These are two of the three kittens the divine Ms. Bear and myself brought home today, because we can’t be proper authors without tiny engines of distraction moving things all over the place when we’re not around. The predominantly black one is Duncan and the gray one is Gurney.
Not pictures is their foster-sister Molly, who is a touch more feral and likes her hiding places, and we’re trying to ease her into her new home as gently as possible.
How quickly people forget that Natalie Dormer was in The Forest, a movie absolutely riddled with whitewashing, cultural appropriation, lack of Asian representation, Hollywood insensitivity, and the inter-sectional marginalization of mentally ill and suicidal Japanese people.
Needless to say I’m definitely NOT excited to see her all over my fucking dash because she’s playing Lexi T’Perro. :/
historical things for Hamilton fanfiction authors (and curious fans)
-we all know that there were other Schuylers than the ones in the play but the other sisters were born at the same time Eliza had Philip (and Angelica also had a son named Philip…)
-speaking of Angelica, she eloped with her husband who was in the US under a fake name and Philip Schuyler the first banned her from the house for years
-I’ll just say it now, there was Phillip Schuyler the first (PS1) who had the Angelica and Eliza (and others) and he also had a son named Philip (PS2) and to add to that Angelica had a son named Phillip Schuyler Church and Eliza had two sons named Phillip Schuyler Hamilton and those are just the ones that are important
-one of their brothers, Rensselaer, basically wasted the family fortune gambling and stuff
-Peggy wasn’t in take a break because she’d died at sea a few years earlier (and she was married to her cousin,,,)
-and while we’re talking Schuylers, someone loyalists broke into Philip Schuyler the firsts house at around the time Catherine Schuyler Malcom was born and legend has it that everyone was downstairs so they ran up, but they forgot baby Catherine so Peggy ran down and grabbed the baby and the intruders threw something at her but it missed and now there’s a crack in the railing
-later Philip Hamilton claimed he was the baby was in that story
-and finally, when Alex met Eliza, she was at aunts house in New Jersey for some reason which I only mentioned because everything is legal in New Jersey
ok no more Schuyler facts (they were all from the tour guide at the Schuyler mansion btw)
-(this is one I’ve noticed a lot) KINGS COLLEGE IS NOW COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY!!! they even have a statue of hammy there
-John Laurens met Hercules Mulligan about once
-And Henry Laurens, though he was homophobic and a slave owner was actually pretty centrist for his time (yikes)
-Jefferson apparently didn’t even read hamilton’s debt plan
-a lot of people think that Hamilton was non stop because his work was meant for 2 people (him and Laurens)
-James Madison only knew about 4 jokes and told them constantly
-Burr had a sugar momma after Hamilton died named Eliza Judal
-Aaron burr, sir takes place at the same place (Fraunces Tavern) as Your Obidient Servant and idk if I should laugh or cry
-People spread rumors that Hamilton Washington’s “illegitimate” son and by people I mean Burr
Request: A really cute fluffy Burr fic where he proposes?
A/N: My apologies in advanced for taking this nice, sweet request and turning it into my own personal drabble ship by giving the reader all my favorite things (author, dessert, engagement ring, occupation, etc.) I’m just in love with Aaron and couldn’t resist, okay? I really hope you guys enjoy this one, and Part 4 of If I Had My Choice is next! (Also, I just hit 700 followers, and I just really don’t know what to say besides I love you guys so much.)
DACA youth in DC ask Democrats to protect all undocumented immigrants.
This is notable she asks the current authorities for help and protection because they are still responsible for all the things that happen in this country. And this is really the main reason they’ve lost this year.
This is so simple to protect the people that need to be protected!
Hotch: How many boats are there on Lake Meade?
Kate: Come on. You just know that?
Reid: Yeah. There are 1,908 boats on lake Mead.
Kate: Where’d you get that number?
Reid: Based upon the population density of the area, I estimated.
Kate: You guessed. I mean, is this guy really a genius or does he just say things with authority and we all believe him?
Morgan: Thank you. Ten years! It took ten years for someone to finally have my back. All right Einstein - she just called you out. Bring it!
Reid: Look it up!
Rossi: I am. And the kid’s right.
Reid: I accept your apology. Blow it up.

