ask de writer

anonymous asked:

Was there any female writer in Shakespeare's England that you know of?

There were indeed, though fewer than men. Here’s a list of the notable ones that goes from a little before Shakespeare’s time to a little after:

  • Marguerite de Navarre, 1492-1549 (French writer of poems and plays, her works were translated into English in her time)
  • Mary Queen of Scots, 1542-1587 (wrote poems)
  • Elizabeth I, 1533-1603 (also wrote poems)
  • Isabella Whitney, c.1540s-? (secular poet. Possibly the first professional female poet in England)
  • Mary Sidney, 1561-1621 (sister of Philip Sidney, respected poet and writer of closet dramas - which are grander things than they sound like)
  • Aemilia Lanyer, 1569-1645 (poet. The section on Eve in her Salve Deus Rex Judaeorum is often regarded as one of the earliest ‘feminist’ works in British literature)
  • Elizabeth Cary, 1585-1639 (poet, playwright and translator. Likely the first English woman to write a public play)
  • Anne Clifford, 1590-1676 (writer, mainly in the form of letters and diaries. A patron of the arts and very highly regarded by John Donne)
  • Mary Wroth, c.1587-c.1653 (niece of Philip Sidney. Poet, closet dramatist and writer of prose romance
  • Lucy Hutchinson, 1620-1681 (poet, translator and biographer. Her Order and Disorder is a highly religious poetic rendition of the bible which offers rich comparisons to Milton’s Paradise Lost)
  • Margaret Cavendish, 1623-1673 (philosopher, poet, and writer ofThe Blazing World, one of the earliest science fiction pieces)
  • Katherine Philips, 1632-1664 (poet, translator and political writer. Her depictions of female friendship are often regarded as lesbianic)
  • Aphra Behn, c.1640-1689 (playwright, poet, spy, political writer, translator and fiction writer. Probably the first professional female playwright. An extremely erotic and homoerotic poet who wrote a novella with a black slave protagonist. Basically too interesting to be described in parentheses… Which is probably why Virginia Woolf mentions her in A Room of One’s Own. You can see why I stretched to Restoration literature just to include her.)

Ah, having to redraw the friends from behind was interesting. Also there is no significance to the order on that list.

Ok so this isn't a ask a character ? But is Sam ever going to go back to his human size? (Moose size)

I have been considering a LOT of different routes to take with the later parts in the series. Here’s just a few possibilities:

1.  Sam undergoes some magic-event that ages him back to an adult (meh)

2.  Series ends with Sam still a fledgling, and I go on to write a totally knew epic series (epic in the traditional sense of being a long story detailing the adventures of a legendary figure, aka the Winchesters…not “epic=awesome” lol)

3.  When the series “ends” (aka when I’ve achieved the endgame I want for this universe), start a new story featuring Adult Angel!Sam set far in the future.  This could end up as either:

  • a crossover with scifi/fantasy set in space or
  • an AU!verse where Sam finds himself in stuck in another timeline around the time season one starts and has to redo everything (but with knowledge of events and archangel powers to boot…could end up Sabriel?).  I’ve been leaning toward this one in my head bc I’ve been wanting to do a rewrite of the series, and I’d love to do it with my Angel!Sam and develop him further as a confident adult.

Honestly, anything could happen at this point!!  I’m not set on anything after the “endgame” is reached…and that won’t be for a LONG while.  There’s still a lot I want to explore and do in this ‘verse, both as side stories and in the main story line. 

What say you, readers?  What are things you’d like to see, or ideas you have spinning through your heads when you read this series?

Aranel the Cyborg aka, Wind, the Mama Cat:

Luna and Marchhare returned to their Rom. Luna set the snoozing Esper, and Sun Blossom, down by the fire. She then cast the counter spell, given to her by Baratted, to awaken the rest of the Rom for the ‘Sleep of a Thousand Lifetimes’ spell’.

“Nhm~” Puff grunted, as she, and the others woke up “What happened?” she looked around. “Who’s that?” she asked, spotting Sun Blossom. “And where is Fade?”

“Mother!” Lily gasped, rushing over to her sleeping mother. “How? How did this come to be?”

