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…

mainstream tumblr feminism may have many glaring faults but it has bred an army of teenage girls who understand the common ways that misogyny is reinforced in society and who know that they’re better off loving their fellow woman than fighting with her and that’s actually pretty damn revolutionary

I don’t get why people make fun of teenage girls for writing fanfiction characters that are thinly-veiled, idealized, nearly-perfect versions of themselves, because, you know, Julius Caesar wrote an autobiography in the third person about how awesome he was in the Gallic Wars so that he’d be too well-liked to be sued and stripped of his power for abuse of authority

Away From it All

Fandom: Legend of Korra

Length: Drabble, 719 words

Summary: While taking a break from aiding Korra, Asami finds solace in an unexpected conversation. Mako/Asami friendship, some implied Korrasami.

He finds Asami slumped against a column, her eyes listlessly fixed on the clouds. If she acknowledges his presence, she certainly doesn’t indicate it—there’s an impenetrable solitude about her, a quiet that he can’t bring himself to mar. His first instinct is to leave her to her thoughts, but her exhaustion is too obvious to ignore in good conscience. He’s already done enough wrong by her.

"You know," he begins haltingly, his voice too abrasive for the silence. "You don’t have to do this alone."

when you feel jealous or bitter over an artist’s achievements, always remember: people only show what they want to show of their art

 you would be surprised how hilariously bad some sketches of even experienced artists can look, and I don’t mean that in an insulting way. Also don’t think of the pics with the ‘man, such a sloppy doodle’ descriptions, I mean the truly horrible scribbles everybody does in their freetime. Even the most experienced artists have sketches that look like they had no orientation of lines in mind, with one arm going over the entire body and the other being half the length, etc, and that’s the COLD HARD AND WONDERFUL TRUTH

 No artist you look at does perfect work all the time, as hard as it is to imagine.
Any artist wants to give off the best impression they can, so frankly the very flawed looking stuff stays on a few papers at home without ever facing the internet or even close friends

 Similarily to how most people won’t go outside in a t-shirt with ten coffee stains and three holes in it, chances are you’ve never seen what /truly/ sloppy and disoriented sketches very good artists are capable of.

 So if something of yours doesn’t look perfect, and you look at people with all these wonderful sketches on the internet, remember; they very likely have those exact moments of doubt as well.
