I took a sip from a devil’s cup
It’s taking over me 


I want to do so much witchcraft to this 

when the chorus hits tho

I listen to this like 5 times every time it comes up on my dash.

So I guess I have to reblog.

This is some American Horror Story shit

karinta-agogobell-unified asked: Foz, what the heck happened to your awesome feminist posts on writing and culture? Are they a thing of the past now?

Not at all! I’ve just been super busy the last couple of months, what with prepping for, attending and recovering from two cons in September, returning to work for the first time since my son was born, scrambling to meet belated deadlines for other works, and, uh, writing a novel-length fanfiction that sort of pounced on me from nowhere, because apparently one of my sanity check responses when under stress is to write porn. Who knew? But I’ve been mentally cataloging an assload of stuff I want to write about, too, and hopefully in the next couple of weeks, I’ll be getting back to blogging :)

jahloveangel asked: Daja Kusobo is queer? Somehow I missed that the first time I read through the winding circle series. I remember most of what is in that post you reblogged but not about the girl she liked. Do you remember what book that was in? :)

It’s in Will of the Empress - a book that comes after the original two quartets, when the four reunite for the first time since finding their first apprentices.


Rethinking my latest Emelan ‘verse read and- Daja.

black and a woman and gay

tall and broad shouldered and flat chested

ridiculed and scolded by her family for her interest in smithing

cast out and denied acknowledgement of her existence by her people after her whole family died in a terrible accident that left her stranded for days

hated by racists and ignorants for being part of the people who cast her out

afraid to forget her culture and insisting on honoring her religion and family while embracing her love of smithing and craftsmanship

stopping an enormous uncontrollable forest fire as a thirteen year old to save a huge group of the people who cast her out and regard her as cursed and dirty and not even alive

using her new magic that is physically a part of her to do something good and having it backfire in her face and being betrayed by someone she trusted and admired

taking pity on the man who betrayed her and murdered so many and making his death painless

creating things like prosthetic legs and hearing aids along with art

finding love and discovering her sexuality and leaving the woman she loves behind because of principle and morals and how much she loves her foster-siblings

Daja Kisubo, the woman whose heart is strong and bright and as big as her whole body

if you don’t love Daja you are 1000% wrong

longwaytogallifrey asked: Oh my lorde. The piece you wrote about the house, that utter poetry, 'you fear the darkness, little moth,' that was just so utterly breathtakingly beautiful, your language and your words and your references, I want it painted on my wall, I'm blown away. Just wanted you to know that you are an absolutely incredible writer.




Jesus was a homeless Palestinian anarchist who held protests at oppressive churches, advocated for universal health care and redistribution of wealth, before being arrested for terrorism, tortured and executed for crimes against the state, now go ahead and explain to me why he’d vote conservative. I’ll wait.

i’m sorry that’s just the best sentence i’ve ever read

Canon Jesus is so much cooler than American Jesus.
