    I’ve been dying to do this entry for a while now. Introducing Shajar-al-Durr, who: was a Muslim sultan that ruled in her own name; stopped the Seventh Crusade dead in its tracks; captured one of the most powerful monarchs in the world; and ransomed him back to his own freakin’ country.

    after what feels like literally the longest week of my life working on it my marauder’s map dress for leakycon is DONE!! as a side note, i literally never want to use another fine point sharpie in my life.

    THIS IS AMAZING OMG

    This is beyond amazing and inspiring.

    This is so so pretty, and in its beauty and the obvious hard work and dedication put into its beauty are clearly representative of Leakycon itself. Obviously I can never go, but I am SO PROUD of my beautimous friends Maureen Johnson and Robin Wasserman for running such a fantastic thing, in which everything runs smoothly and beautifully but in an individual and loving way, and I think all the authors going are amazingly fabulous (go to Malinda Lo and Alaya Dawn Johnson’s panellation! and Holly Black will teach you how to fix your book!). So: LOVELY. Everyone going to Leakycon please enjoy yourselves, get lots of books, and prepare to be dazzled by wonders.

    This is AMAZING. And I am so excited to go to LeakyCon!!

Lady Eboshi was awesome.  You know why?  Because she looked at a town full of abused and exploited women and said “Fuck this shit”
And they said “Look lady these girls are just trying to earn a living”
But Lady Eboshi didn’t take that shit.  She said “Well I’ll buy them and if they want they can come with me.”
"Lady you are hysterical you can’t afford…"
"Fuck you.  I’m paying for all of it.  And you know how?  These ladies are going to work for me.  I’m going to pay them to make iron for weapons and you are going to buy those weapons."
LATER
"Your town is so big and succesful the Emperor wants it.  You better sell out now because all of those natural resources are protected by the Gods so you might as well…"
"Fuck the Gods.  Fuck the Emperor.  Fuck your shit.  It’s my hot town I’ll do what I want."

She also took in men who’d been crippled and were cast out to be beggars and gave them work they could do and plenty of respect and care. Lady was feminist as fuck.

    Self-taught Alaskan sculptor Lee Cross, known professionally as Wood Splitter Lee, creates incredible one of a kind fantasy creatures that are so remarkably lifelike they verge on creepy, which is just one of the things that makes them so awesome. All of Lee’s creatures are completely made by hand without the use of and patterns, molds or casts. Their bodies contain articulated skeletons wrapped with stuffing, making them very soft to handle and fully posable. They’re decorated with carefully hand-applied synthetic fur and paint. As you can see from these photos, some of Lee’s creatures are more fantastic in nature than others, but they’re all amazing to behold.

    Lee’s creatures are available for purchase through weekly Auction Adoptions held on eBay.

    To check out more of her phenomenal handmade creatures, visit Wood Splitter Lee’s DeviantArt gallery.
