best cat i ever lived with

URGENT: Cat Foster Needed

Since y’all have been the most incredible people in regards to helping me with my cat’s medical problems earlier this year, I’m hoping someone will help me with this in the next week–

I am in between places to live at the moment, and while my brother and sister-in-law have been wonderful humans in terms of looking after Henry for the past month, their own cat has not been getting along with Henry and so, since I can’t blame them, they want Henry moved out of their place by June 10th.

Which puts me in a pickle, since Henry can’t come with me where I currently live due to allergies.

So. If you live near Chicago/anywhere in the Midwest and are willing to foster a cat for a few weeks until I move to a place where I can have Henry with me, PLEASE let me know. I’m literally willing to drive Henry to wherever he’ll be looked after and, if you know anything about me, you know that I love Henry infinitely more than I love any human, so. 

Please let me know, and please reblog this to spread the word.

This cat is the love and light of my life, and I sincerely need help to make sure he’s looked after.

Please let me know.

Adulting 102

Welcome ya’ll to this weeks Adulting Masterpost! This week has been a mixed bag for me. As in, I have laryngitis but also a new job opportunity, and how I got either is beyond me. 

Shout out this week goes to @marshmallowdoritos and @quyenforthewin! Please go love them. 

1. Cactus decor. Cacti are super easy to maintain (most only need to be watered once a week) and look great anywhere you put them. Buy them from a supermarket that also sells plants as opposed to a nursery because they will be cheaper. 

2. Buy Febreze. Unexpected visitors are lovely, but not when your apartment smells like a baboon’s armpit. Febreze is affordable and lasts a long time, I use it on a weekly basis because I have two cats that love pooping when I have guests.

3. Baking Soda and vinegar are your one-stop cleaning solution for everything. Clogged drains, shower heads, cat pee stains, etc. 

4. Ladies. Have sex while on you’re period. I can’t explain why, but it will be the best sex you ever had. Science side of Tumblr please explain.

5. First floor apartments suck. I lived in a first floor apartment for a year and a half and literally will never live in one again. They’re freezing in the winter and damp in the summer. Don’t waste your time!

6. Can’t pay your electric? I was in serious to debt to my local apartment (after living in a first floor apartment) and told them that I was unable to pay my $850 debt because it was more than my month’s rent. They worked with me and put me on a special program called POP where they paid off my debt for me, so long as I continued my regular monthly payments. There are options, you just need to ask and be persistent

7. Don’t by olive oil. It’s sometimes three times as expensive as other oils like canola or vegetable oil. High quality olive oil can run you up to $25, if you’re buying olive oil for $4 then chances are it’s heavily diluted. 

8. Swiffer. Swiffer mops take up very little space in your closet, and you can buy store brand mop pads for a fraction of the Swiffer brand price. I’m especially partial to Shoprites pads, they smell so damn good.

9. Beaded curtain. Small apartment? Throw a beaded curtain in the hallway to make your apartment seem larger.

10. File your taxes as an Independent. Your parents are receiving a tax break if you’re filing as a dependent under them, but that tax break hurts you. You will end up paying more taxes in the long run, because the government thinks that your parents still support you. File as an independent if you are no longer living with them and supporting yourself, they loose the tax break but you (the starving college student) will not be charged as much by the state.

Do you think that Magnus ever summons Ragnor’s spirit to have long talks with him, because Magnus misses his best friend?

And Ragnor always acts like it’s inconveniencing him. “I have important things to be doing in the afterlife, Magnus.” But then he smiles, and they sit around and talk for hours on end.

Some days they sit in the living room, and Magnus always pours Ragnor a drink even though he can’t, y'know, actually drink it. And they talk about Magnus’s work, and his cats, and the Downworlders he’s always helping. And Magnus will talk about how things are going with Alec, and Ragnor will pretend to be uninterested in Magnus’s love life - though of course he’s listening to every word.

And some days they sit curled up in Magnus’s bed, when Magnus is exhausted from a battle the previous day, or he’s thought up some bad old memories, and Ragnor just holds him while he cries for a bit. Because there’s never been a time in Magnus’s life where he’s been afraid to cry in front of Ragnor.

Sometimes Raphael and Catarina come over to chat with him too, gossiping and laughing like the old days. And when Magnus is ready, he introduces Ragnor and Alec, who sit around and proceed to tell embarrassing stories of Magnus while he cringes in the other room and pretends he can’t hear, then comes in and tells embarrassing stories about the two of them of his own.

