Hi! I'm Maria, and this is my collection of whatnots. Feel free to say hi! : )

None of the pictures are mine, unless stated.
A few notes: sometimes NSFW, I post a lot (Seriously- I do), I'm crappy at tagging things, but I'm trying to do better (let me know if you have a trigger or anything that you need tagged and I'll try my best ), and I won't follow you back just because you follow me.

"I wouldn’t necessarily mind people not knowing I’m gay, but I don’t like being thought of as straight — in the same way that I don’t mind people not knowing I’m a writer, but it would be awkward if they assumed I was an extreme skateboarder, because that’s so far removed from the reality of my life. But there is no blank slate where orientation is concerned; we are straight until proven otherwise. And if you’ve never seen how dramatically a conversation can be derailed by a casual admission of homosexuality, let me tell you, it gets awkward."

THIS IS SUPER COOL THOUGH IF YOU UNDERSTAND HORSES. LIKE THAT NIPPING IS A GROOMING BEHAVIOR HORSE’S DO TO BOND AND TO MAINTAIN AND IMPROVE SOCIAL BONDS. SO THAT HORSE IS BASICALLY TREATING THE CAT AS PART OF THE HERD AND SUSTAINING THE FRIENDLY BOND.

IT IS SAYING, “this tiny horse is very tiny but we are friends. Look at my tiny friend.”

what I learnt last night: if you’re imagining a creepy thing in your room or outside and it’s coming to get you, just imagine that it met another creepy thing and they started making out, forgetting you entirely. 

It worked for me

Happy Easter to all Sherlockians!
Acrylics on egg, hand drawn.
As you can see I planned to do more of these, but I will never ever do that again!
I think a big part of my sanity got lost while drawing this. I know the smiley is missing, but I just don’t dare to draw it on the wallpaper… I might ruin it.


WOW

Okay, but trans man Edmund Pevensie, right? He’s constantly being told that he’s getting too old to be pretending to be a boy (and Peter and Susan have started calling him Ed, no longer “indulging” him with Edmund), which has hardened him, made him bitter. His dad’s off at war and he’s stuck out in the middle of the country with his siblings and he just feels so ignored. Middle child, feelings denied, so of course he’s going to go along with this magnificent stranger who calls him a Son of Adam and listens when he speaks.

It takes Aslan acknowledging Edmund as a man before Susan and Peter realize what Edmund has been saying is true. And yes, his betrayal hurts, but now that they realize they’ve been betraying him for so long by denying his words, so how could it even compare? And trust is hard earned, years pass and mistakes get fewer and far between, so he eases a little, where he used to tense up, and relishes this freedom.

Going back to the real world hurts a little more every time. The first time, he stayed in Narnia for so long that he’d almost forgotten what it was like to be referred to as “she.” The first time he’s misgendered (only days in the real world, but decades in Narnian time), it’s in a note from his mother, and he wanders back into the wardrobe and cries. He knows there’s nothing in there but musty old coats and a wooden back panel, but he scratches gashes into the paneling anyway, desperately trying to find a way back in. (Lucy understands. She sits in the darkness with him and rubs his back while he sobs himself sick.)

Then he’s back in Narnia again and Caspian so easily refers to him as king and it hurts just as much as it feels so comfortable, so right. He doesn’t know how long this is going to last, doesn’t know if he’d rather grow up here again or leave before he gets comfortable. 

It’s almost too much when he’s sent back a third time. Eustace learns the truth and seeing Caspian is like coming home and then just like that, his time in Narnia is done. He and Lucy will never come back. He’ll never be called a king or thought of as a son and he trusted Aslan, so why is this happening to him? He should be able to stay in this place where people know who he is and don’t treat him with cruel indifference. But he trusts Aslan, so he leaves.

He returns home with Lucy and Eustace and yes, his aunt and uncle and mother and father still call him a her, won’t call him Edmund, but Lucy will. Eustace does. And Peter and sometimes Susan. And it’s not right and it’s not enough, but if being a king has taught him anything, it’s patience and strength, compassion and discipline. So he bears it, though it weighs down on him. He bears it, though he gets yelled at for binding his breasts and gets caned at school for wearing his hair short and refusing skirts. 

Because he’s always going to have Narnia. Every time someone accepts who he is, a little piece of Narnia returns to him. And he knows, somehow, he’s going to get back to Narnia one day.

crazy things about orphan black: 

  • one actress plays basically every character and they all are completely different its so convincing shes such a good actress
  • the confusion when you find some of the characters hotter than other ones when they are literally the same person

Sabriel by Margot Wood

In the early 1990s, Garth Nix went to a flea market in Sydney, Australia and looked through a box of old, early 1900s photographs that were being sold for a dollar a piece. As he flipped through the photos he came across a photograph of a young woman in a military style coat wearing a belt made out of bells and holding a sword. He studied the photo, wondering who this mysterious woman was. He purchased the photo, took it home and promptly wrote the draft for his young adult high-fantasy novel, Sabriel. THIS DID NOT ACTUALLY HAPPEN. But what if it did? And that, my beautiful friends, is the idea behind this fauxto. I wanted to do something different for my Young Adults fauxto series. I’ve recently been doing character portraits and knew I wanted to do one for Sabriel, but to give it a twist, I wanted to take a fauxto of a real person that would serve as the inspiration for the fictional character. Does that make any sense? Basically, in my imagination, Garth Nix based Sabriel off a real person and I wanted to explore what that woman would look like and voila, you have the image before you.

(Please do not remove credit/description)

My friend Margot (The Real Fauxtographer) has an amazing series where she interprets YA novels into these wonderful, wonderful photos (see also, her Code Name Verity photo, and her photo for Shadow and Bone - amazing).
I had the privilege of sitting for her on her Sabriel photo. Personal bias aside, this is a pretty special photo to me because Sabriel is one of my absolute favorite books ever, and she’s a heroine near and dear to my heart.
When Margot first approached me about this portrait, I shared with her that a lot of readers may disagree with her interpretation because Sabriel is interpreted as white (I mean, it’s pretty canon). Her response -  “you’re pale, you have dark hair, you’re Sabriel” - while simple, is gratifying and validating to me. Not a lot of people would be flexible to the idea of having a POC pose as a traditionally white heroine, making this doubly special, and even more awesome.
View the rest of Margot’s wonderful fauxtos here, and give her a shout on Twitter, will you? She’s pretty funny.

i saw this and thought “omg that looks JUST LIKE reelbs” and then i saw this post and i’m so thrilled it really is you because this series kicks so much ass and this is a really really great interpretation

SABRIEL!

Oh wow, what a cool idea
