Uhhhhhhhhh, PASS! I can think of a lot of ways to pass the time.
We had self reflection training today and were asked to draw how we perceived other people ‘see’ us. They whole point was to have someone else look at it and help us see we had a flawed sense of self, but I say my self portrait was pretty spot on.
anywaysrainydays asked: Sending some love your way, K! <3
It’s been too long, friend! I hope all is well with you! Much love right back to you!
Anonymous asked: It's nice to see you writing again. This fandom has missed you, and I hope this is the start of more to come from you! Love, Court
How are you??? It’s good to see one of your messages and I hope that I get some time to read some of your stories soon. I’ve missed you and fandom and all the fun of it!
As for writing again, I can’t say that I’ve returned. It was real cool to be a part of s2sl though. :) I’m just happy to get the chance to occasionally log in to tumblr again, even if it is via phone.
shellibug asked: Just wanted to say thank you for sharing your stories they are fantastic. My favourite is Mrs Hawthorne - in my imagination they continue having amazing sex whenever possible. When they find out later she must have gotten pregnant the first time...
You have reminded me that on my computer lurks an almost finished follow up to Mrs. Hawthorne…I should re-visit that and publish it.
Regarding the possibility of a pregnancy, I’m thinking she just isn’t capable of conceiving because that’s a big burden for a college kid to take on.
I just watched it a few weeks ago! Can you believe that’s how they decided to end it?!?
I just sat there stunned.
Like the whole time I kept thinking ‘too good to be true’, but when what happened was going down I kept thinking that it couldn’t seriously be the end.
But it was, and I’m having trouble dealing.
How to talk to your daughter about her body, step one: don’t talk to your daughter about her body, except to teach her how it works.
Don’t say anything if she’s lost weight. Don’t say anything if she’s gained weight.
If you think your daughter’s body looks amazing, don’t say that. Here are some things you can say instead:
“You look so healthy!” is a great one.
Or how about, “you’re looking so strong.”
“I can see how happy you are – you’re glowing.”
Better yet, compliment her on something that has nothing to do with her body.
Don’t comment on other women’s bodies either. Nope. Not a single comment, not a nice one or a mean one.
Teach her about kindness towards others, but also kindness towards yourself.
Don’t you dare talk about how much you hate your body in front of your daughter, or talk about your new diet. In fact, don’t go on a diet in front of your daughter. Buy healthy food. Cook healthy meals. But don’t say “I’m not eating carbs right now.” Your daughter should never think that carbs are evil, because shame over what you eat only leads to shame about yourself.
Encourage your daughter to run because it makes her feel less stressed. Encourage your daughter to climb mountains because there is nowhere better to explore your spirituality than the peak of the universe. Encourage your daughter to surf, or rock climb, or mountain bike because it scares her and that’s a good thing sometimes.
Help your daughter love soccer or rowing or hockey because sports make her a better leader and a more confident woman. Explain that no matter how old you get, you’ll never stop needing good teamwork. Never make her play a sport she isn’t absolutely in love with.
Prove to your daughter that women don’t need men to move their furniture.
Teach your daughter how to cook kale.
Teach your daughter how to bake chocolate cake made with six sticks of butter.
Pass on your own mom’s recipe for Christmas morning coffee cake. Pass on your love of being outside.
Maybe you and your daughter both have thick thighs or wide ribcages. It’s easy to hate these non-size zero body parts. Don’t. Tell your daughter that with her legs she can run a marathon if she wants to, and her ribcage is nothing but a carrying case for strong lungs. She can scream and she can sing and she can lift up the world, if she wants.
Remind your daughter that the best thing she can do with her body is to use it to mobilize her beautiful soul."
blankawithk asked: Hey, I would like to read your story (Pretty Peeta, isn't it?), could you tell me where can I find it? Thanks a lot!
I wrote it over a year ago for a fic exchange, it’s based off of the movie Pretty Woman but in reverse…so, yeah…Peeta’s the prostitute. It’s as corny as it sounds.
You can find it on ff.net here.
Or, you can find it on Ao3 here.
P.S. Check out this awesome banner by Ro Nordman! I love it!
You mentioned at the end of this fic that you had epilogue or an outtake or smthg that you would post later on, is that still a possibility? Really loved this story.
There is an epilogue! I donated it to s2sl, the fic charity drive, for a small donation you are given access to an entire collection of fics not available to the general population.
For those who donate, the collection will open on February 14. If you are unable to donate at this time there is no worry as the stories will be published in June.
I plan on publishing the epilogue in June for everyone. There is a story teaser a few posts down on my page that gives a glimpse at the epilogue (spoiler alert! things are looking up for Everlark!).
Please check out the s2sl page for more details - I’d link it but I’m working from my cell phone and just struggling to make sure autocorrect doesn’t embarrass me. :)
