Plum Bun: A Novel Without a Moral is a novel by Jessie Redmon Fauset first published in 1928. Written by an African American woman who, during the 1920s, was for many years the literary editor of The Crisis, it is often seen as an important contribution to the movement that has come to be known as the Harlem Renaissance. I discovered this from an article by Morgan Jenkins in the New Yorker. “Initially, Fauset’s work was dismissed as sentimental and Victorian, primarily because she dealt with ‘women’s issues,’ centering on the marriage plot,” Cherene Sherrard-Johnson, a professor of English at the University of Wisconsin, said. Fauset’s second novel, “Plum Bun,” is probably her best, and it received the most attention when it was published, with reviews in The New Republic, the New York Times, and Saturday Review. Overtly conventional through its employment of elements and techniques of traditional genres such as the romance or the fairy tale, Plum Bun at the same time transgresses these genres by its depiction, and critique, of racism, sexism, and capitalism. The heroine, a young, light-skinned African American woman called Angela Murray, leaves behind her past and passes for white in order to be able to attain fulfilment in life. Only after she has lived among white Americans does she find out that crossing the racial barrier is not enough for a woman like herself to realize her full potential. The detailed description of her coming of age makes Plum Bun a classic Bildungsroman. Angela must come to grips with her colored and white racial heritage, as well as with her femininity (stereotypically seen as sweetness), before she achieves psychological wholeness. Although African-American women were typed in popular song as “a little brown sugar" or a “jellyroll,” Angela had to cease thinking of herself as a purveyor of feminine sweetness for sale, and instead step into new roles with inherent value.

I’m putting this here so that I can immortalise this on my blog… and probably remind myself to write this one day. UNLESS SOMEONE WHO’S BETTER AT WRITING WESTERNS WANT TO WRITE THIS FOR ME???

Much thanks to @sheriffbaird​, @pyresrpgear​ and @justlook3​ for the character roles! (And especially to Pyre for that asskicking name BLACK SNAKE GULCH GANG I LOVE IT TO BITS)

Also included in headcanon:


  • Jake hides books on poetry behind his clothes and Ezekiel snoops around his house and finds them.
  • Jake teaching Ezekiel how to lasso and the outlaw ends up lassoing him. 
  • SHOOT OUT BETWEEN GUNSLINGER CASSIE AND BLACK SNAKE LAMIA (Cassie wins but she just wounds Lamia, not kill her.)
  • Flynn hiding Moriarty when Dulaque finds out the traitor isn’t dead which leads to Moriarty mortally wounding Dulaque when he tries to attack Flynn in a bid to get answers (and Flynn’s grateful to him for saving his life… very grateful. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ) 
  • Sheriff Baird’s unofficial partner is Gunslinger Cassie… just because she finds it fun. (Also she gets to shoot people)
  • Sheriff Baird teaching Doctor Flynn how to ride a horse (because he has no idea how to)
  • Madame Morgan randomly popping by Jenkins’ bar just to bitch about rowdy/cheapass customers she had to throw out the night before
  • Jezekiel making out on hay

One minute she was in the Impala with the Winchester brothers, deciding on how to catch the archangel Gabriel, and then then next she was sitting in a panel, surrounded by various fashion designers and celebrities.

“Judges,” Tyra Banks said from her right, “Have we come to a decision?” The former model looked at her expectantly.

What I would love to see in season 2 of The Librarians:

  1. More Jassandra
  2. Ezekiel backstory
  3. More of Jake acting like an excited little boy (because how cute was his reaction to Excalibur?)
  4. More Flynn
  5. Lamia not to be dead
  6. More Cassandra kicking ass
  7. Jake showing off the mad singing skills we just know he has to have (and Christian Kane has said that if the show gets renewed we would probably see this)
  8. More Morgan le Fay
  9. More Ezekiel/Jenkins relationship
  10. More of any pairing, really, because everyone on this show just has so much chemistry

What I will settle for:

  1. A season 2
