(and it's getting out of hand)

Can anyone help a poor girl out for laundry?

We have no washer in our house and I’ve been hand washing a lot of stuff, but its piling up. The laundry mat has actually been getting more expensive (by like 50¢ to a dollar) and I do laundry for a family of 5. I’m trying to get money to do the laundry for next week. If you can’t donate please reblog thank you!

They have the perfect opportunity to give Kara and Lena the multi season slowburn that seems to be exclusively reserved for straight couples, like on Bones or Castle. I hope they take it. It's not everyday that a CEO of a multi billion dollar tech company with an infamous psychotic family, and a super powered hero alien that works as a journalist during the day, can walk into a relationship with another person as equals while also balancing each other out.

RIGHT?!?!?!?! RIGHT?!?!?! ITS SOLID GOLD. solid. effing. gold. handed to them on a platter. they barely have to try!!!! which is why i get so frustrated at the idea of it being wasted. its more than just a cute pairing. im like. WHEN DOES THIS EVER HAPPEN? and THEN….extra bonus points for being two [incredibly attractive] women! sigh. this is why i’m in this mess. supercorp, why do you control my life?

SHOP UPDATE

3 new cleansing bags have been added to my etsy shop, i do have more in the making (more of the modern and city witch bags ((but not many more!!))) but i wanted to get a few up since its been awhile. 

The Modern and City Witch bags are fabric from the amazing @firesidetextiles​ that i just couldnt resist and i do plan on getting more from them in the future cause their fabric is just gorgeous!! 

so go and grab these before their gone cause who knows when i’ll get more up!


Each bag is hand sewn and lined with a homemade cleansing blend between the fabrics so that your cards, stones, tools, whatever, get cleansing while they rest! no more need for special time consuming rituals to get that energy out! 

have a suggestion for fabric patterns? Please send them my way! i do not take commissions unless under special circumstance, but i am always open to hear ideas and would like to try to accommodate customer demands!!

advice for biting in dogs? nothing serious, its just play nipping that gets out of hand because she hasnt really learned many manners, and i'm not too sure about teaching her its ok to gently grab. the past few times shes done it i just yelped really loud/ignored her and then she quit, but idk if thats the best option?

Nipping = playtime is over. When Walter was a bitey little bastard baby, she loved to go for ankles and my arms and hands. I would just cross my arms and look straight ahead and ignore her, and resume play when she stopped jumping/trying to bite. She learned pretty quickly that crossed arms meant ‘stop that’ and that biting beyond a gentle grip (just gently putting my hands in her mouth) would stop the fun. She would just stop and sit down and wait. I also made sure to teach bite inhibition/soft biting by actively sticking my fingers and hands in her mouth and letting her nibble and play as long as she was gentle. This helped with letting the vet handle her face, too.

It’s important to teach a dog how to bite gently, instead of teaching them not to bite altogether. Dogs don’t have hands like us so they use their mouth to play and communicate. You don’t have to correct them for biting, just teach them that anything beyond gentle mouthing means that playtime and communication time is over.

Hello! What is the date of the announcement again?

The announcement that everyone is waiting for will be in the next issue of Hana to Yume, which is due to be out July 5th. However, sometimes people get their hands on a copy a little earlier, and, if said announcement is something big, we may hear about it before then~

tbh I don’t get when people say they “loooovee Barnes & Noble and can’t be trusted in there” like its just full of brand new NYT best seller full price books that you can get for a fraction of the price online. I got a $50 gift card once and I got two books.
Half-Price Books on the other hand… that’s an entirely different story. There’s a much more interesting selection and they have movies and comic books too. I just got five DVDs (a couple not even opened) and two paperbacks for less that fifty bucks. The point is I can’t be trusted to walk out of bookstores empty handed but I CAN be trusted to get a good deal.

I forgot to mention! I also was exposed to the Hogfather Film long before the books! So animated Soul Music - Hogfather film - books! I only collect from second hand shops now, including that disappearing one in NOLA, and I always get excited to read stories that you quote from! I'd love to cosplay the witches!

I love getting books from second hand shops; I bought all the new releases as they were coming out but there’s something about a pre-worn copy of a Discworld book that makes it more fun to read. Maybe because it takes away the instinct to preserve the book in its pristine condition and frees you to drop it in the bath, as Sir Terry intended.

