I’m going to trigger warn and read more this because I know it’s a difficult topic for a huge number of people.
We got our engagement photos back! Incredible photography that made us look like fancy people instead of internet weirdos by Amanda Megan Miller. I highly recommend her if you want super fabulous, editorial style wedding photos.

Leave the comfort and luxury of the Empire you’ve always known to embark on a journey to find her and discover the true threat tearing the world of Low Vis apart. Choose where your alliances truly lie as you explore a vast world and do your best to keep it from ending.
The Diviner is a fantasy RPG in the style of Choose-Your-Own-Adventure style stories and text adventures. Reblog for a chance to win a free digital copy of The Diviner and follow us on Tumblr for updates and exclusive content! We can only make this game with your help.
Both the Kickstarter AND giveaway ends on December 20th. Only reblogs count, but if you follow this blog you get an additional entry! The game will have a release date of June 2014, so that is when we will send you your digital copy download!
Reminder that The Diviner Kickstarter is still going on! We’ve hit our initial funding goal, but there’s a lot of stretch goal features that we’d like to incorporate as well!
I went to college with the folks working on this project, and it looks really awesome. The deadline to contribute is coming up, check it out!

I wish people would get outraged and up in arms about things like this on Tumblr, as opposed to some of the other recent drama we are all aware of.
Hello everyone. On Friday, December 13, 2013, my older brother Chris was brutally attacked at work. He works for a tourist hotel in Port Maria, Jamaica, his country of birth and where he lives now. He barely escaped with his life.
[trigger warning: graphic violence]
Four armed men entered the hotel where he works. Employees ran out screaming, fearing for their lives. One of the men had a gun. One of the men had a machete. The other two were ready to fight. Fear filled the air. My brother handles information technology for the hotel. He was in his office working peacefully that day. All of a sudden, the men busted in. While the hotel has security at night, there is none during the day which impacted everyone’s safety. The men may have known this. They came for computers and anything of value. They jumped on my brother. Four men versus one man. His life was on the line. He could not run away but had to fight his way out of there. He did. He wanted to live. He managed to get the gun away from the most dangerous of the four men (which is amazing to me that he lived; so thankful). While he wrestled and fought two men on the ground as one gathered the goods, the other used the machete and chopped his hands, fingers, and head.
He managed to escape. Body hurt. Bleeding. Pain. He got a taxi and went to hospital. The area near the hotel is desolate so he couldn’t walk to one. His hands and head are severely damaged. He needs extensive hand surgery by extremely skilled people. He has ligament, tendon, nerve and bone damage. His thumb had to be re-attached. He has a massive scar on his head as well. He’s dealing with severe inflammation and we are worried about staph infection and gangrene.
Why I created this campaign is that he is not insured and my family cannot cover all of the costs needed to not only take care of his surgery (which we need to happen immediately), but also for him to survive on. He’s a man who cannot work anymore because he can no longer use his hands for now. He has a long road of surgery and recovery ahead of him.
We need the money for the surgery IMMEDIATELY. We need consistent funds for him to be able to survive as he goes through therapy for a while, as well.
We need your help, love and support. Please [DONATE] and SIGNAL BOOST this if you cannot afford to donate. No amount is too small.
Thank you. Take care. ❤

my daily routine:
Dear Caitlin Moran,
Yesterday afternoon I was with my friend and looking through the list of people she follows on Twitter, and your name appeared. I had already heard about you, mostly because your books had been recommended to me. I wondered for a moment if I should follow you too - I’m shy about following celebrities but you’re the type of person someone like me, who likes to think herself a feminist, wouldn’t be ashamed to publically be interested in. My friend, in any case, spoke very highly of you. “And you know,” she told me, “she’s hosting the Q&A of The Empty Hearse BFI event today!”
It was only one more reason to envy you, a massively successful writer only a few years older than me, living a life of highbrow glamour at exclusive events, rubbing shoulders with interesting people. I was about to yield.
Alas, in our Internet age, what a difference a few hours makes.
In a rather spectacular manner, you managed to antagonise an entire fandom made up almost entirely of young, liberal-minded women like me, aka your core readership. How did you accomplish this? On paper, it doesn’t sound like much: you picked an erotic Sherlock fanfic off the Internet and made the stars of the show read an extract aloud for shits and giggles. But while it was most certainly shit, it wasn’t giggles for anyone, and least of all for us.
