  • Will: if we die I'm going to get Jem's ghost to teach my ghost to play the violin just so I can annoy the hell out of your ghost
  • Tessa: I'll just hire Gabriel's ghost to kick your ghost's ass
  • Gabriel: my ghost won't associate with your ghost

Today, my history professor made the mistake of announcing that she believed that you could categorize people into two groups: those that preferred Sound of Music and those that preferred Grease.

I have never heard a room of history majors become so outraged.

“–Grease SUCKS–”

“–excuse me but have you heard of our Lord and Savior PHANTOM OF THE OPERA–”

“–don’t talk to me unless it’s about Fiddler on the Roof–”

“–BOOK OF MORMON. BOOK OF MORMON. BOOK OF MORMON–

–did you mean Les Mis?–

And, me, in the corner with my Newsies shirt on (which was a perfect coincidence):

–neWSIES IS BEST–

why everyone should read 'rivers of london'/'the peter grant series' by ben aaronovitch

• it has been described as “harry potter for adults” but only if harry potter had actual, decent diversity
• if you like the works of terry pratchett or neil gaiman, you’ll love it
• the main character is peter grant, a biracial london police officer who one day accidentally interrogates a ghost and things just kinda go a bit wild from here
• the goddesses of the rivers of london are p much all badass black women (these characters also inspired one of my favourite songs)
• sahra “muslim ninja” guleed, the woman who joined the police on a dare, is the best thing to ever happen to me
• lgbtq+ characters are never used for shock value or tokenised and are treated the same as the cis, straight characters
• there’s a muslim trans woman of colour who can fly!!!
• it’s told from peter’s pov and he constantly calls white people out on their shit i love him
• deals with themes of ethics and immortality
• it’s genuinely entertaining and the suspense is great and i love it
AND FINALLY
• harry potter would have been much better if, on his first day at hogwarts, harry said “fuck me, i can do magic”

After getting those trial stickers prints today I have like 200% of energy. It like never happens and never holds this long. Yay!

So I finished casual Cassandra. I think I’ll sell those versions as postcards/small prints. Unfortunately they don’t look too good as stickers so I’ll remake them to flat colors and all should work out well.

previously drawn: badass Josephine, badass Leliana, casual Cullen

These kids at the bus were talking about Harry Potter

And just couldn’t figure out the name of the “green badass” hogwarts house, so I spinned around and /stared/ them dead in the eye and when the silence got rly awkward I just pointed on the hogwarts emblem on my shirt where it read: Slytherin.

And merlins beard, the look of pure fear and admiration they give this pierced teenager in a harry potter shirt was priceless.

Love is a decision, it is a judgment, it is a promise. If love were only a feeling, there would be no basis for the promise to love each other forever. A feeling comes and it may go. How can I judge that it will stay forever, when my act does not involve judgment and decision.
