The thrift stores near me almost never have any religious decor apart from Catholic stuff, but the non religious decor? So much of it is gorgeous and perfect for gifts for the Theoi, or altar pieces in general. Do you know how many gifts I have seen that would be perfect for Aphrodite?? Let alone the stuff I got for Haides and Persephone today.
I’m honestly tempted to get them when I see them just to open up a shop of cheap decor and offerings for Them since I feel like stuff online is hard as fuck to find affordably for people always short on cash. Not anything big, just charge a dollar or two more than what I paid to cover gas and shipping supplies.
I'd like to ask, how do you know when fight/smut scenes are necessary? Or how to make them effective & not simply as fanservice or just for word count? Usually, I find myself skimming through fight scenes as a reader, bored. As a writer, I'm inclined to just 'fade to black' and imply stuff at the next chapters. I'm not really a fight/smut-scene writer, even though my characters know & need to fight. Thanks for keeping this blog. :D
