shining excellence


I have officially climbed over a massive hurdle. That massive hurdle of completing and graduating law school. It has been a long and tough road. From sleepless nights, anxiety attacks, and barely passing my first semester by the skin of my teeth. But all that seems insignificant, the moment I walked across that stage in all my MELANIN GLORY as I gazed upon my fellow colleagues. Realizing, my class (CLASS OF 2017) was the first class of my university to have the highest percentage of POC walking across that stage to receive their Juris Doctor degree. A university, where historically POC’s make up less than 15% of the population. So not only was this a momentous moment for me, but for those who look like me, and those who see me and feel inspired that through hard work and dedication, anything is possible!

For those that doubted me, those who claimed I wasn’t good enough, and those who my dreams will never become a reality… well to you, I say “Thank You!” You see your lack of support and intent to tear me down provided me with the ammunition that allowed me to overcome every obstacle law school hurled my way. I walked across that stage and claimed my degree, despite your doubt. . . I AM GOOD ENOUGH. My dreams will never become a reality you say? Many told me it was unrealistic to expect to obtain employment overseas straight out of law school, furthering that it was even difficult to obtain one in my own city. I can only chuckle as I sit here completing my visa application for a position in China I landed BEFORE I even walked across that stage. If you see no opportunity, then YOU must be the master of your own plan and create that opportunity.

Children Names Headcanon

Requested by anon: I love the baby headcanons you did with Credence, Newt, and Percival. They’re all so lovely and sweet (i’ve been reading them non-stop b/c they’re THAT good)! And it got me thinking, what would they name their kids? I keep thinking that Credence would probably name his daughter Cherish, or something.

I doubt you thought I would go all out Anon, but here were ones I could come up with for a good majority of the characters in Fantastic Beasts

      • Other than getting a little chuckle for using Credence’s actor name, there is an actual reason for suggesting that name. Christian’s name meaning is ‘follower of Christ’ while Ezra means ‘helper’ in Hebrew. For Credence I would think that even if he left Mary Lou’s control there would be some influence and he would choose religious types of names.
  • Girl
    • Cherish or Temperance
      • Cherish is means ‘treasure’ while Temperance means ‘moderation’ or ‘restraint’. Now Cherish was suggested by anon, and I love the idea since he probably would treasure any child that is his, especially a little girl. Temperance is similar to the reasons for the boy’s names of Mary Lou’s influence on him, but also as a reminder for restraint of his abilities and how he wouldn’t want to harm his child.

    • Lohengrin or Arthur
      • Now Lohengrin is a nod to the Arthurian legends that people headcanon Percival’s family for, as Lohengrin in those legends is actually the son of Knight Percival. Arthur, while also part of the Arthurian legends, has Celtic elements artos “bear” combined with viros “man” or rigos “king”. I can imagine that Percival would be very proud of his son and would likely give him the name that could mean king.
  • Girl
    • Elizabeth or Lynna
      • Elizabeth has the  meaning “my God is an oath” or perhaps “my God is abundance” which considering that people consider Percival to be loyal to MACUSA would have some sort of name regarding to an oath. Likewise it it is very strong sounding, something that I think Percival would appreciate. Lynna is an abbreviation of Lynette, a woman from the Arthurian Legend who accompanied Sir Gareth on a knightly quest in Arthurian legend.

    • Leo or Robin
      • So I chose animal type of names for Newt for obvious reasons, due to his interest in creatures but also in the British Wizarding world, there tend to be a lot of star type names in wizarding families. Leo is a constellation as well as the latin name for lion, so that would be the reasoning behind that name. Robin is a diminutive of the name Robert, which means “bright fame”, as well as the stories of Robin Hood. I would like to think that Newt would like the idea of stealing from the rich and giving to the poor as he is a very giving type of person.
  • Girl
    • Maia or Kestrel 
      • Maia is similar to Leo for being a constellation, however it also means  "great" in Latin something I can imagine Newt possibly name his daughter after. Also the roman goddess Maia was the goddess of spring, something very earthy and something that Newt would be all about…I think. Kestrel is from the name of the bird of prey, and I thought it it’d be cute.

    • Phoebus or Matthew
      • Phoebus means ‘bright’ or ‘pure’ in latin, something Tina would name her son because he’s pure in her eyes. Matthew was similar as the name means ‘Gift from God’. I would think for Tina, that maybe having a child, especially with her line of work that she would consider the child to be a pure being and a gift. She sees a lot of bad things in her line of work, seeing a child as a blank slate is something she would do.
  • Girl
    • Zoe or Alexandra
      • Zoe means “life” in Greek and from early times it was adopted by Hellenized Jews as a translation of Eve, which apparently from my research Tina and Queenie were (possibly) were Jewish, so I can see either of them using this name, but for the sake of different names, Tina would probably use that name. Alexandra is a the feminized form for Alexander, which means defender. Given Tina’s occupation, it would be a cute name for her daughter.

