Rev Sekou kneeled between protesters and police and prayed, then was thrown into a police vehicle with blood smears all inside of it.

""Ah, Detritus."
The troll saluted.
“You’ve got your bow, I see. Treated you well, did they?”
“Dey called me a ficko troll,” said Detritus darkly. “One of dem kicked me inna rocks.”
“Was it this one?”
“No.”
“But he is their captain,” said Vimes, stepping away from Tantony. “Sergeant, I order you: shoot him down.”
In one movement the troll had the crossbow balanced on his shoulder and was sighting along the massive package of arrows. Tantony went pale.
“Well, go on,” said Vimes. “It was an order, sergeant.”
Detritus lowered the bow. “I ain’t dat fick, sir.”
“I gave you an order!”
“Den you can do wid dat order what Boulder der Lintel did wid his bag of gravel, sir! Wid respect, o’course.”
Vimes walked across and patted the shaking Tantony on his shoulder.
“Just making a point,” he said."

His Grace, His Excellency, The Duke of Ankh; Commander Sir Samuel Vimes inspired me when I started reading Discworld. He made me want to be a cop. To carry the law and justice to the oppressed and abused as he did, to be “straight as an arrow, (never to) be corrupted, (never to) be turned, never (take) a bribe.” Sadly, I don’t think I could ever truly be a cop. I don’t think it’s in me to go through the training and subordinance to get to the point where I could do the eternal Watchman justice.

a new zine called shitty horoscopes that i’ll be premiering this year at the Toronto Queer Zine Fair, among other things! hopefully i’ll make volumes available for online purchase soon. credit where credit is due: this was inspired by the huge number of made-up horoscopes floating around tumblr lately, and angry-poems.

Why is mine so accurate?

I feel like this could be from Welcome to Night Vale and at the same time is extremely accurate.

I am aquarius. Mine is accurate.

""I feel," said Blind Io, "that if we wanted people to fly, we would have given them wings."
“We allow broomthtickth and magic carpeth,” said Offler.
“Ah, but they’re magical. Magic… religion… there is a certain association. This is an attempt to subvert the natural order. Just anyone could float around the place in one of these things.” He shuddered. “Men could look down upon the gods!”
He looked down upon Leonard of Quirm.
“Why did you do it?” he said.
“You gave me wings when you showed me birds,” said Leonard of Quirm."

That last line is so powerful.

I’ll let armor design get away with a lot of things

but not boobplate

never boobplate

Boobplate is acceptable to me when the armour isn’t meant to be protective. But ceremonial armour really isn’t that common…

There has been a tragic misunderstanding about what kind of web the ethernet port provides access to.


Oh my God this is so adorable it broke me. I could not actually form a vocalization, let alone words, looking at it.
