Michael Vlamis and Michael Trevino are in Santa Fe to work on a project together before S4 filming kicks off. The project is a short film called "Fog of War" by Swedish-American writer/director Steven Lundgren, executive producer Aprill Winney (directed episodes 3x03 and 3x04 of RNM S3), and producer Pam Robinson. Special effects will be provided by Everett M Byrom III, who's also been working on RNM for several seasons.
The short film is set in France, in October 1918, less than a month before World War I ended.
Private Tommy Atkins (Michael Vlamis) is in hell. He just found out that his entire family has succumbed to the Spanish Flu, while he’s stuck in France fighting a war he doesn’t even understand. When his brother is killed in battle, Tommy starts having visions of a horrifying creature roaming the battlefield at night, devouring the souls of dead soldiers.
As Tommy little by little loses his connection to reality, his mental state turns from that of an innocent boy from Queens, NY with hopes for the future, to a detached young man with nothing left to lose.

hi there 💖 my name is taylor, i'm twenty-three, and i use she/her pronouns. i am a korean-american student, researcher, and writer - and if you want to learn more about me, find out here! i've been thinking about doing this for a little while and i'm going to finally take the leap and look for a nonnie! i'm very new to this experience, but i am looking forward to it!
✨ i would prefer bucky barnes, loki laufeyson, or lee bodecker, but i am happy with sam wilson, steve rogers, helmut zemo, or natasha romanoff!!
✨ i am looking for something that will hopefully be long-term and will include both sfw and nsfw content! i am a submissive and usually play as a brat or a princess, but i would love to talk boundaries if we want to move further forward! if you are not familiar with dom/sub dynamics or likeminded dynamics, i might not be the right fit for you
✨ i am fine with both dms and asks! 🥰
✨ it would be preferable to have someone to interact with at least once daily, but my time stretches thin too! we can always discuss our level of interaction
✨ i suffer from mental illness and would enjoy simple comforts out of having a nonnie, but i understand that this may not be acceptable. i struggle with trauma, eating disorders, and constant stress. if you are not okay with having interactions that mention these topics, i am not the right fit for you.
✨ (there will be days when i need someone to tell me to eat something or go to sleep and i may come to my nonnie for support. if this makes you uncomfortable, please let me know.)
✨ it will take time for me to be vulnerable with you. i have a constant fear that whoever i am roleplaying with might use my vulnerability against me. please have patience with me!
✨ please don't ghost me! just let me know when you want to stop interacting or when you want to disappear. i will only wish you the best of luck, no hard feelings!
sign up now!
please send me a dm to introduce yourself and discuss limits and boundaries!
tagging some lovelies to help signal boost if you can!! @danneelsmain @littlenymphie @wakingbeauty @loving-bucky-is-easier @fragile-heartt @capsteverogersanon @elijahs-wife

thomas jefferson and sally hemings did not have a forbidden romance as many historians like to say. sallywas thomas’s child sex slave and it’s time that people know the truth about our founding fathers.

Photo of Carson McCullers, author of The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter and Member of the Wedding, by Adam Fischer, New York, 1946
“It is a curious emotion, this certain homesickness I have in mind. With Americans, it is a national trait, as native to us as the roller-coaster or the jukebox. It is no simple longing for the home town or country of our birth. The emotion is Janus-faced: we are torn between a nostalgia for the familiar and an urge for the foreign and strange. As often as not, we are homesick most for the places we have never known.”

Cw for brief csa mention. Hey it’s me
Tumblr media
My name is Kihnindewa, I’m a 22 yr old black ndn bisexual two-spirit (they/them, thank u). I’m a tarot reader, certified reiki practitioner, a writer & im trying to move out in 2021 ! Asap, really. I’m struggling really hard to function in my current situation & my quality of life is trash.
I live on tribal grounds in a food desert. I have to drive an hour round trip to buy food & medicine, and to work. I have joint issues, driving so much is slowly making my pain more & more unbearable. And I live in the home I was s*xually ab*sed in as a child, which is extremely hard on my PTSD. And that isn’t even everything. I cannot continue to live here. I was set to move out last month, with another black ndn two-spirit friend, but I was f*red after blatant racial discrimination & everything fell apart. Anyways.
The point of this post is to promote my patreon, where I do tarot readings & post poetry every month, to secure consistent & safe income for myself. You can get familiar with my writing here* & check out some feedback from my tarot readings here & here :)
I’m currently at $272, which is amazing & I’m extremely grateful & proud. Thank you all so much for supporting me as much as u have. I would really appreciate boosting this post & considering becoming a patron if you can & you’re interested in what I do, thank you ily all so much.
Hi! This is an edit being made to this post in nearly April 2021. Since making this post, a couple things have changed. For one, I quit my disgusting job after receiving no justice for racial harassment & a white co-worker saying the n word. For two, my bills have grown lol. So, I am updating my goal to $700 to aim for fully supporting myself with this as my main source of income. Bills, food, gas, etc. This goal may go down as I work on creating another source of income (starting an actual tarot & reiki business)! I’m discouraged that I’m no longer halfway to my goal, but I’m still hopeful & I feel very loved from all of the support I’ve gotten. Thank you so much 🧿
(updated) 331/700 !!! You are all saving my life & giving me hope. No dramatics. Thank you
Patreon 💙
*aight I’ve added my writing tag up there 3 times and it just keeps disappearing ! it’s literally just “my writing” I’ll leave it on this post for u

