Best day of my life.

Rating: 5/5 I may do a longer review of this at some point, but I&#8217;m still just riding high on the whole experience.

Lost in Sherlock

Recently I haven’t been reading /books/, plural, so much as book. More specifically, Sherlock Holmes.

sherlockholmesI’ve been kind of lacking on book posts recently, mainly because I haven’t been reading books, plural, so much as book. More specifically, The Complete Sherlock Holmes, which is a weighty tome if every there was one (thank god for my Nook). Back in December I caught the Sherlock Holmes Exhibitat OMSI (which was awesome, and if you get a chance to catch it while it’s touring, DO IT!). It inspired…

Feminism is having a wardrobe malfunction.

Does your brand of feminism remove barriers for women, or simply move them around? Does is expand options for women, or does it just shift them? You don’t liberate women by forcing them to choose option B instead of option A. What is comfortable for you might not be comfortable for someone else, and it’s entirely possible that what you see as oppressive, other women find comfortable or even downright liberating.

Before you think the girl in the middle is a strawman, let me tell you I used to be her, back in my misguided youth. I considered myself the standard to which other people should adhere. But that was stupid. It’s not up to me to tell people how to dress, and it’s much nicer to let everyone choose for themselves.

Some women would feel naked without a veil. Some women would find it restrictive. Some women would feel restricted by a bra. Some women would feel naked without one. Some women would feel restricted by a tight corset. Others love them. Some wear lots of clothes with a corset. Some only wear the corset and nothing else. What makes any article of clothing oppressive is someone forcing you to wear it. And it’s just as oppressive to force someone not to wear something that they want to wear.

Candy and Vampires

Just writing those two words makes me want to do pretty art »  Okay, so I’ve added another Adventure Time Royal to my repertoire!  I think LSP and Jungle Princess (the bf’s fave) are next.  I redesigned Bubblegum a little bit less than Marceline, but I still had a lot of fun. 

Get PB here and Marceline here.

Fanfiction

I like fanfiction, because in its own way, it’s a little bit like literary analysis. It’s showing instead of telling. You could write an essay on the sexual tension between Kirk and Spock, or you could pair them up in a fic.

In some schools of literary…

Podcast Fame

Last week, I had the wonderful (and terrifying) experience of having one of my short stories discussed on a podcast. I submitted the short story “IRL” to LadyLike Book Club‘s fiction contest, and it was chosen as one of three finalists! The three stories…
