Let me tell you what the most annoying thing in Urban Fantasy is.
It’s patented Strong Female Characters double-subverting their emancipation. They spend all their time kicking ass and taking names, and then along comes a Hunk, or a Dark Broody Type, and suddenly they rediscover their femininity, which inexplicably means going doe-eyed and knock-kneed in the presence of the Guy. It also makes them weaker. The narration has this smug-ass tone that after all this time of fending for themselves they are oh so lucky to now have a Guy do it for them.
But the absolutely worst part? When they fucking LAMPSHADE it, in this tee-hee-hee tone that suggests that ‘feminism is great and all but do we have to do it all the time?’
“I know this is probably a blow to feminism, but I enjoy using my womanly wiles to get men to do what I want”
“Of course it’s not politically correct, but I want to feel protected by his strong shoulders”
GAH. Someone find me some urban fantasy that doesn’t do this, please.
AUGH THIS BULLSHIT REALLY BAKES MY MOTHERFUCKING BISCUITS.
BEING EXPECTED TO SWAP YOUR POWER FOR A RELATIONSHIP IS NOT A FANTASY IT IS A REALITY THAT IS WHY WE HAVE FANTASY GET YOUR POOP OUT OF MY ICE CREAM ASSHOLES AUGH AUGH AUGH
I see I’ve got to get on writing faster, ‘cause the current crop sure ain’t cutting it. >:[
Yes, it’s annoying.
Working on it.
So I have a million asks now and I didn’t think this through because it’s almost my bedtime. But don’t worry. I’ll get everyone eventually. Last time I did this it took me 4 days to get through all the asks. XD
So please be patient. Thanks everyone! I love talking about rocks! ^__^
And then Cruser did another Rock Meme
Alright I made a decision. I’m doing another rock meme. Send me an ask and I will tell you what 5 rocks I would give you and why. WITH PICTURES!
Not really? I mean, I know I have friends who are attracted to the same stone. But I don’t see a person and go BLUE LACE AGATE! When asked, I do feel like I can give that person a good idea as to what stones would resonate with them well. Or even help them out. A while back I did an ask meme where I would get an ask and then give that person a 5 rock analysis of what rocks would work best with them. Maybe I should do that again. ^__^
OH GOODNESS A STONE QUESTION!!!
Here are 5 stones I would suggest everyone get. ^__^
This is one of the must haves for anyone. It’s great for keeping one grounded and sturdy. You’ll usually find it in it’s polished form. You can also find the magnetic kind. Which make for great bracelets and necklaces. But keep in mind that hematite is quite heavy. So be prepped for that when choosing jewelry.
There are so many types that there should be at least one that would suit your fancy. Each has different properties but I would suggest going for the one that catches your eye. Usually it’s something that you end up helping you. Once you find one you like, look it up for the meaning. There are also the colored slices. I’m personally not a fan of those because the naturally colored ones are just a pretty. ^__^
This not only looks really cool but is great for giving strength in hard situations, and courage to do what is needed.
It’s also great for easing menstrual things. Sometimes it can be hard to find it with the red in it.
This is really good for calming feelings and emotions. It also helps with wanting to love one’s self more. It reminds you that taking care of yourself is first priority. So feel free to do whatever it is you need to do.
There are actually hundreds of types of quartz. But a regular piece will do you a lot of good. It’s an amplifier. Helps with any task and is “programmable” meaning that you can have it help you do whatever you want. This again is a matter of choice as to what catches your eye.
The one’s I listed here are very inexpensive. They can usually be found for 25 - 50 cents for a small rock. Get yourself a velvet pouch to put them in, Those are usually only a dollar or so. And you got yourself a nice set up. ^__^