Reasons YOU should read the Abarat series

-kickass female protag who kicks the series off my running away from an abusive household in a shitty little town full of chickens
-and winding up in the most terrifyingly beautiful alternate dimension. Its like Alice in Wonderland on crystal meth
-the series plays with cool concepts largely unexplored by YA fantasy, like dark and light not necessarily equaling evil and good and the idea of a ‘fantasy’ world being slowly intruded upon by a 'scifi’ world
-representation everywhere. You’ve got PoC, LGBT characters, ladies as far as the eye can see (seriously this series fucking obliterates the bechdel test), commentary on racism and bigotry, people who are talking cats, people who wear fish on their heads, people who live in tanks of their own nightmares to cope??? Etc. Etc.
-the best sidekick ever seriously jesus bless Malingo you pure sweet child
- gorgeous paintings beyond your wildest dreams like seriously Clive Barker’s imagination is just full of horrific fucked up magnificence
-main villain is the King of the Fuckboys. Like seriously he’s a fucking mess who writes edgy poetry and wanders in graveyards for the aesthetic but trust me you’ll love him as much as I do I promise
-so many other cool nuanced villains and characters in general tho like I can’t even begin to list them all
-i need more people to cry about these books with

Reasons not to read the Abarat series:
-book 4? Is apparently never coming out?
-????
-can’t think of any others go fucking read these books rn

Turtle

request:  “Oh my god, I was joking, you didn’t have to buy me that.”

hello loves! the amount of requests I have seen for part two to ‘Bathroom’ has been amazing and that imagine will be coming tomorrow. so here’s some fluff to hold you over until then. this is honestly one of the funniest things i’ve written because it’s very silly! send in requests from this blurb list! or whatever you want! hope you enjoy!


In your humble opinion, turtles were the absolute best thing in the world. Ever since you were a little girl, you had wanted a turtle. All of the other kids wanted dogs, cats, fish, or even hamsters. But you wanted a turtle. But your family didn’t. So you never got one. ‘Twas a hard knock life for you without a turtle. Telling the story of how you wanted a turtle and never got one always resulted in someone saying, “That’s the most depressing thing I have ever heard.” But they were being more dramatic about hearing the story than you were when telling it.

      • (ideally: she’s going to be so hurt, and it’s going to break my heart, but she’ll understand. because that’s my bb space princess. she understands.)*
    • ‘when this is over, we go back to being enemies.’ ‘i look forward to it.’

    • ‘yeah, i’m good.’
      • 😘
    • ngl, i’m sad they didn’t manage to get through the ceremony. not that it means anything, BUT I WANTED THEM TO BE MARRIED.
  • RIP CATCO.
    • two days ago, @poppyssupergirl​ asked what kind of candle cat would have around, and I WAS 100% VINDICATED BY THIS EPISODE.
    • ‘i’m going to have to burn sage for like a century’
      • cat, let me get you the number of a journalist in riverdale who engages in casual occultism.
      • also, how does cat know what a west hollywood gym smells like?
    • ‘where is james olsen? this is the biggest story in the history of the world.’
      • NO ONE CARES ABOUT JOURNALISM ANYMORE, CAT. NO ONE.
    • ‘james is hiding like a coward.’ ‘and kiera? where is she?’ ‘she’s also a coward.’
      • because on no planet anywhere does cat not know, i like to believe that sometimes she just… forgets. that little face at the end is her brain reminding her because, oh yeah, kara is not also a coward. does not compute.
  • ‘i’ve got a very trusted agent on my 6′
    • MAGGIE IS THE VERY TRUSTED AGENT ON ALEX’S 6.

      • KARA MADE A STAR WARS REFERENCE.
    • ‘that’s my girl.’

      • SERIOUSLY, WHY DO YOU WANT HER????
    • ‘as your prince, i order you to lay down your weapons and let us go…yeah, i didn’t think that was going to work either.’
      • SO GLAD YOU FINALLY THOUGHT TO TRY SOMETHING, USELESS.
      • i really only mention this bit for the OH SO CASUAL WAY LENA JUST STROLLS BY, TAKES THE GUN, AND THEN SHOOTS THE GUARD NBD, AND IS LIKE FFS LET’S GO.
        • her stompy little wander off 😘

