An alternate universe where Bruce Wayne died instead of his parents. Causing his father Thomas Wayne to become Batman and his mother Martha to go insane and become the Joker.

THIS IS SO CRAZY

if someone is mean to you, don’t be mean back. talk to them, get to know them, be good friends, find out all the kinds of books/movies/tv series they love

then spoil it

In case you’re just tuning in, I am having some up/down, give/take kinds of animal drama over here.

In the whole time I had Pancakes, only once did a stray/homeless animal come into my world. And that was through a friend who needed a place with a yard (I had one then) to hold him until she found a home. We did, within a couple days.

This week I had the newborn kittens come and be claimed before I could raise my hand.

Now a coworker’s friend has an 8mo/old min pin whom she can’t afford to keep.

If I believed in signs, I would think this was the universe telling me to get a fucking pet already. I know there are lots of reasons not to, but those will always be there: what if I move (that’s why I’m going travel sized), what if I want to get with someone who is allergic (spoiler: deal breaker right there), what if I want kids (not in the next 10 years), what if the animal doesn’t help my anxiety, but instead gives me more to be anxious about?

But most important: do I want the bother and the responsibility?
IF and only IF the dog is a good fit for me, my schedule, my living situation, THEN I yes it’s worth it.

Yes, I do want a dog I can take everywhere (except work/class). Yes, I want a dog who can travel in the airplane cabin. Yes, I want a dog whom I can train to hang out in my bike basket and go on rides along the beach in the summer. Yes I do want a dog who is cool with cats (potential min pin has cat exposure).

“I don’t want people to like her anymore, almost, that sounds really, really bad.I want people to realize that actually she’s not the same anymore. You can’t root for her forever, because she’s not there to be your favorite character. That’s not what she’s there for. She’s real. People go down bad paths and they make bad decisions, but it’s always justified in their head. I want the audience to differentiate that and not just be like, ‘Oh, it’s Arya, we love her.’ Because actually look at what Arya’s doing. She’s being eaten away from the inside out, and she’s not stopping it.” - about Arya

please, seduce me with your post-apocalyptic survival/resistance short stories.

Have you read “soft apocalypse”?

I have not heard of this… Brb, googling…

Reviews look promising, although this hurts me: “Jasper was a sociology major, but those skills are no longer in demand in 2023” (Me too, buddy).

thanks!

I have a friend who honestly did not know that not every job allows all employees to earn Paid Time Off.

its not that hard to get a job
Criticisms about representations of gender (or race and other diversity) are often countered in fandom by sociological or scientific analyses attempting to explain why the inequality happens according to the internal logic of the fictional world. As though there is any real reason that anything happens in a story except that someone chose to write it that way.

Fiction is not Darwinian: It contains no impartial process of evolution that dispassionately produces the events of a fictional universe. Fiction is miraculously, fundamentally Creationist. When we make worlds, we become gods. And gods are responsible for the things they create, particularly when they create them in their own image.

please, seduce me with your post-apocalyptic survival/resistance short stories.

According to People magazineOklahoma teens Katie Hill and Arin Andrews, who are transgender and were in a relationship with each other during their transitions, will share their stories in two memoirs to be published Sept. 30, 2014, by Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers. The book covers, revealed today, are above.

Katie Hill told People"I don’t want this book to just appeal to transgender people or their allies. I want people to understand that there really is no such thing as normal."

I don’t know a lot about this couple but woohoo more YA books by trans people!
