Every single frame of Morticia with that across the face lighting is just, wow, my whole sexuality, gosh.
Do I want to be her???? Do I want to be with her???? THE USUAL DILEMMA

summer crostinis.

Crostini/bruschetta are such a good garden party hors d’oeuvre, but I like making whole toasts like this for breakfasts on days when I have time. It’s a really good way to start the day.

I’ve laid away my bamboo Chasen (茶筅) for too long. Today’s afternoon Matcha (抹茶) was such a delight - the soft froth brought the light bitterness of green tea and warm water into a beautiful almost-creamy concoction. I am most definitely stocking up on my matcha supplies and may throw in a Chawan (茶碗) as a small treat.

Fun fact! Matcha doesn’t dissolve in water and create an infusion the way that steeping tea leaves does, but instead is a suspension of the super-fine grounds in the water. That’s why it can have such a rich, silky mouthfeel, and also why it will settle over time and needs to be re-mixed if you let it sit for too long!

A while ago I heard a version of this story where Athena has pity on Medusa and turns her into the gorgon to protect her from all men. A gift instead of a punishment for her brother’s crimes.

It always stuck with me, so here’s a doodle.

This has come up on my blog a few times, and I REALLY really am struck by how beautiful this is. so.. reblogging it to you guys. Isn’t it lovely?

a comic done by christianne benedict, posted on the womanthology art forum. brilliant!

YES. Jesus, thank you.

I cannot tell you how many times I have had to point out what the audience at conventions actually LOOKS like to people in the industry. They can do signings in a booth full of every kind of person all day long, every color, every size, every orientation and more, and STILL go online and talk about how only white straight males read comics.


"The Women Men Don’t See" — James Tiptree, Jr. (AKA Rebecca Sheldon — thanks, buggeryisthegenus)

And really — the *everyone* men don’t see, when you get right down to it. They don’t see us, they’re convinced we don’t spend money — not on the merch they want to make, anyway — and, if we make so much noise that they have to acknowledge us anyway?

Well, we’re not “real” fans.

*rolls eyes so hard they get stuck*

cranky harry potter feels


where is the harry potter fic where harry has to deal with the fact that ginny weasely is deeply fucked over by childhood insecurities and trust issues from her family and then by her terrible first year at hogwarts and then by her terrible sixth year of hogwarts she was the ringleader of organized guerilla rebellion against a crushing occupationist force when she was sixteen. SIXTEEN.

she is not harry’s happy ending. she was a child in the shadow of her parent’s war and she got her first wounds from it when she was eleven and alone and she carried those scars forward into battle again and again—when she was fourteen, when she was fifteen. she grew up violent and angry under terrible pressure and she’s never going to be anyone’s reward.

i want to see harry fucking realize that. i want to see him wake up at night with her wand at his throat and love her anyway. i want to see him make her sandwiches when her hands are shaking too bad from curse damage to hold utensils. i want to see him get the fuck over himself and earn her.

do you ever cry because a black haired little boy wandered into your life when you were a kid and made you believe in magic and now many years later he’s still there with you and you just know you will stay at his side always no matter what because he’s just so important

I sat here thinking “That’s a highly specific personal experience for 43k people to relate to” for way too long before figuring out what this post was about

No. No, this post is the opposite of what those books did for me. Let me rephrase:

A black-haired little boy wandered into my life when I was a kid and made me believe in magic. Now, many years later, he’s still here with me and I just know he will stay at my side, always and no matter what, because I’m important.

The Harry Potter series empowered me. Not the other way around.
