Anyone else got those things you used to watch as a kid that you honestly don’t know whether you dreamt up or not because literally nobody else seems to have ever seen them?

sleepyrachael:

This is probably only funny to me but…oh well. Quick fun witch comic cause I’m snowed under with uni work and haven’t posted anything here in a while.

Any story dealing, however seriously, with homosexual love is taken to be a story about homosexuality while stories dealing with heterosexual love are seen as stories about the individual people they portray. This is as much a problem today for American filmmakers who cannot conceive of the presence of gay characters in a film unless the specific subject of the film is homosexuality. Lesbians and gay men are thereby classified as purely sexual creatures, people defined solely by their sexual urges.
Vito Russo, The Celluloid Closet: Homosexuality in the Movies (Chapter 4)

I am often surprised when people talk about the total implausibility of the events in García Márquez’s fiction. Having been born and lived in a deeply spiritual and extraordinarily resourceful part of the Caribbean, a lot of what might seem magical to others often seems quite plausible to me.

Of course a woman can live inside her cat, as the character Eva does, in García Márquez’s 1948 short story “Eva Is Inside Her Cat.” Doesn’t everyone have an aunt who’s done that? And remember that neighbor who died but kept growing in his coffin, as in the 1947 story “The Third Resignation”? What seems implausible to me is a lifetime of absolute normalcy, a world in which there are no invasions, occupations, or wars, no poverty or dictators, no earthquakes or cholera.

Stonewall was colored folks, poor folks, transsexuals, femmes, butches… a little bit of everybody. But the narrative that gets sold to people is that it was all these ‘A-Gay’ white normative people. That’s not who riots. Sorry.

sithwitch13 asked: Ooh! Fandom osmosis Hannibal!

Okay, so there’s this guy called Will and he has a lot of dogs.

And there’s a guy called Hannibal who eats people. Um. I think Hannibal is his psychiatrist and they also investigate the crimes together, which seems a big breach of protocol and patient relations, not to mention the fact that it’s almost always Hannibal displaying the bodies?

And they have characters that have been genderswapped! Alana Bloom and Freddie Lounds. (and one of them is morally ambigious? But in a show with a cannibal that’s still pretty good.)

Will was pretty ill last season. Hannibal knew this and tried to fuck him up.

And there’s a black stag that I don’t get the symbolism of. I think he’s the embodiment of cannibalistic evil or something? Does it often show up?

There are so many writers of color out there, and often what they get when they bring their books to their editors, they say, ‘We don’t relate to the character.’ Well it’s not for you to relate to! And why can’t you expand yourself so you can relate to the humanity of a character as opposed to the color of what they are?

Yup. I’ve gotten this rejection many a time. Never by my editor, but let’s be honest. We all know what it really means.