Black Horror Writers
Feeling a sudden desire, for whatever reason, to add some diversity to your bookshelf? Want to put a few bucks in the pockets of authors of color? Here’s a sampler platter to get you started. 
Tananarive Due A film historian and a hot name in horror fiction, Due is an outspoken academic and prolific author. Start with The Good House, a 2003 Gothic, if you're a fan of haunted house stories.
Wrath James White A former athlete, White is a hugely prolific author of hardcore horror. You can start with The Resurrectionist, but honestly, with more than 35 books to choose from, you've got plenty of options.
Victor LaValle LaValle has only written four novels so far, but they're well-regarded and rich narratives. The Changeling is the usual recommendation for a starting place.
Brandon Massey Southern Gothic themes woven through horror, suspense and urban themes - that's Massey's brand in a nutshell. He's plenty prolific, so you've got a bunch to choose from. Maybe start with this year's new release, The Quiet Ones.
Chesya Burke A prolific short story writer, Burke writes speculative fiction and comic books. If you'd like a collection of stories all in one place, try out Let's Play White. If you'd rather do a novel, read The Strange Crimes of Little Africa.
Jemiah Jefferson Do you like pulpy erotic vampire horror? You don't have to answer that. Just buy Jefferson's books if you do. There's a series, so you'll want to start at the beginning with Voice of the Blood.
Michael Boatman An actor and screenwriter, Boatman is also a novelist. He writes splatterpunk that Joe Lansdale has praised, which is as fine an accolade as they come. The Revenant Road was his first novel. He also shows up in a ton of anthologies, so keep an eye out.
Helen Oyeyemi Oyeyemi is a rising star, Shirley Jackson Award finalist, scholar, a world traveler, among other things. Her most recent book, Gingerbread, came out in 2019. I think it would not be out of line to compare her to Angela Carter.
Maurice Carlos Ruffin A debut novelist, Ruffin's work launched with a bang in February. His book We Cast a Shadow was long-listed for a stack of prizes, and as a scathing cultural sci-fi horror, it fits right in with the work of folks like Jordan Peele.
Nnedi Okorafor A Nigerian-American writer, Okorafor writes for both children and adults, and her stories have earned a whole stack of awards. She is, for the record, also disabled. She's got a whole stack of YA and adult books to choose from, as well as comic books. Binti and its sequel are as good a place as any to start, though.
Jewelle Gomez Philanthropist, playwright, poet, author -- Gomez dabbles in a lot of things, and she's an outspoken voice for LGBTQ women of color. Check out The Gilda Stories if you've always wanted to read about a black lesbian vampire (and, let's be honest, who hasn't?)
PS: When you order, don’t waste your money on Amazon. Instead, use a service like that distributes your hard-earned cash to independent booksellers. Keep money in your community. 
PPS: I love Toni Morrison and Octavia Butler and also left them off the list because they’re well-known already and because I think it’s really important right now to support living artists, but you should check out their work too.

But consider this: women loving women in a dark academia setting
- long strands of hair that cling to a girls’ back as she emerges from the water of the lake, bathed in moonlight and the glow of the windows of the old stone buildings
- throwing around lines of Sapphos fragments, acting as though it is just a meaningless game 
- sleeves of white collar shirts rolled up to her elbows, hair falling into her face, glasses sliding down her nose as she sits over history books for hours on end
- wandering the halls at midnight 
- squeezing into small nooks to not get caught, she distinctly smells of the earth and rain
- her playing the male lead in a play because there simply wasn’t a better fit (and those clothes would fit no one the same way they fit her)
