If you like so much to read (watch movies) with strong woman protagonist, I recommend to read a webcomic (not based on true story, of course, but it has a great female protagonist and is all over cool -and not only one woman, but a lot of female characters there are pretty strong and well written), a steampunk fantasy webcomic (if you like this genre) called Girl Genius, written by Phil and Katja Foglio. Its free to read and you can find it on its website. Great stuff.

I AM A DIEHARD FAN OF GIRL GENIUS.

It’s like my favorite thing. I hooked my ex-roommate on it just so I could fansqueal with him. I would come up with fan theories and stuff - I was convinced for the longest time that the invisibility device they use to escape from Castle Wulfenbach in volume two was actually the time machine, but that appears to not be the case. My last two phones have been named Otilia and Castle Heterodyne. I reread “opera week” (Wulfenbach vs the circus) on like a weekly basis. I’ve been fiendishly devouring thrice-weekly updates for well over 10 years.

So yeah. Girl Genius is the business.

(weirdly enough, I believe my parents knew the Foglios in passing - my folks were fairly well-established Kentucky SCA/con folk in the 80s, and I remember them mentioning the Foglios once or twice, back when they were doing Myth Adventures, What’s New, and Buck Godot. I also recall my dad mentioning that my brother and I made some sort of cameo appearance in one of Richard and Wendy Pini’s works, but I’ve never been able to figure out which one. This may have been my overactive childhood imagination misinterpreting his words though.)

(this may have been the hardest I’ve ever publicly nerded out.)

Michael: what? find my pun shockingly good?

Jeremy:…..

Michael: Are you staring at me because I’m strikingly good looking?

Jeremy: Adios asshole

7 days prompts (summer fair)
  1. You took the last bag of cotton candy so you’re either going to share it with me or I’m going to fight you for it.
  2. I don’t like heights but my friends pressured me onto the Ferris wheel, don’t laugh my knuckles aren’t that white from hanging onto the bar.
  3. My friends convinced me to get on stage at the karaoke stand and apparently I can’t stop staring at you or sing oh no.
  4. You yelled when a pig in the petting zoo nibbled your pant leg and that only made it charge after you and I can’t stop laughing.
  5. I’m not lurking around the photo booths like a creeper, my friends are in one of these booths and I don’t know which one.
  6. One of the rides spun a lot faster than you expected and your shoe fell off and hit me in the head what the heck
  7. Look you seem like a nice person so I want you to know this booth I’m watching is rigged don’t waste your money
  • Me, as a child watching Disney Channel shows: Oh they're so cool, I hope I can be like them when I'm in high school!
  • Me, as an adult watching Andi Mack, a Disney Channel show: OMG THESE SMOL CHILDREN THEY'RE SO CUTE I CAN'T EVEN THEY'RE MY BEBES NOW I MUST PROTECT THEM NOBODY HARM MY POOR KIDS OKAY THEY'RE MINE

You had me daydreaming about our kids
a house that’s never known hate
a life worth living

You fed me the lines
to keep my fire burning
told me you would stay to protect me

But that was too much for you, wasn’t it?

You came through and set fire to the walls
claiming I had it coming
that you were just saving the world
again

You left me starving for the sweet taste of false promises
our kids never stood a chance
and our house was built out
temporary love

Is anyone interested in a (short?) webcomic I’d post on tapastic (and maybe on a side blog here) during this summer break? 

Featuring: mythology, fate, feelings, romance, drama (angst or happy ending? who knows (i hope for happy endings)), ink, dreams, weird links between past and present, identity crisis and….I’m sure I’ll find something cool to add to this list
