i have a horse!

i really like the advice “write marginalized characters but don’t write about marginalization unless you experience it” 

absolutely i think cis people should expand their horizons and write trans characters, but they shouldn’t write stories about being trans. likewise i think allistic / NT authors should write about autistic characters! but not stories about being autistic. 

represent us. absolutely. but don’t tell our stories. let us do that.

I had a dream where I was at an Overwatch Q&A and I asked Jesse McCree ‘do you have a horse and if so what is their name’ and he looked super uncomfortable so I was like ‘do you not have a horse?’ and he looked even more freaked out and I was like ‘…do you know what a horse is?’ and he started to cry

Partner and I have been rewatching The Two Towers for the first time in a long time.

anyway, one thing that has always been weird for me is Eomer giving Hasufel and Arod to random strangers, just like that.  Just giving them away, two horses, to a trio of foreign travelers he just met and had suspected of being spies.

like.  what?  This is Rohan.  Horses are the thing you value above all else, I don’t care if their riders are dead, even if their riders don’t have actual heirs somewhere to whom ownership would pass (or Rohirric inheritance law works differently and ownership has somehow defaulted to their éored’s commander, IDK), you’re still a calvary force planning to see a lot more battle in the near future, chances are high you’re going to end up with horseless riders who’ll need them.

this time I actually processed the fact, though, that Eomer believes they’ve inadvertantly killed two innocents, prisoners of the orcs, the beloved companions of these travelers.

The horses aren’t a gift.  They’re weregild.

'Avatar: The Last Airbender' comic gets new creators, new designs
EW has an exclusive look at Faith Erin Hicks and Peter Wartman’s take on the fantasy world

VERY EXCITED to welcome Faith Erin Hicks as the new writer and Peter Wartman as the new artist of the Avatar: The Last Airbender comics with Dark Horse! Mike and I have been working closely with Faith on the next story arc, and Peter has been turning in some awesome early artwork (some of which you can see if you click the link above, as well as reading some kind words from Faith).

Mike and I are so grateful for the many years and beautiful books our former team—Gene Luen Yang (writer) and Gurihiru (art/color)—gave to the Avatarverse, and we wish them all the best in their many exciting future endeavors. We are so lucky to have had the chance to work with you three luminaries for so long!
