a-damaged-rawr asked: Darling we're too kind to be that inappropriate
I know, which is why I had to invent the situation for myself. :)
That gif, though. Like when your jeans have been digging into your waist all day and then you get to peel them off in the comfort of your bedroom?
Tumblr repeatedly proves to me its boundless kindness. It’s exceptional, and I think y’all are the greatest. Seriously.
hernameispersephone asked: I love that you, a 25 year old newly married woman that is educated and well spoken, read fic. And I love that you don't even just read it, you love it and you freely admit that you've read an extremely long fic for a /questionable/ ship. I love that. Thanks for proving you don't have to let that part of you go once you "grow up".
I. Love. Fic. I love it. It’s made me some incredible friends, it’s some of the most fun and agonizing times I’ve had as a reader, and it’s taught me so much about writing. It’s something I was insecure about for a long time, and then, one day, I just let it go. All it took was one other grown ass woman to say, “I read the best fic the other day.” and I realized that this was nothing to be ashamed of. I’ve read some really crap books before, but because they are published I’m supposed to think them better than the really EXCELLENT fic I’ve read over the years?
Never grow out of reading fic, y’all. There’s only going to be more things to ship with every passing year. :)
startraveller776 asked: Turning the tables on you: What's *your* guiltiest guilty pleasure fic???
Ack! It’s a harder question than I anticipated!
Oh! I know! I don’t even participate in this fandom, but there is this Harry Potter fic that drew a very weird (for me) ship out of me. It’s a Snape/Hermione fic, Pet Project. It’s a pretty huge fic in the ship (also, it’s a pretty huge fic in general, longer than any of the canon books), but about the only one I have read for that particular ship. I don’t even know how I came across it, but I love it.
And I hate that I love it. Because Snape and Hermione. Rowling would slap me.
Thanks for the ask, you wicked woman. I have tasted my own medicine.
imstillproud asked: do you have any advice do you have for coming out after leaving the Church/to a bunch of Christians? i haven't really talked to these people for over a year and part of me doesn't care at all what they think, i've seen them at their hypocritical worse, but then part of me is really terrified too. i just want to openly be able to say i'm not straight and not take it personally/get really offended when people say they're "praying for me" like i have cancer. thank you!
I say, just be yourself. I know that sounds so cliche, but I’m dead serious. I talk about my life, I talk about my wife and my wedding because it’s what comes up naturally in conversation. I have a million opportunities to come out to people every single day, and I choose not to, because I did it once, and that was an ordeal. Everyone else can just deal with it. Seeing high school classmates is the worst! They know, they follow me on facebook, but they see me and they ask these leading questions like I’m going to personalize a coming out just for them.
And I deny them the satisfaction. I just talk about me, and my stuff, because that’s what’s going on.
It’s so much easier than having a moment to say, “I’m gay, by the way.” They’ll figure it out, and really, you’ll be better for it. Kind of heads off the uncomfortable remarks, too.
I hope this makes sense. It’s what works for me, it may not work for you. Each situation is different.
Keep in touch, dear. I hope everything works out well for you. You’re awesome, and I’m proud of you for being who you are. :)
noah-puckerzelda asked: You should be famous boo :D
Ha! No one’s ever called me boo before!
tepskie asked: The mirror is in front of you.. What would you tell to yourself at this moment? ( silly question.. Ehe)
Hmmm. I’m sorry, I’m a bit of a cynical little shit. I’d probably give myself some lame pep talk a la Jack Donaghy in 30 Rock.
"It’s winning time, you magnificent son of a bitch!"
Also, “It is high time you plucked your eyebrows, you ape.”
Thanks for the ask!
hollywithaneye asked: A book you felt changed you in some way?
The Hobbit, no doubt. It’s the first book I even remember. My dad read it to me, and then I read it to me— it’s the first book I ever even read. I got in trouble in first grade because the teacher thought I was lying about it being my favorite book, no matter how I talked about Bilbo and Gandalf.
It sparked my imagination, it built a relationship with my dad that I don’t share with anyone else, it has stayed with me through so much. It’s just my most favorite book.
It’s the book that made me love books.
Thanks for the ask!!
acarlini asked: Well I *WAS* going to ask you "What do you look like naked" but you already did that one so.... What was the first fic you ever wrote and are you now greatly embarrassed by it?
Oh my giddy god, my first fic is so baaaaad. So bad. It’s from when I was in high school, it’s a Legomance with an OFC because Orlando Bloom was so hot. Yuh, I went there.
And you’re nuts if you think I’m not about to link that shit so you can laaaaugh
at with me.
juvia5878 asked: If someone had asked how does it feel to take off the wedding dress you could have used the Ursula gif as well XD
SO DAMN TRUE YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND.
