Korra is one of my favorite shows on television right now. Each character, each relationship, is so perfectly complex. It doesn’t buy into cheap cliches, and the world is simply stunning.
I’m just going to sit here and try not to be worried right now.
If one more person tells me that I shouldn’t be an English major or that I’m a bad English major because I typically prefer YA to the “classics” I am going to scream.
I will defend you to the death my friend. If there’s going to be a rumble, just tell me when and where.
And that, my friends, is why I chose the college with the graduate program in children’s lit…

This has made my Tumblr day!
A lot of people have asked about my process doing research for medievalpoc. I use a lot of resources and tools that are readily available for anyone to use, and this is one of them. There are thousands of manuscripts available to just page through and zoom in on, as if you had the book right in front of you.
If the idea of searching through endless lists of titles and numbers is daunting to you, the Digitized Medieval Manuscripts Collection has a blog.
The blog makes topical posts with images of the manuscripts according to those topics, and then links to the full manuscripts, so you can go looking at them yourself:
They also have a Twitter.
One of the best things about medievalpoc is that I get to see people get excited about art and history, and if you decide you’d like to go exploring, this is a great place to do that. I think the manuscript viewer is relatively user-friendly, and there’s a ton of information about the histories of the manuscripts themselves there, too.
I wish I could know how the people who illuminated these would react if you told them that one day their books would be duplicated into an incoporeal form that anyone in the world can summon at will with the right equipment.
Well, considering none of the above creatures actually exist, seems like they’d probably take it in stride. ;) Magic and dragons kinda go together TBH
you know those people that can literally carry on a conversation with anyone are amazing like wow how do you do that
Does existence precede essence? I feel for you, Bruce. It’s hard to debate the metaphysical when you’re a grown man who’s tired and dirty and wearing a strange dude’s pants.
#ruffalo’s rueful self-deprecating humour and sort of philosophical acceptance of his inner rage monster #is one of my favourite things about this film #especially as his seeming mellowness masks #a great deal of care and deliberation and always striving for that control #and a terrible struggle against being betrayed by himself #but he doesn’t waste time being all broody angst-puppet about it #because he is a fucking grown-up #ilu bruce
Voice Actors and Actresses from Avatar The Last Airbender who came back with new characters in The Legend of Korra.
What a cool post! Once again, the hardest working fans in the business. Also, as illustrated by these graphics, if you hear a voice on ATLA/LOK there is a strong chance it was performed by Grey DeLisle. Although Dee Bradley Baker might have more screen time due to all the animal chirps and grumbles. Either way, Grey and Dee could easily voice an entire series together—just the two of them covering all the characters—and the audience would be none the wiser without checking the credits.
When I'm making references to "people" I seem to know a lot about but you don't, the chances are fairly good, I'm talking about my characters or characters of others in one of the PBeM RPGs I participate in or run.
The biggest of these is Apocalypse Later. I run it with Devarin and two other dear friends. I invite you to poke around if you're curious. Mostly I state this because it might help you comprehend a smidge of my personal insanity.
Welcome to the dream.
