- …What is this?

- It’s tea.

Siblings Miila and Wyn sharing tea together (they have the same mother). I wanted to try a different color palette and the outcome was much murkier than I intended. It was a nice experiment nevertheless, just like Wyn’s home brewed tea.

Shit happens

That’s the thing about life- stuff you don’t like is gonna happen. What you get to choose, though, is how you deal with it.

So, I’m gonna define myself- fuck that shit that happened to me, I’m moving on.

Also- fuck depression.

I have experienced a number of these- some of which was from nice people and not flaming assholes.

I absolutely hate the honorary gender swap- I actually had a friend refer to me (in the context of geekdom and especially RPGs) as a unicorn. I’m not a fucking mythological creature! I’m a real person who happens to be a woman and why the fuck does gender matter in geekdom?!?

The ongoing adventures of Alex the Oracle… sort of

I was all set to write up a recap of the goings on in my play by post Urban Shadows game, and then the designers released an update on Kickstarter.

I don’t know how I feel about this- it’s really the first time I’ve played a character before the rules were ‘finished’. Things were changed, added and taken away. Mechanically I’m lukewarm about this archetype- there are a few bits I find really compelling, but when picking moves I ended up having to pick between a few I felt very meh about. I love the idea of the oracle, and how the game is going, but the mechanics… I don’t know. It doesn’t hit something I want it to, and I’m not even sure what that is. There’s also an element of ‘I liked that thing and then they changed it!’ Still sorting out thoughts on it.

Stay tuned for an actual Alex post- she had sexytimes with her dealer who doesn’t love her, let a vampire feed off her, went clubbing with the stuffy wizard, ran away from the horny werewolf and is currently snuggling on the shore of Lake Michigan with a girl who is definitely not human. Fun times!

Also the stuffy old wizard is played by Tom Hiddleston, so I get to imagine him delivering all the wizard’s lines. YUM.

Lavoisier is having none of your shit.

Heeeey so fun fact: the woman in that painting is Lavoisier’s wife, Marie-Anne Pierrette Paulze, who not only acted as Lavoisier’s lab assistant but also translated English and Latin texts into French so he could read them. But she didn’t just translate, she pointed out errors in the chemistry in some of the texts. Her observations of these errors convinced Lavoisier to study combustion, which led to his discovery of oxygen. She was also critical to the publication of Lavoisier’s Elementary Treatise on Chemistry in 1789. She kept strict records of every experiment they conducted together and drew detailed diagrams of all their equipment. She also threw amazing parties and invited all the brightest minds in science so her husband could pick their brains. After Lavoisier was guillotined she secured all of his notebooks and equipment for posterity.
In short: NOBODY KICKS MADAME LAVOISIER OUT OF THE LAB.

Also, a side note: My historian husband-to-be pointed some things out to me about this painting. Notice that Madame Lavoisier is looking at the viewer, and all the light is on her, while Lavoisier himself is physically smaller than her, in shadow, and looking up to her in reverence. This isn’t a candid photograph- all of these choices are deliberate. The painting isn’t of Lavoisier- Madame Lavoisier is meant to be the central subject. 
I can just imagine Lavoisier telling all his colleagues that his wife is really the one with all the clever ideas, and them patting him on the back and telling him he’s sweet for saying so.
