Hello, my name is Strong Female Character, and my secret power is reaffirming the heterosexuality of the disproportionately male cast.
"Except when I’m black, and then you must keep me 5000000000 feet away from any man. No matter his race. Because I’m a strong independent [black] woman that doesn’t need a man… or some shit."
A character can still be a great character without being a good person.
In fact, some of the best characters are terrible people.
Because a character’s worth should be based on how complex and interesting they are, not their morality if they were real.
I keep saying that when people give me the stink eye for loving Cersei!

As a librarian THIS IS SO TRUE. Good covers make or break books. Make it too feminine looking, a boy will never touch it (maybe you’re marketing to girls, but it seems like sometimes that’s cutting off a demographic depending on the book). Make it too dated looking or cheesy and NO ONE will touch it. Many a good book has been doomed by an ugly ass cover.
A book store owner and I were just talking about out facing books and how important that is the other day. You’ve got to flip the cover out to be visible because the cover is what makes you PICK THE BOOK UP.(via artisticfangirl)
Do you guys think we could ever live in a world without any crime? In high school, I had this discussion with my sociology teacher, and one theory was no, we can’t. Even if we had a world without murder, rape, and all that, the definition of crime itself would change in the hypothetical community. So perhaps something like dropping plates will have as much penalty as murder. And by this theory, a Utopian community can never exist.