    • Nicholas or Lucas
      • Nicholas means “victory of the people”. Given her and Jacob’s relationship, I could see her possibly wanting to name her son Nicholas, as he would be a victory of their relationship that is considered forbidden in her society, that even in such a forbidden romance, that they could create a child. Lucas means "light-giving” or “illumination”, meaning her son would be almost like a beacon. Given her personality, it wouldn’t be too far off base that she would give her son an uplifting name.
    • Girl
      • Kayla or Cassandra
        • Kayla means keeper of the keys or pure. With Queenie’s kind personality, I could see her naming her daughter a name that means pure. Also keeper of the keys could be a parody of Queenie’s ability to open and read minds, and her daughter would ‘hold the keys’ to that ability. Cassandra means "to excel, to shine”. Similar to the boys names, I could imagine Queenie wanting to name her daughter as something that shines as she loves her daughter and sees her as this bright being.

    • Alfred or Isaac
      • Alfred is derived from the Old English name Ælfræd, composed of the elements ælf “elf” and ræd “counsel”. Considering that Jacob was introduced to the magic world, where elves are exist (they may not be pretty, but still they exist) I could see him doing something like that. Plus it would make his comment about liking house-elves so it’s relevant. Isaac has the  meaning “he will laugh, he will rejoice”. Given Jacob’s personality, I could so imagine him having named his child after laughter or rejoicing. Also, for him and Queenie, there would be rejoicing for having a child together.
  • Girl
    • Ruth or Keren
      • Ruth means “friend” in Hebrew, and likewise, seeing as how Jacob was such a good friend to Newt and the others, I could see him naming his daughter after a meaning that stands for friendship. Keren means “horn” or “ray of light” in Hebrew. Similar to how Queenie would name a child after being a ray of light, I could picture Jacob doing something similar. With Queenie, it would mean how their relationship created such a miracle. For a more personal reason, I would think Jacob would name his daughter about a ray of light after going through WWI and losing his brother through that.

What are your favorite creepy things to read or watch?

You have come to the right place, anon, for weird and creepy things… 

To read:

  • Stephen King short stories. Not his novels. His novels are like he got paid by the word. His short stories, or even his novellas, are amazing. 
    • Check out The Boogeyman, Secret Window Secret Garden, and Carrie if unfamiliar with his work.
    • Additionally, though it differs greatly from the book, Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining is an excellent film. Perhaps it just creeps me out because I saw it as a kid but even to this day, those twins in the hallway give me the heebie jeebies.
  • Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.
    • Honestly, this is just because I love scary folk stories, which most of these are taken from. I also grew up with this book series. If you can, get one with the original illustrations. The stories by themselves aren’t all that scary but with the illustrations they are given a whole new level of creep. I mean, thanks to that book I’m still kind of afraid of elevators.
  • While we’re on it, reading about Japanese and Korean legends can be terrifying as well. Just thinking about the Slit Mouth Woman makes me want to never walk outside at night again, even to get my laundry. Folk stories from all kinds of different cultures are not only educational, they are often good for when you’re looking for creepy stuff.
  • Creepypastas, but be selective.
  • I couldn’t find a link directly to it, but one story that gave me straight up nightmares was George R.R. Martin’s The Pear Shaped Man. Same author who’s famous for Game of Thrones really knows how to deliver some sugar frosted nightmares. 
    • While we’re on the topic of the unexpected, did you know King used to write fantasy? Yeah. Weird right?
  • Creepy stories are best told at night
  • The Dionaea House is chilling. I highly recommend this one.
  • A lot of Neil Gaiman’s work is quite creepy. If you can get a hold of it, I recommend the series of graphic novels known as Sandman. Note: Not for kids, MUCH mature/adult content.
    •  Also, he wrote Coraline and The Graveyard Book. Both kids books that aren’t just for kids.
  • Clive Barker doesn’t get praised for it very much but he’s a horror master. In fact, when I was reading Weaveworld there was a scene that was so graphic I had to stop reading it altogether. Warning, though, there is rape in this one, in addition to birth, molestation, and just… it’s definitely not for kids in any shape or form. But if you like it, also check out Imajica.
    • Also, a kid’s book by him that’s truly creepy is The Thief of Always. And he illustrated it so bonus! 
  • Annie96 is typing is a modern classic. 
  • Feed the Pig is narrated here and I think it’s amazing. Mentions of suicide and other graphic content warning. 
  • The Strangers, another good nosleep story. 
  • In fact, just check out Nosleep’s podcast. Full of awesome creepy content.

