Rage & Serenity

When her kiss transforms the Beast, she is furious.

"You should have warned me! Here I was smitten by an exceptional being, and all of a sudden, my fiance becomes an ordinary distinguished young man!"

the 1909 play Beauty and the Beast:  Fantasy in Two Acts by Fernand Noziere, the very first published version of the story where the Beauty is disappointed when the Beast transforms into a human at the end. (via corseque)

The best Pokemon name in the world.


When twelve year old girls write ill-conceived fanfic plots in which everyone is attracted to their “edgy”, mysterious, egocentric main character they call it trash but when Moffat does it they call it a script. Hmmm. Suspicious.

In Which Tony Stark Builds Himself Some Friends (But His Family is Assigned by Nick Fury)

I finished them all! FINALLY. Finishing up this series took a while. It was good for me, though. I learned a lot doing this. (I’m posting this on my main account rather than my art blog because I am Very Very Proud and wish my followers to see this)

I think this is a sign that I should be working on part 7 of the Toasterverse right now. 8)

And yes.  The fact that there are seven chapters is depressing to me, too, guys. 8)


If you’ve ever asked yourself whether or not you should watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer then the answer is yes. You should watch Buffy. Everyone should watch Buffy. Your family should watch Buffy. Your friends should watch Buffy. Your dog should watch Buffy. Obama should watch Buffy. The world would be a better place if everyone watched Buffy



Jessica Rey presents the history of the evolution of the swimsuit including the origins of its design, how it has changed overtime and the post-feminist association of the bikini symbolizing female empowerment. She refers to neuro-scientific studies revealing how male brains react to images of scantily clad women versus images of women deemed modest and what the implications of the results are for women in society.

(Note: As the OP, I disagree with Rey’s approach to putting the onus on women to alter ourselves rather than to alter the male perception of women – brain wiring has plenty to do with socialization and if we worked against the culture that fuels men’s objectification of women, women’s clothing choices would matter far less in terms of how men perceive us and determine how to interact with us).
