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.
Who had reason to threaten me?

In all fairness, this was the first book. He hasn’t pissed off anyone major just yet.

I have to point out that "he's uncomfortable writing those scenes" isn't an excuse for having no queer males at all. No one's asking for an explicit male sex scene as representation. Marci and Andi are mentioned as having had a "thing" in college. Why not Billy and Kirby? Thomas referencing to an ex-boyfriend? One of the male fae hanging around Court with a male lover? Or even just someone mentioning in passing that they aren't into sex at all. There are non-sex ways to indicate sexuality.



I want Thomas to meet an ace person. Just once.


I’m suddenly nervous for the next two books.

A thought: Elaine (more or less) lived with the Sidhe, specifically the Summer Court, for over a decade, until the events of Summer Knight.

I’d say that counts as priming. More so than the year or two Molly had.

If she’d been on that island that night, geographically closer to events, things might have gone very differently.


After reading Changes by Jim Butcher

Me: what tHE FUCK
Me: can I get some compensation for this emotional trauma I was put through
name your favorite dragon...



what an odd question

the answer is clearly ferrovax :)

I am blind and limited. I would be a fool think myself wise. And so, not knowing what the universe means, I can only try to be responsible with the knowledge, the strength, and the time given to me. I must be true to my heart.

You may wonder: who is the biggest nerd in The Dresden Files?

Is it our titular hero, Harry? Is it that loveable geek, Butters? Is it maybe even that spirit who lives in a skull, Bob?

No, the answer is simple. It’s Malcolm, the single-father magician, who upon having a child apparently thought something along the lines of,

"I have a son.

I could name him after a magician.

I could name him after three magicians.”

I was thinking we should have a party where we just sit around talking about how great Karrin Murphy is, but then I remembered that I’m already in permanent attendance at that party. I live there.

"Likest thou jelly within thy doughnut?"

"Nay, but prithee, with sprinkles ‘pon it instead," I said solemnly, "and frosting of white."
