Esme turned, and a billion figures turned with her.
‘When can I get out?’
WHEN YOU FIND THE ONE THAT’S REAL.
‘Is this a trick question?’
NO.
Granny looked down at herself.
‘This one,’ she said.

April, come she will, when streams are ripe and swelled with rain.

May, she will stay, resting in my arms again.

June, she’ll change her tune. In restless walks she’ll prowl the night.

July, she will fly, and give no warning to her flight.

August, die she must. The autumn winds blow chilly and cold.

September, I’ll remember. A love once new has now grown old.

One can quibble with the terminology of D&D’s scheme, and with whether its simplicity — a useful feature for the mechanics of the game — is overly simplistic. But these categories can also be evocative and insightful when considered in contexts other than the game. Consider, for example, the cast of characters presented in the Woody Guthrie song “Pretty Boy Floyd.” Guthrie casts Floyd as a modern-day Robin Hood — a classic “chaotic good” hero challenging the lawful evil fountain-pen wielding bankers as he eludes the lawful neutral G-men sent by the neutral evil J. Edgar Hoover.
Think what that second dimension of D&D’s alignment meant for my friends and I, as kids who grew up steeped in the ideology of white evangelicalism and fundamentalist Christianity. That ideology made no distinction between “lawful” and “good.” It allowed for no such distinction: To be good meant to follow the rules; to follow the rules meant to be good.
But now we were confronted with a new possibility, a new vocabulary that allowed us to articulate something we had suspected was true all along. “Go and learn what this means: Lawful evil. Lawful neutral. Chaotic good.” To be good might mean something more than following the rules. To be good might mean something separate from following the rules. And it was possible to follow the rules without being good.
It says something about the sorry state of biblical understanding among biblical “inerrantists” that we were left to learn this from Gary Gygax rather than from Galatians, Isaiah, Amos or the Gospels.

Go and learn what this means: Lawful evil, chaotic good and B.A.D.D. theology

Oh, Hans. If only there was someone out there you loved.
An amazing drawing done by wonderful Gingerhaole who allowed me to add color to it! I enjoyed dding all the colors and detailing, it’s different then my usual coloring style but was very much fun!

guardianoffrost asked to color my grayscale, and it turned out SO unbelievably beautiful! This is absolutely stunning, it’s so vivid and perfect. Thank you SO, so much for doing this! I might wheedle you to color one or two more of my things if I can’t do it on my own, because seriously. This is just shockingly beautiful!

(Inspiration from evankart's costume, and from this one beautiful piece of art which I cannot find to save my life, of a hunter girl and a knight.)

Holy…
I was hoping it was this.
And oh, man, you never disappoint.
This is beautiful. And I looooooove Anna’s expression. Love it. Absolutely love it. (Bet she’d save him if she could, too. Because she’s not a calculating bastard.)
…How do you do this stuff?!

No, no — those are her arrows. And no accident; she double-tapped. I think she’s sorry it had to be done, but she’s not sorry she did it.

This is something that I really, really love - a lot of people talk about the potential for darkness in Elsa, but Anna gets overlooked and I believe she has the same potential. She wouldn’t like it at all, and she would be sorry that it came to it, but I have a feeling that when the chips are down and her loved ones are in danger, she could and would do a deed like this. 
She loves her family fiercely, and love can be a weapon to reckon with when someone is threatened…

#I’m just imagining the backstory like#’if I can’t have Arendelle through marriage then I’ll take it by FORCE!’#and he leads a mercenary army against them#and Anna leads a squad#and she sees him and shoots him#and as soon as the mercenaries see that he’s down they start to run away#because why bother fighting if the guy who paid you is dead right#and so she finds him on the battlefield bleeding out#and if only he could love somebody#it would never have come to this#if he had been able to find happiness for himself instead of wanting to take others’ and make it his own

^ That is perfect perfect perfect. Ugh, PERFECT. Yes.

Thirty Pieces of Silver by Cornelia Parker

Photograph by Shannon Tofts.

Cornelia Parker made her work Thirty Pieces of Silver back in 1988-89 and it is a major work, now in the Tate collection, consisting of over one thousand silver objects of all kinds, both useful and ornamental, which have been flattened with a steam roller and suspended on thirty two kilometres of fine wire. It has been on show at York St Mary’s for the summer filling the central space of what was the nave of the church with an eerie beauty.

When we do modern art in my humanities class I show my students a video from the Tate Gallery that talks about this piece and (because a lot of them tend to be pretty religious) it always blows their mind. Which is pretty nice.

Of course now it also gives me RSC Richard II feels.

The library at Mafra National Palace in Portugal. Where, to keep books from being damaged by insects, they uses 500 bats! The bats are kept in boxes during the day but at night they are let out and eat up to double their own body weight in insects. (Info taken from this article at bookwire. Thanks to amygarvey for telling me about it!)
I think I need to go there. Do you think they’d notice if I moved in?

this is the most romantic thing i’ve seen all day

No shit. That tom cat was like:

"This thorn invested wall means nothing."

"I will gladly walk on it a thousand times over, if that means I could be with you, my lady."

and the lady cat was all:

"My brave darling."

OOOPS MY HAND SLIPPED!!

Suddenly my muse insisted me to draw the personification version of the last pic, and who am I to reject inspiration when it comes so willingly to me? At least this will help with the artblock issue I currently have to deal with.

Russian imperial era inspired because hot damn.

Note: I tried google reverse image (and other reverse image search engines) those photos and came up with nothing. I wish I knew the original photographer because I want to love hug him/her so hard for capturing such inspiring moments.

OMG that’s the cutest thing ever and the best courtly love ah so brilliant.

Few romantic heroes could do better.

I don’t post cats often but that illustration.

that ILLUSTRATION

I know I reblog this all the time but it’s just too damn cute and I’m a hopeless romantic so here you go

we all know how this ends
