    Here’s a thought, and I know. It’s revolutionary.

    Maybe this is not a show that was made FOR YOU.

    Well gee, I guess now I have to go watch Supergirl. No more compelling review than “whiny meninist sadsacks hate it.”

    That’s the main reason I went to see Fury Road, and I was not disappointed…

    I don't watch too much superhero crap, but I'll do it just to see the men cry. ;)

    Reminder to my fellow millennials.

    The primaries are beginning. We outnumber every other voting block in the nation but that doesn’t matter if you don’t get off your ass and vote.

    Get to the caucus, vote in the primaries and let’s make this happen. They laugh and say our generation is so apathetic and selfish that there is no way we’ll actually turn up. Please, let’s prove them all wrong. The future of this country belongs to all of us!

    Check this out and find out what you need to do in your state to make sure your voice is heard.

    Wish I could but I registered as a democrat too late. :(

    Yes kids, it’s easy.

    yeah but just imagine an imp or lesser demon who takes pity on a young girl whose life was totally fucked over by overzealous parents, and who was alone because nobody wanted to befriend her.

    imagine the demon seeing her crying alone while he’s possessing, like, a neighbor or something, and shambling up in the stiffly-working meat suit and sitting down and asking her what’s wrong. Imagine the little girl being afraid for a moment because people don’t usually walk like that, or talk to her, or ask her what’s wrong, before she just unleashes and lets the floodgates open. The demon is so stricken with grief for this little girl that once he gets over with his possession, he goes in his true form to her and plays whatever game she wants him to play.

    Imagine that she’s finally happy and that the demon must go and so while she’s bidding a tearful farewell, the demon teaches her to summon him.

    Imagine a little girl with her best friend, the lesser demon.

    Now imagine her summoning him again and again through her life. To hang out. To get advice. Whatever. And one day when she summons him she’s crying. Because something bad happened. She won’t tell him what. She just wants his help to make sure nothing like that can ever happen again. She wants to be strong. He can help her with that so he does. Then she uses that power to become a superhero & he has to explain to higher level demons why she can wield brimstone but hasn’t sold her soul.

    i really love tumblr sometimes because y’all make something that’s meant to be shitty and awful and horrible such as a demon and turn it into the most humanizing and empathizing piece of shit in the cutest possible way

    And one day when the demon answers her summons expecting to hear about her latest exploits, he finds himself not in her house in front of the fireplace, or even in the woods out the back, but in a cold white hospital room. She’s older now, mid 40s, he’s seen her grow from so small, but she tells him that she’s sick and there’s nothing anyone can do to make it better. That one day she won’t be able to call him anymore. Her lesser demon is distraught, he knew she was mortal but he never expected this. Her clawless fingers have burrowed into his heart and in all his thousands of years of life he has never thought of what it would be like to lose someone, for real. To lose someone forever. She tells him it will be ok, that it will stop hurting after a while, but he knows it’s wrong. Maybe for humans who always live with the knoweldge of their mortality, but not for him. He will never stop grieving her death. He makes her promise to summon him every day from the hospital, and he returns to the planes of hell. He cashes in every single debt he is owed over the past three millenea, ferreting out every favour he can. He makes alliances, promises oaths in blood and barters his precious hoard of souls until finally he returns to her with an offer. If she wants, she can leave her hospital bed, take his hand and follow him to the deepest circle of the underworld where she can be reforged into a demon too. She can live forever there, and find her own lost children on the surface, and he won’t have to lose his closest friend.

    This was such a great little story!!

    Something we talked about during a workshop in Donostia, Pais Vasco. It is sadly a very common experience. Hey Europe! I keep receiving new requests for talks on your continent, so I decided to come back next spring. If your association or group wants to organize something, don’t hesitate to send me a message!

    A very useful demonstration of the importance of sentence length.

    vorpalgirl

    Took me years to figure this out on my own, so I’m sharing this beautifully-demonstrated advice with every other writer out there who hasn’t already arrived at the same conclusion.  Short, simple sentences do have their place, even used repeatedly; but it has a very specific feel. Robotic, or child-like; limited – as if the thoughts they express are themselves constrained.  The ebb and flow of sentence length is as important as the words you choose. Perhaps more so. So always keep it in mind. :)

    If your nude photos are posted online without your permission, Microsoft and Google want to know.

    For years, most victims of revenge porn — people who have had their nude photos shared online without permission — basically couldn’t do anything about it.

    According toone study, over 50% of all adults engage in sexting, and 70% admit to having received a nude photo online or over the phone.

    And yet, despite the fact that we all (or at least more than half of us) do it, there’s still this weird, persistent, harmful notion that if your naked pictures get leaked or shared maliciously by an ex online, its your fault for taking them in the first place.

    It’s completely backward, but sadly, the law seems to at least kind of agree.

    As of September 2014, New Republic found, putting someone else’s illicit photos online without their consent was illegal in just 16 states, though laws have been proposed in more states. Not only is it typically impossible to prosecute the perpetrator, they note, it’s impossible to legally compel websites to take the images taken down most of the time.

    But thankfully, Microsoft and Google — which operate two of the biggest search engines on the web — don’t think it’s your fault. And they’re finally saying “Enough is enough.”
