  • Y'all. If you want idea for some wacky character names and nicknames. Read Cullwch and Olwen.

    There's a 3 or 4 page section that's exclusively names. These are just a few. And it's actually a very entertaining story to boot! Giants with poison spears, a very rude young man, and best of all a never ending list of tasks our poor hero has to undertake.

    Pardon my French on that one line; it was explicitly stated that this man was so ugly that no sword could pierce him. Wanted to make note of that for the class this is for.

  • Being a writer means using your skills for evil and writing a poem for your final project so naughty that it has your professor giggling uncontrollably whenever you read your draft out loud.

    After nearly a decade of worldbuilding and scrapping and writing, I've finally gotten around to doing a couple drafts--of a drawing.
    Can't imagine writing a full chapter of this novel at this point! But here's Gaius Ash in all his emaciated glory. A couple of y'all have roleplayed with me and know him already. He's undergone some massive changes in my latest version of the story, but here's the incarnation I used before all that.


  • Welp I'm presenting a nsfw essay tomorrow at a Classics conference y'all. Wish me luck!

  • I was browsing my library's online database list just now for an Art History essay that's due in a couple weeks, and guys, I just hit the motherlode. It has absolutely nothing to do with my paper but everything to do with helping me write speculative fiction more accurately when it's in a medieval/fantasy setting. And so I present to you:

    Medieval Family Life

    Medieval Travel Writing

    These pages include documents, transcriptions, and illustrations of Medieval European life as it pertains to travel and families, and judging from the look of the home website it can give us much, much more--and all of it is primary sources!

  • “I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.
    “So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”

    Just dropping this here because I love this quote and it feels especially relevant for the 2020s.

    TheMythMaster I was watching the lord of the rings a few days ago and was thinking about this quote as well. Definitely wise words.

  • Izzy Hands is such a funky little man. I want to put him in situations.

  • POV: I've borne the thousand injuries as best I could, but you ventured upon insult and I vowed revenge :D



  • Our Flag Means Death was supposed to be goofy and stupid why would they do this to me

  • It's that time of year again.
    The time of year when I hassle my sister until she agrees to watch another Hammer Horror flick with me. So long as it has Cushing (below) or Lee in it.
