Okay, here’s the next Emma chapter. I’m sorry it ended up taking so long to post - life got really crazy for about a week and this took longer to finish than planned. A little more backstory here and the next chapter will be the one we’ve been waiting for :) thanks for being patient with me. The reviews and flails are all so wonderful and they make my day! As always, all rights, characters, and my soul belong to OUAT.


“So you still don’t believe me?”

Emma nearly laughed at her father’s quickly drawn conclusion as he flopped down in the seat across from her. Peeking up from the recent issue of Time magazine she’d borrowed from her mother’s bag, she found the analyzing eyes of the man who’d just asked her something of a question.

“I never said that,” she replied with a sly smirk. “Just trying to process your new level of popularity. I guess I didn’t realize how much things have changed since I’ve been gone.”

His gaze was understanding and the tiniest bit concerned, almost as if he needed to hear that she was okay with this little venture. She’d assured him she was a few times over the past couple of days and even if it wasn’t totally honest, Emma knew it was the right thing to do. Normalcy was the next step in her father’s recovery process and if being in regular communication with a few members of the royal family fell into their now typical realm of “business as usual"….well, she would just have to learn to deal with that.

"It’s not that different, Em,” he started with a raised eyebrow. “I used to tell you all the time about how I was in the active ranks with the Queen’s son years ago. We were quite good friends even back then.”

“Yeah, but you also used to say you’d help slay the imaginary dragon under my bed,” she replied, matching his expression. “You can’t blame me for questioning what sounds like the stuff of embellished fairytales, Dad.”

Fun Home by Alison Bechdel

Overall Rating: 10/10

Brief Summary: This is a non linear graphic novel and memoir that focuses on the Bechdel family. More specifically, it focuses on Alison’s relationship with her father, and his tumultuous relationship with his family. Throughout the story, she also confronts the struggles she had with her sexual identity and how she connects that to her father’s death.

Writing Style: As this is a graphic novel, most of it is in dialogue. However, there’s a really good amount of author commentary. I thought that was really cool because a big part of creative nonfiction (memoirs, personal essays) is creating a good balance between author commentary and the other aspects of the work (scene, exposition, reflection). I didn’t think it would work as well in graphic novel form but Bechdel really pulled it off.

My Opinion: Early in the book, Bechdel mentions how her parents are real to her in fictional terms. This may sound confusing, but the way she uses modernism and modernist texts to understand the struggles of her father is genuinely mind-blowing. As a lover of reading fiction and a lover of the craft, I can completely connect to the idea of using the media we consume (books, TV shows, film) to come to realizations in our own lives. It was powerful watching Bechdel move through that thought process. Another thing I really loved about this is that a lot of the panels are modeled after real life pictures. Alison uses this to demonstrate who her father was in real life compared to how he presented himself to outsiders. Overall, I highly recommend this. It’s highly personal and very powerful.

Notable Quotes

“I employ these allusions to James and Fitzgerald not only as descriptive devices, but because my parents are most real to me in fictional terms.”

“Sometimes, when things were going well, I think my father actually enjoyed having a family. Or at least, the air of authenticity we leant to his exhibit. A sort of still life with children.”

“Concentrate harder.” Diarmaid barked.

Alexia clenched her teeth hard her vision blurred; such was the intensity of her focus as she cursed the elf to Earth and back. She did not have the ability to speak back so instead she glared angrily at him for a moment before focusing again on the task at hand. The sensation of fluid falling from her nose made her realise she was experiencing another nosebleed, so she ceased her training and began to walk away, rubbing the back of her hand under her nose to check, the blood smeared the back of it was bright crimson, so she simply kept walking to get a handkerchief.

“And where do you thing you are going?” Diarmaid asked as he watched her leave, his brow raised.

“Ever tried, ever failed. No matter. Try again, fail again. Fail better.” 


In which Hux helps Kylo find his feet again after a series of failed missions. 

So I’m not exactly the most sexually awakened person around but I can recognise when something is sexual. Audios from @yuurivoice definitely fall under this category. (yuurivoice does voice RP for Katsuki Yuuri; there’s also SFW stuff if you’re still a minor or at work, although I really wouldn’t recommend listening to them at work because you wouldn’t want to stop.) I was catching up on his stuff–the way you do when you’re trying to procrastinate and end up doing something actually interesting–and all of it is really good and although I’m not turned on by them I can see why people are, but one thing I didn’t understand at all was the daddy kink. I’ve said this before, but like why??? Why on earth would anybody have a daddy kink? What exactly is the appeal? Why on earth would you want to call your partner something you call your father? Isn’t that really weird??? I mean, it’s not the weirdest kink I’ve heard of, but this one just baffles me.

