Hey Tumblr friends! I need your help!

I’m undertaking a new writing project, and I’m researching badass ladies of history. Heroes, Villains, Inventors, Thinkers, Warriors, Poets, Scholars, Rapscallions, Clerics, Leaders and Outlaws. Whatever ladies you got that shook things up and made a difference! Extra points if there is some historical insight into this person’s personal life and/or inner character and philosophy! No historical personage is too obscure OR too well-known, I just want your favorites, regardless of whether you think I am or am not already aware of them!

Cheers, and thanks friends!

Some personal favorite badass ladies of history:

Julie d’Aubigny, duelist, opera singer, serial seductress, and general-purpose badass. 

Ada Lovelace, mathematician, metaphysician, and the first computer programmer.

Ching Shih, the pirate queen who defeated China with a fleet of thousands of junks, and happily retired.

Isabella Stewart Gardner, art collector, philanthropist, adventurer.

Grace Hopper, Navy Admiral and developer of compilers, which allowed for modern programming languages.

The Night Witches, Russian WWII bomber pilots who climbed outside their planes to restart them mid-flight after silent bombing runs.

Tomoe Gozen, female samurai with a penchant for beheading enemy commanders.

If you want a lot more, there’s an entire tumblr dedicated to them: http://badassfemalesinhistory.tumblr.com/

Good luck, and happy writing, Brennan!

Soooo who wants to see my Parafiction exhibition catalogue?
I’m reluctant to share this publicly if only because I know the image credits aren’t really optimally formatted for web stuff and I probably didn’t cite everything I should’ve because I put this together over the course of several days of lots of work and not enough sleep.
Buuuut what the hell, it’s a nice looking document and I’m proud of it and the argument it makes.
Oh, although one last disclaimer—it’s probably better to view this via download because Drive really dramatically compresses PDF images for some dumbass reason, as you can see above.

For those of you who can’t make it to Sam’s incredible exhibition of the Museum of Parafiction in person, here’s the catalogue! I helped with a bit of the research, and the results are spectacular. This is one of the best explanations and examinations of the structures of what may be my favorite art form. Well worth reading through.
At some point I’d love to see and/or contribute to a fuller cataloguing and documentation of some of the more obscure branches of Parafiction and Parafanfiction, as well as the process of de- and re-fictionalization. I’m convinced there’s a book that could be written about Wayfound, the Jejune Institute, and so on. Sam’s done a spectacular job of laying the groundwork here, and I sincerely hope this leads to further work in the field of Parafictional Studies.

goddammit dom

it didn’t even show up in the tag but I saw it anyway you piece of shit

deadbirdlife replied to your post “3, 11, 33, 36”

laughs about the fact that 11 (nearly) applies to us?

does it? that has happened enough times that I straight-up don’t even remember who every instance was with.

well. the person has only woken up twice. the other times they’ve been polite enough to at least pretend to be asleep.

and by polite enough I probably mean uncomfortable enough because like wow come on past me, what a shitty position to put someone in

My first [fictional character] crush was Lord Asriel.

Good. Good. Good.

I endorse this far more than I should.

(Now picture him as Idris Elba. Yeah. Keep picturing it. I’m helping.)

3, 11, 33, 36
  • 3:A fictional person that you think would be good in bed:

I am legitimately having a hard time thinking of a good answer to this because 90% of what I read/watch is YA stuff so I tend to avoid thinking about most of the fictional people I encounter in sexual contexts! Gonna have to keep pondering for a minute.

Oh. Uh. Lord Asriel. I’m not saying I WANT to have sex with him, but seriously, he’d probably be AWESOME in bed. In the Idris Elba sexual apocalypse sense. …now I wanna see Idris Elba play Lord Asriel, holy SHIT.

  • 11:We were about to ____________ but then ______________ [example: we were about to have sex but then his mom walked in]

We were about to move from making out to serious sexy times but then the third person sharing the bed with us woke up. (I am a terrible person. Whoops.)

  • 33:What your favorite part of your body:

My go-to answer to this question for YEARS was my hair, and then I cut it all off! And you know what? It looks AWESOME short. So, uh, yeah, still my hair.

  • 36:What do you wear to bed?

Large sleepshirt, underwear. Current favorite sleepshirts are this one and this one.
