Can I just have a lot of Levi and Eren absentmindedly touching each other? Eren scratching lightly at the base of Levi’s skull, Levi palming the soft fabric of Eren’s shirt, them leaning against each other whenever they’re close enough. I want them so comfortable with each other that they’d just lean, and meet the other person - there’s no bubble of awareness to separate them, just skin on skin, dry palms against a forearm, the surety of a grip on a shoulder, and the knowledge that neither is alone while the other is there.


We’ve got 6 members that have talked to me about being interested in joining the Dual<3Sign team for HSWC.

But I’d love to know if there were more people interested in joining us!

New to HSWC? Start here.

French Toasted Thoughts

Sometimes when I am sitting in my booth at Denny’s, I start to wonder how I got here. Like, where do we come from? And why are we the only species that is aware of our own mortality? Is our life some pre-determined track and we’re completely helpless to change or stop it, or are we free spirits and our destination is our own choosing? Is time reallllly a flat circle?! Are flying squirrels reallyyy necessary? Do regular squirrels really need that extra skin? I mean, they’re already agile. Isn’t that a bit much? And why were sad clowns ever popular? And why should I care about someone’s feelings when they clearly made a poor career choice? Who elects to be horrifically sad? But then my French Toast is delivered and all of that goes away. Because priorities.

Here’s, I guess, Part Two of My previous post in color. It’s the freakin Columbia River Gorge and it’s totally gorge(ous). Pun very clearly intended, despite how bad it was. Here’s pictures… what do you want… if you’ve been, you know and if you haven’t been, there’s nothing I can type which will convince you to go more than the pictures. No matter what, you need this in your life.

Dear Asthmatic Patient

who refuses flu shots because “like 1 in 5 people get sick when they have a flu shot and I can’t afford to get sick because I have asthma.” 


Little aches after getting the shot is not what I mean by “sick”. When I say you will get sick with the flu, I mean you will get hospital sick. Like ventilator sick. Like maybe die sick. It makes me sick even thinking about the fact that someone would refuse a potentially life-saving vaccination.

Also - if you are going to continually interrupt me with nonsense and refuse to even listen to me explain basic science to you, please don’t ever ask me for medical advice for anything. Because clearly my education means nothing to you. I don’t expect you to agree to the shot, and that’s your choice, but at least respect my education and knowledge base and hear me out when I try to explain something so that you can make a decision with the most information possible.

Immediately, the black morphed into a collage of colors, swirling along the lines in warm reds and purples and blues. When he placed her hand over one, the other went bright gold. Oh. They were her hands, on his hearts.

Is there a word for the thing where someone gets away with terrible behavior by being terrible in such bizarre ways that no one quite believes it or knows how to respond to it?

Like, if someone hits you that’s clearly an assault, but if they pour a jar of strawberry jelly over your head, that’s unwanted and unpleasant and malicious but you just have no playbook for this situation.  If you go to the authorities they’ll either laugh or be at a loss for how to respond, and if you try to deal with the person directly, “don’t pour jelly on my head” just feels too absurd to even say.

I need a word for this, because it keeps happening in my life and a word would make it a lot easier to put these incidents in a shared context instead of just a confused blur of “I think that was a bad thing but what the hell even just happened?”

Over the next few days we’re going to be sharing some of Karen Hallion’s ridiculously fantastic artwork for “Wizard School.” We’re starting with the Scorpelican, a monster that our wizards may need to fight, if they lose, the terror of seeing such an unpleasant mixture of creatures will scare a magical friend out of your hand. 

You may have heard me (Hank) mention the Scorpelican both on Titansgrave and on an episode of Dear Hank and John with Grace Helbig. People wondered where it existed first. The answer is neither…the Scorpelican was originally created for Wizard School, and I have clearly been unable to remove it from my head since then. It’s wonderful (and a little terrible) to see it brought to life by Karen and I can’t wait to battle one of these things in the halls of Wizard School.

Follow us here at for more exclusive art later this week!

Real life is a funny thing, you know. I think most of us fear reaching the end of our life and looking back regretting the moments we didn’t speak up. When we didn’t say ‘I love you’. When we should have said 'I’m sorry’. So there’s a time for silence, and there’s a time for waiting your turn. But if you know how you feel, and you so clearly know what you need to say, you’ll know it. I don’t think you should wait. I think you should speak now.”
