I literally had a dream that Hannah Hart and Audrey Hepburn came to visit me to protect me from misogynistic jackasses
I’m that part of the fandom that can’t gif, make edits, write fanfiction or draw I’m just kind of here like
Which makes you the commenter, the fic-reccer, the source-finder, the link-poster, the headcanon buddy, the forum-poster, the kink-prompter, the conversation starter, the number one fan, the miscellaneous details and subconscious fact-checker.
aka: you’re the person all those other skill-sets are producing for.
I like you.
From a recent tweet by James Martin:
A woman gives birth in the UK every 48 seconds. She must be exhausted.
Which reminded me of a recent conversation I had about the surprisingly dangerous skills of deer:
Every year, somebody’s dog gets killed by a deer. It’s always the same person. They never learn. You just shouldn’t have a Chihuahua in Churchill, Manitoba
Obviously, the original intention is for neither the same woman nor the same dog owner, and the humour comes from violating this expectation, but why are both readings available in the first place?
Nobody will stop you from creating. Do it tonight. Do it tomorrow. That is the way to make your soul grow - whether there is a market for it or not! The kick of creation is the act of creating, not anything that happens afterward. I would tell all of you watching this screen: Before you go to bed, write a four line poem. Make it as good as you can. Don’t show it to anybody. Put it where nobody will find it. And you will discover that you have your reward.
I made a thing as a kind of companion to this post
talk street magic to me
drawing power from the metro lines
illusionists busking illegally, shimmering lights disintegrating as they run
plant mages tending tiny rooftop and windowbox gardens
elementary kids learning basic sigils on the playground
wixen taking a while to key into the magic in new cities when they move
alchemists dealing on the side to support their experiments
middleschoolers making friendship talismans and amulets for everyone
numerologists who’ll do your math homework for $5 or divine your fortune for $10
kids mass-texting luck and speed spells when their parties get broken up by the cops
crysriosol i think this might be relevant to your interests

"you make my heart beat in iambic pentameter."
no you don’t understand shakespeare literally writes to the beat of your heart
- that’s why shakespearean actors will sometimes pound their chests in time to the words during readings
- that’s why you use fluctuations in the rhythm to track your character’s emotional state - any irregularities in the scansion are like the character’s heart stuttering or jumping or skipping a beat
- that’s why when characters share the rhythm - switching off in the middle of a foot - those characters inevitably have an extraordinarily intimate connection
shakespeare fucking writes viscerally, he is literally in your body, and that, my friend, that is why the best shakespearean actors don’t posture and emote
you have to be fucking alive and passionate and electric - it can’t be intellectual, in the end, it has to be about connection and the sweating, cheering, jeering, bleeding masses you’re performing to, because make no mistake, shakespeare may go to lofty heights, but he only works if you’re just as grounded in the earth. he has to be in your body. he has to be in your body.
holy motherfucking shit i love shakespeare so much, get him in your bones, breathe him in, stomp and rage and pine, dadum dadum dadum dadum dadum, it is literally to the beat of your heart
THIS IS WHY I FUCKING LOVE SHAKESPEARE, THIS IS WHY I QUAKE IN THE HOLY GLORY OF JULIUS CAESAR OR RAGE AND SCREAM WITH SHYLOCK IN THE MERCHANT OF VENICE OR BROOD AND SCHEME WITH HAMLET OR WAIL AT THE INJUSTICE OF KING LEAR
SHAKESPEARE IS HUMANITY
how have i spent YEARS studying poetry and medicine side-by-side and never realized that your heart beats in iambic pentameter

Seizure First Aid.
Learn it. Share it. Know it. Use it.
100% correct medical information on tumblr for once; also consider calling 911 if you don’t know how often the person has seizures and ESPECIALLY if the seizure has lasted 5 minutes or more (which is why the watch is critical)
I was about to say it would be helpful if it were explained why we need to time it, but I see a helpful sort has added this in. Well done, helpful sort.
May I also add, from being told previously by a seizure-prone person - no one is going to swallow their own tongue. That is not a thing. However, they may choke, suffocate, or otherwise suffer lacerations from you trying to shove something into their mouth to keep them from doing this impossible thing. On no account do this.
This is super important! I had someone seizure during one of my panels (no it was not our fault, there was no slideshow at this point, just us talking) and we were lucky enough to have a few people with medical knowledge around. Memorize these steps, please.
