Hanako and the Dangers of Allegory

Can I tell you a secret? I have absolutely no idea what's going on.

bakarians:

In Love and Death - Part 1: When All That's Left is You--Chapter 22: Hard Goodbyes - Part 1

Good news, bad news, more good news, maybe more bad news.

New fic chapter. Finally. The early onset of fall seems to have put me in a writing mood, for today at least.

This is the start of my favourite chapter of this fic thus far. However! The second part is where all the really good bits are, and I still have to edit that more. Here’s hoping this string of writing motivation lasts a bit so I can get it done for you. Because…

This is the last chapter that is actually written in any form beyond stream-of-consciousness outlining. So I have a LOT of writing to do. Expect a longer-than-usual hiatus. Sorry.

For now… enjoy this. And then hopefully enjoy part 2 soon. And then I AM SO SORRY ABOUT WHERE YOU WILL BE LEFT HANGING!!!!

Author Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself) recounts a bloody memory of MythBuster’s Adam Savage, and Adam puts Gollum on the phone for a performance of “I Will Survive” at Minnesota Public Radio’s Wits.


If you haven’t seen this, you should see this. It will cheer you up, if you need cheering up.

Wits is the best.

When you are an affluent-seeming white man and you ask for things that don’t belong to you, sometimes you’re not really asking. It’s sort like Bill Clinton asking Monica Lewinsky to have sex with him. There’s a context behind the asking.

When you ask a serviceperson for something that doesn’t belong to you, there is often a subtext of, “If I complain to your manager, you know your manager is going to listen to me. Just look at me, and look at you.”

And sometimes, of course, this is not the case at all, and you’re just being a garden-variety annoying customer. Or a bully.

If you seem to be “getting everything you want,” you should probably examine whether you’re getting it at someone’s expense, or whether you’re just constantly, in small ways, making the world worse.

I’ve been trying to find a way to put this into words. I’m glad someone managed to.

I like how the original title for The Fault in Our Stars is all poetic and then the Norwegians just translated it to “fuck destiny” and I think that’s beautiful

Aw man, I thought for sure this had to be bullshit but nope


Why is it always Norway

Norway, a nation where you can put the word “fuck” on the cover of a young adult novel.
