fall reading

//I'm a black woman and most of my muses are black heroes (and I get a lot of racist hate for it). I must say, it is so refreshing to see more black muses in my dashboard. Black Panther is one of my favorite characters. I read his comics since I was a kid and I fell in love with him again in Civil War movie. How you portray him is seriously spot on. Thank you for make black roleplayers like myself feel good about themselves.

first off: you should never get any hate over playing a black muse(any hate at all tbqh - screw them. they are just jealous you are so amazing okay !!). honestly, it should be the opposite. i have seen a rise in poc muses & it makes my heart so happy (& many others to see their cultures being respectfully played out on tumblr) i remember years ago when i was writing bonnie bennett & there was literally no one outside of the white boy/white girl face claim. a few here & there but they weren’t really sought after.

secondly: i am really ecstatic that my writing/my portrayal has made you feel good about yourself as a roleplayer !! & especially considering you have been such a fan of him since you were a kid. you have made my year with this message !! the hugest compliment that i - through my portrayal - has created such a positive feeling. i am beaming !!

Because
I want to do
something
reckless,
dangerous,
extraordinary—
something
that will push me
out of my
comfort zone,
something
that will take me
far from where
I came from—
an adventure
that was like—
I’m walking pass
through the gates
of hell
but it feels
as sweet
as heaven
making me
gasp for air—

and yes,
it was
falling in love
with you.

So maybe,
I am waiting
for something
that will not happen,
yet maybe someday
I will be so happy
and surprise
by something
I could never imagine—

that’s when
the universe
will show
it’s love
for me.

i don’t know about you, but every time i step into the library, i am amazed again and again at how much knowledge is stored in a single building. there is so much to discover in a book; so much intelligence and creativity spilled in the pages and i just want to live long enough to read until i know at least a little bit of everything.

i’m sorry for all the blood i left on your lips / for loving you into ruin.
