There’s one degree of separation between myself and the latest viral video sensation - Jared, the guy who was kicked in the head by a train conductor.
He’s so pretteh…
Buckling down tonight with the bestest of inspiring authors to get on the ball with the Twi25 challenge
That requires pulling out the big guns of muse inspiration… not just for Paul either
As Cay said, how can you NOT love these men?
WHY DO PEOPLE CALL IT FUCK, MARRY, KILL WHEN THEY COULD CALL IT BED, WED, BEHEAD
This is so important.
I’m seriously addicted to stories of lovers where one can’t remember the other for any given reason. Send me recs for any of the fandoms I follow and I will send you send you love!

i wrote a paper as a senior in high school about this and when tracking the unhealthy relationship symptoms i found this out too. fucking a.
THIS is a legitimate reason to think Twilight is problematic. Not “oooh, but it’s girly literature cause the vampires sparkle and all the teen girls are into Edward”. As funny as some of the sparkly vampires jokes are - and they really sometimes are - Twilight’s very unique take on vampires is the least of the series’ problems, yet this criticism gets heard a lot more than the criticism of people who have noticed that something isn’t quite right in the relationship between Edward and Bella.
I brought this up every chance I had when I was working with the youth theatre girls this summer. There was one in particular who was way gaga over Edward and how she wanted a boyfriend just like him, so I told her “Oh, you’d be ok with a guy who followed you everywhere, invaded your privacy, ignored your feelings, sabotaged your friendships, and isolated you from everyone you’ve ever loved? And nearly killed you on several occasions?”
And I literally watched the switch flip in her head.
EXACTLY why I hate Twilight. This is glorious. (This is also why I hate 50 Shades)
Actually really good career advice from a laughing homicidal madman.
