Ahahahaha my dash just became that Fingersmith announcement literally five times in a row with nothing in between. Y’all are quality humans. 

Park Chan Wook has finally decided on his next project: Agassi (아가씨, literally meaning “young lady”) will be an adaptation of Sarah Waters‘ Fingersmith, a period crime novel that follows young female thieves (called, you guessed it, fingersmiths). However, the location will be switched from Victorian London to Korea under Japanese rule.

Sex is much better as an apperitif than dessert.

dashcommaslash replied to your post “lbmisscharlie replied to your post: “Another dating catch-22 from HBBO…”

I feel like it’s better to start the date at someone’s place with a bit of drinking or smoking and then kissing or sex. Then you can go out to dinner feeling relaxed and just get to know each other wo wondering whether it’s a date.

I somehow missed responding to this at the time, but hello my name is HBBO and I endorse this message 100%. I am also all about the sex first then dinner model in general, even after I know I’m dating someone. Sharp-edged sex that works up an appetite, followed by leisurely drinks + food is so much better, IMO, than starting with a heavy meal that leaves me lethargic come sexin’ time.

Hey, sounds like quite a lot of my ficcing life. Didn’t know that quote though. You’ve got it covered. And I’ll point out the boardwalks.

Awwww, thank you, you’re a treasure. Gins says the latest draft is closer to what I need, and we worked out a direction to take the editing. So those are two pieces of good news.




So I needed a way to alert the class that I was going to be showing graphic pictures of genitals on my presentation so I decided that putting this on the slide before would work


I want this on a shirt.

Please, I want this on underwear

Italian artist Luigi Prina is a retired architect who has spent the last 20 years designing and hand-constructing incredibly beautiful flying ships. Luigi has now created over 200 flying ships, which hang from the ceiling of his studio, turning it into an extraordinary space.

But these exquisite ships don’t need to hang from a ceiling in order to look like they’re flying. Perhaps the most amazing part of this tale is that Luigi’s delicate flying ships can really fly:

"The designs are made out of very thin paper and balsa wood and the propeller is powered by an elastic band that carries the extremely light vehicles—weighing no more than 2 ounces—through the air. Prina is passionate about aviation and literature and combines those two interests into telling beautiful stories with his winged bicycles and boats."

Yes, dearest Vita: I do miss you; I think of you: I have a million things, not so much to say, as to sink into you.

Anonymous asked: Was rereading a passage from a college anthropology article discussing phone sex workers (Lip Service on the Fantasy Lines by Kira Hall) speaking about the art of using descriptive language to create a whole erotic scene. The connection between performance storytelling and erotica reminded me of discussions I've seen on here.

That sounds super interesting, Anon! I’ll have to check it out; thanks for the rec. :-)

Anonymous asked: hello! just a thought wrt your new theme, but i cannot seem to find a "next page" button? perhaps i am looking in the wrong places

It has infinite scroll, so there aren’t really pages?

Hurrah! What’s that one quote? A draft is already perfect merely by existing? :)

Oh my god that is desperately untrue but you are an angel for saying so. <3 <3
