I asked my dad once, how he learned to sew. My father was born in 1952, so I kind of expected him to have some kind of borderline misogynist answer. Instead I got this pearl of wisdom:
Honey, when you’re five thousand feet in the air, and there’s only a bit of fabric between a fun ride down, and going splat, it’s important to know how to sew rips in your own fucking parachute.
I just ran an AO3 search for Veronica/Lamb. I am a bad person.
Oh god it’s turned in to one of those crack ships that ruin your life SEND HELP ITS 4AM
The cold light of day is here and I’m ashamed to say I have no regrets.
PSA: Crack ships destroy lives and sleep patterns.
No but guys seriously I’m braving FFN for this. THIS HAS GONE TOO FAR SOMEBODY SAVE ME BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE OH GODOHGODOHGOD OR WORSE I READ EVERYTHING
I’m going to go and take a bath and think about my life choices.
Please observe Kim’s descent into madness.
Final update: I read everything. EVERYTHING.
I WENT PAST THE POINT OF NO RETURN. THERE IS NO RECOVERY FROM THIS. OH GOD NO I SHIP IT. I SHIP IT SO… SO HARD.
FINAL FINAL UPDATE: I needed thirteen hours sleep to recover from this rabbit hole. NEWS JUST IN: SHIPPING VERONICA/DON LAMB WILL DEFINITELY DESTROY YOUR LIFE AND YOUR SLEEP PATTERN. DO NOT ENGAGE.
Reflection update: Still ship it.
i’ve worked with a lot of universities that use the “consent is sexy” motto, and i get why they do it (it’s a marketing thing). but i do think it downplays the absolute necessity of consent. consent isn’t important because it makes things sexier. it’s important because it prevents rape.

"There are people who are generic. They make generic responses and they expect generic answers. They live inside a box and they think people who don’t fit into their box are weird. But I’ll tell you what, generic people are the weird people. They are like genetically-manipulated plants growing inside a laboratory, like indistinguishable faces, like droids. Like ignorance."
