proposal: naming a pet member of any of the plain brown fluffy species of tarantula 'Chewbacca'. I don't currently have the means to own a rancho so I'm putting this idea out into the world for others to use. you're welcome.

Excellent advice for future fuzzy tarantula owners.

sprouts are nasty raw, but if you get any kind of broth-based dish with sprouts on the side you can sprinkle a little in bit by bit -- they soak up all the flavor and work better texture-wise with noodles. source: I'm a slut for vietnamese noodle bowls.

nah. they’re what makes me hesitant to order pho. i’m afraid i’m just not a bean sprouts person

out of sheer morbid curiosity I looked up why Moftiss did to Lucy that was so heinous you wouldn't even describe it and now snakes have begun manifesting physically in my home

IT’S BAD

this is a kind of weird question, but do you know if g*psy moths have any different colloquial names? google was no help, and I'd rather not use a term with a racial slur in it if I can avoid it.

That’s not weird! As far as I know, it doesn’t! You could always just refer to it by the scientific name, Lymantria dispar dispar, or abbreviated L.d. dispar.

heads up, that pigeon in the water video -- pigeons can't swim and aren't able to take off from water the way proper waterfowl do, and since they don't have waterproof feathers, that little guy's liable to get waterlogged and drown :(

yeah, I just hope it managed to struggle out later :(

hey, what do we know so far about Fear avatars losing their avatar status? like is it actually possible if you fuck up badly enough/go long enough without sacrificing people to the Entity you serve/violating some kind of taboo (i.e. an avatar of the dark spending too much time in the light, an avatar of the Vast spending too much time in enclosed spaces)? do you think avatars can lose favor with their deities and have their powers be taken away, basically?

It’s an interesting question. Looking back we do have examples of Avatars that have neglected their duty and the answer seems to be that they get consumed. When Breekon is Known he fades from reality. When Daisy is buried her mind clears, but we learn that she’s been struggling the entire time and suffering from the hunt physically as well as mentally. Michael is consumed by its own door and replaced for being ‘distracted.’ Agnes declares she’s compromised for feeling love and sacrifices herself for it.

Melanie was more an avatar in waiting. She was at the tipping point, but by removing the bullet it at least seems that her transformation was cut short (As far as we know).

But now we have information from the newest episode that there’s a chance for those under Beholding to cut themselves off from the entity. I believe this is what Gertrude did and that is why Elias was able to shoot and kill her, she was no longer Archivist or at least was no longer invulnerable. 

If this theory is right and Gertrude did manage to cut herself off from Beholding before her death it would mean Jon could potentially do it too. 

The thing about all the avatars is that it’s not so much the entity changes everything about them. Jon needs to know, even if it’s terrible knowledge, even if the knowledge will make it worse and not help in anyway. He’s always been like that since he was a child following the bully and watching him get pulled into the house by spider legs. Melanie was angry, the slaughter utilized that anger and made her murderously angry. Its why section 31 cops seem to easily become hunters. They hunt monsters and if they do it long enough its ingrained. 

So I think it might be very difficult for a Full Avatar to actually step away once they’ve been embraced because the entity is using their natural traits against them. So I don’t know if they could actually lose their powers. They might retain them just because it might be as much a part of them as anything else and when they use their powers it feeds the entity so the entity wants them to use them. The only sort of exception is Michael but in Michael’s place the Distortion itself wasn’t consumed, just… switched out personalities. 

Also our perspective is mostly through statements so our view might be skewed and it actually might be something more common than we think. Beholding has been obscuring hope of escape from Jon actively. 

Tl;dr: When Avatars don’t fulfill their duties they seem to get consumed, although we might learn that there is a way for Jon to break free since Beholding has been a bit… withholding.

ok so, songs that remind me of the ineffable husbands are basically a bunch of the Sisters of Mercy Songs: "Walk Away", "Some Kind of Stranger", "No Time to Cry", "Dominion/Mother Russia", and "Torch"

“In the heat of the day / When I close my eyes / When I look your way / When I meet the fear / that lies inside / When I hear you say / In the heat of the moment / Say, say, say / Some day, some day” okay this LITERALLY ruined my day.

also. fkcing. also. “would you carry the torch for me?”

Sorry to bother you, but I know you're friendly with @eliciaforever and I've noticed she hasn't updated her blog in over a few weeks or so, and I'm worried that something happened to her. I'd message her myself, but given her inbox situation, I don't know if she's checking messages right now even if she's otherwise unharmed. Do you have any idea what's going on?

Elicia deleted her blog because of the volume of hate she was getting. I’m afraid she no longer on tumblr.

what authors do you consider the most influential on your writing style?

As much as some people like to roll their eyes about Beat Generation writers, I think that reading so much of them at a point in my early 20s influenced my dialogue style, because a lot of it is very naturalistic. But probably reading plays has helped develop my dialogue writing the most. And it doesn’t really matter what playwrights you read, it’s all about being faced with almost nothing but dialogue and having to interpret a story from it.

But still the biggest influence was probably LM Montgomery in terms of learning about writing setting, and making romance from the mundane. 

And I just realized how much LM would probably love Rey and Finn and now i’m emotional.

orevet replied to your post: my moms hate-boner for serena williams is weird…

??? is it just misogynoir or

literally have no idea she thinks she’s whiny and basically a kardashian level celeb and im just like hmmmm someone whiny who doesnt contribute?? sounds nothing like serena and everything like you mother

tried saying like “outfit was a medical thing” when the story came on and she’s like “that’s not an excuse there’s a uniform you have to follow” and im like “it’s a medical device. if a kid got sent home for dress code for wearing a brace would that be okay?” “it’s not the same” i guess it’s not since blood clots can be fatal but i dont think thats what she meant