      • 😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘
    • ‘i can see why kara loves you.’ ‘likewise.’
      • *OKAY SO THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT. BECAUSE THERE ARE TWO WAYS TO INTERPRET THAT LIKEWISE.
      • 1. ‘i can see why kara loves you also.’ and thus, lena knows mon-el is mike.
      • 2. ‘i can also see why kara loves me.’ and thus, lena doesn’t know mon-el is mike, but she does know that kara loves her.
      • I DON’T KNOW WHICH ONE I WANT. 
        • because lena knowing kara loves her? be still my heart.
        • but lena knowing mon-el is mike? means she probably knows kara is supergirl.
          • or she’s a fucking moron, which i wouldn’t put it past this show to try to tell me.
    • ALMOST SPACE PRINCESS IS SO PROUD OF HER MACGYVERING THE THINGO WITH HER SPACE TIARA.

      • lena: LITERALLY DOESN’T CARE.
        • they’re going to try to tell me she’s a fucking moron. 😒
    • ‘you came?’
      • HELP ME. PLEASE HELP ME. SHE’S SO FUCKING STUNNED THAT HER GOD-AWFUL MONSTER OF A MOTHER CAME.
      • ‘humans only, dear.’
        • aaaaand that lasted all of three seconds.
        • lillian, please.
      • ‘i thought you’d finally see my side.’
        • GET OUT OF HERE, BRENDA STRONG.

Let’s Have One

Request: And imagine with Sirius please? Where he sees you with your baby cousin and he just adores how good you are with babies. And then the baby is handed to him and he is so well with her. He then decides he wants to have one with you. Thank you

***************************************************************************************

After completing school, Y/N and Sirius only got a few days to break in their new flat in London before Y/N’s family started asking for favors. On the third day, Y/N’s aunt asked if Y/N could keep her baby cousin for a few hours the next night, so on the fourth day, Y/N’s aunt dropped off the child at their new flat.

miskiess said: Here’s a challenge: see how many of the cats you can smuggle under your petticoat before your husband notices you have added new additions to your family! Ha!

You laugh, but I used to live near a used bookstore that actually had me do a cat check before I left, because the store cats thought hiding under my skirts and walking around with me was the BEST GAME EVER.

The Vallakovichs

I have an obsession with my bard and her husband and I don’t even care anymore. The necromancer power couple have now broken free of the mists of Barovia, and are tearing their way across the rest of Ravenloft, trying to forge a new destiny together. Right now they live in a little Vistani wagon, filled with skeleton cats, pulled by a skeletal steed, and I’m two sessions away from having her pay someone to paint colorful skeletal motifs all over the damn thing to match. I don’t think I’ve ever been THIS excited for a shippy thing before, and I feel so bad for my fellow party members who have to put up with them.

Full credit of Victor’s design elements go to @kokonakamelot … because that’s the best style of him by far.

Care and Feeding of Writers, Part the Umpteenth

Discussions of AO3 feedback often raise the question of “do pro writers also…”  And the answer is, yes, yes we do.  But our desire for and adoration of feedback is multilayered, with the odd and uneasy reticence that art+commerce creates…

the following was taken from a discussion on my Facebook page.

————–

I note we’ve stalled out with 24 reviews of THE COLD EYE on Amazon. They’re all wonderful reviews, so I can’t feel too bad about that, but I’m kinda hoping we can get more up there before the trade paperback edition and the third book are listed, she said wistfully…

(Goodreads has 73 reviews up, also predominantly good. I’ve love to see that hit 100)

Why is this important? Well, obviously, for my own egoboo. Never underestimate the kick in the pants a good review can give a writer to get back to writing (“they liked it! They might want more!”). It’s like a very public fan letter (I like the private ones too, yes). But even more than that, and more directly useful than that, reviews (and ideally positive reviews) are the best, most effective marketing tool anything ever gets. It’s not me you’re reviewing for, it’s the person browsing for their next book to buy. Lots of people saying “oh hey I liked this” is far more likely to push a sale, or at least get them to take a look at the book….

And the more we sell, the more I get to write, the better I can afford to do things like feed the cats and house myself, without becoming a burden on society and/or ending up living in my bestie’s basement…

(mind you, it’s a very nice basement, and comes with hot and cold running dogs, but still.)

LGBT+ Warrior Cats: Tallstar and Jake

(Spoilers!)

Gosh - after reading Tallstar’s revenge, this has to be my favourite pairing! There is definitely enough evidence for this to be canon - other than confirmation from the author - as they were way too friendly to be “just friends.” 

