Pip usually wears protection or only enters Naomi elsewhere when she’s in heat, using his hands and toys to satisfy her core. But he’s all for being a dad if she really wants it. He already knows how to do the baby care things with all the calves in his extended family and younger direct relatives in the herd.

❝ Mm... The toys never feel as good as the real thing, though... ❞
That didn’t mean his efforts weren’t appreciated, however. Pip always satisfied her, to say the least, but she couldn’t help worrying over him in turn. He’s her mate, after all, and being the only one to feel good never quite sat right with her, no matter how many times he’s helped her through such times.
The idea of finally becoming a mother, though? The smaller bovine could feel her cheeks burning, hands starting to toy with her skirt a tad in hopes of calming her racing heart a little.
❝ S-So... Um... If I said I wanted to try for a child... ❞
Hmmm, i think naomi. They both pretty affectionate but naomi just love to give quick hugs or kisses more often than halle, or like giving her something she made,,,yeah kinda like that
9. Who worries the most?
Hmm, i think they both worries quite the same amount but naomi is more prone to stress and halle always the kinda caretaking one in this case. but that's not the point lol, i think halle is a bit more worrying while naomi is more to stressing out over things but actually dont really worry much abt it (you know what i'm saying?)
24. Who whispers inappropriate things in the other’s ear during inappropriate times?
Naomi, bcs why not. sometimes halle is working and she just leans to her ear and say stuff halle is like babe wtf and naomi just want to have a little entertainment from hal's reaction so she laughed and the inappropriate shit turns soft bcs halle is staring at naomi laughing like,,,damn 😳🥺
I have made many many rants here and elsewhere about representation in media, and specifically Jewish representation. It’s practically become my Thing.
Good news! I just finished reading Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik, and LET ME TELL YOU, it is what I have been looking for. Perhaps it is what you have been looking for, too!
Is it perfect? No. If I wanted to, I could sit down and pick apart all the ways in which it falls short of my Jewish Representation In Fiction Media Ideal. But I don’t really want to do that, because it ticks SO MANY BOXES and I am grateful for its existence.
Is it all we need? Obviously not. I want more. (Also worth noting that Naomi Novik is a Jewish writer, and while that in no way diminishes the amazingness of this book and its Jewish representation, it does nothing to diminish my craving to see good Jewish representation even in works that don’t have Jewish writers.)
But oh my god this book. It has a Jewish protagonist whose Jewishness is deeply important to her - despite her grappling and struggling with it at times - while not being her entire personality/plotline, and while not being the entire plot of the book. It doesn’t shy away from anti-Semitism/anti-Jewish racism, and while it doesn’t belabour the point too much, it is a constant reality which the Jewish characters are deeply aware of and which the non-Jewish protagonists slowly unlearn (and some characters, of course, don’t).
I don’t want to give spoilers but I have had so many disappointments from so many failed attempts at Jewish representation in other works - which is why I put off reading this for so long, because I was afraid of being disappointed again - and this book gave me none of those.
ALSO it has Fae, at least three different spins on the Rumpelstiltskin story nested in each other, a threat of endless winter, shades of the Persephone story, bits of found family, three brilliant and self-sufficient women protagonists, and tortured antihero love interests whom you will grow to care about despite yourself. IT IS SO GOOD AND I HIGHLY RECOMMEND, whether or not you are looking for good Jewish representation in a fantasy book. That’s practically just a beautiful bonus.

The 23-year-old was named Laureus Sportswoman of the Yr for 2021 after profitable her second US Open title, however it wasn’t simply her success on the court docket that contributed to her claiming the accolade.

This week, one of my virtual pals sent me this Naomi Wolf video, which I recommend you watch:
Naomi Wolf is perfectly accurate warning that the COVID Passport is an unassuming, mild, reasonable-sounding concept that will lead to untold catastrophic civic consequences. She is way out front, and we should all pay attention to her.
The COVID Passport is the doorway to fascism in…
Saint's gonna snuggle Naomi from behind, smirking. "I went into town today and got you only the best of your favourite foods... that's right, I bought the fancy grass-- I'm kidding. But I did go to the farmer's market and got some nice salad ingredients."

❝ If you had actually spent any money on grass, I would have been disappointed in you~ ❞
She knew he was teasing. Laughing as she leaned back against him the bovine woman tilted her head back, being careful of her horns as hands lifted to gently cup his cheeks.
❝ Can I have a kiss? Afterwards, I’m looking forward to seeing what you brought back! ❞
