Reasons everyone should read the Mara Dyer series
  • They’re really really good books
  • It’s a series
  • It’s not over yet
  • There’s a bi character who is mentioned as being at least attracted to both men and women
  • The bi character is also Jewish and black (look, queer poc!)
  • The prose is some of the best I’ve ever read
  • It somehow manages to strike a perfect balance between creepy/thriller/paranormal, funny, and realistic to the point of “ohmigod that’s totally something I would think or say”
  • I have no idea how the author manages that^ but it’s absolutely perfect
  • The author has a tumblr and has an amazing presence she reblogs all the edits and other cool stuff that the fandom makes, and interacts with and listens to the fans
  • She also posts deleted scenes and such on her tumblr which makes us very happy because everything she writes is so amazing
  • The author is also signing the entire first American printing of the final book in the series which comes out in November, which means that you could walk into a book store and get a signed copy at no extra price
  • The fandom is pretty cool from what I’ve seen we’re not crazy like some of the other fandoms but we make a ton of stuff including copious amounts of edits and even songs though I haven’t seen a lot of fanfic or fanart; I have no idea why
  • You guys this book series is good enough for people to write SONGS
  • There’s no love triangle
  • There’s still well-written romance
  • The MC is half-Indian (she takes after her Caucasian side in appearance) and there’s totally stuff tying into that
  • As opposed to most YA novels, her family is intact and supporting while still managing to be their very own engaging and interesting and complex characters
  • it’s really amazing, like, better than just about everything other YA I’ve read - or it’s just so unique I can’t possible compare it to anything other than the Shatter Me series. 
  • the final one comes out on November 4th so you don’t have to wait the two years the rest of us had to *sobs*
  • Please go read them they’re amazing and deserve more attention than they’re getting.

i have (finally) found some fancasts of mara dyer that i actually picture her like (i know she says she is fair but i don’t like disregarding her indian heritage so yeah):

Tasie Dhanraj/Tasie Lawrence is my ultimate fancast: 

but also naomi scott:

idk i’m just kinda tired of seeing her whitewashed as like crystal reed or kaya scodelario whilst they are both fairly valid fancasts and i know she is only half indian but i feel like her heritage shouldn’t be completely valid so yeah (also i’m half indian too and it’s so great and rare to find another character with teh same heritage as me sorry)

DHRFAVES; MUGGLE/AMERICAN/HIGH SCHOOL/POLITICAL AU

Featuring politician’s son!Draco and activist!Hermione. All of this is inspired by a lovely fic, bite marks by @provocative-envy, which everyone should read asap!

  • The Malfoys have been in American politics since Draco’s great, great, great, great, great grandfather Armand, who was apparently an aristocrat, crossed the Atlantic under the protection of the British Crown to oversee the colony of South Carolina. When signs of civil unrest led him to believe there would be a revolution, Armand quickly switched sides and managed to get a seat at the Constitutional Convention. Nearly every Malfoy since has either held public office or at least played an important role in shaping public policy.
  • Draco’s father has been a member of the US House of Representatives since he was like, 32, which means Draco was basically raised in the public eye. Which means campaign photoshoots after soccer practice, and hired bodyguards waiting outside the brownstone in D.C., and perfectly coordinated outfits and cufflinks and emerald green ties in Windsor knots, and GOP fundraisers with David and Charles Koch, and a long, long, line of Average Americans trying to suck up to him his entire life.
  • Hermione Granger is anything but an Average American. She comes from a half Indian, half American family of Democrats who drive Priuses and installed solar panels on the roof of their three story mini-mansion just outside of Arlington for like, energy efficient purposes, apparently, which irks Draco’s father and his Big Oil donors, and also probably the soul of his dead grandfather Abraxas, who was accused of some sort of racist hazing scandal, or something, when he played for Georgetown’s lacrosse team, back in the 40s. but.
  • Hermione is just really infuriating. She has a lot to say about Draco and his family history - like when their AP US History class did the Civil War unit, and she sourly noted that the current Malfoy estate still maintains slave quarters on their property, or that time during a chemistry club meeting when Potter suggested they set up a table on carbon emissions at the Student Activities Fair and Hermione gave Draco a dry look, like, would your dad be amenable to that, Malfoy? Seeing as he just voted against the President’s climate change action legislation last week?
  • The thing is, no one’s talked to Draco like this in his life. Not even Pansy, who’s about the bitchiest person he knows. Even the internship he took with his dad’s office the summer before senior year (where, to be fair, basically all he did was spend three months coercing Lucius’s aides into proofreading his college applications, lazing around drinking all the imported coffee he could find, and playing a fuck ton of Call of Duty on the 72″ flatscreen with Blaise and Theo in the conference room) prepared him for the onslaught of nastiness thrown his way by Hermione Fucking Granger.
  • He’s annoyed by this bushy-haired girl who doesn’t seem to have any respect for him, or his family, or their history. and he doesn’t get her. He doesn’t get her anger, or her fierce scowl, or her complete and utter disregard for the conservative values he’s been raised on, or the way her brown eyes flicker with specks of green when she’s about to win an argument. Draco doesn’t understand the sharp lines of her jaw when she throws her hair over her shoulder with a huff of indignation, or the soft curve of her waist that’s exposed as she reaches up to put some books away on the top shelf, or the quick half smile she flashes when she catches him staring.
  • But he wants to.
Medieval Indian Clothing Research, Potentially Exotified Indian Woman