To watch: Youtube / Vimeo

  • I love Seriously Strange by Rob Dyke. In addition to being creepy, you also learn a lot.
    • He’s also got a series about serial killers. 
  • Speaking of learning, the Youtube channel Ask a Mortician is quite educational, though it will squash some myths you might like to believe in. 
    • The creator of this channel also wrote a book titled The Smoke Gets in Your Eyes: Lessons from the Crematorium. I have yet to read it but it’s on my list.
  • No Through Road, an excellent short film. Warning blood. 
  • He Dies at the End.
  • FNAF Sister Location Trailer. I actually think the trailer was a lot scarier than the game. Very well done, even if you aren’t into the games (I have no room to talk, I’m reading the second book right now) you can respect the artistry.
  • Playing with the Devil, based on a real Japanese ritual which I will NEVER partake in. 
  • Self Assembly. Which I would like to put warnings on, but they’d be spoilers. This literally kept me up the other night. 
  • The Horton Mine. Not a scary film but someone’s real experience going into a probably haunted mine. 
  • The Cat Piano. Also one of the most beautiful pieces of animation I’ve seen online. 
  • Vincent, a short film by Tim Burton.
    • I couldn’t find it on Youtube, but Tim Burton also released a live action short film called Frankenweenie, which inspired his recent animated film by the same name.
  • The Smiling Man. Try walking home in the dark after this. 
  • Miracle Fish.
  • Lastly, Alma.

Also, Imgur is full of lists of good creepy films. 

To watch: Netflix/ Amazon

Note: Many films listed have mature, possibly triggering themes, please look up triggers and protect yourself!

  • The Witch
    • I can’t rave about this movie enough, for real
  • The Shining
  • A Clockwork Orange
    • Books is good too, but much less on the creepy side
  • It Follows
  • Train to Busan
  • Midnight B Train
  • The first episode of The Walking Dead
  • Night of the Living Dead
  • Dawn of the Dead
  • Sean of the Dead (more funny than scary)
  • The Blair Witch Project
  • 10 Cloverfield Lane
  • American Psycho
    • Which is also a book
    • While we’re on it, read Fight Club, not because it’s creepy but because it’s great literature
    • moving on
  • Coraline
  • Paranormal Activity
  • Don’t Breathe
  • It Comes at Night
  • American Horror Story
  • The Twilight Zone
  • Hush
  • The Babadook
  • 13 Sins
  • Would You Rather
  • Wilfred
  • World of Tomorrow
  • Rosemarys’ Baby
  • Insidious
  • The Conjuring
  • The Ring
  • The Exorcist
  • V/H/S
  • MTV’s Scream
  • The Fly

And because you’ll need a laugh after all this, Young Frankenstein. 

I hope this helps you on your quest for creepy!

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Fic: Redemption and Roses

By @torestoreamends

13.7k words, G rated

Astoria Greengrass hates Draco Malfoy, former Death Eater, and all round prejudiced asshole. It takes a year for her to change her mind, and another year to fall head-over-heels in love with him. This is the story of how it happens. 

I had the idea for this fic a while ago. I thought wouldn’t it be cool if Daphne introduces Astoria and Draco at a party, and wouldn’t it be even cooler if she starts off hating him, while he’s besotted with her from the first moment. It’s taken me a while to get round to writing it, but here we are! I will admit, as Astoria fell in love with Draco, I fell in love with the two of them as a couple. I think they’re wonderful, and I hope some of you will agree. 

Massive thanks to @abradystrix for betaing this, and thanks to @platinasi for flailing with me and being generally supportive while I wrote it. You’re both superb human beings.

So earlier tonight I was in a bathroom stall in my dorm and a few drunkish guys came in. They were being pretty loud but relatively copacetic so I was gonna let it slide.
Then one of the dudes busts out of a stall and says “yo what the fuck is this bullshit on the doors”

He was referring of course to the anti-sexual harassment posters on all the stall doors that tell everyone how to notice the signs and report and all sorts of quality, much-needed info.
I went to stand up and yell at him but stopped cold when one of the other dudes says, completely seriously:
“Sexual harassment.”
But he said it in a sort of “shut up bro you don’t know what you’re talking about” way.

First guy; “that’s bullshit”

Second guy: “no it isn’t, man”

Third guy: *dead seriously* “it happens, people need to be informed.”

First guy: “whatever”

Third guy: “what if I just grabbed your dick right now, what would you say, huh?”

First guy: “I’d call you a faggot.”

