Hey guys, announcement

This blog is going to become pretty much inactive, starting probably tomorrow. I waste hours of my life on this site and I don’t even really enjoy it anymore, so I’m avoiding tumblr as much as possible. My book blog will still be active, which means that the main blog on that account (pennameverity.tumblr.com) will probably be somewhat active, too, but really sporadically. So if you still want to follow me, or get in touch with me for whatever reason, that’s where I’ll be.

I’m not deleting my blog, I’m just not going to be logging into this account. I might drop in for premieres and stuff, but that’s about it.

(I’ll reblog this a few times so people will see it.)

Just your daily reminders:

  • Racists are a problem
  • White people are not
  • Homophobes are a problem
  • Straight people are not
  • Transphobes are a problem
  • Cis people are not
  • Sexists are a problem
  • Men are not

And most importantly,

  • Hating an innocent person solely because of their race, sexuality, or gender makes you a fucking asshole

Since Johanna Mason was the only living female victor of 7 for the Quell, I would like to think that when they called up “Ladies first” she just stomped over, grabbed the piece of paper herself and shouted “GEE I WONDER WHO THE FUCK IT COULD BE? HOLY FUCK BALLS IT’S ME I’M SO SHOCKED” and the Peacekeepers have to drag her away from the microphone

man can we collectively join together to change the name of “watersports” to something a little less misleading

i remember the first time i saw that in the description of a fic

i was like “so what, do the characters go to a waterpark or something? kinda weird that the author felt the need to specifically point that out”

spoiler alert

the characters did not go to a waterpark.

i drew a bunch of elves of color!!

This post reminds me of something that happened a few years back.

I once served as art director for a project where the illustration spec called for characters of a variety of races (in the real-world sense, not the Dungeons & Dragons sense - though the latter was involved as well).

We had one particular artist, tasked with drawing a series of elves, who didn’t quite seem to get what that meant. Their output was basically “white elf”, “another white elf”, “white elf with a tan”, “white elf looking a bit pale”, “yet another white elf”, etc.

When this was pointed out, they were like “oh, yeah, now I get it - I’ll totally fix that with my next piece”.

They proceeded to turn in a picture of a blue elf.

In the end, we had to provide specific quotas for specific levels of racial representation in order to get the point across. It all worked out in the end, but it’s stuck with me ever since that this artist examined the original spec, looked at our feedback, and came to the conclusion a blue elf was more plausible than a black one.

In conclusion: this is awesome.

Read that last paragraph as many times as you need to.

trans boys in gryffindor being sent to the girl’s dormitory and then being delighted when the stairs won’t let them up

trans girls in gryffindor being told they can’t go in the girl’s dormitory (and maybe shown what happens by some cis boy) and then trying it and finding that the stairs DO let them up

Gender fluid gryffindor students falling down as the steps to the girl’s dormitory unpredictably turn into a slide.

you’re a good egg

what if people’s hair changed color based on their emotions

like one day you’re out getting a cup of coffee and you notice some cutie in the back of the coffeeshop and your hair starts turning bright pink and you do you best to try to hide it but you can’t help but look over and

they’re just sitting there, staring at you, their face as flushed as their locks
