I was tagged by belligerently to list my top ten favorite characters (one per fandom) HAHAHA what do I even like.

Suzanne Sugarbaker (Designing Women) The one, the only.
Leia Organa (Star Wars)
Dana Whitaker (Sports Night)
Dana Scully (The X-Files) never met a Dana I didn’t like.
Jessica Drew (Marvel Comics)
Prue Halliwell (Charmed)
Anya Jenkins (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
Jean Grey (X-Men movies)
Tamsin (Lost Girl)
Samantha Carter (Stargate SG-1) what if sometimes it’s Vala though, would Christine lose her mind???

I am probably forgetting a thousand important people because making lists is hard even though women are never so happy as when they’re making themselves a little list (last night I had to watch Sports Night because I was feeling emotionally compromised by Mass Effect being over, and that’s the one I watched and I was so pleased.)  ANYWAY if you too like making lists of things that you like, you should do this.

anonymous asked:

hi azra, just wanted to know if you have any favorite lines from all the fragments/proses/poetry you've written?

  • If we are a moment, let it be: now and now and now.
  • Did I say that there is a meadow in my stomach?
    Did I tell you that you were every flower inside of it?
  • Because with you, inside of her, it’s sunrise. With you, inside of her,
    it’s alive.
  • To lie in the warm expanse of your back,
    to kiss those sun-speckled freckles,
    to be warm and gentle together,
    to drink you into honey.
    That’s all.
  • How you touch me,
    and oh, how I burn with it.
  • Take your knees from the floor.
    Don’t look at him.
    Something violent
    and brutal and ugly
    is howling inside of you.
    Act like it.
  • I tell the ocean to make itself smaller, we argue. I tell it please, I am in love, and it allows me to palm it in my hand and hold it tightly there. 
  • Redemption is the house of your body and how the tenants left and how quiet it was inside of you.
  • You’ve got your hands up and you’re praying to him like he’s a God but he’s no God. He’s just a man. And he’s only loving you like half of one.

33 Books That Every Badass Woman Should Read

​33 Books That Every Badass Woman Should Read

“Through books, women have been teaching other women for generations. Our female ancestors had it pretty tough, but they still managed to grace the pages of books in style, shutting down the patriarchy left, right, and center. These 33 books showcase some of the best badass women, real and fictional, of the last few centuries. After all, where else can we learn but from the best?” - Emma Oulton
