  • Skyscraper is like the best friend. TW: for disordered eating tendencies
    Spoiler! :
    I've been going through a lil relapse phase. In history, we were given Hershey's Kisses bc my teacher is the best. And I was seriously debating on whether or not to eat it. So I go to flip a coin and Skyscraper is like "Wut you doing?" and I explain it to him. So I flip the coin and it landed on tails, which I put as "not eat." But he wouldn't have it. He kept flipping the coin till it landed on a face that he put as "can eat" and oh my gosh I do no deserve him ;-;

  • Sometimes mythology makes no sense, and you shouldn't look at it too closely. For example, Achilles' companion, Patroclus, was said to have killed another child in a fit of rage during a game, and yet in the same breath that Patroclus served as a role model for Achillles because he was "kinder."

  • My audition slot for The Importance of Being Earnest is BOOKED.

    February 20th, 7pm! The director is "encouraging" British accents, so you know what, I'm going to learn one within the next two and a half weeks, and if I get cast I can always refine it. The main thing is I just want to be confident enough with the lines.

    Also they are doing an audition where everyone shows up and he pulls people to read, rather than an individual slot which I actually prefer.

    I'm just a trifle bit nervous because it looks like this play is already attracting a lot of attention/interest. I'm kind of expecting that this theater is going to tire of me after some point, but well see how this goes! And this play has two parts for women in my age range, when the past ones have only had one. (Though, I can only see myself playing one of them, not the other, but I still submitted for both and we'll se what happens)

    If I'm being honest, 2023 has been off to a rough start. I don't need to get into it right now but today has been especially shit. I've for sure had better days in my life... so, not off to a great start.

    I just....want to be on stage again and I think this play would be a lot of fun... it's fun that I very much need right now.

    (Oh, we're also filming the first scene of Under the Apple Tree on February 25th!) So there are reasons to look up.

  • 5 Reasons Why Hot Chocolate Is Better Than Tea: An Argument That I Totally Did Not Make Up On The Spot
    by silver, on the occasion of @Euphory's #truthordare

    1. hot chocolate doesn't fill up two entire drawers of my pantry because there aren't a bajillion types that i feel the need to own, unlike somebody *cough* tea *cough*. i should charge my tea rent because it easily takes up 15% of my food space.
    2. hot chocolate is better because chocolate is the best thing on earth and so until Chocolate 2.0 or something is released* it remains undefeated.
    3. no one's elitist about hot chocolate. things heat up and boil over (ahahaha wasn't that funny) in the tea fandom because of arguments over things like whether or not tea should have sugar, or milk, or if it's okay for some teas to have those but not others, or what type of tea is the best. hot chocolate is just hot chocolate and all hot chocolate is a vibe.
    4. also, tea and coffee enthusiasts are always hashing out which drink is better and hot chocolate is chilling there in the other corner of the cafe, unproblematic and vibin'. caffeinated beverage quarrels? never heard of her.
    5. for the moment, it's socially acceptable to put marshmallows in your hot chocolate but not in your tea. if anyone wants to add marshmallows to their tea after reading this, i encourage you to (in the spirit of chaos), but under this current social norm, hot chocolate is certainly winning because it's the one with the marshmallows. thank you.

    *if any of you secretly have magic or powers, i am begging you, please. make Chocolate 2.0 happen.

    BluesClues yes to everything about this, the best argument that has ever been made

  • Ok so like I’ve only read 3 harry potter books and I’m not really interested in it but like.. there’s gotta be other wizard prisons besides Azkaban, right? Like do they just send people to maximum security prison over small crimes too or do they have other smaller wizard jails?

    GengarIsBestBoy Also why are there only like 3 illegal spells? There are a *lot* more spells that should be illegal. You can literally make someone grow a slug out of their mouth but that’s perfectly legal apparently

    IcyFlame I think that there's definitely other wizarding prisons - Nurmengard was used to hold Grindelwald for example. Azkaban is just known as the official prison for holding British Wizards.

    On the curses, I think there are only 3 that are 'unforgivable' so have like immediate sentences but others could probably be punished too!

  • Ah I'm so indecisive!

    Lately, I've been reading a lot of Danez Smith's poetry! I think they have such a unique voice, and I like how they talk about their experiences with race and identity! It's painful, but I can't stop reading.

    not an elegy for Mike Brown is a good poem! =D

  • I find it funny that editing, especially if it's multiple times takes longer than writing the whole story. That could be just me, but it certainly feels like it.

    Ari11 Definitely. Editing is pain. That's why I just start over...and have been working on the same story for 4 years now.

  • As I said a few days back, I got myself a vintage quill and diary. I wanted to see and feel what writing must have been like hundreds of years ago.


    Contrary to first impressions, I discovered that the physical act of penning something down must have taken more effort and will. Writing with a quill can be somewhat messy.


    A quill, unlike a fountain pen, needs to be constantly dipped in ink. On vintage paper, which tends be raw and porous, writing with ink can be a challenge.

    The need to constantly dip the quill in ink, the spillage, the inkstains on your hands, on the page, the constant blotting, the sudden blobs of ink softening the page and making it teary unless it is allowed to dry well, makes writing even a few words laborious and time-consuming.


    Yet despite these difficulties, people in the past persevered and wrote with a passion, driven by their love for the written word.

    As we comfortably type away our novels and poems on our laptops. Let us also remind ourselves of the labor and love that went into written communication in the past.

    Thanks for coming to my talk, fam.
