I am not ashamed


I need to kill a plot bunny, and I’m pretty sure the only way to do so will be to finally write it. For those who don’t know me, I used to fucking adore the Eragon series. Like, I was so bad @celestialbureaucrat had to read the books herself to hold down a conversation with me (in retrospect I am so sorry friend). Looking back, I can say the series is shit and not worth the time to read, but this one fucking behemoth of an Eragon fanfic plot bunny will not leave me alone. Now, I wasn’t in touch with online fandom at the time, otherwise, I probably would have written a really shitty fanfic and gotten rid of this plague, so this monstrosity has been gestating for probably 10 years now.

This shit has everything from terrible OCs who completely take over the story to Frankenstein’s monster-esque worldbuilding additions. It is time to put it to rest. RIP in pizzas, me; I’m probably going to be spending this November (and probably beyond) giving birth to this thing. I really wish I didn’t have to write this, but I feel like it needs to come up in the same way vomit does once it has started its ascent up the esophagus. Jesus fucking Christ, sorry for the short ramble.

I, too, sing America.

I am the darker brother.
They send me to eat in the kitchen
When company comes,
But I laugh,
And eat well,
And grow strong.

I’ll be at the table
When company comes.
Nobody’ll dare
Say to me,
“Eat in the kitchen,”

They’ll see how beautiful I am
And be ashamed—

I, too, am America.

—  Langston Hughes, “I,Too”


If you think Kylo doesn’t have a craft station where he makes adorable little cards for his favourite Space Ginger then boy do I have news for you.

And if you think that Hux doesnt give him shit for it, well. 

I dont think anyone misses the reference but if you did, please make your world a brighter place and watch this.

It is NEVER okay to call someone who is not healthy (physically, mentally, etc) names that make them feel like less of a person.

You may NEVER tell I am lazy because I am having a bad day and I don’t feel like getting out of bed.

You may NEVER call me a princess because I decline to doing outside manual labor in potentially dangerous 90 degree weather. 

I don’t do things, because I CAN’T. 

I am sick and I am not ashamed or afraid to say no to you.

Don’t let ANYONE make you feel bad for your decisions. Whatever you feel is completely justified without any explanation.