This may go down as one of the most impactful books of the early twenty-first century. I’ve never been so pleasantly surprised with how a book has turned out. Rick Riordan is truly a gifted author and knows how to write fantasy while incorporating everyday issues and realities that we face.
Being an Avenger means continuing to be Captain America and smiling and being honorable for the public and Harry does his best. But it doesn’t give him time to figure out who he is supposed to be once he takes off his uniform and puts the shield to the side. Just being Harry had always involved Louis, and Harry fears he doesn’t know how to exist without him.
or: Harry is Captain America, and Louis’ been dead for 70 years.

Author’s Note: This has been sitting in my draft folder for a while. I wanted to write something for Kale, because she does so much for the authors in the fandom. This one is for you and all the things you do for us. xoxoxo
Aaaahh even though Tan Jiu says it’s okay at the end of the post I think they are actually pretty stressed.. I think in the process of enjoying the manhua we often forget how tiring it actually is to draw comics for a living (especially a long term serialisation). If you look at a typical Japanese mangaka’s daily schedule you will have an idea how insane a manga artist’s schedule is like. While I think Tan Jiu and Old xian have a bit more flexibility when it comes to their updates (since they don’t have a fixed release schedule for their updates unlike their Japanese counterparts), they still release chapters fairly consistently around once a week or once every two weeks so I believe they are always working hard. I think Tan Jiu really feels quite a bit of pressure and Old xian probably does as well (especially since she has even more fans than Tan Jiu). Let’s be patient when waiting for new chapters and hope the authors put their health above all things!!
at least one good thing: i texted all authors, who i could find, whose stories have been stolen by the person who also stole my fic.
“I found them on tumblr, I don’t own them” Does NOT give you the right to copy and paste a work to another social media without
Properly giving credit
asking the fucking author if you can actually post it somewhere else if you give credit
It’s NOT okay to just take another person’s work. We work hard on those, spend fucking hours, days, weeks working out plots of fics, fiddling through writer’s blog or just not feeling the fic, but you somehow have to finish it.
It’s okay if you want to share fics, but there’s other ways than actually stealing them. Even if you don’t take credit. It’s stealing and it’s illegal.
A simple gift of physical presence to Baekhyun’s most precious friend, Luhan, was what he intended to give when the elder requested him to go with him in his favourite author’s fan meeting in Seoul, in return of all the good things he and his family had done for him. That’s right, that’s how everything was supposed to be.
But Byun Baekhyun found himself in mercy of the not so humble, slash jerk and cocky Park Chanyeol the moment he spilled a glass of red wine on his brand new white Armani suit.
“You know the rules, princess, if you can’t pay for it with money, you have to pay with your body.”
“I’m sorry but my body isn’t worth of your suit.”
Admin Notes: another CEO!Chanyeol and commoner!baek sobs I’m really in love with office romance where ceo!cy chases employee!baek and baek plays hard to get lol this is really one of the fics recently that I’m always looking forward to for updates and the story is getting more exciting as secrets are being hinted and the drama unfolding;; - Admin Elle
shares that silhouette comparison which is supposedly of Horan
throws around general conformation terms in random parts of their Facebook comment dissertation
shares a picture of Rin Tin Tin (any Rin Tin Tin. The specific Rin Tin Tin doesn’t matter)
speaks with godlike authority on all things GSD confo despite having never attended a dog event - let alone a GSD specific event - in their lives, let alone actually put in the extensive, in-person study necessary to be able to accurately critique and evaluate conformation
ignores or is literally ignorant of the health issues of their own breed because lambasting ASL GSDs in an attempt to sound knowledgeable is more fun
currently very confused by claims that Alexander Dumas was a monarchist and the idea that he might possibly be considered Hugo’s enemy?? like I’m not arguing (yet) but I am super confused because it’s contrary to everything I’ve ever by him or about him that wasn’t like.. those posts… is there some secret stash of Dumas info I am missing, I Need To Know
Author’s Note: So, this is completely different from all the other things I’ve posted, and I’m a little nervous about it. It’s basically just something I wrote to comfort myself and I thought some of you guys might like it. <3 The title is from “Bowl Of Oranges” by Bright Eyes.
