“Feminism isn’t about making women stronger. Women are already strong. It’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength.” -G.D. Anderson

In honor of International Women’s Day, here are some of my favorite female authors. Always keep fighting for equality. Demand respect. Never back down.

“Is that why? Why you’re here— why you don’t avoid me like everyone else.”

Bad boy! Mino, College AU, scenario of 4.5k words


It didn’t take much to put off the class more than it already was. I’m sure you’ll be pleased to know that I’ll be putting you in pairs triggered a groaning wave of disapproval from students to which the professor vacantly ignored.

Minho never understood what the fuss was, if anything it’s one less thing he has to worry about when group projects means no workload for him.  Group projects were the only blessings he believed in and it probably meant hell to whomever it was that gets the privilege of being his teammate. He pays no attention to the wary stares shot his way; three years of the same dirty looks had gotten old for him, not like he cared anyway.

Name after name fleets through the room, silent relief washing over students with luck on their side while the tension stretches for those still anticipating. Minho didn’t miss the brief murmur of surprise when his name pops up alongside another that he knew of, but not quite. Mostly because he’s shit at remembering names and making friends with anyone here was certainly going nowhere. Or it’s mostly because:  it was never a priority for him.

He’s waiting for that usual protest; the one where he gets kicked out of the group, as he preferred to put it, if his supposed teammate convinces the professor hard enough that is. And considering his reputation that isn’t exactly something to be proud of in the first place, it’s pretty much the case ninety nine percent of the time. For someone who doesn’t say much, it’s pathetic and flattering at the same time how quick word about him gets around. To have professors avoid having to deal with him just to save the trouble makes him wonder the kind of bullshit people has to say about him.

The class is dismissed and Minho stays seated, finding it funny how he’s feeling considerate all of a sudden. He’d usually be out the door before being told so. But the professor hasn’t called him up for a group change with a sugarcoated reason that he honestly couldn’t care less about. He begins to feel uncomfortable and awkward after giving it a few moments before muttering to hell with it as he snatches his backpack to briskly take his exit.

He’s barely out the door when someone jumps out of nowhere, halting his hurried steps as she blocks his way.

“You’re Song Minho right?” She chirps, staring at him with a smile that he finds a little too friendly, that, or it’s been a while since anyone dared to approach him so openly.

Photographer: The most challenging part of visiting these locations was the distance. I was trying to capture the area which looked identical to the photos without trespassing in areas that I shouldn’t have. There were a few times I got lost, especially in the more rural areas as the GPS and Google Maps were not always reliable. I spent around 4-6 hours a day on foot and a total of 12 hours a day, including the time spent on the train.

This is the source photo for the cover of the Gentleman’s Pact 12”/CD (a tour-only release). For the final artwork, I added a mosaic of chopped up photos from National Geographic magazines that my daughter Claire helped me cut out. A little reduced opacity in photoshop and that was that. I liked doing a sort of rough pixelation using an analog source.

They were on tour and stopped in Murdo, South Dakota to take these photos. There may have been some trespassing involved in this photo session, but that’s none of my business.
