I’m sorry but if you try to tell me there are only three wizard schools in the ENTIRE magical world I will fight you.

I wanna see Indian wizardry schools

Japanese magic schools where the house ghosts have shrines

Schools hidden in sand dunes and enchanted to look like mirages

American schools hidden in Roswell and Salem

Public magical schools for kids that don’t want to leave home for seven years

GIVE ME ALL THE WIZARD SCHOOL HEAD CANONS!

"Don’t you dare
Shrink yourself
For someone else’s comfort -
Do not become small
For people who refuse to grow."

Underlying conflicts between human characters are dramatized via creaturely metaphors.

People speak less to one another; when they do, they say less of what they mean to say. There is little confrontation and less blame. Shying away from fighting with their human antagonists, they tussle instead with wolf-men and hungry monsters.

"THE MONSTER IMPULSE" by This is the essay that comes closest to articulating the possibilities and limitations of putting real monsters in your stories. Every sentence is truth! 

In other words, elephant in the room —> y no put real elephant in room? = Magical realism.  (via misterracoon)

late-night inspiration. 

"…even at their most fantastical and animal-centric, these stories address a central reality of our real, human world—there are so many malefactors at large that there’s no one in particular to blame. " (via arabellesicardi)

Detachment is a privilege held by people who aren’t targets.

"why are you so emotional about this" - unaffected people

read this. write it on your hand. repeat it to yourself.

so you can never ask me that again

I’m tired of seeing white people treating poor countries as if they were their very special emotional playground.
Racists travel to under developed countries under the guise of ‘appreciating their culture’ or ‘searching for themselves’ (whatever that means) or any other seemingly thoughtful premise.. They enjoy the ‘exotic’ foods, marvel at the ‘exotic’ landscapes, snap photos (without asking first) of those very ‘exotic’ natives.
They have profound revelations about how in the western world we have much more commodities than necessary, and how these poor rural simpletons are so happy with the little they own, cause they’re blissful savages, much less complex than the average white US citizen. 
Some of them even manage to say utterly disrespectful stuff (e.g.’oh look at these people living in the middle of nowhere’ (cameron diaz) or that ‘they defecate in the woods ‘hunched like animals’ (drew barrymore) and the worst part is, they don’t even seem to realize.
… Then they go back to their countries, with a serious white savior complex, and show all their relatives photos those wonderful, smiling exotic natives, just before complaining about illegal immigrants taking all their jobs.

yo! truth

legit, how many popular male leftist/sj/pro-feminist bloggers on here have turned out to be rapists or sexual harassers or pedophiles? its scary how easy it is for these guys to access the rhetoric that makes feminists love them and shield them from criticism