And if you cosplay as the Discworld’s greatest power couple please post pictures

I had an anon a while ago asking for Hunk love and I was so busy I didn’t get to it until now! (And even now it’s kind of messy but !!! I love hunk!!!)

katie mcgrath/supercorp fans, we need to have a tiny chat.

i’m assuming (hoping, mostly) that the majority of fans that are doing this are young, but yall really need to cool it a bit with trying to speculate and dig into katie’s personal life. she is obviously a very private person, if her lack of social media, and her stating as such in interviews is anything to go by. and apart from that, it’s just… incredibly rude? and weird. and a boundary that needs not to be pushed. (this goes for all actors/musicians/etc. fyi, holy shit! it’s not a new concept.)

like, it’s great that more people are becoming fans of hers! but ho boy, some of the stuff yall are saying and doing just isn’t cool. just, relax a little. leave her personal life alone. it’s not that hard.

also, this isn’t actually a problem like digging into her personal life is, but can yall just cool it with the kashy mcgra thing? it’s how her name is pronounced. just, relax.

Crime scene investigators are about to get a helping hand from our ancient ancestors. The earliest known synthetic pigment, Egyptian blue, is found in some of the paint on ancient statues, coffins, tomb walls, and amulets. Most other pigments long ago faded. Modern scientists, intrigued by its longevity, worked out Egyptian blue’s chemical composition decades ago. Recently it was discovered that it emits near-infrared radiation when exposed to certain kinds of light. Basically: it has rare, invisible luminescence.

And why does that help crime-stoppers? Egyptian blue can be dusted onto complicated surfaces where fingerprints are normally hard to retrieve. The surface is then photographed with a modified camera and a filter sensitive to Egyptian blue’s near-infrared rays. If fingerprints are there, they glow clearly in the resulting image. Science is amazing.

so, um. if you have any particular feelings about labyrinth--specifically Sarah--uh, go wild.

WILD PEACHES  [AO3]

.

The morning after Sarah Williams defeats the Goblin King, she gets up and makes toast. She has to brush some glitter off the toaster—it withers and vanishes at the brush of her fingertips, and she stares at her hand for a long time. 

It mostly just looks like her hand. Even when she turns it over, and sees where she scraped her knuckles against the oubliette, where the shattered mirror cut the back of her wrist. It looks like she fell, or was playing in the street. That’s all.

The toast comes out burned, and Sarah stares at that too. Eventually, she slumps down against the cabinets and cries, wracking sobs that send her dad and Karen rushing into kitchen. They check her forehead for a fever, put their hands on her, and keep asking, “Are you okay? Sarah, please, tell us what’s wrong…”

Eventually, her dad drags her into his lap and cradles her against his chest, like he did when she was little. Her legs are too long to really fit anymore, but Sarah hugs him around the neck anyway. “It’ll be okay,” he says, keeps saying. “You’ll be okay.” And Sarah—doesn’t laugh, because she can’t, and doesn’t have the words to express what—how—

(None of her stories ever talked about this. What did Sir George do, the morning after he slayed the last dragon in England? Did Tam Lin eat breakfast, or did he sit there, shivering, wondering if his hands were different, having been claws and wings and scales?)

Afterwards, she leaves the burnt toast outside on the back porch. Not an offering. Maybe a reminder.

.

It’s Didymus she sees the most often, mostly because he’s the one who invites himself rather than waiting for an invitation. He comes for tea, but even if there’s no tea—which there isn’t, usually—he comes to tell Sarah stories. She learns to love poetry because there’s no escaping it with him. (She won’t read Idylls of the King until Brit Lit in college, but she ends up scrawling a lot in the margins; Didymus’ telling of events had been much more interesting.)

Once, she falls asleep like that, her hands tucked behind her head with Didymus curled up and sleepily reciting from the crook of her elbow. “So tender was her voice, so fair her face—though I don’t think he was looking at her face, my lady, pardon me for saying so—”

Sarah buries her nose in his fur. Didymus always smells of rosewater, and a crispness she thinks is just…the Labyrinth. She falls asleep trying to place it.

She wakes up with a wild fox in her bed, animal-black eyes frightened and flat, teeth bared. The fox is whining, and she’s tempted to throw herself across the room, to get away from this wild thing and its teeth. It takes a monumental will to keep herself still and her breathing slow, even; like she’s still asleep and unafraid. 

It takes her longer to swallow, and start humming one of the songs he taught her—a knight’s round, he’d said. She’s shaky at first, but the fox’s ears flick forward. It cocks its head, and slowly, the teeth disappear behind its lips. 

She almost laughs when noses at her throat curiously, butting its head against her jaw like a cat might.
