet go “what is THAT?” so some of these things you might actually have locally, but hopefully not most of them.
The prize will contain: Pineapple Lumps, a block of Whittaker’s chocolate, Maltesers, Jaffas, Tim Tams, Perky Nana, RJ’s raspberry licorice, chocolate fish, Cherry Ripe, and an adorable sheep or kiwi soft toy that I’ve yet to purchase but it’ll be cute as fuck, I bet.
- Each reblog is an entry. I’m only counting one reblog per person.
- The winner will be drawn on the 1st October and the package will be shipped soon after that.
- New Zealanders can’t enter for obvious reasons. Aussies, you can, I guess, but most of this stuff you’ve already got? (If I draw out an Australian I might just send you a mini-pack and then redraw someone else. I’m not posting you tim tams, dude.)
- Actual included items might change slightly from what it says up there. It’ll still be a bunch of kiwi yums, but the world does its thing and stuff changes. We just gotta roll with it, people.
- You don’t have to be following me.
Backstage at Comicon: Here I am showing my 4 million year old asteroid piece to @BettyMWhite .
the first time bones holds jims hand, jim has to stop for a minute, breathless and almost confused.
"jim?" he says, hands still together, turning slightly to ser jims pallid face. "you okay?"
and jim just has to stop for a moment, because to feel bones callused fingers mixed with his, to feel the warmth of his palm-
"yeah, bones," he smiles. "perfect,"
bones smiles and jim doesn’t think hes ever been more in love.
Comics can be hard to enjoy sometimes. I don’t know if there’s another fandom out there where we are so often at war with out media of choice.
When we start, we’re faced with the daunting task of reading back through decades, almost a century, of back-catalog. We have to force ourselves to understand, reconcile, and accept different iterations of our favorite characters, deal with their untimely deaths and long-awaited returns.
Sometimes a creator will take hold of our favorites and write them in a way that we, long-time fans, disagree with. Their personalities change from writer to writer, their appearance from artist to artist.
It’s hard. You have to have thick skin and eternal patience to be a comics fan. It’s tough for me, right now, to enjoy comics the way I used to. Even Marvel has been testing my patience in a mighty way.
But the fact is, and the intended point of this post, is that I owe Marvel in particular a huge debt of thanks right now. Not too long ago, if someone walked into my store and asked me to recommend a book with a female lead, a female writer, a female artist or all of the above, all I could do was shrug and refer them to some older issues. There was some, but there wasn’t enough.
But thanks to an actual effort by Marvel to diversify, I have had three separate customers walk out of my store today with armfuls of Storm, Captain Marvel, Black Widow, Ms Marvel, X-Men and more. And I still feel like I’m forgetting something. How wonderful is it that there are so many female-led books that I can AFFORD to forget one or two?
I have happy customers. Customers that thought they were going to walk in here and leave with one or two books. Instead they’re buying hundreds of dollars of books with WOMEN on the cover, with women’s NAMES in the credits. That feels amazing.
(Honorable mentions to Pretty Deadly and Lumberjanes which have also been huge hits today)

JUST THINK ABOUT CAROL AND GAILA
THEY’RE BOTH BRILLIANT AND PRETTY WEIRD (seriously if you don’t think carol is weird you’re wrong, she has really strange antics. did anybody else notice her walking away from jim in mid-conversation sorta whispering "torpedoes" to herself? and she jumped in front of a super human by saying “stop! wait” AS IF THAT WAS GONNA HELP ANYTHING, CAROL PLS)
THEY’RE BOTH EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE WITH WHO THEY ARE
BOTH OF THEM TALK LIKE
THESE. LADIES. WON’T. TAKE. YOUR. SHIT.
THEY’RE CLEARLY BOTH GORGEOUS AND LOVABLE
AND IT’S REALLY EASY TO SEE THESE TWO BEING OPEN IN THEIR SEXUALITY
CAN YOU IMAGINE THEM BECOMING CLOSE FRIENDS AND GOSSIPING ABOUT JIM
BUT AS THEY SPEND MORE TIME TOGETHER AND GET CLOSER, THEY BRING HIM UP LESS AND LESS
AND EVENTUALLY THEY START HOOKING UP AND CLAIMING THEMSELVES TO BE “FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS”
BUT THEY FALL IN LOVE AND BECOME SPACE WIVES
LET’S JUST HOPE GAILA IS ABOARD THE ENTERPRISE
CAUSE I WON’T TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER
