So what happens if two people who have promised their firstborn to separate witches have a child together? Do they both just pop up in the nursery and have a custody battle?
I need a book about a little girl whose parents had promised their firstborn to different witches and the only way that both ends of the deal were fulfilled was for them to have joint custody of the child.
I love it!
And then the witches, forced to share a cottage while raising their joint stolen child, fall in love…
I am the best Editrix ever and I will hear none of your shrieking and flailing.
You are an evil, villainous, conniving wench and I will add it to the list of dime novels.
Oh god thank fucking christ.
I usually don’t reblog these, but I feel like some of my followers could probably use the reassurance. I definitely have these kinds of thoughts sometimes.
so i’m not crazy for randomly thinking such thoughts? what a relief!
Edgar Allan Poe had a name for it too: The Imp of the Perverse. he compared the impulses to a demon that urges people to do the wrong thing simply because it can be done
The compulsion to jump from high places is called “l’appel du vide" in French. The call of the void. I think it’s specific to that one instance, but I think it’s a cool phrase for this phenomenon in general.
I think about this with random sharp objects laying around, too. “What if I just jammed this into my eye or throat right now? … oh god WHAT.” Just… fucking christ, brain. Don’t.
Reblogging this again because most people don’t/never know how normal these thoughts are, and that can be a major source of stress. It’s okay. You’re okay. Just, you know, don’t follow through on that shit.
Sometimes I wonder if the occasional vivid images in my head of myself falling into traffic or tripping and knocking my teeth out or dropping expensive, precious things are points where I failed the mission and had to respawn and start over.
Yes. If thoughts like this pop up about everything you touch every moment of your life, or if they’re really loud and won’t stop, or if you feel yourself starting to obsess about them, it can be good to talk it out with someone for a sanity check, but random intrusive thoughts just pass through once in a while, even several times a day, that’s perfectly normal. You’re not generating them; they just show up. They don’t mean anything about you as a person. They come from the same place as “sure is hot today” and “call Gramps” and “what if I go home early” and all your best dreams and plot ideas and that one song that always gets stuck in your head. Brains do their thing; as long as we’re comfortable at the controls, we’re fine.
……..That last theory there, though, that one bears some thinking about. :D
That last one bears writing fic about. I wonder if someone already has, though…
"you’re so full of yourself" no i had a lot of insecurites and a low self esteem which i worked extremely hard to overcome and now i realize that im awesome and i dont care if you think otherwise
"you’re so full of yourself" no you’ve been taught that even the slightest expression of confidence in yourself and/or in certain others is a shameless and unacceptable display of arrogance and you absorbed that lesson and lived by it and come to enforce it and it burns, doesn’t it, to see that lesson ignored by those you think should abide by it and the sky doesn’t fall and the world doesn’t end and the thought police don’t come to cart them away as you’re certain would happen to you but no we are okay we are fine we are glorious and we have chosen to know it and get on with doing things and guess what that is okay
and while I’m at it sir ma’am or other so very concerned with people not being “full of themselves”
this might be a good time for you to think about growing up
"you’re so full of yourself!" Fuck you, I’m awesome.
"you’re so full of yourself!" Would you rather I was full of someone else? [that, my child, is pronounced cannibalism and is frowned upon in most civilized countries]
"you’re so full of yourself!" …. and?
"you’re so full of yourself!" Thank you. I’ve worked hard to become so.
"you’re so full of yourself!" why?
"you’re so full of yourself!" Because I have confidence? Because I know that despite the lack of outside validation, a piece of paper or a certificate or a picture on a wall or a high hit count, I know that I have done this thing and done it well and learned this skill, created this work, achieved this goal, and it gives me satisfaction and the confidence to pursue other goals, not to mention the security to fail at some of them, knowing that even if I fall down I’ve learned something, and I can pick myself back up again and keep going?
No, you know what? Fuck you, I’m awesome.
Now I definitely have to finish it
and include a role for him.
…. This is actually a little disturbing and yet I can’t look away.
Would it help if I headcast him as one of the aliens? At this stage they’re reading as mostly humanoid but definitely nonhuman.
/refrains from obvious reference to the many uses of latex in establishing SF alienness; this is, after all, the internet
….. I eagerly await this story. :D
so not only does scarlett johansson support israel, but she also supports woody allen and called dylan farrow “irresponsible” for coming forward with her story of her molestation.
Aw man. Why you gotta play awesome characters but have really shitty personal opinions?
Well, she’s also been a fairly vocal presence for shaming the interviewers who objectify Hollywood women.
She is vast, she contains multitudes. And some of those multitudes are really shitty people.
