Hi there! I'm Minutia. I write fanfiction, draw the occasional fanart, and burble on about fannish things. I also do other things, but not with this identity.

 

hornetaur:

She had curves in all the wrong places - some of them cast a 3-dimensional shadows, still others hummed a low, discordant note as they flitted about like flies. She was nothing like other girls - she was an abomination from the 6th plane of torment

As you can see I have a lot of spare thinking time which I put to excellent use.

rakkyo-notes:

On a scale of one to Nhi Vanye, how psychic do you have to be to tell when Morgaine is pissed?

On a scale of one to absolutely shitfaced, how drunk do you have to be to think pissing off Signy Mallory is a good idea?

On a scale of one to famous Greek philosopher, how intelligent do you have to be to understand Ariane Emory?

On a scale of one to Gehenna colonist, how clueless are you about the capabilities of the surrounding wildlife?

On a scale of one to Tom Mondragon, how many baths can you take before Altair Jones makes vaguely racist remarks at you?

Bill Sienkiewicz 1990: Classics Illustrated #4: Herman Melville’s Moby Dick

When First Comics and Berkley Publishing joined forces to revive the venerable Classics Illustrated series, Sienkiewicz was attracted to the prospect of adapting a classic book to help transform the image of the comics medium:

More than anything, the superheroes have perpetuated this perception of the medium as being just for children. But that’s like saying, ‘There are only these kinds of movies’ or ‘There are only those kinds of movies,’ and then along comes Citizen Kane. To me, the comic-book medium is a way of using words and pictures together to say more than either the words or the pictures alone.

Wait what

I didn’t know this was a thing

GIVE IT TO ME

e-m-e-t-t:

This was a request from  minutia-r from months ago of young Jason and Christopher playing pranks

My head canon is that Jason is always more cautious than Christopher (for fear of getting fired) and as a result it’s always Christopher who gets caught/blamed (even though he insists that they wouldn’t dare fire Jason after the events in The Lives of Christopher Chant).

Oh gosh, I don’t even remember making this request, but it’s brilliant.

Steven Mithen proposed the term Hmmmmm for the pre-linguistic system of communication used by archaic Homo. beginning with Homo ergaster and reaching the highest sophistication in the Middle Pleistocene with Homo heidelbergensis and Homo neanderthalensis. Hmmmmm is an acronym for holistic (non-compositional), manipulative (utterances are commands or suggestions, not descriptive statements), multi-modal (acoustic as well as gestural and mimetic), musical, and mimetic.[119]
