Simultaneously the worst and best movie ever made
Actually one of my teachers watched every single version of Romeo and Juliet with the original text in front of him to prove that this was the worst version, but to his great dismay its the most accurate film adaptation of it, with the lines closest to the original text and most similar stage direction and relayed emotions.
He proceeded to show it to us in class.
Actually this is an AMAZING R&J. I love it.
I have to admit that I liked this movie just because it contained enough modern situational backdroppery for me to understand completely what was happening, and though the whole “tragedy for lack of communication” trope is dumb, it was still a good story.
I think it’s a crime to try to get kids to READ Shakespeare. wtf, ur doin’ it rong, that’ll never work, put on a play or a movie, idjits.
I can’t remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you’re saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it’s not literally illegal to express.
i really hate the attitude a lot of men have about how women are so different and mysterious and hard to understand, as if women are some kind of foreign species and not fellow human beings and then complain about women being unapproachable and ‘prude’
you don’t get to put me on a pedestal and then complain about me being out of reach
"you don’t get to put me on a pedestal and then complain about me being out of reach”
I’ve never heard wiser words.
+1 This annoys the crap out of me, esp. when MY DAD does it. He is a very smart and (ostensibly) equality-minded man, but he also once honestly said to me, when I pointed out that women have been reading sci-fi for a long time, “Oh, I didn’t know. See, until you told me, I didn’t know that women liked Neil Gaiman.”
I nearly flailed into the sun on that one.
fav person of the day

petition to have a designated Captain Patch-It at all cons from now on.
A real life hero :D
What an awesome thing to do. :) A+ human being.
This is beginning to bother me.
I realize most people don’t care about the double standards applied to fanart and fanfic, so I’ll cut and let you pass on by.
*hats off to you* Seriously, this is such a dumb “controversy” it makes my head hurt. I’m convinced that it’s only kept alive largely by people who have never actually attempted to write good fanfiction. Anyone can write good fanfiction? THE PIT OF VOLES SAYS OTHERWISE.
And anyone who won’t agree that they’re paying for my time and labor deserves what they get, which would be nothing. You want someone to work AT COST just because you asked? And you’re not a friend or someone else I even KNOW? *lolz into the sunset*
Things like this tempt me to open for commissions (I am a somewhat contrary Aster). The only reason I don’t is because I don’t work well under pressure and so limit my pressure-writing to occasional charity commissions and sometimes Yuletide. But other than that, I’d totally do it, if only as a “sure, i can write anything, if someone provides some impetus by paying me” exercise.
I know I don’t have that many followers on here who know I write fanfic, but on the off chance you’re one of them, I’m curious…would you commission me? On much the same rates and rules as BibliotecariaD does?
(I promise to do things on a more reasonable timetable than my last charity commission, omg, Neko, so sorry… ._.)

Here’s the link to the GIVE IT ALL TO ME Library Collection at OutofPrintClothing.com.
Check it out! The good folks dropped me a line about this project last week, and I’m happy to boost for Library Week.
Thanks for posting this. We are going to call to see if we can offer something. We love Out of Print (they do our nifty Kafka // METAMORPHOSIS shirts).
Please let us know what else is taking place for library week.

This woman is officially my new hero.
In regards to the flooding in the GTA yesterday, she apparently said that she hasn’t seen rain like that since her neighbour Noah was building a boat.
New hero in life.
Some clean versions of the pages that just went up on Newsrama. Windblade #1 comes out in two days!
Starscream, stop trying to act like Megatron. It’s bad for you. Unless he’s whispering to her “girl, who does your makeup??” In which case carry on.
The above looks adolescent, dwarfed by everyone else, and semi-permanently wide-eyed about everything around her. These communicate really different things about the character.
Is it the artist? Do they mangafy everyone? I can see the stylistic difference here, but Chromia doesn’t strike me the same way, and…I can’t help but think that Windblade’s depiction here is because “omg we have to make her more FEMININE!”
I’m trying not to put down a character by how they look (though the wide-eyedness really gets to me as a way to make her seem subtly incompetent and unable to handle whatever is happening because she’s semi-permanently surprised by life), but…this metamorphosis really rubs me the wrong way.
I don’t know. Someone tell me if she redeems herself in the text? Please tell me that she acts like a mature, capable, clever commander. Please?

Hm, something like this design I was already working on? >:3

These are all illustrations I did for fractalserpent and hopeofdawn’s wonderful Transformers fic series, Sound and Fury
They are all handmade silk fiber paper (silk fusion) collages with inlayed abalone and a bit of gold and silver leafing.
I have more of these in the works still, and hope to finish and post them soonish!
