Megapolisomancy, Or Why All Cities Are Haunted
By Annalee Newitz

“Fritz Leiber’s novel of city magic, Our Lady of Darkness, is a classic in this regard. He invents the term megapolisomancy - the magic of big cities - to describe a strange hex that has been cast on the entire city of San Francisco. A mystical triangle emerges when the Transamerica Pyramid is erected…”

I caved. Angry double tail at Petco stole my heart. theskullqueen helpfully enabled. It’s hard to see against the filter but the tips of his tail are black or dark blue. Needs a name. So far ideas are Spooky (though I already have an axolotl named Mulder), Celeb (silver), Illuin or Telperion (lotr mythos), Nux (mad max), Yue (Atlab)

fantasysyfyworld asked:

What's your opinion on Lovecraft in videogaming?

Hi, there! Thanks so much for your question–and for your patience. I’ve been chipping-away at older asks while mingling-in some newer ones.  
   Sadly, though, I can’t say I have much experience with Lovecratian games (I’m another flavor of nerd these days, I guess)…

i.
Joan chainsmokes cheap cigarettes at
The end of every battle; the Back Alley
Champ, can’t be defeated and they tell
Her she could be big in the ring, but she
Just takes a long drag and lights another
Cigarette before the old one’s burned
Down; a bad habit or maybe the feeling
She’s supposed to have lungs like ash.

ii.
She feels like fire, bright and hot and
Such an unyielding force. Or maybe
She feels like she’s on fire, never stops
Burning no matter how loud the screaming
Gets, and the crowds around her just watch
Like they don’t even hear it, but she screams
So loudly she can’t hear anything else.

iii.
Holy, they called her then, a righteous
Soldier of God; crazy, they call her now
Liar, fool, freak, taunting and jeering in
History book pages, always turning on
Her, only she lead an army when she was
Fourteen and burned for her faith at sixteen
But they never once call her Child.

iv.
The angels left her on that pyre but she
Never once turned her back on them;
She hasn’t stopped fighting since that
Day in the field when They came to her,
And her knuckles are bruised and bloody
And burned and she fights beside sinners
And the damned now instead of kings and
Knights, but it doesn’t matter; this is still a
Battle ground, this is still her Holy War.

right so this is what the wikis taught me about vampires in the hp universe:

  • j.k. rowling didn’t feel like going too deep into that bit bc a) there is already hella lot info and mythos about them around and b) they are more from eastern europe mythos and the whole hp universe is v british.
  • vampires apparently live longer than others !! wikis mention two fellas who lived around 100+ and 200+ years.
  • a vampire bite can’t be cured, or it’s almost impossible, just like a werewolf’s.
  • unlike werewolves, it seems to be more socially acceptable for vampires to breed. there’s even a bloody (half)vampire singer out there who’s famous or something.
  • they are generally more accepted by the wizarding society. there’s a society for tolerance of vampires and laws that prohibit their hunt or things of the like  —  whilst, there are werewolf capture units. at some point or another rita skeeter writes an articule and says something mean about how the ministry should focus on chasing vampires or something and some people are like HELL NAH WHAT !! A TWAT !! ( again, not to mention it’s illegal )
  • it’s uncertain whether muggle stories about vampires are accurate or not. but in general, they do look rather pale and gloom-y. they drink blood, but they also seem to be able to eat other things without problem. ron even assumes that those blood flavored sweets from honeydukes are for vampires.
  • they seem to have much more control over their ‘condition’ than werewolves, being able to control their hunger and being considered generally less dangerous.

“You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later God’ll cut you down
Sooner or later God’ll cut you down
Go tell that long tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter
Tell ‘em that God’s gonna cut 'em down”

Carlos Mérida. Estampas Del Popol Vuh. 1943. 

A series of original lithographs by the Guatemalan artist Mérida published in Mexico in the 1940s. The pieces are based on the 16th century Mayan manuscript Popol Vuh, the Quiché people’s elaborately poetic book of creation, a “Book of the People.” More completely: “a corpus of mytho-historical narratives of the Post-Classic people of the Western Guatemalan Highlands. Popol Vuh’s prominent features are its creation myth, its diluvian suggestion, its epic tales of the Hero Twins Hunahpú and Xbalanqué, and its genealogies. The myth begins with the exploits of anthropomorphic ancestors and concludes with a regnal genealogy, perhaps as an assertion of rule by divine right. As with other texts, a great deal of Popol Vuh’s significance lies in the scarcity of early accounts dealing with Mesoamerican mythologies.”