@koalasonimpalas asked:

My story takes place in this fantasy world based kinda off of the medieval world, and there’s this girl who is leading a revolt against her half brother the king&stuff. So she is half Indian and half white& she’s gonna wear generally like medieval english&french styled outfits, but also represent her mother through accessories and accents that would be in India around the same time period, but I can only find like, ancient Indian accessories, but what were the trends like around say 1066-1452

Also, she’s the illegitimate daughter of a white King and an Indian mother. Would there be any way this could be kinda offensive, or play into stereotypes. I mean, her being illegitimate is a big part of the plot&I was planning on making the King currently unmarried when he has the relationship with the mother (and it’s actually like a loving relationship) but he can’t marry her because of her low station also she’s known for being beautiful and she has a low rank, could that be offensive?

I don’t know why you’re finding more on ancient Indian clothing than medieval Indian clothing.  Are these resources accurate in any way?  The truth about ancient Indian clothing is typically much more difficult to find.  Medieval Indian styles and artwork are very well recorded.  Two words: Mughal Period.

The whole illegitimate daughter thing could be difficult to handle and could easily play into the notion of the colonial or “exotic” concubine/loose woman of the East/some such nonsense.  Why does the mother have low rank?  Is it simply because she was “foreign” in a xenophobic society (you say this is fantasy, so when you say “Indian” I’m taking to actually be from an India-analogue) or because she had low rank in the society of her birth?  We have answered a number of asks on the Indian caste system before and so if this plot point is touching on something like that I would ask you to read this because that is a difficult topic to handle well.  It’s not completely off limits or anything, I’d just be careful how you handle it.  As a general rule of thumb, you can write about a racist society or racist characters but you as an author should be careful that you aren’t coming off as inadvertently condoning said racism, which is a hard trick to pull.

Hey Rosie ... First of all i love u n secondly im from India i read ur blogs/gifs which u reflagged actually .. Im not understanding one thing i wear all type of clothes like western n even suits i dont know if u aware of that dress.. N my mom wears a bindi n i dont ... So whats d big deal it wont change me as a person in any way.. Then its a problem when a foreigner in r country wears saree or bindi .. Ufff..

Hey!

It’s kind of hard to explain but I think it all comes down to political correctness and fear of being racist. But basically that Tumblr post was talking about how when white western looking girls wear sarees and bindis they get attacked. For example at loads of festivals this year it was a fashion statement for girls to wear bindi’s but then people judged them for it and attacked them, saying they are taking away India’s culture because they are not Indian and they don’t know anything about the culture and they are turning it into something it’s not and westernizing it.

But the thing is, the white girl in the photo wearing a saree was actually half Indian she just LOOKED white so people judged her and they judged her wrongly.

Also, although I understand why some people might say that not knowing about a cultural practice but practicing it anyway in a Western way COULD be a bad thing because eventually people may forget the real culture and reasoning behind it, I also think that fashion comes from many cultures and is influenced by different places and cultures. Our clothes must have been influenced by cultures like we wear paisley print and I swear that is an Indian print. So I think it’s fine for white girls and Chinese girls and whatever race girls to wear other races typically cultural clothes. 

If I went to India and Indians put me in a saree I would feel part of their culture but some people see it as a negative thing as if they are not accepting our western culture and trying to make us like them.

Basically, people need to chill the hell out and STOP telling other people what they can and can’t wear and judge them for it. Because that is stupid and there are bigger problems to worry about that other peoples clothes. Gosh.

Hope that helps and makes sense xxxxxx