Someone: The Doctor and Clara are just friends.

Me: Cool, I get that.

Someone: The Doctor and Clara have a father/daughter relationship.

Me: EXCUSE YOU!!??? JUST BECAUSE THE DOCTOR LOOKS OLDER DOESN’T AUTOMATICALLY GIVE THEM THAT TYPE OF RELATIONSHIP. YOU MUST NOT BE WATCHING THE SHOW AT ALL AND JUST FOCUSING ON THEIR AGE DIFFERENCE WHICH IS RIDICULOUS BECAUSE THE DOCTOR IS ALWAYS MUCH OLDER THAN THE COMPANION BUT IT CERTAINLY DIDN’T STOP HIM FROM HAVING A ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIP WITH 19 YEAR OLD ROSE AT LEAST CLARA IS OLDER THAN THAT AND WHY WOULD A 24+ YEAR OLD NEED A FATHER FIGURE ANYWAYS? SHE ALREADY HAS A FATHER IF YOU SO DESPERATELY NEED THAT. WHO RANDOMLY FLIRTS WITH THEIR FATHER AND TELLS THEM THAT THEY WOULD HAVE MARRIED THEM?? PUT ON YOUR LOCATION SO THAT I CAN FIND YOU AND GIVE YOU ALL OF THE EVIDENCE OF THEIR ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIP I WILL EVEN SIT WITH YOU AND REWATCH ALL OF THEIR EPISODES AND IF YOU STILL DON’T GET IT THEN FIIIIIIGHT ME.

Welp, thanks to those fanon-destroying monsters at Hasbro, I no longer have a father….well actually I do, but I refuse to accept that over-obessive stallion who doesn’t have Rainbow in his name as my dad. To me, I will always be Rainbow Blaze’s daughter, and I won’t forget him like all the other Dashes in the Tumblr multiverse.

Goodbye, daddy. You’re little Dashie loves you will always remember you. Say hi to mom (Firefly) when she gets killed off as well.

Okay so I just got an anonymous ask and it was really sweet, they told me they love “father” and my writing style and it was just so sweet…

And then I, with my stupid head, tried to asnwer it on my phone and managed to accidentally delete it.

I know, I am an idiot. My sincere apolagies.

So, I’ll try it this way: Thank you so much for your kind words nonnie! People complimenting me on my writing make my week honestly and next time someone sends me something I won’t even try to open it on my phone, I’ve learned my lesson

Talking about my writing, I think I’ll have the end of my easter project posted here tomorrow, maybe even today if I’m really inspired. I think it’s coming along quite nicely after restarting three times (three times! in two days! uglh)

RS: Would Axl Rose make a good father?
Axl: Would Axl make a good father? Um… not yet. I love kids, but I think I would be too hard on them because… A lot of people say that when they’re raised a certain way, “I’ll never be like that with my children,” but then those things seem to come out, whether you want them to or not, cause that’s how you were taught to raise a kid. And I’m still wrestling with those things, and until I come to terms with them and feel like I could give a child the upbringing that it would deserve, I don’t want to attempt it. Like I’ve said before, I’m so much of a perfectionist I don’t want to attempt it and end up smacking it when I shouldn’t have, or something. I don’t want to give a child anything bad to look back on except for what may have happened in just the natural course of life. I don’t want to be in the situation of, “Yeah, well if I wouldn’t have locked him in his room…” You see, I get along with my father real well now. Actually, he’s my stepfather, but he raised me. But I see some of the pain that he has to go through in dealing with the way he raised me, and the pain that I have to deal with in getting along with my father, and thinking back on certain things that happened every now and then, and how mad I get. I don’t want those things to happen.

RS: Well, even good parents make mistakes.
Axl: Yeah. I just have a very short temper with things.

Hey Mollyhall, you alive? You doin ok? How are you feeling?

hello ma petite poubelle! i am doin a-okay. i have been a lil absent from posting Original Content™ on this blog because Real Life has been demanding a lot of my time and attention, and also i’ve been completely unable to do anything but listen to sam hunt’s “between the pines” with tiny water breaks for episodes of the vampire diaries, which is the most perfect trash garbage show in the world and i’m so???? furious???? that i haven’t watched it before now. 

ANYWAY as u can see i have a lot of pop culture catching up to do, as well as spending a lot of time staring at my ceiling and wondering which vampire diaries character i would be (bonnie if i had my way but, realistically, probably matt.) and which song from “between the pines” would be my theme song (house party). 

thanks for checking in!!! how are all of you beautiful moonbirds?
