DAN: When you do interviews, you’re faced with the choice to either be the most boring person on earth or just get ridiculous things written about you from time to time
JOSH HOROWITZ: Sometimes it might be good to be boring
DAN: It might be but I just get bored of myself

I remember reading this book on mythology—like, the mythropes in writing—and it blew my mind that all of that mythology is basically men writing about men and great myths for men, of which there are so many. And then there are only a handful of myths about women and they’re also written by men, so you start to realize that so much of storytelling has been lost in male perspective and you’re either Persephone—innocent, naive, and kidnapped by Hades into the underworld and has to be rescued; or you’re like Athena—unapproachable, vicious and there’s no gradient. And for me, it’s an amazing thing to begin to think about what it means to tell feminine mythology because it needs to be invented, it doesn’t exist; and also, what does inherently feminine storytelling and structure look like?

Sophie’s teeth chattered, but she said proudly: “He’s the best wizard in Ingary or anywhere else. If he’d only had time, he would have defeated that djinn. And he’s sly and selfish and vain as a peacock and cowardly, and you can’t pin him down to anything.”
    “Indeed?” asked Abdullah. “Strange that you should speak so proudly such a list of vices, most loving of ladies.”
    “What do you mean, vices?” Sophie asked angrily. “I was just describing Howl.”

It seems that when you want to make a woman into a hero, you hurt her first. When you want to make a man into a hero, you hurt… also a woman first.


dragons hoard gold and treasure but as far as i can tell they have no use for it as actual currency. dragons dont really need material wealth because they can do whatever they want and no one will sell anything to a dragon (a dragon can just take whatever they want anyway)

possible theories for why dragons hoard treasure:

  • like many species of birds, dragons are instinctually attracted to shiny objects for no other reason except to attract a mate with their beautiful nest
  • their favorite cartoon is scrooge mcduck
  • dragons just enjoy killing/eating rich kings, landowners, aristocrats etc.
  • they intentionally manipulate the global economy by withholding material wealth from the market

Q: Do you think I can use a face claim with soft pretty features for a character who has a strong personality? Like if you use, say, Lily Collins as an FC for Clemence, do you think that will work--don't you think Lily looks too nice? Kind of in a dilemma here for this thing I'm doing. :) Thanks for the help!

I think you can spin a story out of anyone and anything you’re inspired by! Clemence isn’t really defined by her appearance, so I don’t find her faceclaim that important as long as they have the right expressions. If Lily Collins looked pissed off all the time, I would use her as a faceclaim (not that Ellen Page looks pissed. Heck, I think Ellen Page has a baby face, but Ellen has a wry smile that I like). If you feel like soft, pretty features don’t fit your character and you can’t imagine your character that way, then use someone else. Or maybe she has a strong personality that is often ignored because of her pretty features; there can be a story in that.

My general preference is not too glamorous and as age appropriate as possible while not dying over trying to find images. I’m not a fan of Hollywood looks but that’s where the photoshoots are, and I’m not comfortable with using non-celebrity/model images. I actually don’t think a lot of my faceclaims fit, but for me, graphics are more inspiring than the faces themselves which is why you’ll sometimes see me use multiple faceclaims.

Q: Hi! Do you know other cynical badass clemclem-esque women next gen fics? Thank you :)

Devilish Delights, Wicked Ends is regularly updated (unlike etc ;A;) and is already completely written so you should definitely follow it!
