PEACHES

THEIR PEACH NOTE IS MY FAVORITE

Brackett was twenty-four in 1939 when she joined the Los Angeles Science Fiction Society and had her first story published a year later (“Martian Quest” for Astounding Science Fiction magazine.) She belonged to a close knit community of pioneering science fiction fans and writers that included Ray Bradbury and Edmond Hamilton – the latter of whom she married (the former of whom serving as best man.) Bradbury remembers meeting Brackett for weekly writer’s meetings at the beach. “I would bring along a new short story (dreadful) and she would let me see one of her Planet novel chapters (beautiful) and I would praise hers and she would kick hell out of me and I’d go home and rewrite my imitation of Leigh Brackett.””

Hey, geek boys! Yet MORE women who’ve been there longer than you. Without her there’d have been no Star Wars!

It is so hot here…

fuckyeahplussizealternatives maybe?

definitely, thanks!

i co-run a blog called witchvogue which might be what youre looking for

Oh, cool, I’ll look at it.

hey, are there any active body-positive fashion blogs that aim more for a gothy aesthetic? Most goth fashion blogs feature one type of body, and most body-posi fashion blogs I’ve found are more cute/preppy/rockabilly. I’m looking for stuff with a wider variety of body-shapes and no body-shaming or diet talk or ED promotion.

Can be on tumblr or off.

It’s not a bathroom, it’s a PISS GRAVEYARD.

They’re not pants, they’re an ASS CAGE.

It’s not a vacuum cleaner, it’s a CHOKING ROBOT.

It’s not an alarm clock, it’s the METAL AWAKENING.

I just played a video of kittens mewing and laughed at Anne as she wandered around, anxious, looking for the kittens.

She’s looking at me now like ‘where are you hiding the kittens? Are the kittens OK?
