I was going to make something really nice for your birthday, @markiplier, and I spent hours working- working on a drawing of your face, and then one of Chica, and then I tried one in an Animal Crossing style for some reason, and then at one point I think I had a Darkiplier phase- but everything just looked horrible.

Then I panicked and drew a pigeon. 

Sorry Mark.

I hope you like the pigeon anyway. His name is Henry. 

“Are any of the levers marked?” said Ponder, scrabbling through Leonard’s sketches.
“Yes, but I don’t understand them! Here’s one marked ‘Troba’!”
Ponder scanned the pages, covered in Leonard’s backwards writing. “Er… er…” he muttered.
“Do not pull the lever marked ‘Troba’!” snapped Lord Vetinari, leaning forward.
“My lord!” said Ponder, and went red as Lord Vetinari’s gaze fell upon him. “I’m sorry, my lord, but this is rather technical, it is about machinery, and it would perhaps be better if those whose education had been more in the field of the arts did not…”
His voice faded under the Patrician’s stare.
“This one’s got a normal label! It’s called ‘Prince Haran’s Tiller’!” said a desperate voice from the omniscope.
Lord Vetinari patted Ponder Stibbons on the shoulder.
“I quite understand,” he said. “The last thing a trained machinery person wants at a time like this is well-meant advice from ignorant people. I do apologize. And what is it that you intend to do?”
“Well, I, er, I…”
“As the Kite and all our hopes plunge towards the ground, I mean,” Lord Vetinari went on.
“I, er, I, let’s see, we’ve tried…”
Ponder stared at the omniscope, and at his notes. His mind had become a huge, white, sticky field of hot fluff.
“I imagine we have at least a minute left,” said Lord Vetinari. “No rush.”
“I, er, perhaps we, er…”
The Patrician leaned down towards the omniscope. “Rincewind, pull Prince Haran’s Tiller,” he said.
“We don’t know what it does–” Ponder began.
“Do tell me if you have a better idea,” said Lord Vetinari. “In the meantime, I suggest that the lever is pulled.”
On the Kite, Rincewind decided to respond to the voice of authority.
“Er… there’s a lot of clicking and whirring…” he reported. “And… some of the levers are moving by themselves… now the wings are unfolding… we’re sort of flying in a straight line, at least… quite gently, really…”
“Good. I suggest you apply yourself to waking up Leonard,” said the Patrician. He turned and nodded at Ponder. “You yourself have not studied the classics, young man? I know Leonard has.”
“Well… no, sir.”
“Prince Haran was a legendary Klatchian hero who sailed around the world on a ship with a magical tiller,” said Lord Vetinari. “It steered the ship while he slept. If I can be of any further help, don’t hesitate to ask.”

Offer for my US followers:

If you call your senator this week (i.e. while it’s still June), I will make you a 10 minute doodle. (e.g. the top 2 pics.)

If you call twice - or call more than one of your national legislators, I will draw an art card instead and send it to you. (e.g. the last three pics.)

To claim:

  1. Email me (pentapoda@gmail.com) with who you called, your tumblr name, and your doodle request (a character or pairing, no NSFW). I will not share any information about your geographic area on Tumblr.
  2. Post that you called your legislator somewhere, I don’t care if it’s Tumblr or Facebook.

(Also if this form of bribery appeals, I will try to do it once a month, but I have no idea of anyone will take me up on it. XD)

I honesty can’t wait for these two to reunite on the show. Arya deserves to be with her brother one of the only people to ever love her unconditionally. I can’t wait to watch them kick ass together. 

At some point in the near future I plan on making it into a watercolor painting.

 I didn’t mean to make it a Jonrya photo but I feel like I accidentally did.

Spread the Love: Writers

There has been a large amount of hate floating around Tumblr lately. I can’t stand it! There’s too much ugly in the world for people to spend their time on hate.

Especially in a place that fosters love and creativity. It kills me even more to see seasoned writers deciding to call it quits because the amount of hate makes it “just not worth it anymore”.

So in spite of all of the hate, I have decided to make a post about love. Love for my fellow authors. The beginning of this year, I decided to take my love of Supernatural and start writing my own stories inspired by the show (I know, what an original thought!).

Then I hit a wall and started doing online research. And then I wondered if other people did stuff like this too (imagine my surprise!). Then I read…and I read and read and read. Finally I was inspired, and encouraged, by other writers to post my own works. And here we are today.

So in honor of all of that, I present to you a small list of just some of my favorite writers, why they are my favorites, and some of their writings that I adore. This is not an all-inclusive list and I will be making more posts of love for my fellow authors. Because you all deserve the recognition, even if from little ol’ me. :)

@deansdirtylittlesecretsblog - In the start of my fanfiction reading adventure, Mimi’s blog was actually the first I came across and the first I followed on Tumblr. Being a hardcore Sam!girl myself, her writing has made me reconsider Dean, and now I’m terribly confused (thanks so much for that BTW!). Some of my favorite works of hers include: Jealousy Is a Green-Eyed Hunter (love me some jealous and possessive Dean), Primal Urges, The Arrangement - These are all Dean fics.

@saxxxology - If Mimi is the authority on Dean (in my mind), then Saxxy is the same for Sam (like two sides of a VERY sexy coin). Her writing is so enticing, and often deliciously dirty. She keeps my love for Sam going strong, reminding me why he was/is my fave all along (sorry Mimi). Some of my faves: Witches Are Bitches (part 1 Dean, part 2 Sam), Baby (still the HOTTEST thing I think I have ever read in forever), Jealousy (I think I may have a jealousy kink?! I’m seeing a pattern.), and like a million others…cause she’s just awesome-sauce!

@cleverdame - Her stories are gripping and compelling. I love her series work, because she has so much detail and you can tell a lot of thought goes into every aspect of her writing. Some of my faves: East of Nowhere (if you haven’t experienced this, drop whatever you are doing and go…right now!), Sam Winchester A/B/O (yes, all of it. Every last one is amazing in it’s own right. Moonlight is my personal fave. More please?!)

@kittenofdoomage - What list would possibly be complete without Rhi? She is the Queen of A/B/O and she wears her crown well. Anything she does, I’m chomping at the bit to consume it. Faves: Iron Heart (duh, of course! Is this not one of the best stories written, ever?!), Cosa Nostra (I had a hell of an emotional rollercoaster on this one), and her latest piece D.W. is just, it’s…deliciously depraved is the only proper explanation I can provide.

@bringmesomepie56 - I have never been disappointed by anything she’s written. I’ll read stuff I wouldn’t normally just because she wrote it. True story, I was doing a random search of stories and was liking what I found and after a short while I realized every one I like, came back to Arie. She’s incredible! Faves: The Forgotten Series, Just Friends.

Keep being awesome, friends! I look forward to many more of your works. And I will post more love for my fellow writers in the future. Spread the love, not the hate! Thanks for reading!
