my johanbeck fic masterpost!

I figured I should have a single place where every fic I’ve written can be found, since it can be so easy to lose track of posts. I’m going to link this in the header of my blog so it’ll be there as a resource for folks new and old, and I’ll update it if/when I write more. 

EDIT/NOTE: These now live at AO3 too, and they are updated + improved + in actual chronological order, so I’d encourage you to read them there! They’re split up between two series: 

  1. you, my compass and my sea 
  2. now we’re there, and we’ve only just begun

From oldest to newest: 

And here’s some good shit by other folks that you should totally read: 

More to come (hopefully)!

hustling-roses  asked:

how do you defend astrology to those who say there's no rhyme or reason behind it, that it's all nonsense?

World famous witch and astrologer Sybil Leek once noted, “All human beings have magic in them.  The secret is to know how to use this magic, and astrology is a vital tool for doing just that.” Access to astrology in the past was restricted largely by demonizing it, while the informed elite continued to use its services in secret; today advocates of “hard science” routinely debunk astrology, applying “objectively reasoned” test conditions in a context that does not adequately apply to the dynamic functionality of the art.   Astrology is the one discipline that can unite the cognate, sensate, emotional and intuitive realms with the phenomena of physical manifestation, not only as pertains to earthly affairs but as connected with the larger cosmos.  However unless one is strongly motivated to get past reading daily sun sign predictions, the personal empowerment available through utilizing astrological technique often goes untapped.(Marguerite Hafeman)

birdpaws  asked:

As a writer myself, I have a lot of cliches I hate. The cliche I hate the most though is when you kill off a character, then they magically come back like nothing happened. I've seen it done, and I only hate it when there's no rhyme or reason to it.

ikr? Killing off characters but then ~magically~ bringing them back diminishes the emotional value/toll and it stops being a consequence and more of a “let’s hurry up and get over this already”

Ten Fandoms

I don’t know how many mutuals I have that have 10 fandoms lol but if you wanna give your faves a shoutout feel free to do this!

like…deborah…your child is in the scribble stage, a stage of drawing development which is solely a sensory activity. Everyone who’s ever been around a toddler has seen them just pick that pencil marker crayon up and get hectic with it, theres no rhyme or reason, they’re not drawing anything theres no goal in mind, it’s just ‘holy shit look what i can do this thing makes COLOUR Its making a SOUND on the paper oh it smells and oh LOOK ANOTHER COLOUR and oh my god mum LOOK I CAN DO TWO AT A TIME AAAAAHH SCRIBBLE THERES SO MUCH HAPPENING AND I LOVE IITTTT’

and then deborah gotta come over like ‘noooo kaidynlee-anne your ruining my adult colouring book of healing mandala’s!!’ snatching it away before they try and teach them how to do it ‘right’.

or alternatively, another mum, lets call her susan, comes over and looks at this scribble MESS and goes “awww what have you drawn there??? is a puppy??? awww”

and little kids will mostly just be like…sure. yeah . its a puppy. because they can tell they’re being praised and that’s the good stuff yeah more of that, they’ll just go along with it. Guarantee dad might come over and look at the same picture and be like “awww is that a car?” and the kids gonna go yeah it’s a car. Its whatever you want it to be. means nothing to me.
