otter book

saint-otter  asked:

I had a dream where someone had physical copy of hunger pangs (it wasn't called hunger pangs) and at the top of the front cover it said something like "from joy demorra, the author of [something on internet] and [something on internet], queen of the viral internet"

Oh good, the viral dream marketing ritual is finally paying off.

Seriously though that’s super cool haha, I wish my own dreams about my books were that positive…at the moment I just keep dreaming I lose the manuscript so I’m just like, backing it up everywhere. I may even print out some copies of the manuscript as it is now and mail them to parts of the world not currently flooding or on fire because somehow, a story about poly queer paranormal vampires, werewolves and demons (oh my my!) has become my literal life’s work and I will cry forever if anything bad happens to it at this final stage.

I’ve successfully sat down to write SIXTY days in a row! Slowly but surely writing my novel. The Scrivener App on my iPad makes such a difference, and the word tracker is both helpful and aesthetically pleasing. 

Shrimp ‘n’ Hotroot Soup

The signature soup of otters far and wide. This recipe is rather mild, for creatures like myself that aren’t partial to hot food. But if you’re an otter, or you dare to try and be like one- be generous with the curry powder, or consider adding chopped peppers.

2 tbsp unsalted butter

1 large onion, chopped

2 medium leeks, washed and chopped

1 ½ cups vegetable stock (alternatively 1 ½ cups water and ½ cube vegetable bouillon)

3 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped

1 tsp curry or chili powder

Salt and pepper, to taste

8 ounces shrimp or prawns, peeled and cooked, sliced if large

1 cup milk

In a large pot over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onion and leeks and cook, stirring, until soft, about 5 minutes. Don’t let the vegetables brown.

Add the vegetable stock, potatoes, curry or chili powder, salt, and pepper. Cover and simmer until the potatoes are very soft, 15-20 minutes.

Add the shrimp and milk and gently heat. Serve with crusty bread.

Here is a little illustration of Harry Potter with Hermionne and Ron. I wanted to test something, which is : What would happen If we mix their patronum ?
Well , they turned into an HYBRID !
In this case is half otter ( Hermione´s ) half dog ( for Ron’s ) and half deer ( for Harry’s ) ;)

title: like otters

fandom: the shape of water [upcoming film]

summary: “Long ago in school, Elisa read a book about otters: apparently, otters like clasping the hands of their companions while laying in water to keep them from drifting off. If they drift downstream, they go together.”

authors note: my days been fjdkfdksl today so i wrote some tSoW fanfiction; KEEP IN MIND that im writing this on 9/20/17 which is about a little more than a month before the movie comes out - so obviously, this probably won’t tie into the movie very well at all. obviously no dialogue, written quickly.