Luna held up a hoof. “Please. Everyhorse. Calm down.” She shook her head “Baratted came to the camp, and put you all in an enchanted sleep. He then took Fade as a means to strike at me.”

Puff gasped. “Wha-?”

“She’s fine.” Luna said, as she nodded at Esper. “Remember that dagger that Fade and De Writer found in Fade’s old world? Well, it was designed to draw corrupted energy from others.”

“It was?” Breeze asked.

“Yes.” Luna nodded. “Esper and Marchhare drew the evil magic from Fade, while I confronted Baratted.” She took a deep breath. “Suffice to say, Baratted saw the error of his ways. Sun Blossom is free, and everything is a it should be.”

“What of Baratted?” Lily asked in anger “Has he been punished for his crimes?”

Luna looked at her. “He has been tried, yes. Now-” She cast a spell, and Esper and Sun Blossom stirred, and woke up.“

“What? Where am I?” Sun Blossom asked as she opened her eyes. “Waterlily?” Her eyes grew wide “Lily? is that really you?”

Lily threw her arms around her mother’s neck, and sobbed loudly. Sun Blossom smiled as she hugged her daughter in return. 

“Oh, My dear Waterlily. My how you’ve grown in all these years.” She sighed happily, as she looked at Luna. “Thank you fro this.”

“No thanks are needed, Sun Blossom.” Luna said. “I was more then happy to help.”

“Where is Fade?” Puff demanded. “Where is my Wife?”

“She disappeared.” Esper said. “I drew the corrupted energy from her, and we were about to go help Luna. But, Fade felt like she wouldn’t be of any help. and left. All she said was that she needed to heal, and went off to find it.”

The sere wind blew from the baking stones and slithering sands of Celestia’s Anvil, the great desert to the east of the poor, withering town of Tadast’s Wells. The town was suffering under more than just the the heat. The drought was unrelenting.

A group of seven horses huddled in the tiny shade offered by the crumbling walls and dying fig trees of the abandoned farm. Hurt, puzzlement and shock in her voice, a chestnut roan filly, nearly grown, looked to the leader of the band.

He voice trembling, she asked with formality, “How can it be true, Rom Ina Callin? Can we really be cast out by the Master? We are good slaves. All of our work has been done as well as any work can be!

“It is no fault of ours that the crops do not grow. There has been no rain at all. Even the waters beneath the ground are failing.”

Taking a deep breath to steady himself and retreating into formality himself, for the strength of tradition, Rom replied, “It is true, Nore Bel Morin. All that you say is true.

“The Master was clear on that. The fault is not of our doing at all. If he felt that he had any choice, he would have kept us all. He has chosen to keep the last of his well’s water for himself, his mares and foals.”

Two of the band’s four grown mares, big Phapa and Malit, nearly as large as Phapa, finished shifting the shrunken boards of the well cover aside. The wood was so dry that part of it cracked away.

Sarel, a dapple gray mare, cast down a bucket that they had found abandoned by the farm’s collapsing house wall. The rope was stout enough to bring up water but all that came out of the well was a hollow thump as the bucket hit bottom.

Aranel the Cyborg aka, Wind, the Mama Cat:

The caravan of Caravans, now consisting of 50 wagons, and twice as many Rom, arrived at the Canterlot Fair grounds front gates.

The two week Pull had been exciting, and relaxing, to say the least.

Angel, thanks to the care and affection of her Rom family, and her Auntie Black Lotus, was now “cloud gliding”. The white filly with her metal wing would be carried to the clouds by one of her Aunts, and then, under the watchful eye of Black Lotus and her mother, Esper, she would glide from cloud to cloud.

She could also now lift her gilder under her own wing-power. Something that she was very happy about.

Sol, with the help from the Blitzwings, and with the astonishing growth cycle of phoenixes, had learned how to fly. Not only that, but with steady lessons from Marchhare, was speaking in Rom, Equestrian, and his native tongue of Phoenix. Bijou, along with Sol, took part in the Phoenix speech lessons, so, if she wanted, she could speak to her son privately.

Toffee had her fair share of lessons as well.

Her sword-fighting/training lesson with Waterlily were going well. While she wasn’t on the same level of skill as Angel, or Fade, she had mastered the basics, and was now practicing with Lily using their swords, instead of pieces of bamboo.
