i think there’s been a mistake
No it isn’t
Congratulations, you are now the President of the United States
|The US Government:||We're not going to make it federally mandatory for people to get paid a wage they can actually live off of|
|The US Government:||If people want to make a living, they'll just have to work 16+ hours a day|
|The US Government:||And if their kids end up disenfranchised because of a lack of parental involvement, well that's not our problem|
|The US Government:||In fact, what is our problem is creating a system that will funnel these disenfranchised youth into our prison system so they can work for corporations (that promise us money) for damn near free|
|The US Government:||If they don't want to fall victim to this system, then they can seek higher education|
|The US Government:||Except such an education will be inaccessible to most disenfranchised people and skewed in favor of the financially stable|
|The US Government:||And we're not going to make intervention programs like sex education and conflict resolution federally mandatory, because that's the parent's job|
|The US Government:||The parent who is working 16 hours a day|
please stop making comics about the stereotypical jock boy beating up the stereotypical nerd boy and somehow incorporating love. do not write them under posts about physical indicators of soulmates (glowing chests, names on wrists) and better yet, don’t reblog that shit when you see it!
stop living in this weird fantasy world where anyone’s secretly meant to be with their abuser forever. I can’t believe this is a text post I need to make
why do people say they “lost 2-0”. this is so confusing. please say “lost 0-2”.
Finally getting around to this! ^___^;;;
I was tagged by cannongreenleaf.
Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag
10 (fuck that I’ll tag like three or four) friends, plus me so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.
I’m going to cheat a little; some of these entries are entire series. :P
1. Abarat, by Clive Barker.
2. Lirael, by Garth Nix. Lirael was really the first novel I can remember where the world the author created had a palpable sense of depth, of time and history and layer upon layer of untold stories that the plot of the novel itself only scratched a brief trail through. Creating that same richness of setting has been my goal ever since.
3. Soon I Will Be Invincible, by Austin Grossman.
4. Thunderer, by Felix Gilman.
5. The Prince of Nothing, by R. Scott Bakker. I won’t go so far as to say that any of Bakker’s books are actually good (“repulsive” is probably a more apt word), but Prince of Nothing definitely was a revolution in the way I thought about…well, about thinking.
6. The Circle of Magic series by Tamora Pierce. Baby’s first expedition into polyshipping! :P
7. In Small Things Forgotten, by James Deetz. (This one is nonfiction.)
8. Banana: the Fate of the Fruit That Changed the World by Dan Koeppel. (Also nonfiction :P).
9. S. Andrew Swann’s Moreau Trilogy.
10. The Night Lords novels by Aaron Dembski-Bowden and Lord of the Night by Simon Spurrier.
