I <3 this so much.

An ongoing series of short essays on the “emotional, artistic and political landscape” (i.e., the 90s in America) the Animorphs series was written and set in. Each essay is centred around a single book and uses its plot and themes as a launchpad.

My girlfriend, who's a few years older, is probably more of a 90s child than me – you know, Star Trek, Teen Titans, Xena… My pop culture memories only go up to elementary school; I remember watching Mr. Dressup and Sesame Street; later, not being interested in either the Spice Girls or the Backstreet Boys; and around fourth grade, not being interested in The Matrix (until later when I was a teen, when I heard it was Philosophical).

Glory - new character design by Ross Campbell for revival

This character design is my inspiration. This image is my desktop background (overlaid by a bunch of files that are my recent digital sketches) and I even set my colour scheme to match.
That's not a character that looks like she has super-powers, that's a character that looks like she's just straight up wrecking everything she can with pure brute strength.

I am excited about a series I have never read before! I tend to go deep into the catalogues of a small pool of authors/series/music artists I've already tried, which means that… yeah, I'm missing out on a lot. I'm glad I heard about Glory while link-hopping on one of the women-in-comics Tumblrs that I read.

I was gonna do a separate post on them – and maybe I still should – but I’ll list them off the top of my head:

And I was going to withstand the temptation to pick up Alan Moore’s Supreme (set in the same ’verse), but I already prefer it over LoEG: Century or The Courtyard/Neonomicon (with the magic rape and eldritch creature rape, respectively).

Perhaps I’m being over-enthusiastic, but still!

Next week:

  • sketches from my “Phosphorescent Vampires” nebulous story – I’ve been trying to do one per day, but that has flagged since midterms are coming next week. Also, I have to find a better image host than Twitter.
  • a post expressing my undying love for Mark Does Stuff
  • art recs for Garth Nix’s Old Kingdom trilogy (Sabriel, Lirael, Abhorsen + “Nicholas Sayre and the Creature in the Case”)

Also, Neil Gaiman has a Tumblr. Just puttin’ it out there.

DarlingClandestine Perfume: Whitefall

Sir, we don't want to deal with Patience again.

a smidge of black tea, buttered oatmeal, hazelnut and maybe some almond milk, and the slightest hint of musk. Comfy sleepy times. […] topped with sweet toasted basmati rice and finished with a whiff of gunsmoke, horses, leather and a rustle of kicked-up grass. :) It's VERY intense, and no power in the ’Verse can stop it.
