I’m going to keep rebloging this until I GET IT DEEP INSIDE IN MY HEAD.
I don’t think I’ve posted this yet - my piece for the Rookery anthology with some other just graduated SVA classmates. The theme of the book was myths and urban legends. I spent my childhood summers on an island in Nova Scotia, and I was always fascinated with seals, and, because of that, selkies.
Disclaimer: I have not made out with a seal. Yet.
I have to reblog this, because I love selkies, and this is a nice twist to the traditional stories I grew up with. I’ve always thought of selkies as predominantly queer anyway, so it’s nice to see that I’m not the only one.
A beautifully done interpretation of the Slytherin dorms.
The pool of water/ceiling light is based on the idea of an aristocratic Roman impluvium/compluvium. Gryffindor has a furnace in the center of the dorm rooms, so it seemed like an nice yin-yang effect as Gryffindor=fire and Slytherin=water. I’m not sure if the compluvium would magically let rainwater (and snow, and hail!?) in from the lake above, or not. I think it should.

I am still upset that an actor as awesome as peter capaldi is the doctor at a time where I have less than 0 faith in the writing/production of the show.
this perfectly summarizes my feelings

I will boost this as much as possible. Seeing ace stories when I was younger would have made a world of difference, and even now that I’m older and know what I identify as, there still aren’t enough stories about people like me. Kudos to HIP for being so proactive about the representation available through their publishing house.