Now at this point I stood up and looked over the stall and said “you can’t fucking say that word. People die every day because of it.”

Third guy: *pleasantly surprised* “I was just about to say that.”

Second guy: “yeah, man, we had this conversation earlier.”

Third guy: *goes to fist bump me but hesitates* “wait have you wiped already?”

Me: “I’ve been in here like ten seconds, you’re good.”

Third guy: “aight man *bump* have a good night.”

It made me so fucking proud to go to my college knowing that drunk frat boys are here educating their stupid friends about consent and decency. Keep shining, Wooster.
And stay excellent, unnamed hammered guys.

Heaven is a Place on Earth  Joker X Reader

“I can see my baby swingin’

His parliaments on fire and his hands are up 

On the balcony and I’m singing  

Ooh baby ooh baby 

I’m in love”

“Come on baby it’s getting to hot in here” I heard him say glancing around the loud and glittering club, seeming to distrust everyone in the room. Some sort of silent exchange was made between Frost and himself due to the eye contact he made momentarily with Frost who only nodded back.. I slowly turned my head to him releasing myself from romantic thoughts of him and I that danced in my head. I smiled looking into his scared and tattooed face. His blue eyes met my green ones for a weird second before he came to a stand. He looked sharp as always. Black dress pants a crisp white button up. I swooned inside watching him walk so perfectly through the crowd taking my hand when I started to fall behind; being to busy caught up in how the muscles in his shoulders flexed as he moved. I held his icy cold hand firmly in mine; his grip was relaxed yet seemed to be ready to pull the trigger on any funny man that tried something. I giggled saying  ‘funny man’ out loud to myself. What an odd way to describe someone. The bouncers pushed the doors open and we entered Gotham’s cool night air that sent shivers up my exposed legs. “Where are we going honey?” I said playfully. He smiled then kissed my hand. “Oh just for a little drive” he said walking to the drivers side of the Lambo. I nodded becoming weary of the situation. It was always a toss up with J I never knew if he was ditching a scene to avoid a ‘vacation’ at Arkham, possibly a beat down from batsy or he was finally going to cut my neck and leave me to dry like he always threatened when he was angry. I swallowed hard noticing the two armed thugs standing behind me. I looked to J who was still standing by the drivers side in a trace, eyes locked on the ground. “Baby what’s going on?” I said weakly. Maybe this was it. He looked at me something sad coming to his face. “Nothing doll” he said “Get in the car so I can get you home. I’m not losing my doll again” I nodded compliantly getting in the luxury car his word echoing through my head. Lose me again? 

Two or three months ago I had been taken by Black Mask being used as a hostage until J, like the good man he is agreed to kill the mayor of Gotham. Since Black mask lacked the means to do it himself he needed J to do it, being he was gifted in anything having to do with murder though not gifted in being bossed around. If J completed the task Mask would return me safely home. Ultimately the plan failed miserably. I was locked in a damp basement for I think about a week until one day the steel door on the joint was blasted off of it’s hinges. Frost stepped in with a machine gun taking out the two creeps that guarded me then ushered for the other men to come down, J came down last making him vulnerable for one of Mask’s men to stick a gun to his head, which they did. All and all guns went a-blazing and Black Mask escaped the shoot out. Maybe he really did miss me? I bopped myself on the head dismissing the silly thoughts, my presence was an option for him not a necessity.   

J took no time starting up the car and jamming it down the street. The sheer power of the vehicle slammed me back in my seat ripping my focus from my thoughts. “J what the hell” I said smacking his shoulder. There was an odd silence between us until our eyes met putting a smile on both of our faces. This turned into giggles and in a few minutes we were two laughing maniac’s zooming down 12th street. “Oh baby” he said caressing my face with a smile. The lights from the buildings we drove past threw a sort of beautiful Aura around him. I smiled back leaning forward connecting my lips with his. 

The moment we made contact it was as if everything exploded. All my fears and insecurities gone with the touch of his icy hand and sound of his purr. We continued on kissing (and driving) until there was a violent crunching sound and I found myself being hurtled through the air. My eyes only connecting with the night sky, squinted a little trying to avoid their horrible glare. This was an unfamiliar situation usually I loved to gaze up and see the twinkling lights of other worlds but my eyes couldn’t take it. The initial impact of the ground didn’t hurt being so my brain was still trying to comprehend why the stars were acting the way they were. Then the sliding began and suddenly none of that astronomical mumbo-jumbo mattered. My skin felt like it was being lit up fire then dosed in chemicals over and over again. All 115 pounds of me slid a crossed the black top only being stopped when my head smacked off a brick building knocking me temporarily unconscious. When I came to I could hear gunshots around me but no person came into view, until I saw a black caped figure stalking towards me, his eyes seeming to glow a blue color. My heart quickened as my arms attempted to drag me away from him until the pain hit. I screamed in agony looking down at my body. Parts of my arms and legs were completely skinned and bloodied seeming to create a pool of my own life source below me. He scooped me up looking quickly round him before firing what I now know to be his bat-claw “J!” I screamed looking down below as the Dark Knight whisked me through the air. I spotted J for a short second he was slumped up against his car completely still. “Baby!” I screamed fighting Batman’s grasp. I kicked my legs and writhed around until I broke his hold falling freely down until I found myself rocked by a black nothingness. 

