opening of this fic i seem to be writing:
There is a little game Lord Vetinari plays with himself…ah, well. There are many little games Lord Vetinari plays with himself, because reality would be summarily boring otherwise; this particular game is simply one he plays more often than not, if only because it comes up so often. There is much to be learned, Vetinari has discovered, by the typical Ankh-Morporkian’s view of Ankh-Morpork....
DECLARING IT DISCWORLD DAY
Mostly because I’ve gotten at least three asks that are going to produce essays and the extreme desire to write things. HAPPY DISCWORLD DAY Y’ALL, I APOLOGIZE IN ADVANCE FOR THE NEXT FEW HOURS
malfaisance replied to your post: Oh my god, I didn’t think you could get any more… why don’t you like the rincewind novels, just out of curiosity? Mostly because I dont like Rincewind :D It’s not his fault! I’ve just never found that particular schtick all that appealing; it just doesn’t work for me.

Thom is many things (arrogant, impossible, brilliant, a terrible brother, he supposes he could carry on all day), but he has never been stupid. He is aware from the moment the Conté Duke’s eyes open that he should have left them closed; there are some things that anyone can see, Master of the Mithran Light or no. “Ah,” Roger says, “Trebond,” and Thom...
found myself an old solution [jim/seb]
Jim’s voice careens around corners and shatters glass, cracks hard on rough edges and slithers in where it’s not invited. Jim talks like he fucks like he works, which is to say: hard, except when circumstance calls for something else. Jim rolls vowels the way Seb rolls cigarettes, one after the other, staining the pads of his fingers. He’s not dead, because legends don’t...

No, really. fhdjsfhsdk so basically, my father is going to New Orleans for the Final Four this weekend and he booked his flight and bought his ticket and NEGLECTED TO GET A HOTEL ROOM, so now he is Desperately Seeking Vacancies, because of course everyone and their brother is ALSO going to be in New Orleans this weekend for the Final Four. And when I say Desperately Seeking Vacancies, I mean...
spotted in my yard: AN OPOSSUM hiss hiss motherfucker i see you
limit-the-sky asked: Do you believe that jealousy is a sign of love or a sign that he/she thinks he/she possesses you? There are so many stories out there, where the main love interest (if the protagonist is female) will act insanely jealous over every little thing and the reader is expected to believe that this means the love interest is head over heels for the protagonist, but... it always makes me think more that...

“Once,” says Professor Tom Riddle, “this class was called Defense Against The Dark Arts. Can anyone tell me why?” A hand raises towards the back of the classroom; Riddle turns, and sighs. It’s the Pettigrew boy, who is—based on Tom’s initial impression of him—going to be a discredit to Slytherin House. Minerva insists that it is unseemly for him to...

Right so, AN AGE AGO, seji asked me to do some meta about Crowley and Aziraphale! To be more specific, she asked me to do some meta for build me a city, call it jerusalem; because it is my irredeemable nature to answer questions with questions and spew feels no one requested in the process, this is instead going to be an essay about Crowley and Aziraphale, the good/evil paradigm, religion and...

So, there was a prompt at the Could Have Beens AU Comment Ficathon (which is great fun, you guys should check it out) that read as follows: “Dumbledore/Grindelwald; Ariana doesn’t die, Dumbledore sticks with Grindelwald.” And what I intended to do was…look at it and then look away, honestly. What I’m actually doing is more or less a re-envisioning of the entire HP...

A retelling of the fairytale Beauty and the Beast, now with more lesbians, fae legends, and, uh, violence.
