Would you consider pastel goth to be part of the goth subculture? :3 I'm trying to get into my local goth scene, but they won't let me wear any other color than black :c I love all things spooky, creepy and gothic. My house is basically decorated for halloween 365 days a year. But at the same time I love cute and cuddly things, like stuffed animals and glitter :/ Can I still consider myself goth? Yes I both listen to the music and read the literature Love your book btw <3

THEY WON’T LET YOU wear any other color than black? Oh, no. No, no, no. The people in your local scene don’t get to dictate that to you.

Pastel goth is indeed part of the goth subculture, and just because it is apparently a flavor of goth that folks in your local scene dislike doesn’t make it any less valid or spooky. Wear what you want, embrace your stuffed animals, coat yourself with glitter. If any of them dare voice their disapproval, smile serenely at them and remind them that they’re entitled to their opinions, but their opinions aren’t Goth Law.

Be warned - this may lead to their deciding not to spend time with you. But whatever, you will almost certainly be better off without people who are elitist gatekeepers.

(Also, Clovis Devilbunny (and the Evil Bunny Alliance, and the Fuzzy Cabal) stare uncomprehendingly in the direction of the people of your local goth scene. Do they not understand the importance of fuzzy companions?)

(Now that I’m home and not on mobile, I can answer some questions people asked on various photos!)

I made it! Now that I’ve figured out the tricks to making floral headpieces (fine-gauge wire and a glue gun), I want to make more. I NEED MORE ELABORATE THINGS TO PUT ON MY HEAD. And possibly spray with glitter, because. Just because.

vinceaddams said: How many of your stuffed animals have fangs?

Of the bunnies: Clovis, Morevis and Drevis (Clovis’ clones), Ravensbane, Jarvis, Harrison, Basil, and Merricat. (I just counted, and there are 13 other bunnies in the house. The Evil Bunny Alliance is ever-growing.) 

Of the bears: only Poohsbury and Basil. (There are eight other bears, including Gunderson and Murphy, the two oldest of my fuzzy companions.)

Goblins are awful to travel with - even if you have top-notch goblin wrangling skills, even if you resort to putting them all on leashes like a pack of over-enthusiastic puppies, they still go bonkers. Plus, you do not want to trust them with making coffee if you are at all … particular about your coffee, and by particular I mean don’t want your coffee made with actual ground as in dirt from a nearby planter. 

The Igor Union is still debating whether providing me with coffee is in the scope of their duties. Apparently they think that incoherent mumbling and beseeching looks while waving a coffee mug around aren’t clear enough instructions for what they need to do? Whatever. They’re wrong.

Hello there! I was just wondering where you got Clovis Devilbunny and Merricat Bunny? I've been through the tags, but I haven't been able to locate that information.

Clovis was an Easter present from my parents when I was 21, and was named for a snarky young dandy in the short stories by Saki. I already had a number of stuffed animals (some of whom I still have, hi there Murphybear and Gunderson!), but there was an indefinable something about Clovis that was special.A year or so later, I realized that of course, he was a vampire bunny, and needed fangs! So I spent the evening carefully trimming a pair of fangs from a spare set of plastic vampire teeth, and gingerly affixing them to my bunny. Once Clovis had his fangs, his personality became apparent, and everyone in my life (well, everyone who mattered) came to recognize that this little fanged bunny was … important. Not to be trifled with. Destined to rule the world. When the RealHusband and I were engaged and discussing wedding plans, it was the RealHusband’s idea to have Clovis be our ringbearer, with the wedding rings tied to his paws with silk ribbons, which was a sure sign that I was marrying the right guy. 

Merricat Bunny joined the family last September, after one of my goddaughters spent an evening piling all of her Jellicat bunnies on me, causing me to realize that *I* needed a Jellicat bunny, too!

Do some people think I’m weird or insane for having little fanged bunnies I talk to and take very seriously? Of course. I don’t care, and I kind of pity those people for having no sense of wonder or magic. Clovis thinks they’re ridiculous, and assures me that they will get what they deserve when he rules the world.
