The Slow Dance of the Infinite Stars

Your taste in music, I trust a great deal, so if you do the Antho-based mix (or even CoT-based, for that matter), it’ll be a good listen!

Ahhh thank you darling, that means so much to me *blushes happily and hugs you tight* <3 I only hope I can live up to the expectations ;-)

I am definitely making a CoT fanmix, I have too many sighing thoughts about our beloved idiots not to at least make the attempt. I fear there may be rather a lot of the same artists on both playlists, but oh well! That just means I listen to emotionally compromising music, right? *grins impishly*

I’m trying to create a Newt/Hermann playlist, and I keep dithering between making it solely PR-based or inspired by dearest irisbleufic - and of course Designations keeps creeping in - and I’m worried it’s going to be a disjointed mess and the few people who listen will wonder what the hell I was thinking when I made it. I’m so bad at this. :/ 

I just really want to do something to feel a part of this fandom…

I don't know who Ayn Rand is. Should I change that or just let it lie?


Imagine the baby that would result from a night of passion between Ebenezer Scrooge (before the spirits changed his ways) and Mr. Krabs from Spongebob. Now imagine that baby grew up and married the baby that would result from a night of passion between Yzma from the Emperor’s New Groove and Mr. Burns from the Simpsons. Now imagine the newlyweds had a baby of their own, and that baby was raised aboard a Ferengi Starship, where she was tutored in empathy and compassion by Lord Voldemort. Now imagine that baby grew up and someone told her that any opinions she might have or conclusions she might reach are based on objective logic and reason, and that anyone who disagrees with her is simply being irrational. Now multiply that person’s greed and heartlessness by 100 and you’ll begin to see something that comes close to resembling Ayn Rand.


if you want to ask a bisexual or asexual person about their sexual history to verify that they’re queer, but you don’t want them to take it the wrong way, try this useful communication technique:

give them twenty dollars and go away.


This otter is very polite and a good person.

mulder/scully, fireflies

The baseball bat is propped up against the wire fence, the arc lights long since switched off. The autumn crickets are still small, their chirps a soft wave that will be a roar before the month is out. Mulder sits on the damp grass, elbows resting on his knees, and Scully sits beside him, legs stretched out and ankles crossed, looking more relaxed than she has in an age. 

Stars. Millions of them glittering against a velvet-black sky, and every few seconds —

"There’s another one."

Scully rolls her eyes, unseen, smiling in the darkness.

"Are you going to announce it every time?"

"No — another, right there."

She sighs loudly, fidgeting enough to feel that the dew has soaked through to her skin. 

"They’re just fireflies, Mulder. You see them every year."

"And every year they’re just as beautiful as the last."


A beat, blessed silence; then Mulder, who’s never been able to let go the last word, says, “Did you know if you wish on a firefly, that wish will come true?”

"It will not."

"It’s true! Try it, Scully."

She can just see the outline of his face set against the light of a crescent moon, but she can’t see his eyes. Her own linger on the fullness of his lips… 

"All right," she replies, low, and waits for the next little glow to come. She feels drowsy, languid in the late summer warmth - leans back on her elbows and looks up at the sky.

"There," Mulder whispers. Scully closes her eyes, makes a wish.

And when she opens them again, her wish has come true.

*sighs happily* <3

When’s your birthday? 12 September (36 in a fortnight! Eeeep)

Where are you from? The uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the galaxy, on an utterly insignificant little blue-green planet orbiting a small, unregarded yellow sun.

What’s your favourite colour? Purple!


Got a favourite band/artist? Muse, Tori Amos, The Divine Comedy

Favourite number? It’s such a cliché, but 42. I also have a fondness for the number 7, and all it metaphorically (and metaphysically) represents. Musical scales, chakras, heavenly virtues/deadly sins, etc.

Favourite drink? Cold - peanut butter milkshakes and mango bubble tea smoothies. Hot - Coffeeeee. Preferably of the frothy and flavoured variety.

What were you playing? :)

Hehe okay so don’t laugh, but it was Burrows and Bunnies, an RPG based on Watership Down :D

It’s not a game I’d played before, but is a surprising amount of fun! Who knew leaving the warren on a quest for the chief rabbit could be so exciting? Seriously, it sounds like fluffy rubbish, but just tonight my character had a prophetic dream featuring a pretty terrifying, giant skull faced rabbit surrounded by the dead and we fought and killed a fox in an epic (and extremely bloody!) battle for survival. I normally play Call of Cthulhu, Vampire or D&D, but this was great, and I’m definitely looking forward to the next session. :) 

Feeling curious? Ask me anything

Reblog if you want your followers to ask you anything they’re curious about.


Hell yes…let’s get this thing rolling 



Gingerhaze’s recent comic and excellent smackdown of those who would dismiss her has highlighted once again the fact that being a comic fan can be an intimidating and anxiety inducing experience, and how vitally important it is for everyone to feel accepted in stereotypically straight white…

I am endlessly grateful for the fact that my local comic store is Dave’s Comics in Brighton. Access to somewhere that is excellent for comics - and wholly without pretension or judgement - is brilliant. 

See, I’m used to a lot of the awful misogynistic bravado that flourishes in certain spaces (I worked as a DJ for 10 years). And it’s easy to anticipate the sort of reactions that Gingerhaze so beautifully articulated; they happen all the time, pretty much everywhere. 

So to find a comic shop that isn’t just accommodating, but is outright welcoming, it’s one of those things that it’d be so good to be able to take for granted. It’s awesome

Generally, the things we’re into, there will always be someone telling us that, for whatever reason, we shouldn’t like them. And the people telling us this are often fiercely (misguidedly) protective of something that isn’t theirs to protect. It’s for all of us, (and it’s all of us who are creating it), and destroy anyone who tries to tell you otherwise

And when you have fantastic people like neverrwhere inviting you to come in, to ask your questions, to find out what you like - or might like - these are the people who are worth engaging with. Not the people who are telling you to doubt yourself for even being curious, because really, those people are…dull.

I just found this post, thank you so much Muffy! <3

And as always, if anyone has questions about comics please don’t hesitate to ask! :)