For a quick second I thought I was dead; my eyes opening to be stared down by a fuzzy light above me. Was this heaven? To my dismay it wasn’t A pretty brown haired nurse came and stuck a needle in my arm. “Ow lady watch it” I said weakly. She simply smiled at me and continued about her business. Sorely I looked around the room it was that of any basic hospital. A beeping machine stiff white blankets, the smell of cleanser. The only difference was I seemed to be in a sort of solitary confinement room. It was completely cement and had a heavy metal door locked tight instead of the flimsy blue curtain they usually had. I peered through the little window that that was on the door spotting the bat’s black cowl. Anger vibrated me and I felt my legs coming to a stand forcing me to run to the door. “I’m going to kill you Bat-freak let me out of here!” My bloodied fist pounded on the glass until I felt it crack underneath my fist. I smiled a sense of encouragement enabling me to hit harder until I was able to crash my fist through the window my hand grabbing the first throat I could. It was the nurse that had poked me before, the bat was completely gone. Most likely due to the fact he wasn’t there to begin with, only being a figment of my imagination. 

A week ago I had a nail technician due my nails longer and sharper for no reason really besides I saw the ones Cat women had and thought eh why not try something new? J when he saw them held my hand in his a mischievous grin coming to his face. He wrapped his arms around my waist and pulled me in tight. “Whaddya say we go in the back and break those puppies in? hmm?” I laughed kissing him on the lips as he lifted me up laughing as he made his way to our bedroom. I grew sad at the memory digging my nails deeper and deeper into the nurse’s neck hoping that maybe the harder I squeezed he would come strolling down the hallways machine gun in hand, Frost to the side of him taking out any loser that came at them. Her warm blood trickled in between my fingers making it harder to keep my grip turning her whimpers into deafening screams. 

A team of cops suddenly lined up in front of the door. Their guns drawn. “Open the doors boys and the lady gets to keep her neck” I peered into the cops faces recognizing one to be Jim Gordon. He was talking harshly into a walkie talkie. “So what are we supposed to do let this crazy bitch walk free. She’s practically got a staff members throat completely ripped out.” Whoever was talking on the other end seemed to easy Jim’s conflict which worried me. Was my Price okay? Was this one of their tricks where they say if I cooperate I could see J but when  they let me out he’s laying dead of a stretcher. My nostrils flared, anger boiling in my stomach. “Okay boys you have one more chance let me out of the nurse is going to have a serious throat ache.” I watched the police their shoes shining excellent off of the polished speckled floor. Gordon nodded giving the ‘go ahead’ nod to an officer who opened the door. I stepped out smiling at Gotham’s finest dragging the nurse with me. “Now could any of you tell me where my Prince is?” I made steady eye contact with every officer. They kept their justice loving mouths shut. “Fine then” I said squeezing the nurses throat harder. She fell to her knees with a scream. All the police officers lunged forward looking to Gordon for directions. I locked my eyes on his. “God dammit. Y/n stop. He’s in route to a different hospital.” I smiled at him “See was it really that har-” everyone’s attention was pulled away when the hospital doors flew open revealing a patient with pale skin and green hair.. 

My heart dropped “How in the- Why is he here” Gordon shouted talking excitedly into his walkie talkie.Everything in my brain broke loose not being able to fathom the emotions the coursed through my body. My grip tightened on the nurses throat until I was able to completely tear a section of her jugular clean out. Blood splattered a crossed everyone’s faces. None of that mattered though my legs broke out into a full sprint. “J!” i screamed. He looked back. “Y/n!” he sat up quickly and took out the doctors surrounding him. I was just feet away from him. No not feet inches both of us reached out our hands about to touch when I was pulled back. My eyes looked down to see two nightmarish rubber black arms then up to J. “No!” he yelled trying to fight the swarm of cops that was subduing him his eyes looking into mine with panic? or fear swarming in them. I called out his name over and over again until a pinch on my arm brought me back to the nothingness I had just broken out of.
