$2,500.00 Titanium and Gold Lip Pearl Linerlock

This knife is from Suchat’s New Diamond Edition. This liner locking folder features a carved Robert Calcinore Mosaic Damascus blade. The handle has carved titanium bolsters, carved gold lip pearl scales with pink/green/yellow stone inserts, carved matching Damascus rear bolsters, and carved and anodized titanium liners and back-spacer.

So this isn't really a question but the other day I started following you because I saw your response on a text post and thought it (along with your blog when I checked it out) was really cool. But I just realized you are also the author of one of my favorite book series from when I first started reading! So I just wanted to say thank you so much! Your books are wonderful and definitely some of my all time favorites :)

dduane:

Thank you very much! It’s the Net Force books we’re talking about, yes? Those were a lot of fun to do. :) Glad you liked them!

On today’s episode of: I had no idea one of my favorite authors actually wrote one of my favorite childhood book series. NOW I KNOW.

Any advice for a bisexual lady who feels guilty sometimes about noticing the hotness of other ladies b/c they get enough of That Sort of Thing from Men? I don't think I'm creepy but sometimes I feel like I'm betraying the sisterhood by being attracted to them.

gyzym:

Oh man I know this feel SO HARD. I actually have a dude friend who I fight with about this particular concept all the time, because if he’s like, “Damn, that girl is so pretty,” I’m like, “Fuck yeah she is!” but if he’s like, “Damn, let’s stand here and stare openly at the crowd of women walking by in tiny shorts,” I’m like, “Don’t be a pig,” and he’s like, “I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY THIS IS DIFFERENT TO WHAT WE DID BEFORE.” In fairness to him, I can see how it could be confusing. In fairness to me, openly staring at women like they’re animals is disgusting and he should stop. 

I think — and this goes for all people about all people — the most important thing is to be respectful of others. You don’t have to feel guilty for being attracted to women — you’re attracted to women! Noticing women you’d be interested in doing the horizontal mambo with come with the territory, and there is nothing inherently wrong with that. Where the guilt comes from, I think, is that we were raised in a culture that objectifies women to such a degree that it has actually, in our minds, equated being attracted to women with objectifying them. But that is not the situation! By all means it makes sense to feel guilty in the event that you catch yourself behaving in a gross or objectifying way — cat-calling, openly drooling, standing in the middle of the street staring, following a woman around whistling, touching a woman without their permission, expecting or feeling owed sex from a woman for more or less any reason, harassing a woman in any way. But I don’t think someone who was doing those things would be sending me this ask, so I’m pretty certain you don’t have anything to feel guilty about. Attraction and objectification are not the same thing, no matter how hell-bent popular media seems to be on convincing us they are. <3 

I'd like you to know that the other night, I made sure everyone got Ashiok's pronouns right. Then I beat Ashiok up because Ashiok was summoning nightmares.

You go, Tom. Four for you.

Let’s be real: I love Ashiok dearly as a character, and, as an Oneiromancer, would FIGHT THE LIVING HECK OUT OF THEM if I ever ran into them in the multiverse. They are the embodiment of everything I oppose! So, good work fighting those nightmares. Keep it up.

I just remembered I totally have another nonbinary character for you: Ushiromiya Lion, from Umineko No Naku Koro Ni

Word! I have not seen Umineko, so I will take your word for it.

That brings my count up to like… nine, total. Hey, at least we almost broke double digits!

And most of those are from anime. Bloop.

The list of canonical human* nonbinary characters I have personally encountered, for the record:

—Crona (Soul Eater)

—Envy (Fullmetal Alchemist)

—Hanji Zoe (Attack on Titan)

—Haruhi Fujioka (Ouran High School Host Club)

—BMO (Adventure Time)

—JD (Shades of A)

—Desire (Sandman)

—Ashiok (Magic: the Gathering)

*or at least pseudohuman; I’m leaving out alien or fantasy races that have different ideas of gender, because that’s an entirely separate category.

oi, it's slightly edited but I've still got a Second Age url too (sorry if message doubled, not sure if it sent)

Arright, fair enough, so there’s two left.

Wrecked by Romance asked:

I fell in love with a girl. She knows my feelings, but not that said feelings are hurting me. What do I do?

Dear Wrecked by Romance,

Love is tricky, and giving advice without knowing the details is a good way to muck things up even further. Are things like “caution” and “sensitivity” going to stop us? Hell nah. Prepare to get carpet-bombed by wisdom. For startsies, good job telling her in the first place. Pat on the back, A+. But it doesn’t end there. She knows you’re into her, but not that it’s hurting. Our advice is to spill the beans, tell her everything. She’s a full human being, probably a real badass, too. She can take it, man! What, your little feelings are gonna upset this golden Athena? Not likely, bro. Honesty might hurt in the short run but is the only way to move forward, out of your hellish love-purgatory. Maybe you’ll get rejected, which is scary, but COURAGE ONLY EXISTS IN THE PRESENCE OF FEAR. Go be courageous. If you get rejected, eat ice cream and play videogames and cry till you feel better. Could take a while, but it gets better.

-Mike and Roy

there’s a sort of terminal between timelines, and two time-travellers’ paths cross- both of whom repeat and redo and trap themselves in a hell of their own choosing in order to bring happiness to their beloved.

and when their god is in their heaven, everything is all right in the world.
