A/N: from this chapter onwards, there will be mentions of Bill’s backstory as detailed in Flat Dreams. It won’t be necessary reading it to know what’s going on here, though - I’ll make sure of that!


Stanley Pines did not have a healthy relationship with sleep. He did not have a healthy relationship with plenty of things, really, but sleep came pretty close to the top of the list.

Ayy salty angry tumblr mom, I just finished my first book a few days ago! And it's written in such a way that no one can say "hey, the themes of racism in this aren't REALLY about racism"

There is literally no wriggle room. Terry was not one of those coy authors who wanted to let you make your own mind up as to whether or not racism was good or bad, he was emphatically beating us over the head with the message “STOP. BEING. BASTARDS.”

And he did so by making the heroes pause—y’know, the people who are usually superhuman in their unproblematic behavior—look at their own lives and go “oh shit, I’m part of the problem.”

I just *drags fingers down face* AAAAAAAAAAAGH

i'm reading mary robinson's autobiography

and it’s making me feel AWFUL. i feel like the biggest failure to ever loser ever. she was a senator, barrister and professor by the age of 25. TWENTY FIVE.

and the whole thing is exacerbated by this picture of us:

it’s like, could I have made any less of an effort that day???

every time someone posts someone else’s art without a source i just get filled with rage like i dont even have a justified reason for it since im not even an artist and it isnt my art but its just so aggravating, like someone worked hard on it and they deserve praise and then someone just posts it without even giving them credit and its  just aaaaaaaagh
