So many awesome things

I know I've really only been sharing links lately.... nah who am I kidding these links are awesome. I am writing for myself lately, trying to really dig in deep and find all that crazy nightmarish shit that lives in my brain, but it leaves me a bit dry when it comes to blog posts. But these things.... they are awesome! And they must be shared. (I hope I'm not breaking any Tumblr etiquette rules by reposting onto my blog instead of on a tumblr (I probably am), but I don't have one and am not interested in getting one, mainly because I am tired of having so many profiles on so many sites, but I still like to check up on a few good ones.)

This is what I want to say to everyone who thinks "cis" and other new pronouns are ridiculous:
“Bullshit. The point of using someone’s preferred pronouns is to demonstrate that you respect their identity and want them to feel safe around you. If you think grammatical correctness is more important than making other people feel accepted and safe, then you are an asshole.”

- From Anagnori's “A Non-Binary Person’s Guide to Invented Pronouns” (via lottelodge)

Things! GOOD THINGS.

This Indian take on steampunk turned out to be everything I wanted out of steampunk. I love it so much.

Something else I love: I read this HP fanfic a long time ago, and recently sent it to a friend. You can have it too. SO GOOD. Post-DH.

For a long time now I've been trying to revamp my breakfasts. I can't/shouldn't eat eggs, and Frosted Flakes and toast gets old real fast. These trail mix cookies are freaking delicious, and a great on-the-go/running-totally-late breakfast. The ingredients are expensive, but totally worth it and they will last you a while. (I used Craisins instead of slivered almonds, pepitas (pumpkin seeds) instead of sunflower (because why not), and left out the cacao nibs because I couldn't bear buying another pricey ingredient.) I also got Whole Grain Mornings from the library, and loved it so much after flipping through it I immediately bought it. It got a lot of press after it published, and I am just giving you another reason to listen to all that press. It freaking rocks. I love how it is divided into seasons, and then further divided into weekday, weekend, and brunch recipes.

I've started putting sweetened condensed milk into my coffee. Love.

HOLY HELL. Watch this video. It makes my soul burn. Content warning: death and war. But so good. via
