Having very serious conversations about fictional universes is one of my favorite things to do.

I’m not just an exotic white girl.

mixedgirlrants:

It’s really no secret that being white passing makes things easier for you in society. However, it still doesn’t mean that you’re not culturally different. When you look like a regular white person but you don’t fit in with how they act, it’s really confusing on where you stand. And often times people will use the whole, “But you’re not REALLY Asian/Latina/Middle Eastern/etc.,” thing to invalidate you.

I am so, so very aware that I look like a plain old white girl, but I am still half Lebanese. I may not get called a terrorist on a regular basis, I may be paper white and have freckles and just look Italian or French to some people. But please, do not erase my identity. I am mixed, I have white-passing privilege, and I have my own set of issues that arise from that.

COLLECTION OF YORUBA ORISHAS

Not to diss on European mythologies but can we seriously have some fuckin’ recognition that there are religions and mythologies that are not Greek or Norse. Why the fuck did I learn about the Greeks 6 times but we never fucking talked about Africa or even really the mythologies and beliefs of native peoples? 

(Pssst from what group are these deities from?)

The Yoruba of western Africa.

Favorite Game of All Time → Ico

I don’t know how to adequately put into words how important this game is to me. It’s two kids, who have no idea what’s going on, who don’t even speak the same language and have no reliable way of communicating, trying to find a way to be free. I can’t believe I’d never played it before last year

The alphabet fades away

Would you like to read a book in which this happens?
It’s one of my all-time favorite books.  It’s called Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn.  He describes it as an “progressively lipogrammatic epistolary fable.”
It is written in the form of letters between the citizens of the fictional island of Nollop, an independent nation off the coast of South Carolina and home of Nevin Nollop, who invented the phrase “the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog.”  That phrase is written in tiles over a statue of Nollop in their town square, and when one night a storm causes one of the tiles to fall, the council decides that it’s a sign from Nollop that they are no longer allowed to use that letter, in speech or writing, on pain of progressive punishments including public beating and up to banishment.
Then another tile falls.  Then another.
The citizens, who are all very attached to their words and writing, mount a campaign to come up with a phrase that uses all 26 letters but is shorter than Nollop’s, thus proving that he was not divine and negating all the edicts.
Because the novel is told in the form of letters the citizens write, and this is the genius part…the author must also stop using the letters as they fall.  So the book gradually stops using letters until at one point I think they’re down to just five.
The resolution literally made me get up and dance around the room.
It’s clever, creative, and a not-really-veiled-at-all parable about monotheistic oligarchy.  It’s not a long book, you can read it in an afternoon.
GO READ IT RIGHT NOW.

WOW I want to read that book

Very rarely is there a book that I must read at any costThis is now one of them

Note: locate book

I actually bought this book because of this post and let me tell you, it was a fucking great decision. Besides having a brilliant concept, it’s also so well written that in the beginning you don’t even notice when another letter is removed. There was one part I had to re-read because I couldn’t believe that there wasn’t a single ‘d’ in the last five pages.Seriously, this book is fantastic

I have long said that in order for any comedy to truly succeed as a story, there has to be meat beneath the jokes. There has to be that moment when it is not funny any more.

This. This is that moment.