I’m currently making pixels for all of the characters I believe to be LGBT+, so look out for me! I’ll do a big post, sorting them out by sexuality :0 


“Jake touched Talltail’s cheek with his muzzle. “I’ll miss you.”
Talltail gasped. “Don’t go! Come with me! Come and meet my Clan!”
Jake stepped back. “This is where you belong, not me.” His mew was hardly more than a whisper.
“My home is with my housefolk. He’ll be wondering where I am.”
Talltail’s throat tightened. “Will I ever see you again?”
Jake glanced over his shoulder toward the far horizon. “Who knows? Maybe.”
Hope flared in Talltail’s chest. “Become a warrior!” he blurted. “You’d be great! You learned how to hunt so quickly. And you can fight foxes!”
Jake dropped his gaze. “No, Talltail. I wouldn’t be happy.”
“You wouldn’t be happy with me?” Pain stabbed Talltail’s heart.
Jake lifted his eyes. “I can’t live as a warrior.” He looked away, his mew cracking. “But I’ll always
remember you. You’ve shown me a life that I’ve always dreamed about. But now I know where I truly belong.”
“Then I’ll come with you and live in Twolegplace!” Talltail wanted to do anything to stop the pain in his heart.
“Don’t be rabbit-brained!” Jake’s eyes flashed. “You hate it there! You’d be so unhappy.” He paused, his tone softening. “I’d hate for you to be unhappy.”
“Then why are you leaving?” Talltail pleaded. “You’re the best friend I ever had.”
“I’ll always be your friend, Talltail,” Jake meowed. “But I’m a kittypet, and you’re a warrior.” He stepped forward and rested his muzzle on Talltail’s head. “You’ll always be a warrior.”’

after some reflection I decided that year 2 of Night Vale supplied us with the best lines ever:

  • “Did he say something?!?!?! …Was it cute??????”
  • “He is holding a cat.”

  • “Oh,” I said again, but softer, sadder – which is when he leaned forward and kissed me. Just once. Just…gently. Just before slipping out of the car and into the lab.” 

  • “Hello? Hello? I’m Cecil! Cecil Gershwin Palmer! And you cannot scare me! You cannot! You canno –…Hello?” (this was great because we found out Cecil’s actual full name)

  • “Did you know there’s a Faceless Old Woman who secretly lives in your home? It’s true! She’s there now. She’s always there, just out of your sight. Always just out of your sight.” (the first mention of the FOW!)

  • “Ahh ahh, I see. The sun is going out. Yes. A black tumor of darkness, of absence, is on the face of the brightness. The brightness is dimming. The source of all life is going, is joining the rest of us in taking today to do nothing.That’s probably not good.We should probably do something about that.But…it’s like…well, anyway. At least I got to see how Breaking Bad ended.”

  • Listeners, the only thing more terrifying than seeing the devil is no longer being able to see the devil!

  • “Trees,” she said sadly. “They are us,” she added, waving her hand lazily in the air, as if to shoo away a very slow bee.

  • “We’re getting more updates about those doors. In fact, I have a very important scientist on the phone right now. He’s at the very top of his field, a really handsome scientist!” 
    Stop!”

  • “Sad is not the land that has no hero. Sad is the land that needs a hero.” 

  • “Not one citizen outside of Tamika and her band of brilliant, brave, children stood up to tyranny today! We all chose to stand down, and hope change would be won for us, and not by us! By someone else, we believed. A hero, we believed.But belief is only step one. Action is step two. Fighting for what you believe is step two. Solidarity is step two. Unity is step two. We did not take step two today, Night Vale!And now there will be no step three!”

  • “I’ve got guests in my studio. I don’t know how they undid my secret barricade made of cardboard signs that said “KEEP OUT!” and “SECRET ROOM!” in all caps with an exclamation point “ 

  • BASICALLY THE WHOLE OPENING PART OF OLD OAK DOORS PART A WITH KEVIN AND LAUREN LIKE HOLY CRAP I CRY LAUGHING EVERY TIME
  • I’m not a hero. I’m a scientist! 
  • A scientist is always fine.

  •  Cecil, hey. Um, it’s Carlos.
  • I– I– I hate that I got your voicemail, but listen, I figured it out.

:)))

8 years ago, I saw a posting of a kitten who had hours to live before he was scheduled to be put down. My boyfriend said I couldn’t have another cat while I was living with him, so I moved out the next day. Best decision I ever made - I love this cat more than I ever loved him. 💕
