online findings


I DIDNT EVEN KNOW I WAS CLOSE!!!! Awww I remember when I only had three followers, one of which was my best friend, *sigh*. Thank you all for sticking around with me! I love every one of you and I hope you have a wonderful week! *Hugs and kisses all of you because you deserve it*  :’)


Cover art to Rats Tales issues 1, 2, and 3.  There’s very little information on fanlore that I can find for this series.  It appears to be a multimedia spinoff series from another Fanzine called Star Rat, about which I could find nothing.  Star Rat was apparently a ‘zine dedicated to Doctor Who, Blake’s 7, and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.  All of those series are present in Rats Tales as well, alongside several other fandoms.

I have no idea if there were any issues of Rats Tales beyond 3.  It’s a British zine; does anyone in the UK know more about it?

The front cover of issue three is by Amanda Kear, the back by Ian Colledge, and the inside back by Roz Barnes.  Issue two front and back is by Paul Richardson.  Issue one is uncredited in the ‘zine, but is likely Paul Richardson as well.

Talking with writers online

Their stories: Amazing grammar, soaring vocabulary, beautiful imagery and prose which flows like a river.

In chats: no capitalisation or punctuation, swears like a sailor, misspellings everywhere, acronyms and abbreviations every five words, idek


I found an etsy shop that sells texturized spinner rings. You can fully customize the ring. The price of them range from $8-10, which is a very good price for something like this (in my opinion) considering I haven’t seen spinner rings like this before. I’m probably gonna order one (or two) for myself once I go on my next online shopping spree.

(Also, this shop has other really nice fidget/stim items up for sale)


Happy Birthday Leigh Daniel “Dan” Avidan! (March 14, 1979) → “Don’t make fame your goal. Make your goal doing what you do to the best of your ability, and that’s something no one can take away from you.”

“Dan is one of the best human beings I’ve ever met in my life…if Dan says you’re cool, then you’re cool.” ~ Arin Hanson

“Danny is literally the worst person I know…one of the least talented and most selfish people I’ve ever met. I also think Danny is a total diva.”  ~ Brian Wecht

“Danny is a cute motherf*cker.” ~ Vernon Shaw

“He’s like 7 feet tall and a palm tree of hair.” ~ Barry Kramer

“I peer review Dan all the time. I look at him like ‘His thumbs look stupid’. I mean Dan looks like a big f*cking muppet, you know.” ~ Ross O’Donovan

“I would say Dan’s whole personality is badass positivity. He’s an awesome rock star, a hyperactive 8-year-old, and the world’s wisest oldest man, all living in the same brain.” ~ Phoenix Carver


“There are days when I’m just kind of overwhelmed by all of it. And I think that that’s okay.”


2/ favourite fictional characters → CHO CHANG

“obviously, she is feeling very sad, because of cedric dying. then i expect she’s feeling confused because she liked cedric and now she likes harry, and she can’t work out who she likes best. then she’ll be feeling guilty, thinking it’s an insult to cedric’s memory to be kissing harry at all… and she probably can’t work out what her feelings are towards harry anyway, because he was the one who was with cedric when cedric died, so that’s all very mixed up and painful.”


WELLLLLlll okay it’s not a shirt, but only because the original image itself was an odd dimension size and a bit too small and resizing it would have made it blurry when printing on a shirt. BUT when I get a bit of free time (pffttttcute Xedra, ‘free time’) I want to remake the image to be of a high enough resolution to print on a shirt. :D

But I do love me some mugs, so I’m more than pleased as punch right now. A mighty thirst indeed ahuhuhuh~ :D Thanks so much, @asrielisdeadandfloweyisabitch <3
