cherry bomb // the runaways
can’t stay at home, can’t stay at school
old folks say, “you poor little fool,”
down the street i’m the girl next door
i’m the fox you’ve been waiting for

My partner and I did this same cosplay pair a couple years ago.
one of the worst things about becoming educated on social issues is when people are like ‘you used to have a sense of humor’
no i used to have internalized prejudices which i’ve worked really hard to overcome and i realize now that your jokes are shitty
Always reblog this because becoming more socially aware makes you dislike a lot of people
You have the right to choose whom you engage with, and when, and you get to decide how that engagement takes place. People who are not treating you with respect and giving a conversation their full attention are not worth your time, and you know who those people are. Maybe you’ve been socialised to ‘be nice’ and always take people seriously, but this is an attitude that reinforces structural oppression — if you’re too wrapped up in answering every Tom, Dick, and Harry, you can’t get on to the real work, which is way more important. They’re aware of this, too, using your frustration and anger as tools of distraction to draw you away from other things you could be doing.
Having received Rand’s blessing at Mysterium, my Black Ships fabric is officially up for sale on Spoonflower! I wholly recommend ordering it on the Silky Faille to get those rich blacks.
It’s based on one of my favourite Easter Eggs in the game, the bolt of Black Ships fabric you find hidden in Sirrus’ room on Stoneship. I took the opportunity to update the pattern for the post-Hypercard generation; if Sirrus is wearing it, I figure it deserves a bit more opulence.
I put my first pattern up for sale on Spoonflower! If you like Myst then this is probably pretty cool, but if not WHATEVER it’s still cool
