land of snow and glyphs

You can call me Arrows or a4p; other people who let me ride on their zombie dinosaur call me Kate. I'm a writer who is very fond of puns, cats, and assorted other things including Homestuck, Farscape, and the Dresden Files. This is a personal / fandom / whatever I want blog, but you should be able to filter by tags.


Someone please write me a fic where Thranduil and Lucius Malfoy run a hair salon together and instead of doing any actual work they bitch about their customers and interfere in their sons love lives






If I were a showrunner for something like Buffy or Supernatural or any scary/fantastical show, I would always have the episode around Halloween be completely normal.

All of the characters would somehow lead perfectly mundane lives and the episode would have almost nothing…

In the Dresden Files, (books, but I’m gonna talk about it anyway) Halloween is the night when the veil between the mortal world and the Nevernever is easiest to pierce, so your regular warlocks and phages know to stay home, and only the really big players come out (and only if they’re doing something specific). Nobody who likes their organs where they are wants to meet the Hunt.
It’s also Harry Dresden’s birthday.

Ramirez is a VIRGIN????? I volunteer.

But the next Dresden is called Skin Game.

That’s it, I’m fucking out, that sounds terrifying as shit.

"He’s Black Council," I said.

"Or maybe stupid," Ebenezar countered.

I thought about it. “Not sure which is scarier.”

Ebenezar blinked at me, then snorted. “Stupid, Hoss. Every time. Only so many blackhearted villains in the world, and they only get uppity on occasion. Stupid’s everywhere, every day.”

The end of Cold Days.

The end of Cold Days.

Reserved my copy of Cold Days today. Nope, no Amazon, I’m gonna walk right past that B&N anyway, I want it RIGHT THAT MOMENT.
This is going to hurt so much.

It’s like Thomas the sex vampire pretending to be a gay Frenchman dressed up as a sexy vampire.
It might be even better, I haven’t decided yet. I can’t stop giggling.

Murphy planted her feet and lowered her arms casually to her sides. I recognized the stubborn outthrust angle of her jaw; she had that look she got when she was behind on points at one of her martial arts tournaments. Murphy was ready to fight.

Fool Moon, Jim Butcher.

Can I just point out that this means that Harry was attending Murph’s martial arts tournaments really early in their relationship! He mentioned that they didn’t speak as friends between Storm Front and Fool Moon, which means he was doing it—with some regularity—even before the Shadowman. I love this.

I want a recording of a GPS voice saying

This man is my master.

I had a rough day, so James is going to read to me now.
