Anybody else got that Evergiven sized writers block

“Where’s the next chapter?!” Well buddy you’re never gonna guess

What’s the comic sans trick?

#i feel like someone just asked me to eat dirt for my health

wingdings’ true purpose as a font

Wingdings holy shit some of y’all are on a whole different level of galaxy wizard brain batshittery and I am in awe.

Comic Sans is good for reading/writing because it was a typeface designed for children based off comic book font, in order to be easier for those learning how to read. This had the unintended result in it being great for learning disabilities, such as dyslexia and dyscalculia – because it is harder for the brain to flip the numbers/letters, if that’s your particular problem. It is an extremely legible font, so it means you don’t have to expend much of an effort when reading it/writing with it.

All of this to say I can 100% see why Comic Sans would work if you’re having writer’s block and I hate that I am even entertaining the notion


insufferable smarty pants might be my favorite term of endearment

(and I ganked it from that episode of JLU where Black Canary and Green Arrow teamed up)


One of the most important thing Tevruden has learned, now that he transforms into a dragon…

…is how he needs to be VERY careful about sneezing.



fun fact:

The “were” in “werewolf” is the same as the “vir” in “virile”.
“were” and “vir” (pronounced almost the same) are Old English and Latin for “man”.

There is no agenda behind my choice of example words. I am not implying anything along lines of monsterfuckery.

although to get off werewolves for a moment (AHEM), this is also why the “man” in “woman” isn’t, like, sexist or anything. The old english word for what we now call “man” was “wer mann” (literally “male person”) or just “wer”. Women were “wif mann” or just “wif”.

“wif mann” evolved into both “wife” and “woman”, but modern english lost the “wer/were” and just called men “man”. That word only still exists as a prefix in words like “werewolf” and the historical term “wergeld”.

The use of “man” to mean “people” also continued in terms like “mankind” (vs “humankind”) and “manned” (vs “crewed”) which weren’t, like, INTENTIONALLY sexist, it was reflecting the older usage. Obviously as times have changed these terms have become problematic, but they weren’t necessarily intentionally sexist to begin with.

But yeah… english lost the gendered term for men (wer). So to someone who speaks old english, we’re calling men just “people” and women “female people”.

Which is interesting, because that’s exactly what we do in BATHROOM ICONOGRAPHY (title of my next album):

The male symbol is just “person”, the female symbol is “person in a dress”.

We don’t, like, draw the man with a beard or something, to try to gender him male. He’s just “person”. Compare to like crosswalk signs and danger signs: that’s just a person symbol. We’ve apparently just decided culturally that men are people (full stop) and women are people who have the additional attribute “woman” attached to them.

gender linguistics, won’t you?
