i love crazy ex girlfriend because it’s not like “your ex isn’t crazy” it’s like “maybe she is crazy, but she still deserves love and happiness”
and it’s from the perspective of the ex girlfriend who has legitimate issues and doesn’t know how to begin addressing it all and it talks about how notions of normative heterosexual marriage and women’s happiness being tied to men (fathers and lovers alike) can really be damaging
Would you believe me if I said I drew this first out of all the prompts in the challenge? LOLOLOL I wanted to post them in order but I realized the fatesona child thing was also a prompt so… oh well. 😂😂😂
i have no idea if its true or not; for the sake of anyone who lives with him (myself occasionally included) i hope it is.
however. when he’s sleeping off a few injuries and is pain-medicated enough that its effective on his jacked up metabolism, he does.
which would not normally be a big deal. thor sleepwalks too, and the only problem with that is he sleeps naked. so i thought nothing of it when peterbird wandered into the common room late at night with his eyes closed. he kinda just showed up and then stood there, so i figured id let him be and went off to go make myself some hot chocolate. ten or so minutes later, i stepped around the divider wall back to the common room.
and promptly had the everloving daylights scared out of me.
why? you ask, why were ten precious years scared off your ridiculous life, bucky???
well. because parker was standing right on the other side of the wall, about two inches from my face. with an alarmingly vacant expression on his face. because he was sleepwalking.
I really love words, numbers, and Edgar Allan Poe’s Murder Mystery Dinner Party, so I’ve spent most of this weekend putting them together by analyzing the word counts of the Poe Party characters. Also I have no life. And I’m pretty sure no one cares. But just in case…
The (approximate) total word counts are as follows:
Constable Jim: 580
Constable Jimmy: 328
Constable Wesley: 11
Note: Screams were never counted as words, but I wasn’t super consistent on how I counted some of the noises certain characters (cough, Oscar, cough) make that are sort of but not exactly words, or how I counted stammering (if someone - cough, HG, cough - says “I, I, I” should that count as 3 words? Or just one?), but I figure for all intents and purposes this is pretty close.
I did not count the Epilogue or any bonus videos, or the little Oscar bit after the credits.
The character who talks the most in each chapter is:
Chapter 1: Edgar
Chapter 2: Edgar
Chapter 3: Mary
Chapter 4: HG
Chapter 5: George
Chapter 6: Krishanti
Chapter 7: Edgar
Chapter 8: Constable Jim
Chapter 9: Edgar
Chapter 10: Charlotte
Chapter 11: Eddie
The characters’ word counts by chapter are tracked in the following super-hard-to-read graph:
So Eddie’s ridiculously long villain monologue means he talks almost twice as much in chapter 11 as anyone else does in a single chapter.
I felt like it was kind of unfair to compare the word counts of characters who died early on to those who survived to the end, so I also made this chart taking into account how many chapters each character appeared in:
Chapters in which a character appears only as a corpse (or fake corpse), or in a flashback from earlier that evening, do not count; chapters in which a character appears only as a ghost, or in a flashback from before that evening, do. Example: George counts as being in chapter 6 but not 7; Eddie counts as being in chapter 10 (even though he doesn’t say anything) but not 2 or 3; etc.
Okay, this post is getting too long, but stay tuned for more charts and analysis coming soon!
I would like to propose a toast: To my partner, Seeley Booth…I know who he is, but I forget sometimes. Because- because he never shines a light on himself. He shines it on other people…Anthropology teaches us that, the alpha male is the man wearing the crown, displaying the most colorful plumage and the shiniest baubles. He stands out from the others. But I now think that anthropology may have it wrong. In working with Booth, I have come to realize that the quiet man, the invisible man, the man who is always there for friends and family- that’s the real alpha male.
So the Woodsman is pretty darn physically strong against the Beast. From the cartoon (I don’t know about any of the supplemental material), it seems like either before or aftet the Beast first tricked the Woodsman into thinking his daughter’s soul was in the lantern, the Woodsman attacked the Beast…and was doing so well that the Beast let him have it. And then, at the end of the show, the clearing in the forest is pretty wrecked by the fight between the Woodsman and the Beast by the time Wirt gets there.
It seems to bother the Beast that his soul is in another’s posession –he keeps asking the Woodsman if he’s tired of carrying it yet (with the added bonus that this threat to his daughter’s supposed soul jar keeps the Woodsman vigilant), and reaches for it when the Woodsman is distracted.
But the Beast also takes advantage of someone else doing the work of keeping his soul alight. It seems to be not worth his effort, at first, to overpower the Woodsman if he can deceive him. The same, perhaps, with Wirt, who has been shown to physically overpower the Woodsman.
The Woodsman wins, but he also loses. He defeats the Beast, but ends up in its thrall. Until someone else, not tied to ‘the lantern must stay lit’ survival mode (yet) can show him the way out.
Cruz is the type of girl who looks at the horror section of netflix at midnight absolutely convinced she won’t get freaked out and then it’s 2 am and she’s got every light in the house and and is googling ways to keep demons out on her phone and laptop
